Bully starts with right hands and a big back body drop, followed by two clotheslines and a sidewalk slam. He's all fired up, trying for a clothesline, but gets caught with an elbow from Roode. Bully hits back with several rights again, followed by a Bionic elbow, shades of Dusty Rhodes. The crowd already wants tables, so he goes to the outside and sets one up on the floor.
Roode attacks from behind, firing away with big right hands. Bully counters, throwing Bobby hard into the barricade, and sets up a second table right next to the first one. He turns around into a clothesline from his opponent, again. Another table gets thrown into the ring, as they brawl around the first two tables. Roode sets up the third table against a turnbuckle, and they tease going through it, which ends with a surprise dropkick from Roode.
Bobby maintains control momentarily with clotheslines in the corner, but gets run over with a shoulder block. Roode hits a neckbreaker, and then decides to take the table out of the corner and sets it up normally. He teases a suplex through the table, but Bully counters with a tease of his own. Eventually Bully just settles for a suplex to the ring, sans table.
Roode comes off the top rope with a flying neckbreaker, a little too close to the table for my comfort. He fires off with right hands, before setting up for a mocking powerbomb, shades of his opponent. Bully with a big back body drop, and the crowd wills him back into the match – doesn't last long as Roode drops his throat over the ropes.
Roode counters out of a powerbomb…twice…but gets put through a table on the third attempt. However, Roode's boot hit the referee in the face, so nobody important saw it break. Bully sets up another table out of frustration, but Bully plants him with a spinebuster. He sets him up for the Roode Bomb, but Bully counters with a hard elbow. Roode climbs to the top rope, but Bully catches him with an RKO out of the air.
The referee is still down. Somehow. Bully throws Roode on top of the tables that are set up on the outside. He climbs to the top rope, but some "dude" in all black creeps up behind him and tosses him through the tables. NOW – by some miracle of God – the referee recovers, and calls for the bell.
Winner: Bobby Roode
-Guess who is wearing a fake beard and mustache!? YUP – it's Katie Vick! Wait…no, it's Dixie Carter. She stands over Bully Ray and throws things at him. Meanwhile, Roode looks like he has no clue what is going on.
