Post Show Report
Oof. That was a bit of a poor follow-up to the PPV. Not your fault though.
  • Incidents of note
Wrestler's Court: Seems like Squeeky was either wishing the drinks were still on Remo or living the gimmick, because word got back to the Enforcer that he skipped out on paying his share of the bar bill after a show recently. The Enforcer decided Squeeky would make up for it by buying drinks for everyone tonight and he was okay with that.

  • The Positives
I think we've found Valiant's wheel-house. He and Bekowski were great together in their little brawl. Seems like pairing him up with big guys might be the way to go.

The Awesomeness and Laramee all came off well in their segment on the show, Huey in particular. Maybe Sexy's onto something with him deserving more mic time.


  • The Negatives
So, this is what really hurt the show. The main event looked good on paper so I can't fault you for that. You know how the saying goes "opposites attract" though? Well let's just say Morgan and Gilmore aren't so much chalk and cheese as chalk and chalk and they were awful as a team, which hurt the main event and hurt the momentum the Gilmore/Rogue/Remo storyline had going for it, which is one too many storylines that failed to deliver this week.

And to top things off, although Rogue deserves some credit for really carrying that main event, he wasn't so hot on that opening promo.


  • Gimmick Changes
Justin Sensitive's new Skin Care Obsessive deal seemed to get a pretty decent response. It's certainly different.

  • Talent Concerns
In addition to Spade and Emmy requesting call-ups again, Ekuma has made it clear he wants to be on the main roster as well. The last Rhode Island show was without colour commentary, as Smooth C no showed. He's not under contract to us so nothing we can really do except let Cattley and Carlisle deal with him.
------

So, getting the storyline penalty twice in the first month isn't ideal. Hopefully that doesn't put me too close to annoying the TV network.

"Enforcer" Phil Roberts Incident Backstage

Quote:
FROM: "Enforcer" Phil Roberts (enforcerrobswf@swf.com)
TO: The Grand Avatar (mysteriousavatar1@mailwhizz.com)

Evening boss. I know that normally I report to you through Jerry, however unfortunately I'm going to have to go over his head on this one.

Seems like Mr. Eisen and his boys were having some fun at the expense of Joe Sexy earlier today. Joe seemed to be under the impression that he was being phased out onto commentary. Apparently one of Jerry or Eric got wind of the fact Joe's doing colour for the six man tag tonight and thought it'd be funny to make Joe think they were putting him on the booth full time. One of the boys apparently overheard Jerry asking Joe if he was looking forward to, quote, "the next phase of his career" earlier today and Joe was told by someone on staff that he wouldn't be changing with the boys tonight. Anyway, when they revealed it was a work, needless to say Joe didn't take it too well, I guess he didn't appreciate the subtext that he's on his last run. He got hot and a couple of the guys apparently had to talk him out of going for Eric.

I'm happy to handle this for you, I just need to know what tact you want to take. My suggestion would be to give them a slap on the wrist. I'm sure they thought it was funny, certainly funnier than Joe did. Probably best to tread lightly being the new guy on staff. Ordinarily I'd say it was something of nothing, the only worry I'd have is that it's the second time in a month Joe and Eric have clashed so I wouldn't be surprised if Eric came up with this.

Lemme know what you think and I'll have a word with one of the three depending on what you decide to do.

(DARK MATCH: Bear Bekowski w/Kristen Pearce defeated Quentin Queen in 4:50 by pinfall. (D-))



SWF SUPREME TV - JAN WEEK 4
(Isaak Road Arena, Mid Atlantic; 14,243 in attendance)
10.30 Rating - 7,728,200 Viewers

A video package opened up this week's show, hyping up tonight's main event to decide the number one contender's to Remo's World Title at Nothing To Lose, Jack Bruce taking on Brandon James, here, tonight. (B-)

And just to prove he was back this week, Jack Bruce would immediately make his way out to the ring after the package had ended. Not showing too much in the way of the effects of When Hell Freezes Over and the attack by The Crippler, Bruce got the crowd amped up from the get-go. He claimed that the Jack Is Back Tour got off to a great start a couple of weeks ago when he rocked the house and kicked The Crippler's butt, but there was a slight snag when The Crippler beat him down after the match. Bruce said he appreciated SWF management giving him another week to get ready for tonight's main event with Brandon James, but he didn't need it and he was raring to go. Jack took some time to address Brandon's change in management, saying that he didn't have a lot of time for Emma Chase, but he'd also dealt with more than enough "go-go dancers" in his time to know that they were trouble. Bruce then moved on to The Crippler and made light of what happened at When Hell Freezes Over by saying he understood why Crippler was feeling a little "crabby" after their match. Emma bitterly pointed out that there's a difference between a lobster and a crab, but judging by the crowds chants of "crabby", they weren't interested. Bruce then said "speaking of crabs, Brandon, don't say I didn't warn you" to get another pop (and another disapproving reaction from Emma), before ending by telling The Crippler that he wasn't hard to find, but he was hard to beat and that the Jack Is Back Tour would be rolling on in Maryland tonight. (B)


Like last week, another advert for "Sensitivity" aired, this time with Justin Sensitive in a laboratory, which at least made the lab coat a little more practical but still did nothing to explain the sunglasses. Sensitive explained that the people behind him were the finest skin experts known to man and they were hard at work perfecting the formula to true Sensitive skin. All of them were suspiciously good looking and when one came up to hand Justin a sample, her reading of "take a look at what we've been working on" was particularly wooden and sounded quite rehearsed. Sensitive happily rubbed some of the cream on his face and claimed that he felt softer already before handing it back to the lab worker/actress. He then claimed that with the formula almost complete, Sensitive skin was a closer reality than ever and urged us all to keep watching. (D+)

Quote:
Marshall Dillon vs. Everest
Dillon might not give up size to many opponents, but he dealt with this different test pretty well. Everest was able to corner the cowboy a few times and that's where his size really told. When Dillon was able to make some space though, he was simply too quick for Everest to deal with and the Crackdown saw Dillon pick up an impressive victory.

Winner: Marshall Dillon, via pinfall, in 4:50
(C-)
Ana Garcia was standing by with Valiant backstage looking to get his thoughts on his match with Brandon James at When Hell Freezes Over. Valiant was magnanimous, admitting that James got the better of him, but that just meant they were one and one and next time he was confident he'd settle the score. Talk turned to the North American #1 Contenders Battle Royal at Nothing To Lose with Valiant saying he was looking to join the exclusive list of people who'd held the belt three times. Valiant expressed respect for Joey Morgan, but at Nothing To Lose he had his sights set on gold, adding that maybe he'd see Brandon James along the way. (B-)

Quote:
Tag Team #1 Contenders Match
The Amazing Bumfholes vs. The Pain Alliance

The SWF's two longest tenured tag teams had something to prove in this one with a shot at The Awesomeness at Nothing To Lose in the balance. The Bumfholes had used their automatic rematch and The Pain Alliance had been told they needed to do something to earn a shot a few weeks ago, so the stakes were particularly high here. The match went about as you'd expect, with The Pain Alliance's power and brute force going up against the Bumfholes's speed and agility. Neither team could get a clear advantage over the other, with Fry calling it a pick 'em. What wasn't expected was the result though. With the match coming down to a close run finish, The Awesomeness would hit the ring with both Big Smack and Zimmy struggling to their feet after a double knockdown. Huey and Jefferson, with tag belts in hand, would count each other down from three, before connecting with belt shots to both men at the same time.

Official Decision: No Contest, in 8:21
(C)

The bell would sound and no official announcement would be made, but the result was pretty clear. The Awesomeness scurried back out of the ring and celebrated, with neither team having won the right to face them. (C)

Prior to the next match, Duane and Emma went over Hollywood Bret Starr's comments last week and announced that he had been signed to face Mikey Lau at Nothing To Lose for a chance to back up his claims of a "fluke rollup". (C-)

Quote:
Hollywood Bret Starr vs. Brett Biggins
Tonight Starr had a different task to focus on as he faced former tag team champion Brett Biggins, another man who was involved in the Supreme Sixway at When Hell Freezes Over. Starr wrestled like a man with a point to prove and although Biggins put up a fight near the end, a knee to the midsection cut him off and the Hollywood Hammer earned Starr a fairly comprehensive victory.

Winner: Hollywood Bret Starr, via pinfall, in 6:31
(C+)

Starr celebrated afterwards to disapproving boos from the crowd, who are chastised by Emma for failing to show the proper respect for such a great performance. (C-)
Rogue ventured to the ring after commercial, holding in his hand a noticably bent steel chair. Rogue introduced footage of last week when he laid out both Joey Morgan and Angry Gilmore with the very same chair, clearly pleased with his work. Encouraging the crowd to give a hand to the chair, which they resoundingly didn't, Rogue examined the chair carefully and estimated that it probably had a good five or six more swings in it left so he'd be keeping hold of it for a while. As Rogue continued on describing what happened last week, Angry Gilmore would interrupt. Gilmore filled in the blanks of what Rogue's footage didn't show- him picking up another win over Joe Sexy and Rogue taking another loss. Gilmore said the chair wouldn't help Rogue at Nothing To Lose, which Rogue said we'd see about, with Gilmore approaching the ring the whole time. Reaching the bottom of the ramp, he then told Rogue they didn't have to wait until then and Rogue responded that if Gilmore wanted to use up another couple of chairshots then to go right ahead. Gilmore took up the offer and slid into the ring, but ducked Rogue's wild swing and unloaded with right hands. Rogue was forced to drop the chair, with Gilmore picking it up and taking a wild swing of his own. Rogue managed to duck too though and quickly scurried out of the ring, clearly relieved, as Gilmore stood mid ring with the chair and dared him to come back and fight. (B-)

Quote:
American Machine w/BJ O'Neill vs. John Greed
American Machine had impressed lately, but as Emma made sure to point out, impressive or not he was coming off the back of three losses. Greed would prove another tricky test and this was an evenly fought contest. Machine was clearly bouyed by those recent performances against top level competition though and powered back into the match. Once Machine got going Greed couldn't seem to stop him and Fry claimed that he was looking maybe better than ever. Greed was eventually hit with the Old Glory and American Machine was back to winning ways, much to BJ O'Neill's delight.

