♫Wednesday Night Turmoil opening video♫ «< click to play)
At the close of the new opening video to this brand new weekly blog, the fans murmur as we hear the newly collaborated entrance ♫music of Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair♫ «< click to play). There are instant boos as we watch the new KWF tron raise and from behind the screen step out the two former rival General Managers. The fans boo them all the way to the ring, but it doesn’t matter. Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair act as though they’re Gods, and after what happened at the conclusion of KWF Survivor Series, who could blame them?
Hulk and Flair get in the ring and the Nature Boy is first on mic. He and Hogan embrace to show their unity and Flair directs everyone to snap-shot images of how Hulk Hogan dropped the big leg on his own brand’s Team Captain at Survivor Series. It was a traditional five on five Survivor Series main event and we were all lead to believe that this was a brand war between Hulk Hogan’s TNA RAW and Ric Flair’s Impact SmackDown. If Team Red had won, the premise was that Ric Flair would leave the KWF and Hogan would take over as sole GM of both KWF programs with the rosters all working as one. If Team Blue won then it was Hogan who had to leave and Ric Flair would welcome the TNA RAW roster to spill over onto Friday nights. No matter what happened though, the roster spill was the only guarantee. As it turned out, Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan had us all fooled and KWF Survivor Series ended not only with a Hogan leg drop, but the Nature Boy humiliating Sting by putting him in a Figure Four leglock as well.
Flair and Hogan spend much time on the mic as the fans continuously boo. They call all the fans “fools” and say that they’ve had this planned ever since that night the week before Sovereignty 3, the TNA RAW of July 18th. Hulk says “It was pure genius Ric. You came to me and we devised this plan through a single night TNA RAW. Steve Austin questioned me afterward, Sting fought you at Sovereignty and then we used the X-Division as a cover-up!” Flair smiles and nods as Hogan smirks about the irony that he’d picked Steve Austin as his Team Captain and the “pure chance” that Flair went begging to Sting to be the Team Captain of Team Blue. Flair says “Hulk we had them in the palm of our hands. Nobody ever saw this coming.” Flair tells that they had to put this together at a show where much of the roster were in action. He says “Did you notice? A Seven Sins X-Division match where 14 superstars would have to sign for the contest? A Four Corner Women’s tag, The Joker’s Playground and the main event itself. All of these matches had more superstars than a regular one on one match and it allowed us to make sure that over half the roster were in action at Survivor Series!” Hogan explains “You see, Ric Flair and I have been in cahoots this whole time and the reason we wanted nearly everyone to wrestle this past Sunday was because in every contract for every match there was a little fine print that declared that the superstar signing for the match was also signing for the revamp of the Keystone Wrestling Federation!” Flair: “Nobody knew it! They were not just signing for a match, but also signing a declaration that they wanted to push out the KWF Board, finish TNA RAW and Impact SmackDown and work as one under the leadership of Hollywood Hogan and the Nayyyture Boy Woooo!” Flair begins to dance as Hulk tells that he and Ric have duel control of the KWF. They nullify the power of the Board and now there are no more GM’s, no two shows a week and just them running the show. Flair “Woooo!”’s again and says that the KWF began back in July of 2009 with a one-off pay-per-view called Wednesday Night Turmoil and now the show is back. From now on we’ll get the new raising titantron (a-la TNA, it can be seen on the KWF Turmoil opening video). We get new commentators (Hogan points down toward the announcers table where we see Jim Ross and William Regal). Justin Roberts is the ring announcer and the squared circle itself has yellow ring-ropes with black KWF turnbuckles!
