Ronnie Pearl vs. Brute Baynard (From The Vault)
FROM THE VAULT: The FTV series presents some of your favorite W4H wrestlers early in their underground career, or early matches filmed that formed the foundation of the W4H empire. Brute Baynard has challenged Ronnie Pearl to do just a single pushup, and although he manages to eke out one, it is not without some extra effort. When Brute asks him to do a sit up, this time Ronnie is unable to accomplish that task, and so Brute asks him what possible hope he has against him in the ring.
The answer. Not much. Several elbow and collar tie ups end up with Pearl being thrown across the ring by the incredibly powerful Baynard. And Baynard continues to abuse the poor Pearl in the most demeaning ways possible, tossing him around the ring like a rag doll, draping him over the top rope in a choke manuveur, standing squarely on his chest while Pearl gasps for air. Several powerful knees to Pearl's midsection leave him doubled over in pain and a vice like abdominal claw finds Pearl screaming for relief.
Somehow Pearl manages to muster up the energy for a small but ultimately unsuccessful comeback. In fact, it may have been better if he hadn't even tried, because this serves only to infuriate Baynard and he comes back at Pearl twice and deadly and twice as quick. Several kicks to Pearl's legs and midsection have Ronnie for a final time, as Brute drops on top of his prone opponent and delivers a 3 count. Certainly not the outing Pearl was expecting or hoping for, and he might want to do a few more exercises to tighten up his core before taking on his next opponent.
TOTAL RUN-TIME: 29 minutes, 12 seconds
