Juggalo Championship Wrestling Results/Referee-Cap
Kansas City, Kansas
May 29th 2010
Weedman Defeated Jeremy Wyatt
JCW Title Match
Pondo Defeated The Copycat
JCW Tag Team Title Match
Thomaselli brothers vs. Superstar Steve and Mark Sterling
Corporal Robinson W/ Violent JJ defeated Sir Bradley Charles
The Memorial Hall in Kansas City is no stranger to pro wrestling action, but today they would experience Juggalo Championship Wrestling for the first time, and the juggalos lined up for hours in advance would not be disappointed.
Once sheltered from the unforgiving Kansas sun, the ninja’s in attendance were hype for the show to begin and chanted, whooped, and got hype as they awaited our opening announcement from Legs Diamond. Jeremy Wyatt a young grappler out of Saint Louis entered the ring first and did not seem too impressed with the crowd, and I must say the feeling was mutual. DJ Clay dropped the Weedman’s theme and the crowd erupted in anticipation of this fan favorite entering the ringside area. Jeremy complained to Senior Official Kevin Gill about the presence of a lit blunt of chronic in the ring, but it’s perfectly legal in JCW! Weedman dominated this young competitor and the crowd was 200% behind the Weedman as he kicked, flipped, and smoked his way to victory! Finally finishing off his opponent with his finishing move “Packing The Bowl”. Another impressive victory for The Weedman!
Madman Pondo the JCW Heavyweight Champion was introduced and he was accompanied to the ring by his trademark stop sign. He cut a promo that incited the crowd and Pondo was showered in drinks, Ice, garbage, coins, and whatever debris people could get their hands on. Pondo was facing a new challenger today for the title. He was introduced as being from Venice Beach California, weighing in at 305 pounds. And when “Real American” blared through the P.A. system the crowd erupted and warmly welcomed the yellow clad “Copy Cat” as he cupped his ear to see which side was cheering the loudest for him and rewarded fans with a pose down. Pondo loves taking short cuts in his personal and professional life, not to mention his diet, so it was right to the eyes of the Copy Cat, which got Pondo a warning from Senior Official Kevin Gill. Pondo went on to choke and drag his opponent’s eyes across the top rope, blinding him and leaving him open to a deadly Death Valley driver. Pondo bailed out of the ring to find his trusty sledgehammer and cinderblock combo but to his surprise when he returned to the ring the Copycat stopped selling his punches! The Copycat “Hulked Up” finally pointing at Pondo and then unleashing a series of tremendous right hands and firing Pondo into the ropes and hitting him with the big boot! The crowd erupted as the Copycat bounced off the ropes and dropped the leg on Pondo, as surely we would see an end to Pondo’s title reign here. But sadly, Pondo rolled out of the way went back on the attack and smashed a cinderblock over the groin of The Copycat, and as we’ve learned when momentum is on his side, you can’t stop Pondo! One mighty stop sign swing put away the challenger for the 3 count and the Copycat-a-maniacs were visibly distraught.
JCW Tag Team Title Match time as the hated Thomaselli Brothers came to the ring and demanded some competition! “Superstar” Steve and Mark Sterling answered the call. They rushed to the ring and started mixing it up with the Thomaselli brothers during the pre-match intro and while Superstar Steve seemed to have some solid wrestling ability; Mark Sterling was clearly the weak link in the team. The Thomasellis simply out-wrestled these two every step of the way, and if Sterling had spent as much time preparing for the match as he did hanging photos of himself around the building, perhaps the outcome could have been different and the reign of the Vito and Pauly could have been ended in Kansas. Instead Pauly hit a 450 splash on Sterling, and although he could have pinned him, he and his brother tied him to the tree of woe, and delivered the double Van Terminator dropkicks for the easy 3 count. Post match saw The Thomasellis put Sterling in his place with a shot to the solar plexus, which took him off his feet, and a belt shot to the face to send a message as they head off to their next title defense in Denver Colorado.
Sir Bradley Charles entered first and was not received warmly by the juggalos in attendance, as they wanted to see Bradley’s opponent. Led to the ring by The Young Thug Violent JJ, the youngest manager in pro wrestling, Corporal Robinson the square smoking juggalo everyman who has been on a path of destruction since losing the belt to Madman Pondo. Violent JJ and Corp soaked in cheers, chants and bathed in the light of a thousand flashbulbs, as people were hype to see the man they still consider the champ, and his wildly popular manager. Sir Bradley Charles has a growing reputation as a graduate of Lance Storm’s academy and it would be a battle of the technical wrestling that Lance Storm specializes in and the raw fury of the former champ. Corp seemed surprised by the ability and brass balls of his opponent, as Bradley jumped Robinson as he got some final words of guidance from his manager. Sir Bradley beat him down, and nailed him with a power slam! With the crowd chanting for Corp to do damage to his opponent, Robinson fed off the cheers and fired back with his trademark Lottery Punches, a series of devastating suplexes, and a low down! Corp was now in control and hit a devastating super kick that nearly drove the nose of Bradley directly into his brain. As Corporal stood over his fallen opponent, he called for the Boot Camp and then nailed a picture perfect execution. However, based on the pre-match attack, instead of pinning his opponent he called for young Violent JJ to enter the ring! JJ effortlessly climbed to the second rope, and then looking around for approval, climbed to the top rope and stood perched like a proud eagle, gave the Jimmy Snuka “I Love You” sign with his hands, and leapt like a gazelle from the top rope knocking the wind out of his opponents chest, with a Superfly Splash and getting the 3 count!!!!
Post Match Celebration was huge, and left everyone looking forward to Robinson-Pondo rematch In Denver May 31st
See you next time!

So far things have been progessing nicely for the TWA and this weekend is a big deal for us w/ the back to back shows and the crowning of tag champs. If you hate the fact that real tag teams are a thing of the past, teams like the Road Warriors, the Midnight Express, the Rock and Roll Express, the Britsh Bulldogs and the Hart Foundation, then you have to come see the June 6th Tag Team Tournament. These guys are real tag team speclialists. Oh, by the way, we will also have one of the most legendary teams of the past seeing non-tournament action, reminding people of the tag team heyday, Ax and Smash- DEMOLITION!!!
