1. BJ Whitmer & Damian Martinez vs. War Machine.
Colt Cabana joins Kevin Kelly on commentary to start. Another wild, out of control brawl between the two teams, and no sign of Kevin Sullivan. What gives there? No mention of Steve Corino, although he's still in the opening montage (though not for much longer). Referee Paul Turner has no choice but to count both teams out when they can't beat the 20 count.
Winner: None. Double-countout.
2. Non-title: The Kingdom vs. Corey Hollis, John Skyler, & Joe D'Aug.
Protracted squash. Mike Posey is back as a referee. No mention of his past tagging with Hollis as Alabama Attitude, so no issues here. The Kingdom hit the Super Nova triple powerbomb on D'Aug on the floor to take him out of the match early, then worked over Skyler & Hollis before finishing Skyler with Super Nova.
Winners: The Kingdom.
Post-match, Matt Taven cut a promo issuing an open challenge. Dalton Castle answered, along with the Boys. Cabana left the desk and attacked the Boys to continue his issue with Castle as the Kingdom laughed at the faces.
3. ROH tag titles: The Young Bucks vs. the Tempura Boys.
Cabana was sent packing for leaving the desk to attack Castle, which implies that Kelly is the new storyline matchmaker with Nigel McGuinness gone (to WWE). The Jacksons took their time with the Tempuras, who got a couple of hope spots, but were nowhere near close to winning the titles. It was such that Matt scored the pin after a hanging springboard legdrop instead of More Bang For Your Buck.
Winners: The Young Bucks.
4. Lio Rush vs. Chris Sabin vs. Alex Shelley vs. Jonathan Gresham vs. Donovan Dijak vs. Jay White.
TV champ Marty Scurll takes over on color commentary. About what you'd expect, as six babyfaces vie to claim the #1 contender's position for the TV title. The Rebellion came out late in the match and interfered, prompting White, Gresham, and the Machine Guns to chase them away, leaving Rush & Dijak all alone in a meeting of the 2014 & 2016 Top Prospect winners. Dijak ended it with Feast Your Eyes.
Winner: Donovan Dijak.
