The battle was nothing more than a skirmish, with these two titans in a square circle hitting each other with absolute bombs. Cross survived the shell rock fight, and Joe escaped from Cross’s jacket but looked worn out because the champion had sent him to crash into the towbar.
Cross climbed the ropes but gave Samoa Joe the hole he needed to hit the Muscle Buster and end the Doomsday prophecy.
