Prelim Tag Match #1.
Anton Crowley & Cali-Kate v. Remi Fontaine & Layla Aishe
The tag matches started like many others will today, with the two teams figuring out who will start. Anton and Kate were on the same page and Kate simply stood out of the way at the corner post as Crowley indicated his wish to start. Crowley stood in the ring, as Remi entered for his team, the young man looked slightly nervous to be across the ring from the Demon Prince. Though it didn’t take long for Fontaine to buck up and off the ropes, taking Crowley down with a swinging neckbreaker! Aishe cheered her team mate! Remi looked to keep his momentum going, delivering some strong kicks to Anton, but the moment he tried to whip Crowley into the ropes, Anton’s answer was a clothesline from hell! The pair battled back from there, Remi hitting the Demon Prince with a running drop kick that bounced Anton off the ropes. Anton rallying by hip tossing Remi clear across the ring and then bouncing him out entirely with a blue thunder driver. Remi climbed up and gave a tag to Layla, who came in and hit Anton with a Thesz Press! Layla drove her fists across Anton’s face, until Anton bucked her off. Anton hit the tag to Kate, who jumped up over the ropes and dropkicked Layla back into her own corner. The two woman fought one hell of a match, Layla recovering from the kick and keeping Kate on her toes, she gets a two count off a huge move until Kate kicks out. That seemed to motivate Kate to lay out Layla with Starstruck! Kate picks up the three count off her finisher!
Winners: House Crowley
Prelim Tag Match #2.
Angel Kash & Carter Slade v. The Regulators
Once again Carter started the match because Kash refused to go first. Sativa stepped in for the Regulators. Carter went for a spear, and Sativa beat some joined fist hammer strikes across his back doing her best to make him regret the spear. The pair popped to their feet and traded blows, strike for strike and a couple of stiff cross chest chops from Carter. Sativa hits Carter with a big northern lights suplex that shows off her strength and determination. Carter shakes it off well enough and gets in a knee strike to the head in, after bouncing Sativa off the ropes but he can’t capitalize because he’s too close to his corner and Kash tags herself in. An offended Carter stares at her before Kash trots over and picks Sativa up by the hair, while the ref is getting Carter out of the ring. Angel hits a hair pull assisted Buyout! But Kash can’t go for the pin either, because she spied a heated Morgan Payne charging into the ring to break it up and rolled under the ropes. The Ref got Morgan back in her corner, as Sativa holding her head rolled over for a tag, Kash tags Carter back in and gestures for him to get to work! Carter shook his head but got back in the ring. He managed to take Morgan to the ground as she raced into the ring and deliver a set of hard kicks to her head and ribs. An irate Payne swept him off his feet, and returned the favor with stomps. Carter got back up and again the pair traded blows, Payne trying to past him at Angel Kash, who kept stupidly taunting Morgan, sighing and rolling her eyes at Payne, flicking her head dismissively. Finally Carter insisted that Morgan just fight the damn match. Payne grinned, kicked him the balls, and even as the Ref was calling for the bell she delivered her F.Y.F knee to his head!
Winners: Angel Kash & Carter Slade
Prelim Tag Match #3.
Minoru Tanahashi & Tren Descarrilado v. Debby Haze & Savannah Sunshine
Minoru came out in one of his fine tailored suits and sat at commentary, kicking his feet up. Tren marched stone faced over to his corner and the match began after Debbie and Savannah decided that Sunshine would start. Sunshine put up a valiant fight, bringing Tren to the ground multiple times, and everytime Minoru would make a supportive crack on commentary. But once Tren got a roll it was impossible to stop the freight train of a man. He slammed Savannah around the ring and roared to the crowd who threw their weight behind Sunshine. Sunshine managed to rally back, sidewalk slamming Tren down, but the Train Wreck didn't stay down long enough for a two count on the cover. The pair take the fight to each other, exchanging hard kicks and driving slams, Savannah coming off the ropes caught Tren with a Huricanrana that dropped him squarely in the corner by Debbie. Haze steps into the ring after a tag and the pair heft Tren up, Savannah comes off the turnbuckle and together they slam Tren into the canvas. This doesn’t wreck the Tren though and he kicks out so hard it tosses Haze off of him. It’s a fair enough back and forth from there Debbie could do little to stop the big man. She slows him down a lot, discoing her way into several near pinfalls but eventually Tren gets her up in the air, and hit his Bullet Train to Hell! He covered for the three! Minoru jumped up and clapped, dusted himself off and started toward the back.
