While Kalisto was on the defensive, Corbin hit the luchador with a powerbomb. Corbin then set up a few chairs in the center of the ring and in the turnbuckle, but Kalisto managed to trip Corbin, headfirst into the chair in the corner.
With momentum on his side, Kalisto went up to the top rope and hit Corbin with a seated senton through the chairs in the center of the ring.
Although Corbin tried to hit Kalisto with a chair on the outside, the luchador managed to avoid the attacks and even countered with a hurracanrana. Kalisto used this opening to attack Corbin with a chair.
The luchador then placed a chair on Corbin’s midsection and went up to the top rope. He tried to end the match with a moonsault, but Corbin somehow kicked out at two.
Kalisto continued to hit Corbin with multiple chair shots across his back. Despite all odds, he was in complete control of the match.
After a few more chair shots, Kalisto went up to the top rope, but as he was coming down, Corbin hit him with a chair directly on his face. Corbin then hit Kalisto with his signature End of Days onto the large pile of chairs in the center of the ring. He pinned Kalisto and won the match.
