Brian Cage squashes a jobber and wins with the Drill Claw/Steiner Screwdriver. Eddie Edwards talks to Lashley about teaming up and fighting OVE tonight.

Sydal faces Petey in a Grand Title match for Destiny wrestling in Canada. They’re in a dimly-lit building that shows part of a the front row and that’s it – so this is just great-looking for TV. Petey hits a flatliner and Sonjay talks about how so many people try to do the Destroyer now, but no one does it as well. Sydal hits the no-hands rana and misses the SSP. Petey hits a pop-up powerbomb, but Petey eats a modified Dudebuster and wins it. Kongo Kong and Jimmy Jacobs come out and then Grandma Jenny comes down too.
