Welcome to New York… It’s Rush Hour and time to shake-up the company following the departure of four wrestlers…

So with our finances tanking, but our costs down, we’d run two shows this month, make sure we put them in the right region (both Tri-State) and hope to make a small amount of money. What could go wrong.

NYCW Rush Hour 2017 in Memory of The Stomper
Thursday, Week 2, March, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York
Attendance: 2,000

TAG TEAM MATCH: The Mighty INVADERS defeated Legacy (Robin DaLay and the debuting Bret Heartbreak) in 7:51 when Animal Harker defeated Robin DaLay by pinfall with a Stump Piledriver. (D+)
Good opener and great start for the newly revamped Legacy. Sure they’d lost all the popular and super-talented guys. But they continue the tradition at the very least.

SINGLES MATCH: Garry The Entertainer defeated Donte Dunn in 8:07 by pinfall with a Pants Pull Sunset Flip. (D)
Isn’t it sad when you get a great chemistry note involving a departing wrestler. Donte eats the pin as a goodbye to NYCW and Garry gets a much-needed win.

ANGLE: Serpent Strike cut a promo hyping their upcoming match with The Heartbreak Express. They’re just the final roadblock before the inevitable showdown with The Grand Slam and their ascent to the top of the card. (C-)

TAG TEAM MATCH: Serpent Strike defeated The Heartbreak Express in 7:35 when William Jetterson defeated Ralph Liotta by submission with a Viper Vice. (D+)
Wanted Jetterson to specifically get the pin to try and bridge the gap in popularity between him and Barrowman. Another solid match for the Express too.

ANGLE: Ross Henry cuts a promo saying that his friend Ernest Youngman proved just what a man he is by sending Chord packing. As a thank you, he wants to offer him an Empire Title match… Tonight. (B)

NYCW TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Grand Slam (c) defeated New Southern Stars in 22:40 when Bulldozer Brandon Smith defeated Joffy Pinkerton by pinfall. (C-)
I’m not quite ready for The grand Slam to lose their titles just yet. But it’s good to know that the Southern Stars can bring the goods against the top team in NYCW. They’d be a rematch at some point.

ANGLE: Harvey Robbinfield is out. He’s realised that while being a lone wolf is normally a good thing. There are times that having a running mate is necessary. He might be the Omega Man, but he’s found a new partner… The Alpha Man… Fro Sure. Together they’re gunning for all the power in New York City. (D+)

TRIPLE THREAT MATCH: Harvey Robbinfield defeated Brutus Milano and The Masked Mauler in 6:27 when Harvey Robbinfield defeated Brutus Milano by pinfall with an Omega Driver following interference from Fro Sure. (E+)
Quite how Robbinfield has moved so far up the card in such a short time is beyond me. But never let it be said I don’t listen to what the crowd want. Plus we needed a new heel team for the main event.

ANGLE: Ernest Youngman cuts a promo saying that he’d be happy to test his metal against the Empire Champion. It’ll be nice to prove to everyone that he is really the man. And to be the man, you’ve got to beat the man. (C+)

SINGLES MATCH: Fro Sure defeated The New York Doll in 7:42 by pinfall with a Sure Thing. (D-)

ANGLE: Ross Henry makes an elaborate entrance. (B+)

NYCW EMPIRE TITLE MATCH: Ross Henry (c) defeated Ernest Youngman in 22:43 by pinfall with an Earthquake Powerslam following interference from Fro Sure and Harvey Robbinfield. (C)
Great match from two of our best faces. The intereference from Alpha and Omega positions them as the antagonists to Ernest and Ross going forward and acts to protect our Tri-State champion in defeat. Beautiful.

ANGLE: The match is over and having chased Alpha and Omega away, Ross Henry is celebrating. Ernest Youngman walks over and offers his hand as a sign of respect, and the two competitors shake hands. (B-)
Awwww, you guys. A bromance is born.

OVERALL: D+

Seems an overly harsh rating to me.

In the post-show news we found out Robin DaLay has relocated to the Tri-State area. Good, company man that Robin. We forgot to extend New York Doll’s contract and Donte Dunn left us. In the third such move Steve Flash took Ralph Liotta on as a protégé.

Next time on Welcome to New York… Another day, another big name announces his plans to leave, and we continue the build towards Ernest/Henry vs. Alpha and Omega…

Welcome to New York… where the streets are paved with gold, but we can’t get our hands on any of it…

I was really hoping my maths was correct, otherwise the following show was going to absolutely cripple us.

NYCW Old School Wrestling
Monday, Week 4, March, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York
Attendance: 2,000

NYCW TRI-STATE TITLE MATCH: Ernest Youngman (c) defeated Joffy Pinkerton in 10:28 by pinfall with The Hit. During the match we also saw Alpha and Omega run in and attack Youngman. (C-)
Great match from Ernest again.

ANGLE: Alpha and Omega are beating down Ernest Youngman in the ring, when Ross Henry runs in to make the save. Alpha and Omega are left beaten as The Grand Slam come out for their match. (C-)

NYCW TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Grand Slam (c) defeated Alpha and Omega in 9:37 when Steve Flash defeated Fro Sure by pinfall with a Flash Bang. (D+)
Easily explainable loss for the new bad boys of NYCW as they’ve already received a beating from two of our best. I love logical story-telling. It so rarely actually happens in wrestling.

ANGLE: Ross Henry cuts a promo thanking Ernest Youngman for his help recently and how they’ll never let Alpha and Omega near the gold. (B)

NYCW EMPIRE TITLE MATCH: Ross Henry (c) defeated Tennessee William in 13:09 by pinfall with an Earthquake Powerslam following interference from Alpha and Omega. During the match we also had Ernest Youngman accidentally hit Henry while trying to protect him from Fro Sure. (C-)
Another great singles match for Tennessee William here. But the big story is Alpha and Omega causing issues for our two heroic champs.

ANGLE: Serpent Strike cut a promo hyping their upcoming match with The Mighty… INVADERS. (C)

TAG TEAM MATCH: The Mighty… INVADERS defeated Serpent Strike in 22:53 when Animal Harker defeated Thom Barrowman by pinfall with a Stump Piledriver. (C)
There is a reason for this specific outcome, and it’s as irritating as it is timely. By the way, The Mighty… INVADERS now use Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin as their intro music and it’s BOSS!

OVERALL: D+

That’s right, Thom Barrowman has signed a written contract with NOTBPW. He’ll keep the name he’s been using with us while up there, but it does mean Serpent Strike are done and they never quite got their hands on the tag gold.

But then again, we were paying Barrowman over $2,000 per appearance and having come 2nd in both regional battles, we only lost $2,326. Maths dictates without him on the card, we can actually turn a profit in April.

Happy times.

Next time on Welcome to New York… Ross Henry and Ernest Youngman finally get Alpha and Omega in a tag team main event special, at Rumble in Brooklyn...

Welcome to New York… Where debt is just a dirty word…

It was April and time for Rumble in Brooklyn with a massive tag team main event. Let’s see what happens next with the Golden Boys and Alpha and Omega.

NYCW Welcome to New York 11: Rumble in Brooklyn
Monday, Week 2, April, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York
Attendance: 2,000

ANGLE: The lights in the arena go out and Carmina Burana plays over the speakers. In a spotlight on the ramp is the debuting Aldous Blackfriar. Apparently it’s his destiny to destroy New York and he’s not alone. This, is his prophecy. (D)
Not a stellar start, but his gimmick is catchy.

TAG TEAM MATCH: The Prophecy (Aldous Blackfriar and William Jetterson) defeated The Heartbreak Express in 8:04 when Aldous Blackfriar defeated Johnny Needham by pinfall with a Satanic Super Kick. (E+)
That’s right, we immediately replace Barrowman with a younger, cheaper star. There’s no chemistry notes between the two, but they’ve got a win under their belts already and their gimmicks are far better suited to one another.

SINGLES MATCH: Garry Walker defeated Brutus Milano in 7:59 by pinfall with a Pants Pull Sunset Flip. (E+)
The former Garry the Entertainer has taken his real name in an attempt to be taken more seriously. And he gets a nice win against one of our original roster stars. Brutus is still fairly brutal in the ring however.

TAG TEAM MATCH: The Mighty… INVADERS defeated Legacy in 7:32 when Logan Wolfsbaine defeated Robin DaLay by submission with a Boston Crab. (D+)
DaLay and Heartbreak continue to learn the ropes at the expense of one of the hottest teams in New York. Decent match too.

ANGLE: The Mighty INVADERS cut a promo saying they’re sick of the New Southern Stars running their mouths. It’s put up, or shut up time. Animal Harker mainly grunted during the segment. Now play me some of that sweet, sweet Immigrant Song… (C-)
Logan is a great interview it appears. He’s a real workhorse of the company. Might be time to move him on to bigger and better things soon.

NYCW TAG TEAM TITLES: New Southern Stars drew with The Grand Slam (c) in 12:44 when the referee lost control and stopped the match. The match also had a lot of interference: Aldous Blackfriar targeted Bulldozer, William Jetterson attacked Flash, Logan Wolfsbaine attacked Joffy P, and finally Animal Harker interfered against Tennessee William. (D+)
A good match which progresses many stories at once. It also immediately puts the Prophecy into the tag title scene as a replacement for Serpent Strike.

ANGLE: Tennessee William cuts a promo saying he’s sick of Animal Harker always being in his business. (D)
Eurgh, not so good right there. Not good at all.

SINGLES MATCH: Kip Keenan defeated The Masked Mauler in 8:26 by pinfall with a Belly To Belly Suplex. (E)
Welcome to New York, Kip Keenan. What an awful match. He’d blame Mauler because he’s old, but also untouchable.

ANGLE: Youngman and Henry cut a promo hyping their upcoming match with Alpha and Omega. Apparently they’re going to win. Then Henry adds “Providing you remember to hit them and not me.” Ernest looks embarrassed. (B-)

TAG TEAM MATCH: Harvey Robbinfield and Fro Sure defeated Ernest Youngman and Ross Henry in 24:49 when Fro Sure defeated Ernest Youngman by pinfall with a handful of tights after Henry accidentally blasts Youngman with a lariat. (C)
Great match and Alpha and Omega get the biggest wins of their careers over two of the top stars in the promotion. We protected them sure, but at the end of the day, the mind games are clearly working.

OVERALL: D

Disappointing overall rating, but a great show from a storyline perspective. After the show Steve Flash pulled me aside to tell me that despite what Ernest says, he thinks Joffy Pinkerton is a star in the making. Meanwhile Harvey Robbinfield wanted a pay rise of $550 more on what he was earning. Smart cookie that Harvey. We gave it to him, because he’s integral to the future shows.

With that we rolled straight onto the next show.

NYCW Old School Wrestling
Monday, Week 4, April, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York
Attendance: 2,000

NYCW TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Grand Slam (c) defeated The Prophecy (Aldous Blackfriar and William Jetterson) in 7:44 when Bulldozer Brandon Smith defeated William Jetterson by pinfall while using the ropes for leverage. (C-)
Very good match from the new team here as the champs continue to drag the division to good match after another. I think we’re going to have to run this one again.

ANGLE: The Grand Slam cut a promo saying that the young ‘goth kids’ did ok and if they wanted a rematch, they’d be game. (C)

SINGLES MATCH: Logan Wolfsbaine drew with Tennessee William in 10:08 when the referee lost control and stopped the match. (C-)
All out brawl to further the Stars vs. INVADERS feud. Logan is awesome as always, Tennessee continues to impress in singles action.

ANGLE: Logan Wolfsbaine cuts a promo saying he’ll destroy anyone, at anytime, especially a New Southern Star. (B-)
Great, fired-up promo from Logan here.

NYCW TRI-STATE TITLE MATCH: Ernest Youngman (c) defeated Harvey Robbinfield in 13:27 by pinfall with The Hit. During the match we also had Fro Sure run in and attack Youngman. (C-)
Ernest drags Robbinfield to his best match so far (and no doubt a further request for a bigger push or more money). This thrown together feud has some legs I’d say as all four competitors are young and hungry enough to bust their asses.

ANGLE: Youngman and Henry cut a promo saying they may have been beaten (Ernest to Ross “Thanks to your errant lariat”) but they’re stronger and they’ve learnt. No more losses to a couple of punks like Alpha and Omega ever again. (B-)

NYCW EMPIRE TITLE MATCH: Ross Henry (c) defeated Fro Sure in 22:15 by pinfall with an Earthquake Powerslam. (C)
Good match and clean finish. I like Fro Sure a lot, but there’s no way I’m letting him win the big belt at this stage. He can’t even beat our secondary champion yet. But happy to test him as a main eventer. He did well.

OVERALL: D+

We ended up 2nd in both battles and… MADE A PROFIT of $6,452. With that small win, we agreed to a full pay rise to Logan Wolfsbaine and signed a new worker (Quinton Parent) to a cheap enhancement contract. He immediately made friends with William Jetterson. Smart kid.

