Dean Hill comes walking down the hall and is approached by "Mr. Pec-tacular" (tm) Jessie Godderz, who is not wearing his pink bunny suit. Godderz condescendingly tries to talk Dean out of their match tonight by implying that Dean has everything to lose. Dean just ignores him and walks into a room, slamming the door in Godderz' face.
A clip from earlier today is shown where "Triple R Superstar" Randy Royal is entering the building but is intercepted by OUR OVW Senior Official Chris Sharpe, who informs Royal that OUR OVW Owner Danny Davis has suspended him! Sharpe tells Royal that Tony Gunn is just now getting out of the hospital after yet another attack by Royal last week and further warns him that if Davis sees him on the premises, he will be released from OVW!
Off to the announce table with Dean and "The Rocky Mountain Mouth" Michael Titus. We are told that "4-Time Emmy Winning Anchorman" Gilbert Corsey is on assignment. Dean says that there will be a huge announcement later concerning the beautiful ladies of OVW!
Match #1: "Best Rudy Ever" Rudy Switchblade vs OUR OVW TV Champion Flash Flanagan (w/fellow Marauders Shiloh Jonze, Raul Lamotta, & Joe Coleman)
If you chose "blue" in the "Color of Flash's Kendo Stick" pool, you would be a winner! Josh Ashcraft is OUR OVW Official for this match (doesn't anyone introduce refs anymore?). Rudy slides under Flash and hits a spinning heel kick before dropkicking Flash out. Flash slingshot sunset flips back in but Rudy rolls through and drops an elbow for 2 then unleashes a flurry of kicks. Dean reminds us that Flash is collecting $1000 per title defense, which no doubt makes the folks at kendosticks.com happy:) They trade chops before Rudy gets whipped into the ropes and does his horizontal hanging-in-the-ropes thing, which results in the charging Flash sailing over the top rope and out to the floor. Jonze sneaks in and attacks Rudy from behind before leaping right back out. Flash climbs back in to choke Rudy before chucking him out so the other Marauders can beat on him too. Flash drops an elbow from the apron but is really slow to get up as it looked like he hit his hip on the floor. Flash suplexes Rudy back in for 2 then gives him some fist to the face. Rudy sunset flips Flash for like 5 but Lamotta has climbed on the apron to converse with ref Ashcraft. Flash lariats Rudy then goes up top but misses an elbow drop. Rudy fires up and backdrops Flash then grabs his legs to set up the Boston crab but gets kicked away. Flash runs into a double boot then catches Rudy off the top with a fist. Rudy grabs Flash's legs again and turns him over in to the crab but Lamotta and Coleman each climb onto the apron. Rudy lets go of Flash and knocks them off but Flash grabs the kendo stick and whacks Rudy with it for the pin.
Marauders are in the ring with Jonze on the mic saying that they will not be brainwashed by anyone at OVW and states that the war they are fighting is a "war for your mind". Jonze say the Marauders are having an "open recruitment night" and wonders who will rise up?
Back from break, the Marauders are still in the ring and "Marksman" Nick Dumeyer comes out. Jonze questions him as to what would make him a Marauder. Dumeyer replies that they can help each other win matches plus they both wear camo! Jonze doesn't seem all that impressed and has Lamotta rough him up a bit before giving him a DDT with Coleman counting the pinfall. Jonze says no to Dumeyer joining up with them then asks if any others would like to join. Out comes OUR OVW Tag Team Champions Michael (not PS) Hayes & Mohamed Ali Vaez! Hayes says they didn't come out here to join the Marauders, rather to kick their faces in! Here comes the VIP Club (Joe Rosa, J Best, and "Mexicutioner" Roberto DeLuna)! Rosa says that last week, the Marauders entered into club business last week (referring to the Marauders attacking both the VIPs and Hayes/Vaez during their match last week) and anytime that there’s a party going on, the VIPs are going to be on the list! Sharpe (who Titus refers to as "a high school senior") comes out with word from Davis that the 3 teams will have a match in the main event for a spot in the Nightmare Cup tag team tournament!
Mr. Marvelous Melvin Maximus is in the back doing crunches when The Body Guy stops by. Body Guy offers Maximus an opportunity to tag up with him later for a shot at the Nightmare Cup. Maximus accepts the offer then Body Guy spots his robe hanging on a locker and reminds him that he'll need to bring it to the ring with him.
Next is an appearance by OUR OVW Champion Jamin Olivencia, who has accessorized his ring attire tonight with a bow tie. Jamin says last week was his 28th birthday and it was the best one ever because of the party thrown for him by "Team Boomstick" Jay Bradley. Jamin says Bradley was his enemy but is now his friend and he feels like he should do something nice for Bradley, so tonight we will have "Jay Bradley Appreciation Night"! Jamin calls out Bradley as we see a table that has three pies and what appears to be a stuffed unicorn on it. Bradley comes out and is immediately suspicious of this, saying he was already mad from last week when Jamin "embarrassed me in front of my fans". Bradley claims that he has exposed Jamin as a fraud. Jamin returns Bradley's favor from last week of bringing out hot ladies by calling some ladies out to the ring. Lovely Lylah comes out and Bradley is not impressed with her:( Also coming out were Jessie Belle and "Twiggy". Jamin points everyone to the big screen where there is a picture of Bradley with "#LookUgly" as the caption! Bradley gets mad at this saying it's supposed to be "#WinUgly" and Jamin apologizes for the typo. Jamin then points out another present, the unicorn which is really a piñata! Jamin then shows off the biggest present Bradley will ever get, a broomstick complete with a "Boomsleeve"! Jamin then points out the 3 pies on the table, which leads to each guy grabbing one and chasing the other around the announce table. Jamin backs Bradley to the railing and launches a pie but Bradley ducks and poor Lylah gets one in the face. Jamin grabs the third pie and hits Bradley with it then breaks the piñata over his head.
