Opening Tag Team Contest: The Havana Pitbulls (Rocky Romero and Ricky Reyes) vs. Jinsei Shinzaki and Yuji Nagata
Backstory: None. This is an unofficial Number One Contenders Match for the tag team titles. The Pitbulls want a shot at the tag team titles - Nagata and Shinzaki are a new team. This match is mostly for the fans, but could have implications on the next challenegers for the tag team titles.
Highlights: Fun opening tag team match. Shinzaki and Nagata work well as a team. After about fifthteen minutes, Nagata throws Romero out of the ring and leaps through the ropes, hitting Romero with a suicide dive. Alone in the ring, Shinzaki catches Reyes with Koyo Otashi (Crucifix Powerbomb) for the upset victory!
Backstory: Kevin Sullivan started his own stable upon the creation of the NCWF: Sullivan's Slaughterhouse. The members of this stable were himself, Danny Doring, Roadkill, and Abdullah the Butcher. At the Royal Rumble match, Sullivan entered himself and Abdullah into the match, knowing that Abdullah would have a great chance of winning based on size and violence tendencies. Sullivan was eliminated by the time Abby entered the match, but Abdullah came in, stabbing everyone with a fork. He went on a rampage, looking like a surefire contender. Soon after, Steve Blackman came in and neutralized Abdullah with a weapon of his own: the kendo stick. Several kendo stick shots later, Blackman, along with Eddie Gilbert, was able to eliminated Abdullah, enraging Sullivan.
Sullivan, feeling that his stable was embarrassed by Blackman's actions, signed Abdullah up for a match with Blackman at NCWF II: Die Harder. Blackman was able to defeat Abdullah in a Falls Count Anywhere Match. Sullivan, again enraged, began to attack Abdullah. Abdullah attacked back, but fell to Sullivan's newest member of Sullivan's Slaughterhouse, Rick Steiner.
Abdullah the Butcher was soon traded for Bobby Lashley. Sullivan, not satisfied, signed Steiner up for a Falls Count Anywhere match with Blackman at NCWF III: The Last Crusade. Blackman was able to defeat Steiner as well. Sullivan, along with Doring and Roadkill, attacked Steiner, leading to Blackman saving Steiner from a beatdown. This led to a Falls Count Anywhere Tag Team match, with Blackman and Steiner teaming up to face Doring and Roadkill. Sullivan's Slaughterhouse got the win at NCWF IV: A New Hope after Sullivan's interference.
After the match, Blackman got on the mic and challenged Sullivan to a match. Sullivan insisted that if Blackman wanted to face Sullivan so badly, he would go through Danny Doring and Roadkill first, running the "Hardcore Gauntlet." To counter the Slaughterhouse's numbers, Rick Steiner will second Steve Blackman, ensuring no interference will occur.
This match represents the longest running feud in the NCWF. Blackman wants to defeat Sullivan once and for all, Sullivan wants to do likewise, and Doring and Roadkill want to finish this up to get back to the tag team division. This feud will be settled TONIGHT!
Highlights: First up is Danny Doring. Steve Blackman defeats him in about 5 minutes after several kendo stick shots to the head. Second up is Roadkill. Sullivan attempts interference, but Steiner holds him at bay. Blackman delivers a DDT off the entrance ramp, earning the victory. Last is Kevin Sullivan. Sullivan immediately goes to attack Blackman, but Blackman delievers an ass whooping and pins him.
Winner: Steve Blackman (pinfall, 15:49)
MORE TO COME!
Match 3: Bobby Lashley (w. Abraham Washington) vs. Jack Swagger (w. Eddie Gilbert)
Backstory: Eddie Gilbert formed his own faction in the NCWF: Hot Stuff International Inc. The members were then-Champion Brock Lesnar, Joey Matthews and Christian York, and Jack Swagger. Gilbert wanted to reign supreme in the NCWF.
Bobby Lashley came to the NCWF at NCWF III. Upon arriving, he expressed his intention to battle Brock Lesnar and take his belt. However, with HBK getting the title shot against Brock, Bobby Lashley has set his sights, temporarily, on battling Jack Swagger.
Highlights: Jack Swagger attempts a gutwrench powerbomb, but Lashley slips out of it. Lashley then puts Swagger up for the Dominator, but Swagger reverses that into a DDT. The finish shows Lashley getting ready for a spear, but Gilbert holds his leg, allowing Swagger to recover and hit his All-American American powerbomb for the 3.
Winner: Jack Swagger (pinfall, powerbomb, 12:34)
Match 4: WORLD CRUSIERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP - Psicosis vs. Juventud Guerrera
Backstory: Psicosis and Juventud Guerrera were both involved in the Intercontinental Championship title tournament. After both were eliminated in the semi-finals, Palmer Cannon had the two team up to face Los Guerreros Del Infierno for the Tag Team Championship. After a loss, the two luchadores started fighting each other. When Cannon announced the creation of the Crusierweight Championship, he could think of no two better participants to crown the first champion. As noted earlier, Cannon insists that the World Crusierweight Championship is EQUAL with the World Heavyweight Championship and that weight classes will be enforced for both championship.
Highlights: Seriously. Any fan of lucha libre, or any Crusierweight match in WCW that got some time can use their imagination here. Finish comes when Juventud Guerrera hits his flipping DDT for the 3 in a wonderful match. Afterwards, the two luchadores shake hands.
Winner and NEW World Crusierweight Champion: Juventud Guerrera! (pinfall, flipping DDT, 25:19)
Backstage: Brock Lesnar gives a short promo about HBK's fluke victory at NCWF IV: A New Hope. He has a plan to retain the championship tonight.
Match 5: TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: Los Guerreros Del Infierno (Ultimo Guerrera y Rey Bucanero) (c) vs. Joey Matthews and Christian York - ULTIMATE X MATCH
Backstory: These two teams first met at NCWF I: Rumble In The Bronx in the Finals of a tag team tournament. Matthews and York won the match, and was able to name the stipulation for the tag team title match at NCWF III, which was a TLC match. Before that, though, at NCWF II, these two teams teamed up to face The Havana Pitbulls and Danny Doring and Roadkill in an 8 man elimination match. They proved that the two teams could not co-exist, with Rocky Romero being the sole survivor and getting the win for his side.
