– El Hijo del Fantasma def. Jake Crist with Dave Crist. After the match, Dave attacked Fantasma and Fantasma fought oVe off until Sami Callihan ran down with a baseball bat, laying out Fantasma. oVe unstrapped Fantasma’s mask to take it off but the lights went off and out came Pentagon Jr. to make the save. Pentagon cleared the ring of oVe and stared down Sami, who ran away to the back. Fantasma and Pentagon celebrated.
– Grado with Katarina Leigh vs. Eddie Edwards never begins as Eddie hits Grado with a kendo stick and threatens Katarina to leave the ring. Eddie says that he had Sami Callihan beat each other up, bloodied each other and he was finally going to kill Sami and end him once and for all, but Sami ruined it. Eddie also says that Sami has everyone fooled and he wants to expose him as a fraud. Eddie calls Tommy Dreamer, telling him to get his fat ass down to the ring. Dreamer comes out to be the voice of reason to the Edwards. Edwards asks Tommy if he would change anything he did. Tommy says that he’s a hypocrite. Eddie asks why Dreamer won’t let him end Sami and Tommy tells him to move on. Tommy says that Eddie and his wife Alisha haven’t talked in a week. Eddie asks Dreamer how he knows that. Dreamer is threatened. Eddie gets knocked down but Eddie comes back and canes Dreamer, then leaves.

KM says that this is all about KM. He calls Fallah to the ring. Fallah comes out with a piece of paper and says “bye bye” before leaving. KM reads the paper and it says, “KM you say you friend bah but you still act bully bah. You still need to grow up bah. You don’t fight I bah. You standby wrestler bah. Yes or no no no.” KM thinks his opponent is Richard Justice but out comes Scott Steiner instead.
