♫Isolation! If you could only see, what will come to be YEAH!!!♫ «< click to watch). As the Intro comes to an end, the show begins with the spectacular Gold dominated pyrotechnic display. The fans in Albany go wild as Good Ol’ JR Jim Ross and William Regal introduce us to the latest edition of Wednesday Night Turmoil. JR: “Welcome everyone to Turmoil. And what a night it was one week ago as Rob Van Dam was attacked by both Chris Jericho and the Big Show, only to be saved by Sheamus. No-one knows why the Celtic Warrior came to his aid, but thank God he did, or who knows what they would have done to RVD.” Regal: “He was sticking his nose in where it didn’t belong Jim. Chris Jericho simply wanted to soften Van Dam up ahead of their Triple Threat match at SummerSlam, and note that it was Sheamus, and not AJ Styles, who came to the rescue. That’s the real story here in my book.” JR goes on to tell us that we have a big night planned here in Georgia as well, as the home-state hero, AJ Styles, will be in action. “Last week saw Jericho pick Van Dam’s opponent, and tonight, it’s the turn of the Whole F’n Show to pick someone for The Phenomenal One to face in the main event. I can’t wait to see who it’s going to be!”
♫It’s a shame that they lost their heads, a careless man could wind up dead!♫ «< click to play). The music of Sheamus hits, and the Celtic Warrior comes down to the ring. JR and Regal wonder if he’s going to reveal the reasons behind his actions last week. Sheamus gets handed a microphone and waits as the crowd quiet down. He says: “It’s amazing how cynical people are. I help a fella out in a fight, and all I get is people asking me why? Why did I come down to this ring to help RVD? I told them I would explain all right here tonight. First of all, I have no affiliation with Van Dam. I couldn’t have given a monkey’s arse if it was him or anyone else getting pummeled in this ring last week. No, I came out here because of another man… the Big Show. That guy has dominated the Hardcore Division ever since he stepped into it. He beat Samoa Joe to win the Hardcore Title, then successfully defended it against him, and then countless others. He’s been unstoppable. But what’s the one thing that can stop a seemingly unstoppable giant? A fighting Irishman!” The crowd cheer as Sheamus goes on: “I got a phone call from Mick Foley a fortnight ago, asking me if I fancied being the next man to take on Show and his Title reign. So I downed my pint, beat my chest, and said ‘Fella, I’d be delighted to kick his arse all over any building on any night. I’m a destructive bastard at the best of times, but put me in a Hardcore rules match, and just see what I can do.’ Ladies and gentlemen I’ve become hungry for that Hardcore Title, and so Big Show, I stand here tonight to challenge you to a match for the Hardcore Championship at SummerSlam!” Sheamus waits in the ring, as JR says that this is a huge challenge, while Regal says he doubts Show would be willing to entertain such a vulgar challenger. We look set to find out as ♫Big Show’s music♫ «< click to play) hits, and the Hardcore Champion comes out to the stage. He stares down Sheamus, who insincerely apologizes for “kicking your arse last week” and then asks Show for his answer. Show: “You think that by hitting me with a cheap shot and then coming out here spouting your nonsensical Irish yammerings that I will just accept your challenge? Well Sheamus, you’re damn right I accept! You wanna piece of me? You wanna embarrass me and come out on top at my expense? Well, in case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve held this Title for many months now and I’ll take great pleasure in nailing a Hardcore rookie like you with the WMD!” The crowd boo as Sheamus stands there with a grin on his face. Big Show yells: “At SummerSlam Sheamus, I’m going to end your career! You hear me? I will end your career!” An angry Show exits as Sheamus smiles. He has his match for SummerSlam. JR gushes over what a great match that promises to be, as we see that Kazarian and Sin Cara are walking the halls ready to come out for our opening bout of the evening. It’s an Ultimate-X qualifying Tag Team match, and its next!
Yoshi Tatsu & Suicide vs. Kazarian & Sin Cara – Ultimate-X qualifier
We return to some high paced action as this X-Division Tag match is already under way. JR brings us into it by explaining, for those who don’t know, that KWF SummerSlam sees the traditional Ultimate-X match, where the X-Division Title dangles above the ring in the middle of a giant ‘X’, while eight superstars attempt to claim it. We have six competitors confirmed in the shape of current Champion Jay Lethal, former Champion Austin Aries, Christopher Daniels, Justin Gabriel, Low-ki and Amazing Red. Here, the winning team will take the final two spots, but who will it be? Suicide has started the match incredibly well, first of all dominating his fellow masked assassin Sin Cara, and then taking it to Kaz soon after. He hits a huge standing dropkick to send Kaz to the apron, and then an enziguiri as he flies off the top rope. He hooks the leg but Kaz kicks out at Two. Suicide makes the tag to Yoshi, who comes in and continues the assault, nailing Kaz with a series of kicks. He then goes for a spiral DDT, but Kaz pushes him off, before going for a clothesline, but Tatsu counters and hits a swinging neckbreaker. He covers and again gets Two. JR: “All four men want this chance to shine and claim Gold at SummerSlam, and Edge has given them their opportunity to fight for it here tonight. God I love the X-Division!” Regal concurs as Kaz fights back, hitting a shot to the gut of Tatsu, before an STO is followed by a springboard leg drop. He covers and gets One, gets Two, but no, Tatsu kicks out. Kaz tags Sin Cara back in, who comes in a uses his pace to make Yoshi dizzy. He flies off the ropes and catches the Japanese superstar with a series of moves, including an extended headscissors. Sin Cara is on fire here, and goes for La Mistica, only for Yoshi to throw him off halfway through the move. Cara lands on his feet, but Yoshi hits a Savate Kick to the face and hooks the leg for the cover, but Sin Cara kicks out at the last second. Yoshi tags in Suicide, who looks set to go for the Suicide Solution, but Sin Cara rolls through it and boots him in the face. He then leaps across to tag Kaz. He comes in and he and Suicide brawl. It looks like the masked man is getting the upper hand, and he gets Kaz in a predicament to set up the DOA. However, as he us perched on Kaz’s back set to nail it, Kaz grabs his legs and turns it into a *BAM!* Fade to Black! He covers and the crowd count along with the ref: ‘One!’ ‘Two!’ ‘Three!’
