Match 4: Stevie Ray v. Hammer

Ray continues to punish him with some stomps and a scoop slam. Ray misses the elbow drop. Hammer gets in a little offense and is finished in short order.
Match 5: Prince Iaukea v. Juventud Guerrera
Prince pushes him against the ropes and chops him. They criss cross off the ropes and Juve is knocked down, and Juve strikes back with some chops. Juve runs into a forearm and is snapped over and hit with a legdrop to the back of the head and Prince gets a two count. Juve runs him into the corner and knocks him down, takes him down with a missile kick. But Iaukea comes back with a powerslam and stomps away. They end up fighting on the floor and get back into the ring where they fight continues and the Prince takes him down and applies a rear chinlock. Prince slams him and goes up top, and takes his time and jumps right into a foot and Juve is up and chops away. Juve sends him down with a hurracarana and they exchange roll ups and two count. Juve is sent over the top rope and to the floor. And now they brawl there and back in the ring. Juve has him but Rey comes in and causes Juve to lose as Prince flies off the top and then gets the win.
Rey makes sure that Juve sees him.
Match 6: Horace v. Wrath
Wrath starts strong but is clotheslined to the floor. He lands on his feet and pulls Horace out to the floor, but he is whipped into the railing. He blocks going into the steps and Horace eats them. Back in the ring Wrath picks him up and gets two after a side slam. Vincent is on the apron, so Wrath heads out after him. Horace comes out and grabs a chair and wallops Wrath in the back as he was solely focused on Vincent. Wrath is shoved back into the ring and Horace uses the ropes to try and pin him but he only gets two. Horace strikes with a Samoan Drop. Poses for the fans and heads up top, and misses the leap. Horace is up and misses the lariat but Wrath does not miss the shoulderblock, and he preps him for the Meltdown and hits it and it is over. Vincent runs in from behind and he too eats a Meltdown.
** A win but Wrath is going nowhere…..
