Mark Haskins comes to the ring. He says he came to Ring of Honor because this is a place where wrestling matters. He did not bust his ass day in and day out for the last fifteen years to be labeled an entertainer. He is a wrestler. He says you can appreciate that because we love professional wrestling. He has a fight in his heart that just won’t quit. On Day One, he got to face Bandido and they left it in that ring. When they got to the back, the first person to meet them in the back was Juice Robinson. Juice say something in them and they were part of his vision. That was how Lifeblood was formed.

People like Tracy Williams, David Finlay, and Tenille Dashwood. She was ready to come back from injury and show the world what she was capable of. It was taken from her by a man, by the dirtiest lowlife piece of scum he has ever met in his life, Bully Ray.

Mark tells Bully to come to the ring and meet him face to face.

Mark says this is what he is fed up with. Everyone is fed up with you and he tells Bully to do everyone a favor and go away. He tells Bully to retire.

Bully says the people have forgotten. Bully says about a year ago, he tried to retire and he tried to do it in this very city, in this very arena, in this very ring. How can he try again when each of you begged him not to retire. Bully says this entire building was on its feet chanting ‘Thank You Bully’. Grown men, sitting in the front row, crying because he was going to retire. Bully says there was a little kid, smaller than Mark, who came into the ring. Bully hugged the kid and he says this is the last table he was going to break and it was for the child. They did it because they were suckers. They bought it. Bully says he was lying. He has been lying his entire career. Nobody, not you, not veterans around longer than him, have been able to stop him. What makes you think you are the guy who is finally going to shut him up?

Mark says he does not think, he knows. Why not do this right here, right now.

Shane Taylor’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Bully asks Mark what does he have.

Tracy Williams makes his way to the ring to stand by Mark’s side.

Tracy says he is so tired of talking. They came for a fight and this looks like a fair enough fight to them. Let’s do this right here, right now.

Bully tells the referee to get in the ring.

Match Number Three: Mark Haskins and Tracy Williams versus Bully Ray and Shane Taylor
