Pro Wrestling Phoenix May 24 – 8 Year anniversary show- Matty Star vs. Ryan Slade

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 21, 2013

 photo MAY13JPEG_zps1fde55af.jpg

On Friday night May 24th – Pro Wrestling Phoenix celebrates 8 years of bringing you the best wrestling available! Here is what you will see on that fateful night!

*** The MAIN EVENT will be MATTY STAR defending the Pro Wrestling Phoenix Heavyweight Championship against “SIMPLY RAVISHING” RYAN SLADE! These two have been in an all time classic PWP rivalry, which was never resolved. Along with that, Slade never received a rematch after losing the title last year, so the decision has been made to bring these two head to head once again, with the title on the line! Be there to see what is sure to be an incredible main event!!!

*** At our last event, a challenge was laid down for an I QUIT match between SEAN CRUZ and PRESTON MAXWELL, not only was the challenge accepted, but the stakes were raised! On May 24th, both men’s careers are on the line, as the one who says I QUIT won’t just be quitting the match, but will be quitting wrestling altogether! We will see which man’s career will go on, and which will end!!!

*** “Cheap & Dirty” member BRANDEN JUAREZ will go one on one with a man making his return to PWP after a two year absence…….“THE ANARCHIST” ARIK CANNON! This encounter is absolutely certain to be a classic!!!

*** NEW PWP Tag Team Champions will be crowned, in an Elimination style Triple Threat Tag Team match! It will Be “THE AMERICAN BULLDOGS” JON WEST & MAD DOG McDOWELL vs Cheap & Dirty’s “TEAM LARIAT” SHAWN NAUTILUS & “JOE-DOZER” JOEY ANDERSON vs a PWP Legends team of ABU COLOSSUS & HYPE GOTTI! The last team standing will take home the vacant PWP Tag Team Titles!!!

*** “THE OMAHA CHAINSAW” SM KING will square off against LESLIE RAY! Ray has been undefeated in PWP since returning last year, however King has been on a very impressive role as of late as well. Both men need a win here, but only one can be victorious!!!

*** DEREK CORNELL will do battle with “SHOWTIME” BRADLEY CHARLES! SBC is a former PWP Heavyweight Champion, and does hold a guaranteed shot at the PWP Title at a future date, however he must deal with Derek Cornell first! Cornell has now established himself as a top singles star, and is without question on the rise in PWP! This should be a fantastic matchup between two of PWP’s best wrestlers!!!

*** PWP newcomer Merlin Dean Banks will square off against the mighty Michael Monsoon, however Monsoon says he is on a very different path than the last time we saw him, and that he has created a program that will take him to the top, a program called……Yokozumba? Take a look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIJhPbEDZeU

*** One half of the “Heroes for Hire” JIMMY ROCKWELL will take on one of the most popular members of the PWP roster, DARREN “THUNDER” RUSSELL! Russell will have to be ready for the underhanded tactics that the self proclaimed “hero” is sure to bring to the battle!!!

*** In 3 Way Dance action – JOEY DANIELS w/ “MANAGER SUPREME” AXEL GREECE will take on Cheap & Dirty member “THE PASSION” ZAC JAMES and the returning DARIN CORBIN! All three of these men are former PWP Tag Team Champions, with a lot to gain by picking up a victory here. Joey may have the biggest advantage, having Greece at ringside, Corbin is sure to have the most fan support, and Zac has an amazing undefeated record at PWP’s Anniversary events. This should be an awesome matchup, that could go the way of any of these three competitors!!!

Don’t miss what is sure to be an epic night, as we celebrate 8 years of PWP!!!

Results from PWP‘s Year of the Phoenix VI – NEW PWP CHAMPION!!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 9, 2011

Fans, you had to be there to witness an incredible night of action on January 15, 2011 as we kicked off the new year with Year Of The Phoenix 6! Shocking events took place and we will do our best to put it into words for anyone who missed it! The night featured an 8 man tournament in which the PWP Heavyweight Championship was being defended throughout!

