The Wildcat defeated Craven Knyte in the opening match. Knyte was defeated even though he was wearing his Red Power Ranger trunks. Knyte actually makes all of his trunks and has started making gear for other wrestlers. Check out his instagram for examples of his work.

Big Sepp & Black Stallion defeated Scott Story & JD Bandit.
