Episode 1 (11/19)

1. “The Giant Killer” Mike Mondo vs. Alex Silva. Mondo wins with a double-arm DDT.

2. “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett w/ “Brutal” Bob Evans vs. Jamin Olivencia. Bennett wins with the Box Office Smash, and proclaims that he is the ROH Television Champion, even going so far as to give Olivencia a title shot, even though Bennett is not the champion.

3. ROH World Champion “The American Wolf” Davey Richards vs. Kyle O’Reilly w/Tony Kozina. Richards wins by stoppage when Kozina threw in the towel for O’Reilly as O’Reilly was trapped in a Richards’ ankle lock. Truth Martini was on commentary for this match and after the match, made an offer to Richards & O’Reilly. They beat Martini up for his troubles.

Episode 2 (11/26)

1. The C & C Wrestle Factory(Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander vs. “The Baddest Tag Team on the Planet” #DemBoys The Briscoes(Jay & Mark). Match goes to a no contest when ROH Tag Team Champions Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team(Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin) run in with steel chairs and chase the Briscoes all the way into the parking lot.

2. “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin w/Truth Martini vs Raphael Constantine & Sean Casey in a handicap match. Constantine & Casey are 2 OVW regulars, as is Silva and Olvencia. Elgin wins easy with a double Alabama Slam to both guys.

3. ROH TV Title: Jay Lethal(c) vs. “The Generic Luchador” El Generico. Once again, match goes to a 15 minute time limit draw, so again, nothing is settled between the two, and Lethal retains the TV title. Mike Bennett and “Brutal” Bob Evans came out and sat at ringside to watch this match, and brought food with them. With 3 minutes left in the time limit, Bennett grabbed the TV title, and put it on. Lethal went out and slapped Bennett on the floor. With the time limit almost expired, Lethal hit the Macho elbow, but Bennett had referee Todd Sinclair distracted, so the match ended in a draw. Lethal and Bennett fought on the floor after the match. El Generico then took them both out with a dive to the floor. The crowd chanted for 5 more minutes, but it didn’t happen.

Episode 3 (12/3)

1. “The Dominant Male” Tommaso Ciampa w/The Embassy vs. Shiloh Jonze. Ciampa wins easy with Project Ciampa.

2. Next came the Kevin Steen reinstatement angle. Kevin Kelly and Jim Cornette got into the ring with Steve Corino and Jimmy Jacobs. Steen came to the ring with attorney Chrisian Mascagni, and two other flunkys. Mascagni is another OVW regular as a manager/attorney, and is an attorney in real life. Cornette said Steen was a great wrestler, but that he was also legit crazy. Cornette said Steen is also an a**hole. Steen said none of that stuff insults him, and called Cornette a hypocritical piece of garbage. Steen said he carried ROH on his back for a year. Steen said Cornette hates him because he can’t control him.

Corino took the mic and said he created all of this, but said that Steen went too far. Steen said Corino and Jacobs have had their balls cut off, and are as pathetic now as Cornette. Corino said he would face Steen at Final Battle on December 23rd, and if Steen wins he’s reinstated. Corino said he would be an evil person on that night. Cornette then said Jimmy Jacobs would be the referee for that match. Steen loved that idea. Steen also demanded Cornette be at ringside for the match to watch him win his career back up close. Steen said it would become Kevin Steen’s Ring Of Honor.

3. The Young Bucks(Matt & Nick Jackson) vs. Future Shock(Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly. Bucks win this with More Bang For Your Buck on O’Reilly.

Episode 4 (12/10)

1. The C & C Wrestle Factory vs. The Bravado Brothers(Harlem & Lancelot). Coleman & Alexander get the win here in what has to be considered a small upset.

2. T.J. Perkins vs. Chris Silvio. Silvio is another OVW regular that was used during these tapings. Perkins gets the win.

3. Proving Ground Match: The All Night Express(“The Pretty Boy Pitbull” Kenny King & Rhett Titus) vs. ROH World Tag Team Champions Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team. ANX get the win after The Briscoes hit Benjamin in the back with a steel chair while the referee was distracted and ANX hits the One Night Stand. With the win, The All Night Express will receive a ROH Tag Team Title Shot within the next 90 days. After the match, Benjamin stays down and Haas cuts a pissed off promo, playing off the fact that Benjamin may not be able to compete at Final Battle because of the Briscoes’ attack.

Episode 5 (12/17)

1. “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards vs. Andy “Right Leg” Ridge. Martini was on commentary for this match as well. Edwards gets the win easily with the Achilles’ Lock.

2. Proving Ground Match: ROH World Champion “The American Wolf” Davey Richards vs. “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin w/Truth Martini. Richards gets the win with 2 minutes left in the 20 minute time limit with a Sunset Flip. After the match, Elgin goes after Richards and beats him down until Eddie Edwards comes in. Edwards grabs the ROH World Title belt and goes to hit Elgin, but “accidentally” hits Richards with it. Richards got pissed off and took Edwards down, and they started fighting. Kyle O’Reilly and Tony Kozina ran out trying to break this up, but it was to no avail. It became a full fledged pull apart that lasted quite awhile. Jim Cornette finally got in the ring trying to break it up, but had no luck either. Cornette called for more help from the back. Nigel McGuinness went to ringside trying to calm the situation down, but also to no avail, as both men finally got removed from one another, both yelling “The Wolves are Done”.
