HWE ShowDown Results, Mar. 6, 2019: Chambers teams with Prince to battle Silva and Sullivan

HWE ShowDown Results for Mar. 6, 2019, LIVE! from the HWE Arena in Brooklyn, N.Y.

From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders welcomed everyone to HWE ShowDown as “Broken Generation” by Of Mice and Men played and the camera panned across sections of cheering fans. Brown and Sanders previewed the night ahead, including an HWE Women's Championship match and an address from Connor Quinn. Brown then revealed that ShowDown would begin with HWE Champion Corey Chambers taking on Silas Sullivan.

HWE Champion Corey Chambers came to the ring to a massive ovation, followed by “The Ice Man” Silas Sullivan, but before the match could start, “The Embodiment of Excellence” Alfonso Silva's music hit and he came to the stage with a microphone. Silva said that he took the first step towards regaining the HWE Title that Chambers stole from him by beating Kenny Kidd last week, and vowed to take it back at HWE Emergence on Sunday, March 24. Silva added that simply beating Chambers for the title at Emergence wasn't enough, he wanted to make Chambers suffer every step along the way, starting now. Silva then dropped the microphone approached the ring. As Chambers kept an eye on Silva, Sullivan attacked Chambers from behind and Silva and Sullivan began putting the boots to Chambers. Suddenly, “The Enigma” Noah Prince sprinted from the back, got on the apron and hit a springboard dropkick on Silva and Sullivan. Prince then battled Sullivan as Chambers took on Silva, and eventually, they cleaned house. As Silva and Sullivan backed off up the ramp, HWE President Oswald Chapman came to the stage with a microphone and said that that based on what had just transpired, the match between Chambers and Sullivan would now be a tag team match, with Chambers and Prince taking on Silva and Sullivan in tonight's main event.

“The Monarch of the Mat” Ryan Knight defeated Orlando Young in 5:13 by pinfall following the Double Decker Drop. During the match, from ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders discussed Knight's return last week, answering Cody Olson's open challenge and beating Olson.

Backstage, HWE President Oswald Chapman was walking down a corridor when HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction (Jake Tarver and Johnny Fury) approached him. Fury said that they were furious and demanded to know what Chapman was going to do. Chapman said, “What am I gonna do about what?” and Tarver replied, “That fluke victory Chris Jackson and Ezra Jax got last week. It's bad enough you put us in the ring with two losers tryin' to fix their little bromance, but then you let their fluke win stand? We're the Tag Team Champions.” Fury explained that Jax wasn't the legal man when he speared them, claimed that they had the match won, and demanded the loss be expunged from the record. Chapman said that he wouldn't expunge anything, reminding Tarver that he was also in the ring illegally at the time. Chapman said, “But, I'll give you a chance at redemption. You see, by pinning you last week, Jackson and Jax became the number-one contenders to your titles. Now, I was gonna make the match for HWE Emergence, but since you wanna get your own back, let's do it tonight; Deep South Destruction versus Chris Jackson and Ezra Jax for the HWE Tag Team Titles!” Chapman walked away as Deep South Destruction threw a fit.

During the break, the camera peered round a corner where DISORDER – Takara Hidaka, Toru Nagata and Koji Goto – were having a conversation in Japanese. Hidaka and Nagata were visibly upset and seemed to be admonishing Goto before walking away, leaving him behind.

The Cosa Nostra (Vito Moretti and Aldo Rossi, with Lucky Lorenzo) defeated DISORDER (Takara Hidaka and Toru Nagata, with Koji Goto) in 13:04 by disqualification when Koji Goto interfered. During the match, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that DISORDER lost a 3-on-2 Handicap Cage match to HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd two weeks ago when, instead of escaping the cage and joining his teammates at ringside to win the match, Koji Goto taunted Chambers and Kidd and cost DISORDER the match. Michael Sanders revealed that his sources had told him that Hidaka and Nagata had been upset ever since, and that during their conversation earlier they'd told Goto not to do anything to cost them this match. Towards the end, Hidaka broke up Rossi's pinfall attempt on Nagata, prompting Moretti to enter the match and clothesline Hidaka out. Rossi and Moretti then set Nagata up for Omerta when Goto entered the ring and attacked them, prompting the referee to call for the bell and disqualify DISORDER. After the match, Moretti and Rossi grabbed Goto, who'd suddenly realized what he'd done. Goto called for help to Hidaka and Nagata who, now watching on at ringside, simply shook their heads and walked away. Moretti and Rossi hit Goto with Omerta as Lorenzo entered to celebrate with his team. Suddenly, the lights went out and thuds were heard in the ring. When the lights came back up seconds later, Moretti and Rossi were down and The Cult – Jakob and Joseph, led by Deelon Mack – were dragging an unconscious Lorenzo up the ramp to the back.

A vignette aired highlighting Cedric White and Evan Alexander. They talked about both growing up in poor families, meeting each other when White travelled to Florida – where Alexander lived – to enrol in wrestling school. Alexander said that they became friends instantly and made it their goal to become champions. White said that their HWE careers hadn't started the way they wanted; having been knocked out of a Contenders Tournament and put on the shelf by Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn. Alexander said that their return last week was a fresh start and that they were more focused than ever on becoming HWE Tag Team Championships.

“The Infamous One” Connor Quinn's music hit and he made his way to the ring to heavy boos. From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders reviewed footage from last week, where Quinn cost Kenny Kidd a number-one contenders match against Alfonso Silva, and then savaged Kidd after the match. Quinn took a microphone and said, “It's funny how everything comes back around, isn't it? At WrestleTopia, Kenny Kidd stole a number-one contenders match from me.” Brown interjected that Kidd won the match fairly, before Quinn continued, “He stole my chance at the HWE Championship. That night I made a promise to make Kenny Kidd's life miserable. I smashed up his car, and alongside Alfonso Silva, I kicked his and Corey Chambers' arses every week for a month. Then we get to Fallout: A night that was supposed to be my crowning moment. The night I would take my place as the face of this company. And what happens? Kenny Kidd steals another moment from me and pins me. But last week, fate handed me an opportunity to make good on my promise. To make Kenny Kidd pay by taking from him what he took from me at WrestleTopia. To take a moment from Kenny Kidd like he took my moment from me at Fallout. So, I did exactly that. I cost him his match and beat him to within an inch of his life – again. And I don't care how you idiots feel about it. Kenny Kidd may be your hero, but as far as I'm concerned, he's nothing more than crap on my boot. But, you know, when I was done kicking his arse; when I was done kneeing him in the face and smashing his head into the steel steps, I made a realization. I realized that making Kenny Kidd's life miserable wasn't enough. I realized that what I actually had to do was to put an end to Kenny Kidd for good. See, Kenny's stolen from me twice. And, yeah, I've kicked his arse for it, but he hasn't really suffered yet. He's not truly paid the price for taking my moments from me. The cost for what Kenny Kidd has taken from me is his dreams. Y'see, Kenny's mission in life is to make his dead daddy proud by becoming HWE Champion. He wants to feel like he's done something with his life and believe that his dead dad'll look down on him with pride. That's the dream that motivates Kenny Kidd... so that's what I'm gonna take away. Last week was just the beginning. Now Kenny's not here tonight because – surprise, surprise – this company is protecting him. They think he has a concussion and they won't let him face me. But I know you're watching, so let me address you personally, Kenny. If you make the decision to show up here again, I promise that it'll be the last time these people ever see you. I promise that I will end you. And I always keep my promises.” Quinn went to leave the ring when a voice was heard which stopped him. The crowd exploded as Kenny Kidd appeared on the HeadlineTron. He was visibly seething with a bandage on his head and said that he'd never stolen anything from anyone. He said that Quinn was nothing than a sore loser, adding “You see, they wouldn't let me show up until they were sure I didn't have a concussion. Well, I just got back from my doctor and, guess what? … I'm concussion free. Which means I'm coming to ShowDown next week!” The crowd cheered as Kidd went on, “Now, I appreciate you warning me what'll happen if I show up, Connor, so let me to extend you the same courtesy. You see, I'll be at ShowDown next week, and the second I get there, I'm coming for you. And when I find you, I'm gonna hurt you. So, I'll see you next week... and we'll see which one of us keeps their promises.” The feed to the HeadlineTron cut, and Quinn stood in the ring, smirking as he shouted back at Kidd.

Backstage, Billie Romero approached “The Princess of Pain” Harley Clay. Romero noted that last week Clay confronted HWE Women's Champion Serena Bates, who'd beaten her for the title at HWE Fallout. Instead of assaulting Bates, Clay shook Bates' hand, and asked her what was going through her head. Clay seemed to be about to speak, but stopped. She chuckled, then laughed, before screaming in Romero's face and storming away.

(Commercial Break)

HWE Women's Champion Serena Bates defeated Madison Hammer in 11:45 by submission to retain the HWE Women's Championship. Towards the end, Hammer was on the top rope and leapt for the Hammerdrop, but Bates caught her leg in mid-air and reversed it into the Serena Lock. Hammer submitted instantly and Bates retained the title. After the match, Bates began celebrating when Hammer attacked her from behind, putting the boots to her before picking up the championship. She stalked Bates as Bates, gingerly, made her way to her feet and was about to hit her with the title when Harley Clay ran out from the back. Clay slid into the ring and attacked Hammer, blasting her with Exquisite Trauma. As Hammer rolled from the ring, Clay picked up the title and stared at it. Bates, who'd gotten to her feet, looked at Clay, cautiously. Clay seemed to be either talking to herself or the title before looking at Bates and, slowly, handing her the championship. Bates took it, still bewildered, as Clay left the ring and went to the back, muttering to herself. 

Backstage, “The Enigma” Noah Prince approached Ozerov and thanked him for coming to Prince's aid last week when Silas Sullivan attacked him. Ozerov said that it was no more than Prince did for him at HWE Fallout, and urged Prince to kick Sullivan's ass. Prince said he would and walked away. Suddenly, Ozerov was attacked from behind by “The Trendsetter” Cody Olson, who put the boots to him before officials filed in to stop Olson.

The ring had been decorated with a red carpet, golden balloons were tied to the ropes, and men in tuxedos stood at ringside holding platters of champagne. HWE ring announcer Robin Leyva then introduced HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport, who came to the ring accompanied by his wife, Dakota, and bodyguard, Brodie Wolfe. Davenport took a microphone and talked about retaining his title “on his own” against Chris Jackson at HWE Fallout. He said that he knew “his fans” missed him last week, but even the “greatest athlete of this generation” needed to recharge his batteries. Davenport claimed to have received a phone call from the British Prime Minister during his vacation, offering to name a national holiday after him, but he “graciously declined.” He added that, although he was extremely wealthy, he was a common man at heart and always listened to his people. He said that he knew his people wanted a chance to celebrate their champion, which was why he was throwing a Championship Celebration. He then called for two glasses of champagne, one of which he handed to Dakota and the other he kept, before toasting himself as the “greatest, most talented, most handsome, and most beloved athlete of this generation.” As he and Dakota clinked glasses and downed the champagne, “The Monarch of the Mat” Ryan Knight's music hit and he came to the ring with a microphone. Knight apologized for interrupting, explaining that during his injury he'd heard about a fellow Brit who'd won the HWE International Champion, and wanted to congratulate Davenport. Davenport smiled and welcomed Knight's congratulations, but Knight interjected and said, “That's what I was going to do. But then I stood back there and listened to what you said, and I've gotta tell you, mate – you've lost it. You come out here and talk about these people being 'your people' while they boo you out of the building. You talk about having retained that title on your own, ignoring that it was your bodyguard and an accidental chair shot to Chris Jackson which allowed to to keep that title. And then you talk about being a hero to the people of the United Kingdom and, I've gotta be honest... that's where you pissed me off. You see, you're not the only one around here who comes from that proud country. I know the people of Britain and, trust me, they don't celebrate pompous arseholes like you. The people of Britain think of you in the same way that the people here do, and the same way I do... as a spoiled little brat who needs his backside tanned.” The crowd exploded. Davenport looked disgusted and asked Knight who he thought he was. Davenport reminded Knight that he was the HWE International Champion and demanded Knight show him some respect. Knight stepped to Davenport and said, “Why don't you make me, pal?” Davenport simply smiled, composed himself, and said, “You see, Mr. Knight, that's the difference between you and I: I'm too good to do my own dirty work. I have people for that.” Davenport then stepped aside and Wolfe attacked Knight. Knight tried to fight back, but Wolfe clubbed him several times before blasting him with the Uranage. Davenport then led Dakota and Wolfe to the back as Knight writhed in pain. 