The audience take this all in, but the new bosses aren’t done. They declare that the current WWE and TNA Belts here in the KWF, will be unified at KWF Starrcade to officially determine the first ever set of KWF Champions. They say that from now on, this is the new format; one show a week with all the very best Pro Wrestler’s in the world. The pay-per-view structure stays the same, but because of the unification of many of the Belts, the competition will certainly increase. Hogan says “With that in mind, let us tell you tonight’s main event.” Flair announces that Wade Barrett will be getting his rematch for the WWE Championship against Ken Anderson. The fans cheer the thought of Anderson being in action, but then, to everyone’s surprise ♫Kurt Angle’s music♫ «< click to play). hits and out comes the Olympic Gold Medalist. The fans cheer for Kurt, almost as if they’re thanking God that somebody has come out here to question all this madness. Angle is all business as he gets a mic in hand. Hogan and Flair stand there looking all smug, but Kurt then goes over toward Hulk to grab him by his collar! The fans cheer as Flair intervenes and pushes Angle away. Kurt back off and gets on mic. “I knew it! All this time, ever since Bret Hart got taken out, Hulk Hogan you rat b*stard, you have been avoiding me. Throughout the whole summer all the way until you got Steve Austin to get me onside to be on Team TNA RAW, you’ve avoided me and now I know why. I would have seen it Hulk, I would have seen it in your eyes. For a long time Stone Cold questioned you, he wondered what your motives were in being the General Manager of TNA RAW and boy did you have all of us fooled.” Flair: “You damn right he did, he pulled the wool over all of your eyes and now the show is ours! All ours Kurt ha haa haa!” Hulk holds Flair back and they converse off-mic while Angle goes on to say that he can’t believe this is happening. Hulk and Flair take centre stage as Hogan tells that he was purposely ducking Kurt Angle. “You’re like a dog that sniffs out trouble Kurt and you should get a pat on the back for that, because you’re right, I did duck you every chance I could. Flair and I, we rode the storm of Ric losing to Sting at Sovereignty 3 and with everything going on around us we picked our battles, chose who to use to our advantage and chose who let be just to keep them out of our way. UnderTaker and Triple H did their thing and I ‘focused’ on the X-Division. Why So Serious ran Impact SmackDown into a circus, but Flair didn’t care because he wanted to keep Stinger sweet and now look what’s happened. We’re in charge, oh and Kurt Angle, brother… you’re fired!” Angle has a shocked look on his face, he stomps up and down as the fans boo like hell. Angle goes to take a swing at Hogan, but Hulk just stands there as Flair yells “Don’t touch him!” The Nature Boy tells Angle to leave right now or else he’ll be spending Thanksgiving behind bars for assault on one of the new bosses of the KWF. Hulk Hogan tells Kurt Angle “Get out of our ring!” and Kurt spits at Flair and Hogan’s feet before exiting. Kurt storms off up the ramp as Flair and Hogan raise their hands, but the audience end the scene out by chanting ‘Bullllsh*t!’ ‘Bullllsh*t!’ ‘Bullllsh*t!’
Back from commercials we join our new KWF commentators at ringside. “Ladies and gentlemen thank you for joining us. I am Jim Ross, you great fans know me as good ol’ JR and I’m joined here by my broadcast colleague William Regal.” “Ahh, yes Jim, I’m very pleased to be here and so very excited at this new concept from KWF Blogs.” JR says that he can’t believe the precedent that the new bosses have set out here. They have fired so many people already; “Cole and King, Tenay and Tazz, Lillian Garcia is gone and so is ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund, how can they do this?!” Regal: “Sacrifices have to be made for such a movement to happen Jim, but the name you missed off that list is a certain Kurt Angle. I tell you, what a statement, to fire the Olympian right here on the first night of the newly established Wednesday Night Turmoil. It’s a fantastic ploy from Hogan and Flair. They pulled this off, no one should mess with them and if anyone questions them then wham, the axe that beheads the snake. Kurt Angle’s gone from the KWF.” As the ♫Dudleys Music♫ «< click to play). hits we hear JR ask Regal what now happens with the British Invasion. Regal says that he’s somewhat handed over the keys to his British Invasion Rolls Royce. “After what happened this past Sunday where Wade Barrett lost the WWE Title to that ingrate Kenneth Anderson, I took Wade aside and gave him leadership to my faction.” “So you knew this was all going to happen, with Hogan and Flair I mean?” “I knew that they were up to something and I can’t deny that Mr. Flair told me a lot more than perhaps he should have. Nonetheless, we’re here now, I’m in my new job next to you, let’s just enjoy the show shall we?”
The Dudleys vs. Harlem Heat
Two sets of brothers, and two of the greatest Tag Teams of all time square off in our opening bout of the night. It’s the WWE Tag Champs Bubba Ray and Devon against the former TNA Tag Champs Stevie Ray and Booker T. There’s a lot of jaw jacking before this one gets underway, mostly from Bubba. He tells the Heat they’re finished and that they should have stayed retired. Regal points out that both of these teams are closer to retirement than their debuts, but gives the edge to The Dudleys as they haven’t had the long hiatus like Stevie and Booker had. The match finally begins with Stevie Ray up against Bubba. The Dudley gets an early advantage with an eye rake, then Bubba hits elbows to force Stevie into the corner. He hits knees to the gut, then talks more smack at him. Booker gets in to protest, but the referee intercepts. This allows Devon to run along the apron and hold Stevie Ray’s arms while Bubba hits shots to the face and torso. Devon lets go as the ref turns around again. The Dudleys go on like this, isolating Stevie Ray and making quick tags to one another. “That is the sign of a great Tag Team Jim, its quick Tags like that which got them their 28-Tag Titles. Could be an argument that Tables had a small part to play, but I’m not that cynical.” “They are a fine Tag Team, but some of the tactics they’ve used recently are down right despicable.”
