GENIUS, TAKES A TUMBLE TO THE OUTSIDE. AND KOKO REMAINS IN THE RING. THE GENIUS HOLDING HIS MOUTH, AS YOU CAN SEE. AND IT’S APPARENT THAT IF HE WANTS TO DICTATE THE PACE, KOKO IS GOING TO ALLOW THAT. ANY CHANCE THAT KOKO HAS A CHANCE TO GET IN A SHOT, HE’S GOING TO TAKE THE ADVANTAGE.>>I’LL TELL YOU, THIS GENIUS MIGHT HAVE TO GO SEE DOC JONES IN THE MORNING TO GET A LITTLE DENTAL WORK DONE. THAT WAS CLOSE.>>THE KNEE AND HAND TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD. DUCK DOWN. THE GENIUS WAITING ON HIM. KOKO WAITING ON HIM. RIGHT TO THE HEAD. BIG HEAD BUTT. GENIUS ON THE OUTSIDE AGAIN.■>>ALL THEM FANCY MOVES DON’T MEAN MUCH NOW, DO THEY, TONY?>>THEY REALLY DON’T. ALL THE CARTWHEELS AND PRANCING AROUND THE RING MEAN NOTHING.>>THESE FOLKS IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN AND ABSOLUTELY LOVELY. THEY HAVE SEEN THAT GENIUS GET■ EXACT WHAT THEY WANT HIM TO GET, A GOOD THUMPING.>>GENIUS STILL WALKING AROUND. KOKO BEING ADMONISHED BY THE REFEREE TO STAND BACK. KOKO IS BASICALLY LETTING THE GENIUS HAVE HIS WAY ON THE OUTSIDE BECAUSE SOONER OR LATER THE GENIUS, UNLESS HE WANTS TO LOSE THE MATCH EARLY, WILL HAVE TO COME BACK IN. I THINK KOKO IS DOING THE RIGHT THING.>>YOU’RE EXACTLY RIGHT. I’LL TELL YOU SOMETHING ELSE, TONY. THIS CROWD FACTOR HERE, IF KOKO GETS PUMPED UP AND THESE PEOPLE GET BEHIND HIM LIKE THEY ARE FIXING TO DO, THIS GENIUS COULD BE SHORT BUSINESS THERE.>>AND THE GENIUS KNOWS THAT, TOO.>>THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL PSYCHOLOGY. THIS IS SOME STRANGE PSYCHOLOGY.>>I DON’T THINK I’VE EVER SEEN HIM GIVE US THE MUSCULAR POSE HERE EITHER. KOKO BETTER BE CAREFUL HERE. THE GENIUS HAS HAD A CHANCE NOW TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HE WANTS TO DO. AND MORE NOT, IT’S GOING TO BE UP TO NO GOOD. THE TEST OF STRENGTH AND KOKO B. WARE HAS A LOT OF STRENGTH, HILLBILLY.>>HE SURE DOES. THE GENIUS HAS USED HIS BRAIN SO TO SPEAK AND GOT OUTSIDE THE BRAIN WHEN IT GOT A LITTLE HOT. COLLECTED HIMSELF AND GOT HIMSELF TOGETHER. NOW HE’S TAKING IT TO THIS BIRDMAN. HERE COMES THIS CROWD, TONY.>>HERE THEY COME, TRYING TO RALLY BEHIND KOKO B. WARE AS THE GENIUS HAS IT CLAMPED ON. HERE HE COMES. TALK ABOUT THE UPPER BODY STRENGTH. IT TAKES A LOT OF NOT ONLY UPPER BODY STRENGTH IN THE CHEST, BUT THE ARMS. A LOT OF DETERMINATION TO TRY TO PUSH UP. HE’S REALLY AT A DISADVANTAGE HERE.>>HE DEFINITELY IS. BUT HE’S HOLDING HIS OWN. HE’S TRYG TO MAKE A COMEBACK. HE’S BACK TO HIS FEET. IF HE CAN GET THAT LEVERAGE SWITCHED, HE’LL HAVE HIM, TONY.>>PUSHING UP WITH THE LEGS. FORCING THE GENIUS BACK. LOOK AT THIS MOVE. WHIPS HIM OUT FROM THE SIDE. AND THE FANS ARE UP.