Last week, Ariya Daivari was going to help Tony Nese defeat Jake Atlas by slipping him his gold chain. Instead, August Grey was there to help Atlas out, and would leave with the gold chain of Daivari in hand. This week, Grey meets Daivari one on one, in what should be a heated grudge match despite the minor beef between these two. Oh, and of course Tony Nese was booked to be on commentary for this match.
August Grey Starts Off Fast
Grey got this one started by getting some punches in on Daivari, before Daivari hit the spin kick and low dropkick. Daivari got rocked with a right hand soon after, before slipping out of the ring. Grey would follow him, brawl on the outside while Nese pondered why they can’t keep this in the ring. Daivari was thrown back into the ring, and hit with the springboard crossbody, but Grey didn’t go for the pin.
Instead, Grey would pummel Daivari with punches, before setting up a brainbuster for a near fall. Daivari would counter a backdrop attempt and hit a DDT. Grey would be set up in a Neckbreaker Hold, before looking to counter into a backslide. Daivari blocked the pinfall attempt, before Grey hit a jawbreaker into a neckbreaker combo.
Ariya Daivari Gets A Little Help From His Friend
Grey would throw more strikes, before Daivari locked him in the sleeper hold. In the middle of the ring, Grey was fading, but charged Daivari into the corner to get the break. Daivari was thrown across the ring, but caught a charging Grey with a Rock Bottom. Grey would dodge the hammerlock lariat and nail a superkick, getting Daivari right on the jaw.
They’d slug it out, Grey knocking Daivari down with lariats and a scoop slam. Daivari slipped to the apron, before being hit with another lariat and sent to the mat. Grey hit a suicide dive, and Nese got in his face on the mat. Nese would hold up the chain Grey stole last week, allowing Daivari to dropkick a distracted Grey. Back in the ring, Daivari hit the Hammerlock Lariat, this one was done.
