According to this tweet, Tony Khan actually got permission from TNT to run long tonight, instead of promising it but never delivering. Good thing, because tonight's card has SEVEN MATCHES.

-- ROH Television Championship: Minoru Suzuki (c) vs. Samoa Joe
-- AEW World Tag Team Championship: Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus (c) vs. reDRagon
-- CM Punk vs. Penta Oscuro
-- Trios Match: Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz vs. Chris Jericho, Jake Hager & Daniel Garcia
-- Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland vs. Ricky Starks & Powerhouse Hobbs
-- MJF vs. Shawn Dean
-- Marina Shafir vs. Skye Blue

Having Joe fight for the ROH Television title, after the Pure Championship was defended weeks ago? Great.

Advertising seven matches and only one is a women's match (and a probable squash at that)? Not so great.

I might have posted this before, but it's great to be free to enjoy ROH again, now that it's free from Sinclair.

So many great things happening at this show, but one thing that made me LOL was Nyla Rose getting a cake smashed in her face, beating up Thunder Rosa, and shouting "Jokes on you! I love cake! And violence!"

"Jokes on you! I love cake! And violence!"

Especially after Toxic Attraction's ridiculous oversell of a couple of Super Soakers the night before.

I love cake! And violence!

If I can’t buy this on a tee shirt at Double or Nothing next month Tony Khan doesn’t know anything about making money.

So, I'm going to include my thoughts on Saturday's "Battle of the Belts" here too: If Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti are going to try and get over as tweeners -- that is, a vaguely heelish but also smitten in love couple -- then their opponents America's Top Team have to be worse. And other than Dan Lambert's annoying MAGA presence, nothing they do is so terrible that half the crowd isn't chanting for Scorpio Sky. So either everyone here is meant to be a tweener, or the booking needs adjustment. Now that Sammy has the belt again he should go full-on in one direction or the other.

Also, I'm delighted that Dalton Castle finally made it onto television again:

"I am going to land this bitch in the river, and you... will stuff my duvet!"

Dalton Castle not being either a mainstay of NXT 1.0 or a day-one AEW signee is absolutely inexplicable to me.
