Alex Waters vs Zack Johnathan (KOTR 7)
Since taking the King of the Ring belt from Austin Cooper in KOTR 6, Zack has been enjoying his reign as king. He’s parlayed his success in the ring into greater success outside the ring adding several wise investments to his financial portfolio, taking some time to enjoy the finer things in life, and even managed to squeeze in a non-KOTR match with the teen muscle phenom Tanner Hill, who he disposed of with no troubles. Zack is living large and enjoying every minute of it! But, as Zack was letting the good times roll there were guys lining up to get their shot at the title, namely Ethan Andrews and Alex Waters. Ethan has been on a mission to destroy anyone in his way to get another shot at KOTR after the narrowest of losses against Dash Decker in KOTR 3. He’s won 7 straight matches since then by taking apart the likes of; Bruce Ballard, Rex Bedford, Jax Brewer, and even ripping the clothes off veteran Austin Cooper’s muscle bound body. Meanwhile, Alex has come back to the ring after a short layoff and has been working hard to solidify his superstar status at the top of the roster. Alex also lost a close decision to Dash Decker in KOTR 2, and is also undefeated in his matches since that time. So, it was a very difficult decision as to which of these wrestlers would get another shot at KOTR and Zack. In the end, the nod went to Alex. Of course Ethan was fuming mad when he got the bad news, but Alex was elated with the chance at now claiming a KOTR title. Alex believes he’ll have the advantage over Zack, since he’s already beaten him once, but anything can happen in a best of 5 rounds KOTR matchup! Round one opens with Alex already in the ring stretching and warming up his hot body in anticipation of the big showdown. Zack climbs through the ropes with the belt draped over his should looking all business. The pre-match banter includes the reigning king telling Alex ‘you got to work for it’ as he places the belt around his waist and claims that’s where it belongs. Alex gets a little cocky and grabs the belt and places it around his waist saying it looks better there, but Zack quickly snatches it away and puts back in his corner. The two superstars tie up and immediately lock up in a test of strength with Zack’s muscles prevailing and forcing the cocky fratboy down to the mat. He starts to beat up on the challenger, first with a choke hold and half nelson, then straddles him on the mat and begins attacking his abs. The muscle model continues to work over Alex by; stomping on his legs and hamstrings, standing atop his abs, the punishing him in the corner. But Alex survives and changes the action with another test of strength, pushing Zack back into the corner then begins cranking on his legs before placing him in a rear naked choke that Alex does his best to gain a submission. The reigning king is able to survive and then turns the tables and regains the control. He catches the cocky fratboy with a knee to his gut, then tosses and suplexes him around the ring. When Alex has no idea which way is up and which way is down, Zack hoists him up over his shoulder into a spine crushing backbreaker and squeezes with his mighty muscled arms until the challenger has no choice but to cry out a submission. Zack takes round one and proudly poses his money making muscles over a stunned Alex.
At the start of round two Alex is nursing his aching back and realizing he just got out-muscled by the Z-man. He must be wondering how he needs to change his strategy because there’s no way he can lose this round and go down 2-0 in a best of five KOTR match if he wants any realistic chance of claiming the belt. But as they tie up its Zack again gaining the advantage and focusing on attacking Alex’s abs. He chokes the cocky fratboy over the ring rope then begins an assault on every muscle on the challenger’s hot bod. Zack clamps down on a claw hold to Alex’s shoulder that has every muscle popping from their bodies while Alex seeks to escape. He does manage to turn the momentum on Zack with a front facing headlock that leads to a DDT that leaves the champ nearly knocked out on the mat. The fratboy uses a figure four leg lock around Z-man’s throat to further weaken him, and also connects with several chops to his perfect pecs. Alex has all the momentum and he lifts Zack and heaves him into a powerful body slam setting him up to finish him off. Alex flips him to his stomach and locks on a high arching single leg boston crab that has the king yelling out ‘I give’ to end this round and even this match up at one round each. Round three begins and Alex seizes control with a devastating clothesline and follows that up by pounding and stomping on Zack’s ripped six-pack. Alex continues to pound on Zack’s body and just when it looks like the reigning king is going down in this round he’s able to turn the tables on Alex. He tosses the challenger around the ring with a series of throws and suplexes, dishes punishment out on his gut, and even pays the cocky fratboy back with a couple of bitch slaps to his pecs that smack of pain. Zack really punishes Alex the rest of the way in this round and ultimately finishes him off by scissoring his arms behind his head and forcing a submission. Alex reluctantly gives up as the sweat drips off his battered body, as the king looks down on him in satisfaction. Zack takes a 2-1 advantage going into the fourth round. Does Alex have enough left in him to defeat the reigning king in the next two rounds and snatch the belt that’s been eluding him for years? Or, can Zack and his mouth watering muscles continue to fend off the cocky fratboy to retain his KOTR title? All the spectacular action in this 37 minute epic battle leads to a stunning finish you’re sure to enjoy!
