Kevin and Nigel welcome a new announcer to the table, and they put over the next match, where the winner will recieve a ROH contract!
-Matt Taven vs. QT Marshall vs. Antonio Thomas vs. Vinny Marseglia
Lots of quick exchanges and tags early on in this match. It is worth noting that in a ROH 4-Way match, there are only two opponents in the ring at any given time, who tag in and out. It's not long before the referee loses control of things and we have all four guys brawling in the ring. Some sloppy work as things broke down.
Match went on with dozens of exchanges and big spots from these four independent workers. There's entirely too much chaos to keep track of, but Matt Taven held a lot of the momentum throughout. A great moment with Taven hitting a springboard moonsault onto QT, followed by a spinning DDT picking up only a 2-count. Eventuallly QT Marshall clears the ring of Thomas and Marseglia, before countering Taven and hitting his finisher for the win.
Winner, and recipient of a ROH contract: QT Marshall
