Later on, Dunne snapped Balor’s fingers again to escape another submission hold. Dunne planted Balor with The Bitter End for a near all. The challenger stomped on Balor’s fingers, but the champion floored him with a DDT. Balor countered The Bitter End into 1916 for a near fall.

Balor then ripped out Dunne’s mouth guard and kicked him in the face. The champion then hit Coup de Grâce and the 1916 for the win.
