The pyro’s explode in the Sovereign Center as we gear up for the final Wednesday Night Turmoil before this Sunday’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view. Good Ol’ JR Jim Ross brings us in as always. “What a night it promises to be as we head towards Bound For Glory! I’m Jim Ross joined as ever by my broadcast colleague William Regal, and William, why don’t you tell the delightful folks at home what we have in store for them here tonight?” Regal: “Delightful folks? I’ve seen some of them on Twitter, they’re anything but delightful. Anyway, I may not think much of Edge our GM, but I must say he’s lined up quite a card here in Reading. We are going to see two gorgeous women battle it out as Eve Torres takes on the Women’s Champion Kaitlyn, the former Intercontinental Champion Christian Cage goes up against the big buffoon that is Brodus Clay, and two of the greatest lightweight competitors in the industry today are in action as Austin Aries goes one-on-one with Daniel Bryan.” JR: “An old rivalry being picked up there in what should be a great contest, but that’s not all William. We had tonight’s main event confirmed on KWF’s Twitter page over the past couple of days. We knew that the KWF Champion CM Punk and the number one contender Samoa Joe would be in tag action tonight, and they will be teaming up together to take on those damn Dudleys!” Regal: “Absolutely fantastic Jim, that is huge. Samoa Joe has had a fair few run-ins with Bubba and Devon recently, as has our GM, but what a fascinating contest that should be with the KWF Champ thrown in for good measure.”
The comms are interrupted by the ♫music of Alberto Del Rio♫ «< click to play), who enters in an Aston Martin DB5. JR mentions that Alberto specifically requested that car for the evening, as it features in the upcoming James Bond movie, ‘Skyfall’. Regal: “It’s a great car, and suits Alberto down to the ground. Look, he’s even wearing a suit. The name’s Del Rio, Alberto Del Rio.” JR: “We know who he is, Ricardo Rodriguez just burst our damn eardrums telling us.” Alberto is in the ring and on the mic, getting to business straight away as he says he is starting the show tonight to get the attention of one man. “Edge! I want you to come down to this ring, right now!” After a pause, ♫Edge’s music♫ «< click to play) hits, and the General Manager of the KWF makes his way to the squared circle. He plays to the fans, making Del Rio wait in the process. Eventually he settles down and starts by saying to Alberto that nobody calls out the GM like that, but should they have the audacity to, then it better be followed by a “please.” He demands that Alberto says please before he allows him to talk again. “Edge, I don’t have time for your…” Edge: “Bup-bup-bup! That isn’t please. Come Alby, it’s just one word.” ADR: “My name is Alberto Del…” Edge: “Unless your name is Alberto Del Please, I couldn’t give a rat’s ass.” The crowd laugh, but Del Rio is seething, and finally grits his teeth and says “Edge… please can I discuss something urgent with you?” Edge smiles and says “No!” and goes to leave. Alberto starts to freak out, but Edge comes back laughing. “I’m just kidding Alby, of course. Go ahead, what’s on your mind?” Del Rio consults Rodriguez and gathers himself. He tells Edge that enough is enough. That he has been overlooked for too long, and that he deserves to be on the card at Bound For Glory. “I defeated Mr. Anderson when I came back from suspension; I made him tap out in the middle of this ring, so surely I should be a part of the Intercontinental Title match on Sunday.” Edge thinks for a moment before saying “No, no you shouldn’t. See, Christian, as much of a tool as he is for helping you against Anderson, is due a one-on-one rematch for that Belt, and he’ll get that on Sunday. And then after that, a certain Randy Orton is due a Title match thanks to the Feast or Fired briefcase he acquired at the last pay-per-view, Casino Warfare. So Alby, I can only say to you what I say to everyone who asks me for a Title shot, get in line and damn well earn it!” ADR: “Earn it? I have done nothing but earn it! I beat these burros time and again, but I am still cast aside. Do I have to beat everyone on the roster to get my opportunity perro huh?” Edge: “No-one’s saying you have to do that, just wrestle well, wrestle often, and catch the eye. People may think differently, but I call this whole business down the middle. I don’t care if you’re Alberto Del Rio or Eric Young, everyone gets an equal chance to impress me and earn Title shots. Fact is Alberto, you haven’t done that yet. But win matches, regularly, and you will be rewarded.” Alberto scoffs at this. “Rewarded? I am a reward to the wrestling industry! The KWF should be honored that I even turn up to these dump towns.” The fans boo, and this also angers Edge to the point where he informs Del Rio that he will be able to start proving himself tonight, in a match, against R-Truth. Del Rio is less than pleased, and storms off out of the ring and up the ramp, with Rodriguez following. ♫Edge’s music♫ «< click to play) hits as JR sums up how Del Rio must be feeling. “He looks like he just got kicked in the bread-basket by a government mule. Alberto will be in action later on, but after the commercial break, we’ve got the X-Division!” Regal: “Ball game! Wait, I can’t pull that off can I?”
