ROH live event (Richmond, Va.)
Report by Chris Shore and ProWrestling.net
Chris Hero was unable to make the show due to being stuck in an airport.
Davey Richards opened the show with an interview. He put over Eddie Edwards and called for him to come out. Roderick STrong and Truth Martini came out and pretended to cry like Richards did at the end of the Best in the World pay-per-view.
Michael Elgin and Edwards came out and everyone faced off. The House of Truth ended up retreating.
1. Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole beat Cedric Alexander and Caprice Coleman. Alexander is the Pro Wrestling Evo Champion. Fantastic opener.
2. The Bravado Brothers defeated The Briscoes. The Bravados won the match after Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas interfered, and Benjamin superkicked Jay Briscoe through a chair.
3. Kenny King beat Mike Bennett. Rhett Titus convinced the ref that King’s tights were pulled for the reversed decision. Bennett attacked Titus, and Jim Cornette booked Bennett to face Titus. Bennett attacked Titus, and then Cornette booked Bennett vs. Titus.
4. Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas beat Colt Cabana and El Generico to retain the ROH Tag Titles. The Briscoes tried to interfere before the match. Cornette banned them from the building. Haas and Benjamin botched a double team finishing move, and Benjamin won with Paydirt. He cut a promo afterward in which he said that he sucked tonight and then stormed to the back. Cabana said his team was good and were beaten by the World’s Greatest Tag Team, so they didn’t suck.
5. Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole beat The Bravados via submission. It appeared one of the Bravados may have suffered a legit injury. O’Reilly and Cole won the tag team lottery to earn a future ROH Tag Title shot at $5,000.
6. Rhett Titus defeated Mike Bennett. The crowd was hot against Bennett. Titus won after King prevented Bennett from using a chain that was hidden in his boot. Good match.
7. The American Wolves (Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards) beat Roderick Strong and Michael Elgin. The Wolves won after Davey hit a sick kick on Elgin, who is a stud. Excellent match and an awesome night.
