Six Man Mayhem: QT Marshall vs Silas Young vs Mike Sydal vs Adam Page vs ACH vs Tadarius Thomas

Matt Taven won the Top Prospect Tournament to earn a TV Title shot at Adam Cole later on tonight, and this match is made up of six of the seven other men who participated in the tournament. Antonio Thomas is the one . Page and ACH start us off and got back and forth, then Young and Thomas come in and trade shots until Young backdrops him to the floor. Sydal comes in and drills Young with a kick to the side of the head that knocks him to the floor, but Marshall comes in and blindsides Sydal before knocking Page off the apron. ACH catches Marshall with a flying headscissors, then all the other participants take turns beating Marshall up until Page clotheslines him to the floor. Young goes after Page and dumps him out to the apron, and Page comes off the apron with a shooting star press to Thomas on the floor. Barrister RD Evans grabs ACH's ankle from the floor to stop him from hitting a dive on Marshall, so Thomas takes his place and hits a Space Flying Tiger Drop. Sydal wipes everyone else out with a moonsault to the floor except for ACH, who follows him out and nails the five guys with a dive. RD Evans climbs up the corner for some reason, so Young goes up and suplexes him to the floor where they take everyone out again. Wow, this is really old school ROH! The fans chant "this is awesome" as ACH hits a Stunner on Marshall and then tries a springboard move, Marshall trips him up by kicking the ropes and then kicks Page's hand (which is in a cast) and plants him with an Alabama Slam. Sydal hits Thomas with a flying neckbreaker and a standing shooting star press for 2, then tries a flying crossbody on Young, but Young rolls through, powers Sydal into a Finlay Roll and tries the headstand suplex. Sydal moves and ACH pops Young over into a short fisherman's buster for the win.

Winner: ACH

Hell of an opener! This was so old school in terms of the type of action we saw out there and gave ACH a strong first win after signing his ROH deal.

Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs vs Cedric Alexander & Caprice Coleman

Coleman and Alexander don't even wait for the bell, and go right after SCUM as soon as they get in the ring. Corino and Alexander fight outside and Coleman leaps over the ropes to hit a springboard moonsault to Corino, then Alexander slides into the ring and takes both of SCUM out with a dive. C&C bring Jacobs inside the ring and take over with some fancy double teaming, then Corino comes in and has the same luck, getting laid out with a Hart Attack and then a pair of suplex/slingshot senton combos. Coleman charges Corino in the corner and runs into his boot, Jacobs tags in and immediately finds himself on the receiving end of another beating, getting slingshot into a forearm by Alexander, who then slingshots in and nails Jacobs with a twisting elbow. Corino cheapshots Coleman from outside the ring and comes in for a double team back elbow with Jacobs. Coleman is in the wrong part of town as SCUM work him over, hitting a double necktie beckbreaker and baiting Alexdander into the ring so they can get more free shots in on Coleman. Corino with a Saito suplex, Coleman surprises him with a Silver Slice and makes the tag to Alexander. Alexander goes to town on Jacobs with running forearms and a diving kick, followed by the IED and a back suplex into a backbreaker. That looked really nasty, and so did what happened right after when Corino came in and speared him shoulder first into the ringpost. Coleman comes in to help and winds up in the wrong part of town, Jacobs tried coming off the second rope with something but Coleman low blows him on the way down and C&C hit a series of suplexes on both Corino and Jacobs. Jacobs and Coleman wind up out on the apron, Jacobs spears Coleman as Corino lariats Alexander, SCUM hit an assisted Contra Code and Corino hits the sliding lariat, but only get 2. Alexander catches Jacobs coming off the ropes again and hits a facebuster, Coleman hits Jacobs with a second rope legdrop, then they dump Corino to the floor and go for Overtime, but Corino superkicks Coleman and Jacobs gets the knees up when Alexander comes off the top with a frogsplash. Corino picks Alexander up and Jacobs comes off the ropes with a spike cradle piledriver, and Alexander is DEAD as Jacobs covers for the win.

Winners: Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs

That is a hell of a devastating looking finish. Coleman and Alexander looked good, but they're in the same spot they were when they got here, so there wasn't a whole lot of suspense.

No Holds Barred Streetfight: BJ Whitmer vs Charlie Haas

This match is a continuation of the WGTT-All Night Express feud from last year that culminated in Haas nearly breaking BJ's neck with a suplex through a table, and then escalated as a result of an incident at a car dealership. Haas waits for Whitmer in the aisle and they start fighting in the entryway, then brawl down to ringside where Whitmer rams Haas into the barricades. Whitmer sends Haas inside and brings in a trash can that he puts over Haas' head, then big boots Haas and stomps on Haas' face through the can. Whitmer goes under the ring for a stepladder and rams it into Haas' ribs, then whips him into the corner and skeeballs the ladder into...well, Haas' skeeballs. Just to up the ante even more, Whitmer then takes a chair and slams it into the bottom of the ladder, ramming it into Haas' skeeballs one more time. Haas tries to escape to the floor, but Whitmer won't let up as he follows Haas outside, sets up a table between the ring and barricade, then goes after Haas. Haas had enough time to recover that he's able to Tully Whitmer into the barricade, smash a chair into his head, and back suplex him onto the barricade. Haas then sends Whitmer back inside and repeatedly smashes the ladder down onto him. Haas sets up the ladder in the corner, and he goes all Stone Cold when it falls back down nad he has trouble getting it to stay there. Eventually he manages to get the ladder to stay on the top turnbuckle facing into the ring and whips Whitmer face first into it. Haas grabs a piece of wood and prepares to bash Whitmer in the head with it, but the kid from the wrestling school that Haas beat up comes down and distracts Haas long enough for Whitmer to get a piece of wood of his own and trade shots with Haas. Haas gets the advantage and suplexes Whitmer over the top rope and through the table Whitmer set up earlier, then brings him back inside and covers for 2. HJaas is pissed off now, so he puts the ladder over Whitmer and nails him with a chair about fifteen times. Haas finally stops and covers, but BJ kicks out at 2. Haas sets up a chair in between the top and middle rope and rams Whitmer headfist into it, then pulls a table out from under the ring and sets it up in the middle of the ring. Haas puts Whitmer on the top rope to try for a repeat of Final Battle, and while Whitmer doesn't go through the table headfirst, Whitmer sure does get suplexed through the table. Haas covers and Whitmer somehow kicks out at 2, so Haas gets another couple of chairs and uses them to set up a "ladder table" in the corner, and tries to hit the Hacker Slam onto the ladder. Whitmer slips out the back and suplexes Haas through the ladder, Whitmer covers and Haas kicks out at 2, so Whitmer starts pummeling Haas with kneestrikes to the head and the referee quickly stops the match.

Winner: BJ Whitmer

Whitmer keeps ramming kneestrikes to Haas' head until the referee tells him to stop because he won the match, but Whitmer has now earned his biggest singles win yet since returning to ROH last year. HELL of a fight, just a good, old fashioned brawl between two guys who want to hurt each other. Loved it, loved it, loved it.

The Forever Hooligans return to ROH on Page 2!
