Alex returns! It¬ís been a while since we¬íve seen Alex here at Rock Hard, and it¬ís exciting to see his return. He took some time off for personal events occurring in his life but now he¬ís back to re-stake his spot at the top of the roster. You would have to think he has his eye¬ís set on the King of the Ring belt, especially since he narrowly lost out in his match against Dash Decker in KOTR 2. But a lot has happened since that match. One big question; is Alex still the same old Alex? Has he kept himself in shape and does he have the stamina he¬ís had in the past. And, is he still the best trash talker on the roster?! Interestingly enough, in his first match back he¬ís up against another wrestler on the roster we haven¬ít seen in a while, tall, blond, muscle bound Chad. The lifeguard turned wrestler doesn¬ít have as much experience as Alex, but he does have a size and weight advantage on the cocky fratboy. This is going to be one intriguing match! So many unanswered questions! Round one begins with Alex in his black and blue trunks with black boots, Chad clad in red and black trunks, white boots, and sporting his shaggy blond hair. Both guys looking good enough to walk down any model runway, but who¬ís the prettiest? Chad asks Alex if he thinks he¬ís number 1, and of course Alex thinks he¬ís the best and tells him to check his record. They lock up in a test of strength and surprisingly Chad scores first. He ducks under and into a front facing bearhug, smartly using his size to his advantage. He throws the fratboy into the corner, bashes his abs, then chokes him over the rope while taunting him to submit. But it¬ís way too early for a veteran like Alex to submit, so the shaggy blond lifts him high over his head, slams him to the mat, stomps on his abs, then wraps his enormous thighs around the cocky boy¬ís waist and begins to squeeze hard. After he¬ís made Alex suffer in that hold for a while, he picks him up and drops him over his knee into an over the knee backbreaker. Chad is being more aggressive then we¬íve seen him in the past and it¬ís paying off. As Alex catches his breath on the mat, he asks¬í can you give me a second¬í and concedes ¬Ďyou¬íre better than I thought¬í. The lifeguard struts his stuff around the ring, even taking a moment to flex his picture-perfect bi¬ís. But his confidence costs him. Alex makes his way to his feet, and surprises the blond lifeguard with a scoop slam. Chad¬ís 205 pound body crashes to the mat with a thud, then Alex stomps him on the chest while he¬ís moaning in pain. The cocky fratboy then starts really going to work on the lifeguards prized body; he works him over in the corner, chokes him over the top rope and with a rear naked choke, then clobbers his chest while he straddles on top. Alex has shifted the momentum and he¬ís not letting up. He slams and suplexes Chad around the ring, and then places his hunky body in a bow and arrow and drives his black boot into the blond hunk¬ís lower back. Alex has the lifeguard trapped now and he¬ís not going to let up until he forces a submission. Chad resists the first onslaught, but when Alex cranks up the pressure a second time the shaggy blond cannot withstand the pain. He shouts out ¬ĎI give¬í to end the agony and round one.
Alex has a big smile on his face to start round two, asking Chad ¬Ďwhat happened to all that number one talk?¬í, and tell him he¬ís starting to sound like a cheerleader. The two tie up and Alex takes control, forcing Chad into the corner turnbuckle and attacks his abs. He then lifts the big guy into a bearhug and then shoves him down to the mat. The cocky fratboy then proceeds to target Chad¬ís back; he walks over his back while on the mat, picks him up and slams him down tough, and connects with several stomps along the way. Alex continues to have his way with Chad, delivering several bitch slaps to his muscled pecs, and then choking him out with his hands while he¬ís straddled atop him on the mat. But just when it looks like Alex is going to end this match in two straight, Chad is able to gain a quick reversal. The hunky lifeguard proceeds to bash away on Alex¬ís abs, then flips him over into a boston crab. Chad begins to focus on destroying the fratboy¬ís back throughout the remainder of the round, and that¬ís not by mistake, turning the tables on his opponent. Ultimately, he heaves his smaller opponent around the mat inflicting immense pain until he decides to lift him up and drop him over his knee in a backbreaker. Alex¬ís back has taken a beating in this round, and the bigger Chad has imposed his will to the point that the fratboy quickly submits to end the beating. The blond lifeguard evens this match at one round a piece as he flexes in triumph. Will Chad be able to continue using his size and strength advantage to navigate the troubled waters and spoil the cocky fratboy¬ís return? Or can Alex regain the momentum and his special trash talking style that will lead him to another victory and a triumphant return?
