The Extreme Educator then said the match would be contested under “Extreme enforcement of the rules.” Striker added “No gouging of the eyes, no pulling of the hair, no maneuvers off the top rope, and most importantly, no foul language.” He then grinned and wondered aloud “if Balls can wrestle under ‘Striker’s Rules’.”
The ECW original Balls Mahoney did just that, as he answered the teacher’s challenge. Mahoney was able to show the non-extreme side of his skills, and he had the crowd in Augusta firmly behind him. Balls surprised Striker as he scored the victory.
Mahoney had a different view as he told ECW.com “Striker underestimated me. I have an amateur background in wrestling, and he definitely didn’t do his homework on that one.”
