Montreal Indy Wrestling News: ISW! C*4! El Generico!

Happy New Year!

For a variety of reasons, it has been a while since I have updated the newsletter. In fact, somewhere I have a mammoth uncompleted discussion of the end of the International Wrestling Syndicate and our last show. Partly I never got around to completing it because of some health reasons (I am having cataract surgery in March so writing for any length of time on teh computer is a pain and a half.) partly because of some more personal issues, partly because I am a lazy procrastinating son-of-a-bitch, but mostly because finishing that report feels somehow like closing the coffin lid on the IWS and shoveling dirt on it.

(For those wondering, yes we are working on DVDs of the last two IWS shows. No it won’t be fast.)

But I have a bunch of news that I should talk about, so let’s be about it.

1. Inter-Species Wrestling Returns to Montreal!

We are back at Foufounes Electrique in Montreal! The show is called BONER JAM and it will be Sunday, March 27th doors open at 7PM, show starts sometime later. Ticket price to be determined..

I am pleased to say that in my capacity as your beloved (but generally powerless) Commissioner, I had a little something to do with the show happening. Not a lot, God knows, but since I generally have absolutely nothing to do with the shows happening, it was nice to contribute for a change.

And since a very little power goes to my head like my pregnant sister getting tipsy off O’Doul’s non-alcoholic beer, I feel the need to flex my power and make a few Commissioner style edicts:

To make this a proper YE OLD SCHOOL ISW show, ISW is booking as ring announcer the WORST RING ANNOUNCER IN THE HISTORY OF THE MULTIVERSE, namely… uh me.

Master of the anti-climax that’s me.

Also expect the usual gang of idiots to be at Foufs and if you want to see them more often convince everyone you know to pack Foufs to the rafters on March 27th.


2. El Generico Dark Match at TNA!

El Generico recently had a dark match at TNA.

On Tuesday, he wrestled against the Amazing Red and got a great reception from the fans. Reports are that the match went very well.

On Wednesday, he wrestled against T.J. Perkins (known in PWG as Puma). He was able to hit his top rope Brain-Buster for the win.

I will leave the ridiculous speculation to others, but TNA would be lucky to have him on their regular roster.


3. C*4 Triumph 2011 is this weekend!

From talking to the C*4 promoter, he is trying to recreate the old Marc the Grizzly booked Madness shows. It makes sense. Both promoters have a tendency to book a ton of great matches, so much so that it almost seems like too much of a good thing.

(I know that that sounds like an odd thing to say, but if the worst thing that you can say about a promotion is that they give fans too much for their money, you are starting to pick at nits that you need a microscope to find.)

The biggest difference between the old Madness shows and this C*4 show is that the old Madness shows had absolutely no story-lines. This C*4 show will present matches that you don’t need to have watched the promotion to understand, but if you did watch the promotion, the story background will give some extra enjoyment in each match.

The point that I am clumsily truing to make is that the Montreal wrestling show of the year is likely to happen this Saturday. Miss it at your own risk.

Here is the card with my comments:

Main Event#1
Three-Way Dance
C*4 Champion
“Player Dos” Stupefied
“Canadian Crazyhorse” Michael Elgin
Sonjay Dutt

Montreal crowds need to introduction to Stupefied, hands down the best high-flyer who wrestles regularly in Quebec and Ontario. Sonjay Dutt also needs no introduction. The hidden star of this match though is Michael Elgin. My favourite match of 2010 was a Michael Elgin match at C*4. He is a solid technical wrestler, he makes a great base for high-flyers like Stupefied and Dutt to bounce off of and when he hits people, he hits them like an 18-wheeler flattening Bambi.

Main Event#2
Special Challenge Grudge Match
“Mr. Wrestling” Kevin Steen & a mystery partner
Jimmy Jacobs &”Textbook” Tyson Dux

I have known Kevin Steen a long time. He is an arrogant prick, a conceited ass-hole and the most talented wrestler that I have ever seen. He has had run-ins in C*4 with both Jimmy Jacobs and Tyson Dux. I suspect that the reason that they hate him so much is that everything that they have to work to become, Kevin Steen just is – as naturally as breathing.

Philosophically, I wonder if Jacobs and Dux are bigger assholes than Steen because they have to force themselves to become assholes, while Steen just is an asshole. Realistically, I wonder who the hell Steen will get to be in his corner with El Generico out of town this weekend? But more importantly, I look forward to Steen kicking the asses of those pompous jack-asses and I hope he has enough help to do so.

Singles showdown
Dan Paysan

We are lucky that Dan has healed enough to be able to get back to active wrestling, but who knows how long that bum shoulder of Dan’s will last? We should absolutely take advantage by watching as many of his matches against good opponents as we can for as long as he lasts.Frightmare from CHIKARA should be a GREAT opponent for Dan.

