Jam's Review
Supershow

Wow! That's one word to describe your Supershow. I like how you started your BTB realistically. What I mean by that is AOW started with an hour timeslot, so they had to work really hard to get to where they are at right now, and that for me, just adds more realism to your company.

The War Match was just epic man! Favorite match of the night for sure. Samoa Joe and Finlay, that's how these two should be used! They are absolute beasts in the ring! Maybe a Sheamus vs. Finlay or a Sheamus vs. Samoa Joe match would've been even more epic as I see Sheamus being one hell of a brawler.

The Crusierweight Division is really interesting here in your thread. I like what you did to show which two men would vy for the title. Very interesting concept. The Low Jack team was really interesting, I was rooting for them but I knew they wouldn't get that far. Helms vs. Danielson was a great final, really good match writing here.

Your use of Christian in your thread is...unique. Not exactly how I would've used Christian but it's still very interesting seeing Christian used this way. And he feuds with Lashley? Pretty interesting as well as we see how big Lashley could've been if he stayed in the WWE.

Hassan/Rey, really impressed here too. Not really a big fan of Hassan but I believe, if you put Rey with anyone, he can put them over, and that's exactly what he did with Hassan. Burchill/Albreight are an interesting pair and I like their gimmick of being mercenaries. Haven't really seen that one used yet, so props to you.

Main event time, man, this one was really good too. But the match of the night for me was Samoa Joe vs. Finlay. I like how it was mostly RVD/Michaels in the match and Jericho coming in and retaining his title, just adds more heat to your biggest heel in the company.

Overall, really awesome show. You've got me hooked man and I'll be continuing to review for ya. You've got a great company, great roster, and put on some of the best matches here on wrestlingforum. Keep up the great work bro!

Wow, don't ever think I've gotten more than three reviews from anything, let alone five. cp, RKO, and WierdGuy, I see you guys have previews and stuff up so I'll hit you guys up soon enough, Jamjam I'll return soon as well, and Mac...I'll be in your thread anyways

Greatly, greatly appreciate the words fellas. A great deal of things for me to think about is always a good thing for a writer, I guess. But I'm not just here for idle chatter. There be business to attend to...

“It’s not cool” to get hurt before you begin…



This past Wednesday night on Oblivion’s first ever Supershow, AOW was set on beginning to air vignettes featuring Mr. Colon in a new, yet similar gimmick. Colon’s planned tenure in the WWC (World Wrestling Council) in Puerto Rico was coming to a close. On his final show that Monday, Carlito reportedly had shoulder issues that eventually led to his shoulder giving on him mid-match. Sources confirm that the injury will require surgery and also require Carlito to miss his planned endeavors in AOW for several months, without even debuting him in the federation. As of the date on this report, Carlito has not been scrapped from any plans and still intends on coming to the budding company.

What impact this has on AOW allowing their talents to accept other dates and shows remains to be seen, although once would imagine this would be leading down the road of AOW officials wanting the roster being solely contractually obligated to AOW and only AOW.

While Lashley has been confirmed to be out of action for several weeks, Christian Cage has been suspended indefinitely by Paul Heyman for his part in the assault. Heyman cited that it was not only the ‘insidious acts’ that prompted his decision, but also the mental state of Cage was of ‘extreme concern’, citing the safety of both the remaining talents and Christian himself as reasons why Cage should stay away until he ‘gets his personal issues sorted out’.


AOW RELEASES FIRST EVER PPV SCHEDULE & EXTENDED TIMESLOT!!!

It’s not all bad news for AOW, however, as confirmed today, FX has granted AOW Oblivion a half hour time extension effective as of October 31st, 2007, making all future Oblivions (from that date) 90 minutes!

As if getting an extra half-hour of the biggest and best action in wrestling weren’t enough, the success of last week’s Supershow has also given way to Heyman announcing TWO PAY-PER-VIEWS!

World Ablaze | November 11, 2007 | Boston, Massachusetts – TD Banknorth Garden
This is Exile | February 3, 2008 | East Rutherford, New Jersey – Izod Center

In between, there has also been a two-hour timeslot, potentially another Supershow, dated for December 26th. With these PPV events being outside of the Hammerstein Ballroom, one can only wonder if this is only the beginning for AOW Wrestling potentially going on the road more often and more permanently.
Hope this tides over 'til midweek when I post the actual preview and stuffs. I should be catching up on reviews and what not in the meantime.

10.3.07

The Hammerstein Ballroom – Manhattan, New York City, New York
“Repair from the Greatest Affair”

One week after the biggest show in AOW history, it’s time for reconstruction and repair! And what better way to do so than finding a new opponent for Chris Jericho’s World title! How will that be done? Well, no one’s quite sure, since Jericho has asked for time this week to explain why no one is ‘worthy enough’ to face him for the title ever again. So this week, instead of potentially finding a new contender…we may have to listen to Chris Jericho tell us why there will be none ever again.

Another great way to start recovering is by giving the war some new blood – this week is the debut of the much hyped, hottest prospect in all of lucha libre – Aero Star! The sensation that is Aero Star will finally grace his presence in AOW in perhaps an as explosive way as his video packages have showcased. Is AOW prepared for what the Star has in store?

In addition to perhaps the biggest cruiserweight prospect in the world coming in AOW, the cruiserweights that’re already here put on a hell of a show last week in the Tag Team Turning Point match. In addition to a brand new Cruiserweight Champion in Bryan Danielson being crowned, we saw what could wind up becoming the future of the AOW tag team division in teams like the Mexicools and the new and ‘different’ team of Jack Evans and Low Ki, aptly labeled “Low Jack”. And thanks to both of these two teams’ showings, they’ll be facing each other once again! The Mexicools, Low Jack, all lock up in a Supershow rematch.

Now is the true turning point for AOW – with Pay-Per-Views officially scheduled and an extended time slot coming in roughly a month, it’s time to show the world the best side of war. Tune in to AOW: Wednesday Night Oblivion, at 9/8c, only on FX!


.:Confirmed for Oblivion:.

The Mexicools v. Low Jack

Aero Star debuts

PLUS…

Chris Jericho addresses his championship situation

AND…

All AOW champions will be in attendance
Not my best preview, but it is what it is. Plus I'm wrapped up in several things at home. If there's anybody who's got a show up and I haven't given feedback too yet, please let me know. Hope to have this up Monday/Tuesday-ish.

Chris Jericho holds the AOW World title high in the air

***

We exit the opening vignette and are brought to the once again filled to the brim Hammerstein, who’re lighting up the night, already pumped up. Unfortunately, the first sound the Hammerstein hears on the night, beyond the video package song, is that of “Break Down the Walls”, the tune for the STILL AOW World Champion Chris Jericho. The resounding whiplash in reaction doesn’t seem to faze the suit and tie clad champion, whom is once again accompanied by Paul “The Great” Wright. Even worse, Jericho has the most sinister businessman’s grin on his face. Perhaps most unfortunate for everyone is that Jericho has a microphone in his hand…


Chris Jericho:
Good evening, simpletons.

~The crowd gives their heat in response to being belittled

Chris Jericho:
Despite overwhelming odds stacked against me and my World title from this corrupt administration, I still stand here your AOW Champion.
~The Hammerstein does not approve

Chris Jericho:
So I want each of you finally acknowledge that I am undisputedly the worthiest man to ever hold gold in any company under any management in any time – this is only the beginning of a worthy reign from a worthy man.
~Yet even more heat

Chris Jericho:
Despite everything Paul Heyman and Mick Foley have thrown my way, I have remained champion! I have never been pinned or made to submit. Yet now, not only have I made Shawn Michaels submit to me, but I have pinned Rob Van Dam. Ergo and by my estimations, that means that I have absolutely NO challengers left for my AOW title.
~Yet even MORE heat

Chris Jericho:
So you people have no excuse to keep antagonizing me. The boys in the back have nothing more to say to me. And I have no reason anymore to sit out here and try to convince all of you to listen to my worthy words. RVD had his chance and shall get no more. Shawn Michaels never deserved one anyway, but my friend Paul here took care of him. So I will just take my AOW World title and wash my hands of this senselessness.

~Sustained heat

Chris Jericho:
So I requested this time to speak on my championship situation. The situation is simple – I am Chris Jericho and I am your AOW Champion. And I have the power. And now that there are no more challengers to topple, I will be on my way.


Jericho sustains the heat, as he prepares to leave the ring with Wright, no music or anything. He’s suddenly stopped at the base of the ramp when suddenly “WALK” by Pantera hits the speakers, as Rob Van Dam makes his way through the blood-red curtain, tense, yet confident look on his face and a mike in hand he stops on the stage to a tremendous pop, as always.

RVD
:
You can stop right there, Jericho. You’re so busy runnin’ your mouth about how much better you are than everybody, you might miss the information I have. And I’m pretty sure you’ll wanna hear it, dude.

~Jericho stops in his tracks and stares down Van Dam. Wright takes a few steps from behind Jericho, but Jericho tells the man beast to stop.

RVD
:
See, our General Manager told me something that even I didn’t realize. And that’s that I earned my #1 Contender’s shot for a one-on-one match with Chris Jericho. A match I still haven’t gotten.

~Jericho’s face goes from confident and listening to one of anger, as he knows where this might be going

RVD
:
So Jericho, dude, I still have a match against you for that AOW title. That the oh-so kind Mick Foley told me I’ll be able to face you, one on one, at the very first AOW Pay-Per-View, World Ablaze.

~The crowd lets out a roar of a pop here, solidifying the PPV, and knowing that Jericho can’t get out of this one

RVD
:
Oh, and as for you and your ‘power’…yeah, no, dude. Mick also granted me the power to choose your opponents from now until you face me for that title.

~HUGE pop for that, as the look on Jericho’s face is absolutely dumbfounded

RVD
:
He just thought that with your undeserving ego raging around here, he’d show you what power really is. And I’m happy to help him.

~Van Dam gives an innocent little shrug that gets under Jericho’s skin even more

RVD
:
I’m not tellin’ who you’ll be facing tonight, though. That ruins half the fun of actually putting you in a match. So let’s see if you can plan one step ahead of something you can’t even see in front of you.

~Yet another pop on the pause, as Jericho’s face is beet red

RVD
:
So, at World Ablaze, Chris Jericho, all this nonsense you’re talkin’ is gonna end. All this ‘worthy man’ stuff doesn’t happen anymore. And only one ‘worthy man’ is gonna walk out of here with the AOW W-H-C – R…V…D!!

~The crowd joins in on the thumbs, as Van Dam makes his final words known to the now so pissed, he’s absolutely speechless Jericho


**COMMERCIAL BREAK**


We return from to AOW backstage in an office setting, where Torrie Wilson enters the room to a positive reaction, but she looks on the verge of tears. In the chair of the desk in front of her is General Manager Mick Foley who somberly greets Miss Wilson…


Mick Foley:
Um…hey, Torrie. You wanted to see me?

Torrie Wilson:
Mick, I need you to reverse Christian’s suspension. Look, I know what he did was sick, and-and unforgivable…but please, Mick, you have to know that he’s…he’s in a very dark place right now…and he needs all the help he can get.

Mick Foley:
I’m sorry, Torrie. But suspending Christian wasn’t my decision, it was Paul Heyman’s. I can’t override his decisions. But…Torrie, if you don’t mind me asking…why is it that you seem to care about Christian Cage so much?

Torrie Wilson:
No, it’s okay, Mick…a few years ago, me and Christian were, of course, co-workers in World Wrestling Entertainment. The hectic schedule we had to deal with was…it was a bit much for me. I don’t deal with intensity very well. I wanted help in the worst way.

Mick Foley:
So…you turned to Christian?

Torrie Wilson:
Well, I didn’t turn to anyone at first. I was completely by myself. And every guy I’ve ever turned to for anything has always wanted…“something” in return. So that just...prolonged even more suffering for me. And then I turned to you, Mick.

Mick Foley:
I was just gonna say, I do remember all the constant phone calls we had.

Torrie Wilson:
Exactly though, Mick. I appreciate what you tried to do for me, Mick, but…you weren’t there. I couldn’t deal with all of it when you weren’t completely there. And all at the same time, the scheduling got worse, my mom got sick, my dad was starting to date someone I wasn’t approving of, and my anorexia was even starting to come back again…I felt so…alone.

~Wilson has to stop and try to compose herself, Foley handing her a tissue

Torrie Wilson
:
And then yes, I did turn to Christian. For the first time, I truly trusted a guy with everything. And he was there for me through everything, even when people didn’t even know. We started traveling together and he really helped me take a lot of the weight off my shoulders. So I was able to be there for my mother and make her better and get my father back. I got over my eating disorders and I got my life back …and all of that was thanks to Christian. And he never asked for anything in return. Mick, Christian’s been like a brother to me for so long, and I know exactly what he feels like now. I know he needs all the help he can get and he needs to be here.

Mick Foley:
Torrie…as much as it weighs heavy on my heart to bring him back, it’s out of my hands and –

~Foley is cut off at this point, as Chris Jericho has just busted in the door, changing the mood of the room completely

Chris Jericho:
What in the HELL is wrong with you?? I have defeated RVD already in front of the entire world and you want to just give him a title match all willy-nilly?!? On the very first Pay-Per-View, no less??

~Jericho’s hands go flailing on that last part. Foley looks at Torrie before she begins walking towards the door

Torrie Wilson:
Um…I guess we’ll talk later…

~Wilson takes a look at Chris Jericho, who makes a face at her before she leaves the frame, leaving the GM alone in a space with the Worthy Champion…

Mick Foley:
Chris, what in the HELL is wrong with YOU, huh? I just had someone in my office who was very much in need of my help, and you’re just gonna bust in here and start givin’ me hell?

Chris Jericho:
You’re damn right I –

~Jericho realizes that he’s acting very…uh…’unworthy’ and stops himself, gathers his composure, fixes his tie, then stands up straight, his hands clasped together around his waist. He then takes a second to smooth his hair before continuing again, this time in a much more collected state

Chris Jericho:
If you had any sense of common knowledge, Foley, you would know that as the AOW World Champion, I am at the top of this mountain. And if those who oppose me wish to topple me, once they try and fail, they go rolling back down all the way to the bottom. Then they have to climb it again to get what they want. You don’t just give a man the summit. Especially not one who recently squandered his chances.

Mick Foley:
And if you had any sense of common knowledge, Chris, you would know that as the General Manager, I have the right to construct that very mountain in whatever shape I want for those men to climb. Rob Van Dam did have a shot. But he’s very much earned the right to use his and exclusively his shot. And if you don’t agree, then I’m sure the bruise he left on your best friend Paul’s giant ass will agree with me.

~The crowd gets a good rib out of this one

Mick Foley:
And besides, Chris, if you had any sense of common knowledge of being champion, you’d know that that title isn’t just something to parade around here holding and proclaiming how ‘worthy’ you are to hold it. And before you go off preaching about how much power you have as champion, get it straight that you have NONE. You are a target. And besides…I thought with this egotistical power trip or whatever you’re on, it’d knock you down a notch or two if I finally gave someone else some power.

