Two weeks back, Jake Atlas showed just how good he is when he was able to beat Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott in a one on one match for NXT. After the match, Swerve refused to shake the hand of Atlas, and started to show a new edge afterwards. He’s sick of playing nice, and tonight we will see if that means a change in style as he faces off with Jake Atlas once again.
A New Side Of Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott
Atlas took Swerve into the corner to get this one started, but got taken to the mat and rolled up with a crucifix for the one count. Swerve would look to out-wrestle Atlas, and got slapped in the face. If there was any respect between these two former friends, it’s gone.
Swerve got aggressive in the corner, peppering Atlas with strikes before taking him to the mat again. Atlas was able to get back to his feet and get the Dragon Screw leg whip, sending Swerve to the outside. He was able to hit a triangle enziguri, sending Swerve to the outside. He considered grabbing a chair but found his head before risking a DQ, as we moved into a commercial break.
Back from the break, Swerve again had Atlas on the mat, driving elbow strikes into his head. Atlas fought up, got to the corner and shoved Swerve away before hitting a unique Code Red for a two count. A jumping cutter almost set up a Rainbow DDT, but Swerve got a superkick at the right moment.
Jake Atlas Gets Rocked
Atlas was sent outside for the Pump Kick, and taken back in for a huge brainbuster from Swerve. This only got a two count, but he had Atlas where he wanted him. He pushed him into the corner to set up something, and tried for a top rope Dragon Suplex!
Atlas countered and got a top rope poisonrana, but Swerve landed on his feet! They threw some quick paced kicks and Sweve dodged a roundhouse and nailed the House Call. He tried for a pinfall but got countered. Atlas tried for a German Suplex, Swerve hit a reverse headbutt and hit the Confidence Boost driver for the win.
Swerve got cocky in his post match celebration, and this time Atlas refused the handshake. Will this new Swerve be a better match for Santos Escobar? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
