Shaheem Ali & “The Outlaw” Ken Phoenix v. Shane Taylor & Keith Lee
Taylor and Lee put on another great display, with Keith Lee hitting an amazing somersault plancha that got the crowd on fire. They are local San Antonio talent that had a great display last night as well. They finished off Phoenix with an assisted sit-out powerbomb for the win.
WINNER: Shane Taylor & Keith Lee
Match One: ROH World Champion Jay Lethal (w/ Taeler Hendrix) v. Cheeseburger
Jay cut a promo talking Colt Cabana’s return last night. He says Colt can’t walk in and just get a title shot. He says Colt probably isn’t here and he’s most likely somewhere doing a podcast. He said there are more deserving contenders like Cheeseburger. So he said today is his lucky day and said if Cheeseburger comes out, he’ll get a title shot. The music played and it’s on!
Lethal dominated the proceedings, beating him down with the occasional hope spot for Cheeseburger. Lethal also started pulling Cheeseburger off the mat before the three count was made just to add insult to injury. He hit a Lethal Injection. The crowd chanted “one more time,” but Lethal flipped them off and covered him for the win.
WINNER: Jay Lethal
Colt came out after in full gear. He insulted Lethal for calling out Cheeseburger. He said last night wasn’t a publicity stunt and that he was home again. Colt said they should do it now. Lethal waved him off and started walking away. Colt tried getting him back in, but Lethal wouldn’t bite. Colt then blasted him for listening to Taeler and said he lost his balls. Jay got hot and said lets do it and the match was on!
Match Two: Jay Lethal v. Colt Cabana
They started brawling on the floor to start it off. Taeler provided a distraction that allowed Lethal to get the advantage and not a Crash & Burn suicide dive.
Lethal set him up for Lethal Injection, but Colt rolled him up REALLY snug and scored the flash win!
Winner: Colt Cabana
Colt stood over Jay and smiled while Lethal was in shock! And now we have a title match down the line!
Colt got on the mic and said that’s how you come back. Some of the crowd didn’t like it, but most were loud for it.
Match Three: The All Night Express (Kenny King & Rhett Titus) v. ACH & Matt Sydal
They went flying early as ACH hit his signature inside the second rope somersault plancha to the floor! ACH & Sydal then controlled the action early, working over Rhett was able to work his way free and get King in. From there, ANX got the heat on Sydal.
When ACH got the hot tag, he went wild with moves that got the crowd fired up. He and Sydal teamed up on Titus and got the win after a Sydal Shooting Star Press and an ACH 450 Splash!
WINNERS: ACH & Matt Sydal
Match Four: Will Ferrera v. Donovan Dijak
Dijak had his ribs taped up from the night before, and Ferrera was doing his best to exploit the injury to overcome his size dosadvantage.
Dijak hit an absurd moonsault to the floor that may have actually missed. Then he slipped trying to do a springboard into the ring and may have hurt himself.
He seemed not to show any effects and kept going. Ferrera kept going, but couldn’t overcome the size. Dijak got him up and hit the Feast Your Eyes (Burning Hammer into a GTS) for the win!
WINNER: Donovan Dijak
After the match, Joey Daddiego jumped Dijak and worked over his ribs to keep the pressure on in their feud.
Match Five: Roderick Strong v. Bobby Fish – Best 2 out of 3 Falls
If you can believe it, Fish and Strong started off the match by hitting each other really hard. And they kept doing that throughout.
Strong used a distraction with the ref to blindside Fish with a jumping knee and hit the suplex into a backbreaker to win the first fall.
Fish almost lost the next fall on a count out but beat the count at 19.9999. Strong continued to chop Fish to hell and try to wear him out, but after a couple of hope spots, Fish was able to fight back and score a roll-up pin to tie it up.
Fish was able to gain some momentum and go on the offensive for a little bit. He did a little Muta hand gesture and hit a moonsault for a near fall.
They then traded submissions. Fish got out of the Stronghold, but unfortunately for him, Strong was unable to break the kneebar and Fish gets the third fall and the win!
WINNER: Bobby Fish
P-Dog & Rafael King from last night’s pre-show came out with their entourage and put down Moose. This brought out Moose who dropkicked every guy in the crew as they sat on the top turnbuckle one by one. This turned into Moose beating up all four guys in this crew while the three women watched. He got a great reaction from the crowd, but no official match.
MATCH SIX: Silas Young & Beer City Bruiser v. ROH World Tag Team Champions War Machine
Silas gets on the mic and says he’s never met a more rude crowd than here in Dallas. He says people love War Machine, but if they are so great, make this a title match. They agreed and the belts are on the line!
After a strong flurry from War Machine, Silas & Bruiser isolated Rowe and got the heat on him. Rowe eventually got the tag to Hanson and he used his force to take it to Young & Bruiser. He and Rowe got Young down and got a near fall on a frog splash.
Bruiser with a somersault from the apron to the floor on Rowe to a huge pop. Bruiser went up top, but Rowe recovered and got him with a big belly to belly superplex! Hanson with a suicide dive to Bruiser outside. They concluded the match with the Fallout double team for the win!
WINNERS: War Machine
Match Seven: BJ Whitmer v. Dalton Castle
Castle attempted to use his mind games (aka acting strange) to get into Whitmer’s head, and it seemed to get Whitmer off his game. This lasted until Whitmer hit a huge spinebuster and got the heat on Castle. This crowd, like most other ROH crowds, hate BJ and treated him with indifference.
The match turned into a bit of a slugfest from there, with Whitmer hitting a lot of stiff shots. Castle hit a very impressive deadlift German suplex for a near fall. They went back and forth before BJ stole one of the Boys’ masks! Dalton got pissed and finished the match with the Bang-A-Rang!
WINNER: Dalton Castle
Adam Page got up from commentary and got in the ring. He told BJ that The Decade had a meaning, but they lost it when BJ became obsessed with Steve Corino. It cost him his biggest match with Jay Briscoe, and he wants to kill him for it. Page told BJ he is going to “cut the cancer” out in San Antonio later this month when they have a San Antonio Street Fight!
Match Eight: The Addicition (Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian) v. The Briscoes v. Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) v. The Young Bucks
Good luck to me trying to describe this one. Here it goes.
The beginning of the match consisted of a lot of double team moves by each team to showcase them and get them a big reaction. The big spot in this was a suplex involving all eight men for a gigantic reaction. Another big one was Jay and Mark doing a double under hook toss onto Matt, flinging him over the top and out to the floor onto the other guys in the match.
The match (eventually) became a traditional four corner tag with Mark Briscoe becoming the victim of getting the heat on him.
That didn’t last long as the match turned into chaos again. Tons of highspots and superkicks followed with the crowd going insane for each one. That included Mark suplexing Kazarian to the outside onto the waiting teams.
The finish came when The Briscoes hit the Doomsday Device onto Daniels for the win.
WINNERS: The Briscoes
Stokely Hathaway came to the ring with Moose. He said Gedo called him and said Moose earned his respect, and because of those, Moose with team with Kazuchika Okada. They didn’t name an opponent.
MAIN EVENT: No Holds Barred – Adam Cole v. Kyle O’Reilly
Cole jumped him before he could get to the ring, and the long awaited fight is on. Cole went to superkick Kyle, but he ducked and Cole hit Mandy Leon instead, who was sitting at the timekeeper’s table. She ended up being carried out.
Kyle set a guardrail up across two others to create a table effect. They fought on top of it until Kyle suplexed him across it. Later, Cole suplexed Kyle from the apron to the floor. Both got a huge reaction.
Cole wrapped Kyle’s left leg in a chair, then took another chair and hit the chair around his leg to establish what body part he was working. A little later, they went back and forth trying to chair shot each other, which ended with O’Reilly forearming the chair into Cole’s face!
O’Reilly had Cole in a standing guillotine on the apron, which prompted Cole to just fall forward and put both of them through the timekeeper’s table. After getting in the ring, that only got Cole a near fall.
O’Reilly got a large chain from under the ring and wrapped it across the top rope. It backfired when Cole used it to clothesline O’Reilly.
It didn’t matter. They proceeded to no-sell chair shots to the back and German suplexes in a Strong Style fire up kind of way. Cole got a near fall after a leaping knee with a chair.
Cole set up a table near the corner. He went for a big move, but Kyle fought back and superplexed him through it! Kyle didn’t have enough energy to cover, and when he got to him, it was only a two.
They traded shots for a long time until Kyle finally got the upper hand and brainbusted him onto an open chair. He wrapped the chain around Cole’s neck and arm and put in an armbar. Cole tried fighting out, but Kyle turned it into a triangle and Cole passed out.
WINNER: Kyle O’Reilly
Another amazing night of action! ROH brought two great nights of wrestling and there was no negativity from the crowd!
