Samoa Joe vs. Kazarian
Christy Hemme handles the ring introductions, and our first match of the evening is now officially underway! Joe is in control early on as he battles with Kazarian on the outside of the ring. Back in the ring, Joe lands a big kick. Joe attempts the rear naked choke but Kazarian escapes. "Joe’s gonna kill you" chant breaks out from the crowd. Joe goes for the Muscle Buster but Kazarian escapes. Later, Kazarian catches Joe coming off the ropes for a powerslam to reverse control of the match. Kazarian dominates the offense for a while, until Joe locks in the rear naked choke. Kazarian eventually reaches the ropes. While Joe and the referee argue, Kazarian rolls Joe up from behind for the pin. Joe looks shocked. Kazarian wins.
Mark Haskins vs. Douglas Williams (with Magnus & Rob Terry)
A "who are you" chant breaks out from the crowd. The announcers explain Haskins worked for TNA on their last European tour. Williams gets on the mic in the ring and says it’s one thing to work in front of hometown fans, but another to wrestle on pay-per-view. He tells Haskins he hopes he brought his A-game tonight, because he’s going to need it. Williams sends Magnus and Terry to the back. Haskins slips off the ropes trying to a second-rope spot. Haskins is in control of the offense thus far in the match and has scored several nearfalls on Williams. Haskins misses a Shooting Star Press attempt off the top rope and Williams immediately covered him for the pinfall victory.
Winner: Douglas Williams
