No Justice No Peace (Theo Baylor, The Neighborhoodlum and Roosevelt Owens) (c) vs. Winners of Four Corners match

8. FIST of DEFIANCE: Kendrix (c) vs. “Twists And Turns” Oscar Burns

-Kendrix was NOT keen at all with locking up with The Team Graps Cap. The first few minutes comprised of stalling from the champ. When Kendrix tried a cheap shot behind the referee's back, Burns caught his hand and nearly won with a Fujiwara Armbar before Kendrix escaped the ring.
-The tables turned on the outside when Kendrix DRILLED Burns with a Neckbreaker out on the floor!
-From there Kendrix used his own wrestling prowess to work over the neck of Burns, especially after a vicious Brainbuster for a nearfall!

-Burns fought back late in the game and nearly won off a pinfall reversal, but Kendrix kicked out! He landed a big Superkick on Burns for 2.9999999!
-The crowd was on their feet by the end stretch, Burns landed the Hard Out Headbutt and the Dragon Suplex also scored a big nearfall!
-Kendrix almost stole the win with a distraction by throwing his shirt at the ref followed by a belt shot, but also got a two-count! Burns would NOT go away quietly!
-Kendrix went for Bellend, but - NO! Oscar held onto the ropes and locked him in Graps of Wrath II! The bell rang and the crowd EXPLODED!

...until it was announced...

WINNER: and STILL FIST of DEFIANCE via 30:00 Minute Draw... Kendrix!

...Kendrix hadn't tapped, but the clock ran to zero! As the crowd JEERED, Kendrix was given the title! He laughed and raised the title overhead, demanding Burns raise his hand and declare him the better wrestler. He beat him at DEFCON and he failed again tonight...

Burns responded in kind with a Hard Out Headbutt, sending Kendrix from the ring!

After the match was over and Kendrix scrambled out of the venue, Oscar Burns looked upset over having not won the title, but still managed to thank the crowd for coming tonight and for continuing to support DEFIANCE and BRAZEN events!
