Welcome to our exclusive live ongoing play-by-play coverage of ROH's Tenth Anniversary. Please use the links above and below to follow along with this particular match. Continue to refresh the page for the latest updates.
The stream has begun (at least the audio portion of it). Bobby Cruise welcomes fans to Ring of Honor's Tenth Anniversary, and lets them know that things will be getting under way momentarily. He introduces the commentary team for this event, Nigel McGuinness and Kevin Kelly. This leads us into an opening video package.
When we come back into the arena, Kevin Kelly and Nigel Mcguinness are standing in the middle of the ring, and Nigel's getting a lot of love from the crowd. Cary Silken also gets a little love in the form of a chant from the crowd.
Kelly welcomes everyone to the show before introducing his broadcasting partner, Nigel McGuinness. They hype the TV Title match, the Tag Team Title match, and the main event of Davey Richards and Kyle O'Reilly vs. Eddie Edwards and Adam Cole.
Nigel says ten years ago, sports entertainment had almost won the war, but ten years later, Ring of Honor is still kicking, and it's because of the people who built the company, and the fans that supported it. It looks like we'll get tag team action to begin the show as we cut to a video package highlighting the events that have led up to the All Night Express vs. Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team
The All Night Xpress vs. Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team
Rhett Titus and Kenny King are the first men to make their way to the ring, and they get a huge pop from the crowd, many of whom are likely happy to see Rhett Titus back from injury.
Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team are out next, and they get a mixed reaction, probably due to their actions in their match against the Briscoe's at the last ROH iPPV.
The tension between all four men is evident as they have to be held apart by the referee before the match even begins.
Titus and Benjamin start things off for their respective teams. Haas shoves Titus from behind, and this allows Shelton to come in with an attack from behind. Shelton beats on Titus in the corner for a bit, but Titus turns it around and lays in some nasty chops. Titus hits a corner clothesline and nails a bulldog for a quick near fall. King tags in and works over Shelton's arm, taking him to the mat with an arm bar.
Benjamin fights up to his feet and out of the hold, putting King in a headlock. King sends Benjamin off the ropes and eats a big shoulder block. King responds with a big hip toss before getting hit with a blatant low blow right in front of the referee. Haas tags in and hits Kenny with a big right hand to the face.
Haas continues the assault, kicking away at King, and the New York fans don't seem to like it. King is able to respond with a beautiful dropkick before tagging out to Titus. They go for a double team move but Haas fights it off. They come back with a double team sequence, snapping Haas' neck across the ropes and hitting him with a neckbreaker. They then turn to Shelton and beat on him in the corner before King hits a nice back heel kick and both members of WGTT are on the outside. King and Titus hit stereo dives to the outside on top of their opponents to a big pop from the crowd.
Back in the ring Titus kicks away at Haas until Haas makes his way to the ropes. Haas takes a cheap shot at King to distract the ref and allow Shelton to come in from behind to attack Titus' injured knee. Haas turns back to Titus and takes his knee pad off before kicking and wrenching away at his knee. Haas picks Titus up to his feet only to kick his leg right out from under him. Shelton tags in and drops down on Titus' leg while Haas drapes it across the bottom rope. Benjamin wrenches Titus' knee and leg, putting pressure on it, but Titus is able to kick him away. Shelton comes back by simply beating Titus with repeated fists to the face.
Haas tags in and takes Titus into the corner, wrapping his leg around the middle rope and pulling back before hitting him with a giant running clothesline. Titus struggles to pull himself up on the ropes, and Haas runs up behind him to kick the back of the knee again. Haas heads to the outside and wraps Titus' leg around the ringpost. Shelton tags in and takes advantage of a distraction by King to grab a chair. The ref grabs it before Shelton can use it, but it allows Haas to choke Titus. Shelton locks in a figure four around the ring post while Haas and King fight in the ring. Benjamin eventually lets go, and Haas hits Titus with a kick to the head that sends him out to the floor.
Titus is able to roll up Benjamin out of nowhere, but he only gets two. Titus struggles for the tag, but Shelton stops him in his tracks and locks in a modified figure four. Titus is able to roll Shelton up while in the hold, but still only gets two. Shelton keeps Titus from making the tag, and tags out to Haas, who comes in and continues the assault to the knee.

Kevin Kelly talks about how at the first ROH event there were 250 people, and now they're seen by over 1 million people each week.
Mike Bennett vs. Homicide
Bennett is the first man to make his way out to the ring, accompanied by Brutal Bob and Maria. The fans don't seem too excited to see Bennett.
Bennett has a mic and antagonizes the crowd, saying he has this, and the people in the crowd have nothing. The crowd chants for CM Punk (Maria's ex). Bennett says he's the best in the world, because he's from Boston and he's wicked smart. He has Brutal Bob and Maria. The crowd wants him to shut up. Bennett says he's going to do to Homicide what he should do to the fans, and that's take a crap on him and show him what New York really is.
This brings out Homicide, who makes his way out to a big pop. Homicide rushes the ring and begins attacking Bennett immediately.
Bennett bails to the outside to catch his breath and allow Homicide a bit of time to posture in the ring for the crowd. Bennett isn't too happy about the ambush.
Bennett pulls Homicide out of the ring, so Homicide slams him into one of the ringside barricades before tossing a chair into the ring. Homicide bites away at Bennett's ear, and the crowd loves it. Homicide back rakes Bennett, chasing him all the way around the ring.

