Taz, Excalibur and Chris Jericho are on commentary from the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida.

** The action begins right away with The Hardys & Keith Lee taking on The Butcher, The Blade & Kip Sabian. Ethan Page, Brother Zay and Penelope Ford are all at ringside.

The conclusion of this fairly brief trios match comes with Matt Hardy hitting the Twist of Fate on the Butcher and the Blade. Keith Lee hits a powerbomb on Kip Sabian with one hand, and Jeff lands the Swanton Bomb for the pinfall.

** Backstage after the match, we see the Hardys telling the Young Bucks that they want back into tag team competition. Matt and Nick agree to a match with the Hardys on Dynamite.

** Anna Jay beats Skye Blue after a lot of interference from Angelo Parker and Matt Menard.

** We switch venues to Daily’s Place, Jacksonville, where Paul Wight and Tony Schiavone are hyping the main event. Schiavone explains that PAC is injured. Nevertheless, the Lucha Bros will take on the winners of the parking lot brawl without their Death Triangle ally.

** Swerve Strickland and AR Fox make short work of Tyshaun Perez & Logan Cruz. A cutter from Fox, a Brainbuster from Strickland, and a 450 splash from Fox put paid to Logan Cruz in an impressive outing for the new tag team, cheered on by Prince Nana.

** In a QTV segment, Johnny TV issues an open challenge to “whoever’s been on television.”

** We are back at Daily’s Place for the main event, with Paul Wight and Schiavone on commentary. It’s clear that this match will get quite a lot of time with more than 20 minutes of the show to go.

Jon Moxley & Claudio Castignoli are taking on Trent Beretta & Chuck Taylor in a parking lot brawl. The match can be won by pinfall or submission.

Trent Beretta and Moxley are both busted open in what seems like seconds as the competitors are thrown into cars, take shots from fenders, and are slammed with the hoods of vehicles.

Trent is left laying under the hood of a car as Moxley and Castagnoli throw Chuck Taylor onto it. Forks, street signs and safety railings all come into play in a brutal-looking and bloody encounter.

Chuck Taylor is seemingly taken out of the contest after being shut into a minivan, but the advantage is brief as he emerges with another street sign. Taylor manages to deliver a DDT onto Moxley on the hood of a car while Trent and Castagnoli brawl on the roof of another vehicle.

The momentum shifts again after Moxley delivers a Paradigm Shift onto Taylor on top of a car.

As the chaos continues, Moxley delivers a Death Rider to Trent into the windshield of a car. Chuck Taylor then siphons gasoline from a vehicle and sets fire to a barbed-wire covered plank.

He is foiled by Wheeler Yuta, his trainee, but Trent’s mom Sue arrives in her white Dodge minivan with Orange Cassidy to even the numbers.

Despite Cassidy’s arrival, the BCC are in control. Sue makes her escape and Moxley, Castagnoli and Yuta destroy her Dodge minivan with crowbars and railings.

Moxley curb-stomps Trent into the windshield of his mom’s van, and then Castagnoli pins him for the win.
