Feels like we haven't seen Ryder in awhile, but it doesn't seem to matter as Abyss continues to plow through all of his competition.
I like that Sheamus is getting the push as the guy unmasking all of the Sin Caras. The idea behind multiple Sin Caras is a good one, but extremely hard to pull off for very long before they all start feeling the same.
I have no idea who Gran Markus is.
Hope the Patriot can keep up this momentum.
Tough loss for Butcher, but he did put up quite the fight.
Good show, can't wait to see what happens between Sheamus and Sin Cara II.
Welcome to Bodyslam Pro Wrestling. Tonight we've got four great matches lined up so let's get down to the ring for tonight's action!
Sin Cara vs. "The Monster" Abyss
Sin Cara had an uphill battle against the Monster that is Abyss tonight, but Sin Cara was surprisingly able to keep himself from getting maimed early with his speed and high risk moves that actually paid off. He couldn't hold on forever though and was met with a Black Hole Slam giving Abyss the win.

"The Innovator of Violence" Tommy Dreamer vs. "The Littlest Lumberjack" Grizzly Redwood
Tommy Dreamer did a good job of giving the littlest lumberjack as few openings as possible and Redwood wasn't really able to make the most of any that did present themselves. Dreamer showed why he is a veteran of the sport tonight and followed a Death Valley Driver with the Dreamer DDT for the win.
Tommy Dreamer pinned Grizzly Redwood with the Dreamer DDT in 0:12:01. Rating: *** 3/4
Sin Cara II vs. "The Celtic Warrior, the Great White" Sheamus
Sheamus seemed to come into this match underestimating Sin Cara II, because Sin Cara II was able to get some great offense in agaist the Great White Sheamus. It wouldn't last forever though. Sin Cara II went for a flying spinning heel kick that Sheamus ducked, setting him up for the High Cross and the pinfall.

After the match Sheamus motions that he's going to unmask this Sin Cara too as he did with Sin Caras III & IV. He pulls the mask off to reveal Super Crazy!
Main Event Bodyslam Heavyweight Championship Title Match The Patriot vs. "The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry
The Patriot make an incredible effort against Mark Henry here tonight. Probably one of the better attempts at the title that we've seen. The Patriot threw everything he could at Mark Henry, but Henry weathered the storm, got a two count after a back suplex and a three count after the World's Strongest Slam.
[Main Event]: Mark Henry pinned The Patriot with the World's Strongest Slam in 0:12:11. Rating: ** 1/2 (Mark Henry retained the Bodyslam Heavyweight Title.)
What a night of action. Mark Henry once again successfully retains his Heavyweight Title despite the Patiot's best efforts. Join us next week when we'll see Christopher Daniels in action as well as the Patriot and CM Punk will face Raven in a tables #1 Contender Match! We'll see you then!
Slightly surprised to see Abyss and Sin Cara in a match together, but I guess it goes to show you that Abyss is slightly higher up on the totem pole at this point.
I love this lumberjack.
SUPER CRAZY! Yay! I like the group you have around Sin Cara. I now want to see if Sheamus faces off against Sin Cara and actually unmasks the original.
The Patriot definitely felt like more of a threat against Henry then in his previous match, but there was still no way he dropping the title here. I think Abyss and Sheamus are the only guys I could see taking the strap from Henry at this point.
Welcome once again to Bodyslam Pro Wrestling! Tonight we've got a great main vent in store as Raven and CM Punk face off in a tables mach to decide the #1 contender for the Bodyslam Heavyweight Title. We've also got the Patriot taking on Matt Hardy and JTG taking on Christopher Daniels. But right now let's get down to the ring to see Tommy Dreamer face Ted DiBiase.
"The Innovator of Violence" Tommy Dreamer vs. Ted DiBiase
This match had some good back and forth. Ted DiBiase got the Million Dollar Dream on Tommy at one point, but neglected to go for the Dream Street and Dreamer fought it way out. Dreamer on the other hand pulled the trigger right away when he had a shot at hitting the Dreamer DDT, but it was only good enough for two. He tried for a second one but DiBiase fought out and hit the Dreamer Street to gain the victory.
Ted DiBiase pinned Tommy Dreamer with the Dream Street in 0:10:54. Rating: ** 3/4
New music hits and out comes Alberto Del Rio, formally Sin Cara III under a mask, who makes his way down to the ring and gets on the microphone. He says he isn't happy with Sin Cara and the way Sin Cara fed him to Sheamus at a time when he clearly wasn't ready to wrestle, trying to make an obvious excuse for why he lost that encounter. Del Rio challenges Sin Cara to a match next week so he can show what kind of man he really is.
JTG vs. "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels
This match was mostly Christopher Daniels. He looked clean and crisp in the ring and simply out wrestled JTG. Daniels hit a series of jabs to stun JTG and then took him down with an STO to set up the Best Moonsault Ever.
Christopher Daniels pinned JTG with the Best Moonsault Ever in 0:06:37. Rating: ** 1/4
The Patriot vs. "Cold Blood" Matt Hardy
This match was a barn burner. The Patriot wanted to keep up his momentum, but Matt Hardy had something to prove and the Patriot was a fine person to do that with. Matt Hardy hit the Side Effect and then locked in the Ice Pick. Unfortunately he was too close to the ropes and the Patriot's foot was under the rope, forcing Hardy to break the hold. After that the Patriot mounted a huge come back and leveled Hardy with shot after shot after shot until he finally put him away with the Uncle Slam.
The Patriot pinned Matt Hardy with the Uncle Slam in 0:08:18. Rating: ****
Main Event #1 Contender Table Match CM Punk vs. Raven
As with past meetings between CM Punk and Raven, this match was entertaining, but maybe not the prettiest thing in the world, but that was ok, it was an exciting fight. Raven hit the Evenflow DDT at one point, but since there are no pinfalls it did him little good in the short term. Raven went outside to get a table and slid it into the ring. Unforunately Punk had recovered enough to grab Raven and hit the GTS. He was still too hurt to capitalize though. Raven took a powder outside and Punk followed him. Raven threw Punk into the corner post and then set Punk up on the announcer's table. Raven got up on the ring and onto the second rope and flew off with a flying elbowdrop, but Punk moved out of the way! Raven crashes through the table, ending the match and giving CM Punk the victory!

