8 Man Tag Team Elimination Match

British Tag Team Champions Greedy Souls, Lucian Phillips & Connor Mills vs. Sunset Machine, David Francisco & Michael Oku

We started this match off with a brawl with both teams before the bell with action spilling around the venue and up to the bar. We’d had dives from David Francisco & Chuck Mambo, before Michael Oku’s Fosbury flop wiped out the pile as a froggy crossbody from Oku to Connor Mills finally got the match underway.

A rana and a dropkick sends Mills flying, as Oku spear keeps him before Mills broke free and tagged out. Brendan White & Francisco come in with Francisco winding up White en route to a clothesline in the corner and an inside cradle for a two count.

Francisco adds a clothesline as Lucian Phillips tagged in to trade shoulder blocks. Phillips plants Francisco with a slam as TK Cooper came in to rattle Phillips with Dusty punches only to run into a spinebuster. Mambo’s in next & he hits some clotheslines were shrugged off, as Phillips wild back elbow and powerbomb prompted Mambo to tag out to Oku.

Oku makes a dent against Phillips, at least until his crossbody was caught but Oku wriggles out to hit a dropkick, only to get caught with a standing F5 from Phillips. Francisco tags in and was bulldozed with a clothesline from Phillips. A 2nd one looks to follow but Francisco ducks and back body dropped Francisco over the top rope to the floor for our first elimination.

A furious Phillips refused to go to the back, and after Connor Mills & Greedy Souls distracted the referee, he got some revenge after laying out Francisco with a chair shot. In came Mills to pick up the pieces, waiting for Francisco to get back up so he could pin him after a head kick.

Oku’s in to go after Mills with a superkick, which garners a near fall, before Mills kicked away a half crab. They come to blows, leading to Oku hitting a Cactus clothesline to eliminate each other. We’re down to the Greedy Souls & Sunshine Machine, with both of them squaring off. A double clothesline drops White while Danny Jones takes a pair of back elbows as Sunset Machine looked to surge ahead.

Things settle down with Cooper charging out of the corner with clotheslines to Greedy Souls before a slam from Cooper led to an elbow drop from Mambo for a two count. Chops from Mambo take White into the corner for some mudhole stomping, before Mambo eliminated himself as he vaulted over the top rope to the floor to hit Brendan White with the stun gun.

With Mambo gone, TK Cooper is by himself and almost lost to a roll up as the referee had given up enforcing tags in this one. Settling down, White stays in with Cooper sending him into the corner as Greedy Souls exchange quick tags while stomping away on Cooper. Cooper hits back with a double clothesline, then went corner 2 corner on Greedy Souls following with an Exploder to White as Cooper.

Cooper evades a Soul Breaker and manages to eliminate Danny Jones with an O’Connor roll but ran into a Brendan White backbreaker and Twister suplex straight after that. White charges at TK by the ropes, only to get low bridged & that gets the win.

Winners: Sunset Machine, David Francisco & Michael Oku (17:37) 

After the match Greedy Souls hit the ring to beat up TK Cooper some more before Chuck Mambo appeared on the balcony and hit a crossbody to Greedy Souls sending them packing as Sunshine Machine stood tall to close Live In Southampton.
