Without further ado:
Here we go...
Pre-Show Dark Matches:
Scarlet defeats Callie after delivering the Contortionizer for the 3.
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 & Josh Ashcraft are on commentary and Gilbert is the ring announcer.
After the match, Jade runs out and brawls to the back with Matrix.
After the match, Dan attacks Stu from behind and calls out Big Zo. Ringmaster & Scarlet hold down Damion and force him to watch as Zo delivers a Zo Bomb to Stu being held down by Dan.
There is a contract signing between Tony Gunn & Diamond. Gilbert Corsey says that they are not allowed to put their hands on each other or they will face a $5000 fine. He also says the rest of Team Next Level has been banned from coming out, and if they do, will lose their place in the Nightmare Scramble. Gunn signs the contract and eggs Diamond on to hit him. He makes fun of him being a WWE reject and asks if he will sign it as Ryan Howe, Diamond "I took my wife's last name" Steele, or better yet...Skidmark. He pushes the limit until Diamond finally snaps and turns the table over. He spears Gunn and hammers away. He says he will break both of Gunn's arms at SNS and make Gunn the last member of his own club after shattering Gunn's Tap Out Club sign over Gunn's head. He signs the contract to make it official.
Rocco Bellagio is out to talk about being 7 days away from becoming the longest-reigning OVW Champion in history. He says he is planning on throwing a big party. He talks about SNS and says the now supposed BFF's Big Jonnie & Justin Smoothie won't be able to co-exist to beat him. He calls them out for the "Pick Your Poison" matches.
Justin Smooth says that him & Big Jon are planning on driving down to Plungetown and burning that son of a...(Jon pulls the mic away). Rocco then grabs the mic and says he gets to pick Smooth's opponent and it's the 7-foot Trevor Steele.
Justin Smooth defeats Trevor Steele following the running big boot for the 3.
After Smooth catches his breath, he runs through the accolades of the opponent he picked for Jon. It's a former gold glove champion, trained in MMA, has a record of wins in the double-digits and losses in the single-digits...it's the Blue Chippa! Rocco is irate.
Big Jon defeats The Blue Chippa in about 5 seconds after Chippa runs right into a chokeslam for the 3.
Jon grabs the mic and challenges Rocco for the "Pick Your Poison".
"The Show Stealer" Rocco Bellagio defeats Big Jon by DQ after the ref sees Justin Smooth interfere. Rocco grabbed the title belt and was going to use it, but Smooth ripped it away and then hit Rocco in the ropes and Jon hit a big boot. Jon called Smooth in the ring and they deliver a double chokeslam to Rocco and stand tall with the Heavyweight Title.
This ended the TV taping.

Jade Dawson defeats Mexicutioner following a low blow that the ref doesn't see and a DDT for the 3.
