Bobby Lashley defeated Tommy Dreamer in a Street Fight
The champ basically dominates Dreamer from beginning to end. Yes, Dreamer did get some offense in. Lashley locks in a bear hug and then a belly to belly suplex. Dreamer gets his offense in when he sends Lashley face first into a trash can. He hits a DDT and gets a two count. Lashley clotheslines Dreamer from the top rope and he targets his opponent. Dreamer gets hit with a massive Spear and the champion wins.
It was not much of a street fight, was it? Even Taz mentioned how most of it was in the ring. I would have loved to see Lashley get extreme and take out Dreamer. I like Dreamer, but this was extremely unbelievable. There was no way he was going to win and the fact that they gave him a few offensive moves on a guy like Lashley is hard to wrap my mind around. The match was not terrible, but it was just so-so.
Taryn Terrell defeated Madison Rayne
The match starts with quick pin fall attempts. A sunset flip gives Terrell a two count. She moves and Madison falls out of the ring. Taryn misses a body splash from the apron. Rayne picks her up and throws her back into the ring. Rayne hits a dropkick and ducks a clothesline before getting hit with a few clotheslines. Rayne knees her in the stomach and tries to wrap her up for the win. The Knockouts throws elbows back and forth and Taryn hits a snap suplex. Rayne counters with a unique kick to her face. Madison and Taryn head up top and Taryn hits a flying clothesline. She hits a few more and a swinging neckbreaker. Crossbody block only gets Taryn a two count. Rayne tries to cheat with her feet on the rope. Taryn hits an RKO type move for the win.
Although some of the moves and transitions seemed a little sloppy at times, it was an overall good match. Taryn deserved the win and Madison continues to help the “newer” Knockouts. Taryn has a great look and she continues to improve in the ring. I wonder what WWE did not see in her, because she has been nothing but consistent in the ring since arriving to TNA. Gail and Taryn will put on a great match. They have the chemistry and the knowledge of each other’s ability in the ring. I expect a great championship match forthcoming.
