The Ascension (c) vs. The American Pitbulls
Richards and Victor lock up to begin the match. Richards is for some reason now named Derek Billington and Edwards is now John Cahill. Who comes up with this stuff?! Victor takes early control. Billington manages to get to the corner and bring in Billington. The Ascension also makes a tag.
Billington makes a tag as O’Brian sends Cahill into the ropes (I hope you appreciate me sticking with these awful awful names WWE). A couple of nice double-teams from the Pitbulls, the latter sends Victor to the outside.
O’Brian takes out Billington before bringing Victor back in. I heard Richards got a neck injury in this match, I can see why, ouch! Victor lifts Billington up for a belly to back; Billington goes to use the momentum to land on his feet. He doesn’t quite spin over properly and ends up landing awkwardly on his head. Like I said, ouch!
Victor goes for the same move and this time Billington lands correctly. Billington makes toward The Pitbulls’ corner to make the tag. Victor holds Billington’s leg to stop him but Billington connects with an enziguri second time lucky. Cahill comes in.
He takes down Victor and goes after O’Brian in the corner. Running high knee from Cahill on Victor. Pin broke up by O’Brian. O’Brian sent to the outside after Cahill drops the rope. Victor sent flying after him. Double suicide dive from The American Pitbulls.
Back in the ring, Billington tagged in and he goes up top. Billington lets out a howl (a bit like a wolf would do) and drops a big head-butt onto Victor. Two-count. Billington off the ropes but Victor with a big counter and a tag to O’Brian.
Victor takes out Cahill and The Ascension hit the Fall of Man to retain.
Winners: The Ascension
After the match, Hunico and Camacho are out to the ramp to stare down the Champs. In response, Ascension send a message to them with a double team on Cahill before hitting another Fall of Man. They held their belts in the direction of Hunico & Camacho.