What a night! Join us next week when CM Punk will face Mark Henry for the Bodyslam Heavyweight Title, Sheamus will be in action, Sin Cara will answer the challenge of Alberto Del Rio and Legacy will defend their tag team titles against Necro Butcher and Tommy Dreamer.
Welcome to Bodyslam Pro Wrestling! Tonight we've got a great line up including Mark Henry in a title defense against CM Punk.
The Blue Meanie vs. "The Celtic Warrior, the Great White" Sheamus
The Blue Meanie seemed doomed from the get go. Sheamus attacked him before the bell and despite some chants for Meanie Sheamus quickly ended things with the Brogue Kick.
Sheamus pinned The Blue Meanie with the Brogue Kick in 0:03:05. Rating: *
Sin Cara vs. Alberto Del Rio
Sin Cara started off good and was moving at a pace that seemed a little too fast for Del Rio. Eventually Del Rio had enough and spiked Cara hard with a Michinoku Driver. From then on the match was all Del Rio. He locked in his Cross Armbreaker and all Cara could do was fight until he passed out from the pain.

Bodyslam Tag Team Title Match Necro Butcher & Tommy Dreamer vs. Legacy (Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase) (c)
Dreamer and Butcher caught Legacy off guard as the match started with a match og fisticuffs. Legacy, however, is a well oiled tag team machine and was able to overcome any early advantage that Butcher and Dreamer had. It had devolved into a cluster fuck at the end, but DiBiase threw Dreamer over the top rope, allowing Rhodes to hit the Cross Rhodes and get an uninterupted pinfall.

Main Event Bodyslam Heavyweight Title Match CM Punk vs. "The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry (c)
Mark Henry and CM Punk have met in the ring twice before and both of those times, which Punk fought his heart out, Mark Henry walked away with the win. Punk seemed etra determined tonight to win that Heavyweight Title, but it was an uphill battle against a goliath. Eventually things spilled to the outside where Henry hit the World's Strongest Slam on the concrete floor. Henry played to the booing crowd and didn't notice Sheamus running down to the ring! Henry turned right into the Brogue Kick from Sheamus! Henry is down and out! The referee makes the 10 count and we have a double countout!

