OVW TV July 14, 2007 review.

I admit, it’s been awhile since I’ve been able to watch OVW.   If I’m off on anyone’s name or a storyline, I apologize, but I’ll try to get better.

Scene from earlier today.  Cody Rhodes and Sean Spears challenge each other to a cage match tonight.

Dean Hill and Kenny Bolin introduce the show.

Mike Kruel (with Roucka) introduces his special guest (and ECW champion) Johnny Nitro.  Nitro insults CM Punk and the OVW fans.  Nitro says he will fight anyone tonight for the ECW title.  Beth Phoenix comes out to introduce Jacob Duncan.  Kruel and Nitro are too frightened by Duncan to wrestle him.  Kruel calls out Ox to wrestle Jacob Duncan instead.


Ox vs. Jacob Duncan.  The referee calls the match after Nitro hits Beth Phoenix with the ECW title.


Charles “the Hammer” Evans vs. Festus Dalton.  Fast win for Evans. The Hammer says he needs fast money and calls out Antoni Polaski to take his slam challenge for $2500.


Armando Alejandro Estrada introduces the contestants for the “Divalympics”.  All the OVW divas are in the ring.  Tonight is a very special “Yo Mama” edition of “Diss the Diva”.  Representing the faces is ODB, representing the heels is Roucka.  It’s as awful as it sounds.  Roucka puts in a poor performance that results in an all Diva brawl with team ODB standing triumphant at the end.


Colt Cabana, Atlas DaBone, Austin the Idol Stevens call out Team America (Kruel, Roucka, Kozlov, Los Locos and the Belgian Brawler).  Brawler and Locos brawl with the three faces.  Everyone abandons Kruel as the faces gang up on him.  Kruel is about to be beaten down when the rest of Team America attacks the faces from behind.


The Major Brothers vs. the James Boys (OVW Southern tag team champions).  DQ win for the Major Brothers while the James Boys beat down the Brothers post match.  Cryme Tyme run out for the save.


A steel cage is set up to hype up Cody Runnels vs. Sean Spears cage match on July 20. Runnels is in the ring when Spears climbs up from under the ring and hits Runnels with a chair.  Runnels and Spears are locked into the cage with no official.   Spears beats down Runnels with the chair for awhile, then begins ramming Runnels into the cage.  Runnels is busted open.  Other OVW superstars try to get into the ring to help but Spears keeps knocking them back with the chair.  Mike Mondo gets in the ring to help Runnels at the same moment that Spears unlocks the cage and runs out.  Spears slams the cage door in Runnels face one last time before leaving.

ECW review July 17, 2007

Live from Laredo, Texas

Joey Styles and Tazz are waiting for Johnny Nitro’s press conference.  Nitro’s spokesman says that “tonight is the last night you will see Johnny Nitro in an ECW ring.”
Tazz and Styles are stunned by this.

CM Punk vs. Elijah Burke.  Punk pins Burke after the GTS:  Go To Sleep.


Highlights of last week’s debut of Big Daddy V.

Matt Striker introduces Big Daddy V.

Big Daddy V vs. Tim Storm.  V wins easily after a tilt-a-whirl slam.


The Miz says that all women love him and want to be with him.  Extreme Expose comes out with a “surprise” for Miz.  Miz receives a “private” dance from the ladies.  Kelly Kelly still has not learned how to dance.

Joey Styles and Tazz question what’s going on with Johnny Nitro.

Kevin Thorn vs. Tommy Dreamer.  Thorn wins after ramming Dreamer’s shoulder into the ring post.  Thorn hits the Original Sin on Dreamer after the match.


Johnny Nitro’s spokesman (Paul McBride) comes out.  He lists  Nitro’s accomplishments and then announces that Nitro has changed his name.  Out comes the new John Morrison.  Morrison tells us how amazing he is, repeatedly.  He says that CM Punk has no chance this Sunday at the Great American Bash.  Punk comes out and Morrison beats him with the microphone.  Morrison leaves Punk laying in the ring as we go off the air.

Friday Night Smackdown review July 20, 2007.

Friday Night Smackdown review July 20, 2007.

Teddy Long announces that Edge is injured and is relinquishing the title tonight.  Edge comes out, and asks for “appropriate lighting” for his difficult moment.  After talking about his achievements and injuries, Edge plays a tribute to himself, to the tune of “Simply the Best”.   It’s actually a damn good tribute video, but most of WWE’s are.  Teddy Long announces a 20 man battle royal for the vacant title.  Edge kisses the belt goodbye and sadly hands it to Long.


Footage of Mark Henry, Chris Masters, Eugene, and Kane warming up for the Battle Royal.

Torrie Wilson vs. Victoria.
I don’t know when or how this happened, but Torrie is showing much improvement tonight.  Victoria wins with a Widow’s Peak.

Matt Hardy  vs. Kenny Dykstra.  Matt Hardy wins with the Twist of Fate off the second rope.


MVP is interviewed in the back.


Kane vs. Batista for the Number one contender spot.  Great Khali comes out and attacks both men, the match is called for outside interference.  Kane and Batista team up to clothesline Khali out of the ring.  Teddy Long comes out and announces that due to Khali’s interference it is now the Great Khali vs. Batista vs. Kane in a triple threat match for the World title at the Great American Bash.
