In 1987, Survivor Series was born. Richfield Coliseum saw Andre the Giant, One Man Gang, King Kong Bundy, Butch Reed and Rick Rude take on Hulk Hogan, Paul Orndorff, Don Muraco, Ken Patera and Bam Bam Bigelow in a 5-on-5 elimination match. Andre was the sole Survivor, and thus a staple pay-per-view of the wrestling industry was established. Great Survivor Series’ since have included The UnderTaker defeating Hulk Hogan for the WWF Title in 1991, the Montreal Bret Hart Screw Job of 1997, Triple H, Stone Cold and The Rock for the WWE Title in a Triple Threat in 1999, Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown in 2005, right up to last year at KWF’s Survivor Series where the world was shocked as Christian Cage cashed in Money In The Bank to become WWE Champion just seconds after Brock Lesnar had defeated Triple H in a hellacious No Holds Barred match. Now, from Madison Square Garden, the 25th annual Survivor Series is on the horizon, and it promises to be the biggest ever! Divas and Knockouts from both TNA RAW and Impact SmackDown will align and fight to determine the top duo in the Women’s locker room. Fourteen X-Division superstars will fight out for Evan Bourne’s Title. AJ Styles will get his hands on John Cena after the two recent WWE Title Screw Jobs. Triple H will take on his hardest task to date as he faces both members of The Dark Side in a handicap match. Mr. Anderson will face off against Wade Barrett for the WWE Title. There’ll be a Joker’s Playground match for the TNA World Heavyweight Title, and Hogan versus Flair will commence as Team TNA RAW, Captained by Stone Cold Steve Austin, will take on Team Impact SmackDown, Captained by the man they call Sting!… This has been a video package that we have seen week after building week leading up to tonight and we fade into an opening video that introduces us to tonight. The first few scenes are clips reminding us of the various events that have lead us to this evenings matches. We see how John Cena started the war between the two brands and we’re shown how Interim TNA RAW General Manager Hulk Hogan and Impact SmackDown General Manager Ric Flair came to an arrangement that would go on to change the Keystone Wrestling Federation forever. After tonight, the one thing we’re guaranteed is that the rosters of both respective shows become one. However, will it be Team TNA RAW that win and thus the Hulkster runs both TNA RAW and Impact SmackDown with Flair leaving the KWF? Or will Team Blue win and then Impact SmackDown becomes the one and only weekly program produced by KWF Blogs? Tonight, at the world famous Madison Square Garden not only do we bring you this monumental high stakes traditional Survivor Series match, but on the 25th birthday of this pay-per-view we also have a rundown of eight matches that will each test exactly who the most durable, vibrant and strongest Survivor is. Ladies and gentlemen, the stakes could not be any higher, change is coming to the KWF, but in what manner and how will the best in literary sports entertainment go forward after tonight? It all comes down to the Garden, it all comes down to the 25th ever Survivor Series!
The pyro’s explode and as we can expect, Madison Square Garden is rocking! The TNA RAW commentators Michael Cole and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler are sat at a Red announcers table right by a Blue one that is a work desk for Impact SmackDown’s Mike Tenay and Tazz. They’re all excited and nervous at the same time. Tenay: “Ladies and gentlemen we have no clue as to how this night is going to pan out, but we are set for a rollercoaster of a ride and we promise that KWF Blogs will bring you some of the very best in Pro Wrestling entertainment here from the Garden this evening.” King: “Ha, Tenay, your introductions are so scattered, what’s the matter with you?!” Tazz: “Yeah Mike, err Impact SmackDown only really stand to lose Ric Flair tonight, I thought you woulda been happy about that?” Cole: “Guys I think Tenay’s just anxious to see what happens. The Keystone Wrestling Federation has been running for over two years. We have put forth some of the greatest dream matches of an era. We’ve got all the best wrestler’s in the world fighting under our banner and Mike, if I may assume, you’re not one for Team Blue winning and Flair making this a one show a week Blog are ya?” Tenay: “I must admit, I’m not the greatest fan of the idea. I believe that we may lose too much by becoming one show and although our Captain Sting believes that Ric Flair’s intentions are honorable, I just wonder, that if Team Blue win, then what becomes of all the talent and all the Championships of TNA RAW?” Tazz: “Ahh Mike, you gotta be kiddin’ me man. Get behind our brand would ya? I mean come on, sure, thing’s are gonna change, the roster spills over no matter what happens here tonight, but I’m all for Team Blue baby. TNA RAW can kiss my ass haha.” King: “Hey you watch your mouth FTW!” Tazz: “What, you want me knock that crown off your head? Haha, sit down and shut it King, Impact SmackDown’s opening the show.” ♫Pope is Pimpin! Aaaaaghhh!♫ «< click to play)
‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero vs. R-Truth – Intercontinental Title
Pope dollars rain down all over the Garden and the crowd cheer Pope’s entrance, but boo as we’re shown footage of how R-Truth got a sneak calf kick in on The Pope this past Friday night. Truth is booed heavily upon his entrance and we can see that he’s talking to his imaginary, erm, whoever they may be. The match begins with the Garden collectively chanting ‘Pope is Pimpin’ *clap* *clap* *clap-clap-clap* ‘Pope is Pimpin’ *clap* *clap* *clap-clap-clap* and here we go, collar and elbow tie up. Truth goes for a wrist lock, but Dinero counters with an arm drag. Truth attacks with a clothesline, amping the intensity early, but Dinero ducks under and then forces Truth against the ropes. He smacks him with front punches and back hand chops before running a clothesline himself and sending Truth to ringside. The audience cheer as Pope taunts for them in the ring, but Truth is less than impressed. The crowd keep chanting for The Pope and this frustrates Truth. He shouts at some children and yells “Be quiet lil’ Jimmy’s!” They keep chanting though and Truth holds his ears before going to kick the steel stairs and yell “Shut up Little Jimmy’s, shhuuut uuuup!” We watch as Pope then runs along the apron for a boot, but Truth evades and trips Pope up so that he lands hard on the apron. “That’s the hardest part of the ring Tazz.” “Oh no doubt Mike. The way Truth tripped Pope there had a huge impact on the back of his head and Pope’s rocked here Mike, he could be in trouble.” As Truth dominates Pope around ringside the comms again reflect on the sucker-kick that Truth got Pope with this past Friday night in Boston. “It was an unprovoked attack Tazz and Dinero damn near had a concussion.” “Unprovoked? Are you kiddin’ me Mike? I mean come on, a few seconds before that kick, The Pope was daring Truth to hit him.” “And Truth didn’t do it, he waited until Pope was unawares and then he took advantage, how can you condone that?” “Man, that’s Pope’s fault. The freakin’ mind-set of R-Truth is enough to know not to trust him Mike. And I’m not sayin’ I condone anything, I’m just sayin’ that if you’re a Champion you always gotta watch your back, especially here on KWF Blogs.” Truth gets Pope back into the ring and continues working him down. He gets a few Two-count falls and the fans are much quieter now. Truth picks Pope up and throws him against the ropes to smash him with an identical calf kick to Friday night. The audience gasp at the impact and Truth covers, gets One, Two – close, Pope kicks out.
The comms tell that the apron trip earlier as well as this calf kick and Friday’s have all left The Pope rocking and Pope’s reign as Intercontinental Champion is in real jeopardy here. Tazz says that Pope hasn’t faced a challenge like R-Truth before. “With Morrison he always knew what he was going to get and his battles with Dolph Ziggler were much the same.” “But Tazz at least Ziggler wrestled his style to try and win the Belt. What Truth’s done is target a spot on Dinero, the head, where the brain is. You shut that down and your opponent is out.” “Ha, you’re tellin’ me like I don’t know Mike. I slapped on the Tazz-mission and made people’s lights go out. Truth’s tryin’ to do that with kicks to the head and I applaud him for it. So what if it hurts Dinero and wins Truth the IC Title, isn’t that the whole point after all?” The contest hits its final quarter and R-Truth sets up for a Lie Detector now. He measures Dinero, but as he runs at him, Pope ducks and Truth gets nothing but air. Both men get up and Truth quickly attempts his Scissor Kick, but Pope catches him by the leg and lifts him for a back suplex! The Garden rumbles as they cheer on Pope and the referee administers a Ten-count. He gets to Six as both men get up to exchange right hands, but it’s Pope who wins this round, Four-Upping R-Truth right upside his brain box. Truth gets up and runs at Pope, but Dinero switches behind him and lands an impressive German suplex pin with a bridge – One! Two! – wow, and Truth kicks out. Both superstars show their resilience, they both show what they’re made of as they know the rosters are mixed after tonight. The Intercontinental Championship is a landmark Title and any challenger would find it a mountain to climb in attempts to defeat either of these men. Truth does all he can to get back in the match and he almost one-ups The Pope with a roll-up that has a handful of Pope’s tights, but no dice. The fans keep Dinero going and he builds full momentum to corner R-Truth and finish him off with the D’Angelo Dinero Express! ‘One!’ yell the crowd, ‘Two!’ ‘Three!’
Winner and Still Intercontinental Champion: ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero.
The Pope’s music hits and the audience are excited to see that their favorite has retained. The comms review replays and tell that Truth looked to have control through the majority of the match, constantly targeting Pope’s skull and many times it looked as if Pope was on dream street. However, the KWF fans played their part, voicing their approval of Dinero and chanting him on to get to his feet and retain his Title. “What a match Tazz!” “Aaah Mike, I gotta say that was an intense expression of intestinal fortitude from Dinero man. I thought Truth had this one, but The Pope is certainly Pimpin’ and New York City is buzzin’ Mike, what a way to start Survivor Series.”
Backstage we see Impact SmackDown interviewer ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund along with TNA RAW correspondent Jeremy Borash. They’re smartly dressed, Gene wearing a Blue tie and JB wearing a Red one. They tell us of how excited they are to be in the city that never sleeps and at this time they welcome KWF’s Hardcore Ambassador Mick Foley to talk about the massive night we have ahead at Survivor Series. Foley says that he’s ecstatic to know that the roster becomes one after tonight. “The competition will just grow and I know for a fact that there are plenty of superstars on the TNA RAW side of the KWF that would love an opportunity at Samoa Joe and the Hardcore Title.” Gene and Borash discuss with Mick how much the Hardcore style of wrestling has progressed here in the KWF and Foley talks about how it’s not just about who’s prone to taking steel chair shots any more. “When I fought Edge in a Hardcore match at WrestleMania 22, I think that’s where the WWE really understood Hardcore and that’s where the KWF today takes this blog to the next level. Back in the old days in Philly and even during the early Hardcore Title days of the WWE, the extreme sense of the fight was about crazy guys like The Sandman, Sabu and it went on to karate choppers like Steve Blackman and the odd cartoon character that was Crash Holly, God rest his soul. Now don’t get me wrong, Rob Van Dam was around back then. He rode with WWE and he’s still after the Hardcore Gold today. But what I’m trying to say is that this is what we want for the fans. Samoa Joe, the Samoan Submission Machine, one of the best mat/technical wrestler’s today. He went on a losing streak and then found himself in the Hardcore Division. It takes a hell of a lot of guts to go into the squared circle knowing you’re gonna come out bleeding and knowing that you may have some broken bones by the end of the night. I think the KWF has brought the concept of wrestling and blood driven Madness together, God bless the Macho Man, and tonight, I gotta say a similar notion goes for the X-Division. It’s nice to have a chance to see the KWF’s entire X-Division go head to head because any X-Division guy, as we’ve seen in Low-ki, can go on to be a great Hardcore competitor. The respect for each other the X-Divisioners have is admirable and Hulk Hogan’s pulled off a great test of character for tonight’s match. They will have to turn on each other at some point, but let’s just see how they do so.” Gene and JB suggest some of the X-Division folks going after Hardcore Gold and Mick says that it’s not for everybody, but anybody’s welcome to try. Mick goes on to give his take on the war between the brands and he finishes “No matter what happens, I’m glad to have a birds eye view, enjoying the show with every body right here in New York City!” *Thumbs up and a wink.*
We cut to a video package. The word ‘Gluttony’ fades across the screen, into a picture of ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels hitting the BME on Suicide, before refusing a pin and going for another one, but this time crashing and burning. The word ‘Greed’ then goes across, into a picture of Justin Gabriel cheating his way to the X-Division Title earlier this year against Rey Mysterio. ‘Sloth’ follows, and we see Shannon Moore wasting time during a match against Sin Cara by reading the book of DILLIGAF, before getting rolled up for Three. ‘Wrath’ floats across, and its Daniels again, smashing Rey Mysterio with heavy shots to the extent of getting disqualified. This is followed by ‘Envy’, in which Amazing Red stares angrily at the X-Division Title he lost to Evan Bourne recently. ‘Pride’ sees us recollect Justin Gabriel’s attitude while he was Champ, denying that it was his World Elite teammates who kept him in Gold. Finally we see ‘Lust’. This is simply the camera panning out on X-Division Title Belt. A graphic comes up ‘Would you Sin to Win?’ We come back into the arena where Michael Cole explains that the upcoming 7-on-7 Elimination Tag match for the X-Division Title is being dubbed the ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ match. “This match will truly test the respect of the X-Division, as friends and enemies team up until just one team stands. Then, that team will become enemies as they try to eliminate one another to be crowned X-Division Champion.” “What a bout this promises to be Michael. So many opportunities to screw people over, I can’t wait to see all that respect fly right out the window!” Evan Bourne’s music hits and the X-Division Champion is the first to make his way to the ring.
