I’m playing catch up with the Showtime All-star Wrestling reports. They ran two “best of” shows as they were gearing up for their move from cable access to ION. I didn’t see episode 37, but I know it had the full length interview with Tommy Rich from which they showed clips a few weeks back. Episode 38 is worth going out of your way to see. It had the never before shown Boogie Woogie Boy vs. Hammerjack cage match from “New Year’s 2000 & Hate,” an awesome localized promo (what a lost art that is) by Paul Adams for his match in Columbia against Miss Boogie, and a 20 minute interview with Doug Gilbert.
Episode 39 was the first episode to air on WNPX in Nashville, which is the ION network affiliate in in Nashville. SAW is now available in 950,000 homes and to 2.5 million viewers across Middle Tennessee.
Showtime All-star Wrestling
Air date April 5, 2008 in Nashville on ION
LAST WEEK ON SAW: The bicycle kick from the SAW Television Champion Damian Adams sent Big Rig Bully into convulsions…Rob Roy McCoy debuted with the best Scottish accent in pro wrestling…Matt Dillinger cued up Lennox Lightfoot resulting in a DQ win for Indian Nation over Tennessee Violence Authority.
Michael St. John and Jack Johnson open the show. MSJ says this hour is loaded for bear with a TV Title match in the main event. He lied.
“It’s Showtime! And SAW starts now~!”
The opening montage rolls…
We see McCoy at the top of the ramp.
(1) Rob Roy McCoy beat Chris Eckos via submission in 5:45. McCoy came out with guns blazing, but within the first minute thirty, Eckos had two near falls on him and McCoy was bailing. Eckos ventured too close to the ropes, and McCoy caught him with hotshot. He hit a swinging neckbreaker and pulled the scrawny Eckos (or Echols as St. John called him) up at two. McCoy’s attack was ruthless aggression personified. .Eckos proved to be resilient little bugger. He wasn’t getting any more offense, but he did get another near fall with a backslide and a small package where McCoy kicked out before the count started. McCoy made him pay for it. Eckos made a strong comeback. He staggered McCoy with a Stinger Splash but couldn’t put him down. McCoy leapfrogged Eckos and gave him a mule kick low blow. That was nice. McCoy used a hangman neckbreaker to incapacitate Eckos for the chickenwing crossface. Eckos tapped straight away.
McCoy cut a promo on the SAW Television Champion.
“If that’s the best the United States has to offer, no wonder the real McCoy is cutting through the competition here. Damian Adams, I’m coming for your belt, boy. And you better be worried.”
(2) Damian Adams beat T. J. Harley to retain the SAW Television Title in 5:49. They cut to McCoy observing from the top of the ramp, as the match opened with a sportsmanlike feeling out process. St. John brought up Harley’s concentration problems. They broke into a quick exchange of pinning combinations. Harley hung Damian out to dry on a dropkick. Harley started working the back, using an inverted DDT backbreaker and a high impact Irish whip for two counts. Harley grounded the champion with a rear chinlock. The crowd chanted for Damian, who came back with a flurry. Harley ducked Damian’s bicycle kick finisher and went for a reverse roll up. Damian blocked by grabbing the ropes and pinned Harley with a jackknife.
Adams and Harley did the postmatch show of respect. McCoy turned his back and walked away in disgust.
Cut to Paul Adams backstage with the A Team consisting of Rick Santel, Hammerjack and Matt Dillinger. Hammerjack was showing a photo on his cell phone. Adams recoiled in horror. “How did she get those ping pong balls up there anyway?” Santel said he used to date that girl. Adams said he wasn’t surprised. Adams admitted that things had not been going smoothly for the A Team. Santel complained about taking two Boogie Blasters. Dillinger complained about losing last week via DQ because Adams didn’t distract the referee. Adams admitted he was at fault, but there were extenuating circumstances.
I can’t help it if some 49 year-old woman with saddlebags comes out and attack me. Things haven’t been going very well around here for me either.
Adams said they were on each other last nerve, so they were all going to take the week off to regroup. “Domination! Domination!” screamed Dillinger.
Smooth seas don’t make for skillful captains. They’ve been against us in SAW since we’ve been here. We’re going to come back stronger than ever.