Devon is taking the fight to Stevie Ray now, hitting stomps. He raises his arm to the crowd, before heading up to the middle rope. He flies off for an elbow drop, but misses as Stevie rolls out the way and makes the hot tag to Booker, who comes in and cleans house. The fans are on their feet as he hits a running calf kick on Devon before punching Bubba off the apron. Booker starts to work over Devon, nailing the Book End, but Bubba comes in to break the count. The Heat are on top, and Booker brings Stevie Ray back in. They double team Devon with a suplex, getting another near fall. Bubba gets in the ring to protest, but the referee stops him. Stevie tags and then goes to attack Bubba, but the official turns around to him and orders him out of the ring. Meanwhile, behind him, a recovering Devon hits a low blow on Booker T. He and Bubba then nail a picture perfect 3-D. Stevie has gotten back out to the apron as Devon covers and the ref counts. Stevie Ray is unable to make it into the ring in time to stop the Three.
Winners: The Dudleys.
After the match Bubba and Devon are celebrating as Stevie Ray checks on his brother. “Stevie was a little bit slow there Jim, perhaps the Heat shouldn’t be so quick to demand their Tag Title rematch?” “I’m not sure they’ll even get it with Hogan and Flair in charge. We do know that The Dudleys will meet Beer Money at Starrcade to unify the Tag Titles though William, and in this form, Bubba and Devon are certainly going to prove tough to beat.” Stevie Ray is soon attacked as The Dudleys want to make this first night of Turmoil a night to remember. Bubba hits Stevie with a Bubba Bomb before he yells “Get the Tables!” to Devon. The crowd boo as Devon grabs a Table from under the ring and slides it in. Booker T. tries to get up and fight back, but The Dudleys throw him through the ropes and he lands hard at ringside. Bubba sets the Table up, and then they perform a second devastating 3-D of the evening, this time sending Stevie Ray through the Table. They get booed out of the arena as Booker eventually gets back in the ring to see to his brother. Medics and referees come down as JR asks “What is the meaning of this, what is the point? Those damn Dudleys, there’s no reason to do this, they won the match.” Regal: “They made a statement Jim. Just by showing Harlem Heat to their Tables they’re telling Beer Money that they just took their last challengers and made turkey’s out of them, haha, this is classic Dudley Boys and they’re here only at KWF Blogs.” JR finishes: “This was a heinous attack, what right to The Dudleys have damn it!”
We are backstage in the new, and very flashy, office of the co-Chairmen of the KWF, Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan. Flair: “Did you see their faces out there? It was beautiful. Those idiots didn’t have a clue that this was where the KWF was headed. All this scheming and backstabbin’ just makes me feel like goin’ ‘Woooooo!’” Hogan smiles. “That’s right Naytch. I loved it on Sunday brother, took me back to when I first started the nWo. Dropping the leg on a legend, hearing the fans boo till their throats went raw, having all the trash thrown into the ring. All that was missing was Mean Gene. It was classic. Having ‘Real American’ blaring through the Garden and seeing all the ‘Hulk Still Rules’ banners, you’re damn right Hulk Still Rules, with an iron fist brother.” They laugh together as they mock that they’ve fire Gene Okerlund. Their attention is caught by some people entering the office. It’s the former WWE Champion and new leader of the British Invasion, Wade Barrett, along with Big Rob Terry, Styler, Mason Ryan and Drew McIntyre. It’s all quite friendly as Barrett offers the Hogan/Flair regime the full backing of the British Invasion, but goes on to say that while he appreciates his rematch tonight, he’s just as badly beaten up as Anderson after Sunday. “I want my rematch when I’m at 100% and I know I can destroy that little arsehole once and for all.” Flair and Hogan pretty much whisper to one another and Ric then approaches Barrett and says “Wade Barrett, the Bare Knuckle Brawler himself. New leader of this fine faction of the best that the UK has to offer. Regal handed you this organization and I hope you take it further than you ever did the World Elite. You should be WWE Champion, not that punk Anderson, so how about this; You face Anderson, tonight… but… in a No Disqualification match, whadya think of that my good man?” Barrett raises a smirk, looks at all his British Invasion colleagues, who are all smiling with evil intent as well. Hogan is simply nodding in approval in the background, stroking his moustache. Barrett says “Thank you very much gentlemen, that’ll do nicely.” The British Invasion leave the office as we hear JR on voiceover say “My goodness, the WWE Champion Mr. Anderson is going to have to defend his Title tonight against Wade Barrett, and it’s gonna be No Disqualification!” Regal sarcastically adds “Oh my, it seems like Anderson’s chances just got significantly worse, what a shame.”
