The Riggs Brothers defeated Chad Dick and Eddie Craven in one of last
night’s OVW (Ohio Valley Wrestling) matches at the Davis Arena in
Louisville. This was the first match back in the OVW for the Riggs
Brothers after being released from the WWE. The crowd liked them, even
though Chad is still doing his striptease show.
The taped show will include Charles Evans beating Pat Buck with a
bodyslam. In a more competitive fight, Elijah Burke beat Shawn Osbourne.
Afterwards Burke celebrated his patriotism. Cody Runnels beat KC James
by DQ. Marcus Murtado, of PW Insider, reported that Aaron Stevens
interfered on behalf of James, which prompted Roadkill to clean house
and make a challenge for a tag match at Six Flags. But just the same,
KC was great doing his old school Tommy Rich gimmick.
Simon Dean beat
TJ Dalton in a decisive victory. After the match, Al Snow
challenged Dean on the big screen to a tag team strap match. Al
said he would take him on at the upcoming Six Flags show. So far
Dean accepted the challenge but has not named his partner.
Seth Skyfire & CM Punk beat Deuce & Domino (with Cherry). Murtado
described the match as A bit sloppy but really good. Punk and Seth made
a good team. Danny Davis was interrupted by Mikey (Mondo) and Johnny
(Jeter) of the spirit squad as he was thanking the crowd for making the
OVW a success at Six Flaggs. Murtado described the beatdown as vicious
after Davis took some hard chair shots.
Davis and friend
Jim Cornette formed the OVW after Davis retired from in-ring action.
Cornett told Jim Varsallone of the Miami Harold “In 1993, I ran
into Danny Davis in Louisville when I was visiting home. I was in
Stanford [working for WWE] and wanting to move south. I suggested,
since WWE had no formal training program to start one to give
wrestlers local TV experience and a chance to wrestle in front of
crowds.” The rest is history.
