They go to the outside and Suzuki chops Coffey repeatedly around the ring then hits Coffey in the head with a sprite bottle before choking him on the barricade. As the referee makes Suzuki back off, El Desperado his fellow Suzuki-gun stable mate stomps on Coffey. Suzuki goes for a chancery then goes for a guillotine choke, but Coffey powers out. Coffey hits a springboard cross body for a close 2 count. Suzuki drops Coffey with a stiff strike for a quick 2 count.
