Ilja Dragunov vs Saxon Huxley
Ilja rocks Saxon with an uppercut before Saxon hits a scoop slam and Saxon rocks Ilja with an uppercut before hitting a running cross body for a quick two count. Saxon locks in a rear chin lock before Ilja drives him into the corner to break the hold and punches and chops Saxon in the corner before rocking him with a knee. Ilja traps Saxon in the ropes and hits a suplex from the apron before hitting a running knee and a lariat as we see Alexander Wolfe coming out onto the stage and Ilja hits a bridging pump handle suplex for a near fall. Saxon then hits Ilja with a lariat for a near fall before Ilja hits a diving ax handle to the outside and a diving senton once they're back in the ring and Ilja finishes with Torpedo Moscow for the pin and the win.
