Eddie Edwards beat Michael Elgin
After the match, Roderick Strong ran in to confront Eddie Edwards.  When it looked like Strong and Elgin were going to attack Edwards, Nigel McGuinness climbed into the ring to help Edwards.  They stared each other down before Strong and Elgin ran off and McGuinness and Strong shook hands.
The crowd was great and managed to keep the energy up even though the show lasted about 5 hours.
