Jack Gallagher vs. Akira Tozawa

This was a hard-hitting, back-and-forth match that started off things on the right foot, to say the least. At one point, Gallagher dropped Tozawa face-first on the ring post, legit busting his head open.
Of course, that didn’t slow Tozawa down… he hit a diving headbutt through the ropes and to the floor a few minutes later. Again, these two threw some stiff shots during this match, and the match itself is worth seeking out if you missed it.
Tozawa got the win with his top-rope senton, but Kendrick accidentally knocked Gallagher’s leg off the ropes during the pinfall, so expect to see them run it back again soon.
Winner: Akira Tozawa
Humberto Carrillo & Lucha House Party vs. Ariya Daivari & The Singh Brothers
6-Man Tag Team Match

Gran Metalik was taken out backstage earlier in the night, so Humberto Carrillo filled in for him, which upset Lince Dorado. Dorado thought Carrillo had something to do with it, but he insisted that he didn’t.
Carrillo and the LHP were on the same page for this match, however, and if it wasn’t for some awkward moments with the referee, the trio probably would have gotten the win a lot quicker than they did.
Daivari left the Singh’s halfway into the match, which was the nail in the coffin for their team. Dorado and Carrillo kind of battled it out to see who would get the pinfall… Dorado won that battle.
Winner: Humberto Carrillo & Lucha House Party

Oney Lorcan came out of the gates guns blazing here, rocking the champion and sending him to the floor to regroup.
Lorcan actually landed his half-and-half suplex, which has won him matches, within the first few minutes of the match. Gulak rolled to the floor again after he hit it, though, so he couldn’t capitalize on it.
Lorcan decided to join him on the floor this time. He climbed to the top rope and landed a diving senton bomb to the floor, onto Gulak, which looked painful for everyone involved.
On the floor, the two men brawled, with Gulak coming out on top. He threw Lorcan throat-first into the announce desk, which was enough to give him the advantage for the next few minutes.
Lorcan did regain control, however, and actually hit another half-and-half, this time off the top rope! He took too long to make the cover, however, and Gulak kicked out at two.
After a bit more brawling, Gulak got the Gu-Lock in and Lorcan went to sleep a few moments later. In my humble opinion, this match was better than their SummerSlam match from Sunday and is very much worth checking out if you missed it.
