im Cornette kicks off the second half by saying he won't take too much time since the ROH main events go longer than a minute and 28 seconds, drawing a f*** TNA chant from the crowd. He politely asks them who is at their first ROH show (getting a loud reaction) and how many people think ROH is the best wrestling around today (getting an even louder reaction). Cornette guarantees everyone there and on iPPV that they will always do their best to justify our time and money on their product. He then asks Davey Richards to come join him in the ring, and asks him for his thoughts on his match tonight against Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin. Davey says he has a lot of respect for Benjamin and Haas, but even though they've come into ROH and steamrolled over everyone, but the American Wolves are on another level and when they get in the ring with them, they'll be in for a fight. He thanks the fans for the reaction they gave Eddie Edwards because he embodies everything there is to do with honor. Davey is proud of Eddie and people might think he's getting jealous, but he's known what Eddie was about all along and he's always had the spirit and honor it takes to be a champion. Cornette brings up Davey's tough break against Roderick Strong at Final Battle, but points out that Davey has been undefeated since and avenged that loss to Roderick last night. Cornette brings up Davey's quest to make sure he's at his best the next time he challenges for the World Title since it will be the last time and he wants to be ready, but tells Davey that ROH is a business and needs to sell tickets and DVDs and says that they're going to make that match. Davey looks very unhappy about being put in the position to fight Eddie, and says he understands ROH's position, but this is Eddie's time and he's not saying he'll never fight Eddie because they've already done it once, but this is Eddie's time and he's not going to be the guy to destroy his brother's dream.
Eddie Edwards' music hits and he comes out to join in the conversation, and Cornette asks for his position on this. Eddie says he feels the same way as Davey because they're partners, Wolves, and family...but Davey said he didn't want to be the one to crush his dreams and he made it sound like it would be a foregone conclusion that he would beat Eddie. He knows Davey didn't mean it that way, and points out that the one time they did wrestle, he came out on top. Cornette says he's not trying to break up any friendships, but there's a lot of money on the table and asks them to consider it. Davey says he knows that at the end of the day Cornette is a promoter, and if they end up having to fight each other then that'll happen, but tonight it's about the American Wolves against the ROH World Tag Team Champions. Eddie finishes by telling Haas & Benjamin that tonight, the hunt is on!