When we come back, Justin Roberts is in the ring, and hands it over to Alberto Del Rio’s personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez, who introduces “Ell Orguuuuullo deeee Mehicoooooo! Albertooooo Del-Riiiiiiiiiioooooo!” Del Rio rides into the arena in a 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLC AMG worth upwards of $120,000. He eventually gets into the ring and grabs a mic. “My name, my name is Alberto Del-Rio! But you already know that. Since last Sunday, people have been asking me… well… they have been asking my servants, why Alberto? Why did you walk out on Team Impact SmackDown at Survivor Series? I wouldn’t expect you pigs to know the workings of a mind as great as mine, but it is obvious no? See I knew what was going down at the end of the match. I knew that it didn’t matter if Team TNA RAW or Team Impact SmackDown won, either way it was going to be Hogan and Flair standing tall together. I didn’t need to stay out there to watch it all unfold. Alberto Del-Rio is a busy man, but I played along with the whole charade, and it was so funny seeing the looks on…” ♫Rob Van Dam music♫ «< click to play). RVD makes his way to the ring and says “Whatever dude. You can try and give reason to walking out on us, and who knows, maybe you’re right, maybe the outcome would have been the same either way, but that doesn’t change the fact that you’re a backstabber who walked out on your team. And where I come from, Battle Creek, Michigan, we do something about backstabbers.” Van Dam gets in the ring and Del-Rio forces his personal ring announcer toward RVD. This provides a good distraction and Del-Rio is able to remove his scarf and then clobber Van Dam down from behind. The fans boo as he chokes RVD and then stomps away at him. Del-Rio removes his suit jacket and grabs the mic again to demand a referee. “Get me a ref down here, I want to teach this peasant a lesson!”
Alberto Del-Rio vs. Rob Van Dam
“Rob Van Dam was the one who wanted to teach Del Rio a lesson, but Del-Rio’s dastardly use of his personal ring announcer ultimately gets him the upper hand.” “Ahh, it’s nice to see people know their place Jim. Rodriguez is a servant of the great Del-Rio and we should be pleased that Alberto called for a referee, we’re in the presence of greatness.” Del-Rio remains on top, but the referee takes the scarf off him as soon as the bell rings and the fans cheer on RVD. He backs Del Rio into the corner and hits kicks to the chest and head, before a spin kick to the stomach and a monkey flip back into the centre of the canvas. The fans chant for Van Dam as he carries on his offense. He has Alberto by the ropes and is trying to get some punches in, but Rodriguez sticks his beak in and pokes RVD in the eye. The official didn’t see, but Van Dam rolls to the outside and slowly pursues the frightened ring announcer. He is about to knock him into the back row of the arena, when Del Rio rushes round to clobber RVD across the back of the head. He stomps at him before throwing him into the barrier. He taunts him before rolling him back into the ring and following to pin and get a near fall. Regal compliments Del Rio. “There’s something about people like Alberto and myself. Cut from the same cloth as great figures like Her Majesty The Queen.” JR: “With all due respect, I doubt The Queen could take a beating like Van Dam had issued in these early goings.” Regal: “Oh you haven’t seen her execute a Full Nelson have you Jim? Like a Kung Fu grip so I’ve heard. Just ask Charles.”
Del Rio grabs RVD in an arm bar, trying to soften it up for his finisher. Van Dam fights back, so Del Rio rams him shoulder first into the steel post. He grabs the left arm and performs a double knee armbreaker. He then goes for his Cross Armbreaker. The Mexican Aristocrat tries to lock it on, but Van Dam uses his flexibility to get out of it, and as they both get to their feet, RVD levels Del Rio with a spin kick that rocks Del-Rio on the side of his head. The fans ‘Ohhh’ at the impact of the move and the comms review replays. Van Dam is confident once more as he looks out to the crowd and does his thumb-taunt before going against the ropes and nailing Rolling Thunder. The Whole F’n Show then taunts again before climbing to the top rope, but before he can hit the Five Star, Del Rio gets up and shakes the ropes. RVD tries to keep his balance, but has no choice but to leap off, and this time he connects with a flying kick to the head of Del Rio, who bounces off the ropes and falls back onto the mat. Del-Rio has no answers now as Van Dam springs back up to the top rope and he flies off to slam down with, as JR screams, the “Five Star Frog Splash!” ‘One!’ count the crowd along with the referee, ‘Two!’ ‘Three!’
