Heath vs Dirty Dango

Heath looks to teach Dirty Dango a lesson in respect! Director of Authority Santino Marella joins Tom Hannifan and Matthew Rehwoldt on commentary before he battles Dango this Sunday at Slammiversary Fallout. Heath is fired up in the early going as he delivers a series of strong right hands. Dango finds an opening and takes Heath off his feet. Dango catapults him throat-first into the bottom rope. Heath tries to build momentum but Heath shuts him down with a running back below. Heath avoids the diving knee, then turns the tide with a big powerslam. Dango provokes Marella at ringside as security holds back the Director of Authority. Dango takes a cheap shot at Marella but is caught with the Wake Up Call from Heath. The referee is distracted the commotion at ringside, which gives Dango time to recover and kick out at two. Dango pins Heath with his feet on the ropes to win.
