The match also featured King Kendo, Rishpal Singh, Ricky Knight Jr, Brad Slayer, PJ Knight, Sonny Smasher, Big J Johnson, Alex Drooge, Hot Stuff, Onkar Singh and Paddy Taggart. During the match, RKJ was pulled over the top rope by the Phantom.

– Ricky Knight demanded to know whether the elimination order meant that he would be facing King Kendo in one of the two WAW32 semi final matches at Epic Studios in Norwich on Saturday 8th December. At the same time, Kendo and Hallows squared up to each other and the locker room made their way out to separate the two. MC Jason Cross informed Ricky that the rules stated the winner of the match would face fourth place while the runner up would face third place, meaning that he would be taking on Rishpal Singh in the semi final whilst Kendo will face Hallows. Ricky demanded that the rules be changed but Cross reminded him that the rules had been set in stone by the WAWCC and can’t be changed.
