Gran Metalik VS Tony Nese!

The feud of speed versus strength continues as The King of the Ropes goes 1v1 against the Premier Athlete. The Cruiserweight Juggernaut defeated the Lucha Dragon last week, can Metalik even things against Nese here tonight? Or will the Body Guys gain ground two weeks in a row?

Nese is interviewed backstage before the match, but Nese is not in the mood. He’s literally having a match in 30 seconds. Murphy takes the interview for Nese, and he himself has a whirlwind week. Murphy beat Kalisto and now he’ll get a Cruiserweight Championship match in his hometown of Melbourne, Australia, as part of Super Show Down. The Aussie Aggressor was an easy choice, because he’s Melbourne’s biggest star, the most dominant star on 205 Live, and was “this close” to defeating Cedric Alexander for the title the last time they fought. But now things will be in Murphy’s backyard, and so he’ll have thousands upon thousands of people cheering for him when he becomes the new Cruiserweight Champion. But for tonight, he knows Nese will take care of business.

Given the continued ringside ruckus that happens between these two teams, including last week, Nese and Metalik are alone in the ring. The bell rings, and Metalik circles with Nese. The two tie up, Metalik gets a waistlock. Nese standing switches and gets a headlock. Metalik powers out but Nese runs him over with a shoulder. Nese runs and things speed up. Metalik arm-drags but Nese arm-drags back, and their dropkicks cancel out. They both handspring, and fans like the stalemate. Nese kicks but Metalik reverses to a waistlock. Nese elbows out but Metalik chops him back! Metalik whips Nese but Nese reverses. Metalik goes up and over but Nese does, too, then handsprings to mule kick, knee lift and leg sweep!

Nese springboards but lands on his feet when Metalik dodges. Metalik handsprings but Nese dodges the rebound. Metalik handsprings again to arm-drag Nese! Fans fire up for this lucha exhibition as Metalik arm-drags Nese out of the ring. Detroit echoes “Lucha! Lucha!” and Metalik eggs Nese on. Nese comes back but gets a dropkick. Metalik builds speed, slides out but Nese avoids. Nese alley-oops Metalik up, catches the kick and sweeps Metalik onto the apron! Nese climbs up to join Metalik and prepares a bomb! Metalik holds on for dear life, and gets out to SUPERKICK Nese. Metalik leaps, but his huricanrana is countered into a swing into barriers! The referee tells Nese to bring this back inside, so Nese puts Metalik in. Cover, ONE, but Nese stomps Metalik out.

Nese stalks Metalik to a corner and drags him up. Metalik fights back with body shots and haymakers, but NEse shoves him. Metalik boots Nese and grabs Nese for a DDT. Nese blocks into a Northern Lights, cover, TWO! Nese stomps Metalik more, then flexes just to show off. Fans boo while Nese drags Metalik up. Metalik fights back again, but Nese throat chops. Nese whips Metalik corner to corner, but Metalik stops himself to elbow Nese away. Metalik hops up, moonsaults but Nese catches him! Nese spins Metalik, but gets a DDT counter! Both men are down but stirring as fans “Lucha! Lucha!” for Metalik. Metalik stands in a corner and then runs for the Sling-Dog! He keeps going, walking the ropes to missile dropkick Nese! Cover, TWO!

Metalik drags Nese up for a fireman’s carry but Nese slips out. Metalik swings around to a sunset flip! TWO but Metalik chops Nese again. Nese reverses the whip but Metalik handsprings, only to get the heel kick! Both men are down again, and Metalik gets to the apron. Fans build to a rally as Nese drags Metalik up by his hair and mask. Nese suplexes but Metalik slips out. Nese boots and ends up on the apron, but Metalik meets him at the corner with a kick! Metalik backs off to run back in, for a SUPER Huricanrana! He sends Nese to the floor but ends up crashing, too! Fans build to a rally as both men slowly stir. Metalik gets up onto the apron first, but Nese pursues. Nese grabs a foot but gets a mule kick. Metalik climbs up, for a SUPER Moonsault, that gets Nese’s boots!!

The referee checks on both men but they’re okay to continue. Fans fire up as Nese staggers to his feet. Nese is in the ring, Metalik follows and gets in at 7. Nese is on Metalik but Metalik fights back. Metalik chops but Nese sweeps the legs! Nese runs, to FLY! The Premier Athlete puts Metalik in the ring then climbs up high, for a 450!! Cover, TWO!!

Lucha libre ties the singles series with the powerhouses, and Lucha House Party appears to celebrate with their amigo! They even have candy from Penelope Pinata! Will they continue to taste sweet, sweet victory against Nese & Murphy? Or will the Body Guys give them some bitter defeat in the coming weeks?

 

Drake Maverick speaks with a referee.

The GM of 205 Live doesn’t know what Cedric Alexander has planned for tonight, but make sure everyone is ready. And if something crazy does happen, Maverick will take care of it. The ref heads out and in walks Mustafa Ali. Ali was kinda hoping Maverick would still be in his Authors of Pain gear from last night’s Raw, but oh well. Maverick’s Monday nights are of no concern to Ali, but what is of concern is this show. Ali confronted Hideo Itami before being cleared to compete. But Ali couldn’t just stand by and watch that! Plus, he’s fine! That’s what Ali said before his previous match with Itami, and look what happened.

