Rudy Switchblade (w/ Jessie Godderz) vs. Sam Shaw (w/Alex Silva). Rudy grabs a mic and tells Jessie that last week doesn't count, because he wasn't there and his opponent isn't even a worthwhile competitor. He wears board shorts and DC shoes. Jessie grabs the mic and says that if Rudy gets beat, they will put the titles on the line at SNS. Shaw comes out on fire as Jessie tries to interfere. Silva chases him around the ring and to the back. The distraction allows Rudy to take advantage by throwing Shaw shoulder first into the steel ringpost. Rudy works over the shoulder, but Shaw fights back and hits some dropkicks. He hits the backbreaker/neckbreaker combo and goes up top for Breaking Point, but Jessie runs back out and grabs his leg. Silva is close behind and pulls Jessie off the apron and he crashes to the floor. Rudy charges after Shaw, but Shaw leaps over Rudy and rolls him up for the 3. WINNER: SHAW by pinfall. MY TAKE: The Gutcheckers have their tag title shot at SNS. Can they bring home the gold against the Best Team Ever? Shaw & Silva are ready to electrify.
