(Video package covering the feud between the Dangerous Alliance and Dusty's Dream Team.)

The World's Greatest Tag Team (Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas, w/Paul E. Dangerously and 911) vs. The Nasty Boys (Jerry Sags and Brian Knobbs, w/"The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes)

LG: The following tag team contest is scheduled for one fall.

(The Nasty Boys' music plays)

LG: Introducing first, being led to the ring by their manager Dusty Rhodes and representing Dusty's Dream Team, from Nastyville, JERRYS SAGS AND BRIAN KNOBS, THE NASTY BOYS!

Crowd boos.

(Bodies by Drowning Pool plays)

LG: And their opponents, being led to the ring by their manager Paul E. Dangerously and his bodyguard 911 and representing the Dangerous Alliance, from Orangeburg, SC, SHELTON BENJAMIN and from Edmond, OK, CHARLIE HAAS, THE WORLD'S GREATEST TAG TEAM!

Crowd cheers.

LG: Ladies and gentlemen, I have been instructed to announce that JWL Commissioner Mick Foley has ordered that Paul E. Dangerously, 911 and Dusty Rhodes have been banned from ringside for this match and that no members of the Dangerous Alliance or of Dusty's Dream Team may interfere or they will be suspended.

The managers provide their teams with some last-minute advice and then leave.

Sags and Haas start and Haas uses his speed, youth and technical skill to counter Sags' power and brawling style. Haas gets a dropkick for 2. Haas keeps ups the offense, drawing great pops. Haas tags in Shelton, who continues to control the offense. Knobs gets in a cheap shot from outside, putting Shelton in the face-in-peril role. The Nasty Boys take over and just beat the hell out of Shelton. Nothing fancy, just stiff, ugly brawling. Haas encourages a "Shelton, Shelton" chant to get Benjamin back into this. Shelton starts to comeback and he and Knobs double-clothesline each other leading to the TKO spot and the race to tag. Knobs tags Sags back into the ring and he cuts off Shelton, drawing boos. Sags grabs Shelton's ankle, but Shelton is somehow able to fight back and hit an enzuigiri with his free foot. Shelton FINALLY makes the tag to Haas to a big pop. Charlie comes in and takes over on Sags, getting some 2-counts. However, he can not quite put the larger Sags away. Haas and Sags go back and forth for a bit, until Royals member RANDY ORTON slips out from under the ring and hits Shelton with the RKO out of nowhere! With Haas distracted by this, Sags takes over, leading to the Pitstop Elbow for the pin at 9:00!

LG: Here are your winners, THE NASTY BOYS!

The Nasties and Orton celebrate the win and Dusty makes his way back out and PAYS OFF Orton for helping them as the crowd boos.

As the heels celebrate and Haas and Benjamin recover and slowly head to the back, the pyro goes off and the JWL World Heavyweight Champion KANE power walks down to the ring, sending everyone running off to the back.

Kane takes a microphone and enters the ring.

KANE: I AM THE JWL WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION AND I WANT COMPETITION! NO ONE HAS EVER PINNED ME IN SINGLES COMPETITION IN THE JWL AND NO ONE EVER WILL! I WILL NOT LEAVE THIS RING UNTIL SOMEONE COMES OUT HERE AND ACCEPTS MY CHALLENGE TO WRESTLE ME TONIGHT FOR THE JWL WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!

Dead silence for a minute or so until we hear...

(Live for the Moment plays)

MATT HARDY makes his way out and grabs a microphone.

MATT: KANE, you said that you wanted someone to answer your challenge to wrestle you tonight for the JWL World Heavyweight Title. Well, consider it answered. I will see you tonight!

The crowd cheers, although they and the announcers are not sure if this was the best decision Matt Hardy could have made.

(We go back to Jack Swagger making his surprise debut as Johnny Nitro's tag team partner for the match against Al Snow and the Blue Meanie on Episode 64.)

The Blue Meanie vs. "The All-American American" Jack Swagger

LG: The following contest is scheduled for one fall.

(Swagger's music plays)

LG: Introducing first, from Perry, OK, 'THE ALL-AMERICAN AMERICAN' JACK SWAGGER!

(Crowd boos.)

(Let Me Clear My Throat by DJ Kool plays)

LG: And his opponent, from Pepperland, THE BLUE MEANIE!

Crowd cheers.

