We’re live from Missisauga, Ontario, Canada and the iPPV is 100% *PERFECT* as Kevin Kelly & Nigel McGuinness welcome to Glory By Honor XI! The crowd is going nuts as Kevin and Nigel run down the top matches, then send us to the ring for our opening match…
Bravado Brothers vs Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander
The Bravados are decked out in the stars & stripes to make friends with the Ontario fans. Harlem and Cedric start us off, but Lancelot sneaks in and blindsides Cedric from behind, stunning him so Harlem can hit a leg lariat for 2. Cedric catches Harlem with a flying headscissors and tags in Coleman, who hits a slingshot legdrop followed by a Lionsault from Cedric for 2. Double team from Coleman & Alexander gets 2, but Lancelot distracts Alexander from the outside so Harlem can get a Bret Hart side backbreaker for a quick 2. Lancelot tags in and the Bravados hit a double back elbow and double elbowdrop for 2. Alexander is in trouble now and gets worn down by a bodyscissors from Harlem. Harlem with a back suplex for 2, then dumps Alexander to the floor where Lancelot slams him and then rolls him back inside so Harlem can get 2. Lancelot tags in and gets a high surfboard, then rolls back to a seated position and gets a double grapevine with a chinlock that looks really, really painful. Cedric manages to fight his way through both Bravados and make the hot tag to Coleman, who comes in and cleans house on both Bravados, taking them out with a double dropkick. Coleman blocks a tornado DDT and then hits the rolling Northern Lights suplexes, making the third one a double on both Bravados. Crowd liked that one, as well as Alexander wiping Lancelot out with a dive to the floor. Harlem suddenly runs across the apron and pops off the corner with a climbing moonsault that takes out both Alexander and Lancelot. Finally, Coleman hits a slingshot dive that takes EVERYONE out, and they’re all down on the floor. Coleman rolls Harlem back inside and gets 2, but misses a dropkick in the corner and Harlem drills Coleman with an Unprettier for 2. Lancelot with a kitchen sink and a running kneestrike in the corner, then a torture rack into a running neckbreaker for 2. Lancelot peppers Coleman with short clotheslines to the front and back, followed by a running lariat for 2. Coleman catches Lancelot unawares with a springboard crossbody and tags out to Alexander, who catches Lancelot with a springboard enziguiri for 2. Coleman and Alexander hit a double stomp/assisted backbreaker, but Lancelot kicks out on a very close 2, then boots Coleman off the apron before hitting a belly to belly on Alexander and the old Quebecers finish for 2. Harlem with a KILLER bicycle kick on Alexander, then they get the double team enziguiri and German suplex from Lancelot gets 2 on Alexander. Lancelot has blood running out of his nose as he slaps Alexander around, but Coleman pulls down the top rope and Lancelot dumps himself to the floor while Coleman and Alexander take Harlem out with Total Elimination. Coleman with a standing Frankensteiner off the top on Lancelot, then Alexander comes three quarters of the way across the ring with a frogsplash for the win.
Winners: Cedric Alexander & Caprice Coleman
AWESOME opener, the crowd was really into this and it definitely got the show off to the good start. And by the way, the iPPV stream is still perfect, I’ve had zero trouble so far.
