SHWA iWrestle 3 results and notes

Elliot Forbes def. "Firefly" Felix Young
Before the match got underway, Ebenizah J. Klaus and his client Forbes, had some choice words for SHWA Commissioner, KJ Rollins, about his banning of Klaus at Collision Course. Young put up a valiant effort in his defeat against Forbes, at times looked like he had his first victory in the bag. Both men’s managers, “Flashy” Barry Hawkins and Klaus got involved, with Hawkins hitting a DDT on Klaus before turning into a clothesline by Forbes. Forbes finally got the win in 10:51 with the payroll.

"Mad" Mike Massive def. Avalanche

“Mad” Mike Massive was expecting a rematch with “Mr. Attitude” Aston Crude. Crude’s music hit and he was nowhere to be seen, when Avalanche emerged. Crude’s bodyguard proceeded to tell Massive, “Crude was too busy banging his wife.” Massive came away with some form of revenge when he hit the Black Hole Slam on Avalanche for the victory at 8:06.

Crimson Lightning def. Crazy Train
The battle of two SHWA favourites saw a competitive match with both men trying to one-up the other in the opening moments of the bout. Both men tried and failed to gain a victory when attempting to hit their finishing moves, before a series of pinning predicaments saw SHWA’s resident superhero, Lighting gain the surprise pinfall on Train at 9:22.

Jake Paragon def. The Wraith
This contest was another battle between two fan favourites. Paragon seemed to have something to prove after losing to the Wraith in two previous battles. Both men physically brutalised each other to the point of pure exhaustion before the Alpha Omega got his second wind and hit the lariat at 14:01 to gain his first victory over The Wraith.

SHWA Champion, Jarrad Slate def. Dan Steel
The first of two matches between Muscle Militia and Steel Kings members saw SHWA champion, Jarrad Slate successfully defend the title against the 2010 WPW Rookie of the Year, Dan Steel. Jimmy Jamal Jenkins attempted to help Steel on several occasions distracting referee, Liam, as Slate had Steel down for the count. The attempts were in vain as Slate applied the STF after a DAS BOOT! at 14:25 as Steel tapped out, giving the Muscle Militia victory in the first of two matches against the Steel Kings.

Jimmy Jamal Jenkins def. SHWA Golden Hardcore Shovel Champion, Pain
The main event held both men’s careers at stake, as the feud between the Muscle Militia and the Steel Kings had gotten to boiling point. Both men started brawling as soon as the bell rung, with Pain attacking Jenkins. The brawl proceeded to spill outside the ring, where a staple duel occurred. Both men bleeding after several staples had been uhhh... stapled into each man. Eventually, they ended up near the entrance way where Pain had left a big tractor tire, he had brought out with him. Pain beat Jimmy down and placed him inside the tire, proceeded to lift the tire up and ramming it into the ring apron with the tire bouncing off the ring. Pain looked to have the match all wrapped up after he had placed a table in the corner and hoisted Jenkins on his shoulders ready to put him through it, when seven or so heels hit the ring and proceeded to beat the living hell out of Pain, until the cavalry arrived. The faces including Pain’s stablemates Jarrad Slate and the Wraith, evened up the odds brawling throughout the Courtside Multisports Complex. Jenkins took advantage hitting the Krump Kutter on to a pile of thumbtacks at 16:49 to win the Golden Hardcore Shovel and end Pain’s career. All three Muscle Militia members were distraught after the match as the Steel Kings had finally got one up on them. Pain left the arena and SHWA to a standing ovation.

The Mean Scene #11

One half of the voices of Explosive Pro Wrestling, and the 2009 WPW Commentator of the Year, Mean Dean Olsen brings WPW all the latest on the EPW scene.

Welcome to The Mean Scene online, on the new awesome WPW website, now last month saw Explosive Pro Wrestling’s first show of the year Goldrush 4 and what a spectacular way to kick off the new year. The show had everything. A title change, a new number one contender crowned, a new title introduced and a number of surprises that I don’t think anyone saw coming.