At the beginning of the night, all 8 tournament competitors made their way to the ring for a group photo and to announce the tournament brackets. After that, we got underway with the action.

*** Tournament Quarterfinal: Matty Star defeated Abu Colossus. You could see the look of pain on Star’s face when it was announced his first round opponent was “The Big Hurt”. This was a phenomenal opening contest with Star doing everything he could to bring the big man down! Star nailed a lionsault off the ropes and caught Colossus off guard just long enough to score the 3 count! Abu shook Matty’s hand after the match.

*** Tournament Quarterfinal: Preston Maxwell defeated Derek Cornell. Cornell, one half of the Beautiful Bodies with Brian Gott, had to go at it solo this evening in hopes of winning the tournament. Maxwell wanted nothing to do with Cornell’s antics, and quickly brought him down with the Gator Roll Choke.

*** Tournament Quarterfinal: “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt defeated Zach Thompson. Zach Thompson was on the microphone insulting the fans in that signature irritating voice when Wyatt’s music hit, much to the fans relief. “The Rebel” has been showing a new focus lately, forgetting his former teammates and setting his sights on competing. Thompson showed the fans of PWP a lot in this one, however Wyatt hit a devastating combo, a Superplex then floating over into a Fisherman’s Buster that got him the pinfall win and advancement in the tournament.

*** Tournament Quarterfinal & PWP Heavyweight Championship Match: “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Joey Daniels. Joey Daniels seemed confident coming out, however Cortez took it right to him, holding nothing back. Daniels surprised a lot of people here with a few very close falls and almost became PWP Champion, however in the end the “Icon” of PWP nailed a back-drop driver to retain his coveted title.

*** PWP Tag Team Championship: Zac James & Ryan Slade defeated Jimmy Rockwell & Mad Dog McDowell. Zac & Slade came out and explained their manager Axel Greece couldn’t be there however they would still defend their championship against anyone in the back. Jimmy Rockwell came out but Slade commented how he didn’t have a partner therefore couldn’t compete. Rockwell then brought out a surprise partner, the massive Mad Dog McDowell, and Zac & Slade did not look happy to see him! Mad Dog manhandled the tag champs for a bit until they got the upper hand on Rockwell. Zac, using every opportunity available, grabbed the Canadian flag and attempted to use it. When the referee took it away and set it aside, Zac used the distraction to nail Mad Dog with a low blow then he and Slade hit their Sliced Bread Splash combination finisher to retain their title belts.

*** Tournament Semifinal Match: Matty Star defeated Preston Maxwell. Both of these men could taste the finals so bad that they refused to back down. Maxwell tried to lock his choke hold on to no avail. Star hit his incredible top rope Falcon Arrow maneuver to get the three count and advance to the tournament finals! What happened next was absolutely shocking. Maxwell attacked Matty, then grabbed a pair of steel chairs. He shoved Star’s head inside one chair and slammed the other chair onto it! Maxwell then locked his Gator Roll Choke onto Matty and refused to let go. After 2 referees and a few competitors finally broke the hold, Maxwell went to the back. Star was helped to the back but the situation looked bleak.

*** Tournament Semifinal Match & PWP Heavyweight Championship Match: “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt. It’s the first event of 2011 and already we have a match of the year contender! You had to be there to see these guys take it to another level. They have battled before but this time they put it all on the line. Wyatt, a former champion put everything he had into it, but in the end Cortez rolled through on a high cross-body to win the match and advance to the finals!

*** David Clark defeated Branden Juarez. Clark came out for a match however during his entrance was jumped by the man formerly known as Donnie Peppercricket! Now we know he is named Branden Juarez and he claimed he served his suspension and still wasn’t booked, and was therefore “booking himself“! He grabbed a referee and demanded he ring the bell, and proceeded to beat on David Clark. Clark came back strong including a HUGE T-Bone Suplex however Juarez hit the Kryptonite Crunch and pinned David… until he pulled him up. Juarez delivered more punishment and set up another finishing maneuver when Chris Havius’ music hit the sound system! This distracted Juarez long enough for David Clark to roll Branden up and get the victory!!

