ARYIYA DAIVARI DEFEATED RAUL MENDOZA

Daivari used a side headlock and hit some chops. Mendoza hit a cartwheel, a leapfrog, then sent Daivari outside, which led to nothing. Back inside, Mendoza hit a tijeras, then a springboard tijeras. Mendoza hit a suicide dive. 

Mendoza tried another springboard attack, but Daivari shoved him off the ropes to the floor. Daivari sent Mendoza into the steps, then tossed him back inside. He hit an elbow drop for a near fall, then worked a chinlock. 

Mendoza broke free of the chinlock, only to be hip tossed into the buckle. Daivari tried a top rope splash but missed. They exchanged strikes. Mendoza connected with a disaster kick, then a springboard missile dropkick for a near fall. 

Daivari dodged a pump kick, then hit a uranage for a two count. Mendoza answered with another disaster kick, then hit a modified black hole slam. Daivari blocked another pump kick and hit a superkick. 

The finish saw Mendoza hit two kicks. He tried a uranage, but Daivari blocked, then hit a hammerlock lariat for the pin.

This featured some good action, but if I were putting these matches together I would have suggested picking up the pace. The crowd was dead.

Jack Gallagher cut a selfie promo backstage. He said it's no secret that he's been unlucky lately, but he's here tonight to remind Angel Garza and himself that he's great. He said if he loses, he doesn't know what he'll do. 

Garza then cut a promo. He said he doesn't care what happens to Jack, and that he wants to beat Jack again, "Because everybody knows what Garza gets, what Garza wants." He said after he's done with Jack, he wants Lio Rush to stop avoiding him and give him a rematch. 

Both promos were actually quite good, but Garza's verbiage was slightly off.

DANNY BURCH DEFEATED GREG WILLIAMS

This was a squash. Williams was the perfect jobber and took a heck of a beating. 

They locked up. Williams hit a slap to the face. Burch answered with a big right hand, then used a headlock takeover. Burch hit a shoulder block. Williams tried a leapfrog, but Burch turned it into a flapjack. 

Burch hit a couple of European uppercuts, then a vertical suplex. Williams got a brief spurt of offense with a jaw breaker and some strikes, but Burch responded with a headbutt, a German suplex, then hit the Hangman's DDT, a draping DDT from the top rope, for the pin.
