Wednesday Night Turmoil’s opening video comes to a close and the fans are on their feet as we watch William Regal and Jim Ross take their seats at the announcers table. Good Ol’ JR receives a welcoming reception from his home state and he gives a humble wave back to the audience. JR sits down and Regal teases him that he doesn’t seem to be in a good mood having come back home. “I’m not William and I’ll soon tell you why. Ladies and gentlemen thank you for joining us here at KWF Blogs. I am excited to be here as I am every week no matter where our travels take us, but folks, I have some terrible news coming from KWF’s Head Office here tonight.” JR goes on to reveal that there will not be a Tag Team Title match between Beer Money and The Dudley Boys here tonight. Regal says that the scheduled match will not happen because Bubba Ray and Devon Dudley had attacked Roode and Storm on their travels this past week. “It was all at an airport Jim. The Dudleys checked the travel schedules of Beer Money and they picked their spot before pouncing and destroying them so much that they’re both now injured and unable to compete.” JR: “But can you condone it William? These poor fans have been cheated out of a Tag Team Title match and Beer Money, well, James Storm has been hospitalized and Roode, well apparently Robert Roode will be here to address the situation later on this evening.” Regal chuckles: “Yes and apparently, Roode is on crutches too. Haha, see now you shouldn’t mess with the Dudleys Jim. I know you think they’ve been riding the coat-tails of our co-Chairs, but look what happens. Bret Hart comes in and voices his ‘fair game’ on behalf of the Board and Bubba and Devon put that fair game on the injured list. Haha. I think it’s brilliant tactics. The Dudley Boys want to go to Mania as Champions and now, now they won’t even have to defend their Belts tonight or at SuperBrawl. Brilliant!” JR says that the Dudleys are cowards. “All that history and accomplishment from Bubba and Devon and now this is how they see off a challenge?! It’s ridiculous, cowardice and down right out of line – they attacked Beer Money away from a KWF event, that wasn’t fair combat, and that’s no way to represent the best of KWF’s Tag Teams! They’ve cheated everyone out of a Tag Title match here tonight and with the injuries Roode and Storm have sustained, the Dudley Boys may well have ended their careers. Damn those Dudley Boyz, I thought you had more class than that Dudleys!?”
♫The music of Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart♫ «< click to play) wails around the arena and wrestling’s most famous Canadian makes his way to the ring. The fans go wild as the representative of the KWF Board, in his trademark leather jacket and jeans, grabs a mic and gets in the ring. He begins by telling the fans that he wanted to come out here and address them properly, as last week was more of a machine gun approach when he ambushed a Hogan and Flair tirade. He thanks the fans for welcoming him back and for helping him to restore order in the Keystone Wrestling Federation. “Without you guys reading every week, none of these shows would be possible, and all these elite KWF superstars would be stuck back on house shows doing dick and fart jokes on a weekly basis, so thank you all from the bottom of my heart.” The fans cheer. Bret goes on to reiterate how he was asked to come back to the KWF by the Board in order to save WrestleMania from Hogan and Flair. However, the music of the co-Chairmen hits and the fans boo. Regal says this serves Bret right for interrupting them last week. Hogan and Flair stand on the stage looking pretty smug, both with mic’s in hand. Hogan starts by saying that he’s glad to see Bret out here, pandering to the ‘morons’ who lap up his ‘BS’. He adds that he and Naytch have been talking all week about the announcement from the KWF Board that they will be facing the team of Sting and Stone Cold Steve Austin in a bout for the ages at WrestleMania. Flair takes over and says “That’s right Hitman. We’ve been talking, and we have decided to flex our co-Chairmen muscles. We still run things around here, and don’t you forget it. Sure, we’ll face those two bozos at Mania, but they’ll have to work their asses off down this particular road before they get to us. We have booked them in a match for SuperBrawl, Wooo!!” Hogan adds: “That’s right brother. At SuperBrawl, Stone Cold and Sting are going to be up against the two meanest dudes I’ve ever known to come out of the UK. The Welsh Dragons, Rob Terry and Mason Ryan!” The fans boo as Bret looks on in the ring. He nods and says “Alright. I kinda figured you guys would come back with something like that. I can’t say I like it, but I’ve taken the liberty of speaking with both Sting and Austin this week, and they have reluctantly agreed to put their differences aside so that they can take you on at WrestleMania. And I’m sure they’ll be okay with a tune up match at SuperBrawl, so sure, it’s on, Sting and Stone Cold will face Mason Ryan and Rob Terry.” Hogan and Flair seem happy enough, but perhaps not so pleased that Bret felt the need to confirm their plan. However, before they can bring him up on it, Hart goes on to talk about the KWF World Champion John Cena. He says that he’s noticed a pattern the past few weeks, that Cena has won his last two matches against CM Punk and Kane thanks to the actions of The UnderTaker and The Absolute Lashley. The Dark Side has somewhat saved John Cena on both occasions, and so tonight, to determine that Hogan and Flair haven’t enlisted The Dark Side in order to keep Cena as their Champ, how about a match… “John Cena vs. The UnderTaker!” The fans roar with excitement as Hogan and Flair’s eyes widen in panic. JR: “Cena versus The Deadman! What a main event for Turmoil! Hulk and Ric can’t believe it!” ♫Hart’s music♫ «< click to play) hits again and we fade out to commercial with Hogan and Flair arguing amongst themselves as they storm towards the back.
