To open the show Tenay and West talked on camera and as usual we didn’t hear anything.
(1) NWA World Tag Team champion Eric Young (w/Scott D’amore and Bobby Roode) vs. Tennessee Cowboy James Storm (w/ Chris Harris)
Mike Posey and Andrew Thomas ordered Roode and Harris to the locker room as Storm unloaded on Young. Storm’s offensive attack lasted for several minutes until D’amore broke up an attempted top rope huracanrana by Storm. There was a collision and all three men (including referee Rudy Charles) went down. D’amore entered the ring and went to hit Storm with the flagpole but Storm hit him with a punch. Young got to his feet and hit Storm in the head, then covered Storm. Roode ran out to attack Storm but Harris came back to defend his partner.
(2) Dustin Rhodes defeated Chris Candido.
Candido put up a good fight but Rhodes was too much for him as he hit the Bulldog headlock for the quick victory.
Back from commercial they replayed the Titus/Ryan Wilson vignette.
(3) AJ Styles defeated “Hotshot” Cassidy Reilly.
Reilly and Styles went back and forth until Reilly got control by running Styles’ head into the ring barricade and his back into the ring post. Back in the ring Reilly put Styles in an interesting submission move but Styles didn’t tap out. Reilly hit Styles with a handspring elbow but his moonsault hit Styles’ knees. Styles got back on the offensive and finished off Reilly with the springboard into the slop drop.
Backstage Raven attacked Erik Watts with a trash can shot to the head and then told him he still had Watts wrapped around his finger. Tracy Brooks showed Trinity and Johnny Fairplay another clue, something about a match at Final Resolution.
(4) “Primetime” Elix Skipper defeated David Young.
Young was supposed to be the babyface but it didn’t happen that way. Skipper beat up Young for a few minutes until Young back suplexed skipper over the top rope and to the floor. Skipper was able to recover and hit the Play of the Day to win the match.
The same Ultimate X match vignette played before the main event. Shane Douglas spoke to Team Canada about their matches at Final Resolution.
(5) “The Future” Chris Sabin defeated “Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels to get the third spot in the Ultimate X match at Final Resolution.
Watch this match because it was amazing. Sabin hit Daniels with a spinning flip and landed hard on the floor. The match went to commercial as both men fought on the floor hitting the barricades and each other. The action returned to the ring as Daniels countered Sabin’s attempted springboard move with an STO. Daniels worked on Sabin’s neck, possibly for the Angel’s Wings. Sabin went for a head scissor but Daniels countered with a power bomb. Daniels attacked Sabin’s neck once more hitting a modified DVD but each move didn’t lead to a victory. Both men pelted each other with forearm shots to the face but Sabin hit an enziguri to send Daniels to the mat. Sabin hit two clotheslines and a sit out power bomb but got 2. Daniels hit a spinning backbreaker and an STO but got 2. Daniels went for a triple jump moonsault but missed and Sabin hit him with a tornado DDT. Sabin went for the Cradle Shock but Daniels countered and went for the Angels Wings. Sabin countered out and rolled Daniels up for the win.
After the taping the gentleman wearing the “Free Niemi, F*ck Fairplay” shits attempted to get a photo with Fairplay but he wouldn’t be a good sport and ran into the locker room
