– Oney Lorcan, Jack Gallagher, & Tony Nese vs. Ariya Daivari, Mike Bennett, & Drew Gulak @ 18:18 via pin [****]

– Follow all of my reviews at this link.

– Oney Lorcan, Jack Gallagher, & Tony Nese meet backstage and talk about tonight’s main event and how dangerous Drew Gulak has become. Nese plans to win back his title, and make fun of Kanellis, before putting his over as dangerous. Lorcan promises chaos and stitches for Daivari.

Tornado Tag Match: The Lucha House Party vs. The Singhs: Metalik & Dorado are in for the luchas tonight. The2y play to the crowd and brawl, spilling to the floor. The luchas take control as they pair off, and Metalik hits the lucha arm drag and missile dropkick. The luchas follow with double teams for 2. The Singhs make the comeback, cutting off Dorado but Dorado fights back and hits a moonsault press for 2. The luchas follow with double teams and the cover gets 2. Sunil cuts off Dorado on the floor, and then crotch Metalik up top. They follow with double teams, covering for 2. Dorado back in and gets taken out with a spin kick.

The V driver and ropewalk elbow and shooting star press finish it. The Lucha House Party defeated The Singhs @ 10:58 via pin [***] This was good but was all Lucha House Party as the Singhs continue to fail to impress overall with their limited heel act and limited in ring contributions.

– We get a Humberto Carroillo video package.

– Mike Kanellis is interviewed and is asked about his match last night on Raw and Maria’s pregnancy announcement. He’s asked about his emotional state and where is Maria. Mike talks about the emotional roller coaster but he is here on the orders of Drake Maverick. Maria will not be at ringside because they are not talking. It should have been the greatest moment of his life, but she told him in front of everyone that she was surprised he could get her pregnant. She called him a disappointment. Mike is disappointed in Drake because Drake has kept him from the Cruiserweight Title and he should be celebrating with his happy wife, instead Drake is celebrating somewhere with his happy wife. Drake will pay for what he did to his family, and Mike will prove to his wife that he really is man enough when he wins his match tonight.

Oney Lorcan, Jack Gallagher, & Tony Nese vs. Ariya Daivari, Mike Bennett, & Drew Gulak: Nese and Gulak begin… or not as Mike tags in. Gallagher joins him and we see Maria watching on. They lock up and work into counters, and Mike follows with a shoulder tackle.
