Match 1: Liv Morgan vs. Peyton Royce (with Billie Kay)

The two women go right after each other swinging rights and lefts until Royce grabs the hair taking Morgan to the canvas. Royce takes control with several hard shots and finishes with a headbutt. Next, Royce ties Morgan up in the ropes and yanks backward breaking at the count of four.

Morgan is brought back in the ring and begins to fire back. She catches Royce with a modified sunset flip for a two count. Morgan presses her momentum with a couple of hard clotheslines and a dropkick. Morgan catches a dazed Royce with a bulldog then just throws her down to the mat. Royce hops on the apron to try to distract Morgan so Liv goes over and pops her one sending her to the floor. Morgan cinches in the guillotine submission and has Royce ready to tap until Kay comes in and causes the disqualification.

Winner: Liv Morgan by disqualification.

Post-Match: Morgan fights hard but the advantage quickly goes to Royce and Kaye and they continue to punish Morgan. The crowd chants for Aliyah and she runs out to help Morgan. She is able to even the odds for a quick second but Royce and Kay soon have the upper hand again. Morgan is tossed to the outside and Aliyah is taken out completely when she is thrown into the apron’s video board.

Royce and Kay turn their attention back to Morgan. They roll her back inside the ring and attempt to do something dastardly to her when Ember Moon comes out to make the save. Moon takes out both Royce and Kay, Morgan is able to recover and help run them from the ring area.

We are welcomed to the show by Tom Phillips and Corey Graves. Phillips says one of the matches to be contested at Takeover: Toronto will be the finals of The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

In the arena, it is pitch black and Phillips says it must be the Return. A guitar starts to strum and its none other than the Drifter, Elias Samson. As fans chant “Drift Away,” he welcomes us to the Return and sings a song before making his way to the ring. On his way to the squared circle, Phillips reminds us that Samson is returning from a broken ankle. Samson’s opponent is already in the ring.
