The heels had control in the beginning of the match. Matt Jackson took out some of the members of The Dark Order at ringside. Once Matt Jackson got involved in the match, The Young Bucks were able to take advantage. The Young Bucks used their speed and high flying abilities to their advantage while The Dark Order used a ground-and-pound, physical mentality. Matt Jackson went under the ring at ringside to avoid being surrounded by the members of The Dark Order at ringside until being slammed by Evil Uno. Nick Jackson was tagged and took over the match with strong kicks to both Uno and Grayson. Stu Grayson took out Matt Jackson and threw him into the tunnel. He then ordered The Dark Order members to stand in front of the tunnel blocking Matt from coming back which was smart. This would allow for a 2-on-1 handicap essentially.
