and “Miracle” Mike James. Also announced was a match for the Impact Zone Wrestling
Championship, as Dean Radford would defend in a triple threat match against both
“Freak-O-Suave” Frenchy Riviera and “The Feature Presentation” Jay Garland. The duo
was interrupted by Greg DeMarco, who praised Dom “The Bomb” Vitalli on his Impulse
championship win from two weeks ago, and provided the traditional NWA show opening.
Johnny Roxx, then brought Impulse Champion Dom “The Bomb” Vitalli to the ring.
DTB informed the fans that his challenger, Marty Murphy, was not in

though no one actually accused Marty of anything. DTB declared himself free or the
evening, and was ready to leave when Tommy Drake hit the ring to become DTB’s new
Match 1: “The Limited Edition” Tommy Drake defeated NWA-IZW Impulse Champion

Championship due to the countout.
Match 2: “The Institution of Professional Wrestling” GQ Gallo pinned Lucha Star. Mike G
pushed Star off of the top rope, allowing Gallo to connect with a Wheel Barrow Face
Buster for the pin.
Match 3: IZW Champion “The East Coast Killer” Dean Radford defeated “The Feature

avalanche in the corner. With Garland on the outside, Radford connected with a Spine
Buster on Riviera for the pin.

Match 6: In the Main Event, “Miracle” Mike James pinned Derick Neikirk to win the
Arizona Heavyweight Championship. James inadvertently struck referee Sal Erakat with
a knee to the face, sending him to the outside. James then connected with the Miracle
Whip and covered Neikirk. Ryan Castelucci came out (wearing a black & white referee
shirt) to count the pinfall, but Neikirk kicked out. GQ Gallo stood on the ring apron to
argue with Castelucci, who eventually punched Gallo to the floor. James then hit a
