Kurt Angle vs. Mr. Anderson
Mr. Anderson is the first man out, stopping at the top of the entrance ramp. Anderson brings down the mic, and he says that he's got the key, his precious. He introduces himself, stopping short of saying his name, switching hands first, and then saying his name, of course repeating Anderson. Kurt Angle is the next man out to the ring, with pyro and fanfare, and a warm welcome from this St. Louis crowd.
The bell rings, and this one is ready to go. Anderson looks to wrestle this match with the key to the cage around his neck. Anderson calls for a test of strength, but he uses it as an opportunity to hit a cheap shot on Angle. Anderson ducks a blow from Angle and hits a low dropkick, trying for the cage door right away. Angle is able to prevent Anderson from leaving the cage, but Anderson fights back, using the chain and the key to beat at Angle's head. Anderson goes back to the padlock, but Angle is right back on him, with a belly to back suplex. Angle beats on Anderson in the corner, stomping away at him in the corner. The lock looks to have the key in it and might be open. Angle hits a snap suplex on Anderson.
Angle sends Anderson into the ropes, and he charges, but Anderson blocks it, and elevates Angle, sending him face first into the cage wall, and Angle is busted open. Anderson punches at Angle's forehead, working over his wound. Anderson rakes Angle's head against the cage wall, before pulling his neck back against the top rope, and slamming him head first into the cage repeatedly. Anderson takes his hand, which is covered in Angle's blood, and wipes it across his body. Anderson hits a leg drop on Angle and goes back to the cage door, but Angle stops him again, slamming him head first into the door. Anderson responds by launching Angle straight into the cage door.
Anderson tries for a back body drop, but Angle reverses it. Angle notices that the key is stuck in the lock, but Anderson crashes into Kurt with a low knee, sending Kurt into the cage door head first. Anderson climbs to the top rope, but Angle is up out of nowhere with a huge super belly to belly suplex and both men are down.
Angle is back up to his feet, and Anderson is unwrapping his wrist tape. He uses it to wrap around Angle's throat and he chokes Angle, taking him down to his knees, and eventually down to the mat, where he grapevines his legs around Angle's body. Angle starts to fight back, working up to his knees, and up to his feet. He gets out of the hold with a quick back suplex and both men are down again.
Both men are up to their knees, where they trade right hands. Both men up to their feet still trading punches, and Angle gets the upper hand with a big clothesline, and another. Angle sends Anderson into the ropes and hits a big back body drop. Angle sends Anderson into the corner, blocks a big boot and comes back with a release belly to belly overhead suplex. Angle tries for the Angle slam, but Anderson counters and hits the Green Bay plunge. Anderson goes for the pin,but realizes he can't win that way. Anderson goes for the mic check, but Angle fights out of it and hits seven German suplexes, holding on until the last one (Tenay incorrectly calls it at six). Angle goes over to the cage door and looks at the lock, but he turns back to Anderson.
