ROH TV #502 Full Card
Beer City Bruiser and Ken Dixon vs. The OGK (Matt Taven and Mike Bennett)
The Beer City Bruiser has shown a less fun-loving attitude over the last couple of months. During a tag match at ROH TV #489, Beer City Bruiser attacked the injured leg of Mike Bennett. After the match, he offered Matt Taven and Bennett a beer before turning on them and smashing a beer over the head of Taven. Bennett looked to get revenge on Bruiser at ROH TV #497, but the match ended in a no contest. During ROH Week by Week last week, Bruiser defeated Joe Keys. After the match, he looked to further damage Keys when three ROH dojo students, including Ken Dixon, came to the ring to stop him. In a shocking turn of events, Dixon turned on his fellow dojo mates, aligning with Bruiser. The newly formed tag team will now take on The OGK on ROH TV #502.
Bandido vs. Flamita
Former MexiSquad teammates Bandido and Flamita will go head to head on this week’s ROH TV. The two have been at odds since the 19th Anniversary pay-per-view. The team of Rey Horus, Bandido, and Flamita unsuccessfully challenged for the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship against Shane Taylor Promotions. Tempers flared between Bandido and Flamita, and Horus suggested they settle their differences in the ring later in the night. Bandido came out of that match victorious, but things did not seem great with MexiSquad. Flamita and Bandido teamed up again on ROH TV #499 to take on Jonathan Gresham and Jay Lethal, which ended with Flamita walking out on Bandido, officially ending MexiSquad. Bandido and Flamita will now square off on ROH TV #502.

ROH World Television Championship Match: Tracy Williams (c) vs. Tony Deppen
Tracy Williams will make his first defense of the ROH World Television Championship against Tony Deppen. The latter is ranked number two in the ROH World Television Title rankings. He defeated Kenny King on ROH TV #495 to cement his shot at the title. Additionally, Deppen joined Brody King, Homicide, and Chris Dickinson as part of the new VLNCE UNLTD stable at the 19th Anniversary pay-per-view. The new group laid out both La Facción Ingobernable and The Foundation at the end of the show.
LFI looked to get their revenge on VLNCE UNLTD during last week’s episode of ROH TV in their six-man tag match. The match was thrown out due to an all-out brawl breaking out. Tracy Williams and the rest of The Foundation came out to exact a bit of revenge themselves, going against the code of honor they stand for. Now Deppen and Williams will represent their respective stable’s in a title match on ROH TV #502.
