Nakamura slams Styles’ head into the steel steps and then he throws him over the barricade.

They take the fight into the crowd. Styles tries to leap off the barricade and Nakamura kicks his foot out from under him. Styles crashes hard to the floor and takes until the count of seven to get up. The fight gets increasingly brutal from here, as Styles and Nakamura trade brutal below-the-belt hits.
