“All Ego” Ethan Page (with American Top Team’s Dan Lambert) vs. “Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy (with Best Friends)!

Tony Schiavone was on the ramp to interview Christian Cage!
It’s been two weeks since Christian’s post-match attack on Jungle Boy.
Christian Cage: “Now Tony, I was asked by upper management to come out here and apologize for the insensitive remarks I made last week about Jungle Boy’s family. I’ve never apologized for anything I’ve ever done or said my entire career. That being said, Jungle Boy, I’m sorry your entire family isn’t dead and they had to witness you and me two weeks ago in that ring on DYNAMITE.
“The only thing this scumbag city has going for it is that you’re close to Canada. Now you motor city sweat hogs might be wondering why I’m standing out here in street clothes when I requested a match. I requested a match but I never said it was for me.”
Out walked Luchasaurus!
Luchasaurus entered the ring to face Serpentico, while Christian Cage stood outside the ring and watched.
Luchasaurus headbutted Serpentico! He sent Serpentico for a ride with a wheelbarrow suplex! Luchasaurus tied up Serpentico’s legs, locked him in a snare trap and applied a nerve hold. Serpentico was forced to tap out!
“Christian Cage has found himself a very valuable ally,” said Excalibur.
After the match, Luchasaurus yanked Serpentico out of the ring. Luchasaurus choke slammed Serpentico on the arena floor!
Backstage, Tony Schiavone interviewed the TNT Champion Scorpio Sky and Wardlow!
Wardlow: “I’m done talking. I’m sick of this. Bring every member of American Top Team. I’ll treat every one of them like they are security guards and then I’ll beat your ass and take that title home.”
Sky: “OK, since you’re so tough, let’s have a street fight next week with the title at stake!”