Evan Bourne, Alex Shelley, Sonjay Dutt, Justin Gabriel, Amazing Red, Low-ki & Kazarian vs. Rey Mysterio, Christopher Daniels, ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal, Daniel Bryan, Shannon Moore, Suicide & Sin Cara – Seven Deadly Sins match for the X-Division Championship (7-on-7 traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag match followed by remaining Survivors facing each other in an Elimination match)
It takes a while, but eventually all fourteen X-Division superstars are in the ring. As the bell rings and the match can finally begin, we start off with Alex Shelley up against Suicide. They begin at a fast pace, with Shelley getting the upper hand. Cole and King discuss how much potential this match has for chaos, with enemies such as Rey Mysterio and Christopher Daniels on the same team, and friends going from being teammates to opponents as soon as all seven men from one team have been eliminated. Shelley has taken control, with a back kick to the gut of Suicide, followed by a falling drop kick to the head. He goes for a cover but Suicide kicks out. Shelley is joined in this match by his Impact SmackDown colleagues Low-ki and Jay Lethal, and the comms point out that after tonight, no matter what the outcome of the main event, those three men will join the X-Division permanently either solely on Impact SmackDown, or across both KWF shows on Monday and Friday nights respectively. Suicide has recovered and nails Shelley with rights after ducking a springboard attempt, then throws him against the corner before pulling him back down to the mat by grabbing the back of his neck. Suicide gets a cheer from the fans, but hold on, Shelley nips back up and floors Suicide with Sliced Bread 2. However, before he can get the pin Sonjay Dutt comes in and out of nowhere hits the Sonjay Cutter on Alex Shelley! “What?! What’s Sonjay doing?!” “Hahaa! This is brilliant Michael, what a cunning move by Sonjay. Don’t you get it? It makes it easier for him later!” Dutt throws Suicide on top of Shelley as his teammates look on in astonishment as we get our first elimination of the evening. Alex Shelley is eliminated. Sonjay poses Guru-like and the crowd boo as he then starts stomping at Suicide. “Well there we have it King. First example of what we said was possible right there. Sonjay wanted to get Shelley out of this match so that he has less competition if his team emerge victorious.” “And did you notice, none of his teammates were exactly quick to stop him? ‘Respect of the X-Division’ my ass.” The match continues as Dutt takes it to Suicide, who is still reeling from that Sliced Bread 2. Dutt sets up for another Cutter, but he gets reversed and *BAM!* Suicide hits the Suicide Solution! 1… 2… 3! Sonjay Dutt is eliminated. “Wow, now its 7-on-5. The Champion Evan Bourne has it all to do if he’s going to retain from here.” “Oh no, Sonjay’s move may have cost his team in the long run. I knew that would happen!” “Err, King, you said… oh never mind.”
The match goes on and indeed it is Bourne who enters next, as Suicide intelligently tags out to Sin Cara. The duo have a great back and forth, with Sin Cara nailing a spin-around bulldog and Bourne a double knee to the face followed by a standing moonsault, both getting near falls. Sin Cara goes against the ropes, and gets blind tagged by Shannon Moore, who comes in and clotheslines Bourne down. The Prince of Punk takes his book of DILLIGAF, and goes to strike Evan with it. The referee stops him, warning that DQ’s still count in this match. Moore complains, until he is rolled up by Bourne and eliminated! Shannon Moore is eliminated. Christopher Daniels is in next and he works away at Bourne. He hits a DDT and gets a near fall, then gets him in numerous submission holds, trying to work him down. He has a single legged Boston Crab on, and Bourne is in pain, reaching out for a tag. He tries to pull the move across to his corner, and by his finger tips, manages to tag in Low-ki, who flies off the top rope and kicks The Fallen Angel in the back of the head. Low-ki works through his arsenal of kicks, and has Daniels in a bad way. He goes for Warriors Way, but misses. Daniels gets to his feet and pokes Low-ki in the eye. He then springs off the middle rope and hits a kick to the chest, sending Low-ki down. A swift BME later and Low-ki is eliminated. To maintain his status in the match, Daniels tags out, and surprisingly, to Mysterio. Rey is dressed all in black here tonight, and he stares down Daniels, before getting in and going up against Kazarian. “We’re in the city that never sleeps King and Rey’s got that theme going with his ring attire!” “Shut up Cole, call the match!” Rey and Kaz slap hands and proceed to go at it. Kaz gets some good moves in, hitting a springboard leg drop and even a Wave of the Future, he covers, but Rey gets his foot on the rope. Mysterio hits a bulldog and a hurracanrana, before tagging out to Suicide. The guy who started to match is refreshed and races in, but doesn’t last long as he springs up to the top turnbuckle, only to be joined by Kaz and felled with the Flux Capacitor. Suicide is eliminated. “Ohh all that early pressure and then Suicide runs in all suicidal, what an idiot, bide your time and play this smart!” “What like Sonjay?” “Shut up Cole, what would you know, you idiot.” Kaz has had it taken out of him, and is blindsided by ‘Black Machismo’ who comes in and hits a suplex. He does his Macho Man taunt as ‘Black Machismo’ points to the heavens and goes to the top rope, before flying off and nailing the Elbow Drop. He hooks the leg and Kazarian is eliminated. We are down to 5-on-3, and Bourne is still in it. Amazing Red comes in and has a great back and forth with Lethal, evading a clothesline and then hitting a spinning kick to the head. Lethal ducks two attempts but Red connects with the third. “I’ve seen Red do that to Lethal before Michael, its awesome, haha!” He goes for the pin but Lethal kicks out and tags Sin Cara back in.
Red tags out to Justin Gabriel and he gets the better of Sin Cara first up. He held the X-Division Title for several months while part of the World Elite, and ironically lost it to Red. He has changed his ways now though and seems determined to get the Belt back, but won’t tonight as he gets leveled from nowhere by La Mistica. Justin Gabriel is eliminated. 5-on-2, and it seems that Sonjay’s tactic earlier has backfired on his team, not that he cares anymore as he was the second guy eliminated. Bourne and Red have it all to do, and Bourne comes back in to try and achieve the impossible. He goes up against Daniel Bryan who has been tagged in. The American Dragon works over Bourne, coming close to getting the LeBell Lock on. Bourne is able to scrape away, and Bryan tags out to Rey. Mysterio comes in, but stops. He looks at Bourne, then back out to his teammates. He decides to tag Sin Cara in. “That was weird, why didn’t Rey want in?” Sin Cara comes back in and has another tussle with Bourne. A dropkick to the back sends Cara onto the middle rope. “Wait, what’s going on!?!” Rey Mysterio runs along the apron and spins around the corner post, hitting the 6-1-9 on his teammate! Bourne, nay, everyone looks shocked. Evan wastes no more time and climbs to hit Air Bourne. Sin Cara is eliminated. The fans, and even the competitors are in shock as Rey Mysterio’s lived up to his black attire and screwed Sin Cara. “That is so unlike Rey, but I guess he’ll do anything to win, hahaa, that was so opportunistic!” “But King, that was such a cheap shot. And like you say, so unlike Rey Mysterio.” The match continues as Jay Lethal and Amazing Red go at it again. Red goes for the Infra-Red, but misses, and gets hit with the Lethal Injection. Amazing Red is eliminated. So it’s just Bourne, on his own now. If he is able to pull this off then there will be no second match as he’s run out of teammates. He is surrounded by his four opponents. He goes straight for Rey, and they brawl. Daniels grabs him and holds his arms, while Mysterio hits cheap shots and kicks to the gut. “Rey and Daniels in cahoots, who’d have thought it?” Cole says. The fans boo and we see shots of kids in the crowd taking off their Mysterio replica masks. The official is trying to get order as Lethal tags in Bryan. Daniels argues with the ref, which allows Rey to kick Bourne in the down below area with a low blow. Bryan wasn’t paying attention as he was looking at Daniels and the ref, but he sees Bourne down and makes the pin. The official turns around and 1… 2… 3!
Rey Mysterio vs. Christopher Daniels vs. ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal vs. Daniel Bryan – Elimination match for the X-Division Title
“So the Tag part of the match is over. Now we come to the elimination match for the X-Division Title. We are guaranteed a new Champion as Daniels, Mysterio, Lethal and Bryan battle it out. Here we go!” Lethal goes right after Mysterio and Bryan after Daniels. It’s carnage as the action spills to the outside. Daniels gets the upper hand and backs Bryan into the apron, while Rey also manages to get on top and throws Lethal into the barrier. Daniels rolls Bryan back into the ring and stomps away. He lifts him up and drives him down with a neckbreaker. He then signals for the BME, before flying off. Bryan rolls out of the way, but Daniels lands on his feet. He goes for a right hook, misses, goes for a left, misses, right again, Bryan grabs the arm and pulls him down into a LeBell Lock! He’s got it on good and tight and Daniels screams out. He reaches for the ropes but can’t make it. Rey and Lethal are trading blows on the outside, but in the ring The Fallen Angel cannot muster an escape and eventually has no choice but to tap out. Christopher Daniels is eliminated. We’re down to three as Bryan wastes no time and suicide dives through the ropes right on top of Mysterio and Lethal. The fans cheer as he rolls Rey into the ring and tries to work him over. He hits him with a series of kicks, before coming off the ropes. However, Mysterio hits a dropkick to the knee, and then a savage boot to the skull. “Oh God, such unrefined aggression from Mysterio. Are you sure that’s him under the mask?” Cole asks. “Get serious Michael, this is the smartest way to wrestle. The X-Division preaches respect, but screw it, Rey wants to be the Champ and I like what he’s doing.” It’s Rey under the mask alright as he soon has Bryan set up for a 6-1-9. He nails it and stands on the apron. Lethal gets in the ring, but realizing it’s in his best interests to let Rey finish, he waits in the corner. Rey hits the splash and gets the 1… 2… 3. Daniel Bryan is eliminated. We come to the final two, Rey Mysterio versus ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal. You would never have predicted it at the start of this match, but nearly all the fans are chanting for Lethal. Rey’s antics appear to have cost him his following, but he seems to only have X-Division Gold in his mind tonight as he and Lethal raise the roof with their back and forth. Mysterio is still pulling off his fast paced moves, but uses dirty tactics like foot stomps and even biting. However, ‘Black Machismo’ gets on top and hits a huge cross body, getting Two. Jay is in charge now and goes to hit his Lethal Combination, but can’t hit the STO part of it. Rey rolls him up, pulling the tights, and gets the Three-count!
