Know the Truth

We go to a video from Eric Young who says that everything that he’s gotten in this business he’s earned the hard way, the old fashioned way, and the right way. He’s not political and never have been, never will be and he’s not a kiss ass. He’s not going to wait outside someone’s office to pitch them an idea that they don’t want to hear. He’s not an ex-football player or MMA guy who stumbled upon something as a way to make money when he’s done. He’s not a mark, a skinny ass who got over on the internet. He’s a professional wrestler and everything he’s got he’s earned it. And people who really know who shared a ring with him and know the truth, the truth is that he’s the best all-around performer that anybody has ever seen and if you don’t think that now, you will. In the end, Jay White has two things; his word and his reputation, and when you truly love something, you’re willing to die for it. So later tonight, we will find out the lengths that Jay White is willing to go to, to defend his reputation.

JONAH vs. Black Taurus

JONAH comes out with a bull skull around his neck as a way to play ‘mind games’ with Black Taurus, but stomps on it and destroys it before the match starts. They start the match with a hard lock-up and go into the corner before Taurus breaks out and delivers knife-edged chops. JONAH challenges him to shoulder block him down but knocks Taurus to the outside with a clothesline. Taurus knocks JONAH into the post followed by a couple of dives before heading back inside the ring. JONAH catches Taurus and press slams him into the top turnbuckle and into the mat. JONAH keeps Taurus down to the mat with a waist lock before knocking him down with a back elbow. Taurus comes back with a dropkick, reverse sling blade, and crucifix bomb for a two count. JONAH comes back with a splash in the corner, a headbutt, and Thesz presses before Taurus trips JONAH in the corner and hits a twisting senton for a two count. They continue with the headbutts, before JONAH press slams Taurus off the top rope, followed by a flying Thesz press and a powerbomb for a two. JONAH goes to the top and hits the Tsunami top rope splash for the win.

Winner: JONAH by pinfall at 8:08

Dead Weight

Gia Miller is backstage congratulating Jake Something on his win tonight but asks if he thinks he has what it takes to defeat Trey Miguel for the X-Division Championship. Something says he beat three of the finest and he can’t wait to find out what he can do against Miguel, but Miguel interrupts him and says he has no intention of losing his title. Ace Austin and Madman Fulton interrupt them and Austin says Something can get lucky in a multi-man match, and one-on-one he’s a loser. Miguel defends Something, and Austin says that must be because his old friends dropped him like dead weight. Miguel suggests a tag match for this Thursday, and Austin agrees.

Eric Young vs. Jay White

Young goes at this alone, as Joe Doering and Deaner head to the back during his entrance. They start the match taking each other down with shoulder blocks, before White whips Young into the corner and delivers chops, until Young stops him and tries to suplex him before choking him out in the corner. White comes back with a back body drop before tossing Young to the outside where he drives him into the apron, before chopping him and throwing him back inside where there are more chops. Young comes back by whipping White into the bottom turnbuckle before choking him up in the corner. White comes back with a DDT as the crowd gets behind him with a Switchblade chant. White hits a twisting suplex for a two count before attempting the Blade Runner. Young gets out, but White chokes him out in the corner. Young comes back with a DDT of his own, followed by an Air Raid Crash for a two count. They start measuring each other before doing a chop exchange, with White getting chopped to the outside. White goes back in, and they continue before White knocks Young down off the top turnbuckle, but Young bites White off and hits a flying elbow drop for a two count. White comes back with a Uranage for a two, followed by a Saito suplex. They get on the apron, where White hits a Flatliner. They continue back on the apron fighting back and forth before Young delivers a piledriver, knocking both men to the outside. They head back inside where they try multiple pine attempts before White hits a half-and-half suplex followed by the Blade Runner for the pin.

Winner: Jay White by pinfall at 12:12

Slowing Down Speedball

Mike Bailey is seen leaving the building, but Ace Austin stops him and asks him to be his tag team partner this Thursday against Jake Something and Trey Miguel. Bailey appreciates it but says he didn’t come here to be in a tag team. Austin and Madman Fulton say it’s important to have the right type of people to watch their back. Bailey says Austin and Fulton have a great dynamic and he doesn’t want to get in the way. Austin says he overheard Something, and Miguel says some things he won’t repeat but was disrespectful to Bailey and says to at least give this a try, and Bailey agrees to it.

ROH Women’s World Championship: Deonna Purrazzo (c) vs. Miranda Alize

This was an open challenge for either championship that Purrazzo holds, but the story here is Alize was in the finals to crown the first-ever ROH Women’s World Champion losing against Rok-C, so she points to that to start the match, opposed to the AAA Reina de Reinas Championship. Alize starts quick with a takedown and pin attempt before they go back to the mat with submission attempts. Alize comes back with dropkicks and chops on the ropes, before knocking Purrazzo to the outside where she’s met by a dive from Alize. Alize throws Purrazzo back in for 2 count, but Purrazzo comes back and stops her with a pump kick before going after Alize, putting her in a submission hold. They fight on the ropes with a couple more pin attempts, but Purrazzo stops her again with another boot. Alize comes back with a spiked rana off the ropes, as they get on their knees and exchange strikes. Alize keeps Purrazzo in the corner, hitting a running boot for a two count. Purrazzo comes back with a suplex for a two before Alize twists her into the Miranda Rights. Purrazzo dodges Alize’s shining wizard and puts on an armbar as Alize immediately taps out.

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo by submission at 7:26, to retain

Drinks on Us

Gia Miller is backstage with Chapel Hart who says they are here to support Mickie James tonight, as James comes in and says they killed it tonight. Chelsea Green comes in and wishes James luck, and James says she knows their match didn’t go as planned so after tonight, she will give her another shot. Chapel Hart says later tonight they will go out for drinks as all the ladies get excited.

IMPACT Digital Media Championship: Matt Cardona (c) vs. Jordynne Grace

Matt Cardona comes out in full heel mode, flipping off the crowd. Cardona starts the match putting his hand out and asking for a good clean fight, but Grace attacks him and goes for the early pin attempts. Grace hits a back elbow and jumps on Cardona’s back and tries to bring him down, before hitting a vertical suplex for a two count, as Cardona heads to the outside for a breather. Grace chases after him before they head inside where Cardona pushes the referee Brian Hebner in between them to take advantage and choke Grace in the corner. Cardona starts tossing Grace into the corners, but Grace tries a comeback before getting suplexed into the corner. Cardona gets in her face and screams that he’s the champion, but Grace comes back with a sliding lariat and a spinebuster for a two.

Cardona sets up for the Radio Silence, but Grace dodges it and hits double knees and a sliding elbow in the corner, knocking Cardona in the outside. Cardona holds up a chair, but Grace hits a running boot into it knocking Cardona down. Grace picks up the chair and throws it inside, but Hebner takes it away from her causing Cardona to try and roll her up for a pin, but Grace kicks out. Cardona flips off the camera and grabs the chair, but Grace stops him by hitting a low blow, causing the disqualification.

Grace grabs the chair and smacks Cardona in the back with it before he takes his title and heads to the back.

Knockouts & Knocked Out

Gia Miller is backstage with Tasha Steelz and Savannah Evans and says Tasha must be feeling confident after getting a pinfall over Mickie James. Tasha says that was just a small preview of what she’ll do tonight because tonight is the last night that James will call herself the Knockouts World Champion. Tasha sees she got Chapel Hart and Chelsea Green cheering her on tonight, but it won’t be nothing after she beats her tonight. We hear someone screaming for help, as the camera runs to see what happened. We see it was Chris Sabin who is standing over an unconscious Eddie Edwards.
