This is the OVW Report for Wednesday, December 20, 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.

Without further ado:
Here we go...
Pre-Show Dark Matches:
OVW Television Champion "The Real Deal" Randall Floyd defeats William Lutz. Lutz with some arm drags and a dropkick early. He hits some forearms off the ropes, but Randall kicks him and chokes him in the ropes. He goes for the Boston crab, but Lutz kicks him away. Randall clubs him in the back and slams him. He pins for 2. He stomps the extremities and hits a suplex for 2. He locks in a headlock. Lutz gets up and elbows him. He kicks him and goes off the ropes, but runs into a big clothesline. Randall headbutts him and punches him in the head. He slaps him in the face. Lutz comes back and headbutts him several times. He hits a reverse cross body out of the corner for 2. He stomps Randall in the corner and goes up top for the moonsault, but Randall moves. He locks in the modified Boston crab and Lutz taps.
"The Winter Swoldier" Adam Slade defeats Camera Man (w/"The Director" David Lee Lorenze III). Slade with some quick arm drags and a kick to the abdomen. He grabs the camera, but Camera Guy hits him from behind. He hits him with an inverted atomic drop, and David chokes Slade from the outside. Slade fires back with uppercuts galore and hits a powerslam for 2. David gets on the apron, and Slade hits him down. Camera Guy tries to roll him up for 2. Slade grabs him and hits him with a spinning cutter for the 3, then gives us a victory lap.
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.
Mike Lacett & Gilbert Corsey are on commentary, and KC is the ring announcer.
After the match, LJ & Randall continue brawling on the outside and have to be separated. Dean Hill comes out and says we are not going to spend 10 minutes in the replay booth. We are going to do this the old-fashioned way by flipping a coin. He flips heads for LJ, meaning LJ is #1, but then he tells Randall he will be #2.
Gilbert Corsey & Mike Lacett are running down the card for tonight when Michael Hayes comes out and interrupts. He wants an interview in the ring with Lacett. He says this company can keep trying whatever they want, but no one is taking the title from him. He says Houdini is a walking bag of pudding and has only been in this business for maybe 15 minutes. Houdini comes out and says he may not be the biggest or tallest, but even small dogs can bite. Hayes says to stop the underdog talk, because he made his name here based on being an underdog. Houdini says he is ready to defend his #1 contendership any time, any place. Adam Revolver & Shannon the Dude come out. STD calls Lacett "La-suck", and says he would beat him up now if he wasn't afraid Dean Hill would come out and suspend him again. He then asks Houdini if he is seriously putting his #1 contender spot up. Houdini says yes, and Lacett then lays into STD. He says since he likes radio terminology so much, after the SNS, all he will be is dead air! He says he knows he will be in Adam's corner tonight, so he will be in the corner of Houdini!
"Margarita & Moonshine": "Bad Girl" Jessie Belle & "Amazing" Maria James defeat Cali & Madi Maxx. Jessie & Maria attack Madi & Cali before the bell. Madi is thrown to the outside and Cali is worked over for a bit. She gets the tag to Madi and Madi takes Jessie down for 2 as Maria breaks the pin. Maria then knocks Cali off the apron. Madi hits Maria with a reverse drop out of the corner, but then she is taken down from behind by Jessie. Jessie gets the 3 for the win.
6-MAN HOLIDAY HARDCORE MATCH: Dapper Dan, Billy O, & Aloicious Hamilton defeat Amon & "The Void": Chace Destiny & Damion. Ladders, chairs, cooking sheets, traffic cones, and chains were all harmed in the making of this match. A lot of back and forth from both sides. In the end, Alo spears Chace, Damion DDT's Alo, Billy takes Damion out, Amon hits Billy with a sledgehammer and a pedigree, then Dapper german suplexes Amon. The Void takes Dan down with some kicks, but Billy & Alo recover to take them back down. They go to double suplex Damion, but Amon hits them both with a wet floor sign. Dan unwraps a gift on the outside and it's a kendo stick! Dan uses it and catches Damion off the ropes, hitting a Death Valley Driver through a wooden board set up between two chairs for the 3.
Randall Floyd hits LJ from behind, but LJ tosses him from the ring and dives out on him. Back inside, Adam goes to lock in another sleeper on Houdini, but he gets rolled up for the 3!
As soon as the match is over, Michael Hayes runs out and hits his side slam on Houdini. He then locks in the mandible claw on a defenseless Houdini.
This ended the TV taping.
