Sami Callihan vs. Brian XL
As XL came out, a little kid slipped through the guardrail and hugged XL. Callihan took the mic and said that if the kid did that to him, he’d have kicked him in the face. He said XL is a “flippy guy” and that when he was done with XL, his kid was going to watch his dad be carried out. He took the House of Glory flag, which XL carries to the ring, and slammed it down. XL wasn’t happy with that.
The crowd chanted “Brooklyn” to get behind XL. Callihan did some comedy where he tried to get on the ropes to yell at the crowd but “slipped” and was so angry about it, he kicked the buckles and “hurt himself.”
They locked up and Callihan was backed into the corner. The referee broke them up. XL offered his hand. Callihan shoved him by the face. Callihan backed him in the corner and ripped at XL. He then offered his hand but XL took it, whipped Callihan to the ropes and dropkicked him.
Callihan quickly cut him off and nailed a Facewash into the corner. He went for another but XL dove at him with a kick, taking him out. Callihan was sent to the outside and XL went for a dive. Callihan leapt up on the apron and said, “No dives!” XL dropkicked him off, then hit a hell of a tope.
Callihan drilled XL on the floor and argued with some kids at ringside. He even leaned in and dared one to punch him in the fae. He then told the kid “this one is for you” and tried to chop XL, who ducked and Callihan nailed the ringpost. XL was caught and nailed with a backdrop on the apron. Callihan demanded the referee count him out. XL returned in time but Callihan cut him off and tossed him back out. He drilled XL with a kick off the apron and demanded the kid he was arguing with get in the ring and fight him.
XL rolled back in the ring at the last second and Callihan mocked him, then tossed him over the top again. XL’s foot hit the guardrail on the way out. Callihan returned to the floor and worked over XL. XL sent him into the railing. They both painfully returned to the ring before the ten count.
