The Kingdom was facing a serious challenge in Jay Briscoe, Mark Briscoe and One Dirty Briscoe (ODB). This match would be disturbing in so many ways. Warning! This will not be exactly a Family Friendly kind of match.

Roll the New and Improved Opening Monage!

We are at the 2300 Arena (Formerly Known as Viking Hall or the ECW Arena). Caprice Coleman joined Steve Corino and Kevin Kelly for the first match.

Live Edition of The Fish Tank

Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly now hold both the IWGP Junior Tag Championships and the RoH World Tag Championships. Kyle caught Hell when he called Philly “The Windy City” (Chicago). Kyle introduced Fish and he got a wonderful reaction from the crowd. Fish said tonight was a celebration of the success of reDRagon. Fish said they were ready for Vegas on March 1st.

Kyle asked their opponents to come out: Nick and Matt Jackson, the Young Bucks. These young men are part of the Bullet Club, the latest Super Faction (mostly seen in Japan). I’ve followed these kids for the past five years. I even had the honor of ring announcing their championship match in Reno, about 3 years back. Fish was ticked off that the Jacksons looked like a couple of bums. Fish said the fans wanted to know the Bucks better. Kyle and Fish taunted the Bucks by asking questions and not letting them answer. Double Superkick to Kyle. Security rushed in and got laid out in a Superkick Party. Yes! I know it ticks off some of my dear friends but I like it. The two guys in red masks watched as Nick and Matt flew out of the ring to take out refs and security members.

Tommaso Ciampa cut a rambling promo about being ready to destroy Jimmy Jacobs, next week.

Q.T. Marshall vs Roderick Strong

Marshall (pronounced Mar—Shall or Mar-Shawl, depending on who is speaking) uses the nickname “God’s Gift”. Puh-lease. Marshall talked trash to the fans and then pushed himself. Strong cut off the tirade and got covered in streamers. Code of Honor Handshake, with some added trash talking. Collar and Elbow to the corner. Clean break but Marshall had to scream at Roddy. Collar and Elbow took both men to another corner. Shove by Marshall. Q.T. slapped Roderick. Roddy hit a Jumping Knee, Stiff Forearm and Sick Kick.

Your Winner: Roderick Strong
Honor Roll Ranking: 2.0

B.J. Whitmer came out and thought it was cute that Strong felt he could run with Whitmer. Strong was sick of hearing Whitmer’s mouth and challenged Whitmer to fight. Whitmer said he would set the time for their fight. Strong warned Whitmer that he would eventually get Whitmer and end his career. Steve Corino loved that idea.

The Kingdom talked serious garbage. Matt Taven said The Briscoes brought in ODB because Mark and Jay are scared. Michael Bennett felt ODB was a man.
