IWS sent this in:
OLE! El Generico is Your NEW IWS Champion! OLE!
El Generico and Kevin Steen are friends; roommates; traveling buddies.
But there are no friends once the bell rings; no friends in the squared circle. Not when a title is at stake.
Kevin Steen and El Generico reminded us of that on Saturday. From the one upmanship between the two during the ring introductions with Kevin Steen reminding the world that for every accomplishment of El Generico’s career Kevin Steen did it first: going to Japan, winning the PWG title, being named Quebec’s number one wrestler, with the one exception being when El Generico won the IWS title and Kevin Steen stole it from him five minutes later.
Reminded us when Kevin Steen grabbed El Generico and hurled him off the top turnbuckle and into a concrete pillar near the ring at Bogey’s. Reminded us when El Generico chopped Kevin Steen’s own father to gain a mental edge on Kevin. Reminded us when El Generico crushed his best friend’s face three times with running Yakuza kicks. Reminded us when El Generico took revenge on Kevin Steen for stealing the IWS belt from him in 2004, by wrenching back the belt in 2008.
Results Quick and Dirty
Saturday, February 16th, 2008
Bogey’s World, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
IWS Canadian Title Match: Max Boyer retained his title against Franky the Mobster in 12:31
IWS Tag Team Title Match: The Super Smash Brothers (Player Uno and Stupefied) retained their titles beating the Untouchables (Dan Paysan and Jimmy Stone) in 11:07 with Stupefied pinning Dan Paysan.
EXesS Open Challenge: EXesS beat Santino in 7:43
Damian Retirement Match: Kenny the Bastard beat Damian in 12:17
“Paranoid” Jake Matthews and Sexxxy Eddy beat the Green Phantom and Kid Kamikaze in 12:35 with Sexxxy Eddy pinning Kid Kamikaze.
Samson beat Shayne Hawke in 8:10.
IWS Title Match: El Generico beat Kevin Steen in 26:23 to become the IWS Champion for the second time.
Violent Valentine began with Max Boyer defending his IWS Canadian title against Franky the Mobster. An arrogant Max Boyer felt that his technical abilities would be more than a match for Franky, but Franky’s boisterous humour disguises a man who was trained to be an old school wrestler. A startled Max had to resort to an ambush roll-up to win the match and retain his title.
Dan Paysan and Jimmy Stone, The Untouchables, have been running their mouths for months about the inability of the Super Smash Brothers to touch them, to pin them, to beat them. Player Uno and Stupefied may have silenced the ersatz Italians by pinning Dan Paysan when Uno Goomba Stomped Dan right in his ridiculous golden spit curl and Stupefied Frog Splashed Dan for the win.
EXesS’ Open Challenge was answered by Joey Soprano… dragging his nephew Santino Italiano to the ring. Joey claimed that he had taught Santino all of EXesS’ weaknesses. Apparently, Joey’s idea of a weakness is that if you allow EXesS to hit you long enough and hard enough, his arms might get tired. Net result for Santino: two black eyes, one broken nose and a tap out to the Stretch Muffler.
2.0 dressed to the nines, confronted Twiggy in the ring, reminding him that everything good that Twiggy has ever had in the IWS, Jagged and Shane Matthews have taken away from him, including his tag team partner Pornstar Juan, his victory for the IWS Title against Manny and his chance for revenge at the Medley. They offered Twiggy the chance to either man up with a free shot… or walking away like their midget bitch. Twiggy walked away.
Damian’s last match may have been his best. He attacked Kenny the Bastard like a man with something to prove, but Kenny has been called the IWS Rubber Ball for a reason. Every time Damian stomped Kenny down, the Bastard bounced right back, even when Damian suplexed Kenny from the top rope through a table. Kenny stole a page from Damian’s book for the win, crushing the God of War’s chest with a 360 foot stomp from the top rope.
After the match, to chants of “Please Don’t Go!” and “God of War” Damian took the mike and explained that he was leaving the IWS because he was moving to Japan in September.
In a massive brawl, the Green Phantom found himself on the losing end against Jake Matthews once again as Jake and Eddy beat the temporary team of Kid Kamikaze and Phantom when Jake Matthews suplexed Double K through a table and Eddy followed up with his Pornstar Splash. They call him “Paranoid” Jake Matthews, but even paranoids have enemies. Jake’s enemy is now Green.
Beef Wellington came to the ring to berate the crowd, remind everyone that he is a miserable bastard and to shoot on Eddie Kingston. Beef complained that there is no one left in the IWS with any heart, that everyone came to the fed just to cash a cheque, just like Eddie Kingston. This brought out Santino Italiano all heart, two black eyes and a broken nose. One SICK E. Coli pile driver later and Beef left Santino lying in the ring, yelling, “That is what your heart and your passion gets you!”
Shayne Hawke was looking for revenge against Samson, but he is still looking. Shayne used every sneaky trick in his bag of tricks and invented a few more, but he was unable to overcome Samson’s strength. The strong man also displayed some interesting technical submission techniques forcing Hawke to tap to a shoulder crab variation that made it look like he was using Hawke like an exercise machine.
After El Generico won the IWS Title, IWS Canadian Champion Max Boyer came to the ring demanding a title shot against the new champion at Know Your Enemies. Complaining that once again Max wasn’t allowing a new champion to enjoy the moment, Kevin Steen insisted that he should be allowed the title shot and not Max. Eventually, Kevin announced that at the next show, the main event would be Kevin Steen vs. El Generico vs. Max Boyer for the IWS Title.