>>GIGANTIC DROP KICK. YOU CAN TURN OUT THE KITCHEN NOW, BOYS. HE’S GOT THE FIRE ON NOW. [LAUGHTER]>>THAT FAN IS NOT GOING TO HELP HIM AT ALL. THE GENIUS APPEARED TO LOOK FOR HELP AT THE RINGSIDE FANS HERE AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. AND HE GOT NO HELP AT ALL. SO NOW HE’S GOING TO JUST WALK AROUND THE RING AGAIN AND ONCE AGAIN TRYING TO SLOW THINGS DOWN.>>I DON’T KNOW THE GENIUS’ PROBLEM IS. BUT OTHER THAN KOKO B. WARE RIGHT NOW, YOU KNOW, THE GUY WAS FROM THE SHORES OF GITCHIGUMI, HIS POETRY AIN’T GOING TO HELP HIM. STAY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE. WATCH THIS. WE’LL BE BACK IN A SECOND.>>INTO THE TURNBUCKLE. AND THE FANS COUNTING RIGHT ALONG WITH KOKO. AND GENIUS RIGHT NOW IS IN LA-LA LAND.>>THERE ONCE WAS A RAVEN. THERE WAS A GENIUS FROM NANTUCKET. AND WHEN WE COME BACK HERE, NOW WE’RE GOING TO SEE THE GENIUS AND KOKO B. WARE. THE GENIUS DOING THE SPLITS AND ALL THEM CARTWHEELS. I WISH HE’D CARTWHEEL WHEN I WAS WRESTLING HIM. BAM! WATCH THIS ONE.>>THE FANS COUNTING RIGHT ALONG WITH KOKO. AND GENIUS RIGHT NOW IS IN LA-LA LAND. NOW, KOKO DOING THE RIGHT THING. GOING RIGHT AFTER HIM.>>EXACTLY. HE’S NOT STOPPING FOR A SECOND.>>INTO THE CORNER AND NOBODY THERE.>>OH, NO.>>WELL, NOW THAT WAS A GOOD MOVE BY THE GENIUS. YOU HAVE TO GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR THAT. HE TOOK A LITTLE SIDESTEP OUT OF THE WAY. AND THAT’S ALL IT TOOK, KNOWING THAT KOKO WAS RIGHT BEHIND HIM.>>YOU KNOW, HE PLAYED THAT THING JUST LIKE A PRO THERE BECAUSE HE SAT THERE AND HE LULLED KOKO INTO THINKING HE WAS OUT. I’LL TELL YOU ONE THING. HE’S A CUNNING WRESTLER. HE’S AS WILEY AS A FOX IN THERE, THAT GENIUS.>>HE REALLY IS, HILLBILLY. AND NOW A SOCK RIGHT TO THE SIDE.>>HE MIGHT DANCE AROUND THERE LIKE A LITTLE SISSY. I’LL TELL YOU, WHEN HE GETS DOWN, HE’LL KICK YOUR HEAD RIGHT OFF YOUR SHOULDERS.>>THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE’S TRYING TO DO RIGHT NOW. PULLING ON THE TOP ROPE AND RIGHT ON TO THE ARM.>>HE’S WORKING ON THIS BIRDMAN. I’LL TELL YOU.>>AND HAS HIM IN TROUBLE. AND NOTICE HOW HE’S WORKING NOW ON THAT LEFT ARM. AND IT WOULD APPEAR TO ME THAT MAYBE THE BETTER PLACE — I’M NOT TRYING TO CONTRADICT HIS STRATEGY. THAT IS MAYBE TO WORK ON THOSE LEGS BECAUSE KOKO HAS A LOT OF LEG STRENGTH AND IS A HIGH FLYER. YOU HAVE SEEN SOME GREAT DROP KICKS SO FAR, BUT HE WANTS TO WORKTHE ARM HERE.>>TONY, HE RAN INTO THAT TURNBUCKLE. I THINK THAT GENIUS IS JUMPING ON THERE. HE SAW THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET A LITTLE ADVANTAGE ON HIM AND HE’S NOT GOING TO LET UP FOR ONE SECOND. LOOK AT THAT HOLD. I’LL TELL YOU, BUDDY, THAT’S PAINFUL.