TJP defeated Tyler Tirva @ 7:50 via pin [**½] This was a solid match and Tirva was given a lot in a chance to impress, but I felt that he came off as a bit too robotic at times, but not bad.

We go around the ring with Gabby interviewing Gail Kim. Gail talks about working with the knockouts behind the scenes and loves her post wrestling career and has closure. She talks about her final match with Tessa and says it was her last match. She puts over Tessa big and says she couldn’t have asked for a better last match. She’s almost 43 now and really happy right now. Gail loves still being in the business and traveling with her husband to see the world. She feels life for her is perfect right now.

Roode has AJ, AJ counters and hits the PELE! Clash try by AJ, but Roode counters, gets the tights and rolls up AJ for the win. Champion Bobby Roode defeated AJ Styles @ 19:40 via pin [***¼] The match was good, and effective for Roode’s title run, but the crowd wasn’t as into it as you would have expected and there were some wacky and awkward spot that the two usually don’t have, which also held it back.