Winners: Kazarian and Sin Cara.
Kazarian and Sin Cara bump fists in triumph as they fought for one another here tonight, but JR mentions that they will be opponents come SummerSlam. Regal: “A quite excellent match there, but it’s merely an appetizer for what we can expect in Ultimate-X. I cannot wait for SummerSlam Jim.”
We come to our weekly recap of the previous week’s events on Turmoil. August 1st’s edition began with Kurt Angle versus Brodus Clay. Kurt won the match and afterward had a proposal for the General Manager to set up another bout between the Olympic Gold Medalist and the man who beat Angle at Sovereignty, CM Punk. We were treated to Chick action as Madison Rayne took on fan favorite Mickie James. We heard from Jay Lethal in his first interview as X-Division Champion. Panther set off on his mission to find Gambit. There was a 6-man Ultimate-X qualifier. Samoa Joe and Daniel Bryan took on the Latin American eXchange, and in the main event, Rob Van Dam took on Hardcore Champion Big Show after it was announced that RVD and AJ Styles would compete with Chris Jericho at KWF SummerSlam in a Triple Threat match for the KWF World Heavyweight Championship. To catch up with last week’s super show, click HERE to Read August 1st’s KWF Turmoil!
We’re with JR and Regal at the announcers table and they discuss how much they are looking forward to seeing Kurt Angle and CM Punk battle it out again. Regal: “I believe in Kurt all the way Jim. He gave Punk a second chance at Sovereignty, a second chance that he didn’t deserve in my eyes. Punk’s a loser. He’d been on a losing streak since before WrestleMania and he gets a couple of falls against the mighty Angle, and all of a sudden he thinks he’s best in the world again. I’m telling you, Kurt Angle’s going to teach Punk a lesson at SummerSlam.” JR says that CM Punk is very much a fan favorite and the fact that the Angle/Punk SummerSlam bout is set to be a Submission match, it may once and for all determine who the best in the world really is.
We go backstage where the camera crew is following the jean-shorts wrapped around the derriere of Mickie James. She walks at a pace and steps into the Skybox of KWF General Manager Edge. Madison Rayne darts an evil look in Mickie’s direction as she storms in and James tells Edge that she’s tired of Melina’s grudge against her. Edge says that he agrees that Melina’s got to get over this thing with Mickie and suggests that perhaps Melina simply needs another focus. Edge says that he needs a number one contender to compete against AJ Lee and the Women’s Championship at SummerSlam. Madison turns to Edge as if she can read his mind, but then she’s pleasantly surprised as Edge says that he’s going to kill two birds with one stone here. “Madison defeated you last week Mickie. And Angelina Love won the Canadian 4-way a few weeks ago. So here’s how it’s going to go down tonight; you wanna get your hands on Melina, you can. Madison, you’ve been asking for in-ring spotlight, you got it. And well, Angelina, I’m sure she wants to get back in for a Women’s Title shot. Tonight, you fine ladies are going to go at it in a Battle Royal. Mickie, Madison, Angelina and Melina – the match happens tonight and the winner will challenge for the Women’s Title at SummerSlam.” Mickie James thanks Edge and says that she’s happy she can take out Melina and make it to SummerSlam. James exits, saying that she’s going to warm up. Madison cuddles Edge, she thanks him too.
When we come back, the royal entrance of the KWF King of the Ring, Dolph Ziggler, is playing, as he and his new Queen, Kaitlyn, head to the ring. JR: “Well here comes the royal ‘couple’ as it were, but Kaitlyn still doesn’t look very happy with the arrangement.” Regal: “She doesn’t have to look happy JR. She’s King Dolph’s trophy wench. He won her fair and square from Panther at Sovereignty, and all she has to do is stand there and look pretty while the King eviscerates whomever his poor opponent is.” Dolph awaits his opponent while Kaitlyn takes a seat at ringside. ♫Ain’t no stoppin’ me now!♫ «< click to play). The Gold Standard comes out to a big cheer, as JR mentions how ironic it is that Dolph’s opponent here tonight is Shelton, a good friend and former Thundercat compadre of Panther. JR: “Shelton looks ready for a fight, and a chance to re-cement himself as a regular here in the KWF. This should be a great match.”
