The Chronicles of Chicago Championship Wrestling

Recommended Posts


—Reported by A. Washington



An independent company is to be added to the wrestling world. But that’s nothing new, what is new is the fact that ‘The Second City Saint’ Joel Leon—a wrestler who wrestles mainly in Chicago—has started the promotion. I caught up with Leon early today and this is what he had to say:


“There is a lack of wrestling in Chicago. I mean, at one point in time Chicago was overpopulated with wrestling promotions. Now it’s just a ‘passer-by’ town. Yeah, you get the Supreme Wrestling Federation and Total Championship Wrestling coming and going in the town, but I want to create something that is ‘based’ in Chicago. And that’s what I’ve done. Yeah, we might be going to over cities when our popularity grows – but we will always be based in Chicago. That is why I’ve named the promotion: ‘Chicago Championship Wrestling’. And our first show will be in a few weeks time…Erm, sorry I gotta go…”


The name Chicago Championship Wrestling is arguably a great name for a promotion starting out in Chicago. But can it live up to the ‘great’ name and put on some decent wrestling cards? I did point that out to Leon when I caught up with him earlier, and asked him about the product. He said it would be a ‘modern’ promotion. Which will most probably mean it’s going to be based heavily on wrestling and the feuds surrounding the promotion. This is an interesting concept taken by Joel Leon, who is clearly staying with what he knows and not trying to create a promotion that is different in any way. More on this as we get it…


Reading that small-tidbit of an ‘interview’ made me feel all excited. The plan was coming alive. The plan was slowly building. I mean, I could not wait. It was slowly planned out by me. I mean after years of lousy paycheques and taking spots that put my career in jeopardy, I’ve finally had enough money to actually start up a promotion in my home city of Chicago. No backing whatsoever. No investments. No bank loans. My money built the house. That’s the phrase that keeps on going through my head ‘my money built the house’, and that’s something that hardly anyone can say nowadays.


While reading that small-tidbit, Washington stated that I said the promotion would have a ‘modern’ feel to it. But he wrongly stated the emphasis would be just on wrestling and the feuds surrounding it. Yes, those are two major parts of a promotion – however, my take on ‘modern’ will be alot more. My take on the ‘modern’ style will emphasise on character building and building a ‘unique’ product. Not the same reused ‘sports entertainment’ not the same old ‘Total style’ – something that has it’s own feeling. I mean, DaVE had the hardcore feeling and Pride Glory Honor Wrestling has their intense puroresu feeling. What I strive for is for the promotion to have it’s own feeling…


That’s enough speaking about the promotion…I guess I have to speak about the talent next.

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Cannonball Run (450 splash) – Huey Cannonball, Stage Dive (diving spear) – Jefferson Stardust and the Awesome Splash (double diving splash) – Double Team Finisher.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

The ‘young blood’ of the roster. Both men got their start in Mid Atlantic Wrestling over down in Baltimore, and recently formed a tag team together. Boasting a ‘rock star’ like attitude, these two arrogant young wrestlers are actually quite good at what they do. And that’s work as team. Looking over eachother’s backs and helping eachother during singles matches, The Awesomeness are set to go far in CCW. Especially with their awesome ‘Awesome Splash’ which never seems to miss.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finisher:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Dream Left Hook (left handed knockout hook)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

They don’t call him ‘Hands of Stone’ for nothing. Bradford Peverell is one of the best strikers on the roster, utilizing his punches to slowly wear down an opponent and eventually lead to the ‘Dream Left Hook’, which always knocks out an opponent – no matter what the situation. Bradford got his first taste of fame in FREEDOM Championship Wrestling in Puerto Rico, and has since built up a reputation that surrounds his ‘Hands of Stone’ nickname. He knocked out Puerto Rican Power—the biggest star in all of Puerto Rico—with his ‘Dream Left Hook’, and many will most certainly fall to it.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finisher:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Idolizer (rolling neckbreaker)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

‘The Teen Dream’ Brendan Idol may be familiar to some. This is largely due to the role he played in Supreme Wrestling Federation’s developmental territory: Rhode Island Pro Wrestling. He was primarily the underdog, but nonetheless the women who came to the shows cheered him on. This is mostly due to his self-proclaimed ‘movie star looks’. Using an impressive rolling neckbreaker (known as the ‘Idolizer’) as a finisher, Brendan looks to go far in Chicago Championship Wrestling.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Inverted Piledriver and the Bulldozer Slam (Olympic slam)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith is arguably one of the brightest prospects in the wrestling world today. The current Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion in Mid Atlantic Wrestling and a two-time Rip Chord Invitational winner, Brandon Smith has already racked up impressive wins and impressive accolades in his short career. A former American footballer, Smith uses some of the techniques from his football days in the ring, this includes the shoulder block and the body tackle. Smith is looking to impress in Chicago Championship Wrestling, and he may do that.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Proton Lock (Sharpshooter)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

Greg Gauge is the son of famous well-travelled wrestler Sam Keith. His twin brother: Matthew, debuted at around about the same time as him but the two went separate ways. Greg went to Japan whilst his brother opted to stay in the United States. Greg plans to make his return to the United States by choosing to wrestler for Chicago Championship Wrestling along with wrestling in the ‘Rising Sun’ for Golden Canvas Grappling, With the deadly ‘Proton Lock’ as his finisher, can Gauge force the many stars on the roster to submit?</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Cash In (cutter, sometimes from the top rope) and To The Bank (diving European uppercut)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

‘High Roller’ Jason Jordan has a taste for the finest things in life. The best champagnes, wines, cars, women and basically anything that is expensive. But his love for wrestling is something that he can’t put a price on. Coming down to the ring in a suit, you’d think Jordan is a manager but when he takes off his suit and reveals a wrestling attire – it’s all business. Using the devastating ‘Cash In’ finisher to finish off opponents, Jordan can also take to the skies to take down an opponent – taking them on a trip ‘To The Bank’. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Discus Punch and the Blonde Bomber (sliding powerbomb)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

Nicknamed the ‘Blonde Bomber’, Jerry Martin is best described as a ‘psycho’. His enjoyment for punishment on others has lead him to the wrestling world, and he has been punishing a lot of people with his psychotic brawling style. Striking fear into his opponents by using the ‘Psycho Theme’ out of Alfred Hitchock’s ‘Psycho’ film, Jerry Martin lives up to what the song promotes – and that is a psychotic maniac.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> J-Lock (Muta lock), J-Ploder (high-impact exploder supex) and J-Ploder II (head and arm suplex)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

The owner of Chicago Championship Wrestling – Joel Leon’s style is somewhat best described as a ‘super junior’. Boasting great high flying moves, it’s clearly evident that Joel’s home is in the sky. However, when he’s not flying, his outstanding high impact moves keep his opponent’s at bay. Especially his J-Ploder Suplexes, which will knock the wind out of any opponent who comes into his path.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Kirk-Hold (elevated Boston crab) and The Bullseye (jumping reverse STO)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

‘The Marksman’ Kirk Jameson isn’t called the ‘Marksman’ for nothing. A master of the technical ability, Jameson was called the nickname he was given due to his style of attack. He picks apart any part of the body that he can apply a submission on and then dismantaling it before applying the submission that might guarantee him a victory. However, if he can’t get the victory with the submission – he slaps on the Kirk-Hold which is guaranteed o give him the victory or he even strikes with the super-fast Bullseye, which can come from almost nowhere. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Third Strike (springboard dragonrana) – Mr. Lucha III, Salvaje Suplex (bridging tiger suplex) – Tigre Salvaje, Tigre Roll (high-angled senton bomb) and Lucha Strike (electric chair lift followed by a ‘Third Strike’) – Double Team Finisher</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

This newly-created team titled ‘Lucha Revolución’, is a team consisting of the third incarnation of Mr. Lucha and the son of the original Tigre Salvaje (which stands for ‘Savage Tiger’). Both Mr. Lucha III and Tigre Salvaje look to show Chicago Championship Wrestling what lucha libre is about and looking at their innovative offence—which is heavily based on high flying—we’ll sure to be seeing dazzling displays from both men in singles and tag team competition.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Kimura and the Lethal Triangle (triangle choke)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

Mario da Silva is a practitioner of the art of Mixed Martial Arts. But he mainly specializes in the art of Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu – which mainly deals with the art of submissions. This is clearly evident in da Silva’s ring style as his submissions can potentially end the match. Mario has a reputation for pulling out submissions from almost nowhere as it was seen in his victory over Kirk Drury in All-Canada Pro Wrestling. Drury tried for a powerbomb, but instead got trapped in the ‘Lethal Triangle’.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finisher:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Hock Shock (TKO)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

‘Shocking’ Matt Hocking is one of the up-and-comers on the wrestling scene today. Boasting great all-around potential, Hocking has shown that he has the technical ability, the ability to brawl and the ability to fly all in one match. He was trained by ‘Lone Wolf’ Shawn Gonzalez (head booker of FREEDOM Championship Wrestling) and has shown great promise. He has faced the likes of Puerto Rican Power and his trainer Shawn Gonzalez in excellent matches. He makes his way to Chicago Championship Wrestling to hopefully mimic his success in FCW.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finisher:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Drift Shift (blue thunder driver)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

The mysterious Nomad is a Canadian wrestler who is often seen as a ‘grunge rocker’. His wrestling attire is similar to that of a grunge rocker, which is most probably why he’s seen as one. Aside from the look, he’s a very good wrestler who produces good matches. Taking to the skies often, some overlook Nomad’s technical skill and his ability to get hardcore (if he so chooses to). Nomad looks to go far in the company.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Skye Diver (leapfrog legdrop/guillotine leg drop) and Psyche Out (side effect, sometimes from the top rope)</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

The enigmatic ‘Psyche Out’ Remmy Skye is a cruiserweight wrestler, with great wrestling skill. Boasting a wide variety of high-flying moves and cruiserweight techniques, it is mainly due to this that he has been able to pick up a Costal Zone Championship Wrestling title. Skye is also known to be called the ‘King of the Ladder Matches’ due to his experience in the match. It is in the ladder match he feels at home, and we’ll be seeing why he’s called the ‘King of the Ladder Matches’ very soon.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

</span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><strong>Finishers:</strong></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> Waldorf Salad Toss (Alabama slam) – Dean Waldorf, Chicago Flying Elbow (flying elbow drop) – Dean Waldorf, Marvelous Backbreaker (backdrop backbreaker) and the Chicago Drop (clothesline/spinebuster combination) – Double Team Finisher</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

One of Chicago’s best tag team talents, the Ring Generals consist of ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf and ‘Marvelous’ Marv Statler. Both men wrestle a very old-school style of wrestling, with a hint of ‘dirty tricks’ to get the upper hand on their opponents. Their ‘Chicago Drop’ is a very dangerous tag team move, and has been known to put away even the </span><span style="font-family:verdana;"><em>strongest</em></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> of opponents. These two could very well be the first CCW Tag Team Champions.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

One of the many American Indians to enter the world of wrestling, Running Wolf follows in the footsteps of the great Chief Two Eagles. Pretty much sharing the same ring style as Chief Two Eagles, Wolf uses the Tomahawk Chop to finish opponents and at times (from the top rope) it can be pretty lethal. Wolf also boasts a incredibly physique and athleticism which allows him to pull out moves a normal big man can’t do. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

‘Trademark’ Thomas Morgan is an excellent talent from Canada, who wrestles a technical-heavy style. His technical-heavy style normally involves him building up slowly to his STF, which can potentially put away even the biggest of wrestlers. He was a collegiate wrestler at one point in time as his mat-wrestling skills show. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

The biggest man on the roster at 7’ and 365lbs, Titan is a force to be reckoned with. Debuting in 2005, he has been somewhat of a dangerous man to wrestle. Very few have knocked him down, and very few have kicked out of his massive ‘Titanic Chokeslam’. Being the only giant on the roster (with one person coming close to his size, that being the 6’6’ Running Wolf), could we see Titan throw around every other wrestler like ragdolls or will they find a way to take him down?</span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;">

The fact you have put a good amount of effort into the worker profiles on the roster page, already piques my interest with this. Hopefully the first show will live up to the standards you already setting yourself.



