    Default King of Wrestling Tournament- 2006

    The 2006 edition of The King of Wrestling Tournament will consist of wrestlers who held recognized championships and tournaments in 2006 from the following promotions. WWE, TNA, Chikara, AAA, Noah, CMLL, ROH, OVW, NJPW, NWA, and AJPW as well as award winners from Pro Wrestling Illustrated and The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The field will consist of the following wrestlers.

    The Commentators
    Spoiler


    The format will be a little different from most years: the first round will consist of 4 on 4 elimination matches in which only survivors will advance. There will be a second chance battle royal for some of those who were eliminated to get back into the tournament. The remaining rounds will be one on one unless there are an odd number of participants in a round, in which case a special multi-man match will take place. The final round will consist of 4 to 6 wrestlers in a round robin format. All rounds other than the first and last will be simple elimination.

    Hewitt: Hi folks, I’m “Pitchfork” Brad Hewitt alongside “The Ageless Wonder” Truls Lomo. Truls, what can we expect from the first round?

    Lomo: The biggest stars of the year and a lot of eliminations. At least half of the competitors will be out by the end of this round. The wrestlers were allowed to choose their own teams for this round, but any slot that couldn’t be filled was filled at random, so there could be a little infighting.

    Charly Manson/ Takao Omori/ Minoru Suzuki/ Jeff Hardy vs. Roddy Piper/ Ric Flair/ Masahiro Chono/ Shinsuke Nakamra

    Chono starts off in the ring and waits for his opponents to choose a starter. After a lot of discussion and stalling by the Extreme Family, Chono takes matters into his own hands by giving Manson an elbow between the shoulder blades. Chono pulls Manson to the middle of the ring as the official ushers Omori, Suzuki, and Hardy out of the ring. Chono does a belly to back suplex and tags in Piper.

    Manson is still disoriented and is facing away from his opponents when he gets up. Piper seizes the advantage with a sleeper hold. Manson bends over to pull Piper onto his back and carries him to his corner where Omori knocks Piper off of his partner with a punch between the eyes and tags in.

    Omori runs to the ropes and levels Piper with a lariat. Omori helps Piper to his feet and does the axe guillotine driver followed by a cover…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: Just like that it’s 4 on 3.

    Hewitt: For all his experience, Piper should’ve known he couldn’t finish off Charly Manson that early.

    Flair, stomps on Omori’s head almost a full second late to save his partner. Omori is quick to his feet and receives a chop from Flair. Omori fires back with a chop of his own, but Flair fires back. Omori, being in his corner, tags out and Flair backs to the middle of the ring.

    Hardy comes into the ring and locks up with Flair. Hardy does an armdrag, but misses with a leg drop. Hardy rolls out of the way of an elbow drop from Flair, only for Flair to have faked him out. As Hardy tries to get up, Flair is already running. Hardy falls to the mat due to a running shoulder block. Flair continues on to the ropes and drops a knee, but Hardy rolls to his corner and tags in Suzuki.

    Suzuki steps into the ring and strikes Flair across the face. Flair responds with a chop and Suzuki give Flair a kick to the gut. Suzuki turns Flair over with a standing Oklahoma roll…
    1…
    2..
    Flair kicks out. Suzuki is the first man up and he punches Flair back to a neutral corner. Suzuki whips Flair across the ring and Flair flips over the top turnbuckle and runs along the apron, but gets knocked off the apron by an elbow from Manson. Suzuki tags in Hardy.

    Hardy runs to the ropes across the ring as the referee begins to count Flair out of the ring. Hardy does a plancha, but Flair, who was on his knees, rolls out of the way. Flair is not able to dodge the elbow that Manson drops on him from the apron. This move, naturally, causes Chono and Nakamura to run around the ring and a full on fracas breaks out. Most of the competitors appear to forget who their opponents are and this allows Flair to slip into the ring. Suzuki is not far behind Flair and the referee doesn’t watch the slugfest in the ring because he is counting out Hardy. As the ref counts to 10, Flair lands a low blow on Suzuki. The ref turns around to see Flair roll Suzuki up in a small package…
    1…
    2…

    Hewitt: Wooeee! I didn’t see that one comin’

    Lomo: He’s not the dirtiest player in the game for nothing.

    Hewitt: So what’s that? 3 on 2 now?

    Lomo: Well, with Jeff Hardy and Minoru Suzuki out, I guess it is.

    Flair looks to his corner, but nobody is there. The official exits the ring to help the officials who have come from the back to break up the fight going on outside. Hardy, who had already been backed away from the fracas, does a pretty good job of breaking it up on his own by running on the barricade and landing on top of Chono and one of the officials breaking up the fight. At his first opportunity, Flair tags in Nakamura while Omori is coming in.

    Omori and Nakamura meet in the middle of the ring, both with clotheslines. Both men get up and Omori gets the upper hand with a chop and an Irish whip. Nakamura rebounds off the ropes and gets a back body drop. Nakamura gets up and Omori gives him a superkick, which sends Nakamura into the ropes where he gets his arms caught in the top and middle ropes. This compromising position allows Omori to measure his opponent for a full shot. The ref tries to back Omori away, but decides that keeping Chono, who is halfway across the ring already, away from the action is more important. This distraction allows Manson to get in on the action and it becomes a two man beatdown. When the ref turns around, he does break up the beat down. As the official gets Nakamura out of the ropes, Manson and Omori tag.

    Manson comes into the ring and he and his partner whip Nakamura across the ring. After a double dropkick, Manson covers Nakamura…
    1… Omori positions himself to keep his opponents from interfering.
    2…
    Nakamura kicks out. Manson brings Nakamura to his feet as the official tries to get Omori out of the ring. Manson whips Nakamura across the ring and Nakamura comes off with a crossbody, but the ref doesn’t see the pin due to his attempt to get Omori out of the ring. Nakamura tries to get up, but Manson is ready for him with a snap suplex. Manson drops an elbow then pulls his opponent to his feet and lifts him in a standing fireman’s carry. Nakamura slips off Manson’s back and does a double knee backbreaker. Both men are able to tag out.

    Chono meets Omori in the middle of the ring with a leaping shoulder block. Omori gets up and takes a manhattan drop. Chono goes for an STS, but Manson breaks up before Chono can fully apply the hold. Although Manson is able to get onto the apron without any trouble, he gets kicked in the head and is knocked off the apron. When Chono turns around, Omori tries to surprise him with a running clothesline, but Chono dodges the attack, causing him to hit the turnbuckle. Chono rolls up Omori in a school boy…
    1…
    2...
    3
    Chono goes to his corner and tags in Fliar. Chono runs to the other side of the ring and helps Manson to his feet. After ramming Manson’s back into the side of the ring, he rolls Manson inside. Flair takes Manson by the feet and does a little dancing before locking in the figure 4. Manson taps out quickly.

    Hewitt: So that’s it. This match is over and Ric Flair, Masahiro Chono, and Shinsuke Nakamura go to the next round.

    Lomo: But don’t forget that everybody who was eliminated has a chance to be randomly selected to enter the battle royal after this round. The drawing will be weighted to favor wrestlers who eliminated opponents, so Takao Omori has a better chance than the others to get into that battle royal.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

    Default Re: King of Wrestling Tournament- 2006

    Lomo: This could be something big. One team has some up and comers as well as a ring veteran in El Samurai, and their opponents, The Dark Family, got into this tournament by holding an 8 man tag championship for most of the year.

    El Samurai/ Ryusuke Taguchi/ Naomichi Marufuji/ Icarus vs. Chessman/ Dark Curevo/ Escoria/ Dark Ozz

    As soon as the bell rings, Chessman runs across the ring and knocks the apparent starter for his opponents, Icarus, over the top rope with a clothesline while he is trying to talk to his partners. Icarus appears to have injured his leg upon the landing and is unable to get into the ring by the ten count. Once Icarus’s elimination is announced, Chessman celebrates while Taguchi runs along the apron and climbs to the top rope in a neutral corner. Once Chessman faces said corner, Taguchi jumps off for a crossbody. Chessman rolls through to wind up on top of Taguchi…
    1…
    2..
    Taguchi kicks out.

    Hewitt: Wouldn’t that have been a bad start?

    Lomo: Being down by one this early is bad enough.

    Both men get to their feet. Chessman throws a punch, but Taguchi blocks it and lands one of his own. Taguchi puts Chessman into a top wristlock and uses this leverage position to back him into a neutral corner. Rather than wait for the ref to get involved, Taguchi backs off on his own- then runs in with a dropkick. Taguchi pulls Chessman out of the corner and does a fisherman’s suplex…
    1…
    2..
    Chessman kicks out and quickly starts trying to make it to his corner. Chessman quickly finds himself in a waistlock, but continues to reach for a tag and is able to make it just before Taguchi pulls him to the middle of the ring. Escoria runs into the ring and puts Taguchi in a waistlock. Both Taguchi and Escoria do a German suplex and hold for the pin with Escoria holding down Taguchi and Taguchi trying to pin Chessman…
    1…
    2…
    3
    Escoria prepares for his next opponent and Chessman rolls out of the ring while Taguchi, as well as the men on the apron appear confused by the situation. The ref points to Chessman and signals a tag. He then points to both Taguchi and Escoria then taps his own shoulders and claps his hands three times to indicate the count. For further clarification, he points to both men then points to the entrance ramp.

    Lomo: The ref seems to be saying that both Taguchi and Escoria had their shoulders down, but Chessman was not the legal man.

    Samurai, Marufuji, Cuervo, and Ozz all enter the ring either the protest the official’s call or to get into the match. Inevitably a fight breaks out between the two teams and the ref is virtually helpless to get anybody out of the ring. Despite his efforts, threats, and counts, the four men continue to go at it. The official does the only thing he hasn’t done yet and disqualifies each man in the ring.

    Hewitt: So nobody advances?

    Lomo: Wrong. Chessman was out of the ring, so he is the sole survivor.

    Hewitt: It’s like somebody got really lazy and needed a way to eliminate a bunch of guys quickly.

    Lomo (quietly): Shut up.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

    Lomo: This is an interesting match. One side has two tag teams who were champions on different sides of the world who were joined by mutual respect. The other team is rumored to have been paid to join the team by the captain.

    Hewitt: Probably selected by his image consultant down there. Don’t she look good tonight?

    Lomo: No, not really.

    Minoru/Hirooki Goto/Chris Sabin/Alex Shelley vs. John “Bradshaw” Layfield (w/ Jillian Hall)/ Samoa Joe/ Brock Lesnar/ Giant Bernard

    Lesnar and Minoru start off in the ring. Lesnar does not appear to take his smaller opponent seriously and holds both hands behind his back, sticking his chin out for Minoru to get a free shot. Minoru decides to go in a different direction and grabs one of Lesnar’s legs for a leg drag takedown. When Lesnar gets up, Minoru runs to him with a flying clothesline. The big guy stays on his feet, but is off balance. Minoru tags in Shelley.

    After a double dropkick, Lesnar falls out of the ring. Shelley runs to the ropes, but gets a knee in his back. Lesnar comes back into the ring and gives Shelley an elbow followed by a few knees to the gut. Lesnar tosses Shelley to the side so that his head is on the middle rope. Lesnar chokes Shelley on the rope until the ref intervenes. Lesnar backs away, distracting the ref and allowing Layfield to drop a forearm across the back of Shelley’s head. Lesnar goes to his corner and tags out.

    Lesnar stands up Shelley and holds him in place as Bernard comes in and measures Shelley for a bicycle kick. Bernard then backs into the ropes and comes off with a big splash…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: That was fast.

    Hewitt: Well, they’re that big and they cheat.

    Goto runs in and gives Bernard a few shots to the head. Bernard blocks one then pulls Goto in for a bearhug. Joe slaps Bernard on the back and steps into the ring. Joe runs to the ropes and comes off with a splash to crush Goto between himself and Bernard. Bernard drops Goto and Joe covers him…
    1…
    2…
    Goto kicks out. Joe decides to turn Goto over and wear him down with a headlock. Goto stretches out for the rope, but Joe scooches along the mat to put them out of reach. Goto gets his feet under himself and is able to stand up, which appears to give Joe more control as he pulls Goto around by the head to the middle of the ring. Goto picks up one of Joe’s legs then sweeps the other, sending Joe to the mat with Goto on top of him. Goto lands a few punches until Joe pushes him off. Goto goes for his corner to tag out, but Joe gets a hold of his leg. Both men get to their feet and Goto swings his free leg around for an enzuigiri, but Joe ducks the kick. Joe drops to the mat to put Goto into a coquina clutch. Minoru jumps into the ring, but Goto taps out before he can receive any aid.

