1. reDRagon def. Chaos when Kyle O'Reilly pinned Gedo.
2. Non-title: Adam Cole def. Kushida.
3. The Machine Guns def. the Addiction when Chris Sabin pinned Chris Daniels.
We open with footage from last week's show, and the return of Donovan Dijak. Cut to a promo from Jay Lethal, who says Truth Martini has a broken neck from the mafia kick from Dijak. Lethal, speaking in his normal voice for a change, says Dijak doesn't deserve a title shot, but he's coming to avenge Martini.
1. reDRagon vs. Chaos (Gedo & Kazuchika Okada).
Chaos is the name of the faction fronted by Okada in New Japan. Chaos refused the Code of Honor, which for Okada is uncharacteristic, but they had to get him over as a heel for this match. Kevin Kelly & Mr. Wrestling 3 brought up the fact that Kyle O'Reilly has had some ear issues, and barely have those words been spoken than Gedo targets the ear to get heat. Unfortunately, this would not be a good night for New Japan. O'Reilly would recover, and reDRagon disposed of Gedo with Chasing The Dragon.
The Briscoes cut a promo on War Machine, so they'll meet for the tag titles imminently.
2. Non-title: Kushida vs. Adam Cole.
Kushida is the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight champion. Cole fits into the weight class, but of course is aiming higher, as he wants another crack at Lethal. Best match on the show, in this writer's opinion. Cole blocked a handspring elbow with a superkick to the back of the head, and that set up the Cole-ateral.
Winner: Adam Cole.
Dalton Castle promo for next week's fight without honor vs. Silas Young.
3. The Addiction vs. The (Motor City) Machine Guns.
I guess TNA owns the trademark on "Motor City Machine Guns", so Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin's team name has been shortened in ROH. Chris Daniels & Frankie Kazarian ambushed the Guns right from the go, and got equal heat on Sabin & Shelley. However, their arrogance proved to be their undoing. They went for Celebrity Rehab, but that was blocked. Kazarian was taken out of play, leaving Daniels all alone to eat the Skull & Crossbones finisher that won the Guns some tag gold in TNA.
Winners: The Machine Guns.
Post-match, the Addiction launched a sore loser attack, leading to Kushida returning with Matt Sydal to make a save. Then, the Young Bucks showed up. It ended with 4 teams brawling, but after the replay, Kushida, Sydal, and the Guns stood tall to end the show.
Castle vs. Young-Fight Without Honor.
War Machine vs. Rappongi Vice for the tag titles.
Kenny Omega vs. ACH.
