The action in the bout started off hot as the two competitors went back and forth with their in-ring action as well as tugging the crowd back and forth between the two.


The closing of the match saw Swann execute a "Phoenix Splash" out to the floor and then he proceeded to roll Lee back in the ring and then Swann made his way to the top rope and hit his signature "Phoenix Splash" for the three count and Swann emerged victorious in his debut match in IMPACT Wrestling.


Following the match it was announced over the official IMPACT Wrestling Twitter account that at 'Slammiversary XVI' on July 22nd, Rich Swann will be a part of a Four-Way match along with Johnny Impact, Taiji Ishimori and Fenix.
