“You want to what?”


‘Raw Sex’ Dexter Mattell (it hadn't been his idea) was quite prepared to admit that he didn't know Vance Sturt all that well- after all, Dex had been in the business less than a year, and was pretty easy to surprise in any case- but even so, this was pretty big news.



“It’s not ‘want to’, mate- I'm going to open my own company. Waddaya reckon to that, eh?”


Coming from some of the other veterans he’d known, this wouldn't have been remarkable- Stubbsy maybe, or Ollie Freedman- but Vance was just about the last person Dex would have expected to open a promotion of his own, even if he wasn't quite the thug he appeared to be.


“Honestly, Vance? Ask me again when I've had time to process it. I mean, no offence but you ain't exactly Manny Marx or McMinister, are you?”


Vance grimaced and spat, an act that would've been disgusting anywhere but the car park of Track Records in Darwin, possibly the scuzziest place in the whole of Australia’s wrestling scene. As it was, it merely underlined why Vance was nobody’s idea of a professional promoter


“F*ck McMinister, mate, that’s all I can say. Prat wouldn’t know how to run a company if it bit him on the @rse, that’s why those clowns at RAW are running the show. Nah, I’m talking about setting a proper wrestling company, like those shows the Bloke Channel puts out on Sunday night.”


“So what, you want to bring the Texas Wrestling League or Championship Wrestling from Boston to Australia?”


“Why not? You talk to anyone, those shows pull in big numbers. Gotta be some fans out there for something a little more old school, right? Proper serious wrestling, but something you can take a kid to without traumatising ‘em.”


“And you think you’re the man to bring it to them?”


“Why not? It’s not like I'm short of dough, is it?”


That at least Dexter knew to be true. Vance wasn't much more than a modest success in wrestling terms but he and his brother managed half the public events in Australia, and made a pretty packet out of it to boot.


“Fair enough I suppose. Just remember my name when you’re putting the roster together, okay? I could do with regular work.”


“Shouldn't be a problem, mate, seein’ as I want you running the book for me.”


And Dex had thought all the major surprises were already over in this conversation.


“No offence Vance mate, but are you totally mental? I've not been in this business a year and you want me booking a major wrestling company?”


“What’s the problem with that? I've seen you work the indies Dex, you know more about putting a show together than most of these clowns. Besides, this way I make headlines and get an extra wrestler into the bargain without ‘avin to pay extra, don't I?”


Dex had to admit that, when he put it like that, Vance sounded more like a promoter than he’d thought.


“Okay, I'll take the job- I just want to go on record, though, as saying that I never asked to take on the booking, so don’t go blaming me if things go wrong, okay?”


“What’s gonna go wrong Dex? With you and me behind it, Kingdom Championship Class Wrestling’s gonna go far”


“That’s what you’re gonna call it? Really?”


“And what’s wrong with that?”


“Oh, nothing, nothing”

<em>From the diary of Dexter Mattell:</em></p><p> </p><p>

Got the roster properly sorted out yesterday. Vance seemed okay with it- we’ve got more than a few guys who’ve been through ZEN on our books, but Halloween Knight knows a thing or two about training guys up and they’re the most promising young workers out there right now. Vance has just asked me to make sure I’m clear on all the details for them so I can pass the details onto whoever does the ring announcing on our first show.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="font-size:18px;">Main Eventers</span></span></strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<a href="http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Looneyboyo/media/KCCW/Tombstone.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g165/Looneyboyo/KCCW/Tombstone.jpg</span></a></p><p>


<strong>Age:</strong> 23 <strong>Billed From:</strong> Sydney, New South Wales</p><p>

<strong>Entrance Music:</strong> Thunderstruck- AC/DC</p><p>

<strong>Finisher:</strong> Rear Naked Choke</p><p>

We bought Tombstone across from DIW, where he’s one of their hottest young prospects. He’s a really good technician, very capable in the brawl, and has an air of legit toughness that helps him get over with most Aussie wrestling fans. He could stand to improve his psychology, though, and I don’t see him going near a mic any time soon. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>John Gordon</strong></p><p>

