For those interested, The Idol and Nova had a tag-team match against Tank Toland and Chris Cage tonight (December 10) at the taping of the OVW show. Lucy came out with The Idol and Nova and played a strictly valet role in the match. At the end of the match, she tried to throw the tag-team belt to The Idol to use against the team, but accidentally throws it to Cage (I believe . . . I can't remember now which of the two got the belt).
The Idol got clobbered and pinned, leading The Idol and Nova to get on Lucy's case in the middle of the ring. Lucy slapped Nova and just as the two wrestlers were about to beat her up, Toland and Cage ran back out to chase them off. Lucy then handed the tag-team belts to Toland and Cage and raised their arms in victory.
The audience was full of fans holding signs for Lucy during and after the match, and with the taping finished, Cornette came into the ring and raised her arm in victory to the cheering crowd.
It was clearly suggested by Cornette on the mic that this was the last time Lucy would be seen in OVW. Everyone seemed very high on her tonight, and it was a nice way to go out, however.
Eep. Given a choice between simply awarding the I-C Title to Benoit and holding a tournament for it, I'd go with the tournament! Last thing we need is another guy being awarded a title by a general manager.
