Lee whips Johnny away when he tries to lock up and tosses him away when Johnny goes for a headlock before they dodge each other's kicks and Johnny falls back into the corner wide eyed as Keith smirks.

Keith catches Johnny when he goes for a head scissors and sends Johnny into the apron before Johnny tries to roll back into the ring to escape and Keith drags him back out before Johnny tries to leave out of the front door on the stage. Keith sends Johnny face first into the door and chops him before tossing Johnny down the ramp and back to ringside before Johnny rolls back in and Johnny stomps Keith when he's getting back in, Gargano trying his best to ground the powerhouse Lee. Keith gets to his feet and throws Johnny across the ring before dropping him with a left hand and Johnny rocks Keith with an enzuigiri before taking him down punches him against the ropes.

Johnny locks in a chin bar before hitting a running chop in the corner and punching Keith in the corner before rocking the champion with a boot and stomping on Keith's hand that he injured on NXT before focusing on it solely for several minutes while playing to the NXT Superstar crowd at ringside. Back in the ring Johnny gets a quick two count before taking Keith's back who gets to his feet with Johnny on his back and Johnny drops him with an elbow to the back of the neck before hitting several knee drops for two. Johnny hits Keith with right hands when he's up to his knees before Keith grabs Johnny's wrist and drops him with several wrist lock clotheslines and counters a slingshot spear into a backbreaker for two. Keith goes to lift Johnny who slides out of the back and hits Keith with forearms before Keith drops him with a right hand and goes for a single armed powerbomb that Johnny turns into an armbar and Keith turns him inside out for two. Johnny gets a near fall off of a sunset flip before Keith counters the Gargano Escape and Johnny superkicks him before countering a jack hammer for a near fall.

Johnny superkicks Keith before Lee hits a pop-up slam and Johnny rolls out of the ring and falls onto the floor to avoid the cover before Lee rolls Johnny back into the ring and Johnny hits a suicide dive into a tornado DDT onto the floor. Johnny tries to lift Keith back into the ring, but he can't before he breaks the counter and pleads with the referee before he goes back outside and Keith launches him into the air and through the plexiglass shield wall set up on top of the barricade at ringside. Keith brings Johnny back down to the ring before Candice comes out and distracts him, Mia coming out behind her before she chases Candice into the ring and they end up brawling at ringside.
