To begin the show, Jason Vendetta makes his way to the ring and demands a rematch against DaCobra, who had defeated Vendetta on Dec. 6th for the Alberta J. Murray Memorial Championship in a Ladder Match. Vendetta claimed that he was screwed out of his trophy by special guest referee Angelo Santelli. Santelli delivered a “Sky High” spine buster from atop the ladder on Vendetta, but only after Vendetta used the banned flipping pile driver, “The Detenator” on DaCobra. The Lead Council to the Board of Directors, Jonathon Castle said that Vendetta was not going to get a rematch, and furthermore DaCobra hadn’t even arrived at the arena as of yet. So, in a show of protest Vendetta sat in the middle of the ring and said the show would not start until he was granted his rematch, but Mr. Castle assure Vendetta that the show WAS going to begin!
Lovely Miss Amanda announced the first match of the afternoon as being for the NBWA Mid-West Championship, and would be the champion, Wild Bill accompanied to the ring by Brandi Harris vs former NBWA Heavyweight Champion, Eric Ruffington. Ruffington and Wild Bill, not knowing what to think of Vendetta still sitting in the middle of the ring began their match. During the opening moments, it was clear that Vendetta wasn’t going to leave the ring after Bill and Ruffington locked up, and Jason Vendetta was caught in between them, in frustration, Bill threw Vendetta out of the ring, only to have him return and reclaim his spot in the center of the ring. Bill and Ruffingon continued their match trying to wrestle around Vendetta but that proved to be easier said than done. In the end, Eric Ruffington was the winner of the match(with a little help from Jason Vendetta)and the new NBWA Mid-West Champion!
Winner by pinfall, and new NBWA Mid-West Champion Eric Ruffington!
Following the match, Vendetta reitereated that he wasn’t leaving the ring until he got his rematch! Who should come to the ring but NBWA Heavyweight /Heritage Champion, “Bloody” Harker Dirge! Harker says that he, like the NBWA fans are tired of listening to Vendetta’s whining and said that since he didn’t have an opponent lined up for the afternoon, and wanted to get a paycheck this week, he challenged Vendetta to a match.
The second match of the afternoon was a Gauntlet Match featuring Issan Hadeev, with a special stipulation that if Issan lost against any of his 4 opponents he would have to sing The national Anthem. Issan’s first opponent was Jordan “Shorty” Vandel, who was making his NBWA debut. Unfortunately for Jordan, it was a short lived debut, Issan had won match #1.
For match #2 Issan’s opponent was Christian Rose, who was also making his NBWA debut, and just like Jordan, didn’t last very long against an angry “Arabian Assassin”.Match #3 for Hadeev was against Nicky “The Weasel” Mankotti. Weasel fared far better than the two previous opponents, but ultimately it was the same result, Issan had beaten Weasel in the 3rd match with “The Camel Clutch”. Finally Issan Hadeev’s 4th opponent for the day was “Da Best Kept Secret” D’Andre King. This match was the most competative of the gauntlet, it started out with Issan and D’Andre testing each others strength, and then they took turns with running shoulder blocks, but neither man would budge. We saw a couple of big suplex’s from D’Andre, and both men each hit a spinebuster on the other, but in the end Issan was victorious in match #4 following a “Jihad” neckbreaker.
Winner: Issan Hadeev
The next match of the afternoon was the very first NBWA women’s match, featuring Brandi Harris vs Jessika Haze. It was a great match for “Little Sis”, considering she won the match, but it was the aftermath that everyone was talking about . After Brandi’s big win in her debut, Wild Bill joined her in the celebration and in a real shocker, Brandi dropped to her knees and nailed Bill with an uppercut to the groin, and then got on the mic and told everyone what a looser Bill was!
Winner by pinfall: Brandi Harris
Up next, Mr. Castle came back to the ring to make the announcement that due to Simply Divosi’s broken clavical that he suffered in an ATV accident over the holidays, the NBWA No-Limits Championship was going to be up for grabs in this next match. The match was between Nick Cuttler, and “The Apex” Blake Steel. Steel made his way to the ring preceded by Anderson Rhodes, and Eric Ruffington, but what came as a shock was that Blake had asked Anderson and Eric to leave ringside, Blake said that he wanted to win the title on his own. This pleased the crowed, who was rather oddly cheering for Blake for the entire match. And what a match it was, it saw both competitors get near falls, and multiple submission holds. In the end Nick Cutler was victorious!
