Kendrick turns the tide by slamming Tozawa’s head into the ring post. Kendrick attempts to cover a dazed Tozawa but only gets a two count. Kendrick keeps the pressure on by attempting to lock in the Captain’s Hook but Tazawa works loose. Kendrick locks it into a cross face then a two count.

Kendrick goes for the Captain’s Hook again but Tozawa reverses into a setup for a German suplex. Kendrick fights free but gets knocked to the floor allowing Tozawa to fly on Kendrick. Kendrick and Tozawa battle on the floor until Kendrick is able to grab Tozawa’s leg and tie it to the ropes under the ring for the victory by count out.

The show goes to break.

We are back to see the entrances for our next match, Noam Dar and Mustafa Ali.

Match 2: Noam Dar vs. Mustafa Ali

After the handshake, we are off and running. Dar won’t let Ali get any flow on offense by continually rolling to the floor every time he gets taken to the mat. Ali is able to catch Dar with a spinning heel kick causing Dar to roll to the outside. Ali, very frustrated, took the fight to the outside and dove on Dar.

Dar takes control a short time later with a kick to the shins. He works over Ali’s left arm for a few minutes until Ali catches Dar with a basement dropkick followed shortly by a roll-through neckbreaker for a two count. Ali follows up with a tornado DDT off the second rope but still cant beat Dar.

Dar takes control for good when he is able to catch Ali with a kick to knock Ali off the ropes and cause his head to bounce off the top of the ring post. Dar waits for Ali to pull himself to his feet then catch him with the running kick for the three count.

Gallagher is interviewed live before his match and is asked how he will beat Tony Nese. Gallagher says techniques and footwork then makes his entrance. Tony Nese makes his entrance.

Match 3: Jack Gallagher vs. Tony Nese

After the handshake, we are off and running. Nese tries to assert control with his power while Gallagher tries to use technique and innovative offense. Gallagher ties up Nese early but Nese fights to his feet and Gallagher drives him to the corner. The ref backs Gallagher off allowing Nese to plant a kick to the head and dump Gallagher to the outside. The two men start battling on the floor and Nese gets the better of Gallagher with a superkick.

Nese continues to work over Gallagher back in the ring and locks in a bodyscissors. Gallagher shows strength of his own just pulling apart the legs of Nese to break the hold. The two men fought for control until Gallagher scored a headbutt. Nese rolled to the floor and was able to catch Gallagher’s throat with the ropes. Nese comes back in and takes another headbutt from Gallagher. Gallagher goes for the running dropkick but Nese ducks out to the apron.

Nese catches Gallagher and sets up for a top-rope move but Gallagher fights out causing Nese to get hung upside down in the, “Tree of Woe.” Nese is able to sit up and catch Gallagher with a German suplex. Gallagher was down but Nese could not capitalize allowing Gallagher to recover and catch Nese, still on the top rope. Gallagher pulled off a nice belly-to-back suplex driving Nese to the canvas in a nice move. As Nese pulls himself up, he gets blindsided by the running dropkick in the corner for a three count.

Winner: Jack Gallagher
