What is Heaven Sent Wrestling? Heaven Sent Wrestling is my tribute to wrestling stars who have passed away. This is not made as a way to abuse their legacies, or to mock them, and HOW they died will not affect how they are used. Instead, this is a tribute to all those who have fallen, those who we remember. Whether we liked them or not, whether they were great technicians, or sloppy brawlers, all these men are members of the wrestling communty that all here love.
Format: HSW will run 1 monthly card. All wrestlers will be used up to 10 years after their passing. I am only using wrestlers that I am familiar with, at least to some degree. Those who have had multiple gimmicks, names and images throughout their career will be used for the one I remember most, or favored most. I will completely acknoledge, to the best of my memory, alliances, awards and accolades that were bestowed upon these men and women.
Match rules will the standard rules. DQ, Countouts, etc. will still be used and enforced, unless match stipulations otherwise dictate. All matches will be unbooked. All interference, wins, loses etc. are completely decided by TNM. Storylines will be written around these.

Yeah, El Gigante takes out a top competitor and hurts himself. It was pretty funny.
Owen died in '99, so he's past my ten year limit. I have a little calender for when different wrestlers "retire' from the federation. I think Chris Adams isn't here much longer already. Gives me a rotating roster, and plenty of time.
Our first show starts with commissioner Jack Tunney standing in the middle of the ring. With him he has a large Haliburton type case he's holding at his side. He welcomes everyone to Heaven Sent Wrestling. He promises the fan that every month, HSW will deliver on it's promise to entertain. He says they have everything you could want in a federation, from World Champions Chris Beniot & Eddie Guerrero, some of the finest wrestlers from the U.K. like Davey Boy Smith and Chris Adams, amazing tag teams like Public Enemy. This is a show for everyone. Tunney then opens the case revealing the HSW Heavyweight Title! He announces that tonight we will see the final 3 rounds of the Heavyweight title tournament. He reminds everyone that the preliminary rounds can be viewed on HSW's website, including many upsets like El Gigante over Eddie Guerrero and Chris Beniot losing to Hawk.
Heavyweight Title Tournament John Kronus vs. Kanyon
Our first match of the evening pitted former ECW Star John Kronus vs. Kanyon. Kronus was mostly known for his Tag Team career, but proved tonight that a singles career isn't completely out of sight. Kanyon came out and did his "Who Betta Den Kanyon" skit, and it went over like a lead balloon as usual. Kronus was incredibily determined tonight, and busted his ass trying to take out the innovator of offense. Near the end of the match, Kanyon had hit the Flatliner, but Kronus foot was in the ropes. While Kanyon was argueing with the ref, Kronus took him down from behind, ascended the ropes and hit the 450 Splash. Kanyon was visibly upset at this turn of events and made it known with a short tantrum.

Heavyweight title Tournament Mike Awesome vs. "The British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith
The next match in the tournament brought alot of power to the ring. Two of the favorites in the tournament met up in an epic battle. The match started with a show of strength as both men kept hitting eachother with running lariats and neither man going down. Finally, it took Awesome leaving his feet and nailing a flying shoulder block to take down Davey Boy. Even afterwards, the fight went back and forth, with neither man giving in at all. Finally, Awesome was able to hit another devastating clotheline and getting the 1,2,3 over the Bulldog.

Heavyweight title tournament. Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Hercules
If there wasn't enough power in the last match, Hercules came out to take on Bam Bam Bigelow. Bam Bam got a bye in the earlier round and was more then ready for the strong Hercules. Despite his power offense, Hercules' agilty was no match for the bigger Bam Bam Bigelow. Bam Bam dominated the match and eventually got the win with a heavy powerslam.

