We see video from Death Before Dishonor XI when Adam Cole won the ROH World Title, but then laid out Jay Briscoe and Michael Elgin.

We see the usual intro, then go to the opening match.

Adam Page vs. ACH

Chain wrestling early. Page with a roll-up for a nearfall. ACH tries a leapfrog, but Page counters with a spinebuster for a nearfall. Back suplex for a nearfall. ACH fights back with chops. ACH is sent onto the apron, but hits an enziguri. Paydirt variation for a nearfall. Page comes back by sweeping the leg, standing Shooting Star Press for a nearfall. ACH sidesteps a charge, Page to the outside. ACH charges and connects with Air Jordan! Back in, ACH heads up top.

ACH hits the Freebird Crossbody, but Page rolls through it and gets the win.

Winner: Adam Page by pinfall


Back from commercial, ROH match-maker Nigel McGuinness is in the ring. Nigel talks about Death Before Dishonor and the semi-finals and finals of the ROH World Title tournament. Nigel says at the end of the finals, how proud he was to be in ROH, but after what Adam Cole did to Jay Briscoe and Michael Elgin after the finals, how embarassed he was. Nigel announces the Champions vs. All-Stars main event at Glory by Honor XI on 10/26. Adam Cole, reDRagon & Matt Taven vs. a team of ROH all-stars. If someone pins Cole, they get a ROH World Title shot. Michael Elgin will be on the all-star team.

Jay Briscoe’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Jay says to Nigel how can he have that match without the real ROH World Champion in it. Jay knows he is still injured, but he will be cleared soon. His dad told him if whoever won the ROH World Title did so like a man, then to hand the title to that person, but Adam Cole superkicked him and that makes Adam Cole a b***h. Jay says he will be cleared 5 days before Glory by Honor XI. He has done what Michael Elgin could not do at Death Before Dishonor and that’s beat Adam Cole.

Michael Elgin’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Elgin says that he had the match won against Cole, but the ref was knocked down. Jay did not defend the ROH World Title against him when Jay was champion. I’m not looking at the past, I’m looking at the future. It doesn’t matter who is on his team at Glory by Honor, he will beat every champion and get another title shot. For 6 months, he fought for Nigel’s defintion of honor, but now, I’m done. I now fight for own defintion of honor. Jay claims he is the real ROH world champion, but I am the uncrowned champion.

Referees come in to get in-between Jay & Elgin as we go to commercial.


Mike Mondo vs. Roderick Strong

Chain wrestling early. Mondo with a shoulder tackle, but Strong with a belly-to-back backbreaker for a nearfall. Mondo comes back with a urnangi for a nearfall. Mondo with knees to the head, clothesline for another nearfall. Chinlock applied, but Strong fights out with a series of kicks. Strong heads up top, missile dropkick for a nearfall. Running knee and a running forearm in the corner. Strong places Mondo on top and hits a superplex for a nearfall. Strong lifts up Mondo, but Mondo slips out and rolls up Strong for a nearfall. Strong with a discus forearm and a leaping knee strike.

Back from commercial, Marshall Law are in the ring. Veda Scott says that by watching Manhattan Mayhem V, you were witnesses to a crime, an assault. Marshall Law were the victims and Outlaws Inc. were the culprits. ROH let those mentally ill degenerates share the same ring with them with no chance to prepare. RD Evans says his consuel has encouraged him and QT to seek justice in a court of law against ROH & Nigel McGuinness. Tonight, they face Outlaws Inc, but this time, they are prepared.

Marshall Law (QT Marshall & RD Evans) w/Veda Scott vs. Outlaws Inc. (Homicide & Eddie Kingston)

Outlaws Inc. with the Doomsday Bulldog to RD for the win.

Afterwards, Homicide once again breaks the fingers of RD.

Kingston has a mic and introduces himself and Homicide. Outlaws Inc. is here to help Nigel McGuinness clean up ROH. But before they can do so, they have business with reDRagon. Kingston calls out reDRagon so Outlaws Inc. can beat them up prison style. Outlaws Inc. grab chairs and says they are not leaving until reDRagon comes out.


Back from commercial, commentary says that security had to remove Outlaws Inc. from the building. Now, its time for the main event.

Ref believes Lethal and ejects the H.O.T. from ringside. Lethal with a series of right hands and chops. Hiptoss/cartwheel/dropkick combo sending Taven to the outside.

The H.O.T. come back out and celebrate with Taven. Code of Honor adhered to. Martini has a mic and says he knew Taven could do it. There are good, great and special wrestlers. Taven is special because he has HOOPLA in his veins. For 6 months he has been the ROH TV Champion and will soon go down as the greatest ROH TV Champion in company history. The H.O.T. celebrate some more as we go to credits.
