Dubi meets the PWP Fans 8-21-10

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 5, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

Our trip to Council Bluffs, Iowa turned out to be on a beautiful day. With the fall season upon us and school around the corner for both us we knew we had to make our way to Council Bluffs Iowa just in case we were unable attend later due to time.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix blessed to have a great photographer in Gary  Giaffoglione  there on most shows so we always have a MWR presence at a PWP show. PWP has always been great to work with and if you remember they are the premier promotion for fresh baked cookies at their concession stand. We took home eight rice krispy treats if that tells you anything. Hey they are that good

Brian was excited about seeing Gary once again, and had brought him up a complete set of the MWR Trading cards that have several that feature his photo work such as the Mike Sydal, Sir Bradley Charles and the chilling Jeremy Wyatt card that looks a little sinister. Gary made the trip worth it by giving me a hug (You know I need my attention, I am Dubray of course) so the night had started off right.

Prior to saying our hellos to the staff, we decided to find the restroom that was located in the hallway. Before I got done Brian was talking to some fans that were there an hour early waiting for the doors to open. Brian told them what we were doing and Nancy stated that her favorite was the BIG Abu Colossus. She stated that every time he came out prior to his match she liked to get up and do a dance to let him know that she was on his side. We promised her that if Abu was there on the night she would be among the Dubi Meets the fans.

The doors opened at 6:30 so off the work I went to find fans that were interested in being a part of this edition of Dubi meets the fans. Brian and PWP must have advertised it good or they remembered the last time we did it at PWP and didn’t want to miss it this time because there was a ton of people wanting to get their picture with the PWP Superstars.

Our MWR Wrestler of the night was none other than the PWP Champion Tony Cortez. Cortez wore the MWR shirt prior to starting the night off with impromptu win against Zac James.  Before the match started he threw the shirt to Ben Castillo from Fremont, NE. During the intermission he took the time to meet the young fan.

One fan that was a lot of fun to watch during the matches told me his name was Daniel “The Power Deaf” Gilchrist from Glenwoood Iowa. When the wrestlers would kick out just in time for the final 3 count he was really into it. He wanted Jayden Draigo but Draigo I was told has been a terror at PWP for some time and can be uncontrollable at times so Brian asked if he could choose someone else. He quickly chose fan favorite Matty Starr.

Ron Blair had no hesitation to who he wanted to have his picture with it was the ever popular Donnie Peppercricket.

Young Michael Barnes from Council Bluffs Iowa was at PWP to see the exciting Jaysin Strife in action. Strife was more than happy to get his picture with Michael.

A regular of Pro Wrestling Phoenix was John Striffler from Omaha Nebraska who told me that he had been a big of wrestling for over sixty years. John told me that he always enjoyed coming to Pro Wrestling Phoenix and tried to make every show. John told me that he was a fan of Chris Havius who was one half of the PWP Tag Team Champions along with Donnie Peppercricket.

As we were taking pictures I was told that little bitty Kaycee’s favorite wrestler was Tony Cortez. Cortez was nearby and snapped the shot of the youngest fan to ever take part in the Dubi meets the fans.

The last time we were at PWP Matty Star was in high demand and on this night it was no different. Starr has been making waves in 2010 where ever we go and we are not the only ones that noticed because just like Daniel “The Power Deaf” Gilchrist, Joshua Pope was all smiles as he posed with Matty Starr.

Abu Colossus had his hands full on this night against Preston Maxwell but before his match after intermission he took a snap shot with Nathan Gilchrist.

Adam was a fan of the PWP Tag Team Champions, Havius and Peppercricket and may have been the last person to get their pictures taken with the duo as champs. They would take on the Beautiful Bodies, and would retain the titles but you will have to wait for the recap here at MWR (Or click on the PWP Website if you can’t wait) to find out who would leave Battle of the Phoenix 2010 with the belts.

The last fan that I will introduce you to was really excited to be at PWP and was very excited to have their pictures taken with the PWP wrestlers was Mike Firk. Mike would ask to have his picture taken with Matty Starr, Chris Havius and Donnie Peppercricket as well as catching me after the show excited about getting his picture taken with the lovely  Angelus Layne and Jaysin Strife.

I looked around to see who my pick on this evening would be and noticed that Sir Bradley Charles had just got done meeting the fans and selling the awesome looking SBC shirt to a fan and had a moment so I asked him to be my Dubi Meets the fans choice and Jaysin Strife was nearby so why not add him as well.

Fans I hope that you enjoyed this edition of Dubi Meets the PWP fans and for more pictures of these fans with their favorite wrestler please click here to see them.

We hope to have a full recap of this show along with MWR’S Introducing Angelus Layne.

Till next time be good and I hope to see you at the show.
