6. Nigel McGuinness d. Claudio Castagnoli to retain the ROH Pure Title after a “vicious” lariat” – Dog said that they each only used about 1 rope break. People around him liked the match, but he didn’t like it all that much.

Bobby Cruise announced that this is the largest ROH crowd in Manhattan to date! Return date of June 17th was also announced. It’s now intermisison time!

7. Austin Aries d. Ricky Reyes by DQ – Reyes had the dragon sleeper on, but Aries was in the ropes. Reyes refused to let go, so he was disqualifed. Short, but good match. Reyes beat Aries down after the match, until Strong and Evans made the save. The Briscoes then came down and attacked Gen Next, beginning the Gen Next vs. Briscoes match!

8. Roderick Strong & Jack Evans d. The Briscoe Brothers with a Phoenix Splash variation on the Ode to the Bulldogs – Dog felt it was better than he expected, and called it a really fun match. Briscoes worked over Jack’s leg for a while, but after a while longer, Jack stopped selling it. The crowd was super hot, and they all got a loud ROH chant after the match.

9. KENTA & Naomichi Marufuji d. Bryan Danielson & Samoa Joe when KENTA pins Danielson after “Go To Sleep” – Really solid match between all four. KENTA and Joe had some great exchanges. After the match, KENTA gets on the mic and said “I promise, I’ll be back soon”. Joe then got on the mic and said that KENTA may have won tonight, but he will never beat Danielson or Joe in a singles match. KENTA then takes the mic and says he doesn’t understand English, so he doesn’t know what Joe said. (Haha).
