The broadcast team was Ian Riccaboni, BJ Whitmer, and Caprice Coleman.

1. Silas Young beat Cheeseburger to retain the ROH TV Title. A solid opener that went about ten minutes. You never thought Silas would lose, but there were a couple of good near falls. Bully Ray came out and confronted Cheeseburger in a scene similar to Supercard of Honor. Cheeseburger got in his face only to be chokeslammed. Flip Gordon tried to make the save and got some offense in until Bully hit a double clothesline on both Flip and Cheeseburger to end the segment.

2. Sumie Sakai, Tenille Dashwood, and Deonna Purrazzo over Brandi Rhodes, Madison Rayne, and Jenny Rose in 10:00. Mandy Leon sat in on commentary. After the match, Deonna challenged Kelly Klein to a match on April 27 in West Palm Beach.

3. The Young Bucks, Hangman Page, and Flip Gordon over Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, Scorpio Sky, and Shane Taylor in 20:00. A very good match. Flip’s alliance with the Bullet Club continues as Flip and Page hugged.

Intermission.

4. ROH Tag Team Champions Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe over Matt Fitchett and Davey Vega in 5:00. A glorified squash match.

5. Jay Lethal over Jonathan Gresham in 20:00. This was sensational. It started slow, but really picked up near the end. Not so much in the near fall department, but more so with the variety of attempted submissions by Gresham. The ending was cool. Gresham had Lethal is some form of an Octopus hold, and Lethal ended up rolling him up for the win. Lethal cut a promo after the match and put Gresham over. Gresham put over Lethal but challenged him to another match (no date was set).

6. Matt Taven over Cody in a First Blood match in 15:00. Ironically, there was a Dusty Finish here, as Cody accidentally punched one of the ROH Six-Man Title belts that Taven stole at Supercard of Honor. Cody then mounted Taven and started pounding his forehead until Taven had blood on his forehead. The referee called for the bell but awarded the match to Taven because the blood was from Cody’s hand.

7. Marty Scurll defeated Dalton Castle, Punishment Martinez, and Beer City Bruiser in a Defy or Deny match. By winning the match, Scurll is once again the No. 1 contender to the ROH Championship.

  1. man do I miss the ROH of years gone bye, in comparison to the presentation we’re currently getting. The show was ok but really nothing to write home about. They need to beef up their roster (outside of the guys from njpw) and present matches in the style and manner in which they used to years ago.
