Three-Way Match: Robbie Eagles vs. Lochy Hendricks vs. Everett Connors 

Loch applied a headlock, but Everret took him off his feet with a shoulder tackle. Eagles and Everett continued to target Lochy with a double dropkick. They all reset, and Lochy attempted to shake hands with the two men. Instead, he thumbed them in the eye and leveled them with forearms. Connors fired up and sent Lochy to the floor with a head kick, allowing Eagles and Connor to execute a couple of spots before Eagles threw himself outside with a big crossbody.

They all returned to the ring. Connors ducked a clothesline and took Lochy off his feet with a rana. Connors escaped Eagles’ incoming offense and took a moment to pose in the center of the ring. However, Connors was then struck in the back of the head with a forearm and dropped on his back with a big side slam. Lochy used a cutter to drop Robbie right on Everett and went for simultaneous pin attempts but came up short.

They exchanged waist locks, and Eagles dropped both of his opponents with a stiff forearm shot. He kicked Lochy in the ribs and then focused on Connors’ legs. Lochy attempted a chicken wing, but it was blocked, leading to Connors attempting repeated pins on both Eagles and Lochy.

Connors hit a double poisonrana, and Eagles followed with a 450 splash on both Lochy and Connors, who were locked in a submission hold on the mat. Eagles got back up to his feet first, followed by the others, and they all began exchanging chops and strikes in the center of the ring.

Connors hit a Burning Hammer on Lochy, who was able to kick out slightly. Connors then executed a spinning Frog Splash, but the pin attempt was broken up by Eagles, who kicked Connors in the face and secured the victory.

Tag Team Match: The Bastard Brothers (Gore and KrackerJak) vs. Back Pain (Backman and Gymbro Jessie)

Jak and Jessie kicked off the match for their respective teams. Jessie took the offensive stance initially, attempting to dismantle the Australian Wrestling Legend. She succeeded in taking Jak off his feet and even used his back for a set of push-ups. After putting Jak in a toe hold, she added more push-ups to her repertoire. This prompted Jak to call for a push-up competition. Swiftly, Jak sprung up and dropped an elbow on Jessie, following it up with a flurry of chops.

Gore was tagged in and unleashed a barrage of powerful moves against Jessie, showcasing his strength. Backman tagged in, aiming to confront the larger opponent. However, he ended up colliding with the corner post, allowing Jak to staple his face. Gore capitalized on this with a massive back suplex, then tagged Jak back into the fray. Jak attempted to remove the staple from Backman’s head, inadvertently causing him to start bleeding.

Gore returned to the action, renewing his assault on Backman’s back. Smearing the blood across his face, Gore delivered a series of punishing chops and slams. Jessie was tagged back into the match and executed a giant swing on Jak, but her momentum was quickly halted by Gore. As Jessie hoisted Jak onto her shoulders, he countered by utilizing the staple gun, and he sliced her in half with a spear. Meanwhile, Gore executed a powerful powerslam on Backman from the top rope and secured the pinfall victory. This was a fun match, not the best wrestling but it still had it’s moments.

Ugg launched Joey with a forceful Monkey flip, but Joey managed to dodge a charging Ugg and responded with a flurry of stomps in the corner. Joey went beneath the ring and playfully teased the audience by producing a door. However, he decided against using it and instead reentered the ring to attack Ugg. Succumbing to the crowd’s enthusiasm, Ugg fetched a door from underneath the ring and propped it up in the corner. Joey sidestepped a charging Ugg, causing him to collide with the door, although it didn’t break. Joey attempted to set the door up once more, but it stubbornly resisted breaking. Frustrated, Joey lifted the door and slammed it over the champion’s head. Joey then positioned the door in the corner again, but Ugg managed to reverse Joey’s attempt and hurled him into the door, finally shattering it under their combined weight.

Joey responded by hurling the broken door at Ugg’s head and following it up with a Superplex that sent Ugg through the remaining fragments of the door. They traded fists in the center of the ring, with Joey rising to his feet first. Their furious exchange continued, with Joey landing a powerful forearm and a subsequent running knee strike. He attempted the one-winged angel on Ugg, but Ugg’s weight proved too much, sending Joey to the floor with a snap dragon suplex.

Joey retaliated by tossing a chair at Ugg’s head, and then executing a Swanton Bomb from the top rope onto the door positioned over Ugg. However, Ugg displayed resilience by kicking out at two. They found themselves on the apron, where Joey aimed to perform a Death Valley Driver on Ugg, but Ugg countered with an STO slam on the apron. Placing Joey in the corner, Ugg attempted a twisting press, but Joey narrowly evaded, causing Ugg to crash into the corner.

In a display of determination, Joey executed a Death Valley Driver on Ugg, yet Ugg managed to kick out. They resumed their fistfight in the center of the ring, with Ugg gaining the upper hand.

Ugg continued the assault, and as they brawled around the ringside area, Joey sent Ugg headfirst into the ring post.

Returning to the ring, Joey set up a door bridge in the corner. He placed Ugg on a table and climbed the top rope. Just as Joey was about to leap onto Ugg, Ugg rolled off the table and hit Joey with a Splash Mountain powerbomb through the door. Remarkably, Joey managed to get his shoulders up at the last possible moment. Ugg concluded the intense match by executing a Fire Thunder Driver, securing the victory.
