HVW ‘Construction of Corruption’ Jan. 10 arena report.

With a crowd of 131 at the River’s Edge Complex in Granite City, IL, High Voltage Wrestling put on their first show of the new year on Jan. 10. Filled with surprise matches, a St. Louis wrestling legend and a bold statement from TNT Keny G regarding his cage match that night, this was one show that left fans begging for more.

Prior to the 7:30 bell time, Luke Roberts announced that a special bonus match would take place pitting Max Archer and Cory Pillman against Cabal and Michael Morbid. Archer and Pillman brought the fight to Cabal and Morbid, who made his debut in this match with his manager Alicia. Despite their best attempts, Morbid and Cabal lost the bout, and then Morbid attempted to take his rage out on his competitors. At one point, Morbid held a member of the opposing team for a chair shot delivered by Alicia, but Alicia inadvertently hit Morbid, seemingly causing him to snap.

TNT Keny G then came to ringside and stated that if the team of himself and Wicked lost the cage match that he would retire from active competition. He then brought attention to the Wrestling at the Chase legend, Larry Matysik. “Future” Donovan Ruddick felt the need to make his presence felt, as he and The Magic Man interrupted Keny G and announced Dingo as the replacement competitor for the injured Ruddick. This prompted Keny G to announce that Dingo and Ruddick will face each other at some point in the future (no pun intended).

Mark Smart then came to ringside and claimed that he wanted to wrestle Dingo. This prompted a brawl to erupt in which Smart and Dingo battled, then Kahagas and Mephisto emerged to make their respective presences felt.

In the first Livewire match of the night, “Spoiled” Steven Kennedy took on Gary Jay in a stellar performance. From their energetic entrances to the action going on in the ring, these two men delivered a high-flying bout that had fans on the edge of their seats. Hold for hold, Kennedy and Jay matched each other in skill, intensity and athleticism. Jay ended the contest with a decisive pin and then proclaimed that he and Kennedy just had the match of their lives.

Following two of the most charismatic wrestlers in the Midwest, Jessika Haze made her St. Louis area debut against New Breed Wrestling Alliance’s Serenity. The two women wrestled a fairly even match up, with neither cementing a definite advantage over the other. However, Haze was able to cover Serenity for the three count.

The Blackhearts took on Mark Sterling and “Number One” Brett Young due to the fact that Sterling’s partner, Darrien Sanders, had a broken foot. Sterling and Young began the match poking fun at the Blackhearts for wearing masks, and they put on mask of their own that Sterling provided. Soon, however, both teams began working towards the goal of securing a victory. Young and Sterling used their pound-and-ground style to combat the more unorthodox style of The Blackhearts. Regardless of not teaming together on a regular basis, Young and Sterling worked surprisingly well as a cohesive unit. Sterling got the pin after Young connected with a leg drop from the top rope.

After the intermission, “Thee” Brandon Espinosa took on Rebel Lucha, but before the two even locked up, Espinosa exclaimed, “Rebel Lucha? I thought I was wrestling Jeremy Wyatt!” Lucha and Espinosa had an impressive match with multiple pinfalls and reversals. Neither man gained enough of an advantage to cover the other for the full three count. With three minutes remaining, Espinosa and Lucha each stepped up their game, but the match ended in a time-limit draw as Espinosa’s tag team partner, Brandon Aarons, ran to the ring from the crowd and attacked Lucha.

Reigning Six-Man Cup Champions Aaron Matthews, Cecil Cerveza and stand-in member Jeff Harris defended the cup against The Bandana Mafia of Evan Gelistico, Pierre Abernathy and Davey Vega. With the fans solely behind the ‘Mafia, they had the advantage before the first move was made. Matthews, Cerveza and Harris beat down on Vega the majority of the match up with Cerveza and Matthews both taking risks and flying from the top turnbuckle. After a lenghty battle, Vega finally made the tag to Gelistico who tore the competition apart. After a double-team by Gelistico and Abernathy, Gelistico won the match for the ‘Mafia.

