TEAM REST OF THE WORLD vs. TEAM USA #2
Drew Galloway, Angelico & El Mesias vs. Matt Hardy, Ken Anderson & Johnny MundoA bit of miscommunication between Team USA early on. Mundo got turned around and accidentally flipped off his own corner; at least that’s what we’re going with. They let Mundo and Angelico show off for the majority of the action, which was smart. They both hit insane dives to the outside. You really got to see Galloway’s size here, as he normally doesn’t play the “big man” in his matches. Your traditional “everyone hit their finishers” spot as the clock winded down. Gallows rolled through a backslide pin and hit the Future Shock DDT on Mundo, but turned around into the Twist of Fate from Hardy, who turns around into a huge step-up kick from Angelico, who turns around into the Mic Check from Anderson, who turns into a big spear from Mesias. The clock runs out as Mundo went for the pin, the referee never attempted to make the count and Vampiro trashed him for it.
It’s Galloway vs. Mundo in sudden death. They slug away at the bell and Mundo hits a set of superkicks for two. Galloway tries for a Fujiwara armbar but doesn’t get it, and they collide with crossbodies in the middle of the ring. Drew with a modified emerald fusion, but the referee counts so slow he only gets two; again Vamp gives him hell. Mundo with the Shooting Star Press off the top for the win. To be fair… the ref counted slow for both guys.
Advancing: Team USA #2
TEAM MEXLEYENDES vs. TEAM USA #2The Americans immediately go into super heel mode, throwing all the disrespect at the legends. They work over Blue Demon for most of the match. They builds towards the comeback, which sees all three of them hit suicidas, throwing they can still pull out the big moves when it counts. A brawl breaks out on the floor and Johnny Mundo takes advantage with everyone else distracted, hitting Wagner with the Shooting Star Press for the huge, huge surprise upset.
Advancing: Team USA #2
-The legends try to celebrate on the ramp afterwards and the Americans crash their party. Demon goes after Matt Hardy and they chase each other around, as Johnny Mundo gives them and the fans the double birds. And now they’ve put heat on Team USA for the finals.
