Shortly after the contest began, it spread outward, with 2.0 gaining control when they outscored Allen by the benefits of their numbers. However, Daniel Garcia was knocked out of the tie by Eddie Kingston after avenging a strong attack on John Moxley.
Darby Allen continued the brutal punishment in the match as he was at the end of a painful looking splices on his skateboard. 2.0 then turned his attention to the sting in the ring, launching a double power bomb through the table on the WCW legend.
Sting made no attack as he stood on his feet in just a few seconds, driving the crowd as expected. Icon then dropped Matt Lee and Nathan Parker with a double scorpion death drop. Finally, Icon closed the Scorpion Deathlock on both Lee and Nathan, and both came out quickly.
