Eddie Edwards jumps Aries on the ramp with the kendo stick. Aries vs. Edwards is made as a title match for next week.

Alisha talks about returning to the ring soon and sounds incredibly bored. Eddie tells her he’s done a lot of soul-searching and he’s going to make things better. She boringly states she can’t deal with him now. God bless her, but mic skills are not exactly her forte. Scarlett Bordeaux comes out in a hot red dress. She definitely projects star power more here than in ROH. Scarlett tells the flumoxed interviewer that he means to ask her what it’s like to be in a world of 3s and 4s as a 10 and she will not be hot shamed.

Grado, Kat, and Joe Henry are backstage and Grado confronts Eli about his gift. Grado says he’ll settle the issue in a wrestling match – a tag match. Eli gets the Cult of Lee involved sorta. Eli is out with Caleb and Eli dominates Grado for a bit. Eli hits the Gravy Train when Joe holds Kat back from the Cult of Lee. Gama Singh slaps his team before OVE vs. the Lucha Bros gets a hype graphic.

Matt Sydal talks about not caring about material things and being a champion is a temporary thing – but that loss has given him a lesson because there is more in store from the universe for him. The Crists start things off hot with a double dive that takes out a guardrail. They brawl outside and toss the Crists together before a double kick and double flip dive! The Crists hit a double stomp tombstone for 2.9! Dave Crist eats a Fear Factor and double stomp for 2.9 off a Jake save. Penta snake eyes Jake onto the apron where Fenix double stomps his back!
