We see a slow snapshot recap of how KWF’s Sovereignty 4 concluded this past Sunday in Toronto, Canada. It was AJ Styles defending the KWF World Title in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match against number one contender Rob Van Dam. Styles and Van Dam took one another to the absolute limit, both of them putting on arguably the performances of their careers. However, after battling for the Belt at the top of a ladder, the ladder toppled and both superstars went flying out of the ring and through 4 stacked tables at ringside. Then, KWF Blogs saw an entrance and return from none other than Y2J Chris Jericho. Jericho was not dressed to compete, entering in a suit, holding his Money in the Bank Briefcase and he didn’t even acknowledge the fallen Styles and RVD as he grabbed a ref by the collar and handed him the Briefcase. Jericho took his time as he casually went into the ring, set up a ladder and climbed to soon reach for the KWF World Heavyweight Championship. We hear the reaction of Jim Ross on commentary after this scene had happened: “while Rob Van Dam and AJ Styles have put their bodies on the line for the KWF Title, Chris Jericho has shown up to not even break a sweat. He’s cashed in the Money In The Bank that he won at WrestleMania and now, we do have a new KWF World Heavyweight Champion. I don’t believe this.” We see Chris Jericho raising the KWF World Championship for the very first time, in arguably one of the most shocking and unprecedented conclusions that has ever occurred at a KWF Blogs pay-per-view.
♫Wednesday Night Turmoil’s opening video♫ «< click to watch) airs and we come Live into the JQH Arena. Jim Ross and William Regal bring us in on commentary and they tell that Sovereignty 4 was one of Professional Wrestling’s greatest pay-per-view events of all time. JR says that he’s still in shock that Jericho became World Champion in the way that he did. William Regal says that he’s known Jericho for his entire career: “I’ve fought with him and against him. The man’s always underestimated, but his intelligence is unparalleled. Jericho has waited since KWF WrestleMania to cash in Money in the Bank and he did so in Canada. What a night it was.” JR argues: “Canada or not, I believe Jericho knew that Styles and Van Dam would take each other to the limit. He picked his spot for an easy win and that’s all there is to it. I don’t think Jericho gives a damn about the fans.”
With that we see the arena light turn off like a switch. The fans are excited as is Regal as we hear ♫Break the Walls Doooowwnnnn!♫ «< click to play). There’s an explosion on stage, the lights come back on and Chris Jericho steps out from under the rising tron. He’s dressed in a suit, just as he was this past Sunday and we watch as he walks down the ramp as KWF’s new World Heavyweight Champion. A pocket of the audience cheer Y2J, but the majority boo as JR emphasizes that AJ Styles and Rob Van Dam were robbed at Sovereignty 4. JR: “They fought with heart, battled like their livelihoods depended on it and they broke their bodies for that Belt ladies and gentlemen.” Regal interrupts: “Oh cry me a river Jim. Chris Jericho had every right to cash in Money in the Bank at any time he wanted. He doesn’t give a monkey’s about Styles or Van Dam. Now get over it, the Champion’s got a microphone.” Jericho’s in the ring with a mic in hand. He has a smug smirk on his face and the crowd boo as he says “Thank you! Thank you so very very much.” They boo more as Jericho says that he’d spent most of 2011 trying to become the WCW Champion and TNA World Heavyweight Champion. He says that he was on a mission to hold both those Titles at the very same time and failed that mission. He says that he’s a man that prides himself on winning and so at KWF WrestleMania he entered the Money in the Bank Ladder match and won. Jericho is then booed as he gloats about how he cashed in the Briefcase, but then we hear ♫the music of Edge♫ «< click to play). “Thank God” says JR as KWF’s Rated R General Manager makes his way down to the ring to a great reception from the fans. He’s handed a microphone and waits for the crowd to calm before saying: “I guess you’re pretty proud of yourself huh Chris? You won Money in the Bank, decide to go touring with your band rather than stick around and work under me at this company and then you come back to cash in that contract in Canada at my Sovereignty 4 pay-per-view.” Jericho has a huge grin on his face. Edge says that Rob Van Dam and AJ Styles are two of the most competitive superstars that he’s ever known. He warns Chris Jericho that both of them will be after him now and that by winning the Championship in the way that he did, means that Jericho has a bigger target on his back than any Champion before him. “You see Chris, what you did really pissed me off at first. You ruined my main event at a pay-per-view program that I put on in my hometown. But Chris, what you did had the whole world talking and it made my cell phone buzz all night. I had calls from people telling me what a weasel you are, a nice lady in Baltimore said that she’s never seen a Champion not fight for his Title. A kid from Taiwan fricken e-mailed me and told me to strip you of that Title because you didn’t earn it. Chris, I even had a call from John Cena and he said that you were a punk for taking that Title in the way that you did, and now you call yourself the World Heavyweight Champion.” Jericho finally replies: “Edge, why don’t you shut the hell up! I earned my Title the moment I became Mister Money in the Bank and don’t you get on your high horse and tell me you’d have done otherwise. You know as well as I do how to use that briefcase to win a Title with the minimum of effort. You’re jealous aren’t you Edge? Jealous of the fact that I won this Title in a suit and you can’t even lace up your boots anymore.” Edge looks angry and almost begins pacing on stage. He says that Jericho may not have fought for the Belt and he may have been off the show for the past few months, “but tonight Jericho, our Champion, you’re in the main event. You’re going to be facing a man who once cashed in Money in the Bank against me. A man whom you’ve ducked on KWF Blogs, a man you last faced way back in January at the Honda Center in Anaheim.” Regal asks: “Who is it Jim?” JR: “Well, as I seem to recall, I think it was…” Edge: “CM Punk!” Jericho begins shouting and yelling that Edge can’t do this. He says that he doesn’t want the match, but Edge says that the almighty Y2J can prove his worth here tonight against a man that just defeated Kurt Angle at Sovereignty 4. Jericho yells: “You can’t do this!” as Edge exits with a smile on his face. JR wonders what Jericho’s problem is, but Regal answers: “Oh come on Jim, the man’s just become the Champion. He deserves a break after such a grueling victory.” JR: “Grueling victory? Are you kidding me?!”