    Lomo: This could get ugly fast.

    Minoru puts the boots to Joe until he gets up. That’s when the stomps are replaced by kicks. Joe takes a step back and throws a punch, but Minoru ducks it and goes behind him. Minoru attempts a belly to back suplex, but he struggles to get both feet of his opponent off the mat. An elbow from Joe stops his momentum cold. Joe turns around and does an old fashioned body slam to Minoru and follows it up with a knee drop. Joe pulls his opponent to his feet and is caught off guard by a flying cross arm breaker. Joe takes a moment to realize his situation and feel the pain then, rather than even consider reaching for the ropes, he rolls toward his opponent and folds him up. Joe picks up Minoru by the head with his free hand and runs his back into a corner. After dropping Minoru in the corner, Joe tags in Lesnar.

    Lesnar comes in and puts Minoru in a Brock lock. Minoru is able to reach the ropes, but a boot from Layfield puts an end to that. Lesnar gets closer to the middle of the ring and Minoru is forced to submit.

    Hewitt: One on four now.

    Lomo: Just remember that Chris Sabin can increase his chances of getting into the second chance battle royal by getting an elimination.

    Hewitt: Are you giving up on him beating all four?

    Lomo: That one against those four? Yes.

    Lesnar tries to lock up with Sabin, but Sabin dodges him. Sabin fires off a chop followed by a second. Lesnar responds by pushing Sabin to the mat, but Sabin is right back up. Sabin dropkicks Lesnar in the knee then takes a step back to give him a knee to the head, but Lesnar gets up and puts Sabin down with a spinebuster. Lesnar stands his opponent up then brings him onto his shoulders. Sabin slips off the shoulders before Lesnar can hit the F5 and jumps on Lesnar’s back for a sleeper hold. Lesnar backs into his own corner where Bernard tags in.

    Bernard stuns Sabin with a shot to the back of the head. Lesnar leaves the ring, but not before backing into the corner again for good measure. Bernard wastes no time picking up Sabin by the throat, turning around for position and driving Sabin into the mat with a modified power bomb. Bernard stays in position for the pin…
    1…
    2…

    Lomo: All four men survive. If JBL did pay them, it was money well spent.

    Hewitt: You’re telling me? I don’t think he set foot in the ring at all.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

    Hewitt: Is that a bunch of male cheerleaders?

    Lomo: Yes it is. The Spirit Squad has Mitch in their corner, but he will be wrestling later.

    Hewitt: And how did they make that decision?

    Lomo: I guess they drew spirit straws.

    Gran Akuma/ Austin Aries/ Roderick Strong/ Claudio Castagloni vs. Kenny/ Johnny/ Mikey/ Nicky w/ Mitch

    Akuma starts off in the ring against Kenny. They lock up and Akuma pushes Kenny back to his own corner. Johnny and Nicky grab one of Akuma’s arms while Kenny and Mikey take a few cheap shots. While the official reprimands the guys in the corner, Kenny takes Akuma to the ropes and receives an item from Mitch. Kenny whips Akuma across the ring. Kenny swings his right hand, but Akuma slides between his legs and sends him to the mat with a dropkick. Akuma picks up Kenny’s legs and tries to turn him over, but Kenny nails him between the eyes with the foreign object. He climbs on top of Akuma and the ref comes in to make the count…
    1…
    2…
    Akuma kicks out. Kenny looks to the ref and protest and even does his own count on his hands. By doing so, he reveals the foreign object still in his hand and the official orders him to leave the ring.

    Lomo: Kenny is gone.

    Hewitt: That won’t do much good for Akuma; he’s got 3 more guys.

    Johnny rushes into the ring and stomps on Akuma a few times before bringing him to his feet. Johnny whips Akuma into a neutral corner and follows him in with an elbow. Johnny plays to the crowd a little then whips Akuma across the ring. This time Akuma falls to the side so Johnny hits the corner. Both men try to tag out, but Johnny is the first to his corner and a kick to the ribs from Nicky stops Akuma.

    Nicky stands Akuma up and gives him a vertical suplex. Nicky sits Akuma up and delivers a knee to the back. Nicky takes Akuma back down with a headlock and does a handstand much to the delight of his teammates. Less delighted is Strong who comes into the ring and boots Nicky in the stomach. The ref reprimands Strong as he leaves the ring and thus allows Nicky to choke Akuma. Nicky brings Akuma to his feet once the official turns around, but is surprised when Akuma does a jawbreaker and follows up with an exploder suplex. Both men stay on the mat as the referee makes his count. Before he gets to five, Nicky gets to his corner and tags out. Akuma makes contact with Castognoli not long after. Castagnoli’s first move upon getting into the ring is the headbutt a charging Mikey in the chest. Castagnoli covers Mikey…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: Castagnoli gets the pin after a move right out of the World Cup and it’s 2 on 4.

    Hewitt: 2 on 3. Akuma is in the match, but he’ll be out for a while.

    Johnny rushes into the ring, but runs right into an elbow. Castagnoli takes Johnny to a neutral corner head first then lays into him with a few strikes, ending the flurry with a discus European uppercut. Castagnoli hiptosses Johnny out of the corner. Johnny stands up and gets put right back down with a lariat. Castagnoli goes to his corner for a tag, but Akuma is still trying to get his head straight and the other two partners hold up their hands and tell Castagnoli he’s doing too well to come out. While this is going on, Johnny rolls up Castagnoli…
    1…
    2..
    Castagnoli kicks out. Johnny struggles to get to his feet and is not aided when Castagnoli grabs his ankles and brings him to the center of the ring. Before he can start the giant swing, Nicky gives Castagnoli a shot to the back. Castagnoli chases Nicky back to his corner, but the cheerleader escapes. When Castagnoli turns around, he is greeted with a forearm to the jaw. Johnny backs away, but he’s not as lucky as his partner; Castagnoli grabs him by the arm into a fireman’s carry. Castagnoli turns around and does a death valley driver followed by a lateral press…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: Castagnoli is unstoppable.

    Hewitt: There’s just one of them cheerleaders left.

    Nicky runs into the ring and Castagnoli gives him a body slam immediately followed by a leg drop. Castagnoli picks up Nicky and whips him across the ring, but Nicky reverses it. Aries pulls down the top rope and Castagnoli tumbles out of the ring. The ref begins to count, but Nicky stops the count by acting like he wants to go out after his opponent and the ref backs him up. Mitch runs around the ring and gives Castagnoli and chop block. Akuma chases after Mitch, but neither Aries nor Strong seem to be concerned. As the count goes on, Aries drops off the apron and gets between his teammate and the ring. Castagnoli pushes Aries out of the way, but it was a split second too late as the ref gets to 10.

    Hewitt: Was Aries trying to keep Castalogni out?

    Lomo: I think so. He eliminated a strong opponent from the later rounds.
    Strong comes into the ring and gets hit with a dropkick from Nicky. Nicky dives on top of Strong with a sleeper, but Strong gets up quickly and runs Nicky into the nearest corner. Nicky breaks the hold. Strong rakes Nicky’s eyes across the ropes until he gets to his corner and tags Aries.

    Strong picks Nicky up as in a belly to back suplex, but holds him in the air. Aries runs to the ropes and comes off with a leaping neckbreaker. Aries climbs the ropes and does a 450 splash.
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: That’s the end of the match. Keep watching folks, we’ve got more action to come.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

    Genki Horiguchi/ Ryo Saito/ Dragon Kid/ Mistico vs. Satoshi Kojima/ Hiroyoshi Tenzan/ Jacob Duncan/ Kaz Hayashi

    Hayashi and Horiguchi get into a collar and elbow tie up. Horiguchi tries to go behind with a hammerlock, but Hayashi turns with him and puts him in an armbar. Hayashi puts his heel into Horiguchi’s stomach then puts the toe of his boot into his head. Hayashi wrings the arm again and Horiguchi flips to the mat. Hayashi drops a leg across the arm. Horiguchi goes to the nearest corner, which happens to be his opponents’ corner. Kojima, Tenzan, and Duncan all get a shot in on Horiguchi before Hayashi puts him back in an armbar. Hayashi tags in Tenzan, who climbs to the top rope and comes in with an elbow across Horiguchi’s extended arm.

    Horiguchi tries to make it to his corner, but Tenzan grabs him by the arm, which he uses for a hammerlock. Tenzan goes around his opponent and gives him a bodyslam on the hammerlocked arm and tags out.

    Lomo: That’s got to hurt.

    Hewitt: Arn Anderson be proud!

    Duncan and Tenzan get in a few stomps to Horiguchi until they stand him up. At this point, the official comes in and lets Tenzan know that he needs to exit the ring. With the ref doing that, he doesn’t see Horiguchi spit a blue mist into Duncan’s eyes. Hayashi and Kojima try to alert the ref to this rules violation, but this only serves to further distract him as Horiguchi delivers a low blow. The ref does react when he sees the backslide from hell out of the corner of his eye…
    1…
    2…
    3
    Horiguchi quickly crawls to his corner to tag out.

    Hewitt: I wondered how a one armed man who’s 5-6 would survive a 7 foot tall man. I guess that’s how.

    Hayashi comes back into the ring to face Mistico. Hayashi steps to the middle of the ring and Mistico runs at him full speed. Mistico does a tilt-a-whirl armdrag that sends Hayashi to his back. Hayashi gets to his feet, but is sent back to the middle of the ring with a Japanese arm drag. When Hayashi gets to his feet, Mistico runs to him for a tilt-a-whirl, but Hayashi gets control and turns it into a backbreaker. Hayashi runs to the ropes and springboards off with a moonsault. Mistico rolls out of the way, but Hayashi lands on his feet. Mistico springs to his feet. Both men go for dropkicks, and naturally miss each other. Each man goes to his corner to tag out.

    Kojima meets Dragon in the middle of the ring with a chop. Kojima whips Dragon across into the ropes. Dragon slides between Kojima’s legs. Kojima turns around and finds himself on the receiving end of a series of strikes and low kicks. Dragon sends Kojima to the mat with a spinning heel kick. Dragon picks up Kojima’s legs and steps through, but Kojima reaches up and grabs him by the hair for a small package…
    1…
    2.
    Dragon kicks out. Both men get to their feet with Dragon’s back to the opposing corner. Kojima runs right through Dragon with a shoulder block and tags Hayashi back into the match. Hayashi comes into the ring and Dragon gives him a jawbreaker followed by an inside cradle…
    1…
    2…

    Lomo: Down to 2 on 4. Tenzan and Kojima have their work cut out for them here.

    Tenzan jumps into the ring and is met with a low kick. Dragon follows up with a punch and another kick, but Tenzan catches the arm that Dragon throws at him and sends Dragon to the mat with a headbutt. Tenzan then drops to the mat to put Dragon in an anaconda vice. Saito and Mistico come into the ring, but both are taken down by clotheslines from Kojima. With no help in sight, Dragon taps out.

    Kojima picks up Saito and Tenzan rolls over, putting both knees up. Kojima body slams Saito onto Tenzan’s knees. Tenzan rolls over to cover Saito…
    1…
    2.
    Mistico breaks up the pin. Kojima stomps on Mistico and Horiguchi runs into the ring. Horiguchi dropkicks Kojima over the top rope then begins giving Tenzan a series of chops to back him into a corner. The official intervenes to get Horiguchi out of the ring. When the ref turns around, he sees Mistico on the middle rope giving Tenzan a series of punches After a five count, the ref informs Mistico that he is disqualified.

    Tenzan takes a few steps out of the corner and walks right into an inside cradle from the legal opponent, Saito...
    1…
    2…

    Hewitt: 3 quick eliminations.

    Lomo: Only 2. Tenzan kicked out just in time.

    Tenzan swings at Saito, but Saito ducks and winds up behind Tenzan. Saito goes for a German suplex, but Tenzan blocks it. Tenzan goes behind to set up a German suplex of his own, but Saito gives him an elbow. Saito runs to the ropes, but is surprised by a Samoan drop when he rebounds. Tenzan climbs to the top rope of his corner and jumps off for a flying headbutt, only for Saito to roll out of the way. Saito rolls to his corner and tags out.

    Horiguchi comes into the ring and approaches Tenzan. Tenzan rolls out of the way of an elbow drop. Tenzan gets to his knees and jumps forward for a headbutt Horiguchi in the stomach. Tenzan turns around to try to tag out, but Horiguchi is able to grab him around the waist. Horiguchi does a belly to back suplex and covers his opponent…
    1…
    2..
    Tenzan kicks out. Horiguchi goes to his corner to tag out.

