Prelim Tag Match #1.
Damon Cross & Danni Anderson v. Griffin Hawkins & Leo Cook
This tag team match was nothing short of spectacular. Both of these teams have been fantastic together throughout this entire tournament. Both teams showed tremendous teamwork in this match and neither team was really ever able too gain an advantage throughout it. Time and time again, it felt like just when it one team was about to put the other away, the other team would somehow battle back. Leo and Griffin delivered a beautiful double suplex onto Danni before Griffin was able to deliver Shot in the Dark to Damon and Leo took Danni and delivered The Leo Special and got the win for his team.
Winners: Griffin Hawkins and Leo Cook
Prelim Tag Match #2.
Jenn Drew & Bellamy Parteabon v. Ronnie North & Akane Suzuki
Jenn Drew looked like she was angry in this match. She didn’t even wait for the opening bell before she blasted Akane in the back of the head with a double axehandle. She then dumped Akane out to the floor and Bellamy joined her as the two began to work her over on the floor. Jenn though, she didn’t seem to care much about the win here and Bellamy just looked like she was having a blast as the two of them took turns just blasting Akane with forearms. Ronnie tried to step in, but he was given a double superkick by Jenn and Bellamy for his troubles. Jenn just looks at Bellamy and a sadistic grin came across her face. She pulled Akane up and tossed her into the ring. Bellamy searched under the ring as Jenn got inside and she pulled out two steel chairs and tossed them into Jenn. Jenn grabbed one and Bellamy slid in and grabbed the other before they picked Akane up and just swung for the fences and delivered a conchairto to Akane and the referee had no choice but to call for the bell as the two of them just laughed and slid out of the ring.
Winners: Ronnie North and Akane Suzuki
Prelim Tag Match #3.
Layla Diaz & Jed Coffey v. Graham Baker & Adrianna Salvatore
Graham and Adrianna once again, didn’t seem to be completely on the same page in this match. The two of them, from the very beginning argued over who would start the match. While they were arguing, Layla and Jed took the opportunity to get the early advantage as Layla delivered a chop block to Graham and Jed delivered a leaping forearm smash to Adrianna that dropped her to the floor. From there, Layla and Jed would work over Graham. They would keep him isolated for a good chunk of this match, but Layla would go for the Southside Cutta, but Graham pushed her off of him and delivered a discus lariat that sent the woman inside out. Both Layla and Graham were able to make tags to their partners and Adrianna just started cleaning house. She would eventually deliver a MOAB launcher to both Layla and Jed before she hit Jed with Ground Zero and picked up the win for her team.
Winners: Adrianna Salvatore and Graham Baker
Prelim Tag Match #4.
Super Tiger & FM Young v. The Queen’s Guard
This match started off with a friendly handshake from the two teams before the action really took off. Super Tiger and Moe started things off and the two of them were just on fire. The crowd was perfectly split as the two of them went toe to toe with one another. Both Tiger and Moe went for a dropkick and both kipped up and stared each other down as the crowd just applauded the two of them. Both would tag in their partners and that was when things picked up a little more in the intensity department. Both FM and Lluvia refused to back down from one another, taking the best the other had to offer at them. Finally though, FM was able to get the upper hand and by the end of the match, she tagged in Super Tiger and she delivered There and Back Again onto Moe after a drop toe hold by FM before she got back into the ring and delivered Starlight Express onto Lluvia and she bridged up to get the win.
Winners: Super Tiger and FM Young
Prelim Tag Match #5.
Jansen Myrrh & Teresa Duke v. Runa Olsen & River Chance
The Thick Girls Club as Jansen and Teresa were now calling themselves looked incredibly strong as a team in this match. Runa, who hasn’t been able to really get rolling much in the tournament itself or in the tag team matches was once again the target of the opposing team. Jansen and Teresa worked well, keeping Runa isolated and away from her corner. Runa though was able to eventually deliver a satellite DDT on Teresa and find her way to her corner. River came into the match much to the delight of the crowd as she just began clearing house. She hit the ropes and delivered a massive shoulder tackle on Jansen and sent her out of the ring. River continued to dominate on her own as she eventually delivered the Pommel Strike on Teresa, but Jansen dove in at the last second to make the save. Jansen pulled Teresa over to her corner and tagged back in as she picked River up and deliver the Myrrh-driver on her and hook the leg to pick up the win.
Winners: The Thick Girls Club
Remi Fontaine v. Anton Crowley
In a match that many figured wouldn’t be much of a contest, Anton Crowley and Remi Fontaine pleasantly shocked the crowd in attendance with a strong match between the new signee and the head of House Crowley. Remi got in good offense on the veteran, with a mixture of strikes, holds, and drops, but as the match wore on and Fontaine started to slow, Anton stayed steady. Eventually he took back control of the match, and once that happened, Remi couldn’t seem to get back on his feet. To put an exclamation point on the opening contest of the evening, Anton hit Remi with AD STELLAM MATUTINAM, flooring Fontaine long enough for the Demon Prince to pick up the victory via pinfall.
