Tom Phillips and Beth Phoenix are calling the show with Vic Joseph and Wade Barrett “having the night off.” It’s also worth noting there’s no talent in the crowd, seemingly confirming a COVID-19 outbreak has hit the black-and-yellow brand.

Several independent talent and/or new signees competed but were tossed out early. Marina Shafir took part. Ripley and Gonzalez dominated until they eliminated each other. LeRae battled Shotzi in the final minutes before successfully tossing her out.