Dillinger offered Adams a special gift – a Cadbury Crème Egg. Adams was touched. Dillinger spoiled the moment by disgusting Adams with a kiss.
(3) Sean Casey (with Tiana) beat Tatsu in 4:03. Tiana got plenty of lascivious attention from the MSJ and Johnson. The mysterious oriental hit a spinning heel kick. Casey took a water break and pulled Tatsu out of the ring. Johnson called it Oriental takeout. Back inside, Tatsu hit a Stinger splash for a two count. Tatsu worked on the arm. Casey took over with a swinging neckbreaker and did a double biceps pose with a knee on Tatsu’s throat. St. John said Casey could have the match won if he wanted it. Casey hit his middle rope diamond cutter. Tatsu kicked out of a very lazy back cover. Tatsu caught Casey with an O’Connor roll. Not enough for the pin. After a series of back and forth reversals, Casey terminated Tatsu with a superkick.
Casey said SAW had the best competition in the business, “but not enough to keep The Sexy One down.”
(4) Chrisjen Hayme beat Jeff Jamison in 3:50. Hayme started pounding on Jamison right at the opening bell. They broke into a luchaesque aerial sequence. Hayme clocked Jamison with an apron lariat to resume control. Hayme was being blatantly heelish here. St. John brought up Jamison’s “affliction” (deformed right hand) and mentioned other wrestlers that had overcome disabilities: Solento Rodriguez (deaf) and George Weingroff (blind). They traded some wicked stiff shots. Jamison hit a quebrada for a near fall. Hayme blocked a tornado DDT and spiked Jamison’s head into the mat with a spinning headscissors for the 1-2-3.
Hayme cut an arrogant promo. He graced the announce team an autographed photo of himself, warning them not to sell it on E-bay. Johnson got excited and asked St. John if he could have it. “You’ve probably got a lot of pictures. What have I got?” Hayme signed it “Michael St. Johnson.”
Big pop for the entrance of the Boogie Woogie Boy. Miss Boogie was out with a bit of bling. Boogie made his way through the crowd doing his thing, such as it is.
(5) Boogie Woogie Boy beat Lawrence Lane in 5:03. Boogie was ready for Lane’s ambush and teed off on him. Boogie went to town on Lane’s arm. MSJ talked about Boogie being Jimmy’s protégé. Johnson commented on Boogie’s amazing recuperative powers given the hell he’s been through. After connecting with a mule kick to the man region, Lane controlled the body of the match with his trashy offense. He choked Boogie at least four different ways. The crowd kept up a pretty stout “Boogie” chant. Boogie fought his way out of the dreaded rear chinlock, then crashed and burned on a high crossbody. Boogie avoided Lane’s mad charge into the corner. MSJ pointed out that Boogie was limping from a serious knee injury. Boogie decked Lane with a Jimmied up punch. Lane begged for mercy. None forthcoming. Boogie Blaster and done.
The A Team ran out and put the boots to Boogie. Arrick Andrews had Boogie’s back, but the odds were too much. Indian Nation (Lennox Lightfoot & Indian Outlaw) hit the ring and the A Team beat a hasty retreat to the ramp.
Boogie closed the show with an in ring promo channeling Jimmy. “Michael St. John, Boogie is feeling cool, and Boogie is going to act like a fool.” Boogie planted a suffocating smooch on MSJ. He called his partnership with Andrews “The Dream Team,” and with Indians on their side, the A Team no longer had the numbers. Boogie said this was Boogie Nation’s SAW. He was rambling all over the place, but did get the fans to chant “Boogie Nation” before it was over.
