McIntyre hit three consecutive future shocks but Lashley kicked out of the pin attempt. Moments later, Lashley went outside of the ring but McIntyre hit him with a swanton from inside of the ring to ringside. McIntyre also locked in a Kimura submission but Lashley made it to the bottom rope. McIntyre went for the Claymore but he missed after being distracted by MVP. Lashley took advantage and he applied the Hurt Lock full nelson submission. McIntyre got back up to his feet and use tried to push off but Lashley refused to let go of the hold.
