  • Low Ki (w/Julius Smokes) defeated Jay Lethal
    • During the match, Low Ki and Smokes got into repeated arguments with Lethal's mother, who was in attendance. Low Ki forced Lethal to tap out to the Dragon Sleeper
    • After the match, Low Ki told Smokes to hold up Lethal. He then got on the microphone and said that respect is either earned or taught, and Lethal hadn't earned Low Ki's respect. Low Ki raised his hand as if the slap Lethal, but stopped and told Smokes to let him go. As Low Ki went to leave the ring, he walked back over the Lethal and kicked him in the head.
  • Nigel McGuinness defeated Homicide (w/ Julius Smokes)
    • McGuinness pinned Homicide with a roll up.
  • Generation Next (Alex Shelley, Austin Aries, Jack Evans & Roderick Strong) defeated the Second City Saints (CM Punk & Ace Steel), John Walters & Jimmy Jacobs (w/Ricky Steamboat) in an eight-man elimination tag match
    • Shelley and Aries were the final two survivers after Aries pinned Walters with a 450 Splash.
    • Before the match, Steamboat cut a promo on Mick Foley for calling ROH was "Ring of Hardcore", saying he didn't want to see "garbage" wrestling and "stunt men" in a promotion based on athletic wrestling.
    • After the match, Shelley said the only spot left to take in ROH was Samoa Joe, and said he was coming after him and the ROH World Championship. Aries took the microphone away, saying he was going to be the one to defeat Joe and become the next ROH World Champion. Shelley then said that when he started Generation Next, he knew it would come down to one of them for the ROH World Championship and told Aries to remember where his loyalty lie.
  • The Midnight Express (Stan Lane, Bobby Eaton, Dennis Condrey and Jim Cornette) came out and addressed the crowd, each talking breifly about their time in the Midnight Express and thanking the fans for supporting, with Cornette also talking about how they wished Ray Taylor was there with them. Cornette then thanked the fans of Philadelphia and the fans of Ring of Honor for coming out and supporting them. Prince Nana came out and told the Midnight Express he wanted to introduce them to the newest member of The Embassy, Ricky Morton. Morton came out and confronted the Midnight Express and how the Rock n' Roll Express were the better tag team, and lashed out at the Philadelphia fans saying they were the only one who would buy into the Midnight Express' lies and how they disrespected The Embassy. A fight soon broke out between the Midnight Express and The Embassy, with Morton running away.
  • Samoa Joe defeated Bryan Danielson to retain the ROH World Championship
    • Joe forced Danielson to submit to The Choke.
    • After the match, CM Punk confronted Joe, wanting to know when he was going to get his rematch from World Title Classic. Danielson cut off Punk, saying that he should get a rematch first, because he wrestled harder in his match than Punk did in his. Before Joe would respond, Punk was attacked by all four members of Generation Next. Joe and Danielson backed away, and only interfered after Aries got in Joe's face about the title. As Joe and Danielson began fighting Generation Next, The Rottweilers hit the ring and began fighting with Punk and Joe.
