Back from commercial, the Decade is in the ring and BJ Whitmer as a mic. Whitmer says that over the last 6 weeks, all you people watching at home and everyone here at Ring of Honor, you’ve watched the maturation of a youngster, you’ve watched a youngster become a man before your very eyes. This youngster has shown more heart, more toughness, than anyone in that Ring of Honor lockerroom, or anybody sitting at ringside and that young man’s name is Colby Corino, Colby, come up here. (Crowd LOUDLY boos Whitmer). Colby, where I do start with you? (Shut the F up chants by the crowd). Colby, it wasn’t that long ago that you came into this very ring and you almost beat that big, goofy bastard, MOOSE. Then, just a couple weeks later, you almost beat the tag-team of War Machine by yourself. So first, Colby, I just wanna let you know how proud I am of you (“Whitmer sucks” chants by the crowd to the tune of “New Day Sucks”.) So Colby, there is something else I need to tell you. You see, when I brought you in as the Decade’s next young boy, I looked at you like a little brother, but now, Colby, now I look at you like you are my own son. And Colby, I hope that you view me like the father you’ve never, ever had. (Crowd chants for Corino.) So Colby, to show you how proud I am of you, I’ve got you a gift, tonight, because that’s what fathers do, they give their sons gifts. You ready, do you wanna know that gift is? Colby, I’ve booked you in a Gauntlet Match here tonight. Colby, its not just any Gauntlet Match, you see, I was at the last Ring of Honor try-out camp and I found 4 hungry, talented wrestlers that want what you got, they want a spot here in Ring of Honor, so are you ready for me to start this Gauntlet? (Colby says he’s ready.) Are you ready to seize the opportunity?
Whitmer brings out a referee and ring announcer Bobby Cruise to introduce the participants, yelling at Cruise to not look at Corino. Cruise introduces the 4 wrestlers facing Colby in the gauntlet at a combined 1800 pounds, Jaheim Ali, Wildman Kongo, The Beast Ortiz, The Punishment Martinez. The 4 big guys come out as Corino leaves commentary to stop this from happening to his son before it starts. Corino gets in the 4 wrestlers’ faces, then gets into the ring. Whitmer says to Corino that now he decides its time to step up, are you gonna do something? Whitmer continues to goad Corino as Corino removes his suit jacket and tie. Referees come out to try and keep Corino from Whitmer as Whitmer says that Corino thinks doing something right now is gonna make up for abandoning this kid. Tell me something, Steve, how long is it before you abandon that pretty, little wife and that baby son of yours? Corino has had enough and grabs Whitmer by the throat. Referees rush the ring, including match-maker Nigel McGuinness and Nigel keeps Corino back. Whitmer continues to dare Corino to hit him, be a man, you gonna let Nigel stop you? Corino yells at Nigel, while Nigel begins to yell at Whitmer for what he’s done as we go to commercial.
