In round one of the tournament, Zelina Vega defeated Toni Storm in a rather underwhelming matchup. Going into the match, Vega was the favorite one. Vega overpowered Storm from the start. During the final moments, Storm executed a hip strike as Vega backed up into the corner.

Storm climbed to the top, but Vega yanked her down by the hair. Storm grabbed Vega and threw a gruesome bomb at her, but Vega rolled her up for the win.

Next up, Liv Morgan went head to head against Carmella. The bell rang and Carmella bailed to get her new Leatherface mask. She got in the ring and Liv tackled her and rained punches on her. Liv hits a roll-up for two, then Carmella transitions into Code of Silence, but Liv rips at her mask to get her off.

Liv slams Carmella for a two-count as Mella got her foot on the rope. Carmella kicks Morgan and snaps her on the top rope, then hits a super-kick for the win.
