Grand Championship Match: Drew Galloway vs Mahabali Shera
Because when I think high-level wrestling strategist, I think Mahabali F’n Shera. Bell rings and Shera quickly gets a schoolboy rollup and a backslide for a pair of two counts, Galloway goes for the Future Shock, but Shera picks the legs and gets a jackknife rollup for 2. Galloway decides to just start unloading on Shera, but Shera pops him over with a thing that kind of looks like a powerslam where Shera forgot to go down with Drew. Drew goes to the top, but Shera tosses him off, then picks him up for something that looked like he was either going for a Samoan drop or running powerslam, but hadn’t decided, so just kind of balanced Drew on his head. Drew gets the advantage when they go to the floor, Drwe charges and Shera pops him up for something, but apparently forgot quite what he had in mind and Drew just comes down on his feet, so Drew covers by dropping him on the barricade. They go back inside, the bell rings, but Shera hits a Sky High anyway, appearing to drop Drew on his pelvis instead of his back like he’s supposed to.
Shera wins Round 1 on a split decision, so Drew flattens Shera with a big boot as soon as Round 2 starts and begins hammering him, then hits an overhead release suplex for 2. Shera fires up out of nowhere and hits a pop-up powerslam for 2, but Drew headbutts him and connects with a charging forearm. Shera dodges a top rope move, Drew escapes a Sky High and hits the Claymore kick followed by the Future Shock DDT for the win.
Winner: Drew Galloway

Grand Championship Match: Moose vs Drew Galloway
The bell rings, and we’re off with Round 1. They match power with shoulderblocks, they trade chops, neither man gets an advantage, and Moose drills Galloway in the face with a dropkick. Galloway gets a boot to Moose’s face, ducks a clothesline, goes for a crossbody, and Moose catches him and hits a fallaway slam. Galloway dodges a corner charge and hits a short piledriver for 2. Drew calls Moose a son of a bitch and slaps him in the face, and they trade shots as the clock winds down to end the round. Borash announces that Drew Galloway wins the first round, and the second round is up after the commercial.
We’re back, and round 2 goes to the floor almost immediately. They trade shots, Drew tries a charge and runs right into a bicycle kick from Moose. Galloway nails Moose back and gives him an AA onto the ring apron. Moose isn’t amused, and powerbombs Drew on the apron in retaliation. Moose collapses after delivering the move, and both men are down on the floor. They both barely beat the count with about a minute and a half left, and Moose hits a pop-up powerbomb, senton, but misses the Lionsault. Drew gets the Iron Maiden with 45 seconds left, and Moose is fighting to hang on…he gets to his feet, but Galloway takes him back down and Moose avoids tapping until the bell rings.
Borash announces that the judges called the second round for Moose. I don’t know where they got that, and even the announcers agree with me. They trade blows in the middle of the ring, Drew blocks the Game Changer, Moose hits a big boot, Galloway responds with one of his own, Drew comes off the top and flies right into a dropkick from Moose. Galloway blocks another Game Changer, mule kicks Moose in the ding ding, and Moose goes down. The ref stops the clock to check on Moose and deducts a point from Galloway. Moose makes it to his feet, the ref restarts the match, and Galloway immediately hits the Claymore for the win.
Winner and NEW Grand Champion: Drew Galloway
