Despite the early hiccup, though, Thatcher stayed in the match, and later proved why he was a formidable foe in his own right. Late in the match, Thatcher popped up after taking a hit from Riddle and proceeded to lock his opponent in a rear-naked chokehold. With nowhere to go and unwilling to tap out, Riddle passed out, forcing the referee to call the match in Thatcher’s favor.
