The title match will take place at the next special, CLASH of the BRAZEN Champions! A special four-match show in two weeks with all of BRAZEN's titles on the line! After the show, BRAZEN Matchmaker Capital Punishment made the following matches official based on the tournament and fallout of the weekend!

--Rain City Ronin fought to a draw several weeks ago against current champions Les Enfants Terribles of High Flyer IV and Archer Silver, and won a four way elimination match. By this right, Les Enfants Terribles will defend the BRAZEN Tag Team Champions against Rain City Ronin and this time, there must be a winner!

--Due to having two separate victories in a six-man tag on the last Double Shot as well as bumping him from the RISE tournament in Quarter-Finals action, Leyenda de Ocho will take on the man that attacked him after his semi-finals match: BRAZEN Onslaught Champion Michael Van Warren!

--Lastly, "One Shot" Jack Halcyon might have lost in his opening round match on Night One, but bounced back with a HUGE win over the first-ever BRAZEN Champion Reinhardt Hoffman! He has made an open challenge to defend at CLASH of the BRAZEN Champions and RISE Finalist Declan "DEC4L" Alexander stepped up to the plate, showing despite the loss, he isn't done yet! He made it all the way to the end of the RISE Tournament so fifteen minutes will be a cakewalk.
