Global Wrestling League

Recommended Posts



Steve Borden, better known to the wrestling world as "The Icon" Sting, has today announced a new wrestling venture.


The "Global Wrestling League", GWL, will open it's doors in the month of April, and will begin producing shows from June.


There is no word yet as to if a television deal has been struck for this new promotion.




In an update to our latest story surrounding Sting, Sting has revealed that his company will be an innovative promotion, breaking the mould of all current companies.


The promotion will be based out of Miami, Florida, and has already got several former top names involved to try and ensure the promotion is on the right track.


Former WWE names such as Ricky Steamboat, Billy Gunn and Val Venis are believed to be working backstage and helping to fill out the roster, while former TNA announcer Mike Tenay has already updated his twitter handle to reveal his involvement in the project, presumably from behind the announce desk.




Sting has revealed further details behind his recent announcement of GWL's formation.


The promotion will not feature a champion in the traditional wrestling style, his champion will be crowned at the end of the "season" as each wrestler will face off against each other. The GWL roster will stand at 20 wrestlers, meaning 19 weeks of 1vs1 match ups, with a winner crowned GWL Champion at the end of it all.


The first competitors to be revealed are:

Moldovan born wrestler, Alex Koslov

Former WWE Tag Team Champion, Brian Kendrick

Former WWE Tag Team Champion, Charlie Haas

Former NXT star and Alberto Del Rio's brother, Guillermo Rodríguez

CWC competitor, Kota Ibushi

Former NXT star and current PCW Tag Team Champion, Rampage Brown


More to be announced soon.

<p></p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><span style="font-size:24px;">The Final Points</span></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Not even a month has passed but the wrestling world is alive with buzz from Sting's new promotion announcement.</p><p> </p><p>

While many don't expect this league system to last long, others are cautiously optimistic that this could be the start of something new, something fresh.</p><p> </p><p>

With storylines and Hollywood segments gone, the focus will be kept on the in ring action, sure there'll be Main Event guys that will squash the curtain jerkers, but there'll be upsets along the way that's for sure!</p><p> </p><p>

Sting has today finalised all of the details needed, along with the final roster.</p><p> </p><p>


-All matches to be 1 vs 1, in the event of more than 2 people ending the season on equal points, those competitors will face off in one match against each other.</p><p>

-Matches to be won by pinfall, submission, count out, knock out, disqualification or referee stoppage.</p><p>

-A win results in 3 points, draw in 1 point, loss returns 0 points.</p><p>

- If a worker leaves or becomes injured, replacements will be drafted in, however they will start with half of their predecessors points, so to give them a sporting chance.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

Final Roster (Season 1):</p><p>

Alex Koslov</p><p>

Bestia 666</p><p>

Billy Gunn</p><p>

Brian Kendrick</p><p>

Carlito Colon</p><p>

Charlie Haas</p><p>

D'Lo Brown</p><p>

Guillermo Rodriguez</p><p>

Jesse Sorensen</p><p>

Kota Ibushi</p><p>



Marco Petrucci</p><p>

Marshall Von Erich</p><p>

Monoru Fujita</p><p>

Noam Dar</p><p>

Rampage Brown</p><p>

Ted DiBiase Jr</p><p>


Val Venis</p><p> </p><p>

================================================== =</p><p> </p><p>

Global Wrestling League have today confirmed their first ever TV show taping will take place the first Wednesday of June, to be aired every Saturday on YouTube.</p><p> </p><p>

While many are surprised that Sting has chosen to air his mould breaking promotion via the Internet, insiders are praising his business intellect in signing just a 9 month deal, possibly enabling him to sign a more lucrative deal at the end of the season, or alternatively pushing for a better timeslot mid way through Season 2 when the contract ends.</p>

The first round fixtures have been revealed for the opening YouTube show. Many are curious as to the standard of match that wrestlers can have in 6 minutes, however that is unfortunately all the time that is allocated while GWL is under contract to Youtube. A 60 minute show with 5 minutes of promos or videos does, leaving a full hour (thanks to YouTube's generous 5 minutes of overrun available) for 10 matches per week.