At NCWF III, Los Guerreros Del Infierno won the tag team championships in an epic tag team match, despite Matthews and York having more experience in that kind of environment. At NCWF IV, LGDI successfully retained their titles, while Matthews and York won a Number One Contenders Match.
Highlights: Matthews delievers a Neckbreacker onto Guerrero who was attempting to grab the belts while on the cables. Bucanero hits York with a head scissors. Lots of high spots. Finish comes when Bucanero, Guerrero, and Matthews are hanging from the cable, when York pulls down Guerrero and is able to hold onto Bucanero long enough for Matthews to retrieve the titles and win the championship!
Winners AND NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: JOEY MATTHEWS AND CHRISTIAN YORK (Title retrieval, 19:47)
Backstage: HBK delivers a promo promising that his title win was not a fluke.
MATCH 6: INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP: Jamie Noble (c) vs. Black Tiger IV vs. Perry Saturn vs. British Bulldog vs. Barry Windham vs. Little Guido - KING OF THE MOUNTAIN MATCH
Backstory: Jamie Noble and Black Tiger IV were the finalists for the IC Title. After a great effort, Noble defeated Black Tiger IV in a 2 out of 3 Falls Match to become the first champion. Saturn, Windham, Guido, and Bulldog all won qualifying matches while Black Tiger IV was given a spot due to the awesome match he and Noble put on at NCWF IV.
Highlights: At some point in the match, all competitors pinned another competitor after their finishing move, making them all eligible to win the match. The big move of the match was when Guido, with the championship, was ascending the ladder when Black Tiger IV leaps from the top knock Guido out with a stiff kick to the face and also taking out himself as well. The finish comes when Noble pulls Windham's arm through a ladder rung, and locking in a submission hold. Upon letting go of the submission, Windham fell to the ring, clutching his injured arm, and Noble was able to raise the championship to retain.
Winner and STILL Intercontinental Champion: Jamie Noble (belt hanging, 20:41)
Palmer Cannon comes out to assure the fans they will see a winner in the main event. If there is a tie, then SUDDEN DEATH rules apply IMMEDIATELY following the 60 minute mark.
Match 7: WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Shawn Michaels (c) vs. Brock Lesnar (w/ Eddie Gilbert) - 60 MINUTE IRON MAN MATCH
Backstory: Shawn Michaels and Brock Lesnar were the last two competitors in the Royal Rumble. Lesnar, with a little outside help from Gilbert, eliminated HBK, winning the championship. Michaels got a title shot at NCWF II, but fell to Brock Lesnar again. After Michaels pinned Gilbert in a tag team match and Lesnar won a 4 way bout, Michaels challenged Lesnar again, this time in a Hell in a Cell Match. During the match, Brock Lesnar had HBK on top of the cell and hit the F5 - the top of the cage broke and both competitors fell to the ring. HBK landed on top of Lesnar, and won the title. Lesnar is claiming a fluke win and is invoking his rematch clause, HBK wants to prove this is no fluke and told Lesnar to bring it in an Iron Man Match.
Highlights: Fall 1 - Brock Lesnar pins HBK after an F5 (15:47) Brock 1, HBK 0 Fall 2 - HBK fits a flying elbow drop and pins Brock Lesnar (20:54) Brock 1, HBK 1 Fall 3 - Lesnar locks HBK in the Brock Lock and forces HBK to submit (25:12) Brock 2, HBK 1 Fall 4 - Lesnar hits HBK with a BEAUTIFUL Shooting Star Press and pins him (35:24) Brock 3, HBK 1 Fall 5 - After a short HBK comeback, Lesnar nails HBK in the head with a chair, disqualifying him (38:00) Brock 3, HBK 2 Fall 6 - Lesnar then pins HBK after the chairshot (38:23) Brock 4, HBK 2 Fall 7 - HBK reverses Lesnars F5 attempt into the Crippler Crossface, which Brock submits to! (53:59) Brock 4, HBK 3 Fall 8 - With seven minutes left, Brock powders out and avoids making contact with HBK. However, when Brock has to slide into the ring to avoid a CO, HBK pounces. Brock, someone who values his pride, decides not to take the pussy way out and goes at it with HBK. With 10 seconds left, HBK hits SWEET CHIN MUSIC on Brock! He has to cover him! HBK gets over to cover Brock....AND the referee counts three JUST as time expires! (59:59) Brock 4, HBK 4 Sudden Death: Both men, exhausted, both try to hit their big moves. HBK misses a flying top rope elbow, Lesnar misses a shooting star press. Finish comes when Brock catches HBK's Sweet Chin Music attempts, spins himaround, bounces off the rope for a devastating clothesline and WHAM! is hit with an out of nowhere SWEET CHIN MUSIC! HBK PINS BROCK TO RETAIN! (67:45) Brock 4, HBK 5.
WINNER AND STILL NCWF WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION: SHAWN MICHAELS!
And now presenting the match line up for NCWF VI: The Half Blood Prince
Main Event Title Unification Crusierweight Championship vs. Heavyweight Championship Juventud Guerrera vs. Shawn Michaels
Backstory: After HBK's epic win over Brock Lesnar, the champion comes out on NCWF Televsion to make a celebratory speech. HBK is interupted by the new Crusierweight Champion, Juventud Guerrera. The Juice makes it known that HBK is at or below the weight limit to be a heavyweight, and as such, Guerrera feels that HBK should forfeit his heavyweight title and move down a weight class. HBK says is not giving up his championship. Guerrera then says if HBK won't give up his championship, he'll just have to take it. HBK says he never backs down from a challenge, but if he is going to put something on the line, then Juvi needs to put his title on the line as well.
Palmer Cannon comes out and tries to dissaude both men from challenging each other. He wants both titles to be equal, similar to the way all of the UFC World Titles are equal.
Juvi says "When's the last time in wrestling a Crusierweight Championship was on the same page at a Heavyweight Championship? Never! But that will change when The Juice takes and unifies both titles to become the World Undisputed Champion!"
