WWE Payback 2014 results: Hornswoggle gets his head shaved after losing to El Torito

WWE Network

The WWE Payback "Kickoff" show on the WWE Network tonight (Sun., June 1, 2014) at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois, featured El Torito vs. Hornswoggle in a Mask vs. Hair match.

El Torito went for the cheap crowd support wearing red and white, attempting to make himself into a "Chicago Bull". He also had a shortened tail so the commentary team could talk about how amazed they were that it was growing back.

Yeah, that's how this started.

JBL was quick to call the bout a "mat classic" when El Torito executed an airplane spin and once he stopped, both guys bumped heads and fell over.

They went full comedy the rest of the way with the announcers predictably cracking jokes about the wrestlers being little people and how it wasn't a near fall, it was a 2/3rds count. They provided some entertainment with a series of splashes late in the match with 3MB and Los Matadores getting involved on the outside.

Then Hornswoggle hit a sit down powerbomb that got a near fall. He responded by freaking out and ripping El Torito's mask off only to reveal that he had another mask on underneath. So, really, he cheated but no one cared while JBL wondered if his real face is actually a mask.

He hit the Bullsault shortly after to get the pin. Then he proceeded to shave Hornswoggle's head right there in the aisle in a barber chair with all the right tools and everything.
