Fun match with great reactions

Match ended when Evans gave Cheeseburger a brutal sidewalk slam from the apron through a table at ringside

DQ happened after Anderson and Bennett both pushed down referee Red Shoes several times.  Anderson and Gallows had Maria up for their finisher after the match but Bennett saved her and then got beat down by Anderson and Gallows.

BJ Whitmer and Adam Page vs. War Machine

Whitmer gave Colby Corino his place in the match again saying his father didn't get it two weeks ago. Colby got destroyed again by Hanson and Rose when Page refused to tag in. Whitmer then had a face-off with Steve Corino who was on commentary.

Cedric Alexander defeated Moose

Cedric Alexander came out and said this time last year he was the breakout star of 2014 but he no longer he is. He said he needs to start picking up wins and his first challenge is to the undefeated Moose. Match ended after Moose was holding a wrench Veda Scott gave him but Cedric got it from him and punched him out with it for the pinfall. Good match.

Hiroshi Tanahashi and Tetsuyo Naito defeated ACH and Matt Sydal

This built really well and tore the house down. ACH came off as a star and has stepped up to another level in 2015.

- Nigel McGuinness comes to the ring and calls out Jay Lethal and Jay Briscoe for a contract signing. They faced off and signed the contracts. Lethal said the only reason he doesn't put Briscoe through a table is because he needs him at his best on June 19 so there are no excuses when he beats him. Briscoe says that after he gets done with Lethal he will need to go back to being Black Machismo.

Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Roderick Strong

Strong really dominated here with lots of backbreakers. Nakamura came back and got a Bom A Ye that Strong kicked out of at 1. Strong then hit one and Nakamura got a second one for the pin.

Michael Elgin beat Gedo

This was a bit of a death spot for this match and the crowd was tough. It might have done better elsewhere in the night.

AJ Styles and The Young Bucks beat Kazuchika Okada, Trent Barretta and Ricky Romero

Styles and the Bucks are amazing together and the parts with Okada vs Styles were unbelievable. This might have been Okada's best of his three Toronto matches. The Bucks did a Meltzer Driver on Barretta, Styles picked him up for a Styles Clash and let the Bucks super kick him before song the clash for the pin. Taven and Bennett came out. Okada hit a rainmaker on Styles and CHAOS and The Kingdom celebrated.