King Dolph w/ Queen Kaitlyn vs. Shelton Benjamin
The bell rings and these two elite athletes square off. JR reminds us that they faced one another only a few months ago, in a qualifier for the very King of the Ring Tournament that Dolph went on to win. “That was a five-star match, and we hope to be treated to the same here tonight.” It’s Dolph who gets the upper hand in the early going here, flooring Benjamin with a Russian leg sweep, before hitting a big elbow drop. The King struts and taunts the audience before picking Shelton up and then applying the Sleeper Hold. JR: “Dolph going for an early win here! But Benjamin gets free.” Shelton throws Dolph over his shoulder to the crowd’s delight. Ziggler soon gets the advantage back with a low dropkick to the knee, taking his opponent down. Dolph gets up and shows off in the direction of Kaitlyn, but she simply yawns and takes a book of Mr. T quotes out of her robe, before reading. Dolph looks frustrated at not being acknowledged by his Queen, but soon turns his attention back to his opponent. Shelton’s back to his feet now and both superstars go back and forth. Benjamin performs a nice suplex to take Ziggler over and down for Two. Dolph gets back into the match, applying a side headlock to attempt to wear Shelton down. This gives William Regal time to give his opinion on Queen Kaitlyn: “That strapping young lady is supposed to be a distraction for the opponent, not for the King. In all honesty, I’m beginning to have serious doubts just how dedicated she is to this role as Queen of the KWF.” JR: “She didn’t even want to be Queen. She was ‘procured’ like a prize at a fair when Dolph beat Panther at Sovereignty. Kaitlyn is a victim in all of this, and she’s clearly trying to show Dolph that she has no interest in performing whatever duties he expects her to.”
Meanwhile, Shelton has managed to get free of the headlock, and is hitting Dolph with a series of clotheslines, before attempting a Dragonwhip Kick. Dolph ducks it, but then runs straight into a Samoan Drop, before kicking out at Two. Shelton then props Ziggler on the top rope, before heading up for a superplex. Dolph punches him down, but Shelton quickly nips back up and onto the top rope in one leap, before throwing King Dolph off in a modified T-Bone Suplex. He crawls over as the fans cheer and drapes his arm over the King, but Dolph manages to get his foot on the rope at the count of Two. Shelton can’t believe it, but he keeps on Dolph. He hits him with rights, before throwing him against the ropes. He goes for a boot to the chest. Dolph stops and grabs Shelton’s boot to block, before swinging it around. Benjamin yet again goes for a Dragonwhip, but again Dolph ducks, and on this occasion, times his attack to perfection as he grabs Shelton from behind and nails the Zig-Zag! He hooks the leg and gets One, gets Two and gets the win.
Winner: King Dolph.
♫King Dolph’s music♫ «< click to play) plays as an exhausted King gets to his feet. He awaits his Queen, expecting her to enter and celebrate with him. However, she simply closes her book, and exits up the rampway. He calls after her, angered by her reluctance to join him, but she ignores his calls and leaves. JR: “A mighty impressive win for the King, but he is still unable to control his Queen. Perhaps he got more than he bargained for at Sovereignty William.” Regal: “He certainly did. Instead of an appreciative Queen, he got an ungrateful bit…” JR: (Interrupting) “I hear there’s something going on in the back, lets head there Live.”
A cameraman is heading down the hall where we soon see Alex Shelley is talking to someone. We overhear him asking someone whether they would be interested in being his Tag Team partner at SummerSlam. Shelley: “Last week, Edge gave me permission to find a worthy partner to replace Chris, and that we would get a KWF Tag Title shot at SummerSlam to make up for the shot the Machine Guns never got. So how about it man?” The camera gets a little closer to see who he’s talking to. We hear a voice say “Sure, why not.” It’s a familiar voice, and we have it confirmed as the mystery man steps into shot. It’s none other than… Samoa Joe! Shelley tells him he’s made the right choice. “You’ve been carrying Daniel Bryan the past couple of months, and after he cost you that match last week, it’s time you stepped up to team up with a real Tag Team legend. Those Dudleys won’t know what’s hit’em.” They shake hands as we hear JR say: “What? Samoa Joe is who Shelley has picked as his Tag partner for SummerSlam? Why is Joe turning his back on Daniel Bryan?” Regal: “As Alex said, Bryan cost himself and Joe their match last week. Joe needs Gold around his waist, and let’s face it, Alex Shelley is a better team player. He has all the Tag Team experience in the world. I still don’t think Shelley and the honorary Gun, Samoa Joe, will defeat the awesome Dudleys, but this turn of events is interesting, very interesting.”