Austin Aries vs. Daniel Bryan
They circle one another, but Aries refuses a handshake before the match properly commences. Regal: “Where’s this respect of the X-Division you’re always bleating on about JR?” JR: “That certainly exists among most of the locker room, but as we alluded to earlier in the show, these two have a history. Daniel Bryan was the X-Division Champion, and about five months ago, Aries was his challenger. They had two grueling but exhilarating bouts, both of which went in the favor of A-Double. Despite that, it’s Bryan that is the one who wants to shake on it, and Aries who refused. I guess when he calls himself the ‘Greatest man that ever lived’, he truly only means in terms of wrestling ability.” Regal: “What else matters to a man?” Bryan has started well, hitting A-Double with chops and kicks, sending him to the mat before booting him in the torso several times. Aries soon manages to recover and get the upper hand though, forcing Bryan down with an arm drag takedown, before a forward Russian leg sweep. He soon reverts to illegally choking Bryan in the corner. He is forced to back up on the refs orders, but hits a hard right on Bryan, before walking into the middle of the ring with a cocky swagger. Bryan falls across the middle rope, which allows Aries to leap over the top and hit a Macho Neck Snap, before continuing his posing at ringside as we go to commercial.
When we return, Aries is working Bryan over on the outside. The comms review footage of what happened during commercials and we see that Aries had gone back into the ring to dump Bryan at ringside. He then measured before sprinting full speed against the far ropes to come back and suicide dive right out at Bryan. Back Live now, Austin Aries is attempting to throw his opponent into the steel steps. However, Bryan leaps up onto them, before jumping back and kicking Aries right in the mush. There’s a cheer from the fans as Bryan has gotten himself back into this match in an instant, and he rolls Aries back in the ring, before covering and getting Two. He picks Aries up and Irish whips him into the corner, before racing over and hitting a dropkick. He is pumped up now, and goes for the LeBell Lock, but Aries is quick to get to the ropes. Bryan is forced to break and both men get to their feet. The match continues to go back and forth, with reversals aplenty as they appear to be cancelling one another out. Bryan hits a front missile dropkick, a cravate suplex and a running leg lariat, as well as hitting a series of vicious kicks. Aries, however, is also able to connect with a running jumping delayed knee drop, a Death Valley driver onto the ring apron, and a shin breaker followed by a leg hook Saito suplex. Aries finally seems to have the upper hand, and signals for the Brain Buster. He lifts Bryan up, but knees to the head, cause him to collapse, and Bryan lands on top of him. In one swift move, Bryan has the LeBell Lock on again, and Aries is in trouble. He’s dead centre in the middle of the ring and cannot get to the ropes. He holds on for dear life, but as Bryan increases the pressure, Aries is left with no choice, and he taps out.
Winner by way of Submission: Daniel Bryan.
JR: “He did it! Bryan made Aries tap. He’s finally beaten A-Double.” Regal: “Meaningless now Jim, there’s no Title on the line, but I must say that was one heck of a contest. Well done to both men.” JR: “Indeed, kudos to each man, but it’s Daniel Bryan who triumphs on this occasion.” Bryan climbs the turnbuckles to face the fans, and he chants “Yes! Yes! Yes!” in celebration.
Last Wednesday night it we anticipated a great main event when two Feast or Fired winners faced off; it was Samoa Joe vs. Randy Orton. Also on Turmoil we were treated to X-Division tag team action as X-Champion Christopher Daniels teamed with Rey Mysterio to take on Daniels’ number one contender Sin Cara and his partner, KWF newcomer, Jack Evans. We saw Cody Rhodes vs. Zack Ryder in a Hardcore match. Tamina took on Natalya. Drew McIntyre faced Kofi Kingston and The Dudleys attacked The Usos, but after an appearance from Harley Quinn, The Usos got themselves a little payback. Click HERE to read the full show and take in all that is KWF Blogs!
We go to JR and Regal at ringside and they tell that last week’s Turmoil was certainly a great way to prepare ourselves toward Bound For Glory week. They then change tack toward the X-Division. JR: “Ladies and gentlemen what we’re about to show you is a series of snapshot images that make up this story of what happened in Monterrey, Mexico this past weekend. Sin Cara was there doing promotional work for KWF Blogs. As the number one contender for the X-Division Title, Edge sent him to his home country to make the most of his current spotlight. However (pictures come up on screen) as we can see from our KWF Magazine photographer, an un-invited Christopher Daniels showed up at an autograph signing session right outside a radio station in Monterrey.” From the pictures we can see that Cara was a guest on a radio show and then afterward he stuck around to sign autographs. His fans were there in numbers, but the party was spoilt when Christopher Daniels made his appearance. From what we can interpret via the pictures, Daniels was completely disrespectful and he attacked Sin Cara in front of all his fans! Regal: “It all looks very brutal Jim, and I admit it doesn’t reflect too well on Daniels, but what was Edge thinking? Daniels is the Champion. You don’t send a number one contender for promotional work, you send a Champion. This is all on Edge in my view.” JR: “Aww come on. This is Sin Cara’s first one-on-one X-Division Title match under Edge in the KWF. Edge had every right to pat Cara on the back, send him home and get him jee’d up for Bound For Glory. It was supposed to be a heartwarming story, where Cara went home, saw his fans, his family then went to Bound For Glory to win the X-Division Title for all of them. But Daniels, he made himself an enemy of Mexico by what he did. He was jealous that Sin Cara got the spotlight and now” – Regal interrupts: “And now, the spotlight’s on Daniels, just the way it should be!” The comms talk some more and tell that neither Cara nor Daniels are here tonight, but they’ll both be at logger-horns this Sunday at Bound For Glory.
