-During the pre-show, WWE officially wrote off the injured Hideo Itami. Tonight’s #1 contender’s match will be a singles match between Tyler Breeze and Finn Balor. More on the situation here.
#1 Contender’s Match
TYLER BREEZE vs. FINN BALOR
Breeze gets a full super model entrance, with models walking the ramp and everything. He’s definitely rocking a cape… Finn Balor has definitely brought the demon tonight, with spikes along his back and dragon-like wings from his arms to his body. Dueling chants to kick this one off – the crowd is probably about 60/40 in favor of Balor.
Tons of quick-paced action early on with both guys relying on dropkicks. Breeze controls for several minutes, slowing things down, until Finn dropkicks him from the ring and does the double foot stomp off the apron. He looks to put it away with the Slingblade, but runs into a superkick for a nearfall. This leads into a crazy series of big moves from both men, pulling out everything. Breeze ends it with the Beauty Shot but only gets two. Finn bails from the ring and then totally disappears; Tyler goes to look for him and Balor comes diving off the top of the lighting structure to take him out. Eventually they make it back into the ring and Finn puts it away with the double foot stomp.
Winner: Finn Balor