Winner: Rob Van Dam!
The fans cheer as Rob Van Dam celebrates. JR says it’s about time these fans had something to cheer for. “This audience has had a rough shot of KWF Blogs tonight and I’m damn sure glad that Rob Van Dam’s put a smile on their faces.” Regal concedes that RVD was impressive, “but he ambushed Del-Rio Jim, you can’t condone that.” “Del-Rio was the one who called for a referee, RVD just came out here to shut Del-Rio up!” Regal says that the Mexican will take this as an insult, to lose to a peasant like RVD in his first match on Turmoil. He says that Del Rio will be back and he has a great future ahead of him, and that he shouldn’t let a loss like this get in the way of fulfilling his ‘Destiny’.
Backstage we’re with Wednesday Night Turmoil interviewer Jeremy Borash. JB says that he’s glad to be one of the lucky journalist staff not to have lost his job here on KWF Blogs. He then introduces the reigning Intercontinental Champion, ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero. Pope says that he’s happy to come out of Survivor Series still the Intercontinental Champion, “but Daddy, everyone’s on edge in the locker room. The comms are all gone, I have to talk to you instead of ‘Mean’ Gene and JB, we don’t know what Hogan and Flair’s next moves are Daddy.” Pope’s interview is interrupted by the seven-foot tall United States Champion Matt Morgan. Morgan shoves Borash out the way and takes his mic. He tells Pope: “Dinero I know exactly what’s happening. I’ve spoken to Hulk and Ric since Sunday and at Starrcade it’s going to be me versus you Pope. United States Title versus the Intercontinental Title and the winner’s Belt is the Championship that stays on at KWF Blogs.” Pope smiles “Oh is that right? Well then Daddy I guess I’ll be seeing you at Starrcade.” Morgan smirks and walks off shaking his head. Pope is left smiling, but then his expression turns very serious as he looks at his Intercontinental Belt.
We head back out to the arena where JR and Regal are giving their thoughts on this past Sunday’s historic pay-per-view, KWF Survivor Series. There were some huge results and perhaps even career changing matches for some. The Pope retained against R-Truth, The Beautiful People backed up their claims as the best female duo of all time as they won the Four Corner Women’s Tag match, Triple H finally put his demons to rest as he shockingly teamed with best friend and DX partner Shawn Michaels to defeat The Dark Side, John Cena beat AJ Styles to become number one contender to the TNA World Title, Mr. Anderson became WWE Champion, CM Punk became TNA World Champion, Team TNA RAW beat Team Impact SmackDown, but another shocking occurrence happened earlier in the night. In the Seven-Deadly Sins match for the X-Division Title, fourteen X-Division superstars went head to head, and there was a surprising twist which saw, of all people, Rey Mysterio resort to underhanded tactics to emerge victorious. Shocking scenes saw Rey booed out of an arena for the first time in his career, but he didn’t seem to care. “And ladies and gentlemen we will have more on this incredible turn of events next week here on Wednesday Night Turmoil as the man himself, Rey Mysterio, will be here to address the KWF fans, and hopefully will explain just what the hell is going on!” “Settle down Jim. Wrestling fans if you haven’t yet, do Read KWF’s Survivor Series, click HERE now!”
The Beautiful People vs. The Bellas
The Beautiful People complete their provocative entrance as Regal says that there’s no more “puppies” or “letting pigeons loose” but “I must say, Velvet and Angelina certainly look exquisite this evening.” JR tells that it was The Bellas’ birthday this past Monday and he wonders whether they wanted to be part of the Four Corner Women’s Tag match this past Sunday. “Nikki and Brie can prove a point here, a win versus The Beautiful People on the first night of Turmoil would be massive for their future.” The contest starts out with The Beautiful People dominating Brie. They trash talk their opponents and Angelina does well to ground Brie, but then she lets her up and allows her to tag Nikki. Nikki comes in fast, but Angelina ducks a clothesline to then snapmare her down. Velvet tags in and she lands a low dropkick right in the kisser of Nikki. Velvet stands up to taunt and bow as JR says that “The arrogance of the Beautiful People is a major turn-off. They’re despicable.” Regal: “That’s poppycock. These fine women are role models for any young woman and their zest for dominance is a character trait that all young ladies should to.” “Oh William that’s bull. Role models? Zest for dominance, you gotta be kidding me. They come out here barely wearing any clothes, they mock their opposition and then they look down on everyone because they think they’re better. They’re like bullies in a school yard.” The match goes on with Nikki coming back and proving to be a good match for Velvet and the Bellas then perform Twin Magic to almost get Two on the cover. Angelina bemoans the switch, but the ref didn’t see it. Velvet reaches for the tag as a Bella then tags in and the crowd cheer as she runs up behind Velvet to lift her skirt and smack her on the backside. The Bella poses, but Velvet then tags Angelina who comes in to near decapitate the Bella with a Botox Injection and the result is academic, One! Two! Three!