Backstage, Vincent Crashman approached “The Hunter” Chris Jackson and asked if teaming with Ezra Jax last week, and defeating HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction, had mended their friendship. Jackson said that he still couldn't shake the feeling that Jax cost him the HWE International title on purpose at HWE Fallout, but admitted that Jax rescued him from defeat last week. Crashman asked what becoming the HWE Tag Team Champions tonight would do for their friendship. Jackson said that there was a lot that needed to happen before they became champions, including Jax proving to Jackson that he could trust him. Suddenly, Ezra Jax stepped into frame and they looked at one another. Jax said, “I proved that you could trust me last week when I stopped Deep South Destruction putting you through the ring. But, trust works both ways, Chris. I'll do my part tonight... just make sure you do yours,” and walked away.

“The Hunter” Chris Jackson and “The Groundbreaker” Ezra Jax defeated HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction (Jake Tarver and Johnny Fury) in 12:32 by pinfall, when Jackson pinned Tarver following the Pedigree, to win the HWE Tag Team Championships. Towards the end, Tarver and Fury double-teamed Jackson and set him up for Baldwin Blues when, Jax came to Jackson's aid. They worked together to eliminate Fury from the ring but, as they both looked down at Fury at ringside, Tarver pushed Jackson into Jax, knocking him from the ring. The match continued, with Jackson nailing Tarver with the Pedigree for the pinfall and the win. After the match, the referee handed Jackson the titles as Jax slid back in and snatched a title from Jackson and stepped to him. The two went nose-to-nose, with Jax upset at being knocked from the ring and Jackson trying to explain. Eventually, Jax pie-faced Jackson and stormed to the back. Frustrated Jackson watched on until Deep South Destruction attacked him from behind, blastinh him with Baldwin Blues and angrily leaving the ring.

Backstage, Billie Romero approached “The Ice Man” Silas Sullivan and asked Sullivan about his issue with Noah Prince. Sullivan called Prince a thorn in his side, and said Prince made the biggest mistake of his life by getting involved in Sullivan's business at HWE Fallout. Sullivan added that when he was done with Prince, he'd go after Prince's partner tonight, HWE Champion Corey Chambers, and walked away.

(Commercial Break)

In the ring, Vincent Crashman had a microphone and introduced Sidney Kay, who came out to cheers carrying the steel chair she used to chase off Yuku Teshima last week. Crashman reviewed footage from several weeks ago where Sidney Kay stepped to Yuku Teshima for injuring Kay's friend, Kaida Sano. Then, at HWE Fallout, Kay again attempted to come to Sano's aid as Teshima brutalized Sano's injured elbow with a led pipe. Finally, last week, where Teshima was mauling Miss Nicole after being disqualified in their match, and Kay came to the rescue with a steel chair, battering Teshima from the ring. Crashman noted how dangerous Teshima was and asked why Kay would continue to get involved in Teshima's business. Kay said that she wasn't scared of anyone. She recalled watching Teshima injure her friend, Kaida Sano, twice and said she blamed herself for not managing to stop her. She revealed that sitting with Sano in the ambulance after HWE Fallout lit a fire in her that she promised would burn Yuku Teshima, vowing that Teshima's reign of terror in the HWE women's division would end with her. Suddenly, “The Kyoto Crippler” Yuku Teshima's music hit and Teshima barrelled down the ramp. But, as she got on the apron, Kay swung the chair at her to force her back. Teshima tried again, and again Kay swung wildly with the chair. Kay yelled, “Take your best shot, bitch!” as Teshima began backing up the ramp, screaming with frustrated rage. Suddenly, Miss Nicole appeared behind Teshima, grabbed her by the hair and threw her into the ring. Kay began laying into Teshima with chair shots to the back, before Teshima rolled from the ring and escaped through the crowd. Kay and Nicole celebrated as the crowd cheered.

Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed HWE Champion Corey Chambers and “The Enigma” Noah Prince about their tag team match tonight. Prince called Silas Sullivan an “angry icicle” and promised to thaw Sullivan's rage out tonight. Chambers then talked about Alfonso Silva attacking him last week and again tonight. He compared Silva to a small, annoying dog who wouldn't stop pissing in a bigger dog's yard, and promised to teach Silva who's yard he was in, both tonight and at HWE Emergence on March 24. Chambers and Prince walked away as the fans cheered.

“The Embodiment of Excellence” Alfonso Silva and “The Ice Man” Silas Sullivan defeated HWE Champion Corey Chambers and “The New Enigma” Noah Prince in 15:56 by pinfall, when Silva pinned Chambers. Before the match, Sullivan attacked Prince as he made his way to the ring. Alfonso Silva came through the crowd, slid into the ring and attacked Chambers from behind before Chambers could go to Prince's aid. The match officially began as Silva stomped at Chambers in the ring, while at ringside, Sullivan whipped Prince into the barricade and hit him with the Icepick at ringside. Referees appeared to help Prince to the back, meaning Chambers was left to fend for himself. Towards the end, Chambers – who'd suffered a two on one beat down all match – began battling back against Sullivan and finally knocked him off his feet. Chambers began crawling to his corner on instinct, but it seemed he'd have nobody to tag. Suddenly, the crowd exploded as Prince hobbled back out and gingerly made his way onto the apron. Just as Chambers was going to tag Prince, Silva rushed the ring and blasted Prince with an enziguri. Sullivan grabbed Chambers, hit him with the Icepick, and tagged Silva. Silva ordered Sullivan to hold Chambers, and as he did Silva hit Chambers with the enziguri for the pinfall and the win. After the match, Silva and Sullivan celebrated, with Silva putting his foot on Chambers' chest as HWE ShowDown went off the air.

HWE ShowDown Results, Feb. 27, 2019: Quinn savages Kidd after #1 Contenders match

HWE ShowDown Results for Feb. 27, 2019, LIVE! from the HWE Arena in Brooklyn, N.Y.

From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders welcomed everyone to HWE ShowDown as “Broken Generation” by Of Mice and Men played and the camera panned across sections of cheering fans. Brown and Sanders reviewed what happened last Sunday at the HWE Fallout pay-per-view, before Brown sent it to the ring.

In the ring, Vincent Crashman had a microphone and introduced “The Oklahoma Pitbull” Kenny Kidd, who joined Crashman in the ring. Crashman reviewed footage from HWE Fallout this past Sunday in which, during the tag team main event, Kidd pinned Connor Quinn to win the match. Crashman asked Kidd how it felt to score the deciding pinfall and Kidd said that after weeks of talk, sneak attacks and handicap matches, he and HWE Champion Corey Chambers delivered the ass kicking Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn deserved on Sunday. Crashman congratulated Kidd, before noting that the original main event for HWE Fallout was to be him challenging Chambers for the HWE Title and asked if now, with the path cleared, Kidd intended to challenge Chambers. But as Kidd went to answer, “The Embodiment of Excellence” Alfonso Silva's music hit and Silva came to the stage with a microphone. Silva said that Kidd didn't need to answer, adding that while Kidd may be in line for a title shot he wasn't next in line and needed to wait his turn. Silva said that he wanted his rematch to reclaim the title Corey Chambers “stole” at HWE WrestleTopia before Kidd got his shot. Kidd replied, “You say 'wait my turn,' but what you mean is let you cut in line. Look, if you wanna be the number-one contender spot for the HWE Title, all you have to do is come down here and beat me for it.” Before Silva could reply, HWE President Oswald Chapman came out with a microphone. With a glance at Silva, Chapman said that he wasn't about to let the inmates run the asylum again this week. Chapman said that the title shot Kidd earned at HWE WrestleTopia had expired at midnight this morning, as he'd privately warned Kidd in the weeks leading to Fallout, and said that Kidd would need to re-earn it. Chapman looked at Silva and said, “Now, I'm not feeling too inclined to do you any favours, Alfonso, but as the previous HWE Champion who's yet to have a rematch, your claim to a title shot is as valid as Kenny's. So, tonight, it'll be Kenny Kidd versus Alfonso Silva in a number-one contenders match for the HWE Championship!” The crowd exploded, as Chapman left the stage and the show crashed to break.

“The Enigma” Noah Prince defeated Orlando Young in 6:35 by pinfall following The Undoing. During the match, from ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders discussed Prince's win over “The Ice Man” Silas Sullivan last week and how Sullivan attacked Prince during the HWE Fallout pay-per-view on Sunday in retaliation. Sanders noted that Prince got his own back by coming to the aid of Ozerov when as Sullivan attacked him after winning their match. After the match, Prince celebrated until Silas Sullivan appeared and attacked him. Sullivan put the boots to Prince before hitting him with The Icepick. Suddenly, Ozerov appeared and chased Sullivan from the ring. Sullivan backed off up the ramp, smiling at what he'd done as Ozerov helped Prince to his feet.

Backstage, Vincent Crashman approached HWE Champion Corey Chambers as he was arriving, informed him of the main event, and asked who he'd prefer to be his next challenger. Chambers said that he had a lot of respect for Kenny Kidd and knew everyone wanted to see that match. He said that he was sure it would happen one day, but added, “Having said that, Alfonso Silva has been bitching and moaning since WrestleTopia that I stole this title from him. And even though everyone knows that that's B.S., I can't deny that I wouldn't mind a chance at kicking Alfonso's ass all over that ring and shutting his mouth once and for all!” The crowd exploded and Chambers walked away.

Cedric White & Evan Alexander defeated The Cult (Jakob and Joseph, with Deelon Mack) in 12:46 by count out. As White and Alexander made their entrance, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that they'd been out of action as they recovered from a post-match assault by Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn a few weeks ago. During the match, Brown and Sanders discussed The Cult interfering in the HWE Tag Team Title match on Sunday, attacking The Cosa Nostra and costing them the titles. Towards the end, The Cosa Nostra (Lucky Lorenzo, Vito Moretti and Aldo Rossi) appeared on the stage. Lorenzo led them to ringside, where Mack stood laughing defiantly as he urged them to come. As Lorenzo (with Moretti and Rossi behind him) and Mack exchanged words, Jakob and Joseph abandoned the match to stand by their leader and were counted out. After the match, a brawl broke out between the two sides. Lorenzo and Mack fought, as did Jakob and Moretti, and Rossi and Joseph. A horde of officials ran out from the back to separate them, as fans chanted for the fight to continue.

