Dark match: Shaheem Ali pinned Kevin Lee Davidson after a frog splash.

Kevin Kelly was introduced along with Mr Wrestling 3 (Steve Corino).

1. Cedric Alexander pinned Will Ferrara. Fairly even match until Cedric dragon screw leg whipped Ferrara’s leg between the ropes. Cedric worked the leg and hit several running corner kicks. Will tried to fight back but fell victim to the Lumbar Check and was pinned.

It was announced that ROH TV Champion Roderick Strong suffered a concussion the previous night in Milwaukee and could not complete in the SOTF final. He came out and vowed to get a ROH Title shot.

BJ Whitmer and Adam Page came out to confront Mr Wrestling 3. BJ said he’d hold the show hostage until Wrestling 3 unmasked. BJ got in ref Todd Sinclair’s face and Sinclair ejected BJ from the building, leaving Page to fend for himself.

2. Dalton Castle beat Adam Page. Castle kept Page off balance with mat work, but Page caught Castle outside the ring with a running shooting star press off the apron. Page then hit his vaulting lariat for a near fall. BJ Whitmer ran back to ringside to attack Mr Wrestling 3 and distracted Page. Castle then used a spinning facebuster to pin Page.

3. Mark Briscoe pinned Frankie Kazarian. Kaz started running his mouth at the ref and shoved him. The ref shoved Kaz back into a rollup from Briscoe. Briscoe hit a shotgun dropkick and a fisherman buster for two. Kaz hit a vaulting DDT and a slingshot cutter for two. Kaz went up top for the Flux Capacitor, but Briscoe shoved him off and hit the Froggy Bow for the win. Good match.

4. Adam Cole, Matt Taven, Michael Bennett (w/Maria) beat Moose (w/Stokeley Hathaway), Ray Rowe, and Hanson. Very entertaining six-man tag. Moose teed off on all three Kingdom members only to be hit with a triple super kick. Later, all six men took turns hitting high kicks on each other with The Kingdom looking to hit Moose with a triple spear, but Rowe and Hanson broke it up. Moose tried to hit Bennett with a spear but hit Hanson instead. Taven took out Moose then the Kingdom hit another triple superkick on Rowe. Cole brainbusted Rowe over his knee then the ROH Tag Champs finished off Rowe with a spike pile driver. Awesome stuff.


5. Joey “Diesel” Dadiego (w/Truth Martini, Taeler Hendrix) beat Cheeseburger. J Diesel dominated Cheeseburger save for a palm strike and a leaping knee strike from Burger. Hendrix distracted the ref while Truth grabbed Burger’s leg. J Diesel hit a modified Death Valley Driver to win.

6. The Young Bucks beat Kenny King and Rhett Titus. Too many double team moves to count as The Bucks superkicked ANX before the bell. ANX isolated Matt Jackson for the majority of the match until the Bucks got the Superkick Party started and unloaded on ANX and accidentally kicked the ref. ANX recovered to nail Matt with the One Night Stand, but the ref was still out. The Bucks recovered, disposed of King, and eventually downed Titus with the Meltzer Driver for the win. Another great match. The crowd loved the Bucks.

7. AJ Styles pinned Matt Sydal. Classic match. Very even match that had Sydal fighting off both the Styles Clash and Bloody Sunday and hit the Slice for two. After exchanges by both men, Sydal missed a shooting star press. Styles hit a Pele kick, Bloody Sunday, the Hollow Point, then finally the Styles Clash to win. Great stuff.

Afterward, the crowd chanted “Next World champ” at Styles. He responded “You’re damn right I am.”

8. Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly beat ROH World Champion Jay Lethal and Donovan Dijak (w/Truth Martini, Taeler Hendrix) . Fish and O’Reilly chopped down Dijak by kicking his legs. Later, the House Of Truth took over and Lethal hit the Lethal Combination on Fish then Dijak hit a mammoth chokeslam on his knees. But reDDragon rallied to eliminate Lethal from the ring and floor Dijak with Chasing The Dragon to win.

9. Michael Elgin beat Jay Briscoe, ACH, Silas Young, and Christopher Daniels to win Survival Of The Fittest 2015. Silas Young eliminated by ACH via German suplex pin after Young collided with Daniels. Daniels put Elgin and Briscoe through a table. ACH hit a 450 on Daniels but Kazarian distracted the ref. Sydal came out to brawl with Kaz. Daniels hit a low blow and the Best Moonsault Ever to eliminate ACH. Daniels managed to hit Angel’s Wings on Elgin, but he failed to land the BME and got kicked in the face by Elgin. A waiting Briscoe leveled Daniels with the Jay Driller to eliminate him. The match came down to Briscoe and Elgin. Some jackass started chanting “Elgin’s boring.” Elgin powerbombed Jay into the barricade. Elgin performed a Buckle Bomb, but the Spiral Bomb was countered into a Jay Driller for a very near fall. Briscoe tried another Jay Driller but Elgin countered with a Buckle Bomb and the Spiral Bomb for a near fall. Elgin then put Jay on the top rope, put him across his shoulders, and used a Burning Hammer to win. After the match, Elgin praised Jay and shook his hand. Elgin, who earned a title shot by winning Survival Of The Fittest 2015, said he’d face Jay Lethal in Japan for the ROH Title.
