Match 1.  Mike Bailey VS Samuray Del Sol

This is a friendly battle between two fan favorites.  The match starts with a lucha feel, arm drags, and dragon leg sweeps.  The two had a bad cross in the ropes and they both were angry from the exchange.  Del Sol refused a hand shake after.  Bailey is taken out to the floor and Sol moonsaults on him.  Back in the ring, Sol gets a two count.  Bailey recovers and delivers the machine gun kicks to the solar plexus.  The two then have a series of high spots with both ending up on the floor.  Del Sol and Bailey end up kicking each other at the same time.  Both get to their feet and reset the 10 count.  They end up kicking each other on the apron.  Del Sol wins the kicks exchange, but gets caught on the top rope, where he is kicked to the floor.  Bailey then moonsaults from the top to the floor on Del Sol.  Bailey gets caught trying a ultimate weapon.  Del Sol reverses a ranna into a driver off the top for a two count.  Bailey gets a two after a backslide.  Bailey eats a pump kick, but delivers one of his own in return.  Ultimate weapon and it is over.

Winner by pinfall, Mike Bailey

Match 2.  Kenny King (with Sheldon Jean) VS Heath

This feud has been building for weeks.  Heath interfered on the behalf of Tommy Dreamer, when he won the Digital Media Championship, over King.  This starts off as a brawl with the two going at it on the floor.   King gets the worse of it and Heath takes out Jean just for trying to talk smack.  As Heath has his back turned, King manages to land a strike, but Heath stays on the advantage and suplexes him from the apron to the ring.  They immediately brawl back to the floor and Heath rolls his ankle on the fall.  He can’t get to his feet.  Jean starts trying to revive King.  They both beat the count back in the ring, but King goes right back on the attack on his new target.  King is vicious in his attack and grinds and twists on the ankle, along with a few stomps.  Heath fights back, but can’t stand, but King can’t put him away yet.  The two eventually collide off the ropes, basically Heath stood up, bounced and fell on King.  Heath somehow knees King and powerslams him next.  Heath hits a spinebuster and is gaining momentum, but can’t finish King.  Jean interferes, King connects with a tornado kick and royal flush and it is over.

Winner by pinfall, Kenny King

We get a backstage promo from last week with Frankie Kazarian,  fresh off his win over Eddie Edwards.  He asks Eddie for respect and tells him he loves him.  He says they will be better now and must join forces.

Match 3.  NO DQ.  Black Taurus VS Crazzy Steve

Steve tries to run from Taurus, but he can’t get away.  Taurus drops Steve with a chin breaker.  He then grabs a chair.  Steve dodges it and uses dropped chair on Taurus.  They are on the floor.  Steve goes on the hunt for more weapons.  He gets more chairs, which he uses repeatedly.  He sets a several up facing each other, before leg sweeping Taurus into the apron.  He then smashes his head with a garbage can.  Taurus blocks a suplex and throws Steve on a stack of chairs.  He then lariats him twice.  Steve trips Taurus on a can.  Steve then plants Taurus with a head scissor takedown.  Taurus kicks out at a long two.  Steve loves he kicked out sadistically.  Steve then backdrops Taurus on the piled chairs from the ring to the floor.  Taurus took a really bad fall.  Steve pulls out another fork.  Taurus blocks the stabbing.  The two struggle for the fork.  Steve pleads for forgiveness, but it is all for show.  He hits the belladonna’s kiss.  It is over.
