MANTEQUILLA vs. TREY MIGUEL vs. ACE AUSTIN vs. RICH SWANN vs. EVANDER JAMES vs. SMILEY
If Mantequilla is pinned, he loses the HOG Crown Jewel Championship, and if Rich Swann is pinned, he loses the Impact X-Division Championship. Lots of brawling to kick things off. Mantequilla hit a suicide dive to take out Austin, before having his chest caved in by a double foot stomp from Miguel. WIth everyone on the outside, Swann wowed with a soaring Swanton Bomb from the top turnbuckle, taking out all five opponents. Swann got the Lethal Injection and nearly snuck out the win, but Austin made the save. Smiley had a lot of unique offense throughout the match. Near the end he hit a rolling DDT and a very interesting rebound DDT that I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before. Austin had James beat with an excellent flurry of moves, but Swann came out of nowhere with the 450 splash to take advantage of his work and steal the pin.
Winner: Rich Swann
ANTHONY GANGONE vs. KEN BROADWAY vs. MOOSE
Moose gave the two locals the middle finger and walked out. He tried to surprise Broadway with a spear shortly after, looking to steal the match early, but he had it scouted and sent the big man to the floor. Gangone with a suicide dive to send him into the barricade, but he went for it a second time and Moose caught him out of the air, suplexing him on the floor. It basically turned into a singles match between the two HoG stars as after they lit up Moose a few more times, he walked out for good and never came back. Gangone picked up the win catching Broadway on the top rope, looking for what I thought was the Burning Hammer, but instead he just dropped him to the mat and drilled him with a kick.
Winner: Anthony Gangone