Closing Thoughts: Not as strong as I would have hoped for as their debut show on ION. The concepts for the two main stories were just fine. It was the execution that left something to be desired. McCoy was an inspired choice to lead off the first show for the expanded audience. For the life of me, I cannot fathom the way his match played out. He’s being pushed as the new top singles heel. He’s definitely got the look and the character for the spot. And then he has a struggle with a jobber in his first match. He shouldn’t have given Eckos squat. Harley and Damian had a good match. What’s up with hammering on Harley’s lack of focus? Does he have ADD or something? I liked McCoy being turned off by the show of good sportsmanship. The backstage segment depicting the unrest with the A Team was hilarious. Dillinger is in another universe. Not much to Casey’s match except a chance to ogle Tiana. I’m guessing Casey can’t do TV regularly enough to work him in a storyline. Hayme/Jamison wasn’t your typical SAW match. Really stiff and really fast-paced. At times, they were rushing through spots at the speed of light. Hayme’s promo had a solid premise. Too bad his shrill delivery ruined it. Johnson was funny marking out for the photo. I don’t think there’s much in between with Boogie. Either you love him or hate him. Boogie’s match was a well worn path – mostly Boogie selling, then a short comeback, then the Blaster. I guess Adams saying A Team was taking the week off was to swerve the audience. Good timing on the elevation of Indian Nation to the top babyface faction. Having the babyface side outnumber the heels is generally not a good thing, but it’s OK in this case since the babys have been beaten down so many times. A Boogie live promo is a dish best served short. Less is more with a Boogie promo, and this was way more than necessary. He went on so long that the heels left before he finished talking.

CWA Wrestling Press Release
CWA Wrestling Proudly Presents: Path to Glory
Saturday, May 3rd, 2008
Doors open: 6:30pm Belltime: 7:30pm
917 Second Street West
Cornwall, Ontario, Canada
Canadian Wrestling Action returns to Cornwall, Ontario on Saturday, May 3rd, 2008, live at Murphy's Inn, located at 917 Second Street, West; proudly presenting CWA Path to Glory!
Our last event featured a number of note-worthy events, the most important of which included CWA Commissioner Twiggy costing 'Prophet' Jeremy Barnoff his match against Cornwall's hometown hero Soulrage. After repeated attempts to have Twiggy understand that Prophet wanted to "go this one alone", and defeat Soulrage by himself, without anyone's help, Twiggy raced to the ring while the referee was down, during the match, and offered Prophet a pair of brass knuckles to "finish Soulrage's career for good". Instead, Prophet threw the knuckles down, and hit an incredible spinning neck breaker from the second rope to finish Soulrage off. As the referee recovered, and made the three count, both Twiggy and Prophet celebrated, with Twiggy exclaiming "We did it" while Prophet was steadfast in repeating he won the match on his own. As the referee recovered, however, he noticed the brass knuckles still in the ring. It was at that point that the referee reversed his decision, assuming that The Prophet had used the knuckles to win the match. Livid, Prophet chased Twiggy from the ring. He later offered a show of respect to his sworn rival, Soulrage, offering him a handshake. Soulrage accepted the handshake, and due to his win, will be given a World Heavyweight Championship match, in the future, as stipulated in the match.
Since then, Twiggy has claimed he has made every attempt in the world to contact Prophet to apologize (of course, we at the CWA offices are slightly skeptical to that claim). Irregardless, Twiggy has promised a hand-picked gift to the Prophet, as his way of apologizing. Twiggy has lined up a very special oponent for the Prophet to "help re-build his confidence, after such a devastating loss". And that match will take place on Saturday, May 3rd.
In addition, Shawn Morgan made an incredibly impressive debut against one half of the World's Largest Tag Team; 'Magnum' Mike Manicacle, making short work of him. Given Morgan's track record on the Ontario Independent scene, it was obvious to everyone in attendance that he had come to Cornwall to make a statement, and that statement was made violently. This time he looks to destroy the very man who represents Cornwall. The match has been signed, and Shawn Morgan will battle Soulrage!
As well, at our last event, we began a tournament to crown new Tag Team Champions, featuring a match between The Limestone City Wrecking Crew against Danny Linkin and Mike Lyons. Everything seemed to be going well for the Wrecking Crew, until CJ Felony turned on his partner, Harley Davison, out of the blue, superkicking him. The superkick resulted in Davison falling on a recently 3D'd Danny Linkin, and scoring the pinfall, as CJ Felony walked out of the ring. Now there is no secret that there has always been tension between the on-again-off-again partners of CJ Felony and Harley Davison, however it has finally come to a head. Commissioner Twiggy has ordered that these two settle their issues once and for all in a RESPECT MATCH, where the loser must get on the house mic and announce to the winner that they respect them at the end of the match. This one is going to be a brutal affair as there are NO DISQUALIFICATION or COUNT OUTS!
