Heart of Gold was winning the majority of the fight, destroying Spinister's drive motor and wheel in the process, until it got hung on a floor seam and counted out. This was despite the team demanding the fight be paused so it could be freed and the fight continued. Spinister won by TKO with 40 seconds remaining.