We see a video package of the interview segment from ROH TV where Mike Mondo kissed Maria Kanellis, which brings us to our next match…
Mike Mondo vs Mike Bennett
Bennett slaps Mondo in the face, and Mondo responds by kicking the crap out of him. Maria pops up on the apron to try and distract Mondo, but Mondo slips under the bottom rope and sneaks under the ring. Bennett comes out after him, but Mondo sneaks out behind Bennett and lays him out with a clothesline before chasing Maria around ringside again. Mondo gives that up and charges down the apron to dive onto Bennett, but Bennett catches him and counters to a powerslam on the floor. Ouch. Bennett keeps up the pressure by whipping Mondo into the guardrail, then charges across ringside and spears Mondo right onto the hard floor. They go back inside and exchange punches on the top rope, Mondo headbutts Bennett into the ring, but Bennett charges back with a right hand that sends Mondo tumbling off the corner and to the floor where he apparently hurt his ankle on the way down. Bennett goes after Mondo and rams him into the barricade, but Mondo returns the favor and then does it again. Mondo charges Bennett, who picks him up and hits a sick spinebuster onto the ring apron. Back inside they go, as Bennett tries a Cobra Clutch but gets hiptossed across the ring. Both men hit the ropes and connect with simultaneous crossbody blocks, and both roll out to the floor. They trade punches on the floor and fight up the aisle toward the entranceway, but Mondo stumbles on the bad ankle and Bennett tries a piledriver on the floor. Mondo blocks that and backdrops Bennett onto the concrete floor and rams him back and forth between the barricades. Mondo hops into the ring and stops the referee from counting Bennett out, then goes back out after Bennett and atomic drops him onto the barricade so hard the piece of barricade tips over and Bennett goes splat on the floor. Mondo suddenly climbs up on top of the entranceway and dives onto Bennett. The man is insane. Both men are literally crawling back down the aisle to get back in the ring before they get counted out as the crowd starts a “this is awesome” chant. Mondo rolls Bennett into the ring because he wants to beat him instead of taking a countout, but Maria jumps back on the apron to beg the referee to stop the match. Maria suddenly starts coming onto Mondo with some kind of stripper dance, but it’s another ploy. Bennett comes from behind, Mondo sees him coming and catches him with an O’Connor Roll, but Bennett kicks out and sends Mondo into a slap from Maria that stuns him long enough for Bennett to hit a TKO for the win.
Winner: Mike Bennett
This match was awesome, and Mondo is out of his mind for doing that dive off the entranceway. These guys worked their asses off and again, the crowd was loving it. The iPPV stream is still working fine!
Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team jump Rhett Titus and BJ Whitmer on their way to the ring for the next match, leading to a brawl on the floor between the two teams. WGTT bring Whitmer in the ring and beat him down before going for their finish, but Titus comes in to make the save, booting Benjamin in the face and dumping Haas out to the floor where Whitmer takes him out with a dive. Now that we’re down to two guys in the ring the referee finally rings the bell to start…
Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team vs Rhett Titus & BJ Whitmer
Titus and Benjamin go at it in the ring, but Haas takes Whitmer out on the floor and Titus is in a 2-on-1 situation that ends with him getting dumped to the apron and superkicked in the face by Benjamin. Titus is in the wrong part of town, and takes a shellacking at the hands of WGTT. Benjamin slams Titus across the knee of Haas, who covers Titus for several two counts before hitting the chinlock. Titus fights his way out and leaps across the ring for a hot tag, but Haas catches him in a waistlock and hits a spinebuster for 2. Benjamin tags in and puts Titus on top, Titus shoves him off so Benjamin goes for his leaping suplex, but Titus shoves him off again and wipes him out with a flying bodypress, and both men are down in the middle of the ring. They trade punches as they get back to their feet, then wipe each other out again with a double clothesline. Both men make tags, but Whitmer comes in and cleans house on both of WGTT, taking Benjamin out and getting Haas in a northern lights suplex for 2, followed by an exploder suplex for another 2. Benjamin comes in but gets dumped right back out to the floor, then Haas and Whitmer…uh, express their appreciation for each other while trading haymakers and big boots, then trade German suplexes until Haas hits the Hacker Slam for 2. Titus comes back in and they double team Haas, with Titus hitting an IED and then going after Benjamin on the floor while Whitmer hits a Roll of the Dice on Haas for 2. Benjamin comes into the ring and goes at it with Whitmer, and they block each other’s suplexes until Titus drills Benjamin square in the face with a dropkick. Titus goes to the top rope, but Haas whips Whitmer into the corner to crotch Titus and then hit their finish on Whitmer for the win.
Winners: Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team
This was a real war, and was also far and away Whitmer’s best match since returning to the ring. He looked like a monster as he went at it with Haas & Benjamin, but I get the feeling like this is the end of the Titus-WGTT feud.
door after Steen while Cary Silkin and other ROH officials tended to Cornette. Kevin informs us that Cornette is still not back at work after being attacked by Lethal, then says that Kevin Steen will indeed be defending the ROH World Title tonight despite his threats to the contrary.
