Finn Bálor vs Shinsuke Nakamura

 

Finn Balor makes his entrance to a big pop. Balor is not coming in as “the demon” tonight, but in his normal leather jacket and all black gear.

Balor and Nakamura trade lockups as they feel each other out early. Nakamura rests his head on Balor. Finn doesn’t take it lightly and does “too sweet” right in Shinsuke’s face. Lots of stiff kicks and strikes from both men as the pace remains methodical to this point. We head to break.
