The Future Stars of Wrestling (FSW) Championship Committee made it official and to no one’s surprise “The Problem” Sefa Fatu accepted the challenge from Hammerstone and will face him in a “Last Man Standing” Match at the FSW 10th Anniversary June 23rd. Fatu will be defending his FSW Nevada State Title against “The Business” in a rematch that we’ve waited for since MECCA IV. The first time these two stars met March 17 at Sam’s Town Live Hammerstone controlled the majority of the match but the young Champion dug deep, delivered a perfect Superkick and was close to getting the victory when Hammerstone took matters, or the belt rather, into his own hands and clocked the second generation star.
After Fatu was awarded an unsatisfying Disqualification victory the two grapplers have met multiple times in the ring since. Hammerstone drew from his Arizona home to bring Gabriel Gallo into the mix to face Fatu, and the son of Rikishi got the victory. Fatu and unexpected partner (and mortal Hammerstone enemy)Graves beat Hammer and Gallo in tag action last time they shared a ring at the FSW Arena, so the Champion has momentum.
That’s where Hammer sets his traps lulling his opponent into a false sense of security. This past Saturday the 602 day FSW Champion dismantled young prospect Hero Lu with a vicious “Nightmare Pendulum” on the big Samoan, and “The Business” has shown no respect for family history and made that clear with Fatu as well as the Hart’s in MLW and more recently the young Von Erich’s.
This is the biggest match of Fatu’s career. Hammerstone is more than a legitimate threat to win he’s the likely favorite. He’s won plenty of Title matches at FSW Casino shows and the brighter the spotlight the better. Fatu started slow at MECCA and can’t afford that again but has experience this time and should have a much clearer scouting report. This match will be terrific. It’s been the Best feud of the first Six Months and a “Last Man Standing” match fits great.
