Oliver Carter (w/ Ashton Smith) vs Kenny Williams

The two then exchange pin falls before Oliver drops Kenny with a kick and Kenny escapes to the ropes as the round comes to a close.
Round two start with Kenny kicking Oliver in the midsection and stomping his head before focusing on his back by clubbing it and tying his hair up in the ropes and hitting a running dropkick for two before Oliver comes back with a roundhouse kick for two before Kenny gets the first fall off of a sunset flip to end the round.
1-0 Kenny Williams
Kenny immediately rolls out of the ring and mocks Oliver before Oliver chases him in and out of the ring until Oliver tricks Kenny and drops him with a flipping kick into a slingshot cross body and tossing Kenny back inside before Oliver hits a Superman forearm into a clothesline for the pin and the second fall.
Oliver hits an asai moonsault for a near fall before missing an ax kick and Kenny gets two off of a Gedo clutch before Kenny spears Oliver's knee and Oliver gets two off of a small package before superkicking Kenny and sending him through the ropes and down onto the floor before rolling out after Kenny who kicks him in the knee at ringside. Kenny then gets back inside with a metal water bottle before ripping off the top turnbuckle and distracting the referee before hitting Oliver with the bottle and knocking him out for the pin, third fall, and the win.
