Monday Night Anarchy
October 4, 2010
Spokane Arena – Spokane, Washington
(Attendance: 5,324)

Video footage from last week is shown, highlighting the victories of The British Invasion and Kane, to become number one contenders for the Tag Team and Heavyweight Titles, respectively.

Fireworks explode inside the arena, as Josh Daniels and Scott Michaels welcome everyone to Monday Night Anarchy, back in the United States, just 27 days away from “Downfall”. They announce, that tonight, The Usos will take on The Hart Dynasty in a non-title match; and that Desmond Wolfe will be in action, taking on Montel Vontavious Porter in tonight's main event.

Heavyweight Champion, Desmond Wolfe, came out to the ring and grabbed a microphone. Wolfe said that he wasn't out to keep talking about his history with Kane, or that that in their previous two meetings Wolfe had gone two-and-oh. Wolfe said that he wanted to call Kane out to the ring to show that he was the bigger man. Once Kane came out to the ring, Wolfe reminded everyone in Spokane of what Kane was able to do inside a wrestling ring. Wolfe said that, on multiple occasions, he had been sent through tables, and felt the Choke Slam From Hell. But, Wolfe said that Kane always seemed to come up short when it really mattered. Turning to look at Kane, Wolfe told Kane that he had one more shot at the Heavyweight Title – at “Downfall” - and to make sure he didn't screw it up. Wolfe turned to leave the ring, as Kane stared in his direction.

Daffney vs. Velvet Sky

The action started off tonight with a match between two “Vixens” that have grown to know one another very well inside the ring. Velvet Sky was looking to further herself up the championship contendership ladder, proving that she is the better of the The Beautiful People, where as Daffney was trying to not only stop Velvet's progress, but to start her own trail to the Women's Title. But, on this night, Velvet's Beauty Mark was too much for the “Dark Princess”, as Sky picked up the 1-2-3. After the match, Angelina Love was seen on-stage, applauding the victory, as Velvet made her way up the ramp. The two “Vixens” stared at each other before Velvet continued through the curtains. Josh Daniels and Scott Michaels speculated as to how the situation was going to end…

Velvet Sky pinned Daffney with the Beauty Mark in 0:11:11.

Backstage, Jimmy and Jey Uso – and Tamina – were seen laughing. Jey Uso asked if either of them saw the look on Randy Orton's face after they were eliminated from the Triple Threat Match last night. The three laughed again, under Orton appeared behind them. Orton asked if they really thought it was funny, because The Usos weren't getting a tag team title match at “Downfall” either. Orton said that, since neither team were getting a tag team title match, there shouldn't be any reason why they Orton and Alex Shelley don't smack the smiles of The Uso's faces at “Downfall”. Jimmy and Jey agreed, before attacking Orton, and leaving him on the ground, riving in pain.

Steve Corino vs. CM Punk

Steve Corino came into this match, looking to further his winning ways, after picking up a huge victory over Matt Morgan last week. He stepped into the ring with Punk, who hadn't seen much ring time in the past month, and it showed. Punk had trouble staging any sort of offense, and Corino took advantage of Punk's mistakes at every turn. At the end of the match, Punk had Corino reeling outside the ring, and attempted a baseball slide that Corino was able to move out of the way of. Punk hit the concrete hard, and Corino rolled under the bottom rope as the referee finished the 10-count. After the match, Steve Corino stared down at Punk – on the outside of the ring – as “Anarchy” went to commercials.

Steve Corino defeated CM Punk by countout in 0:07:04.

Commercial Break

“Woooo!” Ric Flair, AJ Styles, Mr. Anderson, and Chelsea made their way down to the ring as “Anarchy” returned. The crowd booed as Anderson grabbed a microphone and looked to his friends for support. After some encouragement, Anderson said that he had spent a lot of time in the back, away from the ring, thinking about the way his career had gone over the past few months. Anderson said that he hadn't accomplished things that he thought he could, and that now things were going to be different. Anderson said that he had been getting some guidance from the former Heavyweight Champions he calls “friends”, and that they both told him that he needed to take things he wanted, instead of waiting for the opportunity to come to him. Anderson said that was exactly why he was in the ring, and said that it was time to prove himself worthy again of holding a title in the HWL. Anderson called out X-Division Champion, D'Angelo Dinero before challenging him to a match at “Downfall”. Dinero came down to the ring, and told Anderson that he's crazy; that he wasn't more special than the others who had to work for their shots at his title. Dinero said the only way he'd take Anderson's challenge seriously, is if Anderson could prove himself worthy in the ring. Dinero left the ring as Ric Flair and AJ Styles surrounded Anderson, and “Anarchy” went to commercials.

Non-Title Match
The Usos (w/Tamina) vs. © The Hart Dynasty (w/Natalya)

A week after coming so close to challenging for the Tag Team Titles at Downfall, The Usos got their chance to go two-on-two with the Tag Team Champions tonight. The match got off to an interesting start, when both Tamina and Natalya jumped onto the apron in support of their respective teams. Once they were cleared away from ringside, The Usos showed that, after learning the ropes in the HWL, they were quite qualified to hang with the champs. But, The Hart Dynasty have held the titles for a while now, and they showed that their tenacity can get them through nearly anything, as they fought back to hit the Springboard Hart Attack to pick up the victory.

The Hart Dynasty (David Hart Smith & Tyson Kidd) defeated The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) when T. Kidd pinned Jey after the springboard Hart Attack in 0:17:34.

A preview for Tuesday Night Rampage is shown, announcing that the Heavyweight and Tag Team Titles will be on the line, in special stipulation matches, live tomorrow night!

Yoshi Tatsu vs. Mr. Anderson

These two names wouldn't have come up in the same conversation, when talking about athletes wanting to prove themselves, but that's exactly the position Tatsu and Anderson have found themselves in over the past few weeks. Yoshi has been struggling with his aggression inside the ring, and wanting to no longer depend on Kaz's assistance. And, tonight, Mr. Anderson made his first apperance on Anarchy in nearly a month, wanting to prove himself a worthy contender for the X-Division Title. Tonight, though, Anderson got help from Yoshi, who finally let all the pressure get to him, as he attacked the referee, getting himself disqualified, and awarding the match to Anderson. After the match, Anderson caught Yoshi by surprise, and connected with the Mic Check before leaving the ring.

Mr. Anderson defeated Yoshi Tatsu by disqualification in 0:12:28.

Non-Title Match
Montel Vontavious Porter vs. © Desmond Wolfe

The night started off and ended in familiar fashion for the Heavyweight Champion tonight, as Desmond Wolfe confronted Kane – who he knows all too well – and stepped into the ring with Porter, who Wolfe has shared many battles with over the past few months. These two know each other very well inside the ring, and they showed it tonight, with back-and-forth action and numerous counters; neither of them allowed their opponent to connect with their respective finishers! Wolfe picked up the victory after hitting Porter with an errant elbow, right in the temple, that stunned Porter long enough for the Champ to pick up the win. After the match, the lights in the arena went out, and when they returned, Kane stood over Wolfe's prone body in the center of the ring!

Desmond Wolfe defeated Montel Vontavious Porter via pinfall in 0:11:58.
