    Honestly, I am not a big fan of Drew Galloway and don't see what everyone else does in him. With that aside, I love the way that you are writing him. Maybe if WWE gave him a chance likes this, I'd possibly start to like him. Keep up the good work, WMS.

    Here’s a few comments on not just your last show, but your fed as a whole. The first thing I notice is the way that the shows are done; I’ve looked around Fan Fic and noticed it’s not just you who is going for the quality of quantity. I like this a lot, very refreshing from the last time I was on here regularly. It’s easy on the eyes and enough information in the shows so that the reader can be hooked. I see that you gave Drew McIntyre the World Title, not too fond of the guy; however you’re making him a whole lot more entertaining than he ever has been in the WWE. I love the way AJ Styles has had to overcome a whole bunch of obstacles to finally get his opportunity, I’m guessing it still won’t be enough though as somehow McIntyre will retain. Maybe Shawn Michaels accidentally costing Styles the match, leading to a future match between the two?

    I love the characters of Alex Shelley and Austin Aries that you have going, both are favourites of mine, especially Shelley so I love seeing them being used well in any fed. I also love the whole NWA vs. Japan series, gives it a real Indy feel, which I’m guessing you want the feel of the promotion to be. That’s it for the general comments of the fed so far, now I’ll leave you with some predictions for “A Fistful Of Matches”.

    Drew Galloway vs. AJ Styles
    Mark Briscoe vs. Christopher Daniels
    Jay Briscoe vs. Jimmy Jacobs
    The Briscoe Brothers vs. Jimmy Jacobs & Christopher Daniels
    Austin Aries & Alex Shelley vs. John Morrison & Jerry Lynn
    Roderick Strong vs. Low Ki
    Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne vs. KENTA & Naomichi Marafuji
    Richie Steamboat vs. Dragon Kid
    Thanks too Fresh Prince

    Mass virility, has made me forget empathy

    It's what we're here for
    To make you feel important
    'cos you knew we were aborted
    It's the same things that were saying all the time
    They may be views, but they'll never be mine...
    -The Cribs -'We Were Aborted'


    NWA: Resurrection - A Fistful of Matches
    Friday July 13, 2012
    Toyota Center - Houston, Texas


    The Crib's frontman Ryan Jarman's screaming vocals drown away and are replaced by the screams of excitement from almost 10,000 rabid Texan fans as a buzzing Toyota Center comes into view. We are treated to a panning camera shot of the arena, which seems gigantic in comparison to the modest George R. Brown Convention Center which hosted NWA's previous iPPV. The voices of Jim 'JR' Ross and Paul Heyman welcome us with the camera now fixed upon the announce team. Ross' voice resonates with passion and excitement with his colleague Paul Heyman also unable to contain himself. The two run through the events with such spontaneity, that it almost makes us forget they're professionals and not your average wrestling fan. Their conversation comes to an abrupt stop when The Alan Parsons Project's 'Sirius' roars over the personal announcement system, bringing the Toyota Center crowd to their feet. Richie Steamboat walks out to a huge reaction from the crowd, with the son of the legendary Ricky Steamboat having quickly gained a big crowd following due to a mixture of his impressive displays and his famous father. Steamboat looks to be having the time of his life, as he high fives a few young fans at ringside before taking his place in the ring.

    Steamboat looks ready and focused, eager to give NWA a winning start to the NWA vs. Japan Series II. His opponent is Dragon Gate's high-flyer Dragon Kid, who comes running out from the entrance ramp, full of energy and just as eager to do his country good. Kid isn't well known by the American audience, but gets a decent enough reception as he poses on the turnbuckles, before impressively flipping backwards to the canvas, landing on his feet. Kid rips off a Dragon Gate vest, to show off his all green ring attire. Paul Heyman comments that it's ironic Richie Steamboat is facing Dragon Kid, giving he's the son of 'The Dragon', as the two men lock up and get the first match of the night underway!


    Opening Match
    NWA vs. Japan Series II Match 1
    Richie Steamboat vs. Dragon Kid


    Summary: Steamboat has impressed the NWA fans in his short time with his speed and agility, but Dragon Kid is on another planet as far as that area goes. Steamboat suffers in the early goings as Kid just has an answer for every move his opponent is throwing at him, seeming one step ahead of a stunned Steamboat. The NWA stalwart attempts an hurricunrana but Kid rolls through before catapulting Steamboat into the turnbuckles, nipping quickly back up to his feet to meet a dazed Steamboat with a reverse hurricunrana, keeping Steamboat's legs hooked in, going close to a quick three count. Steamboat burst out and returned to his feet, trying to slow down the speedy Dragon Kid but his opponent had other plans. Kid ducked the forearm attempt before running off the ropes and back towards Steamboat, sweeping him off his feet with a beautiful headscissors takedown before twisting mid-move and planting Steamboat's face into the canvas with a nasty tilt-a-whirl DDT. Kid hooked the leg looking optimistic but Steamboat got the arm up at 2-and-a-half with fans showing their delight that the match would continue, having quickly got into things.

    The match was in danger of turning into the 'Dragon Kid Show' until Steamboat found an opening, ducking as Kid looked set to connect with a tiger feint kick. Dragon Kid landed back on his feet on the ring apron but was quickly sent hurling towards the floor outside, as Steamboat connected with a jawbreaker, crushing Kid's face into the ropes before sending him crashing backwards. Steamboat composed himself, catching his breath as Kid got back to his feet on the outside. Steamboat was instinctive throwing himself over the ropes before twisting in the air gracefully, finally landing on Kid and taking him to the floor. Steamboat slowly got back to his feet, but with the crowd on his side, he began to take control of the match and deal with the troublesome Dragon Kid.

    Finish: The finish to an intense opening match-up comes around the ten minute mark: Steamboat gets the better of Kid, sending him crashing into the turnbuckles with a brutal counter to a headscissors attempt - Kid appeared to have just about connected the move but Steamboat was able to put the brakes on and instead dart his opponent into the turnbuckles. Steamboat took to the top rope, stalking his opponent waiting for Kid to return to his feet before soaring from the top, going for the crossbody. Kid ducked and rolled out of the way but Steamboat saw this out of the corner of his eye and was able to roll upon his landing and return to his feet, only to be met with a superkick attempt by Kid! Steamboat caught the left leg of Kid and smirked but his cockiness cost him as Kid connected with a step-up enziguri, using his right foot to smack Steamboat round the side of the head. Steamboat staggered backwards towards the turnbuckles, using the turnbuckles to keep himself propped up. Kid took advantage, following him over before quickly placing him on the top turnbuckles with his back facing the canvas. Kid immediately jumps on the shoulders of Steamboat before dragging him down towards the canvas with a top-rope reverse hurricunrana...

    Steamboat avoided being drilled into the canvas with an exceptional counter, brilliantly using his momentum to roll through upon landing, avoiding impact and putting Kid into a pinning predicament: One...Two...Th-No! Kid breaks the pin, but Steamboat keeps a tight hold of Kid's waist before rolling backwards once more, dragging himself and Kid up before executing a huge German Suplex, bridging the pin: One...Two...Three! Yes!

    Winner: Richie Steamboat (via Bridging German Suplex - pinfall)

    Aftermath: Steamboat finally breaks the bridging pin, but doesn't immediately celebrate his win, flat out on the canvas exhausted by his efforts. Moments later, he returns to his feet with arm raised triumphantly before helping Dragon Kid to his feet. The two men shake hands after an explosive battle, with both men getting a standing ovation from a respectful crowd, full of appreciation for a fantastic opening match. We see one more shot of Steamboat, who celebrates opening the score for NWA.

    Backstage, Todd Grisham is standing alongside Austin Aries and Alex Shelley. Shelley and Aries both look focused and full of intensity, as Grisham asks the duo for their thoughts ahead of their match against Lynn and Morrison later tonight. Aries takes the microphone first, once again wearing his 'Saviour of Pro-Wrestling' t-shirt, addressing the matter.

    Austin Aries: "My thoughts? It's real simple Grisham. I'm going out there tonight, to fight for a cause. That cause is professional wrestling. Me and Alex Shelley here are becoming the last of a dying breed. Tonight, is all about changing that. What I'm thinking right now, is strategy. What way best am I going to take back what is ours? This is professional wrestling, it belongs to the Austin Aries, the Alex Shelley's of this business. I'll be damned if we're going to let it fall into the hands of the washed-up has-beens like Jerry Lynn, like Terry Funk who just don't know when their time is up. I'll be damned if we let this industry be tarnished by no-good punks like John Morrison who cares more about how he looks than how he wrestles. Well let me tell you something if you're listening to this Morrison you piece of crap, you put down your hair brush and make-up, and listen to a real wrestler for one second. I'm going to make it my duty that you don't have those pretty-boy looks to fall back upon, maybe then you'll concentrate on being a wrestler instead of a sex symbol."

    Aries stops, with his partner Alex Shelley looking on intently. Shelley takes over from Aries, with fire in his eyes and plenty on his mind.

    Alex Shelley: "You see Todd - on one side you have Austin Aries - the 'Saviour of Pro-wrestling' alongside the 'New Star of NWA', the 'Sexy Beast', the 'future of this industry', 'face for television', 'Mr. Charisma', 'Larger than Life', 'Talent on Loan from God', Alex Shelley and we represent all that is good with this industry, we are what professional wrestling is, and should always be about. Opposite these two greats stand John Morrison and Jerry Lynn, who are not only sleep-inducting, absent of charisma, mindless dullards but they also represent what is wrong with this business, as Austin has already pointed out. I want to let the whole world know, that Alex Shelley is a man who gets what he wants, when he wants and tonight you can say goodbye to your precious little heroes because a pair of real wrestlers are going to put an end to their facade, and return wrestling to its past greatness. You can quote me on that Tim…Todd, whatever."

    Shelley puts emphasis on the word 'greatness' before finally ending his tirade. He and Aries walk off, having said all they needed to say, leaving behind Grisham as we segue to ringside ahead of the second match of the evening.

    ***

    Jim Ross reminds us of Steamboat's victory over Dragon Kid, and how NWA are in the lead in the NWA vs. Japan Series II. Heyman interjects saying that the Japanese are more than talented enough to turn things round. The pair are interrupted by Ozzy Osbourne's 'I Don't Wanna Stop' which introduces the popular and energetic duo of Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston who sprint to the ring with huge smiles across their faces. The pair springboard from the ring apron into the ring and await their opponents, looking confident and showing no signs of pressure.

    Twista's "Art & Life" replaces their theme and is met with a positive response from those who remember KENTA's impressive performances last month at Flair for the Gold Night I and II. KENTA is accompanied by his partner Naomichi Marufuji, with Paul Heyman educating us of the fact that the pair are as good as they come, having won some of the most coveted titles in Japan, both as singles and tag team performers. The two men enter the ring staring down their opponents for tonight, KENTA and Marufuji nod at their opponents as a sign of respect rather than shaking hands before the contest. KENTA and Kofi Kingston start things off as the bell rings and the second of three NWA versus Japan matches begins, with a jam-packed Toyota Center ready for another thrilling contest.


    Second Match
    NWA vs. Japan Series II Match 2 (1-0)
    Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne vs. Naomichi Marufuji & KENTA


    Summary: KENTA stands out in the opening stages of the matches, looking the most impressive of the four men. Looking to continue his unbeaten streak in NWA, KENTA goes close in the early goings foiling Kingston's springboard attempt by catching him mid-air before punishing him with a scoop powerslam. KENTA continued the attack, displaying more aggression than he did in his two previous matches in the company. He whipped Kofi into his team's corner, attacking him with a barrage of chops and forearm strikes, leaving his opponent slumped in the corner. KENTA tagged in Marafuji, allowing the crowd their first glimpse of the star. Marufuji did not disappoint immediately causing Kingston trouble, nearly getting a quick pinfall with a big missile dropkick, connecting with the front of Kingston's face. Marufuji and KENTA attempted to bully their opponent but Kofi stunned Marufuji, twisting out of his capture suplex attempt, before nailing him with his finishing move, Trouble in Paradise! Kofi was too exhausted to make the pin but it did buy him enough time to crawl over to his corner and make the hot tag to Evan Bourne, who was raring to go.

    Bourne turned the match on it's head, springboarding into the ring to take Marujuji down with a huge heel kick, before running to the ring apron and delivering a low dropkick to the knees of KENTA, sending him flying off the ring apron, smashing his face off the apron as he landed. Bourne was as full of desire as he was energy, waiting for Marufuji to return to his feet before snapping him into the canvas with a quick cradle suplex, Marufuji narrowly escaping before the count of three. Marufuji scrambled to his feet only to be taken back down by Bourne with a roundhouse kick. Bourne was blindsighted however, as KENTA came running into the ring, knocking him down with a flying forearm to put an end to his run of momentum.

    Finish: The match spiraled out of control with all four men trading blows. Bourne and Marafuji found themselves brawling on the ring apron, while in the ring the legal men took their fight to the corner of the ring with Kingston getting the better of KENTA. Kofi continued on the offensive, knocking his opponent silly with lefts and rights, taking a couple of steps back before delivering a huge running kneelift to wind KENTA. Kofi placed KENTA on the top turnbuckles, hitting him with more lefts and rights before joining him on the top turnbuckle. Meanwhile, Bourne is able to knock Marufuji off the ring apron and to the ground. Bourne runs the ring apron before leaping off and targeting his opponent with a stunning Shooting Star Crossbody but Marufuji was able to move at the last split second, leaving Bourne to crash and burn.

    Marufuji sighed in relief before seeing his partner was in peril. He rolled back into the ring before running across to attack Kingston, just in time to stop him from executing his superplex attempt. Marufuji chops and punches away at the back of Kingston before catching him in electric chair position, and moving him away from the turnbuckles. Marufuji shows great strength by continuing to keep Kingston lifted in the position as KENTA composes himself on the top rope, regaining his senses before flying from the top rope and into the direction of Kofi, connecting with a Doomsday Busaiku Knee Kick! The crowd voices their amazement at the move but the 'oohs' soon turn into groans of despair as Kingston lands nastily, thudding off the canvas with KENTA crashing alongside him. KENTA crawls over to his battered opponent, draping his arm over his chest prompting the referee to make the three count for an assertive victory.

    Winners: KENTA & Naomichi Marufuji (via Doomsday Busaiku Knee Kick - pinfall)

    Aftermath: Following the match Marufuji helped his partner to his feet but KENTA pushed him away and asked for a microphone from ringside. In broken English, KENTA declared himself worthy of a championship shot saying he has beat everyone in his path so far, and could beat anyone else in the company. KENTA says he will be watching AJ Styles and Drew Galloway closely tonight, and promises that the next time he comes to America, it will be to fight for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.

    We are treat to a quick video package highlighting the feud between The Briscoe Brothers and the team of Jimmy Jacobs and Christopher Daniels that has been brewing the last few weeks as both teams aim to become the number one contenders to the NWA World Tag Team Championship. John Bradshaw Layfield's announcement of the Three Stage Challenge is recapped before the recap comes to an end, we see a shot of a steel cage hanging over the ring, ready to come into play if a third match is required. Brian Kendrick and Paul London, the tag champions, join Heyman and Ross at ringside and will be providing guest commentary for the challenge, as well as scouting their potential opponents with the winner of the challenge earning a title shot against Londrick at the next iPPV, Fear and Loathing.

    ***

    The now four-men commentary team are interrupted by Walls of Jericho "The Haunted" signalling the arrival of Jimmy Jacobs and Christopher Daniels. The two men wear frowns upon their faces as they charge down to the ring, looking in disgust at the fans at ringside. They walk around the ring and to the commentary table where they exchange insults with London and Kendrick, with the champion's retorts being audible over the headsets. Jacobs stands at ringside as Daniels enters the ring waiting for his opponent.

    Daniels wait is short as cheers echo around the arena in response to Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Gimme Back My Bullets" and seconds later out walks Mark Briscoe and his brother Jay Briscoe behind him. The two brothers look ready for action, with Mark Briscoe pointing at Daniels in the ring, before giving him a 'slit-throat' sign. The popular duo staredown Londrick at the commentary table with London and Kendrick referring to the brother's as 'dumb and dumber' putting them down on commentary as Mark joins Daniels in the ring, with Jay Briscoe waiting at ringside to keep an eye on Jimmy Jacobs. The two men in the ring trade insults, talking trash for a moment before Mark slaps the taste out of Daniels' mouth and the bell rings to signal the start of the match.


    Third Match
    Three Stage Challenge - Stage One
    Christopher Daniels vs. Mark Briscoe


    Summary: Daniels tries to take Briscoe down with a waist lock, but Briscoe slips out before wrestling Daniels to the ground, trying to lock in a quick headlock. Daniels escapes his grip, and the two men end up back on their feet with Daniels throwing Briscoes into the ropes, only for Briscoes to come rebounding back and catching a waiting Daniels with a swinging neckbreaker. Briscoe dictated the match from this point, punishing Daniels before going close to securing a lead in the three stage challenge courtesy of a fisherman buster with Daniels narrowly getting his arm up at two-and-three-quarters. Daniels looked on his feet, as Briscoe wailed on him with punches in the corner. His attention was diverted however by Jimmy Jacobs on the ring apron who was quickly dragged down by Mark Briscoe, which sparked a brawl between the two. Mark watched on as the referee called for officials to break up the fight, banning the two from ringside in the process. With the referee's back turned Daniels took advantage, salvaging the split second by delivering a low-blow to Mark Briscoe which would help create a turn-around in the match. Daniels started to control the pace of the match, going desperately close with a Reverse STO, stunned when Mark got his foot on the rope, denying an almost certain three count. Daniels looked the likelier of the two to get the win as the match neared the ten minute point.

    Finish: Daniels goes for the kill, attempting to lock Mark in for the Angel's Wings but Mark blocks and is able to counter, throwing Daniels over his shoulder before staggering across the ring, trying to get a breather. Daniels picks himself back up and goes back on the attack, kicking Briscoe in the gut before nailing him with an impressive spin-out powerbomb, putting a quick end to his revival. Daniels signals that it's over as climbs the turnbuckles, taking time to talk trash to the tag team champions before leaping backwards with the Best Moonsault Ever, only to land sternum-first into the raised knees of Briscoe! Briscoe made the most of Daniels' time wasting as he returned to his feet and was able to then connect with his finishing move, the Mark-Out to put him and his brother Jay 1-0 up in the Three Stage Challenge, needing only one more win to get a shot at the titles.

    Winner: Mark Briscoe (via Mark-Out - pinfall)

    Aftermath: Mark rolls out of the ring, holding his back showing signs of of a tough and grueling match-up. He goes straight to the back to see his brother Jay and give him some last minute advice, wasting no time to celebrate. Daniels finally comes back to in the ring, infuriated he put his team at a disadvantage in the series, putting huge pressure on his partner Jimmy Jacobs to win the next match and take it to a third match that would be contested under the fifteen-foot steel cage.

    Backstage, the beautiful Candice Michelle is standing by with Jerry Lynn and John Morrison. Candice thanks the two men for joining her at this time, before asking them for their thoughts ahead of their match with Austin Aries and Alex Shelley, a little later tonight. Jerry Lynn answers her, calm and collected in his answer.

    Jerry Lynn: "I've spent most of my life in this business and I've seen a lot of loudmouths come and go, some talented; some not so talented. Alex Shelley and Austin Aries have bags of talent, I'd be lying if I said otherwise but one think they lack is respect Candice. You can have all the talent in the world, but if you have zero respect, in the end it's going to bite you on the ass. My partner for tonight John Morrison is a fine example of a guy with as much respect as he has talent."

    John Morrison: "I can actually relate with Aries and Shelley as I was very much the same way when I first started in the business. I was a young punk, who barely had respect for myself, never mind anyone else, but I'm proud to say I'm a different man today. I'm not going to get preachy, that ain't me but if Aries and Shelley aren't willing to listen, then me and Jerry will just do things the old-fashioned way, and teach them with a beating."

    Jerry Lynn: "And tonight, there's going to be a beating. This ain't going to be no normal wrestling match, I personally can't wait to get my hands on Aries and Shelley. The time for talking has come and gone, now it's time to fight."

    Lynn looks intense as he walks off with Morrison following on, the two men clearly sick of talking, and wanting nothing more than to shut up Aries and Shelley. Candice takes us back to ringside where Jay Briscoe and Jimmy Jacobs have returned to the ring ready for the second, and perhaps final match of the Three Stage Challenge.

    ***

    Jay Briscoe and Jimmy Jacobs pace around the ring moments away from the second match in the Three Stage Challenge. Jim Ross reminds us that The Briscoe's are 1-0 up in the challenge, and if they win this match they win the challenge, and a third match won't be needed, meaning the steel cage won't come into play. Paul London and Brian Kendrick say that they haven't been impressed with what they have seen so far, and say it doesn't matter which teams win because they're both resigned to the same fate - losing to the best team in the business. Back in the ring, Jacobs and Briscoe finally lock up and the bell rings.


    Fourth Match
    Three Stage Challenge - Stage Two
    Jimmy Jacobs vs. Jay Briscoe


    Summary: Jimmy Jacobs starts the better of the two men, desperate to keep his team in title contention. Jacobs beats away at Briscoe, whipping him into the corner before hitting him with a huge running dropkick. before taking his opponent down with a snap suplex. Jacobs was like a man possessed as he controlled the early goings, hitting Briscoe with a number of his signature moves but Jay wouldn't stop down. Jacobs started to feel frustrated, arguing with the official after Briscoe managed to get the arm up before the three following a nasty release powerbomb, delivered with all of Jacobs' might and force. Jacobs went to the top rope, before launching himself off going for a senton but Jay rolled out of the way at the last split second, leaving Jacobs to crash and burn.

    Briscoe makes the most of his opportunity to get himself back into the match, returning to his feet before Jacobs, before going on the offensive: nailing Jacobs with a flurry of kicks and chops before sweeping him off his feet with an arched big boot. Jay looked down at his opponent before picking him up and hoisting him onto his shoulders, taking a few steps back before connecting with a delightful Musclebuster, sending Jacobs cranium first into the canvas. Briscoe hooked the leg, confident it was worthy of a three, only to be shocked when Jacobs was able to get his arm up a millisecond before three. Jay started to get a little hot-headed now as he looked to hit one more big move to secure the victory for him and his big brother.

    Finish: Both men upped the pace in the final few minutes as the match reached it's conclusion, full of near falls and reversals. Jay went for the Jay Driller but Jacobs countered, before hooking Briscoe's neck looking for the Contra Code. Jacobs was able to set off but Briscoe countered, darting Jacobs into the turnbuckles before rolling him up from behind: One...Two...Th-No! Jacobs bursts out and scrambles back to his feet but Jay is too fast for him, and tricks him with an inside cradle: One...Two...Thr-No! Jacobs survives once again, kicking out and returning to his feet, more hesitant this time. He charges back at Jay with a clothesline but Jay ducks before kicking Jacobs in the gut, and going for the Jay Driller - no! Jacobs reverses, blocking the move before sweeping Jay's legs from underneath him and going for a bridged pin: One...Two...Thre-No! Jay shows amazing strength and adversity, bridging out before returning to his feet to kick Jacobs in the gut once more before finally executing the Jay Driller! One...Two...Three! The Briscoe Brothers earn a championship match against Londrick, needing just two matches to win the Three Stage Challenge.

    Winner: Jay Briscoe - (via Jay Driller pinfall)

    Aftermath: Jay Briscoe doesn't even get time to celebrate his victory as the tag team champions, Paul London and Brian Kendrick come slithering in the ring, and attack one-half of their future challengers, stamping on him as he lies exhausted on the floor. Jimmy Jacobs crawls out of the ring, and cowers backstage while Brian Kendrick signals for the cage to come down. The cage is already half-way down as he makes the signal, with Ross fuming at ringside saying the champions have had this attack planned, calling them 'conniving'. The cage comes all the way down just as Mark Briscoe rushes from backstage to try and aid his younger brother.

