GWE Dynamite! 02/07/2008 Cow Palace, San Francisco, California
*Video package, highlighting last week’s events. We see highlights from the Battle Royal, such as Paul Wight eliminating both Basham Brothers, Rey Mysterio eliminating Carlito as well as himself and Hulk Hogan eliminating Paul Wight. Finally we see Hulk Hogan eliminating Rob Van Dam to become the first ever GWE Global Champion, as the video comes to a close.*
“Welcome to the jungle”, the official theme song of GWE Dynamite! hits the P.A. system!
The camera pans the arena as we see the 11,000+ fans go crazy for the second ever episode of GWE Dynamite! We then go to ringside, to Joey Styles and Mike Bucci, Dynamite’s announce team!
Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the second ever edition of GWE Dynamite! We are coming to you live from the jam packed Cow Palace in San Francisco and I couldn’t be more excited for tonight’s show! What do you think, partner?
I’m not your partner, Joey, I told you last week. But man o man, I’m all fired up for Dynamite tonight! We got the official crowning of our GWE Global Champion and what about our main event! Rey Mysterio Jr. versus Carlito Colon, oh my god!
“Eye of the tiger” hits the P.A. system and as GWE icons, Sylvester Stallone and Greg Gagne come out and make their way to the ring to a nice pop from the crowd.
They step into the ring and we see a small pillar standing in the middle of the ring. On top of that pillar lies an object that is currently covered in a black veil. Stallone and Gagne get in the ring, look at the pillar and both men grab a microphone.
“And welcome to GWE Dynamite!”
“Last week, our show started off with a bang and with a tremendous battle royal! And as you all know, the winner of that battle royal would be granted the GWE Global Championship! And that is the reason that we are here, to officially crown the new GWE Global Champion!”
“So without any further ado, let’s bring out the man who won the battle royal last week. He is the one, the only, the incredible, the immortal, HULK HOGAN!”
“Real American” hits as Hulk Hogan comes out to a MASSIVE pop from the fans! He comes out wearing a costume as he salutes the 11,000 hulkamaniacs who have sold out the Cow Palace. Hogan enters the ring and shakes hands with his good friends Stallone and Gagne. Hogan also is handed a microphone.
“Brothers, I’d like to say what a tremendous honor it is, to stand here in the ring with you guys and to stand here in front of all these crazy hulkamaniacs!”
“Last week was our debut show and we did exactly what we promised to do and that’s shocking sports entertainment, brother! And we had the best main event imaginable, a battle royal to decide our new Global Champion!”
“And I did everything I could to win. I took myself and those 14 other wrestlers to the limit and I came out on top! And it is with great pride that I will be you’re champion. The champion of every single Hulkamaniac in the universe, brother!”
Greg Gagne brings the mic to his mouth, as Sylvester Stallone gets ready to unveil the championship.
“So now without any further ado, Hulk Hogan, let me congratulate you as the first ever, the official GWE GLOBAL CHAMPION!”
Stallone removes the black veil, as the GWE Global Championship is revealed and the fans are going crazy! Stallone picks up the championship and hands it to Hogan, who immediately holds it high in the air, posing for the fans, who are going absolutely bananas!
Hogan is celebrating as fireworks go off above the ring and at the stage. But as the fireworks stop and the pops die down, “Still One of a Kind” hits the P.A. system as the fans again go wild! RVD steps onto the stage and looks at Hogan, before stepping towards the ring, taking in the cheers from the fans. He gets into the ring and grabs a microphone, waiting for the pop to die down.
Rob Van Dam:
“Hulk Hogan, dude, congratulations! You won the battle royal fair and square last week and you deserve to be the champion. But you know something, dude, you and me, we were the men who stole the show!”
Rob Van Dam:
“And that was with 13 other men! Imagine, Hulk, if you and me were alone in the ring! We would blow the roof off, dude!”
Rob Van Dam:
“So it’s very simple. I challenge you for a match next week, with the GWE Global Championship on the line! What do you say?”
*Big pop as the fans clearly want to see this match*
“You know something, brother, I have wrestled the biggest stars and the greatest wrestlers in my career. I wrestled Andre The Giant. I wrestled Sting and I wrestled The Rock. But ever since you signed for GWE, I realized there was one star I still had to wrestle. And that’s you, brother! And I’m sure that all these Hulkamaniacs, all these “GWEniacs” would go crazy for a match like that! Am I right? Will all you fans go crazy for Rob Van Dam versus Hulk Hogan?”
*The 11,000 fans jump up and down from their seats, erupting in an amazing pop, clearly responding positively to Hogan’s question*
“Then that’s exactly what’s gonna happen, brother! Rob Van Dam, I accept your challenge! It will be you and me for the GWE Championship, next week at Dynamite! AND WHAT YA GONNA DO, BROTHER, WHEN HULK HOGAN RUNS WILD ON YOU!?”
