Styles then crotches Dreamer on the guard railing. Styles rolls under the steel guard railing, springboards off the top of the railing and catches Dreamer with a big forearm to the head. They brawl into the crowd. They still have the old “iMPACT!” logos on the walls in the crowd. So much for that rebranding. Dreamer grabs one of the old iMPACT! logo signs and breaks it over Styles’ head. Styles has a cut near his temple and is busted open. Dreamer is back ringside putting a garbage can full of weapons inside. Styles is back in and kicks the garbage can in his face.

Dreamer with a big DDT on Styles. Dreamer grabs a fork and Styles tries to block it. Styles with a Pele Kick. Styles has Dreamer ready for a Styles Clash when Bully Ray hits the ring hitting Styles in the back of the head using a chain. Christopher Daniels runs out to chase away Bully Ray. Dreamer has Styles up for a piledriver and executes it over the table breaking it in half. Dreamer gets the pinfall.