‘Marvelous’ Marv Statler versus ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf versus Titan versus ‘High Roller’ Jason Jordan versus ‘The Marksman’ Kirk Jameson versus ‘The Second City Saint’ Joel Leon versus Greg Gauge versus Bulldozer Brandon Smith versus Bradford Peverall versus Remmy Skye


Like Levitical I feel the first champion is going to be someone who qualified to enter into the match, but I'll go a different way and tip Greg Gauge to be the first champion.



Mario da Silva versus Greg Gauge


More familiar with Gauge, and besides he's the son of Sam Keith.



‘Hands of Stone’ Bradford Peverell versus ‘Shocking’ Matt Hocking


Peverall just seems to have more potential at this stage to reach the main event in a promotion of this size.



‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith versus Jerry Martin


As Levitical said BBS is the stud heavyweight of the Indies.



Nomad versus ‘Psyche Out’ Remmy Skye


More star power with Skye



The Awesomeness versus Lucha Revolución


Could go either way this, so I'll go the opposite to Levitical

‘Marvelous’ Marv Statler versus ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf versus Titan versus ‘High Roller’ Jason Jordan versus ‘The Marksman’ Kirk Jameson versus ‘The Second City Saint’ Joel Leon versus ??? versus ??? versus ??? versus ???


I'll go with Marv Statler. Gauge, BSS and Jameson are probably your best workers, but they're still young and unproved.



Mario da Silva versus Greg Gauge


Can't go wrong with a Gauge twin!



‘Hands of Stone’ Bradford Peverell versus ‘Shocking’ Matt Hocking


I've no idea frankly, I'll pick Peverell because I know him a bit bette thant Hocking



‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith versus Jerry Martin


BBS is no BS! Still, you'll need somebody over to fight Gauge



Nomad versus ‘Psyche Out’ Remmy Skye


Difficult pick, I'll go with the Remmy



The Awesomeness versus Lucha Revolución


Luchalibre! And their entrance theme's cool :cool:

Live From: The Warehouse, Chicago, Illinois


On a cold January winter night, around about five-hundred fans slowly make their way to their respective seats in the Warehouse complex in downtown Chicago. The other attractions are being used currently, as the sounds of pool balls smacking against eachother echo through the many corridors and people shouting: “Chug! Chug!” over and over again can also be heard.


After a few moments, we are introduced to the announce team for the DVD releases of Chicago Championship Wrestling’s events: Cliff Anderson and Sara Silver. The former Las Vegas showgirl is quick to pose and throw kisses at the fans on her way down to the ring, before taking a seat beside Cliff at ‘The Nest’ which is located on the east side of the actual ringside area. It’s basically a stage on top of another stage, and they share the same spot as the DJ.


After several minutes of waiting, we get our first match underway as the strong beats from an electric guitar are heard, and “Hands Off” by Nonpoint begins to play throughout the Warehouse. Out comes Nomad in a black t-shirt and jeans which seem shredded at the bottom and slashed at the knees. With his messy, shoulder-length black hair covering most of his face – it’s quite hard to see his facial expressions. Though he brushes his messy hair to the side, and he lets out a scream whilst he’s on the apron. He enters the ring and brushes past the referee for the match: Bret Graveson.


SARA SILVER: “…This…This is what kind of talent we attract? God, this man – he looks horrible.”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “What do you mean by that? Nomad is an exceptional talent…Yes, he does dress like one of those emo kids from across the street – but look past th—“


SARA SILVER: “I’m not lookin’ past that!”


“Hands Off” fades out, and on comes “Modest” by Peroxwhy?gen as ‘Psyche Out’ Remmy Skye strides out. Wearing black cargo trousers and no t-shirt whatsoever, Remmy walks slowly down the ramp. It is evident that he has some sort of towel hanging out of the back pocket of his trousers and it sways back and fourth whilst he’s walking, pointing to the many fans as he enters the ring. Both men are told the rules of the match and are also told that a place in the Chicago Rumble—to be held later on tonight—is on the line. After both men nod in agreement of the rules set, the bell is rung and we are off – the first ever match to be ever held in Chicago Championship Wrestling, is underway.


SARA SILVER: “Oh great two freaks competing against eachother. Enjoy this one folks.”



Both men circle the ring slowly. Nomad outstretches his arm and Remmy does the same before both men lock up in a Greco-roman knuckle lock. Some sort of test of strength ensues with neither man getting the advantage until Nomad throws Skye over with an arm drag. Skye seems to shake off the actual move itself before getting to his feet and running into another one, with the grunge-rocker locking in a variation of the armbar in afterwards. Nomad slowly transitions the armbar into a chinlock and lets out a growl to the disapproval of the fans, who were clearly behind the enigmatic Remmy Skye. ‘Psyche Out’ after a few seconds in the chinlock starts to stand on his feet and Nomad attempts to keep him down with knees to the back of his legs, but Remmy breaks out of it and locks in a side-headlock. The Canadian, who is trapped in-between the armpit and the arm of Remmy lifts him skywards. A back suplex attempt is countered by Skye—who backflips behind—and pushes him to the ropes.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Wonderful counter by ‘Psyche Out’…I mean, that was swift.”


SARA SILVER: “Swift? Swift? What the hell are you talking about? Pfft, that wasn’t swift.”


Nomad comes charging back and Skye ducks down. With Nomad going so fast, he is unable to put the breaks on and is thrown overhead by Skye with a back body drop. A loud thud echoes throughout the Warehouse once Nomad hits the canvas, and he slowly gets to his feet seconds later. Skye immediately goes on the offensive, nailing Nomad with clubbing blows to the back and head before clotheslining him over the top rope to the concrete floor. As Nomad crashed to the floor, Remmy was already preparing for his next move. He started pointing at his fallen opponent and climbed all the way to the top rope, just overlooking Nomad’s position. Eventually he leaped off with a crossbody onto Nomad, to a great reaction from the crowd. It is unsurprisingly Skye that is the first one to get to his feet and he sends Nomad into the ring to make the first pinfall of the match and the whole of the company’s history…to only get a two.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Whatta maneuver!”


Skye drags Nomad to the middle of the ring and makes his way to the top rope once again, but his plans are scuppered as Nomad is quick on his feet and throws Skye off the top rope and down onto the canvas. ‘Psyche Out’ slowly but surely gets to his feet, only to meet a dropkick straight to his face; the strike sends him staggering backwards and he finds himself resting on the ropes. Nomad goes back on the attack, driving his fists into the skull of Skye – causing him to teeter on the ropes before dragging him into the middle of the ring and dropping him with a nice snap suplex. The grunge-rocker kips up onto his feet and takes a place right next to the right side of Skye. He stared around the Warehouse and then flicked his hair before performing a moonsault splash onto the body of Skye, and that could very well be it…One! Two! Kickout!


SARA SILVER: “Kickout at two! Nomad should’ve just gone for the moonsault instead of messing with his hair…In fact he needs a haircut.”


Nomad drags Remmy to his feet and slams him back down on the canvas with a twisting neckbreaker and if that wasn’t enough, he picks him up and drops him with another. With Remmy seemingly down and out, Nomad immediately calls an end to this charade. Pulling up ‘Psyche Out’ by his multi-coloured hair, Nomad manages to stand him up and he places him in a front facelock. He gets a hold of his cargo trousers’ pocket and tries lifting back, but Remmy blocks. Nomad starts to pound on the back of Remmy and tries lifting him up once again, but it fails and Remmy spins out of it and attempts the Psyche Out but it’s blocked by Nomad! The Canadian manages to break out of the move attempt and drill Remmy with an open-palm strike before slipping behind him and lifting him up…Drift Shift! But Remmy counters into a hurricanrana and now has both legs hooked…One! Two! Three! Remmy advances to the Chicago Rumble later on tonight after a brilliant counter!

Winner: Remmy Skye [Pinfall -> 9’21]


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Remmy gets it! Remmy gets it with the counter!”


SARA SILVER: “Thank god it’s over. I was bored.”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “—Wait what? Bored? Bored? Bored! Woman, that was a great match!”


The crowd go crazy as ‘Psyche Out’ quickly rolls out the ring and Bret Graveson follows him to raise his arm. Meanwhile, inside the ring, Nomad is wondering what the hell happened as he starts to pound the ground furiously – knowing full well that he had the match in the bag. As Nomad turns his attention to the rainbow-haired wrestler with his arm raised in victory on the walkway, he screams out in frustration and stands up to a hostile reaction from the crowd. All Nomad could should was “Shut the hell up!” The fans were clearly getting to him as they started chanting “Slit your wrists! Slit your wrists!” Over and over again. Nomad eventually clears from the ring and we move onto our next match.


SARA SILVER: “Good. They’re subjecting him to the abuse he deserves. That’s right, slit your wrists!”


