Welcome back to All Star Wrestling - results from November 9, 2012 World Title - Daniel Bryan (26/10/12) Intercontinental Title - Damian Sandow (14/9/12) Tag Team Titles – Kane & John Cena (7/9/12) European Title - Ryback (12/10/12) Legends Title - Chris Jericho (19/10/12) No recap tonight, as everyone is talking about Batista appearing at the end of last week's show, and he is in the ring to start us off tonight with an explanation. Batista tells everyone he didn't come back to be World Champion...again...he didn't come back with a need to prove himself. He has done everything in this business. He didn't come back out of any relevance deprivation disorder. Batista says he came back for one thing. Batista says he got sick and tired of watching Sheamus talk himself up as World Champion. Sure he was champion for nine months. That's pretty impressive. But the idea that Sheamus is the biggest badass in All Star Wrestling shows just how far it has sunk since Batista left two and a half years ago. So he has a question for Sheamus. If he really does love to fight...fella...come and fight Batista at Supercard and prove just how badass you are. Colt Cabana comes to the ring, accompanied by CM Punk. They are followed by Kassius Ohno, and Antonio Cesaro. Ohno dominates and is set to get the win, when he distracted by Punk jumping on the apron. As Cesaro confronts Punk, Colt wins with the schoolboy roll up. Colt Cabana bt Kassius Ohno After the match, Punk grabs a mic and waves goodbye to the Kings of Wrestling, as Cesaro tells him this ain't over. Punk tells Cesaro, yeah yeah blah blah blah this ain't over. Whatever. Punk says what he did tonight is something he does out of loyalty to his friends, and loyalty to the people who have his back. He says you know who has never had his back? Mick Foley. He says he is glad Batista was out here earlier talking about relevance deprivation syndrome, because no one suffers from it more than Mick Foley. Punk questions why Foley was even in the Battle Royal match two weeks ago. He must have known he couldn't win it! He was there just to be a spoiler. But he picked the wrong guy. Punk talks about how he has a long memory, whereas Foley has been beat up so much over the years he probably can't remember what he had for breakfast this morning. Punk says he is going to find Mick Foley, and show him up for what he is - an old, beat up, broken down shell of a man, who will find out just how stupid it was to poke the Best in the World!! Backstage, Sheamus is asked about the challenge from Batista. Sheamus says he was born to fight, and he has never backed down from a fight in his life. He reminds us that it was he who put Batista out of business two and a half years ago; and he can do it again at Supercard. Mark Henry is in the ring, awaiting his opponent, Drew McIntyre. McIntyre has a mic, but before he can speak, Henry grabs him and unleashes a barrage of punishment. McIntyre can't get any offence in, and Henry picks up the squash win. Mark Henry bt Drew McIntyre Antonio Cesaro is backstage, still upset about what happened earlier tonight, and calls out CM Punk to face him one on one next week. Brodus Clay is in the ring. He says he is sick of people coming up to him asking about what happened to the dancing Funkasaurus. Brodus says he's a fun loving guy, but he also demands respect. Brodus says he will only get that respect when he has gold around his waist, and you don't get that by dancing. And you do know that!! Chavo Guerrero makes his way to the ring, and tries to get in some early offence. He fails to knock Brodus down though, and is taken down with a clothesline. Chavo bounces up, but is caught in a bear hug by Brodus. Chavo is fading fast, but Brodus runs at the ropes, releasing the hold and knocking Chavo down again. Brodus finishes it off with the Funk It splash to get the win. Brodus Clay bt Chavo Guerrero John Cena comes to the ring. He apologises to Kane for low blowing him last week in his match against Triple H. He says he was still angry about Kane's behaviour at Battle Royal but that is no excuse. The fact is, somehow, they are still the tag team champions. And John Cena likes being a champion. So tonight, he faces Triple H; and any interference from Kane will have ramifications for the tag team titles. So he is asking Kane to act like he has some sense, and not interfere in the match tonight. Kane comes to the ring and says Cena has got him all wrong. Kane says everything he does is for the good of the team. Cena looks confused, but Kane points out that they are still the tag team champions. Kane says they can handle anything that Triple H throws at them; but he will stay out of the match tonight. He wishes Cena good luck and leaves the ring. Cena still looks on confused by Kane's mood swings. Justin Gabriel and Christopher Daniels are on their way to the ring for a number one contenders match for the Tag Team Titles. Their opponents are Kurt Angle and Tyson Kidd. Kidd and Gabriel start off, matching each other with high octane offence. Gabriel tags Daniels in who goes for a BME straight away, but is caught by Kidd mid-air and slammed to the mat. 1 2 Daniels kicks out. Kidd tags in Angle who goes to work on Daniels’ legs, trying to soften him up for the ankle lock. Daniels counters and gets the upper hand, forcing Angle into the corner. Daniels tags Gabriel in again, and they double team Angle until the referee can get Daniels out of the ring. Gabriel unleashes a flurry of elbows and European