*ROH Pure champion Nigel McGuinness pinned Delirious.

*In their second ever singles bout in ROH, Low Ki pinned Christopher Daniels. Daniels offered to shake Ki’s hand (a play off the original 2002 angle where Daniels refused to show anyone respect and broke the code of honor) and was blown off by Ki, so the two reversed roles.
