The British Bulldog
The Million Dollar Man
Round One Matchup
The very first match of The Hasbro Classic featured The British Bulldog (no relation) against WWE Hall of Famer "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase.
Right off the bat, The Bulldog took control of the match, rocking The Million Dollar Man with lefts and rights before hoisting him up and slamming him over the top rope of the dilapidated ring (don't worry; we're working on getting newer ropes for the remainder of the tourney).
Outside the ring, DiBiase regrouped as he thought up a plan...
Slowly, The Million Dollar Man got up and started to enter the ring. But The British Bulldog got too close, and DiBiase used this opportunity to choke him against the top rope (thankfully, DiBiase broke the hold before the imaginary ref's count of five, avoiding certain disqualification).
With The Bulldog wounded, DiBiase put the boots to his opponent and rocked him with several suplexes. He even did that standing fist drop-py move that DiBiase was so well known for during his early WWF run.
With The British Bulldog down and nearly out, DiBiase decided to attempt a high risk move and scaled the (very shaky) turnbuckles.
Whatever DiBiase had set out to do, we'll never know, because The Bulldog caught him in the act and hoisted The Million Dollar Man over his bulky shoulder.
From there, The Bulldog hit the running powerslam that characterized his entire singles run, flattening DiBiase.
The powerslam winded The Million Dollar Man, knocking the breath out of him. Davey Boy went for a cover, and from there, the pinfall was academic.
One - Two - Three! Your winner - THE BRITISH BULLDOG!
Humiliated, DiBiase rolled out of the ring while The Bulldog celebrated. Ringside fans apparently heard DiBiase say that "this isn't over yet!" as he made his way back to the locker room.