Sting is said to be seriously considering a new network if they can allow for a longer show, and is believed to have spoken to WWE executives over the potential of being used as a development league in order to get air time on the WWE Network.


The first round of fixtures are:

......... Alex Koslov v M.V.P .........

......... Billy Gunn v Minoru Fujita .........

......... Brian Kendrick v DLo Brown .........

......... Guillermo Rodriguez v U-Gene .........

......... Jesse Sorensen v Ted DiBiase Jr .........

......... Kota Ibushi v Bestia 666 .........

......... Marco Petrucci v Val Venis .........

......... Marshall Von Erich v Carlito Colon .........

......... Noam Dar v Charlie Haas .........

......... Rampage Brown v Low-Ki .........

The debut episode of GWL Weekly aired last night and was generally well received by viewers.


Sting welcomed us to GWL, he revealed the GWL title that will be presented to the season's winner after 19 weeks, or the 20th should there be a draw at the end. Sting thanked YouTube for offering the company a chance to showcase themselves, and wished the competitors the best.


First match in the tournament saw Low-Ki take on Rampage Brown. An average match that saw both men hit hard and work stiff, Brown's size advantage didn't seem to offer him much as Ki used his speed to dodge the big man's attack. Low-Ki won the match with a Warrior's Way. 3 points for Low-Ki


Charlie Haas made his return to the ring to take on CWC competitor and PCW alumni Noam Dar. In what was said to be a good technical match up between the two, Haas beat Dar with a Haas of Pain.


MVP came to the ring before his match to promise he would be Season 1's winner.


Alex Koslov then came out to take on one of GWL's favourites. In what could be classed as one of the matches of the night, MVP hit a Running Big Boot for the victory.


A Ted DiBiase Jr video was aired promoting his return to wrestling.


No ring rust it would seem for DiBiase Jr as he took on Jesse Sorensen, a good match ended with a Dream Street.


Following DiBiase's return came the worst match of the night, Bestia 666 took on Kota Ibushi in a match where they just did not click at all. Ibushi took the win with a Phoenix Splash.


Carlito cut a promo on famous wrestling families and how he, a Colon, will end the Von Erichs.


In a short but physical match, Marshall Von Erich scored several near falls, however Carlito took the win with a backstabber.


D'Lo Brown took on Brian Kendrick in a match that saw both men leave everything in the ring. Kendrick missed his Sliced Bread #2 allowing Brown to hit a Lo Down for a surprise win.


Billy Gunn took on Japanese star Minoru Fujita in a solid match up, Gunn took the win with a Cobra Clutch Slam.


Big cheers for U-Gene as he made his way to the ring, Guillermo Rodriguez had little reaction, unsure if people know who he is under his real name. A technical matchup that saw lots of submission attempts from both, Rodriquez tried to lock in an armbar similar to his brothers, however U-Gene made an audacious attempt at a reversal and turned it into a Sharpshooter for the win!


Val Venis made his way to the ring, soaking up the cheers on his return to wrestling, he promised the fans a victory and proceeded to taunt unknown Marco Petrucci on his way to the ring.


A good solid match up that saw a good mesh of styles, Venis helped bring Petrucci along. Venis stalled for too long on the top rope allowing Petrucci time to move and ended up hitting the Petrucci Driver for the shock win of the night!

