OWF Event #82
August 8, 2016 | Cincinnati, Ohio
The show opened up with the OWF Commissioner Beatrice Keenan. Excitedly she announced the recipient of the briefcase that she had given Dani Rawlings weeks earlier. A briefcase that similar to the FFP ANY Case, could be cashed it at any time for a championship. Of course this briefcase was hand delivered to her new boyfriend Connor Campbell.
Zoey Kiehl vs Juno Frost
These two women have had a series of really good matches. This was just the same. Both women worked the other down. Juno worked on Zoey’s leg. After hitting a chop block Zoey was in a lot of pain. But she dug deep and continued on, countering Juno’s Tornado Codebreaker attempt by shoving her off causing her to land on her feet. Juno charged again but Zoey caught her with the Blue Thunder Bomb.
The referee made the three count, but Juno’s leg was on the bottom rope. The ref had missed it. He quickly informed Zoey that the match was still going due to Juno’s foot being on the rope. A confused Zoey then became the victim of roll up from Juno. Frost pulled Zoey’s tights hard. The referee didn’t see it and made the three count. Juno had stolen the match from Zoey Kiehl.
Trey Hawkins vs Mateo Chavez
A fast paced match between a young rookie and an experienced luchadore. The match was great, with both men impressing. Trey went for his finisher, You Don’t Learn That In School, but Mateo reversed it into a painful STF. Trey held on as long as be could, but eventually tapped out.
Amber Moxley vs Lady Stella
A very hard fought match for both ladies. Amber had a certain stiffness that Lady Stella lacked. It gained her the advantage. Then hitting a running STO she floored her opponent and got the pinfall victory.
After the match Amber went for a handshake but Lady Stella refused, shoving Amber out of the way and storming out of the ring.
OWF Tag Team Titles
(c) Guided by Voices vs The Tamatoas
A fast paced match when the Tamatoas had a say in it. Guided by Voices tried slowing the pace down. The Samoans did everything in their power to become the new OWF Tag Team Champions.
The referee went down after Tyler Reynolds accidentally connected with a clothesline. Joey Danielson then brought in a championship. He aimed for Kanoa, but leveled his partner. Then, Kanoa’s brother Kalino hit a Superkick on Joey sending him out of the ring. Kanoa went up top and hit Tyler with a flying headbutt. He hooked the leg and got that three count. The Tamatoas were the new OWF Tag Team Champions!
OWF Network Title
(c) Blaine Edwards w/ Izzy Laroo vs Dirk Vaughn
Blaine’s girlfriend Izzy Laroo came down to the ring with him. This match was violent. Dirk dated Izzy a while back but now she was with Blaine, and apparently Dirk didn’t like it. So the two had been feuding for quite some time.
Blaine gained the advantage early with rights and lefts, then hit a suplex. He continued beating Dirk down until Vaughn gained the advantage with a thumb to the eye. The match continued, back and forth.
Blaine set Dirk up for the Tiger Driver, but Dirk escaped out. He went for a big clothesline but Blaine ducked it and hit a knee to the skull. Dirk fell back. He screamed for the trainer. Of course the referee stopped the action to check on Dirk. If he was injured the match needed to end, for his safety.
As the trainer and referee checked on Dirk, Izzy Laroo climbed into the ring. She had had quite a feud with Dirk as well. Maybe she was coming in to add to the damage.
She came up beside Blaine and put her arm around him. He turned to her as she seductively dropped to her knees, looking up at him. He looked confused, until Izzy destroyed him with a low blow. Blaine couldn’t believe it. He fell to his knees. Confused. Shocked.
Izzy rolled out of the ring. And Dirk quickly got back to his feet, blasting Blaine with a shining wizard. Dirk made the pin. 1…2…3!
Izzy Laroo grabbed the OWF Network Title and slid into the ring. She presented it to Dirk. The “couple” stood over Blaine who was still out cold. Izzy stood by the new champion as he pulled her hair back and kissed her over the former champion.
The ring quickly filled with trash from the Cincinnati crowd.
OWF Women’s Tag Team Titles
(c) Maaike Garza & Raakel vs Dani Rawlings & Roxi Haacke
Another hard hitting match in a night of great OWF action. The OWF Women’s Tag Team Champions used their speed to their advantage. They definitely had the experience advantage. But it wasn’t enough. The OWF Women’s Champion Dani Rawlings and Roxi Haacke pulled out the stops, hitting a double powerbomb to Maaike for the three count.
If Someone Pins Hayden, That Person Wins OWF Title
Hayden Flowers & ATM vs Connor Campbell & Dexter Murdoch
Another violent match which saw all four competitors take some brutal shots. Dexter had the size and power advantage by far, but Hayden Flowers and ATM took the big man apart then set their eyes on Connor Campbell. Connor hit a couple of big moves but it was Hayden hitting a piledriver in the middle of the ring for the three count.
After the match Aubrey Moresi rushed to the ring and wrapped Hayden in a hug. The show ended with Hayden standing over top of Connor Campbell the winner, and still the OWF Champion.e