    Saito drops a leg across Tenzan’s neck and goes for a cover…
    1…
    2…
    Tenzan kicks out. Saito brings Tenzan to his feet and prepares for a suplex, but gets punched in his ribs. Tenzan whips Saito across the ring and meets him at the ropes with an elbow. Tenzan tags in Kojima and whips Saito across the ring again. Saito rebounds and is on the receiving end of a Ten-Koji Cutter (Dudley Death Drop). Kojima covers Saito…
    1…
    2…

    Horiguchi comes in as Tenzan goes out. Kojima gives him a series of chops to the ropes and whips him across the ring. After a lariat, Kojima puts Horiguchi in the cozy max hold. Horiguchi is quick to submit.

    Lomo: That’s the end of the match. The work done on Horiguchi’s arm at the beginning of the match was just finished.

    Hewitt: And that flapjack/cutter combo’ll take out anyone.

    Lomo: And let’s not forget the disqualification of Mistico.

    Hewitt: Mistico had to leave when the ref counted. That might’ve been a language problem. Does the ref speak Spanish?

    Lomo: How many people do you know who speak Japanese and Spanish?

    Hewitt: Most of the people I know are still working on English.

    Default Re: King of Wrestling Tournament- 2006

    Lomo: I don’t know how, but Jeff Jarrett put his team together and is definitely an influential captain, but I wonder who leads his opponents: two tag teams brought together by respect.

    Hewitt: Jarrett may have screwed up. CM Punk and Brent Albright have been fussin’ and feudin’ all year.

    Jeff Jarrett/CM Punk/ Brent Albright/ Tamon Honda vs. Minoru Fujita/ Ikuto Hidaka/Paul London/ Brian Kendrick

    Jarrett tells Albright to start while their opponents seem to be discussing the situation. Eventually Hidaka is the man who is chosen. Albright shakes his head and points to London, trying to goad him into the ring instead. Hidaka turns around and gets taken down by a clothesline from behind. Albright gives Hidaka a few stomps to the leg then drops an elbow onto his back. Albright stands Hidaka up then whips him into the ropes. Albright gives his opponent an inverted atomic drop. Albright runs to the ropes and comes off with a knee drop, but Hidaka rolls out of the way. Both men stand and Hidaka gives Albright a short series of kicks followed by a snap suplex. Hidaka drops an elbow, but Albright rolls out of the way. Both men stand up and take a defensive position with their backs to their opponents’ corners. Both men lock up in the middle of the ring. Jarrett runs into the ring and kicks Hidaka in the back of the leg. The ref yells at Jarrett as he leaves the ring and as Albright pulls Hidaka to his corner to tag Jarrett into the match legally.

    Jarrett comes in and drops a knee across the leg that Albright holds for him. Jarrett puts a figure 4 leglock on Hidaka. With Jarrett’s back in the corner, Hidaka is in position to get to the ropes. Hidaka holds out, but once Jarrett gets some extra leverage from Albright, Hidaka submits.

    Lomo: I’m surprised the ref allowed that submission. He could’ve disqualified Jarrett previously or allowed Hidaka to recover because of the illegal double team.

    Hewitt: Could’ve but didn’t.

    London comes in like a house of fire, stomping away on Jarrett before he’s even released the hold on Hidaka. The ref is unable to stop the feet on London, but a slap from Honda gets his attention, and even moreso does an elbow from Punk. Jarrett reaches up for any hand he can tag and finds that of Albright.

    Albright comes back into the ring and gives London a armbar, which he transitions into a short clothesline. Albright holds on to the arm and pulls London to his feet in that manner for a second short clothesline. Albright pulls London up again, but this time London ducks the clothesline and frees his hand. London does a frankensteiner. Albright recovers as London decides it’s time to get out of the ring. With Albright between him and his corner, London tries to go over his adversary, but Albright is able to stop London from tagging by holding him on his shoulders and slamming in down in a sort of modified spinebuster. Albright takes the opportunity to go to his corner, ignore Punk’s outstretched hand, and tag Honda into the match.

    Honda’s first order of business is to prevent London from tagging out, which he accomplishes by knocking bot Fujita and Kendrick off the apron. Honda then dives on top of London with a variety of amatuer holds, intended to tire out London and to keep him in place. London is unable to escape from his opponent. Honda puts London into a half nelson, half waistlock and roll him to his back for a pin…
    1…
    2.
    London rolls back to his belly. Honda puts London in a full nelson and bends him in such a manner to resemble a camel clutch. London gets on his knees and rolls to the side. He doesn’t reach his corner, but Fujita is just able to reach one of his hands for the tag.

    Honda drops the hold and meets Fujita upon his entrance with a drop toe hold. Honda floats over for a side headlock. Fujita fights his way to his feet and backs into the ropes to send honda off. Fujita tries to do a shoulder block, but Honda, who outweighs him by over 100 pounds, runs right over him. Honda grabs Fujita’s arms and turns him over into a triangle choke. Fujita is citrually helpless as he reaches for the ropes, but is in the middle of the ring. His attempts to escape by rocking back and forth also fail. The ref notices both of Honda’s shoulders on the mat…
    1…
    2…
    3
    Fujita is barely conscious as he crawls to his corner to tag in Kendrick.

    Hewitt: Just like that, we’re even.

    Lomo: Just like this, we may have a bigger fight on our hands.

    Both Punk and Albright step into the ring to take Honda’s place. They argue and push each other until Jarrett steps in and convinces Albright to leave. Punk is met in the ring by an armdrag from Kendrick. Kendrick delivers a dropkick to send Punk into the ropes. Kendrick tries to whip Punk across the ring, but Punk holds onto Kendrick’s arm and gives him a kick to the ribs. Punk goes for a roundhouse kick, but Kendrick dodges it and gets behind Punk for a belly to back suplex. Kendrick hooks a leg…
    1…
    2..
    Punk kicks out. Kendrick pulls Punk to his feet and whips Punk into the ropes. Punk jumps onto the middle rope and springboards off with a back elbow to Kendrick’s chin. Punk goes for a cover…
    1…
    2..
    Kendrick gets a shoulder up. Punk immediately starts trying to put Kendrick in the anaconda vice, but Kendrick winds up rolling all around to avoid the hold. Both get get up and Punk is just a little bit faster to the punch. Kendrick is stunned by Punk’s punch and gets whipped into the ropes. Punk goes for a back body drop, but Kendrick leapfrogs him. Kendrick rebounds with a leg lariat, but Punk catches him. The momentum sends Punk backwards near his own corner where he throws Kendrick backwards over the top rope, and onto Albright. Albright and Kendrick fall to the arena floor. Albright is the first man up and slides into the ring. He gets into it with Punk, causing Jarrett to come in to try to mediate. While this is going on, Kendrick comes into the ring and pulls Jarrett down by the tights for a school boy…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Albright tries to chase Kendrick, who crawls across the ring to tag out, but Punk grabs him by the arm and continues to yell at him. After a shove from Albright, Punk steps out of the ring and Albright looks to his opponents. Punk comes back in and gives Albright a roundhouse kick to the head from behind. Albright goes down and London runs across the ring. He does a dropsault that kicks Punk and lands on Albright…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: And just like that, it’s 3 on 1.

    Hewitt: CM Punk did done messed up. He screwed himself.

    As soon as London is up, Punk clotheslines him to the mat. As London tries to get up, Punk underhooks both arms for a backbreaker and immediately goes for a lateral press…
    1…
    2..
    London bridges up. Punk rolls off and London sits up. Punk kicks London in the spine then puts him in a rear chinlock. London quickly turns so that he is on his knees and is able to get to his feet. London elbows Punk in the gut then slips out of the hold to go behind him. London does a double chickenwing and lifts Punk up, but Punk escapes to turn it into a victory roll…
    1…
    2..
    London kicks out. Punk comes to a kneeling London with a knee, but London rolls out of the way, toward his corner, and tags out.

    Kendrick runs in and puts Punk on the mat with a heel kick. Kendrick then goes to the top of the nearest corner and dives off with a knee drop, but Punk rolls out of the way. Kendrick is able to stand and Punk quickly picks him up in a fireman’s carry. Kendrick slips off his shoulders and grabs his opponent by the head. He goes to the corner for sliced bread #2, but Punk sends him flying to the middle of the ring. When Kendrick turns over, he gets a running knee to his face and a cover…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: One down, two to go.

    Lomo: Do you really think he can outlast 2 more opponents?

    Hewitt: Haven’t we seen amazing things out of CM Punk?

    Fujita takes a different approach than his partner, slowly coming into the ring and waiting for Punk to make the first move. Punk is slow to make that move, waiting in a corner. To coax Punk to the middle of the ring, Fujita bends over and allows Punk to have a free headlock. Punk comes to the middle of the ring and kicks Fujita in the bent over head. Punk runs to the ropes and comes off with a crossbody…
    1…
    2..
    Fujita kicks out. Punk gives Fujita flurry of punches and forearms to back him into a corner. Punk puts Fujita on the top rope and climbs after him. Punk goes for a frankensteiner, but Fujita holds onto the top rope. Punk hits the mat hard and Fujita does a splash from the top rope…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: Fujita got lucky!

    Hewitt: Japan’s underacheiver sneaks in two pins. This might be his tournament.

    Default Re: King of Wrestling Tournament- 2006

    Lomo: I have to question Vince McMahon’s judgment here. He’s teamed up with his son, a cheerleader, and a Samoan savage.

    Hewitt: Well, they’re both hands on executives. Shane is a former European Champion and Vince probably ain’t completely out of the title picture.

    Mazada/ Shawn Michaels/ The Boogeyman/Sting vs. Vince McMahon/Shane McMahon/Umaga/ Mitch w/ Armando Alejandro Estrada

    Umaga is selected to start for his team against Mazada. Mazada is reluctant to get close the savage, but Umaga has no problem cornering and punching away at his opponent. Umaga whips his opponent into another neutral corner. Umaga charges into the corner after him and goes for a running headbutt, but Mazada moves out of the way. Umaga turns around having suffered no apparent ill effects. Mazada fires off a couple of chops and tries to pick up Umaga for a scoop slam, but a well-placed elbow stops the attempt and a headbutt puts Mazada on his back. Umaga climbs to the middle rope and comes off with a slingshot splash…
    1…
    2..
    Mazada gets his foot on the rope. Estrada pushes the foot off the rope and yells at Umaga. Umaga runs across the ring, but he runs into Shane, knocking him off the apron. Mazada crawls to his corner and tags out while Umaga is distracted by his partners.

    Boogey comes into the ring and gets Umaga’s attention by pulling worms out of his tights and throwing them at the Samoan. Umaga stomps his foot and charges at Boogey, tackling him, and taking both men out of the ring. The ref makes a 10 count and declares both men eliminated.

    Lomo: This doesn’t look good for McMahon and Company.

    Hewitt: What are you talking about? It’s 3 on 3.

    Mitch and Michaels step into the ring. Mitch gets some last minute instructions from Vince and is knocked down with a superkick. Michaels grabs Mitch, who is hung up in the ropes, and pulls him to the center of the ring. Vince and Shane both try to get in the ring, but Sting runs in to stop it. Vince gets away and runs up the aisle, but Sting gets a hold of Shane. Shawn sets up Mitch while Sting brings Shane to the middle of the ring. Michaels hits sweet chin music on Mitch as Sting does a scorpion death drop on Shane. Sting does the scorpion deathlock while Michaels covers Mitch…
    1, Shane begins to tap out...
    2, Shane continues to tap
    3, The ref acknowledges Shane’s tap.

    The ref does the obligatory 10 count for Vince, who is already backstage and not getting near the ring.

    Hewitt: The ref shouldn’t have allowed Shane’s submission.

    Lomo: Even an actual zebra could’ve seen where this was going.

    Lomo: Well, you’ve heard of the dogs of war, these are the cats of war.

    Hewitt: Terrible joke. I wonder how long Tiger Mask and Black Tiger, two guys who pretty much exist to fight each other, can work together. The other team is a Latin invasion of sorts.

    Tiger Mask IV/ Black Tiger IV/ Zumbibo/ Tatsuhito Takaiwa vs. Universo 2000/ Homicide/ Hernandez/ Ultimo Guerrero

    Universo and Black Tiger start the match for their respective teams. Black Tiger offers a handshake. Universo takes it and gets kicked in the stomach. Black Tiger chops his opponent then goes for an Irish whip, but Universo reverses it. Black Tiger ducks a clothesline and rebounds to duck a back elbow. Black Tiger takes the upper hand with a flying headscissors. Universo tries to take refuge in a nearby neutral corner, but Black Tiger gives no quarter and moves in after him. Black Tiger jumps to the middle rope, possibly for a monkey flip, but Universo takes him to the middle of the ring for a manhattan drop. Universo puts his opponent in a headlock and runs to his own corner for a bulldog and to tag out.

