Chris Sabin vs. Sami Callihan
Sabin didn’t wait for the light to flicker back on during Sami’s entrance to dive onto Callihan. The two go into the ring, Sami powerbombs him and the bell rings for the match to officially begin. Sami starts off by slamming Sabin, but the momentum changes as Sabin hits a backslide driver from the apron. Callihan does catch Chris with a powerbomb against the ring post. The brawl continues on the outside until Sami thumbs the eyes of Sabin. Sami keeps the control back in the ring after that. He has a leg lock on Sabin, but he thankfully makes it to the ropes.
Sami sets Sabin up top and hits him with a few strikes. He goes for a superplex. Sabin fights back until Sami thumbs him in the eyes. Sabin however still changes the momentum with a tornado DDT in the opposite corner. Two count.
The two men go back and forth. Sami trips Sabin up for a camel clutch before curb stomping Chris. He nails the piledriver. 1-2-nope. Sami goes for a package piledriver, but Sabin wriggles free and gets a near fall. He enziguris Sami and then hits his Cradle Shock for the finish.
WINNER: Chris Sabin
Post-match, Moose comes out and tosses Sabin. He spears Sami. He throws in a chair and has a metal bat. Moose goes to replicate Sami’s bat actions with a chair and ironically, Eddie Edwards comes in to save Sami with a kendo stick.
Gia Miller asks Taylor Wilde about booking herself a three-on-one match. She says if they’re going to attack her from behind, she might as well face them head on.
After break, Gia is about to ask Eddie why he helped Sami and Callihan comes in to gloat a little about Eddie having a change of heart. Eddie makes clear that Sami helped him once, so he helped him…once and that’s it. They’re done. He walks off.
