We go backstage with the C & C Wrestlefactory. Cedric Alexander says that tonight is the night we get our shot at the ROH Tag Team Titles by facing reDRagon and the Forever Hooligans. Caprice Coleman says that tonight, C & C will humble the Hooligans and slay the reDRagon. All of a sudden, reDRagon walks in. Bobby Fish says this hurricane of irony has seemed to get a bit out of control. You talk about beating YOUR Ring of Honor Tag Team Champions, this will certainly not be your first shot and remember, you did not get done what you wanted to get done the last time. Neither has anybody else in Ring of Honor when its come to myself because I’ve let to have my shoulders pinned. Kyle O’Reilly just tapped out Davey Richards, no small feat. You end up tonight just another victory in the epic tale that is becoming reDRagon. Kyle O’Reilly says to not chase the dragon. reDRagon leaves as O’Reilly says they are going to do squat thrusts. Cedric goes to say something about that, but Caprice stops him and says its better to be silent and ignorant than to speak and remove all doubt, leave it alone.
We see video of when Adam Cole superkicked Jay Briscoe after winning the ROH World Title at Death Before Dishonor XI.
We go back to the ring and new music hits for the new ROH World Champion Adam Cole. Cole comes out wearing a swank purple suit jacket. Cole has a new entrance with a gold spotlight when he gets on the ring apron. Crowd chants for Cole, including “new world champ”. Cole has a mic and says he is Adam Cole and he is the new Ring of Honor World Champion. The definition of a champion at its core, at its foundation, is your realization of becoming a real man. A real man does what he wants, says what he wants, in order to get what he wants and well, I’ve gotten what I want. After years of hard work and dedication, I’ve achieved my dream, my golden dream that’s around my waist around now. When I first started wrestling, everyone told me that if I wanted to be successful, if I wanted to achieve greatness, you have to make sure you shake everyone’s hand, you have make sure you smile and above all else, you have to show that you happy to be there. Well, I realized that those people were trying to keep me down from the inevitable, which is being the best damn pro wrestler on the planet. No more shaking hands, no more fake smiles, no more being happy to be here because if I was just happy to be here, I wouldn’t be YOUR Ring of Honor World Champion. In order to get things you’ve never gotten, you have to do things you’ve never done, which brings me to two men who claim to be the “real world champion”, when in reality, they’re two “real losers.” They’re the two men I left lying in the middle of MY ring single-handedly at Death Before Dishonor. People ask me why after Jay Briscoe handed you the ROH World Title, after he shook your hand, how in the world could you kick him in the back of the head? Let’s go on a trip down memory lane, shall we? When Jay Briscoe challenged Kevin Steen for the ROH World Title, all of his friends and family were there to celebrate it. After years of hard work, Jay achieved his dream and in Philadelphia at Death Before Dishonor when I become ROH World Champion, Jay Briscoe tries to ruin MY moment. Jay Briscoe tries to rain on my parade and ol’ washed-up Jay Briscoe should feel lucky that all I did was kick him in the back of the head. Which brings me to Michael Elgin. Since me & Elgin started in ROH, we have been labeled as the breakout stars of the company, we are the future. When the reality is, the only reason I was in that class with Michael Elgin was that was Ring of Honor’s way of masking and hiding that they wanted Michael Elgin to be their poster boy. Elgin is on every DVD cover, on the front of every poster……………….
All of a sudden, the music of Michael Elgin hits and he makes his way to the ring. Nigel leaves to go get security. Elgin charges at the ring, but Cole slides out of the ring and backs up the rampway. Elgin says that its only a matter of time. Cole talks trash to Elgin from the rampway, but all of a sudden, Jay Briscoe walks up behind Cole. Jay backs Cole up to the ring. Cole gets in where Elgin is waiting for him. Elgin misses a clothesline and Cole slips out of the ring again, but without the ROH World Title. Cole wants his belt back as Elgin holds up the title belt. Jay grabs the title belt and he & Elgin have a tug-of-war with the belt. Referees and security get in-between the two as we go to commercial.
Next week, its Jimmy Jacobs vs. Silas Young in the first match of Jimmy Jacobs’ trial series. Silas Young says that a lot of Mid-West cities are getting to see ROH, but what they are lacking is a real man. Next week, Jimmy Jacobs, you will find out what a real man is. You don’t dress like a man, you don’t look like a man, you don’t do anything that represents a man. Next week, you will find out what a man is all about.
Back from commercial, Prince Nana joins Kevin Kelly on commentary while Nigel left to go handle the situation with Briscoe, Cole & Elgin. We go to our next match.
