The Brian Kendrick vs Mustafa Ali
They lock up to start the match, then Kendrick takes Ali down, focusing on his arm before Ali flips and hits an arm drag that sends Kendrick across the ring. They lock up again, then Kendrick locks in a straight arm bar before Ali flips more to get out of it, then Kendrick gets out of the ring and to the apron to regroup. Kendrick tries to take Ali down, but he counters, then Kendrick hits Ali repeatedly in the corner once they break with forearms and knees. Kendrick misses a kick and Ali rolls him up for a one count before hitting a huricanrrana that sends him out of the ring, hitting a triangle cross body as we see Drew Gulak watching backstage while on the telephone. Kendrick hides under the ring, then comes back and attacks Ali before rolling him back into the ring for a quick two count. Kendrick tries to lock in the Captain's Hook, but Ali counters and locks in a cobra clutch before Kendrick gets to the ropes.
Ali counters a Captain's Hook with a roll up for a near fall, then drops Kendrick with a wheel kick before dropkicking him, then dropping him repeatedly before hitting a enzuigiri and his signature rolling neckbreaker for a near fall. Kendrick turns Ali inside out with a dropkick for a near fall, then Ali drops him before he goes for an inverted 450 with Kendrick sending him to the mat with The Captain's Hook. The bell goes off prematurely to end the match early, then we see Tozawa rung the bell before Ali drops Kendrick and hits the inverted 450 once more for the pin and the win.
Winner: Mustafa Ali via pinfall
Rich Swann vs Johnny Ocean
Ocean backs Rich into the corner and stomps on him repeatedly until the referee matches him back off, then tosses him into the turnbuckle repeatedly sternum first before locking in a headlock that Swann quickly powers out of. Swann comes back with a series of strikes including right hands, clotheslines and a jumping double foot stomp before finishing with a high angle splash for a quick two count. Swann drops Ocean with a reverse roundhouse kick, then a phoenix splash for the pin and the win.
Winner: Rich Swann via pinfall
-Dar and Alicia come out after the match and Dar confronts Swann before another package is delivered, telling Swann to leave. Dar hands Alicia the box and she opens it and gets powder right in her face, Dar in shock and cringing in horror. Swann laughs a lot on the ramp, then Dar takes the box and puts it on the apron before Alicia wipes it off of her as we go to commercial.
-We come back to Austin Aries being interviewed about being the number one contender for Neville's Cruiserweight Championship, then proceeds to leave, eating a banana.
Jack Gallagher vs TJ Perkins
Jack starts off aggressive, taking TJ down, then TJ reverses with a side headlock before Jack stands on his head to get out of it. Jack ties TJ up with a combination arm and leg submission, then reclines back so TJ's shoulders are on the mat for a quick two count. TJ takes Jack down with a spinning head scissor, then Jack locks in one of his own before TJ gets out of it and gets put right back in it again several times. TJ stands on his head, then hops out of it before Jack dropkicks him out of the ring, going for his umbrella senton, but TJ will have none of it and goes to the ramp. Jack rolls him up for a quick two count once he runs back into the ring, then Jack stands on his head in the corner when he's whipped into it..
Jack hits a mule kick to the chest of TJ, then tries to toss him out of the ring, but TJ hangs in them. Jack tries for a sunset flip, but TJ hits a dragon screw leg whip, then kicks the injured knee before starting to focus on it with stomps.
