We are down to two competitors.

Fatu charged but the referee in the ring was knocked out in a collision as the others were arguing outside with Kross.  That led to a great fakeout where it appeared NZO was going to win but Fatu slipped back in and Fatu came back to beat NZO and scored the win.

Your winner, Jacob Fatu!

That was a LONG match!  NZO was well cast as the big heel here since the audience wants to reject him already.  Kross was in for a long time.  Microman was the star of his early sequences.  Navarro took some big bumps.  Fatu was great.    Sami Callihan was a nice surprise. 

Fatu gave an impassioned speech after, thanking everyone for coming.  He said that he gave his everything in the match to be there and everyone in attendance gave their everything just by coming out.  He thanked them for supporting MLW.