~Jericho’s face goes from calm to as if he just sniffed curdled milk and nobody in the apartment bothered to throw it out

Chris Jericho:
Give someone else some power…? Hmph. We’ll see who has the power…‘Matchmaker Mick’. Just you wait.

~Jericho veers closer and closer to Foley’s face with each word of that, before practically snarling at him in the final line. Jericho takes he and his nice suit and walks away, his face twisting into some sort of smirk once his back is turned to Foley…



~Back at ringside


“COUNTRY BOY CAN SURVIVE (INSTRUMENTAL)” is playing as we fade back, with Jamie Noble already being in the ring, doing warm-ups. When he’s announced, Noble gets a decent mixed reaction, partially due to his short performance in the Tag Team Turmoil contest last week.


Joey Styles:
Well, welcome to AOW Wednesday Night Oblivion, ladies and gentlemen, where we’re moments away from our opening contest here with Jamie Noble, who had a somewhat disappointing showing last week at our first ever Supershow, but what about that absolutely huge news we just received to kick off the show? RVD, the #1 Contender, with complete control of Chris Jericho’s fate for the six weeks between now and our first PPV, World Ablaze, on November 11th!

JBL:
The only thing that should be ‘ablaze’ right now is Mick Foley’s contract. How in the hell do you go off making a decision like that for a man who clearly lost last week and screwing your own worthy champion? I’m just waitin’ for somebody, anybody to take that man out of that chair and show him how t’really do bus’ness!

Joey Styles:
Well regardless of what you think about all this, John, there will be a match in six weeks in Boston, Massachusetts in the TD Banknorth Garden between RVD and Chris Jericho for the gold!

JBL:
Don’t you EVER tell me that it don’t matter what I think, jackass!


…we then hear a very unfamiliar hum, and after a few mysterious seconds, the yin-yang big screen comes to life, showing us clips from the video packages we’ve been seeing for the past three weeks of a man in a locker room lacing up in blue, white, and gold tights before opening a locker and putting on his mask. Lights shine out of the empty mask, which transition into his entire body glowing in the sunlight through the one window in the locker room. The humming continues to grow louder until it seemingly progresses into what sounds like helicopter blades fwapping in high-speed rotation. The crowd is buzzing at what this could be, especially with the big-screen now going dramatically black. It keeps going until we hear what sounds like the helicopter fwapping transitioned into an upbeat, Hispanic, hard rock tune…

**SIN LIMITES**

The tune continues until we see the very first in-person look at Aero Star, the top luchadore prospect in the world. He’s wearing what looks to be shoulder pads that are connected to a cloak of sorts that covers up his visible body from the neck down, very similar to Ultimo Dragon, but Star’s stops at his knees. The reason for this is seen very quickly, as Aero Star rushes on down to the ring in almost full sprint, the cloak that concealed him now whipping behind him like a superhero’s cape. He leaps cleanly from the floor to the apron, grabbing onto a turnbuckle post, swinging to the other side, with his loose arm giving the crowd his seemingly signature salute. He finally steps between the ropes to a welcome reception, removing his cape and getting ready to begin. The lucha mask conceals Star's whole expression, but his visible mouth is in an excited smirk. The look on Jamie Noble’s face, meanwhile…is some kind of confused priceless.

OPENING MATCH
~Cruiserweight Duel~
Aero Star
v.
Jamie Noble


This contest takes a second or two to start, as AOW’s resident redneck, Jamie Noble, stares at his masked luchadore opponent in great confusion. Aero Star seemingly is aware of this confusion, grinning and giving Noble another salute before running right past him and rebounding off the ropes. Noble turns to see his incredibly agile opponent flying at him with some headscissors…that spin and turns into an arm drag that sends Noble out of the ring, still completely in confusion. The confusion is still there when Aero Star gives Noble another salute from inside the ring before rushing across the ring, leaping clean through the middle rope, hands by his side, head first – the Topé Torpedo!!!

Both men are downed from the explosive impact outside now, but Aero gets to his feet relatively quickly, possibly fueled by the crowd going absolutely nuts because they’d never seen something like that before. The referee is going on with a count-out, but Star brings Noble back to the ring with him, throwing him in before coming back in himself. It’s Noble’s turn to surprise Star now, as he delivers a low dropkick to Star’s knees, forcing his masked face to hit the canvas hard.

Noble’s pitbull like mannerisms become apparent here, as he jumps the downed luchador with a camel clutch that bends the flexible Star’s spine in a way it should not. Noble seems a tad rabid, finally letting go with one hand, keeping the clutch in, while delivering crossface punches to Star’s face. Though we can’t see most of Star’s face, we do hear him scream in pain as Noble keeps the hold in. He finally lets go by forcing Star’s face into the canvas. He tries for a cover – 1…2…NO!!

Noble whips Star into the ropes, his confusion completely gone now, Noble lowering his head for the rebound. Star rolls across the back of Noble on the rebound, continuing to rebound on the opposite rope. Noble can’t think as fast as Star is moving, with Star rushing back towards Noble…and leaps onto his shoulders, before standing on them. The crowd is on fire for this, but he takes it a step further, leaping over and behind Noble now, rolling him into a sunset flip. 1…2…NO! Noble rolls his way out!

Noble follows up on getting to his feet by rushing at the still sitting Star and driving his knee into his skull. This knocks Star right back down to the canvas, prompting a cover from Noble. 1…2…NO! Aero Star forces a shoulder up, which Noble quickly grabs and locks into an armbar. Star is surprised by this, but Noble keeps the armbar locked in for several fierce seconds before Aero forces both men to get to their feet, Noble still gripping the costumed arm of Star. As Star fights to get his arm back, Noble punts him in the gut and attempts what looks to be a Tiger Driver, but upon flipping Star into the powerbomb position, Aero Star performs a beautiful, quick hurricanrana.

Noble gets to his feet, only to see Aero Star slingshotting off the second rope with what looks to be a springboard crossbody¸ but upon making contact with Noble, turns into a Tornado DDT! Noble is dead on the canvas, being absolutely spiked, which leads Star to go to the top rope, his back towards Noble. Star then makes one final salute to the crowd before leaping with an IMPLODING 450 SPLASH (AY DIOS MIO!!!), getting the pinfall with an explosive, implosive maneuver.

Winner: Aero Star at 4:11

Aero Star rolls off Noble to a very nice ovation, many in the crowd simply amazed at some of the things they’d seen. Aero simply salutes the audience on his way back up the ramp, selling the rib-crunching impact of his finisher, but back inside the ring, Jamie Noble does not look like a happy camper to say the least.


Joey Styles:
WOW!!! What an absolute explosive debut from the man they call ‘Aero Star’! And what do you call that finishing maneuver, Bradshaw?

JBL:
Joey, I’ve been to three rodeos and two goat ropin’s, but I have never seen anything like what I just saw!

Joey Styles:
And that’s only the first bit of incredible things we can expect from AOW’s newest roster member, the hottest lucha libre prospect in the world, the human quicksilver, Aero Star!



~Backstage, locker room area…


As we head to the locker room, we come to the image of Rey Mysterio with rolled up pants and a kneebrace, fixing it so it fits his injured left knee the right way. Mysterio looks up to see a very welcome face, as he winds up smiling. When the camera pans a bit and the figure walks in, Bryan Danielson enters the frame, newly won Cruiserweight Championship draped proudly over his shoulder.


Danielson
:
How’s that knee, Rey?

Mysterio:
Forget my knee, how’s that title, man? Feels good, doesn’t it?

Danielson:
Oh yeah. I’m not denyin’ that. Especially since I got it from kickin’ Gregory Helms’ head in.

Mysterio:
Yeah, I guess that’s a good side effect, huh?

Danielson:
Speaking of side effects, Rey, that thing isn’t looking so good.

~Danielson points to Rey’s braced knee

Mysterio:
Will you forget about me, man? I’m gonna be fine. You need to look out for yourself now. There’s gonna be a lot of guys gunnin’ for that gold. Gregory Helms was just the beginning, man. But I got faith in you, Bryan. A lot’a faith. But if anybody can be trusted with being the best Cruiserweight, I can’t think of anyone else but you.

~Crowd buzzes a bit for Mysterio’s big put-over

Danielson:
Thank you, Rey. That means a lot coming from you.

~The two share what starts as a handshake before becoming a quick embrace. We don’t see it for very long, however, for almost as soon as it happens, the screen starts to break up and get very unclear, static gradually starting to take over the screen. When it finally engulfs the screen, it suddenly gets cleared again, showing a web camera view that we’re all familiar with by now, as Gregory Helms bursts onto the screen, his face taking up the entire camera space

Gregory Helms:
What the hell is this?!? A hunky-dory happy moment between an undeservin’ champion and a cripple? And both of them are allowed here in AOW while Gregory Helms, the rightful and only true Cruiserweight Champion, is denied his title by terrible officiatin’? I don’t even have to tell you two suckas why you’ve just been hacked by Helms.

~Helms shakes his head in disappointment

Gregory Helms:
It makes me sick t’my stomach seein’ you with that title, Danielson. How a nobody like you could win that can only be explained one way – bullcrap. You made it through that Tag Team Turning Point match riding on Gregory Helms. I got the pins to get you to the end. I gave everything I had to get there. And I was completely robbed –

~Helms alters the camera view now, showing it’s not a web camera, but a home video recorder of sorts, the same he had on Oblivion several weeks ago. We see this as he turns the camera towards an actual computer, the camera seen in the reflection. On the computer screen is a picture of Helms being pinned by Danielson on the Supershow, with his foot in a very peculiar place…

Gregory Helms:
You see that? My foot was underneath the bottom rope, during the whole damn three count, meanin’ the referee was clearly biased and a poor official f’not stoppin’. First, he conjured up this magical image that I was grabbin’ the ropes when I clearly wasn’t. Then, he does this and completely ignores what was actually there.

~Helms has really convinced himself that he didn’t grab the ropes last week and is the victim here. He turns the camera away from the computer, back towards him

Gregory Helms:
See, an’ your view of things is twisted and terrible too, Rey. Jus’ like your knee. Gregory Helms is not ‘just the beginning’. I am the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega of the Cruiserweight division! There is no ‘was’! I will ALWAYS be the best! I will ALWAYS be the true, rightful champion! And you best believe that you betta not get too comfy with that title, Danielson. I promise you – it will belong to the true ‘Best in the World’ soon enough.

*END TRANSMISSION*


**COMMERCIAL BREAK**



As we return from the break, we’re greeted with the sound of “MEXICANO MUY LOCO” erupting from the stage, as The Mexicools make their way to the ring after a very impressive showing last week in their tag team debut in the Turning Point contest. They’re all set for action this week, but they’re all smiles once again, having a bit of fun on the turnbuckles before getting set for a tag battle.

“JACK E.” sounds over the system as Jack Evans exits to a generous pop, he too, having a very impressive showing last week alongside his partner. Evans’ feet are moving to the rapping rhythm of his own theme music, doing a little jig for his amigos in the ring. Evans doesn’t move from the stage, area, however, awaiting his tag partner.

“THE PROUD WARRIOR”
plays now, as Low Ki bursts through the red curtain to another solid ovation, with Evan’s dance moving changing to the beat of Low Ki’s instrumental. And much like last week, Low Ki has a serious look on his face while Evans is dancing. And again like last week, Ki has to tap Evans on the shoulder and wave a finger at him to tell him to stop before both men descend to the ring. Perhaps these two are more permanent…?

MATCH 2
The Mexicools
v.
“Low Jack”


Super Crazy once again starts for his team, while Low Ki begins things this go ‘round for “Low Jack”. The two men circle one another before locking up nice and tight before Ki breaks out of it with the headlock, wrenching the head of Crazy. As Crazy whips Ki across the ring, the rebound sees Super Crazy leap frogging over the still running Ki, who rebounds again, but surprises Crazy with his whipping speed, catching the Crazy luchadore from behind with a surprise bulldog. Early cover – 1…2…NO!

The early quickness of both men showing here, but Ki is quick to rebound off the ropes again and has a kick aimed for the head of the sitting Crazy, but he luckily dodges the beheading and reaches through Ki’s legs, trying to roll him up – 1…2…NO!! Ki kicks his legs up and over, rolling onto his feet, rushing at the now standing Crazy. Crazy lifts a high elbow, however, catching Ki right under the chin, stunning him. Crazy takes this opportunity to rush at the ropes springboard off…and nail the springboard elbow!! Crazy with another cover – 1…2….3-NO!! Not over yet, as Crazy pulls himself up to tag in his amigo, Psicosis.

Psicosis, immediately upon tagging, tries to follow up the springboard elbow with a springboard leg drop onto the downed warrior, but Ki is able to roll away just in time for Psicosis to fall on his tush. Ki sees the still sitting-in-shock Psicosis, rebounding off the ropes in front of him…and nailing him in the jaw with the rolling wheel kick! Psicosis falls back hard – 1…2…NO!! Ki takes his warrior pride on over to his corner, where he tags in Jack Evans for the first time to a great reaction. After the tag, Ki holds Psicosis in what looks like a dragon suplex hold, only for Evans to leap clean over the top rope, nail Psicosis in the jaw with a dropkick, dominoing into an actual dragon suplex!! Nice tag team maneuver shown, but before Evans can go for the cover, Super Crazy jumps in to save his partner.

Crazy leaps in to knock Evans on the spine before snapping him over and delivering a dropkick to the exposed vertebrae. He then turns to see the apron-bound Low Ki and hits him with a hard right, only for Low Ki to hit him right back with an even harder right, sending Crazy back a few steps and having the ref force him back to the apron. With Evans having some wind knocked out of him, he still attempts to cover Psicosis – 1…2…3…NO!!! Psicosis doesn’t go down so easy, forcing Evans to bring the lucha vet to his feet. As he does so, Psicosis gets a small spark of life and his a sitout jawbreaker that sends Evans reeling a few steps and allows Psicosis to hit a running reverse elbow to his jaw. Psicosis then grabs him from behind and tags back in Crazy. Psicosis lifts Evans into a wheelbarrow position, with Crazy grabbing his face and driving it into the canvas, nailing the tandem sitout facebuster. The roles of both men are reversed for that time, but Crazy’s cover isn’t – 1…2…3…NO!!! Evans won’t stay down!

Crazy rubs the long hair of his friend but enemy in Evans before bringing him to his feet and attempting to hit him with a hard kick, but Evans groggily blocks it, delivering a kick of his own. He drunkenly tries to rebound off the ropes, only to get caught in a hurricanrana, sending his head spinning even more. Crazy stays in control by running at the downed Evans, leaping, and crunching him beneath a running senton. Crazy rolls Evans back towards more center ring – 1…2…3-NO! The bout continues as Crazy goes over to tag in Psicosis, as both men approach the downed Evans, Crazy dropping an elbow while Psicosis hits a leaping leg drop.

The Mexicools stay in control over their friend, Psicosis delivering several hard rights before hitting a snap suplex. This doesn’t get the winning fall either, but Psicosis tries for another suplex, only for Evans to counter and collapse on top of him, falling from his vertical position into a crossbody – 1…2…NO! Both men are sprawled from that move, with Evans having to crawl over the body of Psicosis to reach for his corner…YES! The hot tag is made to Ki, who immediately cartwheels across the ring into a high kick to the face of Super Crazy, knocking him off the apron.