Elsewhere Rick Sanders announced his plans to retire from the sport. It seemed an age ago that he was an integral part of our roster. The more things change… the more they… change, I guess.

Next time on Welcome to New York… Ross Henry vs. Fro Sure… Ernest Youngman vs. Harvey Robbinfield… The Rematches…

Welcome to New York… Where we’re happy to run the same matches with the same results and hope for better outcomes… Is that madness?

Not much going on between the end of March and April. But before the next show Empire Champ Ross Henry setup and ran a waffle bar. Class act that guy.

NYCW Welcome to New York 12: Henry/Fro Sure II
Monday, Week 2, April, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York
Attendance: 2,000

GANG WARS MATCH: Brutus Milano and Legacy defeated Kip Keenan and The Heartbreak Express in 8:10 when Bret Heartbreak defeated Johnny Needham by pinfall with a Heart Attack. (E+)
It’s a classic ‘get em on the card’ match. And look at whose gone and got themselves a win. The Brutus half-assed push continues.

TRIPLE THREAT MATCH: Garry Walker defeated Quentin Parent and The Masked Mauler in 5:58 when Garry Walker defeated Quentin Parent by pinfall with a Pants Pull Sunset Flip. (E+)
Another win for burgeoning star Garry Walker.

NYCW TAG TEAM TITLES: The Grand Slam (c) defeated Aldous Blackfriar and William Jetterson in 8:03 when Bulldozer Brandon Smith defeated William Jetterson by pinfall after using a foreign object. (C-)
The champs aren’t above cheating to win it seems. Another good match for the new team. Maybe a third matchup is worth it down the line.

NYCW TRI-STATE TITLE MATCH: Ernest Youngman (c) defeated Harvey Robbinfield in 13:14 by pinfall, illegally using the ropes for leverage. (C-)
Aaaand Youngman wins again. Robbinfield is still cruising off the success in the tag match, so can take a loss here. Plus it might deflate his ego and his demands a little bit too. Interesting to note Youngman cheated to win though. Doesn’t strike me as the type to need to cheat to win.

ANGLE: Youngman and Henry cut a promo hyping their feud with Alpha and Omega. They promise continued victory, especially in their upcoming tag match at Old School Wrestling (Ernest to Henry – “Providing you do your job of course.” – followed by awkward laughter). (B-)

TAG TEAM MATCH: New Southern Stars defeated The Mighty… INVADERS in 10:07 when Joffy Pinkerton defeated Animal Harker by pinfall with a handful of tights. (C-)
More cheating. Welcome to New York, where there is never a clean finish. Logan and Animal have won plenty of matches, it was time for Tennessee and Joffy to get some semblance of revenge. Job done. Sadly no Immigrant Song to end this match. Sad times for all.

ANGLE: Ross Henry makes an elaborate entrance. (B+)

NYCW EMPIRE TITLE MATCH: Ross Henry (c) defeated Fro Sure in 28:08 by pinfall with an Earthquake Powerslam. (C)
Another good match with these two and a clean win for Henry.

ANGLE: Youngman and Henry are celebrating their victory in the ring. Alpha and Omega run in and attack, beating them down into the mat. (C-)

OVERALL: D+

Good show. It seems elsewhere that BCG are going bankrupt. At least it’s not just us then. Onwards…

NYCW Old School Wrestling
Monday, Week 4, May, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York
Attendance: 2,000

TAG TEAM MATCH: The Mighty INVADERS drew with New Southern Stars in 10:26 following a double count out. (C-)
Southern Stars take the first, the second is a draw.

ANGLE: New Southern Stars cut a promo demanding a final match with The Mighty INVADERS. It’s time to settle the score, once and for all. (D)
Ugly promo work considering the talents these men have.

NYCW TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Prophecy (Aldous Blackfriar and William Jetterson) defeated The Grand Slam (c) in 12:56 when Bulldozer Brandon Smith was disqualified while fighting William Jetterson. (D+)
The young upstarts get a victory over the champs, but sadly only by DQ. Big win for the new team as I look for something new for the champs to focus on. The tag division is HOT at the moment, so the title change must be significant.

ANGLE: Youngman and Henry cut a promo hyping their upcoming match with Fro Sure and Robbinfield. (B-)

TAG TEAM MATCH: Fro Sure and Harvey Robbinfield defeated Ernest Youngman and Ross Henry in 30:24 when Harvey Robbinfield defeated Ernest Youngman by pinfall with an Omega Driver. (D+)
Ooooo, clean loss for the champs here. Massive result for Alpha and Omega.

ANGLE: Youngman and Henry are arguing about their loss in the ring. Fro Sure and Robbinfield run in and attack, beating them both down into the mat. (D+)

OVERALL: D

There’s trouble in paradise it seems. You can have all the momentum in the world, but a loss is a loss.

In regional battles we came second in Mid-Atlantic and last in New England. But who cares, we made $4,377 profit. Woop!

Next time on Welcome to New York… GANG WARS, main evented by Youngman and Ross vs. Alpha and Omega III…

Welcome to New York… Where the good guys are happy to throw down with one another…

NYCW Gang Wars
Sunday, Week 4, June, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York
Attendance: 2,000

GANG WARS MATCH: Quentin Parent and Legacy defeated Kip Keenan and The Heartbreak Express in 8:01 when Robin DaLay defeated Johnny Needham by pinfall with a DaLay Down. (E+)
Standard opener with all the scrubs. More victories for Legacy.

ANGLE: Joffy Pinkerton and Tennessee William say that they’ve been missing a piece in their goal of complete domination. But now they’ve got it. Out comes their new bodyguard… The Hangman. (C-)
Originally Texas Hangman, I’ve decided he’s a monster who isn’t limited to his region. STRONG start and Great gimmick.

GANG WARS MATCH: The Hangman and New Southern Stars defeated Garry Walker and The Mighty INVADERS in 12:47 when The Hangman defeated Garry Walker by pinfall with a Choke Slam. (D)
And a huge opening match win for the monster. I have big plans for him going forward, because of his look and his LOW price.

ANGLE: Henry and Youngman cut a promo hyping their upcoming match with Fro Sure and Robbinfield. (B-)

GANG WARS MATCH: The Masked Mauler and The Grand Slam defeated Aldous Blackfriar, William Jetterson and Brutus Milano in 12:54 when The Masked Mauler defeated Brutus Milano by submission with an Iron Claw. (D)
Mauler wins. Mauler wins. Mauler wins. Finally after almost a year he gets a win. I do not have big plans for him sadly.

