Jordynne Grace & Rachael Ellering vs. Tenille Dashwood & Kaleb with a K
Intergender wrestling starts the match with Kaleb with a K finds himself in the ring with Jordynne Grace but quickly tags out. But with some outside interference, Tenille Dashwood takes out both Ellering and Grace. Kaleb’s pants comically come down in the match to set for a tag to Grace, but Dashwood pulls from the corner of the ring. Great back and forth action for what seemed to be a comedic match when first announced. Ellering and Grace hit a unique spinning uranage to pick up the win on Kaleb.

Ace Austin, Madman Fulton, Rohit Raju & Shera vs. Josh Alexander, Chris Bey, Trey Miguel & Petey William
After weeks of alliances finally, these eight men meet in the ring. This match has a great mix of styles, especially with Madman Fulton and Shera in the combination. One thing to point out was Chris Bey’s hot tag interesting to see him come into the match as a big babyface, possibly teasing the future of Bey as a babyface. It was Bey with a schoolboy pin to get the win for his team. A brawl occurs after the win Bey, Williams and Alexander have a chair to even the odds. Shockingly Bey hits Trey Miguel with a chair and runs off, choosing his side, leaving everyone furious that he picked himself.
Winners: Josh Alexander, Chris Bey, Trey Miguel & Petey William
