OVW TV #861: "Tables, Ladders, & Rumbles"

This is the OVW Report for Wednesday, February 17, 2016. This episode can be seen on WBNA-21 in the Louisville area on Saturday at 11AM and 10PM, and online on Monday at www.ovwrestling.com/tv. In this episode, a mini-Nightmare Rumble for #1 contender to the OVW Television Title, Josh Ashcraft & Rocco Bellagio preview the upcoming ladder match, the Tag Buddies celebrate their title win, plus much more!

Without further ado:

Here we go...

Pre-Show Dark Matches:

Trevor Steele defeats Jay Best. Steele shoves Best down with his strength. Best attacks the knee of Steele and works it over, but Steele catches Best in a rear-naked chokehold for the tapout.

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 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.

Gilbert Corsey, Shannon the Dude, & Ron Hed are on commentary, and Ron is also the ring announcer.

"The Bad Boys Club": "Bad Boy" Shane Andrews & "Double R Superstar" Randy Royal (w/Jessie Belle) defeat Ravishing Ronnie Roberts & Nate Stone. Ronnie gets a hot tag from Stone, and is taking it to the Bad Boys as Stone comes back in. All 4 are in, but Jessie trips Stone. Ronnie grabs Jessie, but Royal grabs him, hits the rolling slam, and it's followed up by the frog splash from Shane for the 3.

"The Tag Buddies": Rev. Stu Miles & Adam Revolver are brought out by Gilbert Corsey for a celebration. Gilbert says he can only imagine how hard Stu must have prayed for this moment. Stu says he had and truly believed it would happen. Gilbert says Adam must believe after what happened last week. Adam says he believes that Stu trained hard and they came together to do something great. He also believes "The Band of Brothaz": General Pope & Private Anthony have a rematch coming.
The Brothaz come out, and Adam wants to know when they plan on doing the rematch. Pope says how about next week. Adam accepts, and the Buddies leave the ring. Pope says that him and Private Anthony have to get things in order, but they will and they will be champions again next week. Gilbert asks Anthony what he thinks, and says "what he said" (in regards to Pope), right? Anthony grabs the mic and says no. Pope says to put a smile back on his face, and get his head together, but Anthony grabs Pope and clotheslines him.
He then one-arm powerbombs Pope through the table that was set up for the Tag Buddies' titles. Before he leaves, he takes Pope's ring.

Josh Ashcraft & Rocco Bellagio come to the ring, and Rocco throws a ladder into the ring. Josh says instead of a Nightmare Rumble preview, there should be a ladder match preview. Rocco says they should bring out Ryan Howe now.
Casey Reeves comes out to Howe's music, wearing Howe's tights, a fake title, and is holding a toy guitar. He mocks Howe, and Rocco gives him a finger poke and Josh counts to 3. The real Ryan Howe runs out and goes after Reeves & Rocco, but Rocco catches him with a Rocco Bottom. He then sets up a ladder on the top turnbuckle, dropping Howe across it.
He then gives Howe one more shot with the ladder and stands over him with the actual title.

MINI-RUMBLE for #1 CONTENDER to the OVW TELEVISION TITLE: The first 6 out are Eric Locker, Mitch Huff, Robbie Walker, Dapper Dan Van Zandt, Rump Thump, & Ringmaster. Huff & Walker fight out on the apron, where Huff delivers an Athlete's Foot that knocks Walker back into the ring. Daniel Eads then runs out from the back and attacks Huff, eliminating him. Big Jon is out and is on a mission. He quickly eliminates Ringmaster, chokeslamming him on the apron and to the outside. The last 3 in are Leon Shelly, Ravishing Ronnie Roberts, & Tyler Matrix. Dan eliminates Leon, Ronnie eliminates Dan, Rump eliminates Ronnie, Locker eliminates Rump, Matrix eliminates Walker, Locker eliminates Matrix, and Jon chokeslams Locker before throwing him out to win.

This ended the TV taping.

Post-Show Dark Matches:

Maria James defeats Nutty Nancy after a bulldog and the reverse DDT.

Daniel Eads defeats "The Ladies' Man" Leon Shelly after hitting a faceplant slam. 

The Assassin & "The Tag Buddies": Rev. Stu Miles & Adam Revolver defeat Rook & "The Van Zandt Family Circus": Ringmaster & Dapper Dan Van Zandt after the Assassin hits the clothesline on Dan for the 3. After the match, Ringmaster & Dan hit their double team finisher on Rook out of frustration.

As always, thanks for reading!