“Runaround Man” by Motorhead plays throughout the Warehouse as ‘Shocking’ Matt Hocking runs out in front of the crowd. Wearing his trademark blue bandanna across his forehead and his sunglasses, Hocking runs down to the ring – letting his hair wildly sway from side to side. He slides inside the ring and runs back and fourth as Michael ‘No Bull****’ Bull stops him and reminds him of the rules and whatnot before letting him proceed with warming himself up.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “And there is ‘Shocking’ Matt Hocking. FREEDOM Championship Wrestling’s brightest prospect. The man has done so many things—“


SARA SILVER: “Save the damn anology, it’s nearly the second match of the night and you’ve almost bored me. Shut up, an’ let me listen to some Motorhead…”


“Time 4 Sum Aksion” by Redman blasts through the P.A. system as the lights in the Warehouse start to flicker and dry ice seeps through the curtain on the top half of the walkway. Out steps Bradford Peverell. Dressed in a gold boxing robe with the words ‘Hands of Stone’ emblazoned on the back, Peverell makes his way down to the ring. He hops onto the apron and throws away his boxing robe to reveal his wrestling attire. A pair of black and gold boxing shorts with the same coloured boots. His left hand is covered in a black glove, which indicates that it’s the dangerous hand. The one that Matt Hocking should stay away from. And the ‘Shocking’ one looks on at Peverell who lifts his arms in the air arrogantly, drawing boos from the crowd. He steps inside the ring and Michael Bull immediately goes through the rules with him and then going for the bell. And our second match of the night is also for a place in the Chicago Rumble later on tonight.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “It’s the mismatch of the card! The all-arounder versus the striker, anything can happen!”



The bell rings and Hocking is immediately on the attack, trying to take down his FREEDOM Championship Wrestling colleague with some sort of double leg takedown. Peverell manages to block the attempt and crush Hocking in the back with a double axe handle before pushing him away; Hocking doesn’t give up however and goes in for the attack once again. This time his attempt at a double leg takedown is successful, and Bradford is off his feet and is having trouble advancing from his position back to where he feels comfortable. Meanwhile, Hocking slowly gets off Peverell and then locks in a headlock, blocking the oxygen flow to the brain. After a short struggle, Peverell stands onto his feet and elbows the stomach of Hocking so hard that he lets go. Bradford turns around and strikes Hocking with a right hand before trying to nail him with that devastating left, but Hocking sees it coming and sidesteps it. As Bradford is in mid-lunge, Hocking strikes him with a forearm and then prepares him for a gutwrench suplex, which he hits.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Look at the power of Hocking! Despite the twenty pound weight difference between them, the ‘Shocking’ one has managed to make him look lighter than himself!”


SARA SILVER: “You’re gettin’ a bit excited, ain’t ya? Here, let me get you a tissue so you can clean up after yourself…”


Hocking keeps his hands wrapped around the waist of Bradford, he smiles before standing up and slamming him down with a second gutwrench suplex. ‘Shocking’ holds on for another one and stands up before drilling Bradford with a HUGE gutwrench suplex – throwing him across the ring. Despite the 20 pound weight difference between the two, Hocking displayed his strength with the series of gutwrench suplexes. He covers Peverell, but ‘Hands of Stone’ kicks out at two. Both men get back to a vertical base, and Hocking goes back on the offence once again – trying to prevent Bradford from dropping bombs. He lights up his opponent with a stiff knife-edge chop proceeded by yet another one and then a knee to the gut. Matt scoops up Bradford in an attempt for a bodyslam, but Peverell slips behind him and nails him with a back suplex.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “And folks, that’s one of the few grappling moves you’ll actually see from Peverell. ‘Hands of Stone’ is a straight-forward striker.”


Matt is roughly pulled up onto his feet, and Bradford starts to drill him with a series of right hand jabs. He lines up for the Dream Left Hook but takes too long to prepare the shot and Matt quickly sneaks in and hits a STO – driving the striker down onto the ground. A pinfall attempt immediately follows, but ‘Hands of Stone’ gets the shoulder up at two. The ‘Shocking’ one decides to mix up his offence and makes his way to the southwest corner of the ring. He hops onto the top rope and then leaps off with a flying splash…And it misses! Peverell moves out of the way, just in the nick of time. Hocking eats nothing but canvas and is on his knees clutching his stomach, but he isn’t aware of his surroundings and gets DRILLED with a stiff right hand. Matt starts to back up—clearly rocked from the shot—and manages to stand up, using the ropes in the corner to aid him. Peverell immediately follows and starts to tee off with right uppercuts but starts to receive a series of forearms. All of the forearms being thrown by Hocking connects with the jaw of Peverell and sends him backing into a corner.


SARA SILVER: “Finally! Some exciting action! I mean, look at these two! Tradin’ shots…like real men!”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “I don’t know how many forearms ‘Hands of Stone’ can take…But I don’t know how many right uppercuts Hocking can take either.”


Hocking charges at the cornered Peverell and tries nailing him with a jumping splash of some sorts, but Peverell moves out the way – allowing the ‘Shocking’ one to eat northing but turnbuckle. Matt staggers backwards and Peverell catches him with a running bulldog. ‘Hands of Stone’ walks over to the northeast corner and starts to undo the top turnbuckle whilst Michael Bull is checking on Matt. Peverell succeeds in undoing the top turnbuckle cover and sees a recovered Hocking charging at him, Hocking goes for another flying splash but Peverell moves, causing him to hit the exposed steel turnbuckle. Matt clutches his chest and this gives Peverell enough time to slip off the glove on his left hand. ‘Shocking’ turns around and Bradford hits the Dream Left Hook! He turns Hocking inside out and the power of that punch just showed how much of a danger Peverell’s left hand is. Hocking is basically sprawled out on the canvas as Michael Bull calls an end to the match, giving a knockout victory to Peverell – despite the fact he used somewhat underhanded tactics to get the victory.

Winner: Bradford Peverell [Knockout -> 11’10]


CLIFF ANDERSON: “You gotta be kidding me! What the hell! Peverell basically just cheated!”


SARA SILVER: “Cheatin’? Nah, that’s called usin’ the ring to ya’ advantage.”


Michael raises the arm of Bradford Peverell; and the eight spot for the Chicago Rumble has just been filled. Bradford picks up his left handed glove and puts it back on his left hand before leaving the ring (with his boxing robe). Meanwhile, the ‘Shocking’ one is basically in a seated position with his hand on his head. He doesn’t know where he is and he is complaining of chest pain…We wonder why.


The ring clears out eventually and we get prepared for yet another Chicago Rumble qualifier. Ozzy Osbourne’s “I Don’t Wanna Stop” plays through the P.A. system as the newly crowned Rip Chord Invitational winner of 2010 steps through the curtain. ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith is greeted with a warm welcome and walks down the walkway – slapping the hands of these Chicago fans as he walks by. ‘Bulldozer’ rolls inside the ring and steps into the light, revealing his wrestling attire. His black tights with the initials ‘B.S.’ written in a fancy italic font on the right side and a picture of a bulldozer on the left is seen clearly by all. He is equipped with taped fists and black elbow pads as he gets a run down of the rules from Bret Graveson.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “And there is Mid Atlantic Wrestling’s Rip Chord Invitational winner of 2010: ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith! He won the tournament for the second time last week, and had one of the hardest routes through the tournament Sara.”


SARA SILVER: “Like I care.”


As “I Don’t Wanna Stop” slowly fades out into the background, the eerie sounds of “The Psycho Theme” starts to play. The theme of the famous ‘Psycho’ film gets louder and louder as Brandon’s opponent reveals himself. ‘The Blonde Bomber’ Jerry Martin steps through the curtain, constantly running his hands through his bleach blonde hair – his facial mannerisms were quite strange to say the least. Carrying a steel chair in his right hand and wearing a pair of bloodstained jeans, this mentally unstable individual enters the ring. He places the steel chair in the northwest corner of the ring before being checked over by Graveson and being told the rules. Although he didn’t nod, he just gave a mindless stare towards Smith. Graveson—assuming that Jerry has an understanding of what he just said—calls for the bell and we are off…


CLIFF ANDERSON: “…Graveson better take that chair out of the ring, Jerry Martin looks like he’s going to use it.”


SARA SILVER: “Obviously he is, you freakin’ dumbass.”



Martin explodes out of the corner once the bell is rung and knocks down Smith with a clothesline, he then gets down on his knees and stares at the sky shouting: “It begins! It begins!” over and over again as the crowd just look on, wondering what the hell he is talking about. The psychotic wrestler stands onto his feet and picks up Brandon by his arm and attempts an Irish whip; but the move doesn’t work and he is instead pulled towards the ‘Bulldozer’ and struck with a nasty Clothesline. The clothesline has little effect however as Martin sits up and just stares blankly towards something. His stare is interrupted by a crushing kick from Smith, aimed directly at the head. Martin is immediately pulled towards his feet and sent crashing into the northwest corner where Martin’s steel chair was. Brandon called out for another clothesline, but was stopped before he could even charge at Martin. ‘The Blonde Bomber’ picked up his steel chair and threatened to use it against him. Bret Graveson intervened and was roughly shoved aside as Martin ran at Smith, but instead had his steel chair kicked directly into his own face.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “What a kick! ‘Bulldozer’ may have just knocked Martin’s block off!”




The steel chair drops down onto the canvas and Smith comes up from behind to drive Martin down into the canvas with a Russian leg sweep. A pinfall follows, but Martin kicks out at one. Both men get back to their feet and Martin prevents Graveson from getting rid of the steel chair, but standing on it. He threatens to beat Graveson down if he touches it again and the cowardly ginger haired referee backs up. Martin foresees a clothesline attempt from behind by Smith, ducking it. He comes up from behind and pounds Smith in the back of the head with a right hand before turning him around and hitting a brainbuster. Martin hooks the leg and Graveson (reluctantly) counts the pinfall…One! Two! Brandon gets the shoulder up! Martin lets out a loud scream…“WHAT?!?!” he screams. Martin gets booed by the fans but picks up his steel chair and threatens to strike one of the members of the crowd with it. He throws the steel chair down and runs his hands through his hair…


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Martin…Martin just threatened to hit a fan! He threatened to hit a fan! He’s unstable! Unstable!”


He begins to stalk ‘Bulldozer’ to his feet, and when he does eventually reach his feet – Brandon gets met by a kick to the gut and a DDT. The DDT drives him head-first into the canvas, and lays him out for the moment. Martin once again starts to stalk ‘Bulldozer’ to his feet. ‘The Blonde Bomber’ steps closer and closer as Brandon tries to stand himself up. Martin starts to spin in a clockwise motion… Discus Punch! No, Smith counters and lifts Jerry onto his shoulders and drives him down to the canvas with a Death Valley driver. The ring violently shakes upon impact and Brandon stands up, and now he’s doing the stalking. Martin doesn’t take very long to get up onto his feet, but when he does, he’s scooped up from behind as Brandon goes for the Bulldozer Slam. ‘The Blonde Bomber’ slides down behind his opponent and heads for the steel chair before cracking Smith in the back of the head with it. Graveson (once again reluctantly) makes his call, and calls for the bell. Brandon Smith advances via disqualification.

Winner: Brandon Smith [Disqualification -> 7’43]


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Oh come on!”


SARA SILVER: “Told ya’ it was gonna happen. But noooooo.”


Smith hits the canvas and gets belted with several steel chair shots. Most of the shots are aimed at his upper back and cranium. The chair shots continue to rain down on Smith until Jerry decides he’s had enough. He tosses the steel chair aside and breaks out into a sickening phrase of laughter before calling for a microphone…


JERRY MARTIN: “Hahaha…hahaha…hahahahahaha! Who the hell needs a place in some stupid ‘Chicago Rumble’, when you can have fun dismantling your opponent with a steel chair. Hahahahaha…hahahahahaha! ‘Bulldozer’, you win. I didn’t want the place anyway. All I wanted was to just have some fun…with my weapon of choice. I wish you good luck for later on tonight…if you can make it…hahahahahahahaha!”


Jerry’s laughter fit continues as Smith slowly approaches the all-fours position. He has blood dripping from the back of his head and dying his blonde hair a blood red colour. Graveson calls for some EMT’s to check him over and they come out. Jerry delivers a crushing kick to Smith’s cranium, sending him back to a laying down position before leaving the ring to his eerie “Psycho Theme”. Brandon Smith may of won the match, but some fans are heard questioning whether it was worth the price. He might not even compete tonight…


CLIFF ANDERSON: “What the hell was Martin’s motives? Somebody explain to me, what the hell were his goddamn motives?”


SARA SILVER: “He’s a psychopath. He enjoys people’s sufferin’. Brandon Smith was unlucky enough to be his first victim.”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “That damn Jerry Martin! Brandon might not even compete tonight, with that gash on the back of his head. He might be concussed.”


The EMT’s help Brandon to the back and when he’s out of sight. Eventually, “Superstar” by Saliva hits the sound system and the lights start flickering. After a few seconds, Greg Gauge steps out. Wearing a similar attire to that of his father (the legendary Sam Keith), black tights with his initials on the right side and white knee pads (with the same initials on the pads) along with the same coloured boots. Greg slowly makes his way down to the ring, adjusting his wrist tape and also adjusting his wrestling attire slightly. Gauge cooly slides inside the ring and walks towards the southwest corner, hopping on the second rope and outstretching his arms before dropping down onto the canvas. He walks past Michael Bull, who goes through the rules with him. “Superstar” eventually fades out…


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Ladies and gentlemen, if you do not know who that is. That might possibly be the future of the wrestling world. The son of the legendary Sam Keith is standing in that ring right now. And my god, he’s accomplished so much in his short career. He’s held titles in many companies and has even had a tour with Golden Canvas Grappling in Japan!”


SARA SILVER: “…Anderson, stop sounding like such a nerd. Let me admire his dashing good looks!”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “…B-b-but that’s my job woman!”


…And on comes DMX’s “No Sunshine” as Mario da Silva steps out. His attire consists of taped feet, taped fists, a pair of Venum ‘Edge’ MMA shorts and a TapouT tee. Silva takes off the t-shirt and makes sure he walks past the time keeper’s table, he places down the t-shirt on the table before walking around the ringside area. Silva eventually rolls in and goes towards the northeast corner of the ring and prepares himself whilst Michael Bull makes a point of trying to deliver the rules of the match.


SARA SILVER: “Oh great. Another MMA try-hard. Jesus Christ, when will they all disappear and go to some place where they ain’t needed.”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “I hope you do realise that he’s actually trained in mixed martial arts. But he specializes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which means we should be seeing some pretty innovative submissions from Silva. And anyway folks, this seems like it’s going to be an electric encounter!”



Bull calls for the bell and we are officially off. Greg Gauge approaches the middle of the ring quite quickly whilst da Silva chooses to cautiously move across the ring to the middle. Gauge offers a handshake as Silva quite gladly accepts the act of sportsmanship, however he gets whacked n the middle of the eyes with a right hand. The shot sends him staggering into the corner as Gauge quickly followed up with a couple of kicks to the midsection. The kicks caused Silva to slump down into the corner and allowed the second-generation wrestler to take advantage of the position. Gauge placed his foot on the throat of the mixed martial artist, and pulled himself down whilst using the ropes for leverage. Michael Bull tries to intervene but fails to have any effect on Gauge’s position, so he begins to count. Bull gets to four and reminds Gauge that he has to get off, leading to Greg screaming: “I have ‘til five, a’ight?”, which quite frankly buys him more time. Gauge eventually pulls his foot off the throat of Silva, and lifts him up by the arm. Gauge lights Silva up with a knife-edge chop, the blow echoes throughout the Warehouse and the crowd ‘Woooo!’ just like they would do if it was his father delivering the shots. Silva finally manages to get his first bit of offence in, ducking a knife-edge chop and taking down Gauge with a powerful takedown!




SARA SILVER: “Well of course he never saw it comin’, Jesus Christ I don’t think anybody knew it was comin’.”


Gauge hits the canvas hard as Silva manages to ‘posture up’ and start delivering hammerfists from the top position. Gauge starts to squirm as Silva advances the position into a mount, beginning to tee off with rights and lefts. The crowd are loving every second of this as Gauge wails in agony. Eventually, Gauge is able to roll over on to his stomach, but Silva wraps his legs around the torso of the second-generation wrestler. Greg tries to fight off the rear naked choke attempt, but eventually subdues and is locked in the dangerous submission. Silva tightens the hold, looking to roll over so he has some extra control; Gauge thinks otherwise as he manages roll to the ropes, effectively countering what Silva was about to do. Mario lets go of the hold and the mixed martial artist gets to his feet. Gauge follows, but walks right into a headkick which knocks him back. Silva is quick to go for the arm and tries throwing Gauge over for what we believe is an armbar attempt, but Gauge fights him off and manages to hit a big time suplex.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Suplex! The oh-so simple, yet effective move changes the tide of the match!”


Mario slowly rises from the suplex, and walks right into Gauge’s special snap powerslam. The first pinfall of the match is made and Silva raises the shoulder at two. Both men get back to a vertical base and Mario gets a kick to the midsection and gets locked into a front facelock. The second-generation wrestler raises his arm skywards before twisting Mario in a twisting neckbreaker attempt, but Mario counters and sends Gauge to the ropes. Gauge comes back and ducks a right hand before coming from behind and rolling Mario up. Mario rolls through onto his feet and Greg is left to slowly get up, he soon finds Silva’s arms around his waist. Mario lifts Gauge up, and drops him on his back hard and tries to go for the Kimura but Gauge fights it off and kicks Mario off him. Standing back onto his feet, Gauge manages to foresee a headkick attempt by the mixed martial artist and grabs the right leg, before tripping the left leg up and trying for his Proton Lock. The crowd think it’s over as Gauge calls for it and tries placing his leg in-between both of Mario’s legs, but instead gets pulled down into the Death Triangle!


SARA SILVER: “…Maybe the hottest guy I’ve seen all night so far isn’t cut out for this.”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Death Triangle! Death Triangle! It’s over! It’s over!”


Greg flails wildly as everyone in the crowd starts to chant the words “Tap Out!” over and over again. Silva tightens his hold and the second-generation wrestler is on the verge of tapping, but he manages to get onto his knees and eventually onto his feet. Despite being hunched over, Greg is able to lift da Silva upwards into a powerbomb position and slam him down onto the canvas. Silva doesn’t let go, which forces Gauge to do the same once again. Silva still doesn’t let go. Greg tries once more. He lifts Mario to the sky, and drops the mixed martial artist on the canvas extremely hard, and Silva releases the hold. This gives Greg a chance to lock in the Proton Lock, and he does so at that exact moment. Silva is extremely fast on grabbing the bottom rope once Gauge has it fully locked in, but that doesn’t matter – Gauge pulls him away from the bottom rope and sits back. He cranks on the legs continuously and eventually, with seemingly no way out, da Silva taps out. Greg Gauge advances to the Chicago Rumble, which is being held in roughly half-an-hour.

Winner: Greg Gauge [submission -> 10’00]


The bell rings as Gauge releases the hold. He drops the legs of da Silva on the canvas. After having his hand raised by Michael Bull, Gauge throws both his arms up in victory one more time. With Mario down on the canvas behind him, Greg decides to rub his victory in his face. Gauge screams: “I made you tap out! I made a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner tap out!” He places his foot on the head of Silva, before scraping it across his forehead and leaving the ring. The second-generation wrestler makes his way to the timekeepers table almost immediately and takes the ‘TapouT’ shirt left by Silva on the table, and places it on himself. Realising that it’s a perfect fit, Gauge leaves it on and walks back up the ramp to a chorus of boos.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Beating a man is one thing. Rubbing it in his face that you beat him with his own type of move, is another. But adding insult to injury by taking his shirt, is just ridiculous. You made him ‘tapout’, doesn’t mean you have to take his shirt – which ironically says ‘tapout’ on it.”


SARA SILVER: “I think it looks sexy on him.”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “…You’d say that to anybody who’d give you twenty dollars…”


SARA SILVER: “What the hell are you implyin’?”


The ring is eventually cleared once again and eventually the heavy-metal sounds of “Sex, Drugs, Rock ‘N’ Roll” by Saliva hits the sound system. The sound of the song triggers boos from the crowd as they already know who’s coming out. The wrestler (or wrestlers) coming out are the hottest thing on the circuit. The duo known aas ‘The Awesomeness’ step out in front of a hostile crowd, all of them booing loudly at both Jefferson Stardust and Huey Cannonball. Jefferson is wearing a white boa which compliments his white tights with glitter stars on them and his orange tinted-sunglasses. Stardust is the one leading the duo as he heads to the ring almost immediately, with the blonde Cannonball following. Cannonball is wearing roughly the same attire as his partner but he isn’t wearing a white boa or sunglasses. Both men slide into the ring at the same time, and pause in their laid out positions – they stare at eachother and give an arrogant smile, before hopping up onto their feet and taunting the crowd on opposite turnbuckles. Referee Bret Graveson checks over the rules with the two young wrestlers (as he and Michael Bull have done for the past few matches).


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for some tag team action as we are about to see a clash of two styles. And in the ring right now are two men who are considered the future of wrestling! The Awesomeness—Jefferson Stardust and Huey Cannonball—wrestle a very exciting cruiserweight style, however their arrogance will annoy those watching.”


SARA SILVER: “Arrogance? I would be arrogant if I was that good lookin’, oh wait, I am good lookin’.”