Photobucket

A furious Juarez had little time to react as Havius returned to PWP and immediately attacked him! He had the upper hand however Juarez bailed out of the ring before too much damage could be done. Havius then gave an emotional speech and challenged his former partner Juarez for February 12th!

*** PWP Heavyweight Championship Match: Preston Maxwell defeated “Babyface” Tony Cortez to win the Pro Wrestling Phoenix Heavyweight Championship! Matty Star’s music was played, but no one was sure what was going to happen. Preston Maxwell came out and very arrogantly explained that due to his attack, Star couldn’t compete. He then asked Tony if he was a fighting champion and when Tony said yes, he challenged him to put the title on the line against him right there and then. Cortez of course instantly agreed, never one to turn down a challenge. However, the evening had taken its toll on him. His second title reign that began on December 19, 2009 ended on January 15, 2011 when Maxwell locked in the Gator Roll Choke and Cortez passed out. Maxwell then made PWP Staff put the belt around his waist and repeatedly announce him as the new champion.

No one could have predicted the events of the evening. This is why you always have to be at PWP to see what could happen!
The next event is February 12th at the Council Bluffs National Guard Armory!

Tickets as always are $10 and the doors open at 6:30, bell time 7:00!

We know a little bit so far:

*Preston Maxwell will defend his PWP Heavyweight Championship. Who he will defend against is unclear at this point. There have already been people demanding a title shot against him, and we will know more soon.

*Chris Havius will take on Branden Juarez one on one! These former Tag Team Champions, now bitter rivals will beat the crap out of each other, that is for sure! Be there to see Havius attempt revenge!

More details will be announced soon, thanks to all our great fans! 2011 will truly be the year of Pro Wrestling Phoenix!

2.) Sean Nautilus and Angelus Layne wrestled to a No Contest when Donnie Peppercricket ran into the ring and attacked both competitors. Peppercricket was suspended from competing this evening, and he came in from the side entrance. He then said that he doesn’t care about being suspended or fined, that he is tired of being everyone’s dancing clown and he’s tired of the ridiculous name Donnie Peppercricket. He revealed that his name is actually Branden and he intends on making Chris Havius’ life a living hell.

3.) #1 Brett Young defeated David Clark via One Shot. David Clark was looking for the upset win here, and utilizing his array of suplex’s almost got it for him. However, Young’s experience and knowledge helped him pick up the victory over the rookie.

4.) PWP Tag Team Championship: Zac James & Ryan Slade w/ Axel Greece defeated Beautiful Bodies of Brian Gott & Derek Cornell via Sliced Bread/Splash Combo in a very fun tag team match! The Bodies seemed only to be interested in wrestling Ryan Slade for some reason. In the end the champions proved why they are on top in PWP.

5.) “Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt defeated “Rock N Roll” Mike Sydal via Lightning Spiral in an intense bout. Wyatt returned to PWP after a short hiatus and showed he was no nonsense by taking Sydal down systematically. Sydal came close a few times but couldn’t defeat the Rebel.

6.) Matty Star defeated Zach Thompson via Top Rope Falcon Arrow that was absolutely mind blowing! These two had a great wrestling match that showed PWP fans that Thompson can hang in the ring with one of their favorite competitors.

7.) PWP Heavyweight Championship: “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Supafli via Ki-Krusher to retain his Heavyweight Championship. Cortez was given the opportunity to face anyone for the title and he chose Supafli because he said that he was very impressed by his recent victory over Jaysin Strife and wanted to see what he had in the ring face to face. These two crowd favorites put on a spectacle that will not soon be forgotten!

