Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar went back and forth against each other. Added to the mix was Cody’s injured arm wrapped in a cast that came at the expense of Brock Lesnar a week before. Lesnar tried to establish dominance with his suplex city tour. But Cody used his disadvantage to his advantage.
The American Nightmare began using his cast as a weapon to dissect the Beast Incarnate, putting him down briefly with a duo of Cross Rhodes following that. However, as Cody went for the third one, he found his injured arm trapped in the dangerous Kimura lock for a long time. It looked at one point that he was going to pass out, but that did not happen and Rhodes broke out of the lock with the help of the ropes.
Rhodes again took the opportunity and delivered a third Cross Rhodes with one functional arm, but Brock Lesnar managed to kick out. Following that, Cody Rhodes managed to kick out of Lesnar’s devastating F-5, to the disbelief of the Beast. This enraged the Beast to trap Rhodes in the Kimura Lock once again, with Cody passing out of the pain, and the victory being awarded to Lesnar.
