Without further ado:
Here we go...
Pre-Show Dark Matches:
"VIP" Joe Rosa b. Jeremiah Plunkett. Plunkett & VIP both poke each other in the eye. Plunkett gets VIP in the corner and VIP hits him with a cheap shot. They go to lock up for a test of strength, and each kick each other low. They lock up and Plunkett hits a chop to VIP's throat. He scratches VIP's back, and kicks him in the corner. VIP fires back, but Plunkett pokes him in the eye again. He hits a big backdrop and tries to pin, but VIP kicks out. Plunkett locks VIP up from behind and shoves him toward the ropes, but VIP grabs the ref. With the ref distracted, VIP raises his leg and low blows Plunkett behind him. He rolls him up with a handful of tights and gets the 3. MY TAKE: These 2 clearly had the same ideas, but in the end, VIP outplayed Plunkett.
That concludes tonight's pre-show dark matches. I always recommend watching the episode first on TV or online before reading the rest of the report. Again, you can check it out on OVW's official website late Thursday afternoon/evening at www.ovwrestling.com/tv.
