Changes were abound at NWA New York’s February Fallout 2010. New champions emerged, chaos ensued adding to an already unclear tag team title picture, and one star announced he was making his last stand. All of this should make for an exciting and interesting show this Saturday as NWA New York returns to the German House in Rochester, New York for Anniversary Anarchy VI. And this might not be the NWA New York’s biggest show of the year! But we’ll get into that a little bit later. First things first.

NWA New York Anniversary Anarchy IV
German House
315 Gregory Street
Rochester, NY 14620
Doors Open: 5:30 PM
Belltime: 6:00 PM
Tickets: $12 Presale
$15 At The Door

Main Event
NWA New York Heavyweight Title Triple Threat Match
“The Bull of Black Mountain” Gabe Saint (c) vs. Pepper Parks vs. Danny Doring
The Bull of Black Mountain reached the top of the mountain in NWA New York when he FINALLY became Heavyweight Champion at February Fallout in the three stages of hell match against then-champion Pepper Parks. The champion’s celebration will be short-lived as he makes his first title defense in a triple threat match against the former champion Parks and another former NWA-NY Champion, the returning Danny Doring. Doring missed February Fallout due to a major snowstorm and travel complications, but the “Danaconda” has vowed to return to Rochester with a vengeance. The “All-Time of Great of Upstate” hopes the third time will be the charm as he looks to become a three-time Heavyweight Champion. Distraught and disappointed by the loss, Pepper Parks hopes to rebound and regain the title he worked so hard for and held for almost six months and with talent and never-say-die attitude and the fans firmly behind him, Pepper could hold the gold once again. Unfortunately, both challengers will have to go through the new champion to do so and after six years fighting, scratching, and clawing his way to the top, Gabe Saint is not going to give up his crown without a fight and The Bull will do whatever it takes to retain the gold.

Submission Match
“Fabulous” John McChesney vs. “The Havana Pitbull” Ricky Reyes

To say that these stars don’t like each other would be an understatement. For a little over two years now, the Fabulous one and The Havana Pitbull having been feuding in NWA New York with seemingly no end in sight. The two renewed their rivalry at Corporate Holiday when McChesney pinned Reyes with a quick rollup in a three-way involving Bobby Fish. Suffice to say the loss has not sit well with Ricky Reyes. Calling the loss a “fluke” and “dumb luck”, Reyes looks to gain a measure of revenge in his type of match, a submission match. Reyes is a master of submission wrestling with his signature move being the dragon sleeper which has beaten and choked McChesney out in the past. But “Big League” says he has a few tricks up his sleeve and looks to pull them out against the stiff, hard-hitting submission specialist.

Tag Team #1 Contender’s Pole Match
CloudLee vs. The Caribbean Connection

As if things were chaotic enough in the NWA New York tag team title picture, along comes CloudLee to make things even more confusing. It was at February Fallout where The Caribbean Connection challenged Triple X & Hellcat for the tag team titles in a tables match, This was back-and-forth battle that had the soldout crowd on its feet until CloudLee got involved and put both teams through tables. The match was ruled a no-contest and the fans were not happy with the actions of “Big Rig” Brodie Lee and “Little Rig” Cloudy. NWA New York owner Chip Stetson, who made this match back in December at Corporate Holiday, was the most upset over these actions and has been determined to make things right. So at Anniversary Anarchy VI, Stetson has made a #1 contender’s match with CloudLee facing the The Caribbean Connection in a pole match with the winners getting a shot at the NWA New York tag team titles. And with the momentum and teamwork Coconut Jones and Maximo Suave have shown the last few months, Brodie & Cloudy better not them lightly.

Rochester Rumble
30-man Over The Top Rope Battle Royal
Groups of 5 at a time every 5 minutes, Winner receives a shot at any NWA New York title of his choosing

For the first time in NWA New York history, The Rochester Rumble will take place at Anniversary Anarchy. Past winners of the Rochester Rumble have gone on to capture gold after winning the Rumble, making this an important match for EVERY wrestler on the NWA New York roster. With so much at stake and with several wrestlers looking to make an impact at NWA-NY’s biggest show of the year, there’s no telling WHAT will happen or WHO will win?

