Veda Scott got on the microphone and said Ring of Honor has put herself and Cedric Alexander in an unsafe work environment. Veda said they were going to take RoH to court. That figures.

Jay Lethal and Truth Martini came out to the ring. The fans showed great respect to the double champion. That changed when the fans began to chant for “A.J. Styles”. Truth started to talk but he was cut off by the arrival of…Roderick Strong.

Strong wanted to congratulate the House of Truth for making history. He also wanted to shake the hand of the man who beat him, Truth Martini. Roddy made it clear that Truth was the only reason that Jay is a champion and in RoH. Jay lost it. He said Truth didn’t win the gold, even though he is the smartest manager in the business. Strong wanted another match. Jay sounded like Ric Flair as he screamed that there would be no more matches. Roddy suggested Jay was scared of him. Jay explained that there were many men ahead of Strong. Jay called Nigel to get in the ring and fix this.

Nigel did say that Strong couldn’t go after the World title, right now. However, Strong could go after the TV title. Nigel named Strong the Number One Contender for the TV Title. Cool.

Inside RoH looked at the Best of Five Series, so far, between Matt Sydal and ACH. The first four matches have been some of the best that RoH has offered in the past couple of years. Matt took the first match but ACH came back to even it up. ACH pulled ahead when he won the third match. Sydal evened it up as he took the fourth contest. There is just one more match to go. The final match would happen at Survival of the Fittest. That winner will go into the Survival of the Fittest tournament to find a contender to the World title.

Adam Cole pushed his new t-shirt. He also pushed the Kingdom tee.
