Matt Taven vs BUSHI
- This starts off with a lock up but quickly moves to fast paced action as BUSHI flips over Taven and they both end up on the outside. Taven gets a good response in his hometown. This match is very fast with back and forth action, Taven is top talent in ROH but BUSHI is no slouch and often works very hard on these US tours. BUSHI pulls the ref in front of him to stop Taven running at him, then sprays black mist but Taven ducks. BUSHI misses with the mist and Matt Taven won with his finisher, the Climax. After the match, they shook hands but BUSHI kicked Taven in the nuts. Winner: Matt Taven.

The Bouncers vs Dalton Castle & Juice Robinson
- The Boys wheel both Juice and Dalton out on some soft of box with wheels, it looks great as they are both so flamboyant and both have capes with multi colours. The team of Dalton and Juice looks like it’s been a thing for years, it’s great. The Beer City Bruiser grabs Juice in a headlock early but Juice powers out with a shoulder tackle. One of the Boys steals a beer from the Bruiser and the Bruiser chases him very slowly. They did a spot where the huge Brian Malonas gets kicked unconscious and falls onto Dalton Castle.

- They begin with a lock up but Cobb backs Daniels up into the corner easily. Cobb is fantastic and has had some good matches where he can showcase his moves but this should be a match where he really shows how good he is. Daniels is one of the best in ROH and it’s great to see these two together. Daniels is struggling with the power and wrestling ability of the former olympian and current ROH TV Champ, Jeff Cobb. Cobb lands his delayed vertical sperplex for a one count, then a two count. Daniels comes back with a enziguri and an Arabian moonsault to the outside onto Cobb.
