HOOKhausen vs. Mark Sterling & Tony Nese
This one starts out with HOOK and Tony Nese inside the ring and the Premier Athlete tries to pose straight away, which allows HOOK to take him down immediately. Nese gets out of the right straight away, and that allows Danhausen to tag in which Nese finds hilarious. He allows Danhausen to get a free shot in, and he puts on a headlock, but Nese then drops him with a shoulder tackle.
Danhausen then showcases his own skills, avoiding Nese in the corner as he then hits a big boot, and he curses both of his opponents. Nese comes back in though, taking Danhausen down as the Premier Athlete begins singling him out with his aggressive style, beating him down in the corner.
Sterling then tags in and hits a suplex, but he then misses with his attempt at an elbow drop so Nese comes back in. He cuts off the tag by blasting HOOK to the floor, but Danhausen turns it around by taking down his opponent and bringing HOOK in. Nese looks for a tag but there is nobody there, and that allows the Team Taz star to begin throwing Nese around.
Nese tags out, and HOOK throws Sterling into the ring. Nese looks to distract him, but he gets thrown out of the ring as HOOK once again drops Sterling. He cuts the throat of Sterling, but Danhausen wants to be tagged in, he just puts his foot on Sterling and poses to get the win.
Wardlow vs. MJF
MJF’s music hits to kickstart the show, and after a slight pause, he makes his presence known, despite any reports about him from today. He does allude to all the reports from today though by running around in the ring like a plane. The bell rings and Wardlow immediately gets out of the ring to avoid any contact.
MJF then demands that Wardlow backs up, and he ends up sneaking in to get a shot at the back of his former bodyguard, but then Wardlow grabs him, only for MJF to squirm out of the ring again. Wardlow goes after him, and then they switch back as the cat and mouse game continues.
Wardlow grabs MJF by his head, and he finally gets him into the ring and goes for a Powerbomb straight away, but MJF counters by biting his head. Wardlow then screams at him, but MJF just pokes Wardlow in the eye, he counters another Powerbomb attempt into a pinfall, but when Wardlow kicks out, MJF starts playing up a knee injury.
MJF tries to put the ring on but the referee sees it and immediately pulls it off him and then he tries to sweet-talk him, claiming he will triple Wardlow’s pay. Wardlow shakes his hand, but then doesn’t let go as he laughs at him and hits a Powerbomb! The symphony then begins, and Wardlow plays to it by hitting a second Powerbomb.
Things aren’t over though as he hits another three, and puts his foot on MJF for the win…but no. Wardlow pulls his own foot away before the three count, and he hits a sixth Powerbomb. He starts hitting the classic Shawn Spears, ’10’ pose, and he goes on to hit that many Powerbomb’s before getting the victory.
Winner: Wardlow (He is now free of MJF’s contract)

Matt Hardy takes control though and brings in Jeff Hardy, but before they can hit a double-team elbow strike, Matt Jackson strolls away to bring in Nick Jackson. He gets dropped by Jeff with a shoulder tackle who then starts juking, but Nick responds in exactly the same manner. Jeff fights back straight away with some elbow strikes that see Nick head outside as The Hardys hit The Young Bucks pose in the ring.