We head backstage, where Jeremy Borash is standing by ready for an interview. He is stood next to the KWF Women’s Champion, Queen Kaitlyn. JB: “Kaitlyn, this Sunday you are defending that Championship once more against Madison Rayne, however not only is your Title on the line, but your Queen-ship as well, what is your head telling you going into this match?” Kaitlyn looks serious. “JB, I won this Championship thanks to two people, Angelina Love and Velvet Sky. Ever since they joined Dolph’s Kingdom, they have made my life hell, but always seem to be on my side whenever this Belt is up for grabs. I know it’s just so they can take it off me and carry it around like a big piece of jewelry, but to me it’s more than that. Don’t get me wrong, I couldn’t care less about my Queen-ship being on the line, but growing up watching wrestling, I saw my heroes like Trish Stratus, Sunny, Lita, Molly Holly, Victoria, all winning Championships, and I dreamed of doing the same. So far I haven’t earned this Belt one-on-one, but at Bound For Glory, with no Angelina or Velvet at ringside, I have an opportunity to show the world that I belong at the top, and that I can be a worthy Champion. I have had to overcome so much with everything that’s happened since I became Dolph’s Queen, but on Sunday I get vindication, and I will leave Bound For Glory with my head, and my arm, held high.” Kaitlyn goes on to talk about her match tonight against Eve, saying that Edge has granted her this match to prove ahead of the pay-per-view that she can handle herself without The Beautiful People around. But before she can finish her thought, King Dolph and The Beautiful People come on the scene and interrupt. Dolph stares down JB until he leaves, before yelling at Kaitlyn for putting her Queen-ship on the line. “I am the King, and I make the calls around here.” Kaitlyn: “Too late, the contract has been signed. But the Queen-ship shouldn’t be any of your concern. I’m going to successfully defend this Title on Sunday, so there’s no need to worry.” She goes to exit, but The BP stand in her way. Angelina: “You better not lose on Sunday.” Kaitlyn shakes her head and tries to get past again, but again she is blocked. Velvet: “That goes for tonight as well. We don’t want you embarrassing us, or the King.” Finally they let her through, as the three of them look on with some apprehension.
Back Live in the main arena, R-Truth makes his entrance ahead of his match with Alberto Del Rio. He plays up to the crowd as JR says that we haven’t seen much of Truth recently, but that his antics are always welcome, and he’s not a bad wrestler either. Regal: “I see he still talks to imaginary children. Still, it must be better than having to sit here and talk to you Jim.” JR doesn’t respond, as Truth waits in the ring. ♫Del Rio’s music♫ «< click to play) hits for the second time of the evening, but there is no Ricardo Rodriguez to announce him this time. The music goes on, and there is no sign of Del Rio either. Truth looks confused, and looks down to Little Jimmy, who is apparently also confused. JR: “Where’s Del Rio? He’s supposed to be here to show Edge what he’s made of.” The music stops, and Del Rio hasn’t emerged. Truth grabs a mic. “Well, well, well. Looks like we got a no-show. Alberto Del Rio realized he had to face the Truth, and he chickened out.” Truth makes chicken noises, and suggests that Little Jimmy is doing a hilarious chicken impression. “In fact, Little Jimmy just gave me an idea. Seeing as I ain’t competin’ tonight, what if Little Jimmy has a match instead?” The crowd cheer, but Regal shouts “What?! How is that even…? Why would you even…?” Truth nods as the fans cheer louder, before challenging anyone in the back who wants to face Little Jimmy, to head out to the ring right now. There is a pause, as Regal says “God, I hope it’s not another imaginary wrestler, like The Ultimate Warrior, remember that storyline Jim? Good Lord.” Eventually, there is another big cheer, as ♫the music of Hornswoggle♫ «< click to play) hits! The little Leprechaun heads to the ring with his game face on, ready to take on the might of Little Jimmy. Truth explains to him as he gets in the ring that Jimmy is carrying an ankle injury, but that he’s been passed fit by medics “by which I mean that stoned dude at Burger King, and he wants this match. Are you ready? Let’s get it on!”
Little Jimmy vs. Hornswoggle
Regal: “Whatever dignity this industry had is being whittled away in front of our very eyes Jim.” JR: “Lighten up would ya? Who knows? The winner of this could get a Title shot if they impress Edge.” Regal: “You’re enjoying this aren’t you?” Hornswoggle is circling the ring, before pouncing into a collar and elbow tie up. JR actually starts to legitimately call the match, much to Regal’s annoyance. “Oh and Little Jimmy is down!” Regal: “No he isn’t! He doesn’t exist! Stop the madness!” Hornswoggle is well on top, as Truth tries to encourage Jimmy from ringside. Hornswoggle appears to be hitting elbows, before a leg drop and a cover, but apparently Jimmy kicks out. Hornswoggle can’t believe it. He hits a piledriver, before heading to the top rope. JR: “It’s time for the Tadpole Splash!” Regal: “No, this is just going to be a tiny man leaping off a rope and crashing onto a mat!” Hornswoggle goes for the Splash, but Truth reaches in and pulls Jimmy out of harm’s way. Hornswoggle crashes and burns, and rolls around the canvas in pain. Truth tells the ref that Jimmy is pinning him, so a bemused official counts, but Hornswoggle kicks out at Two. Bizarrely, Hornswoggle is on the back foot now, seemingly getting hit with shots as he repeatedly crashes to the mat. He eventually shakes off the punishment, and charges at Jimmy, and goes behind. He performs a German suplex and arches into a pin. The referee counts the Three and this one’s over!
Winner: Little Jimmy!
