After being defeated by Hideo Itami on the final WWE 205 Live of 2017, Gentleman Jack Gallagher demanded a rematch against The Japanese Superstar in an effort to avenge the injury his compatriot, The Brian Kendrick, suffered at the hands of Itami on Raw. The Man with a Plan suffered a fractured nose and orbital bone following a devastating Go To Sleep from Itami, and is sidelined for two months.
Gallagher’s brand of cruelty was quelled last week on WWE 205 Live, but he wasn’t going to make the same mistake twice. Attempting to attack Itami with his umbrella before the opening bell, The Japanese Superstar fought back and left Gallagher reeling. However, the British Superstar managed to retrieve William the Third and successfully level a charging Itami. Falling from the umbrella was a lead pipe, which Gallagher happily picked up and continued his attack until he was separated by officials coming to Itami’s aid.
Although Gallagher came up short in singles competition last week, he certainly showed Itami the punishment that comes with crossing Gallagher and Kendrick.
