January 24 All American Pro Wrestling recap

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 7, 2009

Recap By AAPW Management with Picture commentary By Brian “Flair” Kelley

With freezing temperatures outside, over 160 fans were treated to hot action at New Beginnings Assembly for AAPW’s Fan’s Choice Show!

“Homicidal” Steven Davis and Carnage were introduced for the opening tag team bout. Davis came to the ring alone and told the crowd that his partner Carnage had been fired by their manager, Brooklyn Bobby, because Carnage had not won a match since May of 2007. Davis stated he refused to have a loser as his partner and introduced a replacement. Ax Stevens. Their opponents, The Money Makin’ Jam Boys, K.C. Jackson and Mississippi Madman. Jackson used his quickness to gain the early advantage but was soon shut down by Davis and Stevens. Davis and Stevens were able to cut the ring in half and keep Jackson from tagging his opponent but Jackson showed tremendous heart and never quit. Madman got the tag and used his size and power to finish off Stevens with a splash for the pin.

Fans had voted Jorden Vandal as the newcomer to AAPW. However, Vandal could not make it this night. Jay Spade received the honors. Spade, an undersized rookie took on the undefeated and mysterious Crimson Shock. Spade showed he was no slouch at the beginning but Shock beat down and mauled Spade the rest of the match. Shock applied a figure four leglock and used the ropes for added leverage. Shock refused to break the hold at the referee’s 5 count and the ref called for the bell. Shock became extremely upset and continued to let out his frustrations on Spade. TY BLADE came to the ring and pulled shock off the rookie. A confrontation ensued between Blade and Shock and SHOCK WAS UNMASKED by Blade! Gaylord Stevens, who ran to ringside, covered the mysterious wrestlers head and led him away from ringside. Stevens later offered a bounty to Ty’s opponent later in the night, Shawn Shultz, to retrieve the mask.

“Playboy” Paul Rose defeated El Magnifico in what can only be described as a comical match with a flatliner.

Mike Masters’s was in a nasty move prior to his match with Curly.

Curly, Missouri Wrestling Revival’s wrestler of the month and also undefeated as a rookie, took on Mike Masters. Curly’s unorthodox style was a bit much for Masters as Curly defeated him with an elbow drop.

Mike Masters had Curly reeling early in the match, but Curly proved that he has what it takes to beat one of the best in AAPW.

Venom, the wrestler fan’s voted to see make a return to AAPW, took on another big and powerful newcomer in Travis Sawyer. Sawyer is the son of Buzz Sawyer. Venom’s only advantage gained was with underhanded tactics but it was not enough as Sawyer used a cradle shock slam to get the pinfall.

Shawn Shultz came to the ring and got the crowd into a frenzy. His opponent, Ty Blade, came to the ring carrying the mask he removed from Crimson Shock. As Blade gained an advantage late in the match, Gaylord Stevens came to ringside to distract Blade and Shultz used a school boy roll up to get the pin. Although many saw Shultz use the tights.

Toe to toe Shultz and Blade went at it. On this night Gaylord Stevens would be the difference when he distracted Blade and Shultz took the advantage for the win.

AAPW fan’s voted to see Chocolate Thunder V. Tony Stetson in a Lumberjack match. The crowd was not disappointed. Fan’s were screaming from start to finish. Carnage came to ringside and attacked “Homicidal” Steven Davis. This surprised fan’s and the lumberjacks at ringside as Carnage beat on Davis throughout the gym. The brawl even got the attention of the wrestlers in the ring. Stetson took advantage and rolled Chocolate Thunder up for the pin.

At one point, both wrestlers brawled into the crowd. Livewire tossed Rich over the guard rail clear into the 3rd row! Livewire got Rich back into the ring and delivered a leg drop from the top rope which appeared to secure the victory for Livewire. RICH KICKED OUT! Livewire continued the assault and set Rich up for a superkick. Rich ducked and lifted Livewire onto his shoulders. Livewire fought out and went for a victory roll which the champion blocked and pinned Livewire’s shoulders for the 3 count.

Shane Rich showed on this night that he is one of the most complete wrestlers in the Midwest, here he works the air attack.

At the conclusion of the match, Livewire addressed the crowd. He expressed how disappointed he was and how sorry he was for letting down his fans. Livewire stated he would be taking some time off from wrestling. As Livewire said his goodbye, Shawn Shultz snuck into the ring and hit Livewire with a DDT. Shultz then stood over Livewire and berated him until Rich ran back to the ring for the save. Heated words were exchanged between Rich and Shultz. Security had to escort Shultz from ringside.

AAPW returns to West Frankfort on Saturday March 14th. This event will feature the fan’s choice tag team championship when The Lonrs take on “Spitfire” Davey Vega and “Blackheart” Johnny Vinyl.

AAPW March 15

LWA Yuletide Terror Dec. 20 Arena Report

Posted by reimaginejournalism on December 26, 2008

By Kari Williams

Every time LWA puts on a show, fans expect good wrestling, good entertainment and cheap beer. On Dec. 20 in House Springs, MO they delivered just that—and then some. With 130 in attendance, nearly every match set the bar for the next, and after the extreme tables, ladders and chairs match, not one person left the Knight of Columbus Hall in disappointment.