As he regains his footing, Psicosis ambushes him with a victory roll attempt, but Ki holds onto the corner, sending Psicosis back onto his head and sitting. Ki then rushes at him, feints a shining wizard that turns into a reverse roundhouse kick to the skull. Psicosis falls victim to the Black Magic, but Ki is looking for much higher ground. He looks to get to the top rope, but suddenly Evans shows back up, hurt, but wanting the tag in. The Warrior wants to finish it, but puts faith in his new friend, quickly tagging him and rushing towards the opposite ropes, keeping Crazy down with a no-hand plancha! Psicosis is still out cold as Evans ascends to the top rope now…630 SENTON!!! 630 SENTON!!! WOW!!! The “Evans Descent” connects for the first time in AOW, as Evans covers – 1…2…3…!!!

Winners: Low Jack at (8:32)

As everyone begins recovering, Ki helps Crazy get to his feet and rolls into the ring with him, while Evans brings Psicosis in. The Mexicools, disappointed, aren’t looking too hot, but both of them shake hands with Ki and both handshake and hug Evans, showing their respect and friendship towards both men. Ki and Evans look at each other, with Ki’s intense face getting a small smile as the hurting, but still happy, look on Evans face becomes a full blown smile.


Joey Styles:
What an explosive display of what could an expansion of the AOW tag team division, with team “Low Jack” once again getting the victory over The Mexicools! Wow, the AOW cruiserweights keep on impressing tonight with great high-flying action!

JBL:
As great as that match was, and as fun as it was watchin’ it, all I hear are the ringin’ of the words Gregory Helms said earlier. Yeah, these guys are great an’ fun, an’ “Low Jack” or whatever might be gettin’ buddy-buddy, but not one of’em are better than Gregory Helms!

Joey Styles:
Will you please stop? Gosh, you’re so hung up on why Gregory Helms is the ‘best cruiserweight in the world’. Did it ever occur to you that the best cruiserweight is…y’know…the one holding the gold, like maybe the guy who won it last week, Bryan Danielson?

JBL:
And did you not see Gregory Helms present overwhelming evidence that the referee should NOT have counted the three last week? That Bryan Danielson was ridin’ on the coattails of Helms? You’re biased as hell, you know that, Joey? You’re biased an’ a terrible journalist, a terrible commentator!

Joey Styles:
Oh dear God…

JBL:
God is righ’, Joey. You need to take notes from me. A Commentary…God.

Joey Styles:
Well if you weren’t too busy taking notes on yourself, John, you might’ve been able to figure out who Chris Jericho’s opponent is later tonight, hand-picked by Rob Van Dam! That’s on the other side of the break!


~Backstage now, where we see AOW World Tag Team Champions, the World’s Greatest Tag Team with their gold watching a screen in the back at Low Jack just now exiting the ring, obviously having looked over what just transpired. They’re approached by a very sneaky Mike Mizanin

The Miz:
So fellas, what do you think about who might be your new competition for those straps of gold you got there?

~Benjamin and Haas turn to answer the question, only for both of their eyes to lead across from them. When the camera shoots back, it is revealed that the people standing there are Paul Burchill and Brent Albright.

Burchill:
Yes, gents. What do you think about your new competition for those straps of gold…?

Shelton Benjamin:
Y’know, we may be the World’s Greatest Tag Team, but we respect our opponents and they respect us. And quite frankly, I haven’t seen either of you do anything remotely respectful since you got here. You can’t show a little bit of honor?

Burchill:
Respect? Honor? In case you haven’t noticed, gents, but I and Brent here have done nothing but honor our agreements to those who respect us enough to pay us well.

Charlie Haas:
I guess you guys respected Rey Mysterio too, huh? Maybe you respected CM Punk? Or better yet, I’m sure you honored a veteran Lance Storm real well.

Burchill:
As I said…those who respect us enough to pay us well. We are gentlemen first and savages second, boys. We don’t do anything without getting something in return. And soon enough, that ‘something’ will be those tag team titles. So hold onto your Boy Scout dreams there, mates. The Mercenaries…me and Brent here…we’re coming for you. And you’d better respect that.

~Burchill and Albright are now veering very close to one another’s faces, with Miz squished between, his eyes darting nervously from one team to the other before ‘The Mercenaries’ quickly exit the frame, leaving the WGTT to indeed seriously think about their new competition.

**Video Package**

We’re brought to a scene with a ring filled with shadows

Narrator:
For as long as wrestling has been an art form, many men have tried to tame it and perfect it…


The ring then reveals two figures, one of a polished powerhouse, the other, a small but technical wizard

Narrator:
And one place has produced more of these ‘perfectionists’ than anywhere else…


Flashes go by of Chris Jericho, Lance Storm, Chris Benoit, and Bret Hart

Narrator:
This cold, unmerciful, yet as glorifying as it is unforgiving place can only be described as…


The two shadowed figures perform what we know as the Hart Attack, before both lock on Sharpshooters

Narrator:
The Dungeon.


The shadows around the ring clear to reveal that they are indeed training in the legendary Hart Dungeon

Narrator:
The Dungeon has given birth to the final perfectionists…the final ‘executers of excellence’…her final sons…


The two still shadowed figures get a rapid close up, faces still concealed in shadow

COMING TO AOW



…suddenly, the film cuts on the reel, revealing a white background for a moment before flashes go by of two men giving intense faces, roaring towards the camera, one a lean powerhouse, the other a slicked back blonde, before we hear a very young sounding, cocky voice…

Voice:
And for those of you who think a ‘dungeon’ in Canada is the only place to go to be a ‘perfectionist’ or an ‘executor’, look no further.


Another flash goes by of the larger man, nailing a gutwrench powerbomb, while the smaller blonde hits a leaping spike reverse STO

Voice:
We are All-Americans, the very best wrestlers this great country has to offer.


Another flash of both men looking intense, this time beside each other but the white backdrop soon begins developing into an American flag, waving in the breeze. The cocky voice then names itself, while another, unfamiliar voice follows

Nameth:
I’m Nick Nameth.


Another flash of Nameth nailing his spike reverse STO

Hagar:
And I’m Jack Hagar.


Flash of the now named taller, leaner, but more powerful man go by of him nailing a German suplex, roaring at the camera following

Nameth:
I am “The Natural”.


Hagar:
I am intensity.


Nameth:
We are perfection.


Nameth nails a flawless German of his own

Hagar:
We are execution.


Both men hit Germans in unison, in the ring at the same time

Nameth:
And we were made the right way –


A 360 shot of both men in the same frame, back to back

Both:

COMING TO AOW
**COMMERCIAL BREAK**

Upon our return to the Hammerstein, we again get a glimpse of Torrie Wilson, backstage, this time on her cell phone. Whoever she’s calling doesn’t appear to be answering…


Torrie Wilson:
Come on, Christian…please pick up…damnit!

~The normally angelic Wilson lets out an obscenity as obviously, Cage doesn’t answer. Wilson throws her phone onto a table only to be greeted by, yet again, Chris Jericho. This time, however, Jericho is accompanied by his gargantuan friend, Paul “The Great” Wright.

Chris Jericho:
Not pickin’ up, is he Torrie?

~Torrie turns around, startled once by seeing someone, then jumps again when her eyes travel up to see Wright, who looms over Jericho’s shoulder


Torrie Wilson:
Um…hi…Jericho…

Chris Jericho:
Why’re you calling him, Torrie? He’s a big boy. He can take care of himself.

Torrie Wilson:
Not right now he can’t…wait, why am I even talking to you? It’s your fault he’s like this in the first place.

Chris Jericho: (Puzzled)
As much as I enjoy taking my share of credit…I haven’t the slightest clue what you’re talking about.

Torrie Wilson:
You left him behind in the main event tag match two weeks ago. You were the first person he’d trusted since he’d been here. He had his doubts, but he wanted to believe you, Chris. You told him he’d never be alone again. And what did you do? You left him behind like he was some nobody. And that destroyed him. Some worthy champion you are, you bastard.

~Wilson is on the verge of tears at this point, the last few lines delivered with a great deal of hurt emotion

Chris Jericho:
No, no, no. The man you should be blaming is Rob Van Dam. Who do you think is the one who told Christian no one respects him? Who do you think is the one who told Christian no one wanted to listen to him? The one who told him he was alone? Because that sure wasn’t me.

Torrie Wilson
:
Why are you here, Chris?

~Torrie seemingly ignores Jericho’s last statement, crossing her arms in tension

Chris Jericho:
Because you need my help. And I need yours. But above all, Christian needs all the help he can get.

~Jericho could be playing Wilson here…but she’s taking the bait…

Chris Jericho:
You’re in good relations with that…controversial General Manager of ours, aren’t you? See, I’m not in so well with him. But right now, you want Christian Cage back in this locker room. So I propose a bit of back scratching here, Ms. Wilson. You persuade old man Foley to get RVD off my back…and I’ll find Cage and bring him back myself. Just for you.

~Wilson, still choking back tears a bit, still cross armed, seems to be easing up and thinking about it…

Torrie Wilson:
For Christian.

Chris Jericho:
Right, right, for Christian. Absolutely.

Torrie Wilson:
…fine. I’ll do what I can. As long as you keep up your end.

Chris Jericho:
Good girl.


Jericho motions towards Wright to follow him, as the big man leaves the room, leaving Torrie to ponder to herself if she’s just made a deal with the devil. The screen soon fades to reveal The Miz with a microphone yet again, but this time he’s with AOW’s first ever Dynasty Champion, Muhammad Hassan.

The Miz:
Y’know, I’m gettin’ pretty sick and tired of doing Torrie’s interviews for her, but I’m The Miz, and I’m a trooper. And right now, I’m in the presence of great riches. Ladies and gentlemen, my guest at this time, your AOW Dynasty Champion, Muhammad Hassan!

~Crowd delivers a great deal of heat to the inherent fortune champion, gold in hand

Hassan:
Evening, Miz.

The Miz:
So Hassan, you executed an outstanding, incredible, absolute genius strategy that accumulated in you becoming the first man to hold that title. What can you tell us about your brilliant strategy?

~And much like earlier tonight, before the interviewee can answer, someone else interrupts them. This time, it’s none other than CM Punk. But before Punk can answer, the “trooper” stops him

The Miz:
Alright, no! Okay? I’ve already had a very respectable interview interrupted today, and now I have a guest who deserves to speak, I will not have you interrupting him or me AGAIN! You will WAIT until I’m DONE…PUNK.

~Miz gets in the face of a very no-nonsense looking CM Punk here…before Punk pushes him out of his face, out of camera view. The crowd gets a laugh, and Punk starts getting chants. Punk gets into the face of Hassan

CM Punk
:
Congratulations, Hassan. You really did put together one hellova plan to get that title. It was a great deal better than mine, I guess, so kudos on that, fine sir.

~Punk, exaggerating and feigning happiness on each word, extends his hand to Hassan

Hassan:
I’m glad you see it my way, Punk.

~Hassan, completely ignoring Punk’s obvious sarcasm, extends his hand to meet Punk’s, who immediately darts his hand back and goes from exaggeratingly happy to vocally aggressive

CM Punk
:
No, see I don’t see things your way because I don’t do things your way. You wanna sit here and have your hired guns do all your work for you, picking apart a guy while you watched from your mansions, then jump on him. See, in my neck’o th’ woods, we look a man in the eye, face to face, then we kick his ass and win some gold.

~This seems to shut up Hassan and draws a great reaction from the Hammerstein

CM Punk
:
But no – you wanna sit here, disgrace this young, budding company with what is essentially paid bullying. And on top of that, guys like that joker kissin’ your ass when you’ve done nothing? That doesn’t really sit too well with me.

Hassan:
I couldn’t care less if it sits well with you, Punk. I’ve got the gold, I’ve got the money, and you…you’ve got nothin’, Punk. You can sit here, angry as can be, jealous out of your skin, but the fact of the matter is it will do absolutely nothing because you have nothing.

~Crowd ‘ooohs’ at that, with Punk taking that in for a second, but Hassan continues.

Hassan:
See, Punk…I’m a businessman. And I don’t like anyone getting in my business. But that’s exactly where you are right now. And you keep getting in my business. I suggest you get out of my business before my business forces you out.

~This threat doesn’t seem to faze Punk

CM Punk
:
Y’know, all that’d bother me, but I haven’t had anything for most of my life, hell, all of my life. I had to scratch and claw from that nothing to make my way into this business, to right here, in this professional wrestling company. The first thing I ever said in AOW was that I am a professional wrestler here to wrestle. And to see you sit here with all your money, not having to work for everything I have to work for, while trying to bully and buy your way through a damn respectful company? I will get in your face, I will get in your business, but most importantly, I will take that title from you. The right way.

~Punk stares intensely at Hassan, and Hassan right back, neither man giving an inch before we fade…


~Back at ringside…


“BREAK DOWN THE WALLS” hits as soon as we arrive back at ringside, with Chris Jericho making his way towards the ring with a nasty scowl on his face and heat thrown at him from every direction. Paul Wright is also followed by a great deal of heat, as both men who vowed to take the title and go make their way to the ring. Jericho looks not so much caring who his opponent is, as much as the fact that he’s competing when he thought he didn’t have to.


Joey Styles:
Coming up on the other side of the break, Chris Jericho, our “Worthy Champion”, will go one-on-one with an opponent of #1 Contender Rob Van Dam’s choosing! Who’ll it be? Does it matter? Just have someone shut Jericho up!

**COMMERCIAL BREAK**


Upon our return, we notice, and Styles tells us, that Jericho hasn’t moved from the spot he was standing in when we went to break, center ring. He’s been getting heckled all throughout the break, not batting an eye towards anyone. Jericho’s waiting, nose in the air, when suddenly “Don’t call it a comeback!” hits the airwaves, as the crowd gives a wild pop for “MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT”, the musical segway to the arrival of Samoa Joe. Joe is just as intense as he was last night, although a small smirk can be seen as now, he gets a shot at the AOW world champion, a match he very much deserves after his absolute war last week, the evidence written in the taped knee underneath his knee pad. The look on Jericho’s face is not a happy one, as he now has to go toe-to-toe with the only other man who’s undefeated thus far in AOW.

MAIN EVENT
Samoa Joe
v.
AOW Champion Chris Jericho w/Paul “The Great” Wright


The bell rings, but the match doesn’t really begin off the bat, as when Joe charges at Jericho, the ‘Worthy Man’ darts through the middle rope, using it as a shield to beg the referee to get Joe away from him. The official starts guiding Joe away, but after taking several steps back, he charges again, with Jericho going right back through the rope shield. The referee again is forced to back Joe away, with the crowd not liking any of this, but Joe not liking it even more. He takes one final charge towards Jericho, grabs his loose ankle, then pulls him away from the ropes, center ring, and attempts to lock in the STF, but Jericho is quick to scurry away under the bottom rope to the outside, where Wright jumps in front of his boss as to protect him, face turned towards Joe in the ring.