Back from a commercial break we watch as Hardcore Champion Mark Henry takes a seat by William Regal and joins commentary for this upcoming match. Samoa Joe makes his entrance and he’s applauded by the fans as JR tells of how Joe was screwed out of the Hardcore Championship at KWF’s Royal Rumble. Ross reminds us that Rob Van Dam came to interfere in the match and he Van Terminated Samoa Joe. Mark Henry angrily chimes in: “Hey don’t forget that I picked up Joe and decimated him through a steel chair JR. You seem to forget that Van Dam knocked me off my feet upon coming to the ring and he did not cost Samoa Joe the Hardcore Title cause I woulda won the damn thing any way!” Regal tells JR to stop poking the bear as ♫Rob Van Dam’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and RVD makes his way under the rising tron and down the ramp. The fans raise the roof for RVD and JR tells that both Van Dam and Joe are super fan favorites. “It’s fantastic that we get to see them face off here on Wednesday Night Turmoil, but this isn’t going to be any kind of match – this is a fight! A straight up fight!” JR’s words are backed up by the sight of Samoa Joe sprinting out of the ring and up the ramp. He meets Van Dam mid thumb-taunt and tackles him to the steel flooring. RVD quickly rolls Joe away, but as they both get up we see Joe start with jabs to Van Dam’s face and torso. Van Dam comes back with a forearm and a knee to the gut. They both back off and then Van Dam goes to spin kick Joe, but in doing so, Joe goes to perform a jumping kick to the back of RVD’s head and both masters of the art connect with their kicks! ‘Ohhh’ gasp the crowd as they cheer and applaud the action. JR and Regal can’t believe how wild this is and the match hasn’t even officially started. We send it to commercials.
Samoa Joe vs. Rob Van Dam
We’re back Live and it’s perfect timing as the bell finally rings to get this match officially under way. Joe and Van Dam are both groggy having battered each other during RVD’s entrance. The crowd are separated, half chanting ‘Rob Van Dam, The Whole F’n Show!’ and the rest singing ‘Joe’s Gonna Kill You!’ The atmosphere is electric and the tension between Joe and RVD is felt throughout the arena. Joe stands to jab punches at RVD, but Van Dam Irish Whips him against the ropes. RVD performs his splits duck as Joe jumps over him, but as Joe goes against the second set of rope RVD puts his legs up as if to try flip Joe, but he telegraphs it and Joe counters by trying to pick up Van Dam by his legs. However, Van Dam’s leg strength is too strong and he pulls Joe over into a pinning predicament, gets One, gets Two – but it’s only Two as Joe kicks out. Joe angrily gets up and goes at RVD with a clothesline, but Van Dam ducks and tries for a spin kick, but Joe grabs the kicking leg, lifts Van Dam and throws him over himself almost in the same motion of a pump handle slam resulting in a t-bone suplex. Joe goes against the ropes and comes to the centre of the ring to back splash on RVD, but it’s only Two on the cover as this match continues. JR, Regal and Henry discuss how these two superstars have come to not like each other, but how the match at hand has gone from a fight to a wrestling match where it seems that Joe and Van Dam are both trying to out-do each other. Regal: “Well that’s all it really comes down to JR. I mean, they can kick and jab and athletically fly around the ring all they want, but bumps and bruise tally’s won’t win them the match. They’re both looking for quick pins because with the style they both possess, they both know that for them to defeat the other with such a quick pinning predicament, it’d humiliate their opponent.” JR: “Oh I don’t know about that. Rob Van Dam and Samoa Joe have their differences, but I don’t think they’re malicious enough to want to humiliate the other. What do you think Mark?” Henry: “I think you damage your opponent. Hurt them so they can barely breathe. Then, you pin for Three.” Regal: “That simple really.” The contest continues to go back and forth but then the match spills to ringside where Mark Henry stands to stare down Samoa Joe. Joe’s not so much looking at Henry, but moreso at the Hardcore Title. Henry yells “You want this boy? This is my Belt! Ain’t nobody gonna take it from me!” Joe says a few things back, but we can’t make out his exact words. RVD comes toward Joe, but just after Mark Henry sits back down, Joe takes Van Dam and throws him head over heels toward the Hardcore Champion! The audience gasp once more as Henry soon gets up. He takes off his head-set and shoves RVD’s body aside. Samoa Joe is confident as he wills Henry to get up and fight. The crowd go wild as Henry stalks Joe and Joe runs at him and “Ladies and gentlemen here we go! Business has just picked up and Mark Henry and Samoa Joe are scheduled to have a Hardcore Championship rematch at KWF SuperBrawl!” Regal: “But they’re starting the fight in Oklahoma Jim. Samoa Joe is a fool for doing what he did. How dare he taunt Henry like that? And the blithering idiot spilled my tea when he threw RVD in our direction.” Joe and Henry fight around ringside and eventually through the crowd, up the stairs and to the back.
We watch the battle all the way to the merchandise stands and that’s where we see security and referees eventually show up to try split these guys apart. The fans go crazy as Joe and Henry both have chances to get shots in on one another and eventually it takes a total of twelve men to split Joe and Henry apart. JR yells “Mark Henry and Samoa Joe are finally split up, good lord what a battle it’s going to be at our next pay-per-view. Henry vs. Joe Part II – I can’t wait!” Regal finishes: “Oh it’s going to be a Super Brawl alright!”
It’s that time of the week again, it’s our Turmoil recap. Last Wednesday night rocked the world of wrestling as Bret Hart returned to the Keystone Wrestling Federation. The Hitman announced that he was brought back by the KWF Board of Directors to stop Hogan and Flair from corrupting the company beyond repair. Hart announced that, while The Hulkster and Naytch will stay in charge, he has the authority to make matches and overrule any decision he feels are unfair between now and WrestleMania. He shocked the co-Chairmen further by informing them that, by instruction of the KWF Board, Hogan and Flair will be facing the two men they tormented at Survivor Series, Sting and Stone Cold Steve Austin, in a tag match at Mania, with their ownership of the KWF on the line! Also last week; Mickie James was granted her rematch against Angelina Love for the Women’s Title, John Morrison went one on one with Intercontinental Champion Matt Morgan, Konan took on Evan Bourne, The Dudleys were taken down a peg by The Hitman, CM Punk responded to The UnderTaker’s ghoulish proposition, and John Cena was made to work for a change as he went up against the Big Red Masked Monster, Kane! Catch up with February 1st’s Wednesday Night Turmoil, click HERE now!
