HWE Fallout Pay-Per-View Results, Feb. 24, 2019: Chambers and Kidd triumph in epic tag team encounter
From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders welcomed everyone to the HWE Fallout pay-per-view as "Do Your Worst" by Rival Sons played, fireworks went off around the stage and in the ring, and the camera panned across sections of cheering fans. Brown and Sanders previewed the night ahead, including the main event – HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd vs. Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn. They reviewed footage of the horrific beating Silva and Quinn gave Chambers and Kidd this past Wednesday on HWE ShowDown after Chambers and Kidd had competed in a 3-on-2 handicap Steel Cage match. Brown noted that Chambers and Kidd were banged up, with Kidd receiving six stapes for his wound at the hands of Quinn, but were cleared to compete. Michael Sanders said that he doubted anything would keep them from tearing into Silva and Quinn tonight before Brown sent it to the ring.
"The Outlier" Serena Bates defeated HWE Women's Champion Harley Clay in 13:26 by submission, when Clay tapped out to the Serena Lock, to win the HWE Women's Championship. During the match, whenever Clay was in control she'd taunt Bates, vowing that Bates wouldn't submit her. Towards the end, Clay set up for Exquisite Trauma but decided against it. She grabbed Bates' ankle and cinched in her own version of the Serena Lock, which Bates looked to be on the verge of submitting to before she made it to the ropes. Later, a frustrated Clay finally went for Exquisite Trauma but Bates caught her leg and cinched in the Serena Lock. Clay fought it for a moment but eventually tapped out. After the match, as Bates celebrated with the championship, Clay sat against the commentary booth, screaming and tearing at her hair. From ringside, Todd Brown said, "Harley Clay vowed not to submit – and even tried to make Serena Bates submit to her own move – but when Bates cinched in that Serena Lock, Clay had no choice."
Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed Madison Hammer about her match with Livia tonight. Hammer said that Livia showed the world her lack of class this past Wednesday by attacking Hammer at the spa. She said, "Livia ruined a $3,000 massage, which I can't get a refund on. Who does that? A classless tramp, that's who. But it's okay. Because Livia may have caught me off guard on Wednesday, but tonight, I'm gonna show her how a real woman kicks ass!" Hammer walked away as the fans booed.
Madison Hammer defeated "The Brazilian Brawler" Livia in 10:40 by pinfall, when Hammer ducked a roundhouse kick, rolled Livia up and used the ropes for leverage. After the match, as Livia explained to the referee what he'd missed, Hammer walked up the ramp with a huge smirk on her face.
Backstage, the cameraman was running to the scene of a commotion, where "The Ice Man" Silas Sullivan was attacking Noah Prince in the locker room and officials were trying to stop him. From ringside, Todd Brown noted that Prince scored an upset win over Sullivan on HWE ShowDown with some help from Ozerov, but said it was no excuse for this. Sullivan threw Prince into some metal lockers and stormed off as officials checked on Prince.
Backstage, Vincent Crashman entered the office of HWE President Oswald Chapman and apologized for letting Chapman down by allowing Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn to hijack HWE ShowDown on Wednesday. Chapman told Crashman not to feel guilty, and said he'd never expect Crashman to put himself in harms way by taking on "a couple of thugs." Crashman said that if Chapman ever needed help again all he need do was ask, and Chapman thanked him. Crashman then asked if Chapman planned to punish Silva and Quinn, and he replied, "I've thought about it. But, knowing how pissed off Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd are – any punishment I could hand out will pale in comparison. They'll get theirs tonight."
"The Ice Man" Silas Sullivan defeated Ozerov in 9:59 by pinfall following the Icepick. Sullivan attacked Ozerov as he made his entrance and threw him into the steel steps. Sullivan then entered the ring and waited as Ozerov slowly entered as well. The referee asked if Ozerov was fit to compete, and when Ozerov confirmed that he was, the bell rang. After the match, Sullivan continued stomping at Ozerov as the fans booed. From ringside, Todd Brown said, "Enough is enough! This savage attacked Ozerov before the match, he's already won, and now he's at it again. Get this bully out of here." Sullivan mounted Ozerov and began punching him when "The New Enigma" Noah Prince appeared. The fans exploded as Prince – still feeling the earlier assault – gingerly ran to the ring, climbed to the top rope and, when Sullivan turned around, hit a flying body press. Prince hammered Sullivan with right hands until Sullivan threw him off and rolled from the ring, backing off up the ramp as Prince helped Ozerov to his feet.
Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed "The Hunter" Chris Jackson, asking about his condition after a second consecutive beating from "The Loch Ness Mauler" Brodie Wolfe on HWE ShowDown. Jackson admitted that he'd never been hit harder than Wolfe hit him, but said he was still standing. He said that as long as there was air in his lungs he could fight, and if he could fight he had a chance of winning and that was all he needed. Romero said, "That's commendable, but as a result of losing to Brodie Wolfe this match is No Disqualifications. That means Elijah Davenport can have Wolfe's help and it's legal. Now, two weeks ago you asked Ezra Jax to be in your corner. He didn't help you that night, nor this past week, and he's not answering anyone's questions. Do you believe Ezra Jax is going to be in your corner tonight?" Jackson sighed and said, "I don't know where Ezra's head is. He's pissed at me. And I get it, but he's the only hope I've got of having someone to even the odds tonight. I hope he'll be there but... I don't know. But, what I do know is that I'm gonna give everything I have to become the new International Champion tonight!" The fans cheered and Jackson walked away.
HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport (with Brodie Wolfe and Dakota) defeated "The Hunter" Chris Jackson in 14:01 by pinfall to retain the HWE International Championship. Towards the end, Jackson was about to hit the Pedigree when Wolfe entered the ring and attacked him. He tried to fight Wolfe off but was, once again, overpowered. Davenport returned to his feet and a two-on-one assault on Jackson commenced until, suddenly, "The Groundbreaker" Ezra Jax's music hit and the crowd exploded. Jax ran to the ring with a steel chair, slid in, and blasted Wolfe in the back with it. When Wolfe staggered towards the ropes, Jax hit him again, knocking him through the ropes to the floor. As he turned, Davenport was in front of him and began begging off. Jax swung at Davenport, but Davenport ducked and Jax hit Jackson by mistake instead. Realizing what he'd done, Jax bent down to check on Jackson before Davenport tossed him out of the ring, and made the cover to retain the title. After the match, Davenport snatched the title from the referee and left up the ramp with Dakota and Wolfe as Jax slid back into the ring to check on Jackson. He helped Jackson to his feet but, as he began explaining the situation, Jackson shoved him away and stormed out of the ring.
Backstage, Kaida Sano was in the medics office getting her injured elbow wrapped when Vincent Crashman entered. He said that while everyone understood Sano wanting this match with Yuku Teshima, there was concern about whether Sano was physically ready and asked her about her condition. In broken English, Sano said that there was nothing – not even an injured elbow – which would stop Yuku Teshima getting what was coming to her tonight. She then promised that tonight, the Kyoto Crippler would be the one getting crippled, and walked away.
Kaida Sano defeated "The Kyoto Crippler" Yuku Teshima in 11:30 by pinfall following a surprise small package. Sano started the match with an offensive flurry – punches, kicks and clotheslines. Teshima eventually turned the tides, attacking Sano's injured elbow which was her target throughout the match. Later, Teshima got Sano up for Blunt Force Trauma but Sano reversed it, hooked the small package and got the upset. After the match, the referee raised a stunned Sano's arm but Teshima attacked Sano and threw her out of the ring. Teshima rolled out and stomped at Sano, and when the referee pleaded with Teshima to stop, she shoved him down. Teshima grabbed Sano by the arm, dragged her to the steel steps and, having knocked the top half off the steps, took a steel pipe from under the ring. Teshima pointed the pipe at Sano when, suddenly, Sidney Kay appeared from the back. The crowd exploded, as Kay ran to ringside and attacked Teshima. Kay hammered her with right hands until Teshima kicked her in the gut and ran her into the post. With Kay out of the picture, Teshima once again picked up the pipe, draped Sano's arm over the steps, stood on her hand to stop her moving, and hit Sano's elbow with the pipe. Four sickening blows later, she let go of Sano's arm and raised the pipe triumphantly. Sano was screaming, tears flooding down her face in agony as a horde of officials came to ringside and pleaded with Teshima to stop. Teshima screamed at them, threatening them with the pipe, before leaving. A wounded Kay crawled over to check on Sano, as officials finally rushed in to aid them both.