Heavyweight title Tournament Hawk vs. The Wall
Hawk, another tag team specialist made it this far into the tournament based more on guts then anything else. The massive Wall was no match, as Hawk came into the match in a blaze of glory. Wall could barely mount one phase of offense and the match ended almost as quickly as it started with Hawk as the victor.
[Round 3] Hawk pinned The Wall after a flying shoulderblock in 0:02:07. Rating: **
Before the next round started, Capt Lou Albano came down to the ring. He announced that he was the greatest manager in the history of sports. He watched the preliminary matches closely to see who in HSW he was going to take to the top of the mountain. He saw a few that stood out, including a few still alive in this tournament still. With that, Captain Lou had made his first choice of talent that he will make into a champion, the monster of a man known as Earthquake! Earthquake came down to the ring, and stood behind Captain Lou as he issued a warning to all in HSW, the Captain will be taking over, and his monsters will be destroying everyone.
Heavyweight Tournament Semi-Finals: Mike Awesome vs. John Kronus
Another meeting of former ECW Stars, as Mike Awesome took on John Kronus. Not long after the bell rang, Kanyon made his way down to the ring. Still upset about his loss to Kronus earlier, Kanyon wanted to get his revenge. Kanyon kept distracting Kronus throughout the match, even stalling him on an attempted 450, allowing Mike Awesome to recover and toss him from the top rope. Kanyon slipped a fire extinguisher into the ring and delayed the ref long enough for Mike Awesome to nail Kronus and advance in the tournament. After the match, Kanyon got in the ring, hit Kronus with a Flatliner again and left him lying there.

Heavyweight Tournament Semi-Finals Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Hawk
Hawk came out again like a bat out of hell, but unlike the Wall, Bam Bam could move just as fast. Hawk decided to try and rely on his power instead, but learned a valuable lesson as he tried to Gorilla Press Bam Bam, but it was reversed. Bam Bam hit the "Greetings from Asbury Park" and it was the end for Hawk's run.

Before the next match, Eddie Guerrero was shown backstage. Despite an early exit in the tournament, he looked his regular jovial self. As he joked with a few wrestlers, like Public Enemy and Chris Adams, Sherri Martel walked up. Eddie immediately started with the mamacita's and all, but Sherri told him they had business to discuss. Martel led him off-screen to "talk".
HSW Heavyweight Title Match Mike Awesome vs. Bam Bam Bigelow
The finals for tonight couldn't have been any better. Two former ECW Champions, both big men who could move like cruiserweights, but had the power to man-handle most wrestlers. This was a match that went back and forth, and all over the place. Mike Awesome went so far as to grab a chair, and despite the DQ warning, went after Bam Bam. Bigelow ducked the chairshot, hit the ropes, and nailed Awesome with a HUGE lariat. Bam Bam then picked up the big man for the Greetings of Asbury Park and won the heavyweight title.

Post match, Jack Tunney came down to congratulate Bam Bam and bestow the title upon him. Mid ceremony, Capt Lou and Earthquake came back down to the ring. Capt Lou congratulated Bam Bam Bigelow, said he liked his body of work, and wanted Bam Bam to join him and Earthquake taking over HSW. Bigelow respectfully declined the invitation, saying he made it to the top on his own, and didn't need Capt. Lou's help. Earthquake then started a brawl with Bam Bam and, despite wrestling in 3 matches tonight, Bam Bam still held his own. Bigelow had struck Earthquake with the title belt, sending him tumbling to the floor and leaving Capt. Lou defenseless.....or so we thought. Out of nowhere, Test and Big Boss Man jumped the gaurdrail. Test had booted Bam Bam in the head, and Boss Man nailed a Boss Man Slam. The beat down commenced, with Captain Lou revealing his cards early in HSW, he means business. Just when things looked bleak, down to the ring ran Chris Beniot and Chris Candido. While the alliance with Beniot seemed a bit odd at first, Chris Candido and Bam Bam's friendship was sure not in doubt. Beniot and Candido fought just to clear the ring, and just keep the monsters at bay. While they attended to their fallen comrade. Jack Tunney announced that next month's main event will be The Monsters vs. Bam Bam, Beniot and Candido.

Thanks Rey, thankfully the new month starts soon and we won't have to wait that long. I love the random interference, cause you can either use it to spark something, or turn around and delete it from the results.
Also, Rey, it's Heaven SENT Westling...meaning they've been sent by Heaven, not that it takes place in heaven.....don't argue my whacked out logic dammit!

