1.) Ray Traylor defeated Mark Kyle
2.) Joey Maggs defeated Alex Porteau
3.) Yugi Nagata defeated David Sierra
4.) Chris Adams defeated Keith Northcutt
5.) Wrath defeated Hugh Morrus

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) Mark Kyle is better known as Killer Kyle from Smoky Mountain Wrestling days.

2.) Morrus backs Wrath into the corner and cleanly breaks away. Wrath works over Morrus with a few chops, but Morrus connects with a spinning heel kick. Morrus clotheslines Wrath over the top to the floor. Wrath returns with a boot to the gut and Morrus counters a suplex with a rollup for a two count. Morrus gets distracted by Vandenberg and Wrath connects with a bicycle kick. Wrath works over Morrus with chops in the corner followed by a kick to the midsection. Wrath sends Morrus into the corner and delivers a clothesline for a two count. Wrath keeps Morrus on the mat with a sleeper hold. Morrus elbows free and misses a wild right. Wrath connects with a back suplex for a two count. Morrus takes Wrath down with a swinging neckbreaker. Morrus punches Wrath a few times followed by a clothesline. Morrus takes Wrath over with a powerslam and signals for the end. Morrus gets distracted by Vandenberg allowing Mortis to kick Morrus from the apron. Wrath drops Morrus with the Death Penalty to win the match. (*1/2. Not a whole lot going on here and the finish was expected if Wrath was going to go over. I went into this hoping that Morrus would prevail.)

Final Thoughts:
A skippable show as there just wasn’t much here to enjoy.

Thanks for reading.
