The Creed Brothers vs. The Dyad in a Steel Cage match
If The Creeds win, they will be reinstated to NXT
Before the match even commenced, a surprise assailant targeted Brutus Creed, leaving him incapacitated just moments before the cage door closed. Joe Gacy took advantage of the situation and promptly sealed the door, trapping Julius Creed in the cage with Rip and Jagger. Seizing the opportunity, the Schismators swiftly removed the incapacitated Brutus from ringside.
Inside the cage, Julius Creed initiated the confrontation with a series of precise punches and well-placed elbow strikes aimed at Jagger and Rip. However, Rip and Jagger countered with their own offense, disrupting Julius’s rhythm. Despite this setback, Julius pressed on, delivering a barrage of powerful blows, including overhead belly-to-belly suplexes on both Jagger and Rip. Attempting a tandem suplex, Rip and Jagger’s efforts were countered as Julius executed a double suplex of his own, demonstrating his strength and determination.
The action remained intense, with Julius utilizing the steel cage to his advantage by forcefully driving Jagger’s head into its unyielding structure. In response, Rip and Jagger retaliated with a double clothesline, followed by coordinated kicks and punches aimed at weakening Julius. Undeterred, Julius mounted a counterattack, transitioning from a stretch muffler submission on Jagger to an ankle lock on Rip. Exhibiting his power, Julius powerbombed Jagger onto Rip, though Rip’s attempt to reach the ropes proved futile, as rope breaks held no sway within the confines of the cage.
Rip and Jagger executed a double hot shot, forcefully driving Julius’s face into the steel cage. In this moment, Rip capitalized on Julius’s vulnerability, delivering strikes while Joe Gacy used the opportunity to advocate for the Schism to Julius. Despite the onslaught, Julius retaliated with his own punches, engaging Rip and Jagger in a fierce exchange.
Rip managed to counter Julius’s German suplex attempt, incapacitating him and leaving him sprawled on the mat. With Julius temporarily incapacitated, Rip and Jagger seized the moment to coordinate their attacks, ultimately sending Julius crashing into the cage. Rip followed up with a boot to the head and a belly-to-back suplex, maintaining their momentum. An orchestrated Irish whip and a series of strikes continued to wear down Julius.
In the midst of the chaos, masked figures descended from the entrance, signaling the return of Brutus Creed. Reentering the fray with vigor, Brutus utilized his strength to clear the ring of the Schismators. Locking eyes on Joe Gacy, who held the key, Brutus pursued him and incapacitated the Schismators with a powerful clothesline.
Brutus tore the cage door off its hinges and entered the ring, wielding the door as a weapon against Jagger and Rip. He executed an exploder on Jagger and a suplex on Rip. Slamming the door against Jagger and Rip against the cage, Brutus asserted his dominance.
Brutus executed a press slam into the cage and another onto Rip, showcasing his remarkable strength. The Creed brothers’ communication signaled a change in momentum as they united to slam Jagger into the cage multiple times. Although Julius hoisted Jagger onto his shoulders, Rip intervened, saving his partner and sending Julius into the cage.
Using Rip as a springboard, Jagger delivered a running dropkick that connected with Brutus against the cage. The assault continued with Jagger’s strikes, but the Creed brothers remained resolute. When Rip and Jagger attempted to drop the cage door onto Brutus, the brothers thwarted their efforts, positioning the door on Rip and Jagger instead.
Julius lifted both Rip and Jagger onto his shoulders, allowing Brutus to launch a cannonball attack that struck both opponents with considerable force. The Creed brothers concluded the bout with a final series of clotheslines, securing the three-count and emerging triumphant in this intense cage match.