Backstage we see the office of Hogan and Flair. The door has a gold plaque on it, very fancy and expensive looking. Underneath the plaque we see a sticker with ‘Bret Hart’ scribbled on it, and a famous Hitman doodle drawn next to it. Christian Cage approaches the door and he enters. He shakes hands with Bret Hart, completely ignoring Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. Hogan and Flair are mid-conversation anyway and we hear Bret and Cage share small-talk about Hart’s return. Christian moves the conversation quickly onto getting his chance to shine. “Those two yahoos have been overlooking me for months, but you know I’m one of the best workers in this business and…” Bret stops him and concedes that he intends on giving all those who have been overlooked under the Hogan/Flair regime a fair chance, like he did with John Morrison last week. Bret grants Christian’s wish and says he’ll put him in a match tonight, but they’re soon interrupted by Hogan and Flair. They could hear the conversation and say that, as Bret is making matches and granting chances to ‘failed nobodies like Morrison and Cage’, that they will be the ones to pick the opponent for Christian tonight. Flair: “But who is worthy of taking on this Creepy Little Bastard?” Hogan: “Hmm, what about a giant? What about a 7ft tall, 500-pound weapon of mass destruction brother?” Christian: “Whoa Hulk, I’m not going up against your ex-wife.” Bret and even Ric laugh, but Hogan doesn’t. “I meant the Big Show you little punk. And once he WMD’s your Canadian ass off of our show, we won’t have to hear any more of your whining.” Hogan and Flair exit, while Bret tells Christian he can beat Show if he wrestles his own game.
We head back to ringside where JR commends Bret’s initiative to give more of the guys in the back a chance, but Regal says he just walked Christian right into a death wish. “Big Show will literally sit on him. I bet Cage is regretting being so forward in his attempts to get some telly time.” The comms go on to review the footage of Rey Mysterio 619ing his X-Division Title in the face of Evan Bourne last week on Turmoil. JR: “The actions of Mysterio were heinous and I can’t believe that Konan is his manager throughout this whole thing.” Regal: “Oh come on Jim. For the first time in Mysterio’s career the man is finally unpredictable. He’s become must-see and I for one and glad to see the more selfish side to his personality. Konan is just insurance, you can’t begrudge either man of that.” JR says that Mysterio is currently the X-Division Champion, but with Konan at his side, who will challenge Rey next for the X-Title?!
♫The music of Natalya♫ «< click to play) hits as she makes her way to the ring. JR: “Well ladies and gentlemen, here comes the niece of The Hitman, Natalya Neidhart. Another bright idea from Bret is to hold a tournament for the KWF Women’s Division. Eight women will fight it out in a knockout tournament from now until WrestleMania, and the winner will face Angelina Love on the Grandest Stage of them all for the KWF Women’s Championship. And we kick off that tournament tonight as Natalya takes on Kaitlyn.” Regal: “Aaah, grappling chicks on a Wednesday Night. Now this I can get used to.”
Natalya vs. Kaitlyn w/ Panther – First Round match of the Chicks Number One Contender Tournament
The bell rings and the opening match of the tournament gets underway. Natalya and Kaitlyn lock up, with Ms Neidhart using her power to back the rookie up into the corner. William Regal talks up the premise of the tournament. “This is one idea that Bret Hart got right I have to say. I’m all for seeing the ladies in the ring as often as possible, and I love tournament wrestling. Being a former King Of The Ring myself, I love all the excitement of the competition and finding out who your next opponent is going to be. This will bring the best out in these girls, with a Title shot at WrestleMania on the line.” JR concurs, reminding us that last year the Title shot at WrestleMania went to the winner of a Women’s Royal Rumble, and coincidentally enough that winner was the current KWF Women’s Champion, Angelina Love. As Natalya continues to dominate the match, clutching Kaitlyn in a side headlock, we notice Panther banging on the apron, trying to garner support from the fans for the Texas girl. They clap along, to which Regal comments on the presence of the former United States Champion. “Why is he even out here? He’s not going to get involved and put his hands on Natalya, he’s just out here for a perv I think.” JR: “Absolutely, and that’s your job right William? But seriously, Panther’s out here supporting his woman, and the way this match has gone so far, it looks like poor Kaitlyn needs all the support she can get.” Nattie is still on top, hitting an impressive suplex and getting a Two-count on a cover. She signals for the Sharpshooter, as JR compliments her on her wrestling ability. “Nattie has all the aggression of her father, Jim the Anvil, but that’s fused with the technical abilities of her Uncle’s Bret and Owen. I love that our Women wrestlers are given this platform to perform here in the KWF, rather than put in stupid storylines involving flatulence, I mean, who would pay to see that?” Regal: “Careful now.” Nattie struggles to turn Kaitlyn over, and the powerful legs of the rookie force her Canadian counterpart away. Nattie comes back to grab her legs again, but Kaitlyn thinks fast and gets her in a small package, getting a very close Two-count. The duo trade blows as this match continues, but a mistake from Natalya allows Kaitlyn to grab her by the arms, before slamming her down with a Reverse STO! She hooks the leg and gets the Three.
♫Kaitlyn’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and Kaitlyn jumps up and down in excitement as Panther rushes in to hoist her up on his shoulder. JR: “Wow, you must say that was an upset right there. The rookie Kaitlyn defeats Natalya in this first round match and she advances to the semi-finals.” Regal: “Certainly an upset Jim, but that’s the beauty of tournament wrestling. Young Kaitlyn is now just two wins away from WrestleMania.” Kaitlyn and Panther continue to celebrate in the ring. Nattie rolls out the squared circle and she shakes her head, disappointed in herself and the result of the match.