“Chip’s Choice” First Blood Match (Non-Title Match)

NWA New York Tag Team Champions Triple X & Hellcat vs. A Tag Team of NWA New York Owner Chip Stetson’s Choosing
Despite their tables match being ruled a no-contest, Triple X & “The Minister of Pain” Hellcat escaped with the NWA New York Tag Team titles in their possessions. And with the company’s biggest show of the year coming up, the tag champs feel they the fans don’t deserve to see the best tag team in Western New York defend the gold and have refused to defend their titles at Anniversary Anarchy. Hearing of these news, Owner Chip Stetson was incensed with the champions’ decree and their underhanded tactics over the past few months. Intent to keep the wily veterans guessing and to teach them a lesson, Stetson has declared Triple X & Hellcat will not have to defend their titles, but they WILL be wrestling at Anniversary Anarchy VI in a First Blood Match against a mystery tag team of the NWA-NY owner’s choosing. And with all the stroke and friends that Stetson has and all the enemies the champions have made over the years, there’s no telling who Stetson who choose to face the tag champs. One thing is for certain: Whomever Triple X & Hellcat face at Anniversary Anarchy VI will be out for blood.

NWA-NY No Limits Title Match
Spazz (c) vs. “The Montgomery Madman” Mo Mantha

From stepping stone to champion. That’s the leap Spazz made when he won the No Limits Title at February Fallout when he pinned Evan McCloud in a four corners match involving Dicky Harter and then-champion “Dastardly” Dewey Doring. After the match, Dewey raised the new champion’s hand in victory in a show of respect, which was only a ruse to set Spazz up as he laid him out with the No Limits Title and attacked Spazz’s beloved Pickachu. Despite winning his first singles title, the post-match attack has not sit well with the lovable walking psycho and has been dying to take out his frustrations on anyone who steps in his path. Well that someone will be former No Limits Champion Mo Mantha. “The Montgomery Madman” is determined to win back the gold and says that’s it time for a “real” wrestler and a “real” champion to be represented once again in NWA New York. So will Mo Mantha make good on his word or will be the first footnote in Spazz’s new title reign?

Dewey vs. Rob “Just 2” Sweet

Well apparently the fun and games are over for Dewey in NWA New York. The former No Limits Champion attacked Spazz after losing his title and the Man of 1000 Gimmicks says he’s tired of pandering to the fans and from now on he’s only looking out for himself and wants to be taken more seriously by the fans and wrestlers alike. One wrestler that has and will be taking Dewey seriously is Rob “Just 2” Sweet. Sweet is on a roll winning at the last two NWA-NY shows and looking to keep the momentum going. Sweet has heard about Dewey’s actions has not taken too kindly to Dewey’s recent attitude change and running down the fans that have supported him over the last year. Two of Upstate New York’s young guns go one-on-on to see which star is the future of NWA New York.

Dustytaker’s Last Stand
The Dustytaker vs. Brodie Lee

So after an illustrious career of refereeing and wrestling throughout upstate New York over 20 years, The Dustytaker is calling it a career. The Dustytaker made the announcement at February Fallout after surviving a 3-on-1 beatdown at the hands of The Young And The Wrestlers. Dustytaker went on to say he wasn’t sure who’ll he would be facing, after which a “Brodie” chant started from the crowd. It was almost three years when “Big Rig” Brodie Lee beat The Dustytaker to a bloody pulp. The Dustytaker hasn’t forgotten about that night and The Dead Man Reffin’ says that Anniversary Anarchy and his final match is the perfect opportunity for payback. The Big Rig, however, says that history will repeat itself and unlike the failed attempts of many other stars, HE will be the one to finally put The Dustytaker to rest. So will The Big Rig run over The Dustytaker and finally put him to rest or has Brodie Lee made a grave mistake?

All this plus Jason Atlas gets inducted into the Rochester Wrestling Hall of Fame, An Update on NWA New York’s Continuing The Tradition show in June, and much, much more at NWA New York’s Anniversary Anarchy VI. Don’t miss it.
