FLORIDA CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING TV SPOILERS FROM TAMPA, FLORIDA
By Michael Spears on 2010-09-02 23:54:56
Dark Match:

Titus O’Neill, Conrad Tanner & ??? defeated Big E. Langston, Rhys Ali & Devin Allen when O’Neill pinned Ali. This match was fast-paced and action packed.

Episode #1:

Bo Rotundo pinned Shad Gaspard. There are not many good things to say about this match. Bo and Shad didn’t seem to click at all.

Wes Brisco pinned Jinder Mahal. This match was not very good either. FCW President Steve Keirn was observed yawning on multiple occasions while the match was going on. The finish was botched when head referee Justin King did not count Mahal’s shoulders to the mat because they were obviously off the mat.

FCW Queen of Florida AJ Lee pinned Jamie Keyes. This was a decent match and it look as though Keyes had injured her left triceps but she appeared ok later in the evening.

FCW Florida Tag Team Champions Derrick Bateman & Johnny Curtis beat the Dudebusters to retain the titles when Curtis pinned Trent Barreta. FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion Mason Ryan attacked Curtis & Bateman after the match, busting Bateman open in the process.

Episode #2:

Brodus Clay, Eli Cottonwood, and Jackson Andrews beat Lucky Cannon in a 3-on-1 handicap match when Clay pinned Cannon. This match was initially a one-on-one contest between Clay and Cannon, but Cottonwood and Andrew were added by Maxine who had grown tired of Lucky’s constant text messaging.

Richie Steamboat pinned Alex Riley. This was a pretty good match.

The Aksana Show featured FCW Florida Tag Team Champions Derrick Bateman & Johnny Curtis and it was announced that Bateman would have a non-title match later in the show against FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion Mason Ryan as payback for the attack during the previous episode.

Los Aviadores beat Husky Harris and Percy Watson when Epico pinned Watson. This match ended when Percy went to tag in Husky but instead got punched in the face, allowing Epico to hit a swanton bomb for the pinfall.

Derrick Bateman pinned FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion Mason Ryan in a non-title match after Ryan was distracted by Johnny Curtis. Bateman worked really hard in this match, but Ryan’s limitations prevented this match from being anything better than ok.

Episode #3:

Eli Cottonwood & Jackson Andrews beat Xavier Woods & Bobby Dutch when Andrews pinned Dutch. This match was rather slow with the only thing watchable was Woods’ bumping for the big men.

FCW Florida Divas Champion Naomi Night pinned FCW Queen of Florida AJ Lee in a Lumberjill Match. The lumberjills were Jamie Keyes, Wild Thing Ricki Vaughn, Aksana and Victoria Crawford’s (Alicia Fox) sister. Night has improved tremendously over the past few months.

Wes Brisco pinned Jinder Mahal to win a triple threat match that included Jacob Novak. This match was terrible. Brisco won using the same finish WWE did at Survivor Series 1996 when Steve Austin had Bret Hart in a sleeper and Bret kicked off the turnbuckle and landed on Austin with Austin’s shoulders on the mat for the three count.

Donny Marlow pinned Michael McGillicutty with a back slide. This match wasn’t bad but the crowd was still dead from the triple threat match. McGillicutty has one hell of a dropkick.


FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion Mason Ryan pinned Johnny Curtis to retain the title. While the ref was knocked out, Curtis hit his finishing top-rope leg drop but no one was there to count the fall. Announcer Byron Saxton then came down the ring and hit Curtis while clenching a roll of quarters. The ref was revived and Ryan secured the pinfall.

Notes:

Byron Saxton & Abraham Washington did the announcing.

The crowd was nowhere near as full as it was while Florida’s students were on their summer break.

Road Warrior Animal signed autographs and posed for pictures with fans prior to the event.

So.. think this means Hennig and Riley are in the dog house, or they're having them job to the younger guys because they're getting called up to the main roster? Both Riley and Hennig have had MUCH bigger roles in FCW prior to this. In almost every show. I don't think Riley's been in only one show in a triple TV taping since early 2009. Maybe 2008.

Just last week Riley beat Hennig and Cannon in a triple threat match, now he's losing to Steamboat? And they're both only in ONE episode out of the 3? That's straight up weird yo!

FCW wins & loss records don't matter. They are there to train. Hell! Not even heels and faces matter. Husky was teamed with Percy.

Riley lost to Richie Steamboat who probably needed the win more than him. Not to mention Steamboat is the better wrestler regardless.

Even the Nexus have gone down to FCW and jobbed occasionally.

I don't know if they're getting buried, or getting ready to move to the Main Roster.

After what happened on NXT, I think that they should spend at least another 6 months to a year down there at FCW.

They're clearly not ready, IMO. Riley showed that he doesn't have any awareness and Hennig is just... there.

I think Riley could use some more training and a new gimmick. Hennig seems like he'd be better suited in a tag-team.

If he had to go out there every night on Raw or Smackdown making the kind of promos he made on Tuesday, people would laugh in his face. He should go back to Florida, wait for the Dibiase kid to heal up to team with him, or form a team with Windham Rotunda aka Husky Harris.

I don't think he's ready to be a single's star and the WWE desperately needs more Tag-Teams.

"the King is dead ... Long live the King"

people went from "Riley is the best thing to happen to WWE" to "What a complete loser who botches all the time" in a jiffy .... calm down everyone. He is not gonna get buried for one stupid outing and he is not gonna get the WHC in a fortnight. He is just gonna climb his way in the WWE and in the meantime he can put over someone else in FCW.

Riley,Hennig and Husky could definitely do something in the main roster. Maybe not as fast as their marks hoped for.

Question answered.

Every wrestler, before getting called up, has to give some credit to an FCW'er sticking around. It only makes sense and it's good business.

Otherwise all the best guys leave and the FCW audience is made to think that the only people left all suck.

This. Riley & Hennig aren't in the dog house at all (well Riley might after the Watson stupidity). They'll just be giving the rub to they guy who are left in FCW, no point 'burying' the FCW roster in favor of guys who are leaving.
