RESULTS & 2 TITLE CHANGES : Power Trip Wrestling’s 4th Birthday Show, Sat 12th March, Icknield High School, Luton.

What a night! Wild, crazy, even more of the infamous and charismatic PTW spirit than ever before; and some serious shocks, surprises, swerves,…and of course, Snugglemuffins!

* The show kicked off with the youngest general manager in professional wrestling (at 11 years old), ‘The Future of PTW’ Drewy Staniforth, starting the show on the microphone at what is his own high school. This was the beginning of what was a very assured and confident beginning to his tenure as PTW’s GM, but typically, he was interrupted by the ‘Disco Sirens’, and the always arrogant P.T. Player accompanied by his tag team partner and co PTW World Tag Team Champion Tommy Stevens.

An argument between P.T. and Drewy ensued, and P.T. called his daughter out to ringside, and said that ‘at least she loves her Daddy, and she’s a daddy’s girl’, at which point she referred to P.T as ‘a nasty daddy who is picking on her brother’, which caused quite a tantrum from one P.T. Player. He demanded to know what Drewy had in store for him and Tommy on the night, and was told PTW Hawex Academy rookies Arashi & Steven Devine, which caused hilarity from the tag team champions, who refused point blank to take their opponents seriously. P.T said that if he and Tommy somehow lost to the ‘rookie kids’, he would take Drewy down to the local pub in the next road and buy him a coke.

* G ‘The Ghetto Superstar’ defeated ‘Mr Clean’ Anton Green. A quality back and forth opening match, which all enjoyed, and was contested very cleanly with full respect for the rules.

* Lewy Paradise defeated Chris Hart, after interference from PTW World Tag Team Champions P.T. Player and Tommy Stevens. Who then shockingly proceeded to beat both Paradise and Hart up around ringside, with some brutal kicks, and Paradise being thrown head first into the corner post by Player. One notable point is the intense personal issues (that are very out of character for Power Trip Wrestling’s very much PG rated family show), on You Tube and Facebook, between Chris Hart and P.T. Player; and the exclamation point on that was certainly put there, when Chris Hart lay pretty much unconscious on the ringside floor; and P.T., in what he later termed as ‘That’s how us Luton boys roll’, coldbloodedly stamped on Hart’s head. This situation, once more, is very below PTW’s sense of decency, and we are hoping that PTW General Manager Drewy, or promoter Hannah; will call an end to what is now becoming a situation that is of serious concern to many at PTW. An official ruling soon on this, we hope to have.

* In an ‘Opportunity Knocks’ Rumble, Mason Storm out lasted all other competitors to become the first ever PTW Internet Champion. We congratulate Mr Storm at the PTW Office, for a very hard fought victory, and his honour of becoming the first holder of the title belt.

* PTW World Tag Team Champions P.T. Player & Tommy Stevens defeated Arashi & Steven Devine. With deafening chants of ‘snugglemuffin’ from the very start, the odd sight of P.T. Player in full wrestling gear was accompanied by a whining voice that he was going to leave and “…and…and…I’m going to…I’m going to tell my mum….MUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”, as he shouted to his mother at the merchandise table; begging her to make them stop chanting the nickname that he has gained over the months and truly hates with a passion. The match was controlled by the champions, even seeing P.T. calculatedly ddt’ing Devine; but the main work was done by Tommy Stevens, as Player was clearly picking his moments cleverly to involve himself. A running powerbomb from Stevens, then saw a tag that shocked P.T., but he clearly realised his brother was letting him take the glory; and Player happily took the pinfall win at ringside; and then the champions began to beat down the young rookies further, and once more showing their vicious, uncaring streak.

PTW GM Drewy Staniforth took the microphone, annoyed, and said that he was going to make them wrestle again, much to some serious complaints, especially from Player. And their opponents, unscheduled, would be G & Del Rico. G came out alone, said that Del Rico was injured from the rumble, and he promised Drewy and Victoria, he would ‘give this his best shot out of respect to them’. He was jumped two on one in the ring, and Stevens and G took the fight to the outside as P.T. Player watched amused from the middle of the ring. The shock came, when Del Rico sneaked to ringside, caught P.T. Player with a very surprise roll up from behind; and we had NEW PTW World Tag Team Champions, G & Del Rico, who had a good giggle with the fans on the microphone how they’d outsmarted their arrogant opponents and taken their belts.

A far, far bigger shock perhaps, came when Stevens and Player were nose to nose at ringside, blaming each other for the loss. Stevens in particular was far more angry, and amazingly, the career bad guy was being encouraged by the crowd to hit his partner, and they cheered his name out loud. P.T. looked devastated, and wandered near to the stage; seemingly heartbroken to have lost the title, and unable to raise himself truly to fight Tommy Stevens. On the microphone, Tommy offered to take P.T out to the parking lot to fight him, and said that he would in fact do so, if he didn’t win the PTW World Title in the main event. A low class incident followed, as P.T Player blamed the PTW General Manager Drewy Staniforth for the incident, and disgustingly, grabbed the dolly from the arms of Victoria, made her cry, and threw it at PTW’s promoter Hannah, in what we gather was some kind of very personal reference that we aren’t able to repeat here; and he demanded that she make the main event triple threat PTW World Title match a no disqualification match; which she subsequently did.

