TOTAL CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING

 

Born in 1996 as the Hollyweird Grappling Company (HGC) to combat the dominance of Richard Eisen's Supreme Wrestling Federation (SWF). Launching straight into a head-to-head war, HGC brought in the biggest stars of the 80s and early 90s, Sam Strong and Rip Chord, and mimicked SWF's patented "sports entertainment" style. While the company found success, and built a large audience, they were never able to mount a serious challenge to the SWF.

 

By late 2004, the company's derivative product was wearing thin, and a new ownership group took over, lead by the young ace of the company, Tommy Cornell. Seeing the weakness in the HGC strategy, Cornell immediately set about rebranding it, stripping down the soap opera elements, emphasizing a more traditional, wrestling-based product, and leaving sports entertainment behind. Changing the name to Total Championship Wrestling (TCW), Tommy Cornell now had a true alternative to present wrestling fans, and the new battle lines were quickly drawn.

 

By 2008, it finally looked like TCW might finally achieve their goal of overtaking the SWF as the premier American wrestling promotion, and top company in the world. Having cultivated the roster, and brought in some key players from defunct cult promotion Danger And Violence Extreme (DAVE), Cornell pulled the trigger on truly setting himself up as the dominant antagonist, forming The Syndicate, also including his quickly rising protege, Wolf Hawkins, and Tag Team Champions, The Machines. On top of that, they promised a fifth member, who turned out to be a true wrestling icon, Sam Keith, the undisputed top heel of the 90s for SWF, and he only man to have held world titles in all four of the top wrestling countries (USA, Canada, Mexico, and Japan). Keith had been the head booker for Eisen, but became the scapegoat for the disastrous "SWF Election" storyline of 2007. With life still left in his in-ring career, everything was in place for TCW's moment of triumph.

 

Almost immediately, though, things started coming apart. Injuries sidelined Wolf Hawkins and Brent Hill (1/2 of the Machines), causing the rushed heel turn and induction of Rick Law to fill out the Tag champs, and seriously undercutting the Syndicate's momentum. Then, just as the group returned to full force, corporate issues cropped up, as several of Cornell's investors pulled out, forcing TCW to let several of their biggest stars go, with the likes of Liberty & Tyson Baine moving to Sam Strong's United States Pro Wrestling (USPW), raising that company up to national level.

 

TCW still sports a formidable roster, anchored by Tommy Cornell, who many consider to be the greatest wrestler of his generation, a large fanbase, an enviable television deal, and remain the unquestioned #2 promotion in America. The past couple years have seen Rocky Golden and Joey Minnesota rise as main event babyfaces, both with World Heavyweight Championship reigns to their names, and most recently, Wolf Hawkins has joined them, while still in partnership with Cornell. The Syndicate has otherwise disbanded, and Sam Keith has since retired, but the future is without a doubt bright for Total Championship Wrestling. After nearly two decades of existence, they may finally be poised to achieve their founding goal and destiny.

 

This is their story....

Roster Overview

 

Main Eventers

 

