Jack Gallagher vs Tony Nese
They start with a test of strength before Tony whips Jack into the corner and he stands on his head before Jack gets a quick one count before Tony Iocks in a headlock. Jack gets out, but is hit with a lariat that turns him inside out from behind for a quick two count. Nese ties Jack in the tree of woe before hitting him with a series of knees, then hits a delayed suplex, but Jack reverses with a series of knees into a dropkick and a fisherman's suplex for a near fall. They clash heads before Nese is sent shoulder first into the ring post when Jack gets out of the way, then Nese hits a school boy into the turnbuckle and hits a running knee in the corner for the pin and the win.
Winner: Tony Nese via pinfall
-We see Noam talking to Alicia on the phone backstage before Cedric comes up and Noam tells him that they think he should leave 205 Live before Cedric leaves. We then find out that Noam put Ariya's bag in the river and not Cedric's as we go to commercial.
-We come back to a video package for Mustafa Ali and his heated rivalry with Drew Gulak before their match.
Mustafa Ali vs Drew Gulak
Ali is in control as the match starts until Drew pushes him off of the top rope and to the floor before rolling him back into the ring after hitting him with a forearm. Drew start a focusing on the shoulder of Ali, stomping on it before putting him in an abdominal stretch and a fall away slam for a quick two count. Drew hits another slam for a quick two count, then puts Ali in a modified straight jacket before Ali comes back with a series of clotheslines and a dropkick. Ali hits running double knees into an enzuigiri and a rolling neckbreaker before Drew catches him coming off of the top rope and goes for a Boston crab, but Ali rolls him up for the pin and the win.
Winner: Mustafa Ali via pinfall
-We see Aries talking to Jack backstage after tossing him a towel and says that Jack should consider teaming up with him as he eats a banana. Jack then agrees before leaving as we go to the arena and get a video package for Neville and Rich Swann including their match on RAW last week.
-TJP and Rich talk backstage as they try and clear the air, TJP saying that Rich doesn't have to explain himself and that he suggests that Rich does what he told him to do and take care of business when he faces Neville tonight. Next we get a trailer for WWE 2K18 with Seth Rollins on the cover and featured in the trailer.
Neville vs Rich Swann
Akira Tozawa is at ringside before the match starts, then Rich goes right after Neville who is quick to get out of the ring. Neville gets back in after Rich goes out after him and stomps on him when he comes back in and puts him in a craft that he's quick to get out of before dropkicking Neville back out of the ring. Neville gets back in the ring and they lock up, but the break isn't clean, Neville dropping Swann with a right hand. Swann hits a huricanrrana into a dropkick that sends Neville out of the ring once more before rolling him back into the ring. Neville goes out onto the apron, but Swann dropkicks him, then Neville gets back in and hits a running cross body when Swann runs the ropes to go to the outside.
Neville goes for a superplex, but Swann pushes Neville off before hitting another enzuigiri that sends Neville off of the top rope and to the floor before Swann hits a flipping senton to the outside. They get back in the ring and stare each other down before Swann takes Neville down, but misses a standing moonsault when Neville gets his knees up. Neville sends Swann out of the ring before throwing him into the barricade repeatedly before playing to the crowd and rolling him back into the ring. They get back out of the ring as soon as they get in it and Neville hits a flapjack onto the announce table. Neville rolls Rich back into the ring before he collapses with Neville on the top rope, Rich coming back with a superkick before collapsing to the mat.
Swann drops Neville with a roundhouse kick for a near fall, then Rich hits a Michinoku driver for another near fall. Neville rolls out of the way when Rich goes for a phoenix splash, then Neville locks in the Rings of Saturn for the tap and the win.
Winner: Neville via submission
