♫Edgenesday Night Turmoil’s opening video♫ «< click to watch) plays and we come Live into the Cajundome here in Lafayette, Louisiana. Jim Ross and Sir William Regal welcome us in on commentary and review the conclusion to last week’s Turmoil. JR: “It was a night of amazing matches, but none more so perhaps than the main event between Intercontinental Champion Randy Orton and World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles.” Regal: “Yes Jim, it was a great match, but the spotlight at the end of the night was on neither man. It was The Miz who everyone was talking about. He interfered in the match – and he targeted Mister Orton.” The comms tell that The Miz will have to face repercussions tonight when he takes on one half of the Tag Team Champions, Louisiana’s own resident Cajun, Gambit. We’re told that Edge has scheduled a Cutting Edge special tonight – but we don’t know why. JR: “The Icon Sting is in the building as well and he will be out to address all of us later. I can’t wait to see what he has to say. Also folks, we already know from last week that it’s going to be Styles versus Punk Part II at KWF Starrcade, but these two men will meet in the main event tonight, by way of a tag team match and William, I wonder who they’re going to choose as their respective partners?” Regal: “I’m not sure Jim. It’s going to be good though. Any time AJ and Punk compete, even I will admit, it’s a sight to behold. I still watch (read) back to KWF Survivor Series and I can’t believe how amazing that main event was. In fact the whole pay-per-view was arguably one of KWF’s best of the year!” (Read the full KWF Survivor Series pay-per-view by clicking HERE).
During the comms’ introduction to the show, Low-ki has made his entrance. ♫Jack Evans’ music♫ «< click to play) hits and we’re kicking off Turmoil with X-Division action! The fans are on their feet and we hold our breath as we get set for what’s set to be a rollercoaster! JR: “Ladies and gentlemen we have so much coming up for you tonight, but we’re starting with Low-ki versus Jack Evans – this is Wednesday Night Turmoil!”
Low-ki vs. Jack Evans
The bell rings and both men circle one another. Low-ki blows his fists and gets into a stance, ready for battle. Evans smirks and performs no-armed cartwheel. The crowd are split in half as Evans sets to lock up, but Low-ki sidekicks him in the thigh. He kicks him with the other leg in the waist. Then a left jab to the stomach, right to the face, a spinning backhand to the face and Evans goes down. The crowd are taken aback by Low-ki’s explosive no-nonsense start and Evans gets up, shakes off the cobwebs and now he gets into a fighting stance. Low-ki goes toward him, Evans goes for a single-hand-stand side-volley, but Low-ki blocks it and instantly gets Evans into a headlock. Evans forces him toward the ropes and sends him fast against the far side. As Low-ki comes back, Evans sprints toward him and performs an outstanding running headscissors! Evans lands on his feet as he flips out of the move and Low-ki flips and bounces toward the bottom rope. The crowd cheer as they take in the action and the comms tell of how athletic and mobile these wrestlers are. JR: “These two right here folks, they’re two highlight reels of X-Division wrestling. Over 2012 we’ve had Daniel Bryan as X-Division Champion, Jay Lethal, Austin Aries and Christopher Daniels. There’s a vast array of competition and a number of different wrestling styles. But in Low-ki and Jack Evans, you know what you’re getting; it’s flips, trips and kicks – amazing high octane high adrenaline action, and it’s right here on KWF Blogs!” The match goes back and forth in the very manner it started and it seems like the moves become riskier as the contest goes longer. Low-ki has Evans on his knees at ringside. He kicks hard in Evans’ chest and then waves his arms and bounces on the spot. Regal: “He’s quite a character Jim. He’s a warrior and by the way he stands and the manner in which he competes, he’s like a fighter out of some Japanese Manga comic book.” JR: “I’m sure Low-ki would take that as a compliment because he’s plied much of his career over in Japan. He’s intense alright, but look at Jack Evans, a never-say-die devil-may-care attitude and he’s fighting back right here!” The action’s back in the ring and Evans evades Low-ki’s attempt at Warriors Way (double footstomp from off the top turnbuckle) and he gets up to hit a front flip heel kick. That has Low-ki groggy and Evans looks to capitalize. He runs to the ropes, gets to the ring apron and leaps atop the top rope to springboard back in the ring and take his opponent down with a spinning tornado kick! The crowd go wild as he runs against the ropes and comes back with a 450 splash! Regal: “Jesus! What the hell was that?!” JR: “A running 450! Amazing! How can he get the air to do that? My God William, that was out of this world!” Evans isn’t done, using his momentum and the screams from the fans, he heads to the top turnbuckle and taunts cockily before leaping off and “Ohhhh my Godd!” yells JR as Regal gasps “630! That was 630!” and the referee counts One on the cover, Two and Three! Jack Evans wins it!
Winner: Jack Evans.
The crowd go wild as ♫Jack Evans’ music♫ «< click to play) hits and the comms review replays of this absolute blockbuster of a match to kick-off Turmoil. Evans looks exhausted, but doesn’t hold back on performing a front flip and then a back flip to entertain the fans. Regal: “He’s an arrogant little bugger, but wow, I have to admit he can back it up Jim. How does one even attempt those kind of moves?” JR: “That’s the X-Division for you Mister Regal and look, there’s the respect.” Evans pulls Low-ki to his feet and the two pat one another on the arm as the crowd applaud both men’s efforts.
