2) August Grey and Jake Atlas defeated Ariya Daivari and Tony Nese
The veterans of Ariya Daivari and Tony Nese have been a thorn in the side of August Grey and Jake Atlas in recent weeks. Daivari mocks Grey to start before tagging in Nese. Grey gets the better of a chain wrestling sequence until Nese lands a hard right hand. Daivari and Nese exchange tags while keeping Grey in the corner. A double suplex attempt is countered as Grey flips out and makes the hot tag to Atlas who cleans house. Grey climbs to the top rope but is crotched by Daivari.
Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari continue to double team until Jake Atlas is able to make the hot tag Austen Grey. Grey rushes in with a headscissors to Nesa followed by a big closeline before knocking Daivari off the apron. Daivari heads into the ring and is caught with So Much Prettier before being caught by Nese. Nese connects with a sitdown cradle driver that gets a close two count as Atlas makes the safe. Atlas connects with a suicide dive on Atlas to the outside as Grey lands So Much Prettier on Nese for the win.

Match Analysis: Fun tag match between four wrestlers who are building impressive chemistry. Giving Grey and Atlas the win is a good balance to the heel tactics of Nese and Daivari. Worth a Watch. ***1/4
