Independent Hardcore Wrestling October 17th Recap. Cowboy Bob Orton vs “Bloody” Harker Dirge, Ian Rotten vs. Mephisto 2

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 29, 2009

Independent Hardcore Wrestling returned to Dupo Illinois with their third show of the year with a WWE Legend in the house.

Before the matches began IHW honored their friend and fellow wrestler Zachary “Napalm” Porter. The Midwest wrestling scene was sadden after the horrific events that saw Napalms life taken as well as the mother and father of his girlfriend in a brutal murder. A touching video played for the crowd in attendance that showcased Napalm the wrestler and person. Thanks to IHW I am going to share with you the “Tribute to Napalm”

The night started off with a little wacky and crazy action that the Dupo crowd seemed to love as Poo Doo the Cow took on Farmer Billy Hills. I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard Ring announcer Luke Roberts ask “How much does a cow weigh?

All jokes aside the crowd was buzzing with MOOOOOO and Holy COW chants. In the end I found out that a cow could climb the ropes as Poo Doo the Cow hit Hills with a flying head but for the victory.

This prompted ECW original and Hardcore Legend Ian Rotten to enter the ring and cleared both Poo Doo and Billy Hills who was not amused with Poo Doo the Cow and more importantly was sicken about the low life who had taken the life of Napalm getting applause from the Dupo Crowd. Rotten stated “Mephisto later tonight we go to war, I am asking that you come out here”. Mephisto entered the ring and Rotten spoke about the loss of the wrestling world with Rotten losing his good friend Chris Candido while Mephisto lost his friend Napalm. Rotten then said he would be happy to fight Mephisto in a match for one mans honor. That this match would be not the real wrestling of sports entertainment but real full contact kick ass beats somebody down so if you will give me the pleasure I will give you the pleasure to tear this son of B**CH down. With Mephistos guard down Ian Rotten attacked to let Mephisto know that he doesn’t care about him at all!! Later tonight Mephisto’s career is coming to an end.

Up next one of the most underrated wrestlers Billy McNeil taking on Canada’s favorite wrestler Sean Vincent. Two guys that can really put on a show with there quick explosive moves. McNeil is truly electrifying while no one understands how to change momentum of a match like Vincent.

Back and forth these two warriors battled. Vincent thought he had the victory with a little help from the ropes but McNeil willed his way out of it into his own pinfall victory to shock Vincent.

The next match saw Shawn Almighty going one on one with former tag team partner Ian Storm. These two are new to me but both posse’s size as well as agility to make a run at anyone’s promotions singles titles.

Anger was evident as they battled inside and out of the ring. Storm was ruthless as he wrapped the leg of Storms on the outside turnbuckle. Shawn Almighty turned the tide when he rolled up Storm for the 1-2-3. Almighty’s celebration would be short lived as Mr. Late Nite came to the ring with his protégé Cabal and Graves attacked Almighty. In for the save came the ST Louis debut of Dan the Man and the Dixie Land Destroyer.

The ref rang the bell for Dan the Man and Dixieland Destroyer to take on Cabal and Graves in tag team action. Graves and Cabal had the power advantage on Dan the Man till Dan put on his cape that allowed him to knock down the much bigger Cabal and Graves.

MR Late Nite made his presence felt when he was able to get the Destroyer’s attention diverted by having him chase him in the locker room. This allowed Cabal and Graves to double team Dan the Man for the victory. The Dixieland Destroyer would return to clear the ring but it was too late as MR Late Nite had lead his team to victory.

In a grudge match between the ST Louis Invitational tournament champion Brandon Aarons went head to head with the man who felt that he should of won the trophy Eric Allen in a match billed as a Peorian Pride street fight title match.

These two young wrestlers went at each other with a vengeance. Ladders, handcuffs and chairs were used to bruise and battered each other. The crowd was easily on Aarons side as Let’s go Brandon lets go filled the room up trying to rejuvenate the Brandon as Allen pounded his arch enemy with all his might.