HBK says "I have all the respect in the world for the Crusierweight Championship. They have great competitors and wonderful matches. With that being said, I don't say no to a challenge. If Juvi wants to fight me for my title, I'll gladly put it on the line and I'll be willing to take his title too.
The match is then set - who is the true undisputed champion of the world?
Tag Team Championship Jinsei Shinzaki/Yuji Nagata vs. Los Guerreros Del Infierno vs. Joey Matthews and Christian York (c)
Backstory: Shinzaki and Nagata won a number one contenders match. Los Guerreros Del Infierno are invoking their rematch clause.
Intercontinental Championship Jamie Noble vs. Jack Swagger
Backstory: Swagger, after defeating Lashley at BALBOA, wants the belt. Noble is a fighting champion who will take on all challengers.
Steel Cage Match Bobby Lashley vs. Brock Lesnar
Backstory: Brock is the best MMA fighter in the world. Lashley thinks he is better. This match will be settled in a cage.
Tables Elimination Match Steve Blackman, Davey Boy Smith, Perry Saturn, & Rick Steiner vs. Kevin Sullivan, Roadkill, Danny Doring, and Eddie Gilbert
Backstory: Steve Blackman got his revenge on Kevin Sullivan, but Sullivan doesn't know when to quit. Sullivan, along with Sullivan's Slaughterhouse members Roadkill and Danny Doring, recruit Eddie Gilbert from Hot Stuff International to wage a full-scale bloodbath against Blackman. Blackman, who already is on friendly terms with Rick Steiner, recruits Davey Boy Smith and Perry Saturn, all of which have a problem with Gilbert from his alliance with Brock Lesnar.
When Tag Teams Explode But No One Knows About It Black Tiger IV (aka Rocky Romero) vs. Ricky Reyes
Backstory: Reyes and Romero are the Havana Pittbulls The Pitbulls are a tremendous tag team....that haven't done a damn thing in the NCWF. They have lost nearly every match, despite their talent. Romero, who is secretly Black Tiger IV, is suffering from being booked two (and on some occasions three) times a night. Reyes notices that both Black Tiger IV and Romero seem to wrestle a similar style and both seem to be a step slower when they both wrestle on the same card. Reyes wants to challenge Black Tiger IV to a match, asking that his friend Rocky Romero accompany him to ringside. Romero, of course, is Black Tiger IV. How will this turn out? Will Romero be forced to reveal that he is, in fact, Black Tiger IV?
Exhibition Match Little Guido vs. Barry Windham
Backstory: Both men came up short in their quest for the Intercontinental Championship. Windham is nursing a sore arm from the King of the Mountain Match. Guido and his band of comedy thugs JT Smith and Johnny Stamboli, try to bully Windham around. Windham will have none of it. Nothing but pride on the line here, but winner could be in line for an IC Title shot in the future.
Exhibition Match Psicosis vs. Julio Dinero
Backstory: Psicosis came up just short in the Crusierweight Championship match at BALBOA. He wanted to challenge Juvi to a rematch, but Juvi instead challenged HBK. Psicosis wants to get back in the championship title hunt. Julio Dinero just wants to get on the card. He knows he has talent, but he feels he isn't be presented with the opportunity.
So, to sum up, here is your card:
Title vs. Title: HBK vs. Juvi Tag Team Title Match: York and Matthews (c) vs. Nagata and Shinzaki vs. Bucanero and Guerrero IC Title Match: Noble vs. Swagger Steel Cage Match: Lesnar vs. Lashley Tables Elimination Match: Team Blackman (Steve Blackman, Perry Saturn, Davey Boy Smith, Rick Steiner) vs. Sullivans Hot Stuff Slaughterhouse (Kevin Sullivan, Eddie Gilbert, Danny Doring, Roadkill) Black Tiger IV vs. Ricky Reyes Little Guido vs. Barry Windham Psicosis vs. Julio Dinero
I like it, I'm glad you finished it off. I had a trade wth Byrne that didn't happen as he had to finish a few things first. So that story is left untold.
World Title (3 Stages of Hell-No DQ, I Quit, Hell in a Cell): (C) Melissa Anderson w/Prince Nana vs. Mickie James
I Quit followed by HitC seems like a bit much. BUT, it is the blowoff to a feud that you did a great job building. And it is called "Three Stages of HELL," not "Three Stages of Inconvenience." So I'm okay with it.
You took on the toughest challenge (all female) and did a great job. Looking forward to seeing what you do this year.
Going from a guy who was lucky to have drawn Gator in the first round to advance to finals is amazing. Winning against Eco, who's fed I would have most likely watched out of all the feds, was unbelieavable.
Thank you to everyone who voted for me. Thanks to Eco for not going down without a fight. Thanks for Serg for not only pimping Eco's card so strongly (which it derserved), but also motivating me to make the best damn card possible so I could defeat Eco. Thanks to Lucky for running this. And thanks to everyone else for their creativity and their hard work.
This is a great, great honor. I've never won anything PH related (unless you count the OOWF World Title) so this was fun. I can't wait til the next related darft thingy.
Although, I'm shocked that Solly didn't win this. I know it was me vs Eco, but I saw his name somewhere in the thread and slipped a vote in for him.
Both years I had him sitting on my list of potentials but both years it came down to the reality that I don't know him as much more than rep and there's clear evidence that that era of guys don't appeal to the masses here.
For the 3 of you who might be remotely interested in how this was going to play out, I give you a few highlights:
-Demonic Insanity beats the bWo in essentially a walkover as the bWo refuses to participate. The item on a pole was a polar bear, and the bWo refused to go anywhere near the cage. (Stevie Ray: "I ain't afraid of no yaks, but I'm damn scared shitless by bears.) President Ramu and the rest of her team celebrate by tearing the bear limb-from-limb and bathing in its blood.
-Vince Russo hands the next match stipulation to the growing-irate-at-the-ridiculousness-of-things Eric Bischoff. Bischoff snaps at the revelation that it's a polio-on-a-pole match. This leads to an impromptu match between Russo and Bischoff. I have no idea who would have won, but it certainly wouldn't have been the fans.
