Hi welcome aboard everyone. I've goofed this week and missed most of Velocity due to sleeping in after a heavy night out so please credit all bar the Main Event to Luke Barasic of WrestlingObserver.Com. With that in mind let's get on with Velocity.
We open with still images of the I Quit match. Joy Giovanni is guest ring announcer for the opening match. Howard Finkel, she ain't.

Funaki gets tossed from the ring before the bell. Doug clotheslines Nunzio and gets a 2 count. Doug with another clothesline. Nunzio attempts a
crucifix...blocked...sunset flip...blocked. Now, Doug misses an elbowdrop, but Nunzio has no-one to tag as Funaki is still down. Doug flapjacks Nunzio and
tags in Danny Basham. Danny with a back suplex. Meanwhile, Doug scurries under the ring and pulls Funaki down off the apron with Funaki's chin connecting with