Joe is merely looking at this somewhat annoyed, but Jericho’s behind Wright, leaning on the announce table trying to recuperate. Joe doesn’t waste much time, however, doing his theatrics and spinning in place before rebounding off the ropes behind him, hitting the Elbow Suicida right into Wright…who doesn’t fall, but violently staggers back…SANDWICHING JERICHO BETWEEN WRIGHT AND THE ANNOUNCE TABLE. The crowd gives an awesome reaction to this, as Jericho gets crushed by his own beast. Jericho’s reaction, however, is one of open eyed and open mouthed anguish, gripping his crushed spine. Wright is still standing, but he’s staggering over to the announce table for both his own support and to aid Jericho. Joe takes the still recovering Jericho and whips him violently into some steel ring steps, spine first. Jericho’s face again crunches in pain, as Joe stays relentless and virtually throws Jericho back into the ring.

Once back in, Jericho again tries to squirm away, only to get pulled back and snapmared by Joe. Joe then delivers a stiff kick to the sitting Jericho’s back, followed by another and another and another! The crowd is loving this humiliation of Jericho at the moment, Joe almost making sure Jericho’s back gets thrown out here. Joe rears back for one last kick…but Jericho ducks his head, sending the kick over the top of Jericho…until it turns into a low roundhouse to Jericho’s skull. The seamless brawling skills of Joe come into play, as he covers Jericho for the first time – 1…2…3-NO!! Humiliated or not, Jericho doesn’t go so easily.

Joe drags Jericho to his feet, hitting him with a massive CHOP(Woooooo!) before trying to drag him to a corner. Jericho finally gets some offense in here, however, as he starts pounding on the midsection of Joe, getting himself some breathing room. Jericho delivers a hard kick to Joe’s tender knee, finally getting him that room. Jericho clubs Joe on the spine as he tries to recover, but as Jericho backs up and leaps, looking for the Codebreaker…Joe catches him!! Joe’s caught Jericho’s double knees, clutching them to his chest before turning around and forcing Jericho onto the top rope before fixing him up for the Muscle Buster…NO!! Jericho fights Joe off, finally deflecting him with a boot to the face. With Jericho getting space again, he leaps from the top rope and nails Joe in the face with the leaping reverse elbow!!! Joe goes down hard, with Jericho now getting a cover – 1…2…NO!!

Jericho wanted that to end this one badly, so badly, he just starts pounding on Joe with hard fists while on his knees, wailing and clubbing away. The obviously irate Jericho then attempts to keep his momentum going when he grabs both of Joe’s legs, looking for the Walls. Joe still has enough wits about him to fight off one of Jericho’s grips, giving him his uninjured leg to stand on. Joe hops around for a second before hitting Jericho square in the jaw with an enzeguiri. Jericho drops, glazed gazed and face first into the canvas, as Joe shoots the half and tries another pin – 1…2…3…NO!!! Jericho stays worthy!

Joe is surprised at this, but stays on the relentless attack by forcing Jericho to his feet, only to whip him into the opposite ropes. On the rebound, Joe looks for the Samoan Drop that put Finlay through a table last week…but Jericho hangs up on Joe’s shoulders and elbows his way off of them, staying behind Joe and nailing a Russian leg sweep! Another Jericho cover – 1…2…NO! Jericho still can’t end it, as he gets off of Joe and rebounds off the ropes, looking for a momentous kick to the gut it seems, but Joe quickly catches this leg and sends Jericho face first again turning it into an STF. Jericho struggles to get out of this hold, but before he can do so, Joe quickly changes the hold to a Crossface!! A hold Jericho’s been in one too many times in his career is latched on again, but Jericho is able to crawl and clutch a rope, much to everyone’s chagrin. Joe, however, keeps his utter intensity and doesn’t let Jericho escape, chopping the arm on the rope at the elbow and making it a grounded chickenwing crossface!

The crowd’s pop is revitalized at this, but Jericho manages to hold on and not tap, eventually getting to his feet and trying to rip the crossface off his face. As soon as it looks like he does so, Joe lets go of the hold completely, only to clamp onto Jericho’s head and force him back to the canvas, bodyscissors locked in…THE CLUTCH!!! The Clutch!! Joe’s chained through four submission holds to get to his finishing blow! With the champ quickly fading, “The Great” lumbers into the fray, making it into the ring and forcing the referee’s attention away from the task at hand, ordering the giant to get out. Wright doesn’t budge, but he doesn’t have to as Jericho is biting the hand and forearm of Joe, causing him to release the hold, while Jericho then nails repeat blows to the weakened Joe knee to release the bodyscissors. As Jericho gets back to his feet he stalks Joe until he gets to his feet, going again for the Codebreaker, but as he rushes at Joe, the Machine quickly grapples the head again and forces another Clutch!! Another Clutch!! Wright is back on the floor at this point, but looks to intervene again, but Jericho is fading fast, when the crowd starts buzzing…Finlay!! It’s Finlay!! The Fighting Irishman, in plain sight of the referee, darts into the ring and BASHES JOE IN THE WEAKENED KNEE WITH HIS SHILLELAGH!!! The ref immediately calls for the bell!

Winner via DQ: Samoa Joe at (9:56)

The ref calling for the bell doesn’t stop Finlay’s assault, as the club to the knee was only the beginning. As Joe sits up to tend to the damage, Finlay lets loose with ANOTHER SHILLELAGH SHOT TO THE SKULL!!! This potentially puts Joe’s lights out for the first time in AOW, as Jericho looks on in satisfied surprise, the crowd throwing a great deal of heat. Finlay then looks at the downed and out Joe, surveying the damage done…before doing more, SHILLELAGH SHOT TO THE SHOULDER!! Joe comes to life again, only to now grip his shoulder in pain.


Joey Styles:
What the hell is wrong with Finlay?

JBL:
There ain’t a damn thing wrong with Finlay, Joey! This is what you do when you love t’fight and someone like Joe beats you down – you beat’im down in return!

Joey Styles:
It looks like Finlay still is licking his wounds from last week’s brutal war with Samoa Joe last week, but now he’s made sure Joe will be the one doing the would licking, yet oh-so-coincidentally saving Chris Jericho in the process.

JBL:
Oh please, Joey. Finlay did this fer Finlay, but he’s now shown Chris Jericho that he’s worthy too! An’ think about this, Joey, because I’m sure you haven’t at all, but this pretty much spoils RVD’s plans this week of tryin' to one-upping Chris Jericho.

Joey Styles:
Wait, wait, wait…what’s this?


Finlay is still looking to put the hurt on Joe, raising the staff again, but before he can do anything, “WALK” hits, only for RVD to come shooing from behind the curtain and sliding in the ring to a huge pop, beginning a brawl with Finlay. Chris Jericho, still in the ring, rolls out to the outside, where Wright meets him and they begin treking back up the ramp. Van Dam starts pulling away before nailing Finlay with a high kick to the jaw, sending him leaning on the ropes. As Van Dam looks behind him, Samoa Joe has gotten to his feet, still in pain, but shows sheer intensity by rushing at Finlay and Cactus clotheslining him over the rope, tumbling with Finlay to the floor. Joe lands on his knee, but it collapses on him due to its damage. The final image of this Oblivion is that of RVD looking from the ring all the way up the ramp to Jericho, who’s clutching his title and with his giant, both champion and contender knowing that one step ahead might not be enough this time.

Fade…

Default Re: Presenting AOW: Art of War Wrestling - The Greatest Affair

First off, I wanna apologize for not being able to review the super show. I've just been getting slammed with stuff the past month, so I barely had time to read through it. It was good, by the way, but on to my review of this week's show. Again, I will be reviewing as I read, because it saves me time, and I tend to be a little more in depth with it.

The opening package was done very well. Don't know what else to say about it then that, so let's move on.

I was a little worried that you were going to continue the Jericho-RVD feud, which I thought would have gotten stale quick, but giving RVD the shot instead has me excited! Going into the triple threat, RVD had more of a rivalry with HBK then he did Y2J (wow, I just realized that the three stars all have three-letter nick names... that made me smile), so knowing that the Rob Van Dam-Jericho thing is going to expand more has me pretty geeked. The "RVD chooses Jericho's opponents until the PPV" thing could also be really cool, and could provide some really good matches. You have me instantly excited for your next pay per view!

The Foley-Torrie segment was very well done. I was wondering how you were going to explain why she cared so much about Christian, and the way that you did it was very well. It added a new emotional depth to the Christian angle, and I am now more interested then ever in the story... however, I am kind of upset that you cut it short... okay, maybe not that you cut it short, but the way you went about it. Having Torrie simply say "I guess we'll talk later" when she was that emotional made it flow not as well as it could have, if that makes any sense. Moving onward, though, the way that Foley told Jericho off was pretty damn good, and it made sense, so that makes up for the ending of the Torrie segment.

Aero Star's debut definitely made an impact! While I'm not fond of the fact that the match was so short, it did it's job and made me excited to see what Aero can do in a longer match! I'm kinda worried that Jamie is falling into the jobber category, though.

Having Mysterio put Bryan over was really cool to see. Per norm, though, Helms stole the segment! One has to wonder if the "Foot under the ropes" thing is legit or if it's something he photo shopped, since clearly he has skills with computers... I think that that could be an interesting place to take this story line if you weren't already thinking it, by the way.

The official debut of Low Jack as a true, blue tag team was really good, and I think that these guy's could end up having the chops to be champions one day... that said, I have a bit of a concern to voice. Much like Jamie Noble, I'm worried that the Mexicools are going to be nothing but glorified jobbers at the rate that they're going, and, with two men of their talent, that would be kind of a pity.

You have a few options for the tag title feud going into the PPV, but it looks like you might be going with Burchill and Brent... while that would be an incredible match, that would make Haas & Benjamin faces, and I think that that team works best as heels. With them simply being a good team who respects their foes, it's a little vanilla, but as heels, they can be that damn good, know it, and flaunt it off like they were... well, title belts! This is just my opinion, but I don't think that the World's Greatest Tag Team should be face for too long... even their name flaunts arrogance!

Airing the Sons of the Dungeon and American Made segments back to back is a good move, because that would set them up for an instant feud after they debut, in my opinion with the Sons of the Dungeon being the face team. I'm looking forward to both teams, but I'm more so looking forward to what your going to do with American Made. With SotD, I can kind of guess where your going to go with that, but beyond being obnoxiously Americana, I can't put a finger on AM, and I don't think that your going to leave them at just that.

Having Jericho play off of Torrie's weaknesses is a great move. I can see this becoming a really good long-term story line culminating in a Jericho-Christian match for the belt. No offense to the rest of your work, but this has got to be my favorite story line you have going on right now... yes, something topped the "Hacked by Helms" segments, and that's a hell of a feat!

Before I go into the Hassan-Punk altercation, I just want to say that having Punk shove Miz out of the frame was really funny! However, I have an idea for Miz. He royally kissed Hassan's ass and, while that works, I think it would be a bit more entertaining if Miz was an ass to everyone instead of just the faces. I mean, Torrie's usually pretty nice to everyone despite being a face or a heel, so I think that having the Miz be the polar opposite would be really fun to read... just a thought.

It looks like your building Hassan-Punk to be an upper class-blue collar feud, and I'm okay with that. The segment was done pretty well (In large part because I love Hassan's character here, and I could see Punk saying all of those things), and I'm kind of geeked that your continuing (Or at least appear to be continuing) the Punk-Hassan feud for a bit longer.

Jeez, talk about RVD coming out with his guns blazing! The match was really good, but you shocked me with the finish. I was expecting Wright to come out with the save, but I guess I shouldn't have been that shocked by Finlay interfering. It looks like your continuing a lot of feuds from the super show... not a bad thing, but I'm hoping that you throw in a batch of new feuds, lest this become supershow part 2. That's something that WWE does a lot that kinda rubs me the wrong way, advertise the exact same pay per view as the last one, only one or two matches have different stipulations to them.

All in all, I think that this was a pretty good show (Definitely not a show that I think was worthy of an "I don't think this was my best" at the end of it). You started to show the feuds and storyline's going into the pay per view, and I'm generally excited for what you've shown so far. Other then a few complaints, good show mate.

It was of course the natural choice to start off with Jericho and The Great~! given what happened on the supershow. Was pretty short and sweet from Jericho, very straight to the point from the champ. I perhaps would have liked to see you play on the victory and make more of the fact that in a short span of time Jericho has not only made Michaels submit but now also pinned RVD. That fact kinda felt like a bit of a throw away. I predicted you would go with RVD/Jericho in a singles feud in my supershow feedback, so glad to see RVD out. The pay per view announcement sounds good, and its an interesting way to have it go with RVD picking Jericho's opponents from here on out. Perhaps a bit strange for a face to have that kind of control, but I guess it works in this situation. SHort but sweet interaction, but some big points put across and a solid opening to the show.

Interesting development in the Torrie/Christian situation, certainly explains a few querries I had from the supershow. Nice work in the way you had Torrie play up the sympathy act and try appeal to Foley's reasonable side. Also a nice bit of character development for Christian, a really stark contrast compared to the psycho we saw previously. Very interesting stuff, and I can't help but wonder what the pay off from this could be. Could go a few ways, but I'm rooting for Torrie helping Christian get back in the door only to then slap Mick in the face and reveal a relationship with Christian. Jericho in, liked the whole mountain analogy between the two. Not a whole lot of development here in terms of the storyline, as Foley's reasoning for his decision was pretty straightforward, but that last little comment from Jericho is certainly worth keeping an eye on.

Cool to see the new pick up a win. As I've said previously, I know nothing about this Aero Star, but you've obviously done your research in preperation for his arrival, as you put together an impressive series of moves for him. at ay dios mio, I'm gonna assume Styles is screaming that during the finish? Anyway, solid win for the newcomer, I'm sure he'll have a big rol to play in the expansion of the division.

Another short interaction, this time between Rey and Bryan. Was beggining to turn into a bit of a love in, but at least we had the clear message from Rey that the target is now firmly on Bryan's back. Thankfully they were hacked by Helms, and I really liked the blatant lies from Helms regarding his actions during the match last week, real good heel actions here. Strong words from Helms, and this promo could really lead him either way, although I suspect first will be another losing effort from Bryan and then hopefully a feud with Rey. But yeah, Helms is such a strong character for you with a very interesting gimmick, good stuff with him once again.

You haven't really done much with The Mexicools in this thread, and that continued here as they put over the newly formed team. Obviously there's a very interesting dynamic between the two, and that of course should lead to some interesting backstage moments between them. As for the action, some very impressive moves on display, you obviously enjoy writing that fast paced cruiserweight style. More sensible, if a tad predictible, booking, but I could see these two rising up the tag team ranks pretty quickly after this. Although JBL's commentary suggests they might still have a role to play in the cruiserweight division.

Makes sense that after seeing a new tag grab a win we hear from the champs, although it was also good to hear from Burchill and Albright. I like that name Mercenaries, and certainly the chat regarding honor and respect was a nice way to go. Although, much like every other speaking segment tonight, was rather short and sweet. I'm seeing a pattern develop here.

And more tag teams in the video! God, you've really focused on your 'divisions' tonight with first the cruisers and now the tags getting plenty of love.

