Tyson Kidd vs. Tyler Reks
Kidd gets some early offense; Regal says he is a student of the game. Reks gets the upper-hand; Regal says Kidd has been working on a modified Sharpshooter with Bret Hart. Reks works on Kidd's left arm. Kidd speeds things up by spring-boarding off the top rope and flipping to free himself; Reks rolls outside. Kidd follows, then notices he is out-numbered and wisely rolls back in the ring. The ref bans Hawkins—cane in hand—from ringside. As they protest on the outside, Kidd flies through the second rope cross-bodies them both, and rolls to his feet like a cat. He celebrates at ringside.
Back in the ring, Kidd is stomping Reks in the corner. Regal says we missed some good offense from Kidd during the break and that it is a "shame." Reks gets the upper-hand; he lifts Kidd like a vertical suplex, and drops him, stomach first, on the top-rope. Reks gets a couple of near-falls. He keeps dropping knees and kicks to the groin of a laid-out Kidd. Kidd gets back to a vertical base, Reks catches Kidd's foot and Kidd spinning-back kicks him. Kidd, standing on the apron, flips Reks over his shoulder and onto the floor. Kidd hits a running-knee. Reks is back in the ring; Kidd spring-boards off the top-rope and hits a beautiful double-front drop-kick. Reks kicks out. Reks regains offense and delivers an over-the-head spinning fall-away slam; Kidd kicks out. Reks goes on the second turnbuckle; Kidd delivers a double front-dropkick. Kidd goes for the superplex, Reks counters, Kidd kicks him in the head. Kidd jumps on the top-rope; Reks catches him on his shoulders, and drops him on the top turnbuckle. Kidd kicks-out at two. Reks works on the groin some more. Kidd catches his foot, and rolls-through for a sharpshooter. Reks reaches for the ropes; Kidd pulls him to the center of the ring. Reks taps.
Winner: Tyson Kidd (8:18)
Maxine is backstage telling Derrick Bateman she did not freak-out. Bateman says to work on her therapist's breathing exercises. Maxine says she is going to find Striker, and get off the show. She says Bateman can go hang out with Kaitlyn and her two-tone hair. Bateman says try not to beat up any women. Bateman walks, as the camera follows. He tells himself he likes this show; he runs into Kaitlyn. She asks him how it went with Maxine. He says how did the Bay of Pigs go? Bateman says he's a lover and a fighter. He wants to go to Smackdown, become Intercontinental Champion, hold the championship for 100 years; he's not here for the drama. He wants to have what he and Kaitlyn have: chill, cool, no drama, high-fives, chest-bumps, etc. (Sexual tension pause.) They high-five, and repeat: "as a friend." Bateman walks off; Johnny Curtis appears, and teases Kaitlyn with a rendition of, "…sitting in a tree, c-h-e-a-t-i-n-g." Kaitlyn says she likes his toothpick, and then punches him in the stomach, and walks off.
