First In-Ring Segment:
We recap the World Title change from a few weeks ago and last week’s Monster’s Ball match.Here’s Magnus with what looks like a grappling hook. He calls out Abyss because it’s the Monster’s fault that Magnus lost the title. Magnus calls Abyss a blithering idiot. The weapon in his hand is part of a turnbuckle and Magnus yells at Abyss for not coming down to ringside. Abyss says he’d be fired if he came down so Magnus fires him anyway. The monster says that it was never about the money but wanting to belong to someone. Abyss says he’s still a monster and looks to want a fight but here’s MVP to interrupt.
MVP says calm down and that Abyss isn’t his favorite person after Abyss hit him with a chair a few weeks ago. However, MVP is all about second chances so maybe Abyss should be offered a full time spot on the roster if he can win his match tonight. That match is of course against Magnus and MVP literally skips away. Abyss is thrilled and promises to take care of Magnus tonight.
Spud tells EC3 to save the speech this week but EC3 cuts him off and says last week he saw a ghost. It was actually real though and there’s only one man that can beat Angle: Carter himself. Tonight Spud needs to be a gazelle for Carter. Ethan adjusts Spud’s tie and the picture is starting to make sense to the Rockster.
First Match: Kurt Angle vs. Rockstar Spud
Spud goes for a leg dive and is literally thrown across the ring to start the match. Angle gave Spud a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker off the top rope and puts Spud down and Angle no sells everything until Carter trips him up to give Spud quick control of the match. Angle runs the ropes for the suplex and gives Spud the ankle lock and gets the win.
After the match EC3 attacks Kurt Angle from behind and out comes Willow for the save.
Winner: Kurt Angle
