In The Toxic Waltz main event, a 10 man gauntlet match to determine the number one contender for the NECW Triple Crown Championship, it was a night of surprising match ups. The rules were that the loser of each fall picked the winner’s next opponent. Each fall took place under no disqualification rules.
The first two men to start were picked at random by NECW officials prior to the first bell. Surprisingly enough, tag team partners Alex Payne and Davey Loomis were selected to face each other. Loomis took the victory relying on his quickness and amateur skills. Payne was disappointed, but proud of his partner and chose “The Talent” T.J. Richter as the next opponent.
