Lumberjacks, a Cage and FirePup in Swansea

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 15, 2016

By Patrick Brandmeyer

Our ring announcer was Drew Abbenhaus; your referees were Denny Thomas, Jay King, and Nick Ridenour.

A local young lady sang the National Anthem to start the show…nicely done. Promoter Herb Simmons acknowledged the many sponsors and supporters of SICW as well as the Swansea Fire Department prior to the show’s opening matchup.

nbwoctnl-5

Moondog Rover vs. Waco(w/ Big Daddy): Moondog OVAH remains one of the most popular competitors in the area.
nbwoctnl-16

Big Daddy’s main charge Vic The Bruiser has been gaining momentum, picking up a recent win over Sean Vincent and being scheduled to face Gary Jackson at the next East Carondelet show.

nbwoctnl-24

nbwoctnl-20

This was your standard-issue Moondog match, but Waco got the cheap rollup pin with a handful of denim in 6:57.

nbwoctnl-36

Larry Matysik paid a visit to say a few words to the fans in attendance. I shook his hand as he was leaving…unfortunately, I’ve only had a handful of opportunities to converse with Larry. If I’d remembered the raffle for a steak dinner with Larry and Herb, I would have brought more cash than I did…

nbwoctnl-49

Big Jim Hoffarth vs. “The Suplex Cyclone” Curt Gannon: Gannon recently made his St. Louis-area debut with a time-limit draw against Superstar Steve Fender in East Carondelet; this was my first time seeing him in person. He was able to execute a couple of very impressive suplexes on the 300-plus-pounder, living up to his nickname.

nbwoctnl-62

nbwoctnl-63

At one point Hoffarth accidentally threw Gannon over the top rope and the referee didn’t call for a disqualification…whoops. At any rate, Hoffarth rallied but missed a big splash off the second rope…Gannon took advantage with a hold called the Arachnid Clutch(a trapped-arm headscissors on the mat).
nbwoctnl-74

Not sure if it was a tapout or unconscious “submission”, but that was the ballgame in 7:02…slight upset there.

nbwoctnl-82

nbwoctnl-94

Flaming Freddie Fury vs. Purple Passion: THE REMATCH TO END ALL REMATCHES~! Fury and Passion entered together, but Herb told them that they were facing each other.

They did do more actual wrestling this time around, as opposed to going full comedy as they did in their previous bout.

nbwoctnl-106
This match also had an actual finish, as Passion won with a Fameasser in 5:51.

“Dead Sexy” Daniel Gunner vs. “The” Ace Hawkins: Hawkins was particularly insistent about the ring announcement, especially the pronunciation of his nickname(“THEE”).

nbwoctnl-122

nbwoctnl-126

nbwoctnl-140

nbwoctnl-142

Gunner had a size and power advantage(as one heckling fan noted to Ace: “Why are you so tiny?”), but Ace used his speed and agility to gain an advantage. Gunner had a strong effort, but Ace rolled up him with feet on the ropes for the cheap win in 9:30.

nbwoctnl-149

nbwoctnl-152

nbwoctnl-173

“Your Canadian Hero” Sean Vincent vs. “Unstable” Dave Vaughn: These two have feuded for the past several months; Vaughn has been intent on turning Vincent into a “villain” again. The match was pretty good despite a few sloppy spots; Vincent just barely got Vaughn up and over for a backdrop in the early minutes of the match.
nbwoctnl-170

These two have worked together enough times that they’re familiar with each other(SCOUTING~!); Vincent picked up the victory after a Death Valley Driver in 11:01.

nbwoctnl-179

“Ironman” Ken Kasa vs. “Volatile” Curtis Wylde(w/ Wyldefyre), Lumberjack Match: The Swansea firefighters were the lumberjacks and made their entrance to “Proud To Be An American”. It took some time for them to get their cue…I had to make the wisecrack that, per Ben Simon, they were waiting for the beat to drop.
nbwoctnl-192

nbwoctnl-197

Wylde tried to walk away from the match, only to be blocked by the mascot Firepup and carried back to the ring by the firefighters. In terms of working for its intended purpose, I would consider this the best match of the night; Wyldefyre got another “Shiny Pants Has No Butt” chant, if I remember correctly.
nbwoctnl-200

nbwoctnl-225

nbwoctnl-234

nbwoctnl-228

nbwoctnl-239

Wyldefyre tried to interfere and a firefighter carried her away from ringside on his shoulders…hey, we just saw a fireman’s carry by an actual fireman! *ducks thrown objects* Firepup blinded Wylde with a fire extinguisher and Kasa capitalized with the John Wu Dropkick to win in 10:37…nicely done.

nbwoctnl-242

Classic Champion Ron Powers & “Night Train/Gorgeous/Great One” Gary Jackson vs. Attila Khan & Brandon Espinosa(w/ Travis Cook), best-of-three-falls cage match: This was a brawl from start to finish; Khan was left bloody, as has become tradition.

