1. Cheeseburger & Will Ferrara vs. the Tempura Boys.
Basic tag match between two teams looking for traction. Fairly even until the end, when the Tempuras isolated Cheeseburger and finished him with a package piledriver.
Winners: The Tempura Boys.
Post-match, Prince Nana led Donovan Dijak down to the ring, ranting as he went, as Dijak fell short of winning the TV title at a recent event. Cheeseburger and Ferrara ate chokeslam-backbreakers. The Tempuras had left. Joey Daddiego, who had returned and was doing commentary with Kevin Kelly and Nigel McGuinness on the previous match, left the desk to confront Dijak, and so the former members of the House of Truth meet in our next match.
2. Donovan Dijak vs. Joey Daddiego.
Because a lot of the discord between Dijak and Nana hasn't been played out on TV, fans have no clue what the story is there. Nana interfered, crotching Daddiego on the top turnbuckle, setting up Dijak for Feast Your Eyes and a very cheap win.
Winner: Donovan Dijak.
Bobby Cruise didn't make an announcement. Instead, Nana took the mic and told Dijak, "That is how you win a match!", then left, with Dijak feeling conflicted.
3. BJ Whitmer & Damian Martinez (w/Kevin Sullivan) vs. War Machine.
More incoherent babbling from Sullivan after this all went down. They brawled on the floor, then tried to have the match in the ring, but Ray Rowe and Whitmer both pushed the ref away. Whitmer would later kick the referee down. Sullivan addressed Hanson as Todd (his real name, I think), and referenced Steve Corino. Of course, that brought Corino from the back, as Sullivan and his followers slunk away.
Winners: None. No Contest.
[Corino wrestled his last match for ROH at the tapings while this show was on the air. He is in fact leaving, presumably for WWE/NXT.]
4. The Briscoes, Silas Young, & Jay Lethal vs. Lio Rush, Jay White, & the Motor City Machine Guns.
Very odd to see Young as the lone heel in this match. As it is, he didn't do much of anything on camera. The Rebellion, formerly known as the Cabinet (Caprice Coleman, Kenny King, & Rhett Titus), were on the ramp to get Lethal's attention, but then left. Everyone got their spots in, although Young didn't come close to trying Misery. In a match like this, predictably, Mark Briscoe ended up the jobber, as White finished him with the Kiwi Crusher.
Winners: Lio Rush, Jay White, and the Motor City Machine Guns.
Next week: Women of Honor.