The crowd are confused as are the fans and the ref tells R-Truth that he didn’t see Little Jimmy’s shoulders down, but he did see Hornswoggle’s shoulders down! Truth’s ecstatic as he celebrates Little Jimmy’s win. JR: “Little Jimmy! Little Jimmy! Little Jimmy!” Regal: “Right, just to get this into perspective, we just spent the best part of five minutes watching a leprechaun roll around the ring on his own, before losing a match by pinning himself to the canvas?” JR: “Not no-one William, Little Jimmy, and whatever you might think, fact is that Little Jimmy is now closer to an Intercontinental Title shot than Alberto Del Rio is!” We head to commercial as Truth carries a triumphant Jimmy up the ramp.
When we return from commercials, JB is in the parking lot, saying that Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez have just left the building. We see footage of Del Rio and Rodriguez exiting in his Aston Martin, with Del Rio appearing to be outraged. JB says “Before he left, Mister Del Rio told me that he would not be facing R-Truth tonight because he felt disrespected by Edge, and that he will not compete in a KWF ring until he is given the opportunities he says he deserves.” JB quickly moves on as he is set to interview the number one contender for CM Punk’s KWF World Title, Samoa Joe. The Samoan Submission Machine comes into view, and JB asks him how he feels after his loss to Randy Orton last week. Joe: “I feel fine JB. As a matter of fact I feel pretty damn good. Look, I’m not stupid and I’ve been around long enough to know exactly who’s playing what game and why they’re doing it. I know Punk was doing last week and so does Punk. Everyone is well aware of my famous temper, and Punk was trying to get to me, to get into my head before our match at Bound For Glory, but it didn’t work. Okay, he cost me the match and I got hit by an RKO, but I am still the number one contender, and I saw the worry in Punk’s eyes when I had Randy in that Kokina Clutch.” JB goes on to ask Joe if he thinks he and Punk can co-exist as a tag team tonight. Joe: “Of course. Look, Punk is the KWF Champion, and after Sunday, I will be, so you’ve got the two best wrestlers in this industry teaming up against the greatest tag team in the business. All Punk has to do is bring his A game, and not get in my way.” Joe exits as JB hands it back to ringside. JR: “Well William, what do you make of this calm and collected Samoa Joe?” Regal: “He’s calm on the surface, but I’m sure he’ll be raging inside. The key is to channel that anger and use it against CM Punk in the most effective way possible, in the Title match on at Bound For Glory.” JR also asks Regal about Del Rio, and unsurprisingly, the Brit agrees with the Mexican aristocrat’s stance. JR responds: “Personally I think he’s acting like a spoilt brat, but on a more positive note, I can’t wait for our main event tonight!”
In the halls backstage, we see Wade Barrett on his cell-phone. “It’s a battle and it’s been tougher than I’d thought it was going to be. Getting the British Invasion to winning form has to be my first port of call, I know that, but my patience is being tested.” Onto the scene comes a bouncing little figure; it’s Harley Quinn! Wade looks at her as if to have seen a short hot girl with a painted white face and a big red grin to match. Harley takes the phone off Wade and talks: “Oh yeah, I know! For sure the Brits are a bunch of losers… I didn’t say that, you said that… Wade said what? There’s trouble in the Balkans?” Wade becomes angry and snatches his phone back: “Give me that! (Down the phone) Listen I’ll call you back. Yeah, ignore what you just heard. It’s just part of a plague that Edge is letting loose around here… alright, bye.” Wade hangs up and he yells at Harley: “What on earth do you think you’re doing?!” Harley stands there innocently moving her right leg left to right. She looks around Wade’s body and then stops at his chest where there’s the British Invasion logo. She laughs out loud and says: “The funniest thing is, Layla’s still out from being put through a table! Ha haha ha ha ha ha ha hoo hooo ho.” Wade looks confused, but then Edge comes onto the scene and grabs Harley by the wrist. He pulls her away from Barrett who turns to walks off the other way down the hall. Edge has Harley one-on-one and he asks: “Okay, Christy.” Quinn: “Call me Harley, everyone does.” “Shut up for a second! Look, what’s going on? You’re here tonight, you were under the ring last week and you freaked out Hulk Hogan two weeks ago. What is the point?! Hardy’s coming to Bound For Glory right? That’s still on right?” Harley yanks her wrist from Edge’s grasp. “Ohhhh, you shouldn’t have touched me. That could put everything you ever wanted in jeopardy. He and I are quite close don’t you know?” Edge: “What? What are you talking about now? Look, just be straight with me.” Quinn: “Can’t be straight on KWF Blogs, nope nope nope. I’m bi on this here format. Wait a minute, you’re looking at me kinda weirrrrd. Do you wear bi-focals?” Edge becomes angry and raises his voice, trying to get an answer as to why Harley’s been on Turmoil and whether or not The Joker will show on the Cutting Edge at Bound For Glory. “Tell me what the hell is going on!” Quinn’s facial expression changes and she then very seriously says: “Listen, Adam. You’ve been warned by folks from cute Little Jimmy’s all the ways up to the rafters where Sting lies and each and every single person has put you off from bringing us back. Alls I’m doin’ sugar, is scouting the playground before Mister J makes his appearance. However, you maybe shoulda taken a bitta advice from your friends. See you Sunday, boss! Haha aha ha ha ah ha ha haa.” Harley then laughs her way down the hall. Edge is left standing there shaking his head.
