The Bucks music hit and they made their way to ringside. The Bucks got on the mic and said that an ROH show in Chicago can't take place without them in a match.

An exciting match with all three teams emptying out the tandem offensive playbook.... Bucks matches are so difficult to recap, so bare with me..... The first minute alone sees The Bucks hit a wheel barrow cutter. The Jacksons then attempt their signature terminator spot, only to have The Tempura Boyz catch them and hit stereo release german suplexes on the ringside floor. Coast to Coast is up next with their tandem spot, when they hit Sho and Yo with an assisted jumping flatliner. Then it's crash and burn time with dueling over the top rope dives by Ali and LSG.
The show returns from the break with a 3 man sunset flip turning into a release german suplex. This leads into a pop up diamond cutter by the Tempura Boyz on Nick Jackson. Followed shortly thereafter by an assisted sliced bread/superkick by the Bucks. The Jacksons then hit their signature buckle bomb/corner kick. Nick Jackson then does a somersault dive onto Coast for Coast for added measure. A Meltzer driver is attempted but countered by Sho. Coast to Coast ends up back in the action and they connect with successive springboard offensive maneuvers. Ali and LSG are able to evade superkicks by Matt and Nick, they then get the Tempura Boyz up in the air for dueling tombstone piledrivers. The Bucks are back, they superkick LSG and Ali, while they are holding up Sho & Yo. Got this so far lol..... With the Tempura Boyz still being held up in tombstone piledriver positions. They end up executing assisted Meltzer drivers with The Young Bucks. Ali & LSG get stereo superkicked immediately after and The Bucks cover The Boyz for the victory.
