JINDER MAHAL (c) vs. SHINSUKE NAKAMURA
Nakamura looked for the armbar as soon as the bell rang, almost trapping the champion right out of the gate. Instead he settled for putting the boots to Jinder in the corner and giving him a bit of Good Vibrations. The champion recovers and throws Nakamura to the outside, dumping him over the barricade and trying to get an easy count-out win before stomping away at the challenger’s back. He fired off with clubbing blows, slowing down the pace of the match as the crowd chanted loudly for the Artist.
After several minutes of selling rest holds Shinsuke fires up and connects with a knee to the back, then lights up the champion with stiff and brutal kicks, followed by a running knee to the midsection. Mahal tries to rush him but gets sent to the floor, and the challenger follows with a baseball slide to take him out. The Singh brothers try to get involved by take a series of kicks for their trouble. The distraction is enough for Jinder to hit him with a blow to the back of the head and suplex bringing him back into the ring. Mahal motioned for his finisher and tried for the Khalas, but Nakamura rolled him through into a schoolboy pin for a close nearfall. More kicks and strikes find their strike and the challenger goes to the second rope, flying out with a knee to the jaw.
The Singhs once again get involved pulling the champ to safety, but Shinsuke knocks them off the apron and finally the referee ejects them from the match! Back in the ring the Kinshasa finds its mark, but the ref is busy trying to get rid of the Singh brothers! Eventually he rolls back in, but on the three-count the champion gets his hand on the bottom rope just in time. Jinder tried to escape through the crowd, but the challenger went out and dragged him back. He got caught with a boot to the throat, and Mahal connected with the Khalas to pick up the 1-2-3.
Winner and Still Champion: Jinder Mahal
