JJ stays true to his team, allowing one of them to earn an NWA Title shot but who?
Remember to send your thoughts on the show for the PPV Edition of the 3R's! Score the show from 1-10 and include your MATCH of the Night as well as your TRASH of the Night~!
-Cornette tells Hemme is her team isn't here in 5-minutes, her match is off. He then tells Leticia to find Angle because he has to talk to him.
-JB is outside the arena with lots of fans for the "Black and Blue" Carpet.
-We get a video package for the Electrified Cage match for the NWA Tag Team Titles.
-Hemme talks to Raven about helping her out. Raven says they make their own opportunity, but they will do it for a high price, not her normal low rates.
-Tenay and West welcome us to the arena, which looks pretty damn full. It also appears that they have changed the cage, from the normal chain link to more like cables as the caging. They run down the card.
-JB is with Team Angle, which have just arrived. Hummer limo for them, nice. It's just Angle and JJ. Angle says not to worry about anything. His team is unified, and he doesn't have to answer to anyone. JB lets him know Cornette is looking for him.
-The pre-show match is the Voodoo Kin Mafia vs. Christy Hemme's Mystery Team, which is Serotonin due to Missouri State Athletic stuff and the fact that the Bashams No-Compete Clause isn't over yet. Cage is definitely different as I said, think old block look (blue cage) but small blocks. Hoyt is with VKM again. Hemme looks like a complete whore tonight, I approve. Kip James thankfully cut his hair very short, eliminating all of the possible gay hairstyles he could wear. Kaz and Havok are wrestling for Serotonin as Martyr and Hemme watch from ringside. VKM wins at 3:36 as Kip kills Havok with the cobra clutch slam. Just a regular squash, it worked fine, crowd was into it so ok. *
-Leticia is with Sting, Joe and Rhino. Joe says they are disappointed in Angle. They say Angle had no balls to tell them that JJ was the 5th man. Sting says he is for giving people a 2nd chance, and JJ has already had enough of those. Rhino then says they have to face team Cage, and it could turn into a 6-4 affair.
-Hemme is in the ring with Serotonin, and Raven now comes to the ring. Serotonin hit their knees and prepare for punishment, and she yells at Raven. He grabs her and tells Serotonin to get up. They force her down and Raven is about to cane her, and Kaz gets in the way. Hemme escapes and they now hold Kaz down. Raven canes him three times and the crowd chants for another but don't get it.
-Tenay and West hype the show once again.
-Outside JB is with the super hot Gail Kim. She puts over the women's cage match, and she has respect for Jackie as a veteran, and as she gets that out Jackie arrives and jumps her for another good pull apart brawl. They hate each other, they fight and will now have a match, so simple and effective.
-We get a video package for the Lethal Lockdown Match.
-Angle is with Cornette. He is changing the result of the match from Thursday because of the JJ run in. Now Team Cage will have the War Games advantage, the way they should. They argue and Angle storms off.
-Don West is here to do the HARD SELL for the show! ORDER NOW~!
-We kick off with the video we saw last night on the Road to Lockdown Special.
-Tenay and West welcome us to the show. They run down the card, and it looks as if the X-Title match will kick off the show.
In the back, Leticia is with BLACK MACHISMO. He calls Leticia LIZ. He will be the next X-Division champion…DIG IT~!
-Either my TV is messed up or the color on the graphics is off and blurred.
