WOE Special Comment
Now, as promised, a special comment about Sunday's Wrestling Over Everything show at the Improvement Hall in Swansea, Illinois.

DISCLAIMER: I'm biased. Deal with it.

With Sunday off work, Swansea was a quick trip to one wrestling show for the weekend. I knew very little about the lineup outside of the main event, so I didn't quite know what to expect...I'll leave it at that.

Your ring announcers were Chris Kaelin & Mo Kennedy Romero; your referees(all equipped with Ref Cam) were Jason Pemberton, Brian Fox, and Richard White.

Before the opening match, The Landlord approached LaMarcus Clinton and offered his managerial support...L.M.C. came close to capturing the Heavyweight Title but lost to Leone Mephisto at the previous event. L.M.C. teased throwing away the Rent's Due T-shirt, but finally put it on...ladies and gentlemen, we have a heel turn.

Frodo Meyer vs. LaMarcus Clinton(w/ The Landlord): I recognized Meyer from one of Dynamo Pro's training videos on Facebook...the green mohawk is pretty distinctive. He made his St. Louis-area debut in the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance the previous night. With Landlord by his side, Clinton's attitude took an arrogant turn as he insisted on attempting his corkscrew standing moonsault on several occasions...only to miss each time. Meyer looked decent for a relative newcomer, though he made the mistake of attempting a springboard move in this particular venue...Justin D'Air should have warned him about that. At least Meyer was able to adjust and pull off a flying tornado DDT out of the situation. Landlord got a bit too jumpy for his own good as he blatantly interfered with a baking pan, getting his new charge disqualified in 7:12. The beatdown continued after the match...Frodo was the official winner of the bout, but he didn't look like a winner by the end of things.

#PROSTATUS(Shane The Pain Train & David X) vs. The Sabotage Squad(Krispy 2 Pop & John Boi)(w/ unnamed cornerman): I hadn't seen Krispy since the days of Mid-America Xtreme Wrestling; he and his cohorts are of the Juggalo persuasion. I hadn't seen any of the other three, though I'd seen their names in show lineups; #PROSTATUS had the edge in the actual-gear department on this night. Chaos erupted near the end as Krispy had trouble keeping Shane's shoulders on the mat with his victory roll pin attempt, but he finally repeated the move and got the fall with John Boi lending an illegal hand from the floor in 7:00.

Jeff Gant vs. B.T. Daramola: I hadn't seen Gant in a while; he's a regular in Texas promotions but occasionally appears in the Midwest. Gant fought an uphill battle against his larger opponent, but there was only so much he could do (the low ceiling didn't help). B.T. scored the win with a Ron Simmons-style spinebuster in 5:45.

Barackus vs. Brandon Espinosa: For those keeping score, Barackus was the fan favorite in this one. Barackus relieved Espy of the MWR Missouri Title at MMWA in January, so some cross-promotional retribution was on Espy's mind. Espinosa targeted the arm after ramming Barackus' shoulder into the ringpost, hoping to wear him down for the cross-armbreaker...but he was never able to get the big man in the right position for the hold. One young fan shouted something along the lines of "Where's your green card?" at Espy, prompting the angry retort "I WAS BORN IN ST. LOUIS!" (Stay classy, wrestling fans.) The arm work wasn't enough to neutralize the size and power difference as Barackus won with the clawhold chokeslam in 13:30.

After the match, Espy got the microphone and talked about his own family heritage as well as his wife and child, saying that there's too much prejudice in the world nowadays. He got a positive response for his words, though he made it clear that he still didn't care for some of the fans. Heh.

Intermission~! Official Ben Simon Concession Count(tm): Hot dog(I slept late and didn't eat dinner before I went to the show), chips, and root beer.

"Infamous" Tyler Copeland came out and said that he'd been gaining momentum lately, so why wasn't he in the discussion of Heavyweight Title contenders? He suggested that Leone Mephisto might be afraid of him...but for the moment, he wanted to prove himself against one of the most underrated guys in the Midwest: Da'Marius Jones. He called Jones out to the ring and they agreed to face each other at the March 19th show...but Jones attacked him from behind before leaving the ring. Copeland(not dressed to compete) challenged Jones to fight him right then and there...and thus the impromptu match began.

