Klein got the upper hand immediately and went to work on Iwatani. Klein got to the top in Iwatani and hit several blows from the mountain. Iwatani drove Klein away, but he returned to his top and hit another series of blows on Iwatani's midsection. Iwatani fled and Klein took a pair of Sling Blades. Iwatani placed Klein's stomach and then dropped above and pressed the double stomp. Iwatani insisted and told Klein to take it. Klein fired and grabbed the upper hand, because Iwatani could not stop him. They began to exchange punches and people did not care. This match seems a bit off in terms of being smooth.

(Radican's Analysis: It's slow and healing most, but it's finally taken. I enjoyed the last ten minutes or so of the match.There is no reason for this match to last only to take a triple threat in MSG between Lethal, Taven, and Scurll.)
Teth and Taven are dead. They looked at one another and Taven threw a piece of pendant on Lethal's face before helping back.
They went to a video package for the G1 Supercard of ROH. Ian Riccaboni introduced Mega Ran, which performed for ROH on the G1 Supercard. Mega Ran went out with his partner. He asked most people to make some noise for what they had seen for what they had seen so far. He threw a few things in the car. He asked fans to clap their hands and not be very keen. Then Mega Ran performed the Going in the Garden. Bully Ray drops and ends his performance.
Bully mentioned them. Ran said he can do this now if he does not get distracted. Ray tried to say that Ran was fat without calling him fat. Ray said that he probably played the games and said he probably used them as a character. Ran said he was playing D-Von. Bully Ray shoved down Ran and his partner and told them to go out. Ray said that he had no chill. Ray asked what they wanted to know about going to the Garden. Ray said he was the only person to perform in MSG. Ray said that everyone should kiss his ass. He told some little children that he would deal with them in the face. Ray said that no one is ready to face him in MSG. The fans chanted Flip. Ray said that you mean the guy with a busted knee. Ray gave an open challenge to anyone in the whole business of wrestling. Ray said he wanted Fight Street New York City. Ray said that you know exactly what I'm talking about. He said, I'll see you in the Garden, Punk. Ray's challenge is very specific.
(5) BANDIDO vs RUSH
Dalton Castle joined the commentary table. The fans woke up for both boys. RUSH refused to comply with the Code of Honor and ousted Bandido's attempt. They went on a quick turn on the ropes and traded arm drags. They both went for the dropkicks at the same time and came to a stalemate.

They went back and forth and hit a modified GTS. He ordered RUSH, which he suplexed in the turnbuckles. RUSH has entered Bull Horns in the corner to get the winner.
Winner: RUSH at 15:00 (*** ½)
Radican Analysis: It's really fun while it lasts, but the crowd does not sound to be in it's much. Castle added some commentary enthusiasm.
After the match, Castle got the ring after telling Riccaboni he had a great idea. The Castle said that RUSH is like a mountain of meat. He said since he came to ROH he was undefeated. He said he sees the challenge of RUSH. Castle said he wanted a fight against RUSH in the G1 Supercard. Rush grabbed the mic from the Castle. He asked the Castle who he was. Rush said he did not care if he wanted him one by one. Then he spoke in Spanish. He said to note no memory would happen. They went face to face. Riccaboni said that he felt the challenge was accepted. Rush grabbed a chair, but did not go after the Castle.
Riccaboni said he had updates. He said because Gresham was taken and behind him Young asked if he wanted to go. Young took his leg. We will not see that match. The Kingdom leaves the building so we can not see their tag match either. Riccaboni said that they have given them time to finish their main event. Silas Young dropped out to join the commentary team.
(6) ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS BRISCOES (MARK & JAY BRISCOE) vs. VILLAIN ENTERPRISES (PCO & BRODY KING) – LAS VEGAS STREET FIGHT
outside and began to wash the seats and the rings fans fired. Al four men took seats and started dancing to it. The rumors told King that wrestling with a broken hand during his Australian tour. The Briscoes got the upper hand and started working on the King. The king fired and removed Jay with a dive off the top. The PCO took Mark in the apron and drove him out to a table. King worked on Jay in the ring and nailed him to their hard chops. Jay has a chair that is aligned with his legs in the corner and King nailed him a big chairhot in the leg. Mark enters the PCO with a stick of Kendo from the outside, but does not sell PCO and follow him. Mark was able to drop the PCO into a barricade when he was charged with him.