Winner: American Machine, via pinfall, in 7:55
(C+)
In the catering area we found Jessie, stood at a coffee machine waiting for her drinks. The drink finished pouring and Jessie was just about to leave, when a voice from off screen asked "is coffee really a good idea?"



Before Jessie had a chance to answer, Kristen said she didn't know what'd gotten into 'Tom' today, but caffeine probably wasn't going to do much for his temper. Not wanting a lecture on the effects of caffeine, Jessie would cut to the chase and ask Kristen what she wanted, with Kristen replying that if she knew Jessie was in a mood as well she wouldn't have bothered. Sighing, Jessie would set down the drinks to hear Kristen out, with Kristen asking if she'd thought any more about her co-managers proposal. Jessie's attempts to dodge the issue by explaining how she needed to learn what to do first didn't really work, with Kristen asking how hard it could be ("smile and clap occasionally, I think I can manage that"), so Jessie said she'd think about it, if only to get her coffees and leave before they got cold. Kristen seemed content though and practised cheering for 'Tom' as if to prove her point. (D+)


Joe Sexy would head to the ring before the next match-up to join the commentary team. (B-)

Quote:
Paul Huntingdon, Squeeky McClean and Frederique Antonio Garcia vs. Valiant, Jungle Lord and Robbie Retro
Like Sexy, all six of these men were former North American Champions and thus heading for the #1 Contenders Battle Royal at Nothing To Lose. That was the main topic of conversation on commentary, behind Sexy questioning Jungle Lord's intelligence any time he was in the ring. The match itself saw the heel team isolate Robbie Retro, not enjoying their early confrontations with Jungle Lord and not wanting any of Valiant. Retro might have been singled out as the weak link, but he wasn't going down easy and after capitalising on Huntingdon running into Squeeky on the apron, the tag was made to Valiant. From there the momentum swung the faces way and it was up to Squeeky, Garcia and Huntingdon to keep up. While Jungle Lord took care of Squeeky and Garcia on the floor, Huntingdon seemingly stalled Valiant in the ring and called for High Society. When he went to hit it though, Valiant had the counter, before instead hitting Huntingdon with the V-Split to pick up the win for his team.

Winners: Valiant, Jungle Lord and Retro, via pinfall, in 11:21
(B-)

As Valiant, Jungle Lord and Retro celebrate, Sexy has already ditched commentary, clearly annoyed at the outcome. The three good guys all seem happy for each other for the time being, but as is pointed out on commentary, at Nothing To Lose it'll be every man for himself for a shot at the North American Championship. (C+)
An informal Eisen meeting was captured taking place backstage, as Jerry spoke with Eric. Pointing out that Eric was voluntarily choosing not to be in the North American #1 Contenders Battle Royal, he wanted to know what Eric's deal was. Issuing an open challenge was one thing, but passing up a chance to win championship gold, that wasn't like Eric at all. Eric scoffed at Jerry, reminding him that he'd been there and done that. And besides, it wasn't really a shot at a title, it was a chance to get a shot, he was above that. Jerry took that to mean Eric didn't want to be in a battle royal fighting nine other people, but Eric just ignored him and wanted to talk about something more important, The Eric Eisen Open Invitational. Instead of scrapping around with "the rest of the talent" just for an opportunity, he was making opportunities. And next week he was going to offer another opportunity to one lucky person. Jerry still seemed dubious, but Eric called this big business and left, remarking "can you believe we actually pay you to ask people these kind of questions?" on his way out. (C+)


The main event was up next, but first Ana Garcia looked to get Remo's thoughts on who he might be facing at Nothing To Lose. The World Champion didn't even get a chance to answer before Krissy Angelle and Brandon James walked into shot, on their way to the ring. Krissy answered Ana's question for her and said Bruce didn't stand a chance tonight, just like Remo won't stand a chance at Nothing To Lose. James spent the entire time staring directly at Remo, who clearly didn't appreciate being interrupted and stepped past Ana. Momentarily it was a tense situation, as both Remo and James looked ready to fight. Remo glanced at Krissy though and walked off in the other direction, choosing not to attack James. (C+)

Quote:

World Championship #1 Contender's Match
Jack Bruce vs. Brandon James w/Krissy Angelle

The stakes were high and the atmosphere was suitably rocking, in a memorable main event. The week off had clearly revitalised Jack as he came out all guns blazing, with the match quickly spilling to the floor and going all around ringside in the early stages. The pace didn't let up for a good six or seven minutes, even when things got back in the ring. Only when James caught Bruce with a big clothesline would things slow down a little. And they'd slow down with James choosing to target the injured neck. Brandon's tactics were a little different from The Crippler's two weeks ago, a lot more clubbing than finesse, but the result was the same, Jack's neck was being tested. Jack would fight out of a painful looking chinlock and eventually mount a comeback, proving that the neck wasn't quite stopping him yet. And once it was clear Jack wouldn't be kept down by his injury, the match became about who could deliver the final big blow to put the other down.

James's high impact power moves weren't quite enough, but Jack wasn't able to put Big Money away either. The Big Money Move was avoided twice, but Jack barely had a chance to even attempt the New York Minute. The closest Jack would come to victory would be a rare move off the top, as he blocked a superplex and knocked Brandon to the mat for a flying elbow and a near fall. Unfortunately, it looked as though the match would be decided by outside means, as after a collision of heads in the corner, The Crippler would make his way down towards the ring. Brandon would be up first though and while he might not have needed Crippler's help, he certainly wasn't helped when Valiant would run out and grab The Crippler, spinning him around and unloading with right hands. Valiant and Crippler would brawl towards the back, ensuring neither would be a direct factor. But Brandon James was clearly distracted by this and it allowed Bruce to wriggle free from James's shoulders, ducking a wild clothesline and catching James with the New York Minute to pick up the big win.

Winner: Jack Bruce, via pinfall, in 22:13
(B+)

Bruce's hand is raised and Fry confirms that it'll be Jack Bruce taking on Remo at Nothing To Lose for the SWF World Title (B), with Jack celebrating his victory to close out the show. (B)
OVERALL- B (show increased pop in 3 regions)

Post Show Report
Good job on the show tonight. That main event really delivered, I'd like to see something on that other show running tonight down south top that. Oh and by the way, thanks for not over-reacting earlier.

  • The Positives
Did you hear that "crabby" chant Jack got going? The guy can work that crowd like no other. We're already talking about getting a new shirt made for his "not hard to find but hard to beat" line, we'll probably run that one by marketing tomorrow and see about copyrighting it.

I think me and Eric did a good job in our segment. I guess I would say that but letting us shoot the breeze on these segments works for me and letting Eric cut loose definitely works well for him.


  • The Negatives
I'm just saying, but... Sexy did a pretty meh job on commentary tonight.

  • Gimmick Changes
Bekowski was debuting his new Mountain Man character in the dark match and it seemed to go pretty well. He's ready to go on TV with it and it should be a nice little booster for his prospects now that he's got a more colourful gimmick to work with.

  • Talent Concerns
Latest from Rhode Island is that Lassana Makutsi wants up along with Spade and Emmy. If you're not already mulling over ideas for the latter two, you might want to start because every week you leave them down there they might start to get a little more frustrated.

The Wrestling Spectator
January 2016 - Edition #4

USPW MAKE MORE MOVES, DEBUT NEW TELEVISION SHOW
It's been another busy couple of weeks for USPW, as they continue to try and stake their claim as the #1 wrestling company in North America.

The week started with yet more talent acquisitions to bolster their roster. Having already signed the former Captain Atomic, as well as Masked Cougar, both Nelson Callum and Roger Cage have officially joined the company. Cage was allowed to finish up his dates for NYCW, dropping the company's Empire Title to Rick Sanders. A second signing from CZCW to go with Masked Cougar is Donnie J, who'll debut on TV soon, possibly this week. And rounding out the hirings is Greg Black, the former Groucho Bling, who had been working for PSW as one half of the Supreme Dream Team with Grandmaster Phunk and is yet another former SWF competitor now signed.

The rash of signings may have something to do with the surprise reveal of new programming that was made last week. On Friday, Reverie and USPW put out press releases announcing a new show, named "USPW RUMBLE", which will be airing every week on Saturday evenings. The show was marketed as "added content" and will be used primarily to give more exposure to the non-main event talent on the roster. The show premiered the following night, which could be seen as a risky move, but seemingly generated some excitement due to the quick turnaround from reveal to airing. The opening show did a 0.93 rating with 702,240 viewers, with Danny Rushmore defeating T-Rex in the main event. Running a show on the weekend, featuring primarily undercard talent, would be a tough sell for most companies. However the Reverie deal makes USPW unique and the viability of the show isn't necessarily a pressing issue, as it's more content for a network that owns the content to begin with.

NOTBPW Star Brooke Tyler Is Posing Nude For Magazine Feature



You may or may not be familiar with North Of The Border Pro Wrestling's Women's Champion Brooke Tyler. But wrestling fans in Canada are about to see a lot more of her.

Tyler will be featuring in the latest edition of Canadian sports and fitness magazine "Powerplay", with a feature on her career as a pro wrestler. It's the photoshoot that will get people's attention however, as Tyler is taking the bold step of posing naked for it.

The 22 year old daughter of former DAVE star Eric Tyler has earned rave reviews for her work in the Canadian promotion in the ring. She's not just another wannabe model; she can kick ass as well.

The feature could prove to be a huge image boost for the company and for Tyler itself, with the magazine being a pretty big deal in Canada. It should certainly get people talking and ensure Tyler's stock in the Canadian promotion only continues to rise.