We cut to a video segment. Panther appears on screen with the caption ‘Earlier this week’ underneath. The cat addresses the camera: “Right, into the second week of my hunt for Gambit. It is late on Saturday evening, and my search has brought me here to the Big Easy, New Orleans, the home town of Remy you-know-who. Some berk who found his phone led me here, and so I’m going to head to every bar in this city, because I’m sure that’s where I’ll find my old buddy. Oh and I also need to get out of here pretty sharpish. I broke the bed jumping up and down on it. What? It’s not every day Great Britain wins a gazillion Gold medals. Perhaps I’ll have a celebratory drink or two while I’m out on the town. Let’s go.” We cut to a montage of Panther heading around various bars in New Orleans. He asks a few people if they’ve seen Gambit, but no luck. He is then drinking free Southern Comfort’s that KWF fans in the bar have bought him, before heading on to the next place. He tries bar after bar, but gets no closer to finding Gambit. However, he keeps getting drinks of Southern Comfort bought for him. He’s clearly getting more and more tipsy as the night goes on, and we even see him opening up to complete strangers about how much he misses Kaitlyn. The excited KWF fans ask him about Why So Serious, but he backtracks. “Oops, I’ve said too much. Forget… foooorget.” The segment ends with Panther waking up outside a bar with a massive hangover, and no shoes. He turns to the camerman and says: “I bet I get blamed for this. Remy! Where are you? You elusive bastard!” The caption reads ‘To be continued’ as we cut back to the commentary table in the arena. Regal: “Well, I can certainly sympathize with the boy. I also got a little gazeboed after Saturday’s Olympic triumphs for Team GB.” JR: “Well he’s supposed to be on a mission to find Gambit, not out drinking and waking up outside bars.” Regal: “Be fair Jim, if he’s going to find Gambit anywhere, it’s a dingy bar, but not in New Orleans it appears.”
Christian Cage & Maryse vs. ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal & AJ Lee – Mixed Tag match
The crowd are on their feet here in Albany, Georgia and we’re set for Mixed Tag action. The comms explain that the rules for the match mean that the women face only the women and the men face the men, but a gender switch has to occur whenever a tag is made. The X-Division Champion Jay Lethal has the fans in his corner as he waves his hands a-la the late great Macho Man and he ties it up with KWF’s Intercontinental Champion. Christian performs a side headlock and Lethal sends him against the ropes. When Cage comes back, Lethal takes him over in a quick arm drag. Christian gets up and Jay goes at him, but Cage evades a clothesline, counters and takes Lethal down with a snapmare. Both men get up at the same time and the crowd applaud as a stand-off occurs. Lethal poses and waves his arms again, pointing to the Women’s Champion to signal a tag. The crowd cheer as AJ comes in, but as Christian exits to his corner, Maryse flicks her hand and mouths off in French. Regal: “I love Maryse’s outlook on life. She will do as she pleases and doesn’t care about anyone or anything.” JR: “Aw come on, does as she pleases? She’s just afraid of getting in the ring with the Women’s Champion in my view.” Christian and Maryse argue and so Cage steps back in the ring and tags so that he’s the one that’s legal. AJ tags Lethal back in, but takes exception to Maryse and Lee darts across the ring, under the legs of Christian and slams her shoulder into Maryse on the apron. The French Miss falls to ringside. Meanwhile, a battle ensues between Lethal and Cage. The referee’s lost control as we go to commercials.
When we return we see that Christian Cage has control of Jay Lethal with a bodyscissor submission administered in the centre of the ring. The Chicks are back in their corner and the comms go split screen to show us what occurred during the break. We see that the referee went to ringside to split up AJ and Maryse and meanwhile in the ring, Christian drove Lethal shoulder-first through the turnbuckles and into the ring-post. Back Live we see and hear the fans clap at AJ bangs on the turnbuckles. Lethal maneuvers to get to the ropes. Christian lets the lock loose, but pulls Lethal away from the rope for a cover. He gets One, Two – no, Lethal kicks out. Cage stands and goes to make a tag, but Maryse wants none of it. She flicks her hair toward him and the crowd laugh at Christian’s expense. Meanwhile, Jay Lethal is able to get to his corner and he successfully tags AJ. Lee jumps off the ring apron to sprint around the ring and get to Maryse’s corner and she yanks her off the apron so that Maryse’s pretty face bounces off the edge of the ring. AJ goes wild, finally legally being able to get into this match. Christian holds his hands up, not offering help to Maryse at all as AJ gets her opponent into the ring. Maryse is on her backside and she kicks thin air as she moans and curses in French, but she’s very quickly shut up as AJ runs against the rope and nails her with the Shining Wizard! Lee covers for One! Two! And Three!
Winners: AJ Lee and ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal.
♫AJ’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and she’s embraced by Jay Lethal as the referee then gives them both their respective Championship Belts and raises both their hands. Christian exits quietly, shaking his head as he walks up the ramp. JR and Regal take us through some history, telling us that Jay Lethal was actually AJ’s trainer before she became a premier superstar. Regal: “In fact I think they may have been in a relationship Jim.” JR: “If you’re right then they must have ended on good terms Mister Regal. They were on great form tonight and AJ must’ve loved getting a piece of Maryse after what the French Miss had once put her Chickbuster friend Kaitlyn through here on KWF Blogs.”
