Tag Team Match: East West Express vs. Strange by Kommand (13:40)

Jordan Oliver and Komander started the match with a feeling-out process, during which neither man was able to connect with anything in the early goings of the match. Next up were Wayne and Arez, who followed suit with a similar exchange, showing off their agility. Arez extended his hand, and a reluctant Wayne reciprocated but was caught with a kick to the gut. Arez went to the floor, which served as a distraction as Komander took Wayne out with a crossbody. Oliver teased going for a dive, but Arez cut him off with a series of kicks and a leg lace. The East-West Express then isolated Arez in the ring and hit him with a combination of their tag team maneuvers, swinging the momentum of the match in their favor. Wayne attempted a Northern Lights Suplex, but Arez cut him off and tried to tag Komander, only for Oliver to knock him off the apron. The East-West Express attempted some more tandem offense, but Arez cut them off and made the hot tag to Komander, who got a close nearfall on Oliver. Komander ran wild with a couple of his lucha arm drags and kicks before Nick Wayne got the hot tag for his team and took the fight to Komander. Wayne wasn’t able to capitalize on his offense as Arez broke up a pin attempt with a stiff kick to Wayne’s back. Komander hit a double DDT from Arez’s shoulders, and the two hit East-West Express with stereo dives. They then threw Wayne and Oliver back into the ring, and Komander hit a rope walk Shooting Star Press and a step-up moonsault from Arez for a nearfall. The two teams faced off in the center of the ring and exchanged a series of chops. East West Express took Strange by Kommand off their feet with double big boots, followed by a sit-out hip toss for a nearfall on Arez. Arez caught Wayne with a driver for another nearfall. Arez planted Wayne in the center of the ring, and Komander rope-walked and splashed his own partner, which allowed Oliver and Wayne to hit the Cloutcutter for the victory.
