Kevin Watson vs. Simon Alex Theodore
SAT entered the ring first and paced, microphone in hand, and asked the Chapel Hill crowd if they could spell ‘Victorious.’
“Victorious, of course,” he said, “tonight is spelled S – A – T.”
Olivia applauded, but most of the fans booed. Fortunately for them, the Greensboro Champion was quick to enter, belt over his shoulder, like a conquering hero. There was a small, but vocal chant of “WELCOME BACK!” shouted at the man formerly known as K-9.
When the bell rang, Watson started off hot, using his weight advantage to keep SAT on the ropes. He doubled his young opponent over with a knee to the gut, and flipped him to the mat with a snapmare! Reverse chinlock applied, and quickly reversed by the challenger, as he snuck behind his back and took him down with a reverse hammerlock.
Watson hooked SAT's head from behind and leveraged his way back to his knees, and just like that, drove his head backwards into SAT's face, breaking the hold and flipping the match again. The Champion rolled through and turned, just in time to drive his shoulder into SAT's stomach as the challenger rose to his feet, and rolled him up for a quick ONE... TWO... Kickout!
Another bounce off the ropes, but this time SAT was ready for him, and hip locked Watson over the top rope! The Champ held onto the top as he skinned the cat, but SAT was off the opposite side, and a baseball slide took out Watson’s ankles, and the Greensboro Champion fell to the floor!
Now, it was a matter of time. Patrick Young started the count as Watson got to his feet and paced for a few moments. He grabbed the top rope, but backed off and dropped down to the floor as SAT rushed him. Young gestured the challenger back, and Watson slid inside behind his back! He clipped SAT’s leg, dropping the challenger to his knees, and fired a pair of forearms to the back of his head! Watson off the far ropes again… SAT with a reversal! He lunged forward and caught the Champion around the chest, and a uranage put Watson down on the mat!
Before he could go for the cover, the champion rolled to the ropes.
SAT grabbed him around the waist and, using the ropes as a catalyst, rolled Watson up in a small package. ONE… TWO… Kickout sent SAT into the ropes, himself! Watson ducked down as the challenger rebounded back towards him, and a backdrop attempt was foiled by SAT with a kick to the face! Kick to the gut! DDT! Cover, ONE… TWO… Kickout!
Theodore with a handful of hair pulled Watson back to his feet, and a European uppercut staggered the champion a few steps! A short arm clothesline put him back to the mat! SAT wasted no time, he bounded off the ropes and dropped a leg across Watson’s neck! Another cover, ONE… TWO… TH—KICKOUT!
Another scoop, and the challenger drew his hand across his neck, signifying that the match was over. He sent Watson back into the ropes, all set for the NERDS RULE DDT---WATSON WITH A REVERSAL! SUPERKICK! Watson fell onto SAT, ONE… TWO… THREE! KICKOUT! NO! Young calls for the bell!
Watson rolled out of the ring and grabbed the Greensboro Championship belt as the replay started on the CSWAvision screen, and it looks like SAT kicked out just a fraction of a second after the three. SAT pounded the mat in frustration – he had come up short tonight, but it was obvious that he and the Greensboro Champion would have another meeting – and another night, it was anyone’s guess who would come out on top.
WINNER via Pinfall: Kevin Watson (Retains title)