Team Sexy (Michael Bennett & Maria Kanellis) vs. The Brutal Burgers (Brutal Bob Evans & Cheeseburger)
Evans & Bennett start, but Maria wants in. Bennett tags her in. Maria tells Evans where to kiss it. Evans then tags in Cheeseburger. Maria shoves Cheeseburger, but Cheeseburger with a side headlock. Cheeseburger goes for a shoulder tackle, but Maria does not go down. Cheeseburger tries again, but to no avail. Maria goes nose-to-nose, yelling at him to try to knock her down again. Cheeseburger goes to do it, but while Maria distracts the ref, Bennett nails Cheeseburger from behind on the apron. Bennett in, big slam. Maria in, rakes the face of Cheeseburger with her boot. Bennett back in, stomps away at Cheeseburger. Maria calls for the piledriver as Cheeseburger is crawling to make a tag. Bennett stops him, but Cheeseburger plays a game of cat & mouse, twice crawling under Bennett’s legs, before tagging in Evans. Evans with a series of right hands. Evans places Bennett on the top rope and hits a series of chest clubs, followed by a running one. Evans picks up Bennett from the corner and hits a tossing powerbomb. Evans fires up and measures Bennett. Evans charges, but runs into a right hand. Bennett goes for the piledriver, but Cheeseburger leaps off the top, however Bennett catches him in mid-air off a crossbody attempt. Bennett throws Cheeseburger at Evans, but Evans catches him and begins to use Cheeseburger as a weapon to knock down Bennett. Maria in, but she gets knocked down. Evans with a back body drop, then places Cheeseburger on his shoulders and uses him as a Battering Ram to nail Bennett. Cheeseburger grabs Bennett and the Brutal Burgers hit a double Stunner, but Maria breaks up the pinfall. Evans measures Bennett again, but Cheeseburger tags in. Cheeseburger heads up top, leaps over Bennett, but then Bennett DRILLS Cheeseburger with a Spear! Bennett then knocks Evans off the apron with a Superkick.
Photo Finish to Cheeseburger for the win.
Winners: Team Sexy by pinfall (The Photo Finish)
Bennett grabs a mic afterward. Bennett says that apparently, I’m the talk of the town. Why? Apparently I’m the one who ended BJ Whitmer’s career. BJ stepped in the ring with me, I picked him up and I dropped him straight on his head. Everybody says that makes me cold-hearted, makes me heartless, they tell me that I don’t know what I am doing. All it really means is that I have the best piledriver in professional wrestling. You know what, I will show you why right now. Bennett grabs Cheeseburger and sets for the piledriver, but all of a sudden, the music of Kevin Steen hits and he makes his way out to ringside. Steen has a mic and says liar, liar, pants on fire to Bennett. Steen tells Evans to bring Cheeseburger to the back. Steen says he doesn’t have a problem with Bennett ending BJ Whitmer’s career. BJ’s a big boy, he knows the risks and he had a long, successful career at that. But trying to end Cheeseburger’s career before it even begins, however…………..no, actually, I don’t have a problem with that, either. What I do have a problem with you spreading lies about you having the best piledriver in wrestling, do ya? Let me drop you on your head real quick and we’ll see what you think then. But, that’s not the only thing you are lying about, is it? You’re in here bragging, acting all tough, about ending BJ Whitmer’s career. However, when it happened, you were in the back, crying like a little b***h! Maria then slaps Steen! Steen and Bennett begin slugging it out as referees and security come in to break the two up while we go to commercial.
Next week, its Lucha star Ricky Marvin vs. Davey Richards and Kevin Steen vs. Eddie Edwards. We go to comments from the American Wolves. Davey Richards says next week on TV, come watch wrestling that other companies try to emulate, but don’t quite get there. Next week, Eddie Edwards faces Kevin Steen. We know Steen pretty well. Great wrestler, not a personal friend of ours. Then, I face Ricky Marvin, a guy that has wrestled for many years and has been all over the world. Well, when you get to Philly, you’re running into an American brick wall in the American Wolves. Eddie Edwards says next week, the Wolves show why we are the best.
We see video on the ROH tag team scene over this past summer. We are ready to get to the main event, but then Steve Corino comes out and attempts to sit down to do commentary. Kelly says that Prince Nana is here with me, its not a three-man crew. Referees come out to remove Corino from the building. Kelly says this has got to stop. Corino agrees and goes to get up. Corino goes to leave, but instead, grabs a mic and says for three months Nigel McGuinness, Joe Koff, Ring of Honor, and Sinclair have been starving him out. I have a valid contract to be the permanent color commentator. Nigel comes out and hops up on the apron. Corino says that NOW, Nigel wants to talk to him. Corino says he is a family man and wants to be paid. Do what is right! Corino puts the mic on the top of his contract and leaves as we go to commercial.
