The Briscoes vs. Mike Bennett & Matt Hardy

Lots of "f*** you Hardy" and similar chants for Bennett to start out. Matt starts out in control until The Briscoes just stop caring about the rules and go after him two-on-one. Maria and Nick Searcy are at ringside. Apparently somebody broke a monitor as they are brawling around the announce table. Jay with two neckbreakers on Hardy; the crowd asks for it again, and he gives it to them. Bennett comes out of nowhere with the "iconic title" and forces a DQ finish. 

Winners: The Briscoes (via DQ) 

-The crowd starts chanting "bullshit" and Jay Briscoe says he agrees – that finish was bullshit. Nigel McGuinness comes out and says if they want to use belts, he can make that happen. He calls for the match to re-start, no disqualifications. 

No Disqualification Match
The Briscoes vs. Mike Bennett & Matt Hardy

The crowd goes insane at the announcement of the No DQ stipulation. The Briscoes start tossing half a dozen chairs into the ring. Jey beats the hell out of Hardy on the outside while Mark starts putting Bennett through chairs on the inside. Maria pulls a chair out of Mark's hands and Mike throws another one straight into his face. Matt has a ladder and the crowd goes even more nuts – "this is awesome" chant. Jay Briscoe suplexes Matt through the ladder in the ring. There's a table that was set up at some point in all of the chaos. Mark Briscoe does a "bang, bang!" as a tribute to Cactus Jack and runs the apron, leaping onto Matt Hardy. He goes for it again, but Bennett spears him into the apron. He sets Mark up for the piledriver on the apron, but Jey is back and they hit him with the Doomsday Device! Matt has Searcy's Peabody award – he nails Briscoe with it, but only gets a two-count. Searcy hits the ring, but the Briscoes stomp a mudhole in him. Mark with the Froggybow off the top rope on Searcy, which distracts them long enough for Hardy to hit a Twist of Fate on both guys. Bennett beats them with chairs while Hardy sets up a table and a ladder in the ring. Bennett ends up going through the table on the outside, thanks to Mark Briscoe. Matt Hardy climbs a huge ladder, but Mark Briscoe sprays a fire extinguisher on him! Jey Briscoe superplexes him 15 feet off the ladder, crashing through the table in the ring! He nails him with the Jay Driller, and this one is OVER! 

Winners: The Briscoes
