Luke Gallows pinned Drew McIntyre with the Gallows Pole in 8:41.
Rating: * ½

Drew McIntyre has been on a roll as of late, picking up victory among a number of roster members of the past weeks. Tonight, however, McIntyre may have overlooked Luke Gallows – who was looking for some positive momentum heading into End of the Line. Gallows, who also hasn’t had the best luck in single’s competition lately, found a way to pull off what many would call an upset over McIntyre tonight. The loss stops McIntyre’s rise dead in its tracks, and springs new life into Gallows going forward.

-Backstage, Brooke Barlow asks Nikki Bella about her in-ring performance since joining the PCW roster. Nikki says that she’s be lying to everyone if she didn’t say that she’s been lackluster at best since joining the roster. She says she needs something to put her back on the right track, and that a victory over Bayley tonight might just be what she’s looking for.

Nikki Bella defeated Bayley by DQ in 4:04.
Rating: * ¼

Nikki Bella came into this match, looking to pick up her first victory since September – a non-title affair with then-champion Bayley. Three months later, with circumstances a little different, both women found themselves in the ring again, both looking to stop their losing skids. Bayley held her own throughout this match, and was on the brink of putting Nikki away on a few occasions; however, after a failed pin attempt the frustration must have gotten to a boiling point, and Bayley pushed down the referee before walking out of the ring, eating a DQ loss.

-Backstage, Brooke Barlow asks David Otunga how he and Chris Hero have been able to coexist as a team knowing that this Sunday night, they will face each other for the Television Title. Otunga says that he and Hero have no personal animosity toward each other. He respects Chris and what he’s been able to do as Television Champion; and says he’s worked his way up and earned the chance to challenge for the title. It just so happens that his tag team partner is the one holding it.

Rating: ** ½

Six days away from having to defend the Tag Team Titles in a Gauntlet Match at End of the Line, The Bravados stepped into the ring with a team that has been dominate as of late, The A-List Knockouts. A lot of people questioned whether Hero and Otunga could co-exist tonight, knowing that they would be facing each other on Saturday night for the Television Title, but those questions were answered quickly, as there was no sign of dispute between the two. Hero connected with the Hero’s Welcome for the victory. After the match, two masked men jumped over the barricade and attacked Harlem and Lance. They laid out the Tag Team Champions before getting on the microphone and announcing that their identities would be revealed on Saturday night. The two men leave the ring as the show goes to commercials.

Commercial Break

Kazarian pinned The Great Khali with the Fade to Black in 5:06.
Rating: ¾*

Kazarian was looking to match his partner’s success from earlier tonight by picking up a victory, but he had to deal with one of the two biggest men on the roster in The Great Khali. In a match where he was giving up size and strength in bunches, Kazarian was able to use his speed to keep Khali off his feet, eventually hitting the Fade to Black for a shocking win.

-Backstage, Bobby Roode tells Brooke Barlow that it was obvious Wade Barrett was the weak link of their team last week, and the reason they lost the match. Brooke reminds Roode that he was the one that was pinned in the match. Roode says that would have been different had he not been forced to do what Barrett wasn’t able. Roode promises to take it out on Barrett on Saturday night.

[Bobby Roode interfered against Wade Barrett.]

It would appear that blaming Wade Barrett for their loss last week was not enough for Bobby Roode, who interrupted tonight’s main event by attacking Barrett from behind. Roode continued to work over Barrett but quickly rolled out of the ring as an upset Big Show headed his way. Roode and Barrett will meet up this Saturday night in what should be a very physical match-up.

Card rating: * 1/4
