The show opened up with the arrival of FFP World Champion Matt Kraven. Kraven said that last week Matt Evanston got more lucky than he had gotten in his entire life, by defeating Kraven. Matt said that he was actually glad to see Evanston win, so that he could give him the beating he deserved at Desperate Measures. Kraven then said that Nathan Caine had come out to help Evanston last week, which was admirable, but Kraven said that if Nathan decided to interfere in their match at Desperate Measures, that Caine would end up getting the same beating that Evanston will get. Kraven said that he knew the right people in the right places, obviously referencing his wife Amanda, the owner and president of FFP, and he said that if he needed to he could get a stipulation put on the match where if Nathan came to ringside, Evanston would immediately be disqualified.
Matt Evanston now stepped out onto the entrance ramp. He said that he didn’t need anyone’s help to defeat Matt Kraven, which he proved last week at Tuesday Night Wrestling. Evanston then told Kraven to enjoy his time with the title, because in a few short days he would be taking it from Kraven, and beginning a new era in FFP, the Era of Evanston.
The scene cut backstage where we saw the new women’s tag team Unattainable. Beth Tilly and Sophia Ishmael talked about their win last week over the team of Kemina and Firefly. They said that no matter who it would be, they would beat them, whether it was Hunt Enterprises, Jaqueline Aulstrike and Tabitha Mullins, or the Women’s Tag Team Champions Lipstick & Powerbombs. About that time, Lizzy Kraven and Olivia Lee stepped into focus. Lizzy said that her and Olivia had some frustration to get out due to Jaqueline and Tabitha stealing their titles, and tonight if Unattainable wanted to face them, they’d gladly give them a proper welcome to FFP. Beth and Sophia seemed hesitant, but agreed to the match.
The scene cut to ringside where Quinn Delaney made her return to Full Force Pro. The Minneapolis crowd cheered as Quinn stepped into the ring. She took a microphone and said that tonight, she was so happy to be back home in FFP, that she would issue an open challenge to anyone who wanted the chance to face off with her. However, the mood changed when Masina stepped out onto the entrance ramp. Masina walked down the isle with a smile on her face. She stepped into the ring and went toe-to-toe with Quinn. Masina said that she would gladly take on the redhead.
Quinn Delaney vs Masina
Quinn started off the match with some hard right hands, but the blows didn’t seem to affect Masina at all. After a couple of forearms, Quinn hit the ropes. But after hitting the ropes, she hit the mat, hard, from a Masina clothesline. Quinn tried to get up as quickly as she could, but she was flattened with another clothesline. Masina then pulled Quinn up by her hair, and hoisted her up in the air by her neck. She held her up for a moment, then tossed her to the mat. Delaney was hurt. And she was hurting even more when Masina hit her with a devastating leg drop. Quinn tried to fight her way up, but Masina instead pulled her up again by her hair. Masina then delivered a huge powerbomb in the center of the ring. Quinn was out. Masina made the cover. 1…2…3. Masina won the match, impressively. Meanwhile, Quinn Delaney’s FFP comeback was not quite the way she envisioned it.

Rematch from Last Week
Cooper Albright vs Trent Wolfe
Last week these two wrestled a phenomenal match. Back and forth, with the crowd into it the whole time. This match, was exactly the same, only better. Close pin attempts, high impact moves. Trent Wolfe hit an impressive frankensteiner off the top for a two count. Cooper fight back, hitting strikes before flooring Trent with a running STO and a senton. Cooper then went to the middle rope and hit a flying headbutt for a two count. He took Trent up onto the turnbuckles and hit a falcon arrow from the middle rope. Again, Cooper got a two count.
Trent fought back, hitting a couple of kicks and a spinning backfist. Then, a spin wheel kick. He followed that up with a snap German suplex, but he kept his arms around Cooper, muscled him back up and hit a stalling German suplex. The Minneapolis crowd was loving it. So was Brian Young and Morgan Alexander. At one point both men took each other down with a clothesline at the same time. The referee began his count, but they got back to their feet and began slugging it out. Cooper missed a wild right which opened him up for another snap German suplex. As he got back up to one knee, Trent blasted him with a shining wizard. Wolfe then pulled Cooper back up and hit a dangerous brainbuster. Wolfe hooked Cooper’s leg and the referee slid into position to make the count. 1…2… kickout! The crowd went crazy! There was even a “fight forever” chant as the two wrestlers continued to tussle. Wolfe went for another shining wizard as Cooper struggled to get back to his feet, but this time he dodged the move. This opened Trent up for a reverse DDT. Cooper then pulled Trent up and muscled him onto his shoulders. He slammed him to the mat with a Death Valley Driver. But Albright wasn’t done there. Cooper pulled Trent up again, and set him up on the top turnbuckle. He climbed up on the ropes as well and picked Trent up on his shoulders yet again. This time, he delivered a Death Valley Driver from the middle turnbuckle! The crowd couldn’t believe it. Cooper then hooked Trent’s leg. 1…2…3! Cooper Albright had defeated Trent Wolfe in one hell of a match!