    Brian Kendrick attacks Jay Briscoe in the ring, hitting him with Slicedbread #2, as Paul London taunts Mark Briscoe from inside the cage, telling him they're going to decimate his 'baby brother'. Mark Briscoe has heard enough and he begins to climb the cage, full of rage. He barely makes it over the cage before he's attacked with London and Kendrick waiting for him, like a pack of wolves. The two climb the cage and meet Briscoe half-way attacking him with punches and kicks as he was perched half-way over the cage. The two drag Mark over the cage before throwing him from the top all the way down to the canvas where he falls on-top of an already beaten and bruised Jay Briscoe. The tag champions pose on top of the cage, as the Toyota Center erupts in boos. London isn't done with the attack as he tip toes across the ropes, using the cage to support him as he makes his way to the top turnbuckle. He smiles sadistically before launching himself from the top turnbuckle connecting with the London Calling, connecting with both men. He helps himself back up immediately and rejoins Kendrick who is sitting on the cage, shouting abuse at an irate Texas crowd. We see one final shot of London and Kendrick posing with their tag team champions, high above their fallen soon-to-be challengers. Jim Ross blasts the champions, scolding them for their heinous act and labels them 'thugs' as we go to a video package hyping tonight's championship main event between Drew Galloway and AJ Styles.
    ***


    The video package comes to an end, and we return to ringside at the Toyota Center. JR recalls the events that just transpired with Paul Heyman saying the Briscoe Brother's won't take to it lightly, saying the feud between the two teams could shake the foundations of NWA Resurrection. Their interchange is interrupted by Pantera's "5 Minutes Alone" which welcomes out Roderick Strong. Strong walks onto the entrance ramp, pausing momentarily to take in the 10,000 cheering fans in the Toyota Center. Strong doesn't look intimidated, not losing his focus as he charges toward the ring with the knowledge that this match will determine the winner of the NWA vs. Japan Series II.

    Standing in his way is Low Ki, who is met with a warm response from sections of the crowd familiar with one of the hardest hitters in professional wrestling today. 50 Cent and Tupac's "Realist Killers" introduces Low Ki who appears devoid of any emotion. He snarls at fans ringside who try to high five him, before finally entering the ring and going toe-to-toe with Strong. Ki simply stares at Strong who to his credit doesn't appear to be intimidated by Ki's tactics. The two slap hands rather than shake before locking up, the bell ringing and the deciding Series II match underway.


    Fifth Match
    NWA vs. Japan Series II Match 3 (1-1)
    Roderick Strong vs. Low Ki


    Summary: Low Ki is synonymous with stiff strikes, and this match was no different as he tortured Strong from the start with a number of strikes, using his 'educated' kicks to his advantage. Ki targeted the knees of Strong, kicking away with his game plan being if he works on the knees, Strong won't be able to have the strength in his legs to utilize the variety of back-breakers he is famed for. Strong replies with chops to the chest but Ki chops back, faster and more powerful before going right back to the legs, connecting with a straight kick to the right calf of Strong. Strong winced in pain with Ki taking full advantage, repeatedly kicking another three times until finally Strong dropped to one knee. Ki sized his opponent up, before kicking him right in the chest. Strong screamed in pain as he tried to get back to his feet but Ki came back at him, with more kicks. Ki went for a huge roundhouse kick to the midsection but Strong saw it coming, and for the first time in the match was able to block. Ki dealt with it impressively however, hitting Strong with a Mongolian chop, sending him staggering and releasing Ki's leg from his grip. Ki took advantage, Irish whipping Strong into the opposite corner, not giving him a second to recover before rushing at him with a cartwheel and connecting with a jumping elbow while mid-air. Strong slumped in the corner with Ki standing over his fallen opponent, roaring in satisfaction.

    Finally, Strong caught Ki out. Ki went for a springboard roundhouse kick but Strong displayed fantastic strength, catching Ki by his leg and hoisting him up. Strong's legs buckled slightly but he still managed to throw Ki over his head with a beautiful belly-to-belly suplex. Strong returned to his feet, limping slightly and showing signs of damage to his legs courtesy of Ki's offence. Strong bided his time, and with a careful methodical approach worked his way back into the match, and only moments later he was inches away from victory with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Strong once again grimaced after delivering the move, and his limp became more visible as the match weathered on.

    Finish: The match upped in intensity as it continued, with Ki being able to execute a few more kicks to Strong's leg, with Strong's limping providing a bullseye for Ki to target. Strong was valiant however, fighting through the pain barrier and resisting all that Ki threw (or kicked) at him. Strong looked to be on his last legs as Ki connected with two huge straight kicks to the injured calf, bringing Strong down to both knees before one quick roundhouse kick to the chest, knocking him down completely. The combination of kicks look to have finally tired Strong out as Ki climbed to the top turnbuckle. Ki let out a howl before leaping from the top, looking to connect with the Warrior's Way, but Strong rolled out of the way at the last split second! Ki landed awkwardly on his ankles, wincing in pain upon impact. He limped into the path of Strong who had now returned to his feet. Strong kicked Ki in the gut before setting him up for the Gibson Driver, to try and get the win for NWA, but his legs buckled half-way through lifting Ki up and he was unable to execute the move, dropping down to one knee with the earlier damage to his leg proving too much for him. Ki slipped out of Strong's hold and took advantage of Strong's fallen position, mounting him from behind before locking in the Dragon Clutch! Strong was left trapped in the middle of the ring, with nowhere to go he has no other choice... Strong taps out! Low Ki makes it a 2-1 victory for Japan in the NWA vs. Japan Series II.

    Winner: Low Ki (via Dragon Clutch - submission)

    Aftermath: Ki immediately relinquishes the hold, celebrating his win while hobbling around the ring. He waits for Strong to return to his feet, with the two men limping towards one another, showing signs of the absolute battle they had contested. Ki offers his hand as a sign of respect and Strong complies. Ki leaves the ring, his mission accomplished while Strong looks on despondently.

    We see a split-screen of champion and challenger ahead of tonight's main event match-up. Drew Galloway and John Bradshaw Layfield are both sat in silence with Drew taping up his wrists, staring at Layfield who looks a million miles away, deep in thought. AJ Styles and Shawn Michaels meanwhile are deep in conversation, with Michaels sharing some words of advice with Styles. Styles nods along, looking to be fully appreciative of the fact he has a legend in his corner, rooting for him. The split-screen ends, with the contrast abundantly clear for all to see.

    ***

    At ringside, Jim Ross and Paul Heyman are full of excitement as the penultimate match of the evening is upon us. Silence greets the Toyota Center for a mere moment before the sound of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's "Weapon of Choice" introducing Alex Shelley, who walks onto the entrance ramp looking smug as the arena fills with boos and jeers aimed at his direction. Shelley pauses on the entrance ramp and waits for his partner as his music is replaced by Marylin Manson's "Personal Jesus" which welcomes out Austin Aries, who is equally as unpopular as his partner. The two men walk down to the ring, Shelley sporting a shit-eating grin while Aries looks indifferent. They take their place in the ring, with Shelley appearing to share a joke to Aries who doesn't budge or change facial expressions.

    Fear Factory's "Replica" blasts over the personal announcement system with the fans voicing their appreciation for Jerry Lynn and John Morrison, who come out united. The duo don't care about entrances, they've came to fight and to finally shut up the pairing of Aries and Shelley. They hit the ring, with the heel team immediately getting in their faces. Lynn and Morrison keep calm and take their corner as Shelley and Aries talk trash in their direction. The referee signals the start of the match with Austin Aries and John Morrison starting for their teams respectively. The bell rings.


    Sixth Match
    Jerry Lynn & John Morrison vs. Austin Aries & Alex Shelley


    Summary: Aries and Morrison fly into the lock-up with Aries quickly gaining the upper hand, getting his opponent in a front face lock. Morrison showed great strength, forcing Aries into the ropes before slipping out of the face lock, moving behind Aries and catching him with a roll-up for a quick two count. Aries cautiously returns to his feet before locking up once more with Morrison, but Morrison is too quick for his opponent, dropping out of the lock up before whipping Aries into the ropes and sweeping him off his feet with a big leg lariat. Morrison doesn't take a second to rest or admire his work, instead returning to the attack, trying to wear down a restless Aries. Aries works his way back to his feet and tries to work out of Morrison's chinlock, but Morrison is one step forward, dropping back before catching Aries with a backslide for another quick count. Aries scrambles to his feet and tags out to Shelley who tries to tame a motivated Morrison.

    Shelley and Aries finally work their way into the match, Shelley proving too slippery for Morrison to handle, catching him with a rake to the eye to gain an unfair disadvantage before opportunistically hitting him with a hip toss followed by a stiff dropkick to the back, making sure to keep him over in his and Aries corner, to try and tactically take him out of the match. Aries tagged in with the advantage now on his side, bullying Morrison with stiff shots before hitting him with a huge spinebuster, which only got him a two count. The quick tags continued until finally Morrison took advantage of Shelley's lapse in concentration, wrestling his way out of Shelley's hold before leveling him with a mule kick to the jaw, sending Shelley staggering back, giving enough time for Morrison to make the hot tag to Jerry Lynn who was full of fire and made the most of being the fresh man as he entered the match-up.

    Lynn swept Shelley back down with a huge dropkick before knocking Aries off the apron with a flying forearm. Lynn turned around, ducking a lariat attempt by Shelley before connecting with a huge swinging neckbreaker. Shelley returned to his feet once more with Lynn more than ready for him as he connected with a huge tornado DDT. Lynn hooked the leg but Shelley budged out before three. Lynn dragged Shelley up before connecting with three huge chops across his chest, leaving a huge red hand print on Shelley's chest. Lynn went for a big forearm to knock Shelley down, but just as he sized him up, Austin Aries rushed the ring taking out Lynn with a massive Yakuza Kick, clearly agitated by Lynn hitting him off the apron moments earlier. Aries took his place back on the ring apron as both Lynn and Shelley rested on the canvas, with the match very much a stalemate.

    Finish: Shelley and Lynn were once again the legal men as the matched entered it's concluding stages. Shelley attempted Slicedbread #2 but Lynn countered, throwing Shelley over his shoulder however Shelley landed on his feet gracefully before taking Lynn down with a lungblower. Shelley ran the ropes before springboarding off with a Lionsault attempt, only for Morrison to re-enter the ring and drag Lynn out of the way. Shelley landed on his feet once again, mockingly bowing before the audience only to have his head nearly taken off his shoulders as Morrison connected with the Flying Chuck Kick. The match broke out of control as Aries re-entered, clubbing Morrison from behind with a huge clothesline, knocking him to the floor. Lynn started to stir, and Aries aimed to take advantage, dragging Lynn back up before blasting him with lefts and rights. Aries worked behind Lynn and went for a German but Lynn put on the brakes, attempting to block Aries from connecting.

    Alex Shelley came back to, with Aries showing great strength to keep Lynn restrained. Lynn tries to fight out but Aries gets him back in position for a German Suplex, as Lynn tries to elbow his way out of it. Shelley sees the situation and lines up a superkick but at the last split second Lynn wriggled free, ducking the kick, leaving Shelley's raised right boot to connect with the chin of Austin Aries. Shelley looked down at Aries for a split second before turning around to Lynn. Lynn tried to roll-up Shelley for a pin but Shelley blocked and delivered a hard kick to the chest of Lynn. Shelley laughed in the face of Lynn as he dragged him back up to his feet, locking him in about to connect with Shellshock but John Morrison returned to his feet, hitting a superkick of his own to the face of Shelley who fell into the hands of Lynn. Lynn was groggy but he had enough left in the tank to finish Shelley off, connecting with a sickening Cradle Piledriver before hooking the leg for a victory that got all of the Toyota Center on their feet cheering.

    Winners: Jerry Lynn & John Morrison (via Cradle Piledriver - pinfall)

    Aftermath: Lynn and Morrison celebrate their win, embracing before holding one another's arms high in front of an appreciative Texas crowd. The two leave united, heading to the back after a fantastic performance and a win to match. Austin Aries comes back to and drags Alex Shelley back to his feet. The two are groggy but get in a shouting match with Austin Aries furious, blaming Shelley for the loss. Shelley laughs in disbelief with Aries screaming in his face "this is no joke, it's no laughing matter," before shoving him hard causing Shelley to land square on his ass. Shelley looks up furious as Aries leaves him behind, walking up the entrance ramp as Shelley looks on. Shelley picks himself up, looking rather embarrassed as Jim Ross speculates it's the last we've seen of Shelley and Aries as a partnership.

    A video airs to promote next month’s iPPV entitled Fear and Loathing, which will be the first NWA: Resurrection event to take place outside of Texas. The Las Vegas show is promoted heavily in the video with many of NWA’s stars featuring in the video, showing them at some of Vegas’ most notable spots. Londrick and The Briscoes are brawling outside the MGM arena, while Richie Steamboat is seen taking flight off a blackjack table onto a host of security officials at Caesar’s Palace. Finally we see a smiling John Bradshaw Layfield at a roulette table, cigar in mouth as he watches a ball spin around the table. The table fades away into a still image promoting the event: ‘NWA Resurrection presents Fear and Loathing – Las Vegas – August 17 only on iPPV!’ as a voiceover proclaims that NWA takes over Vegas for one night only.

    ***

    Ross and Heyman discuss Fear and Loathing and question who will be the World Heavyweight Champion going into Vegas. A tale of the tape shows both men’s stats going into the main event match, with the discussion now moving onto the men accompanying each man – John Bradshaw Layfield and Shawn Michaels. Layfield’s reign as general manager is mentioned, with Ross fearing that Layfield may have an ace up his sleeve “no pun intended,” as Heyman comments on the ‘main event’ feel that is surrounding the Toyota Center, moments away from the championship match-up.

    The Toyota Center erupts in cheers as Fort Minor's "Remember the Name" hits the personal announcement system, and out walks AJ Styles, who appears to be impervious to the crowd reaction, instead full of focus and determination as he approaches the ring, with Shawn Michaels alongside him. The two men enter the ring, with Styles throwing off his hood and posing in front of the 10,000 strong crowd, all eagerly behind him. Shawn Michaels whispers a few words of advice in his ear as Styles awaits his opponent, ready for one of the biggest matches of his life.

    Styles’ music comes to an abrupt end as he, Michaels and the rest of the crowd wait in anticipation for a few brief seconds until finally Sharman's Harvest's "Broken Dreams" bellows throughout the arena, signalling the arrival of NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Drew Galloway. Cheers are suddenly replaced by deafening boos as Galloway walks into sight, standing on the entrance ramp and looking to the heavens, before returning his sight to Styles, his challenger in the ring. Alongside Galloway is the brash, loud John Bradshaw Layfield who is telling everyone in earshot that ‘Galloway is King’. Galloway finally walks down the entrance ramp, and joins Styles in the ring. Layfield enters alongside him, shouting words of hatred at the direction of Styles and Michaels, who managed to keep calm and rise above Layfield’s tactics.

    The two men are introduced separately, with Layfield and Michaels exiting the ring. Galloway kisses his championship before giving it to the official, as the arena chants the name of challenger AJ Styles in unison. Styles and Galloway stare at one another, before pacing around the ring and finally throwing themselves into a tie-up as the bell rings and our NWA World Heavyweight Championship main event gets underway!


    Main Event
    NWA World Heavyweight Championship Match
    Drew Galloway (c) vs. AJ Styles


    Summary: Galloway gets the better of Styles in the tie-up, forcing him down to the canvas but Styles didn't give in, taking solace from the crowd chanting his name, he showed great leg strength to work his way back to his feet and continue the tie-up. Galloway started to cave in with Styles getting the upper-hand, but the champion gained an advantage, kicking an unsuspecting Styles in the gut to break up the tie-up before shooting him into the ropes before knocking him down with a big overhead belly-to-belly suplex. Galloway grins, sweeping his hair out of his face as Layfield looks on in satisfaction. Galloway controls the early few minutes of the match, punishing Styles as he attempts to wear his challenger down. Galloway hoists Styles on his shoulders before hitting him with a fireman's carry flapjack, sending Styles face first into the canvas. The champion doesn't go for the pin, and instead takes advantage of the grounded Styles, by punishing him with a unique submission, digging his knee into his opponents back while stretching out both arms, working on the back and arms effectively. Styles grits his teeth in pain, but once again the crowd support wills him on and he is able to shuffle along the canvas and break the hold by stretching his leg onto the bottom rope. The crowd cheer but it is short lived as Galloway drags him to his feet and takes him down with a powerful snap suplex, which gets him a two count. The champion goes back to work on the challenger, while Shawn Michaels watches on, confident Styles will make a breakthrough.

    Galloway has a real mean streak about him, as he attempts to nail Styles with a powerbomb, however Styles counters brilliantly, swiping Galloway down before bridging his legs and flipping over him, putting him in pinning predicament: One...Two...Th-No! Galloway bursts out and returns to his feet shocked that Styles nearly caught him out of nowhere. He tries to take his opponent back down with a big boot but Styles ducks before running the ropes, before connecting with a springboard moonsault assisted reverse DDT, floating over his stunned opponent before drilling Galloway into the canvas. The move takes a lot out of Styles who had been on the defensive all of the match, but it gained him enough time to get a breather and was the catalyst into helping him get a strong hold of the match-up.

    Styles went close to victory in the next couple of minutes, as he put his foot on the gas and upped the tempo, taking it to the champion. Galloway's championship reign looked in danger as Styles caught the champion with a huge Discus Clothesline, with Galloway narrowly getting his arm up before three. Styles stalked his opponent before attempting the Styles Clash but Galloway wriggled out of the move before rolling out of the ring and to Layfield, with the two taking a tactical time-out, just as Styles had built a hot momentum. Layfield gave some advice to the champion, who caught his breath after being on the end of a series of high-impact moves from the impressive Styles. Galloway finally rolled back in the ring and into a tie-up as he tried to derail Styles' momentum and turn the match back into his favour.

    The match neared the fifteen minute mark and was turning into an absolute battle, taking it's toll on both competitors. Galloway had the upper-hand after enduring a torrid time minutes earlier, and shot Styles into the rope about to meet him with a clothesline but Styles had the same idea, coming off the ropes with a flying forearm resulting in both men crashing into one another mid-maneuver, sending both crashing down to the canvas a la Rocky and Apollo in Rocky II. The referee starts the ten count, with both Layfield and Michaels looking on nervously at ringside.

    One...Two...Three...Four...Five...

    Six...Styles begins to stir....

    Seven...as does Galloway...

    Eight...Styles is back to his feet....

    Nine...the champion is back to his feet also!

    The two men stagger into each other's path and begin to trade blows, each desperate to get the upper-hand, as the fans at ringside watched on, heavily invested in a captivating evenly-contested championship bout.

    Finish: A number of counters and near-falls filled the match as both men felt that they were only one big-move away from victory. Galloway once again had the match in his favour as he planted Styles with a Northern Lights Suplex. The move wasn't enough to keep a resilient challenger down, so Galloway took the fight to the corner of the ring, punishing Styles with chops and forearms before placing him on the top turnbuckle. Galloway joins him, right on the top, looking for a Superplex but Styles put the brakes on, blocking before punching away at the back of Galloway, finally sending him crashing down from the top turnbuckle to the canvas. Styles looked down at a fallen Galloway for a brief moment before seizing his chance...Spiral Tap! Styles bounces off the sternum of the champion, hurting himself slightly with the move before turning and hooking the leg of Galloway. Layfield is beside himself at ringside while Michaels, Styles and the 10,000 cheering supporters brace themselves in anticipation. The count is deafening: One...Two...Three!

    No! Noooo! Galloway drapes his right leg over the bottom rope with Layfield the only man in the arena cheering in delight. 10,000 fans let out groans as Styles rolls away from the champion in disbelief. Galloway isn't going to give up this title without a fight. Styles returns to his feet with a groggy Galloway following. Styles takes one look at Galloway, sizing him up before going for the Pele Kick only to connect with the referee! Galloway uses the referee as a human shield, in an act of desperation with Styles nearly taking the officials head off his shoulders. Galloway crashes down to the canvas with the referee, exhausted but still in the match courtesy of some quick thinking.

    General Manager Layfield sees his chance and rushes in the ring, meeting an unsuspecting Styles with a brutal Clothesline From Hell. Michaels rolls in the ring, and takes out a smirking Layfield with Sweet Chin Music, to huge cheers from the crowd! Michaels rolls Layfield out of the ring, and to the outside where he picks him up drags him backstage and away from ringside. Back in the ring, Galloway comes back to and sees both Styles and the referee down and out. Galloway looks around to see that Layfield and Michaels are both nowhere to be seen. He gets a smile on his face as the crowd boo in disgust. Galloway drags Styles to his feet, and hooks him in for the Future Shock DDT, with the referee now returning to his senses. Galloway connects with the move, drilling Style's skull into the canvas, before hooking the leg with the groggy referee using all of his energy to make the count: One...Two...Thre-No! Styles gets the arm up, to the chagrin of Galloway! Galloway is beside himself, almost tearing his hair out. He takes a second, before breathing heavily and composing himself.

    He picks Styles up once again and declares to the world that 'this is it' - Future Shock...no! Styles counters, swiping the feet of Galloway. with a wild low kick to bring him down to both knees before twisting his arm, hooking it before flipping over and surprising him with the La Magistral Cradle: One...Two...Three! He's done it! Galloway can't escape in time and the Toyota Center nearly loses it's roof as the thousands in attendance scream and roar with delight. AJ Styles is your new NWA World Heavyweight Champion!

    Winner (And new NWA World Heavyweight Champion!): AJ Styles (via La Magistral Cradle - pinfall)

    Aftermath: Confetti rains down upon the Toyota Center as a physically and emotionally exhausted AJ Styles celebrates his championship win, clutching the championship belt into his chest, close to tears as the crowd voice their delight at the fact he has won the big one. Galloway is crestfallen, sitting dejectedly on the outside. Styles is alone in the ring, with his mentor Shawn Michaels choosing to watch on from the entrance ramp and allow Styles to have his big moment. Jim Ross and Paul Heyman thank us for joining them as the iPPV comes to an end with a lasting image of our new NWA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles.