Muc better interaction between Jericho and Torrie, this really was on the money. Jericho using Torrie for his own gain really fits in with his character, and I really liked the way you presented Torrie, some very strong words from her. Nice to see a female character with such an edge to her, something I always enjoy writing myself. As I said earlier, I very much see Torrie being succesful with regards to her furture conversations with Foley, and this has definitely got the potential to be a big story going forward. Does Christian perhaps return at the PPV and cost Van Dam?

Ha, poor Miz. Just not his night at all. Punk was spot on here, liked the way he called out Hassan for his actions in winning the title. I still think that at some point we'll have Punk and Storm go after The Mercenaries, and you could very easily tie that back into this Punk/Hassan situation. Certainly this has to lead to a match for the gold, perhaps at the pay per view, but after a few short, uninspiring promos from earlier, the last two have certainly been on the money. Good stuff here.

Makes sense that given his impressive victory at the supershow that Joe was the chosen opponent, and it was certainly another tough match here. Really liking what you're doing with Joe in this thread, he's been pretty beastly so far, and that was further emphasized here with the way he went after Wight during the match as well as Jericho. I thought that spit at the supershow would mean that Joe/Finlay wasn't over and it certainly appears that way, the DQ doing nobody any harm. Perhaps it highlights a poor choice on Van Dam's part by choosing a man who had both an injury and a pissed off opponent, but Van Dam certainly got his mojo back with the post match attack. Typical Jericho in him heading for the hills, but with RVD standing tall the first main event of the first pay per view has got off to a solid start.

Overall, a very decent fall out show. The early promos and interviews were very short, but the matches certainly entertained, and you came good at the end. Some really nice storyline development throughout, with perhaps the most interesting situation being that of Torrie/Jericho/Foley, which has the potentail to take all kinds of twists and turns. You know I'll be beack to see how it all develops.

Starting with Jericho was a given and it was pretty short but to the point. RVD interrupting is fine by me and a one on one feud between the two would certainly be good to see. RVD was also fairly swift in his comments, match at World Ablaze will no doubt be a good one and RVD getting to pick Jericho’s opponents until then is certainly unique. Solid start.

Nice stuff with Torrie and Foley here, glad you pointed out the deal between her and Christian as it was puzzling. Jericho interrupting was great as he leaves his worthy man gimmick behind momentarily lol. Nice little power struggle going on here and I hope it continues between Jericho and Foley, much enjoyed this segment.

Good showcase match here for Aero Star here. Is Star Sin Cara by the way? If not, then I’m completely clueless lol. Sadly Noble never stood a chance but I liked how you’ve introduced Star and hope you continue to build his momentum in the coming weeks.

Typical face interaction here from Rey and Danielson. Helms showing his face certainly added a lot to this segment and I really hope he and Danielson continue their feud for quite a while yet. The stuff last week was great and I’m glad you had Helms point out that it was he who got the pins to get them to the end. A straight one on one match for the title could steal the show.

LowJack are certainly are unique combo and it was a big win here for them. I’m not surprised they won and I’m glad the Mexicools put up a strong effort here. You’re certainly doing a good job in keeping all of the roster competitive although it was a bit too predictable who was winning the first two match ups here tonight. LowJack, whether they go on in the tag ranks or their separate ways in the Cruiserweight division are certainly worth keeping an eye on.

Enjoyed the WGTT and the Mercenaries interaction here. Burchill was excellent when he said we respect and honour those who pay us, he is right lol. A match between these two teams would be nice although I see maybe another shot for the Hooliganz first up.

Very good stuff with Jericho and Torrie here. Really does seem that Christian’s emotionally unstable right now which is a great approach, certainly refreshing character for a guy like Christian. Jericho’s little arrangement with Torrie should be interesting and I’m liking how this is all playing out, hard to call which is good.

Punk/Hassan feud could be superb and this was a glimpse of why. Such polar opposites in this thread with Hassan buying his way up the ladder against the honourable Punk. Loved how Hassan said his business will force Punk out, was a great line and Punk countering with the passionate little speech at the end was nicely done. Should be a good encounter when these two go at it.

Jericho/Joe main event, yes please. Match up was solid and you certainly enhanced Joe yet again after his match with Finlay last week. Ending surprised me a little bit as I thought perhaps Joe and Finlay were over with, wasn’t sure but this implies not which I’m all for, another showdown between those two. RVD showing his face had to happen at some point here, though I’d rather Jericho made it two on one and Van Dam made the save. Nice ending on the whole though.

Overall you said you didn’t think this was your best and of course you’ll think that following a great Supershow last week, always hard to follow but you did a good job here. Opening promo was a bit short but other than that and maybe the matches being a bit obvious, you did a fine job here. All the feuds moved forward a notch and developed really nicely as well as handing a nice debut win for Aero Star. I’m sure next week steps up again, good job.

Thanks in bunches, fellas. I greatly appreciate the kind words and feedback, especially considering I didn't think it was my best show. The next one's slow coming seeing as how I'm busy and will be for a while, but it shouldn't be so bad. I'll be returning some feed over the next few days, time willing. But enough chatter. Down to business.

First off, there isn't much knowledge between folks about the man they call Aero Star, so here's his Wiki page and a link to a video highlighting him from YouTube

Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aero_Star
Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zM488...uA8Ew&index=39

Hope that at least clarifies that about him. And no, he's not Sin Cara . But again, to business. Which for now is a preview...

“Deceive the Heavens to Cross the Ocean…”


Last week, we saw in the intense revelation of the main event for the first ever AOW PPV event, World Ablaze. Rob Van Dam will face Chris Jericho for the Worthy Man’s AOW Championship! But Jericho’s immense power trip has hit a snag, as we also learned that General Manager Mick Foley has granted RVD complete control of Chris Jericho’s opponents every week leading into the event! With the tables now turned on Jericho, he apparently has turned his attention towards the very vulnerable Torrie Wilson to manipulate his way back into power. What’s next for Jericho? What’s next for RVD? And potentially most importantly, what role will Torrie play in the grand scheme of things…?

Speaking of ‘intense revelations’, the destructive hatred between Dave Finlay and Samoa Joe seems like it’s not over. Despite their absolute war at AOW’s Supershow two weeks ago, it seems like it won’t end. Finlay doesn’t seem to take losing very well, destroying Samoa Joe with repeated shillelagh shots during Joe’s match against Chris Jericho last week. Does the man who loves to fight have an answer for his continued assault of Joe? These two men of few words still have plenty of bad blood between them that needs to be resolved somehow, which quite possibly won’t be until one of or both of these men are in fact in blood.

The concept of ‘intensity’ rages all the way through the rings of AOW – from the top of the mountain to the base of it. And CM Punk isn’t going to let Muhammad Hassan forget that. Punk vehemently expressed his discontent with the manner in which Hassan not only won the title, but very much so plans to keep it. Hassan insisted Punk was just jealous, but Punk says it runs deeper than that – it’s also about both men’s very livelihood, with Punk targeting the fact that he’s paying his way to the top with The Mercenaries – the team of Paul Burchill and Brent Albright – at his disposal. That same team interrupted the title match between Hassan and Rey Mysterio at the Supershow, but were quickly turned away by Punk and another man with a great sense of honor, Lance Storm. This week, all six of these men lock horns to resolve their ‘intensity’.

Gregory Helms thinks he’s an innocent man, the cruiserweights have a brand new face in Aero Star, and the tag team division has new blood as well in Low Jack, but even more on the way! The landscape of AOW is rapidly changing, with a PPV, an extended timeslot, and an incredible roster all coming together. So don’t you miss a single second of the action – this Wednesday, 9/8c on FX!



.:Confirmed for Oblivion:.

CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, & Lance Storm v. Muhammad Hassan & The Mercenaries

Samoa Joe and Finlay in attendance
Hope this'll be up in a few days. Hope all is well for all 'til then.

Appreciating the links for Aero Star, gives a good insight into the new guy. Loved that no-hands suicide dive in the video, very nice.

As for the show, looks pretty tidy. Fully expecting some kind of physical interaction between Finlay and Joe given the way last week's show ended. Also looking forward to see what Van Dam has in store for Jericho this week, and of course whatever twists you have lined up for the Torrie/Christian angle. Six man looks pretty solid given what's went down recently too. All in all, looks like a good show on tap. I'll be reading.

The first image we have on our screens isn’t an introduction vignette, but instead, we see the image of Gregory Helms walking down a hallway in the Hammerstein. He’s got what looks to be a DVD in his hand. He bursts into an room labeled “Mick Foley”, where we can indeed see Mick Foley sitting at his desk, computer up, taking notice of Helms stepping in.

Gregory Helms:
Mr. Foley, when I said I had something you need t’see immediately, I meant right away, not later on tonight.

Mick Foley:
I’d appreciate it if you knocked, dude, but what’s this about?

Gregory Helms:
I have exclusive footage of proof that I should be Cruiserweight Champion and not Bryan Danielson. At the very least, he should be stripped of that title he doesn’t deserve!

Mick Foley:
Oh, you mean that whole ‘my foot was under the ropes’ gig…? Yeah, I saw it when you did it last week, Greg. I’m not convinced.

Gregory Helms:
Not convinced…? Not convinced that I thoroughly deserve a rematch for a title he never deserved to win? A guy I never deserved to lose to? This is a corrupt administration, ain’t it?

Mick Foley:
(cell phone seems to go off, holds it in his hand)
Look, Greg, we’ll go over this some other time, alright? And I’m not ‘corrupt’. I’m doin’ exactly what I need to do. Hello?
~As Foley exits the room to take his phone call, Helms is left with a nasty scowl on his face. He does, however, take note of Mick’s computer screen still being left up

Gregory Helms:
Who’re you e-mailin’, Mr. Foley…? Oh, Paul Heyman. Well let’s see what Mr. Heyman has to say about my rematch…

~Helms inserts his DVD of footage and starts ticking away at the computer, a very satisfied grin on his face. It only takes a second for a response, with Foley not having been returned. Helms’ eyes seem to pan the page before becoming a sinister grin. Helms quickly takes his disk and walks out of the room, giving Foley a quick unhappy look before continuing on down the hall, still grinning from ear to ear…

Chris Jericho holds the AOW World title high in the air

***

We’re introduced to a yet again completely filled Hammerstein, with the crowd going nuts. The pop is sustained, but pauses for a second to listen to the sound system explode with “Don’t call it a comeback!”, as “MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT”, which introduces us to the serious and intense Samoa Joe, filling the arena with his stoicness. He’s in competition attire, looking a tad more pissed off than usual, his right knee still in bandages from the assault he suffered a week ago. He gets to the ring, mike in hand, obviously prepared to say what’s on the mind of a man who loves knockin’ people out.


Joe:
Two weeks ago, I walked through those double doors to the locker room with only one thing on my mind. And that was beat Finlay to a pulp. And see, I’m a real goal-oriented guy. I think of something, I do it, and then it’s on to the next thing. So I had ‘beat Finlay to a pulp’ on my mind. And then I did it. I did it pretty damn well, might I add.
~The Hammerstein gives a damn good pop, the smartass side to Joe showing a bit

Joe
:
So it was on to the next thing on my mind, the next goal…and that was shut Chris Jericho the hell up by taking that AOW Championship from him.

~Another solid pop

Joe:

So I got to the arena last week, just walking through those double doors when Chris Jericho said that there was ‘no one left’ to defend his title against. And before I could walk on through that curtain and shut him up then and there, RVD walks on out and tells us that he’s got the shot at our first ever Pay-Per-View, World Ablaze.

~Joe pauses, a bit disappointed about that, wipes his mouth

Joe:

So when Rob came up to me and said ‘I want you to face Jericho’, he did me a damn big favor. Not only did everyone see that I can go toe-to-toe with the champ, but I can beat him to a pulp, too.

~Another solid ovation

Joe:

So I had a new goal in mind...but Finlay couldn’t let me beating him go. Now I’m not a whiner or a complainer, I’m a straight shootin’ guy. I didn’t come out here to tell Finlay to back off, I didn’t come out here to demand a rematch with Jericho, no, I came out here to look Finlay in the eyes and tell him to bring it on if he wants to do this again.


Joe lowers the microphone, getting into a squatting, lowered position, ready to tackle Finlay should he make his way to the ring. Joe’s ready! The crowd is popping for what might be another arena-wide brawl here, but their pop turns into a sour patch of heat when “BREAK DOWN THE WALLS” hits the speakers, as AOW Champion Chris Jericho makes his way to the entrance stage, but he’s not leading the way. Instead, he’s got Paul “The Great” Wright walking in front of him, obviously for protection. With the rabid display Joe showed on both men last week, he has good reason. Wright steps into the ring in front of Jericho, who’s got a mike in his hands.

Chris Jericho:
Now, Joe, I know somewhere underneath that savage shell, there’s a reasonable man who knows what’s good for him and what isn’t. And I strongly suggest you stay out of my way if you do know what’s best.

~The crowd delivers heat for this, as Jericho is saying this while keeping Wright as a wall

Chris Jericho:
If I’m understood correctly, you and Rob Van Dam have been friends for as long as both of you have been wrestling, correct?


Samoa Joe:
What d’you want, Jericho? Yeah, so me and Rob go a-ways back. What’s that t’you?

Chris Jericho:
Well, it just occurred to me that people who are ‘friends’ tend to get in each other’s business, even if it doesn’t concern them. Now Joe, I will be the first person to admit you put on a great match with me last week. But see the thing is facing me for the AOW Championship is none of your concern, nor should it be your friend Rob’s because he doesn’t deserve it.

~The last sentence is said while drowning in heat, still from behind Wright

Samoa Joe
:
Funny you should mention that friends get in each other’s business, Jericho. It just so happens that I got attacked last week while I was dealing with you and your business…you wouldn’t know anything about that, would you Jericho?

~The crowd begins to buzz a bit…

Chris Jericho:
No. As I matter of fact I wouldn’t know anything about that. But he might.


The crowd buzz is resolved when Samoa Joe is pelted from behind with a hard shillelagh shot to the back of the head!! It’s Finlay yet again!!! A great deal of heat is delivered once again, as the staff of Finlay comes into play once again, downing the Samoan Submission Machine. Finlay is quick to capitalize yet again, delivering another hard shot to the taped and injured left knee!! Joe grits his teeth in agony and holds his injured appendage while Jericho orders Wright to “go guard the ramp” while he and Finlay jump on Joe like rabid dogs, stomping away all over Joe’s body. Wright leaves the ring to guard the entrance ramp, but his attention is soon back to the ring. With the boots being lain into, Joe manages to get to one knee and pushes Finlay away, grabbing Jericho’s leg and turning it into an Ankle Lock attempt! Jericho knows he’s in trouble and tries to scurry away, but Joe pulls him back. Jericho thinks on his foot and nails Joe in the already battered head with an enzeguiri. Joe falls again, potentially concussed, with Finlay again approaching Joe to beat him down when suddenly…

“WALK” hits over the speakers, as Rob Van Dam charges down the ramp to a grand pop yet again, full force. Wright is his obstacle in the middle of the ramp, getting ready for him, but as he lowers his head to maybe ram into Van Dam, but RVD ROLLS OVER THE BACK OF THE BIG MAN, never breaking stride on the way to the ring. Van Dam slides in and immediately causes Jericho and Finlay to scatter, although when Jericho scurries, he heads right back up the ramp with Wright, while Finlay is left at ringside, staring a hole in Van Dam. Joe is pissed beyond belief, on his feet now, forcing Finlay to find a new target to stare through. Van Dam takes the microphone that Joe was holding a few moments ago…


RVD:
I don’t deserve a title shot, Jericho? If anyone around here doesn’t deserve anything, it’s you! You don’t deserve that AOW Championship, that’s for sure, dude!

