DeAngelo Williams and Moose (with Gary Barnidge) vs. Chris Adonis and Eli Drake
Starting off is Adonis and Moose. Flores just called Adonis, “Chris Masters” a few times now. Drake and Williams face off, headlock by Drake, Williams escapes and gets put down almost instantly. Williams flips away by Drake, pinning combination, 2-count, right into an arm drag, and tags back Moose in. Williams with a running cannonball into the corner on Drake. Nice showing thus far for Williams. Adonis gets Moose down, Drake goes for a high flying move, but ends up slipping off the ropes. That’s two people tonight who have fallen. Moose tries to get back into this one as Adonis chops away at his chest.
Williams wants in as Moose is struggling, in comes Williams with a big shoulder tackle, chop, and a Samoan drop. Standing moonsault by Williams! What?! Moose gets back in to the match, running senton by Moose, by Williams, and then by both guys! Williams dumps both guys out of the ring and Moose with a corkscrew off the second rope. Williams and Moose bring out a table. Drake and Adonis get some control again as they go to work on Moose in the ring. They set up the table in the ring with Moose down and Williams on the outside. Moose lays out Adonis and puts him on the table. Frog splash by Williams, who overshoots it a bit, doesn’t break the table. He goes for the pin though and gets the win for his team.
Winners: Moose and DeAngelo Williams via Pinfall
– Post-match Williams and Moose weren’t happy with the win (or just really needed to put someone through a table) and attacked Drake and Adonis. They brought Drake back, and Moose powerbombed him though the table.
– Backstage with ECIII, he says Storm has been a foundation for Impact and that is why ECIII has targeted him. He says he will win.
Ethan Carter III vs. James Storm (Strap Match)
One strap is tied to both wrestlers’ wrist and Storm starts punching away almost immediately. Storms has whacked ECIII a good eight or ten times with that strap already. Action spills to the outside, Storm picks up and dumps ECIII on the apron with (dare I say) impact! ECIII gets back in the ring and ends up choking Storm along the bottom rope. You can see the welts already all over ECIII’s body. Action back in the ring, Storm is being simply choked out, but he tries to work his way back to his feet. ECIII now gets in a few whacks of his own. Storm doesn’t seem to be bothered, which confusing his opponent mightily. Cutter by Storm, he goes up top and gets yanked right off to the middle of the ring. ECIII goes to the outside, gets some handcuffs, and puts the key around his neck.
Storm is able to trick his way out of getting handcuffed and instead locks his opponent in the corner. He hits ECIII 32 times with that strap, his back is all beat up now. The ref is nice enough to unlock ECIII after getting completely destroyed. One percenter by Storm, but only a two-count. ECIII manages to get out of the strap and yanks Storm face first into the ring post. ECIII then puts it back on and hits his finisher, but Storm kicks out at 2.5! The announcers are blown away he was able to kick out of that. Massive slap and superkick by Storm, but he just suddenly falls down to the mat. Announcers say it’s from when he was pulled hard into the ring post. The ref is talking to ECIII and apparently was telling him to just pin the guy. ECIII shoves the ref and gets in one last move before winning the match. Kind of abrupt and wierd, but medical staff come in to tend to Storm.
Winner: Ethan Carter III via Pinfall
– Backstage, Karen Jarrett and Dutch Mantel talk.
– Back to the ring, Storm is able to be helped out of the ring. He’s still sitting on the steps as Pope heads out to the announce table.

Mathews and Park start off, Mathews uses some speed to move around Park. He goes for a big running splash and bounces off Park, crowd laughs at him. Park with some big shoulder tackles that flatten Mathews. In comes Borash and out goes Mathews! Borash doesn’t looked so thrilled to face Steiner and quickly tags out. Steiner with some punches, elbow drop, and Park goes to the outside. Mathews went to the top rope and jumped to the floor taking a hard bump on Park’s shoulder. Steiner tears a piece of barricade away and throws it at the retreating Borash and Park.
We are now backstage (which is pre-recorded footage) as Borash says “I’m out of here, f this!” Steiner yells for Mathews to get in the golf cart and they chase after the other team. Borash and Park sprayed them with fire extinguishers. The duo then hijacks a guy and Steiner keeps yelling “fat a–es.” Mathews chases after Borash to a pool and ends up back body dropping Mathews into the pool. Then Borash does a front flip into the pool! The two are fighting underwater now. We go to Steiner who is just hammering away at Park until he throws him into a container. While in the pool, Shark Boy appears! Borash and Mathews run away from the pool. Back to a recovering Park who sees his old manager, James Mitchell, who has an Abyss mask in hand.
Action comes back to the ring as Mathews and Steiner look to have control of Borash. Out comes Shark Boy who provides a short distraction before Steiner suplexes him a few times. Out comes James Mitchell to Abyss’ music, already in the ring is Abyss who lays out both Josh and Scott. Abyss gets a bag of tacks and Mathews tries to push Abyss into them. Black hole slam, Mathews right on the tacks. Borash goes to the top rope and does rough frog splash on Mathews and also gets a handful of tacks in his hands, ouch. Abyss gets the pin.
