Tashia Steelz with Savannah Evans is interviewed backstage about her title match tonight.  She questions why Mickie doesn’t want Chelsea Green to second her to the ring.  She says it doesn’t matter, because he is going to send Mickie back to her husband and son as a loser.

Match 2.  Eddie Edwards (with Honor No More) VS Rhino (with Team Impact)

Rhino wants to tear the trader apart.  He attacks Eddie right from the onset.  Eddie spills  to the outside in retreat.  He re-enters, but Rhino stays on the attack.  Eddie does connect with a few chops, but Rhino simply fights it off and lays in some of his own before tossing Eddie to his teammates on the outside.  Swann launches him back in the ring.  Maria hands Eddie a kendo stick.  The ref notices and boots her from ringside.  Eddie uses that time to gain advantage.  He drapes Rhino over the ropes and his teammates work Rhino over.  Eddie locks on a rear chin lock.  He then hits a splash in the corner.  He tries for another and Rhino hits a shoulder tackle and back elbow.  Sabin and Kenny King start going at it on the outside.  Now all the outside teams are going at it on the floor.  Swann launches himself from the ring onto everyone.  Mack decides to do the same and hits a Swanton to the floor.  The fans are loving it.  Maclin enters and DDT’s Eddie.  Maclin then grabs the kendo stick and hits Rhino in the back, betraying his team.  He exits with the fans telling him off profanly.  Eddie leg lariats Rhino and gets the pin.

Winner by pinfall.  Eddie Edwards.

Match 3.  Knockouts Tag Champions, The Influence VS The Inspiration (with Kaleb with a K)

Kaleb will need to back his team with no interruptions if they are to win the Knockouts Tag Team Championship.  In fact, Madison and Tenille tell Kaleb his services will not be needed at ringside.

This should be an interesting match now that Kaleb has been told to stay in the back.  Jessie drops Tenille with a shoulder block.  She then hits a suplex.  Cassie tags in and they double team Madison, who just tagged in as well.  Madison and Cassie start a series of roll ups and arm drags.  Cassie ends up getting the advantage finally.  She drags Madison to their corner.  Tenille jumps the ring without tagging in and they try to take out the champs, but the champs toss them from the ring.

Out of nowhere, Cassie gets tossed from the ring by Madison.  Madison gets a two count off a rollup on Jessie.  She then uses the ropes to boot her in the ring.  Tenille puts Jessie in the tree of woe.  They work over her in their corner.  Tenille gets a two count after Jessie crumbles to the floor.  Cassie finally gets back to the apron and gets tagged in.  She takes out Tenille in the corner and lays out Madison with a huge kick to the head.  Cassie then kicks Tenille and gets a two count.  Jessie tags back in and Tenille gets kneed in the face for a two count.  Madison is nowhere to be found, but Tenille does a great job of handling herself.  Just then Kaleb enters ringside.  Jessie gets a two count off a spin kick.  He throws Tenille the tag belts and she lays out Cassie with it.  It isn’t totally obvious who he was trying to throw the belt too, but Dashwood took advantage and we have new champions.

Winner.  The Inspiration are new Tag Team Champions of the Knockouts Division.

Heath gets some inspiration for his match from He then tells Moose he is ready.

Match 4.  Jonah VS PCO

This should be ugly.  Jonah and PCO tear into each other.  Jonah works him to the corner, but misses a whip and splash attempt.  PCO hits a DDT.  He then dropkicks Jonah in the back.  The match spills to the floor.  Neither back up an inch and eventually make their way to the ramp.  Jonah hits a Russian leg sweep on the ramp.  They get back in the ring and Jonah chops PCO about 10 times, it seems to have no effect on PCO.  He then starts chopping Jonah repeatedly.  The match spills to the floor and PCO hits a summersault to the floor.  They re-enter and Jonah is placed on the apron.  PCO then launches himself crushing Jonah from the top rope with a senton.  PCO looks like he hurt himself as bad as Jonah.  The guy is unstoppable.  Jonah recovers and they end up on the top rope.  Jonah hits a massive suplex that shakes the foundation of the ring.  PCO gets to his feet and and suplexes Jonah.  Jonah no sells it and clotheslines PCO.  PCO gets back to his feat, but eats a suplex and DDT.  He sits up again and Jonah kicks him in the face.  Jonah goes to the top and PCO chases him down first.  They are on the top rope and PCO hits a ranna off the top.  UNREAL.  PCO has been a wrestler for 35 years.  He heads back to the top and hits a moonsault for a two count.  This is awesome chants are heard.   Jonah rolls from the ring.  PCO chases him, but Jonah steps to the side and slams PCO into the steel steps.  He then piledrives him on the stairs.  That was ugly.  Jonah sets him up again on the stairs and powerbombs PCO to the floor. He tosses PCO in the ring and hits the Tsunami and gets the pin.  Incredible.

Winner.  Jonah

PCO refuses any help to the back.