Rating: ** 3/4 ------------------------------------------------- Our show tonight started with Jack Tunney coming to the ring. He welcomed everyone to the 2nd show in the history of HSW, and he was happy to see what has come to pass so far. He reminded everyone of tonight's line-up, including Public Enemy debuting as a tag team tonight, and the first women's match in HSW. On the tag team note, Jack announced that next week would be an 8 team Tag Team tournament for the HSW Tag Team titles.
As he announced this, out came The Wall and Pitbull 2. They said they felt they were just thrown together to loose to Public Enemy, but that's not going to happen. Tunney addressed the interruption, and said if Wall and Pitbull 2 are so confident that they will win, prove it. If they win tonight, they're in the Tag Title tournament, but if they loose, they're out. The Wall and Pitbull 2 fearlessly agree.
Luna Vachon vs. Rhonda Singh Our first match of the evening was the first Women's match here in HSW. Prior to HSW, both women were referred to as monsters, Rhonda for her size, Luna for her attitude. The two women tried to put up an effort, but the crowd just wasn't into it tonight. The match ended with Rhonda Singh powerbombing Luna and picking up the win.

Backstage we see Sherri Martel talking to Curt Hennig. Eddie Guerrero comes up, and is not too happy to see his new manager talking to another man. Eddie starts getting really riled up, until Hennig stops him. Hennig tells Eddie not to be mad, Sherri just wants someone who's.......perfect. Eddie gets even more fired up, and Sherri says it's nice to see two strong men fighting over her "services." She aks both men to enter the ring and prove their worth to her....tonight.
Public Enemy vs. The Wall & Pitbull 2 Public Enemy came in with a lot of fanfare. This is a team that really brings the energy and always has the fans on their feet, and tonight was no different. The Wall & Pitbull 2 were not in any mood to dance, rap, or anything else. Both men were bigger and stronger, and were ready to show what they have. Public Enemy started the match on top, with Rocco Rock and Johnny Grunge using hot tags and their brawling ability to isolate Pitbull 2. Despite The Wall's attempts, it seemed like Public Enemy had this in the bag. That was until the tables came out. Pitbull 2 had been placed on the table, and Rocco Rock had put him through it with the Drive-By. Unfortunately, The Wall had hit a blind tag just before this. With Rock and Pitbull outside, writing in pain, The Wall was able to grab a dancing Johnny Grunge from the apron, lift him over the top-rope, and Choke Slam him damn near through the mat. A 1,2,3 later and Pitbull and Wall gaurenteed themselves a spot in next week's tag title tournament.

Miss Elizabeth is backstage interviewing Chris Beniot prior to tonight's Main Event. Elizabeth says people can understand why Candido helped out Bigelow given their past. She then asks Beniot why he got involved in the confrontation between Bam Bam Bigelow and Earthquake. Beniot says he respects Bam Bam Bigelow, and the fact that he's champion. He said he doesn't want to see Bam Bam loose that right because a bunch of parasites are attacking a man like that while weak. Beniot says he has a plan, and that's all he'll say now.
John Kronus vs. Kanyon No DQ Match:
This fued started last week, when Kanyon attacked Kronus during the heavyweight Title tournamnet. A No- Disqualification match was booked to try and calm these two down, but it may have only made the situation worse. Kronus made his way down to the ring first, but before he could even climb the steps, Kanyon nailed him with a chair from behind. Kanyon continued the brutal beating, and finished it off with the Flatliner on the chair. Kanyon climbed back in the ring, and took the countout victory before Kronus even knew what happened.

Curt Hennig vs. Eddie Guerrero
Sherri Martel gave commentary during the match. She made sure to point out that she was now officially employeed as the manager of both men, and that she will lead both me to the top of HSW. For a match that started as a near brawl backstage, this was incredibly technically sound. Both men are known for their abilities in the ring, and their cockiness while doing so. Both men also know how to take shortcuts and take advantage. More then once momentum changed hands while Eddie or Curt were strutting, showing off, and just trying to show who was better. The match ended when Hennig went for the Perfect-Plex, but Eddie reversed it into rolling vertical suplexes. Eddie locked the Lasso From El Paso in for the win. Afterwards, Eddie took him time, going turnbuckle to turnbuckle and playing it up for the fans.

