APWA Results for Moonstruck Madness at TALA in Weston, WV
June 2nd, 2012
Amos Burke and Don West welcomed the crowd to the event and got things under way.

2. Non-Title Match. APWA Hardcore Cup of the World Holder wrestled Irish Jack to a double count out.
… 3. APWA World Tag Team Champions, New Tradition, The Stro and “The Natural” Chase Stevens w/ Justn Kace and Kenny Young defeated Teddy and Eddy.
4. For a shot at the Super Jr. Championship on June 23rd, Sonjay Dutt defeated Johnny Forget About it after Justn Kace caused a major distraction. Johnny Forget about it told Kace he had a couple bro’s otherwise known as Robby T and Robbie E and they were gunning for the tag team gold on June 30th in Wston, WV.
5. The Stro w/ Justn Kace placed an open challenge for the APWA American Championship, Billy Gun would accept and win the APWA American Championship. After the match Kace complained that the match wasn’t sanctioned by the Board of Directors. Don West came out to get to the bottom of the situation when Stro and Kace would try to make an example out of Don but Billy Gunn was there for the save. He walked away with the American Championship a long side Don West. Don said the board would vote about the match and there would be a decision made before the end of the night.
6. Remix Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion, Michael Facade defeated Jason Gory in his APWA wrestling debut.
7. “The Black Superman” ONYX w/ Amber Lea West defeated Chance Prophet to retain the APWA World Heavyweight Championship. Following the match Stro and Kace made their way to the ring a long side Kenny. They would get ONYX in the corner and Kenny did the right thing and hit Justn Kace siding back with his brother. However why this was going on Amos Burke came out with APWA American Championship and didn’t look happy. Don West announced the Board came to a decision, Amos informed Don that the title would have to go back to The Stro due to the match not being sanctioned by the board. Stro and Billy Gunn would be set up for June 30th, while Stro would attack Don West as ONYX and Chance Prophet and Kenny Young then ran Stro and Kace off. Don West fined Stro 10,000 dollars the same as York had to pay for laying his hands on the owner. Kace said he’d pay it that he just better make sure Billy Gunn shows on the 30th when Stro is better prepared. Prophet and ONYX shook hands had their hands raised and then agreed to do the match again in the future.
