Jay Lethal, Shane Taylor & Kenny King vs. Minoru Suzuki and The Killer Elite Squad
Suzuki-Gun attacked Team ROH before the bell and everyone brawled. Who didn’t see that coming? They fought all over ringside. This all built to Lethal and Suzuki facing off. They faced off, wary of each other and exchanged stiff slaps. It all broke down into everyone fighting all over the ringside area again. This led to Lethal and Suzuki getting back into the ring, exchanging strikes and chops as the challenged the other to bring it stronger. Suzuki was hilarious laughing off the shots as if he loved them. He finally kicked Lethal so hard he sent him sailing backwards through the ropes to the floor.

Colt Cabana vs. Toru Yano
Yano came out carrying a CHAOS DVD. Colt showed him a Wrestling Road Diaries 3 DVD and they traded. The crowd chanted “Holy sh**.” Yano tossed Cabana DVD into the crowd and rolled him up for a two count.
Yano tried to take off the turnbuckle, one of his signature spots in Japan but Cabana stopped him. Cabana ended up taking one of the buckles, so Yano grabbed another and they began hitting each other with the buckles. Cabana ended up with both and Yano begged off, apologizing. Cabana tried to go for the Cubs Win, but Yano escaped. Yano worked over Cabana, beating his head into the buckles.
They did a comedy deal where they shoved the referee back and forth to each other unti he was finally knocked down. Cabana went to help the referee but Yano low blowed him. Yano tied up Cabana’s arms and went to hit him with another buckle. Cabana nailed an elbow and used a pinfall combination to score the pin.
Your winner, Colt Cabana!
Will Ospreay vs. Flip Gordon
The crowd was harassing Ospreay that he was a cat. Gordon showboated early but ate a dropkick. Ospreay teased a dive to the floor but bounced off the ropes, showboating himself. Gordon finally escaped using a head scissors following multiple rotations. Gordon nailed a sliding kick through the ropes, then hit a superkick and a moonsault press to the floor. Lots of back and forth action. Ospreay caught Gordon with a big kick but was too winded to capitalize.
They exchanged strikes. Ospreay won the round and hit an awesome skateboard dropkick into the corner. Gordon drilled Ospreay, sending him to the apron. Ospreay used body scissors to send Gordon to the floor and nailed the Space Flying Tiger Drop. Ospreay followed up with a springboard clothesline. They battled to the top rope. Gordon leapt up and nailed a kick that sent Ospreay down to the floor. Gordon hit an insane springboard moonsault to the floor on Ospreay.
Back in the ring, Gordon unloaded with a nice sequence of moves for a two count. He nailed a Pele Kick on Ospreay and they went into an insane back and forth flurry that I can’t even explain but it ended with each of them hitting stunners off the ropes on the other. Pretty nuts. They just keep topping themselves with all sorts of big spots and near falls. Gordon nearly scored the pin several times, including an awesome 450 splash off the top.
Ospreay cut him off and draped him across the top rope, then hit a standing shooting star press for a two count. They went back and forth until Ospreay hit the Ozcutter for the pin.
Your winner, Will Ospreay!
IWGP United States champion Kenny Omega vs. YOSHI-HASHI
This is an entirely pro-Omega crowd, almost to the point that you know they aren’t going to buy YOSHI-HASHI as a legitimate threat. They died immediately. They are happy to see Omega but you don’t get the impression they are into this as a top notch main event bout.
They locked up. Omega broke clean. They locked up again. YOSHI-HASHI did not, chopping him. Omega got the better of him with a punt kick and slapped him. That upset HASHI, who hit some big moves including the Headhunter for a two count. HASHI knocked Omega to the floor but Omega soon took him down and declated HASHI wasn’t at his level. He pulled a table out from under the ring and laid it against the guard rail on the floor. He attempted to suplex HASHI through it but the suplex was reversed.
They battled back into the ring. HASHI unloaded with a hard chop to the chest. They battled back and forth with chops. HASHI whipped Omega into the corner and nailed him with a big back elbow. Omega came back with a bulldog that stunned HASHI. He covered him for a two count. Omega nailed him with a running backbreaker. Omega worked him over with a side chinlock. There was a huge chant for Omega and a tiny chant for HASHI in response.
Omega nailed a rana but was caught with a back windmill kick. HASHI and Omega battled back and forth until Omega sent him to the floor and hit a tope con hilo over the top to the floor. He nailed a running powerbomb into the table in the corner. HASHI was tossed back in the ring but kicked up.

He nailed a big double knee strike and a powerbomb for a two count. Omega kicked out but the idea was he was out on his feet.
They locked up and ended up knocking Todd Sinclair out of the ring. The Bullet Club hit the ring and began stomping away at YOSHI-HASHI. Omega called them off and then called for the ten boots. They set up but when Omega attempted it, HASHI stopped it and nailed a back cracker. YOSHI called for New Japan talents to come out and they did with Flip Gordon and set up to do ten boots on their own. Omega and HASHI kept trying to do it but kept stopping the other. Well, this is ridiculous.
They began slugging it out. Finally, Omega tossed HASHI into the Bucks, then tossed him into CHAOS’ boots. He nailed the One Winged Angel but HASHI kicked out. Omega nailed another but Toru Yano pulled the referee out. Beretta hit the ring and nailed the Dudebuseter on Omega. This led to everyone hitting all their big moves on everyone else. It all ended with Ospreay hitting a shooting star off the top on everyone on the floor, then Nick Jackson hitting a springboard 450 splash through a table on Flip Gordon.
HASHI went for a swanton but Omega put his knees up. He nailed a shining wizard and nailed the One Winged Angel for the pin.
Your winner and still IWGP United States champion, Kenny Omega!
After the match, they were looking to do a Bullet Club selfie but none of them had brought a camera. Then, they “realized” Jimmy Jacobs was in the crowd and they all went to ringside to take the selfie. Nick Jackson then took the mic and said, “Sorry we got your a** fired Jimmy!” The announcers played this up as if they were shocked Jacobs was there and hinted he could be back.