Maverick appreciates Ali wants to end Itami’s violence, but Ali will not step into the ring again until Maverick says so. Ali leaves, not happy with the boss’ orders. Will he listen to Maverick? Or will his heart get the better of him again?

 

Noam Dar VS Brian Kelly!

The Scottish Supernova has been red hot since returning. He won the unofficial series of three against TJP, and is still waiting for a chance at the WWE United Kingdom Championship as he earned back in June. But before he can get going here, Lio Rush appears! The Man of the Hour, sporting a new hairdo, heads to the ring to watch the former youngest Cruiserweight in the WWE from commentary. Will the 23 Year Old Piece of Gold be too much of a distraction for Dar?

The bell rings and Dar circles with Kelly. They tie up and Dar gets an arm wrench. Dar gets a headlock while Lio wants to know why he wasn’t booked for Summerslam weekend. Kelly powers out of the headlock but Dar runs him over with a shoulder. Things speed up but Dar holds ropes to then duck and table-top Kelly. Dar whips but Kelly leaps, only to miss the crossbody. Dar bobs ‘n’ weaves then snapmares Kelly into the ropes. Kelly bails out to the apron but he hotshots Dar back. Kelly gets back in and rains rights on Dar. He backs off at the ref’s count but shouts “I came to win!” Kelly drops an elbow on Dar, then puts on an armlock.

Dar gets up and fights out of the hold. Dar runs into a back elbow and Kelly hops up onto the ropes, but Dar sweeps the legs. Lio admits he’s a little impressed by Dar, so he wanted to see things in person. Dar fires off on Kelly, then runs in at the corner for a back elbow. He throws Kelly with a Northern Lights, then stares down Lio. Lio figures Dar is a fan of his. Dar sweeps Kelly’s legs, then puts pinkies out as he takes aim. Dar hits the Nova Rolla! Cover, Dar wins!

Winner: Noam Dar, by pinfall

The Supernova continues to stare down the Man of the Hour. Lio sees Dar is a winner, but he’s not undefeated like Lio. Lio stands on the announce desk to “applaud” Dar but Dar gives the bear claws back. When will these two young, fast and rising stars meet in the ring?

 

Drake Maverick finds Cedric Alexander backstage.

The GM knows Alexander and Drew Gulak have history, and normally Maverick wouldn’t allow his show to go this way. But out of respect to the champion, he will let Alexander go out there. Alexander needs to keep it professional, because if it escalates, Maverick will intervene. Alexander says “You’re the man, boss.” What will the Soul of 205 Live have to say to the Philly Fury?

 

Cedric Alexander heads to the ring!

The Age of Alexander has been undefeated in the year 2018, and has been champion for almost five months now. However, between Buddy Murphy in five weeks and Drew Gulak causing trouble in the name of a title match, the champion has a lot going on right now. Alexander says he’s a man of very few words, so he’ll keep this short and sweet. If Gulak has any sense of integrity, he’ll come down to the ring so Alexander can finish what Gulak started. Alexander waits, taunting the submission specialist, but if that’s how it is– Wait, TJP comes out?

The inaugural (New Era) Cruiserweight Champion responds to Alexander by saying it’s not surprising Gulak isn’t out here, he’s too much of an opportunist. But TJP is impatient, so he’s not waiting anymore for that title. Cute side plates, but here’s a history lesson: the center plate was made for TJP. TJP will happily put Alexander on his next trading card, where the picture will be Alexander “on the mat, tapping out to me”, putting TJP in line for a title match. Alexander doesn’t mind, he’s itching for a fight. TJP enters the ring but Drake Maverick appears! The GM did say he’d intervene if things escalated. He’s the person who makes the matches, after all. Now he’s going against his GM code, but he’s also a shameless promoter. He likes what he sees, so it’ll be Cedric Alexander VS TJP, right now!

Cedric Alexander VS TJP!

We have the Soul of 205 Live, the FilAm Flash, and a referee, so the match begins! Alexander and TJP circle and tie up. TJP gets a waistlock then shifts to a cravat. He shifts to an arm wrench but Alexander rolls and handsprings through to wring TJP to the mat. He has TJP down but TJP springs up. Alexander reels TJP into a headlock but TJP powers out. Alexander runs him over with a shoulder but TJP kips up, only for Alexander to throw him down again. Things speed up now, but TJP counters Alexander to a waistlock. Alexander runs and handsprings to hit the Neuralizer! TJP bails out but Alexander takes aim. Alexander builds speed as fans fire up, to DIVE! He hits TJP down but lands on his feet.

