Tonight’s announce team was Excalibur, “The Human Suplex Machine” Taz, and FTW Champion “Absolute” Ricky Starks.
“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson of The Blackpool Combat Club vs. Matt Sydal!

Bryan used a full nelson takedown on Sydal. Bryan followed up with European uppercuts. Danielson was looking to stretch Sydal, applying a surfboard of sorts. Matt Sydal countered with a big-time leg lariat!

“Danielson got caught big time,” said Taz.

Sydal finally grabbed the ropes, forcing ref Paul Turner to break the hold.
Danielson walloped Sydal with kicks to the chest. Danielson connected with a headbutt to Sydal. They climbed to the top rope and Sydal hit a sunset flip powerbomb on Danielson for a near fall! Bryan began to clutch at his knee.

The Young Bucks—Matt & Nick Jackson vs. Taylor Rust and John Cruz!
The Young Bucks made their entrance dressed as the Hardy’s…complete with Gangrel!
Nick hit a shoulder tackle on Cruz. Matt tagged in and he and Nick used some of the Hardy’s’ tandem offense on their opponent.
“They’re playing the Hardy’s greatest hits here tonight, trying to get into the Hardy’s’ heads.,” said Excalibur.
Cruz jumped off the top rope but ate double superkicks from the Bucks! Matt Jackson connected with the Twist of Fate. Nick Jackson dropped the Swanton bomb and he pinned Cruz!
The Bucks ambushed Gangrel after the match, targeting one of the Hardy’s old friends.
The Hardy’s came out and confronted the Bucks in the ring!
“We might not have to wait until Sunday,” said Taz.
The Hardy’s were about to nail the Bucks with the Twist of Fate but Brandon Cutler hit Matt and Jeff from behind. Gangrel helped the Hardy’s and then Jeff smashed Brandon with the Swanton!
Backstage, Darby Allin challenged Kyle O’Reilly to a match this Sunday at DOUBLE OR NOTHING!
The Acclaimed’s “Platinum” Max Caster (with Anthony Bowens, Billy, Austin and Colten Gunn) vs. Dante Martin!
Dante hit a high cross body to the outside of the ring as Bowens was talking on the microphone. Billy Gunn rammed Dante into the ring apron! Ref Aubrey Edwards ejected the Acclaimed and the Gunn Club from the ringside area.
Dante dropped the nosedive and pinned Max Caster after a competitive match from both men!
“Dante Martin has grown into a very impressive athlete,” said Excalibur.
American Top Team’s Dan Lambert was out with “All Ego” Ethan Page to present TNT Champion Scorpio Sky with a replacement title!
Lambert: “We live in crazy times, but if you need anything, you come see ‘Dynamite Dan.’ We needed a new belt for Scorpio Sky.”
Ethan Page: “Ladies and gentlemen, the TNT Champion, Scorpio Sky. And now that Sky has the belt that matches the talent—”
Sammy Guevara, Tay Conti, and Frankie Kazarian appeared on the screen. They broke into the American Top Team gym. Sammy stole the BMF title!
“You want these back? Be sure to be in Vegas on Sunday,” said Frankie Kazarian.
Sky: “You guys want it? You want a mixed trios match? You three scumbags against me, Ethan Page, and Paige VanZant this Sunday at DOUBLE OR NOTHING. And if we win—Frankie, Sammy, neither of you can challenge for the TNT Championship again. And you’re getting your ass kicked this Sunday!”
Main Event Time!
Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Semi-Final Match!
Kris Statlander vs. Ruby Soho!
“I’m really liking Statlander’s new attitude,” said Starks.
Statlander connected with a shoulder block to Ruby Soho. Statlander had an early advantage, going for the cover, but Soho kicked out.
Ruby used a deep arm drag. Kris came back with a forearm and then a stiff lariat! Statlander carried Ruby up to the top rope but Ruby countered with a hurracanrana.
Statlander fired back with a step-up powerbomb for a near fall on Ruby Soho! Statlander tweaked her shoulder as she charged at Soho but Soho moved, which forced Kris’ momentum to send her into the turnbuckles.
Ruby yanked Kris’ arm down with an arm bar. Ruby was looking for Destination: Unknown but Kris fought out and blasted Ruby with a German suplex for a near fall.
Kris Statlander tried for the Spider Crab but Ruby’s leg came free and she booted Kris’ shoulder. Ruby rolled up Statlander and pinned her! Ruby advances to the finals this Sunday at DOUBLE OR NOTHING!
Dr. Britt Baker came out with a microphone!
Soho: “Put that microphone down Britt. No one wants to hear you anymore. I need to tell you something right now, Britt. Kris is my friend. I love her and I respect her and you see what I did. I don’t like you, Britt, and this Sunday I’m going to hurt you bad.”
