GWE Dynamite! 04-17-2008 Verizon Wireless Arena, Manchester, New Hampshire
As “welcome to the jungle” is blaring through the speakers, the camera goes to a jam packed Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, where the rabid GWE fans are ready for another exciting episode of GWE Dynamite! As numerous fans show off their homemade signs, the camera cuts to the announce booth, where Joey Styles and Mike Bucci are ready to welcome us all!
Ladies and gentlemen, good evening! I’m Joey Styles, alongside Mike Bucci and we welcome you to another edition of GWE Dynamite! Tonight, as you have read on GWE.com, Brock Lesnar finally faces off against Paul Wight in a Great Challenge rematch!
Oh my god, Joey! What a main event! A match, that won’t be like any other match, baby! Paul Wight won’t be caught off guard a second time, that’s for sure!
And that’s not all for tonight, Mike, as we’ve got a very special superstar making his GWE debut tonight! He’s from Jamaica and his name is Kofi Kingston!
“Yo, you’re dealing with the X-factor!” hits the P.A. system as the X-factors, Sean Waltman and Ken Doane come out to a mixed reaction from the crowd. Doane and Waltman are laughing away, seemingly not caring about the fans’ opinions on them, as they make their way to the ring.
But first off, ladies and gentlemen, a very interesting tag team match. The Tag Team champions, will fight in a non-title match against the men we are seeing coming down to the ring right now, the X-factors.
I’ve been looking forward to this all week, baby! I wonder what this new team, that the X-factors is, will bring to the table against the undefeated Tag Team Champions. Let’s do this!
“Bawitdaba” hits the P.A. system as one half of the Global Tag Team Champions, Kid Kash walks out to a good pop from the crowd. He walks to the ring and waits about five feet in front of it, looks to his left and from the crowd, James Gibson, his Invader partner joins him, as the duo slides into the ring and gets ready for the match.
Non-title contest: The Invaders© vs. The X-factors
Summary: A surprisingly high-paced match-up here. Kid Kash started out against Ken Doane and that proved to be quite the cruiserweight encounter. Kash had the upper hand in the early going, nailing Doane with a back body drop, followed by a low dropkick to the jaw. Kash went for the early cover, but Doane kicked out. Doane then got into the match, nailing Kash with a quick enzuigiri. Doane tagged Waltman in, but Kash was able to tag Gibson in at the same time. Gibson and Waltman chose for a more slow approach, as Gibson, immediately grounded Waltman with a side headlock takedown. Waltman got out of the headlock quickly though and an all out brawl commenced, as the two engaged in a collar-and-elbow tie-up, that took them brawling all around the ring. Eventually, Waltman got the upperhand and nailed Gibson with a dropkick. Waltman and Doane then isolated Gibson with some quick tags, focusing on Gibson’s back. The X-factors impressed here tonight, with some nifty tag team action, something that wasn’t expected from this new team. Gibson finally was able to get out of his predicament, when he got the hot tag to Kash. Kash made quick work of Doane, nailing a hurricanrana, followed by multiple flying forearms. The crowd was hot at this point, as Kash was firing up, getting ready to hit Doane with the Dead Level. Kash got Doane in the front facelock and hoisted him up in the air, but Doane managed to shift his weight, flipping over to his feet, and nailing Kash with a quick, yet very effective neckbreaker. Doane went for the cover, but only got a two count. Doane then looked at Kash in maniacal fashion, scouting Kash for the RK-Doane. Kash stumbled to his feet and turned around, but managed to throw Doane off of him, when Doane went for the RK-Doane! Doane got up and turned around, only to be nailed with a brutal DDT from Kash! Waltman sensed trouble and left the ring apron, going to the time keeper’s table and grabbing not one, but all two tag team belts! Waltman got into the ring, with one belt exposed and the other, hidden behind his back. The ref notices the belt and pulls it out of Waltman’s hand. He doesn’t want Waltman using the title belt as a weapon! What about the other one, referee?! With the ref out of the picture, Waltman approached Gibson, who got into the ring and drove the title belt straight into Gibson’s skull! Gibson pummeled to the mat and out of the ring, while Kash turned around and got suffered the same faith as his partner, being whacked in the head as well with his own title belt! The crowd were fuming mad, as Waltman smiled and threw away the belt, just as the ref was done putting the other one away. Waltman rooted his partner on, padding him on the back, trying to make him get to his feet more quickly. Doane finally got to his feet, just as Kash was on his knees, still dizzy from the brutal championship shot. Doane got back to his senses and scouted Kash, who stumbled to his feet. Kash turned around only to be nailed with a devastating RK-Doane! The crowd showered Doane in heat, as he went for the cover and got the very dubious victory!
Winners (6:15) Ken Doane and Sean Waltman, The X-factors!