Well, Henry retained the Bodyslam Heavyweight Title and kept his 12 win streak alive, but we saw something we've never seen before and that was Henry being taking down and knocked out by Sheamus and the Brogue Kick! Join us next week when we'll see Sheamus in action, Abyss takes on Gran Markus Jr., we'll see the debut of Mr. Wrestling 3 and in the main event it'll be Jimmy Jacobs & Zack Ryder challenging Legacy for the Tag Team Titles!
Welcome to BPW! Tonight we'll see Abyss in action, Zack Ryder & Jimmy Jacobs face off against Legacy for the Tag Team Titles as well as the debut of Mr. Wrestling 3. Now let's get down to our first match.
Necro Butcher vs. "The Celtic Warrior, the Great White" Sheamus
This match started out with exchanges of chops. Harder and harder. Eventually they switched to headbutts. It seemed that Sheamus was surprised at just how much punishment Necro Butcher could withstand. After the Brogue Kick, however, it was time for Necro Butcher to count the lights.
Sheamus pinned Necro Butcher with the Brogue Kick in 0:04:59. Rating: * 3/4
"El Trailer Asesino" Gran Markus Jr. vs. "The Monster" Abyss
Abyss tried to run right through Gran Markus Jr, but his size helped him hang in there. It wasn't the prettiest match, but thanks to Gran Markus' strength and size, he was able to hit the Black Hole Slam to win.
Abyss pinned Gran Markus Jr. with the Black Hole Slam in 0:07:48. Rating: **
Mr. Wrestling 3 vs. TAKA Michinoku
Mr. Wrestling 3 had a slow start to the match. TAKA was in control and it seemed like Mr. Wrestling 3's debut was going to be a lackluster one, but then he flicked it on like a switch and started to out wrestle and out work TAKA Michinoku. Once he had the match in his grasp he never let it go. He locked in an abdominal stretch to soften him up a little more, allowing him to hit the Island-Plex for the win.

Main Event Bodyslam Tag Team Title Match Zack Ryder & Jimmy Jacobs vs. Legacy (Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase) (c)
While Jacobs and Ryder had their moments during the match, it was mostly an affair led by Legacy. They did manage to avoid a trip to Dream Street or the Cross Rhodes, though. It was a flying cross body block and a handful of tights that pulled out the win for Rhodes & DiBiase.