ANGLE: Ross Henry and Ernest Youngman make an elaborate entrance. (A)

TAG TEAM MATCH: Fro Sure and Harvey Robbinfield defeated Ernest Youngman and Ross Henry in 24:55 when Harvey Robbinfield defeated Ernest Youngman by pinfall with a handful of tights after Henry accidentally speared Youngman. (D+)
Ooo, Alpha and Omega really do have the champions’ numbers. Ouch. And then, immediately after the young punks steal a win…

ANGLE: Ross Henry is apologising to Ernest Youngman for misstep, but Youngman is looking angry. Henry offers him a handshake, which Youngman reluctantly accepts… BAM! And he clocks him the Hit. He then proceeds to take a chair to Henry, beating him mercilessly into a bloody pulp as the crowd watch on in horror. (C)

OVERALL: D+

That’s right folks. Ernest was unstoppable on his own, and it was only when Henry was around that he started to lose. Not content with being second best to anyone, he snapped and destroyed his former friend.

And thus a monster heel is born. I am excited, and a little turned on.

We had to quickly hire Ted Ross to take over on colour commentary after Ernie Turner’s contract expired. This would save us a few pennies at least. And really at our size, how important is colour commentary?

Brutus Milano’s contract was also up and I decided not to re-sign him. Larry disagreed however and gave him a healthy pay raise. It pays to know the boss it seems.

NOTBPW, having stolen a tonne of workers from us. were on the rocks. They’ve fallen to Cult and I’m now eyeing up their roster with mild interest.

We ended the month coming second in Mid-Atlantic and last in New England, but we did finish with a $3,586 profit. Lovely.

Next time on Welcome to New York…Henry/Fro Sure III…

Welcome to New York… Where all great things must come to an end…

So with the golden boy Ernest Strongman having turned himself heel in the most shocking way possible, I suddenly realise my roster is horribly uneven at the top end in terms of face stars. Other than Henry, I only really have Bulldozer and Flash (who are tag team champs) as opposed to Fro Sure, Harvey Robbinfield and Ernest on the heel side.

Time to start making some moves in that regard. Time to elevate and reorder the roster. That’s right, Ernest Youngman is so vital to the promotion that his change in disposition actually effects the entire roster.

Anyway, let’s get on with this story…

NYCW Welcome to New York 13: Henry/Fro Sure III
Sunday, Week 2, July, 2016
Pennysylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York City, New York
Attendance: 2,000 (SOLD OUT!)

GANG WARS MATCH: Garry Walker and The Heartbreak Express defeated Brutus Milano and Legacy in 8:27 when Garry Walker defeated Brutus Milano by pinfall with a Pants Pull Sunset Flip. (E+)
Hello rematch. Not much to note here other than Garry Walker and the heartbreak Express finally getting some love. Legacy have won enough recently, time to give something to the good guys.

SINGLES MATCH: The Hangman defeated The Masked Mauler in 5:51 by pinfall with a Choke Slam. (E-)
Ugly match again from our new resident monster. Sure he lacks the skills, but… he’s big. I guess. More work required, but for now he can just squash Mauler a few times to build some of that sweet, sweet momentum.

TRIPLE THREAT MATCH: Harvey Robbinfield defeated Quentin Parent and Kip Keenan in 7:41 when Harvey Robbinfield defeated Quentin Parent by pinfall with an Omega Driver. (D-)
Didn’t have much for Omega to do tonight as will become apparent later on, so used him early and gave him the win. Quintin Parent is NOT good. I feel bad for Kip though, he’s decent but always loses.

NYCW TAG TEAM TITLES: New Southern Stars defeated The Grand Slam (c) in 12:40 when Joffy Pinkerton defeated Bulldozer Brandon Smith by pinfall with a Death Spiral following interference from Aldous Blackfriar and William Jetterson. New Southern Stars win the NYCW Tag Team titles. (D+)
That’s right, it’s time to get the titles off The Grand Slam to free them up for some main event goodness. Annoyingly I would’ve given the belts to the Prophecy, but they’ve already fought three times recently. And actually, I’ve just sort of cut them out of the hunt as the titles are on a heel team. I may not have thought this through properly, especially with what happens later.

ANGLE: The MIGHTY… INVADERS come to the ring to the sweet sounds of Immigrant Song, but Cobra and Blackfriar run in early and attack Wolfsbaine so viciously that he’s carried out of the arena on a stretcher. Animal vows to avenge his former partner. (D)

HANDICAP MATCH: Aldous Blackfriar and William Jetterson defeated Animal Harker in 8:15 when Aldous Blackfriar defeated Animal Harker by submission with a Gloomweaver Clutch. (D)
Not a particularly good match here, which may be the case without Logan knocking around. Shame really because I do like the MIGHTY… INVADERS. But I wanted to keep the new heel team strong. But they’re running out of viable competition.

ANGLE: Ross Henry makes an elaborate entrance. (C+)

NYCW EMPIRE TITLE MATCH: Ross Henry (c) defeated Fro Sure in 11:42 by count out after Ernest Youngman ran in and attacked Henry and Fro Sure, but forgot to slide the challenger back in the ring. (C-)
Decent, if unspectacular match right here.

ANGLE: In the ring Ross Henry is being attacked by Ernest Youngman, Alpha and Omega. It’s vicious and calculating. Then Ernest turns his attention to Fro Sure and Harvey Robbinfield, beating them within an inch of their lives. He grabs the mic; “For over a year I’ve been representing this City, with this belt. But I’ve had enough. I’m not from New York, I’m Chicago MADE, and proud as a representative of the second city! Actually y’know what, it’s not the second city, this cesspool I’m standing in is the real SECOND city of this country. Look at you all. Pathetic! This city has nothing! No heroes, no stars, no-one who can stand in my way!”

Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin starts…

(C-)

NYCW TRI-STATE TITLE MATCH: Logan Wolfsbaine defeated Ernest Youngman (c) in 27:53 by pinfall with an INVADER Suplex. Logan Wolfsbaine wins the NYCW Tri-State Regional title. (C)
That’s right people! The streak is finally over at 22 defenses, Ernest Youngman, Chicago’s favourite son loses clean as a whistle to Logan ‘The INVADER’ Wolfsbaine. That is how you get the title of a champion like Ernest. By having him try and fail to beat the next big thing. He wasn’t that happy about losing, but whatever, he was moving on up.

OVERALL: D

Disappointing result considering the quality of the main event it must be said. But a quick look at the prestige of the titles in NYCW and the Tri-State Regional is now rated at B-, while Empire is B and the Tag Team Titles have dropped from C+ to C following the title change.

