Ring ka King: Magnus the new champ thanks to the B-O-double-S
By BOB KAPUR - SLAM! Wrestling


After weeks of speculation, the "boss" of the evil quartet of Sonjay Dutt, Brutus Magnus, Scott Steiner and Abyss finally revealed himself to be Jeff Jarrett. His first step in taking over the company: helping Magnus capture the World Heavyweight Championship.

Saturday, March 3

To start the show, the aforementioned villains barged into the office of the Commissioner Jazzy Lahoria, and told him that their boss was coming, and that Lahoria had better give him the right answer as to whether he would sell him the company.

Match 1: Zema Ion vs Pagal Parinda

After a handshake to show mutual respect, the two started off with a series of quick moves and counters. Then came a dazzling display of aerials, including a rotating cross body and then a springboard dropkick by Parinda. Ion avoided a springboard somersault, but when he tried to capitalize by going up top, he got caught. Parinda shoved him down, and followed that up with a moonsault to get the win. After the match, Sonjay Dutt came to the ring to try to intimidate the rookie by challenging him to a match. Rather than backing down, Parinda responded with a couple of standing dropkicks and a flying plancha to the floor.

Winner: Pagal Parinda

Outside the arena, a white SUV pulled into the VIP parking area. Inside, was the boss, revealed to be Jeff Jarrett.

Match 2: Mickie James w/ The Bollywood Boys vs Raisha Saeed w/ The Sheiks

Saeed tried for a sneak attack, but got caught and ate a big dropkick for her troubles instead. James, a bit too enthusiastic, tried to end things early with a flying headscissors, but Saeed reversed it into a powerbomb. Saeed took over then, literally using James as a doormat and keeping her grounded. James was able to power out of a submission attempt, and finding her second wind, dropped Saeed after a series of clotheslines. The Sheiks tried to interfere from the outside, prompting Mickie to hit them with a baseball slide dropkick. This started a fracas on the floor between the tag team enemies. While that was going on, James was able to re-gain control, and hit a jumping DDT for the pin.

Winner: Mickie James

Match 3: Barood & Romeo Rapta vs Scott Steiner & Abyss

The TNA team attacked their opponents before the bell, and just dominated them. Steiner treated Romeo like a ragdoll, suplexing him at will, including off the top rope. Meanwhile, Abyss pummeled Barood on the floor. The punishment was brutal, but fortunately for Barood and Rapta, short. Steiner locked the Steiner Recliner on Barood and Abyss hit Rapta with a Black Hole Slam for the pin. After the match, Steiner ran into the crowd, sending the Indian fleeing in terror. Abyss, meanwhile, assaulted the referee, whipping him into the side of the ring and then throwing him into the waiting arms of Steiner. Steiner then dropped him off the top rope hard with the ugliest superplex ever, and then legit punted him in the side of the head for good measure – that looked brutal. Both Steiner and Abyss were amazing in this segment, building themselves up as major monster heels.

Winners: Abyss & Scott Steiner

Jazzy Lahoria came to the ring, which was set up with office desks and chairs. Jeff Jarrett came to the ring along with the Quartet. Jarrett told the crowd that he was very impressed with Ring ka King so far, but that in order to take the company to the next level, he would have to take full control. He signed the contract, and then handed it over to Jazzy for his signature as well. Lahoria said that he had thought about it long and hard, and that for the benefit of the fans, he would not sign the contract. Jarrett gave him one more chance to change his mind, but Jazzy once again refused, even under threat of violence. In a final act of defiance, Lahoria ripped up the contract. Jarrett was seething with anger, but eventually calmed down, and extended his hand in friendship and respect to the Commissioner, much to the crowd’s delight. But it was all a ruse – as soon as the crowd cheered his gesture of good faith, Jarrett sucker-punched Lahoria and then followed that up with a huge chair shot. They continued to swarm Lahoria, when Harbhajan Singh and Lahoria’s bodyguard Deadly Danda ran in for the save. The show ended with Singh and Jarrett squared off in the centre of the ring.

Sunday, March 4

The show started off with a video from Jeff Jarrett offering an apology for his actions on the last show. He said that his only concern is in doing what’s best for the company. In closing, he wished Brutus Magnus the best in his Heavyweight Championship match against Matt Morgan, and signed off with a cryptic message to Harbhajan Singh, suggesting that he had a plan in mind.

Match 1: Hollywood & Broadway vs The Bollywood Boys

The Boys started off with some quick tags and some showboating, but some shenanigans by the Americans stopped their momentum. Then, H&B took over, delivering some hard strikes and power moves. The Boys eventually made the hot tag, and shortly thereafter, put Broadway down after a double superkick.

Winners: the Bollywood Boys

Backstage, the tag team champions Chavo Guerrero and Bulldog Hart said that Jeff Jarrett will not be able to simply walk in and take over the company if they have anything to do about it.

The Sheiks and Raisha Saeed were shown in the hallway outside of Mickie James’ hotel room, with evil plans in mind. They knocked on the door and when she answered, they kicked it into her, knocking her flat. Inside the room, Saeed slammed Mickie’s head against the wall for good measure.

Match 2: Romeo Rapta vs Roscoe Jackson

Rapta’s ribs were taped up, after his beating on last week’s show, and while he was able to swivel his hips, he couldn’t withstand a big knee to the gut by Jackson. Jackson worked the body some more with an abdominal stretch, but Rapta was able to reverse it and hiptoss Jackson away. Jackson followed that up with a legdrop, and was going to end things with a top rope splash, but Jackson moved out of the way. When he got up, he was prone for Air Jackson, a flying cross body, for the pin.

Winner: Roscoe Jackson

Backstage, Matt Morgan told backstage interviewer Ram that his focus wasn’t on what Jeff Jarrett and his crew were up to, but rather on keeping his Heavyweight Championship.

Match 2: Sir Brutus Magnus vs Matt Morgan – World Heavyweight Championship match

Magnus stalled for time early on, frustrating Morgan, much to the delight of Jeff Jarrett, who was situated on the entrance ramp. As Morgan jaw-jacked Jarrett, Magnus swept in and attacked him from behind. For some time, the two battled outside the ring, where Magnus got the edge through some dirty tactics, including use of the ring steps to smash Morgan’s neck. Magnus dragged Matt’s body back into the ring, where the beating continued. Magnus kept Morgan down, including with some ground and pound pummeling. After several minutes, Magnus clamped on a headlock. It looked like Magnus was going to put the champ to sleep, but Morgan found his second wind. Awake now, he was a ball of fire, whipping Magnus pillar to post, and nearly pinning the challenger after a big clothesline. After a big discus punch, Morgan followed it up with a chokeslam. He was calling for the Carbon Footprint, but got distracted by the crazed Jwala, who ran in from nowhere and jumped onto the apron. With the ref dealing with Jwala, Jarrett tried to make his way to the ring to help his man, but was stopped by Jazzy Lahoria’s bodyguard, Deadly Danda – because, apparently, Dandy wanted to screw over Morgan himself! The big man got into the ring, and whacked Morgan with his billy club, knocking the champ silly. From there, it was academic – Morgan walked into a Magnus Bomb and got pinned.

Winner, and new World Heavyweight Champion: Brutus Magnus

After Jarrett paid off Dandy, the rest of the quartet made their way to the ring and celebrated with the new champion. Several of the Indian wrestlers in the locker room rushed the ring in protest, but the numbers game was too much for them, and they got disposed of. Finally, Harbhajan Singh came to the ring, wielding a club of some kind. Jarrett and his gang weren’t interested in a fair fight, so they high-tailed it out of there. The show ended with Singh warning Jarrett that this wasn’t over.