What a robbery, Mike! Sean Waltman used the tag team belt to knock out the champions and scrape an undeserving victory!
So Sean bent the rules a lil’ bit. Big deal, Joey! The Invaders did it all the time before they became champs, so this is more, MORE than deserved!
That’s an awful thing to say, Mike! How could you approve off such heinous actions?!
I don’t know, Joey, I just do!
We see The X-factors walking up the entrance ramp with huge smiles on their faces, as the camera switches to a backstage area. We see Matt Sydal grabbing a cup of coffee, just as Rey Mysterio pops into screen.
Rey! How are ya man?
Hey, man, I just wanted to say thanks for last week. Carlito, he lost it there, man, he was crazy! I mean…
Well, well, well, look at de lovebirds!
The camera turns to the left and Carlito is standing a small distance away, looking far from pleased.
YOU (pointing at Sydal
)! Why the hell did you mess with Carlito’s bizness last week? Huh? No, don’t answer dat! There’s a saying, where Carlito lives. You mess with Carlito’s bizness and Carlito messes with your bizness! Comprende? I’m gonna make sure that you’re life here, is gonna be a living hell!
Come on, man…
And as for you! Carlito hasn’t changed his mind, Rey. I WILL end your career. So the two of you better grow eyes in the back of yer heads. Coz Carlito can show up when you least expect it. Remember dat!
Carlito lifts both of his eyebrows quickly, before walking off, leaving Sydal and Mysterio a confused duo.
When we return, we see that Super Crazy is standing in the middle of the ring, awaiting his opponent for tonight.
“Everybody dance now” blares through the speakers, as Kofi Kingston comes jiggin’ and jivin’ onto the stage. He is wearing green and yellow trunks, with matching boots and sweat band. He jogs towards the ring, looking ever so excited.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, it’s debut time! Or should I say, party time?! Kofi Kingston is coming to the ring, at this point, and he is ready to throw a party! In the ring that is, against Super Crazy! Will he be able to win upon his debut?
Why the hell is he dancing like that? I hope his wrestling’s better than his dancing, Joey!
Kofi Kingston vs. Super Crazy
Summary: This match’s only purpose was to put over Kofi Kingston in his debut match, and that was pretty clear from the get go. Kofi immediately took control from the get go, nailing some quick fists and knees to the gut. Kofi dished out a quick gutwrench suplex, before bouncing off the ropes, “pumping up” and hitting a double leg leg drop. Kofi went for the cover, but Super Crazy managed to kick out. Kofi then furthered his dominance, hitting a springboard crossbody, after stunning Super Crazy with a knee smash. Crazy didn’t give up yet though and even got into the match-up briefly, when he nailed a quick enzuigiri to Kofi. Super Crazy tried to take advantage of the moment and hit a springboard moonsault, but Kofi rolled out of the way. Both men got to a vertical base at the same time, but Kofi was the quicker man, immediately hitting a corkscrew roundhouse kick, the PARTY KICK! Kofi covered Super Crazy and got the relatively easy victory.
Winner (2:48) Kofi Kingston!
Well, what do you know, an impressive first match by Kofi Kingston!
You can say that again, Joey! All the idiotic dancing aside, he’s impressive in the ring! Keep the good stuff coming, Kofi!
In the ring, Kofi is celebrating on all four turnbuckles, before being handed a microphone. Apparently, he has something to say.
: My name…is Kofi Kingston. And it…is…PARTY TIME!
Kofi throws down the mic, as “Everybody dance now” hits and the crowd pops. They have already accepted this unique superstar!
We then go to a backstage area, where Torrie Wilson is walking down a hallway. Torrie suddenly bumps into Jillian Hall, who looks very angry for one reason or another.
You, just the tramp I was looking for!
Those two clowns you manage, Kidman and Kazarian, they robbed my stallions from a certain championship opportunity and I don’t like that! And neither do Doug and Danny!
Billy and Frankie, they did everything they could to win. That’s called a winner’s mentality, Jillian, perhaps something you could learn to your boys.
Listen, you no-good, washed up tranny! There is only one team, deserving off a shot at the tag team championships, and that’s The Basham Brothers. So I’ve got a message that you could tell to your boys. The Basham Brothers want a rematch for a shot at the Global Tag Team Championships. And they want it next week! Oh, and maybe, you could add this to the message…
Jillian smiles, before slapping Torrie across the face with authority! Jillian immediately walks off, not giving Torrie a chance to retaliate. Torrie feels her cheek, looking surprised and upset, before we go to a commercial break.
When we return, we see a New Hampshire local standing in the middle of the ring. He’s geared up, and ready to go, but against who?
“Carmina Burana” suddenly hits the P.A. system and it is “The Divine One” Mark Jindrak, along with his priest, Johnny Parisi, who comes out to face the New Hampshire local. The local hero seems to be a little scared going into a match with “The Divine One” and rightfully so, cause Mark Jindrak has never been pinned since debuting on Dynamite!
