FFP Network Title
(c) ATM vs Cooper Albright
The crowd didn’t know who to hate more. Both men hit some big offensive maneuvers, including ATM reversing a powerbomb into a frankensteiner, then a Code Breaker that sent Albright inbetween the ropes and to the arena floor.
Cooper was able to get back into the ring and regain the upperhand, but Logan Christopher’s music hit and Logan walked out onto the stage. It was enough to get Cooper’s attention. He dared Logan to come down the isle. The two had feuded over the past few events with Cooper seeming to always get the upperhand. But off the distraction ATM rolled Cooped up and got the three count.
After the match Cooper threw a fit. Logan stormed the ring and hit him with a couple of punches, then a dropkick that sent him tumbling out of the ring.
The scene now cut to Tyrece Beckman who caught up with Anti. He asked the duo about their beatdown on Miles Lynch and why they did it, obviously putting into jeopardy Anarchy’s title shot tonight. Anarchy laughed, and said that they gave Miles an excuse, so that when he did defend the title tonight, lost it to Anarchy, he could say it’s because he was injured by the duo. Anarchy guaranteed that not only would Miles defend the title tonight, but that he would lose it tonight as well.
