G1 Supercard Results
– Kenny King won the Honor Rumble. This pre-show battle royal was for a shot at the ROH World Championship. The entrants, in order, were Kenny King, Minoru Suzuki, Cheeseburger, Beery City Bruiser, Sho, Shingo Takagi, Bushi, Yoh, Raheem Ali, Rhett Titus, LSG, Ryusuke Taguchi, Will Ferrara, Chase Owens, Rocky Romero, Brian Milonas, Bad Luck Fale, Jonathan Gresham, Tracy Williams, Yoshi-Hashi, PJ Black, Jushin Thunder Liger, TK O’Ryan, Vinny Marseglia, Delirious, Tomohiro Ishii, Colt Cabana (replacing Toru Yano, who entered later as a “just roll with it” #31), Hirooki Goto, Haku, and The Great Muta. It looked like Liger and Muta were the final two wrestlers left in the match, but as they were fighting one-on-one, King, who had hidden outside the ring to avoid elimination at one point, unexpectedly ran in and eliminated both legends.
– The Great Muta misted Kenny King after the Honor Rumble, but the ROH star managed to avoid a Shotei palm strike from Liger.

Love drew on Klein’s forehead with lipstick while Leon took a selfie of the group. Leon, Love, and Sky posed in front of a big screen graphic that identified their new faction as “The Allure” before exiting the arena.
– Nerdcore rapper MegaRan entered the ring to perform the theme song he wrote for this show. His performance was interrupted by Bully Ray. Ray cut a promo on Robinson and then said the open challenge was still on. Flip Gordon, returning from injury, answered the challenge. Shane Taylor and Silas Young, who had not been booked on the G1 Supercard, entered the ring to help Ray. Juice Robinson and Mark Haskins then surprisingly entered the arena with a dumpster full of hardcore match weapons.
