Part 2 from Las Vegas.
1. Roderick Strong vs. Adam Page vs. Matt Sydal vs. Moose.
Four Corner Survival should be an elimination match. Will they never learn? One fall just doesn't settle everything. Lots of action, of course. Page hit a running shooting star press off the apron onto Sydal before the commercial. Strong hit a gutbuster on Moose for 2. Page was ready to finish Sydal when BJ Whitmer came out and interfered. That led to Sydal hitting the shooting star off the top, then Strong took over with End of Heartache, followed by a Baisuke knee strike.
Winner: Roderick Strong.
Adam Cole is out for an interview. Blah, blah, blah. Heard it all before. Brought up the Kingdom, as if he's rebuilding it without Mike & Maria Bennett (TNA). Matt Taven returns, still recovering from surgery for a torn ACL & meniscus suffered in December. He turned on Cole, saying Cole will not be part of the new Kingdom. Hmmmmm. Seems the Bennetts plan to build a new Kingdom in TNA as well.........
2. Cheeseburger vs. Foxx Vinyer.
For those who don't know, Foxx is from my hometown of Troy, NY, but often is billed as hailing from across the bridge in Watervliet. Still another upstate NY talent debuting in ROH (Thank you, Bobby Fish!). This, however, was a showcase for Cheeseburger, only to be spoiled by the All Night Express, who attacked Vinyer for no reason. No winner was announced, though the announcers speculated Vinyer might've been awarded the bout via DQ. We'll call it a No Contest instead. ANX lured 'Burger into a false sense of security with a promo, then left him lying before War Machine & the Briscoes made the save, and then those two teams were ready to throw down over the tag titles.
3. ROH title: Jay Lethal (w/Truth Martini & Taeler Hendrix) vs. Hirooki Goto.
Lethal is losing credibility as champion with each TV appearance, and it's all because of Martini. The scum should've been ejected by Todd Sinclair before the match, and taken Hendrix with him. In my eyes, Sinclair blew it. Of course, Lethal can't win without help anymore. Goto tried, but there wasn't enough room to build sympathy for him. Hendrix paid for her sins when Goto stomped on her hand, and Goto intercepted a book shot. Sinclair took the book, but a superkick and a Lethal Injection retained the title for the champ.
Winner: Jay Lethal.
I'm sorry, but the correct call is Goto via DQ. Sinclair should've called for the bell once he caught Hendrix grabbing Goto. Afterward, Donovan Dijak & Prince Nana came out, and it seems Dijak is next for Lethal. As it should be.
