♫Wednesday Night Turmoil’s opening video♫ «< click to watch) plays and we come Live into the EnergySolutions Arena right here in Salt Lake City. As always, Jim Ross and William Regal bring us in on commentary and they tell of the superb line-up of matches we have on show tonight. JR: “Mark Henry will take on Sheamus in a Hardcore match. We have Jack Evans, Daniel Bryan and Frankie Kazarian in an X-Division Triple Threat, and William, I’m sure you’ll be glad to tell our audience of our penultimate match of the night?” Regal: “Oh gladly Jim. Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve witnessed so much animosity and downright besmirchery of late from the faction that is known as the Latin American eXchange, and tonight the British Invasion finally put it to a stop. Edge has made the match; Brit leader Wade Barrett will go up against the dastardly chief of LAX, Alberto Del Rio. Our GM has made sure that any outside interference will result in a Disqualification and I for one cannot wait to see what Wade does with Del Rio. That aristo-whatsit cost Barrett the World Title, and a main event spot at Mania!”
JR goes on to tell us that as well as Hardcore Champ Sheamus, and X-Champ Jack Evans, we also have the KWF World Champ in action tonight: “And the Phenomenal One will go up against the founder of TNA, Double-J Jeff Jarrett. What a match that promises to be.” Regal: “Indeed Jim. Last week The Rock came out here and he asked to be in the main event match at Mania, putting forward the argument of wrestling’s generations and his view on how great it would be to have Mister WWF versus Mister TNA versus Mister Ring of Honor versus Mister WWE. God that’s a mouthful. But given that KWF’s coming to an end at Mania, Edge has set this match up for tonight – and that may mean he’s thinking about The Rock’s proposition, given that it’s AJ, the premier TNA superstar against the founder of the company.”
♫Music hits♫ «< click to play) and all eyes are on the stage as the tron rises and out come The Beautiful People. The majority of the audience boo their entrance, but the men especially cheer when they get to the ring and perform their tantalizing ‘let the pigeons loose’ entrance. Angelina proudly carries the Women’s Championship and Velvet Sky is first to get on the mic. They pause as they lap up the boos. With a sly grin on her face, Velvet says: “Salt Lake City, Utah. Hi guys. Hard are we? You know Angelina, I don’t suppose the men of this city have ever seen such beauty as ours. I mean, every woman I’ve seen here looks like a relative of someone from the land of Oz or something.” She holds the mic for Angelina. Love says: “Wizard of Oz? They’ve remade that?” Sky: “Yeah. Apparently it blows.” Love: “Mmm, just like Salt Lake.” Sky: “That’s right.” Angelina takes the mic, pausing as the crowd boo The BP’s sentiments.
Love says: “I’m not so sure Velvet. I mean, when we got here, you’re right, there wasn’t a woman in sight that could ever live up to our beauty. But then, I saw this stunning woman down at the mall as I looked into a shop window, then of course I realized it was just me! Haha ha. Of course I’m the hottest piece of ass to ever come here.” Velvet looks at her, Love responds: “We, I mean, we are the most Beautiful People to ever grace these lands. And ladies and gentlemen, that is why we are here tonight, to tell all of you, remind all of you, that we hold the Women’s Championship!”
The crowd boo as Love raises her Title. Velvet takes over on mic and she says that The Beautiful People have been the most consistent and most dominant unit in women’s wrestling here in the KWF. She says that she especially realizes that come WrestleMania, she may not ever be with Angelina in the ring again: “because certain employers of certain companies would rather a Brooke Tess-whatever or a Tara-my-name’s-really-Lisa take the torch and well, watch it burn out. Angelina and I are the sexiest wrestlers the business has ever been lucky enough to have and we’ve proved that over and over again in the Keystone Wrestling Federation!” Love takes over and she says that KWF has been the prime of TBP’s careers and she says that it’s fitting that the KWF Women’s Title dies with them as the company dies out too.
Love: “We don’t care about TNA. I don’t care about whoever decides to pick me up because this (the Title) is what I came here for! We accomplished it and there’s nothing anybody can do to take that away from us. Screw the KWF, screw all you ugly witches in the crowd and all you men that drool over us, well you can stare all you want but you will never see us again!” Just as Love and Sky continue their rant, ♫Edge’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and the crowd are on their feet, cheering at the top of their lungs for the KWF’s General Manager. Edge steps out of the smoke from under the tron and the crowd go wild. Regal: “Seems like Edge is in a good mood, better than he’s been the last couple of weeks anyway.” JR: “Oh I think he felt hurt and he was shocked that KWF was coming to an end. But now he looks like he’s embracing the inevitable and he’s certainly going to make sure we go out producing our very best.” The GM has a smile on his face as he goes down to the ring, bounces on the ropes in his old school manner, before snatching the mic from the Women’s Champion.
The fans calm down and Edge addresses The Beautiful People. He stares at them for a moment, looking them both up and down. He says: “Could we get a bed out here? I mean, a Live Sex Show would be a great way to go out. (He looks at the girls some more). What d’you think ladies? Big bang?” The crowd chuckle as Velvet tries to snatch the microphone back, but she can’t because Edge holds a tight grip. The crowd laugh as she then marches toward the corner and gets handed another mic. She shouts: “You know you got some nerve coming out here, on our time, in our ring. This is the moment we get to tell all the ugly nasty people in this world what we think of them and we get to rub our Belt in their faces!” Edge, toward the fans: “Ain’t she cute when she’s angry. Aww. Erm, can someone turn off her mic please?”
Velvet tries to bark some more, but her mic gets turned off and Edge then invites Velvet and Angelina toward the middle of the ring. He says that he has an announcement to make, but first, to make some wrestling history, he’d like to do a Five-Second pose with The Beautiful People. The crowd laugh as Edge poses, but Love and Sky don’t comply, and stand there with frowns on their faces. The GM has his fun and the audience love it, but then things get serious as he makes his announcement. He says that there have been a few things that have happened between the KWF Chicks in recent times and tonight, those things have led Edge to make a match. He says: “Not so long ago, Velvet, you were mad at Angelina because she let you take a paper-bagging and she didn’t help you out. As it turned out, Angelina apologized and you accepted, I think. Then, the two of you screwed over AJ Lee at SuperBrawl, just like you screwed Kaitlyn out of the chance to be in the Women’s Rumble match at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. And far be it for me to be unfair or overlook anyone, I have taken into account that Queen Madison Rayne defeated Mickie James last week on Turmoil as well.”
Angelina snatches the mic and she asks what Edge is getting at. She says that she and Velvet have done a hell of a job dominating the KWF Chicks and whatever Edge has in mind, whatever he has in store for them going into Mania, they’re ready, because as long as they’re on the same page, the Women’s Championship will always remain with The Beautiful People. Edge takes the mic back and says: “You know, it’s funny that you mention being on the same page, because that very notion might well get tested… right here tonight.” “What do you mean?!” shout both the girls. Edge announces that later tonight there will be a Fatal-4-Way match to determine the number one contender to the KWF Women’s Championship. It will be Queen Madison, versus AJ Lee, versus Kaitlyn… versus Velvet Sky!
Edge explains that all four Chicks in the match have a legitimate gripe with Angelina Love and all four women are certainly hungry for the KWF Women’s Championship. Angelina can’t believe what she’s hearing, but then right next to her, Velvet’s not exactly in a huff and a puff about the situation. Angelina turns her attention to Velvet and it seems like Sky may not be listening. ♫Edge’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and the crowd applaud as the GM cheekily grins before exiting the ring. Velvet seems to be responding to Love now. Regal: “Angelina is not very happy at all. Four women are gunning for her and one of them is her fellow Beautiful Person! What’s Edge doing Jim? This is a disaster.” JR: “Oh quite the contrary William. Madison, AJ, Kaitlyn and Velvet all have the equal opportunity to meet Angelina at Mania and I especially agree with how Edge has handled this. AJ was screwed over and humiliated at SuperBrawl, of course she deserves another chance. Kaitlyn’s come back after a BP attack, she’s on good form after defeating Maryse and she deserves another chance too. Even Queen Madison, after defeating Mickie James, has earned herself this opportunity. Wow, well all I can say is that it’s going to be a pulse-racing encounter later tonight. Four of KWF’s finest women battling for the chance to go to the Ball! I can’t wait!” Regal: “Ball? What Ball? There’s no Ball…” JR: “I meant Mania William.” We go to commercial.