SWF SUPREME TV - FEB WEEK 1
(Mayor Street Arena, New England; 13,872 in attendance)
10.44 Rating - 7,834,560 viewers

A recap of last week's main event opened this week's show, Valiant's prevention of The Crippler interfering perhaps key in Jack Bruce overcoming Brandon James. Tonight as a result, Valiant and The Crippler would go one on one in the main event. (B-)

And one person who'd be an interested spectator would be the new number one contender, Jack Bruce, who is shown arriving at the building. (B-)

Quote:
Monty Trescarde vs. Brett Biggins
Last time we saw Monty, he was running away from fighting Valiant. This match was apparently more his speed and he stuck around for the duration. Biggins gave him some problems in his own right, but Monty showed a few more of his admirable qualities as he took what the former tag champion had to offer and still came out on top with the Cash Bonus.

Winner: Monty Trescarde, via pinfall, in 6:02
(C-)
Backstage Ana Garcia was with Angry Gilmore. Ana brought up what happened last week, with Gilmore saying he didn't need chairs to deal with anyone but he was sure connecting with Rogue would have felt quite good anyway. When asked if he was concerned about being on the recieving end at Nothing To Lose Gilmore pointed out that Rogue would have to beat him in the ring man to man and that was something he'd yet to manage. Gilmore added that he knew Rogue had an important match tonight and suggested he'd be watching closely. (C+)


It was Open Invitational time again, as Eric Eisen came out to regale the crowd about how successful his open challenge had been, not least of all for him. In fact, it couldn't be going more perfectly. Eric said that shouldn't put off whoever was behind the curtain waiting to come out because everybody gets lucky some day and maybe tonight is their lucky night. Being an Eisen, he didn't need luck, but his opponent almost certainly would, so he wished him the best of it. (B)

Quote:
Eric Eisen Open Invitational Match
Eric Eisen vs. Jason O'Conner

Eric's opponent for the night didn't appear too nervous, but nor did he ever really appear like he'd get the win. He would give Eric a couple of tricky moments, including a near fall off a northern lights suplex, but for the most-part this was a showcase for Eisen and he secured another open invitational victory with The Supremacy.

Winner: Eric Eisen, via pinfall, in 4:58
(C+)

Routine as the victory might have been, Eric was going to celebrate it all the same, enthusiastically complimented all the while by Emma all the while. (C+)
The Tag Team Champions were backstage taking part in a photo shoot with their title belts. And a wind machine. Of course. A few more shots were taken before Jerry Eisen walked into their picture, which they didn't appreciate, literally trying to shoo him away. Undettered by their shooing, Jerry told them he hoped they were having a good time and congratulated them on their clever little stunt last week. The Awesomeness both seem pleased about it as well, until Jerry told them that since neither The Amazing Bumfholes nor The Pain Alliance got a chance to win the number one contenders match, rather than them both missing out, they'd both be getting another shot, in a triple threat match at Nothing To Lose. Huey and Jefferson were predictably outraged, as Jerry suggested they make sure the camera gets their good side on the next few pictures, because they might not be doing many more photo shoots as champions after the PPV. (C-)

Quote:
Mikey Lau and Jimmy Hernandez vs. Hollywood Bret Starr and John Greed
These four were all out to impress in this one, a frenetic fast paced tag team match. All four men involved wanted their time to shine and as a result, the idea of teaming together kind of went out the window. Instead, the strategy was simply to take it right to whoever else happened to be in the ring at that particular time. Individually, all four had their moments and the match could really have gone either way. It'd be a lack of teamwork which proved the key though, as Starr would ultimately decide he'd had enough of the match after being on the recieving end of one too many big moves, walking out and leaving his partner high and dry. That allowed Lau and Hernandez to pick Greed off and Lau to get the pin with the Dragon Whip.

Winners: Lau and Hernandez, via pinfall, in 5:58
(C)
As Supreme TV went to commercials, the first one we saw was with a familiar face, with Justin Sensitive this time at a gym. Unlike the people working out behind him, Sensitive was in his lab coat and sunglasses, which certainly made him stand out. Sensitive explained that a gymnasium is a place that people go to get stronger and more healthy. But looking around the gym, what he saw didn't look too healthy to him. Bleamishes. Blotches. Sweat drenched skin. What's the point in working out and strengthening your muscles if the skin wrapped around them was disgusting to look at? That's why Sensitive claimed he was here to help. Instead of being concerned with muscularity, people should be focusing on their Sensitivity. And soon, he would be coming to the SWF to spread Sensitivity to the world. Soon, he claimed, Supreme TV would become Sensitive TV and encouraged everyone to keep watching. (D+)


Back in the arena, Ana Morgan was standing by at the interview position with Paul Huntingdon. Huntingdon bitterly admitted that he'd been having some poor luck lately in regards to recapturing his North American Championship, but he had an opportunity to change that at Nothing To Lose. All he had to do was win the battle royal and he had a guaranteed shot, right there and then at Joey Morgan. Huntingdon claimed that nobody in the battle royal was more determined than he was and that determination would bring the gold back to his rightful possession and away from the undeserving champion it currently resided with. (C+)

Quote:
Squeeky McClean vs. Robbie Retro
Two more men with their sights on the North American #1 Contenders Battle Royal looked to do their talking in the ring, as opposed to on the microphone. While neither would be considered among the favourites to win at Nothing To Lose, Squeeky had been racking up some wins in singles competition in recent weeks and Retro was on the winning side of the six man tag last week. Retro had also been the man to defeat Squeeky for the title back in 2014 and he gave McClean his fair share of problems again here. Squeeky is one of the most crafty competitors on the roster though and a timely dodge saw the disco dancer crash land into the ring ropes, with Squeeky quickly capitalising with the Stain Removal for the win.

Winner: Squeeky McClean, via pinfall, in 8:29
(C+)
A video aired hyping the SWF World Champion, Remo (B-), before we cut backstage to see the number one contender Jack Bruce heading to the ring. (B)

To a rousing reception, Jack made his way out for a promo. He was willing to admit he was a little sore after last week, but it still felt good to be standing in front of everyone as the number one contender one more time. Jack recounted the number one contender's match briefly but seemed more focused on what was coming up. At Nothing To Lose he had a chance to make history again and it just so happened that seven was his lucky number. Jack put Remo over as one of the toughest people he'd ever been in the ring with, but reminded Remo that he'd beaten him for the World Title once before and he could do it again. This ultimately brought Remo out to the ring and Emma wondered if Jack would be talking so boldly if it was to Remo's face. The answer turned out to be yes, Bruce not intimidated by Remo and saying if it was a fight Remo was after, he wasn't too sore to kick his ass right now. Remo said he wasn't there for a fight, he'd wait until Nothing To Lose to take care of Bruce and advised Bruce to concentrate on taking care of himself and his neck until then. Remo warned Bruce to forget about his other problems, worry about Remo and Jack assured him he was focused on one thing and one thing only, the belt Remo was holding. The two would end up squaring up to each other, Remo holding the belt in Bruce's face and both exhanging words off microphone, as Fry hyped that the match between these two would be something special. (B+)

Quote:
Rogue vs. Joey Morgan
The North American Title took a backseat here to what went down two weeks ago, with Morgan looking for revenge after taking a couple of chair shots from Rogue after their tag team match was over. And Morgan showed a little more of an edge as a result, forgoing his usual technical prowess to brawl with Rogue at the start. Rogue might have been caught off guard by this, but as Emma explained, a brawl suited him more and sure enough Rogue was able to gain the upper hand when things spilt outside thanks to the announce table and the barricade. Morgan had clearly learnt his lesson, switching to wrestling when things got back inside, keeping the match pretty even as his spells of stretching Rogue out alternated with Rogue regaining the advantage and pummeling the North American Champion. Morgan would eventually try to fight fire with fire again late on in the match and seemed to have Rogue on the ropes, earning a couple of near falls on the crafty Brit before Rogue decided he'd had enough. Sneaking outside, Rogue would grab a chair and hit Morgan full swing as he tried to exit the ring, causing the blatant disqualification.

Winner: Joey Morgan, via disqualification, in 13:58
(B)

As Morgan fell back into the ring, a big smile broke out on Rogue's face, clearly not concerned about the result at all. Rogue slid back in and scared off the referee, leaving him free to measure Morgan and deliver another hard shot with the chair across the back. Before Rogue could deliver a third though, Angry Gilmore hit the ring causing Rogue to bail, with the chair still in hand, just incase. Gilmore stayed in the ring to check on Morgan though, settling for glaring at the smirking Rogue as he made sure the North American Champion was okay. (C+)
Quote:
Jungle Lord vs. James Prudence w/Frederique Antonio Garcia
Given Jungle Lord's recent issues with the trio referred to by Emma Chase here as "The Fabulous Three", this was a chance to exercise some frustrations. Things wouldn't be quite so easy for the man from the jungles though with Frederique hanging around on the outside and after early dominance from Jungle Lord, Frederique's interference would swing the match in Prudence's favour for a while. Prudence was able to keep Jungle Lord subdued, but wasn't able to keep him down for long, Jungle Lord just too powerful for the Platinum Blonde. And Frederique could only look on in dismay from ringside as Jungle Lord put his partner away, picking up the victory with the Jungle Jack-Hammer.