But of course, this event would not be complete without someone making an IMPACT, so to speak. And that man will be returning to CWA action for the first time in over 6 months. Eddie Osbourne will battle EZE in a match that may very well steal the show!
You can't miss this event! Tickets are on sale, in advance, at http://www.web-server.ca/tickets.html for $10.00, or can be purchased at the door for $12.00. Seating is General Admission, and will be first come, first serve.

This would be where I fill a thousand words trying to fill you in on the back story of why you should shell out money to see this show, but I have been furiously busy getting the “I”s crossed and the “T”s dotted on something that will make IWS fans very happy - more details on Saturday, cross fingers, knock on wood. Instead, let me give you some excerpts from my e-mail correspondence this month.
To Jimmy K :
Jimmy – I would worry about scaring you, but if anyone in wrestling is a Man with No Fear, it is you. Just your wardrobe alone proves that – I mean nobody else could pull off the toilet paper skirt. And nobody in the IWS is running a hot streak like you; there is a reason that you were named the IWS Rookie of the Year for 2007. And at the risk of jinxing you, you need to be told: Saturday is the most important match that you have ever wrestled.
You have a chance to win the IWS Title, the most important belt in Canada. You have a chance to beat Kevin Steen, arguably Canada’s Best Wrestler. And I mean that. You have a chance to win. But to do that, to prove that you deserve to wear the belt, to prove that you deserve to tour the world like Kevin Steen, you have to do one thing: you have to take off the brakes. Understand, I am not saying that you have held back in previous matches, but to beat Kevin Steen, to win the IWS Title, you have to have the very best match that you have ever had in your entire life. That means forgetting about revenge on EXesS, that means focusing every ounce of energy, every drop of sweat, everything you have into the one singular quest of beating Kevin Steen and taking his IWS gold.
You may not consider this a compliment – I do not know if you WILL be able to do that, but I firmly believe that you CAN.
To Max Boyer :
No, I will not start referring to you in print as “The Best Technical Wrestler in the Multiverse”.
To El Generico :
OLE! Por favor matanza Max Boyer. OLE!
To Twiggy :
Hey Twig. Look I know that you are upset that 2.0 are going to California to wrestle for PWG instead of you and Franky, because when PWG called on Monday, you and Franky were at the Habs game on a “team-bonding exercise”
I thought Franky hated hockey – Was he just there for the post-game riot? And was it really necessary for you two to burn that Cop car?
At least you get to take your frustrations out on 2.0 this Saturday when you and Franky defend your belts against Jagged and Shane Matthews.
You sure that Franky is okay with you naming the team the Rock 'N Roid Express?
To Jagged :
BOO-YAH to you too. Please stop calling me and e-mailing me and texting me and coming to the office to tell me that you are going to California to wrestle for PWG in their DDT4 Tag Team Tournament. The first fifty times were sufficient. And no, I will not announce that you are going to California as the IWS Tag Team Champions. You have to actually beat Twiggy and Franky first. I know you keep saying that the match is in the bag and that the victory is a minor technicality, but saying it don’t make it so.
To Twiggy :
--You sure that Franky is okay with you naming the team the Rock 'N Roid Express?
-Well if he has a problem with it, I'll just give him a hug, me & Juan used to hug, it's bound to work!
I don’t really think that Franky is a hugger.
To Canada Customs :
I know that you have been getting a series of anonymous phone calls and e-mails claiming that a “Mister Edward Kingston is coming to Canada on Saturday for the sole and express purpose of beating the living shit out of beloved Canadian icon Beef Wellington.” Please be informed that this information is incomplete and erroneous. Eddie Kingston is coming to Canada. He will be beating the shit out of Beef Wellington (if you let him across the border) Beef may be Canadian, but he is neither beloved nor an icon. Please allow Eddie Kingston to cross the border.
