When the bell rang, the ferocity of both wrestlers shone through via excessive inside and outside the ring brawling at a furious pace, everything Race threw at Encubus he absorbed and reversed, everything Encubus threw at Race, he kept kicking out of, but of Encubuses Maffei Masterlock, Harley Race had no defense for except to begrudgingly tap out.
Harley Race (1 win, 1 loss, - 2 points)
Encubus (1 win, 1 loss, + 4 points)
At first row ringside, Thantos mentioned to Morpheus next to him, "I had to lite a fire under him before this match so he'd give it his all...all hail Me!", to which Morpheus gave a deep chuckle, Thantos never caught on that he had been tailed all day, Kagrinai (once again working for the co-commissioners) was quite undetectable and convinced that whatever Thantos's prior plan was, it's still going to happen.
This was easily a main event anywhere, Overmaster came out strong and almost Overhead Tossed himself a win, Shayne responded with Bionic Elbows "Frontier Style" but couldn't put AOM away, AOM came back culminating in his Dominance finisher but couldn't get it done, then The Real Ordeal countered with a Rolling Neckbreaker and subsequent cover for the three count.
Overmaster (0 win, 2 loss, - 60 points)
Shayne (2 win, 0 loss, + 68 points)
As The Aethran Overmaster slowly made his way back up the ramp towards the locker room, in the first row next to the ramp Disaster sat and promptly yelled out to him, "Hey...O and 2...guess who's the number one contender?...ME!!!", and with that, shortly after came Catch 32's very first "Code Gladiator" situation as several security guards tried to stop these two from choking the life out of each other.
Round 2 - Match 11:
Mil Mascaras (0-1) vs Omega Of Cetus (0-1)
P.S. - As of right now, Disaster really is the number one contender 😊
The first half of this match was a true scientific contest on a main event scale, the momentum switched over 10 times at least, the second half of the match saw a powerhouse offense as well as powerhouse defense, Omega gained control eventually and had six near three counts, but the unbelievably resilient Mascaras kicked out of all except for after the third Tomahawk Thrust finisher and with that, Omega scores the three count.
Mascaras (0 win, 2 loss, - 52 points)
Omega (1 win, 1 loss, -8 points)
"Massif, we have a problem, Sky just got this letter from Wince McCant and stormed off flying directly back to Earth, it says - I guess you had to get the F out after all ", to which Massif said, "We have to speak to him before he gets down there, we have another nuclear bomb now on our hands".
Happy to see the Real Ordeal continuing his climb in the rankings... And the post-match confrontation between Overmaster and Disaster builds up some great heat for the future... Awesome stuff!
Glad you enjoyed that one (figured you would).
As I mentioned to Troy, that match was on a totally different another level than most. And tensions ran very high for sure.
Overmaster and Disaster haven't forgotten their last match in the old fed. I believe if things flow the way they appear to be, Monoliths first title defense will be against Disaster. That match should be huge!
Bloodline faced a dilemma, Gotch has kicked out of 4 pin attempts and broken one submission attempt, he could not beat this man, as soon as Gotch broke Bloodines Cetus Masterlock, he raced for the corner while Gotch was still down, steadied himself on the top ropes and said to himself, this has to be perfect, he executed a + 5 Cosmic Big Bang and went for the cover, he got it, but within a fraction of a second later, Gotch kicked out, but at 3 1/2.
Bloodline (2 win, 0 loss, + 56 points)
Gotch (1 win, 1 loss, + 4 points)
"As well as my wrestler, you are to be my eyes and ears within this fed", "Yes...Master", "I want you to find out its inner workings...some sort of protective sorcery has been cast here, possibly to protect, possibly to conceal, I want to know who did it and why", "Yes...Master", Plethador (courtesy of Scrapheaps spy equipment), wrote down everything Zaratticus said to Andromedastein, just as Little Beaver wanted him to, he said it was very important.
Round 2 - Match 13:
Bigfoot (1-0 (+ 38) Points) vs George Hackenschmidt (0-1 (- 38) Points
Totally rockin' performance by both Bloodline and Thesz... Very pleased that Bloodline was able to pull off the win... Lots of people think he's overrated, but the third generation superstar remains one of my favorites... Awesome!
