    On a night ROH said goodbye to a legend, BULLET CLUB threatened to take every ROH championship! This past Saturday night at the Infinite Energy Center, AJ STYLES addressed the sold-out crowd with a heavy heart but was interrupted by old rivals and friends! Thanks to the BEST FANS on the PLANET for coming out in droves and proving that Atlanta is Ring of Honor country!

    DALTON CASTLE w/The Boys defeated COREY HOLLIS w/Trina

    What a year 2015 was for Corey Hollis! The former Top Prospect Tournament competitor has been honing his craft throughout the country and came to Duluth looking to pick up a signature ROH win against “The Party Peacock”! Hollis was game to fight and focused on Castle’s injured ankle but Castle was just too much and finished off Hollis with a Bangarang!

    AJ STYLES Says Goodbye

    The Gainesville, GA native took to the squared circle following a standing ovation. Styles thanked the crowd and stated that if they had questions, he had answers. But before anything could be answered, the ROH WORLD CHAMPION JAY LETHAL took to the ring! Lethal told the crowd that nobody wanted to hear what Styles had to say and that he would not be defending his championship in front of the Duluth fans!

    Very quickly after that, the ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION RODERICK STRONG took to the ring and told the crowd if Jay Lethal was not defending his championship, his match later tonight against NICK JACKSON would also not be with the title on the line. Before Strong could finish, he and the raucous crowd were hushed by the music of BULLET CLUB!

    “Machine Gun” Anderson, Doc Gallows, “Bullet Babe” Amber Gallows, and the Young Bucks told AJ Styles that there was nothing personal and everything that had done to Styles was strictly business! Then, Bullet Club’s attention turned to the ROH Champions! Bullet Club dressed down the champions, calling them cowards for reneging on their title shots! WAR MACHINE’s music hit and a massive eight-person brawl broke out!

    After the dust cleared, “P-Dogg” Mike Posey took to the ring with posse in tow and began to dress down Styles via rap. For his troubles, Styles, who had already made his way to the back by this point, executed a DEVESTATING STYLES CLASH on Posey and said goodbye to the crowd!

    ALL NIGHT EXPRESS (KENNY KING & RHETT TITUS) defeated CHEESEBURGER & MOOSE w/STOKELY HATHAWAY

    The Number One Contenders to the ROH World Tag Team Championships had their hands full in Duluth! ANX’s tag team experience took center stage as it took quick tags and continuity to defeat the team of MooseBurgers!

    CEDRIC ALEXANDER w/VEDA SCOTT defeated MARK BRISCOE

    “The Sussex County Chicken” Mark Briscoe has very quietly been on a roll in ROH SINGLES competition having not lost a fall since June 2015! That changed in Duluth when Cedric Alexander hit the LUMBAR CHECK following distraction from VEDA SCOTT and covered Briscoe for the 1-2-3!

    ACH, ALEX SHELLEY, & “REBORN” MATT SYDAL defeated “UNBREAKABLE” MICHAEL ELGIN & reDRagon

    In a match-up of two undefeated trios, ACH, ALEX SHELLEY, & “REBORN” MATT SYDAL took to the air to earn the victory over BIG MIKE & reDRagon following a back and forth battle! It took the finishing moves of all three men, including a Shooting Star Press from legal man Sydal, to finally score a pin fall on Elgin!

    Following intermission, SCARLETT BOURDEAUX announced that the ROH championship matches scheduled for the evening had been condensed into a four on four match, Champions versus Bullet Club with ALL CHAMPIONSHIPS ON THE LINE!

    WOMEN OF HONOR “BULLET BABE” AMBER GALLOWS defeated VEDA SCOTT

    In her WOMEN OF HONOR debut, “BULLET BABE” AMBER GALLOWS defeated VEDA SCOTT following a roll-up up using a handful of tights! TAELER HENDRIX joined BJ WHITMER and Ian Riccaboni on commentary as she scouted her WOMEN OF HONOR competition!

    JAY BRISCOE defeated WILL FERRARA, ADAM PAGE, “THE LAST REAL MAN” SILAS YOUNG, CAPRICE COLEMAN, and “THE HEAVY METAL REBEL” FRANKIE KAZARIAN in a Six-Man Mayhem match!

    The Jay Driller was the difference as the former two-time ROH WORLD CHAMPION JAY BRISCOE hit WILL FERRARA with everything but the kitchen sink in the middle ring! Of note in this bout, ADAM PAGE looked like he had an opportunity to earn a victory late in the match before he was viciously attached out of sight of Todd Sinclair by BJ WHITMER while CAPRICE COLEMAN and Ferrara were once again on the same page despite their crazy brawls!

    Following the match, Briscoe attempted to show his respect for Ferrara, whose heart and determination was on full display in Duluth, kicking out of several devastating moves! But Whitmer entered the ring and proposed that Briscoe JOIN THE DECADE! Instead of shaking his hand, Briscoe told Whitmer he was “number one” by use of the middle finger allowing a befuddled Whitmer to get socked by Page! After Page got the best of Whitmer following a RITE OF PASSAGE, STEVE CORINO made his way to ringside to shake Page’s hand!

    ADAM COLE defeated STEVIE RICHARDS

    “The Sussex County Chicken” MARK BRISCOE joined Riccaboni on the commentary headset for a match-up of men who seemingly have had parallel careers! Both Cole and Richards began their careers in Philadelphia and have used the super kick to great success! The former ROH World Champion had his hands full with the 25-year veteran but, after trading super kicks and Stevie Kicks, Cole pinned Richards following a brain buster to the knee!

    ROH CHAMPIONS (World Champion JAY LETHAL, World Television Champion RODERICK STRONG, and World Tag Team Champions WAR MACHINE) w/TAELER HENDRIX defeated BULLET CLUB (KARL “MACHINE GUN” ANDERSON, DOC GALLOWS, and the YOUNG BUCKS) w/AMBER GALLOWS

    In a night that was supposed to feature first-time title shots for all four members of the self-proclaimed BIZ CLIZ, the four members of BULLET CLUB now had a consolidated opportunity to win ROH gold!

    What might have happened had BULLET CLUB won?

    Shortly after Mr. Wrestling III returned to the commentary table, bedlam broke out! TAELER HENDRIX was quickly taken out by a targeted superkick! On the opposite side of the ring, JAY LETHAL connected with a retaliatory superkick on the Bullet Babe! From there, the action was fast and furious!

    BULLET CLUB used exceptional tag team wrestling with fast tags and great strategy to keep the ROH Champions in their corner for long periods of time. But ultimately, when things turned into a brawl, “WAR BEARD” HANSON and RAY ROWE brought the fight and earned the pinfall following their FALLOUT finishing maneuver!

    The ROH Champions left the ring, leaving the losing team, Bullet Club in the ring to collect themselves. What happened next has to be seen to be believed and will be available to view on ROHWrestling.com!
