ATLAS DABONE VS. ADAM REVOLVER
REF: Kevin Keenan

Adam Revolver may not be very familiar to OVW Television fans, but he certainly has made himself known in the DCW area for quite a while. Because of his knowledge of the OVW wrestlers, he immediately went for the ropes as Atlas came running towards him at the start of the match, forcing DaBone to be pushed back by the ref. DaBone seemed to take the move in good spirit, however, and offered his hand to Revolver. Adam refused the handshake and the two locked up, with Adam moving Atlas to the corner by pulling on his hair, delivering a series of blows to DaBone once they arrived.

A missed tackle of Revolver in the opposite corner found DaBone’s shoulder taking the blunt of the impact, which gave Revolver a chance to work over DaBone’s arm some more. A whip to the ropes, however, allowed Atlas to hold on and throw in a kick to Adam’s chest before flattening him with a clothesline! A spear set up Da Boneyard Boogie and Atlas got the win!

KAT’S CRADLE WITH KATIE LEA

Katie arrived in the ring to introduce her new talk-show segment on OVW Television, called KAT’S CRADLE, where the “most beautiful woman in all of professional wrestling” will showcase “the best that OVW has to offer.” While the audience seemed a bit dubious, Katie continued by introducing her first guests, The OVW Southern Tag-Team Titles Champs, The James Boys!

After receiving cigars from Katie that she had stashed away, Cassidy and Kasey began discussing their golden locks of hair and how a certain Chet the Jett could no-longer talk of any locks of any hair! This brought out Terminal Velocity and our first look at Chet with his hair pretty much cropped to the scalp! After Chet’s partner, Steve Lewington, held Chet back; and the James Boys pushed Katie in front of them as a shield; Steve took the microphone to say that they wanted another shot at the OVW Southern Tag-Team Titles.

Lying through his teeth that they won the match against Terminal Velocity “fair and square” last week, Kasey laughed as Steve said that he would put his hair on the line for another crack at the titles. Still, looking forward to shaving Lewington’s head, The James Boys agreed to have a Titles Match against Terminal Velocity later on the show!

OVW TELEVISION TITLE MATCH:
SHAWN SPEARS (Champ) VS. COLT CABANA

REF: Goose Mahoney

Colt came out first, but this time he knew that Shawn would probably try to repeat the same attack from behind as he did last week and was ready for him! Colt grabbed the surprised Spears by the throat and then tossed the apologetic champ into the ring! A round of punches later and Cabana had Shawn down for a two-count! Another round of punches followed and Spears got so loopy that he fell through the ropes and on to the floor. Looking around, Shawn grabbed a steel chair and returned to the ring, only to have Mahoney take it away from him just as Colt dropkicked him into the ropes!

After repeatedly dropping Shawn to the canvas, Colt slammed into Shawn. Spears fell back into Mahoney, who then bounced off the ropes and back into Shawn, shoving him head-first into Colt and all three were down! Slowly the trio began to crawl off to different areas of the ring in order to pull themselves together, which led to Shawn finding the chair still in the ring! Picking up the chair, Shawn advanced on Colt but stopped short when he saw that Mahoney was finally getting on his feet. Making a loud clanging sound with the chair by striking it against the mat, Spears tossed the chair to Colt and then threw himself down on the canvas as if Colt had hit him. Goose turned around just in time to see the chair in Colt’s hands and, with a look of disgust, signaled for the bell in disqualification against Cabana! As Colt tried to profess his innocence, Shawn would rise up and taunt him every time Mahoney’s back was turned!

In another part of Davis Arena, Ox & Hammer continued to have problems communicating, while Los Locos found out the hard way that having done transactions with Jacob Duncan just put them on Antoni Polaski’s list as he threw them both into a stack of chairs and ripped the money that once belonged to him out of Los Locos’ hands!

VLADIMIR KOZLOV VS. CHRIS CAGE
REF: Nick Andrews

Cage found every offensive move he threw against Kozlov brushed off and worse yet, finding himself being tossed around every square inch of the ring. A whip into a corner allowed Cage to go for a splash off the second-ropes, but Kozlov saw him coming and caught him in mid-air! After trying to snap Chris in two over his knee, Kozlov attempted to gorilla-press Cage. Chris managed to get away only to hit the top-rope face-first in the process, staggering him. Vladimir performed a belly-to-belly on Cage and headbutted him a couple of times in the chest before putting Cage into a headlock and just shaking him back and forth as if it were no effort at all! With Cage looking to be in serious danger of having his head snap away from his body, Chris tapped and Andrews called for the bell. That didn’t stop Vladimir from having his “fun,” as he kept up his attack on Cage until the ref made it clear that he better let go of him!

OVW Heavyweight Champ and “Great American Hero” Michael W. Kruel came into the ring with Team America to celebrate Kozlov’s win. Of course, any win by Kozlov seems to always be about Kruel and Vladimir didn’t seem quite happy to have his victory being upstaged, but he finally applauded the Team America leader as Kruel grabbed a microphone. Kruel reminded everyone that he had beaten Cody Rhodes the week before and had successfully proven that there was no one in the OVW locker-room that could beat him!