When we come back, ♫the music of Daniel Bryan♫ «< click to play) hits. Regal: “Here comes the fans’ favorite beard, along with the man it’s connected to.” Bryan gets a great reception, as opposed to Frankie Kazarian who follows. The fans boo as Kaz dismisses them. JR reminds us that Kaz recently teamed up with Christopher Daniels to try and become Tag Team Champions: “Kazarian was out for quite some time after putting his hands on Kelly Kelly. Don’t nobody touch a Cajun’s girl it seems.” Regal: “Haha, listen to you trying to be all New Orleanish Jim.” The comms discuss, that while Kaz and Daniels were in for Tag Gold, now they have no choice but to revert back to singles competition because the Tag Team Championship match for KWF WrestleMania has already been taken care of. As Bryan and Kaz eyeball one another in the ring, all eyes are on the stage as the tron rises and ♫music♫ «< click to play) hits. X-Division Champion Jack Evans emerges and the audience cheer at the top of their lungs as we get set for exhilarating Triple Threat X-Div action.
Daniel Bryan vs. Kazarian vs. Jack Evans
As the bell rings, Kazarian immediately tries to talk Bryan into teaming up on Evans. Bryan isn’t sure, and Evans is tentative. Bryan eventually agrees, and they approach the Champ. Just as Kaz goes to grab him, Bryan kicks Kaz in the head, knocking him out cold. This allows Evans and Bryan to go at it, with Evans immediately getting the advantage by coming off the ropes to hit a corkscrew clothesline. He covers but barely gets Two. Bryan gets back into it by hitting Evans with kicks to the torso and back, but as he goes for a final one to the head, Evans ducks it, before leaping a leg sweep attempt and hitting a standing dropkick. Both men are down, but see that Kazarian is getting up again, and so they get to their feet and double clothesline him over the top rope. The fans cheer as both then come off the far ropes in unison ready to suicide dive, but Bryan screeches to a halt, leaving only Evans to fly on top of Kaz. Bryan then climbs to the top rope and flies off to land on both his opponents. The fans chant for the KWF as we head into commercial.
When we come back, Bryan has Kaz in a submission hold in the center of the ring. We see on split-screen that Bryan threw Evans into the barrier to take him out during the break, and is now trying to clinch a huge momentum shifting win by trying to make Kaz tap. He wrenches back on Kaz’s arm, but the move gets turned over and Bryan’s shoulders are pinned to the mat, forcing him to let go and kick out. Kazarian is able to get some offense in now, and floors Bryan with a snap suplex, before coming off the middle rope for a springboard legdrop. He covers, gets One, gets Two – but a kick-out by Bryan. He picks Bryan up, but is soon felled again by Evans, who comes flying off the top rope to hit a missile dropkick. However, as Evans gets up, Bryan grabs him and applies the LeBell Lock. Now the Champ is struggling, and cannot reach the ropes. Bryan urges him to tap out, and Evans looks set to do so in order to live to fight another day. However, Kaz is able to get across and low dropkick Bryan, breaking the hold. Kaz then picks up Evans and looks set to end things with a Wave of the Future, but Evans turns it around and hits a neckbreaker. Bryan then runs at him and he ducks, pulling the rope down. The Bearded One flies to the outside, giving Evans the time to leap up to the top rope, raise his arms and come crashing down on Kaz with the 630 Senton Splash! He hooks both legs and gets One, Two and Three.
Winner: Jack Evans.
The fans go wild as the X-Division Champion wins an enthralling encounter. He has his hand raised as JR praises all three men: “I just love the X-Division, especially when you have such diverse but equally talented guys thrown in there, all working off each other. Kudos to Jack Evans on a big win, but I do wonder William, who’s Evans going to face at WrestleMania?” Regal: “Could be anyone and we’d be guaranteed a terrific match. I don’t think much of the lad personally, but professionally he’s on top of his game and that’s where you want to be right now. There’s no stopping him in this mode.”
We come to a video recapping the events of last week’s edition of Wednesday Night Turmoil. The Rock returned to the KWF after almost a year out making movies and he made it known that he wanted to be a part of the main event World Title match at WrestleMania. He put forward the argument of ‘Generations’, generations of the fans and their favorite wrestlers here in the KWF. He mentioned that John Cena is the WWE Generation. AJ Styles TNA. CM Punk Ring of Honor and he himself represented WWF, the Attitude Era. He spoke directly from the ring and addressed Edge up in his Skybox, strongly suggesting that if Edge put him in the match at Mania then this certainly would be KWF’s last and greatest spectacle. Also on the night, we saw Brodus Clay versus King Dolph, a shocking re-appearance by Matt Morgan and a classic as Doctor of Thuganomics John Cena, the much-hated Cena, go one on one with the Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle! The Hardcore Title match was set for Mania and in the main event, we witnessed a match some thought we’d never see as The Lord of Darkness The UnderTaker teamed with his brother Kane, and they took on the enigma that is Joker Hardy and Gambit of Why So Serious. Do not miss the show, if you haven’t already read. Click HERE now and take in one of the most electrifying Turmoil’s of all time.
We come back Live to ringside where JR and Regal are discussing whether or not The Rock should be entered into the main event match at KWF WrestleMania. They speak of Why So Serious and the TLC Mania three-way Tag that was announced last week and they mention how glad they both are to be able to witness what shall be a grueling test of endurance, guts and heart as Sheamus, Samoa Joe and Rob Van Dam will battle it out to be crowned the last ever Hardcore Champ on the grandest stage of them all. Regal: “And we get to see Sheamus in Hardcore action next. But Jim…” The screen crisps and we fade from JR and Regal into a dark video. We see a shadow of a figure sat in total darkness and as he begins to speak we can hear that this is the voice of The UnderTaker. The Deadman’s face can’t be seen, but he lays out a cryptic message stating that he has seen the deep darkness of his creation, The Absolute Lashley. He laughs, evilly and he says that he is proud of what he did to the man once known as Bobby: “I chose you Bobby Lashley. I took you out of your mediocre self-righteousness and I made sure that you knew everything there was to know of the darkness of my heart. You were victim of a new dawn, you were the one I chose to sit upon my throne. The new Master, the new Deadman. But as the saying goes, Lashley, I have taught you everything you know. But I have not taught you everything that I know. You may be my greatest creation and through your power I saw what might you had last week. But at WrestleMania (he shouts) My Yard!… Absolute Lashley, you will Rest In Peace….”
Back to JR and Regal again, and they look flabber-ghasted at what they’ve seen and heard from The UnderTaker. Regal: “Given that he was sucked into the depths of hell at the end of last week’s program, I think he’s surprisingly in a good mood.” JR: “Aww William, we’ve seen this from UnderTaker for many years. It’s all about the mind game with him and in the past it’s been clear that a man can go into battle with Taker and have the match already half lost because that person is so intimidated by the Deadman.” Regal: “But Jim, given how we didn’t see Taker’s face there, and given how it is well documented how Lashley wears a mask because of the scars of torture that Taker gave him, during you know, his ‘apprenticeship’, surely this must play into Lashley’s mind now. Lashley must be concerned that Taker has spoken so soon. And as the mind game goes, surely he must be worried that whatever he did to Taker last week has had little to no effect on The Deadman’s confidence.” JR: “Oh I’m not so sure. I certainly agree that The UnderTaker is holding a strong ground here, but he’s put out this message rather quickly in my view. No, for once I think the mind games don’t have an affect – and that’s because I feel this is a front from The UnderTaker.” Regal: “What are you saying Jim? That you don’t believe that Taker buys into his own words?” JR: “I’m saying that Taker’s words are more to convince himself he is capable of defeating Lashley. I think the mind game is for his own benefit, not to intimidate Lashley, but to re-establish his own presence and as you mentioned, confidence, on the Road to WrestleMania. The Absolute One, well, I don’t know what to expect at Mania, but neither does The UnderTaker.” Regal: “Interesting.”