Winner and New X-Division Champion: Rey Mysterio.
♫Rey Mysterio’s KWF Theme♫ «< click to play) Fans boo like crazy. Never before could we have expected this, for Rey Mysterio, an upstanding Pro Wrestler, one of our sports all-time fan favorites has just turned his back on everyone, turned his back on the thousands of fans that have cheered for him year after year. For him to be the one who turns his back on all his peers this way is totally unprecedented. King mocks the ‘respect’ of the X-Division and he and Tazz agree that Rey Mysterio did the right thing for himself. Rey’s been around the block and he was a high flyer before the X-Division even came about. He’s been in main event matches at WrestleMania and all the experience he’s gathered over the years has led him to this night in New York City where he stabs every little fan in the back and waves his new X-Division Championship in their faces.
In a locker room backstage we’re with ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund and he’s standing by with Impact SmackDown’s TNA World Tag Team Champions Beer Money, their valet Gail Kim and Rob Van Dam. We see The Icon Sting come into the picture and he looks excited as he “Whhhooooo”’s toward the camera. Instantly after that we see the door open behind them and hear a “Wooo!” from the Nature Boy. Ric Flair comes in and he “Wooo”’s again before Sting smiles and screams out another “Whhhooooo!” Roode, Storm, Gail and Van Dam all look in good spirits, but then the mood changes as we see Alberto Del-Rio and his personal ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez enter the room. Ric Flair’s generous “Wooo”’s turn very serious and the Impact SmackDown GM pep talks his chosen men with ‘Mean’ Gene holding the mic. He talks to them seriously and quietly, asking, almost begging Sting and the rest of the team to make sure they win here tonight. This is a very different Flair to the one we have seen in recent weeks. All the cockiness has gone and he has a deadly serious, and almost worried, expression. Flair reminds RVD that he has a Hardcore Title shot waiting for him if Team Blue win. He says that Beer Money are the World Tag Team Champions and they’ll be the one’s to take KWF to the next level, taking on all comers and being the best damn tag team in the world. Del-Rio, a man who must take this opportunity. “It is your destiny to go on to great things, your destiny to become a Champion… but you already know that.” Flair says that he knows exactly what he’s got with the men he’s picked and although they may not see eye to eye with the addition of Del-Rio to the team, Flair says that this is bigger than all of them and at the end of the night he wants to be proud that he had The Four Horsemen all those years ago, he picked them and they were beyond great. Flair says that he wants his picks here tonight to prove the same and he wants them to work as a team to bring the roster to Friday nights. Beer Money nod as Del-Rio declares that he doesn’t like any of his teammates, but he has the utmost respect for Ric Flair and therefore Team Blue will get the best of him here tonight. Van Dam says “I’m cool with that.” Flair then tells his Captain: “Sting, The Icon, the man who beat the Nature Boy at Sovereignty 3. The same man who single handedly took down the nWo and tonight brother, tonight you Captain these guys to turn the KWF into one show a week. There’ll be the best of the very best right under the Blue roof of Impact SmackDown and Sting, I’m begging you brother. Win tonight, you have to win tonight.” Sting smiles and says that it’s nice to see the humble side of Ric Flair and he then gets his team going by yelling “Whhhooooo! New York City! Beer Money, Del-Rio, Van Dam and the Stinger versus Team Red tonight, – it’s gonna be ShowTime!”
At the announcers tables we’re set for the upcoming Four Corner Women’s Tag Team match. The comms first talk about how much of a great mood Team Impact SmackDown seem to be in and Tenay and Tazz state that they are very confident Team Blue will win after that rally by the Nature Boy and Sting. Michael Cole says that he envies the unity of the group, but King says that it’s all overrated. “By the end of the night, we’ll see that LAX are better than Beer Money, Matt Morgan is better than Van Dam, Angle better than Del-Rio and Stone Cold better than Sting. Heck, the only good thing you guys got going is Del-Rio anyway, I mean that guy is royalty! Like me!” Tenay and Tazz argue that King’s a royal pain in the backside and tell that Beer Money are one of the best tag teams on the planet and as Mick Foley said earlier, RVD is as hungry as ever. Tenay: “I’m getting on board Tazz. Let’s have Team Blue win and all of the KWF roster can come to our house on Friday nights.” Tazz: “Ahaa, my man.”
♫The Beautiful People’s entrance theme♫ «< click to play) TNA RAW’s Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky makes her provocative entrance with her bestie Angelina Love. The comms remind us of how The Beautiful People have dominated all the women of TNA Raw throughout 2011. Angelina Love retired Trish Stratus once and for all at KWF WrestleMania, The BP took out Awesome Kong just a few weeks after she returned to the wrestling ring and both Love and Sky have gone on to keep the Knockouts Championship within their beautiful grasp throughout most of the year. In the lead up to Survivor Series, The Beautiful People laid out a challenge of duos. They put it across the entire KWF that Knockouts and Divas would team up to face them in a Four Corner Women’s Tag Team match. It’ll be first fall to a finish and the winning team would clearly be the best women’s duo the wrestling industry has ever seen. Michael Cole reiterates that he believes that this challenge by The Beautiful People came about because Velvet didn’t want to defend her Knockouts Championship. Tazz says “Not for nothin’, but err, are you dumb Cole? I mean come on, it’s an inter-brand thing and it’s not like Velvet had an outstanding challenger man. I think this is great. And I wonder who our Diva’s Champions partner’s going to be? And by the way… let the pigeons loose!” The Beautiful People complete their entrance and they’re soon followed by Impact SmackDown’s AJ Lee and her good friend Kaitlyn. These two showed up in the Keystone Wrestling Federation together, but were signed to separate shows. Tonight they get a chance to team up for the first time ever here on KWF Blogs. Kaitlyn and AJ get a great response from this New York crowd. Next up come the most unpredictable duo in this match. The comms concur that we all know what we get from The Beautiful People, we also know what Kaitlyn and AJ bring to the table, but Kelly Kelly and Christy ‘Harley Quinn’ Hemme? Well, they’re Why So Serious girls. That means that we don’t know which Kelly and Christy will show up. We don’t know how they’ll wrestle this, whether they take it lying down or whether they will wrestle for a win. King says “Guys I’ve said this my whole entire life. All women secretly hate each other, but with Why So Serious, their girls have an understanding. They’re unpredictable, but they’re my dark horse for this match. And to counter you talking about the pigeons of The Beautiful People Tazz, I’d just like to pant and bark over Kelly and Christy’s Puppiiieeesss! Hah hah hah hah!” Tenay: “You didn’t really have to pant Jerry.” The Why So Serious girls get quite a big cheer and the comms concur that The Beautiful People may target Kelly and Christy because they may be jealous of their popularity. Tenay and Tazz tell that Why So Serious as a whole receive different responses from fans wherever they go. They remind us of how Gambit and CM Punk fought this past Monday night and the fans booed Gambit because they were very much in favor of Punk. Then we heard The Joker tell the GM that Why So Serious care not for the fans, but then in the main event of the evening, The Joker was pandering to the fans throughout the match, dancing like the old Hardy Boy in Jeff Hardy. But then, a Twist of Hate on the World Title flipped the fans again. Tenay shakes his head saying that there is just too much controversy and chaos with Why So Serious and the concept bleeds into the fans. Michael Cole gives his two cents: “I think a part of everybody likes Why So Serious, I mean, the dark and destructive stuff that they do, their nature and tendency to be bad. They pull it off and I think the audience like that a group of superstars finally has the guts to do that, to do whatever they want.” King calmly says “For once I gotta say that I agree Michael. They’re supposed to be booed, they’re supposed to be the bad guys and they are when say they screw over The Rock or when Gambit faced Punk. But when they’re on their own or against guys like Jericho or even The Beautiful People, the fans suddenly cheer. It’s crazy.” Tenay: “Why So Serious are crazy.” Tazz: “Don’t tell them that. They’ll start telling you how Joker Hardy got his scars. You know I don’t even know the true story to that tale. Maybe I should do some journalist work and ask Jeff. On second thought, maybe not.” Finally we have the entrance of Divas Champion Mickie James. James gets a huge ovation and we await her partner as she stands at the foot of the ramp. Mickie had not determined a partner for tonight, but declined Madison Rayne’s offer to be her partner this past Friday night and James teased that her partner was a Knockout from TNA RAW. Who’s it going to be?… ♫Nattie Music♫ «< click to play) The guitar wails and the Hart Foundation’s music hits as out comes Natalya Neidhart! The audience cheer at the top of their lungs as the comms remind us of how The Beautiful People bagged and embarrassed Natalya in the build up to KWF’s Bound For Glory and how Nattie got the pin over Velvet Sky this past Monday Night. The BP don’t look happy to see Natalya at all and here we go ladies and gentlemen, the KWF’s inter-brand Survivor Series Four Corner Women’s Tag match is finally about to begin.
The Beautiful People vs. Kaitlyn & AJ Lee vs. Kelly Kelly & Christy ‘Harley Quinn’ Hemme vs. Mickie James & Natalya Neidhart – Four Corner first fall to a finish inter-brand Women’s Tag Team match
The bell rings and the match starts off with Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky locking it up with Divas Champion Mickie James. James looks in a great mood as she snapmares Velvet to the canvas to quickly tag Natalya, but Velvet gets up to scamper to a corner and slap the shoulder of Harley Quinn. Christy comes in and she goes back and forth with Natalya. The comms tell of how Christy is such a different person to what she used to be. They say that she’s just infatuated with The Joker now. Tenay says that Christy is often mistreated by Joker Hardy, but she is seemingly irrevocably in love with him. King says he reads Impact SmackDown every week and he’s seen no sign of ‘love’ going from The Joker to ‘Harley’, “but what do I know about love, I’ve been married a hundred times.” Tazz: “What’s love got to do with marriage King?” King: “Touche.” As the contest goes on we see how Harley is not the wrestler that Natalya is, but she manages to tag in Kelly Kelly and the match becomes much more of a contest. Kelly headscissors Natalya to the canvas and then follows with a low dropkick “right in the mush!” Tazz continues by telling that Kelly Kelly is Impact SmackDown’s longest reigning Divas Champion and that under Why So Serious “Kelly is a bad ass!” Kelly Kelly attempts a K2, but Angelina Love yanks her by the hair. This leads to AJ Lee blind tagging Nattie and she comes in to clothesline an oncoming Kelly Kelly. Tazz describes AJ as a firecracker and we watch as she twice takes Kelly Kelly to the canvas. Tenay and Tazz touch on Lee’s slow progression on Impact SmackDown and tell that with the roster spill happening after tonight, perhaps AJ will feel more comfortable in the Women’s locker room by having her good friend Kaitlyn around. King: “Yeah, that’s if Panther lets Kaitlyn of his leash.” Cole: “Oh come on King, their relationship is not like that.” King: “Well I’m jealous Michael alright. I used to like Panther. The cat pissed on the Thundercats and became U.S. Champion under the World Elite. Then he hung with Maryse but now he’s all mushy with Kaitlyn and their bizarre mutual fondness of moustaches. I mean what kind of relationship is based on facial hair?! That cat’s an idiot for sending Maryse packing.” The comms continue to discuss the sub-plots of this match. They tell that The Beautiful People certainly are the favorites because of how long they’ve been together. They explain the tension between AJ and Kelly Kelly (Tenay) “History exists between AJ and Gambit, but their friendship was way before the KWF began. Not so much a love triangle at all, but I just think AJ’s disappointed with the way Remy LeBeau has changed the past few years.” The comms touch on the animosity between Kelly and Mickie, especially given that Mickie James faked her own pregnancy at the hands of, guess who, Remy LeBeau on the night of KWF’s 2010 WrestleMania. Kelly Kelly’s relationship with the Cajun has remained strong though and although Gambit’s head may be turned by various flavors of women, LeBeau still always goes home to the Maxim cover girl. Natalya Neidhart and The Hart Dynasty had fallen to the back of the line so to speak, after the Latin American eXchange’s attack on TNA RAW General Manager Bret Hart. However in recent months we’ve seen Natalya rise toward the Knockouts Title again and after pinning Velvet Sky this past Monday night, Natalya will certainly be looking to avenge the bagging she received by The Beautfiul People with a win here tonight. Mickie James took much time to find herself a partner for this bout, but the Divas Champion remains dear to the fans of the KWF and although she’s never had many friends on the Blue show, she certainly picked a brilliant partner from the Red as both Nattie and Mickie’s wrestling talents come on show tonight. The contest goes on and AJ and Kaitlyn do very well to ground and pound on Kelly Kelly. Harley though typically cheats and we watch as she comes in to yank on a legal Kaitlyn’s hair before shoving her toward the corner of The Beautiful People and here’s where Velvet tags back in. Kelly Kelly goes to slap the shoulder of Mickie James and we’re back to where we started. The match goes on with these lovely scantily clad women fighting it out. Mickie James gets a couple of Two-counts on the Red show’s Champion, but The Beautiful People go on to have a long spell on top. They tag just each other and dominate first Mickie James and then Kaitlyn before targeting Natalya. Nattie is certainly a tough nut to crack though and all hell breaks loose as the Why So Serious girls enter to double team Natalya. The Beautiful People applaud, but Kelly Kelly then trades blows with Velvet. AJ comes in with a flying cross-body and she thwarts Harley Quinn to the canvas. They scrap to ringside as Angelina takes down Kaitlyn. Mickie James comes in with a new energy and she clotheslines both Velvet and Kelly Kelly over the top rope for all three of them to tumble to ringside. Lee sends Harley Quinn back into the squared circle, but as she climbs the apron herself, Christy kicks her on the thighs and AJ’s jaw cracks off the apron. AJ climbs again and we then see Kaitlyn rush Hemme from behind and deck her to ringside. Both of them tumble to the floor as AJ does get back into the squared circle, we watch as Angelina Love measures and then smashes poor AJ right in the face with an almighty Botox Injection! There’s melee at ringside and God knows who’s legal, but the referee counts One! Two! Three!
