Angel Garza has the sort of innate ability for sports-entertainment that only comes with being a third-generation luchador. He also has an ego the size of the Rio Grande, and unfortunately for him, there are few things Pete Dunne does better stomp holes in Superstars with outsized egos.

Although Garza held his own against the longest-reigning WWE U.K. Champion in history, he lost focus anytime there was a chance to bask in the adulation of his admirers. The grizzled brawler from Birmingham, England, who is notoriously impatient when it comes to those kinds of antics, made Garza pay whenever he grew preoccupied with showing off his movie-star good looks.

In the bout’s final moments, Garza took a beat too long to showboat before springing off the ropes with a quebrada. The lapse in judgment proved critical, as Dunne caught the descending Garza in a triangle hold and then splayed Garza’s fingers like a pair of pliers to force the tapout.