Backstage, “The Groundbreaker” Ezra Jax approached “The Hunter” Chris Jackson in the locker room. Jax said that he wanted to apologize for costing Jackson the HWE International Championship at HWE Fallout, explaining that he was aiming to hit Elijah Davenport with the chair but Davenport moved. Jackson scoffed and said, “Oh, that's convenient. So, it had nothing to do with me costing you your title match a few weeks ago? Which, by the way, I apologized for and you ignored me for two weeks while I got my ass kicked by Davenport and Brodie Wolfe. As far as I'm concerned, Sunday was no accident and you're either a bad liar or a coward.” Jackson went to leave, but Jax wrenched him back and the two began arguing and shoving each other. Officials rushed in and broke them up as HWE President Oswald Chapman appeared. Chapman called for calm and said that nobody wanted to see them fight one another. Chapman said that what happened on Sunday, just like what happened a few weeks ago, was an accident and that Jax and Jackson needed to trust one another again. He then announced that, in a bid to save their friendship, he was putting them in a non-title match with HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction tonight.

“The Trendsetter” Cody Olson came out and took a microphone. Olson talked about the premiere of HWE ShowDown where he lost to Ozerov. Then he mentioned last week, where he teamed with Orlando Young and lost to The Cosa Nostra. Olson said that neither of those losses should count, citing an “illness” as the reason Ozerov beat him and blaming Young for last week's loss. Olson called them “practice debuts” and said that he'd make his “real” in-ring debut tonight, before issuing an open challenge. After a few moments, “The Monarch of the Mat” Ryan Knight's music hit and, as Knight made his way to the ring, Todd Brown noted that Knight had been out of action after injuring his knee in a non-televised match against Alfonso Silva to crown the first HWE Champion in December.

“The Monarch of the Mat” Ryan Knight defeated “The Trendsetter” Cody Olson in 12:30 by pinfall following the Double Decker Drop. After the match, Knight celebrated and left the ring, as a groggy Olson asked the referee if he'd won.

A vignette featuring HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport aired. Davenport was in shorts on a beach drinking a cocktail. He clinked glasses with Dakota, who was lying next to him in a swimsuit, and as the camera panned out, it was revealed that “The Loch Ness Mauler” Brodie Wolfe was stood behind them menacingly. Davenport addressed the camera and explained that after a successful defense of the title on Sunday, he'd permitted himself a week off and had gone on vacation to the Bahamas. Davenport said, “But, don't worry, your International Champion will be back next week. And, just so that none of you feel deprived of a chance to celebrate the continuation of my title reign, I'll be throwing a Championship Celebration!” Davenport sipped his cocktail as the screen faded on a shot of the crashing waves of the ocean.

In the ring, Billie Romero had a microphone and introduced the new HWE Women's Champion Serena Bates, who came out to a huge ovation and hit all four corners with the title. Romero congratulated Bates on winning the title, and asked how she felt. Bates said that she was still trying to convince herself it was real, and said that the title was hers and her supporters. Romero mentioned the former champion, Harley Clay. Bates said that while Clay was wrong about not submitting to the Serena Lock, she was right about being unlike anyone Bates had faced before, and called Clay the toughest woman she'd ever been in the ring with. Romero then asked what was next for Bates, but before Bates could answer, Madison Hammer's music hit. Hammer came to the ring, took a microphone, and insincerely congratulated Bates on becoming champion. Hammer said that she didn't understand why Bates was getting so much attention since all Bates did was “win a match”. She added that she won a match on Sunday as well and should be receiving as much attention for her win as Bates was. Bates cut her off and said that she didn't just “win a match”, she won the HWE Women's Championship, adding that if Hammer wanted the attention that came with being champion she needed to take it from her. Hammer smirked and said that she could do that with ease but wasn't dressed to compete tonight, adding that she'd gladly take Bates' title next week. Bates accepted and told Hammer to get her hand ready because she'd need it to tap out next week. Bates watched as Hammer left the ring, but when Hammer got halfway up the ramp, “The Princess of Pain” Harley Clay's music hit. Ignoring Hammer, Clay stormed to the ring and, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that Clay was last seen propped up against the commentary desk tearing her own hair out having lost the championship. Michael Sanders said that while he hadn't had much luck reading women before, he was sure from the look on Clay's face that she wasn't happy. Clay approached Bates, who readied to fight, and the two stood looking at one another for a moment. Clay then smiled and extended her hand. Bates, caught off guard, looked around at the crowd who urged her not to trust Clay. After a moment of indecision, Bates shook Clay's hand and Clay left the ring. Bates seemed uneasy, but once she was sure Clay had returned to the locker room, her music hit and she raised her title as the fans cheered.

Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed Sidney Kay. Romero talked about Kay coming to Kaida Sano's aid at HWE Fallout on Sunday as Yuku Teshima took to Sano's elbow  - already injured at the hands of Teshima with a chair weeks earlier – with a led pipe. Kay stopped Teshima momentarily before being thrown into the ring post. Romero asked Kay how she was, and asked if she had an update on Sano. Kay said that she was fine, and revealed that she travelled in the ambulance with Sano to the hospital, and that Sano's elbow had been shattered by Teshima. Kay said that she was sick of Teshima's reign of terror in the HWE women's division and was going to put a stop to it. Romero asked what she was going to do. Kay sighed, said, “Let's just say that it's about time the crippler got crippled,” and walked away.

(Commercial Break)

Miss Nicole defeated “The Kyoto Crippler” Yuku Teshima in 8:12 by disqualification when Teshima refused to stop attacking Nicole in the corner. As Nicole made her entrance, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that Teshima assaulted Nicole before her match last week, in a fit of rage as she tried to get Kaida Sano's attention. After the match, Teshima shoved the referee away and continued stomping at Nicole in the corner. Suddenly, Sidney Kay appeared with a steel chair, hit the ring, and whacked Teshima in the back with the chair. Teshima staggered across the ring and Kay blasted her again, knocking her from the ring as the fans exploded. Kay wielded the chair in the ring, daring Teshima to come get some more, as Teshima screamed in fury on the floor at the bottom of the ramp.

Backstage, Vincent Crashman interviewed HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction (Jake Tarver and Johnny Fury) about facing the team of Chris Jackson and Ezra Jax as they tried to mend their friendship. Tarver said that being put in a match with a “makeshift team” was bad enough, but being the opponents of two men who were trying to reignite their “bromance” was insulting. Fury said that it showed a lack of respect for the titles and for them, and vowed that they'd teach Jax and Jackson a lesson in respect tonight.

(Commercial Break)

“The Groundbreaker” Ezra Jax and “The Hunter” Chris Jackson defeated HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction in 9:09 by pinfall when Jackson pinned Johnny Fury in a non-title match. Jackson and Jax bickered for much of the match, and it seemed at one point that they were going to come to blows before Tarver and Fury attacked them. Towards the end, Deep South Destruction had Jackson up for Baldwin Blues when Jax got back in the ring and speared both Tarver and Fury. Jackson landed on Fury and the referee counted to three. After the match, Jax rolled out and pulled Jackson out before Tarver could get to him. Deep South Destruction threw a fit in the ring as the referee raised Jackson and Jax's hands on the ramp and they looked at each other uncertainly.

Backstage, the cameraman was running to the scene of a commotion where a horde of officials were trying to get Alfonso Silva away as he stomped at HWE Champion Corey Chambers, who was lying on the floor. Silva continued the attack for a few more seconds before finally walking away as officials checked on Chambers.

“The Embodiment of Excellence” Alfonso Silva defeated “The Oklahoma Pitbull” Kenny Kidd in 14:49 by pinfall to become the number-one contender to the HWE Championship. Towards the end of the match, Kidd charged at Silva for the Pitbull Stampede but Silva moved and Kidd hit the referee. As the match continued, Kidd did eventually hit Silva with the Pitbull Stampede and made the cover but the referee was still out. Suddenly, Kidd was pulled from the ring by “The Infamous One” Connor Quinn, who threw him into the barricade before running him into the ring post. As the fans booed, Quinn threw Kidd back into the ring, where Silva covered him and the referee groggily counted to three. After the match, Silva began celebrating when HWE Champion Corey Chambers' music hit and the crowd exploded. Chambers gingerly charged into the ring, but Silva retreated into the crowd and Chambers gave chase. Back at ringside, Quinn slowly entered the ring as Kidd got to his feet. Quinn attacked Kidd again, pummelling him with right hands before tossing him through the ropes. Officials appeared and begged Quinn to stop, but he threatened them to stay away as he went outside and dragged Kidd to his feet. He whipped Kidd into the steels steps where Kidd slumped, sat upright propped up by the steps. Referees were still trying to reason with Quinn, but he yelled at them and they dispersed, before Quinn charged at Kidd, driving a knee into Kidd's head which bounced off the steps. Kidd crumbled to the floor as Quinn stood over him, panting and seething with anger, fans booing heavily, and HWE ShowDown went off the air.

HWE ShowDown Results, Feb. 20, 2019: Silva and Quinn hijack ShowDown

HWE ShowDown Results for Feb. 20, 2019, LIVE! from the HWE Arena in Brooklyn, N.Y.

From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders welcomed everyone to HWE ShowDown as “Broken Generation” by Of Mice and Men played and the camera panned across sections of cheering fans. Brown noted that this was the final HWE ShowDown before HWE Fallout, and noted that a situation had occurred earlier today before introducing the footage: Earlier today, Vincent Crashman approached HWE President Oswald Chapman in his office for an interview. Before Crashman could ask a question, Chapman's phone rang and he said he needed to take it. As the call progressed, Chapman grew increasingly concerned and ended it with, “I'll be right there.” Hanging up, he turned to Crashman and said that he had a family emergency and had to leave. When Crashman asked who was going to run the show, Chapman thought for a moment and said, “You will. Look, the run sheet's on my desk, just go out there and announce the matches I've booked. It'll be fine, I gotta go.” Chapman hurriedly left, as Crashman looked overwhelmed and concerned. Back at ringside, Brown said that they hoped everything was okay with Chapman's family, before sending it to the ring.

Vincent Crashman was stood in the ring with a microphone and a clipboard and said that he'd been left in charge and would now run through tonight's matches. But, when Crashman began reading the list, Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn came out. As they made their way to the ring, Todd Brown noted that Silva and Quinn would face HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd this Sunday. Silva snatched the clipboard as Quinn took a microphone and said, “Nice try, champ, but you're not running this show – we are.” Crashman protested that Oswald Chapman had put him in charge, but Quinn replied, “Ozzy ain't here. But we are, and if you don't leave my pal Alfonso will kick your arse.” Begrudgingly, Crashman left and Quinn continued, “Unfortunately, Oswald Chapman has been called away on urgent family business and is flying back to Iowa. And, Ozzy, man, we hope everything's alright. Well, actually, we know everything's alright because there is no emergency. You see, we had our buddy who make that phone call to get Ozzy out of the way.” Silva and Quinn laughed and fist-bumped, as Todd Brown said that that was reprehensible, if true. Quinn said, “So, buckle up, kids, because the true faces of HWE are running the show, and our first order of business is to reveal tonight's main event. It'll be our opponents this Sunday, the men we'll pulverise and run out this company, Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd in a 3-on-1 handicap match against DISORDER.” The crowd booed, before HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd came to the stage. Kidd said that Quinn and Silva could put them in whatever match they liked but it wouldn't stop them getting to HWE Fallout this Sunday. Chambers added, “You two have an ass kicking coming to you on Sunday. But, you know what, since you're out here and so are we, I say we deliver it right now!” The crowd exploded as Chambers and Kidd began down the ramp, but as they approached ringside, Silva took the microphone and said that if Chambers and Kidd laid a finger on them tonight, Chambers would be stripped of the HWE Championship and they'd both be fired. Quinn then said, “That's right, lads. You don't get to do whatever you want tonight, and you certainly aren't getting the kind of molly-coddling old Ozzy gives ya, either. So, since you seem so okay with a 3-on-2 handicap match, let's make it more interesting. See, we didn't appreciate The Cosa Nostra coming to help you last week. We wanna see what you two can do without help. So, to make sure nobody helps you tonight, your match with DISORDER will be held inside a Steel Cage!” The crowd booed again, as Silva wished Chambers and Kidd an insincere “good luck” and his music hit.

The Cosa Nostra (Vito Moretti and Aldo Rossi, with Lucky Lorenzo) defeated “The Trendsetter” Cody Olson and Orlando Young in 7:41 by pinfall following Omerta to Young. During the match, Todd Brown noted that, by virtue of winning the Contenders Tournament last week, The Cosa Nostra would challenge HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction at HWE Fallout this Sunday. Towards the end of the match, Deep South Destruction appeared from the crowd and attacked Lorenzo at ringside. Tarver ran Lorenzo into the ring post, before he and Fury put the boots to him. Moretti and Rossi, noticing the assault, came to Lorenzo's aid and ran Tarver and Fury off. After the match, Moretti and Rossi went to the outside to help Lorenzo to his feet and aid him to the back.

Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed “The Ice Man” Silas Sullivan about his match with Ozerov this Sunday at HWE Fallout. Sullivan vowed to show the world that he was the most dominant man in HWE on Sunday, but said that he didn't want to wait until Sunday to beat someone up and was looking for an opponent tonight. Suddenly, “The New Enigma” Noah Prince stepped into frame. Prince said, “Allow me to introduce myself: You are standing in the presence of Noah Prince. Now, Prince heard that you were issuing a challenge and Prince loves a good challenge, so he gladly accepts.” Sullivan smiled and said, “Good. Then I can use you to show Ozerov what's gonna happen to him on Sunday.” As Sullivan stormed off, Prince looked at Romero and said, “My, my, my. That's one angry young man. I think our Ice Man needs to learn to chill out.” Romero sniggered, Prince winked at her, and walked away.

“The New Enigma” Noah Prince defeated “The Ice Man” Silas Sullivan in 11:39 by pinfall following The Undoing. Towards the end of the match, Prince had Sullivan down and was on the top rope about to hit The Undoing when Sullivan shoved the referee into the ropes. Prince planted onto the turnbuckle as the referee toppled out of the ring. Sullivan climbed to the top rope, looking for a top rope Icepick when Ozerov hit the ring, pulled Sullivan down and blasted him with The Excruciator. As Ozerov went to ringside and threw the referee back into the ring, Prince stood up on the top rope and hit The Undoing for the pinfall and the win. After the match, Ozerov raised Prince's hand on the ramp as Sullivan seethed inside the ring. From ringside, Todd Brown said that after being sucker punched and attacked from behind by Sullivan in recent weeks, Ozerov got a measure of revenge tonight. Michael Sanders replied that in the process he had enraged Sullivan, who he'd have to deal with on Sunday at HWE Fallout.

Backstage, Vincent Crashman approached “The Hunter” Chris Jackson and asked about facing Brodie Wolfe tonight before he challenges Elijah Davenport for the HWE International Championship this Sunday. Jackson talked about Wolfe assaulting him last week, and said that he owed Wolfe payback, adding, “And when I'm done with that meat mountain tonight, I'll give Elijah Davenport the ass-kicking he's had coming to him since birth.” Jackson went to leave, but Crashman asked if he'd heard from Ezra Jax, who he asked to be in his corner this Sunday to even the odds. Jackson said that he'd rather not talk about it, adding that his offer stood, but in the meantime, he had to take care of business himself.

(Commercial Break)

“The Hunter” Chris Jackson came to the ring for his match. HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport, his wife Dakota, and “The Loch Ness Mauler” Brodie Wolfe came to the stage. Davenport had a microphone and said that all he'd heard this week was how much of a disadvantage Jackson was at on Sunday with Brodie Wolfe in Davenport's corner. Davenport said, “It's not my fault you have no friends, and it's certainly not my fault Ezra Jax won't talk to you after what you did. Having said that, I don't want you to have any excuses when I beat you on Sunday. So, I spoke to Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn just now and made them a proposition which they agreed to. It's simple, Chris: if you win this match, Brodie Wolfe will be banned from ringside on Sunday. But if Brodie wins, our match will be No Disqualifications. Which means that if Brodie – or anyone else, for that matter – wishes to get involved, it's perfectly legal. But either way, Brodie Wolfe or no Brodie Wolfe, I can beat you on my own!” Davenport then led Wolfe to the ring and the match started.

“The Loch Ness Mauler” Brodie Wolfe (with HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport and Dakota) defeated “The Hunter” Chris Jackson in 12:58 by pinfall following the Uranage. As a result, the International Championship match this Sunday will be No Disqualifications. Jackson fought valiantly, but Wolfe's inhuman strength was too much. Towards the end, Jackson gained momentum after a double axe handle from the top rope which staggered Wolfe. He kicked Wolfe in the gut and went for the Pedigree when Elijah jumped on the apron. Jackson went to confront Elijah, who dropped back down, allowing Wolfe to get back to his feet and blast Jackson with the Uranage. After the match, Davenport arrogantly entered the ring, put his foot on Jackson's chest and raised the title into the air as the fans booed. Backstage, “The Groundbreaker” Ezra Jax was watching on a monitor when Billie Romero approached and asked if he had any intention of helping Jackson this Sunday. Jax said nothing and walked away. Back in the ring, Davenport berated an unconscious Jackson, telling him he'd never tear down the Davenport Dynasty.

Backstage, medical staff were examining Lucky Lorenzo as Vito Moretti and Aldo Rossi paced angrily. Suddenly, Connor Quinn entered the room, causing Moretti and Rossi to immediately get angry. Quinn said, “I suggest you step back if you know what's good for ya. I'm in charge tonight, goons.” Lorenzo nodded for them to stand down, and Quinn approached him and said that he was just coming to check on Lorenzo. Lorenzo said that he was fine and had taken worse beatings, and Quinn replied, “I'm happy to hear that. I'd hate for you to miss your match tonight.” Quinn went to leave but Lorenzo asked what he was talking about. Quinn smiled and said, “Didn't I tell ya? Y'see, Deep South Destruction did me and Alfonso a favor last week by helping us kick Corey and Kenny's arses before you and your goons interfered and messed it up. Now, I promised that I'd return the favor and, with my new position tonight, I let them name what they wanted. And what they wanted was a match with you!” The fans booed, as Moretti told Lorenzo that they'd have his back, but Quinn interjected, “I'm afraid not, lads. You see, I can't have people interference in matches. So, I'm afraid you two are banned from ringside.” Moretti and Rossi protested, but Quinn added, “And, if you do interfere, you'll lose your title shot on Sunday.” Quinn smirked, wished Lorenzo luck, and left.

HWE Women's Champion Harley Clay came to the ring and took a microphone. Clay said that she'd defend her championship against “The Outlier” Serena Bates on Sunday, but that she had a question for Bates before that happened and invited Bates to the ring. After a moment, Bates' music hit and she came out to a massive ovation. After Bates entered the ring, Clay circled her a few times and said, “For three weeks, I've told you that I'm like nobody you've ever faced. I've told you that you won't submit me to win this HWE Women's Championship on Sunday. I've even shown you that you're not the only one who can use that Serena Lock to get people to tap out. Now, I know when I first told you all of that that you doubted me. But I think I've proven my point, so the question is: do you doubt me now? Hopefully, you've finally realized that what I'm telling you is the truth. That I am unlike anybody you've ever come up against; that I will not submit to you on Sunday; and that you can't beat me.” Clay cackled until Bates snatched her microphone and said, “Harley, that would've been an impactful speech if I hadn't heard it before. I've heard that speech my entire life. You're not the first one to tell me I can't do something. You're not the first one to think you're different from the others. You're not the first one to tell me you won't submit to the Serena Lock. But, you are the next one I prove wrong. I'll hand it to you, Harley: you know how to play mind games. And, yeah, you've had me looking inwards over the last couple of weeks. You've had me believing that, maybe, you are different to those who came before you. But, as I stand here and listen to your speech and look in your eyes, I realize that it doesn't matter. The faces may change but the outcome never does. It hasn't worked, Harley. The mind games haven't worked. And this Sunday, there are no more mind games to play. There are no more words to be said. This Sunday, reality comes knocking, and when it does it'll have a question for you: will you tap... or will your ankle snap? Tap or snap, Harley?” Bates dropped the microphone and left the ring as Clay watched on, her face a mixture of fury and fear as she let out a loud scream and stomped her feet in fury.

The screen went static for a moment before The Cult (Deelon Mack, with Jakob and Joseph) appeared, enveloped by darkness but for a single lightbulb illuminating their faces. Mack said that the plan may have been disrupted but hadn't been derailed. He said that their house stood as united as ever and was ready to avenge the injustice that had occurred. He added, “All sinners must pay the price for their actions and that price is pain. It's coming,” and laughed maniacally before the screen went static again.

(Commercial Break)

HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction (Jake Tarver & Johnny Fury) defeated Lucky Lorenzo in 9:07 by pinfall following the Baldwin Blues in a 2-on-1 handicap match. Lorenzo tried to fight the odds, and would occasional get the upperhand but the numbers were too much. After the match, Tarver took a microphone and told Lorenzo that they'd demolish The Cosa Nostra on Sunday as they'd demolished him tonight. Fury added, “You and your boys can run around playing make-believe gangsters all you want, but there ain't nothing make believe about Deep South Destruction!” Tarver and Fury then raised their arms and the titles in unison.

Footage from earlier this week aired in which Madison Hammer was at a spa receiving a massage treatment. As the masseuse rubbed Hammer's feet, Hammer talked about how she was more of a woman than Livia could dream of being and would prove it by beating her this Sunday at HWE Fallout. As Hammer continued talking about what an “epic win” she'd have at Fallout, Livia entered the room quietly and signalled for the masseuse to leave. Realizing the massage had stopped, Hammer looked around and screamed when she saw Livia, who jumped on her. Livia attacked Hammer with right hands until Hammer raked her eyes and ran from the room in nothing but a towel.

