Adrenaline Rush vs. 3.0 (Scott Parker and Shane Mathews)
ACH and Parker start things off. They chain wrestle. ACH gets a dropkick, followed by a back elbow. He goes up top and Mathews takes him off, draping his head across the top rope. Parker drops a knee. Mathews comes in and ACH fights back with strikes. Parker comes back in and knocks Thomas off the apron. ACH backdrops him and tags in Thomas. He fights off both members of 3.0 with strikes. He hits Parker with a pair of kicks and a big Suplex. Mathews breaks up the pin attempt. Thomas knees Mathews in the chest. ACH comes in. He goes up top and leaps off at Mathews. Mathews dodges and Parker hits ACH with a back elbow.
ACH goes flying over Parker and Mathews spears him in mid air. Parker gets a near pin fall. Mathews drives ACH into the corner and Parker hits him with an enziguri. Parker kicks Thomas off the apron. Parker hits ACH with a Samoan drop. Mathews hits ACH with a powerbomb and then locks in a Boston Crab. Thomas gets back on the apron. Parker charges him and Thomas pulls the ropes down, sending him to the outside. Thomas breaks the submission by kicking Mathews in the chest. Thomas then hits a springboard backflip, taking Parker out on the outside. Back in the ring and ACH hits a modified DDT (I think it's called the Big Bang, but not sure) for the win.
Winners: Adrenaline Rush
Back from commercial and Nigel McGuinness is in the ring. He talks about stripping Jay Briscoe of the ROH Title. He says that the title is vacant and the war with SCUM is over. He says Jay Briscoe's run will always be a casualty of that war. He says it wasn't an easy decision to make because you can't take away what Jay's achieved as champion.
He says he is faced with the decision of making a new ROH World Champion. He talks about the tournament and where the final will take place. He says now that SCUM is gone, they can concentrate on building honor again. Since there is currently no ROH Champ, he is going to put more emphasis on the tag team division.
reDRagon then interrupt and walk out to the ring. Nigel says reDRagon is the best tag team in the world today. Bobby Fish takes up the mic and agrees with Nigel. Fish says that since they've had the titles TV ratings have gone up. Fish says he didn't come for the crowd's applause and tells them to keep it quiet. Fish says they're there to do Nigel a favor and that their reign has reached a mythological level. He says they're there to man up.
Fish mentions that tonight, they face the Forever Hooligans in a Proving Ground match. Fish asks to change the match from Proving Ground to a Title match. Nigel says it's a fantastic idea and the title will be put on the line.
The American Wolves then come out. Nigel asks what they have to say. Davey takes the mic and says he gives reDRagon props for putting the belts on the line against the Hooligans. He says they're one of the best teams in the world. Davey says he hates to admit it, but since reDRagon wears the belts, they're the best. But, there's a reason that the Wolves aren't in the World Title Tournament. They want to take up their rightful place as tag champs. Richards says to keep the belts warm because whatever happens tonight, they're coming to collect.
Then, Inside ROH is shown and they talk about Jay Briscoe and being stripped of the title. Michael Elgin is shown saying he doesn't want to be handed the title. The tournament bracket is shown.
