8/14 THIS DAY IN HISTORY: ALBERTO DEL RIO CASHES IN, ECW TAPES THEIR FIRST NATIONAL TV SHOWS AND THEN DOESN'T USE THEM AND MORE

August 14th

On this day in history in ....

1999 - Balls Mahoney & Spike Dudley defeat Buh Buh Ray & D-Von Dudley in Toledo, Ohio to win back the ECW World Tag Team Championship only one day after losing them to the Dudleys in Cleveland. This ended Buh Buh Ray & D-Von's seventh ECW Tag Title reign. Originally taped for ECW's debut show on TNN, it was later decided to have an "ECW history" show for the first episode, and then tape an episode in New York. So, this match was instead included on the first ECW DVD, Extreme Evolution. The finish of the wild brawl saw Spike Dudley powerbombed off the ring apron through two tables that were set on fire by Buh Buh Ray, then D-Von accidentally hit Buh Buh with a chairshot, allowing Balls to deliver the Nutcracker Suite on D-Von for the pin.

Other results from the taped but never seen taping saw:

Rhino pinned Prodigy
Uganda defeated the Spanish Angel
Yoshihiro Tajiri defeated Super Crazy
Little Guido defeated Nova
Sabu & Jerry Lynn defeated ECW TV Champion Rob Van Dam & Justin Credible when Sabu pinned Credible
Jazz pinned Steve Corino
Vito Lograsso defeated Simon Diamond

1999 - WCW held their "Road Wild" Pay-per-view event at the Sturgis motorcycle rally in Sturgis, South Dakota. This would be the last Road Wild PPV ever held. It should be noted that because these events were held in the middle of the motorcycle rally, they never had any tickets sold and drew no live gate, thus only made money was off of the PPV buyrate. Here are the results:
- Rey Mysterio Jr., Billy Kidman & Eddie Guerrero defeated Vampiro & The Insane Clown Posse when Kidman pinned Shaggy Too Dope with a shooting star press.
- Harlem Heat defeated Kanyon & Bam Bam Bigelow to win the WCW World Tag Team Title when Bigelow accidentally collided with Dallas Page, who was trying to interfere, and Booker T hit a missile dropkick, followed by Stevie Ray getting the pin.
- Perry Saturn, Shane Douglas & Dean Malenko defeated Barry Windham, Curt Hennig & Bobby Duncum, Jr. when Saturn pinned Duncum with a Death Valley Driver.
- Buff Bagwell defeated Ernest Miller after whipping Miller into Sonny Onno, who was about to interfere.
- WCW United States Champion Chris Benoit defeated Diamond Dallas Page with a top rope headbutt in a no disqualification match.
- Sid Vicious defeated Sting with a chokeslam.
- Bill Goldberg defeated Rick Steiner with a jackhammer.
- Randy Savage defeated Dennis Rodman after hitting him with a chain.
- WCW World Champion Hulk Hogan defeated Kevin Nash in a Retirement match with a legdrop. Shockingly, Nash's retirement wouldn't last and he'd be back in October of 1999.

2000 - The Monday Night Wars continued, but it was a one-sided battle, as WWF Raw earned a 5.9 rating with a show headlined by The Undertaker beating Chris Benoit via DQ, Chris Jericho defeating Intercontinental Champion Val Venis by DQ and Kurt Angle, Shane McMahon & Triple H battling The Dudley Boys & The Rock to a no contest. WCW Nitro countered with only a 2.4 for a show headlined by Sting defeating Vampiro, The Great Muta and The Demon in a four corners match and Rey Mysterio & Juventud Guerrera winning the WCW World Tag Team Championship from Vampiro & The Great Muta. Also on Nitro, Lance Storm, who held three titles at the time, defeated Mike Awesome to keep the U.S. Title, then gave the Cruiserweight Title to Elix Skipper and gave the Hardcore Title to Carl Oulette. Oulette then lost the Hardcore Title to Norman Smiley.

2007 - The Associated Press reported that an autopsy failed to conclusively prove what caused the death of former WWF and WCW star Bryan "Crush" Adams.

