Prelim Tag Match #1.
The Queen’s Guard vs Thick Girls Club
Well, how else would anyone think this match was going to kick off? With Jansen Myrrh of TGC’s history with The Kingdom, the trash talking was evidently going to come and it did. Myrrh started off the match with Moe Renhuan in the ring but she was pointing and jawjacking at Lluvia Cane on the apron until Moe had heard enough and just blasted her with a cheap shot to the...well...the jaw! Duke called for the ref to do something but there wasn’t much he could do until Moe had Myrrh on the ropes and started the count. Myrrh flipped the tables off an Irish whip and leveled Moe with a back elbow and used her size and power to manhandle Moe around the ring before tagging Duke in to do the same. Moe got a hot tag in to Cane who turned things back around for The Kingdom for awhile but all in all, Thick Girls Club pulled out all stops with a tandem spiked piledriver on Lluvia Cane at the end of the match with Jansen getting the pinfall.
Winner: Thick Girls Club
Prelim Tag Match #2.
Runa Olsen & River Chance v. Fae High Court
Runa Olsen, at this point in the days of events, seemed almost desperate to make some kind of showing. Fae High Court’s Damon Cross was rolling undefeated in the tournament so he had an intimidating presence. The thing about this tag match, though was...how was it Tony Stark put it? “We have a Hulk”? Well, Cross had a Sugar Plum Faerie. Olsen had a River. Olsen started out in the match against Danni Anderson. Collision’s World Champion used her speed and lucha libre against the roster’s resident MD, combined with Damon Cross’ brutal technical work. Eventually, Olsen made her own tag and in came River like a human wrecking machine. For much of the ref’s count, warning the illegal team members to get out of the ring, River steam rolled around the mat, leveling Fae High Court with lariats and double axe handles. Danni came off the top turnbuckle for a Torpedo Plancha but River just snatched her out of the air and power slammed her into the mat. Violently. Damon Cross, the legal team member, began wearing Chance down with stiff chops and elbows and wrestling’s sweetest powerhouse looked to be on her last legs. Cross came in for a Yakuza Kick and Chance exploded up off of her knee with a European Uppercut that rocked him in the jaw and sent him bouncing into the ropes. As he stumbled back, she snatched him up into probably what was one of the nastiest looking Pommel Strikes she ever nailed somebody with and folded his legs up for the pinfall.
Winner: Runa Olsen & River Chance
Prelim Tag Match #3.
Layla Diaz & Jed Coffey v. FM Young & Super Tiger
This match was kind of an easy one to pair the competitors off with. Super Tiger and Layla Diaz - opponents for tomorrow’s block matches - started off and it immediately proved to be a draw with the crowd. Layla was renowned as a flyer and while Super Tiger specialized in Strong Style, she could fly too given her small size. It was an even back and forth battle with these two until Super Tiger began throwing in that Strong Style offense, rocking Diaz with nasty forearms and knees. Diaz wasted no time in tagging in big Jed Coffey. S.T knew she had to approach this one carefully but as she backed up to her corner to get some distance and take a minute, the bigger Tiger reached in and tagged her shoulder, telling her little friend she had this one. S.T agreed and hopped out onto the apron as FM Young entered the ring, damn near as tall as Jed was. And just as jacked. These two started off with a lockup, jarring for position. Coffey powered Young back with a shove but she immediately hit him with a backhand chop that knocked him flat on his ass and stared the big man down, awaiting his retort. To call what ensued afterwards a slugfest...or a slobber knocker...wouldn’t even do it justice. These two just flat out beat the shit out of each other. Relying on their power and grapple game to try and gain an advantage over the other. Eventually Layla and Jed moved to their sneaky style of tricks to keep things in their favor but Super Tiger and FM Young had evidently worked on their own tandem offense. One point in the match, FM picked Super Tiger up and...well, goddamn it, she THREW the little Japanese girl like an inanimate object at Jed Coffey and the little Joshi caught him with her legs, slinging him down into the ropes with a hurricanrana. She followed up with There And Back Again. She followed up with a springboard Shooting Star Press for the cover while FM Young came barreling in and knocked Diaz out of the ring with a lariat from hell that spilled them both to the floor while the referee counted three.
Winners: Super Tiger & FM Young
Prelim Tag Match #4.
Ronnie North & Akane Suzuki v. Graham Baker & Adrianna Salvatore
It was another instance of one upmanship between Baker and Salvatore in this match. At least the audience got some amusement out of the brutality as the two took turns decimating poor little Akane. Tonight’s topic seemed to be who could pull off the better lariat. Baker seemed to be gloating that one of his signatures was a lariat so of course his was better. Adrianna’s counter argument seemed to be, flat out, that she still had her U.S Title after Baker had challenged her for it and had even used his lariat on her. So it became a trade off: Baker delivered a Clean The Blade to Suzuki and Adrianna would call him over, demanding a tag so she could show him how it was done. She picked Akane up, feigned an Irish whip and hit her with a sick short arm lariat that knocked her inside out. Ronnie North sat there on the apron, comically cringing at how his tag partner was being dissected. This went on for a bit until Adrianna felt they’d done enough and she waved off Baker’s request for a tag. Instead she just posted up in the corner, setting up for the MOAB Launch but Baker reached over and just SLAPPED her hard on the shoulder. Tag! He got in the ring and the two started arguing over it. They didn’t see Akane dragging herself over to Ronnie to tag him in and as Adrianna got out of the ring, the Prince of Pleasure dashed over and pulled out a Sunset Rollup on Baker, pressing all of his weight down for the referee to make the three count. Baker sat up with a shocked look on his face as Ronnie celebrated. The Guillotine looked at Salvatore who just shrugged and seemed to be telling him he screwed it all up.
