– Ian Riccabani and Quinn McKay run down the recent events in ROH involving the heel turn by Jonathan Gresham.

Jonathan Gresham vs. Alex Shelley: They lock up and work into counters as Shelley looks to take control but Gresham quickly escapes. They lock back up and Gresham starts attacking the arm. Shelley counters into an abdominal stretch, transitions to a cravat but Gresham counters out. Shelley shoots him to the buckles, but Gresham counters, and hits the dropkick. Shelley hits a knee strike, PK, snap suplex and then a knee drop for 1. Shelley dirties things up a bit, and locks on a Detroit love bucket. The cradle follows for 2. Gresham escapes the full nelson, hits the springboard moonsault press and attacks the arm. Gresham maintains focus on the arm, drags him down and follows with a hammerlock, adds in the other arm and transitions into a bridge. He now adds in the leg, going all ZSJ here, torturing Shelley and cradling him for 2. He stomps away at the arm, and covers for 2. Gresham keeps attacking that arm, and again covers for 2. The crucifix follows for 2. Gresham keeps it grounded, constantly attacking the arm and Shelley counters back and eats an enziguri but he then dropkicks the knee of Gresham. He follows with an enziguri and heads up top, hits the high cross but Gresham rolls through they tumble weed around and Gresham gets the cradle for 2. Gresham attacks the arm and the cradle follows for 2. Gresham grounds him and Shelley counters the surfboard into a over for 2. Gresham then counters into a cradle for a great near fall. Shelley fires back with kicks, but Gresham dropkicks the arm and they work up top. Shelley gets the atomic drop, Gresham counters sliced bread but Shelley cuts him off, hits the superkick and Gedo clutch for the win. Alex Shelley defeated Jonathan Gresham @ 14:30 via pin [****] This was a great technical battle and was completely different than anything else on the card. It’s just a shame that they didn’t follow up on Gresham’s big win over Lethal here.