Winner: Jungle Lord, via pinfall, in 7:21
(B-)

After the match was a different story, as Frederique jumped Jungle Lord from behind, free to get involved as he pleased now the bout was over. Freddy stirred Prudence back to his feet so the two of them could double team Jungle Lord, but when they whipped him to the ropes, Jungle Lord felled them both with a diving double clothesline. After bonking their heads together, Jungle Lord then clotheslined both out of the ring, leaving the Blondes to retreat to the back with their tails between their legs. (C)
Back from commercial, Joe Sexy was in the trainer's room, a mixture of concern but also frustration on his face as he watched both of The Platinum Blondes being checked out. Sexy didn't show his buddies a massive amount of sympathy, instead asking them what happened out there. Frederique came up with some excuses, but Sexy wasn't actually interested in an answer, telling them they all needed to get their act together because he was sick of dealing with that lunatic Jungle Lord. Prudence just looked at him unsympathetically, with an ice pack against his temple and Sexy relented a little, as he told them both to relax and that they'd figure this out next week. (C+)

Quote:

Valiant w/Hannah vs. The Crippler
The main event of the evening saw two more competitors in the North American #1 Contenders Battle Royal go at it, but after last week this one was also somewhat personal. Valiant had thwarted The Crippler's attempts to interfere in Jack Bruce's match with Brandon James and now they had a score to settle with each other as well their respective rivals in that bout. The Crippler certainly seemed surly about the whole situation, although surly is also his default state at this point. Crippler didn't let that affect his performance though and the story was simple- Valiant would look to utilise the power game, while Crippler's focus was slowly wearing down his larger opponent, targetting the back. The numerous backbreakers and submission holds took their tole as the match wore on, limiting Valiant when he tried to mount a comeback. Valiant was, well, valiant though, fighting through the pain to surprise Crippler with a press slam at one point and managing to catch Crippler with a regular powerslam at another. It seemed like Valiant might just pull out a hard fought win as he stunned The Crippler with a running high knee and signalled for the V-Split. Someone else would have other ideas though, as Brandon James would slide into the ring and hit Valiant right in the back for the DQ.

Winner: Valiant, via disqualification, in 14:59
(B)

The fans booed that and booed even more when The Crippler joined in on the attack on Valiant, putting the boots to him in the middle of the ring. The Crippler would end up stopping James and calling for the tombstone, which James was evidently happy to stand back and watch happen. Much to Hannah's relief though, before that could happen Jack Bruce would hit the ring, making the save. Bruce fought off both James and Crippler long enough to lure in James and backdrop him to the outside. Bruce then sidestepped an attack by The Crippler and clotheslined him outside as well, with both James and Crippler deciding to cut their losses and back away, while Jack checked on Valiant as the show went off the air.

Post Show Report
Nothing much to report this week, just an update on the couple of incidents that happened earlier.
  • Incidents of note
Everest took his warning for spreading rumours about Duane okay. Just between you and me, I'd kinda have liked to have seen how that fight turned out. I reckon Fry might have taken him.

As for Starr, he wasn't quite so understanding about the warning for the rib he pulled. Seems like he was offended that it was even an issue and complained about people not being able to take a joke even as he was walking off from the conversation, so I guess he's not so happy. He's a talented kid but we're gonna have to manage his ego, he's a little too in-tune with his gimmick if you get my drift.


  • The Positives
Frederique did a good job at ringside during the Jungle Lord/Prudence match. I can see why my Dad likes him, he's very entertaining.

Eric came out of tonight looking good, putting him in with a bit more of a veteran in Threepwood worked out well.


  • Talent Concerns
Spade, Emmy, Masked Patriot and Primus were inquiring with Cattley about their call-ups again during the week. I thought Rhode Island was supposed to be nice this time of year, I don't get why everybody's so keen to leave.

Two Future SWF Superstars Announced They're Dating...

Rhode Island Pro Wrestling's Emmy and Scythe are among those being tipped for the top in the company's developmental system. And what better way to pass the time in Rhode Island than to find true love?

A picture of the pair together was posted on Emmy's Immedigraph page (with the normally masked superstar's back to the camera), with the caption "Who is this handsome stranger <3 <3" last week and when questioned during an online AMA, Emmy confirmed that she and the man known to RIPW fans as Scythe were dating.

We shouldn't expect to see the rock chick and the angry giant paired together on screen any time soon, as Emmy is currently managing the promotion's champion Spencer Spade while Scythe is very much a loner character.

We may be seeing the pair on SWF television before too long though, even if their romance stays strictly off our screens.

(DARK MATCH: American Machine and Masked Patriot defeated The Good Ol' Boys in 6:11 when American Machine defeated Thimbleby Langton by pinfall with an Old Glory. (D+))



SWF SUPREME TV - FEB WEEK 2
(Illinois State Park, Great Lakes; 14,392 in attendance)
9.95 Rating - 7,446,820 viewers

The show opened with the announcement of tonight's main event- two days away from Nothing To Lose, champion and number one contender go head to head, but in tag team action, as Remo and Brandon James take on Jack Bruce and Valiant. (B)

Waiting in the ring, Eric Eisen welcomed us to the show officially and asked what better way to start the show than to give out the opportunity of a lifetime to one lucky competitor? Eric yet again bragged about the success of his Open Invitational, while the crowd tried their best to heckle him down. Eric ignored them though, too caught up in talking up his challenge. When he eventually got around to inviting out his challenger for the night though, Eric's mood would change somewhat, as the bigman Everest made his way out onto the stage. Looking on with some trepidation, Eric watched Everest meander his way down to the ring before stopping the bigman once he entered. Playing forgetful, Eric claimed that he just realised, he made a big oversight. He'd forgotten to mention that the Eric Eisen Open Invitational had a strictly enforced weight limit. Eyeing Everest up, Eric announced that the weight limit was 400 pounds and unfortunately, that meant he couldn't let Everest answer the challenge. The fans quickly realised what was up but Everest seemed to take Eric at his word and continued to hear him out, as Eric told the bigman that he's still all about opportunity, so he had a better idea that he'd like to discuss with him away from prying eyes. Everest, for whatever reason, went along with this and left with Eric to boos from the crowd. Duane questioned Everest's intelligence as they left, with Emma asking what Duane had against a nice guy like Everest and for some reason getting no reply. (C)

Quote:
Mikey Lau vs. Steven Parker
Two of the SWF's up and coming stars would go head to head in the opener ahead of Lau's match at the PPV with Hollywood Bret Starr. Lau was taking this match very seriously and rightly so, as Parker was able to do a good job of keeping up with him throughout the contest. Lau's kicks were his greatest weapon in this and Parker was doing his best to avoid them. That only worked for so long though, with Lau landing some good shots towards the end and finishing Parker off with the Dragon Whip.

Winner: Mikey Lau, via pinfall, in 5:40
(C)
Post match, Lau would show respect to his opponent with a handshake and Parker accepted. Watching from backstage was Hollywood Bret Starr, ready for an interview with Ana and clearly, he wasn't impressed. Starr said he wasn't interested in Lau's respect, he was interested in SWF management's respect. And the way to get that was by beating Lau on Thursday night and putting him in the dust on his way to championship gold. When Ana asked if Starr was concerned about Lau's innovative style, Starr said this was wrestling, not a 4th grade karate recital and it'd take more than a few kicks to beat a natural born wrestler like him. (C)

Quote:
James Prudence vs. Jimmy Hernandez
One half of the Platinum Blondes was free to concentrate on singles endeavours here tonight, against one of the SWF's hottest prospects. With no Jungle Lord to contend with, Prudence fared better here than he did last week. Hernandez proved to be no pushover though and the result was an entertaining contest. The key turning point in the match came with Hernandez looking like he was on the verge of an upset, right up until the point Prudence dived clear of his springboard crossbody and Hernandez crashed hard into the mat. Prudence capitalised quickly with the pin, to score the three count.

Winner: James Prudence, via pinfall, in 8:12
(B-)
Watching along backstage, Joe Sexy and Frederique Antonio Garcia both celebrated their teammate's win. Discussion quickly turned to their match tonight though, with Sexy wanting them to keep Prudence's momentum going. Sexy explained to Frederique that winning tonight was important, but what was even more important would be dealing with that "lice-picking lunatic" Jungle Lord. Sensing the angst in Sexy's voice, Frederique urged him to relax. Jungle Lord might have given himself and Prudence a bump on the noggin last week, but this week they'd take care of him and make sure he wasn't a factor in the battle royal. Sexy seemed pleased with the mere idea. (B-)

A video aired hyping the North American #1 Contenders Battle Royal at Nothing To Lose and the interactions over the recent weeks between those who'd be involved. (B-)


Backstage, Ana Garcia was standing by with the World Champion Remo for thoughts on having to defend his title on Thursday against the man who ended his first title reign, Jack Bruce. Remo's eyes narrowed at the question, simply stating that that was a long time ago. Remo claimed he was a stronger and smarter fighter than he was back then and this time, Bruce stood no chance. He added that tonight, Bruce would find that out first hand and when Jack looked into his eyes, he'd know what Remo is all about. The World Champion then left, having sounded pretty darn convincing in what he was saying. (B)

Quote:
Triple Threat Match
Jefferson Stardust w/Huey Cannonball vs. Randy Bumfhole w/Zimmy Bumfhole vs. Kurt Laramee w/Big Smack Scott

In a preview of the triple threat Tag Team Title match to come this Thursday, half of each team were kept strictly to the outside, while their partners aimed to pick up a momentum boosting victory. Huey, Scott and Zimmy spent most of the match mouthing off to each other, whilst in the ring the action swung back and forth between the three men actually involved. Randy would provide the highlight of the match with a big dive onto both of his opposition, but he didn't prove to be involved in the finish, as Laramee gave The Pain Alliance the win and pinned one half of the Tag Team Champions to do it, with the Switchblade Powerslam to Stardust getting him the pinfall victory.

Winner: Kurt Laramee, via pinfall, in 7:45
(B-)
In their dressing room, Angry Gilmore and Jessie were found, with Gilmore finishing lacing up his boots ahead of his upcoming match. Gilmore told Jessie he hoped she didn't mind him saying no to Kristen being at ringside tonight, but he didn't need any distractions right now. Jessie insisted she understood and seemed more apologetic than Gilmore was that it was even an issue. Gilmore sensed that his wife might be more against the idea than him and suggested that Jessie talk to Kristen, with Jessie saying that her sister was pretty insistent and that when she got an idea in her head, she stuck to it. Jessie said they could deal with that later though, for now they should focus on his match. (C-)

The camera cut straight to Rogue who was in a non-descript hallway with a big smile on his face. Apparently having seen or heard what we just saw, Rogue addressed Gilmore and suggested he take care of his family business, because he wouldn't want anything to distract him from their match in two days. Rogue talked about Nothing To Lose being the night he finally knocked Gilmore off and the night he started his journey to the World Title. He then sarcastically wished Gilmore good luck in his match tonight and said he might take a seat and watch it, pulling a slightly dented steel chair up into camera view and smiling widely again. (C+)

Quote:
Angry Gilmore w/Jessie vs. Monty Trescarde
Despite the situation surrounding his manager and the threat of Rogue lurking around the corner, Gilmore was able to keep things strictly business here tonight. Trescarde was able to do little more than briefly slow Gilmore down on the way to a fairly routine win with the Sky High Elbow.

