Winner by pinfall: Flip Gordon
Post Match: Members of the Bullet Club come down to ringside and attack Flip Gordon.
Backstage: Cody Rhodes is on camera saying Flip Gordon is delusional if he thinks he has a chance in his match at Final Battle. Saying he will never be able to take the 6-Man Titles. He finished with saying Flip is as naïve as Dalton Castle. Cody then kisses his Championship and that is ending to this week's ROH.
My thoughts: I enjoyed this week's episode very much. A ton of action and straight to the point. The crowd each & every time I watch is so into each & every match. ROH focuses on doing there main business inside there ring, and it's always a breath of fresh air to see. The very 1st contest was very intriguing, as it's always fun to see a 300+ pound man use his size not only with strength but athleticism of the top ropes. Very impressed with the moves put out by Bruiser. ROH using the 20 count is also fun to see, giving the guys more time on the outside. And the Main Event between Flip Gordon & Adam Page was amazing. Great way to end the show. They put on a ppv style match. Acrobatics and high flying maneuvers were all on point. A very great showing from all the talent in this week's ROH show.