We cut backstage where AJ Styles is stretching and warming up for his main event bout tonight. All of a sudden he stops and smirks as someone approaches him. It’s none other than Rob Van Dam. They square up to one another, as Van Dam asks Styles if he saw his match against Big Show last week. Styles: “I did, and you looked pretty damn impressive. I mean, he did squash you for a fair while there, but you held your own against a Giant Hardcore Champion, and that sure ain’t easy to do.” Van Dam accepts the compliment. RVD: “Did you see the bit at the end though, where Jericho came out, and they double teamed me for a while there? Thank God Sheamus came out when he did huh?” Styles smirks again, and knows exactly what Van Dam is driving at. “Look, I know that you’re pissed at me for not showing up to help you, but, and I don’t mean this to sound too harsh, but I couldn’t care less. I respect you a hell of a lot as a competitor, but you were in trouble facing two guys instead of one. Well guess what you’re in for at SummerSlam? A Triple Threat match tends to be the same thing. If you can’t handle Jericho and Show, then how do you expect to handle Jericho and The Phenomenal One?” RVD nods but doesn’t respond. AJ then asks him for a hint as to who he’s facing tonight. “Who did you pick for me then? Zack Ryder? The Absolute Lashley? Abdullah the Butcher? Who?” Van Dam just smiles and says “Everything will soon become very familiar pal” before patting him on the shoulder and exiting.
Elsewhere in the back, Daniel Bryan is anxiously walking the halls. He eventually finds Samoa Joe. “Hey! What gives Joe? I just heard from Gabriel that you’ve agreed to be Alex Shelley’s partner at SummerSlam. Is that true?” Joe nods “Yeah it’s true.” Bryan: “So what, we lose one time and you bail on me? We had the makings of a great Tag Team. We very nearly became Champions at Sovereignty. And you screw me over just because you think something better comes along?” Joe: “What’s wrong Danny-Boy? You’re acting like a little bitch? You lost that match last week, not me. You’re the weak link of our team, so I replaced you with a stronger one. Don’t take it personally man, it’s just how the business is.” Bryan: “Don’t take it personally? You have screwed me out of a place at SummerSlam! If I’d known you were going to turn your back on me, I could have tried to qualify for the Ultimate-X match, but now it’s too late. So thank you Joe, thanks a lot. Asshole!” Bryan storms off, leaving a less than bothered Samoa Joe to shake his head. JR: “A controversial decision by Samoa Joe. Time will tell if it pays off, but one thing is for sure, he and Alex Shelley have royally pissed off one Daniel Bryan.” Regal: “Do you think they’ll be called the Joe-tor City Machine Guns, nyah-ha. Ahem, err, sorry.”
We see a close-up of two female faces. As we zoom out we see that it’s Angelina Love and Velvet Sky, The Beautiful People, doing their make-up. They’re sat at a mirror and they have a selection of make-up in front of them, but soon a volley-ball splats onto their table and their powders/foundations and creams go everywhere! The camera zooms out further and it’s revealed that this make-up unit is on a beach. We watch as Edge’s Personal Assistant Madison Rayne walks past The Beautiful People laughing. She’s wearing a bikini and as she walks along the beach she says that KWF’s SummerSlam will be an event never to be forgotten. On the beach in the background we watch as various X-Division superstars seem to be playing beach soccer. Madison looks out to the sea where AJ Styles is on a boogey-board. The beach scene becomes busier and busier and soon all the fun turns into a good old fashioned brawl – one which happens to lead to Madison’s bikini bra to be slipped off! Finally we see KWF General Manager Edge in a beach chair. He has sunglasses on and he’s watching his locker-room trash the beach. He sips from his drink and smiles at the camera: “Join us for SummerSlam folks. August 19th 2012 – only at KWF Blogs!” The scene fades out to Madison Rayne covering her private parts and Edge asking her for a re-fill.
Back Live, Justin Roberts announces that the following match-up is a KWF Chicks Battle Royal and the winner will go on to challenge AJ Lee for the Women’s Championship at SummerSlam! The crowd applaud and they’re ready as the first Chick to make her entrance is the General Manager’s personal assistant, Madison Rayne. Rayne is booed by the majority of the crowd, but Regal points out that there is a portion of the audience that are cheering because, in his opinion, Madison has become more likeable because she’s so close to the GM. Melina is booed roundly as she enters, but the male portion of the audience cheer as she makes her splits entrance under the bottom rope of the ring. The Beautiful People are out next and similarly, they are applauded as they step through the ring-ropes and pause to shake their asses. Mickie James gets the biggest cheer of all the competitors and we’re about set to determine the next number one contender for the KWF Women’s Championship.
Madison Rayne vs. Melina vs. Angelina Love w/ Velvet Sky vs. Mickie James – Battle Royal for number one contendership to the Women’s Title
The bell rings and we instantly see Melina exit the ring because Mickie James darts after her and looks to put an end to their rivalry. Madison Rayne and Angelina Love are left and Love smiles arrogantly, pointing to her chin as if to signal that Rayne can have a free shot. Madison obliges and she swings a right hand and Love is taken aback. She becomes instantly angry and she swings for Rayne, but Madison ducks and turns to clothesline Love down instead. Angelina gets up, but again Rayne takes her down. Velvet Sky squeals and shouts as she climbs the apron. This proves a distraction to Rayne and Love takes this chance to kick her in the knees and taker her down to the canvas. The comms tell of the extended history between Angelina, Madison and Velvet Sky. JR: “Love and Sky were the original Beautiful People and they adopted Madison Rayne into their regime as a further cog in their dominant machine.” Regal: “But they didn’t need her Jim. They never needed her nor did they need that Lacey Von Erich girl that had a cameo in TNA. Miss Love and the lovely Velvet had enough as a duo to do what they wanted and dominate Women’s wrestling. That was proven to be correct right here on KWF Blogs where they dominated the Women’s Championship throughout the back end of 2010 and the majority of 2011. Going into WrestleMania this year they were the complete package. Still running our Chicks Division and still dominating the Women’s Gold.” JR: “Yes, but the key term is they. They took control of Women’s wrestling and they dominated it. It wasn’t until they had equal opposition in AJ and Kaitlyn that the numbers were finally evened out and AJ was able to win the Women’s Championship. A Title she’s had since Mania by the way – and she’s done it on her own since. Kaitlyn’s not at ringside every week and the Chickbusters aren’t in each others pockets. The Beautiful People were dominant, there’s no doubting that, but they cheated to get where they were for the best part of that dominant period.”
