- Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian did a promo where they mentioned that Ray Rowe was "suspended" for 30 days after accidentally injuring a fan during their brawl at the last tapings. They demanded that ROH fire both members of War Machine, then Hanson came out and attacked.

Daniels and Kazarian beat him down and tried to cut off his beard, but the ring crew made the save before they could get more than a small piece of it.

- ROH World Television Champion Kenny King defeated Caprice Coleman to retain his title

Punishment Martinez, Shane Taylor, and Silas Young (who will be challenging for the TV title at Final Battle) attacked King after the match

- The Briscoes came out and were goading Bully Ray and Tommy Dreamer. Security and Joe Koff then tried to hold Bully Ray and Dreamer back, with Koff making the Briscoes vs. Bully Ray & Dreamer in a hardcore match official for Final Battle. The teams then brawled as security tried to break it up. The crowd went crazy for that.

- Matt Taven defeated Jay Lethal

Scurll offered Lethal his umbrella to hit Taven with, but Lethal declined and got rolled up. After that, Taven set up a match against Will Ospreay for Final Battle.

- Dalton Castle, Silas Young, Hanson, Jonathan Gresham & Marty Scurll defeated ROH World Champion Cody Rhodes, Scorpio Sky, Josh Woods, Chris Sabin & Punishment Martinez

This was a Christmas-themed ten-man tag match with random partners. Cody teased that he was going to give away a gift before the match but stomped on it. At one point, he and Scurll hugged it out after everyone tried to instigate them into fighting each other.

- Cody and Brandi Rhodes came out for a contract signing for Cody vs. Dalton Castle at Final Battle. Cody was wearing a fur coat and they had assistants with them. Castle told Cody that he looks ridiculous and ended up putting him through the table to stand tall heading into Final Battle.

- The Elite (Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks) defeated Rocky Romero, Trent Barreta & Chuck Taylor to retain the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship

Omega and the Bucks defended the titles (that are held by the Bucks & Hangman Page) under the "Bullet Club rule." They retained in a wild match, then cut a promo to close the show.
