August 3, 2009 - Monday Night Anarchy - Wichita, KS

Kansas Coliseum, Wichita, Kansas
G4 Network

"Anarchy" comes on the air showing the closing moments of last week's main event between AJ Styles and Randy Orton. Then, Greg Daniels and Chris Michaels welcome everyone to Wichita, Kansas, just three weeks away from "Turning Point".

HWL Commissioner, Tim Jacobs, comes out to the ring with a microphone and says that he has an announcement that will finally determine what is going to happen at "Turning Point" on August 23. He says he wants both Randy Orton and AJ Styles to join him in the ring…

"I Am" begins to play as the crowd in the Kansas Coliseum go crazy! AJ Styles appears, in street clothes, and makes his way to the ring, where he shakes Jacobs's hand. He and the commissioner wait for Randy Orton to join them…

After a long pause, "Voices" begins to play, and Randy Orton - also in street clothes - appears on-stage to a tremendous roar of boos from the crowd. He pays no attention to the jeers as he enters the ring and gets inches away from Styles, causing the crowd to boo louder. Jacobs gets between the two of them and tells Orton to "cut the bullshit". He says that Orton can be the hard-ass all he wants… but, Jacobs says that as Commissioner, he's the one who makes the rules. (Huge crowd pop)

Jacobs says that he wants there to be a definite Number One Contender; he wants to find out who the best man is to take on Matt Morgan for the Heavyweight Title. He admits that last week didn't end the way he had wanted it: with no absolute winner. But, he says that he has devised a plan that will give him - and the crowd - a clear winner of the #1 Contender battle. He says that the plan is to have both men face off against the Heavyweight Champion over the next two weeks in non-title matches. Whoever is able to win his match against Matt Morgan, when then go on to face him, for the title, at "Turning Point". He then says that if neither of them are able to beat the champion, then a tournament will be held in two weeks to determine a new number one contender. Jacobs ends the announcement by saying that, tonight, Randy Orton will have the chance to earn himself a title match on August 23.

Moments later, Kory Chavis - of the Dark City Fight Club - came down to the ring as Punk's replacement. Black made quick work of Chavis, in a match that surely wouldn't have ended as fast with his scheduled opponent. Rumors were circling around the backstage area as to what happened to CM Punk…

MARYSE TALKS ABOUT WOMEN'S TITLE
Coming back from commercials, Alisha Hicks is seen backstage with the newest "group" in the HWL - Angelina Love and Maryse.
