Kevin Steen & El Generico def. Sami Callihan & Tony Kozina
The finish saw Generico hit a brainbuster on Kozina for the win.

Backstage, Kyle Durden was with Roderick Strong. Strong promised to beat ROH World Champion Austin Aries tonight and prove himself worthy of a title shot in the future.

D’Lo Brown def. John Kermit
Brown got the quick win with a Sky High on Kermit. After the match, Kyle Durden interviewed Brown who said he hoped Jerry Lynn would retire, rides off into the sunset or just shrivels up and dies.

A “paid messsage” promo airs with The Embassy.

Backstage, Kyle Durden was with Nigel McGuinness. McGuinness said he took his eye of the ball last week when he lost to Tyler Black and said it would never happen again.

Tyler Black’s music hit and he walked out to the arena. Black talked about Jerry Lynn’s career and the retirement rumors. Jerry Lynn then came out and said he wanted to address a few things. The first involved D’Lo Brown’s comments earlier. Lynn said Ring of Honor was what he needed to give his career a shot in the arm. He said at the age of 46 years old he is considering slowing down, but no one ever retires from pro wrestling. Lynn brought up Black eliminating him to lose his title not long ago and said when they meet again it will be huge for both of their careers. The segment ended with Lynn and Black shaking hands.

ROH World Heavyweight Champion Austin Aries. def. Roderick Strong in a non-title match
Lots of brawling inside and outside the ring early on. Lots of back and forth action between the two as well with plenty of nearfalls. Strong hit an impressive gutbuster followed by a knee to the head on Aries. The finish saw Strong hit a backbreaker and then attempt a Boston Crab, but Aries countered and rolled up Strong while putting his feet on the ropes for the win.
