Bill Apter made his way to the ring. Apter welcomed everyone to the show and asked everyone what they would be doing after the show. He said that for an hour after the show, the WrestleReunion merchandise room would be open. Apter asked everyone in the first two rows to stand up and they thanked everyone in those seats for their support, and said without them, they wouldn't have been able to bring ROH to LA. He asked everyone to come out tomorrow so they would be able to bring WrestleReunion back
Scott Taylor vs. Larry Zbyszko with Jonny Fairplay as the special referee.
Fairplay was escorted to the ring by Alexis Arquette. Fairplay ripped on the legends and said the only real world champion was David Arquette, so he was bringing the "Best Arquette", Alexis to the ring.
Taylor took the mic and said he's wrestled all over the world and up until tonight, there was only one wrestling company he never worked for, ROH. He said that Hulk Hogan and TNA and John Cena and the WWE don't have. He said that after being in the back all night, he saw "goddamn passion." He turned his attention to Fairplay and said that everyone knows he's the master of the worm. He asked Fairplay if he's had a worm in his mouth or not.
I know this will shock the Internet, but there was a lot of stalling. The crowd wasn't happy and chanted, "This is bullsh**." Poor JJ Dillon, who was watching, fled the scene. Hotty went for the worm and Fairplay turned him away from Larry, who then schoolboyed him for the pin.
Your winner, Larry Zbyszko!
It was every bit of the classic you expected it to be.
Hotty laid out Fairplay and went to give him the worm. Colt Cabana hit the ring, then laid out Hotty, gave Fairplay the worm...and the Stinkface. The crowd loved it.
Apparently the Stinkface on Fairplay was a rib as he didn't know it was coming.