We come back from a commercial break, able to catch our breath and we see that Evans has stuck around in the ring. He has a mic in hand and the audience listen as Evans says that he’s glad to be here in the Keystone Wrestling Federation. “I made my debut here when KWF went to Las Vegas for their annual Casino Warfare extravaganza. The boss called me to give me an opportunity and I took it. Since then, I’ve had some of the best matches of my career – and that can only happen here in the KWF!” The crowd cheer as Evans says that he’d like to thank the fans: “When I get going, the way you guys cheer is fuel for me you know. I don’t have any source of adrenaline without you and I gotta say, as crazy as some of my moves can be, I wouldn’t risk breaking my neck if it weren’t for all of you.” The crowd applaud as Evans tries to go on, but he’s interrupted by the ♫music of the X-Division Champion♫ «< click to play). Rey Mysterio and Konnan receive a chorus of boos as they enter and Konnan, with mic in hand, says that Evans needs to get out of Rey’s ring before he risks breaking a neck for real at the hands of Rey Mysterio. The crowd boo as Konnan barks in Spanish and as he and Rey ascend the ring, Jack Evans backs out. Konnan: “That’s right! You get out of our ring and you don’t come back ‘till you’re asked to, you hear me white boy?” Evans doesn’t respond and just keeps walking up the ramp. Regal: “Wow, what presence from Rey Mysterio.” JR: “Ah well it’s Rey and Konnan out here. Evans can’t take them both on. He did the smart thing to leave.” Konnan turns his attention to the main arena camera and he barks out how this is no longer Jack Evans match-time, it’s Rey Mysterio TV-time! The crowd boo like hell as Konnan hands Rey the mic. JR: “Mysterio has been fairly silent since taking the guidance of Konnan and more specifically since he turned his back on all his fans.” Rey waits for the boos to calm, “Que tal?” he says, but the crowd continue booing. Konnan yanks the mic off him and angrily demands silence so that the Champion can speak. This doesn’t go down well and boos continue to rain over Mysterio’s parade. He takes the mic back and has to raise his voice over Louisiana. “None of you appreciate me do you? None of you gringos, none of you pathetic ugly specimens of United States society, (he spits on the canvas), you’re all a disgrace! Why? For all those years I put my boots on, I put my attire on, my mask for what? For all of you? Why did I do anything for you?! What a waste of my life.” Konnan talks to Rey off-mic and consoles him, as he genuinely seems upset that he ‘wasted his life’ on wrestling fans. Konnan barks that the X-Division and all the wrestling fans have to realize now, realize that Rey Mysterio is the Champion and realize that no man will defeat Rey for the Title. Konnan insults the audience in his native tongue and he and Rey eventually leave to even louder boos than when they arrived. William Regal says that he applauds Rey’s stance and says that any man is going to find it hard to defeat a superstar that is so bitter as Rey. JR finishes: “Rey Mysterio is a shell of a man that I once knew. He used to fly around for the fans, he used to have such a bond with young kids who wore his mask to honor him. And now look, what is it Rey, are you jealous? Jealous that the very same fans that once cheered you, now cheer the likes of Jack Evans, Low-ki, Red, Lethal? I mean come on, it’s wrestling’s evolution. The cruiserweights were always going to evolve. And Jack Evans for one has been in Mexico, working for under AAA and that’s a place littered with high-flying athletes. Rey should be glad how far the KWF has brought that Title. But no, he carries it as if he’s still the gold standard.” Regal: “Well he is Jim. As much as one may disagree with how he turned his back on the fans, he is still the Champion, still overcoming all the young talent in the locker room and d’you know what, that bitterness you speak of, I think it drives him. He channels his resentment and that makes him an excellent Champion in my view.”
Last week was yet another huge night on KWF Blogs as Turmoil saw all the fallout from KWF Survivor Series. The new KWF Champion AJ Styles showed off his Gold and thanked the man he won it from, CM Punk, who came out to discuss matters with the Phenomenal One. The conclusion was that there will be a rematch at Starrcade, first fall to a finish. Both men went on to wrestle that night as Punk defeated Austin Aries and Styles fought in the main event with Randy Orton, though that match ended early as The Miz interrupted to attack the Intercontinental Champion. Elsewhere, Melina and Rey Mysterio beat Kaitlyn and Panther in mixed-tag action thanks to an interruption from Konnan, Mr. Anderson and Christian Cage faced off once again with the winner being granted a Title opportunity by Edge, with Anderson victorious. Queen Madison Rayne screamed blue murder after losing her Women’s Title at the Survivor Series pay-per-view. Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe had some strong words about their problems stemming from their lack of teamwork during their Survivor Series elimination tag match. This led to Edge putting them in a tag match on Turmoil where they lost to the new Champions Gambit and Jeff ‘The Joker’ Hardy of Why So Serious. We also saw the Turmoil return of The Phenom, The UnderTaker. The Lord of Darkness addressed the reasons behind his shock attack on The Absolute Lashley at Survivor Series, stating that he has decided that his ‘experiment’ has not worked, and Lashley has greatly disappointed him since he lost the KWF Title several months ago.