uppercuts, knocking Angle to the canvas. Gabriel goes to the ropes and goes for the 450 splash, but Angle rolls out of the way and tags in Kidd. Kidd takes advantage of Gabriel already being on the mat and sets up the sharpshooter. Gabriel tries to get to the ropes, but is eventually pulled back to the centre of the ring and is forced to tap out. Kurt Angle/Tyson Kidd bt Justin Gabriel/Christopher Daniels to become the new #1 contenders for the Tag Team Titles. Backstage, Austin Aries says last week's loss to The Miz was a fluke, and tonight he will prove Double A is the better man. AJ Styles and Samoa Joe face up against Cody Rhodes and Joey Ryan. AJ and Joe get in most of the offence, dominating Cody and Joey. Samoa Joe sets up Joey for the muscle buster, but is attacked from behind by Cody. AJ runs in, but Cody grabs the ropes and AJ goes flying over the top. Joey makes the tag to Cody who comes in to hit crossroads for the pin. Cody Rhodes/Joey Ryan bt AJ Styles/Samoa Joe Alberto Del Rio comes to the ring and says he has been feeling himself getting a little bored. Even a little stale. He says that's what happens when you achieve everything there is to achieve in your first year. Alberto says he has already been World Champion, and one day will be again. But he needs a challenge. Del Rio says he will issue an open challenge for anyone in the back to come down to face him now. Big Show's music hits, and Alberto looks worried at first, but pulls himself together and attacks Show as he enters the ring. They go back and forth trading blows until the spill through the ropes onto the floor. The referee tries to get them back into the ring, but Show chokeslams Del Rio through the announce table. Both men are counted out. Show stands over Del Rio, who slowly rises back to his feet, and grabs a chair and wails on Show until he is down on his knees. Del Rio then puts Show in the Cross Arm Breaker, and it takes several referees to break them up. Alberto Del Rio and Big Show - No Contest Wade Barrett enters the ring, and his match with Dolph Ziggler is up next. Barrett punishes Ziggler for his interference in his match last week, before Ziggler escapes to the outside to shake off the blows. Ziggler gets back in the ring, and uses his speed and agility to get the upper hand. There are a number of close falls in this one, as Barrett ends up going for the Bullhammer Elbow. Ziggler ducks underneath it though and nails Barrett with the Zig Zag. Ziggler makes the pin. 1 2 3 Dolph Ziggler bt Wade Barrett After the match, Ziggler escapes the ring and goes through the crowd as Barrett looks pissed. Daniel Bryan comes to the top of the ramp and asks Barrett if he can't beat Dolph Ziggler, how does he think he will beat him for the World Title at Supercard? Bryan does his NO shtick, leaving Barrett even angrier in the ring. Backstage, Derrick Bateman is walking around in his US Flag trunks, telling everyone he is a True American Hero. He says America needs a new hero to distract them from the economy, unemployment, and Jack Swagger. Swagger enters the shot and tells Bateman that he is the All American American, and if anyone needs saving it is Bateman from his delusions of grandeur. Swagger reminds Bateman he beat him last week, and can do so again any time he chooses. Bateman says he has the masses on his side, as well as the tide of history. He tries to fly away ala Superman, but of course stays fixed on the spot. Swagger again just shakes his head and walks away. The Miz and Austin Aries are in the ring for the next match. Back and forth action in and outside the ring, as this evenly poised match sees both wrestler's talents showcased. Aries ends up getting the upper hand and nails Miz with the brain buster before making the cover. 1 2 3 Austin Aries bt The Miz Chris Jericho comes to the ring and talks about him being the Legends Title holder. Jericho talks about how he is a former World Champion, Tag Team Champion, European Champion, and now the Legends Champion. Jericho tells us how he has beaten everyone there is to beat, how he is the best in the world at what he does, and how he will keep this Legends Title until he is an old man, and he will wrestle Ox Baker or Bruno Sammartino when they're 90 in a bingo hall somewhere, because it really doesn’t matter.' Chris Jericho is a Legend. And this title belt is staying exactly where it belongs. Sting comes out to the top of the ramp and says everything Chris Jericho has said is true. Well maybe not the part about Ox and Sammartino; but everything else is true. Chris Jericho has done it all. He is a true legend. Sting says part of being a legend though is to take on all comers, anytime, anywhere. So if Chris Jericho wants to get to that bingo hall in a couple of decades, he is first going to have to go through him. Sting challenges Jericho to a match at Supercard for the Legends Title. Jericho says it's hard to give Sting an answer right now, since there are so many more deserving opponents. He says anyone who saw his match at Old School last April knows that Triple H deserves a shot, but he seems a bit busy right now with that whole Cena and Kane circus. He says the year before at Old School he put on a clinic with the man of 1000 holds, Dean Malenko; so many he should get a Legends Title shot. He tells Sting he will think about whether he is worthy, and get back to him. Sting tells Jericho to maybe just sleep on it. Dream about it. And when the nightmares start he will know that he has no choice