Christian Cage vs. Adam Cole

The high-quality pay-per-view contest was a wonderful way to get the event started in front of a raucous Boston crowd. The sequences were fantastic, and the mentality was quite effective. Cole’s in-ring knowledge and willingness to trick like crazy and go unnoticed were demonstrated with a terrific finish that included him catching the rope with his leg to negate an attempted Killswitch, poking the eyes, and finishing with The Boom for the victory.

Winner: Adam Cole

Samoa Joe vs. Max Caster

Samoa Joe on his debut received a huge acceptance from the crowd that almost blew the arena’s roof off. Max Caster’s finest offensive was his clever rap, so he exploited that energy to overpower him. Joe looked incredible as always as he did great work even though it was just his third match in the past 2 years. Samoa Joe has qualified for the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament.

Winner: Samoa Joe

Captain Shawn Dean vs. Shawn Spears

After Captain Shawn Dean’s “win” over MJF, Shawn Spears wanted vengeance was in full form to destroy his opponent. But, sadly W Wardlow was backstage and spoiled everything Spears had in mind by beating the security personnel, while MJF was on commentary for the match.

Spears was already preoccupied as he was battling in the ring. But as Wardlow reached near the ring it distracted Spears which Shawn Dean took advantage of and rolled up Spears to win the match in an impressive fashion.

Winner: Captain Shawn Dean

Hardys vs. Butcher and the Blade in a Tables Match

Following Andrade’s huge win against Darby Allin last week, The Butcher and The Blade were forced to compete in a Tables Match against the Hardys. The tumultuous contest was far from ideal and much less so. It did, however, come to a close with another outstanding Jeff Hardy moment. From atop a ladder, Jeff hit a Swanton Bomb, putting The Blade between two tables for a satisfying win.

Winner: The Hardys

Hikaru Shida vs. Julia Hart

Julia Hart ran a close second to the previous champion. Hart appeared to be embracing her villain role, assaulting Shida before the bout and violating as much as she could. Shida, on the other hand, was too much for the competition, conquering with her Falcon Arrow finisher. Shida won the match and qualified for the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. 

Winner: Hikaru Shida

FTR vs. The Young Bucks for AAA and ROH Tag Team Championship

The much-anticipated rematch did not disappoint. The first few minutes of the bout were a true battle of wits, with two seasoned tag teams using their intellect to gain the upper hand.

The bout went into overdrive as both teams paid respect to Bret Hart. Dax received a hot tag and went all babyface on the Bucks, hitting them with a variety of strikes and techniques.

The Boston audience was on their toes for the closing minutes of this masterpiece, just as they were for the first. The Bucks landed a low blow on Cash Wheeler, then finished him out with their Big Rig finisher. However, autumn was approaching. The Bucks then executed a 450 splash followed by a Moonsault. But it was again a near fall.

The Bucks then cheated by whacking Cash in the head with the Ring Of Honor belt, followed by a roll-up. The pinfall was broken up by Dax. Cash was able to get his foot on the ropes just in time after a BTE trigger failed to put him away. Finally, FTR pinned Matt Jackson with their finisher. FTR ultimately defeated the Young Bucks to retain their AAA and Ring Of Honor Tag Team Championships, capping off a momentous week for the tag team.

Winner: FTR
