Detailed Results
It's all about tag teams in the final installment from Nashville. A 7-team gauntlet to determine the #1 contenders to the tag titles.

1. reDRagon vs. Caprice Coleman & Will Ferrara.

Good opener. reDRagon played subtle heel, particularly Kyle O'Reilly, but otherwise this was fairly even. Ferrara was left all alone after Coleman had been neutralized on the floor, and Bobby Fish submitted him with a knee-bar.

Winners: reDRagon.

2. reDRagon vs. Joey Daddiego & Chris LaRusso (w/Truth Martini).

LaRusso, Truth Martini explains, is getting an audition. LaRusso is a lawyer in his spare time, and gives Martini a business card. It's probably been shredded by now. A leg lariat misfire hits Daddiego, and when LaRusso wants out, Daddiego & Martini walk out. O'Reilly clamps on a guillotine choke, and LaRusso taps.

Winners: reDRagon.

3. reDRagon vs. the Young Bucks.

Transition time. Fish & O'Reilly were all but spent, but avoided superkicks at all costs until the very end. O'Reilly was isolated. Double superkick sets up More Bang For Your Buck, and the Jacksons move on.

Winners: The Young Bucks.

4. Young Bucks vs. Tough Guy, Inc..

Squashola. Bob Evans & Tim Hughes stalled as much as possible. Hughes was in the entire way. Evans never tagged in, and when he tried to get involved, ate a double superkick, and was not heard from again. Buckle bomb/enziguri combo ends Hughes' night.

Winners: The Young Bucks.

5. Young Bucks vs. The Addiction.

Way too short to suit, and you wonder why Tough Guy, Inc., which hasn't won a match yet, was even in this thing. Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian wasted the opportunity presented to them, and it cost them. Kazarian gets knocked out with a superkick on the floor, and Matt Jackson pins Daniels with a float-over jackknife.

Winners: The Young Bucks.

6. Young Bucks vs. Rappongi Vice.

Kevin Kelly & Mr. Wrestling 3 put over the Rocky Romero-penned theme song as being addictive with an infectious beat. I believe it. Romero isn't just underrated as a wrestler, with multiple tag title runs in ROH with various partners, most recently with Alex Kozlov, but as a songwriter, too. Daniels & Kazarian initiated a sore loser attack on the Bucks, but Romero & Trent Barreta made the save, and the officials had to clear the Addiction out to get this final round underway.

The fact that the All Night Express and the Briscoes were not in this gauntlet, replaced by the likes of Coleman/Ferrara & Tough Guy, Inc., might've been to ensure they got all six matches into the time allotted. As it was, the tournament ended a few minutes early. Getting ahead of myself here. A very entertaining main event, evenly paced, just like the opener. Superkicks galore, but Rappongi Vice, like the Bucks vs. reDRagon earlier, took advantage of the fact that the Bucks were spent. Barreta pinned Matt after Strong Zero (springboard knee strike into a Omori Driver).

Winners: Rappongi Vice.

The show ended with the closing moments of a match from last year between the Briscoes and Kazuchika Okada & Shinsuke Nakamura, who has since left for WWE, ending with Okada pinning Mark after the Rainmaker. War of the Worlds 2016 begins next week.