Before the match starts, Swagger gets on the mic and talks about how he is the All-American American and that he deserves better competition than the Blue Meanie, who would have never received a full athletic scholarship to the University of Oklahoma and judging by the Meanie's physique, wherever Pepperland is, it clearly does not have a university with an athletic program accredited by the NCAA or even a decent gym. Meanie pretends to be intimidated.

The match starts, and Swagger immediately trips up the Meanie and works over him on the mat. Scott and Mike talk about Swagger's amateur background and how he will have to rely on it to counter the unorthodox Blue Meanie. Swagger controls for a few minutes with technical wrestling, drawing heel heat. As the match continues, Dusty Rhodes walks out and appears to be taking notes. Then Royals manager Jerry "The King" Lawler makes his way out and he also appears to be studying Swagger's performance. Then Daivari International manager Khosrow Daivari makes his way out as well. Meanie comes back and hits some decent stuff of his own. Swagger comes back and takes control again. Finally, Swagger blocks a Meanie dropkick attempt and gets the ankle lock. Meanie tries to get to the ropes but he can not quite make it. Meanie taps out to give Swagger the win at 8:00!

LG: Here is your winner, 'THE ALL-AMERICAN AMERICAN' JACK SWAGGER!

Crowd boos.

Swagger poses to celebrate the win as referees help Meanie to the back. As Swagger heads toward the back, Lawler, Rhodes and Daivari all try to get in his face and appear to be interested in managing him. Swagger does not give an answer.

JESSE: Hey everybody, I'm Jesse and this is my big brother Festus. We're the Daltons and we're all excited about making our big debut on JWL TV NEXT WEEK! And that, THAT, is the face of someone who is going be THE next big JWL superstar!

JESSE AND FESTUS- COMING NEXT WEEK

LG: And her opponent, from Dallas, TX, JACQUELINE!

Jacqueline walks to the ring and points to the sky, which Scott Hudson acknowledges as a tribute to her late trainer Gen. Skandor Akbar.

Jackie and Melina lock up and we get a solid scientific wrestling match with great moves from both women. They both get several 2-counts. After several minutes, Jackie takes over. Jackie finishes with a powerbomb for 3 at the 9:00 mark, giving Melina her first singles loss in the JWL.

LG: Here is your winner, JACQUELINE!

Crowd cheers.

Crowd boos.

(Jungle Boogie plays)

LG: And his opponent, from Denver, CO, 2 COLD SCORPIO!

Crowd cheers.

Python attacks before Scorpio can get into the ring. Python throws Scorpio into the ring and tosses him around with some good power moves. Scorpio bumps a lot and tries to rely on speed and aerial offense to throw the Python off of his game. It works a little bit but not enough. The Python crushes Scorpio and finishes with Beyond Rangoon (pumphandle tombstone) for the pin at 6:00.

LG: Here is your winner, THE BURMESE PYTHON!

Daivari and the Python celebrate the win as referees help Scorpio to the back. Daivari gets on the mic and starts to say something about getting the now vacant JWL World Tag Team Titles back in the hands of Daivari International when the lights go off and then come back on again a few times. Daivari appears a bit surprised but does not show it too much.

JESSE: Hey everybody, I'm Jesse and this is my big brother Festus. We're the Daltons and we're all excited about making our big debut on JWL TV NEXT WEEK! And that, THAT, is the face of someone who is going be THE next big JWL superstar!

We get several minutes of exciting back-and-forth action from both guys, mixing in both aerial and mat-based offense to the delight of the crowd. Funaki goes for a senton splash off the top but it misses. Chavo capitalizes and delivers a Brainbuster and finishes with the frogsplash for the pin at 9:00.

KABOOM!

(Burned plays)

LG: And his opponent, from Parts Unknown, he is the JWL World Heavyweight Champion, 'THE BIG RED MACHINE' KANE!

Crowd boos.

Like the Python-Scorpio match earlier, this is speed and skill vs. size and power. Matt flies around and does his best to avoid Kane's power stuff. Matt throws everything he can at Kane but he can not keep him down. Kane takes control and never loses it, finishing with the chokeslam and the Tombstone for the pin at 9:00.

LG: Here is your winner, and still the JWL World Heavyweight Champion, KANE!

Crowd boos. Kane makes the pyro go off in celebration. Paul and 911 enter the ring to help Matt and we get a brief staredown between Kane and 911 before the faces leave.

Scott and Mike wrap up the show and thank everyone for watching.

End of show.