CM Punk's music hits and out he comes to a chorus of cheers. He gets on the microphone and says that he's upset. Upset that Sheamus got involved in last week's match against Mark Henry. He says that win or lose that was HIS match and he doesn't need people sticking their noses where they don't belong. Suddenly Raven's music interupts Punk. Raven tells Punk to stop crying and starts running Punk down from just outside the ring. And here comes Sheamus! He's behind Raven and spins him around. Raven goes for a clothesline, but Sheamus ducks. Brogue Kick on Raven! Sheamus leaves with absolutely no explination for his acctions this week or last.
What a night! The Tag Team Champions retain the title, we saw the impressive debut of Mr. Wrestling 3 and we've got Sheamus going around Brogue Kicking people but with what motive? Join us next week when we'll see Christopher Daniels in action, newcomer Mr. Wrestling 3 faces Jeff Hardy and in the main event it'll be CM Punk taking on Abyss!
Welcome to BPW! Tonight we've got a great night of bouts lined up with CM Punk taking on the Damned's muscle, Abyss. Now, let's get to ringside for the opening match up.
"Long Island Iced-Z" Zack Ryder vs. "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels
Despite Ryder's best efforts, this match was mostly Chistopher Daniels on offense. Zyder did manage to hit the Rough Ryder out of absolutely nowhere, but Daniels kicked out at two and a half. Daniels used the Angel's Wings to set up the Best Moonsault Ever.
Christopher Daniels pinned Zack Ryder with the Best Moonsault Ever in 0:07:12. Rating: *** 1/2
Mr. Wrestling 3 vs. "The Charismatic Enigma" Jeff Hardy
Mr. Wrestling 3 started out slow against Jeff Hardy, but he managed to keep the match at his pace and not Hardy's. Mr. Wrestling 3 hit a solid back heel kick followed it with a series of chops and then hits the Island-Plex for three.
Mr. Wrestling 3 pinned Jeff Hardy with the Island-Plex in 0:08:58. Rating: *** 1/2
Sin Cara vs. "The Littlest Lumberjack" Grizzly Redwood
To say this match was all Sin Cara would be an understatement. The littlest lumberjack didn't have a real chance to gain control of the match. A Moonsault Side Slam ended things for Redwood.
Sin Cara pinned Grizzly Redwood with the Moonsault Side Slam in 0:06:52. Rating: *** 3/4
Main Event CM Punk vs. "The Monster" Abyss
Abyss is a monster to begin with, but seeing as his opponent was CM Punk, both Raven and Christopher Daniels were at ringside for this match. Punk had a hard time keeping a watchful eye on everybody and it hurt him. Right as Punk was mounting some offense, Daniels hit Punk in the back with a chair and Abyss nailed the Black Hole Slam to end the match.
[Main Event]: Abyss pinned CM Punk with the Black Hole Slam in 0:06:23. Rating: **** [Christopher Daniels interfered against CM Punk.]
After the match, Raven, Daniels and Abyss, the Damned, continue to assault CM Punk. And out comes Sheamus! Sheamus gets in the ring, Brogue Kick to Daniels sending him flying out of the ring! Another Brogue Kick to Abyss! And Raven gets the hell out of the ring before Sheamus can make it three. As Punkn comes to he seems to wonder why Sheamus came out to make the save for him.
What a night! And what a night we'll have next week! Sheamus and CM Punk will team up to face Raven and Abyss, Mark Henry will be in non-title action and we'll also see the Patriot in action! We'll see you then.
Welcome to Bodyslam Pro Wrestling. Tonight we've got Mark Henry in non-title action as well as a great tag team match in tonight's main event! Let's get down to the ring to kick off tonight's action.
The Patriot vs. "The Littlest Lumberjack" Grizzly Redwood
The Patriot was on fire tonight and it showed, picking up an impressiveand quick win over the littlest lumberjack here tonight.
The Patriot pinned Grizzly Redwood with the Uncle Slam in 0:02:40. Rating: * 3/4
Necro Butcher vs. Alberto Del Rio
Alberto Del Rio did a good job keeping the match where he wanted, which was far away from a slugfest. Del Rio got a couple near falls, but if there is onething Necro Butcher is good at it's taking massive amounts of punishment and coming back for more. Once the Cross Armbreaker was locked in though things were all over.
Alberto Del Rio made Necro Butcher submit to the Cross Armbreaker in 0:08:10. Rating: *** *
Non-Title Match JTG vs. "The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry
Even though tonight's match was a non-title one, Mark Henry was like a ball of fire out of the gates, not letting JTG get a move in edgewise. Henry mercifully ended the beating quickly after the World's Strongest Slam.

Main Event Sheamus & CM Punk vs. The Damned (Raven & Abyss)
Tonight's main event was a doozy. Lot of back and forth. Abyss and Sheamus definitely brought the power tonight. Raven attempted to hit Punk with a chair but Punk countered with a spinning back heel kick. As Raven recovered, Punk tagged in Sheamus who immediately hit the Brogue Kick for the win.

The Patriot & Mr. Wrestling 3 vs. Jimmy Jacobs & Zack Ryder
This match was mostly the Mr. Wrestling 3 showing off his wrestling chops against Jimmy Jacobs. Jacobs was eventually able to make the tag, but Zack Ryder couldn't hold onto the small bit of momentum he had. Mr. Wrestling 3 ducked a clothesline and hit the Island-Plex for three.

"The Insane Luchadore" Super Crazy vs. TAKA Michinoku
This match has a lot of high flying and high risk moves. It was fast paced and Super Crazy landed pretty flush on the back of his head when Michinoku hit a Michinoku driver which he followed with the Just Facelock causing Super Crazy to immediately tap out.
TAKA Michinoku made Super Crazy submit to the Just Facelock in 0:07:26. Super Crazy suffered a neck injury. He will be out for approximately 5 months. Rating: *** *

