HWL Unbreakable PPV
August 29, 2010
Qwest Center
Omaha, Nebraska
(Attendance: 11,760)

Fireworks explode inside the arena as Josh Daniels and Scott Michaels welcome everyone to Omaha(!) The jam-packed crowd goes crazy as camera show off the stage set-up and the ring. Daniels and Michels announce that there are six huge matches tonight – including tonight's main event – a Ladder Match for the HWL Heavyweight Title. And, just added during the week from HWL Owner Peter Bradshaw: if either Mr. Anderson, Ric Flair, or Chelsea interfere, they will be fired on the spot. They then send it to the ring for tonight's first match…

Yoshi Tatsu vs. Kane

On paper, this match was heavily favored to be won by “The Big Red Monster”, and Kane appeared ready to make very short work of his smaller opponent tonight. However, Yoshi Tatsu, showing the same lack of care for himself that he showed last Monday, came out swinging, and shocked Kane with his tenacity. Tatsu showed a different kind of resolve than he has in the past, kicking out after TWO Choke Slams from Hell! Yet, he was unable to last much longer, and fell victim to a powerslam as Kane picked up the victory.

Kane pinned Yoshi Tatsu after a powerslam in 0:19:58.

The crowd begins to boo as the JumboTron shows the HWL Heavyweight Champion, AJ STYLES, entering the arena, flanked by Ric Flair and Chelsea. Josh Daniels and Scott Michaels talk about the fact that tonight is the “Rubber Match” between Styles and Desmond Wolfe; and that Peter Bradshaw has announced that neither man can challenge for the title as long as the other one hold it, after tonight.

A “hype” video shows the on-going verbal battle between The British Invasion and The Hart Dynasty, leading up to tonight's Tag Team Title Match.

HWL Tag Team Title Match:
The British Invasion vs. © The Hart Dynasty (w/Natalya)

A lot went in to making this match over the last few weeks: upsets, verbal assaults, and a lot of mockery on the end of the challengers. However, when it came time for The British Invasion to back up their words with action, they were unable to do so. The Hart Dynasty had the fan support tonight in Omaha, but they also had Natalya at ringside, which gave them an advantage – whether The British Invasion wanted to admit it or not. With Natalya keeping them at bay outside the ring, the Invasion weren't able to use underhanded tactics, and were caught off guard when Tyson Kidd pinned Brutus Magnus with a Victory Roll! After the match, as the Dynasty celebrated outside of the ring, Brutus Magnus looked at the referee in absolute shock as he tried to argue the call. He smashed his fists into the canvas as The Dynasty made their way up the ramp.

The Hart Dynasty (David Hart Smith & Tyson Kidd) defeated The British Invasion (Brutus Magnus & Rob Terry) when T. Kidd pinned B. Magnus after a Victory Roll in 0:06:19.

Backstage, Alisha Hicks is seen with MATT MORGAN, who has a sadistic smile crossing his face. Morgan says that he has done everything to persuade Kurt Angle to show his face on Anarchy for the past two weeks, and still “The Olympic Gold Medalist” is hiding from him. He says that Angle wasn't able to hide last Tuesday night, and that Morgan knows why Angle isn't here tonight: because he doesn't want to get another taste of what he got on “PCW Wrestling”. Morgan says that he'll go out to that ring, tonight, and wait all night for Angle to show up – if he has the guts.

Also backstage, standing by himself, D'ANGELO DINERO looks into the camera with a determined stare. Dinero says that tonight is going to be his night of redemption; the night when he gets back what he should've never lost in the first place. He says that, without being forced to vacate the title because of his leg injury, he'd be walking into Unbreakable as X-Division Champion. But, he says that the next best thing is going to be him beating MVP all over Omaha, and walking out with his title around his waist.

“I Quit” Match:
Matt Morgan vs. Steve Corino

The crowd was a little stunned by Kurt Angle's replacement tonight – the debuting Steve Corino, from PCW – but, Corino proved that he was a very capable opponent on the main stage. He gave “The Blueprint” much more of a fight than Morgan had bargained for, and just wouldn't quit! However, towards the end of the match, after getting slammed head-first into the steel ringsteps – and losing a lot of blood afterward – Corino was finished off by a vicious Carbon Footprint onto the concrete at ringside! Morgan, bloodied himself by a shot into the guardrail, brought Corino into the ring, where the referee noticed him unconscious, and called for the bell. After the match, Morgan stood over Corino, and celebrated his victory as the crowd booed.

Matt Morgan defeated Steve Corino when S. Corino passed out in a choke against the ropes in 0:46:39.

Backstage, Alisha Hicks is seen with the X-Division Champion, MONTEL VONTAVIOUS PORTER. Porter says that D'Angelo Dinero can blame his “little injury” all he wants to, as the reason why he had to give up the X-Division Title. But, MVP says that Dinero never earned the right to challenge for the title tonight, instead, he kept getting lucky break after lucky break before eventually ending up here tonight. MVP says that, had Dinero not vacated the title, he would've lost the belt last month anyway. He says that, tonight, he will show Dinero why he's the HWL's Playmaker; and why he should be – and is – the rightful owner of the X-Division Title belt.

