Tessa got upset with Kross, and Moose tried to settle her down. Cage came down to attack Moose and gives Kross a German Suplex, but Kross no-sold it. Kross, Moose, and Tessa left. Cage helped Taya and Johnny up as the fans chanted “Option C!” Cage nodned to the crowd and left.

9. Moose beat Brian Cage by DQ. Eddie Edwards came down wearing a hospital gown and attacked Moose on the outside for the DQ. He hit him with slippers, a kendo stick, and more before Moose finally retreated.
The moronic turkey suit was brought down by the referees. Why they’re doing this I have no idea.
10. KM, Fallah Bahh, Kikutaro, Dezmond Xavier, and Alisha Edwards over Disco Inferno, Rohit Raju, Jake Crist, Eli Drake, and Katarina. All kinds of mayhem with Disco taking Steam Rollers from everyone, including Alisha and the young referee. Bahh pinned Disco with a Banzai Drop. Disco refused to put the Turkey Suit until Scarlett Boudreaux convinced him to do it because she “Likes A Man Who Doesn’t Take Himself So Seriously.” When he put it on, she sais he looked like an absolute idiot. Disco left, but KM told him to return and announced that it was Disco’s birthday. KM and Fallah sang “Happy Birthday.” Disco got upset and said he would leave if they have no gifts for him. KM said they all chipped in to get him this stupid turkey suit. Disco stomped off and took off the suit, and left to end the show.