2007 - The United States Congress, in the wake of the Chris Benoit tragedy, issued letters to WWE, TNA and The NWA seeking information on the business and drug use within.  A copy of the letter sent to TNA was leaked.  The complete letter sent to TNA President Dixie Carter yesterday by Congress reads as follows:


Ms. Dixie Carter
President
Total Nonstop Action Wrestling
209 10th Avenue South, Suite 302
Nashville , Tennessee 37203

Dear Ms. Carter:

We are writing to request information regarding the response of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) to allegations of pervasive use of steroids and other drugs by professional wrestlers. The tragic death of Mr. Chris Benoit and his family has focused attention on the seriousness of the problem. Illegal steroid use in professional sports has gained plenty of attention, but the record suggests that the problem is most pervasive and deadly in pro wrestling, an unregulated form of entertainment that is watched on TV and in arenas by an estimated 20 million fans a week, including children. See e.g., attached USA TODAY investigative report, "High death rate lingers behind fun facade of pro wrestling."

As Chairman and Ranking Member, respectively, of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, the subcommittee with jurisdiction over sports-related matters, we are monitoring this situation very closely. We request a briefing on this matter at the earliest possible time We also are considering a hearing on this matter, and whether there is a need for Federal regulation to protect the health and safety of the wrestlers. In the 109 th Congress, the Subcommittee held a hearing on "Steroids in Sports: Cheating the System and Gambling Your Health," and reported legislation, H.R. 1862, the Drug Free Sports Act

World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. implemented a Talent Wellness Program in February 2006. Please advise the Subcommittee by close of business on August 28, 2007, whether TNA has adopted a similar program. If so, please provide the Subcommittee with a copy of your program, as well as any other relevant records detailing the specifics of the program as well as TNA' s implementation and interpretation thereof. Records include memoranda, correspondence, and electronic communications. Please also describe any and all actions that TNA has taken - either within or outside any such program - to detect and prevent steroid abuse. Information, including the aggregate number of random tests conducted in each month this year, would assist the Subcommittee in its review, and we request that you provide that information, as well. We are sending similar information requests to other wrestling leagues.

Should you wish to discuss this matter further, please do not hesitate to contact us, or have your staff contact Christian Tomatsu Fjeld or Consuela Washington with the Majority Committee staff at (202) 225-2927 or Brian McCullough or Will Carty with the Minority Committee staff at (202) 225-3641.

Sincerely,

Bobby L. Rush
Chairman
Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection

2007 - WWE broadcast ECW on SyFy.  Buck Woodward filed the following TV report:

ECW on SciFi for August 14th opened with a recap of last night's Raw, where Vince McMahon began his search for his illegitimate child, who according to his daughter Stephanie, is a WWE superstar.

Live, Jonathan Coachman was in the ring, saying he was going to be continuing the investigation for Mr. McMahon on Raw tonight.  Coach then introduced the new General Manager of ECW, "by order of Mr. McMahon", Armando Alejandro Estrada. Armando said he hoped Mr. McMahon took a lot of trips to Cuba in the 70's (in other words, he wants to be Vince's kid).  Armando then said he would conduct the ECW Championship contract signing for the match at Summerslam.  He then brought out ECW Champion John Morrison and CM Punk.

They sat at the table for the signing, and Morrison said sitting at the table was, for Punk, as close as he would get to "Earthly Paradise".  Morrison signed the contract.  Punk was about to sign, when Morrison stopped him. Morrison said Punk couldn't last 15 minutes with him last week.  Punk responded that he didn't last 15 minutes because he beat him in less than 15 minutes.  Morrison started putting himself over and said Punk couldn't handle the pressure of being the ECW champion.  Punk told him to shut up, and said Morrison talks way too much.  Punk said none of what he says makes sense.  Punk said he doesn't have fancy clothes or catchphrases, he also noted he doesn't wear fur coats in August, but he will be wearing the ECW Champions.  Punk signed the contract, and the two argued. 

Armando said that it is good they are both fired up, because they both have matches tonight.  Armando said Morrison will face The Boogeyman.  Armando then said CM Punk's match would be next, and he would face Big Daddy V.  Morrison smiled and they had a staredown as they went to break.

CM Punk vs. Big Daddy V, with Matt Striker.

