Without further ado:

 

Here we go...


Pre-Show Dark Matches:

 

Dimes defeats William Lutz. Dimes locks the arm, but Lutz gets in the ropes. He locks it up again, and again Lutz gets to the ropes. Lutz comes back and works the arm of Dimes, then hits a side slam off the ropes. He works over the arm some more. He goes for an elbow drop, but Dimes trips him and fires back. Lutz pokes the eyes and hits Dimes' arm. He goes for another side slam, but Dimes flips around and takes him down into an STF for the tapout.


SOCIAL MEDIA EXCLUSIVE: Cali Young defeats Nutty Nancy (w/Hayley Shadows). Nancy kicks Cali, then Cali ducks a clothesline and back elbow, and rolls her up in a crucifix pin for 2. She tries some more quick roll-ups for 2 also. Nancy comes back with right hands and splashes her in the corner. Hayley chokes Cali behind the ref's back. Cali comes back and locks in the armbreaker for the submission win.


SOCIAL MEDIA EXCLUSIVE: Big Zo defeats Chace Destiny. Chace attacks Zo as he tries to enter through the ropes, and Zo shoves him off repeatedly. Zo goes for a powerbomb, but Chace knocks him into the ropes. He goes to throw Zo into the corner, but Zo reverses and splashes him. He hits the cartwheel butt bump and back elbows. He finishes him off with the Zo bomb for the 3. Zo grabs a mic after the match and says that Jay Bradley is saying last week a fluke. He says Jay is big, bad, and tough, but the same things can be said about him. Anytime he wants a rematch, just know it will be like the last time, Zo time!
 

That concludes tonight's pre-show dark matches. I always recommend watching the episode first on TV or online before reading the rest of the report.