but to go one on one with the Icon; Sting!! Kofi Kingston takes on Damian Sandow in a Battle Royal replay up next for the Intercontinental Title. Sandow uses his size advantage at first, keeping Kofi in the corner; but Kofi responds with kicks to Sandow's legs and then a flurry of high kicks and chops as he goes on the offensive. Sandow begs off, but Kofi keeps up the attack. Sandow is now in the corner, and gets Kofi with a rake to the eyes. Kofi recoils and Sandow is back on the attack. Sandow whips Kofi into the ropes and takes him down with a clothesline before hitting the elbow of disdain. Sandow covers 1 2 Kofi kicks out. Sandow pulls Kofi up to his feet, but Kofi gets free and nails Sandow with his educated feet. Kofi hits Boom Drop and covers, but Sandow also kicks out at 2. Sandow struggles on his feet and Kofi climbs the ropes and flies off the top rope knocking Sandow again. Kofi covers. 1 2 Sandow out again. This time Kofi gets Sandow to his feet and looks for Trouble in Paradise, but Sandow moves out of the way and catches Kofi with the straightjacket neckbreaker. Sandow makes the cover. 1 2 3 Damian Sandow bt Kofi Kingston to retain the Intercontinental Title Jeff Hardy comes to the ring with mic in hand.Jeff says there has been a lot of talk tonight about legends. He says he takes his hat off to Chris Jericho. He was the better man on the night at Battle Royal; and Jeff had his Legends Title shot fair and square and came up short. However, that doesn't mean he hasn't had some legendary moments in this very ring. Jeff says he wants to create one more, for old time’s sake. Jeff says he has been in tables matches, chair matches, ladder matches, and even all three at once; and he has always got up to fight another day. Jeff says there is nothing he would like more than at Supercard to be able to have one more TLC match, against the only man in All Star Wrestling who has been through the hell he has been through and came out the other side. He asks Bully Ray to join him in the ring. Bully Ray comes into the ring and they reminisce a bit about old battles. Bully Ray says like Jeff, he too had his shot at the Legends Title earlier this year and came up short. He can think of no better way to compensate than by fighting Jeff hardy in a TLC match at Supercard and stealing the whole damn show!! Bully Ray and Jeff embrace in the middle of the ring, and we have ourselves a TLC match at Supercard on December 28th. Kane is shown watching the monitor in the back as Triple H makes his entrance to the ring. John Cena makes his way down the ramp for our main event. Cena and Triple H lock up, and both look to get the upper hand with a power game. The test of strength comes out even, and Triple H moves back and leans on the ropes, smiling at Cena, who tells him to get on with it. Triple H comes back and gets Cena in a head lock, but Cena pushes him off into the ropes and knocks him down with a shoulder tackle. Triple H slowly gets back to his feet, as Cena tells him to again get on with it. They lock up again, and this time, Cena gets Triple H in the headlock, but is also pushed against the ropes, and Triple H takes Cena down with a high knee. Cena looks up at Triple H and uses the ropes to get back to his feet, as Triple H towers over him. They go back and forth trading blows, before Cena again whips him into the ropes and hits a shoulder block. This time Triple H stands his ground though, and takes Cena down with a clothesline. Cena gets back up, but is collected with elbows and high knee shits from Triple H, forcing him into the corner. The referee breaks it up and Cena gets a cheap shot in around the back of the referee. Triple H explodes, unwailing on Cena again in the corner, with the referee telling him he risks disqualification. Triple H eventually backs off, but Cena launches himself out of the corner, and takes Triple H down to the canvas with a flurry of blows. Cena makes a cover, but Triple H pushes him away on the one count. Kane is shown again watching on the monitor backstage. More back and forth action in this even match, with Cena escaping the pedigree, and Triple H avoiding the Attitude Adjustment. Just as it seems we are at a stalemate in this match, Kurt Angle and Tyson Kidd start to make their way down the ramp, and we are reminded they are the new #1 contenders to Cena & Kane's Tag Team Titles. Triple H leans over the ropes and asks them what the hell they are doing, and orders them to the back. Triple H turns around and walks into the Attitude Adjustment. Cena covers 1 2...Angle grabs Triple H's foot and places it on the ropes to break the count. Cena leaves the ring and starts brawling with Angle and Tyson, as the referee starts to count him out. Cena returns to the ring, and locks Triple H into the STF. Triple H crawls his way to the ropes, and Tyson offers to help him get there, but Triple H swats him away. Cena drags Triple H back into the middle of the ring, and he is forced to tap out. John Cena bt Triple H After the match, Angle and Kidd jump the ring and attack Cena, as Triple H rolls out of the ring. Kane runs down the ramp to make the save, hitting a double chokeslam on Angle and Kidd. Triple H grabs a mic and tells Angle and Kidd that if they don't get the job done next week, that's it. They won't ever get another shot at the Tag Team Titles. In fact, if they lose next week to Cena & Kane, they will have to disband as a tag team. Cena & Kane look pleased with this stipulation as ASW goes off the air.
