The return to a full hour of Deep South Wrestling opened with Vito leaving his position in the broadcast booth to stop David Heath from
doing further damage to Heath Miller.
Cut to the standup with the DSW announce team of Nigel Sherrod and Bill DeMott. Sherrod said Vito would meet Heath in a singles
match on this weekâ€™s show.
Cut to action from last weekâ€™s main event, Mike Knox & Bradley Jay versus Derrick Neikirk & Ryan Oâ€™Reilly. Knox was doing some
major house cleaning when his partner, the reigning DSW Heavyweight Champion, scooped up the belt and abandoned ship. Neikirk
capitalized on the distraction.
Sherrod said Knox was able to overcome adversity to win the match. DeMott mentioned the unending tag team turmoil between the
Gymini, Urban Assault and the Majors Brothers. Sherrod said they were going to air the footage that Bradley Jay didnâ€™t want the
viewers to see.
The finish of Jay vs. Micah Taylor aired (a non-title non-televised match from 11/9/06). Ron Simmons was virtually unintelligible on
commentary. Jay charged. Taylor jumped to a sitting position on the middle rope. Jay ate the turnbuckle. Taylor rolled Jay up for the upset
The introduction of Theodore R. Long, the General Manager of Smackdown, received a rousing ovation. Long joined Sherrod and DeMott
on commentary for the opening match.
Luscious was backstage with Vito. Vito said that last week he was upset at by seeing a veteran like Heath taking liberties with a
youngster just trying to make it in the business. Vito said Heath was a bully and he was going to kick Heathâ€™s face in. Vito said Heath
was going to be humiliated by the toughest man to ever wear a dress.
Vito entered the ring. The crowd was into him.
Rebecca DiPietro was backstage with Heath. DiPietro said it looked like Vito got what he wanted. Heath told DiPietro that she didnâ€™t
belong in the business and she should be home washing his sheets. DiPietro ran off. Heath called Vito â€œthe Uncle Festus wannabe.â
€� Heath said he was going to wrap the dress around Vitoâ€™s throat, throw him over the top rope and choke him out until the lights
went out in his head. â€œI despise you and Iâ€™m gonna destroy you, because you make me sick, you freak. Stay outta my business.â
(1) Vito pinned David Heath at 5:43
Crowd chanted Vitoâ€™s name. Long said Heath was an old school veteran with a storied past. Vito shook his dress at Heath, who
ducked under the ropes. Vito pulled the dress down to expose his chest. Heath backed off with a look of disgust. But when Vito turned his
head, Heath was all over him. Heath tried to make good on his vow to choke Vito out. The big problem for Heath was that reacted to the
sight of Vitoâ€™s thong, like a vampire reacts to sunlight, so he wouldnâ€™t go for covers unless he first covered Vito up. Heath
dropped Vitoâ€™s throat across the top rope. Heath hit a sweet corkscrew elbow drop for a near fall. Heath Vito fought out of Heathâ€™s
facelock. They traded. Vito rattled Heathâ€™s cranium with rapid fire forearms and sprung off the ropes with a flying lariat. Vito was
lighting Heath up. Vito did a little dance and hit a legdrop for a two count. Heath stopped Vito in his tracks with a thumb to the eye. Heath
hit a southpaw short arm clothesline for a near fall. Vito fired back. Vito mounted the ropes and started to rain down punches. Heath
hoisted Vito into the air. Vito responded by putting the dress over Heathâ€™s head and smothering him for the three count.
Cut to the office of DSW GM Krissy Vaine. Vaine apologized for the behavior of Angel Williams on last weekâ€™s show. Vaine claimed
that she had done everything in he power to help Williamsâ€™ sagging career, adding â€œAnd thatâ€™s not all thatâ€™s sagging.â€�
Vaine said Williams losing streak wasnâ€™t her fault and until Williams regained her sanity, she was ordered to stay out Vaineâ€™s
Luscious stopped Dan Rodimer on his way to the ring with the ultra hot Brooke Adams. Luscious wanted to know Rodimerâ€™s
thoughts on his match. Rodimer was only interested in what Luscious thought about him. Rodimer asked Luscious if she wanted to
touch â€œThe Big Deal.â€� (Adams appeared to enjoy doing just that). Luscious terminated the interview.
(2) Dan Rodimer (with Brooke Adams) pinned Johnny Curtis at 3:03 with the Dealmaker
Rodimer stalked his nervous prey. Rodimer blocked a single leg and pounded Curtis on the back. Rodimer unleashed a barrage of kicks
and strangled Curtis in the corner. Curtis missed bigtime on a twisting crossbody splash, a lame spot because the timing was so off.
Rodimer dropped an elbow to the chest. Rodimer strangled Curtis with his own arms. The commentary focused on the problems
between Vaine and Williams. Curtis reversed the hold but Rodimer rammed his back into the turnbuckles. Rodimer landed an elbow
drop to the upper back. Rodimer applied a full nelson to soften Curtis up for his finisher. Rodimer hit the full nelson drop for the three
Rebecca DiPietro asked Mike Knox about what happened last week. Knox said he never trusted Jay, so his cowardice came as no
surprise, but a true friend wouldnâ€™t do what Ryan Oâ€™Reilly did. Knox said he couldnâ€™t accept it. He vowed that before it was all
over, all of them would be sorry they double crossed Mike Knox.