I know it doesn’t make sense to have one half of our best face tag team holding singles gold, but the fact is, as much as I love the INVADERS, Logan is a dynamo ring general just waiting to step into the main event. There’s no point holding him back with Animal when he could be tearing the house down over the secondary title. It also made sense for Ernest to move on. He’s done everything he can with the Tri-State Title now. He’s beaten everyone and he needs to be free to pursue the Empire Title.

Still, one more show to increase our revenue for the month and next month we’re going to shoot for the moon with the early rounds of the second annual King of New York tournament.

Next time on Welcome to New York… Old School Wrestling returns AND we look at the brackets for this year’s 32-man edition of the King of New York tournament…

Welcome to New York… Where we’ve got plans, big plans… HUGE PLANS in fact…

On with the second show in July.

Old School Wrestling
Sunday, Week 4, July, 2016
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York City, New York
Attendance: 2,000 (SOLD OUT!)

NYCW TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: New Southern Stars (c) defeated The Mighty INVADERS in 9:50 when Tennessee William defeated Animal Harker by pinfall with a Devil's Crossroad. (C-)
And in an immediate reversal of what I said, I job out the Mighty INVADERS immediately. Animal took the pin so that we could keep Logan strong. This also finally blows off the Destruction of the Southern Stars storyline. Good match too.

SINGLES MATCH: Bulldozer Brandon Smith defeated Aldous Blackfriar in 7:41 by count out. (C-)
The Grand Slam have one more tag title rematch in their locker and this is the buildup to it. Good match.

SINGLES MATCH: Steve Flash defeated William Jetterson in 8:14 by pinfall with a Flash Bang. (D)
Here’s the other half and a far worse match. Actually really disappointed.

ANGLE: Ernest Youngman is out with a microphone; “Y’know what, we from the Second City… sorry, FIRST CITY of Chi-Town are lone wolves. We fight our own fights like men. I may hate Ross Henry, but I don’t like Alpha or Omega either. They’re nothing but a bunch of nobodies! That being said, no man is an island. With that in mind, I’ve enlisted some help. I got me a bodyguard. You’ve met him before, but he’s realised I’m the right man to watch the back of. Ladies and gentlemen… The Hangman.” (C-)
Utterly wasted with the New Southern Stars, but alongside Ernest he could well find his talents growing and growing. With his look, he could have a huge future. I just need to book him right. Speaking of which…

SINGLES MATCH: The Hangman defeated Kip Keenan in 4:24 by pinfall with a Choke Slam. (E+)
Better match than last time and with a similar result. I think if I’m careful and keep him to singles dominations and tag team matches with Ernest he might end up looking like an unstoppable MONSTER.

SINGLES MATCH: Ernest Youngman defeated The Masked Mauler in 4:40 by pinfall with The Hit. (D-)
Speaking of domination. Ernest wanted to show the world that he’s just as dominant as Hangman. And here’s the proof. Comfortably his worst match ever I think. Thankfully for the Masked Mauler, he’s Logan’s Mentor. Might be time to transition him out of regular work though. There’s a little juice left in his tank, but not a lot.

ANGLE: Ross Henry makes an elaborate entrance. (B)

NYCW EMPIRE TITLE TRIPLE THREAT MATCH: Ross Henry (c) defeated Fro Sure and Harvey Robbinfield in 21:42 when Ross Henry defeated Fro Sure by pinfall by using underhanded tactics. (C-)
Poor Alpha and Omega, they’re becoming something of a main event job squad. They win in tag matches, but always, always blow the big title matches. Fro Sure has to date, not one a thing having been with the company for over a year. Still, decent match.

OVERALL: D

I sat down in my office after the show and checked the latest results from around the independent wrestling scene. I had a mad plan y’see. I was confident of making money this month, so it was time to escalate the volume of shows I ran per month. If I worked out a rolling crew of workers, I could bleed the Tri-State area dry of fans and actually make a decent amount of cash in the interim.

So starting the following month, we’d run ‘Welcome to New York,’ ‘Old School Wrestling’ and ‘Stomping City Showdown’ in honour of the great man himself.

On those shows we’d be running qualifiers for the second annual King of New York tournament, which would culminate in the winner getting a shot at the title at Showdown in the City II. We’d also invite workers from around the independent scene to join to, basically the top champion from each member of the Confederation of Territories.

Therefore, the brackets look like this.

Preliminary 32:

Ernest Youngman
Bradley Blaze (MAW)

Garry Walker
El Critico (OLLIE)

Bulldozer Brandon Smith
Rajah (4C)

Harvey Robbinfield
Marvel Malloy (IPW)

Fox Mask (CZCW)
Aldous Blackfriar

Steve Flash
Billy Russell (FCW)

Johnny Needham
Robin DaLay

Ralph Liotta
Madman Boone (PSW)

William Jetterson
El Pavo Real (CILL)

Logan Wolfsbaine
Quintin Parent

Fro Sure
Nicholas Lopez (EMLL)

Kip Keenan
Bret Heartbreak

Jake Idol (GSW)
Joffy Pinkerton

Animal Harker
Brutus Milano

Tennessee William
The Masked Mauler

Scythe (RIPW)
The Hangman

Next time on Welcome to New York… The Confederation hear of the tournament plans and call a meeting…

COTT Headquarters…

The room was packed with the nine owners and head bookers of all members of the Confederation of the Territories. As normal Sam Keith sat at the head of the table with Mean Jean Cattley to his side.

“Thank you for coming gentlemen, I think you can agree this has been a very productive meeting, if there isn’t any other business…”

“I got business,” growled Larry. “Me and the kid are running our yearly tournament.”

“So?” said Mitch Naess of PSW.

“So, punk, we’ve thrown out loan offers to your champion… What’s his face?”

“Madman Boone,” I replied after checking my notes.

“What!” snapped Naess. “You can’t do that. Sam, tell him he can’t do that.”

“Actually according to the by-law of the COTT he is well within his rights. There is a limit to the number of loans in a month though.”

“We’ll spread it over two months,” replied Larry.

“Then I don’t see a problem with…”

“YOU DON’T SEE A PROBLEM!” shouted Naess. “YOU DON’T SEE A PROBLEM? The problem is, Chairman, he’s going to job them out. All of them. All of our champions. He’ll make them look like chumps you can’t get through.”

“Not necessarily the case,” said Larry with a smirk.

“HE’S LYING! C’mon, who is Boone facing in round one?”

I checked my notes again, “Errr, Ralph Liotta.”

