Izaz celebrates his victory which is sure to take him one step closer to another shot at the Las Vegas Championship belt, but as he does El Froggo slowly begins to rise to his feet. Jacob Izaz extends his hand for a handshake to El Froggo, but El Froggo takes one look at the outstretched hand of his opponent and slaps it out of the way!
