Deppen did not give Crist the easy win. He would fight back — but eventually Crist picked up the win.
Private Party (Isiah Kassidy and Marq Quen) defeated The Ugly Ducklings (Rob Killjoy and Lance Lude). This was their first appearance in the Combat Zone for both teams.
The crowd liked both teams that they were both asked to come back to the Flyers Skate Zone again in the future. Both teams shook hands after their match.
Prior to the Six-Man scramble match, “The Artist” Jake Crist was replaced by Ace Romero, a 350-pounder, who had some impressive moves. The match now featured Shane Strickland, Romero, Greg Excellent, Tim Donst, Ace Austin and Alex Daniels.

After leaving briefly, they returned with a door that said “Death” on it and putting him through it. They would attack him some more — and even hit him with the broken part of the door.
