Swerve Strickland made his entrance accompanied out to the
ring by multi-platinum recording artist Jim Jones.


Swerve and Ospreay exchanged elbow strikes in the center of
the ring. Ospreay and Swerve were looking for kill shots
early on, and the crowd rose to their feet chanting “A-E-W!
A-E-W!”


Ospreay grabbed the ropes, elevated over the top and landed

there was no ref to make the count. Don Callis appeared at
ringside with a screwdriver, trying to hand it to Will.
Prince Nana shoved Callis to the arena floor, but Will had
the screwdriver in his hands.

Prince Nana shove Don Callis. Ospreay jumped out of the ring
and put his hands on Prince Nana, threatening to use the

thoughts, and tossed the screwdriver down.

respect.