Back after commercials the comms tell that indeed the KWF General Manager has booked the new KWF Champion to face CM Punk in tonight’s main event. The crowd are on their feet though as we change tracks to witness the KWF return of Evan Bourne. Bourne looks excited to be back, but this one will be tough. JR: “SummerSlam is set to bring us an Ultimate-X match for the X-Division Title folks and this is the first qualifier for the right to be in that match. Evan Bourne is a super fan favorite, but he’s got a heck of a test on his comeback as he takes on an X-Division pioneer; the Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels.”
Evan Bourne vs. Christopher Daniels – Ultimate-X qualifier
We’re underway for the opening bout of the night and we watch as both men go to lock it up, but Daniels quickly goes behind for a waistlock. Bourne counters to turn and put on a headlock. Daniels pushes him against the ropes and tries to force him away, but Bourne holds on. Daniels attempts another counter, this time a back side suplex and that takes Bourne down. Bourne holds his head after such impact and Daniels covers. Gets One, Two – a quick kick out and this match continues. JR and Regal discuss what an exciting time of year it is when we are on the brink of SummerSlam. JR: “Every year we go to the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Every year we witness an X-Division Ultimate-X match that delights the fans and impresses us with so many innovative and awesome moves. And every year William, SummerSlam seems to crown a new KWF World Heavyweight Champion.” Regal: “Indeed I’m a fan of SummerSlam Jim, but don’t get ahead of yourself with the statement that Edge made earlier. Jericho knows he has a target on his back, every Champion does. Come SummerSlam though, whomever Jericho’s facing, I’m sure he’ll find a way of retaining the KWF Title.” The comms go on to talk further about the X-Division, reminding us that the Champion going into SummerSlam is ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal, after having defeated Austin Aries this past Sunday at Sovereignty 4. The match at hand has gone back and forth in a frantic manner and while Evan does well to show us what he can do, he is a tad ring-rusty and Daniels manages clutch Bourne in position to administer the Angels Wings and that does it; centre of the ring for a cover and Daniels gets the Three.
Winner: Christopher Daniels.
The referee raises Daniels’ hand as he successfully qualifies for Ultimate-X. The comms concur that it’s been a while since Daniels has been the X-Division Champion and with a number of weeks before August 19th, Daniels has plenty of time to prepare for this Title opportunity.
