Mauro Ranallo: Good evening and welcome to Warfare! This is our last show before Fanniversary. Kicking things off tonight, we've got Alexa Bliss in action as she goes one on one with the Galaxy's Greatest Alien, Kris Statlander!
"The Heat Goes On" by Asia hit and the crowd cheered as Kris Statlander made it to the ring. When Statlander was in the ring, "Spiteful" by CFO$ hit and Alexa Bliss came out to a mixed reaction from the crowd. After Bliss had entered the ring, the referee called for the bell and the two women locked up. Bliss hit Statlander with a snapmare, then stomped on her several times. She pulled Statlander to her feet and whipped her into the corner, then ran at her, going for a clothesline, but Statlander got her knees up and blocked it. Bliss staggered backwards, and Statlander climbed to the top rope, then hit Bliss with a diving crossbody. She hooked the leg and the referee counted – 1... 2... Bliss kicked out! Statlander pulled Bliss to her feet and set her up for a northern lights suplex, but Bliss blocked it and countered with a DDT! Alexa then walked towards the corner and climbed the turnbuckles, before hitting Statlander with Twisted Bliss! She hooked the leg and the referee counted – 1... 2... 3!
Nigel McGuinness: It's over! Alexa Bliss wins!
Bliss celebrated as Warfare went to a commercial break.
As Warfare returned from a commercial break, Killer Kross and Tommaso Ciampa were on their way to the ring for the next match.
Mauro Ranallo: Welcome back! Up next, we've got tag team action as Killer Kross and Tommaso Ciampa team up to take on the Intrepid Traveller, Paul London, and the Master of the Multiverse, Matt Hardy.
Nigel McGuinness: Two very interesting pairings, Mauro!
When Kross and Ciampa were in the ring, "Rise of Damascus" hit and the crowd cheered as Matt Hardy stepped out onto the stage. Hardy stood at the top of the ramp as "The Heat Goes On" by Asia hit and Paul London walked through the curtain. Hardy and London walked to the ring together, and after they had entered the ring, London climbed onto the ring apron. Across the ring, Killer Kross moved onto the apron, allowing Ciampa to start the match. The referee called the bell, and Hardy grinned maniacally at Ciampa, yelled "Delete!" then charged towards Ciampa, going for a clothesline. Ciampa ducked out of the way, then turned around and hit Hardy with a series of punches. Ciampa dragged Hardy towards the corner, slammed his head off the turnbuckle, then as Kross held him in place, Ciampa kicked Hardy in the midsection several times.
Mauro Ranallo: Kross and Ciampa working well together here!
Ciampa tagged in Kross, and as Kross entered the ring he dragged Hardy out of the corner, lifting him up and hitting an Olympic slam. He hooked the leg and the referee counted – 1... 2... Hardy kicked out! Kross got to his feet and stomped on Hardy several times, then pulled him to his feet and whipped him against the ropes. As Hardy ran back towards him, Kross went for a big boot, but Hardy ducked out of the way, then grabbed Kross from behind and took him down with a Russian legsweep. London called for the tag, and Hardy crawled towards the corner, tagging him in. London climbed to the top rope, then as Killer Kross got to his feet, Paul London hit him with a missile dropkick! London got to his feet, and hit a standing shooting star press, then hooked the leg. The referee counted – 1... 2... Kross kicked out!
Nigel McGuinness: Incredible athleticism from Paul London, but it's only enough for a two count!
London got to his feet and stomped on Kross several times, then pulled him to his feet, setting him up for a suplex. Kross blocked it, countering with a suplex of his own. Both men got to their feet and Kross hit London with a series of punches, then whipped him into the corner. Kross charged towards the corner and hit London with a clothesline, then tagged in Tommaso Ciampa. Ciampa and Kross worked in unison, stomping on London in the corner, until Matt Hardy entered the ring and rushed to the corner, coming to his partner's aid. The referee tried to restore order, ordering Kross and Hardy to exit the ring. As they did so, Ciampa pulled London to his feet and dragged him towards the center of the ring, then hit the Fairy Tale Ending! He hooked the leg and the referee counted – 1... 2... 3!
Mauro Ranallo: It's over! Tommaso Ciampa gets the victory for his team!
Ciampa and Kross made their way backstage as Hardy checked on London.
Mauro Ranallo: Up next, it's time for our main event. The EBWF World Champion The Rock goes one on one with Elias Samson!
Nigel McGuinness: You say one on one, Mauro... but Elias will have Chavo Guerrero and one of The Rock's Fanniversary opponents, Aiden English, in his corner. It's more like a three on one!
Mauro Ranallo: Maybe so, but The Rock has a habit of coming out on top even when the odds are against him!
