Doane v Albright
Ken Doane vs Brent Albright, 14 September (?) 2005 (Ohio Valley Wrestling)
Six-five Doane was the Ohio Valley TV champion, age 19, battling six-foot Albright (25 at the time) in a series of mean, sweaty matches that stretched from August to October. The teen hotly defended the title, and Albright (the former TV champ) is Doane's most persistent challenger. As the ringside commentators explain, Doane is eager to give Albright chance after chance at the prize no less to win Albright's respect than to defend the title. This contest gives us a speeding roulette wheel of heel tactics by both wrestlers (some more adept than others), a tornado of pain and payback that ultimately leaves both men wrung out and close to unconscious.
