Super Indy Ladder Match Qualifier
Icarus vs. Façade vs. Samuray Del Sol

Icarus uses Joey Ryan’s theme music for some reason. The winner of this match advances to a four way ladder match in December for the vacant Super Indy championship. Logan Shulo and Matt Cross are already set for that bout. Icarus superkicks Sol and puts a wristlock on Façade. Sol huracanrana’s Icarus. Everyone goes for a quick pin and fails. Icarus flips Façade and Sol out of a triple test of strength. Façade and Sol send him out with a dropkick. Sol springboards back and headscissors Façade to the corner. Icarus shoves Façade off the top rope to the floor and snaps Sol’s neck on the top rope for two. Icarus suplexes him thrice for a two count. Sol headscissors Icarus and wheelbarrows him into a two count. Façade knocks Icarus and Sol down with a springboard senton. Façade springboard moonsaults onto both of them and pins Sol for two. Façade follows them to the floor with a springboard corkscrew splash. Sol flies onto Icarus and Façade with a Fozberry Flop. Icarus superkicks Sol back in the ring. Façade springboard roundhouse kicks Sol. Icarus steals the pin for two. Façade enzuigiri’s Icarus. Sol hits a standing shiranui and Icarus breaks the pin. He delivers the Blu-ray to Sol. Façade breaks that pin. Façade drops Icarus with the Michinoku Driver. He puts him in the Cattle Mutiliation. Icarus taps out at 7:36. Façade’s stuff is so contrived and he did so many springboards that they meant nothing. Icarus and Sol did fine but the focus was on Façade. He’s the winner so that makes sense but this opening the show set a not-so-great tone. **
