ring apron. They battled out onto the ring apron and traded blows until Bonesaw booted Hurricane in the face and knocked him to the floor to win the match.
Bonesaw now earns a shot at the PWS Title whenever he wants, and Hurricane comes back in to raise his hand. Big Van Vader comes back out and hands Bonesaw his bonesaw, congratulates him on his win, and asks the fans one last time tonight what time it is. Of course we all know the answer.
"The Pope" Elijah Burke vs John Morrison
They do some chain wrestling to start off, exchanging takedowns and armdrags, but Pope decides to take a powder and slow the action down to keep from playing Morrison's game. The crowd chants "you still got it" for some reason even though I don't think either of these guys are even 30 yet. They go back and forth for a bit before Pope again bails out to the floor to play mindgames with Morrison. Morrison goes out after Pope, so Pope rolls back in to furstrate him. Morrison gets in and finally gets a hole of Pope, taking him to the corner and going up top for a ten punch count. Pope slips out from underneath Morrison and trips him up, making Morrison hit the mat hard. Pope puts the mouth to Morrison before getting a snapmare and a Flair kneedrop. Pope unloads with a series of jabs in the corner, but Morrison fires back with right hands and gets a sunset flip for 2. Pope lays Morrison out with a big boot to the face, but hesitates before covering and only gets 2. Pope starts putting the mouth to Morrison again as he continues drilling him with right hands, then gets him in a chinlock and cranks on it tight. Morrison fights out of the hold, so Pope hits a really nice German suplex and then flattens Morrison with an STO. Pope starts arguing with the referee and gets into a shoving match with him, allowing Morrison to roll Pope up for 2. Pope shoots a double leg and gets a foldover cradle on Morrison for 2, then gets a seated version of the surfboard. Pope unloads with more hard shots, but Morrison ducks one and springboards off the ropes with a leaping enziguiri. Morrison's on the comeback trail now, hitting a pair of clotheslines and a leg lariat, followed by a standing shooting star press for 2. Pope catches Morrison in a small package for 2, Morrison gets an O'Connor roll for 2, then a running kneestrike to the face for another 2. Morrison sits Pope on the top rope and lands a right hand that leave Pope hanging upside down outside the ring, but he pulls Pope back up and gets thumbed in the eye. Pope leaps over him, hits a sole butt, and a Flatliner for 2. Pope appears to have hurt his knee while hanging from the ropes, but he slaps Morrison in the face and uppercuts him in the jaw. Pope goes for the running double kneestrike in the corner nonetheless, but Morrison moves out of the way, hits a leaping enziguiri to the back of the head, and finishes Pope with Starship Pain.
Winner: John Morrison
Really good match, I thought they told a good story with this one and the crowd seemed really happy with it.
Rock & Roll Express vs Jay & Mark Briscoe
The Briscoes have Uncle Jethro in their corner, but it doesn't seem to help them much at the start because Ricky and Robert wrestle circles around them, including one fun spot where Robert backdrops Jay while he has Mark in a side headlock and then gives him a flying headscissors while rolling Mark with the headlock as well. Ricky comes in and goes to work on Mark, but Mark drills Ricky with a hard shot and chokes him on the ropes. Mark gets Ricky in a bearhug, then knocks Robert off the apron to draw him into the ring so he and Jay can switch places behind the referee's back. Jay picks Ricky up and slams him hard, he whips Ricky into the corner and charges, but runs into Ricky's boot and Ricky rolls to the corner to tag in Robert. Gibson takes Jay out and gets Mark in a sleeper, Jay comes in to try and break it up but he's intercepted by Ricky, and they nail Mark with the double dropkick for the win.
Winners: Rock & Roll Express
Well, the match was all of about five minutes long, but what do you expect at ths point? It was just cool as a fan of tag team wrestling to see these two teams in there together.
PWS Title Match: Kevin Matthews vs Colt Cabana
Matthews informs Cabana that "this isn't Ring of Honor, bitch! This is my house!" to which Cabana replies "I got fired from Ring of Honor! I got fired from WWE, I got fired from ROH, I got fired from TNA..." and then Matthews says "Hey, I got fired from WWE too!" The crowd reacts with a "you got fired!" chant that I guess is a babyface pop for both guys. Matthews lays in a couple of hard shots, but Cabana does some of his European stuff and rolls him up for 2. Cabana catches a boot, trips Matthews, and gets him in a side headlock. Matthews headscissors his way out, Cabana maneuvers his way out of the hold and sits on Matthews' face for 2. Matthews seems frustrated and rolls out of the ring to catch a break while the fans chant for Matthews, who drags Cabana under the bottom rope and chops him. Cabana gets Matthews in a headlock and takes him around the ring so fans can rub his head, but Matthews shoves Cabana off into the barricade and rams his face into the ring apron. They go back inside as Matthews continues the punishment, choking Cabana in the corner with his boot and then snapmares him and gets a standing Dragon sleeper. Cabana escapes that, but eats a leg lariat and Matthews covers for 2. Matthews casually goes to the second rope, but leaps right onto Cabana's boots, and Cabana starts his babyface comeback, unloading with jabs and the flip, flop n' fly. Cabana hits the Flying Apple, punts Matthews headfirst into the second turnbuckle, then covers for 2. Cabana measures Matthews and goes for the lariat, Matthews blocks that and runs to the ropes, but runs right into a flying butt butt that gets 2 for Cabana. Cabana signals that he's ready to put Matthews away... (Continues on next page)
