Pre-Show Dark Matches:
Dapper Dan & Rump Thump defeat Apollo & "Livewire" KTD. Rump & Dan take it to KTD early with hip tosses, elbow drops, and a splash in the corner. Apollo gets Dan's attention on the apron. As the ref gets Dan in his corner, Apollo gets in and hits Rump across the back. Apollo & KTD take control and work over Rump. KTD goes for a top rope splash, but misses. Rump tags Dan, who slams KTD. Apollo runs into clotheslines, and Dan finishes KTD off with the Death Valley Driver for the 3.
OVW Women's Champion Jaylee defeats Cali. Cali is hit from behind, but she fights back. She slams Jaylee and dropkicks her on the mat. Jaylee pulls her head down across the top rope and gets back in. She stands on her hair and pulls up. Cali starts to fire back, but Jaylee knees her. She takes her down by her hair. Cali fires up again and throws her into the corner. She hits an x-factor for 2. She misses a charge in the corner and Jaylee rolls her up with her feet on the ropes 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.
