Good win for Dreamer.
Looks like we're going to see Miz in a story, which is good news for me.
Great heel stuff by Mahal on the fan.
Great match with Del Rio/Akiyama. I would have thought Akiyama would have won, so that's big for Del Rio.
Samoa Joe! I thought you were going to throw Big Show in there, so I was surprised. Did NOT see the turn on Daniels coming. Makes sense though. He's the most expendable and shows that Raven doesn't mess around.
Miz wins again, making me a happy boy. Poor Necro.
Dreamer is a good first opponent for Mahal's first real feud.
Hrm... figured MCMG would get the next rematch. No real issues with the Hardyz winning though.
Sheamus earns a trip into the triple threat with a pretty dominant win over Raven.
And Punk joins him thanks to Daniels. I wonder how much Punk can trust Daniels...
Welcome to Bodyslam Pro Wrestling! Tonight we'll see Jun Akiyama in action against TAKA Michinoku, Tommy Dreamer takes on Jinder Mahal and in our big main event, a triangle match featuring CM Punk, Sheamus and Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry for the Title! Let's get down to the ring and kick off tonight's action.
After both introductions have been made, Jinder Mahal takes the microphone away from the ring announcer. He offers Tommy Dreamer $10,000 to walk away and take the countout loss. Tommy Dreamer looks around to the fans for their reaction. Their reaction indicates quite clearly that they'd rather see Tommy Dreamer beat the snot out of Jinder Mahal. Dreamer takes the microphone from him and says that he is "a wrestler of the people... and the people say to kick your ass!" And with that Tommy Dreamer boots Mahal in the gut and the ref starts the match
"The Innovator of Violence" Tommy Dreamer vs. Jinder Mahal
The beginning of the match was all Dreamer thanks to that kick to the midsection that caught Jinder off guard. Dreamer kept control, beating Jinder from pillar to post with rights and lefts and chops and kicks. Jinder tried to stumble away out of the ring, but Dreamer followed him out and was able to keep up the offensive onslaught. Jinder was reeling until he caught Dreamer with a HUGE spinebuster onto the concrete. Jinder rolled into the ring and Dreamer followed, but not until the ref had almost counted him out. When he rolled in he was met with stomps. Jinder picked the still dazed Dreamer up and locked in a full nelson. After thrashing him around a little bit he hit the Full Nelson Slam which was just barely enough for a three count.
Jinder Mahal pinned Tommy Dreamer with the Full Nelson Slam in 0:08:25. Rating: *** 1/4
After the match, Mahal continued to stomp on Dreamer yelling that he should've taken the money.
Jun Akiyama vs. TAKA Michinoku
The battle between BPW's two Japanese stars started off with TAKA trying to use his small size and speed to his advantage. Akiyama was able to keep up though and counter and defend from many of TAKA's attacks. THe two put on quite a show for the people in the crowd tonight. The tides solidly turned in Akiyama's favor after hitting a high knee and following it with a rolling clothesline. He then picked TAKA up and finished him off with the Exploder.
Jun Akiyama pinned TAKA Michinoku with the Exploder in 0:08:52. Rating: *** * 1/4
THe Miz makes his way out to the ring and says that tonight he wants a real match. He's still not pleased with the bookers and his last opponents were jokes. He's interrupted by Samoa Joe's music as he dashes to the ring! The Miz seems a little taken aback as he sees who his opponent for the evening is. "The Samoan Submission Machine" Samoa Joe vs. The Miz
The Miz laid the boots to Samoa Joe as soon as he slid into the ring. He picked Joe up and hit a reverse DDT onto his knee and followed it with a quick neckbreaker. He got down and locked in an armbar submission, but Joe is next to the ropes and the Miz is forced to break the hold or be disqualified. He runs at Samoa Joe for a shoulderblock, but gets knocked down himself. Joe grabs him and hits a big back suplex. The Miz scurries to the corner and Joe rushes in with a series of bootscrapes. He drags the Miz to the middle of the ring and locks in the Coquina Clutch forcing the Miz to submit. Samoa Joe made The Miz submit to the Coquina Clutch in 0:03:11. Rating: ***
We're shown the audience where it appears that once more, the Big Show has bought a ringside seat.
Main Event Bodyslam Heavyweight Championship Title Match CM Punk vs. Sheamus vs. Mark Henry (c)
This wasn't CM Punk's first rodeo and everytime he's seen himself in the ring with Mark Henry he's gotten closer to figuring out how to take out the big man, but tonight he also had the big "Celtic Warrior" Sheamus to deal with. Punk was giving up a lot of size to both men and he seemed a little cautious to jump into things as it was him and Sheamus who started off the match in nthe ring. Sheamus started off dominant but Punk managed to hang in there. Mark Henry was very aware when he wasn't in the ring that he didn't need to be a part of the fall to lose the title. All three men saw action in the ring and all three men had their opportunities to get the fall, but couldn't get things finished. Mark Henry seemed to be the most dominant force in the match. It wasn't til the end when Sheamus nailed Henry up side the head with the Brogue Kick that Henry was down for the three count, giving us a new Heavyweight Champion!
[Main Event]: Triangle Match: Sheamus defeated Mark Henry and CM Punk when Sheamus pinned M. Henry with the Brogue Kick in 0:20:34. Rating: *** * (Sheamus won the Bodyslam Heavyweight Title.)
After the match CM Punk extends his hand to shake with the new Heavyweight Champion Sheamus. Sheamus looks at his hand and shakes it. Punk raises Sheamus' arm in victory and goes to leave the ring, but Sheamus calls his attention and CM Punk turns around RIGHT into the Brogue Kick! Sheamus just Brogue Kicked Punk! The fans errupt in a chorus of boos. After this dastardly act, the Big Show gets out of his ringside seat and enters the ring, getting in Sheamus' face! The two jaw at each other for a minute before Sheamus backs up and leaves the ring with his newly won Bodyslam Heavyweight Title.
What an exciting night of wrestling action! After a year Mark Henry has finally been dethroned as the Champion by Sheamus, who showed his true colors by Brogue Kicking CM Punk after the match. Join us next week when we'll see the Debut of Daniel Bryan and The Hardys take on Legacy for the Tag Team Titles. We'll see you then!
Can't say I'm thrilled that Henry lost the title in a triangle match. I was hoping it would be a straight one on one encounter, but that's alright. Sheamus is a fun choice for a new champion, and I didn't see him turning heel immediately after, especially after just having a heel champion for so long. Poor Punk just doesn't seem to have much luck.
