Pre-match comments from Dak Draper and Eli Isom

Dak Draper vs. Eli Isom
(15-minute time limit)

Draper used his size advantage to control the match early. Isom rallied with an Enziguri, discus forearm and release Northern Lights suplex. After Draper went outside the ring, Isom hit a springboard moonsault onto him. Back inside the ring, Isom hit a crossbody off the top rope for a near fall and a German suplex into a bridge for a near fall.

Draper answered with a Doctor Bomb for a near fall. Draper went for Magnum KO, but Isom countered with a crucifix for a near fall. Draper went for his finisher again, but this time Isom turned it into a small package for a near fall. Right after Draper and Isom simultaneously connected on punches to the face, the time limit expired and the match was declared a draw.

After the match, both men asked for five more minutes, and the referee decided to allow it. Suddenly, the lights went out. Dalton Castle, wearing a pink suit, sashayed down the aisle accompanied by four barefoot guys wearing pink satin shorts, white t-shirts and pink masks.

Castle entered the ring and said he wanted to spice things up and bring drama back to the show. He said Draper and Isom can help him do that because they have so much potential. Castle told Draper he sees something in him that he likes. He then told Isom he seems something in him he doesn’t like, and he kicked him low. Draper laughed and handed Castle a participation ribbon to present to Isom. Castle responded by kicking Draper low, too.

Pre-match comments from La Faccion Ingobernable

La Facción Ingobernable (ROH World Champion RUSH, Kenny King & Bestia del Ring) vs. Violence Unlimited (Brody King, Homicide & Chris Dickinson)
(20-minute time limit)

Not surprisingly, all six competitors started brawling in and out of the ring right from the start of the match. RUSH choked Brody King with a camera chord on the floor. Later, Brody King ran wild on RUSH and Kenny King. He hit a cannonball on RUSH in the corner for a two count. Violence Unlimited proceeded to triple-team RUSH. Dickinson covered the champion, but Kenny King broke it up.

LFI isolated Dickinson and triple-teamed him. Bestia hit a senton off the top rope onto Dickinson for a two count. Bestia went to the top a second time, but Brody King nailed him in the back with a chair. The referee called for the bell.

The brawl continued. The Foundation (Jay Lethal, Jonathan Gresham, Tracy Williams and Rhett Titus) came out and went after both teams. The show ended with all 10 men fighting.