The show was kicked off with the EPW tag titles on the line and Team All Star showed that their dominance in the company won’t be stopping in 2011 by defeating Jonny Wimbledon and Chris Vice to become the new tag team champions. After a great 2010 the All Stars continued their winning ways, ending Vice and Wimbledon’s reign of terror. A great match and an amazing way to start off a big show where it’s all about the championships.

JT defeated Brett Foxx in the second match up of the evening. Goldrush 4 was also dubbed “old school vs. the new generation” and this was a display of that with Foxx pinning JT at RA9 and JT was out for revenge. It was a heated match up with Foxx showing a lot of guts and potential for bigger and better things in the future for EPW. He is defiantly one to keep your eyes on, but in the end JT got the win and got to rectify his loss.

In the next segment of the show Devlin Reeves came out and announced his retirement from wrestling. Devlin, who hasn’t been seen since the Riot Den match at Road to Glory 2, was then confronted by his former allies The Blackest Hour. Rick Sanders then told Reeves that he couldn’t just walk away and then told Richter to attack Devlin. Much to everyone’s surprise Richter refused to beat down his former team mate and walked out on the Blackest Hour, a total shock to us all, Richter has been the backbone of the group and now it seems Rick Sanders has some evil plans in store with the new incarnation of the Blackest Hour with Adrian Priest and Dorian, who then had a match against Gavin McGavin and Ryan Dangerfield. Both teams fought hard in this battle and showed that EPW has some of the best up and coming talent at the moment as these guys battled it out and left nothing behind. In the end the Blackest Hour were victorious but McGavin and Dangerfield showed a lot of heart and weren’t easily beaten.

Next up, it was time to get hardcore as Tyler Jacobs was up against Alex Kingston in another match seeing the old school take on the new generation, it would also be an opportunity for Kingston to make a huge mark on EPW as a singles wrestler. Now at RA9 , Tyler Jacobs won the EPW Hardcore Shield (the bin lid) and Jacobs has claimed that shield was a joke, he told (and showed) former champ Chase Griffin that he is what hardcore is all about. To take a more serious approach to a hardcore title in EPW Jacob reviled a brand new EPW hardcore title belt, this new title belt looks fantastic and will replace the previous title. The match it self was over the top insanity with all sorts of weaponry. We saw shopping trolleys, a skateboard, trash cans and Tyler execute a massive Powerbomb on Kingston through our announce table. After much destruction it was Jacobs who got the win and retained his new title, showing everyone in EPW that it will not be easy if they want to hold that new belt.

Being Goldrush and it being all about the championships, it was only fitting to have a number one contenders match and this was a four way match involving AZ Vegara, Jimmy Payne, Chase Griffin and “Hollywood” Kiel Steria. It was a fast paced, hard hitting, action packed match, never a dull moment as all four competitors fought hard to get a future shot at the EPW championship. We saw everyone hit there finishers and some spectacular exchanges but in the end it was AZ Vegara who got the win and is now the new number one contender.

Earlier in the night leading toward the main event, I held an in ring interview with Marcius Pitt to address some of the things he said online. He spoke of wanting to win the title to raise his profile overseas and make a bigger name for himself. Before we got our full answers from Pitt, EPW champion Davis Storm came to the ring and told Pitt he was sick of seeing people disrespect the EPW title and wouldn’t let the “Golden Greek” use the EPW title as a stepping stone. Then I swiftly made my way out of the ring as the two competitors started beat the hell out of each other.

