Tanner¬ís in the gym pumping out some dumbbell curls as he gets ready for his upcoming match against fellow rookie Rex, his arms bulging bigger with each rep. Rex saunters around the corner and sees that his opponent is getting his pump on. Both of these guys are sporting their superhero t-shirts; Tanner believing he¬ís a Hulk and Rex looking like an Iron Man. Both of these guys have spectacular physiques, although somewhat different. Tanner showcases that lean, ripped muscled body, while Rex highlights a thicker, denser muscle with shredded abs. There¬ís something for everyone in this match up! But, both of these wrestlers have yet to earn a victory in their first two matches; Tanner¬ís muscles have suffered severe beatings against veterans Bruce and Austin, while bad boy Ethan owned Rex¬ís muscles in straight falls and fellow rookie Jax Brewer won the battle of the tag team tryouts by ultimately using his raw power advantage to squeak out a win. Thus, one of these two muscle boys is sure to chalk up their first victory today. Of course egos are involved when it comes to lifting weights and sure enough these two get into a short dumbbell competition before the match begins, each one trying to out-pump the other as their biceps swell and veins pop. No clear winner is decided, but it¬ís clear that Tanner will be the aggressor in round one since he gains the early control forcing Rex back into the corner turnbuckle. He immediately targets Rex¬ís prized abs, then whips him into the opposite turnbuckle and continues to beat on the MMA fighter¬ís midsection. Once Tanner softens Rex¬ís core a bit he turns his attention to his powerful legs. He floors Rex with a kick to the knee, then throws on an arm bar. The fitness fanatic is parlaying his quickness and muscle into total control of his fellow rookie. The blond fitness model tosses Rex around the ring, suplexes him through the air, stretches him out in a full nelson and grapevine combo, and ferociously chokes him over the ring rope. Rex seems somewhat bewildered and befuddled, not having a clue on how to turn the momentum around. Tanner is savoring every moment, even laughing at Rex¬ís misery as he has him clamped tight in a powerful camel clutch. After he¬ís done making Rex suffer, he throws him face first into the turnbuckle and follows up with a forearm shiver to the small of his back. This sets Rex up to be finished off. Tanner pulls him out to the center of the ring, then places his muscled body into a high arching, backbreaking crab hold and cranks up the pain. Rex has no way to escape and is compelled to scream out ¬ĎI give¬í to end his agony. Total domination in round one as Tanner kneels on Rex¬ís abs, flexes a double bicep and commands his opponent to look at his arms as he flexes in conquest.
At the beginning of round two Rex is trying to stretch the pain out of his back and Tanner is grinning from ear to ear with delight as he asks ¬Ďhow¬ís that back feeling?¬í Rex replies he¬ís had worse but that¬ís hard to imagine. Tanner slyly offers to shake hands to start this round, and Rex falls for it. Tanner instead delivers several shots to the MMA fighter¬ís ripped abs, then lifts him into a standing full nelson. But when the blond doesn¬ít follow up with another hold, Rex is able to connect with his boot to Tanner¬ís ripped 8-pack and floor him. Finally, Rex is showing some offense! He sends Tanner across the ring and into a ripping clothesline, returns to bashing his ripped 8-pack as he straddles the teen fitness model on the mat, applies some of his MMA techniques, and then turns up the pain with a back breaking camel clutch. Rex starts pouring it on, telling Tanner he¬ís got one round and that¬ís all he¬ís going to get as he drags him to his feet with a fist full of hair. Rex whips him across the ring to deliver another boot to the fitness model¬ís gut that has him reeling. Rex is in control now and he likes it! He continues to rule the action; punishing Tanner¬ís muscles with a variety of MMA holds, nearly submitting him in a rear naked choke hold, stretching his tight, lean muscled body out in a bow and arrow, all the while connecting with jabs and stomps to Tanner¬ís sweaty abs. Rex hoists him up into a front facing bear hug, weakening his body and back in anticipation of a submission. Tanner¬ís able to withstand the pain of the bear hug, but he won¬ít be able to withstand the torture of what Rex has in mind next. He laces Tanner¬ís lean muscles through the ring ropes, wraps his massive thighs around his waist and yanks back on his arms until Tanner¬ís glistening muscles are stretched and strained to the limit. Tanner cries out a submission to end the cruelty, then Rex drags his lifeless body to the center of the ring and proudly poses his sweat soaked muscles in triumph of round two. With this match all tied at one round a piece it all comes down to the third and final round. Both of these rookies show a dark side of their persona in an effort to chalk up their first victory in this blockbuster battle, while the loser is mistreated and persecuted in a fantastic finishing hold you just to have to see!
