Rich Swann def. TJP in 2-out-of-3 Falls Match
Before the 2-out-of-3 Falls Match got underway, Rich Swann reminded TJP that the bout came at the cost of their friendship. Believing that their friendship meant nothing to The Duke of Dab, Swann said there would be no handshakes or forgiveness when the dust settled.
As TJP made his way to the ring, Swann immediately attacked, leaping to the outside of the ring and taking down his opponent. The Fil-Am Flash quickly turned the tables and attacked aggressively as the match officially began. TJP was relentless, methodically attacking outside the ring, trying to do as much damage as possible.
Back inside the squared circle, TJP applied his patented kneebar, but Swann incredibly reversed the hold and scored a pinfall, giving him a one-fall lead.
Despite his anger for being caught off-guard, The Duke of Dab remained focused on taking apart his former friend. Swann struggled to mount an effective offense, but TJP took his time with his strikes and took the opportunity to show off a bit as well.
Ever resilient, Swann remained in the battle, using his incredible agility to counter an overconfident TJP. However, the familiarity of the former WWE Cruiserweight Champions was on display with a series of near-falls, counters and an impactful double clothesline taking them both down.
Clearly exhausted, both Superstars continued to strike, pulling out all the stops to score a victorious fall. As Swann attempted to ascend the ropes, The Duke of Dab stopped him and applied the kneebar, but Swann again showed his perseverance, grabbing the rope and breaking the hold.
Battling back and forth with empty gas tanks, Swann managed to muster the energy to take TJP down one last time before executing the incredible Phoenix Splash for a second pinfall, the decisive victory.
