We see footage from Erick Rowan on Talking Smack, where he requested this match. Harper comes out first.
Erick Rowan Vs. Luke Harper
Rowan picks up Harper and plants him in the corner for a series of punches as soon as the bell rinsgs. He keeps Harper reeling with constant offense. Harper fires back with some chops, but Rowan knocks him off the top rope and he hits the steps on the way down. Rowan slams Harper into the barricade and unleashes some punches before sending him back into the ring.
Rowan squeezes Harper’s head between his fists until Harper fights out. Rowan hits a nice dropkick to get a two count. I think the crowd are exhausted from the last match. Rowan climbs to the top turnbuckle for a splash, but Harper moves out of the way. They take the fight outside the ring where Harper takes control and starts slamming Rowan’s head into the announce tables. Luke gets back in the ring so he can hit a suicide dive. A big boot gets him a near fall back in the ring.
