KC and Aramis get the momentum back in their favor! They hoist up Microman to the top and he leaps to the outside onto MAN! Aramis and KC follow suit!

Back in the ring, KC and MAN trade shots. MAN hits a big dropkick before a gutwrench slam and Lionsault for a near fall, but it’s Microman who breaks up the count!

He sizes up Abismo and nails a headscissors. Abismo does catch him and sets Microman up on the turnbuckle. Microman headbutts him and hits a rolling senton. He follows that up with a spinning armdrag before Microman plays interference. Gangrel grabs hold of Microman and Arez hits an intense backbreaker on Microman. 

Aramis finds the opportunity to go against his long-standing rival and shuts down Arez’s offense.

Microman soon finds his swing with an assisted tower of doom before nailing a facebuster on Arez! He then deceives his opponents on the apron with a fake-out and hits a double head scissors to Arez and Abismo.

In the ring, Gino grabs hold of Aramis’ mask and turns it to the side of his face. Gino hits a reverse TKO and gets the pinfall.

WINNERS: Microman, Aramis, and KC Navarro

Post-match, Gino Medina is clearly frustrated from still losing to Microman and rips the mask off of Aramis! Thankfully for the luchadore, he’s able to cover up at the move of utter disrespect.

Jacob Fatu vs. Mads Krugger vs. Alex Hammerstone (c)

The Mercenary Monster and the Samoan Werewolf go at it, but Mads punctuates his presence with a big time spinebuster. Mads takes the flag of CONTRA and chokes Fatu with it. Hammer gets in the ring and bicycle kicks Mads down. He and Fatu look at one another and they both boot Mads down big time!

Fatu goes for a Samoan Drop after Hammer attempts a Nightmare Pendulum, but it’s Hammer who nails a belly to belly! Fatu fires back with his patented handspring moonsault for a near fall. Krugger finds the perfect moment to double chokeslam his foes. This also opens him up for a top rope tope to both Hammer and Fatu.

Krugger takes Fatu out on the outside before setting his sights on Hammerstone. He slams the champion down with a face-first chokeslam! Krugger doesn’t relent and slams Hammer’s head off the canvas repeatedly. Another slam causes Krugger to cover, but Hammerstone kicks out at one!

Hammerstone is fired up and charges Mads not once but twice into opposite corners! He powerslams Krugger down before he does the same to Fatu. Hammer is absolutely on a tear.

Krugger does catch Hammerstone up and it’s bad news for Alex as it’s an avalanche fallaway slam. Fatu takes the moment to leap on top of Krugger for a very near fall!

Shots are traded between Fatu and Krugger. As this CONTRA civil war wages, Hammerstone leaps off with a double shotgun dropkick! Hammer hits a TKO on Fatu (the same move he defeated him with), but Fatu gets a shoulder up at two.

Hammer looks to set up for a Nightmare Pendulum, but Fatu turns the tides for a Samoan Drop. Krugger comes in with a chair but Fatu smacks him with it. Fatu then has plans for that chair as he sets it up on Hammer in the corner. Fatu has another chair and turns it into a massive Van Terminator! He covers: 1-2-no!

As both Fatu and Hammer are down, Krugger comes in with his Baklei club! Hammer sees another club shot coming and Hammer cracks Krugger down under! He kicks Krugger down and then pulls out a ring board from under the apron. He brings it into the ring and props it in the corner. Krugger however, catches Hammer with his patented chokeslam neckbreaker. It’s only good for two. Hammer fights on but referee Frank Gastineau doesn’t as Mads nails him. Hammer hits Krugger and gets a clear three count on Krugger, but no one is there to make the count! In comes Holliday who nails a 2008 on Hammer! Fatu leaps off with a moonsault and covers Hammer. It’s now Hammer who is out but again, the ref is down! Fatu tries to bring Gastineau back to his senses and this allows Krugger to grab a chair. Fatu covers again, but Hammer kicks out. Fatu sees doom impending and spears Krugger through the ring board! Krugger comes to but so does Hammer. He catches Krugger with a Nightmare Pendulum! 1-2-3!

WINNER and STILL MLW World Champion: Alex Hammerstone
