DJ Hyde vs. The Big O
The stipulation for this one is that if O gets the win, he gets a title shot against Flawless Blake Morris at Psycho Circus. Morris cuts a promo before the match, upset that he had to work 6 years before he got a title shot, and O got one in six months. He’s upset that he doesn’t have a match tonight, and makes an open challenge for a title shot. Big O’s music hits, but Jonathan Evans comes out, dressed in O gear. They cut a promo with the little guy pretending to be the big guy, until the real guy comes out.
O spends a bit of time trying to get DJ up for a slam, but DJ is too heavy. Ref bump. DJ hits a lariat and has it won, but Morris tells him to big O up, rubbing the belt in O’s face. Blake backs up and goes for a belt shot, but O moves, and Blake nails DJ. O takes out Morris, hits a powerslam on DJ, and gets the 3 count.
What I liked: Match was okay. Finish was good. O isn’t the best worker, but his quest for the title has been fun. Morris can no longer dodge O and has to defend his title. Good story. It’s been a little bit predictable, but that’s not exactly a bad thing.
