He runs through Mansoor with a shoulder block...Mansoor picks the ankle again and applies a headlock of his own....Miles bounces him off the ropes and trips Mansoor coming off the ropes.

Miles shakes it off and sweeps the leg from ringside. He whiplashes Mansoor into the ropes, then proceeds to stomp him down in the corner. Neckbreaker from Miles for a nearfall. He picks Mansoor up and clubs him across the back. Another neckbreaker...another close two count. Miles keeps the pressure on Mansoor's neck with a rear chinlock. Fans try to rally Mansoor back into the bout...he manages to dump Miles to the outside. Miles aggressively comes back...Mansoor cradles him...Miles just kicks out. Mansoor starts stringing together offense including an atomic drop and a spinebuster. Sling-shot neckbreaker from the apron...Miles is in trouble...Mansoor drags him into position and climbs to the top...moonsault misses...Miles follows up with a flapjack.

Main event time. Oney Lorcan is out first, however he is not accompanied by his normal tag partner Danny Burch. Escobar is out next along with Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde (Legado Del Fantasma). Here we go.
Oney Lorcan versus Santos Escobar
Tie-up...neither man is able to gain the advantage so they reset. Second tie-up...Escobar with a quick arm-drag. Lorcan presses him off and chops the champ hard across the chest...Escobar barely flinches. He brings Lorcan down with a standing Kimura...Lorcan manages to escape and create separation. Escobar brings Lorcan down and goes for a lateral press pin...Lorcan kicks out. Escobar continues going after Lorcan's injured arm...Lorcan school-boys Escobar for a quick nearfall. Escobar shakes it off and goes for a variety of submissions to wear Lorcan down. Lorcan fires off a chop with his good arm but the champ traps him in a headlock, then hits a snap-suplex with the bad arm tucked behind. Every time Lorcan lands a bit of offense Escobar battles him off. Lorcan does hit a running uppercut as Escobar climbed to the top but Escobar rakes the arm of the ropes, then whips it into the ringpost. Commentary asks whether or not the referee should stop the match after the amount of damage that has been done to Lorcan's arm. Lorcan eventually hulks up and drops the champ with another running uppercut. He connects with his signature running blockbuster but his arm keeps him from making the cover. Escobar drives the knees into the arm again...he follows up with the Phantom Driver for the easy victory.
