(1) The Decade (B.J. Whitmer & Jimmy Jacobs) beat A.C.H. & Tadarius Thomas.
ROH announced that Paul London would not be appearing due to travel issues.
(2) Hanson beat Raymond Rowe in the Top Prospect tournament finals to earn a future ROH TV Title shot.
(3) Mike Bennett (w/Maria Kanellis) beat The Romantic Touch via submission. Beforehand, Maria cut a face promo about women being degraded in wrestling and tried to make it a heel move. Didn't work. Bennett is ready for WWE.
Former ROH TV champion Matt Taven was given instructions by Truth Martini to get serious, but Taven says he doesn't need Truth and ditched him.
(4) ROH TV champion Tommaso Ciampa beat Matt Taven and Jay Lethal in a three-way match to retain the ROH TV Title. Ciampa has a huge future and everyone looked impressive.
(5) Cedric Alexander beat Andrew Everett. Cerdic win after Everett missed a 450 splash. Best match thus far. Incredible action.
(6) Kevin Steen beat Kyle O'Reilly via submission. Slow-paced match and the crowd became restless.
Steen and Cliff Compton then had an exchange. Compton ended up putting Steen through a table on the floor with a Superfly Splash.
(7) Chris Hero & Michael Elgin beat ROH World champion Adam Cole & Matt Hardy and The Briscoes in a three-team elimination match; Hero earned a future ROH Title shot.
The eliminations: Hardy hit Mark with the Twist of Fate, eliminating the Briscoes. Jay then attacked Cole as the Briscoes headed to the back. Then, Hero pinned Cole with a rolling elbow to the back of the head to earn the future title shot. Hardy attacked Hero afterward.
ROH announced afterward that it will be Cole vs. Hero for the ROH Title on the 12th anniversary show on February 21 in Philadelphia.
