1. Lola Vice vs. Carlee Bright. Bright used her agility early to keep Vice on her toes. Vice dropped Bright with a shoulder block but Bright responded with a side headlock. Vice hit a spinebuster to take control and choked Bright with her foot in the corner. Vice applied the pressure on the neck of Bright as Bright fought through and applied a backslide for a near fall. Bright hit clotheslines on Vice and went for a springboard axe handle but was caught with a kick on the way down. Vice squashed Bright who was out, seated in the corner, and applied a leg scissors submission middle of the ring, for the tapout win.

3. Wren Sinclair vs. Sol Ruca. Sol Ruca is making her in-ring return from a long injury lay-off as the audience serenaded her with ‘welcome back’ chants. Ruca powered Sinclair up but Sinclair looked for a rollup but Ruca rolled through to a stalemate early. Looking for a knee strike, Ruca was caught by Sinclair but Ruca took Sinclair down to the mat with a side headlock to take control. Ruca avoided a clothesline from Sinclair but both women collided mid-ring. Sinclair applied a chinlock as Ruca looked to get back into the contest. Both women exchanged pinning combinations until Ruca dropped Sinclair with a kip-up dropkick followed by the wonderful ‘Sol Snatcher’ finisher for the win.

Sol Ruca defeated Wren Sinclair via pinfall in 6:07.