Main vent #1 Contender 30-Minute Iron Man Match CM Punk vs. "The Celtic Warrior" Sheamus
This match was one for the books. It had a lot of back and forth and neither man could see to get the pinfall though both came close on several occassions. CM Punk even kicked out of the Brogue Kick just barely. When it came to the end of the match Punk ducked a Brogue Kick and booted Sheamus in the midsection. He hoisted Sheamus up and hit the GTS, but he couldn't pin him quick enough as the time expired and the match ended in a draw.
[Main Event: #1 Contender Match]: Iron Man Match: CM Punk drew Sheamus: x time limit expired (Punk and Sheamus) in 0:30:00 Rating: *** * 1/2
Well tonight's #1 contender's match ended up in a draw so it has been decided that next week Mark Henry will defend the title in a triple threat match! Plus the Patriot and Mr. Wrestling 3 will team up again to face the Hardys. We'll see you then!
I am highly disappointed in you for not pushing Necro Butcher to the moon. He's creepy looking! Push THAT!
Small typo in the Abyss/Markus match. Second Markus should be Abyss. I figured it out though because I'm college educated and an avid reader. Abyss continues his dominance.
Suck it, TAKA. Mr. Wrestling III is a fun gimmick.
I like how the Legacy/Ryder & Jacobs feud has carried on your whole run. Legacy is always the right team to go over though.
MAIN EVENT INTRIGUE! Punk was right to be pissed, and Sheamus still not offering any explanation. Hrm...
Poor Ryder. When will it be his turn to shine!?
Not sure who Mr. Wrestling 3 is, but a clean win over Jeff Hardy is HUGE.
C'mon, Redwood! Do some cool stuff to justify my unhealthy marking out for you.
No problems with Punk getting screwed by the Damned. Keeps Abyss undefeated, I believe. I was so hoping that Punk was going to GTS Sheamus.
What did I just say, Redwood!?
Del Rio, you scoundrel! You have a ton of good midcard talent. I think bringing back your TV Title may be in order.
Glad to see Mark Henry get on the show. He's taken a bit of a backseat to Punk/Sheamus/Raven, so he needed to show everyone why he's the man. Though I don't approve of the black-on-black violence.
Great main event. Surprised Punk/Sheamus managed to work together so well. That goes out the window in the iron man match though!
Patriot/Wrestling 3 going to be a permanent team, or was this just a one off? I think they could be very effective.
No! 5 month neck injury sucks. He's not super enough, apparently.
Glad to see Miz finally get back on the show. Sad to see him become a stain on the mat though. Ouch.
Liked the booking for the main event. Sounded like a great match. One has to wonder though if Punk & Sheamus took too much out of each other to compete with Henry. I see a World's Strongest title retention.
Sheamus/Necro was a fun match. Love Sheamus beating the snot out of him as that's what Necro does best.
No idea who Mr. Wrestling 3 is, but I like the gimmick.
That's a pretty big win for Legacy considering Rhodes has been feuding with Ryder for some time now.
Intrigue in the main event. Can't wait to see Raven/Sheamus/Punk duke it out.
That has to be considered a huge win for Mr. Wrestling 3. Jeff Hardy may be mostly a tag wrestler here, but he's a top star.
Poor Grizzly. Sin Cara needed the win though. I want to see more interaction with the Sin Caras now that they have been unmasked.
Sucks for Punk that he had to take the loss, but Abyss has been on such a roll that it's going to take something special to derail him.
Love the continuation of Sheamus saving Punk. Some sort of tag match coming soon?
Good to see Patriot back in action.
Necro Butcher is going to have a hard time picking a win since his main claim to fame is taking punishment. Hope Alberto keeps climbing up the ladder.
Loved the destruction of JTG.
Punk and Sheamus working together came along a little bit more quickly than I expected. Or maybe I just thought there'd be more turmoil between the two of them during the match. Anyways, look forward to seeing who is the one getting the push to face Henry.
Patriot and Mr. Wrestling 3 make a fun team. I'm digging the hell out of 3.
Sucks for Crazy. I take it the Sin Caras are no longer a stable?
Henry is unstoppable at this point. The only one I can see being able to give him a challenge at this point would be Sheamus.
Speaking of which, good call on the draw. I think it helps Punk a lot to show that he can go the full thirty with Sheamus. I don't expect Henry to drop the strap in the triangle match simply because you could give someone a helluva rub by having them defeat Henry in singles action. I like the triangle match booking though.
What a night we have for you this evening and the crowning match will be Mark Henry defending his Bodyslam Heavyweight Title against CM Punk and Sheamus in a triple threat match.
Jimmy Jacobs vs. Raven
Raven toyed with Jacobs in this match. There were several time that he could've ended it, but neglected to. Until Jacobs started getting in some offense and turning things around. Raven put a quick stop to it with the Evenflow DDT though.
Raven pinned Jimmy Jacobs with the Evenflow DDT in 0:09:26. Rating: *** 1/2

