– Steven Richards was in attendance and spoke with some fans during intermission.
– During the four-way, Dixie landed awkwardly on Homicide’s Cop Killer and was helped to the back by a number of officials.
– There was some fear that Hardy might risk his overness with the crowd by going overboard in pushing his WWE storyline as a shoot. Hardy instead went the safe route by giving a rather low-key promo that pandered to the ROH crowd and helped sustain the unbelievable face reaction he got upon first appearing in the ring. It took a series of four superplexes and the assisted victory against Christopher Daniels, who was also extremely over, to cause some of the crowd to turn.
– ROH announced a return to the venue for October; the tickets were not moving overwhelmingly fast, which confirms that the massive crowd had very much to do with Matt Hardy’s debut.
