|By Raj Giri||September 22, 2012 | Comments|
Earl Hebner came out to "Man in the Box" by Alice and Chains (Tommy Dreamer's old entrance music). He went after a fan in the crowd, but was held back. He ripped off his referee shirt to reveal the "Damn Right I Did!" shirt. He put on the Bret Hart shades and did the strut. He also spit at a fan.
Match 4: Robbie E & Robbie T vs. Eric Young & ODB
Young and ODB put on the Robbies' Cardigans. Robbie E grabs a mic and tells everyone that the cardigans are $1000.
Robbie E gets back in the ring and tells Young & ODB that no one wants to watch him and Big Rob wrestle some hamsters. They want to watch them Fist Pump. After some dancing, Young & ODB have their turn to "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-A-Lot.
The match was mostly Young vs. The Robbies'. Good back and forth work and solid tag wrestling by The Robbies'. ODB is tagged in and low blows Robbie T, then Robbie E. She rolls up Robbie E. for the three count and the win.
After the match, Young & ODB dance in the ring, once again to "Baby Got Back."
Match 5: Gunner w/ Kid Kash vs. Rob Van Dam:
Back and forth match with some interference from Kash. After being caught interfering a second time, Kash is ejected. While Kash was being thrown out, Gunner played possum and hit a DDT and took control. Gunner got a few close 2 counts. The referee got knocked out and Kash came back out and stops RVD from doing the 5 Star Frog Splash. Kash hit his moonsault for a Gunner 2. RVD fights back and gets the win with the 5 Star Frog Splash.
Bound For Glory Tag Team Lottery Match (teams were drawn at random)
Bobby Roode & Austin Aries vs. James Storm & Jeff Hardy
Roode and Storm start the match, but Roode tags Aries before seeing any action. Storm then tagged Hardy.
Aries and Hardy go back and forth with some arm drags. Roode is 'dying of laughter' on the apron. Aries walks over and "not so nicely" tags Roode. As Roode and Aries argue, Hardy tags in Storm. Roode tries to tag Aries, but he drops off the apron. Storm opens up with a flurry of offense, including a really solid punch to the jaw. Roode leaves the ring to a chorus of boos. He finally gets back in and take control. Storm fights back and both are down. They attempt to make tags to their respective partners. Storm succeeds, while Roode gets the bird as Aries jumps off the apron. Hardy hits some quick offense for a 2 count. Hardy goes to Irish whip Roode, but he is reversed and ends up hitting Aries in the corner. Hardy hits the Twist of Fate on Roode. Aries hits a flying cross body on Hardy. Storm hits Aries with Closing Time, his version of the Codebreaker. Roode is up and hits Storm with the Double R Spine Buster. Roode is the only one standing and goes and grabs the title. He is in the ring lining up Hardy, but Aries grabs the title. They play Tug-of-War with the title and Aries lets go. The title hits Roode in the head. Roode turns around into a Last Call Super Kick. Hardy hits the Twist of Fate again for the 3 count.
After the match, Aries takes the mic and tells Hardy he can have the ring. Though this is usually his time to interact with the fans; but, because they're in Hardy's home state, he will hand the ring over and he'll see him at Bound For Glory.
