Without further ado:
Here we go...
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 WBNA ion-21 in the Louisville area Saturdays at 11AM and 10PM (check local listings) and on OVW's official website Mondays at www.ovwrestling.com/tv.
The fans and superstars chant "Thank You Danny". He says he was trying not to be emotional, but he said he needs to thank the fans. He talks about how OVW has been his life for 22 years, so this is hard for him. He got a few offers, one from a female who was offering 7 digits, and call him dumb, but he didn't take it. He wanted to pass it on to someone he can trust will keep OVW's legacy going, long after he's dead. Let's just bring them out...Dean Hill! Dean promises he will continue to see that OVW produces headliner after headliner for all the major wrestling companies. He has some things to take care of. First, King Shane Williams is fired. He then says he suspended Jason Lee & Vic the Bruiser, but can't suspend Randy Royal, since he is the Television Champion, but they will have a talk about that next week. He then tells Jessie Belle to get in the ring. He says she is tough, beautiful, and talented, but needs to be held accountable for her recent actions. He made a call, and brought in a top women's wrestler to face her tonight. Next up, he tells Josh Ashcraft to take the stupid sunglasses off his face and look at him. He says tonight, the War Machine will be defending the OVW Southern Tag Team Titles against Adam Wylde & Mitch Huff...and Josh and the "nutcase" (Trevor Steele) are banned from ringside! Rump Thump comes in and says that he has had his ups and downs, but it was Dean that believed in him and told him he could be a star, a TV champion, and he did. He wants to get to the next level, and wants a match against Eddie Diamond for the OVW Heavyweight Title tonight! Dean says that Rump has worked harder than anyone in OVW, but Eddie has a match against Chris Silvio at Friday Night Fights on the 24th and doesn't want to change too much right away. He will grant Rump a match against Eddie tonight, though, in a non-title match. If he impresses him, he will give him a shot at either Diamond or Silvio at the next Saturday Night Special. He starts to tell everyone to return to the back, but tells Adam Revolver to get in the ring. He says he is tired of Revolver's constant whining and wanting a shot. Tonight, he will have a match against another star he called in. Someone Revolver knows well, because he stabbed him in the back in the past...and that match is next! Before he returns to the back, he can't be in control while announcing, so Gilbert needs a partner. He knows people, so he made another call to "The Pope" Elijah Burke!
Dylan Bostic (w/Ray Lyn) defeats Adam Revolver. Bostic comes out firing on Adam. He's in control until Adam uses Ray Lyn as a shield. Adam pushes Bostic into the ringpost and takes control. Adam hits a superplex and tries to lock in the sleeper. Bostic fights out and eventually connects with the backstabber for the 3.
We see a video of Jade Dawson saying that he (Rev. Stuart Miles) tried to blind him in their match, but this is far from over. This is not the end.
We see the video from Jessie Belle talking about not feeling bad about what she did to Ryan Howe since he "casted her aside", so she might as well be an "Outcast".
Rebel defeats Jessie Belle. Jessie attacks Rebel as she does the splits on her entrance to take the early advantage. Rebel continues to fight back, and connects with a kick to Jessie's head. She then hits a split-legged legdrop across Jessie Belle for the 3.
We see a video of Leon Shelly talking to Rebel in the back. Rebel starts talking about wrestling and being all over the world, but Leon wants to talk about himself. He asks Rebel if she likes his abs? His 'fro? Maybe the fact he can go all night long? Rebel says it would be easier to tell him what she doesn't like. It looks like they might kiss and Leon tells the camera to leave.
Gilbert Corsey brings out Marcus Anthony. Marcus says it felt great to get revenge. There was no better opportunity to return after so many months out. Unfortunately, the doctors say...before he can continue, "The Pope" Elijah Burke gets up and enters the ring.
He tells Marcus he has been in the same place and wishes he knew what Marcus was about to come out and do. Marcus again tries to talk about what the doctors said, but Burke cuts him off. Burke tells him he controls his own destiny and asks if he understands. Marcus tries to talk about what the doctors said again, but Burke slaps Marcus in the face several times until Marcus snaps and pushes Burke into the corner. Burke eases out of the ring and smiles as he feels he finally got his point across.
Shannon the Dude takes over on commentary.
Eddie Diamond defeats Rump Thump. A very good back and forth match that starts with some chain wrestling. EFD ducks a Thump from Rump and hits a running knee. He locks in the Crossfire for the tapout.
After the match, Chris Silvio attacks Eddie and grabs a ladder. He sets it up in the corner and throws Eddie into it. He says after their match on the 24th, they will be calling him "Champion".
We see another video from Dapper Dan Van Zandt. He says that the circus is coming to town in 2 weeks.
WINNERS and NEW OVW SOUTHERN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: WALK on the WYLDE SIDE by pinfall.
Dean Hill comes out and says he did approve this and welcome back to Robbie Walker.
This ended the TV taping.
