Dasha Gonzalez did the ring announcing for this show and let us know that Joe Alonzo "does everything for the views."

The Natural Nightmares (Dustin Rhodes & QT Marshall w/ Brandi Rhodes) defeated Matt Sells & Jon Cruz (w/ Skyler Moore)

Sells and Cruz are an awesome jobber team. Sells looks like a cross between DDP and Shane Douglas. 

Rhodes controlled the early part of the match with basic arm drag/shoulder tackle offense. 

Marshall tagged in and got cut off after an illegal knee from the apron by Cruz and a forearm by Sells. Sells hit a neckbreaker for a two count. Marshall made a tag to Rhodes, who hit some signature offense. 

The finish saw Marshall and Rhodes hit their unnamed tandem finisher, allowing Marshall to pin Cruz.

SCU (Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian) defeated Robert "Ego" Anthony & Shawn Spears (w/ Tully Blanchard)

This was the best and most competitive match on the show. The story of the match was that Anthony was actually pretty good and Spears was to blame for the loss. 

Excalibur put over Anthony's 20 years of experience. 

Anthony and Kazarian began. Kazarian used a hip toss and an armbar to control Anthony. The gave Anthony some credibility as he nearly countered out of each of Kazarian's holds.

Daniels and Spears tagged in and things went south for the Spears and Anthony duo. Daniels hit an interfering Anthony with an STO. Kazarian hit a double stomp to Spears. 

Anthony interfered from the floor and pulled Kazarian outside. Spears hit a spinebuster on Daniels and took control of the bout. 

Spears did a comedy spot where he jumped the railing and chanted for himself. Anthony and Spears worked over Daniels. 

Daniels ducked a clothesline and made a hot tag to Kazarian, who used a lariat on Anthony for a near fall. Kazarian hit a springboard leg drop on Anthony for a two count. 

Spears tried to interfere but twice accidentally hit Anthony. Anthony hit a rolling DVD on Kazarian for a two count. 

The finish saw Anthony accidentally hit Spears with a clothesline. Spears then rolled out of the ring and left Anthony on his own. Daniels and Kazarian hit the Best Meltzer Ever for the pin.

Blanchard gave a thumbs down after the match and Spears hit a C4 on Anthony.

Kip Sabian (w/Penelope Ford) defeated Suge D

Suge D is better known as Sugar Dunkerton. 

Sabian was canoodling in the corner with Ford after the opening bell rang, allowing Suge to use a quick roll-up for a two count. Sabian took the ref and Ford hit a drive-by dropkick on the apron. 

Sabian hit a hangman neckbreaker for a two count. Suge used an intricate series of counters and reversals and hit a rolling elbow for a two count. 

Sabian hit a half-and-half suplex, then used a Russian leg sweep to set up the Cruciatus Clutch. Suge tapped out.

Colt Cabana defeated Brandon Cutler

These two had a solid babyface match with a simple story and a splash of comedy.

Cabana outwrestled Cutler in the opening minutes of the match. Cabana got cocky, then Cutler began to answer Cabana hold for hold. 

Cutler hit a suicide dive. Cabana climbed back inside and Cutler tried a springboard attack. Cabana sidestepped and Cutler crashed to the mat. 

Cabana then used a bionic elbow and a Superman Pin to put away Cutler.

Janela and Kiss opened the match working over Hollis. Kiss hit a double back handspring into a slap to the face. 

Hollis caught a kick from Kiss, then Reed hit Kiss with a knee strike to the face and took control of the match. 

Reed hit Kiss with some forearm shots. Kiss escaped a back suplex and Janela got the hot tag. 

Janela hit a high cross off the top and a jawbreaker on Reed. Hollis jumped in and ate a DVD. Kiss hit an axe kick in the corner. Janela used Kiss as a launch pad and hit a top rope elbow.

The finish saw Kiss use a split-legged leg drop off the second rope, then cover Reed for the pin.