To the Broomboys :
You guys all know the rules when it comes to the Green Phantom and “Paranoid” Jake Matthews:
-Don’t make eye contact
-Don’t touch either of them (or their gear)
-Especially Jake’s shovel or Phantom’s mask
-Don’t talk to either of them.
-Do NOT under any circumstances drink any hot liquid near either of them.
But given what happened to “Pure Fucking Metal” at the last staff meeting (and good news, it appears that he will be all right) I think we need to impose a new rule:
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES EVER stand directly between the Green Phantom and Jake
Good luck on Saturday.
To Mr. Suave Josh Aero and Marko Estrada :
If you guys plan on cracking the roster on a permanent basis, you couldn’t ask for a better opportunity than a match against the former IWS Canadian Champions. I should warn you that Player Uno and Stupefied want a shot at getting their belts back as soon as possible and if that means kicking you two repeatedly in the head, that’s a sacrifice that Uno and Stup are prepared to make.
Also do you guys have a team name? You really don’t want me to invent one.
To NOT-A Superstar Shayne Hawke :
Shayne, congratulations I guess. You were able to convince the office not to suspend EXesS for excessive violence after he punched a tooth right out of Jimmy K’s head. So you will be able to tag with EXesS against the New Jersey All Stars. I should warn you that EXesS is on thin ice with the office. There are some grumblings that he has broken the wrestling “code”.
I know that you don’t care about my opinion, but it seems like a lot of effort to go to for a guy who is not exactly the shining example of a good team mate.
On the other hand, you two deserve each other!
To Lucky :
I don’t know if anyone remembers you from your last visits to Quebec two years ago, but the last time you were here, you were GREAT! Look forward to seeing you again!
I should probably warn you, you’re fighting EXesS and Shayne Hawke. Hawke is a nuisance and a pest. EXesS is the crankiest son-of-a-bitch on the face of the earth, stiff as hell and sneaky as a rattle-snake.

CHIKARA brings the high-flying action with "Rey de Voladores"!
In the month of May, CHIKARA is going to gather up 8 of the world's finest high-flying wrestlers, and put them together in a mini-tournament we call "Rey de Voladores" (that's Spanish for "King of Flyers")! On Monday, we confirmed our own Lince Dorado as the first official entry into RdV. Dorado made it to the finals of last year's tournament, where he met defeat at the hands of Chuck Taylor. Considering his strong showing at this year's King of Trios tournament, maybe the title "King of Flyers" is the next accolade the young luchador will earn.
Wednesday we added another talented aerialist to the line-up, in our own Young Lions Cup champion Helios. Just this past weekend, Helios retained the Young Lions Cup in his 3rd defense over Lince Dorado, and now the two will be on opposite ends of a 4-way elimination match, with 2 more participants yet to be revealed in the next few weeks.
Today we announce the first man in the other block of "Rey de Voladores": Incognito. Like Lince Dorado, he is one-third of this year's King of Trios, and this experienced luchador is a flyer of the highest calibre. His gravity-defying offense impressed not just the loyal members of the CHIKARMY, but the Director of Fun as well. Next week, we'll announce 2 more participants in the mini-tournament, as well as a bunch of matches for our upcoming shows.
"Rey de Voladores" matches will take place at our first two events in the month of May - that's May 17 in Hellertown and May 18 in Philadelphia. Fans attending our May 18 card will have the option to stay at the Alhambra to watch WWE pay-per-view event "Judgment Day" immediately following our live event, and we'll announce more details as we get them from our pals at the New Alhambra.
Be sure to drop by our online mothership www.chikarapro.com on Monday as we announce 4 big matches for our impending May shows!
Advance tickets for our next 7 live events, including Young Lions Cup VI are on sale right now! Visit our online store and pick up your copy of the first issue of the CHIKARA comic book (Season 7, Volume 1)!

MAIN EVENT: REVELATION 13 EXPLODES!!!!! FANS BRING THE WEAPONS!
