Titus started to inflict punishment on Cole’s back. Cole briefly fought back, but Titus recovered and knocked Cole off his feet with a punch and a kick to his face.

Mei ducked a clothesline and followed it up with a kick to Mathers’s face, taking McKay off his feet with a lucha arm drag.
The Bang Bros entered the ring and cut off Mei’s momentum. Akki came to his partner’s aid and sent both members of the Bang Bros to the floor. The Bang Bros returned quickly and took out Wasted Youth with some tag team maneuvers. CPF hit a standing moonsault/shooting star press onto Mathews. Best Bros came back into the ring and they took out CPF fairly easily, but as they were celebrating, Wasted Youth returned, kicked them in the chest, and sent them to the floor. They isolated Joe Lando inside the ring with a flying forearm into the corner, followed by a back cracker moonsault that again only resulted in a two-count. Joe Lando was rocked by the moonsault as McKay’s knees hit him directly in the face. Wasted Youth took turns chopping Joe Lando, Mathers dumped Lando in the corner, and McKay did the same thing as the pace of the match slowed down. Wasted Youth kept tagging in and out as they continued to beat down Lando. Best Bros returned to the ring and started to beat up Lando as well. Mei chopped the very pale Lando, and Akki did the same, landing with a thudding blow. It was so loud it actually sounded good on the GCW audio. Akki hit Lando with a vicious backbreaker that again only resulted in a two-count.
Lando eventually fired up and made the tag to his partner. Akki had no idea that Davey was the legal man as he was hit with diamond dust followed by a step-up dive from Lando. The Bang Bros returned to the ring and hit Mathers with a lungblower into a senton atomico. The Bang Bros hit dueling 450s, but Mathers and Akki got their knees up at the last second.

Best Bros sent everyone to the floor, Akki went to the top rope, and Mei climbed on his back as they hit an avalanche piggyback onto the pile of competitors on the floor. Lando was on the top rope waiting as Mathers went for a dive of his own but was caught. Lando took that chance to hit a shooting star press onto everyone. McKay one-upped him as he hit a beautiful sky twister press to the floor.
