Roddy Piper made a pre-show autograph appearance. There was a long line for his autograph.
Episode 1 Taping
(1) Raymond Rowe beat Kongo in a Top Prospect tournament match. Prince Nana called the action and Michael Elgin confronted Kongo post-match.
(2) Corey Hollis beat Mike Posey in a Top Prospect tournament match. Hollis was initially scheduled to face "Benchmark" Bill Daley, but Daley pulled out, so Hollis's tag partner, Posey, took the mic and lost.
(3) Jay Lethal beat Caprice Coleman via Lethal Injection. Lethal mentioned ROH TV champion Tommaso Ciampa, setting his sights on the new champ.
(4) Kevin Steen beat Chris Hero. The Decade came out and distracted Hero, but Steen was not aware of it and he did not join them. Afterward, Cliff Compton attacked Steen while Steen was walking to the back.
Episode 2 Taping
(1) Andrew Everett beat The Romantic Touch via small package in a Top Prospect tournament match.
(2) Hanson beat Cheeseburger via spin kick in a Top Prospect tournament match.
(3) Mark Briscoe vs. Adam Page turned into a tag match...
(3b) The Decade (Jimmy Jacobs & B.J. Whitmer) beat Mark Briscoe & Adam Page. Roderick Strong was on commentary.
(4) ROH TV champion Tommaso Ciampa beat Silas Young to retain the ROH TV Title. Before the match, former TV champ Matt Taven came out to shake Ciampa's hand, but Young attacked him. A post-match beat down was thwarted by Lethal and Taven, leading to a three-way staredown.
Episode 3 Taping
(1) Ray Rowe beat Cory Hollis in a Top Prospect tournament match.
(2) R.D. Evans beat Mike Sells with help from Veda Scott, who said Evans is now 14-0. So, Elgin came out to end the streak.
(3) R.D. Evans beat Michael Elgin via DQ. Elgin hit his finisher, but didn't pin Evans. Instead, he got chairs and powerbombed Evans through chairs for a DQ to undeservedly move Evans to 15-0.
(4) Matt Taven beat T.D. Thomas via top-rope splash.
(5) Jay Briscoe beat Bobby Fish via Jay Driller after failed interference from Adam Cole.
Bobby Cruise announced that ROH will return to Nashville on June 21 for "Best in the World."

(1) Hanson beat Andrew Everett in a Top Prospect tournament match.
(2) Mike Bennett beat Cedric Alexander via submission to the Anaconda Vice with the help of Maria Kanellis.
