A.J. & Da’Marius Wreak Havoc At South Broadway

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 27, 2016

mmwamarch-1

The show started with a ten-bell salute for Mike Flowers; he competed as part of the legendary Moondogs as Moondog Puppy Love and apparently competed as the second Moondog Rex as well.

mmwamarch-2

mmwamarch-4

mmwamarch-3

J-Mal Swagg vs. Brandon Aarons vs. “Infamous” Tyler Copeland vs. Varik Morgan for the Jr. Heavyweight Title: Aarons and Copeland brought their PWE/WIA feud to MMWA last month, but their contenders’ match ended in a no-contest when A.J. Williams & Da’Marius Jones attacked both men. That led to an impromptu tag match, but Copeland walked out on Aarons and left him to lose. The match was relatively short with Aarons primarily pairing off with Copeland while Swagg fought with Morgan. It was good while it lasted; Aarons pinned Copeland in 6:48 after a half-nelson suplex…I understand that’s called the “Hairflip Suplex”.

mmwamarch-5

We have a NEWWWWW MMWA Jr. Heavyweight Champion, though Swagg will probably want a rematch after not being pinned/made to submit.

Battle Royal: The show featured two battle royals with the winners facing each other later in the night for a shot at the Heavyweight Title. As is often the case when MMWA does multiple battle royals, a lot of the same guys were in both. The first battle royal had thirteen participants…eleven were introduced, but Swagg assisted a still-hurting Copeland to the ring and they were both late entries. The rest of the field was Brandon Espinosa, Clownman Jacko, “Wildchild” Billy Diamond, Mike Outlaw(making his MMWA debut), Tag Team Champion Prince Moses, “Black Panther” Johnathan Zulu, Flaming Freddie Fury, the debuting Matt Kenway, C.J. Shine, “The Millenial” Danny Adams, and Varik Morgan(who had a really long night).
mmwamarch-6

mmwamarch-7

 

Copeland was quickly eliminated by Zulu, followed by Jacko(by Diamond and Morgan with Espy assisting from the floor) and Swagg(by Adams)). I didn’t quite catch when Diamond went out and neither did MMWA Ring Announcer Ben Simon, but I saw him leave ringside around this time(reviewing the video, Fury threw him out). From there it was Fury (by Espy & Zulu), Adams(by Shine), Zulu(by Outlaw), Shine(by Espy & Kenway), Kenway (by Espy), and Moses (by Espy Awesome-Bombing him over the top rope onto several wrestlers!).

mmwamarch-8

Outlaw eliminated Espinosa in another nod to history in other promotions, but Morgan managed to eliminate Outlaw for the win in 5:02.

mmwamarch-9

The Family (Prince Moses & Damion Cortess) vs. A.J. Williams & Da’Marius Jones for the Tag Team Titles: Moses & Cortess upset The Eternals(Espinosa & Ace Hawkins) for the belts in February; Williams & Jones earned this shot with their win over the dysfunctional duo of Aarons & Copeland.
mmwamarch-10

mmwamarch-11

It felt like the first part of a series between the two teams; Cortess is being eased into action by being part of a tag team. They had a good match going, but it ended out nowhere; Jones and Cortess were fighting in the ring while Williams and Moses brawled on the floor, but the referee counted out the legal men and it led to a double countout in 11:31. Williams & Jones dished out some post-match abuse, tying up Cortess in the ropes and beating down Moses; Jones spraypainted “2.0” on Moses’ back before Baracus arrived to run them off.

Battle Royal: This was an eleven-man battle royal with Morgan removed due to his earlier win and Moses out due to the beatdown in the previous match; “The Enforcer” Jimmy D was in place of Flaming Freddie Fury. Williams & Jones(who had not been signed to participate in the battle royals due to their other championship opportunity) tried to storm the match but were held back by officials.

mmwamarch-12

Eliminations: Jacko by Espy, Kenway by Adams, Copeland by Outlaw, Diamond by Jimmy D, Shine by Adams, Jimmy D by Swagg(with an assist from Diamond on the floor),
mmwamarch-13

mmwamarch-14

mmwamarch-15

Low blow by Brandon Espinosa

Swagg by Adams, Zulu by Outlaw, Outlaw by Adams. That left Adams and Espinosa…Espy showed impressive strength by catching Adams in mid-aerial move before eliminating him in a brisk 3:27.

Varik Morgan vs. Brandon Espinosa: I’ve been impressed by Morgan’s recent outings. Drew Abbenhaus compared him to Sami Zayn…it was probably the red hair.

mmwamarch-16

mmwamarch-17

mmwamarch-18

mmwamarch-19

mmwamarch-30

Espy knocked Morgan off the top rope to start the match and immediately focused on the arm to build to the cross-armbreaker. Williams & Jones AGAIN tried to raise a ruckus, giving Espy the opportunity to use a chair behind the referees’ backs. The ensuing pin attempt was a bit confusing as it looked like Espy got the pin, but the fall was seemingly waved off by Commissioner Jim Harris due to him seeing the illegal weapon usage. The match continued with Morgan surviving Espy’s best offense, even trading WWE finishers with him and beating the ten-count after a turnbuckle brainbuster. The match nearly went to a time-limit draw, but Espy got the cross-armbreaker in the final minutes of the match and Varik tapped out at the 19:10 mark. The two shook hands after the bell without incident.