<strong><span style="font-size:14px;">Week 2</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

Following last week's successful GWL debut, fans have been clamouring to attend this week's taping.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Guillermo Rodriguez (0) vs Marco Petrucci (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

The opening bout of the show saw Guillermo Rodriguez take on newcomer Marco Petrucci. Rodriguez came into this bout looking for his first points on the board, while Petrucci was looking to stake his claim as an early front runner..</p><p> </p><p>

Marco Petrucci once again shocked fans, beating Rodriguez following a Spinning Face Buster.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Marco Petrucci (6) defeated Guillermo Rodriguez (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Marco Petrucci grabbed a microphone and told the crowd that he will be winning the 1st season.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Charlie Haas (3) vs Rampage Brown (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Despite his size, Rampage is seen as an underdog in this competition due to his popularity in the US being far weaker than most other competitors, Haas used his confidence gained from his win last week to his advantage and took the big man to the mat several times. Rampage seemed to fall awkwardly towards the end of the match and Haas seemed to wrap it up quickly with a German Suplex.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Charlie Haas (6) defeated Rampage Brown (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Low-Ki (3) vs M.V.P (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Both men coming into this match off the backs of victory last week, another physical outing from Ki, but MVP managed to somehow outwit his opponent and hit a Playmaker for the win, and another 3 points!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>MVP (6) defeated Low-Ki (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Sting stood up from his announce table position to thank the fans for their support last week, and that he hopes last weeks success continues.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Noam Dar (0) vs Ted DiBiase Jr (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Scotland's Noam Dar may be a fan favourite, but that didn't help him last week, he took on league favourite Ted DiBiase Jr who was looking to increase his points total.</p><p> </p><p>

A solid match between the two, DiBiase Jr took the win following Dream Street.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Ted DiBiae Jr (6) defeated Noam Dar (0)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Alex Koslov (0) vs Bestia 666 (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Both men wanting to put points on their chart, but only 1 certain to get them, Bestia didn't perform the best once again and Koslov took advantage of his sloppy attacks, and took the win with a Red Scare II.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Alex Koslov (3) defeated Bestia 666 (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Jesse Sorensen came out and tld fans that he felt he needed to start picking up points early to give him the advantage over everyone else.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Carlito Colon (3) vs Jesse Sorensen (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

If that's what Jesse believed, he did very little to back it up, as Carlito dominated the match and took the victory and a further 3 points thanks to a Backstabber.</p><p>


Carlito Colon (6) defeated Jesse Sorensen (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>D'Lo Brown (3) vs Kota Ibushi (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Another match that had seen two men go at each other following victories last week, Ibusha had a strong fan following and used their energy to help fuel a high paced match up that D'Lo could not keep up with, D'Lo did however manage to scrape the victory after landing a sloppy Lo Down for another surprise victory.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>D'Lo Brown (6) defeated Kota Ibushi (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

GWL Head Booker Davide Simeone came out to introduce himself to the crowd .</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Marshall Von Erich (0) vs Minoru Fujita (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Another match where one competitor was certain to take points, Marshall Von Erich took on Japan's Minoru Fujita in a poor match.</p><p> </p><p>

Nothing seemed to click between these two and it made for poor showing for the fans in attendance, Von Erich won when the referee counted to 3, although many believe that wasa rushd count to end such a dire match.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Marshall Von Erich (3) defeated Minoru Fujita (0)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Billy Gunn (3) vs U-Gene (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Another top of the table clash, former WWE stars Billy Gunn and U-Gene took on each other. A solid match between the two that saw both men on the offence at different times, fans not sure who to cheer for. U-Gene hit a Fame Asser but only managed a 2 count, a comedy ending came after U-Gene asked Billy Gunn to show him how to do the Fame Asser properly, which he did, and Gunn took the victory.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Billy Gunn (6) defeated U-Gene (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Val Venis grabbed a microphone to explain how he lost to Petrucci last week, blaming ring rust.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bria Kendrick (0) vs Val Venis (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Kendrick came out of the blocks immediately in this match, giving Venis very little chance to put any offence in. Kendrick took the win with a Sliced Bread #2 for his frst points of the tournament!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Brian Kendrick (3) defeated Val Venis (0)</strong></p>

