2. Michael Elgin defeated Andy Ridge. Elgin won with a twisting powerbomb.
Steve Corino hit the ring for his granted interview segment. He talked about his recovery as well as Christiopher Danielsâ€™ decision to join The House of Truth. Corino says he has a sponsor now, a returning face to Ring of Honor. With that, he is interrupted by Mike Bennett.
Corino told Bennett to drop “Brutal” Bob Evans as his trainer. They jaw-jacked on the microphone with Bennett proclaiming that heâ€™ll push Corino â€œoff the wagonâ€. That led to Grizzly Redwood hitting the ring.
3. Mike Bennett defeated Grizzly Redwood. Bennett won via piledriver.
4. Mark and Jay Briscoe defeated The All Night Express (Kenny King and Rhett Titus) in a first blood match. Referee Paul Turner saw Rhett bleeding. However, he failed to notice Markâ€™s own blood loss before calling for the bell. Mark was â€œcrazy gushingâ€¦nasty!”
These two teams will meet on May 21st at â€œSupercard of Honor VIâ€ in a Chicago Street Fight!

8. Roderick Strong beat El Generico in a No Disqualification match. Strong won via a backbreaker style move from the second rope through a table. The House of Truth interfered throughout, leading to great nearfalls.
