Pyros go off throughout the arena. Josh Daniels, joined by Scott Michaels at ringside, welcomes everyone to Wichita for Justice. It’s announced that nine matches will be taking place tonight, including the ten-man elimination match. A new X-Division Champion will be named as Christopher Daniels faces off with Martin Maldonado. And, in the main event, Randy Orton defends the Heavyweight Title against Kurt Angle. Josh sends things to the ring, for the opening contest, to determine the new number-one contender for the Women’s Title.

Number One Contenders Match
Kelly Kelly vs. Kaitlyn

The opening match saw Kelly Kelly make her HWL debut, coming up from PCW, fighting for a chance at the top women’s title. Kaitlyn, also making her debut, is a relative newcomer to the business; but from her showing in this match, she has certainly learned a lot in her short time between the ropes. Kaitlyn dominated Kelly throughout this match, and it was obviously frustrating Kelly to not get any consistent offense. Kaitlyn put things away with a side suplex for the victory.

After the match, Kaitlyn was jubilant as she exited the ring, celebrating up the ramp. Inside the ring, Kelly Kelly looked down at the canvas, shaking her head. She gets to her feet and leaves the ring, as we go backstage.

Backstage, Alisha Hicks asks Christopher Daniels about facing Martin Maldonado for the X-Division Title in just a few moments. Daniels says that Maldonado is the reason the X-Division Title is vacant, and it’s a shame that he’s able to challenge for the title because of that reason. But, Daniels says he knows he’s earned his right to be in this match; he says nothing will be better than winning the title, but denying Maldonado his championship will be a close second.

Also backstage, Ted Hanson says that Kofi Kingston gets his shot at retribution against Kevin Steen tonight. He asks Kofi about the events that took place on Anarchy. Kofi says that everyone saw what kind of man Steen really is, trying to attack Kingston from behind. Kofi got the better of him, and tonight, Steen will have no chance but to get what’s coming to him.

A video package is shown, highlighting the Martin Maldonado’s attack on Chris Sabin; Christopher Daniels’ victory to become the number-one contender; and the post-match attack by Maldonado. The announcers say that there is a lot on the line in this match, not just the chance to become champion.

X-Division Title Match
Christopher Daniels vs. Martin Maldonado

For weeks, Martin Maldonado has reveled in the jeers he has gotten from the crowd, and the harsh words said behind his back by other superstars in the back. Maldonado has taken responsibility for causing Chris Sabin to give up the X-Division Title; and for bullying his way into the match tonight. Maldonado showed that he wasn’t going to give any credit to Christopher Daniels, who earned his right to challenge for the title. Daniels also had a score to settle against Maldonado, for attacking him last week. With the X-Division rules in place, this match did not stay in the ring long, as both men looked to inflict as much pain on the other as possible. Maldonado viciously sent Daniels into the barricade and connected with a snap suplex onto the steel ring steps. But, Daniels, through it all, was able to fight back. After a chair shot, Daniels worked over Maldonado and looked set to put things away, when Maldonado shoved Daniels into the referee! With the ref down, Maldonado hit a low blow on Daniels, before hitting the Gringo Killa for the victory.

After the match, Maldonado is awarded the X-Division Title. Maldonado drops the belt and hits a second Gringo Killa on Daniels, as the crowd boos. Maldonado holds up the title belt as the announcers discuss the ending of the match.

Backstage, Ted Hanson asks Kevin Steen what tonight’s match with Kofi Kingston means to him. Steen says there is a short-lived past between him and Kofi. It all stems from when Kingston upset Steen on Anarchy a number of weeks ago. Steen says that this past Monday night, he was ready to fight. Tonight, he says the only thing that means anything is that it ends with Steen getting his hand raised in victory.

HWL Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton is seen entering the arena. The announcers mention the history between Orton and Kurt Angle, and how they expect tonight’s match to be another classic.

In the back, Alisha Hicks is seen with Leva Bates and Brie Bella. Alisha asks if Leva is feeling any jitters heading into her title match against Brie’s sister Nikki. Before Leva can answer, Brie says that it’s ridiculous to think that Leva would be the slightest bit nervous. Brie reminds Alisha that the woman training Leva is the person who knows Nikki better than anyone else on the planet – her. Brie says that Leva is going to walk out of this hellhole of a city a champion. What’s better, Brie says, is seeing the look on Nikki’s face when she realizes she is no longer the best.

