Welcome to our sanguinary sect of worship, feel at home in our black conventicle as we anathematize all of those who oppose us. Don’t summon the devil, don’t call the priests, if you need the strength, conjure me to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with the intro video.

Adam Cole vs. Christian Cage

Collar and elbow, into the corner and Cage breaks clean. Go-behind, waistlock takedown, riding Cole, he slips out, front chancery, side headlock, off the ropes, shoulder block, stalemate! Adam with punches, Christian sends him packing out of the ring and gives chase, cutting him off with a forearm!

Back inside, up top, jockeying for position and Cole gets him hung up in the Tree of Woe and puts boots to him before finishing him off with a superkick! Back outside, putting Cage into the barricade, whipping him hard into the steps and we go to break.

Back from commerical, Cage dives on Cole and but he sidesteps and both men are down and out! Back inside, enzuigiri from Adam, up top but Christian cuts him off with an upkick and climbs for mounted punches in the turnbuckles! Back and forth, lungblower cuts Cage off and gets Cole a two count!

Small package sets up an inverted DDT, Christian goes up top, nobody home on the diving headbutt! Basement superkick sets up a superkick, leaving knee the pad up, off the ropes... CAGE KICKS OUT OF THE KNEE! Off the second, Cole cuts him out of midair with a superkick!

Up top, Cage cuts him off, avalanche Frankensteiner... NOPE! Off the ropes, Adam with a pump kick, knee pad down, Christian ducks the Boom and hits the spear... SO CLOSE! Looking for the Killswitch, Cole with a poke to the eyes, off the ropes...

Adam Cole wins by pinfall with the Boom.

Post-match, reDRagon run down to beat Cage up but Jurassic Express even the odds and the tag teams brawl to the back!

Enter “Hangman” Adam Page.

He jaws at Cole about a title match and says he’ll give it to him, and it’ll serve as his punishment. Next week, in a live Rampage in Texas, they’ll have a match, but not a normal one, rather ina Texas Death Match! And if he was Adam Cole, he’d put his affairs in order.

We get a recap of the climax of Supercard of Honor.

Max Caster vs. Samoa Joe (Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Qualifying Match)

Caster pokes at a skeptical Joe who just drops him with a headbutt! Jabbing Max into the corner, putting boots to him, chops in the corner and a whip across. Snapmare and a chop, off the ropes with an elbow, and Caster goes to the floor to regroup. Samoa off the ropes with the tope and Max eats it full-on!

Caster gets Joe back inside and unloads with right hands and chops, but celebrates too soon and Samoa runs him over! Up top, Joe sets him up...

Samoa Joe wins by pinfall with the Muscle Buster, qualifying for the Owen Hart Foundation tournament.

Post-match, Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt appear on the tron.

Lethal says his new outlook is to do and say what he wants and he’s glad because for months he tried to call Joe and got nothing, because he only answers for billionares, and they should call him the Samoan gold digger. The worst part is if he knew he was coming he’d still have rolled out the red carpet for him.

Sonjay points out that he still can, and Jay says that next week in New Orleans, he’ll give him a present that he’ll never forget.

Commentary hypes up the rest of tonight’s show and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Blackpool Combat Club are interviewed.

William Regal says he’s off his nut with excitement and he feels sorry for Trent Beretta, but Wheeler YUTA has impress him and impressed Danielson, and he has to impress Jon Moxley. Jon says the forecast for Friday is bones cracking like thunder and raining blood.

Capt. Shawn Dean vs. Shawn Spears

Maxwell Jacob Friedman is on commentary for this one.

Circling, collar and elbow, go-behind, standing switch, Spears with a backbreaker and a mock salute! Stomping away, out and back in, a neckbreaker and the Chairman with a pin but he pulls Dean up and lies in wait. Picking him up, fireman’s carry and we go backstage where several security guards have been laid out.

We see Wardlow cutting a swath through security guards as he makes his way to ringside! Warlow’s presence is enough for Spears to get distracted...

Capt. Shawn Dean wins by pinfall with a schoolboy pin.

MJF and Spears storm off furious.

Best Friends are interviewed backstage.

Chuck Taylor gives Wheeler YUTA a talking to and says they’ve let him crash on his couch and paid for the tights he’s wearing, and there’s no reason he can’t be the best wrestler while being part of Best Friends. Trent Beretta says he doesn’t like him and tells him to look what he does to Danielson and maybe learn something.

Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti make their entrance to do the picture in picture gimmick and we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get a clip of Eddie Kingston, Ortiz, and Santana beating the Jericho Appreciation Society up earlier today.

They make their entrance and Eddie says we’re gonna talk now.

He calls Chris Jericho a two-faced coward and says it’s on sight. He can be with his wife and kids and he’s attacking, and that goes for 2.0 and Daniel Garcia (he knows where he lives!) and Jake Hager, so keep running. Mike Santana calls them the Jericho Bitch Society and says they better bring the hardest fight because this is what they do.

Angel Ortiz says to see them in New Orleans next week so they can have a six-man, but either way it’s on sight. Kingston says they’re gonna beat ass like Junkyard Dog.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, Tony Schiavone interviews Jade Cargill and “Smart” Mark Sterling on the stage.

Jade introduces her Baddie Section and we get a nice angle on several attractive women. Cargill tells us a baddie is a woman who knows her value and knows herself, and Sterling says it was hard to find good-looking people in Boston but Jade did it.

