The show opened up with a promo from Matt Taven getting riled up over not being recognized as The ROH World Champion.
NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis is filling in for Colt Cabana (who is working The New Japan Cup) on the announce team. Aldis joins Ian Riccaboni & Caprice Coleman to call the action.
- "The Villain" Marty Scurll def. Kenny King via pinfall.
- Jeff Cobb def. Shane Taylor via pinfall following Tour Of The Islands (x2!) to retain his ROH World Television Title.
- Mayu Iwatani def. Kelly Klein via pinfall to retain The ROH Women Of Honor World Title. After the match, Matt Taven comes down to the ring and says that he can't wait another moment. Taven then says that he can't stand the disrespect he has been receiving as The "Real" World Champion. Taven then says that he wants the match right now. Jay Lethal's music hits and the champion heads out.
- Matt Taven vs. Jay Lethal (c) for The ROH World Title ends in a time limit draw. After the match, Marty Scurll heads to the ring, picks up the title and puts it around his shoulder. Scurll then heads up the ramp and to the back with it. Taven & Lethal finally get to their feet. Taven doesn't shake Lethal's hand and goes to the back.
Rapper Mega Ran makes his way out and performs "Going To The Garden." Bully Ray ends up coming out to the ring and says that he thought the song sucks and rips on Mega Ran. Bully then makes fun of video games and says that Mega Ran probably played wrestling video games and picked his character, Bubba Ray. Mega Ran then says that he actually picked D-Von. Bully then shoves both guys and kicks them out of the ring. Bully then says that he is offended by his song and that he is the only one who has actually wrestled at MSG. Bully then picks on some kids and says that he is going to slap them if they don't go sit down. A "They're just kids!" chant from the crowd then starts up. Bully then says that nobody can stand up to him at the garden. Crowd with a "Flip" chant. Bully shuts that down and then says that he offers up an open challenge to anyone in the world, any company, anyone retired or still wrestling in a Street Fight.
- Rush def. Bandido via pinfall following the corner dropkick. After the match, Dalton Castle heads into the ring to get a closer look at Rush. On the mic, Castle says that Rush is a good challenge for him and wonders if they could get in the ring at Madison Square Garden. Rush wonders who Castle is and cuts a promo in English & Spanish. It sounds like he accepted before heading to the back.
The Kingdom left the build so TK O'Ryan & Vinny Marseglia vs. Mark Haskins & Tracy Williams won't take place. Also, Jonathan Gresham took a chair-shot to the knee when trying to save Lethal. Silas Young, who was scheduled to face Gresham, also attacked Gresham backstage, so that match won't take place either. Young then heads to commentary before the main event.
- Villain Enterprises (PCO & Brody King) def. The Briscoes to become The New ROH World Tag Team Champions.
