War Of Words Between Castagnoli And Kingston

Caprice Coleman is backstage for a sit-down interview with both ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli and Eddie Kingston. Castagnoli apologizes for saying Kingston has "no honor," but maintains that Kingston is not worth of the ROH Title. Kingston says the apology means nothing. He says the Castagnoli wouldn't do business the last time they met, so he'll have to force him. Kingston adds that Jon Moxley won't be around to save Castagnoli. Castagnoli says Kingston ran away when things got hard and it was time to put in the work. He says Kingston is not on his level and can not beat him. Kingston tells Castagnoli to "prove it" and Castagnoli agrees to give him a title shot. He says when Kingston loses, he'll blame everyone else and run away. Castagnoli calls Kingston the "biggest waste of potential" he's ever seen in his life.


Matt Taven (with Mike Bennett & Maria Kanellis-Bennett) vs. Darius Martin: Darius' brother and Top Flight tag team partner Dante is not in his corner for this match. Taven pinned Martin with The Climax to get the win. The Kingdom was poised for a post-match attack but Dante ran out to make the save.

Big Win For Billie Starks

Tony Deppen vs. ROH World 6-Man Tag Team Champion Brian Cage (with Bishop Kaun, Toa Liona & Prince Nana): Cage got the pinfall victory with the Drill Claw.