Kofi Kingston vs. Kevin Steen

In the weeks leading up to this match, both men picked up a number of victories – and momentum – as they headed toward another encounter in this feud. Steen felt jilted after being upset weeks ago on Anarchy. Tonight, he was looking to even the score, but things did not go according to plan, as Kingston came out firing on all cylinders. Steen tried to fight back, but luckily for him, got some assistance from RAMI SEBEI, who came down to ringside and interfered against Kingston. There was a point in the match, where Steen used a weapon given to him by Sebei, to bust Kingston open. This proved to be Kofi’s downfall, as he fell victim to a Package Piledriver for the 1-2-3.

Backstage, Kaitlyn is shown sitting in her locker stall, head in her hands. Ted Hanson asks what emotions she’s feeling after becoming the new number-one contender for the Women’s Title. Kaitlyn, fighting back tears, gives credit to Kelly Kelly for giving her an amazing match. Kaitlyn says she’s just excited for the opportunity to fight for the shot and is ecstatic that she has become the number-one contender. She says no matter who walks away tonight with the Women’s Title, they will be in for a challenge, because she’s coming after the gold.

Kurt Angle is seen stretching in another part of the arena. The announcers again mention the history between Angle and Randy Orton. Angle is trying to become Heavyweight Champion for the second time, tonight, against The Viper.

Alisha Hicks stops Women’s Champion Nikki Bella as she walks through the hallway. Alisha relays what Brie Bella and Leva Bates said earlier tonight. Nikki says that it’s true, there’s no one in the business that knows her better than her sister, Brie. However, Nikki says that, even though they’re twins, there are some things that even Brie doesn’t know.

Leva Bates vs. © Nikki Bella

As champion, Nikki walked into this match with the advantage in experience; but it was obvious from the bell that Brie had taught Leva a lot about what Nikki brought to the table. Leva was able to hold her own throughout the entire match, but as Nikki said in her pre-match interview, there are some things that even a twin doesn’t know. Nikki changed up her offense in the latter part of the match, sticking to a more mat-based technique, which took Leva off her game. Nikki tried to put on the Figure Four, only to have Leva kick her through the ropes. Nikki bounced off the apron and crashed onto the concrete at ringside. Leva quickly got to her feet and started arguing with the referee, telling him to do his job. With the referee distracted, BRIE BELLA jumped over the guardrail and hit Nikki with a Bella Bomb onto the concrete! Brie rolled Nikki underneath the ring and started to slowly climb onto the apron. Leva left the referee alone and pulled Brie into the ring. Leva hit a DDT in the center of the ring, pinning Brie, as the referee counted the 1-2-3!

After the match, Levi is awarded the Women’s Title as Brie slowly rolls out of the ring. Leva leaves the ring with the belt and looks back to make sure Brie is OK, before heading up the ramp. The crowd boos wildly as Brie slowly makes it to her feet.

Backstage, Ted Hanson catches up with the new X-Division Champion, Martin Maldonado. Maldonado says he doesn’t need congratulations from anyone because it was only a matter of time before he got what should have been his a long time ago. He says he is the man to beat in the X-Division, and until that person comes along, that can take the title off him, he’s going to hold the entire division hostage.

Alisha Hicks is seen with Adam Cole and asks him what tonight’s main event might mean for him and his Golden Opportunity. Cole says that tonight’s main event doesn’t have any impact on his Golden Opportunity, but that the opposite may very well be true. Cole says that he will be watching tonight, to see who his next target is going to be.

#1 Contenders Match
Ink Inc. (Jesse Neal & Shannon Moore) vs. The Briscoe Brothers (Mark and Jay Briscoe)

Everyone in Wichita knew that Jesse Neal was going to take part in the 10-man Elimination Match later tonight. But they were surprised to see him come out to the ring with his partner from TNA, Shannon Moore, as Ink Inc, reunited tonight for a shot at the HWL Tag Team Titles. However, they were going up against a team that had not been a part as long as Neal and Moore had. The Briscoe have been one of the most dominate – and popular – teams in Ring of Honor. Tonight, they debuted, and showed how much of a force they intend on being in the HWL. Mark and Jay worked together seamlessly – as it took a little time for Neal and Moore to get into a rhythm – and by the time they did, it was too late. Mark stunned Moore with a spinning heel kick, allowing the Briscoes to become Number One Contenders.

After the match, Mark and Jay attacked both Neal and Moore, beating them down in the corners. As referees rushed down to the ring, they dumped Neal and Moore out of the ring. The Briscoes left the ring with their hands up and made their way to the broadcast table, where they threatened the timekeeper and ring announcer for their seats. Mark and Jay pulled their chairs up and announced that they’d be at ringside to see which unlucky duo they’d be taking the Tag Team Titles off of.

