– The returning Hernandez was disqualified against “The Blueprint” Matt Morgan.

Hernandez was on the warpath and tried to choke out Morgan and even tossed the referee, leading to the ref giving Morgan the win via disqualification. After the bout, Hernandez tried to get revenge on Morgan by nailing him with his boot against the guardrail on the outside of the ring (like Morgan injured Hernandez) but Morgan pulled the referee into the strike instead.
– In the violent and chaotic Monster’s Ball match, Abyss defeated Desmond Wolfe after Chelsea helped Abyss by tossing him brass knuckles. Chelsea originally accompanied Wolfe to the ring since her 30 days with Abyss were up, but she clearly has other ideas right now. In the end, Wolfe was yelling at Chelsea to give him her purse loaded with the brass knuckles, but her purse was empty. However, she instead gave it to Abyss, allowing “The Monster” to use it on Wolfe and hit the Black Hole Slam for the win!
– In an amazing match, Jay Lethal defeated “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles! Lethal injured AJ’s knee with the figure four leglock, which ended up gaining Lethal the advantage. Late in the bout, Styles tried to come off the turnbuckles with his injured knee, but it gave out on him and Lethal caught him with a suplex for the big win. After the bout, Kazarian came out while Flair was yelling at Styles for losing. Flair left the arena with Kazarian, while AJ nursed his knee in the ring.
– The team of “The Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy and Mr. Anderson beat Beer Money. In the end, Beer Money had Anderson set up for their DWI finisher, but Hardy made the save. Anderson then hit Roode with his Mic Check finisher for the victory! After the bout, both Anderson and Hardy declared each other the winner.
– In the main event for the World Heavyweight Championship, Rob Van Dam retained the gold against Sting! In the end, after the referee got knocked out, Sting attempted to use his black bat on RVD, but Jeff Jarrett came out to make the save! Jarrett used the bat on Sting, allowing Van Dam to get the upper hand. RVD and Sting traded high-impact moves, but RVD hit the Frog Splash for the win and the victory!
