Skeeter Valentine vs. Scorpion 3.5/5
Skeeter was in control from the beginning of the match. Scorpion did manage to get in a few hits, including a Bloody Sunday, but I think it was clear from the first few seconds who would win. And as soon as I typed that, Scorpion pummeled Skeeter outside of the ring. Scorpion manages to pull the upset over one half of the current TMN Green Tag Team Champions. Scorpion then grabs a chair from underneath the stage, but Saitama jumps in the ring at the last second to scare off Scorpion.
I didn’t see this coming, I thought this would be a squash match. This just shows what I know. That is also a much-needed win for Scorpion. I think that spells a feud coming for the TMN Green Tag Team Championship.

Misty again breaks up another pin attempt by 18. Rey goes for a pin attempt, but it isn’t even a one-count. Rey tags in Misty and throws 18 face-first into the Gym Leader’s shoe. 18 then tags in Raven, who unleashes a punishing volley of moves on Misty.

It was a near fall, with Poison Ivy kicking out at 2 and ¾. Poison Ivy hot-tags Rey after getting hit with a DDT. Rey comes in hot, punishing Raven for what she did to Poison Ivy. Raven hits that face-buster onto Rey, then goes for the cover. It works because Misty hesitates, then misses the break-up!
My description of tag team moves doesn’t do this match justice. Also, there were a ton of tags done by the first team. Misty definitely carried her team. She was there for most pin attempts and even tried to take out 18. You can’t even blame her for this loss. Poison Ivy did next to nothing, and Rey managed to hold her own for most of the match.
Ryu Hayabusa vs. Doomfist (C)
(Hardcore Title Match): 3.75/5
Doomfist came out fists a blazing! He grabs a baseball bat and punishes a tired Ryu with it. Ryu then grabs it and hits Doomfist on the top of the head. Doomfist clotheslines Ryu right out of the ring. Doomfist then chucks Ryu into the metal corner of the ring. Doomfist goes for a cover outside of the ring, but it is only a one-count. Ryu manages to gain some momentum, as well as the bat. Doomfist takes control right back, though. Doomfist grabs the bat and hits Ryu again with it. Doomfist hits a Super Fist, but Ryu bounces out of the pin attempt. Doomfist hits a one-hand chokeslam, followed by another Super Fist. Doomfist covers him outside of the ring, this time getting the win and defending his Hardcore Title.
Steve summed it up pretty well, “The crowd just watching a homicide and cheering it on.” Ryu, you should have stayed home today. GG no RE.

There’s a segment where no one is in the ring. King finally throws Goku into the ring, which prompts three of the other wrestlers to jump in.

It was a hectic match! Five of the strongest competitors, and Voldemort, put their all into this match. I don’t think anyone could have called how this match would unfold. There was a lot of drama in this match, and there were times where everyone had a chance to win the briefcase.

Get out your brooms because Jin swept this series! Should Vegeta have gone Super Saiyan Blue? Would that have made a difference? It’s tough to say. Vegeta put up a tough offense, but Jin is simply able to outlast the onslaught and hit his finisher at the best time.
