  • Daddy Magic and Angelo Parker cut a promo as the hometown heroes in Montreal, ahead of their tag match later tonight, Jake Hager says he won’t be with them for the match because he’s busy getting the authorities to do something about Danhausen taking his hat.

Both men go over the ropes together crashing to the floor below heading into the commercial break.

  • Penta El Zero Miedo & Komander defeat Daddy Magic & Angelo Parker. The fans are going crazy for their hometown guys Magic and Parker. Penta is stopped in his tracks by the Daddy Magic chants. Komander dominates Parker before Penta gets in there to catapult his partner into both opponents sitting in the corner. Magic and Parker counter Penta and Komander’s stereo dives through the ropes, and toss them into the barricade heading into the commercial break. Magic briefly locks Penta in the Montreal Crab later in the fight. But Komander and Penta regain the advantage and finish Parker off with a tightrope walk fear factor tandem move for the pin.
