ROH TV Recap: McGuinness Confronts Lethal, The Briscoes Defend, More
This week's Ring of Honor Wrestling TV is the first new episode of the New Year, after several weeks of Road Rage episodes.

The show also opens with a new video package.

Alabama Attitude (Corey Hollis and Mike Posey) vs. Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly

Hollis and O'Reilly start things off. They tie up in the center of the ring and go back and forth before both wrestlers tag their partners in.

O'Reilly hits Posey with a knee before going out, and Fish comes in with a drop kick. He keeps the attack up, eventually nailing Posey with a back breaker. O'Reilly lands an elbow drop.

Fish and O'Reilly keep up the offense and go for a double team, but Posey escapes and tags in Hollis, who comes in hot with several strikes. After a Suplex, Posey comes back in and AA does a modified DDT thing where they force Fish to DDT O'Reilly.

Fish and O'Reilly come back and after several German Suplexes, they hit Posey with a kick/Brainbuster combo for the win.

Winners: Alabama Attitude

After the match, Nigel McGuinness comes down to the ring and he talks about how at Final Battle he had to kick Jay Lethal out of the building. He then calls Lethal to the ring.

Lethal comes out and McGuinness says that he didn't expect Lethal to step up, and so he is giving him a warning. He says though that if Lethal steps out of line another time, he will regret it.

Lethal says that he understands and has just been frustrated. He then asks what he has to do to get a title shot.

McGuinness then says the only way is to change Steen's mind.

Then, a recap of the finish to the Adam Cole and Matt Hardy match at Final Battle 2012 is shown. Hardy and Charlie Haas are shown complaining about the fact that Whitmer gets a TV Title shot. Then, the video package says that Kevin Steen might not be the same after Final Battle, but Steve Corino says that McGuinness is just starting rumors and it will be the same Steen.

Top Prospects Tournament: Mike Sydal vs. QT Marshall with RD Evans

They tie up in the center and Marshall gets a cheap shot. Sydal goes to the apron.

Evans distracts Sydal, allowing Marshall to continue the attack. He hits a side Suplex for a near pin fall.

Sydal comes back with a DDT, and both wrestlers are sprawled out. Sydal takes control and connects with some drop kicks.

Sydal then nails Marshall with a Hurricanrana to the outside. He goes up top and hits a moonsault for near pin fall.

Sydal does a standing moonsault, but Marshall puts his knees up and then hits God's Gift for the win.

Winner: QT Marshall

After the match, Veda Scott is backstage with Caprice Coleman and Cedric Alexander, and they talk about how they like the Briscoes, but they're going to win.

Then she is with the Briscoes, and they say that Coleman and Alexander are their friends, but not when the bell rings.
