PWP Results September 18, 2010
At the beginning of the show, Jayden Draigo came out and once more berated the fans and called “Babyface” Tony Cortez out to hear him out.

Once Draigo put his hands on the PWP Heavyweight Championship, Cortez slapped him and left the ring. As he was exiting, Draigo grabbed his Kendo Stick and swung at Cortez, only to have him catch the stick and take it with him to the back!
1. #1 Shot Challenge: Matty Starr defeated #1 Brett Young
#1 Brett Young came out and issued a #1 Shot Challenge to anyone in the building. Out came Matty Starr much to the fans delight! This was a great back and forth contest with Starr rolling Young up out of nowhere for the three count!

After the match, Starr asked for the microphone and thanked the fans for all their support. He said its time he challenges for the PWP Heavyweight Championship and he doesn’t care who wins later in the night, he wants them in the ring in October!
2. Triple Threat: Joey Daniels defeated Derek Cornell & Buck Albright
This was a very intense Triple Threat match as a returning Albright was looking to start fresh in PWP while both Daniels & Cornell need the win to move up the ranks in PWP.

Highlights include a huge powerbomb neckbreaker off the top rope including all three men. Daniels sneaked into the ring and rolled up Albright to get the much needed win!

3. Rematch: Supafli defeated Jaysin Strife
This was a rematch from August 21 where Supafli showed the PWP fans that he could hang with a former PWP Heavyweight Champion. This match has to be seen to be believed! Amazing back and forth action between these two, as Strife showed his frustration, underestimating the masked man from Mexico City, IA.

All sorts of innovative maneuvers came out of nowhere from both men but when Strife attempted a powerbomb, Supafli quickly rolled through, and had enough leverage to hold Strife down for the three count and the upset win! Strife seemed shocked at the end result, but he raised Supafli’s hand out of respect as the audience cheered.

As we came back from intermission it was announced that PWP Officials had decided to grant Matty Starr a PWP Championship match on October 16, 2010!
4. Preston Maxwell defeated “Rock N Roll” Mike Sydal
Abu Colossus’ music hit the arena speakers, however he did not come out. Preston Maxwell strolled out to his music, mocking his every move and mannerisms. Maxwell proceeded to insult the absent Colossus on the microphone, until his challenger, a returning Sydal came out. Sydal with a new style and energy attempted to use many traditional wrestling holds to subdue Maxwell during the match.

A turning point occurred when Maxwell sidestepped the turnbuckle and Sydal flew into the ring post.

The referee helped Sydal fix his injured shoulder but the damage had been done and when Maxwell locked on the Gator Roll Choke, Sydal couldn’t take the pain and tapped out immediately. You can be sure when Colossus hears about the disrespect showed by Maxwell, he will not be happy.
5. PWP Tag Team Championship: Zac James & Ryan Slade w/ Axel Greece retained the Championship over Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket.
Before the match former PWP Ring Announcer Axel Greece got on the mic and berated his replacement, PWP Official BJ Bunten. He then offered Havius & Peppercricket a choice, they could go to the back and forget the match was ever supposed to happen, or they could do it the hard way. I think we all know which way the PWP favorites chose! This was a great tag team contest showing not only Havius & Peppercricket’s hatred for the Canadians but also the tightness of both teams. You could see the chemistry flowing and with Axel Greece in the corner it was a rough time for Havius & Peppercricket.

Unfortunately Greece was too much and as Slade baited Peppercricket into a brawl on the outside the PWP Referee Guy Walken followed them allowing Greece to hit Havius with his cane in the ring and James covered him as the referee returned to the ring and counted the three count. Havius & Peppercricket were livid and demanded that they get one more chance. They said this time, if they win, they get Axel Greece in the ring after the match for 5 minutes!

Surprisingly, Greece accepted immediately, showing no fear and confidence that James & Slade could pull out a hat trick win.
6. PWP Heavyweight Championship: “Babyface” Tony Cortez retained the Championship over Jayden Draigo
Months and months of torture, disrespect and anger came to a head in the main event of the evening. It seemed like Draigo was right around the corner of Cortez’ every move and was able to get the upper hand more than once.

Cortez showed his tremendous heart and resilience after kicking out of not only 1 but 2 superkicks. You could see the look of shock on Draigo’s face! What happened next was probably the most controversial moment in PWP history. Cortez hit his finishing move, the Pacifier, on Draigo however Draigo’s feet knocked PWP Senior Referee Bryan Whitman out cold in the process. Cortez covered Draigo and the crowd counted along with him as he counted 1,2,3,4,5. Cortez got up to revive the referee and unfortunately this allowed Draigo to grab his Kendo Stick and nail Cortez over the head with it! Draigo dragged the referee over, and he counted the pinfall, 1,2,3! The referee called for the bell, however, PWP Official BJ Bunten refused to ring it! He couldn’t believe his eyes and refused to end the match because of the vicious Kendo Stick shot. He went to the back and brought out PWP Referee Guy Walken as Draigo got the microphone and grabbed the title and began berating the fans and celebrating.

As Bunten returned with the other referee, the two refs and Bunten began arguing over what happened. As this was going on, Cortez got up and hit a spinebuster on Draigo! The second referee ran into the ring and counted the pin but it was only a two count! As Referee Whitman angrily left the arena, Cortez hit a crippling suplex into piledriver type move to finally get the three count and retain the PWP Championship. As Bunten announced the winner over the house microphone, the fans cheered Cortez and laughed at Draigo. Draigo left the arena but did exclaim that you would not see the last of him in PWP.
Check the PWP Message Board for a statement from PWP Officials regarding the decision in the main event!
It was an incredible night of action and it will be interesting to see what happens next month! Already announced:
PWP Heavyweight Championship Match: “Babyface” Tony Cortez Vs. Matty Starr.
These two men are arguably the most beloved members of the PWP roster. Now they are putting it all on the line for the fans and Starr has an opportunity of a lifetime to taste the glory of the silver strap!
PWP Tag Team Championship Match: Zac James & Ryan Slade w/ Axel Greece Vs. Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket.
If Havius & Peppercricket win, they get Axel Greece alone in the ring for 5 minutes! If James & Slade win, Havius & Peppercricket can never challenge for the PWP Tag Titles again as long as James & Slade are champions! This could get very interesting!
More will be announced soon! Thanks to all the fans for supporting us!