The match at hand has gone on with the contest sectioned between Love and Rayne having their own battle and Melina and Mickie James going at it in and around the ring. By the way the match goes we can see that a hatred has grown between Mickie and Melina and JR says that he still can’t believe how personally Melina took it that Mickie was unable to see her whilst she was out injured. Regal: “Oh come on Jim, how many times have we had this argument? Melina is the innocent party here, and she’s right to feel neglected. Mickie James could have always sent her a card or flowers or something. Mickie was the only good thing Mel had left in the KWF after the Wolfpac split up, but no, she’s left to rot instead.” JR: “But the road is long William, and I’m sure anyone can see that. Mickie James was busy with the KWF, with TNA House Shows, not to mention her music career. She had a lot going on, and I’m sure Melina was always in her thoughts. But for Melina to come back and cost Mickie matches and Title opportunities over and over again, it’s out of line and Melina’s got to get over it.” All four Chicks are in the ring and they’re all battered and bruised, each backing off into a corner. Mickie James is the bravest and most determined. She stands up to go toward the centre of the ring and she steps to taunt each Chick in every corner; “Come on!” she yells and the crowd love it as none of Madison, Angelina or Melina go toward her. The arena begins to rumble as the crowd clap their hands and stomp their feet. The Chick to go toward Mickie is Madison Rayne, but wait, she’s tripped as Velvet Sky reaches under the bottom rope to take her down. Angelina Love goes over and pounces on Madison from behind, but the crowd cheer as Mickie then comes to the rescue. She yanks Love off Madison and the two exchange rights. Melina targets Mickie from behind, but James sees her coming and instead Mel goes and clotheslines Angelina Love down to her backside. Velvet Sky yells and screams at Melina for her mistake, but this allows Madison Rayne to clutch Mel into a pinning predicament. She gets One, gets Two, but no, Melina kicks out.
The match goes on and the comms are in awe over the resilience of all four women. They remind us that this is a Battle Royal elimination match and so far, there is yet to be even one fall. This discussion seems to ignite a flurry though and we watch as Mickie James performs her Mickie-DT to conquer Melina and eliminate her out of the match. Angelina Love meanwhile is at ringside, regrouping with Velvet Sky and it seems that Love is happy to let Madison and Mickie go at it, but the Chicks in the ring think different. Madison exits the ring one side and Mickie the other. The Beautiful People are cornered and we watch as the referee tells Velvet Sky to “get outta here!” Velvet is banished from ringside, finally, and now it’s down to Love against Mickie and Madison. Regal says that this is not fair because Love is being targeted. Angelina makes a run for it back in the ring, but Mickie James is quick to get after her and we watch as James grabs Love to place her over her knee. The crowd love it as Mickie smiles and begins giving Angelina Love a well deserved spanking. “Take her to the woodshed!” chuckles JR. Regal says: “This is ridiculous.” However, all of a sudden we watch as Madison Rayne casually gets into the ring and she runs full speed at Mickie and levels her right in the temple with a running boot! The audience ‘Ohhhh’ gasp at the impact, as Madison kicks Love aside and covers Mickie for One, Two and Three! The crowd boo as James is eliminated and the comms concur that it’s every women for herself. Madison sees Angelina Love down and Love is rubbing her behind after such a spanking. As she gets up we see that Madison is the one to point to her chin now. She’s offering the same favor to Love as Love did earlier in the match. Angelina doesn’t swing a right hand though, instead she runs at Rayne to attempt a Botox Injection, but it’s telegraphed and Madison ducks the move to turn and kick Angelina in the gut. She gets her into position as JR yells “Rayne Drop! Rayne Drop!” and *BAM* she nails it! Love is down and Madison Rayne covers for the match-winning Three-count!
Winner: Madison Rayne.
♫Madison’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and the crowd respond indifferently. The comms recap the highlights of the match and meanwhile Madison has her hand raised as the new number one contender to the Women’s Championship. Regal says that he’s disappointed not to have seen The Beautiful People come out on top, but the comms concur that this is Madison’s first real chance at the Women’s Championship and she’ll get her shot against AJ Lee at KWF SummerSlam. Madison poses and waves to the audience as she exits.
