AOP have beaten TM61, American Alpha, The Revival and #DIY. Paul says when the Authors write their book of pain, Heavy Machinery won’t even make a footnote. They don’t match up. Out comes Heavy Machinery, ready for a fight. The teams come face to face, but Ellering pulls his guys back.

Raul Mendoza vs. The Velveteen Dream

You may remember Mendoza from the CWC last year. He lost in a fun first round match to The Brian Kendrick. They lock up, Dream takes him down and walks on his back. Dream hits a shoulder block and taunts. He gets rolled up for two. Dream shows off his athleticism before eating a running kick. Dream turns it around and talks trash before clobbering Mendoza. Mendoza fights back with strikes of his own but his quickness backfires when Dream nails a flapjack. Dream hits a cartwheel death valley driver and then the diving elbow for the victory.

Winner: The Velveteen Dream in 3:39

Last week’s stuff involving Hideo Itami and Oney Lorcan is shown. Itami hit several Go to Sleeps until Kassius Ohno ran out to calm him down. Ohno and Itami got into it. Kayla Braxton interviews Ohno about his friendship with Hideo. He doesn’t know where it stands but feels that he sunk to Hideo’s level last week. He knows that’s not who Hideo is, and he needs to get things right to clear his head. Ohno wants to lead by example and talked to William Regal, who gave him a match with Aleister Black next week. HEROES EVENTUALLY DIE EXPLODE!
