Without further ado:
Here we go...
Pre-Show Dark Matches:
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.
Josh Ashcraft comes out with Devin Driscoll and says at the 10 man elimination tag match at the Derby Festival, Big Jon will be on the losing side, because he has the Bad Boys Club, Daniel Eads (who he says will soon be the next TV Champion and is backstage getting ready), and the OVW Heavyweight Champion Devin Driscoll. Driscoll says he will remain champ after Saturday in E-Town, Eads will be TV champ after tonight, and the Bad Boys are future tag champs. He then extends an invitation to Rocco Bellagio to join their team because they are winners. If he chooses the other team, it will be like joining a JV squad. He says Rocco is OVW's MVP, and should be their 5th man.
The Van Zandt Family Circus comes to the ring led by Ringmaster, who has on an afro wig and robe mocking Leon Shelly. Dapper Dan says Leon touched his beauty (Scarlet), so they took some of his away by shaving his head.
They then go after the cameraman, Houdini, and go to shave him as well, but Trevor Steele comes out and runs them off.
"The Show Stealer" Rocco Bellagio defeats Rump Thump. Rocco powers through Rump early, but falls to the outside after charging at Rump, and Rump pulls down the ropes. Rump then flies outside onto Rocco. Rump rolls him in and goes up top. Rump hits a flying Thump, but only gets 2! Off the ropes, Rocco catches Rump with a mega spinebuster. He then connects with the Plunge for 3.
After the match, Ron Hed tries to get Rocco to announce his intentions for the 10 man elimination tag match, but Rocco stares at him and walks off.
OVW TELEVISION TITLE: Big Jon (c) defeats Daniel Eads by DQ. A very good match that actually sees Eads control most of over the big man. Eads cannot put him away, so Josh Ashcraft runs out to create a distraction, and Devin Driscoll comes out and blasts Jon with the Heavyweight Title.
Eads covers, but Jon kicks out at 2! Jon starts to find his second wind, and takes Eads down with a big boot.
He sets up for the chokeslam, but the Bad Boys Club runs out and attacks him for the DQ.
Eads, the Bad Boys, & Driscoll gang up on Jon, until the Tag Buddies run out.
Next, Mitch Huff runs out to even the numbers. They run off Team Driscoll, and Jon says this is a preview of his team.
Rocco Bellagio comes out and looks at both teams, but again walks back to the back without making a decision.
This ended the TV taping.
