It was United Empire versus United Empire at night seven of World Tag League as Aussie Open’s Mark Davis and Kyle Fletcher took on The Great-O-Khan and Aaron Henare.
The match began with a slugfest between The Great-O-Khan and Mark Davis as they labeled each other with forearm smashes. Henare and Fletcher had the same idea pulling Davies, Khan out of the ring as they bounced off the ropes. Henare and Fletcher took their places in the middle of the ring pounding each other with forearm smashes.
Aussie Open got the upper hand picking up Khan and Henare slamming them into each other. Khan and Henare regained the momentum by driving Fletcher to the ground. As Khan choked him with his braid, Henare put a leg lock on Fletcher. Khan and Henare continued to dish out the punishment to Fletcher cutting him off from Davis.
All four men took turns taking each other out until they were all laid out on the canvass. Both teams got to their knees engaging in a slugfest.
Aussie Open lined up Khan and Henare back to back clobbering them both with running clotheslines.
Henare was pinned by Aussie’s Assisted Iconoslam.
Gideon Grey took to the mike after the match.
“This wasn’t about two points in World Tag League. This was about the pride beating in the hearts of each of these men in this ring!” he said.
Both teams congratulated each other and raised their arms together.
The winners of the tournament get to challenge for the titles at Wrestle Kingdom. If the champs win, they get to pick their opponents.