“Real American” hits as the roof is blown off by all these crazy fans and we go to a commercial break.
“Pretty in blond” hits and Jillian Hall comes out to a mixed reaction from the fans. She has a microphone in hand and stops on the stage.
“I see that you are all very pleased to see me. But what you’re about to see is even better! Because I have brought with me the two men that are without a doubt, THE future of GWE! They are the pinnacle of manliness. The summit of brute, manly strength. Simply the best two men can offer. They are Doug and Danny, THE BASHAM BROTHERS!”
“Bald and nasty” hits the P.A. system as Doug and Danny Basham come out to a small, but negative reaction from the fans. Both of them give Jillian a kiss as the trio move towards the ring. They get inside and pose for the fans but the negative reaction seems to grow.
“Vrooar, vrooooaaar!” The sound of lawnmowers is heard and that’s exactly what we see on stage! Psicosis and Juventud Guerrera come riding out and get a good reaction from the fans. They throw some Mexican flags into the crowd before sliding into the ring and getting ready for the match.
Tag Team Match: The Basham Brothers (w/Jillian Hall) vs. The Mexicools
Summary: The Bashams controlled the opening of the match, as Doug and Danny singled out Psicosis in the early going. Danny was the one who got the most offence in, keeping Psicosis down with clotheslines, a huge shoulderblock and finally a beautifully executed tiger bomb! Danny only got the two count, however. When Doug came in shortly thereafter, Psicosis finally was able to get the upperhand, with a Shining Wizard, followed by a heel kick to the jaw. Psicosis tagged in Juventud and things only got worse for Doug Basham. Juvi, the fresh man, worked on Doug with his patented, high flying style. He nailed a dropkick, followed by a spinning heel kick and finally a standing moonsault on the fallen Doug Basham. Juvi only got a two count, but continued the assault. He stormed at Danny who was on the apron and knocked him off, before jumping on the middle rope and nailing Doug with a springboard moonsault! But then, Jillian Hall decided it was enough. She went over to the announce table, grabbed a steel chair and gave it to Danny. Hall herself went to the other side of the ring and distracted the referee on the ring apron, while Danny got in the ring and smacked the steel chair off the skull of Juventud! Psicosis came storming into the ring and Danny smacked him across the skull as well! The crowd were showering Danny with heat, as he threw away the chair and pulled Doug onto Juvi for the count. Jillian jumped off the apron and the referee counted to three for the win.
Winners (6:56) Doug and Danny, The Basham Brothers!
No! What is this? This is outrageous! Doug and Danny Basham steel the victory here!
Steal the victory? The referee counted the three, moron, they got the win fair and square!
I can’t believe you, Mike, how can you say this? Danny used the chair, Jillian distracted the referee and they got the unfair advantage!
The ref should know better than to fall for Jillian’s pretty eyes, that’s what I’m saying. The Basham Brothers were smart and they deserved this victory. *Bucci jumps up from his chair*GOOD JOB GUYS!!
We see the Basham Brothers celebrating their victory along with Jillian Hall, before we go to a backstage area, where we see Steve Romero standing by.
“And standing here with me is the man who’ll be facing Rey Mysterio Jr. later on tonight, Carlito Colon. *Turns to Carlito* Carlito, tonight, you’ll be tangling with one of the top stars in GWE and…”
“Whoa, whoa, hold it right there… Romero. I’ll be tangling with one of the top stars? You must be drugged or something, because it’s the other way around! Rey Mysterio will be tangling with the top star, me, Carlito!”
“Let’s get a few things straight here, you little punk. I am Carlito Colon! People know my name from here in the United States, all the way to Japan! Rey Mysterio, he’s way past his prime. He’s a has-been, he just gets a reaction for jumping through the steel ramps! He’s not a big star. He’s a big phony!”
“He wears a stupid mask to the ring and expects people to cheer for that. And people did cheer for that. But those days are over, Mysterio. Tonight, the fans will see who’s the real star, when I completely humiliate you in the middle of the ring! The people all around the world will see that I am the better wrestler and the bigger star! I will show that I don’t have to wear the same stupid mask every week to get a reaction. I will show that I don’t have to yell a stupid area code to be recognized. I will show that Carlito Colon is the best that GWE has to offer!”
“Tonight, I’ll go out there and wipe the mat with Mysterio and when I’m done, every fan will shout CAR-LI-TO, CAR-LI-TO, CAR-LI-TO! And nobody will even care for Mysterio.”