Queen Kaitlyn vs. Eve Torres
The Queen emerges by herself, and she shakes Eve’s hand before the duo lock up. As the match gets going, JR comments on how Kaitlyn stated earlier tonight that she wanted this match to show that she can win on her own. “Her Title win over Madison, and her successful retention in the rematch, owed a lot to The Beautiful People, who interfered against Kaitlyn’s will. They are banned from ringside this Sunday, and people have raised doubts as to whether the Texas girl can do it, but she certainly thinks she can.” Regal: “I doubt it Jim. She’s still a relative rookie, and as you said, she only has that Title because of the actions of two lasses who, in my opinion, are far more deserving of that accolade.” JR and Regal continue to argue about Kaitlyn, Dolph, Angelina and Velvet, as Eve starts to get the better of the Champion. She hits a headscissors, and a front flip leg drop, getting a Two-count. She goes for her booty shake and standing moonsault, but Kaitlyn gets the knees up. The match goes on with both Chicks getting some good shots in. Kaitlyn rallies and hits a cross body, getting Two. JR talks about how much Kaitlyn has been through in recent months. Happily hanging backstage with her close buddy Panther, they indulged in practical jokes and tomfoolery, mostly involving Hornswoggle, but after Panther got into a heated rivalry with King Dolph – who was making moves for Kaitlyn, trying to make her his Queen – the bad blood boiled down to a match at Sovereignty, with Kaitlyn on the line. Ziggler emerged victorious, and Kaitlyn was sentenced to serve beside the 2012 King of the Ring. She was less than receptive to Dolph, and refused to go along with the charade, until Dolph recruited two more Queens in the shape of Love and Sky, whom he used to keep Kaitlyn in line. Back to the action, Kaitlyn is taking some of her anger out on Eve, but gets too enthusiastic, and misses a splash attempt into the corner, smacking her head off the top turnbuckle. Eve climbs the ropes and goes for a moonsault, but Kaitlyn rolls out of the way. Eve lands on her feet, but Kaitlyn has stood up behind her, grabs her around the neck, and nails her with an Inverted DDT. She covers and gets One, Two and Three!
Winner: Queen Kaitlyn.
Kaitlyn has her hand raised and JR says that he’s confident Kaitlyn can retain this Sunday. “She has been through hell, but the one thing that keeps her going is that Title. She will put it on the line at Bound For Glory against Madison Rayne!” Regal: “And don’t forget, her Queen-ship is up for grabs too, just imagine, Madison could be our new Queen.” As Kaitlyn celebrates her win, ♫Madison’s music♫ «< click to play) hits, and she enters to the stage. She stares down Kaitlyn, who wipes her mouth, as she sees Rayne doing the Belt hand gesture around her waist.
We’re with JB once again backstage and this time he is joined by the number one contender to the KWF World Tag Team Titles, The Usos. Jimmy and Jey look in great spirits as they head toward Bound For Glory, but hard-hitting journalist JB asks them outright: “The Dudleys have held Tag Team Gold here in the Keystone Wrestling Federation for over a year. Our General Manager is attempting to bring back The Joker, Gambit and the rest of Why So Serious to be the ones to take the Tag Titles from Bubba and Devon. What can you two do about that? Are you going to be the ones to defeat The Dudley Boyz?” Jimmy: “JB, looking at what’s been going on and seeing how nobody wants Why So Serious here apart from Edge, it’s a lot of pressure on us to defeat The Dudleys. But you see, Joker and Gambit are not our concern. Neither for that matter is the well-being of KWF Blogs. That’s on Edge, he’s the GM, it’s his job. For us, our one and only focus here is to win our first KWF Tag Titles.” Jey: “You see Jeremy, at Bound For Glory we get our first ever straight-up Tag Title shot against The Dudleys. Have they been at the top of their game? Have they defeated everyone in their path? Are they the very best tag team in the business today? Well, it’s a yes to all three. But at Bound For Glory, Jimmy and I have a chance to make history. We are focused, we’re hungry and we know that if we defeat The Dudleys not only will people congratulate us for winning the Gold, but they’ll be saying ‘wow, they defeated The Dudleys, year-long Champs, The Dudleys.’” Jimmy: “It’ll mean we earn respect JB and you know what we’re fine with everyone talking about The Dudleys’ streak and talking about Why So Serious. We’re the underdogs and we’re going under the radar. That’s fine. On Sunday, we rise as the new KWF World Tag Team Champions!” Jimmy and Jey exit the scene and JB finishes: “Wow. That was quite impressive. The Usos are ready folks and all of a sudden, I’ve got an inkling to bet on them. JR, William, back to you.”
