ROH World Champion Jay Lethal came to the ring to talk about his Iron Man match with Jonathan Gresham from last week. After listing some of the classic matches he’s had in ROH against opponents like Roderick Strong, Samoa Joe, and AJ Styles, he called the match with Gresham his favorite.
Lethal then went on to issue a “Lethal Challenge” to any wrestler in the world.
Will Ospreay appeared on the video screen and accepted the challenge for a World title match in Las Vegas at Death Before Dishonor on September 28.
A SoCal Uncensored promo aired. They talked about how they will beat The Briscoes & Punishment Martinez in tonight’s six-man tag team main event.
Brandi Rhodes joined Caprice Coleman and Ian Riccaboni to call the next match.
Women of Honor Champion Sumie Sakai defeated Tasha Steelz in a non-title proving ground match
Sakai put a hurting on Steelz in the opening sequence, but Steelz landed a springboard bulldog for a two count. She went for the Boricua Butterfly, but Sakai countered into her Smashmouth finisher for the three count.
Backstage, the Bullet Club talked trash about the other factions in New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Riccaboni got in the ring with Sakai and stated that the Women of Honor Championship is now known as the Women of Honor World Championship. Sakai took the microphone, said ROH is her home, and then challenged Tenille Dashwood to a match. Dashwood came out and accepted. She said the title match will be at Death Before Dishonor.
Riccaboni stayed in the ring to speak with Gresham. Before Gresham could finish, Bully Ray came to ringside. Ray claimed he single-handedly sold out Madison Square Garden and then called Gresham a jobber. Gresham took the mic and challenged Ray to a wrestling match, not a fight. It was neither as Ray immediately kicked Gresham low and the referee disqualified Ray.
Ray went for his chain, but Flip Gordon came out to make the save for Gresham. However, he ran into a big boot and looked to be in trouble too. Then Lethal came to the ring to make the save for both men. He fired up on Ray until Silas Young came out and landed Misery on Lethal.
Backstage, Lethal and Gresham went off on Ray and Young and challenged the two to a tag match on ROH TV next week.
SoCal Uncensored (Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian & Scorpio Sky) defeated The Briscoes & Punishment Martinez
Chris Sabin was on commentary to scout Martinez for their upcoming ROH TV Championship match.
SoCal Uncensored jumped their opponents and turned this into a brawl at the beginning. The Briscoes took over on Daniels and used quick tags to isolate him. Martinez and The Briscoes were working well together until Daniels was able to land a Blue Thunder Bomb and tag in Sky.
Wheel kicks and cutters galore sparked SCU, but Sky walked into a Spicolli driver from Mark Briscoe and a Silencer from Martinez.
Kazarian took the tag from Sky and landed a DDT on Mark Briscoe. The match broke down as everyone landed big moves. Mark Briscoe got a chair and wanted to hit Kazarian with it but accidentally nailed referee Paul Turner. That allowed Martinez to hit Kazarian with the chair. The Briscoes nailed everyone with chairs -- and that caused Sabin to head to the ring to attack Martinez. The two of them brawled to the back, and Sabin used a shoe to hit him.
In the ring, Daniels and Kazarian finished the match with the Best Meltzer Ever on Mark Briscoe to get the win.
