Live from the HP Pavilion at San Jose in San Jose, CA
You know the drill.
We start with ten-bell counts for Steve Bradley, Rolling Hard, Cousin Junior, Paul E. Normous, Test, Steve Doll, Abismo Negro, Buddy Rose, John Tolos, Mitsuharu Misawa and Billy Red Lyons. R.I.P.
JR and Tenay welcome us to the show and throw to a video package recapping the events at JWL Vengeance I, particularly emphasizing the Redneck Wrecking Crew defeating the Faces of Fear for the JWL World Tag Team Championships, the Undertaker triumphing over Rhino in the Casket Match, and ending with Kane holding his newly won JWL World Heavyweight Championship.
We go right to Joey Styles in the ring.
JOEY: Please welcome my guest at this time, he is the new JWL World Heavyweight Champion, 'THE BIG RED MACHINE' KANE!
Pyro goes off as the new Champ walks to the ring to a chorus of boos.
Kane enters the ring and grabs the mic from Joey, who bails.
KANE: I SAID THAT I AM A MONSTER AND A FREAK AND THAT NO CAN STOP ME! I HAVE LIVED UP TO EVERY WORD OF THAT! I HAVE NEVER BEEN DEFEATED IN SINGLES COMPETITION IN THE JWL AND I NEVER WILL! I DON'T CARE WHO CHALLENGES ME BECAUSE I CAN NOT BE STOPPED!
Kane makes the pyro go off in celebration and leaves.

Opening mixed-tag team match: D-Lo Brown and Jacqueline vs. Johnny Nitro and Melina Perez
LG: The following mixed-tag team contest is scheduled for one fall.
(Paparazzi plays, as the red carpet rolls out and the photographers surround the heels.)
LG: Introducing first, from Los Angeles, CA, JOHNNY NITRO AND MELINA PEREZ!
(The Real Deal plays)
LG: And their opponents, from New Jersey, D-LO BROWN and from Dallas, TX, JACQUELINE!
Brown and Nitro start first, and some great wrestling action results. Both guys hit some good moves on each other. D-Lo gets a 2-count off of a powerslam. Nitro fights back and hits a neckbreaker for 2. The double-KO sets up the race to tag, bringing in the women. Jacqueline attacks Melina, angry over her loss to the Paparazzi Princess on Episode 60. Jackie controls, drawing great face pops. After a few minutes, Jackie goes for the Tornado DDT but Melina blocks it. Jackie counters with a good hard Texas clothesline right to the throat. Jackie gets 2, and tags in D-Lo, prompting Melina to bring Nitro back into the match. They go back and forth for a few more minutes, until Nitro takes control and goes for the Moonlight Drive. D-Lo blocks that and turns it into the Sky-High! D-Lo climbs up and hits the Lo Down for the pin at 9:00.
LG: Here are your winners, the team of D-LO BROWN AND JACQUELINE!
JR explains that the Faces of Fear have demanded a rematch against the new JWL World Tag Team Champions the Redneck Wrecking Crew, and that the rematch will be our main event.
JESSE: Hey everybody. I'm Jesse and this is my big brother Festus. We're the Daltons and we're all excited about coming to the JWL. And that, THAT is the face of a superstar in the making.
The Dalton Brothers
(Video package covering the feud between the defunct Hardcore Alliance and the Royals.)
"The Hardcore Chair-Swinging Freak" Balls Mahoney vs. "The Legend-Killer" Randy Orton (w/Jerry "The King" Lawler)
LG: The following contest is scheduled for one fall.
(Burn in the Light plays)
LG: Introducing first, being led to the ring by Jerry 'The King' Lawler and representing the Royals, from St. Louis, MO, 'THE LEGEND-KILLER' RANDY ORTON!
(Big Balls plays)
LG: And his opponent, from Nutley, NJ, 'THE HARDCORE CHAIR-SWINGING FREAK' BALLS MAHONEY!
JR tells us that Orton demanded that this match be a regular match instead of a hardcore match.
Balls actually does some straight wrestling here, proving that he can work well outside of his usual brawling style. He and Orton go back and forth for a while. Orton cheats a lot to keep control, with Lawler interfering as necessary. After several minutes, Orton hits the RKO on Balls for the surprise pin at 8:00! Orton then hits the running kick to the head! Balls has to be taken out on a stretcher!
LG: Here is your winner, 'THE LEGEND-KILLER' RANDY ORTON!
Orton poses to celebrate the win, but Live for the Moment plays, bringing out Matt Hardy.
Matt Hardy: Randy Orton, you like to think of yourself as a legend killer. Someone who can destroy the legacies of some of the greatest stars in wrestling history. Well, I am calling you out for next week. You may try to kill the legend of the Hardyz and Team Xtreme, but Matt Hardy WILL NOT DIE!