At ringside we see a giant disco ball lower and we hear “Ladies and Gentlemen. Please welcome the only living, breathing, rompin’ stompin’ Funkasaurus in captivity. Mr Brodus Clay!” ♫Funk is on a roll, funk is on a roll. Hey hey yo can somebody call my Mama it’s about to get funky up in here!♫ «< click to play). Brodus Clay makes his entrance. He’s with Cameron and Naomi and they’re in great spirits as they dance their way to the ring for competition. Meanwhile the comms reflect on The Usos words and JR says that many KWF fans may have just been made believers by The Usos in their interview. William Regal is a little more skeptical: “This isn’t a fairytale Jim and Lord knows this isn’t ballet as you so often attest to. The Usos may be hungry, heck they might have a game plan, but in case no one realized, The Dudleys are against the World Champion and the number one contender tonight. That’s how good they are, to warm up for a pay-per-view they face the two top notch singles competitors in the business.” JR: “What are you saying, that Punk and Joe won’t put up a challenge?!” Regal: “No Jim, let me finish would you? My point is that normal Tag Team Champions would ‘warm up’ for a pay-per-view with a lesser opponent, a straight shooting victory to make sure they have momentum going into their big Title defense. Edge though, goes and puts The Dudleys against World Champion CM Punk and number one contender Samoa Joe. That’s huge! It’s not a guaranteed victory and it may throw them off their game for Sunday. They’re supposed to be focused on Bound For Glory, but now they have to deal with Punk and Joe.” JR: “So is it a good thing or a bad thing?” Regal: “Well, both, but it depends on the result. If The Dudleys win then great, they’ll be full of confidence going into their Title defense. However if they lose, even though it’s to Punk and Joe, they’ll be rocked and they’ll be going into Bound For Glory on the back of a loss. No one likes losing Jim, especially not The Dudleys, they’re not used to it. If they do lose tonight then they may be so rocked that it could lead to The Usos winning on Sunday. My my, Edge is a smarter man than I give him credit for.” JR: “Again though folks, let us remind you that it’s a toss up as to who wins tonight because quite evidently, CM Punk and Samoa Joe will not get along when they tag. But we’ll get to that later. Here comes Christian Cage!” ♫Christian Cage’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and the number one contender to the Intercontinental Title makes his way to the ring as he gets set to face Brodus Clay. Cage is not alone though, coming to the ring with a random mystery man wearing jeans, a leather jacket and a balaclava. Regal explains that he saw Christian with this man backstage before the show: “He’s hired muscle Jim. Cage knows that Anderson is after him and he’s protecting himself. That conniving Ken Anderson has been hunting poor Cage and he’s trying to weaken him before Bound For Glory.” JR: “What are you talking about? Christian cost Anderson a match against Alberto Del Rio two weeks ago and all Anderson’s trying to do is get even. Cage has this bodyguard now, some piece of mind to watch his back? That’s fine, it’s only a few days till Bound For Glory, Cage’ll get his comeuppance there, that’s for sure.”
Brodus Clay vs. Christian Cage w/ Bodyguard
The bell rings and Christian tells his bodyguard to be “on guard” and be vigilant whilst Cage has his match. The comms tell that Cage hasn’t wrestled since Casino Warfare, having received a number of bumps and bruises in the Steel Cage match he had with Mr. Anderson. JR: “That’s where Cage lost the Intercontinental Title. He was trying to play Anderson at his own game, being an A-hole going into Casino Warfare, but his antics made Anderson angry and pissing off a man such as Ken Anderson is a bad mistake. He’s callous is Anderson and he channeled his resentment toward Cage in winning that Steel Cage match. Now, in my view, Cage has made the same mistake, pissing Anderson off before a pay-per-view yet again.” We watch as Cage and Clay go back and forth early and Christian finds it tough to build any momentum because of the size of Brodus Clay. Regal: “Edge is such a manipulative General Manager Jim. He puts The Dudleys against Punk and Joe, Christian against Brodus. How is this fair? He’s supposed to be an impartial component that makes this show work. He’s not supposed to ruin it.” JR: “Mister Regal, first of all it wasn’t long ago that you were praising Edge for putting on such a main event later tonight. It seems like you and hypocrisy go hand in hand, but once again we differ entirely from what we see from Edge. He’s not playing favorites or trying to weaken certain superstars before Bound For Glory, he’s giving the fans the best matches possible. Last week we saw Cody Rhodes in his first Hardcore match. It was against another man in his first Hardcore match, Zack Ryder. Rhodes is going to face Sheamus for the Hardcore Gold at Bound For Glory, but Edge gave Zack Ryder the opportunity to show what he can do, show what he can give and test if he’s any good as a Hardcore superstar. In recent weeks The Dudleys have been complaining that they don’t get enough matches and they don’t get enough spotlight as the KWF Tag Champions. So Edge shoots two-in-one, putting The Dudleys against Punk and Joe – a main event on any show, any brand, any country, state or village around the world. This main event sells and it’s perfect build-up for Bound For Glory. And this match right here is a tough contest for Cage, sure it is, but what an opportunity it is for Brodus Clay. Clay’s an entertainer and he puts everybody in a good mood. But wrestling’s what this industry is all about and a victory against Christian Cage would open so many doors for Brodus in my view.”
We’re well into the contest and indeed Brodus Clay is taking this match a little more seriously than perhaps he would if he were facing someone who isn’t a number one contender. Cameron and Naomi cheer Clay on and this gets the fans going so much that the volume annoys Christian. Another annoying aspect toward Cage though is the sound of ♫Mr. Anderson’s music♫ «< click to play). Cage releases Clay from a leg-lock on the canvas and he barks orders at his bodyguard. The bodyguard goes up the ramp to counter Anderson’s appearance, but there’s no one stepping out from under the rising tron. Cage looks around ringside and toward the audience. He barks orders again and his bodyguard then goes to the stage and seeks under the tron and toward the back. Brodus Clay is back on his feet now and the crowd cheer. This leads Cage to taking a clothesline from Clay, a back elbow and now Christian’s in trouble. Clay has him down, but Christian rolls out of the ring to the foot of the ramp. Just then, we see the bodyguard emerge back on stage and he’s shaking his head and shrugging his shoulders. He goes to Cage to help him up to his feet. Cage: “Where is he? Wasn’t he there? He’s not here?!” The bodyguard shakes his head and shrugs his shoulders again. Christian: “He’s just trying to distract me, well that won’t work.” The referee’s count is on “Seven!” and so Christian refocuses and gets back in the ring. The bodyguard stays at the foot of the ramp to watch out for any appearance from Mr. Anderson. Brodus Clay puts on an even greater battle against Cage, but Christian is smart to concentrate on Clay’s legs, chopping the tree-trunks down and soon administering an Edgecator! Clay scraps and struggles, but he can’t make it to the rope and he has no choice but to tap out.
