In the finals of the 2017 Perth Classic it was ‘The Whole F’n Show’ Rob Van Dam taking on The Shark! With the Perth Classic trophy sitting ringside the AAW audience were treated to another epic encounter. After enduring one of the most violent encounters in AAW history earlier in the night, Rob Van Dam entered the contest taped, strapped, and bandaged together after splitting his head wide open in the Semi-Finals. The Shark, who is no stranger to taking on former WWE superstars, even former WWE Champions for that matter, made no compensations and the two men through everything at the other.
It didn’t take long for RVD’s wound to reopen and The Shark, smelling blood in the water so-to-speak, went on the attack. Van Dam, never one to be kept down pulled out all the stops, bringing his educated feet into play, knocking The Shark unconscious not once, but twice with spinning heel kicks.
In the end, Van Dam bled profusely and The Shark’s eye blackened and swelled, but it was the Five Star Frogsplash that secured the win and the inaugural Perth Classic for Rob..Van..Dam!