Miss Nicole's music hit and she began making her way to the ring for a match when “The Kyoto Crippler” Yuku Teshima appeared and attacked her. Teshima put the boots to Nicole on the ramp before hitting the ring. From ringside, Todd Brown noted that Teshima was about to cripple Sidney Kay with a chair last week – as she did with Kaida Sano two weeks before – when Sano returned to confront her. Michael Sanders questioned not only her decision to return that quickly but also to challenge Teshima to a match at HWE Fallout, given the condition of Sano's elbow. Teshima took a microphone and screamed in Japanese before, in English, demanding Kaida Sano fight her. After a moment, Sano's music hit and she ran to the ring with her elbow still bandaged. Sano and Teshima engaged in a furious fist-fight until Sano got the upperhand. She hit Teshima with a suplex and went to the top rope, but as she leapt for The Distresser, Teshima rolled from the ring and Sano hit her elbow on the mat. Sano screamed in pain as Teshima yanked the time keeper out of his chair, folded it, and slid it into the ring. As Sano gingerly pulled herself to her feet with her good arm and turned around, Teshima blasted her in her injured elbow with the chair. Sano writhed on the mat as officials rushed into the ring to stop Teshima, who eventually left the ring. From ringside, Todd Brown commended Sano on her guts, but questioned whether she'd let anger cloud her judgement. Sanders said that Sano absolutely had and that the match should be called off for her own good. Officials then helped Sano from the ring as the crowd chanted her name.

From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders talked about the night so far, with Brown calling it a hijacking and an abuse of power. Sanders said that even he couldn't agree with how Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn went about getting rid of HWE President Oswald Chapman tonight. Brown noted that Chapman was tricked into leaving tonight but would be back this Sunday for HWE Fallout, before they reviewed the card:
- Madison Hammer vs. Livia
- HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction vs. The Cosa Nostra
- Silas Sullivan vs. Ozerov
- Chris Jackson vs. HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport (with Dakota and Brodie Wolfe) in a No Disqualification match
- HWE Women's Champion Harley Clay vs. Serena Bates
- Kaida Sano vs. Yuku Teshima
- HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd vs. Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn

(Commercial Break)

HWE Champion Corey Chambers & “The Oklahoma Pitbull” Kenny Kidd defeated DISORDER (Takara Hidaka, Toru Nagata and Koji Goto) in 13:25 by pinfall in a 3-on-2 Handicap match. Throughout the match, DISORDER used the numbers game, putting Chambers and Kidd against almost impossible odds. Towards the end, Kidd had been tied up in the ropes and Chambers was down after suffering Entropy by the trio. Hidaka and Nagata climbed out of the cage, and Goto was supposed to follow, but decided not to. Instead, he began slapping Chambers and mocking him as Chambers got to his feet. Unbeknownst to Goto, Kidd had untangled himself and was in the corner behind him. As Goto turned around to show off, Kidd blasted the Pitbull Stampede, sending Goto into Chambers who hit the Corey Cutter for the win. After the match, the referee opened the cage door and DISORDER retrieved Goto, as Chambers and Kidd celebrated. However, with their music blaring, the crowd cheering, and their attention turned to DISORDER who were scurrying up the ramp, they didn't notice Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn scaling the cage behind them. Silva and Quinn attacked Chambers and Kidd, putting the boots to them as the fans booed. Quinn pulled out a chain and padlock from his pocket and chained the cage door shut. He dragged Kidd to the corner and began stomping on him. Meanwhile, Silva applied the sharpshooter to Chambers for several moments. When he let go, he pulled two pairs of handcuffs from his pocket and handcuffed Chambers to the wall of cage. As Quinn continued his assault on Kidd, Silva hammered a defenceless Chambers and hit him with a step-up enziguri. Quinn told Silva to put Kidd in the sharpshooter, and as he did, stomped at Kidd and elbow-dropped him numerous times. Chambers regained consciousness and was trying to break free of the handcuffs but Silva noticed, let go of Kidd and blasted Chambers with a kick to the head which knocked him out. Chambers slumped against the wall of the cage, unable to help Kidd, who Quinn dragged to his feet and rammed head-first into the cage several times until Kidd was bleeding. Quinn, again, picked Kidd up and hit him with the GFY. With Kidd unconscious, Quinn wiped Kidd's blood onto his hand and smeared on his chest before he and Silva raised their arms in unison, the crowd booed heavily, and HWE ShowDown went off air.

HWE ShowDown Results, Feb. 13, 2019: Cosa Nostra help Chambers and Kidd even the odds in 4-on-2 assault

HWE ShowDown Results for Feb. 13, 2019, LIVE! from the HWE Arena in Brooklyn, N.Y.

From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders welcomed everyone to HWE ShowDown as “Broken Generation” by Of Mice and Men played and the camera panned across sections of cheering fans. They discussed last week, in which after alleging a conspiracy against them by HWE management, Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn found out they'd be facing HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd, who they'd sent to hospital with another attack earlier in the night, at HWE Fallout. Brown noted that tonight, Silva and Quinn would face Cedric White and Evan Alexander, while Chambers and Kidd took on HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction.

Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn came to the ring and took microphones. Silva talked about HWE management trying to shut them down after they “lifted the lid” on “the great conspiracy” last week. He mentioned that nobody did anything when they were robbed at HWE WrestleTopia by Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd, adding that the HWE Championship should still be his and Quinn should be the number-one contender. Quinn said that the reason HWE President Oswald Chapman tweeted about them so quickly after what they said last week was because he knew he was was being exposed. “Ol' Ozzy has his vision for this company, and that vision has Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd as the faces of HWE. We're not part of that vision. Well, we weren't. But then we made sure they couldn't ignore us like they tried to. They couldn't have their little fantasy match at Fallout like they wanted to. We will not be ignored. Not by anyone.” As the crowd booed, Quinn continued, “And we know that Ozzy, like all of you, thinks that Corey and Kenny are gonna be the fairytale heroes who make the bad men shut up at Fallout. And, while yes, we are bad men, this is no fairytale. At Fallout, you're gonna watch us demolish your heroes. Ozzy will watch his vision crumble before his eyes. An' everyone who ignored us will have to deal with us. Like it or not, when we're done with Corey and Kenny at Fallout, we'll be all you have left.” Suddenly, Cedric White and Evan Alexander's music hit and they came to the stage with microphones. Alexander said that they'd had enough of listening to Silva and Quinn's crap, and White added that they weren't the victims of a conspiracy, but they would be the victims of an ass kicking. The fans cheered, as White and Alexander began down the ramp and the show crashed to commercial.

“The Embodiment of Excellence” Alfonso Silva & “The Infamous One” Connor Quinn defeated Cedric White & Evan Alexander in 13:08 by submission when Alexander submitted to Silva's sharpshooter. Towards the end, Quinn broke up White's pinfall, prompting Alexander to enter the ring and clothesline Quinn over the top rope. White officially tagged Alexander, who got on his shoulders for the splash, but Quinn pulled White's legs and yanked him from the ring. Alexander landed on his feet but twisted his knee, allowing Silva to lock in the sharpshooter for the submission. After the match, Silva kept the hold applied despite the bell ringing. White knocked Quinn down outside and cam to save Alexander. But, as White unloaded a flurry of right hands on Silva, Quinn hit White in the back with a chair. The fans booed as Silva and Quinn put the boots to White, until HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd appeared. Chambers and Kidd hit the ring and picked Silva and Quinn off of White, Chambers taking Silva as Kidd went for Quinn. Kidd knocked Quinn down and he slid under the bottom rope. Chambers was about to go for the Corey Cutter on Silva, but Quinn pulled Silva from the ring and they backed off up the ramp together as Chambers and Kidd seethed in the ring.

Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed “The Outlier” Serena Bates. Romero mentioned HWE Women's Champion Harley Clay attacking Morgana Payne last week - after Bates had submitted Payne with the Serena Lock – and putting her in Clay's own version of the hold. Romero asked if Bates had been thrown off by Clay's antics with their title match set for HWE Fallout. Bates said, “Clearly, Harley's good at mind games. She wants me to believe she won't submit to the Serena Lock at Fallout, and she wants me to know that she's unlike anyone I've ever faced before. Well, I don't play mind games, what you see it what you get. Harley may be unlike anyone I've ever faced, but I'm The Outlier. I'm the toughest bitch you'll ever meet in your life, and I don't make empty promises. So when I say that Harley Clay will tap out at Fallout, you can bank on it.” Bates walked away as the crowd cheered.

Ozerov defeated Orlando Young in 4:39 by pinfall following the Excruciator. After the match, Vincent Crashman entered the ring with a microphone and replayed “The Ice Man” Silas Sullivan's comments from last week, in which he compared himself and Ozerov to raging bulls, but said that there was only turf enough for one of them and vowed to put Ozerov on ice. Ozerov said that after Sullivan sucker punched him last week, the only bull Sullivan resembled was a castrated one. Ozerov said that if Sullivan wanted to find out who was dominant, he'd fight Ozerov at HWE Fallout. Suddenly, Sullivan appeared behind Ozerov and attacked him, hitting him with The Icepick. Sullivan then snatched Crashman's microphone, accepted the challenge, and promised to send Ozerov back to Russia at Fallout.

Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction (Jake Tarver and Johnny Fury) about the Finals of the Contenders Tournament between The Cosa Nostra and The Cult tonight. Tarver said that they didn't care who won, they just wanted a fight. Fury said that the outcome at Fallout would be the same as it would be in their match against HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd tonight – they'd leave victorious.

(Commercial Break)

From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders discussed the HWE Tag Team Title Contenders Tournament before reviewing footage of the Semi-Finals over the last two weeks on ShowDown: First, The Cult beat Cedric White and Evan Alexander to advance to the Finals, and then last week, The Cosa Nostra overcame DISORDER to earn their place. Brown noted that the winners of the Finals would challenge HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction at HWE Fallout.

The Cosa Nostra (Vito Moretti and Aldo Rossi, with Lucky Lorenzo) defeated The Cult (Jakob and Joseph, with Deelon Mack) in 16:01 by pinfall following Omerta to Joseph in the Finals of the HWE Tag Team Title Contenders Tournament. Towards the end, Rossi had Joseph covered when Mack got on the apron to distract the referee. Lorenzo ran around the ring, pulled Mack down and threw him into the barricade. Back in the ring, Jakob attacked Rossi until Moretti came to the aid of his partner, tossing Jakob from the ring before he and Rossi hit Joseph with Omerta for the pinfall and the win. After the match, The Cosa Nostra celebrated until HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction hit the ring and attacked them. They threw Rossi out and knocked Lorenzo down, before clotheslining Moretti over the top rope. Finally, they turned back to Lorenzo and planted him with Baldwin Blues before leaving the ring to boos.

Backstage, “The Hunter” Chris Jackson approached “The Groundbreaker” Ezra Jax, who was sat in silence in the locker room. Jackson said that he'd come to apologize. He said he was trying to help Jax get a fair rematch for the HWE International Championship last week but admitted he screwed up. When Jax didn't answer, Jackson continued, “So, look, I've invoked my match against Elijah Davenport at Fallout. Now, I know you have no reason to help me after last week. And I'll go it alone, but with that big oaf in his corner and that little gold-digger on his arm, I don't stand much chance by myself. And I know you want that Title away from him like I do, so I'm asking you to be in my corner at Fallout. I need you, man. And, look, to make it up to you, when I become International Champion, you'll be the first one to get a title shot.” When Jax remained silent, Jackson sighed, told him to think about it and left.

Dakota Davenport was in the ring with a microphone and introduced her husband, HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport. As Davenport came to the ring, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that Davenport still had that title because of his wife and the monstrous man who helped him defeat Ezra Jax last week. Michael Sanders told Brown not to forget Chris Jackson letting his temper get the better of him and causing a distraction so that said interference could happen. Davenport came to the ring, kissed his wife and took the microphone. He said, “It's glorious when a plan comes together. Last week, I proved that I am always the smartest guy in the room. But, I also proved that I'm the bravest. You see, not only had I been coerced into giving Ezra Jax an undeserved title shot, but I went into that match knowing a maniac, Chris Jackson, was stood at ringside. That maniac was watching my wife to make sure she didn't interfere – as if she would – and waiting for a chance to attack me. And what did I do? What did I do to remain YOUR International Champion? I risked my life. I spat in Chris Jackson's face because I knew he couldn't help himself, I knew his temper would get the better of him. And it did, and when it did, the plan came together. I said I had an insurance policy, and if I needed to use it, I would. And I knew none of you would mind because you want me to be your International Champion!” The crowd booed heavily, but Davenport continued. “So, let me introduce you to that insurance policy. The man who ensured justice was served last week, who insured The Crown Prince remained your champion. From Inverness, Scotland, 'The Loch Ness Mauler' Brodie Wolfe!” Wolfe made his way to the ring to heavy boos and stood behind the Davenports. Elijah said, “When I saw this man tearing the heads off of poor losers in rings in Scotland, I had my father get out his cheque book and hire him as my private bodyguard. He ensured that Chris Jackson didn't cost me the International Championship last week, and he'll be by my side to make sure that the Davenport Dynasty remains in tact at Fallout.” The fans booed again, until “The Hunter” Chris Jackson's music hit and Jackson came to the ring with a microphone. Jackson congratulated Davenport on finding someone who didn't want to rip his head off, adding, “But even that meat mountain won't stop what happens at Fallout. When I get you in the middle of this ring and lock in the Hunter's Curse, your little dynasty will fall and I'll take the HWE International Championship.” As the crowd cheered, Davenport began looking behind Jackson and said, “You know, it's funny. I don't see your friend, Ezra Jax, out here. Why is that? Oh, that's right, he's not by your side because he knows that you cost him his International Title shot. You fell victim to your own temper and lost your backup because I'm smart enough to push your buttons. I'm smarter than you, Chris, and I'll prove it again when I defend my title against you at Fallout... that is, if you make it to Fallout.” Davenport stepped aside and Wolfe booted Jackson in the face. He picked Jackson up and hit him with the Uranage, and as the fans chanted for Ezra Jax, Davenport told Wolfe to hold Jackson. On the HeadlineTron, Ezra Jax was seen watching the events on a monitor. When Jax rose from his seat, the fans began cheering and Davenport looked nervous in the ring. But, when Jax picked up his bags and left the room, Davenport smiled. Davenport grabbed Jackson's face and said he'd never take the title, before DDT'ing him onto the it. Elijah, Dakota and Wolfe stood tall as the fans booed heavily.

Backstage, Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn approached HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction and asked if they could talk. Hesitantly, Tarver and Fury agreed and they walked away together.

HWE Women's Champion Harley Clay defeated Miss Nicole in 8:50 by submission in a non-title match. Before the match, “The Outlier” Serena Bates came to ringside and sat on a chair to observe the match. Towards the end, Clay set up for Exquisite Trauma but stopped and looked at Bates, before grabbing Nicole's ankle and, again, applying her own version of the Serena Lock while staring at Bates. Nicole submitted and the referee called for the bell, but Clay held on. Bates shot into the ring, at which point Clay released the hold, and they went nose to nose, exchanging words. After a moment, Clay pulled her fist back and Bates flinched, ready to fight, but Clay simply smiled, grabbed her title and blew Bates a kiss as she left the ring. Bates stood at the ropes, a little bewildered as Clay walked up the ramp.

Backstage, Vincent Crashman interviewed “The Brazilian Brawler” Livia, wanting her response to Madison Hammer's comments from last week that Livia wasn't a “real woman” and that Hammer put her in place at HWE WrestleTopia. Livia called Hammer a disgrace to real women everywhere, and said that if Hammer wanted to prove she was a real woman, she'd meet Livia in the ring at HWE Fallout. Suddenly, Hammer attacked Livia from behind, slamming her a production crate. As Livia crumbled to the ground, Hammer leaned over her, accepted the challenge and walked away.

From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders reviewed footage from last week, where Sidney Kay stepped to “The Kyoto Crippler” Yuku Teshima, upset at Teshima injuring Kaida Sano the week before and ready to fight Teshima. Teshima would lay Kay her out with Blunt Force Trauma, prompting Kay to challenge for a match tonight. Kay's music hit and she began making her way down the ramp, but suddenly was attacked from behind by Teshima. Teshima kicked Kay down the ramp, before dragging her up, ramming her head-first into the steps and tossing her into the ring. Teshima then stalked around the ring, grabbed a steel chair, slid it into the ring and followed it in. Kay tried to get up, but Teshima booted her in the head and wrapped the chair around her ankle before climbing to the middle rope. Todd Brown noted that Teshima did this to Kaida Sano's ankle two weeks ago and called for someone to do something. Teshima screamed, but before she could jump, Kaida Sano's music hit. The crowd exploded as Sano came out, her elbow bandaged, and ran down to the ring. Teshima attacked her as she slid in, but Sano battled back and eventually dropkicked Teshima, who fell through the ropes to the floor. As Teshima got her bearings on the outside, officials ran out to prevent the situation devolving further, and keep them apart. But back in the ring, Sano had climbed to the top rope and leapt onto Teshima and the officials, knocking everyone down. She pummelled Teshima with right hands, before Teshima brought a knee up, striking Sano's damaged elbow. In pain, Sano rolled off of Teshima, who backtracked up the ramp. Sano re-entered the ring, took a microphone and, in broken English, challenged Teshima to a match at HWE Fallout. On the ramp, Teshima nodded before screaming at Sano in Japanese.

Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed HWE Champion Corey Chambers and “The Oklahoma Pitbull” Kenny Kidd. Kidd said that Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn's time was running out, adding “You got two sneak attacks, but that's all you're getting. We're wise to your games, boys. We're onto you, and we're coming for your asses.” Chambers added, “Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn can crow about conspiracies. They can say we robbed 'em at WrestleTopia if it helps them sleep at night. They can attack us from behind, send us to hospital. And they can run away like they did tonight. But, you can only run so far, boys. Because Fallout is coming, and we're coming for you. ” The crowd cheered as Chambers and Kidd walked away.

HWE Champion Corey Chambers and “The Oklahoma Pitbull” Kenny Kidd defeated HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction (Jake Tarver and Johnny Fury) in 17:26 by disqualification when Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn interfered, attacking Chambers and Kidd. After the match, despite initially seeming annoyed at being cost the match, Deep South Destruction smiled and shook hands with Silva and Quinn before the four began beating on Chambers and Kidd. From ringside, Michael Sanders noted that this must have been what Silva and Quinn wanted to talk about earlier tonight. Brown said that, clearly, Silva and Quinn wanted to weaken their opponents at Fallout and had hired the Tag Team Champions to help with that. As Tarver held Kidd as Quinn punched him repeatedly, Fury stomped at Chambers who was locked in Silva's sharpshooter. Suddenly, though, The Cosa Nostra hit the ring and the crowd exploded. Moretti, Rossi and Lorenzo helped Kidd and Chambers fight back and eventually they cleared the ring and stood tall as Silva, Quinn, and Deep South Destruction regrouped on the ramp.

HWE ShowDown Results, Feb. 6, 2019: Chambers and Kidd seek revenge on Quinn and Silva

HWE ShowDown Results for Feb. 6, 2019, LIVE! from the HWE Arena in Brooklyn, N.Y.

From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders welcomed everyone to HWE ShowDown as “Broken Generation” by Of Mice and Men played and the camera panned across sections of cheering fans. They discussed the conclusion of last week's HWE ShowDown in which Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn laid waste to HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd moments before they were to sign the contract for their Title match at HWE Fallout. Kidd was DDT'd onto his own car, which Quinn had smashed with a baseball bat, while Chambers was subjected to Silva's sharpshooter as the show closed.

“The Oklahoma Pitbull” Kenny Kidd's music hit and he came to the stage to an ovation, before HWE Champion Corey Chambers' music hit and the crowd exploded as they walked to the ring together, taking a microphone each. Kidd said that everybody knew what happened last week. He said that although they'd heard that Quinn and Silva were going to explain themselves tonight, they weren't interested. Chambers said, “We didn't come here to listen, we came here to fight. So Silva, Quinn, get your asses out here and take the whooping you've had coming to you all week.” Chambers and Kidd dropped their microphones and readied to fight, but nothing happened. Chambers picked up his microphone again and threatened that if Silva and Quinn wouldn't come and fight them, he and Kidd would hunt them down. With nobody appearing, Chambers and Kidd left the ring and began up the entrance ramp when, out of nowhere, Silva and Quinn appeared from the sides of the ramp and Silva attacked Chambers while Quinn jumped Kidd. Silva rammed Chambers head-first into one of the video walls which comprised the entrance, and Chambers fell backwards, unconscious. On the other side of the stage, Kidd was trying to mount a comeback but Quinn knee'd him in the gut and DDT'd him on the ramp. From ringside, Todd Brown pointed out that it was just a week ago that Kidd was DDT'd onto his own car. Quinn picked a lifeless Kidd up and ran him off the stage sending Kidd crashing through a table. As Silva and Quinn stood tall on the ramp and the fans booed them heavily, officials ran out to check on both Chambers and Kidd.

During the break, medical officials brought out stretchers for Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd and stretchered them out of the arena as the fans watched on in concerned silence. At ringside Todd Brown noted that Silva and Quinn were due for an in-ring interview with Vincent Crashman tonight, but wasn't sure anyone wanted to see them again tonight after another heinous assault.

“The Ice Man” Silas Sullivan defeated “The New Enigma” Noah Prince in 7:55 by pinfall following the Icepick. During the match, from ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders discussed the rivalry developing between Sullivan and Ozerov, which has seen two pull-apart brawls. After the match, Michael Sanders entered the ring and asked Sullivan what his problem with Ozerov was. Sullivan compared himself and Ozerov to raging bulls, but said that there was only room for one bull in HWE. He added that, while Ozerov had put up a good fight until now, in the end he'd go where everyone else who crossed Sullivan did: “on ice.” Suddenly, Ozerov's music hit and he came to the ring and went nose-to-nose. Sullivan smiled, and seemed to back down, before sucker punching Ozerov and blasting him with the Icepick.

Backstage, Billie Romero approached HWE President Oswald Chapman and asked what he planned to do in response to another heinous assault on Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd by Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn. Chapman said that his primary concern right now was getting a medical update on Chambers and Kidd, adding that they'd been taken to hospital for examination and he was waiting on a phone call.

