Brody King def. ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champion Rey Horus
(From my Free Enterprise review...) Horus, Bandido and Flamita beat Villain Enterprises for the six-man tag titles at Saturday Night at Center Stage, so this match made sense. They weren't given a ton of time, but this was quite the sprint while it lasted. King avenged his loss of the titles with the win and looked as impressive as always. On a random side note, I had no idea Rey Horus was Dragon Azteca from Lucha Underground until I looked him up while watching this show. Maybe it's because his mask doesn't look like a watermelon anymore.
ROH World Champion PCO and Marty Scurll def. NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis and Rush
(From my Free Enterprise review...) I love that this feud between Aldis and Scurll has crossed over into ROH after starting in the NWA. The cross promotion benefits both companies big time. PCO and Scurll worked well together per usual and Rush and Aldis had an interesting dynamic as partners until Rush walked out on Aldis because Aldis accidentally hit him with a diving elbow. PCO pinning Aldis sets them up to do battle at Supercard of Honor over WrestleMania weekend, though it wasn't said if either of their world championships are going to be on the line (I assume not). We also found out that Scurll vs. Aldis will happen at Crockett Cup and if Scurll loses, he'll pay him half of a million dollars. It's on! (Editor's note: PCO has since lost the ROH World Championship back to Rush at Gateway to Honor.)
Free Enterprise is officially a month old at this point, and while I realize that the main event was relevant in setting up Supercard of Honor, they should have formatted the recent shows better so they could have already started to air what happened at Bound by Honor and Gateway to Honor. There are a slew of matches on tap for the 18th Anniversary Show this coming Friday, but the only hype they received was at the very end of this episode. Mark Haskins' promo on Rush was excellent, but it wasn't enough to get me excited for the pay-per-view. ROH has been making strides in 2020, but the build for the 18th Anniversary Show has been disappointing, to say the least.