Then the time came for the main event at the end of the night and tension was at fever pitch between Storm and Pitt, tempers were flaring and both men were ready for war. Having recently found out about Pitt’s hidden agenda, Storm seemed to be hitting harder and putting all he had into this match up. Marcius on the other hand seemed to be more calculated with his offence, picking his moments to strike and even taking the low road on occasions, something we aren’t used to seeing of Pitt these days. Pitt had fought so hard for the last couple years to finally get his shot at the EPW championship; it seemed he wanted it no matter what he had to do to get it. This certainly was a new side we saw of Pitt, but Storm was not going down without a fight. The match was top of the line, momentum changed from either side and it seemed it was anyone’s for the taking but in the end Storm got the victory and retained his title. As Storm was celebrating a well fought match AZ Vegara came out and attacked the champion to send him the message that he is next in line and ready to reach his goal of being EPW champion.

So April 10th at Morley Sports and Rec Centre it will be the first ever EPW Midday Mayhem, a Sunday afternoon show that you should all get down to, as we will see AZ Vegara go up against Davis Storm for the EPW championship. AZ has been very impressive lately and we will soon find out if the “New Sensation” will be the new champion, I want to see you all there. Until next time keep supporting local wrestling and stay tuned to

The San Count #10

Ichi! Ni! San! WPW’s resident puro referee, Toshio, counts down his top san moments, matches and events on a bi-monthly basis.

Yes, is it that time again for my bi-monthly addition to Westside Pro Wrestling, this is the San Count! It's a brand new year as all the wrestling promotions of Western Australia have kicked off their year with a bang. In this edition of The San Count, I'll be discussing the top prospects for 2011 in the EPW, NHPW and SHWA companies respectively. Although the year has just began, many men have shown promise to make 2011 their biggest year yet. Kicking it off with...

ICHI - Marcius Pitt (EPW)
From being a mid-card wrestler for the majority of his time in EPW, to winning the invitational tournament, and then to main eventing the first main EPW show of the year for the title, Marcius Pitt has risen faster than most. We all knew Marcius Pitt would make it to the top one day, but what we didn't know was how he'd go about doing it. To the surprise of many, Marcius Pitt outlasted wrestlers like Chris Vice, Elliot Sexton, Kiel Steria and Carlo Cannon to earn himself the prestigious EPW Invitational Tournament trophy, which guarantees a shot at the EPW Championship. The challenge was set for Pitt at Goldrush 4, against Davis Storm in the main event. In the days leading to the match, Pitt made comments which many saw as disrepect towards EPW and the championship, making it seem like the title was only a stepping stone for Pitt to wrestle overseas in bigger promotions. Although he lost the match, his new found attitude and escalation to the main event will take Marcius Pitt a long way in 2011 in Explosive Pro Wrestling.

NI - Rhys Youngblood (NHPW)
Having only wrestled one match in NHPW, Youngblood made a huge impression in doing so. Coming off from a run in WWE's developemental territory Florida Championship Wrestling as Rhys Ali, Youngblood returned to his hometown in Perth in a match against Robbie Barnes (AWF) and Colt Cabana (ROH), accompanied by Mikki Murdoch (QLD). In what was an upset, Youngblood scored the victory over Cabana, which is a huge feat for any wrestler. The future of Youngblood in NHPW is unknown, but along with other wrestlers such as Tama Williams, he has a bright future which can take him to many places.

SAN - Aston Crude
"Mr. Attitude" Aston Crude has only been wrestling for four months, but in this time he has opened many eyes to the fact that he has never been pinned in a SHWA ring. He is very outspoken, as he always has something to say at the live shows, as well as on his own internet show, "Total Attitude" where he mocks every opponent he has ever faced. His rise has been evident since he debuted, as he has already targetted bigger opponents in SHWA, namely "Mad" Mike Massive, who gave Crude his first loss (by disqualification, due to Crude using chloroform to topple the former SHWA Champion). Many wrestlers desperately want to shut Crude up, but with "Mr. Attitude" now recruiting Avalanche as his bodyguard or "insurance policy", this becomes something even more difficult to accomplish. It is very clear that SHWA has a lot in store for Crude, and vice versa, as he continues his dominance throughout the company.
