Prince Nana joins Kevin Kelly at the desk this week.
1. Caprice Coleman vs. Will Ferrara.
Rematch from last month. Coleman is full heel here, but the way Nana is talking, the advice he's dispensed to both men may be the start of reforming the Embassy with these two. It ends when both men decide to grab chairs, prompting ref Paul Turner to call for the bell.
Winner: None. No Contest.
2. Ken Phoenix & Donovan Dijak (w/Truth Martini) vs. the All Night Express.
Phoenix is getting an audition for the House of Truth, per Martini, who, in a skit minutes earlier, was wearing a Santa Claus beard and hat hyping the 10-man "surprise" main event. Joey Diddidaggio is in absentia. It was pretty obvious who was jobbing here. Phoenix thought he could take the former champs, and refused a tag from Dijak at a critical moment. As it ends up, Rhett Titus pinned Phoenix after a combination backbreaker and corkscrew springboard splash.
Winners: The All Night Express.
Post-match, Dijak laid out Phoenix with Feast Your Eyes (Burning Hammer dropped into a GTS). Nana left the desk, and gave Dijak an envelope. Hmmmmmmmmm.
Steve Corino returns for a brief promo. Not much to talk about, other than Corino being coy about future plans for one BJ Whitmer. No Inside ROH this week.
3. Roderick Strong, Moose, Mark Briscoe, Matt Jackson, & Cedric Alexander vs. Jay Lethal, Cheeseburger, Adam Page, Jay Briscoe, & Cliff Compton.
All the managers and Nick Jackson were sent to the back during the break. Compton's 1st ROH TV match in over a year and a half, and it looks like he's packed on a few pounds since the last we saw him. The HOT was not digging the fact that Cheeseburger, the lightest guy in the company, was on Team Lethal. With Martini gone, Lethal toned down the arrogance a tad, and even saved Cheeseburger after he'd been pummeled with Strong slamming his own partners onto Cheeseburger, one at a time. 'Burger came back with a rally of his own, hitting palm strikes on all 5 opponents. Somehow, Page wound up in the ring and ate a Sick Kick and a knee strike from Strong, setting up Mark Briscoe and Froggy-Bow.
Winners: Roderick Strong, Moose, Mark Briscoe, Matt Jackson, & Cedric Alexander.
Next week: Best of 2015.