The scene cut backstage where Lenore Spade was being interviewed by Raquel St Claire about her match with Lux at Desperate Measures. Lenore said that Lux wasn’t here tonight because she was doing some photoshoot, and that obviously she wasn’t taking the match seriously. Lenore said that it will be an easy victory on a pay-per-view, which is fine because it’s easy money.
In the Ring
Aiden Conrad came out with Pandora on his arm. The two were dressed to the nines. Aiden told the crowd to look at Pandora and give her a standing ovation because she deserved it. Of course they booed, which made him yell at them more. Finally, Aiden got on to his point, which was that at Desperate Measures that he would undoubtedly defeat Anarchy and take back what is rightfully his, the FFP Adrenaline Championship. This brought Anarchy out, who laughed at Aiden and said that Aiden stood a snowball’s chance in hell of walking out of Desperate Measures as the new Adrenaline Champion. Aiden then dared Anarchy to come down to the ring and say it to his face, to which Anarchy gladly accepted. Aiden was hesitant, but went after Anarchy. Anarchy dodged the oncoming Aiden, and took him down with a t-bone suplex. Conrad rolled out of the ring as Anarchy stood back up with his arms raised. Pandora however was still in the ring. And she took the risk of splitting (or falling out of) her dress, and hit Anarchy with a loud open hand slap across the face. As Anarchy seemed to be debating on whether to react or not, Aiden slid back into the ring and took Anarchy down with a running knee to the back of the head. Conrad then hooked Anarchy’s head, and slammed him head first to the mat with a DDT. Conrad then stood up beside Pandora, holding his arms up in the air. Pandora picked up Anarchy’s championship and handed it to Aiden. He held it up and placed his foot on Anarchy’s head. Then he dropped the belt on Anarchy and the two left ringside.
Lipstick & Powerbombs vs Unattainable
Unattainable actually came out and grabbed the momentum early in the match. Morgan Alexander was sure that Unattainable was going to pull the upset, and continued putting over how attractive the two ladies were. Brian Young tried to explain to Morgan that good looks didn’t get you anywhere in the wrestling ring, but Morgan wasn’t having any of it. Olivia Lee really worked Beth Tilly over, until Beth caught Olivia with a jumping knee strike and tagged Sophia in. Olivia had the sense of mind to tag out as well, bringing Lizzy Kraven into the ring. Lizzy didn’t hold back, giving Sophia a beating, and slamming her to the mat with a belly-to-belly suplex. Kraven the set Sophia up for the Kraven Lariat. However, as she was getting ready to deliver the move, Jaqueline Aulstrike and Tabitha Mullins came out onto the entrance ramp. They were still in possession of Lizzy and Olivia’s Women’s Tag Team Titles. The two women held the titles in the air, daring Lipstick & Powerbombs to come and get them.
Lizzy turned her attention to Jaqueline and Tabitha, demanding that they come down to the ring right now. Olivia got into the ring to stand beside her partner, but before she could was hit with a cheap shot, a clothesline from behind by Beth Tilly. Beth then tossed Olivia out of the ring. Meanwhile, Sophia had gotten up on her hands and knees and crawled over to Lizzy. As Kraven stood, still distracted by her Desperate Measures opponents, Sophia rolled Lizzy up for the pin. The referee made the count as Lizzy was caught off guard. 1…2…3! Unattainable had defeated the Women’s Tag Team Champions!
Jaqueline and Tabitha shared a laugh on the ramp as Lizzy Kraven quickly got back to her feet. Unattainable scrambled out of the ring as Lizzy realized what had happened. Lizzy then demanded a microphone. She said that at Desperate Measures that her and Olivia were only wanting their titles back, but now…it was personal. Lizzy said that in their ladder match that they would absolutely hurt Jaqueline Aulstrike and Tabitha Mullins.

The camera cut to the crowd at ringside. Sitting in the front row was one of FFP’s newest signees as Amanda Kraven’s roster expansion, Carla Ray. The crowd cheered as Carla was shown at ringside, smiling and waving to the camera. Morgan Alexander seemed to be a big fan, talking about how hot Carla is.
