B.J. Whitmer and Adam Page came out to the ring. Whitmer was confident that no one in the back wanted to fight him. Whitmer knew that Steve Corino didn’t really have any friends in Ring of Honor. Steve’s music hit and “The King of Old School” walked out on the stage. Whitmer mistakenly thought Corino was going to fight him. Steve knew everyone was tired of Whitmer’s ignorance. Steve clarified that he was not going to fight, right now. Instead, Whitmer was introduced to…Adam Page! Yep, Adam turned on his mentor and the fight was seriously on. The two went wild and wooly on each other. Security and refs rushed in to break things up. They got laid out by Page, who was trying to get to Whitmer.
