During the picture-in-picture break, Best Friends came down to the ring just to check on Orange’s injury. When it appears he will be able to continue the match, Buddy goes on the attack, using the ring post, steel steps, and ropes to exasperate things. He’s even going as far as to shove Orange’s fingers into the metal connecting pieces of the barricade.
Cassidy tries to fight back. He comes off the top ropes but is caught while elevated. He avoids two attempts at German suplexes, and then runs Buddy’s face back and forth between the turnbuckles. He climbs to the second rope and leaps but eats a superkick on the apron. Orange hits a superkick of his own, but right after, he suffers a knee right to the chin. Cassidy hits back with a beach break on the apron!
The two men nearly get counted out, but right at 9 and 7/8, Buddy and Orange slide in the ring. They trade punches in the center of the ring, with the crowd cheering with each shot from Orange. Buddy returns to the hand and stomps down, forcing screams from Cassidy. Buddy does Orange’s lackadaisical kicks, which Cassidy responds to by weakly putting his hands in his pockets.
Buddy nails him with another knee to the face! Stundog millionaire from Orange! He meets Buddy on the top rope with a forearm strike. A wild avalanche DDT off the ropes follows. He then uses a diving DDT on the outside, and then connects with a jumping DDT to finish him off. But, no! Buddy still somehow kicked out. Buddy with a knee. Orange with an Orange punch! Another close two count. Wow, this one is close as it gets! Buddy tells Orange to finish him with one more punch, but he was playing opossum. He grabs Orange’s hand and gives him a knee. Orange with a mouse trap for the pin out of nowhere! Cassidy retains!