    Universo holds Black Tiger up while Hernandez runs to the ropes and nearly decapitates the enemy with a vicious clothesline. Hernandez pushes Black Tiger’s shoulders against the mat with his hands…
    1…
    2..
    Black Tiger uses his legs to kick out. Hernandez looks at the ref, but decides to go back to his opponent. Hernandez grabs Black Tiger by the throat and brings him to his feet. Hernandez shoves Black Tiger into the corner and the ref steps between them to admonish Hernandez for the choke, which allows Homicide to choke Black Tiger behind the ref’s back. Hernandez comes back to the corner and prepares for a powerbomb. Hernandez picks him up and spins around for 2 and a half rotations and throws Black Tiger to the mat. He dives on top of Black Tiger…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: One well placed clothesline led to that. Truly we are witnessing human chess.

    Hewitt: Sometimes you hit a move so well, your opponent can’t do anything. That was perfect.

    Takaiwa comes into the ring and the two legal men begin exchanging blows with Hernandez quickly coming out on top. He beats Takaiwa into a set of ropes and turns him around to choke him against the top rope. The referee breaks this up. Takaiwa turns around, still leaning on the ropes. He reaches for a tag, but Hernandez runs toward him and clotheslines him, sending both men over the top rope. As the legal men recover, Homicide steps into the ring and, aiming for Takaiwa, but hitting both men, does a tope con hiro. Zumbido waits for the right time and does a springboard moonsault onto the pile. Guerrero runs along the apron to a neutral corner and climbs to the top rope. He dives off with a crossbody knocking the mass on the floor down. Tiger Mask climbs his team’s post, but Universo comes in and runs toward the same post. Tiger Mask takes down Universo with a flying clothesline. Tiger Mask runs to the ropes and does a feint attack towards the 5 men out of the ring. 4 of the 5 duck to avoid him. Hernandez, the exception, steps to the side. Guerrero runs toward Tiger Mask again and gets shoulder tossed out of the ring, onto the 4 guys who ducked previously. Tiger Mask jumps onto the top rope and springboards to dive onto Hernandez, but Hernandez catches him in the air and runs his back against the post. Hernandez grabs Takaiwa from the pile and sends him into the ring. Hernandez follows Takaiwa in and does a border toss to him followed by a cover…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: This is turning ugly. The only man standing is on the team with the 4-2 advantage.

    Guerrero is the first man up and he helps Zumbido into the ring. Hernandez drags Zumbido to the middle of the ring and gets rolled up in a surprise inside cradle…
    1…
    2..
    Hernandez kicks out. Hernandez is the faster of the two men to his feet and he drops an elbow, but Zumbido rolls out of the way. Both men get to their feet and it is Zumbido who gets the first strike with a dropkick. Zumbido goes for an Irish whip, but Hernandez reverses it and Zumbido goes for the run. Hernandez picks up Zumbido for a sidewalk slam, but Zumbido is able to rotate through and land on his feet behind Hernandez. After a belly to back suplex, both men look to their corners. Hernandez sees Universo and Guerrero while his opponent sees Tiger Mask. Both men crawl for the tag and Hernandez makes contact with Guerrero. Zumbido reaches for the outstretched arm of Tiger Mask, but Homicide pulls the masked man off the apron and pushes him into the barricade.

    As Guerrero steps into the ring, Zumbido crawls to the corner and uses them to climb to his feet. Guerrero does a splash with Zumbido facing the ropes. Guerrero does a side slam and covers his opponent…
    1…
    2…
    Zumbido gets a foot on the ropes. Guerrero rolls Zumbido further from the ropes and does a Mexican surfboard. Zumbido refuses to give up and eventually Tiger Mask reaches into the ring and grabs Guerrero. Guerrero breaks the hold as he is being dragged out of the ring. Tiger Mask goes off on Guerrero with a series of strikes and kicks before throwing him into the barricade. The ref warns Tiger Mask from inside the ring and eventually steps out to try to stop the onslaught. Tiger Mask pushes the ref out of the way and the ref points to the ring announcer.

    Hewitt: I think he’s had enough.

    Lomo: Strange, because Ultimo Guerrero is pretty much the only one that didn’t do anything to Tiger Mask tonight.

    While the officials come to the ring to break up the fight and escort Tiger Mask backstage, Hernandez comes into the ring and grabs Zumbido. Homicide also comes into the ring and pulls a chain out of his boot. Homicide nails Zumbido between the eyes watches him fall to the mat. Universo comes into the ring and grabs the chain from Homicide. The two men yell at each other until the ref comes in and sees Zumbido on the mat and Universo with the chain. He calls for the disqualification as Guerrero slides into the ring and covers Zumbido…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: That’s one way to win a match.

    Lomo: Note that Universo 2000 was disqualified so he is not in the 2nd round, but the fall is credited to Zumbido. That makes him more likely to be drawn for the 2nd chance battle royal.

    Hewitt: It’s not over yet.

    Universo uses the chain on both Homicide and Hernandez until Guerrero steps in and convinces him to stop. Universo is escorted backstage while LAX nurses their injuries and possibly a grudge.

    CIMA/ Naruki Doi/ Masato Yoshino/ Yoshinobu Kanemaru vs. Abyss/ Shuji Kondo/ Kentaro Shiga/ Rey Bucanero

    CIMA and Abyss start off the match for their teams. CIMA offers a test of strength and Abyss obliges. Before they make contact with their hands, CIMA kicks Abyss in the knee then brings the big guy down with a drop toe hold. CIMA rolls to his opponent’s head and puts him in a headlock. Abyss is quickly to his feet. He picks up CIMA and tosses him off his head to his own corner. CIMA tags out.

    Yoshino comes into the ring and gets pushed back into his own corner and gets elbowed in the head before Doi tags himself in.

    Doi comes in and puts Abyss in an armbar. As Abyss makes a fist Doi drops the hold and backs away, but not before slapping Abyss across the face. Doi circles around Abyss a few times and gives him a few more slaps across the face. Finally The Monster can stand no more and charges at his opponent, only for Doi to dodge him and allow him to hit the corner. Doi grabs Abyss’s arm and uses the second rope to jump over the top and bring the arm down across the top rope. Abyss grabs his arm and goes to his corner to tag out.

    Lomo: I don’t know if he’s more angry or embarrassed by what Naruki Doi has been able to do to him.

    Hewitt: Abyss is a monster. I think angry is the only emotion he knows. Fun fact: both of the men now in the ring were trained by Ultimo Dragon.

    Lomo: There’s no such thing as a fun fact.

    Kondo enters the ring and gets taken down with an armdrag. Kondo gets up and Doi takes him down with a cross body block…
    1…
    2..
    Kondo kicks out. Doi is the first man up and his opponent appears disoriented. Doi puts Kondo into a headlock. Kondo backs up to the ropes and reaches for a tag, successfully, then propels Doi across the ring. Kondo gets to the center of the ring and drops to his belly while Abyss steps into the ring. Doi jumps over Kondo, but can not avoid Abyss’s black hole slam. Abyss covers Doi…
    1…
    2…
    Doi gets a foot on the ropes. Abyss chokes Doi as the official counts. Rather than call for disqualification, the official tries to pull Abyss off. Abyss does not relent until his own teammates enter the ring and pull him off. While Abyss and, to a lesser extent, the ref are distracted by the three illegal men in the ring, Doi crawls to his own corner to tag out and makes sure the official is watching before doing so.

    CIMA comes into the ring about the same time the ruckus across the ring is broken up. Abyss remains in the ring and CIMA tries to lock up with him, but Abyss just shoves him to the side and goes for Doi. Doi’s teammates, including CIMA, help Abyss over the top rope and out of the ring. The ref counts Abyss out as he continues to wail away on Doi and eventually more officials have to come out from the back to escort The Monster backstage.

    Hewitt: Abyss has always had that problem with controlling his emotions.

    Lomo: Doi outsmarted Abyss, but it might not have been worth it.

    While Abyss was getting his revenge on Doi, CIMA was taking a three man beating from the remainder of his opponents. Bucanero attempts to pick up CIMA by the head, but is caught by surprise by a small package…
    1…
    2…
    3

    CIMA tries to crawl to his corner to tag out, but Kondo runs into the ring and grabs him in a waistlock and pulls him to his feet. CIMA and Yoshino barely miss tagging before Kondo does a German suplex. Kondo turns CIMA over and puts him in the gorilla clutch. CIMA slowly makes his way to the ropes, but eventually succumbs to the hold and taps out.

    Lomo: They’re dropping like flies.

    Hewitt: It’s as if a bad and lazy writer wants to get rid of a bunch of wrestlers.

    Lomo (quietly): I’ll get you.

    Yoshino runs into the ring and gets dropkicked by Kondo. Both men stand and Kondo puts Yoshino down with a clothesline. Kondo tries to pull Yoshino to his feet, but Yoshino stuns him with a jawbreaker. Yoshino throws a clothesline at his opponent, but Kondo ducks and hooks Yoshino’s arms for a backslide…
    1…
    2..
    Yoshino kicks out. Both men get to their feet and Yoshino throws a clothesline again. Again Kondo ducks it and hooks his opponent’s arms for a backslide, but this time Yoshino puts up more of a fight to keep from being taken over. Yoshino unhooks his arms and grabs Kondo by the head for a neckbreaker. Yoshino drags Kondo to his corner, tags Kanemaru, and holds Kondo down. Kanemaru climbs to the top rope for a moonsault and hits is perfectly…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Shiga pulls Kanemaru off of his partner just a second too late. Shiga grabs Kanemaru by the ankle, but Kanemaru is able to tag Yoshino before any damage can be done.

    Yoshino steps into the ring and is all over Shiga, stomping and kicking him, before bringing to his feet and punching him back to the ropes. He whips Shiga against the ropes and Shiga winds up falling out of the ring as Doi is finally trying to get back onto the apron and is pulling down the middle rope. Doi rolls under the ring and holds on to Shiga’s leg as the official makes the full 10 count.

    Lomo: That’s the cheapest elimination yet.

    Hewitt: They all count for just the same.

    Note from the author: I apologize for taking 3 weeks to write this. I use the system of choosing participants that I do because I want to learn more about some wrestlers. Between a new job and moving to a different, albeit bordering, city, and researching 6 of these 8 wrestlers, this particular match took longer than usual.

    Default Re: King of Wrestling Tournament- 2006

    Lomo: This is going to be a classic battle of speed and heart against size and strength.

    Hewitt: What if the big guys also have heart?

    Lomo: Then God help us all. I can’t figure out for the life of me how Mephisto got on this team unless it was random.

    Hewitt: Well, Kane’s a demon; maybe they know each other.

    Kenta Kobashi/ Gedo/ Jado/ KENTA vs. Big Show/ Kane/ Akebono/ Mephisto

    Gedo is the first man in the ring and does not appear at all intimidated by his opponent, Show, as evidenced by him running up to him and dropkick him in the chest. Show barely takes a step backwards and shakes it off. Gedo kicks Show in the leg and Show responds by kicking him in the stomach. Show whips Gedo into a neutral corner and follows him in with a splash. Gedo falls to the mat and Show goes to his corner to tag in Akebono.

    Akebono steps into the ring and goes to the corner where Gedo lies. He climbs to the second rope and Gedo rolls out of the ring. Akebono does a banzai drop and lands on the canvas. Gedo climbs onto the apron then onto the top rope. He does a double foot stomp onto Akebono and covers him…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: Akebono never expected to land on the mat. I think he was a shocked then a stomp knocked the wind out of him. Now his team is outnumbered.

    Lomo: Maybe, but his opponents are outweighed.

    Mephisto and Kane step into the ring, but Mephisto is the faster of the two and grabs Gedo by the ankle to interrupt his attempt to tag out. Mephisto pulls Gedo back a step then straddles him. He stomps on the small of Gedo’s back. Gedo starts to get up and Mephisto puts Gedo in his own clutch…
    1…
    2..
    Gedo escapes. Gedo is close to his corner and jumps for the tag, but Mephisto is between Gedo and his partners. Mephisto hooks Gedo’s arms and rolls over toward the center of the ring before pulling Gedo to his feet. Gedo fires off two right hands, but one from Mephisto packs more punch and allows Mephisto to bring Gedo to his corner head first and tag Kane.


