Akira Tozawa & The Brian Kendrick def. Drew Gulak & Gentleman Jack Gallagher in a Street Fight
When Drew Gulak & Gentleman Jack Gallagher turned their backs on The Brian Kendrick and laid him out in a savage attack several weeks ago, The Man with a Plan was left with no option but to join forces with his longtime rival, Akira Tozawa. With the animosity between the two duos reaching a fever pitch, a tag team Street Fight was only appropriate.
Gulak and Gallagher weren’t dressed in traditional ring gear, as they instead opted to keep their suits on and prepare to deliver an all-business beatdown. However, their opponents came ready for action with Tozawa sporting his typical ring gear and Kendrick revealing a clean-shave, new jacket and new gear reminiscent of his early days in WWE.
Tozawa and Kendrick charged down the entrance ramp, meeting their opponents halfway, and the all-out brawl commenced. Kendrick and Tozawa showed no mercy for their opponents early in the match, as their Street Fight experience – including against each other – played to their advantage. Tozawa and Kendrick immediately brought a table into the equation, but Gulak and Gallagher – the self-proclaimed Submission Commission – fended off their opponents before returning the table back underneath the ring and taunting the WWE Universe by saying there would be no tables.
With numerous weapons such as garbage cans, chairs and even a broom in play, Gulak and Gallagher brutalized their opponents with anything that wasn’t nailed down. Showing no mercy in and out of the ring, The Submission Commission took pleasure in dishing out punishment, finding whatever was available – such as a mop and bucket – to increase the savagery.
Kendrick and Tozawa battled back, and the chaos continued to intensify when Gulak battered The Stamina Monster with a microphone. Tozawa retaliated by leveling The Philadelphia Stretcher with a punch before decimating Gallagher inside the ring and tossing a steel chair at both. Tozawa and Kendrick then tied Gulak to the ring post with a bungie cord, unleashing a series of chops until Gallagher made the save with a garbage can.
Gallagher took down Tozawa with a jaw-dropping kick, and as Gulak pushed The Stamina Monster forward in an office chair, The Submission Commission returned to the ring, trying to force their opponents into tapping out. As Gulak placed Kendrick on the top rope, Tozawa came to the rescue before launching himself at a retreating Gulak and being countered with a garbage can.
Gulak was also taken out by his own desperation move, leaving Gallagher to go after Kendrick. As the British Superstar ascended the ropes to deal with The Man with a Plan, Kendrick countered and nailed his nemesis with an explosive Sliced Bread No. 2 from the top to win the match.
