The Pope (with Terrence and Terrell) vs. Devon
Devon goes after Pope early. The crowd is doing dueling chants for Devon and Pope. Pope puts Devon’s head in front of the ringside post and attempts to throw a chair at it, but Devon avoids it. Later on, Pope calls for Devon’s sons to join him in the ring. He tells them to attack their father. They don’t seem to want to, but Pope stays on their case. They continue to hesitate and eventually Pope attacks one of them. The other brother didn’t like that, so Pope knocks him out too. Devon fires up and goes on the offensive. Devon hits his finisher on Pope and scores the pinfall. After the match, Devon’s sons come into the ring. Devon looks apprehensive, but eventually holds his arms out wide and they all share a big hug. Awwww.
