Maxx used his size and strength to take the early advantage in the match. However, Madrigal used the steel steps to damage the formerly injured leg of Main Maxx. The PHX champion worked on Main Maxx’s leg throughout the contest in hopes of getting the bigger man to tap out. Madrigal got to hit the GTS, but Maxx got up by 2. Main Maxx almost got the win after he hit a thunderous Blitzkreig on the PHX champ. However the Kakaibr0s interfered and Madrigal used that moment to low blow Main Maxx. Madrigal connected with the GTS and got the pinfall victory.

All Out War Match: Vlad Sinnsyk © vs. The Apocalypse

The former AOW Champion started off strong with a mighty chairshot to Vlad. This All Out War match was very brutal and featured an assortment of items from a ladder, lego blocks, and even a green calabash/upo. Vlad delivered a hard smash on Apocalypse with the Calabash and it not only split the vegetable in half, but chunks of it flew into the audience area. Vlad missed a senton bomb and landed back-first onto the big lego blocks in the ring. Vlad tried to deliver the Muscle Buster on the Apocalypse but the masked man countered with the Death Bell! The end was rather mysterious as both men were down for the 10 count, but it was Vlad who got his feet first before the count of ten to retain the belt. Vintend0 stormed to the ringside area and snatched the AOW belt after the match.