Walking the halls we are zoomed in on the derriere of a KWF Chick. It’s Madison Rayne and she’s walking side by side with our General Manager. Edge tells her that he’s got a hundred and one things on his mind after Sovereignty 4. Edge and Madison then walk into the GM’s Skybox and as the camera follows we see that Bubba-Ray and Devon Dudley are already in there. Devon is at the bar pouring himself a drink and Bubba is slouched all over Edge’s couch. Bubba has a drink in hand already and quite obviously, he’s showing off the fact that he and Devon are still the KWF World Tag Team Champions. He says: “You know, this sofa’s got a few stains on it Edge, you may wanna get your little assistant to clean it up or something.” Madison is instantly angry and she sets to go toward Bubba, but Edge stops her. Devon walks over to them and says: “How ya doing Edge? (He looks at Madison and her scantily clad attire) Madison. You know all people have been talking about is Chris Jericho and his World Title win this past Sunday, and we know that’s not your fault. We know that you had no clue that Jericho would show up and really Edge, my brother Bubba and I find it quite hilarious that your fellow Canadian showed you up in your biggest pay-per-view to date and not only that, but it was in your own hometown. That must really eat you up.” Devon goes and sits on the arm of the couch as Edge then says: “What are you guys doing in here? I mean, can I help you? Is there anything you want?” Bubba: “Cool it tough guy. What we’re here to do is remind you that Jericho is not your biggest problem. You see, I’m sure you have noticed, Devon and I have been running this joint for the past ten months. And by this joint, I mean the Tag Team wrestling division!” Edge guides Madison toward the bar and she takes a seat on the stool. He tries to look relaxed and goes behind the bar to make himself a drink. He calmly says that it’s testament to Tag wrestling that The Dudleys are still the Champs and he says congratulations to them for retaining the Belts at Sovereignty 4. Bubba tells him that The Dudleys know that Edge doesn’t really mean that and they say that they’ll continue to rule Tag Team wrestling because there isn’t a team out there that can even come close to defeating them. Bubba says: “Legacy, Beer Money, Sheamus and Kozlov, The Bucks, LAX, The Usos, The Hart Dynasty – we’ve beaten them all! It’s killing you Edge, we know it, she knows it and it’s killing those frickin moron fans as well.” Devon gets up and so does Bubba. They kick the couch backward and decide to throw the remainder of their drinks to the floor. They go toward the bar and Devon says: “We are the greatest Tag Team of all time. It’s undisputed and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it. Every poster, every TV commercial is all about The Dudley Boyz. It’s always been that way. In Japan, in TNA, in ECW, WCW and way back in the WWF when we used to kick your ass every week.” Bubba pulls Devon by the arm and says: “Haha, c’mon Devon. I think you’re gonna make him cry.” Devon arrogantly whispers: “Testify” as he and Bubba exit and slam the door shut behind them. Edge shakes his head in disapproval and Madison asks Edge what he’s going to do. Edge: “I’ve been thinking about something… I have an idea.” He hands Madison a drink and the scene fades out.
We go to a snapshot video package reminding us of the matches and occurrences at KWF’s Sovereignty 4 pay-per-view this past Sunday in Toronto, Canada. It was a night where Panther put Kaitlyn on the line against King Dolph Ziggler. Kurt Angle and CM Punk went toe-to-toe in a Three Falls match – but the fans got a lot more than they’d bargained for. AJ Lee successfully defended the Women’s Title and ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal won his first KWF X-Division Championship. The Dudley Boyz retained their KWF Tag Titles against Samoa Joe and Daniel Bryan and we saw an epic battle between the irresistible force against the immovable object as The Absolute Lashley took on Kane in a WrestleMania rematch. The highly anticipated main event was a TLC match for the KWF World Heavyweight Championship between Rob Van Dam and AJ Styles. To find out what happened and to read the entire show, click HERE now!
Back at ringside we’re with JR and Regal at the announcers table. They tell us that AJ Styles and RVD put on a match that will be etched in the memories of wrestling fans forever. However, they are carrying minor injuries, but we expect to see them back on KWF Blogs next week right here on Turmoil. Regal: “Sovereignty 4 was amazing Jim and so much has happened already here tonight that we haven’t even been able to tell our audience what to expect from the rest of the show.” JR: “Yes William. Indeed folks we already know that Chris Jericho will face CM Punk in tonight’s Turmoil main event. We also expect to see Women’s Champion AJ Lee in action against Layla and after winning a woman this past Sunday, King Dolph is putting on a coronation ceremony to crown Kaitlyn as his new Queen.” Regal: “That should be brilliant Jim, I can’t wait!”
We are back in the arena and Daniel Bryan is making his entrance. He comes out to the fans delight, as JR and Regal remind us that he and Joe came up short against The Dudleys this past Sunday. Regal: “Admittedly they showed some good work individually, but as I predicted, it was the teamwork of Bubba Ray and Devon that won the match. You could put two of the greatest of all time in that ring, but if the chemistry isn’t there, then you won’t beat an outfit like The Dudleys.” Samoa Joe heads to the ring as JR explains that Edge has given them another chance to prove themselves here tonight. “And he’s pitting them against another experienced Tag Team, The Hart Dynasty, who return after being injured by The Dudleys following their Tag Title match at Turbulence a few months back.”
