Bunkhouse Brawl: The Von Erichs vs. Team Filthy (w/Kevin Ku & Kit Osbourne) (w/Tom Lawlor)

Before the match is underway, Tom Lawlor asks for a microphone and receives one. Lawlor opens his promo by saying it’s good to be back in front of a live crowd after 16 months. But he thinks the crowd for tonight are not the type of spectators he’d like to see and perform for. He doesn’t believe the fans deserve to see anyone from Team Filthy compete. The fans respond with resounding boos.

Ross and Marshall Von Erich make their way out and take their fight to Team Filthy. Ross and Marshall send both Kevin Ku and Kit Osbourne to the outside. Now, all four men spill out of the ring. Ku pounds a chop onto Ross’ chest. On the other side of the ring, Marshall puts Osbourne in a wheelbarrow and propels him towards the ring post. Ku, Ross and Marshall make their way back into the ring. The Von Erichs throw Ku to the turnbuckle with a powerful Irish Whip. Ross comes firing at him with a superman punch. Marshall then hits a standing moonsault for a two-count.

Osbourne slides into the ring. The Von Erichs hit a massive cutter for another near-fall. Marshall and Ku continue their brawl from earlier. Ku catches Marshall with a dragon screw leg whip. They retreat to the outside and exchange hard-hitting chops. Ross drops Osbourne onto the apron. Marshall hammers down forearm strikes on the back of Ku’s neck. Marshall plants a dropkick on Osbourne in the ring. Then to Ku. Tom Lawlor climbs up on the apron and distracts Marshall for a brief moment.

Osbourne connects a dragon screw leg whip of his own. On the outside, Ku drives a shovel down on the neck of Ross. Marshell lays down more chops on Osbourne. Ross whacks Ku across the face with the shovel while Osbourne hits a DDT on Ross. It looked like Ross’s landing was right near a two-by-four that was planted at ringside, but he never landed on top of it. Ku brings the shovel into the ring and smacks Marshall right in the leg with it. Ku gets Ross fired up after a round of chops. Ku crumbles from an enziguri by Ross, but he doesn’t stop there. Ross then drives Ku on the mat with a suplex-turned falcon arrow. Ross eagerly looks to end this thing, but Osbourne breaks it up.

Ross sets some steel chairs up. Osbourne slides in a piece of plywood. Ku and Osbourne team up on Ross. Ku sends Ross right on top of the chairs. Ku with a cover. Ross kicks out at 2.9! Lawlor heads to the apron with a two-by-four in hand. He tries to hit Ross with it, but Ross ducks down. Ku, instead, takes the brute end of it and gets thumped right on top of his skull! Marshall sends Lawlor into the ring post. Ross uses the two-by-four on Osbourne and only grabs a near-fall count.

The Von Erichs sent the plywood on top of the two chairs in the ring. Ku is underneath, and Osbourne is sitting on top. Marshall scales the ropes and comes down hard with an unbelievable moonsault! The board splits in two! Marshall climbs on top of Osbourne and Ku for a cover. 1-2-3, The Von Erichs reign victorious in this vicious contest!
