He goes for the cover, but again it is only a near-fall. Ash regains momentum. He locks in the Sharpshooter in the middle of the ring, which forces an exhausted Skeeter to tap out!
Donny picked a solid match to start out the show! I think Skeeter’s patented Patty Mayonaise didn’t look weak, although this non-canon match did not help Skeeter’s cause any.
