Brian Johnson kicks off the match as the first entrant and cuts a promo about how he’ll show everyone that it’s “Mecca vs. Everybody”, especially in his hometown. Johnson and Milonas square off, but the third entrant is the other half of The Bouncers, Beer City Bruiser. The Bouncers gang up on “The Mecca”, and the next entrant, Danhausen comes to the ring.

Main Card:

Daltion Castle vs. Eli Isom

The match picks up quickly, and Isom dives onto Castle outside the ring. Isom is fired up, and he sends Castle into the barricade before he suplexes him in the ring. The presence of The Boys at ringside doesn’t initially help Castle, but he rallies with a suplex of his own. The former ROH World Champion drills Isom with a running knee that sends him crashing to the floor. Back in the ring, Castle grounds Isom and slams him to the mat when he tries to rally. Isom rallies and clotheslines Casle; he then drops his foe with a neckbreaker. Dak Draper, who had been a guest on commentary, comes to ringside and pulls Castle out of the ring. Isom responds by diving onto The Boys, as Draper pulls Castle out of the way.

To remove Draper from the equation, Isom kicks him below the belt. Castle capitalizes on the distraction with The Bang-a-rang, after Isom counters one attempt, for the win.

Winner: Dalton Castle

Jake Atlas vs. Rust Taylor

The two opponents square off and trade holds. Rust traps Atlas in an ankle lock, but he escapes. They continue to feel each other out, and Atlas chops Rust. By targeting Atlas’ arm, Rust controls the match for a minute, but Atlas blasts Rust with some stiff strikes. Rust kicks Atlas’ arm and blasts him with elbows to the shoulder.

Homicide dives onto his opponents outside the ring, and Dickinson pins Moriarty with a Spicolli Driver.

Winners: Violence Unlimited

The losing team argues after the bout, but The Foundation comes to the ring to stop it. Jay Lethal says it’s been a long time since there’s been a ROH pay-per-view without him on it. But he says watching so many talented wrestlers excites him about the future. He puts over Eli Isom and points to the Women’s World Championship Match as something to be excited bout. He shakes hands with LSG and calls Walters a legend. Lethal then shakes hands with Moriarty and says he wishes the AEW signee could be part of the ROH Pure Division. He names some of the greatest “pure” wrestlers in history like Samoa Joe and AJ Styles while many members of the ROH roster stand on the stage.

He states that the wrestling world is doing “pretty damn good”, but it’s time for “pure” wrestling to prevail. Lethal passionately says we love professional wrestling and notes that pure wrestling is not new; it’s been here for a long time. Lethal says no matter what company you’re in, the pure division is thriving here in ROH.