    Kane clamps his hand around Gedo’s neck and pulls him out of the corner. Gedo is helpless to do anything but go for the ride. After a chokeslam, Kane covers Gedo while keeping his eyes on his other three opponents…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: That evens it up. 3 to 3.

    Kobashi comes into the ring and locks up with Kane in the middle of the ring. Kobashi does a fireman’s carry to bring Kane over. Kane sits up and is kicked in the spine. Kane shows the effects of the blow, but continues to rise despite forearms and chops from Kobashi. Kobashi chops Kane into a neutral corner, and opens up with a rapid succession of chops that gets stopped when Kane knees him in the stomach. Kane throws Kobashi into the same corner he was just in and continues his attack of knees to the stomach. Kane takes Kobashi to his corner, where he tags in Show.

    Kane whips Kobashi across the ring and Kobashi receives a boot to his face from both Kane and Show. Show raises his left foot and stomps on Kobashi’s chest. He keeps the foot there and takes a step forward. He takes the time to let his opponents on the apron know that it won’t be long, but Kobashi rises to his feet while that’s going on. Show turns around to get chopped a couple of times before delivering a head butt that sends Kobashi staggering backwards to the ropes. Show gives him a downward chop and tags in Mephisto.

    Show holds Kobashi’s arms behind his back as Mephisto climbs to the top rope. Mephisto comes off with a dropkick, but Kobashi moves out of the way and Mephisto hits the biggest target in the ring. Kobashi chips Mephisto across the ring into the favorable corner and tags in KENTA.

    Kobashi continues to chop away until KENTA is ready to make his move, which consists of turning Mephisto around and hooking both arms for a tiger suplex, which is executed perfectly…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: The hits you don’t see coming hurt the most.

    Hewitt: Mephisto didn’t see anything since he hit The Big Show.

    Kane was just a moment too slow to break up the pin, but has plenty of time to stomp on KENTA and pull him to his feet. Kane then lifts his opponent overhead. Kobashi steps into the ring and Kane throws KENTA at him. As Kobashi rolls out of the ring, Kane picks up KENTA and carries him across the ring for a side slam in a friendly corner. He tags in Show, then runs across the ring to give Jado a boot to the face that knocks him off the apron and onto Kobashi.

    Show tries to pull KENTA to his feet, but KENTA gives him a heel kick from the mat. KENTA springs to his feet, but a straight punch from Show stops him from getting any momentum. Show whips KENTA into a neutral corner and follows him in with a clothesline. KENTA drops to one knee, but not for long as Show stands him up and delivers a big chop to his chest. KENTA is virtually immobile, but not completely as he does wrap his leg around the middle rope. Show grabs him by the throat and ignores the ref’s count. He fails to pull KENTA away from the ropes the first time, but on the second succeeds, but pulls too hard and his momentum sends him to the mat with his opponent on top of him…
    1…
    Show pushes KENTA off and is clearly not happy about what just happened. KENTA is much closer to Kane’s reach than to that of his partners, but that doesn’t stop him from trying to crawl across Show to his corner. Show grabs a hold of his opponent’s leg and holds him in place while he gets to his feet. Show stomps on KENTA’s ankle then pulls him to his feet. KENTA wildly kicks his leg behind him and hits his mark, putting his heel into Show’s stomach. KENTA turns around and gets in a couple of forearm shots before Show knees him in the stomach. Show picks up KENTA for a power bomb, but KENTA rolls forward and winds up behind him, landing on his feet, which causes him to crumble under the stomped leg. Laying down, KENTA tries to pull Show over in a sunset flip, but Show is too heavy. Show bends over and puts both hands around KENTA’s throat and pulls him to his feet. Show switches to one hand and picks KENTA up off the ground, but a chop to his neck forces Show to drop his opponent- onto his injured ankle. KENTA is now able to roll to his corner and tag out.

    Jado comes into the ring and gives Show a clothesline, but appears to have no effect. A second clothesline gives the same result. Jado runs to the ropes, but gets speared by Show. Show picks up Jado and gets eye gouged. Jado goes behind Jado and jumps on his back for a sleeper hold. Show stumbles around the ring and is eventually able to find his corner, where Kane tags him in.

    Lomo: It doesn’t matter how big you are, a sleeper is just as effective on anyone. That was almost it for The Big Show.

    Kane grabs Jado by the head and pulls him off his partner. Kane throws Jado into the corner head first then beats his head against the top turnbuckle. Kane takes Jado halfway between two corners and whips him across the ring. Kane meets him in the middle of the ring with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker and a cover…
    1…
    2..
    Jado kicks out. Kane tries to bring Jado to his feet, but Jado stops him with a small package…
    1…
    2…
    Kane kicks out. Both men get up and Kane is shocked by a forearm from Jado. A handful of forearms, chops, and kicks puts Kane in a neutral corner. Kane continues to cover up as the onslaught continues. Show runs across the apron and stuns Jado with a punch to the temple. Kane climbs to the top rope and comes off with a clothesline, but Jado evades the human projectile. Kane gets to his feet while Jado runs to the ropes. He comes off with a crossbody block, but Kane catches him. Rotates him 90 degress and drops him with a tombstone…
    1…
    2…
    3.

    Hewitt: That’s just how quick the tables can change.

    Lomo: I think you mean tables can turn.

    Hewitt: Who the heck turns a table?

    Kobashi enters the ring and Show comes in from the other side. This draws KENTA to limp in as well. All four men stare at each other and the ref doesn’t know who to ask to leave first. Kane throws a punch at Kobashi, but Kobashi blocks it and gives one of his own. Show grabs KENTA by the head and pushes him backwards. KENTA goes over the top rope, but hangs on as the ref gets Show out of the ring and Kobashi continues to hit Kane. KENTA pulls himself onto the apron and goes to the corner where he ascends the ropes. Kobashi backs up to the corner and throws his partner at Kane with a rocket launcher. KENTA rolls out of the ring and Kobashi covers Kane…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Show charges into the ring and Kobashi ducks a clothesline. Show bounces off the ropes and walks right into a rolling chop. Kobashi tries to suplex Show, but the giant is too heavy and he just pushes Kobashi away. Kobashi goes back against the ropes and Show runs right through him with a shoulder block. Show drops an elbow, but Kobashi rolls out of the way. Kobashi is the first man to his feet and he puts himself in position behind Show. Kobashi dropkicks Show in the back. Show the ropes chest first and Kobashi catches him as he bounces off with a belly to back suplex, which he holds onto for the pin…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: And the biggest man in the tournament is gone.

    Lomo: Don’t forget that he may be in the battle royal. And Kane has three times the chance to get in there having recorded both eliminations for his team.

    Lomo: 3 men are in the ring, but where is Paul Burchill?

    Hewitt: Pirates don’t usually work for kings.

    Lomo: Well, it’s 4 on 3 for now. King Booker, and 2 members of his court are in the ring and all 4 opponents are on their way.

    Hewitt: This answers your question- and he’s attacking like a pirate!

    Chris Benoit/ Bryan Danielson/ Matt Cappotelli/ Charles Evans vs. King Booker/ Finlay/ Nigel McGuiness/ Paul Burchill w/ Queen Sharmell

    Burchill attacks Evans, who was in the back of the line going to the ring, with a chair. This gains the attention of Danielson, Cappotelli, and the official, but not Benoit who had already stepped into the ring. The ref does his best to separate the 4 wrestlers outside the ring and does not notice the three man beat down on Benoit, which includes Finlay using his shillelagh. Once the official has calmed down the situation outside of the ring, he orders Burchill away from ringside and gets Evans, Danielson, and Cappotelli on the apron. He comes back into the ring in time to see Booker deliver a scissor kick to Benoit and cover him…
    1…
    2…
    3.

    Lomo: Two men gone quickly.

    Hewitt: Well, I’d trade a guy who thinks he’s a pirate for someone as decorated as Benoit.

    Danielson comes into the ring and runs right into a knee from Booker. Booker delivers a second and a third knee to Danielson’s stomach and gives him a bodyslam. Booker backs up to the ropes and comes forward with a knee drop, but Danielson rolls out of the way. Danielson grabs Booker by the leg and grapevines it. Booker crawls to his corner and tags in McGuinness.

    McGuinness challenges Danielson to a test of strength. Danielson accepts and McGuinness quickly pushes Danielson to his knees. McGuinness goes behind his opponent and holds on to the hands to create a sort of straightjacket hold with his knee to Danielson’s back. Danielson rolls toward his corner, and winds up on his side, looking to his corner, but with the hold still intact. McGuiness holds on to the straight jacket until he is tired of it then switches to a waistlock and rolls back away from the opposing corner. He pulls Danielson to his feet, but Danielson gives him an elbow to the head and goes behind him for a German suplex. He holds on to the waistlock and brings McGuinness back to a standing position. He goes for a full nelson and hits a dragon suplex with a bridge…
    1…
    2..
    McGuinness kicks out. Danielson stomps on McGuiness’s chest and leaves him a nuetral corner as he goes to his own corner to tag out.

    Cappotelli runs along the apron and climbs to the top of the corner. Finlay runs along the apron and gets kicked in the head by Cappotelli, but the distraction is long enough for McGuinness to recover, jump onto the middle rope and uppercut Cappotelli. McGuinness grabs Cappotelli by the head and hits tower of London then turns him over for a cover…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: And then there were two.

    Lomo: Danielson still looks winded and Evans still hasn’t recovered from that chair attack. They can’t figure out who should go in and Nigel McGuinness just tagged in King Booker.

    Danielson reluctantly enters the ring. Booker swings a right hand, but Danielson ducks it and kicks Booker in the leg. Booker swings again and gets the same result. After a third attempt, Booker catches the leg that was going to be used to kick him. Booker pulls the leg out from under Danielson and drags him to the corner where he tags in Finlay.

    Finlay does a seated senton onto the leg that Booker holds outstretched. Finlay grabs the leg, but Danielson kicks him in the stomach. Danielson gets to his feet, but a clothesline puts him back on the mat. Finlay grabs the targeted leg and puts Danielson in a half crab. Evans comes into the ring and Finlay drops the hold to chase him out of the ring. The ref steps in to admonish Evans and a three man beat down takes place behind his back, focusing on Danielson’s leg. The ref turns around to see Danielson in the middle of the ring and Finlay applying the Celtic knot. Danielson has no choice but to submit.

    Evans, seeing the odds against him, steps off the apron and goes backstage, getting counted out.

    Lomo: They won’t be able to get through the next round using those tactics.

    Hewitt: They don’t seem too concerned about that.

    Akira Taue/Jimmy Rave/ Johnny Nitro/ Joey Mercury w/Melina vs. The Undertaker/ Atsushi Aoki/ Averno/ Nosawa Rongai

    Nitro starts off in the ring against Averno. Averno throws a series of right hands at Nitro and backs him up to the ropes where he simply scoops Nitro up and tosses him out of the ring. Nitro holds on to the top rope and stays on the apron. Averno throws another right hand, but Nitro blocks it and gives him a shoulder to the stomach and a sunset flip…
    1…
    2..
    Averno kicks out. Nitro is the first man to his feet, but Averno is not far behind. Melina, from the corner, screams and gets Averno’s attention and Nitro lands a superkick to send Averno to his back. Nitro hooks a leg…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: Averno did not see that coming and Nitro hit it perfectly.

    Lomo: I’ve never seen a woman’s scream do so much.

    Hewitt: You’ve never met my wife.

    Aoki comes into the ring and gives Nitro a forearm to the head. Nitro throws a right hand, but Aoki blocks it and gives off a series of headbutts until Nitro gouges his eyes. Nitro goes to his corner and tags out.

    Rave runs into the ring, but Aoki powerslams him. Aoki runs to his corner and tags in ‘Taker before ascending the ropes. As Rave stands up, Aoki jumps off with an ax handle and ‘Taker drops an elbow on Rave before a lateral press…
    1…
    2..
    Rave kicks out. ‘Taker pulls Rave to his feet and shoves him into the near corner. He tags in Rongai. ‘Taker gets to choking Rave with his boot while Rongai runs across the ring. When ‘Taker releases the choke, Rongai dropkicks Rave in the corner. Rongai pulls Rave out of the corner and appears to be going for a scoop slam, but Rave hooks a leg with his leg and turns it into a small package…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: I don’t believe it!

    Lomo: Quick tags aren’t saving this team.
    Immediately after the pin breaks up Rave rolls out of the ring. Aoki drops off the apron and clobbers Rave from behind as he tries to get to his corner. Aoki takes Rave by the head and tries to beat it against the guardrail, but Rave is able to stop him and gouge his eyes. Rave whips Aoki into another barricade and rolls into the ring where he can tag out as Aoki gets counted out.

