Cody out after intermission for a promo. He says he has dismantled the Golden Lovers, he beat Kota Ibushi, he beat Kenny Omega, and he has taken his rightful place as the leader of Bullet Club. Mentions he will become NWA World Heavyweight Champion soon, then turns his attention to the ROH World Championship. Cody says at Best in the World, it's going to be bittersweet, because it's not a one-on-one match, but instead it is himself vs Dalton Castle vs "his Bullet Club subordinate" Marty Scurll. Cody runs down Marty for being a follower and a yes man, and says that's why the fans must love him. Marty interrupts, and says that Cody can talk, but he knows that Cody can realize how good Marty is, and there's a little fear in him. Marty says they are friends, but if he had to go throw Cody to get his first ROH World Title, then he'll do it, but for now, he wants a "gentleman's handshake." Cody hesitated but shakes anyways. Marty grabs Cody's hand like he's going to snap his fingers, but instead, just gives him five and laughs as he walks away.

Flip Gordon def Jonathan Gresham
Good match. Gresham did a lot of work on Flip's back with stretch holds and shots to the back. Flip picks up the win after a hard fought match.

Post-match Bully Ray comes out. Flip prepares to fight, but Bully tells him to relax. Bully apologizes for the way he's treated him lately, and says he found out things about Flip recently that he didn't know. First is that Flip is from Montana, which is where Bully's parents wanted to move to when they retired, but they passed away as they were in the process of getting to do so. Bully hands Flip two pictures of his parents. Bully then brings up Flip's military involvement, and discusses his own patriotism. Bully says he doesn't agree with how Flip came up in the business, but he owes him respect. He asks for his pictures back and then salutes Flip. As Flip salutes back, Bully kicks him in the nuts. Bully then reminds Flip who he is and leaves him laying.

Kelly Klein def Deonna Purrazzo

Deonna came dressed in jeans and a t-shirt looking for a fight. She jumped Klein before the bell and they brawled around ringside. Deonna got the Fujiwara Arm Bar on, but Kelly got to the ropes. Deonna went for the arm bar again, but Kelly locked in the End of the Match choke and Deonna tapped almost immediately. Weird finish to an otherwise good match.

Episode 3 main event: So Cal Uncensored def The Kingdom by DQ, The Kingdom retain the ROH World Six-Man Championships

This was a fun match, with the idea being that both teams are cheating heels, so they kept trading dirty tactics throughout the match. At one point, they popped Vinny's balloons on each other in a funny spot. The finish came when Daniels went to hit Taven with knuckledusters, but the ref saw it and took them away, then Taven went to use his staff, but Daniels ducked, and the ref took the staff, then Kaz ran in with a chair, but hit the ropes and knocked himself out. Both teams looked at him confused, and the referee saw the chair and disqualified The Kingdom. SoCal were excited to win, but then realized they lost their title shot, and were upset.

Kenny King def Chuckie T

Another fun match, Kenny was replacing Jay Lethal, who was advertised for this match. Chuck went for a handshake, but Kenny wanted a hug. Chuck said he only hugs one man. Kenny then air-hugged the crowd on each side of the ring. A few spots later, Chuck hugged Kenny, much to his surprise. Kenny knocked Chuck down and went out to the crowd to a guy for a selfie, but the guy was too drunk to get his phone to work, and Kenny gave up on the spot. Kenny got back in the ring and got dropped by Chuck, who went back out to the same guy and took a picture. Chuck did a flip dive and landed upside down with his feet in the crowd, but thumbs upped the camera. Chuck tried for the Awful Waffle, but couldn't hit it. Kenny ends up getting the pin and he shows respect to Chuck after the match.

Shane Taylor def Josh Woods

Taylor cut a promo before the match berating Woods for the incident that happened at the West Palm Beach show. Shane got super loud heat as he tried to cut his promo. They start the match as if it were a shoot fight, and Taylor was wearing fight gloves. Short match, Taylor hits a knockout punch and gets the pin.

Episode 4 main event: Bullet Club (Cody, Young Bucks, Hangman Page, and Marty Scurll) def Los Ingobernables de Japon

Crazy 10-Man match that I really can't translate into words. Dalton Castle was on commentary. Everybody got their usual spots in. Towards the end, Hangman is in the ring when Punishment Martinez comes down. Hangman meets him in the aisle and they brawl to the back. Hiromu uses Daryl Jr to lay out everyone in Bullet Club. BUSHI ends up misting Burnard the Business Bear, and Cody freaks out. The Bucks hit the Meltzer Driver on BUSHI and pick up the win. They stare down EVIL and Sanada ahead of their IWGP Heavyweight Tag Title showdown at Dominion.

After the show, The Bucks and Cody put over the Chicago crowd and thank everyone for the success of All In. They say they only expected to sell 4,000 tickets in the first week, and they didn't believe what happened until the box office manager texted Cody and informed him All In was an official sell out. They thanked everyone and said they'll see us September 1st.
