A seismic shift has been brewing for the last few months within the Rock Hard ranks, with the talk around the locker room being Austin has been disappointed in his tag team partner Jakeís recent performances in his singles matches. Seeing him lose his last three matches to Ethan, Nick, and Zack, Austinís been wondering if Jake still has the edge, and thinking maybe itís time to make a change? He was impressed with the teenage muscle boy Brodieís debut match victory against fan favorite Josh Steel, and thought he could be a Jake protťgť. So, Austin approached Brodie about the idea, and Brodie was ecstatic with the thought of teaming up with big, brawny tactician and felt he could surely learn a thing or two from the ring veteran. Jake has no idea heís been replaced by the teen muscle boy, and thereís no telling how this will impact his friendship and partnership with Austin, but something tells you Jake wonít be happy. Austin brings his new tag team partner to the ring to face the two fitness model sensations, Will Stanley and Jason Kane. Brodie enters the ring looking like Ďa version of Jakeí sporting red square cuts and black boots, a la Jakeís standard gear, and packing just as much muscle, if not more than Austinís former tag team partner. Team Austin/Brodie pack a lot of muscle and are eager to mix it up with the two taller fitness models. Brodie starts things off against Jason in round one, and the more experienced Jason gains the upper hand on the teen bodybuilder with a headlock before hip tossing him to the mat. Jason makes him suffer in a standing surfboard stretching every muscle in the teenís fantastic physique. He chokes him over the bottom rope, then Jason and Will double team him in the corner working over his washboard abs. Jason then power slams him to the mat, and Brodie scurries to tag in Austin for some relief. The big, brawny Austin comes in and takes charge, going to work on Jasonís tall, lean fitness model body. After getting double teamed and ab bashed in his opponent's corner, Jason is able to make his way over to tag in his partner. Will climbs thru the ropes and immediately hoists the experienced tactician up over his shoulder into a backbreaker which inflicts serious pain on Austin. Will, determined to make Coop pay for the pain and suffering he inflicted on him in his debut match, places Coop in a series of joint wrenching holds meant to sap the energy out of the big man. Austin eventually is able to crawl over to his corner and tag in Brodie. The teen bodybuilder rookie surprisingly is able to come in and whip the brit boy across the ring and catch him with a clothesline, sending him to the mat. In a display or teen testosterone and muscle, Brodie drags him to his feet, power slams him to the mat, then stretches his body with a grapevine and full nelson that has Will throbbing on the mat. As the two teams battle for supremacy in round one, in the end itís Austin and Jason in the ring to decide round one. Austin rules Jason in the final minutes of round one, lifting him up over his shoulder into a torture rack, bending his lean muscular body over his broad shoulders before dropping him to the mat. Coop then places the fitness model into a head scissors, while bashing away at Jasonís impressive abs. Coop senses Jasonís had enough, and picks him up into a crucifix, instructing Brodie to lace Jasonís legs thru the ropes and Coop grabs his ankles to really stretch the fitness model out. With Jasonís ripped fitness physique on full display, Brodie starts pounding away at his abs until Jason canít take it any longer and he begs for the to stop, while crying out a submission. Round one goes to Austin and Brodie as Coop steps on Jasonís chest and proclaims the triumph.
In round two, Coop takes this opportunity use this round as a teaching moment for his rookie bodybuilder partner. Austin opens the round against Jason, immediately takes him down to the mat, then instructs Brodie to climb thru the ropes and Ďget at himí. Brodie takes the instruction and scoops Jason up and slams him to the mat, follows that up with an elbow drop to his chiseled chest, and then inflicts pain on Jasonís lean, muscular body with an arm bar and a head scissors, tormenting his opponent by doing sit ups while he has Jasonís head squeezed between his massive, muscular thighs. Brodie has his way with Jason, until Jason is able to tag out to Will. Will comes in a rage of fury taking control of the muscle boy, mocking him by placing him in a head scissors and doing sit ups of his own, pretty much saying in your face boy! As the sweat glistens off of all four of these fine-tuned, muscled physiques, the brit maintains control over Brodie until heís able to tag in Austin. Coop comes in and wins a test of strength over Will, then pounds and stomps away at his body, softening him up for Brodie to re-enter the ring. Will is ready though, and plants the teen bodybuilder on his back with a double leg takedown, then lifts him up over his head, slams him to the mat, then locks on a serious arm par that has Brodie squirming in some serious pain. Will senses the muscle boy is ripe for the taking, so he lifts him into a standing full nelson, parades him around the ring, then hoists the teenís muscular body up across his shoulders and spins him around in the ring until Brodie cries out ĎIím doneí and submits in round two. Coop looks on in despair, shaking his head, and wondering if he made the right choice for a new tag team partner? This match all comes down to a third and final round, will the two lean, muscular fitness models maintain their momentum and work on the weaker link Brodie, or can Coop rally his teen bodybuilder partner, and take out Will and Jason to earn their first victory as new tag team partners and make a statement to the Rock Hard roster?