<strong>Age:</strong> 24 <strong>Billed From:</strong> Christchurch, New Zealand</p><p>

<strong>Entrance Music:</strong> Ashes to Ashes- David Bowie</p><p>

<strong>Finisher:</strong> Goatee Driver (Double Underhook Piledriver)</p><p>

John’s one of the four or five guys we brought across from ZEN, and whilst I don’t know that he’s definitely the best of them he’s certainly makes a good case for deserving that accolade. He’s solid in the brawl and on the ground, has good fundamentals and enough star quality to make up for his complete lack of mic skills. I’m not sure quite where we’ll go with John, but I do see him being a key player for us going forward.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<a href="http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Looneyboyo/media/KCCW/BooSmithson.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g165/Looneyboyo/KCCW/BooSmithson.jpg</span></a></p><p>

<strong>Boo Smithson</strong></p><p>

<strong>Age:</strong> 34 <strong>Billed From:</strong> Brisbane, Queensland</p><p>

<strong>Entrance Music:</strong> Spicks and Specks- The Bee Gees</p><p>

<strong>Finisher:</strong> Crossface Chickenwing</p><p>

Boo’s probably the best wrestler in Australia, and when you consider that he’s never got within sniffing distance of the APW main event you start to see why Vance doesn’t like James McMinister so much. Our biggest star and certainly our best worker, Boo’s number one choice for the top belt at the moment, even if the man’s even worse on the mic than either Tombstone or John (at least they don’t run away at the mere mention of a promo).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<a href="http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Looneyboyo/media/KCCW/VanceSturt.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g165/Looneyboyo/KCCW/VanceSturt.jpg</span></a></p><p>

<strong>Vance Sturt</strong></p><p>

<strong>Age:</strong> 31 <strong>Billed From:</strong> Melbourne, Victoria</p><p>

<strong>Entrance Music:</strong> Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap- AC/DC</p><p>

<strong>Finisher:</strong> Mafia Kick (Running Big Boot)</p><p>

Vance is not only the boss, he’s also probably our top heel. Okay, so he doesn't have Tombstone or John Gordon’s workrate, but he’s got better fundamentals than either of them and a deal more menace. Along with Boo he’ll be acting as our chief road agent, and instinct says that if he isn't our opening champ he’ll probably be part of our top feud in the early going.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Andre Boone & Blair Brunzell- The Knights Temple</strong></p><p>

<strong>Ages:</strong> both 20 <strong>Billed From:</strong> Auckland, New Zealand</p><p>

<strong>Entrance Music:</strong> Swords of a Thousand Men- Tenpole Tudor</p><p>

<strong>Finishers:</strong> Legend Killer (Diamond Cutter, Boone), B-Sting (Missile Dropkick, Brunzell) </p><p>

The Knights Temple are another of our ZEN imports, where they wrestle as SubUrban Commando and Killer B respectively. They’re fairly classic ZEN workers; good high fliers, a bit of technique or brawling for flavour, but very weak fundamentals. Still, they make for an effective babyface tag team, and as an experienced unit are used to hiding each other’s weaknesses.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<a href="http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Looneyboyo/media/KCCW/Eraser_zpsf4e5909b.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g165/Looneyboyo/KCCW/Eraser_zpsf4e5909b.jpg</span></a></p><p>


<strong>Age:</strong> 22 <strong>Billed From:</strong> Cape Town, South Africa</p><p>

<strong>Entrance Music:</strong> The Cure- Burn</p><p>

<strong>Finisher:</strong> Rub Out (Sit-out Facebuster)</p><p>

Eraser’s sort of another ZEN import; he started out with them and bears the marks of their training even if he left them months before we signed him. He’s more of a brawler than the Knights, though, and has more balanced fundamentals- okay, so that means they’re generally mediocre rather than sometimes good and sometimes awful, but it’s still a distinct difference from Boone and Brunzell. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<a href="http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Looneyboyo/media/KCCW/WhirlwindLeeWilkes.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g165/Looneyboyo/KCCW/WhirlwindLeeWilkes.jpg</span></a></p><p>

