Rampage Rules 4-Way Match to determine NWA RPW Television Title’s Number 1 Contender
“Do or Die” Chip Day vs Mike Posey vs Patrick Bentley vs Corey Hollis
Referee: Dustin Robinson
Chip Day and Hollis start this match off and perform VERY obvious rest holds and weak moves to act like they’re competing, but obviously displeasing the crowd. The match being contested as Rampage Rules as opposed to a strait 4-Way match was a bit questionable. The match turns into a dance off complete with jazz music with Referee Dustin Robinson sitting back agitated. Some of the crowd actually gets into the dance off but go back to booing when the music stops. Doc Gayton comes out and gets a mic and informs Approved that the loser of the match will be suspended and if no action takes place they all would be suspended. Immediately after that Approved members start turning on each other and the match gets serious. They get mad at each other while justifying that they don’t want to be suspended. Chip goes to kick Posey, who grabs and throws his foot off, but spins around and delivers it to Corey Hollis. He then throws Posey from the ring and pins Hollis for the win.
