Laredo Kid & Garza JR vs El Hijo De Phantasma & Naomichi Marufuji
Kid and Hijo start the match off by doing several flips and taking each other down repeatedly until Kid takes control by knocking Hijo down over and over. Garza and Maru tag in, the two exchanging chops until Garza sends Maru out of the ring with a jumping knee. Maru pulls Garza out of the ring before Kid and Hijo both hit topes to the outside. They get back in the ring and Hijo hits a splash off of the top rope for a near fall before Garza tags Kid in, Kid taking out both Hijo and Maru. They then hit a double team move onto Hijo for a near fall before Hijo drops Kid with a running knee.
Maru gets tagged in, Maru and Hijo superkicking Garza when he plays to the crowd before Kid sends Hijo out of the ring. Kid gets a near fall off of a DDT onto Maru before Maru hits a question mark kick for a near fall, finishing with the Sliced Bread for the pin and the win.

Grado & Joseph Park vs Kongo Kong
Kong starts the match off with Grado, knocking him down to start the match before he tags Park in. Kong knocks Park down before they knock Kong over, but Kong is right back up, clotheslining them both before hitting a cannonball in the corner to Park for the pin and the win.
Winner: Kongo Kong via pinfall
-Kong beats on both after the match before Laurel comes out and stops him from killing them before slapping him. Kong then goes to slam her down, but she gets away before Tyrus comes down to the ring. They square off before Kong leaves with Laurel as we go to commercial.