We head backstage where Jeremy Borash is standing by to interview the duo of Frankie Kazarian and the former X-Division Champion, Christopher Daniels. He asks the Fallen Angel how he feels after relinquishing his Title to Rey Mysterio at Survivor Series. “I feel like I have been robbed JB. There was a thief present at Survivor Series, and because of that masked b*stard, Sin Cara, I no longer have my Belt. First he stole Frankie’s Flux Capacitor, and then attacked him after he hit me with a cheap shot, allowing Rey to get the pin. Sin Cara is a dirty thief who should have kept his nose out of my business.” JB asks him if he plans on invoking his rematch at Starrcade. Daniels: “No, I don’t. I don’t plan on having my rematch while Rey is the Champion. As long as he and Konnan hold that Belt, any match would practically be a handicap. I’ll bide my time and take my rematch when I’m good and ready.” Kaz butts in and changes the topic back to Sin Cara, stating that once and for all, he and Daniels are going to unmask him as the ‘fraud’ that he is after they destroy him and Yoshi Tatsu in the ring later on tonight. They exit as JB hands it back to ringside.
We see that the ring has been carpeted and decorated for The Cutting Edge. The KWF General Manager makes his entrance to a huge ovation, and once he’s finished playing to the crowd, he gets on the mic and asks Mr. Anderson to come to the ring. ♫Miiiisssttteeeerrrrr!!!♫ «< click to play). The self-proclaimed ‘Asshole’ marches to the squared circle, as JR surmises that this must be when he finds out about the Title shot he won after beating Christian last week. Edge welcomes him and shakes his hand, before confirming that now is the time to announce the Title shot Anderson will receive at Starrcade. “Ken. You beat my former tag team partner like a Government mule last week, copyright JR.” JR: “You can keep that one Edge.” Edge: “And now it is time to reveal the man you will be facing, for a Title, at Starrcade!” There is a pause, before ♫It’s a shame that they lost their head, a careless man could wind up dead!♫ «< click to play). The Celtic Warrior/Hardcore Champion Sheamus heads to the ring with his Belt over his shoulder. Regal: “Well that was hardly a shock. He wasn’t going to get another Intercontinental shot, Styles is already facing Punk for the World Title, he’s too heavy for the X-Division and he’s not two people, so the Tag’s were out of the question. Sheamus and the Hardcore Title was all that was left, unless he’s really a woman.” There is a bit of a cocky smile on Anderson’s face as he chews some gum, but it’s hard to tell if he is trying to look confident a bit too much as Sheamus enters the ring, beats his chest and yells “Fellaaaa!!!” The two competitors come face-to-face as Edge confirms that “Yes. At Starrcade it will be Mr. Anderson versus Sheamus for the KWF Hardcore Championship!” The fans cheer, as Anderson nods in approval. Anderson grabs himself a microphone and smiles at the GM: “This is what you had in mind? You saw me beat the crap outta Christian and this is what you have for me huh? The B-League?” Sheamus grabs a mic: “B-League? Sorry mate, but you better realize who you’re going to face at Starrcade? I ain’t no B-League superstar and if you want, I can smash your face in right now? See how B-League that feels hey fella?” Edge just stands there and smiles as Anderson responds: “Hey! Calm down fella. I’m just saying, you know, it doesn’t take much to swing a chair and whack someone with a kendo stick. Or wait, for you it’s more about trash can right? ‘cause that’s where you’re from? Trailer trash boy!” Sheamus: “Trailer trash? Boy?! You little prick, you wanna watch your” and all of a sudden Anderson attacks! A mic to Sheamus’ head and we watch as Edge exits the ring. Sheamus tries to get to his feet, but before he can gain any balance Anderson grabs him and plants him with a Mic-Check! There is varied response from the audience as JR says that both these two men are fan favorites. Anderson kneels over Sheamus and holds his hand up. We see his personal mic’ lower from the ceiling. He chuckles: “Hahaha, don’t worry shark tale, I don’t think ill of the Hardcore Belt. You fell for it moron. Hell, as it’s so easy for me to out-wit ya, it’s going to be a piece of cake to become the new Champ at Starrcade. See you there… prick!” ♫Anderson’s music hits♫ «< click to play) and he exits as JR says: “Things have gone from cold air to hot as hell in the Hardcore Division and it seems there’s a new challenger in town.” Regal: “Yes Jim and I must admit that Anderson had me fooled for a minute. I thought he was belittling the Title, but instead, he was pulling Sheamus’ guard down and then he struck. Brilliant!” JR: “Yes well, with competitors in KWF history such as Mark Henry, Rob Van Dam, Abyss and the Big Show, the Hardcore Division is no B-League by any means. It takes some heart, some real guts to even compete in a Hardcore match and I gotta say, Anderson’s shown us his metal here tonight. Gosh, Starrcade’s going to be awesome between these two.” We go to commercials.