Winner: Angry Gilmore, via pinfall, in 7:29
(B)

As Gilmore celebrated the win, Emma and Duane both noted that there was no sign of Rogue, with Emma summising that Rogue must be confident he had Gilmore's number this time. (B-)
Back at the interview position Ana Garcia spoke with Valiant ahead of the main event. Valiant said he couldn't wait to get his hands on Brandon James after last week and he couldn't think of a better partner to be teaming with than Jack Bruce. Getting to test himself against the World Champion was just a bonus and he'd be happy to let Jack prove his point, while he proved his against Big Money. (B-)


Duane Fry left the commentary position to conduct an interview in the ring with the North American Champion Joey Morgan about the North American #1 Contenders Battle Royal in two nights time. Morgan played his cards close to his chest when asked about who he thought would win and who he would most like to face, answering both questions by saying he was a fighting champion who'd face anyone. Paul Huntingdon would interrupt the interview and take issue with that claim, because he still hadn't gotten his rightful title rematch. Huntingdon told Morgan he'd change that in two nights and encouraged him to watch closely to what he was going to do tonight. (B)

Quote:
Triple Threat Tag Team Elimination Match
Joe Sexy and Frederique Antonio Garcia vs. Jungle Lord and Robbie Retro vs. Squeeky McClean and Paul Huntingdon

Morgan stuck around to watch from ringside, with six of his potential title challengers squaring off in this one. Despite the battle royal being two days away, the six involved were able to focus on teaming together, Sexy and Frederique's existing alliance of course helping them while Jungle and Retro and Huntingdon and Squeeky had no particular beef with each other. The beef that did exist was between Jungle Lord and Joe Sexy, which meant Sexy tried his best to keep Jungle Lord on the apron. Huntingdon and Morgan's issue would come to the forefront as well, with Huntingdon repeatedly yelling at Morgan when he was in the ring. Most of the match saw Retro being worked over, Jungle Lord growing more and more worked up on the apron until finally being unleashed on all five opponents with the big tag. The beating Retro took would come back to haunt him, as he tagged himself when Jungle Lord followed Sexy to the outside and the disco dude was ultimately pinned by Huntingdon for the first elimination. But Huntingdon responded by turning to berate Joey Morgan, meaning the second elimination came just moments later, when Frederique opportunistically rolled him up for the pin.

Winners: Sexy and Frederique in 11:25
(B-)
The sudden ending to the match clearly didn't settle anything and the fight quickly broke out all over again once the match was over. Morgan looked on as his six possible contenders would brawl in the ring, until some familiar music hit.



Caught up in the fight, nobody in the ring really reacted, which proved to be a big mistake as Skull entered the ring and clattered Jungle Lord with a clothesline. Frederique was symbolically hurled over the top rope before Sexy walked into a chokeslam from DeBones. Retro was next to taste a chokeslam, before Squeeky was grabbed and hit with the Skull Krusher. Huntingdon suffered the same fate as Squeeky, DeBones leaving all six men laying in and around the ring. DeBones then turned his attentions to Joey Morgan who was watching all of this from the outside of the ring and pointed his way. Duane hyped that the complexion of the North American #1 Contenders Battle Royal on Thursday had completely changed, as Morgan glanced at the belt draped over his shoulder briefly as he looked on and tried to hide his concern. (C+)


Ahead of the main event, a video aired hyping the main event of Nothing To Lose between Remo and Jack Bruce for the SWF World Title. (B-)

Quote:

Jack Bruce and Valiant w/Hannah vs. Remo and Brandon James w/Krissy Angelle
This was a big time main event, not least because the two men who'd compete for the World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of this Thursday's PPV were on opposite teams. Jack was fired up and the crowd were right there with him, as he and Valiant started off strong against their two rivals. Remo and James knew they had to slow their opponents early momentum down and were able to do just that when an errant knee from the outside lead to Valiant being clotheslined by Remo and the opposition took over. Bruce proved a vocal presence on the apron, keeping the crowd in his and Valiant's corner and urging his partner on through the subequent beating he took from the champ and Big Money. And when Valiant was eventually able to make a tag Jack was like a house on fire taking the fight to his opponents.

The size Jack gave up to both opponents was more than made up for by rage and adrenaline as he ran through James, knocking Remo from the apron to ensure he didn't get involved. That only really succeeded in making the World Champion mad, but by the time he'd collected his thoughts and got back in Jack was ready for him and took on Remo as well. Valiant rejoined the fray just as James and Remo looked to team up on Bruce and soon all four men were going at it in a chaotic scene that the crowd were no doubt hoping to see. A frenetic final stretch came down to Valiant being flung into the barricade by James and Bruce taking out Remo with a clothesline. James and Bruce would then go at it for the final couple of minutes, culminating in Bruce avoiding a running big boot in the corner and hitting the New York Minute on Big Money as he hobbled out of the corner hamstrung by his awkward landing, picking up the win for his team.

Winners: Bruce and Valiant, via pinfall, in 18:18
(B)

Valiant was able to rejoin Bruce in the ring to celebrate the big win, but the celebrations were brought to a brief halt when Remo returned. Holding the World Title in his hand, Remo got in the face of Bruce, Valiant watching on cautiously from the side incase anything should go down between the two. Remo doesn't resort to a cheapshot though, champion and challenger merely staring each other down, before Remo walked off mouthing "this Thursday" as he went. Remo then exited up the aisle, title still in hand, for now, leaving Bruce and Valiant to celebrate the win for the crowd. (B)

Post Show Report
  • The Positives
Eric came out of the segment with Everest looking good and he performed excellently on the mic again. Giving him a role that basically ensures he's going to talk smack before every match is, unsurprisingly, working really well for him.

The triple threat went well and it was helped by having the seconds on the outside. Huey and Scott both did some good work on the outside but Randy really makes an awesome second for Zimmy.


  • The Negatives
Robbie had a rough night. He didn't look at his best in either the match or the attack by DeBones.

Jefferson wasn't at his best in the triple threat either.


  • Talent Concerns
"Kurt Laramee can't sell anything worth a damn in my opinion, he needs to learn how to work" - Brandon James. Let's maybe keep that one between us. I doubt Kurt would take it too well if it was said to his face somehow.

The Supreme Wrestling Federation presents...
SWF NOTHING TO LOSE 2016
FEBRUARY WEEK 2
(Mid West; 36,000 in attendance)
0.76 Buy Rate, 381,042 Buys

Duane and Emma's introduction to the show would be hastened somewhat compared to usual, as when the PPV got underway, Eric Eisen was already making his way to the ring. Eric wasn't alone though, with a rather large companion following him to the ring. After welcoming everyone to the show, Eric filled in the blanks- while sadly he wasn't able to let Everest answer the open challenge on Supreme TV this past Tuesday, he had come up with a make-good and now, rather than offering one opportunity, he was offering two. Tonight he'd be competing in another Open Invitational match to make up for Tuesday. And to make things up to Everest, he'd offered him the prestigious position of his official bodyguard. Eric claimed this proved once again that the Eisens were all about giving, before inviting his opponent for the night to come on down. (C+)

Quote:


Eric Eisen Open Invitational Match
Eric Eisen w/Everest vs. Jimmy Hernandez


Hernandez certainly met Eric's new weight requirement, but beating him proved no small task for the former World Champion. Eric may have been used to having things his own way with the Open Invitational in recent weeks, but Hernandez proved a tricky customer, finding a way to keep the match far more competitive than Eric would have liked and convincing the crowd that Eric might actually be shut up. Eric though had a new trick up his sleeve. And sure enough, when the opportunity arose, Eric distracted the referee and allowed Everest to level Hernandez with a clothesline on the outside, almost flipping him inside out from the force. Once Hernandez was flung back in, he was much easier pickings for Eisen and not long afterwards, The Supremacy landed to give Eric another win in his Open Invitational.

Winner: Eric Eisen, via pinfall, in 8:21
(B-)
Backstage, Ana Garcia was with Brandon James and Krissy Angelle at the interview area. Krissy explained on behalf of Brandon that tonight was about two goals. Number one, he was going to get his hands on Valiant and prove decisively who the better man was between the two of them. And number two, after winning the battle royal, Brandon would wipe the floor with Joey Morgan and take the North American Championship, pointing out that more championships meant more money and that Brandon was and always had been the true Big Money player in the SWF. (C+)

Quote:


Mikey Lau vs. Hollywood Bret Starr

It was put up or shut up for Starr, after his complaints of a 'fluke pin' by Lau at When Hell Freezes Over. Starr came into this with a clear gameplan- cheat at every opportunity and it seemed to work. Whenever it looked like Lau was about to rifle off a series of kicks, a resourceful thumb to the eye or resorting to pulling the referee in the way allowed Starr to put a stop to it. Starr's tactic was going well, but one mistimed corner charge turned things right around. And once Lau got going it seemed Starr had no answer to the barrage of kicks he was met with. There was a twist in the tail however, as with Starr claiming injury to the referee to try and gain a breather, Sammy Smoke would appear and drop Lau's neck across the top rope. Incapacitated briefly, Lau stumbled into the path of the Hollywood Hammer and Starr had picked up a victory that he scarsely deserved.

