There were some technical difficulties at the start. There was a black screen shown and the announcers could be heard trying to get things situated.
Mickie James kicked off the show. She said tonight is about women’s wrestling and “they” told her that tonight wouldn’t be possible and that women’s wrestling doesn’t make money so she bet on the best women for the NWA.

They did a cool Tower of Doom spot that led into Tormenta covering Diamante and then covering Raw but it was a 2 count on both occasions. Rae had the match almost won with a crossface on Tormenta but Diamante distracted the ref by tossing a chain in the ring and then she pinned Tormenta after hitting the Canadian Destroyer.

Backstage interview with The Hex.
Gail Kim made a surprise appearance. She went to the ring and she talked about some of the legendary women wrestlers from yesteryear.

Terrell said that this is all about her and she wanted Gail out of the ring. Awesome Kong walked out and she took out Blaze and Jannacide. It was Kong and Kim left in the ring. Kong said it’s been a hard year in the Kong residence and one thing got her off the couch and away from delicious ice cream bars and that’s Gail Kim.