Queen Madison Rayne w/ King Dolph vs. Nikki Bella w/ Brie Bella
It’s time for Chick action when we come back, and Queen Madison is being given her first chance to vent her frustration after losing her Women’s Title to AJ Lee at Survivor Series. She certainly takes advantage of it as she is fierce in her attacks on Nikki in the early going. She is cheered on by King Dolph on the sidelines, as JR makes an observation: “Madison engineered her way into Dolph’s Kingdom via an underhanded deal with Kaitlyn, and then she overthrew The Beautiful People, but all of a sudden it doesn’t seem that Dolph minds. He actually looks quite pleased with his latest Queen.” Regal: “He’s almost had as many Queens as Henry VIII, nowhere near as many wives as me though, haha.” The match goes on with Madison throwing Nikki around the ring, screaming at her all the while, saying “I should still be Champion!” She sticks the boot in, and the official has to drag her away. She continues the beatdown without ever trying to pin, but takes too many liberties as Nikki is able to perform a small package, getting Two on the cover. Madison is outraged and races at her, but straight into a clothesline, then another, and finally a dropkick. Madison falls to the outside, only for Brie to throw her back in. Dolph is outraged that Brie got involved, but the official is concentrating on the match again, so Ziggler reaches in a grabs the ankle of the Bella, allowing a distraction for Madison to get a roll up, but she only gets Two. The official gives Dolph a warning, but as he does, Dolph points into the ring and says “Hey! They switched! They did that twin magic thing!” We see that the Bellas have not switched at all, and both look puzzled by the accusation. The referee turns around and cannot tell, so he starts to have words with Brie. She protests her innocence, as does Nikki, but Madison uses this to grab Nikki from behind and hits the Rayne Drop. She covers and screams at the ref, who turns around and makes the Three-count.
Winner: Queen Madison.
The crowd boo as the King and Queen celebrate. Dolph places the Tiara on Madison’s head as JR says: “What a cheat! Dolph knew damn well they didn’t switch, but the referee wasn’t to know that, and Madison took advantage.” Regal: “It’s not the King’s fault that the official is a moron. Besides, the Bellas have gotten away with that so often that it’s about time it worked the other way.” Just as the King and Queen exit the ring, their music is cut and ♫AJ Lee’s music♫ «< click to play) hits. The crowd cheer as the Women’s Champion skips out from under the rising tron. She receives a great reception and we see Justin Roberts stand up by the timekeepers corner. He announces: “Ladies and gentlemen, I have just been informed that Queen Madison Rayne will receive her rematch for the KWF Women’s Championship at Starrcade!” The crowd cheer as the Queen tries to control herself, Dolph calming her down as AJ stands atop the stage. AJ taunts “Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!” and the crowd chant too. Regal: “Oh God, not this again.” JR: “The Queen’s not happy, but she’s never happy. Edge’s settled it, the rematch for the Women’s Title is coming on December 16th!”
We’re in Edge’s Skybox with the Rated R GM and all of a sudden, The Dudley Boys burst in. They seem very annoyed and they march toward Edge. Bubba: “You got what you wanted. You got the Belts taken off us and you humiliated us Edge! What Why So Serious did, that’s all on you!” Edge: “What, you mean you guys losing the Tag Titles and you guys being put through a table by two women, that’s on me? Well actually, I’d look in the mirror first guys.” Devon angrily says: “This isn’t funny! We should still be the KWF World Tag Team Champions. We are the best this business has to offer.” Bubba: “To steal a line from a friend of yours Edge; ten years ago we were the best tag team there ever was. We’re the best tag team there is today… and we’re the best tag team there ever will be!” Edge shakes his head as we hear the crowd boo in the background. The Dudleys state that Edge has been against them being the Champs ever since he took charge of KWF Blogs, and it’s because The Dudleys still have their careers whereas Edge has nothing. Edge: “Watch it.” Devon: “Look. We been around the block with you Edge. You knew we were still the best and you brought back Joker Hardy and his circus just so we could lose the Gold. That’s fine, we provoked you, we poked the bear and you bit back. But now we are the bear and we deserve that chance to bite back as well.” Bubba: “Give us our rematch Edge. Give it to us for Starrcade and make this right. It’s not about you and us anymore, it’s about the Tag Team Championships and there ain’t no way, even in your thick head, that you believe Joker and Gambit are better than us.” Edge thinks for a moment. He says that it was a straight up tag team match at Survivor Series and at the end of it, The Dudleys were beaten. Edge: “Gambit and The Joker beat you, so on that night they were better than you and at Starrcade I think they’ll beat you again, but here’s what I’ll do. You’re right Devon, the two of you did make fun of me, provoked me and I didn’t stand for it. It took a while, but eventually the two of you were dealt with. Now we’re even, so for Starrcade I’m making your rematch versus Why So Serious a Tables match!” Bubba looks happy enough and he nods as Devon has a smile on his face. The Dudleys declare that Edge has done the right thing and that come Starrcade, The Dudleys will be the KWF World Tag Team Champions once again. Devon finishes: “Oh my brother, Testifyyyy!”
