Match 5: Chris Masters + Drew McIntyre vs. Kassius Ohno + Shelton Benjamin
We return from commercial and Kassius Ohno is making his way into the ring, and the match is about to begin. Kassius Ohno and Drew McIntyre start in the ring.
McIntyre goes for a punch to the gut and then Irish whips Ohno into the turnbuckle. McIntyre attempts to clothesline Kassius but the former ROH star throws his leg up and lands a big boot on the Sinister Scotsman.
McIntyre gets up and the two begin to exchange blows to the head. Ohno hits a heavy punch to McIntyre’s forehead, which knocks him out. Ohno raises him up and hits a belly-to-belly suplex.
Ohno tags in Shelton Benjamin. Shelton starts to clean house. He runs across the ring, runs on McIntyre’s body and jumps into a spinning kick on Chris Masters. It gets an amazing mark from the Philadelphia crowd, who have seen quite a show so far.
Shelton jumps to the top turnbuckle and goes for a elbow drop on McIntyre, which he hits. He pins McIntyre: 1…2...kick out! Shelton waits for McIntyre to get up and then goes for a Saito suplex, but McIntyre reverses it.
Shelton gets a spinning kick and then lands a rolling thunder. He tries to cover McIntyre up, but Masters runs in and completely stomps all over Shelton.
Masters starts taking advantage of a good situation: he lands a big boot on Shelton and then lands a spinebuster right from the clothesline.
Masters attempts to lock in his on-ground Master lock (you know, the one that is basically a Camel Clutch that I created a few weeks ago). Shelton Benjamin looks ready to tap out, but his leg somehow reaches the rope.
Chris Masters gets off but when Shelton gets up he hits an inverted atomic drop. Just before Shelton falls down, he hits a double axe handle. He pins Shelton: 1…2…kick out!
Masters cannot believe it, so decides to tag himself out. Drew McIntyre comes in, waits for Shelton Benjamin to get up and goes for the Future Shock DDT. Shelton does an insane reversal, using his strong base to flip himself over the DDT, where he hits a jump kick.
He makes the hot tag to Kassius Ohno. Ohno gets ready to clean house. He delivers a clothesline to McIntyre and then hits a dropkick on Chris Masters. Masters gets up and steps in, without tagging McIntyre. The two start to exchange rights but the ref reprimands Masters, saying he is not the legal man.
McIntyre comes from behind and low blows him. He covers Ohno up. 1…2…3! Masters and McIntyre celebrate in the ring while Benjamin tends to Ohno.
All of a sudden, Vince McMahon’s music goes off:
Vince McMahon: “Cut the music! This match is over, but what the ref didn’t see is McIntyre low-blowed Kassius. So I want this match restarted. Ring the damn bell!”
McMahon walks out of the ring and the bell rings.
Ohno tags in Benjamin, who lands a devastating T-Bone suplex on McIntyre. He walks over to Masters and delivers a superkick for good measure. He pins McIntyre: 1…2…3!
Ohno and Benjamin hold their hands up high and celebrate. Next up we have Vladimir Kozlov with Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett.
Time of Contest: 11:20 + 0:27