    Default Re: NWA Resurrection

    System's Semantics


    Fistful Of Matches

    - if this isn't as awesome as these http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fistful_of_Aliens
    I'll be pissed
    - Not a fan of the intro music, seems weird to kick of a show, though you did an excellent intro
    for the event and getting across the atmosphere of the arena.
    - This match was a great opener, a solid spotfest (not a bad thing) to get the crowd on it's feet,
    though the hurricanrana to pin part before the finish doesn't seem plausible.
    - The finisher videos are a nice touch, but there's people IN FF that don't know what a German suplex is?
    - While the old school/new school has been done to death, i can't complain in a thread titled
    "NWA" resurrection and you wrote Aries and Shelley very well.
    - Your description of the entrances are a nice tough, definitely descriptive enough,
    especially considering I normally gloss over them so I can read the actual match.
    - Kofi too exhausted to make a pin in the early going? He needs to do more cardio
    - I think you could have put some of the finish segment into the summary section,
    but that's really irrelevant and this was a decent tag team match.
    - Daniels and Briscoe was good, nothing bad to say.
    - Candice Michelle feels so out of place in this fed, especially when there's no pictures.
    Not that it matters too much who your standard stick person is.
    - John Morrison's part sounded woeful..so you've got Morrison down pat.
    - The Three Stage challenge is an awesome concept and you've done a good job explaining how the process works.
    - Signature moves in the start of the match?
    - A Musclebuster is delightful? Odd choice of words.
    - Someone needs to come up with a good way of writing pinfalls in Fan Fic, with the slight disadvantage of knowing
    the match continues with the text beneath
    - Match was decent but the Londrick segment was something else! You are definitely familiar with writing these two,
    So can't wait to see where you are going with this. Probably one of the coolest things I've read in Fan Fic in recent memory.
    - educated feet maybe? you don't educate your kicks, you improve your lower co-ordination
    - Regardless Low Ki is impressive so far in this match up, and good to see that you made a point of Strong selling.
    - Well that finished ruined an otherwise great match. Ki destroys's Low Ki's legs and then makes him submit to
    a head/back move? I can understand that Low Ki may not have a "finish" move for legs, but I could believe him using
    a leg submission he wasn't know for as a finish..this isn't WWE.
    - The split screen is such a simple yet effective idea to get the constrasts over.
    - Shelley too slippery? cut down on the baby oil...
    - Finish segments could be much shorter, considering this is meant to be a summary match, so I'd put much more of the bulk of the
    match in the summar part. The finish spots of matches aren't generally very long, even in big matches.
    - The Cradle Piledriver is such an awesome move. Good match.
    - See above about the finish segments, seems counter productive as you want to make the summary segment's easy
    for casual readers..who may just want to quickly look how the match ended and who went over..and get paragraphs.
    - It's a credit to your writing that you can make Drew Mcyintre a serious Main event contender, I honestly don't
    see what Vince saw in him.
    - Unique submission = stuff it,can't remember what this move is called
    - I've never seen a snap suplex that looked all that powerful..considering it's a quick and low bump.
    - Powerbomb counter was cool.
    - Double Down segment definitely added to the match up, can definitely feel that the match was getting intense
    and taking it's toll.
    - I wouldn't have hated that Michaels/JBL segment if McYintre was going to win when the ref woke up, seemed
    pointless that Styles still kicked out anyway. Still I would love to a see JBl/Styles match. JBL was
    such an underrated gimmick. His Title reign was my favourite title reign ever..so you can imagine how happy
    I was after WM21
    - AJ gets the big title win and beats the odd's, fine with me and I can see where you were going
    with the Michaels/JBL exchange so I can't say it ruined the match.


    Overall:

    Show was great, I'd prefer if you made the "finish" segments just contain the moments just before the final
    pin/submission but that's not a big deal. One or two confusing choice of words or use of big moves in the early going
    but nothing that I found boring or pointless. Your match writing is superb, and you definitely are focused on
    what you intend to do with your roster. Fantastic work.

    The Cool Review

    Here’s a review for you, WMS, looking forward to reading it. The first match is Steamboat and Dragon Kid. I’ve only watched one Dragon Kid match (he was awesome, I need to catch more of him.) and I have never seen Steamboat wrestle, but you’re pushing him big time, I don’t think he’s lost yet in your fed so he must have some talent with the talented roster you have. Steamboat wins with something other than a small package, I like it. I’m not a fan of winning matches consistently with a small package. He can win matches with it, but just not all the time which you have seem to have had him doing. --- I think I’ve already told you that I love Aries and Shelley and I really do, two great characters. Hope they win tonight against two less interesting characters in Morrison and Lynn.

    Marafuji and KENTA beat Kingston and Bourne as I thought, KENTA and Marafuji are big stars in Japan (or they were when I was last checking a lot of Indy stuff.) so didn’t expect them to lose, it also makes it 1-1 which gives the final match relevance. --- Mark Briscoe beats Daniels, didn’t expect them. Thought that because Daniels was the bigger singles star you may have game him the victory here, guess this means Jay will lose instead. --- Lynn and Morrison’s promo was okay, nothing special. I fully expect you to give Aries and Shelley the victory. --- Wow, Jay Briscoe beats Jimmy Jacobs as well, which means they win 2-0 and don’t need a rubber match. I’m quite shocked at that, but not disappointed. I love myself some Briscoes so glad you’re making them look awesome. London & Kendrick beat them down afterwards, I have a feeling already that I’m going to love this feud. --- Low Ki and Roderick Strong I bet was stiff, what a match that would have been. Low Ki makes Strong tap, which I guess is okay, I’d of rather him pinned to make him look stronger. The Japanese win though, which I thought they would since they lost at the last pay per view. You couldn’t really have the NWA winning again as it would have made the Japanese look a lot weaker in comparison.

    Oh man, you gave Lynn and Morrison the win. I’ll let you off because I guess it makes sense so that the feud can advance. Shelley and Aries better get the best of this before the feud comes to an end though, else it’ll kill them in my eyes. Aries and Shelley arguing after the match, wonder where that is going. --- STYLES WINS! Shocked that you already have taken off of Galloway, but I for one am glad. I really don’t see the big deal in him and don’t see why a lot of people push him, don’t see it in him at all. Love that Styles won the title.

    All in all, I really like the way you written the show. I actually liked that it was quite short and not full matches because I’m not one for reading to many full matches anyway. This was a very good PPV, keep up the good work, man.
    Thanks too Fresh Prince

    Default Re: NWA Resurrection

    My friend Dub. It's time to review A Fistful of Matches man. I took the time to go over your past couple of shows before reviewing this to be up to date on JBL/HBK so far.

    First of all Houston is the Philly of the south. I've lived all over Texas, and went to a shitload of concerts all over the state, and the craziest crowds were always in Houston by far. Always the same group of people at each show. It got to the point where I knew a lot of guys by name just from going to shows during my senior year of high school in the city(the one year I lived in Houston, I grew up around the city though). Excellent town, with a lot in common with Philadelphia as far as the attitude of the people. If another wrestling promotion were to center itself in one city the way ECW did in Philly, they should do it in Houston.

    Awesome banner with HBK & JBL! Just screams Texas. +1

    Richie Steamboat fits right in with this setting/atmosphere. Not sure who Dragon Kid is really. I know, I should have looked this stuff up by now, but I promise it is on my list of things to do.

    Excellent opening paragraph for this summary. You are clearly on another level of writing than most here, including myself. Second paragraph, even better. This reads like one hell of a match.

    Wow. This was one hell of an opener man. Unbelievable match. So fluidly written, and easy to read. I can tell you enjoyed writing that, it showed. Streamboat is a stud. The aftermath just gives me goosebumps.

    Steamboat is officially my new favorite in NWA: Resurrection, and is climbing up my list of best written characters in Fan Fic.

    You have Austin Aeries nailed, but I'm not sure about Shelley. Still haven't seen much of this guy on the mike.

    Jim Ross. How can you not love this fed? Oklahoma boy fits right in.

    You have such an inviting writing style. I don't really know what I mean by that, but inviting is the first word that comes to mind when I try to describe your writing style. Going back to the earlier fed you wrote when I first came here based on Fan Fic'rs I noticed this. It just pulls you in, and it's so easy to breeze through without wanting to skip anything. This tag match is no exception.

    Fear and Loathing!?! Awesome name for a show.

    The Briscoes have a move called The Contra Code? I'm falling deeper and deeper in love with these guys I'm telling you.

    Oh that is a cold beatdown afterwards by Londrick. Watching your brother get beat down from outside the cage is pretty wicked.

    Outstanding way to set up this tag title match man. I can't wait to read this.

    Please hold on while I blare 5 Minutes Alone through my speaker system at retarded volume levels.

    You drew me into this Low Ki match right from the first line. Well done. Holy lord this is an awesome match. Excellent psychology, and really physical. Excellent selling with Strong, and damn. I haven't even read the finish yet, and I can say this is your best work yet in my opinion.

    This wasn't a fucking match, THIS WAS A FIGHT!

    Hell yeah man. Matches tell stories, and this one told a great story. These are the types of matches that I really like to read. You really hit this one out of the park. I was surprised you would give the win to Japan, and I loved the aftermath as well. You did a great job in the aftermath of selling how brutal this was. Great exclamation point to one hell of a match.

    This tag match was the one that I have been looking forward to the most, thanks to you involving Terry Funk in it. That got me very interested in this fued because Terry Funk is a Texas legend.

    Huge red hand print on the chest. You gotta love that!

    Another very well written match that was very easy to read. I got locked into this match from the start, and never lost interest.

    outstanding booking. If I were in this crowd I would have went home very happy, and I'm interested in the next saga in this Aries/Shelley episode as well.

    Tale of the Tape, I like that little touch.

    I guess I need to watch more videos on this Drew Galloway guy. I've only really seen the little clip RT put together of him in NEW, but damn, you guys are pushing him like he's Dean Malenko or something. I guess I need to check him out.

    By the way you did a tremendous job of hyping this match up to have a "Big Fight" main event feel. Well done.

    The main event didn't read as well as a few of these incredible matches on the undercard, but it was still high quality.

    What saved it was the incredibly EPIC finish. Outstanding man. Great title change, and a great finish that helped the match live up to it's billing.

    Confetti! It just keeps getting better. This is too awesome.

    Galloway is crestfallen, sitting dejectedly on the outside.
    Nice.

    Well, I don't see how the hell I can't give this a 10. This fed has turned into something really special man. This show had too many outstanding matches, hell the opening match was main event quality!

    Beatiful show man, almost brings a tear to my Texas eyes.

    Lo Ki vs Roderick Strong will go on my list of Best Matches of The Year along with RT's Main Attraction XV main event, and TMMW's Chris Jericho vs CM Punk.

    Overall: 10/10

    NWA: Resurrection presents Tuesday Night Showcase
    Tuesday July 17th, 2012 | Episode VI
    George R. Brown Convention Center, Texas


    Oooh, can you feel it comin?
    Oooh, can you feel it comin?
    Move back his wrecking ball, reach through the package
    More violence he's coming, he's coming, he's coming
    Move back his wrecking ball, reach through the package
    More violent he's coming, I'm running, I'm running...
    -Kasabian "Switchblade Smiles"

    We are treat to a series of still images recapping 'A Fistful of Dollars' with the last image being the most prominent of all - a teary AJ Styles on both knees in the ring, covered in confetti with the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in his possession. Kasabian's anthem comes to a halt, as we are greeted by the familiar George R. Brown Convention Center, and over a thousand screaming fans. Jim Ross and Paul Heyman converse over the noisy crowd, with their key discussion point being AJ Styles - the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion. Ross and Heyman speculate what is next for the champion as well as the former champion Drew Galloway. Heyman wonders aloud what John Bradshaw Layfield's actions will be following the title change. The pair's discussion stops immediately as the crowd roar with cheers.

    The champ is here - AJ Styles makes his way out to the ring with the beautiful, golden NWA World Heavyweight Championship sitting proudly on his shoulder. Styles is taken aback by the reaction, and it takes him a minute or two to speak. He fights back the tears to thank the fans in attendance for helping him along the way. Styles says thanks to Shawn Michaels for his words of advice, and for helping make it all happen. Styles says Michaels was not only a mentor but a friend and his help will never be forgotten. Styles says other than the birth of his children, Friday July 13th was the proudest day of his life. He takes a second to soak up the applause, and beams with delight as the crowd begin to chant his name. His smile turns into a look of disgust as John Bradshaw Layfield and Drew Galloway interrupt him, ruining a touching moment between champion and fans.

    Layfield asks Styles if he's enjoying himself as champion before telling him that tonight his world is going to come crashing down. Layfield says that the board of directors did not sanction a rematch clause in the contract, lambasting the decision. The General Manager says he was able to come to a compromise however, and that we will get a championship rematch tonight! Galloway is delighted with the news but his face soon falls when Layfield reveals he had to make a bargaining plea to ensure the rematch, saying that if Galloway fails to win tonight, he won't receive another shot while Styles is champion. Galloway is stunned, but that's not all - Layfield also announces that if Styles successfully retains tonight, it will also mark the end of John Bradshaw Layfield's spell as General Manager.

    The crowd cheer at the thought of Layfield having to step down as GM. It annoys him slightly, as he tells them to shut the hell up. Layfield says that he'll still be GM after tonight, and that he had no qualms in accepting the committee's offer, as Drew Galloway will defeat Styles tonight, and take his championship back. Styles cockily asks Layfield how he is so sure, before being blindsighted by Galloway who lays him out with a big boot to the side of the head. Layfield laughs, taking pleasure in Galloway's attack on the champion. Galloway takes Styles out with the Future Shock before picking up his championship belt, looking at it before creepily talking to it. The opening segments ends with Layfield and Galloway standing over a fallen AJ Styles, with Ross and Heyman excitedly discussing the announcement that tonight's main event will have high stakes for all three participants.

    ***

    In the opening match of the evening, Roderick Strong takes on local wrestler Louis O'Brien on the back of his iPPV defeat to Low Ki. The loss is clearly in the mind of Strong who dismantles his opponent, defeating him in quick fashion courtesy of the Gibson Driver. Strong's calf is visibly black and blue, with Ki's kicks responsible for the bruising. Roddy cuts a short promo following the match bemoaning his loss to Low Ki, and demands he gets a chance to redeem himself. Strong says he is laying down a challenge for Low Ki, for a rematch to take place in Las Vegas at Fear and Loathing. Strong says he'll be waiting, before hitting the helpless O'Brien with another Gibson Driver.

    ***

    Backstage, Christopher Daniels and Jimmy Jacobs are taking out their frustrations on a couple of backstage workers. Daniels and Jacobs bully the two men, with Daniels throwing a cup of coffee in one of the men's faces. The two laugh before looking to torment more people backstage, frustrated at their iPPV loss to The Briscoe Brothers. The two bullies are stopped in their tracks by Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne who haven't forgotten the fact that they were on the receiving end of chair shots by Jacobs and Daniels on the previous edition of Tuesday Night Showcase. Kingston and Bourne attack Daniels and Jacobs with lefts and rights, and are finally separated by several wrestlers backstage before things escalate further.

    ***

    Austin Aries features in the second match of the night taking on local wrestler Jay Connors. Aries punishes his poor opponent, clubbing him with strikes and uppercuts before finally ending the massacre with a brutal Brainbuster. Aries gets a microphone post match and says he has no allies, saying the only person you can trust is yourself. Aries calls out Terry Funk but instead is faced with John Morrison who hits the ring, and a brawl breaks out. Morrison finally gets the upperhand and dumps Aries out of the ring. Aries is furious and demands that Terry Funk stops being so cowardly and challenges Funk to attend next week's show and face him like a man. Aries says he wants and needs to put the old man out of his misery before exiting, John Morrison staring him down.

    ***

    Backstage, John Bradshaw Layfield is deep in discussion with Drew Galloway. Layfield is adamant things will go to plan, and ensures Galloway that Shawn Michaels will not step foot in the arena. Layfield looks pleased with himself until Galloway questions what will happen if things don't go to plan. Layfields smirk fades as Galloway exits the room, leaving Layfield to contemplate what he had just said.

    ***

    The third match of the night sees Jerry Lynn in action against local talent Ryan Stevens. Lynn makes short work of his opponent, barely breaking a sweat as wraps up the win with a devastating Cradle Piledriver. Lynn celebrates his win at ringside with the Texan fans but is punched by a hooded fan! The fan takes off their hood...Alex Shelley! Shelley hops over the guardrail and continues the attack, whipping Lynn knee first into the steel steps at ringside, before stamping repeatedly at the same knee that connected with the steel. Shelley finally stops the attack, satisfied with his work as several paramedics flee down to the ring to tend to Lynn who seems to be in some pain. Shelley takes a microphone as Lynn is helped away on a stretcher. The self-proclaimed 'New Star of NWA' catches up with the stretcher, telling Lynn that 'there isn't enough room for the both of us' before pushing Lynn off the stretcher, going back for the injured knee! Shelley locks in a figure-four leg-lock on a screaming Lynn, refusing to relinquish the hold. Finally, several backstage workers and wrestlers restrain Shelley, and drag him away from Lynn before any further damage can be done.

    ***

    We are treat to another video promoting 'Fear and Loathing' although this one differs from the one shown at the last iPPV. Two Steps From Hell's "Temptation Town" plays along to the video which sees more of NWA's stars in Vegas. Alex Shelley is seen attacking a waiter at a Bellagio restaurant while AJ Styles and Drew Galloway brawl near a pool at the Four Seasons. Several of NWA stars find themselves in a casino brawling, with the place quickly being turned upside down. We see a dealer with his head down surveying the carnage before revealing himself to be Steve Austin who shakes his head with laughter before the scene fades away into a still image promoting the event: NWA Resurrection presents Fear and Loathing Las Vegas August 17 only on iPPV!.

    ***

    The night's main event sees NWA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles defend against Drew Galloway. The match is the fourth encounter between the two in the space of two months, and as ever the pair live up to the high expectations bestowed upon them. Galloway starts the better man, eager to impose himself in the match and quickly regain what was his most prized possession. Styles is resilient as always, if not more with the championship at stake as he fires back with lefts and rights before hitting Galloway with a Pele Kick to work his way back into the match, desperate to hang on to his newly won title.

    John Bradshaw Layfield appears at ringside as Styles builds momentum, with Ross speculating that the GM is up to no good. His fears are proved good as Paul London and Brian Kendrick make their way to the ring, looking to distract the referee but their and Layfield's plan is foiled as The Briscoe Brothers rush down to the ring to meet the Tag Team Champions. The two teams brawl with their fight spilling into the crowd and quickly backstage as we return our focus to the ring. Layfield is beside himself that London and Kendrick have found themselves pre-occupied but he has a plan B.

    Styles and Galloway find themselves in the corner of the ring with Galloway on the back foot. Styles meets Galloway in the corner with a Stinger Splash leaving the Scot slumped on the floor. Layfield climbs onto the ring apron, trying to get the attention of AJ Styles. The referee orders Layfield to get down but Styles moves over to Layfield, and the two begin a shouting match. Layfield knows exactly what he is doing as Galloway approaches Styles from behind, looking to hit him with a big boot just as he had earlier in the night but Styles is one step ahead, and he ducks just in time, with Galloway catching Layfield instead, sending him crashing down from the ring apron and to the floor. Galloway lost concentration completely as AJ Styles caught him with surprise with a backslide: One...Two...Three! He's done it! Styles retains, Galloway loses any chance of getting a shot at the title while Styles is champion, and most importantly John Bradshaw Layfield must step down as General Manager!

    Styles celebrates on the outside, with fans delighted at the fact that not only has their favourite wrestler retained his championship, but also that John Bradshaw Layfield will no longer be a fixture in NWA:Resurrection! Galloway laments his loss in the ring before Layfield returns in the ring, red in the face and furious with Galloway. He shoves Galloway, calling him a loser causing Galloway to snap. Galloway takes Layfield out with the Future Shock, before deeming him worthless. Galloway stands over the former General Manager of NWA as the show goes off the air...

    END TUESDAY NIGHT SHOWCASE

    LAYFIELD EXITS, WHO WILL REPLACE HIM?

    The NWA Board of Director's were quick to address speculation concerning who will replace John Bradshaw Layfield as General Manager, in the aftermath of his departure as seen on last night's live edition of Tuesday Night Showcase.

    Several names of NWA's past have been linked to the role but Steve Austin has denied there will be a direct replacement for Layfield.

    Austin said: "We've decided to not look for a replacement for John, as we feel the show will benefit further from myself and the rest of the directors overseeing the direction it's going in, rather than a General Manager. We initially thought having a GM was a good idea, but Layfield's performance has made us do a u-turn on the whole idea. There will be no on-screen presence. This is a wrestling company, for wrestlers and with that said I want the spotlight to remain on those guys. We can do the same stuff behind the scenes, for now."

    Move back his wrecking ball, reach through the package
    More violent he's coming, I'm running, I'm running...
    -Kasabian "Switchblade Smiles"

    Kasabian's heavy anthem welcome us to the first edition of a new era of Tuesday Night Showcase following John Bradshaw Layfield's departure as General Manager. The mood in the George R. Brown Convention Center is jubilant as the commentary team of Jim Ross and Paul Heyman greet us, with the camera panning around the excited crowd. Ross and Heyman are deep in conversation, with the pair commenting on the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, wondering where AJ Styles and Drew Galloway go from here after last week's main event. The pair are interrupted by the music of Richie Steamboat, who arrives to the entrance ramp met met with huge cheers, his popularity increasing by the week.

    The first match of the evening sees the popular Steamboat in action against local wrestler Brad Hutchinson. Steamboat finds himself on the defence initially with Hutchinson trying to make a name for himself. His opponent's fiery attack is short-lived as Steamboat comes firing back with a series of chops and punches before finally leveling Hutchinson over the head with a Mongolian Chop. His opponent crashes down to the mat with Steamboat scaling to the top turnbuckle. Hutchinson returns to his feet, staggering slightly as Steamboat takes flight, landing a perfect crossbody to secure the pinfall and win.

    Steamboat celebrates his victory, beaming from ear to ear as he climbs the top turnbuckle once again to celebrate. He jumps off the turnbuckles only to find himself on the receiving end of a big boot! The crowd begin to boo hysterically as standing over a fallen Steamboat is none other than Drew Galloway. Galloway picks Steamboat back up before drilling him into the canvas with the Future Shock. He exits the ring, without saying a word leaving Richie Steamboat down and out. Ross and Heyman question Galloway's motives as he makes his way backstage, satisfied with his dirty work.

    ***

    Backstage, AJ Styles is busy watching Galloway's antics on a nearby television monitor. Styles looks disgusted by Galloway's actions but is interrupted by Todd Grisham. Grisham tells Styles that the NWA Board of Directors have signed a six-man tag team match for tonight with Styles and The Briscoe Brothers teaming up to take on Londrick and Drew Galloway. Styles smiles at the thought of getting his hands on Galloway once again, as Grisham asks his next question, one on the lips of every single NWA: Resurrection fan - what next for AJ Styles? Styles repeats the fact that he's the NWA World Heavyweight Champion, putting emphasis on the word 'world'. Styles says that he was watching KENTA's match at 'A Fistful of Dollars' in the back and made note of his challenge. Styles says that he officially accepts and will be honoured to defend his championship against Pro-Wrestling NOAH's KENTA at Fear and Loathing.

    ***

    Back in the ring, Alex Shelley is out for another edition of Shelley's Showcase. Shelley says that this week's guest is the sexiest, most talented, charismatic and entertaining wrestler in NWA. His guest in none other than himself! Shelley spends the next few minutes praising himself and reminding the audience of his brutal attack on Jerry Lynn last week, injuring his knee in the process. Shelley smiles regardless of the amount of boos he is getting from the Texan crowd. The boos increase in volume as he replays the attack on the huge TV monitor set-up alongside him in the ring. Shelley repeats the words seen in the same video saying "there's not enough room for the both of us" before proposing a Loser Leaves Town match at Fear and Loathing. Shelley says that it'll be the second greatest moment of his career to end the career of Jerry Lynn, saying he's saving the best moment in the career for when he becomes NWA World Heavyweight Champion.

    ***

    Evan Bourne goes one-on-one with Jimmy Jacobs in the second match of the evening, with Jim Ross informing us both Christopher Daniels and Kofi Kingston have been banned from ringside to avoid any possible altercations. Jacobs starts the match as the aggressor, punishing Bourne with lefts and rights before working him over in the corner of the ring. Jacobs tries to end the contest quickly, going for his finishing move the Contra Code but Bourne proves to be a tricky opponent, and counters sending Jacobs crashing to the outside, before catching him moments later with a suicide dive.

    The match is a balanced and evenly fought contest with both men struggling to find that one 'big move' to get the win. Jacobs tries in vain for the Contra Code once again but Bourne slips out of his hold, sending Jacobs crashing into the turnbuckles before quickly rolling him up from behind to get the three count! Bourne rolls out of the ring to avoid any post-match attack as Jacobs looks on scornfully, furious with himself for slipping to defeat.

