1. IN-RING INTERVIEW W/ NEW ROH WORLD CHAMPION MICHAEL ELGIN
Elgin speaks about winning the ROH World Title and says how he wants to defend the title against everyone.
THE KINGDOM (ADAM COLE, MICHAEL BENNETT, MATT HARDY & MARIA) interrupted but before they could jump Elgin, WAR MACHINE (ROWE & HANSON) came out to even the odds. A brawl erupted and the challenge was issued and accepted to start the Six Man War on the spot....
2. SIX MAN WAR
MICHAEL ELGIN/WAR MACHINE (HANSON & ROWE) VS. ADAM COLE/MICHAEL BENNETT/MATT HARDY W/ MARIA KANELLIS went to a NO CONTEST when JAY & MARK BRISCOE ran in and the referees could not control the mayhem.
After the bell, Cole and Bennett were laid out by War Machine but Hardy managed to escape down the aisle. Elgin said that since Hardy is the only one standing he challenges him to an ROH Title match in the main event! Hardy gladly accepted!
3. IN RING FISH TANK W/ BOBBY FISH & KYLE O'REILLY
Bobby notes that due to the overwhelming worldwide success of the Fish Tank, their guest tonight will be the man that was the guest on the episode that started it all... very first episode.... CHEESEBURGER. After a little back-and-forth dialogue, Bobby was insulted by Cheeseburger calling him a weiner and issued a challenge to Cheese. Fish was so confident in himself that he put his half of ROH World Tag Team Titles on the line so if Cheese beat Bobby, then Kyle O'Reilly & Cheeseburger would be the Tag Team Champions.
BOBBY FISH defeated CHEESEBURGER
After the bell, reDRagon attempted to give Cheeseburger Chasing the Dragon but CEDRIC ALEXANDER ran in....
4. CEDRIC ALEXANDER defeated KYLE O'REILLY

Before the match, JIMMY JACOBS (originally scheduled for the match) gets on the mic and says contrary to popular belief, The Decade rewards those who do good and rewarded Tadarius for his actions earlier by giving him the shot of a lifetime. Jacobs gives Tadarius his spot in the match!
