Today's program kicked off with a presentation
of the Funking Conservatory's Fighting Heart Award. The recipient would
be the latest graduate of the Funking Conservatory's Teenager program, 15 year old Vin Detta.
Vin took the microphone to say a few words, "First I would like to thank Mr. & Mrs. Funk. Second I would like to thank
The Royal Stud Adam Windsor. Last but not least, I would like to thank my new best friend, Bobby "Bonecrusher" Smith.".
Bonecrusher came to the ring to join his new little "buddy". Vin then looked at Adam and said, "Windsor, YOU SUCK!!!!!!".
Adam then told Bonecrusher that their match would be a World Heavyweight Championship match and that he could have
Vin at ringside. That match will be profiled later in the report.
The first match on today's show would feature
tag team action as the team of Gino Gambino & Samson would take on
team of Untouchable Leon Scott & the Funking Conservatory European Champion Sledgehammer. Scott and Sledgehammer
would have Tiziana in their corner.
Scott and Gino would start off for their respective teams. Gino gained an early advantage on Scott with a waistlock. Scott
countered with a waistlock of his own, but Gino countered back with a wristlock. Gino made the first tag of the match to
Samson started right off with a whip into the ropes and a huge clothesline on Scott. Samson bounced off the ropes and gave
Scott a legdrop, Samson went for the cover, but Scott kicked out at two. Samson bounced off the ropes and gave Scott a
forearm shot to his head. Samson tried the cover again, but Scott kicked out again at two. Samson picked Scott up and made
the tag to his partner Gino.
Gino came back in and applied a headlock to Scott and followed up with the headlock takeover. Gino went for the cover,
but Scott kicked out at two. Gino made the quick tag to Samson. Samson came back in and started to stomp on Scott.
Samson continued with a powerslam and then tried to pin Scott with his foot, but Scott easily kicked out at two.
Samson tried to put Scott out with a cobra clutch, but Scott was able to escape when he gave Samson a low blow. Scott
started to comeback by giving Samson a huge chop in the ropes. Scott then whipped Samson into the ropes and went for a
shoulder tackle, but both men ended up going down.
Samson was the first one up and he tried to end the match again by picking Scott up and planting him with a chokeslam.
Samson went for the cover, but Scott somehow kicked out at two. Samson then draped Scott over the middle rope and
gave him a kick to the groin area. Samson bounced off the ropes and went to land on Scott's back, but Scott moved and
Samson went through the ropes to the floor. Scott then made the much needed tag to Sledgehammer.
Sledgehammer made his first appearance in the match by helping Scott double whip Samson into the ropes and went
for the double clothesline, but Samson ducked and ended up clotheslining both Sledgehammer and Scott. Samson was
able to tag Gino back in.
Before referee The Claw knew it, all four men were in the ring at the same time. As Gino battled with Sledgehammer,
Samson whipped Scott into the ropes and planted him on the mat with the spinebuster. Gino, who was the legal man,
made the cover for three and the victory. Your winners and NEW Funking Conservatory Tag Team Champions, Gino
Gambino & Samson.
The next match would be the match for the Funking
Conservatory World Heavyweight Championship between
Adam Windsor and Bonecrusher, who had Vin Detta in his corner.
The match started off with a collar & elbow tie up between both wrestlers. Bonecrusher would shove Adam
halfway across the ring into the corner. As Adam went to get up, Vin grabbed his foot. Adam would get a headlock
on Bonecrusher, but Bonecrusher sent Adam into the ropes and back down to the mat with a huge shoulder tackle.
Adam would fight back with an armtwist into an armbar on Bonecrusher. Adam was forced to break the hold when
Bonecrusher got his feet on the ropes. Adam went right back to work on Bonecrusher's arm with the armbar. Adam
tried for a cover, but Bonecrusher kicked out at two. Adam tried for the cover again, but Bonecrusher kicked out
again at two.
Adam then applied a modified armbar submission hold on Bonecrusher, but Adam was forced to break the hold
when Bonecrusher grabbed the bottom rope. Bonecrusher challenged Adam to a test of strength. Adam tricked
Bonecrusher by twisting him back into the armbar. Bonecrusher countered with a legsweep and went to work on
Adam countered back with the armbar into a reverse surfboard. Bonecrusher refused to give up. Adam rolled
him into a pin, but Bonecrusher kicked out at two. Adam then switched to a full surfboard, but Bonecrusher still
refused to tap out. Adam tried a crossface submission hold, but the trucker from Long Haul, TX, still would not
submit. Bonecrusher did manage to get a foot on the ropes forcing Adam to break the hold.
Adam went back to work on Bonecrusher's left arm, but was knocked down to the mat by Bonecrusher's right
hook. Bonecrusher continued his offense with three forearm shots to Adam's head. Bonecrusher then applied the
camel clutch to Adam hoping he would submit, but Adam refused to do so. Adam tried to get hold of Bonecrusher's
left arm again, but Bonecrusher rolled him up for the pin, but The Claw could only count to two.
Bonecrusher whipped Adam into the ropes and then bounced off the ropes himself to start a criss cross.
Bonecrusher dropped down, Adam hopped over, and as Adam bounced off the ropes again Bonecrusher caught
him with the bionic elbow. Bonecrusher delivered the elbow drop and went for the cover, but Adam kicked out at two.
Bonecrusher wrapped Adam up in a reverse chinlock and then proceeded to bite him on the forehead. Bonecrusher
followed up by placing Adam in a huge bodyslam. Bonecrusher whipped Adam into the corner and caught him with a
As Bonecrusher distracted The Claw, Adam was strangled across the bottom rope by Vin. Bonecrusher whipped
Adam into the ropes and went for a clothesline, but both men ended up with a clothesline on each other. Adam was
the first man up and he started to fight back with several forearm shots to the head of Bonecrusher followed up by a
DDT. Adam went for the cover, but Bonecrusher kicked out at two.
Adam followed up with a bodyslam and went for another cover, but Bonecrusher once again kicked out at two.
Adam tried to end the match again with a huge suplex on Bonecrusher, but Bonecrusher somehow kicked out again
Adam went to the top rope to try the missile dropkick, but was strattled on the turnbuckle when Vin climbed
onto he ring apron and shook the top rope. Vin then reached under the ring and grabbed a metal chair which he
tossed to Bonecrusher. Vin then ran into the ring to distract The Claw. While her back was turned, Bonecrusher
went to hit Adam in the head with the chair, but Adam was ready as he kicked Bonecrusher in the midsection.
Adam grabbed the chair and smacked Bonecrusher in the skull with it, but The Claw had turned around and
saw what Adam did. She called for the bell and announced that Adam had been disqualified for using the chair.
She then announced Bonecrusher as the winner, but Adam would retain the Funking Conservatory World
Heavyweight Championship since the title cannot change hands on a DQ.
Both Bonecrusher and Vin attacked Adam from behind. As they stomped away, Samson came into the ring for
the save. Vin quickly retreated but Bonecrusher wasn't so lucky. Bonecrusher tried to hit Samson with the chair, but
Samson ducked and caught Bonecrusher with the spinebuster.