Heading into the back, Kruel ran into former OVW Heavyweight Champ and current ECW Superstar Elijah Burke! As one would expect, Kruel mouthed off to the wrong guy and Burke soon suggested that they make their way to the ring for a match. Further, that Kruel put the OVW Heavyweight Title on the line. Kruel began to backtrack from the match, but Roucka whispered something in his ear while pointing out Kozlov that made Kruel change his mind!

OVW HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH:
MICHAEL W. KRUEL (Champ) VS. ECW SUPERSTAR ELIJAH BURKE

REF: Ray Ramsey

With the crowd booming in cheers for Burke, Kruel slowly moved his way into a lock-up with Elijah at the start of the match. A break found them soon in another lock-up that led to Kruel taking a swing at Burke and Burke retaliating by tossing Kruel down to the canvas! Kruel backed Burke up to a corner and broke a lock on his arm with a jab of an elbow to Burke’s jaw, but Elijah soon had him back down on the canvas and wiggling in pain! A suplex and slam followed to give Burke a two-count.

A couple of short-arm shoulderblocks came by before Burke whipped Kruel into a corner, only to get a boot in the face as he began to run into the corner after Kruel. The two shared a serious of pin-attempts before Burke got a backdrop and began to set-up the original Elijah Express! Kruel, however, stumbled around the ring until he could get under Elijah and shove him hard through the ropes to the floor – all the time clutching at his back and at Ramsey to keep the ref’s attention on him.

Meanwhile on the floor, Burke fought off Los Locos but couldn’t avoid the powerful grip of Vladimir, who came up being and snuck up behind Burke and tossed him headfirst into a ringpost! With Burke rolled back in, Kruel went for the pin only to get stopped at two! A few stomps on Burke’s injured shoulder led to another pin-attempt, but Kruel still could get the win. Burke finally back with a series of blows to Kruel’s chest and head, yet found he could only get a two-count as well. Throwing Kruel hard into a corner, Burke let loose with the Outer Limitz Elbow Drop but Kruel managed to grab hold of the bottom rope just as Ramsey was going to give Burke the third slap of the mat!

Just as things looked impossible for Burke to get anything but a win against Kruel, Kruel managed to get Elijah down and into a submission hold that Burke cannot break out of and Elijah finally has to tap-out after Roucka pushes his boot off the ropes! With the help of Team America, Kruel remains the OVW Heavyweight Champ!

OVW TAG-TEAM TITLE MATCH:
THE JAMES BOYS (Champs) VS. TERMINAL VELOCITY

REF: Kevin Keenan

With the ring of the bell, Chet immediately elbowed Cassidy off the apron and tossed a surprised Kasey into the ring for the start of the match! Chet slammed Kasey down and worked him over a bit before tagging in Steve to do much of the same before Kasey got in a lucky shot at Lewington’s face. Kasey tagged in Cassidy while holding Lewington in place, but a swing from Cassidy missed his target and hit Kasey instead! Kasey rolled out of the ring as Cassidy soon found himself in a near-pin and facing Chet in the ring after Steve tagged-off!

Kasey ran in to help Cassidy, only to get hip-tossed by Chet and he rolled right back out. Lewington came back in. A miss in a corner found Steve planting his face on a turnbuckle, which allowed Cassidy to tag in Kasey, but Lewington soon was back in control and ramming Kasey’s head into another turnbuckle! Chet tagged back in for a few chops on Casey, yet only getting a two-count before Kasey managed to maneuver the two of them into his own corner for a tag to Cassidy. Chet tagged Steve back in for a combo vertical suplex on Cassidy and Steve tore up on Cassidy’s arm until Cassidy managed to get enough momentum going while running in circles that he was able to toss Steve off into a corner!

Cassidy guillotined Steve on the top-rope while on the apron and the James began beating down on Lewington until Cassidy missed with an elbow-drop. Chet tagged in and clotheslines both of the James before chopping at Cassidy and whipping him into a corner. Running in to flatten Cassidy, Chet didn’t see Kasey on the floor pulling Cassidy away at the last second and Chet in the corner hard on his shoulder! Both of the James mercilessly beat on Chet for quite a time, leaving Lewington frustrated in being unable to help while Chet took on the pain and refused to tap-out or let himself be pinned!

Finally, as Cassidy tried to pull Chet away from the ropes by the ankle, Chet spun around and kicked Cassidy in the face with his other foot, giving him enough time to stagger over and tag in Steve! Lewington let go on both of the James and suplexed Cassidy back into the ring from the apron or would have except Kasey grabbed Steve by the legs and pulled him down to the mat as Cassidy fell on top of Lewington for a pin – much like they did to Chet the week before! This time, however, the ref called off the count as he saw Kasey holding Steve down. As the James tried to argue their excuses, Terminal Velocity came up being the two and pulled them both back into pins for the double 1-2-3 and the win! Terminal Velocity was the new OVW Southern Tag-Team Champs.

Not happy with the loss, The James Boys attacked Terminal Velocity after the match until the OVW referees all came out to stop the carnage as OVW Television came to a close for this week!