Elsewhere backstage we’re with Jeremy Borash as he’s standing by to interview his guest at this time, the KWF World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles. The crowd cheer as AJ steps into the picture. JB: “AJ the rematch for you versus Punk is set for Starrcade, but the difference this time will be that it’s one fall to a finish. What do you make of CM Punk’s words from last week where he said, had it been a single-fall match at Survivor Series, he would have beaten you?” Styles: “Well first of all JB let me give a shoutout to all the fans here in the Cajundome, ‘cause this house is rockin’ tonight!” The crowd cheer even more. Styles continues: “JB, what Punk said is his opinion of recent events that occurred, but like I told him last week, me tapping to his submission move so early to go one-nothing down on the score was all part of a bigger strategy. Ironman matches, you can’t take no chances JB and I think Punk knows that. He went through a similar thing with Kurt Angle back in the summer and I respect the hell out of him because he defeated Kurt 3-2 in what turned out to be a Best-of-Five series match. Punk knows exactly what he did wrong at Survivor Series and you know what, maybe he even underestimated me. Thing is, I turned out the winner, I’m the KWF World Champion! Sorry Punk, but that’s just the way it is.” JB goes on to ask Styles about his contest versus Punk tonight. Styles says that he doesn’t know who Punk’s partner’s going to be, but he can reveal that his partner tonight will be this man… into the picture steps Rob Van Dam. RVD performs his thumb-taunt as JB excitedly wraps up: “Wow! Rob Van Dam to team with AJ Styles tonight ladies and gentlemen, that is a dream team in anyone’s eyes. I can’t wait for that one, JR, William, back to you.” Yoshi Tatsu is waiting in the ring as the music of Sin Cara hits, and JR tells us that it’s time for tag-team action. JR: “Styles and RVD to come later, man I can’t wait for that!”
Sin Cara & Yoshi Tatsu vs. Christopher Daniels & Kazarian
After the entrance of Daniels and Kaz, and the fans sit down after a good booing, the match begins with Tatsu against the Fallen Angel. The Japanese superstar surprises Daniels early on, hitting some severe kicks and getting the upper hand. Daniels tries to fight back, but Tatsu is fast and reverses and counters everything, getting a couple of roll ups and near falls in the process. However, after Yoshi goes to the ropes and gets a kick to the back from Kaz, Daniels downs him with a savage clothesline. The man from the City of Angels is in control now, and works over Tatsu, while making quick tags with Kaz. They tag in and out in between some fast and direct offense, isolating Yoshi from Sin Cara. Regal comments on how well Daniels and Kaz are teaming, suggesting that it’s instinct between two good friends, men who have known one another all the way through TNA. JR counters by saying Sin Cara and Tatsu often perform on WWE House Shows, but Regal says as one is Mexican and the other Japanese it makes little difference. Kaz throws Tatsu against the ropes and hits a standing dropkick, covering and getting Two. He keeps shooting looks over to Sin Cara and giving him abuse. The masked Mexican just looks on. Daniels gets in the ring and he and Kaz double-team Tatsu, sending him against the ropes. However, Yoshi counters with a double clothesline. The fans cheer as he crawls across and makes the tag to Sin Cara, who leaps straight off the top rope and nails them both with a double dropkick! The fans are on their feet as Sin Cara flies around the ring, causing Daniels to tag out to Kaz, who gets the same treatment. He is being kicked and thrown from post to post as JR points out that this is Kaz’s punishment for his interruption during the X-Division match at Survivor Series. Sin Cara hits a hurracanrana and even manages to get Kaz into position for his own version of the Flux Capacitor, but Kaz is having none of it, and blocks the move before headbutting Sin Cara to the canvas. He is in no mood to be outrun now and soon hits a devastating Wave of the Future. He tags out to Daniels, then runs over to the far corner to take down Yoshi. Daniels leaps off the top rope to nail the BME and covers for Three.
Winners: Christopher Daniels and Kazarian.
Kaz and Daniels celebrate with an air of arrogance, before Kaz lays a few more boots into Sin Cara. Regal: “And that is what you call ‘getting your comeuppance’.” JR: “Nonsense. Sin Cara did nothing wrong, people use other people’s moves all the time. Perhaps Kaz was just jealous that the Mexican executed better than he ever could.” Regal: “Oh please. Next you’ll be saying he can moonsault better than Daniels, but as that’s the ‘Best Moonsault Ever’, it’s actually impossible.” The crowd boo as Daniels and Kaz arrogantly raise their hands.
Samoa Joe is doing some air kicks backstage. He is getting more and more worked up, before letting out a roar as he performs a roundhouse kick to knock an equipment box over. The camera pans across to show that Daniel Bryan is standing just behind it. Bryan: “Well you certainly showed that box who’s boss. It was made easier because it stood perfectly still, which ironically, is exactly what you did at Survivor Series when Drew McIntyre had my shoulders pinned to the mat.” Joe: “You still on about that?” Bryan: “Yes, as a matter of fact I am! It’s not even about me being pinned, it’s about the fact that you are not a team player, and you’ve held me back because of it. When we went after the Tag Titles, you insisted on doing too much yourself, then again at Survivor Series and you cost us the match, and then again last week. Lord knows I didn’t want to tag with you again, but I at least thought you might have learned your lesson. But no, you were just selfish Samoa Joe again, like you always have been.” Joe doesn’t seem too flustered by this verbal attack from D-Bryan, and calmly replies: “Look Daniel, I admit it. I am selfish, and I am not a team player, but do you want to know why that is? It’s because it’s every man for himself around here. I don’t trust anyone and I don’t get on with anyone either. And face it Daniel, you’re not at my level. I was in a World Title match just over a month ago, you can’t even get a shot at the X-Division Title these days. It’s not that I have a problem with you personally, you’re just not as good as me, so I feel the need to do everything myself.” Bryan: “Oh good, I was worried you were gonna be patronizing about all this. Look Joe, you think you’re better than me, I think I’m better than you. Perhaps one day, we’ll find out once and for all.” Joe stares Bryan down. “Yeah, I’d like that.” They stare one another out some more, before Joe exits.
