Jim Cornette opened the night with a promo. This set of tapings will feature a Pick Six contenders series. Each hour will have a one-on-one match with the winner receiving $2500 and becoming eligible for a title shot.
Tonight’s ROH World Championship match will be a four-way match with Austin Aries defending against Roderick Strong, Davey Richards, and Kenny Omega. Brian guessed that this promo and the last two matches taped will be the first HDNet episode.
1) Delirious defeated Kenny King with a crucifix. This was the first Pick Six match. Fun match.
2) Steve Corino lost to a would-be jobber by forfeit. Corino refused the match, so it was awarded to his opponent, who he then beat up.
3) Erick Stevens won a squash match
4) Tyler Black defeated Sonjay Dutt. Tyler won the first-hour main event and the second Pick Six contest with God’s Last Gift.
5) Chris Hero defeated Kyle O?Reilly
6) Necro Butcher defeated Joey Ryan by disqualification. Ryan was caught throwing powder in Necro’s face.
7) Colt Cabana defeated Claudio Castagnoli. Colt scored the win with a roll-up to wrap up the second hour and earn $2500 and contender status.
8) The Briscoes defeated El Generico & Kevin Steen. The match was for a tag title shot at Final Battle. Mark may have injured his knee. The Briscoes won when Jay hit a Jay Driller on Steen and Mark pinned him.
9) Austin Aries defeated Davey Richards, Roderick Strong, and Kenny Omega to retain the ROH World Championship. Very good, action packed title match. The end featured a long strecth with Richards and Strong alone in the ring. Strong eventually got the best of it and hit a big move on Richards, but Aries snuck in and stole the pin.
Tomorrow’s Pick Six matches will include Richards vs. Strong and Jay Briscoe vs. Mark Briscoe.