Tag Team Showdown
C*4 Tag Team Champions
(“MVP” Michael Von Payton & “The Prince of Persia” Rahim Ali)
2. O
(Shane Matthews &”Jagged” Scott Parker)

Speaking of assholes, M.V.P. and Rahim Ali are 2/3 of the N.B.A. or Natural Born Assholes. They will be going up one of the best and most beloved tag teams in Montreal wrestling history. I, for one, am looking forward to it.

Singles Showdown
Player Uno
Jae Rukin

Player Uno needs no introduction. Jae Rukin is one of the best wrestlers that Montreal wrestling fans may have never heard of. That should change on Saturday.

Tag Team Showdown
The Wolfmun
(Twiggy & Beef Wellington)
The Colony
(Fire Ant & Green Ant)

Beef Wellington and Twiggy wrestling against two man-sized ants! What is not to love?

Grudge Match
“Ronin” Josh Alexander
“Psycho” Mike Rollins

Josh Alexander and Mike Rollins started as tag-team partners until Alexander betrayed Rollins and formed teh N.B.A. with M.V.P. and Rahim Ali. Rollins has been trying to get his hands on his former partner ever since. Montreal wrestling fans should love Psycho. He is just as deranged as they are.

Fatal Four-Way
Sexxxy Eddy
“The Rockstar” Jimmy Stone
Dasher Hatfield
“The Afterparty” Cecil Nyx

I haven’t really seen enough of Hatfield and Nyx to be able to prejudge this match, but any match with Sexxxy Eddy and Jimmy Stone is off to an excellent start.

Tag Team Showdown
Max Boyer & Lucky Sabiti
The Incredible Hunks
(Deeno & Cheeky)

Like Dan Paysan, we are lucky to have Max Boyer back to active wrestling. He and Lucky make a surprisingly effective team.

So that’s it, about four matches that have a serious chance to be remembered at the end of the year as the best matches that we have seen all year. The rest of the card is just terrifyingly solid and teh card as a whole risks being the best thing that we see in Montreal wrestling all damn year.

Naturally, I have tickets. They are $20. You can get them before the show by calling my cell 514.232.3873.

Hello AWFers… Happy 2011!

AWF is getting pumped up for another big year, and below are details to the upcoming New Years Revolution live pro-wrestling event for this Friday 21 January at Penrith Panthers, NSW. If you can forward on to all of your friends and family to raise awareness for the event that would be tremendous.

Gearing up and excited for an awesome season opener, so please come and support it live, so we can bring you more great shows in 2011!


The Australasian Wrestling Federation (AWF) enthusiastically returns to the state of the art Evan Theatre at Penrith Panthers to kick start the 2011 AWF Wrestling season with a massive night of live sports entertainment entitled “New Years Revolution”.

The event itself will be a special “This Is AWF Wrestling” TV Taping, with select bouts set for airing in 2011 on Aurora Community Channel on Foxtel/Austar Pay TV. This monumental event will showcase a tremendous amount of pro-wrestling excitement featuring over 2 hours of live pro-wrestling action suitable for the whole family. 9 bouts have been scheduled with the main theme of the evening seeing The Detonation Crew take on rivals The Multicultural Society in heated contests.

The last Panthers event on 27 August, 2010 saw an excited crowd enjoy a fantastic showing of AWF Wrestling, and saw the tensions between the two most powerful factions in AWF, “The Freakshow” and “The Detonation Crew” come to a head with Iron Jay Coles defeating Massive Q for the Australasian Championship.

The 21 January event will no doubt be aiming to top the last event for excitement and action, and will see the new war between The Detonation Crew and Multicultural Society explode in a series of three bouts.
In bout one, Tama Williams will defend his Commonwealth Championship against Max Comic, bout 2 The Masked Musa of Korea will face the returning from Japan TNT, and bout three will see Mad Turk Hussain try to capture the AWF Australasian Championship from Iron Jay Coles. Each bout will have a special stipulation added to heighten the stakes to make things even more unpredictable and intense. We could see hardcore action, a ladder match, Tables, No DQ, 2 out of 3 Falls or many other types of bouts. If the Detonation Crew wins two of the three bouts they will receive 1 minute in ring with seemingly corrupt referee Tony Kebab. Be at Panthers to find out what goes down!

Elsewhere on the card there will be a plethora of other exciting matches featuring the best wrestlers from around Australia including Blakestone, “Mint Condition” Mick Moretti, Young Lion’s Champion “Scientific” Robert Barnes and Elite Wrestling. Tag Team Champions Party Trix, Selene & Omega plus a host of others of Australia’s most exciting wrestlers.

“New Years Revolution” is sure to be a historic night of wrestling packed with surprises galore, so if you are looking for a fun time for the whole family, be sure to make it along and support the Australasian Wrestling Federation when it comes to the Panthers on 21 January for its next Television Taping episodes of “This Is AWF Wrestling”.
We advise to book early to avoid disappointment as this event will be highly anticipated and will be the hottest ticket in town.
