Sting goes in to see Dixie, who is willing to lift the ban on Sting getting a world title shot for tonight only. He can be in the gauntlet but has to start first. Sting leaves without saying yes or no. We get a recap of Abyss returning last week, leading to Bad Influence dressed up as Sherlock Holmes and Watson. They promise to solve the Abyss mystery and unveil the monster tonight.
Norv Fernum vs. Ethan Carter III
Bernum is the guy Carter squashed at BFG and weighs about 104lbs. Carter tosses him around to start before putting on a standing chinlock. Fernum comes back with some flying shoulder blocks but can’t knock Carter down. Norv scores with a missile dropkick but walks into the bulldog driver (which might be called the 1%) for the pin at 3:10.
Result: Ethan Carter III b. Norv Fernum – Bulldog driver (3:10)
Bobby Roode asks the doctor how Angle can be cleared in just a week. He wants Angle checked again. Bad Influence run into ODB and Eric, with the latter promising a surprise for them later.
Gauntlet Battle Royal
Sting starts out with Kazarian as this is over the top only with two minute time intervals. They start with a WOO off until Sting rams him into some top turnbuckles. A backdrop puts Kaz down and a suplex does the same. Kaz comes back with some shots to the ribs but can’t put him out in the corner. Knux is in at #3 and we take an early break. (Cont'd…)