Faith In Nothing (Christian Faith & Vincent Nothing) & Mad Man Pondo VS. Revelation 13's "The Passion" John Thorne, Matthew Justice and Drake Younger
For years, Vincent Nothing, Christian Faith and "The Passion" John Thorne ran wild on AIW causing mayhem and chaos everywhere they went. For various reasons, Faith and Nothing left AIW leaving Thorne alone and creating a tag team called "Faith In Nothing". During this time, Thorne and Matthew Justice became a force to be reckoned with, holding the AIW Tag Titles and doing such acts as lighting a casket on fire with people inside. During the October 2007 event "Hell On Earth 3" during a hardcore 3-Way Dance with The Necro Butcher, Drake Younger and Thorne, Drake attacked Necro and joined Revelation 13. Necro enlisted his best friend, Mad Man Pondo in this war and Thorne actually pinned the hardcore legend at February's Gauntlet For The Gold 3. Justice and Thorne attacked after the match, leading to Vincent Nothing making his surprise return. During a tag match between Revelation 13 and Nothing/Thrillbilly at March's "Destroy Everything!", Thorne and Justice attacked both with chairs and stun guns. So these series of events lead to Vincent Nothing calling his ally, and reforming Faith In Nothing in Cleveland and with Mad Man Pondo on their side going to war with the current version of Revelation 13 in Drake Younger, Matthew Justice and "The Passion" John Thorne. You fans have been enlisted to bring, build and create weapons for these men to hit each other with. One can only imagine that a ring will not hold these men, so this match will be contested under falls count anywhere rules. Who will survive?
FINAL BATTLE FOR THE ABSOLUTE TITLE
AIW Absolute Champ Sterling James Keenan will battle Dios Salvador for the final time. If SJK wins, Dios will never get a title shot as long as SJK is champ. If Dios wins, he will become Absolute Champ and SJK will not get a return match.
Sterling James Keenan and Dios Salvador have battled each other three times in singles action, and this will be the forth. They hold two pin fall victories over each other. This ladies and gentlemen is the rubber match and win, lose or draw will be the final time they wrestle each other in one on one action. Sterling James Keenan is the current Absolute Champion, and that's where things get interesting. If SJK wins, Dios will never get another Absolute Title shot until SJK is no longer champ. If Dios Salvador takes the Absolute Title, SJK will not get a return match until Dios is no longer champ. Another note is their last match ended when Josh Prohibition ran-in and cost Dios the victory. Dios at one time was Josh's top student, but somewhere along the line, they had a falling out. The reasons are unknown but their battles have been ultra-personal. Josh Prohibition has been BANNED from the building on May 25th, and if he physically appears, will be fired on the spot by AIW. However, Josh has asked to speak a few words live via video in front of the crowd before this match and that wish has been granted. Who will leave Absolution 3 as Absolute Champ?
STEEL CAGE MATCH FOR THE AIW TAG TITLES!
If Alpha Beta Duke win, Nick/Oprah become the AIW Tag Champs, If Alpha Beta Duke loses, they will disband!
AIW Tag Champs: The Switchblade Saints (Matt Riot & Sami Callihan) with partner Jason Bane VS. Alpha Beta Duke (Nick Belushi, Super Oprah and THE DUKE)
Since December of 2007, The Switchblade Saints have done battle with Alpha Beta Duke, in particular singling out Nick Belushi. While, The Switchblades are undefeated as a tag team in AIW, they could never get the AIW Tag Titles or one up Alpha Beta Duke. That was until "Destroy Everything!" when Jason Bane jumped the guardrail and brutalized Super Oprah, leading to Alpha Beta Duke losing their tag straps. The Switchblade Saints brought Jason Bane in as their "hired gun" and it apparently worked. During the fallout of the match, Absolute Owner Chandler Biggins came out and announced that the Switchblades and Bane would have to meet all three members of Alpha Beta Duke inside of a steel cage at Absolution 3, including The Duke! The rules are simple, two men will enter and every 2 minutes, another man will enter. The Switchblades have the advantage due to being champs. When all 6 men are in the ring, the match can end by pin fall or submission. If Alpha Beta Duke wins, Nick/Oprah will regain the AIW Tag Team Titles. If The Switchblade Saints win, Alpha Beta Duke will have to disband forever!