~The Hammerstein agrees tenfold

RVD:

And maybe you forgot a little somethin’, Chris. I still have the power to pick all your opponents from now until World Ablaze. So I’ve got a match for you…and you. TONIGHT.

~RVD points to Jericho and Finlay with each respective ‘you’

RVD:

Jericho, your bodyguard is banned from ringside when you and Finlay take on Samoa Joe…and ME – R…V…D!!

~The crowd delivers a huge pop for this main event announcement tonight, all joining in on RVD’s thumbs. Joe has a look of pure and sheer intensity staring back at Finlay around the announce table, while RVD is caught in the same image as last week, and that’s staring up the ramp, guns blazing, looking back at his cowardly world title opponent in five weeks.

**COMMERCIAL BREAK**

As we return from the break, we immediately are greeted to the sound of “MISERE CANTARE” hitting the speakers, as CM Punk bursts on through the curtain to a very nice ovation. Punk storms onto the stage, reminding everyone that “Its clobberin’ time!” on his way to the ring, we hear JBL and Styles for the first time in tonight’s broadcast.

Joey Styles:
Greetings ladies and gentlemen, to this edition of Wednesday Night Oblivion. I’m Joey Styles here with my colleague John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield, where just a few moments ago, we got the special announcement of our main event – Rob Van Dam and Samoa Joe will tag up to face the team of Finlay and the AOW Champion and RVD’s opponent in five weeks at World Ablaze, Chris Jericho.

JBL:
Y’know, I’ve said it over an’ over again – Mick Foley is a complete idiot. He’s givin’ his power to Rob Van Dam to solve some sort of power dilemma with Chris Jericho, an’ it’s makin’ him look like the dumbest sumbitch on the planet.

Joey Styles:
This match was indeed confirmed by Rob Van Dam, who has the power to choose Chris Jericho’s opponents from now until World Ablaze. And of course the no holds barred rivalry between Samoa Joe and Finlay continues to rage, as Finlay blindsided Joe yet again earlier tonight.

JBL:
Blindside nothin’. If Joe was as great a fighter as he thinks he is, he’d a’ seen that one comin’.

Joey Styles:
Typical Bradshaw banter there…

JBL:
The hell is that supposed to mean?

Joey Styles:
Oh, nothing. Onto the task at hand here, where we’re set to kick off with big six-man tag action with this brigade being led it seems by this man – JBL’s favorite AOW star, CM Punk.

JBL:
The day CM Punk becomes a guy I remotely even like will be the day the New York Yankees never win another World Series, the Chicago Cubs do, and I go broke. I can’t stand anything from Chicago, but there is somethin’ special about this kid that just makes me hate his guts.


As Styles facepalms out of frustration and JBL dryly delivers that hate spiel, CM Punk finishes warming up a bit before “STORM LANCING” greets us to a welcome and warm reaction to Lance Storm. Storm does indeed storm on down to the ring and shares a very emphatic handshake with CM Punk, both men seemingly being very trusting of each other tonight.

As both men talk some things over, “619 ESTA VIVO” blares over the sound system now, getting the biggest pop out of all in attendance, as Rey Mysterio Jr. lets his presence be known. Mysterio makes his way on down the aisle, pumped as can be, although he is still tending to his left knee, which we saw him bracing last week.

There is an intense whiplash when “MAD MAN” meets the threshold, as Muhammad Hassan comes on through, AOW Dynasty Championship in hand. He waits on the entrance stage, not daring to go anywhere near three men who have their issues with them, Punk staring him down the hardest. He stays with a scowl on his face until “WELCOME TO WHITECHAPEL” hits, as the team who have labeled themselves The Mercenaries, Paul Burchill and Brent Albright, make their way to the entrance with Hassan, all three men walking on down the ramp together, no context, just a mission.

OPENING CONTEST
CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, & Lance Storm v. AOW Dynasty Champion Muhammad Hassan & The Mercenaries


Starting the contest are the real two hottest prospects in wrestling in CM Punk and Brent Albright, with all due respect to Ken Doane. Both men circle on another until they lock-up, Albright getting ahead with a rabid looking headlock, which prompts Punk to throw him off of him and into the ropes. On the rebound, Albright immediately surprises everyone by crunching Punk’s midsection with a hard, momentous knee. Punk immediately doubles over, almost goes flipping into himself. Albright stomps on his head for good measure before tagging in Burchill.

Burchill steps in and starts pounding on the grounded Punk, Hassan rooting him on, telling him to ‘break his jaw’ so that Punk can’t ever mouth off at him again. Burchill finally lets Punk get to his feet, only to stalk him for a clothesline, which Punk dodges and counters with a back kick to the gut followed quickly by several elbows. This allows Punk to get the tag in to Lance Storm, who climbs in delivers his own kick to the midsection of Burchill before throwing him into the ropes, catches him in what looks to be a hip toss, but Burchill leaps to the side and avoids it and tries to flip Storm himself, but Storm counters this also with a kick to the gut followed quickly by a DDT. The first cover - 1…2…NO!

Storm takes advantage now, staying on Burchill, who tries to make room with hard elbow shots, allowing him to bounce off the ropes, but on this rebound, Storm gets up high with a leg lariat, surprising Burchill yet again, covering yet again – 1…2…3-NO! Burchill rabidly makes his way out of the pin, with Storm looking to set up for a superkick of sorts, but Burchill captures the kick and throws Storm around, forcing his back to him, which he quick grapples and nails a Regal plex that looks legitimately stiff, with Storm’s neck hitting the canvas as though he wasn’t prepared for it. Burchill keeps the cradle locked in – 1…2…3-NO!! Storm throws his legs up, but he’s noticeably gripping the back of his neck, as it looks like the Mercenaries have a target.

With an open wound now, Burchill takes the face-down Storm and forces his knee into his neck, holding onto his head and legs, making some sort of Bow-and-Arrow hold, but with the knee focused on the neck. Storm is trying to yell in agony, but Burchill is using his chin as a grip, keeping his mouth shut. The crowd, Punk, and Mysterio are all trying to get Storm back into things, which finally pays off with Storm swinging wildly behind him and nailing Burchill with another back elbow, forcing Burch to let go. When he finally gets to his feet, Storm immediately goes back down with a decapitating clothesline, his targeted neck whiplashing nastily. At this point, Hassan finally wants in on a damaged opponent.

Hassan jumps on the downed Storm, stomping on his targeted neck before looking into his opposing corner, taunting both Punk and Mysterio before taking Storm and locking in the Camel Clutch. The work on the neck of Storm is causing him to fade incredibly quickly, but Punk nor Mysterio can really do anything….but this doesn’t stop Punk from flying into the frame out of nowhere with a springboard clothesline, knocking Hassan off of Storm. Punk has emphatically broken the hold, but he’s not done. Hassan is forced to roll out of the ring, but Punk follows him, catching him against a steel post with the knee to the face before potentially setting up for the finishing combo bulldog, which he promptly turns into throwing Hassan into and displacing some steel ring steps!!

Inside the ring, the referee is ordering Punk to get back in with Hassan, but while his back is turned, chaos begins to reign in the ring, with Mysterio coming in to fend off both members of the Mercenaries from beating on a prone Storm. Mysterio gives out several forearm shots to Albright before delivering some calf kicks to Burchill, but the referee regains some control when he orders Mysterio back to his corner when Punk rolls Hassan back in. By the time this happens, however, Lance Storm has taken a nasty beating, but he’s able to reach his corner with order restored to get Mysterio in.

Hassan, who was trying to crawl to his corner as well, is stopped when Mysterio leaps on top of Hassan. Once he prevents this, Mysterio takes Hassan and brings him to his feet, only for Hassan to immediately go for the same strategy he had two weeks ago and starts kicking at the injured knee. Mysterio winces in pain, but recovers to deliver a calf kick to Hassan. This gets him some space to rebound off the ropes, ducking underneath a Hassan clothesline…springboard crossbody!! Mysterio with a cover – 1…2…3-NO!! Both men are quick to get back on their feet, but Mysterio greets Hassan immediately with the inverted bodyscissors bulldog!! Another cover – 1…2…NO!! Hassan won’t go down!! As Hassan struggles to get to his feet, Mysterio has something else prepared, rushing into the ropes yet again, but while Rey’s back is turned on the rush, Hassan bows out of the ring, with Brent Albright entering but very close to his corner. As Rey rushes back, expecting to see Hassan, instead, he gets A DIVING SHOULDER BLOCK TO THE INJURED KNEE AT AN ANGLE FROM ALBRIGHT, sending Mysterio flipping!!

The referee is now on Albright’s case, but he’s got a satisfied grin on his face. While the ref’s back is turned this time, Hassan roams over to the neck-weakened Storm and yanks him off the apron, neck whiplashing off the floor. Punk, not going to stand for this, goes to aid partner and friend, but winds up drawing the ref’s attention himself, his back now to the ring again. While Punk argues that Hassan knocked Storm off, inside the ring, Albright has Mysterio in a catapult ready position…as he catapults Mysterio right into a Paul Burchill second-rope diving clothesline!!! Mysterio is absolutely beheaded, as the Mercenaries quickly clear the scene for Hassan to come back in. As if this were all premeditated, Paul Burchill takes the still arguing Punk on the outside and bounces his head off a ring post! Hassan and a dead Mysterio are left in the ring now, as Hassan covers the scraps – 1…2…3…!!!

Winners: Muhammad Hassan & The Mercenaries at (10:03)

Hassan leaps off the body of Mysterio and gets handed his Dynasty Championship, both Mercenaries beside him. They lift both of Hassan’s arms in victory, their own going into the air as well. They all seem very proud of the destruction they’ve caused all around them, with Punk being the only one to be fully aware of the evils committed here, gripping his head, while Storm is still down gripping his neck and Mysterio has yet to move. Hassan stares at Punk and motions towards the title over his shoulder, saying “You’ll never touch this, Punk! You hear me! My business is too good!”. All Punk can do is lick his wounds and stare into the ring in anger and frustration.

~Backstage…

We fade backstage now, where we’re shown the office of the General Manager, Mick Foley. Someone suddenly bursts into the room and the frame, and it’s a pair of guys we haven’t seen in quite a while – Ken Doane and Chris Masters. They look pissed, but Foley ignores them for a good while until Doane, the closer man, pounds a fist on his desk, forcing Foley to look up from whatever he was doing.


Mick Foley:
Can I help you with something, gentlemen?

Doane:
As a matter of fact, you can, ‘Matchmaker Mick’. See, Chris Jericho’s been saying for weeks now that you’re part of a terrible administration. And me and Masters here…we whole heartedly agree.

Mick Foley:
Well that’s nice guys. Glad to see you’ve been doing something while you’ve been here.

Masters:
No, see, that’s the thing, Foley. We haven’t been doing anything since we’ve been here. You’ve got the two hottest prospects in the entire wrestling world at your disposal, but you have time to give people like RVD power like that?

Doane:
Yeah, and even when you do use your hottest prospects, you do things like put them in matches against monsters like Samoa Joe!

Masters:
And we DEMAND that you treat us like the treasures we are! We are here to make an IMPACT!

~Foley gets up from his desk and looks both of these complainers in the eyes

Mick Foley:
Okay, look…you guys wanna be in on this together, fine. I get it. But don’t come barging in here and tellin’ me how to do my job, alright? You wanna make an impact, fine. Masters, you’re on tonight. Doane, you’re up next week. One on one matches for the both o’ya.

~Doane and Masters seem satisfied by this

Doane:
Yeah…we’ll show you impact, old man. Come on, Chris.

~Masters and Doane exit the frame, leaving Foley to his uncharacteristically serious manner tonight. Foley quickly changes back to his teddy-bear persona a second later, however, as the next face to enter the scene is that of the gorgeous Torrie Wilson.

Torrie Wilson
:
Hi Mick.

~She greets the teddy-like Foley with a warm hug

Mick Foley:
Hey…hey Torrie! Is uh everything okay with you and your…situation.

Torrie Wilson:
Um…I kinda feel bad about having to make you listen to my situation, Mick. I kinda wanted to talk to you about your situation.

Mick Foley:
My situation…? There’s no problems right here – in the Hammerstein Ballroom, New York!

~Foley flashes a toothy grin and a thumbs up towards the camera, the crowd giving him his cheap pop

Torrie Wilson
:
Your situation. With RVD and Jericho.

Mick Foley:
Oh…oh oh oh. That’s no problem for you to be concerned with, Tor. That’s a business matter. And I’m more concerned about your personal matter.

Torrie Wilson:
But Mick uh…don’t you think it’s kind of ridiculous to give one guy complete control of another? I mean, isn’t that a bit hypocritical? And it doesn’t make you look like the greatest General Manager, if you don’t mind me saying. Friend to a friend.

Mick Foley:
I’m just trying to teach Jericho a lesson, Tor. Ease up on this power trip he’s so obsessed with.

Torrie Wilson:
But Mick…why counter the ‘power trip’ of one man with that of another…? What if you trying to stop Jericho’s ‘power trip’ only makes RVD want more power himself….?

~Foley actually takes a second to run his fingers through his beard on that one

Mick Foley:
…you might be onto somethin’ there…thank you, Torrie, for your input. Friend to a friend.

~Foley walks back to his desk, potentially to lull over his new revelation. Wilson turns and begins to walk out of his office. The camera follows Torrie on the way out, where each steps she takes her face goes from being friendly to being disgusted…most likely at herself. She leaves the room and closes the door behind her, where she stops and looks as though she’s about to be sick…as the camera pans a tad to the left to see Chris Jericho standing right beside her and the door, having heard the entire conversation.

Chris Jericho:
Hmm…I think you could’ve done better. But I think he gets the drift. Well done –

~As Jericho reaches to put a hand through Torrie’s hair, she angrily turns her head and walks away from the sinisterly smirking Worthy Champion

Chris Jericho:
Well done…puppet.

~Jericho smirks yet again, crossing his arms, before the camera slowly gets closer to his face and sinister grin as we fade away…

**Video Package**

We’re brought to what appears to be the center of “The Dungeon”, two shadowed figures standing tall

Flashes go by of both men nailing the Hart Attack on two other figures, quickly followed by both men locking in Sharpshooters on their opponents. This is all done in an extremely quick flash, as the figures of the two men who executed the maneuvers stand center ring in the shadows. A brief strobe of light hits, revealing them for only mere seconds at a time. While the strobe hits, Bret Hart’s world famous guitar rift is heard while flashing, before we see words on the screen…

*SONS OF THE DUNGEON*
NEXT WEEK...


But yet again, this video package is cut and interrupted by two men we now recognize as Nick Nameth and Jack Hagar.

Nameth:
So the final ‘Sons’ of some dungeon in Nowhere, No-one Cares, Canada are debuting next week. Whaddya make of that, Hagar?