  • Bryan Vessey (Age 41, American): Younger brother of Larry Vessey, the two ruled the tag team world of TCW throughout the late 90s and early 2000s, becoming the inaugural World Tag Team Champions, and winning the titles a record 6 times. As Larry's age caught up with him, Bryan set out for Japan, to become a singles competitor, making immediate waves in PGHW. After a few years there, he returned to TCW in 2009, and has established himself as a dangerous shoot fighter.
  • Joey Minnesota (Age 30, American): Long tipped as a big prospect, with an even bigger attitude, Minnesota joined TCW in 2007, after DAVE's demise, as the cocky heel he'd always played. His breakthrough came in 2009, though, thanks to a prominent role in the Freedom Fighters faction, fighting against The Syndicate. He held the World title in 2010-11, and continues to partner with Ricky Dale Johnson, in their quest to finally put The Syndicate out of commission for good.
  • Koshiro Ino (Age 35, Japanese): Trained by the legendary Hooded Kudo, the biggest international star Japan has ever produced, Ino is a heavyweight powerhouse, renowned for his "Kobra" face paint. Coming up through BHOTWG, Japan's #1 promotion and the home of his mentor, Ino announced in 2007 that to take himself to the next level, he needed to travel the world, as Kudo did. He has been with TCW since 2008, and has established himself as an integral member of the roster.
  • Ricky Dale Johnson (Age 42, American): "RDJ" is the elder statesman of TCW, and has been the top babyface of the promotion since winning his first World title in 2006. He has lead the charge against The Syndicate since day one, and while he hasn't been World Champion since 2008, he remains the moral authority of the company, giving his blessing to other babyface champions in that time.
  • Rocky Golden (Age 29, American): A young man with a massive physique, many see Golden as being a weird fit for TCW, seemingly better suited to sports entertainment than Cornell's vision of Total Wrestling. His undeniable star quality and positioning in the Freedom Fighters broke through those preconceptions, though, and it was Rocky who finally unseated Tommy Cornell for the World Championship, in 2009, then repeated the feat in 2011. He is he most recent champion before Wolf Hawkins' current reign.
  • Tommy Cornell (Age 34, English): Winning the World Heavyweight Championship at just 21 years of age, and holding it for a full year, Cornell added one more lengthy reign to his resume, before becoming the principle owner of TCW. Since then, he has upped his championship total to 6, for a combined 59 months, over a 12 year period. The leader of The Syndicate, which now only consists of himself and his protege...
  • Wolf Hawkins (Age 26, American): The other half of The Syndicate, Hawkins defeated Rocky Golden for the World Championship in September 2012, fulfilling the promise of being the only man personally trained by Tommy Cornell.

 

Upper Midcarders

 

  • Benny Benson (Age 32, Canadian): Best known as Elmo Benson, in SWF's Sesame Street-inspired tag team, High Concept, Benson was one half of the premier team of the mid-2000s. Creative differences lead to his departure in 2009, and arrival in TCW. He has made his mark as a singles competitor, and is a former International champion.
  • Danny Fonzarelli (Age 37, American): A long time tag worker, under the name Jay Darkness, Fonzarelli reinvented himself as TCW's "Dr. Love", and quickly became a hit with TCW fans.
  • Eddie Peak (Age 36, American): The "Hardcore Assassin" was possibly DAVE's biggest breakout star, having grown from a tag team worker alongside his brother Dave, all the way to their top champion. He lead the charge for DAVE workers signed by TCW, and has firmly entrenched himself as the resident monster in the upper reaches of the card.
  • John Anderson (Age 37, American): One half of The Machines, who held championship gold as a duo, then as part of The Syndicate, and then with Rick Law as a replacement partner when Brent Hill was sidelined with injury. Now again on their own, The Machines remain a formidable duo, and many see Anderson as someone who could achieve singles success in TCW, if given the chance.
  • Joshua Taylor (Age 30, American): Left early in his career for an opportunity with PGHW, and has become a very solid competitor for it. He returned to America in 2009, after getting engaged (now married) to AAA star Tracy Brendon, and has been with TCW ever since. One-time International Champion.
  • Rick Law (Age 30, American): Famous for his policeman gimmick, and considered one of the best strikers in America, Law worked his way up as a babyface, but turned on everyone to join The Syndicate as the replacement partner for John Anderson. Adept at both brawling and entertainment, he remains a top pick to be a future World Champion.
  • Troy Tornado (Age 35, American): A terrific performer, who made his name as the replacement for Jack Bruce in the rock band/stable Painful Procedure, when Bruce jumped ship to SWF (where he became the biggest star on the planet), Tornado flirted with the World title in 2010, before being sidelined for over twelve months with a serious neck injury. Now riding the high of recently returning, but severely dialing back his ring style, only time will tell if Tornado is able to reach the top, as seemed so certain a few years ago.

