Jerry: The anonymous Raw general manager has sent an email.
GM: David, you will be competing tonight. But not in a handicap match. You will face Regal one-on-one with Mason Ryan at ringside. Best of luck.
Regal is frustrated but nonetheless gets in the ring. The bell rings and the two men lock up.
Will immediately connects with a knee to the gut. Regal then follows it up with an arm-trap suplex. Still in control, he connects with a butterfly suplex, sending Otunga crashing to the canvas. When David gets up, Will goes for a clothesline, but Otunga ducks and hits a neck breaker. He goes for the cover. One...two...kickout.
David continues his assault, tossing Regal into the corner, and connecting with a few shoulder blocks. Will drops down, setting David up for a running knee to the head. Otunga is in control and drags Will back into the middle of the ring. David tries to follow up with a powerslam, but Regal wiggles out and immediately rolls out of the ring for a breather. David taunts Regal as we head to a commercial break.
