4. Shiloh Jonze vs Jamin Olivencia went to a no contest
This was the first match of the TV taping, an interesting babyface vs babyface match up here. Match was dead even early, as both guys had the same idea on moves several times. It then became a bit heated between these two. With both guys up fighting on the turnbuckle, Jonze gave Olivencia a forearm shot to the head that sent Olivencia tumbling to the floor. Jonze went to the floor after Olivencia, but when he did, he was greeted by an "old redheaded women", who was walking on the floor with a cane. The "old woman" suddenly jabbed the cane hard into the gut on Jonze, and then back in the ring, whacked Jonze several times hard with the cane. "Smooth" Johnny Spade made the save, and pulled the wig off the "old woman", who was none other than Tony Gunn. Gunn has been stalking Spade for months now, and then injured Jonze several times in recent weeks, because he's insanely jealous that Jonze is friends with Spade. Shiloh Jonze faces Tony Gunn this Saturday. This old woman attacker angle was well done here.
OVW Womens champion Lady JoJo was talking to big Black lady wrestler Epiphany backstage. JoJo was asking Epiphany to have her back when she defends the title against Taeler Hendrix this Saturday. Epiphany was agreeable to this proposal. Taryn Shay walked out on Lady JoJo last week.
5. Jason Wayne beat James Onno
Wayne had been OVW Heavyweight champion since early July, but lost the title two weeks ago to the now turned heel Nick Dinsmore. Onno attacked Wayne before the bell. Two big guys going at it here, but Wayne came back and took total control quickly. Wayne got the win in short order with his full nelson slam finisher. More or less a squash. The crowd was pretty dead here.
Jason Wayne took the mic after the match, and said he was coming after Nick Dinsmore hard for everything Dinsmore has done the past two weeks. Wayne said Dinsmore was his trainer, but that was all out the window now, and he would fight Dinsmore anywhere he sees him. Wayne said after he takes care of Dinsmore, he's coming after Rudy Switchblade, and will win the OVW Heavyweight title back. Nice promo. I think Wayne is facing Dinsmore this Saturday, but I'm not 100% sure of that one.
Christian Mascagni was talking to Rudy Switchblade backstage. A still very unhappy looking Mike Mondo joined the conversation. Mascagni asked Mondo how the party planning for tonight was going, and Mascagni added he wants everything top of the line for this party. Mondo asked if he'd be reimbursed for the expenses(heh), and Mascagni assured him he would. Switchblade then asked Mondo refill his coffee cup for him.
Brittany DeVore interviewed Cliff Compton on the floor in front of the babyface entrance. Compton usually gets really strong pops here, and he got some, but even he had trouble getting the dead crowd tonight to make much noise, let alone sustain it. Compton talked about his match against Mohamad Ali Vaez this Saturday. Compton said he knew Vaez was here now because he saw his Camel double parked out front. Compton said he saw Michael Hayes in this hospital. Compton said Hayes' mother personally asked him to make Vaez pay for this, so this Saturday night, he Cliff Compton will personally send Vaez all the way back to Persia. Since both Vaez and Compton mentioned Hayes' mother in their promos, I suspect she might somehow get involved in their match this Saturday. I pretty much expect Michael Hayes to show up and get involved as well. The interviews on the floor in front of the entrances was something new they tried out tonight, seemed to work fine.
6. Taeler Hendrix beat Epiphany w/Lady JoJo
I guess JoJo and Epiphany could be called the "Sistahood", or something like that. The large Epiphany threw the redheaded Hendrix around at will early, and seemed to be really enjoying her work. Hendrix came back and got the win with a crossbody, shocking Epiphany and JoJo. Match was short, and not especially good. JoJo defends the OVW Womens title against Hendrix this Saturday.
Paredyse was shown in his dressing room looking very sad and upset, because someone had vandalized some of his gear. A boa, or something, had been destroyed, and was laying in pieces all over the floor. Paredyse was on the verge of tears. On the mirror, someone had written in lipstick "Go home Queen". The culprit had to be Brandon Espinosa.
Out to the ring came Chris Silvio, Mo Green, and Taryn Shay. Things came to head last week, with Shay finally confessing to the supposed daddy to be Benny Bray that she had faked her pregnancy. Silvio and Green did their regular "Psychedelic Superstar" mic work. Silvio said he would face Bray this Saturday night. Silvio said he and Green were more than just wrestlers though. Silvio said they were jacks of all trades. Silvio said they would right a wrong tonight, saying they would patch up the "misunderstanding" between Benny Bray and Taryn Shay. Silvio said every relationship has problems, things like a fake pregnancy here and there. Well, I guess this IS Kentucky after all. Out came Benny Bray, wearing Tuxedo suit. He looked like he should be taking drink orders. Bray met some hot looking girls along the side rail, who immediately started kissing on him, and one even licked his face. Before Shay claimed she was pregnant, Bray had his way with all the ladies of OVW, except Lady JoJo, in many spots backstage at the Davis arena. The planted ladies kissing on Bray here were some of the Mondo Wrestling a Go Go performers, who are doing a show at a bar on November 17th. Shay took the mic, and ordered Bray to get away from those whores. Bray got in the ring and called Shay a Floozy. While Silvio told Bray to not do anything stupid, Shay snuck up from behind and gave Bray a low blow. Silvio then pounded on Bray with the cordless mic several times, as several refs ran out to break this up. Bray was left laying.
