Beer City Bruiser & Brian Milonas vs. Jimmy & Johnny Boots & Tights: Bruiser is not impressed with the jobber posing. They stall, push and shove, and Bruiser slaps him and hits an atomic drop.

Bruiser in as well, as the Bouncers take control sand hit the veg-o-matic for the win. Beer City Bruiser & Brian Milonas defeated Jimmy & Johnny Boots & Tights @ 5:30 via pin [*] This was bland with the jobbers getting in too much offense.

Rayne fights back with off with her hear for the win. Madison Rayne defeated Thunder Rosa @ 9:18 via pin [**] This was a bit disjointed and never really felt locked in; it was ok at best.

Zack Sabre Jr vs. Rocky Romero: Sabre looks to ground things, and starts attacking the arm. Romero works to his feet, but Sabre grounds him and is back to the arm. Romero again fights to his feet and follows with a dropkick. Sabre quickly attacks the leg and again takes Romero down.

Sabre locks in the grounded cobra twist and Romero taps.

The 411
This week’s ROH TV was a very typical post PPV show, It’s taped before the PPV, so it showcases no fallout, and while solid, was a mixed bag overall.
