Taking a moment to recover on the outside, Nese traded verbal jabs with Rush before returning to the fight and taking out his opponent.

The Man of the Hour criticized Garza for not watching the match but also continued to claim Nese was envious of Rush. In control of the match, Nese continued to trade verbal barbs with Rush, but his split attention worked against The Premier Athlete.

Mendoza battled back and pushed his opponent to the limit but was unable to secure the victory. As Garza continued to tweet to Rush, the champion grew more impressed with his potential challengers inside the ring. Taking down Mendoza on the outside, Nese made sure to take the time to taunt Rush. The Man of the Hour returned the taunts, which allowed Mendoza to recover and roll up Nese to pick up the victory.
