Jungle Boy defeated SOM Youth Champion, Jake "Hound Dog" Allen. SOM Live in Bean Station, TN began with a continuation of what has to be the longest ongoing rivalry in the SOM, which ended when Jungle Boy hit a superkick that looked as if it could have broken the jaw of the current SOM Youth Champion. Since this was a non-title match, Jungle Boy did not walk away with the SOM Youth Championship around his waist, but he was granted a shot at Allen's title this Friday (July 15th) in Erwin, TN. This rivalry between Jungle Boy and the "Hound Dog" has been going on for quite a while, but the intensity shown in this match by both competitors indicates that their hatred of each other is not even close to it's culmination.
"Dangerous" Dan Matthews defeated Barrett Stout w/The Coven. Proving that he is truly "Dangerous", Dan Matthews continued to show dominance by defeating Barrett Stout. It is very likely that General Manager Branham will move Matthews into the title picture very soon.
The Coven (Kaldr and Onslaught) w/Celaeno the Dark defeated The Medics. In his first official SOM match, the Coven's newest member, Onslaught, showed that he is truly as much of a monster as he looks to be. As soon as the bell rang, the Coven viciously attacked the Medics, and kept control for the rest of the match. Onslaught picked up the win for his team with a devastating gutwrench powerbomb.
East Tennessee Champion, Draco w/The Coven defeated Hank "The Machine" Miller. Even though both Celaeno the Dark and Barrett Stout were sent away from ringside by General Manager Branham, the odds were still not in the favor of "The Machine". Not only did he have to face Draco inside the ring, but he also had to watch his back, with the remaining members of the Coven, Onslaught and Kaldr, stationed at ringside. Unable to win a three-on-one fight, Miller was pinned after a cutter from Draco. The ever-growing Coven, now consisting of five members, has managed to use their numbers advantage to help Draco defeat "The Machine" multiple times. If their interference continues, Miller's chances of regaining the East Tennessee Championship are practically nonexistent.
SOM Heavyweight Champion, Maverick and Luscious Lawrence fought to a double count-out. This hard-hitting match ended when an even harder-hitting brawl brawl began at ringside. Soon, the fight between Maverick and "Mr. Juicy" spilled into the parking lot. Destroying everything in their path, neither man cared about the result of the match any longer. At this point, intentions were only about causing as much pain as possible. It appeared that "The Luscious One" got the best of the brawl, since after nearly throwing Maverick through a wall, he climbed back into the ring to challenge Maverick to a rematch at an upcoming show. We have been informed by General Manager Branham that the rematch will occur this Friday (June 15th) in Erwin, TN.
East Tennessee Tag Team Champions, JC Addams and RT3 defeated The EGC 2.0 (Sir Brian Jeffries and Sir Richard Doolee) w/The Ryan Price by disqualification. In their first defense of the East Tennessee Tag Team Championship since winning the titles in Wise, VA, JC Addams and RT3 were able to defeat the EGC 2.0 once again. However, this time, the circumstances were a bit less decisive. RT3 hit an incredible spear and then went for the pin. The referee started to make the count, but before his hand hit the mat for the count of three, he was pulled out of the ring by The Ryan Price. Price's attempt to save his team from losing the match resulted in the EGC 2.0 being disqualified. We have received word that General Manager Branham has been contacted by a group of people claiming to be The Ryan Price's lawyers, who say that Price demands that the EGC 2.0 be granted a rematch this Friday in Erwin, TN, since neither Doolee or Jeffries were pinned or submitted. After the match, the EGC 2.0 attacked Addams and RT3. BTSG ran out to save them from the EGC 2.0, and his match with The Ryan Price began immediately.
X Division Champion, The Ryan Price w/The EGC 2.0 defeated BTSG. The Ryan Price has once again weaseled his way into a successful X Division Championship defense. JC Addams and RT3 returned to ringside mid-match to stop interference from Doolee and Jeffries. This resulted in a brawl just as intense as the one between Maverick and Luscious Lawrence earlier in the night. The referee, preoccupied by the chaos going on at ringside, did not realize that while he was pinning BTSG, Price had his feet on the ropes in order to gain more leverage.
