The show began with Iron Mike Tyson joining the commentary team.

The first match of the night saw Orange Cassidy defeating Katsuyori Shibata clean after two Orange Punches.

Toni Storm was interviewed backstage and she asked why Jamie Hayter – her former roommate – had become such a bully and how she had allowed Britt Baker to manipulate her.

Next up, Claudio Castagnoli, Bryan Danielson and William Regal were interviewed backstage with both of them making valid arguments as to why they should be the next challenger for the ROH World Championship. The segment ended with William Regal addressing Chris Jericho directly telling him to make his choice.

Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter defeated Skye Blue & Madison Rayne. After the match Toni Storm came out and brawled with Jamie Hayter getting Hayter in the Texas Cloverleaf to which Hayter tapped. Britt Baker hit Storm with the championship belt to break it up and the segment ended with Baker helping Hayter hold up the Interim Women’s Championship.

Backstage, Tony Schiavone appealed to Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara to stop attacking commentators. Jericho was asked to respond to Castagnoli & Danielson’s challenge for the ROH title. Jericho said he would accept both their challenges but then also folded Guevara into the match making it a four-way match. Jericho said that once Claudio and Bryan were out of the way, Sammy would “do the right thing” which left Sammy grimacing.

Ricky Starks came to the ring and announced that he was entering the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament.

Backstage Sammy Guevara was interviewed again where he challenged Bryan Danielson to a 2 out of 3 falls match on Dynamite next week.

During the “main event” promo, Wardlow cut off Samoa Joe’s promo and walked off without him.

The full field was then announced for the World Title Eliminator Tournament with the first match taking place on this week’s Dynamite and the rest taking place on next week’s Rampage:

Eddie Kingston vs. Ethan Page

Bandido vs. Rush

Lance Archer vs. Ricky Starks

Brian Cage vs. Dante Martin


In the main event, Wardlow & Samoa Joe defeated The Gates of Agony. After the match Powerhouse Hobbs came out on the ramp. Wardlow shoved Samoa Joe out of the way to jaw-jack with Hobbs seemingly further seemingly teasing dissent between the two.