As for Lethal, he comes out before the match to tell us that he had a meeting with Joe Koff where Koff wanted to sweep the incident with his mother under the rug. Lethal says Steen can kiss his ass, but he put Cornette out and sees that nobody seems too upset about that. But as for the matters at hand, ROH told him he was too nice and needed a killer instinct, so he tells ROH that they can kiss his ass too. He’d say the same to his opponent tonight, but he has a lot of respect for Davey Richards. Unfortunately, he’s got a lot of anger built up in him because of the events of the last week, so Davey’s just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Jay Lethal vs Davey Richards
Just a little bit of background: Lethal challenged Davey for the ROH World Title twice earlier this year and lost both times. The Code of Honor is followed and the bell rings to start the match, as they tie up and go to the corner where Lethal shoves Davey on the break. Davey shoves him back, so Lethal slaps Davey down on his ass. Davey looks stunned, then gets his “okay, if that’s the way he wants it” look as they get back to their feet and Lethal ducks under on Davey and goes to a waistlock. Davey snapmares Lethal out of the hold, but Lethal immediately switches to a hammerlock. Davey hits the ropes and takes Lethal down with a shoulderblock, then gets an O’Connor Roll for 2 and catches Lethal on the kickout in a surfboard. Davey turns him into a cradle for 2, but Lethal kicks out and now gets Davey in a surfboard. Davey escapes and counters Lethal to an Indian deathlock, and Lethal quickly goes to the ropes for the break and we’re back at a stalemate. Lethal slaps Davey in the face again, and Davey shoves Lethal three times, Lethal goes for a right hand but Davey blocks and knocks Lethal’s wind out with a spinkick to the chest. Lethal immediately returns fire and hiptosses Davey before cartwheeling into a basement dropkick for 2. Lethal whips Davey across the ring and gets a running shoulderblock to the midsection for 2. Davey doesn’t remain at a disadvantage for long, turning Lethal to his belly with a hammerlock and catching the other arm for the old Nigel McGuinness bridging double armbar. Davey with a kick to the ribs and a kneedrop, but Lethal with a shot that knocks Davey back on his rear. Davey and Lethal trade blows in the middle of the ring, but Lethal takes Davey down with a chop for 2, then goes to a headscissors. Davey rolls to his base and pops his head out of the hold, then gets Lethal in another variation of the Indian deathlock. Davey dropkicks Lethal out to the apron, then runs across the apron with a boot to Lethal’s chest that looks like it could stop his heart. Lethal fires back with some punches, but Davey shuts him down with a hard shot and whips him into the barricade, then charges with a boot to the face. Lethal crawls over to the corner of the guardrail, and Davey charges in with the Ole Kick. I know Lethal’s seen that one before. Davey rolls Lethal back inside and comes off the top with a missile dropkick for 2, then a hard snap suplex gets another 2. Davey goes to a headscissors, rolls Lethal to his belly, and repeatedly drives Lethal’s face into the mat with his hips. Davey hits a lariat and doesn’t quite get all of it, but Lethal rolls out to the apron to catch a break. Davey drags him back inside and goes back to the chinlock, but Lethal gets free and dumps Davey out to the apron, then springboards off the corner and dropkicks Davey out to the floor and wipes him out with a dive through the ropes. Lethal goes for the Lethal Injection on the apron, Dave blocks and connects with a leaping enziguiri, but Lethal dodges another charging kick across the apron and pops up to hit the Lethal Injection on the apron. They take a long count before rolling back inside to go face to face in the middle of the ring. They trade right hands in the middle of the ring, Lethal hits the ropes and Davey pops him into the Alarm Clock, Lethal connects with a big boot, Davey takes his head off with a lariat, but Lethal hits the Lethal Combination and gets Davey in a Koji Clutch. Davey makes the ropes and blocks a Dragon suplex, then hits a German suplex that Lethal no-sells, so Davey kicks his head off and hits another lariat for 2. The crowd is cheering for Davey as he hits a charging forearm in the corner, but Lethal pops Davey up and into a facebuster for 2. Lethal goes to the top rope, Davey nails him and tries a superplex, they trade punches, Davey connects with a flurry of headbutts and a superplex, then rolls through but Lethal gets a small package for 2. Davey maintains the grip and gets a Flatliner, a knockout kick, and a brainbuster for 2. Davey immediately goes to the top rope and comes off with a double stomp for 2, then goes to the anklelock. Davey has Lethal right in the middle of the ring, Lethal kicks him off but Davey comes off the ropes with a kick to the chest and covers for 1. Lethal with a pair of superkicks for a very close 2, and Davey rolls out to the apron. Oh, I do not want to know what they’re doing out there, especially that close to the timekeeper’s table. Lethal climbs the corner and drags Davey up with him, and they trade punches on the top rope. Lethal tries a sunset flip onto the table, Davey holds on and punches Lethal in the face, so Lethal rolls into the ring and drills Richards with a right hand that knocks him backward onto the table…which doesn’t break as Davey hits with a thud and rolls out to the floor. The referee starts the count, but Davey somehow beats the count at 19, so Lethal comes off the top rope with Hail to the King…for 2! Lethal with the Dragon suplex for another 2 as Davey refuses to die. Lethal pulls off his elbowpad and goes for the Lethal Injection again, but Davey swats him away and gets the anklelock. Lethal goes for the ropes, but Davey pulls him back to the middle of the ring. Lethal rolls through and gets his weird Condo Clutch submission, Davey reverses to one of his own, Lethal rolls through to send Davey into the corner and superkicks him in the back of the head for 2, then goes back to the Koji Clutch. The referee checks the arm three times and calls for the bell.