Winner: Hollywood Bret Starr, via pinfall, in 8:40
(C)

Starr seemed as surprised about the outcome as anyone though and that fact was pointed out on commentary by Duane, as Smoke left up the aisle taunting not Lau but Starr, who was clearly confused about why the interference had occured. (C)
In the backstage area, we dropped in on another conversation between Jessie and Kristen Pearce, with Jessie doing most of the talking for once. Jessie tried to explain to Kristen that now wasn't a great time to be testing out a new manager during Angry Gilmore's matches and particularly not tonight with a World Title shot on the line. Kristen naturally seemed put out by this and Jessie insisted that she'd try and ask again when the timing was right, to which Kristen replied that she'd better. Before Jessie could leave, Kristen then stopped her and handed her something we don't see, telling Jessie that if 'Tom' doesn't want her at ringside then she'd better show him this for her. Jessie seemed confused, as she watched Kristen walk off before heading off in the opposite direction. (C)

Quote:



SWF World Tag Team Championship, Triple Threat Match
The Awesomeness (c) vs. The Amazing Bumfholes vs. The Pain Alliance


The Awesomeness didn't look their usual cocky selves here tonight, given that they had two teams to get past and the fact Jefferson was pinned two nights ago. This certainly seemed like their biggest test to date. It's hard to say whether they rose to the occasion or not, as they spent quite a bit of the match on the apron leaving The Pain Alliance and The Bumfholes to go at it, keeping themselves fresh, but forcing themselves to keep darting into the ring to break up pinfalls and preserve their titles. Once they eventually got directly involved in the match they formed a tentative alliance with Big Smack and Laramee, ensuring Zimmy was worked over for a bit. The Awesomeness couldn't sneak a win without The Pain Alliance breaking it up though and soon enough, Zimmy had brought in Randy during an arguement between the two other teams and chaos ensued with all six men in the ring. Huey and Randy would hit dives to the floor on The Pain Alliance, allowing Zimmy to almost roll up Jefferson for the win and the titles. In the end though, it was Jefferson who'd redeem himself for Tuesday night, picking his spot and catching Big Smack with a springboard kick amidst the chaos and holding him down just long enough for the three to retain the belts.

Winners and still SWF World Tag Team Champions: The Awesomeness, via pinfall, in 10:44
(B-)

Lucky to have gotten away with the win, The Awesomeness looked mighty relieved as they celebrated their win in the aisle, barely able to hide that relief as they clutched the Tag Team Titles to their chests and kissed them repeatedly. (C)
In the catering area we found BJ O'Neill, filling up from the salad bar. As she did so the camera panned out to reveal Justin Sensitive in his lab coat looking on, shaking his head disapprovingly and with a pained expression on his face. Approaching the bikini clad Hawaiian, Sensitive carefully tapped her on the shoulder and introduced himself. He explained that he noticed her from across the room and he wanted to talk to her about skincare. O'Neill, naturally, assumed that Sensitive wanted to share tips, but it turned out that that was far from what he had in mind. Producing a tube from his coat pocket, he presented her, Sensitivity. With this, her skin would be soft and delicate, not shiny and oily. And if she was going to show off so much skin then, well, it might as well look better than it does. O'Neill actually heard Sensitive out, albeit through gritted teeth and took the tube from him, asking how quick this stuff was supposed to work. Sensitive confidently claimed that it'd take just a couple of days, so O'Neill suggested that maybe she'd try it out and get back to him on Tuesday to give him her verdict. Sensitive seemed pleased with this and happily agreed, before offering a further tip, that she should probably start with her back. As Sensitive then exited, O'Neill shook her head in disbelief, with a look that clearly suggested she had more than consumer feedback on her mind for Sensitive on Tuesday. (C-)

With a North American Championship shot potentially minutes away, all ten competitors looked focused and determined on their way out. The wildcard thrown into the mix two nights ago was the return of Skull DeBones and it quickly became apparent that everybody else in the match had one eye on him, with no less than four people going after him right from the bell. One of those was not Jungle Lord, who pursued Joe Sexy, with Sexy doing his best to hide behind Brandon James and force those two to fight instead.

It took a while for the first elimination to come, maybe because DeBones was being targetted by so many of those involved. But DeBones would keep fending people off and eventually found enough space to grab Squeeky by the throat, before hurling him over the top to the floor. Robbie Retro wasn't far behind and Duane said that was why DeBones had to be considered the odds-on favourite to win. Being the favourite made him a marked man though and pretty soon the rest of those in the ring had turned their attentions his way again. This time, DeBones couldn't fight them off and with the combined efforts of Brandon James, The Crippler, Joe Sexy, Frederique and even Jungle Lord, DeBones was shockingly gone, to boos from the crowd.

Eliminated: Squeeky McClean (by DeBones), Robbie Retro (by DeBones), Skull DeBones (by James, Crippler, Sexy, Frederique and Jungle Lord)

Seven men were left and the match would slow back down for a while into a normal battle royal pattern, until Jungle Lord was able to fight off the attack of Sexy and Frederique and fire back up. Frederique was sent aside with an overhand right and Sexy's attempts to beg off fell on deaf ears, so he tried to fight. Jungle Lord overwhelmed Sexy though and after sending him to the ropes, a big clothesline sent Sexy up and over to the floor, causing Jungle Lord to beat his chest. A few minutes later, Paul Huntingdon had thought he'd eliminated Brandon James, but Big Money only went to the apron and Huntingdon's desperate attempts to put him out the rest of the way only ended with him being bundled over the top and out, much to his dismay. While the referees tried to convince Huntingdon to leave, Joe Sexy would then suddenly return from the back, this time with James Prudence in tow. And their distraction allowed Frederique to run into Jungle Lord from behind, the combined efforts of The Fabulous Three making sure Jungle Lord hit the floor and was eliminated, at which point Sexy and Prudence sprinted to the back, with Jungle Lord in hot pursuit.

Eliminated: Joe Sexy (by Jungle Lord), Paul Huntingdon (by James), Jungle Lord (by Frederique w/Prudence and Sexy's help)

That left us down to four- Frederique, Valiant, The Crippler and Brandon James. Taking a corner each, the four would tentatively circle before going at it, nobody looking to form any sort of alliance. Frederique would be the first to go at the hands of Brandon James and at that point James decided to go after Valiant, with Crippler looking like he'd stand aside and let him. Valiant would fight back against both, forcing them to actually team up to shut him back down. But at that point Crippler showed his true colours and went after James. That lack of teamwork would cost them, as James drilled Crippler with a spinebuster, then went to clothesline Valiant over the top, only to be backdropped out. Crippler and Valiant would then brawl briefly before Valiant was sent over the top, landing on the apron, then catching Crippler with a snapmare of sorts to bring him to the apron with him. A fight would ensue on the apron, both teetering on the brink of elimination, before a running knee from Valiant stunned The Crippler and he was hurled off the apron into the edge of the announce table to give Valiant the victory.

Eliminated: Frederique Antonio Garcia (by James), Brandon James (by Valiant), The Crippler (by Valiant)

Winner: Valiant, in 18:51
(B-)
As Valiant's hand was raised in victory and he wearily climbed back into the ring, on the outside more referees were out trying to hold Brandon James back, who was fuming at Valiant's win. Valiant waved him on but James was unable to get past the sea of referees. And his mood wasn't improved much when Joey Morgan's music hit and the North American Champion made his way out, forcing Valiant to refocus while James was ushered to the back by the officials. (B-)

Quote:



SWF North American Championship
Joey Morgan (c) vs. Valiant w/Hannah


Having gone through a near twenty minute battle royal, Valiant understandably got off to a bad start, with Morgan sensing his opponent's fatigue and taking him to the mat to wear him down even more. Morgan would have things much his own way for the early minutes, but Valiant wasn't going down without a fight and kept kicking out as Morgan went for covers after every high impact move he landed. Finding some reserves of energy from somewhere, Valiant managed to fight back midway into the match, turning this into the competitive title match the fans would have hoped for. And Valiant, having fought so hard for the shot, looked like he might take the title, right up until the point that a high knee sent Morgan to the floor. Valiant looked to take a rest with the count being put on Morgan, but he was suddenly blindsided by a returning Brandon James, causing the DQ.

Winner: Valiant, via disqualification, in 8:59
(B)

Duane condemned James's actions on commentary as he put the boots to Valiant, Valiant too exhausted to fight his rival off. A Big Money Move left Valiant motionless in the centre of the ring and James even threatened to take a swipe at the referee in his anger, before he eventually left the ring, damage done. Duane claimed Brandon was the poorest sport we'd ever seen in the SWF, but Emma of course lept to his defence. (B)
Backstage Ana Garcia was standing by with Angry Gilmore. Ana asked if Gilmore was concerned at all that Rogue had a plan up his sleeve to beat him tonight and Gilmore said he was sure Rogue did have a plan, but those plans had never gotten the job done thus far. Ana asked if Gilmore was worried about the steel chair Rogue had been using in recent weeks, but Gilmore claimed he wasn't concerned about that either. He said no matter what Rogue was planning, history had shown that he had Rogue's number and as far as the chair went, he might just have a secret weapon of his own. (C+)

Quote:


World Championship #1 Contenders Match
Angry Gilmore w/Jessie vs. Rogue


The record between these two was certainly one-sided in the favour of Angry Gilmore going in to this one. Rogue seemed particularly confident here despite that, which clearly concerned Duane even if it didn't concern Gilmore. After all, when it came to Rogue's propensity to bending the rules, the clue was in the name. Gilmore stuck to his typical gameplan and tried to outwrestle Rogue early on, which he did, causing Rogue's confidence to wane just a little. Rogue eventually managed to turn the tide though, as he slid a steel chair into the ring. It was right in front of the official, but it proved to be just a decoy, as he thumbed Gilmore in the eyes while the official was occupied and flung him into the steel steps, damaging Gilmore's shoulder.

The arm and shoulder became Rogue's focus as it was his turn to control the match for a while. Gilmore found himself in the unfamiliar position of being down on the mat and put through a variety of holds by his opponent, leaving Jessie looking more and more concerned as things wore on. The pace would pick up again when Gilmore got off the mat and back into it and both men began looking for the win at that point, a sudden sense of urgency now injected into the battle. Gilmore's arm would bother him for the rest of the match and that gave Rogue an opportunity to halt his momentum more than once. But Gilmore fought through the pain and stayed right with Rogue all the way to the finish, bad arm and all. Whatever Rogue's plan was coming in, it seemed to go out of the window as Gilmore missed the Sky High Elbow and landed on the bad arm. Glancing towards the timekeeper's area, it seemed like Rogue was eyeing up a chair. But with Gilmore down and hurt already, he decided against it. That proved to be his undoing though, as he would go for Crashing On, but not connect. Gilmore had an ingenious and unexpected counter for it, one which trapped Rogue into a surprise pin which kept him down for the three and gave Gilmore the victory and the number one contendership.

