It’s time to find out the new #1 contender as we see the finals of the tournament from a month ago. The finals are down to PCO and Marty Scurll in a battle of Villain Enterprises, even if one of them has not signed a new deal and the winner is pretty obvious. I’m not sure what else to expect but my expectations are not high. Let’s get to it.
We open with a look at the path to the tournament finals.

#1 Contenders Tournament Finals: PCO vs. Marty Scurll
They’re both part of the Six Man Tag Team Champions.Before the match, Scurll suggests they wrestle a clean match…and then hits him with the umbrella for two. PCO shrugs it off and hits the standing splash as we take a break. Back with Scurll hitting an enziguri on top and scoring with an Iconoclasm.
They head to the floor with PCO going into the barricade so Scurll can pose a bit. It’s back inside for a chop off but PCO goes with a powerbomb and spear to take over. The chokeslam sets up the Swanton for two more and they head right back to the floor with PCO setting up a table. Scurll gets off of it before PCO can dive and sends PCO through it instead.
We take another break and come back with PCO hitting a powerslam but the referee was bumped. Cue Brody King for a Boss Man Slam on PCO to give Scurll two. Scurll hits PCO by mistake though and walks into a sidewalk slam for two. The PCOsault is broken up and the ref gets bumped again, but it’s Flip Gordon to kick PCO down. A belt shot gives Scurll two so PCO flip dives onto King and Gordon. The PCOsault connects for two but the Cannonball to the apron misses. Well not the apron but Scurll at least. PCO is fine enough to hit a clothesline and the PCOsault for the pin and the title shot at 14:33.
Result: PCO b. Marty Scurll – PCOsault (14:33)
