We are back and Roode has the advantage inside the ring. Roode locks in a reverse bear hug on Angle. Kurt gets to his feet, but Roode switches it to an abdominal stretch. Angle fights out of it and hits a german suplex. He holds on to the suplex and hits two more. Roode fights out, but misses a clothesline and eats another german. Angle holds on and hits two more suplexes for a grand total of six. Angle covers for a two count.
Angle goes for the Angle Slam but Roode counters into an armdrag and hits a spinebuster for a two counts. He goes for a firemans carry, but Angle slips out and locks in the ankle lock. Roode counters out and locks in a crossface. Angle is in the crossface for a long time, but he grabs the ankle and locks in the ankle lock. Roode teases tapping out, but returns back into the crossface.
Angle rolls Roode back for a two count, and Roode goes into a grounded crucifix for a two count. Roode locks in the crossface again and Angle teases tapping out. Angle tries to roll Roode back but he slips through to keep it locked in. Angle gets up and hits an Angle Slam to break the hold. Angle covers for a two count, and takes down the straps and latches on the ankle lock.
Roode is close to tapping, but he hits a grounded victory roll for a two count. Roode then hits a fireman's carry into a neckbreaker for a two-count. Roode and Angle both get up and Angle gets a single leg take down and locks in the ankle lock. Roode tries to get out, but Kurt holds on and grapevines the ankle. Roode extends and just grabs the ropes. Loud "This is awesome" chants.
Kurt picks Roode up and sits him on top of the turnbuckle. Angle looks for the Angle Slam off the top, but Roode knocks him off to the map. Angle gets back up and runs up the ropes for a super belly-to-belly suplex. Angle crawls over for the cover but can only get two.
Both men are down and the ref begins to count. Roode is up at seven but Kurt is not moving. The ref calls for the bell and Roode is declared the winner.
Winner: Bobby Roode
Angle rolls back onto his back as refs attend to Kurt. Roode looks confused and begins to walk up the ramp. We get a replay of the super belly-to-belly which Tenay and Taz are attributing to Angle being injured. Angle is sort of spazzing out on the mat as Impact goes off the air.