We’re back Live after commercials and we see that The Miz has made his entrance. The crowd boo heavily as he has a mic in hand and he says that “Everyone wants to know why I attacked Randy Orton.” He tries to go on and explain, but ♫Gambit’s music♫ «< click to play) hits. Miz is annoyed by the interruption as JR says: “Looks like the Cajun doesn’t care too much for Miz’s explanation here.” Regal: “But we were about to find out why The Miz did what he did, couldn’t Gambit stay backstage for just a few more seconds?! God sake.” We see Gambit’s girlfriend, the gorgeous Kelly Kelly walk down the ramp with her man. Regal: “Then again, err, wow. Where was I? Erm…” We see The Miz complain to the referee about the interruption, but we’re set for action as Gambit gets into the ring and the crowd are on their feet for the homestate return of Remy LeBeau.
The Miz vs. Gambit w/ Kelly Kelly
The bell rings and Miz stops yacking to realize who he’s in the ring with. Kelly Kelly’s at ringside holding Gambit’s Tag Title Belt. Miz treads softly at first, locking up with Gambit. He performs a side headlock and then his eyes widen as he looks toward the fans yelling: “This is the best you got? This is nothing! I am the Awesome one!” – but with that, Gambit pushes Miz off and when Miz comes back Gambit pokes a thumb in Miz’s eye. The crowd laugh as Gambit gets down on one knee and he winds up to perform a low-blow, but the ref stops him. As Miz comes toward him, Gambit rolls him into a small package, gets One, gets Two – but Miz kicks out. Miz backs up along the canvas and gathers himself by the ropes. Meanwhile Gambit struts and when Miz gets up to approach, Gambit backs up and lays over the top ropes by the corner, arrogantly laying there a-la Shawn Michaels. JR: “As we found out in Panther’s hunt for Gambit, Shawn Michaels actually trained LeBeau when he first got into wrestling. Acts like this, thumbs to the eye, a version of the figure four and of course Mardi-Gras akin to Sweet Chin Music, they’re all taken out of Shawn Michaels’ playbook.” Regal: “Yeah and not just that Jim. His and Shawn’s careers are quite parallel inside and outside the ring. He has a cocky strut, a woman on his arm. He turned his back on his old tag partner Jay Lethal, just like Shawn did with Marty Jannetty. Shawn moved on to bigger and better things with Triple H and DX. Gambit moved on to The Joker and Why So Serious. There are differences in external cast and mental stability factor, but any onlooker can say that Gambit stole everything that made HBK. I’m surprised more people don’t hate him for that.” JR: “Oh well we know how people feel about Why So Serious William. Everyone inside the industry hates them, apart from Edge. They see them as a dangerous, unstable, unreliable and unpredictable set of individuals – individuals who work together for a common purpose, and that purpose is chaos. However, for those same reasons, the fans love Why So Serious. They find them entertaining and I’ll tell you this, only Gambit can pull off that super-kick and call it his own. The fans accept him and cheer for him, and the locker room, well they won’t argue. Hell d’you remember an Impact SmackDown back when Ric Flair ran the show? Shawn Michaels was an active wrestler at the time and he left the building because Why So Serious were in the house. That included Gambit in the mix, a guy Shawn had trained and Michaels no longer wanted anything to do with him. That was many moons ago and even when Gambit was in San Antonio, just him and Kelly, the Cajun and Michaels didn’t cross paths.” Regal: “Have you ever wondered if maybe Shawn feels responsible for ‘creating’ Gambit?” JR: “Oh I’m not so sure about that. I just think that Gambit isn’t the man Shawn knew as a student and so Michaels cut all ties between them. Make no mistake, Joker Hardy created ‘this’ Gambit.”
The match at hand began with Gambit frustrating The Miz, even taking short cuts and taking breaks to either strut, to lay across the top turnbuckle or to go to ringside to flirt with Kelly Kelly. Miz wrestles well though and as he gets on top he becomes frustrated as Gambit kicks out of every pin attempt. JR: “Resilience, another trait of HBK.” Miz yells at the ref, demanding a faster count. We then see Kelly Kelly throw a yellow flag into the ring. Miz is disgruntled and we watch as the ref picks up the flag and asks: “What are you doing?!” Kelly: “He’s abusing you ref! That’s a technical if I’ve ever seen one!” The comms chuckle, as do the fans. JR: “Haha, well, we all know Gambit and Kelly are huge football fans. Remy once defeated the Masked Demon Kane on the back of an NFL play by Kelly. However, I don’t think Kelly’s got the correct call here.” Regal: “Correct call? This is a wrestling match Jim, not American Football. Jesus!” The ‘flag on the play’ leads to another distraction and that is as we watch Randy Orton sprint down the ramp! He gets in the ring, slithering like a snake. The Miz gets the ref’s attention and points him in the direction of Orton, but Randy backs off almost immediately. The KWF’s Apex Predator uncharacteristically slithers back out of the ring. Miz seems content, but warns the ref to keep an eye on Orton. However, as he turns his attention back to the match *BAM* Mardi-Gras! Gambit’s used all this time to recover and he hits it! He makes the cover for a; ‘One!’ count the crowd, ‘Two!’ and ‘Three!’
