B Block: Great-O-Khan (0) vs. Chase Owens (0)
Owens tries to blind O-Khan to start. O-Khan overcomes the powder in the eyes and overpowers Chase. Chase hacks away at O-Khan but O-Khan continues to throw high impact offense at Owens like the Tenzan Tombstone. O-Khan nearly gets Owens to tap to the iron claw, but Owens fights out. Owens hits a huge C-Trigger, followed by a Package Piledriver for the win in 11:58.
C Block: KENTA (0) vs. EVIL (0)
This isn’t a wrestling match, it’s two guys trying to out-shenanigan each other. Plenty of brawling, and cheating, with Dick Togo getting involved and helping EVIL hit Magic Killer. KENTA fights back and sends EVIL into an exposed turnbuckle. EVIL survives a series of rollups. KENTA locks EVIL in Game Over but the lights go out. EVIL chokes KENTA with a shirt, a back and forth on the outside leads to Togo holding KENTA’s legs, forcing a countout in 10:13.
Winner: EVIL (2)
A Block: Tom Lawlor (0) vs. Lance Archer (0)
Lawlor wrestles like a snake trying to takedown a much bigger animal. Archer brings as much high strength offense as he can muster, but Lawlor keeps finding ways to slither around Archer’s limbs and lock in a submission. Archer uses his size to his advantage to keep Lawlor from submitting him. Lawlor starts unleashing a flurry of strikes, but trying a rear naked choke on the tall wrestler opens Archer up to prop Lawlor on the top rope, rock him with a strike, and drop him with Blackout for the win in 11:50.
Winner: Lance Archer (2)
D Block: Juice Robinson (2) vs. David Finlay (0)
Finlay outwrestles Juice to start, so Juice has to rely on hair pulls and strikes early. Juice gets cocky and starts attacking Finlay’s previously injured shoulder. Juice strikes and stretches the weak limb, but Finlay escapes to the outside.
Finlay turns the tables on Juice and attacks the left arm of Juice. Juice begs him to stop but Finlay does not relent. Juice sneaks the corner pad off and sends Finlay into the exposed turnbuckle.
