At this point everyone should have seen this match already, but if you still haven’t here is a couple more things you got to know before you watch KOTR5: Bruce Ballard vs Austin Cooper.
1. It’s a pretty close match-up.
And we expected nothing else. Just as he promised, Austin comes out with rage, ready to destroy Bruce once again and keep the title around his waist. However, Bruce has learned a lot since the first time they met for and Austin’s skills will be put to the test. Both guys dominate and both guys suffer, which makes this bout unpredictably exciting.
2. There’s every type of round you could ask for.
Austin dominating all of the time, Bruce dominating all of the time, both guys giving and taking it, holds, punches, kicks you name it. As most of RHW matches, you are for sure going to want to rewatch at least one of those rounds again and again.
3. Dash Decker is an issue throughout match.
Dash may not physically be part of this KOTR installment, but he’s impact definitely is. The references to the mighty bodybuilder are aplenty throughout the match. “Just like Dash: you can’t handle me. You guys had to jump me to handle me. That’s the only way you could beat me.” Will Bruce prove he doesn’t need the big guy on his corner to beat Austin?
4. One HOT hold will let you see a wrestler from another perspective.
In a moment not included here because you need to see it for yourself, one wrestler is forced to hang upside down on his opponent’s back as he is being stretched beyond his limits (just like it was promised!). All the vulnerability, agony and suffering while he’s being tortured makes it my favorite moment of the match. I’m telling you, you need to see it for yourself!
5. Beware: Mini-spoiler ahead!
Once again, all the action leads to ROUND 5! For the fourth time in KOTR history, the action goes on until the definitive round to decide who wins this match. Will vengeful Austin remain King? Or will Bruce become the first monarch of RHW’s new era? Go and find out now!
