NEWS AND STUFF COMING OUT OF THE ST. LOUIS SUPERSHOW:
-Khris Kardoucheian and the Kardoucheians were not happy as they returned to the back after losing again to the Stevens Dynasty. They fully expected to be ‘put over’ last night but Bo Stevens’s Texas Cloverleaf submission scuttled the Kardoucheian’s grand plan. The Kardoucheians stomped back to their fancy Hollywood-style dressing trailer located outside the arena and refused to come out.
-Victoria McGill walked despondently to the back after losing the Women’s title to Daryn Thompson. Joe Bergman caught up with her and accompanied her back to her dressing room and tried to cheer her up. Tori dressed quickly and made a quick exit into the night with Bergman.
-The Stevens Dynasty (Bo, George, Cary, and Scott) were quick out the door to celebrate after the Men’s Tag Team champions retained at the St. Louis Supershow. Plus Scott Stevens needed to get to Chicago for High Octane Wrestling’s Chaos 19 the next night.
-Daryn Thompson celebrated winning the Women’s Title with her No Quarter tag team partner No Quarter Bracken Krueger. Even more interesting, Jill Berg Enterprises CEO Jill Berg was spotted stopping by to congratulate Thompson. Berg reportedly slipped a business card to Thompson before she left with the Women’s Tag Team Champions Sheline Carrigan and Prisoner #034291.
-Men’s Champion ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson left Chaifetz Arena with the HOTv Tag Team champions- his fellow Alabama Gang compadres R.G. Jenkins and Mark Hendry. They were reportedly headed towards a bar to celebrate.
