This forces the Caped Crusader out of the ring. Batman connects on a giant boot to a lifeless Yugi, who was motionless in the corner. Ghost Rider forces Yugi to take a breather outside. Batman goes for the first pin on Yugi. The King of Games kicks out at one. Batman lands a Springboard Plancha onto Yugi.

Ghost Rider goes for yet another pin on Yugi, who reentered the ring. It is just a one-count. Yugi lands a Styles Clash and rolls up Batman for the cover. Ring the bell, because the King of Games proves why he’s the King!

Batman is literally one of the best jobbers in M4gNation. Yugi is interesting because he seems to be borderline Thunder and Main Roster. Ghost Rider, though, deserves to be on Thunder, even if he looks super cool.


Killmonger vs. Leonidas
(TMN Tryout Match)


Killmonger comes out strong, landing a Scoop Slam on the King of the Spartans. He lands a beautiful Shining Wizard but misses a Splash from the top-rope. Leonidas responds with a Chokeslam Powerbomb onto the Wakandan warrior. Killmonger regains momentum. Leonidas; however, retaliates. Killmonger lands a Flying Elbowdrop.

It is not enough to break it. Killmonger connects on a Missile Dropkick. He sets the table up in the corner. Leonidas busts Killmonger open by tossing him face-first into the table. Leonidas steals the win by Powerbombing him through the table. The drama continues as Leonidas pats Killmonger on the back. He responds with a clubbing blow to knock Leonidas off his feet.


I gave this match an additional .25 only because of that heel-turn of an ending. Killmonger looked incredibly strong throughout the match. He didn’t have much of a defense though. He would probably do really well in the Atom Weight Division if he ever makes it to the Main Roster. It was a pretty average tables match. Nevertheless, Killmonger got my vote for a contract.
