Gregory Helms Vs Scotty 2 Hotty Vs Psicosis Vs Brian Kendrick Vs Paul London Vs Funaki Vs Kid Kash Vs Super Crazy Vs Nunzio – Cruiserweight Title – No Way Out February 19th 2006
Another multi-man CW title match to kick off a PPV! Nice choice imo, taking a page out of Nitro’s book back in the day. Kick start a PPV with a fast paced action filled match to get the crowd going.
Like the RR, Helms isn’t liked by anyone. He still sees himself as a Raw star, and believes himself to be better than anyone on SD. So the SD CW’s took it upon themselves to destroy Helms on SD the week before. So now Helms just wants to survive, while the rest want to win the belt and beat the shit out of Helms if they get the chance.
Helms tries to enter the ring, but everyone goes after him, so he jumps out and stays on the floor for a while as everyone else starts the match. Smart decision by Helms; let everyone else beat the fuck out of each other, then pick the bones.
Eventually it comes down to 2 guys in the ring (Funaki and Kash), which brings in Helms to make sure nobody gets a pin. He starts attacking Kash, then turns around when he realises he isn’t alone… the rest of the competitors are back in the ring and out for blood.
The match now becomes a 9 way since Helms has no choice but to join in. Some cool stuff with Mexicools and Londrick in there working as together in their respective teams.
Liked the little spot where Helms and Kash (another hated CW, and the champ going into the RR last month) meet in the ring and go at it. Shame the fans acted like nothing at all was happening…
Its all similar to RR, only with more men and more awesomeness. Plenty of stuff to just sit back and enjoy, because like RR, there isn’t really a story for them to work with. They already did the bits with Helms Vs the world, so once they got through with that, they were essentially free to just work with the MOVES~! part.
Amazing how over S2H has managed to be for like, 6 years at this point in time lol, considering he did fuck all for maybe 4 and a half of those years. They go fucking apeshit when he is left alone with Helms and goes for the worm, because they can legit see him winning. I can’t :p. And hey, he doesn’t! :p
Another nice finish to this match, with Helms sneaking in once again and stealing the win. Finishing stretch was pretty sweet as well. Also like how the other 8 guys realise what happened and chase Helms to the back.
