(4) Roderick Strong beat ROH TV champion Matt Taven in an ROH Title tournament First Round match.
(5) "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin beat Paul London in an ROH Title tournament First Round match. Elgin was the hometown star in this match.

(7) Kevin Steen beat Brian Kendrick in an ROH Title tournament First Round match.
(8) Adam Cole beat Jay Lethal in an ROH Title tournament Second Round match. Cole advances to the semi-finals.
(9) American Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards) beat new ROH tag champions Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) to capture the ROH Tag Titles. For the finish, Eddie had Rocky in powerbomb position and Davey came off the top rope for a backbreaker on the knees.
As a result of Saturday's tournament matches, the next tournament matches include:
Bracket 2 - Karl Anderson vs. Michael Elgin and Roderick Strong vs. Kevin Steen in second round matches.
Bracket 1 is TBD. Adam Cole is in the semi-finals. Tommaso Ciampa is in the second round, but the lack of an outcome for Bennett-Whitmer will have to be addressed to determine who faces Ciampa. Or, if Ciampa gets a bye to the semi-finals to face Cole.