* PTW 5 Star Champion Kevin Carter defeated Bagheera, in an action packed match, that the crowd were very into; and for them, they were very happy when PTW’s perennial underdog hero, Kevin Carter; retained his title once more.

* In another match that had the crowd gripped, but in a very different way, the as seen on national television Sean Midnight and Tracey Kilby, defeated newcomer to PTW, Dow Jones. There were chants of ‘Willy Wonka’, due to Jones’s rather bizarre ring attire; and also a dance off, that simply has to be seen to be believed; and footage of which (and the rest of the show) will be online very soon on You Tube. But, in the end, the as always very popular Sean Midnight, won the match.

* In a ten minute challenge (most decisions would win, from that time period), the tag team partners of Nemesis, Dani Graves and Prodigy; went to a 1-1 time limit draw. The crowd begged for five more minutes, and this was granted by PTW’s GM Drewy. These five more minutes, still saw no decisive winner; and in a ‘only in PTW’ moment, the crowd once more chanted for five further additional minutes; which wasn’t granted, but a rematch with no time limit was promised for a future show by Drewy, which the crowd approved of.

* In the main event, the PTW World Title changed hands, and a serious blow to the entire structure of PTW was launched. Tommy Stevens sent P.T Player straight to the back, within seconds of him going to ringside, and P.T. sulked away as the crowd sang ‘na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye’. The mood dropped to dark, as former PTW World Champion Mayhem made a shock return, and his presence set the tone for a strong main event. Then the newly turned good PTW World Champion Snare came to ringside, the this no disqualification match began, including weapons like a lollypop lady’s stick, and other rather bizarre to say the least instruments of violence! One thing reasonably unnoticed at this point, was PTW World Tag Team Champions G & Del Rico, watching from the crowd. They took a quiet wander to ringside, and kept themselves to themselves; until the moment was right….and then they threw the entire deck of cards from the PTW table, by interfering, taking out Snare with no view of the incident from the referee….and the pinfall…1-2-3….and Tommy Stevens was the NEW PTW World Champion.

A further twist came when P.T Player came back to ringside, laughing out loud that ‘you can call me a snugglemuffin, but you can call me a freaking genius too’, as he smugly told the crowd that the whole situation throughout the show was a complete set up by The Untouchables, to get a hold of the PTW World Title. He continued to mock the crowd patronisingly, by asking them if they ‘really thought they could come between him and his best friend, his brother, from a somewhat different mother, who he loves like no other’ Tommy Stevens, and The Untouchables stood on the stage mocking everybody, including Snare who was alone in the ring. P.T demanded that his boys go back down and attack Snare in the ring, as Drewy the PTW GM said that his dad ‘wasn’t at all clever, and that the main event of the next show would be an eight man tag team match, with Snare, Mayhem, and the team of Nemesis, against Tommy Stevens, G, Del Rico, and Bagheera’. At which point, Nemesis ran down to ringside, and an eight man chaotic brawl rang out to finish the show, which was eventually cleared up, and the final words went to a suddenly musical feeling P.T Player and Tommy Stevens, who mockingly stood on the stage posing, with the following song known from many football matches…..

‘Come and have a go, if you think you’re hard enough’. And off they arrogantly strolled backstage, as Drewy Staniforth thanked the fans for coming out to the show, supporting a great cause, and that PTW would be back at the venue once more very soon for another show.

And that’s the tale of PTW’s 4th Birthday Show. New PTW World Tag Team Champions, in G and Del Rico. A new PTW World Champion in Tommy Stevens. The first ever PTW Internet Champion in Mason Storm. And as ever, the centre of controversy personified, ‘The Loudest Player In The Game’ P.T. Player; playing puppets and strings with people and their emotions; to get his own twisted way.

We’ll be back with news of PTW’s next show soon. But this heartfelt statement came from the PTW Office today, that we feel duty bound to share with you.

“We weren’t meant to make four years old. We’ve had jealousy, bitterness, and all kinds of cheap tactics over the years that we’ve been subjected to by other promotions and more. We’re the odd one out in this whole business, we don’t live by your rules, and yet we dare you to find a wrestling promotion at and around our level who do more charity work than we do. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank the fans, we thank the wrestling websites, local newspapers, national television stations we have been featured on, we thank everyone of you sincerely. And to the boys in our locker room, for their dedication and backing up of the PTW Family spirit. We are the reality television of professional wrestling, where you truly never know what is going to happen next. And we’re Power Trip Wrestling…..AND WE LOVE YOU TOO!”.