Edge is walking the halls backstage and he’s approached by R-Truth. Truth purposely stands in the GM’s way and Edge says: “What’s up Truth? I gotta get to my Skybox to see the main event, can ya let me through?” Truth frowns at the GM and looks down into a bit of space next to him. He says: “Jimmy, the GM wants us ta let him through.” Edge shakes his head as Truth continues talking to his invisible friend Little Jimmy. “Our GM is a good GM, yes he is, but Little Jimmy, before we let him pass, we have to tell him that he’s making a big mistake with what he’s doing here on KWF Blogs.” Edge: “Truth, I don’t have time for this, what mistake? What are you talking about?” Truth talks to Edge: “You’re makin’ a mistake in calling back Why So Serious to this here company Edge. Oh dat’s a big mistake. Little Jimmy agrees, dontcha Little Jimmy?” The camera pans to the space next to Truth and of course, there’s no response. Truth continues: “Ya see Edge, you can run this show and you can have things your way at a certain extent of control. But if Panther finds Gambit and if Why So Serious eventually come back here, you’ll lose all-a-dat control Edge. You’ll lose this show and everybody will point the finger at you because it was your decision.” Truth passes and holds Little Jimmy’s hand. He walks off down the hall and shouts: “Be careful what you’re wishin’ for Edge. Callin’ that circus back is a bad idea!” Edge shakes his head and walks the other way murmuring to himself: “Even a whack job and an invisible kid are telling me not to bring back Why So Serious. For God’s sakes.” The comms voice over that KWF Turmoil’s main event is up next. JR: “Who’s Rob Van Dam going to pick as AJ Styles’ opponent?! We find out next Live here on Turmoil!”
We come back from our final commercial break of the evening and we’re just in time as we hear ♫Get Ready To Fly!♫ «< click to play). The tron rises, the shimmering golden pyro-rain falls and out steps the Phenomenal A… J… Styyyyllllleeesss! Georgia goes nuts for their home state hero and the comms can barely hear themselves speak. JR: “AJ Styles never lost the KWF World Championship via pinfall or submission. He will get his opportunity at getting that Title back at SummerSlam, but tonight he’s got a main event match against an opponent chosen by Rob Van Dam.” Regal: “Don’t forget Jim that RVD didn’t exactly have his full match as number one contender for the top Title Belt in all of Professional Wrestling. But let me tell you, there’s heat building between Van Dam and Styles. That can only help current Champion Chris Jericho when it comes to his Title defense at SummerSlam.” Styles is in the ring and he waits. Everyone’s attention is turned toward the rising tron as we await his opponent. AJ tries to remain focused, bouncing in the ring, staying loose. The camera zooms in on the stage. Justin Roberts signals: “And his opponent…” There’s another long pause and Styles stops bouncing. He looks toward the stage. Regal: “Well, come on, who is it?!”… ♫Music hits♫ «< click to play). JR: “Oh my God.” Regal: “No way!” The comms can’t believe it, the crowd can’t believe it as the tron rises fully and out steps John Cena into the Albany Civic Center! Regal: “Van Dam picked Cena!?” JR: “I don’t believe this.” Regal: “Van Dam picked Cena!?” JR: “I’m lost for words, this is, this is unfathomable.” John Cena is indeed the chosen opponent by Rob Van Dam for AJ Styles tonight. The comms remind us that Cena hasn’t been on KWF Blogs since losing the number one contenders Fatal Four Way match at KWF’s Great American Bash, a match which RVD won. Regal: “He was last KWF Champ going into WrestleMania – where he lost to AJ Styles.” JR: “Indeed William. Styles and the Doctor of Thuganomics have had a storied rivalry here on KWF Blogs and tonight, Albany gets a treat as that rivalry is renewed. What a main event this promises to be. A WrestleMania rematch!”
AJ Styles vs. John Cena
It’s gone from a silent waiting to pure pandemonium here in AJ Styles’ home state. The crowd are on their feet and these two blockbuster superstars lock it up after the opening bell. Cena is bigger, stronger and he forces Styles to the corner. The referee tries to get in between the two to force a break, but Cena jabs a left hand in Styles gut, a right hand, another left – closed fists smashing Styles’ ribs and now the ref pulls Cena’s arm to tell him off. AJ Styles bursts out the corner with a forearm. He kicks Cena in the gut before backing up the turnbuckles and leaping to sunset flip over the back of the Doctor and he clutches him to the canvas for One on the count, for Two – but a quick kick-out by Cena and both men are up. JR: “These two prime athletes are picking up their intense rivalry right where they left off and Mister Regal dare I say, with nothing on the line, no Title, no stipulation, is John Cena the favorite in this match-up?” Regal: “He might be Jim, he should be, but in the time Cena and Styles were fighting for the KWF Gold, it was AJ Styles who was ever the victor, with Cena only beating him once back at Survivor Series last year. Now this is a John Cena that has never cared about the fans or cared about what anyone’s thought of him and we can see that from his demeanor in this match. He is here to not only hurt AJ Styles, but beat him. If he does that then Cena’s back in Title contention for sure.” The match goes on and it’s like a game of chess. Both these superstars know one another so well, they know each others moves, they know how to counter and, JR says: “The Styles/Cena rivalry is one of those that has made KWF Blogs as popular as it is today. A unique dynamic, a fantastic following of AJ Styles and the converse hatred toward Cena. Styles versus Cena has become a classic and it’s only here in the Keystone Wrestling Federation.” Edge watches from his Skybox as this outstanding main event unfolds. We see that both men are going for victory and Cena has Styles grounded now. He’s climbing over his back to perhaps lock on the STFU, but no, AJ’s fast on the canvas and he manages to get himself under the bottom rope and out to the apron. The crowd cheer as AJ sets for his springboard forearm, but Cena is up and he swings a discus-like elbow right on the mush of Styles. This sends AJ to the floor at ringside and now the Doctor taunts as JR fears this could be the beginning of the end: “That elbow has knocked Styles out the park and Cena can take the match at his pace now.”
