– Kelly Kincaid was backstage with Sol Ruca, asking her about tonight’s match with Elektra Lopez. She talked about work ethic and how Lopez is an amazing talent, but Ruca prepares in a different way, so she will be the one to turn Elektra’s world upside down.

– Elektra Lopez defeated Sol Ruca. Ruca is fun and is developing a fanbase, also improving in the ring. Lopez controlled most of the match. Ruca hit kicks and a shoulder tackle, then a nice dropkick. Ruca swept the leg and tried for a standing moonsault but Lopez got her knees up. Lopez followed up with the sit-out powerbomb for the pin to win.

– Andre Chase and Bodhi Hayward defeated Lucien Price and Bronco Nima. The Chase University team had Thea Hail at ringside. This was the WWE debut for Price and Nima. Chase U continues to be over with the WWE Performance Center crowd. Nima and Price held their own and there was good back & forth offense in the match. Chase got a hot tag and delivered the boot and crossbody from the corner, then the Chase U stomp. Hayward then came in and they hit the Fratliner for the win.