Alexander gives high-fives to the front row before picking TJP up. He ram TJP into the LED, then refreshes the count. Alexander chops TJP, then puts him back on the apron. Alexander joins TJP but TJP hits back, to DDT Alexander on the apron! TJP catches his breath while Alexander shakes out the cobwebs. TJP brings Alexander up and in at 5, then drags Alexander up to slingshot and spin around to an Octopus Stretch! Alexander pries his way out, to a Stretch Muffler! TJP crawls and rolls to a cover, TWO! Alexander somersaults and handsprings to a headscissor and dropkick! TJP rolls out again but Alexander pursues.

Alexander rocks TJP with a European Uppercut, then puts him back in. TJP rolls all the way to the opposite apron. Alexander counters his shoulder with a knee, but then TJP kicks out Alexander’s legs! TJP ties Alexander up in the ropes for another Octopus Stretch! The referee counts but TJP lets go at 4. TJP stalks Alexander and stomps him down. He hammerlocks Alexander’s arm and throws him into buckles. TJP puts the arm in the ropes and pulls, putting his boot in Alexander’s chin. Alexander fights back with swfit chops, but TJP boots the bad arm. TJP runs but Alexander dropkicks the legs out! TJP hits buckles and then Alexander gives him a knee in the corner! Alexander aims, and step-in springboards for the tornado complete shot! Cover, TWO! Alexander keeps his cool while getting his arm moving.

TJP gets to a corner but Alexander has fans firing up. Alexander runs but into a roundhouse! TJP runs but into the scoop, to turn it into a victory roll! TWO, but TJP has Alexander’s arms. TJP hammerlocks one and YANKS on the other! Alexander writhes and shouts in pain, but he refuses to quit. TJP drags Alexander up to suplex for uno amigo. He spins around and back suplexes for dos amigos! Cover, TWO, so TJP keeps on that bad arm with a modified armbar. Alexander resists but TJP still gets the other arm and bends them both. Fans rally up again as Alexander endures. Alexander powers up and fights back, but TJP elbows him to a corner. TJP whips but Alexander reverses. TJP springboards for forearms! He kips up to show off, but runs into Alexander’s boot. Alexander springboards for the flying lariat!

But it was double-edged after what TJP has done to him. Alexander can’t cover, so both he and TJP are down. Fans rally up again and Alexander feeds off it. Alexander stands but TJP follows. TJP runs in, but Alexander kicks him away. Alexander boots TJP down, then starts to rally with lariats .He spins TJP around for the stiff back elbow, then suplexes into a gutbuster! Cover, TWO!! Alexander is shocked, but he then grits his teeth as he prepares his true finisher. He lifts but those bad arms give out. TJP goes to run, but Alexander reels him in, only for TJP to counter into a guillotine! Then he shifts it to a hoverboard wristlock! Alexander stays standing, and powers out to a Michinoku Driver! Cover, TWO!! Alexander is again shocked, but the fans are loving this.

TJP is down, so Alexander goes back to a corner. Alexander aims as TJP stands, springboard lariat CAUGHT into a Fujiwara! Alexander reaches, rolls, but TJP makes it a Kneebar! The champ endures, and manages a ropebreak! TJP lets go, but he has Alexander hurting in the corner. TJP walks over and toys with Alexander, but that only angers Alexander. Alexander gives a forearm, but TJP fires off kicks. Alexander hits back, catches a kick, but gets caught into an armbreaker! He makes it a cover, TWO! TJP scoops but alexander slips out, half-nelson into LUMBAR CHECK! Cover, Alexander wins!

Winner: Cedric Alexander, by pinfall

But now that the match is over, Drew Gulak finally appears. He tells Alexander, “Congratulations, another ground breaking performance”! But what was that earlier? Finishing what they started? Well Gulak’s in his practical ring gear, and after careful consideration, Gulak accepts Alexander’s challenge. Gulak heads to the ring and Alexander is ready, but as usual, Jack Gallagher does Gulak’s dirty work. Alexander fights Gallagher off but Gulak pounces! Gulak drags Alexander into the GuLOCK! Alexander flails as he’s stuck in the dragon sleeper and body scissors, but Gulak lets go as Maverick and other referees rush in. Maverick reprimands Gallagher and Gulak again, but Gulak has accomplished his mission. Will Gulak get a shot at Alexander before Super Show Down? Or is he just making it that much easier for Buddy Murphy?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A pretty solid episode right here. I was surprised to see there was no opening with Drake Maverick giving a rundown of tonight, but after it’s all over, it makes sense as to why he didn’t: he would’ve given us some spoilers! Anyway, Metalik VS Nese was great, it even got this considerably smaller and tired crowd going. That’s what I actually appreciated about tonight’s crowd. They were the ones who stuck around because they wanted to see more good wrestling, and were invested into what they got. Metalik wins but will have a match with Buddy Murphy next week, that should be great, too. I still need Cruiserweight Tag Team Championships resulting from this feud, though.

I like that they’ve already set up Lio Rush VS Noam Dar for the coming weeks. Dar wins against the resurrected red trunks jobber from last night’s Authors of Pain squash, but his matches with Lio will be great. It doesn’t really matter who comes out the winner of this feud, but I wouldn’t mind seeing that winner move up to get a Cruiserweight Championship match for it. I’m also waiting to see Dar VS WWE UK Champion, who I assume will still be Pete Dunne by that time. Dar being a crossover star is great for him and both shows, it shows HHH being in charge will bring more fluidity between such brands.

