Date: January 17, 2016
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Commentary: Kevin Kelly & Mr. Wrestling 3 (Steve Corino)
Reported By: Jacob Gilbert
1. The Addiction def. ACH & Alex Shelley when Frankie Kazarian pinned ACH.
2. Mark Briscoe def. Adam Page.
3. The Young Bucks def. reDRagon & The Kingdom, when Matt & Nick Jackson pinned Michael Bennett.
1. The Addiction (w/Chris Sabin) vs. ACH & Alex Shelley.
Shelley essentially is 1) subbing for Matt Sydal and 2) continuing a developing issue with ex-partner Sabin, who'd play a big role in the match. Mr. Wrestling III joins Kevin Kelly on commentary this week, alternating with Nigel McGuinness. Pretty even match, aside from Sabin sticking his nose in it, and he hopped onto the apron just before ACH could land the Midnight Star. Ref Paul Turner, in my opinion, should've thrown Sabin out right then and there, but they went right to the finish, as Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian hit Celebrity Rehab on ACH.
Winners: The Addiction.
The correct call is to stop the match and either eject Sabin or disqualify Daniels & Kazarian for interference. Post-match, the Addiction ganged up on Shelley, and Daniels grabbed the bell hammer. Turner tried to stop him, and got dropped. Nigel came out, and promptly suspended Daniels, threatening to make a year-long ban. All that's going to do is bring Curry Man into the mix, as Daniels had used his masked alter-ego in TNA some years back when, as Daniels, he was forced to the sidelines (Feast or Fired). Nigel should've just gone one step further and overturned the decision.
2. Adam Page (w/Colby Corino & B. J. Whitmer) vs. Mark Briscoe.
Page is on a losing streak, and it's all Whitmer's fault. Another even match, almost on a par with Page's match with Jay Briscoe a while back. However, Whitmer decides to confront MWIII, and that gets Page's attention. Big mistake. Running dropkick in the corner. Fisherman buster. Froggy-bow. Good night.
Winner: Mark Briscoe.
Post-match, after the break, the Decade is still in the ring, and Whitmer is getting major heat. MWIII confronts him in the ring, and denies being Steve Corino (but we all know better). Seems that program will continue.......
Silas Young comes out and cuts a promo on the Boys for betraying him at Final Battle. Meh.
3. The Kingdom (Adam Cole & Michael Bennett w/Maria Kanellis-Bennett & Matt Taven) vs. reDRagon vs. the Young Bucks.
Philadelphia streetfight closes the show, and continues the ECW tribute theme from last week. Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly were jumped by the Bucks on the stage, and then the Jackson brothers ran down to engage the Kingdom. Ring announcer Bobby Cruise ate a superkick and had to be taken to the back. Before the final break, Kevin Kelly ended up getting KO'd as well, forcing MW3 to go it virtually alone, save for a token comment from Cary Silkin, who also took over as ring announcer. It was the Bennetts' last night, so it should've been obvious who was jobbing. O'Reilly & Cole brawled to the back to continue their program. Fish was sent to the floor through some chairs, leading to Nick Jackson hitting a frogsplash on the floor. Maria got in and hit a double low blow, but paid for it with a Meltzer Driver (Swanton into a tombstone). AJ Styles ran in before the Meltzer Driver to help the Bucks (taped prior to Styles leaving New Japan). Mike Bennett ate an IndyTaker (springboard tombstone), then the Styles Clash, as the Jacksons piled on top.
Winners: The Young Bucks.