"Moments" by Sevendust hit and the crowd booed as Elias Samson made his way to the ring, accompanied by Aiden English and Chavo Guerrero. After Elias had entered the ring, "Electrifying" hit and the arena erupted as The Rock stepped out onto the stage. The Rock walked down the ramp towards the ring, the EBWF World Title over his shoulder, then entered the ring and looked across at Elias. The Rock locked eyes with Aiden English at ringside, then walked towards the corner and climbed the turnbuckle, holding up the title. English looked up at the title enviously.
Nigel McGuinness: Aiden English is still waiting for his rematch after losing the World Title at Wrestlemania. Can he become a two-time World Champion at Fanniversary?
The Rock climbed down from the turnbuckle and handed his title to one of the officials at ringside, then looked across at Elias once more. The referee called for the bell, and Elias charged towards The Rock, but The Rock was ready for him and he hit Elias with a series of right hands. The Rock then whipped Elias against the ropes, and as Elias ran back towards him, The Rock hit a snap overhead belly-to-belly suplex. Elias rolled out of the ring, and The Rock followed him to the outside, but Aiden English and Chavo Guerrero blocked his path, protecting Elias. The Rock looked frustrated, and he hit Chavo with a right hand, knocking him down! Aiden English stepped away, protesting his innocence, and while The Rock was distracted, Elias charged towards him, hitting him with a clothesline. Elias stomped on The Rock several times, then pulled him to his feet and threw him into the ring steps! Elias then rolled Rock back into the ring, slid under the bottom rope and hooked the leg. The referee counted – 1... 2... The Rock kicked out!
Mauro Ranallo: Aiden English and Chavo Guerrero making the difference in this match... Elias is in control now!
Nigel McGuinness: It makes you wonder what chaos will be in store for The Rock at Fanniversary, Mauro.
Elias pulled The Rock to his feet and dragged him towards the corner, slamming his head off the turnbuckle. Elias then hit Rock with a series of punches and kicks, before sitting him on the top rope. Elias set The Rock up for a superplex... but The Rock blocked it and shoved Elias away, then hit him with a double axe handle! The Rock stomped on Elias several times, then pulled him towards the center of the ring, grabbing him by the legs and locking in the sharpshooter! Elias tried to get to the bottom rope, but the ropes were out of reach. Just when it looked like Elias was going to tap out, Aiden English climbed onto the ring apron, distracting the referee! While the referee was distracted, Chavo Guerrero reached through the ropes and grabbed Elias Samson's hand, pulling him towards the ropes. When Elias was able to grab the rope, Chavo signalled to English and English climbed down from the apron. The referee turned around, saw Elias had got to the ropes, and ordered The Rock to break the hold. The Rock looked frustrated, and as he broke the hold he pulled Elias away from the ropes, dragging him to his feet and hitting a DDT. He hooked the leg and the referee counted – 1... 2... Elias kicked out! The Rock pulled Elias to his feet and hit him with some more right hands, then whipped him against the ropes and hit a spinebuster! The crowd got excited, and The Rock signalled for the People's Elbow! He removed his elbow pad, swung his arms back and forth and ran against the ropes... but as he hit the ropes, Aiden English grabbed The Rock's leg, tripping him! The Rock turned around and glared at English, and he was about to exit the ring to deal with him, but before he could do so Elias grabbed him, rolling him up! The referee counted – 1... 2... Rock kicked out!
Mauro Ranallo: Thanks to Aiden English, Elias almost stole a victory!
The camera cut to Aiden English at ringside, who was cheering on Elias. All of a sudden, Chris Jericho and Jake Hager could be seen running down the ramp. English turned around, and Hager hit him with a clothesline! As Jericho and Hager beat down English, Chavo Guerrero came to his aid. While a brawl was happening at ringside, the camera cut back to the ring. Elias had The Rock set up for the Drift Away... but The Rock blocked it, then hit Elias with the Rock Bottom! He hooked the leg and the referee counted – 1... 2... 3!
Nigel McGuinness: It's over! The Rock wins!
As the bell rang and The Rock's music hit, the camera cut back to ringside. Jake Hager was brawling with Chavo Guerrero and Hager grabbed Chavo, throwing him over the ringside barrier! Hager then charged into the ring, attacking The Rock! As The Rock and Hager brawled, Jericho entered the ring to help Hager. A few moments later, Aiden English, Chavo Guerrero and Elias Samson got involved, and a six way brawl broke out. Referees and road agents rushed to the ring to try and restore order.
Mauro Ranallo: What carnage this is! Is this a preview of what we can expect next Sunday?
The chaotic brawl continued as Warfare went off the air.
