1. Rappongi Vice vs. the All Night Express.
RPG Vice have yet to win a match on television, but they certainly came close this time. ANX worked as heels, as Kenny King couldn't understand why the Philly crowd turned on him & Rhett Titus. Apparently, beating the Young Bucks & the Briscoes might have something to do with it. About what you'd expect from this bunch. Nigel actually referred to Trent Barretta by his full name for a change. Nice. The end came when Rocky Romero and Barretta hit a double team spike Omori driver on Titus, but King, who'd made a legal tag per ref Paul Turner after pushing Titus out of the path of Romero, came back and schoolboyed Romero for the win.
Winners: The All Night Express.
The Kingdom are out for a promo. Matt Taven is on the DL with a leg injury sustained in the tag title loss at Final Battle. Mike Bennett, it's said, has broken ribs. Funny how he appears all healed a couple of weeks later after he and wife Maria signed with TNA. Adam Cole reamed out Taven & Bennett for losing the tag titles, while he beat Kyle O'Reilly, but before he could go further, O'Reilly attempted to break the security barrier set up by Cole. Who's really the coward in this case, Adam, hmmm? Bobby Fish has a mic, and calls on Nigel to make a match between the Kingdom and reDRagon. Nigel does----for next week, but out come the Young Bucks, offended by Fish's claim to having reinvented tag team wrestling. So make it a 3-way Philly Street Fight among the Kingdom, the Bucks, and reDRagon, for next week's main event. Somewhere, Joey Styles wishes he was working for ROH.
2. Non-title: War Machine vs. the House of Truth (w/Truth Martini).
After the Ken Phoenix experiment flopped three weeks ago, Joey Daddiego returns to team with Donovan Dijak. Unfortunately, Daddiego is about as effective with his blows to both Ray Rowe & Hanson as a fly on a windshield, if you get my drift. Dijak got a face pop for a spinning plancha, and the crowd starting chanting for him. Martini slid the Book of Truth in, but Dijak wanted no part of that, which foreshadowed what would happen post-match. Daddiego tagged himself in, but tagged right back out, forgetting that his offense doesn't work with the tag champs.
As it happened, Dijak ends up losing again, pinned after Fallout.
Winners: War Machine.
Post-match, Martini "fired" Dijak, claiming he was the weak link. Man, Martini is an idiot. He's keeping the real weak link (Daddiego), proving he doesn't know jack about talent. Daddiego attacked Dijak, then ate Feast Your Eyes to a big pop. Martini left, as Prince Nana, coincidentally, showed up and applauded. Looks like the Embassy is reforming.......
ACH has been hawking stuff for ROH's online shop. Pretty good. The Bucks and Steve Corino are shilling a Corino DVD. Colby happens along, gets a belated birthday present in the form of the DVD and a superkick. reDRagon cut a backstage promo as they're pushing the 3-way tag next week real hard.
Footage from Final Battle is shown of the Boys turning on Silas Young after he beat Dalton Castle, setting up Castle for a Bang-a-Rang.
3. Dalton Castle (w/the Boys) vs. Moose (w/Stokely Hathaway) vs. Matt Sydal vs. Jay Briscoe.
Four corner survival for the main event. Given the amount of time left in the show, it's 1 fall, but these kind of matches should be elimination matches. Sydal & Moose start. Everyone gets their shots in. Briscoe teased the Jay Driller early, but couldn't connect. Finish saw Sydal set up for the Shooting Star Press, but the boys got on the apron with their fans. Castle rolled out of the way, and hit Bang-a-Rang for the win.
Winner: Dalton Castle.
