Mary Scurll & PCO vs. TK O’Ryan & Vinny Marseglia: The Kingdom attacks, but Marty and PCO cut them off and clear the ring. They then double team Vinny, but TK tags in and Marty cuts him off, attacking the arm. Marty gets a cradle for 2, but Vinny pulls him to the floor and slams him to the barricade. The Kingdom works quick tags and double teams, covering for 2. Post break and TK has things grounded. He follows with rights, a slam and tags in Vinny. Marty fights them off, and tags in PCO. PCO runs wild on the Kingdom with ease and hits a pop up powerbomb on TK. Marty joins in, they clear the ring and PCO hits an assisted dive. Back in and Marty hits the superplex on Vinny, and PCO hits the frog splash for 2. TK tags in, but runs into an enziguri. TK counters the chicken wing Vinny back in, and hits the Russian leg sweep for 2. PCO and Vinny brawl on the apron, and Vinny hits a suicide dive. TK hits a spinebuster and Vinny hits red rum for 2. Post break and Vinny sets PCO on a table and hits red rum through the table. PCO fires the fuck up, heads up top but TK cuts him off. TK hip tosses him off the top and onto the apron. The Kingdom follows with double teams and that gets 2 on Marty. Marty fights off house of a thousand horses, hits a powerbomb and the crab/leg drop Quebecois combo connects. Marty gets the chicken wing and Vinny taps. Mary Scurll & PCO defeated TK O’Ryan & Vinny Marseglia @ 14:00 via pin [***½] This was a very good tag match with some great double teams & near falls along with PCO craziness.

– Rush cuts a promo in Spanish. Bandido arrives and he cuts a promo in Spanish. They face at the PPV.

Champion Mayu Iwatani vs. Holidead: They lock up, Holidead attacks with kicks and runs into a back elbow for 2 for Iwatani. Iwatani picks up the pace, hits a dropkick and follows with another. Iwatani up top, Holidead follows her up and Iwatani connects with a kick, but Holidead hits a stunner in the ropes. The apron leg drop follows. Post break and Holidead controls, Iwatani fires back as Sumie Sakai is at ringside. Iwatani follows with kicks, takes Holidead down and covers for 2. Holidead catches the high cross and the spinebuster follows for 2. Iwatani counters the catatonic into a crucifix bomb for 2. Holidead levels Iwatani with a lariat, covering for 2. Holidead picks up Iwatani, but Iwatani hits the superkick and German. The head kick connects and the moonsault finishes it. Champion Mayu Iwatani defeated Holidead @ 6:48 via pin [**¾] This was a pretty good match, with Holidead giving the champion some trouble before finally losing.

– Kelly Klein arrives and Iwatani takes out her team and stands tall.

– We see footage of King & PCO winning tag wars, earning them a tag title shot. The PPV match is now no DQ.

35.30Kenny King vs. Dalton Castle: They lock up and work to the corner. Castle grounds things, follows with elbow strikes and he poses. King follows with back elbows, but gets dumped. Post break and King now has things grounded, working the back of Castle. He follows with head butts, but Castle hits knee strikes and a DDT. King fires back with jabs, they work into counters and Castle hits a clothesline. The bulldog follows for 2. King fights to his feet, misses a kick and Castle hits the gut wrench suplex for 2. King rolls to the floor and tosses a boy into Castle and hits royal flush for the win. Kenny King defeated Dalton Castle @ 6:00 via pin [**] This was only ok, as Castle continues to struggle through his injury issues. King continues to roll with wins over Scurll and now former champion Dalton Castle.

– King promises to beat Scurll at the PPV.

– Matt Taven is upset that Lethal destroyed his fake world tile belt.

– We get PPV hype videos.

– Taven calls out Lethal in the ring. He’s still upset about the fake belt and calls Lethal a coward. Lethal arrives and the Kingdom attacks. They all beat Lethal down, ripping his clothes off and working him over. Lethal fights back, but gets cut off. House of a thousand horses follows. They get a table, and Gresham arrives to make the save. They cut him off, and house of a thousand horses follows. They then post him and set up the table. Taven puts Lethal through the table with a top rope elbow drop. This was a good idea for a go home segment, but it came of largely heatless.

– End Scene.

– Thanks for reading.

The 411
This week’s ROH TV was a solid but unspectacular go home show, which really lacked a strong focus on the PPV with the closing angle not coming off all that well.
