Ring ka King: Lawyers, ladders and golden wings
By BOB KAPUR - SLAM! Wrestling


This week on Ring ka King, the gimmick matches came out, including a ladder match, a blindfold match, a Mumbai Street Fight and a mixed tag match. Who was involved and how did things turn out? Let's head to the ring and find out!

March 31

The show starts off with Vijay, RDX’s lawyer, in the ring, and he announces that whatever Jeff Jarrett wants, Jeff Jarrett gets, and that anyone who doesn’t like it will pay the consequences.

Match 1: Roscoe Jackson vs Outlaw Isaiah Cash – Mumbai Street Fight

They cut to the parking lot where Jackson and Cash were fighting on a parked truck bed, hitting each other with Singapore canes. The fight spilled to the ground, and then into the truck cabin, where Jackson battered Cash’s head into the steering wheel. The two then brawled beside the building, throwing each other into the wall, until the action eventually spilled into the building. The two brawled in the stands, where Cash battered Jackson with chairs, sending at least one bouncing into the crowd, and splitting open Jackson’s forehead. They tumbled off of the first balcony and to the floor, and eventually made their way to the ringside area. Here, Jackson found a weapon, and soon Cash was wearing the crimson mask as well. The two brawled around the ring, using whatever plunder they could find against each other. Shades of Tupelo, as they brawled into the concession carts. Jackson laid Cash on top of one of the wooden carts, and then hit a big flying elbow onto him from the stage – that looked awesome. That wasn’t enough to put Cash down, though, and the fight continued. On the floor, Jackson put Cash’s head in a garbage can, and then dropped a big elbow onto it, which looked great. Finally, the two got into the ring. Cash avoided a superplex-through-a-table attempt by gouging Jackson’s eyes. He then reached into his pocket and blinded Jackson with a mystery powder. He then shoved Jackson through the table and got the pin.

Winner: Isaiah Cash

Backstage, RDX’s lawyer and Deadly Danda interrupted a pep talk that Chavo Guerrero and Bulldog Hart were giving to perennial loser Barood. The lawyer told Barood to get ready for a major announcement later. And then told Guerrero and Hart that Jeff Jarrett was kicking them out of the building, and that if they refused to leave, they would be fired.

The American Adonis came to the ring for another Adonis Lock Challenge. Before he could select a fan from the crowd, Mahabali Veera came to the ring to accept. Adonis hesitated at first, but didn’t chicken out. Instead, he locked on the hold. It looked like he was going to put Veera out, but the Indian Superman powered up and broke the hold, shocking Adonis and thrilling the crowd. As Veera was going to open the briefcase with his reward, Adonis attacked him from behind. Adonis and his lackey double-teamed Veera, and then Adonis clamped on the Adonis Lock again, knocking out Veera.

Backstage, RDX’s lawyer told Matt Morgan that his services were not required on this show, and that he would have to leave. Morgan stared down Deadly Danda, and essentially challenged him to a match.

Match 2: Sheik Mustafa Bashir & Raisha Saeed w/ Sheik Abdul Bashir vs Romeo Rapta & Angelina Love

The men started this one off, with Rapta surprising Bashir with his quickness. Distraction from Abdul on the outside helped the Sheik gain control, and some dirty tactics by Raisha helped him keep it. But Rapta was able to escape jeopardy, and made the hot tag to Angelina. She battered Raisha, hitting some impressive moves, including a huge kick to the face. The Sheiks broke up the pin, only to get taken out by Rapta and Zarovar the mini wrestler. In the confusion, Raisha pearl harboured Love, and knocked her out, to get the pin. As Rapta and Zarovar fought over whose fault it was, Dr. Nicholas Dinsmore sneaked in the ring to ostensibly check on Love’s condition. The whole chaotic scene was interrupted by RDX’s lawyer who told them to clear the ring and stand around it. He also called Barood to make his way ringside.

The lawyer then introduced RDX (for those that were asking what the faction’s name means, RDX is a type of high grade explosive, similar to TNT – thanks to @JeffJarrettTNA for the assist on that one). Jeff Jarrett told the crowd that as the new boss of Ring ka King, he was going to be making some drastic changes. He announced some matches that he was booking for the next show involving the members of RDX. He also proposed a match between himself and his Indian nemesis Harbhajan Singh, and was so confident about it that he offered to wrestle Singh while blindfolded.

Jarrett then brought Rapta, Zoravor and Barood back into the ring. He told them that instead of firing them, he was letting them stay, but in a non-wrestling capacity. He gave Barood the job of sweeping the floors, Rapta the job of cleaning the building’s toilets, and Zoravor the unenviable job of kissing Jarrett’s foot. Jarrett removed his sock and shoe, and the RDX members forced the little guy’s head and mouth into position. Zoravor fought back, though, and chomped on Jarrett’s little piggies. This didn’t sit well with RDX, and they pummeled him with their finishers, including a suplex by Steiner, a sit-down powerslam by Magnus, and the Shock Treatment by Abyss. As RDX celebrated, they were surprised by the emergence of a big sumo wrestler onto the entrance ramp. They show ended with the sumo staring down RDX who were in shock at the sight.