Back from break, Dean is in the ring and invites the beautiful ladies of OVW to the ring. We see Hannah & Holly Blossom, "Twiggy", Taeler Hendrix, Nikki St. John, Jessie Belle (who is sporting a bright yellow pair of chaps), Lylah (still with pie on her face), Lei'd Tapa, and OUR OVW Champion Trina Thompson. Dean announces that at the October SNS (which should be 10/5), some lucky lady will be crowned "Miss OVW"! There will be opportunities for the ladies to show their various talents plus there was mention of a bikini contest. Trina interrupts this, saying she has more important business right now, that being with Tapa. Taeler takes the mic and says she is tired of seeing these two squabbling when she is really the "Queen of OVW"! A scuffle breaks out amongst the ladies and in the melee; Trina appears to give Tapa a DDT. The ladies disperse as the refs come out to tend to Tapa, who is laid out in the ring. Meanwhile, Godderz comes out bunny-suit-less and tells Dean that this is his last chance to back out of their match. Godderz says nobody will think any different of him if he decides to forfeit. Dean tells Godderz to go put the bunny suit on because he's going to kick Godderz' ass!
Match #2: Lambda Lambda Lambda (Stephon J Baxter & Albert Einstein Baxter III) vs The Body Guy & "4M" Mr. Marvelous Melvin Maximus
This is another first round match in the Nightmare Cup tournament, although we don't have brackets. Body Guy dispatches Maximus to the curtain to make sure the Assassin doesn't come out like he did last week. Body Guy then prepares the crowd for the Robe Removal Ritual which promises to include "gorgeosity". Body Guy calls for his music to be played but, alas, the incorrect music is played as the Assassin comes in through a different entrance. Body Guy is frantically looking around to see where Assassin is but he's already in the ring! Body Guy turns around and walks right into a clothesline!
Maximus decides that he will take on the Baxters in a handicap match! Stephon starts but is promptly shoved away. Stephon manages to duck Maximus and make a tag to Albert, who climbs up top as Stephon kneels behind Maximus. Albert hits a missile dropkick and they roll up Maximus for the pin! The Baxters advance in the Nightmare Cup!!!!!
Match #3: "Mr. Rabbit-tacular" (not tm) Jessie Godderz vs Dean Hill
Despite some mic trouble, Godderz (now in the bunny suit) again gives Dean one more final last chance to forfeit. Dean does not say a word as he stands up, walks around the announce table, walks toward the ring steps then up them, climbs through the ropes, and takes off his sport coat (Godderz is giving us play-by-play of all this while trying to talk him out of doing this). Dean hands the coat to ref Sharpe, who turns away for a second. This allows Dean to lowblow Godderz and roll him up for the pin! Dean slowly puts his coat back on, remaining silent as Godderz is curled up on the mat.
Match #4: Raul Lamotta & OUR OVW TV Champion Flash Flanagan (w/Shiloh Jonze & Joe Coleman) vs Joe Rosa & "Mexicutioner" Roberto DeLuna (w/J Best) vs OUR OVW Tag Team Champions Michael (not PS) Hayes & Mohamed Ali Vaez
Dean says Godderz stepped over the line by talking about Dean's wife, so he gave it to Godderz, period. DeLuna chops Hayes and chokes him in the ropes then Flash tags in and keeps Hayes away from a tag on Vaez. Rosa blind tags in and he and Rosa try double teaming on Hayes, but they both receive DDTs. Vaez gets a tag and comes in to slug both Lamotta and Flash but gets tripped up when Best reaches through the ropes. Lamotta DDTs Vaez for 2 but Rosa breaks up the cover. The remaining Marauders and VIPs argue outside the ring and Rosa Dives out onto them. Vaez rolls up Lamotta for the pin to advance in the Nightmare Cup. Marauders are upset as the show goes off.
THOUGHTS: Wonder why Flash wouldn't be the leader of the Marauders? They also had ads for Homecoming 18 on Sunday 8/18 and the Legends Road Stories on Friday 8/23 with Davis, Rip Rogers, Trailer Park Trash, and Nick Dinsmore at the Davis Arena. Does "Twiggy" have another name or are they just calling her that? I liked the Godderz/Hill deal, especially Hill's silence before the match. Obviously, I will be looking forward to the "Miss OVW" contest but Trina took the opportunity to give Tapa a taste of her own medicine. I guess the Marauders got tired of taking applications, as had been suggested the past couple of weeks. Also wonder if or when Jason Wayne returns if he will join or feud with the Marauders. "Jay Bradley Appreciation Night" wasn't quite as amusing as Jamin's birthday party last week but it was OK. What did poor Lylah do to deserve a pie in the face? I noticed that there really hasn't been anything set up for September's SNS on 9/7 other than the Nightmare Cup finals (Go Baxters!!!!). Overall, this show was similar to last week, so I'll give it a similar 30-degree thumbs up.