Also, backstage, Alisha Hicks asks Kurt Angle about tonight’s main event and the comments made by Adam Cole earlier. Angle says that everyone knows how much he and Randy Orton do not like each other. Angle says that they have had their battles over the years, and no matter how many times they step into the ring, that dislike… hatred… never goes away. As far as Cole is concerned, Angle says that there’s going to be a target square in the center of his back after he becomes a two-time Heavyweight Champion.

Outside his team’s locker room, John Cena is asked by Ted Hanson about the upcoming 10-man Elimination Match. Cena says that his guys have gotten a lot of flak lately, for aligning themselves with him. Cena says that shouldn’t surprise anyone because now people have a legitimate reason to not like him. But that doesn’t bother Cena. He says that he has four top-notch dudes that would go to war with each other, and that’s exactly what they’re going to do tonight Cena says that tonight is a war. Cena says he feels disrespected because Peter Bradshaw thought so little of him, he was in a battle royal for the X-Division Title. Cena says that Bradshaw and the fans can kiss his ass; and tonight, they can all watch, as he and his boy leave their ragtag bunch of wannabes laying on the canvas.

HWL Tag Team Title Match
Colt Cabana & Edwin Colon vs. © Tyson Kidd & Eddie Edwards

In this on-going battle of one-upmanship, it started to seem a little less about the Tag Team Titles, and a little bit more about just getting the better of the other team. At least the was the feeling six days, on Anarchy, when Cabana and Colon came down to the ring and distracted Eddie Edwards, causing him and Kidd to lose a non-title match-up. It was clear that the challengers came into this match thinking they had the upper hand in the mind game department, but they soon realized that they were wrong. Their actions on Monday night seemed to stoke the fire burning inside Kidd and Edwards, as nothing Cabana and Colon did seem to be effective. Edwards connected with an Asai moon sault, before locking in the Achilles Lock on Colon. Colon struggled towards the ropes, but the pain was too unbearable, and he was forced to tap out.

After the match, Mark and Jay Briscoe get up from the broadcast booth and approach the ring. Kidd and Edwards prepare for a fight as the Briscoes enter the ring. Confronting the champions, Mark and Jay stick their hands out, offering congratulations to the defending champions. Reluctantly, Kidd and Edwards accept the offer… only to have The Briscoes clothesline them to the canvas! Mark and Jay deliver a beat-down to the champions, leaving them motionless in the ring, as the crowd roars with boos.

Backstage, Alisha Hicks asks Randy Orton about the comments made by Adam Cole earlier tonight. Orton says that Cole has been saying he’s coming after the Heavyweight Title since March, but all he has proven is that it is hot air. Orton says that Cole can say whatever he wants, but until he actually backs up those words, then Orton is going to stay focused on Kurt Angle. Orton says he and Angle go way back, and he agrees that he doesn’t know when or how the feud between them is going to end. Orton says a good way to end it will be walking out of Wichita as the defending Heavyweight Champion.

Ted Hanson is seen standing in the hallway backstage when Mark and Jay Briscoe make their way past him. He stops them for a comment on becoming the new number one contenders for the Tag Team Titles. Mark Briscoe tells him that they left their comment in the ring. The Briscoes walk off as we go back to ringside.

Elimination Tag Match
Brutus Magnus, Rob Terry, Jesse Neal, Santino Marella, & Mike Sydal vs. John Cena, Rami Sebei, Steve Corino, Claudio Castagnoli, & Bobby Roode

Outside of the main event, this match could easily have been one of the most anticipated matches of the night. Ever since joining the HWL, John Cena has claimed that he doesn’t care about the fans; that the only thing he cares about is getting what he deserves: the HWL Heavyweight Title. Cena felt that he was being held back due to the fact that he did not win the X-Division Title battle royal after debuting. So, he took his aggression out on the man responsible for his elimination: Brutus Magnus. Since that time, both men had formed groups that wound up doing battle with each other in the weeks leading up tonight. All of this was a preview of what to expect when all ten men shared a ring at the same time.

The crowd could not wait for this match to start, and when it did, it didn’t seem like the action was ever going to slow down. The opening moments of the match saw a number of quick tags, but all of that came to a stop once Claudio Castagnoli and Chris Hero stood in the ring opposite each other. The former best friends stalked each other before locking up. Castagnoli got the better of Hero, with his power advantage, but he was quickly stalled by Matt Morgan, who slapped him in the back. Morgan and Castagnoli got into an argument; Castagnoli nearly pushing Morgan off the apron, and Morgan shoving Castagnoli into a stiff elbow to the jaw by Hero! Hero made the cover, in his team’s corner, for the first – shocking – elimination!

