Tony Deppen gave a pre-match promo, sharing how he has compared a lot in comparison to Titus in half the time. We then see ‘The Professional’ Rhett Titus coming to the ring next. Titus shares that he and Deppen both have similarities, but he will show him what it is like to go to work and that it isn’t personal but that it’s PROFESSIONAL. Deppen gives a half-hearted attempt at adhering to the code of honor with Titus.

Deppen recovers and uses Titus’ legs against him, leading to a rope break.
After the break, Titus once again works on Deppen down on the mat. Once again, Titus has Deppen’s head forced between his knees. It’s a fairly and technically sound match throughout. Titus hits a belly-to-belly followed by a butterfly underhook suplex on Deppen. But Deppen recovers, leading to a knee to the back of the head of Titus and an attempted rear chinlock.