They locked up, and V shoved Punk to the mat.  Punk went for a waistlock, but V backed him into a corner repeatedly, then threw him down.  V chopped Punk in a corner, then headbutted Punk repeatedly.  Punk slumped in a corner and V hit some kicks.  V missed a short arm clothesline, and Punk hit two jumping knees in the corner.  V held onto Punk on the second knee and powerbombed Punk.  V gave Punk a press slam, dropping Punk face first to the mat, then pounding him with a hammerfist.  V pushed Punk against the ropes and hit a chop, then whipped him into the ropes and hit a spinning heel kick. Punk fell to the floor.  Punk got on the apron and V shoulderblocked him off and into the announce table at ringside. Punk grabbed his ribs in pain, and started coughing.  He reached for the ring, but couldn't get up, and was counted out at the four minute mark.

Winner via countout: Big Daddy V.

Post-match, Big Daddy V stood in the ring triumphant, while Punk was checked on by the referee at ringside.  They showed numerous replays of Punk going into the announce table.

A video package on the Boogeyman was shown.

A commercial hyping Evander Holyfield vs. Matt Hardy in a boxing match on Saturday Night's Main Event was shown.

Backstage, Tommy Dreamer told Armando that he wanted a title match with the winner of the Morrison-Punk match at Summerslam.  Armando said he thinks Dreamer is lazy.  Armando said Dreamer has 60 seconds to get to the ring, and if he doesn't get there, he forfeits his match and proves that he is lazy.  After realizing he was serious, Dreamer headed to the ring.  Nunzio and Stevie Richards both tried to stop Dreamer to talk as he headed down the hallway, but Dreamer passed them by, and also walked by Extreme Expose as they were dancing in front of the Miz.  Dreamer was distracted by Expose, and ran into a catering cart.  Dreamer tripped and fell, but still stumbled out the entrance and made it to the ring with 17 seconds left on the clock... only to see that Big Daddy V was still in the ring.

Tommy Dreamer vs. Big Daddy V.

Dreamer threw some right hands, but was given a Samoan Drop by V.  V then stood on Dreamer's back.  V stood Dreamer up and hit two chops, then bounced off the ropes and crushed him with an avalanche.  Big Daddy V hit a spinning sidewalk slam, then dropped an elbow for the pin in under a minute.

Winner: Big Daddy V.

The showed a clip of how Kelly Kelly helped Balls Mahoney get up off the floor last week.

Backstage, Balls Mahoney came up to Kelly and started to talk about a restaurant at Mohegan Sun.  Miz walked in with the rest of Extreme Expose.  Miz joked that Balls has a crush.  Miz said Kelly doesn't like guys like Balls, she likes guys like him, saying he was a chick magnet.  Balls was getting angry, and Layla said to Miz that they have plans.  Miz and the girls walked off, and Miz told Kelly to come along.  Kelly followed them, despite Balls saying her name as she walked away.  Balls turned towards the camera, and you could see in the background that Kelly was looking back at Balls.  By the time Balls turned back around, Kelly was already walking off again.

They showed a clip of Kevin Thorn attacking Stevie Richards backstage last week.

Stevie Richards vs. Kevin Thorn.

Stevie battled back with a double leg takedown and some punches.  Richards hit a knee to the gut, but Thorn nailed him with a clothesline and a series of punches.  Thorn rammed Richards into a corner, then whipped him hard into the opposite corner.  Thorn hit a series of knees to the head, but Richards got back up and threw some forearms, only to get beaten down again.  Thorn slammed Richards, then drove a pair of knees into his back.  Thorn dove into a clothesline on Richards, who was in a seated position, and applied a chinlock. Richards fought to his feet, but Thorn decked him with a short arm clothesline.  Thorn dragged him up and hit another one. Thorn pulled him up again and hit a third clothesline.  Thorn covered, but Richards kicked out at two.  Richards got to his feet and hit a forearm, then a kick to the leg, then a kick to the face.  Richards hit a double knee driver to the chest for a two count, then a sunset flip for another two, but then Thorn caught him with a sitdown spinebuster for the three count at the four minute mark.

