At the beginning of the show, PWP Tag Team Champions Zac James & Ryan Slade came out along with “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece. Greece explained that if Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket lost, they could never have another tag team title shot as long as James & Slade were champions. However if they won they would get Greece in the ring for five minutes after the match. They made fun of the crowd for a few minutes before Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket came out. They chased them out of the ring, and Chris Havius told them to up the stakes a little bit. He made the challenge to make the match a Tornado Tag match, which the Champions accepted!

1.) Sir Bradley Charles defeated Jayden Draigo. This was a very technical opening bout, and Draigo didn’t seem like his usual self. In the end, SBC got what most would consider and upset win over Draigo with his TKO maneuver.

2.) “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell defeated Zach Thompson. You could tell that each man was familiar with the other’s work as there were reversals all over the place. In the end Rockwell laid out Thompson with the sit out Gordbuster and hit his Rock-On Bomb off the top rope to get the 1-2-3.

3.) Joey Daniels defeated David Clark. Clark, returning to the ring after a lengthy stay in China was looking to pick up where he left off by taking Joey Daniels out. There was a lot of action here, and Clark showed an amazing array of Suplexes and holds. However Daniels had his tricks up his sleeve as well, and capitalized on one small mistake Clark made to pick up the victory in this one. During the match, Jayden Draigo was observing from the entrance area, and afterwards, he got in the ring and whispered something in David Clark’s ear. We are not clear what the meaning of this is and are trying to get some more details. Clark declined comment on the matter.

4.) Abu Colossus defeated Preston Maxwell via Disqualification. Colossus was looking for revenge against Maxwell after last month’s mockery of the Big Hurt. However, during Colossus’ entrance, Maxwell sneak attacked him and they started brawling on the outside of the ring. They threw each other into walls and chairs as the referee tried to get them into the ring to start the match! Maxwell reversed a whip into the ring post and it seemed like Colossus was hurt. He rolled him into the ring and demanded the referee ring the bell but only got a two count. Some back and forth action between the two happened before Colossus set up for his big Full Nelson Slam, but Maxwell took the cheap way out by kicking him straight in the crotch! The referee rang the bell and Maxwell locked the Gator Roll Choke on Abu, refusing to let go.

It took two referees and about 5 minutes before Maxwell finally let Colossus out of the hold and you could tell he was very proud of himself as he went to the locker room.

5.) Zac James & Ryan Slade w/ Axel Greece defeated Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket to retain the PWP Tag Team Championship. This match broke down fast with the Tornado rules in place, and it seemed that every time Havius tried to get in the ring to stop Peppercricket from getting double-teamed, they would knock him back outside. The end came when Slade whipped Havius into the ring post causing a deep laceration requiring stitches to close. Meanwhile James hit the Sliced Bread on Peppercricket, and Slade followed it up with a splash from the top rope to retain their titles and save their manager from a beating. Elated, the champions left knowing they will never have to face the duo again.
What happened next was perhaps on of the most shocking moments in PWP history, as Donnie Peppercricket brutally attacked Chris Havius! He yelled that it was Havius’ fault, and hit him in the back multiple times with a steel chair! He then his Emerald Fusion maneuver onto the chair before leaving Havius lying in the middle of the ring.

PWP Official Cody Murphy was in the ring immediately to check on Havius but his timing was too soon as Peppercricket, furious with rage returned to the ring and gave the Crew Member a Fire Thunder Driver! He then dragged Havius over the corner, put the chair on top of him and delivered a vicious Vader Bomb. The crowd was shocked as Peppercricket taunted them and left out the front door, on his way out, he taunted Havius’ girlfriend who was practically in tears after witnessing the beatdown. PWP Referees and Crew Members helped the PWP Official and Chris Havius to the back once Peppercricket was out of the building.

Abu Colossus came out, looking pretty upset at Preston Maxwell’s actions from earlier in the night, and he laid out a challenge for the show on November 13th. He challenged Preston Maxwell to PWP’s first ever Last Man Standing match! This is going to be brutal!

6.) “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Matty Star to retain the PWP Heavyweight Championship. This was just an amazing contest, it’s hard to do it justice by just describing it! This match is the reason you need to be at PWP Live Events, the action was so intense between the two! There were multiple times when either man could have been pinned, but a critical moment came when Star (and the crowd) thought he had the match won with a Falcon Arrow off the TOP rope! Somehow Cortez found the heart to kick out of the maneuver! Star went up top one more time, but it was a mistake as Cortez was able to capitalize and deliver the Ki Krusher that he has been using to pin his opponents lately and retained his coveted title. After the match Cortez and Starr showed each other respect and you could see that Cortez deemed Star a worthy opponent.
The next PWP Live Event is November 13th at the National Guard Armory in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Notes for the show so far:
The match has been signed and it will happen! Next month’s main event will be the first ever Last Man Standing Match in PWP: Abu Colossus Vs. Preston Maxwell. If a challenger cannot get to his feet to answer a 10 count from the referee, than his opponent will be declared the winner! This is not just a matter of who is the better competitor but also a matter of pride for Colossus as he has little patience for the games that Maxwell likes to play.
As a result of his heinous actions, Donnie Peppercricket has been fined a sum of $1000 and is suspended from competition for the duration of November.
PWP Heavyweight Champion “Babyface” Tony Cortez will be defending his title against an opponent that will be named in the coming weeks!
Thanks to all the fans who support us and we will see you on November 13th!
