Jake has taken RHW by storm, and has disposed of all opponents that have come his way. In this match, he’s up against a newcomer, Gunner Bayani. Gunner comes to Rock Hard by way of an Indy wrestling federation. He’s known for his fast paced action and his aerial assaults on his opponents. He’s confident in his abilities, but will that be enough to take out the machine, Jake? The match opens with Jake in his signature red square cuts and black boots, his muscular body looking as ripped as ever. Gunner is clad in black pro square cuts and black boots, and has a slight height advantage over Jake. Gunner starts right away with the smack talk, saying ‘all this waiting, and this is what I get?’ while Jake just sort of grins back at him. They circle in center ring and Gunner takes the early control with an arm lock, then whips Jake across his shoulder down to the mat. He stomps on him a few times, lifts him to his feet, tosses him across the ring, and delivers a flying leg whip to Jake’s midsection. Jake is down on the mat, somewhat stunned as to how this match has started. Jake has had the upper hand in his previous matches, but Gunner has come out blazing early in this first round, showing Jake his pro skills. Gunner tosses Jake into the corner, runs across the ring, and plants a full body splash against Jake’s muscled torso. He then delivers a few hard chops to Jake’s pecs that leave a glowing red welt. When Gunner climbs to the second rope and pounces across Jake with a full body splash, he attempts a count out, but Jake is easily able to kick out. Jake takes the opportunity to gain control with a shoulder whip on Gunner, and then plants a full force double leg drop kick to Gunner’s midsection. This startles Gunner, and Jake starts beating up on the Indy wrestler. Jake picks him up, walks him over to the corner turnbuckle, and hangs him upside down in a tree of woe, then starts pounding and stomping away on Gunner’s abs, asking ‘does that hurt, does that hurt?’ Jake continues his assault on the lean muscled Indy wrestler, making him suffer through his arsenal of amateur and pro style moves. Jake tosses Gunner across the ring setting him up for a flying body slam, and then straddles the Indy wrestler on the mat and pounds away on his chest. Jake has all the momentum, and continues to just punish Gunner’s body with body slams, boston crabs, and MMA style arm bar submission holds. The machine Jake attempts to get a submission out of Gunner while straddling his back and cranking up with a chin lock, but when Gunner won’t submit, that has Jake shoving his face into the mat, taunting the Indy wrestler to ‘eat the mat!’ Once Jake delivers another double leg drop kick to Gunner’s chest, the energy has been drained from his body, and Jake rolls him up and over onto his shoulders and counts out a 1-2-3 pin count for victory in round one. Jake the machine just won’t be stopped, and as he taunts his opponent asking ‘that losing feels good?’ he gives his fans a double bicep flex.
As round two begins, Jake picks up where he left off placing a few knees to Gunner’s midsection and follows that up with a back handed chop to his pecs. It appears that Jake is going to be in total control of this round, until Gunner ducks under a clothesline, slings back across the ring, and delivers a clothesline of his own right across Jake’s sweaty chest. Gunner is intent on proving his skills here at RHW, and he starts to put Jake through a series of torturous holds, keying in on destroying his left leg. He asks Jake to submit to a leg lock and choke hold combination, but Jake refuses and is able to slip out of the hold and ends up straddling Gunner and locking on a reverse wrist lock that has the Indy wrestler crying out in pain. Jake’s been able to transfer his amateur wrestling skills to the ring very well, and he starts putting a pounding on his smaller opponent, utilizing all four corners of the ring. Gunner summons up enough fortitude to make a comeback and delivers a punishing cross body splash against Jake in the corner, then picks him up for a reverse neck drop that has his sweat drenched torso squirming in pain. But when Gunner climbs up to the second rope and attempts another one of his high flying aerial maneuvers, Jake catches the lightweight in mid-air and cross body slams him into the mat. Gunner has the wind knocked right out of him and is laid out flat, then Jake seizes the moment to lift him up over his shoulders into an over the back torture rack. While Gunner screams out in pain, Jake parades him around the ring across his muscular back, bouncing him up and down like a rag doll to inflict more pain, until Gunner finally has no other choice but to scream out ‘I give, I give’. Jake drops his lifeless body to the mat and proclaims ‘game over’. Round two and the match goes to Jake the machine, as he continues his attack on the RHW roster!