Giving us TJP VS Alexander was a great surprise, and they did great in all of that. I like that, with Alexander still being undefeated this year and having a lot coming at him for the Fall, any match could completely change things for him. TJP looked close, and Murphy could be even closer in October. But I’m betting, especially after Gulak taking advantage of Alexander again tonight, there will be something for at least Hell in a Cell week, like a title match on the Tuesday before or after the PPV. It would be insane and actually smart if Gulak wins to take Alexander’s title and 2018 win streak to then be the one to go against Murphy in Melbourne. In fact, escalate things and make that match triple threat because Alexander wants his rematch.

My Score: 8/10

PLAY BY PLAY

David McLane again welcomes us to WOW!

The matchmaker knows last week’s star-studded Triple Threat for the Women of Wrestling World Championship was wild but also ended in a double pin. Jungle Grrrl hit her splash but Santana Garrett also covered Tessa Blanchard’s legs for an impossible scenario. Senior official Scrappy McGowan came out to ensure the integrity of the title, and chose to postpone awarding it until after the officials could properly review the footage.

And tonight, that long awaited decision is made. McLane holds up the currently vacated title as he first introduces Jungle Grrrl. He would introduce Santana, but the despicable acts Tessa Blanchard did to her father, Keny G, Santana is with her father at the hospital. That is tragic, but the show must go on. So the other competitor for this vacated title will be the Born Legend, Tessa Blanchard! Tessa hits the ring and takes the mic while fans boo and jeer. Tessa says Santana isn’t here not because of her dad. Santana’s not here because she’s afraid! Santana isn’t here because she needs oxygen just like her daddy. But Tessa is fine with that, she’ll take on Jungle Grrrl or any woman in WOW. Even if it’s the biggest and baddest- Speaking of, here comes the biggest and baddest, THE BEAST!

Beast introduces herself to Tessa. And if Tessa wants the biggest and baddest, here she is! McLane and the fans agree. Tessa says the bigger they are, the harder they fall. These two may be big and bad, but Beast and JG aren’t on Tessa’s level! Tessa starts shoving but JG scoops her up! Tessa slips out and shoves JG into Beast! Beast fights with JG while Tessa runs away! Fans are thunderous but officials hurry to pull the Queen of the Amazon and the Alpha Female apart! Will Tessa regret standing between these two Women of Wrestling?

 

Introducing: Havoc.

The Monster of Madness started her career 15 years ago, during a time when Women’s Wrestling wasn’t taken as seriously. “From the very beginning, people were telling me, ‘You’re not gonna make it very far here’.” They said she was too big, too different, and she struggled for those first few years. Havoc was trying to figure out who she should be, when one day she realized, she only had to be what she wanted to be. Havoc transformed herself and embraced the darkness.

The “Women’s Revolution” only just started a few years ago, with all these “glamorous girls” showing off what they worked so hard for, when it was women like Havoc who put in the work and carried the load. “There is a reason when these women get in the ring with me, they stare at me from across the ring, terrified.” The mask comes off, and she unleashes the monster! Who will be the first Woman of Wrestling to lose to the madness?

 

Havoc VS Fire!

The Monster of Madness makes her WOW TV debut and it’s against the fan favorite who finally got on a hot streak. Will Havoc put out the flames? Or will she be burned in her debut?

The bell rings and Havoc rushes Fire! Fire dodges and keeps her distance. Havoc laughs as she gives chase, but Fire keeps away. Fire ducks down but Havoc catches her by her hair! Havoc throws a heavy forearm then gets in the ref’s face. Havoc drags Fire up and clams on, to lift Fire high over head! She throws Fire to a corner, then shrieks while fans boo and jeer. Havoc runs in but Fire dodges! Fire comes back with a dropkick! And a corner splash! Fans fire up with Fire as she fires off kicks! Havoc stays up as Fire runs. Fire dodges to dropkick again, but Havoc stays standing. Fire tries a second but Havoc only steps back. Fans fire up as Fire runs, but Havoc boots her right down! Havoc shrieks again as she drags Fire up. Havoc thrashes Fire around and tosses her to the ropes!

Fans continue to cheer Fire on but Havoc is right on her at the ropes. Havoc chokes Fire but then stops at 4. She shouts at the ref to back off, then grins as she stalks Fire to a corner. Havoc puts Fire in a full nelson, then lifts for a stretch! Fire endures while fans rally up. Havoc shifts to a waistlock, wheelbarrow facebuster! Cover, TWO! Fire survives and Havoc is shocked. Havoc stretches Fire back in a modified camel clutch. Fire endures as Havoc gets the full clutch on. Havoc also pulls hair but the ref counts. Havoc clubs Fire down at 4! Fans rain down boos while Havoc looms over Fire. Havoc lifts Fire and snap suplexes hard! Havoc drags Fire to the center and says this is the end. Leg drop misses!