Samoa Joe and Daniel Bryan vs. The Hart Dynasty
The match begins with D-Bryan up against Tyson Kidd, and it’s an exciting exhibition of X-Division action. Kidd works faster than Bryan, but the American Dragon is quicker of mind and reverses most of Tyson’s attempt at offense. Kidd goes for a swinging neckbreaker, but Bryan takes it over and turns it into a backslide, getting Two. Bryan then hits Kidd with a series of kicks, backing him into the corner by Joe. They make the tag and now Joe comes in, pummeling Kidd with shots before leaping up and acrobatically kicking him in the head. Joe tags Bryan back in and they seem to be working better together as a team. Bryan hits some knife-edge chops and is getting the crowd behind him, but he misses a Shining Wizard attempt and Kidd rolls him up, getting One on the cover, Two, but only Two. Tyson tags out to DH Smith, and Bryan immediately brings Joe back in. The two bigger men are legal now, and they trade blows back and forth. Joe gets the upperhand, but Smith soon powers his way back into contention, squashing Joe in the corner, before managing to impressively lift him up and down in a sidewalk slam. He tags in Kidd who springs over the top rope and lands a leg drop, covering and getting Two. Kidd tags Smith back in and he works a submission on Joe, cranking the neck, before getting him back to his feet and lifting him for the Hart Attack. However, before Tyson can jump in following a tag to Smith’s back, Joe elbows Smith, causing him to drop him. Tyson has leapt up onto the top rope, but not jumped off as he sees Joe get free. This lapse causes him to lose his balance and fall precariously onto the rope. Joe grabs Kidd and marches him back into the ring, prime for a Muscle Buster! He hooks the leg and the referee counts Three.
Winners: Samoa Joe and Daniel Bryan.
♫Joe’s music♫ «< click to play) hits as Bryan comes in to celebrate with him. JR comments on how impressive Joe and Bryan were as a team despite their setback at Sovereignty. Regal: “Yes but they looked good before the pay-per-view, this win doesn’t mean much.” JR: “I disagree William. They beat a legitimate Tag Team here, and looked good doing it. They worked far better as a team, and seem to have learned from Sunday. That’s what great teams do, learn from their mistakes.”
We head backstage to Edge’s Skybox where he is looking on, pleased with what he saw from hid Tag Team match of the night. He hears a knock and turns to see Panther in the doorway. “Hey buddy, come on in.” Panther doesn’t look in the mood for pleasantries. “Look Edge, you saw what happened at Sovereignty, that poor excuse for a King has got my woman. Now I know she’s not a Title Belt, as she expressly told me several times, but I should get a rematch nonetheless. Dolph only beat me because of a misunderstanding, so…” Edge stops him: “Hold on man, I know it must suck, losing a hot Chick like Kaitlyn to Dolph, and I know it was a good old fashioned foot on the rope mistake that cost you, but fact is Dolph won fair and square. There was no rematch clause written into the contract, so I’m afraid my hands are tied. Sorry bro, and look, maybe its time you took a little break from the ring. You’ve been doing this non-stop since we started over three years ago, and honestly, you look exhausted. I don’t know if that’s from wrestling, or too much hide and seek with Kaitlyn, but I think it’s best if you take a break from KWF for a while.” Panther doesn’t look like he agrees, but Edge goes on: “Now although you need a break from the ring to clear your head, I do have a little assignment for you if you’re up for it. I need you to get back into contact with an old friend of yours.” Panther looks confused: “What old friend? Not Lashley, I ain’t goin’ near that!” Edge: “Not him no. I am sick and tired of seeing those damn Dudleys winning Title match after Title match, and then coming in here and rubbing my face in it. I want to be impartial, and I want to do what’s best for the KWF, but Bubba makes me want to Spear him right through that glass window and into the crowd. Now of course I can’t do that, and it seems neither can any Tag Team in the KWF. The Dudleys have worked their way through almost everyone, but I have another team in mind who can beat them, I’m sure of it.” Panther still looks confused: “Who the hell are you talking about?” Edge looks over his shoulder, before whispering it in Panther’s ear. Panther: “Gambit?!” Edge looks stone faced back at him. “Say it louder man, seriously. Yes, Gambit, and once you find him, he’ll find the others.” Panther: “Look, me and Gambit go way back, he’s not a problem for me, but I don’t know about the others. The Joker Kelly, Christy - Abyss as well, they’re all a bit… psycho-ish.” Edge: “So’s Remy, and that’s what I need. That unpredictable fearless craziness. Jeff Hardy was there when it was him and Matt against me and Christian against The Dudley Boyz. He’s the only one that can deal with them and beat them.” Panther is very unsure: “But he’s not Jeff Hardy though is he, he’s The Joker. A man who has no plans other than to cause chaos. When Why So Serious were here before they torched Title Belts, they threatened people with knives, even Christy ‘Harley Quinn’ Hemme frightened me. If I’m going to do this, you have to be very sure, very very sure.” Edge nods and thinks, before saying: “I’m sure. Now get out of here, I’m sure you don’t want to be around later when Dolph crowns his new Queen. Go find Remy, and take a cameraman with you. I want regular updates and constant communication.” Panther sighs and nods: “Okay man, I’ll go find him. But you better know exactly what you’re getting us all into here.” Edge smiles: “Oh I know, I read KWF Blogs way before I got the GM gig. Come on Panth’… Why So Serious?” Panther rolls his eyes and exits. Edge smiles to himself, but then a slight look, perhaps of momentary doubt, crosses his face as we head to commercial.
