Hollywood Inc. Gauntlet
“Hollywood” Joe Hardway comes out cutting a promo on how Mo Sexton doesn’t have a chance of winning the gauntlet blah blah blah. How Mo will never get another shot at his heavyweight title blah blah blah.
Part 1 Mo Sexton def. Javi-Ait with an over the shoulder piledriver in a great match
Part 2 Mo def. William Wyeth by DQ
Originally Wyeth won after knocking Mo out with a chain. Thomas Roriguez comes out and tells referee Karl Curland the chain is in Wyeth’s kneepad. Karl searched and found the chain and DQd Wyeth
Hardway gets the microphone and tells Mo he will now have a handicap match with Style & Finesse with no DQ.
Mo def. Style & Finesse in a no DQ handicap match when Team Yea!
interfered by holding Mike Donovan at bay as Mo pinned Rob Vegas with a small package
Hardway then hits Mo with a chair and says he had one more member for him to wrestle.
Mo def. Alexa Thatcher to sucessfully run the H Inc. Gauntlet Alexa tried to pin Mo who was still down from Hardway’s chairshot but kicked out at 2 and then started to “Hulk Up”. Alexa slapped Mo but no selled it. Hardway came up to the apron but was met with a “You!” punch.
Mo whipped Alexa to the ropes hit the big boot cuffed his hand tho his ear hit the big leg drop and then 1…..2……3.
Mo then told Hardway that since he ran the gauntlet in succession he gets a title shot. He then said he was cashing it in at “Rise 2 Power”
on 11/10 and said that he would also choose the stipulation. He told Hardway that he will end this by making him say “I Quit”.
This show kicked F’N ass. Somebody should tell Vince McMahon how to put on a go home show to a big event the right way because ACE knows how to do so. It seems that 11/10 will be a tough act to follow.
