Singles Match: Ari Daivari (w/ Mark Sterling and Varsity Athletes) vs. Mark Briscoe
– Mark won with a “Jay Driller”.
After the match, everyone attacked Briscoe before FTR headed to the ring to even the odds and make the save.
Eddie Kingston spoke for the first time since the Supercard of Honor. He revealed he had been dealing with a hernia injury since September that may require surgery, but he didn’t use that as an excuse to miss out. He had a strategy and he abandoned, using his fight in the same way that Arturo Gotti would do in his fights. Kingston admitted that Castagnoli was the better man, having beaten Kingston so badly that he couldn’t sleep that night. Kingston admitted that he wanted to quit, as Castagnoli said he would before the Supercard of Honor. However, Kingston said he needed to learn from the defeat and move on.
Singles Match: Kelly Madan vs. Skye Blue
– Blue won with a “Sky Fall”.
Singles Match: Darius Martin vs. Mike Bennett (w/ The Kingdom)
– Martin won via DQ after an attack by Matt Taven.
The Kingdom went after Martin’s ankle before Action Andretti came out to help.
Singles Match: Tracy Williams vs. Wheeler Yuta
– Yuta won with a “Dragon Sleeper”.
Darius Martin and Action Andretti appear. Martin remarked that he would not let The Kingdom continue to outnumber him, so he recruited Andretti to help him. They challenged The Kingdom to a future tag team match.
Tag Team Match: ROH Pure Champion Katsuyori Shibata and Alex Coughlin vs. The Workhorsemen (Anthony Henry and JD Drake)
– Shibata and Coughlin won with a “PK” on Henry.
After the match, Coughlin challenged Shibata for the Pure Championship.
Singles Match: Little Mean Kathleen vs. Willow Nightingale
– Nightingale won with an “Oklahoma Stampede”.
Singles Match: Stu Grayson (w/ Evil Uno) vs. Tony Nese (w/ Mark Sterling)
– Grayson won with a “Fireman’s Carry Backbreaker”.
After the match, The Righteous (Dutch and Vincent) took the stage and faced the Dark Order, although the announcers made it clear that their focus was solely on Grayson.
The Righteous were backstage. They imply that the Dark Order left Stu Grayson behind during his hiatus from AEW, and that they want to help him.
Proving Ground Match: ROH Women’s World Champion Athena vs. Ashley D’Amboise
– Athena won with an “O-Face”.
Lexy Nair was backstage with Ashley D’Amboise. D’Amboise expected more honor in ROH before being attacked by Athena. She welcomed D’Amboise into ROH by throwing her headlong at the belt.

– Castagnoli retained the belt with a “Neutralizer”.