Crash Holly vs. Mike Awesome
Mike Awesome came one pin short last week of becoming HSW's first champion, and he was none to happy about it. Using a very strong style reminiscient of his time in Japan, Awesome tried to powerbomb, suplex and clothesline Crash through the ring. Unfortunately, his rage got the best of him more then once, and Crash was on a high diet of reversals and escapes of his own. No matter what Crash did though, he couldn't bring down the much larger Mike Awesome. Finally, an Awesome Bomb ended Crash's misery and Awesome was the victor. Instead of returning to the back, Awesome took a seat ringside to watch the Main Event.

Captain Lou's Monsters vs. Bam Bam Bigelow, Chris Beniot and Chris Candido
This was a classic match of Size vs. Agility. Bam Bam Bigelow and the boys could definetely move quicker, and used that to their advantage. A huge Main Event, with some mammouth men, was more heated and brawling then anything else. Neither team really had a super strong advantage, nearing the 15 minute mark, so Lou tried to turn the tides in his favor by tripping up Chris Candido. Bam Bam and Beniot didn't take to this too much, and Pee Wee Anderson finally lost control. All six men brawled in the ring, and Candido, Test and Boss Man even took it outside. While Boss Man and Test tried to double team Candido, Chris Beniot took to the air with a suicide dive taking all 3, and himself out. Bam Bam got Earthquake down with a shoulder tackle and finished him off with a flying shoulder block for the win.

Post match, Mike Awesome decided to enter the ring. Expecting a fight, Bam Bam Bigelow braced himself. Instead of going after Bam Bam, Awesome nailed Earthquake with an Awesome Splash, angering Capt Lou. Bigelow started smiling and went to shake Awesome's hand, but that was met with a nasty short-arm lariat as well. Awesome picked up Bigelow, and impressively nailed him with an Awesome Bomb. The show ended with Awesome just standing there, glaring at the Heavyweight Title. -------------------------------------------------- Next Week's line-up so far: 8 Team Tag Team Title Tournament: Public Enemy The British Gentlemen (Adams & Smith) Dr. Death & Terry Gordy The Wall & Pitbull 2 Kronus & Mystery Partner Kanyon & Mystery Partner Capt Lou's Monsters (Test & Big Boss Man) Eddie Guerrero & Curt Hennig

-------------------------------------------------------------------- Our show starts this week with Jack Tunney coming out with the HSW Tag Team titles in a beautiful case. Elizabeth accompanies him, and together they hold the titles while Jack informs everyone tonight will be the night the HSW crown their first ever tag team champions. Jack is interrupted by Capt. Lou Albano. Capt Lou states he might as well just give the titles over to him now, noone will be able to stop Boss Man and Test. On top of that, Capt Lou is upset that Earthquake is not being given the respect he deserves. Capt. Lou called Bam Bam a paper champ, pointing out that Bam Bam Bigelow hasn't had to defend the title. There's not even a number 1 contender announced! Jack says he couldn't agree more. And it's time to name one. He announces next week, Earthquake will get his chance, and his "respect", but he won't be facing Bam Bam Bigelow without earning it. Jack announces that next week, Earthquake will face Chris Beniot and Mike Awesome in a three-way dance to determine the number 1 contender. Capt. Lou seems satisifed, but not exactly ecstatic. Jack then announces that tonight, in the spirit of tag teams, Bam Bam and Beniot will team up and face Awesome and Earthquake!
HSW Tag Title Tournament: Capt Lou's Monsters (Boss Man/Test) vs. The British Gentlemen
Our first match of the tournament and Capt Lou's Monsters had first bill against the two men from the UK. Neither Adams nor Davey Boy are slouches, especially when it comes to Tag Team wrestling, and they put the boots to Test and Boss Man for a majority of the time. Unfortunately, Capt. Lou played the role of equalizer, as everytime the Brits got an advantage, he made sure to stick his nose in. The match finally ended when Capt Lou disctracted the ref, allowing Boss Man to use his nightstick on both Adams and DBS, allowing Test to polish them off with the Pumphandle.

