Texas Death Match
2 out of 3 Falls Match
Buddy Rose beat Don Leo Jonathan in two straight falls in an excellent dismantling of the big man.
Order of Falls
1. Buddy Rose used an INSIDE BACKBREAKER into a pin to win the first fall.
2. Buddy Rose rolled through a crossbody block to win the second.
After the match, Jonathan complained that Rose had been pulling his trunks but none of the cameras saw that happening. Buddy Rose told Don Coss, “I am the Giant Killer! Jonathan can Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum his way back to his castle in the sky!”
The Destroyer and The Grappler pick up a DQ victory over Dutch Savage and Adrian Adonis when Adonis shoved the ref while outside the ring! To the shock of no one, this devolved into a brawl after the bell and all four men brawled to the locker rooms. ★
