Approximately 350 people attended MLW's television tapings -- called "Intimidation Games" -- at GILT Nightclub in Orlando, Florida last night.

- Santana Garrett defeated Chelsea Green

Garrett hit a DDT to win the Battle of the Besties.

- Simon Gotch defeated “a white belt” in his $250 prize fight open challenge

Gotch had said his opponent would win a "large sum cash reward" if they could last five minutes.

- Colonel Parker’s Stud Stable (The Dirty Blondes & Parrow) defeated Team TBD (Jason Cade & Jimmy Yuta) & Rhett Giddins

They had a wild brawl that went all over the place. Parrow was the star of the match with his power, and a miscommunication between their opponents let The Dirty Blondes get the win.

- Maxwell J. Friedman defeated MVP

Sami Callihan and Leon Scott caused the distraction, allowing MJF to win.

- Barrington Hughes defeated an enhancement wrestler

This ended quickly.

- Filthy Tom Lawlor defeated Fred Yehi

After a mat-based match where both used suplexes throughout, Lawlor locked on a choke for the stoppage.

- Rich Swann defeated Kotto Brazil

They had a great match with speed, transitions, mat work, and explosive strikes. Brazil kept up with Swann all the way but couldn't kick out of the corner Phoenix Splash. The crowd loved Swann and sang his theme songs.

- Sami Callihan (w/ Leon Scott and Sawyer Fulton) defeated Joey Janela (w/ Aria Blake)

MJF was sitting ringside in his own VIP lounge and had Janela thrown into him, spilling his champagne. That led to MJF attacking Janela, which allowed Callihan to win.

- MVP defeated Leon Scott (w/ Sami Callihan and Sawyer Fulton) by DQ

Scott, Callihan, and Fulton attacked MVP for the fast disqualification. Kotto Brazil tried to make the save but was shut down quick.

- Fenix (w/ Salina de la Renta) defeated ACH

This was a great match with two of the best. They hit chops and strikes, with Fenix kicking out of the Buster Call and putting ACH away with a driver.

- Jake Hager (w/ Colonel Parker) defeated Jeff Cobb

Impressive strength by both men as they were able to throw each other. The former Jack Swagger locked in the ankle lock for the submission victory.

- MLW Champion Shane Strickland defeated Pentagon Jr. (w/ Salina de la Renta) to retain his title

The crowd was split since both are beloved here. Pentagon hit a Destroyer on the apron and went to spit red mist at Strickland, but he hit de la Renta instead and allowed Strickland to retain.