-The polio-on-a-pole match commences between the hWo and the Natural Born Thrillers. Highly contested back-and-forth matchup until Chuck Palumbo feigns homo-ness only to turn on the rest of the gaylords when their backs are turned.
-During the final intermission, the fans are given a poll on who they think will win the main event. This leads straight into the final match with a poll-on-a-pole.
-Sean O'Haire is quadruple-teamed by the members of Demonic Insanity right off the bat and is a non-factor for most of the match. Still, after some heavy back-and-forth, the NBT manage to gain the upper hand. As they're about to scale the final cage and grab the poll-on-a-pole, the lights flicker into strobe mode for 10 seconds, and Bobby Heenan appears on top of the second cage in front of the NBT! The NBT walks him down, but he stops them in their place and points for them to turn around. Sean O'Haire, now in full face paint, repels down a zipline and kicks Chuck Palumbo off the second tier and down onto the remains of the previously demolished announce table. He then turns to Reno and delivers a massive Widowmaker, causing Reno's body to tumble all the way down to the entrance ramp. Mike Sanders is standing there, mouth agape, and O'Haire delivers a picture-perfect Vertebreaker, planting Sanders firmly on top of the second level. O'Haire climbs up to the third level, postures for the crowd, and flies into Sanders with a Seanton Bomb. The rest of Demonic Insanity rush over to Sanders and toss him off the cage. They all scale to the top level, President Ramu, The Demon, The ICP, Sean O'Haire, and Bobby Heenan. They grab the poll and celebrate demonically as the pyro goes batshit insane.
The scene opens with a majestic view of the Johnson Space Center outside of Houston, Texas. Sporting matching Blue Blazers and khaki slacks, Marc Lowrence & Bill Mercer walk in from off camera holding old style wired microphones.
ML: Good evening wrestling fans. We are coming to you today from the Historic Johnson Space Center to preview a card that will truly be out of this world. Bill,
BM: You said it Marc. So many things need to be settled at Blast Off. We’re here today to run down the card and get you ready for this pay-per-view MEGA event.
ML: When we left “Last Stand” last month David Von Erich had just been awarded the main event by DQ. That made two straight pay-per-view main events that David had won by DQ thanks to Tully Blanchard. David was fed up and challenged Blanchard to a match. Blanchard happily accepted, and with the look he had, you got the feeling he had goaded David into doing Exactly what Tully had wanted. Then here came Dory Funk Jr. HE was furious with both Tully for interfering when Dory had David’s shoulders down for well past a 3 count; AND mad at David for not immediately granting him a rematch when David had lectured Dory the previous month about Honor. The three men seemed ready to tear down my interview area, when who else walks in the picture? Ric Flair. The Television champion rambled on about how since he was the biggest star in the company, and that he was only the Television Champion because LSW didn’t have a Hollywood Champion HE deserved the title match with David at Blast Off Dory spouted off how he had pinned Flair clean just 2 months ago, where Flair replied “Pal. One of us has a gold belt around their waist. And one of us has to wear suspenders from the five and dime” Tully meanwhile was accusing Davind of ducking him and the whole scene broke down until security came and broke it up. Moments later we got word that the LSW management had decided to break new ground, and have the first ever Four-Way Elimination Match for the World Heavyweight Championship featuring Dory Funk Jr, Tully Blanchard, Television Champion Ric Flair challenging World Champion David Von Erich
BM: That was certainly unprecedented. Also unprecedented was the finish to the Brass Knuckles match at Last Stand. Both Manny Fernandez & Thunderbolt Patterson covered Black Bart for the 3 count. And the official, unsure of what to do declared both men the winner. Obviously, the 2 men can’t share the title, and so it was quickly decided to have a winner-take-all match at Blast Off Well, Manny hasn’t stopped running his mouth ever since and as good and easy-going a guy as Thunderbolt is, he got to a breaking point and he and Manny just last week had a free-for-all battle backstage that prompted management to issue an order for a Brass Knuckles Title – Last Man Standing Match between ”The Raging Bull” Manny Fernandez and Thunderbolt Patterson for the Astrodome.
ML: another situation that has gotten just way out of hand is the resurrection of the Freebirds/Von Erichs rivalry. Kevin and Michael Hayes were out here talking about both groups recent troubles with the Titanium Trio. Hayes and Kevin seemed to be on the same page, ready to team up and about to shake hands when suddenly Parsons and Garvin came in from out of nowhere and beat Kevin down. By the time Kerry and Mike were able to come to their brother’s aid, Kevin had been bruised and bloodied pretty severly. He hasn’t competed since, but Kerry and Mike both swear that Kevin will be 100% and ready to go in Houston where The Freebirds (Michael “P.S. Hayes, “Iceman” King Parsons, & “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin w/ Precious) defend their World Six-Man Tag Team Titles against Kevin, Kerry & Mike Von Erich
BM: another Von Erich with a score to settle is Fritz. He hasn’t seen eye to eye with his sons here in LSW for a very long time, but when Dory Funk Sr was out here calling David a paper champion and pointing out how Dory Jr had him beat last week if the referee would have been in position. Fritz’s family pride swelled up. As Senior encouraged Junior to go out and “prove the family Legacy” Fritz came out and began to expound how great His family legacy was as well, and as seems to happen all the time around here, words turned into a physical confrontation. So in Houston Fritz Von Erich will take on Dory Funk Sr in a battle of family patriarchs.
ML: and folks, there’s still a lot more wrestling action to talk about! We saw how in the melees during Last Stand that The Dynamic Duo kept focusing their efforts on The Japanese Invasion. That rivalry will come to a head this month at Blast Off as The Dynamic Duo (Chris Adams & Gino Hernandez) take on The Japanese Invasion (Genichiro Tenryu & Jumbo Tsuruta) for the World Tag Team Titles
More tag team gold at stake as well, where the Border Patrol (Jose Lothario & Chavo Guerrero) challenge John Tatum & Jack Victory for the Texas Tag Team Titles The Border patrol is undefeated so far as a team. Victory and Tatum broke a long losing streak right before winning the belts and have a lot of momentum as well. Something here folks, just has to give.