Luscious caught up with Urban Assault on their way to the ring. It was a tough night for Luscious. UA intimidated the hell out of her and
she ran off. Cocky Siaki said Gymini made the biggest mistake of their lives by sticking their nose in UAâ€™s business. Last week, UA
cost Gymini the tag titles, this week, they would cost them their careers. â€œEn otra palabra, itâ€™s a wrap. You guys are done son,â€�
DiPietro was backstage with the â€œjudge, jury and executioners,â€� the Gymini. Jesse said the DSW tag titles were their destiny.
(3) Urban Assault (Sonny Siaki & Eric Perez with G-Rilla) defeated The Gymini (with Angel Williams) in 7:27
Gymini hit the ring in attack mode. The match morphed into a round robin of heat spots with neither team able to sustain the advantage
for an extended period of time. The Bag Lady showed up to yell at G-Rilla again. Jake hit a swinging neckbreaker to set up double tags.
Jesse showed babyface fire. Jesse hit a full nelson legsweep on Perez but Siaki broke up the pin. Siaki superkicked Jesse and Jake
made the save. Williams jumped up on the apron and called Siaki over. When he got within range, Williams slapped him across the
face. G-Rilla grabbed Williams. Jake confronted G-Rilla, who gave Wiliams what amounted to a backdrop onto the floor. Extremely rude.
Jake started brawling with G-Rilla. Referee Rob Russo was out of position and had to turn his back so as not to see Perez clocking
Jesse with a chain. Siaki covered Jesse for the three count.
A replay aired of Taylor pinning Jay in the non-title match.
Backstage, DiPietro asked Jay about his recent loss to Taylor. Jay said it was an irrelevant match because he still had the title, and the
outcome would be the same after tonight. Jay said he was getting an injunction to prevent the footage from being shown again.
(4) Bradley Jay beat Micah Taylor (with Tracy Taylor) to retain the DSW Heavyweight Title in 10:26
The crowd had the hots for Taylor at the start. Sherrod suggested that Jay was not at 100% after the beating he absorbed from Oâ
€™Reilly and Neikirk last week. Jay took Taylor down with a top wristlock and got bigtime pressure on the elbow. Taylor scored with a
single leg and got a stepover toehold, but Jay was able to kick him off. Clean break, an exchange of two-hand shoves, and Taylor got a
waistlock takedown. Jay went for an escape that sent both men tumbling out to the floor. Jay rammed Taylorâ€™s back into the ring
apron. Back inside the ring, Taylor clutched at his back. Jay was all boots and elbows. Jay hit a backbreaker for a near fall. Taylor fired
back with solid right hands. Jay cut Taylor off and dropped him with an elbow to the base of the skull. Jay continued to pound away on
Taylor. Jay rammed Taylorâ€™s head into two sets of turnbuckle pads. Taylor blocked number three and bounced Jayâ€™s head off the
buckle. Taylor staggered Jay with a trio of right hands. Taylor stomped Jayâ€™s foot and dropped him with another right. Taylor hit a big
Biel throw. Taylor was hulking up, but Jay reversed a whip and caught him in a sleeper. Taylor ran Jayâ€™s back into the turnbuckles.
Jay wouldnâ€™t release the hold and took Taylor down. DeMott said Taylor was going to la la land. Twice, Taylorâ€™s arm dropped to
the mat. Taylor miraculously came to life. Taylor hit a back suplex. Taylor hit his patented leg lariat and cradled Jay for the three count. Jay
barely got his foot under the ropes before the three. Referee John Cone saw Jayâ€™s foot around the rope and waved off the pin. Taylor
was a man on a mission. He hammered Jay with a lefts and rights. Taylor hit a corner lariat. Taylor worked over Jayâ€™s gut. Taylor
mounted the ropes for the 10 punches. At five, Jay took Taylor down by the trunks and pinned him with feet on the ropes.
DSW is keeping it interesting with multi-faceted stories surrounding both of the titles, and the 60 minutes program give mores time for
things to sink in and to develop undercard stuff. The crowd was as revved for Vito/Heath. It was an entertaining match for what it was, and
way better than the two dark matches I had seen at DSW involving Heath, whose facial expressions were pretty awesome here. I
thoroughly enjoyed his promo, especially when he went off on DiPietroâ€¦If the rumors are true, Rodimer isnâ€™t long for Deep South.
No doubt the physique is phenomenal. Yes, heâ€™s got charisma, and heâ€™s got the potential to develop into an interesting heel
character, but HEâ€™S NOT READYâ€¦How many times is WWE going to make the same mistake?â€¦Gymini/UA was all a finish that
established the Gymini as the babyfaces in the feud. Williams took a wicked looking bump from G-Rillaâ€¦Taylor and Jay had a good
brawl. The fans reacted to Taylor like he had a legit shot at dethroning Jay, and seemed deflated when he got screwed in the end, so the
non-title win was effective. Sherrod was working hard to get Jay across as a serious challengerâ€¦The shots from the handheld camera
showing a sparsely populated section of bleachers in the background need to goâ€¦This was the second hour of a double taping. The
first hour was scheduled to air on 11/27 but some type of snafu resulted in a rerun instead. Other results from the first hour were Gymini
(with Angel Williams) beating Major Brothers via DQ when Urban Assault interfered and Ray Geezy over Big Bully Douglas.
