* â€œThe Completeâ€ Pete Hunter w/ â€œThe REAL Pitbullâ€ Gary Wolfe defeated Joey Matthews.

Â After back and forth armdrags and hiptosses, Hunter hit a big dropkick, sending Matthews outside. Â Matthews pushed Hunter into a corner, but Hunter exploded out of the corner with a Thesz Press.

When Matthews went for another crab, Hunter kicked him off and hit furious punches, big clotheslines, and a huge powerslam. Â But Pete was stopped on the top rope by Matthews, who hit a superplex. Â Hunter tried to build back, but his legs were suffering. Â Matthews tried to go for the kill, but Pete rolled up Matthews for the win! Â Matthews attacked Hunter with a chair, but hightailed it once Gary Wolf entered the ring and grabbed the chair.
* In The Crazy 8 match, 2 Cold Scorpio regains the PWU World Heavyweight Title against Devon Moore and Detox.
The structure where the PWU Title is hung in the rafters and filled by steel cages, six rope swings, tables, chain ladders, and more, is truly unpredictable. Â Swinging from the rafters and jumping from the top of a cage is no exact science. Â Itâ€™s an experience the athletes in the match canâ€™t even plan strategy for until they are in the moment, swinging in mid air. Â The match started by Scorpio gaining an early advantage, hitting stiff elbows. But Devon Moore and Detox took him down with a double back suplex from the top. Â Moore was first to use the rope swings, hitting Scorpio with a swinging Dead End elbow in the corner. Â Detox hit Scorpio with a hurricanrana to the outside and after swinging to the cage, Devon Moore hit both men with a flipping plancha. Â After an amazing aerial display from Detox and Moore, Scorpio powerbombed Detox onto Moore, then slammed both in the Â ring. Â After hitting an amazing moonsault, Scorpio went back up, destroying Detox with a flipping Leg drop. Â Moore then used a rope swing to knock Scorpio to the floor. Â Scorpio found his wind and went for the belt, but Detox bulldog him to the floor from the cage top. Â Both men continued their assault, flying on the ropes and off the cages. Â Moore and Detox moved from a plancha over the ropes by Scorpio, but Moore missed a shooting star press. Â Scorpio then hit Detox with a moonsault from the apron. Â Scorpio made it to the cage top, but is knocked through a table on the floor by Moore. Â Detox fought Moore on top of the cage, but is given a running suplex through a table on the floor. Â Detox and Moore were both busted open by the high risk maneuver, allowing Scorpio time to climb to the rafters of the New Alhambra and grab the belt to reclaim the PWU World Heavyweight Title.
