Ethan Carter III vs DJZ

World Title Series Match – Block A

What a way to start off the show, with YOUR undefeated World Champion sans his belt that is rightfully his. It was Jeff Hardy that cost him the title and Matt Hardy that took advantage of his brother’s interference to hit Drew Galloway with the Twist of Fate. Carter would slap an injunction on the new Champion leading to the abeyance that created this tournament.

Carter takes DJZ to the ropes and when the hold is broken EC3 steals the Airhorn taunt! Carter sent to the corner and DJZ shows how to do it. They trade wristlocks and DJZ gets the shoulders down twice, then a backslide. Carter takes advantage, talking trash and tosses Zema up takes the dropkick coming down. Carter goes outside and Zema misses the slide. He tosses Z inside does Carter and this time Zema connects. High crossbody off the top and Figure Four no kicked off to the floor!

EC3 is distracting as TYRUS runs Zema over.

The countout begins as Carter slams the head of DJZ into the side, handful of mowhawk and making the man pay to the ringside fans. Carter battles off a flurry and sends Zema into the post. EC3 peels up Zema to send him inside, cover and a two.

Neck vice in as a sleeper suggested and Carter tosses the man down like nothing from the trap chinlock. Carter Splash misses and a kick then a MISSILE off the top! Zema rolls under the lariat and atomic drop, jawbreaker and hangman’s! Kick over the side, signature slingshot Tornado DDT thrown off but Zema gains the DDT anyway! Two Count Only!

ETHAN TO THE EYES! Carter eats the kick in the corner, caught in the rana and tossed! Zema for the Rana noooo! Ethan with the Sit Out Powerbomb! 1 PERCENTER!!

OFFICIAL RESULT: Ethan Carter III at 6:12

And with that EC3 moves on the Round of 8. Carter will face the winner of Bram versus Davey Richards.

Now we gotta talk about Gail Kim versus Tigre Uno, Knockouts Champ vs X-Division Champion. Gail Kim says now nothing is different from her competition and proving herself. She respects Uno but she is here to win it all. It will be Gail versus Uno, tonight.

Gail Kim vs Tigre Uno

World Title Series Match – Block C

Tigre Uno is here to take on Gail Kim and he gets taken over in a schoolgirl. Kim goes to the fans and she takes him over again! Uno doesn’t know how to react to almost losing, and she kicks him.
