Six-Man Scramble: Eli Everfly vs. Rob Shit vs. Cameron Gates vs. Keita Murray vs. Gregory Sharpe vs. Ju Dizz
This was your typical scramble match with each man pairing off at certain points and which allowed them to get their moment to shine in the ring before the next duo was up. All the competitors were sent to the floor except for Gates and Everfly, two training partners at Santino Bros wrestling school; they briefly faced off before they launched themselves to the floor. Shit and Keita were next up in the ring where Shit landed a series of thrust kicks which sent Keita to the floor, Ju Dizz was able to land a beautiful dropkick which sent shit to the floor. Gregory Sharpe jumped the gloating Dizz and beat him down in the corner. Everfly returned to the ring and was able to beat up Sharpe for a little while before both of them were sent to the floor.

Singles Match: Damian Drake vs. Midas Kreed
The match started with a feeling-out process from both competitors, which saw Kreed locking in an arm wringer but Drake was able to escape with a headlock takeover. Kreed sent Drake to the floor and attempted to hit a tope but was cut off mid-action and slammed on the apron by Damian. It was a pretty back and forth matchup with neither man really able to get any serious momentum which made for a little bit of a slower but still decent match. Drake locked in the torture rack and hit a blue thunder bomb for a two count, Kreed hit a step in cutter followed by a running swinging neck breaker but it still wasn’t enough to put Drake away; they kept kicking out of various finishers until Midas Kreed connected with a tope followed by a reverse DDT for the victory.

Back in the ring Tito hit an Eddie Guerrero-esqe senton and registered the first near fall of the matchup. Gaston sent Bad Dude Tito to the floor with a clothesline and hit a beautiful Sasuke Special followed by a perfect moonsault taking out Tito. The match kind of fell apart for a moment after that spot as Gaston was searching under the ring for something, pretending to be knocked out or something, then he was powerbombed on the ring apron. Back in the ring, Bad Dude Tito once again locked in the ankle lock but Gaston powered out of it and connected with a DDT. Gaston’s advantage didn’t last long as he was once again caught with the ankle lock, suplex on his head, and hit with a huge frog splash securing the victory for Bad Dude Tito.

Cholo made the hot tag and B-Boy ran wild on the PPRay, B-Boy locked in a head-and-arm choke on Peter Avalon and used Peter’s body to taunt Ray. Ray was tagged back into the match and took the fight to the veteran B-Boy, connecting with stiff strikes and kicks in the corner.

Cholo received the hot tag and ran wild, he attempted a double pin on PPRay but they kicked out at 2, B-Boy was beating up Ray behind the ref’s back and Cholo connected with a strike to the face which dropped Ray.
