The Pinnacle (MJF, Shawn Spears, Dax Harwood, Cash Wheeler & Wardlow) clashed with The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Santana, Ortiz & Jake Hager) in a Blood & Guts match. After the two teams battled for over 25 minutes, the conclusion of the match saw MJF holding Jericho near the edge of the cage. Sammy Guevara, who was standing near the entrance way was told by MJF to surrender or he would toss Jericho off the cage. Sammy agreed and stated that The Inner Circle surrendered. Jericho was still tossed off the cage.
