  • Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. Kenny King & Rhett Titus

THE BRISCOES ARE BACK! Enough of the douchery from King Titus, the Briscoes unload and clean house. Titus pearl harbors Jay, but that gets quickly turned around. In comes Mark Briscoe with a back suplex for two. We see a double-team Curb Stomp. Tag to King, the Briscoes set up a sequence Jay whips King into a back elbow and then a Russian Legsweep is followed up with a Flying Senton from Mark! That gets two. Titus comes in and shows off his biceps. The Briscoes aren’t impressed and double-team hiptoss him across the ring. Later on, Mark tries a sunset flip and Titus gets a tag from the apron to prevent any kind of pinfall. Titus drills Mark off a catapult and then slams his back down across King’s knees! Atomic drop – clothesline combo gets two on Mark. He tries his hardest to reach Jay for the tag by flipping out of a back suplex, but Titus cuts him off. King hits a springboard legdrop for two. He runs into a boot in the corner and gets taken over with a release Northern Lights. He ALMOST makes the tag to his brother, but Titus yanks Jay off the apron at the last second. Mark elbows out of a chinlock and catches King with a cutter. Can he make the tag? YES HE CAN. Jay goes CLOTHESLINE CRAZY all over Kenny King. He blocks the DVD from Jay, but runs into a spinebuster. The match breaks down as the Briscoes level King with a simultaneous dropkick/big boot in the corner. That gets two. Tag to Titus, King helps him counter a tornado DDT so he can bring Jay down with a Flying X-Factor for 1-2-NO! Powerbomb-Springboard Blockbuster combo is countered with a rana. King nails Jay anyway with a handstand kick. That sets up the fireman’s carry into a Uranage for 1-2-NO! King tries a floatover in the corner and Jay drops him with an STO on the buckle. Tag to Mark, he hits a Fisherman’s Buster for 1-2-NO! Titus blocks the Double Three Point Stance one time, but not twice. Out he goes. That leaves King all alone for the double superkick followed by the DOOMSDAY DEVICE for the 1-2-3. (12:03) Wonder if Mark will ever be able to do the springboard again? Solid, but kind of heatless which killed the excitement. **½

Afterwards, the ROH tag champs American Wolves come out to confront the Briscoes. Cherish these simple victories because sooner or later, they’re going to cripple them again. Kevin Steen and El Generico interrupt Edwards during his catchphrase! Together, the Briscoes and Steenerico beat up on the Wolves and steal their belts. Well, Mark grabs the belt away from Generico, causing the teams to go nose-to-nose. TENSION~!

In the back, Kyle Durden worships the ground Nigel McGuinness spits on. He puts over the main event while putting them down at the same time. Nevertheless, both of these wankers need to keep their eyes on the ball.

Recap video is shown of when Eddie Kingston beat up Chris Hero all around the Arena six weeks ago.

  • Eddie Kingston vs. Sal Rinauro

This was supposed to be the night Eddie Kingston gets his hands on Chris Hero, but Hero’s manager Shane Hagadorn sends out Sal Rinauro who needs to get revenge on Kingston since Rinauro was the one who got sucker punched a whole lot trying to stop that Hero fight. Rinauro backs into Kingston and does the Bugs Bunny bit where he feels the guy behind him and drops to his knees to pray. SPINNING BACK FIST. Good night, Sal. (0:10) All the effort they’re putting into Chris Hero ducking Kingston – the blowoff better be good.

  • Nigel McGuinness vs. Aaron Scott

Nigel spends the whole match stretching this guy out and making him squeal like he’s Stu Hart or something. Scott ducks the JAWBREAKER LARIAT (since Nigel doesn’t do that anymore), but can’t avoid a DDT for the 1-2-3. (4:00) Really? A DDT? Post-match, Nigel slaps on the LONDON DUNGEON on Aaron Scott. Just for fun. *½

  • Tyler Black vs. Jerry Lynn

In recent weeks, Tyler Black has defeated both Danielson and McGuinness with God’s Last Gift. Can he beat Geritol Lynn too on his “comeback” match since his title loss? We’re about to find out. Lots of feeling out stuff to start. Around five minutes into all that, Black delivers the stomp to the face and goes for a second one, but Lynn moves out of the way. Black catches Lynn with an enziguri from the apron. Lynn ducks the Springboard Clothesline, but they both collide off a crossbody. Cue Nigel McGuinness to take Tyler’s eye off the ball. Meanwhile, Black shoves off a Tornado DDT, but a quebrada hits knees. Black backdrops out of a CRADLE PILEDRIVER attempt and goes for another quebrada. Lynn moves, but Black lands on his feet and hits the standing SSP instead for 1-2-NO! They fight over a suplex, ending with Black flipping out into a schoolboy on Lynn for two, then the kick to the head! Lynn avoids the Paroxysm and hits a reverse DDT for 1-2-NO! Bridge into a backslide score a nearfall for Lynn. Pele Kick by Black! To follow up on the kick, he charges Lynn in the corner and gets tossed out to the floor! Black avoids a dive, so Lynn springboard dives on him when he’s not looking! And Nigel McGuinness is shown at ringside cheering both men on. WHAT. Back on the apron, Lynn avoids the shoulder butt through the ropes and drops the leg on Black. Always hated that move, because it’s so unrealistic. Lynn goes for the sunset flip powerbomb, but Black grabs the ropes and punches out to legdrop Lynn on the apron! Okay, that wasn’t too bad. Springboard Clothesline connects! Cover, 1-2-NO! Black goes for the Buckle Bomb, but Lynn counters with a rana to send Black crashing into the corner. They fight up top over a Super God’s Last Gift, but Lynn fires back and gets the Sunset Flip Powerbomb after all for 1-2-NO! TKO by Lynn gets two. Black counters the Cradle Piledriver with an F-5. That gets two. Paroxysm is delivered for 1-2-NO! Black hits the Buckle Bomb and nails the Superkick for 1-2-WHAT! Nigel drapes Lynn’s foot across the bottom rope. Black turns his attention onto Nigel, allowing Lynn enough time to regroup and counter God’s Last Gift with a small package for the 1-2-3. (16:38) Some decent nearfalls, but the crowd was really not into this match. I think it could have been better. ***¼

Before we go, Nigel McGuinness reminds Tyler Black that he should keep his ‘eye on the ball’. Boy, that’s got to get irritating for poor Tyler.

No word on next week’s main event! SURPRISES~!

  1. How dare you say something bad about Jerry Lynn’s apron leg drop move! Naw, to be honest, I know what you mean. I think it was really cool back in the day when you weren’t expecting it and it was pulled off right, but I could certainly see how it may have gotten overused after so many years and lost its surprise factor. I mean, aren’t we supposed to believe these guys study each other before competing? Don’t they learn not to go for a shoulder butt through the ropes on Jerry Lynn?

  2. Hahaha. Nah, I hate it because the opponent just sticks his head through the ropes and leaves it there when Lynn clearly has not been hit with the shoulder butt whatsoever. It’s just unrealistic to me, that’s all. When he does that spot, I’m fully aware that I’m watching a choreographed “competition of wills”. Maybe if he stepped aside and kicked his opponent in the head first and then jumped up for the legdrop, it would be more realistic.
