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 & Dean Hill are on commentary and Gilbert is the ring announcer.
After the match, Matrix helps Jade up and they shake hands, but then Jade kicks him below the belt and spits on the title.
Dean Hill announces the Nightmare Scramble, where a lethal lottery draw will determine teams of superstars to tag together in a tournament. The winners will be determined in the finals at the next Saturday Night Special, where they will receive $10,000 and a future shot at the OVW Southern Tag Team Titles. He draws for the first match right now...
After the match, Dapper Dan Van Zandt comes out and yells at Damion also, and Damion gets smacked and pushed to the back by Dan & Ringmaster.
Big Jon is interviewed by Gilbert Corsey again about Justin Smooth. Smooth comes out and says it's simple, he saw a man in need of help, and he wanted gold. Jon says most teams start out as friends, but it might be beneficial for them to start out as enemies since they know each other's strengths and weaknesses. They shake hands and make their team official as Rocco Bellagio comes out.
Rocco says this is cute, but everyone is here to see him, the soon to be longest reigning OVW Champion in history. Jon says to remember he had that belt before the Show Stealer ever got his hands on it. He says two real athletes like him & Smooth deserve a shot at that title. Rocco says he is in the giving mood, so they can face him and these two...as the Legacy of Brutality comes out.
Rocco says if they win, they can face him in a triple threat match at the next Special. If they lose, Jon cannot challenge him for the Heavyweight Title as long as he is champ, which will be forever, and the Legacy will get their rematch for the Southern Tag Titles. Everyone is okay with it, and Dean Hill comes over to make it official, and the match starts right now!
Rev. Stuart Miles comes out and has a good word. It's conquered, because he has conquered almost everyone who has stood in his way, and has conquered Adam Revolver when he got that strap and whipped him. He talked to Dean Hill backstage and is in the Nightmare Scramble, and even though his first round match isn't until next week, he wants to know who his partner will be. Dean gets in the ring and allows Stu to draw out his own partner, and it's Damion. Stu says that he has brought back an atheist and brought back someone who claimed to be Jesus Christ themself. This will be a challenge, but he knows he will help Damion see the light. Damion comes to ringside and Stu pets his head.
This ended the TV taping.
