Truth says that Matt is a fighting champion and he says that he wants all of the wrestlers in the back to listen up because he is throwing out an open challenge Proving Ground Match. If anyone in the back has the . . . guts, come on down.

Pepper Parks comes to the ring and Truth says that he knows him and then calls him ‘sugar’. Truth wonders why Pepper thinks he is in the same league as Matt Taven. Matt is his father’s pride and joy while Pepper is his daddy’s disappointment.

Pepper tells Truth that he has been around for a long time. He says that he will take his silly Willy Wonka hat and he is going to grab Paulie Shore’s hair and then . . .

What was Adam Cole thinking against Jay Briscoe and Kevin Steen?

Adam says that his integrity has not changed. He has sought to be the absolute best and when he lost the television title, it changed something in him. All that matters is wins and losses. He will face one of the best at Best in the World in Ring of Honor. He will walk out of Best in the World as a winner.

Kevin Steen will be facing Matt Hardy at Best in the World.

Kevin says that if he was told ten years ago that he would be talking about a match against Matt Hardy on iPPV, he would call them crazy. He watched Matt Hardy ten years ago making a name for himself in matches with tables, ladders, and chairs. When they get in the ring in Baltimore, he will make Matt wish he was coming off a ladder, going through a table, or being hit with a chair.

Kevin says that many are trying to cure cancer, but he will be the one to do it when he takes care of Hardy.

Next week will be a Road Rules episode.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Steve Corino makes his way to the ring with Jimmy Jacobs, Cliff Compton, and Rhett Titus.

Steve says for eleven long years, this company has made mistake after mistake. Guys have come and gone, but Nigel McGuinness made three of the worst mistakes you can ever make. First, he can forgive not giving Matt Hardy the World Title Match at Best in the World. Matt Hardy WILL BE the ROH World Champion. Nigel has the opportunity, but he took the coward’s way out. He sanctioned number one contender matches but he left out Cliff Compton, Rhett Titus, and Jimmy Jacobs.

He knows that Nigel was planning to put his boys on Best in the World in Cedric Alexander, Caprice Coleman, and Jay Lethal.

Steve says that he is lucky that he did he did not file a lawsuit at Border Wars. He could have gone to HR and Nigel would have been out of here. Nigel put his hands on Corino and then he does not give his men title match. Nigel should go down with the ship.

Nigel gets up and Steve asks Nigel if he is going to take his jacket off and maybe he will give Steve a Tower of London or a lariat, but if Nigel does it, he will sue him.

Steve reminds Cedric and Caprice that they lost to Rhett and Cliff already. Jay Lethal lost to Jimmy Jacobs already.
