Wednesday night is when OVW tapes their Saturday night television show. Tonight, Muhammad Hassan, aka Mark Magnus, came out to do a promo with Dean in the ring. He had Khosrow Daivari and another guy with him.

It was a pretty straight forward promo -- Elijah Burke came out and got in Muhammad's face, Muhammad and his guys beat up on Elijah, several wrestlers came out to defend Elijah and chase Muhammad off.

Then, as Muhammad and his security made their way from the ring to the back, some guy in the audience started screaming at Muhammad and the other two. When he was ignored (which is understandable, since they were all looking at the ring and acting offended), the guy leapt over the barrier and suckerpunched Daivari. At first I almost thought it was intentional. Until I saw Dean, Cornette, security, the cameramen, and anyone else not in the ring suddenly leap on top of the audience member and drag him out of the building. When you see the cameramen drop their cameras and start running, you know something isn't "just for show."

After they dragged the guy out, Cornette disappeared backstage for a while, then returned to tell the audience to "NOT get physically involved with the show." Everyone looked rattled, and Cornette looked to have gotten punched in the nose, as he kept having to hold a kleenex to his nose throughout the rest of the night.

Should be interesting to see if they incorporate this into the show Saturday . . .

Snookum, what did you think of Nova/Simon Dean's speech to the Jersey Shore Crew the other week?

Cornette and the talent have had to come up with some creative ways to explain their appearances on WWE shows, but this ranks right up there with the Basham Brothers explanation of a few years ago, dont'cha think?

I thought this worked a little better than the Bashams at least, although it was essentially the same set up for the "leader" of a group to move up to WWE. With Doug Basham, it was him turning his back on the Revolution and getting the crap beaten out of him. Here it was Nova telling them how stupid the Jersey Shore Crew was and THEN getting the crap beaten out of him.

You work with what you're given, I guess.

I was at that show, btw, when Nova gave his speech and it was surprisingly effective on the audience. More than I thought it would have been. Nova managed to turn himself face with that speech, so I have to give him credit there.

BTW, did you see the Smackdown houseshow last Sunday? On OVW they have Matt Morgan in a mask as The Blueprint, but for Sunday's show he was wearing something that looked awfully similar to Hogan's mask. Anyone that wasn't an OVW regular there was no doubt wondering, "Who's that guy?" Funny.

Oh, and a chance to see Rico perform. Rico had a tag team match with Haas against Dupree and Kenzo and the Dudleys, only for it to turn into a singles match between Rico and Dupree. 35 minutes of solid wrestling from Rico.

And I believe Rico's last match in WWE. Fitting it happened in Louisville.

No, I didn't make it to the show. Wrasslin' will always lose out to the Seahawks.

It's too bad most people never got to see the "real" Rico. He wasn't the best out of the guys that got called up around the same time (Leviathan/Batista, Prototype/John Cena), but he was a damn good wrestler and deserved a better shot in my opinion.

At least I'll have the tapes. I hope he has some good memories and some savings.

Other than Morgan, I think Chris Masters will get the next callup. What does anyone else think?

Edit: Holy crap!! I'm watching last week's show this morning, and had no idea Chris Candido had been signed!?!?!? Can Sytch be too far behind????

I don't get to see the live shows anymore (busy Wed nights) and the Saturday Night show is just bad for me,timewise, as well, but I have caught a fewminutes each week.

Morgan's looking so much better, especially on the stick. What I don't understand is why the 'E, if they're going to try to keep small guys like Ray Mysterio and others on the roster don't bring up Johnny Jeter. The guy can fly, he's the same size and seems to have some charisma. He's pretty fair on the mike, but of course, he's small. But no smaller than Ray-Ray. Put him in a mask and he's a luchadore (a very pale luchadore)



Now, is it ok for me yell THEATRE! in a crowded fire?

My understanding about Candido from Lance Storm's latest reporting on his website was that Candido's appearance was a one-shot deal.

He got a fairly odd reaction from the audience when he came out. Half the people knew who he was, the other half didn't; but either way you could feel this huge aura of disappointment when Nova revealed his partner to be Candido. That had more to do with people expecting someone from WWE to show up than anything against Candido, however.

That was followed up by an odd moment where one of the regulars threw Nova a bottle of water, Nova took a few sips and then threw it at Danny Inferno - in an obviously worked manner (i.e. Nova's body language saying, "the bottle's going to come towards you here in a second, but I'll miss you by miles, so don't worry."). That was fine in good and it missed everyone by miles. Unfortunately, Inferno then picked up this 20 oz. bottle of water and threw it so hard back at Nova that it flew past his head and into the audience, SLAMMING into the wall just inches from a spectator's head.

I really don't think it was intentional, but it unnerved the audience members there for a few minutes.

I'm surprised that Jeter is still down here as well. Or Johnny Nitro, for that matter. I did talk with someone recently who knows Matt Cappotelli a bit and the rumored story about Matt being brought up this summer to be in a program against Chavo that got canned because of Chavo's injury was true. Too bad there for Matt. Speaking of which, they had been pairing Matt C. with Jeter in some tag-team events recently, so maybe they're thinking of doing something in that fashion.

Anyone heading to the Crusade Rumble show this Friday night?

Doubt I'll be at the Rumble, but I agree about Johnny Nitro and Jeter for that matter. Nitro has really learned how to work the crowd, and his moonsault over the ropes from the second rope is really neat.

I just think Masters has the "look" that the WWE is looking for and would be the next big profile callup.

They did use the fan attack on the show last night for anyone who was curious.

The footage of Chad & Tank Toland parading around the Mall St. Matthews, the Louisville Athletic Club and McDonald's with the stolen OVW belt was a HOOT. Chad playing Tank's entrance music over the boombox as Tank entered McDonald's and said "McDonald's, meet your McChampion" was particularly inspired.

I watched the footage of that thing with Hassan and I still believe it was a real situation. If this guy in the cowboy hat turns out to be another wrestler, I'll applaud them for doing a great job in making it look real.

We'll see, I guess. If it's never mentioned again, then we'll know for sure.

Loved the stuff with Chad and Tank. They've been doing more filmed segments recently and I think it's a nice diversion once in a while. The stuff with Joey Matthews and Johnny Nitro trying to destroy the Camaro a couple of weeks ago was funny as well.

I didn't see the Austin/HHH forklift thing but how is that any different than The Rock being crushed in an ambulance by a semi and coming back 2 weeks later?