<strong>Whirlwind Lee Wilkes</strong></p><p>

<strong>Age:</strong> 28 <strong>Billed From:</strong> Perth, Western Australia</p><p>

<strong>Entrance Music:</strong> Dizzy- Vic Reeves & The Wonderstuff</p><p>

<strong>Finisher:</strong> Whirlwind DDT (Tornado DDT)</p><p>

Lee Wilkes has a bit of a reputation for being bland, but if you ask me that’s kind of unfair. I mean, he’s certainly not one of the flashiest or charismatic workers around, but he’s a good all-rounder with solid fundamentals and decent physical attributes. He’s basically our second babyface, and will road agent the matches that Vance and Boo aren’t available for (he’s not really got great psychology, but it’ll do).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Damian Dastardly & Dexter Mattell- Partners in Crime</strong></p><p>

<strong>Ages:</strong> Both 20 <strong>Billed From:</strong> Wellington, New Zealand and Dunedin, New Zealand</p><p>

<strong>Entrance Music:</strong> You Bought a Knife to a Gunfight- Stone Gods</p><p>

<strong>Finishers:</strong> Dastardly Cunning (Double Knee Backbreaker, Dastardly), STF (Mattell)</p><p>

KCCW’s resident heel team, me and Damian are pretty much of a kind. Both solid workers, he’s got more of an all-round game whereas I’m strictly get ‘em down and work them over on the mat; on the other hand, I’ve got far better fundamentals than he does. He’s also got a slight edge in terms of star quality and charisma, but to my way of thinking those weaknesses in his fundamentals mean that we’re both of us better off in a team whilst we learn a bit (after all, neither of us have completed a full year of pro wrestling).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<a href="http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Looneyboyo/media/KCCW/LoneRider.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g165/Looneyboyo/KCCW/LoneRider.jpg</span></a></p><p>

<strong>Lone Rider</strong></p><p>

<strong>Age:</strong> 23 <strong>Billed From:</strong> Darwin, Northern Territory</p><p>

<strong>Entrance Music:</strong> Beds are Burning- Midnight Oil</p><p>

<strong>Finisher:</strong> Ride On (Double Underhook Facebuster)</p><p>

A second generation star, Rider’s not a bad worker- he can brawl pretty well and his fundamentals are solid- but he lacks the star quality or charisma of his dad. People are talking about him as one of our hottest prospects, though, so I’m willing to let him have the ball a bit and see what he does with it. Make no mistake, he’s not ahead of Lee or the Knights for a push, but if he looks like improving in a couple of key areas then I’ll see how he handle a more high-profile push.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<a href="http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Looneyboyo/media/KCCW/MichaelRheur.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g165/Looneyboyo/KCCW/MichaelRheur.jpg</span></a></p><p>

<strong>Michael Rheur</strong></p><p>

<strong>Age:</strong> 37 <strong>Billed From:</strong> Adelaide, South Australia</p><p>

<strong>Entrance Music:</strong> Back in Black- AC/DC</p><p>

<strong>Finisher:</strong> Munich Stretch (Chikara Special)</p><p>

Rheur’s a veteran technician who brings our roster a bit more serious credibility, but unfortunately age is starting to catch up with him. At the moment he’s still pretty solid, but depending on how his decline starts to affect him he could very quickly start to become a bit useless. As it is, though, he’s got a lot of usage as a midcard anchor, and until we see how his decline pans out I see him as an anchor holding things together whilst the younger guys improve. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Dale Young</strong></p><p>