<strong><span style="font-size:14px;">Week 3</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jesse Sorensen (0) vs Minoru Fujita (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Both men entered the ring at the bottom of the pile on 0 points, yet neither showed why they deserved anything more. A poor match that saw Jesse win with a Lone Star Press.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jesse Sorensen (3) defeated Minoru Fujita (0)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Guillermo Rodrguez (0) vs Brian Kendrick (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Kendrick came into the this week on the back of his first victory last week, Rodriguez still searching, unfortunately for him he once again struggled against more experienced opposition and submitted to a Cobra Clutch.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Brian Kendrick (6) defeated Guillermo Rodriguez (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Marco Petrucci walked out to cut a promo basting about how he has the it factor and would be shocking the world by winning Season 1!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Marco Petrucci (6) vs Billy Gunn (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Billy Gunn ran to the ring to take on the youngster, he pushed Petrucci to the limits but couldn't get the better of him, ultimately falling to a Petrucci Driver.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Marco Petrucci (9) defeated Billy Gunn (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Carlito grabbed a microphone and promised to remain undefeated.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Noam Dar (0) vs Carlito Colon (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Dar once again put up a strong showing despite going over on his ankle early on, Carlito won the match with a Backstabber.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Carlito Colon (9) defeated Noam Dar (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Val Venis blames his loss last week on his boots, claiming he's bought new ones for this week.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Kota Ibushi (3) vs Val Venis (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Venis once again struggles with his opponent this week. Ibushi came out strong and looked to have the match won, Venis managed to roll through a Figure 4 attempt and made Ibushi tap to an Inverted Figure 4.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Val Venis (3) defeated Kota Ibushi (3)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Bestia 666 (0) vs Low-Ki (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Another poor showing from Bestia and he once again proved why he is likely to finish the league with no points. Ki picks up his second lot of 3 points after hitting a Warrior's Way.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Low-Ki (6) defeated Bestia 666 (0)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Alex Koslov (3) vs D'Lo Brown (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

D'Lo used his experience to remain undefeated, hitting a Lo Down in a very uneventful match.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>D'Lo Brown (9) defeated Alex Koslov (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Sting announced Rampage Brown's injury would keep him out of action for upto a month, he then revealed Wade Barrett as his replacement!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Marshall Von Erich (3) vs U-Gene (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Two men looking to move up the table and build on the 3 points they already have, U-Gene struggled to keep up with the younger Von Erich, but experience helped him pick up the win following a Sharpshooter.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>U-Gene (6) defeated Marshall Von Erich (3)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Charlie Haas (6) vs Ted DiBiase Jr (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Two undefeated met up in the semi main event, and put on quite the showing, a lot of false finishes eventually saw Ted Jr pick up the victory following a Dream Street.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Ted DiBiase Jr (9) defeated Charlie Haas (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Wade Barrett hypes his month in GWL.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>M.V.P (6) vs Wade Barrett (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

The main event saw two main event guys face off in a typical main event match. Barrett hits a lot of offence and looks to have the match won with Wasteland, but MVP slips out and lands a Playmaker for the win.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>MVP (9) defeated Wade Barrett (0)</strong></p>

Sam Shaw stepped in to take place of M.V.P who was unavailable this week due to working commitments, Bestia was his opponent, finally looking to get points on the table.</p><p> </p><p>

A short match that saw the stand in Shaw show how little fight Bestia has in him, Shaw took the win with a Breaking Point.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Alex Koslov (3) vs Val Venis (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Fresh off his first victory in GWL, Val Venis took on the younger more favourable Alex Koslov, Venis showed that you don't underestimate a former WWE mainstay however as he won the match with a Fisherman's Suplex.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Marco Petrucci (12) defeated Marshall Von Erich (3)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Billy Gunn (6) vs Brian Kendrick (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Both men looking to finish higher than each other, although neither are expected to pull up any trees in the competition, both can stil lcause damage to the higher ups. Kendrick looked to have the match won following a Superkick, however Billy Gunn managed to land a Cobra Clutch Slam for the 3 points.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Billy Gunn (9) defeated Brian Kendrick (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<p>Big news coming out of this weeks GWL taping saw Jesse Sorensen fired before the show started, Sorensen was warned about his behaviour after beating up Mike Tenay at last week's tapings, however he antagonised Carlito Colon into a fight this week, and it was deemed he would not be a worthy competitor for the debut season.</p><p> </p><p>

