6. Mohamad Ali Vaez w/Josette Bynum, Jessie Godderz & Rudy Switchblade beat Jamin Olivencia to retain the OVW TV title
Bynum came out pissed off here, saying she just received a message from the OVW BOD saying Jamin Olivencia will get a shot at the OVW TV title tonight. Olivencia had earned a shot, but at the most recent OVW TV taping, Bynum revoked it from him, and was supposed to have a surprise opponent for Olivencia tonight instead. Jessie Godderz and Rudy Switchblade laid down outside the ring out of the sight of Olivencia. Soon as the match started, Bynum took the mic and said this would be a "Light out match", the lights went out, and Godderz and Switchblade got in the ring and beat the crap out of Olivencia. Vaez went for the pin soon as the lights came back on, but Olivencia kicked out. Godderz and Switchblade again laid by the ring, with Godderz exchanging much colorful banter with the crowd. I've heard "It's not Gay, It's pro wrestling" many times, but Godderz and Switchblade laying together on the floor looked as close to being Gay as possible and it still being considered "pro wrestling". At one point Godderz and Switchblade did one armed push ups on the floor to amuse themselves.
Meanwhile back in the ring, when Olivencia took control of the match, Bynum ordered the lights out again, and Godderz and Switchblade again beat on Olivencia, but again Vaez couldn't put him away when the lights came back on. Vaez applied a Camel clutch, but Olivencia broke free. Vaez told Bynum he has things on control, and doesn't need the light turned out again, but Olivencia landed a big top rope dropkick on Vaez. Both guys exchanging blows in mid ring. Olivencia with a big knee to Vaez, and then Olivencia with a moonsault off the ropes. Never seen him do that before. Olivencia hit his "O Drop" clamping DDT finisher, so Bynum ordered the lights out yet again, but this time Olivencia beat the crap out of Godderz and Switchblade in the dark, so when the lights came back on, Olivencia was the only one standing, which got a big pop. The crowd was into this match anyhow. The crafty Vaez though then pinned Olivencia by holding the trunks to retain the OVW TV title. Wow, what an unusual story this match told. Don't think I've ever seen a match quite like it, and the match quality was pretty decent, combined with a hot crowd, so it worked, despite the "odd" vibe of Godderz and Switchblade laying on the floor together at ringside.
7. Michael Hayes & James "Moose" Thomas beat Rocco Bellagio, Jack Black & Joe Coleman w/Prince Bolin & Mickey in a handicap ladder match
Lots of stips attached to this match. If Hayes and Moose won, they got Mickey, the simple minded assistant, back from the abusive Prince Bolin. If BS 2.0 won, Hayes and Moose have to join that stable. Mickey came out here holding a handicapped parking sign, as ordered by Prince Bolin. Two ladders were set up for this one. A manila envelope hanging from a ceiling chain in mid ring was the prize to grab to win it. BS 2.0 dominated Hayes and Moose with chair shots early. This was held under Texas tornado rules. Joe Coleman came off the ropes with a chair elbow drop onto Moose. Jack Black and Rocco Bellagio splashed Moose in the corner with a ladder on him. Black jumped off the apron onto Moose on the guardrail in a move that may have tweaked Black's knee legit. Hayes knocked Bellagio off the apron by whacking him with the handicapped parking sign. Black and Moose slugged it out in mid ring, and Black was knocked over the top rope. Moose up on the ladder, but Coleman hit him on the knees with a chair, and then tipped the ladder over. Coleman got on Bellagio's shoulders, and tried to win the match in a show off fashion, but ended up eating a Moose kick from James Thomas instead. Moose charged the corner, and hit a chair that was wedged there. Michael Hayes was laying on a ladder, and the smaller than he used to be but still huge, Jack Black tried a top rope splash, but Hayes moved, so Black splashed a ladder. Hayes gave Bellagio a Code breaker with a ladder. This match sold out the curtain, many wrestlers were watching this one from upstairs. Bellagio gave Hayes a chokeslam from off a ladder. Mickey got in the ring and grabbed Bellagio, but Bellagio kicked him off, but then wasted too much time. Moose gave Bellagio a power bomb off the ladder. The one legged Michael Hayes then climbed a ladder to win it, so Mickey is again back with his buddies, Moose and Hayes. Dean Hill said this is the night Mickey became a man. Mickey ripped off his BS 2.0 shirt and threw it at those who no longer control him. The crowd was pretty into this match too, and it was quite a spectacle.
8. Rob Terry w/Josette Bynum beat "Smooth" Johnny Spade to win the OVW Heavyweight title
Johnny Spade, wearing his classic black pants with the green spade on it, came out holding his side and limping from the severe beating he took at the Wednesday TV taping. Spade got the better of Rob Terry early with a stick and move style attack. It just appeared to be making Terry mad though. Spade must have got popped in the nose legit because the referee gave Spade a tissue from his back pocket, and Spade shoved it up his right nostril, and worked the rest of the match like that. Bynum announced on the mic that this was now a falls count anywhere match. Terry with an over the knee back breaker, and then a bear hug that sent Spade to his knees. Spade knocked Terry down with a second rope dropkick, but Bynum tripped Spade coming off the ropes to break his momentum. Terry wrapped a chain around his fist and hit Spade, and was caught by the referee, but Bynum then announced this was a no DQ match, but Spade kicked out. Terry grabbed a chair, but Spade superkicked into Terry's face. Spade took Terry down after two regular super kicks. Jason Wayne, who turned heel on Spade out of the blue this past Wednesday, ran out and gave Spade his full nelson slam. Bynum then announced this was also a handicap match. At this point I was wishing two babyfaces would have come out and joined the fray to help Spade. I mean why the Hell not?? But no such thing happened. Terry was yelling at Spade to stay down. Terry gave Spade a suplex into a powerslam to finally beat Spade and win the OVW Heavyweight title, after the deck had been stacked to the ceiling in Terry's favor. This result surprised me. Spade had taken such a beating on the TV shows the past month that I figured he's retain the title somehow, but no. All of the titles in OVW are now held by "Family" members, except the Womens title, and that's also held by a heel at this point. Send any feedback to
