5. The Blossom Twins(Holly & Hannah) & OVW Womens champion Taeler Hendrix beat Lady JoJo, Epiphany & Taryn Shay in a "6 person tag team match"
Ron Hed introduced this as a "6 person tag team match" which amused me, because it was all women in the match. The Blossom Twins debuted new British style ring gear with long tights, which looked good. Lady JoJo openly berated both of her partners before this match. As we saw earlier, Taryn Shay walked out on JoJo a few weeks ago, and Epiphany let JoJo down by losing a singles match to Taeler Hendrix on TV last week. JoJo then lost the womens title to Hendrix a few days later. Shortly after this match began, some music came up, and out came Benny Bray, holding a book. Shay had recently faked a pregnancy here, falsely claiming Bray was the father, and then claiming Chris Silvio and Mo Green put her up to faking the pregnancy. Here Bray said the book was Taryn Shay's diary, which he found backstage. Bray then read from page 86 which said "Today I had an accident in front of everybody. My pants were soaked. I completely forgot it was this time of the month". Shay freaked out, went to the floor, and then ran to the back, leaving this a three on two match. Hendrix then dominated Epiphany. Epiphany had enough, and she went to the back, leaving this a three on one match. Taeler Hendrix then rolled up a lonely and stunned Lady JoJo for the win. Bad times for Lady JoJo, no longer the champion, at least for now, and her flunkies keep walking out on her and letting her down.
Lennox Norris was talking to The Elite(Ted McNaler & Adam Revolver) backstage. Norris was supposed to team with Raphael Constantine against The Elite for the OVW Southern Tag Team titles on November 12th, but Norris claimed Constantine had car trouble. McNaler then allowed Norris to pick a different partner for that title shot, so Norris selected James "Moose" Thomas, but Norris and Thomas then lost to The Elite. Here Norris slipped up and mentioned Constantine had his tires slashed to The Elite, and McNaler then busted Norris as being a liar, saying Constantine never had any car trouble at all, and Norris just picked Moose because he thought that would give him a better chance to win. McNaler said he was going to give Norris and Constantine a shot at the tag titles, but now has changed his mind since Norris is a liar. Norris knew he was busted. Revolver then called McNaler out on the fact that McNaler instantly thought Revolver had caused Constantine's "car trouble" last week. McNaler apologized to Revolver. The always sneaky, and often questionable, Revolver then told McNaler, "If you can't trust your tag team partner, who can you trust"? A very interesting line indeed. Revolver then surprised McNaler by informing him that he Revolver has a shot at the TV title tonight, which McNaler obviously knew nothing about, and looked confused over it.
The mentally ill Tony Gunn was talking to Sean Casey backstage. Gunn asked Casey to be his tag team partner on December 3rd against "Smooth" Johnny Spade and Shiloh Jonze. Gunn has been stalking Spade for month now, and that will mark their first actual match against each other. On November 12th Gunn loaded his stuffed bear, named Ralphie, with a brick, and hit Jonze to beat him in a singles match, but Spade came out and stooged it off, causing the ref to reverse the decision, and give the win to Jonze.
Here Sean Casey told Gunn no, and called him a goof. Gunn pulled the head off Ralphie the bear, and told Casey to look inside. The bear at money in it, and a prepaid debit card. Heh! That was enough to persuade Casey to change his answer to a yes to teaming with Gunn on December 3rd.
Meanwhile elsewhere backstage, Brandon Espinosa walked into his locker room, only to hear music playing, and find various posters of men hung up on the lockers, and questionable, perhaps Gay, looking magazines on the floor. There was also words written that said "I'm here, I'm queer, get used to it". Obviously this was the work of Paredyse, and it was revenge move, as someone, most likely Espinosa, had destroyed Paredyse' dressing room last week, and left him a crypitc message in lipstick on the mirror.
6. Jason Wayne beat Joe Coleman
Babyface vs babyface match here, in fact these two teamed up on November 12th as part of a 10 man tag, but you wouldn't have known that from this match. Coleman decided this was the time to make a statement and shoved Wayne back, but it was totally the wrong time and wrong place, as Wayne was in no mood for that kind of crap. Jason Wayne is pissed, and hot on the trail of Nick Dinsmore, and shouted out here several times for Dinsmore, as he took some frustration out on Joe Coleman. Wayne pounded on Coleman angrily. Wayne with a running powerslam on Coleman, and then beat Coleman with his full nelson slam finisher.
Jason Wayne took the mic after his match, and told Nick Dinsmore to consider that a message. Wayne said he's been looking for Dinsmore for two week, and Dinsmore has been avoiding him. Wayne said if Dinsmore thinks this will just all blow over, he is sadly mistaken. Wayne said when he left the US Marines, he left all his Military missions there behind him. He said when he came to OVW his mission was to become OVW champion, and he did so quickly. Wayne said now his mission was to destroy Nick Dinsmore.