Fire fires back kicks! And a mule kick! Havoc’s down, Fire covers, TWO! Fire climbs up fast, big crossbody! But Havoc catches her easily! Havoc pops Fire up, Air Raid Crash! Cover, Havoc wins!

Winner: Havoc, by pinfall

The Monster of Madness wins her debut and soaks up the heat. Will she only continue to wreak havoc on the WOW roster?

 

WOW reports on a recent incident with one of their wrestlers.

Keta Rush was jumped in the arena alley after a WOW live event. McLane and Keta went to the production truck to examine the footage to shed light on the assailants. The security cameras caught it all as Keta was jumped 2v1. To think it was someone Keta thought of as a friend. Keta wants after her in the ring, but will she get the payback she wants?

 

Kristen Davidson w/ Samantha Smart VS Chantilly Chella!

The Disciplinarian and her supervisor want all the other Women of Wrestling to fall in line, and now they look to straighten out WOW’s number one party girl. Will Davidson and Smart have fun ruining Chella’s fun?

The bell rings and Chella gets the fans hyped up. Davidson just sneers as she lunges at Chella. Chella ducks and rolls and has a good time, but it only annoys Davidson and Smart. Chella and Davidson tie up and go around. Davidson pulls Chella’s hair and puts her in a corner. Davidson gets right in Chella’s face about her behavior, but Chella doesn’t get what’s so bad about partying. Chella simply wishes Davidson peace, but Davidson swings on her! Chella dodges and headlocks back. She gets the headlock takeover, but Davidson stands up. Davidson lifts Chella but Chella counters with another takedown! Davidson prevents a cover and manages to get a headscissors! Chella gets out and gets the headlock back!

Davidson gets up again and pries out to a hammerlock. Davidson gets the headlock now then shifts to a snapmare. Chella handsprings through to get the headlock back again! Davidson powers out but Chella hops up for body scissors, only to get a spinebuster! Cover, TWO! Davidson trash talks Chella and clubs her, then hits a running neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! Smart grows annoyed but Davidson stays on Chella at the ropes. Davidson chokes Chella but the ref backs her off. So Smart chokes Chella while he’s not looking! Smart gets away with it and Davidson drags Chella back up. Davidson gourd busters Chella, then drops the double stomps! Cover, TWO! Davidson keeps her cool as she whips Chella. Chella body scissors again, but into a wheelbarrow facebuster! Cover, TWO! Chella still lives and Smart is annoyed.

Davidson clubs Chella to the ropes, and Smart SMACKS her with the ruler! The referee warns Smart while Davidson puts Chella in a corner. Davidson whips corner to corner but Chella goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO, and Davidson hip attacks Chella fast! Then she goes side to side for the wash! Davidson drags Chella to a cover, TWO!

Chella keeps going, hitting a shining wizard in the corner! She rolls Davidson out then heads up top. Davidson staggers, big crossbody from Chella! Cover, TWO!! Chella can’t believe she didn’t get that. She swings a kick but Davidson ducks! Davidson fireman’s carry, TKO Neckbreaker! Cover, Davidson wins!

Winner: Kristen Davidson by pinfall

The Disciplinarian scratches off one wild child, but with a lot of help from Ms. Smart. Who else will learn not to mess with Davidson and Smart?

 

Razor speaks.

“Who’s next on the Psycho Sisters’ devastation list?” Oh, it’s the Lioness! “Faithy Jay, you think you’re from the streets?” Razor IS the street! The streets raised Razor. She left everything in the street. You think facing Razor is just facing another wrestler? Razor gets what she wants and never backs down. When you step to her, you’ll feel the Razor’s Edge. That WOW first-time show down is next!

 

Reintroducing: Faith the Lioness.

Growing up, her parents encouraged Faith to be herself and never change to fit someone else’s ideals. People have said she’s too tall for this or too thick for that, but she defies them to become who she is today. From ballet to rap to kickboxing, Faith has always had pride in who she was. She wants to blend dancing, music and wrestling into one, but her debut was a bit rough against The Beast. But even so, like a lion, she faces everything without fear. Faith was able to accept her defeat because of how great her debut felt. She can’t really put the feeling into words, but she knows she wants more. Losing only makes you stronger, because it’s about getting back up. Will Faith stand strong and get that first win?

 

Razor w/ Fury VS Faith the Lioness!

The Daughter of Darkness had her WOW TV debut and was successful. Now it’s time to see if the Vanguard of Violence can do the same. Will Razor cut down Faith’s pride? Or will the lioness finally sink her teeth into a victory?

The bell rings and the two approach fast and furious! Faith pushes Razor but she turns it around to put her in the corner. Razor SLAPS Faith, so Faith shoves Razor! Faith gets a headlock takeover fast, and grinds Razor to the mat. Razor stands up and powers out, only for Faith to run her over. Things speed up and Faith shows her agility! She gets another headlock takeover! Razor headscissor counters but Faith pops right out. They speed up again, Faith goes Matrix! She mule kicks and whips but Razor reverses. Fury swipes at Faith’s feet, and then Razor clobbers her! Cover, TWO! Razor grits her teeth as she drags Faith up and clubs her down. Razor stomps Faith to the ropes, then fakes an eyelash in her eye. The ref doesn’t see Fury choke Faith on the ropes!

