– Ian Riccaboni opened the show and announced that ROH World Tag Team Champions Jay and Mark Briscoe were unfortunately unable to attend, so the main event is going to have to be changed around.
(1) Matt Taven & Vinny Marseglia def. The Boys. The Kingdom got the win when Taven pinned Brandon off a killer frog splash.
– The Kingdom continued to put the boots to The Boys after the match, but surprisingly nobody made the save. Taven trashed The Briscoes for not being able to appear, and Dalton Castle for not being health enough to compete, calling himself the “real” ROH World Champion.
(2) Flip Gordon def. Rhett Titus. Lots of “ALL IN” chants for the high-flyer, who got the win with his crazy stunner in a little less than ten minutes.
(3) Sumie Sakai & Tenille Dashwood def. Kelly Klein & Thunder Rosa. If you watched Lucha Underground’s season premiere this Wednesday, Thunder Rosa was out there with members of the Reptile Clan as Kobra Moon. She almost got the win after a big power bomb on the champion, but Tenille cleaned house and brawled with Klein to the floor. Sakai hit her finisher and the babyfaces picked up the win.
(4) Jay Lethal def. TK O’Ryan. The Kingdom member got nuclear heat from the crowd with lots of “you can’t wrestle” chants and comparisons to Big Cass. Lethal got the win after blocking a top rope elbow drop and hitting the Lethal Injection.
(5) Atlantis, Stucka Jr. & Guerrero Maya Jr. def. SoCal Uncensored. They’re really playing up the angle where ROH has said they won’t be re-signing Christopher Daniels and Kazarian, so they’re just saying and doing whatever they want. Great work from the CMLL guys.
(6) Silas Young def. Curt Stallion. Surprise match that wasn’t announced before hand, and it was awesome seeing my buddy Curt out there tearing it up with the ROH World TV Champion. Stallion was trained by Michael Elgin and works primarily in the midwest. He was in the ROH Top Prospects tournament and since then has been working a ton of dates for AAW in Chicago.
(7) Bully Ray, Shane Taylor & Punishment Martinez def. Hurricane Helms, Cheeseburger & Delirious. After about ten minutes Punishment pinned Delirious with a chokeslam.
(8) Cody Rhodes def. Jonathan Gresham. Longest match of the night so far. Gresham looked good here, getting the most out of a big opportunity, and actually countered a bunch of finisher attempts late into the match. Cody countered a suplex into the Cross Rhodes to pick up the win.
(9) Killer Elite Squad & The Kingdom def. The Young Bucks, Hangman Page & Marty Scurll. This turned into a ridiculous brawl, which is pretty much the chaos that the Bucks live comfortably in. In a funny spot, Archer did his usual spot where he sprays water all over everybody, but Scurll blocked it with his umbrella. Hangman hit the Rite of Passage on Vinny Marseglia for the win.
