Kenny King vs. Karl Anderson
King and Anderson start slow and methodical, picking each other apart with boots to the gut and uppercuts. King wraps Anderson’s arm up while on the mat. Karl fights his way up and the two trade blows. King targets the left leg but it isn’t enough to prevent Karl from hitting a rocket kick for a nearfall. Anderson reaches the bottom rope to break a leg lock. Karl nails the Gun Stun to secure the victory.
Winner: Karl Anderson
King grabs a chair and takes out Karl’s leg for good measure ahead of Friday’s 10-man tag match. King goes to do more damage but Heath sneaks in from behind and hits Wake Up Call to make the save.

Deaner vs. Kushida
Kushida wastes no time in targeting Deaner’s left arm before shifting to a headlock. Doering and Chris Sabin watch closely as Deaner picks apart Kushida outside the ring. After the break, Deaner lands a neckbreaker and pinfall attempt. Deaner goes up top but is stopped by a kick to the chest. Kushida grabs Deaner’s arm for the Hoverboard lock. Sabin levels Doering outside, which allows Deaner to headbutt Kushida off. Kushida regains himself and floats Deaner over into a cover for the three.

Mia runs in circles around Rayne before dropkicking the knee. Rayne takes control with another headlock and knees to the gut. Yim wraps Rayne up with the Tarantula. Rayne dodges a missile dropkick and hits a Northern Lights Supelx for a nearfall. Rayne lands a big Crucifix Bomb for another two-count.

They start off quick with quick pin attempts before standing back up for a stare down. They flip around, Romero hits a couple arm drags and then gets in a two-count after stereo dropkicks. We come back from break to see Bailey kick the ring post, which allows Romero to hit a head-scissors takedown. Back in the ring, Bailey comes back with a standing moonsault and cover. Romero takes hold of the left arm but Bailey rolls through and back up. Bailey moonsaults out of the ring. Romero isn’t able to hit Sliced Bread but does cover Bailey anyway.
