ONE NIGHT ONLY: Joker's Wild 2015 Results
Dark Match) Manik & James Storm defeated Ross & Marshall Von Erich via roll-up with the tights by Manik.
They did the opening to the show. They have a rig set up on stage with names to be drawn out of to select the tag team partners for the tournament. One competitor will win $100,000 tonight. There will be eight tag matches and a battle royal with all of the winners. Before each match, they drew the names out.
Match 1) Jessie Godderz & Robbie E defeated Mr. Anderson & Al Snow. Anderson tried to distract the ref so Al Snow could use head but the Bromans took advantage and Robbie rolled up Snow with the tights for the win.
Match 2) Awesome Kong & Rockstar Spud defeated Zema Ion & Samuel Shaw. Pretty short and lots of comedy in the match. Kong & Spud won with a splash by Spud on Zema while Spud was standing on Kong's shoulders.
After, Kong ended up kissing Spud and Spud fell over from joy. She carried Spud to the back.
Match 3) Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards defeated Austin Aries & Bobby Roode with a double roll up. Aries & Roode tried to do better than each other with strikes and moves during the match.
After the match, the crowd chanted That Was Awesome. Aries & Roode teased a double handshake with the Wolves, and both gave the Wolves eyerakes and Aries said "that was awesome."
EC3 cut a promo before the match commenting on the coincidence of The Wolves and The Bromans teaming so he said he would get Tyrus. He got Crazzy Steve and one of his opponents ended up being Tyrus.
Match 4) Crazzy Steve & EC3 defeated Tyrus & Crazzy Steve. Ended up being more of a tag match with traditional partners. Tyrus hit Knux with the thumb/spike on Knux allowing EC3 and Steve to win.
Match 5) Bram & Eric Young defeated Tommy Dreamer & Magnus following an implant DDT by Bram on Dreamer.
Match 6) Gunner & James Storm defeated Kenny King & Chris Melendez. Some miscommunication again. Gunner ended up spearing Melendez inadvertently and Storm tossed Gunner out and pinned Chris so Storm & Gunner could win. Gunner attended to Chris after.
Match 7) Gail Kim & Sonjay Dutt defeated Tigre Uno & Manik following an Eat Defeat from Gail and a diving splash from Sonjay on Tigre.
Match 8) Lashley & Khoya defeated The Great Sanada and Abyss. James Storm came out and brought Khoya to the back turning it into a handicap match of sorts. Lashley won 2-on-1 via a spear on Sanada.