♫Mark Henry’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and the comms turn their attention to this upcoming match. They go to a quick video recap about how Samoa Joe and Rob Van Dam laid out WrestleMania challenges to Sheamus last week on Turmoil. JR: “Sheamus is a fighting Irishman, he loves the competition and he was more than welcoming of Joe and Van Dam’s challenge. He accepted a Triple Threat on the spot!” Regal: “Which could be his downfall Jim. Joe’s one of KWF’s toughest Hardcore competitors and he has the experience of overcoming RVD and Mark Henry at Mania last year. But of course when we talk experience, there’s few more experienced at this level than the Whole F’n Show. I think it’s a mistake that Sheamus has accepted this match versus Henry. The Silverback will be out to prove a point.” ♫Sheamus’ music♫ «< click to play) hits and he enters to a great reception from his fans.
Mark Henry vs. Sheamus – Hardcore match
Henry stands menacingly in the ring and he waits for Sheamus to remove his t-shirt before going at the Hardcore Champ and attacking right away. He backs Sheamus into the corner, slams him with heavy right hands, but Sheamus fights back and he shows amazing strength as he backs Henry toward the ropes and then short-clotheslines him over and Henry rolls all the way to ringside. The crowd cheer as Sheamus roars before following out. He goes toward his opponent, but Henry’s reached under the apron for a tool box and he bashes it in Sheamus’ gut as he approaches. Regal: “Why do our ring crew always leave their gear down there?”
The crowd boo as Henry opens the box and he pours the contents over Sheamus’ head. He then picks up a wrench and he eyeballs his opponent as he gets up by the ring-post. Henry storms toward him with the wrench, but thankfully Sheamus ducks and Henry smashes the post with the metal. He turns back toward Sheamus who runs toward him with a clothesline – but Henry’s not taken down. He stands his ground and roars at the Celtic Warrior, but Sheamus then runs toward him again. Henry swings the wrench, but Sheamus ducks. He goes behind Henry and manages to ground him with a Russian Legsweep – with the back of Henry’s head hitting the tool box! ‘Ohhh’ gasp the crowd as Sheamus gets to his feet, pounds his chest and spreads his arms to yell “Fellaaaaa!” as we head to commercials.
When we come back the fans are rumbling as the two combatants are back in the ring and we can see a scene full of various blood puddles on the canvas. JR explains that the majority of the blood is from the back of Henry’s head, however, Sheamus is bleeding too after taking an arena-echoing chair shot during the commercial break. Both men are on dream street here as they battle, trading blows back and forth. Sheamus manages to back Henry toward the ropes. He sets for an Irish-whip, but Henry reverses and when Sheamus comes back he ducks under to lift the Irishman for a huge back body drop! The crowd gasp as JR points out that Sheamus hasn’t been man-handled like this since his battles with the Big Show. Henry is all fired up, looking focused as he sets to attain a huge scalp here.
He places the steel chair in the centre of the ring. He picks Sheamus up and the comms suggest a World’s Strongest Slam is coming – but as Henry lifts, Sheamus uses his weight to shuffle out of his grasp. But Henry head-butts him as he drops to the canvas. He picks up the chair and sets for one more swing at Sheamus, trying to decapitate him before Mania – but “Ohhh my God!” yells JR as Henry aims for Sheamus with the chair – but Sheamus gets his leg up to smash the chair back in Henry’s face for a Brogue Kick! A huge Brogue Kick that Henry simply did not anticipate and now Sheamus covers and the crowd count along with the referee ‘One!’ ‘Two!’ ‘Three!’
JR: “Aww what a match! An amazing intense contest and William, I think this was the perfect test, a great way to prepare for WrestleMania for Sheamus.” Regal: “Yes well that’s probably what he had in mind, but lets not forget that Henry has done plenty of damage to the Hardcore Champ here. Sheamus may be happy and excited with his victory, but he’s going to have to see a medic, hit the gym and be ready for the grand stage. Mister Van Dam and one Samoa Joe will have watched this match. They’ll be ready for that surprise Brogue Kick I’m sure.” Sheamus raises his Hardcore Championship and the fans chant his name as ♫his music♫ «< click to play) plays the scene out.
We go backstage where we join KWF interviewer Jeremy Borash: “Ladies and gentlemen please welcome my guests at this time, your new KWF World Tag Team Champions, Bobby Roode and the Cowboy James Storm.” Roode and Storm step onto the picture. Roode has a suit on while Storm is in his Beer Money t-shirt and cowboy hat. They have their Belts on their shoulders and in front of them steps their sharply dressed valet Gail Kim. JB asks them how they feel knowing that KWF’s coming to an end and what their take is on the fact that their last ever KWF match will be at WrestleMania, defending their Gold in a TLC match.
Bobby Roode says: “JB there’s a reason why things happen in life and luckily for us, we were able to front our hospital bills, heal up, get fit in time for the Road to WrestleMania and we came back at SuperBrawl to take back our Tag Team Titles. But the thing about wrestling is that it’s a cut-throat business, and that’s precisely why Gail and I are in our monkey-suits today.” Gail explains: “Since these guys were out for a year, I rarely had a chance to make it in Women’s wrestling. Not because I wasn’t good enough, but because of the likes of The Bellas, The Beautiful People, The Chickbusters and oh yeah, the Why So Serious girls. But if you don’t have someone watching your back, then you will drown – especially in a company the size of the KWF.” James Storm chimes in: “Ya see JB it goes like this. With KWF ending we know we’re gonna have to play the politics game when it comes to dealing with any employment with WWE or TNA. Hence Roode and Gail are so sharply dressed, because they know what impressions they want to make on the hiring parties. Me, I’m old school. I’ll drink beer and kick ass, but that’s about it. But putting all that aside, don’t dare nobody think that we ain’t prepared and we ain’t focused on what’s to come at WrestleMania. Bobby Roode here has the money, plenty of it, enough to make sure that the three of us are okay no matter what happens. Gail’s got the brains. She’s the one who had our back against the Welsh Dragons in our comeback number one contenders match and she’s the one who’ll tactically make sure that Roode and I know exactly what we’re doing come WrestleMania. See this ain’t gon’ be just a TLC match. We know that those damn Dudleys are experts with Tables and we sure as hell realize that when we’re dealing with Why So Serious, them girls and that Monster Abyss will probably be part of proceedings too. But we’re gonna get that Gold JB. We ain’t no fans of how they got to our shoulders because of The Dudleys, but come Mania, we’re winning that TLC match again and we’ll be the last and the greatest Tag Team the KWF’s ever seen.”
Two figures come onto the scene from the other side of Borash and we see Bubba-Ray and Devon Dudley. Bubba is clapping slowly and sarcastically. He says: “Of all the moronic statements that Champions say, you two and your Asian hooker right here ain’t got a clue what’s coming for you at Mania.” Devon chimes in: “Haha, that’s right. Cause you see Beer Money, you can look at tapes and you can investigate tactical methods of trying to win a TLC match all you want. And granted, you won the first TLC match we met in, back in 2010. But this here, this is our WrestleMania.” Bubba shouts: “We’ve taken you out before and we’ll do it again. Why So Serious are a circus, a freak show that we’ll plough through and we will climb those stinkin’ Ladders to get the job done. We had a year in charge after taking you out and we’re ending it at Mania. No arguments and no questions about it. My brother and I are the greatest, most consistent and most decorated Tag Team in Professional Wrestling history. We’re taking what’s ours at Mania and boys, there’s nothin’ you or Why So Serious can do about it.” The two teams get heated, but we soon see security on the scene. The Dudleys and Beer Money are split up before any punches can be thrown. JB finishes: “Wow. Looks like Edge was watching this and thank God he got some help over here. The situation around the Tag Titles is intense. Stay tuned to KWF Blogs on the Road to WrestleMania.”
