We’re still here at the UWM Panther Arena in Milwaukee, Wisconsin! Taz, Excalibur and Chris Jericho are here to commentate tonight and as always we head straight to the ring!
Game #1. Andrade el Idolo vs. Rey Fenix
Both men are wearing white… THERE WILL BE BLOOD. I am joking. Andrade starts with a stiff forearm but Fenix responds with a springboard hurricane. Hurricanrana by Andrade and we have a look down! Backward spinning kick by Fenix and a rebounding back heel strike. Fenix is looking for a suplex by Andrade reversed to a suplex. Another. Searching for the three amigos, but Fenix reverses the third one into three amigos. Fenix goes up to the top but Andrade rolls out.. but Fenix still hits a dive senton about 10ft away! Back in the ring and Fenix hits a high angle German suplex with a bridge for a two count. Running elbow by Fenix but Andrade throws Fenix to the outside and he lands hard. Andrade follows and throws Fenix shoulder first down the steps. Andrade recovers a two count in the ring followed by a sideways headlock while we are in PIP. Andrade leads and Fenix follows. Andrade pulls Fenix’s legs and hits a double stomp on a draped Fenix for a two count! Double jump arm drag by Fenix followed by a double stomp. Fenix heads up and hits a missile kick that blocks from the top rope! Two matters. Rolling thunder cutter by Fenix! Two matters. Fenix goes for a frog that splashes from the top but Andrade drops to his knees for a two count. Fenix hits an enziguiri and tries to step into the ropes but Andrade crotchs him on the top rope. Both men are now on the apron and Andrade looks for the running knees but Fenix moves! Holy cow that was absolutely brutal. Fenix with a double dipping stomp to Andrade’s back on the outside! Fenix is working to get Andrade back in the ring, but both men are working here. Andrade finally arrives and Fenix climbs upstairs looking for a swanton bomb…and misses! Andrade hooks the leg but only gets a two count. Both men are outside now and we kill time again during the PIP. Andrade puts Fenix on the top rope as we head into a full commercial break. Back from the break and Fenix hits a reverse Spanish fly from the top! One, two, no! Jose passes the tablet to Andrade but Aubrey catches him and throws the tablet. Andrade’s low kick attempt is also blocked. Fenix and Andrade’s double-jumping spinning heel kick heads to the outside. Diving sent out by Fenix. Aubrey tries to break up the fight between Alex and Jose and we see RUSH! Rush throws Fenix straight into the yam bag and backs him into the ring. El Idolo d’Andrade finishes it.
Winner: Andrade el Idolo
Rating: ***3/4. This match was full speed ahead and even though the ending felt a bit flat, the action was there the whole time. Fenix is so good and I’m happy to see Andrade take a big win. Personally, I would have liked to see Rush do something other than a low blow, but that’s just me. Lucha Brothers vs Le Faccion Ingobernable? Yeah man, sign me up for that.
Rush and Andrade pose as they rip off Fenix’s mask! Here is Penta to do the backup.
Eddie Kingston says he wants to taste Jericho’s blood at Blood & Guts next week.
Keith Lee and Swerve are here and Swerve says that while they disagree, they’ve been on a roll lately. Keith Lee isn’t sure they’re on the same page, but they have to keep winning.
Game #2. Serena Deeb and Mercedes Martinez vs. Laynie Luck and Sierra
Anyone else completely forgot that Mercedes was the ROH Women’s Champion? Waist lock by Sierra but Deeb immediately locks in an abdominal stretch. Deeb’s tough chops but Luck gets the tag. Mercedes is also in the game and locks up a kimura. Luck with a roll up gets one. Spine Buster by Mercedes but Deeb scores. Inverted Indian Death Lock by Deeb as Sierra walks in and blasts her spine on Luck. Luck hits the ropes and Mercedes gets the tag. Flying forearm by Mercedes but Deeb gets the tag and it’s a combination clothesline and dropkick in the corner. Flying elbow to Luck’s back. Stereo Brass City Sleeper and Serenity Lock get the double tap fairly quickly.
Rating: *1/2. Lying squash, but I’m interested in the Martinez/Deeb dynamic and it’s nice to see the ROH title again.
Tully Blanchard Enterprises is back, baby! Kaun, Toa and Brian Cage are ready to take over. Speaking of Ring of Honor…
Jonathan Gresham is here with Lee Moriarty and Moriarty thinks he deserves a title shot. This is Tully Blanchard! Tully says his guys deserve the shot instead, but Gresham challenges Tully’s guys to a match against himself and Lee Moriarty. Did AEW just remember that ROH existed?
Game #3. The DKC vs. Hook
DKC is a bad man, but he’s taken down early as Hook goes for a knee bar. DKC gets to the ropes and blasts Hook with a forearm. Hook responds with heavy knees and body shots. Uchimata by Hook but DKC responds with heavy chops. Hook is not happy. Hook ducks under a chop and hits an overhead throw. Crossfaces by Hook. Hook gets the hooks and locks the RedRum. That’s it.
Classification: NR. Squash City, Jones.
Game #4. Cash Wheeler vs. Jeff Cobb
Caprice is here in the comments! Swap shoulder blocks to start before Cash hits a low dropkick. Cash goes for a drop toe hold but Cobb doesn’t bite. All-in comeback by Cobb followed by a forward chancery. Cash goes for a headlock, but Cobb responds with a side-rolling back suplex. Both men on the outside now as Cobb runs Cash into the ring post first. Cobb now focuses the attack on Cash’s lower back. Cobb goes surfing and stops Cash’s comeback attempt with a few hammer blows. Cash comes to the apron but Cobb catches him and hits a delayed vertical suplex. Cobb reverse chin lock followed by some chest stomps. Canadian backbreaker by Cobb as Cash tries to reach the ropes. Silver twists in the rear and locks into a bare rear choke. Cobb fires back at the turnbuckle but Cash doesn’t let go. Cobb fights back with some hip attacks. We trade clenched fists and now we trade elbows. Cash backslide attempt but Cobb doesn’t move. Cash fights back with elbows and chops.

One, two, no! Cash reaches for a short arm clothesline but Cobb moves. Moonsault by Cobb misses. Island tour by Cobb but Cash rolls. One, two, no! Dr. Bomb attempt by Cobb but Cash reverses into a Hurricane for a two count. Back drop from Cobb followed by a German suplex release. Tour of the islands! One two three.
Winner: Jeff Cobb
Rating: **3/4. Pretty decent game here, but felt like he never really hit his stride. AEW made FTR feel important to Cash. Losing here surprised me, but I guess you have to build Jeff Cobb for the fans who might not know him.
Great-O-Khan is there but Dax attacks from behind. The United Empire is now attacking FTR and Best Friends are there too! Ospreay and Orange Cassidy team up as the rest of Best Friends take on the Aussie Open. Eddie Kingston is here and he’s attacking Jericho! Jericho and Kingston fight through the crowd. Dax has taken off his belt and is whipping everyone in sight. Jericho can’t get away from Kingston and the referees are struggling to break that down. Piledriver from Dax to Kyle Fletcher! Eddie Kingston is also very keen on stabbing Jericho with a pen.
Final Thoughts: Definitely a one game show here. Fenix vs. Andrade was a great way to start, but it felt like the show died down afterwards. I’m excited for Forbidden Door, but I don’t think this show has done anything to increase that level of excitement. On the other hand, I’m very happy to see that Tony remembered he owned Ring of Honor, so maybe that lays the groundwork for rebranding? 6.75/10.
