Brian Cage vs Brian Pillman Jr
Brian Pillman is going to be the first challenger to Brian Cage’s FTW title that Taz awarded Cage last week. Cage makes the announcer announce him as the FTW champion despite it being an outlaw title. Pillman would quickly avoid Cage and get some small hits in. All Pillman really did was annoy Brian Cage at best as he would make quick work to use his power to punish Pillman. A suplex into the ring followed by a Drillclaw would be enough for Cage to win and retain his FTW champion.
Winner Brian Cage.
Cage continues hitting Pillman with powerbomb after the match to send a message to AEW Champion Jon Moxley.
