Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn
FIRST ROUND MATCH
Welcome to The 4th Annual Hasbro/Retro Classic, a tournament where you determine the winners... and just by voting, you could qualify to win a FREE Hasbro figure when the tournament concludes this spring! This unique tournament features WWF Hasbro figures battling it out with WWE Retro figures for tag team action figure supremacy!
This week in first-round action, we have The Bushwhackers (Luke and Butch) against the team of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
At the outset of the match, The Bushwhackers nail an unsuspecting KO with their patented double-clothesline!
Dizzy and thoroughly confused, Kevin Owens finds himself the victim of a second Bushwhacker clothesline! Will this match be over before it even begins?
The Prizefighter eventually finds his groove and manages to toss Butch out of the ring. Luke is soon knocked to the canvas himself.
With both Bushwhackers down on their backs, Owens takes the opportunity to trash talk the veteran tag team about their sardine-eating habits. From there, Owens makes the tag out to Sami Zayn.
Once Sami Zayn tags in, he begins mocking The Bushwhackers' patented walk, a huge grin on his face the entire time (though, to be fair.... he's an action figure, so his face permanently has a smile on it anyways.)
After a few minutes of making fun of them, The Bushwhackers have had enough. Butch uses Luke's head as a battering ram to knock The Underdog From The Underground down to the mat.
From there, Luke and Butch begin stomping all over Zayn with reckless abandon. Sensing his partner is in trouble, Kevin Owens runs in to make the save, avoiding a two-count from the wacky New Zealanders.
How did you vote?
With Butch temporarily distracted by Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn sneaks up from behind and nails Luke with his patented helluva kick. Zayn goes for the cover. One... Two.... Luke kicks out!
Trying to maintain the advantage, Zayn nails The Bushwhacker with a standing dropkick and then an elbowsmash. That's only good for a one count, and Zayn is visibly frustrated with his inability to put his opponent down.
(Well, I guess not visibly - you can still see him smiling).
After several pinfall attempts, Zayn tags back out to Kevin Owens to bring the heavy artillery to The Bushwhackers.
Kevin Owens makes his way into the ring, battering both Bushwhackers with a series of rights and lefts. French Canada is slowly but surely starting to topple New Zealand here.
Soon, KO whips Butch to the ropes and catches him mid-air for his patented pop-up powerbomb. Owens goes for the pin. One.... Two.... Three! YOUR WINNERS: KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN
Owens and Zayn become the third team (including The Rockers and The New Day) to qualify for the second round of The 4th Annual Hasbro/Retro Classic. Do they have the potential to go all the way this year?
YEP! YEP! YEP!
