Dalton Castle and The Boys def. Karl Fredericks, Alex Coughlin and Clark Connors
The trio that Castle and The Boys faced are apparently from Ring of Honor's dojo in Los Angeles. I guess this marked Castle's first win of 2019, but it should be noted he has yet to win a singles match. I actually thought that he might lose here, but instead, one of The Boys picked up the victory for their team, which would explain why Castle later turned heel on them at G1 Supercard (this taped weeks before that). This was perfectly fine and furthered Castle's story nicely.
The Bouncers def. The Voros Twins
It was clear from the get-go that this was going to be a squash considering The Voros Twins are not regulars in ROH, but that isn't to say that's a necessarily bad thing. The Bouncers have slowly but surely been building momentum in recent weeks and, as I've mentioned before, they've become a guilty pleasure of mine. That said, I don't know how soon they'll be contending for the ROH World Tag Team Championship considering the belts are now in the possession of Guerrillas of Destiny.
Silas Young def. Jonathan Gresham
This was originally supposed to take place at the 17th Anniversary Show before being bumped from the show due to Jay Lethal vs. Matt Taven running long. It would have been a quality addition to the card had it happened because this was a great match. Gresham not selling the knee injury he "sustained" at the pay-per-view was strange, but other than that, I loved the sense of urgency this had and the final stretch in particular was fantastic. Gresham lost nothing in defeat due to Young hitting him with a low blow for the victory, and I'd be all for a rematch eventually.
This aired in some markets the night before G1 Supercard, so the last-minute build for the event was a nice touch. For someone like me who watched when it went up on Honor Club/FITE TV days later, the promotion for the pay-per-view did nothing. The first two matches served a purpose yet were hardly memorable, but I thoroughly enjoyed the main event. The sit-down interview with PJ Black also offered some cool insight into his character.
