This is the OVW Report for Wednesday, March 21, 2018. 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, Dean Hill sends in a major announcement about Michael Hayes' match at the next SNS, LJ defends the TV Title against Chace Destiny, The Top Guys defend the OVW Southern Tag Team Titles against the Bro Godz and Cardinal & a mystery partner, plus more!
Without further ado:
Here we go...
Pre-Show Dark Matches:
"Varsity Babe" Meg defeats Valerie Vermin. Meg controls with the clear size advantage early, but Val has her chase her around and into the ring where she stomps Meg as she slides in. She works her over, but Meg comes back with some big slams and a big side slam. She hits a running powerslam, then picks her up. Val slides off and kicks her in the back of the leg. She locks in a sleeper, but Meg stands up with her on her back, flips her around, and powerbombs her 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.
Dr. Ted McNaler & Gilbert Corsey are on commentary, and Brittany is the ring announcer.
After the match, LJ gets attacked by Amon & the Void.
Amon wraps the chain around LJ's neck, but Billy O & Aloicious Hamilton run out to fight them off. LJ takes off with the belt and heads to the back.
As Gilbert Corsey welcomes everyone to the show, he asks Dr. Ted McNaler about his "hair". Ted has a wig on and says this is his natural hair that grows fast, because of all the nutrients that surround his brain. Sam Thompson sneaks out from behind and pulls it off to reveal Ted's shaved head.
"The Real Deal" Randall Floyd defeats Flex Murphy (w/"Shotgun" Tony Gunn). Randall with the early offense, but Flex comes back and controls for a bit. He rams Floyd into the side of the ring and locks in a sleeper. Randall hits a chinbuster. Gunn causes a distraction and Flex regains control. Floyd fires back with a big clothesline out of the corner and again Gunn jumps on the apron. Dapper Dan runs out and chases Gunn around the ring and to the back with the kendo stick. Flex hits Floyd from behind, but Floyd fires back and hits a cutter for the 1-2-3.
"Livewire" KTD comes to the ring for action, but Gilbert Corsey is handed a letter at commentary. He interrupts and tells KTD that he will be rescheduled for action at a later date, but right now he has an important announcement from Dean Hill. He calls out Michael Hayes. Hayes says he knows what's in the letter.
He says it's to announce the new general manager of OVW, Josh Ashcraft. Josh comes out and says he bought some stock in OVW, so since Dean isn't here, that makes him the majority owner around here. He says tonight, Cardinal will team with DL3 and not a partner of his choosing. Gilbert interrupts and says that's not what the letter says. It says that at the April 7 SNS, Michael Hayes will defend the OVW Heavyweight Title in a tables, ladders, and chairs match against not one, not two, but three other men!
Amon & the Void come out and attack Billy. Aloicious Hamilton comes out to fight with Amon, but gets taken out. Billy fires back on the Void, but Apollo hits him from behind with a Russian leg sweep with the axe handle for the 3.
OVW SOUTHERN TAG TEAM TITLE TRIPLE THREAT MATCH: Cardinal & DL3 defeat "The Top Guys": Kevin Giza & "The Winter Swoldier" Adam Slade (c) and "The Bro Godz": Colton Cage & Dustin Jackson (w/Dimes & Jaylee). The Top Guys double team Dustin early. DL3 tags in, but is taken down and out as well. Slade & Giza go to fly out, but DL3 & the Bros move. Dustin comes back and takes Giza down with a big splash off the top. He hits him with a beautiful dropkick and a spinebuster. Cage tags in and hits the "B-R-O" in the corner. They hit "Bro 69", but Cardinal breaks the pin. Giza gets a hot tag to Slade. Slade delivers uppercuts galore to the Bros and is in control when Shiloh Jonze runs out to "help". He has a loaded fist, and goes to hit Colton, but accidentally clocks Slade. He runs off and Cardinal tags himself in on Slade. Cardinal is in control, and has Dustin tapping out, but DL3 causes a distraction. Dustin tags out to Cage. Cage goes after Cardinal as Cardinal argues with DL3. Cardinal moves, but Cage is able to hold up from hitting DL3. Cardinal hits Colton with a faceplant, then slaps DL3 hard in the chest. The ref considers it a tag. Cardinal & DL3 argue again, and Cardinal superkicks DL3. DL3 falls on top of Cage and gets the 3! Cardinal, Dustin, Dimes, Jaylee, & the Top Guys are all in shock!
Post-Show Dark Matches:
Amon (w/"The Void": Houdini, Chace Destiny, & Nigel) defeats "The Boy Wonder" Sam Thompson. They have a test of strength that Amon controls, but Sam kicks out of it and hits an enziguri. He hits a superkick that knocks Amon out of the ring. He goes to fly out, but Amon clocks him in the ropes. He slams Sam on the floor and chops him against the barricade. He hits him off the announce table, then rolls him back in. He tries to pin, then chokes him. He stretches Sam out with a knee in the back. Sam tries to work his way out, but Amon hits him. He locks the stretch back in. Sam gets out and hits some forearms in the corner. He drop toeholds him into the turnbuckle and hits a big DDT. He kicks him in the face, but gets caught with a huge chop off the ropes. Amon connects with the pedigree for the 3 and the win.
