I don't understand… why won't you return my calls? Why can't we be together?Confusion falls over the faces of the officials in the ring. Ashley the Personal Assistant dutifully retrieves the microphone from A-Rod and hands it to Torrie. Perplexed, Torrie takes the microphone.Torrie

: Ashley the Personal Assistant… baby doll… you drive me wild! I wanna be with you forever!Ashley the Personal Assistant rolls her eyes and facepalms. She pulls away from A-Rod and tries to leave the ring. Crestfallen, A-Rod grabs her by the arm.A-Rod:
Seriously… Ashley the Personal Assistant… you're the only woman I want to be with!Ashley the Personal Assistant:
LEAVE ME ALONE YOU CREEP!Ashley the Personal Assistant tries to pull away, but A-Rod refuses to let her go. Out of nowhere, a fan runs down the ringside aisle. The crowd cheers as JASON VARITEK slides into the ring and NAILS A-Rod with a stiff right hand! A-Rod hurtles over backward and falls to the mat.

Holidead and Klein were anxious to get after each other, and the match started with a huge brawl. Once the principals got their shots in, the pace of the match slowed down and the Sisterz took control. Trish Adora was sent out of the ring, where Thunder Rosa battered Trish with a foreign object. Trish took a serious beating before finally making the hot tag to Kelly. The Sisterz doubled up on Kelly, and Rosa and Kelly brawled their way into the crowd. Rosa sent Kelly hurtling face-first into the security rail, causing the fans to gasp. Holidead dumped Kelly with the Darkness Falls, knocking Kelly loopy. Holidead smacked Kelly on the head with the foreign object for good measure, then Rosa went up for a Hurricanrana from the top rope on Kelly to capture the three count.
WINNERS: THE TWISTED SISTERZ After the decision, SARAYA KNIGHT came to ringside and attacked Rosa. A brief fracas broke out, and the Sisterz were quickly joined by SAVANNAH EVANS. Referees pulled the brawl apart and sent all the ladies back to the dressing room. Velvet
: Wow! The Twisted Sisterz just knocked the crap out of Kelly & Trish! Those two are some bad-ass chicks!EpicDave
: And adding Saraya Knight and Savannah Evans to the mix is only going to make things even more nasty. Fans- up next- another feud comes to a head in a Texas Death Match!TEXAS DEATH MATCHIVAN PUTSKI vs. KILLER KOWALSKI
Fists flew between these hated rivals, and the fight raged all over the arena. The battle spilled out into the parking lot, where Putski slammed the head of Kowalski onto a car windshield! Kowalski came up bloodied and dazed, and Putski planted Kowalski with a Polish Piledriver on the pavement. Kowalski was unable to answer the ten count, and Putski was the winner!

Jazz tried to battle back, but Jazz missed a leg drop and Angelina stunned Jazz with a vicious spinning back kick. The Allure went in for the kill, as Mandy locked on a sleeper hold on Jazz.

WINNERS: MALIA HOSAKA & JAZZVelvet
MALIA & JAZZ RETAIN THE HEARTLAND LADIES' TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
: Unbelievable! I thought The Allure had that match won! EpicDave
: I think the fans here would agree- but Malia and Jazz are a couple of savvy veterans and they have been down this road before. All it takes is one opportunity for this team to capitalize and find the path to victory. That's what makes these ladies such an imposing championship duo!Patriot Heavyweight Championship'SUPERSTAR' BILLY GRAHAM (c) vs. BOB BACKLUND
Backlund pretty much had his way with the champion tonight, outmanuvering Graham at every turn. THE GRAND WIZARD
did everything in his power, interrupting a pin attempt early in the match and later jumping up to the ring apron, only for the Wizard to get himself sent away from ringside. Graham rallied briefly, trapping Backlund in the Superstar Bearhug, but Backlund was able to make his way to the ropes to force the break. Graham went for a choke hold, but Backlund smoothly reversed into an abdominal stretch! Graham fought his way free, but Backlund quickly turned the momentum into a back suplex and covered Graham for the three count!
WINNER: BOB BACKLUNDVelvet
BOB BACKLUND CAPTURES THE PATRIOT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
: What a great move by Bob Backlund! He's an ugly little troll, but Bob Backlund sure can wrestle. Give it up for the new Patriot Heavyweight Champion!Patriot Tag Team ChampionshipTHE FABULOUS KANGAROOS (c) vs. DEMOLITION
It was savvy vs. strength on display in the tag title match. The bout was evenly paced, which frequent tags on both sides keeping all four men fresh. Later in the match, Demolition isolated Costello and delivered a savage beatdown in the corner. Heffernan tried to save his partner, but Ax leveled Heffernan and pitched him out of the ring, opening the door for Demolition to take down Costello with the Demolition Decapitation!