Marina Shafir may be a badass, but she’s no baddie, and Cargill calls her trash and says she’s tired of all these MMA losers coming into her ring on her show. Mark calls Shafir the problem, and Jade says she’s a problem solver.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman and Shawn Spears are updated and MJF challenges Shawn Dean to a match next week, and says he’ll injure him worse than combat ever did.

Butcher and the Blade (Andy “Butcher” Williams & Pepper “Blade” Parks) vs. Hardy Boyz (Jeff & Matt Hardy) (Tables Match)

Butcher and Blade break the legs off a table and use them to beat the Hardyz down during their entrance! Brawling all over, Butcher blasting Matt with a forearm through a chair! He goes to attack Jeff as well, but the Hardyz hit a double DDT on him! Blade comes back in, double-teaming Brother Nero into a table but not through it and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Matt wails on Butcher with a steel chair before setting him on a table. Cutting Blade off as he tries to make the save, headed up top, diving leg drop through the table...

The Butcher is eliminated.

Matt dives off the apron and goes through a table when Blade sidesteps! Passing Matt into the barricade, doing some hardcore Feng Shui, but Jeff Hardy pulls the table out of the way when they suplex him over the barricade! Jeff with the Manhattan Drop to the double leg drop, Twist of Fate on Blade!

Hardyz setting up two tables in the shadow of a ladder, setting Blade up on it, Jeff perches atop the ladder...

Hardy Boyz win, last eliminating Blade with a Swanton Bomb through a table.

Andrade Family Office make their entrance and make their way down the ramp—

Sting is here!

He advances, Andrade pulls the Bunny in front of him in an act of cowardice and Sting lets them pass.

Christian Cage and Jurassic Express are backstage.

Christian throws his drink and storms off, and Jungle Boy cuts a promo.

He says reDRagon have been champions around the world, but here things are determined by your record, and they’re not good enough to challenge for the titles, but since they keep getting involved, they’ll challenge reDRagon and put the titles on the line next week!

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get a video package for Nyla Rose vs. Thunder Rosa where they get dueling promos.

Tony Schiavone is backstage with Jamie Hayter and Toni Storm.

Storm offers a handshake but Hayter swats her hand out of the way and says “everyone loves Toni” stops with her, because she’s the only one that deserves to win. Storm says she’s going to win.

Hikaru Shida vs. Julia Hart (Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Qualifier)

Hart asks the Varsity Blonds to leave, handspring lariat, whip across, she goes for another but Shida scoops her up and puts her in the turnbuckles and follows it with a rising corner knee! To the floor, Hikaru with the step-up dropkick off the chair!

Julia takes things back inside and regains the momentum as we go to break.

Back from commercial, Shida hammering Hart with punches, grounding her, wailing away to absurd extents to where referee Aubrey Edwards has to warn her! Whip to the corner, running knee, straight suplex and she’s fired up! Gutwrench, Julia rakes the eyes, bulldog for two!

Up top, turning splash misses, Hikaru with a diving elbow and the spinning knee, drawing her up...

Hikaru Shida wins by pinfall with the Falcon Arrow, qualifying for the Owen Hart Foundation tournament.

Post-match, Serena Deeb tries to blindside Shida with a chair but she’s ready and meets her with the kendo stick for a stalemate!

Shane Strickland is interviewed backstage.

He says he and Keith Lee haven’t had the best week, but for now he’s gonna get ready because there’s stuff he needs to do.

He goes in a locker room but Ricky Starks and Will Hobbs follow and attack! Keith Lee evens the odds and we get a brawl! Lee puts Hobbs through a wall!

Commentary hypes up next week’s show and we go to break.

FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood) (c) vs. Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) (AAA / ROH World Tag Team Championships)

Wheeler and Matt to start, collar and elbow, struggling into the corner, Jackson turns him around and breaks dirty with a shove! Cash shoves him down even harder, tempers flare but the match stays in line. Leg pick, side headlock, reversed to a pin, reversed to a headscissors, shot off, shoulder block and Matt falls to the floor!

Jackson charges in, drop toehold, tag to Harwood, arm wringer but Matt backs him into the corner and tags Nick in. Headlock takeover from Dax, into a wristlock, Harwood claims Nick’s headband and jams it in his trunks before throwing it at Matt! Off the ropes, drop down, slide under, scoop and a slam!

Headlock takeover, headscissors, arm drag, Dax with an armbar! Into the Bucks’ corner, Harwood bails after the tag and all four men end up in the ring and we stalemate! Off the ropes, trips, all four men trading punches with abandon but Dax ends up isolated! Off the ropes, double hip toss into stereo dropkicks!

Same for Cash, double lariats too, but FTR rebound and have stereo Sharpshooters applied! Nick breaks it up with a well-placed wrench of the nose and Wheeler finds himself in a rough part of town! Corner strikes, cannonball / enzuigiri combo, working Cash over.

Matt doing Bret Hart’s five moves of doom and his entrance taunt and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Wheeler desperate for some separation, passing both Bucks to the floor and the path is clear! He dives for the tag but Nick takes Harwood out with a superkick! Springboard, Cash nails Nick with an uppercut and makes the tag! Dax in hot, big jabs and snap suplexes!

Clothesline sends Nick to the floor, working Matt over in the corner with uppercuts and forearms, whip reversed, small package... NOPE! Sunset flip for two, reversed, back roll, jackknife, bridge up, backslide blocked but Matt rolls around for two! Harwood snaps off a piledriver... NOT ENOUGH!