“Rey Mysterio, you’d try to stop me from being a star last week when you sacrificed yourself to eliminate me. You went out o’ your way to eliminate me, because you couldn’t stand me in your spotlight. Well tonight I’m finishing the job. I will take your place in the spotlight, because that’s where I belong and you don’t! And for those of you morons who didn’t understand by now, I guarantee victory tonight. I will humiliate Rey Mysterio and I will be the winner tonight. And for those of you wondering…dat, dat is cool!”
The last comment got a few laughs, but they were immediately drowned out by immense heat as Carlito left the area and we went to a commercial.
When we came back, Scott Taylor was already in the ring, as he had just finished his entrance.
“You can run” then hits the P.A. system as Billy Kidman, along with valet Torrie Wilson , comes out to a nice pop from the fans. He steps towards the ring, slapping hands with a few fans at ringside, before stepping inside the ring.
And welcome back, ladies and gentlemen. Up next is an interesting contest, to say the least. Billy Kidman going one on one with Scott Taylor.
Interesting’s the word, Joey. Two very talented wrestlers going at it in what promises to be a great match!
Billy Kidman(w/Torrie Wilson) vs. Scott Taylor
Summary: Basically a filler match next. We got to see some nice wrestling though, but nothing earth shattering. There was back-and-forth action throughout the contest, but it was Kidman who looked most dominating, using his quickness and his strength to get the upperhand. After a few minutes, the finishing sequence started, as Billy Kidman landed a huge sit-down chokebomb. He went to the top rope and posed to the fans, scouting Taylor for the Shooting Star Press. But Taylor suddenly hopped back up on his feet, jumped up on the top turnbuckle and nailed Kidman with a huge German Suplex from the top rope! The crowd popped as Taylor started doing his patented taunts before the WORM! After Taylor did his well known shenanigans he went for the final chop drop, but just at the last moment, Kidman rolled out of the way! Kidman got up and nailed Taylor with a sudden BK Bomb! Kidman immediately went to the rope, measured Taylor and nailed a picture perfect Shooting Star Press, to a big pop from the crowd! He went for the cover and got the win!
Winner (5:12) Billy Kidman!
And that’s it, Billy Kidman has won this great contest!
He dished it all out and got the win, Joey, that’s how it’s done. I foresee a great future for Kidman here in GWE, I truly do!
The song “Big” plays in the background as we see Paul ‘The Great’ Wight walk towards the camera from a dark hallway.
We see shots of Wight’s first performance in GWE, the battle royal at the first ever Dynamite. We see Wight appearing on stage and being surrounded by all the participants in the battle royal, inside the ring.
We switch back to the hallway where Wight is approaching the camera, as his silhouette is growing bigger.
We now see a shot of Paul Wight performing the double Showstopper to Doug and Danny Basham.
We switch back to the hallway image, as Wight stops in front of the camera and is looking huge.
We see shots of Paul Wight eliminating several stars from the battle royal, including Psicosis, Danny Basham, Sean Waltman and Frankie Kazarian.
We go back to the hallway and we see Wight stretching and clubbing his hands, showing off his huge sized arms and hands.
We see a shot of Wight raising his gigantic hand to a big pop from the crowd.
We switch back to the hallway and Paul Wight moves one step closer to the camera, bends over and looks straight into the lens.
Paul Wight: “Watch out, Dynamite, The Great is coming!”
Paul Wight smiles and finally laughs as the screen fades to black.
I think we better keep an eye out for Paul Wight next week, Mike!
Keep an eye out? You’d have to be blind to miss that man. I mean, he’s seven feet tall and he’s about seven feet wide too!
You just have to push it again, don’t you?! Anyway, ladies and gentlemen, don’t adjust your sets. When we come back, our huge main event, Carlito Colon one on one with Rey Mysterio Junior!
And what a match it’ll be, oh my god!
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back! It is now time for our Main Event! A match to look out for, for sure, Carlito Colon will be battling it out with Rey Mysterio!
A match for the ages, Joey, I’m calling it now! Carlito’s gonna live up to his words from earlier tonight and BUTCHER REY MYSTERIO, MARK MY WORDS!
“I spit in the face of people who don’t want to be cool” is heard throughout the arena as Carlito Colon comes out on stage to a lot of heat from the fans. He spits on the ground, showing his disrespect for the fans, before stepping towards the ring to even more heat.
“Back to the 619” hits the P.A. system as the fans go crazy as Rey Mysterio shoots through the stage! He pans the arena, before walking to the ring, to his opponent for tonight, Carlito. He gets in the ring and the crowd is all fired up for this match!
Main Event: Carlito Colon vs. Rey Mysterio Jr.
