    Ring of Honor's 13th Anniversary Spectacular is in the history books! It was a night of action that fans are still buzzing about. If you missed it, have no fear as you can order the replay by clicking here.

    Our opening contest saw Matt Sydal def. Cedric Alexander. Sydal was super excited for the chance to face off with the young and talented Alexander. Cedric, who was in a serious mode, seemed determined and focused on winning. In a back and forth contest, Sydal would win with the Shooting Star Press.

    (2) Moose def. Mark Briscoe. This was a shocker to some but not for Stokely Hathaway and Veda Scott. The big former NFL offensive lineman took everything the Sensei of Redneck Kung Fu had and kept coming. Moose opened a lot of eyes including those of ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe. Veda Scott would not allow Moose to shake Mark's hand, refusing the Code of Honor.

    (3) The Kingdom def. The Addiction, Karl Anderson. Flight issues prevented Doc Gallows from making it to Las Vegas but his partner "Machine Gun" Karl Anderson informed the world that he did not need a partner and would go it alone. This matchup saw the Addiction and The Kingdom take to the air hopes of winning but eventually Bennett and Taven would use a spike piledriver to put Anderson away and send a definitive message to the current IWGP Tag Team Champions and the world.

    (4) Roderick Strong def. BJ Whitmer.

    The bully of the Decade looked to quickly put away his former stablemate. But Mr ROH would prove why he truly is an elite talent and fought back with everything he had. Though Adam Page attempted to get involved, Strong would prove that he still is one of the very best today and gained a big victory.

    (5) ODB def. Maria Kanellis. Fans are still buzzing about the first ROH woman's match-up on Pay Per View. ODB came prepared for mental and physical war. Maria would shock everyone with her game plan. ODB would not only take home the victory, she would also take home the Jay Briscoe's Real World Title. This was wild and crazy and a definite must see!

    (6) AJ Styles def. ACH. Styles would come into this match very confident. As the IWGP Heavyweight champion, why wouldn't he? ACH came to win and almost accomplished his goal but ultimately "The Phenomenal One" proved once again why he may be the very best in the world.

    (7) reDRagon def. The Young Bucks to retain the ROH Tag Team titles. The career rivals known for providing matches of the year did not disappoint. Words can not do true justice for this one and it is definitely high atop the list of reasons to go out of your way to buy the replay. The Bucks came for a battle and they got one. They came for the ROH World Tag Team Championships but they came up short. reDRagon stayed one step ahead and retained their championship. While not the end of this rivalry, it was said reDRagon have declared victory in their war with the spectacular Young Bucks. MMA woman's pioneer Shayna Baszler was in the corner of reDRagon and would play a role in the outcome. It should be noted that the Knights of the Rising Dawn made their presence felt during this match with an appearance at ringside.

    (8) Jay Lethal def. Alberto El Patron to retain the ROH TV title. The self-proclaimed greatest first generation wrestler and the longest reigning ROH Television Champion of all time, Jay Lethal would defeat the Mexican legend Alberto El Patron. A textbook classic match up featuring two of the best professional wrestlers in the world was affected by the presence of the House of Truth. Did Lethal get that respect that he felt he deserved? Order the replay and you be the judge.

    -Samoa Joe returned to a hero's welcome. The longest reigning ROH World Champion informed the world that he was not here to simply say "hi"; he was here to regain the championship that he put on the map. The fans of Ring of Honor were happy to see Joe but one cannot imagine the locker room is so happy with the prospects of facing a motivated Samoan Submission Machine.

    (9) Jay Briscoe def. Hanson, Tommaso Ciampa and Michael Elgin to retain the ROH World Championship. Hard-hitting, intense, brutal and vicious are just some of the words that can be used to describe this match but none of them can truly put this bout in context. The race to end Jay Briscoe’s near two year streak of not being pinned or submitted was in real danger. The Knights of The Rising Dawn would jump the rails and get physical. They were met with the return of the monstrous Raymond Rowe. All three challengers fought as if this was their last chance, but Jay Briscoe showed once again why he is the man with the biggest win of his title reign, proving to have luck on his side in Las Vegas.

    As Briscoe was celebrating his win, the fans rose to their feet as Samoa Joe made his way to the ring, ending the night by going nose to nose with the World Champion. If you are a fan of the best wrestling on the planet, you must order the replay of Ring of Honor's 13th Anniversary Spectacular!