Rami Sebei quickly ran into the ring, attacking Hero from behind. These two are no strangers to each other, and lit up the ring, much to the fans’ delight. Hero tried to slow down Sebei’s faster pace, but he was no match for Sebei’s aerial moves. A superkick sent Hero through the ropes, and while celebrating the move, Sebei got into the face of Hero’s partner, David Otunga. Otunga got into the ring and chased after Sebei, who slid through the ropes. Back in the ring, Bobby Roode blindsided Otunga, tossing him over the top rope. Roode followed to the outside, where he, Otunga, Sebei, and Hero all started brawling outside the ring. The referee started his ten-count, only to watch all four men continue to do battle as they made their way down the aisle. The referee counted to ten, and it was announced that all four men had been eliminated from the match!

Eight minutes into the match, it was down to 3-2 in favor of Team Magnus. Not knowing what to do after the four-man elimination, Jesse Neal, and Steve Corino stepped into the ring. There’s a history that’s well-documented between these two men, stemming from a failed run at the Tag Team Titles. Much like the others in this match, Neal and Corino knew each other and what they were capable of. However, even though they might have been outnumbered in the ring, with Shane Hagadorn at ringside, Team Cena wasn’t out of the match, yet. Hagadorn is famous for being an agitator at ringside and having a history with Neal only helped Hagadorn and his team. Shouting at Neal, Hagadorn was able to take him off his game, allowing Corino to take advantage. Corino was able to cut off Neal from his teammates, as Corino and Cena double teamed Neal with the referee’s back turned. Corino finally put Neal away with a Panama sunrise for the next elimination.

Rob Terry enters the ring for his team. Corino, heeding the advice of his manager, tags out to Cena, who was making his first meaningful steps in this match. The crowd roared with anticipation, at the idea of these two jacked athletes going after each other. The lock-up, in the middle of the ring, looked more like a test of strength, as neither man was willing to give up an inch. The referee was forced to get between them and break it up. They tried again, and this time Cena clocked Terry with a low knee, doubling Terry over. Cena took Terry down with a spinning neck breaker for a two-count. The crowd booed as Cena set up his “Five Moves of Doom”, hitting two hip tosses, ducking a clothesline and taking Terry down with a side backdrop, before hitting the Five Knuckle Shuffle. Cena got up and said “You can’t see me,” to Magnus. Infuriated, Magnus entered the ring, only to get stopped by the ref. Cena connected with another low blow to Terry as Magnus went back to the apron. Cena then hit the Attitude Adjustment for the 1-2-3, making the next elimination.

After two more eliminations, the tide had turned. Magnus now found himself down 1-2. As his team’s sole member, there was a lot he had to do to survive. Cena smugly shook his head and tagged Corino, not giving Magnus the satisfaction of getting his hands on Cena just yet. Magnus and Corino went at it, reigniting their feud over the Tag Team Titles. With the pressure of his team on him, Magnus fought with all he had; no matter what Corino tried, he couldn’t put Magnus away. Out of desperation, Corino low-blowed Magnus and demanded a chair from Shane Hagadorn. Hagadorn grabbed a chair and handed it to Cena, as Corino pulled Magnus up by the arms. Cena swung the chair, but Magnus ducked, and the chair connected squarely on Corino’s skull! Magnus quickly grabbed Cena, tossing him over the top rope, and covered Corino for the 1-2-3, making the next elimination!

Furious, Cena slid back into the ring and attacked Magnus from behind. Magnus hooked the ropes, and the referee had to pull Cena off him. With the ref’s back turned, Hagadorn smacked Magnus across the face! Magnus quickly grabbed Hagadorn, pulling him onto the apron. Quickly, the referee rushed over and warned Magnus to let go. Frustrated, shaking his head, Magnus lets go and turned into a kick to the midsection from Cena. Cena hoisted Magnus up and hit the Attitude Adjustment near the ropes. As Cena made the cover, Hagadorn reached under the ropes and grabbed Magnus’s foot, while the referee counted the final 1-2-3!

After the match, Cena celebrated his team’s victory. Magnus jumped to his feet and rushed after Hagadorn outside the ring, only to get blindsided by a European uppercut from Castagnoli! Cena left the ring, without noticing the crowd, and he, Castagnoli and Hagadorn stood over Magnus.