Winner: Christian Cage.
♫Cage’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and the crowd boo as Christian immediately looks up toward the General Manager’s Skybox. JR: “That creepy little bastard, look at him, so smug, using Edge’s own submission move to get the victory. Why does he have to be such a jackass, he and Edge used to be so close.” Regal: “Oh be quiet Jim. Edge’s career came to a screeching halt and Christian is prospering in an Intercontinental Title run. The Edgecator’s not Edge’s move anymore haha, I wonder what Christian’s going to call it?” JR is unimpressed with Cage’s cheap shot at Edge, but states that this is a solid victory against such a beast like Brodus Clay. Cage’s bodyguard gets in the ring and raises his hand and just as Cage is smirking and smiling toward Edge, we see the GM point to the titantron. We see that a person has been beaten down backstage. His clothing’s been torn and Cage looks on in shock. He turns around and *BAM* Mic-Check! JR: “Awww my God! Good Lord what impact!” The bodyguard stands up and removes the balaclava to reveal that he’s Mr. Anderson! The crowd go nuts and the comms declare that Anderson must’ve made the switch when the bodyguard initially went backstage when Anderson’s music hit. Regal: “Damn it Jim, poor Christian. He’s tired, he’s hurt, he didn’t deserve that after this hard-fought victory. Another show of our General Manager Edge showing favoritism. How’s Christian going to be at a hundred percent for Sunday?” JR: “Well, he’s already moaned about his bruises from Casino Warfare so a Mic-Check tonight is just another one to add to his collection haha. And don’t you tell me that Edge is playing favorites. He didn’t exactly arrange the attack. Besides, Christian just stole Edge’s submission move and then gloated about it. The least he deserved was a Mic-Check, haha!” ♫Anderson’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and he celebrates toward the crowd with the comms wrapping up that Cage and Anderson will face off for the Intercontinental Championship this Sunday at KWF Bound For Glory.
We see a scenic view of the Arizona desert. Out of the sand there’s a rumble and up rises a wrestling ring. We then fade into a darkness that shows us all the KWF Championship Belts. A voiceover from KWF General Manager Edge tells us: “If you’re a professional wrestler you have the aspirations to succeed and attain the most that you can out of the business. Many superstars and Chicks have different paths, and not all of them will achieve everything they want to. The Keystone Wrestling Federation has the very best wrestler’s from all over the world. They are entwined in stories, they battle on a weekly basis and they do so not only within KWF Blogs, but also other wrestling organizations. Only the top competitors, only a select few will be BOUND FOR GLORY!” Edge’s final words come right as the camera zooms on the KWF World Heavyweight Championship. We see the Bound For Glory logo and Edge finishes: “Read KWF Bound For Glory, Live this Sunday, October 21st only at KWF Blogs.” – listen to KWF’s Bound For Glory theme song HERE!
Backstage we join Jeremy Borash once more and he’s with KWF Hardcore Champion, Sheamus. JB: “Sheamus I spoke with KWF’s Hardcore Ambassador Mick Foley this past week and he’s been telling me that he’s so proud to have you as KWF’s Hardcore Champion. He’s also told me that you’ve even helped him mould some jokes for his stand-up comedy gigs.” Sheamus: “That’s true JB. Mick, he’s an inspiration to me. You know, back when I was the size of Hornswoggle, I always wondered what I was going to be when I grew up. I knew it was going to be something to do with fighting, but I never woulda thought that I’d find my niece in Hardcore wrestling.” JB: “You mean your niche.” Sheamus: “I don’t have an itch JB, but if I do I can reach it myself, thank you. Anyway, as I was sayin’, I love this Hardcore gig that I got going on and I’m guessing that you’re going to ask me about a challenge coming toward me from Cody Rhodes. Haha, Cody Rhodes. Now that boy thinks he’s smart, but I’ll tell you this for free, Edge didn’t give him this Hardcore Title shot to reward him for anything. Rhodes wanted to be in Title contention and so Edge puts him against me? Haha, Rhodes, you little moron, you think swinging a chair at Zack Ryder is the same as swinging a chair against me? I’ll crush you fella, there’s no way you’ll ever take me down! Let me tell ya,” Sheamus tries to continue, but then from behind comes an attack from Cody Rhodes and indeed, Rhodes is swinging a steel chair! He takes Sheamus down and the crowd boo heavily. Rhodes boots Sheamus in the gut whilst he’s down and he slams the chair over his back again. Rhodes then exits the scene and while Sheamus is hurt on the floor, his eyes and face are almost as red as his hair and JR finishes: “Cody Rhodes may have just made the biggest mistake of his life.”
