Jake The Snake Roberts
Round Two Matchup
Welcome to second round action here in the Hasbro Classic, pitting WWF icon Hulk Hogan against the always-dangerous Jake "The Snake" Roberts. The Hulkster got past Rick Rude last round, as did Jake The Snake with "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan. This promises to be an even tougher test for both men.
Right off the bat, Roberts attacks Hogan with his spring-loaded right arm, knocking The Hulkster down to the canvas. It's obvious that any sort of friendship is being thrown on the window here, with so much on the line.
Roberts continues to punish Hogan with chokes and kicks, and even sets The Hulkster up for his patented DDT!
But Hogan, very much still fresh at this point, manuevers his way out of the hold and starts Hulking Up early. Hogan bounces off the ropes and smashes The Snake with a big clothesline. Then, summoning the strength of all of his Hulkamaniacs, Hogan picks Roberts up and delivers a bone-crushing bodyslam!
Cupping his ear to the crowd, it looks like Hogan's patented legdrop could be introduced shortly!
With Roberts groggy on the mat, Hogan is indeed setting up for the legdrop!
But wait, what's this? Hogan's "friend to the end" Brutus Beefcake has come down to ringside! Hasbro Classic followers will remember that The Barber was eliminated in the first round by Giant Gonzales.
But why is he climbing up on the apron now to get The Hulkster's attention? And wait.... who's that in the background? Is that..... a SECOND Brutus Beefcake behind Hogan?
It is, indeed, TWO Brutus The Barber Beefcakes here at ringside, trying to distract Hulk Hogan! How much did they pay for the plastic surgery, brother?
With Hogan distracted by the evil twin Beefcakes, Jake The Snake Roberts has fully recovered! With no referee in sight (well, none really this entire tournament so far), The Barbers hold Hogan while Roberts attacks The Hulkster from behind.
Never mind the mystery of the twin Beefcakes.... could they possibly be in cahoots with The Snake?
Groggy, confused and disoriented, Hogan is no match for Roberts and his mysterious Twin Beefcakes. As much as he tries to rally, Hogan is no match for Jake The Snake's venomous DDT!
Hogan is down for the count. One - Two - Three! Your winner.... JAKE "THE SNAKE" ROBERTS!!!
This is, by the far, the biggest upset in Hasbro Classic history! Why has Roberts aligned himself with not one, but two, Brutus Beefcakes? What will this mean for the rest of the tournament?