Hagar:
I think we need to keep an eye on them. An American Eagle eye, if you will, Nick.

Nameth:
That sounds like a great idea, Hagar. So go ahead and make your mark in AOW, ‘Sons’. Because we’ll be watching you. And maybe we’ll make our mark on you. The American way.

*AMERICAN MADE*
COMING TO AOW


**End Package**

**COMMERCIAL BREAK**


We return from the break to the sound of crickets chirping, a camera angle rising from the floor and working its way up. We’re brought to a scene that looks to be on the roof of a building, a gentle breeze going through the night sky, with the moon in beautiful view – completely full. As the camera pans to get a beautiful shot of the lunar spectacle, we hear a voice off screen start to speak to us…

???:
The moon. It watches us each and every day. Knows more about us than we do. It has vital information about the sun’s constant rises and downs. But no one stops to listen to the lonely, wise moon.

~The camera pans farther back, focusing off the moon, but keeping it in the shot. The focus now is on that of the man speaking, Christian Cage, who’s wearing street clothes and what looks like his old ‘Captain Charisma’ hood, but this time, instead of being completely flashy, it’s a shade of sleek black. His hood is up, staring at the moon as he speaks, his voice very soft, but commanding.

Christian Cage:
It stares down each and every day, taking notes on us, the sun, the stars. It knows so much more than we do. Yet all anyone can do is stare at the sun and say ‘what a pleasant day the sun’s brought us’. ‘The sun warms the crops. The sun makes the grass grow. The sun is the giver of life’. But the moon? All anyone can say about the moon is ‘oh, how beautiful it looks tonight’. It holds so much more value than the vain sun, but people only look at it in vanity.

~Christian turns towards the camera finally, his eyes still looking very much crazed from a few weeks ago

Christian Cage:
Just like people look at me and think ‘Christian is just jealous. He’s just jealous and crazy.’ Christian Cage’ll be the first person to admit that he may be losing his mind, but you people ignoring him and telling him constantly who he is and what’s going on with him solves nothing. You were all too busy staring at the sun that was Bobby Lashley. When in fact you should’ve listened to Christian Cage, like you need to listen to the moon. Until Christian Cage decided to solve that problem himself.
~The camera is inching closer to Christian’s now intense face, his voice getting harsher and more aggressive with each word

Christian Cage:
The moon never tries to step on anyone’s toes, just tries to get his message across the overshadowing rays of the sun. Christian Cage would have no more of that. Christian made sure you people took notice. He eclipsed the sun. To the point where it will never rise again in AOW. He was forced to so this because no one stopped to listen to Christian. You all just cast your judgmental gazes before opening your ears.

~The camera has almost completely come in for an extreme close-up on Christian, the moon fading from the image bit by bit

Christian Cage:
This world may physically revolve around the sun. But it is the moon that gives it true light. So how do you repay the moon for shedding his true light upon this? You suspend him. You remove him from your atmosphere. In doing so, you have put your entire roster and your entire audience in inevitable jeopardy. Because the light is no longer there to guide them through the thick of the dark.

~Christian’s stoic face ends that phrase twisted into a scowl that soon subsides into his emotionless stare

Christian Cage:
Christian tried to show you all the way. He tried to show you that there is a much bigger picture than you’re all realizing. And you rejected him when he tried to enlighten and save you. But unlike the sun…the moon shall rise again. I am Christian Cage. And I…am the man…on the moon…

~The camera view is locked in on Christian’s stoic, psychotic, yet calm stare, as he turns his head back towards the moon, the camera shot backing away and following him, putting its focus back on the full moon. The camera slowly zooms in on the moon as we fade away…


~Back at ringside…



Joey Styles:
Wow…um…a very strong message we seem to have received there from the suspended Christian Cage. Personally, I really don’t know what to say in regards to that man. He’s completely lost his mind, but maybe, just maybe, Christian did see something that none of us saw.

JBL:
Well he didn’t see himself gettin’ suspended, that’s fer sure.

Joey Styles:
That aside, John, even you have to feel sorry for the guy.

JBL:
But I don’t feel sorry for Christian, Joey. ‘matterfact – I’m proud of him. Not many people can say they’ve beaten Bobby Lashley so bad, he hasn’t so much moved a muscle since gettin’ those Con-Chair-Tos.


That grim message’s meaning will have to be absorbed amid a match, as “MASTERPIECE” begins to play, minus his WWE theatrics, as Chris Masters is a man on a mission tonight. Coming onto the stage with him is Ken Doane, to whom he gives a handshake and a head nod to before Doane heads back to the back. Master is going this mission alone, but against whom?

This is quickly answered when synthesizer keys strike the sound system, as the Hammerstein immediately recognizes this as “FINAL COUNTDOWN” by Europe, meaning this is the leitmotif for none other than AOW Cruiserweight Champion, Bryan Danielson. The crowd very much approves of Danielson, singing along his music’s chorus as he ascends to a top rope. Unfortunately for Danielson, his opponent doesn’t share his enthusiasm, as Masters reaches up and grabs Danielson by the tights off the top rope, forcing Danielson to hit the mat hard.

MATCH 2
AOW Cruiserweight Champion Bryan Danielson v. Chris Masters


Masters takes the downed Danielson and starts pummeling him with hard right hands before starting to stomp on him to keep him down. After the boots are lain into several times, Masters actually backs away and extends his arms, looking for Danielson to get to his feet. As Danielson does indeed stand up, he’s immediately caught from behind by The Masterlock! Masterlock! But before he can lock it in properly, Danielson forces his momentum forward, causing Masters to roll over his shoulder and across the ring. Danielson tries to get back to his feet and recover a little bit, but as he tries to knock those cobwebs out, Masters comes charging at him with hopes of a clothesline, but Danielson quickly grapples the arm and turns it…into the LeBell Lock! But Danielson doesn’t have it locked in completely either, allowing Masters to squiggle away.

Both men now appear somewhat stalemated, but after a moment of breather, Masters steps center ring and offers the smaller, weaker Danielson a strength test. Danielson stares at him for a second, wondering whether to accept the bait, but does anyway, locking fingers with Masters with one arm before doing it yet again with the other arm. Masters, predictably, starts overwhelming the Cruiserweight Champion before using his strength to hoist him into a military press, showing off his strength before flipping Danielson all the way over, Danielson selling very much. Masters takes the spine-gripping Danielson by the skull and bashes it into a corner before whipping him hard into the opposite corner and meeting him with a strongman stinger splash on the other side, forcing Danielson to collapse on the canvas. Masters covers – 1…2…NO! Danielson won’t go down.

Masters pulls Danielson to his feet but Danielson shows resiliency by nailing several kicks to Masters’ midsection, getting him room to run into the ropes. On the rebound, Danielson dodges a boot attempt and rebounds again, looking for something, but Masters catches him in a nasty sitout spinebuster!!! Another cover from Masters – 1…2…3-NO!! Danielson won’t be powered down! Masters’ frustration is only added to at this point, taking his cruiserweight opponent and bringing him into a bearhug, squeezing the life out of Danielson. The crowd starts getting into Danielson, prompting him to break the hold that’s continuing to wear down his spine. As the crowd starts their rhythmic clapping, Danielson starts delivering repeat elbow shots to Masters’ skull, breaking the hold. Danielson attempts to gain a head of steam, but Masters lets loose with a Polish hammer, but Danielson ducks under it and rebounds, shooting back with a dropkick-style knee to the face of Masters!!! Danielson is able to get back to his feet and quickly scale to the top rope, downing Masters yet again with a flying front dropkick from the top rope!! Danielson with a high-octane cover – 1…2…3-NO!! Masters has some fight in him!

Danielson gets to his feet, his back still ailing from its punishment earlier, and starts to size Masters up. As Masters gets back to a vertical base, Danielson swings with the roundhouse, but Masters ducks and winds up behind him, tries to execute a backdrop, but Danielson backflips out of it, gripping Masters around the waist and nails a flawless German suplex on the big man! Danielson doesn’t keep the bridge, however, unable to keep the hold on the bigger man and just covers him – 1…2…the crowd’s buzzing for some reason…Danielson steps off…? Rushing down the ramp it appears to be…Gregory Helms!! Helms is still here! Danielson is completely distracted by the man he defeated for the title two weeks ago, staring him down from the ring. Helms just stares up from the floor with confident poise, with a sinister little grin on his face. His back turned to Masters, Danielson soon finds himself in the Masterlock, this time fully locked in and Masters swinging him around like a rag doll. After a moment or so, Danielson has almost completely faded, his body motionless, but Masters keeping the hold in. The referee has no choice but to stop the match.

Winner: Chris Masters at (7:11)

Masters won’t let go of his hold, even at the referee’s admonishing. Outside the ring, Helms roams over to the timekeeper’s table and grabs the AOW Cruiserweight title and a microphone, sliding into the ring with both objects. Helms takes the mike and gets into the face of the already faded Danielson, who’s still trapped in the Masterlock, completely defenseless.


Gregory Helms:
Y’see Danielson, people always learn th’ truth. That goof of a General Manager of ours didn’t believe me, so I showed my proof to Paul Heyman that I was robbed of my Cruiserweight Championship and he accepted my proposal of a rematch
!
~A good bit of heat for this one

Gregory Helms:
In two weeks, on the final night that Oblivion goes for an hour, you an’ me are goin’ at it for this title. And I will show you exactly why Gregory Helms is the ‘Best in the World’…not you!


With that, Helms throws down the mike, grips the title in both hands, and bashes it against the face of the defenseless Danielson!! Masters has a smile at the damage he’s indadvertedly assisted in, but Helms has a very angry look in his eye when he veers close to the now downed body of Danielson, screaming at him ‘Y’see that? Huh? This is mine! I was robbed, so I’m takin’ it back!”. Helms then walks out of the ring, taking the physical championship belt with him.

Joey Styles:
What the - …? Where the hell is Gregory Helms taking that title with him?

JBL:
I love it! He should’a been doin’ this from th’ beginnin’! He should be the rightful Cruiserweight Champion an’ not some accountant in wrestlin’ boots!

Joey Styles:
Now what’re you on about, Bradshaw?

JBL:
All I’m sayin’ is it’s about damn time someone else noticed that this kid is the best in the world and that he was clearly robbed two weeks ago. Good on Paul Heyman t’finally do somethin’ right for this company.

Joey Styles:
Well what about Chris Masters? You think he made the impact he had hoped for?

JBL:
As happy I am about Gregory Helms, yes, Chris Masters definitely made an impact throwin’ that nobody champion around an’ forcin’ him to submit to that Masterlock. That’s just raw, unbridled power Bryan Danielson can only dream he can have.

Joey Styles:
Are you kiddin’ me, Bradshaw? Did you not see what I saw? I saw a guy fight tooth and nail with a guy who was stronger than him, but he took him to the limit and even had him in his own submission hold at one point, the LeBell Lock, and Masters had to squirm away like a cockroach!

JBL:
How many times do I have t’ tell you, Joey? This is AOW, Art of War Wrestling. It’s all about th’ wins and loss column here, son. War is about whether you won or lost, not whether you made a good showin’. An’ that Chris Masters has power and even more power t’ keep makin’ impacts.

Joey Styles:
Well, ladies and gentlemen, on that note of ‘power’, we still have our main event on the horizon where it may indeed be a power struggle – Rob Van Dam has chosen Samoa Joe as his partner to take on the team of Finlay and Chris Jericho, in a match that was set up by the power invested in Van Dam himself! Will any of these rivals be able to control themselves? That’s right after the break!

**Video Package**

We see the image of a book, made of papyrus or some sort of medieval material, but it is written in English. We then hear a narrator; the same narrator from the Supershow, that being of a wise, old, but strong man. Oriental strings are again playing in the background.


Narrator:
In the inception of a war, one must first make their cautious and calculated preparations.

A wind blows by the book, forcing it open to a page headlined “Chapter 1: Initial Estimations”

Narrator:
But a great strategist knows when the winds of change blow, one must adjust and prepare for the war ahead…


The camera view fades in to the page, highlighting the phrase “Prepare and you shall succeed. Do not and you shall be destroyed…”

Narrator:
So on October Thirty-First, a long Halloween, the preparations are over and it is time for the true fight to begin…


The wind blows once again, sending pages flipping towards a new page, headlined “Chapter 2: Waging War”

Narrator:
Now is the time to move to the next chapter. Now is time for the art to be perfected. Now is the time for WAR.


The oriental strings suddenly echo into a heavy metal guitar rift, which is followed quickly by a rapid reel of AOW wrestlers flashing, a flurry of punches and kicks coming towards the screen, before a graphic of final, emphatic words busts onto the screen –

AOW WEDNESDAY NIGHT OBLIVION EXTENDS TO 90 MINUTES
October 31st
Until the next chapter…
**COMMERCIAL BREAK**

~Backstage now, where Mike “The Miz” Mizanin is standing by with a mike in the Green Zone…

The Miz:
The Miz here, once again, doing Torrie Wilson’s pathetic little job for her, but then again, what can women do for themselves, amirite?

~Miz puts his arm around the shoulder of who appears to one of his guests at this time in Low Ki. Opposite Ki is his tag team partner, Jack Evans, who has a smile on his face looking at Low Ki’s completely emotionless and intense stare at a ‘can I get a laugh’ Miz face

The Miz:
Okay…uh…so guys, you’ve recently taken the AOW tag team division by storm with your very uh…interesting team dynamics as “Low Jack”. So who exactly is the head honcho of this team? Is it you, Low Ki?

~Miz puts the mike to Low Ki, who just stares back at him with the same intense stare

The Miz:
Okay, well, maybe you Jack Evans?


Jack Evans: (Gives himself a beat, rapping)
Well y’see Miz dawg, we know what we’re doin’, son
So trust me when I say both of us are number one
Ki’s a little serious, and I’m a little loose
We may be apples and oranges, but united, we got the juice
We know that separate we got our appeal
But we’re Low Jack, future champs, and together we’re for real!

~Crowd gives a nice reaction to that, as Ki, still as serious as ever, offers a fist that Evans casually bumps with his own fist. Crowd chuckles a bit at that. Both Evans and Ki quickly cross their arms (~WITH AUTHORITY!), leaving Miz dumbfounded.

The Miz:
Wait…so one of you doesn’t talk at all and the other talks like Dr. Seuss…?

~Before either of them can respond, we hear a voice off-screen, getting the attention of all three men, also prompting Ki to move over to the same side as Evans.

???

Yo, that was actually pretty rad, Jack.

~The voice enters the frame, being that of Paul London, accompanied by Brian Kendrick. They both seem to have been legitimately entertained by that jingle.

Paul London
:
That really was pretty sweet, but there’s one small problem with it.

Brian Kendrick:
Yeah, with all due respect guys, we think we deserve another shot at those tag team championships.

Jack Evans:
(Not rapping)
You guys had an absolutely sick Ladder match with the World’s Greatest Tag Team, I’m not gonna lie. But uh…we think we’re next in line.
~Slight awkward tense silence, broken by a person no one expected…

Low Ki:
Then it’s a match. Low Jack….London and Kendrick. Let our actions decide who gets that title shot for us.

