MLW Fusion commentary team of Rich Bocchini and Saint Laurent opened the show and announced that ACH was attacked outside of his gym earlier in the week. Bocchini said there were rumors of Team Filthy being involved in the attack.

The first match of the night saw Daivari make his MLW debut.

MLW Fusion Match One: Contra Unit Member Daivari vs. Zenshi

Daivari first appeared in the company on MLW Kings of Colosseum alongside Contra Unit attacking Injustice. This middleweight bout started with Larry Peace as the referee.

Zenshi has been seen on MLW Fusion, but he has not won a match since The Restart event. Daivari looked to be in the best shape of his career. He did his best to keep Zenshi from performing any high flying moves. He focused on Zenshi's arm as Daivari hit his opponent with a Hammerlock bodyslam.

Zenshi showed off his high flying ability with seated 450 to a standing Daivari and following it up with a Twist-O-Whirl Slam.

Zenshi put up some great offense with a leaping neckbreaker. However, his follow up to a middle rope 450 splash didn't land as Daivari got his knees up to stop the move. Daivari finished him off with a Hammerlock Clothesline to Zenshi and scored the pin.

These two held nothing back. The first 40 seconds were just both men throwing strikes until Gotch hit a back suplex on Oliver.

Oliver went for the baseball slide on Gotch. However, he would miss and end up on the ground and Gotch hit a devastating elbow drop from the apron.

Gotch hit a massive knee to the head of Oliver, knocking him down instantly. Gotch would showcase his submission skills, but Oliver's reach allowed him to get to the ropes quickly.

Oliver looked impressive as he hit a big boot onto Simon Gotch. However, he would only get a two count.

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough for Oliver as he became victim to Gotch's chokehold and was out cold. Simon Gotch would pick up the victory.
