- Dylan Black over Mystikal Dragon via submission.
- Once again, Huge Ref was distracted by trashy women in the crowd during Dragon's match. Seeing enough, Magic Ref interrupted to claim Tuesday Night Spotlight was the flagship show during his tenure while Huge Ref turned it into a "low rent version of Jerry Springer." The current head of Spotlight defended his programming choices by calling the Hall of Famer old and out of touch while he was presenting an edgier product.
- The Front Office did not disagree with the edgy direction except for the fact that ratings were down compared to Sunday Showcase, which was deemed the superior show. Spotlight was declared to be in a state of emergency and at Nuclear Winter, Huge Ref and Magic Ref would choose wrestlers to represent them, with the winning official controlling the brand. Huge Ref flipped off the Front Office and left the building.
- The Killer celebrated his GWA World Title reign and promised it would continue through Nuclear Winter. GWA World Tag Team Champion Mike Lio claimed one successful defense did not a legacy make and reminded The Killer he was in a dumpster in recent memory. Lio asked for another shot at the champion, even without the title on the line, and Dark Ref emerged to officiate.
- Non-title match: GWA World Champion The Killer over Mike Lio via pinfall.
- The Killer defeated Mike Lio in a close back and forth contest that saw each competitor kick out of the other's finishing move. In the end, the champion picked up steam ahead of his defense against Lio's Brotherhood stablemate on Sunday.
- Testimony of Truth called Veronica Moon soft, citing her voluntarily releasing her hold en route to losing the championship and falling in two consecutive matches in the Best of Three series. On Sunday at Nuclear Winter, it would be time to face her Truth as the two would meet in the first ever No Mercy match.