It has been announced that Wade Barrett will sign a full time contract to become a competitor, it is unknown as yet who will replace Rampage Brown for the remainder of his injury.</p><p> </p><p>

Brian Kendrick apparently turned up late for the shows tapings, no word on what form of punishment was taken, although it is understood upper brass are far from happy with him.</p><p> </p><p>

Rampage Brown v Bestia 666 </p><p>

Ted DiBiase Jr v Carlito Colon </p><p>

<strong><span style="font-size:14px;">Week 5</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

Davide Simeone welcomed us to the first tapings of July, he announces that Tyler Reks will be standing in for the injured Rampage Brown this week following Wade Barrett's full time GWL signing.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bestia 666 (0) vs Tyler Reks (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Reks made short work of the severely lacking in confidence Bestia, makes people wonder if he'll get any points this tournament! Reks took the win with a Burning Hammer.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Tyler Reks (1.5) (Rampage Brown 1.5) defeated bestia 666 (0) </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Charlie Haas (6) vs Minoru Fujita (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Another match that sees one of the bottom table loungers take on a middle of the pack contender. Haas locked in the Haas of Pain for a quick submission victory.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Charlie Haas (9) defeated Minoru Fujita (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

A video is shown hyping Carlito, D'Lo and Petrucci as the early front runners.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Low-Ki (6) vs Val Venis (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Another week that Val Venis looked more on game, as he managed to make Low-Ki look like a new starter, Ki couldn't manage to put up a good enough fight and Venis won with an Inverted Figure Four.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Val Venis (9) defeated Low-Ki (6)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Noam Dar (3) vs U-Gene (9)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Fresh off his first victory last week, Noam Dar looked to start a winning streak, and mayeb U-Gene underestimated the 23 year old, U-Gene struggled with his offence and Dar took advantage and took a shock victory after a Champagne Super-Kneebar.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Noam Dar (6) defeated U-Gene (9)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Ted DiBiase Jr grabbed a microphone an told everyone last week was a set back, but he would be the one to put Carlito out of the front runners.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Carlito Colon (12) vs Ted DiBiase Jr (9)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

A good solid match up that you would come to expect from two workers like these, Ted Jr threw everything at Carlito, but couldn't break him down until a failed Backstabber attempt was countered into a Dream Street.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Ted Di Biase Jr (12) defeated Carlito Colon (12)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Alex Koslov (3) vs Giullermo Rodriguez (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

A match not many were into, Rodriguez still struggling to show why he was chosen to be a part of this tournament, Koslov won by submission with a Red Scare II.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Alex Koslov (6) defeated Guillermo Rodriguez (0)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Brian Kendrick (6) vs Marshall Von Erich (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

The veteran could have been ecused for taking a loss in this match following the dominance that MVE had over this match, however experience proved vital as Kendrick won with a Cobra Clutch.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Brian Kendrick (9) defeated Marshall Von Erich (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Sting stood from behind his announce table to inform everyone of the company's success and thanked everyone for continuing to tune in.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Billy Gunn (9) vs Kota Ibushi (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Both men came into this match off the back of victories last week and high confidence was seen from both men as they went hammer and nail at each other. Ibushi had several near falls, as did Gunn late on, however it was the latter that ended up winning thanks to a Cobra Clutch Slam.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Billy Gunn (12) defeated Kota Ibushi (6)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

D'Lo Brown (12) vs M.V.P (10.5)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

