Which Jeff Jarrett?

He speaks about the format of the Crockett Cup with you having to win four matches in two nights.

One-Time Champ

Joe Galli says that PJ Hawx will continue on the tournament in a handicap match, as Kyle Davis introduces NWA World Women’s Champion Kamille to the podium. Davis mentions how tomorrow night Kamille can lose the title tomorrow against Kylie Rae and Chelsea Green, without being involved in the pinfall. Kamille says she respects Rae but wonders how she went from being in a tag team to getting a title shot. Kamille says she will bring Green some ChapStick tomorrow as her lips must be crusty as hell from all the ass she’s been kissing. Kamille says Matt Cardona can be making his demands to ‘No Backbone Billy’, but Billy knows Kamille can only be beaten in a triple threat match without being pinned. Kamille says at the end of the day she will be a ‘one-time champ’, because she will never lose the title and she can still guarantee the NWA World Women’s Champion. Davis asks what she thinks her fiancée Thom Latimer’s chances will be in the Crockett Cup, as she says he will go all the way to the end.

Meanie comes out with a toothpick and does the Razor Ramon strut and poses. Dango and Stevens officially start the match as Stevens taunts the crowd by dancing.

Tyrus gets on the mic again and says to Gold Rushhh that it’s not time for fun and games and to take their opponents seriously and it’s time to separate the champions from the chumps.

Hands Raised Twice

Kyle Davis invites La Rebelion to the podium and says it hasn’t been easy for them and asks how they are feeling about their odds of winning The Crockett Cup. Bestia 666 speaks in Spanish and Mecha Wolf translates it as they will be the next Crockett Cup winners. These tag teams they are facing are good, but the fact of the matter is that La Rebelion walked out with their hands raised twice tonight and they will come home to Tijuana, Mexico with the cup and they will fill it up with the greatest Tequila they can find and have a party and not invite anyone here tonight. They put tag team wrestling on the match, and that’s why the Briscoes and the other tag teams are here to face them. They again say they will walk out as the Crockett Cup winners.

The last twenty minutes are Joe Galli and William Patrick Corgan running down what happened tonight as well as tomorrow’s card.
