MLW Middleweight Championship: Lio Rush (c) vs. Brian Pillman Jr.

The bell rings. You can see Brian Pillman Jr. strategizing over in the corner. Both men go for a collar and elbow tie-up. Pillman backs Rush up against the ropes and breaks the hold cleanly. They reset. Pillman takes Rush down on one knee with a side headlock. Rush counters with a head scissors. On their feet now, Pillman slaps the champion across the face before crushing him with a shoulder tackle. Pillman continues with a dropkick for two. Rush answers Pillman with a slap of his own.

Rush tightly wraps himself around Pillman. Pillman tries to throw a few back elbows, but it's not working in his favor. Rush breaks it up with a series of heavy kicks.

Pillman stops Rush by clocking him with a palm strike for two. Pillman blocks Rush while on the apron with a punch. Rush knocks Pillman off the apron with a handstand. Rush counters Pillman with another big kick to the back of the skull. Rush heads to the top. Pillman meets him up there with an uppercut that turns into a huge superplex!

- Following the brawl that took place earlier, Alicia Atout reports that CONTRA Unit will be added to tonight's Tag Team Championship main event.

Backstage: Alex Hammerstone has some animosity against Mil Muertes after attacking him last week following his National Openweight Championship against LA Park. Hammerstone wants Muetres to return his title. "The Nightmare Pendulum" challenges Muetres to a future match!

In Kauai: The Von Erichs are nowhere near done with Team Filthy. They want them to pick a time and a place for them to fight at.

- Rich Bocchini mentions how MLW is looking into Azteca Underground more and what it's about. One of Azteca Underground partners, Salina de la Renta, comes on and warns Hammerstone and everyone in the MLW lockerroom that "El Jefe" wants the violence. In order to grant his wishes, more people are going to be broken and sacrificed.

Mil Muertes (w/Salina de la Renta) vs. Parrow

These two powerhouses get right in each other's faces right before the bell rings. Parrow lays down a flurry of forearms on Mil Muertes. Muertes flies off the ropes and goes for a low basement dropkick, followed by a bulky DDT to take Parrow off his feet. Muertes then climbs on top of Parrow and rains down punch after punch. Muertes bounces Parrow's face on the apron. Next, he digs his fingers into Parrow's eyes to blind him from attempting any sudden attacks. Muertes rolls Parrow into the ring. Parrow finds his offense again with a big boot and then a powerful senton for just a two count! Muertes knocks the wind out of Parrow's sails with a massive powerslam at two. Muertes continues the onslaught with his Straight To Hell finisher. Muertes has broken Parrow's undefeated streak with the pinfall victory.
