Godderz is the former star of CBS' Big Brother who has been in OVW via TNA. He's currently one half of the OVW Tag Team champions with Rob Terry. He did a heel bit on the mic where he made everyone spell PECTACULAR and ripped on NYC for being smelly. He said that he lived here for two years and got four colds because of how disgusting the people are here. He complained that he had to stand there for two hours during the autograph session and no one pays him enough to shake hands with these people. He named his arms "Continuously" and "Awesome."
Santana was billed as hailing from Tocula, Mexico, playing off Tito Santana obviously. He cleaned house on Godderz early, who retreated to the floor to cut the momentum off. He returned to the ring, where Santana maintained control. He nailed a clothesline and several dropkicks, sending Godderz back to the floor. He reatreated up the aisle. Back in the ring, Godderz tried to call for a time out to no avail. He was drilled with several kneelifts.

On the floor, Godderz worked him over, sending Santana into the rail. He choked out Santana and controlled him on the mat. He worked over Santana and mocked him. He pressed Santana over his head and slammed him down. Godderz stood over him, the locked him in an abdominal stretch. Santana fought back and finally hiptossed him over. Godderz cut him and covered him for the pin, although Santana had hit foot on the ropes.
Your winner, Jesse Godderz!
OK match. Santana worked hard as your old school white meat babyface. Godderz has a great look and charisma, so you can easily see why TNA signed him up. He's really rough around the edges but there is a world of potential there. It's going to take time.
