World Title #1 Contender's Match: Sting vs. Matt Morgan
They lock up and Morgan takes control with strikes in the corner. Sting fights back but gets caught with a chokeslam. Morgan gets 2 as we go to a commercial.
Morgan is in control of Sting on the outside as we return to action. Morgan drops a big leg across Sting's neck from the apron a la The Undertaker. Morgan misses with the 2nd one and Sting unloads on him on the floor. Morgan reverses in the ring and hits a side slam for 2. Morgan raises his arm in the center of the ring and motions a title around his waist. Morgan continues to slowly decimate Sting in the ring.
Sting avoids an elbow drop on the mat and hits a series of clotheslines and a Stinger Splash in the corner. Sting goes for another but runs into a huge Carbon Footprint but kicks out at 2. Morgan misses with another boot in the corner and Sting applies the Scorpion DeathLock. Morgan finally makes it to the ropes. Sting pulls him to the center and applies it again. Sting just sits down on him and barely has it on. The ref checks Morgan's arm and it drops twice as he rings the bell. Morgan is passed out.
Bully Ray and friends get on the apron and we hear Bully talking trash to Sting as we go off the air.