8.) Last Man Standing: Abu Colossus defeated Preston Maxwell when Preston had the Gator Roll Choke locked on Abu and Abu found the strength to spear Maxwell through a table that had been set up in the corner, and Maxwell could not answer the referee’s 10 count. This match saw a lot of insane violence including scary repeated chair shots and brawling all over the arena. Maxwell even took the bottom rope off and choked Colossus with it! Maxwell had the Gator Roll Choke locked in a few times but Abu found a way out each time and showed why his nickname is the Big Hurt.

It was an amazing show, thanks to everyone who came out and showed their support! Next show is January 15th at the National Guard Armory in Council Bluffs, and it is Year of the Phoenix 6!!!

Details coming soon!

The PWP Tag Champs with their manager Axel Greece. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

At the beginning of the show, PWP Tag Team Champions Zac James & Ryan Slade came out along with “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece. Greece explained that if Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket lost, they could never have another tag team title shot as long as James & Slade were champions. However if they won they would get Greece in the ring for five minutes after the match. They made fun of the crowd for a few minutes before Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket came out. They chased them out of the ring, and Chris Havius told them to up the stakes a little bit. He made the challenge to make the match a Tornado Tag match, which the Champions accepted!

1.) Sir Bradley Charles defeated Jayden Draigo. This was a very technical opening bout, and Draigo didn’t seem like his usual self. In the end, SBC got what most would consider and upset win over Draigo with his TKO maneuver.

2.) “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell defeated Zach Thompson. You could tell that each man was familiar with the other’s work as there were reversals all over the place. In the end Rockwell laid out Thompson with the sit out Gordbuster and hit his Rock-On Bomb off the top rope to get the 1-2-3.

3.) Joey Daniels defeated David Clark. Clark, returning to the ring after a lengthy stay in China was looking to pick up where he left off by taking Joey Daniels out. There was a lot of action here, and Clark showed an amazing array of Suplexes and holds. However Daniels had his tricks up his sleeve as well, and capitalized on one small mistake Clark made to pick up the victory in this one. During the match, Jayden Draigo was observing from the entrance area, and afterwards, he got in the ring and whispered something in David Clark’s ear. We are not clear what the meaning of this is and are trying to get some more details. Clark declined comment on the matter.

4.) Abu Colossus defeated Preston Maxwell via Disqualification. Colossus was looking for revenge against Maxwell after last month’s mockery of the Big Hurt. However, during Colossus’ entrance, Maxwell sneak attacked him and they started brawling on the outside of the ring. They threw each other into walls and chairs as the referee tried to get them into the ring to start the match! Maxwell reversed a whip into the ring post and it seemed like Colossus was hurt. He rolled him into the ring and demanded the referee ring the bell but only got a two count. Some back and forth action between the two happened before Colossus set up for his big Full Nelson Slam, but Maxwell took the cheap way out by kicking him straight in the crotch! The referee rang the bell and Maxwell locked the Gator Roll Choke on Abu, refusing to let go.

The refs had a very difficult time getting Maxwell to break the hold. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

Does Preston Maxwell have “The Big Hurts” number? It has look that way in the past few months. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

It took two referees and about 5 minutes before Maxwell finally let Colossus out of the hold and you could tell he was very proud of himself as he went to the locker room.

5.) Zac James & Ryan Slade w/ Axel Greece defeated Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket to retain the PWP Tag Team Championship. This match broke down fast with the Tornado rules in place, and it seemed that every time Havius tried to get in the ring to stop Peppercricket from getting double-teamed, they would knock him back outside. The end came when Slade whipped Havius into the ring post causing a deep laceration requiring stitches to close. Meanwhile James hit the Sliced Bread on Peppercricket, and Slade followed it up with a splash from the top rope to retain their titles and save their manager from a beating. Elated, the champions left knowing they will never have to face the duo again.

What happened next was perhaps on of the most shocking moments in PWP history, as Donnie Peppercricket brutally attacked Chris Havius! He yelled that it was Havius’ fault, and hit him in the back multiple times with a steel chair! He then his Emerald Fusion maneuver onto the chair before leaving Havius lying in the middle of the ring.

