This is the OVW Report for Wednesday, August 30, 2017. This episode can be seen on WBNA-21 in the Louisville area on Saturday at 11AM and 9PM, and online at www.ovwrestling.com/ovw-media.html. In this episode, Michael Hayes faces Logan James, Tyler Matrix faces Jade Dawson, Dean Hill addresses the Legacy of Brutality's attack on Jessie Belle, plus more!
Without further ado:
Here we go...
Pre-Show Dark Matches:
"The Bro Godz": Colton Cage & Dustin Jackson defeat "The Boy Wonder" Sam Thompson & "Livewire" KTD. KTD & Sam with a quick start. They try to dive out on the Bros on the outside, but are met with forearms to the head. The Bros work over Sam and Dustin hits the Ballin' elbow. He misses a second and kicks Dustin away. Both men tag, and KTD fires away on Colton. Dustin breaks up a pin and knocks Sam off the apron. Dustin hits a whirling knee and Colton hits the scissor kick for the 3.
Aloysius Hamilton defeats Mr. Williams. Williams with a side headlock and punches Aloysius, but runs off the ropes and hurts himself trying to shoulder block him down. Aloysius takes control and controls the rest of the match. He hits a double legdrop across Williams' back, then hits the famestopper 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-21 in the Louisville area Saturdays at 11AM and 9PM (check local listings) and on OVW's official website Mondays at www.ovwrestling.com/ovw-media.html.
Gilbert Corsey & Dr. Ted McNaler are on commentary, and KC is the ring announcer.
"The Trinidad Titan" Justin Smooth defeats Ca$h Flo by countout. Ca$h & Smooth exchange blows and Ca$h gets in abig chop. Ca$h throws him in the corner, but Smooth moves and hits a clothesline and a big slam. Smooth is getting the better of Ca$h, and Ca$h decides he doesn't need to get back in the ring.
After the match, Dean Hill comes out and says not only is he a woman beater, he is a coward. He has the guys escort him out of the building as well, because he doesn't need any cowards in his locker room.
#1 CONTENDER for the OVW TELEVISION TITLE: Big Zo defeats "Shotgun" Tony Gunn. David Lee Lorenze III, Jaylee, & Randall Floyd are at the commentary table. Quick exchanges early. Zo with a suplex, chops into the corner, and a splash. He slams him and hits the Are You Serious? legdrop. He slams him in the corner and goes up for the Zo bomb, but Jaylee distracts the ref. David goes to hit Zo with the clapperboard, but Zo ducks, and David nails Gunn. Zo kicks David out of the ring and hits the Zo bomb on Gunn for the 3.
After the match, David & Randall attack Zo. Randall hits the Deal Breaker, but they argue over who should do what next. Zo gets back up, knocks Randall out of the ring, and hits a huge powerbomb on David.
After the match, Logan James runs out to help fight off Revolver.
Matrix gets back up and helps fight off Revolver, but the Void attacks them and Jade hits a snap DDT on Matrix. Holy Water runs out and fights with the Void. They take out Chace & Damion, then hit a combo clawslam/chokeslam on Jade.
They grab a casket from under the ring and try to stuff him in, but the Void comes back in and knock Billy to the outside and try to stuff Stu in. Billy comes back in with a sledgehammer and chases them off.
"The Winter Swoldier" Adam Slade & Kevin Giza defeat Apollo "Showtime" Garvin & Dre Blitz. Quick start by Giza & Slade, but Apollo kicks Slade from the outside as he goes off the ropes. Apollo & Blitz work Slade over, until Slade comes back and gets the tag to Giza. Slade flips Giza onto Apollo with a flying legdrop for the 3.
Gilbert Corsey & Ted McNaler say that the Women's Title has been vacated by Mickie Knuckles due to personal reasons, so there will be a new champion at the Special. Cali will be one of the participants, with the other to be announced Saturday night. Also, after their win, Adam Slade & Kevin Giza are the new #1 contenders for the OVW Southern Tag Team Titles.
After the match, Hayes won't break the hold until he is chased away by Justin Smooth.
This ended the TV taping.
