Hosts: Ian Riccaboni, Quinn McKay
So we should be coming up on something interesting here as at least it should be time for the Death Before Dishonor fallout. It helps that TV isn’t your normal fallout so hopefully we can get something fresh a little faster around here. I’m not sure what to expect otherwise as I still need to get around to the pay per view, but it could make for some more interesting TV. Let’s get to it.
We open with the end of Rush winning the World Title from Matt Taven at Death Before Dishonor.
Video on the Six Man Tag Team Title match at Death Before Dishonor Fallout, focusing on Dragon Lee. Kind of at least, as the hosts said it would be but it comes off as just a regular video on the match.
Jay Lethal is worried about facing PJ Black (injury replacement) in the #1 contenders tournament and complains about it to Jonathan Gresham.
Video on Angelina Love cheating to win the Knockouts Title from Kelly Klein.
The announcers talk about the #1 contenders tournament.
Brian Zane from Wrestling With Wregret gives us the Top Five Things From Death Before Dishonor.
PJ Black is ready to face Jay Lethal in the first round of the tournament. Always bet on Black.
Coast To Coast is coming for the Tag Team Titles.
Tracy Williams is ready for a No DQ match against Flip Gordon.
Coast To Coast vs. Silas Young/Josh Woods
Young and LSG start things off with Silas bouncing out of a wristlock and they roll around the ring with a small package getting several twos each. Woods comes in to kick LSG down so Ali comes in for some grappling, which is just fine with Woods of course. Ali gets taken into the corner for a series of running forearms from Young but he’s fine enough to take Woods into the corner.
Woods suplexes his way out of trouble and the hot tag brings in Young to clean house. The hanging swinging neckbreaker gets two on Ali and everything breaks down. The backbreaker/clothesline combination sets up Rolling Chaos Theory for two on LSG and it’s a toss into a cutter to finish Ali at 8:00.
Result: Silas Young/Josh Woods b. Coast To Coast – Toss cutter to Ali (8:00)
Matt Taven wasn’t happy after losing the World Title.
We recap the first round of the #1 contenders tournament.
#1 Contenders Tournament First Round: PJ Black vs. Jay Lethal
Why they showed the result of this match in the previous recap isn’t clear. Jonathan Gresham is out with Lethal. They fight over arm control to start and roll into a standoff as the first gear continues. Black shoulders him down and gets one off a legsweep as the rapid fire takedowns send us into another standoff.
Lethal’s cartwheel into a basement dropkick has Black in trouble for the first time and Lethal stomps away in the corner. The Figure Four makes Black scream but he’s in the ropes in a hurry. Black grabs a reverse suplex into a dragon sleeper, followed by a double arm crank. The Rocking Horse hold keeps Lethal in trouble and we take a break.
Back with Black getting crotched on top, setting up a delayed superplex. They strike it out until Lethal dropkicks him to the floor for back to back suicide dives. The Lethal Combination sets up Hail to the King for two but Black pops up with a middle rope Spanish Fly for his own near fall. They fight on the top until Black knocks him down, only to miss the Placebo Effect (springboard 450). The Lethal Injection is blocked twice in a row so Lethal tries is a third time and connects for the pin at 15:42.
Result: Jay Lethal b. PJ Black – Lethal Injection (15:42)
