-Scarlett Bordeaux was the ring announcer for the night.
Dark match-Danny Adams d. Paco Gonzalez with a Falcon Arrow.
-”All Ego” Ethan Gabriel Owens(aka Ethan Page) d. Zizou Middoux with a Rock Bottom.
-Cedric Alexander d. Tadarius Thomas(w/ Jimmy Jacobs) after the Lumbar Check(belly-to-back suplex into a double-knee backbreaker). B.J. Whitmer ran into the ring but Alexander avoided the sneak attack.
-Caprice Coleman d. B.J. Whitmer(w/ Jimmy Jacobs & Tadarius Thomas) by countering an exploder suplex attempt into a victory roll. The Decade members attacked Coleman after the match but Alexander hit the ring with a chair to run them off.
-The Romantic Touch(?) d. T.V. Champion Jay Lethal(w/ Truth Martini & Seleziya Sparx) in a non-title match. Lethal pulled the mask off his opponent late in the match…but it was actually MATT TAVEN under the hood. Taven hit a flurry of offense, ending with the Climax(trapped-arm headlock driver) for the Proving Ground win.
-”Unbreakable” Michael Elgin fought Michael Bennett(w/ Maria Kanellis) to a no-contest in an impromptu no-DQ match. It started out as a regular bout, but Elgin demanded that it be made a no-DQ affair when Bennett tried to bring a chair into the match. Elgin set up a piece of guardrail across two chairs and set up to spiral-bomb Bennett onto the railing, but Heavyweight Champion Adam Cole ran in to hit Elgin with his title belt. Bennett held up Elgin for Cole to BELT again, then they zip-tied him to the ropes and cut his hair. Cole looked to finish the job with a chair, but MsChif(Elgin’s wife) ran in to stand between them. Bennett held back MsChif and Cole threatened to hit MsChif with the chair, but instead took her down into a figure-four leglock. Elgin was finally freed from the zip-ties after Cole, Bennett, and Maria had left…and he took out his frustration on the ringside security crew.
-”The Last Real Man” Silas Young d. A.C.H. with the Stock Lock(full nelson out of the Crippler Crossface position).
ROH World Title
-Adam Cole d. Tommaso Ciampa to retain. At one point, Cole pulled the referee in the way of Ciampa’s running knee in the corner, then delivered a low blow with the official down. A second referee took over the bout. Ciampa came back to get Cole in the Sicilian Stretch(Rings Of Saturn), but Bennett and Maria ran out and Bennett pulled the second ref out of the ring. The original referee recovered and Tommaso hit the Project Ciampa(powerbomb onto the knees), but Cole reversed the pin attempt into a crucifix on the mat for the flash pin(with the referee missing Ciampa’s feet being in the ropes).
ROH Tag Titles
-reDRagon(Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish) d. The Briscoe Brothers(Jay & Mark) to retain the Tag Team Titles. The Briscoes set up for the Doomsday Device on O’Reilly, but Fish threw one of the title belts into the ring and then hit Jay with a low blow as the ref was getting the belt out of the ring. O’Reilly & Fish double-teamed Mark, ending with Chasing The Dragon(brainbuster/head kick combo) to give O’Reilly the winning pinfall.