Also backstage, CODY RHODES is seen getting ready for his match against Randy Orton, when he is confronted by “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes! The crowd goes crazy as the wrestling legend appears on-screen. But, the cheers quickly become jeers as Dusty tells Cody to stop at nothing to make sure Orton gets what he deserves. Dusty tells Cody that he's proud of him, for Inaking the initiative to bestow honor back on the family name, and that anything else then a victory tonight would not be tolerated.

X-Division Title Match:
D'Angelo Dinero vs. © Montel Vontavious Porter

The crowd was absolutely shocked – and not in a good way – at how quickly this match ended! These two men had been looking forward to this match for weeks, and they proved appeared ready to do battle, but a fluke accident in the center of the ring allowed Dinero to pin Porter for a surprising fast 1-2-3.

D'Angelo Dinero pinned Montel Vontavious Porter after a legsweep faceslam in 0:02:46.

Backstage, Alisha Hicks is with RANDY ORTON. Orton says that it was nice to see Dusty Rhodes backstage, giving his son a pep talk. But, he asks if Cody Rhodes should be taken advice from someone who had put their body on the line for all those years, and now can barely walk, yet alone stand. Orton says that it was touching to see Dusty give his son an ultimatum, but warns Cody that his father doesn't give a damn about his well being. Orton says that, when he was breaking into the business, his father told him that it was Randy's decision, and that whatever happened to him would be his own fault. So, Randy says that he's not wanting to win this match for his family's honor; he's not winning this match for his father. The only person he wants to win this match for, tonight, is himself.

In another area backstage, the Heavyweight Champion, AJ STYLES, is seen standing by himself without the title belt. He says that tonight is the final time that he and Desmond Wolfe will step into the ring together as long as either one of them holds the Heavyweight Title. Styles says he knows that there is a lot riding on this match, and that Desmond Wolfe had mad it very clear that he's waiting for Styles tonight. But, Styles says that Desmond Wolfe doesn't have the kind of pressure weighing down on his shoulders like AJ has. Styles says that he finally got a taste of what it's like to be on top again, and that whether or not Ric Flair or Chelsea are at ringside, he is going to stop at nothing to keep that title belt. Styles says that he doesn't need the help of those two to prove to Desmond Wolfe that he's better than he is; the Heavyweight Title that has been around his waist for the past month proves that… and it doesn't matter how he got it! Styles says that tonight, with the belt hanging down from the rafters, it'll be the closer Desmond Wolfe gets to the gold for a long, long time.

Strap Match
Cody Rhodes vs. Randy Orton

“The Viper” wasted no time tonight, striking Rhodes right from the start. Orton's shocking display of aggressive offense startled Rhodes, who was never fully able to retaliate. And, because of that, Orton had no true problem touching all four corners of the ring to pick up the victory.

Randy Orton defeated Cody Rhodes in 0:05:11.

Backstage, also standing by himself, DESMOND WOLFE looks into the camera. He laughs to himself and wonders what sort of lies Ric Flair had been feeding into AJ Style's mind. He wonders why Styles thinks he can beat Desmond Wolfe alone, when just last month, he had already thought of a scheme that would screw Wolfe out of the Heavyweight Title. Wolfe says that Styles is nothing but talk when he's put in front of a camera – or when he's flanked by the people that will help him cheat to victory – but, when he gets put into a situation where he has to fend for himself, he's unable to do it. Wolfe says that he proved that last month inside the Steel Cage – even though he came up on the short end of the stick – and, that he'll prove it again, when AJ is all alone, staring up at the Heavyweight Title for the last time. Wolfe says that he has been waiting for Styles to come to Omaha, because he knows that it's the one last night where he can get “The Phenomenal One” inside the ring alone, and make him regret ever getting on Wolfe's bad side.

A preview for the HWL's next pay-per-view event, “Hostile Takeover” is shown. The event will take place on September 26th, from Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!

HWL Heavyweight Title – Ladder Match
Desmond Wolfe vs. © AJ Styles

Anticipation filled the Qwest Center tonight as the fans awaited the third match-up between these two in their quest to see who was the better superstar. The fans were going to get a definite winner tonight, because of all managers were banned from ringside, and they would've been out of a job had they shown up at ringside. The title belt loomed over both competitors as the match started, and Wolfe and Styles traded advantages throughout the match, thanks in large part to the steel ladders in the ring and laying around ringside. Countless times, both men were just inches away from grabbing the title belt, only to have the ladder knocked out from under their feet, sending them crashing down to the canvas! Both men were visibly exhausted – and their bodies were taking a toll – at the end of the match, but somehow, Desmond Wolfe found the strength to connect with his second Jawbreaker Lariat. The finished knocked AJ outside the ring, and allowed Wolfe a slow, yet successful, trip to the top of the ladder where he grabbed the Heavyweight Title. As the bell rang, the crowd went crazy, and Wolfe celebrated on the top of the ladder.

Desmond Wolfe defeated AJ Styles in 0:11:18.
