Michael Elgin vs Rhino
They try to knock each other over until Rhino drops Michael with a clothesline and Elgin rolls out of the ring, taking his time to catch his breath before getting back into the ring. Michael rocks Rhino with forearms and Rhino hits a shoulder tackle in the corner before Michael rolls out of the ring when he teases a Gore. Rhino brings Michael back into the ring and Michael comes back with a dropkick before whipping Rhino into the corner for a two count before hitting a scoop slam into an elbow drop for another two count. Rhino and Michael run into each other and fall to the mat before Michael catches Rhino coming in and hits a uranage before missing a corkscrew senton. Rhino drops Michael with back elbows before hitting a spinebuster for a near fall and Michael hits several running splashes in the corner before they counter suplexes attempts until Michael hits a suplex and Rhino a piledriver for a near fall. Rhino hits a superplex for a near fall before Michael hits with him a lariat and before they end up out of the ring and counted out.
Winner: No contest due to double count out.
-They brawl after the match until they're separated as we go to commercial.
IMPACT Tag Team Title Match
The North (c) vs Reno Scum
Ethan and Luster start things off, Luster dropping Ethan before hitting a headbutt to the groin and a scoop slam into a diving punch. RS double team Ethan briefly before he gets dropkicked out of the ring and Josh comes in, Josh swinging Frank around before locking in a headlock and hitting an assisted draping DDT for a two count as we go to commercial.
We return to the action to Josh in control of Frank, beating on him and man handling him around the ring before Ethan hits a spinning backbreaker and drives his shoulder into his midsection repeatedly in the corner. Frank fights off The North and finally tags in Luster as Josh gets the tag in the opposite side before rocking Josh with punches and hitting several running clotheslines and a cutter. Luster hits a spinebuster for a near fall after Josh argues with the referee over trying to get a pin with his feet on the ropes before Reno get a near fall that Ethan breaks up by putting Josh's foot on the bottom rope from ringside. Frank then hits a DVD before Ethan catches him up top and The North hit their finisher for the pin and the win.
Winner: The North defeat Reno Scum via pinfall to retain their IMPACT Tag Team titles.
