Rating: 3/4*

Kurt Angle pinned Carlito after a moonsault in 0:09:55.
Rating: *** 1/4

Carlito had a tough challenge in front of him tonight, as he was making his singles debut against a very pissed off "Olympic Gold Medalist". Angle came in after a victory over CM Punk at "Turning Point" - which also saw Angle attacked by Tyler Black. Carlito gave Angle the best fight he could, and was able to kick out of the Ankle Lock, but the damage had already been done. After hitting the Angle Slam, Angle climbed to the top rope and hit a moonsault for the victory.

Brent Albright made Randy Orton submit to the Crowbar in 0:14:03.
Rating: *** 1/2

Brent Albright came into this match looking to extend his winning streak after defeating Cody Deaner last night at "Turning Point". Randy Orton was looking to change his fortunes after coming up short in his quest for the Heavyweight Title. Albright gained a quick advantage in the beginning, using his slight height advantage to his favor. He got a closer two-count after hitting a sidewalk slam, but Orton was able to get his foot on the rope. Orton was able to regain control after reversing a suplex outside the ring. However, just like at "Turning Point", Orton was unable to hit the RKO onto the concrete as Albright shoved him into the ringpost. Albright rolled Orton into the ring and connected with a pumphandle slam before locking in the Crowbar. Orton tried his best to reach the ropes, but ultimately tapped out, giving Albright the victory.

Beer Money, Inc. (James Storm and Robert Roode) defeated Tyler Black and CM Punk when R. Roode pinned Punk with the Payoff in 0:15:07.
Rating: ***

After trying to come to Punk's aid last night against Kurt Angle, Tyler Black was given the chance to team up with the "Straight Edge Superstar", facing off against the now-former Tag Team Champions. Black and Punk worked well as a team for a good portion of the match, but Beer Money was too focused on having someone pay for losing the titles just 24 hours before. KURT ANGLE appeared at the top of the ramp as Beer Money went hit the Payoff on Punk; distracted by Angle's appearance, Black was not able to break up the pinfall, giving Beer Money the victory.

Cheech defeated AJ Styles by countout in 0:12:04.
Rating: *** 1/2

Cheech found himself in the main event just 24 hours after defeating Kory Chavis in a Best of Three Falls Match at "Turning Point". AJ Styles was coming off match in which the Heavyweight Title was stolen from him - as he said afterwards. But, tonight, they faced each other in an explosive match. Midway through the match, Styles hit the Styles Clash and got the 1-2-3… but, Cheech was able to talk the referee into restarting the match, infuriating Styles. Styles then went out to send a message to Cheech, but was unable to do so as Cheech connected with a vicious DDT on the concrete outside the ring. He rolled back into the ring as Styles was counted out for the loss.
