Singles Match – Dominik Dijakovic vs. Johnny Gargano
Gargano got beaten down immediately, but faked a knee injury to give himself some space.

Dijak came back with a huge discus lariat, and after a back-and-forth brawl, hit an even bigger backbreaker for a nearfall. Candice LeRae came out to play distraction, and Dijak got thrown to the floor and caught with a tope suicida. After a commercial break, Gargano got caught trying to remove a turnbuckle pad and Dijak planted him with a chokeslam for two. They fought to the top rope and Dijak tried for a powerbomb, but Gargano sent him into the exposed corner with a hurricanrana, then rolled up the big man for three.
