Low-Ki gets Sydal in an abdominal stretch. Borash mentions on commentary that Low-Ki was in the first ever match of this company on June 19th 2002. Sydal tries to break out of the stretch but ends up eating a standing double foot stomp. Trevor Lee is back in and connects with a neck breaker. The heels then isolate Sydal and double team him in their corner. Sydal eventually rallies and makes the hot tag to Sonjay Dutt. He goes after both Lee and Low-Ki. Sonjay gets a close fall on Trevor after springboarding off of Low-Ki and hitting Trevor with a tornado DDT. Trevor Lee fights back with a stiff forearm to the champ and Low-Ki is tagged in to go toe to toe with Dutt. Low-Ki momentarily gets the advantage on Sonjay but he ends up tagging in Matt Sydal.