Prince Bolin was talking to Rocco Bellagio and James "Moose" Thomas in the locker room. Lennox Norris boldly came into the room and said he was picking Moose as his partner to go after the tag titles against The Elite this Saturday. Prince Bolin was incredulous, and berated Norris for coming in here, and declaring that. But Moose actually liked the idea, so the highly unlikely tag team of Thomas and Norris now have a tag title shot this Saturday night. While all this was going on, Raul Lamotta snuck in behind everyone, in a comical and campy way, and stole the OVW TV title, which was currently held by Rocco Bellagio. The way Lamotta stole the belt cracked me up. Lamotta had been trying to join Bolin Services 2.0 for a good while, but they kept spurning him, to the point of openly laughing in his face. Last week during the 8 man melee for the OVW title, Lamotta turned on BS 2.0 in dramatic, and timely, fashion. Anyhow, Bellagio turned around to grab his title belt, and freaked out when it was missing. Much yelling then ensued.
7. Alex Silva beat Rocco Bellagio w/Prince Bolin to win the OVW TV Title
Silva became the youngest OVW TV Title champion in history some months ago, and indicated recently he wanted to win the TV title back. Silva beat Randy Terrez on Tuesday night at St. Therese gym in Louisville to earn this title shot. Bellagio was very bothered to not have the actual title belt with him here, and shouted out several times asking where it was. The show long dead crowd finally came alive for the first time all night during this match. Better late than never I guess. Still, the crowd here is an odd duck at times. Silva with two crossbody blocks early. Silva came off the top tope, but Bellagio sidestepped him. Bellagio with a bear hug on Silva, followed up with a fall away slam. Bellagio went to the floor, and while there, pulled Silva to the ring post groin first. Raul Lamotta appeared in the balcony with the stolen OVW TV title belt, which distracted Bellagio greatly. Silva fired back with some offense in the ring. Silva hit his "Silva surfer" running knee from a short distance to beat Bellagio, and win the OVW TV title. An Ok match, but the crowd finally coming to life makes all the difference. Lamotta handed the belt down to Silva. Silva held the belt in his teeth, like Bellagio did when he was the champion.
Prince Bolin took the mic and cut an angry promo. Bellagio will get his rematch for the OVW TV title against now champion Alex Silva this Saturday.
They set up a table in the ring, poured confetti on it, put some streamers on the ropes, poured balloons all over the ring, and put a cake on the table. Ahhh, a cake in a pro wrestling ring, no doubt someones face was going to end up in that sucker.
Christian Mascagni was backstage on his cell phone. Mike Mondo came up to Mascagni, looking unhappier than even before, if that was possible. Mascagni wanted to make sure everything was in place for the party. Mondo handed Rudy Switchblade back his coffee cup, which it appeared he never refilled.
Next came the main event of this taping, which was not a match, it was Rudy Switchblade's party to celebrate his winning the OVW Heavyweight title. Christian Mascagni threw confetti in Dean Hill's hair, and on his jacket, on the way to the ring. Mascagni got in the ring with Switchblade, and said Switchblade truly deserved this "beautiful" party. Mike Mondo came out and joined the festivities, but looked more like he was at a funeral. Mascagni kept calling Mondo "Mikey". Mondo told Mascagni not to call him "Mikey", saying "Mikey" was no more, he was Mike Mondo. Mascagni asked the party planner Mondo where the booze, the women, and the guests were? Mondo said he thought he did a good job with the party planning. Mondo took exception to Mascagni saying "we" now have the title. Mondo said there is no "we", or at least, he's not included in it. Mondo said Switchblade has the title that Mascagni cost him. Mondo said he had Dinsmore beat least week during the 8 man melee match. Mondo said he went to the top rope, but Mascagni got on the apron, and hit the rope, causing him to fall. Mascagni called Mondo a "selfish prick", and told him to think about the "team", and that "we" now have the title. Mondo said Mascagni needs to check the mirror, that maybe Switchblade wasn't as good as he thinks he is, and that maybe Mondo made a mistake by hiring Mascagni as his manager/attourny several months ago. Mascagni became angry and said when Mondo was fired from OVW several months ago, he Mascagni got him back in. Mascagni said he got OVW owner Danny Davis banned from his own Davis arena. Mascagni started really feeling on the mic at this point as he got on a roll. Mascagni said he got Mondo into the tournament for the OVW title in July, and got him to the finals, but then Mondo couldn't even beat a rookie, Jason Wayne. Mascagni mentioned other losses Mondo suffered, and called him a failure. Mondo then forced Mascagni face first into the cake, Mascagni coming up with his face full of frosting, and cake all over his suit. Mascagni first said Switchblade would face Mondo and teach him a lesson this Saturday, but then changed his mind, and told Switchblade to "Hurt him now". Switchblade blasted Mondo, who was now covered with cake himself, with two hard chair shots to the back. Switchblade then put Mondo in his "Wake up call" submission finisher, which is the old Walls of Jericho. Once that was finally released, Mondo wasn't moving. Many refs and the geek squad ran out, and it took them a long time to help the injured Mondo out of the ring. Dean Hill looked stunned at the announce desk for an extended period of time. I guess it's been a good party when it ends with someone facedown passed out, and with cake smeared all over their ass. Switchblade might face Mondo this Saturday, but I'm not sure of that.
As I often say, yet another "interesting" show from OVW tonight for sure. Not sure what the post taping dark matches were, I had to leave. Send any feedback to