Billy McNeill and Evan Gelistico kicked off the show with a stellar performance that was flooded with animosity and anger. McNeill took the fight to Gelistico from the get-go, using his highflying tactics to his advantage. The former Bearded Men member slowed the pace shortly thereafter and connected with high impact moves on a number of occassions. Both men showed their athleticism and skill, but McNeill emerged victorious on this exchange. It seems the beard guide infographic they published as a joke was not so accurate (a joke statistic about their chances of winning in correlation to their beard sizes vs the opponent).

Following that stellar performance, Dorian Victor was scheduled to take on Shorty Biggs, but prior to Biggs’ introduction, Victor tried collecting money from the fans for a ‘sick’ Bavarian Boy, who happened to be sitting in the front row. Not one to leave empy handed, Victor did obtain three dollars from Biggs. However, he said it was to buy Victor a bra, not for Bavarian Boy. Victor put the money in his tights, and when Biggs and Victor tied up, Biggs retrieved his money. Many fans, specifically the superfans, did not care for this match—at all. These men put on a decent match with Biggs defeating Victor, despite the heckling.

Luke Roberts then made his way to ringside, accompanied by chants of “ASSASSINATE.” He announced that Vice President Jewells scheduled Jeremy Wyatt in a title match in Council Bluffs, IA. His next bit of news got a much better reaction. Roberts revealed that the briefcase he has carried around for so long contained the LWA Tag Team titles, and that the Tables, Ladders and Chairs match would determine the first-ever LWA Tag Team Champions, which elicited an “L-W-A” chant.

The next match put Mephisto against “Milwaukee’s Best” Rick Stone, but one could hardly call it a match. Mephisto pummeled Stone before the bell rang. Stone did not have a chance to get in any offense, and Mephisto quickly overpowered Stone and won the bout.

Gary the Barnowl took on “Future” Donovan Ruddick in the final match of the LWA title tournament. These men gave it their all and took remarkable risks in pursuit of the coveted title. The fans followed them with every kick, punch and powerbomb. Gary fought with every ounce of strength he had and then some. He kicked out of Ruddick’s finishing move, planted Ruddick to the ground and even attacked him ferociously on the outside of the ring. At one point, it appeared that Referee Eric Davis had reached a 10-count, then he said, “It’s not going to end like that,” and he helped Gary get Ruddick back in the ring. Despite multiple two counts for both men, Ruddick’s overwhelming power became too much for Gary, and the Ruddick earned a hard-fought victory. After the match, Ruddick extended his hand to Gary, who accepted, and then chants for Gary erupted.

After the intermission, Pierre Abernathy wrestled “The Technical Messiah” Nick Tyson in a classic match. Gelistico accompanied Abernathy to the ring, but the referee immediately removed him from ringside, which may have slightly altered Abernathy’s plans. Tyson and Abernathy matched each other hold for hold, neither wanting to give an inch. Just when it seemed like Tyson had the match won—and the Submission Squad would be 0-2—Gelistico re-emerged and interfered. The distraction allowed Abernathy to pick up a spoiled win, but Tyson came off looking like the better man.

The newly appointed LWA Commissioner Adam Raw made his way to the ring following the match sporting aviator glasses, which he threw out to a fan in the audience. After instigating a side v. side verbal war between the super fans and the rest of the audience, Raw announced that Wyatt successfully defended the LWA title. Just as Raw was about to go into a promo, the lights went off, and Mephisto confronted Raw, who responded to the entrance with, “With an entrance like that, I would’ve expected The Undertaker.” Mephisto put the locker room on notice, in a sense, by saying that he has been looking for someone just like him. He found this person in Shroud, who has yet to be introduced in the LWA. After proclaiming that, Mephisto said the era of violence and vulgarity has arrived.

In the following bout, B.A.B.E.WATCH was supposed to make their return. However, due to “Irresistably Flawless” Brandon Aarons’ extracurricular activities (according to “Thee” Brandon Espinosa), he was not able to wrestle. Therefore, Espinosa introduced Mike Sydal as an interim member of the tag team. Sydal said that Espinosa and himself have five things in common—“Shampoo, condition, shampoo, condition, (slight pause), condition.”

Shamus O’ Flannery and Super Electro took on the tandem, while Aarons observed the proceedings from ringside. Sydal and Espinosa worked surprisingly well together, despite having to contend with Super Electro, who shocked them every time they tried to lock up or attack him. In the end, Espinosa and Sydal defeated O’ Flannery and Super Electro. Then, adding fuel to the fire, so to speak, Sydal dumped ice water on Super Electro, which caused severe damage to the electric individual.

“Spitfire” Davey Vega, Dingo and The Ego Express (“Spoiled” Steven Kennedy and K.C. Karrington) wasted no time in starting the TLC match, as they busted through the hanging backdrop screen before either team made their entrance. Nobody was left unharmed, as chairs were brought into the mix early on, and the tables and ladders shortly followed suit. Fighting inside and outside of the ring, both of these teams proved that they deserved the belts. Every chair shot, every slam through a table, every punch, kick or slap had meaning behind it. The hatred between the two teams translated to the fans. Nevertheless, only one team stood above the broken tables, the battered bodies and the deformed steel chairs. That team was the Ego Express, LWA’s first ever—and most deserving—tag team champions. As risk-takers and innovators, these four men ended LWA’s year on a high note, possibly giving the match of the year for the Midwest.

Hoping to kick off the new year right, LWA will hold its inaugural double-shot, with the first show in Granite City, IL on Jan. 2 and the following night in O’ Fallon, IL.
