The Private Party hit the ring slowly, waiting for an opening. They’d choose to go after Jungle Boy, hitting stereo spin kicks to the head. S.C.U was next, going right after the Private Party. They’ve been on a 6-0 streak, and they’d take the fight to Bear Country before trying to take out Luchasaurus. Bear Country would go after Luchasarurs before Butcher took both of them out.
Death Triangle was next in, PAC & Fenix instantly upping the pace of the match before taking Blade & Quen out. SCU went after a lone Butcher, before they’d have to deal with Fenix.

Jungle Boy was alone for Jurassic Express, while SCU, Death Triangle and Dark Order stood tall. Daniels got taken out, and Reynolds took Jungle Boy to the apron, before being taken out.
PAC & Kazarian brawled until Kaz was thrown over the top rope, SCU was out. Fenix, PAC, Silver & Jungle Boy were all that’s left, and Silver was almost taken out, but with one hand stayed in this. Fenix missed a kick and almost fell to the floor, but saved himself.
Silver & PAC matched up and threw blows in the middle of the ring, Silver winning out with mid-kicks before taking a snap German Suplex. PAC sent silver over the top, and Fenix kicked him out. Death Triangle was united with Jungle Boy alone. He’d quickly take PAC out, and now there were two.