The “Lucha Theme!” which is a production theme created by Original Lucha Libre Is Eternal—or the lucha libre company OLLIE—blasts through the speakers at a high volume. The fans start getting ready for some lucha libre as two masked luchadores walk through the curtain. Mr. Lucha III is the first. Wearing an all black attire with his signature ‘M’ on his tights and on his mask. Following him is Tigre Salvaje (Savage Tiger), who is wearing pleather trousers with several shreds of ‘tiger skin’ on it. The actual pleather trouser is white. His mask is similar to his attire. Both men get cheered by the fans as they slap their hands whilst passing by. The first in the ring is Tigre, who leaps in through the bottom and middle rope. He performs a forward roll onto one knee and spreads his arms out wide. Mr. Lucha meanwhile, opts to slide in. Bret Graveson goes through the rules with both men.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “And there is Lucha Revolución. A newly formed team. Their style is heavily based on the Mexican lucha libre style. Loads of high flying moves will be expected from these masked men.”



Huey Cannonball and Tigre Salvaje decide to kick-start the first ever tag team match in Chicago Championship Wrestling history. Salvaje and Cannonball start to circle around the ring as Salvaje eventually stops and readjusts his attire slightly. Eventually both men return to circling around the ring and soon lock up. Salvaje is quick to slip behind Huey and apply a waistlock. The bleach blonde tries fighting Salvaje off, but cannot do so and resorts to running to the ropes. Huey bounces chest first off the ropes and manages to still stand, however Salvaje is forced to break the hold and perform a backwards roll. Huey turns around and gets caught off guard by Salvaje who had popped up onto his feet quickly. Huey receives a couple of right hand blows before being sent across the ring. Cannonball comes back in an attempt to clothesline Salvaje – the luchadore ducks and slips behind, once again and this time trying to go for his Salvaje Suplex. Huey manages to break out of the hold and apply a headlock, throwing Tigre over with a headlock takeover. Huey smiles as he looks over to his partner and tells him that he’s ‘got this’, but it’s clear he hasn’t when Tigre is able to wrap his legs around his throat and applying some sort of choke. Huey releases his grip and kicks out of the chokehold before kipping up to his feet. Tigre slowly follows and the two begin to trade shots. Huey nails Tigre with a fierce right hand and Tigre responds with the ‘Tiger Strike’, which is basically an open palm strike. Huey staggers to his team corner and tags in Jefferson, Tigre does the same but to Mr. Lucha III.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “The tag is made! In comes Mr. Lucha III and Jefferson Stardust! This should be very interesting.”


Much like their partners in the beginning of the match, both Lucha and Stardust circle the ring before engaging. Both men lock up and are immediately at a stalemate until Jefferson manages to lock in a headlock. He lets out a shout of approval, before tightening his hold. The more experienced Lucha however demonstrates his experience by throwing Stardust over with a back suplex. Stardust is left to roll around on the canvas as Lucha hooks the leg in the first pinfall of the match. Stardust gets the shoulder up relatively early, but it doesn’t leave the luchadore in any form of disappointment. In fact, he pulls Jefferson to his feet and locks him in a front face lock. The third version of the ‘Mr. Lucha’ gimmick snaps back and plants Stardust on the canvas with a DDT, this causes Jefferson to roll out of the ring and get his act together. Inside the ring, Lucha is clapping his hands to a certain rhythm. That rhythm is clapped back by the crowd and the luchadore starts running back and fourth. From north side to south side, he bounces off the ropes, picking up some sort of momentum. When Jefferson turns around, it’s too late…TOPÉ CON HILO! The forward flip dive knocks the young star down – Lucha hops up and runs around the ringside area, slapping all the hands of the fans around the ringside area. Lucha throws Jefferson into the ring and gets inside himself before covering him, neglecting to hook the leg: One! Two! Kickout! Stardust powerfully kicks out and sits up just as Lucha got off him.


SARA SILVER: “He coulda had the victory there, but he failed to hook the leg! Who fails to hook the leg? Jesus Christ, I have lost hope for this promotion.”


Lucha lifts Jefferson onto his feet and delivers a kick to the gut. He calls for something and scoops ‘The Idol’ up. It looks like he’s about to go for a bodyslam, but Jefferson slides down behind and scoops him up into the same position. Lucha tries fighting the move but instead finds his shoulder getting struck with a shoulderbreaker. Lucha screams in agony and Jefferson drives his hands through his hair before delivering a sharp kick to the left shoulder – the shoulder he just performed the shoulderbreaker on. Once again, Lucha screams. Sensing a weak spot, Stardust immediately gets to work on it. He gets the luchadore into a seated position and begins to tear away at the left arm. Stretching it and smashing it with his elbow. The whole effect that the elbow strikes have on the arm, travels up to the shoulder due to the pulling motion that the elbow strikes are forcing the arm to do. He drops the arm and delivers another sharp kick to the shoulder before laying Mr. Lucha on his stomach and leaping in the air. Jefferson drives the knee into the shoulder and rolls him onto his back, hooking the leg. Tigre hops into the ring to break up the pin, but is pushed away after he does so by Bret Graveson. As Tigre tries to get back in the ring to help his partner, Huey Cannonball seizes the chance of hopping in and helping his partner stomp on that possibly now-injured left shoulder. Both men take advantage of Bret Graveson’s prolonged distraction and lift Lucha onto his feet and then into the air, dropping him with a double suplex. Huey sneakily gets back to his corner and Jefferson hooks the leg of Lucha. Graveson turns around and counts the pinfall: One! Two! Thr-Kickout!


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Whether I like it or not, that was some smart strategy by The Awesomeness right there.”


Stardust yells at Graveson to count faster and Graveson just pretends he’s deaf. ‘The Idol’ drags his opponent to his corner and tags in his partner. Both men lift Mr. Lucha up and put him chest first against the turnbuckle. They take turns in smashing his left shoulder-blade with various strikes before Stardust decides to hold Lucha in place. Cannonball meanwhile sprints across the ring and back before leaping in the air and delivering a BIG-TIME dropkick to the left shoulder. Lucha just drops on the canvas and Huey drags him to the middle of the ring before hooking the leg. This of course triggers Tigre to try and get in the ring, but Bret Graveson puts a stop to that. Whilst Graveson is trying to get Tigre Salvaje back on the apron, Stardust hops inside the ring and helps Huey pick up Lucha. They send him across the ring and when he rebounded off the ropes, both men caught him with a double dropkick which they have dubbed ‘Dropkickin’ The Dime’. Lucha hits the canvas hard as Huey hooks the leg, Graveson turns around and slides in for the count: One! Two! Kickout! Lucha kicks out as Huey Cannonball screams at Graveson, shouting at him to count faster. Graveson simply refuses, and that leads to a confrontation between both Cannonball and him. Cannonball shoves him and Graveson doesn’t respond, Cannonball shoves him again and threatens to strike him and he is suddenly rolled up from behind! Lucha comes from behind with the roll up, and Graveson dives but only counts to one as Cannonball kicks out. Both men get to a vertical base and the luchadore makes the first move, striking with his one good arm. Punch, chop, punch. The combo continues like that as Lucha tries his best to make good use of his right arm. However he gets thrown across the ring with an arm drag…which uses his left arm. The third-version of the Mr. Lucha gimmick rolls across the ring and slowly gets to his feet. The bleach blonde Awesomeness member, charges across the ring but runs straight into a kick to the midsection. Lucha runs across the ring and bounces back, hopping onto the shoulders of Cannonball and twisting him around and around and around. Soon enough, he sends Huey flying across the ring with the multiple-revolution headscissors!


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Vintage lucha libre! Multiple revolutions headscissors! That was outstanding!”


SARA SILVER: “Bah, stop getting over-excited.”


With both men down in the ring, the crowd started chanting for Mr. Lucha as he slowly, but surely crawls to his corner. Meanwhile—on the other side—Huey was slowly pulling himself to Jefferson Stardust. Huey makes the tag first and Jefferson gets in the ring and attempts to drag Lucha to the middle of the ring, but gets kicked in the face and Lucha manages to leap to Tigre Salvaje to make the hot tag! Salvaje hops into the ring and immediately takes down Jefferson with a clothesline. Huey Cannonball manages to stand after being the victim of the headscissors and gets slammed down onto the canvas with a tornado DDT. Tigre is arguably on fire and the crowd agree, but his momentum is slowly taken down a few pegs when Stardust counters a Salvaje Suplex attempt. Stardust counters it somehow into a Russian leg sweep, driving Tigre down onto the canvas hard and after that, Jefferson decides it’s time to put this match away. He makes his way to the northwest corner, climbing onto the top turnbuckle and then eagerly awaiting Tigre’s recovery. However, he doesn’t keep his eye on his partner. Mr. Lucha III manages to put a halt to Jefferson’s preparations with his one usable arm. The two trade shots as Stardust begins to pound on the young luchadore, but Lucha turns around and sees his partner running…He ducks, allowing Tigre to hop onto his back and then wrap his legs around the throat of Jefferson and then throw him down to the canvas with a super hurricanrana! Stardust hits the mat hard as Lucha Revolución are the only team standing tall. Lucha—despite his shoulder injury—calls for the ‘Lucha Strike’ as Tigre gladly agrees. Both men lift Jefferson onto his feet and Tigre tries to scoop him up into an electric chair position…but Huey Cannonball throws a spanner in the works and stops Tigre from doing so. He also pushes Mr. Lucha III from the top rope to the outside…


SARA SILVER: “Bye-bye you masked fool. Go on Jefferson and Huey! Seize the opportunity!”


…Lucha hits the floor of the Warehouse hard as both Jefferson and Huey start to slowly beat down on Tigre before dropping him with a double flapjack. The Awesomeness stand up onto their feet right afterwards and look at eachother, both smiling arrogantly. They high-five and make their way to opposite corners, climbing onto the top turnbuckle and pointing at eachother. The leap off…Awesome Splash! No! Tigre moved! Both men hit the canvas instead of Tigre! Taking advantage of the situation, Tigre kicks Huey out of the ring and drags the legal man (Stardust) to the southwest corner. He climbs up to the top rope and leaps off with a Tigre Roll! The high-angled senton bomb crushes Jefferson, but when Mr. Lucha III gets back inside the ring – he ensures that Jefferson goes out with a bang. Tigre once again attempts to lift ‘The Idol’ onto his shoulders and does so. Meanwhile, Lucha prepares himself on the apron. Tigre gets himself nearer to Lucha and Lucha hops onto the top rope, springboarding off onto Jefferson and hits the Third Strike, thus completing the Lucha Strike double team move! Jefferson slams into the ring canvas, causing the whole ring to shake violently as Lucha moves out and allows Tigre to make the cover: One! Two! Three! It’s over!

Winner: Lucha Revolución [Pinfall -> 17’34]


CLIFF ANDERSON: “What a great way to put away your opponent! That move must’ve definitely taken some practice from both men.”


SARA SILVER: “My poor babies. They were robbed Cliff, robbed!”