Sherri Martel is shown backstage with Eddie Guerrero and Curt Hennig. Hennig is cockily smiling, telling both of them not to worry, he could single handedly walk through the Tag Tournament and will bring Sherri the gold she wants. Eddie points out that he's already showed Curt who's going to carry this team. Curt and Eddie got face to face, until Sherri separated the two.
HSW Tag Title Tournament: John Kronus & vs. Public Enemy
Public Enemy were expected to come out on fire in HSW, being the most expierienced team in the federation, but have come out flat thus far. Kronus has had his hands full with Kanyon from the beginning of HSW and he needed a partner to back him up and keep his hopes of winning gold here in HSW alive. Kronus found a partner who has had as much, if not more success in Tag Team wrestling as him. "Ohhhhhhhhhhhh WHHHHHHATT A RRRRRRRUSSSSSSSSH" and outran Hawk, member of the great Road Warriors. The match was a classic tag match in almost every term, with constant tags, and four men who have had plenty of success in this exact situation. Things changed about the 15 minute mark when Kanyon came out and attacked Kronus, causing the DQ. Kronus and Hawk advanced by default, and now Kanyon made 4 enemies instead of just one. Kanyon slipped out before Hawk could grab him, and yelled to Kronus he'll see him in round 2.

HSW Tag Title Tournament: Curt Henning/Eddie Guerrero w/ Sherri Martel vs. Terry Gordy/Steve Williams
Geurerro and Hennig were a team of attitude and cockiness. Gordy and Williams were two men who went out there and meant business. Gordy and Williams kept the match on their side, both of them using power and some unorthodox style to try and ground Hennig and Guerrero and wear them out. With Eddie cornered and being beaten in the corner, Curt tried to get more involed....this time, with a steel chair. Unfortunately, the ref wasn't blind and it was hard to miss such a blatant chair shot. The immediate DQ moved Gordy and Williams to the next round, and did nothing more then anger Eddie. Curt kind of smiled as he walked off. Did he really want to win?

Backstage Chris Beniot is sitting in the locker room, taping up for his match later tonight. Bam Bam Bigelow walked in the room and shook Chris' hand. Bam Bam told him he really hopes that Beniot and him can work together tonight, and then meet just further down the road. Beniot gaurentees they will.
HSW Tag Title Tournament: The Wall/Pitbull 2 vs. Kanyon & ??
The Wall and Pitbull 2 snuck in the backdoor, people expecting them to loose to the more expierienced Public Enemy, and now were fighting for gold. Kanyon, with more enemies every minute, would be hard-pressed to find a tag partner, but much to most people's surprised, he found a monster of one. In came Umaga....and he came in ready to fight. Umaga started the fight with The Wall, and the two big men seemed to brawl for hours. Everytime Umaga had the upperhand, Kanyon would come in, throw a stomp or two into The Wall, and tag Umaga back in at the first sign of danger. Pitbull 2 finally fought his way in, and ever got his powerful arms around Kanyon, but he was not the legal man. As Umaga finished off the Wall and moved his team to round 2, Kanyon escaped and had run to the back, away from danger.

HSW Tag Title Tournament: Capt. Lou's Monsters vs. Kronus/Hawk
Round 2 is shaping up nicely, with 4 very good tag teams left. Capt Lou was confident that his team would bring him gold this week, and Earthquake bringing gold in the near future. Sadly this was not the case as Kronus and Hawk just ran together with chemistry and intensity. Hawk did what he needed to, keeping Boss Man subdued as Kronus battled Test, and eventually got the 1,2,3 and the win.

