One Last Dance for Jordan Lacey at St. Louis Anarchy

Jordan Lacey came out for the preshow match, but said he was frustrated to be in that position and would rather hang up the tights than be reduced to that spot. That brought out St. Louis Anarchy Heavyweight Champion Gerald James & Dorian Victor to lay the badmouth on their fellow LWA original…Lacey got fed up and challenged Gerald with the mindset of having nothing to lose. Gerald and Dorian wanted it to be more interesting and Lacey said he would never challenge for the title again if he didn’t win it. However, Dorian said that he was talking about retirement, so why not put his career on the line? That set up the night’s championship match (A title match had been advertised but no opponent had been announced.)

Gerald James(w/ Dorian Victor) vs. Gorgeous Jordan Lacey for the Heavyweight Title, best-of-three-falls match:

Lacey went old-school-ish with the robe, feather boa, and smaller tights…he even gave a few lucky(?) fans an impromptu lap dance. However, the heels went the subterfuge route in a hurry as Victor blindsided him with a chair before the bell…then Gerald ran in from the front door and quickly encouraged the referee to start the match.

James delivered a “Shadows Over Hell-Bow”(top-rope elbowdrop on a bent-over opponent) to win the first fall in 15 seconds…a few fans didn’t realize it was two-out-of-three and thought it was already over. Despite the early advantage, Lacey battled back and they brawled outside the ring, leading to the big man diving off the ledge by the building stairway!

Gary Jay was able to move just enough in time to not get killed.

He took out Gerald, Dorian, and the ringside security guards…Hardcore Andy just CAN’T catch a break these days. The match went back into the ring and Lacey caught him in the Jenna Jameson(swinging uranagi) for a clean second fall in 7:20…DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?!? Gerald fought back but couldn’t keep the challenger down in the deciding fall, so he blatantly beat him down with a chair and got disqualified in 10:11. (Okay…so the rule-enforcement seems to be a bit more arbitrary than I thought.) Gerald escaped with the title and his 25-month title reign continues…

While Jordan Lacey technically won the match, he didn’t win the title…and he acknowledged that it was his last match. Several wrestlers came out, primarily Lethal Wrestling Alliance originals like Adam Caster, Evan Gelistico, promoter Pierre Abernathy, and The Viking War Party. They noted that Lacey has made a lot of contributions behind the scenes in both the LWA and SLA, even dating back to when several of the local-based wrestlers got started. Lacey got a great ovation for his retirement…he flew under the radar compared to his contemporaries who traveled outside of the area, but he was a solid guy with an entertaining character(particularly in his “Gorgeous” days). All the best to Jordan Lacey and his family…thank you!