Winners: Minoru Tanahashi & Tren Descarrilado
Prelim Tag Match #4.
Sela Rica-Lark & Milisandre Crowthorne defeat Emevlas Stastias & HEIDI
Days of coming up short on victories in the tournament had driven Emevlas Stastias to the point of frustration that, as Sela Rica-Lark and Milisandre Crowthorne were headed to the ring, Stastias lead the charge as she and HEIDI came running up their opponents in an ambush. Stastias honed in on Sela, throwing her into the steps, causing her to go slamming right into them and tumbling over like a rag doll. HEIDI threw Crowthorne back into the apron and just went to town with knees and forearms while the referee chided both teams to get some kind of order underway and get inside the ring to start the match. Stastias hit a big scoop slam on Sela over the apron, right onto her spine then threw her into the ring. She stopped to mouth off about it, however, so when she crawled in for the pin, Sela kicked out. HEIDI got up on the apron, eventually but not before throwing Crowthorne over the barricade, into the audience where she wasn’t seen for much of the time. For several minutes, Sela was stuck in more or less a handicap tag match. Stastias got her licks in before tagging out to HEIDI and letting her go to work on Mevy’s block opponent for tomorrow. Mevy even dropped down to the floor and grabbed a microphone where she proceeded to walk around the ring and cut her own “commentary” as HEIDI wore Sela down. All of this was going on while Mevy didn’t notice Milisandre Crowthorne coming back into the fray. The wiry built woman slowly rising from behind the barricade and snapping her head up, flinging her dark hair out of her face with a look of eerie bloodlust in her eyes. Mevy had about enough time to get out an “Oh Sh--” as she turned around and spotted Crowthorne headed her way right before a superkick knocked the mic out of her hand and dropped her to the mat. Crowthorne got up on the apron just as Sela was starting to get some fight back into her and beat HEIDI off of her. The Underground Queen gave a much needed tag to the Priestess of Cthulhu. Here was an essential fresh, rested opponent against HEIDI who was beginning to slow down. Mevy started getting up, while Crowthorned worked HEIDI over with submissions and small joint manipulation before finally getting her twisted up into Grasp of Cthulhu but The Defect wasn’t having it and refused to give up. Mevy made it up onto the apron and was about to get into the ring to help her partner but Sela came in out of nowhere and hit a big boot to one of her legs, knocking her face down onto the apron and down to the floor. Stone faced with no sense of emotion in her eyes, Crowthorne transitioned into the Grip of Cthulhu, finally causing a screaming HEIDI to nod her head that she gave up.
That eerie music of Milisandre’s filled the arena as she fell to her knees and opened her arms, raising her face to the sky in a sort of worshipping posture. Sela Rica-Lark made it back into the ring, taking a knee beside her trusty and dangerous partner, hanging an arm of approval around her shoulders with her own telltale twisted grin.
Winners: Sela Rica-Lark & Milisandre Crowthorne
Prelim Tag Match #5.
