ROH on HDNet: Episode 5

Philadelphia, PA – 3.1.2009

Eddie Kingston vs. Sami Callihan

Kingston and Callihan get in a shoulder block battle after a lock-up Kingston shoves Callihan away, so Callihan takes him down in a Koji Clutch. Kingston breaks using the ropes. Kingston takes Callihan over with a belly-to-belly suplex. Callihan throws Kingston face first into the middle turnbuckle. Kingston and Callihan trade strikes. Kingston lights up Callihan with chops to the chest in the corners of the ring. Callihan mauls Kingston in the corner. Callihan tries for a suplex, but when Kingston blocks he chokes Kingston on the middle rope and headbutts Kingston in the back of his head. Callihan headbutts Kingston in the shoulder, and Kingston comes back with a hard forearm. Kingson headbutts Callihan after Callihan gets in some shots. A suplex gets Kingston two. Kingston blocks a suplex but eats a big boot from Callihan. Callihan gets a reverse judo throw for two. Kingston drops Callihan with a backdrop driver and blasts him with the Backfist to the Future for the pin at 6:02. This was a nice introduction for both of these guys on HDNet. They both put on a very good, crisp brawl for the fans to sink their teeth into. Kingston getting the win hopefully means he’ll be utilized more in ROH now. **1/4
