Cody Rhodes vs Darby Allin
Darby had a bodybag that had “Cody 1-1” written on it. Nice touch.
After a bit of wrestling around to start things out slowly, Darby reversed a hip toss and Cody went outside to waste some time. Cody moved back inside and got frustrated with Allin’s wrestling and slapped him.
Then Cody sent Darby all the way outside and crashing to the floor. Allin sold outside while Cody did some push ups in the ring. Cody maintained control, but Allin wouldn’t let him get the pinfall.
Cody threw Darby against the turnbuckle and Allin went crashing to the floor. Then Cody told the referee to start counting. Then Allin went in the ring and Cody rolled him up for a two count before nailing a clothesline that turned Allin inside out.

Suddenly, Allin came back with a spingboard tornado body block, but Cody got to the ropes and kept selling his left hand. Then Allin dodged a clothesline and hit a suicide dive on Cody.

Winner: Time Limit Draw
The crowd was chanting “Overtime” as Shawn Spears jumped in the ring and nailed Cody RIGHT IN THE HEAD with a steel chair. Cody was busted open badly! They gathered around him, but he was okay enough to walk off after they put a towel on the side of Cody’s head.
Eventually, Cody was led off, but they took a minute to clean up all of the blood.