NO… Donnie Peppercricket drops PWP official and close MWR friend Cody Murphy...Peppercricket how dare you!!!!(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

PWP Official Cody Murphy was in the ring immediately to check on Havius but his timing was too soon as Peppercricket, furious with rage returned to the ring and gave the Crew Member a Fire Thunder Driver! He then dragged Havius over the corner, put the chair on top of him and delivered a vicious Vader Bomb. The crowd was shocked as Peppercricket taunted them and left out the front door, on his way out, he taunted Havius’ girlfriend who was practically in tears after witnessing the beatdown. PWP Referees and Crew Members helped the PWP Official and Chris Havius to the back once Peppercricket was out of the building.

Abu Colossus came out, looking pretty upset at Preston Maxwell’s actions from earlier in the night, and he laid out a challenge for the show on November 13th. He challenged Preston Maxwell to PWP’s first ever Last Man Standing match! This is going to be brutal!

6.) “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Matty Star to retain the PWP Heavyweight Championship. This was just an amazing contest, it’s hard to do it justice by just describing it! This match is the reason you need to be at PWP Live Events, the action was so intense between the two! There were multiple times when either man could have been pinned, but a critical moment came when Star (and the crowd) thought he had the match won with a Falcon Arrow off the TOP rope! Somehow Cortez found the heart to kick out of the maneuver! Star went up top one more time, but it was a mistake as Cortez was able to capitalize and deliver the Ki Krusher that he has been using to pin his opponents lately and retained his coveted title. After the match Cortez and Starr showed each other respect and you could see that Cortez deemed Star a worthy opponent.

The next PWP Live Event is November 13th at the National Guard Armory in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Notes for the show so far:

The match has been signed and it will happen! Next month’s main event will be the first ever Last Man Standing Match in PWP: Abu Colossus Vs. Preston Maxwell. If a challenger cannot get to his feet to answer a 10 count from the referee, than his opponent will be declared the winner! This is not just a matter of who is the better competitor but also a matter of pride for Colossus as he has little patience for the games that Maxwell likes to play.

As a result of his heinous actions, Donnie Peppercricket has been fined a sum of $1000 and is suspended from competition for the duration of November.

PWP Heavyweight Champion “Babyface” Tony Cortez will be defending his title against an opponent that will be named in the coming weeks!

Thanks to all the fans who support us and we will see you on November 13th!

PWP’s Battle Of The Phoenix ’10 Photo Music Recap

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 12, 2010

MWR fans on August 21, 2010 we witness a thrilling night of wrestling at Pro Wrestling Phoenix with some of the top stars in the country. In the main event we witness Jaysin Strife jump over the top rope to allow Jayden Draigo to win the 2010 Battle of the Phoenix.

Thanks to our friends at Pro Wrestling Phoenix we have a full recap of the events including why Strife gave Draigo the win to go along with a music video of the amazing sights and punishing moves of each match.

PWP returns to action on September 18th in Council Bluffs and we highly recommend that you take the opportunity to check out a great night of wrestling.

As the evening started, “Babyface” Tony Cortez came out right away, and called out Jayden Draigo to finally fight him. Jayden came out to the ring and talked with Cortez about their history, and told Tony that the fans who loved him now were the same ones spitting on him and calling him Francis two years ago. He told him to make his own decisions and forget the fans then left the ring. As soon as Draigo left, “The Passion” Zac James’ music hit and he and Ryan Slade came out to the ring. Zac told Tony to put his title on the line right then and there, which most people assumed was Zac using his Anytime Anywhere title shot.

1.) PWP Heavyweight Championship: “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Zac James w/ Ryan Slade. This was an intense match with Zac showing a new intensity and focus on winning the championship. Unfortunately for him he fell short and Cortez retained his coveted title. After the match, Zac got on the mic and addressed the fans who were yelling at him that he wasted his title shot. He showed them the contract and pointed out that he never said he was using his title shot, and he never signed the contract, therefore, he still had his Anytime Anywhere contract for either PWP Championship.

