He then hit Clark with a knee to the gut followed by a reverse Falcon Arrow and a Shining Wizard. Maluta then covered Clark for a 2 count.
Clark hit back with uppercuts and kicks. He then clubbed Maluta across the back before tossing Maluta across the ring. Clark then showed his power with a flawless suplex. Maluta tried to fight back with a spin kick but Clark hit him with a Famouser before pinning him.
