Reported By: Jacob Gilbert
1. ACH def. Lio Rush.
2. Motor City Machine Guns def. The Addiction & Rappongi Vice in a non-title match when Chris Sabin pinned Christopher Daniels.
3. The Bullet Club def. Michael Elgin, Hiroshi Tanahashi, & Yoshi Tatsu when Kenny Omega pinned Tatsu.
1. ACH vs. Lio Rush.
Very athletic opener. Nigel McGuinness is on commentary with Kevin Kelly this week. You'd think Rush, the Top Prospect winner, could start building momentum with a win here. Nope. Not happening. Apparently, Rush's youth and inexperience work against him. Silas Young joined Kevin & Nigel on commentary and ragged on both men. It ended with ACH hitting the Midnight Star (450 splash) for the win.
Young attacked first Rush, then ACH, after the match, laying out ACH with Misery, so that's his next program.
Footage is shown of The Addiction using a shortcut to regain the tag titles. Next, they're out to brag, and ran down the Motor City Machine Guns, the Briscoes, et al. Well, the Machine Guns and Rappongi Vice answer the call, setting up a 3-way non-title match.
2. Non-title: The Addiction vs. Rappongi Vice vs. the Motor City Machine Guns.
The idea here was that both challenging teams were looking to shut the Addiction up, especially after Christopher Daniels had lied about being undefeated. As it happens, it'll be the Guns, after Daniels was pinned after Skull & Crossbones.
Winners: The Motor City Machine Guns.
3. Bullet Club (Kenny Omega & the Young Bucks) vs. Michael Elgin, Hiroshi Tanahashi, & Yoshi Tatsu.
Yoshi makes his ROH TV debut. Unfortunately, the Bullet Club is being pushed harder than ever. Y'think maybe the 20th anniversary of the nWo might have something to do with it? They've been heels in Japan all along, but the Bucks were being pushed as faces or tweeners here. Not anymore. Yoshi gets the spray in the face, leading to a One Winged Angel from Omega. How Tiger Hattori missed the spray, unless it has no odor, I'll never figure it out.
Winners: The Bullet Club.
