Funking Conservatory – Results from Support the Troops 17, Red White Black and Blue
!BANG! TV’s Television Taping started 15 minutes early as the Funking Conservatory Arena was packed to capacity with a standing room only crowd of 200 avid wrestling fans.
Special Guest for the !BANG! TV Taping was Jack Brisco. Appearing on the card, Jerry Lynn.
In a three way battle for the Women’s Championship, a new Women’s Champion was crowned when Miss Vicki (Corner Person Shane Chung) won after first spearing The Claw, Claudia Reiff (Corner Person Jerry Lynn) then catching her own tag team partner, Lady Kimberly (Corner Person Blain Rage) with a spear then covering her for a three count. Lady Kimberly’s foot was on the bottom rope however it was pushed off by Miss Vicki’s Corner Person, Shane Chung and the Referee awarded Miss Vicki the Funking Conservatory Women’s Championship.
The Funking Conservatory Fighting Heart Award was presented to Viet Nam Veteran Phillip ?????? following recognition of two Purple Heart medals from the US Marines by Johnny Magnum and presention of the Funking Conservatory Fighting Heart Award by Jack Brisco.
In a Fatal Four Way for the Florida Heavyweight Championship, Shane Chung (With Miss Vicki) defended against Blain Rage (With Lady Kimberly), Lance Alonte and Johnny Romano. The end of the match came with Blain Rage covering Johnny Romano for a count of three just as Shane Chung clamped the Ankle Lock on Lance Alonte. Alonte Tapped out at virtually the same time as the referee, The Claw counted three on Johnny Romano. The Referee, The Claw called for the !BANG! TV camera video tape replay at ringside to review the end of the match and declared the winner and new Florida Heavyweight Champion to be Blain Rage having secured the pin fall just a fraction of a second before Shane Chung secured the "Tap Out."
In the final match, Elvis Sharp with the Pop Tarts, Lady Kimberly and Miss Vicki and Flyin’ Ryan "Air" Mitchell with Sandii Skye became new Funking Conservatory Tag Team Champions winning by disqualification over Johnny Magnum and Jerry Lynn in a match held under TNA rules. (Championships can change hands on a disqualification) Sandii Skye’s attempt at a low blow from behind on Jerry Lynn was ill conceived as Jerry Lynn blocked the low blow between his legs and reversed Sandii Skye into a "Bob Backlund" Special Chicken Wing and Half Nelson. The referee, The Claw disqualified Jerry Lynn for unecessary roughness on a non wrestler of the opposite sex giving the Funking Conservatory Tag Team Championship to Flyin’ Ryan "Air" Mitchell and Elvis Sharp.
The next !BANG! TV Taping will be Sunday July 29th. Appearing on the card will be Father James Mitchell and James Storm. For ticket information and Funking Conservatory Training Schedules call 352-895-4658 or visit www.dory-funk.com for more information.
