Match 1.  XXXL VS the Rascalz

Larry D and Dez start off for their teams.  Larry almost ends the match immediately with a powerbomb.  I apologize for starting a few minutes late.  The stream is having issues already.  Acey tags in and Dez continues to take heavy punishment in the corner.    Larry tags back in and Dez needs to make a tag.  Dez finally makes a comeback with a few good punches to the midsection.  Larry then tries to slam him, but Dez Pele kicks him.  Both get to their feet and Dez makes the tag.  Wentz goes straight to Larry and hits a standing moonsault.  Acey comes in and takes a superkick.  Dez comes back in and this backfires.  Wentz gets knocked down, Larry hits a sidewalk slam and gets a two count.  Dez kicks Larry on the top of the head and hits the Final Flash off the top rope for the win.

Match 2.  Brian Myers VS Tommy Dreamer

It will be teacher vs student in this match.  Myers and Dreamer circle each other and Tommy locks on a headlock, but Myers slips out and hip tosses Dreamer.  Myers mocks Dreamer and then he and Dreamer exchange headlock takedowns and leg scissors.  Dreamer seems determined to beat Myers at scientific wrestling.  He is doing very well, so well that Myers becomes frustrated and breaks the scientific exchange with a stiff kick to the back of the neck.  Immediately Myers move set becomes much more violent.  He gets a few pin attempts, but Dreamer kicks out.  Myers stays in control for several minutes.  Myers begins stomping Dreamer as he just lays on the ground taking it.  Myers goes back to the rear chin lock.  Dreamer begins standing out and lays in a few elbows that knock Myers from the ring.  Dreamer basement Dropkicks Myers who was still on the outside.  Dreamer hits the Dusty Elbow.  Dreamer hits a Sky High, D’Lo Brown’s old move.  Dreamer hits a cutter and gets a two count.  Dreamer can’t believe it.

Willie is the surprise opposition for Rohit.  Josh thinks this open challenge will backfire tonight.  Willie hits hurricanrannas and arm drags to start the match.  Rohit bails to the outside.  Rohit hits a leg sweep, but takes a spin kick from Mack off the ropes.  Rohit bails again, but Mack chases him and hits Rohit with a couple palm strikes.  Rohit gets back in the ring and uses the ref’s positioning to gain an advantage.  He is a pretty clever wrestler.  Rohit kicks Mack with several different variations of kicks for a two count.

Rohit locks on a side headlock, that looks much more like a choke.  Rohit then hits a running cutter for a two count.  The champion looks good.  He is talking to himself a lot in the ring, which is funny.  Mack looks out on his feet.  Rohit drags him around the ring in an armbar.  Willie breaks the hold and hits a atomic drop, slam, and leg drop.  Then he hits a Samoan drop and and a standing moonsault for a two count.  This is a really good match.  They are both exhausted.  Mack tries for a Stunner, but Rohit reverses it to an armbar that turns into a crossface.  Mack gets to the ropes, but couldn’t grab them.  Rohit spins him so the ropes are out of reach.  Mack then stands out of the hold.  Rohit hits a running knee and a summersault splash to the corner for a two count.  Rohit climbs the ropes, he misses and Willie hits a pop up elbow for a two count!  Wow.  Good stuff.  The two whip each other around, but eventually knock heads.  Rohit falls out of the ring.  Willie falls in the ring, Rohit fakes injury and gets counted out.

Winner Willie Mack, but still X Division Champion, Rohit

Rohit smiles as we go to an interview in the back.

Kaleb introduces Tenille and takes dozens of pictures of her as they wait for Grace to enter the ring.  Grace tied the series 1 to 1 on Tuesday.  This is the rubber match.  Grace locks on a headlock to start.  Grace takes her over and locks on a head scissors.  It should be noted, Grace married ROH wrestler Johnathan Grisham just a day or so ago.  Back to the match, Grace misses a Vader Bomb, after dominating Dashwood with a series of kicks and splashes to the corner.

Grace hits a neck breaker into the ropes on Dashwood.  Funny spot, one of Grace’s hair extensions fell out, and Kaleb took it.  Grace yelled at him.

Both get to their feet and Grace hits two slams and a spinebuster for a two count.  Josh wonders when we will see the Grace Driver.  Dashwood connects with a double underhook suplex.  She goes for another suplex that fails.  Grace hits a back elbow and throws her into the post.  Grace hits a Vader Bomb, then locks on a sleeper.  The ref was out of position.  Dashwood gets up and hits her finisher.  It looks like a disaster kick for the win.

Winner.. Tenille Dashwood.

Moose talks to the camera and tells EC3, Trey is going to get hurt because of him.  He should start a Go Fund Me for him.  For the next several minutes Moose just punishes Trey, while yelling at EC3.

Madison is even wondering if the match should be stopped.  Moose is just destroying Miguel.  Trey keeps getting up, only to be crushed again.  Moose hits a wicked Rock Bottom.  He picks up Trey, but suddenly Trey spins out and hits a Superkick and a basement dropkick.  He then hits a Shinning Wizard.  He launches himself three times on Moose on the outside.  On the 3rd time Moose caught him and he just flings Trey to the barricade.  Just then EC3’s logo is shown on the tron.  Trey then rolls up Moose for the win, while he is confused.