Winner: Jay Lethal
This match was off the charts, undoubtedly a MOTYC as Lethal finally gets a win over Davey Richards. The crowd starts a “that was awesome” chant at the unbelievable war we just saw. Eddie Edwards comes in to check on Davey, and Davey shoves him away until he realizes who it is, then gets to his feet and raises Lethal’s hand.
Roderick Strong comes out for his next match in street clothes and says it’s BS that he’s on the first match back from intermission, especially against a guy like Tadarius Thomas who hasn’t beaten anyone. As of now he’s not just on strike, he’s quitting the House of Truth and he’s going to watch Michael Elgin fail to win the ROH World Title. Strong heads to the back and the referee starts a count, but Truth Martini runs back out with Rhino, who will now (despite not looking too thrilled about it) take the place of Strong in our next match…
Rhino vs Tadarius Thomas
Thomas is like half the size of Rhino, but he doesn’t back down and goes right into a tie up with Rhino, cartwheeling away from Rhino’s grasp. Rhino sends Truth Martini to the back to “get his stuff” as Thomas unloads with some quick punches and sweeps Rhino’s legs out from under him. Rhino goes out to the floor as Truth Martini comes back to ringside with a big red duffelbag. Rhino picks Thomas up and hits a TKO for 2, then Truth Martini tosses him a roll of tape that he uses to tape up his wrists. I get it, because he wasn’t expecting to wrestle. Rhino continues putting the boots to Thomas as he tapes up his wrists and then dumps him out to the floor where Truth Martini gets in some free kicks. Rhino goes out to the floor and tells Truth to back off, then rams Thomas back first into the barricade. Rhino rolls Thomas back inside and cinches in a bearhug, then hits a snapmare and a legdrop for 2 before going back to the bearhug. Thomas escapes the hold and blocks Rhino’s punches with the top of his head, then get a series of cartwheel kicks before baseball sliding Truth off the apron. Rhino gets ahole of him and hits a belly to belly suplex, then sets up for the Gore…but Truth Martini trips Thomas from the outside. Rhino goes to yell at Truth because he doesn’t need his help, then tries the Gore again and Thomas has now had enough time to recover to get a sweep kick to the face of Rhino and a rolling cradle for the win.
Winner: Tadarius Thomas
Rhino is pissed off and grabs Truth Martini by the neck, and Truth tries showing him the money to save his butt, but Rhino presses Truth over his head and press slams him out to the floor so hard that the barricade tears his pants open and leaves a big red mark on the side of his ass.
