The crowd was hot for Dillinger throughout. This was a battle where they got thrown into the cage at every turn. Young hit an unbelievable elbow from the top of the cage. Dillinger hit a crossbody off the top and escaped the cage to win.

Dillinger locked the cage behind him to keep SAnitY locked in as he celebrated with Ohno and Strong, who had tried to run off SAnitY themselves. After the match, Dillinger talked about how much he loved us. He said that he's officially on SmackDown and we got him there. This was great stuff.
