Santana goes for the pin, Matt Hardy makes the save! Ortiz drives the face of Hardy into the barricade! There’s a pool on the upper deck of the stands! Hardy is sent face first into the pool!
#50, Ortiz… apparently can’t swim. They “drown” Hardy in the water for a moment, suddenly 1.0 Matt Hardy emerges from the water! Matt can hold his breath for 346 seconds appears on the screen. Cool under water shots. Hardy floating face down, suddenly emerges, leaving both Santana and Ortiz inside the water. Matt Hardy slams Ortiz through the table. Hardy rings the bell with Ortiz’s head inside of it, then duct tapes him to a wheelchair.
Hardy delivering hard rights to Santana next. Santana counters, lifting Hardy onto his back. Hardy avoids, and slams Santana into (literally) the ice machine. Hardy then puts a broom through the handles. Jake Hager searches the halls for the Hangman, noticing the horse. Hager hears sees the sign for the bar. Hangman has a drink.
“I knew I’d find you hiding in here.” Hager states. “Did you come here to fight, or did you come here to drink?” Hangman sends over a whisky shot. They both drink, then begin to tee off on one another. Page has a pool cue, smashing it across the spine of Hager. Hager attempts to flip Hangman over the bar. Page stops it with his feet, then flips. Hager drives the spine of Hangman into the pool table.
Hager hoists up Hangman, laying him on the bar, grabbing him and sliding him through all the cups and plates on the bar like an old western. Hager slams Hangman with a Power Bomb through a table and goes for the pin. Page kicks out at two.
Hangman and Omega smash bottles over Hager’s head, then land the “Buckshot Bar” flinging Hager over the bar. You can hear the crowd chant of “This is awesome! This is awesome!” Hangman pours milk for Omega, Omega pours whisky for Hangman. They drink. We switch back to the field. Matt Jackson and Sammie throwing kicks back and forth. German Suplex by Matt. Northern Lights Suplex by Matt, then a second, then a third. We see Jericho land a strike on Nick, then put up the flag.
Nick kicks the bullhorn into the face of Le Champion, followed by throwing multiple footballs at Jericho. Nick throws Jericho into the mouth of the Jaguar. Jackson Deville didn’t like that very much! Jackson knocks out the Jaguars mascot! Jericho was wearing a cone on his head, Nick Jackson kicks him into the goal. Commentary states, “Duuvall!”
Jericho with the two count on Nick. Jericho challenges the play, the referee and Chris Jericho go into the replay tent. Jericho states it’s a lie, calling her a shitty referee. Matt Jackson spikes Sammie after delivering consistent Northern Light Suplexes until he reaches the goal! The coach calls a penalty for excessive celebrating.
Sprinklers turn on as Sammie Guevara is crawling across the field. Sammie says, “I won! I did it! Yes! I did it!” We hear a motor. Sammie hears the golf cart and his hands drop to his sides. He shakes his head “no” as this is all too familiar. Sammie sprints in the opposite direction as Matt Hardy laughes hysterically, Omega in the passenger seat, as he drives quickly at Sammie. Omega climbs up and chases Sammie. Sammie throwing chairs at The Elite as he climbs the stairs. Sammie lands a boot on Omega, but he’s all alone. Sammie attempts to throttle Matt Hardy.
NEO 1, the new-and-improved Vanguard 1 drone, flies its way into the picture, setting up a V-Trigger from Omega. Omega then hits an insane One-Winged Angel from the bleachers all the way through some staged flooring, sending Guevara through it and covering him in the process and the referee appears, counting the three!
