The Kingdom (Michael Bennett & Matt Taven w/ Maria Kanellis) def. The All Night Express (Kenny King & Rhett Titus) in a Proving Ground Match via pinfall on Titus.
– Adam Cole came out at the end and shoved King off the top rope as he and Titus were going for their finisher to set up the ending. The Kingdom celebrated in the ring for a minute, then all left except Adam Cole who continued to mug for the crowd. Matt Jackson ran out and superkicked him down then left, then came back when Cole got up and did it again. Cole pulled himself to the corner and demanded Jackson face him in a match.
“You never know who may be in such inner pain that they are contemplating suicide. Happy on the outside does not equal happy on the inside. Be kind to everyone – you may just change one person’s mind. September is Suicide Prevention month . If I don’t see your name, I’ll understand. May I ask my family and friends wherever you might be, to kindly copy and paste this status for one hour to give a moment of support to all of those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just needs to know that someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune. I hope to see this on the walls of all my family and friends just for moral support. I know some will!!! I did it for a friend and you can too. You have to copy and paste this one, NO sharing”
ROH Tag Team Title Match: Champions The Addiction vs. The Kingdom w/Maria Kanellis vs. The Young Bucks:
This was originally the Addiction vs. The Kingdom, but the heel steams were dicks and the Kingdom cost the Bucks the titles on TV, so they got added to the match. We had the usual multi-man match stuff at the beginning until it settled down and they got the heat on the Bucks. They then made their comeback, hit superkicks and all of their usual non-big move trademark stuff. Maria tried to distract them, which worked and allowed Taven and Bennett to attack. It didn’t last for long as the Bucks were able to kick their asses, and then the Addiction returned. It was the segment with the Addiction vs. Bucks that made me really want this to be a regular tag. It broke down into the big move buffet, superkicks, finishers and EVERYONE in the match was down. Then we got more superkicks and finishers, Maria’s ass appeared and Daniels took her out, which pissed of Bennett and we got a ref bump…. UGH. A man in a red mask arrived and mocked being Chris Sabin, and attacked the Addiction. The Bucks ran wild, hit the Meltzer driver but Taven had blind tagged in and picked up the pin off of a roll up. The match just didn’t play to me due to the bullshit. I love the Bucks, I love car crash matches, but this just felt like doing shit, and then the ref bump, the KRD deal, and then the least interesting team won the titles. The live crowd seemed to really like it, and I didn’t think it was bad at all but I personally never got into the match like I thought I would. Unfortunately it was a lot of what I thought it would be. It was fun and there was constant movement, but it got to a level, stayed there and then the shenanigans took me out of it. Basically there was too much going on, and I have just had my fill of overbooking.