Winners: Ronnie North & Akane Suzuki
Prelim Tag Match #5.
Griffin Hawkins & Leo Cook v. Jenn Drew & Bellamy Parteabon
The final tag team of the night saw two of the teams that seemed to have the most natural chemistry between partners. Jenn Drew stood out on the apron while Bellamy Parteabon, wild yet methodical, danced around the ring against Leo Cook as the block competitors for tomorrow looked on. Bellamy did a pretty good job of keeping Cook isolated away from his corner before tagging Jenn Drew in to have a go at him. This opened up the rest of the ring to Cook due to Drew’s high flying style. She needed the wider space to maneuver around the ring and hit her moves off of the ropes. Consequently, this allowed Cook to get a tag out to Griffin Hawkins and now it was a spectacle between two aerial professionals. Jenn Drew was still apt to doing anything it took to score the advantage, however, and this turned things around for her and Bellamy again. Once more, Drew’s wild and eccentric partner came into the fray and put the boots to Griffin but a whip off the ropes cost her as he came off with a Rocket Kick right across the head. Jenn Drew hurried into the ring to intercept what she knew was coming but Leo Cook intercepted on his own with a dropkick as Griffin locked Bellamy up around the head and delivered the Seventh Star for the pinfall.
Winner: Griffin Hawkins & Leo Cook
Anton Crowley v. Cass Baumer
Both Cass and Anton came out here, trying to be the one to pull ahead in B Block as they were coming into this match tied right at the top with one another. The two of them battled each other back and forth throughout a lot of this match. Anton though did manage to have control of the match for a good portion. He used his striking ability to keep Cass on her heels, trying to find a way to fight back. For everything Anton hit though, Cass seemed to get back up and ask for more. Anton would find a way to hit The Fall on Cass and he thought the match was over, but Cass managed to roll a shoulder up at the very last moment to stay in the match. Anton would try to deliver ad stellam matutinam, but Cass was able to avoid it and she would deliver a headbutt to the nose of Anton that stunned him. She would follow it up with a chop block before hitting him with Bleeding Edge. She’d hook the leg, but Anton was able to kick out at the very last moment. Cass would look to follow up with The Fact Check, but Anton was able to counter out of it before he hit the ropes and delivered a clothesline from Hell. He’d then grab Cass and lock in The Mark. Cass screamed in pain and she attempted to make it to the ropes, but every time she got close, Anton would pull her back towards the middle of the ring. Cass though was refusing to give up and just as it looked like she was about to finally tap to the submission, the bell rang and it was announced that the match was a draw.
Emevlas Stastias v. Maki
As Emevlas made her entrance, she had a steel chair in hand. She walked out to the top of the ramp and unfolded the chair and just sat down. She looked at the crowd and referee and just gave them the “Up Yours” motion and yelled for the ref to ring the bell. The referee did ring the bell and then proceeded to count to twenty as Maki stood there confused and the bell had rang again and Maki was announced as the winner and Emvelas just stood up and walked back behind the curtain.
Minoru Tanahashi v. Sela Rica-Lark
Minoru and Sela came out next and these two were more than ready to give the fans some great in ring action after the last match and these two definitely delivered. Early on, Minoru had control of the match. He had Sela on the ropes as he delivered a dragon suplex which caused Sela to head to the outside to break up his momentum a little bit. Minoru though, was having none of that as he rolled out of the ring and followed after Sela who turned around and delivered a drop toe hold onto Minoru that drove him face first into the steps. Sela then took him and drove his head into the steps a couple of more times before she picked him up and she delivered a snap DDT right onto the floor. Sela laughed wickedly as she rolled him back into the ring. Sela then took Minoru and delivered Hurts So Good and Minoru barely kicked out of the move. Sela just picked him up and she went to lock in Playtime Over, but Minoru countered out of it and delivered Kabukicho Nights before he followed it up with The Black Lion Bomb, not once, but twice before hooking the legs of Sela and picking up the win.
Winner: Minoru Tanahashi
Morgan Payne v. Debby Haze
Morgan and Debby came out next and they showed a mark of respect for one another as they bumped fist before the match got underway. From there though, Morgan looked like a woman possessed early in the match. She used her striking and brawling to keep Debby off balance and grounded so she couldn’t use her speed and bring this match back into her favor. Morgan would go for a German Suplex, but Debby was able to land on her feet. She’d stumble back into the ropes and come off them and leaving her feet, she took Morgan down with a leaping clothesline. From there, Debby took over, using her speed to bring the match up in pace. Debby was able to deliver a tornado DDT to Morgan and followed it up with Disco Twist that got her a two count. Debby then climbed up to the top rope and she went for a double foot stomp, but as she was coming down, Morgan hopped up to her feet and delivered a rising knee strike that caught Debby right under the jaw. This staggered the woman before Morgan picked Debby up and delivered Dahntahn After Dahk and hooked the leg to pick up the win.
Winner: Morgan Payne
Remi Fontaine v. Angel Kash
In the final match of the night, Remi came out firing on all cylinders. This match looked like it was firmly in his control and that he was going to walk away with his first win in the block. He was looking dominant as he delivered a snap suplex before hitting Angel with a senton splash. He picked Angel up and delivered a brainbuster to her, but Angel was able to kick out at two. Remi would then try to deliver a German Suplex, but Angel grabbed the ref by the shirt and this caused enough of a distraction for her to bring up her leg and deliver a lowblow right to Remi and turn this match around in her favor. Angel would then deliver The Buyout and go for the cover, but Remi was able to get the shoulder up at the last moment. Angel threw a bit of a tantrum as she yelled at the ref. Angel though would then pick Remi up and deliver The Kashflow and she would finally hook the leg and pick up the win.
Winner: Angel Kash
