Victory Commonwealth Wrestling
The Legendary El Mocambo (464 Spadina ave.)
Singles Match: Odjic Thundercloud pinned Moondog Duke (w/ Saki San) by Top Rope Moonsault
Singles Match: Goliath Ayala pinned "Wild" Buck Gunderson after a shot with brass knuckles behind the referees back
Tag Team Match: "The Royal Guards" Prince Said Hussein and The Butcher of Khartoum (w/ Mysterion) pinned "The Dukes of Danger" Cousin Eddie and Uncle Eddie when Mysterion snuck in a shot of some sort of spray into the eyes of Uncle Eddy
After intermission it was revealed that the Main Event Battle Royale would be instead a Commonwealth Rumble in which 2 of the 20 competitors would start the match and a new one would enter the ring every 60 seconds. Eliminations over the top rope with both feet touching the floor until 1 man remains who will be crowned The Commonwealth Openweight Champion.
Singles Match: Colin Douglas pinned Buddy Boone with a Small Package after Buddy missed his Top Rope "Wheat Sheaf" Leg Drop
Singles Match: "Remarkable" Rex Atkins made "The Student" Daniel Parker (w/ his trainer "Dodger" Roger Dodge) submit with an Indian Deathlock
The Commonwealth Rumble:
The match started with "The Student" Daniel Parker who was still feeling the effects of his match with Rex Atkins as the Number 1 Entrant. Entrant number 2 was Goliath Ayala. As wrestlers made their way in and out of the ring (including Stryker and Bradley who eliminated each other at once furthering their rivalry), both Ayala and Parker endured until the final entrant appeared.
This last wrestler was a mysterious masked monster! "The Executioner"! He immediately made a serious impact by eliminating more wrestlers than any other entrant and in a fast and furious succession. These wrestlers were: Odjic Thundercloud, "The Student" Daniel Parker, and "Wild" Buck Gunderson who he heaved onto the previous men on the outside with a Gorilla Press Slam! With a mighty Clothesline he then sent "Remarkable" Rex Atkins to the floor. This left just 5 men in the ring.
As The Executioner brooded over his eliminated prey on the outside, Ayala schemed in a corner and Mysterion's Royal Guards who successfully eliminated many others in tandem immediately targeted Colin Douglas. But the veteran Colin was ready for their plan and was able to turn the tables as he eliminated both Guards in a remarkable reversal.
With the remaining 3 men staring each other down in the ring Mysterion was beside himself on the outside due to his men being out of the title picture. The Mentalist was eager for revenge. He produced a briefcase and offered the thousands of dollars inside it to either The Executioner and Ayala, but only if they first made Douglas pay. The two accepted Mysterion's deal.
Ayala's brass knuckles that secured his win against Gunderson earlier now came into play again as he and The Executioner beat Douglas to a bloody pulp. The Executioner finally grabbed Douglas who stood (barely) on the outside by the throat. But before he could send Colin to his doom on the floor, Ayala seized the opportunity to be the man who would not only get the Gold but also Mysterion's cash. Ayala shoved The Executioner to the outside with the help of Douglas.
Despite his battered and bloody state, Colin Douglas was able to overcome the odds and toss Ayala over the top rope to the outside.
Winner and the first ever Victory Commonwealth Wrestling Openweight Champion: Colin Douglas
