The New Day
The Nasty Boys
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 first of two semifinal matches in the tournament features The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Big E, with Xavier Woods at ringside) against The Nasty Boys (Brian Knobbs and Jerry Sags). Who will this epic, cross-generational contest and advance to the finals of The 4th Annual Hasbro/Retro Classic?
From the outset, The Nasty Boys attempt to cut the ring in half, making quick tags and double-teaming a hapless Kofi Kingston.
All but ignoring the imaginary referee's five count, Brian Knobbs and Jerry Sags keep jumping in the ring together, ignoring the rules and attempting to shut down KofiMania before The New Day member can rally.
Grabbing both of Kingston's arms, Knobbs and Sags whip him into the ropes, only to discover.....
..... that Kofi Kingston has a few tricks up his sleeve as well!
Blindsiding Brian Knobbs and Jerry Sags, Kingston leaps into the air and delivers a huge dropkick that looks physically impossible from a mechanics standpoint. But we're just going to blame that on shoddy camera work. Yeah, camera work - that's it...
With both Nasty Boys down and out, Kingston make the hot tag to his partner, Big E!
How did you vote?
Big E comes into the ring a house of fire, relieving Kofi Kingston, who appears too exhausted to even stand up on the ring apron.
Like a man possessed, Big E delivers vicious shoulderblocks to both Jerry Sags and Brian Knobbs.
Knobbs is clotheslined over the top rope. Big E then slams Sags over his head and traps The Nasty Boy in his patented finisher, The Big Ending.
Big E goes the cover. Will this be it?
Apparently this will not be it.
As Big E goes for the cover, Brian Knobbs enters the ring to break up the count. This causes Kofi Kingston to run into the ring and brawl with Knobbs.
But wait. Who's that? It's The Mountie! Eagle-eyed fans of The 4th Annual Hasbro/Retro Classic will recall that the faux law enforcement officer secured Nasty Boys wins over The Shield and the team of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn in previous rounds.
The Mountie may be handsome, brave and strong.... but will he be able to secure another win for Knobbs and Sags?
With The Mountie perched on the ring apron, Xavier Woods runs around ringside and trips up the Nasty Boy stablemate. The Mountie won't be able to shock his way to another victory for his allies!
With The Mountie out of the picture, Kofi Kingston tackles Brian Knobbs, while Big E tosses Jerry Sags out of the ring.
The momentum is beginning to shift again!
With Jerry Sags out of the ring and in Nasty shape, and with The Mountie under house arrest, Big E lifts up Brian Knobbs over his shoulder. Kofi Kingston scales the ropes and leaps down to deliver the Up Up Down Down. Or maybe that's The Midnight Hour? Readers?
Kingston covers Knobbs for the pin. ONE... TWO... THREE! YOUR WINNERS: THE NEW DAY!!!
It's a New Day - yes it is! Kingston, E and Woods are headed to the finals of this tournament, where they'll meet the winner of next week's match between The Legion of Doom and Demolition!
