When it was announced that 205 Live would have a hand in this year’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament, we knew that Legado Del Fantasma would be favorites to make it far. Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza get their tournament started here against 205 Live standard bearers, Sunil & Sumir Singh, the Bollywood Boyz! Any other year, and they’d be easy pickings, but they’ve really hit their stride in recent matches, and could be the dark horse pick.
The Best Bollywood Boyz We’ve Ever Seen
Mendoza got things started with Sunil, who got his arm and wrist snatched. Sunil would get the ankle pick and take Mendoza down, and gain wrist control, wrenching on it to do some damage. Mendoza got moving after freeing himself, but got Monkey Flipped and sent over the top rope with a lariat. Sunil was 100% focused, and was sure to isolate Mendoza and tag in Sumir. Sumir got a near fall off the crucifix, before going for the arm drag into a simple but effective armbar.
Wilde tagged in but was dropped quick with a toehold, and controlled. Sunil was tagged in and got a double hip toss with Sumir. The tags were quick, and they refused to give Wilde room. Mendoza had to run a distraction, and Wilde nailed a DDT to finally get them some control in this match. Sumir was hit with a double suplex, but kicked out at two and a half, then thrown to the outside.
Legado Del Fantasma Get The Last Second Comeback
Wilde brought Sumir back in the ring, and threw him right into the turnbuckle, chest first. Sumir had a double backdrop scouted, and was able to counter it, throwing Mendoza into Wilde. Mendoza was dodged and ran into the post, allowing a tag to Sunil.
Sunil hit some back elbows and a back body drop. The inverted atomic drop and a spinning heel kick dropped Mendoza, but he got distracted by Wilde at ringside. Sunil maintained the advantage however, slamming both members of Legado’s face relentlessly off the announce table, and then getting Mendoza with a double axe handle off the top rope. Sumir got the top rope elbow drop for a near fall, before setting up the superplex.
Wilde couldn’t make the save, and Bollywood Boyz hit a superplex into elbow drop, but Wilde got the save this time. Legado hit an assisted knee strike, and nailed their finisher for a last minute win. They face the winners of Imperium & Lucha House Party.