A promotional video aired for the HWE Emergence pay-per-view in four weeks on Sunday, March 24, exclusively on the HWE Network.
Backstage, Vincent Crashman interviewed The Cosa Nostra – Lucky Lorenzo, Vito Moretti and Aldo Rossi. Crashman introduced footage from this past Wednesday on HWE ShowDown where, benefiting from Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn's usurping of power, HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction got a two-on-one handicap match against the leader of The Cosa Nostra, Lucky Lorenzo. Crashman asked Lorenzo how he was, and Lorenzo said that he was fine, better than "those hicks" would be when The Cosa Nostra was through with them tonight. Lorenzo added, "Ain't no force on Earth that can stop The Cosa Nostra becoming the HWE Tag Team Champions!" And as the fans cheered, Lorenzo led Moretti and Rossi away.
HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction (Jake Tarver and Johnny Fury) defeated The Cosa Nostra (Vito Moretti and Aldo Rossi, with Lucky Lorenzo) in 9:35 by pinfall following the Baldwin Blues to retain the HWE Tag Team Championships. Towards the end of the match, Moretti and Rossi were in control and, having knocked Fury from the ring, hit Omerta on Tarver. Moretti pinned Tarver, but Fury pulled the referee from the ring. Rossi took Fury out with a suicide dive and meanwhile, Moretti hit Tarver with an elbow drop and made the cover but the referee was down. Suddenly, the lights in the arena went out. When they came back on The Cult – Deelon Mack, Jakob and Joseph – were in the ring. Jakob and Joseph attacked Moretti and hit him with The Initiation. Lorenzo jumped in to help Moretti, but Jakob kicked Lorenzo in the face. Mack ordered Jakob and Joseph to pick Lorenzo up and, when they did, he hit Lorenzo with the Cleanser. The lights went out again and by the time they came back on, The Cult had vanished. Tarver and Fury looked confused for a moment before capitalising. Fury re-entered the ring and they hit Moretti with Baldwin Blues for the win. After the match, as Deep South Destruction collected the titles and left, from ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders questioned what they'd witnessed.
Backstage, "The Embodiment of Excellence" Alfonso Silva and "The Infamous One" Connor Quinn were shown making their way towards the ring when HWE President Oswald Chapman approached them. Chapman said, "I hope you two are proud of the stunt you pulled on Wednesday. And, I know I shouldn't say this, but I really hope Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd kick your asses tonight." The crowd cheered, before Quinn said, "It's nice of you to finally admit your biases, Ozzy. But, I'm afraid tonight won't have your fairytale ending. Because if you thought what we did to your boys on ShowDown was bad, it's nothing compared to what we're gonna do tonight." Quinn and Silva walked away, as Chapman seethed.
HWE Champion Corey Chambers & Kenny Kidd defeated "The Embodiment of Excellence" Alfonso Silva and "The Infamous One" Connor Quinn in 34:10 by pinfall when Kidd pinned Quinn following the Pitbull Stampede. The match started chaotically when Chambers and Kidd storming the ring and a brawl broke out. Chambers took Silva, Kidd took Quinn, and the brawl went around ringside and part way up the ramp before eventually making it back into the ring. Towards the end, Chambers had Quinn covered before Silva broke it up and began attacking Chambers. Chambers battled back and eventually hit Silva with the Corey Cutter. But as Silva rolled from the ring, Quinn attacked Chambers. He whipped Chambers into the ropes – where Kidd made a blind tag – and as Chambers came back, Quinn hit the GFY and made the cover. When the referee didn't count, Quinn began demanding a count and the referee explained that Chambers wasn't legal. Quinn swore, got up, and turned around, where Kidd blasted him with the Pitbull Stampede for the pinfall and the win. After the match, the referee raised Kidd's hand when Silva re-entered the ring and attacked him. Silva stomped at Kidd until Corey Chambers re-entered the ring, picked Silva off of Kidd and blasted him with the Corey Cutter. Chambers and Kidd celebrated their victory as the crowd cheered and HWE Fallout went off the air.