 

Midcarders

 

  • Aaron Andrews (Age 26, American): The first graduate of TCW's training program, Andrews possesses the "holy trinity" of skills, looks, and charisma. He has followed through on that promise, working his way up through the All Action division, and a tag team pairing with fellow prospect Chance Fortune, to having recently won the International Championship. The future is bright for this blue chip babyface.
  • American Buffalo (Age 39, American): He's huge and powerful, like a buffalo. Lead by his handler, Floyd Goldworthy, he is a 3-time Tag Team Champion, currently holding the titles with Texas Pete, as Texas Buffalo.
  • Brent Hill (Age 42, American): One half of The Machines, Hill was a long-time mainstay on the independent scene, known as "The Complete Package". A superb all-rounder, Hill hit a major snag in 2008, when – just as The Syndicate was getting started – he suffered a broken neck that took him out of action for 18 months. Now considerably more conservative in the ring, and advancing in age, Hill's best work is clearly behind him, but he still has the talent to hold his own in TCW.
  • Freddy Huggins (Age 28, Canadian): A long-time prospect, Huggins plays a great cocky heel, and has grown from a decent high flier to a solid, well-rounded competitor. With the addition of his sister, Laura Huggins, as his executive assistant, and a championship tag team in The Canadian Animals (with Edd Stone), Huggins continues to slowly work his way up the roster.
  • Genghis Rahn (Age 42, American): Joining HGC in its early days as a hardcore specialist, the psychotic Rahn has defied critics who said that he couldn't survive in Cornell's TCW. Fairly limited now, due to the years of abuse to his body, his crazed character work keeps him going. He recently held the International Championship, losing it to current-champion Aaron Andrews.
  • Giant Tana (Age 35, Samoan): Weighing in at well over 400lbs, and a member of the extended Samoan wrestling family, Tana is a jolly, comedic character, with infectious charisma. Limited in the ring, he is predominantly a jobber to the stars.
  • Guide (Age 34, American): An energetic brawler, and one half of the camo-wearing tag team The New Wave, with his long-time partner, Scout. They were 4-time DAVE Tag Team Champions, and have carried that to TCW, where they have had three reigns. Guide is seen as the star of the team, but no one has ever tried him in singles.
  • Joel Bryant (Age 41, American): Joining HGC way back in early 1997, the "Straight Shooter" is the definition of a ring general. Lacking charisma and an aura of star power, Bryant has made his living in the midcard, making everyone look good. A tag team specialist for most of his career, long-time partner Robert Oxford's retirement has placed Bryant in the singles ranks, now as a babyface for the first time in ages. Bryant was also the head booker of the promotion until recently stepping down to focus on the remaining years of his in-ring career.
  • Sammy Bach (Age 34, American): Another of the signings from DAVE, Bach has been the cornerstone of the All Action division for the past few years, but now looks poised to leave that behind him. Portraying a dark, degenerate "rock god", Bach came into the company as a heel, but crowds took to the character so strongly that he was practically forced to become a babyface (as he'd always been in DAVE). One of the most charismatic figures on the roster.
  • Scout (Age 34, American): The other half of the armed forces-inspired tag team, The New Wave, Scout provides the sweet science to his partner's brawling, creating a complimentary hybrid style that allows them to work well with any opponents.

 

Lower Midcarders

 

  • Chance Fortune (Age 33, American): A hot indy commodity, before joining TCW, he flourished in the All Action division, before forming a tag team with fellow prospect, Aaron Andrews. As Andrews star has risen, Fortune's fortunes haven't followed, and it now appears that he's plateaued. Still, he's an entertaining babyface, and useful member of the roster.
  • Edd Stone (Age 26, Canadian): The black sheep of Canada's most famous wrestling family, Edd has spent almost all of his career in high-flying divisions, both with NOTBPW and TCW. In recent years, he has formed a successful tag team with Freddy Huggins, called The Canadian Animals. While Huggins is managed by his sister, Stone has his own valet, in the form of the lovely Swede, Vita.
  • Harry Allen (Age 35, Australian): First joining TCW back in 1998, very early in his career, Allen was a fixture in the cruiserweight division right up until it was closed in 2004, with the change in ownership. Since then, he's been a constant midcard presence, as half of the now defunct Young Guns cowboy-themed tag team, and in-and-out of the All Action title picture.
  • Jay Chord (Age 22, American): Son of the legendary Rip Chord, primary antagonist of Sam Strong throughout the 80s and 90s (including in HGC's early days), Jay recently signed with TCW, after a three-way bidding war with SWF & USPW. Talented and charismatic, with an air of greatness about him, the only question is if his already considerable ego will get in the way of him reaching the heights his abilities warrant.
  • Texas Pete (Age 31, American): A big powerhouse and current Tag Team Champion (with American Buffalo), Pete was a hotly tipped prospect for SWF, before a falling out with Richard Eisen's son, Eric, lead to him jumping ship to TCW. He has never shown much upward mobility in his new home, but is well liked in the locker room, and an entertaining midcard act.