The scene cut to Austin Briggs, who was backstage watching the replay of him busting Hiroki Ito open. Briggs laughed, and said that at Desperate Measures it would be just as easy to bust Ito back open. Briggs then said that after he defeated Hiroki this Sunday that he would go on to bigger and better things.
George Furst vs Hayden Flowers
Hayden Flowers was hands down the fan favorite. And the one with the most experience in the squared circle. But George Furst is a giant of a man. He’s strong, he’s powerful and he’s downright scary. Hayden landed a few solid shots, but George laid Flowers out. And after nearly dropping Hayden on the back of his head with a back suplex, the big man planted him into the mat with a chokeslam for the three count.
#1 Contender 4-Way Match
Head Trauma vs Jackson Detmer & Jason Ryan vs JJ Perry & Elijah King vs Miles Lynch & Duncan Wright Jr.
This was a back and forth match with all four teams enjoying having the upperhand. Jackson Detmer and Jason Ryan drew first blood, eliminating JJ Perry and Elijah King with a Spike Piledriver to JJ Perry. Head Trauma came in next, giving a beating to Jackson Detmer and then Jason Ryan. Eventually Miles Lynch and Duncan Wright Jr got the tag in and went after Head Trauma. Lynch and DW Jr, being friends with Matt Kraven, looked to be going on to wrestle for the FFP Tag Team Titles at Desperate Measures, but Head Trauma hit a total elimination on DW Jr for a three count.
The final two teams came down to Head Trauma and Detmer and Ryan. Detmer and Ryan quickly jumped into the ring and attacked Head Trauma, attempting to get a quick upperhand. Jackson Detmer hit a turnbuckle powerbomb on Khalid Tiko. Jason Ryan then tagged in and hit a spine buster for a two count. The match continued on, with Detmer and Ryan hitting a Spike Piledriver on Malik Tiko, but Khalid got into the ring to stop a pin attempt. Eventually Jackson and Jason clotheslines Khalid out of the ring, and keyed in on Malik again. After another devastating Spike Piledriver, they got the three count. Jackson Detmer and Jason Ryan would challenge Matt and Billy Rich for the FFP Tag Team Titles at Desperate Measures!

Odell Porter w/ Saraya Varro vs Logan Christopher
A fast paced back and forth match. A match definitely worth the main event spot, and the Minneapolis crowd was completely into it. Logan Christopher hit a couple high risk moves, including a phenomenal diving DDT onto Odell while Porter stood on the ring apron. The crowd couldn’t believe the move. Logan then went for the cover after muscling Odell back into the ring, but only got a two count. Odell turned the tide when Logan charged him but was caught with a superkick. As Logan stumbled backward, Odell rushed him and hit a running STO. Porter went for the pin, but got a two count.
Porter continued on the offensive, setting Logan up for a top rope frankensteiner, but Logan hit a couple of right hands, and wound up taking Odell down with an awesome sunset flip powerbomb for a close two count. The fans thought it was three. And Saraya looked noticeably nervous. Logan pulled Odell up and set him up for a piledriver or a powerbomb. But Odell reversed with a back body drop. Porter dropped to his knees as Logan went over the top rope. But unfortunately, Logan landed right on Saraya. Saraya crumbled underneath Logan. Obviously she was knocked clean out.
Odell was still down, pushing himself back up and not noticing his girlfriend down. The crowd stood in shock as Joey DeMarco rushed down the isle. Joey scooped Saraya up in his arms and rushed up the entrance ramp. Morgan Alexander said that Joey was such a nice guy for trying to care for her and take her to the medic, while Brian Young thought it was a mind game.
Porter got up in time to see Joey rushing off with his girlfriend in his arms. He started toward the ropes, but Logan had slid back into the ring and rolled Porter up. The referee made the count and Logan Christopher got the three count. Odell immediately rolled out of the ring and rushed up the entrance ramp. Obviously his girlfriend was more important to him than winning the match.
The camera hurried through the backstage area, finally getting a glimpse of Joey DeMarco. He had just arrived at the medic. He set Saraya down on a gurney and yelled for the medics to help her. As the medics began to tend to her, Joey grabbed her hand, audibly praying that she’d be alright. But as he spoke, Odell burst through the door and immediately took Joey down to the ground. The two began to sprawl on the hard concrete floor, trading punches as Saraya was on the gurney. Security entered the room and began trying to separate the two while medics continued working on the unconscious Saraya Varro.