“THE JOBBER FROM MID-ATLANTIC.”

“He’s a fine worker Mitch,” interjected Keith.

“I don’t care if he’s the second coming of Optimus! He’s not in Boone’s league. I demand if our champion is going to be in this dog and pony show that he at least gets to the semi-finals.”

“You’ll book my show, the day that I die Naess. Shut your pie hole!” fired back Larry.

The room fell silent again and after the breathing had died down, Sam wrapped his fist on the table. “Alright then, I think we’re done here. See you all in a few months. Good luck with everything.”

Without another word, the gathered attendees stood up and left. Outside in the hallway, I went to ask Larry a question, but he put his hand up and answered his mobile phone instead. Muffled and frantic conversation followed and when it was over, he simply said “We’ve got somewhere to be. Get the car.”

***

Three hours later…

Larry hadn’t said a word for the whole journey. He’d just sat there scrolling through documents on his phone. Whenever I’d tried to start to talk to him, he’d shut the conversation down with a hand wave or a grunt.

Outside the car window was a wide open expanse of farmland, with the occasional windmill or shed. As the seemingly endless road continued in a straight line ahead of us, a large, chrome and white building started to form alongside the road. As we got closer and closer, I noticed, above the building and sailing in the wind was an American flag, fluttering like crazy. Beneath it, written in black letters was the word…

Reverie

Next time on Welcome to New York… We begin the preliminary rounds of the Second Annual King of New York tournament…

Welcome to New York… Where we’re expanding our battles to all sides, because history tells us that always works…

We made a small profit of $3,812, which convinced us to run the expanded King of New York tournament. And now it appears we’re now regional battles in the following:
Great Lakes – 2nd (PSW then MAW)
Mid-Atlantic 2nd (PSW then MAW)
New England 2nd - (PSW then RIPW)
Tri-State – 2nd - (PSW then RIPW)

In the truly big global news, a competitor to Reverie was launched. Netstream as it’s known, is set to take the States by storm, but of course, we already knew that. Or at least, Larry did. I never actually got to sit in on the meeting he had at Reverie and my attempts to find out more were answered with ‘they’re worried.’

But with all that sorted, there was no point waiting around. It was time to start the tournament.

NYCW Welcome to New York 14: Road to the Throne II
Monday, Week 2, August, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York City, New York
Attendance: 2,000 (SOLD OUT!)

KONY QUALIFIER: Bulldozer Brandon Smith defeated Rajah in 8:13 by pinfall with a Backdrop Driver. (D)
Disappointing opener all in all. Obviously I’m not going to have Rajah go over Bulldozer and he didn’t do nearly enough for us to consider giving him a contract. Must be a Canadian thing.

KONY QUALIFIER: Robin DaLay defeated Johnny Needham in 6:25 by pinfall with a DaLay Down. (E+)
Nice enough match considering the popularity of those included. Legacy remain a work in progress though.

KONY QUALIFIER: Kip Keenan defeated Bret Heartbreak in 9:50 by pinfall with a Belly To Belly Suplex. (D-)
Where one succeeds, the other fails. Kip moves on after a rare win in a somewhat disappointing match in a series of them.

ANGLE: Logan Wolfsbaine cuts a promo saying that he’ll put the Tri-State Title on the line in every one of his qualifying matches, and he’s also happy to answer Brutus Milano’s challenge. (C+)
He’s a fighting champion and a hero to the people.

KONY QUALIFIER: Logan Wolfsbaine defeated Quentin Parent in 5:51 by submission with a Boston Crab. (C-)
Logan could wrestle a broom handle to a C- match it seems. Young and inexperienced Quentin threatened to drag the match down, but Logan had his working boots on today.

KONY QUALIFIER: Ralph Liotta defeated Madman Boone in 8:24 by pinfall with a Swinging Neckbreaker. (E+)
Well Mitch Naess wasn’t wrong. OF COURSE we jobbed out their top champion. These two had great chemistry too. HUGE win for the protégé of Steve Flash, although we were a little disappointed with the rating. Again.

ANGLE: Ernest Youngman says that his ‘main man’ The Hangman is ready for the challenge of RIPW’s Scythe, who in reality is a poor man’s Hangman. (B-)

KONY QUALIFIER: Scythe drew with The Hangman in 4:46 following a double count out after botth men fought into the crowd. (D-)
That’s right, we’re going with the ‘One guy gets a BYE’ storyline. We liked Scythe a lot, but didn’t want to ruin the mystique of The Hangman so soon. They’re effectively two halves of the same whole.

KONY QUALIFIER: Steve Flash defeated Billy Russell in 11:52 by pinfall with a Flash Bang. (D)
Another big win for one half of The Grand Slam. But yet again, a poor match. I have not been impressed with any of the outsiders so far. I had high hopes too.

KONY QUALIFIER: Aldous Blackfriar defeated Fox Mask in 7:44 by submission with a Gloomweaver Clutch. (D+)
Actually the best match from an outsider so far, but even Coastal Zone legend Fox Mask couldn’t really bring the goods. That’s fine though, Larry hated the ‘jumpin bean’ workers anyway. Good win for Aldous.

KONY QUALIFIER: Harvey Robbinfield defeated Marvel Malloy in 7:38 by pinfall with an Omega Driver. (D-)
Another pretty good chemistry note between these two and another sub-standard match. This is turning into one of those shows where the story is great, but the action is lacking. Have the crowd noticed a trend in the COTT workers win/loss records yet?

ANGLE: Ross Henry makes an elaborate entrance. (B)

NYCW EMPIRE TITLE: Ross Henry defeated Ernest Youngman in 22:40 by pinfall after using a foreign object. (D+)
And the third, and potentially final showdown between the two is the most disappointing yet. The crowd, probably exhausted from hours or poor matches couldn’t bring themselves to care. I don’t really blame them.

OVERALL: D

So yeah, that wasn’t great. Hopefully the next round would be better. But I wouldn’t bet on it. In FCW Joffy Laine (AKA Pinkerton) defeated Ross Henry for the COTT Heavyweight Title. I didn’t know what to do with that information to be honest. Would I somehow write that into our shows? Probably not.

Next time on Welcome to New York… The rest of the qualifying round of the King of New York, and an induction into the NYCW Hall of Fame…

Welcome to New York… Where we recognise a King over an Emperor…

BCG finally went pop and closed it’s doors for good. As we head into the sweet 16 for the King of New York Tournament, Steve Flash pulled a rib on the locker room, which had them in hysterics. Brutus Milano showed his creative side and drew cartoons and Garry Walker was pulled in front of Steve Flash and the court. Wacky bunch our lot.

