The streamers flew like snow in the Sierras. Code of Honor handshakes, sort of. The fans called for “Dalton Castle”. Fish and Bruiser began the battle Fish walked over to his corner to strategize.

Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole nearly went to blows, after the match. In the ring, Silas had The Boys to take out the ref. One kicked the ref and the other hit a DDT. Silas was proud of his proteges. Dalton Castle came from the back and got in the ring. Castle was tired of seeing all this happen. Castle stated that The Boys belonged with him. Castle dropped the Beer City Bruiser with a microphone shot to the face. The Boys got up on the apron. It looked like they were about to Jump Ship but they swerved everyone to show that they were not going to be Castle’s Boys…they were ready to be their own Men.

Chris Sabin was in the ring to cut a promo about the Imposter member of the KRD. The red masked man cost The Addiction the tag titles. Sabin accused this imposter of stealing Sabin’s moves. Chris guaranteed that the masked man was NOT him. The masked man came from the back and got in the ring. He removed his mask to reveal…Alex Shelley! The former Motor City Machineguns stood face-to-face. Wow! Would this be a reunion or a feud? We would have to wait until another night to learn the truth.
