We see the usual intro, then we see video highlighting Jay Briscoe defeating Michael Elgin for the ROH World Title at the All-Star Extravaganza VI iPPV in Toronto on September 6.
We go to the ring, where Kevin Kelly is there and introduces the new ROH World Champion, Jay Briscoe. Jay makes his way down to the ring. Crowd chants “Man Up” for the new champion. Jay says that the gameplan going in was to break the unbreakable and now, I can safely say that Michael Elgin’s ass done been broke. This ain’t my first rodeo and I realize that everyone’s gonna be gunning for me. I know that I got a big bullseye on my ass and I know that people think they gonna be able to take this title off me, so if you think you got what it takes, go ahead, take your best shot. But I got to warn you, I shoot back and I got real heavy artilery and a whole bunch of armor, baby. The Title of Love, yeah I seen it, all pink and s**t. You know that title, man, that belt that Maria Kanellis & Michael Bennett carry around, that means something special to me. You know, it grew legs and it walked to me. Now that its all pinked out and furred out, there’s gonna come a day, I promise you, there’s gonna come a day that come hell or high water, I’m gonna get that sumb***h back and when I do, I can guarantee ya that the Kingdom is gonna crumble like 8-week old chicken s**t, man.
The music of Adam Cole hits and he makes his way onto the rampway. Cole says that he wanted to come out and say to Jay, congratulations. Because just when I thought your first title reign couldn’t be anymore embarassing, you had to go and win the title for a second time. Jay, this hatred between you and me is never gonna end, its never gonna stop because I hate your stupid, redneck, chicken-farming, guts.
Jay says that he hates Cole’s stupid, pretty-boy, b***h-ass.
Cole says that we wouldn’t have it any other way, would we?
Jay says hell no.
Cole says that as long as Jay is in this company, I’m gonna make sure that each and every time that you are here that your life is an absolute living hell and that living hell, it starts tonight, because I’m gonna win the Honor Rumble and become the #1 Contender and in 2 weeks time, I’ll get my ROH World Title back and back where it belongs, in the Kingdom.
“Man Up” chants by the crowd. Jay says the hell with waiting for 2 weeks, we can do this s**t right now.
Cole begins walking to the ring as Jay gets ready to fight, but security stops Cole from getting in the ring. Cole flips off Jay and walks to the back, saying he’ll get him on his time.
Jay says that he hopes Adam Cole does win the Honor Rumble so that in 2 weeks, I can whip his little b***h-ass.
Back from commercial, we go to a promo from the Decade. Jimmy Jacobs that the winner of the Honor Rumble gets a shot at the ROH World Title. There are 20 guys in this match and 5 of us. Whitmer cuts Jacobs off, saying there is 4 guys here, where is your boy, TD? Jacobs says he is not happy that TD is not here, but at the end of the day, he will come through. Strong says that he gets what the Decade is about and I understand the bond that the three of us have, but tonight, tonight’s an opportunity for me. Whitmer cuts off Strong, asking how many opportunities as Strong had. Strong & Whitmer argue and Jacobs has to play peacemaker. Jacobs tells the cameraman to stop rolling, but we see Jacobs telling Whitmer & Strong that its about the Decade, we need to show these kids what this company is about. Before Jacobs can continue, Strong, then Whitmer & Page walk off on opposite directions.

Cedric, two words that would be used to describe you, promise and potential. Let me give you a sentence that describes Adam Cole, he’s the best damn pro wrestler on the planet.