7. Adam Revolver beat Alex Silva to win the OVW TV title
Revolver's championship tag team partner, Ted McNaler, watched this match from the balcony. Silva, who won the TV title here just 7 days ago for the second reign in his career, was in control of this match early, but Revolver kept bailing out to the floor to break Silva's momentum. Silva went for his "Silva surfer" running knee finisher, but Revolver caught it, and went to work on the legs of Silva with an Indian death lock. Silva back with a spinebuster, but Revolver hit Silva with his Russian leg sweep finisher for the win, and to regain the OVW TV title, which also again makes Revolver a dual title holder in OVW. Revolver has been desperately trying to become the first simultaneous triple title holder in OVW history. He's come close in the past, holding both titles, but losing to then OVW Heavyweight champion Jason Wayne, and losing the TV title to Wayne in the process. Now, Revolver could potentially do it again. Ted McNaler left the balcony after the match, but didn't come to the ring to celebrate with Revolver. Not sure what was up with Silva only holding the title for 7 days this time, but they change this title frequently here. But, Silva worked a dark match at the most recent TNA tapings, losing to Austin Aires, so I guess it's possible he lost the TV title here so TNA could use him more, but that may not be the case at all. It could also be that Silva is going back to his native Montreal again for a bit. Time will tell. Silva and Revolver shook hands after the match.
Backstage a fired up Prince Bolin was yelling at his men, James "Moose" Thomas and Rocco Bellgaio, telling them to find and destroy "That Mexican" Raul Lamotta right now. Lamotta has been outsmarting Bolin Services 2.0 at every turn recently, ever since turning on them, when they wouldn't let him "officially" join their stable, because he was too much of a screw up.
Trailer Park Trash then walked up to Prince Bolin and told Bolin he knows what his men did to his tag team partner, Jack Black. TPT said he can't do anything physically to get back at BS 2.0 because he's now the director of wrestling operations at OVW. But TPT did inform Bolin that one of his men would have to face Raul Lamotta at the November 19th OVW house show at the Colgate Gym in Clarksville, Indiana. How is that punishment exactly? I mean BS 2.0 WANTS to get revenge on Lamotta. Duh...
But then, a panicked Rocco Bellagio was back screaming at prince Bolin to come immediately. Seems that Raul Lamotta had stolen Bolin's car, and was driving away with Moose Thomas on the hood! LOL! Damn, I wished the camera had gotten video of that. This may have been something they should have gone back to at the end of the show too, but we heard no more about it, at least for this week.
8. Jamin Olivencia beat OVW Heavyweight champion Rudy Switchblade by DQ in a non title match
I thought this might end up being the TV main event for tonight, and it did. Olivencia was still holding the back of his head from Switchblade hitting him there with the OVW TV belt in the opening segment. An angry Olivencia was right on the attack on Switchblade, and kept total control early on. In fact, Olivencia was in control for much of this match, Switchblade couldn't get much going here momentum wise. Switchblade came off the top, but Olivencia had it scouted, and blasted Switchblade with a wicked knee to the face. Olivencia then sent Switchblade over the top rope with a big running forearm. Olivencia would not let Switchblade get back in the ring, but finally suplexed him back in. Both guys ended up brawling on the floor. Switchblade catapulted Olivencia into the large steel beam that helps hold the Davis arena up. Switchblade's nose looked puffy, and he appeared to have a little blood on his lip. Christian Mascagni gave him some water. Both guys went for their respective finishers, but couldn't get them. Olivencia with a stiff dropkick off the ropes. Mascagni removed on of the turnbuckle pads on the second rope, which Olivencia eventually got whipped into, and took it on his side, but it didn't appear to hurt him too badly. Olivencia hit his "O drop" champing DDT finisher. Mascagni up on the apron. Olivencia and Mascagni kinda went at it. Meanwhile, Switchblade got the OVW title belt, and hit Olivencia in the face with it, right in front of the ref, for the DQ. When the front of the belt hit Olivenicia, the end of it also whipped around and caught him somewhere, maybe on the face or neck. Made a cracking of a whip like sound like it really stung, wherever it landed. Switchblade pitched Olivencia out of the ring, while Mascagni blocked referee Chris Sharpe. Switchblade moved the mats on the floor, and gave Olivencia a piledriver on the concrete floor. Many rushed out to check on Olivencia, who was down for a long time, and ended up being stretchered out of the building, the same way Mike Mondo was only a few days before. That's two top OVW stars that Rudy Switchblade has injured to the point of being stretchered out of the building in less than a week, and in both cases, the actual stretcher jobs were not filmed. I guess Switchblade better enjoy this while he can, I get the feeling the paybacks are going to be a brutal "Wake up call" for him.
The match between Switchblade and Olivencia on this show had a different vibe to it. It was worked at a deliberate pace, with sudden moments of big action spliced in. Olivencia and Switchblade mesh really well in the ring, but this one just felt odd for some reason. It was one of those matches where as a fan you knew something was going to happen, you just didn't know what or when, but the match felt like more of a backdrop. It sorta seemed like they were told to stretch it out and go a bit longer at one point, don't know if that's true or not, but that's the feeling I got from it.
