** In John Morrison’s first TV match since his debut, he and QT Marshall won against Hardy and Brother Zay.

** The main event was a quick match with Shida defeating Taya Valkyrie. Shida began the match with an early advantage, landing a knee strike and setting up a chair outside the ring. However, Shida was unable to use the chair due to Valkyrie’s evasion. After a brief pursuit, Valkyrie targeted Shida’s knee, attempting to capitalize on her injury. Despite this, Shida countered with a running elbow and evaded a Road to Valhalla attempt, rolling up Taya to secure victory.

Wow! An injured Shida just pulled a win over Taya Valkyrie out of nowhere!
