Commentators: Ian Riccaboni, Caprice Coleman, Colt Cabana
Hosts: Ian Riccaboni, Quinn McKay
We are FINALLY at a new show with something from New Orleans instead of Las Vegas and the Death Before Dishonor Fallout show. I’m not sure what to expect from these shows but that isn’t the best feeling in the world. You never know what you might get on one of these shows but at this point I’m going to assume that it won’t be the most entertaining thing in the world. Let’s get to it.
We see the end of a battle royal with Silas Young winning a shot at the World Title, which will be tonight’s main event.
The hosts talk about Jonathan Gresham turning heel recently, meaning it’s time for the new Gresham to face his former mentor.
Alex Shelley vs. Jonathan Gresham
Shelley works on the arm to start but Gresham is just fine with the technical stuff of course. Back up and Shelley gets creative with a hammerlock abdominal stretch for a little twist on some classics. The arm is sent into the corner but Gresham dropkicks the knee out as we take a break.
Back with Shelley going Cabana with the Billy Goat’s Curse into a Rocking Horse, followed by a quick rollup for two. Gresham starts in on the arm and almost goes Pentagon off a hammerlock. With the arms still trapped, Gresham pulls on the leg at the same time and even gets two off a rollup. Some more armbarring ensues as Shelley can’t figure out what to do here.
The armdrag into the armbar stays on the arm but Shelley throws him down and we take another break. Back again with Gresham small packaging him for two and frustration is setting in. They go to the mat for a battle of rollups for two, with something close to Zack Sabre Jr.’s European Clutch giving Gresham two more. Shelley’s Sliced Bread is blocked so he grabs a fisherman’s neckbreaker instead. Gresham tries the Octopus but Shelley reverses into a quick cradle for the pin at 14:32.
Result: Alex Shelley b. Jonathan Gresham – Cradle (14:32)
Post match Gresham goes to grab a chair but Lethal breaks it up. Shelley offers a handshake and everything is cool.
Shane Taylor wants to be the modern Muhammad Ali by changing the game forever. The TV Title is just the beginning.
Someone attacked TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia. O’Ryan needed to be taken away but Marseglia and Matt Taven want answers.
Marseglia is all cryptic about the truth being a knife.
Special shows are coming!

We look at Rush winning the World Title at Death Before Dishonor.
Ring of Honor World Title: Rush vs. Silas Young
Rush is defending and wastes no time in knocking Young into the corner. The Bull’s Horns is broken up with a spear though and Silas hammers away. Young talks a lot of trash and takes it to the floor to send Rush into the post. Back in and Young stays on the ribs by driving him into the corner and getting a slightly delayed one off a suplex. The chinlock goes on and we take a break.
Back with Young yelling at the referee so Rush spits at him and snaps off a German suplex. Running knees put Young on the floor as Rush gets to start a comeback. The running kick in the corner lets Rush hit the Tranquilo pose but Young is back with the Regal Roll. The springboard moonsault out of the corner gives Young two so Rush is right back with a suplex into the corner. Bull’s Horns retain the title at 11:03.
Result: Rush b. Silas Young – Bull’s Horns (11:03)
