The Grafter Rick Markus and Fantastic Matt Fox debuted in Morecambe on the same day at Rising Stars in December 2016.
Their fortunes were very different as Markus scored a huge debut win, while Fox fell victim to Danny Hope’s catwalk kick.
Since then, throughout 2017, both men are yet to taste victory.
Markus has taken every loss with humility and been determined to work harder than ever before to improve and get another win on his record. While Fox hasn’t let any defeat get to him, and is determined to prove to everyone how FANTASTIC he is despite the losses.
Matt Fox even started the Fantastic open challenge, where he challenged anyone on the Alpha Omega roster – who believes they are as fantastic as he is – to face him one on one.
At Morecambe Mayhem his challenge was answered by tag team champion Cyanide, who defeated Fox within seconds!
Matt Fox blamed the loss on his inability to prepare for Cyanide, and said that given more time, he’d prove how fantastic he is with a victory.
In response to this claim, Rick Markus stepped up to announce he is answering the next Matt Fox Fantastic Open Challenge in advance, and will be facing Matt Fox one on one at Vendetta. Markus is focused on getting back to winning ways, will Fox be the perfect opponent for this?
Will Fox be able to get his first victory in Morecambe now he has plenty of time to prepare, and against a man on a losing streak?
