11.) Special Challenge Match: Kenny King beats Chris Hero with a jackknife cradle…and gets a beatdown for his efforts at the hands of the Kings of Wrestling. Security came out but didn’t end up being much help. El Generico and Colt Cabana made the save. Generico fistbumps Rhett and King!
That’s all for tonight!
Apparently some stuff had to be cut from tonights card due to the long technical malfunction intermission prior to the show.
