Austin Theory vs. Kushida

We go back to the ring and out first comes Austin Theory. Theory takes the mic and says he wants to make one thing perfectly clear – he is a future first-ballot WWE Hall of Famer, and he hates to bring Bronson Reed up, but last week’s win for him was a fluke and he’s ready to prove that tonight. The developmental trainees in the crowd keep booing as Theory talks more trash about Reed. He takes off his shirt and drops the mic. Kushida comes out to answer his challenge.

Kushida stays on top of Theory but gets dropped on the top rope, then dropped with a clothesline. Theory mounts Kushida and unloads with strikes, then stomps him. More back and forth now.
