Oh captain, my captain!
DAYTON, Ohio -- If WWE Tag Team C hampions Matt Hardy & Montel Vontavious Porter had to pick a team theme song, a version of "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better" might be a good choice.
Their quest to determine who's better than who continued in Dayton, as MVP challenged Matt to a push-up contest before their scheduled title defense against Deuce & Domino. But being the great guy that he is, "team captain" MVP, always looking out for his partner, offered Matt the chance to forfeit right before the contest.
"Hey, I don't want to wear you out for our match," the cocky United States Champion graciously revealed. "You're sure you want to do this?"
Matt was sure, but had he known how MVP would score the victory, he might have reconsidered. The rules stated that the first man's chest to hit the ground would be the loser; sure enough, as they headed northward of 30, Porter quickly swiped Hardy's arm out from under him, causing Matt to fall face-first onto the canvas. MVP was quickly declared the winner and the two bickered, but had little time to resolve the dispute before a classic car carrying the trio from the Other Side of the Tracks rolled down to the ring.
Despite all the bickering, however, once the bell rings Hardy & Porter have shown themselves to be remarkably cohesive at times. Against Deuce & Domino, a little bit of division showed through as both men seemed to try to one-up the other, but in the end, the result was one they were both happy with.
As all four men battled in the ring, the referee turned to get Deuce back to his corner. Domino quickly removed his belt, looking to whip Hardy like he was a canine from Surry County. Instead, it was MVP who once again stole a page from Jesse "The Body" Ventura's playbook -- win if you can, lose if you must, but always cheat -- by nailing Domino with a low blow. Neither Hardy nor the referee saw it, so Matt quickly followed up with a Twist of Fate for the pinfall.
Unfortunately, that wasn't the end of the champions' night. As they headed to the locker room, their victorious walk was interrupted by Kane. As the Big Red Machine made his entrance to the ring, MVP scurried as far away as possible; Kane looked at both men, but continued on his journey with a wicked smile. Later, while talking to Acting GM Vickie Guerrero, MVP tried to convince her that Matt should battle Undertaker. Instead, Vickie came up with a better match for next week: Undertaker & Kane vs. Hardy & MVP.
The look on Hardy's face -- and MVP's, for that matter -- said all they needed to about the captain's bargaining prowess. Still, the question remains: Can the Felix and Oscar of WWE dismantle the Brothers of Destruction next week?
