Hideo Itami def. Gentleman Jack Gallagher
The heated rivalry between Hideo Itami and Gentleman Jack Gallagher came to a head as the two Superstars collided inside the squared circle. Before the match, Itami revealed that he respected The Brian Kendrick and his injury was an unfortunate accident, but the Japanese Superstar did not respect Gentleman Jack Gallagher.
As soon as the opening bell sounded, Itami charged forward and laid out his nemesis with a devastating kick. Seeking retribution for Gallagher’s brutal attack with a steel pipe, Itami channeled his anger into precise and powerful strikes that kept the British Superstar on defense. Desperate for a break while outside the ring, Gallagher crawled underneath the ring to emerge on the other side and launch a sneak-attack on his opponent.
The unorthodox strategy paid off, and Gallagher began to rely on his unique technical ability to take control of the match. Gallagher continued to manipulate his opponent’s limbs to maximize punishment, but the resilience of Itami reigned supreme, and he battled back, regaining momentum.
Catching a second wind, Itami battled back with relentless fury, taking down Gallagher with a powerful strike to the jaw. Firmly in control of the contest, the Japanese Superstar executed a unique and innovate new maneuver to secure the win.
