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.

Epiphany starts yelling at him and grabs a mic. She challenges Tapa to a match at Saturday Night Special. Tapa accepts. Eddie gets in between them and they shove him down and shove each other. Eddie gets back up as they both wind up to take a swing at each other and both hit Eddie.
In the back, Heidi is talking to Trina and crying about what happened earlier. Trina tells her that they should partner up at Saturday Night Special and wipe the smirks off the faces of Taeler & Nikki. Crimson grabs the camera and him & Jason Wayne say there will be blood as they walk out of the building.
OVW TELEVISION TITLE: “The King of Pink, The Ken of OVW, & The Justin Bieber of Professional Wrestling” Dylan Bostic vs. “The Double R Superstar” Randy Royal (c).
Royal tells referee Chris Sharpe to check Bostic. Sharpe finds brass knucks on him. Bostic says to check Royal too. Sharpe also finds brass knucks on Royal.

Royal takes off the padding on the top turnbuckle. As Sharpe puts it back on, Dylan low blows Royal and then starts taking off the padding in the other corner. As Sharpe goes to fix that turnbuckle, Royal grabs a chain and knocks Dylan out. As he goes to pin, Tony Gunn shows up on the monitors and tells Randy that put his career on hold to help him out training and getting him back in the ring. He says he was stabbed in the back and it’s now his mission to make Royal miserable as long as he has that TV title. Bostic has recovered during all of this and rolls Royal up for 3!

After the match, Dean Hill goes over Jessie’s accolades, but asks him about his losing streak, saying he just got beat by Nick Dumeyer. Jessie says he is not a loser. He’s on TV, and all the people watch TV. Dean asks him what he is going to do if he loses again. He says he will not, but asks Dean his opinion. Dean says if he lost that much, he might think about giving up his contract. Jessie says since all the fans want to be involved, he will let the fans decide. If he loses again, they get to pick the stipulation. They can get on social media, go to Dean Hill’s Facebook, OVW’s Facebook, and decide what the stipulation should be if he loses again, but he’s NOT a loser.
After all of this, the Assassin’s music hits and he takes out Nick Dumeyer.
Gilbert Corsey is in the ring and his guests are the NEW OVW Southern Tag Team Champions, Mohamad Ali Vaez & Michael Hayes. He says the question on everyone’s minds is if the tag titles will be defended at Saturday Night Special in a rematch against the Coalition. Ali starts talking about how the Coalition is a bunch of thugs when the monitors show the Coalition driving down the road. They stop in front of Michael Hayes’ house! They go inside and search the place and find what they were looking for…Hayes’ Purple Heart. They say he will get it back when their property is returned to them. Ali talks about his West Point experience and says this is no longer about the titles, this is war! Hayes takes the mic and says he is not going to yell and scream. He has had a hatred building up in his soul for over 7 years with no way to get it out. They just took something that was given to him for his service to this great country. It doesn’t matter if they keep the titles or not, they are coming for them at the Saturday Night Special!
This ended the TV taping.