 

Openers

 

  • Flying Jimmy Foxx (Age 32, American): Currently in his second reign as All Action Champion, Flying Jimmy connects with the crowd through the goofy, dancing character that made him a hit on the independent scene, before joining TCW in 2008.
  • Killer Shark (Age 22, American): Weighing in at 430 pounds, Killer Shark lives up to his name. A graduate of the TCW School of Pro Wrestling in 2011, he has massive upside, if he can show an ability to grow as a performer.
  • Mighty Mo (Age 23, American): Graduating from the TCW School of Pro Wrestling in 2010, he is considered possibly the biggest prospect the camp has ever produced. A truly gifted athlete.

 

Enhancement Talent

 

  • Elliot Thomas (Age 20, American): Graduate of the TCW School of Pro Wrestling in 2011, this cruiserweight is a natural babyface.
  • Jeremie Courtney (Age 18, American): Fresh out of the TCW School of Pro Wrestling, Courtney is a straight up fist fighter.

 

Non-Wrestlers

 

  • Floyd Goldworthy (Age 47, American): Most famous for managing the rock band/stable Painful Procedure, the rest of Goldworthy's career has been spent accompanying monster heels. Currently managing the Tag Team Champions, Texas Buffalo.
  • Jason Azaria (Age 52, American): The voice of TCW/HGC since the very beginning, his trademark catchphrase ("Now here's a little fact you may not know...") has its own drinking game.
  • Kyle Rhodes (Age 41, American): Colour commentator who has been alongside Jason Azaria from day one, he askews the typical wise-cracking heel role, approaching wrestling more like a sports commentator and analyst.
  • Laura Huggins (Age 28, American): Twin sister of Freddy Huggins, she portrays a devious and over-protective character that compliments her brother well.
  • Ray Johnson (Age 39, American): Long-time referee for the company, best known for taking great ref bumps. Also acknowledged as the best golfer in wrestling.
  • Robert Oxford (Age 52, American): Recently retired wrestler with one of the most impressive tag team resumes of all time, Oxford was an 8-time champion, between 4 top promotions, in three different countries, with 5 different partners. He is now a road agent for TCW.
  • Sam Keith (Age 51, American): Legendary wrestler, and former member of The Syndicate, he left TCW to take over Mid Atlantic Wrestling (MAW) from Rip Chord (who founded it after retiring with TCW), in 2011. MAW is now a development territory for TCW, and with that, Keith has rejoined the fold, to help integrate talent to the big show.
  • Sam Sparrow (Age 56, American): Head referee of TCW since its debut, he does a killer Tommy Cornell impression.
  • Shawn Doakes (Age 27, American): Signing with TCW after graduating from university for broadcasting (where he called basketball games), Doakes has worked as a backstage interviewer and played roles in a number of vignettes over the past 5 years. With a new year dawning, he has been promoted to the third man at the announce table, where he's to be groomed as the future play-by-play announcer. More emotionally-driven than the encyclopedic Azaria.
  • Vita (Age 26, Swedish): Made sporatic appearances in the North American independent scene before TCW came calling in 2010. She replaced the departing Charlie Thatcher (now with USPW) as Edd Stone's manager/interference runner. Quite the flamboyant figure.
  • Warlord Pain (Age 52, American): One half of the Lords of War (with Warlord Agony), one of the most legendary tag teams in North American wrestling history. They retired in 2007, and Pain joined TCW (who he'd never wrestled for) as a road agent, in 2012.

Live on GNN Total Sports

 

In-Ring: The Syndicate (Tommy Cornell & Wolf Hawkins), Rocky Golden, and Koshiro Ino

  • Cornell & Hawkins talk about Rocky Golden winning the Psycho Circus battle royal, earning another shot at the World title he lost to Hawkins in the fall.
  • Golden interrupts, challenging the Syndicate to a tag match in tonight's main event.
  • Syndicate accept, laughing at whatever idiot would want to team with a loser like Golden.
  • Japanese superstar Koshiro Ino stepping out onto the stage shuts them up in a heartbeat.