The crowd are on their feet as Kelly Kelly gets into the ring and makes sure Gambit has a Tag Title Belt on one arm and her on another. Orton loiters at ringside almost wanting The Miz to get up for a possible RKO, but he’s down and out after the Mardi-Gras. JR: “This match was put together for two reasons. One, The Miz ruined Turmoil’s main event last week and so had to face repercussions for his actions, and the punishment was to face Gambit. Secondly, this is Gambit’s homestate and Edge always makes a point of trying to give his superstars air time to please the fans when they return home. We almost heard Miz’s reasons for attacking Orton before this match got started, but Gambit’s entrance stopped any explanation. However, as we can see, Orton doesn’t care too much for explanations either. He made his presence known, and just like The Miz cost him last week, Orton’s cost The Miz here tonight.” Regal: “Yes, and cost him big as well Jim. The Miz would have defeated Gambit otherwise.” JR: “Well, I’m not so sure about that.”
We see a video clip that is shot in a scene of a black night sky. It’s raining and we can hear the sound of the rain fall as it hits the ground. Strange though, as the ground itself is a wet muddy soil. We are taken through a variety of scenic views of monuments of the world. The Giza Pyramid in Egypt. The Taj Mahal in India. Stonehenge in England. The Great Wall of China. Acropolis. Potala Palace. These sights and others are all seen under night sky and rain fall. In the end we see an image of a man in a black long trench coat. He’s walking through the rain, no worldly sights in the scene, but in the end the figure turns around toward the camera and a voice speaks over saying ‘This. Is. Sting…” We see The Icon Sting, standing in the rain and he performs a loud “Whooooo!” as the picture zooms quickly out of him and onto some text saying: STARRCADE! Live December 16th 2012, only on KWF Blogs!
We’re back Live after commercials and the crowd are on their feet as we hear ♫music hits♫ «< click to play). The tron rises and a shadow emerges as we witness the return, the much promised return of The Icon, the man they call Sting has come back to KWF Blogs! Sting takes in the ovation as he walks down to the ring with his trademark long trench coat and black and white face-paint. JR: “What a reception! What a night it’s been and now we have Sting, followed by our main event. William, KWF Blogs doesn’t get much better.” Regal: “Well, he’s here, finally, but I wonder what he’s got to say Jim?” Sting climbs the turnbuckles to take in all the cheers, and he drops back down to the canvas. Wait though, a beast of a figure slides into the ring. JR: “What the? Who is that?!” We see through the strobe lighting that it’s none other than The Absolute Lashley! Sting doesn’t realize what’s going on, his attention’s still on the fans and we watch as Lashley approaches Sting, lifts him up and smashes him down with an almighty Sitdown Spinebuster! The Cajundome is silenced as Lashley stands over Sting’s body. Regal: “What on earth?” JR: “What the hell is going on here? Lashley, after what The UnderTaker had to say last week, by God, I don’t get this. What is this about? What is going on?” The crowd boo The Absolute One as we see Sting laid out and the scene fades out.
We come back Live and we watch as a murmuring audience sit wondering what The Dark Side is playing at. JR: “William, we saw The UnderTaker cost Lashley his match at Survivor Series. He explained last week that Lashley wasn’t good enough, that he wasn’t at the level that he should be as apprentice to the Deadman. But God, what just happened here William? Why did Lashley take out Sting?” Regal: “I don’t know Jim, and I’m not going to ask him. Sting was here, returning from some time off. He wanted to say something, but he wasn’t even handed a mic before Lashley showed up. I hope this gets cleared up Jim. I want to know what’s going on just as much as you, everyone in this arena and everyone at home.” With that, the mood changes as we hear ♫CM Punk’s music♫ «< click to play). The crowd get to their feet and find their voices to cheer the entrance of the former KWF World Champion. Punk acknowledges the fans before pointing toward the stage where the tron rises and it is revealed that CM Punk’s partner tonight is none other than… ♫music hits♫ «< click to play) Kurt Angle! Angle receives a standing ovation also as we take our minds off Lashley and Sting and get set for our Wednesday Night Turmoil main event. Rob Van Dam enters next, and last but not least is the KWF World Heavyweight Champion ♫Get Ready to Fly!♫ «< click to play).
