Diesel up on the apron...Razor punches him...then back to HBK then back to Diesel...Irish whip and Razor hits Diesel's big boot. 1...2...3. That's all she wrote.
Absolutely solid match apart from the ending (although I can see why they did it). I was thoroughly entertained throughout and this was my only my second time watching it.
*** 1/2 - *** 3/4.
Go out and watch it.
