The New Day
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!
We open round two with The New Day (Xavier Woods and Big E, with Kofi Kingston and ringside) against The Rockers (Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty).
Two of the biggest fan favorite teams in WWF/E history begin with a friendly handshake.
Right from the outset, The Rockers employ the type of quick, double-team moves that have made them so successful.
Marty Jannetty tags out to Shawn Michaels, and the two toss Xavier Woods in the ropes, coming back at him with a double hip toss. While The Rockers high-five themselves, Woods gets off the ground and charges his opponents.
The Rockers move out of the way and catch Woods with a double-clothesline. Jannetty tags in, dropkicks The New Day member, and quickly tags out again to Michaels.
Shawn Michaels attempts a superkick (not yet Sweet Chin Music) on Xavier Woods and misses!
Woods counters with an armdrag and attempts to tag out to his New Day partner Big E.
Before he can, however, Michaels grabs Woods' leg and forces him down to the mat. The Rocker applies an ankle lock to Xavier, who fights off the temptation to tap out.
Finally, Woods kicks Michaels in the mush and leaps to his corner to make the hot tag to Big E!
How did you vote?
Big E comes in a house of fire, tackling Shawn Michaels and delivering a shoulderblock to Marty Jannetty, who runs in to save his partner. From ringside, Kofi Kingston shouts at Jannetty that he shouldn't be in the ring.
With Jannetty distracted, Big E lifts Michaels high over his head and delivers a huge press slam. ONE... TWO.... Michaels kicks out!
Big E twerks during a pause in the action before picking Michaels up again and delivering a shoulderbreaker. ONE... TWO.... Michaels kicks out again.
Are The New Day gaining momentum?
Not so fast!
Big E whips Shawn Michaels into the ropes and is hit by a flying dropkick! While The New Day member is woozy, he doesn't fall to the mat. Marty Jannetty rushes in and helps his partner, this time the duo execute a double dropkick.
Michaels goes for the cover. ONE.... TWO... Xavier Woods rushes in and saves his New Day partner before it becomes a three count. Frustrated by the outside interference, Jannetty also jumps into the ring and suddenly, all four men are brawling!
All four competitors are now brawling in the ring! Big E manages to toss Shawn Michaels over the top rope to the floor below.
Using this temporary advantage, Big E scoops up Marty Jannetty and Xavier Woods leaps off the top rope to execute The Midnight Hour.
Big E quickly leaves the ring to prevent Michaels from interfering. Woods goes for the pinfall. ONE... TWO... THREE! YOUR WINNERS: THE NEW DAY!
After the match, the members of The Rockers and The New Day raise each other's arms in victory and share a friendly embrace - what good sports!
With this win, The New Day have just advanced to the semifinals of The 4th Annual Hasbro/Retro Classic, where they will take on the winner of next week's match between The Nasty Boys and Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn. Be sure to vote weekly for your chance to win a FREE Hasbro figure!
