Dudley addresses the crowd a second time. He talks about creating “history” with Edge & Christian and The Hardy Boyz. He reminds the crowd that he and Bubba Ray have won 24 world titles. He said that even though he performed in front of 100,000 people at WrestleMania, nothing compares to the intimacy of wrestling at small shows. He revealed that he is now a road agent for the WWE and he saw a lot of great talent on the show so far. He ended with an obligatory, “Oh, my brother…TESTIFY!”
Fun match. Dudley showed up in incredible shape. He laid on the ass kissing pretty thick during the second promo but overall it was fine.
Winners: Marion Fontaine & D-Von Dudley
Jack Pollock w/ Morgan Rockafeller
Remix Pro Riot Championship
No Countout/No Disqualification
Facade (w/ Dani) v. Jack Pollock (w/Morgan Rockafeller) (c)
Pollock starts by firing off some pretty punches. These two are evenly matched, but Pollock is dominating the bulk of the offense.
Facade springboards off a chair but eats a chair to the face from Pollock. This gets Pollock a two-count. Facade then does “Old School” into a coast-to-coast dropkick.
Dani speared Rockafeller. Pollock pulled Dani into the ring by her hair. He attempted to slam her but she DDT’d him. Facade sprung off the ropes and drove Pollock’s head into a chair resulting in a two-count. He then got a table from beneath the ring.
The tension is thick once the table is in the ring.
Pollock is roundhouse kicked through the table. The ref throws up the “X” sign. Pollock is hurt. Members of the locker room are out to check on Pollock. One of them sprays Facade in the eyes with some sort of aerosol. Pollock gets the pin to retain the title.
Great match. Very suspenseful. Everything surrounding the table spot was expertly executed. Rockafeller is a great second.
Winner: Jack Pollock
Remix Pro Tag Team Championship
The Anti-Heroes v. The Headless Horsemen (Gory & Matt Conard) (c)
The Headless Horsemen have a great entrance.
This is a by-the-numbers tag match. They did a cool “Tower of Doom” spot. Gory pinned. New tag champs. The Anti-Heroes then turned on each other.
This match did not work for me. The turn at the conclusion was confusing. People sitting both in front and behind me were trying to figure out the logic behind what was occurring. Plus, this match just felt really long.
Winners and NEW Remix Pro Tag Team Champions: The Anti-Heroes
Remix Pro Championship
Chance Prophet v. Ron Mathis (c)
The match begins with a wild brawl through the audience. They fight to the top of the bleachers on one side of the building and then the other. The tussle continues to the gym floor.
Finally, when they are in the ring Mathis attempts to put Prophet in the casket to no avail. When the situation is reversed, Mathis grabs Prophet’s…uh…”junk” to prevent the casket closing.

He returns to the ring and presents it to the new champion. Both men get a huge applause. Mathis asks for the microphone. He has the crowd chant “Remix Pro.” He puts over the promotion. He and Prophet hug to close the night.
This was a terrific “WWE Main Event Style” match. Tons of great brawling and near-falls. Mathis has leaned down in the last year or so. It is clear that he has been working his ass off to improve.