We see British Invasion member Drew McIntyre in the parking lot, having just arrived. He takes his bag out of the trunk of his car and makes his way toward the Talent Entry door. However, as he walks through the parking lot, we hear the screeching of wheels. He looks around and sees that LAX’s min-van is heading straight for him. He dives out of the way just in time, but the van screeches to a halt. The door opens and LAX pile out, grabbing McIntyre and hitting him with kicks and punches. The Scotsman struggles, but cannot fight them off and is bundled into the back of the van. We can see Homicide laying the boot into him as Hernandez slams the door shut. We come back into the arena, and both JR and Regal are outraged. Regal: “Get someone out there quick! Help him!” JR: “More despicable behavior from LAX, just when is the madness going to end?!”
We hear ♫the music of former KWF Women’s Champion AJ Lee♫ «< click to play) and the spunky fireball skips her way to the ring. JR and Regal soon move on from the events of the parking lot and look forward to the upcoming Chick match to determine the Women’s Title bout for WrestleMania. JR: “Who will be the final ever KWF Women’s Champion? AJ, Madison, Kaitlyn, Velvet or Angelina?” Regal: “It’ll be Angelina I’m sure, but I’m still fascinated to see whom she faces. Just as long as it’s not Velvet. I’d hate to think what that would do to The Beautiful People.” JR: “Well they haven’t exactly been seeing eye-to-eye of late, and let’s not forget that the other three ladies all have beef with Angelina for one reason or another. This should prove to be an enthralling contest!”
AJ Lee vs. Queen Madison vs. Kaitlyn vs. Velvet Sky – number one contenders match for the Women’s Title
The bell rings and all four women look at one another. Even AJ and Kaitlyn are unsure as to whether the other is ready to attack. In the end the tension gets too much for Madison and she races at AJ, only to get a swift Savate kick to the face. ‘Ohhh’ gasp the crowd. Velvet then rushes at Kaitlyn, but gets back-body dropped over the top rope and to the outside. We see that Angelina Love has come out to the stage with her Title Belt to observe. JR: “Oh good, she’s here. You can guarantee she’ll interfere somehow.” Regal: “I’m not so sure Jim. She probably doesn’t want to face any of these four, as Velvet has made it perfectly clear she wants the Title as much as anyone, so I think this may just be a scouting mission.” We are left with AJ and Kaitlyn standing tall, and the crowd clap them on, urging them to go at it. They look out and smile, acknowledging the audience, before looking to each other, nodding, doing their Chickbuster fist-bump, and then a collar and elbow tie up ensues. Kaitlyn powers AJ into the corner, but as she lets go, Lee springs off the middle rope and leaps over her into a sunset flip, getting a Two-count. They both get up and AJ smiles at her BFF, but Kaitlyn just gives a relieved puff out of her cheeks as we head to commercial.
When we return, Madison has gotten back to her feet and is punishing AJ in the corner for the earlier kick to the face, while Velvet is also getting revenge, working over Kaitlyn on the outside. JR: “One of these women is going to WrestleMania to face Angelina Love for the Women’s Championship. So much on the line here, and you can see what it means to all four gals.” Regal: “Of course Jim, this is KWF WrestleMania we’re talking about here. It’s going to be the biggest pay-per-view of all time and not just that, but Women’s Wrestling clearly takes a high priority in this company. It always has and while we may not be being privy to a Live Sex show, haha, we’re bloody close with these four Chicks. Ahem, but all jokes aside, KWF Chicks are all fine wrestler’s and they certainly deserve as much spotlight as any male in the industry.”
As Kaitlyn is fired into the steel steps by Velvet, the Beautiful Person looks up to Love on the stage, and motions the Belt sign around her waist, before laying kicks into her Texan opponent. JR: “Wow, big statement there. Intent shown by Velvet. It’s not often that we see a public show of disagreement between The Beautiful People.” Meanwhile Madison hits a DDT on AJ and covers, but Velvet slides in to make the save. JR reminds us that Madison is a former BP member herself back in TNA, but was shunned when she tried to rejoin Love and Sky in the KWF. “She got her revenge as she plotted a way to not only become Women’s Champion back at KWF Bound For Glory in October, but also to oust Love and Sky as Dolph Ziggler’s Queens, along with Kaitlyn, and replace them as the one and only Queen of the KWF.” Regal: “Good point Jim. There’s definitely some unfinished business there. While Kaitlyn was grateful for her release from Dolph’s Kingdom, Angelina and Velvet were not and I’d bet Love would be eager to get her hands on Rayne at WrestleMania.”
As we are reminded of this, Madison starts pounding on Velvet, slamming her head repeatedly into the canvas. She crawls around on Velvet’s body, seductively turning her over and placing her kness around Sky’s neck. She puts out a Royal Wave to the audience before lifting Velvet’s head between her knees and slamming her face-first over and over again into the canvas. Regal: “Oh dear. That may require a makeover.” She gets up, perhaps ready to look for her finisher – but out of nowhere the Queen’s hit by an almighty Spear from Kaitlyn! The crowd go wild as she covers and gets One, Two and… no! AJ breaks it up. Kaitlyn can’t believe it, she was so close. She turns to realize that AJ broke up the cover and now the Chickbusters exchange words. They don’t mess around, going at it once more. Kaitlyn tries to throw AJ to the outside, but she lands on the apron, before sliding in through Kaitlyn’s legs. However, when she turns around, she is picked up and downed with a huge gorilla press slam. The crowd are wowed, with Kaitlyn showing peak form here, but Velvet soon rolls Kaitlyn up from behind, getting a very close Two count. JR: “A School-Girl Roll Up of Doom from Velvet Sky of all people.” Regal: “Get serious Jim, there’s no doom about it!”
As the match goes on, Regal recalls Kaitlyn’s tribulations with The Beautiful People, as, despite winning the Women’s Title, was practically Cinderella to the Beautiful Sisters and King Dolph, who had ‘won’ her from Panther in a match at Sovereignty last year. However, the Black Cat reluctantly joined Madison in her plot so as to free Kaitlyn from the Kingdom, despite it costing her a Women’s Championship that she felt she had never earned in the first place. Ironically, her and Madison are now brawling, and have fallen to the outside of the ring. Kaitlyn gets up, sees Madison crawling and she licks her hand before spanking the Queen right on her rear-end. The crowd gasp at the echoing slap. Meanwhile, AJ is up and has hit a series of clotheslines on Velvet. She is on fire as she seeks a place at WrestleMania and attempts to win back the Title she controversially lost to Angelina Love at the Royal Rumble. JR: “The numbers game reared its ugly head again at SuperBrawl to deny her in her rematch, but she has a terrific chance to go third time lucky at WrestleMania.”
AJ is impressive as she nails a hurracanrana and covers, but Velvet kicks out after Two. We see that Angelina is still stood on the stage, and hasn’t moved down the ramp at all. JR: “She really isn’t interfering. What a shocker.” AJ and Velvet continue to go back and forth, getting near falls on one another, and at after a swinging neckbreaker, Velvet uses the ropes for leverage, but Madison pushes her feet off, breaking the count. Sky leans through the ropes and yells at the Queen Bee, but gets a smack around the face for her trouble. Madison slides back in, and picks up AJ, ready to go for the Rayne Drop, but she gets booted in the head and grabbed by Velvet, who also holds onto AJ. She’s going to go for a double DDT, but her eyes widen as Kaitlyn gets in the ring. Velvet is forced to let go of both Madison and AJ, but doesn’t have time to react to the huge Spear from Kaitlyn! She covers and hooks the leg, getting One, Two and Three!
