They cut their promos while Daniels pours his appletini and the crowd chants “YOU DESERVE IT!”. Daniels continues to cut his promo basically talking himself up over Adam Cole. Frank then cuts his own promo stating he’s gunning for Marty Scurll‘s Ring of Honor Television Championship at Super Card of Honor. Dalton Castle, the man to challenge Christopher Daniels at Super Card interrupts the duo as he makes his entrance to the ring where he shares an appletini with the champion and cuts a pretty hilarious promo. Castle calls out his boys to bring out a glass and the two celebrate and share a couple of glasses of appletini while Castle congratulates Daniels on his championship while also at the same time threatening to take the championship. Adam Cole and the club (The Young Bucks) then interferes on the ridiculous promo and its “Story Time with Adam Cole baybaayyyy”. Cole then continues to mock Castle, Daniels, and Kazarian stating he’s the only one worthy of the championship. This eventually sets up a 6 man tag between Bullet Club vs. Daniels, Kazarian, and Castle. We now get a backstage promo with Marty Scurll issuing an open challenge. Kenny King then comes in after Marty is finished stating he’s beaten everyone that Marty has, setting up a Kenny King vs Marty Scurll for next week’s main event.