The undefeated surprise D'Lo Brown took on another undefeated competitor in M.V.P. A good match up that the fans were really behind, not knowing who to cheer more for. Eventually M.V.P got the better of the veteran after surprising him with a Running Big Boot.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>M.V.P (13.5) defeated D'Lo Brown (12)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Wade Barrett walked out to a mass of cheers, the fans seem happy to see him becoming an actual weekly participant, Barrett promised to end Petrucci's surprise unbeaten run.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Marco Petrucci (12) vs Wade Barrett (1.5)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Wade Barrett and Marco Petrucci put on the match of the night, both men stopping at nothing to take the win, at one point it looked the ref was going to have to call the match a draw with both men outside the ring for a near count. Wade did as he promised though and beat the rookie with a Wasteland.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Wade Barrett (4.5) defeated Marco Petrucci (12)</strong></p>

<strong><span style="font-size:14px;">Week 6</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

Rampage Brown walked out to address the crowd, telling them all that he was back, and is ready for whatever the competition throws at him!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rampage Brown (3) vs Carlito Colon (12)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Carlito had obviously not read the script for this match and Rampage's triumphant return was not to be as he fell to Carlito's Backstabber.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Carlito Colon (15) defeated Rampage Brown (3)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Bestia 666 (0) vs D'Lo Brown (12)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Still to pick up any points, Bestia struggled against the veteran D'Lo who just toyed with the youngster, D'Lo picked up yet another victory thanks to a Lo Down.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>D'Lo Brown (15) defeated Bestia 666 (0)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Ted DiBiase Jr (12) vs Minoru Fujita (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Another poor showing from pointless Minoru Fujita, Ted DiBiase Jr showed why he is one of the early favourites for the competition, picking up the win thanks to a Dream Street.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Ted DiBiase (15) defeated Minoru Fujita (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Sting addressed the crowd and talked about how M.V.P's odds were getting stronger for a competition victory.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Charlie Haas (9) vs U-Gene (9)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Two evenly matched competitors showing how a tournament match should be, U-Gene hit Haas with everything but the kitchen sink! Haas managed to work his way out of a German Suplex attempt from U-Gene and reversed it into a German of his own for the win!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Charlie Haas (12) defetaed U-Gene (9)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Guillermo Rodriguez (0) vs Low-Ki (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

The final man still left on 0 points came up against the hard hitting Low-Ki, and again didn't pull out anything spectacular. Ki dominated the match before finishing it with a Warrior's Way.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Low-Ki (9) defeated Guillermo Rodriguez (0)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Marco Petrucci announced that he would be back on track this week following last week's stumble.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Marco Petrucci (12) vs Noam Dar (6)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Dar with all the momentum having came in off a victory last week, however Petrucci showed why many aren't surprised by how well he's doing in the competition, and won the match thanks to a Petrucci Lock.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Marco Petrucci (15) defeated Noam Dar (6)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Alex Koslov (6) vs Billy Gunn (12)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Koslov took on the veteran with double his points and showed he could hang with the older guys, many thought Koslov would take the victory in this one but Gunn managed to somehow hit his Legdrop Bulldog for the win.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Billy Gunn (15) defeated Alex Koslov (6)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Kota Ibushi (6) vs Marshall Von Erich (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Two of the lower end workers faced off in a hard to remember match that saw Ibushi win with a Sanding Shooting Star Press.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Kota Ibushi (9) defeated Marshall Von Erich (3)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Wade Barrett spoke to the crowd about how he was here to win, and his winning streak would start tonight!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Brian Kendrick (9) vs Wade Barrett (4.5)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Wade Barrett (7.5) defeated Brian Kendrick (9)</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

M.V.P (13.5) vs Val Venis (9)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>M.V.P (16.5) defeated Val Venis (9)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

M.V.P. immediately grabbed a microphone to tell everyone he was still "leading the pack"</p>