Allen set up a ladder in the corner along with a table, but the tables leg wouldn’t stand up which may allowed Aarons to get his wits together. Allen then found himself in a bad situation when Aarons delivered a chair shot at the top of the ladder sending Allen crashing on to the table.

The table held strong for the moment but it would be Aarons coming from the top of the ladder on top of Allen that would send the table into pieces and give Aarons the Peorian title.

As Aarons was celebrating his hard fought victory his tag team partner Brandon Espinosa entered the ring not amused. Espinosa stated that he was not pleased that Aarons was pampering to the fans and that it was not the fans that had help him (Brandon Espinosa) become one of the PWI top 500 wrestlers in the world, it was himself that had made it happen.

He told Aarons to watch his match with that bum Kurt Styles later in the night too see how wrestling for yourself had its advantages.

After intermission we would see if Brandon Espinosa could back his words by taking down Kurt Styles. From the get go Espinosa went after Styles. You have to give it to Styles as he showed a lot of heart but the truth of the matter is (and I hate to say this) Brandon Espinosa is one of the top wrestlers in the Midwest. Espinosa took it to Kurt Styles for the victory.

The next contest was an honor for the fan in me as I got to photograph a WWE Legend and one of the first wrestlers that I ever got to see on TV Cowboy Bob Orton as he went to battle the PWE Champion “Bloody” Harker Dirge. I was able to catch up with the PWE Champion Dirge earlier in the night. He had these words for Orton and a shout out for the MWR Fans to vote for him to be the 2009 MWR fans Wrestler of the Year poll. If you have not voted please check it out here.

Cowboy Bob Orton had a special guest with him on this evening, his son, Nathan Orton. The Dupo crowd was red hot for St LOUIS Own Orton; in return the champion looked to slow down the energy of the crowd by stalling and complaining to the ref.

I won’t lie to you I got caught up in the moment and became a fan as well while taking pictures. Dirge repeatedly choked Cowboy Bob Orton, Nathan who sat at ringside cheering on his dad could not take anymore, and like his brother Randy has a very dangerous kick that he delivered to the PWE Champion from the outside. The ref DQ’D Cowboy allowing Dirge to retain the title.

The next match saw Steven Kennedy taking on Bucky Collins in a one on one match up. I had never seen Collins prior to this night but was very impressed with him as these two really had a solid match up.

Steven Kennedy continued his rise to the top of the Midwest with a win against Collins on this night. I look forward to checking out more of Collins in the area.

It would take a while to get the ropes down and put up the barb wire, meanwhile Luke Roberts pointed out to the crowd the damage that the barb wire presented but demonstrated how it could slice through an aluminum can. That is one a reason why I write for a wrestling site and not in the squared circle. I was excited to see Ian Rotten vs. Mephisto 2.

For the ones who state they don’t like Hardcore, I respect that and think no less of you. Let me say that you know what you are getting at when you go to a promotion and the name of it is Independent Hardcore Wrestling expect to see some hard hitting ruthless action.

Ian Rotten went after Mephisto from the start. At one moment Rotten was raking Mephsitos head in the barb wire, if having your head opened with the sharp barb wire wasn’t enough for the hometown warrior, Mephsito’s hair was tangled up for a moment luckily for him (or maybe not) Rotten yanked his head and hair off it. The brutality continued with thumbtacks and light bulbs. Chair shots and forks delivered the damage in this war.

Words can’t describe this contest. Rotten got some wire cutters to cut the barb wire ring and wrap Mephisto up then proceeded to cut him with a broken glass bottle demanding that he quit. When he wouldn’t Rotten went crazy and hit the referee Eric Davis with a chair as well as a security guard and Max Archer. Rotten then took a belt and wrapped it around the neck of Mephisto. Dan the Man ran into the ring to make the save, but in one of the smartest moves I have seen he backtracked and went back to the locker room. Rotten now with no one to stop him. sent Mephisto hanging from the top rope barb wire. Stating that his job was done. He had finished off the hometown favorite Mephisto.
