*NOTE* I still plan on covering all of the great OVW action and bringing you, the readers, the best coverage possible. However, I have decided that starting with tonight's report, I will be scaling them back a bit. It decreases my work load, allows me to watch and enjoy more of the action, and frees up more of my time. I have always done OVWmania on my own without expectations of anything in return, and it's a lot of work to put in. Thanks for understanding.
Evan Markopoulos vs. Rockstar Spud
"The Marauders" Shiloh Jonze & Flash Flanagan (w/Raul LaMotta & Nick Dumeyer) vs. Stephon J. Baxter III & Aaron Sky.
A lot of double teaming by Flash & Shiloh. Aaron got a hot tag from Stephon, but it wasn't enough as Stephon was thrown out of the ring, and Shiloh hit a faceplant DDT on Aaron Sky who was perched on Flash's shoulders for the win.
WINNERS: MARAUDERS by pinfall.
After the match, Shiloh said "Power in numbers!". He said the OVW/Danny Davis finger puppet "The Pope" would have the title taken away from him by Raul LaMotta later tonight and at the end of the night "Pope be limpin'".
Holly comes to the ring and says she has had time to think about it, and she is happy for Hannah.
They hug, but are interrupted by Lei'd Tapa. Tapa says she wants the title. Hannah is about to accept a challenge, but Holly takes the mic and says if Tapa wants her sister, she has to go through her first. Tapa says she will see Holly in her ring, her island, tonight.
Shannon the Dude is backstage and says the next challenge in the Miss OVW contest is a hula-hoop challenge. Ray Lyn, Jessie Belle, & Lovely Lylah are all participating, as Lei'd Tapa yells she doesn't hula-hoop and storms off. Check-ins will continue throughout the night as whoever lasts the longest wins the challenge.
"Wrestling's Rockstar" Ryan Howe vs. James "Moose" Thomas (w/Timmy Danger).
Howe dodges some offense from Moose early, but Moose comes back with a flurry of forearms in the corner, splashes Howe, and finishes him off with the Moose Kick for 3.
WINNER: MOOSE by pinfall.
Danger tells Moose to finish Howe. Before Moose can do much, Jamin Olivencia runs out and chases Moose off.
WINNER and STILL OVW TV CHAMPION: POPE by pinfall.
Jay Bradley walks by the hula-hoopers and tells Lylah she looks like a hot mess. Jay is shoved up against a locker by Marcus Anthony. Marcus says he can't get physical with Jay until their match that was just signed for the October Saturday Night Special, but he's about to go to the ring and show him what's coming to him.
Best was basically fed to the wolves by the rest of the "VIP Club". Marcus totally dominated and finished Best off with the Gamma Punch.
WINNER: MARCUS by pinfall.
After the match, Jay Bradley tried to hit Marcus with a Boomstick from behind, but Marcus turned around and delivered a huge shoulder tackle. Jay rolls out of the ring and pulls Marcus down. He hits Marcus' leg on the side of the ring and then hits it against the steel ringpost. He grabs a mic and tells Marcus he will see him for their match at Saturday Night Special if he can walk.
The Mobile Homers are still trying to change their luck by playing scratch-off lottery tickets. Dylan Bostic distracts Jessie Belle by taking pictures of her with his phone, causing her to lose the hula-hooping. Holly Blossom argues with Hannah about the upcoming match with Lei'd Tapa, saying they are still a team and sisters, and they are in this together.
The Best Team Ever comes out, followed by Michael Hayes & Mohamad Ali Vaez. Rudy Switchblade says some things were said a few weeks ago that weren't really meant. They were frustrated about the Nightmare Cup and says him & Ali were really close at one time. Ali says he can respect that, but at Saturday Night Special, him & Mike are coming to win and cement their legacy as the best tag team in OVW. Jessie Godderz grabs the mic and says they are back as a team, though, and the only reason Ali & Hayes are champions, is because they weren't around when they won them. Hayes says that's probably because he was hopping around in a bunny suit and Rudy had disappeared. Hayes & Godderz start shoving each other, as Rudy & Ali lock up for their match...
The Marvelous Bodies are watching the hula-hoop contest when the Assassin comes in and takes out the Bodyguy. 4M runs off, bumping into Lylah and causing her to lose. Ray Lyn wins and is excited even though she gets pushed into the wall by Lei'd Tapa.
Jamin Olivencia is interviewed by Shannon the Dude. Jamin says James Thomas & Timmy Danger want to put a bullseye on his back? He will put a bullseye on them. They want to try and intimidate him? He will intimidate them back and challenge Moose for the OVW Heavyweight Title at Saturday Night Special.
Holly Blossom vs. Lei'd Tapa.
After the match, the Bodyguy gets another clothesline from the Assassin.
This episode of OVW TV will be up online tomorrow. As always, thanks for reading!