Winner by pinfall, and new NBWA No-Limits Champion: Nick Cutler
After a short intermission, we get back to the action with a NBWA Tag team Title match between “The Worlds Greatest Masked Tag Team” vs the team of Jeff Harris and Aaron Matthews. It was a fast paced, action packed match that saw yet another betrayal. During the closing moments of the match, a fatigued Cheapshot McGrot was attempting to make a tag to his partner, but Cyclone refused the tag, backing away from the corner, signaling that he wasn’t getting in the match leaving Cheapshot to fend for himself. “Jeff and Aaron” then won the match when Aaron Matthews hit a Shooting Star Press on Cheapshot and then got the 1..2..3!
Winner’s and new NBWA tag Team Champions” Jeff and Aaron”
Following the match Cyclone helped celebrate the win with Matthews and Harris
Next up was the debut of “The Japanese Nightmare” Kahagas, and hi opponent was the 2008 Alberta J. Murray Memorial Champion DaCobra. For those who didn’t see this match you missed a vicious man in action, you can see why Kahagas is called “The Japanese Nightmare”, it not often that you see DaCobra manhandled the way he was in the opening minutes of the match, literally being tossed around like a ragdoll! Following a brief timeout from DaCobra to regroup he re entered the ring using his speed and quickness to combat Kahagas rather than strength. The rest of the match featured quick kicks from DaCobra, and Kahagas always seemed to match DaCobra kick for kick. One advantage Kahagas had was his sickening chops, he must have hit half a dozen bone chilling chop on DaCobra during the early goings of the match. In the final moments of the match Kahagas had DaCobra in the far corner of the ring, and hit a massive headbutt the the chest, and then began to unleash yet another series of vicious chops on DaCobra when DaCobra hit the mat and rolled Kahagas up in a small package for the 3 count.
Winner by pinfall: DaCobra
Following the match the NBWA crowd gave Kahagas a huge round of applause and chanted “Please Come Back”.
Next up was a tag team match between the team of Cecil Cerveza and “Dangerous” Drew Thomas, vs a team called “The Blackhearts” who were two VERY large men who were accompanied to the ring by “TNT” Keny G. Despite being the smaller of the two teams Cecil and Drew took all that the Blackhearts could give them, and then some, in the end though it was a bit of trickery that won the match for The Blackhearts. It looked as though Cecil had the match under control when he had one of the Blackhearts down, and Cecil turned his head for a moment and the Blackhearts pulled a switch-a-roo, while referee Tally was busy with Keny G. Cecil went to the top rope for a diving headbutt, but the fresh Blackheart rolled out of harms way, and that lead to a victory for The Blackhearts”
Winner by pinfall: The Blackhearts
Finally, for the main event of the evening, it was the NBWA heavyweight Champion “Bloody” Harker Dirge vs “#1” Jason Vendetta, who was being accompanied to the ring by “Serenity” who we had previously know as Brandi Harris. During the early goings it was all Harker Dirge, that is until some help showed up for Jason Vendetta. Jeff Harris and Aaron Matthews came to the ring to help even the odds for Vendetta. While the referee was busy dealing with Serenity, Aaron had set up a steel chair in the corner of the ring for Vendetta to use to his advantage, and that’s exactly what happened. Vendetta used Harkers Head as a battering ram right into the steel chair, but Harker just wouldn’t quit, kicking out of the pin at a 2 count. It was another foreign object though that spelled the demise of BHD. While referee Tally was busy with Jeff and Aaron Serenity had gotten a pipe wrench from underneath the ring and slid it into Vendetta who then used the wrench to clock Harker right in the temple knocking him out cold. Vendetta went for the cover and got the 3 count!
Winner and new NBWA Heavyweight Champion: Jason Vendetta.
What a day it was at The New Breed Gym, four title changes in all, two betrayal’s, and six brand new faces in the ring!