BM: Wahoo McDaniel will be defending his newly acquired Southwest Championship against Darin Childs. Both men are renown for their brawling ability, but this is a regulation match. Will they be able to keep things in the ring?
ML: All this action Plus the reuniting of Dusty Rhodes and Dick Murdoch as The Outlaws. The Fantastics will be in Houston, along with The Missing Link, Brian Adias, Al Perez and more.
BM: So join us fans for Blast Off Coming to you from The Astrodome in Houstin Texas. We’ll see you at the matches!

Quick results as I'm going out of town in a couple of hours
Brock d. HBK Number 1 contenders match ended in a no contest when Eddie Gilbert and Jack Swagger interfered. Rocky Romero was the sole survivor for his team. Blackman defeats Abdullah. Afterwards, Sullivan berates Abdullah, leading to Abdullah going to attack Sullivan. Rick Steiner makes the save. Noble over Swagger Juvi over Yuji Psicosis over Guido Black Tiger IV over Shinzaki
Sorry about the brevity of the results, but I'm in a hurry.
Handicap Squash Match: The Skyscrapers vs. The Gambler
Spivey clothesline decapitates Gambler at the bell. Big boot from Sid. Double chokeslam. And Sid hits the release spinning powerbomb (seen at 0:38 of this video) to finish at 0:58. Spivey has some strong words for the camera after the match and Sid says he's God or something otherwise incomprehensible.
"Rugged" Ronnie Garvin vs. "Red Dogg" Rodney Mack (w/ Slick)
This one's just a slugfest, and a stiff one at that, with both guys potatoing each other at some point during the match. Finish sees Garvin escape the Blackout with a jawbreaker, but Slick interrupts the Garvin Stomp to draw a cheap DQ at 7:08. Garvin lines up the Slickster for the Hands of Stone, but Mack spears Garvin before he can execute, and the heels slither away.
Larry Zbyszko vs. Hardcore Holly
Zbyszko isn't happy about Hardcore hanging him out to dry last week. In a pre-match interview, Holly tells Pamela Paulshock that he's gonna "kick the shit out of that little bastard." Larry stalls (go figure) and Hardcore ends up chasing him to get things going. Zbyszko cheats to get ahead, ramming Hardcore into an exposed turnbuckle. After a brief rally from Holly, Zbyszko cheats again and looks for the standing figure four. But Holly kicks him off, directly into the exposed turnbuckle, and Larry stumbles right back into the Alabama Slam. Hardcore gives him a second one just for the hell of it and gets the pin at 9:45.
#1 Contender Match for the OSW Tag Team Titles: The Rock & Roll Express vs. Ahmed Johnson & Nikita Koloff
Strength vs. speed is the game here. "The Black Russian" murders Ricky & Robert, and Nikita tells Ahmed to settle down and not get blown up a minute into the match. Sure enough, the RnR's use his overzealousness to their advantage, getting some misdirection going and getting him turned around. Nikita tags in to get some control. Koloff doesn't fall for the same tricks, and a snap belly to belly suplex kills Ricky dead in the middle of the ring. The Russians treat Morton like a ragdoll and throw him all over the place. Ricky blades for the hell of it. Hot tag to Robert after some Russian miscommunication, and Gibson is a house of fire! Crucifix rollup on Ahmed, broken up by Nikita, and the Sickle accidentally takes out referee Nick Patrick. Pearl River Plunge on Gibson... but there's no ref. Ricky tries a crossbody, but Ahmed catches him and slings him over the top with a fallaway slam. Doomsday Device and Gibson is a corpse at this point. The Russians give up on a pin attempt just as Patrick begins to stir, and Nikita goes to the apron. Ahmed sees Morton dragging himself to the apron, blood everywhere, but when Ahmed goes to suplex him in, he walks back into Gibson - simply getting to his knees himself - and trips, and Ricky falls on top for the three count at 21:13 as Nikita turns around and can't believe it!
Terri Runnels interviews Doink the Clown. Terri with some fluff questions, such as "why are you so mean to the fans?" Doink gives some cryptic answers as he takes the interview to the floor, and then covers Mark Madden with a bucket of confetti. Terri asks for some clarification, and gets a bucket of water for her trouble - drawing a big pop from the male audience. Terri tries to somewhat cover up, and Mongo, of all people, gives her his Bears jacket and they leave together.
Boxing Match: Floyd "Money" Mayweather (w/ Slick) vs. Butterbean
Mayweather and Slick talk a whole bunch of shit to Pamela Paulshock before the bout - with Mayweather telling Pam that she needs to let Doink douse her in water cause she's on fire. Floyd stalls at the bell, and it's clear he's gonna have to use his speed and smarts to stay away from the brawler. First round sees Mayweather work the jab and stay away, and Butterbean can't keep up, only landing some glancing body shots. Butterbean rallies in the second finally getting Mayweather into the corner, and Floyd gets saved by the bell. Slick cuts the laces off Floyd's right glove and talks him up. Butterbean stalks Mayweather at the bell, and as soon as he sneaks around Floyd's jab, Slick hops up on the apron and yells at Butterbean. Referee Patrick steps between them, but the diversion allows Mayweather to get the right glove all the way off and manage to get a pair of brass knuckles on. Butterbean turns around... but DUCKS the big punch, and Mayweather eats a HUGE right hook to the jaw and that's it. Butterbean, KO 3.
OSW Tag Team Championship: The Midnight Express vs. The Brisco Bros.
Old school tag match if there ever was one. The champs want to speed things up, the challengers want to take things to the mat and make the match a grind. Just a fabulous tag team match with all sorts of cool double team stuff, too much to recap. The Midnights go with heel-styled offense but limit the cheating to hair pulling and tights grabbing, keeping it a relatively clean match. Heat segments on both Jack and Jerry before the big finish. Stereo figure fours get a big pop from the crowd, but Bobby manages to wiggle across the ring and rake Jack's eyes to free Stan, who subsequently breaks Jerry's hold. Rocket Launcher MISSES, and Bobby's hurt. Jerry tries a double underhook suplex, but Stan backdrops him to the floor. Jack takes advantage of Bobby's hurt state and pushes him to the ropes and rolls him up from the back... but Stan sneaks back around and pops him with a superkick, allowing Bobby to roll through and get the pin to retain at 29:21.