Winners: Angelina Love and Velvet Sky, The Beautiful People.
Kelly Kelly blows a gasket at ringside. It seems like she desperately wanted herself and Christy to win this one, but it was not to be. The comms review replays and none of them can honestly tell who was legal in the end, but the result remains, The Beautiful People’s challenge has been accomplished by themselves. They are the most dominant women’s duo in all of Pro Wrestling.
Backstage JB talks about the upcoming Handicap match and tells of how there are no Tag Team Title matches tonight. The Dudley Boyz come on to the scene. Bubba Ray says: “You know what JB. It would be a waste of all these people’s time for us to defend these WWE Tag Team Belts tonight. They’ve got better things to do then watch a predictable squash match where The Dudley’s beat some talentless punks then shove 800 splinters in their backs. It’d be over before it began. Now I’m back here in my home of New York City, I can get me a proper subway sandwich, a decent beer, and all I have to do in return, is put up with the mindless idiots who walk the streets of Manhattan. Speaking of mindless idiots, I could do with a little sparring partner. See we New Yorkers have this pent up energy in us all the time, and need to release it by, say, smashing some little twerps face in.” Bubba stares down JB, who gulps and flees the scene. Devon ends with “Oh my brother… ah y’all know the rest.”
We cut to a video package chronicling the long-running rivalry between Triple H and The Dark Side. When Triple H was WWE Champion, he was challenged by The UnderTaker. All was set for The Game versus The Phenom, only for Taker to announce that it would in fact be his monstrous protégé, The Absolute Lashley who would face Triple H at The Great American Bash. The brutal encounter saw Hunter put Lashley through the announcers table, and hit him with a Pedigree, and still not win. A time-limit draw was the final outcome, as The Game failed to vanquish The Beast. At Sovereignty 3 it would finally be Triple H versus The UnderTaker, and after a grueling contest, The Deadman emerged victorious. The hostilities between The Game and The Dark Side have continued ever since, with Triple H never getting his closure after the torment and the suffering that Lashley and Taker brought him. Numerous black outs and attacks have followed. Triple H had had enough. He came out and shocked the world when he came to the ring on TNA RAW and challenged The Dark Side to a Handicap match for Survivor Series. This was accepted by The UnderTaker, and Hulk Hogan reluctantly agreed to book it. The Game is on a mission, although many speculate he has been driven insane by The Dark Side, exemplified by the near impossible task he has set himself. His wife Stephanie was interviewed this past week, and even she doubted his sanity. She said she is fearful not only for him, but for her family’s safety should The Dark Side succeed tonight, and added that she had not seen her husband for a while, as he has been in solitary training for this match. Is Triple H on a personal mission to banish his demons, or has he simply been driven mad by The Phenom and The Beast? Triple H goes up against The Absolute Lashley and The UnderTaker… *BONG!*
The lights go dark and smoke billows around Madison Square Garden. The eerie organ music plays as The UnderTaker and The Absolute Lashley make their slow ways to the ring. Taker removes his hat and jacket after raising the lights, and Lashley just stands in the centre of the ring, staring intently at the entrance. There is a hushed silence before Triple H comes out onto the stage. There’s no music and the comms wonder what’s going on. Hunter looks fierce and ready for a war. After his delay, he starts to pace toward the ring. However, he stops halfway down, and he grabs a mic from the back of his trunks. The comms again wonder what this is about and Hunter says “I am The Game, I am The Cerebral Assassin, I am the King of Kings… but I’m not stupid. Did you guys honestly believe that I was going to face these two all by myself? No, I knew that enticing them into this match was step one. I want retribution, but I know my limits and know that there is no way I, or any man, could do it as one. When Hogan signed the match, he said that if I gathered my senses, I could have a Tag Team partner. The Rock surprised me when he offered at Halloween, but I had to graciously decline, not for the reason I gave, but because I already had a partner in mind, and the night before, I’d already called this man…” ♫Are You Ready?…♫ «< click to play) The lights go out and we can see just the KWF green and black entrance video on the tron. The crowd goes absolutely bananas as they know who’s coming out here. “Is it?” Is it?! It is!!!!” “Oh My God Michael!!!” The fans in the packed out Madison Square Garden rise as one to greet The Showstopper, The Main Event, The Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels!!! HBK comes out and crosses his arms above his head and Hunter does the same as the two of them high ten. They both turn with smiles on their faces and look up at Lashley and Taker, whose expressions don’t seem to have altered one bit. “The history between Triple H and Shawn Michaels, the history between HBK and The UnderTaker, this is now a Tag Team match, and what a match it promises to be!” Cole shouts. “So Triple H acting all determined and tough and idiotic in challenging The Dark Side to a Handicap match was all a ruse to get them here to Survivor Series, but now, they’ve got twice the opponent they bargained for!” The fans chant ‘DX!’ ‘DX!’ ‘DX!’ as MSG’s roof blows off. The bell rings and we get underway.
The Dark Side vs. D-Generation X
It’s Triple H up against The Absolute Lashley as this one begins. They go straight at it, trading rights, as Cole reminds us Michaels has been off of KWF Blogs in the past few months, having been Ric Flair’s chosen one on Impact SmackDown. “He had a run as TNA World Heavyweight Champion, but after a long rivalry with Sting, Shawn stepped out of the limelight for a while, but he’s back with a bang, and has reunited with his buddy Triple H. DX is back! For tonight at least.” The Game has gotten going and throws Lashley against the ropes, before hitting the high knee. He then comes off the ropes and he taunts a DX Chop, before a knee to the temple of The Beast. He gets up and does the DX sign to the fans, who cheer, but this allows Lashley time to sit up. Hunter realizes he can’t mess around in this one if he is to get his vengeance over The Dark Side, so he goes back and pummels Lashley some more. He fires him into the corner and hits a running clothesline. He goes for a Double-A-Spinebuster, but Lashley elbows him in the head, before slamming him down with a Spinebuster of his own. Triple H is flat on his back as Lashley walks slowly over and tags in The UnderTaker. The Phenom gets into the ring and stalks The Game. He walks slowly around him as Hunter begins to stir. Taker grabs him by the arm and climbs the ropes, hitting Old School. He is in control of The Game here, and shoots glares at Shawn Michaels after every third move. He scrapes his arm across the face of Triple H, before pulling him out to the apron and hitting a leg drop across his chest. Taker orders Lashley to hold his elbow up so he can smash Hunter’s head against it, but The Game reaches out and blocks it by grabbing the ropes. He elbows UnderTaker, punches Lashley, then turns and hits his decapitating clothesline on The Deadman! Both men are down. The fans urge Triple H on, as he slowly crawls to his corner. Taker sits up, and he gets to his feet just as Hunter leaps and makes the tag to HBK. The fans go wild as Michaels steps in the ring, and he and The Deadman are face to face for the first time since WrestleMania 25 back in the days of the WWE. “Michaels has been through a whole lot on Impact SmackDown King and I think that the failure to beat Sting has humbled HBK.” “I smell BS Michael. Nobody is humbled by losses, they’re just pissed off!” Shawn and Taker stare at one another for seemingly an age, then take one step each towards one another in turn, before they are nose to nose. Shawn is showing he isn’t intimidated. Taker grabs him by the throat, but Michaels pushes him away, before attempting Sweet Chin Music. Taker ducks and grabs him again, before *BAM!* hitting a Chokeslam! He makes the cover and 1… and 2… and… kick out! “Resilience by HBK. Can you believe it King? The UnderTaker versus Shawn Michaels in Madison Square Garden. Those little hairs are standing on end.” “Aaahh it’s ear-blowingly loud in here Michael, but please stop talking about your nose hair.”
The match goes on with Michaels and Taker rolling back the years and going back and forth, Michaels hitting a reverse atomic drop and chops to the chest, but Taker nails him with a big boot. Lashley is soon tagged back in and he works Michaels over, hitting a savage gorilla press and snap overhead belly-to-belly suplex. However, he can’t put Shawn away, and after a bodyslam, Lashley’s heart is pierced by an old fashioned elbow from the top rope. HBK is lining up for Sweet Chin Music, but Lashley simply grabs his foot and pushes him down. Michaels decides its best to tag back to Hunter, who comes in and we’re back where we started with The Game and The Beast trading blows. The action spills to the outside, and the referee’s letting the count-out go. The Game throws Lashley into the announcers table, but is grabbed from behind by Taker. However, Michaels races round and shouts for Hunter to duck, which he does, allowing Shawn to hit Taker with Sweet Chin Music! “Good Lord! The UnderTaker floored by Sweet Chin Music!” The action comes back in the ring as a recovered Taker tags in, but seems not to be at 100% after the shot in the jaw from HBK’s boot. He is weary, but still gets some offense in on Hunter. He gets Triple H up for a Tombstone, but Hunter blocks it and hits a neckbreaker. Both men are down again, but Lashley comes in and goes to attack Hunter. However, Michaels races in and clotheslines Lashley out of the ring, following him all the way to the mat outside. Triple H and UnderTaker are brawling in the ring, HBK and The Absolute Lashley and brawling out of it. Lashley hits a hard right hand on Shawn, sending him sprawling onto the Spanish announcers table. He grabs Michaels by the hair, then picks him up for a Spinebuster. “Oh no, a Spinebuster through the table, surely not?!” HBK breaks free and *BAM!* Sweet Chin Music again! Now it’s Lashley who’s flat on his back on the announcers table, and while the action continues in the ring, Shawn climbs up to the top rope. “What’s he gonna do Michael?! Aaahhhh!!!!” The Heartbreak Kid flies through the air and slams through both The Beast and the Spanish announcers table! The fans are on their feet going crazy. Meanwhile, back in the ring. UnderTaker isn’t realizing the peril of his protégé, and is beating down The Game. UnderTaker slaughters Triple H down with a big boot and covers for just Two. He then hits him with a Last Ride, and this must be it; One! Two! – wow, Shawn Michaels dives back in the ring at the last second to prevent Taker getting Three. This is exactly why Michaels is here tonight, backing Triple H all the way. UnderTaker gets up to battle with Shawn, but as he swings Michaels against the ropes, HBK fires back with a flying forearm to the forehead of The Deadman! Michaels kips up and “King, King, Lashley’s up, Lashley’s on the apron!” “Aaaah!” King cries as Michaels boots The Absolute Lashley off the ring apron with Sweet Chin Music! The fans go absolutely nuts as The UnderTaker is back up and he grabs HBK head over heels for a possible Tombstone, but Shawn struggles and scraps out of it and with Triple H’s help, Shawn drops off Taker’s back and The Game is up, he’s fresh and he nails a boot to the gut and *BAM!* Pedigree!!! Triple H hooks the leg and 1… 2… 3!!!
