The Best Friends vs. The Bouncers vs. TK O’Ryan and Vinnie Marseglia
Best Friends won after Beretta hit the Kryptonite Krunch while Chuckie T hit the double stomp. Fun opener.
Kenny Kin pinned Eli Ishom after hitting a sit-down piledriver off his shoulders.
ROH TV Champion Jeff Cobb retained the title in an excellent match against Adam “Hangman” Page. This is a match you should see if you missed this pay-per-view.
Kelly Klein defeated Sumie Sakai to become the new WOH Champion. This was an elimination match that also featured Karen Q (she is headed to WWE so she was eliminated first) and Madison Rayne.
Zack Sabre Jr. defeated Jonathan Gresham. Great mat wrestling and things escalate into a stiff match with hard chops, slaps, and punches.
Matt Taven vs. Dalton Castle. Pretty good match. At one point, Taven did a dive over the top rope and his ribs landed first squarely on the guardrail. It was a scary spot but he continued the match. There was interference from TK O’Ryan but The Boys evened the odds but Vinny Marseglia appeared and took them out with a double unprettier DDT before dragging them under the ring. Late in the match, the referee told TK O’Ryan to leave the ringside area. Taven won the match after hitting a knee to the face and the Climax.
Christopher Daniels vs. Marty Scurll. This was a really good match. Scurll won after making Daniels tap to the cross face chicken wing. Daniels and Kazarian were offered contracts in November but they have not signed a new deal so this appeared to be Daniels’ last appearance with the company until… Bully Ray appeared and hit him with a low blow. Bully then called out Flip Gordon for their match.
Bully Ray vs. Flip Gordon in an “I Quit” match. Gordon walked to the ring through the crowd with combat boots, combat pants and the American flag in his hand. Flip Gordon’s girlfriend was sitting in the front row. She’s been sitting there all night with an uninterested look on her face. Bully got in Cary Silkin’s face and then shoved Bobby Cruise to the ground. Todd Sinclair was not standing for it but Bully shoved him to the floor outside of the ring. Christopher Daniels covered Silkin with his body and then ended up taking a cane shot to the back. Gordon was busted open. Bully hit a back body drop on Gordon. Gordon missed the table and he crashed hard on the floor at ringside. Bully grabbed Gordon’s girlfriend from the ringside area and then threatened to powerbomb her through a table. Silking appeared and nailed Bully with cane shot to the back of he head but Bully didn’t sell it. He went after Silkin, Gordon’s girlfriend hit Bully with a low blow, Gordon gave her a kiss and then he went in the ring with the American flag. He used came off the top and hit bully over the head with it as fans chanted “USA.” He wrapped the flag stick around Bully’s face in a crossface but Silas Young attacked Gordon. Silas hit “misery” on Gordon as the blood continued to pour. Cheeseburger ran out but Silas took him out. Silas poured gasoline on a table in the ring. Colt Cabana ran out with a chair and took out Silas. But eventually Silas hit a low blow and he took him out. Silas continued to pour gasoline on the table. The lights went out. The Sandman appeared in the ring with the kendo stick. Sandman and Bully faced off with kendo sticks in hand. Sandman poured a beer in his mouth and then spit it out. Gordon hit a superkick and a springboard stunner. Gordon hit Bully several times with the kendo stick. Bully finally quit. That was awesome. Gordon and Sandman chugged beers after the match.
Caprice Coleman is taking Colt Cabana’s spot on commentary.
Cody Rhodes vs. Jay Lethal for the ROH World Championship. Another very good match. Rhodes had help from Brandi Rhodes early on but late in the match she accidentally speared her husband and she took a Lethal Injection from Jay after Cody pushed her into him. Rhodes eventually tapped out to the figure four. Click here for more details on this match.
Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian vs. The Briscoes vs. The Young Bucks for the ROH World Tag Team Championships in a Ladder War. Colt Cabana returned to the broadcast booth for this match. Insane match with tons of crazy spots with ladders and people flying through tables. Click here for more details on this match.
This was an awesome show. Highly recommend that you watch the replay on FITE TV or the ROH app.