Back Live at ringside we see that Layla is already in the ring. ♫AJ Lee’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and we watch as the retaining Women’s Champion makes her way to the ring. JR talks about AJ’s successful Title defense at Sovereignty 4 but William Regal interrupts: “Forget that for a moment Jim, did you hear what Edge just did? He’s sending Panther to go find Why So Serious!? Is he mad?!” JR: “To be honest William, I’m avoiding talking about that at all. The thought of that outfit back on KWF Blogs is terrifying. I’m truly in shock about this and I hope Edge knows what he’s doing.” AJ is cheered by the fans as Regal says: “You’re right Jim, best to avoid even thinking about Why So Serious. Panther couldn’t find a win on Sunday, I don’t expect him to track down the elusive Remy LeBeau. Let’s go to Layla, come on girl, show us what you’ve got.”
Layla vs. AJ Lee
JR comments on the fact that William Regal is still very much in the corner of his old British Invasion colleague. Regal tells us that he’s hoped for the best for all his previously mentored Brits, but now they’re of course in the capable hands of Wade Barrett. JR wonders how much longer it’s going to be before we see Wade Barrett back on KWF Blogs. “None of the British Invasion have been successful without Barrett’s leadership. That’s clear for all to see.” Regal: “Oh I can’t disagree Jim. Indeed Wade has seen the fall of his empire from afar since breaking his arm. Fear not though, he will be back. He’ll be back and he’ll take the Brits to the top once again.” The Chicks had circled one another and begun with Layla on top, crushing AJ over her back with forearm shots. She decks her opponent and rolls her to cover, but AJ kicks out at One. Layla then gets Lee to sit and she puts a knee into her back while grabbing around her face for a modified rear chinlock. Regal says that Layla has one heck of a mean streak in her and that given the opportunity, she will soon find herself in contention for the Women’s Championship. JR says how impressed he’s been with AJ, telling that she’s only been less than a year in KWF Blogs before becoming the Champion at KWF WrestleMania. “She’s a spitfire in that squared circle, a perfect embodiment of character and will not to quit, to keep going and do everything she can to win. And win legally I might add.” Regal asks what JR is getting at and Ross explains that AJ’s withstood challenges from the likes of The Beautiful People and Melina. Women who cheat and take what they want. AJ’s wrestled fairly throughout her career on KWF Blogs and with Layla pulling Lee’s hair and holding her tights on a small package, Lee’s again having to deal with yet another sly opponent here. AJ’s fearless though and we watch as she gets back in the match, performing a nice cross-body that takes Layla down for Two. Layla gets up and attempts a clothesline, but AJ grabs the arm and ducks to swing round the back of her opponent. Regal: “No way.” JR: “What a move!” AJ successfully administers the Octopus submission maneuver and Layla waits as much as she can, but she can’t reach the ropes and AJ gets the victory.
Winner by way of Submission: AJ Lee.
The crowd are on their feet to applaud as AJ is handed her Women’s Championship. JR says that Lee is in the form of her life and she deserves everything she’s getting because she’s earned it. Regal is disappointed that a British Invasion member has lost yet again, stating: “I can’t wait until Wade comes back.”
Without knocking, Kurt Angle bursts into Edge’s Skybox and goes to Edge on the couch. Edge stands up and Angle yells at him for putting CM Punk in tonight’s main event: “I should be in the main event! I beat Punk on Sunday, the guy’s a loser, how can you be picking him over me?” Edge: “For God’s sakes Kurt get a grip! Punk beat you on Sunday, Five Falls, remember?!” Angle: “It ended as Five Falls, but I won the original match, the Three Falls match, the match we signed up for. I won Two-to-One, the whole world saw it! Punk couldn’t take it so he challenged me to Five Falls and I don’t stray from challenges Edge, I don’t!” Edge says that he understands how angry Angle is, but the fact remains that the main event tonight is final because CM Punk had his hand raised at Sovereignty. Edge: “Go be a man and deal with it Kurt.” Angle exits, furious that he’s not gotten what he wanted.
♫Go! If you close your eyes, your life, a naked truth revealed!♫ «< click to play). Christian Cage heads down to the ring with his Intercontinental Title around his waist. He gets on the mic and says “A few weeks ago, I showed everyone what a great Champion I am. I reached out and I gave a once in a lifetime opportunity to a superstar so that they could bask in the glory on my Intercontinental Championship. I gave a Title shot to Zack Ryder, and although he came up short of course, it was still an outstanding show of generosity on my part. I seems not everyone agreed, but people being wrong is not my fault. As Intercontinental Champion, I have taken it upon myself to give another shot to another superstar who has been overlooked. Someone who, in my opinion, deserves a chance to show their worth and have a Title shot right here tonight. So please, can my opponent come down to this ring and receive this gift on behalf of the greatest Champion in this company today.” Christian and the fans wait, and then the ♫music of Eric Young♫ «< click to play) hits. The popular goof looks as happy as ever to be getting a Title shot, but JR is not so perky. “Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for EY, but has he really earned this? Or is Christian yet again handing out Title shots to people he knows he can beat so he can put off the thirty day defense ruling again?” Regal: “You always have to be disrespectful don’t you Jim? EY may be useless, but Christian is doing this out of the kindness of his heart, and I for one applaud him for it.”