Jay went for a Sleeping King, who alone won the ring. Then Mark entered and pressed him to the chair. The Brisco returned to work with the King. The Brisco built a table and a chair in the corners of the ring. King Jay answered and sent him to the chair in the corner. Then he pressed a huge DVD on Mark who sent him to a table in the corner. Jay bleeding came. Both teams strike the floor. The PCO followed Jay's cut. The king threw Jay on PCO swinging on a piece of broken table on his head. Jay got a stick of Kendo and cut PCO and King. Mark holds, but Jay does not intentionally strike a stick. The king got the stick and went to work at The Briscoes. The PCO is charged with Briscoes, which backdrops him onto the apron. Jay is bleeding like crazy while the fans woke up to Man Up. The Briscoes took the King and the PCO was first sent to the ramp of the entrance. The Briscoes double teamed King again and brought him down.
Jay looks like a crazy guy while he's working on KI inside the ring. Newsmen said there was blood everywhere in the ringside. Mark builds two tables on the side. King fought with Jay in the apron. He sent Jay back to the ring, but Mark came from the top and pinched him a blockbuster through both tables. Jay hit Jay-driller with King, but he was thrown out of the two. Both Briscoes acquired the Singapore cane. Some time ago they had the King with them and he told them to take it. Then the king took the double shot of the cane in front and back. The PCO returned to the ring and sold some cane shots from Mark and Jay. PCO cut the same stick of Kendo and beat both Briscoes with double clothesline. The PCO tried to rouse the King. Mark hits King with the broken end of one of the sticks. He then drove it out to the PCO's chest. It looks like PCO cuts.
The King threw Mark to the top in a pile of seats on the floor. That looks brutal. Jay hit a low blow to the King in the apron. You came back and King went into a tight looking piledriver to Jay who sent him to the table. That looks dangerous. The king set up a seat over Jay and PCO to enter an moonsault for the win.
Winners: PCO & Brody King at 20:00 to become the new ROH World Tag Team Champions (*** ½)
(Radican's Analysis: It's hard to watch at times with all the blood and dangerous stunts.The Kings Piledriver in Jay late in the match from floor aprons is really dangerous PCO and King are now replacing Briscoes getting the GOD in a title vs. title title in MSG. It is definitely a big win statement for Villain Enterprises and the high point of the show, though it comes after a long and tedious card.)
The fans chanted for PCO after the match as Riccaboni wondered who would be IWGP Hvt. Tag Team Champions heading to G1 Supercard on MSG next month.
Overall attitude: (n / a) – I will update my score tomorrow. It is difficult to process what happened during this event after it was running for about half an hour in its due date. The show was pretty good at times with some great matches, but the presence of Lethal and Taven went into a 60 minute draw bringing any momentum the show had stopped and hurt the matches that followed it.
They announced Twitter matches during the show that should have been given more focus such as Jeff Cobb Vs. Will Ospreay almost announced as what felt like an afterthought. In the fallout from Taven Vs. Lethal, it looks like ROH will place the Triple Threat match on MSG for ROH World Title with Scurll walking ROH World Title after Lethal vs. Taven finished.
This show is lacking in the spark and the booking seems to be worthless when the company really needs to click on all the cylinders that goes to MSG, feeling that they are just walking in if not so much. Castle vs RUSH on MSG? That is not very exciting. RUSH VS. Bandido is very good, but the band is still returning from Taven Vs. Lethal. I do not know who is facing Bully Ray, so it's hard to motivate his mystery of the NYC Street Fight match. The main event ended the show with a high note even though it felt too dangerous at times and Jay hangman like mad. Briscoes who are not tagged in the MSG show heading are also a very different decision.