Asian Persuasion draws with Cass Baumer & Dona Rotten
Fans probably expected this one to get ugly and...well...they were right! While everyone knew Maki and Angel were waiting for one of their blindside attacks, among those who expected it were Cass Baumer and Dona Rotten. The two marched down the ramp, motioning for the two GHB reps in NFW to, plain and simple, fucking bring it. Maki and Angel didn’t need to be told twice; the two left the ring and met Baumer and Dona at the foot of the ramp and the shots started flying. This was more than just a pre-match ringside brawl. Chairs started swinging and flying, Dona Rotten dug out a kendo stick and used Angel’s head like a fucking t-ball. Maki proceeded to bounce Cass’ head off of the barricade and the steps. Dona eventually splintered her kendo stick and went to set up a table. Big mistake as she turned around and Angel, bleeding like a stuck pig, kicked her in the midsection. She picked Dona up, bounced her spine off of the apron then powerbombed her right through the table before picking her up again and throwing her into the ring. Only then did Maki back off and get up on the apron. It never became a true one sided battle; both teams had their stretches of an advantage, tagging in and out with each other and mixing it up in all sorts of ways. It was evident, however, that traditional tag team rules weren’t going to control these four women and once again, the fight spilled out with all four onto the floor. This time it ended up as Dona vs Maki and Cass vs Angel. The two legal competitors weren’t even fighting each other anymore! The referee began his count but neither of the four women seemed to give a shit as, even when he reached the count of twenty and called for the bell, the two teams continued to fight out in the crowd and spill into the backstage area. They made it all the way to catering, shocking much of the other roster members there trying to enjoy a break before security poured in and pulled the four screaming, cussing women apart. Things like “Fuck the Filth Parade”, “GHB Worldwide”, and just flat out “C’mon Motherfucker” being yelled amongst the chaos. Someone, most likely Dona Rotten herself, yelled “Genocide these nuts” as the camera abruptly cut away back to ringside to begin the actual block matches.
Result: Double Countout
Jansen Myrrh v. Damon Cross
Damon Cross looked to continue his winning ways this match by starting out kicking Jansen in the stomach, then pulling her into a side headlock. Myrrh refused to quit or give up, instead she planted her feet and started to rock, managing to pull Cross up and over for an over the shoulder back drop. Cross was forced to let his hold go, and Myrrh set on the attack, with vicious kicks and stomping the downed Cross. Damon finally battled back to his feet and took the fight to the “Anti-Villain,” Cross methodically wore the woman down with a rolling neck snap, chained into a swinging neckbreaker. Soon Cross had a rear naked choke locked in, letting Jansen flail herself out, though Jansen got in a sneaky eye poke that freed her from the submission hold! Myrrh powerbomb Cross into the next county code, before picking him up and managing to toss the struggling Cross right over the top right. Jansen seemed content on a countout victory, but Damon was not a man to be stopped by such things and drug himself back in at the six count. The two fighters went rounds, Cross doing his damnest to wear Jansen down and Myrrh using every dirty trick to escape his submissions, or flip out of his moves before they did too much damage. Finally, Cross wore the Anti-Villain down enough to lock in Father's Sin. It left Jansen with no choice but to tap.
Winner: Damon Cross
Runa Olsen v. Super Tiger
Super Tiger is ALL sorts of fired up for this, looking to score more points. The fans share her enthusiasm but obviously figure given Runa’s track record and the roll Super Tiger is on that it would be a squash. Right and wrong, if only because Tiggy is the sweetest human in most of history and always does her best to make everyone she worked with look like a goddamn shining star. The match starts with Runa throwing hands, backing Tiggy into the corner for a DDT. A game Tiggy sells the hell out of it, flopping before she rolls to her feet and slowly approaches Runa again. Runa snaps off a series of moves, laying ST out with a backbreaker that turns into a german suplex, that turns into two germans, then a belly to belly slam! Super Tiger took all of the punishment that Olsen could dish out like a champ! Soon though, she was back on her feet and back on that Super Tiger Express! Runa couldn’t stop the Dragon Screw that Tiggy launched her with, and Tiggy rolled across the ring, popping up just in time enough to catch a dazed Olsen with a backstabber! That got expertly chained into a Dragon Suplex from Tiggy! But Runa kicked out! Olsen fought back with a clothesline that rocked Tiggy, and chained it into a hiptoss into the corner. Runa followed with a running knee that Tiggy again sold it was going out of style. However, when Olsen tried to pull ST back from the turnbuckle to slam her into it, Tiggy instead walked up the turnbuckle and floated over Runa, hitting the Superchick! (The Shiranui). In tribute to her current tag partner and mentor FM Young! Tiggy covers and picks up the win!
