OVW goes EXTRRREME~!

Interesting tidbit on the OVW tapings, where Johnny Jeter turned heel on his partner Matt Capotelli (who has a legit broken leg).

 

 

Then, Johnny Jeter came out and cut a great heel promo. I thought his promo last week was lacking, but this one rocked. A really good heel promo and the same people who were screaming for him at the beginning were really booing him at the end. Jeter then defended the OVW Title in a 15 minute match against Brent Albright. Matt Cappotelli came out and sat ringside. Albright locked in the crowbar, but Jeter was in the ropes. Albright had to break. Jeter rolled out of the ring and superkicked the injured Cappotelli. Jeter took the chair and creamed Albright with it. The referee called for the bell.

 

I should point out that the referee, Chris Kay, who is also a WWE referee, threw up in the ring about three times in 15 seconds right before the crowbar, and it was disgusting.

 

And even though that happened, and it stunk in the hot Davis Arena, everyone stayed (which is unusual) because they were into the match.

 

Jeter turned around and hit Capotelli in the head with the chair and then went berserk with it.

 

This is where I'm not sure what happened. Al Snow jumped out of his chair in a panic and grabbed Jeter. It looked like they were legit fighting. The dressing room cleared, with some running to Cappotelli and some running to Jeter. I could see Alexis Laree really crying when she got to Cappotelli. There was blood everywhere. Not just OVW Trainer Eric Langly, but two medics arrived within minutes and you could see the concern on people's faces. Jeter was rushed out of there, and two refs got Albright out quietly. They tended to Cappotelli for about 10 minutes, and you could see Dean Hill was clearly shaken up.

 

They did something for tv, which I could see on the OVWTron, with Dean Hill, who had Cappotelli's blood on his face, hands, and shirt. Dean was clearly shaken badly.

 

When they finally got Capotelli on the gurney, he was wheeled out into the parking lot and taken to an emergency vehicle in the back of the arena. There were security guards not allowing anyone in that section of the parking lot, which was a first. So that's either because it was a well done angle, or because Cappotelli got hurt legit again. It was very intense either way.

 

They announced there was no special added (dark) match after the tapings tonight, which was also strange, because no matter what, there always is. There were two dark matches earlier in the evening, one featuring The Tolands with Jillian Hall, who wore a big ugly bandage where the mole should be, and The Tolands promised to settle the issue as to who she would publicize with MNM this Friday at Six Flags.

 

I don't know how much of the Cappotelli angle was an angle and how much of it was the result of a chairshot gone wrong, but this was one of the most effective angles I've ever seen live and next week's OVW TV Tapings should be very interesting. Say what you want about Paul Heyman, he has OVW buzzing right now.

 

 

Heyman usually isn't a worked shoot kind of guy, so I'm thinking this might have been a chairshot gone wrong. Either way, I hope one of our collectors can track this down when it becomes available.

Most of Heyman's worked shoots were promo form. The only time I can remember a worked shoot in ECW was the whole Benoit breaking Sabu's neck deal, which was more of them making lemonade from lemons, since it was a real fuckup they they were able to use to get Benoit over as the Crippler.

Is Heyman that good he can get that many people in a development fed to convincingly act like everything was real? That's the only part that leads me to think something went amiss. Maybe Matt bladed too deep, or got busted legit with the chairshot, it just seems like something was not according to plan.

From the sounds of it, looks like the chairshot went wrong, Jeter didn't know this and continued on with what he was supposed to do, everyone jumps in legit to stop the continuation, and we'll be having some lemonade now from this lemon.

 

Or if this is all a shoot, I kudos Heyman for basically stirring up interest in OVW.
