June 8th, 2012
Daytona Beach, Florida
The show begins with just a black screen, when "Let The Madness Begin" by Fozzy fades in to where you can barely hear it. Then a blue "R" comes up, followed by a "W' and an "F". The music starts to pick up and "Redemption Wrestling Federation" comes up under "RWF" and you hear a loud cheer behind the song. Next it did a pan-around of the arena when it stopped in front of the titantron. Then a series of pyro went off to a big pop. Once the crowd died down, an iconic "Dong" sounded through the arena and the crowd went crazy as Mark Calloway walked out to the ring. He announces a battle royal for the vacant Television Title, involving everyone not participating in the World Championship Tournament, which will be an 8-man tournament featuring the 4 biggest heels and the 4 biggest faces in RWF. CM Punk comes out and says that the tournament is the worst idea he's heard in awhile. He says that he should just automatically be crowned World Champion. Calloway tells Punk to stay in the ring, because he's going to be in the first match with Samoa Joe.
Samoa Joe vs. CM Punk w/ Colt Cabana
(World Championship Tournament Quarterfinals)
CM Punk has control for most of the match after hitting suicide dive from the top rope, but Samoa Joe broke out and rolled out of the ring to catch his breath. Punk followed him out and Joe irish whipped him into the barrier, and hitting a sidewalk slam on him. He picked up Punk and threw him back into the ring and climbed up to the tope rope. Punk quickly got up and hit him with a Hurricanrana while Joe was on the rope. Punk picked him up and put him over his shoulders, barely. Joe wiggled out of his clutch but before he could do anything, Punk hit him with a step-up high knee and picked up a 3-count.
Winner: CM Punk by pinfall (9:12)
We come back to see Mark Calloway behind his desk with a big smirk on his face. Antonio Banks (MVP) bursts through the doors, he complains that he's a shoe-in to get the Television Championship, but Mark's making him go up against 15 other people. Calloway says that he don't think Banks will make the final two. If he makes it that far, he'll give him a Television Title Match at Golden Clash. Burke accepts and takes off.
We go back to the ring and theres 14 men in the ring. The ring announcer announces Antonio Banks and he comes out to the ring.
15-Man Battle Royal for the Television Champion
It's pure chaos for the first few minutes of the match as bodies are flying all over the ring. Ricky Steamboat, Jr. goes out first followed by Chris Sabin and Colt Cabana. TNT cuts to a commercial. When the show returns, there is five left: Antonio Banks, Low Ki, Orlando Jordan, Percy Watson, and Finlay. Finlay and Low Ki are teaming up against Orlando Jordan, Percy Watson has Banks cornered, stomping on him. Jordan pushes Low Ki off of him and throws Finlay over the ropes, taking us to the final four. Percy tries to throw Banks over but he catches himself on the mat. Before Watson can think, Low Ki runs at him and throws him over the ropes. Orlando Jordan then grabs Low Ki and attempts to throw him over with a Running Powerslam, but as Jordan was throwing Low Ki down, Low Ki grabbed Jordan's head with his legs and the ropes with his hands and threw him over with a hurricanrana. Heads up now with Antonio Banks and Low Ki going one-on-one. Banks grabs him and puts him in a head-lock, but Low Ki kicks out. Banks grabs him and throws him against the ropes, expecting a bounce-back. Low Ki, however, springboards off the ropes and hits Banks with a Tidal Wave. He jumps to the top rope, but Banks is too quick. He jumps up there with Low Ki and grabs him. He attempts to lift him up but fails, as Low Ki pushes him off the top turnbuckle, and onto the ground. Giving Low Ki the win, and the belt.
Winner and NEW Television Champion: Low Ki (14:45)
We come back to TNT and see an empty locker-room. Soon filled by Ric Flair, Batista, Ricky Steamboat Jr, and Tyler Black. Flair cusses Steamboat and Black for not winning the gold, calling Steamboat "Damn disgrace to North Carolina". He then looks at Batista and says "Go out there and beat RVD tonight. Show him, who the real ****ing show is." The camera goes to an interview room where Torrie Wilson is standing with Low Ki, holding the Television Championship. Torrie asks him how it feels to be the first RWF Television Champion. Low Ki says it feels great, but it feels even better considering that he beat out 14 other men for it. He said it's a great accomplishment and goes on to say that he'll have a great reign. His speech is interrupted by Antonio Banks. He says 'Taker promised him a match at Golden Clash if he could make it to the final two. So at Golden Clash, his "great reign" will come to an end. He is interrupted by static from a television set, the camera turns around to the TV and it shows someone with their face censored. He says to be patient, because he's coming for that title. They won't know when or where, but he's coming for it.
The camera goes back to the ring, you hear "The Whole Freakin' Show" blare through the speakers and Rob Van Dam walks out to the ring. When he is introduced, "I Walk Alone" plays and Batista walks down, followed by Ric Flair.
After the match, Ric Flair came in and argued with Batista, then Batista got up and chased RVD backstage. With Flair slowly following. JBL and Matt Striker wished up a good weekend, as the first episode of Mayhem went off air.
Rob Van Dam vs. Dave Batista
(World Championship Tournament Quarterfinals)
Great match as RVD and Batista trade signature moves, around the 7 minute mark, Rob Van Dam hit a Rolling Thunder on Batista, and went for the pin which got only a two count. RVD picked Batista up, but Batista got free by sending an elbow to the gut of RVD. Batista irish whipped RVD to the ropes, he bounced back and Batista hit him with a spinebuster. Batista crouched down around the turnbuckle and RVD slowly got up around the opposite one, Batista darted towards him and attempted a spear, but RVD moved and Batista went flying through the turnbuckle. Batista sat down in front of the turnbuckle and RVD dashed towards him and dropkicked him, hitting a Van Terminator on him. Batista laid in the middle of the ring, and RVD went up to the top ropes and jumped off, completing a Five-Star Frog Splash, he went for the pin and got the 3-count.
Winner: Rob Van Dam by pinfall (15:32)
