BRIAN'S TAKE: Wow, a lot of big news coming out of this Special. Michael Titus is gone from OVW, there seems to be some issues between "TerreMex", and OVWmania's "Most Improved Superstar of 2014" Award Winner Rump Thump earned a future TV Title shot. Most shocking is the team just named 2014 Tag Team of the Year by OVWmania was Michael Hayes & Mohamad Ali Vaez, and Ali, who said he was retiring due to his problems with concussions, returned to ruin Michael's shot at winning the OVW Heavyweight Title. Was this a plan all along? Did Revolver pay Ali off? We know Michael will be looking for answers this Wednesday night!
