Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake
Greg "The Hammer" Valentine
Round One Matchup
Welcome to The 2nd Annual Hasbro Classic, a tournament where YOU determine the winners! After The Ultimate Warrior decimated Sgt. Slaughter last week, we continue with a battle between former WWF Tag Team Champions Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake and Greg "The Hammer" Valentine.
Right off the bat, Beefcake surprises Valentine with an atomic drop that has The Hammer reeling. The Barber follows up with a double axe-handle to the back of Valentine. Will The Hammer be getting a haircut before this evening is over?
Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake begins strutting, can the cutting be far behind?
WHAM! Greg "The Hammer" Valentine catches Beefcake showboating on the ring apron and catches Beefcake with a hard clothesline to the floor. Valentine is in control of the match now. Usually, it takes The Hammer 10 minutes to warm up...
Can a Figure Four Leglock be far behind for The Hammer? Probably not, considering neither of their knees are the least bit bendable.
Greg "The Hammer" Valentine whips Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake in the ropes, hoping to pound him with the forearm blows his father made famous.
But wait! Just as things look darkest for The Barber, he's reversed the Irish Whip and come back with.... kind of a sleeperhold? It's not pretty, but Beefcake didn't graduate from Sal Fedora's Barber College because he had the most finesse. This might be it, folks....
It appears as though Greg "The Hammer" Valentine has purchased a one-way ticket to Slumber City and will lose....
WAIT A MINUTE! What's this? The Honky Tonk Man has come to ringside and has jumped up on the ring apron! Hasbro Classic devotees may remember how earlier this month, Valentine attempted to help his Rhythm & Blues partner in his Hasbro Classic match. Is Honky Tonk trying to even the odds? Or will his interference backfire, much like Valentine's did for The Greatest Intercontinental Champion Of All Time?
Beefcake has released the hold and is trying to get his fishnet-gloved hands on The Honky Tonk Man!
How did you vote?
BIG mistake for Brutus Beefcake (which, we realize, kind of rhymes). With The Barber distracted, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine knocks his former Dream Team partner out of the ring with a powerful forearm blow.
Incensed, Beefcake attempts to chase after The Honky Tonk Man (which is difficult because, again, he doesn't have functioning knees) and is counted out of the ring. YOUR WINNER BY COUNTOUT: GREG "THE HAMMER" VALENTINE!