Kaitlyn is almost in tears as she has her hand raised, and is declared the new number one contender for the KWF Women’s Championship. JR: “She did it! Kaitlyn is going to WrestleMania!” Regal: “Well done that lass. She took a hell of a beating in there, but she never gave up and what an impactful Spear. I bet Velvet Sky hasn’t been speared like that since…” JR: “Careful William.” Kaitlyn is celebrating on the turnbuckles, but sees that AJ has recovered and is up to her feet. She looks disconsolate, angry at herself for not winning. Kaitlyn isn’t sure what to do or say. JR: “She’s understandably upset that she won’t have her chance at Love, but come on AJ, at least your best friend, your fellow Chickbuster is going to the Grand Show.” AJ goes to turn away, but then quickly turns around again and wraps her arms around Kaitlyn, giving her a huge hug. Kaitlyn reciprocates and the fans cheer. Angelina Love is on the stage rolling her eyes and motioning putting her finger down her throat. Both AJ and Kaitlyn look up at Love, who raises her Title in the air. AJ pats Kaitlyn on the stomach, and warns Angelina that her Title will soon belong to the Hybrid-Chick of the KWF. JR: “There you have it, another match confirmed. At WrestleMania it will be Angelina Love versus Kaitlyn for the KWF Women’s Championship!” Regal: “Fantastic. How fitting it is Jim that such a rivalry can come to a head. After all The BP had to endure with Kaitlyn as Queen, Angelina can finally get her some vengeance.” JR: “God you put a devilish spin on things.”
We come to a video package in a small library of some sort. We see that someone is sitting in a chair reading up on a book called ‘Great Kings of History’. As the camera pans out, it reveals that the man sitting in the chair is Panther. He has a monocle in his eye and a pipe in his mouth. He notices the camera and removes the pipe and monocle. “Ah hello there, didn’t see you come in. I’ve just been here in this library reading up on some of the greatest Kings that ever lived. There was King Arthur of course, King James the second, King Henry the Eighth, King Kong, Jerry The King Lawler, Billie Jean King, King Kong Bundy, the Macho King Randy Savage… and let’s not forget of course… the Burger King. But there is one King who has done nothing but let down his people, and put shame to the crown on his head by being… how should I put this?… a bit of a dick. Yes, Ziggles, or King Dolph Ziggler as you all know him, has struggled to live up to the mantle of his Title, and has actually resorted to hiring the lovechild of Bill Goldberg and Chyna to protect him from the big bad meanies of the KWF. Well guess what Ziggles… I’m a big bad meanie. In fact, I’m a predator, a hunter, an alpha male, a God damn Thundercat! And next week right here on Turmoil, I’m coming for Ryback. But don’t worry Your Highness, because once I’m done with him… I’m coming for you and that Crown. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to get back to my book.” He puts the monocle back on and pipe in his mouth and gets back to reading, until the door bursts open and a random angry man yells “What the hell are you doing in my house?!” Panther lets out a cat-like hiss and escapes through the window.
Matt Morgan vs. Kofi Kingston
We come back to ringside where we see that Kofi Kingston and Matt Morgan are about ready for action. The bell rings and the match gets underway with Regal stating: “Wow, Matt Morgan looks in great shape. Do we know anything yet about how or why he’s back in the KWF Jim?” JR: “Well JB’s on the case to find out more, but what we can tell so far is that Morgan’s putting forward an answer to the challenge laid out by Randy Orton two weeks ago. Remember folks, Orton’s the Intercontinental Champion and he’s said that he wants the best possible competition at WrestleMania when he’ll put his Gold on the line. Former IC Champ D’Angelo Dinero returned to the KWF after a long injury lay-off and he said that he’ll challenge Orton – but then Randy RKO’d him, not giving Pope an answer. Then Dinero competed and won a match against Cody Rhodes just last week, and that’s when Matt Morgan came back, entering through the audience and taking Pope’s head off with a Carbon Footprint. It’s not been the best of comebacks from Dinero, but I know for sure that he’s still champing at the bit to get at Orton and the Intercontinental Title. Matt Morgan it seems has other ideas.”
The match at hand goes back and forth and we can see some rustiness on Morgan’s part as Kofi tries to pick up what would be an impressive victory. The comms remind us that Morgan was unlucky back at KWF Casino Warfare where he attained a Feast or Fired briefcase only to open it and be the one on the end of a firing. Regal: “Obviously he’s been signed back to the KWF now, but I wonder if he’ll have a part to play at WrestleMania?” Kingston performs the Boom Drop and the crowd cheer as he gets set for Trouble In Paradise. However, as Morgan gets up, Kofi can’t hit the move because Morgan catches him in mid-air. Kingston struggles as Morgan plants him on his feet, but then in an impressive show of strength, Morgan lifts him in one motion, stalls on a suplex and then drops Kofi with the Hellavator! He hooks the leg for One, Two and Three.
Winner: Matt Morgan.
♫The Blueprint’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and he flexes as he roars toward the crowd. He barks “Get off me!” to the referee as he refuses to have his hand raised and the fans boo as he climbs the turnbuckles. Regal: “Well I’m quite surprised Jim. That ring-rust wore off awful quickly.” JR: “Matt Morgan’s no ordinary wrestler William. He’s disliked by most because of his attitude and the way he goes about things, but let me tell you, we don’t call him the Blueprint for nothing. He’s a seven-foot wrecking machine and whatever ring-rust he had, he shook it off and he conquered Kofi right here. Indeed this was one Hellavator of a comeback performance.” Just as Morgan climbs down from the buckles Regal yelps: “Look Jim look!” as a slithery superstar slides into the ring. He targets his prey and KWF’s Apex Predator Randy Orton floors Matt Morgan, taking him down to the canvas with an RKO! A huge move, receiving loud cheers and appreciation from the crowd. They go nuts as Orton stands over Morgan’s fallen body and ♫his music♫ «< click to play) blares out the arena speakers. JR and Regal can’t believe it as they review replays of the RKO and the scene ends with the spotlight very much on Intercontinental Champion Randy Orton.
Back from commercials, ♫Kurt Angle’s music♫ «< click to play) and the Olympic Gold Medalist rises onto the stage in his trademark manner. The crowd cheer and chant his name as he makes a point to show off his ‘Save Olympic Wrestling’ t-shirt. The comms wonder what Kurt has on his mind as they go split-screen to remind us that Angle lost in an epic battle with John Cena on last week’s Turmoil. Regal: “Cena was in magnificent form and the Rumble winner sure as hell looked ready for WrestleMania.” JR: “There’s no arguing that William, but remember, Brock Lesnar was at ringside watching the match and he especially kept a close eye on Angle. This distracted Angle I think.” Angle is handed a microphone and he waits for the audience to calm.
He says that he finds it a harsh reality that KWF’s coming to an end: “It’s news that I didn’t want to hear after what we’ve all learned about the fate of Olympic Wrestling. But right now, eras coming to an end aren’t at the forefront of my mind. What’s been bugging me, is you Brock Lesnar.” The audience listen intently as Angle asks Brock to come out and explain exactly what he was doing at ringside during Kurt’s match with Cena last week. Brock duly obliges and he answers. ♫His music♫ «< click to play) hits and the comms talk of his intimidating presence as he marches down to the ring. He grabs a microphone and he has a cocky smirk on his face. Angle frowns: “So come on, tell me. You watched me lose to Cena. You got in the ring. Then you just stood there! Why?! Tell me Brock, what the hell were you doing?!”