Winners: Triple H and Shawn Michaels, D-Generation X!
MSG goes wild as Cole says “He did it! He did it! Triple H finally did it! He pinned The Dark Side, he BEAT The Dark Side, and thanks to his old friend Shawn Michaels, The Game can finally put his Dark Side Demons behind him.” King adds “For the first time since this epic rivalry with The UnderTaker began, finally Triple H has been able to pin the Deadman. What a match!” DX celebrate in typical DX fashion until a *BONG* goes off and the lights go out. When they come back on the arena grounds are covered and surrounded by smoke. It even fills the canvas of the ring. Hunter and Shawn kick through the smoke and wonder what’s gone on. Taker’s body has gone. We see the ringside area and there’s no Lashley either. Triple H and HBK look to one another, then just shrug their shoulders and ♫Break it Down!♫ DX’s music hits again and they continue their celebration. What a night.
We cut into highlights of last month’s KWF pay-per-view, Bound For Glory. AJ Styles defended his WWE Championship against Wade Barrett in an epic encounter which saw both men out on their feet in pursuit of ultimate Glory. The Phenomenal One mustered up the energy to hit a Pele, and was all set to end things with the Spiral Tap. “Whoa, whoa, whoa! What’s this? Looket! It’s John Cena!” We hear Michael Cole cry as The Doctor of Thuganomics races into the ring and hits a devastating FU on Styles, before waking the previously knocked cold ref so he can count Barrett in as the new WWE Champion. The Bound For Glory Screw Job kicked off a war between Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair once it emerged that The Nature Boy was the man responsible for this seemingly random attack. Hogan and Flair did agreed, that Styles and Cena should face off at KWF Survivor Series, with the winner becoming the number one contender for their respective show’s Championship. During AJ’s WWE Title rematch against Wade Barrett in the 3-Hour Halloween Special of TNA RAW, he had Barrett in trouble again, but once more, Cena interrupted and knocked him out cold with his thick Steel Chain. Styles had been screwed out of the WWE Title for a second time, but it was later revealed by Cena that this attack was all him. He explained that he resented that a ‘flea’ like AJ Styles was WWE Champion, and that the whole world refer to AJ as a great wrestler and not him. He accused Styles of being too lightweight and said he should go back to the Indy scene. Last week on TNA RAW, a certain Stone Cold Steve Austin called AJ out and challenged him on how he was going to defeat Cena. Styles, for the first time, vented his fury toward Cena, and stated that the Doctor is going to get his head Pele’d off of his shoulders. What started as a matter of business between Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan has come to a head here as the personal animosity between AJ Styles and John Cena boils over. Before the KWF, one was the face of TNA, the other the poster boy of WWE. It’s TNA versus WWE, it’s TNA RAW versus Impact SmackDown.

AJ Styles vs. John Cena – Winner becomes number one contender to the top Championship of their respective show
The Doctor of Thuganomics sticks two fingers up at the loudly booing Garden as he gets in the ring, but is soon taken down in a dump tackle by Styles. The fans cheer as AJ is pummeling Cena with rights. “Retribution is on the agenda for AJ tonight huh King?” “Look at him go, the bell hasn’t even rung yet Michael!” After the ref tries to pry him off, The Phenomenal One eventually lets up and flings his arms out to the chanting crowd. ‘AJ Styles!’ *clap* *clap* *clap-clap-clap* ‘AJ Styles!’ *clap* *clap* *clap-clap-clap* The ref calls for the bell and the match is officially underway, but Cena rolls out of the ring to gather himself. Styles doesn’t wait as he flies through the air, over the top rope and onto Cena with a somersault plancha! The fans cheer again as AJ continues the assault. “Can you believe this Michael? AJ Styles versus John Cena in Madison Square Garden, doesn’t get much bigger than this and AJ is going wild on Cena, who’d have thought this coming?!” “AJ’s been a scapegoat in this rivalry between Flair and Hulk, but tonight Styles stands up and shows he can mix it up with anybody.” Styles is bringing the fight early, and he’s unleashing his best moves all over Cena before slamming him into the steel steps. He follows that with a knee to the skull, before sliding in and out of the ring. He slams Cena against the Impact SmackDown announcers table, before trying to throw him into the barrier. However, Cena reverses it and Styles goes crashing over it and into the front row of the audience. They try and help him up, but Cena comes over and hits a big forearm which sends him sprawling over more fans. Cena reaches over and grabs Styles by the back of the neck, before pulling him over the barrier and pushing his back into it again. Styles screams out, but Cena isn’t done. “AJ’s in trouble Michael, this is exactly what Cena was talking about, he’s twice the size and twice as strong as AJ.” The Doctor of Thuganomics picks AJ up and runs him back first into the steel ring post. The referee leans out and warns them he will count them out. Cena rolls AJ into the ring and follows. Cole and King point out that working on Styles back should eliminate much of his high flying arsenal, which makes Cena the heavy favorite. The tables have really turned here as The Doctor throws AJ around the ring like a rag doll. He launches him into the corner, before running out and hitting a bulldog. He lays stomps into the small of AJ’s back, as King comments that Cena’s ‘ruthless aggression’ has never left him. As Cena gets Styles in a bear hug, Cole comments on what he believes is at the crux of this hatred Cena has for AJ. “Whether rightly or wrongly, despite his numerous WWE and World Heavyweight Championships, there are a lot of wrestling fans who don’t believe Cena has, or ever has had, the high level of technical in ring skill required to be given the chances he’s had. On the other hand AJ Styles has a reputation as being one of the finest in-ring performers of his generation and was shunned by the WWE as a youngster. He went to TNA when it began and became a household name and symbol of the company. Now in the KWF he has been given his opportunity and was running with it, until Cena got in his way. I think Cena resents the fact that Styles is considered the better wrestler, and is looking to prove that he is just as good or better by beating him tonight.” “That’s boohockey Michael. Cena isn’t that insecure. Sure there are idiots who boo him, but that’s just cos he’s a Thug in the KWF. You can’t win the number of World Titles he has by being a bad wrestler, and AJ only has a better rep because he flies all over the place. There’s no skill in that, it’s what Mick Foley was doing off his roof decades ago. ‘Glorified stuntmen’ I think Ric Flair called it once. It’s cool to watch, but one thump from Cena and Styles is gonna be out like a light!”
The match continues as Styles has been able to break free of the bear hug and fought back, only for Cena to hold his own. It has gone back and forth a number of times, with Cena using his power moves and Styles using the ropes as often as possible. Cena is back on top and picks AJ up only to slam him down to set up for the 5-Knuckle Shuffle. He comes off the ropes and kicks that dirt off his shoulder, but AJ from nowhere reverses with a kip-up frankensteiner. The fans cheer as Styles hits a jumping knee drop. Styles is back in control now and hits a further series of moves including a cut-under neckbreaker and a moonsault into an inverted DDT. He has the crowd on its feet as he heads out to the apron and springs off to hit a flying forearm smash. “Vintage AJ Styles!” Cole says as AJ goes for the cover but Cena kicks out at Two. He grabs Cena and throws him shoulder first into the steel post, before running over, only to get elbowed away. Tazz: “That’s right bubb, show him who’s boss John come on!” Cena tries to rub some feeling back into his shoulder, before running across with a clothesline attempt. AJ ducks and goes for a Pele, but Cena catches his foot and works it into an STFU! “”What a reversal from Cena, and AJ is in trouble!” Tenay shouts. Styles is in clear pain as Cena leans back to put extra pressure on AJ’s battered back. The comms all bicker as Tenay and Tazz tell Cole and King that Cena’s about to win. Styles refuses to tap though and reaches for the ropes, eventually he is able to grab them. Cena holds on as the referee counts, and he lets go at Four. He grabs the foot and drags AJ into the middle of the ring, before trying it again, but Styles kicks him away. AJ gets up, but this time gets floored with a ferocious clothesline. The former Thundercat is on his back as Cena this time successfully executes the 5-Knuck Shuffle, before holding his arms up to the crowd, who boo back. He taunts ‘You Can’t See Me’ toward the audience, before lining AJ up for an FU. As Styles gets to his feet, The Doctor lifts him on his shoulders and stares out at the fans, before launching him off. But AJ lands on his feet and *BAM!* Pele! “Aaaaah!!!” cry Tenay and King as Styles crawls across and makes a cover. 1… 2… NO! Cena kicks out. Styles is remonstrating with the official, sure that he should have gotten Three there. The ref says no, as Cena crawls over to the corner. He reaches for something. AJ goes across to try and pick Cena up again, but Cena hits a hard right hand right to the skull. Styles falls back as if he’s been hit by a bus. He is out cold and flat on his back as Cena messes with the apron. “Wait, what just happened?” Cole asks. “Cena had his chain Michael, that dastardly steel chain!” explains Mike Tenay as Cena slowly gets to his feet and lifts the limp, lifeless body of AJ, gets him up onto his shoulders, and connects with an FU. He hooks the leg and gets One… gets Two… gets Three and New York boos like hell.
Winner: John Cena.
♫John Cena’s KWF theme!♫ «< click to play) Cena’s music hits as the fans in the Garden almost booooo the roof off the place. “John Cena just beat AJ Styles Michael, and now he is the number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Title!” “Indeed King, but lets take a look at the replay. Cena’s tough, but how was AJ knocked cold by what looked like a standard right hand?” Tazz: “It was a knockout right hook Cole, Cena could do that to anyone. I wish he’d show you personally.” We see a replay and “Aha!” Cole shouts as Tenay clarifies, “I knew it, Cena’s trademark thick steel chain!” the pictures show that while Cena was in the corner, he wrapped his ‘Word Life’ steel chain around his hand before clobbering AJ with it. Cole says “Cena should have been Disqualified!” Tazz: “Shoulda, woulda, coulda Michael. Cena won, he’s getting his hand raised, and that’s all that matters.” AJ is still unconscious on the canvas as Cena pushes the official out the way, before wiping sweat from his brow and flicking it on the body of Styles. Cena arrogantly shrugs his shoulders before grabbing his chain from the corner and then exiting up the ramp.
Remy LeBeau and Kelly Kelly are on a motorcycle in the parking lot and they are about to leave. We see Panther getting out of his Jaguar and he comes across to the Cajun and K2. “You’re a little late aren’t you homme?” “I know man, got stuck at JFK and the traffic is torrid in New York. Had to make it to see out the rest of the show though.” “Your old pal AJ just got beat.” “Yeah I spoke to Kaitlyn, damn shame. I hear your girl got beat too?” Kelly frowns at the cat and turns her head to rest it on Gambit’s upper back while on the bike. Gambit asks who Panther thinks will win the Team Red vs. Team Blue match. Panther says his heart wants Team Red, because he’s been on TNA RAW since the beginning of the KWF and he doesn’t see anything other than the Interim GM Hulk Hogan in charge. But his head says Team Blue because he can’t see how LAX and Matt Morgan are going to be anything but a hindrance, even with Stone Cold leading them. Gambit agrees, and says that Team Blue look really strong with Sting leading the way with Beer Money and Van Dam and all. “De KWF’s been going for 28 months and no matter what, de format changes after tonight.” Panther shakes his head and says “Sure sure, but I don’t get you Why So Serious lot. One minute you’re all bad and then you’re trying to be all good, protecting the honor of your show.” Gambit nonchalantly responds by saying “that’s just how we are.” Kelly Kelly verbally nudges Panther away and says “You know, we really have to go.” Panther: “Wait, Remy, aren’t you staying for Joker’s match? And the main event?” Kelly puts on her motorcycle helmet as Gambit revs the throttle. “No homme, the rest of the show writes itself and de sweet Kelly Kelly is a little mad after the girl fight. Perhaps Gambit can ease her tensions oui?” Panther nods and sets to head toward the building but says “Alright, well I guess I’ll see you guys around.” Gambit puts on his helmet and says “Maybe, but cat, no matter what happens, De Name… (puts down his visor) is Gambit.” Kelly yells: “Remember it!” as the Cajun rides off with the blonde.
