One wild night in Des Moines, Iowa leads to some dramatic weather of sorts in atmosphere. No, it didn’t rain inside the Forte Ballroom at All Play, but lightning did strike twice in the building. Here’s what happened, as described by one bystander on hand during the much hyped 3XW “Final Countdown 2” event, boasting the main event of 3XW champion “Iron Man” Mark Sterling putting the belt on the line against “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt in a rematch from their January 2011 blockbuster.
“Just before the Ironman main event, the lights went down and ring announcer Daryl Moon called for the “lucky ticket.” We will soon find out how lucky that ticket really was.”
No, not the record setting Mega Millions lottery ticket, but a raffle ticket drawn for the commemorative Ironman 2 title belt created by Asteroid Belt Company.
“The crowd was hushed and then it happened. Moon rattled off the numbers; a silence was broken when it happened, you know, the lightning striking twice.”
Sure enough, Joe Mastin let out a whoop and held up his ticket, claiming his 2nd belt raffle in a row! Many may remember Joe as the winner of the commemorative NWA-3XW title belt made by Asteroid Belt Company, marking the occasion of the NWA title match in January between then-NWA Champion “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce and Jeremy Wyatt.
“And All Play’s Forte Ballroom will forever be the birthplace of the new Belt Collector, Joe Mastin.”
So the legend goes that sometime in the near future, another title belt could make its way to town and then the world will wait in a hush as a ticket is drawn and you can bet that all eyes will be upon the Belt Collector…
