We are back with the thirty third edition of The Hardcore Files. With Raven regaining his championship against Al Snow last time, he has another challenge ahead of him tonight when he takes on Hardcore Holly on SmackDown! So, let’s get into it.
Date: February 8, 2001
Watch: WWE Network
Raven as usual, brought a shopping cart full of weapons to the ring. He also brought a trash can that had legit trash in it. Right when Hardcore Holly went to get in the ring, he was sprayed with a fire extinguisher. Then, he dodged a chair shot and we saw the classic “chair to the rope then back into your own head” trick on Raven. Pretty quick back and forth match here once things for going. Raven had a bit of the upper hand but once he put his attention on Molly Holly, Hardcore Holly came back with a flurry of trash can lid shots, and dominated the rest of the match. Ravens accomplice who wears a ninja suit tried to sneak in, but Molly stopped her. Hardcore Holly picked up the win with a brain buster. The new Hardcore Champion; Hardcore Holly!
After the match, Molly Holly tried to unmask the ninja girl, but Raven stopped her. Hardcore Holly got involved and threw Raven back into the ring, giving time for the girl to regain momentum, which led her to smashing a trash can lid over Molly’s head, then breaking a 2×4 over Hardcore Holly’s back. Raven then pinned Holly to regain the Hardcore Championship. The new champion; Raven.
I’m so happy to be back with more of these. I was on a bit of a hiatus due to the WWE Network not having certain content. But, now that they’ve added more shows, we’re back in business! The match was a fun one to come back to, though it was short, it was still enjoyable. Now that we’re back, come back tomorrow for more of The Hardcore Files!