"Infamous" Tyler Copeland vs. "2.0" Da'Marius Jones: One could argue that Copeland never fully recovered from Jones' attack...the match was competitive, but Jones picked up a slight upset win with the Paydirt in 4:31. Presumably they'll meet again in March, so Copeland can get his payback at that time.

Leone Mephisto(w/ Ace Roberts) vs. "The Roman Dynasty" Karim Brigante(w/ Miss Monica Passeri) for the Heavyweight Title: Mephisto claimed that he needed a manager just to carry his championship belts (he still has the Wrestling Invades America belt despite it no longer being active). Mephisto is one guy who will go above and beyond with his trash-talking to establish himself as the "bad guy" in a situation; in the video promos, he said that America wasn't so much the "land of opportunity" as it was a place of corruption. He said that once he got done with Brigante, he would show his lady a thing or two about "what you have to do to get ahead in America". Brigante recently returned to the U.S. and quickly made waves in this area, capturing the World League Wrestling Heavyweight Title the previous weekend and then defeating "The Freestyle Phenom" Jay Howard for the NWA Missouri Title on Saturday for NWA Central States Championship Wrestling. They had a really good main-event matchup with Ace Roberts running interference and Monica attempting to counteract his presence...Karim nearly won with Paydirt at one point but Ace put Mephisto's foot on the bottom rope. The referee was knocked down by accident and Brigante had Mephisto beaten after the roaring elbow, but there was no one to count the fall. Roberts ran in with the title belt to deck the challenger, which prompted Monica to slap him in the face before chasing him to the backstage area. Mephisto attempted a cover and a second official ran in to count...two. Ace came BACK out to interfere again, only to be knocked off the apron with another roaring elbow...but Mephisto got in a low blow that the referee somehow missed and rolled him up with feet on the ropes for the cheap win in 9:50. (HEEL~!)

After Mephisto and Roberts took their leave, Brigante was fuming over the screwy decision and lashed out at the fans, saying Mephisto was right about the corruption of America and its people. Cue "USA" chant, of course. His words brought Barackus out to the ring, but Brigante decided that he was just leaving...pencil that one in for March 19th as well.

At the end of the show, The Landlord called one of the fans into the ring("Grandma Betty") to profess his Valentine's Day wishes toward her(despite her constantly booing him)...then he teased giving her a Rock Bottom but didn't do it. Eep.

Anywho, that wraps up the week...I've been sick as a dog for the past few days and I'm just now getting caught up because I had to call off work tonight.

The rest of February looks like this:
-Saturday 2/18: Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling in East Carondelet, IL (start of the Classic Title tournament)
-Sunday 2/19: Glory Pro Wrestling in Alton, IL (Matt Riddle vs. Michael Elgin)
-Thursday 2/23: National Wrasslin' League in St. Louis, MO (Davey Gibson vs. Cornell Douglass, Dez Wellston vs. Adam Ryan, and Matthew Grundy vs. Cal Stark in the St. Louis Title tournament)
-Saturday 2/25: Dynamo Pro Wrestling in Alton, IL (Outtkast vs. Michael Elgin)

That's my special comment for this, the sixth wrestling show I've attended in the year 2017. Good night, good luck, and #yaywrestling.

NWL Special Comment
Now, as promised, a special comment about Thursday's National Wrasslin' League show at the Casa Loma Ballroom in St. Louis, Missouri.

DISCLAIMER: I'm biased. Deal with it.

NWL's third St. Louis offering had a slight improvement in attendance from the second show...they will be giving a different night of the week a try as the shows will move to Sundays starting on March 26th. The promo area was set up with The Blood Brothers(Davey Gibson & Matthew Grundy) & Jay Lutz bringing in fans for interviews...I gave it a shot and focused on pushing the night's lineup. I do have an announcer voice...I just haven't used it in a while.

Your ring announcer was Ben Simon, your referees were Michael Crase & Jason Pemberton, and your ring girl(holding the NWL St. Louis Title belt during the introductions for the tournament matches) was Laynie Luck.