Lesnar smiles and shakes his head. He says: “Angle, what I was doing was watching exactly why Olympic Wrestling is coming to an end.” Angle angers some more. Brock goes on: “For everything you did, everything you accomplished, Kurt, even I knew that you were the best wrestler that America had to offer. Hell, you broke down the world. You overcame a broken neck and still you won. That took courage. That was very brave and you certainly were the very best wrestler in the world.” Angle barks: “Were? Were, was, were?! What are you saying Brock? You’re trying to bring me down, is that it?” Lesnar: “Oh no Kurt. That’s actually the reason I came to watch you last week and it’s also a reason why I didn’t F5 you after the match. Kurt, honestly… I feel sorry for you. The great Kurt Angle. There’s been no better Olympic wrestler since you and you know, it’s just sad that over the years in this industry, through WWE, TNA and now here in the KWF, ever since you and I faced off at WrestleMania 19 Kurt, you’ve been in decline.”
Angle is seething. The crowd boo Lesnar’s words, but he says that Kurt Angle was the very best once upon a time, but that was a story that was long ago: “You were in your prime at the Olympics and you stepped up a level at WrestleMania 19. But come on Kurt, admit it. After losing to me, the Next Big Thing at the time, what exactly have you accomplished? I mean, I’ve been the Ultimate Fighting Champion. I’ve dominated and destroyed everyone and everything in my path and Kurt Angle, the great Kurt Angle. Now… you’re nothing Kurt. You’re no longer a household name and as far as being an Olympic Gold Medalist goes, well, Olympic Wrestling doesn’t really count anymore does it?”
Angle can’t believe what Brock’s saying and he takes exception to what he says about Olympic Wrestling. Angle says that Brock didn’t F5 him last week because he knew that if he tried it then Lesnar would’ve been on his stomach in moments because Angle would have snapped on an Ankle Lock. Brock laughs. He says that Angle’s not that fast anymore and more to the point, Angle didn’t beat CM Punk last year in two attempts. He didn’t win the Royal Rumble. He didn’t win the Elimination Chamber and “last week Kurt, you lost to John Cena. Face it old man, you’re done. You might as well call it a day. Retire while you still got some dignity. You’ve got no chance in going out in a blaze of glory, so stop embarrassing yourself. Quit. Get outta here while people can still recognize who you were.”
Angle barks: “That’s what you think Brock? That’s what you think, that you’re feeling pity over me and you’re saying that you didn’t F5 me last week because you felt sorry for me?! Well I’ll tell you what, kid, how about this old man goes out in the very blaze of glory that you mention. KWF’s coming to an end because no one in the industry has the sense to hire our writers, but Olympic Wrestling, oh I’m gonna save it and I’m gonna use you as an example Brock. What do you say? A rematch of WrestleMania 19, on March 31st at KWF WrestleMania!?? Me and you on the grand stage one more time and I’ll tell you this Brock, I may have lost more than I’ve won recently – but you lost to AJ Styles! And youlost the Elimination Chamber! You and I are on the same level, but you’re telling me I’m past it? You dare tell me that I can’t cut it anymore?! Well we’ll see about that!” Lesnar smirks: “Alright Kurt. I accept your challenge, but there better well be paramedics ready to deal with you afterward. See Kurt when I’m in the ring I naturally have a hunger to hurt people. As much as you desire this WrestleMania ‘wrestling’ match, I’m going to take this challenge and see it as an opportunity to end you once and for all. The Ultimate Fighter takes out the Olympic Wrestler. That’ll be the headline and Kurt, a saying goes that you better be careful what you wish for. At Mania, you’re finished.”
Angle shakes his head, defiant against Brock’s words, but then Lesnar sets to go for him, but he stops in his tracks. Angle gets into a wrestling stance, but Brock smirks and backs up. He tells Angle that because he already feels sorry for him, he’ll lay off him until their big match at Mania. Angle barks at Lesnar, daring him to hit him and get Mania started early. But instead, Lesnar pats Angle on the shoulder. He says: “There there Kurt. Relax. I won’t hurt you. Not tonight. In fact, go home, see your family. Spend time with your kids. I won’t touch you until Mania okay Kurt? Enjoy life in the meantime. WrestleMania will be your execution.” ♫Lesnar’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and the fans boo like hell as Angle is left standing alone. The comms can’t believe what Brock Lesnar’s had to say. Regal: “But he makes a lot of good points Jim. Truth hurts right?” JR: “Aww come on. It’s all about context and Angle’s right, it’s not like Lesnar’s been on a winning streak of late. Oh I can’t wait until WrestleMania. A bonus match. Lesnar versus Angle – and Kurt will be fighting for Olympic Wrestling. Angle’s not done yet, not by a long shot and that’s a truth Lesnar’s just going to have to deal with.” Regal: “Haha, not a problem.”
When we return from commercial, Alberto Del Rio is heading to the ring with only Ricardo Rodriguez in tow announcing him. He still looks as confident as ever though as he gets set to face the leader of the British Invasion, and when ♫Wade Barrett’s music♫ «< click to play) hits, Wade Barrett storms to the ring with purpose, clearly wanting revenge for LAX’s unprovoked attack on Drew McIntyre earlier on tonight.
Alberto Del Rio vs. Wade Barrett
The bell rings and Barrett immediately throws punches at Del Rio, who backs up to the ropes and commands the referee to get Barrett away. Del Rio has a smile on his face as JR reminds us how this Mexico versus Great Britain rivalry has escalated: “Barrett feared that the self-serving LAX would interfere in his KWF Title match at SuperBrawl, and so sent out a pre-emptive strike by having his Brits invade the Hardcore Title match, costing Del Rio the Belt against Sheamus. LAX then did storm the main event, leading to a no contest and preventing Barrett from winning the Top Title. Ever since then the factions have been seen brawling en-masse, and a match between Styler and Rey Mysterio was thrown out last week as they insisted on flooding to the back to join in another huge fight. Now the two leaders come head to head, and Edge has stipulated that if any active wrestler from either faction comes to the ring, then their leader will be immediately Disqualified.” Regal: “What a nonsense decision. Let’s get everyone out here and settle it Blackpool style.”
The match goes back and forth, with Del Rio using underhanded tactics to get back into things every time Barrett starts to get on top. Ricardo Rodriguez is proving a distraction, and JR questions why he is allowed out here. Regal agrees, but chuckles: “It’s alright, I’m sure Wade will give that boy a smack when he gets a chance.” Del Rio is on top and is stomping away at the arm of Barrett. He tries to put on a Cross Armbreaker, but Barrett manages to get to the ropes. However, Ricardo bites his fingers with the referee’s back turned and Barrett is forced to let go. Del Rio pulls Barrett back into the middle of the ring, but as he goes to put the Armbreaker on again, Barrett rolls him up and gets Two. The English Bareknuckle fighter starts to motor, hitting Del Rio with strikes, before sending him against the ropes and nailing a big boot. He now lines up for the Bull-Hammer elbow. However, Del Rio ducks the attempt and sends Barrett against the ropes, coming off the other side himself and they collide, sandwiching the referee, who is down and out. Regal: “Bloody hell ref! What a stupid place to stand. You fully deserved that you berk!”
Both men and the official are down, and the arena fills with boos as LAX take advantage and head to the ring. JR: “Oh no, here they come. And look, Hernandez has a steel chair in his hand.” Ricardo is jumping around in excitement. They get in and surround Barrett, however, there is a cheer as Chavo Guerrero races down the ramp and slides in, before ripping the chair away from SuperMex. He shouts: “No ese! Not like this! You want to win, you do it the honorable way, the Latino way!” Hernandez and the rest of LAX look at Chavo in disbelief, including Del Rio who is now on his feet. “What are you doing?!” Chavo looks at him and shakes his head, before swinging the chair and *BAM!* he hits Wade Barrett right over the head. The fans, the commentators, and even the rest of LAX look on in shock, but LAX soon break the ruse and laugh, patting Chavo on the back. However, they soon have to high-tail it as the British Invasion storm to the ring. LAX exit the ring as one and escape over the barricade. Styler, Mason Ryan and Rob Terry stand in the ring over their fallen leader, as they stare down LAX, who are halfway up the stairs in the crowd. The referee gets to his feet, and sees that the Brits are in the ring, so calls for the bell.
