Cody sends Brock outside and hits him in the face again, then he connects with an axehandle smash with the brace for two. Cody connects with a Disaster Kick, then follows with a Cody Cutter for two.
Cody hits Cross Rhodes, then Lesnar makes it to his feet so Cody psyches himself up and hits a second one. Cody aims for a third but Brock turns and gets him in a Kimura lock. Cody rolls forward and tries to get a pinfall, but Brock gets his shoulder up and keeps the Kimura applied. Cody tries to roll again, but Brock uses his momentum to keep the hold applied from a seated position and Cody starts to fade. The ref checks Cody’s arm, but Cody is still in it and reaches for the ropes. He finally gets the bottom rope, and Brock is forced to break the hold.
Brock goes for an F-5, but Cody counters and hits another Cross Rhodes for two. Cody smashes Brock in the face with his brace, but Brock just powers to his feet and hits an F-5.
