Maxim Apollo vs Viktor Patrovsky
Both Max and Viktor both have the classic Russian bad boy attitude (complete with Russian accent) and the muscles to match. Viktor is the taller muscle boy but Max is a ROUGH pro wrestler who isn’t afraid to get stiff while taking the upper hand. Rough punching, sub holds, and power moves are all featured in this 50/50 back and forth match. Towards the end it looks like Max is getting the upper hand and he powerfully bearhugs Viktor and then stretches him out in an over the knee backbreaker. But once the lion is awakened in Viktor he takes over and WAILS on Max and then finishes him with a long, slow choke hold.
