Rowdy Roddy piper
The Honky Tonk Man
Round One Matchup
Welcome to The 2nd Annual Hasbro Classic, a tournament where YOU determine the winners! After Randy Savage pinned Rick Rude last week, we continue now with a battle between "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and The Honky Tonk Man.
Last year, the Hot Rod made it all the way to the tournament finals, but how will he fare against the self-proclaimed Greatest Intercontinental Champion Of All Time? Right off the bat, Piper tries to get things started quickly, tossing Honky Tonk over the ropes and to the arena floor below.
Wait.... what's this??
At ringside, The Honky Tonk Man is being consoled by his tag team partner Greg "The Hammer" Valentine. That's clearly against Hasbro Classic rules.... but since there's no actual referee in the ring, said rules are tough to enforce.
Offput by the ringside distraction, Rowdy Roddy Piper quickly loses his advantage, and falls prey to a fresh Honky Tonk Man. Honky Tonk is working Piper over in the ring.
Can the Rhythm & Blues tandem make a difference in this first round match?
Satisifed that he's got his opponent where he wants him, The Honky Tonk Man takes a moment to dance for his appreciative audience.
What a dumb move! While the total entertainment package is doing is doing the double-hitchhike, Rowdy Roddy Piper has recuperated! The Hot Rod reels back against the ropes, and wallops Honky Tonk!
With The Honky Tonk Man groggy, it looks like Rowdy Roddy Piper is set to trap him in his patented sleeperhold.
Just as Piper is getting ready to put Honky to sleep, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine has jumped up on the ring apron! He's grabbed Piper by the arms so that Honky Tonk can attack the Rowdy Scot!
Surely, someone can put a stop to this insanity. Where's Hasbro Jack Tunney to get involved when you need him?
How did you vote?
Hold on a minute - the interference by Greg "The Hammer" Valentine backfired! That's probably never happened before in the history of professional wrestling!
After both Valentine and The Honky Tonk Man collided on the apron, Rowdy Roddy Piper responded quickly and put Honky Tonk in (kind of) a rollup. Down for the count: One... Two.... Three!
YOUR WINNER: ROWDY RODDY PIPER!
