The show opens with the intro video.
Brody King vs. Darby Allin
Action almost immediately to the floor, King goozles Allin against the ringpost but Darby slips away and throws him into the ring. Back inside, big lariat from Brody, and he proceeds to dominate the match for the next while, just slinging Allin around.
Throwing him out of the ring, into the barricade, leaving Darby laying as we go to break.

Mounting a comeback, back inside, charging, Brody cuts him off and hangs him in the tree of woe for vicious double chops. Back on the rally, Yoshi Tonic... NOPE! A seated inverted double chickenwing of sorts (Zack Sabre, Jr. used to do it but damn if I can remember what he called it) but King slings him off and into the turnbuckles!
Back and forth on the apron, Brody blocks the Diamond Dust and grabs a hanging sleeper, dropping Darby to the floor! King happy to take the countout, referee Paul Turner gets to nine and Allin slides back in! Brody scoops him up...

A horn sounds.

Shane Strickland lets the “OH BASK IN HIS GLORY” chants go for a minute before trying to get a “WHOSE HOUSE? SWERVE’S HOUSE” chant going and pointing out that he’s got his man Kevin Gates in the crowd to show some love, and Keith Lee asks him when he’s dropping the deluxe.
Lee expresses his eternal thanks to Swerve and the opportunity to win the tag titles and to all of us. Keith takes his hoodie off because he’s hot and Swerve chants for him to take it off, and he revealse the same “AND NEW” shirt that Strickland is wearing. Lee says if it’s up to him, they don’t look down, so if you want a title shot, you better reach.
Enter Tony Nese and “Smart” Mark Sterling.
Sterling says they got lucky with their win and Keith is just lucky Shane didn’t stab him in the back, and pushes the petition to get Strickland taken off the roster. He’s here to get Kevin Gates to sign the petition, but he refuses and steps up to Mark. Gates drops Nese with a right hand!
Swerve grabs the celebration cake (there was a celebration cake on the ramp) and smashes it into Sterling’s face!
And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, triple champs FTR make their entrance for an in-ring interview with Tony Schiavone.

If that little eight year old girl will fight that hard, her daddy’s got no choice but to fight that hard to create a legacy she can be proud of. At Death Before Dishonor, he’s gonna fight like an eight year old girl and beat the Briscoes’ ass.
Backstage, Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, and Satnam Singh are interviewed.
Dutt loses his mind talking about how much he doesn’t care about Christopher Daniels and how Jay is gonna become the new ROH World TV Champion.

Lethal accepts the challenge.