74

 

TCW All-Action Championship

Flying Jimmy Foxx © vs. Jay Chord

  • Jay Chord has every tool a young wrestler could ever dream to have, but can't not slip on a banana peel. Flying Jimmy Foxx shimmies and shakes his way to victory.

In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Flying Jimmy Foxx defeated Jay Chord in 8:10 by pinfall with a Flying Foxx. Flying Jimmy Foxx makes defence number 4 of his TCW All Action title.

62

 

Harry Allen & Elliot Thomas vs. The Machines (John Anderson & Brent Hill)

  • The Machines may be older, and no longer have the power of the Syndicate behind them, but they show that they are in fine form for this new year.

In an extremely short match, The Machines defeated Harry Allen and Elliot Thomas in 4:49 when John Anderson defeated Elliot Thomas by pinfall with an Ammo Dump.

62

 

Video: Eddie Peak & others

  • Peak is shown demolishing most of the babyface roster, over the past few years.

84

 

Joshua Taylor vs. Edd Stone w/Freddie Huggins, Laura Huggins, & Vita

  • Ultra-serious Taylor faces prankster Edd Stone, with Stone's partner, Freddy Huggins, and their managers, Vita & Laura Huggins, all causing mayhem around the entire ring. The shenanigans keep Stone from getting steamrolled, but some mistimed interference by his partner allows Taylor to put him away.

In a match that had some good action and average heat, Joshua Taylor defeated Edd Stone in 7:40 by submission with a Butterfly Lock.

67

 

Mighty Mo vs. Texas Pete w/American Buffalo & Floyd Goldworthy

  • A match pitting one blue-chip hoss against a now seasoned heavyweight, with Mo's athleticism shining bright, but ultimately falling short of the mark. The presence of Pete's championship partner, American Buffalo, and their manager, Floyd Goldworthy, also helps tip the scales.

In an extremely short match, Texas Pete defeated Mighty Mo in 5:03 by pinfall with a Lone Star Drop.

55

 

In Studio: Troy Tornado

  • 2012 was a year dominated by the Tommy Cornells, Ricky Dale Johnsons, and Rocky Goldens of the world, but now there's a new Tornado reshaping the landscape.
  • The Mayans said the world was going to end, and they were right. Troy Tornado is the fulfillment of their prophecy.
  • Everything that has been is gone.
  • Troy Tornado is what will be.

83

 

Freedom Fighters (Ricky Dale Johnson & Joey Minnesota) vs. Rick Law & Genghis Rahn

  • Minnesota & Law are in the midst of a blood feud, and Genghis Rahn is, well, a psychopath, so this got ugly and stayed that way. Ricky Dale Johnson looked to be the difference maker, as he so often has been, but had to keep an eye over this shoulder, with his rival, Bryan Vessey, sitting silently at the commentary table. Eventually, Minnesota clears Law out of the ring, and RDJ brings it on home with some good ol' Southern Justice.

In a match that had some good action and average heat, Freedom Fighters defeated Rick Law and Genghis Rahn in 12:37 when Ricky Dale Johnson defeated Genghis Rahn by pinfall with a Southern Justice.

73

 

Post-Match: Ricky Dale Johnson, Joey Minnesota, Rick Law, Bryan Vessey, and International Champion Aaron Andrews

  • Vessey enters the ring, and as Minnesota tries to keep them apart, Rick Law jumps the Freedom Fighters.
  • RDJ & Minnesota look to have the upper hand, until Genghis Rahn makes it a numbers game.
  • Aaron Andrews rushes out from the back, helping the babyfaces hold the ring.

74

 

Rocky Golden & Koshiro Ino vs. The Syndicate (Tommy Cornell & Wolf Hawkins)

  • The mix of Cornell's brawling, Hawkins' agility, and their combined mat prowess, meets the power and striking ability of their larger opponents. In a match with many twists an turns, it is the Syndicate's experience as a unit that wins the day, as they outflank the opposition, creating the opportunity to eliminate each of them 2-on-1.

