An updated opening montage this week with Majors Brothers, Daniel Rodimer, Jake Hager and Shantelle all added to the mix.
Right to the stand up segment with Bill DeMott and Nigel Sherrod. DeMott posed the question: was the number one contender for the
DSW heavyweight title determined in the match, or was it determined by DSW General Manager Krissy Vaine?
Cut to the finish of the number one contenderâ€™s match between Derrick Niekirk and Rough House Oâ€™Reilly. After destroying Oâ
€™Reillyâ€™s leg throughout the match, Neikirk went for a figure four and Oâ€™Reilly caught him with a small package for the three
count. After the match, Neikirk used the post and the ringsteps to do further damage to Oâ€™Reillyâ€™s knee. â€œAll Neikirk wanted
was for Oâ€™Reilly to walk away. Now, Oâ€™Reilly wonâ€™t be able to walk at all,â€� said DeMott.
Sherrod and DeMott talked about the Majors Brothers successful defense of the DSW tag titles against Urban Assault in last weekâ€™s
main event. DeMott said it was the first time G-Rilla made his presence felt on as part of UA.
Cut to the aftermatch of the Majors Brothers victory. G-Rilla laid both Majors out with the ICU. Perez hit a spiral slam on Brian that Sherrod
called the Catatonic (oops).
(1) Shantelle pinned Angel Williams at 4:52 with an assist from Tracy Taylor
â€œQueen Divaâ€� Williams made her grand entrance. Taylor came to ringside to second Shantelle, and Vaine ventured out to the
entrance ramp to take notes. DeMott said DSW had the most beautiful Divas in Sports Entertainment. Shantelle took control of the arm,
showing her athleticism with a cartwheel into an armdrag. Williams used a drop toehold to send Shantelle face-first into the mat.
Williams abused Shantelle by pulling the hair. Williams hit a low dropkick and hooked the leg for a two count. Williams bodyslammed
Shantelle and kicked at Tracy. Williams dropped an elbow for a near fall. Williams pounded away from the mount. Williams applied a
modified camel clutch. Sherrod said Williamsâ€™ accusations of X-rated activity between Vaine and Assassin were ridiculous. Shantelle
made the comeback with a pair of lariats. Shantelle hit a powerslam for a near fall. Shantelle whipped Williams into the corner and
charged. Williams stepped aside. Shantelle went to the apron. Williams cracked her had across the face. When Williams tried to suplex
Shantelle back to the inside, Tracy tripped Williams up and held her foot while Rob Russo made the three count.
Neikirk had a talk with his former partner Mike Knox. Neikirk informed Knox that it was Oâ€™Reilly that threw the knuckles into the ring
during their lumberjack match. Knox said Neikirk was lying. He said Oâ€™Reilly wouldnâ€™t do that because they were friends. Niekirk
explained that Oâ€™Reilly was motivated by a desire to keep the DSW title, and Neikirk knew he could hold it over him. Knox said Neikirk
was a liar before, and he was lying now. Neikirk told Knox that Oâ€™Reilly had admitted it and advised Knox to ask Oâ€™Reilly himself.
Knox said he would do just that.
They ran the same spot with Nick Patrick and Theodore R. Long trying to drum up house show business (DSW is yet to run a house
show other than the three Six Flags events this summer) and plugging the training school.
Knox confronted Oâ€™Reilly with Neikirkâ€™s allegation of wrongdoing. Knox said he was still suffering the effects of the knucks. Oâ
€™Reilly slumped onto a bench with a pained expression on his face. Knox pulled him up by the lapels of his ring jacket. Knox
demanded an answer. Oâ€™Reilly was nearly bursting with emotion. Oâ€™Reilly said he was sorry. Knox blasted him with a wicked
slap across the face. Oâ€™Reilly took it. â€œYou were my friend,â€� said Knox and whacked him again.
Oâ€™Reilly flared up and went nose-to-nose with Knox. â€œThatâ€™s two times. I told you I was sorry. I didnâ€™t mean it. I made a
mistake. You make mistakes. We all make mistakes. But let me tell you something. Donâ€™t you ever, EVER, slap me again. You got
that?â€� Knox said they had been friends, and he couldnâ€™t let it stand.
(2) Bradley Jay pinned Rough House Oâ€™Reilly with an assist from Mike Knox to retain the DSW Heavyweight Title (7:46)
Oâ€™Reilly was still smarting from the slaps as he entered the ring. Oâ€™Reilly got off to a fast start. Jay bailed out. Oâ€™Reilly went
after him. Jay tried to drop an elbow to cut off Oâ€™Reillyâ€™s reentry. Oâ€™Reilly was wise to it. Oâ€™Reilly pulled Jay out and lit him
up. Jay reversed a whip and sent Oâ€™Reilly flying into the steel steps. Oâ€™Reilly struggled into the ring. Jay was all over Oâ€™Reillyâ
€™s knee, the same knee that Neikirk worked over last week.
DeMott and Sherrod got into heated debate about Oâ€™Reillyâ€™s actions. DeMott said Oâ€™Reilly had a guilty conscious, but this
wasnâ€™t pee wee football and he shouldnâ€™t be apologizing for damaging a manâ€™s career, especially when the evidence was
unclear. Sherrod defended Oâ€™Reilly and said the fans understood the apology. He was amazed that DeMott didnâ€™t get it. DeMott
said the danger for Jay was getting caught up in the distraction.
The fans chanted Oâ€™Reillyâ€™s name. Jay wrapped Oâ€™Reillyâ€™s knee around the ringpost. Oâ€™Reilly fought off a
kneebreaker and pulled himself up in the corner. Oâ€™Reilly made his comeback. He decked Jay with a pair of haymakers. Neikirk
came to ringside. As Oâ€™Reilly started to go for the Roughshot, Neikirk jumped up on the apron. Knox came out and blasted Neikirk,
knocking him to the floor. While Scrappy McGowan was busy with all that, Knox tossed brass knucks in to Jay. The champ put Oâ
€™Reillyâ€™s lights out for the 1-2-3. They cut to tight shots of Oâ€™Reilly (laid out), Neikirk (massaging his jaw), Knox (standing on the
ramp) and Jay (clutching the title belt). DeMott said Pandoraâ€™s box had been opened in the Deep South Arena.
The Oâ€™Reilly/Neikirk saga grew more complex with the involvement of Knox. The vignettes had a certain simple, raw power about
them. Damn, did Knox ever slap the #### out of Oâ€™Reilly. The match was mostly just a set up for the big finish. Jay displayed his
usual sound ring psychology by working the vulnerable body part...The power struggle between Vaine and Williams also took an
interesting turn. Williams/Shantelle was a decent match. Shantelle has strong underdog babyface appeal, and Williams is the bitch from
hellâ€¦ Williamsâ€™ is looking super lean these daysâ€¦With the glasses and the notepad, Vaine reminded me of Alexandra York from
back in the dayâ€¦DeMott said a match featuring G-Rilla (beating Francisco Ciatso) would air but it never happened. Other matches that
that didnâ€™t make the show due to the constraints of the 30 minute format: Montel Vontavious Porter over Kofi Nahaje Kingston and
Mike Taylor (with Tracy) defeated David Heath by DQ.