The match seemed rushed from my perspective, but the fans liked it and that’s what counted. Khan pinned Jackson after hitting him in the throat with his fork in 3:24. Jackson gave him a taste of his own medicine with a throat shot with the fork, pinning Khan to even the score in 5:10(total).
nbwoctnl-256

nbwoctnl-258

nbwoctnl-261

nbwoctnl-270

(Everyone’s favorite domestic terrorist Travis had the chutzpah to complain about Jackson’s use of the foreign object.) Espy scaled the cage to deliver a cross-bodyblock onto Powers & Jackson. (The cage wasn’t particularly tall compared to those in bigger promotions, but it was still a cool visual.) Travis threw a chair into the cage and decked the official on the arena floor, leading to Espinosa using it to clean house; however, he couldn’t score the deciding fall on either opponent. Khan picked up Jackson for a bodyslam, but fell over Powers in a schoolboy trip and Powers dropped an elbow on Khan for the final fall in 8:30(total); all right then. Powers defends against Espinosa at the East Carondelet show on the 19th…that should be a very interesting bout.

nbwoctnl-279

nbwoctnl-281

(EDIT 11/13: The TV show reminded me of more details from the bout; Travis actually entered the cage after striking referee Jay King in an attempt to interfere, then tried to get Espy out of the cage for the win only to find out that escaping the cage wasn’t an official way to win…heh.)

Battle Lines Drawn: Powers Under Fire From All Sides

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 7, 2016

By Patrick Brandmeyer
Photos Brian Kelley

Promoter Herb Simmons started the show by acknowledging the recent passings of Gypsy Joe and Muhammad Ali. Gypsy Joe was a bit before my time, but he had in-ring wars in his later years against such opponents as New Jack and Necro Butcher. Quite a few of the wilder rasslin stories in history involve the name of Gypsy Joe, to say the least. Herb also noted that it was the birthday of the late Bruiser Brody, segueing into the ten-bell salute.

“Your Canadian Hero” Sean Vincent vs. Britton Tucker: Tucker is not well-liked in East Carondelet; one female fan was particularly irate about Tucker’s mere presence and Tucker promised to take her out to Olive Garden after the show. Bwahahaha.
sicwlr-1

sicwlr-2

sicwlr-3

sicwlr-4

They had a solid opener and Vincent appeared to be on the verge of winning with his Mapleleaf Leglock, but “Unstable” Dave Vaughn entered the ring and blatantly attacked TUCKER…thus getting Vincent disqualified in 7:44. Har har. Afterwards, Vincent reaffirmed that Vaughn would not turn him back into a “villain” as he insisted he would.

sicwlr-5

sicwlr-6

sicwlr-7

“The Fury” Jason Vaughn vs. “The Incredible” Matt Kenway (Look At Him): We have two guys in SICW with the last name of Vaughn…cue the MARKET CONFUSION~! Kenway was substituting for Ax Allwardt(Vaughn’s scheduled opponent).

sicwlr-8

Vaughn’s two young children were in attendance and were VERY vocal in their support of their father. Kenway did a good job in the rulebreaking role and targeted Vaughn’s arm, but Vaughn made El Big Comeback and got the figure-four leglock out of nowhere for the submission in 6:08.

Bobby D vs. “Unstable” Dave Vaughn: Vaughn’s transition into Heath Ledger Joker continues with the similar hair and the eye makeup. Vaughn controlled most of the matchup, but had trouble putting D away and went for a chair.
sicwlr-9

sicwlr-10

sicwlr-11

sicwlr-12

sicwlr-13

That brought out Vincent to confiscate the weapon, leading to Bobby D getting the rollup pin on a distracted Vaughn in 5:14. Vaughn didn’t seem too upset about the loss, laughing about how Vincent’s interference proved that he truly was reverting to his old ways…more on this as it develops.

sicwlr-14

sicwlr-15

Flaming Freddie Fury vs. Purple Passion: WHEN EFFEMINATE MASKED WRESTLERS COLLIDE~! The fans in attendance had no idea what to make of this encounter, though I heard several people call out “This isn’t wrestling!”

sicwlr-16

The two ended up falling into 69 position on the ring apron and both were counted out in 5:43. The two literally left arm-in-arm.

sicwlr-17

“Dead Sexy” Daniel Gunner vs. Brandon Espinosa(w/ Travis Cook): . Travis started out by loudly complaining about the previous match, asking if Vince Russo had booked it. Espinosa followed suit, continuing his mindset that he’s above everyone else in the promotion by insulting several members of the locker room…that included his scheduled opponent for the evening.

sicwlr-18

sicwlr-19

sicwlr-20

sicwlr-21

This was a solid matchup with Gunner doing better than I would have expected. At any rate, Espy got the cross-armbreaker out of nowhere for the tapout in 7:18.