KCCW’s lead announcer, Dale’s very much a work in progress but getting him on board now gives our announcing desk a chance to build up some experience before we get on telly. Stylistically he’s still searching for what makes him distinctive, but he’s got all the basics in place and should become pretty solid given time.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Ross Stewart</strong></p><p>

Our resident colour commentator, Ross isn’t great, but like Dale should have a chance to improve before we get to the point where it matters. The main reason why he came in (in addition to the fact that he was the only guy in our price range) is his style; he’s more of an analyst than a conventional colour guy, and I want to see how that affects our product.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<a href="http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Looneyboyo/media/KCCW/DelbertDeGeorge.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g165/Looneyboyo/KCCW/DelbertDeGeorge.jpg</span></a></p><p>

<strong>Delbert DeGeorge</strong></p><p>

Our heel manager, Delbert’s here to handle promos for Vance and Partners in Crime. To be honest he’s not that spectacular a talker, but he’s just about the nicest guy in the world and that counts for a lot. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<a href="http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Looneyboyo/media/KCCW/LillianODonahue.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g165/Looneyboyo/KCCW/LillianODonahue.jpg</span></a></p><p>

<strong>Lillian O’Donahue</strong></p><p>

Boo’s manager, Lill’s here because if we let Smithson handle his own promo’s he’d probably drop dead of fright. Like Del she’s alright but nothing spectacular and here largely because she came pretty cheap.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<a href="http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Looneyboyo/media/KCCW/GenePerry.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g165/Looneyboyo/KCCW/GenePerry.jpg</span></a></p><p>

<strong>Gene Perry</strong></p><p>

KCCW’s head (and only) referee, Gene’s a solid hand who helps out a lot backstage and, again, was willing to work for less than most of the other options. I plan on bringing in an extra ref or two down the line when we’ve got a bit more cash, but that’s to help Gene rather than replace him.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<p>First of all, thanks to everyone who's reading this dynasty, and special thanks to Midnightnick and Briskout for their comments (oh, and everyone should go and check out Briskout's MAW dynasty, as it's awesome).</p><p> </p><p>

Secondly, the show will go up either tomorrow afternoon or tomorrow evening, so there's still plenty of time to get predictions in.</p>

<p></p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong><span style="font-size:36px;">KCCW Bohemian Rhapsody</span></strong></p><p><strong>

</strong><strong><span style="font-size:24px;">Live to DVD from Laird Lounge</span></strong></p><p><strong><span style="font-size:24px;">

Friday, Week 4, January</span></strong></p><p><strong><span style="font-size:24px;">

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="font-size:18px;">The Show</span></span></strong> </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Eraser vs. Lee Wilkes</strong></p><p>

We kicked our first ever show off with a pretty solid match, given our size. Eraser and Lee are both pretty dependable hands, and whilst they weren’t quite perfect (they’re neither of them really used to working 12-minute matches like this one, and Eraser came down with debut nerves and was off form) they both did enough to keep the crowd engaged with their characters and the action. That was really the big success story of the match; whilst the action wasn’t much more than okay the crowd really got behind Eraser’s gothic persona and Lee Wilkes’ old school heroism. The South African got the win here (we’re a bit lacking in top heels behind Vance and John), cutting off Lee’s attempt at a Rolling Thunder Lariat with a boot to the midriff and then nailing the Rub-Out.</p><p>

<strong>Winner:</strong> Eraser <strong>Match Rating:</strong> <em><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">D-</span></span></em></p><p> </p><p>

*</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Lone Rider vs. Michael Rheur</strong></p><p>

This was a much weaker match, albeit one that still kept the crowd hot (advantage of low expectations, I guess). The problem was Michael- his decline isn’t major enough to really damage his skills but it’s still undeniably slowing him down. Admittedly we had him playing a Pure Wrestler, slowing the action down to work Rider over with holds, but even so he was still clearly struggling to keep up the intensity and that hit this one hard. Plus, of course, both Rheur and Rider were struggling with the length of the match- I’d talk to Vance about adjusting the match lengths but frankly they’re hardly demanding so I may just fire a whole bunch of guys and find some replacements that can actually handle our match lengths. Rider got this one, dropping Michael with the Ride On.</p><p>