Winner by way of Disqualification: Alberto Del Rio.
Justin Roberts gives us the official word, and JR and Regal are outraged. JR: “What?! How is Del Rio the winner?” Regal: “That is absolute nonsense! The ref got himself knocked out, and the British Invasion was the first team he saw, so he DQ’d Wade, not realizing he is unconscious after having his head was smashed in by Chavo bloody Guerrero!” The Brits are also outraged, trying to tell the official what happened, but the referee is having none of it. LAX are still in the crowd and are laughing at the whole outcome of their attack. JR: “So Chavo was in cahoots with LAX all along?” Regal: “Of course he was, he’s a Guerrero JR. He lies, he cheats and he steals.” However, the Brits aren’t done just yet. They notice that someone hasn’t run for the hills, and as Ricardo Rodriguez continues saying Alberto Del Rio’s name as the winner, Rob Terry heads out to grab him. The frightened announcer is tossed into the ring, right into the arms of Mason Ryan. Del Rio and his faction aren’t smiling any more, but they cannot stop Ryan and Terry from punishing Rodriguez as they lift him up and down for a double-team powerbomb. The fans cheer, but the intensity on the faces of the Brits suggests that they couldn’t care less what the fans think. JR: “Well LAX won the battle, but Ricardo Rodriguez looks like he lost the war, and possibly part of his spine.” Regal: “Haha, good! Tit for tat! Those Latinos got Drew earlier, and now the Brits get Rodriguez. Have that Del Rio you ponce!”
We come back from commercial and see that JB is standing by to interview the General Manager, Edge. Edge is scratching his head, clearly distraught over Chavo turning on his word and becoming part of LAX. JB: “Edge this is out of control. The two factions are attacking one another in the back, they’re screwing each other out of matches. How are you going to handle this?” Edge: “I’ll handle it JB, I’ll handle it. I thought a match between the leaders would go a long way, but apparently these guys just wanna beat each other up at every opportunity that they can. I’ve got a lot to think about, but change the subject JB, what else did you want to ask me?” Borash asks why Edge chose to re-sign Matt Morgan to the KWF after he was fired at Casino Warfare, especially given that the KWF will soon be no more. Edge: “Honestly, that’s partly why I did it. Matt Morgan was unfortunate to get the wrong briefcase in that ‘Feast or Fired’ match, and as we head toward the final, and by far the biggest show that the KWF has ever done, I want everything to be the best. Matt called me after Pope and Randy’s showdown a couple of weeks back and put forward his argument that if Mania is going to see the best of the best when it comes to the Intercontinental Title in the KWF, then the Blueprint needs to be a part of it. You’ll remember that when the KWF was split into two brands way back when, we had the IC Belt and the United States Belt, but when they were unified at Starrcade 2011, Matt Morgan beat Dinero and chose to keep the Intercontinental Title. It means a lot to him, and it means a lot to me, just as it does to Pope and Orton. So next week on Turmoil, we will determine yet another WrestleMania match. The Pope D’Angelo Dinero will go one-on-one with The Blueprint Matt Morgan, and the winner will face The Viper Randy Orton for the Intercontinental Championship on the Grandest Stage of them all.”
JB goes on to ask Edge his thoughts on Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar having a WrestleMania rematch ten years in the making. “It’s going to be outstanding. I think it’s great. Two guys who can’t stand each other going at it at Mania, and I know how much that loss hurt Kurt. It’s haunted him for a decade. Personally I think he can do it, but then again Brock Lesnar is no rookie now. He’s a much smarter competitor than people give him credit for and Kurt will have the battle of his life, physically and mentally. Whoever wins, it promises to be a great match.” Edge also comments positively on Kaitlyn becoming the new number one contender for the Women’s Title, says that he’s eagerly anticipating the TLC Tag Title bout at Mania and finally, JB tries to get some inside information on Edge’s thinking with regard to The Rock’s proposal that he be included in the WrestleMania main event. Edge: “Ha, nice try JB. I’m still thinking it over, but for tonight, let me just say that I’m looking forward to our main event, which includes a man who is most definitely in that Title match at WrestleMania. KWF’s World Champion, The Phenomenal AJ Styles up against the founder of TNA, Jeff Jarrett. I’m gonna go make myself comfortable in my Skybox and enjoy it.” He thanks JB and exits the scene.
We come into a shot panning across the skyline of New York. The view goes over to New Jersey and slams down into the MetLife Stadium, the venue of KWF WrestleMania. We go to a video montage recapping moments and highlights of KWF history. We’re reminded of Monday Night’s TNA RAW run by Bret Hart and taken over by Hulk Hogan. We see Ric Flair as General Manager of Friday Night’s Impact SmackDown and we see WWE Titles, TNA Titles and old, new and original characters that have filled the roster over the years here on KWF Blogs. We see reminders of the successes of AJ Styles and Shelton Benjamin as Tag Team Champions. We see Kelly Kelly defeating Mickie James in an I Quit match at The Bash in 2010. We see the awesome moves of one of KWF’s greatest former Hardcore Champions, John Morrison. We see the re-emergence of the original Masked Kane, the kisses between Maria Kanellis and Christy Hemme, Christian Cage defeating Brock Lesnar and The Rock vs. Shawn Michaels with Sting as Special Guest Referee.
We fast forward through the years, with clips reminding us of Metallica at Mania, Jennifer Lopez at SummerSlam and the sweet sweet victory of DX defeating The Dark Side at Survivor Series 2011. We see clips of Money in the Bank Ladder matches, the return of King of the Ring and the glorious explosiveness that is KWF’s X-Division. The Keystone Wrestling Federation was born on July 8th 2009 and through Roster Draft’s, overseas pay-per-views and legendary matches, we now come to our final event ever. Over the past three and a half years KWF Blogs has given all of us moments that will forever remain in our memories and on the night of March 31st we invite you to join us for KWF WrestleMania. A graphic fades onto the screen. It is the logo for KWF WrestleMania 2013. It fades out again, and is replaced by another graphic saying ‘18 days’.
When we come back into the arena, the ♫music of the King of the Mountain♫ «< click to play) hits, and Jeff Jarrett heads to the ring with a guitar in one hand, and his lovely wife Karen on the other. JR: “Double-J returned to the KWF in an attempt to qualify for the Elimination Chamber at SuperBrawl, but he was defeated by Samoa Joe. Now he has an opportunity to face another of his former TNA alumni, AJ Styles.” Regal: “He’s up against it here Jim, but Jeff Jarrett is a very good wrestler, one of the most underrated in my eyes in the last two decades. Styles will have his hands full here. Ooh I do hope the delightful Karen comes and joins us at ringside.” She doesn’t, showing some contempt as she walks past the commentary table. Jarrett’s music stops and there’s a long pause as the crowd stand and wait for the Champ. The tron begins to rise, the golden pyro rains down and finally we hear ♫Get Ready To Fly!♫ «< click to play).
Jeff Jarrett w/ Karen Jarrett vs. AJ Styles
The KWF World Heavyweight Champion looks in a good mood as he is set to go up against Jarrett in the main event. Despite their past differences, they slap hands before the bout, and then get into a collar and elbow tie up. As the Champion takes control early on, JR and Regal look forward to WrestleMania, where Styles will defend his Title in the last ever match of the KWF. JR: “As things stand it is to be a Triple Threat between AJ, John Cena and CM Punk, but now The Rock has thrown a spanner in the works by putting his name forward. There are no guarantees, but Edge is left with quite a dilemma. I wonder what Styles thinks of it.” Regal: “He probably thinks like me, that it’s ludicrous. He has earned his spot in that match by being Champion, Mr. Cena earned it by winning the Royal Rumble, Mr. Punk earned it by winning the Elimination Chamber, but how has Rock earned it? By showing up for once?” JR: “It’s a generational thing William. This match will determine once and for all just who is the best in the KWF, and therefore, in wrestling. Rock saw the former face of the WWE John Cena, the former face of TNA AJ Styles, the self proclaimed Best in the World CM Punk, and thought that, as the ‘Great One’ of the Attitude Era, that any match of this caliber wouldn’t be complete without him.” Regal: “I agree Jim, Rock’s ego is just that massive.”