We’re back Live in the main arena and we’re about set for our main event of the evening. ♫The Dudleys music♫ «< click to play) hits and the year-long KWF Tag Team Champions make their entrance. William Regal again talks up how much this will do for The Dudleys’ egos going into Bound For Glory, if they get the victory here tonight. JR says that he’ll never doubt The Dudleys’ pedigree, but if, and he stresses if Punk and Joe can get on the same page at all tonight then The Dudleys may be in for one heck of a test and this could turn out to be one of the greatest Turmoil main events of all time. Samoa Joe and CM Punk individually make their entrances and are both equally cheered. The Dudleys are ready in their corner and Punk tells Joe, “I’m the Champion, I’m the first in, I’m the Best in the World!” Joe shrugs and steps out to the ring apron and goes to his corner. JR: “The atmosphere is electric and there’s a big fight feel here in Reading. We thank you for joining us ladies and gentlemen, this is Wednesday Night Turmoil’s main event!”
The Dudleys vs. Samoa Joe and CM Punk
The bell rings and here we go. Bubba-Ray Dudley starts off against KWF World Champion CM Punk and he quickly gets Punk into a headlock out of a collar-elbow tie-up. Punk ducks under to go behind Bubba and he goes low to trip him so that Bubba lands right on his face and bounces off the canvas. Punk instantly dives on top of Ray, turns him over for a cover, gets One, but it’s only One as Ray kicks out right away. Punk stands up and looks toward Joe, smiling at him as if he alone has the Tag Champs under control. Punk turns around and without him knowing, Devon’s the legal man and he rocks Punk with heavy right hands before throwing him against the ropes and as Punk comes back Devon takes him up and over for a sky-high back body drop. Punk’s back slams hard onto the canvas and Devon tags Bubba back in. Joe stands in his corner, almost cracking a smile at how Punk’s being shown up here. Bubba and Devon maintain control, but as Devon becomes legal again, Punk manages to mount a comeback and he goes out to the apron right by Joe to perform his springboard top rope flying clothesline. He takes Devon down, and makes the cover, but the referee doesn’t count because Joe tagged Punk as he went for that springboard. Punk’s no longer the legal man.
Samoa Joe goes into the ring and he waves Punk away before dumping Devon out to ringside. Bubba-Ray comes storming at Joe, but Joe counters his attack with an STO. He then goes against the ropes to come back with a backsplash and the crowd cheer at the top of their lungs. ‘Joe!’ ‘Joe!’ ‘Joe!’ ‘Joe!’ they chant as the legal Devon comes back in the ring and Joe tags Punk. JR: “Punk’s not happy because he didn’t want to be tagged out in the first place, but seeing that he was having some rest, he appreciated the break. But Joe’s tagged him back in of course and now Punk’s in action again.” Regal: “The match didn’t start out perhaps the way Joe had anticipated Jim, but after Punk cost Joe the match against Orton last week, I think Joe’s doing the best he can to make sure Punk’s the one who’s worse for wear going into Bound For Glory.” Punk’s back in action against Devon and that battle goes back and forth with Punk getting some near falls in and now the fans cheer his name. JR: “He’s proved that he’s the Best in the World, the very best this industry has to offer. Hell, he ran Chris Jericho away from the KWF because Jericho was too much of a coward to have his rematch. The crowd love him and the more I witness the divide in the audience of Punk fans and Joe fans, the more I look forward to Bound For Glory.” Regal: “Yes yes Jim, we’re all looking forward to the pay-per-view for a number of reasons. But don’t you go telling people that Chris Jericho’s a coward. He’s taken leave on his own terms and for his own reasons. Whenever he returns he’ll still have a rematch clause in his flashy jacket pocket. He’s a smart man, he’ll be back when it’s most profitable to him and when he bloody well feels like it!” The Dudleys begin tagging more often and their freshness wears Punk down over some time. Punk has the heart of a Champion though and he battles back. Samoa Joe reaches out for a tag, but Punk tells him, in quite blunt fashion; “No! I’m the Best in the World!” Then as Punk turns around he’s lifted by Devon and cut by a legal Bubba for a 3D! Punk’s down! Punk’s down and out! Bubba covers and Joe notably does nothing but watch as The Dudleys pick up the One! Two! And Three!
Winners: Bubba-Ray and Devon Dudley, The Dudleys.
♫The Dudleys’ music♫ «< click to play) hits and the crowd boo their victory. We watch as Joe drops off the ring apron and he storms around toward the timekeeper’s corner to grab the KWF Championship Belt. He goes to the announcers table to put on a headset, just like Punk did after costing Joe last week. Joe: “You see that? CM Punk, a man who claims he’s the best in the world, claims it because of who he’s defeated and how he’s done it. What Punk didn’t understand was that I knew you had to tag fast and tag often against The Dudleys. I’ve been against them before and lost. Now I’ve been against them with the KWF Champ and I’ve lost – because they’re the best Tag Team in the world, but CM Punk was too arrogant and stupid to realize that. Punk just got his ass 3D’d and he deserved it. To the folks at home I want you to know, I’ve known Punk a long time, but it wasn’t until tonight that I truly learnt about the man’s character. He can talk, he can mouth-off all he wants but come Sunday he’s going to be in for the beat-down of his life! And to rub it in, after I alter his jaw-line and after I choke him out, I’m going to raise this Belt as the new KWF World Heavyweight Champion!” Joe slams the headset on the announcer’s desk and then lobs the Belt in the ring where Punk’s only just coming to. Wednesday Night Turmoil fades out with a reminder to read KWF Bound For Glory this Sunday.