Backstage we see Bret ‘the Hitman’ Hart. He’s walking the equipment area and he comes across what looks like a three way junction. As Bret walks one way, oncoming from the left is The Icon Sting and oncoming from the right is Stone Cold Steve Austin. The crowd cheer in the background as they see these three legends on the same screen. Bret talks to Sting and Austin together and it’s clear that the Rattlesnake and The Icon do not get along. Bret: “Look I get that you guys blame each other for the Hogan/Flair takeover. But it’s over now. Sting, when you called me” – Austin interrupts “Wait, he called you?!” Bret: “Yeah.” Austin smiles and looks at Sting: “So this is what I get? This is how The Icon disrespects the Rattlesnake huh?!” Sting shakes his head and talks to Bret “See, you see what I’m dealing with?! He’s crazy!” Austin shoves Sting in the shoulder and says “Look at me when I’m talking to you son. You call the Hitman without talking to Stone Cold? You and I could have dealt with Hogan and Flair. I coulda gone down to that ring, Stunned the living crap outta both of’m and you coulda done away with them with that bat of yours and that woulda been the end of em!” Sting: “Steve, shove me like that again and I will show you exactly what I can do with my bat. You have to understand that attacking Hulk and Ric wasn’t the way to do it. It wasn’t the way to resolve things long term and if we had taken them out it would have been a short term solution.” Bret: “He’s right Steve. You’d have beaten them up, raised hell, for what? For them to come back and suspend you? Or worse? If that had happened then we wouldn’t be able to resolve this as we are. They’d still have control and you two wouldn’t be around to take them on at WrestleMania. You gotta be smart Steve. Hogan and Flair were watching you two argue, watching you bicker like you still are. But they didn’t make the first move, they were hoping the two of you would grind each other into the canvas, but when Sting called me it was the best move that coulda happened cause now Hulk and Ric can’t do a damn thing about it.” Austin looks at Bret with some intensity. “Smart? Do you think I’m not smart? Do you think I’m stupid?! Hitman I took on Vince McMahon right after you left the WWF with your tail between your legs and Icon, you never went to the WWE because you knew you couldn’t cut it with men like me; Stone Cold Steve Austin.” Sting interrupts: “Calm down. We know your history, but I’ve dealt with Hogan and Flair before, so has Bret. We know how they work and with the Board involved and Bret evening things out around here, Hulk and Ric’s hands are tied. Believe me, it’s much better this way.” Austin is PO’d, saying that he should have been consulted about this whole angle but Bret says that he’s blowing it up way out of proportion. Bret says that the bottom line is that nobody wants Hulk/Ric to stay in charge so if Austin & Sting win at Mania then that’s it, things go back to normal and after that, Austin can stun Hogan/Flair every week if he wants because they go back on the active roster. Austin says that he’s not going to like tagging with Sting, but nonetheless he’s going to whup ass at SuperBrawl and whup ass at Mania “and that’s the bottom line, cause Stone Cold says so!”
We come to Jeremy Borash backstage who is ready to interview another KWF superstar. “Ladies and gentlemen, will you please welcome my guest at this time. The winner of the 2012 Royal Rumble match, The Phenomenal AJ Styles.” Styles enters shot and we hear a cheer from the crowd in the arena. JB starts off by congratulating AJ on winning the Rumble and asking how it felt. “It felt incredible JB. Ever since I was a Phenomenal little boy I have watched the Royal Rumble. One of the most iconic concepts in wrestling, and a creator of legends. It was such a thrill to dump Chris Jericho out on his backside and to book my place at WrestleMania. And now that Bret Hart is back, that Road will hopefully be a bit clearer for me than it would have been had Hogan and Flair gotten their way.” JB goes on to ask Styles to elaborate on Bret’s return. AJ says he was delighted to see the Hitman come back. He talks of the great deal of respect he has for Hart and how the changes he’s making have been noticeable already. “The guys in the back have smiles on their faces again. There’s no more looking over our shoulders, and if Sting and Austin can raise hell at WrestleMania and beat Hogan and Flair, then we can look forward to an incredible future in the KWF under whoever takes over.” JB moves along to WrestleMania, asking Styles if he thinks it will be John Cena he faces. “JB I couldn’t care less who I face at Mania. Me and Cena have a lot of recent history as y’all know. He cost me the WWE Title, twice, and he got a backhanded win over me at Survivor Series, but if we go toe-to-toe again on the Grandest Stage of them all, there’ll be nothing Cena can do but look up at the lights and wonder what the hell just kicked him in the head so hard. But hey, whether it’s Cena, Punk, UnderTaker, Kane, Jericho, whoever Bret decides is going to face Cena at SuperBrawl, then I say bring em on, because the Phenomenal One is ready to fly with the KWF World Heavyweight Championship.” Styles exits as JB hands it back to ringside.
