- First match of the night is a six man tag, with Michael Shane teaming up with the Backseat Boyz as they face off against Paul London, Jason Cross and Tony Mamaluke.

He goes for a Russian legsweep but Shane is able to block it, coming out of nowhere with Sweet Shane Music to pin Mamaluke at 12 minutes and 41 seconds.
- The Amazing Red takes on "Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels in the next match. The confidence of Daniels seemed to be running high going in, despite his recent loss to Curt Hennig, as he did not appear to consider this match in doubt. After 14 minutes and 17 seconds of action this had been proven not to be the case as Red had on multiple occasions came within inches of scoring a three count, including hitting the Code Red for a very near fall. The veteran however had a very deep bag of tricks and was able find a counter that would lead into his Last Rites finisher, earning another victory for the Fallen Angel
- Making his IWC debut, Teddy Hart wins over the majority of the audience from the first moment with a great display of high flying and technical wrestling abilities as he was able to go toe to toe with Super Dragon, managed by Don Callis on the outside. Although putting on a great showing, even getting a close two count after hitting the spectacular manoeuvre he calls the Stu Hart Special. In the end it was not enough to put a stop to Dragon's current path of destruction. Super Dragon scoring the pinfall victory at 13 minutes and 44 seconds with a Psycho Driver followed by the Curb Stomp.
- Chris Candido is out next along with his lovely valet Tammy Lynn Sytch, and tonight he will be competing against Low Ki in a singles match. Low Ki comes out breathing fire, looking to pick up his first IWC win and break a streak of questionable losses. Candido is on retreat from the opening bell, using stall tactics to try to mess with Ki's head. It takes over 5 minutes but following the first stiff kick to the chest that knocks Candido straight over and elicits a huge pop from the audience, things start to get more serious and instead Candido is retreating for his own safety, running to the outside and hiding behind Tammy at one point. Eventually he is trapped in the ring with his opponent and takes the full force of Low Ki's wrath with a series of hard kicks. Candido manages to get in an eye gouge and change the tides. He decides to grapple with Ki, deny him the distance he needs to throw more strikes. He drags him down with a headlock, trying to keep it on the mat. With the crowd cheering him on Ki fights out.

He goes for the cover but Tammy puts Candido's foot on the rope and yells at the referee to stop counting. Low Ki is pissed off, he turns to Tammy and she gets up on the apron and gives him a mouth full as well. The referee comes in between the two and is distracted by Tammy as Jerry Lynn runs out and hands Candido a pair of brass knuckles. Low Ki stops worrying about Tammy and turns his attention back to the match, leaving her blatantly distracting the referee, rubbing his face in her chest as Ki drags Candido back to his feet and goes to set up for a Ki Krusher. Candido, who was partially playing possum, levels Low Ki with a hard right hook using the brass knuckles, burying the evidence in his tights as he rolls on top to make the cover. Tammy drops her act, telling the referee to get over there and do his job and he makes the three count, giving Chris Candido the tainted victory at 14 minutes and 38 seconds of the match.
- AJ Styles was in singles action against Devon Storm w/ Daffney. The two men went back and forth, with the rookie Styles more than holding his own against the more experienced Storm.

AJ makes a comeback, hitting a Pele Kick out of nowhere and following with a spinning rack bomb for a two count. Daffney senses that her client is in danger of losing, climbing up on the apron. The referee has had enough, warning her twice then sending Daffney to the back to a loud cheer from the audience. She has a tantrum at ringside before security come out to move her along. All of this has caused somewhat of a distraction, leaving AJ with his back to his opponent. Devon Storm attempts to capitalize on this, setting AJ up for a reverse DDT. Styles struggles out, hitting Storm with a kick to the gut, followed by the Styles Clash to earn him the pinfall at 14 minutes and 52 seconds.
