Taped on April 5, 2007 in McDonough, Ga at the DSW Arena
This week’s Deep South Wrestling show (and there’s only one more) opened with a quick recap of last week’s episode. Kofi Kingston chalked up another victory, “Bad SeedÃ¢â‚¬Â Shawn Osborne & Jon Bolen defeated Robert Anthony & Johnny Curtis, and Heath Miller upset Siaki. The main event of Mike Knox vs. G-Rilla concluded with Team Elite attacking and destroying Freakin Deacon. Sherrod said he would have an update on Deacon’s condition later in the hour. Sherrod added that Bradley Jay had defeated Ryan O’Reilly at a live event to go up 1-0 in their best of seven series for the DSW Heavyweight Title.
Shantelle asked O’Reilly about losing to Jay. O’Reilly sighed as a he removed his sunglasses. “All I can do is learn from my mistake, suck it up, and move on.Ã¢â‚¬Â O’Reilly said Jay had won the first match, but they had a long way to go. O’Reilly politely excused himself.
Cut to the entrance of DSW co-general managers, Krissy Vaine and “your internet Diva championÃ¢â‚¬Â Angel Williams. Jay joined Sherrod on commentary. Vaine invited the fans to attend the next Six Flags event on 4/21 (featuring The Miz). Williams made derogatory references to their opponents in tonight’s Divas tag match, the Bag Lady and Nattie Neidhart. Vaine said the Bag Lady’s fans could wave her bye-bye. Williams wanted to know what was up with “Miss Good Samaritan pantsÃ¢â‚¬Â Neidhart coming out to help Bag Lady after they beat her down last week. Vaine said Neidhart better watch her hussy rear end or she was going to get the same treatment.
Kofi Kingston and Luscious were being interviewed by Shantelle, when Heath Miller asked if he could join in. Shantelle said actually, it was Kingston’s time. Miller said he deserved some interview time after beating Siaki last week. “We can do this.Ã¢â‚¬Â Kingston politely declined to share. Before leaving Miller said, “Tonight, it’s going to be Miller time.Ã¢â‚¬Â Kingston said he didn’t know what Miller’s problem was, but he and Luscious were going to do everything possible to win the match.
(1)Kofi Nahaje Kingston (with Luscious) pinned Heath Miller at 5:45 with the Cool Running. Sherrod noted that the crowd was split 50/50. They did a sequence of mirror image moves, until Kingston used a high hiptoss and Miller backed off. Jay boasted about sweeping the best of seven and making history by becoming a four time champion. Miller ended up on the floor after a Kingston dropkick connected. Kingston spread the ropes in a show of good sportsmanship. Miller then hiptossed Kingston through the ropes. Sherrod said it looked intentional. Miller spread the roes for Kingston. They did an intense lock up that forced the ref to call for a break. Miller blasted Kingston with a fist in the face and put the boots to him. Miller covered after a kneelift, but Kingston kicked out a one. Miller started working the shoulder. Sherrod commented on Miller’s changed attitude. The crowd got behind Kingston. Miller tried for a Boston crab, and Kingston’s counter sent him through the ropes. As Kingston went for a shoulder block, Miller catapulted back to the inside. Kingston jumped and his butt collided with Miller’s head. Jay told Sherrod to call it, but he didn’t. Kingston cleaned Miller’s clock posthaste with his finisher.
Shantelle did a backstage interview with the debuting team of T. J. Wilson and Harry Smith. Wilson said he had been watching Bad Seed and Bolen and they were always winning by hook or crook. “Actually it’s always by crook.Ã¢â‚¬Â Wilson said Bolen and Bad Seed had been tagging together for three months. Smith said he and Wilson had been a team for four. “Four years,Ã¢â‚¬Â added Wilson. “We don’t win by accident, and you’re about to see why.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Wilson and Smith entered to a mild pop.
Cut to a bug eyed Bad Seed and a clean shaven Bolen. Osborne said he had good news and bad news for Wilson and Smith. The good news was they were debuting in Deep South. The bad news was that they were going to lose. Bolen made fun of their Canadian accents.
(2) Jon Bolen & Shawn Osborne beat Harry Smith & T.J. Wilson in 6:34. The rudos tried to take unfair advantage of Smith, and he responded with a double dropkick. Jay noted that it was an impressive move of a man of his size. The Canadians blasted Bolen with a double shoulder block and focused their attack on the arms of Bolen and Osborne, as the fans chanted “break it off.Ã¢â‚¬Â Wilson has a sweet deep armdrag. Smith did an elevated armbar power move. Osborne sold a hiptoss as if he had landed on a hot frying pan. Osborne reversed the armbar, so Wilson sprung to the top rope and did a backflip to regain the advantage. At the four minute mark, Bolen interfered with a lariat from the apron to start the heat on Wilson. The heels worked over Wilson’s back. Bolen ate the turnbuckle on a missed corner splash. Hot tag. Smith cleaned house. Wilson did a springboard missile dropkick variation of the Hart Attack on Osborne, but Bolen made the save. Smith dumped Bolen over the top. On the outside, Bolen reversed a whip, sending Smith crashing into the ringsteps. From the apron, Osborne snapped Wilson’s neck off the top rope and went for a sunset flip. Wilson was fighting it off when Bolen punched him in the head to send him down for the 1-2-3.
DSW’s resident superhero Nattie Neidhart and her damsel in distress, Bag Lady were interviewed by Shantelle. Neidhart said what Vaine did to Bag Lady last week was wrong. Neidhart accused the co-GMs of taking advantage of an innocent bystander.
