ROH Episode 357 Recap: Dalton Castle Loses World Title In 4-Way With Jay Lethal, Matt Taven & Cody

A video package recapping Best In The World weekend is shown. Ian Riccaboni and Colt Cabana check in on commentary after the usual ROH signature video package.

Jay Lethal makes his entrance for an in-ring promo. Lethal talks about his victory at Best In The World. Lethal says that he wanted to be at the top of his game before entering the title picture. Lethal challenges Dalton Castle for a title shot. Matt Taven comes to the ring. Taven questions how many shots Jay needs, how many opportunities the company needs to give him. Taven talks about how he's had two title shots in the six years he's been there and both matches ended with interference with the company doing nothing about it. Taven says that he would get dressed up like Lethal, but he actually has to work for this company. Taven says that Castle has been ducking him with a fake injury. Taven claims to be the real World Champion. Taven says that Lethal has to get in line behind the king. Cody makes his entrance (with Bernard The Business Bear). Cody says that Taven has a valid point and that he's clearly in line for a title shot and Lethal is obviously in line for a title shot, but he is next in line. ROH World Champion Dalton Castle makes his entrance. Castle says this is wild. Castle talks about not being afraid of any challenge before accepting the challenge from all three of them for a 4-Way match tonight.
