The Quarterfinals have 30 minute time limits, extended from the previous 20 minute.

* Tony Nese & Drew Gulak defeated Lince Dorado & Kenneth Johnson when Nese pinned Johnson with a 450 splash.

* The Bollywood Boyz defeated Sean Maluta & Ariya Daivari after Maluta was pinned following a top rope elbow.
* Kota Ibushi pinned Brian Kendrick with the sit-out powerbomb. The match had to be restarted after Ibushi was counted out as William Regal came out to restart the bout.
After the match. Bryan Danielson came out and hugged Kendrick. The crowd chanted “Please don’t go” and “Please sign Brian.”
