For today’s Countdown To WrestleMania match, we are traveling to WrestleMania XX which took place from Madison Square Garden for the third time in WrestleMania history (the fifth overall to be held in the New York Area). I chose the fatal four way tag team match because one of the competitors from the tag team champions Too Cool in Rikishi is getting inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame. Too Cool which is rounded out by Scotty 2 Hotty took on The APA (Bradshaw and Farooq), The Basham Brothers (Doug and Danny Basham), and The World’s Greatest Tag Team (Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin) in a fatal four way match for the WWE Tag Team Titles. The dangerous thing about matches like this is that you don’t have to be pinned in order to lose your titles and any man can tag in at any time.
Bradshaw and Shelton Benjamin started out the match and Benjamin tried to use his speed and agility to his advantage, but Bradshaw played the size game and won. Dougy Basham would tag out Bradshaw and he worked on Shelton as he and his partner kept the advantage going. Eventually in the match, Scotty would end up in the ring with Charlie Haas where he showed off his dance skills after a move, but he showboated too much as Benjamin was able to help gain the advantage back for his team. Eventually everyone would try and isolate Scotty from Rikishi, but he was able to make the tag and all hell broke loose as he started clearing house. After he was able to get everyone out of the ring whether it by stinkface or a Samoan drop, he found Dougy Basham and he delivered the sumo drop for the 1-2-3. Congratulations to Rikishi on making it into the WWE Hall Of Fame, I’m sure your family is proud.