Post-match, Thorn kept hitting Richards.  Thorn lifted Richards for a Crucifix Bomb, and the referee warned him not to do it.  Thorn delivered the move anyway, so the referee reversed the decision and disqualified Thorn.  Thorn slumped in the corner, then walked off, obviously enraged that he cost himself the match.  Thorn is now 0-3 against Richards.

Winner via disqualification: Stevie Richards.

Backstage, Elijah Burke was telling Jonathan Coachman that his mother used to travel a lot, and they always followed WWE around the country.  Burke noted that people have said he has Vince McMahon's smile.

Joey Styles and Tazz went over the Summerslam lineup, then a video package on John Morrison vs. CM Punk was shown.

ECW Champion John Morrison vs. The Boogeyman.

Morrison made his entrance, then they went to commercial.  When they got back from break, they announced John Morrison & Big Daddy V vs. CM Punk & The Boogeyman for Saturday Night's Main Event.

Boogeyman immediately took Morrison down with a fireman's carry takedown, then leapfrogged him as he was on his knees.  Boogeyman whipped Morrison in a corner, then the opposite corner and hit an avalanche.  Boogeyman hit a clothesline, then slammed Morrison and hit a big splash for a two count. Boogey whipped Morrison into the ropes, but Morrison put the brakes on.  Morrison caught a charging Boogeyman with a double boot to the face, then flipped over the top rope to the apron.  Morrison went for a springboard dropkick, but Boogeyman swatted it away.  Boogeyman went to the top rope, but Morrison jumped up and kicked Boogeyman to the floor. Morrison brought Boogeyman back in the ring for a two count, then slid into a clothesline on Boogey as he was in a seated position.

Morrison applied an overhead wristlock, but Boogeyman punched out of it.  Boogeyman hit a clothesline, then slammed Morrison and hit a legdrop for a two count. Morrison hit a chop to the throat, then kicked Boogey in the gut.  Morrison kept stomping Boogey in the gut, then went to the second rope for the twisting moonsault, but missed by a mile.  Boogey didn't even roll out of the way, Morrison just totally overshot it.  Boogey slammed Morrison twice, but missed a charge in the corner.  Morrison went for a springboard kick, slipping on the rope, but still nailed the kick for a two count. Morrison tried another cover, but Boogey held the bottom rope.  Morrison tried to pull Boogey into the ring, but Boogey kept holding the bottom rope.  Morrison threw some punches, while Boogey was still on the ropes, so the referee warned Morrison.  Morrison shoved the referee for the DQ at the seven minute mark.

Winner via DQ: The Boogeyman.

Morrison argued with the referee, and Boogeyman got back up.  Boogeyman hit Morrison with the double handed chokeslam, then went for his worms.  He put a handful in his mouth, but Morrison got out of the ring before Boogey could spit them on Morrision. Morrison stared at Boogey from the aisle as the show ended and they plugged the tag match on Saturday Night's Main Event.

2008 - Hulk and Linda Hogan came to an agreement earlier regarding how the couple will temporarily split their assets in their divorce, ending a messy court battle.  In short, the agreement decreed:

*Linda will receive $40,000 a month in temporary alimony over the next year.

*Hulk will take $500,000 out of their combined assets.

*Hulk will be allowed to withdraw up to $400,000 to cover legal costs involved in Nick Hogan's criminal defense.

We are live on tape from San Jose, California and your announcers are Matt ‘Camp Crystal Lake’ Striker and Todd ‘Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon’ Grisham.

Vickie Guerrero is in the ring and she is dressed like she is getting ready to go on vacation. She gives us a few ‘Excuse Mes’ and then brings out the new Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler is also dressed for a day at the beach. We see highlights from last week’s victory by Dolph Ziggler over Kofi Kingston. Vickie says that Dolph is more electrifying that the Rock, has more heart than Bret, and is sexier than Shawn Michaels. Vickie says that he is all hers. He is her boyfriend.

Dolph takes the mic and he says that there is one very special person that he has to thank because without this person he would not be the Universe’s Intercontinental Champion. Without this person’s support, advice, and back rubs; he would not be the total package that everyone sees before them tonight. Dolph says this person is the official consultant to Smackdown . . . Vickie Guerrero.

