RING OF HONOR TELEVISION
2013 Season Episode 15
The show opens with ROH World Tag Team Champions, Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team, and the number one contenders, the Young Bucks, in the ring. Introductions are made for this singles match between Shelton Benjamin and Matt Jackson. Before the match can start, matchmaker Nigel McGuinness intercedes: "Excuse me one moment gentlemen. Seeing as this is a one on one match, I'm going to ask Charlie Haas and Nick Jackson to leave the ring area. I don't want a repeat of what happened last week."
Haas is angry but Nick nods his head and leaves. Haas is finally coaxed to the back by some referees.
Shelton Benjamin def. Matt Jackson by pin
Jackson jumps Shelton during the Code of Honor and has him stunned, getting a couple of early pin attempts. The two men exchange offense but eventually Benjamin starts battering Matt. Three consecutive turnbuckle powerbombs followed by a tombstone piledriver and Shelton gets the win.
Adam Cole def. Michael Elgin by pin
Elgin overpowers Cole early and hits him with a series of high impact moves. Cole turns things around after superplexing Elgin who was going for a deathjump. Elgin never gets back into the match and Cole utilizes the Florida Key for the huge win.
Veda Scott interviews ROH World Heavyweight Champion Cedric Alexander. Cedric addresses Rhino's comments from last week: "Rhino, you say you're the true world champion in ROH? As far as I'm concerned, since I beat the man you never could, that makes me the top champion around here."
