Time for another two FRONTIER debutants as these two men are out to prove a point here in Bournemouth. Both men refused the Code of Respect and the match starts. Hawthorne picks up Rose and drives him into the corner. He goes for a forearm but Rose rolls out and hits a hard right kick. He hits three more kicks but Hawthorne stops that with a BIG lariat. Rose is sent into the corner. He brings his knees up but Hawthorne catches them, spins Rose around, so his legs are draped over the middle rope, and hits a hard chop and a thunderous kick. Hawthorne finishes that with a Fisherman suplex from out of the corner.

Both men on the apron and Hawthorne delivers some sick looking chops. Rose back with three kicks but Hawthorne with more chops. Rose clotheslines Hawthorne back into the ring. Hawthorne flips back up and nails Rose, taking him down. Hawthorne heads outside, grabs Rose by the legs and catapults him head first into the metal barriers between the ringside area and the audience. That was nasty!

Rose fights back with more kicks. Rose hits a running knee that shakes up Hawthorne. Rose with a Suicide cutter and gets a two count. Great turnaround from Jackson Rose!

Both men tore into each other verbally over the past few weeks, and today they really tore into each other physically too. A great display from both men, I think both will do well here in FRONTIER.
