The Nature Boy “WOOOO” was brilliant in a complete game victory over the first place Brotherhood 4-1.
Brotherhood starting pitcher Dean Ambrose was brilliant himself early on in this game allowing only one hit through the first 4 innings. Brotherhood had the lead early on in this game when Apollo Crews led off the bottom of the third inning with an HR off Flair. But after that Flair never had a tense moment in the game.
In the top of the sixth inning, Legendary started to get rolling offensively. Bubba Ray scored on an RBI single by Shawn Michaels. Hacksaw Jim Duggan led off the top of the seventh inning with an HR. Michaels led off the eighth inning with a walk and stole second. Edge drove him in with an RBI double. In the top of the ninth inning, Michaels again was in the middle of things hitting a single and scored on a bases-loaded walk to Duggan to close out the scoring for the night.
But Flair only needed two runs. Flair allowed seven baserunners and struck out nine as Legendary knocked off the first place team. “Flair was brilliant,” said Michael Hayes. “You can’t pitch any better than that.”
Tomorrow’s starters are Bret Hart (2-0) vs Seth Rollins (1-1).
