Steel Cage Match: Matt Morgan vs. Crimson
The match begins and Crimson is immediately trying to get out of the cage. Morgan yanks him down and hits him with a clothesline, then a shoulder block and a side slam. Crimson tries exiting through the door but Morgan stops him and smashes him into the cage. Morgan almost leaves the cage himself, but decides not to so he could beat up Crimson instead. Crimson regains control of Morgan and now Crimson is stomping away at Morgan before hitting him with a big running clothesline. Crimson goes for the pin but he's only able to get a two. Crimson hits Morgan with a series of clubbing blows to the back. Crimson pulls Morgan to his feet, hitting more big clubbing shots, before sending Morgan head first into the turnbuckle, then choking him on the top rope. Later on, both guys are down. Both men get to their feet and Morgan hits a couple of punches, then a couple of clotheslines. Morgan takes Crimson over with a snap mare, then hits a boot to the face. Morgan plants Crimson face first on the corner turnbuckle before dropping him with a back suplex. Morgan charges in and squashes Crimson in the corner. Crimson goes out to the apron. Morgan charges and hits a big cross body, sandwiching Crimson into the cage wall. In the end, Morgan gets crotched on the ropes and then trapped between the middle and bottom ropes while Crimson heads over the top of the cage and out to the floor to win the match.
