Legion Of Doom
The New Day
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! This unique tournament features WWF Hasbro figures battling it out with WWE Retro figures for tag team action figure supremacy!
Our final match features The Legion Of Doom (Hawk and Animal), who defeated Rhythm & Blues, received a bye in the second round, and then toppled Demolition, against The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods, with Big E at ringside), who defeated The Twin Towers, The Rockers and The Nasty Boys to get here. Who will reign supreme in the tournament finals?
From the outset, The Legion Of Doom dominate The New Day, with Hawk and Animal working over Kofi Kingston with power-based offense.
Hawk blasts the WWE Champion with a piledriver, while Animal comes at him with a flying shoulderblock, but neither move is good enough to get a three-count on Kingston.
Eventually, the two double-team Kofi, whipping him into the ropes, only to find that....
.... Kofi Kingston still has some fight left in him, planting both members of The Legion Of Doom with a flying dropkick!
Rattled and off their game, Kingston attempts to capitalize by rolling up Hawk for a two-count. Hawk kicks out with authority, prompting Kingston to tag out to Xavier Woods.
Woods comes in hot, chopping Hawk in the chest. Unfortunately, the move is to no avail. Probably because Hawk is wearing spiked shoulder pads.
How did you vote?
His back up against a corner, Xavier Woods uses speed to his advantage against his larger opponent Hawk.
Running around the ring in an attempt to tire his Legion Of Doom foe out quickly, Woods is eventually caught with a crushing clothesline out of the corner. Hawk goes for the cover... ONE.... TWO.... Woods kicks out.
After several minutes of taking punishment, Woods tags out to Kingston, who comes in a house of fire. Kingston tags back out to Woods, setting up for...
.... The Up Up Down Down! Will this be it for The Legion Of Doom?
ONE... TWO.... Apparently not.
Hawk no-sells the hell out of The New Day's finisher and turns his attention back to Xavier Woods, working him over and slamming him down to the mat with a brutal backbreaker.
Hawk then tags out to Animal and this time... he calls for the finish.
In an incredible sequence of events, Hawk lifts Xavier Woods on his shoulders and signals for Animal to execute The Doomsday Device. But once he scales the turnbuckles, Animal is met by Kofi Kingston, who attempts to stop The LOD dead in their tracks. Unfortunately for The New Day, Kingston is shoved down to the ringside area, and while Woods is still perched on Hawk's shoulders, Animal delivers The Doomsday Device.
Animal makes the cover. ONE... TWO.... THREE!