TV Title Match: Adam Cole vs Eddie Edwards
Edwards was, of course, the first ever ROH TV Champion and has since gone on to become the first ever ROH Triple Crown winner. Cole has a new evil beard as he and Edwards circle one another and tie up, with Edwards taking Cole to the corner and breaking clean. Cole seems hesitant to get too close in with Edwards, but ties up and gets taken down by Edwards, who easily outwrestles him and takes him to the mat with a chinlock/armbar combination. Cole hits a switch and shoots in on a double leg, but Edwards quickly scoots to the ropes to force the break. Another tie up, Cole goes to a wristlock but Edwards easily counters to one of his own and yanks Cole down to the mat, but Cole pops back to his feet and tries a dropkick, Edwards catches his legs, but Cole rolls through into a cradle for 2. Edwards acknowledges the cheers of the fans, but then the other half starts cheering for Cole as they tie up yet again in the middle of the ring. They go to a Greco-Roman knucklelock and Edwards breaks Cole down to a bridge, blocking Cole’s attempt to bridge up to his feet by placing his knee in Cole’s chest. Cole finally manages to work back to a vertical position and breaks Edwards down to a bridge, then floats on top of Edwards to try and break the bridge down. Edwards holds firm and monkey flips Cole over, and they both hold onto the knucklelock. Edwards rolls Cole to a sunset flip for 2, Cole reverses to a cradle for 2, and they go back and forth with several more pinfall attempt with neither man able to score a fall. Edwards tries an Achilles Lock, Cole reverses to a cradle, and they continue the pinfall reversals until Eddie ducks a superkick attempt, takes Cole down with a side headlock, and cole uses a headscissors to escape and they go back to a stalemate. Cole takes Edwards to the ropes and braks clean, but Edwards chops him in the chest. Cole responds with a forearm, and they go back and forth until Cole sends Edwards to the ropes and takes a charge, but Edwards dodges and dumps him out to the floor. Edwards goes for a dive, but Cole sees him coming and takes him out with a leaping enziguiri. Cole slowly climbs to the apron and catches a running boot from Edwards, who tries the dive again and connects on the second try. Edwards rolls Cole back into the ring and hits a Shining Wizard knee for 2. Edwards gets a rear chinlock while trapping Cole’s arm with his leg, then uses the back of his arm to pancake Cole’s face. Cole gets to his feet and elbows out of the hold, then dropkicks Eddie’s knee out from under him and starts throwing kicks at the knee, but Edwards returns the favor and now both men have bad knees as Eddie unleashes some hard chops in the corner. They fight over a vertical suplex until Cole suplexes Eddie out to the apron and connects with a leaping enziguiri. Eddie is down on the apron as Cole slingshots over the top rope and hits a DDT where Eddie only grazes the apron and mostly tumbles headfirst onto the floor. He seems to be okay, so the referee starts the count as Cole dumps Eddie back into the ring and comes off the top rope with a frogsplash for 2. Cole with a fireman’s carry into a neckbreaker over the knee for 2. Eddie’s neck seems to be in bad shape as Cole goes to the second rope, but Eddie hits a leaping enziguiri and the Backpack Driver for 2. Eddie’s neck really seems to be slowing him down as he goes for a vertical suplex, but Cole slips out the back and backdrops Eddie out to the apron. Cole goes for a kick, but Eddie catches his foot and hits a Dragon Screw legwhip and goes to the Achilles Lock. Eddie has Cole trapped right in the middle of the ring and Cole goes to the ropes, but Eddie drags him back out to the middle of the ring and stomps on the back of Cole’s head. Cole tries to kick his way out of the hold, Eddie rolls him back over and gets more stomps to the back of the head, but Colle with more kicks to the chin of Eddie, and Edwards drops the hold and goes down. Eddie boots Cole in the face, but Cole gets a victory roll and swings through right into a figure four, but Eddie fights his way to the ropes. Cole sets Eddie on the top rope and goes for a superplex, but Eddie picks Cole up in a fireman’s carry and they both tumble off the top rope and to the floor. Eddie is up first and rolls Cole into the ring, but runs right into a bicycle kick from Cole. Eddie responds with a pair of superkicks and goes for a suplex, but Cole counters to a vertical suplex into a neckbreaker and a superkick for 2. Cole immediately goes to the Florida Key and gets the three count.
Winner: Adam Cole
Another awesome match, and these guys took a ton of punishment in this one. The Code of Honor is followed after the match as Cole has picked up another big win, having now pinned three of the last four ROH World Champions in the last year.

Holy crap, that match was amazing. That may have been even better than Elgin’s match with Davey Richards over Wrestlemania weekend.

Roderick Strong comes back into the ring and takes Elgin out with the Sick Kick, then runs off to the back with his hands raised as referee Paul Turner comes out and hands Nigel McGuinness a package. Nigel gets a microphone and tells Steen that he was just informed that if Steen retained the title tonight, he had to personally deliver that package to Steen. Nigel hands the package to Steen, and he opens it to reveal…an El Generico mask! Generico looks severely consternated as the crowd chants Ole at him and the iPPV comes to a close.