The Patriot & Mr. Wrestling 3 vs. The Hardys (Matt & Jeff)
Tonight was a real test for the Patriot and Mr. Wrestling 3 as the Hardys are quite the seasoned team. It stayed surprisingly even with Mr. Wrestling 3 and the Patriot finding their groove early on. In the end Mr. Wrestling 3 rolled away from a Swanton Bomb and then hit the Island-Plex while Jeff was still stunned for the win.

Main Event Bodyslam Heavyweight Title Match CM Punk vs. Sheamus vs. Mark Henry
This match up started with a staredown between Henry and Sheamus. They really got into each other's face, while Punk yelled "DO SOMETHING!" from the corner. When they finally did do something, it was brawl. Henry and Sheamus traded like to goliaths. All three men looked tremendous and like they could've taken the match at any point, even Punk despite giving up such a size difference to his opponents. Sheamus it the Brogue Kick on Henry, knocking him down. CM Punk came in to make sure he couldn't get the pinfall, but was sent flying over the top rope to the outside. Henry kicked out at two and then hit a low blow to set up the World's Strongest Slam to retain his title.

What a night this evening was. Mark Henry managed to retain his title in the triple threat match and we saw the underdog team of the Patriot and Mr. Wrestling 3 beat the Hardys! Not only that, but since they did beat the Hardys tonight, they will recieve a shot at Legacy and the Bodyslam Tag Team Titles next week! We'll see you there.
Absolutely shocked that the Patriot and Mr. Wrestling 3 went over the Hardys. I'm a big 3 mark so I like it.
Thought for sure that Henry was going over after he pinned Punk. Didn't think you'd have Sheamus take the pinfall since he has built up so much momentum. Definitely hurts Sheamus' chances against Henry in the future.
Welcome to the BPW. Tonight we've got four great matches including a tag team title defense from Legacy as they take on the Patriot and Mr. Wrestling 3. Let's get to the action.
The Blue Meanie vs. "Cold Blood" Matt Hardy
Matt Hardy looked good and had all the right moves, right up until he locked in the Ice Pick (to the best of his ability given Meanie's size) and it was enough to put Meanie is enough pain to submit.
Matt Hardy made The Blue Meanie submit to the Ice Pick in 0:04:19. Rating: * 1/2
"Long Island Iced-Z" Zack Ryder vs. The Miz
The fans were really behind Zack Ryder here tonight and those cheers seemed to fuel the Miz and made him want the win all that much more. Zack had some good offense in the beginning, but the Miz really took this match to the next level all by himself, hitting the Skull Crushing Finale for the win.

Main Event Bodyslam Tag Team Title Match The Patriot & Mr. Wrestling 3 vs. Legacy (Cody Rhodes & Ted DIBiase) (c)
The Patriot and Mr. Wrestling 3 worked surprisingly well as a team given their short history together, but they couldn't match the Legacy when it came to working together as one. DiBiase was able to get the Dream Street for three before Mr. Wrestling could come in and make the save.