    Hewitt: I think Aoki was confused. He may have forgotten that this tournament is using a ten count, not the twenty he’s used to.

    Lomo: 4 against 1. This will not end well.

    Hewitt: The one is The Undertaker. If anyone can come back it’s him.

    Mercury comes into the ring and ‘Taker lands a kick to his stomach then a forearm to his back. ‘Taker whips Mercury across the ring and Mercury ducks a clothesline. Mercury jumps for a crossbody, but ‘Taker catches him in the air. ‘Taker takes Mercury to a corner and drops him on the top turnbuckle. He runs to the ropes and comes off with a boot to Mercury’s face. Mercury tries to get up, and ‘Taker gives him a hand doing so. The raises him even higher by scooping him up, turning 180 degrees and dropping him a tombstone.
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: And then there were 3.

    Taue comes into the ring and hits ‘Taker with a running forearm. ‘Taker doesn’t even take a step backward. Taue hammers ‘Taker with a few standing forearms then does a spinning clothesline, but ‘Taker remains on his feet up, fazed, but not hurt. Taue runs to the ropes and comes off with a running big boot, but ‘Taker had the same idea and both men connect and fall to the mat. ‘Taker is the first man up and he runs to the ropes, but Rave low bridges him. The ref admonishes Rave while Taue and ‘Taker get to their feet. Taue runs to the ropes and comes off with a suicide dive. Taue helps ‘Taker to his feet and holds him up as Nitro does a moonsault off the second rope. Taue and Nitro bring ‘Taker back to his feet then put him into the ring. Taue follows him and tags in Nitro.

    Nitro climbs to the top rope and hits starship pain on ‘Taker…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: I’d say they lucked their way into that. Johnny Nitro hit a perfect superkick on a guy who didn’t see it coming and Jimmy Rave got two unexpected pins, which made it 4 on 1.

    Lomo: Luck is what you call it when hard work meets opportunity.

    Christian Cage/ Senshi/ Batista/ Koji Kanemoto vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi/ Shelton Benjamin/Mr. Kennedy/Takashi Sugiura

    Lomo: A few of this match’s competitors are considered favorites to take the whole tournament.

    Hewitt: Don’t forget that Mr. Kennedy and Batista are on opposite teams. Batista left Kennedy a bloody mess at least once this year; it’s safe to say they aren’t best friends.

    Cage and Seguira start off in the ring. Cage shakes his hands and points to Tanahashi. Seguira turns around and steps toward the corner. Cage grabs his arms and turns him over for the killswitch. Cage drags Sugiura across the ring and tags in Batista.

    Batista steps into the ring and prepares for the Batista bomb as Cage stays in the ring with both eyes on his non-legal opponent. Batista raises and drops Sugiura…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: Christian Cage tricked Sugiura into that.

    Hewitt: You fell for it too. You thought he legitimately wanted Tanahashi.

    Tanahashi comes into the ring and wants to tieup with Batista, but the idea seems strange and confusing to the big fellow. Batista throws a punch and Tanahashi ducks it then dropkicks Batista in the knee. Tanahashi quickly goes behind Batista, still on his knees, and puts him in a dragon sleeper. Batista swings at Tanahashi, but can’t get his fist anywhere near his opponent’s head. Tanahashi pulls Batista to a sitting position and Batista still can’t find his opponent’s head to punch his way out. Senshi, on the other hand, is able to get Batista out by kicking Tanahashi in the back. Tanahashi chases Shenshi out of the ring and Cage grabs his head to choke him on the top rope until Batista gives Tanahashi a knee to the ribs. Batista tags in Senshi and points to the neutral corner.

    Batista whips Tanahashi across the ring and appears to be going for a spinebuster, but Tanahashi gives him a high knee that sends Batista backwards into the ropes, which causes Senshi to lose his balance on the top rope. Tanahashi runs to the corner and armdrags Senshi from the top rope. Tanahashi waits for Senshi to get up then brings him back down with a running slingblade before running to his corner to tag Kennedy.

    Kennedy climbs to the top rope as Tanahashi drags Senshi into position. Kennedy jumps off for the ken-ton bomb and lands on Senshi as Tanahashi gets out of the way. Kennedy covers Senshi…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: The quick tag top rope move worked for one team.

    Lomo: Is that really a thing to the point that it needs a name?

    Hewitt: We’ve seen it multiple times in this tournament- and here’s an old rivalry

    Before Kennedy can get off of Senshi, Batista is on top of him delivering punches to the back of his head. Kennedy taps out and Batista continues to pummel him. The ref tries to get Batista off, but Batista shoves him away. This shove lasts just long enough for Kennedy to get away from Batista and escape the ring. Batista follows Kennedy out of the ring and the chase ensues. Kennedy rolls into the ring and Batista follows. As Kennedy goes out the other side the official tries to stop Batista, but is again pushed to the side. The official calls for the bell as Kennedy runs up the aisle and Batista gives up.

    Ring announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Kennedy has been eliminated by submission and Batista has been eliminated by disqualification.

    Hewitt: Can you submit if you’re not in a hold?

    Lomo: I guess you can quit any time you want.

    Kanemoto steps into the ring and Benjamin steps in to meet him. The two competitors lock up and Kanemoto gets the upper hand with a knee to the stomach Kanemoto scoop slams Benjamin. Kanemoto drops a leg across Benjamin then covers him…
    1…
    2.
    Benjamin kicks out. Kanemoto brings Benjamin to his feet. Benjamin pushes him away then fires off a superkick, but Kanemoto catches the foot and spins his opponent around. Benjamin does a dragon whip, but Kanemoto ducks. He puts Benjamin in an ankle lock. Benjamin crawls to his corner and tags out.

    Tanahashi runs into the ring and gives Kanemoto a running forearm. He then runs to Cage in the corner and gives him the same. Kanemoto gets up and swings a clothesline at Tanahashi, but the once in a century talent ducks the attack and does an enzuigiri. Kanemoto goes down, but Tanahashi goes up on the nearest turnbuckle and comes off with a frog splash…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Cage rolls into the ring and runs to Tanahashi, who rolls him up in an inside cradle…
    1…
    2…
    Cage kicks out. Tanahashi gets the first punch when they get up and whips Cage into the ropes. Tanahashi does a back body drop to send Cage out of the ring, but Cage hangs onto the top rope and gets his balance on the apron. He blocks an attack from Tanahashi and punches him in the head. He doesn’t even notice Benjamin coming from the side. Benjamin gives Cage a running elbow and then does a T-Bone suplex off the apron and onto the arena floor. Benjamin rolls Cage into the ring and Tanahashi is ready for the pin…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: I didn’t know Shelton Benjamin had that in him.

    Lomo: Finally something you don’t know.

    Kurt Angle/ Bobby Lashley/ Octagon/ Christopher Daniels vs. Mitsuharu Misawa/ Jun Akiyama/ Katsuhiko Nakajima/ El Zorro

    Angle and Misawa start off in the ring. Quickly after locking up, Angle goes behind Misawa and takes him to the mat. Misawa attempts to sit out on his opponent, , but Angle holds onto the waistlock and rolls over for a pin…

    Misawa kicks out and both men get to their feet. Misawa surprises Angle with a clothesline. Angle gets to his feet and is taken down by another clothesline. Misawa tags in Zorro.

    Lomo: Angle is capable of doing anything in the ring.

    Hewitt: And now he’s getting out of the ring.

    Akiyama meets Octagon in the middle and the two men begin exchanging blows with Akiyama quickly getting the advantage. He whips Octagon into the ropes and meets him with a knee to the face followed by a cover…

    Octagon kicks out. Akiyama pulls Octagon to his feet and reaches back to tag in Nakajima.

    Akiyama holds Octagon in place as Nakajima measures him for a jumping kick to the head. Nakajima jumps, but Octagon pulls Akiyama into the line of fire. Akiyama falls backwards and gets hung up in the ropes. Octagon grabs Nakajima by the head and tosses him between the ropes and onto the floor. Nakajima recovers quickly, but Octagon vaults over the top rope for a body press. After freeing his partner from the ropes, Misawa dives off the apron and hits Octagon with a shoulder block. Daniels runs along the apron and climbs to the top rope. Akiyama runs along the apron and pushes Daniels off the rope. Lashley runs across the apron and knocks Akiyama off the apron, on top of Misawa. Angle steps into the ring and the official stands between him and the action as he calls for the bell. After a conference, the ring announcer makes the following announcement:

    “Attention, attention: the referee has counted out Octagon and Katsuhiko Nakajima. As the only man from his team on the apron, Jun Akiyama became the legal man. Bobby Lashley, Christopher Daniels, and Mitsuharu Misawa all were disqualified for fighting while not legal men. Thus, the only two men still in the match are Kurt Angle and Jun Akiyama.”

    Lomo: That’s not as bad as what happened previously when Chessman advanced because so many guys were dq’ed

    Hewitt: Is this the same ref from that match? I think he’s too into it.

    Lomo: He was the same ref and does seem to have a strict interpretation of that rule.

    As Akiyama gets onto the apron and into the ring, Angle drops to all fours and motions for Akiyama to perform an amateur clinch. Akiyama instead does an Oklahoma roll…

    Angle kicks out. Both men get to their feet and Akiyama gives Angle a forearm followed by a fisherman’s suplex…

    Angle kicks out. Akiyama is the first man to his feet and sends Angle down with a clothesline. Akiyama drops an elbow, but Angle rolls out of the way. Both men get to their feet with Angle behind Akiyama. Akiyama turns around and walks right into an Olympic slam. Angle hooks a leg…

    Hewitt: That was fast.

    Lomo: That Olympic slam will knock the wind out of you and then he only needs 3 seconds.

    Default Re: King of Wrestling Tournament- 2006

    Lomo: I’m not wildly familiar with the Japanese wrestlers, but the big question on my mind is “who is Tommy Williams?”

    Hewitt: He held the super lightweight championship in CMLL. He lost it in January, which qualifies him for the tournament.

    Edge/ Randy Orton/ Tommy Williams/ Delirious vs. Takeshi Morishima/ Muhammed Yone/ Taiyo Kea/ Kensuke Sasaki

    Morishima starts off in the ring, but his opponents seem to be arguing over whether Edge or Delirious should start. Orton finishes this by grabbing Delirious and more or less dragging him out of the ring. Edge gives a last statement to his teammate and turns to the center of the ring. Morishima takes advantage with an armdrag. Moerishima puts Edge in a cross armbreaker until he sees his opponents are about to come into the ring and breaks the hold. Morishima waits for Edge to get up then sends him back to the mat with a running shoulder block. He tags out to Kea.

    Morishima helps Edge to his feet then wrings his arm while Kea climbs to the top rope. Kea comes off with an elbow onto Edge’s arm. Kea wrings the arm and Edge reaches for a handful of hair, but finds none. Edge uses a closed fist punch to try to break the hold, but Kea holds on to the arm and kicks Edge in the gut before wringing the arm again and jumping over the top rope and dropping the arm across the top rope. He rolls back into the ring and goes back to the armbar. Edge pushes Kea against the ropes where the ref calls for the break. When the ref steps between the two men, Edge reaches over the ref’s head and gouges Kea’s eyes. Edge rakes Kea’s eyes across the top rope as he goes to his corner and tags out.

    Lomo: Edge is getting out of the ring, but what kind of long term effects did all of that work on his arm have?

    Hewitt: He’s got 3 partners; he can stay out for a while.

    Williams steps into the ring and helps Edge deliver a series of kicks to Kea’s back while he is facing the corner. As Edge steps out of the ring, Williams chokes Kea on the top rope. The ref intervenes, but keeps his eyes on the corner to keep Williams’s partners from doing the same. Williams pulls Kea back in a school boy, but the ref notices the feet he has on the ropes and refuses to count. As Williams and the official exchange words, Kea gets to his feet. Williams pushes the ref to the side and runs at Kea, only to go for a ride via frankensteiner. Kea looks to his corner and tries to crawl so he can tag out, but Williams is able to grab his leg and grapevine it. Kea continues to crawl to the corner, but Williams scoots back towards his corner to prevent Kea’s tag and make one of his own.

    Orton comes into the ring and stomps on Kea’s head. As Williams exits the ring, Orton drops to his belly and rises with his opponent. As Kea gets to his feet, Orton jumps up and hits an RKO on him before pinning him…

    Lomo: It took us a while, but we finally have an elimination.