<strong>Winner:</strong> Lone Rider <strong>Match Rating:</strong> <em><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">E</span></span></em></p><p> </p><p>

*</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Knights Temple vs. Partners in Crime</strong></p><p>

This wasn’t great, but it showed some promise for our tag division and kept up the general momentum of the show. The main reason for the problem was basically experience- when there’s a combined total of two years experience between four wrestlers, that’s always going to be problematic. Psychology was the main issue- none of the ZEN guys know how to tell a story in the ring, and whilst I did my best to hold it together I’m no expert either. Plus, me and Delbert really don’t work well together, the chemistry’s off and it threw my offence; I need a manager who’s a bit more forceful, Delbert’s more of a cerebral kind of character and it made it look like I was just ignoring him, which isn’t a good story. On the plus side, the response to all the characters was great, and Damian and Boone’s charisma did a lot to help the reaction here. Given that the Knights are the experienced team they took the win here, Andre taking me out with the Legend Killer whilst Blair kept Damian and Del busy.</p><p>

<strong>Winners:</strong> The Knights Temple <strong>Match Rating:</strong> <em><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">E+</span></span></em></p><p> </p><p>

*</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Vance Sturt vs. Tombstone</strong></p><p>

After the travails of the undercard this finally kicked the show into something resembling high gear. That’s hardly surprising, though; there’s a big step up in quality when you get to our main event stars, and Vance is more than capable of covering for Tombstone’s weak psychology. Of course, Tombstone’s strong technical base and fierce brawling also helps cover for Vance’s less impressive abilities in those departments- he’s not bad, but the boss would be the first (well, maybe the second or third) to admit he’s always been more capable than good. He can still hold up his end of a brawl, though, and that’s basically what this match was, as the two biggest men on the roster tried to assert their power advantage over the other man. Eventually, though, Vance was able to claim the advantage, albeit only by raking Tombstone’s eyes when Gene couldn’t see, and from there it was all Vance. Tombstone staged a brief fight back, but a quick knee to the ribs cut him off and Sturt was quick to nail the Mafia Kick and secure the victory.</p><p>

<strong>Winner:</strong> Vance Sturt <strong>Match Rating:</strong> <em><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">D</span></span></em></p><p> </p><p>

*</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Boo Smithson vs. John Gordon</strong></p><p>

This was the best match of the night, but then it did have Boo Smithson in it. I don’t think it would be exaggerating things to call Boo the best wrestler in Australia, and whilst J.G. isn’t anywhere near that level he could be, given time and the right breaks. Plus, of course, he primarily relies on brawling and technique for his offence, and given that Boo is the Master of the Mat and a good brawler to boot that made for a great match that saw both men trade holds and try to out-wrestle each other for the title. John initially had the advantage as his superior speed and power enabled him to hit harder than his opponent, but eventually Boo was able to take him down onto the mat and the momentum swung firmly Boo’s way- as Ross put it on commentary ‘he’s good in the stand-up, but when it comes to the mat there’s not a man alive can take on Boo Smithson’. John actually held up better than a lot of people, but when Boo was able to reverse an attempted backslide into the Crossface Chickenwing it was all over bar the tapping.</p><p>

<strong>Winner:</strong> Boo Smithson <strong>Match Rating:</strong> <em><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">D+</span></span></em></p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Overall Rating:</span></strong> <em><span style="font-size:24px;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">D+</span></span></em>, thanks to our top stars making up for a middling undercard.</p>

<p>So, let's take a look at the predictions and see how they went:</p><p> </p><p>

Midnightnick: 4/5</p><p>

Briskout: 1/5, but then you write an awesome MAW game so who cares?</p><p>

DanMTheMan: 4/5</p><p> </p><p>

So, Dan and Midnightnick get the win here and have the right to post a question any KCCW wrestler or non-wrestler, which'll be answered in the run-up to the next show.</p>

I'd like to pass on my reward this time around, 1PWFan. I just can't think of a question this time around. I don't really know the Australia scene of the C-Verse that well so, I'm slowly looking into it and I'll take you up on asking a question at a later date when I know more.