JR comments on how he believes AJ Styles is ready to steal the show at WrestleMania, but Regal isn’t so sure. “Couldn’t you hear the fear in his voice? That boy is quaking in his boots, hoping and praying that John Cena isn’t Champion come WrestleMania. He got his backside handed to him at Survivor Series, and it’ll be even more embarrassing if it happens again on the biggest night of the year. He’ll be rooting for the challenger at SuperBrawl, but God knows who that’s going to be.” ♫The music of Beer Money♫ «< click to play) hits and Robert Roode enters with Gail Kim. Roode is on crutches as we are reminded by JR that Beer Money were scheduled to have their KWF Tag Title rematch against The Dudleys tonight, but a vicious attack earlier this week from Bubba and Devon put paid to that. Roode and Kim are in the ring and Bobby addresses the audience. He apologizes to them and confirms that there will be no Tag Title match tonight. He says that he got off pretty lightly with damage to his ankle, but James Storm wasn’t so lucky. His injuries mean he will be out of action for several months. “It’s been one hell of a run, and I can’t say for certain when Beer Money will be back, but I can assure each and every one of you, and that includes you Dudleys, that Beer Money WILL be back and we WILL be coming after those KWF Tag Team Championships.” The crowd cheer, but the scenes are interrupted by ♫the music of Sheamus and Kozlov♫ «< click to play). The Celtic Warrior and his tag team partner Vladimir Kozlov make their way to the ring. Sheamus tells Roode that he and Storm have been an inspiration to tag team wrestling in recent years. He then asks the fans to join him and Kozlov in a standing ovation for Beer Money, which the audience obliges with. This also kicks off a Beer Money chant which goes on for quite a while as Roode is almost emotional. Gail Kim even hugs Sheamus and gets a gentlemanly handshake from Vlad. JR: “The utmost show of appreciation and respect. You don’t see Sheamus and Kozlov tip their hats to The Dudleys.” Regal: “That’s cause they’re idiots JR. A Russian and an Irishman walk into a Beer Money bar… drat, I know there’s a joke in there somewhere.” Sheamus and Kozlov’s show of respect is soon interrupted by The Dudleys. Bubba Ray and Devon come out on stage and mock this whole scene. Bubba: “Are you kidding me? What has Beer Money ever done for this industry?! We are 29-time Tag Team Champions, the only thing Beer Money could win is a butt-ugly manager competition.” Gail Kim doesn’t take kindly to this and has to be stopped from racing up the ramp and slapping the taste out of Bubba’s mouth. This leads to Sheamus saying “Look fella. You may have pulled a dirty trick in injuring Beer Money, but that shouldn’t get you off the hook when it comes to defending those Titles. How about you put your big mouth to good use and accept a challenge from me and Kozlov for them Belts… at SuperBrawl?!!!” The fans cheer, but Bubba and Devon shake their heads. “You think you can beat us? The great Dudleys? Some red and white Irishman and a confused Russian? No, no, like everyone else, you’re going to have to earn a shot.” Bubba is interrupted as Hogan and Flair come up on screen. Flair: “You know what Bubba, you’re absolutely right. Sheamus, if you and that tag partner of yours want a Title shot, you’re going to have to go through these guys first.” With that, ♫the music of the British Invasion♫ «< click to play) hits and Mason Ryan and Rob Terry come down to the ring. JR: “Sheamus and Kozlov have to face Ryan and Terry? This is Hogan and Flair’s answer to everything tonight.” Regal: “And why not. These two monsters will destroy Sheamus and Kozlov. Title shots indeed, the very thought of it. Come on you Welsh Dragons!”
Sheamus & Vladimir Kozlov vs. Mason Ryan & Rob Terry
This match promises to be a classic as four of the biggest men in the KWF square off. This is effectively a number one contender’s match for Sheamus and Kozlov, as they look to land themselves in a KWF Tag Title match at SuperBrawl. Things start well for them as well as Kozlov gets the better of Mason Ryan. He attacks him with headbutts and chops, before sending him against the ropes and flooring him with a clothesline. Regal comments on the mass of humanity in the ring, and his bias for the British Invasion shines through. “Mason and Rob are two wrecking machines, and thanks to the fine tutelage of their leader Wade Barrett, there is no stopping them.” JR asks why they aren’t going for the Tag Titles if they’re so good, to which Regal replies that they have more respect than that. “The Dudleys are 29-time Champions, and deserve to carry those Belts as a symbol of their achievements. Mason and Rob are quite happy destroying people on a weekly basis, but make no mistake, eventually they will dominate the Titles, and Tag Team wrestling as a whole.” JR: “They’re 28-time Champs Regal, not 29. The result at KWF Royal Rumble was null and void, a result that Beer Money won by the way.” Regal ignores JR as he is getting more and more confident with his praise as the Welsh Dragons get control. A sneaky double team got them the upper hand and now Ryan and Terry are making quick tags to isolate Kozlov in their corner. They are hitting hard pounding shots to the Russian. Terry hits a bodyslam and elbow drop, before tagging in Ryan who hits a running clothesline and a belly-to-belly suplex. They taunt Sheamus after nearly every move, as The Dudleys watch on from the top of the ramp. Roode and Kim remain at ringside cheering on Kozlov. The Moscow Mauler is struggling, until a comeback sees him headbutt Ryan away. He leaps across and makes the hot tag to Sheamus, who comes in all guns blazing. The Great White hits a side axe handle on Ryan before hitting a Brogue Kick on Terry to knock him off the apron. He goes to town on Mason Ryan, pulling his torso through the ropes and pulling back on his neck, before pounding heavy forearm shots down onto his chest. Sheamus works over Ryan some more, before heading out to the apron. He goes for his leap over the rope for a shoulder barge, but Terry grabs his ankle and pulls him down to the floor. They trade blows on the outside, which causes the referee to try and split them up. Kozlov enters the ring on the blindside and hits Ryan with a running headbutt. Ryan is down and out, and Sheamus sees this. He races back into the ring and the referee follows. Terry goes to break up the count as Sheamus covers Ryan, but Bobby Roode, puts his crutch in the way and trips Terry up, allowing Sheamus to get Three.
Winners: Sheamus and Vladimir Kozlov.
