Cora Jade vs. Elektra Lopez
Cora is very fired up; it is mostly Cora in control of the match. Cora did miss Elektra on two occasions, one when she did the basement drop kick and one when she bounced off Elektra. Lopez took herself to the outside of the ring instead. It seemed like a quick rivalry between them to give Cora someone to face for the moment.

Stevie Turner vs. Angel Hayze
Stevie uses a distraction to give Angel a big boot causing her to stumble in the corner, Stevie continues stomping Angel. Hayze is able to use her speed, to gain the control over Stevie, which didn’t last long. Stevie pulled Angel’s hair to gain control, running over the ropes to hit Angel with a running knee. Turner keeps Angel by the ropes, Angel is using them to stay up, Stevie runs from one side to the other to hit Angel with another running knee, she follows it with a swinging neck breaker. Stevie keeps Angel in place with a submission, Angel fights out of it with a few punches to Stevie’s abdomen. Angel dodges a big boot from Stevie, follows it with a few elbows to the face, keeping her momentum. Angel is running towards the ropes, Stevie holds her tights, causing Angel to try again and Stevie following suit then landing her with a big boot, sets up the Mass Effect for the win. Stevie defeats Angel. I enjoyed the quick action between these two, it’s the first time I watch Stevie wrestle, I’m looking forward to watching her more often.