2.) Sir Bradley Charles made his return to PWP and defeated Joey Daniels in a very back and forth contest. SBC pulled a lot of tricks out including a beautiful Northern Lights Suplex, but he finished it off with his TKO maneuver.

3.) A returning “Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell defeated Jayden Draigo via roll up when Tony Cortez appeared at ringside just long enough to distract Draigo.

4.) Matty Star finally got his revenge against “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt in this PWP classic. Both men used every ounce of strength & valor and kicked out of just about every move imaginable. The match ended when Star finally got the upper hand and nailed Wyatt with a Falcon Arrow from the top rope! This match is seriously one of the best contests in the 5 ½ year history of PWP.

5.) Abu Colossus defeated Preston Maxwell via disqualification when Maxwell had the Gator Roll Choke locked in on Colossus and refused to let go even when Colossus got his feet the the ropes. It took a few PWP officials to get Preston to break the hold who showed genuine frustration as he thought the match should have been his. He showed his lack of respect for Colossus who quickly gave chase.

6.) Jaysin Strife defeated Supafli in a fantastic match. Supafli proved to the PWP fans that he can hang in the ring with a former PWP Champion. This match also saw Supafli severely cut open his chin on a dive to the outside. In the end Strife pulled out the victory but both men showed each other respect afterwards. This match was also a classic that won’t soon be forgotten, and was easily the best performance we have seen in Supafli’s young career. He proved that the sky is the limit for this exciting masked star.

7.) PWP Tag Team Championship Match: Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket defeated The Beautiful Bodies of Brian Gott & Derek Cornell. The Bodies were close in this one but not close enough and the PWP fan favorites retained their titles. As soon as the Bodies were out of the way, Zac James’ music hit ONCE AGAIN and he came out, clearly signed the contract and received his PWP Tag Team Championship match along with Ryan Slade.

8.) PWP Tag Team Championship Match: Zac James & Ryan Slade defeated Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket to become the NEW PWP Tag Team Champions. During the match, Ryan Slade attempted to use the Canadian flag as a weapon, however the referee caught him and took the flag away setting it on the apron. In a shocking turn of events, ring announcer Axel Greece grabbed the flag and nailed Peppercricket with it as he was attempting a tag team finishing move with Havius! Zac James then hit the Sliced Bread #2 and we had new tag team champions. Afterwards Greece got on the mic, announced the winners of the match and proclaimed that he was sick of being made fun of, beaten up, not taken seriously, and that he would lead Zac & Slade to greatness. He also proclaimed that one of them would win the Phoenix Challenge!

9.) Jayden Draigo won the annual Phoenix Challenge! A lot of interesting things happened in the course of this match, including Havius & Peppercricket immediately going after Zac & Slade as soon as they got to the ring. Abu Colossus was the last entrant and as soon as he hit the ring he went immediately after Preston Maxwell who got eliminated while brawling with each other and probably didn’t even realize it. They kept fighting with each other outside the ring for a good five minutes, fighting their way back to the locker room. It came down to last years winner Jaysin Strife & Draigo, but Strife shocked the crowd by jumping out to the floor on his own! Draigo had the match won, but his look of glory soon turned to anger when Tony Cortez came out and the match was announced: Cortez would finally get his hands on Draigo September 18th when they fight one on one for the PWP Heavyweight Championship!

Strife then said to Cortez that a deal is a deal, and now that Cortez will finally get his hands on Draigo – he needs to remember that Strife did him a huge favor, and Cortez still owes him another shot at the PWP Title.

PWP fans! Battle Of The Phoenix 2010 was an incredible night full of shock and surprises! Join us on SEPTEMBER 18, 2010 at the Council Bluffs National Guard Armory for a huge night of live pro wrestling!