    ***

    In the third match of the night, John Morrison went one-on-one with David Scott, a local talent from the area. Morrison invites Terry Funk in the ring before the match, with the Funker getting one of the loudest reactions of the night. Funk thanks the fans for their kindness and does Morrison's ring introduction before taking his place back in the crowd.

    Scott is totally outclassed as 'JoMo' delights the crowd, displaying his unbelievable skills and athleticism in the matter of a few minutes, taking Scott down with a huge hurricunrana before following up with the 'Chuck Kick'. Morrison finishes off his opponent with a stunning 'Moonlight Drive', hooking the leg for an emphatic victory.

    Morrison has his hand raised by the referee but is quickly taken down to the canvas as Austin Aries hits the ring, blindsighting him with a steel chair shot from behind. Aries attacks Morrison repeatedly, hitting him with three more chair shots as the crowd voice their anger and resentment. Satisfied with his work, Aries places the chair down in the ring and takes a seat. He spots Terry Funk in the crowd, and tells the audience that he isn't moving from the ring until Terry Funk comes in the ring and faces him like a man. We see a shot of an enraged Terry Funk before going to commercials.

    ***

    The show returns from commercials with Austin Aries still sitting on the steel chair in the center of the ring, with John Morrison still out for the count on the outside, hurt from Aries' ruthless attack. Aries mockingly looks at his wrist and yawns, gesturing that Funk is taking his time. Funk has had enough and works his way out of the crowd, who are chanting his name as loud and passionately as they can, hoping that Funk will shut Aries up.

    Funk stumbles over the rail and into the ring where Aries finally moves away from the chair, immediately getting in the face of the legendary star. Aries mocks Funk telling him that he's pleased and surprised that he's finally facing him like a man. Funk cuts him off calling Aries a disgrace to the profession, and a disgrace to human beings. Funk rips into Aries, unforgiving with his verbal insults which rile Aries up, his face growing redder and redder with every insult and put-down. Finally Aries has enough and snaps, picking up the nearby steel chair before drilling Funk gut first. Aries looks down at Funk who rolls around the canvas in pain before slamming the chair down on the canvas next to him.

    Aries thinks about leaving, but instead he picks Funk up before delivering a sickening brainbuster, sending Funk head-first into the steel chair! The crowd groan as Funk's head snaps off the chair, his body becoming lifeless. John Morrison crawls back in the ring but it's all too late, the damage has been done. Aries rolls out of the ring, wide-eyed with a huge grin on his face. He walks back up the entrance ramp as John Morrison tends to Funk in the ring, licking his lips with satisfaction as several officials and paramedics rush past him and to the ring. Paramedics care to Funk who isn't responding to any of them who are asking how he is. Morrison looks up from the ring as Aries exits, the crowd silent and stunned with disbelief at what had just transpired.

    ***

    From hectic scenes in the ring, to the very same backstage as Christopher Daniels and Jimmy Jacobs are stamping away at Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston, having already attacked them from behind off-camera. The two finish their attack before telling the beaten two that they'll see them at Fear and Loathing, effectively challenging the duo to a match. Daniels and Jacobs walk off with Bourne and Kingston left hurt and laid out.

    ***

    In the night's main event, AJ Styles, Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe take on Drew Galloway, Paul London and Brian Kendrick. The heel team seem to be in control of the match, with London and Kendrick doing all of the work while Galloway stands on the ring apron, watching. Kendrick eventually tries to tag in Galloway but the Scot drops off the ring apron, and walks up the entrance ramp and backstage leaving his partners London and Kendrick in peril.

    The NWA World Tag Team Champions fought valiantly despite the 3-on-2 disadvantage but finally fell to Styles' team with Styles securing the win for himself and The Briscoe Brothers, hitting Brian Kendrick with the Styles Clash before hooking the leg for the 1-2-3. The show goes off the air in an unusual calm manner with Styles and The Briscoe Brothers celebrating their win as Jim Ross and Paul Heyman contemplate what the fallout of tonight's show will be, given all the madness. Heyman says that tonight the "inmates have run the asylum" as Tuesday Night Showcase comes to a conclusion.

    RT better up his game because this fed is really kicking some ass right now. I don't have the time to write full reviews, but I read & enjoyed both of these shows. Looking forward to Styles vs Kenta at Fear & Loathing. I liked the way Aries almost let Funk off with just the belly shot, only to come back and totally beat him down.

    Two very well written, easy to read, well booked shows for sure man. Keep this up.

    Just a personal preference, but I wouldn't want to pay to see squash matches. I think they are a thing of the past that pro wrestling needs to move on from. Take the way Ryback has failed to get over for instance. It's just something that is old school that pro wrestling needs to let go of. Just my personal, humble opinion though, and one that I've recently come to. I would much rather see guys in even matchups.

    With that said, you book the squash matches very well. I liked the Alex Shelley hooded fan angle with Lynn's match. I'll probably steal that from you sometime way down the road a couple of years after everybody forgets about this mini-review.

    Thanks for the feedback Shinobi, you rock.

    RE: the squash matches, it's down to personal preference. I try to refrain from booking evenly matched matches other than the main event in order to make the matches feel more special for PPV. I'm of the belief that you should try and save your big matches for PPV's. Couple that with my small roster, than it's to my advantage to use squash matches. I totally understand where you're coming from, though.

    My roster will be getting a few new faces in shortly and a few shake-ups will happen so there shouldn't be as many squashes in the future. Still, I'm a fan personally as it's a benefit to my booking.

    Thanks again buddy.
    Sit down. Be humble.

    NWA: Resurrection presents Tuesday Night Showcase
    Tuesday July 31st, 2012 | Episode VIII
    George R. Brown Convention Center, Texas


    Oooh, can you feel it comin?
    Oooh, can you feel it comin?
    Move back his wrecking ball, reach through the package
    More violence he's coming, he's coming, he's coming
    Move back his wrecking ball, reach through the package
    More violent he's coming, I'm running, I'm running...
    -Kasabian "Switchblade Smiles"

    The eight edition of Tuesday Night Showcase begins in normal fashion with Kasabian's theme song playing us into the familiar sight of the George R. Brown Convention Center. Jim Ross and Paul Heyman welcome us to the show in their usual manner, with Ross saying that tonight will see the U.S television debut of KENTA who will be wrestling in preparation for his NWA World Heavyweight Championship encounter with AJ Styles. Paul Heyman says he has it on good word that the NWA Board of Directors will address Austin Aries and reprimand him for his behavior on last week's show. JR counters by saying there has been no sighting of Aries in the area today, with rumours flying around over his current status with the company. The duo are interrupted by an infamous theme song, which gets the entire crowd on their feet, cheering with appreciation.

    'American Dream' fills the arena who anticipate the arrival of Dusty Rhodes. Dusty comes out all smiles and tells the crowd that he is here on behalf of the NWA Resurrection Board of Directors. Rhodes says that he and the other committee members were disturbed by the behaviour of certain individuals on last week's show, namely Austin Aries. Rhodes updates us on Terry Funk's condition saying he is currently in hospital, and that he has sustained some serious injuries but should be fit to leave hospital within a couple of weeks. Nonetheless, Austin Aries' attack was cowardly, vicious and frowned upon by all of the committee and that having taken past behaviour into account also, a decision has been made to suspend Austin Aries indefinitely.

    The crowd meet the news with a mixed reaction, most happy Aries is being reprimanded with a few others somewhat disappointed NWA will be without a fine in-ring competitor. John Morrison interrupts 'the Dream', and says that while he respects his decision, something doesn't feel right to him. Morrison says that a suspension and a hefty fine isn't the way NWA used to settle things, and says if he has learned one thing from his friendship with Terry Funk, it is that some things are better off settled in the ring. 'JoMo' proposes he takes on Austin Aries at Fear and Loathing in order to properly gain retribution for Aries' brutality towards Funk. Rhodes says he likes Morrison's idea and promises him and the crowd that he'll talk with Terry and also with the Board of Director's and come to a decision by next week's show.

    ***

    The first match of the night sees Alex Shelley take on Chris Riley, a local wrestler from the area. Shelley is his usual cocky self, playing with Riley and mocking him with every punch and chop he lands to his opponent. Riley starts to fight back with Shelley's antics riling (no pun intended) him up, as he fires back with forearms and a big dropkick, taking Shelley down to the canvas. Shelley shoots right back up, with the dropkick serving as a wake-up call as Shelley ducks another forearm attempt before catching his opponent with a leg lariat. Shelley taps his head, as if to say he's smarter than the rest of us before picking Riley up and finishing him off with the Slicedbread #2 followed by a picture-perfect Lionsault, earning him a straight-forward victory.

    Shelley celebrates his victory, shoving the referee's arm away and climbing the top turnbuckle. Shelley basks in his glory, seemingly standing on the top turnbuckle forever. The crowd begin to cheer, with the cheers being almost deafening as Shelley soaks in the cheers, mistakingly believing they are directed at him. He jumps off the turnbuckles and turns around to see the reason the crowd have lost their mind...Jerry Lynn! Lynn has a crutch in hand, and he uses it as a weapon, leveling a stunned Shelley over the head and sending him retreating out of the ring. The crowd are hot as Lynn throws the crutch out of the ring and at a back-peddling Shelley. Lynn tells Shelley he accepts his challenge for a Loser Leaves Town match at Fear and Loathing, saying he'll love nothing more than to be the one to rid NWA of Alex Shelley.

    ***

    Candice Michelle is standing by backstage with NWA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles. Candice asks AJ about KENTA and asks if Styles will be at ringside for his debut match tonight. Styles is complimentary of his Fear and Loathing title challenger, and says that he will indeed be at ringside to scout his soon-to-be opponent. Styles admits that KENTA is a danger to his title, and goes as far as saying that he is unlike any other wrestler on the NWA Resurrection roster.

    ***

    Back in the ring, Richie Steamboat voices his anger and frustration after being on the receiving end of a Drew Galloway attack on last week's show. Steamboat says he doesn't care for reputations and isn't intimidated by what Galloway has achieved, because when someone puts their hands on him, he'll fight back, and that is why he is out here tonight. Steamboat tells Galloway to come out to the ring and instead of hitting him from behind, face him like a man and fight like a man should fight. Steamboat waits with the crowd fully behind their newly adopted favourite. He is left disappointed however when Roderick Strong makes his way to the entrance ramp.

    Strong says he knows he isn't who Steamboat was expecting but Strong couldn't help but admire his passion and fire and thought he had to come out and put it to some use. Strong says Low Ki has accepted his challenge for a rematch which will take place at Fear and Loathing, and that facing an aggressive and hungry Richie Steamboat would be the perfect warm-up for the match. Steamboat takes some offence at being called a 'warm-up' and tells Strong he's on. We have an impromptu match on our hands.

    ***

    The show comes back from commercial with the two men a minute into their contest. Steamboat takes out his frustration on Strong, whipping him into the corner before punishing him with chops and forearms before finally taking him down with a superplex. Strong kicks out and finally finds a way into the match, troubling Steamboat with his offence after initially countering Steamboat's headscissors attempt into a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Strong makes an effort of focusing on Steamboat's back but Steamboat is valiant and he works his way out of a Gibson Driver, to dropkick Strong to the outside. Steamboat takes a deep breath before vaulting over the ropes with a beautiful tope. Steamboat picks himself up and goes to throw Strong back into the ring but he is struck from behind by Drew Galloway!.

    Galloway smirks as he stands over Steamboat, before rolling him in the ring. Steamboat has won the match by DQ but doesn't feel like a winner after Galloway connects with a devastating Future Shock. Galloway looks down at a hurt Steamboat as Strong returns to his feet. Strong and Galloway's eyes meet and Strong considers helping Steamboat out before thinking better of it and exiting backstage to boos. Galloway watches him exit before connecting with one more Future Shock to a helpless Steamboat, leaving him laid out for the second consecutive week.

    ***

    The third match of the night saw Paul London and Brian Kendrick in non-title action against Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne. The match is a fast-paced affair with Bourne and Kingston able to get their opponents on the back-foot in the first few minutes. London and Kendrick look frustrated and are both relieved to see the duo of Jimmy Jacobs and Christopher Daniels who make their presence known at ringside. Bourne and Kingston don't take any chances and the two men turn their attention away from London and Kendrick and to the outside where they take down Jacobs and Daniels with suicide dives! The referee rings for a no contest as all hell breaks loose on the outside.

    London and Kendrick join the festivities and help Jacobs and Daniels in their fight with Bourne and Kingston. The four men beat down the men until finally The Briscoe Brothers hit the ring, and the fight evens up. The four teams brawl around ringside until dozens of backstage officials and security rush to the ring to try and break up the commotion. Dusty Rhodes is present and he says enough is enough, saying that this is the second match tonight to end in poor circumstances. Rhodes announces an eight-man tag match next week with The Briscoes, Bourne and Kingston going up against Londrick, Jacobs and Daniels to open the show.

    ***

    Backstage, Candice is with Drew Galloway who is on his way out of the arena. Candice questions Galloway's motives with the Scotsman seeming to take pleasure in telling Candice that Steamboat was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Galloway has a twisted smile across his face now as he says that Richie Steamboat made the biggest mistake of his life tonight, coming back for more. He tells Candice that he will make sure that Steamboat isn't able to call him out again, after he destroys him at Fear and Loathing. He leaves Candice and the arena, smiling with the thought of what he will do when he faces Steamboat one-on-one.

    ***

    It's main event time and KENTA makes his anticipated debut, one on one with a local talent named Stevie Morgan. AJ Styles is at the commentary table with Heyman and Ross, watching his Fear and Loathing opponent up close, hoping to get more of an idea of his soon-to-be opponent. In the ring, Morgan is severely out of his depth and is punished by KENTA, who takes him apart with an arsenal of kicks and chops, before nearly decapitating him with a brutal Running Busaiku Knee Strike. KENTA hooks the leg for the easiest three count of his career as AJ Styles gets to his feet and starts applauding. The crowd are impressed with a large section chanting KENTA's name as the referee raises his hand in the air. KENTA is oblivious to the chanting and is fully focused on AJ Styles who joins him in the ring.

    Styles and KENTA stare at one another, head-to-head for a few moments before finally a serious KENTA cracks a smile and offers his hand to Styles. Styles is a little cautious but takes the hand of KENTA, only to regret it as KENTA pulls him in and hoists him onto his shoulders, before nailing him with the Go 2 Sleep! KENTA's popularity does a complete 180 with boos ringing around the arena as KENTA stands over a fallen AJ Styles. He takes the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, holding it for a few seconds before smiling with satisfaction. He then drops the title onto a motionless AJ Styles and stands triumphantly over the champion as Tuesday Night Showcase goes off the air...

    END TUESDAY NIGHT SHOWCASE

    The Cool Review

    Wow, you’ve written three shows since I last reviewed, damn man you sure do pump your shows out quickly. I’m going to make comments on each one, not in great detail but I’m bored and I know by reading your two shows before the last one I’ll want to comment on things, so here goes.

    First Show – Well, first thing being major announcement that JBL loses his job if Styles wins tonight, which I think he will since he has only just won the title. So, I wonder who you have in mind to take charge once he’s gone. --- I’m still not sure if I like all these squash matches or not (don’t know If I’ve mentioned this before?), I sort of don’t like it because it’s 2012 and we don’t see that anymore but I sort of do because the NWA is old school and this is what used to happen back in the old days. --- I loved Alex Shelley jumping Jerry Lynn and having his hood up and all that, he’s one of, if not the best character in your fed at the moment. --- Styles retains like I though and JBL has to step down. Interesting that you had Galloway attack JBL after the match, not sure if you’re turning him face with that move or not. I really am not the biggest fan of the bloke though. All in all, a very solid show, has me wondering who is going to take the place of JBL, I’m guessing maybe someone like Ric Flair (NWA connections and all.)

    Second Show – By the looks of the announcement you’re going for the no GM like RT is doing as well, I’m personally not a HUGE fan of not having a GM, I always feel that having one around is useful. --- You’re building Steamboat quite nicely, I haven’t ever seen any of his work in real life, but you’re beginning to make me care about what you do with him. Galloway attacks Steamboat after the match which means he is still a heel, or maybe he’s just someone who doesn’t give a damn for anybody? That would be interesting. --- Styles/KENTA at Fear & Loathing is something I can get behind, that will be awesome. I like the fact that you’re making your title into a World Title as well, defending against all challengers across the world, not something you see in Fan Fic very much. --- Loser Leaver Town match, your card is getting stacked for the PPV already. No doubt, Shelley wins though because if he doesn’t you’re mentally retarded . --- Refreshing to have a non main event match actually not one of your roster against a local wrestler. --- Aries is awesome too; he and Shelley are the best parts of your show. I’m sure this is leading to an Aries/Funk match somewhere down the line, well at least it should do. --- AJ Styles & The Briscoes win, really not sure what you have planned for Galloway, but I’m actually starting to get interested in him, so kudos for that. A better show than that previous, IMO. Good show from start to finish.

    Third Show – Funk should be able to leave the hospital in the NEXT COUPLE WEEKS?! A Brainbuster to a chair has Funk in the hospital for three weeks?? I know he’s a bit older now, but this is Terry Funk, the hardcore legend!!! Not buying it would take him that long to recuperate from such a move. Has me looking forward to John Morrison/Austin Aries match more as this feud continues. --- Shelley/Lynn will be a great match, even though the winner is obvious, it is going to be a great match to read. --- Another non main event match between two men actually on your roster, I hope this becomes a weekly thing. The squash matches are okay, but mix them with two matches (one being the main event) from your actual roster and it’ll be the right mix. --- Galloway/Steamboat at Fear & Loathing, you have a stacked event, can’t wait to read it. --- Finally, KENTA beats a jobber, but I’m not too fond of how the show finished. I would have liked it more if they competed in more of a respect match, I don’t think either man had to be heel. All in all, another solid show. I’m really looking forward to Fear & Loathing, should be an awesome show. Keep up the good work, buddy.
    Thanks too Fresh Prince

    NWA: Resurrection presents Tuesday Night Showcase
    Tuesday August 7th, 2012 | Episode IX
    George R. Brown Convention Center, Texas

    -Kasabian "Switchblade Smiles"

    The road to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas continues with the ninth edition of Tuesday Night Showcase as commentary team 'JR' Jim Ross and Paul Heyman welcome us from the George R. Brown Convention Center. The duo's main discussion point is the conclusion of last week's show which saw KENTA deliver a Go 2 Sleep to NWA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles. Ross and Heyman question what Styles' retaliation will be before being interrupted by the theme music of the Tag Team Champions, Londrick. Paul London and Brian Kendrick make their way to the ring and gloat to the crowd about their brutal beatdown of The Briscoe Brothers at the last iPPV, A Fistful of Matches. London and Kendrick mock the brothers for the way they speak and their intelligence, before comparing them to the George R. Brown Convention Center crowd. Their insults are replied by deafening boos, which the pair eat up as they laugh and joke about the reaction they've caused.

    The hated duo are joined by their partners for tonight, Jimmy Jacobs and Christopher Daniels. The two teams stand away from one another in the ring, and don't say a word to each other. Instead, London whispers something into Kendrick's ear which makes them laugh in the direction of their partners who look less than pleased to be teaming with the two. Their opponents Kofi Kingston, Evan Bourne and the Briscoe Brothers join them in the ring moments later, looking much more like a team with all four men conversing and wearing the same colour attire. The atmosphere around the George R. Brown Convention Center for the first match of the evening is electric with the crowd wanting The Briscoes to get their hands on London and Kendrick for their earlier insults.

    The first match of the evening is a memorable one, fought at a quick pace and with the added element of a hostile crowd it makes for a thrilling encounter. London and Kendrick are both dumped to the outside in the early goings and finds themselves on the receiving end of a double plancha courtesy of Kingston and Bourne which the crowd love. The Briscoes have to wait a little to get their hands on their soon-to-be opponents but take out their frustrations on Jimmy Jacobs who is on the wrong end of a nasty Reverse STO-leg drop combination from the brothers. Jay Briscoe soon gets his hands on Paul London but London quickly tags out, with one stiff uppercut being more than enough for one half of the champions. Christopher Daniels tags in and tries to turn the match back in the favour of his side after a hectic start.

    Daniels soon does so, raking Briscoe in the eye before slowing things down and gaining the advantage. The heel team keep Jay in peril for the next few moments, attempting to tire him out but Jay eventually found an escape, delivering a leg lariat to Kendrick before finding enough energy to tag in Evan Bourne who came in the ring and cleaned house, which would lead to the match spiraling out of control. Bourne tagged back out to Mark Briscoe who found himself in the ring alone with Kendrick as Bourne and Kingston took to the outside once again, with both men criss-crossing in the ring before shooting through the ropes to knock down Jacobs, London and Daniels! The crowd explode with cheers for the stunning double-team move before returning their focus back in the ring where Brian Kendrick panics and rushes at Mark Briscoe only knocked down with a huge lariat! Kendrick is nearly turned inside out by the move, as Briscoe helps him return to his feet before drilling him with the Mark Out to get the popular victory.

    Mark celebrates outside the ring and is soon joined by his brother with the duo overjoyed to get one over London and Kendrick. London comes back in the ring and is beside himself at being one-upped by the 'dumb' brothers. He mutters under his breath as Kendrick begins to come to as the show goes to commercials.

    ***

    Following the break, Alex Shelley is in the ring for yet another edition of Shelley's Showcase. Shelley is all smiles despite Jerry Lynn getting the better of him on last week's show. Shelley addresses Lynn saying that Lynn is making the mistake of his life. Shelley tells the fans that they can see him dismantle and weaken Lynn in tonight's main event as he'll be teaming with KENTA to take on NWA's 'two biggest losers' Jerry Lynn and AJ Styles. Shelley says it's poignant that Styles is Lynn's partner, because the NWA World Heavyweight Championship will be in his path once he gets rid of Jerry Lynn.

    Shelley basks in the boos from the audience for a moment before introducing his guest on tonight's show - former NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Drew Galloway. Shelley asks Galloway to tell us all how the events of the last few weeks have changed him and how he is coping since his championship loss. Galloway blames John Bradshaw Layfield for his downward spiral, and says that the biggest mistake of his career was trusting and joining forces with that man. Galloway claims he is in the midst of salvaging his career and is biding his time until AJ Styles slips up and loses that belt. Galloway says he will destroy any one who happens to have taken that championship away from Styles whether it be KENTA, or the man in front of him right now, Alex Shelley. Shelley and Galloway go face to face for a few moments but Galloway backs off and tells us that standing in his path right now is Richie Steamboat, and he is in a very unfortunate position.

    Right on cue, out runs Richie Steamboat who rushes to the ring and confronts Galloway. The two begin to brawl with Steamboat quickly gaining the upper hand, clotheslining Galloway over the rope and out of the ring! Steamboat turns around and meets eyes with Alex Shelley who looks like he is about to attack, Shelley thinks better of it and rolls out of the ring as Steamboat takes his microphone and tells a disgruntled Galloway that he will kick his ass at Fear and Loathing.

    ***

    Roderick Strong continued his warm-up for his big rematch with Low Ki at Fear and Loathing in the night's second match, facing local talent Riley Williams. Strong was ruthless, decimating his opponent inside a minute, crushing him with a yakuza kick before finishing him off with the Gibson Driver. After the match Strong said that all his bruises were gone except from in one place, his head. Strong claimed that the loss to Ki has damaged him mentally and that he'll do anything to help his chances of winning the rematch at Fear and Loathing to overcome the mental fragility he has recently endured. Strong promises that next week's show he will have the perfect practice run as he exits to a chorus of boos.