Backstage, Ted Hanson is with the Tag Team Champions, Tyson Kidd and Eddie Edwards. Hanson congratulates them on their successful defense and asks about them knowing they will now defend the titles against the Briscoes at Unbreakable. Kidd says that the Briscoes have a following for a reason. They proved it out there tonight. Kidd says it’s going to be tough because he and Edwards have something they want. Edwards tells Kidd that he’s never been in the ring with the Briscoes, but Edwards has. Edwards says it’s time to go back to the Dungeon and prepare.

A preview is shown of the next HWL pay-per-view, Unbreakable, as “This is Gonna Hurt” by Hoobastank plays in the background. Unbreakable will take place from Seattle, Washington on August 12th!

Outside their locker room, AJ Styles and Ric Flair are seen with Alisha Hicks. Alisha asks what Styles and Flair must be thinking heading into this match against Matt Morgan. Styles tells Alisha that he and Morgan had traveled the roads together for a very long time. He says there might not be a person, in the business, that he knows better than Morgan. But he says that friendships don’t always last, and it has been apparent for some time that theirs was heading to an end. Tonight, Styles says, it is going to end on his terms.

Smiling, Matt Morgan is seen standing with Ted Hanson. Ted asks for a response from Morgan about the comments just made by AJ Styles. Morgan agrees that AJ probably knows him better than anyone else in the business. But the same could be said for how well Morgan knows AJ, too. Morgan says that their friendship has been on rocky ground for a while and that as of late it has been nothing more than a friendship of convenience. That all ended when Styles got jealous and stabbed Morgan in the back over the World Heavyweight Title. Morgan says that things are going to end tonight, but not the way AJ thinks.

Matt Morgan vs. AJ Styles is coming up next. But the announcers lead into a video recap of the events that led up to this match.

AJ Styles (w/Ric Flair) vs. Matt Morgan

The tension between these two had been building for months, surrounding the Heavyweight Title. Matt Morgan claims to have been overlooked as a viable title contender while part of The Conglomerate and AJ Styles blames Morgan for costing him a shot at being the first-ever four-time champion in HWL history. Ironically, neither one walked away with the title. So the only way to settle things, it was agreed in a brutal fashion, was to have a match to end things once and for all. Morgan started the match on offense and took every opportunity to inflict damage on Styles. Morgan used his size advantage to wear down the three-time champion, but Styles had the help of Ric Flair at ringside. Styles wasn’t going to allow Morgan to win that easily, and fought back, trying to stay alive in the matchup. But, when it looked as if Styles wasn’t going to mount a sizeable comeback, Flair jumped onto the apron. Morgan and Flair began sharing words. From behind, Styles ran into the ropes, but Morgan moved out of the way. Styles ran full-speed into Flair, sending him crashing to the concrete! Styles looked on, stunned, as Morgan prepared himself. As Styles turned around, Morgan connected with the Carbon Footprint for the 1-2-3.

Matt Morgan pinned AJ Styles with the Carbon Footprint in 10:17.

Backstage, John Cena is seen celebrating with his teammates as Ted Hanson approaches. Cena says he doesn’t want to hear Ted’s question because he has one of his own. Cena asks if he witnessed what happened in that ring earlier tonight. Cena says that whether the fans love him or hate him, the one thing they can’t deny is that he told the truth. Cena says that his team went out there tonight and did exactly what he said they would. Now, no one in the HWL will be able to doubt them. Cena says they will not be taken lightly any longer.

The camera shows Adam Cole, standing with his Golden Opportunity briefcase, watching a monitor backstage. The announcers talk about the pressure facing Randy Orton and Kurt Angle to both defend or win the Heavyweight Title and know that Cole could still cash in at any time.

Heavyweight Title Match
Kurt Angle vs. © Randy Orton

In the short history of the HWL, one of the biggest feuds has been between Kurt Angle and Randy Orton. The cause of much of their on-going feud has been the Heavyweight Title. Tonight, Angle and Orton squared off once again, with the belt hanging in the balance. It was a very tough match for both competitors, as they have proven to know each other better than anyone in the business. Orton looked strong from the start, as Angle was clearly fighting an anxiousness that hadn’t been seen in the Olympic gold medalist before. Once Angle’s nerves calmed, he found himself in the thick of things, eventually taking Orton down with an Angle Slam. Orton was able to kick out at two, but Angle was on the offensive. Angle kept control into the latter stages of the match when he put Orton in the Ankle Lock. Orton was able to reach the ropes, breaking the hold. As Angle turned around, ADAM COLE jumped onto the apron and started trash-talking Angle. After a few moments, the referee separated the two and told Cole to leave ringside. As Angle turned around, Orton connected with an RKO out of nowhere for the 1-2-3!
