Match #1: All Night Express vs. Adam Cole & Kyle O'Reilly
I'm so sorry everyone, my feed didn't come in until about 6:45. I join you with this match already in progress. Kenny King is working over O'Reilly. Tag to Titus and O'Reilly dodges the double team maneuver. King clotheslines Titus. Chain of dragon screw leg whips and a tag to Cole. Takes care of Titus and hops the rope DDT-ing KING ONTO THE APRON! Kick to the head of Titus from the outside! Kyle gets 3 consecutive Butterfly suplexes on Titus! Missile Dropkick running on the apron to King seated on the outside!!! Flying crossbody on Titus for 2 from Cole! Lots of nearfalls and big spots here! Swinging DDT from O'Reilly! Superkick from Cole to Titus! All four men are down! Plenty of "this is awesome" chants through what I've seen. More combination moves and kickouts! Fireman carry into a Superkick with O'Reilly and Cole gets 2 on King! Titus saves King from a wheelbarrow move and dropkicks Cole in the face! They hit a Doomsday Powerbomb combination for the 3 count!
Result: The All Night Express via pinfall @ ??:??.
Rating: I apologize that I was unable to see the full match. I can't rate this for that reason, but from what I saw, I'll give it 3 and a half dragons.
My thoughts: Fun last 7 or 8 minutes. I look forward to seeing the start. Cole and O'Reilly will be a forced to be reckoned with in the new year. Take my word for it.
Match #2: TJ Perkins vs. Colt Cabana
Announcer hypes how young TJP is while Colt plays with TJP. Eventually TJP sees an out, cartwheels, and hits Colt with a dropkick. Colt regains control, but after a whip, TJ stalls in the ropes, Cabana charges, flip over, duck, and another standoff. Fun start. My stream has now frozen...back and Perkins gets a nice headscissor takeover at the end of a combo. Series of 1 counts with Colt and Remsburg. Colt gets in a 69 headstand...and then a 2 count. Colt gets TJP in a surfboard and drops him into a body scissors. Pin for 2. Perkins flips out, grabs Colt's boot, flips over, cartwheel, and another standoff. Colt Cabana chants get dueling TJP(erkins) chants. Colt has the arm and is in control. TJP up and goes for a shoulder tackle. Cabana doesn't go down. He has the wrist. TJP reverses with a side headlock takeover. Series of 1 counts again. Perkins gets control of the legs and more 2 counts. Monkey flip, body scissors (man there's a lot happening here!), more chain wrestling. TJP tries for a victory roll but Colt gets a Billy Goat's Curse! Perkins gets the bottom rope. Elbow to Colt. Some acrobatics and a BIG chop. Flip Flop from Cabana! Colt tries for a Flying Asshole but gets a double stomp from the corner. 2 count from TJP. More chain wrestling that sees Colt get an effective pin, locking the wrists for 3 on TJP.
Result: Colt Cabana via pinfall @ 8:30.
My thoughts: Lots of great back and forth action here. TJP looked great in defeat and Cabana entertained as always. I hope this leads to Perkins as a regular in Ring of Honor.
We get the same recap of the Del Rey/Haze rivalry that we saw on HDNet on Monday. It's a little longer this time though.
Match #3: Sara Del Rey & Serena Deeb vs. Daizee Haze & Awesome Kong
I see Deeb's not wasting any time in growing her hair back out. Daizee's music starts, but instead it goes into what I presume to be Kong's music. STREAMERS FOR KONG! Heh. Haze and Kong have matching gear. "f--k THE DIVAS" *clap clap clapclapclap*. Haze and Del Rey start.