CM Punk & Kurt Angle vs. Rob Van Dam & AJ Styles
There’s huge anticipation for this one and we watch as the crowd are on their feet for arguably four of KWF’s most popular superstars. JR: “And that’s what’s incredible here William. If you take into account how much these wrestlers are adored by the fans, you just don’t know which way this is going to go. I mean, who’s the favorites here? Which team is going to win?” Regal: “It’s wrestling competition at it’s very best Jim. Kudos to Edge, this is a brilliant main event.” Angle starts off against Styles and we watch intently as Styles readies himself before locking up with the Olympic Gold Medalist. JR: “It’s well documented that Kurt Angle helped CM Punk find his form, he helped him get his career back on the tracks William. I’m certain Punk is ever grateful and respectful to Angle for that.” Regal: “Yes, well maybe. If I’m Kurt Angle, I feel a little bit jipped JR. I mean, Kurt I’m sure must be wondering why Punk never chose him to have a Title match at Survivor Series right?” JR: “That’s possible, but Kurt Angle is a man of integrity. He knows he’s lost to Punk twice already. Plus, who can argue that AJ Styles didn’t deserve the shot – and who can argue because Styles is our new World Champion, and that’s the bottom line here.” Angle and Styles go back and forth in the early going, exchanging holds and quick maneuvers, both making sure that if they’re down then they’re quickly back to their feet so the opponent can’t gain any momentum. After a series of arm drags and snapmares, Angle and Styles stand off and AJ then points to CM Punk. The crowd cheer as Punk holds his hand out and Angle tags him in. Punk skips over the top rope and then sets to attack right away, but then backs off with a smile on his face. Regal: “Punk’s been around big hitting competitors in the KWF and WWE House Shows Jim, I think he knows better than Styles when to go all-out and when to pick his spots.” JR: “Maybe you’re right there Mister Regal, but one may argue that AJ’s overcome Punk’s experience factor by using his own. I mean, the man’s a TNA Grand Slam winner, he’s been around the block and he’s no rookie to this game. I understand where you’re coming from, but as much as Punk may enjoy the odd mind game, AJ is very adept at taking it and not letting it affect his game.” Punk and Styles lock up and Punk goes behind for a hammerlock. AJ reaches between his legs, but Punk puts a knee to his back to send him toward his own corner. Styles waits as Punk comes running toward him and he dropkicks Punk’s knees so that he goes head-first into the middle turnbuckle. Styles and Van Dam use this chance to tag and RVD comes in fresh. Punk is down so Van Dam thumb-taunts before running against the far ropes for a possible Rolling Thunder, but Punk escapes, exiting under the bottom rope and taking a walk at ringside. Van Dam uses this opportunity to run against the far ropes and come back toward Punk at ringside with a flip-dive, but ‘Ohhhh!’ gasp the crowd as Van Dam hits the floor, Punk diving out the way. The comms show replays as we head to our final commercial break of the night.
When we return we see that Kurt Angle has RVD centre of the ring with a body-scissor submission hold. The comms take us split-screen to show us what occurred during the commercial break. We see that Punk performed a suicide dive upon Van Dam at ringside. He then tagged Kurt Angle and Angle has been dominating ever since. The crowd stomp their feet as Styles slaps the top turnbuckle to try and get Van Dam going. RVD is still one of the most agile superstars in the business and he uses his skills to kick up over his own head and force Angle to let go of the hold. This has the crowd going wild as both men begin to crawl toward their own corners. Punk and Styles both reach in and the crowd scream as they both become legal at exactly the same time. Punk sets for a springboard, but simply jumps toward the centre of the ring. Styles sets for a springboard and he too has to settle to jump toward the centre. Punk and Styles come face to face and Punk hits the first right! AJ comes back with a right as well and the two of them go back and forth with no fancy moves, no high risk offense, it’s just a pure fight, a fist fight Live here in Louisiana. The crowd go berserk for the action as Regal wonders whether these two are building a mutual hatred for one another, but JR stifles that notion, declaring that it’s all about competition, competing to be the best and to be the KWF World Champion: “Punk had that Title taken from him, he wants it back, he desperately wants it back and with him and Styles, we’re seeing how much it means. By God what a contest!” Regal: “Yeah, you’re right there Jim. It is about the World Title in the end, but here tonight it’s a tag match – there’s no Title on the line and these two are going right at it, I love this!” AJ’s getting the better of Punk, but Angle comes in to help his partner and they double team the World Champ with a double suplex back toward his own corner. RVD reaches in to tag the grounded AJ, and the ref then tells Kurt Angle to back off too his corner. Van Dam isn’t fully fresh from his previous run, but he comes in with full attempts to grasp this match. He tries a spin-kick at Punk, but Punk ducks to grab Van Dam by the leg, lift him atop his shoulders and then *BAM* he nails him with the GTS! AJ Styles is getting up, but he knows nothing of what’s going on behind him as Punk covers and gets the Three-count!
Winners: CM Punk and Kurt Angle.
♫CM Punk’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and the fans stand to applaud all four men. Kurt Angle raises Punk’s hand and so too does the referee. AJ Styles stands with his hands on his hips as the comms review replays of how this match unfolded. We see that Styles and RVD were on top in the early going, but it was teamwork from Angle and Punk that eventually had the contest tilt in their favor and in the end, we were treated to an outstanding tag team contest from four singles main event superstars. We see AJ Styles carrying his Title by his waist as he holds up RVD and the two of them set to exit up the ramp. Kurt Angle is centre of the ring, but tonight, on this night, it’s CM Punk who’s on top and he celebrates by climbing the turnbuckles and yelling “Best in the Worrrrllllddd!” Wednesday Night Turmoil fades out.
