Aleister Black & Ricochet def. Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel
ORLANDO, Fla. – The too fast-and-furious combination of Aleister Black & Ricochet outlasted double-trouble maulers Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel to advance to the Semifinals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
Through the duration of the match, Aichner & Marcel’s gridiron-style offense played like a Venus flytrap to Black & Ricochet’s high-flying attacks, which forced the momentum to shift back and forth. An air traffic controller was indeed necessary for the head-spinning aerial exchanges between Aichner and Ricochet.
After a springboard tornado DDT from Aichner on Ricochet failed to secure a three-count, The One and Only recovered to his feet to fend off a double-team attack and tag in The Striking Man from Amsterdam, who withstood Aichner’s sticky defensive maneuvers before dropping him with a jaw-rattling Black Mass for the victory and entry into the Dusty Classic’s Semifinals.
