Ha cant believe this happened a decade ago... the first time I attended a #wwesingapore
live show. It comprised of wrestlers from #wwesmackdown
(the watered down 3rd wheel) and a few wrestlers were absent due to injury or 'personal tragedy' (like what occurred on 23/06)
Opening match: mths before he retired at WM24, #ricflair
defeated the Masterpiece #chrismasters
by submission with the Figure 4 leglock.
2nd match: before they were repackaged as #curthawkins #zackryder
, they were known as the Major Brothers, competing against Deuce & Domino for the WWE Tag Team Championship.
3rd match: years before she became the inaugural Divas Champion or the 3rd Mrs Calaway, #michellemccool
squared off against #lisamarievaron
also known as Victoria back then.
4th match: years before he debuted in TNA as The Pope D'Angelo Dinero, #elijahburke
wrestled under his real name and defeated ECW Original #stevierichards
with a roll-up (and with his feet on the ropes!).
5th match: #kanewwe
defeated the Irish brawler #finlay
with a chokeslam, but not before having a bit of fun with #hornswoggle
. Finlay would attend the WWE Live Shows in 2015 and 2017 as part of the backstage crew.
6th match: ECW Original #tommydreamer
played around with the fur coat of ECW Champion #johnmorrison
(we know who was supposed to win it), but fell victim to the Moonlight Drive.
7th match: The master of the 619 #reymysterio
defeated former best friend #chavoguerrero
with a 619 and Droppin Da Dime.
Main Event: the Rated R Superstar Edge was supposed to be here, but due to a serious injury he sustained wks prior, he had to vacate the World Heavyweight Championship and the winner of a battle royale would take his place. That new world champion was #thegreatkhali
😖😝 who defended the belt against #davebautista
whom Marvel fans recognize as Drax the Destroyer from #gotg
. Due to a DQ finish, the main event was changed into a Tag Team match... Khali and Finlay vs Batista and Kane. Batista Bomb 💣 for the win to end the show on a satisfying note
