James Storm Vs. Jessie Godderz
Much to the chagrin of the audience. Josh Mathews is back on commentary…. Amusingly enough though, Mathews puts himself over on commentary for being able to return to the broadcast table, only minutes after being thrown at ringside by Cody. Mathews makes mention of hall of fame commentators like Jim Ross and Tony Schiavonie. Mathews says if this had happened to them. They would be out for months but he was able to recover quickly and didn’t even need to get his ribs taped. Mathews ends up suggesting to The Pope that Cody was mistaken and didn’t know it was him. That they are good friends and that Cody probably thought he was The Pope. Mathews even takes a crack at Pope by promoting Don West and suggested that he could replace him on commentary. Mathews even goes on to say that he has elevated The Pope on commentary. He even takes a shot at Jeremy Borash. That he needs to be replaced and that he is probably out right now flying his drones…..
Evenly contested battle here between Storm and Godderz. When Jessie takes control. Eddie Kingston of The DCC show up at ringside. The distraction helps Storm re-take advantage of the match. Storm distracts the referee so that Kingston can interfere and choke out Godderz by the ring ropes. Godderz starts to rally and hits a flurry of moves on Storm. He ends the flurry with a blockbuster and gets a 2 count out of it. Meanwhile Mathews on commentary puts over his ability as an in ring wrestler and lays claim to being undefeated in his career…… Storm has now turned the tide and hits a spinebuster for a 2 count. James then goes for the “eye of the storm”. Godderz counters and attempts the Adonis crab submission. Kingston runs into the ring but Godderz knocks him down. The referee turns his back to get Kingston out of the ring. Storm misses with the last call kick. Godderz puts him back into The Adonis Crab. Storm is tapping out but the ref does not see it. Bram runs down to the ring and strikes Godderz from behind with a steel chair. Storm then hits the Last Call kick on Jessie and pins him.
Winner: James Storm
