We are back with a look at what happened at the end of last week’s show when Bully Ray came out to respond to LifeBlood and their comments.

We also saw what happened with Kelly Klein, Jenny Rose, and The Allure.

We take a look at Dalton Castle sending the Boys on their own.

We take a look at the Honor Rumble that was won by Kenny King.

Kenny King makes his way to the ring but he has a cane and is being led to the ring by Amy Rose.

Kenny King says he should be the happiest dude alive right now but he is not. He says that he will tell you why. He is one of the few people in wrestling who does what they say they will do. He vowed to be the first to start the Honor Rumble at one and win it. He wants to be addressed as Kenny Shawn Michaels King. The best part is that we were treated to something special at Supercard. Two men stood in this ring, Jushin Liger and the Great Muta. The tension was palpable. You did not know what would happen until Kenny King came in and threw them out of the ring. He says you never want to meet your heroes. He offered his hand to Great Muta for making his Madison Square Garden debut and he spit his red mist in his face. Kenny says that he needs emergency surgery and that is why he is not wrestling in Pittsburgh.

Kenny wants to talk about Matt Taven. Kenny says Matt Taven is his homey. He was proud of Matt Taven. One day they will have to sit like kings for the terms of your surrender. Until that day, rumble young man. Matt Taven is not his target. Kenny asks if the people think Jay Lethal is a great wrestler.

Kenny says Jay sucks. The only time he is a savage is when he cosplays Randy Poffo. Kenny says that when he can see again, he is putting both eyes on you because he will prove that he is the K-I-N-G and he will make Jay Lethal bend the knee.

We go to commercial.

We are back with a feature on Flip Gordon. He says during a match against Tracy Williams, he went for a drop kick and his knee gave out. He knew he had to keep going and his knee gave out again. He knew that he could not continue the match that night. You don’t know what is going on right away. If it is an ACL, it is a year. If it is an MCL, it is a few months. When he got the results, he knew his time frame. He was told he would come back in mid-April but he wanted to come back faster. He went through the physical therapy and his knee is healed.

Flip says he saw the people with opportunities for the title fall. He says he did not think Matt Taven would win the title. Now it is his turn for the Ring of Honor World Championship.
