Luchasaurus then came in and manhandled The Elite. Adam Cole went for a Panama Sunrise but was caught and then chokeslammed into Kenny Omega. He quickly followed it with a tailwhip before he was taken out.

Jungle Boy then eliminated Nick Jackson with a hurricanrana to the outside. Bryan Danielson then hit a dive of his own into the crowd, followed by one from Kenny Omega.

Adam Cole was going to follow them but decided to pose for the crowd instead, and that's where Luchasaurus cut him off. The Elite ended up outnumbering Luchasaurus and taking him out.

They then turned their attention to Jungle Boy, who was hit with a Panama Sunrise by Adam Cole. Bryan Danielson broke up the count but was taken out by a triple superkick. Jungle Boy was then hit with a four-way BTE Trigger and then pinned by Adam Cole for the win.
