EVIL and Ray Rowe were going to start but EVIL tagged out to Gresham.  SANADA tagged in and Gresham nailed a nice rana off the ropes and a dropkick on him.   Gresham teased a dive but was tripped up by EVIL.  EVIL tied up Sabin and Gresham on the mat and then dropkicked them both.  He and EVIL worked over Sabin, who mounted a comeback with a double clothesline.

EVIL nailed a clothesline and tagged out to Hanson, who wiped out Gresham and Sabin with clotheslined in the corner.  EVIL got involved but Hanson nailed a cartwheel to avoid him and drilled a clothesline.  Hanson nailed the charging clotheslines on SANADA and EVIL over and over.   He whipped EVIL into SANADA and clotheslined them both.  Rowe picked up Hanson and drilled him into the LIJ members.

Hanson went to the top but Sabin went Rowe into him.  Gresham nailed a top rope rana.  Sabin and Gresham nailed a series of kicks.  Rowe fought off Sabin and Gresham and nailed them with a suplex at the same time.  SANADA hit a missile dropkick on Rowe.  LIJ got involved.  EVIL put a chair around Hanson's head and nailed it with another.  The chair went flying and almost clobbered referee Tiger Hatori.

They went into a series of dives, culminating with EVIL hitting a big dive.  Hanson went to the top and came off on everyone on the floor.

Sabin set up for another dive but was caught by Rowe with a big knee strike.  Hanson and Rowe laid waste to Sabin.  Hanson hit a tope suicida to the floor, wiping everyone out as Rowe scored the pin.

The crowd chanted "That was awesome" after and they were right.   They showed each other respect after.  

Best thing on the show so far!

Punishment Martinez hit the ring and attacked Ospreay after.  Really?  This seemed so out of place for this moment.  White made the save and hit some chops but was laid out as well.  I can't begin to say how much I hated that.  

ROH Six Man Tag Team champions Bully Ray & The Briscoes vs. NEVER Openweight champion Hirooki Goto & Roppongi Vice.

Bully Ray came out through the crowd.  The crowd chanted "ECW" for that.   Bully had a mic and said, "Do you know where you are?  You're in NYC baby.  You're gonna die!"  Bully said he had good news and bad news.  He said the bad news is the three of them are going to get the ass kicking off a lifetime.  He said that the good news is they know what the people want to see and announced it was a no DQ match.  The place popped for that.

The Briscoes nailed dives to the outside on Team New Japan as Bully made his way to ring.  Mark nailed a suplex on Berretta on the floor.  Everyone brawled.  RPV and Goto were brought into the ring, where Bully nailed a clothesline off the top.  He chopped away at Goto.  Chairs were brought into the equation as Beretta and Briscoe launched them at each other.

Roppongi Vice cut off Mark Briscoe and nailed a series of double team maneuvers.    Goto and Vice worked over Mark for a long time.  Jay finally tagged in and Vice and The Briscoes fought back and forth.  Vice charged at Jay but he fliung a chair at them.  Mark hit the Cactus elbow onto Berreta.  Bully drilled Goto with a series of strikes but Goto fought back and nailed a DVDR for a two count.

Jay hit the ring with a chair but Goto ducked.  Jay nailed him with a clothesline.  Vice caught him with a double knee strike.  Goto came off the apron with a knee to Bully.  All sorts of chaotic action.  They built to a double Doomsday Device on Vice.  They did the Wassup spot with Mark Briscoe dropping an elbow and then Bully called for tables.

They set a table up.  Beretta got backdropped HIGH in the air.  Bubba nailed a powerbomb though a table.  The Briscoes set him  up for a 3D and scored the pin.