Mike Outlaw vs. “The Millenial” Danny Adams vs. Matt Kenway: The winner would earn the next shot at the T.V. Title. These three men (among others) had full nights as they were in both battle royals as well as this match. Funny to think that out of the participants in the infamous “illegal match” from last year between Everett Connors and Sean Orleans, only Adams (who refereed that match) remains in MMWA.
mmwamarch-31

mmwamarch-32

mmwamarch-33

mmwamarch-34

Kenway got his welcome-to-wrestling treatment as his chest was red from the knife-edge chops he received throughout the night. Adams pinned Kenway after the reverse Stunner in 11:34.

“Da Bomb” Brian James vs. “Dirdey” Jake Dirden for the T.V. Title: Despite being a rulebreaker in recent months, James was the fan favorite by default against the decidedly-rulebreaking Dirden.
mmwamarch-35

mmwamarch-36

mmwamarch-51

Dirden brought the title belt into the ring, but Dirden got it and BELTed James for the DQ in 9:17. The two continued to fight after the bell until being separated by officials…I don’t think this is over, but Danny Adams has the next shot at the championship.

“Fighting Irishman/Night Train/Gorgeous/Great One” Gary Jackson vs. Moondog Rover for the Heavyweight Title: Considering Moondog’s lengthy tenure in the area, it was surprising to hear Ben Simon comment that this was his first-ever shot at the MMWA Championship.
mmwamarch-52

Gary was dressed in green for St. Patrick’s Day and added his extra nickname for the night…he played the subtle rulebreaker role for the evening as Moondog OVAH was extremely popular as usual. They fought it out and Gary seemed to have the advantage before Williams & Jones ran in for the Sportz Entertainment Finish/no-contest in 9:02.

mmwamarch-53

mmwamarch-54

mmwamarch-55

mmwamarch-56

Bah! The good guys fought them off, but tension still existed between the two before Moondog left the ring area…

00

Gary cut a promo afterwards and said that Moondog could get another title shot any time he wanted. CUE THE RULES~!

Evan Gelistico gains momentum at Cinco De Mayo for this Saturdays Title Opportunity vs. Da’Marius Jones

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 6, 2015

 photo 1_zpsgvkgq5tv.jpg

Kevin Lee Davidson, Evan Gelistico and LaMarcus Clinton

MMWA Champion Da’Marius Jones will be in action this Saturday night at the historic South Broadway Athletic Club defending his title against Evan Gelistico. Prior to the huge six man match in April, Gelistico had not won a match at MMWA, but that would change as he teamed up with Kevin Lee Davidson and LaMarcus Clinton to challenge Jones, Gary Jackson and the Survivor Champion “Da Bomb” Brian James. When the smoke cleared, Gelistico sent shock waves throughout the MMWA locker room by landing a jackknife cradle on Jones for the win.

With revenge on his mind, the young champion quickly accepted the challenge of Gelistico, a decision that Jones may regret by the end of the night on May 9th. It has been true that Gelistico has taken some time to find some momentum at MMWA, but history has shown around the country that he is capable of defeating the top talents around the country to win titles in singles and tag team action and now has his eyes set on the MMWA Championship.

That was evident during the Cinco De Mayo celebration as Gelistico and his band of thugs ran rough shot on the MMWA fan favorites. Gelistico & LaMarcus Clinton accompanied Kevin Lee Davidson against MMWA Tag Team champion Andrew “The Wolf” Wilder. Wilder fought with all of his might, but the shenanigans of the duo at ringside were took much for him to overcome as BIG KLD once again picked up a win at MMWA.

In a huge singles matchup Gelistico with Kevin Lee Davidson & LaMarcus Clinton ringside was tested against “The Great One” Gary Jackson in one on one competition. Both Jackson and the fans were furious as Jackson had to deal with interference and distractions throughout the battle. After twenty minutes of chaos in and out of the ring the match was called a draw with Gelistico surviving the dreaded Texas Cloverleaf finisher. The fans screamed for five more minutes as they believed that was all the time their favorite Jackson needed to put Gelistico in his place but it was not meant to be.

Gelistico was not done for the day as he returned to lend a hand to his partner in crime LaMarcus Clinton as they bullied young Austin Blackburn in one of his first matches ever. Blackburn showed off some exciting offensive maneuvers ,yet it would be for naught as Gelistico and KLD stopped any momentum that the kid had against the cocky Clinton.

Heavyweight Champion Da’Marius Jones had his hands full as he teamed up with Barackus against former MMWA Champion Brandon Espinosa & A.J. Williams. In an exciting battle that showed why Jones has been successful as the MMWA Champion, he was able to withstand the mind games and assault from one of the best in the country Espinosa early on, giving the big man Barackus a chance to deliver a clawhold flatliner on Espinosa for the 1-2-3 for his team after nearly 15 minutes of wild action.

MMWA Heavyweight Champion Da’Marius Jones

Jones ended the day with his hand raised and the MMWA title chance around his waist, but in the shadows is one Evan Gelistico looking to make his second win at the promotion be his first MMWA Championship.
Was this his plan all along?

Be there this Saturday
