Card #12 SMOOTHIE KING CENTER NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA
THE CHOSEN BROS : MATT RIDDLE 2 & JEFF COBB defeated OI4K : DEZMOND XAVIER 1 & ZACHARY WENTZ 3
Went managed to force a rope break on a Riddle Triangle Chock, but a quick follow up Bridging German Suplex put Zachary down for the count. Xavier tried to break up the pin but took a Tour Of The Islands instead!
The Worldwide Desperado threatened to attack the Bros after the match, with a steel chair, but it was just a distraction. The Crist Brothers and Chris Hero blindside the Bros while they were focused on Callihan! A swarm of officials and security hit the ring before the assault could go very far....
JOHNNY GARGANO defeated SAMI CALLIHAN 3
Before the match, Callihan offered Gargano one last chance to join OI4K but Johnny wrestling politely turned him down. Not wanting another scrum like last match, referee Paul Turner ordered all other OI4K members to the back and away from ringside. This distraction allowed Gargano to get the jump on Sami and never let up with his high energy relentless offense. Before he knew it Callihan was locked in the Gargano Escape and had no choice but to tap out!!! Hero and the Crist brothers charged the ring after the bell, but the quick Gargano escaped through the crowd.
reDRAGON : KYLE O'REILLY & BOBBY FISH defeated by DQ DA HIT SQUAD : DAN MAFF 2 & MONSTA MACK 1
O'Reilly and Fish was all over the Squad from the opening bell and had the big guys off balance and reeling. Monsta Mack took the fight to the floor but was disqualified, by referee Todd Sinclair, when he hit Fish with a steel chair. The fight continued well after the bell and all the way into the back.
ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE MATCH JAY LETHAL 4 (C) defeated RODERICK STRONG 5
Incredible seesaw encounter, that could have easily gone either way. Referee Paul Turner 'almost' disqualified Jay for a Smash Into Ring Post, which he quickly followed up with a Lethal Injection for the win.
As Lethal celebrated in the ring with his title belt, he didn't notice the masked man who had slid in the ring behind him. It's......... DELIRIOUS! Lethal turned around and right into a face full of Red Poison!!!
DAVE 1 & JAKE CRIST 4 & CHRIS HERO defeated MARK 3 & JAY BRISCOE 1 & CLAUDIO CASTAGNOLI 2
OI4K interference saved Jake after a Jay Driller, Wentz distracted referee Todd Sinclair as Xavier pulled Jay out of the ring by his ankle. This brought out the Chosen Bros, who were attacked earlier by OI4K, and a full scale brawl erupted on the floor. Sami Callihan joined in and it was pure chaos, but in the ring Hero knocked Mark unconscious with a Death Blow and stole the match for OI4K!!!
The carnage continued well after the match, Mark was still out cold in the ring as the six OI4K members were getting the upper hand on Jay, Claudio and the Chosen Bros. The Smoothie Center roof almost blew off when Johnny wrestling ran out with a chair and started laying waste to OI4K! Sami led his Ohio brethren in a hasty retreat, as Gargano, The Chosen Bros and Jay Briscoe gave chase into the back.

Totally impressed with the New F'n Show... Spectacular title defense against Unbreakable Mike...
The seek and destroy tactics aren't really working for Sami and his Ohio Killers... They managed to win that big six man match, but they're obnoxious appetites has prompted some great talent to form an alliance of their own... With a united front standing against them, OI4K has to become more clever - It's time to divide and conquer...
The next show looks excellent... AJ is gonna put down Kazarian on his way to becoming the PHENOMENAL ROH Intercontinental champion... And DOA gets taught some manners by the Violent Artist, the Infamous Mr Fish and ADAM COLE BAY-BAY!!
OI4K was banned from the arena tonight, by Commissioner Jim Cornette, but showed up with tickets for six front row seats.
JAY WHITE 1 defeated JONATHAN GRESHAM 3
A Kiwi Krusher ended a quick but solid opener.
ROPPONGI VICE : ROCKY ROMERO & BERETTA defeated TOVARISHCHI : 'COMRADE' CHUCK TAYLOR 2 & ALEX KOSLOV 1
Roppongi Vice makes it two in a row after losing the first encounter to the Comrades. A double team Strong Zero put Taylor down for a two count, Rocky quickly tagged in and finished him with a Diablo Armbar.
EVOLVE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE MATCH TOMMY END 4 defeated ZACK SABRE JR. 6 (C)
A third Owari Death Foot Stomp was finally enough to put Sabre down for the three count and win Tommy the Evolve title!
Six-Man Tag Team Match UNDISPUTED ERA : ADAM COLE 2 & reDRAGON : KYLE O'REILLY 2 & BOBBY FISH 3 defeated D.O.A. : HOMICIDE 3 & DA HIT SQUAD : DAN MAFF 1 & MONSTA MACK 4
Adam Cole hit a Florida Key on Mack to finish a wild match!
AJ STYLES 3 defeated by DQ KAZARIAN 4 /w/ Christopher Daniels
A very good match that was marred by the interference of The Fallen Angel. P1 looked to have the match won after a sick Styles Clash, but before referee Todd Sinclair could finish the three count Daniels entered the ring and smashed Styles in the back of his head with the Intercontinental title belt!!!
After the bell, Daniels and Kazarian put the boots to a down AJ, until Jay White ran out and chased off the Addiction.
ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE MATCH 'DEM BOYS : JAY 1 & MARK BRISCOE 3 (C) defeated THE CHOSEN BROS : MATT RIDDLE 4 & JEFF COBB 1
Both teams kept their eyes on OI4K, sitting in the front row, and both had words with OI4K all during the match. In the end it was Mark scoring the pin on Riddle after a crazy Froggy Bow!
After the match the Briscoes leaned over the rope facing OI4K, holding their belts over their heads, taunting Sami's bunch. Several choice words were exchanged, until OI4k jumped the barricade and swarmed the ring, attacking both the Briscoes and the Chosen Bros!!!! The six on four odds eventually was too much and OI4K started to have their way, until Johnny Gargano hit the ring!!! The Swiss Cyborg quickly followed suite and the six on six brawl was on..... Security and officials stormed out in force as we... fade to black.
Totally stoked that End won the Evolve title... And that brutal six man tag match was tons of fun... Brutal win for the Era - Shock to the System BAY-BAY!
Not real surprised that Kazarian took the cheap way out against AJ (with an assist from Daniels)... Interested to see how Styles and White fare as partners... Hopefully better than Sabin and White are making out in my Climax tag tournament...
And just as I thought... OI4K managed to surrender their numbers advanced simply by pissing off too many people... Now they're facing a unified force of very capable talent... Unless there are some covert activities taking place, I think Sami's crew is in trouble...
Lots of possible directions some of these angles could take... Exciting show!