Las Vegas Strip Club Match: The Godfather vs. Pacman Jones (No DQ match actually takes place in a Nevada strip club)
Absolute garbage brawl, with the added bonus of naked women all over the place and dancing music playing the entire time. Too much ridiculousness to recap - drinks in faces, broken bottles, high heels, getting choked out with a bra. The finish sees Pacman send Godfather to the dancing pole, and then Pacman MAKES IT RAIN, but when he realizes he's dropping Benjamins and not singles, Jones bends down to grab his cash... allowing Godfather to come back and DDT him on the stage for the pin after 12:00 or so of very entertaining crap.
Five on Five Elimination Tag Match: Sgt. Slaughter, Ken Shamrock, The Big Bossman, Tank Abbott, & "Z-Man" Tom Zenk vs. The Stud Stable (Robert Fuller, Buddy Rogers, "Dr. Death" Steve Williams, Terry Gordy, & 911) w/ Lady Blossom
911 is the first one gone, via Tank Abbott right hand at 4:03. Sarge and Fuller both get counted out while brawling into the crowd. So the captains are gone. 4-3 good guys. Donnybrook culminates in Lady Blossom stealing Bossman's nightstick, sliding it to Gordy for the KO on Tank, tying things up. Rogers and the MVC work over Zenk. Hot tag Bossman and Buddy eats the Bossman Slam. Shenanigans break up the pin, and the sequence ends up with a brawl on the floor, but Doc finds Fuller's cane left at ringside and breaks it over Bossman's head. Oklahoma Slam finishes just in case. 3-2 Stud Stable. Shamrock goes crazy on the floor, even shoving Lady Blossom down - momentarily displacing the top of her dress if you get the drift, nearly giving Madden a heart attack. Z-Man hits Rogers with the missile dropkick in the ring, but Gordy kills him dead with the DDT. Rogers drapes an arm over Zenk to get the pin, and Shamrock's in trouble with a 3-1 deficit. But the World's Most Dangerous Man rallies after an extended heat segment, eliminating Gordy with an anklelock out of nowhere. Rogers charges in and eats a hurricanrana. Doc steps in and Ken tells him to bring it, but that allows Rogers to clip his knee. Figure four, but Shamrock gets the ropes. Another try, and Shamrock cradles him for the pin to even it up!! Doc comes in and pounds Shamrock down. Some false finishes, and Williams wants the Oklahoma Slam, but Shamrock falls off the back, shoves Doc into the turnbuckle and rolls him up for the three count at 38:56!! Shamrock is your SOLE SURVIVOR!! That doesn't sit well with the heels, who immediately rush the ring and commence a 5 on 1 asskicking of Shamrock before Sarge and the Army come down and clear the ring.
OSW Championship, DQ Rule Waived: Mr. Perfect vs. The Undertaker (if Perfect gets DQ'ed, he loses the title)
Taker chases while Perfect tries to outsmart him - story of the match. Perfect pulls Taker down off of Old School and looks for the Perfectplex, but Taker blocks and lifts him straight up into a Death Valley Driver. Perfect dodges the Dead Man clothesline, and Patrick gets bumped. Hennig calls in the backup, and sure enough, here come the Midnights, but UT disposes of them quickly, and Perfect sells a big boot to the floor. Then Taker GOES MEDIEVAL with the NO HANDS OVER THE TOP ROPE PLANCHA~! The heels are toast. Back in and it's the Last Ride for Perfect. Stan hops on the apron with a tag belt, but the Rock & Roll Express run in and break that up! Taker sees the belt, picks it up and chunks it... but referee Patrick sees a KO'ed Hennig and Taker tossing a foreign object and puts two and two together and CALLS FOR THE BELL?? Oh man, the crowd is PISSED, and unfortunately for Nick Patrick, so is Undertaker, who chokeslams Patrick straight to hell. Last Ride for Sweet Stan, and Last Ride for Beautiful Bobby. Before Hennig can scurry away like a cockroach, Taker grab him by the hair and tosses him over the top to the floor. And it's a TOMBSTONE THRU THE ANNOUNCE TABLE. It looks like a war zone as Taker does his thing as we fade out.
Pyro! Lasers! Rock music! And we're underway! AWESOME!
William Shatner and Don West are at the announce table, and welcome you to the PPV.
As Rory Fox and Lash Leroux make their way to the ring, a recap package is shown in which Kung Fu Chicken Noodle and The Zombie accidentally received Rory's delivery bag in a mix up at the airport but refused to return it because Zombie fell in love with it. Aww. Anyway, the bag is hanging above the ring as Kung Fu Chicken Noodle and The Zombie (accompanied by Dr. Cube) make their way down the ramp. Dr. Cube and his posse try to cheat, but... long story short they fail and Rory climbs the ladder and gets his dumb delivery bag back.
Backstage Jason Sensation interviews Goldust about accepting Colt Cabana's open challenge. Traci Brooks wanders by and tells Goldust that there'll be NO "funny business" in that match tonight... like specifically no boob touching. Goldust says that if she wants to touch his boobs, it's okay with him. Jason Sensation takes him up on the offer. Goldust is totally cool with that. Yuck.
We return to the announce table where Shatner is in the middle of complaining to Don West about how he wasn't asked to be in the latest "Star Track" movie. Don West nods his head and creepily licks his lips.
The teams of Kronik (Wrath & Brian Adams), Dr. Cube's Posse (Gene "The Minion" Snitsky & Glacier), The Meat Masters (Shawn Stasiak & Chris Masters), and Puerto Rico's Chicos (Gran Apolo & Hector Garza) all make their way to the ring for the 4-Team Elimination Tag Match for a Shot at the Awesome Tag Championship. Garza and Apolo seem to be arguing about something, but it's impossible to tell what because they're speaking spanish. Don West explains that 4 men are in the ring at a time. Once a man has been pinned, his partner takes his place. Regular Tag rules apply. The first four in the ring are: Masters, Apolo, Adams and Snitsky. They clobber each other for a while until everyone gangs up on Masters, Snitsky choke slams him while Adams jumps on for the pin. The rest of the eliminations go as follows: Stasiak by Snitsky, Glacier by Apolo, Apolo by Wrath, Snitsky by Wrath, Adams by Garza. Garza and Wrath are the only two left in the ring when Garza's pregnant sister comes running out to the ring crying. He's distracted for an instant, is powerbombed by Wrath and pinned. Slick counts the 1-2-3.