Sheamus and Kozlov win and they will now face The Dudleys at SuperBrawl for the KWF Tag Titles, but the celebrations are cut short as Terry grabs Roode and rolls him into the ring. The recovered Ryan is back up and The Dudleys have descended on the ring. The four of them lay into Sheamus, Kozlov and Roode and try to beat them down. JR: “This is not right, 4-on-3, and one of them has a fractured ankle!” The crowd boo like hell as Gail Kim is also being stalked, but then all of a sudden, ♫*Shattered Glass* Stone Cold’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and The Rattlesnake comes down to clean house. The Dudleys exit and back up the ramp before he can get to them, but Austin has his sights set on Terry and Ryan, clotheslining Ryan over the top rope, before an assist from Sheamus allows him to hit a Stunner on Big Rob Terry! The fans go wild as Austin shares a beer with Sheamus, Kozlov and Roode. JR: “Austin has been in an ass-whuppin’ mood all night, and there he just unleashed hell on Rob Terry and Mason Ryan!” Regal: “Mason and Rob were simply caught off guard and come SuperBrawl, it’ll be a whole different story.” Austin looks up to the rafters where we see that The Icon Sting has been watching the whole thing.
We see a video of a camera panning into a large stadium. There is a NFL Football match about to take place. A voiceover says ‘This February. The biggest spectacle in sport. An event watched by millions all around the world.’ The camera pans along a line of huge guys, all padded out in Football gear. “After months of competition, it all comes down to this, where legends are made, dreams can be broken, and men become Gods.” The camera stops on one footballer, who removes his helmet, and it’s Stone Cold Steve Austin who says “And this is the one-stop ass whuppin’ shop on the Road to WrestleMania! Aww Hell Yeah!!!” The rest of the footballers take off their helmets to reveal they are all KWF Superstars, and they brawl in the center of the field. The cheerleaders turn out to be KWF’s female wrestlers, and they also start beating the crap out of one another on the sidelines. ‘KWF SuperBrawl! Sunday February 19th right here at KWF Blogs!’
JR: “February 19th, SuperBrawl. It’s going to be a great night, and as Austin so eloquently put it, it is the last stop on the Road to WrestleMania. We already have some great matches to look forward to that night, but right now it seems we’re going to hear from our Intercontinental Champion.” Matt Morgan comes out to the ring looking pretty angry. JR reminds us that he is coming off the back of a loss, and we see footage from last week where Morgan got caught by a surprise roll up by John Morrison. Morgan gets on the mic and says that Morrison beating him last week was a complete fluke. “I am The Blueprint, I am a Champion, and nobody, certainly no jumped up little acrobat like Morrison, can beat me. Having to resort to a roll-up, and grabbing the tights, is just downright pathetic.” JR: “He didn’t grab the tights, Morgan is more bitter than a bad batch of barbeque sauce.” Before Morgan can go on, the Wednesday Night Delight himself comes out to the stage. Morrison tells Morgan that he is making excuses, and challenges him to prove that it was just a fluke, by putting his Intercontinental Title on the line against the Guru of Greatness at SuperBrawl. Morgan seems to be veering towards saying no, until Hogan and Flair come up on the rising Tron once more. Hogan speaks this time. “You know what Morrison, you can have your Title match at SuperBrawl brother. You earned it.” JR and even Morrison are taken aback by this, but it soon becomes apparent why the co-Chairmen are being so nice, with Flair saying “What do you think of that Bret? Are we fair enough for ya now huh? That is what real Chairmen do. Don’t let it be said that Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair aren’t fair guys. We run this show, and we say, Morrison versus Morgan at SuperBrawl baby, with the Intercontinental Gold on the line, Woooo!!” Morgan does not look happy in the ring, but Regal says that Hogan and Flair have proven themselves to be supreme co-Chairmen. “Does this not just prove that the KWF Board’s accusations are unfounded? Bret Hart must feel pretty stupid now.” JR says they’re simply sucking up to the Board in an attempt to save their bacon. JR: “Either way it doesn’t matter, at WrestleMania is where it all comes to a head.”
Christian Cage vs. Big Show
Christian Cage looks very much up for this one and he climbs the turnbuckle to take in the applause of the fans but this is a mistake as Show comes to clobber Cage from behind. Show turns Cage to face him, but Christian ducks under and slides out the ring from under the bottom rope. Show steps over the top rope to give chase, but Cage quickly climbs the apron and pulls up the top rope, right into Show’s nether regions! The crowd applaud as Show writhes in pain. He swings for Cage, but Christian then dropkicks Show in the knee. This unbalances him and the Giant tumbles all the way down the apron and onto the protective matting at ringside. Christian positions himself along the apron and he goes to splash on Show, but he targets the legs and splashes hard right into Show’s knee. JR: “Christian’s proving his worth here. What an excellent strategy.” Regal: “Yes he’s doing well to keep Show off his feet, but how does he plan to get him back in the ring?!” Christian often rolls in and out of the squared circle to break the referees Ten-counts and Regal suggests that Cage keep Show down to the extent that he wins this by Count-out. JR says that Christian doesn’t want to win that way and for him to take the scalp of Show via an in-ring victory, it could lead to gained confidence and further opportunities to impress here in the Keystone Wrestling Federation. JR tells that Christian has spent many months in the KWF and in the past in WWE where he’d be on the sidelines doing nothing. “He’d perform at the odd Live show, but nothing televised and I think he’s bored of that. The man faced his old pal Edge at KWF WrestleMania last year and no doubt, that was the headlining spectacle of his career, but he wants more now. I’m telling you, I see great things for Christian, he just has to adapt himself and work hard to get to wherever he wants to be.” Regal: “Oh JR, if that’s Christian’s take then more fool him. Why can’t he be like Big Show? I mean look at the Giant. He knows that on his day he can defeat anybody, but he doesn’t need Championship Belts and pats on the back to do that. The man is a worker and he comes in to do the job of wrestling and then tally up the money in his bank account. That’s all this is to him, win or lose, it’s the money that matters. Of course, the more you win, the more you get paid, that goes without saying. For Christian though, I’d suggest taking a leaf out of Show’s book. It’s a very content way to live.” As Regal finishes his sentence we see Christian lay off Show for a while and allow him back into the ring. However this is another mistake and as Christian goes to attack Show, the recovery time allows Show to get some momentum and even on his bad knee he lifts Cage and drills him down with a Show Stopping Chokeslam! One! Two! Three!