When we come back, we are surprised to hear OOOH CHAVO!
The crowd pops as Chavo Guerrero Jr. walks out to the ring. Chavo does an Eddie Guerrero shimmy to more cheers.
Chavo: I have been on the sidelines too long. I am here to win the JWL Cruiserweight Championship and, more importantly, not to lose it. I am a Guerrero which makes me better than anyone else in that locker room. So, I am issuing an open challenge for right now to any of those Cruiserweights in the back. Get out here!
STAND BACK, THERE'S A HURRICANE COMING THROUGH!
The crowd cheers as Hurricane Helms makes his way to the ring. Helms says he accepts the challenge and calls for a referee, bringing out Chad Patton.
Impromptu match: Hurricane Helms vs. "The Mexican Warrior" Chavo Guerrero Jr.
Great action to start, with both guys putting on a show to delight the crowd. Each gets 2-counts on the other. After going back and forth for several minutes, Chavo takes control and finishes with a brainbuster and the frog splash for the pin at 8:00.
LG: Here is your winner, 'THE MEXICAN WARRIOR' CHAVO GUERRERO JR.!
(We go back to 2 Cold Scorpio defeating HHH on Episode 58 to advance to the semi-finals of the JWL World Heavyweight Championship Tournament.)
2 Cold Scorpio vs. HHH
LG: The following contest is scheduled for one fall.
LG: Introducing first, from Greenwich, CT, HHH!
(Jungle Boogie plays)
LG: And his opponent, from Denver, CO, 2 COLD SCORPIO!
JR informs us that HHH demanded this rematch.
HHH controls to start, with Scorpio still a bit shaken up from his match with Kane at Vengeance. HHH hits some of his usual stuff and gets a couple of 2-counts. Scorpio fights back, but he clearly is at less than 100%. HHH continues on offense as Scorpio looks to be getting a second wind. Scorpio comes back with dropkicks and a top rope legdrop for 2. He tries going up top again but HHH stops him, knees him in the head and hits the Pedigree for the pin at 9:00.
LG: Here is your winner, HHH!
(Video package covering Ivory and Tori's past battles in WWE and the JWL.)
Ivory vs. Tori
LG: The following women's contest is scheduled for one fall.
(The Power by Snap! plays)
LG: Introducing first, representing Raven's Nest, from Portland, OR, TORI!
(Ivory's music plays)
LG: And her opponent, from Torrance, CA, IVORY!
Good solid match from these two veterans. Although Raven is not at ringside, Tori is able to remain focused here and hits some good stuff. Ivory controls for a few minutes. Tori fights back but can not put Ivory away. Ivory wins with a DDT in 9:00.
LG: Here is your winner, IVORY!
(We go back to the Redneck Wrecking Crew, Trevor Murdoch and Lance Cade, defeating the JWL World Tag Team Champions the Faces of Fear, Meng and the Barbarian, to win the belts at Vengeance.)
Main Event, JWL World Tag Team Championship: The Redneck Wrecking Crew (Trevor Murdoch and Lance Cade) © (w/Khosrow Daivari) vs. the Faces of Fear (Meng and the Barbarian) (w/"The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart)
LG: The following contest is our Main Event. It is scheduled for one fall and is for the JWL World Tag Team Championships.
(Daivari's music plays)
LG: Introducing first, being led to the ring by Khosrow Daivari and representing Daivari International, they are the JWL World Tag Team Champions, from the great state of Texas, TREVOR MURDOCH AND LANCE CADE, THE REDNECK WRECKING CREW!
(The FOF's music plays)
LG: And their opponents, being led to the ring by 'The Mouth of the South' Jimmy Hart, from the Kingdom of Tonga, MENG AND THE BARBARIAN, THE FACES OF FEAR!
The FOF still look angry and confused over having lost the titles after holding them since WrestleMania as Hart tries to calm them and keep them focused.
Meng and Murdoch start, and they brawl for a while. Nothing fancy, just a rough, hard-hitting battle. Both teams go back and forth for a while. Daivari attacks Hart again and beats him up on the floor. Referee Jim Molineux sends the managers back to the locker room. Murdoch tells Molineux to pay attention to the match. This turns out to be a smart move for once, as Molineux turns around just in time to see the RWC hit Sweet and Sour on Barbarian for the pin to retain the belts at 12:00!
LG: Here are your winners, and still the JWL World Tag Team Champions, TREVOR MURDOCH AND LANCE CADE, THE REDNECK WRECKING CREW!
Crowd boos. The heels collect their belts and celebrate while Meng and Barbarian regroup and head to the back confused. JR and Tenay thank everyone for watching and the show ends.