"Takedown" Javy Torres(aka Paco Gonzalez) vs. "Greatness" Marcellus Gaines(aka Stephen Wolf)(w/ Drew Gold, aka Greg Jovi), St. Louis Title Tournament: These two met at the first NWL St. Louis show with Gaines emerging victorious, so I was thinking that Javy might even the score...the winner would face Todd Letterman in the quarterfinals. Both wrestlers have adjusted their styles for their NWL characters; Paco works a more technical game while Gaines relies on his fisticuffs and occasional aerial moves to showcase his athleticism. Torres nearly got the win with an anklelock and leg grapevine, but Gaines just barely reached the ropes. Gaines' punching power made the difference as he scored the win after a pop-up knockout punch in 7:05...I suspect the fans may support Letterman in that second-round matchup.

NWL President Major Baisden made his entrance to update fans on ticket deals and the move to Sundays; the PowerPoint is OVAH. He helpfully pointed out that "Thursdays = Bad, Sundays = Good"...hopefully that's the case, but running on Sundays will put NWL in a bit more conflict with other area wrestling companies. The PowerPoint was interrupted by a text message on the big screen from the mysterious manifesto guy...since Major IDed the tech guy as Rupert, I felt like yelling out "DAMN IT RUPERT, GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!" I've heard theories about who is behind the messages, but I don't like to make predictions...

Wayne Taylor(aka Jack Gamble) vs. "The Five-Star Phenom" Todd Letterman: Taylor is doing a karate-fighter gimmick, complete with nunchuks...the fans didn't seem to think too much of his chances here. While Taylor did get in a few good kicks, the size and power of LETTERMAAAAAN~! was too much for him...Letterman won with the pumphandle Michinoku Driver(now named the Endzone Spike) in 4:21.

Cal Stark(aka Chip Day) vs. Tommy Flagg of the Anti-Social Network(aka Christian Rose)(w/ August Marshall, aka Austin Blackburn): The video promo with the Anti-Social Network before the event was hilarious...the characters are really entertaining. THEY'RE UNDEFEATED IN EMPTY ARENA MATCHES~! Stark's character has been all over the map as he was a fan favorite against Letterman at the first show, a rulebreaker against Maverick at the second event, and back to being a fan favorite here. (On top of that, he'll definitely be in the rulebreaker position in his tournament match with Matthew Grundy at the next show.) Stark has a look that reminds me of former WWE tag team Deuce & Domino. Flagg distracted the referee so that Marshall could run in with a spear on Stark, but that only got Flagg a two-count. Stark fought back and delivered a buzzsaw kick, followed by a knee-to-back-of-head version of Seth Rollins' advanced curbstomp...that earned Stark the victory in 7:45, giving him momentum heading into his tournament matchup.

Jay Lutz(aka Gary Jay) vs. Dez Wellston(aka Mike Outlaw): I THINK that was the scheduled matchup, but we'll never know as The Underground(Adam Ryan & Jackie Lee Bosch) attacked Wellston as he made his entrance. Lutz dove off the top rope onto Ryan & Bosch for the save and the four men brawled until referees and General Manager Matt Jackson restored order. Jackson admitted that he hadn't been in the G.M. position for very long, but he felt like the proper way to handle the situation was to order an impromptu tag match (holla holla, playa!).

Dez Wellston & Jay Lutz vs. The Underground(Adam Ryan & Jackie Lee Bosch)(aka Danny Adams & Jake Parnell): With the split of The Viking War Party, I feel like Bosch/Parnell could have a breakout year in 2017. He's been in several big matches in recent months, particularly in IWA Mid-South where he's faced Sami Callihan and will be facing Michael Elgin this Thursday. It was a first-time teamup for Wellston and Lutz, to the best of my knowledge; The Underground are 1-1 in NWL competition. Ryan & Bosch seem to have trouble staying on the same page and their miscommunications have been costly. Lutz got the pinfall on Bosch after a running double-stomp to the back of the head in 7:20.

Intermission~! Official Ben Simon Concession Count(tm): Two Coca-Colas. Three dollars a pop (so to speak)? Eep.

