Tyler Bate def. James Drake
Tyler Bate broke from Moustache Mountain for the night to compete in a singles match against James Drake. From the start, Drake went with his signature unpredictable approach and brought the aggression while attacking his opponent inside and outside the ring, a sequence that was highlighted by an earth-shattering dropkick in the corner that nearly took the former U.K. Champion’s head off and almost gave Drake the biggest win of his career.
Nevertheless, the resilient Bate would not abate, and after dodging Drake’s attack in the corner and repelling himself off the ropes for the familiar lariat in the final moments of the hard-fought match, Bate finished off his opponent with the Tyler Driver ‘97.
