The night started brutally with a Tables Match that pitted Travis Banks against Curt Chaos. Both men sought to end the match early by utilizing the tables around the ring, but it would ultimately be in the centre of the ring where the match would be decided.

AOC took early control of the match as the fight spilled outside and Banks struggled to gain space from the double team attack. When the physicality returned to the ring, however, the momentum shifted and the champ began to show the Agents what getting down to business his way was all about. Continue Reading
