12 #1 Contender's Match
n the main event, a battle of the past two Iron 8 Champions and for #1 Contendership, 5th Annual Iron 8 Champion “The Golden Greek” Alex Arion with Sean Gorman battled the 6th Annual Iron 8 Champion Antonio “The Promise” Thomas. The two went back and forth for nearly twenty minutes until the match spilled outside. As “The Promise” threw Arion back into the ring and went to climb in after him, Brett Adams returned to ringside and held the leg of Thomas getting him counted out. Thomas, enraged, realized what the “Rock God” had done and chased him out of the building. Making good on his promise, Max Bauer hobbled to the ring to attack “The Golden Greek”. Bauer leveled Arion with a big boot. Sean Gorman attempted to interject himself to no avail. As the “Enforcer” went to deck Gorman, DC Dillinger ran out to keep him from punching Gorman. Arion used that opening to again attack Bauer. The locker room cleared and began to attempt to separate them. Sheldon Goldberg then announced that in order to settle this feud once and for all, he needed to do two things. First, he needed to put a referee in there that wouldn’t be intimidated by either man… and that man was DC Dillinger. As everyone, but Dillinger looked shocked, Sheldon followed up that the match would take place in a steel cage.