Fans boo as Fury gets away with it, and Razor goes after Faith in a corner. Razor clubs away then whips corner to corner. Razor runs in for a big splash! She snapmares Faith down hard, then heads to a corner. She runs out, but Faith dodges the senton! Faith Penalty Kicks Razor, then scoop slams her down! Cover, TWO! Faith keeps her focus as she heads to a corner. She hops up but Razor clubs her down! Razor drags Faith up for another hard snapmare, and into a chinlock. Razor grinds Faith to the mat but fans rally up. Fury trolls the fans while Faith feeds off their energy. Jawbreaker frees Faith! Razor staggers while Faith runs, but Razor runs her over! Cover, TWO!

Razor grows frustrated and she takes it out on Faith with more clubbing forearms. But Faith CHOPS back! Faith runs into a kick, and Razor hits The Stroke, half-nelson facebuster! Razor doesn’t end it there, she drags Faith up into a camel clutch! Faith endures as Razor grinds her forearms and digs her nails in! Faith gets an arm free, and then the other! She slips out the back but Razor clobbers her! Razor stomps Faith then bumps her off the mat. Faith crawls to a corner but Razor stomps her again. Razor grabs the arms for a surfboard stomp! Razor drags Faith to a cover, TWO! Faith lives and Razor is furious! Razor bumps Faith off buckles hard, then throws CHOPS! Razor whips corner to corner and runs in, but Faith boots her back! Faith roundhouses Razor down!

Fans fire up as Faith climbs up high. But Fury goes after a leg! Faith kicks Fury away then leaps at Razor for a BIG missile dropkick! Cover, Faith wins!!

Winner: Faith the Lioness by pinfall

The fans give a standing ovation for Faith’s first WOW TV victory! But Fury ruins the moment by attacking from behind! The Psycho Sisters beat down Faith, then toss her out of the ring! Fans boo but the damage is done. Will Fury and Razor continue to do what they want to every Woman of Wrestling they encounter?

 

Coming soon: Nikki Krampus.

As her last name suggests, the Norwegian Nightmare embodies the fearsome might of the punisher of misdeeds. She makes her debut next week, who will be the first to face their retribution?

 

Vacated WOW World Championship: Jungle Grrrl VS Tessa Blanchard!

The Born Legend loves to talk trash about the Wonder Woman of Wrestling, Santana Garrett, but she should actually be thankful to her. If not for that double pin, Tessa would have lost last week’s Triple Threat and the Queen of the Amazon would again reign. Now there’s a second chance for the third-generation wrestler, will she make the best of this golden opportunity?

Introductions are made, the belt is raised, and the streamers fly! Fans are already fired up with the bell, and Tessa circles with JG. They tie up, Tessa gets a wristlock. JG rolls and rolls to get free but Tessa backs off. Tessa and JG tie up again and Tessa gets a waistlock. JG standing switches but Tessa snapmares through to a chinlock. Tessa grinds JG down but JG gets up and works her way out. JG gets a keylock but Tessa reverses to a hammerlock to roll JG! ONE, and JG sweeps to cover! ONE, and Tessa returns the sweep, ONE! Tessa gets up but JG scares her off with a step! Tessa bails out and gets a breather. JG lets Tessa take her time, and Tessa returns to tie up again.

JG gets the headlock now and grinds Tessa down. Tessa tries but can’t power out of JG’s grip. Tessa fights with body shots and powers out, but JG runs her over! JG runs but Tessa speeds things up, only to run into a dropkick! Tessa scrambles to a corner and JG whips. Tessa reverses and rocks JG with a forearm against the ropes! She whips JG into ropes, then runs, but JG dodges the rope attack just in time! Tessa hits the ropes herself and is stinging! Fans rally up as JG drags Tessa up in a waistlock. Tessa standing switches and pushes JG to forearm her on the rebound. Tessa runs again, and dropkicks JG into the ropes! Cover, ONE!! JG is tougher than Tessa thought, but Tessa keeps her cool.

Tessa stalks JG to a corner to rock her with another right forearm! She whips JG corner to corner, then runs in, but into a boot! JG hops up but Tessa sweeps the legs! Draping code breaker! Cover, ONE!? Tessa is shocked JG is this tough! Fans rally up and it only eggs Tessa on. Tessa drags JG up to whip, but JG reverses to another dropkick! Both women are down and crawling for opposite corners. They run at each other and JG hits lariat after lariat! JG hits a corner shining wizard, then a BIG German Suplex! Bridging cover, TWO! JG gets up and drags Tessa up. JG fireman’s carry while fans duel. Tessa fights out, to a hammerlock, but JG powers out! JG hits a leaping knee! Then a scoop but Tessa slips out! Tessa wrenches, sweeps the legs, armbar!

