He ended up getting the opportunity by pinning Cassidy after hitting an Os Cutter on the man who had been attacked earlier in the night by Trent Beretta, who had joined Ospreay as part of the Don Callis Family earlier that nightt.

After the match, Strickland wasted no time confronting his next challenger as the two stared down one another before the show went off the air.
