1. Jay White vs. Kamaitachi (w/Christopher Daniels).
ROH debuts for both, I think. White hails from Auckland, New Zealand, which for old schoolers means Tony Garea country. Kamaitachi had a lot to do with the Addiction getting a win at Best in the World over the Motor City Machine Guns, so Daniels and Frankie Kazarian have been a corrupting influence. What a shock. Daniels got involved early, but didn't do a lot the rest of the match. It ended when White hit the Kiwi Krusher, which looks like Chris Sabin's Cradle Shock a little, except that, as we would see, White can set up from more than one position.
Winner: Jay White.
So of course Kazarian comes down after and they do a 3-on-1 sore loser assault on White. Enter the Machine Guns. Sabin cuts a promo invoking the Addiction's TNA name (Bad Influence). Nigel McGuinness leaves the desk and makes a six man tag.......
2. The Addiction & Kamaitachi vs. Jay White and the Motor City Machine Guns.
Joined in progress coming out of the break with Sabin as face in peril. Standard stuff here, but with the same result as the last match, as White hit the Kiwi Krusher on Daniels to end it.
Winners: Jay White & the Motor City Machine Guns.
3. Keith Lee & Shane Taylor vs. Victor Andrews & James Anthony.
Total squash to get the newbies over. Their interference helped the Addiction steal one from War Machine in Columbus. Taylor pinned Andrews after a splash off the middle rope, set up by a Lee seated powerbomb.
Winners: Keith Lee & Shane Taylor.
Dueling promos between Jay Lethal & Kyle O'Reilly to set up the title match next week, which will take up the full hour. Also, more crap from Adam Cole and the Young Bucks. Please go away.
BJ Whitmer & Kevin Sullivan. Who'd have thought this alliance actually existed? Well, Steve Corino invoked Sullivan's name in a promo prior to Best in the World, so we should've seen this coming. Whitmer doesn't need a manager or a "spiritual father", but his issue with Corino is far from over.
4. Roderick Strong vs. Dalton Castle (w/the Boys).
Strong's final appearance with ROH, as noted with a fan sign that reads, "Thank you, Roddy". Strong ran around ringside slapping hands coming in before going into the match. Looked for all the world as though Strong might just go out a winner, but Castle kicked out of the Sick Kick. Jumping knee strike countered into Bang-a-Rang and Strong does the honors for Castle.
Winner: Dalton Castle.
