– Rhino defeated Eddie Edwards. This was an ‘Anything Goes’ match with the winner facing the World champion at ‘Death Before Dishonor X’. Rhino managed to pick up the win after a referee stoppage following a Gore through a table.

– Mike Mondo defeated Mike Bennett, TJ Perkins, Roderick Strong, Jay Lethal and Tommaso Ciampa. The winner of this six man mayhem got a TV title shot at ‘Death Before Dishonor X’. It was Mike Mondo who won that opportunity after a double arm DDT on Bennett.
– They hyped the next TV tapings in Baltimore (9/22) as “the biggest wrestling event in Baltimore history.”
– Tag Title Tournament Round 1: Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs defeated The Bravados. Jacobs & Corino were put into the tournament after Haas & Titus joined forces which meant they were one team short. They say that Cornette made them put up their ROH contracts to enter so if they lose at any point during the tournament, they are gone from ROH. Jacobs & Corino pick up the win and after the match, the Guardians of Truth attack them. Steen comes out to make the save but then gets Gore’d by Rhino.
– Jay Lethal and Matt Taven fought to a no contest. Lethal got on the mic before the match and said that he had spoke to Cornette about getting a World Title shot but was told he didn’t have a killer instinct. At the beginning of the match, Lethal low blows Taven and then hits the Lethal Injection on the referee for what we assume will be a no contest.

– Mike Sydal defeated Mike Bennett by count out. During the match, Mike Mondo came to ringside and kissed Maria. That forced Bennett to chase after him to the back and subsequently lose the match by countout.
– Tommaso Ciampa defeated Mike Posey. Ciampa apparently had some new entrance music and RD Evans joined Kevin Kelly & Nigel McGuinness on commentary. Ciampa easily won the match and afterwards, Prince Nana attacked RD Evans before Ciampa made the save.
– ROH World TV Title Match: Adam Cole and Michael Elgin fought to a no contest. The match was ended when referee Todd Sinclair was accidentally taken taken out by Cole who was being powerbombed by Elgin.