    Sasaki comes into the ring and meets Orton with a forearm. He whips Orton across the ring and gives him a lariat. Sasaki goes for a cover, but the ref points across the ring and claps his hands indicating a tag. Sasaki looks to his opponents’ corner and sees Delirious in the ring, arguing with his partners. Sasaki puts Delirious in a full nelson and drags him across the ring. Yone tags himself into the ring in a similar manner to how Delirious did a minute prior, while Orton, unobserved by the official, rolls onto the apron and begins climbing a neutral corner. Sasaki turns around and Yone climbs to the top rope and jumps off with a knee to Delirious’s head then Sasaki shoves him into the corner. Yone runs to the neutral corner and dropkicks Orton off of it, to the arena floor. Yone goes back to his team’s corner and turns around Delirious and perching him on the top rope only to bring him off with a muscle buster and a lateral press…

    Hewitt: This is bad. With Randy Orton down and out and Edge in his condition. It’s one and a half against 3.

    Lomo: I’d say 1 and three-quarters. Edge has got to be recovering, which is more than we can say for his partner.

    Edge is in the ring before Yone can get to his feet and meets him with a forearm. Edge continues to attack with strikes on Yone’s back. Yone reaches for a tag, but Edge pulls his head back for an edge-o-matic. Edge drags Yone to his corner and Yone, from his supine position, kicks Edge in the face. Williams drops off the apron and drags Yone out of the ring. Williams gives Yone a forearm as Edge leaves the ring. Yone blocks another forearm and gets his head bashed against the ring apron. Yone looks up and gets speared by Edge. Edge rolls into the ring and the official continues his count from 2. Edge keeps his eyes on his opponent in the corner and Yone has trouble getting up. When he does get up at the count of 8, Williams clotheslines him, which keeps him out for the final 2 counts.

    Lomo: And just like that it’s 1 and 3/4 against 2.

    Hewitt: And it looks like we’re back to the same two that started it.

    Morishima comes into the ring and gets dropkicked by Edge. Before Edge isn’t even standing before he looks to his corner, but he can’t do anything before Morishima has climbed on top of him and grabs his arm. Morishima wrings the arm then puts it on the mat where he gives the shoulder a good stomp. Morishima puts Edge in a hammerlock, but is too focused on the one arm to notice Williams is able to reach Edge’s free arm. With Morishima still on Edge, Williams stomps on his back. When Morishima starts to get up, Williams puts him in an Oklahoma roll…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: Tommy Williams eliminates Morishima. I can’t believe it!

    Hewitt: And apparently neither did Morishima.

    Morishima commences to beating up Morishima until the official intervenes, at which point Morishima gives him a good kick to the stomach and tosses him out of the ring. Sasaki runs into the ring and convinces his partner to leave the ring as a handful of officials come from backstage.

    Hewitt: He’s already eliminated; what else can they do to him for beating up the ref?

    Lomo: Take his name out of the already long odds of the second chance battle royal?

    Hewitt: I guess the powers that be are screwed.

    Williams gets to his feet and Sasaki pushes him chest-first into the ropes and delivers a king buster followed by a cover…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: Well, that there’s no shocker… and neither is this.

    Edge isn’t quick to get in the ring, but Sasaki has no problem pulling him into the ring. Edge pushes Sasaki away and throws a punch, but Sasaki blocks it and chops Edge back to the ropes. He whips his opponent across the ring. Edge ducks a clothesline and rebounds with a spinning heel kick. Edge scrambles to a corner and tries to plot his next move while holding his shoulder. Sasaki stands up and runs to the corner where Edge stands. Edge gets out of the way, but Sasaki stops before he hits the corner at full speed. Edge chops at Sasaki’s chest, but Sasaki hits back a lot harder. Sasaki scoops Edge up and carries him to the middle of the ring where he delivers a shoulder breaker and covers him…
    1…
    2…

    Edge kicks out. Sasaki picks Edge up, but Edge lands a punch on him. Sasaki lands a knee to Edge’s stomach and pushes him against the ropes. Out of desperation, Edge bounces off the ropes and spears Sasaki, but is unable to capitalize. Both men lie on the mat with neither able to move as the ref begins to count them both out. Edge looks to the corner, but Orton is still nowhere to be found. As the ref nears 10 in his count, both men slowly get to their feet and find themselves right next to each other. Orton rolls into the ring and gives Sasaki an RKO- then he gives one to his own partner. Orton pulls Sasaki on top of Edge and tells the ref to count…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Orton rolls Sasaki over and covers him…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: And they called Edge the ultimate opportunist. Randy Orton was out of the ring for at least three fourths of that match and just came in for the victory.

    Hewitt: He won. He’s the only survivor. That's all that matters to him.

    Lomo: Well, both he and Edge had to know that partnership wouldn't last for ever.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

    Default Re: King of Wrestling Tournament- 2006

    Hewitt: A team of 2nd generation wrestlers against a team of fellers from ECW and Chet the Jett.


    Lomo: Yeah, I’m not sure how he fits into that team either, but he might be able to counter the opponents’ advantage in youthful energy.


    2 Cold Scorpio/ Rob Van Dam/ Sabu/ Chet the Jett vs. Cody Runnels/ Dos Caras Jr/ Misterioso II/ Perro Aguayo Jr.


    Scorpio and Runnels start in the ring. As soon as they lock up, Runnels gets taken for a ride via an armdrag. Runnels gets up and Scorpio locks up with him, pushing him back to the corner. He tags in RVD behind Runnels’s back. Scorpio and RVD both kick at Runnels until he is lying down- at which point the kicks turn to stomps.


    The official gets Scorpio to leave the ring. Meanwhile, RVD runs to the ropes and comes off with a dropkick to a sitting Runnels. RVD sets up Runnels away from the corner and gestures to himself with his thumbs before running to the ropes. Dos Caras pulls down the top rope and RVD falls out of the ring. Dos Caras drops down from the apron, which causes Chet and Sabu to come around the ring. A large fracas breaks out when Misterioso and Aguayo also get involved as Runnels tries to roll toward his corner and Sabu enters the ring. Sabu runs across the ring, steps on Runnels, and dives over the top rope on top of all the men outside of the ring. Sabu is the first man to his feet outside the ring and he helps RVD back into the ring. Both men in the ring struggle to get to their feet, but Van Dam is just a hair faster. He jumps onto the middle rope and comes off with a kick to Runnels’s head. He then pulls himself to the top rope, but Dos Caras climbs to the apron and shakes the rope, causing RVD to crotch the rope. Dos Caras enters the ring and gives Van Dam a superplex- onto Runnels. Dos Caras celebrates as the ref counts...
    1…
    2…
    3


    Caras turns around and sees what happened. He immediately puts Van Dam in a cross armbreaker. Van Dam taps out just a second too early as Sabu comes into the ring with a chair. Dos Caras gets bashed in with the chair. The ref looks out of the ring and sees Aguayo and Misteriosos out cold. The ref comes to the accurate conclusion and disqualifies Sabu, who appears pleased by the situation. Chet the Jett comes into the ring and covers Caras…

    Scorpio rolls Aguayo into the ring and the Jett covers him…

    Scorpio and the Jett combine to do the same to Misterioso…

    Sabu goes back to beating his opponents with chairs.


    Hewitt: This guy is nuts. He was nuts 10 years ago in ECW.


    Lomo: And he’s disqualified. The 2 survivors are 2 Cold Scorpio and Chet the Jett.


    Hewitt: I’m sure they’re glad they’re with the nut and not against him.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

    Default Re: King of Wrestling Tournament- 2006

    Atlantis/ La Mascara/ James Storm/ Chris Harris (w/ Gail Kim) vs. Crazy Boy/ Juventud Guerrera/ Joe Lider/ Psichosis II

    Harris and Guerrera start off the ring. They circle each other and stop with their backs to neutral corners. Guerrera tries to lock up, but gets a fist in his stomach. A series of punches to his midsection sends Guerrera to a corner. Harris continues to pound on his opponent, ignoring the official’s count. Crazy Boy comes into the ring to try to break up the action, but this draws Storm to get involved. Before too long the ref loses all control of the action and 8 wrestlers are in the ring. The ref realizes the futility of trying to get everybody out of the ring as each member of a team pairs off with an opponent and goes to a corner. Crazy Boy places Atlantis on the top rope in a corner. Mascara puts Guerrera on the top rope in another. Harris places Lider on the top rope in a different corner and Storm puts Psicosis in the remaining corner. After near simultaneous superpleces, Harris, Storm, and Mascara cover their opponents. The ref gets down to count all 3 pins and Crazy Boy breaks up the cover on Guerrera.
    1… Crazy Boy breaks up the cover on Lider.
    2… Crazy Boy breaks up the final cover on Psicosis.

    Lomo: I’ve never seen anything like that.

    Harris clobbers Crazy Boy from behind while Mascara works to get the remaining opponents out of the ring. Storm joins the fray and bearhugs Crazy Boy while Harris climbs to the top rope Storm lowers Crazy Boy as Harris jumps off the rope for a leg drop. Harris covers Crazy Boy as Storm and Mascara make sure there is no interruption from the other three opponents.

    1…
    2…

    The official insists that Storm and Mascara leave the ring (Atlantis having rolled under the ropes before the pin). They comply, but Storm also gives the nearby Psicosis a kick in the stomach before helping him into the ring. Harris helps Psicosis to his feet then executes a fisherman’s suplex…
    1…
    2..
    Psicosis kicks out. Harris tries to pull Psicosis to his feet, but Psicosis pulls him down into a small package…
    1…
    2…
    Harris kicks out. Harris is much faster to his feet and stomps on Psicosis, who was trying to get to the corner to tag. Harris punches Lider and Guerrera. Both men try to come into the ring for revenge, which distracts the official while the four opponents beat down Psicosis. The looks over his shoulder to see Harris covering Psichosis and takes a moment to get into position…
    1… Lider and Guerrera are already in the ring and coming towards the pin
    2… Guerrera is able to get around Storm
    Guerrera breaks up the pin. Storm grabs Guerrera by the leg and puts him in an achilles lock. Atlantis and Mascara take Lider to his team’s corner and pound on him. Harris joins his partner against Guerrera while the ref tries to break everything up. Realizing his attempt is futile, he calls for bell and has the ring announcer do his job.

    RA: Ladies and gentlemen, the referee has disqualified Joe Lider, Juventud Guerrera, James Storm, Atlantis, and La Mascara.

    Hewitt: That’s a terrible way to leave this tournament.

    Lomo: The ref tried to get them out and he isn’t dumb enough to get involved physically. These guys are twice his size.

    With the official still distracted by the bedlam around him, he does not see Psicosis giving Harris a low blow. He does, however, see Harris on the receiving end of a small package…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Lomo: That’s a terrible way to leave the tournament.

    Hewitt: So Psicosis II is the sole survivor?

    Lomo: Well, he was the legal man when the other three opponents were dq’ed, so he’s credited with eliminating all of them.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

    Default Re: King of Wrestling Tournament- 2006

    Lomo: This is the last elimination match.

    Hewitt: We’ve been doing this round for a year it seems.

    John Cena/ Sangre Azteca/ Vampiro/ Negro Casas vs. AJ Styles/ Tarzan Boy/ Matt Sydel/ Manabu Nakanishi

    Styles tells Nakanishi to get into the ring and Azteca steps up to the challenge ahead of his partners. The two men lock up and Nakanishi starts off by raising a knee to his opponent’s stomach then giving him a body slam. Azteca quickly gets back to his feet. Nakanishi grabs his arm and puts him in an armbar. Nakanishi pulls his opponent in close and slaps him a few times before pushing him away. Azteca runs to Nakanishi and throws a wild punch, but Nakanishi dodges the punch and picks up Azteca in an Argentine backbreaker. Azteca is nowhere near the ropes and his opponents do not attempt to help. He submits.

    Hewitt: I don’t think Sangre Azteca’s team saw the pain he was in.

    Lomo: Nakanishi clearly followed the suggestion of AJ Styles. His team has a one man advantage and may have more defined leadership too.

    Cena and Vampiro both come into the ring, but the ref stops Cena, keeping the number of wrestlers in the ring to two. Vampiro runs to Nakanishi with a shoulder block, but Nakanishi barely steps back. Vampiro points to a set of ropes. Nakanishi runs to that one and Vampiro runs across the ring. Styles gets Nakanishi to stop at the ropes, but Vampiro keeps running. He goes for a big boot, but Vamprio dodges it. Vampiro has one leg over the top rope and one in the ring when Nakanishi clotheslines him to the mat, all in the ring. Nakanishi tags in Tarzan Boy.