Laird Lounge, Perth



“Vance? Oy, Vance, where are you?”



“Hi! Can I help you?”


“What the…sorry, didn’t see you there. I’m looking for Vance Sturt, the KCCW owner?”


“No problem, he’s in the back! OY BOSS, SOME BLOKE’S HERE TO SEE YOU!”


Given that the girl in question (and who the heck was she, anyway?) was maybe five and a half feet tall and skinny with it, Dex had to admit to being taken aback by the sheer volume she could produce.



“Alright alright, no need to shout…alright Dex? Come on, there’s an office at the back they’re letting us use.”


Dex followed Vance into his office, which looked suspiciously like a converted store-room.


“Who’s the Sheila then?”


“Her name’s Rose- she agreed to work as my assistant if I gave her brother a shot in the ring.”


“Oh great, so now we’ve got some half-trained galah hanging around just because his kid sister batted her eyelashes at you? Thanks a bundle boss”


“Firstly, she’s his twin, second you take that tone and me and I’ll smack you one. As for the kid, I’ve had a look at him, he ain’t so bad. Bit green, but he’s a sight more promising than Rider or Mikey Rheur were”


Dex was inclined to agree- Rheur had been too fond of a grog and a rolly for his taste, and Rider might have been talented but he wasn’t smart enough to avoid getting into a fight with the boss on his first night. KCCW was well rid of the both of them.


“So, how’d it go last month? Haven’t had a chance to check the financials yet”


“Not too bad- we lost about 4 thousand quid, but I figure we can take that for a couple of months without worrying too much, and hopefully we’ll start pulling in more money off of sponsorship and merch now people know we’re out there”


“No worries Dex, gotta spend it to make it. Now, what’s the plan for next month?”


“Well, here’s what I’m thinking…”




Card for KCCW Under Pressure:

Boo Smithson © vs. Vance Sturt - Unless Vance pulls the "I'm the owner" card.


Whirlwind Lee Wilkes vs. John Gordon - Building up for the mostly anticipated by me only rematch between he and Boo.



The Knights Temple © vs. Eraser & Pat Rigby - One's a team, one's not.


Tombstone vs. Damian Dastardly - Although Damian Dastardly has the greatest name in all of Australia.


Matty Wills vs. Dexter Mattell - RAW SEX. Come on.

Just noticed this, I'm a big fan of the Australian c-verse so I'll definitely be following this. I'm actually playing a pretty similar game myself, though I'm at regional level, just got a TV deal, with the Original Lone Rider as my user character.




Boo Smithson © vs. Vance Sturt

Boo has great matches with everyone


Whirlwind Lee Wilkes vs. John Gordon

Gordon is a better worker than eraser, so I think Wilkes will come up short once more.



The Knights Temple © vs. Eraser & Pat Rigby

Real Team vs random pairing, so Rigsby takes the fall here.


Tombstone vs. Damian Dastardly

Damian Dastardly has potential, but Tombstone is one of the best Young Talents in Australia.


Matty Wills vs. Dexter Mattell

Coinflip here, I'll say the bookerman lets the new kid go over.





You might want to consider hiring Jimmy Stratosphere, APW seems to always just release him and his partner despite Stratosphere being one of the best high flyers in Australia, a solid performer, and an extremely positive backstage influence to boot.