PWP HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP:
”BABYFACE” TONY CORTEZ VS. JAYDEN DRAIGO

Jayden Draigo has been a thorn in Tony Cortez’s side ever since he returned to PWP. Last month, Jaysin Strife jumped out of the ring and allowed Draigo to win the annual Phoenix Challenge. Tony Cortez came out and it became clear that a deal had been made. After months and months of Tony trying to get his hands on Draigo, it will finally happen! Will Tony Cortez continue to prove why he is the champion? Or will Draigo find a way to steal the title away from Tony?

PWP TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP:
ZAC JAMES & RYAN SLADE W/ AXEL GREECE VS. CHRIS HAVIUS & DONNIE PEPPERCRICKET

Last month saw Zac James finally cash in his Anytime Anywhere contract, and he cashed it in right after PWP Tag Team Champions Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket defeated the Beautiful Bodies. In a huge shock to everyone, former ring announcer Axel Greece attacked Donnie Peppercricket during their match allowing Zac & Slade to pick up the victory. He then announced to the world that he was sick of being joked on, not taken seriously and ignored, and he would lead these men to greatness. Havius & Peppercricket will no doubt be looking for huge retribution in this match, and they will be fresh. Who will take home the titles?

REMATCH:
JAYSIN STRIFE VS. SUPAFLI

One match that was talked about so much by all the fans from our August event was Jaysin Strife Vs. Supafli. Supafli has asked PWP officials for a rematch, and because there has been so much buzz about this match, they have agreed! You won’t want to miss this!

ONE SHOT CHALLENGE:
#1 Brett Young will be in attendance and word has it that he will be issuing his “One Shot Challenge!” Last time this happened, Abu Colossus answered the call and defeated Young. Will he taste defeat again, or will he come out victorious?

ALSO IN ACTION: Abu Colossus, Matty Starr, Preston Maxwell, Derek Cornell, Joey Daniels, Jay Johnson & more!

After toying with Angelus Layne, Jayden Draigo is despicable when he takes a cheap shot after the match. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

2.) Jayden Draigo defeated Angelus Layne. This was a case of Draigo toying with Layne, beating her mercilessly and refused to pin her. Instead he constantly dolled out more punishment before finally pinning her. Afterwards he cowardly attacked her with his Kendo stick.

Jimmy Rockwell looked to be on a roll till….(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

Preston Maxwell gets chopped in the corner.(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

3.) In what most would consider an upset, Preston Maxwell defeated Jimmy Rockwell with the Gator Roll Choke. Maxwell used the move in May to defeat Supafli and now used it to submit Rockwell.

Up and over goes Wyatt.(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

4.) Matty Starr earned his biggest win in PWP ever when he pinned “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt. Afterwards, Wyatt showed his anger by hitting Starr with The Lightning Spiral and berating him. After intermission, Matty came back out and told Wyatt he wasn’t finished with him!

5.) “The Passion” Zac James defeated Supafli. He brought a chair into the ring and when the referee took it from him, he smashed the clipboard that contains his PWP Anytime Anywhere Contract over Supalfi’s head and got the pin. James still has the contract that he can use for any PWP title shot and any time he chooses.

8.) In a match that will go down as one of PWP’s best ever, “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Jaysin Strife to retain his PWP Heavyweight Championship. During the match, Strife was down on the outside and Jayden Draigo came out and superkicked Cortez in the face! Strife did not see this and covered Cortez, but Tony was able to kick out. After the match, Tony demanded that Draigo face him, and Draigo refused and talked more trash on Cortez before leaving.

Thanks to all the fans for coming out for a great night of action! PWP will kick off our summer tour on July 24th at Emmanuel Church of the Nazarene (just down the road from Horseshoe Casino) in Council Bluffs, IA! This will be an outdoor show and it is going to be a blast! Directions and details to come very soon!

PWP’s 2010 Year of the Phoenix V Photo Recap by Gary Giaffoglione – Jayden Draigo returns

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 23, 2010

Photos by Gary Giaffoglione

The show started with a shocking return, as Jayden Draigo made his way to the ring. Draigo was a staple of the Omaha area wrestling scene for many years, but left PWP on very bad terms back in early 2006, so to see him again in the PWP ring came as quite a shock to many. Draigo went on to explain that the 4 men who had been collectively known as The Murder Militia had been on top of the company for a long run, but lacked the vision and guidance to bust through to the next level – which he was there to offer. He promised the PWP faithful that change was on its way.