    ***

    Backstage, Todd Grisham is lingering around the backstage area when he spots NWA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles. Grisham runs over to Styles and immediately questions him over last week and for his thoughts on being on the wrong-end of a Go 2 Sleep from KENTA. Styles stops in his tracks for a moment, but looks too pissed off to even answer Grisham. He stares at Grisham and the camera for a few moments before shaking his head in disbelief and exiting. Grisham watches him walk away, and reports back to the ringside telling fans that AJ Styles will do his talking in the ring tonight, when he and KENTA are on opposite sides of the ring in tonight's tag team main event.

    ***

    In the ring, John Morrison takes on Anthony Harrison, a young local wrestler in the third contest of the evening. Morrison impressed as per usual, running rings around Harrison and in the end proved to be far too talented and tricky for his opponent to handle. Morrison finished off his opponent with a Chuck Kick followed by Starship Pain from the top rope for the three count.

    Morrison's post match celebration is interrupted as the crowd burst into cheers as the entrance music of the legendary Terry Funk plays over the announcement system. Funk walks out onto the entrance ramp and is wearing a neck brace as he walks down to the ring to meet Morrison. Funk shakes the hand of Morrison and takes the microphone. He says he's embarrassed that his body is getting old and that it isn't as glutton for punishment as it once was. Funk says that he's still stubborn and that he discharged himself out of hospital against doctor's orders just so he could come here tonight and join Morrison in the ring.

    Funk says he's here tonight to tell everyone in the audience and around the world that Austin Aries will get his shot at redemption - at Fear and Loathing Aries' suspension will be revoked and if he manages to beat John Morrison than he will overturn the suspension and wrestle again normally in NWA: Resurrection. If Aries fails to beat Morrison, than the suspension will stand indefinitely. Funk ends by telling Morrison to teach that punk a lesson he'll never forget before the two exit the ring together.

    ***

    Backstage, Paul London and Brian Kendrick are seen arguing as they leave the arena. London blames Kendrick for the loss but Kendrick defends himself saying London should have been in a position to back him up and break up the pin. They continue to argue as they get into a limo and drive out of the arena as Paul Heyman wonders if dissension is forming between the two due to pressure from their tag team challengers.

    ***

    The main event saw KENTA and Alex Shelley take on AJ Styles and Jerry Lynn. Shelley appeared to try and make conversation with KENTA before the match but the Japanese star simply stared at Shelley choosing not to reply to him. Shelley shrugged his shoulders and took to the ring apron as KENTA started the match, with AJ Styles telling Jerry Lynn to stay back as he wanted to get his hands on KENTA. The two paced around the ring ready to lock up but the star played mind games with Styles tagging straight out to a confused Shelley who entered the ring and locked up with Styles who looked disappointed. Styles took out his frustrations on Shelley as he and Lynn controlled the early goings.

    Lynn didn't appear to be 100% and this was plain for all to see as the match progressed. Shelley took advantage and after taking him down with a dropkick to the knees, Shelley tried to take advantage of it. He continued to work away at the injured leg of Lynn, trying to make good on his promise that he'd dismantle him ready for their Loser Leaves Town match until finally AJ Styles entered the ring and broke up Shelley's figure four leg lock. The referee approached Styles and this distraction allowed KENTA to blindside Styles taking him out with a huge Busaiku Knee Strike! Styles went crashing through the ropes and to the outside, landing nastily on the hard, cold floor. KENTA smiled with satisfaction and took his place back on the ring apron as Jerry Lynn tried to fight off Alex Shelley.

    Lynn managed to shrug Shelley off with a step-up enziguri, but as he reached to his corner he noticed Styles wasn't on the ring apron, and instead knocked out on the outside. He looked in despair, before returning to his feet where he limped into the direction of KENTA who had just tagged himself in. Lynn swung at KENTA but missed and soon found himself hoisted onto his shoulders, he tried to fight him off with elbows but to no avail as KENTA connected with a sickening Go 2 Sleep! Lynn thudded off the knee of KENTA before folding into the canvas as KENTA hooked his leg for the three count and victory.

    Shelley celebrated triumphantly on the outside and went to celebrate alongside KENTA but thought better of it and instead made his way back up the entrance ramp, holding his arm aloft in celebration. While Shelley was jubilant, his partner KENTA was indifferent as he wore a cold stare upon his face. He finally held his arm in the air as AJ Styles returned to his feet, holding himself up by the ring apron to stare up at the man he would face in just over a week's time. Tuesday Night Showcase goes off the air with one last look at the seemingly unbeatable KENTA.

    END TUESDAY NIGHT SHOWCASE

    -Kasabian "Switchblade Smiles"

    A landmark tenth edition of Tuesday Night Showcase begins in the same vein as the nine that have proceeded it with Kasabian's heavy-hitting anthem coming to a halt as the home of Showcase, the George R. Brown Convention Center comes into sight and announce team 'JR' Jim Ross and Paul Heyman thank us for joining them. JR greets us by saying that tonight is the last stop before Fear and Loathing with his colleague Heyman voicing his excitement for the show and a trip to Vegas. The George R. Brown Convention Center come to their feet in appreciation of the champion as the entrance music of AJ Styles interrupts Ross and Heyman's discussion.

    The NWA World Heavyweight Champion looks displeased and voices his frustration to start the show as he bemoans KENTA getting the better of him for two weeks running. Styles says that he has had people approach him for the past week asking how it feels to know that KENTA has outstaged him for the past two weeks, and asking him if he regrets accepting his challenge. Styles tells us that he is pissed off with people asking him if he regrets accepting KENTA's challenge, reminding us that he's the champion and that makes him the best in the world. Styles demands KENTA to come and meet him in the ring, and fight him like a man. Styles promises that we would see a different result if the two were face to face.

    He waits and waits until finally music plays over the personal announcement system. Much to the chagrin of Styles however, the music belongs to Roderick Strong who walks onto the entrance ramp to loud jeers from the audience who were, much like Styles, anticipating the arrival of KENTA. Strong doesn't seem fazed by the negative reaction, and instead tells Styles that he believes in him, and truly believes he is the best in the world. Styles looks uncertain how to react until Strong reveals his prerogative. Strong issues a challenge for Styles tonight, for a main-event non-title match with both men getting the best practice possible ahead of their respective matches at Fear and Loathing. Styles considers it for a moment before accepting and telling Strong he'd see him later tonight, adding that he couldn't think of a better way to rid himself of his frustration than in the ring.

    ***

    The first match of the night sees Brian Kendrick go up against Mark Briscoe in an attempt to gain some retribution for Briscoe scoring the fall courtesy of Kendrick on last week's show. Kendrick is fired up in the early goings, with Ross mentioning that Kendrick and London were unhappy with their loss last week and have trained hard since. Kendrick goes close with a reverse DDT, followed by a backslide as Mark Briscoe has a tough time trying to force himself into the match-up. Finally Mark gets a breakthrough, taking Kendrick down with a leg-lariat before picking up a head of steam turning the match in his favour.

    Mark reverses a Slicedbread #2 attempt, and sends Kendrick crashing into the turnbuckles before signalling for his finisher, the Mark-Out. He stalks Kendrick, waiting for him to return to his feet but Paul London comes rushing into the ring and tries to blindside Briscoe. Mark see's him coming however and fights back with lefts and rights before being joined by his brother Jay Briscoe who evens the scores, and ends up brawling with Brian Kendrick who has returned to his feet. The referee calls for the bell with both men being disqualified as the two teams erupt into a fight which is split up by several members of security and backstage officials just moments later. The men are restrained with Ross hyping up their match at Fear and Loathing, asking us what will happen when these two teams are let loose with the NWA World Tag Team Championship on the line?

    ***

    We return from commercials with Jim Ross telling us that he was granted an interview with Austin Aries a couple of days ago, and that interview will air on tonight's show right now. Ross reminds us of Aries' situation as well as his forthcoming match with John Morrison at Fear and Loathing, where Terry Funk will be in his corner. Ross said Aries' suspension means he can't appear in person, but this interview here will allow us the opportunity to see where Aries' head is, just days away from Fear and Loathing.


    A studio comes into vision with two figures sitting down opposite one another. The camera zooms in to reveal the two to be Austin Aries and ‘JR’ Jim Ross. Ross is sitting cross-legged with his cowboy hat on, the same hat that has become synonymous with the well-respected commentator over the years. Opposite him is Austin Aries, who is dressed rather informally and appears to have come straight from the gym, and looks rather disgruntled. Ross welcomes us and thanks Aries for joining him before beginning to speak.

    Jim Ross: “Austin, let’s get right to the heart of the matter. You’re joining me at this time because of a suspension that won’t be revoked until the night of Fear and Loathing. That suspension has kept you from appearing on our televisions and if you aren’t able to beat John Morrison at Fear and Loathing that suspension will go back to being an indefinite suspension and question marks will surround your future in NWA: Resurrection.

    Aries looks at Ross for a few moments, a look of disgust etched upon his face. He laughs for a split second before regaining seriousness and replying.

    Austin Aries: “First of all JR, you don’t need to worry about my match with John Morrison. I will beat Morrison, and if you think what I did to Terry Funk was bad, it will be nothing, NOTHING in comparison to what I do to John Morrison at Fear and Loathing. As for my future in NWA, do you think I want to come back to this company after my mistreatment from the board of directors? Do you?”

    Jim Ross: “I don’t know Austin. This is why I’m here right now. We obviously haven’t heard things from your side due to the board’s decision to suspend you. You haven’t appeared on our screens for almost a month. What are you feeling right now? This is your chance to get things off your chest, the board despite what you may think of them, have gave you this opportunity to air your views.”

    Ross isn’t intimidated by Aries despite the menacing stare across his face. Aries seems a little rattled that Ross stood up for the directors, but nonetheless answers in a reserved manner.

    Austin Aries: “I’ve had an awful lot of time to think the past few weeks. Being suspended I haven’t had an awful lot to do other than work out and think about my future and how things have transpired. You might not want to hear it but Terry Funk brought it on himself JR, he didn’t have to step into that ring, and he did that on his own terms. The board of directors took the easy way out and suspended me to save face. They may as well have spit in my face because that tells you all you need to know Ross. These directors are stuck in the past, they’ve got a hard-on for nostalgia and yours truly has felt the brunt of it. Why should I come back? Hell, why should I even face John Morrison at Fear and Loathing? You tell me that JR.”

    Jim Ross: “Now Austin, you know fine well that you manipulated Terry Funk. You degraded Terry and being the proud man he is, Terry fell for your trap and you punished a man twice as old as yourself and beat him mercifully. I can’t quite comprehend how you can continue to defend your actions.”

    Aries begins to grow impatient now, his face is redder and the tone in his voice has changed from calm and collected to a more angry and annoyed tone.

    Austin Aries: “I’m not surprised you’re siding with your buddies JR – let’s face it, you’re a relic yourself. That’s fine, you can back your buddies up but I know I’m right, and the reason I’ll show my face at Fear and Loathing is to defend myself and take out John Morrison. After I beat Morrison, I don’t know where my career lies because in all honesty I don’t know if I want any part of ‘this’ NWA.”

    Jim Ross: “So are you trying to tell us that Friday night we will see the last of Austin Aries in an NWA ring whatever the outcome?”

    Austin Aries: “You’re the expert JR, you’ve been doing this for decades. You can interpret what I just said in whatever way you so please, I’m confident of the outcome and I know fine well where I will go from here. I’ve had time to work out my next steps. You’re just going to have to trust me when I say I’ll be the one laughing last.”

    Ross looks into the eyes of Aries for a few moments, slightly perplexed but attempts to get more answers out of him. Aries seems to have calmed down slightly; no longer is red in the face but still his voice louder than before.

    Jim Ross: “Just before we wrap things up, is there anything you’d like to say to the man you hospitalised for two weeks, Terry Funk?”
    Aries smiles for the first time in the interview, as if he’d wanted JR to ask this question since the very beginning.

    Austin Aries: “If you’re watching Terry, I just want to ask you if you’re happy? You brought all of this on yourself you son of a bitch, and at Fear and Loathing after I’m done with Morrison, I’m going to finish where I started with you, and put old yellow down.”

    Ross seems repulsed by Aries’ last couple of sentences but nonetheless he thanks Aries for joining him and tells him that the whole world will be watching his situation closely, before promoting the match at Fear and Loathing as one that we will never forget. Aries sits and stares into the camera, looking smug with himself as if he knew something Ross and the rest of us, didn’t….

    The interview segment fades and transitions into a video. The video is dead air for a few moments before the words 'TAKEOVER' flashes on the screen in white bold writing. It fades away quickly before the words 'Commencing Soon' flash on the screen for a split second before the video becomes blurry and distorted and eventually cuts away. Ross and Heyman react with silence before changing the subject quickly, making it slightly obvious that the video wasn't meant to be a part of the show.

    We are treat to six-man tag action for the night's second match as Richie Steamboat partnered the team of Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne to take on Christopher Daniels, Jimmy Jacobs and his rival of the past few weeks Drew Galloway. The match centered around Steamboat trying to get his hands on Galloway, but the Scot was smart and made sure to avoid being tagged in for the majority of the match, showing no interest in working too hard before his match three days later with Steamboat.

    Daniels and Jacobs seemed frustrated with their partners unwillingness to inject himself into the match-up, and as a result the dissension in their team gave the advantage to their opponents with Richie Steamboat capitalizing, surprising Daniels after a reversal out of the Angel's Wings, rolling him up for the three and a big win to continue his momentum rolling into Fear and Loathing. Steamboat had little time to celebrate his win as Daniels clotheslined him from behind in frustration which brought Bourne and Kingston into the ring, who quickly took out Daniels and Jacobs to the outside. Steamboat picked himself up only to walk into a Future Shock courtesy of Galloway!

    Galloway stood over his soon-to-be opponent, smirking as the crowd directed their anger and boos towards him. He crouched down to Steamboat, talking trash before slapping him in the face and telling him that he will bring his world crashing down Friday night.

    ***

    Alex Shelley is in the ring after commercials and welcomes us to Shelley's Showcase, what he describes as 'must-watch television'. Shelley says that his guest tonight is noneother than the man whose career he will end this Friday night - Jerry Lynn. Shelley said that he thought it fitting that he would have Lynn as a guest on his final ever appearance on Tuesday Night Showcase. Shelley continues to run down Lynn until finally he comes out from the entrance ramp and joins him in the ring.

    Lynn and Shelley go back and forth in insults for a while with Lynn telling Shelley that he's a deluded fool and that this will be the last time Alex Shelley annoys these fans in the George R. Brown convention center, because it will be he who will be leaving NWA once Fear and Loathing is finished. Shelley laughs it off and tells Lynn that he isn't fooling anybody other than himself. Shelley draws our attention back to last week's show and says that Lynn was taken apart and that it was clear for everyone to see that he isn't 100%, and is still half-injured. Lynn bites his tongue, looking despondent as Shelley continues.

    Shelley claims that Lynn won't be fit to properly take part in the match and that by participating he is setting himself up for a loss. Shelley has the nerve to tell Lynn he can back out now, and that he doesn't have to go ahead with the match. Shelley mocks him by saying he'll allow Lynn to save his career and take the easy option which in turn angers and infuriates the veteran who snaps and attacks Shelley with lefts and rights before throwing him out of the ring, showing little signs of any injuries or ring rust. Shelley picks himself up on the outside and licks his lips knowing his words will play on Lynn's mind as the two stare at one another. Lynn says he'll kick Shelley's ass even if he dies trying as the segment comes to an end.

    JR and Paul Heyman promote Fear and Loathing, stressing the fact that it will be available on iPPV this Friday, the 17th of August. Ross says the event is sold out and reminds us that the event is the first NWA: Resurrection event to take place outside of Texas, with Las Vegas' Smith Center hosting the event. Heyman says he is unsure what he's more excited for - the trips to Vegas casinos or some of the wrestling matches set to take place. Heyman plugs KENTA versus AJ Styles for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, saying KENTA is unlike anyone in NWA and his unbeaten record emphasizes that. Ross talks about the other championship match with Londrick making their first title defence against The Briscoe Brothers. Heyman adds that they're two other matches on the card with as much importance as the championship matches - firstly Austin Aries against John Morrison who will be defending the honour of the great Terry Funk. Aries' NWA future is in doubt and should he fall to defeat, he will be indefinitely suspended from the company. Heyman moves on to a former ECW friend, Jerry Lynn who will be facing nemesis Alex Shelley in a Loser Leaves Town match saying 'NWA isn't big enough for both of these men to co-exist!'. Ross quickly runs through the rest of the card mentioning Galloway versus Steamboat, Kingston and Bourne vs. Daniels and Jacobs and finally a rematch from last month's event in Low Ki versus Roderick Strong. Ross tells us to buy the iPPV and witness history unfold as NWA: Resurrection takes over Las Vegas for one night only!

    ***

    AJ Styles and Roderick Strong clash in the night's main event, with KENTA slowly creeping towards the ring half-way during the match. Until that point Styles seemed in cruise control having firstly took out some of his frustration on Strong with a flurry of chops and punches followed up by a Pele Kick, before going close to the win with a Stylin' DDT, with Strong saving the match by putting his foot on the bottom rope. KENTA's appearance distracted Styles slightly and Strong used this to his advantage to work his way back into the match.

    Strong struck Styles with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker before punishing him with a torture rack, finally releasing the hold before throwing Styles airbourne and catching him with his raised knees. Strong covered but only managed to get two-and-three-quarters but the move was enough to hurt AJ and give Strong some momentum. Styles was valiant and kicked out of everything Strong threw at him in an explosive main event and did enough to knock him down and out at the fifteen minute mark, denying Strong's super fall-away slam attempt before sending him spiraling down to the canvas, regaining his composure before connecting with the Spiral Tap for the three count!

    Styles returns to his feet overjoyed with his hard-fought victory but he's attacked from behind by KENTA! The fans joy turns into displeasure as KENTA gets the NWA World Heavyweight Champion on his shoulders and connects with Go 2 Sleep! Styles thuds off KENTA's knee and bounces off the canvas sickeningly before KENTA snatches the NWA title out of the referees hand and raises it in the air, standing tall over Styles in front of a booing Texan crowd with Heyman commenting he has an ominous sense of foreboding as Tuesday Night Showcase goes off the air one last time before Fear and Loathing...

    END TUESDAY NIGHT SHOWCASE

    -The Rolling Stones - 'Gimme Shelter'


    NWA: Resurrection - Fear and Loathing
    Friday August 10, 2012
    The Smith Center - Las Vegas, Nevada


    The Rolling Stone's legendary lead vocalist Mick Jagger's screams of the word 'away' leads us into our first view of a rammed Smith Center, with almost 2,000 screaming fans in the audience for NWA: Resurrection's first event out of the Texas area. Several of the fans are looking excited in anticipation of their first taste of live NWA action as the rest of us at home are welcomed by the commentary team of Jim 'JR' Ross and his colleague Paul Heyman. Ross and Heyman shout over 'Gimme Shelter' and the roars of the Vegas crowd with their usual mixture of hyperbole and excitement. Jim Ross calls it a historic night, saying that NWA: Resurrection takes its first steps out of Texas and enters a new horizon. Heyman is ecstatic and puts over Vegas as the land of sin and solace, with Ross questioning whether Heyman has partaken in any 'sin' or 'solace' himself since he got here. We never get Heyman's answer as the pair are interrupted by Sharman's Harvest's "Broken Dreams" which ignites a chorus of boos as well as the introduction of Drew Galloway. Galloway marches down the entrance ramp, snarling at the Vegas fans who look back at the star full of loathing and hatred. Galloway is oblivious to the negativity as he takes his place in the ring, awaiting his opponent for the night, looking eager to hurt and punish him as quickly as possible.

    He doesn't have to wait long as The Alan Parsons Project's 'Sirius', one of the most legendary wrestling themes in history blasts across the arena and the crowd erupt in cheers anticipating the arrival of Richie Steamboat. Steamboat comes flying onto the entrance ramp and is for once not all smiles. The son of the 'Dragon' is deadly serious, Galloway has stolen his smile and tonight he gets it back. Steamboat points towards the ring and shouts 'you' at Galloway before running from the ramp at full speed towards his opponent! Steamboat slides in the ring but is immediately under a barrage of attack from a cerebral Galloway. Steamboat fights off Galloway's attack, full of rage and the two star to trade blows as the bell rings and Fear and Loathing's opening match begins.


    Opening Match
    Grudge Match
    Richie Steamboat vs. Drew Galloway


    Summary: Steamboat starts strongest and it is clear for all to see he is full of fire as he shows a side that we haven't saw from him before. The youngster is ruthless and aggressive punishing his nemesis with a flurry of chops and forearm strikers before sending him to the canvas with a big Mongolian chop around the side of Galloway's head. Galloway struggles to contain Steamboat who starts with a quick and strong tempo, threatening to cause a quick upset, going close with a backslide before sending his opponent tumbling through the ropes and to the outside courtesy of a stiff dropkick to the chest. Steamboat braces himself before taking flight towards Galloway on the outside, only to crash off the announce desk as Galloway avoided the dive at the last split second. Steamboat rebounded off the desk with a sickening thud as his opponent watched on in disbelief, trying to catch his breath after being on the back-foot for the first few moments of the match.

    The match turns into the favour of Galloway following Steamboat's high-risk crash and burn and it sees Galloway dominate the proceedings by first attempting to wear down the speedy, energetic Steamboat by keeping him on the mat and locking in a variety of holds to slow down the match and help gain the advantage. Galloway uses his long legs as a vice to trap the body of Steamboat as well as creating pressure on his mid-section, causing him to roar in pain. The crowd get behind Steamboat and with their support he finally escapes Galloway's clutches, fighting and clawing his way out to grab the bottom rope and break the hold. Galloway is relentless however and the second Steamboat returns to his feet he is immediately mowed back down thanks to a vicious lariat that comes close to a three count. Galloway drags up his battered opponent before whipping him into the corner, showing great speed and awareness by following up with a huge big boot sending Steamboat slumping down to the mat. The Scot raises his hand in the air and taunts the NWA crowd as the match nears the eight minute mark with Galloway firmly in control of things.

    Galloway becomes slightly lackadaisical and too content as the match progresses which allows Steamboat to work his way back into things. Galloway goes for the Future Shock DDT, shouting insults at the crowd as he locks in the move. His time-wasting costs him as Steamboat spins out and reverses with a beautiful release capture suplex sending the crowd into a frenzy as they sense that their favourite can mount a comeback. Galloway bounces off the canvas, clutching his back before returning to his feet only to walk into a huge leg lariat from Steamboat who goes for an optimistic cover: One...Two...Th-No! Galloway gets the arm up but Steamboat is now back in control with 2,000 fans firmly behind him.

    Finish: Steamboat is in control as the match reaches the ten minute point as he takes Galloway down with an enziguri and begins his ascent to the top rope. The crowd favourite steadies himself and is ready to take flight with the cross body only to be foiled by Galloway who manages to scurry back to his feet and in an act of desperation dives towards Steamboat and throws him off the top rope. Steamboat crashes to the outside and lands nastily on the hard cold floor as Galloway looks on, keeping himself propped up by the turnbuckle. His and the crowds attention is diverted however as four masked men surround him in the ring. Galloway gulps and tries to escape from the ring but is stopped from two of the figures who pull him back in the ring and throw him towards one man who knocks him with a huge leg lariat. The four men start delivering boots to a prone Galloway until Steamboat makes his way back in the ring and tries to fight off the men to no avail. The four figures leave Steamboat and Galloway laid out and finally stop their attack when dozens of security members make their way to the ring.