<p>Been running a similar game and have a handful of these fellas on my roster. Following along on this one...</p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Boo Smithson ©</strong> vs. Vance Sturt</p><p>

<span style="font-size:8px;">Ability to work with everyone and churn out D+ and higher matches makes him an obvious choice to carry the strap for a while</span></p><p> </p><p>

Whirlwind Lee Wilkes vs. <strong>John Gordon</strong></p><p>

<span style="font-size:8px;">Have to get Gordon back on the winning track, and Wilkes is just the man for the job</span></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>The Knights Temple ©</strong> vs. Eraser & Pat Rigby </p><p>

<span style="font-size:8px;">Eraser with the slight push, so Rigby takes the fall</span></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Tombstone</strong> vs. Damian Dastardly</p><p>

<span style="font-size:8px;">Dastardly is a favorite of mine, and he will work well with the bigger names up the card to produce solid matches. But he will lose them...</span></p><p> </p><p>

Matty Wills vs. <strong>Dexter Mattell</strong></p><p>

<span style="font-size:8px;">Why not book yourself a win over the new guy?</span></p>

Seems to have more potential, that may change but for now I think he'll be one of your main players


The Knights Temple © vs. Eraser & Pat Rigby


Tombstone vs. Damian Dastardly

Tombstone is bad-ass

<p>Show will be going up probably tomorrow evening- here's the fan question while you wait. Most questions, by the way, will probably be answered out-of-kayfabe unless they're obviously in character. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>For Eraser:</strong> "So how are you going to make your mark in KCCW considering how poorly you were treated in ZEN?"</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Eraser:</strong> First off, I left ZEN of my own accord- I prefer singles competition to tag team work, and it was clear that I wasn't going to move outside the tag ranks whilst I was there. </p><p> </p><p>

As for making an impact in KCCW, the key is simple: win matches. We've got five matches on a card, people remember the winners.</p>

<strong>Dexter Mattell vs. Matty Hills</strong></p><p>

Given that he’s a complete newbie I decided to give Matty an up-close look myself. The results were…a little mixed. The crowd loved Matty’s patriotic schtick, and Rose fills out a bikini something amazing so they loved that, but in a supreme display of irony they just don’t have any chemistry together at all and that really hurt the match. Otherwise, though, this was a solid bout; Matty sold my offence pretty well, and whilst I won’t claim his psychology’s great we were able to get Vance’s script to work pretty well in the ring, and Matty’s obvious inexperience gave his rather scrappy offence a certain charm that should help cover for his weaknesses whilst he improves. In the end, though, this one went my way (after all, I am the more experienced wrestler, for once), as I was able to catch Hills with a Hotshot onto the ropes before sinking in the STF to force the submission.</p><p>

<strong>Tombstone vs. Damian Dastardly</strong></p><p>

This one was pretty solid, which bodes well for the future of both of these two. Admittedly Tombstone’s already one of our top guys, but as our number two babyface there’s a lot of pressure on him to live up to Boo’s standard and every match he can deliver that’s halfway decent is a positive sign in that direction, especially when he’s improving his technique (as happened here). As for Damian, his psychology remains awful but he can still come out looking like a star thanks to his charisma and star quality, and his interaction with Delbert has the added advantage of making everything he does look planned even it blatantly isn’t (like all ZEN guys he has a tendency to just string random spots together and call it offence, but Delbert has the knack of calling moves from ringside to make it look like it’s all part of a plan). In the end, though, Damian’s cockiness counted against him; he was able to hit the Dastardly Cunning but spent so long swaggering and putting Tombstone down verbally that his opponent recovered and caught him out with a snap Rest in Peace, forcing a rapid submission from the rookie.</p><p>

<strong>Pat Rigsby & Eraser vs. The Knights Temple</strong></p><p>

This wasn’t so good, but again there was a reason for that; Rigsby and Eraser really don’t work well as a team, and that hit things pretty hard. On the other hand, they were never meant to be a long-term unit, and individually Pat came out of it looking okay; people certainly got behind his trashy Bogan gimmick. As for the others, Eraser was solid but fairly unexceptional, and the Knights were their usual flashy-but-inconsistent selves. Andre in particular is a bit of a mixed bag- he’s got the charisma and star quality to entertain the audience, but his poor psychology and inconsistency give him a tendency to really take the crowd out of the moment and annoy them. Given that he took the majority of the ring-time here, bumping for the frequently somewhat disjointed offence of the heels, that was a bit of a problem, but once he made the hot tag to Blair things picked up a bit, and when Brunzell was able to nail Eraser with the B-Sting and get the pinfall the cheers were more of the ‘yay the good guys won’ variety than the ‘thank god that’s over’ kind.</p><p>

