Hannah slaps an armlock on Taeler, Taeler reverses, then Hannah rolls through and reverses again. Taeler shoves Hannah off into the ropes and Nikki hits Hannah. Taeler tries to pin for 1. Taeler claws and hits Hannah across the back. Taeler distracts the ref as Nikki chokes Hannah over the second rope. Taeler locks in an armbar, but Hannah breaks free. She catches Taeler with 2 back elbows, and hits a snap suplex. Hannah and the ref are distracted as Heidi & Nikki argue with each other.

That concludes tonight's pre-show dark matches. I always recommend watching the episode first on TV or online before reading the rest of the report. Again, you can check it out on OVW's official website late Thursday afternoon/evening at and on WBNA ion-21 in the Louisville area Saturdays at 12 noon with replays Wednesdays at 9PM after WWE Main Event.

Jamin Olivencia comes to the ring and calls out Rob Terry. Rob comes to the ring and says he made a mistake. Jamin asked which mistake. "The mistake of letting me lose to Jay Bradley? The mistake of letting Jay become the next #1 contender? Or the mistake of you hitting me with a chair?" Rob asked Jamin if he seriously thinks he'd need a chair to take him out. Jay Bradley comes out laughing. He says it doesn't matter who wins at Saturday Night Special, whether it's the "big vanilla gorilla" (Terry) or the "pint-size Puerto Rican" (Jamin), someone is getting boomsticked soon after SNS. Rob says we'll see what happens after he beats Jamin on Saturday. Jamin gets upset and hits Rob. Rob grabs Jamin and delivers a huge powerslam to leave him laying as Jay laughs and walks to the back.

In the back, Taeler Hendrix talks to Nikki St. John about having Heidi Lovelace wrapped around her finger and having her do all the dirty work so that she can become a 4-time OVW Women's Champion. They walk away and Heidi is seen from outside their locker room door where she has been listening in.

"The VIP Club" J. Best, Roberto De Luna, & Aaron Sky vs. Rudy Switchblade & "The Really Really New Rockers" Rockstar Spud & Ryan Howe.

Rudy & the Rockers very quickly eliminate their opponents one-by-one. They take out Best, take out Roberto, and finish Aaron off with Howe's Chart Topper, followed by a frog splash from Rudy.


After the match, Rudy & the Rockers say they will meet the Coalition's Joe Coleman & Delta Team Bravo at Saturday Night Special in a tornado 6-man tag, and it will be war!

HANDICAP MATCH: "Lambda Lambda Lambda" Albert Einstein Baxter II & Stephon J. Baxter III vs. "Strongest Gamer Alive" Marcus Anthony.

Marcus slams Stephon off his shoulders. Albert tags in and Marcus shoves him in the corner. Marcus charges and hits the turnbuckle after Albert drops to the mat in fear. Stephon tags in and they kick at Marcus' legs and dropkick them out from underneath him. He goes down to his knees as they run off the ropes again. Marcus leaps to his feet and catches them with a double clothesline. He bench press slams Albert and then delivers the Gamma Punch to Stephon for the 3.