Winner: The Big Show.
Regal: “See, see I told you. Come in, wrestle, win and go home. Easy as pie. Well done big man, that’s how to show’m how it’s done.” Big Show raises his arm as the audience boo. Christian is laid out and JR wonders what next for Christian Cage. “He wanted this match so badly and he was doing so well. It’s detrimental to his confidence that he lost in the manner in which he did. Gosh I’m so disappointed for him. He’s going to be devastated after he watches this tape back.”
Backstage we’re with Jeremy Borash and he welcomes his guest at this time, Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart. “Bret Hart you’ve been back for just over a week here in the Keystone Wrestling Federation and I know you were interrupted as you went to the ring earlier. Have you got anything further to say to the fans who read KWF Blogs?” Bret: “Yeah JB. I wanta make sure everybody knows that I’m thankful. I’m thankful for the great feedback upon my return and on behalf of the KWF Board and the two guys who write this thing, I wanna say thanks. Thanks for reading, thanks for your constant support and praise and JB, I just wanna urge everybody to share KWF. Spread it all over the social networks, get people talking about what goes on here and please, somebody somewhere give our guy Farook a chance. An opportunity at his dream job. KWF’s been going nearly three years now and every year this product gets better. Imagine if it was real? Imagine seeing Cena as a bad guy, the Beautiful People together again and imagine the scenes of the Royal Rumble that the KWF just had. Farook has been wanting to do this since he was eight years old. The passion and burning desire to create, to innovate and to entertain, it’s priceless JB. I hope he gets a chance because TV’s CM Punk wants wrestling to be fun again. Well the KWF have CM Punk vs. The UnderTaker at our upcoming WrestleMania. How’s that for a hell of a ride?” JB smiles and agrees with every word and he too urges you kind folks to read and share KWF Blogs as often as you can. Borash changes tracks and talks about the control factor here in the KWF and he asks whether Bret is worried about Stone Cold Steve Austin and Sting getting along at WrestleMania. Bret: “You know what JB I am concerned. I mean the greater good is there for all to see, but after Steve Austin’s display of feeling disrespected, and then his ‘hell raising’ that we’ve just seen this evening, I don’t know if he and Sting can get along at all. I hope that the match with Ryan and Terry at SuperBrawl is a learning curve and it could be a blessing in disguise. They could use that match to learn to work together because they’ll certainly need to be on the same page come Mania. I don’t know. They’ve both been around the block so if they continue to argue I’m sure they’ll eventually realize that they’re just playing into Hogan and Flair’s hands. I’m definitely not as confident as I was a week ago that’s for sure.” Borash asks Bret who the KWF Board have lined up to take over as GM as and when WrestleMania is over. Bret says he knows who they have in mind and he also knows that person is very much looking forward to being back on KWF Blogs. Bret says “I’m not going to say anything now, because I don’t want to count my chickens, but rest assured the person that will take over as GM if Sting and Austin win at Mania is going to take the KWF to greater heights. This program will be fair all round, amazingly entertaining and I myself can’t wait to shut down this circus of Hogan and Flair’s and hand the reigns over to – wow, almost gave it away there.” One final thing, JB asks who is going to face John Cena for the KWF Title at SuperBrawl and Bret says that he’s purposely kept that on the hush because he knew Hogan and Flair would abuse their power to ride this guy like they did CM Punk before Royal Rumble. Bret says that the man who will challenge John Cena for the Title at KWF SuperBrawl will make himself known by the end of next week’s Turmoil. The scene fades as JR and Regal tell us that Turmoil’s main event s coming up next!
John Cena vs. The UnderTaker
The bell rings and UnderTaker goes from an upright stand into a mantis-like position and he’s ready to fight as he stalks and goes to attack the KWF World Champion. By the look on Cena’s face, he is nervous, perhaps more nervous than he was when he faced Taker’s brother Kane last week. Cena thumps UnderTaker in the face. He strikes him in the gut before going against the ropes but *WHAM* ‘Oohhhh’ gasp the crowd as a big boot damn near takes Cena’s head off! Taker covers for One, Two, no, only Two as this match continues. JR and Regal discuss the dynamics of this contest and Regal says that, by the way in which it’s started, it’s safe to say that The Dark Side and The Doctor were certainly not in cahoots when The Dark Side seemed to be there to save John Cena from disastrous losses of late. JR: “Oh I agree William. UnderTaker and The Absolute Lashley certainly didn’t show up to help John Cena. Taker specifically demanded CM Punk face him at WrestleMania and according to the DeadMan, for Punk to be the Best In The World, he has to defeat Taker at Mania, he has to put a stop to The UnderTaker’s WrestleMania streak!” Regal: “For the last 19 Mania’s no one has done it Jim and I don’t think Punk will either. CM Punk may be the Best Wrestler in the World, but he didn’t defeat Cena for the Title.” JR: “That was Taker’s fault.” Regal: “Yes, but if you’d let me finish Jim, what I was going to say is that the KWF Championship and wrestling as an art have nothing to do with defeating The UnderTaker at WrestleMania and the last two KWF Mania’s have proved it. Two years ago UnderTaker faced the challenge of Samoa Joe and last year he faced the challenge of Kurt Angle. Joe and Angle are two of the best wrestler’s the industry has ever seen. Samoa Joe is a machine, a submission machine and he is a near three hundred pound man with the athleticism of a cruiserweight. He couldn’t defeat The UnderTaker at Mania. Kurt Angle is a superb technician, a multiple World Champion and an Olympic Gold Medalist – Gold Medalist Jim. You don’t have accolades like that if you don’t prove yourself on one of the World’s Grandest Stages, but guess what; Angle went to Mania, KWF’s WrestleMania 2011, the Grandest Stage of Them All and he lost to The UnderTaker. Circumstances that night were questionable because we saw the debut of The Absolute Lashley and yes, I agree, that Angle may have, he may have won if Lashley hadn’t had interfered – but Jim we’ll never know. Now The UnderTaker has hand-picked CM Punk. He’s hand-picked a man who has elevated himself here on KWF Blogs over the past several months. He won The Joker’s Playground match at KWF Survivor Series. He’s defeated Christian Cage, Matt Morgan, Big Show, Jericho all on his way to what he thought was his deserved destiny. Best Wrestler in the world = KWF Champion right? Not according to The UnderTaker. CM Punk can talk and wrestle his way out of paper bags, but come Mania, in my eyes, he’s a dead man.” The match at hand meanwhile has gone back and forth and UnderTaker performs his legdrop across the chest whilst Cena hangs off the apron and we send it to our final commercial break of the night.
