Son of Havoc goes for his springboard cutter but Killshot hits a modified GTS. Killshot hits the Killstomp off the top for two.

Both men take turns throwing each other into the railing. Killshot takes too long climbing the railing and Son of Havoc gets up and they brawl on the railing.

There is an exchange of blows again until Son of Havoc hits his springboard cutter. He then piledrives Killshot on the stretcher and straps him to it. Son of Havoc then hits a Shooting Star Press on Killshot and gets the win.
Killshot says his name his Lt. James Killshot Strickland. And that for the last few years he has been trying to hide his identity because he didn’t want it known he left his brothers for dead. Killshot takes off his own mask and hands it to Son of Havoc.
WINNER: Son of Havoc- The post match was very well done. But again, I was disappointed in the actual match. I was expecting the match to be a fast paced back and forth affair but instead it was very slow moving and just a giant spot fest. Even trying to build it up as these two sacrificing everything, it didn’t work for me.
