RESULTS & ROUND UP: Power Trip Wrestling, Sat 7th May 2011, “Anything You Can Do – We Can Do LOUDER”, Luton, Bedfordshire

Once more, the crazy world of ‘Professional Wrestling’s Answer To Reality Television’ (otherwise known as Power Trip Wrestling!), brought another show to their hometown of Luton; and another show where questions were answered, and answers brought forth more questions.

* The start of the show saw PTW’s constant changes and progression under promoter Hannah’s reign, take another twist, as the ring on the night was a six sided ring. We are informed here at the PTW Office, that PTW will be using this ring on a much more regular basis. ‘The Future of PTW’, PTW General Manager Drewy Staniforth & Hannah, came out to cheers, to welcome everyone to the show, and then as expected, the ego driven P.T. Player came to ringside with his PA, Princess Sophie. An argument entailed, and it has to be said that it was an argument that Hannah was winning, and the outcome was that P.T’s group ‘The Untouchables’ had injured Bagheera on the last show, and so Hannah had brought in international star Jonny Storm to counteract this; and that PTW World Champion ‘Teetotal’ Thomas Stevens would have to defend the title not once, but twice, and the first time would be in the opening match against Storm. P.T. Player had a lot to say about this, but chose to accept the situation, and thus began what would eventually become perhaps the biggest story of the evening…..

* PTW World Champion Thomas Stevens w/P.T. Player defeated Jonny Storm, to retain the title. Interference from P.T., and a strange level of tension between he and the champion, made this an even more curious affair than it already was. Player’s attempts at distraction, did lead to Thomas Stevens retaining the PTW World Title, but it also saw P.T. eat a punch, and a 619, from Jonny Storm, who rightfully felt he should have become the PTW World Champion on the night.

* In a match that left off from their previous high flying escapades and high risk action in Houghton Regis last month, Jason Skye defeated Josh Wall, in a match that had the fans jaw’s hitting the floor at the chances both men were willing to take physically in order to come out with the victory.

* In what PTW General Manager Drewy Staniforth said, would earn the victor a PTW Internet Title shot, Gabriel Myers won a ten man battle royal match, to do just that, and earn that right in the future.

* In a women’s match, Jordan E defeated Tiffany Wantsmore.

* In his PTW debut, Psycho Steve defeated former PTW World Tag Team Champion Mark Cross.

* In what was considered the ‘match of the night’, PTW World Tag Team Champions G & Del Rico w/P.T. Player & Princess Sophie defeated ‘Northern Impact’ – Lewy Paradise & Chris Hart w/PTW Promoter, Hannah. This was a wild no disqualification affair, which saw baking trays and kendo sticks come into the field of battle, and there were some vicious shots traded between all. P.T. Player was ducking and diving, and picking his shots, with a baking tray in hand, and despite Hannah’s constant attempts to physically chase him and stop him from interfering in the match up, on more than one occasion, he attacked both Paradise & Hart (but especially Hart), from behind, or when they literally could not defend themselves. One notable moment saw a disgusting blow with a wildly swung baking tray, from P.T., to the head of Chris Hart. In the end, it led to G & Del Rico’s taking the win and retaining the title; but by no means was the win convincing, and by no way at all, is this feud over. If anything, the issues between P.T Player and Chris Hart, guarantee it’s continuation for as long as all sides want it to.

* In the main event of the evening, PTW World Champion Thomas Stevens w/P.T. Player, defeated Tommy Martins. Clearly there were and are severe issues between Stevens, and Player, which has come has a shock to all at PTW, when considering that the two have always referred to their bond being as tight as brothers. All of this led to Tommy Stevens demanding P.T. Player stayed out of the match, and P.T. sat front row ringside with a pout on that had to be seen to be believed. A back, forth, match up, saw Thomas Stevens retain the title again, this time with his finisher, the MK Ultra, onto Tommy Martins; who ended the evening being helped to the back, and his neck being medically assessed due to the severity of the blow to it.

But then came the bang. Hannah took hold of the PTW World Title, and was looking to hand it to Thomas Stevens, as P.T. Player said he could make his choice there and then, stand by his brother, or accept her handing him the title, and he could “sell out 11 years of friendship and brotherhood”. Stevens snapped, and a very serious verbal tirade between the two followed, as he took the title belt from Hannah, and stood back and laughed as Hannah literally slapped P.T Player so hard, they heard it backstage, and pretty much all around the entire building. Yes, it was that hard! A literally stunned P.T.clearly was taken aback, through his best friend/brother turning to the good side of the company, and from the shock of such a heavy slap. Hannah suggested, as her and Player had words, that P.T. turned around, and behind him were Chris Hart, and Lewy Paradise, at which point P.T. did the most sensible thing he could do, and literally ran out of the venue, and into the car park; leaving the fans to celebrate that Hannah had made a huge dent into ‘The Untouchables’ by taking their centre piece away, the PTW World Champion, ‘Teetotal’ Thomas Stevens.

* And in breaking news, we have obtained the link to THIS footage, which sees an unapproved by Power Trip Wrestling, attack, on ‘Dynamite’ Chris Hart, in the car park, and it really doesn’t take a genius to guess who by, does it? We apologise for the violent content of this video, but feel much as we disapprove, it has to be shown to the public. Here is the link to the video :