Christian Cage vs. Eric Young – Intercontinental Title match
The bell rings, and EY sportingly holds out his hand to shake with Christian before they get underway. Christian smiles and nods, before shaking his hand, then kicking him in the gut. The fans boo as Cage gets to work on his challenger. He backs him into the corner and hits a knee to the gut, before a snapmare into the middle of the ring, and a leap off the middle rope sees Cage hit an elbow to the head of EY. JR reminds us that after winning the Intercontinental Title from Randy Orton, Christian has done everything in his power to avoid losing it. He injured Orton to the point where he has been unable to have a rematch, then he issued a challenge to Zack Ryder, picking up a relatively straight-forward win and ensuring he could not be forced to defend for another thirty days. Tonight he has done the same by inviting Young down for a Title match. “Don’t get me wrong, Ryder and Young are very talented individuals, but Christian knows that if he let Edge make the match, he could be facing the likes of Matt Morgan, Samoa Joe, R-Truth or CM Punk. The Intercontinental Title is a massively important Belt in the KWF, but Christian is making it somewhat of a mockery by exploiting this loophole. And I’m sure our General Manager Edge doesn’t like this one bit.” Cage has continued on top on this one, but gets a shock as he gets elbowed out of the corner and now EY is mounting some attack. He hits a series of clotheslines, before lifting Christian onto his shoulders and spinning him around and around. He finally puts him down and Cage is dizzy, as is Young, who stumbles and falls out of the ring. The fans laugh as Christian breathes heavily on the canvas. He peers over the edge of the apron, but Young grabs the fabric skirt on the side of the ring and pulls it over Cage’s head, before hammering him with shots. Christian is able to get free and he rolls back toward the centre of the ring. Young climbs to the top rope. He leaps off, but gets met with a dropkick. Cage isn’t messing about now, and signals for the KillSwitch. As Young gets up, Christian has it engaged, and nails it. He hooks the leg and gets One, Two and Three.
Winner and Still Intercontinental Champion: Christian Cage.
Christian has his arm raised, but looks as though that was more problematic than he anticipated. JR: “Quite a scare there for the Intercontinental Champ, but he came through it, and we wonder who he’s going to challenge next, or if he’s just going to bring a cardboard cutout of a wrestler into the ring and challenge that.” Regal: “Now now, there’s no need for sarcasm. To be fair, Eric Young is better than cardboard, but Christian, like a true fighting Champion, put him in his place and retained his Gold. I for one am proud of our Intercontinental Champion. Well done that man!”
Edge is watching from his Skybox, shaking his head at what he just saw. There is a knock on the door and Austin Aries is standing there. He goes over to Edge and argues that he wants a one-on-one rematch against Jay Lethal for the X-Division Title. Edge: “Please Austin, come on in, oh you already have. Look, I get this after every pay-per-view, all the guys and gals who lost their Titles come in here and demand their rematches. I have no idea why because it’s in your freakin’ contract, just drop me a text and let me know when and where you want it.” Aries says: “Fine, SummerSlam.” And goes to leave, but Edge stops him. “Whoa wait a sec there Aries. You want your rematch at SummerSlam? No can do amigo. You must know the deal, every SummerSlam we celebrate with that all time favorite, Ultimate-X. We had a qualifier for it earlier, weren’t you paying attention? But tell you what, seeing as you have a rematch clause, I’ll put you in the match alongside Lethal, Daniels and five other guys.” Aries: ”Wait, that’s not fair. Have my rematch against seven people? No, I want it one-on-one!” Edge: “Wow, for a guy who claims he’s the ‘greatest man who ever lived’, you don’t sound very confident in your own abilities. I mean you don’t even think you can win an itty bitty Ultimate-X match? Alright, if you’re not all that good then…” Aries interrupts: “Hold on there sparky, I’m AM the greatest man that ever lived, and of course I can win Ultimate-X, I could win it if there were a hundred guys in there. In fact, book it, because when I do win and pull that Belt down from the X, I’ll hold it up real high so you can see it from your precious Skybox.” Aries exits. Edge smirks, before holding up a book titled ‘Reverse Psychology for Dummies’.
