Code of Honor Handshakes. Kushida and Jay opened the contest. The two circled around each other and then Jay unloaded with a kick, Headbutt and European Uppercut. Tag to Mark. Side Russian Leg Sweep. Front Face Lock led to a hard punch and kicks by Mark. Jay came back in and kicked away. Mark was holding the Japanese superstar during this time. 2 count. Alex was knocked off the apron. Wheelbarrow Bulldog by Kushida. Alex tagged in and the Time Splitters double teamed Mark. Nice series of moves by both sides sent RoH to their first break.

Mark and Jay worked over Alex with a Clothesline. Wicked variation of the Razor’s Edge brought a two. Jay took the tag and pulled in Alex for the Jay Driller. He didn’t get it. Kushida with a Step Up Enziguri. He then blocked a Uranage but fell to a T-Bone Suplex from Mark. Jay Driller!
