Kalisto def. Gentleman Jack Gallagher via disqualification
Unable to regain the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at Survivor Series Kickoff, Kalisto was poised to reclaim his focus and work his way back into the championship picture. Standing in his way was Gentleman Jack Gallagher and The Brian Kendrick. Battling Gallagher in one-on-one competition, Kalisto struggled to mount a consistent offense early in the match, especially while having to keep a close eye on Kendrick.
Gallagher tactically attacked, using his unorthodox and technical abilities – not to mention his cruelty – to keep his high-flying opponent on defense. Methodically applying various holds, all designed to inflict maximum punishment, the British Superstar remained unrelenting.
The former WWE Cruiserweight Champion persevered and fought through the pain, catching a second wind and taking the fight right back to Gallagher. Refusing to give his opponent a moment to recover from fast-paced strikes, Kalisto dropped Gallagher with the Salida del Sol and prepared to score the pinfall.
However, The Brian Kendrick charged into the ring and kicked Kalisto – thus saving his ally, but causing a disqualification. With the match over, Gallagher and Kendrick unloaded their rage on Kalisto with a brutal beatdown.