30 MINUTE IRON MAN MATCH FOR INTENSE TITLE!
Intense Champ Tyler Black VS. Johnny Gargano
Johnny Gargano debuted in AIW during Gauntlet For The Gold 2005, while not making a big splash it paved the way for him to be a mainstay in the Intense Division. Johnny was there when the division was formed during a scramble match in March of 2006. But then after Absolution 1, Johnny due to the politics of wrestling left AIW. Since then, people have always wondered what would have happened had Johnny stayed with AIW. But during this time, Tyler Black came to AIW in December 2006 with a long resume, but had never been seen in the local area. Since then he's competed in Wrestling Society X shown on MTV and Ring Of Honor. Tyler is considered by some the fastest rising independent wrestling star in the world right now. Part of his success is practically holding the Intense Division hostage by keeping the Title for close to a year. During this time, weird messages started appearing on Internet message board and myspace. This viral campaign was part of Johnny Gargano's grand comeback, leading to his beating both Shane Hollister and Josh Prohibition back to back. Tyler who had set these men up to ruin Johnny's dreams, failed in his task to stop Gargano. The match was set for March. Tyler and Shane Hollister were attacking Shiima Xion when Johnny made the save and requested his Intense title match then and there. Tyler who didn't have to grant the match, said he'd do it but only if they had a 15 minute time limit. Regarded as one of the best Intense Division matches ever, the match ended in a time limit draw. Johnny requested a rematch with 15 minutes longer at Absolution 3 and Tyler shockingly accepted. Will Tyler hold the title longer than any person ever in the history of AIW? Or will Johnny live his dream and win AIW gold?
TAG TEAM TLC MATCH FOR TAG TITLE CONTENDERSHIP!
The Young Studs (Eric Ryan & TJ Dynamite) VS. The Homeless Handicap Connection (Hobo Joe & Gregory Iron) VS. Da Latin Crime Syndicate (Luis Diamante & K.Fernadez)
A feud that has been brewing for months, has been brought to the boiling point. The Homeless Handicap Connection have never been able to beat The Young Studs in the multiple times they have met. And when Da Latin Crime Syndicate got added last month to the feud, The Young Studs were able to pin K.Fernadez. This time they will meet in a TLC Match for a future AIW Tag Title shot. Will The Homeless Handicap Connection pull off the unthinkable and actually win a match in AIW? Or will The Young Studs pull off yet another victory? Or will Da Latin Crime Syndicate with family members such as "Joey The Snake" at ringside pull off the victory?
WOMAN V.S. WOMAN FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN AIW!
Hailey Hatred will battle Team Sexy's Handpicked Mickie Knuckles
There was once a time where Team Sexy were a fun loving team of Rebis & The Potato just wanted to dance and have fun. But suddenly when they saw Hailey Hatred debuting in AIW, saw their spot on the show going to a woman. And with no luck what-so-ever with women, they became very bitter. It escalated when Rebis & The Potato called out Hailey, which ended with Rebis being put thru a table and Potato close to death. The second time they tried, they saw the same results. Team Sexy figures if you can't find a man to beat a woman, find another woman. And they have recruited "The Walking Episode Of Cops" Mickie Knuckles. Mickie who once won the "Queen Of The Deathmatch" Tournament is know for her hard hitting, hardcore, brutal style. These are two ladies that aren't afraid to beat the hell out of each other, and if history has shown us, will. Will Team Sexy being in Mickie's corner help her? Or will Hailey continue her dominance in AIW?
MIKE TOLAR'S REVENGE!
Mike Tolar & "The Ironman" Rob Conway VS. Marion Fontaine & Chris Cronus
Mike Tolar who trained to wrestle in Ohio Valley Wrestling. made his AIW debut against Chris Cronus in February, a even match up became uneven when Marion Fontaine returned to AIW and attacked Tolar with his trusty tennis racquet. Tolar tried to even the odds at "Destroy Everything!" when he enlisted Ricky Landell to be his partner, but again came up short against the former "Sweet Dudes". Tolar claimed he would go into his OVW past and he has, calling his friend, "The Ironman" Rob Conway. Rob Conway, formerly of WWE, has said he's willing to help Mike's cause and will be at Absolution 3 to take on Cronus and Fontaine.
THE RETURN OF THE INTENSE DIVISION 6-PACK SCRAMBLE!
