He goes up top, but is knocked off the top. Page capitalizes with a crazy fireman’s carry backbreaker. Page isn’t able to get the three count, and Sydal hits the shooting star press for the win.

Decade attacks Sydal after the match. ACH makes the save, but gets attacked too. Page hits a reverse piledriver on Sydal on a bunch of chairs while they make ACH watch.

Veda Scott comes out and trashes Moose. She says Cedric Alexander will prove that potential doesn’t win matches, aggressiveness and her guidance wins matches.

Silas Young vs. Will Ferrara

Ferrara gets a nice ovation from his hometown crowd. Young grabs a headlock, but Ferrara outwrestles him and applies a short-arm scissors. Young lifts Ferrara up and drops him while still in the hold. Young applies another headlock, but Ferrara fights back and hits a tornado DDT for 2.

Ferrara goes for a sunset flip for a two, and gets hit with a big lariate. Dalton Castle’s Boys come out and distract Silas Young, allowing Ferrara to roll up Young for the pin.