: These longtime rivals went hold-for-hold, reflecting their knowledge of each opponent's strategies. Sherri didn't hesitate to bend the rules, but Melissa kept her cool. Sherri finally managed to get the action out to the arena floor, where Sherri choked Melissa with an electrical cable. Melissa staggered back to the ring, where Sherri went to the top rope and came off with a Top Rope Splash for the pin.Second Fall:
Melissa rallied in the second fall and dumped Sherri with a DDT. Sherri went out of the ring, where without warning, Sherri was attacked at ringside by a hooded assailant! The assailant brawled with Sherri, but Sherri put aside the attack and security rushed in to remove the attacker. Melissa kept her distance, but when Sherri returned to the ring, Melissa nailed Sherri with a flying clothesline, then dumped Sherri with the Kudoh Driver and covered Sherri for the three count!Velvet
: Who was THAT?EpicDave
: I don't know- but we are all even and it's one fall for the championship!Third Fall:
Emotions were running high after the outside attack, and things in the ring turned nasty. Sherri went to the eyes, and Melissa countered with a series of brutal body blows. Sherri absorbed a beating, then drove her knee deep into the lower abdomen of Melissa. Mellissa staggered back, and Sherri went to the top turnbuckle. Before Melissa could recover, Sherri came off the top turnbuckle with a Top Rope Splash and nailed Melissa. Sherri went for the cover, and with her legs up on the middle rope, Sherri help the shoulders of Melissa down for the three count.
WINNER: SHERRI MARTELVelvet
SHERRI MARTEL REGAINS THE HEARTLAND LADIES' CHAMPIONSHIP
: What a great match! Those two are always competitive and their battles are always intense. But that win was not without controversy- who was the person that attacked Sherri? And I could SWEAR that Sherri was using the ropes when she got that last pin. That was dirty. But still- congratulations to Sherri for winning the title for the FOURTH time!EpicDave
: Melissa looked pretty confused when that outside interference went down. Melissa is also pretty upset over the ending of that match. In the heat of competition, anything can happen. Definitely an impressive win for Sherri- but she has a long way to go to catch up to Melissa, who has held that title ELEVEN times! And that is our third title change here tonight! And now, fans- we have two matches remaining with BOTH the World Championships on the line!NWA World Tag Team ChampionshipTHE NEW AGE OUTLAWS (c) vs. KEVIN SULLIVAN & CACTUS JACKThe Outlaws came to the ring with the psychological edge in the person of THE FALLEN ANGEL at their side. Fallen Angel got into the face of Sullivan attempting to unnerve him. But Sullivan was not unsettled. Instead, Sullivan raised his hands into the air. The lights flickered, and when they returned, Sullivan was joined in the ring by CHRISTINA VON EERIE. Without a word, Christina lowers her head and drives forward into Fallen Angel with a Running Spear! Christina and Fallen Angel tumble out of the ring, and Christina pummels Fallen Angel with both fists!Velvet
: Christina is back! She hasn't been around for months- since she got fired by Alex Rodriguez!The Outlaws scurry out of the ring and try to pull the ladies apart, but Christina screeches and continues to pummel Fallen Angel until officials pour in from backstage to break apart the melee.
When the in-ring action finally began, it was Katie-Bar-The-Door! The Outlaws went to the offensive, and Billy Gunn whacked Cactus Jack with a chair! Cactus didn't take kindly to that, and words were exchanged. Billy slapped Cactus, and charged headlong at Cactus at the turnbuckle. But Cactus was one step ahead, sidestepping Billy and sending Billy slamming into the turnbuckle. Billy tumbled out to the arena floor! Road Dogg came to help, but Sullivan annihilated Road Dogg with a running lariat and Cactus launched himself backwards off the ring apron onto the fallen Billy Gunn. Billy took the full impact of the falling Cactus on his right leg, and was screaming in pain on the floor as the referee counted ten.
WINNERS (via countout): KEVIN SULLIVAN & CACTUS JACKVelvet
: Ohmigawd! Billy's leg looked like it snapped!EpicDave
: That was an ugly injury. Cactus Jack calls that move the "Nestea Plunge"- but Billy took the full weight of Cactus Jack on that reckless move and he is feeling anything BUT refreshed. He's in serious pain- and we're going to need the Heartland Trainers to take Billy out of here on a gurney.Velvet
: FALLEN ANGEL
is back at ringside now- she has some nasty gashes on her face! But she is more concerned about Billy as they are wheeling him out of the Gardens.EpicDave
: All the best to Billy Gunn- but fans- the show must go on, and it is now time for tonight's Main Event!Main Event: NWA World Heavyweight ChampionshipTED DIBIASE (c) vs. BRYAN DANIELSON
After winning the Buckeye Bowl, Danielson had all the momentum- and all the fan support on his side. But DiBiase was ready, and had the services of BIG SCOTT HALL
at ringside. Danielson got off to a quick start, going to the air and to the mat to wear down the champion. DiBiase was able to counter, and after roughing up Danielson on the arena floor, DiBiase locked on the Cobra Clutch. Danielson struggled, but was able to make the ropes and force the break. Danielson tried to catch a breather on the arena floor, but Hall gave Danielson a brutal gut punch and pitched him back into the ring.Velvet
: What a sleazebag!
Back in the ring, DiBiase took control and punished Danielson with a pair of flying back elbows from the middle rope. Danielson was shaken, but dug deep and managed to rally. Danielson took down DiBiase with a double leg dive, and peppered the champion with a flurry of brutal kicks. DiBiase slumped to the mat and Danielson clamped on the Crossface Chicken Wing! DiBiase was about to submit, but Hall pulled DiBiase out of the ring to free him from the submission. The referee did not take kindly to the interruption, and ordered Hall away from ringside!EpicDave
: Good job, ref!
DiBiase was ordered into the ring, where Danielson went to the air and drilled DiBiase with a missile dropkick! DiBiase was floored, and Danielson immediately followed up with a Tiger Suplex and covered DiBiase for the pin!
WINNER: BRYAN DANIELSONEpicDave
BRYAN DANIELSON WINS THE NWA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
: Ladies and gentlemen, history has been made here in Toronto! BRYAN DANIELSON
has defeated Ted DiBiase to win the NWA World Heavyweight Championship!
That match was stellar from start to finish- back and forth action from two fine grapplers. Once we got rid of the stench of Scott Hall at ringside, that was some outstanding competition. But at the end of the night, it was Danielson who picked up the win and his first-ever world championship! Congratulations to Bryan Danielson- and to all of tonight's winners!
