The left side of the bracket was up first this week.
In the opening match, the odd couple of Bron Breakker and Baron Corbin turned out to be a solid team who worked well enough together that they took out the Gallus boys when Corbin pinned Mark Coffey after Deep Six.
Later on, Axiom and Nathan Frazer got past Hank Walker and Tank Ledger with relative ease.
Those two teams will now meet in the semifinals. The right side of the bracket will get going next week.