When we come back we see that The Doctor is in control. Split screen shows us that during the break Cena slammed The UnderTaker into the steel steps and the match has since turned around. Cena has Taker in the ring, gets One on the cover, gets Two, but Taker kicks out. JR and Regal address the uprising of the Masked Demon Kane and they wonder whether it is simply a battle of beasts between Kane and The Absolute Lashley or whether there’s more to it than that. Regal says that Kane attacked Lashley in the Royal Rumble match and that’s what started things off, and that’s why Lashley cost Kane the match versus Cena last week. JR says that before Kane entered the Royal Rumble match it was Lashley who was throwing people out left right and centre. “Lashley was the biggest dog in the yard at the time, Kane just got in his face and got him some, what was wrong with that? It was the Royal Rumble match, it was every man for himself.” Regal: “I don’t know JR. Was that Kane making a stand saying that he’s the monster around here or was that Kane perhaps feeling a little bit jealous that since Lashley has been with The UnderTaker, all eyes are on him and not the Masked Demon Kane.” JR: “So what, you’re saying Kane might be jealous? Jealous of The Absolute One being Taker’s protégé? You gotta be kidding me. Come on William, everyone knows the story of how Kane was at home when he was a kid. It was UnderTaker that lit the fire, UnderTaker who burned down their family home and caused pain and suffering to their family. Taker had no remorse for Kane at all. He was hoping he’d died in that fire!” Regal: “But Jim you forget that after they sorted out their differences, heck after Taker beat Kane twice at Mania’s, they’d gotten on the same page. They’d forgiven and forgotten pretty much and they formed the Brothers of Destruction tag team, d’you remember that?!” JR: “Of course I remember that, but I just don’t buy it. Why would Kane be jealous now, after all this time? I’m not even sure that we’re reading too much into things because as two demonic beings in the KWF, Kane and Lashley may just share a mutual hatred.” Regal: “Time will tell Jim, time will tell.”
Cena has spent quite some time on top now, but as he goes to the top rope he attempts a leg drop to the back of Taker’s head, but UnderTaker gets up and out the way. Cena stands to run at Taker and Taker in turns sprints right back at him and *WHAM* both superstars attempt clothesline and JR describes this collision as a car wreck right in the middle of the ring. The crowd are all on their feet waiting in anticipation of who gets up first. However, everyone’s attention is turned toward the stage as the arena lights turn blood red and dark clouds appear on the rising tron… *BOOM* the pyro’s explode and the fans scream as we watch the Big Red Masked Monster Kane make his way down to the ring. Kane steps up onto the apron and as he steps over the top rope the referee flings out the ring as fast as he can. Kane stands over the man who defeated him last week and he stands over his brother The UnderTaker. Kane’s music turns off, but the lighting stays red and smoke embarks around ringside. JR and Regal are speechless as The UnderTaker sits up. Members of the audience scream as Taker stands to face Kane. There are shivers down the collective spines of the audience as Kane seems to be saying something to Taker. His mask covers his whole face, but we can see Taker responding to Kane’s words and UnderTaker too is talking back to his brother. JR whispers “What could they be saying?” Regal: “I’m not sure I want to know.”
This conversation seems to last an eternity, but as we then see a shot of John Cena standing to regroup by the corner, the arena lights turn back to normal as we see a figure leap out the audience and into to the ring. JR yells “It’s Punk! It’s CM Punk!” Punk goes and clobbers The UnderTaker from behind and Taker drops to one knee. Punk lays into him, and the fans go nuts chanting his name – but Kane grabs Punk by the throat! “Oh my God!” gasps JR. Kane turns with CM Punk in his grasp and he then grabs an oncoming John Cena! Kane lifts up both men and *BAM* a devastating crushing of souls! “John Cena, the KWF World Champion. CM Punk, the self proclaimed Best In The World, they’ve both been Chokeslammed straight to helllll!” JR and Regal collectively go crazy as almost immediately after the impact of the double Chokeslam, we hear *BONG!*… the arena lights turn off completely… *BONG!* they come back on and Kane looks around him. Cena’s still there. Punk’s still there… No UnderTaker. The UnderTaker was battered down by Punk, but it was a mugging rather than a blood-fest and now The DeadMan has disappeared from the scene. The fans here in Oklahoma are shocked. Kane steps square to the camera, he raises his arms and slams them down to command the blazing of fire from the corner ring-posts. The arena is lit blood red again and KWF’s Wednesday Night Turmoil fades to the ♫theme of the Masked Demon ♫ UnderTaker’s brother, The Big Red Monster Kane.
