– Alex Shelley arrives and comments on his loss to Taven in Toronto. It was a loss, but also a win because he took the champion to the limit. Not bad for a guy who had two matches in 16-months and one singles match in three years. It’s an exciting time in wrestling for free agents like him. he wants to wrestle Mark Haskins since they were in TNA together and TNA treated him like crap. He wants to wrestle Williams, Lethal, & Gresham. Gresham arrives and says that Shelley says that ROH needs change, and Shelley had that chance and failed against Taven. “When it counted, you dropped the ball. When we needed you, you dropped the ball”. Gresham is upset that he hasn’t gotten the same opportunities, and is disappointed in Shelley. Shelley says if Gresham had waited, he would realize that Shelley wants to face him and calls him a douche bag. Shelley calls him “Puss,” and says while Gresham was busy 0laying with an Alex Shelley action figure and picking him in a video game and studying his tapes, while he was changing the business and making history. Shelley challenges him to a match, for October 12th in New Orleans. Gresham bails to “Octapussy” chants as Shelley reminds us he has talent on loan from God and will whip that ass Detroit style.

– PJ Black joins commentary.