Winner: Angry Gilmore, via pinfall, in 22:28
(B)

Duane put over the resourcefulness of Gilmore as he celebrated the win, despite the bad arm. And Duane pointed out that Gilmore would be watching the main event very closely now, because next month Gilmore would be facing the winner for the World Heavyweight Championship. (B)
Before the main event, a video aired hyping the match. The powerful and imposing champion, versus the popular, charismatic challenger. (B)

Quote:



SWF World Heavyweight Championship
Remo (c) vs. Jack Bruce


As main events go, this might have been the biggest in some time. Remo, the reigning World Champion against Jack Bruce, the man who'd held the gold more than anyone in history. As such, the crowd were amped up for this from the get-go.

If this was worthy of being a Supreme Challenge main event, it certainly resembled one, with both guys holding nothing back. Jack would go for the victory mere minutes into the match, but Remo was able to avoid the New York Minute. Remo responded soon afterwards by going for The Destroyer, but Bruce was ready for it and met him running in with an elbow. A big brawl around the ring and up the ramp saw Bruce taking a suplex on the steel that echoed around the arena. Remo was hit with a DDT on the apron when they fought back to the ring and a tornado DDT once they were both back inside in for a two count. Remo eventually regained his bearings despite the pressure Jack was continuing to put him under and came up with a potentially match altering move a few minutes later, delivering The Destroyer onto the apron after Bruce was knocked through the ropes. Bruce narrowly avoided being counted out and losing the match, beating the count back in at nine, but Remo didn't seem to be too phased and simply went back on the offence.

The pace would eventually take it's toll on both men, with the match slowing considerably as time went on and the match passed the fifteen minute mark. Remo was on top, but clearly he was feeling the effects just as much as Jack was, even if he was on his feet more than the challenger. Remo looked to have retained the gold as he finally hit The Destroyer in the middle of the ring, but Bruce shocked everyone by kicking out. Despite the pain and the exhaustion, Bruce was then able to catch Remo out of nowhere with a New York Minute moments later, but Remo got his shoulder up before the three as well.

Both looked drained as the match drew to a close and it seemed to be a matter of who could actually hit a clean shot to finish things by the end. Jack drew on the crowd's support to put up a fight, Remo staying with him through sheer stubborn determination not to give up his championship. Unfortunately, we wouldn't find out who the better man really was tonight, as The Crippler would make his presence known at the finish. With Jack's back turned and the referee checking on Remo after being stunned by a jawbreaker, The Crippler would leap to the apron and smash Jack in the back of the neck with a double sledge, dropping him to the mat. And that would leave Bruce easy pickings for another Destroyer and the win for Remo, albeit far from decisive.

Winner and still SWF World Heavyweight Champion: Remo, via pinfall, in 21:09
(C+)

The show closed with Remo celebrating with the title, clearly exhausted as he raised the World Title above his head. Duane couldn't hide his disappointment at the way things went down, but however it went down, Remo was still the SWF World Heavyweight Champion. (B)

Post Show Report
Well, no sugar coating it. That was disappointing. Very disappointing. I think we all had the same vibe back here that I'm guessing you had watching along, the show lacked some juice and the main event really hurt the show as a whole. I figured that'd be a home run, but apparently not.
  • The Positives
Eric was superb again with his promo work. You can sense he's really getting into this open invitational deal. Or maybe he just really likes the freedom to say whatever he wants on a live microphone.

It's early days but Kristen seems to be settling into her role as the Schemer newcomer. She did a better job tonight than she had done prior, so positive signs going forward.


  • The Negatives
The main event. Simply put, it didn't go to plan. Same deal as Gilmore and Rogue on the first show of the year, they tried to do too much and the match went too long. It sucks to see someone like Jack in a match that just doesn't work, he's a legend. He was really off his game tonight though and I think the way the match was structured had a lot to do with it. Too long, too taxing. A real shame.

The other problem tonight was the battle royal, which was probably placed in a bad spot. Telling the guys to focus on getting the crowd going in a battle royal made some sense, after all, it's just a battle royal. But following the Tag Title match, the crowd were ready for something more substantial. James didn't have a great showing either, which considering he got the most eliminations probably didn't help.


  • Gimmick Changes
Everest's new Bodyguard role didn't get a real strong reaction either way. It probably didn't help that he was overshadowed by Eric. But it should be fine.

Sammy Smoke's new role as a Cocky heel went down a lot better though, he's great at it. It's a little more generic than the Conman character we had him playing but with his position on the card, something a little broader is okay.

Zimmy and Randy made the adjustment to play more Wholesome Old School Faces tonight. Randy did okay but Zimmy did a very good job and I get the feeling it's going to suit him a whole lot more, which was the reason for making the change in the first place. Zimmy's great at getting sympathy.


  • Talent Concerns
Maryam Vega signed her contract before the show and she'll be starting up in Rhode Island next week. I'm surprised FREEDOM were going to be willing to let her go, but it's a good get for us.
---

So, I'm learning a few things as I go here. One of which being, don't get cute with the Match Aims.

IPW OWNER CRITICISES SWF IN INTERVIEW

Gil Thomas, the owner of Invincible Pro Wrestling out of the South West, conducted an interview this past week and made a number of scathing remarks directed at the SWF. What began as a regular run of the mill interview regarding his own company soon turned to the more general topic of the wrestling business as a whole. Thomas apparently took this as a chance to get people's attention or maybe just have a rant, as he claimed that he was "delighted" that the SWF were being challenged for their position as the #1 promotion in North American wrestling. Thomas claimed that the SWF were responsible for "more cheap-ass, mainstream trash content than the rest of the business put together" and he hoped they were knocked off their perch so that "someone with an ounce of credibility could make the wrestling business cool".

The SWF have responded to the seemingly unprovoked comments by not reacting. Word from the SWF side is that they were surprised Thomas took a shot at them and dismissed it as a local promoter trying to gain some publicity.

RIPW RIVALRY REPORT

After retaining the RIPW Championship last month at Championship Battle over Ekuma, "Rivalry" posed champion Spencer Spade another equally daunting task. Fresh off of an impressive victory over Matty Faith on that same show, Primus Allen was granted a shot at the RIPW Title. And he made sure Spade would be pushed all the way in his second defence since regaining the title. Allen, the former nose tackle at West Missouri Tech, out-weighed the champion by some 70-odd pounds, meaning Spade had to dig deep to find a way to withstand the challenger's power and win. But win he did, after Allen got a little too over-exuberant, missed a shoulder charge in the corner and left himself open for the champion to put him away to cap a tough title defence.

Elsewhere on the show, the USA Championship would be on the line again and for the second month in a row the champion Robbie Wright would retain but in unconvincing fashion, this time beating the referee's ten count to score a win over Ranger; "The African Assassin" Lassana Makutsi put away Masked Patriot in a back and forth encounter between two promising competitors; and the opening tag team match pitting Avalanche and Chill, The Domination, against the new team of Dominic DeSousa and the debuting JOJI ended without a clear conclusion, as the two teams fought to the fifteen minute time limit.

RIPW's next event will be the second annual March To Victory tournament, with last year's winner Masked Patriot, RIPW Champion Spencer Spade and Ekuma already confirmed to be involved.

RIPW RIVALRY- The Domination (Avalanche and Chill) went to a time limit draw with JOJI and Dominic De Sousa (E+), USA TITLE: Robbie Wright defeated Ranger by count out (E+), Lassana Makutsi defeated Masked Patriot (D), RIPW TITLE: Spencer Spade defeated Primus Allen to retain the RIPW Title (D+)

SWF SUPREME TV - FEB WEEK 3
(South East; 13,000 in attendance)
10.13 Rating - 7,603,500 viewers

The show would begin with Jack Bruce coming out, wasting no time in making his way to the ring, with Duane putting over the effort both he and Remo put into their World Championship match at Nothing To Lose. Bruce cut right to the chase, saying that he might not be standing here as the seven time SWF World Champion as he'd hoped to and there was one man responsible for that, Chris Morrisette. Bruce explained that as much as he was upset about not being champion, he was just as upset that he and Remo didn't get to settle what was one of the most gruelling matches he'd been involved in in a long time, nor did he get to prove that as good as Remo was, he was better than him. Bruce said that he'd deal with Morrisette some other time and he'd get another title shot down the line, but right now the Remo thing was sticking in his craw even more, so he challenged Remo to finish this, right here tonight. The crowd seemed understandably excited at the prospect and let out a big roar when Remo's music hit. The champion would head to the ring, staring at Bruce intently. And seemingly just as annoyed as Jack that their issue hadn't been settled, Remo simply told Bruce that he was on. (B)

Quote:
Jimmy Hernandez vs. Bear Bekowski
Hernandez was giving up size and surliness to Bekowski, making this a tough task for the laid back upstart. Hernandez would imploy a hit and move strategy that seemed to work pretty well for a while, with Bekowski struggling to hit a moving target. Once Bekowski caught Hernandez though the size advantage became clear and Bekowski would put Hernandez away after catching him with a big powerslam.

Winner: Bear Bekowski, via pinfall, in 6:05
(C)
Ana Garcia was backstage with The Fabulous Three of Joe Sexy, Frederique Antonio Garcia and James Prudence for an interview. While Sexy and Frederique both failed to win the battle royal at Nothing To Lose, they all seemed in high spirits, having cost Jungle Lord the match as well. When asked if they were concerned at all about making Jungle Lord even angrier, the three blew Ana off to talk about The Platinum Blondes's match with The Amazing Bumfholes tonight, with Frederique claiming they were back in the Tag Title hunt. (C+)


Footage from Nothing To Lose aired, replaying the finish of Hollywood Bret Starr's match with Mikey Lau and the key involvement of Sammy Smoke. (C-)

Quote:
Sammy Smoke vs. Steven Parker
The announcers speculated on exactly why Sammy got involved in the match at Nothing To Lose, but seemed pretty short on answers. Sammy meanwhile had other things on his mind, namely picking up a big win. Parker showed plenty of energy, but Smoke withstood it to win with the Ace In The Hole.

