We go to a promo from Michael Elgin. Elgin says that when people talk about “can’t miss” TV, they talk about next week’s episode of ROH TV because you get to witness “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin vs. AJ Styles. AJ, I asked for this match and you might be wondering, why would someone ask to wrestle me? Its simple, if can’t beat a man like you, then I don’t deserve to be ROH World Champion and that’s what this is all about, AJ. Its about a legacy of being the best that ROH has ever seen. Adam Cole, I want you to pull your chair up real close to that television, look and watch what I do to AJ because I know you saw what I did to Matt Hardy, I know you remember what I did to you in Chicago. So Cole, just think, everything I do, every strike, every move, you’re on my mind.
