We open up and we are live from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. The place is jammed full and may very well be the biggest ROH card ever.
The Bullet Club comes down to the ring to a big pop. Anderson gets the microphone but is drowned out by AJ Styles chants. Anderson finally speaks and he says that the Bullet Club has arrived. He calls AJ Styles the greatest wrestler on earth and introduces him as the IWGP Champion. AJ takes the mic and loud "F TNA" chants take over the arena. AJ says that they are the Bullet Club, and while some may think he is the leader of the Club, the reality is nobody follows, we all lead.
Kazuchika Okada and Gedo come down to the ring. They get right in AJ's face and AJ uses Anderson to translate for them. Anderson says that Gedo just said that The Rainmaker can beat him. AJ says a month ago he proved that he could not beat him. He says that he has his hands full with Elgin tonight, so he can't deal with Okada tonight. Elgin then comes down to the ring alone. Elgin says a few weeks ago, he thought he was wrestling Okada tonight, but now he is wrestling AJ. He says he has a better idea. He calls Nigel McGuinness out and demands that the match become a triple threat match. The crowd goes wild at this thought.
McGuinness comes out and talks to the chairman of NJPW, Nigel grabs the mic and says that the only way to make this work is to make it a three way match. Nihel asks if it is okay with Okada and Elgin, and they agree immediatly. AJ is asked the same question, but he needs to huddle up with the Bullet Club to discuss it. He emerges from the huddle and says the Bullet Club is game. Nigel announces that tonight it will be Okada vs Elgin vs AJ for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship.
We go to Corino and Kelly and they talk about how bold Elgin is in making this match a triple threat match. Takaaki Wantanabe and Forever Hooligans come down for their six man tag match. ACH comes done by himself first, and then Matt Taven comes down. Tomaso Ciampa is the last one out of the curtain.
Tomaso Ciampa, Matt Taven and ACH vs Takaaki Wantanabe and Forever Hooligans
Ciampa and Kozlov start things of. Kozlov goes for a handshake but Ciampa doesn't bite. Kozlov with a side headlock followed by a shoulder tackle. Ciampa gets up and answers with one of his own. Matt Taven comes in and Kozlov tags in Rocky Romero. They lock up and Romero hits a dropkick. He hits a kick in the chest and runs into a big boot by Taven, who follows it up with a missile dropkick. Romero gives him a hard right and eats an enzughiri for a two count.
Taven tags in ACH who comes off the top with a double axe handle. Romero tags in Wantanabe who scores with a shoulder tackle but eats a dropkick. The Hooligans run in and ACH has a dropkick for both of them. Wantanabe drags him down from the outside and starts stomping away on ACH as the Hooligans brawl with Ciampa and Taven. Thins settle back down and Romero comes in. A scoop slam and a splash by a tagged in Kozlov get him a two count. Kozlov hits a suplex and gets his Russian hat on. He does his dance/kick combo and stomps ACH in the head for a two count. Wantanabe comes in and hits a huge scoop slam on ACH for another two count.