NYCW Old School Wrestling
Monday, Week 3, August, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York City, New York
Attendance: 2,000 (SOLD OUT!)

KONY QUALIFIER: Garry Walker defeated El Critico in 7:57 by pinfall with a Pants Pull Sunset Flip. (E+)
Well Critico sucks. Good win for our young up-and-comer though as Walker moves into the Sweet 16.

KONY QUALIFIER: Tennessee William defeated The Masked Mauler in 8:15 by pinfall with a Devil's Crossroad. (D-)
Aaaaand another disappointing match. Hardly surprising considering Mauler’s advanced age and skill set at this stage. Thank God for his mentorship of Logan otherwise he’d be gone just like his former tag partner was.

KONY QUALIFIER: Animal Harker defeated Brutus Milano in 8:14 by pinfall by using underhanded tactics. (D-)
Despite being around the same quality as the last match, the expectations were a little lower and they just about reached them. No return Final 8 performance for Brutus this year.

ANGLE: Ernest Youngman is out with The Hangman. He’s tried fighting Henry like a man, but the ‘Hero of the People’ insists on cheating. So he’ll do it the hardway and win the King of New York tournament and beat him in the main event of the King of New York. (C+)

KONY QUALIFIER: Ernest Youngman defeated Bradley Blaze in 13:19 by pinfall with The Hit. (C)
Good match from Blaze here as I can totally see why he’s the man in MAW. Might be worth a look for a long-term contract in fact. Not yet obviously because we’re so poor.

KONY QUALIFIER: Joffy Pinkerton defeated Jake Idol in 7:53 by pinfall with a Death Spiral. (D)
The GSW champion is decent enough and the COTT World Heavyweight title holder (still can’t quite believe that) delivers decently. Still more training required in my eyes, although apparently Sam Keith is ok with him.

KONY QUALIFIER: William Jetterson defeated El Pavo Unreal in 7:46 by submission with a Viper Vice. (E+)
Because we couldn’t get El Pavo Real, we created our own version (Mauler under a different mask). It’s a little underhanded, but the COTT shouldn’t limit our loans. Cobra moves on.

KONY QUALIFIER: Fro Sure defeated Nicky Lopezio in 10:28 by pinfall by using underhanded tactics. (D+)
Another replacement here, with Steve Flash donning a mask and fake long hair. Completely different body shape to Nicolas Lopez of course. I wonder how the other promotions would react.

ANGLE: Ross Henry makes an elaborate entrance. (B)

GANG WARS MATCH: Bulldozer Brandon Smith, Logan Wolfsbaine and Ross Henry drew with Aldous Blackfriar, Harvey Robbinfield and Scythe in 13:29 when the referee lost control and stopped the match. (C)
A nice big New York City brawl to end the show. No one loses momentum and the match ruled, which is nice.

OVERALL: D

Another poor show in a string of them. Moving the production costs down was hurting us, BUT we were sort of making money. Although I’d be amazed if we did this month. We had a chat with The Masked Mauler who was unhappy with his recent booking. Apparently his momentum is in the toilet. Which it is. We weren’t about push the old lunatic, so instead we inducted him and Rick Sanders (Old School Principals) into the NYCW Hall of Fame.

Without further ado, let’s roll straight on to the sweet 16 and setup the final card for NYCW King of New York.

NYCW Stomping in the City
Monday, Week 4, August, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York City, New York
Attendance: 2,000 (SOLD OUT!)

KONY SWEET 16: Ralph Liotta defeated Robin DaLay in 8:29 by pinfall with a Swinging Neckbreaker. (E+)
Another big win from the youngster as he continues to make a name for himself at the bottom of the card. Decent performance considering the lack of star power.

KONY SWEET 16: Animal Harker defeated Joffy Pinkerton in 9:54 by pinfall, illegally using the ropes for leverage. (D-)
Former friends collide once again. And once again it’s the crazy brawler Animal who gets the win.

KONY SWEET 16: Ernest Youngman defeated Garry Walker in 8:18 by pinfall with The Hit. (C-)
Good match experience for Garry here again as he takes on one of the hottest characters in the company. It’s a close match, but the main man Ernest gets the win.

ANGLE: Logan Wolfsbaine cuts a promo hyping up his upcoming match with William Jetterson. (B-)

KONY SWEET 16: Logan Wolfsbaine defeated William Jetterson in 12:28 by submission with a Boston Crab. (C)
Stop it Logan, you saucy devil. Stealing the show is what he does. This week it’s against Jetterson, who ends up looking like a million dollars in defeat.

KONY SWEET 16: Fro Sure defeated Kip Keenan in 7:47 by pinfall with a Sure Thing. (D-)
Disappointing match as it goes, but Fro Sure is another name officially booked into the Final 8. There’s lots of juicy talent lining up and two spots left to fill.

KONY SWEET 16: Steve Flash defeated Aldous Blackfriar in 10:28 by pinfall with a Flash Bang. (D+)
Big win for one half of The Grand Slam, which puts him onto the main card against none other than his protégé Ralph Liotta.

ANGLE: Bulldozer Brandon Smith cuts a promo hyping up his upcoming match with Harvey Robbinfield. (B-)

KONY SWEET 16: Bulldozer Brandon Smith defeated Harvey Robbinfield in 8:28 by pinfall with a handful of tights. (C-)
In an unexpected boon, these two have great chemistry. Good match, with the wily veteran getting the duke by cheating. The Omega Man was furious after the match, but with this match we have our Final 8.

ANGLE: Ross Henry makes an elaborate entrance. (B)

NYCW EMPIRE TITLE MATCH: Ross Henry (c) defeated Tennessee William in 10:18 by pinfall, illegally using the ropes for leverage. (C)
Great showing by Tennessee in his first main event matchup for the title. Henry continues his singles streak heading towards Empire City Showdown II.

OVERALL: D+

And with that performance we come 1st in all battles except New England. Due to all the loan talent, we made a loss of $8,513, which was actually ok. We’d make it back as the year closed. Probably.

In the biggest signing news on the independents, GSW signed Rogue to his first contract in six months. He’s a big-time player and star and could well serve them like Jay Chord served us.