Cue Buddy Shepherd...despite Skyler Beckett rejecting his mentorship on two previous occasions, he invited Skyler to the ring for one more chance to accept his proposal. Beckett gave it some thought and finally decided to accept The Buddy System into his life. Buddy proclaimed that "Buddy's coming into you!" and Beckett put on the T-shirt. #HALLELUJAH

On the big screen, Marti Belle interviewed Dominick Butler about his tournament match with Maverick. He knew he'd be an underdog, but he wanted to prove himself...though it seemed as though he still had the fairer gender on his mind.

Maverick(aka Moonshine Mantell) vs. Dominick Butler(aka Jayden Fenix), St. Louis Title Tournament: Both were fan favorites but Maverick was obviously positioned more strongly in the tournament...it was your standard battle of size/power against speed/agility. However, the match was nearly derailed in the early minutes as Maverick appeared to injure his ankle while executing a full nelson slam. Butler took the opportunity to target the bad leg, putting the highly-touted prospect's tournament hopes in doubt. I imagine that the ankle injury would have made it difficult for Maverick to deliver his Short Shot(Gory Bomb) finisher, so he finished with a discus lariat in 9:00; Maverick will face the winner of Dez Wellston vs. Adam Ryan on the 23rd.

"The Mile-High Magnum" Dak(ota) Draper vs. Jet Royal(w/ Jax Royal)(aka Sterling & Logan Riegel): Starting with the previous NWL Kansas City show, each region would feature a "showcase" match from the other side's roster; Maverick had defeated Christian Adonis in Kansas City. The Royal Blood duo complained about injuries suffered at the previous KC show(at the hands of Leonel & Marco Howlett and Rudy & Geno Mancini) and being forced to compete in St. Louis...for his part, Draper departed from his usual rulebreaking demeanor and said he had no interest in the city rivalry...he definitely preferred St. Louis to Kansas City, thus establishing himself as the fan favorite for the night. With the Royals being identical twin brothers, the only definite way to tell them apart is the names on their tights...however, that can easily be overlooked. As a result, the Royals switched places a few times during the match and a lot of fans didn't pick up on it(including myself). Late in the bout, Jax openly interfered and Draper fought off both men, leading to a moment where Draper hit his Mile-High Doctor Bomb on Jax and had to be told that Jax wasn't his official opponent. That allowed Jet to hit a low Buff Blockbuster and shooting star press for a CLOSE near-fall, but Draper was able to bounce back and finish the right Royal with the Mile-High Doctor Bomb in 10:08.

"Super Soul" Coco Rumble(aka Sugar Dunkerton) vs. "The Billion-Dollar Brother" Emmett DuBois(aka Dorian Victor), St. Louis Title Tournament: DuBois seemed to be FINALLY ready to compete...but as the referee made a move to do the standard pre-match check, DuBois' cramps acted up again. I'm honestly starting to wonder if he'll EVER wrestle...my theory is that match with Samoa Joe from ten years ago took a lot out of him. Accountant Clayton Fox(aka Matt Kenway) came out to check on DuBois and Matt Jackson said that if DuBois couldn't compete, then he was out of the tournament and Fox would take his place. DuBois suddenly seemed to feel a lot better, but Jackson told him to go to the dressing room area for his own safety...heh.

"Super Soul" Coco Rumble vs. Clayton Fox, St. Louis Title Tournament: Fox lasted a bit longer than I expected, especially against one of the top seeds in the tournament. Rumble finally put him out of his misery with the Krush Groove(Zigzag) in 5:04; he'll face the winner of Matthew Grundy vs. Cal Stark on the 23rd.

On the big screen, Marti Belle interviewed The Blood Brothers about the main event...

The Blood Brothers(Davey Gibson & Matthew Grundy)(aka Davey Vega & Mat Fitchett) vs. "The Bull City Boss" Cornell Douglass & Christian Adonis(w/ Carolina Grizelda Esmeralda Rodriguez)(aka Murder One & Elvis Aliaga w/ Lucy Mendez): This was a preview of another first-round tournament matchup on the 23rd between Gibson and Douglass. Douglass had a distinct size and power advantage over both opponents, but it was the first time he and Adonis had ever been a tag team. In that respect, the team experience and continuity of Gibson & Grundy made the difference...Gibson pinned Douglass in 14:47 after a double-stomp off the top rope. Going by normal wrestling logic, that would foreshadow a Douglass victory in the tournament...but nowadays(in wrestling or otherwise), logic rarely applies. With the win, The Blood Brothers are now 3-0 in NWL competition.

