WOLFGANG vs Joseph Conners
They exchange wrist locks and head locks before Wolfgang dropkicks Joe. Wolfgang drops Joe repeatedly, then beats on him when he tries to suplex him and Wolfgang counters and hits a delayed suplex of his own for a quick two count. Wolfgang suplexes Conners, then gets sent off of the top rope and to the floor before Joe hits a baseball slide that sends Wolfgang into the barricade and to the floor. Conners beats on Wolfgang hung over the apron, then rolls him back in the ring and gets a quick two count before jumping and stomping on him before beating on him in the corner. Conners wraps Wolfgang around the ring post, then dropkicks his back, sending him out of the ring.
They get back in the ring and Conners gets a quick two count off of a back drop, then puts him in a modified abdominal stretch. Wolfgang powers out of it and drops Joseph before hitting him with a cross body in the corner and a double axed handle off of the top rope for a quick two count. Conners goes for a move off of the top rope, but Wolfgang gets his knees up, then goes to the top rope for The Howling, but Conners rolls away before he can. Conners hits a sit-out power bomb for a near fall, then Conners comes off of the top rope, but Wolfgang spears him, then hits a swanton bomb off of the top rope for the pin and the win.
Winner: Wolfgang via pinfall
TJ Perkins & The Brian Kendrick VS Dan Moloney & Rich Swann
Kendrick tries to injure the arm of Dan, then tags in TJ who hits a snap mare, then mocks Swann before he and Kendrick start tagging in and out frequently after doing a few moves each time. TJ starts slamming the arm of Dan into the ropes repeatedly from the apron, then he gets out and TJ starts accidentally doing it to Kendrick before he sees what he's doing. Swann finally gets the tag and so does Kendrick after Dan and Swann double team TJ. Swann dives out of the ring and takes out TJ before rolling back in the ring and Kendrick gets the blind tag. Kendrick whips Swann into the turnbuckle repeatedly sternum first, then Dan and TJ get tagged in, Dan taking out both TJ and Kendrick for a near fall before Kendrick breaks it up. TJ stomps on Dan as the crowd calls him a "wanker" before he tags in Kendrick who stands on Dan, then tags TJ back in before TJ hits a slingshot senton for a quick two count.
TJ puts Dan in a submission, but Dan counters with a back suplex before tagging in Swann. Rich knocks Kendrick down repeatedly before hitting a somersault leg drop for a near fall, then Kendrick locks in the Captain's Hook, but Dan breaks it up and gets the tag. Kendrick then rolls up Dan with an inside cradle while holding the tights for the pin and the win.
