X-Division Championship Match: Mike Bailey (c) vs. Deaner
Deaner takes control at the opening bell. Speedball finds his footing rather quickly but Deaner is quick with his counters. After the break, Bailey unloads with numerous kicks to take Deaner down for a twisting shooting star press, two. Bailey continues to beat Deaner down enough to hit Ultima Weapon and land the three-count to retain.
Winner: Mike Bailey retains

Neck breaker to Mike, cover. Maria tries to interfere, but she accidentally distracts the ref long enough for Heath to attack Taven in the ing. Ace scores the pinfall win over Bennett.
Winners: Ace Austin & Chris Bey

#1 Contender’s Match: Chris Sabin vs. Alex Shelley
Shelley targets the left leg of Sabin throughout the bout. Sabin fights his way back to the point of the crowd chanting “this is awesome.” Shelley drops Sabin on his face with a back suplex. Shelley gets in a lock, but Sabin reaches the ropes. In trading quick moves, Shelley hits Shell Shock and then traps Sabin in a cross face. Sabin taps out.
