Back from commercial, we see the pearly whites of Mark Briscoe.

This ain’t our 1st rodeo together and y’all are one of the best tag teams in the world, but you ain’t #DemBoys from Sandy Fork, Delaware, see y’all next week!
We go to the commentary table where Kevin Kelly says that originally, it was supposed to be Paul London vs. Michael Elgin this week, but London suffered a concussion during his match with Davey Richards at Border Wars and doctors have said they will not allow London to compete this week.
We go to highlights of the end of the London/Richards match at Border Wars before we go to commercial.
“Inside Ring of Honor”
We go to comments first from Mark Briscoe. Mark says its been 28 years now that I have been getting picked on by my big brother. Mark tells a story from basketball practice when he & Jay were kids where after they picked everyone up from practice, Jay punched him in the car in front of everyone, breaking his nose for no good reason. Mark tells another story where they were playing and Jay got a pellet gun and nailed Mark with a pellet, for no good reason in front of everyone. Finally, Mark tells a story from graduation where Jay tried to embarrass him in front of all the girls, but this time, I had grown up enough where I slammed his ass. Nothing has changed since then, Best in the World, little brother is gonna be the man.
We now go to comments from Jay Briscoe. Jay says he is proud of the man Mark has become, a father, a husband, one helluva pro wrestler. The reason Mark is who he is today is because he has had me looking over him for 28 years. Believe me, taking care of Mark Briscoe is not an easy job. He’s a simple boy. As far back as I can remember, I’ve had to whoop his ass, not to be mean, just to keep him straight. He ain’t got no sense. My parents & sister used to yell at him and used to get at me for whopping his ass, but I was just trying to keep him in line. He now walks around smiling with teeth missing, who do you think knocked out those teeth? Has that big ol’ nose, who do you think broke his nose? In Baltimore, I’m gonna have to whoop his ass again, straighten his ass out again. At Best in the World, in front of the whole Briscoe family, the time has come, the stars have aligned for me to whoop Mark’s ass.
Back from commercial, Michael Elgin & Paul London come out as matchmaker Nigel McGuinness is in the ring. Nigel puts over London’s match with Davey Richards and says that London proved he can still hang with the best. After what London did in ROH back in 2003, he has a spot in ROH for life. “You still got it” chants by the crowd. Nigel brings up the concussion and says that London vs. Elgin will happen sometime down the line. London & Elgin shake hands as Nigel gives London the mic.
However, they are interrupted by QT Marshall & RD Evans who make their way down to the ring. Evans gets a mic and says as much as he hates to interrupt this mutual respect love affair……Evans is then interrupted by the crowd yelling “Shut the F Up”. Evans says to Nigel to get London & Elgin out of the ring because the only thing the people care about is the injustice that has gone in the ROH Tag Division. The fact that reDRagon didn’t even bother to show up to Border Wars. “Shave your Mustache” chants by the crowd as Evans says that if the tag champs can’t show up, they should be stripped of the titles and make myself & QT Marshall the new tag champions, because we are on an unprecedented winning streak. “You just lost” chants as Evans says no, we didn’t lose, we weren’t the ones pinned. Evans rips on London, telling him to step away and piefaces him, but that leads Elgin to nail Evans with a right hand.
Elgin looks at QT, but QT wants none of Elgin and begins backing up the ramp. However, we hear the familiar beeping as the music of Tomasso Ciampa hits and he makes his way on the rampway. QT tries to get away, but Ciampa stops him. Ciampa sends QT multiple times into the barricade, then lifts him up and hits an Air Raid Crash on the rampway! Ciampa heads to the ring as Evans tries to run away, but Elgin stops him. Elgin gives Evans to Ciampa, who lifts up Evans and hits him with Project Ciampa!
Ciampa then stops Elgin, who is starting to leave the ring and says something in his ear. Elgin then does the same and the two go nose-to-nose. Multiple referees come out to separate the two as we go to commercial.
We go to a promo from the American Wolves. Davey Richards says that when you talk about tag-team rivalries, the Wolves vs. the Briscoes is right up there and it continues next week. Eddie Edwards says that we have yet to beat the Briscoes, but next week, it all changes. We are the American Wolves and the HUNT IS ON!!!!
Back from commercial, its time for our main event.

Winner and #1 Contender to the ROH TV Title: Jay Lethal by pinfall (Lethal Injection)
Lethal celebrates his win while Steve Corino blows a gasket at the commentary table. Maria then acts like Whitmer said something derogatory to her, which causes Bennett to attack Whitmer. The two exchange blows as Kelly mentions that Whitmer didn’t say anything to Maria. Maria laughs and says does it really matter if Whitmer did or not? Its about time I got a little respect around here. Referees & security come out to separate Whitmer & Bennett while Maria is happy about the trouble she has caused as we go to credits.