    Tarzan Boy takes a moment for Vampiro to get to his feet and unloads with a series of punches and chops until Vampiro is backed into a neutral corner. Tarzan Boy whips his opponent across the ring and runs in after him. Tarzan Boy jumps onto the second rope and monkey flips Vampiro, but Vampiro lands on his feet and superkicks Tarzan Boy out of his boots. Vampiro goes to his corner to tag out.

    Cena comes into the ring and is quick to pull Tarzan Boy away from the ropes, and his teammates, by his foot. Given that he has his opponent in this position, Cena applies the STFU. The ref is calling for the bell within 10 seconds. Everybody from the corner tries to step in to replace Tarzan Boy, but Styles tells his team that this is his opponent.

    Lomo: This is what we wanted to see!

    Hewitt: It’ll take 10 years to get these two in the same ring again.

    The two men circle each other, getting closer each time. Finally, they get close enough for contact. Styles blocks a punch and lands one of his own. Styles does not block Cena’s second punch and gets knocked back into the ropes. As he bounces off Styles punched again and whipped across the ring. Cena gives his opponent a back body drop. Styles gets up and receives another whip into the ropes. This time Styles leap frogs Cena, and does a Pele kick. Cena goes down and Styles jumps up for a knee drop onto Cena’s head. Cena gets to his feet and is met with a spin kick to his abdomen. Styles prepares for a DDT, but Cena charges forward to put Styles in his corner. Casas tags Cena on the back.

    Casas comes into the ring and runs to the ropes. Cena moves out of the way in time for Casas to deliver a dropkick that sends Styles to a sitting position in the corner. Casas goes back to the ropes and dropkicks Styles in the corner. Casas pulls his opponent away from the corner and tries put on a scorpion deathlock, but Styles grabs Casas by the head for an inside cradle…
    1…
    2.
    Casas kicks out. Casas is the first man standing and throws a kick at his sitting opponent, but Styles lies down to avoid it. Styles kips up his legs and does a frankensteiner to get the upper hand. While Casas tries to get up, kicks him in the ribs and tags Sydal while bringing Casas to his feet. Styles whips Casas into the ropes and catches Casas with an inverted atomic drop and Sydal dropkicks Casas from that position. After a standing moonsault, the ref counts…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: Only 2.

    Lomo: No, the ref is signalling 3. Negro Casas did not kick out in time.

    Hewitt: And he doesn’t look happy about that decision.

    While Casas argues with the ref, Vampiro reaches into his tights and pulls out a black glove, which he proceeds to use on each of his opponents. He puts the glove in his tights and does a nail in the coffin on Sydal. Casas leaves the ring in time for the ref to make the count…
    1...
    2...
    3

    Nakanishi comes into the ring with revenge on his mind. Vampiro escapes the ring and Nakanishi gives chase. Vampiro rounds a corner and rolls into the ring. Nakanishi does likewise and Vampiro is ready for him with an elbow to his back and series of knees to his head. Styles enters the ring to protest this as Nakanishi is in the ropes, but that only allows Vampiro time to pull the glove out of his tights. Styles leaves the ring, but not before Vampiro gives Nakanishi a shot between the eyes. The ref turns back in time to see Vampiro covering Nakanishi with a leg hooked…
    1…
    2…
    Nakanishi gets a foot on the ropes. Vampiro looks to his corner to see Cena reaching out his hand. Vampiro decides to take a break and tags out. Cena steps into the ring and tells something to the ref. The ref checks Vampiro for a weapon and finds the glove. He orders Vampiro to leave the ring. Meanwhile, Cena hits the FU and covers Nakanishi…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: Cena just tattled on his own partner.

    Lomo: No time for that now.

    Styles runs into the ring and Cena does a drop toe hold. He tries to wrap Styles in the STFU, but Styles rolls away from Cena before the hold can be applied. Cena is still on his belly as Styles grabs his arm and wrings it around. He puts Cena into a hammer lock. Cena rolls so that his back is top of Styles and then rolls to his knees. Cena fights his way to his feet and Styles realeses the hold. Styles does a discuss clothesline and Cena turns around just in time to dodge it. Cena punches Styles twice, shakes his hand in front of his face then drops Styles with a third punch. Cena hooks a leg…
    1…
    2
    Styles kicks out. Cena puts Styles in a rear chinlock.

    Lomo: So Vampiro was disqualified for using a loaded glove when his own partner told on him.

    Hewitt: He might be thinking one less guy for the next round. He’s not above breaking the rules, himself.

    Lomo: He certainly took advantage of that shot from Vampiro.

    Styles fights his way to his feet and turns so that he is now in a headlock. Styles elbows Cena in the stomach then does a belly to back suplex. Styles doesn’t even leave his back as he puts Cena in a leg grapevine. As Cena sits up and tries to sit up and break the hold, Styles turns both men over and appears to be going for a half crab, but transitions to put Cena in the STFU. Cena crawls to the ropes and pulls himself out of the ring. Styles runs to the ropes then jumps to the top rope for a plancha onto his opponent. Styles helps Cena to his feet and rolls him into the ring. Styles climbs onto the apron then pulls himself to the top rope for a 450 splash, but he hits nothing but canvas as Cena rolls out of the way. Cena stands up Styles and pulls him up to his shoulders. Styles rolls off of Cena’s shoulders and kicks Cena in the stomach. Styles prepares for the Styles clash, but Cena escapes with a back body drop. Styles lands on his feet and goes for a kick, but Cena catches the foot. He spins Styles around and picks him up onto his shoulders and throws him off with an FU. Cena hooks a leg…
    1…
    2…
    3

    Hewitt: And that is the end of the tag team elimination matches.

    Lomo: But don't forget the battle royal. Also those who eliminated the most opponents get an edge in the random drawing.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

    Umaga
    Noamichi Marufuji

    Lomo: As you can see we have our 20 men for this battle royal. Given how this was drawn, it’s no surprise that Chris Harris, the only loser credited with 3 eliminations made it into this event.

    Hewitt: The elimination is over the top and both feet must touch the ground. I only see one maybe two guys who can throw Umaga out of the ring.

    Lomo: He won’t have Estrada to give him advice. There are no managers at ringside for this match.

    The bell continues to echo in the arena as Umaga begins hammering Jarrett, Evans, and Zorro in a corner. Batista does likewise in the middle of the ring to Marufuji and Aoki. The remainder of the men pair off, excepting for Mitch who stays on the mat and wraps his limbs around the ropes. Umaga gets the first elimination by throwing Evans over the top rope and Batista tries to one up him by pushing Marufuji and Aoki to the side and running to the ropes to clothesline Jarrett and Zorro for elimination. Umaga and Batista exchange blows until the remaining men in the battle attack, excepting again for Mitch, who is sticking with his gameplan.

    Hewitt: Mitch’ll be in the match for a long time, but he won’t eliminate anyone.

    Lomo: They’ve got enough guys on Umaga to throw him out, but it looks like they’re trying to beat him down.
    Albright takes advantage of the two biggest men being in their positions and pulls Aoki off of Batista. He takes Aoki across the ring and throws him over the top rope, but Aoki hangs on to land on the apron. Aoki steps back into the ring as Albright tries to pick his next opponent. Albright grabs Edge by the hair from the pile on Batista, but gets a shot to his back from Aoki. Aoki and Edge team up to eliminate Albright. Then Edge punches Aoki and begins working on trying to eliminate him. Meanwhile, Umaga begins getting up and fighting back against the squad of men on him and Batista rolls out of the ring, causing the men who were on him to fight each other or break away.

    Lomo: Not a bad showing from the WON Rookie of the year, He’s holding on with both Edge and Chris Harris each on a leg.

    Hewitt: Umaga’s fighting off a whole mess of guys and you want to talk about someone who’s getting eliminated?

    Batista goes around a corner and begins pounding on Mitch from outside the ring. Mitch lets go of the rope and rolls to the middle of the ring and Batista follows him. Meanwhile, Umaga has most of his opponents off of him, stunning the last man, Sabu with a headbutt. Umaga throws Sabu over the top rope for the elimination. Batista and Castagnoli stomp away at Mitch until Kennedy, who previously had been going at it with Castagnoli, gives Batista a shot to the stomach and pushes him back to the ropes as Aoki is pushed over the top rope, but he lands on the apron again and rolls back in. Manson leaves Akiyama in a corner and runs to try to push Harris over the top rope. Gedo pats Castagnoli on the shoulder and gestures to Kennedy. Both men attack Kennedy, which frees up Batista. Batista helps his newly found allies and helps them eliminate Kennedy. Gedo and Castagnoli begin working on Batista and get a helping hand from Kennedy from out of the ring.

    Hewitt: They’re gonna let that go. Batista is gone.

    Lomo: So for those of you having trouble keeping track: Mr. Kennedy, Batista, Bret Albright, Sabu, El Zorro, Charles Evans, and Jeff Jarrett are eliminated. Gedo and Claudio Castagnoli have just begun stomping on Mitch. Edge and Charley Manson have been trying to get Chris Harris to let go of the top rope. Atlantis and Jun Akiyama are going at it in a corner with Naomichi Marufuji. Atsushi Aoki is trying to hide in a corner. And Umaga is punishing Dos Caras Jr and Christian Cage with shoulder thrusts in a third corner.

    Hewitt: Oh, like we can’t all see that.

    Aoki runs across the ring to jump on Umaga’s back. Umaga stands up, turns around and smashes Aoki, Cage and Caras in the corner. Meanwhile, Castagnoli and Gedo pick up Mitch and toss him out of the ring, with him completely unable to even try to save himself. Gedo goes to give Charly Manson a shot to the jaw. Manson responds with a takedown. Castagnoli runs to Umaga and gives him a forearm. He then scoops up Umaga and takes him to the ropes, but
    Umaga gouges his eyes to escape. Aoki and Cage each grab one of Umaga’s legs while Castagnoli and Dos Caras try to recover. Meanwhile, Manson has gotten the upper hand against Gedo as the latter is on the former’s shoulders and pushing against the top rope to avoid going over. Edge decides to give Harris a break and pounds on one of Gedo’s arms, causing him to bend enough for Manson to send him to the arena floor. Edge eyes Castagnoli still trying to shake off the eye gouge. Edge runs across the ring as Manson gives Akiyama a shot from behind. Umaga begins clubbing his would-be eliminators as Castagnoli goes down via spear. Dos Caras comes in to help Edge get the Swissman off the mat and over the top rope.

    Lomo: Edge has a reputation as an opportunist and it’s obviously well earned. That makes half of our original athletes eliminated.

    Umaga hiptosses Cage over the top rope, but Cage lands on the apron. Umaga takes Aoki by the head and runs it into Cage’s for the elimination. As Umaga is about to throw out Aoki, Edge and Dos Caras attack the Samoan. Across the ring, Harris pulls Marufuji away from his opponents with a full nelson then slams him to the mat. Harris positions Marufuji for a catapult and Marufuji goes over the top rope, but hangs on to stay on the apron. Harris runs at his opponent, but Marufuji pulls the rope down and Harris’s momentum is the cause of his own elimination as Marufuji rolls into the ring under the bottom rope. Atlantis sees Marufuji coming back in and leaves the corner with Manson and Akiyama to wear down Marufuji with a seated surfboard. Meanwhile, Umaga picks up Aoki by the throat and just heaves him out of the ring.

    Hewitt: There’s no submitting in this match. Atlantis ain’t thinking straight.

    Lomo: As long as he’s on the ground, he can’t be thrown over the top rope. And it always helps to hurt your opponent.

    Edge and Dos Caras push Umaga to the ropes and again try to lift the big guy out of the ring. Umaga pounds each man across the back and Edge decides he’ll take the easier route and give Manson and Akiyama the tip they need to go over the top rope. Edge then stomps on Atlantis and makes it his mission to throw him out. Edge throws Atlantis out at the same time Umaga eliminates Dos Caras across the ring. As soon as Edge turns around, Marufuji eliminates him with a super kick. Marufuji turns around to dodge a charge from Umaga, who gets caught in the ropes. Marufuji tries to lift Umaga over the rope, but the big fellow is too heavy for him to get both legs off the ground. Umaga gets the upper hand with an elbow. He takes Marufuji to the corner and headbutts him. Umaga whips Marufuji across the ring and Marufuji hits the turnbuckle and rolls over the top rope to the apron and then to the floor.

    Lomo: Umaga gets the win. He’ll be in the next round after a dominant performance.

    Hewitt: Finally we can move on to one-on-one matches.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.