Post-show, myself and Ben Simon ventured to a nearby bar called The Whiskey Ring...I wasn't hungry but did have a Coca-Cola. Of course, our plot to take over St. Louis wrestling continued exactly as planned...BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Err...ahem.

I worked on Saturday night so I was unable to attend the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance show at the South Broadway Athletic Club; the Missouri Wrestling Revival MO State Title changed hands once again as "The" Ace Hawkins defeated Barackus thanks to a low blow. The feud between "Night Train/Gorgeous/Great One" Gary Jackson and "Da Bomb" Brian James continued, setting up a rare cage match at the March event.

However, my weekend was far from over...but that's another story for another time. Tune in next time...Same Pat-Time, Same Pat-Channel.

That's my special comment for this, the fifth wrestling show I've attended in the year 2017. Good night, good luck, and #yaywrestling.

WWE NXT
-Commentators: Tom Phillips, Nigel McGuinness, & "Showtime" Percy Watson.
-Sanity(Killian Dane & Alexander Wolfe)(w/ Eric Young & Nikki Cross) d. The Bollywood Boyz(Harv & Gurv Sihra) when Dane pinned Harv after the Ulster Plantation(electric chair Michinoku Driver) (2:33). Afterwards, Nikki got the microphone and demanded to get NXT Women's Champion Asuka Urai in the ring...then Eric Young told Tye Dillinger that he belonged with Sanity.
-Liv Morgan d. Billie Kay(w/ Peyton Royce) when she ran Billie into Peyton on the ring apron and got the pin with a bridging O'Connor Roll (3:41).
-Backstage: "The Perfect Ten" Tye Dillinger was interviewed about Eric Young's message...he said he simply lost to the numbers game at Takeover and would NOT be joining Sanity. He wanted to change the subject to his Royal Rumble appearance, but he was gang-attacked by the Sanity members and dragged out into the arena toward the ring area. Roderick Strong and "No Way" Jose Valenzuela ran out to even the odds and helped Dillinger clear the ring.
-Backstage: General Manager S. William Regal announced that Tyler Bate would defend the United Kingdom Title against Trent Seven on next week's show. At that moment, Billie & Peyton barged into the office to demand a match with Liv Morgan on next week's show. Regal booked the tag match: Billie & Peyton against Liv and a partner of her choosing. Billie & Peyton laughed at that prospect, saying that Liv had no friends...
-The Revival(Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder) d. Heavy Machinery(Otis Dozovic & Tucker Knight) when Dawson pinned Knight after a DDT (3:47). After the match, Dawson & Wilder talked about winning the NXT Tag Team Of The Year award...so the fans weren't ALL morons. They said that Do It Yourself(Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano) dropped the ball when they lost the NXT Tag Team Titles at Takeover, so they formally introduced themselves to new Tag Champs The Authors Of Pain(Akam Dhinsa & Rezar Selmani)(w/ Paul Ellering). That brought out The Authors and Ellering, convincing Dawson & Wilder to postpone the direct confrontation for the time being. The Authors made their exit, but Dawson & Wilder re-entered for a quick hit-and-run beatdown on the entrance stage.
-New NXT Champion Bobby Roode celebrated his title victory by enlightening the Full Sail masses...Shinsuke Nakamura ran roughshod over the NXT roster and beat everybody until he met Bobby Roode. It's no longer "We Are NXT" because now it's HIS NXT.
-Sanity(Eric Young, Killian Dane, & Alexander Wolfe)(w/ Nikki Cross) d. Roderick Strong, "No Way" Jose Valenzuela, & "The Perfect Ten" Tye Dillinger; Dain took out Strong with a cross-bodyblock and Young got the pinfall (joined in progress; 6:23 aired).
