Matt Morgan vs. Robbie E (c) w/ Robbie T.
Robbie E runs straight into Matt Morgan and gets wiped out by Morgan’s shoulder right from the outset.
Go behind from Robbie, but Morgan just thrusts into Robbie’s stomach, sending him back to the floor. He convinces Robbie T to go to the apron to distract the referee so Robbie E can sneak up on Morgan. This fails, and Morgan throws him into the corner, with a massive hip toss. He momentarily chokes Robbie E on the top rope, then a running boot over the top on him. Prone on the apron, Robbie E gets a leg drop but Robbie T sneaks a shot from behind. Robbie E goes for a couple of pins before the commercial break, but Morgan powers out both times.
We come back to a few fist pumps, and top rope elbow on Morgan. Sleeper from Robbie E keeps Morgan on the ground momentarily, but Morgan just piggy-backs Robbie into the corner. Powers through with an elbow, clothesline and a knee to the face. A corner splash and a side slam on Morgan, and Morgan is back in control.
Morgan is lining up to finish Robbie E, but Robbie T comes in and purposely gets the match thrown out by DQ with an axe-handle smash.
Winner: Matt Morgan via DQ. Robbie E remains Television Champion.
Morgan realises what has happened moments later, and clears house by literally throwing Robbie E out of the ring, and giving Robbie T a clothesline.
