In the second hour of the show, Eddie Kingston and The Blackpool Combat Club faced off against Jericho Appreciation Society. They win, but at a cost. In the first hour, Danhausen teamed up with FTR to face Gunn Club and Max Caster. There was plenty of storytelling in the episode, too, as Billy Gunn seemed to pick Acclaimed over his own “Ass Boys.” Hour one also saw an interesting heel turn with Luchasaurus as he pledged allegiance to Christian Cage before winning a squash match against Serpentis. Jade Cargill also won the TBS Title against Leila Grey and battled Athena and Kris Statlander afterward. Orange Cassidy also got a win over Ethan Page.
