Rich Swann vs. Jason Lee
The ring announcer reminds us of the 20-minute time limit. Lee makes his entrance, nun-chucks in tow and wows the crowd. Rich Swann with the huge pop as he dances his way to the ring. Lee does not seem extremely entertained. The theme song continues as the bell rings and turns into "All Night Long." They trade holds and have a standoff. Lee swings and misses and Swann nails a drop kick for a one count. Lee with some Bruce Lee-like chops and strikes to take advantage. Swann didn't take lightly to a slap and hits Lee with several clubbing fists. Swann lands an acrobatic jumping hurricanrana. More back and forth action mounting to a roundhouse kick from Swann. Swann with a very impressive standing 450 splash for the three and the win.
Winner via Pinfall: Rich Swann
We go straight into the next match.

Fabian Aichner vs. Jack Gallagher
Gallagher with quite the unique look and presence that will easily get over at Full Sail. The Italian strongman Aichner makes his way to the ring with a distinct power advantage as compared to Gallagher's technical prowess. A gentlemanly handshake and we are off. Aichner with fantastic maneuverability as he counters early submissions. He finishes the sequence off with a handstand and turns Gallagher inside out. Not to be outdone, Gallagher slinks into control as the crowd appreciates the showmanship. What a fun exchange. No more fun and games from Aichner as he hits a kick to the midsection and follows it up with some big shoulder tackles. Gallagher reverses again but not for long. Aichner gets a piece of a springboard drop kick, but slipped slightly on the jump. Charles Robinson gets a workout with several back-to-back covers from both men. Big tilt-a-whirl back breaker from Aichner to create some space. Aichner surprisingly hits a fantastic double springboard moonsault for a two! Gallagher slips out of a suplex and hits two drop kicks and Aichner is still on his feet. A crossbody takes the bigger man down. Gallagher locks in a guillotine but Aichner able to flip him over into a sit-out powerbomb for a two! Aichner beside himself and turns to the ground game to keep the gentleman down. Aichner goes for a frog splash but nobody home. Gallagher goes for a headbutt and sets Aichner up in the corner for a heavy footed drop kick in the corner that makes Daniel Bryan jealous. One, two, and three. Gallagher wins! What a fun match.
Winner via Pinfall: Jack Gallagher
Tomasso Ciampa vs. Johnny Gargano
To make this one feel a bit more special, we head backstage for an interview with both men. Good reactions for both men. Big fight feel for this one. Hesitant but friendly handshake to get us started. Gargano staying on top of Ciampa early with a good deal of technical maneuvers and deep arm drags. Ciampa evens the odds with one clean and stiff back elbow. Yikes. A second elbow sends Gargano outside. Ciampa joins him and delivers a resounding chop. Ciampa sets up Gargano on the apron and hits a big running knee. He returns inside for the cover for a two. Are we in Japan? These strikes are landing flush. Ciampa gets hung up in the corner and Gargano lands a kick to the head. Gargano with a jumping DDT for a two. Ciampa climbs the ropes with Gargano but Johnny Wrestling slips out and misses a sunset flip. No worries for Gargano as he hits a kick to the head of Ciampa whose head is stuck in the ropes and follows it up with a power bomb. Suicide dive from Gargano that lands clean. They re-enter the ring but Ciampa nails Gargano with a knee as he dives through the second rope. Ciampa goes for a slam but Gargano denies it. Strikes from Ciampa but Gargano slips out and hits kick.

More stiff strikes and a series of pins. Gargano rolls Ciampa up with the Crucifix cover for the three and victory. What a match!
Winner via Pinfall: Johnny Gargano
Gargano goes for a handshake, but Ciampa refuses and heads out of the ring. Having second thoughts, Ciampa heads back in the ring and takes a seat beside his tag team partner and gives him a hug. Nice little way to end a great match.
