Brian Myers did it again. Just when you think Myers is trapped, he pulls a clever trick to avoid defeat. The latter case was successfully retaining the Impact Digital Media Championship against Bhupinder Gujjar in a ladder match. Myers used a genius strategy to ensure victory.
After Gujjar stole the title belt from Myers not once but twice, Scott D’Amore decided this feud had to be settled in a ladder match. The promotion did not disappoint. Gujjar had early control and wanted to finish quickly with a gargoyle spear, but Myers met him in the air with a jumping knee strike to the face. Gujjar then bled from the nose.
As Myers climbed, Gujjar served some bad medicine by pulling him into a cutter. Gujjar then joined the gargoyle spear and slammed Myers against the ladder.
Gujjar’s bad luck returned when an Irish whip forced him to crash into the steel with the ladder falling on top of him for a double blow of pain.
The participants set up two ladders next to each other to climb to victory. Myers was able to stop Gujjar’s momentum by performing a back suplex before a long fall down to the mat.
As the action spread out, Myers power-bombed Gujjar on a crooked ladder.
Myers tried to seize the moment to climb to victory, but Gujjar pulled him down. The challenger exploded insultingly to knock Myers out of the ring. The way seemed clear for a new champion. Not so fast, my friend.
Myers narrowly returned to the ring to punch the unsuspecting Gujjar. Myers brought a roll of tape into the ring to wrap Gujjar’s leg. Gujjar was tied to the ladder and could not break free. He was stuck when Myers reached the top to pick up the Impact Digital Media Championship.
That finish was a stroke of genius by Myers to close out a good race. Myers showed his more serious side in this affair by taking hard punches and also dishing out pain. He also helped a hot prospect in the process. Gujjar’s profile was raised in this feud despite defeat.
