(2) Christian York vs. Zema Ion
The challenger takes it to Ion right off, taking him down with a big clothesline and firing out of the corner with right hand after right hand. Ion reverses an Irish whip into the corner, but York avoids the splash and hits a Half Nelson Suplex. Ion crawls to the corner, but York cannonballs into him and then heads up to the top rope! Ion rolls out of the ring, and the challenger comes back down to the mat and grabs Ion by his hair. Back in the ring now, Zema hits a front suplex and goes for a running moonsault, but York gets the knees up! He rolls to the outside, and Zema runns off the ropes; York rushes the ring and clotheslines him down to the mat. York hits a modified swinging neckbreaker he calls the "Mood Swing", but Ion kicks out at two.
The head to the outside, and York lands a head scissors takedown to the floor. They roll back in the ring, but Zema locks in the "Submission Impossible", and York is forced to tap out.
Winner via submission: Zema Ion