After the match Mr. Wrestlig 3 seems obviously frustrated with the Patriot. He helps him to his feet and the Patriot apologizes for a moment before extending his hand to shake. Mr. Wrestling 3 shakes his hand after a moment of consideration... then hits a superkick right to the Patriot's jaw!
What a surprise ending to the evening here tonight! Mr. Wrestling 3 turned on the Patriot after losing to Legacy, dashing their hopes of holding the Bodyslam Tag Team Titles! Join us next week when we'll see Alberto Del Rio in action against Necro Butcher, Sin Cara faces the Monster known as Abyss, Raven takes on Sheamus and Christopher Daniels faces CM Punk in the main event!
Welcome to Bodyslam Pro Wrestling! Tonight we've got four more great matches for your viewing enjoyment including a main event between Christopher Daniels and CM Punk! But right now let's get down to the first match up of the evening.
Necro Butcher vs. Alberto Del Rio
Alberto Del Rio didn't allow Necro Butcher to get in much offense, but when he finally got some in, it was pretty hardcore. He threw him around the outside of the ring and even used the staple gun on Del Rio! He tried to drive Del Rio through the announce table, but was unsuccessful as Del Rio regained control of things, throwing Butcher back in the ring and locking in the Cross Armbreaiker, forcing Butcher to submit.
Alberto Del Rio made Necro Butcher submit to the Cross Armbreaker in 0:08:44. Rating: *** * 1/4
Sin Cara vs. "The Monster" Abyss
Sin Cara couldn't get much going against the Monster. His pure size and strength just overwhelmed Sin Cara and he was never able to recover, eventually getting hit with the Blak Hole Slam.
Abyss pinned Sin Cara with the Black Hole Slam in 0:04:59. Rating: ***
The Patriot's music hits and out he comes, though this week he's sans flag and looks like he just wants to get down to business. He gets on the microphone and calls out Mr. Wrestling 3. He wants to know what last week was all about. He tells Mr. Wrestling 3 to be a man a answer him. Mr. Wrestling 3 takes the microphone from him and it looks like he's going to give him an answer, but instead he hits a superkick square in the jaw, knocking out the Patriot!
"The Celtic Warrior" Sheamus vs. Raven
Sheamus started out strong but Raven was able to use some underhanded trickery to get some offense of his own in. Raven hit the Evenflow DDT, but Sheamus kicked out at 2.5. He had barely recovered when he ducked a clothesline from Raven and nailed the Brogue Kick for three.
Sheamus pinned Raven with the Brogue Kick in 0:08:34. Rating: *** 1/4
Main Event CM Punk vs. "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels
This match had a lot of back and forth with Christopher Daniels taking control early on. He almost hit the Best Moonsault Ever, but Punk got his knees up. In the end Daiels went for an Asai moonsault bodyblock which Punkn countered with a tombstone and then hit his GTS for the win.

"Long Island Iced-Z" Zack Ryder vs. "The Monster" Abyss
Long Island Iced-Z got the fans rallying behind him quickly after the match started. He knew that he was going to need the support of his fans if he stood any chance of defeating the monster known as Abyss. None of it would be enough though. One Black Hold Slam did him in.

After Sheamus came to the ring, out came Alberto Del Rio but he stopped at the announce table and asked for a microphone. He told Sheamus that he was sorry, but tonight's match with him wasn't going to be happening. He was too good for Sheamus and didn't want to sully himself by wrestling someone like Sheamus who wasn't, like him, worth a million dollars. He did say, however, that he managed to find someone else that he was able to hire to wrestle Sheamus and that man was Psicosis.
"The Celtic Warrior" Sheamus vs. Psicosis
Sheamus was not happy with what Del Rio had said, but was more than happy to wrestle Psicosis. Psicosis tried in vain to attack Sheamus with a spinning leg lariat, but SHeamus didn't budge. Psicosis ran into him again, but this time Sheamus caught him and hit the Irish Curse, following it with the Brogue Kick which, of course, absolutely floor Psicosis.

The Patriot vs. Mr. Wrestling 3
The Patriot was all riled up to face Mr. Wrestling 3 here tonight. Mr. Wrestling 3 blasted the Patriot with not one, but TWO superkicks over the past two weeks. They'd begin to exchange and as soon as the Patriot started coming out on top, Mr. Wrestling 3 would take a powder outside. After a few times, the Patriot decided to follow him out which was exactly was Mr. Wrestling 3 wanted. Once they were back in the ring after brawling around on the outside, the action re-entered the ring and the Patriot was able to wrestle conrol of the match back in his favor until Mr. Wrestling 3 pulled something out of his tights and blasted the Patriot with it while the ref wasn't looking causing the Patriot to collapse into a pile in the corner and allowing Mr. Wrestling 3 to hit the Island-Plex to finish the Patriot off.

Main Event #1 Contender Match CM Punk vs. "The Innovator of Violence" Tommy Dreamer
This match started out with a handshake and a crowd that knew that these two wrestlers were going to give it their all for them tonight. These two men respected each other and that respect was going to lead to both men putting their best foot forward. Things started out with a couple good exchanges that ended in stalemates. Both men looked good here this evening, but it was Punk that seemed to shine the brightest. He managed to kick out of two Dreamer DDTs and hit the GTS in the end to get the win.