“Lucha Theme!” starts back up as both Tigre Salvaje and Mr. Lucha celebrate their well-earned victory. Meanwhile, both members of The Awesomeness retreat up the rampway – Jefferson is being pulled up the ramp by Huey and Huey is throwing insults at the luchadores inside the ring as both Lucha and Salvaje don’t take any notice of them.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Once again ladies and gentlemen, what you just saw is a taster of the tag team division here in Chicago Championship wrestling.”


SARA SILVER: “No, what you just witnessed was two good-lookin’ men gettin’ robbed. Robbed!”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Oh will you shut up about that. Well Sara, the night’s almost over. But we got one more match. And ladies and gentlemen, we will be crowning our first CCW World Heavyweight Champion – in just a few short minutes! Ten men…”


SARA SILVER: “…Don’t you mean nine?”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Mark my words, Brandon Smith will be able to participate tonight! He’s a fighter, he never gives up!”


SARA SILVER: “Ha! He gave up when he was taken out by EMT’s.”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “You really need to stop being so offensive. Moving on from your insults…Ten men enter the ring! Titan, Joel Leon, ‘High Roller’ Jason Jordan, ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf, ‘Marvelous’ Marv Statler, ‘The Marksman’ Kirk Jameson, Greg Gauge, Remmy Skye, ‘Hands of Stone’ Bradford Peverell and ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith! It’s Chicago Rumble time!”


SARA SILVER: “Wait! Wait! How does this match even work, is it an over-the-top-rope battle royale?”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “…No. It’s totally different. Ten men enter and one by one they shall be eliminated by pinfall or submission. There are NO disqualifications, which means weapons can be used! I wouldn’t be surprised if nobody used any weapons!”


The whole arena is cleared once again, and the fans eagerly await the first person to enter the ring. The first person turns out to be the giant seven-footer: Titan. Coming out to a remixed version of the “Godzilla Theme”, Titan steps through the curtain and slowly strolls down to the ring and he is wearing a black singlet with black knee pads and black boots. Titan climbs onto the apron and stares at everyone in the Warehouse tonight and he lets out a monster-like roar. He climbs over the top rope and enters the ring, raising his right arm in the air with an open palm.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “That right there folks, that’s the big seven-footer: Titan! The biggest man in the match and the biggest man in the whole company! My guess is every wrestler will try and get him eliminated first.”


SARA SILVER: “**** me, he’s big…and so handsome. There’s my pick! There’s my pick!”


The “Godzilla Theme” slowly fades out and on comes “Iron Man” by Black Sabbath. Two men step through the curtain and it’s the team of ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf and ‘Marvelous’ Marv Statler, collectively known as: The Ring Generals. Both men walk down the ramp and are heavily booed by the fans as their heelish gestures (such as refusing to slap the hands of the fans) irks the fans. Both men enter the ring at precisely the same time and both of them just walk around, preparing themselves for what could possibly happen.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “I spoke about Titan being the biggest in the match and the only big man in the match. Well ladies and gentlemen, Dean Waldorf and Marv Statler are the only tag team in the match. This should be really interesting.”


Both men discuss their game plan as “It Ain’t Nothin’” by Cypress Hill begins to blast through the sound system. The heavy bass is causing the ring to shake a bit and out comes the Chicago Championship Wrestling owner, Joel Leon. Leon charges down to the ringside area and rolls inside the ring, before continuously keeping up his ridiculous pace and stopping in the middle of the ring, he adjusts his green and white wrestling attire before staring at the seven-footer and then at the scheming tag team.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Could our first CCW World Heavyweight Champion be our owner? Joel Leon may have all the tools in this match. The skill, the cardio, the ability to switch up his styles and the fighting spirit. That’s my pick right there Sara.”


SARA SILVER: “You’re clearly picking him so you get a pay rise, aren’t ya?”


Out next is ‘High Roller’ Jason Jordan. Wearing a black suit and tie, the millionaire strolls down to the ring to the sounds of “I Have To Have It” by Jermaine Dupri. He stops when he touches the ringside area and just stares at all the men in the ring so far. He starts to undress from his suit, revealing a ‘dollar’ coloured green attire. Jordan walks around ringside for a while revealing more of his attire. On the back of his short tights and on the front of his kneepads, there is a dollar. On that dollar is Jordan’s face.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Continuing the ‘only’ theme, Jason Jordan is the only millionaire in the ring right now.”


SARA SILVER: “…Millionaire? Millionaire?”


Jordan opts to stay on the outside of the ring whilst “Weapon of Choice” by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club hits the sound system. After several seconds of waiting, out steps ‘The Marksman’ Kirk Jameson, wearing a dark blue singlet – with the straps down. Kirk pulls the straps over his shoulders on his way down to the ring and slides in, immediately making eye contact with Titan.


SARA SILVER: “Who the hell is this guy? He looks like a total douchebag…”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “That Sara is Kirk Jameson. A remarkable master of the technical style mind you. And out next, the four men who gained entry into the match!”


“Modest” by Peroxwhy?gen is the calling for Remmy Skye as ‘Psyche Out’ steps through the curtain and starts jumping up and down. Wearing the same attire as he was for his match, Skye runs down to the ring, sliding in and making his way to the corner, immediately leaping on the second turnbuckle. He places his hands in a peace motion to his face before leaping down.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Remmy Skye! The first man to qualify for the final four spots earlier on. He beat Nomad with an excellent counter!”


“Superstar” by Saliva comes on and Greg Gauge steps out, with a totally different attire than the one he wore earlier. He’s wearing short tights, coloured red and with his initials on them. He’s wearing the ‘TapouT’ shirt that he stole from Mario da Silva earlier in the night. Gauge gets a hostile response from the crowd as he starts tugging on the t-shirt. He enters the ring and doesn’t take it off, instead he starts to taunt everyone in the ring.


SARA SILVER: “Ha! He’s still wearing the shirt!”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “That damn Greg Gauge. A man of no respect! No respect I tell ya!”


The lights in the Warehouse soon turn dim as steam engulfs the stage area. “Time 4 Sum Aksion” by Redman hits and out comes ‘Hands of Stone’ Bradford Peverell. Wearing the same attire as earlier, Peverell comes out without his jacket. The crowd boo him heavily as he just flips them off with the one-fingered salute. The holder of the dangerous left-hand enters the ring and stops in the middle of it, looking up into the sky and pointing in the air. He pulls out his black glove and places it over his left hand before bringing it back down and beginning to make enemies.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “And there he is. ‘Hands of Stone’. Bradford Peverell. I mean, how he got to this stage was underhanded. But damn it, he does possess a dangerous left hand.”


SARA SILVER: “Well, I guess that’s it.”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Don’t say that Silver…”


The ring announcer informs us that ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith has been replaced due to injury. The crowd boo heavily as the “Psycho Theme” starts up. The crowd start to boo even louder and even throw rubbish onto the stage area as the ‘Blonde Bomber’ Jerry Martin steps out. Holding the steel chair he used to beat down on Brandon Smith with—thus causing injury—Martin is sickly smiling. He stops in the middle of the walkway and gets into an argument with a fan, but soon gets taken out from behind by someone…wait…IT’S BRANDON SMITH! Wearing the same attire as earlier with the addition of a bandage around his forehead, Smith goes to town on Martin and eventually gives him the Bulldozer Slam onto the arena floor. Jerry Martin hits the canvas with a loud thud as Smith stands up and starts hurling abuse at the ‘Blonde Bomber’ as he is down and out. Smith turns his attention to the ring and charges down to ringside, sliding in, and immediately picking a fight with ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf…The ring descends into chaos seconds later…


CLIFF ANDERSON: “It’s on! He’s here! Brandon Smith has started the Chicago Rumble! Ladies and gentlemen, sit tight, this is going to be a match to remember!”


CCW World Heavyweight Championship Match


As Brandon Smith begins to take it to Waldorf, he gets jumped from behind by ‘Marvelous’ Marv Statler as he helps his partner dish out a beating on the ‘Bulldozer’. Meanwhile on the other side of the ring, every other wrestler is trying to take out the biggest man in the match. Titan is seen swiping all-comers to the side with his humungous arm. Eventually he is forced to start slamming some of them. Kirk Jameson tries taking down the giant with a cross body and gets caught. Titan throws him recklessly to the outside with a fallaway slam, sending him crashing onto the arena floor. Both of the Ring Generals turn their focus onto the giant, but both get levelled and nearly decapitated by a double clothesline. The seven-footer is already making a statement and he prepares to make more of a statement – he picks up the millionaire—Jason Jordan—and lifts him above his head. Titan pretends to bench press the wrestler over his head and then throws him over the ropes and onto Kirk Jameson on the outside with a gorilla press slam. The crowd don’t know what to think of the seven-foot Titan as he is just clearing house. Once again, Titan has to deal with a swarm of wrestlers charging at him and he deals with them with ease. All of them get knocked to the outside except one. Greg Gauge walks right into a big boot from the giant and then finds himself in a dangerous position. Titan hoists up the second-generation wrestler and slams him down with the Titanic Chokeslam! The ring shakes violently as Titan stands and lets out a animalistic roar before placing his foot on the chest of Gauge and picking up the three!


ELIMINATION #1: Greg Gauge by Titan via Titanic Chokeslam (5’10)


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Oh my god! Five minutes into the match and we already have an elimination! Greg Gauge ends up being eliminated first and Titan may possibly be lining up several other eliminations.”


Titan is the only figure in the ring. He leans ominously over the top rope, trying to pick up somebody and drag them into the ring. He grabs a hold of Kirk Jameson’s singlet and roughly tries to pull him back into the ring. However both Ring Generals come out of nowhere—with steel chairs—and smashes Titan’s skull with them. Titan releases his grip of Jameson and drops down onto the canvas, with his hands covering his head. Joel Leon slyly slides into the ring, and tries to cover Titan to the delight of the crowd but is intercepted by ‘High Roller’ Jason Jordan. The two trade several shots and eventually the millionaire drives his knee into Leon’s midsection. Leon hunches over and gets placed between the legs of Jordan as he pulls back, lifting Leon onto his shoulders. A powerbomb attempt goes awry as Leon counters it and drops behind before running to the ropes behind Jordan. Jordan turns around and ducks a clothesline from Leon, but the Chicago Championship Wrestling owner follows through and LEAPS over the top rope with a corkscrew plancha which he likes to call the J-Missile and it knocks down everyone on the outside! Jason Jordan is left inside the ring as a rising Titan has him in his sight. Jordan tries to prolong Titan rising to his feet, but can’t seem to do so as he does eventually. The seven-footer wraps his massive right hand around the throat of Jordan and the millionaire won’t be lifted up without kicking and screaming. Titanic Chokeslam—No! Jordan slips behind and performs a low blow, once again utilizing the ‘No Disqualifications’ stipulation of the match.


SARA SILVER: “No matter how big you are. No matter how small you are. The balls will always slow down a man.”


