Bell rings and Claudio & Delirious start. Nigel comes to the announce booth and says that he can’t trust anyone anymore…but he sounds all British and stuff, so I can’t really understand him. Claudio & Delirious have a test of strength, which, of course, Claudio wins. Delirious tries to out speed Claudio, but Claudio eventually catches him and clocks him. Go & Black in. Go gets Black in a tree of woe, and chops him down off the turnbuckle, and then chops away in the corner. Go hits a running knee to Black’s head for 2.