Big Jim Hoffarth vs. Bubba Troll(w/ Big Daddy): Hoffarth won last month’s Bruiser Brody Memorial Battle Royal and Troll was the last man eliminated, so Troll obviously wanted some payback in this battle of super heavyweights. I jokingly throw around “#ClubbingForearms” at times like this, but it’s not like we’re gonna see a lucha-style match out of these guys. I’m often told that casual fans would rather see a “fight” than a “wrestling match”, at any rate.

sicwlr-22

sicwlr-23

sicwlr-24

sicwlr-25

sicwlr-26

sicwlr-27

In a slight surprise, Troll got the win after a splash off the second rope in 8:30…Drew tried to get a word with Hoffarth afterwards, but he wasn’t feeling up to an interview after BEING SPLASHED FROM THE SECOND ROPE BY A LARGE OPPONENT. Timing, Drew.

sicwlr-50

sicwlr-51

sicwlr-52

“Night Train/Gorgeous/Great One” Gary Jackson & “Ironman” Ken Kasa vs. “The Icon” Chris Hargas(w/ Travis Cook), “St. Louis Handicap Match”: Hargas & Espinosa defeated Kasa in this style of match in May, so Hargas wanted to prove that he could do what Kasa couldn’t. The match had a fifteen-minute limit and the tag team would win if the single wrestler couldn’t win a decision in that time frame. Kasa wanted to fight on his own and asked Gary to stay outside the ring…so the match was basically a singles bout with Gary doing his beset to thwart interference attempts by Travis Cook.
sicwlr-53

sicwlr-54

sicwlr-55

sicwlr-56

Travis was able to get involved enough that the referee was distracted after Kasa delivered the John Wu Dropkick…at that moment, Jackson chased Travis back to the dressing room area. Kasa locked on a version of the rear naked choke as the time limit ticked down, but Hargas didn’t tap out until RIGHT after the closing bell sounded at 15:00. Technically Jackson & Kasa won the match, but Kasa wanted a decisive victory…so the July show will feature a thirty-minute Ironman Match between Kasa and Hargas. Goodie.

sicwlr-57

sicwlr-58

sicwlr-59

sicwlr-60

sicwlr-61

sicwlr-62

sicwlr-63

Johnny Blade vs. “The Tokyo Monster” Kahagas(w/ Travis Cook): Blade returned to the St. Louis area fairly recently after previously being a regular for both SICW and the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance. Kahagas won with a pumphandle Michinoku Driver in 5:54.

sicwlr-64

sicwlr-65

sicwlr-66

Ron Powers vs. Attila Khan for the Classic Title, Travis Cook Banned From Ringside: The past two months of Wrestling Explosion have attempted to compare this rivalry to Bruiser Brody vs. Abdullah The Butcher, as Powers is a protege of the late Brody and Khan has a similar style to the “Madman From The Sudan”. This wasn’t a technical classic and wasn’t expected to be…Khan played that popular Memphis game of “Where Oh Where Could The Foreign Object Be?” Hey, it ticks off the fans and that’s what counts for a rulebreaker. Ron had control when the rulebreakers’ locker room essentially emptied on Khan’s behalf to cause the DQ in 3:53. It started with Bubba Troll, then continued with Brandon Espinosa, Chris Hargas, and Kahagas with Big Daddy attempting to direct traffic.
sicwlr-67

sicwlr-68

sicwlr-70

sicwlr-69

It took a while for the fan favorites’ locker room to get the memo, but finally Ken Kasa and Gary Jackson hit the ring to help. Once they brought chairs into the fray, the rulebreakers backed off…that wrapped up the show.

Keith Smith, Danny Boy & ‘Gorgeous’ Gary Jackson defeated Shaft, Dave Vaughn & MMWA-SICW Heavyweight Champion Phil E. Blunt (special referees Tony Casta & ‘Big’ Jim Brown) in a 6-Man Tag Team Elimination Match at 32:50 when Smith finished off Shaft with a UFC-style leglock. After the match, the entire Connection attacked Smith ruthlessly (Jackson was eliminated early on in the match and was in the shower preparing to leave) in the ring. Danny Boy had his hands full but the former Champion did overcome the bad guys and save Keith.

Do not miss MMWA-SICW when they return to South Broadway this Saturday.
