We see video from Final Battle when the Decade was formed.


Back from commercial as Jay Briscoe makes his way to the ring.

Jay says that if you haven’t heard, he has an offer on the table for Adam Cole. The problem is that he hasn’t gotten an answer. Cole could leave his belt at home and he will put the Real World Championship on the line. I’m tired of waiting. Adam Cole, bring your sweet ass to the ring. Adam Cole comes out and says that Jay expects him to walk down this ramp, come into the ring, and face him one on one for what Jay claims is the “Real” World Championship. I will paint this as crystal clear as possible so even a dumb redneck like Jay can understand. Jay is not the “real” World Champion. I am the real World Champion. Jay’s belt did not grow legs, walk to him, and talk to him. Jay’s belt is a toy and a prop to hide behind the shame and embarrassment that Jay is no longer the face of Ring of Honor. I am the face of Ring of Honor. Jay has done such a good job of convincing himself that he is the “real” champion that the fans think that is true. Because of that, he will never care what the people think about him, other than Matt Hardy. I will put this all to rest. Will I face Jay for the “Real” Ring of Honor World Championship? I’ll tell ya next week. Cole leaves the ring and Jay upset.

Top Prospect Tournament 1st Round Match: Cheeseburger vs. Hanson

Cheesebruger avoids an early avalanche by Hanson. Hanson blocks a side headlock takeover and hits a boot. Knee to the ribs, but Cheeseburger with a jawbreaker. Hanson blocks a Sunset Flip and hits a suplex. Hanson with a series of crossface shots. Snake Eyes, but Cheeseburger comes back with a dropkick to the knees.

Hanson comes back with a big spinning heel kick for the win.

Winner and advancing to the semi-finals: Hanson by pinfall (Spinning Heel Kick)


We are supposed to get Adam Page vs. Mark Briscoe next, but before the bell, the Decade makes their way to the ring. Jimmy Jacobs grabs a mic and says that he is sorry to interrupt but they have been in the company for ten years so they can interrupt whenever they want. The Decade have been the cornerstone of this company for over ten years. They are unappreciated by the fans and the boys in the back, but not by Mark Briscoe. Mark has also been here since day one. I haven’t forgotten. We see guys like Chris Hero and AJ Styles leave for greener pastures and then waltz back into the company. Mark belongs with The Decade. He shouldn’t be wrestling some guy who is going to use this company as a stepping stone, like Adam Page. Jacobs slaps Page and then Roderick Strong and BJ Whitmer attack Page. Mark Briscoe fights off the Decade and sends them fleeing from the ring.


The Decade (Jimmy Jacobs & BJ Whitmer) vs. Mark Briscoe & Adam Page

The match is joined in progress as Jacobs rakes Mark’s eyes. Whitmer sends Briscoe to the outside. Page comes back with a leg lariat on Jacobs, but Whitmer trips him up, allowing Jacobs to hit a DDT. Whitmer in, back elbow for a nearfall. Jacobs in, assisted spear on Page for a nearfall. Whitmer in, but Page fights back and tags in Mark. Redneck Kung Fu to Whitmer, followed by a clothesline that sends Whitmer to the outside. Jacobs sends Mark to the outside, but then Page wipes out Whitmer with a standing shooting star press off the apron! Mark knocks Jacobs off the apron, then wipes out Whitmer with an elbow drop off the apron! Back in, Mark with a DVD on Whitmer. Page in, standing shooting star press for a nearfall. Page heads up top, but Jacobs crotches him. Whitmer heads up with Page and hits a Super Exploder, but Mark breaks up the pin. More Redneck Kung Fu to Whitmer, followed by a jawbreaker and an enziguri. Whitmer sends Mark to the outside, but Page rolls up Whitmer for a nearfall. Whitmer comes back with a clothesline.

Decade hit a Dominator/Ace Crusher combo for the win.

Winners: The Decade by pinfall (Dominator/Ace Crusher combo)

We see video from last week when Cliff Compton attacked Kevin Steen. We see comments from Steen afterwards, saying he wants to fight Compton so he can show him why the fans chanted “Kill Steen Kill.”


Before the main event, Matt Taven comes to the ring. Taven says that for nine months, 287 days, he was the longest reigning Television Champion. He took the title to new heights and he took great pride in being the face of this television company. He did it by doing things his way. Then on one night in New York City, things did not go his way. The belt should be his and will be his again. He did not come to the ring to complain. He came to the ring to do something that he did not get to do in New York. Taven offers his hand to Tommaso Ciampa, but Silas Young attacks Taven. Taven chases Young around the ring, but security sends Taven to the back.