    It's too late however, the damage has been done and the four mystery men make a break for it, exiting through the crowd and past anyone who tries to stop them. A smidgen of boos break out with some unhappy that a brilliant opening match has come to a startling conclusion but most are silent and in disarray at the events that have just transpired. Who were these four men and what are their motives?

    Winner: No Contest

    Aftermath: The arena is shrouded in silence as Jim Ross and Paul Heyman apologise for what has just transpired and stress that it wasn't meant to end in that circumstance. Ross bemoans such an ending to a great opening contest as Paul Heyman questions who is behind this attack and what are they trying to gain from it. The two are interrupted as the feed changes to backstage where scenes are hectic following the mystery interference.

    ***


    Dusty Rhodes is the main figure backstage and is completely losing his mind, berating anyone and everyone in sight. Rhodes is beside himself and is asking everyone where the head of security is. The usually calm and collected 'American Dream' is red in the face, enraged and spitting with every word he enunciates. Finally the head of security is tracked down and appears to be slightly intimidated by a furious Dusty Rhodes who rips into the man.

    Dusty Rhodes: "Get your shit together you stupid son of a bitch! We're out there to thousands on the internet and you can't control simple stuff like this? You get your men together, you get more men and you better make sure that no more men in masks make it in to this arena tonight. If I even hear that a masked man has been within a mile radius of this arena than I will personally make sure you never work a day in your life again! Do you understand me?"

    The head of security takes a gulp and tells Rhodes he can guarantee the rest of the show will go off without a hitch. Rhodes thanks him before sending him on his way, calming down slightly as sweat drips from his forehead. We go from a stressed Dusty Rhodes back to ringside in time for the second match of the evening with the Las Vegas crowd still in shock from the conclusion of Galloway and Steamboat's match.

    ***

    Jim Ross and Paul Heyman divert out attention back to the scenes that tainted the end of the opening match and show a replay of its conclusion where we once again see the four masked men attacking Galloway and then Steamboat. Ross says the show must go on and that security has been strengthened to ensure the show continues without any hitches. Ozzy Osbourne's 'I Don't Wanna Stop' brings everyone back to earth as Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne run out to the entrance ramp before sprinting to the ring, eager to remind everyone that there is more than one match tonight. The pair earn a respectable amount of cheers as they take their place in the ring following their usual entrance of back-flipping from the top turnbuckle back into the ring. Kingston and Bourne talk tactics as they await their opponents for the night.

    Moments later the crowd unite with jeers as Walls of Jericho "The Haunted" blasts over the P.A system signalling the arrival of Jimmy Jacobs and Christopher Daniels. Unlike their opponents, the two men aren't all smiles and look dead set on inflicting as much pain and torture as humanely possible. The duo talk some trash to fans as they make their way down the entrance ramp before joining Bourne and Kingston in the ring. The four men go at it straight away with blood boiling from a feud which has ignited in the last few weeks. Eventually the men are restrained and we are able to begin our second match of the night. Kingston and Jacobs start things off as the bell rings.


    Second Match
    Grudge Match
    Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne vs. Christopher Daniels & Jimmy Jacobs


    Summary: Kingston and Jacobs lock up with Kingston gaining the quick advantage over his smaller opponent. Kofi whips Jacobs into the ropes before taking him down with a quick head-scissors followed by a rapid arm-drag. Kingston keeps a firm hold of Jacobs' arm, wrenching it back before twisting it and forcing Jacobs back to his feet. Jacobs grits his teeth displaying anguish and pain as Kingston twists him around again before flooring him with a huge spinning heel kick. Kingston takes a small break to play up to the crowd slightly but is wary as to not take much time as he drags Jacobs over to Bourne's direction, making the tag. Kingston holds Jacobs over his knee as Bourne springboards in with a sommersault dive ala Eddie Guerrero. Bourne lands on the sternum of Jacobs, sending his back crushing into the raised knee of Kingston, a move which targets both his front and back midriff. Bourne takes over Kingston's good work as the face team enjoy the better of the opening few minutes.

    It isn't too long before Jacobs and Daniels resort to their normal tricks to get back into the match. Bourne's good work is interrupted as Daniels makes his way into the ring, frustrated with how things are playing out, and nearly takes Bourne's head off with a lariat. Kingston takes offence to this but the referee blocks him from entering the ring which allows Jacobs and Daniels to make the most a 2-on-1 advantage as they deliver boots to a floored Bourne. Daniels is quickly tagged in soon after and the fresh man pulls the match back in his side's favour as he demolishes Bourne with a stiff offence, nearly getting the W for his team following a brutal reverse STO. Daniels grows tired of Bourne's relenting and tags out to Jacobs who immediately punishes his opponent with a stiff boot to the chest followed by snap DDT driving Bourne's neck into the mat.

    The match progressed into a stalemate as Kingston got tagged back into things after a desperation enziguri from Bourne starved off Jacobs for a moment. Kingston came in full of fire knocking down Jacobs and then taking down Daniels with a huge dropkick, only to turn into Jacobs who attempted to hit him with a flying forearm only for Kingston to attempt a leg lariat at the same time which resulted in both men clattering into each other mid-air and collapse back to the mat as the match begins to take its toll on all four competitors. The Vegas crowd are on their feet as a thrilling tag match has eventually taken their mind off the events that unfolded earlier. Both men just say beat the ten count with Kingston up at a count of seven and Jacobs up at eight as the match shows no sign of a clear winner.

    Finish: Pandemonium breaks loose at the match steps into one final gear with all four men in the ring. Bourne and Daniels are brawling at one side while Kingston escapes the clutches of Jimmy Jacobs at the other side. Bourne and Kingston sense a turn in their favour as Kingston hobbles backwards just as Bourne shoves Daniels in his direction...Trouble in Paradise! Jacobs looks shocked as Kingston returns to his feet and the two men collide resulting in both tumbling over the top rope and spilling to the outside. Evan Bourne is wide-eyed as he sees an opportunity beckoning. He seizes his chance as he climbs to the top turnbuckle, composing himself before taking full-flight with a beautiful Shooting Star Press. He connects with the move that he dubs 'AirBourne', bouncing off the sternum of Daniels, winding himself slightly with the impact of the move. Bourne rolls backwards in pain before coming to his sense and draping his arm over the chest of Daniels for the three count and the win for his team.

    Winners: Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne (via AirBourne - pinfall)

    Aftermath: Jimmy Jacobs crawls back in the ring but it's seconds too late as Bourne secures victory for himself and Kofi. Kingston returns to the ring and helps Bourne back to his feet and the two begin to embrace as Jacobs kneels over his partner Daniels in disbelief. Bourne holds his ribcage as Kofi raises his hand before the two exit to the back with the fans voicing their delight. Jacobs and Daniels share a few cross words to one another before leaving with their heads down with the taste of defeat swirling around their mouths.

    Backstage, Todd Grisham is with Alex Shelley. Grisham tells Shelley that Candice Michelle was scheduled to interview him but refused after Shelley's behaviour towards her a few weeks ago. Shelley is wearing dark sunglasses and shrugs his shoulders telling Grisham it's 'her loss'. Grisham seems a little lost for words before asking Shelley for his thoughts ahead of his loser leaves town match with Jerry Lynn later tonight. Shelley is as confident and arrogant as ever with his reply.

    Alex Shelley: "Do I look like a loser to you Grisham? Seriously? Is this the body of a loser? Do you hear a loser talking right now? No, you don't. Look at my opponent tonight for a second Griswald. He's a washed-up never-been, has an injured leg that I assure you I will target throughout the match and let's face it his best days are firmly behind him. And then you have myself - Alex Shelley - the new star of NWA! My future is so bright Grizzler that I've got to wear these shades! I'm hotter than the sun, baby! And after I beat Lynn tonight, I'm going to go to all the Vegas casinos and make aquiantences with some of Vegas' most beautiful women. And if they're lucky enough they might just get to taste what a winner tastes like - if you get what I'm saying because -"

    Shelley stops mid-sentence and takes his attention away from Todd Grisham to a taller figure that has walked into camera shot: Austin Aries. Aries and Shelley look one another up and down for a moment before Aries takes Shelley's glasses from his face and stamps on them much to the chagrin of Alex Shelley. Shelley is fuming but he knows better than to start a fight with Aries who sizes Shelley up and down before shaking his head in amusement.

    Austin Aries: "You haven't learned, have you? I thought that maybe, just maybe, what happened at A Fistful of Matches might have helped you to start take things seriously but no, here you are with your cheesy glasses, rip-off phrases and false bravado ahead of the biggest match of your career. You're going to need a lot of luck tonight."

    Aries looks at Shelley with a look of disgust before beginning to walk off only to be stopped in his tracks by Shelley, who looks to have been nerved by what Aries had just said. For once Shelley isn't full of jokes and cockiness, he isn't intimidated by Aries and has something to get off his chest.

    Alex Shelley: "The last time I checked Aries, it's not just me that may be facing the reality of wrestling his last match in this promotion tonight. You also have a match tonight that determines your future. Like it or not Aries, both of us may be without a job tonight, although I assure you that I will do everything in my power to make sure that at least one of us is still here after tonight. You're looking at the future of this company Aries, and I'm deadly serious about that."

    Shelley and Aries go face to face and it looks for a moment like the two are going to go to blows but Aries backs off and smiles in the direction of Shelley before delivering one final statement.

    Austin Aries: "You know what? I'd like to think that both of us will survive tonight and have a future here because I think, no scratch that, I know our paths are going to meet again and who knows? It might just be me who beats the seriousness into you. I'd like that..."

    Aries laughs before leaving Shelley to contemplate what he had just said. Grisham tries to get more out of Shelley but Shelley snaps, shoving Grisham out of the way before leaving, less than pleased that Aries had got the final say in their war of words.

    Back at ringside, Jim Ross and Paul Heyman discuss the upcoming match, a rematch from the last iPPV between Roderick Strong and Low Ki. We are treated to a quick replay of last month's match and we see Low Ki dismantle the leg of Strong before making him submit with the Dragon Clutch. Heyman and Ross discuss Strong's chances and say that it all depends on how he copes with Ki's kicking offence - if Strong can avoid Ki's stiff kicks than he'll stand a better chance of victory. Strong enters moments later as Pantera's "5 Minutes Alone" blares across the arena and out comes an intense Roderick Strong. Strong doesn't receive the same warm welcome as he did the previous month with Jim Ross reminding us how this rematch has become an obsession for Strong in recent weeks and as a result has changed his behaviour and attitude.

    Low Ki is greeted with a strong reception as 50 Cent and Tupac's "Realist Killers" plays over the P.A. Ki is oblivious to the cheers, too pumped up to even notice the crowd are fully behind him despite his foreign allegiances. Ki stomps his way to the ring, power-walking down the entrance ramp before impressively jumping up to the ring apron. He does a slit-throat gesture in the direction of Roderick Strong who screws up his fists, ready to right his wrongs. The two men pace around the ring, their eyes transfixed upon one another before jumping into a tie-up. The bell rings and the rematch is underway.


    Third Match
    A Fistful of Matches Rematch
    Roderick Strong vs. Low Ki


    Summary: Immediately Ki tries to go for the stiff kicks to Strong's legs, the same tactic that helped him win the duo's encounter at A Fistful of Matches. Strong is wiser and he avoids a swift kick in the early goings, before going one better by catching Ki's leg on the second attempt. Strong grins knowing he has Ki in an awkward position but nearly gets decapitated as Ki fires back with an enziguri around the side of Strong's head. Strong collapses to the mat as Ki thinks about his next move, trying to come up with a back-up plan as it appears Strong has the kicks well scouted. Ki begins to work at the abdomen of Strong, warming him up for the move that put him away in their previous match - the Dragon Clutch. Ki stretches Strong out before wrapping his legs around his mid-section, putting more strain on his body. Strong relents so Ki ups the pressure, slapping Strong in the face with a backhand slap before riving his elbow across Strong's face in addition to the hold he had trapped on Strong's mid-section. Strong shows signs of fading but uses all of his body weight and strength to return to a vertical position with Ki beginning to worry. Ki tries in vain to work Strong back down to his knees but Strong refuses and throws himself backwards, crushing Ki on the mat and successfully breaking the hold. The crowd applaud in appreciation as Strong tries to catch his breath back and get back into the driving seat.

    Strong and Ki return to their feet at the same time with Strong staggering towards Ki who tries to take him straight back down with a flying headscissors only to see his effort thwarted as Strong counters with a brutal tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Ki's back and spine fold into the right knee of Strong who snarls with pleasure upon delivery. The impact can be heard around the arena and sparks a resurgence in the match for Strong who spends the next portion of the match working away at the back of Ki, much like Ki worked away at his leg in their previous bout. Strong tortures his opponent, driving his knee right into the center of his back while stretching out his arms at the same time, trying to make him submit. Ki gritted his teeth before howling out in pain, trying to shuffle over to the bottom ropes but Strong dragged him back. Ki tried again, on this occasion twisting his body and rocking back and forth before finally getting into enough space to stretch his left leg and drape it across the bottom rope to break the hold. Strong was furious, dragging Ki back to a vertical base before raising him in the air by both arms, keeping him raised for a few seconds before spinning him around and letting him fall, landing once again back first into Strong's raised knees. Ki thudded off Strong's knees before collapsing to the mat, clutching his back and screaming in pain. Strong went for the pin believing he had done enough for the win: One...Two...Thr-No! Ki gets the arm up, he's not going to give this one up without a fight.

    Ki continued to show the fighting spirit that is synonymous with Japanese competitors as Strong threw everything at him in an attempt to get the win he had been craving for weeks. Ki tried to fight back, delivering a huge kick to Strong's calf with chopping away at his chest but Strong fought back with a headbutt before a kick of his own, taking Ki down with a huge Yakuza Kick. Strong looked confident that Ki was all but done as he hooked him in, looking for a Gibson Driver. Ki tried to fight but Strong locked him in before hoisting him up and drilling him back down - the Gibson Driver connects! Strong doesn't waste anytime, diving back towards Ki and hooking his leg for the One...Two...Three! No! Noooo! Ki gets his leg on the rope at 2.9, right at the very last split-second! Strong celebrates but is soon in hysterics as the referee diverts his attention to the bottom rope where Ki has his leg. Strong is enraged and he begins to kick away at the leg of Ki, stomping again and again until he is warned by the referee. Strong does the same slit throat gesture he received from Ki earlier as his obsession begins to drive him over the edge.

    Finish: With almost fifteen minutes on the clock, Strong looks for that one last move to finish off Low Ki who has managed to kick out of everything Strong has had to offer including his finishing move. Ki is whipped into the corner as Strong follows with a big clothesline before working him over in the corner with forearms and chops. Strong grabs Ki by the neck and tells him it's over as he lifts him up and places him onto the top turnbuckle before joining him. Strong tries to hook Ki in for a Super Gibson Driver but Ki still has enough sense to fight out, fighting for his life as Strong attempts to nail a move that could keep any opponent down for ten seconds, nevermind three. Ki does enough and lands a huge headbutt on Strong that sends him staggering backwards, he grabs the ropes out of desperation as he barely hangs on. Ki and Strong's eyes meet as Ki knows he now has Strong's number before hitting him with a big Mongolian Chop around the head, leaving Strong dazed and confused as he falls from the top rope and crashes feet below to the canvas. Ki's eyes widen as he knows he now has the match in his grasp, he composes himself before...Warrior's Way! Ki launches himself from the top before darting down two-footed into the chest of Strong connecting with the Warrior's Way. Ki skids off his chest and into the canvas before crawling over and hooking the leg for the three and a second successive victory over Strong.

    Winner: Low Ki (via Warrior's Way - Pinfall)

    Aftermath: Ki celebrates his hard fought victory, clutching his back as he hobbles back up the entrance ramp, his name being chanted by those in attendance who have quickly fell in love with his hard-hitting style and never give up attitude. Back in the ring Roderick Strong finally comes to and throws a tantrum when he realises he was once again bettered by Low Ki. Strong leaves the ring, kicking the ropes in frustration before heading up the entrance ramp, a dejected figure.

    Backstage, we see Jerry Lynn and AJ Styles conversing outside their locker room. Styles has a look of worry across his face before the two embrace. Styles slaps Lynn on the shoulder and tells him to go out there and give it his all. Lynn promises he'll give nothing less before turning on his heels and heading towards the ring. We are just moments away from a massive Loser Leaves Town match and the crowd begins to buzz with anticipation!

    ***

    A video package documents the long-drawn feud between Alex Shelley and Jerry Lynn - starting back at Flair for the Gold Night I when Shelley attacked Lynn post-match, and raging on in the months that have elapsed since. We see Shelley challenging Lynn to the match and the ups and downs from both men that have gone on since. A still of Shelley and Lynn face to face ends the package before we return to ringside where Jim Ross and Paul Heyman are billing the match as the biggest in NWA Resurrection's history thus far. Heyman and Ross both say they've known Lynn for many years, since the early 90's in WCW and speculate that Lynn is the underdog in this contest. Ross reminds us of Lynn's injured leg but says that Alex Shelley can't afford to take Lynn lightly otherwise his NWA career will end tonight. Right on cue, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's "Weapon of Choice" sends the Smith Center into jeers with Alex Shelley arriving on the entrance ramp. Shelley's cockiness from earlier has evaporated and with Austin Aries' words still ringing in his ears, he looks more focused and serious than ever, something both Ross and Heyman comment upon.

    Shelley takes his place in the ring, not bothering to pose or taunt the crowd and instead he leans against the turnbuckles preparing himself for the biggest match of his career thus far. The arena is soon filled with cheers as the sound of Fear Factory's "Replica" surrounds the Smith Center and moments later Jerry Lynn arrives onto the entrance ramp. Lynn takes in the crowd for a moment, a smile stretching across his worn face as Paul Heyman comments it may be the last time Lynn comes out onto the NWA entrance ramp to wrestle a match. It's a touching moment as he finally begins to walk down the entrance ramp with energy and excitement that could be mistaken for a competitor wrestling his first match, not potentially his last. Lynn joins Shelley in the ring and immediately Shelley begins to talk trash. Lynn is composed but loses his rag when Shelley spits his gum in his direction. Lynn flies at Shelley with a forearm as the bell rings and our Loser Leaves Town match gets underway.


    Fourth Match
    Loser Leaves Town Match
    Jerry Lynn vs. Alex Shelley


    Summary: "Let's go Jerry!" chants echo around the Smith Center as Lynn and Shelley wrestle around on the floor with Shelley desperately trying to get a hold of Lynn's right knee, the same knee Shelley injured a few weeks ago on Tuesday Night Showcase. The veteran is smart however and he destroys Shelley with elbows to the chest and then face in a bid to keep him away from the knee. The elbows hinder Shelley's attack and allows Lynn to keep him away from the knee for a few moments longer. Lynn fires back with a number of knife-edge chops and forearm smashes before delivering a beautiful standing dropkick, delivered with enough power to send Shelley hurling through the ropes and out of the ring. Lynn looks around the arena, soaking up the energy on display before flying over the ropes with a beautiful plancha to knock Shelley back down. Lynn rises to his feet immediately, slightly favouring his knee but he raises his arm in the air and plays to the crowd who are fully behind him. Lynn drags Shelley back up and rolls him into the ring only for Shelley to sneak back up and chop down his right knee with a leg block. Lynn collapses onto his knees, biting his lip in an attempt not to scream in pain before Shelley delivers a shining wizard to the face, knocking him down completely. Shelley refocuses himself and begins to work on Lynn's knee. He begins targeting it for the next section of the match, dissecting his opponent by working away at the limb, hyper extending then striking Lynn's right knee.

    Shelley has slowed the pace of the match down which the crowd don't react kindly too. Shelley taunts the crowd with a Ric Flair-esque strut as he walks around the ring dragging Lynn by the knee with him, before dropping an elbow right down on the knee, locking in a leg lock and working away at Lynn's knee with elbow after elbow yelling at him to submit. Lynn calls him a 'son of a bitch' before spitting in his face. Shelley releases the hold and wipes the spit out of his face as he returns to his feet. Lynn attempts to scramble back up to his feet as Shelley shoots him a look of disgust before firing away with repeated stomps to Lynn's knee before finishing with a flying knee drop. Lynn wisely rolls out of the ring and attempts to buy some time as Shelley poses in the center of the ring, doing the same pose as Olympian Usain Bolt and declaring to everyone in attendance that he is the "best of all time". Shelley watches Lynn crawl back in the ring and begins to laugh at how pathetic he appears. Shelley casually strolls over to Lynn, but he underestimates his opponent and Lynn draws him in with a roll-up: One...Two...Thr-No! Shelley bundles out with a look or horror across his face, he realises how close he was to losing out of nowhere. All of a sudden he goes straight back on the attack and fires back with kicks and elbows to Lynn's knee before locking in a figure-four-leg-lock! Shelley drags Lynn into the center of the ring away from the ropes with the hold firmly locked in with pressure applied to Lynn's hurt knee. Shelley tears away but Lynn doesn't give up, instead trying to find a way to claw to the ropes only for Shelley to drag him back immediately. The crowd rally behind their man as Shelley has the hold locked in hard, Lynn goes for his back-up and begins to gain some momentum, using the crowd's energy and feeding from it before twisting from side to side in an attempt to reverse the hold. Finally, Lynn gets enough momentum to turn onto his belly and force the hold onto Shelley! The crowd cheer with delight as Lynn turns the tables on Shelley and has the hold locked in, in the middle of the ring. Shelley screams in agony as Lynn props himself up to try and force more pressure on his opponent. Shelley claws and scrapes but Lynn drags him back in! Shelley finally finds a way out, contorting his body before kicking out at Lynn who goes flying back and releases the hold, both men drained from the submission. The reversal allows Lynn to catch his breath and tend to his knee as Shelley too tries to recoup some energy. A valiant match begins to take its toll as both men reach their feet just before the ten count, trading blows as the match passes the fifteen minute point.

    The figure-four-leg-lock reversal proved to be a turning point in the match as Lynn gained heart from the reversal and enjoyed the next few minutes as he went close on numerous occasions to ending Shelley's NWA career, first with a swinging neckbreaker and secondly by a great counter to Shelley's Lionsault attempt, moving out of the danger position before catching Shelley with a lungblower after he'd done well to land on his feet. The move took a great deal out of Lynn and the few seconds that it took for him to hook the leg proved to be costly as Shelley got his arm up before the three count. Lynn went for the Package Piledriver to try and put Shelley away but his knee buckled and allowed Shelley to counter, hoisting Lynn up before dropping him square on his back and locking in a Half Boston Crab, focusing on the injured right knee, once again trying to make him submit. Lynn was quick this time scrambling to the ropes, kicking Shelley away sending him staggering back before connecting with a Superkick, using his hurt leg which resulted in him not getting enough power in the kick to keep him down for the three. The move did however keep Lynn with a survivors chance as the match crept to the twenty minute point.

    Finish: Fatigue begins to play a huge part of the match as a mammoth effort begins to effect Lynn's performance. A cerebral Shelley begins to take advantage as he goes through signature move after signature move in an attempt to keep the veteran down. The crowd raise the volume to get behind Lynn as Shelley grabs a hold of his neck and begins sprinting towards the turnbuckles preparing for Slicedbread #2 but no! Lynn blocks and throws Shelley over his back only for Shelley to land on his feet behind Lynn and hoist him up from behind, attempting a back suplex. Lynn too lands on his feet after slipping behind Shelley but he hurts his knee slightly on landing allowing Shelley to take advantage with a roll-up: One...Two...Thre-No! Lynn uses his momentum to roll back through and leave Shelley in pinning predicament: One...Two...Three-No! Oh, so close but Shelley bursts out of the pin at the last second and scrambles back to his feet before running back at Lynn, only to rolled up with an inside cradle! One...Two...Shelley rolls back and now Lynn's shoulders are pinned against the mat: One...Two...Shelley grabs a handful of Lynn's trunks...Three! Lynn bursts out but it's too late! The referee has already counted to three and the crowd falls silent with shock.

