Eli Drake reveals his tag partner
Eli Drake comes to the ring to name his partner for a tag title shot at Redemption. As he’s talking up the idea he can hold multiple titles, LAX interrupts. Eli makes his way up the ramp as LAX takes the ring. Konnan insists on knowing his tag partner.
IT’S SCOTT STEINER! YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!
Steiner cuts a promo telling the white trash in the audience he’s one of the best. Konnan tries to put the seed in Eli’s head that Steiner may not even show up, show up late, or kick his ass prior. He asks Scott to question whether or not he even has it any more.

Sami Callihan (w/oVe) vs. Moose
Moose comes out angry and takes it to Callihan. Sami has a quick flurry here and there, but it’s extinguished. Moose dishes TWO apron powerbombs to Callihan. Sami finally gets control when he grabs the ref and mule kicks Moose low.
Moose eventually fires back and this becomes a back and forth affair. As Moose is trying for a spear, Callihan hits him with the bat, resulting in a DQ.
Moose wins by DQ
oVe run down and start attacking Moose. And out comes Eddie. But the numbers are still too much. Jake and Dave hold Eddie as Sami sets to hit him again with the bat. Out comes Eddie’s wife, Alisha, who drapes herself over her husbands body. Sami backs her into the corner with the bat. Then the lights go out....
AND WHEN THEY COME BACK ON, TOMMY DREAMER IS THERE INSTEAD!
He has a kendo stick and he clears the ring. Dreamer grabs a mic an tells Callihan they’ve tried to start a revolution but now they’ve got to face Moose, Eddie, and Dreamer in a House of Hardcore match at Redemption.
Josh Mathews (w/Matt Sydal) vs. Petey Williams
Josh stalling with excessive stretching early on. Then he runs from Petey.
Matt Sydal distracts Petey and Josh nails him from behind and tries to set up the Canadian Destroyer. But Williams completely shrugs him off and locks him into the Sharpshooter. This brings Sydal into the ring to distract Petey.
Still Petey is able to lock in the set up for the Canadian Destroyer on Mathews eventually but Sydal runs back in and kicks him in the face resulting in a DQ.
Petey def. Mathews by DQ
Sydal continues to attack Petey, choking him with his jacket.
They play a Brian Cage video.
Jimmy Jacobs and Kongo Kong interrupts another Johnny Impact interview backstage. In the end, Johnny Impact tells them if they want to fight, they can find him in the ring next week.
KM, Caleb Konley, & Trevor Lee vs. Richard Justice, Fallah Bahh, and Tyrus
We get a moment early on with Justice landing some punches to KM. However, Lee kicks him in the back when he hits the ropes and the heel take advantage.
He finally tags out bringing in Tyrus. Justice jumps from the apron to the floor landing on the Cult of Lee. KM finds himself alone with Tyrus and Bahh. Tyrus goozles KM and then tags in Fallah, who lands a Bonzai Drop for the 1-2-3.
Justice, Bahh, & Tyrus win
Taya Valkyrie vs. Rosemary in the Demon’s Dance
The fight spills up the ramp and then back down early on. While Rosemary is dropped on the guardrail, Taya introduces chairs into the ring.
Rosemary is set up in the corner with a chair on top of her and Taya delivers knees to the chair. Then she sets up a chair between the legs of the Demon and smacks it with another chair.
Rosemary delivers a slingblade to Taya on top of a chair and then introduces a ladder into the bout. She sets it up into the corner. After a bit of a battle, Taya finally gets tossed into the ladder.
The Demon Assassin takes the moment to grab a table. She sets it up in the middle of the ring. But when she goes for a shoulder tackle in the corner, Rosemary goes face first into a chair set up in the turnbuckles.
Taya sets up Rosemary on the table... goes to the top rope... but Rosemary kicks her. A battle ensues on the top rope. They both attempt their finishers on the top but the other fights out. HOLY SHIT! TOP ROPE PILEDRIVER THROUGH THE TABLE!
Rosemary def. Taya