Winners: The Beautiful People.
Angelina Love raises her arm and then pushes away the referee. Velvet is handed the Knockouts Title and The Bellas are left with a loss on their opening night on Turmoil. The BP pose and pander toward the crowd. They exit around the ring and point toward various people in the front row saying “You’re ugly, you’re ugly, you’re disgusting.” The comms review replays and wonder which Bella was which, but in the end it didn’t matter, Angelina Love wins it for The Beautiful People again.
Backstage we’re with JB once more and this time he’s joined by The Doctor Of Thuganomics, John Cena. Borash reminds us that Cena cheated to win this past Sunday and “And what JB?! I won the match, the ref saw nothin’ and it was my hand that was raised. AJ Styles ain’t got nothin’ on me. I told that little trailer park punk that I’d make waste of him and that’s exactly what I did!” Borash says that Cena’s the number one contender now, but is he planning to challenge CM Punk for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship before Starrcade? Cena says “Are you stupid?” and tells that he’ll cash in his number one contendership when he’s good and ready. “There’s a lot of changes happening here and I was the start of it. I ignited the whole thing and whether you moron fans like it or not, I’m gonna be the future of the KWF. 2012 is my time and there ain’t no one that’s gonna stop me.” Cena shoves JB out the way, takes his mic and shrugs his shoulders “Word Life, What?!”
We’re back in the arena once more where the lights all go out. There’s a few screams of excitement. ♫Are you Ready?♫ «< click to play). The fans all roar as one as The Game, Triple H, and The Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels come down to the ring. “What a moment it was on Sunday.” JR says. “Triple H and Shawn Michaels, back together again, and for the first time in the KWF, as D-Generation X. The fans are on their feet! The unbridled passion for DX who are finally back together.” They milk the fans cheers, and perform the pyro accompanied DX chops in the ring. Shawn runs around Hunter, and eventually hands him a mic as the audience finally settle. “About a month ago I was rocking back and forth in a darkened room, breaking out into a cold sweat about The UnderTaker and The Absolute Lashley, and back then I would never have thought that by this time I would be standing in the middle of this ring, opposite this man saying… Are you Ready?” The fans roar. “No, Sunrise, Florida, I said, ARE… YOU… READYYYYY????!!!!!” They scream even louder. “Then, for the thousands in attendance, for the millions watching around the world, and for The Dark Side who for the first time in a long time are reminded of what a real ass kicking can feel like.” The fans cheer and laugh… “Lllllllllllets get ready to Suck Iiiiitttt!” The crowd go nuts as HBK is handed the mic. “And if you’re not down with that we got two words for ya!” He holds the mic up as the thousands in attendance yell ‘SUCK IT!!!’ at the top of their lungs. Triple H is given the mic back, and he talks about how satisfying it was to finally defeat The UnderTaker and The Absolute Lashley on Sunday. He jokes “I had you all fooled, admit it. You all thought I was facing them alone, even Steph’ didn’t know. I get the feeling I’m gonna get a worse beating off her than I got at Survivor Series.” The fans chuckle as Shawn looks at him as if to say “Beating? What kind of beating?!”
