by SIMONE BRUGNOLI | VIEW 1718
Now is the time for what can easily be called the final chapter of a rivalry that has been dragging on for months now. LAST MAN STANDING MATCH: LA Knight vs Grayson Waller; LA doesn't even wait for his opponent to step into the ring, picking him up directly on the ramp.
The two fight as if there is literally no tomorrow. Neither of them seems to intend to stay on the ground until the count of ten which we remember is the special stipulation of this match. The dispute then moves backstage where Waller ends up making a flight into the void.
It all seems over but in the end, Waller is rescued by his trusty Shanga who then not happy knocks Knight down on the apron with a chokeslam. Knight barely manages to keep both of his opponents at bay but then manages to handcuff Shanga to the ring post.
Waller now appears in full control before being thrown into a table positioned at ringside. The two do not spare themselves with LA that after placing a trash can on Waller's head hits him repeatedly with a series of sedate.
The two now move to the comment table where Waller manages to hit Knight with a blunt object before attempting an elbow drop from the top of the stake landing on poor LA Knight. Grayson Waller and LA Knight were scheduled for a Last Man Standing Match at WWE Nxt Roadblock.
The Million Dollar Superstar attacked Waller while he was making his entrance.

Sanga got involved in the contest and kept coming to The Arrogant Aussie’s aid. Knight threatened Sanga with a steel chair but took a chokeslam on the apron in return.
The two heels tried to handcuff him, but the veteran handcuffed Sanga to the ring post. He unloaded with a steel chair and put a trashcan on Grayson Waller's head before smacking it and taking out Sanga. The Million Dollar Superstar cleared the announcement desk before Waller put him through it with an elbow drop.
The heel beat the ten count to pick up the win. The referee's count then begins with the two struggling to get up. Waller, however, has an extra weapon and it's called cunning, in fact, he literally clings to Shanga who without problems gets to his feet allowing Waller to rise to a standing position just before the 10 count.
The same unfortunately does not apply to Knight who remains lying on the ground after the violent blow previously suffered. Result: Grayson Waller's pinfall victory. Now it is again the turn of the Women’s Dusty Classic with the second semifinal.
