20-Point Bound For Glory Series Falls Count Anywhere Match
– Rob Van Dam vs. Magnus vs. Mr. Anderson vs. “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero
After a BFG series video package, and a quick look at the leaderboard, it’s time for the first BFG series match. Rob Van Dam is the first man out to the ring, and he gets a nice reaction from the crowd.
D’Angelo Dinero’s music comes on, but he’s nowhere to be seen. They start the music over again, but still no sign of Pope. Backstage, he’s shown being assaulted by Aces and Eights. His arm is smashed in a gate and Pope is left screaming in pain.
Moving right along, Magnus makes his way out to the ring and I guess we’re just going to act like nothing happened. Magnus is looking over his shoulder to make sure he’s not attacked next.
Mr. Anderson is the last man to make his way to the ring, for the now three way match. Anderson stops at the top of the ramp to call down the mic and do his thing. He says it looks like Aces and Eights just made this a three way dance. The crowd chants ‘A-hole’. Anderson says that’s one less b**** he’s got to worry about. 20 points on the line for the man from Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The bell rings and all three men are slow to start. RVD takes in the crowd, but his gloating leads to Magnus knocking him out to the floor. Magnus shoulder blocks Anderson, but he’s hip tossed and clotheslined for two.
Anderson kicks Magnus in the shoulder, but Magnus comes back with a clothesline. RVD comes back in and takes Magnus into the corner, and Anderson into the opposite. He kicks Anderson and monkey flips Magnus before leg dropping Anderson and kicking Magnus, sending himself and Magnus crashing to the floor. RVD suplexes Magnus into the barricade and kicks Anderson in the head, but Anderson crashes into him and knocks him from the apron into the barricade. Magnus pulls Anderson from the ring and backs him into the apron hard.
Anderson turns things around, backing Magnus into the ring apron before sending him head first into the ring steps. Anderson goes for a pin and gets a two. Anderson smashes Magnus’ head into the barricade, but an Irish whip is reversed and Anderson is sent into the ring steps. Magnus grabs a chair and winds up, but Anderson ducks, kicks Magnus and kicks Magnus in the gut. Anderson teases a DDT on the chair, but Magnus pushes Anderson down on the chair hard. Magnus takes Anderson up toward the entrance way, punching him the whole way. He suplexes Anderson into the guard rail, but RVD throws a chair into Magnus’ back out of nowhere.
RVD comes off the entrance ramp and crashes down on top of Anderson, laid out across the barricade, with a big leg drop. He stops to gloat and Magnus takes him out from behind with a chop block to the knee. Magnus locks in a cloverleaf, and RVD holds on. Anderson breaks things up with a clothesline to the back of Magnus’ head. Anderson takes Magnus down to the ring and hits him with rights, but Magnus fights back with rights of his own. Both men go for, and connect with, clotheslines and both go down. RVD comes in and goes to the top, but Anderson hits the ropes and crotches RVD.
Anderson heads up after RVD. Magnus tries to get in on it, but Anderson tosses him from the ring. RVD fights Anderson off and hits the five star frog splash, but Magnus pulls him from the ring to break up the pin. Magnus hits a big suplex on the entrance ramp to lay out RVD. Magnus wants a chair, and gets into a bit with a chair for his, but doesn’t get it. Magnus eventually does track down a chair and he lays it down on the top of the entrance ramp.
He picks up RVD, but RVD fights out. RVD grabs the chair and tosses it to Magnus, hitting a single leg drop kick to drive the chair into Magnus’ face. RVD gets the pin, and the three count.
Winner of 20 points in the BFG series: Rob Van Dam
RVD has moved to second place in the standings.
JB is backstage and he talks about the uneasy feeling after the Aces and Eights attack earlier. Madison Rayne comes in and JB asks about Earl Hebner. Madison says she thinks JB has a crush on Hebner. She’s been champion before and she doesn’t need help to win the title. When the title’s on the line, Tessmacher can’t beat her. She blows a kiss to Hebner before walking off.