Vickie tells Dolph that she deserves it. She tells Dolph that she can’t wait to get out of this disgusting city and board their private plane and celebrate in Tahiti. The fans do not appreciate Vickie and Dolph’s travel plans so she gives us another ‘excuse me’. Vickie says that she will make this so romantic that Dolph won’t have to lift a finger.

The good times are interrupted by the former Intercontinental Champion, Kofi Kingston, who takes Ziggler down and punches him. Vickie leaves the ring and Kofi with a forearm to Ziggler and Dolph goes to the floor. Kofi with a suicide dive onto Dolph while Vickie calls for referees to come down to separate the two men.

Teddy Long comes out and says that is enough. Teddy tells Vickie and Dolph that he is not going to let things go down like this. He tells Vickie and Dolph that they will have to cancel their vacation plans because Dolph will have to defend his title against Kofi Kingston. He also tells Dolph that he will face Rey Mysterio tonight.

Vickie calls Teddy’s match and raises it by saying that Kofi will also be in action and Kofi will have to face Kane.

Teddy says that Vickie is just a consultant so he is the man with the power. He tells Kofi that he doesn’t have to wrestle Kane. Kofi says that he isn’t a coward and he will face Kane. Kofi tells Teddy that he wants this match to be next.

We go to a video package of Kane winning at Money in the Bank and then cashing in the briefcase that night against Rey Mysterio to become the World Champion. We hear Kane’s motivation for winning the title and how he did it for the Undertaker. Then we see the accusations between Kane and Rey Mysterio over who injured the Undertaker.

Kane is walking in the back as we go to commercial.

Winner: Kane

After the match, Kane gets on the mic and he says that Rey Mysterio attacked and incapacitated his brother. He says that the guilt is flowing through his veins like a disease. Desperation becomes the only recourse and it is obvious that desperation was the motivation behind his actions. On Sunday, Rey will pay for those actions. His lies will be no match for the hellfire of the dark side. His lies will not protect him from his fate. His lies will not shield him from the eternal darkness that awaits him in the casket. Kane says that his brother found it within himself to reach out from the darkness so he could speak the two words ‘Rey Mysterio’. Even in his blackest of moments, Kane says that he cannot understand the pain that his brother is enduring or the pain of knowing that he will never be the phenom that he once was. If Undertaker was here, he would punish the guilty his way. Kane tells Rey that on Sunday, vengeance will be delivered by the devil’s favorite demon.

Rey Mysterio comes out to interrupt Kane’s pyro. He says that Kane comes out speaking about evil and lies claiming to be the devil’s favorite demon. He tells Kane that he is looking at one of God’s humble servants. If there is one person who had a motive to take out the Undertaker, it wasn’t him, it was Kane. Who found the Undertaker? Who wrongfully accused everyone of doing it? Who has been living in the shadow of their brother since he was born? Who had the most to gain? Rey says that it was Kane. He says that the title that Kane is holding, if Undertaker was here right now, it would be in his hands. Rey says that on Sunday that title belt will be in his hands because Kane will be one move away from the 6-1-9.

Welcome to PWInsider.com's live, ongoing coverage of WWE Summerslam 2011!

We open with Adam Jones of Tool performing the national anthem on guitar.

The Miz & Alberto Del Rio & R Truth vs. Kofi Kingston & John Morrison & Rey Mysterio

Miz came out first alone, wielding a mic. He proclaimed that the most must see champion of all time has returned to Summerslam. He said that he wanted to thank each and every one of the fans for their insistence that he compete tonight and for all their unwavering support. He told them to sit back and steal the show as only he....

R Truth's music began and Truth came out. He said that he didn't know why The Miz would want to thank anyone in Los Angeles. He said that he hates spiders and they start with the letter "S" as does Summerslam. He tied Cee Lo Green into his conspiracy. He started in on the crowd, but Alberto Del Rio's music began. He came to the ring, where he got a nice positive reaction.

The babyfaces all made singular entrances as well.

Kingston and Miz started out. Miz ate a monkeyflip. Morrison tagged in and they doubled oin Miz. Miz was able to tag out to Truth. Morrison tackled him and slammed him into the turnbuckles.

Rey hit a top rope splash on Truth and scored the win.

