Round One Matchup
Welcome to The 2nd Annual Hasbro Classic, a tournament where YOU determine the winners! After Tatanka defeated Akeem by countout last week, we continue now with a battle between Randy "Macho Man" Savage and "Ravishing" Rick Rude!
Right off the bat, The Ravishing One sneak-attacks The Macho Man, punishing him with clubbing forearms and choking him against the top rope.
Ravishing Rick Rude continues to dominate, laying boots and punches to Randy Savage. The former Intercontinental Champion may be attempting to put Macho Man away in record time!
With Savage groggy, Rude scales the ropes and attempts to perform a flying fistdrop on the Macho Man. Aerial moves have never been Rude's forte.... as shown here when Savage catches Ravishing Rick from the top rope and slams him to the canvas below!
Savage follows up with a well-timed snapmare and then works over his sneaky opponent with a punishing chinlock.
Randy Savage attempts a pinfall but Ravishing Rick Rude kicks out at two. Savage continues to gain momentum but due to the distraction of Hasbro Bobby Heenan (not pictured.... possibly because such a figure doesn't exist), Rude is able to regain the advantage.
After several minutes of hitting Savage with everything but the kitchen sink (including a backbreaker and a bear hug), The Ravishing One goes on the offensive and prepares to put Macho Man away with his patented Rude Awakening. Is Savage done for?
Wait.... what's this? Randy Savage manages to break out of the hold, escaping through the ropes to safety. Although Rick Rudes goes after him , Savage fights back, dropping Rude to the canvas.
With his opponent groggy, Savage scales the top rope and hits his patented elbow drop!
How did you vote?
Rather than attempting to pin his opponent, Randy Savage pauses and scales the ropes again, attempting a second elbow drop! This is an extremely risky move, especially if Rick Rude manages to escape in time. Will Macho Man have gone to the well once too often?
No! Savage's risk pays off. Jumping even higher than he did in the previous stop motion video, Savage punishes Rude with a second elbow drop and then covers him for the pinfall. One - Two - Three! It's all over. YOUR WINNER - RANDY "MACHO MAN" SAVAGE!
