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

Backstage in the OVW Troubleshooter’s office, The James Boys complained to Al Snow about Goose Mahoney attacking Kasey James and cutting off part of his hair during the past week. In fact, Kasey even saved the hair in a bag as proof of the indignation he went through. When Snow didn’t act too concern about the situation, Kasey tried to play it cool, figuring that Goose couldn’t cut off anymore even if there was a chance they would lose their tag-team match against OVW Southern Tag-Team Champs Terminal Velocity on OVW Television that night!

Al stopped the Boys from leaving; telling them that they’ve forgotten that the stipulation of their Titles Match that night was not that Goose got to cut their hair if they lost, but that he got to SHAVE their heads!

KAT’S KRADLE WITH OVW TELEVISION CHAMP TED “THE TRAILER” MCNALER

Katie Lea introduced the new OVW Television Champ to her talk-show segment by stating he was from “the deepest, darkest part of Deliverance County!” McNaler came out to the applause of the crowd and to the terror of Katie and her assistant Melody, who were unsure if he would even understand the concept of the Kat Kradle’s gift of a bar of soap. Yet McNaler knew it was “the good stuff!” so he deeply appreciated the gesture.

When another attack on his character seemed to fly by McNaler’s head, Katie switched gears and asked him how he managed to win the Television Title from someone as brilliant as Shawn Spears. McNaler responded that it was because Spears actually faced ” the Ma-ma-ma-Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-Manbeast!”

This brought out Shawn Spears, who came into the ring to tell McNaler that he was a disgrace to the Title! Thus, he was cashing in his rematch clause to regain the – or, as Spears had it be, “MY” – OVW Television Title! Manbeast er, McNaler agreed and once the ring was cleared, the match was on!

OVW TELEVISION TITLE MATCH:
TED “THE TRAILER” MCNALER (Champ) VS. SHAWN SPEARS

REF: Ray Ramsey

Sensing Spears was not up to any good, Ramsey patted Shawn down to make sure he wasn’t carrying anything on him. Yet when Ramsey turned away to do the same to McNaler, Spears pulled out a small bottle of power from his trunks and poured it into his hand. Just as Spears was starting to creep up on McNaler, however, who appeared on the apron to grab Shawn’s wrist but Colt Cabana! Growing wide-eyed – which was really the wrong thing to do – Spears had no time to react before Colt slapped Shawn’s hand back into his face and the powder engulfed his head!

McNaler approached the white-faced Spears in puzzlement as Shawn stumbled around in a panic. Still, not to miss out on a good thing, McNaler quickly threw Spears back into a pin and 1-2-3 later McNaler was the winner and retainer of the OVW Television Title! As McNaler gave Cabana a hug on the outside of the ring, Spears sat in the ring, trying to claw away the powder from his eyes!

CHRIS CAGE VS. DERICK NEIKIRK
REF: Kevin Keenan

A little bit of mouthing off between the two led straight into Cage being shoved in the face and then kicked in the gut after Chris tried to get back at Derick. A punch to the face by Cage led to Neikirk taking a run at him, which allowed Chris to take Derick face-first into the second rope and bouncing him back into a two-count! Derick whipped Chris into a corner, only to get an elbow to the face when he went in to attack. Unfortunately for Cage, a running attack of Neikirk found him flying up and straight down into a backbreaker on the knee by Derick!

Cage was having a hard time recovering from the backbreaker, which was compounded by Neikirk continuing to slam and suplex him squarely on his back several times afterwards. A whip to a corner gave Cage a chance to pull up a leg in defense and even as Neikirk grabbed at the leg, Cage was able to pull up his other leg and shove his opponent backwards and down to the canvas. That gave Cage time to elbow Neikirk a few times and hit him with a couple of clothesline and a dropkick! A slam to the mat made it appear that Cage was going to get the pin, but Neikirk broke away just before the third slap of the canvas! As Chris attempted to setup the same move, Neikirk maneuvered him into a suplex, forcing Cage to land on his shoulder and head! With Cage as close to out-cold as possible, Neikirk got the pin and the win!

OVW Heavyweight Champ Michael W. Kruel came to the ring to boost about Team America setting goals and achieving them. To prove this, he brought out “the First Lady of OVW and the NEW OVW Women’s Champion, Roucka!” Congratulating Roucka for her win last week, Kruel proudly announced a little surprise for Roucka – her getting a chance to defend the Title on OVW Television! Kruel ignored the panicked Roucka and went on. “Oh, you’re so excited! You’re speechless! And your opponent is Serena!”

OVW WOMEN’S TITLE MATCH:
ROUCKA (Champ) VS. SERENA

REF: Ray Ramsay

Serena came out to the wild applause of the OVW crowd and entered the ring, just as Kruel was leaving. That didn’t stop him from talking on the microphone, however, and he continued to gag about the Title, Serena’s chances, and just jabbering until Roucka figured out that Serena was wide-open for an attack from behind! Just three slaps of the mat later and Roucka had won the match over a shocked Serena!

Kruel returned to the ring with Roucka and shook his head at Serena. “I gave you an opportunity and you BLEW IT! Get out of my ring! There are no losers in this ring, so GET OUT!” With Serena gone, Kruel told Roucka to wave to the crowd, turning his back to the entrance just long enough for Cody Rhodes to emerge and attack him in the ring!

After roughing Kruel up for a bit, Cody dove out of the ring as Team America came out to save their leader. Holding his head in pain, Kruel screamed that he was sick and tired of Cody attacking him from behind and wanted him to come out and face him “like a man!” “You want a title-shot? I’ll give it to you, just come on in!”

This brought Cody back out, but before he could enter the ring, he was stopped by OVW Troubleshooter Al Snow. Yet Snow wasn’t there to stop Cody; he was there to congratulate him on getting the title-shot. Al then called for a ref to come out for the match, while announcing that Team America was banned from the ring and ringside!

OVW HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH:
MICHAEL W. KRUEL (Champ) VS. CODY RHODES

REF: Kevin Keenan

Before Kruel could figure out how he suckered himself into the match, he was getting speared by a rampaging Cody Rhodes as the match began! Not even giving Kruel a chance to breathe, Cody kept at him for a series of near-pins until finally slowing down long enough to try to tear Kruel’s arm out of its socket! Even when Kruel managed to pick Cody up for a slam, Cody rolled through the move and kept hold of Kruel’s arm! The same thing occurred after Kruel moved Cody to another corner, with Cody getting Kruel face-down on the canvas and tearing at Kruel’s arm some more!

Finally, Kruel snuck in a knee to Cody’s jaw after being whipped to a corner. The dazed Rhodes faced away from Kruel, leaving his back open to an attack from Kruel that saw Cody eating a turnbuckle and getting caught into a two-count. Kruel decided a few punches to the face were perfectly fine at that point and began to setup a suplex, but got rolled over by Cody into a two-count! Wrenching Cody’s arm on the ropes and ignoring the ref’s demands for him to stop, Kruel threw Cody back and went to the second-rope in a corner. His jump off the ropes towards Cody occurred just as Cody pulled up a leg and Kruel’s chin connected hard on Cody’s boot, flinging him backwards and on the ropes. Kruel managed to get up and throw a couple of punches, but Cody was able to pull himself together and slammed Kruel twice!

Kruel moved to throw Cody into a submission, but Rhodes broke free and clotheslined Kruel a couple of times before slamming Kruel’s head into a turnbuckle and hit a bulldog. Yet, for all that, Cody only got a two-count! Kruel kneed Cody and tossed him through the ropes, but Cody held on and returned to attack Kruel. Kruel attempted the same again and this time Cody got up on a corner for a flying clothesline to send Kruel down to the mat! It looked for sure that Cody would get the pin, yet Kruel happened to get a boot up on the ropes to stop the pin!

A couple of stomps to the body and head by Cody followed with a moonsault off the corner, which missed when Kruel got out of the way at the last second! Kruel went for the submission and appeared to get it, only for Cody to throw Kruel into legscissors that Kruel had to break away from. The two went back and forth for a little bit, but the missed moonsault appeared to have really taken something out of Cody and Kruel was able to sneak in the submission again – this time with Cody having no choice but to tap-out! Michael W. Kruel retained the OVW Heavyweight Title!

JUSTIN “THE OX” LAROCHE VS. ATLAS DABONE
REF: Ray Ramsey

With his partnership with Hammer apparently over and done with, The Ox came to the ring for a bit of solo action against Atlas DaBone! LaRoche had a hard time getting away from DaBone’s headlock at first, but an attempt for a dropkick by Atlas allowed The Ox to grab him by the legs and wheelbarrow Atlas into the top turnbuckle in a corner. A hard clothesline sent DaBone to the canvas and The Ox slammed him again for a two-count.

LaRoche waited for DaBone to get up on his hands and knees before swinging in a boot to Atlas’ jaw for another two count, only to then get suckered into a roll-up for a two-count from DaBone. Looking to rip DaBone’s head off after another failed pin-attempt, The Ox slammed DaBone and then began to mimic Atlas when he does DaBoneyard Boogie. The Ox didn’t see DaBone pull up his legs in time and hit them hard in the chest, bouncing off and soon finding himself being hit with a spear from Atlas and straight into the DaBoneyard Boogie, giving Atlas the win!

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

REF: Ray Ramsey

After The James Boys arrived, Goose Mahoney came out with a pair of scissors in one hand and an electric shaver in the other! Taunting Kasey for what had already happened, and obviously swearing to do MORE than the same to Cassidy, Mahoney moved off as Chet and Steve – Terminal Velocity – came out and ran into the ring! The James Boys attacked, but Terminal Velocity hit simultaneous shoulderblocks on the two and sent Kasey out, leaving Chet the Jett in the ring with Cassidy!

Chet brought in Steve, only for Steve to be whipped into Kasey’s leg through the ropes while Cassidy diverted Ramsay’s attention. Steve attacked Kasey, but that gave Cassidy enough time to tag Kasey in. Steve managed to throw enough elbows at Kasey to send him backwards, which gave Lewington a chance to tag in Chet. Cassidy came in to help Kasey, but Chet hit him and Kasey with a few forearms before Steve took over on Cassidy while Chet concentrated on Kasey. A whip of The James Boys by Terminal Velocity found Ray Ramsey stuck in the middle, however, and the ref went down as The James tried to collect their thoughts. Terminal Velocity slammed The James Boys at the same time and set them up for a pin, but with Ray out, there was no ref to count-off.

Except for Goose Mahoney, who was there solely to shave the heads of The James Boys if they lost. With no other refs around, Goose dove into the ring and slapped the mat once twice but not a third time, as the James broke loose from the pins. Reluctantly, Goose could only point out the two-counts to Steve and Chet.

OVW ref Kevin Keenan jumped into the ring and began to lecture Goose; telling him to get out of the ring. Goose tried to state what was going on, but Kevin didn’t want to hear it and demanded that he leave. With Terminal Velocity looking on, The James Boys came up being the two and threw them back into pins for a couple of two-counts! Chet drove Kasey to a corner for a beating, while Steve went to hit a crossbody on Cassidy. Cassidy ducked just in time though and Steve crashed into Kevin Keenan, sending him down hard and out, along with Steve.

Cassidy moved over to beat on Chet with Kasey until Chet hit a double clothesline on the two! Chet sent Cassidy out with the Jettstream and was about to do the same to Kasey when Cassidy grabbed Chet by the leg and held him down as Kasey jumped on top of Chet for a pin. A groggy Ray Ramsay finished the count before an equally groggy Steve Lewington could stop the pin – The James Boys were the OVW Southern Tag-Team Champs once again!

Tired of The James Boys and their antics, Terminal Velocity attacked the two from behind and backdropped them both! With Chet clotheslining Kasey out of the ring, Steve and Chet pulled up Cassidy and told a quite-happy Goose Mahoney to join them for a little barbering. With manic glee, Goose began cutting away at Cassidy’s hair and throwing it all up into the air like confetti! Before they could get too far, however, Kasey James returned with a steel chair and beat on Terminal Velocity before Kasey finish things off with a sitdown piledriver on Chet! As if that weren’t enough, The James Boys then put Steve’s arm into the chair and slammed a baseball bat into the chair, looking to break Steve’s arm. As Steve rolled in pain, The James Boys held up the Titles for all to see!

What will happen to Terminal Velocity after the beating they suffered from The James Boys? Will Serena get another shot at Roucka after the sneak-attack she suffered from her this week? Will Kruel be able to remain the OVW Heavyweight Champ for much longer? Can McNailer keep up as OVW Television Champ with Spears gunning for him? What is Colt planning to get out of all of this?

The only way to find out is to keep watching OVW Television on the CW Network in Louisville and Cincinnati!

———-

On a personal note: I’ll be signing off as your OVW Television reporter with this week’s review. I’ve been writing for OVWrestling.com since the early days of the OVW Summer Sizzler Series and have been doing the weekly OVW Television reports here for nearly three years, so this was a very tough choice. It’s been great fun and I have a lot of fond memories, but new writing opportunities are popping up and I realized that I have to let something go in order to have the time I need to do them.

I want to thank Danny Davis for giving me the chance to tell others about all the great shows over the years, as well as Julie, Jonathan, Matt, Erin and everyone else in front of the camera, in the ring and behind-the-scenes at OVW. Without them, it wouldn’t have been as much fun. Lastly, I want to thank my wife, Jill, for putting up with all the wrestling stuff over the years!

Don’t think this will be the last you see of me, however! If you like what you’ve been reading, you can still find all six of my published books in bookstores and hopefully a seventh coming very soon. And this certainly doesn’t mean the end of my watching OVW Television and heading out to Davis Arena to see all the OVW action live! So for now, you’ll find me where I’ve always been – from the other side of ringside.