Your winners, Kofi Kingston & John Morrison & Rey Mysterio

Good back and forth opener. I'd love to see WWE hold more six man tags on PPVs as it allows for all sorts of different combinations and fresh interactions. Rey was held out for the most part to protect his ailing knee but

Johnny Ace wanted WE champ CM Punk to tell him that the kick on Raw was an accident and demanded a public apology. Punk just smirked and gave him a completely fake, asskissing apology. He smiled at Ace. Ace walked off and Punk sneered. He turned around and walked into Stephanie McMahon. She said she came to wish him luck. Punk said he finds that hard to believe and told her to run along to her husband or her father. They mentioned he's still Chairman of the Board. She told them that she spoke to both of them and they wished him and Cena luck, but what did she know, since she's just the clueless daughter. Punk agreed and said, "but you said it, not me. I said idiotic." She offered her hand and he said, "I would but I know where that hand has been" and walked off. Pretty entertaining. Stephanie's appearance didn't get the reaction you'd expect.

VVideo feature on Mark Henry. Really well done.

Mark Henry vs. heamus

Henry used his power to control Sheamus early. Sheamus fired back with a series of shots across the face and back, taking Henry down to one knee. Henry returned fire and they slugged it out. Sheamus was tossed to the floor. Henry continued the beating and brought Sheamus back to the ring, covering him for several near falls.

Henry set up Henry across the ropes and splashed him, doing the same move the Big Bossman used to do. The crowd reacted bigtime to that. Sheamus kicked up at two. The crowd began chanting for Henry. Sheamus fired back with punches but was caught with a backbreaker.

Sheamus tried to pull Henry into the ring but Henry grabbed him and charged the ring barricade. They crashed through it and into the first row. Henry recovered first and returned to the ring. Sheamus struggled to return to the ring but didn't make it in by the ten count.

Your winner by countout, Mark Henry!

Solid match. Henry's aura and mannerisms improve by the week. They had some good back and forth exchanges and it was a solid slugfest. The ending was booked well as there's no way Sheamus lost any momentum with that finish. He will live to fight another day.

Josh Mathews interviewed World champion Christian. Christian promised that Orton was not leaving the PPV champion. Christian said he had an insurance policy and the entire WWE is the beneficiary. Christian said the match was going to be the epic Summer blockbuster while he's going to be like Harry Potter. He said Orton is going to be like Cowboy and Aliens, overproduced and overmatched flop.

Cee Lo Green performed. I can't believe he didn't wear the Road Warriors inspired outfit. The Bellas, Rosa Mendes and Alicia Fox came out and danced with him for "Forget You." It's sort of silly to have HEELS smiling and dancing, but hey, that's WWE. The performance was good but Kid Rock still keeps his crown as best musical performer to ever appear on a WWE PPV.

WWE Divas champion Kelly Kelly (with Eve) vs. Beth Phoenix (with Natalya)

New outfit for Beth. It looked good.

Kelly went right after Phoenix but Phoenix was too powerful. Kelly nailed a spinning headscissors but at the end just dropped down and Beth went out of the ring anyway. Kelly did a handstand into a Tarantula like move. She went to the topes and hit a clothesline to the floor.

Phoenix was tossed back into the ring. Phoenix went for a backslide but Kelly ran up the turnbuckles to escape. Phoenix cut her off, then pressed and dropped her across the ropes. She almost lost Kelly.

Phoenix continued working over Kelly, then shoved her face into her butt to mock her. Phoenix slammed Kelly and covered her for a two, then cinched in a rear chinlock. Kelly started to fire her way out but Beth drilled her and used an over the shoulder backbreaker. Bruno Sammartino would be proud.

Kelly drilled Phoenix in the face to escape and nailed a neckbreaker. Kelly tried to fire up with offense but was nailed in the face and tied to the tree of woe. Phoenix began stomping her in the gut. Kelly slipped over and out, then rolled up Beth for a two count.

Phoenix choked her against the ropes and kicked her in the head. She reached for Kelly but was snapped across the ropes. Kelly went nuts screaming and smashing Beth's face into the mat. She went for the handspring elbow but Phoenix caught her and lifted her onto her shoulders.
