Sabu tries to jump Williams right at the bell, but Williams is able to avoid him twice. A third time and Sabu is able to take Williams down, but it's not for long.

Sabu sends Williams into the corner and hits him with a big clothesline before going to the apron and hitting a slingshot legdrop on Williams. Sabu locks in a half camel clutch, but Williams is able to reach over to the bottom rope to break the hold and he rolls to the apron. Sabu hits a baseball slide and follows it up with a somersault dive over the top rope on top of Williams. Sabu grabs a table and sets it up like a pro, but Williams uses the distraction to turn it around. He sends Sabu back into the ring and goes to the middle rope, hitting a diving European uppercut that's good for a near fall.
Williams tries to go to the top again, but he's caught by Sabu. Sabu tries to go for a hurricarana, or at least it looks like it, but it's pretty noticeably botched. Sabu goes to the outside and grabs a chair and Hebner admonishes him so he drops it. Sabu beats on Williams for a bit before setting up the chair and using it for a springboard moonsault that's good for a two count. Sabu gets greedy and another try and Williams hits a drop toe hold, sending Sabu face first into the chair. Williams sends Sabu into the corner and hits a kick to the leg that looks like a bit of a low blow. Williams takes Sabu out with a clothesline that's good for another near fall before focusing on Sabu's back.
Sabu begins to fight back with a big right hand, but Williams comes right back with a European uppercut. Sabu hits a springboard DDT out of nowhere and both men are down. Sabu crawls over for a pin but only gets two. Springboard back elbow from Sabu and another two count on Williams. Sabu sets up the chair again and uses it to leap off of onto Williams with a big kick. Sabu sets the chair up again, but Williams kicks it right into Sabu's gut. Williams connects with a beautiful gut-wrench suplex, but it's only good for two. Williams goes for a German, but Sabu fights out of it and Williams rolls to the outside.
Sabu tries for a springboard, but messes up, drops back to the ring and springboards over onto Williams. Sabu sets Williams on the table that was set up previously, and Sabu dive over the ropes again, but Williams avoids it, causing Sabu to crash through the table. Williams tries to use the chair, but it's taken away by Hebner, so Williams uses the belt to crack Sabu in the head instead. Williams pins Sabu and this one's over.
