Umaga def. Eugene

Since debuting on RAW in April, the Samoan Bulldozer, Umaga, has plowed through every opponent that's been brave enough to step into the ring with him. At Vengeance that trend continued, as well as Umaga's impressive undefeated streak, as he faced off against Eugene.

For moral—or perhaps mental—support, Eugene summoned for "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, Doink the Clown, and Kamala to join him at ringside. Unfortunately, the three WWE Legends' experience and wisdom didn't add much to Eugene's in-ring performance, and the match was over shortly after the referee called for the starting bell.

The 350-pound Samoan monster never lost control of the match. Although Eugene was able to land a few offensive blows, they weren't enough to stun Umaga long enough to deliver any significant damage before Umaga hit Eugene with a Samoan Spike for the three count. After the match, Umaga continued his assault on Eugene as the WWE Legends at ringside stepped into the ring to come to Eugene's aid.

First, "Hacksaw" tried to nail Umaga with a three-point stance, but was caught with a stiff clothesline and knocked to the canvas. Then it was Doink's turn. Umaga smacked him with the Samoan Spike, sending Doink to join Duggan lying limp on the mat. As Kamala climbed into the ring, Armando Alejandro Estrada, Umaga's manager, coerced the Samoan Bulldozer to leave the ring without tangling with Ugandan Giant. As Umaga walked up the ramp, visibly angry and baffled at his manager's decision, he kept his eyes fixed on Kamala, leaving WWE fans wondering what will happen next between these two massive Superstars.

After the match Armando Alejandro Estrada told WWE.com why he ushered Umaga away from the ring before he could go nose to nose with Kamala.

"Umaga had gone through three big dummies, okay? It's not that easy," Estrada said. "Now, you want to bring out the Ugandan head hunter from deepest darkest Africa? Hey, not tonight, amigo. Not tonight. Some other time."

As for the other two WWE Legends Umaga decimated tonight, Estrada added these unflattering words.

"‘Hacksaw' went out of style in 1985, just like his 2 x 4. And Doink? They want to bring back clowns? Hey, last time I check this is WWE, not Barnum & Bailey or Ringling Bros," he said.

Still, the manager insists his client's performance tonight at Vengeance speaks for itself.

"What needs to be said about Umaga that hasn't already been said?" Estrada asked. "He is the Samoan Bulldozer, and there is not a lot of people that can stand up to him."
