Mad-Pro Wrestling presented "Never Again" on Sun. Feb. 11th in Chillicothe, Ohio at Cardo's Restaurant
The Show started off with the Director of Operations Josh Hayes announcing that a number of tonight’s competitors were un-able to make the show, including Dean Visk...once hearing this Matt Stryker & Neveah made their way to the ring thinking they were getting a "night off"; however Hayes informed Stryker that he would put his MPW Championship on the line tonight, then out of no where BJ Whitmer snuck into the ring from the out in the crowd and proceeded to get the better of Stryker, almost even locking in his patient finisher the "Wrist Clutch Exploder Suplex" until Stryker was able to elbow his way out of the move.
Sami Callihan vs. Flash Fury
Sami seemed to dominate Flash Fury in the beginning, using his size advantage in his favor, that was until Flash's quickness caught up with Sami and Flash starting laying into Callihan. In the end Sami's cheating ways were just too much for Flash, and Sami was able to get the victory by rolling Flash up and grabbing a handful of tights.
Lou Roberts vs. Cody Hawk
This was a classic "Rookie vs. Veteran" match as it seemed if though Cody Hawk had a counter for each of Lou Roberts' moves. In the end Hawk was just too much for the rookie to handle as Hawk hit the "muscle buster" which allowed Hawk to get the pin fall victory.
Carlton Kaz vs. Ryan Midnight vs. Chance Prophet(c)
This match was back and forth the entire time. No man could seem to get the advantage or the better of one of their opponents before the third participant would interject themselves in the action. In the end as Chance Prophet was locking in a sit-down submission, Ryan Midnight snuck up behind Prophet & rolled him up for the 3 count; thereby becoming the new MX Champion
The Princes of Portugual (JD Santo's & Vance Desmond) vs. T.J. Dalton & Lennox Lightfoot (formally known as Al B. Damm)
Both of these teams were new to MPW, and both tried to make a lasting impression. In the end T.J. Dalton & Lennox Lightfoot were just the better team on this night; as they were able to get the pin fall victory.
THE BRISCOES SHOW UP???
After the match T.J. Dalton announced that himself & Lennox Lightfoot would be entering the April 7th Tag Team Tournament to become the first ever MPW Tag Team Champions, even if they have to go threw the Briscoe Brothers...at this point "Gimme Back My Bullets", also recognized as The Briscoe Brothers theme song started to play...however instead of The Briscoe Brothers, Ed Crowza walked out and announced that he is the reason The Briscoe’s are coming to MPW, as they are his hired guns to destroy the entire MPW Tag Team division.
*MPW Heavyweight Championship*
BJ Whitmer vs. Matt Stryker w/ Neveah
BJ Whitmer had Matt Stryker scouted like there was no tomorrow, as no matter what Stryker threw at him, Whitmer was able to either counter it, or overcome it. Neveah even interjected herself in the match at one point to help Stryker escape from Whitmer’s "Wrist Clutch Exploder Suplex"....however Whitmer was quick to snatch Neveah and plant her with a kiss...this allowed Stryker to hit the "Stryker Driver", but that still wasn't enough to keep Whitmer down! Before Matt Stryker knew what had happened BJ Whitmer was able to get up and hit the "Wrist Clutch Exploder Suplex" and get the 1-2-3 to become the NEW MPW Heavyweight Champion!!!
*Tables, Ladders, & Chairs - Special Guest Ref. Ed Crowza*
the Mavericks vs. Irish Airborne
There are no words that could describe this match. These two teams have had an on-going feud for the past 9 months, and tonight it finally came to an end. Both teams used chairs, ladders, and many tables to their advantage, Ed Crowza might as well of been a 3rd opponent against Jake & Dave Crist, as he refused to make a regular count, and would make fast counts for the Mavericks. However even with Ed Crowza on their side, Irish Airborne was just too much for the Mavericks to handle. In the end both Dave & Jake(separately) had to "Double Stomp" Aaron Williams threw a table, then after Crowza counted 2, and was about to stop Jake Crist jumped on Crowza's hand to make it hit the mat for the 3 count. After the match Crowza tried reversing the end of the match saying that "since Irish Airborne put their hands on the ref, they were they by disqualified!", however the Director of Operations Josh Hayes then quickly showed to to reverse that saying that "Crowza's hand hit the mat 3 times, therefore STILL you're winners, The Irish Airborne".
MPW returns to Chillicothe, OH on Sat. April 7th when we present our Tag Team Tournament to crown the first ever MPW Tag Team Champions.
-This will be a 1 Night, 4 Team, Round Robin tournament based on points...depending on what the outcome of the finish is, teams will receive points (20 points for a Pin fall, 15 points for a Count out, 10 points for a DQ, 5 points for a Draw, & 0 points for a loss)...which ever team has the most points at the end of the night will become the first ever MPW Tag Team Champions!
