The show begins with a recap of Contra Unit’s attacks on the Lucha Brothers, Low Ki and MLW World Heavyweight Champion Tom Lawlor. Rich Bocchini and Jim Cornette welcome viewers to the show and preview the lineup.
Myron Reed vs. Gringo Loco
Reed and Loco shove each other before Reed takes Loco down with a dive to the outside. Loco hits a standing moonsault and continues to showcase his athleticism. Reed nails a slingshot leg drop for a near fall. Loco goes for a moonsault but Reed counters it. A powerbomb gets Loco a near fall and Reed barely kicks out after a Falcon Arrow off the top rope. Reed hits a springboard 450 splash for another two count.
Reed nearly wins by using the ropes for leverage during a pin attempt. He argues with the referee and Loco capitalizes by planting the loudmouth with a piledriver for the win.
Winner: Gringo Loco
After the match, Reed blasts Loco using a pair of brass knuckles.
Backstage, Salina de la Renta announces that she’ll be running a second show on June 15.
Tom Lawlor was scheduled to have an interview but he’s nowhere to be found.
MLW National Openweight Championship: Brian Pillman Jr. vs. Alexander Hammerstone (with the Dynasty)
Both men lock up and vie for the upper hand. Pillman chops Hammerstone and unleashes a flurry of offense until the big man kicks him in the face. Pillman hits a dropkick that sends Hammerstone off the apron and follows it up with a dive to the outside. Hammerstone slams Pillman into the barricade and powerbombs him on the apron. He locks in an abdominal stretch and nails a clothesline. Pillman gets whipped into the corner twice but he drops Hammerstone with a superkick for a near fall.
A crossbody off the top nearly gets Pillman the win. Hammerstone pins Pillman after the Nightmare Pendulum.
Winner and new MLW National Openweight Champion: Alexander Hammerstone
After the match, the new champion said the title isn’t just his destiny; it’s Dynasty.
