03:52AM GMT: The Rascalz def. Zayne, Carter & Christian in a 6-man tag team match. Enthralling match with a lot of high flying moves and spots that you’d expect from these guys. Alex Zayne certainly caught my eye from this one.

02:28AM GMT: Isaias Velazquez def. Tre Lamar via pinfall. ‘The Chicago Ace’ picks up the win, in a great match with a number of pinfall attempts and back and forth action. Both men shake hands after the match.
02:25AM GMT: Tre Lamar, the high-flyer, drops an elbow from the top rope, but the experience of Isaias he manages to get to the ropes to break the pinfall that followed.
