3. Axiom vs. Scrypts. Scrypts landed on his feet avoiding a snapmare takedown from Axiom but Axiom hit a shoulder block which did take Scrypts to the mat. Scrypts attempted a springboard but Axiom caught Scrypts with a kick. Axiom looked to fly but Scrypts cut Axiom off with a modified crossbody.

Axiom attempted a top rope move but was pushed off by Scrypts who nailed a moonsault. Scrypts was caught by Axiom who hit a northern lights suplex into a kick. Scrypts avoided a finish and went to the top once more  but was hit in midair by a kick to the face by Axiom who quickly followed up with the running kick for the win.

Axiom defeated Scrypts via pinfall in 6:41. 

John’s Ramblings: The former ‘A-Kid’ was the highlight of this show as he picked up the win against the former ‘Reggie’ in an enjoyable main event this week. If you like the acrobatic cruiserweight style this is the match that is worth going out of your way to see this week. The other two matches were just okay.
