- Vic Joseph introduces Percy Watson who will be a new addition to the team going forward. Joseph says Nigel McGuinness will be away for the next two weeks, but will be back. Later tonight: Andrews vs. Gulak.
Kalisto vs. Akira Tozawa
Bit of a stalemate between both wrestlers. Tozawa with plenty of "Ah!" chants early on, finally gets Kalisto grounded, stomps away at his opponent in the corner. Kalisto tries to fire back, but is put down with a hard punch. Kalisto gets going, springboard attack, hurricanrana sending Tozawa's head to the mat. Tozawa recovers and heads up to the top rope, Kalisto stops him, hits a headbutt and lands a spanish fly. He bounced off the rope though instead of doing the usual jump.
Kalisto really getting in some offense now, charges in and Tozawa monkey flips him into the turnbuckles. Tozawa heads up to the top rope, Kalisto rolls out to the floor, Tozawa with a baseball slide, suicide dive, and a cannonball off the apron! Tozawa up again to the top for a cannonball senton, knees up by Kalisto. Multiple pin attempts, all two-counts. Kalisto hits a salida del sol for the 1-2-3.
