Like Collision, Battle of the Belts aired live from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, TN.

Orange Cassidy vs. John Silver

The show started with FTR and the Blackpool Combat Club still in the ring as Orange Cassidy’s music hit, and he made his way to the ring for the first title match at Battle of the Belts. Moxley shoulder-checked Orange Cassidy as they passed each other. He gave Cassidy a shove as the other members of the BCC stepped between him and Orange. 

Once the match started, Cassidy was overpowered by John Silver early. While on the second rope, he threw Cassidy to the outside of the ring onto the apron in a move that looked quite painful. Silver picked Cassidy up from the ground and tossed him with a huge biel. While Silver had the ref, Alex Reynolds ran over and kicked Cassidy. 

When the show returned from a commercial break, Orange Cassidy hit his kicks on Silver and followed up with a Beach Break for a near fall. Cassidy went for an Orange Punch, but Alex Reynolds managed to hit him with the TNT title, giving Silver a near fall. Shortly after, Orange Cassidy recovered and landed an Orange Punch on Silver to retain his belt.

Andrade El Idolo and CJ Perry

While attempting to do an interview with Lexi, CJ Perry walked in and said that with the right guidance, he could be a star. Andrade seemed interested. She’s going from Andretti to Andrade.
