Ring of Honor TV, Taped in Toronto, Ontario at Ted Reeve Arena on May 16:
Show opens with the tag champs, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian, talking in front of the screen. They talk about giving rEDragon their rematch tonight. Daniels says that Fish and O’Reilly saw what they did to win the titles. “What do you think we’ll do to keep these championships?”
Opening video airs and Kevin Kelly and Steve Corino check in. They hype the tag title match, then Kelly notes that Fish has been attacked in the parking lot.
The Addiction heads out for a promo. Daniels says they have breaking news. “In a shocking turn of events, Bobby Fish has been ruled medically unable to compete tonight.” Kelly chimes in and says that Fish can’t go because of what Daniels and Kaz did to him.
Daniels says the contract only gives Fish and O’Reilly a shot on this night only. He says they can go to the back of the line if they don’t take the match, and calls out rEDragon to take the rematch, or forfeit. O’Reilly comes out, takes his shirt off and charges the ring.
They had to call the audible to explain Bobby Fish’s absence, as he could not cross the border into Canada for this show and the other ROH/NJPW shows that took place in Toronto. This was fine.
Match #1 – Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian (a.k.a The Addiction) vs. Kyle O’Reilly of rEDragon; ROH Tag Team Championship in a handicap match:
