Before their big show this Saturday Florida Championship Wrestling held their weekly Tuesday October 9, 2007 event at Bourbon Street Night Club, 4331 US 19N in New Port Richey, FL.
(1) OL Chamberlain defeated Moose Madison.
Chamberlain controlled the match by outpowering Madison until Madison snuck in a punch on a supposed clean break. All that did was make Chamberlain mad and he forced Madison to the floor. Madison came back in and tried to make peace with Chamberlain but tried to sneak a cheap kick to the gut in, only to have his leg caught and his whole body press slammed to the mat. Madison slid to the floor and when Chamberlain got close to the floor, Madison tripped him up and slid back into the ring so he could lay the boots in. Madison took over with some cheap shots that opened up Chamberlain’s right eye. Madison tried to keep Chamberlain on the mat with a chinlock but Chamberlain fought to his feet and hit a series of moves that led to a powerslam for the victory.
(2) Robert Anthony & Tommy Taylor defeated “Bad SeedÃ¢â‚¬Â Shawn Osborne & Chris Gray.
In the opening minutes Taylor and Osborne had a mat wrestling exchange that didn’t yield any offense. So Anthony tagged himself in and was able to take advantage of Osborne until a well placed knee allowed Gray to tag in. But he walked right into a drop toe hold and his team took control until Anthony got too close to the wrong side of town and spent several minutes fighting for his life. Thanks to Osborne missing a top rope move Anthony tagged out to Taylor who came in to end the match quick. The end came when Anthony avoided a moonsault, carried Gray on his shoulders and drove him into the top turnbuckle. Taylor won after he hit a top rope splash. After the match Osborne and Gray had a heated verbal exchange but it didn’t escalate to anything physical.
(3) Afa Jr. defeated “Stampede KidÃ¢â‚¬Â TJ Wilson of the New Generation Hart Foundation.
After a salt ceremony in the corner, Afa attacked Wilson as he was taking his jacket off. Afa kept on the attack with a head butt and some body shots which kept Wilson off balance. Anytime Wilson tried to get on the offensive, Afa raked the eyes or hit a shot to the throat. Afa even used his wrist tape to try and choke the breath out of Wilson. Wilson went to the ropes but came off into a kneelift which allowed Afa to lock in a nerve hold to Wilson’s shoulder. Wilson fought to his feet but came off the ropes into a Rock Bottom backbreaker that got two. Wilson got to his feet and hit the ropes but his sunset flip was blocked by Afa who went back to the eyes and got two after a shot to the head. Afa sent Wilson to the ropes but this time Wilson hung on and kicked Afa in the chest before hitting a German suplex which sent both men to the mat trying to recover. Wilson was the first to his feet and on the offense hitting a slingshot elbow drop that got two. Wilson and Afa went for their finishers but Afa picked up Wilson, dropping him on the ring apron. When Wilson went for a slingshot sunset flip, Afa grabbed the ropes and held on as he dropped to his knees to get the pin.
(4) Jake Hager defeated Ted Hart of the New Generation Hart Foundation.
Hager and Hart shook hands but Hager pie faced Hart to the mat. Hart went to lock up but Hager used his power to toss Hart clear across the ring. Hager began to showboat and Hart slapped him in the face. Hager bailed to the floor to clear the cobwebs and came back in not knowing what to expect from Hart. What he got was a lockup with Hart that saw Hart flip his body over and take Hager down into a cross armbreaker. But Hager made it to the ropes and caused a break. Hager and Hart traded slaps, waistlocks and hammerlocks but Hart got a side headlock into the armbreaker. Hager went to the ropes but Hart refused to back off, hitting Hager with several kicks to the mid section. Hart backed Hager to a corner but his move only got him dropped on the top rope throat first. Hager got his senses back and went to work on the damaged throat. Hager went for a suplex but Hart countered out into another arm breaker. But Hager raked the eyes and sent Hart to the mat writhing in pain. Hart ended up writhing in pain again after a tilt-a-whirl gutbuster but Hager couldn’t finish him off. Even with a choke hold and raking Hart’s face across the top rope. Hager went back to the tilt-a-whirl move but Hart countered out into the armbreaker but Hager got to the ropes once more. Hart hit an inverted atomic drop followed by a tornado DDT but got two. Hart went up top and hit Open Hart Surgery but somehow Hager kicked out of the pin. Showing frustration Hart went up again but Hager got his knees up causing Hart’s mouth to bleed. Hager quickly got the pin fall win. But it was when Afa Jr. joined Hager in the ring with a chair things got ugly. Afa wedged Hart’s head into the chair and went up top but TJ Wilson came out to stop that.
The lovely Bella Twins (Nicole and Bri) made their way to the ring with a bag. They talked about the new FCW website that included photos of all of the FCW superstars and Divas along with upcoming FCW events. They opened the bag to toss out free FCW and WWE items to the fans.
(5) In a super heavyweight match, Rycklon defeated “the Mastodon of MayhemÃ¢â‚¬Â G-Rilla via countout.
If you were expecting a top rope move battle, you picked the wrong match because this was all about power moves. Both went for side headlocks and armbars as they talked trash. G-Rilla hit a shot to the throat to free himself but Rycklon went right back to the headlock only to be leveled by a clothesline. But as G-Rilla insulted the fans Rycklon to his feet and was ready to fight. They decided to have a test of strength but G-Rilla hit a boot to the gut before they could finish the lockup. Both men went to the ropes and the mid-ring collision sent G-Rilla to a corner but not off his feet. Rycklon used a closed fist to back G-Rilla to a corner where he a clothesline but his German suplex was blocked as G-Rilla sent Rycklon forward into the corner. G-Rilla fell back and used a school boy to get the win but ringside attendees said they saw G-Rilla use the tights. So the referee restarted the match but G-Rilla rolled to the floor where he had a verbal confrontation with a member of the FCW security. G-Rilla refused to re-enter the ring and was counted out awarding the win to Rycklon.

FCW Diva Victoria Crawford was the referee for this match that was Lacey’s debut. It got started by Neidhart telling Von Erich she was the only 3rd generation Diva and then slapped her in the face. Von Erich went to fight back but Neidhart locked her in a double chicken wing hold. Von Erich got out and also escaped a headlock by hitting Neidhart with a forearm to the jaw. Von Erich got Neidhart down with a drop toe hold into a front facelock but Neidhart countered out into a hair pull which sent Von Erich’s head to the mat hard.

Both ladies got into a punching and hair pulling stance before Neidhart went for a stretch submission. Von Erich fought out and hit a corner monkey flip. But Neidhart was able to lock in the Sharpshooter and get the submission victory. The match ended and the Bella Twins came out to aid Von Erich who had trouble walking to the locker room.
“HandsomeÃ¢â‚¬Â Heath Miller made his way to the ring for some interview time. Miller said he had some stuff to get off his chest, namely making sure the fans he knew who he was and how ticked off he was that Ted DiBiase Jr. got his title shot at Harry Smith. Miller actually accused DiBiase’s dad, “the Million Dollar ManÃ¢â‚¬Â Ted DiBiase, of paying off the FCW Commissioner to get his son the title shot.
(7) In a 3rd generation wrestler match, New Generation Hart Foundation member and FCW Southern Heavyweight champion Harry Smith and Ted DiBiase Jr. fought to a no contest.
Both men tried to get control of the match using chain wrestling holds but it was Smith who hit a belly to belly suplex into an armlock.

Smith recovered and hit a standing suplex that got two. Smith went for a rope move but DiBiase held on and when Smith charged, DiBiase hit a drop toehold that sent Smith to the ropes throat first. DiBiase pushed the rulebook to the side and used his boot to choke Smith down. DiBiase slowed things down with a rear chinlock but Smith fought out and got a sunset flip pin for two. But DiBiase got to his feet first and kicked Smith in the face. Both men traded forearms but DiBiase dropped Smith on the ropes again for a choke before hitting a dropkick for two. DiBiase took Smith back to the mat with the chinlock but Smith fought to his feet again. This time DiBiase hit a slam and the fist drop made famous by his dad. DiBiase went up top but Smith caught him and dropped DiBiase on the buckle. Smith went up after DiBiase and hit a superplex but couldn’t get the pin as both men were trying to get their heads cleared. Smith hit DiBiase with a series of moves including two clotheslines and an enziguri. But it was a Perfectplex for two that nearly ended the match in Smith’s favor. Smith went to the ropes but DiBiase hit a powerslam for two. DiBiase slid out of the running powerslam into the Million Dollar Dream but Smith backed him to the corner. Smith went for the win with the Sharpshooter but the match was ended when Afa Jr. threw salt into Smith’s eyes. He was joined by G-Rilla, Jake Hager and Shawn Osborne. But Ted Hart and TJ Wilson came out to aid their fellow member of the Hart Foundation members.

Kelly got hit with a sucker punch in the gut and Vansen went to work with chops in the corner but Kelly fought back with a series of hip tosses and a clothesline that sent Vansen to the floor. Vansen used the referee’s ten count to keep Kelly guessing when he was going to re-enter and he did but not before dropping Kelly’s throat on the top rope. Vansen came back in and went right to work on the injury with a fury all the while the fans jeered him accordingly. Kelly fought back with punches but got hit in the throat with a double knife edge. Vansen went for the submission with a rear chinlock but Kelly fought to his feet and both men knocked the other down with a clothesline. The race was on to see who would get to their feet first and it was Vansen but Kelly matched punch for punch and chop for chop. Vansen hit a running knee to the chest and a clothesline for two but it was Kelly who hit a Stinger Splash and a bulldog for two. Vansen ducked a move and leveled Kelly with a devastating DDT.
(2) Rycklon defeated Johnny Curtis.
Early on in the match it was Rycklon’s power against the speed and agility of Curtis, which was won by Curtis who kept forcing Rycklon to the floor to reformulate a game plan. Curtis tried and temporarily succeeded in working over Rycklon’s huge left arm. Rycklon resorted to an eye rake to get some distance from Curtis and he went to work on Curtis’ left arm. Curtis tried to fight back but was taken down with a short arm scissor for two followed by a back stretch from Rycklon. The crowd got behind Curtis as he fought to his feet only to be tossed back down. Rycklon went back to the stretch hold but once again Curtis was able to get to his feet and get a kick to the mid section. But when Curtis came off the ropes he ran right into Rycklon’s knee. Rycklon didn’t learn anything and went for the back stretch again and Curtis fought out this time hitting a leg lariat and a dropkick for two. But the end came for Curtis when his cross bodyblock was turned into a Rycklon shoulder breaker for the victory.
(3) In a special challenge match, England’s Steve Lewington defeated Ireland’s Sheamus O’Shaunessey via DQ.
After a staredown both men went for the power move to the corner and each got it, surprisingly both times we got a clean break. Lewington got a quick one count on an armdrag take over, seeming to let O’Shaunessey know it could end that fast. O’Shaunessey hit a kick to the gut and backed Lewington to a corner but he was reversed and whipped to the far corner crashing into it. O’Shaunessey took a ringside stroll to figure out how to take Lewington of his feet and it wasn’t the drop toe hold that’s took him to the mat as Lewington used his power for a front facelock. O’Shaunessey countered into a hammerlock but couldn’t stop the momentum to the corner that let Lewington hit a spinning head scissor. Lewington went for a float over but O’Shaunessey stopped short of the corner and when Lewington came over he got leveled with a clothesline. O’Shaunessey resorted to chokes but locked in a rear chinlock but Lewington got to his feet, but O’Shaunessey got a knee lift in the gut sending Lewington back to the canvas. O’Shaunessey went to drive his boot into Lewington’s throat but Lewington grabbed it and tossed O’Shaunessey to the mat. This allowed Lewington to get on the offensive with a series of moves including a gutwrench suplex and a hangman’s neckbreaker each for two. Lewington hit a dropkick which sent O’Shaunessey to the floor and his trusty axe in the corner which both men tried to use. But the referee ruled that Lewington won since O’Shaunessey introduced into the match first.
(4) “The ProfessionalÃ¢â‚¬Â Mike Mondo & “the NaturalÃ¢â‚¬Â Nick Nemeth defeated Robert Anthony & Tommy Taylor.
At the bell Mondo and Nemeth jumped their opponents but it came back to bite them in the behind as Anthony and Taylor cleared the ring. Mondo finally entered and locked up with Taylor with some chain wrestling but Taylor and Anthony took over frustrating Nemeth who tagged into, only to be hip tossed to the canvas. Anthony and Taylor were in total control until Taylor as sent to the ring apron and Nemeth hit him with a cheap shot. Nemeth and Mondo took turns and several minutes beating up Taylor but nothing seemed to get the pin or submission. Their big mistake came when Nemeth’s top rope move met Taylor’s boot instead of his upper body. This allowed Anthony to tag in and clean house as Nemeth and Taylor fought to the floor. But as the referee was checking on Taylor, Nemeth snuck in and hit Anthony with an Acecrusher followed by a Mondo bulldog headlock.
(5) Mariouz Jablanski defeated “The Carnival FreakÃ¢â‚¬Â Sinn Bowdee.
Bowdee went for the cheap shot kick to Jablanski’s gut but his foot was caught, surprisingly Jablanski let Bowdee got for the moment. But he refused to let go of the side headlock he slapped on Bowdee. Bowdee got a shot in but got hit with a standing suplex that sent all the blood rushing to his brain. Bowdee forced Jablanski to a corner hitting a chest chop and a punch to the chin. All these shots did was make Jablanski mad as he hit a series of power moves which sent Bowdee to the floor. Jablanski powered Bowdee back in the ring and hit a series of chest chops but ran right into Bowdee’s elbow on a corner whip. Bowdee absorbed several of Jablanski’s punches to hit a Russian legsweep into a stretch hold but Jablanski fought to his feet and hit a Hot Shot. Jablanski hit more power holds reminiscent of Ivan Putski but got stopped on a top rope move by Bowdee. Jablanksi fought backj and hit a sunset flip for two. Bowdee hit a forearm to the jaw but fell to a dropkick which caused Bowdee’s head to smack the canvas with a sickening thud allowing Jablanski to pin him.
“HandsomeÃ¢â‚¬Â Heath Miller came out to the ring to restate his argument from Tuesday night that he should be the number one contender to FCW Southern Heavyweight champion Harry Smith. He also claimed he would be headlining WrestleMania 24 which is based in Orlando this spring. That didn’t sit well with Kofi Kingston who interrupted Miller’s soliloquy and told him how he felt about the title situation. To the shock of all that brought out Raw Superstar Santino Marella who said he still had the taste of gold in his mouth after holding the WWE Intercontinental title. He challenged Kingston to the number one contendership and then told Miller he would be next.
(6) In a # 1 contender’s match, Kofi Kingston defeated WWE Raw Superstar Santino Marella.
Marella took Kingston down two times and he celebrated like AC Milan won the championship. But when Kingston scored a takedown Marella bailed to the floor. Marella came back in and buried a kick to the gut and avoided a dropkick which sent Kingston crashing to the mat. Marella locked in a chinlock that looked more like a chokehold. Kingston was hit with a suplex for one and fought back with punches to the gut but Marella hit a knee to the gut. Marella Irish whip was countered into a crucifix for two but he got to his feet fast and leveled Kingston with a kick. Marella’s suplex was countered into a Kingston neckbreaker but Kingston couldn’t get the pin. Both men got to their feet and traded moves but Kingston hit a legdrop for two. Kingston got confidence and went up top but Heath Miller came out and distracted him long enough to allow Marella to sneak up from behind. But it backfired and Marella punched Miller instead allowing Kingston to the get the biggest upset win in the short history of FCW.
(7) The Bella Twins (Nicole & Bri) defeated Nattie Neidhart & Victoria Crawford.
The match was refereed by FCW Diva Lacey Von Erich who lost a tough match to Neidhart this past Tuesday. Neidhart began with Nicole but Crawford tagged in only to allow Bri to enter the match with no damage done to anyone yet. That was until Bri walked into a boot from Crawford. But Nicole stopped a corner move from doing damage by sacrificing her body for a moment. Bri hit a corner monkey flip for one but her attempted head scissor found her being dropped throat first on the tope rope. This allowed Crawford and Neidhart to make several tags working over Bri for several minutes. With help from Nicole and the fans cheering, Bri survived the beating and she hit a double team move on her opponents to tag in Nicole. Neidhart blocked a victory roll and pinned Nicole but referee Von Erich saw Neidhart holding the ropes for leverage. As Neidhart and Von Erich argued, Nicole snuck up from behind and scored the pin.
(8) In a No DQ match; New Generation Hart Foundation members TJ Wilson, Ted DiBiase Jr. and FCW Southern Heavyweight champion Harry Smith & surprise partner Billy Kidman defeated G-Rilla, Jake Hager, Afa Jr. & “Bad SeedÃ¢â‚¬Â Shawn Osborne.
To the shock of the audience and the seven competitors in the ring Kidman made his way to the ring before the bell. He said was tired of listening to G-Rilla acting like he was the godfather of nothing. Despite having issues with the Hart Foundation, Kidman volunteered his services to make the match even. The Foundation agreed and it was G-Rilla taking on Wilson and then DiBiase. G-Rilla survived the attack to his arm and tagged in Afa who leveled DiBiase with a clothesline for two. But Afa missed a corner splash and Wilson tagged in only to be hit with a Samoan Drop for two as Hager tagged in for his team. But Hager put his head down expecing to hit a backdrop and got Wilson’s boot instead.

(2) “Stampede KidÃ¢â‚¬Â TJ Wilson defeated “The Carnival FreakÃ¢â‚¬Â Sinn Bowdee.

He mounted the corner to deliver ten punches but Bowdee shifted and dropped Wilson on his back. Bowdee resorted to chokes to slow down Wilson as the fans cheered for the “Stampede Kid.Ã¢â‚¬Â Bowdee took Wilson to the mat in a body scissor submission but the referee made him break the hold after catching Bowdee using the ropes for leverage. Bowdee released the hold by tossing Wilson into the bottom of the ringpost and pulling Wilson’s ribs into it for two.

Osborne tried to slow down his opponent with chest chops but Jablanski fought back with a standing suplex for two.

Neidhart came in and went right to a hair pull take down but went to her corner when Bri got on the offense. Nicole came into face Crawford and locked her in a front facelock.

But Hager tagged himself in to change the pace of the bout. The problem was the pace stayed with Madison and Kingston even as Hager tried to control a test of strength. Kingston snuck in and slapped Hager across the chest.

Lewington didn’t seem to care if he was cheered or jeered as he laid a slap upside DiBiase’s head. DiBiase fought back with a knee to the gut but Lewington shook it off and hit a slam. But DiBiase got Lewington near the ropes and used them to choke out the British powerhouse.

Lewington fought back with punches to the face but DiBiase resorted to chokes to even things in his favor. DiBiase hit a slam and the fist drop made famous by his dad before going to a chinlock with his knee buried in Lewington’s back. Somehow Lewington powered to his feet and dropped DiBiase in a corner but was too weak to capitalize.

To the shock of everyone in attendance, Afa Jr. was declared FCW Southern Heavyweight champion when the current title holder Harry Smith was unable to come to the ring before the referee’s ten count. But before Afa could pop any champagne Billy Kidman came out and said he wasn’t going to let Afa get a cheap win and challenged the new champion. Afa thought about it and decided to accept the match.
(8) FCW Southern Heavyweight champion Afa Jr. defeated Billy Kidman.
Afa tried to slow Kidman down by complaining to the referee that Kidman was pulling hair, was oiled up and he was pulling on his sarong. All Kidman did was keep on the offense and keep Afa guessing what was coming next. But Kidman’s flow was cut off when Afa hit a poke to the eye and threw Kidman shoulder first into the ring post. The new champion went right to work on the damaged arm driving it into the ringpost and anything else he could grab. When he wasn’t breaking the rules, Afa attacked Kidman shoulder and arm with a vengeance. But nothing he did made Kidman submit or stopped him from kicking out of a pin. Kidman tried to hit a clothesline but Afa blocked it and hit a modified cross armbreaker which sent Kidman rolling to the floor. Afa followed him out and raked Kidman’s mouth and eyes. The action came back to the ring where Afa corner charge met Kidman’s elbow but Afa recovered and hit a spinebuster for two. Afa went up top for the win but only hit canvas as Kidman avoided the frog splash. Both men fought to their feet but Kidman was quicker to the punch with a series of moves trying to set up the win. But the Giant Titan appeared at ringside and got Kidman’s attention long enough that Afa hit a superkick to get only two. Afa went for the superkick again but Kidman ducked and hit a dropkick before going up for the Shooting Star. But Titan grabbed him and stopped it long enough for Afa to go up and hit a super Samoan Drop to win.
After the match G-Rilla came out to ruin the post-match celebration. G-Rilla told people he was a bodyguard in his previous life outside wrestling, running down an A-List of clientele. But he decided to stop that to protect former ECW World Heavyweight champion John Morrison. He was allowed by Morrison to come here tonight and issue a challenge to the FCW Southern Heavyweight champion.
