Perkins reversed Swann’s DDT attempt to a standing fireman’s carry and transitioned it to an overhead kick, before locking in his kneebar for the win.

The California-based wrestler also capitalized on his foe’s injured left knee after he evaded Swann’s moonsault attempt to the outside early in the matchup.