JG endures as Tessa makes the armbar part Triangle! But the legs are on the throat, that’s a choke, the referee will not count this submission! JG powers up as Tessa keeps squeezing. JG deadlifts Tessa but bombs her into the referee! The referee is down and out of the ring! JG scoops Tessa, Jungle Driver!! JG keeps going, climbing up top. Fans fire up as JG leaps, Jungle Splash!! Cover, but there’s NO ref to count! JG’s had Tessa down for more than long enough but where’s a ref?! Here’s the BEAST instead! The Beast SPEARS Jungle Grrrl! Fans are thunderous as Beast drags JG up again, for the BEAST BOMB! The Alpha Female decimates JG and then drags the ref into the ring! Tessa crawls to a cover, the ref counts it, Tessa wins!!

Winner: Tessa Blanchard, by pinfall; NEW WOW World Champion

The Beast has made her mark! The Born Legend is the new champion, and Jungle Grrrl was pinned for the first time in her WOW career! But of course, The Beast still wants the belt for her own, and Tessa shouts that she’s not afraid. Will Tessa be able to retain when The Beast is the one who helped her win? What will former WOW World Champion, Santana Garrett, have to say about this?

 


 

My Thoughts:

What a wild episode of WOW! Havoc, who is of course Jessicka Havok, had a decent delivery of her promo. She gets points for taking up the banner of the independent wrestling women who got the ball rolling for the Women’s (R)Evolution as coined by WWE. But she loses points for me for being yet another of the “inner darkness” kind of Heels I’m seeing in not just WOW but a few other promotions. Be proud of being big and tough, but be different. Especially when the Psycho Sisters are already filling that role of the dark, edgy Heels. Unless she becomes the third sister…

Razor VS Faith was a good match, and Faith is clearly talented. Faith feels like she could get a top Face push down the road the way she was booked against The Beast and then here against Razor. I’m still thinking the WOW World Tag Team Championships are going to be revived and a team like the Psycho Sisters would be a top Heel choice for those. Davidson VS Chella was an okay match, but there are a lot of Heels with Managers right now. I’m wondering if Davidson & Smart will get a dedicated opponent for the story their gimmick tells.

Of all the possibilities for their world title, I didn’t think they’d reset with Santana bowing out. That’s a great Face move putting family over career but it really gave Tessa Blanchard a big second chance. I did call The Beast getting involved, and it worked out perfectly to get some heat on both her and Tessa. Jungle Grrrl VS The Beast is still coming, no doubt about that. That match might be hotter than Santana coming back to get at Tessa. Not only that, but I’m hoping WOW decides to give us an episode where it’s just those two matches so that each one gets 20 to 25 minutes. As fun as it’s been to always have three to four matches a night, having two amazing matches would really help WOW gain some momentum.

My Score: 8.3/10

Andrew’s Impact Wrestling Uncaged Ratings & Review

With the tag titles changing hands last week, do we see more changes with Impact Wrestling Uncaged?

Published

With the tag titles changing hands last week, do we see more changes with Impact Wrestling Uncaged?

The pseudo-PPV atmosphere is sure to bring in more consistent viewership, but they’re in an interesting spot. Taya and Tessa are really the only two credible Knockouts unless Gail comes out of retirement (since Rosemary, Su and Jordynne are in the same storyline), so we’ll probably see this get extended somehow. As for the other title match, The Machine has a lot of support and wrestling fans all know the money is in the chase. So I could see Cage getting “screwed” again, but I’d much rather see Cage with the title.

So let’s get hype for the show with a video package of the returning Reno Scum!

Ratings:

  • Knockout’s Championship Street Fight: Tessa Blanchard vs Taya Valkyrie (c) – Taya retains via Double Footstomp through Table – *** 3/4
  • ‘All Ego’ Ethan Page vs Willie Mack: Mack  wins via Stunner – ** 1/2
  • Elimination 4v4: Team Impact (Fallah Bahh, Sami Callihan, Eli Drake & Eddie Edwards) vs Team AAA (Puma King, Psycho Clown, Hijo del Vikingo & Aerostar): Team AAA 4-3 – *** 3/4
  • Fatal 4 Way Impact World Championship: Killer Kross vs Moose vs Johnny Impact (c) vs Brian Cage: Johnny retains via Starship Pain on Moose – *** 1/4

Review Notes:

Both women come out with throwback shirts. Tessa comes out with the old school Four Horsemen shirt and Taya comes out in her Perros de Mal shirt (old Triple A stable she was in with Perro Aguayo Jr). This match was a little awkward at times, and the first table they had ” La Wera Loca vs Diamond” painted on, didn’t break after two spear attempts. Really good hardcore style action, with chairs, insults, ring posts and another table. Definitely more of a brawl than wrestling, but after the table didn’t break the subsequent spots seemed to be a little off. Still a solid match, entertaining to watch, good way to start off the Uncaged show. Dios perdona, los perros no.

After a quick promo with Team Impact, Scarlett joins Melissa during the commercial break moment and she’s barely dressed and her and Melissa start doing squats. I mean they’re doubling down on sex sells, and I’m not even mad.

Mack and Page was a solid match. Good brawling, Willie’s agility outlasted Page’s strikes. One would assume the winner should be closer to an X Division title shot at least. So it should be interesting where this leads.