Hunter thanks Shawn for having his back and for agreeing to reunite at Madison Square Garden of all places. “Now I know you guys like seeing us in here, doing our shtick and goofing around, but err… Shawn’s got something to tell you.” He quickly passes the mic to HBK, who doesn’t seem to want it either, but he takes it anyway. “Oh alright. Well, I don’t quite know how to say this, and I know I’m gonna seem like the bad guy for saying it, but I’m afraid this particular reunion is for one night only.” The fans boo. “Actually, I suppose technically its two nights only but… you know what I mean. I agreed to help out a friend in need, not just because he asked me to and that I was doing him a favor, but because… well… because I needed one last match. You see, in the time I’ve had off these past few months, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, and a lot of soul searching, and I’ve decided that… this is the end of the line for The Heartbreak Kid.” The fans are in stunned silence. “It’s been an incredible run, I’ve had such a wonderful 27-year career and I couldn’t have wished for a better way to go out. All guns blazing like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. I’ve been doing this since I was 19. By 23 I was coming into each and every one of your homes every week. The idea of now being 46 and not coming in on that TV set, or Blog, is gonna be a little tough to get used to.” The crowd are chanting ‘Please don’t go!’ and ‘Thank you Shawn!’ Shawn says it is him who should be thanking them. He explains how the fans were all he had at one point in his career, and performing for them was the only thing that made him like himself. He thanks various people including Jose Lothario, Marty Jannetty, Vince McMahon, Bret Hart, Jim Ross, Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman, Scott Hall and of course Hunter. He thanks all the guys in the back, the writers, the cameramen, the video editors etc. The fans start chanting ‘One more match!’ HBK smiles, then wryly looks at Triple H. Hunter looks back and just says “Hell no!” The fans laugh as Shawn wraps up his farewell speech. “It has been an honor and a privilege to spend my life coming to this ring and showing off in front of all of you. Now, my last time here is in this new KWF ring and this really is the only place I’d wanna say goodbye. Ladies and gentlemen, The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels has left the building.” ♫Shawn Michaels music♫ «< click to play). The familiar HBK theme blares out as Shawn and Hunter hug in the ring as the fans stand as one to applaud and chant for The Showstopper. Shawn eventually exits the squared circle and makes an emotional final way up the ramp. He stops on the stage and pulls his flexing pose, as his pyro’s go off behind him one last time. He waves goodbye and steps under the raising tron. JR: “Shawn Michaels is in my eyes the greatest sports entertainer of all time. It’s been fantastic to read of him here at KWF Blogs and I’m so glad to be present for his farewell here tonight.” Regal says that Michaels is indeed a legend and declares that there is only one Shawn Michaels.
Once the fans have softened their chanting, Triple H continues. “I bet you all forgot I was here right?” The fans laugh. “Well I guess you’re all wondering what my opinion is on this whole Hogan and Flair thing. Don’t think I didn’t notice we’ve got these yellow ropes, the new tron, Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler have turned into JR and Mr. Bean.” Regal says “I take that as a compliment.” Hunter goes on “But that’s a question for another night. I’ve spent so much time and effort on trying to get the better of The Dark Side that I have been criminally neglecting my own family. From now, I’m taking some time off to be with Stephanie and my little girls. But guys, I will be back. I will have my say on this Hogan/Flair takeover and this Game will play again!” ♫Time to play The Game!♫ «< click to play). Triple H drops the mic and exits as JR and Regal sum up. “Well what a whirlwind fifteen minutes that was. Shawn Michaels has called time on his twenty-seven-year career, and Triple H is taking some time off to be with his family.” Regal: “I can’t believe this is the last time we’re going to see Shawn Michaels. It’s like the end of an era. I don’t do this too often JR, but I tip my cap to Shawn. A true legend of this business and he will be sorely missed. Actually I don’t have a cap, give me yours.”
Back from commercials we watch as Ken Anderson makes his entrance. The Florida fans cheer him as he says that he’s taking pride from the Green Bay Packers and he aims to not make his Title victory a one-hit wonder. He says that Hogan and Flair have put him in this match tonight, just two days after winning the Title. He says that he’s spent this entire year dodging bullets from the World Elite and the entire time it turns out that Hulk Hogan’s been giving him a rough ride because he was backing Wade Barrett all along. “You put on an ugly rouse Hulk, but tonight, I’m keeping the WWE Title whether you like it or not!” Anderson gets the fans in a frenzy stating that he’s a proud Champion and by the end of the night he’ll leave Sunrise still the WWE Champ.
Mr. Anderson vs. Wade Barrett w/ Rob Terry – No Disqualification match for the WWE Title
The bell rings and Anderson stands across the ring with one eye on Rob Terry. William Regal is talking up Wade Barrett and he says how he can’t wait for Wade to regain what is rightfully his here tonight. Anderson feigns to tie up with Barrett, but he then tackles him down and the arena erupts as Ken goes closed-fist to thump Barrett in his face. “That’s not fair! That’s ungentlemanly conduct!” shouts Regal, but JR says “Barrett agreed to this as a No DQ match and that’s exactly what he’s getting. Did you honestly think Anderson was going to lie down? He’s the WWE Champion and he’s fighting to keep the Belt!” Anderson rains down punches on Barrett, but Wade scraps with him to ringside and this is where Rob Terry gets involved. Terry grabs Anderson from behind in a full nelson, but Ken lifts his heel to low blow the Welsh-man! The fans are on their feet as Anderson then goes to grab Barrett, but Wade counters him and then sends him head-first toward the steel steps! “Oh good Lord, Ken Anderson is busted open, that wound from Survivor Series is gushing again here William.” “Good! I’m glad, that moron Anderson is deserving what he gets. How can people like him so much when he calls his fans arsehole, it’s all so untasteful.” Barrett grabs Anderson and bashes his bloody head off the ring apron before getting him back in the ring for Two on the count. Wade next wears Anderson down, focusing on his neck and head, punching at his wound to make him bleed even more. Barrett covers Anderson and this may be it. He gets One, Two, - kick out. The audience murmur as Anderson stays in this thing, but JR says that it may be wiser to fight another day. Regal says that Anderson is too stupid to do that and we watch on as Wade Barrett performs a suplex and that gets another Two on the count as we go to the final commercials of the night.
