No-Disqualification Match: Demonic Flamita vs. Rey Horus
(One fall to a finish)

The former MexiSquad teammates went after each other with ferocity from the opening bell. Horus attempted a slingshot move onto Flamita on the floor, but Flamita nailed him with a chair in mid-air. Flamita tossed Horus into the barricade twice and dropped him on a chair on the apron. Flamita set up a chair in the corner and whipped Horus into it. Horus eventually gained possession of the chair and threw it at Flamita’s face, knocking him out of the ring.

Horus hit a tornado DDT on Flamita on the floor, rammed him into the barricade and nailed him in the back with a chair. Back inside the ring, Horus executed an overhead throw into the corner and covered Flamita for a near fall. Flamita hit a butterfly backbreaker for a near fall. Flamita hit Spanish Fly, but Horus answered with a tornado DDT. Flamita hit another Spanish Fly, and Horus again answered with a tornado DDT.

As Flamita and Horus jockeyed for position on the top rope, Flamita hit Spanish Fly, sending both of them crashing through a table on the floor. Flamita rolled Horus into the ring and covered him for a two count. Flamita hit a corkscrew moonsault/450 combination for the win in 12:08.

With this hard-fought win over his rival, coupled with a big victory in a Six-Way Mayhem Match at Glory By Honor over the weekend, Flamita has a lot of momentum heading into the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Sept. 12, where he faces ROH World Champion Bandido, Brody King and EC3 in a four-way match for the title.
