2 of 3

ROH Six-Man Tag Team Championship Match
The Briscoes and Bully Ray (c) vs Roppongi Vice and Hirooki Goto

Result: Bully Ray and the Briscoes defeat Hirooki Goto and Roppongi Vice.

Bully Ray entered through the crowd as ECW chants echoed through the Hammerstein Ballroom. The ECW legend cut a promo from the balcony and asked his opponents “Do you know where you are!? You’re in New York City, baby! And you’re gonna die,” before adding the “bad news” of the a–kicking of a lifetime” and the “good news” of “we know what you (the fans) wanna see and we’re gonna give it to you! No disqualifications!”

Just like that, it’s a no-DQ title match. Interestingly enough this is the second time Roppongi Vice get a “surprise” going into a title match. Last time it was the Hardy Boys, who won the tag titles from the Young Bucks in an impromptu title match with subsequently turned their title match at the anniversary show into a triple threat.

Interesting spot in the match, fighting on the outside led to Bully Ray jumping from the top rope into the ring onto all three opponents. Goto and Bully spent a lot of time brawling on the outside before a nice little exchange in the middle of the ring. Then a Double Doomsday Device, a “wazzup” and a powerbomb through the table led to the 3D and the pinfall.

ROH World Television Championship Match
Marty Scurll (c) vs Matt Sydal

Result: Marty Scurll defeats Matt Sydal.

The crowd was very into this match, while Sydal had some support the Villain was over in the Big Apple.  The start saw both men exchanging back-and-forth constantly reversing each other. The ROH World TV Champ kept taunting both Sydal and the crowd by flapping his arms, signaling the chicken wing.

Scurll was incredibly over but he is the Villain after all and following one big pop, he flipped off the crowd to remind them. The Manhattan crowd did not mind as chants imitating his music continued to echo through the Hammerstein Ballroom.

According to the broadcast, the ROH World TV title has changed hands three times in New York City. However, tonight would not be the fourth. The Villain would add another awesome title defense to his resume after reversing an Air-Sydal into his cross-face chicken wing. Sydal would quickly submit after Scurll applied his signature submission.

ROH World Tag Team Championship Match
The Young Bucks (c) vs. Tetsuya Naito & BUSHI

Results: The Young Bucks defeat Tetsuya Naito & Bushi.

Last time the Young Bucks defended the ROH Tag Team Championships in New York City they lost the belts to Broken Matt Hardy and Brother Nero. This time the Bucks of Youth once again entered the Hammerstein Ballroom as the champs.  This time they imitated the IWGP Intercontinental Champion’s disrespect for the belt during their entrance.

Naito and the Young Bucks were completely feeding off of the crowd throughout the match. The Young Bucks continued to display that they are one of, if not the very best tag team in the business. With over a decade as a duo, they truly looked like the veterans against the duo of Bushi and the IWGP Intercontinental Champion.

One great moment in the match saw  Bushi mist Matt, which led to a superkick party that included his brother and the referee. Regardless the Elite retain their titles.

NJPW announced a new IWGP United States Championship that will debut at their Long Beach show. NJPW also announced Jay Lethal as the first wrestler in the tournament.
