#4 Men’s contender Buckshot Henderson vs. #1 Heartland contender Ken Kardoucheian- #4 ranking in the Men’s Division on the line.
-Henderson started quickly and dominated the first minute. Kardoucheian grew into the match. There was a nice spot where Henderson blatantly threw a low blow that put Kardoucheian down- then Ken came back with a back kick. Henderson put Ken away starting with a senton dive off the top turnbuckle… a knee to the back of the leg, jawbreaker, and then a vicious series of punches and kicks. Henderson covers and he wins.
Buckshot Henderson wins at 4:42
Henderson holds on to his spot in the Men’s Division. Kardoucheian remains in the Men’s Heartland Division.
‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann watches the Henderson-Ken Kardoucheian match with great interest.
