ROH TV Recap (1/27): Big Triple Threat Main Event, Moose, Michael Elgin, Jay Briscoe, Tournament

Welcome to this week's coverage of Ring of Honor TV! This week's show kicks off the 2016 Top Prospect Tournament!

Shaheem Ali vs. Brian Fury

Ali is a Monster Factory product under the tutelage of Danny Cage, while Fury helped train Sasha Banks. The two trade arm drags early until Ali connects with a dropkick, a body slam and a standing frog splash. Ali's face is sent into the second turnbuckle, but Fury can't put him away. Ali gets two on an awesome gutwrench powerbomb, and the crowd gets behind him.

Fury pulls a neckbreaker out of nowhere, but both men end up outside the ring. Ali gets a great reaction off of an Exploder suplex on the floor. Back inside, Fury grabs the ref, headbutts Ali and hits a pop-up powerbomb for the win.

Winner: Brian Fury via pinfall (Pop-up Powerbomb)

- Cedric Alexander gets a great hometown welcome, and Veda Scott takes the mic and talks about their settlement from ROH. They take a shot at Jonathan Gresham and say that they want the biggest and the baddest. Cheeseburger comes out.

- Nigel McGuinness is in the ring, and he's quickly interrupted by The House of Truth. McGuinness says Adam Cole is the number one contender. Cole comes out and says he beat Kyle O'Reilly, and now he's done with him. Nigel disagrees and says he's doubling down in Vegas, and it'll be a triple threat match. Kyle O'Reilly comes down and challenges Cole and Lethal to face ReDRagon next week. We'll have an exclusive interview with Adam Cole leading into his championship match.

- Silas Young is backstage, still hurt that the Boys left him.

- Moose interrupts the Elgin/Jay Briscoe match. Stokely Hathaway says he asked Nigel to make another triple threat match, and Moose is now involved.

Michael Elgin vs. Jay Briscoe vs. Moose (w/ Stokely Hathaway)

Elgin hangs on to a vertical suplex despite Moose kicking him. He then puts Briscoe on Moose's shoulder and hits a Flatliner on Moose. Moose dropkicks Elgin to the floor, and then Briscoe boots Moose several times as we go to a commercial break. We come back to see Elgin landing a Tower of Doom spot that lays everyone out.

Elgin with a slingshot splash on Moose, but it doesn't get the pin. Elgin pushes Briscoe into a spear from Moose, then connects with an enziguri. Moose comes back with a pop-up lariat, but it doesn't get the job done. Briscoe comes back in with a superkick to Elgin, but gets turned inside out with a clothesline. Briscoe pulls out a backslide and wins.

Winner: Jay Briscoe via pinfall

Elgin takes the mic after the match and challenges the Briscoes to face him and Tanahashi at the 14th Anniversary PPV. The Briscoes accept, but this won't be happening because of Tanahashi's injury.