>>THAT WAS A GOOD POINT, ESPECIALLY AFTER HE HAS RUN THAT SHOULDER NOW INTO THE ST. APPARENTLY FEELING THIS IS A WEAK POINT. SENDING HIM RIGHT DOWN TO THE MAT. SO THE GENIUS KEEPS THE PRESSURE ON WITH THE WRIST LOCK, TWISTING ON KOKO B. WARE. ONCE KOKO B. WARE IS OFF HIS FEET, HE’S REALLY AT A DISADVANTAGE. CAN’T MOVE AROUND THE RING. THE CHANT OF KOKO.>>HERE IT COMES. [FANS CHANTING]>>KOKO CAN HEAR IT. NO QUESTION.>>I’VE BEEN HERE MANY TIMES. IF THIS CROWD CAN’T GET YOU PUMPED UP, SON, YOU NEED TO GO TO THE MORGUE BECAUSE YOU’RE DEAD. ONCE THEY GET BEHIND YOU JUST RIGHT, IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING LEFT IN YOU, IT’S GOING TO COME TO THE TOP.>>THE STOMP. CONTINUING TO WORK ON THE SHOULDER.>>GOT TO GIVE HIM CREDIT, BROTHER. HE’S RIGHT ON HIM.>>STRETCHING THE RULES A LITTLE BIT HERE. HE WRAPPED THAT ARM AROUND THAT STEEL SAFETY RAIL ON THE OUTSIDE AND GAVE THAT RAIL A KICK. SOME ARE MORE PRANCING TO THE CHORUS OF BOOS. KOKO ALLOWED TO MAYBE SHAKE THIS ONE OFF.>>AND THAT GENIUS IS ALWAYS MAKING SURE HE BEATS THAT COUNT. YOU KNOW THAT, TONY.>>GREAT RING PRESENCE AND RING AWARENESS OF THE GENIUS.>>YES, YES. DEFINITELY THE STRANGEST STYLE IN PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING. YOU HAVE TO GIVE THE GUY CREDIT.>>HE IS STOMPING RIGHT ON KOKO B. WARE. WALKS AWAY AS THE REFEREE PUSHES HIM BACK.>>OH, MY.>>HE TOOK A SWAT AT FRANKIE, DIDN’T HE?>>YES. HE WENT OVER AND MADE A GESTURE TOWARD THAT BIRD.>>THAT BIRD CAN CLIP YOUR FINGER OFF IF YOU GET TOO CLOSE.>>THAT WOULD BE A FUNNY THING, WOULDN’T IT? HMMM HMMM.>>STRADDLES HIM. STILL WITH THE ARM BAR RIGHT ON THE SHOULDER. PRESSING FIRMLY DOWN ON THE SHOULDER. AND APPARENTLY HE HIT THAT RING POST VERY HARD. AND KOKO IS IN BAD SHAPE RIGHT NOW. BUT HE IS COME BACK WITH THE FANS CLAPPING. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] GOOD WHIP THAT TIME TO DRAG HIM OUT. BUT THE GENIUS STAYS RIGHT ON HIM.>>THIS GUY IS JUST LIKE A BULL. HE’S A PITBULL IN THAT RING, I’LL TELL YOU. EVERYTHING THAT HE DON’T DO AND EVERYTHING THAT HE DON’T LOOK LIKE, HE’S RIGHT ON HIM. UNBELIEVABLE.>>FRANKIE CONCENTRATING. YOU SAW MOMENTARILY ON WHAT’S GOING ON. THE BIRDMAN KOKO B. WARE NOT HAVING A GOOD GO OF IT RIGHT HERE, BUT HE IS WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS. BOY, HE HAS A LOT OF FIGHT IN HIM.>>THAT SHOULDER IS AS NUMB AS HE CAN GET. HE CAN’T FEEL NOTHING IN THAT SHOULDER. HE CAN HARDLY RAISE HIS ARM. THERE’S THAT BIRD.>>I THINK HE SEES SOMEONE WITH SOME POPCORN.>>FRANKIE IS NOT GETTING TOO EXCITED YET.>>A LOT OF CONFIDENCE IN HIM.>>HE’S NOT TOO CONCERNED YET, IS HE, TONY?>>NO, NOT AT ALL. KOKO TRYING TO COME UP HERE. PULLING ON THE HAIR. THE REFEREE SLAPS THE HAND AWAY. THE BIG HEAD BUTT. HE LEVELED HIM WITH THAT ONE.