Johnny Gargano Vs. Aleister Black
The bell rings and neither man moves. They stare at each other as the fans chant for both of them. They walk toward each other in the middle of the ring and Gargano slaps Black. Aleister responds with a kick to the head. He follows-up with some kicks but gets tossed through the ropes. Gargano jumps over the ropes but nobody’s home, and Black follows-up with a swift kick to the chest that floors Johnny.
Black punches Johnny against the apron, and Gargano slides back into the ring. He dodges some kicks and punches from Black and mocks his signature pose in the middle of the ring. He dodges another kick and delivers one of his own to the back of Black. Gargano punches Black in the corner, then tries to dodge more of Black’s attacks but the devil is used to it now. Johnny rolls from the ring, so Black fakes a dive and springboards back into a seated pose, but by that point Johnny had ran around the ring, slid back in, and kicked him in the head!

Gargano kicks Black in the corner, then poses, and the fans boo. Johnny Wrestling looks for a suplex but it’s reversed and the two engage in pin attempts, until Gargano gets Black in a surfboard-style submission. Gargano really slows the pace as he chops Black in the corner. Aleister starts firing back with some kicks, then kicks Johnny from the apron to the floor. Black lands a front flip dive over the top rope onto Gargano.
Black lands some more kicks on Johnny in the ring, before hitting a springboard moonsault for a near-fall. Black lands a superkick that knocks Gargano from the ring. He runs onto the apron and does a moonsault to the floor but Johnny isn’t there, and he lands on his feet. Gargano then comes flying through the ropes and hits Black with a tornado DDT on the floor!
Gargano gets Black back into the ring and lands a slingshot DDT for a near-fall. Gargano talks trash to Black as he kicks him, but that just fires Aleister up! They trade kicks and punches in the centre of the ring until Gargano hits a reverse hurricanrana – although to be honest Johnny landed on his own frickin’ head. Gargano comes off of the ropes and Black connects with a leaping knee and both men are down!
Gargano rolls to the apron – the side attached to the other ring – and looks to dive in for his spear through the ropes, but Black knees him. Black then hits a springboard meteora, followed by a head-kick and a German suplex for a two count. “This is awesome!” Black kooks for another head-kick but Gargano dodges it and hits a lariat. Gargano lands the Gargano Escape but Black rolls him up for a two count.

Johnny kicks him in the head, then hits the lawn dart to the second turnbuckle. Gargano lifts Black up, using his foot, like Black does before Black Mass. Then he performs the D.I.Y taunt in the corner, before he looks for his running knee. Black pauses him though, holding his hand up, and then rearranges himself into a seated position on the mat before telling Gargano to hit him with his best shot! Gargano takes his knee pad down and runs but Aleister ducks it, and looks for a roll-up but Gargano rolls through and kicks him in the head. Gargano hits the running knee and 12… nope!
Gargano lifts Black up by the hair and elbows him repeatedly. They exchange blows back and forth until Gargano dumps Black to the outside. Johnny runs for a suicide dive but Black catches him with a leaping knee to the face in mid-air! Back inside the ring, Gargano is backing off and asking for mercy but Black isn’t having it. He asks to be put out of his misery as Black lifts him up via his boot. Black swings for Black Mass but Johnny ducks it for a roll-up but Black kicks out. Johnny quickly transitions into the Gargano Escape but Black escapes. Aleister catches Johnny with a spinning knee. Black then takes down his own knee pad and hits a step-up knee to Johnny, followed by Black Mass but Gargano doesn’t fall! Black grabs him and tells him this is for all his sins, and hits another Black Mass for the win!
Winner: Aleister Black
