Show opens with a promo from ROH Tag Team Champions The Addiction.
Kazarian says congrats to reDRagon, your bitching, pissing, moaning and complaining has finally paid off, because tonight, you get your shot at our Tag Team Titles. But remember this, kids, when you pray for the rain, you must then deal with the mud.
Christopher Daniels says that reDRagon are just like every other member of this “entitlement generation”, you complained and you bitched and you moaned and you said you wanted the rematch tonight, today, this minute, this very second. Well gentlemen, tonight, you’ve got us…..right where WE want you. You saw what we did to win these titles, what you do think we will do to keep these titles?
We see the usual intro, then commentary welcomes us to the show. Commentary notes that Bobby Fish was attacked earlier today outside the Ted Reeve Arena.
The Addiction’s music hits and they make their way to the ring. Commentary notes that their match with reDRagon was scheduled to be this week’s main event.
Daniels grabs the mic and says that there is breaking news from the “World Tag Team Champions of the World.” In a shocking turn of events, Bobby Fish has been deemed medically unable to compete tonight and while that’s bad news for you fans, its really bad news for reDRagon, because their title rematch was set for tonight and our contracts state that we’re wrestling Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish, not Kyle O’Reilly and a suitable replacement. So, if they don’t come down here and wrestle the match tonight, they can go back into the title contention pool and wrestle teams like The Mulkeys & The Conquistadores until they get back into title contention. Basically, what I’m saying to you, reDRagon, is this: Come fight The Addiction, or forfeit your title rematch.
reDRagon’s music hits and Kyle O’Reilly makes his way to the ring, seeming that he will fight this match alone.