    Winner: Alex Shelley (via inside cradle - pinfall)

    Aftermath: Shelley crawls away from Lynn and rolls out of the ring celebrating the win as if he had just won the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. Lynn is distraught in the ring, close to tears as he returns to his feet with his hands on his hips. Lynn limps forward slightly and almost doubles over from exhaustion as the fans begin to chant "Jerry" in appreciation for all his efforts. Tears begin to roll down his cheek as he puts his hand up and thanks the crowd for their respect. He asks for a microphone from ringside but we don't get to hear a farewell speech as Alex Shelley rolls back in the ring and blindsights Lynn. The noise is deafening as the crowd boo and jeer Shelley for his actions. Shelley laughs as he nails Lynn with a Lionsault before raising his arm in the air, basking in the crowd's fury. The ring gets littered with rubbish as the fans throw anything in their possession at Shelley who soon exits the ring and heads up the entrance ramp, his job done and his career safe, glowing with the knowledge that he has ended Jerry Lynn's NWA: Resurrection career. We see one final shot of Jerry Lynn lying in the ring surrounded by debris, a defeated man.

    We see a split screen of the respective tag teams just moments ahead of the NWA World Tag Team Championship match. Paul London and Brian Kendrick are all smiles, making jokes as they exit their locker room with Kendrick shoving a backstage official for the hell of it, purely for his and Paul's amusement. On the other side of the split screen Jay and Mark Briscoe are huddled together discussing a game plan, before chest bumping and high fiving one another. Their intensity is on a whole different level as they charge towards the entrance ramp with every onlooker hoping they'll give the arrogant champions a beating they'll never forget.

    ***

    Back at ringside, the ring is now clear and ready for the fifth contest of the night, and the first title match of the evening. Jim Ross and Paul Heyman recall the finish to the last match and bemoan the lack of respect Alex Shelley showed for a legend like Jerry Lynn as well as the entire audience. Ross says there is no doubt that Shelley is a fine performer but his attitude stinks. Heyman agrees and says it saddens him to see an ECW hero like Jerry Lynn have to hang up his boots. The duo's attention is snapped back to the ring where Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Gimme Back My Bullets" plays, signalling the arrival of the challengers. Jay and Mark Briscoe walk out onto the entrance ramp and receive a huge positive reaction from the Vegas crowd who are hoping for new champions to be crowned tonight. The two brother's charge down to the ring meaning business, taking their place in the ring to await their opponents, the champions that have more than got under their skin in recent weeks.

    Londrick arrive onto the entrance ramp with Tomoyasu Hotei's 'Battle Without Honor or Humanity' surrounding the arena accompanied by boos and jeers. The NWA World Tag Team Champions are all smiles and laughs, somewhat of an oxymoron when you consider their serious entrance theme. They join their challengers in the ring, back-flipping from the top turnbuckles, landing on their feet with the expressions on their face that is to be expected from their show-off selfs. The two men share a light-hearted joke as they look in the direction of The Briscoe Brothers who look like they want nothing more than to break some skulls and win that championship gold. The official holds the tag titles high in the air and the bell rings with Paul London and Mark Briscoe starting things off for their respective teams. Our first title match of the evening begins.


    Fifth Match
    NWA World Tag Team Championship Match
    Paul London & Brian Kendrick (C) vs. Jay Briscoe & Mark Briscoe


    Summary: Mark Briscoe squirms out of a tie-up before smashing London down with a huge flying forearm. London quickly gets back up only for Briscoe to club him with chops and forearm smashes before dropping him down with an atomic drop and bulldog combination. The Briscoe Brothers get out of the blocks the quickest and show good teamwork by exchanging quick tags to keep London at bay, making a perfect start to the championship match. London struggles as Jay Briscoe enters the fray, flying from the top rope and springboarding into the ring, knocking his opponent down with a springboard clothesline. The Briscoe's continue to keep London away from Kendrick and try to wear him down in his respective corner. Brian Kendrick has had enough, frustrated on the ring apron he decides to take action, charging in the ring only to be taken down by Mark Briscoe who springboards into the ring and knocks Kendrick down with a springboard elbow! The referee is distracted however and that is enough for London to take advantage as he hits Jay with a low blow from behind followed by a desperation DDT, drilling Jay head-first into the mat. The move buys him some precious time and moments later he makes the tag in to the fresh Brian Kendrick, who takes advantage of the situation. He first stops Jay from making the tag, flying in before hitting an elbow to Jay's sternum then returning to his feet and delivering a beautiful standing dropkick to Mark, knocking him from the ring apron and to the outside. Paul London sees an opportunity and returns to the ring using Kendrick as a platform, stepping off his back and launching himself at Mark on the outside with a beautiful Shooting Star Plancha! The crowd voice their appreciation for a stunning move as Kendrick controls Jay back in the ring, the match now in Londrick's favour.

    London and Kendrick impress at the match progress, showcasing a crisp and smooth offence as they seek to successfully retain their gold at the first time of asking. They display great teamwork with Jay Briscoe being on the receiving end of a flapjack from Kendrick which results into a hard dropkick to the face from London, not quite enough to get the three but still enough to slow down the younger Briscoe brother. Kendrick slows things down as the match progresses, keeping his opponent trapped on the mat with a chinlock before turning it into a headlock. Jay fights out however and returns to a vertical base, attempting to back suplex Kendrick but Kendrick lands on his feet and takes Briscoe straight back down with a calf kick to the face before tagging in London who continues his dirty work. Jay finally finds a way out as London slips up taking too much time with a dropsault attempt allowing Jay to move out of the way and roll through to tag in his older brother Mark who comes charging in the ring and takes London down with a leg lariat before taking his partner Kendrick down with a running knee to the face sending Kendrick nastily crashing into the guardrail on the outside. London staggers back to his feet and falls in the direction of Mark who annihilates him with a running knee followed by a double powerbomb, folding London up like an accordion. Mark goes for the pin but London somehow gets his arm up at 2 and three quarters, his gold belt engraved in his mind as an incentive to kick out of anything that comes his way.

    The match passes the ten minute stage with Jay and Mark Briscoe in the driver's seat, London and Kendrick continue to show great spirit and a never say die attitude but the brothers continue to pick up momentum with it looking increasingly likely that we will have new champions. London tries to fight back with lefts and rights but Jay cuts him off, blocking his punch before trapping his arm and tagging in Mark who comes crashing down from the top with a missile dropkick with Jay following up with a belly-to-back suplex for good measure. Brian Kendrick is stirring on the outside and he sees his partner in trouble, Kendrick crawls along the hard floor on the outside unnoticed by Jay and Mark with the commentary team speculating that Kendrick is up to no good.

    Finish: Just moments later Mark has London on his shoulders with Jay ascending to the top rope ready for the Doomsday Device. The crowd hold their breath with anticipation only to yell with fury as Brian Kendrick darts a chair at Jay, knocking him from the top rope and to the outside. The referee calls for the bell as Mark releases London and looks at Kendrick in disbelief. Kendrick holds himself up by the ropes and is positioned on the ring apron laughing in the face of Mark who is ready to attack out of anger and frustration until London cheap shots him from behind. The Briscoes have won as a result of disqualification but Londrick retain the belts!

    Winners: The Briscoe Brothers (via DQ)

    Aftermath: Kendrick re-enters the ring and joins in the attack with London as they deliver the boots to Mark Briscoe. Jay Briscoe is still knocked out on the outside and is unable to help as his brother falls victim to a vicious 2-on-1 attack. The champions seem delighted with themselves and high-five one another for their cunning plan working a treat. Kendrick picks up a fallen Mark Briscoe and hooks him in as London watches and waits...Get Well Soon! Mark collapses with a thud as London and Kendrick kneel over his body. Jay Briscoe crawls back in the ring but is moments too late and quickly finds himself on the receiving end of the Get Well Soon, just as his brother had seconds earlier. The champions stand over their challengers, raising their belts high for everyone to see as the crowd target their anger at the duo. Ross speculates that it won't be the last time these four men share the same ring as the scene changes to the backstage area.

    Backstage, KENTA is busy training in preparation for his NWA World Heavyweight Championship bout with AJ Styles. KENTA is shadow boxing, sweat dripping from his brow and his breath heavy, moments away from the biggest match of his North American wrestling career thus far.

    KENTA: "Ichi, ni, san, shi! Ichi, ni, san, shi! Ichi, ni, san, shi!"

    Jim Ross and Paul Heyman begin to buzz with excitement as the Smith Center anticipates the next match, a Las Vegas Street Fight between Austin Aries and John Morrison with Aries' future in the balance. If Aries wins than he is immediately reinstated, however if he loses his suspension continues to be an indefinite suspension and his future will be left up in the air. The self-proclaimed 'Savior of Pro-Wrestling' makes his entrance to the ring coming out to Marylin Manson's "Personal Jesus". Time doesn't make the heart grow fonder for the Vegas fans as they boo and yell at Aries who calmly walks down the entrance ramp ahead of a crucial match that could change his career for better or worse. He enters the ring and looks around the crowd, shooting them a stare of disgust as he awaits the arrival of John Morrison.

    The crowd unite in cheers as The Door's Roadhouse Blues screeches across the P.A system and out walks John Morrison onto the entrance ramp. Morrison pauses on the ramp for a moment and looks behind his shoulder before Terry Funk walks into view! Back in the ring Aries' eyes widen up with anger, his face beginning to contort with rage as Terry Funk accompanies Morrison to the ring. The crowd raise the volume to voice their appreciation for the legendary Funk as Morrison enters the ring and gets in the face of Aries who is focused upon Funk. Funk stays on the outside and joins the commentary team of Paul Heyman and Jim Ross telling the pair he wanted to witness Aries receive an ass kicking up close and personal. Ross tells him he has the best seat in the house as Aries' attention returns to John Morrison. The pair trade insults and talk trash as the bell rings and the penultimate match of the evening gets underway!


    Sixth Match
    Las Vegas Street Fight
    Austin Aries vs. John Morrison


    Summary: Morrison goes straight for Aries but he ducks and rolls out of the ring and straight underneath the ring apron where he grabs a steel chair and heads over into the direction of Terry Funk at the commentary booth. Morrison rushes out but is quickly on the receiving end of a chair shot to the ribs from Aries who grins with sick satisfaction that his early plan has worked a treat. Aries rolls Morrison in the ring and joins him in the ring with the chair after sharing some choice words with Funk at the commentary table who calls Aries a 'piece of shit'. Aries tortures Morrison with chair shot after chair shot, not allowing him to return to his feet as the match begins with a heinous start, two minutes in and already Morrison is battered and bruised. Aries holds the chair up in the air as if it were a championship belt declaring that he deserves respect before delivering a chair-assisted elbow drop to Morrison's sternum. Aries folds the chair and stands it up before placing Morrison on the chair, moving behind him and standing over him before clubbing him with elbow after elbow to the collarbone, finally stopping after six clubbing elbows which result in Morrison collapsing off the chair and onto the canvas. Aries stands over the hurt and suffering body of Morrison before kicking the chair out of the ring and going for the cover: One...Two...Thre-No! Morrison kicks out refusing to be beaten so earlier in the match. Aries reconsiders his gameplan as the first five minutes of the match elapse.

    Aries starts to taunt Funk at the announce desk more as the match progresses, his attention slipping away from Morrison and this proves costly as Aries leans over the ropes to talk trash to Funk just moments after his savage attack of Morrison with elbows. Morrison returns to the ring with steel chair regaining Aries' attention before throwing a steel chair at him to catch, setting up a brutal flying Chuck kick! Morrison springboards from the ropes beautifully before drilling his foot into the chair and face of Aries sending him flying out of the ring and next to the announce desk. Morrison catches his breath before signalling to Terry Funk who nods in approval, watching as Aries returns to his feet on the outside only to walk into a chair-assisted suicide dive as Morrison crashes through the ropes with steel chair in hand before connecting with Aries' skull! The crowd cheer and chant in adoration for Morrison on the edge of their seat, fully aware they are witnessing something special here tonight. Morrison hurts himself slightly after the move through the ropes but crawls to the ring apron and drags out another weapon - this time a ladder! Morrison sets the ladder up but walks into Aries who catches him with a step-up enziguri to buy time, a desperation move as he feels the match slowly slipping out of his grasp.

    Moments later Aries returns to his feet, beating Morrison by a couple of seconds but the two begin to trade blows, desperately trying to gain the upper hand until finally Morrison gets the better of his adversary with blow after blow sending him staggering back onto the announce table. Morrison beats away at Aries until finally Aries is spread across the announce desk and doesn't appear although he'll be returning to his feet in a hurry. The three-man announce team step away from the table with Funk cheering Morrison on who is now slowly but surely ascending the steel rungs of the ladder. Morrison is almost at the top when Aries comes back to and begins to join him on the ladder much to the horror of Morrison who had been hoping to connect with Starship Pain, a move that would put the nail in the coffin of Aries' career in NWA. Aries latches onto the leg of Morrison and begins beating away at his midsection with punch after punch before finally joining him right at the top of the ladder. Aries lands a couple of kidney shots before attempting to hit a huge backdrop driver from the ladder and through the announce desk. He hoists Morrison up and the two go hurling backwards but Morrison counters brilliantly mid-air, changing the momentum so he is now on top of Aries before the men go crashing through the announce table with Aries getting the brunt of the impact! The commentary team praise Morrison for a fantastic mid-air reversal as we are treat to replays of the stunning move. The crowd gasp and begin to lose their mind as they struggle to comprehend how physical the match has been from the get-go. Both Morrison and Aries are out and not stirring, surrounded by pieces of broken table, the match starting to take it's toll on both competitor's bodies.

    Morrison is the first back in the ring following the move and Aries soon follows crawling over to the ring apron and dragging himself into the ring where Morrison is now on both knees. He is hurt but still drags Aries up and locks him in for Moonlight Drive! He connects and Aries thuds off the canvas with the match looking all but over: One...Two...Thre-No! Aries gets the arm up out of nowhere! Morrison rolls away with his eyes widening in shock that Aries was able to kick out after everything he has put him through. Morrison watches on in disbelief as Aries drags himself up by the ropes and back to a vertical position, not giving up his NWA career without a fight. Morrison loses his calm head and rushes towards Aries who strikes him with a European uppercut sending Morrison staggering before grabbing him by the neck, locking him in and hoisting him up before delivering a devastating brainbuster! Morrison smashes off the canvas, sprawled out from one of the most dangerous moves in the industry. Aries rolls around and hooks the leg for a certain victory: One...Two...Th-No! What? Aries gets up before the referee can count to three, a sick smile on his face as he returns to his feet and points at Terry Funk who is at the announce desk. He wants to punish and finish off Funk before ending things with Morrison who hasn't showed any signs of movement after receiving the Brainbuster.

    Finish: Aries takes a microphone from near the announce desk and begins to speak, Funk watching his every move with Morrison still down and out in the ring.

    Austin Aries: "Did you see that Funk? I had your boy beaten but I chose not to pin him. I could have quite easily taken the win and then came over here and addressed you but wins and losses do not matter a damn bit to me anymore Funk. You have changed me, you have created this animal inside of me and now I care only for inflicting hurt and pain among those who stand in my way. It doesn't matter if I win or lose here now because the NWA will forever be cursed by Austin Aries. You will never be free from me, the saviour of professional wrestling!"

    Funk has heard enough and he launches himself over the announce table onto Aries! Funk takes it to Aries with lefts and rights but the stronger and younger Aries turns the tables and blasts him repeatedly with forearm smashes. Aries slaps him in the face before screaming at him that he is finished, going under the ring apron and taking out yet another steel chair. Aries drills Funk in the ribs with the chair before throwing it in the ring and dragging Funk along with him back into the ring. The crowd begin to boo as Aries points down at Morrison who is still flat out on the floor, telling Funk that he has no one to save him. He throws Funk down to the ground before setting up the chair in the center of the ring, ready for it to connect with Funk's cranium. Aries picks Funk up and hoists him up ready for a brainbuster to the steel chair - the same move that hospitalized Funk weeks prior. He can't connect as John Morrison comes to Funk's aid with a last ditch leg block! Aries drops Funk and drops to both knees as Morrison slowly gets back to his feet, still shaken from the brainbuster he received moments earlier. Morrison grabs the steel chair that was set up to inflict punishment on Funk stalking Aries to return to his feet before smashing him with it in the ribs sending Aries doubled over in pain. Morrison sets the chair on the canvas before hooking Aries in and connecting with a second Moonlight Drive, this time aided by the steel chair! Aries' skull bounces off the chair and moments later Morrison crawls over and drapes his arm over his body. Terry Funk drags himself back to his feet as the referee counts: One...Two...Three! Morrison has done it! A vicious Las Vegas Street Fight has resulted in John Morrison and Terry Funk gaining some form of retribution as well as Austin Aries having to now face an indefinite suspension.

    Winner: John Morrison (via Moonlight Drive onto a steel chair - pinfall)

    Aftermath: Funk helps Morrison back to his feet after an exhausting, brutal battle. The two embrace before Morrison holds Funks arm high in the air as the two men stand over a fallen Aries. Ross and Heyman run out of superlatives to describe a thrilling encounter as we are treated to replays that document and highlight the most gripping and exciting parts of the match-up. The crowd enjoy the feel-good moment with Morrison and Funk who soon exit up the ramp after soaking in cheers and applause from the Vegas audience. The last we see of Aries is him staggering up the entrance ramp, too dazed and confused to complain. Ross questions whether it will be the last we see of Austin Aries in an NWA: Resurrection ring.

    A video airs promoting next month's iPPV entitled True Grit. The video shows the New York skyline and pans around Times Square before settling on the world-famous Hammerstein Ballroom. Placebo's 'Running up that Hill' blasts along to the hype video as we see highlights of some of NWA: Resurrection's biggest stars in action. A voiceover tells us that True Grit will emanate from the Hammerstein Ballroom, New York City, only on iPPV, next month! We see one more shot of AJ Styles connecting with the Spiral Tap before the video fades to black.

    ***

    The crowd cheer and yell as the excitement in the Smith Center reaches fever pitch just moments away from the NWA World Heavyweight Championship main event. Jim Ross says that tonight has been an emotional night but tells us that the 'best is yet to come', putting over both men ahead of the championship match. Ross and Heyman discuss KENTA, the talent on loan from Pro-Wrestling NOAH reminding us that he is undefeated in NWA, winning all five of his matches in impressive fashion. Ross says that KENTA is unlike anyone AJ Styles has faced before adding that his championship reign is in massive jeopardy and he can't afford to underestimate the Japanese competitor. The man they're talking about makes his entrance to the ring soon after as Twista's "Art & Life" plays over the personal announcement system with the crowd giving a mixed reaction upon KENTA's arrival. KENTA is indifferent to the reaction as he marches down to the ring with his mind focused solely on the title bout that awaits him. He rolls in the ring and begins to shadow box as his entrance music fades away as is replaced.

    Fort Minor's "Remember the Name" begins to play but can barely be heard as the roof nearly explodes off the arena, the Vegas crowd show their appreciation and adoration for the champion, AJ Styles. Styles walks onto the entrance ramp, pausing for a moment before swinging his head back to throw off his hood. He throws his arm out by his side and basks in the cheers of the crowd before clapping his championship belt and pointing towards KENTA in the ring. He wastes no time in joining KENTA in the ring, eager to get some retribution for KENTA's attacks on him in the past few weeks. Styles kisses his championship belt before giving it to the official. The two men stare at one another for a few seconds before beginning to slowly circle the ring. They get faster and faster before launching themselves at one another: a tie-up, the bell rings and our NWA World Heavyweight Championship Main Event gets underway!


    Main Event
    NWA World Heavyweight Championship Match
    AJ Styles (C) vs. KENTA


    Summary: Styles and KENTA struggle and fight to try and pin the other to the ground, with KENTA finally removing himself from the tie-up and hitting Styles with a stinging stiff kick to the side of his ribs before spinning around and connecting with an open-hand slap around the head, leaving Styles dizzy. Styles staggers back towards KENTA who picks him up and flapjacks him against the ropes before running off the ropes and taking Styles down with a leg lariat, showcasing both great speed and agility. He doesn't take time to pose or taunt the crowd, instead intent on wearing down AJ Styles, strategic and calculated with a ruthless attack on the champion. KENTA takes the attack to the corner of the ring, connecting with a flurry of chops before spinning around and clocking Styles in the face with his left elbow, leaving him slumped against the turnbuckle. KENTA takes a few paces back before running and jumping towards Styles with a running knee lift to the face. Styles staggers forward before KENTA catches him half-way down, locks him in and sweeps him back down with a beautiful uranage: One...Two...Styles kicks out! KENTA picks Styles back up immediately and attempts the Burning Hammer, a move made famous by Kenta Kobashi who had history with KENTA. Styles ducks! Pele Kick out of nowhere, a desperation move but enough for Styles to derail the challenger's momentum and rework his way back into the match.

    Styles controls the next few minutes, capitalising on the big-time move that swung the match back in his favour. He begins by sweeping KENTA back down with a reverse hurricunrana, spiking KENTA head-first into the canvas with the brutal maneuver. KENTA looks in a daze as he stumbles back to his feet with Styles continuing his onslaught with a discus clothesline, followed by a step-up enziguri knocking his opponent down and leaving him flat out on the mat. KENTA tried to get back to his feet but fell back down with the attack to his head beginning to take it's toll. He fell on his backside before Styles connected with a running straight kick to the face, hooking the leg, confident it was enough: One...Two...KENTA kicks out with authority. He came here to win a championship and won't give the fight up so easily. Styles picks KENTA back up and puts him in between his legs before signalling for the Styles Clash only for KENTA to drop his shoulder and trip Styles to the mat before locking in a Cloverleaf! Styles screams in pain as KENTA locks in the hold, the fans stunned with some applauding a brilliant reversal from the Japan star. KENTA drags Styles away towards the center of the ring but the champion claws and scratches his way over the ropes with a dazed KENTA not strong enough to keep him away from the ropes. Finally Styles clings onto the bottom rope, breathing a sigh of relief as KENTA collapses to the mat exhausted from his efforts. The match reaches the ten minute mark with both men struggling to get up before the count of ten.

    One....Two....Three....Four....Five...Six...Styles starts to stir, using the ropes to help him to his feet....

    Seven...Eight..KENTA is now on his knees...Nine...both men are now back on their feet...

    KENTA and Styles are both back up but are soon back down as the two have the same idea, turning around and attempting to clothesline one another! The men collide and clatter to the ground with the fans starting to rally in their support for the champion AJ Styles.

    One...Two...Three...Four...Five...Six...KENTA starts to stir....

    Seven...AJ Styles now gets up gradually....Eight...KENTA uses the ropes to prop him up....Nine...they beat the ten count, barely....

    KENTA goes for another clothesline but this time Styles ducks before running towards the ropes, jumping and springboarding back into the path of KENTA to take him down with a magnificent move what he calls the Stylin' DDT. The crowd get on their feet and cheer before anticipating the pinfall as Styles leans across and hooks the leg of KENTA: One...Two...Thre-No! KENTA gets his arm up! Wow, that was close. Styles looks at the referee stunned that the move wasn't enough to keep KENTA down but doesn't bother complaining, instead he picks KENTA back up and nails him with a few lefts and rights before going for a second discus clothesline however his opponent sees it coming and ducks, hoisting Styles up before nailing him down with the Falcon Arrow! Styles thuds off the canvas and KENTA seizes his chance, quickly hooking his leg: One...Two...Thre-No! This time Styles kicks out at the last split-second leaving KENTA wide-eyed in disbelief. He rolls out of the ring to try and regain some composure but just snaps, he kicks the guardrail before re-entering the ring and pouncing on Styles with lefts and rights. He stops before being disqualified and simply sits on the canvas looking at Styles wondering what it will take to keep him down and prize away his championship belt.

