On Saturday June 30, 2007 WWEâ€™s Florida Championship Wrestling held their second event. It was held at the Temple Terrace Recreational Center, 6610 E. Whiteway Drive in Temple Terrace, FL.
(1) â€œThe Puerto Rican Nightmareâ€ Eric Perez defeated Dan Rodman.
Rodman tried to play mind games with Perez, slapping him in the chest on a clean corner break. On the next corner break Rodman went for a right hand punch but only it air as Perez moved and hit an armdrag takeover but Rodman went to the ropes. Rodman scrambled to the roped and on the break Perez got him in a headlock takeover. Again Rodman went to the ropes for the break. On the lockup Perez got another side headlock takeover but Rodmanâ€™s body was so long he got the ropes with his legs. Perez switched his attack to a hammerlock but Rodman escaped only to miss an elbow drop which led to another side headlock takeover. Rodman got out and shot Perez off but Rodman dropped expecting Perez to run over. Instead Perez dropped into a side headlock. Both men fought for control of an overhand wristlock but when Rodman complained of a hair pull, he moved the referee so he could pull Perezâ€™s hair and hit a clothesline. Rodman used his power advantage to work over Perezâ€™s back and also some chokes on the ropes. Perez reversed an Irish whip and went for a dropkick But Rodman grabbed the ropes to stop his momentum. Rodman kept working the back with a bearhug that nearly got a submission but Perez fought out with punches and kicks but Rodman hit him with a sideslam. Rodman went for a waistlock but Perez used momentum to take both men to the corner and get the rollover pinfall win.
(2) Keith Walker and Ryck Lon defeated Team Elite (Mike Knox & Derrick Neikirk).
Lon and Neikirk started out with Lon using his strength to toss Neikirk around and using the refereeâ€™s count to his advantage. Neikirk used quickness to avoid a corner splash and hit a belly to belly suplex that sent Lon to the floor to regroup. This meant
(3) In a ladies match refereed by Krissy Vaine, Nattie Neidhart defeated Shantelle Taylor.
In case you wondered, yes she is the daughter of Jim â€œthe Anvilâ€ Neidhart. Both ladies squared off with a series of moves that led Neidhart to try for the Sharpshooter but Taylor got to her feet. Neidhart used a hand full of hair to drive
(4) In a â€œTriple Threatâ€ match, 2006 Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup competitor â€œStampede Kidâ€ TJ Wilson defeated Afa Anoai of the Samoan Fight Club and G-Rilla.
I donâ€™t think Wilson and Anoai together weighed as much as G-Rilla and Anoai tried to form an alliance with Wilson. It lased all of five seconds as he allowed Smith to run right into G-Rilla who tossed
(5) Kofi Kingston defeated Johnny Curtis.
Kingston and Curtis traded takeovers but
(6) Southern Heavyweight champion Harry Smith vs. â€œBad Seedâ€ Shawn Osborne (w/Heath Wallace Miller Esq.)
Before the match Osborne demanded the fans cheer for him, of course this led to the fan reining boos on him and his manager. Miller also took some time to insult the fans and Smith. Smith did his talking in the ring with armdrags and hiptosses which kept Osborne on the defensive. Smith hit several moves but refused to release Osborneâ€™s left arm. Osborne avoided a corner move and went up top but Smith took him back to the mat with an armdrag into an armbar submission hold. Osborne got to the ropes and on a lock up, grabbed Smith in a headlock and punched him in the face. Osborne tossed Smith to the floor where Miller got involved before Osborne came out to slam Smithâ€™s back against the ring apron. Back in the ring Osborne kept attacking the back with a body stretch submission hold. Smith fought to his feet and tried to reverse the hold but instead kneed Osborne in the gut. Osborne blocked a kick and locked Smith in a sleeper hold, which nearly got him the title but Smith fought to his feet. Smith ducked a punch and hit Osborne with a back suplex but both men struggled to their feet. Smith blocked several punches as he hit Osborne with several. Smith hit a bodyslam and two dropkicks followed by a powerslam for two. Smith had Osborne up for the Running Powerslam but Osborne slid off and hit a neckbreaker for two. Smith got an inside cradle for two but Osborne got to his feet first hitting a clothesline. Osborne went for a running knee to the corner but Smith moved and hit the Davey Boy Smith Running Powerslam to retain the title. After the match the fans let Osborne know they thought he sucked.
(7) In the main event, Hacksaw Jim Duggan defeated Doink the Clown.
At the bell Duggan refused to put down his trusty 2×4 until Doink put down his rubber chicken. Finally we got to action as both men fought for control of a collar-elbow tie up. Doink got in a kneelift but Duggan got in three clotheslines that sent Doink to the floor. Doink came back in and Duggan offered a free punch but Duggan blocked it and hit several right hand punches of his own sending Doink to the floor once more. Doink came back in and saw a backdrop coming so he kicked Duggan in the chest and began a series of Greco-roman choke holds risking a DQ. Duggan fought out of a rear chinlock but ran right into another kneelift from Doink. Doink locked in the chinlock again, putting all his weight on Dugganâ€™s neck. Once again Duggan used the crowdâ€™s energy to get a boost of adrenaline to fight up to his feet. Duggan blocked a corner move and hit Doink with ten punches to the head. Duggan threw Doink to a neutral corner and hit his patented football clothesline to win.
