Beer City Bruiser & Silas Young vs Bobby Fish & Jay Lethal
(referee: Paul Turner)
Result: Silas Young pins Jay Lethal after Misery
Time: 7:22 (1 break)
Good match. The entire segment prior to the commercial break was a comedy bit with Fish and Lethal getting Bruiser to run the ropes and tire himself out. That was fun, then the rest of the match had some good action. Bruiser and Young worked well as a team, but Fish and Lethal never got on the same page. They were either just doing their own thing, or they were actively getting in each other’s way. The finish was simple and unsurprising, but it was well done.
Christopher Daniels celebrates the 300th episode of ROH TV by celebrating his own victories.
From two weeks ago, Mark Briscoe is furious about Dalton Castle and The Boys. Bully Ray and Mark Briscoe attempt to calm him down.
The Boys come out for the next match, but The Kingdom attacks them before they can get to the ring. Matt Taven is about to powerbomb one of The Boys on the floor when Dalton Castle comes out to interrupt the action. As The Kingdom is distracted, The Boys enter the ring to start the match.
The Boys w/ Dalton Castle vs Matt Taven & Vinny Marseglia w/ TK O’Ryan
(referee: Mike Posey)
Result: Vinny Marseglia pins one of The Boys after Redrum
This was kind of a quick squash. The Boys nearly got a victory immediately thanks to Dalton Castle’s distraction, but after that they didn’t really get any offense.
Matt Taven says The Kingdom came to make a statement. They leave the ring when Jay Briscoe shows up. Jay goes towards The Boys, but Dalton Castle gets in the way. Mark Briscoe and Bully Ray talk to Jay and calm things down.
A package promo for Punishment Martinez. He’s coming up next.
Punishment Martinez vs Joey “Diesel” Daddiego
(referee: Paul Turner)
Result: Punishment Martinez wins via pinfall after a sitout chokeslam
Pretty much a squash. And not a terribly entertaining one.
Cheeseburger and Will Ferrara come out to check on Daddiego, but Martinez attacks the both. Jay White comes out to save Cheeseburger. White and Martinez brawl until Martinez is forced out of the ring.
Mark Briscoe probably can’t remember all the episodes of ROH TV he’s been on. Mark Briscoe is looking forward to episode 1 million.
Gedo & Hirooki Goto & Will Ospreay vs Hiroshi Tanahashi & Frankie Kazarian & Christopher Daniels (ROH World Champ)
(referee: Todd Sinclair; guest commentary: Cody, Kevin Kelly [replacing Ian Riccaboni])
Result: Christopher Daniels pins Gedo after a High Fly Flow from Tanahashi and a BME from Daniels
Time: 8:25 (2 breaks)
Good match. Ospreay might have been the star of this one. He definitely made the biggest impression with his flying. The Addiction looked good as a team though, especially late in the match. This was a fun exhibition that didn’t really mean much, but was very entertaining nonetheless.
After the match, Daniels spits on Cody at ringside. Cody gets up from the table, and Hangman Page attacks The Addiction from behind. Cody runs into the ring and hits Daniels with Angel’s Wings.
Marty Scurll wants his TV Title back from KUSHIDA at Best in the World.
Jay Lethal can’t wait to get his hands on Silas Young.
Dalton Castle and The Boys are outraged.
Hangman Page is going to beat Kazarian like a rented mule.
The Kingdom returns home at Best in the World.
The Young Bucks will end “Bore Machine’s” hot streak.
Christopher Daniels will not let Cody take the ROH World Title.
I liked the show. I think they did a decent job of building interest for the upcoming PPV. Only two of the four matches were worth watching, but at least the other two were short.
Match of the Night
Will Ospreay & Hirooki Goto & Gedo vs Hiroshi Tanahashi & The Addiction
The opening tag match was fun, but it was a lot more simple than the main event.
