Eli Black vs Alexi Ivanov
The muscular Russian rookie Alexi enters the ring in his debut match to clash with the smaller, but scrappy grappler Eli. This could spell trouble! Eli is coming off his debut match, where he suffered a beating in a close loss to the more experienced Jake Jenkins. He is revved up and ready to start dishing out his own punishment on his Rock Hard opponents in an effort to cement his spot as one of the elites on the roster. Alexi is a fresh, new fitness model here in the US, and though he has spent endless hours in the gym perfecting his well-built body, heís a wet behind the ears wrestler. Heís counting on his larger size and muscle to counter Eliís superior wrestling experience in this match up. Round one begins with Eli in his white square cuts, which accentuate his splendid assets, and blue boots, while Alexi looks pristine in his striped square cuts and white boots. Eli questions the Russian, saying Ďyouíre not from around here are you?í, and challenges him stating Ďletís put those Russian muscle to the test!í. Eli locks up with the 6 foot Alexi and immediately takes him to the mat with a firemanís carry, then pulls him back up to his feet into an inverted choke and starts bashing away at his abs, before drilling him down into the mat. He continues to dominate the Russian rookie with his arsenal of holds, including a body splash to his midsection from the corner turnbuckle, a suplex that plants the Russian on flat on his back, and continues to stomp and pound away at every inch of Alexiís impressive physique. All the while, Eli taunts him, saying ĎIím not even working up a sweat with youí, and wondering why heís even came to the US?í, as he squirms and suffers down on the mat. Eli is clearly enjoying dishing out the punishment on the rookie, enjoying every moment he inflicts more agony on his opponent. Alexi is probably wondering what heís got himself into, and more importantly, how heís going to get out of this trouncing. At one point Eli proclaims the only reason heís tired is because heís whipping his ass, and drags the rookie up to his feet, even trying to encourage to fight back a little before throwing him back to the mat with an arm whip, cranking on an arm bar, and threatening to break his arm. Eli then starts delivering a series of fists to Alexiís ribcage that connect so hard they can be heard on the other side of the arena. To this point in round one, itís been a total one sided squash on the poor Russian, with his muscular body taking a severe beating. Eli stays on the attack, determined to inflict pain on every inch of Alexiís tall, muscular body. He picks him up by his head, walks him over to the ropes, laces his long-legged body thru the ring ropes and then stretches his sweaty aching body with a standing surfboard, taunting him to scream for him. Alexi must be testing is own will when he retorts Ďjust do it some moreí, almost as an act of defiance to Eli. Heís one stubborn Russian! Late in the round, Alexi does show some signs of fighting back when he catches Eli squarely in the chest with his size 11 boot, dropping the grappler to the mat. He starts his own attack on Eliís picture perfect 8-pack, bashing away as he straddles Eli on the mat. He then takes Eli over to the ropes, and laces his arms over the ropes and pulls them back, asking the blond haired boy Ďyou like that?í in his thick Russian accent, while Eliís abs are flexed to the max. Alexi is able to get in some licks on Eli, even lifting him up by his feet and spinning him around the ring like a rag doll, before flinging him to the mat. But, that only infuriates the smaller grappler, and once he turns the momentum he goes for the kill. Eli begins a ferocious attack before finishing him off by picking the muscular Russian up and then dropping him down over his knee into a backbreaker that has him stretched and vulnerable, until he cries out a first round submission. Eli proclaims his dominance in round one screaming out Ďyou donít mess with me!í as he flexes his ripped body over his fallen opponent.
Round two starts with Eli back on the attack, and saying Ďalright, itís time to end thisí as he senses heís not going to be seriously challenged by Alexi in this match. The smaller Eli remains on the attack, pounding away on Alexiís beefy pec muscles, and tossing him around the ring at will. He stretches Alexiís formidable physique out on full display with a bow and arrow hold that has him wincing in pain, and Eli saying Ď for all those muscles, thereís nothing really special about you maní. As the sweat continues to glisten off of both of their fine-tuned bodies, Eli continues dishing out the punishment. He applies a leg stretch on Alexiís lanky legs, which nearly snap his hamstring and rip his crotch apart. As Alexiís suffers on the mat, Eli even admits Ďthis is getting boring, I like people who fight backí, before a flying leg drop across Alexiís chest. Eli has his way with the Russian rookie again in this round, and is so confident about victory, he evens pauses for a moment to style his blond hair before dropping an elbow on his opponentís powerfully built chest. Alexi is able to mount a short comeback, picking the lightweight up in a reverse bear hug and wailing him around the ring, even gets some good shots into Eliís ripped abs when he has him backed up into the corner turnbuckle, but this match is pretty much a one sided squash with Eli in total control. It isnít long before Eli is back on the attack, punishing Alexiís legs before setting him up for a tight figure-four leg lock that has Alexi trying to endure the pain before yelling out heís done and tapping out a submission to end round two and the match. Eli chalks up his first victory here at Rock Hard, and leaves a heap of Russian rookie wreckage withering on the mat, as he flexes a double bicep pose over his badly beaten opponent. A dominant performance by Eli!