A match of the year contender took place next when Kahagas and Dingo went at it. These two tremendous athletes battled both in and out of the ring, with neither giving an inch. With Ruddick and Magic Man at ringside, Dingo had all the protection in the world. Despite Kahagas’ determination matching Dingo’s, the extra presences surrounding the ring more than likely led to his defeat. Ironically, Dingo seemed enraged after the bout and stormed around the building throwing chairs into the ring, and he even went so far as to carry a trashcan to the ring and dump it out. Still filled with fury, Dingo made his way through the crowd to the concessions, launched a roll of paper towels at Kahagas and yelled, “Clean up your act!”

MWR Event Report: LWA on September 20, 2008

MWR Event Report:
Lethal Wrestling Alliance on September 20, 2008

By Kari Williams

On September 20 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in O’ Fallon, IL, the LWA brought yet another night of incredible, fast-paced action for all of the 93 fans in attendance, including the Superfans.

Six-Man-Mayhem: Shamus O’ Flannery v. Mephisto v. Michael Morbid v. Adam Rich v. “Thee” Brandon Espinosa v. Billy McNeil

Bodies flew every which way in the opening bout of the evening as these six men battled it out for an opportunity at the LWA Medallion. Every wrestler showcased his physical attributes, proving that they all deserved the win. This mayhem kicked off the show in tremendous fashion and set the stage for what would come. In the closing moments, Space Station Eleven’s own Billy McNeil pulled off an impressive victory.

Dorian Victor & Darin Childs v. “Spoiled” Steven Kennedy & JC Bravo

Two IWA-Texas stars, Childs and Bravo made their debuts in LWA. Both had a good showing, despite the dislike showed by the Superfans. Victor and Kennedy worked as cohesive units with their respective partners, showcasing the level of talent on the roster. In typical fashion, Victor and Childs attempted to cheat their way to victory on numerous occassions. However, it was not to be.

Luke Roberts’ Statement

Roberts made a point to come out and let all of the fans, as well as those in the locker room, know the consequences that may occur throughout the evening. He stated that if even one man from either the Bearded Men from Space Station Eleven or the Submission Squad came to the ring for any reason other than his match, every member from both factions would be immediately suspended for 60 days.

“Blackheart” Johnny Vinyl & “Spitfire” Davey Vega v. Evan Gelistico & Gary the Barnowl

After the no-contest in August between the Submission Squad and the Bearded Men, both teams sought vengeance. Gelistico and Gary dominated the majority of the match, which caused Vega to say “What you don’t know is that he’s got this perfectly under control,” referring to Vinyl, who had suffered some brutal punishment. The outcome of the match proved that Vinyl truly did have everything under control, as he knocked out Gelistico with a crowbar.

Michael Elgin v. Andrew Davis

In a battle of newcomers, neither man had the ability to win over the crowd, despite their athleticism and ability in the ring. Elgin and Davis wrestled a solid match filled with technical prowess, but with neither suceeding in gaining the fans acceptance, one could hardly know whom he or she wanted to win.

Dingo v. JT Lamotta

This fast-paced bout began with an impressive display of chain wrestling, immediately followed by a standoff between Dingo and the IWA-Texas star. The match showcased the greatest talent in the area, and beyond, giving all in attendance a look at the best wrestling in the area. Lamotta showed his skill and tenacity, and although he came up short, proved that he warrants a return to the LWA.

First Blood Match for the Heavyweight Title: “Future” Donovan Ruddick v. XXX Jordan Lacey

Ruddick and Lacey tore each other apart in their quests to retain or gain the title. They literally held nothing back as a ladder, a steel chair, a street sign, and even broken glass were brought into the mix. At one point, Lacey pummeled Ruddick with consecutive chair shots to the back. The broken glass became Ruddick’s downfall, despite him being the one to bring it into the mix.

The Aftermath

Only seconds after the bell rang, the Submission Squad attacked Lacey, prompting the Bearded Men—and the rest of the locker room—to come to the aid of their respective parties. Luke Roberts was at a loss of what to do, considering his threat earlier in the evening. During the ruckus, Lacey suffered an injury causing the show to end with a somber feeling.
