The matches saw Tye Dillinger defeat Eric Young by DQ, Andrade “Cien” Almas defeat No Way Jose, Roderick Strong defeat Elias Samson and Bobby Roode defeat Oney Lorcan.
Dillinger, Almas, Strong and Roode then competed in a four-way limination match where the winner becomes the new #1 contender. Roode was victorious, eliminating Dillinger last, earning Roode a shot at Joe’s NXT Title.
