Brittany DeVore was backstage interviewing Rudy Switchblade. DeVore asked Switchblade where his security crew was. Siwtchblade told DeVore the best defense was a good offense. Referee Chris Sharpe ran up in a panic and something has happened to Jamin Olivencia. The camera, and Sharpe, ran down the hall, to find Olivencia being pushed down a flight of stairs outside by Rudy Switchblade's goon squad. Olivencia appeared to be badly injured, but they never went back to this again the rest of the show, and they should have. Switchblade and Olivencia meet in a street fight on September 3rd.
The showed a video of OVW heavyweight champion Jason Wayne outside his home. Wayne talked about being powerbombed thru four chairs by Andreas Rossi last week, which he said broke one of his ribs, and cracked three others. Wayne said doctors told him he shouldn't be wrestling for weeks, but that he will be at the Davis arena next week, and he will be defending his title against Rossi on September 3rd. Wayne raised his shirt, showing his heavily taped ribs, and said this wouldn't stop him, which got a pop in the arena.
7. Andreas Rossi w/Christian Mascagni beat Jay Bly
Mascagni came out with a crown and a scepter....Oh brother. Mascagni took the mic and said Jason Wayne was scared to be here tonight, and would not be ready to compete by the Saturday Night Special, and would just have to forfeit the OVW title to Andreas Rossi on September 3rd. Mascagni then christened Rossi as "King Rossi". Felt like a rip off of King Sheamus, not to mention Jerry Lawler of course. It was a better crown than the stupid thing Sheamus wore though, and it got good heat in the arena. Not exactly the heights of originality here though. I doubt Kenny Bolin cared for this King business too much either. Jay Bly is a skinny kid with no body and a mohawk. Rossi beat him quick with a powerbomb, and then gave him another powerbomb after the match. A bunch of refs came out to try and stop this, as Jerry Lawler's music played. Like I said...Oh brother. Hey, instead of a crown, shouldn't Rossi have been given the $25,000 bounty money that Mascagni put up on Jason Wayne? Rossi did hurt Wayne, and put him out of action, at least for this week.
Izza Belle and Jessie Belle Smothers were arguing backstage about Izza Belle losing the OVW Womens title. They said wait until "Dad"(?)(Tracy Smothers) finds out. lol
CJ Lane finally let a disheveled looking Benny Bray out of the office, but soon as she did, big, black lady wrestler Epiphany shoved Bray right back into the office yet more lovin'. Chris Silvio and Mo Green saw this, and were yakking it up.
Mohamad Ali was at his locker, highly nervous. Vaez said he owns a home and cars, and doesn't need this. Vaez was taking stuff out of his locker when Michael Hayes attacked him yet again. Vaez again escaped with the fake leg. Hayes said this wasn't over.
Hill, Corsey and Kenny Bolin were talking at the desk when Vaez came thru the curtain, looking frightened, with the fake leg of Michael Hayes. Vaez was looking under the ring for Michael Hayes. Vaez got in the ring and took the mic and said that Hayes has been attacking him for week, and he can't take it anymore. Vaez on his knees saying he'll do anything if Hayes will call off the dogs. Vaez said he'd give Hayes back his leg, saying take the leg and go, and get out of my life, please. Vaez kept up his plea, while Michael Hayes snuck thru the crowd wearing a hooded sweatshirt. Hayes got in the ring and attacked Vaez yet again, who ran away, this time without the fake leg. Crowd loud for this. Hayes put the leg on and walked around. Hayes took the mic and said this wasn't even about the leg anymore, it was about Vaez putting his hands on his flesh and blood. Vaez got into a brief physical confrontation with Hayes' mother after their match at the August Saturday Night Special. Hayes said he has some special friends coming to the September 3rd Saturday Night Special, and Vaez won't be able to run or hide then. So I guess it will be a lumberjack match on that night, or something like that.
Joshua "Jump Squat" Johnson was giving The Fat & The Furious(Trailer Park Trash & Jack Black) a pep talk backstage. Jump Squat said Prince Bolin has thrown them a curve ball, but they can still win tonight and regain the OVW Southern Tag Team titles. The Elite(Ted McNaler & Adam Revolver) walked up and wished the Fat and The Furious good luck tonight, and said they, The Elite, were the number one contenders on September 3rd, and would face the winner of tonights match then, and they would be watching tonight. The Fat & the Furious beat The Elite for the belts when the Elite was not getting along. It was uneasy between the two teams, but they finally knocked fists together, as both teams are babyfaces now.
"Smooth" Johnny Spade was telling a joke backstage. Up came his stalker Tony Gunn, holding his Johnny Spade inspired stuffed bear. Spade heavily berated Gunn about the bear, and for trying to give him a bear. Spade told Gunn you buy a guy a beer, not a bear. Spade told Gunn he was done with him. Gunn looked very hurt, and clutched the bear.
8. Paredyse beat Benjamin Bray to retain the OVW TV Title
Bray stumbled out here, after getting it on with both CJ Lane and Epiphany tonight, his hair a mess, his t-torn. He looked in no condition to fight, let alone go for a title. Bray earned this title shot by winning a dark match royal rumble style battle royal last week. Paredyse fell on the mat and invited Bray to "cuddle" with him. Bray was really sorry he did that. Paredyse kept messing with Bray by pinching his rear, and trying to kiss at him, along with other Homophobic spots. Bray got upset and complained to the ref about Paredyse' tactics. Paredyse then got serious, slapped Bray across the face a few times, and beat him with a running, spinning neckbreaker.
Brittany DeVore became upset, and got in the ring to check on Bray. Taryn Shay then ran out, kinda pushed DeVore away and checked on Bray. DeVore pushed Shay back, bothing claiming that Benny was their boyfriend. Out came Solo Darling with the same claim. Next was Jessie Belle Smothers, then Izza Belle Smothers. Next came the Blossom Twins, then CJ Lane. Shay forced DeVore out of the ring. Out came Epiphany, in ripped jeans. Bray was still down in the ring during all of this, while Epiphany cleaned house and knocked all the girls out of the ring. Epiphany then picked Bray up, and kissed him. Dean Hill seemed legit impressed with Bray's "game" after all of this. It was a very funny segment. I think the only women in OVW Bray hasn't made it with yet is current champion Lady JoJo. Brittany DeVore was openly pouting in her chair by the sidewall the rest of this show.
9. The Fat & The Furious(Trailer Park Trash & Jack Black) w/Joshua "Jump Squat" Johnson beat James "Moose" Thomas & Raul Lamotta w/Prince Bolin to win the OVW Southern Tag Team titles
TV main event time. In addition to Raul Lamotta subbing for Rocco Bellagio here, no Mo Green or the personal assistant out on the floor with Prince Bolin for this one, and Green was at the taping, so I guess they're changing things up some. Both teams fighting at the bell. Lamotta really got dominated by The Fat & The Furious early. Jack Black hit a 537 pound butt bump to the corner on Lamotta. Trailer Park Trash ended up taking the heat here, with Thomas beating on TPT in the corner. Black back in. Some confusion in the ring between Black and Thomas shortly before the finish. Black hit a sidewalk slam on Lamotta for the win, and The Fat & The Furious regained the OVW Southern Tag team titles, and will now defend them against The Elite on September 3rd. Prince Bolin was heavily berating Raul Lamotta on the floor after this match. Kenny Bolin on his feet, also berating Lamotta. I halfway expect Bolin Services 2.0 to now protest this title change, since a sub was in the match and got pinned to lose the belts, even though it was their idea.
