September 10, 2012 - Monday Night Anarchy - Ottawa, ON

Scotia Bank Place – Ottawa, ON
Attendance: 11,492 (60%)

A video package is played, showing highlights from Hostile Takeover last night. The video ends with Kurt Angle celebrating with the PCW Heavyweight Title to end the show.

“Headstrong” plays as the opening video package plays. Inside the arena, fireworks shoot from the stage, as Josh Daniels and Scott Michaels welcome everyone to Ottawa, 24 hours after every title in the HWL changed hands at Hostile Takeover. It is announced that, due to the ending of their match last night, Brutus Magnus and John Cena will face each other tonight, in a No Disqualification Match! And, in non-title action, newly crowned champion Kurt Angle will face Eddie Edwards.

Kurt Angle’s music plays, garnering “You suck!” chants from the audience. Angle walks down to the ring with the title belt around his waist. He stands in the ring, soaking in the jeers, before grabbing a microphone. Angle says that it’s true that the people in Canada are just not as smart as the people in America. They boo someone who, just last night, proved that he’s the best athlete in the HWL; not to mention, someone who will go down as one of the United States’ all-time sports heroes! Angle says that the fans were probably hoping that Randy Orton would come out here and talk about how he was able to retain; but, instead, Angle is out to say that he put his career on the line for the chance to challenge for the title last night, and he walked out of Hostile Takeover as champ. He demands the crowd’s respect, saying they don’t have the balls to stand up and fight for what they want in life!

Chris Hero’s music plays he walks down to the ring. The announcers make note that the PCW Television Champion isn’t carrying his title tonight. Hero enters the ring and stands across the ring from Angle with a microphone of his own. Hero says he’s the last person Angle expected to see in the ring tonight, and that’s what makes this moment all the better. Hero gives credit to Angle for his accomplishments during the Olympics; but he says that Angle won his gold medals 16 years ago! People have gotten tired of hearing about them. Angle calls the crowd stupid, again, for cheering Hero. Hero tells Angle they’re not stupid, they just have good taste! Angles looks ready to fight, but Hero tells him to hold off because Hero has an idea. Hero asks what would be better to headline Downfall on October 14th, then “Olympic Hero vs. Superhero”. Hero tells Angle to think about it before dropping his microphone and leaving the ring. Angle stares at Hero as Anarchy goes to commercials.

Commercial Break

Rating: * ½

A night after attacking Alex Riley with a chair at Hostile Takeover, Ted DiBiase took on Jesse Neal. During the match, it appeared that Neal landed awkwardly on his left knee, giving DiBiase the opening to hit the Dream Street for the victory. After the match, DiBiase focused on Neal’s injured knee before officials rushed to the ring and escorted DiBiase backstage. Neal was assisted to the back by the medical staff.

Commercial Break

Coming back from the break, Chris Hero is seen walking backstage, when he is confronted by Claudio Castagnoli. Claudio says that Hero might be biting off more than he can chew by thinking he can hang with Kurt Angle in the ring. Hero tells Claudio that it’s none of his concern who he can hang in the ring with. Claudio tells Hero that he doesn’t want Hero distracted in their match tonight before walking off.

Colt Cabana & Edwin Colon defeated Kazarian & Luke Gallows when Colon pinned Gallows after a flying dropkick in 12:16.
Rating: ***

Cabana and Colon got back on the right foot, after failing to advance past the semi-final round in the Tag Team Title tournament, against the team of Kazarian and Gallows. The victory will help Cabana and Colon move up the Tag Team rankings, and could possibly put them in line for a future title shot.

Commercial Break

Returning from the break, a video package is shown of Kaitlyn winning the Women’s Title at Hostile Takeover. After the video ends, Kaitlyn is introduced, joining the announcers at ringside.

Leva Bates pinned Nikki Bella after a piledriver in 6:33.
Rating: -1/2*

After the match, Leva rolled out of the ring and confronted Kaitlyn at the announce table. Leva tells Kaitlyn she’s not capable of holding the Women’s Title, and that Leva will be getting “her” title back at Downfall. Leva turns and leaves ringside as Anarchy goes to commercials.

Commercial Break

Returning from the break, X-Division Champion Kevin Steen walks down to the ring, greeted by a chorus of boos. Steen gets in the ring, placing the title over his shoulder and inciting the crowd to keep booing him. Steen laughs and says he doesn’t need the approval of people in Ottawa. Coming from Quebec, Steen says that it’s clear that Quebecers are much better than anyone from Ontario. Just like he proved, last night, that he was better than Christopher Daniels. Steen says that Daniels talked about righting his wrongs, and the X-Division Title being Daniels’ salvation. Steen says that he took away Daniels’ salvation, and put him through hell in order to do it. Steen tells Daniels to go find another “savior”, so that Steen can move onto other things. Steen says he wants to wipe his hands of Daniels, and keep moving forward as X-Division Champion. He says that winning the title doesn’t seem enough for most people to give Steen the respect he deserves. So, he’s going to take over the X Division, and make people respect him.

This brings out Alex Riley, who comes out to the stage, interrupting Steen. Riley says that there are a number of athletes in the X Division that could very well take the title away from Steen. Riley says they’re confident and ready; all they need is the chance to prove themselves. Steen tells Riley that he sounds like an infomercial for the guys who are wanting to do the same thing Riley is. Steen says he didn’t care what chance anyone else got; he was only worried about what chances he got. Riley tells Steen that he can pay respect to the rest of the roster, but he’s not out here to speak for them; he’s out to speak for himself. Riley calls himself the best thing going in the X Division currently, and says that he is out here to challenge Steen to an X-Division Title Match at Downfall. Steen asks Riley if he’s serious, before accepting the challenge. Anarchy goes to commercials as both men stare down each other across the arena.

Commercial Break

A recap of the opening segment, between Chris Hero and Kurt Angle is shown. It is announced that they will face each other, on October 14th, at Downfall.

Rating: *** ½

Last night, at Hostile Takeover, Castagnoli and Corino played a big part in The Knockouts not walking away with the Tag Team Titles. Because of their interference, Peter Bradshaw signed tonight’s match. Chris Hero, who earlier tonight secured his spot as challenger to the Heavyweight Title, found himself having to deal with another distraction outside the ring: Kurt Angle. Angle took Hero out of the match with a chair-shot outside the ring, and Otunga fell victim to the numbers game.

Commercial Break

No-DQ Match

Rating: ¾

A night after John Cena used a steel chair to put an end to their match at Hostile Takeover, a steel chair would be the ultimate end for Cena. While outside the ring, Magnus cracked a chair of Cena’s head, opening up a gash on Cena’s head. The chair-shot led to Magnus pinning Cena and finally getting a pinfall victory after a lengthy feud.

Commercial Break