The Cosa Nostra (Lucky Lorenzo and Vito Moretti, with Aldo Rossi) defeated DISORDER (Takara Hidaka and Toru Nagata, with Koji Goto) in 10:43 by pinfall, following Omerta to Nagata, to advance to the Finals of the HWE Tag Team Championship Contenders Tournament. During the match, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that Deelon Mack's faction The Cult advanced to the Finals last week with a victory over Cedric White and Evan Alexander, and would meet the winners of this match next week. HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction were seen watching the match on a monitor in the locker room. After the match, Michael Sanders entered the ring with a microphone and asked Lorenzo about facing The Cult in the Tournament Finals next week. Lorenzo said, “Y'know, as I look around the tag team division, I see a lot of different relationships. Brothers. Childhood friends. Two men, like (current champions) Deep South Destruction, who's bond is as simple as a mutual enjoyment of hurtin' people. So, what about us? What about The Cosa Nostra? What's our bond? We're not blood relations and we didn't run around in diapers together, but this group's blood line goes back generations. Our ancestors, our namesake, were men who fought and died because they believed in a cause. A brotherhood who stood side-by-side. Men who'd die to protect the one standing next to them. You may not have liked what they did, or how they did it, but you gotta respect a man who fights for a cause. We're brothers, not blood or circumstance but by choice. Brothers who live and die together. We fight for a cause, and right now our cause is the HWE Tag Team Championships. And next week, our cause will rip straight through The Cult's church.” The crowd cheered as Lorenzo, Moretti and Rossi began celebrating. Suddenly, the lights went out and The Cult (Deelon Mack, Jakob, and Joseph) appeared on the HeadlineTron. Mack commended Lorenzo on his speech and said, “You may not like to admit it, brother Lorenzo, but our groups aren't so different. See, my brothers believe in a cause, too. They follow my lead because they know I'll take them to the promised land. Next week, brother Lorenzo, brother Moretti, brother Rossi, you'll feel the power of my message. And maybe then, brother Lorenzo, you'll find out what happens to your so-called brotherhood when your leadership fails and your men realise that you're just a man. But there's where we're different. Because I'm no man. And next week, brothers Cosa Nostra... you'll understand.” Mack laughed, before the feed cut and the lights came back up.

Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed HWE Women's Champion Harley Clay. Romero brought up Clay defiantly telling her number-one contender, Serena Bates, that she wouldn't submit to the Serena Lock last week, but asked what would happen if she did. Clay looked at Romero and said, “What's that s'posed to mean? You think I'm gonna tap out? It's like I told little Serena last week, I'm not like these other nobodies she taps out. Serena Bates has no idea what she's dealing with, and tonight, I'll prove it.” Clay smiled, snapped her bubble gum at Romero, and walked away.

“The Outlier” Serena Bates defeated Morgana Payne by submission in 11:32 when Payne submitted to the Serena Lock. After the match, Bates celebrated until HWE Women's Champion Harley Clay's music hit and she came to the ring. Clay went face-to-face with Bates but, just as it seemed the two would come to blows, Clay blasted Payne - who had just returned to her feet - with Exquisite Trauma. Clay looked at Bates, who was clearly stunned, before grabbing Payne's leg and applying her own version of the Serena Lock. As Payne hit the mat frantically, Clay kept her eyes fixed on Bates. Eventually, Bates pulled Clay off of Payne and the two went nose-to-nose once more. Clay smiled at Bates and left the ring without saying a word. From ringside, Todd Brown called it a “disturbing display”, adding that Bates clearly didn't know what to make of it. Michael Sanders replied, “I think that was the effect Harley Clay was going for.”

Backstage, Dakota Davenport entered her husband, HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport's locker room and asked if he was ready. Davenport said, “You know I'm ready, baby, but is our... 'insurance policy' ready?” Dakota said, “Like a bull ready to spear a matador.” Elijah smiled, asked Dakota to help him strap the title around his waist and she did. They kissed passionately and left the room together.

HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport (with Dakota Davenport) defeated “The Groundbreaker” Ezra Jax (with “The Hunter” Chris Jackson) in 24:06 by pinfall to retain the HWE International Championship. During the match, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that this was a rematch from HWE WrestleTopia, where Dakota helped her husband win the title from Jax. When it seemed Davenport wouldn't agree to a rematch last week, Jackson – the rightful number-one contender – ensured Jax got his rematch tonight. Towards the end, Jax was setting up for the spear when Dakota pulled Elijah from the ring. Jackson came around the ring and threw Elijah back in, before having words with Dakota. Back in the ring, Jax wanted to get at Elijah but the referee made him back up. When Elijah got to his feet, he leaned over the ropes and spat at Jackson. Enraged, jumped in to attack Elijah but the referee stopped him. Dealing with Jackson, the referee missed Jax's spear on Davenport and subsequent cover, which Jackson tried to make him aware of. Out of nowhere, a monstrous man entered the ring, picked Jax off of Davenport and blasted him with a Uranage. He draped Davenport's arm over Jax, left the ring, ran to the other side and pulled Jackson out by his legs before clotheslining him. In the ring, the referee spotted the cover and counted to three. After the match, as the man helped Dakota retrieve Elijah, Todd Brown questioned who he was. Michael Sanders replied that he must be the “insurance policy” Davenport was talking about. With Davenport and company gone, Jackson re-entered the ring to help Jax to his feet, but Jax pushed him away. The two exchanged words, before Jax stormed from the ring, leaving Jackson bemused.

Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed Madison Hammer, and asked why she was fixated with “The Brazilian Brawler” Livia, noting that Hammer interfered in Livia's title match against HWE Women's Champion Harley Clay at WrestleTopia. Hammer said, “Let's get this straight: Livia disrespected me at WrestleTopia, not the other way around. She stepped to me as if she has any right to even speak to me. You see, unlike Livia, I'm a real woman. I'm beautiful, smart, and cunning. I'm not some Brazilian thug who thinks kicking people in the face is acceptable behaviour. What I did at WrestleTopia was simply putting Livia in her place and showing her what a real woman looks like.” Hammer smiled until, suddenly, Livia appeared and attacked her. The two brawled for a moment before officials stormed in and pulled Livia off of Hammer, reminding her she had a match next, as Hammer ran away.

“The Kyoto Crippler” Yuku Teshima defeated “The Brazilian Brawler” Livia in 6:37 by pinfall following Blunt Force Trauma, after Madison Hammer appeared and distracted Livia from ringside, allowing Teshima to take advantage. During the match, from ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders discussed Teshima attacking Kaida Sano last week and the devastating assault on Sano's elbow with a chair which followed. Brown noted that Sano wasn't there, and was due to see doctors for an evaluation on her elbow. After the match, Teshima took a microphone and, in broken English, explained that she was about to become number-one contender to the HWE Women's Championship at WrestleTopia when Kaida Sano dropped an elbow on her pin attempt. She said that last week was simply about sending Sano a message to keep her elbow out of Teshima's business. “It's my destiny to become Women's Champion. Kaida Sano, last week you suffered the consequences of getting in the way of my destiny, just like anyone else who crosses The Kyoto Crippler will.” Teshima smiled when, suddenly, Sidney Kay's music hit. Kay came to the ring, took a microphone and went nose-to-nose with Teshima, saying, “Kaida Sano isn't here tonight, but I am. And my back's not turned like Kaida's was, I'm looking you right in the eye. So, why don't you try and do that to me tonight?” The crowd cheered as Teshima smiled. Just as it seemed the fight would happen, Teshima stepped back before blasting Kay with a vicious gut kick and hitting her with Blunt Force Trauma.

Backstage, “The Embodiment of Excellence” Alfonso Silva and “The Infamous One” Connor Quinn were shown making their way through the arena for their interview.

Vincent Crashman was stood in the ring with a microphone and introduced Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn, who came to the ring to heavy boos. Crashman brought up the two consecutive vile attacks on HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd and asked what their problem was. Quinn smirked and said, “Oh, what, now you all wanna talk about us? Because last week you all didn't care about us. You were too busy salivating over some so-called dream match... and what happened to that?” Silva said that while everyone was celebrating Corey Chambers becoming HWE Champion, and his match with Kenny Kidd at HWE Fallout, the facts were being ignored. Silva claimed that Kidd stole Quinn's spot as number-one contender and Chambers stole the HWE Championship from him. Quinn then said, “Any idiot with half a brain has worked out that we were angry after losing at WrestleTopia, so the real question is why did we join forces? It would've been easy to seek revenge separately, right? But, you see, I did a lot of thinking after WrestleTopia and I came to the realization that Alfonso and I are the victims of the same conspiracy. HWE management showed their hand last week. They showed who they see as the faces of this company when they put the entire machine behind Corey Chambers versus Kenny Kidd. No mention of a rematch for Alfonso. No mention of Connor Quinn. It was made plain that the people in charge of this company see Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd as the faces of HWE. But, that's not the truth. That's an illusion. The real faces of HWE are the two men in this ring right now. So, instead of getting revenge separately, we came together and shattered the illusion this company wants to portray. We pulverised the corporately selected faces. You people call Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd your heroes, but have you ever wondered why? I'll tell you why: you're sheep being led by the nose by this company. Last week, we proved that your so-called heroes are nothin' when they're put up against real men like Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn. What happened last week, and what happened earlier tonight, was simple business. Like a dog in the park, we simply marked our territory. So, I've got some bad news for ya: Corey Chambers versus Kenny Kidd won't be happenin' at Fallout. I said last week that I was gonna make Kenny Kidd's life miserable, and I'll do that by making sure he never gets that title shot. And since my friend Alfonso has eliminated our so-called HWE Champion as well, here's what's gonna happen at Fallout: Alfonso Silva versus Connor Quinn to crown the rightful HWE Champion!” Quinn and Silva both laughed, before HWE President Oswald Chapman came to the stage with a microphone. Chapman said, “First of all, Connor, you two don't make matches around here. Now, I don't know what show you were part of, but Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd didn't steal anything at WrestleTopia...” Quinn interrupted, “Oh, here we go.  You can't have anyone telling the truth about your boys, can ya, Ozzy? You're out here to censor us because you know we're right and you know that we know the conspiracy starts at the top.” Chapman scoffed and said, “There's no conspiracy against either of you. You lost, deal with it. But one thing you said just now was true: Corey Chambers won't be facing Kenny Kidd at HWE Fallout on February 24, and I'll tell you why. You see, I was ready to come out here and punish you two for your disgusting actions, but then I got a phone call from the hospital. A phone call from Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd. They're doing okay, but they wanted to talk to me. They wanted to inform me that they're postponing their title match. But, they did ask me to do them a favour. A match. And I agreed. So, At HWE Fallout, it'll be Alfonso Silva and Connor Quinn against HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd!” The crowd exploded, as Silva said, “That's fine by us. You tell your lapdogs that at Fallout, we're gonna finish what we started last week.” Chapman said, “Why don't you tell them yourselves...” Chapman stepped aside and, as he did, HWE Champion Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd stormed out from the back. The fans exploded as Chambers and Kidd made a beeline for the ring. From ringside, Todd Brown exclaimed, “Oh my god, they're back! Even a visit to the hospital won't stop Corey Chambers and Kenny Kidd coming to come get them some!” Chambers and Kidd hit the ring but, as they did, Silva and Quinn made a hasty retreat, through the crowd and into the stands. Chambers and Kidd stood tall in the ring, beckoning them to come back and fight as Silva and Quinn looked nervous in the stands and the crowd was erupting with cheers.

HWE ShowDown Results, Jan. 30, 2019: Silva and Quinn lay waste to Chambers and Kidd

HWE ShowDown Results Jan. 30, 2019, LIVE! from the HWE Arena in Brooklyn, N.Y.

From ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders welcomed everyone to the premiere of HWE ShowDown as “Broken Generation” by Of Mice and Men played and the camera panned across sections of cheering fans. They discussed the HWE WrestleTopia pay-per-view last Sunday, in which Corey Chambers became the new HWE Champion, defeating Alfonso Silva in the main event. Brown mentioned that “The Oklahoma Pitbull” Kenny Kidd earned the right to challenge for the HWE Title at HWE Fallout by beating Connor Quinn earlier that night, and noted that Kidd and Chambers would meet tonight for a contract signing ahead of the match. Sanders said he had it on good authority that both Silva and Quinn were furious and would be here tonight as well.

