In the biggest event in Ring Of Honor history, the two leaders of Bullet Club went head to head to finally settle who is the true figurehead, but instead we ended up with more questions than answers.
Cody and Kenny Omega finally went one on one in front of the biggest crowd in Ring Of Honor history, however The Young Bucks may have made a bad situation worse. Following 25-plus minutes of brutal action which saw Brandi Rhodes carried out after being V-Triggered through a table, The Bucks appeared and made their choice, turning to superkick Cody. However, Cody ducked and they struck Omega which lead to Cody hitting Crossrhodes for the huge win.
Speaking of Cody and Kenny, their two respective bannermen went head to head as Kota Ibushi bested Hangman Page in an incredible contest, polishing his off with with a vicious Kamigoye for the win.
The Bullet Club also could not pick up the Ring Of Honor World Championship, as Dalton Castle bested Marty Scurll. Scurll used every trick in his villianous playbook, ranging from powder, to his umbrella to scissors given to him by NWA Champion Nick Aldis to expose a turnbuckle, but Castle rallied and hit a thunderous Bang-A-Rang for the three count to keep his gold.
Ring Of Honor crowned their first Women of Honor Champion as Sumie Sakai beat Kelly Klein with a vicious DDT to become their inaugural champion.
We also saw a new Ring Of Honor World Television Champion as Silas Young snuck by Kenny King in a brutal last man standing. King had the belt stolen from him as following a shooting star press to the outside through a table, King found himself unable to get up before the count of ten whereas a battered Young was able to pull himself up. It was then revealed that King had his legs zip-tied together by the Beer City Bruiser who was under the ring. King was saved any further damage as Austin Aries (who was on commentary for this match) made the save and made his intentions clear again that he wants to add the TV title to his collection.
SoCal Uncensored held on to their ROH Six-Man Tag Team Titles after beating The Young Bucks and Flip Gordon in a wild ladder match. After both teams overcame interference from The Kingdom, Matt Jackson had the belt in his grasp, however Christopher Daniels pushed the ladder over sending Matt crashing through a table and onto Vinny Marseglia, leaving ‘The Fallen Angel’ alone to capture the gold. Matt Taven dropped Daniels post match with a belt shot and the interfering trio stole the belts and ran off into the night.
ROH Tag Team Champions The Briscoes also retained their titles in a fantastic encounter against Jay Lethal and Hiroshi Tanahashi, in which Lethal succumbed to a Doomsday Device from the brothers to seal the victory.
ROH Enforcer Bully Ray shocked the Ring Of Honor audience by turning on Cheeseburger and seemingly all of the young stars in the locker room. When Cheeseburger’s partner Eli Isom was injured by their scheduled opponent The Dawgs, Cheeseburger pleaded with Bully to be his partner. Bully eventually accepted, but then choke slammed his partner and proclaimed that his entire generation are ‘selfish, spoiled and entitled’ and called out Will Ospreay, Flip Gordon and even Ricochet. He then threatened ROH owner Joe Koff and Flip Gordon to piledrive Cheeseburger and force the Louisana State Athletic Commission to shut the show down, showed off his WWE Hall Of Fame ring and then powerbombed Cheeseburger to the mat.
Punishment Martinez picked up a huge win, beat New Japan Pro Wrestling‘s and newly crowned RevPro British Champion Tomohiro Iishi in a hard-hitting contest, picking up the win by hitting Iishi with the South of Heaven chokeslam.
Finally, Chuckie T beat Jonathan Gresham in our opening contest when he counted a figure leg lock into an inside cradle.
