- CM Punk started the show by offering Hangman Page a title match. Page did not show up and CM Punk moved on to verbally attacking Jon Moxley, calling him the third-best guy in his group, a theme throughout his career, and saying that he's the second best Jo(h)n he will beat for a championship in Chicago. Jon Moxley came down and both men would trade verbal barbs before engaging in a pull-apart brawl.

2 Out Of 3 Falls: Bryan Danielson vs. Daniel Garcia

Ricky Steamboat is the special guest timekeeper for this one and Chris Jericho is a special guest commentator.

The match starts out heavy with both men striking each other. Garcia quickly got the advantage utilizing maneuvers such as a back suplex on the outside of the ring. Garcia got the first fall utilizing a Dragon Sleeper. He would capitalize on the momentum and DDT Danielson on the concrete shortly after. This busted Danielson open. Danielson would eventually bust Garcia open by slamming his head on the square steel post. Danielson would get a quick second fall victim by rolling up Garcia.

The last fall was a little more back and forth with Danielson being more in control than he had been throughout the entire match. Eventually, he would stomp on Garcia’s head and get the victory with the LeBell lock.

Winner: Bryan Danielson, 2-1 falls.
