Shane Taylor doesn’t believe in fairy tales
Taylor said it would be a fairy tale ending to the Final Battle pay-per-view on Dec. 13 if RUSH retained the ROH World Title against PCO, and RUSH’s brother Dragon Lee won the ROH World Television Title from him. He said the problem is that where he comes from, fairy tales don’t exist. He said Dragon Lee is fooling himself if he thinks he’s walking out of Final Battle with the ROH World Television Title. Taylor said he will retain his title by any means necessary.

Highlights from Unauthorized: No-Disqualification Match: Sumie Sakai and Jenny Rose vs. The Allure (Angelina Love and Mandy Leon)
This match saw the return of mascot Daryl Takahashi, who was brought in by Sakai in honor of New Japan Pro-Wrestling star Hiromu Takahashi announcing his return to the ring recently after spending more than a year on the sideline with a broken neck. Unfortunately for Sakai and Rose, Daryl was unable to help them overcome The Allure, as Love pinned Sakai after a Botox Injection.
After the match, Love grabbed the microphone, but she only got a few words out before Maria Manic came out to interrupt her. Manic backed Love into the corner and said, “At Final Battle, you’re dead, bitch!”
Kenny King (w/Amy Rose) vs. Eli Isom vs. PJ Black vs. Ultimo Guerrero
Black scored the victory after hitting Isom with a moonsault/low double stomp combination. At one point during the match, King wowed the crowd by doing a running dive off the stage over several rows of fans onto his three opponents.