We come back to the TNA RAW announcers table where Cole and King run us through the upcoming WWE Title match that has been five months in the making. Back in June of this year, Mr. Anderson was rivaling Panther, then of the World Elite, for the United States Belt. World Elite leader Wade Barrett was determined that his group would hold on to all of its Titles, and so like a dictator, directed Panther and Big Rob Terry to take Anderson out of the equation. They did just that, attacking Anderson in the locker room and putting him on the shelf for an indeterminate amount of time. That turned out to be four months as Anderson returned the night after Bound For Glory to attack Barrett and shock everyone in the process. Anderson made his peace with the reformed Panther, but still took the time to beat him in a one-on-one match. He then went on to defeat The UnderTaker a couple of weeks later, partially thanks to Triple H, only to be blindsided and floored with WasteLand by Barrett. Anderson’s momentum gave him the confidence to demand a WWE Title shot from Hulk Hogan this past Monday, saying that after all the trials and tribulations he’s been through this past year, he’s due. Hogan agreed, but Barrett didn’t. Hogan said the match was on, but Barrett demanded that Anderson face Rob Terry first. Both Hogan and Ken agreed, and Anderson defeated Terry that very night. Mr. Anderson finally gets his hands on the man who caused him to miss almost half of 2011 with injury, can he take the prize that Barrett holds above all others?
Wade Barrett vs. Mr. Anderson – WWE Title match
The former leader of the World Elite stands alone, as the comms tell us that Hulk Hogan has banned Rob Terry from ringside. Anderson comes out on stage and announces himself. “I hail from Greeeeeen Baaaaay Wisconsiiiiiinnnnn… And I am the guy who is, in front of a packed out Madison Square Garden full of Assholes, going to kick Wade Barrett’s ass and take the WWE Title from him… Mmmiistteerrr Annderrrsoonnnnn!… Annnderrrsooonnnnn!” The fans cheer as Anderson’s music continues and he marches to the ring. Once both men are good to go, the official calls for the bell and we are underway. Anderson is on the offensive early on, with a lot of anger to vent on Barrett, who he feels not only cost him the United States Title back in June, but four months of his career as well. He backs Barrett into the corner and hits him with stomps as he drops down. Anderson backs off, before racing over again and hitting a facewash. The fans chant for him as he doesn’t let up. He lifts Barrett up and hits a neckbreaker, going for an early pin but getting barely Two. He argues with the ref, before leaning over Barrett, but the Brit grabs him and pulls him through the ropes to the outside. Barrett follows and gathers himself, before flooring Anderson with a big boot. He raises his arms to the booing crowd, before throwing Ken back into the ring. Barrett is in control now and really looks comfortable as he works through his moveset. He hits a pendulum backbreaker, a pumphandle slam and a European uppercut, before he locks on a submission maneuver. He kneels behind a sitting Anderson and digs his knee into his back while pulling both arms back. He wrenches this on which causes Anderson to groan out in pain. He has Anderson in the middle of the ring, and the referee is asking the self proclaimed ‘Asshole’ if he gives up. Anderson is consistently shouting “No!” as he tries to free himself. The fans clap their hands together as one, trying to urge Anderson to break the hold. He is able to force himself up onto his feet, then turns around the kick Barrett in the gut, before coming off the ropes and hitting a swinging neckbreaker. He hits a couple of knee drops to the head and then an elbow. He goes for a pin but Barrett kicks out easily. He picks Barrett up and throws him into the corner, before running over to try a clothesline. Barrett gets the elbow up, then hits a huge right to send Anderson down to the canvas. The BareKnuckle Brawler rubs his head and turns to face into the corner. As the referee checks on Anderson, Barrett undoes the turnbuckle pad and pulls it off, dropping it to the outside. The referee doesn’t notice immediately as the match continues.
WWE Champion Wade Barrett is on top again and hits a sidewalk slam into a backbreaker, getting a Two-count. He looks over to the corner with no top pad, and grabs Anderson’s head. He attempts to slam it into the bare steel buckle, but Anderson gets his foot on the middle rope and blocks it, before elbowing Barrett and slamming his head into it! He rolls the dazed Champ up and gets 1… 2… kick out! “So close we were to crowning a new WWE Champion King!” “He cheated!” Anderson lifts Barrett up and manages, impressively, to get him up on his shoulders, before hitting the rolling fireman’s carry slam. He pins again, and again gets a near fall. The momentum is really with the Asshole now, and he heads to the top rope. “He’s going for the Kenton Bomb King!” He flies off, but Barrett gets the knees up and drives them into Anderson’s back as he crashes down. He then grabs Anderson’s legs and aims to slingshot him into the bare corner. He goes for it, but misjudges. Anderson flies too far and ends up smacking his head on the top of the steel corner post. “Oh God what an impact!” “Well it wasn’t what Barrett intended, but look, it had the desired effect.” King is referring to the fact that Anderson is bleeding. Barrett hits a suplex, before getting up and roaring to the crowd. They boo him fiercely as he struts around with his usual cocky swagger. He picks up the dazed Anderson, who now has blood absolutely pouring from his head. “Oh my, I think the referee may have to stop this match King.” The blood is all in his hair and covering his face, dripping onto his chest. Barrett shows no mercy though and hits punches to Ken’s wound before a spinebuster, pinning but getting only Two. “Such resilience from Anderson.” Cole analyses. That resilience looks to be done though as the staggering Anderson walks right into Barrett’s pick up, and slam down of WasteLand. “Oh what a devastating WasteLand, and this one’s done.” 1… 2… NO!!! “Oh My God!! Anderson kicked out!!!” The fans roar as Barrett looks on in absolute shock. “What!?!??!” says King. Barrett has his hands on his head, then a look of anger shoots across him as he stomps at Anderson. He hits him with more rights, a boot to the gut, and then lifts him up once more. He looks defiantly at the crowd, before roaring out loudly and slamming Anderson down, but wait, Ken has landed on his feet and nails Wade with a feint roundhouse kick spun into an enziguiri! Both men are down as the fans chant for Anderson. There are blood stains on the canvas as Anderson tries to get to his feet. Barrett struggles up as well, and then… *BAM!* “Mic Check! Mic Check! Mic Check!” yelps Cole. From out of nowhere Anderson managed to hit Barrett with the Mic Check. He rolls on top of Barrett as the referee counts 1… 2… NO!!! Foot on the rope, Wade Barrett’s foot is on the rope! Anderson looks like he has no clue where he is and is just fighting on instinct. Barrett rolls out of the ring to try and recover. Once he does, he grabs Anderson by the boot and pulls him out. They trade blows. Both men have abandoned their tactics and are just fighting now over the WWE Title. They continue to punch one another, and even start climbing the steel steps as they do. They’re now on the apron, swinging hard shots at one another, until… *BAM!* Mic Check on the apron!!! Anderson floors Barrett with a second Mic Check, and he falls to the outside himself. Barrett is left on the apron, so Anderson pulls himself up, still bleeding all over the place, and pushes his opponent back in the ring. He learns his lesson this time as he gets back in, and pulls Barrett into the middle. But he doesn’t pin. He looks to the corner, and the fans cheer as he climbs the ropes, looks out to the crowd and flies off to connect with the Kenton Bomb. He just lays over Barrett as the referee counts 1… 2…AND 3!!!
Winner and New WWE Champion: Mr. Anderson!
… Annnnnderrrrsooonnnnnnn… “What… A… Match!” Cole says emphatically. “Wow! Mr Anderson wins! I didn’t see that coming Michael, especially not after being busted open and hit with WasteLand!” “After months of pain and run-ins with Wade Barrett and the World Elite, tonight, Mr. Anderson finally got Barrett one-on-one and he took the former World Elite leader’s WWE Championship!” Anderson is on his back as the referee lays the WWE Title across his chest and then raises his hand. Eventually, Ken is able to come to and pulls himself up to his feet thanks to the official and the ropes. The ref hands him the Belt again, and he raises it to the crowd. The iconic image of Mr. Anderson, hair and face covered in his own blood, holding aloft his first ever WWE Championship. “And that, King, is how much it takes to become WWE Champion. What a night!”
Backstage ‘Mean’ Gene talks to Jeff and Karen Jarrett about the WCW Title. Jeff belittles Jay Lethal and says that he’s the greatest WCW Champion ever. Gene says that the marquee WCW pay-per-view, Starrcade, is Live next month at KWF Blogs “Will you be defending your Title then Mister WCW Champ?” “Gene don’t talk to me like I don’t know my duty. I’m the King Of The Mountain around here and come Starrcade, yes, my Title will be on the line, but I won’t be losing it! I’ve got some stroke in this business isn’t that right baby?” (Karen) “Oh that’s right my King. Gene, your questions and your tone is an insult to the both of us. My husband is a model Champion and come Starrcade, no matter who challenges, no one will be able to take this Gold away from my Big Daddy.” “Is that right?” says a voice and onto the scene comes Kevin Nash! Nash smiles at the nervous Jarrett’s and says that he and Jeff have some unfinished business. Nash calls Jeff a “pussy” for not putting the Belt on the line against his fellow Wolfpac comrade ‘Black Machismo’ – “But you know what, I’m not even surprised. Lethal beat you fair and square and he’s the one that should be carrying that Belt, not you and especially not you Liz!” Karen: “Don’t start that crap with me Kevin!” Jeff Jarrett says that Jay Lethal could never measure up to him and neither can Kevin Nash. “You and the Wolfpac are a joke, a bunch of has-beens! Look at you Kev’, all you do is walk around backstage and get thrown in the odd match. You got Harlem Heat begging for a Tag Title rematch and Sting as Captain of Team Blue. What a joke. Your faction’s scattered all over the place and you’re the Grand Daddy Wolf, walking alone on your zimmer-frame!” Karen laughs as she and Jeff Jarrett back off. ‘Mean’ Gene asks Nash “Kevin Nash, are you or Jay Lethal going to go after the WCW Gold at Starrcade?” Nash: “Wait and see Gene, wait and see.”