♫The music of King Dolph♫ «< click to play) hits, and the 2012 KWF King of the Ring makes his way down to the squared circle, dressed in his robe, crown and holding his scepter as always. He has a huge smile on his face as he goes through the ropes and gets on the mic. “This past Sunday, I skinned a certain cat, and my prize for slaying Panther was to take his trophy wench from his side. She is now my Queen, proving once again that whatever the King wants, the King gets. Now without further ado, let me please introduce the new Queen of the KWF, and she’s all mine, the lovely Kaitlyn!” Kaitlyn comes down to the ring in a t-shirt and jeans, and does not look happy to be there. JR comments on it, but Regal puts it down to nerves. “It’s not every day you become a Queen, just weekends for you JR so I’ve heard, haha.” Ziggler holds the ropes apart from Kaitlyn to step through, which she reluctantly does. He asks her to take a seat in the royal throne, but before the coronation, he has more talking to do. “Kaitlyn, at Sovereignty I defeated Panther and won you fair and square. Now I could order you around, force you to be my servant, make you do… other stuff. But I am a noble King, and I have decided to make you my Queen, and my equal. You shall enjoy all the perks that I do, and I have a feeling I’ll be enjoying a couple of perks as well.” JR: “This is outrageous, she’s not an object to be won in a raffle!” Regal: “Fully agreed. She’s an object to be won in a wrestling match.” Dolph: “And with Panther out of the way on some wild goose chase for Edge, we can be together and rule the KWF as the power couple everyone will want to see.” Kaitlyn looks like she’s gagging on Dolph’s words. The King then proceeds with the coronation, handing her a scepter, wrapping a robe around her, and finally placing a tiara on her head. Dolph announces her to be known from this day forth as “Queen Kaitlyn!” There are boos around the crowd, including from the Queen herself. Dolph doesn’t acknowledge it, and tells Kaitlyn they are to “make haste” backstage where a royal feast has been prepared. His music hits again and he exits the ring. As he turns his back, Kaitlyn takes the robe off, and throws the scepter to the floor tosses the tiara into the crowd. She then reaches into her jeans and pulls out a Liverpool soccer jersey, and puts it on. She exits the ring and walks straight past a shocked Ziggler. As she does, we see that her shirt has the name ‘Panther’ on the back. The fans cheer her actions as she storms off to the back, and an angry Dolph follows. JR: “Good for her! You may have won her ‘services’ Dolph, but her heart still belongs to someone else. Kaitlyn doesn’t care if you are the King.” Regal: “What an ungrateful cow, and fancy besmirching our fine show with a Liverpool top. She could have borrowed my Blackpool one if she wanted. Come on you Tangerines!” JR: “What the hell are you talking about?”
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.
Following the SummerSlam commercial we watch as two lovely ladies, Angelina Love and Velvet Sky, walk the halls to eventually get to the door of KWF’s General Manager. They try to go in, but it’s locked. Velvet bangs on the door and Madison answers: “What?!!!” She’s angry as the comms voiceover that Edge has had people coming in and out of his Skybox all night. The Beautiful People say that they want to talk to Edge, but Madison says that he’s got a headache: “Can I give him a message?” The BP say that Angelina wants the next opportunity at the KWF Women’s Championship because she won the Canadian Fatal-4-Way last week on Turmoil. Madison says that Angelina can demand all she wants, but there’s a line of KWF Chicks that want a Title match and Angelina is not at the front of the line. Velvet: “How the hell would you know? Edge makes the decisions, not you.” Madison says that she’ll tell Edge what The Beautiful People want, but warns that they shouldn’t hold their breath. Rayne slowly closes the door saying that: “I’m sure Edge will have an announcement on the new number one contender for the Chicks Title in the weeks leading up to SummerSlam. Ta-ta for now ladies.” The door closes and we hear it lock. The Beautiful People aren’t very happy.
We’re back at ringside and we’re just about set for our main event of the evening. JR and Regal take us through footage of what happened at the opening of the night where General Manager Edge told the new KWF Champion that he’d be in action Live tonight against none other than CM Punk. ♫CM Punk’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and the crowd are on their feet. Regal: “Haha, look at him Jim. One half-arsed victory and already he’s got that Best in the World t-shirt back on.” JR: “Well, by no means was it a half-you-know-what victory against Kurt Angle, and CM Punk has never been that short of confidence. He’s been through a heck of an ordeal with that losing streak and tonight he has the chance to impress against the new World Champ and I think Punk’s going to take it. If he believes he’s the very Best, then he’ll believe that he can win this match-up.” CM Punk’s name is chanted all through Springfield. The lights go out and the crowd begin to boo as ♫Chris Jericho’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and Punk rotates his wrists as we get set for a blockbuster Turmoil main event.
