Physics betrays theory as he tries to pick up Bronson Reed but ends up with the big man landing on him, Reed delivers a senton and goes to the top rope for a splash to get the win over Theory.

Roderick Strong vs Killian Dain

Bobby Fish comes out with Roderick Strong, and is the difference maker as he uses every opportunity to protect strong and attack Dain. This performance by Dain is brilliant, never looking on the weak end of the fight, only losing edge because of Bobby Fish interruption, leading to Roderick Strong winning the match with a jumping knee. Afterward Strong and Fish start to attack Killian Dain, but Drake Maverick comes out with a pipe to get rid of UE and offers a handshake to Dain who knocks him out again.

Food Fight

Mercedes Martinez vs Rhea Ripley – Steel Cage

Mercedes immediately throws some chairs into the cage and goes to put a table in, but gets attacked by Rhea. Rhea takes the opportunity to beat down Mercedes and throw in the table herself. As the match starts it’s an immediate offensive for both competitors. It’s an outstanding display of aggression, both doing all they can to put away the other, Ripley even kicking Mercedes’ head outside the ring at times

Great spot with Rhea having Mercedes in a submission, but she grabs a kendo stick to hit Rhea forcing her to let go. Robert Stone tries to climb in to get involved but Rhea stops him, but as she tries to attack him Mercedes is able to take advantage and deliver a neckbreaker off the top rope.

After an intense battle the match ends with a Ripley victory following a Riptide through a table.
