1.) Alex Wright defeated Hector Guerrero
2.) Hugh Morrus defeated Villano IV
3.) Jim Powers & Bobby Walker defeated Bill Payne & Butch Long
4.) Syxx defeated Hector Garza

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) Guerrero is ready for a fight with Wright causing Wright to backoff. Wright arm drags Guerrero to start the match and taunts the crowd. Guerrero snapmares Wright to the mat and Wright goes to the corner complaining of a hair pull. Guerrero gets taken down to the mat by his hair and goes after Wright in the corner, but Wright hides under the ropes. Wright eye rakes Guerrero and delivers a few strikes in the corner. Wright continues with an uppercut in the corner. Guerrero backdrops Wright and dropkicks Wright to the floor. Guerrero hits a slingshot crossbody to the floor. Guerrero continues with an uppercut before returning to the ring. Wright takes Guerrero down and delivers an elbow drop to the back. Wright backdrops Guerrero and delivers a few uppercuts. Wright leaps off the top and is met with a strike to the midsection. Guerrero takes Wright over with a snap suplex for a two count. Guerrero drops Wright with a forearm smash but misses a splash as Wright gets his knees up. Wright hits a German suplex for the win. (*1/4. The action was rather slow and uninteresting. Guerrero didn’t do a lot to keep my interest and Wright didn’t showcase his agility making the match slow and boring.)

2.) Syxx backs Garza into the corner to get out of a hammerlock with a back elbow strike. Garza avoids Syxx in the corner to deliver a running clothesline. Garza hits a springboard head scissors and arm drags Syxx to the floor. Garza fakes out a dive to the floor as Syxx regroups. Syxx shoulder rams Garza from the apron and misses a somersault attack. Syxx drops Garza with a standing spin kick. Syxx works over Garza with several kicks in the corner. Syxx hits the bronco buster in the corner. Syxx delivers a quick leg drop and a sit out scoop slam. Syxx goes to the top rope missing a somersault dive. Garza drops Syxx chest first to the mat and dropkicks Syxx to the floor. Garza goes to the top and takes Syxx out with a crossbody on the floor! Garza takes Syxx over with a snap suplex for a two count. Garza slams Syxx and misses a twisting moonsault. Syxx locks in the Buzzkiller and wins the match. (**1/4. I enjoyed this as Syxx looked good with his kicks and was bumping around for Garza. Garza displayed some good big spots off the top. Syxx gave Garza a lot of shine and the match was solid as a result.)

Final Thoughts:
The main event was fun and worth the watch of the show for me. Syxx makes any match worthwhile with his ability and Garza was a lot of fun this week.