Winner: Super Tiger
Lluvia Cane v. Graham Baker
The match started with both competitors already in a very game lock up, Cane threw kicks to get Baker over to throw him down with a snapmare, then she hefted him up for a snapmare driver! Graham doesn’t stay down long, he got up and hit a series of arm strikes, then threw Cane into a sit-out powerbomb that shook her fillings out, if she had any. Baker started in with those vicious, painful chops, throwing in a kick every couple of chops, obviously setting to wear Cane down. Lluvia endured though, remarkably well, coming back with her own set of kicks, then a knee drop bulldog, and then she started targeting Baker’s leg. She wrapped him up in a figure four, but Baker drug her to the ropes, painstakingly clawing at it. Once the hold was broke, Graham used the rope to throw a lifting knee that took Cane off of her feet, he armdraged Cane up into a Samoan Driver. Baker went for his What Goes Around, but Cane fought out of it. Instead she hit an Alabama Slam on Baker. It went from there, Baker and Cane trading moves and blows, one or the other getting the upper hand. One near fall for Baker, two for Cane, near one really able to put one over one the other. It’s a true contest of technicians until Cane started wearing Baker's leg down again, with a Boston crab that he fought out of it but the damage was done. Baker gets the upper hand and his leg gives out on him, allowed Lluvia to hit him with Empress of Thunder! That keeps the Guillotine down long enough for Cane to climb to the top rope for Your Horizon! That netted Cane the three count!
Winner: Lluvia Cane
Layla Diaz v. Jenn Drew
The match opens on Jenn Drew and Layla Diaz colliding in the air as both women had attempted to leap off the ropes at each other. It’s a car crash of bodies right at the start of the match! Layla got to her feet first, but when she came for Drew, all the Second City Riot Squad girl got was a foot to the chin! Jenn mule kicked Layla back onto her back and jumped up to get a rope boost for a boosted knee drop! Jenn rolled to her feet and came back with a standing spanish fly! Then a standing moonsault! When Jenn rolled up again, Layla kicked the legs out from under her. Layla arm dragged Drew over and set her up for a Satellite ddt, Jenn was tossing tweety birds when Diaz Tilt a whirl headscissors’d her back across the ring! Thoroughly done with being thrown around, Drew brought it right to the tag team champ, chaining together various ariel moves, her own hurricanrana, a Meteora when Layla made the mistake of letting her get to the toprope. A flying body press that almost brought Diaz down, before she showed exactly why she was one of the tag team champs! Diaz catches Drew and rolls through the body press, starting on her own wrecking ball of momentum going right back to whipping Jenn around the ring, with hiptosses and slams, throwing in a tilt a whirl DDT and a spinning backbreaker. Try as she might, Drew can’t build another streak, everytime she gets a move in, managed to kick her out of a cover, or a hold, she’s stopped again by Diaz. It culminates in Diaz finally hitting the Southside Cutta for the three count!
Winner: Layla Diaz
Griffin Hawkins v. Ronnie North
Griff and Ronnie both rocked up ready to rumble, Ronnie called for a test of strength and Hawkins obliged him. Ronnie won the lock, backing Griff into the ropes and bouncing him off, using that to pop Griff up for an inverted Atomic Drop! Griff flopped over and writhed around. Again Ronnie used the ropes to pop himself up this time and get the big knee drop! Griff kips up before Ronnie can pull anything else, Hawkins’ air guitared for the fans, just before dropping North with a bombastic Enziguri! That transitioned into a standing moonsault and a pin attempt that Ronnie kicked out of at one! It comes to the Jukebox Hero and the Prince of Pleasure going move for move with each other, Ronnie would pull off a snap suplex, and Griff would come right back with a standing shooting star press. That’s some athleticism from Hawkins, but both men were working overtime to put on a show. The match eventually stopped for a dance break! With Griff taking a moment to air guitar and head bang for his fans, with Ronnie North grinding the ropes, thrusting his hips and waggling around the ring. The fans were going nuts, but North tried to take advantage of the distraction with a superkick! Hawkins caught his foot and reeled him for a lariat takedown! From there Griffin takes advantage of North being down to do a Breakdance Leg Drop! When Griff tried to come off the ropes for another move to capitalize, Ronnie moved! The moment allowed him to hit a Tombstone shoulderbreaker! North got a two count, but Hawkins wasn’t done yet. Hawkins battled his way back into the fight, with a series of strong strikes and an atomic drop of his own as payback! The end came when Griffin showed Ronnie what a superkick was supposed to look like, hitting a textbook Shot in the Dark! Hawkins covers for the three!
