July 6 2009 - Monday Night Anarchy - FedEx Forum - Memphis, TN

Greg Daniels and Chris Michaels welcome the at-home audience to Memphis, Tennessee and hope that everyone had a safe and fun Fourth of July weekend. They announce the two Women’s Triple Threat matches, along with the tag team Fatal Four Way that will be taking place later in the evening.

They are interrupted as “The Straight-Edge Superstar” CM Punk appears on-stage – in street clothes – to a huge roar of cheers from the crowd. Punk grabs a microphone inside the ring and says how happy he is that he was able to outlast the four other men that were in the Battle Royal last; and proud that he will be main eventing the first-ever HWL pay-per-view. But, he says that he’s not out here to talk about his accomplishment from last week… that he only wants one thing. Punk says he wants Matt Morgan to come down to the ring.

Matt Morgan wastes no time in coming down to the ring – in his ring attire – and standing across from Punk. Punk says he wants to know what Morgan’s problem is. Morgan forcefully grabs the microphone from Punk’s hand getting a loud roar of boos from the crowd. Morgan says that Punk is worried about the wrong thing. He wonders why Punk thinks the problem is with him, personally. Morgan says that he has the same problem he would have with any of the other former champions who won the battle royal last week. Morgan says that the only problem he has is that Punk stands in his way of becoming Heavyweight Champion. Morgan says that the only way that problem will go away is if he leaves “Rebellion” with the title. Punk then forcefully grabs the microphone from Morgan and says that he’s not going to budge for anyone. (Crowd pops) Punk then drops the microphone and the two men begin to brawl in the center of the ring. (Huge crowd pop) Punk knocks Morgan down with a stiff right hand. He picks up Morgan and whips him into the ropes, but Morgan grabs a hold of them and slides out of the ring. He walks up the ramp, holding the back of his head, as Punk begs him to get back into the ring. They stare at each other as “Anarchy” goes to commercials.

Alisha Hicks is shown backstage with Beer Money Inc., and asks for their opinions on who they’d like to face off against at “Rebellion” for the Tag Team Titles. Robert Roode starts off by saying that the challengers don’t matter for “Rebellion” because no matter who wins, they have to go through Beer Money to win the belts. He says that it’s guaranteed to be a fight, and to him, that’s all that really counts.

James Storm then says he agrees with Roode, but adds that he’s just a Tennessee Redneck (small crowd pop), and come “Rebellion” all he’ll be looking for is a “good ole fight”. He then says that he and Roode will be keeping a close eye on the match because they wanna find out who they’ll be facing… just like the “retards” in <st1:city><st1>Memphis</st1>.</st1:city>

Fatal Four Way Match

The four remaining teams hoping to get the chance to move on to “Rebellion” faced off tonight in what was the most exciting match of the evening, given the crowd’s response. For nearly 90 minutes, these four teams battled each other; never wanting to lose their chance at the HWL Tag Team Titles. It took just over an hour for the first elimination to happen when JTG eliminated Up In Smoke. But, quickly after that – either due to exhaustion or Cryme Tyme getting on a roll – the eliminations came faster. The match ended when Consequences Creed – frustrated with his team’s showing in the match – was disqualified after not releasing a chokehold before the five-count. After the match, the official pulls Creed off of Shad as Cryme Tyme leaves the ring to cheers from the fans. Inside the ring. Creed and Lethal speak to the referee.