Meanwhile, Styles’ early momentum has been halted by Jarrett, who kicks him low in the abdomen before throwing him shoulder-first into the ring-post. Karen applauds from ringside as Jarrett starts to work AJ over. He lifts Styles up onto the turnbuckles, before executing an impressive Superplex. He covers but gets only Two. Regal: “He’s very methodical in his attacks is Jarrett, and it works out well for AJ in a way. Jarrett’s pace and moveset is similar to CM Punk’s.” JR: “I don’t think AJ needs any clues as to how CM Punk wrestles. They had two epic matches toward the end of last year, including quite possibly the best Ironman match since Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart when Styles won the Gold at Survivor Series.” Regal: “That was an amazing night, but just think Jim, WrestleMania promises to be even better. While I will be very sad to see the KWF end, I cannot wait for March 31st.” Jarrett has hit a reverse DDT and gone close again, but Styles shows his resilience. Jarrett then goes for a piledriver, but AJ doesn’t let him get him up, and hits a back-body drop. The fans cheer as Styles tries to get his energy back. He comes off the ropes and hits a flying clothesline, followed by a kick to the head, and then a standing dropkick, sending Jarrett to the outside. We head into our last commercial break of the evening as AJ looks to be on top.
When we return, the action has spilled to the outside, and the duo are trading blows. Karen is yelling at AJ, and after a hard right shot to Double-J, he turns his attention to Karen, telling her to ‘shut her pie hole.’ She is outraged and offended, and goes to slap AJ, but he grabs her arm. However, this provides enough of a distraction for Jeff to hit a chop bloc. Styles is down holding the back of his knee as Jeff gives Karen a kiss on the cheek and rolls the Champ back into the ring. He leaps over the top rope from the apron and hits an elbow drop, covering and using the ropes for leverage. The referee sees this though and stops the count. Jarrett isn’t happy, but picks Styles up and goes to hurl AJ over the top rope. However, Styles lands on the apron and headbutts Jarrett away, before leaping off the top rope to nail him with a flying forearm smash. He covers, but Jarrett kicks out at Two. The match goes on with reversals from both men getting them out of trouble, including Jarrett catching AJ’s boot as he goes for a Pele. However, AJ balances using his hands, before bringing his other foot up and clamping both ankles around the neck of Jarrett. He pushes up and then uses the momentum to roll Jarrett up in a pinning predicament. Jarrett is kicking furiously, but cannot get free as the official counts One, Two, Three!
Winner: AJ Styles.
JR: “The Champ is victorious, and what a way to win. Jeff Jarrett caught a Pele attempt, the first time that’s ever happened in the KWF – but AJ’s not the World Champion for nothing, and he adjusted, adjusted well enough to counter Jarrett and roll him up to get the Three. It’s that kind of quick thinking an innovation that AJ Styles will have to call upon if he is to emerge from WrestleMania with the Title still around his waist.” Regal: “A tremendous match, and an impressive win. As I said, Jeff Jarrett is a very good competitor, and he has bested AJ many times in the past, but it’s Styles who triumphs tonight. Well played, and not a bad show from The Jarretts either.” After the match, Jarrett looks at AJ, and offers his hand. After some contemplation, Styles shakes it and Jarrett pulls him in for a man-hug and a pat on the back. He is saying something to Styles off-mic, and appears to be wishing him luck for Mania. JR: “I can’t tell what he’s saying, but I assume he is telling AJ to do this for TNA. He is the TNA rep in the Mania main event, and Jarrett will be backing him along with many other AJ Styles fans out there.” Regal: “TNA rep? The Generations argument again Jim? For goodness sake, I hope you’re not buying Rock’s argument. In fact I hope Edge isn’t buying it.” The comms reflect on the match and tell that the handshake and hug is a great mark of respect and admiration from the original founder of TNA Wrestling, who exits with Karen to leave Styles in the ring, mic in hand.
AJ’s music stops and he waits for Jeff and Karen to disappear under the tron. The fans stay standing as the show evidently isn’t over. Styles asks for a microphone. He’s then handed a chair and sets it up, sitting backwards on it in the middle of the ring. JR: “Looks like our Champ has something to say.” The audience rumble, waiting intently to hear what AJ has to say. He begins by talking about his time in TNA. “I was one of the originals of that company, and had some great years. However, recently on the House Shows I have been somewhat overlooked, and it is only right here in the KWF that I have felt appreciated by each and every one of you.” The fans cheer. He says that the KWF has always rewarded him for being one of the very best superstars in the business, and talks about some of the wrestlers he’s defeated in his time in the company.
“Now, with WrestleMania on the horizon, I have to face both of John Cena and CM Punk, two guys I have defeated individually in the past year, but it took everything I had to do it. I can’t say I was too happy when I was told I’d have to face two guys at WrestleMania, but that’s how it is and I am gonna have to bring my A-game, just as I always do.” However, he goes on to say that he is on board with The Rock and his plea to be part of Mania’s World Title match. He says that it’s going to be the biggest KWF WrestleMania of all time, it’s going to be KWF’s last ever show and if he can finish the night standing having defeated Punk, Cena and Rock, then he will be remembered as the greatest KWF superstar of all time. “If I already have to face Punk and Cena, then Rock might as well come to the party as well. Can you imagine that picture? Punk, Cena, Styles and Rock? KWF WrestleMania will be remembered as a monumental night no matter what, but if that’s the main event, then whoever wins, it is going to go down as the greatest pay-per-view in wrestling history.” The fans cheer in agreement.
“I have had one hell of a time in this company, and it genuinely breaks my heart to know that in less than three weeks, it all comes to an end. I’ve had the opportunity to work with legends, guys I can now call my friends. The likes of Mick Foley, Sting, Bret Hart, Stone Cold Steve Austin, the list goes on and on. Now to honor them, and most importantly, to honor you, the loyal KWF fans, it’s our duty, and my duty as Champion, to put on the greatest spectacle that sports entertainment has ever seen.” He gives a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has been involved in KWF Blogs, including the writing team, who he says deserve more than anyone to be included in the post-KWF era with either WWE or TNA. “Wrestling needs writers like this; otherwise you end up with things like Claire Lynch, the decline of Tag Team wrestling, the JOB Squad that is Aces and Eights, oh and let’s not forget Three-Man Band.” The fans laugh.
AJ goes on to look up at Edge’s Skybox and publicly asks the GM that he put The Rock in Mania’s main event. He talks about generations, just like Rock did and he asks Edge not to do it for business, not to do it as a friend, but to do it for the fans – “The generations of fans. Every TNA, WWE, WWF and Ring of Honor fan out there, let them have their match. The People’s Match. I know, I know Edge, I know that as Champ I’m asking for a practical three-on-one here, but it’s not about me. The KWF’s always prided itself on putting forward the very best possible stories, the best characters and the best matches. Let Rock into WrestleMania. Give the people what they want so that every one of them generations of fans have a superstar they especially cheer for at Mania’s main event. Make it happen Edge… and let me become the greatest the KWF superstar of all time!” Edge looks on, still showing his poker face, but after looking down at AJ, he looks around the arena as the fans chant loudly for The Rock. JR: “When will Edge make his decision? AJ Styles wants it, these fans want it, and The Rock certainly wants it.” Regal: “Yeah, he wants it so much that he’s not even here. Don’t do it Edge, for the sanctity of wrestling, don’t fall for it.” The show fades out on the image of Edge looking around at the fans chanting ‘Rocky!’ ‘Rocky!’ ‘Rocky!’ ‘Rocky!’