Alex Waters & Ethan Andrews vs Austin Cooper & Zack Johnathan
This match features four of the biggest names in wrestling today! It also includes some fascinating storylines between these all-star wrestlers. On the surface this match is a bad boys vs good guys battle, with Alex and Ethan as two of the baddest boys on the roster, each of them get a kick out of destroying and punishing their opponents. On the opposite side of the ring, there is Austin and Zack, two of the most experienced and successful g uys who also happen to be good guys outside the ring. But if you dig down further, each one of these all-stars have their own reasons for wanting to be in this match. Alex is feeling all high and mighty after his victory over Zack in KOTR 7 and is willing to take on any challenge. Ethan is still fuming about not getting his shot at Zack and the KOTR belt and is looking to take out his anger on any opponent, but especially Zack. Austin is seeking to work his way back up to the top and wants his shot at Alex. And Zack, he’s still distraught about losing the KOTR belt and wants a shot at redemption. These two tag team pairings might seem a little odd at the time, but this match is going to sort out the pecking order for things to come at Rock Hard as we enter 2017. The match opens with Zack and Austin on one side of the ring pumping some iron and warming up their spectacular muscles in anticipation of the showdown. And on the other side, the two bad boys are talking strategy and also mocking their musclehead opponents as they prepare to enter the ring. Of course, with these four wrestlers there is an array of trash talking before the action begins and that’s no surprise. It’s Austin and Ethan to kick off the action in round one. The bad boy Ethan scores first with a few swift kicks to the redhead’s leg, then once he has him on the mat Ethan clamps on a rear choke hold and follows up with a tight arm bar. Coop is able to use his brute strength to escape and tag in his partner but that doesn’t faze Ethan, he quickly has the muscle model in a side headlock and then bulldogs him head first into the mat. Ethan tags in Alex to get his shot at Zack and the cocky fratboy scoops the Z-man up and slams him down to the mat. Zack recovers to his feet and that’s when Alex challenges the muscle model to a test of strength. That turns out to be a bad idea as Zack turns the momentum. He shoves Alex into the turnbuckle which gives Team Austin/Zack an opportunity to double team the reigning king. They beat on Alex’s abs and punish him in the ropes. Austin is tagged in and he continues with the control by power slamming the fratboy. Alex is finally able to tag in Ethan and before you know it Team Alex/Ethan is double teaming and having their way with Austin. Z-man climbs through the ropes to help out his partner, then a wild melee breaks out with all four guys in the ring. The round continues with non-stop action and each team executing their strategy in search of claiming round one. Toward the end it seems like Team Alex/Ethan have all the momentum to put this round away, but Austin steps in to save the day. Coop senses his team is going to lose this round so when he has the chance to play dirty he takes advantage. He goes after Alex’s bum knee and locks on a super tight, extremely painful figure four leg lock and doesn’t let go until he hears the cocky fratboy cry out a submission to end his misery. Team Austin/Zack snatch round one and high five each other in triumph.
Round two begins with Ethan providing an encouraging back massage to Alex in an effort to boost his spirits before going back in to face Austin once again. Coop challenges the fratboy to a biceps pose-off, and both flex their massive arms for the other to admire. It’s hard to pick a winner, but Austin resorts to his sneaky ways and as Alex is striking a double bicep pose he deviously delivers a punch to the gut. Alex is floored by the blow, then Coop picks him up and power bombs him to the mat. Alex wants no part of this beating and quickly tags in Ethan while Austin tags in Zack. The bad boy forces Z-man into the turnbuckle then unleashes an assault on his picture-perfect abs. Ethan then suplexes him out of the corner and into a cradle, which he swiftly transitions into a crotch ripping spladle on the muscle model. Zack endures the pain until he gets to his feet and then catches Ethan in a headlock to reverse the momentum. The fast and fierce action continues deep into the round with both teams exchanging blows, double teaming, and near submissions. Near the end of the round Alex tags in Ethan to take on the Z-man. Zack lifts the skinny street punk up for an atomic drop but Ethan delivers an elbow to the back of Z-man’s head that almost knocks him out. The bad boy swiftly moves in and initially locks on a texas cloverleaf which exerts immense pressure to Zack’s back, and then transitions that to a single leg boston crab applying even more extreme pressure until the hunky hard body has no choice but to submit. Team Alex/Ethan has tied this match up at one round a piece. In round three, each of the teams take their shots at claiming victory, but which of the all-star teams will prevail? All the furious action in this 29 minute match leads up to the winners double teaming the losers into a spectacular, decisive submission!