Homicide heads out to the apron and gets tangled in the ropes, allowing Bennett to hit him with repeated rights. Bennett whips Homicide across the ring, but misses a splash, and gets an exploder suplex for his troubles. Bennett rolls to the outside, so Homicide goes for a tope con heilo.

Bennett hits a snap mare and follows up with a big elbow drop. Bennett hits Homicide with another right to the face, and shrugs off a kick to the chest before hitting a huge spinebuster. Bennett rips off Homicide's Yankee's shirt and uses it to wipe himself before tossing it from the ring. Homicide comes back with a series of chops and reverses a spinebuster, landing on his feet and countering with an ace crusher.
Both men take their time getting up, and when they do, they trade rights in the middle of the ring. The crowd is totally behind Homicide. Bennett gets the better of the punches, but Homicide comes right back with a powerbomb! Homicide locks in an STF, but breaks pretty quickly.

Homicide hits Bennett with the Go to Sleep, and Maria is furious, trying to get back into the ring. The distraction allows Bennett to roll up Homicide from behind for the three count.
Winner: Mike Bennett
Homicide attacks Bennett after the bell, until he's attacked from behind by Brutal Bob. It doesn't take much for him to be able to send Bob from the ring, and eventually, it's only Maria and Homicide left in the ring. Maria tries to escape, and Bennett and Bob grab her arms, and Homicide grabs her legs. They play tug of war for a bit, before Homicide lets go and lets the heels escape.
Homicide has a mic, he calls Bennett Mr. Fenway, and Maria a skank. Homicide leads the crowd in a "Let's go Yankee's" chant, which the crowd loves.
Homicide also gives out a little love for the NY Giants. He says it's a pleasure to be in New York City, and to be working for the greatest promotion in the world. He says Happy Birthday to Ring of Honor before leading the crowd in an "ROH" chant.
Nigel and Kevin Kelly continue to talk about what makes Ring of Honor special, and that's the older guys helping the younger guys come up and make their names. Kevin Kelly says he's got a special interview coming up, before throwing it to the ring. Bobby Cruise welcomes the CHIKARA Grand Champion, Eddie Kingston.
Eddie Kingston makes his way out to the ring to a nice pop from the crowd. That's pretty unsurprising since he's a New York native. Kingston gets several "Welcome Back" chants from the crowd.
Kevin Kelly wants to announce that ROH will now be co-promoting events, and the first event they'll be co-promoting is an event in Chicago where ROH will be working with CHIKARA for "Synergy"
Kingston says it feels great to be in ROH, to be in New York, and to see the people in the back. He says there was one person in the back that he's extremely excited to see, and that's Davey Richards. Kingston has an idea, but he can't even get it out before he's interrupted by a wolf howl, but it's not Davey Richards, it's Kevin Steen!
Steen comes out to the ring with a tennis racket, eating a banana, and wearing a tuxedo t-shirt with the sleeves cut off. This man is amazing! It's worth noting that Steen's tennis racket has a picture of Davey Richards on it.
Steen says honestly, it's really good to see Kingston. He asks what happened. He asks when Eddie became such a b----? What he means by that, is that he heard what Kingston had to say about coming back to ROH. Steen takes a little bit of time to run down a fan in the crowd, which is awesome. Steen says that Kingston was in ROH, but then Jim Cornette took over, and he disappeared. Steen says that can't be what Eddie really thinks. He says Kingston is cut from the same cloth that he is. He knows a lot of people would love to see Kingston and Steen fight, but more probably want to see him and Steen team up to tear apart the wrestling business. Steen says together they can tear down CHIKARA and ROH, and build them both back how they should be. Kingston says he doesn't want to destroy CHIKARA, because it's his home. He doesn't want to destroy ROH either, he's not about destroying anything.
Steen says ROH was the best until Cornette took over. Steen says CHIKARA is a BS Mickey Mouse promotion. He says if Kingston has a problem with the ROH World Champion, he should talk to Steen since he's going to have the belt soon.
Kingston grabs the mic and sends Kelly from the ring. He says he'll beat Steen like he doesn't know him. Kingston says that promotion means everything to him, and Steen better shut his mouth.
Steen says he's not one to start trouble, and he may have been out of line. He says he didn't come here to fight Kingston, but things break down immediately and both men begin trading rights. The locker room empties and people come out to try and pull Steen and Kingston apart.
Steen breaks out to attack Kingston a couple of times before Kingston is pulled from the ring. Steen is in the ring alone and he's got the CHIKARA Grand Championship. Steen puts the belt down in the ring and acts like he's going to pee on it, but CHIKARA wrestlers including the Colony and Jigsaw come out to break things up. They pull Steen from the ring and beat on him before Fire Ant hits a front flip springboard senton to the outside on top of everyone.
Steen is the first man to get to his feet and he grabs the tennis racket. Steen and the CHIKARA wrestlers all fight to the back.

TJ Perkins makes his way out first to a nice pop from the crowd. He's followed very shortly after by Amazing Red, who gets a huge pop from this NYC crowd in his return.
