Orange Cassidy vs. Matt Hardy
Before the bell sounds, Matt and Orange exchange “deletes” and shin kicks. Matt sticks his hands in his pockets to pull out his big money. Orange rolls and kicks him to pocket a bill. Cassidy dives to the outside on Matt but Hardy catches him with a Side Effect. He rams OC’s head into the post before wrapping his body around the post. Matt goes in and takes a bow. Belly to back suplex. He does this several times before picking up his cash. Matt mocingly kicks OC before body slamming him down. He sends him into the adjacent corner and lays it in more. Matt hammer blows OC across the back via front chancery. Matt takes the bill out of Orange’s pocket. He receives “cheapskate” chants as he sends Orange into opposite corners. Orange leaps off top and goes for a Beach Break, but he can’t get him up. Matt goes for his Edge Bomb and nails it. Two count.
Matt readies for his Twist of Fate as Orange slowly gets up but OC rolls to the corner. Orange tosses Matt out. Tope. Back in the ring Orange hits a cross body before his signature twisting DDT. Two count. Matt is bleeding badly from the face. Hardy attempts a superplex and gets tossed off. Orange does a Swanton bomb with his hands in his pockets, before “deleting” Matt. He goes for a Twist of Fate, but Matt shoves him off. Matt nails his second rope elbow. Two count.
Matt goes for a TOF but Orange nails it instead. Two count. Orange goes for an Orange Punch, Matt ducks, Hardy goes for his Leech submission, but Orange pockets his hands and sits on top of Matt for the 1-2-3.
WINNER: Orange Cassidy
Malakai Black agrees with Arn. Brock is in over his head. He’s gonna give him a way out. He will willfully take a 10 count, apologize to “Mr. Black.” Brock will look at his dad and concede that he made a mistake and if anything goes different, he will take it out on Brock, Arn, Dustin and the entire Nightmare Family.