We’re shown a video package enlaced with laughter from Why So Serious leader, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Jeff ‘The Joker’ Hardy. The story is told of how Jeff Hardy went from being a valued member of the Wolfpac when the KWF first came about, but he very quickly switched and his character embraced the mindset and outlook of one of DC Comics most feared villains; The Joker. Jeff Hardy went on to dress as The Joker, have his face painted exactly like The Joker and after going alone for a short while, he turned to his former Wolfpac comrade Remy LeBeau. LeBeau, one of Marvel’s original X-Men has often been known to be a mysterious man. True that LeBeau has had many bedfellows, good and bad, but after leaving the Wolfpac to combine with Hardy, Gambit and The Joker went on to torment the world of the KWF every Friday night. Gambit stole Kelly Kelly’s heart and ‘woo’d’ her into being his woman. The trio were dubbed Why So Serious and they grew as they tortured The Monster Abyss only to recruit him into their sadistic pantomime. Christy Hemme joined after falling for The Joker and now Why So Serious after having Tag Title glory, Divas Title glory and World Title glory under Abyss, now their leader is the man carrying the torch and tonight he’s invited Chris Jericho, the Masked Demon Kane and CM Punk into the hellacious concept that is The Joker’s Playground. The Joker’s Playground has only once been fought in before, just over a year ago at KWF’s Bound For Glory 2010 where Abyss defeated Bill Goldberg to become the TNA World Heavyweight Champion. The Joker’s Playground consists of a Hell In A Cell base. There’s chains hanging from the outside and weapons hanging from the roof of the cell on the inside. For someone like The Joker, this is a Playground, but can any of the rest of them survive and who will leave New York City as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion? We find out Live, next, at KWF Survivor Series! ♫Why So Serious♫ «< click to play)
Jeff ‘The Joker’ Hardy vs. Chris Jericho vs. Kane vs. CM Punk – Fatal-Four-Way Joker’s Playground match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Mike Tenay and Tazz are shivering as the bell rings and this unpredictable contest gets under way. CM Punk backs up and exits the ring as The Joker and Chris Jericho trade early holds. Tazz says that he didn’t expect this to be so much of a wrestling match and Tenay suggests that Jericho perhaps re-read the Impact SmackDown Blog this past Friday night and maybe he realizes that he can wrestle this match to win it. Kane just stands there for the moment, but then we see that this won’t be so much of a wrestling match as CM Punk immediately brings a steel chair into the ring and *WHAM* he almost knocks The Joker’s head off! The crowd go nuts as we see multiple replays of the impact of the move. Punk covers, he gets One, Two – but Kane picks him up. “Good God, what strength!” The Masked Demon, rejuvenated and reborn as the robotic Masked Big Red Monster here in the KWF, Kane grabs Punk and press slams him over the top rope and *CRUNCH* we hear a massive smash as Punk’s body crashes against the mesh of the steel at ringside. Chris Jericho opportunistically goes for a cover on The Joker for One, Two – but Joker kicks out. Kane stalks CM Punk at ringside as Jericho grounds and pounds The Joker in the ring. The comms discuss how this certainly is a match that The Joker has put together, it’s from the deepest darkest corners of his mind, but “Tazz is this smart? I mean one thing we’ve barely touched on is the fact that three men are after The Joker here tonight. The Joker is a marked man and all of his competition tonight is very capable of winning the TNA World Heavyweight Title.” “Oh Mike I agree, but just because the bell has rung and the match is under way doesn’t mean that this is all there is to this match. I mean for one, we don’t know what The Joker’s motives are. A year ago when Why So Serious got Abyss the Championship, they went on to almost bonfire the World Title on Guy Fawkes night remember that? And tonight, yes, The Joker is a marked man, but this isn’t an elimination match. Anybody can pin anybody. We’ve said it over and over again, nobody knows what Why So Serious’ motives are and the fact that there’s four guys fighting for the Title in this environment probably just makes The Joker laugh Mike. He’s all for chaos and anarchy.” Tenay reminds us that when Abyss defeated Bill Goldberg in the first ever Joker’s Playground at Bound For Glory 2010, all of Why So Serious played their hand so to speak, in the outcome of the match, “but we’ve seen Gambit and Kelly Kelly leave the arena Tazz. Christy Hemme’s not out here. I just wonder whether The Joker’s planning to retain the World Title or not.” “Ahh, we’ve heard Joker say it before Mike, he’s not a guy that has plans. I don’t know what’s gonna happen, but even God don’t know what’s happening in that psycho’s head I’m tellin’ ya.” The match goes on and we watch as Kane goes to the Cell door and lifts it to rip it right off its hinges! “Just like his debut Tazz! Kane is the monster right out of hell that seethes fear into all those who oppose him.” “And then some Mike! I remember Vincento McMahon on commentary, That’s Gotta Be Kane! That’s Gotta Be Kane! and then he ripped the doors off the Cell, Tombstoned his brother and went on to give nightmares to kids for the next five years. Ahh the good ol’ days.” “Tazz you mention his brother. I know D-X won here tonight, but has it occurred to you that after tonight we get Why So Serious, Kane and The Dark Side all under one roof?!” “Err, I err, let’s, let’s not talk about it Mike. It’s too freakin’ scary.” Kane dominates Punk around ringside, but then Punk begins climbing the Cell. We see Jericho and The Joker bring the fight outside the Cell and Jericho trash talks Kane but this is a mistake because he just tilts his head to stare darkly through Y2J and then he damn near uppercuts Jericho’s head off. The Joker begins to climb the chains of the Cell, following CM Punk to the roof. The jam-packed audience is on their feet as Punk awaits. He and The Joker trade punches whilst both on their knees. Meanwhile down below, Kane splits apart the steel steps. He places the bottom panel right between where the door was and the foot of the ramp. He’s got Jericho where he wants him and “Oh my God, he’s trying to Tombstone him Tazz!” Jericho fights and scraps though and soon he slides off Kane’s back to then facecrush him right onto the panel of the stairs. “Mike, Mike! Look up, look up!” The Joker and CM Punk are on their feet, but they’re right on the edge of the Cell. Joker goes for a kick, Punk catches his leg, but Joker flips inside out to mule kick Punk and “LOOK OOOUUUT!” screams Mike Tenay as CM Punk is kicked off the Cell! He falls all the way down onto a fallen Kane, a fallen Jericho and we hear a grueling thud as Punk’s body crashes into the panel of the stairs…
We see a few fans with shocked looks on their faces…
We see many who averted their eyes as soon as Punk got kicked…
We see thousands and thousands of this capacity crowds instant reaction as CM Punk fell to his doom…
The comms take us through replays. Madison Square Garden is stunned in silence. Replays show that although Punk’s mass landed on Kane and Jericho, the gravitational pull just had him crash into the steel so hard that not only may Punk have broken bones, but so may Jericho and Kane. EMT’s come rushing to the scene, there’s a flood of referees and security as this process takes quite some time. The camera pans up and The Joker, “The Joker’s laughing?!” Mike Tenay goes berserk “He’s laughing Tazz?! Is this what you wanted?! Is this how you wanted to play?!!!! Who the hell do you think you are?!” Tazz: “Mike calm down man.” There is a very long pause as EMT’s check on all three challengers for the World Title.
Finally, there’s a murmur in the audience. “Mike look, Punk’s moving!” “Oh thank God.” We watch as CM Punk not only moves, but he drags himself to his feet! We hear him through camera microphone “Get me in the ring, get me in the ring” he says. EMT’s pick him up, but he flops to the ground. We hear the medics all concur that Chris Jericho is out of it. They put a neck brace on him and immediately put him onto a stretcher. All the while The Joker is laughing atop the Cell. The fans boo like hell as he slowly descents from the other side of the cage, right by the announcers table where Mike Tenay is yelling at him. Joker laughs right in Tenay’s face and then yells “Why So Serious?! Whhyyy Soo Serious?! Ha ha ha ha ho hoo ho!” Tenay yells “You are the bad guys! You’re pure evil! Look what you’ve done! Look what you’ve done!” The Joker laughs as he walks off and Tazz says that this match cannot go on. The Joker walks around the Cell structure and as he gets to the other side where the carnage is, you wouldn’t believe your eyes but Kane… sits… up. Kane sits up! “Oh my God” gasps Tazz as Kane stands up! EMT’s are trying to help CM Punk as Jericho is taken away presumably to a hospital. The Joker walks toward Kane who smashes him down with an uppercut that sends him head over heels and the fans cheer almost as loud as they’ve been all night! They scream for Kane as he grounds The Joker and punches the lights out of him! “Get him Kane! Get him! Wipe that stupid smile off his face!” yells Tenay. Kane then chokes The Joker before standing up and launching him to the steel of the Cell. The audience cheer as Kane smashes The Joker into the chains. He then smashes The Joker face-first into the chains, just beating the holy hell out of him, but The Joker is laughing! He’s still laughing! “Mike there’s nothing you can do to him, Kane’s gonna kill’m man!” “Good! He deserves it, for God sake get rid of him Kane!” The Joker bleeds from his face, right by his painted scarred smile. Kane sends him back toward the ring where we see that CM Punk has amazingly been able to get himself in. The Joker climbs in and crawls on his knees. Kane steps onto the apron, but as he does that, there’s a Monster that comes out from under the ring. It’s Abyss! Why So Serious’ Monster Abyss steps out from the opposite side of under the ring. He steps onto the apron opposite Kane. They both step over the top rope at exactly the same time and they collide in the middle of the squared circle. The crowd boo every punch from Abyss and cheer every punch from Kane. They battle back and forth, but Kane’s adrenaline to take it to Hardy has run low. Abyss is the much fresher and he goes on to dominate Kane to ringside, but Kane still shows some fight as they trade heavy blows all the way up the ramp. “Two masked Monster’s battling it out, but Abyss had no right to be here!” “We said it at the opening of the match Mike, Why So Serious typically have an ace up their sleeve.” Back to the ring though we watch as CM Punk is waking up. It’d be a miracle if he can do anything here. Hardy, The Joker stumbles to his feet. He sees Punk and goes to grab the steel chair from earlier. The two meet toward the centre of the ring and Punk’s on his feet too! “He should’ve gotten out of here Mike, he’s in no condition to wrestle!” “The World Title means too much to him Tazz, but I agree, CM Punk be careful!” The Joker swings with the chair, but Punk has the wherewithal to duck. He turns Joker round and kicks his hand so that he drops the chair. He kicks him right up side his bloodied face and then lifts him up over his shoulders! “Mike this is amazing!” “Unprecedented Tazz! Punk! Punk’s gonna become World Champion!” *BAM* Go-To-Sleep connecting! Punk falls right over The Joker’s body for the pin and New York and the world count ‘One!’ ‘Two!’ ‘Three!’
Winner and New TNA World Heavyweight Champion: CM Punk.
♫CM Punk theme♫ «< click to play) “WE HAVE A NEW WORLD CHAMPION!” screams Mike Tenay! The medics and refs and security and even some KWF background staff swarm the ring to see to Punk right away. “We do not know where the fight between Kane and Abyss has taken them, but CM Punk, the man who claims to be the best in the world, he’s just overcome all the odds to take the World Championship in The Joker’s Playground!” “Mike I can’t believe it man. I’m lost for words as to how this match panned out. All the weapons from the roof of the Cell, none of them were even touched and we got all this carnage. Man, what The Joker did and the way in which he laughed it off was ill of Pro Wrestling. He’s sadistic, the guy’s just plain nuts. But God Mike, CM Punk, how’s he still moving?!” Medics and referees take CM Punk on a stretcher and we see the match ref place the World Title over his torso and Punk has just about enough energy left to raise his arm. What a series of events in this horrific, barbaric Joker’s Playground and ladies and gentlemen, we’re not done yet!
We’re shown a commercial package that tells us that KWF’s next pay-per-view extravaganza will be KWF Starrcade, Live December 18th right here at KWF Blogs.
Along with Mike Tenay and Tazz we see Michael Cole and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler at their announcers tables. Cole says that, as part of the KWF and as a KWF fan, he’s so glad to see CM Punk win the World Championship off Joker Hardy here tonight. King says that he has never ever seen a freak like The Joker, to do all he has and then laugh it off. Cole says that The Joker may have lost the match, but he accomplished all that Why So Serious stand for. He caused injuries, he caused the worst to come out of good people like Mike Tenay and still at the end of it, he’s probably the one going home of his own accord tonight. Tazz says that this match was a hell of a reminder that Why So Serious are not to be messed with and that the rest of them feed off The Joker. “We saw Abyss out here, we saw how angry Kelly and Christy got after their loss earlier and we saw how violent Gambit got when he fought Punk last Friday night. They’re off their rockers are Why So Serious and they should not be messed with.” King: “Ha, they should be put in a mental asylum. All of them!”
