Show opens with the huge black guy from the last show who is bigger than Slugga entering the arena. Next we go backstage as Alexis Laree cuts a promo with A.J. Styles and Amazing Red. After she’s done, Paul London confronts A.J. and asks why they are no longer partners. Weird promo by London and A.J.’s redneck accent makes him nearly incomprehensible.

After the match, Homicide was trying to get Daniels to shake when Samoa Joe, CW Anderson and Jack Victory attack both of them. Joe chokes out Homicide and Mafia makes the save. Mafia and Daniels are about to go at it. Daniels rips off his shirt and he has a Prophecy shirt underneath. I guess he’s a heel now. He drops his shirt on Homicide and walks out.
Gary Michael Capetta interviews B.J. Whitmer. Poor bastard is hurting. CM Punk gives him props, then totally shits on him for quitting. They cut to the hallway outside where Julius Smokes and his thug friend are beating down nobodys, then run away with their wallets.
Match No. 6: Alexis Laree vs. Ariel. Match must have sucked since they are only showing highlights and the match went less than two minutes. Wonder if this was before or after Alexis did the porn shoot. Alexis wins, Ariel needs to lose some weight. Rating: *
Match No. 7: Hotstuff Hernandez vs. Samoa Joe in a non-title match. Joe’s first match as ROH champion. Of course, the belt’s not on the line. Joe controlling the action early.

Decent match between the big guys, but a little short. Rating: ***

They cut to David Young and Iceberg fighting outside the arena. No idea what that’s about. This must have been before Young’s TNA run.