    KENTA drags Styles up to his feet but is hit with a huge right hand, followed by a left and then finally a kick to the gut as Styles once again goes for the Styles Clash but KENTA has it scouted and once again drops Styles to the canvas but rather than go for another cloverleaf he slingshots Styles into the turnbuckles before waiting for him to spin back round, hoisting him up for the Go 2 Sleep! KENTA throws Styles in the air but Styles counters brilliantly, blocking by catching KENTA's raised leg before spinning him around and kicking him in the gut...Styles Clash! Styles connects with the Styles clash on the third attempt: One...Two...Thre-No! No! KENTA gets the arm up to defy Styles and leave the fans gasping in shock. Styles looks bewildered but he doesn't give up so easy. He picks KENTA up and hooks him in once again but he is foiled as KENTA counters, picking him up before rotating him on his shoulders and drilling him with a devastating Go 2 Sleep! Styles' face bounces off the knee of KENTA but the impact of the move sends Styles crashing to the mat and straight out of the ring. KENTA watches as Styles lands out of the ring, his face crestfallen as he realises an almost-certain three count has been dashed by unfortunate luck.

    Finish: KENTA and Styles are now together on the top turnbuckle with both men groggy and fatigued courtesy of their sterling effort which has started to affect their performance. The pair are both emotionally and physically drained as they fight on the top with KENTA getting the upperhand after a huge backhand slap to Styles which nearly sends him flying over the turnbuckle and to the outside but KENTA catches and hoists him up once again, this time looking for a Avalanche Falcon Arrow. He looks poised to connect but Styles begins to club him with elbow after elbow until finally KENTA drops him and looks as if he is about to fall back into the ring. Styles catches him though before grabbing him by the waste, looking for an Avalanche Styles Clash. Styles wraps KENTA's legs around his head and locks him in before launching himself from the top with KENTA in his grasp...he connects! Styles hits his finishing move from the rope and both men crash into the mat nastily, the crowd unable to contain themselves, exploding with noise after an astonishing maneuver. Styles looks out of it as he rolls back over to KENTA who hasn't showed any signs of movement, he rolls him over onto his back before hooking the leg. This time, surely: One...Two.....Three! Yes! Styles has did it, he retains against the seemingly unstoppable KENTA.

    Winner: AJ Styles (via Avalanche Styles Clash)

    Aftermath: The three count is made but both men just lie on the canvas, too exhausted from a gripping bout. Finally Styles returns to his feet as the referee awards him his championship belt, he raises it in front of the Vegas crowd who scream and cheer in appreciation of his efforts. He looks down at KENTA and contemplates just leaving the ring and celebrating but he helps KENTA to his feet and the men stare down at one another until KENTA nods in respect to KENTA and offers his hand. Styles looks at the audience and contemplates it before shaking his hand, the two men having won respect for one another after a thrilling wrestling contest. They embrace before KENTA raises Styles' arm in the air, the Smith Center and NWA: Resurrection fans being the true winners after a great match. The PPV goes off the air with the sight of the two warrior's standing tall and proud after an emotional match.

    NWA: Resurrection presents Tuesday Night Showcase
    Tuesday August 14th, 2012 | Episode XI
    George R. Brown Convention Center, Texas


    Oooh, can you feel it comin?
    Oooh, can you feel it comin?
    Move back his wrecking ball, reach through the package
    More violence he's coming, he's coming, he's coming
    Move back his wrecking ball, reach through the package
    More violent he's coming, I'm running, I'm running...
    -Kasabian "Switchblade Smiles"

    The fallout of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas begins with the 11th edition of Tuesday Night Showcase! NWA: Resurrection returns to Texas following a brief stop at Las Vegas for an eventful night that saw the departure of two stars as well as two successful title reigns - albeit in differing circumstances. We are treated to a brief recap of the event, documented in still images before Kasabian's theme drives us into the arena and the 1,200 plus Texan fans come into view. The voices of NWA, Paul Heyman and Jim 'JR' Ross welcome us to the show, "hot on the heels of the most exciting iPPV to date". Ross recalls the exit of Austin Aries and Jerry Lynn as well as Londrick and AJ Styles both retaining their titles. Paul Heyman says that the biggest talking point however, was the appearance of four masked men in the opening match, disrupting the match between Richie Steamboat and Drew Galloway and taking out both men. The duo are interrupted as the theme music of the 'American Dream' Dusty Rhodes plays across the arena and is met with rapturous applause as Dusty takes his place in the ring.

    Dusty appears aggrieved and stressed. The 'Dream' looks as if he hasn't slept for days as he begins to speak, his voice noticeably tired and broken. Dusty tells us that he has been appointed to look after the well-being of NWA: Resurrection for the forseeable future, addressing the events that took place at Fear and Loathing. Dusty says he has been trusted to ensure that these four masked men do not step inside an NWA ring again, and that measures will be taken to help make sure of that. Rhodes is interrupted as Drew Galloway comes to the ring, and bemoans the conclusion of his match against Richie Steamboat. Galloway is furious, and claims that Steamboat is behind the attack, ignoring the fact Steamboat also got attacked. Drew claims that he was on the verge of victory before being cut off by Richie Steamboat who joins Rhodes and Galloway in the ring.

    Steamboat says that he is every bit as unhappy as Drew Galloway is, because he wasn't able to show the world that he could beat Drew Galloway. The two men start to trash talk and end up face to face. Rhodes gets in between the two men and tells them that they will get the chance to fight again, this time at True Grit where the ring will be surrounded by security officials to ensure that the fight will go to a finish! Steamboat and Galloway both smile, satisfied with Rhodes decision before the lights go out and the arena falls into darkness!

    The crowd scream and cheer as a video begins to play on the titantron. A doctored voice plays over a grainy video telling us that: "at Fear and Loathing, the warning shot was fired...", before laughing hysterically. The words 'TAKEOVER WILL NOW COMMENCE" flash upon the screen, before fading out a few seconds later with the video now coming to a conclusion. The lights come back on with Galloway, Steamboat and Rhodes looking worried in the ring.

    ***

    The fans were treat to a rematch from Fear and Loathing, in the first match of the night with Jimmy Jacobs and Christopher Daniels seeking retribution against fan-favourites Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne. Bourne and Kingston flew out of the blocks with the opener proving to be a fast-paced affair. Kingston and Bourne gave their opponents all sorts of problems as they seemed to have a spring in their step, following their big iPPV win. Daniels and Jacobs didn't seem to be on the same wavelength throughout the match and this ended up being their downfall as Kofi Kingston caught Daniels unaware with the Trouble in Paradise. Jacobs' efforts to break the pinfall was in vain as Bourne launched himself at Jacobs with a beautiful leg lariat allowing Kingston to hook the leg for the W.

    Post-match Daniels and Jacobs argue with one another, with Jacobs frustrated that Daniels has allowed the team to fall to yet another defeat. Jacobs warns Daniels that he has one last chance, pushing him in the chest before exiting the ring without him. At ringside, Kingston and Bourne celebrate with fans, high-fiving younger fans as they work their way up the entrance ramp. Daniels cuts a lonesome, dejected figure in the ring, contemplating yet another defeating while Jacobs' words whirl around his mind.

    A video plays documenting the first two 'NWA vs. Japan Series' that took place at Flair for the Gold Night II and A Fistful of Dollars, recapping some of the action from both events. We are told that a third and deciding series will take place at the Hammerstein Ballroom, at True Grit, only on iPPV! A still image shows the logos of NWA: Resurrection, Dragon Gate, Pro-Wrestling NOAH and New Japan Pro Wrestling before fixing on a date - the 14th of September - the date of True Grit.

    ***

    El Generico makes his NWA: Resurrection debut in the second match of the evening against local talent, Joey Stevens. Generico is popular with the fans, with the majority fully aware of who he is. Generico is impressive in his first Tuesday Night Showcase outing, beating his opponent within a couple of minutes, finishing him off with a devastating Brainbuster. Generico celebrates at ringside with the fans chanting along to his theme song, 'Ole!'. Jim Ross announces that El Generico will be one of the NWA representatives at True Grit in the NWA vs. Japan Series III as Generico continues to high-five fans at ringside.

    ***

    Following commercials, Roderick Strong enters the ring and pleads his case to be involved in the third NWA vs. Japan Series and tells us all that he will make no mistake of defeating Low Ki on the third time of asking, claiming Ki got fortunate at Fear and Loathing. Strong demands that a match between him and Ki is made official for True Grit, and says he won't leave the ring until Dusty Rhodes or another NWA bigwig comes and gives him what he wants. Entrance music plays but it doesn't belong to Dusty Rhodes, it is the music of John Morrison, who makes his way to the ring to huge cheers!

    Morrison tells Strong to shut up complaining and be more positive. Morrison says that Strong's vibe is too negative and that he needs to get over his two losses. Morrison turns philosophical as he utters the words "yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is the gift of God". Strong meanwhile looks at Morrison is disbelief as JoMo begins to remind the fans of his big win over Austin Aries, which saw Aries leave the company as a result. He promises that the win was the start of a brighter future for NWA, smiling as the crowd chant his name, before readdressing Strong. Morrison tells Strong once again to be positive, but Strong snaps, drilling Morrison in the head with the microphone which leads to a chorus of boos from the crowd. Strong doesn't care about the reaction, as he cockily asks Morrison "is that positive enough for you?" before exiting the ring, leaving Morrison laid out in the ring behind him, as pathetic as a toy on the floor.

    ***

    Tag Team Champions, Paul London and Brian Kendrick wasted little time in defeating local wrestlers Bob Bradley and Bill Bradley in a non-title tag match. London and Kendrick received more of a hostile welcome than usual following their tactics to retain their championship belts against The Briscoes days earlier. The two are as smug and cocky as ever, and made short work of their opponents, finishing off Bob Bradley with Get Well Soon, the same double-team move that they dished out to both Briscoe Brothers at Fear and Loathing.

    The shit-eating grins are soon wiped off both mens faces as Jay and Mark Briscoe come rushing out of the crowd and hit the ring where they send both London and Kendrick crashing over the ropes with stiff clothesline, clearing the ring instantly. London and Kendrick take their title belts and back away from the ring, and start to work their way up the entrance ramp and out of the arena until Mark Briscoe diverts their attention with an annoucement that raises cheers from every single man, woman and child in the George R. Brown Convention Center, "London, Kendrick. You can run but you can't hide boys! At True Grit, it's gonna be London and Kendrick versus The Briscoe Brothers, the titles on the line...in a steel cage match!" The faces of London and Kendrick whiten, the pair looking gaunt and worried as Jay and Mark embrace in the ring. Heyman and Ross speak animatedly as London and Kendrick have to face the prospect of defending their titles in a match where they can't take the easy way out.

    ***

    As the show nears it's conclusion, Alex Shelley makes his way to the ring to brag about ending the career of Jerry Lynn last Friday night. Shelley basks in the ambience of negativity, his smile growing with every 'Shelley sucks!' chant that is chanted in his direction. Shelley asks how it feels to be wrong, saying all the fans were wrong, repeating the word 'wrong' again and again, with increased emphasis upon each repetition. He eludes to Austin Aries, calling him a bigmouth who was also wrong, and says that he proved everybody wrong once, and will do it all over again at True Grit. He claims that all he has left to do is become NWA World Heavyweight Champion, and says that he knows just how to get into the head of AJ Styles.

    Shelley says Styles is a poor and fragile champion, and that he isn't even in the building tonight. Shelley says that Styles isn't dedicated to the business and that champions shouldn't take nights off. Shelley says that he won't take any nights off once he wins the belt at True Grit - that's if AJ Styles is man enough to accept his challenge. Shelley continues to mock him, saying he'll have to wait till next week since Styles isn't fit enough to be in the building. He freezes and stops his insults as AJ Styles' music blasts across the PA system, signalling the arrival of the champion! AJ Styles hits the ring, running towards Shelley who tries to fight him but Styles is full of energy and he soon sends him flying out of the ring and retreating up the ramp. Shelley looks infuriated, angered that Styles has interrupted his big moment. Tuesday Night Showcase comes to an end with Styles holding the belt high in the air with his latest challenger Alex Shelley backing away, not wanting any of Styles just yet.

    END TUESDAY NIGHT SHOWCASE
    Sit down. Be humble.

    -Kasabian "Switchblade Smiles"

    Kasabian rock us into the George R. Brown Convention center as they do each week, but unlike usual, we don't hear the voices of the commentary team. Instead another voice bellows from the ring, one we recognise instantly due to the arrogance and cockiness, coming from the mouth of the speaker, the brash Alex Shelley. Jim 'JR' Ross and Paul Heyman sit in silence as Shelley antagonises the Texas crowd, before reveling in the boos directed at him. He tells us that this is the way Tuesday Night Showcase should kick off every week, claiming that he is the 'voice of wrestling' and that he will soon have a new moniker - 'NWA World Heavyweight Champion'.

    Shelley reminds us of last week, saying he was rudely interrupted by AJ Styles. Shelley says that Styles tried to steal his spotlight, so tonight he's putting things right, and the spotlight is going to shine on the 'New Star' by the night's end. He introduces us to another edition of the 'must-watch' Shelley's Showcase, revealing that his guest is none other than AJ Styles. Shelley says he has it on good authority that Styles has agreed to appear and listen to what Shelley has to say. Shelley says that he's an honourable man, and he will allow Styles to have his say also. He asks Styles to make his way to the ring, and moments later the NWA World Heavyweight Champion appears on the stage, looking slightly disgruntled.

    AJ Styles takes his place in the ring, demanding that Shelley "makes it quick". Shelley jokingly tells Styles to "spare me the euphemisms" before getting serious and telling Styles that he wants a shot at the title currently located around Styles' 'girly' waist. Shelley expands, telling Styles that they've traveled a long way together, mentioning Ring of Honor and Total Nonstop Action before arriving, right here in NWA: Resurrection. Shelley says that Styles has been given shot after shot in all three promotions, but until now he (Shelley) has always been shackled. Shelley tells Styles that he knows he's a better wrestler than him, but he's never been given a chance. Shelley demands that Styles gives him that opportunity.

    Styles tells Shelley that the reason he's never been given a chance is because he's a disrespectful, arrogant, piece of crap who talks the talk but is yet to 'walk the walk'. Styles says that he'll defend the championship against anyone who stands in his way, and that he has no problem in taking Shelley down a peg or two. Shelley retorts, saying that Styles is reminding him an awful lot of Jerry Lynn, asking him if he remembers what he (Shelley) did to Lynn at Fear and Loathing. The two men get in each other's faces until finally Dusty Rhodes makes his way onto the entrance ramp to interrupt proceedings. Rhodes says that title shots aren't thrown around, and says that Shelley will have to face off against someone else who proved their worth at Fear and Loathing, and a man who bettered Shelley a month prior at A Fistful of Matches. Tonight, Alex Shelley will face John Morrison with the winner going onto face AJ Styles for the championship, at True Grit!

    ***

    El Generico and Christopher Daniels go one on one in the second match of the night. Jimmy Jacobs is auspicious in his absence with Daniels explaining pre-match that he was adamant that he could get the 'job' done, alone. Daniels controls the early goings, roughing up NWA newcomer, El Generico as he tried to end the losing streak that had been plaguing him in recent times. Daniels' frustation began to grow as he couldn't keep Generico down, the fan favourite fighting him off at every opportunity and kicking out of move after move.

    Daniels' frustration cost him dearly as Generico rallied back into the match, before finally punishing his opponent with a roll-up out of nowhere to get the victory. Generico rolled out of the ring immediately, celebrating making it two wins out of two with the fans at ringside as Daniels lamented yet another defeat in the ring. Daniels did not show any frustration or anger at the defeat, instead just appearing bitterly disappointed as Jimmy Jacobs made his way to the ring. Jacobs told Daniels that they will be taking part in the NWA vs. Japan Series III at True Grit, but he needs assurances that the man he will be teaming with hasn't lost what he once had. Daniels looks Jacobs in the face and tells him that he 'still has it', before Jacobs nods and exits the ring, once again leaving behind his dejected partner. Daniels finally exited the ring, hands on his hips in disbelief that he lost once again.

    In the second match of the night Kofi Kingston goes one on one with Richie Steamboat. The crowd are split 50/50 for either men, with the two shaking hands before an explosive wrestling contest. Kingston started better, troubling Steamboat with a backbreaker, swinging neckbreaker combination. Kofi was noticeably more aggressive as he tried to deal with Steamboat, who caused him all sorts of problems with his tricky offence. Steamboat wriggled free of Kingston and finally mounted an offence following a flying shoulder block. Kingston returned to his feet to walk into an atomic drop from Steamboat, who backed him into the corner with a flurry of forearm and knife-edge chops. Kingston rested against the corner as Steamboat propelled himself in his direction, only for Kofi to duck at the last second!

    Steamboat crashed and burned, head-first off the turnbuckles before Kingston dragged him down with a brutal lungblower. The two men lay exhausted on the mat, both trying to catch their breaths as boos started to ring around the arena. Drew Galloway was the culprit, as he slithered down to the ring, smiling before entering and stamping away at Richie Steamboat. The boos increased in volume as Galloway continued to stamp and stamp at a defenceless Steamboat. Kofi attempted to come to his aid but Galloway was too quick, and brought him crashing down with a big boot. The Scot attempted to continue his attack but was foiled as the lights went off and for the second week running, the arena was shrouded in darkness.

    A huge voice screamed across the personal announcement system: "cast us aside, deny what is rightfully ours, regret the fight that you all started, and attempt to resist a takeover which can't be stopped". Once again the words 'TAKEOVER' flashed upon the titantron, this time repeatedly until the mystery voice ominously laughed, and the lights came back on. Galloway's attention had diverted to the titantron, which he was screaming at in anger and confusion. A dismayed Galloway made the mistake of turning his backs on Kingston and Steamboat who were now back on their feet. Finally he turned around only to be met by a huge leg lariat from Kingston, as Steamboat sat perched upon the top turnbuckle, leaping off moments later and taking Galloway down with a flying crossbody! Steamboat and Kingston celebrated together in the ring, Ross and Heyman choosing to ignore the video that had just aired.

    We cut to Dusty Rhodes' office where Rhodes is busy in conversation with an unknown man, Rhodes infuriated about the video that just aired. The man tells Rhodes that there's nothing he and the team can do to stop these videos being aired. Rhodes slams his fist off the desk and tells the man to leave before Todd Grisham enters the scene. Dusty senses that Todd will have some tough questions so he tells Todd that he has came just at the right time. Todd looks perplexed as Dusty says that he has a huge announcement to make, revealing that the two editions of Tuesday Night Showcase will be 'Pick Your Poison' specials where anyone in action at True Grit will face their an opponent of their True Grit opponent's choosing. Rhodes excuses himself and leaves behind Grisham who looks bemused that he wasn't able to get any answers from the stand-in GM.

    The Briscoe Brothers took on a luchadore tag team in the third match of the night. The masked men, billing themselves as 'Loco Santos' and 'Loco Grande' are two El Paso wrestling products, who looked way out of their depth in the ring with Jay and Mark, who punished the duo with a ruthless attack. Santos was on the receiving end of a brutal Doomsday Device, with Jay blasting him off Mark's shoulders and downwards to the cold, hard canvas before hooking the leg for a simple victory.

    The two celebrated in the ring but their celebrations were cut short as two luchadores ran from the crowd, in exactly the same attire as their beaten opponents, armed with steel chairs. The Briscoes turned into brutal chairshots from the two masked men, who soon revealed themselves to be none other than Paul London and Brian Kendrick. The NWA World Tag Team Champions ripped their masks off and threw them down at the fallen bodies of Jay and Mark Briscoe, high fiving one another as they once again out-smarted their future opponents. The crowd voiced their displeasure at the pairs antics as Tuesday Night Showcase went to commercials.

    The office of Dusty Rhodes is the scene once again as a furious Drew Galloway kicks down Rhodes' door and demands he does something about the person behind these 'takeover' videos. Rhodes looks solemn as he tells Galloway someone is hacking into the video feed for the show, and so far nothing is working to stop whoever is behind the video. He concedes that they may have to wait it out until the masked men finally appear. Galloway tells Rhodes that he's going to have to pay damages to the families of whoever is behind this 'takeover' attempt because Galloway will personally destroy everyone and anyone behind it.

    The main event had a real big-match feel to it as Alex Shelley and John Morrison fought for the right to face the champion, AJ Styles at True Grit. Morrison and Shelley wasted little time in locking up, with Morrison getting the better of his opponent in the early goings, frustrating Shelley who prides himself on his mat-based work. Morrison went close to getting the win and a title shot, flying off the middle rope before connecting with the Chuck Kick, square to Shelley's temple. The 'New Star of NWA' showed great ring awareness however, dragging his left foot onto the bottom rope inches before the referee's hand connected with the mat for a count of 3.

    The close encounter with defeat served as a jolt of energy to Shelley, who slowly but surely worked his way back into the match, hitting a huge European uppercut to stifle Morrison before hitting him with a bulldog and Lionsault, Morrison only barely getting his arm up before it was too late. Shelley looked flustered but he continued, hooking Morrison by the neck before attempting Slicedbread #2, only for Morrison to counter brilliantly by catching Shelley and tossing him over the ropes and to the outside where Shelley landed with a loud bang. He rolled in pain, clutching his arm as Morrison tried to catch his breath in the ring. His attention was diverted as Roderick Strong appeared on the ring apron, shouting obscenities at the man who had attacked him on last week's show. Morrison stumbled to his feet before connecting with a dropkick to Strong who went flying off the apron and to the outside. Morrison turned around into the clutches of Shelley who had reentered the ring, before connecting with the Shellshock, twisting and drilling Morrison into the canvas before hooking the leg for the W and a title shot at True Grit!

    Strong backed up the ramp, clutching his jaw but smiling as Alex Shelley celebrated in the ring, overcome with relief. He was soon snapped out of it as AJ Styles appeared on the entrance ramp, holding his title high as Shelley stared on from the ring. Shelley motioned that he would be soon wearing the belt as Tuesday Night Showcase went off the air....

    END TUESDAY NIGHT SHOWCASE

    Default Re: NWA Resurrection (July's #1 Fed!)

    Fear and Loathing is the perfect show man. I'll give it an 11 out of 10. That's right, this one gets the Spinal Tap treatment. Every single match was treated as a main event. It's easy to see that you put a lot into that show, and it paid off. One of the best shows in fan fic all year from top to bottom. As for Ki vs Strong II, man what a war. I don't feel like you topped the original though. You captured lightning in a bottle with that match, and this one was a great sequel, but like most other sequels, even though it was bigger & better, it kind of fails to capture whatever it was about the original that made it so special. Still one hell of a war, and I would love to read a third match.

    I'm not a big fan of no contest/DQ finishes, but you know me. Thats just a personal preference.

    Fucking loved Lynn vs Shelley. Amazing match with a great finish. I've learned quite a bit about "Booking" from reading your shows. You definitely know what you are doing. Aries vs Morrison was my favorite match of the show. The thing about this show that I loved the most is how you put so much into the undercard, but the main event still came off as the main attraction. You did one hell of a job of giving this main event a "Big Time" feel. Your AJ Styles is amazing.

    Wish I had more time to thoroughly review this show man, but I don't. Trying to put together a P10 list at the moment, and figured I'd give a few comments while going back through. Outstanding show. I'll read the other two shows later tonight when I finalize my list.
