Match 4. Impact World Champion, Josh Alexander and Rich Swann VS Impact World Tag Team Champions, Mike Bennett and Matt Taven (Honor No More, with Maria Kanellis)
This tag team title match should be interesting. Bennett is hip tossed twice by Josh and then Swann tags in for a tandem back breaker/legdrop. Taven tags in and he gains control over Swann. Taven works over Swann for a few mins and tags in Mike. Bennett drops an elbow on the exposed leg Taven was working on. After a few tags in the corner, Josh loses his cool and goes for a save. It only proved to hurt Swann when HNM double teamed him as the ref removed Josh.
After Swann finally tags out Josh goes on a suplex binge on Bennett. Josh eventually crossbodies Mike to the floor and backdrops Taven on Bennett. Swann moonsaults the tag champs from the top rope to the floor. After they double team Mike in the ring, they get a two count. Taven tags in and saves Mike from the ankle lock. Taven hits a disaster kick. Taven hits the just the tip knee strike for a two count. Josh regains control, but Eddie Edwards runs out to cause a distraction. Eddie cracks Josh with a kendo stick. Heath enters to take out Taven, but the ref only sees Heath interfering. The champs retain by DQ.

Match 6. Main Event. The Good Brothers (Bullet Club) VS The Motor City Machine Guns
This is billed as a first time ever dream match. It should be noted, Karl Anderson is the current Never Weight Champion in NJPW. Alex Shelley and Anderson can’t gain any advantage on each other so they tag in Chris Sabin and Doc Gallows. Gallows gets a quick power move set in, but the Guns make a few quick tags and they take control. Once the match slows down and Shelley is left with Doc, Shelley eats a big boot and Anderson tags in. TGB’s make several tags and work over Shelley hard. Interesting, Gallows is in the ring a lot. Typically Anderson carries the load in the ring. TGBs have been in control for several minutes, when Shelley makes the tag. Sabin crossbodies both and then takes turns kicking both his foes. Shelley joins him and they dive to both the GBs on the floor. We go to break. Once back, Shelley dragon screws Anderson. Sabin interferes snapping the other leg on the outside. Anderson’s legs are now the story of the match. Shelley locks on the figure four. The Machine Guns then work in tandem, stretching the 5 count with each tag. They continue to work both legs. Anderson musters up enough strength to sidewalk slam Shelley and make the tag. Gallows works over both of the Machine Guns with clotheslines, splashes and boots. After a pumphandle slam on Sabin, they set up a magic killer. Sabin gets free and Shelley tries to help. Gallows double suplexes them both. They match goes to the floor and Sabin dives on both Good Brothers. Anderson eats dropkick/Russian leg sweep. Anderson then recovers and hits a gun stun on Sabin. Gallows hits a belly to back for a two count. The Machine Guns hit the classic speed move set on Gallows, leaving Anderson prone. After their double team top rope finisher, skull and bones, the MCMGs get the pin.