Garza, visibly upset, is yelling at his sister. Apolo comes back out and stands in between them pleading with Garza to calm down. Garza grabs a mic and yells for Lash Leroux to get the fuck out here and marry his sister right now. Lash comes out from the back sheepishly, but is being pushed by Rory Fox to go through with it. William Shatner, an internet-ordained reverend, starts to get up from the announce table (OH NO, LUCKY!) but Apolo can take no more. He grabs the mic and tells Garza that he doesn't care whose baby his sister is carrying, he's in love with her and wants to marry her! Garza is torn, but takes the mic back and exclaims that they're going to solve this the old fashioned way... next month Apolo will face Leroux for the right to marry his sister! Leroux faints.
Backstage, Acting Commissioner Scott D'Amore is finishing up a conversation with Disco Inferno about how his match against Kanyon and Morrus ISN'T a dance-off like he was lead to believe and that he better go "get in the zone" because his match is coming up real soon. As Disco leaves, AJ Styles and Austin Aries come in and say that tonight Aries will get the X-title and along with the Super-Awesome Champion AJ Styles they plan on forming Team Super-Awesome and going after the Awesome Tag Team Championship at the next PPV. D'Amore appreciates their ambition, but reminds them that Kronik just won a chance at the title next month. AJ says that as Super-Awesome Champion, he should have the clout to make it a triple threat. D'Amore agrees. Team Super-Awesome leaves happy.
Colt Cabana comes to the ring and grabs a mic. He tells Goldust to get his shiny butt out here so that they can get this show on the road and raise the average on the internet star ratings from where they probably are right now. He's guessing 1.5 at best. Goldust comes down the ramp and pauses at referee Traci Brooks who gets all creeped out. The match starts with the typical lock-ups, etc... eventually degrading into a bunch of hilarious comedy spots like Goldust butt-humping Cababna, Cabana and Goldust dosidoing around the ring, and Cabana "accidentally" grabbing Traci Brooks' boobs. Goldust eventually gets a sneaky roll-up on Cabana, being the first to win the Cabana challenge. They shake hands and leave together, mostly talking about Traci's boobs.
A recap package is played showing how Mortis accidentally got punched in the face by Snitsky, snapping him out of Dr. Cube's mind control. He re-debuts tonight as Chris Kanyon.
Backstage Jason Sensation is with Kanyon who says he'd like to thank Brian Pillman for helping him clear the cobwebs and getting him refocused on wrestling... as strange as that sounds. Pillman comes on screen and starts yelling at AJ that he's still got a fuzzy head from that brass-knucks cheap-shot he gave him last month, but he has no problem remembering what a punk Styles is and how much he's looking forward to beating the shit out of him tonight. Not once, but twice. Kanyon thanks Pillman again, shakes his hand, but says he's got a match to get to. Pillman holds on to his hand and tells him to show those dicks out in that ring no mercy. He says Kanyon's been a good friend to him over the last couple of weeks and says that if Kanyon has his back and he beats Styles tonight Kanyon gets the first title shot. Kanyon smiles, nods, and leaves.
Chris Kanyon comes down to the ring. Hugh Morrus comes to the ring and grabs a mic, he explains to Disco that when he said "let's dance" in reference to the International Notorious American Awesome Satellite Radio Championship, he thought that it implied "fighting", not actual dancing. Disco Inferno shakes and shimmies his way down to the ring and instantly gets double teamed by Morrus and Kanyon. As Disco lays prone, outside of the ring, Slick shrugs his shoulders and rings the bell. Kanyon and Morrus do a lot of agile-for-big-men spots, until Disco comes to. Disco crawls into the ring and eats a moonsault from Morrus before he even knows where he is. Kanyon and Morrus brawl for a little while longer until Morrus gets a sneaky roll-up on Kanyon, which Disco breaks up. Disco throws Morrus out of the ring. As Disco and Kanyon fight, Austin Aries makes his way down to the ring. Morrus and Slick are distracted, telling Aries to leave. With their backs turned, AJ Styles sneaks into the ring from the crowd, hits the StylesClash on Kanyon, and sneaks back out. Aries backs off, Disco takes advantage of Kanyon's weakened state and Slick counts the 1-2-3.
Disco dances his way back to the back while Styles and Aries enter the ring. AJ grabs a mic and yells at Kanyon, "Whose got Pillman's back? NOBODY!" Aries and Styles start beating down Kanyon until Pillman runs out with a shotgun and a trident and scares them off. They run up the ramp, but up there, Scott D'Amore pops out and stops Aries. D'Amore tells him that he was happy to do a favor for two talents like Aries and AJ by granting them a tag title shot at next month's PPV. But now he's gotta do HIM a favor. A talent like Aries should be on the show for as long as possible. Aries agrees. So because of that, D'Amore give Aries the first slot in the 10- Man Awesome X Gauntlet Match for the Awesome X Title! Aries is less than pleased. D'Amore also takes this time to introduce Aries' first opponent, D'Amore's "best buddy" Matt Bentley. Bentley comes out and is also less than pleased.
Don West and Bill Shatner explain that in the X Gauntlet, two competitors start in the ring and each time a submission or pinfall is counted, a new competitor comes out to wrestle in his place until the final man faces off against the champion, Delirious.
