Welcome to PWInsider's live, ongoing coverage of the FWE Grand Prix event in Brooklyn, NY.
The show opened live with Karen and Jeff Jarrett coming out to the ring. Jeff said that when they agreed to this date, he only had one stipulation and that was to let the crowd sing "Happy Birthday" to Karen.
The crowd started but Jason Gotti came out and said it was garbage that he wasn't on the show but this was going on. He challenged Jarrett to face him and shoved Jeff. Jeff asked him if he was really asking for this and took off his shirt. Gotti shoved him again. Karen began yelling at Gotti and shoved him.
Jarrett nailed Gotti, then drilled him with a guitar and covered him for the pin.
Your winner, Jeff Jarrett!

Good match. Ivelisse was really looking good from an in-ring standpoint. Rosita showed some fire. This was the most I've seen of Ray inthe ring and she was trying hard.