Winner: Anton Crowley
Angel Kash v. Morgan Payne
After their tag match yesterday, Morgan Payne has a fire in her eyes as the bell rings. She rushes across the ring, and Angel attempts to lean through the top and middle ropes to have the ref call Payne off, but it doesn’t work. Morgan grabs Angel by the wrist, yanking her forward, face first into the rope. Kash yelps in surprise and pain as she crumples to the mat. Payne reaches down to pull Angel to her feet, but the referee steps between them, backing Morgan off. The Pittsburgh native is visibly frustrated, but she acquiesces to the referee, standing back a couple of steps. Kash gets to her feet, and Morgan is in her face immediately, but the referee slips in between them again, and Angel takes the opportunity to rake her fingernails across Payne’s face. Morgan curses, loudly, as she puts a hand to her face, taking a step back, and Kash is on the offensive, launching a brutal slap across the face that floors Payne. Kash gets Morgan back to a vertical base, and continues with a stinging assault of various strikes, but eventually Payne gets out of it, sending Angel into the ropes. Kash catches herself on the rope, but that proves to be a poor decision when Morgan nearly disects her by following up with a brutal knee to the midsection. Angel stumbles away from the ropes, turning back toward Morgan. Payne fakes a strike, and Kash drops to her knees, arms up to shield her face. Morgan smirks before sending a hard kick into Angel’s ribs before dragging her back to her feet. Angel lashes out unexpectedly with a hard knife edged chop, but it connects with nothing but air as Morgan sidesteps and, quick as a flash, drives her fist into Kash’s liver. The Trillion Dollar Princess stumbles, but Morgan doesn’t let her fall. Payne lifts the blonde up onto her shoulders before unceremoniously dropping her with DAHNTAHN AFTER DAHK, allowing Morgan to finally get some retribution with a pinfall victory over Angel Kash.
Winner: Morgan Payne
Minoru Tanahashi v. Debby Haze
This match begins with a little bit of comedy, as Minoru challenges Debby to a dance off as soon as the bell rings. The crowd cheers loudly, with Debby nodding her head in approval. Debby goes first, hitting a few of her signature disco moves. Minoru is next, busting out some pretty slick Tokyo club dances of his own. The crowd is really behind it as the two go back and forth, the referee laughing helplessly. Finally, with a handshake, the real match begins. Unfortunately for Debby, Minoru is a much better wrestler than he is a dancer, and has had to wrestle half as much as Debby thanks to his tag partner, though it’s a solid match between the two throughout. A variety of techniques are shown between the two fan favorites, and both have the upperhand back and forth. Finally, Minoru pulls ahead, but just when it looks like Haze may have a comeback on deck, the Black Lion floors her with a vicious discus lariat before lifting her to her feet to deliver the BLACK LION BOMB to pick up the victory.
Winner: Minoru Tanahashi
Emevlas Stastias v. Sela Rica-Lark
Much like she’s been the rest of the tournament, Stastias proves to be just as annoying here on day twelve as she has been. Everytime Sela commits to a strategy, Emevlas counters with a quick stomp to the foot, or a back elbow, or even a thumb to the eye. The referee admonishes Stastias for that last one, and she nods, holding up both hands to acknowledge the official, and it’s at that moment Clark springs into action, taking advantage of her opponent being momentarily off guard. The Underground Queen unloads with a barrage of vicious knife-edged chops to the chest of her opponent. Emevlas isn’t out of it though, throwing a series of forearms right back. With Sela rocked from the forearms, Stastias hits the ropes, coming back to launch a jumping knee strike but Clark counters with a brutal spear! She rolls over and through, dragging Emevlas to her feet before executing JUST FOR FUN to pick up the pinfall victory.
Winner: Sela Rica-Lark
Cass Baumer v. Maki
To say that these two have a rivalry is a bit of an understatement. If you see Cass Baumer on social media, there’s an extremely high probability that Maki is commenting on what’s said, and it’s typically insulting. Bad blood runs freely between these two, and this match was no different. As soon as the bell rang, Baumer tried to get the jump on Maki by running in for a big boot, but Maki ducks the attempt. The painted woman hits the rebound coming back to level Baumer with a flying thrust kick. Maki is on top of Cass quickly, raining down pointed strikes, one of them actually catching the Kiwi on the eyebrow and splitting it. The possessed woman laughs evilly, but is cut short when Baumer slugs her straight up under the chin, rocking her back. Cass scampers out from underneath, and both women get to their feet. They clash once again in the middle of the ring, but this time Baumer kicks a leg out from under Maki before hitting the ropes to come back and deliver BLEEDING EDGE, the penalty kick splitting the demoness across the forehead. Cass gets Maki to her feet, but Maki throws a MAKIHOUSE KICK out of nowhere! Baumer manages to matrix evade the kick with a back bend before popping up to reposition Maki for the FACT CHECK! Cass covers Maki, and the referee counts to three!
Winner: Cass Baumer