<strong>Whirlwind Lee Wilkes vs. John Gordon</strong></p><p>

This was a trifle disappointing, but to be fair both of these guys are fairly young and we always knew they’d need to improve a bit. Lee’s stamina is his big problem- I had him drop some weight and that’s helped but it’s still not really enough to cope with the length of our top matches. John, on the other hand, is struggling with the perennial problem of all ZEN workers- consistency. Oh, he’s far better on that front than the likes of Blair or Andre, but there’s no denying that he’s still occasionally prone to mistakes, particularly when it comes to transitioning between holds (he’s really not a mat specialist, and whilst he can do the odd submission hold he’s better at just cranking it on and working to the rope break rather than going through counters). He’s still a very promising young worker, though, and took the win here with the Goatee Driver.</p><p>

<strong>Winner:</strong> John Gordon <strong>Match Rating:</strong> <em><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">D-</span></span></em></p><p> </p><p>

It’s promo time, as Delbert is on hand to hype up the main event</p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#006400;">“There are certain truths widely held to be self-evident, and it is most certainly the case that Vance Sturt’s dominance in the ring is one of those self-evident truths. Tonight, Boo Smithson, you will encounter the full force of that dominance, as you step into the ring with Australia’s most dangerous man. Only luck and god know if you will step out again.”</span></p><p> </p><p>

This was really pretty good- a combination of Delbert’s popularity and skill and Vance’s obvious menace really helped this one get a reaction.</p><p>

<strong>Rating:</strong> <em><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">D</span></span></em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Boo Smithson vs. Vance Sturt</strong></p><p>

Well, that’s out headline feud sorted out then. These two had a great match, above and beyond anything I would’ve expected, and cemented these two as indisputably our top stars going forward. Of course, with hindsight it’s obvious that this would be a good match; both men can call the action in the ring, after all, and whilst we’ve got better wrestlers than Vance in terms of offence his combination of gritty brawling and solid fundamentals makes him one of our top show-stoppers. As for Boo, what more can be said? This man is indisputably the best pure wrestler on the continent, and the fact that we’re the only ones who’ve picked up on that says a lot about why APW will never beat those clowns over at RAW. </p><p> </p><p>

Storyline-wise, this one was the classic power vs. technique battle, with Boo working Vance over with holds to try and soften him up for the Crossface Chickenwing whilst Sturt settled for punching Boo in the head repeatedly, employing the occasional bit of casual brutality when he thought he could get away with it. He was also helped by the fact that whenever Boo was able to claim a major advantage Delbert, Damian or I interfered, keeping Boo from claiming the victory (and that’s even with Lillian cheering him on from ringside). In the end, though, Boo was able to lure the Trifecta into a trap; when Vance ‘accidentally’ dropped Gene Perry with a Mafia Kick it looked like Boo was pretty much out on his feet, but as Damian and I entered the ring the champ flew into action, dropped me with a flurry of forearms (and I think I’ve got the print of his elbow in my face, Boo hits hard) before throwing Damian over the top rope and into Delbert DeGeorge. Vance went for another Mafia kick to take out his opponent, but Smithson had it scouted and dodged the move before sinking in the Crossface Chickenwing, forcing Vance to submit.</p><p>

<strong>Winner:</strong> Boo Smithson <strong>Match Rating:</strong> <em><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">C-</span></span></em></p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Overall Rating:</span></strong> <em><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="font-size:24px;">D+</span></span></em>, and with that main event it’s definitely stronger than our debut.</p>
