ROH Tag Team champions ReDragon vs. Christopher Daniels and Kazarian

Tons of streamers for Bad Influence.

Kazarian tried to fight his way out but was caught in a guillotine choke when he went for a tag. Kazarian powered out with a suplex but Fish knocked Daniels off the apron before he could tag in.

Kazarian finally nailed a neckbreaker on Fish and it looked like he was going to make the tag but Kyle caught him. Kaz fought him off and Daniels tagged in with a flurry of hot offense including a feet first dropkick out of the ring on Fish. Daniels nailed a bodypress on Kyle and set him up on the top rope for a move. Kyle fought him off, then dove, but was caughr with a Uranage. Daniels went for the BME but Kyle rolled out of the way.

Kyle began beating the hell out of Daniels with kicks but was caught with a Dragon Screw Legwhip. Daniels missed an Arabian Press to the floor and Fish tackled him into a chair and guard rail in the corner. Kyle came off the apron with a sick looking knee on Daniels.

This left Kazarian in a two on one situation. He got O’Reilly and nailed him with a sick looking Flux Capacitor on Kyle but Fish pulled the referee out and then hid. The crowd chanted, “Buillsh**.” Kazarian was selling his bad elbow from the move. ReDragon killed him with a ton of offense but he kicked out. O’Reilly locked in a cross armbreaker. Fish tackled Daniels and kept him from interfering. Kazarian tried to fight but the pain was too much and he tapped.

Your winners and still ROH Tag Team champions, ReDragon!

Good match. Daniels and Kazarian were working hard and pulling out more than they were towards the end of their TNA run. ReDragon were really smooth and showed some of their prowess as a team. Good, athletic tag team wrestling here.

ROH champion Adam Cole vs. Michael Elgin

Elgin now has a short buzz cut.

Elgin was pissed and immediately began beating Cole down on the mat and the corner. Cole tried to fake him out but was hit with a shoulder tackle. They kept reversing waistlocks and Cole shoved him to the floor. Cole went for a pescado but Elgin walked away.

Elgin grabbed Cole, who slipped behind him and shoved Elgin into the guard rail. Cole grabbed a chair but Elgin stopped him and drilled him hard with a right hand. Cole went down. Elgin grabbed Cole and nailed a Oklahoma Stampede style powerslam onto the ROH entrance ramp. Ouch.

Cole came off the ropes but Elgin evaded him and kicked. Elgin went for a clothesline but Cole ducked and went for a superkick. Elgin ducked and referee Todd Sinclair looked like he was legitimately massacred. It was the best referee bump since I can remember.

Cole went to nail Elgin with the belt but Elgin nailed a spinning backfist and hit the powerbomb. That was a super close two count, to the point fans tossed streamers, then chanted, “We f***ed up!” Elgin and Cole battled to the top. Elgin was sent to the mat and nailed with a dropkick to the knee.

Cole locked on the figure four leglock on the ringpost. He returned to the ring and Elgin caught him with an inside cradle for a two count. Elgin locked him in a Crossface.

Cole caught him flush in the face with a superkick and went for the Canadian Destroyer off the ropes and nailed it. Elgin kicked up and Cole had this awesome look on his face as if to say, “Dear God, what do I have to do?” He went back for the Canadian Destroyer but Elgin rolled through and began powerbombing the holy hell out of Cole and scored the pin.

Your winner and new ROH champion, Michael Elgin!

The fans erupted and threw streamers into the ring, which made for a really nice visual. Cary Silkin entered the ring and raised the arm of the new champion, then hugged Elgin. In a first for ROH, they had a confetti machine blowing confetti. Adam Cole rolled out of the ring, mummifying himself with streamers and stumbled to the back. Elgin celebrated in the ring.

The PPV closed with a highlight reel of footage.

If you were wondering, no return date was announced.

Great main event.

Overall, a very well paced show with lots of different styles of matches and a lot of hard working performers up and down the card.
