Put then it started to drags. I can't end until everyone hits all they're moves


Theory snatched up Ruff and used a finisher called This Is the Way. Theory then covered Ruff for a pinfall.


Tommaso Ciampa defeated Tyler Rust 

Ciampa pinned Rust in a really good match. Rust was impressive, and he had a very competitive match with Ciampa. This bout plays into the ongoing feud between Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher.
