KUSHIDA VS. DREW GULAK, SUBMISSION MATCH
This match began with a feeling out process between both men. Kushida and Gulak mat wrestled, with each one trying to take the advantage. Kushida was the man on top in the beginning, though that did change as Gulak took control of the match.
The bout remained grounded for the bulk of the time, with very few exceptions. Kushida fired up with a flurry of offense, leading to the end of the bout. He trapped Gulak in the Hoverboard-Lock, forcing Drew to tap out.
The two men shook hands after the match, as the fans applauded their effort.
WINNER: DREW GULAK