In the ring, ring announcer Robin Leyva introduced new HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport, who sauntered to the ring with his wife, Dakota, on his arm. Davenport said that he did what he said he'd do at HWE WrestleTopia by defeating Ezra Jax to become HWE International Champion, adding that he and Dakota celebrated “all night long.” He said that he had to have a few backstage personnel fired because the confetti and fireworks that went off during Corey Chambers' celebration were supposed to be for him, and apologised to the crowd that they didn't get to celebrate his victory as they wanted to on Sunday. The crowd booed, but Davenport ignored them and said that he wouldn't let his “billions” of fans down, adding that it was time to celebrate his victory in style before calling for the confetti and fireworks. Suddenly, “The Groundbreaker” Ezra Jax's music hit and he marched to the ring. Jax took a microphone and said that nobody wanted to celebrate with Davenport, much less the fans in the arena. Jax said that the only reason Davenport had the title was that his wife saved him from being beaten. From ringside, Todd Brown noted that Dakota put Elijah's foot on the ropes during a pinfall after a spear from Jax which looked like it would've ended the match. Jax said that he wanted his rematch next week, and the crowd exploded. Elijah said that, while he'd love to give Jax a shot at the title, he already had a number-one contender in “The Hunter” Chris Jackson, claiming that Jackson was preventing Jax getting a rematch. Suddenly, Jackson's music hit and he came to the stage with a microphone. Jackson said that Davenport was full of crap, adding, “If anything, I want to see you get your ass kicked, Elijah. And, sure, I'd love to be the one to do it. But since my title match is guaranteed either way, I'm happy to let Ezra have the first crack at you. So here's the deal: either you give Ezra his rematch, or I'll go to (HWE President) Oswald Chapman and have Ezra added to our title match. Your choice.” Davenport looked angry and said that if Jax wanted to get embarrassed again, he'd oblige with pleasure and accepted the challenge. Jackson congratulated Davenport on being a man, adding that he'd be in Jax's corner to stop Dakota interfering again. Jax then told Davenport that his title reign would end next week the way the match was meant to end on Sunday: with a spear. Davenport and Jax went nose-to-nose before Dakota got Jax's attention. With Jax distracted, Davenport blasted him with the microphone before going to town with right hands. Jackson ran to the ring and chased Elijah and Dakota off, before checking on Jax.

During the break, Billie Romero approached HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport and his wife, Dakota, and asked if Davenport was concerned about Chris Jackson being in Ezra Jax's corner next week. Davenport scoffed and said that his father had taught him to always have an insurance policy, adding that if he needed it next week, it'd be there. Elijah and Dakota walked away before Romero could ask for more information.

The Cult (Jakob & Joseph, with Deelon Mack) defeated Cedric White & Evan Alexander in 10:34 by pinfall following The Initiation to Alexander, in the Semi-Finals of the HWE Tag Team Title Number-One Contenders Tournament. The Cult, directed by Mack, attacked White and Alexander before the match started. During the match, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that the winner of this match would face the winner of next week's second Semi-Final match between The Cosa Nostra and DISORDER in the Finals in two weeks on ShowDown. HWE Tag Team Champions Deep South Destruction were shown watching the match on a monitor backstage. After the match, Mack entered the ring and took a microphone. Mack said that tonight was the beginning and that his message would spread like a vine and envelop the entire world. Mack continued, “Brothers and sisters, the time has come. The choice is yours to make: join me now... or feel the wrath of my message when it's too late.” Mack laughed and The Cult left the ring.

Backstage, Vincent Crashman interviewed “The Outlier” Serena Bates about becoming number-one contender to the HWE Women's Championship at HWE WrestleTopia. Bates said that it was great to get a step closer to the title, but she knew there was a lot of work to do to take it from Harley Clay. Suddenly, Madison Hammer appeared and said that Bates shouldn't congratulate herself too much. She said that, while it looked like she submitted to the Serena Lock on Sunday, she was actually trying to find her earring which fell out mid-match. She continued, “So your big victory, the one that got you a title shot, was actually a blown call by an idiot referee.” Bates chuckled and said, “Well then I guess I'll have to make you tap out again tonight just to be sure. See you in the ring.” Bates then walked away, as Hammer scoffed.

(Commercial Break)

“The Outlier” Serena Bates defeated Madison Hammer in 7:29 by count-out when “The Brazilian Brawler” Livia stormed to the ring and chased Hammer to the back. From ringside, Todd Brown noted that Hammer cost Livia the HWE Women's Championship at HWE WrestleTopia by interfering just when it seemed Livia had the match and the title won. After the match, Bates celebrated until HWE Women's Champion Harley Clay's music hit. Clay came to the ring, took a microphone and congratulated Bates on earning a title shot, adding, “But this as far as your fairytale gets to go. You might be great at tapping out nobodies, but I'm not a nobody. I'm Harley Clay, the first ever HWE Women's Champion and you will not make me tap out. Do you hear me?.” Bates snatched the microphone and replied, “You got one thing right: you are the first HWE Women's Champion. But when we go one-on-one.. you will tap out.” Bates dropped the microphone and left the ring as Clay threw a fit, yelling that Bates would pay.

Backstage, a limousine pulled up and “The Embodiment of Excellence” Alfonso Silva stepped out. Vincent Crashman approached Silva and asked for his reaction to losing the HWE Championship to Corey Chambers on Sunday. Silva ignored Crashman, slammed the limousine door, and stormed into the arena.

Ozerov defeated “The Trendsetter” Cody Olson in 8:55 by pinfall following The Excruciator. During the match, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that Ozerov competed in the HWE International Championship Number-One Contenders Six Pack Challenge at HWE WrestleTopia, but ended up in a brawl with “The Ice Man” Silas Sullivan which saw them leave the ring and fight to the back. Michael Sanders noted that it took twelve officials to eventually separate them. After the match, Ozerov celebrated until Silas Sullivan's music hit. Sullivan began making his way to the ring but Ozerov got out and met him on the stage. The brawl from Sunday continued as a dozen of officials filed out in an attempt to separate them.

Backstage, “The Embodiment of Excellence” Alfonso Silva was seen making his way towards the arena. From ringside, Todd Brown noted that coming up next, Silva would address his title loss at HWE WrestleTopia.

“The Embodiment of Excellence” Alfonso Silva came to the ring and took a microphone. Each time Silva went to speak, the crowd broke out into a “Corey beat you!” chant, which only served to anger Silva further. Eventually, Silva became so furious that he began yelling at the crowd in Spanish. But they continued chanting until “The Infamous One” Connor Quinn's music hit. As Quinn came to the ring, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that Quinn lost a number-one contenders match to Kenny Kidd on Sunday and, like Silva, had been fuming all week. Quinn entered the ring and a stare down between Silva and Quinn ensued. They exchanged words away from the microphone, with Quinn doing most of the talking. Eventually, Silva nodded his head in agreement, and the two shook hands before leaving the ring together. Todd Brown pondered aloud what had been said between them, and Michael Sanders said, “They've obviously agreed to something, and I have a bad feeling about whatever it is.”

(Commercial Break)

Kaida Sano defeated Morgana Payne in 11:04 by pinfall following The Distresser. During the match, from ringside, Todd Brown and Michael Sanders discussed Sano's impressive performance in the HWE Women's Championship Number-One Contenders match on Sunday. After the match, Sano celebrated until “The Kyoto Crippler” Yuku Teshima appeared and attacked her. Teshima put the boots to Sano before blasting her with Blunt Force Trauma. Officials rushed out and pleaded with Teshima to stop her assault. She did leave the ring, but only to grab a steel chair. Bringing the chair into the ring, she folded it around Sano's elbow before climbing to the middle rope and jumping on the chair. While Sano screamed in agony, the officials berated Teshima, who had a sadistic smile on her face as she left the ring.

Backstage, Billie Romero interviewed “The Oklahoma Pitbull” Kenny Kidd about the contract signing with HWE Champion Corey Chambers tonight. Kidd said that he had a lot of respect for Chambers and was happy to see Chambers become HWE Champion on Sunday. “But I didn't come here to be happy for someone else, I came here to live my dream of becoming the HWE Champion. And tonight, I sign the contract which makes that possible.” The crowd cheered and Kidd walked away.

(Commercial Break)

Koji Goto (with DISORDER) defeated Aldo Rossi (with The Cosa Nostra) in 9:29 by pinfall, when Goto reversed a suplex, landing on Rossi, and Takara Hidaka and Toru Nagata held Rossi's feet down to prevent him kicking out. After the match, Lucky Lorenzo and Vito Moretti ran around the ring and attacked Hidaka and Nagata. Eventually, all six men ended up in a brawl inside the ring, which The Cosa Nostra got the upperhand in, throwing DISORDER from the ring. As Lorenzo, Moretti and Rossi demanded DISORDER come back for a fight, and DISORDER scarpered up the ring, from ringside, Todd Brown noted that the two teams would meet in a Semi-Final Tournament match next week on HWE ShowDown.

Backstage, Billie Romero approached HWE Champion Corey Chambers as he made his way towards the arena for the contract signing. Romero repeated Kenny Kidd's comments from earlier tonight, and Chambers said that he'd have it no other way. Chambers said that Kidd was an elite athlete who, more than any “Real Mexican Hero”, deserved a shot at the HWE Championship. He added that he'd bring everything he had to HWE Fallout, as he knew Kidd would, and walked away.

HWE President Oswald Chapman was stood in the ring – which was furnished with a table, two chairs and a pen – for the contract signing. Chapman said, “On Sunday, we made history with HWE WrestleTopia. But we can't look back, we have to look to the future. On Sunday, February 24 at HWE Fallout, the HWE Championship will be defended when Corey Chambers goes one-on-one with Kenny Kidd!” Chapman called it a dream main event but said that before it was official, the contract must be signed and introduced HWE Champion Corey Chambers, who came to the ring to a massive ovation. Chapman then introduced “The Oklahoma Pitbull” Kenny Kidd. Kidd came out to an ovation as well, but as he got halfway down the ramp, his music stopped. A voice was heard and Kidd turned to see “The Infamous One” Connor Quinn on the HeadlineTron. Stood in the parking lot, Quinn claimed that Kidd robbed him of a shot at the HWE Championship on Sunday, and he'd promised to make Kidd suffer. He then revealed that he was stood next to Kidd's car and said, “I always keep my promises. I'm going to ruin your life, Kenny. And that starts with your car...” Quinn took a baseball bat and began smashing in the windows. Back in the arena, Kidd sprinted back up the ramp and the cameraman followed him through the building, eventually ending up in the parking lot. When Kidd got to his car the windows had been destroyed and Quinn was gone. Kidd surveyed the damage to his car until, suddenly, Quinn reappeared and attacked him. Quinn speared Kidd into the car, before ramming his head into the bonnet. He pulled Kidd onto the bonnet and hit a DDT, rendering Kidd motionless. Quinn spat on Kidd and walked away. Back in the ring, Chambers watched the HeadlineTron with disgust on his face when he was attacked by “The Embodiment of Excellence” Alfonso Silva. Silva put the boots to Chambers, who tried to fight back until he was knee'd in the face by Silva. Silva then picked Chambers up and powerbombed him through the table. Chapman yelled at Silva, who ignored him and left the ring. Halfway up the ramp, though, Silva decided he wasn't finished and came back for more. He applied the sharpshooter to Chambers, who writhed in agony, as referees filed out to get him to break the hold. Silva screamed, wrenching at Chambers' knee, as the fans booed and the show went off the air.