April 1

The show started off with RKK Heavyweight Champion Brutus Magnus coming to the ring, accompanied by RDX teammate Sonjay Dutt. They ran down the matches for the night. The first will see Abyss and Scott Steiner defend their Tag Team Championships against a team that, Dutt says, Hart and Guerrero were afraid to face. The second will see Magnus defend his belt against a wrestler whose name will be picked at random. The third will see Jarrett take on Harbhajan Singh with Jarrett blindfolded. Magnus pulled a name from the bag, and he doesn’t look pleased. Dutt then announced a bonus match that will show off why he is the company’s best high flier. His opponent? The mini Zarovor.

Match 1: Sonjay Dutt vs Zarovor – Ladder match for Dutt’s golden wings

Backstage, Jimmy Rave, Zema Ion and Pagal Parinda complained that Dutt isn’t the best flier in the company and that he’s making a mockery of their preferred style by wearing the wings unjustly. The match was played for comedy early on, with Zarovor hitting and moving to embarrass Dutt. He even knocked Dutt down long enough to grab a ladder and bring it into the ring. He surprised Dutt further by hitting a big high cross body off the top rope, and then reversing a power bomb attempt into a hurancarana. But when he tried to climb the ladder, Dutt threw him down hard, and grabbed the wings to win.

Winner: Sonjay Dutt

As Dutt celebrated his win with Magnus, the mysterious sumo wrestler came out of the locker room and stared him down from the entrance ramp. The sumo then had a seat on a velvet couch that was nearby, presumably to watch all of RDX’s matches for the night.

Match 2: Abyss & Scott Steiner vs the Mumbai Cats – Tag Team Championship match

The Cats surprised the big men early on, but the power and size of Abyss and Steiner was too much for them. This was an extended squash match that ended with Steiner hitting one of the Cats with the Frankensteiner off the top rope to get the pin.

Winners and still Tag Team Champions: Abyss and Scott Steiner

Rather than celebrate their win, and apparently looking to punish the Cats some more, the monsters intimated announcer Jeremy Borash and made him announce that this was now a two-out-of-three falls match. In the ring, Abyss hit a Cat with the Black Hole Slam within seconds to get the pin and end the match again.

Again, the Winners and still Tag Team Champions: Abyss and Scott Steiner

Backstage announcer Ram was with Hart, Guerrero and Matt Morgan, who proclaimed their support for Harbhajan Singh in his context against Jeff Jarrett. Elsewhere, Jarrett was training with a blindfold on. Vijay got in the way, unfortunately for his nose. Cut back to Ram who was with Mahabali Veera who said that after breaking the Adonis Lock, his next step was to break the American Adonis.

Jarrett came to the ring wearing his blindfold. He dared Harbhajan Singh to come to the ring and face him. Instead, RkK’s lawyer came out, and said that Singh was not at the building and there would be no such match. Jarrett then challenged anyone in the building. Cue the music for Jazzy Lahoria, who came out wearing street clothes. At the sound of his music, Jarrett removed the blindfold and stood there with a confused expression. Lahoria told Jeff it didn’t matter that Harbhajan Singh wasn’t there, that he was more than enough to take on Jarrett, and he dared Jeff to put on the blindfold and go through with it. Jarrett accepted.

Match 2: Jeff Jarrett vs Jazzy Lahoria – Jarrett in a Blindfold match

Lahoria had the clear advantage, what with being able to see, and he nearly got a quick pin. After kicking out, Jarrett directed Vijay to distract the ref, so he could hit Lahoria with a low blow. After that, and a Stroke, Jarrett got the dirty win. After the match, Jarrett viciously “El-Kabonged” Lahoria with his trademanrk Guitar.

Backstage, Dutt and Magnus planned to go out and celebrate Jarrett’s big win. As they left the room, Chavo, Mahabali Veera and Matt Morgan emerged from their hiding spaces. They looked at the bag from which Magnus’ opponent name was chosen, but didn’t seem happy with their findings.

Match 3: Sir Brutus Magnus w/ Sonjay Dutt and Deadly Danda vs Barood – Heavyweight Championship Match

The RDX members laughed hysterically when Magnus’ opponent’s name was selected, given Barood’s winless record in the ring so far. Good thing for Magnus it wasn’t a chicken wing eating contest. Magnus started off by mocking Barood, but ate a number of big fists for his trouble. That didn’t lost long, though, and after a big running elbow and a sit down powerslam, Magnus got the win, defending his title in record time.

Winner and still Heavyweight Champion: Sir Brutus Magnus

After the match, Morgan, Veera and Chavo hit the entrance ramp, carrying the bag containing the names of Magnus’ potential opponents. They revealed that all of the slips had Barood’s name on it. The three then hit the ring to punish the RDX cheaters, while other members from the roster came ringside to watch the villains get their comeuppance. The show ended with the RDX members retreating back up the entrance ramp.