With a hectic August drawing to a close, the card for King of New York was set:

2nd Annual King of New York
10-Man Battle Royal: Bret Heartbreak, Brutus Milano, Joffy Pinkerton, Quintin Parent, Robin DaLay, Scythe, The Hangman, The Masked Mauler, Jake Idol and Johnny Needham
Tag Team Match: The Prophecy vs. Kip Keenan and Garry Walker
KONY 8: Ernest Youngman vs. Bulldozer Brandon Smith
KONY 8: Steve Flash vs. Ralph Liotta
KONY 8: Logan Wolfsbaine vs. Fro Sure
KONY 8: Animal Harker vs. Tennessee William
NYCW Empire Title: Ross Henry vs. Harvey Robbinfield

Next time on Welcome to New York… A Crown, for a King…

Welcome to New York… Where we crown a King…

Before the big show, Quentin Parent was in fine form telling road stories, although quite how many he can have at his age is beyond me. The Masked Mauler meanwhile had everyone in hysterics with impressions of the other boys.

The 2nd King of New York Tournament
Saturday, Week 2, September, 2017
Pennsylvania Park, Brooklyn, New York City, New York,
Attendance: 2,000 (SOLD OUT!)

10-MAN BATTLE ROYAL: Scythe won a battle royal in 11:32. The other members of the 'final four' were The Hangman, Jake Idol and Joffy Pinkerton, with The Hangman being the final elimination. The Hangman got the most eliminations over the course of the match. (D)
The magnificent monster Scythe bested all comers and eliminated the unstoppable Hangman to win this coveted (seriously does anyone care) battle royal. I find it amusing that I find myself with two unstoppable monster characters at the same time. One face, one heel. I smell an extended feud. One which no one asked for.

KONY FINAL 8: Tennessee William defeated Animal Harker in 12:07 by pinfall by using underhanded tactics. (D)
These two just can’t stay away from each other it seems. The extended breakup of the Southern Stars leaks into the tournament again. This time it’s William using his guitar to score the win and get to the semi finals.

KONY FINAL 8: Ralph Liotta defeated Steve Flash in 4:55 by flash pinfall. (D)
In a short but effective match, it’s mentor vs protégé and despite looking unstoppable and dominant, it’s actually the ultimate underdog Ralph Liotta who gets the win.

KONY FINAL 8: Logan Wolfsbaine defeated Fro Sure in 7:52 by pinfall with a Belly-to-Belly suplex. (C-)
Solid matchup between two rising stars of NYCW. Logan continues his incredible two-year run and is set to face his long-time rival Tennessee William in the semis.

ANGLE: Ernest Youngman is out with The Hangman. Tonight he’s going to book his place in history by marching all the way to the finals, getting the crown and then going on to Empire City Showdown to ascend to Empire Champion once and for all. Nothing and no one is going to stop the Saint of the Second City. (B-)

KONY FINAL 8: Ernest Youngman defeated Bulldozer Brandon Smith in 9:51 by pinfall with The Hit. (C+)
Fantastic match between two of our top guys. Ernest remains the man in New York, despite never having held the top prize. Bulldozer puts on a Hell of a show and even learns a new power move to help with his ring psychology. I’d call this a win across the board.

TAG TEAM MATCH: The Prophecy defeated Garry Walker and Kip Keenan in 5:42 when Aldous Blackfriar defeated Kip Keenan by submission with a Gloomweaver Clutch. (D-)
Well hello zero chemistry note, haven’t seen you in a while. The Prophecy with precious little to do, keep their momentum going, while the youngsters get some exposure. One day I will really have to find something for Garry and Kip to do.

KONY FINAL 4: Logan Wolfsbaine defeated Tennessee William in 8:15 by submission with a Boston Crab. (C-)
Another good match from Tennessee here, although having Logan to work with is never a bad thing. Despite, arguably the easiest run to the semis, it’s the Tri-State Champion who progresses to the finals. Can he top his incredible year by winning it all?

ANGLE: Logan Wolfsbaine cuts a promo hyping up his finals match. He doesn’t care who it’s against, it’s time for him to fulfil his destiny and become a ‘True’ Grand Slam winner. I’m sure Flash and Bulldozer take issue with that statement, but he’s not wrong. (C+)

KONY FINAL 4: Ernest Youngman defeated Ralph Liotta in 8:16 by pinfall with The Hit, following a The Hangman run in. (C-)
The Ultimate Underdog falls short at the final hurdle, but it took interference from the behemoth to take him down. The crowd lapped up the match and it could well be a star-making performance. But how could he capitalise? Ernest takes a step closer to the promised land and a matchup with Logan, which technically would mark their third encounter over the years. Ernest won the first, Logan won the second and the rubber would be for the King of New York.

ANGLE: Ross Henry makes an elaborate entrance. (B)

NYCW EMPIRE TITLE MATCH: Ross Henry (c) defeated Harvey Robbinfield in 9:31 by pinfall, illegally using the ropes for leverage. (C-)
Ross Henry shows he’s not above some underhanded tactics to keep the title he’s held for almost a year. Harvey meanwhile continues Alpha and Omega’s streak of always fighting for titles, but never winning them.

ANGLE: Ernest Youngman cuts a promo hyping up his upcoming match with Logan Wolfsbaine. It’s time young Wolfsbaine. Let’s see what you’ve got. (C+)

KONY FINAL: For nearly half an hour, these two workhorses of NYCW do battle. Both men were tired entering the match, but the pace was fast and frantic throughout. A series of near-falls ensured towards the end and there was even interference from The Hangman, until Animal Harker ran in to fight him away. But with everything on the line, it was, eventually Ernest Youngman who prevailed, having defeated Logan Wolfsbaine in 28:24 by pinfall with The Hit. Ernest Youngman wins the NYCW King of New York title. (C+)
MONSTER main event to top off one of our strongest cards in months. Ernest and Logan never, ever disappoint and once again they did what was necessary. It was truly a spectacle, but Ernest’s momentum was too high for him not to book his place in the main event of Empire City Showdown II.

OVERALL: D+

That’s how we do that. Even with our production costs in the toilet, we still deliver. Elsewhere George Wolfe won the MAW Title from Bradley Blaze and the contract expiry of Remo Richardson caused a bidding war.

Due to the strength of The King of New York, we won all battles and even turned a small profit of $5,911. With that in mind, it sort of made sense in the following month to increase our shows to weekly. So we’d have: Welcome to New York, Old School Wrestling, Stomping in the City AND the return of Traditional Tour. See if we could still turn a profit, even with a show running outside of the Tri-State area.

We were now building to the biggest show of the year in December and we had a main event. Now it was time to pad out the undercard and see where we were at.

Next time on Welcome to New York… Hopefully we make more money…

OOC Results:
MisterRomanini - 9/10
Theheel - 7/10
a0161613 - 6/7
