Joe Dombrowski introduced the show and hyped the matches for the night. They showed the announce booth with Aaron Maguire sitting in the back ground who looked perturbed because Johnny Gargano was taking his spot at color. He was in the booth because it was a qualifying match for the Number One Contendership Tournament. The match was “The Megastar” Marion Fontaine against “M-Dogg 20″ Matt Cross. Gargano gave his review of both wrestlers, giving them accolades. He did note he hasn’t had the time to grant Cross a title opportunity.
Cross snapped off some arm drags and pinned Fontaine in the corner. Cross hit a nice snap suplex. Dombrowski noted that Fontaine and Bobby Beverly have been attacked from behind. Gargano said that he could be the next target. Fontaine turned the match around by dropping Cross throat first over the top rope. Fontaine knocked Cross down and dropped an elbow on him. Fontaine clotheslined Cross and only got a two count after a pin. Gargano & Dombrowski combined to explain that Fontaine got his title shot a month ago by beating Cross. “M-Dogg” caught Fontaine with a bicycle kick. Cross hit a standing moonsault. Fontaine only got a two count after a death valley driver. Fontaine tried to super-plex Cross but he got knocked off the top rope. Cross played to the crowd and executed a shooting star press for the victory.
Analysis: Dombrowski & Gargano tried to cover for Fontaine by saying he trained “Lean” and has great cardio. I train that way too and I have more muscle than Fontaine even though I sit in an office all day long. Fontaine was sporting some new tights which is good considering he has a new persona. Both men were strong in the match which got overshadowed by the number of storylines Dombrowski & Gargano talked about even if they all applied to the match. Score: +1.
They showed the replay of Jason Bane beating Bobby Beverly the week before in the Number One Contender’s Tournament As much as I picked on ROH last Monday, I’d be a real homer if I didn’t mention the fact that this replay went a little long. But it’s only replay #1.
Hobo Joe & Gregory Iron were doing exercises in trust. Iron wanted Joe to fall into his arms from a riser. Joe expressed that he was a little worried. Iron caught Joe. Iron said that was the first step in taking the Tag Team Titles from Sex Appeal.