When we return we see that Wade Barrett is still on top and replays show that Rob Terry bashed Anderson’s head off the ring-post during the commercial break. Barrett has Anderson in the middle of the ring and he covers for One, Two – another kick out and the fans are getting louder and louder as Ken tries to fight back. He gets to one knee and punches Barrett in the gut. Anderson tries to get to his feet, but Barrett elbows him right over his bloody cut. He then goes against the ropes to big boot him right on his forehead and the blood from Anderson’s head sprays everywhere. “For God’s sakes ref, you gotta stop this! This is too barbaric, how is Anderson supposed to defend himself?!” yells JR as Barrett covers again, but again Anderson kicks out. The resilience the WWE Champion is showing is that of a heart of a true Champion, but good lord what’s it gonna take? How is Wade Barrett going to put Ken Anderson away? Barrett shouts orders and asks Rob Terry to hand him a steel chair. Terry gets it, but when Barrett turns around, Ken’s not there. He’s at ringside, crawling along the mat. “He has no idea where he is William, he can’t last much longer.” Anderson stands to wobble and stumble toward the timekeepers corner. Wade Barrett goes out to get him, but as he swings at Anderson with the steel chair *WHAM* Anderson is faster to fire as he smashes Barrett down with the WWE Title! The arena’s roof blows off as Anderson then picks up the steel chair and whacks Rob Terry right over the skull! The crowd cheer and chant Anderson on as he wipes the blood from his eyes. Barrett is now busted open too and we hear JR yell “You can do it Ken! Get Barrett back in the ring and win this thing!” Anderson tries to do exactly that. However, just as he rolls Barrett back in, there’s a rush to the ring; Drew McIntyre, Styler and Mason Ryan all race down. They get in and like a pack of dogs they pounce on Anderson and batter him down. The fans boo as Jim Ross tells how out of order this is. Mason Ryan picks Anderson up and Styler performs a Busby Kick (Shining Wizard) from off the top rope! Drew McIntyre tries to wake his new leader to get the pin and regain the WWE Championship. The crowd boo like hell as Barrett crawls toward Ken, but ♫Awooo♫ «< click to play). “What?!” “What?!” yell JR and Regal as we hear the Wolfpac’s music kick in! Booker T, ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal, The Icon Sting – painted in his red and black Wolfpac face paint along with the Grand Daddy Wolf of them all, Big Sexy Kevin Nash all make their way to the ring. The comms tell that Stevie Ray was taken away to hospital earlier in the show, but the rest of the Red and Black are here and they’re evening out the numbers in this main event match on Wednesday Night Turmoil! The fans are on their feet as Sting comes in to chop and punch and then pull out his black bat to use it to clothesline Drew McIntyre out of the ring. Kevin Nash goes toe-to-toe with Mason Ryan and Nash soon impressively side-walk-slams the big Welshman down. Booker T. goes at Rob Terry at ringside and meanwhile Jay Lethal administers a nice Lethal Combination on Styler in the middle of the ring. The crowd are electric as we watch Ken Anderson pull himself up by the ropes. Wade Barrett too is getting up, but Barrett steps toward Nash. He yells at him as Regal states that the Wolfpac have no right to be out here. JR says that the Wolfpac and the British Invasion have plenty of history from KWF’s Impact SmackDown and now the Grand Daddy Wolf is introducing himself to the new leader of the British Invasion! Wade Barrett shouts at Nash, but Big Sexy twirls his finger to get Barrett to turn around and “Oh nooo!” yells Regal as JR screams “Mic Check! Mic Check!” and Anderson covers for the crowd to yell ‘ONE!’ ‘TWO!’ ‘THREE!’
Winner and Still WWE Champion: Mr. Anderson!
The fans go nuts as Sting comes back in the ring to stand tall with Nash. Ken Anderson has his Belt placed over his battered and exhausted body by the referee and the Wolfpac then make to exit as their job is done. “The British Invasion has been embarrassed! How dare they, those mutts!” “Turnabout is fair play William and the Wolfpac did the right thing in evening out the numbers here. Ladies and gentlemen thank you for being with us. Join us next week for more Wednesday Night Turmoil!”
