Here's a run-down of the card, and we'll update with basic results here, too:
Ivelisse over Candy Cartwright by pinfall with an exploder suplex after a referee bump and Aja Perera ran in to stop Cartwright from using her Shine Nova Championship title belt as a weapon. (Shine Championship Tournament First Round Match)
Allysin Kay over Brandi Lauren by pinfall with a discus lariat. (Shine Championship Tournament First Round Match)
Post-match, Lauren snaps Kay’s arm over the ropes!
Mercedes Martinez over Stormie Lee by submission with a Romero Special / Dragon sleeper combination. (Shine Championship Tournament First Round Match)
Santana Garrett over Priscilla Kelly by pinfall with a small package. (Shine Championship Tournament First Round Match)
Mercedes Martinez over Ivelisse by pinfall, reversing a headscissors octopus hold into a pinning predicament. (Shine Championship Tournament Semifinal Match)
Allysin Kay over Santana Garrett by submission with an over-the-shoulder toehold. (Shine Championship Tournament Semifinal Match)
Twisted Sisterz (Holidead & Thunder Rosa) (c) over Cutie Pie Club (Dementia D’Rose & Kiera Hogan) by pinfall with a diving double stomp from Rosa on Hogan to retain the Shine Tag Team Championship.
Allysin Kay over Mercedes Martinez by submission with a deathlock toehold to win the vacant Shine Championship. (Tournament Finals)
Post-match, we get a display of good sportsmanship up to and including Martinez returning the pinkies up salute, but Ivelisse refuses, flipping a pair of rather different fingers at AK.
