MCW World Heavyweight Championship #1 Contender Match: Tommy Knight vs. Caveman Ugg
After their match at Icons ended early due to the interference of Slex, they battle again – this time to see who will face Slex for his championship.

Women’s Championship: DELTA (C) vs. Erika Reid
The relentless Delta faces her first challenger for her Women’s Championship in a little while, and The Dreamtime Voodoo Witch is more than a worthy contender.

Robbie Thorpe has taken interesting counsel in the form of MCW GM Rocky Menero as he prepares to face Sydney’s well-respected Tuckman.

Edward Dusk vs. Lucky O’Leary
Dusk continues his quest towards the MCW World Heavyweight Championship, but his next opponent might have luck on his side.
