Recap by: Jason Namako of Wrestleview.com
This week begins a series of “Road Rage” editions of ROH TV of the Death Before Dishonor XIII shows from August 22nd & 23rd from Milwaukee & Chicago Ridge. This week, we see matches from the Milwaukee show.
We go to a promo from the Briscoes. Mark says that its been a couple years, Young Bucks, since we got to do this thing in the squared circle. Jay says that the last time we wrestled the Young Bucks two-on-two, I recited some poetry for y’all, but I don’t think they took it the right way, though. So, now that y’all are all old and grown up and some bad asses, let me go ahead and bless y’all with this. Mark then does some beat-boxing while Jay raps “Milwaukee, Wisconsin, home of the Brewkies, Sandy Fork’s own vs. the Young Buck Brew-skis. Ain’t no p***y b***h s**t like Matt Hardy, #DemBoys here vs. the #SuperkickParty”. And the hell with y’all superkicks, by the way. Y’all can superkick, guess what? I can superkick to. I don’t give a damn, I’ll superkick ya b***hes head off, Jackson boys, watch this, I’ll superkick ya head off, b***h!
We see the usual intro, then Caprice Coleman joins commentary for our opening match.

Back from commercial, the Decade is in the ring. Jimmy Jacobs says welcome to the house that the Decade built. The Decade, BJ Whitmer, Jimmy Jacobs and Roderick Strong, have built this company for the past decade, but we’re worried about the next decade, that’s why we’ve taken young boys like TD Thomas and Adam Page under our wing. The problem is, kids don’t listen, ears open, mouths shut, kids don’t listen and these two kids have not been catching on quickly enough, so Roderick Strong made the decision himself to delegate the responsiblity of teaching these kids some vital lessons to his friend, to my friend, to our friend, to your friend. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back, Adam “Scrap Daddy” Pearce!
Pearce makes his way down to the ring. Jacobs says that when he was 16 years old, Adam Pearce clotheslined me so hard in my face that it knocked out my back tooth. The same way you taught me respect, Adam, beat it in to TD.
We see highlights from Adam Pearce against TD Thomas that saw Pearce get the win with the Piledriver. Afterwards, Whitmer has words with TD, who gets in Whitmer’s face. Jacobs gets in-between the two and says that tonight was a learning experience, TD, if you were smart, that was a learning experience, you have all the potential in the world, but you keep falling short. You showed aggression, but you fell for the oldest trick in the book, you got a lot of learning to do, kid.
Next week, from Milwaukee, its Silas Young challenging champion Michael Elgin for the ROH World Title. We go to a promo from Michael Elgin, who says that next week, the self-proclaimed “Last Real Man” Silas Young gets his chance at the ROH World Title. The problem with a chance at this, Silas, is that you have to go through me. The statement of the being the last real man in pro wrestling, well, I’ll show you that you are not the last real man, I am.
