before the show
Kushida won a six-way match in the tenth division. Other competitors included the Angels, Yuya Uemura, 73-year-old Mike Jackson, “Speedball” Mike Bailey, and Delirius. Bhupinder Gujjar is announced but not in the competition. First pin or submission equals winning. Kenny King ambushes Billy to knock him out of the turnbuckles on the floor. Jackson, Angels, and Delirious were in the corner on the turnbuckles. Kushida ran in for a double handball kick on Jackson and Delirius. The time splitter captured the Angels for a Spanish fly to armbar submission for the victory.
X-Division Championship: Trey Miguel retained against Black Taurus. The match was moved from PPV to the pre-show. Crazzy Steve was at ringside as Decay’s hype man. Hit the bull with a super gorilla press fatal blow. In the Destination Hellhole elevator, Trey escaped to confront the vortex of lightning. Trey put his feet on the ropes for the pin, but the referee caught him. Trey rolled out of the ring sticking a foreign object in his pants and also grabbing a can of spray paint. Paint verdict. Taurus charged at the Destination Hellhole, but Trey pulled out a second paint can to spray the bull in the eyes. This was all part of Trey’s devious plan to cheat. Trey finished with a second Lightning Spiral for the victory.
Rosemary, Taya Valkyrie, and Jessica vs. Tasha Stiles, Savannah Evans, and Gisele Shaw are not in the pre-show as advertised.
