“Burning Heart” by Survivor plays and Scott Hunter comes through the curtain. The fans welcome him warmly as he pays them no mind this time.
He slides into the ring.
Robbins: And his opponent, hailing from Miami, Florida… This is SCOTT HUNTER!
He starts sneaking up behind Carlos, but Ruiz catches him. When Carlos asks him about it, Hunter feigns innocence, saying he just wanted to shake his hand. The official moves both back to their corners.
As soon as the bell rings both men waste no time running at each other. Ruiz sidesteps Hunter and shoved him into the ropes. On the rebound Ruiz drops down as Hunter leaps over him, but keeps running the ropes. As he gets back to Ruiz, Carlos leaps over him. Hunter keeps running the ropes. As Hunter gets closer Ruiz drops to a knee and swipes the back of Hunter’s leg and goes for a quick pin, the ref didn’t even have a chance to count before Hunter powered out and got to his feet. Ruiz claps at Hunter, and before Hunter could clap as well Ruiz runs at him. Hunter shoves Ruiz into the ropes and as he comes back lifts him in the air and atomic drops him. Ruiz grabs his groin and turns right into a clothesline from Hunter.
Moss: That’s a classic combo right there.
Howley: I see what you did there.
Moss: Honest mistake.
Hunter picks Ruiz up and body slams him to the mat and runs to the ropes and drops a huge fist to the top of Ruiz’s head. Then quickly locks in a side headlock. Ruiz kicks his legs against the mat. Hunter pulls back, really cranking on the neck of Ruiz. With an unintentional thumb to the eye Hunter breaks the hold.
Howley: DQ HIM!
Moss: It was clearly unintentional.
Howley: Oh if the tables were turned you’d be calling for that man’s family!
Moss: Look Ruiz is apologizing.
Hunter is holding his eye as Ruiz crawls over to check on him. Both men help each other to their feet. With a quick shake of each other’s hands they get back into the action. Ruiz kicks the gut of Hunter and grabs the back of his head and drives it to the mat. Ruiz climbs to the middle rope and leaps off, Hunter gets a foot up, knocking Ruiz silly. Hunter rises to his feet as Ruiz shakes the cobwebs out and goes for Spanish Eyes but Hunter catches his foot.
Moss: A little early for that.
Hunter kicks the back leg out from under him while holding onto the foot. He begins to walk through for the Figure Four but Ruiz plants a foot on his ass and knocks Hunter off of him. Both men get to their feet and with a quick nod they are back off to the races.
Moss: Neither man was able to get their shot off, but not for a lack of effort.
Ruiz ducks a clothesline attempt, but Hunter swats away a drop kick attempt himself. The two men exchange blows in the middle of the ring. Hunter takes the upper hand, and goes for a swinging neck breaker, but Ruiz rolls out of it. Ruiz then goes for a suplex but Hunter slides out down Ruiz’s back.
Moss: Both men are a step ahead of the other.
Howley: Doesn’t that mean they are at the same spot?
Moss: Hence the stalemate.
Both men are gasping for air, as they’ve been running around trying to catch the other. Hunter lands a big blow to Ruiz, and is answered right back with a kick of his own. Hunter tries for a running lariat, but Ruiz matrix’s his way out of it. And as soon as Hunter turns around.
The super kick lands clean as Hunter crumbles to the mat. Ruiz falls on top of him as the Ref slides in.
Harold Robbins: The Winner of this match by way of Pinfall…. CARLOS RUIZ!!!!!
Carlos gets to his feet first and bends down and helps Hunter up to his feet. Hunter raises Ruiz’s hand as the crowd cheers both men. After a few seconds he turns and clotheslines Carlos to the ground. The fans right away get angry with Scott Hunter. “Bombeleo” plays in the background but the wrong man walks out with his arms in the air.
Moss: Scott Hunter a bit of a sore loser here!
Howley: Never trust anybody ever, for any reason, at any time. Ever.