Killer Kross follows that with his typical chilling, slightly unhinged promo, and damn it was well done.

The interesting thing about the commercial break stuff tonight is Melissa doing live interviews with different people. It’s kinda neat, like extra content.

Team Triple A has a clap back promo after the commercial, which says the Cup is staying in Mexico. If memory serves, Team Triple A beat Team TNA in the first World X Cup, so I’m curious if they’ll pull from that for a storyline.

Sami Callihan calls out Swann one more time, Swann throws the shirt at Callihan, so a fight ensues. Swann gets the best of things momentarily, but an eye gauge allows Sami the opening to toss Rich around a little, Piledriver him on the stage and then Powerbomb him off the stage through a table. So I guess Sami will get the X Divison shot, but might have to go through Willie Mack first in the following weeks before Rebellion.

A lot of fun fast paced action, good dives, good strikes, nice story telling and only one slip so far from Aerostar. Eli Drake is the first one eliminated by Puma King because he tries to tell Eddie to not use the kendo stick, but tries to use it himself, Eddie catches him and takes his stick back, then pushing Eli. So one Gedo Clutch later, Eli is eliminated by pinfall. Fallah Bah eliminates Vikingo after a Twisted Running Powerslam. Aerostar eliminates Bahh after a Crucifix Pin when Bahh misses the Banzai Drop. Boston Knee Party from Eddie eliminates Aerostar. Piledriver from Sami eliminates Puma King. Two on one advantage with Sami and Eddie against Psycho Clown. Eddie hits a Boston Knee Party lays out Psycho Clown, but Sami pushes Eddie off and tries to steal the spotlight, only a two count, Psycho Rolls Up Sami for the pinfall elimination. Eddie has Psycho on the ropes, but Eli returns, takes Kenny the Kendo Stick and distracts Eddie. Then he hits Eddie to give Psycho a shot to hit a Backstabber, followed up the La Magistral for the victory. So Impact kinda played themselves, but it was a damn good match with a lot to unpack.

Melissa finally returns after a few commercial breaks off, with Sami Callihan and David Crist. This was ridiculous but great. Just erratic idiocy, they steal Melissa’s sandals at some point, David sings “Hey there Samuel” and Sami does a pitch like a dating service while Melissa is getting her sandals. So dumb, but great.

Small promotional video package for Reno Scum. Returning to Impact for the first time since the first wave of GFW “invasion” (nearly 2 years).

A quick little moment with Dark Allie, Su Yung and Rosemary, followed by a commercial with Melissa and KM & Fallah Bahh. Very funny, Melissa plays off the wrestlers well. She needs to stick around since she’s got a nice personality and seems to work well with most of the guys.

Scarlett with a weird video package, her in a bed, a little moan and showing cleavage is her formula. So if it ain’t broke, I’m not gonna fix it, shut up, stop judging me!

LAX joins Melissa before the main event and the Latina comes out in her. She’s more animated that usual, very fun and entertaining. She even busts their chops a little, but they take it in stride and seem to enjoy each other’s company.

Since the match starts with only about 12 minutes before time limit the match wasn’t going to be a technical masterpiece, but for what it was it was fun. It was more of a brawl, since there were 3 bigger guys. Kross had a bunch of moments looking like a beat, Cage looked like a million bucks hitting the Drill Claw on both Moose and Kross. But Johnny pulled the opportunistic thing, and while Kross and Cage were tied up, Johnny pulls Moose to the corner, barely hits Starship Pain and sneaks in a pinfall before Cage finishes the Drill Claw + pin on Kross.  So Johnny retains while looking like a punk, and the crowd wanted nothing to do with him. Terminator claps most of the match.

Overall Score: 7.5/10

Solid solid show from start to finish. Tessa and Taya got things kicked off well, Melissa doing backstage interviews as the Twitch commercial break stuff was great. World Cup match was fun and set up a few storylines for the Impact stars while Team Triple A got the home field advantage win. Main event was a little disappointing to be honest. Johnny has worn out his fan support both in Mexico and on Twitch chat. Granted yes, I’m hopeful this is building towards a big blow off at Rebellion, maybe with Cage going over and Austin Aries returning, but I guess we’ll have to see.

Also from the main event, we see some cracks in the Moose and Kross alliance, so that could definitely be an interesting match in the near future.

So yeah, we have a lot to chew on moving into TV tapings for the shows leading up to Rebellion, but from a completely playlist mentality view point, Cage got screwed. Brian Cage better be getting this damn title soon, or I want him to put Don Callis through the announce table.

Now the weekly Twitch viewers portion:

  • Week 1: High – 10,350 / Low – 8,500
  • Week 2: High – 8,000 / Low – 6,500 
  • Week 3: High – 8,500 / Low – 7,900  
  • Week 4: High – 7,100 / Low – 5,300
  • Week 5: High – 7,450 / Low – 5,650
  • Uncaged: High – 9,000/ Low – 8,000

Well it looks like people just need a reason to tune in. Not only was this week mostly main event talent, but since the event had was named, I feel like people just expected better quality. So still no record breaking high, but solid numbers throughout the entire show.
