Fulton clubs Booker from the apron and Fulton hit a swinging neck breaker. Rogers gets the hot tag to hit a dropkick off the middle rope on Ray! Rogers takes the champs over with a headlock/head scissors combo. A double missile dropkick on Ray. Booker clubs Rogers with a middle rope axe handle. Rogers hits a splash off the top but Booker nails Rogers with a top rope forearm shot. Ray covers and gets the win as Fulton was distracted by Sherri. (***. I enjoyed these two teams going at it. I haven’t seen a lot of the Fantastics but they are a good hand in the ring and were able to bump well for the champs. A good competitive match that got plenty of time.)
I didn’t cover the promos this week because it was the same people cutting the same promo about the Clash of the Champions. The main event this week was really good and allows me to give the show a thumbs up this week.
Thanks for reading.