As the Cell is raised and the ring cleared, Michael Cole changes tracks and the comms all set us up for our main event of the evening. The comms tell that we haven’t seen Hulk Hogan all night, but we’re understanding that Jeremy Borash has been awaiting Hulk’s arrival and he’s coming in right now in the parking lot. We go split screen and see JB approach the Hulkster. Hogan says that traffic has held him up, “but I’m not missing the demise of Ric Flair for the world brother!” Hogan quickly steps past Borash as this high stakes traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series match is set to get underway. Outside the TNA RAW locker room backstage we see Stone Cold Steve Austin pep talk Team TNA RAW. Austin: “Let’s get out there, whoop some ass and keep the KWF running as two shows. Remember, the roster spills over whether we win or lose, so let’s make sure we win. One show a week means there’ll undoubtedly be some cuts around here and hell no does anybody wanna work under Ric Flair.” LAX nod rubbing their hands together. Austin asks them whether they’re all ready to go win this war. LAX nod as Kurt Angle excitedly shouts “Hell Yeah! Whhoooo!” Austin: “Don’t woo you dumb b*stard, that’s a Blue show thing!” Matt Morgan says “Let’s get down to business. I’ll see you boys in the ring.”
♫Real American♫ «< click to play) The TNA RAW Interim General Manager enters to an arena shattering ovation from the crowd. The fans cheer on Hulk as he poses and taunts on his way to ringside. ♫Wooooo!♫ «< click to play) Ric Flair enters next and the Impact SmackDown GM can’t even look at the TNA RAW one. Matt Morgan is first to make his entrance for Team TNA RAW and he looks confident as he raises his United States Title. Up next come the Latin American eXchange and the Impact SmackDown comms ask “How does it feel to have two guys representing your show that took out your original GM in the first place?!” King: “Cool it Tazz, you know, things were friendly under Bret. He and Flair could actually sit and watch matches together and make trades or whatever. Ever since Hulk took over as Interim, Flair’s seen him as a threat!” Tenay: “Hold your horses King, if there’s a threat then Flair would run and perhaps relinquish his duties, but he’s brought the fight to TNA RAW and you can’t handle it because you may be out of a job tonight!” Cole: “Mike Tenay please, let’s not make this about us.” As the entrances continue we notably see that Team Impact SmackDown all enter together under the ♫Entrance music of Sting♫ «< click to play). The Icon looks in great spirits and although he, Beer Money and Van Dam seem to be having fun toward the fans, Alberto Del-Rio lingers in the background. The comms remind us that Del-Rio has openly stated that he is not with his teammates. Nonetheless, the Nature Boy is hoping Del-Rio can contribute for a win for Team Blue here tonight.
Matt Morgan, LAX, Kurt Angle & Stone Cold Steve Austin [C] w/ Hulk Hogan vs. Sting [C], Rob Van Dam, Alberto Del-Rio & Beer Money w/ Gail Kim & Ric Flair – Hulk Hogan’s Team TNA RAW vs. Ric Flair’s Team Impact SmackDown. If Hulk’s team wins then Ric Flair relinquishes his duties, leaves the KWF and Hogan becomes General Manager of the entire company. If Ric’s team wins then Hulk Hogan and TNA RAW entirely disappear. The roster spills over to Friday nights and Impact SmackDown becomes the only show produced by the Keystone Wrestling Federation.
The bell rings and here we go. A big fight feel in the Garden, as there has been all night long and we begin with Rob Van Dam against Hernandez of the Latin American eXchange. RVD thumb-taunts before locking up and Hernandez is rough as he throws Van Dam to the canvas. The crowd are split, some cheer for TNA RAW others cheer for Impact SmackDown, but most cheer for the outstanding athletes that we have battling it out for their shows. Ric Flair looks anxious as Team Red get the better of the beginning of the match, LAX double teaming Van Dam well to get a couple of early near falls. Homicide and Hernandez tag in and out and we watch as Hernandez takes RVD up for a delayed suplex, but then we see Gail Kim climb the apron. Hulk Hogan complains. This distracts the referee and Beer Money are given the opportunity to come in and stop the suplex. They deck Hernandez to then double team with a slingshot into a DDT! “You guys are cheating! This is way out of line!” says King. RVD crawls over for a Tag and in comes Alberto Del-Rio. Meanwhile on the far side Stone Cold takes none of Gail’s distraction and he comes in himself to go at Del-Rio. The crowd go nuts as Stone Cold takes it to Del-Rio, flinging him against the ropes and then clobbering him down with a Lou Thesz Press! “Vintage Stone Cold!” yelps Cole as Gail drops off the apron. The match continues in outstanding Survivor Series fashion. All ten superstars want to do well for their teams, everyone has something to gain and everything to lose. Austin tags Kurt Angle who goes toe to toe with a legal Sting. The Olympic Gold Medalist mat-wrestles The Icon as the comms tell of how many times both these two legends have gone back and forth in House Shows (regular TNA television programming). Tenay: “Angle and Sting have often been at each others throats and Kurt’s always held a grudge because he’s never ever been able to defeat Sting fairly.” Tazz: “And he don’t look like he’s going to tonight!” The match goes on with Sting getting much the better of Kurt in the early rounds between them, but then Angle tags Matt Morgan and the seven-footer takes down the Stinger with a huge side-walk slam! The audience boo at the taking down of Sting, but then boo even further because as Sting goes to tag Alberto Del-Rio, the Mexican drops off the apron! “What?! Del-Rio what are you doing?!” yells Tazz as he stands next to his personal ring announcer and the two of them walk out! The fans boo like hell as Matt Morgan continues taking it to Sting. Rob Van Dam follows Del-Rio toward the ramp and Del-Rio yells and shouts at him, telling him that he’s not concerned by all this. Van Dam calls him a coward and then, just as RVD sets to go back to his corner, LAX are on him like dogs. They beat him down and we watch as Ric Flair goes into a bit of a panic. Beer Money set themselves in the direction of LAX and all hell breaks loose. Stone Cold Steve Austin makes eye contact with Del-Rio just before he steps behind the curtain and the Rattlesnake raises a middle finger to which the fans cheer. The referee tries to keep control, but can’t. Rob Van Dam flings himself off the ring apron to flip dive on both members of the Latin American eXchange.
Meanwhile we watch as Beer Money get back in the ring and double team Matt Morgan. They perform the DWI (Drinking While Investing) and then Sting gets over for the cover; gets One, gets Two and Three! Matt Morgan is out! The United States Champion is eliminated and by the looks of things, Alberto Del-Rio has walked out of this match. We’re down to Four on Four and the tensions rise as LAX go on to combine and eliminate Rob Van Dam. Homicide with a dirty low blow behind the referee’s back, as Hernandez follows up with an almighty Border Toss that folds Van Dam up like an accordion. Van Dam is pinned for Three by Hernandez, but then soon after we see Beer Money come in and it’s tag team warfare as LAX go toe to toe with Impact SmackDown’s TNA World Tag Team Champions! Hulk Hogan watches on while Ric Flair goes crazy happy at ringside because Beer Money eliminate LAX one right after the other. We’re three on two now, with just Kurt Angle and Stone Cold Steve Austin remaining for Team Red. There’s a pause as we see Austin chat with Kurt. Gail Kim cheers on Beer Money, but it seems that Team Red’s tactics are as follows; go gung ho and take it to the opposition! The Rattlesnake and the Olympic Gold Medalist go hell for leather at Beer Money. Gail Kim climbs the apron and goes top rope, but wait, Homicide and Hernandez are back on the scene! Hogan wonders what’s going on as Homicide jogs the tope rope as Hernandez grabs Gail and “BOOORDERR TOOSSS!” yelps Mike Tenay as King screams “AAAAHHHH!” and Gail Kim goes hurtling to the mat! Hulk Hogan shakes his head. “This isn’t what he wanted, this isn’t how Hulk wanted to win.” “Cole you’re a moron man, didn’t wanna win this way? So why pick LAX in the first place for Gods sakes, those guys are dangerous, they don’t care who they hurt.” Kurt Angle rolls up a distracted James Storm and that gets Three. Roode goes at Angle, but Austin pulls him away and *BAM* kick to the gut followed by “STUNNER!” yell all the comms as Kurt Angle crawls for a cover, but Sting pulls him away and they brawl. Stone Cold then covers and that gets Three. Ric Flair climbs the apron to yell at Stone Cold as medics are seen taking away Gail. Sting and Angle trade blows and the Stinger sends Kurt to the corner and then connects with a Stinger Splash! “Who’s freakin’ legal here Mike?!” “Tazz I don’t know, but Sting’s all we got left!” Stone Cold steps out onto the apron and holds his hand out for a tag, but Kurt Angle is adamant to defeat Sting. He performs his triple German suplex and then covers, Kurt gets One, Two – wow and a kick out. Here we go now, the final berth. Hulk Hogan makes a slow walk to the ring as Kurt Angle removes his shoulder straps. He sets for the ankle lock but “Sting with a roll-up! Sting with a roll-up!” cries Cole as Angle kicks his legs but to no avail! “Kurt’s eliminated! Kurt’s eliminated! It’s down to the two Captain’s Tazz!” Austin comes in ready to take it to Sting, but he telegraphs it and Sting counters “A DeathDrop? A DeathDrop?!” fears King but no, “Aaah ha ha!” he cries as Austin turns it around and *WHAM*, *BOOM* STUNNEEERRR! Stone Cold with the cover as Flair goes nuts at ringside! ‘ONE!’ ‘TWO!’ ‘THREE!’
Winners: Team TNA RAW.
“We wiinnn! We wiiinnn! Team Red winnnns!” cries King, but right after the bell, Austin’s music can’t even get going because Ric Flair is in there to low blow and then chop-block the Rattlesnake to the mat! Flair removes his belt and whacks Austin. He even kicks at Sting and drops a knee over his Captain’s face. Flair is irate as he then sets for the Figure Four Leg-Lock, but he hasn’t accounted for one thing. More to the point, one man; as Hulk Hogan climbs the stairs! The Hulkster gets in to face Ric Flair and remove the belt from his grasp! The crowd in Madison Square Garden raise the roof as Hulk points “Yooouuu!” toward Flair and the comms yell (Cole) “Hulk Hogan’s taken over as the GM of the entire KWF, Ric Flair you’re gone, you’re outta here ha haa!” (Tazz) “Cole shut up before I thump you man, having Flair outta the KWF sucks!” We then watch as Hogan goes against the ropes and we anticipate a big boot, but (Tenay) “Oh my God.” (Tazz) “What the?!” NO! HOGAN LEG-DROP! HULK HOGAN DROPS THE LEG OVER THE NECK OF STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN! “Aaaahh haa haa!” yells King as the fans are instantly stunned! “What the hell is going on here?!” yells Mike Tenay, Michael Cole and Tazz argue it out as King says “Look guys look! They’re huggiiiinnnngggg!” Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair embrace! The audience cannot believe it, they throw cups and food and all sorts of garbage toward the squared circle. None of the commentators can understand this, nobody knows what’s going on. Ric Flair, the dastardly GM of Impact SmackDown puts the Figure Four Leg-Lock on Sting. Hulk Hogan has a huge smile on his face. He takes a couple of extra kicks at Stone Cold before he is handed a microphone. He laughs before calling Flair off Sting. Hogan and Flair then kick-roll Stone Cold and Sting out from either side of the ring. Hogan states “That’s right, kicking out all the garbage.” Flair yells “WOOOO!” down Hulk’s mic as the fans boo like hell. Hogan addresses the audience and tells us “We had you all fooled ha ha ha! The KWF has changed forever you morons!” Flair “WOOOO!”’s again as Hogan says “Nature Boy, ha ha, we did it brother. We pulled the wool over all their eyes and we did it! There’s no more TNA RAW, and there’ll be no more Impact SmackDown either!” Flair grabs the mic. “For months! For months Hulk Hogan and I have planned this! The KWF is completely in our hands now. This is a dawning of a new era! Woooo! Woooo!” The crowd boo and we can even see some of the younger fans crying. We’re shown a shot of the announcers and it seems that their headset microphones have been turned off. Hulk Hogan finishes by telling us to “Take it all in over the next couple of days you bunch of goons. No TNA RAW tomorrow night, no Blue show on Friday’s. It’s our KWF now and we will resume this Wednesday for Wednesday Night Turmoil!” Hogan and Flair hug and raise each other’s arms as the fans, announcers and ringside KWF staff are all devastated. The KWF has certainly changed and now we’re set for Turmoil.
