Matche 1: Villanos v. West Texas Rednecks
Rednecks win and Rey and Konnan run down to beat them up and the heels flee.
Match 2: Scotty Riggs v. Disco Inferno
Fairly long back and forth match. Disco wins with the Chart Buster.
A long recap of the No Limit Soldiers.
Match 3: Evan Karagias v. Prince Iaukea
Not a bad match. It was back and forth and Evan rolls him up for a three count.
Match 4: La Parka and Silver King v. Hugh Morrus and Brian Knobs
Not too bad. The Lucha’s got in some offense. Too bad Knobs had to speak….
Match 4:Barbarian v. Booker T
Booker has Barbarian in a headlock but he is shoved off and run over. They have brawled on the floor with Booker eating some steel steps. Barbarian has controlled most of the match and he gets two after an inverted atomic drop and puts him in a chinlock. Booker fights to his feet only to be shoved back down and choked out. He jumps on his back as he methodically takes him apart. Back to the chinlock. Booker is up and suplexes him. He follows up with a flying forearm smash and a sideslam. He spins to his feet and hits the Sidekick and he gets a near fall. Jimmy grabs his leg as he goes for the axe kick and Barbarian boots him to the floor. He rolls him back into the ring and gets a two count. He sandwiches him in the corner. Booker rolls him up out of nowhere for the win.
**1/2 What the fuck has happened to Booker? Bring him back…..or give him his push that he deserves.
They clearly have NOTHING for Thunder. After two or three great Thunders they go back to midcard matches. Not even midcard minus Booker T. They main event is a replay of the eight man Nitro tag match with Flair and Company….Jesus.