Summary: The fans were red hot throughout the entire match and really gave the bout an extra dimension. Carlito immediately went to work and assaulted Rey Mysterio with quick rights and lefts. Carlito dominated in the early going as he went for Mysterio’s legs, trying to take away Mysterio’s biggest asset, his speed. Carlito nailed Mysterio with a dropkick to the knee, before locking in a one leg Boston crab. Carlito screamed “TAP” while Mysterio had all the trouble in the world trying to get out. Finally Mysterio was able to reach the ropes, however, but the damage had been done. Carlito cockily awaited for Mysterio to get up, but the poor Highflyer was hardly able to use his left leg. Carlito did the ‘come on’ motion, as Mysterio limbed towards him. Carlito smiled and ducked a clothesline attempt by Mysterio, only to take his leg out once again. Carlito from there on just viciously assaulted Mysterio’s leg with numerous kicks to the knee and countless kneedrops to the damaged knee of Mysterio. But then Carlito made a rare mistake. He picked up Mysterio and waited just a second too long to attack, waisting time on taunting the man from the 619. Carlito went for a clothesline, but Mysterio ducked and nailed Carlito with a dropkick to the back, sending him falling into the ropes. The crowd pops as Mysterio is going for the Six One Nine. But as he bounced off the ropes and ran at Carlito, Mysterio’s knee gave out and the little man collapsed in the middle of the ring! Carlito turned around and smiled as we went to a commercial.
When we came back, Carlito was in full control once again. He had Mysterio in the corner and clubbed away at Mysterio’s jaw. Carlito stepped up on the ropes and started to hit away at Mysterio with stiff, closed fists. But suddenly, Carlito took the time to taunt the fans in attendance(receiving a lot of heat in the process) and Mysterio took advantage by grabbing Carlito’s trunks and launching him, face first into the steel ring post! Carlito fell all the way to the outside as Mysterio collapsed in the corner, taking a breather. Eventually, Mysterio got up and just as the ref was to an 8 count, Mysterio ran towards the ropes and launched himself over the top rope, nailing Carlito, who just got up on his feet, with an over the top rope crossbody! The crowd popped big time as Mysterio favored his knee, which was still bothering him. Mysterio rolled Carlito into the ring and now Mysterio was in control. Mysterio kicked Carlito in the leg several times before Irish whipping him into the ropes and nailing him with a back body drop. Mysterio got to the top rope and went for a frog splash, but unfortunately, Carlito rolled out of the way! Mysterio stumbled back up as Carlito stormed at him and immediately nailed him with a swift reverse STO. Carlito went for the pin, but Mysterio kicked out at two and 7/8! Carlito got frustrated and decided it was time to finish Mysterio off. Carlito picked Mysterio up and slapped him across the face so hard, Mysterio turned around and almost fell off his feet. Carlito went for the back cracker, a move he made famous in WWE, but Mysterio ducked and hit Carlito with a dropkick to the back, sending Carlito into the ropes. The crowd popped as Mysterio pointed to the air and bounced off the ropes, running towards Carlito. Rey Mysterio went for the Six One Nine and succeeded, kicking Carlito back to the middle of the ring! The crowd went insane, as Mysterio pulled himself up from the ropes, scouting Carlito for the West Coast Pop. Carlito stumbled back to his feet and turned around, only to see Mysterio come flying towards him. But just as Mysterio went for the West Coast Pop, Carlito countered it into a huge powerbomb! The crowd’s excitement turned into disgust for Carlito as he went for the pin. But against all expectations, Mysterio kicked out just in the nick of time! Carlito got all frustrated, clubbing the mat and arguing with the referee. Mysterio meanwhile tried to get back up, but he was still dazed after that thunderous powerbomb. Carlito went to Mysterio and picked him up. Carlito grabbed Mysterio’s head and started talking trash to him. He Irish whipped Mysterio into the ropes, but what no-one expected, happened, as when Mysterio came running back, he jumped up and out of nowhere hit the West Coast Pop! Carlito was totally caught off guard as Mysterio held Carlito down for the pin!
ONE – TWO- THREE!!
Winner (17:33) Rey Mysterio Jr.!
That’s it! He’s done it! Rey Mysterio has come out on top in this one! What a match and what a winner! Rey Mysterio has beaten Carlito!
Well, Joey, I got to hand it to Mysterio, he surprised me tonight! I shared Carlito’s opinion that Mysterio was nothing but an old, washed up has-been, but he went out there and brought his A-game. And hey, he beat Carlito fair and square! Congratulations, Rey, you deserved it!
Well, I’m glad we can agree on the fact that Rey Mysterio deserved this victory! And with that, ladies and gentlemen, this second ever edition of GWE Dynamite comes to a close. For Mike Bucci, I’m Joey Styles, goodnight!
We see Rey Mysterio celebrating his victory, as Carlito storms up the entrance ramp, looking totally shocked and pissed off, as the show comes to a close and the screen fades to black.