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho
Chris Jericho still looks peeved to be facing Punk. He goes at Punk quickly with the Championship Belt, but Punk ducks and turns to kick at Jericho and this makes Jericho drop the Title. The ref calls for the bell to start the match and Punk knees Jericho to the canvas before leaning over to pick up the KWF Championship, raise it and shout “Best in the Woorrllldd!” The crowd go nuts as JR says that CM Punk certainly looks like he has his mojo back and Regal says that Chris Jericho deserves better than this. JR: “Oh sure, he wins the Title in a suit and then he tries a cheap shot with the Title Belt before this match even starts. Chris Jericho is deplorable, a disgrace as Champion.” Regal: “Shut up Jim. That’s your opinion and might I remind you that your views don’t count for a bloody penny.” Punk hands the Belt to the ref, but while the referee goes to pass the Belt to the timekeeper, Jericho gets up to rake the eyes of Punk. The crowd boo as he then sends his opponent shoulder-first between the turnbuckles and into the ring-post. The crowd boo as Jericho exits the ring. He walks by the timekeeper’s corner and grabs a microphone. “Best in the world? Best in the world huh Junior?!” Jericho grabs his Title and walks down past the apron and goes to where Punk is laid between the buckles. Punk manages to get back to the canvas while Jericho trash-talks. “I am the best in the world in everything I do. And while I was so rudely interrupted at the opening of this show, I want you all to know, I want Edge to know and I want every single jackass in the locker room to know that this Title is mine now. And it will never leave my possession ever again.” Jericho then drops the mic and sets to walk off up the ramp and the referee’s count is already on Eight. The crowd boo as Jericho seems fine with losing this match via Count-out, but CM Punk isn’t standing for it. He rushes out the ring and this restarts the ref’s count. He clobbers Jericho from behind and hits him with lefts, rights, a backchop and a roundhouse kick right upside the Champ’s head. The Title drops to the ramp and Punk picks Jericho up to lead him back to the ring. JR: “This is what Professional Wrestling is all about. A great comeback from Punk here and we’ll be back ladies and gentlemen.” We go to our final commercial break of the night.
We’re back Live and the crowd are on their feet as CM Punk is fully in control of the match. We go split-screen and the comms show us how Punk performed his running high knee to the corner before nailing Jericho with a bulldog and getting Two on the cover. Punk has Jericho down now and he sets to climb to the top turnbuckle to attempt a Macho Man-like diving elbow. Punk goes for it, but Jericho moves out the way and both men are down. The audience don’t know which way this is going to go as the comms discuss Chris Jericho’s mannerisms as Champion so far. Regal says that Jericho has the power of a Champion now and that he doesn’t have to compete if he doesn’t want to. JR argues that Jericho is an employee of the Keystone Wrestling Federation. A company that has Edge as the GM and so whatever Edge says goes. Regal accuses Edge of abusing his power, but JR laughs it off as a ridiculous notion: “Edge has been a model General Manager. He knows the business and he’s had guidance from Bret Hart in running this company. He’s done an excellent job and I maintain that Chris Jericho hasn’t done himself any favors. Screwing over your fellow man is one thing, but Jericho literally walked into an already established match and cashed in Money in the Bank. No one has done that in the way Jericho did because most at least have the respect for the Title that one must cash in the contract against one opponent. Not two and not during a match that is already happening.” Regal: “So Jericho’s unsportsmanlike, and he’s morally wrong?” JR: “Exactly.” Regal: “D’you think he cares?” JR: “No, and it’s a damn shame that he doesn’t. The KWF Title is the world’s top Championship. A union of the WWE and TNA Championships. You gotta have more respect for the Belt than that of Jericho.” We watch as Jericho gets up and goes toward Punk to grab his legs and turn him into a Walls of Jericho. The crowd boo as Jericho sits back on the move. Punk tries as much as he can to claw toward the ropes. Regal laughs at the fact that Punk may start another losing streak right away, but he’s wrong as Punk gets his hand on the bottom. The referee demands that Jericho break the hold, but he keeps it locked on for 4.5 of the referee’s count. The ref tells him off, but wait, creeping down the ramp we see Kurt Angle. Angle grabs the KWF Championship from the ramp and he sees Punk hanging over the bottom rope and *BAM* Angle nails him with the Title! The crowd boo like hell as Angle drops the smoking gun and walks backward up the ramp. The Olympian has a huge smile on his face as Jericho pulls Punk by the legs away from the ropes and he covers for the inevitable Three.
Winner: Chris Jericho.
Jericho raises his hands and celebrates as if this is his KWF Championship victory. The crowd boo like hell as CM Punk regains awareness. His head is cut open following that hellacious shot from Angle and the World Title. Angle grins arrogantly as he takes away CM Punk’s momentum. JR: “My God, I can’t believe this. Kurt Angle is purely unprofessional. He’s way out of line, he had no business out here.” Regal: “Haha, calm down Jim. There’s no point in you moaning. Jericho would have won this match anyway.” JR: “We don’t know that. CM Punk could have gone on to win this contest, but no, a main event is ruined by an interference again and this time it’s because of Kurt Angle. Damn it Kurt!” Jericho picks up his Belt from ringside and raises it to the booing audience as Turmoil fades out.
