Thanks to rajah.com reader Joe Kazmer for sending this in:
Ring of Honor at Stage AE in Pittsburgh, PA on October 13 was completely
sold out. There were massive autograph lines before the show, and of course,
tons of Bullet Club and Kenny Omega shirts on those in attendance.
Coast to Coast defeated One Mean Team
The show opened with Mark Briscoe against Hiromu Takahashi. Unfortunately,
the match only went for a couple of minutes. Takahashi was in control in the
corner throwing some kicks, when Briscoe rolled out of the ring. The referee
checked on him, and called off the match, declaring Takahashi the winner. At
the time, it wasn't clear what the injury was, but now we know it was a
The Best Friends (Chuckie T. and Beretta) vs. The Addiction (Daniels and
Daniels and Kazarian came out, dressed in their street clothes, and declared
they weren't going to wrestle tonight. The Dawgs (Rhett Titus and WIll
Ferrara) came out to replace them. Beretta eventually pinned Titus after they
hit their tag combo finisher.
Jay Lethal vs. Jay White:
This match started slowly, and ended up going fairly long, getting hotter and
hotter by the end. Lethal pinned White after a Lethal Injection. They both
sold heavily after the match, and shook each other's hands.
ROH World Tag Team Title Match- Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin and Alex
Shelley) vs. The Kingdom (Vinny Marseglia and TK O'Ryan) vs. The Young Bucks
(Matt and Nick Jackson):
The crowd went nuts for the Young Bucks. After lots of high flying, and about
a dozen superkicks, Chris Sabin pinned Matt Jackson with a cradle in a
surprise finish to retain the titles.
Britt Baker/Sumie Sakai/Faye Jackson vs. Mandy Leon/Jenny Rose/Deonna
Purrazzo submitted Jackson with an armbar.
Proving Ground Instant Reward for ROH World TV Championship- Punishment
Martinez vs. Adam Page vs. Josh Woods vs. Matt Taven vs. Kushida vs. Kenny
Kenny King pinned Josh Woods after two not-so-smooth Royal Flushes.
Non-title match- IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions the Killer Elite Squad
(Vance Archer and Davey Boy Smith Jr.) vs. War Machine (Ray Rowe and Hanson):
Rowe pinned Archer after War Machine hit a double team backbreaker/kneedrop
from the top rope.
Bully Ray came out and gave an emotional speech saying he has a head injury
and doesn't know if he'll ever wrestle again, but he wanted to see the
Pittsburgh crowd one more time if that was the case.
Minoru Suzuki vs. Silas Young (with Beer City Bruiser):
Suzuki got a huge reaction, and had a fun match with Young. Eventually, Davey
Boy Smith Jr. came out, and the referee was bumped. Smith Jr. interfered,
Suzuki hit Young with a chair, and then finished him off with a Gotch
piledriver to get the pinfall.
ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championship match- Bullet Club (Cody, Marty
Scrull, and Kenny Omega) vs. Chaos (Yoshi-Hashi, Will Ospreay, and Toru
Invoking Freebird, rather, Bullet Club rules before the match, Marty Scrull
made this a Six Man Tag Team Title match. The match went 20 minutes, and had
the crowd going absolutely nuts. They were definitely there to see the Bullet
Club, and in particular, Kenny Omega. The rest of the Bullet Club (Young
Bucks and Page) ran in towards the end of the match, which resulted in Scrull
running Yano into all ten boots of the Bullet Club in the corner. Shortly
after, he submitted Yano with the chicken wing.
Post-match, basically everyone in the venue stayed to listen to Cody and
Kenny Omega's promos. They taunted WWE and then thanked a very happy crowd to
end the night.
