Terry Taylor was the showrunner tonight.

(1) Hugo Knox beat Blake at 6:37 via neckbreaker. Knox looked good and the crowd was behind him.

(2) Carmella beat Aliyah at 7:17 with the Code of Silence. Aliyah has athleticism, but she struggled with ring positioning and timing. Still learning.

(3) Oney Lorcan (f/k/a Biff Busick) beat Noah at 7:32 with a half crab. The crowd wasn’t reacting to a rest hold, so Oney got out, pounded the mat, and hulked up to draw the crowd in.

(4) Authors of Pain (without Paul Ellering) squashed two individuals Adrian Jaoude & Niko Bogojevic at 1:41. Lots of “oohs” and “aahs” for Pain’s power moves.

(5) Shinsuke Nakamura beat Murphy at 8:03 via Kinshasa. Nakamura clowned a bit and Murphy got easy heat stealing his moves.


(6) TM61 (Mikey Nicholls & Shane Haste) beat Alexander Wolfe & Sawyer Fulton at 11:51 via double-team finisher on Fulton. Fulton’s right arm brace is so big it could be grounds for DQ if utilized.

Andrea D’Marco interviewed Bronson Matthews (Josh from Tough Enough). It’s a good thing he’s a heel, as the fans did not give him a chance. An unidentified man (Babatunde Aiyegbusi) interrupted Bronson to “what?” chants. They went back and forth, then Bronson got bodyslammed.

(7) Bayley beat Billie Kay at 7:59 via Bayley-to-Belly suplex. Good match.

(8) NXT champion Samoa Joe & Austin Aries beat Hideo Itami & Andrade “Cien” Almas via submission at 12:43 in the main event. Joe choked out Almas for the win. Fun finale. Itami wrestled most of the way for the good guys.
