Laredo Kid vs. Black Taurus w/Crazzy Steve
The two men get started immediately with a huge chop from Black Taurus, and as Laredo Kid tries to use his agility, Taurus blocks it with his power advantage. Kid then misses in the corner and that allows Taurus to attack the arm again. Kid does manage to connect with a boot in the corner though and he then flies in after, but that is followed by a big uppercut from Taurus.
Laredo looks for a cutter but that gets blocked and immediately turned into a sling blade. Taurus then charges into the corner but Laredo reverses, pushing him up to hang him on the top ropes with both legs straddling it. He follows up with a cutter from that spot, but Taurus is able to kick out.
Taurus gets Laredo up on his shoulders, but that gets reversed into a crucifix bomb, only for him to fire back by charging in with the horns to Kid’s head. Taurus charges too quick into the corner, bouncing over the turnbuckles out of the ring and Laredo follows it with a moonsault to the outside.
Back in the ring, Laredo goes for another, but this time Taurus gets the feet up to block and he follows that with a pop-up Samoan drop, but Kid kicks out of the subsequent pinfall attempt. Taurus then goes to the top rope following orders from Crazy Steve, but that backfires as Kid gets up and slaps him several times. He then looks for a Spanish Fly but Taurus gets out and slams him down to the mat from the top rope. He follows it with the Powerbull and this time gets the win.

Swann manages to fight back though, sending Myers into the corner of the weapons with a Death Valley Driver, but Myers kicks out again.
Swann then hits Myers with the monitor, but as he sets it between the top two turnbuckles, it allows Myers to hit a Spear, and he then sends Swann head-first through the frame of the monitor, but he only gets a near fall for that. The two men then brawl up the ramp, but as Myers sends Swann to the ropes, he hits a handspring back into the cutter on the ramp!
Swann then comes charging in and dives over the top rope, but Myers smashes him in the face with the keyboard, following up with the Roster Cut to win the title!

Both men then tag out and Ace Austin attacks the back of Chris Sabin, following up with a pinfall attempt. Despite that, Shelley comes in, and MCMG hit a quick double team to take control.
MCMG continue the quick tags as Sabin returns and hits several dropkicks while Shelley keeps hold of Austin. Shelley then dives in and lands directly on the ribs of Austin, but Bey comes in to help his partner, sending Sabin out of the ring.

Bullet Club hit a double team and then a Famouser, but Sheller is able to kick out.Austin then uses his playing card to try and provide a paper cut, and that sees the heels continue to stay in control.

But, as the tag seems to be ready, Bey pulls Sabin away yet again, and then Austin nails a kick to the face followed by a dive in from Bey to add to the situation, yet Shelley kicks out. Shelley smartly avoids an attack from Austin though who accidentally kicks his partner and this allows Sabin to enter and nail a double clothesline.
Sabin connects with a rolling Fisherman’s Suplex to Bey, but it’s not enough to get the win.MCMG both end up getting caught by kicks from Bey, yet they end up taking Austin down to his knees, while putting Bey on top of him and as Sabin dives down with a dropkick Sheley hits a double flatliner at the same time.
The official then ends up checking on Shelley, and that opens up a chance for Bullet Club to work together hitting double teams to wear Sabin down. Shelley gets back to pull Austin away from the top rope, and he then picks up Bey, launching him off his back as Sabin hits a dropkick. Sabin then hits the Cradle Shot, but Austin pushes Shelley into them to break up the pinfall attempt.

The challenger then opts to leave his feet with a crossbody attempt but misses, and Alexander then sends him flying to the floor.
But Doering doesn’t stay down for long as he gets up and nails a huge clothesline, charging the champion into the ring apron straight after. Back in the ring he continues the domination, hitting an elbow drop for good measure. The champion tries to rally with a few chops, but with just one from Doering the champion is dropped to the mat.
The champion does hit a couple of boots in the corner, but Deaner ends up grabbing the boot which allows Doering to attack again with a clothesline and then another elbow drop, this time from the bottom rope for extra height. Alexander does finally take down the bigger man though with a knee attack, and he then begins to connect with several forearm strikes.
He then uses the momentum off the ropes to hit a German suplex, but he shows even more strength to connect with a Northern Lights suplex, but Doering kicks out of the pin attempt. He then goes for an ankle lock, but Doering gets him out of that easily and the two end up brawling on the ring apron until Doering clotheslines Alexander back in.
Somehow Alexander connects with a suplerplex from the top rope, and he follows that by taking out Deaner to try level things up. But that distraction gives Doering time to recover, and he hits yet another elbow drop. The champion keeps fighting though, hitting a trio of German suplexes to show his fighting spirit!
Alexander looks for some clotheslines but they make no impact as Doering then hits a flying crossbody and the chain of sorrow, but Alexander kicks out in time. He looks for the Revolution Bomb, but Alexander gets out and into the Ankle Lock once again, but somehow Doering stands up out of it and nails a clubbing lariat, but Alexander kicks out!
Once again Alexander escapes the Revolution Bomb, but he is dropped with another lariat, but the champion then manages to pull together plenty of strength to hit the C4 Spike to retain his title and end Doering’s undefeated run!
Winner (and still champion): Josh Alexander
