– RJ City cuts a promo, heeling it up and complaining about his lack of reaction and that there was no standing ovation.

Jake overpowers Abraham to begin, but Abraham hits a jawbreaker and tags in Coleman and he hits a clothesline and dropkick. City crotches him on the post to cut him off and then tags himself in. He grounds the action; the heels work quick tags and isolate Coleman. City hits a flatliner and poses. Coleman cuts him off with a spear, and tags in Abraham. Jake in as well, Abraham trips him up and then City. Coleman does pushups, it breaks down and Abraham hits an air raid crash. City takes out Coleman, and Jake hits the black hole slam on Abraham. City tags in, argues with Jake, and Jake turns on him and lays him out. He bails allowing Abraham to hit a splash for the win. Hala Beefcake defeated RJ City & Jake Something @ 6:22 via pin [**] This was an ok, but very disjointed opener.

Fulton cuts him off with a TKO, and the flatliner follows for the win. Mad Man Fulton defeated Mavado @ 4:25 via pin [*] This was bad, Fulton looked ok, but Mavado is a horrifically bad professional wrestler.

Scarlett Bordeux defeated Gisele Shaw @ 9:05 via pin [**]This was an ok match, but was really slow, and had no aggression or sense of urgency.

Chemical imbalance by Sydal follows, but Mattson cuts him off until Petey makes the save. Petey hits the destroyer on Austin and that’s that. Petey Williams defeated Matt Sydal, Ace Austin, & N8 Mattson @ 12:50 via pin [***¼ ] While not a wide open X-division style match, this was a good and smartly worked professional wrestling match with three veterans and an energetic youngster delivering a fun outing. I really like Austin, and think he has a lot of potential.

Moose begs off of the DQ, and Impact superkicks him and hits starship pain and picks up the win.Johnny Impact defeated Moose @ 20:20 via pin [***½] While it may have gone a bit long and the ending was overbooked, this was an overall very good main event. They did a good job of playing the story that Moose was trying to injure Impact ahead of his BFG match with Aries, and they worked well together.
– Post match, Impact says Moose brought the fight, but he took him to Slamtown. On Sunday at BFG, the talking and tweeting will be done as Impact will take the title from him.
– End Scene.