HSW Tag Title Tournament: Terry Gordy/ Steve Williams vs. Kanyon/ Umaga
Again, Gordy and Williams were dominant, but this time it was against a much tougher individual, Umaga. More than once Umaga tried to get awake from the pounding, and tried to tag in Kanyon, who happened to not paying attention at the time. Umaga finally had enough of it, ran through Terry Gordy and forcefully tagged Kanyon in, and then THREW Kanyon in. Dr. Death and Terry Gordy inflicted as much pain as possible, and Umaga just sat on the outside watching, making no effort to save his partner. Finally, Kanyon passed out in the Asiatic Spike. Afterwards, Umaga ran in, lifted up the limp Kanyon, and nailed him with the Samoan Spike.

Chris Benoit / Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Earthquake / Mike Awesome
Four of the biggest names in HSW all in the ring at once, with all fans excited and ready for the fight, and a fight they got. While Benoit and Bam Bam have been working well as a team so far, Earthquake and Awesome were less then eye-to-eye on everything. Both men kept trying to jockey their way in the match whenever momentum shifted in their favor, and their arguing and bickering allowed Beniot and Bam Bam to make the tags to keep their team going. Finally, tempers had boiled over, and while Capt Lou tried to give Earthquake some advice, Awesome ran across the ring and nailed his own partner with a vicious lariat. Unfortunately for him, when he turned around, Chris Benoit nailed him with a snap suplex, ran to the top rope, and nailed the Diving Headbutt for the win. Beniot and Bam Bam left the ring, as Captain Lou and Earthquake ran into the ring and argued with Awesome. Eventually road agents and officials ran in to clear the men for our Main Event.

HSW Tag Title Tournament: John Kronus/Hawk vs. Terry Gordy/Steve Williams
Fatigue started to settle in for both teams and it started to show. All 4 men were noticably slower, but still kept up a steady enough pace to make a decent match. Gordy/Williams had worked to isolate Kronus from the beginning, given Hawk enough time to build up momentum. When Kronus made the hot tag, Hawk hit the ring like a bolt of lighting and drove his body with force through both men. Hawk nailed the flying shoulderblock and got the pin, before he even noticed he had won! Kronus and Hawk celebrated, shoot Terry Gordy's and Steve Williams' hands, as the show went off the air.

Lou turns back to Elizabeth and gaurentees he has a way to make sure that gets done.
Curt Hennig vs. "World Tag Champion" Hawk
Curt and Eddie have been under the managerial services of Sherri Martel and at eachother's throats the whole way. Last month, Hawk added another Tag Title to his vast collection when he and John Kronus walked away the HSW Tag Team champions, which Sherri was not happy with. To prove eachtother were the weak links, Hennig and Guerrero challenged the tag champs one on one tonight. Our first match was Hawk vs. Hennig. Hawk did what he does best and overpowered Hennig at every chance, but Hennig is a technician and used that to outsmart Hawk. Towards the end, Hawk looked like he was coming back, until Sherri Martel slid a chair into the ring. While Sherri distracted Hawk and the referee, Hennig grabbed the chair, and nailed Hawk. Hennig made the pinfall and got the 1,2,3.

Kanyon vs. Umaga
Kanyon made another enemy last week when he left Umaga and walked out on him. Umaga was not happy and it showed tonight. Kanyon tried to outsmart, outwit, and finally outrun the Samoan Bulldozer, but even he couldn't escape the wraith. Kanyon was trying to make it known he wants to be top dog, and doesn't mind stepping on anyone, which is ironically because Umage literally stepped on Kanyon more then once in the match. Umaga hit the Samoan Spike and got the pinfall. Afterwards, Umage inflicted even more damage, and Kanyon may want to reconsider his enemies.
Umaga pinned Kanyon with the Samoan Spike in 0:13:05. Rating: ** 3/4
Chris Beniot was shown backstage preparing for his match. Beniot was all business and was not in the mood to chat. He warned Bam Bam that he'll be seeing him next month.
Triangle Tag Match: The British Gentlemen vs. Public Enemy vs. Williams & Gordy
After last weeks tag tornament, tag team wrestling has been on the fans minds. Many teams are already gunning for Hawk & Kronus, and the three top teams all took it to the ring tonight. Public Enemy was expected to be some top dogs in the tag division but have fallen short. In this hard-fought match, Grunge and Rocco got some momentum back on their side as Grunge pinned Chris Adams after a powerful Spinebuster.

