No Bobby Cruise tonight.
Eddie Edwards out with Jim Cornette. Cornette says he cannot wrestle. Eddie cuts a promo and puts over ROH and Norfolk.
1. Kenny King over Andy “Right Leg” Ridge in a solid opener.
2. Mike Bennett over Grizzly Redwood in very squashy match.
3. Kevin Steen over Adam Cole with a F5 in a hard-fought bout.
Post-match, Steen goes for the Package Piledriver, but Eddie Edwards makes the save.
4. ROH World Tag Team Title Match
Jay & Mark Briscoe (C) over Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander to retain their titles with the Doomsday Device. Not a breakout bout for C & C.
Intermission time – Attendance estimate is 400-500.
WGTT out and talking about how “great” they are. Also note that they’ve wrestled in the “real” Scope Arena and are cut off by a local team…who got the biggest pop of the night thus far.
5. Jeff Early and Zak Hilton, VA’s Own A1 over Greatest Tag Team:
Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas via DQ when Paul Turner is shoved. WGTT bear up A1 post match and Briscoes make the save – Big brawl ensues. Briscoes stand tall. Lots of attempted chair shots, none connected.
6. Proving Ground Match
Tommaso Ciampa w/ Prince Nana, Barrister R.D. Evans, Mr. Ernesto Osiris & Princess Mia over ROH World TV Champion Jay Lethal (C) via “Project Ciampa” just before the time limit was set to expire and earns a future title shot.
7. ROH World Tag Team Title Shot on 2/17 On The Line
Davey Richards & Kyle O’Reilly over Roderick Strong & Michael Elgin w/ Truth Martini when O’Reilly pinned Strong after an errant shot from Truth to Roddy with The Book of Truth. O’Reilly looked like he belonged in the main event.
Team Ambition/Team Richards will now face Jay & Mark Briscoe for the ROH World Tag Team Titles in Cincinnati on 2/17.
No Return Date to Norfolk announced.
Thanks again to Thomas Bobo on our forum for compiling the results.