“The Divine One” Mark Jindrak(w/Priest Parisi) vs. New Hampshire Local
Summary: Did anyone think the local had any chance in this match? Of course not, and he didn’t even get one shot in. Jindrak immediately opened with a brutal clothesline, folding the local wrestler up. Jindrak immediately picked his opponent back up, applying a devastating bear hug. Jindrak lets go quite quickly, before turning the local hero around, and nailing him with a huge Mark of Excellence! Jindrak covers with authority and scores perhaps the easiest victory of his career.
Winner (1:13) “The Divine One” Mark Jindrak!
Is there any stopping Mark Jindrak, Mike?
No, there’s not, Joey! Have you seen any of his matches? Not one of his opponents has been able to lay a hand on him! It’s crazy! I wonder, Joey, I truly wonder, if there’s anybody on the entire GWE roster who can stop this man! Or should I say, God?!
We see Parisi bowing down to his God, Mark Jindrak, as the camera switches to the back.
In the back, we see Dynamite General Manager Eric Bischoff talking to Matt “The Train” Bloom. Both men receive a ton of heat.
Matt, we’ve got to postpone your championship match as long as possible. So here’s the plan. I am going to put Rob Van Dam in the most grueling, the most brutal matches possible against the most extreme of opponents. And after a few weeks, Matt, all you’ll have to do, is scrape together Van Dam’s bones to make the pin. And when all’s set and done…you’ll be the champion, Matt! And rightfully so…
Suddenly Bischoff looks to his right and looks a little shocked for a split second, before smiling profusely.
Well speak of the devil! It’s the champ himself, Rob Van Dam!
Van Dam steps into shot to a huge pop from the crowd. Van Dam doesn’t look too pleased, as Bischoff is just smiling away.
What’s up, champ?
Rob Van Dam:
Cut the bullcrap, Bischoff! How could you even be smiling right now, when Hulk Hogan, our chairman, is in the hospital right now, recovering from injuries, caused by you and that oversized cockroach over there!
Huge pop for Van Dam’s insults!
Listen. Hulk Hogan got all that was coming to him! And the fact of the matter is, Rob, Matt Bloom is the number one contender to your championship, Hulk Hogan is out of commission, and as for me, well, from now on…I’M THE ONE, WHO’S CALLING THE SHOW! Whether you, or anyone else, likes it, or not!
Mega heat for Eric Bischoff
But let’s get back to business here, Rob. Matt has told me earlier, that he needs some time before the big championship match. You know, to preperate, to be at the top of his game, going into the biggest match of his career. But of course, during those weeks of preparation, we’ve got to keep you, the champ, in shape. We’ve got to make sure that you can go into the championship match as a worthy competitor for your challenger. We can’t have you losing your focus, or getting out of shape, now can we, champ? Therefore, up until Matt Bloom, decides to cash in his championship opportunity, I will book you in a series of matches, to keep you at the top of your game. Beginning next week, when you face, in a non-title match…against PAUL THE GREAT WIGHT!
A very loud mixed reaction! Some fans like the decision, others don’t.
Hey, Rob, stay focused!
Bischoff carries a smile from right ear to left, as he pads RVD on the shoulder, before leaving the area.
One match left on the card, ladies and gentlemen! Brock vs. Wight and it’s next!
And welcome back to Dynamite, ladies and gentlemen, it is now time for a main event of epic proportions! Brock Lesnar will take on Paul “The Great” Wight in a Easter Extravaganza rematch! And we have just learned, ladies and gentlemen, that this match, by order of Mr. Bischoff, is now for a shot at the All-American Championship!
Oh my god, Joey! This just makes this match that more interesting! These two will go at it and tear each other apart and we’ll be allowed to witness it! It’s great, Joey! Let’s do this!
“BIG” hits the P.A. system as Paul “The Great” Wight, also known as the largest athlete in the world, comes down the aisle, looking ever so imposing. He still gets a good reaction, but some boos are heard here and there. Wight doesn’t let it come to his heart, though, and just gets into the ring, without any shenanigans.
“Here comes the pain 2.0” hits as the crowd goes absolutely BANANAS for the arrival of Brock Lesnar. Lesnar looks ripped tonight, as he’s ready to go face to face with Paul Wight for the second time in three weeks. Lesnar jumps up on the apron, as fireworks are shooting through all four ringposts. Lesnar gets into the ring and this highly interesting, highly staked match-up is about to get underway!
