As we come back from commercial Lashley is in control, stomping on Jeff in the ring now then hits a neckbreaker for a near fall. Lashley then tries to keep Jeff grounded and does for a short time until Jeff fights back, only for Lashley to drop him with a back elbow. Jeff fights back then dropkicks Lashley repeatedly for a near fall before hitting a Twist of Fate. Jeff then goes up top for a Swanton Bomb and hits it, but Lashley somehow kicks out. Jeff hits another Swanton Bomb, but Lashley gets his foot on the rope then rolls out of the ring. Once they're outside Jeff whips Lashley into the steps then uses the steps to do a running shotgun dropkick to Lashley who's against the railing. Jeff goes for a flip from inside the ring to the floor, but Lashley rolls underneath the ring then rolls Jeff back into it. Lashley then hits Jeff with a spear for the pin and the win.
