Liam Gray and the EVOLVE Tag Team Champions AR Fox and Leon Ruff (with Ayla and The Skulk) vs. Eddie Kingston, Joe Gacy, and Donovan
The titles are on the line in the match. Leonard said Colby Corino was supposed to be in the match and he didn’t know why he wasn’t there. He played it up that The Unwanted were playing “mind games” by having Donovan now in as a substitute.
AR Fox got the pin on Kingston after a 450 splash as Gray and Ruff also hit finishers on Gacy and Donovan.
Adrian Alanis vs. Harlem Bravado
Leonard said if Bravado doesn’t win tonight and tomorrow night, he will be gone from EVOLVE for the time being because his spot is on the line.

Big Game Leroy vs. Brandon Taggart vs. Sean Maluta vs. Anthony Greene (with Brandi Lauren) in an Evolution‘s Edge Tournament Match
Maluta pinned Leroy after a kick.
Leroy does a gimmick where he has a Nintendo Switch in the match with him the whole time and he seems more concerned with playing video games on it than worrying about the match. He also used the device as a weapon to distract his opponents at times.
Greene used his feet on the ropes to pin Taggart.
Greene pinned Maluta after a killswitch to win the match.
Josh Briggs vs. Kassius Ohno (with Harlem Bravado)
Ohno got the pin after the Hero’s Welcome.
After the match Ohno tried to shake hands but Briggs refused. Austin Theory ran out and attacked Briggs from behind. Ohno tried to pull him off but Theory shoved him down. Ohno then tried to separate Briggs but Briggs also shoved him down. Theory and Briggs brawled to the back as Ohno looked on in disappointment.
JD Drake vs. WWE U.K. Champion WALTER in a non-title match
WALTER got the pin after a short arm clothesline.
They started off with some really quick mat wrestling and exchanges then it broke down into the hard hitting chop fest that everyone expected it to be.
Drake hit the stunner and a cannonball in the corner but he missed the moonsault. WALTER hit him with a dropkick in the corner then gave him a release power bomb for a two count.
Drake’s chest was red after the match and he had several noticeable welts around his collarbone and neck. Anthony Henry came out to the stage and sarcastically applauded him. They will face each other tomorrow night and WALTER takes on Ohno.
