Incredible match, a MOTY level performance by both men. Crowd was fired up and got hotter as it went. Amazing near falls and counters. Ibushi won with his powerbomb. Fans chanted for the WWE to sign them both after the match.

Alexander even had a curtain call and quick appearance by Triple H to put his arm on Alexander before taking him away. Loud reaction. Unbelievable match and star making performance.

- Akira Tozawa beat Jack Gallagher

Good match, they knew there was no following the athletic display of the last match, so there was a lot of character work and submissions. A lot of fun teases and counters. Tozawa won with a delayed German suplex.

- Noam Dar beat HoHo Lun

Crowd had some fun singing the Darth Vader song with “Dar” as each word. Ankle lock and head stomps for Dar to take the win.

- The Brian Kendrick beat Tony Nese

Good subtle and vicious work by Kendrick, really selling his desire for the win. Nese was impressive and missed a 450 to allow Kendrick to catch a crossface for the tap

- Zack Sabre Jr. beat Drew Gulak

They traded holds all match, even up to the middle ropes. There was instant striking and grappling. Crowd appreciated it and sang for ZSJ. It broke down into a strike-fest with strong style chops. 

- TJ Perkins beat Johnny Gargano

Great match and a big surprise. Gargano sold a leg injury and kept fighting. This was an impressive performance by both, an EVOLVE style match with strikes and holds. Perkins finally caught Gargano's bad leg in a grapevine leg lock and forced the submission.
