Without further ado:
Here we go...
Pre-Show Dark Matches:
"Primetime" Robbie Walker defeats "The Party Starter" Bud Dwight & Tony Gunn. Walker lets Gunn & Dwight fight it out to start the match, then picks his opportunities to try and take advantage. Late in the match, Dwight goes to clothesline Walker, but gets Gunn when Walker ducks. Walker grabs Dwight and throws him out, then rolls Gunn up with a handful of tights for the victory.
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.
Howe & Matrix hug and shake hands, but Devin Driscoll (with Casey Reeves & Josh Ashcraft) runs out and blasts them from behind. Josh hits Matrix with a kendo stick and knocks him from the ring, as Driscoll blasts Howe with the title belt. Josh & Reeves pick Howe up, and Driscoll connects with the Cutter. Josh tells Howe to shine the belt up real good, because it will soon be theirs.
"The Show Stealer" Rocco Bellagio defeats Houdini by KO. Houdini should have done a disappearing act. He tries to throw some blows at Rocco and deliver some stunners, but Rocco hits him with a powerslam and 3 plunges. Houdini can't continue, and Rocco says and motions that he wants another title shot.
"The Ladies' Man" Leon Shelly & Ravishing Ronnie defeat "The Van Zandt Family Circus": Ringmaster & Dapper Dan Van Zandt (w/Little Damian) by DQ. Ringmaster & Ronnie are fighting on the outside, and inside, Dapper Dan & Leon are fighting over the whip. Scarlet returns and gets in the ring.
She pulls the whip away, but then low blows Leon!
Trevor Steele defeats Eddie Knox after hitting a huge spinebuster for the 3.
"Bad Boy" Shane Andrews (w/"Double R Superstar" Randy Royal & OVW Women's Champion Jessie Belle) defeats Adam Revolver (w/Rev. Stu Miles). Revolver hits his finisher on Shane, but the ref is distracted by Stu & Royal fighting on the outside. Jessie Belle throws a chain to Shane while Adam tries to get the ref. Adam turns around and gets clocked, and Shane picks up the 3.
This ended the TV taping.