*** Matty Star defeated Stephen Saint. After the match, The Murder Militia’s “Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt returned to PWP, and laid out both men. Wyatt went on to state that he was back, and coming for “his” PWP Heavyweight Title.

You can not trust the Rebel as Saint soon found out.(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

This brought out Jaysin Strife, the man who took the title from Wyatt – Strife and Wyatt then debated over their past accomplishments, which finally brought out “The Anarchist” Arik Cannon. Cannon said they all had done a lot to be proud of, but instead of talking about it – why not lace up their boots, and see who was the best in a 3-Way Dance later in the evening.

*** Abu Colossus defeated David Clark. Clark’s stock continued to rise, even in defeat, proving that this rookie is not to be taken lightly. However, Abu showed everybody once again that he is undoubtedly one of the strongest forces in PWP.

*** “The Canadian Sex Icon” Ryan Slade defeated Darin Corbin via DQ, stealing a page out of Eddie Guerrero’s playbook, making it look like Corbin had hit Slade with a flag pole, even though he did not.

*** PWP Heavyweight Champion, “Babyface” Tony Cortez came out and stated that he would be a fighting champion, but would be choosing his own challenger for the night, he chose “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell. Cortez obviously underestimated Rockwell, as Jimmy nearly had the match and the title won at several points. In the end however, Cortez showed that he truly is one of the very best, picking up the win.

After the match, Jayden Draigo came back out, to confront Tony Cortez. Draigo spoke about the history the two shared, both being pioneers for independent pro wrestling in the area, and even talking about how Draigo was the one to initially train Cortez. Jayden offered Cortez a spot in the Murder Militia, telling him to at least consider it.

*** Up next, The Murder Militia’s Mark Sterling & Joey Daniels were to challenge Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket for the PWP Tag Team Titles. An irate Havius came out alone, saying that he just found Donnie bloodied in the back. Sterling & Daniels kept yelling for Havius to simply forfeit the titles – however Havius insisted on fighting, even if it was 2 on 1. Havius held his own, but took a severe beating – until Jaysin Strife ran out, hoped into Chris’ corner, and stepped up as his partner. Strife cleaned house, until he was pulled out of the ring, and sent into the ring post by Jayden Draigo. With Strife out of the picture, Havius was overwhelmed by the odds, and Sterling & Daniels became the new PWP Tag Team Champions. The new champions celebrated with Draigo as they made their way to the back.

*** In the main event, “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt, Jaysin Strife, and “The Anarchist” Arik Cannon squared off in a fast paced, epic encounter. In the end, The Murder Militia’s Mark Sterling and Brett Young pulled Cannon out of the ring and held him as Joey Daniels laid a beating on him – while the referee was trying to get order restored, in the ring, Jayden Draigo hit Strife with a Super Kick, followed by Wyatt hitting The Lightning Spiral. The referee slid back in just in time to count the three, making Wyatt the winner.

After the match, Wyatt and Draigo put the boots to Strife, as Tony Cortez made his way to the ring applauding and smiling. Cortez got in the ring, and raised the arms of Draigo and Wyatt – but then in a shocking moment, Cortez hit a double Flatliner on both men, to a huge ovation from the crowd. Helping Strife up, Cortez and Strife then fought off the other members of the Murder Militia, before Draigo called them all back to regroup. The night ended with Cortez and Strife standing tall.

The Murder Militia appears to be stronger than ever, having reclaimed the PWP Tag Team Titles, and now with the guidance and vision of Jayden Draigo – however, the PWP resistance is far from dead as well. What will happen next? We’ll just have to wait and see!

We now look to Saturday February 13, 2010 – where Pro Wrestling Phoenix will hold it’s 50th EVENT!!

Details coming very soon!
