Part 2 from Las Vegas:
1. Bullet Club (Adam Cole, Adam Page, and Yujiro Takahashi) vs. Jay Lethal, Evil, & Tatsuyo Naito (for now).
At the start of the year, Lethal had forged an alliance with Los Ingobernales. Suffice to say, after some misunderstandings at War of the Worlds in May, it was a matter of time before that alliance collapsed, and at the most inopportune time. Lethal now has new music and a new entrance video, with the House of Truth disbanded once and for all. There were issues between Lethal & Naito from the go, and just when Lethal needed to tag out, Naito & Evil abandoned him.
Faced with a 3-on-1 handicap, Lethal looked finished, especially with Cole, the current champion, taunting him. Unfortunately for Cole, his immediate future came before him as first Michael Elgin, who ended Cole's first run as champ two years ago, and then, Kyle O'Reilly, were admitted into the match by Nigel McGuinness. It broke down from there, and Lethal won the match with a Lethal Injection out of nowhere on Takahashi.
Winners: Jay Lethal, Michael Elgin, & Kyle O'Reilly.
O'Reilly's partner, TV champ Bobby Fish, cut a promo on his opponent du jour, Katsuyori Shibata. We also heard more gaga from the Addiction. Lethal lingered around during the break, then cut a promo, setting up a match with Naito for All-Star Extravaganza at the end of the month.
2. ROH TV title: Bobby Fish vs. Katsuyori Shibata.
The better of the two matches on the card. Back & forth they went with a figure four leglock early on. At the end, Shibata tried a gogoplata, but Fish was able to counter by standing and pushing his weight forward, putting Shibata down for the final three.
Winner: Bobby Fish.
Next week: Steve Corino returns to the broadcast table, likely to continue his program with B. J. Whitmer and Kevin Sullivan.