Just to make sure things go as smoothly as possible, D'Amore is going to ref this match as well! Austin Aries and Matt Bentley reluctantly face off and go through a couple of great sequences until Traci Brooks runs out and distracts D'Amore allowing Bentley to whoops... MISS a chairshot on Aries, leading to Aries laying out Bentley with a brainbuster and getting the pin. Next out is Jimmy Yang who is eliminated by Aries with a 450 splash. Next out are Chase Stevens, Alex Koslov, and Kaz Hayashi... all of whom get eliminated by a now very tired Aries. Next out is "Rock Hard" Duane Houston who charges into the ring and starts beating on Aries who is almost too tired to defend himself. At one point, "Rock Hard" tosses Aries to the floor and gets in the face of D'Amore. D'Amore shoves him off and reminds him that he's the ref. "Rock Hard" shoves him gives him the two finger salute and then tries to go for a Rock Hard Cutter, but D'Amore blocks it... CANADIAN DESTROYER from D'Amore! Aries crawls back into the ring and gets the pin. Nova is next out, and while Aries puts up a good fight, he gets eliminated with a Kryptonite Krunch from the top rope. Andy Douglas is the next to last competitor to come down, and after some great flippy-floppy action Nova eliminates him as well with the Novacaine. Delirious comes out onto the stage with Dr. Cube and the rest of the Posse. Delirious grabs a mic and spouts some unintelligible nonsense for about a minute before Dr. Cube grabs the mic and tells Nova that if he joins the Posse, Delirious will lay down and let him have the X-Title. D'Amore grabs a mic and tells Cube that if he and the Posse don't get the hell outta here AND that if Delirious doesn't get his crazy ass down to the ring in 3 seconds, he's losing the tile via DQ. Delirious charges the ring and Dr. Cube and company leave. Nova and Delirious go back and forth with quite a few near falls, but in the end, Nova manages to beat Delirious with an Elevator Drop Power Bomb. NEW AWESOME X DIVISION CHAMP!
Backstage, Jason Sensation is interviewing Pillman and Kanyon about what happened earlier in the night. Pillman flips out saying that if anyone interferes in his match tonight he's gonna kill somebody. Kanyon tries to calm him down, but it isn't working. Pillman is tearing up lighting rigs and catering tables.
A recap of how Red Faction (Amazing Red & Blitzkrieg) won a ladder match last month for a shot at the Awesome Tag Championship. Traci's boobs popping out was prominently featured.
Red Faction (Amazing Red & Blitzkrieg) come down to the ring and wait on Beer Money LLC (Robert Roode & James Storm) to come out. Many lasers and pyrotechnics later, Beer Money comes down to the ring. Storm appears drunker than usual, and Roode appears rather irritated. Storm sort of slumps over in the corner as Roode takes the opening lock-up. After several sequences against both opponents, Roode begins to get frustrated by Red Faction's speed. Every time he's close to a tag, Storm either isn't paying attention or looks too sick to move. Red and Blitzkrieg, sensing the victory could be well in hand, start showing off some high-flying prowess. Unfortunately, Red tries a high-risk top-rope maneuver a little too close to Storm (who "magically" snaps out of it) and shoves Red from the top rope back-first down onto the guardrail. He and Roode point and laugh at the little guy laying in a lump on the outside. Roode works over Blitzkrieg a bit and then tags in Storm. He hits the Eye of the Storm for a 2 count as Red groggily returns to the ring Apron. Storm takes on both guys for a while until he tags in Roode. Roode, now brimming with over confidence almost gets pinned in a surprise roll-up. All hell breaks loose as all 4 men are in the ring, but eventually Beer Money hit the DWI for the win. James Storm grabs a beer and steals a kiss from referee Traci Brooks. He's smooth like that.
A recap package is shown explaining how Styles and Aries have been gunning for all the gold in the ACAWF and how they're doing their best to fuck with Brian Pillman however they can.
Brian Pillman comes out on the stage and sends Kanyon off to the back and tells him to stay there. AJ Styles comes out by himself and enters the ring. Mark "Slick" Johnson holds the belt up and we're ready start our Super-Awesome Championship Match (2 out of 3 Falls) main event!
The bell sounds and Styles and Pillman lock up and go through a series of reverses and counter-moves until Styles gains control. After a number of high-impact arial maneuvers and hear falls, Styles manages to pull out a Spiral Tap on Pillman for the first fall of the night. Styles pops up and does a little boxing-match-feet-shuffling dance in celebration, and goes to a neutral corner to await the 60 seconds Pillman gets to recuperate. The second bell sounds and Pillman comes out a man-on-fire! He starts wailing on Styles with punches and kicks until Styles has to retreat from the ring. Aries comes out to consult with Styles, but Pillman flips out and chases after him. Styles catches up and attacks Pillman on the stage. Eventually they work their way back into the ring. Pillman and Styles are punching back and forth. Styles manages to pull off a Pele Kick, but Pillman sees it coming and pulls Slick in the way. REF BUMP! With Slick out Aries sneaks back down and into the ring, but from the back, Kanyon comes out with a chair. Aries and Styles work over Pillman until Kanyon hops into the ring with the chair. Aries bails, but Styles cowers as Pillman looks on. Kanyon raises the chair to hit Styles, but then gives him the thumbs up and turns around to hit Pillman! AJ smiles! HOLY SHIT! But wait, Kanyon keeps turning and hits Styles anyway! DOUBLE SWERVE! Kanyon spits on Styles and chases Aries off with the chair into the back. Pillman rouses Slick and drapes himself over Styles... 1-2-3! Sixty seconds later both men are back up for the third fall. Styles is bleeding all over the place from the chairshot. Pillman takes advantage by punching him in the head. A lot. Eventually Styles manages to gain control and sets up for the Styles Clash, but Pillman reverses into a roll-up! 1-2-NO! Styles kicks out. Pillman scoop slams AJ in the center of the ring, climbs the ropes, and waits for AJ to get up. Missile drop kick! Pillman goes for the pin 1-2-NO! Styles manages to regain control after some back and forth. He lays Pillman out with a springboard moonsault floated over into an inverted DDT! 1-2-2.5-NO! So CLOSE! AJ is now getting frustrated. Hey waves to the back for Aries to come out, but when he does, he's chased by Kanyon, who catches up to him and lays him out with the chair. Styles is shocked! When AJ turns around Pillman clocks him with the a tornado DDT out of nowhere! 1-2-3! NEW SUPER-AWESOME CHAMPION!
Kanyon enters the ring and raises Pillman's hand but Pillman shoves him away. Pillman seems ticked off at Kanyon for interfering in his match. They stand nose to nose arguing as the PPV goes off the air.
