The Allure have harsh words for Women of Honor

The Allure (Angelina Love, Velvet Sky and Mandy Leon) came to the ring and bragged about their credentials. Sky said they’re the most credible women to ever step foot in Women of Honor. Love said they know how to make an impact, which is why they chose to debut at ROH’s biggest show -- G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden. Leon said she’s the foundation of Women of Honor and if it wasn’t for her there would be no women’s wrestling in ROH. She said that all the women in WOH have done is embarrass themselves.

WOH World Champion Kelly Klein and Jenny Rose came out and jumped on Love and Leon, as Sky slipped away. Security came out to separate them. In the chaos, Sky sprayed hairspray in Rose’s eyes.

Klein said it’s time for The Allure to back up their words. She challenged them to face her and Rose anytime, anywhere. Later in the show, it was announced that Klein and Rose will meet Love and Leon in a tag match in two weeks.

Four Corner Survival Match: The Kingdom (TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia) vs. The Bouncers (Beer City Bruiser and Brawler Milonas) vs. Coast 2 Coast (LSG and Shaheem Ali) vs. NJPW Young Lions Alex Coughlin and Clark Connors

The Kingdom hit House of 1,000 Horses on Connors, but LSG pump-kicked O’Ryan before he could make the cover. Ali tried to steal the pin, but Beer City Bruiser broke it up. Shortly thereafter, The Bouncers hit Closing Time on Coughlin for the victory.

PJ Black offers support to LifeBlood

Quinn McKay interviewed LifeBlood’s Mark Haskins and “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams backstage. Haskins said that Bully Ray has been a problem for too long and it’s time they did something about it. Williams said that Juice Robinson and Bandido are in Japan and David Finlay is injured, so Bully took advantage of their numbers being low and took out Tenille Dashwood. Williams said he and Haskins are here and they’re ready.

Black walked up and said he heard them talking about numbers. He said he really likes what they’re doing and if they need someone to watch their backs, he’s their guy.

Clip: James Storm Challenges Colt Cabana

After Cabana defeated Willie Mack to win the NWA National Title at the Crockett Cup on April 27, Storm entered the ring and challenged Cabana to put the title on the line against him. Cabana accepted the challenge. The match will take place on next week’s episode.

Jeff Cobb sitdown interview: Part 1

Cobb talked about his amateur wrestling accolades, including competing in the 2003 World Championships at Madison Square Garden and the 2004 Olympics in Athens. 

Cobb will face ROH World Champion Matt Taven for the title at the Best in the World pay-per-view on June 28 in Baltimore.

Josh Woods vs. Maverick Boone

Woods kicked Boone in the midsection and hit a gutwrench bomb, followed by the Seismic Toss. Woods covered him for the victory. Time of the fall: 52 seconds. 

Satoshi Kojima and Yuji Nagata vs. Los Ingobernables de Japon (EVIL and SANADA)

Nagata hit an exploder suplex on SANADA for a near fall. Nagata then put SANADA in the Nagata Lock, but EVIL made the save. SANADA hit a missile dropkick on Nagata to turn the tide in LIJ’s favor. Kojima regained the advantage and scored several near falls on EVIL. Ultimately, EVIL and SANADA hit Magic Killer on Kojima for the win.

Dalton Castle issues a challenge, but not to RUSH

Castle came to the ring and said that he has come to terms with losing to RUSH in 16 seconds at G1 Supercard. He said RUSH is a cheater and needs to be punished, which is why at the Best in the World pay-per-view he is challenging RUSH’s brother, Dragon Lee, to a match. Castle said he will make RUSH pay for what he did by breaking every bone in Lee’s body.

The Boys came down to the ring and surrounded Castle. They attacked their former leader, but he turned it around and brutalized them on the floor.