Easter Extravaganza rematch: Paul “The Great” Wight vs. Brock Lesnar
Summary: A match that could be liked by each and everyone watching the program. This was not your typical big men match, as both big men actually have great chemistry and delivered here tonight. It was a very close game at the early goings, with both men not wanting to lay down for one another. In an early test of strength, Wight got the upperhand, but after a few moments, Brock managed to get back into it, shifting the weight, and getting the upperhand on Paul Wight. The crowd popped and it was Brock who started dominating the match at this point. Brock started swinging away at Wight with furious lefts and rights, sending Wight staggering in the ropes. Brock Irish whipped Wight into the ropes and nailed him with an earth shattering powerslam! The crowd went crazy, as Brock went for an early pin cover, only getting the two, however. Brock continued to portray his dominance, by connecting with some well-aimed punches to Wight’s jaw. Lesnar then went for a clothesline of giant proportion, but Wight had him scouted and leveled Brock with a lariat of his own! Wight finally was able to shift the momentum in his favor, and started dismantling his big adversary. Wight connected with some huge right paws to Brock’s head, before scooping him up for the powerslam. Wight didn’t go for the cover, however, instead, he nailed Brock with a big elbow drop. Wight continued his dominance, mainly by scoring big rights and clotheslines, that kept Brock down. It was clear that this match was gonna last much longer than their first encounter, but what would happen, after the break?
After the break, Wight was still on top. He had Brock in a sleeper hold, as a matter of fact, and Brock wasn’t looking very good. The referee even lifted Brock’s arm to see if he was able to continue this match, but he didn’t even have to count the one, because Brock was able to get his act together and fight his way out of the sleeper, using a very impressive side suplex. This triggered a period of impressive moves, executed by one Brock Lesnar. Brock impressed the fans by hitting three consecutive Belly-to-belly suplexes! Brock didn’t get the three count, however, as Wight was still in this match. Brock then dished out everything he had in his body, scooping up Wight on his shoulder and nailing him with a devastating RUNNING POWERSLAM! The crowd popped like mad, as Lesnar looked exhausted after this amazing showing of strength. Lesnar finally covered Wight but Wight kicked out at two and seven/eighth! Wight was still in this one, although the fans didn’t like it very much. Brock didn’t look all too frustrated though, as he nailed Wight with a quick leg drop, before climbing to the top turnbuckle. Brock was standing on the top turnbuckle, contemplating some big aerial move. Some “smart fans” were shivering at the thought of Brock possibly going for the Shooting Star Press, shades of WWE’s Wrestlemania 19. Brock didn’t go for the Shooting Star, however, as he went for a flying elbow instead, and connected! The crowd popped, as Lesnar went for another cover, and again, Wight kicked out just in the nick of time. Lesnar did show signs of frustration at this point, picking Wight up and making an almost fatal mistake. Brock went for an instant F5, but Wight managed to slide off Brock’s shoulders, nailing a falling inverted DDT in the process. When Wight went for the cover, however, Brock was able to kick out, just in time, saving his chances in this great match-up! Both men were down and out at this point and the ref started a ten count. Both men eventually got up, standing eye to eye, much to the approval of the fans! Brock suddenly dished out a huge right hand to Wight’s jaw, before Wight did the same to Brock. Both men swung right after right after right at each other, as this epic battle of giants was nearing its conclusion. Brock eventually got the upperhand of the giant slugfest, and hit a number of consecutive rights to Paul Wight’s jaw. Lesnar ran into the ropes, looking for a massive clothesline, but Wight had him scouted and suddenly clasped his giant paw around Brock’s neck! Wight hoisted Brock in the air, looking for a chokeslam, but Brock jumped out of it, immediately lifting Wight up on his shoulders, going for the F5! But Wight slid off, immediately clasping his hand around Brock’s neck yet again! Surely this time, he would be able to nail the chokeslam! But Lesnar summoned up all his strength, and broke out of the initial chokehold! Brock lifted Paul Wight up onto his shoulder, ready to deliver the F5! The fans popped like crazy, as Brock summoned up all his strength AND NAILED WIGHT WITH THE F5! The roof was blown off the joint as an exhausted Lesnar went for the cover: ONE…TWO…THREE!!
Winner (18:49) and new Number One Contender for the All-American Championship BROCK LESNAR!!!
History has been made! Brock Lesnar dished out everything he had and more and was able to pin Paul “The Great” Wight! What a classic match, Mike!
History’s the word, Joey! What an awesome match we just saw, with two men, giving it their all to try and, well, destroy each other, Joey! Brock’s won though and now he’s the number one contender for the All-American championship! Rey Mysterio better watch out, cause a match against Brock Lesnar, heh, it won’t be a walk in the park!
And with that, ladies and gentlemen, this edition of GWE Dynamite comes to a close. History has been made, lives have changed! For Mike Bucci, I’m Joey Styles saying, good night from Manchester, New Hampshire!
We see Brock Lesnar raising his hands and celebrating this hard-fought victory, while the fans are cheering, as the screen fades to black and this episode of Dynamite is in the books.
