Street Profits def. Heavy Machinery (Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic First Round Match)
The Street Profits managed to escape the grizzly grasp of Heavy Machinery to punch their ticket to the Semifinals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
Montez Ford and Otis Dozovic found some common ground at the beginning of the match, sharing a drink from Street Profits’ famed solo cup. However, the 330-pound goliath then used the cup as a distraction before barreling over his opponent. From there, Dozovic and Tucker Knight used Ford as a human battering ram on Angelo Dawkins, who was tied up in the corner of the ring.
Heavy Machinery continued their domination behind their overwhelming size and strength advantage, but their momentum was soon sidetracked. As Heavy Machinery looked to hit their “Compactor” double-team maneuver, Ford pulled down the ropes, sending Knight spiraling to the outside.
Dawkins took advantage, hitting a DDT on Dozovic before tagging in Ford, who hit a sensational Frog Splash for the victory.
The Street Profits’ impressive victory moves them into the next round of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, where they will battle The Authors of Pain in a must-see Semifinal showdown.