Titan slowly drops down onto one knee as the ring starts to become repopulated. The crazy all-out brawl continues as some of the men in the ring are stomping on the fallen giant, whilst some are choosing to beat on eachother and the Ring Generals are just double teaming anyone they can find. Remmy Skye is one of their victims as they beat down on him with several punches and kicks before throwing him halfway across the ring with a massive hip toss. Skye hits the ring mat hard as both ‘Marvelous’ Marv and ‘Deadly’ Dean high-five. Both men however are knocked down by a missile dropkick from the near 280-pound ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith. Smith clearly doesn’t care about his wound that was inflicted upon him earlier opening up as he is going right in the action. Much like Titan earlier on in the match, Brandon is starting to clear house. He stiffly chops anyone in the vicinity and even drops Joel Leon with a massive lariat, sending him over the top rope. ‘The Marksman’ side-swipes Smith with a kick to the right arm. Kirk continues to kick away at the same arm for another few seconds before slamming Smith down with an armbreaker variant. ‘The Marksman’ begins his signature style of picking apart the body and eventually locks in a scissored version of the armbar. Brandon is trapped, but doesn’t tap. Instead he tries using his superior strength to lift Kirk, despite him being on his arm. Smith soon lifts his opponent and slams him down – neck first. Kirk lets go of the hold and rolls to the outside. Almost immediately Smith sets his sights on one of his many opponents. Jason Jordan is still laying boots into Titan, but turns around and gets knocked down by a brutal shoulder block from the former college football player! Marv Statler and Dean Waldorf try and double team ‘Bulldozer’, but after ducking a double clothesline, Smith lifts up Statler from behind and hits a Bulldozer Slam! He sends Waldorf crashing to the outside and covers ‘Marvelous’ Marv, getting the three!


ELIMINATION #2: ‘Marvelous’ Marv Statler by ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith after a Bulldozer Slam (9’44)


SARA SILVER: “There goes the tag team! Only one Ring General is surviving in this match.”


…On the outside, Dean Waldorf is trying to find his feet as he has yet to realise that his partner has been eliminated. Nonetheless, he engages in a brawl with Joel Leon (who just recovered from his gutsy J-Missile). Dean greets the CCW Owner with a kick to the gut and then a suplex onto the hard flooring of the Warehouse floor – and the loud thud echoes through the arena, effectively showing that there’s no give in the floor. ‘The Second City Saint’ screams loudly as his fellow Illinoisian laughs loudly. Though the laughter stops when Remmy Skye leaps from the apron onto Waldorf with a springboard moonsault. Waldorf takes a fall to the floor, whilst Remmy is still standing. Back inside the ring, Kirk Jameson has just re-entered and is trying to pick apart the right arm of ‘High Roller’ Jason Jordan. Using various arm-related moves such as the arm wringer, armbar and armbreaker and he directed strikes towards the right arm. Jordan counters an armbar by rolling through and starts unleashing hell on Jordan with a bunch of rapid-fire strikes. Eventually, Jordan slams Kirk down on the canvas with a sitout powerbomb which he likes to call the ‘Moneybomb’. He goes for the pinfall, but gets a two. Jordan stands onto his feet and as some men are brawling around the outside of the ring, some are entering. Remmy Skye is one of the men entering as he is climbing up the top rope. ‘High Roller’ turns towards Skye and ‘Psyche Out’ makes his move, leaping off with a high cross body block! Both men hit the canvas, but Skye is the only one seemingly unharmed by the move. Kirk Jameson tries gaining some momentum by trying to take out Skye, but he gets kicked in the gut and hit with the Psyche Out! Skye hooks the leg and gets the three, eliminating ‘The Marksman’ from the match.


ELIMINATION #3: ‘The Marksman’ Kirk Jameson by ‘Psyche Out’ Remmy Skye after a Psyche Out (11’55)




Kirk is rolled out of the ring by Skye who follows him out. With seven men remaining (Titan, Joel Leon, Remmy Skye, Jason Jordan, Dean Waldorf, Brandon Smith and Bradford Peverell), Skye is seemingly the only one not resting as most of the mini-brawls on the outside seemingly dying down. Skye tears open the ring skirt and looks underneath before pulling out his signature weapon…a ladder. Skye chucks it into the ring and enters before colliding with ‘Hands of Stone’ Bradford Peverell. Peverell makes his first bit of offence in this match, striking Skye with a series of right jabs and dancing around him whilst doing so. However, the flashy striker gets nailed from behind by Jason Jordan and his neckbreaker. Jordan stands up afterwards, only to get struck by a ladder. Remmy Skye starts to lay waste to anyone in vicinity of the ladder. He knocks Titan back down onto the canvas with a wicked shot and then knocks Joel Leon off the apron and onto the guard rail with another. ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf enters the ring and ducks a shot from the ladder and follows through. He rebounds back and using the momentum dropkicks the ladder causing Skye to topple over. With the ladder on top of Skye, Waldorf leaps and lands a senton on the ladder thus crushing Skye underneath. Waldorf rolls off the ladder and places his hand on his back, he lets out a roar of pain which echoes through the Warehouse. We are nearing the fifteen minute mark of the match and the crowd are just eating up the action.


SARA SILVER: “Aaaaand that’s what happens when you decide to bring a ladder into the match.”


‘Deadly’ Dean sluggishly gets to his feet and manages to yank Remmy Skye to his feet by his arm. Waldorf places his head between his legs and attempts to go for the Waldorf Salad Toss, but Skye delivers a double axe handle to the small of the back – causing Dean to lower slightly. Skye pushes Dean from underneath him and places him into a nearby corner, he sets him up on the top turnbuckle. Meanwhile, Titan is on the outside and is trading shots with Joel Leon. Leon tries his best to affect Titan, but finds himself getting tossed into a nearby guardrail like a ragdoll. ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith resurfaces in the match and charges at Titan and he leaps onto his chest, trying to get him to topple – but he gets caught and Titan crushes him between his chest and the turnbuckle post. Titan withdraws from ringside and enters the ring. Remmy Skye notices this and slows down the process, picking up a ladder and driving it RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES of Titan! The seven-footer drops down from the apron and rests himself on the guard rail. Skye returns his focus onto Dean Waldorf, who is still sitting on the top turnbuckle. Skye places the ladder nearby and climbs onto the second rope and attempts to superplex Waldorf. Waldorf starts showing signs of life, but gets seemingly knocked unconscious by an open-palm slap. ‘Psyche Out’ once again prepares for a superplex onto the ladder, but suddenly Nomad enters the ring! Dressed in the same attire as earlier, Nomad strikes Remmy in the back and then lifts him in a back suplex motion. He unhurriedly makes his way to the laid-out ladder and hits the Drift Shift on it! Skye lands on the ladder—back first—and the collision of flesh and steel echoes through the Warehouse. Nomad makes a hasty retreat through the crowd and runs through the bar area, leaving Remmy laying on the ladder. ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf starts to come around and realises that Remmy is laying on the ladder. Deciding to seize the opportunity, Waldorf stands on the top turnbuckle, steadying himself for something big…He springs up into the air and comes down with the Chicago Elbow Drop! Waldorf’s elbow bounces off the ribcage of Remmy Skye and drives Skye further into the ladder. He quickly jumps onto Remmy for the pinfall and gets the three, eliminating Skye!


ELIMINATION #4: ‘Psyche Out’ Remmy Skye by ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf after a Chicago Elbow Drop (18’26)


CLIFF ANDERSON: “That bastard! That rat bastard! He screwed Remmy Skye! He screwed Remmy Skye!”


As Michael Bull ushers Remmy Skye out of the ring – the six men come together in the ring. Some of them have done much and some of them have been involved in most of the match. The seven-footer Titan, Joel Leon, Jason Jordan, the man with the ‘dream left-hook’ Bradford Peverell, ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf and ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith all look at one another. ‘Bulldozer’ has a little bit of blood trickling down the back of his head from under his bandage that is wrapped around his forehead – this was most probably due to him being slammed against the turnbuckle post. Without warning, Bradford Peverell makes the first move; pouncing on Jason Jordan. Leon follows suit, grappling with Waldorf and eventually nailing him with a brainbuster. ‘Bulldozer’ and Titan start to brawl as well. The main focus is on the injured wrestler and the seven-footer as Titan grabs Brandon and tosses him into a corner and he begins to tee off on him with uppercuts and punches. Brandon manages to return the favour in a big way, stunning Titan with a series of forearm shots before running to the ropes and hitting him with a HUGE shoulder block. Despite it not knocking down Titan, it causes him to stumble. At the same time, ‘Deadly’ Dean has turned the tables on Joel Leon and has him up and slams him down with the Waldorf Salad Toss. ‘The Second City Saint’ folds up like an accordion and Waldorf tries for the pinfall, he doesn’t get the three however as Jason Jordan breaks up the pinfall with an elbow drop. Jordan ascends to the top rope straight afterwards and awaits Waldorf’s ascent to a vertical base. Jordan continues to wait, but gets blindsided by Bradford Peverell – who recklessly throws a ladder like a javelin at him, the ladder tumbles to the outside. Jordan gets crotched on the top rope as a result and Waldorf looks to take advantage of his vulnerable position, but gets KO’d by a Dream Left Hook by Peverell before he can even do so. Peverell covers him and gets the three, despite the hook being with the glove on.


ELIMINATION #5: ‘Deadly’ Dean Waldorf by ‘Hands of Stone’ Bradford Peverell after a Dream Left Hook (21’00)


SARA SILVER: “What a shot! He really has got ‘Hands of Stone’. But I mean, lookin’ at the way the match has broken down, I don’t know who could be next.”


