“The Don Mega” Shorty Biggs d. Outtkast to win the D-1 Title; Outtkast got a near-fall after his corkscrew moonsault senton, but missed his second attempt at the move. Shorty capitalized with a Paydirt and fireman’s-carry Michinoku Driver for the win over his Bumrush Brother tag team partner (16:05).
Shorty was happy to give his tag team partner his return match for the title…it sounds like it’ll take place at the September 17th show.
Mike Outlaw d. “Dirdey” Jake Dirden to win the Heavyweight Title for the second time. Dirden nearly won by countout after throwing Outlaw over some ringside chairs, but he barely beat the ten-count. The referee was knocked down and Dirden delivered a chokeslam, but there was no one to count the pin attempt. Dirden brought in a chair, but Outlaw dropkicked it back into his face and delivered the High Noon(top-rope elbowdrop) for a close near-fall. An errant Dirden boot felled the referee again and Outlaw hit a middle-rope springboard European uppercut, but Dirden took him out with the chair and a second referee ran in to count…two. Dirden wedged the chair in the corner as the second referee helped the first official back to the dressing room area…but Outlaw reversed an Irish whip into the corner chair, then whacked Dirden twice with the chair. Outlaw followed up with the Mafia Kick and the second referee returned to count…two. Outlaw didn’t waste time and dropped Dirden with a second Mafia Kick, then hit a second High Noon to finally get the win for the title (21:08)!
Outlaw was ecstatic to regain the championship after a year-plus of Dirden dodging him…but he said he wouldn’t be the same kind of champion and offered Dirden a rematch whenever he wanted it. The two shook hands to end the show.