~”The Warrior” finally speaks up! But of course, it's to propose a fight...

Paul London
:
Make it in two weeks…and you got it.

~The crowd gives a very generous pop to both teams shaking hands and accepting a match in two weeks-time. Unfortunately, this is also interrupted by another duo, who just walk into the frame, much to the chagrin on The Miz. These men are The Mercenaries, Burchill and Albright.

Paul Burchill:
I know good and well you blokes weren’t here making arrangements to see who gets that tag team championship title shot, were you? See, we’ve just gotten word that our top client, Mr. Hassan, has already secured us a match with the World’s Greatest Tag Team at World Ablaze. Your little squabble here is null, void, and useless.

Paul London:
That can’t be true.

Paul Burchill:
For sure, mate. If you play the game the right way, you’ll always win. And we’ve already won.

Jack Evans:
Oh yeah? Guess you guys’ll be disappointed in two weeks then, won’t you?

~At this point, The Hooliganz and Low Jack close the space between them and the center-screen Mercenaries, staring them down. Burchill and Albright laugh.

Burchill:
Go ahead. Put on your little show together in two weeks. We’ll be glad to watch you four kill each other for nothing.

~The Mercenaries walk off, leaving the other four men in a bit of a bitter disposition.


~Back at ringside…


“LAMBEG” begins to play, as the man who loves to fight, Finlay, makes his way to the ring to a good bit of heat, shillelagh in hand. He’s got a sour look on his face, but most people have just accepted that he looks that angry all the time. Tonight is no different, although there’s an extra heir of toughness in his walk after already beating down Joe tonight.

“BREAK DOWN THE WALLS” soon follows, as AOW Champion Chris Jericho comes down to the ring without his gargantuan bodyguard, but still with the same rain of heat. Jericho’s got his holier-than-thou expression and walk in full stroke here tonight, wanting absolutely no part of either Van Dam or Joe. And judging from his actions earlier in the program, one wonders where his attention really is…?

His attention had better be on his monster of a foe tonight in Samoa Joe, who comes down the ramp to his upbeat leitmotif “MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT”. Joe shows the intensity he’s always shown here in AOW on his way down the ramp, although he stops and mouths some words when he stops at the base of the ramp, pointing towards Finlay as the chorus of the song tells us “I’m gonna knock you out!”.

“WALK” hits the stage now, as Rob Van Dam brings the Hammerstein to its feet yet again. Van Dam’s thumbs electrify the arena upon his introduction, As when he approaches the base of the ramp, he and Joe seem to have a plan going, for as soon as they get even at the ramp, they nod towards each other and slide into the ring simultaneously, and immediately burst towards both Jericho and Finlay with hard fists, prompting an all-out brawl!!!

MAIN EVENT
AOW Champion Chris Jericho & Finlay v. Rob Van Dam & Samoa Joe


The match can’t even begin properly, as Van Dam is all over Jericho and Joe is all over Finlay. The referee has absolutely no control over what the hell is going on, with a little bit of clarity restoring once RVD spins and nails a spinning crescent kick to Jericho that sends the AOW Champion toppling over the top rope and to the floor! Finlay and Joe have one of their by-now trademark AOW brawls, going back and forth with hard blows until Joe backs Finlay into a corner and keeps pummeling him, hard kick to the gut after kick to the gut. Finlay eventually falls down onto the lower level of the turnbuckle, forcing the referee to get into the middle of the brawl to stop it and just begin the actual match. The crowd is deafly hot at this point, but as soon as the referee pulls Joe back into what looks to be his corner, Finlay shoots up and out and starts his own pummeling on Joe!! Van Dam looks to help and separate the two along with the ref, but he’s stopped when Jericho pulls the very referee under the bottom rope and onto the floor!

Jericho then climbs into the ring and yanks off RVD, prompting yet another brawl with him! The match hasn’t even started yet and now it can’t thanks to Jericho, who promptly takes Van Dam and bounces his head off a corner, going outside again. He ventures over to the timekeeper’s table to grab hold of the ring bell. Jericho, who seems to actually want to fight tonight, wrestles it away from the timekeeper, rolling into the ring and awaiting Van Dam’s recuperation. Beside him, Finlay is bashing away at Joe before roaming away himself and taking his shillelagh in hand. Both Jericho and Finlay await the recovery of their respective rivals, with Joe getting up first, Finlay going for the shillelagh shot…NO!! Joe catches it and pushes Finlay over to the ropes, clotheslining clean over them. While that happens Jericho bursts towards Van Dam with the ring bell…NOBODY HOME!! Jericho goes crashing with the bell chest-first into a corner, but as he gets set to turn around again, Van Dam leaps with the kick…Jericho bails!! Dodges the Van Daminator!! Both heels are venturing outside the ring now, referee still incapacitated when suddenly, we hear “WRECK” hit the speakers, as Mick Foley makes his third appearance of the night, this time actually coming out to the entrance stage, microphone in hand.


Mick Foley:
As much as I enjoy you gentlemen’s…how should I say…‘hardcore’ behavior towards each other, I can’t have you beating the hell out of each other and no main event.

~Crowd pops on the ‘hardcore’ line, but is disappointed on the last part

Mick Foley:
So instead, I’m just gonna make our main event all of you beating the hell out of each other!

~A nice pop, with the look on Jericho’s face going from pissed to confused to straight frightened

Mick Foley:
There’s no need to tag in and out, gentlemen. Because this main event is now a NO DISQUALIFICATION TAG TEAM MATCH!!


No sooner do those words leave Foley’s lips, the crowd pops immensely, as both Van Dam and Joe shoot through the ropes with suicidas onto Jericho and Finlay!!

Joey Styles:
It looks like we’ve got a whole new main event to work with here! No Disqualifications, everything’s legal!

JBL:
The hell is wrong with Mick Foley? That crazy bastard’s gonna make’em kill each other!

Joey Styles:
We may have to wait and see what the death toll may be in just a few moments! We’ll be back!

**COMMERCIAL BREAK**

MAIN EVENT
*NO DISQUALIFICATIONS*
AOW Champion Chris Jericho & Finlay v. Rob Van Dam & Samoa Joe


Upon our return from the break, we have a new referee, who’s in the ring keeping tabs on who is brawling in the ring, which right now, is RVD trying to fend off both Jericho and Finlay. We get a look at what occurred during the break, with Joe missing an Ole Kick and taking himself out, getting Jericho and Finlay to double team the #1 Contender in Van Dam. They pound on him a bit before they both whip him hard into a corner, causing him to fall. Jericho steps aside and produces a ‘be my guest’ gesture towards Finlay, prompting the Fighting Irishman to make his way towards Van Dam and beat the tar out of him in the corner. He then invites Jericho to join him for something, prompting both men to hoist Van Dam on the top rope, looking to go for a potential double superplex. Both men set up for it, but they’re stopped when Samoa Joe bursts back into the ring, clubbing both men on the spine before tossing Jericho over to the rope and bringing Finlay down with a nasty powerbomb!

But Joe doesn’t stop there. Once he’s got Finlay in the prone powerbombed position, he instantly turns it into a half Boston crab! Finlay is crawling away, knowing his ring presence, but Joe soon turns into an STF!! Finlay now can’t move with the weight of Joe on his back!! With what could be the end, Chris Jericho makes the sudden save, flying back into the ring, steel chair to the spine of Joe!! Joe has no choice but to release the hold, but Jericho seeks to add even more injury, lifting the chair for another round…VAN DAM SIDE KICK FROM OFF THE TOP ROPE, SHOVING THE CHAIR IN JERICHO’S FACE!!! AN IMPROMPTU VAN DAMINATOR!!! Jericho goes down hard, with Van Dam throwing himself on top of Jericho – 1…2…3…NO!!! Finlay with the save!! The Fighting Irishman was down, but not out of it, throwing his weight behind a push and knocks RVD off the body of his tag team partner!!

RVD rolls to his feet, Finlay now as an acceptable target. He roams over to the man who loves to fight, hitting him with hard hands before beginning a flurry of educated kicks, completed by what looks like a step-up enzeguiri, but Finlay dodges the move only to get hit by a reverse enzeguri from Van Dam! Finlay is still obviously rocked from the powerbomb moments before by Joe, but now is quite possibly out of it now, with Van Dam looking to venture to the top rope, perhaps looking for a finishing Five Star Frog Splash. The crowd is all on its feet, looking for what might be the finish…NO!!! Somehow, Finlay wasn’t as dead as he lead on to be, aware enough to grab his shillelagh and bash RVD right in the thigh with it in a last ditch effort! Van Dam falls and leans off of the top rope, where Finlay’s clutches are still waiting, causing him to nail an elevated DDT, Van Dam dangling from the top!!! Finlay with a desperate cover for his team – 1…2…3…NO!!! VAN DAM KICKS OUT!!! HE KICKS OUT!!!

Finlay has no time to be angry over what might have been, as right when he gets to his feet, he’s immediately taken off of them when Samoa Joe hits him from behind with a half-nelson suplex!! Finlay, shillelagh and all, go flying halfway across the ring until his momentum rolls him out of it. Joe is pumped to the brim now, exalting in sheer intensity. As he turns to look to where Jericho rolled out of the ring, he sees the Worthy Champion trying to sneak his way back in, but he’s having none of it, jumping towards Jericho and making him back away in cowardice. As Jericho does this, Joe taunts and spins, setting up for his Elbow Suicida…JERICHO SIDESTEPS THE MOVE, WHILE SIMULTANIOUSLY BASHING THE BY-FLYING JOE IN THE HEAD WITH THE AOW CHAMPIONSHIP BELT!!!! In one smooth motion, Joe misses, gets clocked in the head by gold, and becomes a missile into the announce table.

With the program going into overtime, Jericho looks to the ring now, where Van Dam is still not completely in things. Jericho takes this chance to roll into the ring, his championship belt thrown into a corner. He jumps on the still downed Van Dam…WALLS OF JERICHO!! Jericho’s got the man he’ll be facing in just over a month in his patented submission maneuver!! The crowd is all over this right now, prompting Van Dam to get out of the move! The ref is constantly taking peeks at Van Dam, asking him repeatedly if he wants to give up and end it now, but RVD refuses. Van Dam is gritting his teeth, refusing to give Jericho the satisfaction of letting him submit to him. Van Dam finally finds the strength to push himself up, sustaining himself on his palms and sheer guile, before finding a way to roll all the way over, putting him on top of Jericho in a tight surprise roll-up – 1…2…3…NO!!!

Jericho flies out of the grip and rushes to his feet, but upon rushing back at Van Dam, he finds that he too is on his feet and clocks Jericho in the skull with a roundhouse kick!! This causes Jericho to drop belly down near some ropes, prompting Van Dam to look for Rolling Thunder…NO!! Jericho bails out of the ring, grabbing his AOW Championship on the way out. He starts up the ramp, when he sees that Mick Foley hasn’t moved a muscle since the beginning of the match and is still on top of the entrance ramp. As Jericho begins to shout at Foley from the ring, the crowd suddenly reacts, as Joe and Finlay start brawling outside the ring yet again, only for Finlay to come out on top this time after clocking the ring bell over Joe’s skull!!! Joe’s got an injured knee, and now after so many hits to the head, might have a serious concussion! Joe falls, leaving Finlay to go in after Van Dam, who’s distracted by Jericho’s arguing with Foley. As Van Dam turns around, Finlay captures him in the Celtic Cross…NO!! Van Dam somehow escapes that as well, driving a knee into the side of Finlay’s head. As he drops off Finlay’s shoulders, he grabs one of Finlay’s legs before flipping over it with the step-over spinning wheel kick. Finlay finally goes down hard, leaving Van Dam to the top rope…FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH CONNECTING!! Jericho doesn’t seem to give a damn, simply staring at the ring from the outside in distain as the ref counts – 1…2…3….!!!

Winners: Rob Van Dam & Samoa Joe at (11:05) – total portion time: (16:20)

The crowd is going wild at this point, as Van Dam finally gets the upper hand after choosing to face Jericho in the same ring. Jericho is seething outside the ring, but Van Dam keeps his celebrating short, as he goes outside the ring to check on Joe, who’s just now rising to his feet. The crows applauses for this, as Van Dam raises both he and Joe’s hands, both men looking exhausted after a hard-fought, rough and tumble win. We hear what sounds like applause before Van Dam’s victory music is cut short in favor once again of Mick Foley
.

Mick Foley:
Congrats Rob, Joe. That was perhaps the most insane main event we’ve had here in AOW thus far!

~Cheap pop

Mick Foley:
But see…I’m just the kinda guy who looks to keep topping not only myself, but what can be done in that ring. But that doesn’t mean I need to get some business done. That’s why in two weeks, on the final one-hour edition of Wednesday Night Oblivion we’re gonna have the very first AOW Championship match contract signing for World Ablaze.

~RVD nods in agreement, while Jericho’s face looks just awful.

Mick Foley:
But as for topping myself and what can happen in that ring, I couldn’t help but notice that Joe, you and Finlay still have a great deal of bad blood between you. So that’s why next week, you two will end this spat in a match I’ve dubbed the ‘Art of the Knockout’ Match, or “A.O.KO.” if you will.

~A bit of buzz for intrigue, as the little Joe can comprehend is also curious

Mick Foley:
The rules are simple. You two will compete in a match with no pinfalls, no submissions. The only way to win is to knock your opponent around so much, they can’t answer a ten-count.

~The crowd pops for this, as these Last Man Standing rules seem to please everyone

Mick Foley:
However…and seeing as how if I keep letting you two beat the hell out of each other all over the arena, I might not have an arena left…the perk of the “A.O.K.O” match is that you have to knock your opponent out for that ten-count…INSIDE THAT FIFTEEN FOOT HIGH STEEL CAGE!!

~The crowd pops huge for the camera finally getting us to notice the steel cage that appears to have been hovering above the ring all night. The look on Joe’s face is one of smug, just at getting another chance at Finlay.

Joey Styles:
Oh my God!! Mick Foley, making some huge decisions tonight, capping it off with a contract signing AND next week, there will be an absolutely brutal debut of the Art of the Knockout match in AOW…Last Man Standing rules inside a steel cage!!

JBL:
That’s it. I’m done with this loony bastard. He’s really, really, honest and truly lost all his damn marbles. I swear to all that is holy, I will not call that damn “A.O.K.” whatever match next week. I do not endorse of this madness. This is a blemish on the beautiful face of professional wrestling, and its name is Mick Foley!

Joey Styles:
John, you can’t be serious?

JBL:
As much as I wanna see Joe an’ Finlay go at it one more time, I refuse to sit here an’ let this crazy drive this company into the ground!

Joey Styles:
Well, be any of that as it may, we’ve got an enormous match to headline an enormous show next week! And heck, the week after that too!! But you’ll have to tune in to catch all of it!! Good-night, all!

Another quick note - many apologies for this show being a whole week late. Had a week from hell and this week doesn't look much better, but felt like getting this up. University and and all that jazz. It got kinda hard for me to keep any thought really straight, which might explain why the main event is the way it is. That said, this show doesn't fell as good to me as the last one, and that one didn't feel that good at all. Anyway, hope you folks enjoy, and apologies for not returning some of those reviews