Winner: Sammy Smoke, via pinfall, in 5:48
(C)
In a bad mood, The Pain Alliance (and the cameraman they'd 'convinced' to film them) were in the parking lot, leant up against a car with a small pile of crumpled cans at their feet. Laramee, in intimidating fashion, said that despite what happened at the PPV, they weren't done with the Tag Team Titles and they weren't done with the Bumfholes or The Awesomeness either. They were still the best tag team in the SWF and in a straight-up fight there wasn't a team man enough to even test them. Scott chimed in saying that making two teams your bitch at once was tough work, so maybe they'd go about getting the titles in a different way, but the belts would be coming back to them real soon. Laramee then told the cameraman to beat it, which he was only too happy to do. (C)

Duane and Emma narrated a recap of the North American #1 Contenders Battle Royal, as well as Brandon James costing Valiant the North American Title match itself with Joey Morgan. It was then announced that the three men in the battle royal at the end, Valiant, Brandon James and The Crippler, would be in a triple threat match at Awesome Impact to determine the number one contender for the World Title at The World Is Watching. (B)

Quote:
Angry Gilmore w/Jessie vs. Squeeky McClean
The current number one contender already knew his date with destiny, with a shot at Remo at Awesome Impact in the bag with his victory over Rogue. Gilmore was clearly not resting on his laurels before the PPV however, with a tough test against Squeeky McClean here. The Squeekster clearly knew this was a golden opportunity in it's own right and gave Gilmore all he could handle, picking up where Rogue left off in targetting Gilmore's left arm and shoulder. Gilmore still had his right to lay into Squeeky with chops though and he fought back, showing exactly why he's the new number one contender. Squeeky had one more big move in him, almost picking up the upset with the Clean Out. Gilmore kicked out though and after escaping the Stain Removal, he dumped Squeeky with a german suplex and delivered Anger Management moments later to pick up the win.

Winner: Angry Gilmore, via pinfall, in 11:42
(B)
A video aired hyping Brandon James. (B-)


BJ O'Neill was in the ring when we came back, with Emma suggesting she must be here for more skin cream and slyly adding that she could do with it, earning her an admonishment from Duane. BJ invited Justin Sensitive to the ring, with Sensitive wearing a big cheesy smile on his face as he made his way out. BJ talked about Sensitive's 'kind offer' at Nothing To Lose and asked him if he liked what he saw, doing a quick twirl which drew wolf whistles from the crowd. Sensitive though claimed that he didn't like what he saw, making him very much alone in that fact, asking BJ if she followed the instructions and applied the cream properly. Smirking, BJ tutted at Sensitive and told him that actually, she didn't try the cream and she wasn't out here to offer him any feedback. Instead, she had someone who'd like to offer up some 'constructive criticism', which brought out American Machine. (D+)

Quote:
American Machine w/BJ O'Neill vs. Justin Sensitive
Sensitive clearly wasn't expecting a match tonight, but given the way Machine ran through him, it probably wouldn't have mattered. Machine tore off Sensitive's lab coat and put an unanswered beating on him, finishing the skincare entrepreneur off with the Old Glory to BJ's amusement.

Winner: American Machine, via pinfall, in 4:04
(C-)
Ana Garcia was stood by with The Crippler backstage, his face mostly hidden underneath the black hoodie he was wearing. When Ana questioned Crippler about interfering at Nothing To Lose, he looked up from underneath the hoodie and cut her question off. Crippler pointed out that he said a few weeks back, wherever Jack was, he wouldn't be far behind. All he did last Thursday was live up to his word. Ana enquired if that meant we were going to see The Crippler again tonight, with Crippler snorting and replying "you don't listen, do you?" before walking off. (C+)


Duane was in the ring to interview Joey Morgan again, first congratulating him on still being the North American Champion after Nothing To Lose. Duane pointed out that the match was marred by interference though and not for the first time. Morgan agreed and voiced his frustration over the inconclusive finishes to his recent matches, saying that it seemed like every match he had recently, he was getting caught up in somebody else's business. Morgan stated that he'd always set out to be a fighting champion and he'd defend the belt against whoever, whenever, he just wanted to do so without all the run-ins and disqualifications taking away from the fact that he was the North American Champion. Morgan would be cut off moments later as Paul Huntingdon would interrupt, making his way out onto the stage with a scowl on his face. Huntingdon said he was getting fed up of Morgan ducking him and if he was really a fighting champion, he'd grant him the fair rematch he deserved. Morgan apparently had no problem with this challenge, telling Huntingdon they could do it at Awesome Impact and Huntingdon agreed immediately. He warned Morgan that the title belonged to him and once he got the belt back, all would be good and proper in the SWF again. (C+)


In his locker room Angry Gilmore was icing his shoulder, still feeling the effects of his match earlier on. Jessie seemed concerned and asked if he was sure he was alright, when a voice came from off screen telling her to stop fussing. The voice, of course, was Kristen Pearce's, who tells Jessie that of course he's fine, he's used to getting beat up. Kristen lack of concern soon became clear, as she wanted to talk instead about her managerial offer. Jessie tried to insist now was not the time again, but Gilmore interjected before this could turn into a debate and said it was fine. He thanked Kristen for the advice she put together on countering the Crashing On at Nothing To Lose (to which Kristen not so humbly replied "thank you") and told her that she could be at ringside next week, on a trial basis. Jessie asked if he was sure and Gilmore nodded, so Jessie shrugged and welcomed her sister to the team, earning her an enthusiastic hug. (C)

Quote:
Eric Eisen Open Invitational Match
Eric Eisen w/Everest vs. Brett Biggins

The Open Invitational was in effect and Brett Biggins was the man to step up tonight. Biggins had the advantage of being the most experienced competitor to have tested Eric to date, which might have given Eric something different to think about. Whatever threat Biggins posed though would be snuffed out, when Everest got a hold of him on the floor and crushed Biggins up against the ring apron. Rolled back in, Biggins was clearly hurt and Eisen was on his way to a comfortable victory with The Supremacy thanks to his big bodyguard.

Winner: Eric Eisen, via pinfall, in 6:03
(B-)

Eric celebrated in the ring, on his own, Duane's criticisms falling on deaf ears as Emma warned him not to ruin another Eric Eisen Open Invitational Celebration. (B-)
A video aired focusing on the World Tag Team Champions, The Awesomeness, with clips of them in action overlayed with some of their many, varying boasts about themselves. (C)

Quote:
The Amazing Bumfholes vs. The Platinum Blondes w/Joe Sexy
Two teams The Awesomeness would need to keep a close eye on clashed here hoping to catch the eye of SWF management and put themselves in line for a future title shot. The Bumfholes started out hot, but The Blondes showed their crafty side to isolate Randy from his brother. They also had the added benefit of Joe Sexy in the corner, with Sexy getting a cheapshot and a choke of his own in at one point from the outside. Randy was eventually able to get to Zimmy and he ran wild, at which point the match would break down and the referee would struggle to keep control. As Zimmy would take care of The Blondes, Sexy tried to help his buddies out by attacking Randy on the outside. Help would be on the way though, as Jungle Lord hit the ring and went after Sexy. As Jungle hammered on Sexy, Prudence became distracted, allowing Zimmy to come off the top with a quick crossbody and hold him down for the three, eeking out the win for the Bumfholes.

Winners: The Amazing Bumfholes, via pinfall, in 9:20
(C+)

Meanwhile, Sexy was able to rake Jungle Lord's eyes to ward him off, but Jungle Lord seemed to shrug it off and just beat his chest in response. Shocked, Sexy took off, running up the rampway with Jungle Lord in hot pursuit, chasing Sexy backstage and out of sight. (B-)

Before the main event, it was announced that next week Joey Morgan would go one on one with Rogue in a non title match, with Morgan out for revenge after Rogue's recent chair assaults. (B-)

Quote:

Remo vs. Jack Bruce
After a gruelling match last time out, fans knew to expect another great encounter here tonight. The title might not have been on the line, but tensions were no less high for it. Bruce had a point to prove, yet so did the champion, even with a win over Bruce in the bag. Like their match at Nothing To Lose this held a pretty frenetic pace, with the fight again spilling to the outside pretty early on. There was a little less chaos than last time, as they were soon back in the ring, but the action remained hot and heavy regardless of the location. A back and forth contest with neither man able to get the upper hand for long, it seemed this one could go either way at any point. Like at Nothing To Lose, Remo was able to survive a New York Minute, this time getting a foot on the bottom rope at the count of two to avoid being pinned. Bruce still seemed to be close to knocking off the champion though and appeared to have another New York Minute in mind late on in the match with Remo seemingly dazed. Unfortunately, we'd again end without a decisive finish, thanks to The Crippler, who ran out and attacked Jack Bruce in full view of the referee before he could deliver the move.

Winner: Jack Bruce, via disqualification, in 15:11
(B)
Boos rang out around the arena as The Crippler put a beating on Jack, Duane outraged that another match between Bruce and Remo had been ruined. But The Crippler wasn't able to continue his attack for long, as Valiant would hit the ring to make the save. Nailing Crippler with right hands, Valiant would send him flying over the top with a clothesline, checking on Jack as Crippler retreated up the ramp. Clearly shaken but not too badly injured, Jack was quickly back to his feet and demanded a microphone. Jack would tell Crippler that if he wanted a fight that bad, then let's do it. And after looking Valiant's way, Jack laid out a challenge, for next week, Jack and Valiant against The Crippler and Brandon James. Valiant seemed up for this and so did the fans, but The Crippler was giving nothing away as he backed up the ramp scowling at the two men in the ring. (B)