Waldorf gets rolled out of the ring by Michael Bull whilst simultaneously Brandon Smith is trying his best to knock down Titan. Everybody soon puts their issues aside in an attempt to get the giant off his feet (except for Jordan). Peverell starts delivering some of his right hooks, but none of them do anything to the giant. It’s the same case for Brandon’s forearm strikes and Leon’s kicks. In the course of time, Titan starts to fight back. The now pissed-off giant starts throwing clubbing blows to the backs of all and starts throwing people around. Joel Leon avoids the giant’s offence and manages to go downstairs with the low blow. Leon calls for the J-Ploder, but he cannot even lift the seven-footer due to the huge weight difference. Titan clubs Leon with a double axe handle and tries going for the Titanic Chokeslam, but Leon twists behind him. Leon turns around and gets a Dream Left Hook! This time he had the glove off and this time it looks like he’s hit it properly. The force of the move causes Leon to crumple to the canvas and the CCW owner gets eliminated after failing to kick out after three…


ELIMINATION #6: Joel Leon by ‘Hands of Stone’ Bradford Peverell after a Dream Left Hook (23’42)


‘Hands of Stone’ begins to celebrate as the CCW owner is rolled to the outside by Michael Bull and he soon makes his way up the walkway. There are four men left inside the ring, and Brandon Smith has suddenly taken charge of the match. He delivers a crushing blow to Bradford Peverell and goes for the Bulldozer Slam, Peverell slips down behind and attempts to go for the Dream Left Hook. Brandon performs a sway to the left and scoops up Peverell whilst he’s still in his stride. The crowd don’t know what’s going to happen, but they soon find out…Inverted Piledriver! Peverell’s head bounces off the apron, but before ‘Bulldozer’ can make the pinfall Titan grabs him by the throat…Titanic Chokeslam! The ring violently shakes and before Titan can even make the pinfall, Jason Jordan comes back into the match, leaping off the top rope, taking Titan for a trip To The Bank! The diving uppercut collides with the jaw of the giant as he starts staggering around the ring. Jordan manages to stand and tries going for the Cash In, but a still-alert Titan pushes him off before he could hit it. Jordan crashes down onto the canvas and stands up—groggy—he walks into a big boot which is then followed by a Titanic Chokeslam! Jordan gets violently slammed down with force and Titan makes the cover getting the three…


ELIMINATION #7: ‘High Roller’ Jason Jordan by Titan after a Titanic Chokeslam (26’09)


CLIFF ANDERSON: “What a exciting series of events! Culminating with the elimination of the millionaire! We are down to three, I repeat, we are two eliminations away from crowning a new CCW World Heavyweight Champion!”


Brandon Smith stirs, he looks up and places his hand on his forehead. He pulls off the bandage revealing the wound at the back of his head. It’s started to bleed more profusely as Michael Bull continuously asks him whether he’s okay. Smith nods and tells him not to worry, but soon both men become worried. Titan walks over and lifts up Smith by his now blood-red coloured hair. He wraps his massive right-hand around the throat of the ‘Bulldozer’. Smith is powerless, the two-time Rip Chord Invitational winner has realised his fate and can’t do anything to stop it. Though like a bat out of hell, Bradford Peverell’s Dream Left Hook connects with the jaw of Titan. Titan releases his grip of Smith and staggers back, Peverell pushes on. The flurry of shots continue as Titan continues to back away around the ring, but ‘Hands of Stone’ keeps pushing. The crowd—for the first time—are actually cheering the striker and eventually Titan finds himself trapped in the southwest corner, with Peverell continuously just teeing off on him. The shots soon lose their effectiveness and Titan explodes out of the corner and clobbers Peverell with a clothesline. A huge headbutt follows and then Peverell has his fate sealed by the Titanic Chokeslam, there’s no questions here, Titan gets the pinfall to eliminate him.


ELIMINATION #8: ‘Hands of Stone’ Bradford Peverell by Titan after a Titanic Chokeslam (28’59)


SARA SILVER: “Well, well, well. It’s down to the final two. Titan has been dominant now for most of the match…”


CLIFF ANDERSON: “But don’t count out Brandon Smith, Sara. Don’t ever do it.”


Smith slowly rises to his feet and gets struck by a right hand from Titan. Titan then whips him across the ring and tries for a big boot, ‘Bulldozer’ hangs onto the ropes and then charges at Titan. He tries to score with a lariat, but the hard-hitter just can’t knock Titan down. It doesn’t even leave a scratch on the seven-footer. Titan once again sends Smith across the ring with an Irish whip as Smith comes back to a HUGE sidewalk slam. Once the seven-footer reaches his feet, the whole crowd look on, they know what’s coming next. The giant begins to stomp his feet and roar. Smith stirs. With blood now turning his hair a darker shade of red and gushing down his back, he’s a bit more dazed than before. He rises onto his feet and walks into Titan as Titan lifts him up for the Titanic Chokeslam. Brandon manages to somehow drop down behind the giant and he attempts the Bulldozer Slam. He can’t lift him. Titan manages to shove ‘Bulldozer’ away but Smith comes back, slipping behind him and trying for yet another Bulldozer Slam. He won’t budge. The weight difference is possibly too much for Smith and he retreats. Titan takes control, scooping up Brandon and slamming him down on the canvas. Titan calls for the devastating move that has put away three men in this match and is looking to put away a fourth. Smith once again stands and walks right into Titan. Titan lifts him up for the Titanic Chokeslam, but yet again Brandon slips down behind him and tries lifting him up from behind. Smith tries his hardest, he puts all of his strength into it and eventually does lift the giant off his feet…Bulldozer Slam! The ring shakes and Brandon throws his arm over the chest of Titan…One! Two! Three! We have our first CCW World Heavyweight Champion!

Winner and New CCW World Heavyweight Champion: ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith by last eliminating Titan [Pinfall -> 32’33]


The crowd throw their hands up in celebration as Smith reaches an all-fours position. Michael Bull grabs the CCW World Heavyweight title belt from the timekeepers table and rolls inside the ring, handing it to an exhausted Brandon Smith…


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Ladies and gentlemen, he did it! Call your neighbours, call your friends, Brandon Smith has won the CCW World—by god—Heavyweight title!”




CLIFF ANDERSON: “Sara, shut up. You know what, give the man respect. He’s had the hardest route out of all these men. For one, he was legitimately injured during his match by his opponent. He entered the match after being doubted to even be a participant in it and won the title! He lifted up a near-four hundred pound man to finish it too! How can you not find that impressive?”


Brandon finally stands up onto his feet and he lifts the belt in the air. The ‘Bulldozer’ then drops down onto his knees. He strokes his hands through his bloody hair and looks into the belt – he smiles, knowing that he is the first CCW World Heavyweight Champion.


CLIFF ANDERSON: “Well, ladies and gentlemen – thank you for buying this DVD! And we hope you shall join me…and Sara Silver for another show! Good night!”


The show comes to an end with Smith gazing into the belt…

Interesting writeup style. Are you going to show us the match ratings in a later post?


And I hope you wanted to make me HATE Sara Silver. Because after that first show, I want to strangle her. Poor Cliff.


Also, BBS is the champ! That's my boy!

After 'The Beginning'


“You think it was a good show?” asked Curt O’Malley as we were driving ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith to the emergency room downtown. His hand was located on the back of the head of Brandon, with a blood-red towel covering the wound inflicted earlier by Jerry Martin…


“I guess it was…I mean the crowd were in to it…Extremely in to it.” I replied. At this time, Brandon Smith is just letting out a moan of pain. Curt begins dabbing the wound, but that just makes the moan’s louder…


“Do you have to dab it? It actually hurts more when you do it…” asked Brandon as he lets out more moans of pain.


“Wuss.” That is what O’Malley calls Brandon and needless to say, our World Heavyweight Champion doesn’t take the comment nicely…In fact he calls O’Malley something, causing Curt to laugh out loud.


“Hey Brandon!”




“How does it feel to be the first World Heavyweight Champion?”


Ow! Sorry, repeat that?” Smith looks directly at O’Malley as he continues to dab the wound, soaking up the blood. O’Malley tells him that he’s doing it to keep the blood off his clothes.


“How does it feel to be the first World Heavyweight Champion?”


Ow! I guess it’s good. Ow!—Will you stop dabbing already? Yeah, it’s good, I mean come on, I might be the greatest World Champion you’ve ever had…”


“We’ll see about that Brandon. Haha!” says O’Malley as he dabs once more, this time extremely hard, causing Brandon to let out a moan that could possibly be heard outside of the sedan.


“Alright Curt—seriously—stop it. Best World Heavyweight Champion? Yeah, as Curt said, we’ll see about that.”


The car pulled up on the kerb of the emergency room and ‘Bulldozer’ bundled out of the car and immediately ran for the automatic doors. He ran out of site down to the reception leaving me and O’Malley in the car.



“So…You actually thought the show was good?” said O’Malley.


“Totally. I mean come on, the fans went home entertained – that’s all I set out to do.” I responded.


“I guess you’re right. Just curious, how did you rate the event?”


“…How did I rate it?”


Nomad versus Remmy Skye – D+

Bradford Peverell versus Matt Hocking – D+

Brandon Smith versus Jerry Martin – D+

Greg Gauge versus Mario da Silva – D+

Lucha Revolución versus The Awesomeness – D

Chicago Rumble – D+


Overall – D


“Hm, it seems like you’re moving up. For a first show, I guess you rating it slightly average is a step in the right direction.”


“You’re damn right it is.” I smiled straight after saying that, knowing full well that our next show could possibly top ‘The Beginning’ in every single way.


“…Hey Joel…Have you ever thought of making ‘working agreements’?”


“Working agreements?”


“You know, with another promotion. Trading wrestlers and such…”


“Oh, that. No I actually have not. Why you askin’?”


“It might be a way to get exposure in different countries and different states. It’s just a suggestion.”


“Hm, I might consider that. So where are you heading Curt, I can’t possibly be sat out here all night waiting for Brandon to step out…”


“Hit the bar?”


“Best thing I’ve heard in ages. Let’s roll.”


I drove off the kerb and made my way to the nearest bar, to celebrate a successful first show.

Chicago Championship Wrestling Proudly Presents


Saturday, Week Three, February 2010 – The Warehouse, Chicago, Illinois


Chicago Championship Wrestling returns to ‘The Warehouse’ complex in the downtown area, and we have an excellent show lined up. ‘Bulldozer’ Brandon Smith—the newly crowned CCW World Heavyweight Champion—shall take on the man who injured him at ‘The Beginning’: ‘The Blonde Bombshell’ Jerry Martin. Martin busted Smith open and continued to strike him with a steel chair during their match. Martin tried taking Smith’s place in the ‘Chicago Rumble’, but ended up getting attacked by Smith. Smith reclaimed his place and ended up becoming the first CCW World Heavyweight Champion. Will his title reign end on his first defence?


Also in action, ‘The Marksman’ Kirk Jameson takes on ‘Trademark’ Thomas Morgan in a match which promises to be a technical affair. Thomas Morgan, who is making the trip from Canada, looks to put away Jameson with the STF – but Jameson looks to tear apart Morgan’s body and force him to submit to any submission he can. Who will be the victor here?


‘The Teen Dream’ Brendan Idol is looking to make an impressive debut by defeating the millionaire ‘High Roller’ Jason Jordan. Jordan is coming off an impressive performance in the Chicago Rumble and despite not winning, he made a statement. Will he be able to with Idol as his opponent?


Elsewhere, Nomad will be looking to score his first victory after disappointment at ‘The Beginning’. The grunge-rocker will team with Greg Gauge to take on the team of Remmy Skye and Mario da Silva. Both men have scores to settle with Nomad and Gauge, but will they be able to settle the score?


Finally, in our opening contest, Running Wolf will take on Dean Waldorf in a singles match. With ‘Marvelous’ Marv Statler not far behind, can Wolf fight them both off