As an upstanding citizen of this community and Deep South Wrestling, nobody gets away with taking advantage of other people. Not when I’m around. So Krissy Vaine, Angel Williams, tonight, I am going to right this wrong. And I am going to take care of business. When you mess with best, you go down like the rest. Yeah, baby.
“That was a waste of television time,” said Angel. Krissy agreed. Krissy congratulated Angel for the number she did on that skanky Bag Lady last week. Angel said she broke a nail. “And she’s so not worth it.Ã¢â‚¬Â Feeling Angel’s pain, Krissy told her to take the night off from wrestling and second her at ringside instead.
Ted Guinness announced that the Divas tag was now a singles match. Sherrod said as co-general managers, Vaine and Williams could do whatever. Bag Lady was wearing high heels. Her psychic powers must have clued her in that she wasn’t wrestling.
(3)Krissy Vaine (with Angel Williams) beat Nattie Neidhart (with Bag Lady) in 6:37. Vaine decked Neidhart with a shoulder tackle and started running the ropes, but Neidhart got the best of an awkward sequence and Vaine ended up on her backside. Neidhart worked an armbar. Vaine used rude shortcuts to take commmand. Vaine’s brawling tactics included making Neidhart eat the rope. Vaine followed with a running butt drop to Neidhart’s neck. Vaine used a hair mare. They busted out a good looking exchange of forearms from the mount. Neidhart did a sunset flip and the crowd chanted “that was three.Ã¢â‚¬Â A Neidhart Russian legsweep left both Divas down. Neidhart made the comeback with stiff strikes and then a discus lariat for a near fall. When Neidhart hit her sitout slam, Williams crawled into the ring. Bag Lady jumped in to cut her off, losing one of her high heels in the process. As referee John Cone was getting Bag Lady out, Vaine clocked Neidhart with the shoe and tossed it to Williams before making the cover.
Shantelle approached G-Rilla and Freakin Deacon in the parking lot and asked about Team Elite’s attack on Deacon. Deacon (his head wrapped in bandages) said Willow (the tarantula) told G-Rilla to take him to the hospital to get his head fixed. As G-Rilla was giving Shantell the blow off, Deacon placed Willow in the driver’s seat of G-Rilla’s SUV. G-Rilla sat down on Willow. Deacon started moaning and wailing and foaming at the mouth. G-Rilla told Shantelle to call 911.
Next up was a backstage promo by Eric Perez. He had his mustache and goatee died blonde, but the rest of his hair is still jet black. Perez said Siaki did a lot of talking without saying much and there was a saying about people like him. “Perro que ladra no muerdeÃ¢â‚¬Â (the dog that barks doesn’t bite).
I don’t have to say much, because I’m going to do my talking in mi barrio, in that ring. Tonight, Siaki, it’s your turn to get mugged.
(4) “The Puerto Rican Nightmare” Eric Perez beat Siaki (with Afa Jr.) in 6:58. Siaki sprung a sneak attack on Perez from his hiding place next to the ramp. They traded shots at ringside. Once inside the ring, Perez took control. Afa interfered early and often. Siaki capitalized on the distraction with a rabbit lariat that knocked Perez out of the ring. Afa kicked Perez with his bare feet. Sherrod said it was more like a handicap match. Siaki gave Perez a beating in the corner. Siaki cut off a comeback with a swank jumping heel kick. Siaki grounded Perez with a cobra clutch. Perez fought his way clear, ducked a lariat and planted Siaki with a spinesplitter. Both flat on their backs and neither one moving. Up at seven with Perez firing blows. Perez hit a senton backsplash for the first big near fall. Perez showed fire. Perez hit a spinning X Factor and cradled Siaki for a close two count. Perez pulled the straps down, but Siaki ducked the Kick of Death and snapped off a powerslam. Perez managed to roll a shoulder. The announce team said it had been a long time since anyone kicked out of that move. Siaki ran into a sidekick and got knocked for a loop. Perez set up for his finisher, and Afa came up on the apron to distract. Siaki speared Afa when Perez stepped aside. Perez rolled Siaki up for the three count and a megapop from the DSW fans.
Afa leveled Perez with a superkick to end the celebration. The Samoans gave Perez the beatdown. Afa followed with a devastating frogsplash. Siaki covered Perez with the wrap he wears into the ring, and the Samoans did a little incantation over his carcass.
The Inside Pulse
The main event had great heat, stiff striking, and some nicely done near falls. The crowd was really behind Perez coming off the angle last week. It was surprising to see Smith and Wilson go under. With the pedigree, the size (6-4, 250) and the athletic ability, Smith is gold for WWE if they play their cards right and don’t rush him. He’s a boyish looking 20 and needs a lot of polish before being put on national television. Wilson looks to be further along. Osborne cracks me up. Neidhart and Vaine had a better match a few weeks back, as there were a number of spots with awkward pauses in this one, although Neidhart’s selling was fine, and they both worked hard. Bag Lady coming to the ring in high heels defied any logical explanation, except that they needed the shoe for the finish. Bag Lady (Melissa Coates) is totally outrageous, like a comic book character come to life. Neidhart speaks well in her promos, but the style and content need a complete overhaul. DSW has done some campy stuff, but the segment with G-Rilla squashing Deacon’s spider was as silly as they come. I liked the direction unexpected direction they went with Miller, and it was the best talking he’s done. The match worked as a way to unfold his heelish attitude adjustment. This week’s dark matches: Afa Jr. b Johnny Curtis, Smith b Jason Jones, Majors Brothers b Cru Jones & Brian Cage.
