Singles Match: Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev

Aiden English sings Rusev out with some new melodies. Match gets underway and they start catch wrestling. Rusev gets a fireman’s carry takeover. Nakamura gets a hammer lock and Rusev counters into a hammer lock of his own. Rusev presses on Nakamura’s shoulder and then grabs a side headlock. Irish whip and Nakamura swings for a kick but Rusev evades it. They scramble and Nakamura takes control until Rusev lands a knee to his guy and cracks him with a right hand.

Rusev starts yanking on Nakamura’s arm and shoulder. The crowd chants, “Nakamura! Rusev Day!” Nakamura tries to get back in it and Rusev pushes him up against the ropes. Rusev swings and Nakamura ducks it and swaggers to the center of the ring. Nakamura does his “Come on” taunt and the crowd chants loudly with him. Rusev rolls out of the ring to catch a breather. Rusev paces slowly and relaxed around the ring. He finally rolls back in but then rolls back out again. Nakamura goes out after him now and jumps on him. He lays Rusev on the apron and drives some hard strikes into his head.

Back in the ring and the crowd chants for both of them again. As Nakamura is stepping between the ropes Rusev bludgeons him with a kick. Now Rusev takes control and he beats Nakamura to the outside of the ring, throwing him into the barricade a few times. Rusev rolls him back in the ring and pins for a 2-count. Rusev stomps Nakamura on the spine and puts on a rear chin-lock. Nakamura lands a back elbow and then drops for a leglock. Rusev yells out but Nakamura cranks on it.

Rusev gets out and lands a big slam on Nakamura, though he is selling the pain to his leg. Rusev limps over and drops an elbow on Nakamura. Rusev puts on another submission and tries to squeeze the life out of Nakamura. Rusev then drives some knees into Nakamura’s gut. Irish whip and Nakamura ducks an attack and returns with a dropkick that levels Rusev. Nakamura lands some kicks to Rusev’s chest and then one to the face. Rusev stumbles to the corner and Nakamura splashes him.

Then Rusev is laid across the corner and Nakamura drives a knee into the exposed underbelly. Nakamura grabs a front headlock and tries to crank on it. Rusev lifts Nakamura to escape but his leg gives out. He tries again, the same result. Rusev manages to scoop Nakamura up and hit a fallaway slam. Rusev huffs and puffs and catches his breath. As Rusev approaches, Nakamura goes on the attack and they trade shots until Rusev lands a devastating kick to the ear of Nakamura. He pins. 1-2-… but Nakamura gets the shoulder up.

Rusev starts banging around and getting angry. He gets ready to finish the job but Nakamura catches him coming in. They trade shots but then Nakamura lays Rusev out. He goes for Kinshasa but Rusev avoids it and goes for the Accolade. Nakamura counters with a pin attempt for a 2-count. Then Nakamura lands a spinning back kick and Rusev is slow to rise. He finally stands and Nakamura charges in for the Kinshasa. Rusev suddenly plunges Nakamura’s skull with a Matchka Kick. He pins. 1-2- but Nakamura kicks out at the last split-second.

Rusev goes for another Accolade but Nakamura escapes and hits a quick Kinshasa to the back of Rusev’s head. Then Nakamura sets up for it again and delivers it flush and gets the pinfall.

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura
