TAG TEAM CHALLENGE
The Street Gang Hooligans (‘AK47’ Alex Kingston & Logan Grey) vs Kiel Steria & David Nero
WHY SGH WILL WIN: The Street Gang Hooligans are, for my money, the best tag team in Australia right now. Every time they team up, they put forward a genuine highlight-filled Match of the Night contender and never cease to amaze with their incredible offence and undeniable toughness. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Logan Grey walk back through the curtain without some kind of injury. Both of these guys are ex-EPW Champions and it feels only a matter of time before they add some tag team gold to their already packed resumes. I think they’ll be too good for Steria and Nero, and will pick up a spectacular victory.
WHY STERIA/NERO WILL WIN: These guys are both freaks of nature. Both have the agility of men half their size and can do things in the ring you need to see to believe. Nero is coming back from a neck injury suffered at the PROGRESS x EPW show, only time will tell how that plays on the night. This is the first time these two have teamed up and it will be interesting to see how they go. I think the experience and skill factor both favour SGH so they’ll be hard-pressed to score a win. That being said, you can never rule these two guys out. Both of them have the explosive offence capable of scoring a quick victory at any stage of a match, so don’t be too shocked if they walk away with a massive, massive victory, which would change the landscape of the EPW Tag division.
ODDS: SGH $1.50 / Steria & Nero $3.20
PREDICTION: Don’t blink. This match will be bell to bell excitement and has a genuine shot at being the Match of the Night on what is a super stacked card. There are 3 ex-EPW Champions in this match, which tells you the quality of the individuals competing. However, I think The Street Gang Hooligans experience as a tag team will get the final say.
RESULT: Grey to pin Nero in 12 minutes
