MLW Women’s Featherweight Championship

Taya Valkyrie (c) defeated Chelsea Green and Deonna Purrazzo

  • The final moments of the match saw Purrazzo kick referee Brian Hebner out of the ring, then used the opportunity to hit Taya with the title. Green was credited as the winner of the match after she hit the Unprettier and made the cover, as he didn’t see the shenanigans. Karen Jarrett came out and restarted the match, noting that she wouldn’t let it stand. Chelsea and Deonna tried to attack again, but Taya booted Chelsea in the face and sent Deonna outside before getting a bridge pin for the win.

The Wrestling Showcase Final Round

Matt Cardona defeated Josh Alexander and Jacob Fatu

Matt Cardona came out after the initial introductions and says he consulted his lawyer. He wants Fatu thrown out for putting his hands on Cardona during the semifinal match against Myers. Karen Jarrett enters the ring and says she actually agrees with Cardona… but it shouldn’t be a one-on-one match. She officially adds Cardona to the match.

The final moments of the match see Chelsea Green trying to stop Fatu from attacking Cardona. Fatu picks her up instead in Samoan drop position, then Brian Myers runs in and tries to hit him with his title. Fatu turns his attention to him, so Green low blows Fatu, then Myers knocks Fatu down before Cardona crawls over for the cover.

Jon Alba tries to interview Cardona after the win, but Josh Shernoff steals the mic from his hand and Cardona brags about his latest accomplishment.
