The Natural Disasters
Second 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!
The final match of the tournament's second round features Demolition (Smash and Crush, with Ax in their corner) against The Natural Disasters (Earthquake and Typhoon). Right from the beginning, the nearly 500-pound Earthquake dominates Smash, hammering with forearms to the back and then picking him up over his head and slamming him down to the mat!
Smash eventually makes his way to the corner and tags in to Crush. The 6"7 Hawaiian surprises Typhoon with a clothesline, but the Natura Disaster quickly makes his way to a friendly corner and tags in Earthquake.
Over the next several minutes, The Natural Disasters make quick tags in and out of the ring, keeping Crush in their corner and slowly wearing him down.
Is it possible the huge Disasters have figured out the secret to toppling the 3-time Tag Team Champions Demolition?
Holding on to their momentum, Earthquake lifts up Crush with a powerslam. ONE... TWO.... Crush kicks out!
Groggy from battling back against two 400-plus pounders, the Demolition member is no match for his huge foes when Quake tags out to Typhoon.
Holding Crush's arms behind his back, Earthquake keeps the Kona native steady while Typhoon bounces off the ropes and prepares to finish the Demolition member off with a huge clothesline. You'll never guess what happens next.... unless you've watched at least one wrestling match before.
How did you vote?
At the last possible moment, Crush ducks out of the way, freeing himself from the vise-like grip of Earthquake. Without Crush standing in the way, Typhoon accidentally clotheslines his own partner!
(I know - we were shocked, too.)
While Earthquake rolls to the outside of the ring for safety (where he's pummeled mercilessly by a vengeful Demolition Ax), Crush slowly gets to his feet and before you can say "Pain and Destruction are their middle names," he makes the hot tag to Demolition Smash!
As the fresh man in, Demolition Smash rocks Typhoon with running shoulderblocks and clotheslines until he eventually forces the future Shockmaster to collapse on the mat.
Smash tags out to Crush once more and, in a superhuman display of strength, the big man lifts up Typhoon into a backbreaker position.
With Typhoon perched on Crush's knee, Smash scales the turnbuckles and delivers the Demolition Decapitation maneuver to Typhoon. Crush goes for the pinfall. ONE... TWO.... THREE! YOUR WINNERS: DEMOLITION!
With The Natural Disasters tasting defeat, Demolition raises their arms in victory.
From here, the Demos will face their legendary rivals The Legion Of Doom in the semi-finals of the tournament in about two weeks time.