Cena exits the ring and AJ’s on dream street as he stands up. Cena mocks him, taunts him as he steps around Styles. The crowd boo as Cena then grabs AJ to his feet and locks him for a suplex on the mat! AJ’s body crashes down and boos echo around the arena as Cena rolls in and out the ring to break the referee’s count. Cena is nonchalant as he picks Styles to his feet. He sees the steel stairs and looks to Irish-whip AJ toward them, but as he does, AJ jumps to take a step off the top of the stairs and he flips himself backward to clutch Cena’s head and drive him down with a reverse DDT! JR: “My God what a move! That was absolutely phenomenal ladies and gentlemen, that is AJ Styles to a tee!” Regal: “With moves like that Jim, even I admit that I’m impressed. Jesus, how on earth this man is locked in a pregnancy storyline in TNA is beyond me.” Styles and Cena are both down and the referee’s count is on Five. He yells “Six!” and AJ’s stirring. He’s still groggy from that massive elbow to his temple, but he’s getting up. He sees that the ref’s count is on “Seven!” but he’s not getting into the ring, he’s picking up Cena. Regal: “What are you doing you bloody idiot?! Get in the ring and win the match!” JR: “This is what kind of man AJ is William. He’s got heart, the desire and passion of a true Champion. It’s exactly this kind of intestinal fortitude that had AJ Styles defeat John Cena at WrestleMania in the first place. The entire world appreciates the fight in this man and by God, what a competitor he is!” AJ manages to pick Cena’s weight toward the apron and then as the ref’s count hits “Nine!” both men claw themselves under the bottom rope and into the ring. AJ gets to his feet and soon Cena’s up too. Cena swings a right hand, but misses as AJ kicks him in the hip. Cena swings again, but AJ evades, kicking him in the ribs. Cena gets angry and swings again, but AJ ducks, turns and goes for the Pele – but Cena catches him! Regal: “Come on, FU, do it John!” Cena tries, but can’t hook Styles properly and so AJ manages to get out of Cena’s grip and slide down his back. He pushes Cena toward the corner, running with him as Cena slams chest-first into the turnbuckles and as AJ then goes back, he takes Cena with him and goes under his legs to have his momentum take Cena to the canvas for a modified pin, AJ has a bridge for leverage and Cena’s kicking his legs, but his shoulders are pinned and The Phenomenal One gets Three!
Winner: AJ Styles.
♫Get Ready To Fly!♫ «< click to play) hits and the crowd go wild as their home state hero defeats The Doctor of Thuganomics! AJ Styles has done it in a herculean effort, a victory that will fill AJ with confidence as he heads to SummerSlam to compete for the KWF World Heavyweight Championship. AJ is on his back, exhausted from this match and it’s Cena who’s the first to his feet. The crowd still chant AJ’s name, but his music stops as we see John Cena stand questionably close to Styles. The referee backs off and bizarrely, Cena holds out his hand. AJ takes it and Cena helps him to his feet. JR: “A classy move. A show of respect, that’s fantastic to see and I’m impressed with John Cena here.” But, not for long as Cena has helped AJ to his feet, but he then pulls him right into an FU! Cena mouths off to the downed Styles and the crowd boo like hell that Cena has been so petty in defeat. Regal: “Haha, a show of respect? Never! Not from Cena. The man’s just lost, he’s not going to leave on that, he’s going to stick a big FU to AJ Styles. Haha, brilliant!” JR: “Oh come on, after such a wonderful main event. A classic as we anticipated. Did Cena have to do this? Did you need to stoop so low John?! For God’s sakes!” Cena exits the ring to a booing crowd and as he taunts Thuganomic style up the ramp, we see that Chris Jericho is walking down the other way. Jericho and Cena pass one another without any acknowledgement and Jericho gets into the ring. He places the KWF Championship Belt on the canvas and he then grabs AJ Styles by the legs to administer the Walls of Jericho! The audience boo like hell, they’ve seen their hero win in such an amazing effort, but now, not only has Styles been humiliated with an FU from Cena, but Wednesday Night Turmoil is ending with a Walls of Jericho from the reigning KWF World Champion. The crowd begin chanting for an appearance from Rob Van Dam and JR pleads for someone to get out here. Regal: “AJ made it abundantly clear that it’s every man for himself Jim. Van Dam took it last week and now Styles is taking it from the World Champion. Haha, this is great. Chris Jericho will retain at SummerSlam just on RVD and Styles fighting it out. It’s brilliant. He’s one of the most intelligent men in the business. He became Champion that way and he’ll retain the Title in the same manner. Brilliant!” Jericho continues to crank back on the Walls as referees, security and medics finally flood the ring and Wednesday Night Turmoil fades out.
