(7) Eddie Edwards & BJ Whitmer def. Roderick Strong & Jay Lethal. BJ Whitmer was announced as Edwards' mystery partner, since Davey Richards was pulled from the event. Nigel said it was because BJ didn't get to end his career on his own terms, so he was giving him once more chance to say goodbye to the fans. 

-Eddie said goodbye to the ROH fans after the match, as he'll be "going off to do whatever he ends up doing". BJ Whitmer turns on Eddie, along with Roderick Strong, as Jimmy Jacobs comes out to join in. They get on the mic and say that guys like Eddie and Davey, Punk and Bryan, used Ring of Honor as a stepping stone to bigger and better things, but the three of them have been the one constant in the company for a decade.