Camera's were rushing backstage to a fallen wrestler. Laying on the ground unconscious was Chris Candido. Bam Bam Bieglow ran into view and checked on his friend. Enraged, and assure of the assailants, Bam Bam grabbed the first wrestler he saw and took him out to the ring, Trent Acid was the lucky soul tonight.
Bam Bam Bigelow & Trent Acid vs. Big Boss Man & Test Test and Boss Man were already in the ring, as Bam Bam Bigelow drug Trent Acid down to the ring with him. Bam Bam hit the ring on fire and went back and forth pounding Test and Boss Man. Eventually his adrenaline died down and the numbers caught up to him. Boss Man and Test were able to gain control and were really working on Bam Bam. A few times Bam Bam tried to tag in Acid, but he wanted nothing to do with the match. Finally, as Trent wasn't paying attention, Bam Bam forced tagged him in with a stiff shot to the back of the head, and throwing him over the rope. Test nailed Acid with a big boot and the Pumphandle for the win as Bam Bam left the ringside area. Capt. Lou actually got into the ring and went off on Boss Man/Test, apparently upset Bam Bam was able to walk away at all.

Before the next match, Sherri Martel busted into Jack Tunney's office. She said that Hennig already proved her team should get a tag title shot, and demanded one as soon as possible. Jack said he just watched Williams & Gordy show up two teams, and that was pretty impressive. He said they really should be the #1 contenders, but he's a reasonable man. If Eddie Guerrero defeated John Kronus, her team will face Williams and Gordy next week to determine the number 1 contenders.
Eddie Guerrero vs. John Kronus
Sherri Martel made sure Eddie was ready for this match, and the former World Champ was not about to disappoint. Kronus tried to defend himself, but the far superior Guerrero had an ace up his sleeve, the evil Sherri Martel. Kronus was able to climb to ropes looking to go for the 450, but Sherri distracted him, giving Eddie enough time to throw Kronus from the top rope. Eddie then leaped off the top rope himself and hit the Frog Splash for the win.
Eddie Guerrero pinned John Kronus after a frog splash in 0:11:15. Rating: *** 3/4 [Sherri Martel interfered against John Kronus.]
#1 Contenders Match: Chris Benoit vs. Earthquake vs. Mike Awesome
With so much on the line, all three men were fired up. Only one man would face Bam Bam Bigelow next month, and all three knew that the ultimate goal was not going to be easy. In this hard hitting match, we hit a climax when Mike Awesome and Chris Beniot worked together for a second, with Awesome nailed Earthquake with a monster lariat, and Beniot hit the Diving Headbutt. Before the ref could even count one, Awesome had broken up the pin and starting going blow for blow with Beniot. Beniot nailed a running Awesome with a double chop, and Eathquake, having just gotten up, hit Awesome with the Earthquake Splash. Beniot and Earthquake were able to brawl again, and we once again saw Beniot on the top rope, but Capt. Lou pushed him off at the last second, and Beniot was down.
Bam Bam Bigelow had seen enough and ran down to the ringside area to get his hands on Capt. Lou. Earthquake had rolled out of the ring and started brawling with Bam Bam and protecting his boss. Awesome was able to regain his composure, and nailed the still groggy Beniot with the Awesome Bomb and got the win!
Triangle Match Mike Awesome defeated Chris Benoit and Earthquake when Awesome pinned Benoit with the Awesome Bomb in 0:23:02. Rating: **** 3/4 [Capt. Lou Albano interfered against Chris Benoit.]
Post match, Awesome, Beniot, Bam Bam and Earthquake continued to brawl. Test and Boss Man came down to join the frey, going after both Awesome and Bam Bam mainly. Finally Jack Tunney had enough. He came out to the entranceway and demanded they stop. Capt. Lou had gotten involved way too much lately and he will not see next month's match tarnished with his constant interference. Next month, there will be a special Guest referee just to make sure Lou and his boys do not get involved.
