SINGLES MATCH: Dexter Lumis vs Tony D'Angelo; We are witnessing a very physical match with Dexter who, as usual, tries to move him on a psychological level. This seems to work as Lumis manages to control a good match wall under the watchful eyes of Indi Hartwell.
After the sequence running clothesline into running bulldog followed by a backdrop into standing leg drop, Dexter tries the pin but does not go beyond the count of 2. The two continue to give them to each other even coming to knock down each other with a double clothesline.
Duke Hudson then decides to distract both the referee and Dexter so as to allow Tony to take his crowbar which is stolen by Indi who in turn is stolen by Persia. Tony then starts a push and pull with Persia who at one point lets go, causing Tony to hit Dexter in the face with the backlash without the referee noticing.
Tony then takes the opportunity to score his swinning neckbreaker.