>>RIGHT BACK TO IT AGAIN GOES THIS GENIUS.>>BOY, HE IS RELENTLESS.>>HE MIGHT BE LOOKING A SUBMISSION HERE. I DON’T HARDLY NO IF HE WOULD GET IT ON KOKO.>>I DON’T THINK HE WOULD. COULD HE SUBMIT? THAT’S CERTAINLY SOMETHING THE GENIUS WOULD LIKE TO SEE RIGHT HERE. HE IS HOOKING THE ARM AND HE MAY JUST FALL STRAIGHT BACK HERE.>>OH, MY. I GUARANTEE YOU IF ANYTHING WAS WELL IN THERE AND IT’S NOT NOW AFTER THAT.>>THAT IS WORSE, HILLBILLY, THAN ANY TYPE OF HAMMERLOCK HE CAN PUT ON THERE BECAUSE THAT’S THE WHOLE BODY PULLING UP ON THAT ARM.>>ALL THE PRESSURE HE CAN PUT ON HIS ARM RIGHT NOW, HE DEFINITELY HAS SOME STRETCHED TENDONS AND MUSCLES IN THERE.■ THAT SHOULDER IS NUMB AS CAN BE. HERE’S A GOOD SHOT.>>USING THAT RIGHT ARM, THE GENIUS FINDS HIS MARK. NICELY APPLIED. BIG PICKUP AND A GREAT SLAM. GREAT MOVE BY THE GENIUS. NOW WHAT’S HE GOING TO DO? WE HAVE SEEN THE SOMERSAULT OFF THE ROPES. HE MAY FEEL LIKE IT’S TIME TO PIN THE MAN AND END THE MATCH.>>YES, HE’S GOING UP TOP.>>WASTING A LOT OF TIME, TOO. I THINK HE MISSED.>>YES, HE DID. KOKO ROLLED.>>HE ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY. THE GENIUS ACTUALLY HIT THE MAT WITH HIS BACK AND HE’S FEELING THE EFFECTS AS FRANKIE WATCHES ON. KOKO GETTING UP.>>HERE IT GOES NOW. LISTEN TO THIS CROWD.>>RIGHT HAND.>>GOOD SHOT FROM THE CENTER. THE CLOTHESLINE. YES.>>WHOA.>>THAT LEVELED THE GENIUS.>>AGAIN! SOME AUTHORITY IN THOSE BLOWS, HILLBILLY JIM.>>KATY BAR THE DOOR NOW.>>HE GOT HIM. BOTH MISSES TO THE CHIN. KOKO WITH THE HEAD BUTT.>>WHAT A HEAD BUTT.>>BOY, HE HAS COME ROARING BACK AFTER THAT SHOULDER HAD BEEN WORKED ON FOR SO LONG. THE GENIUS TIED UP. KOKO MISSED!>>OH, NO. THAT’S AN ERROR RIGHT THERE.>>THE GENIUS MOVED AND KOKO IS OUT. I THOUGHT THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN IT.>>TONY, HE CLOTHESLINED HIMSELF THERE. YOU’RE NOT EXPECTING THAT, SO THAT’S A PRETTY VICIOUS MANEUVER TO HIT. IF YOU CAN COME BACK AND MISS, IT NOT REALLY SURPRISED ME. BUT THAT IS A GOOD HEAD BUTT.>>THE HEAD BUTT PICKS UP THE GENIUS NOW BY THE HAIR. GETS HIM INTO THE NEUTRAL CORNER AND FOR THE RIDE TO THE OTHER SIDE. ONCE AGAIN, THE GENIUS JUST STEPS OUT OF THE WAY. THIS TIME ROLLS HIM UP. THE ONE, TWO. AND WE GOT A THREE. THE GENIUS SLYLY STEPPED OUT OF THE WAY, PICKED UP THE THREE-COUNT AND PINNED KOKO B. WARE. LET’S GET THE OFFICIAL WORD.>>HERE IS YOUR WINNER, THE GENIUS!>>WELL, KOKO DOING A LOT OF MOVING AROUND THE RING AND A TREMENDOUS MATCH I THINK YOU CAN SAY. BUT STILL THE GENIUS PREVAILS.>>TONY, FOR EVERYTHING YOU DON’T LIKE ABOUT THIS GUY, YOU HAVE TO GIVE HIM CREDIT. HE HAS A WEIRDAY AND WEIRD STYLE.>>HE WANTS TO TALK AGAIN FOR GOODNESS SAKES.>>OF COURSE.>>THE GENIUS WOULD LI
