Oney Lorcan def. Danny Burch
NXT’s resident slugger, Bostonian Oney Lorcan, might have found a kindred spirit in hard-nosed East Londoner Danny Burch.
The two scrappy, rough-and-tumble veterans threw down with glee. Burch was the first to unload a punch, socking Lorcan in the face before collapsing him with the Tower of London. Lorcan responded with a European uppercut and a series of strikes until the resilient British brawler returned fire with a lariat and a powerbomb for a two-count. Yet, Lorcan, perhaps finding inspiration in one of his early trainers, Lance Storm, rolled Burch into a single-leg Boston crab to gain the submission victory.
Burch was dignified in defeat and shook Lorcan’s hand, though he also made clear that he wants to face the renowned toughie “one more time” — an invitation that Lorcan seemed happy to accept.
