Jake then charges and Moose hides behind the ref, hits the stun gun and spear for the win. Moose defeated Cody Cousin Jake @ 5:50 via pin [**¾] This was a pretty good little hoss fight.

We go around the ring with Gabby Loren questioning Jake Crist. Jake talks about his work with Dave over the years, and how Dave idolizes him since he’s the golden draw. Having Dave’s support through the years was really important to him and has loved the ride with his brother. He’d be lost without Dave. He hates having to touch people, because it’s odd. He doesn’t even really making eye contact with people. He met his wife in high school, and they have been together for 18-years (married for 6). They keep it open & honest with each other. His wife (Nevaeh) loves wrestling and is in the business as well.

Jeff Hardy vs. Austin Aries: The crowd is soundly behind Aries. Lock up to begin, to the corner and Aries breaks clean. Jeff is not a good sport and shoves him away. Lock up, Aries works the arm and takes down Jeff. Jeff to his feet, off the ropes and Aries hangs onto the hold. Jeff escapes and slaps the piss out of Aries. Aries rolls to the ramp, and then enters back into the ring. Lock up, to the corner and Aries shoves Jeff away. Boot to the gut by Jeff, to the corner and Aries bounces off and to the mat. Side headlock takedown by Aries, Jeff tries to counter, he gets a head scissors, which we all know is a bad plan as Aries escapes, but misses the basement dropkick. Jeff takes Aries to the corner and lays the boots to him. To the other corner, reversal and Jeff to the apron. Shoulder block to Aries, rolls in but eats a basement dropkick from Aries. Aries hits a slingshot leg drop to Jeff, and then poses on the apron after taking a victory lap. Aries tells the ref to back Jeff off before he gets back into the ring.

Jeff Hardy defeated Champion Austin Aries @ 23:03 via pin [****] This was a great match at a time when Hardy could still go and everything Aries did was pretty much gold.

The Rascalz vs. Taurus & Dr. Wagner Jr, & Aerostar: I miss Dr. Wagner’s wacky hair extensions. This is lucha tag rules. They brawl at the bell, team AAA takes control and isolate and triple team Dez. They then work over Wentz, triple teaming him. They clear the ring, and then work over Trey. Wagner works a Romero special as Aerostar hits a double stomp. Post break and Dez fires up and starts making a comeback. The enziguri and dropkick follow on Aerostar, Wentz joins in and so does Trey as the Rascalz take control. They triple team Wagner, and cover for 2.

Taurus follows with a German, Aerostar hits a slingshot splash and Trey makes the save. Wentz flies in with a knee strike, it breaks down and cutter by Aerostar and that gets 2. Trey hits Cheeky nandos, and a 619. Meteora follows and the push-sault finishes Aerostar. The Rascalz defeated Taurus & Dr. Wagner Jr, & Aerostar @ 9:50 via pin [***] This was a good and fun trios match.