In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, The Syndicate defeated Rocky Golden and Koshiro Ino in 23:21 when Wolf Hawkins defeated Koshiro Ino by pinfall with a Full Moon Rising.

88

 

Post-Match: Rocky Golden, Koshiro Ino, and The Syndicate (Tommy Cornell & Wolf Hawkins)

Tuesday, Week 2, January 2013

Plum Park (Tri State)

Attendance: 14,741 (PALINDROME!)

 

Pre-Show

 

In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Eddie Peak and Jay Chord defeated Mighty Mo and Flying Jimmy Foxx in 6:02 when Eddie Peak defeated Mighty Mo by pinfall with a Peak Of Perfection.

65

 

In a bout that had solid in-ring action but not much in the way of heat, Danny Fonzarelli and Harry Allen defeated Edd Stone and Jeremie Courtney in 5:57 when Danny Fonzarelli defeated Jeremie Courtney by pinfall with a Retro Rocket.

56

 

In a match that had some good action and average heat, Wolf Hawkins and Troy Tornado defeated Joel Bryant and Elliot Thomas and Giant Tana and Chance Fortune in 7:18 when Wolf Hawkins defeated Elliot Thomas by pinfall with a Full Moon Rising.

71

 

--------------------------------

 

Live on GNN Total Sports

 

In-Ring: Tommy Cornell, Wolf Hawkins, and Rocky Golden

  • The Syndicate ponders whether Rocky Golden even deserves the next title shot, since he's the loser Wolf Hawkins took it from in the first place.
  • Golden interrupts to say that he beat 20 other men in the Psycho Circus to earn this shot; tonight he'll beat the old man (Cornell), and in three weeks he'll beat the boy (Wolf).
  • Cornell says that, because Rocky's so confident, let's sweeten the pot. Why not put the Psycho Circus title shot on the line, in tonight's main event, against this "old man"?
  • After some goading, it's on!

73

 

Sammy Bach vs. Killer Shark

  • The young monster is capable of imposing his will, but he's still just a kid, and that means he makes mistakes. Sammy Bach weathers the storm, keeps his wits about him, and takes advantage where he can, scoring with a roll-up to escape with the victory.

In an extremely short match, Sammy Bach defeated Killer Shark in 4:42 by pinfall with a quick cradle.

53

 

Joshua Taylor vs. Freddy Huggins w/Edd Stone, Laura Huggins, & Vita

  • Huggins has a bit more fight in him than his partner, but Taylor is still overwhelming. Just like last week, all the players on the outside create as much havoc as possible, allowing Huggins to land his shots. This time, the interference pays off, and Taylor falls prey to the Huggins Kiss.

In a match that had some good action and average heat, Freddy Huggins defeated Joshua Taylor in 9:57 by pinfall with a Huggins Kiss following interference from Edd Stone.

70

 

In-Ring: Troy Tornado, KC Glenn (debut), Elliot Thomas, Chance Fortune, and Koshiro Ino

  • Troy Tornado calls himself the storm that will reshape TCW forever, and calls for a gauntlet match to give everyone a taste.
  • Elliot Thomas is out first, and is laid waste.
  • A fresh-faced kid named KC Glenn is out next, ducks a couple blows delivered a little too casually, connects with a few of his own, but is knocked out of the air when he tries to push the pace.
  • Chance Fortune tries his luck, and is able to hold his own for a couple minutes, before Tornado misdirects the referee, hits a low blow, and puts a stop to that nonsense.
  • Tornado is over-the-moon with confidence, calling for the next entrant, but when the big Japanese powerhouse, Koshiro Ino, answers the challenge, he bails from the ring, and quickly says into the microphone that time has run out on this gauntlet, having the ring announcer declare him the winner.

77

 

Benny Benson vs. John Anderson w/Brent Hill

  • Highly competitive match, with both men adept on the mat, complimented by suplexes from Anderson and aerial maneuvers from Benson, creating a classic speed vs power dynamic. Back and forth they went, looking like it could easily go either way, until the slightest distraction by Brent Hill tipped the balance in the favour of the Machines, and proved to be the difference.

In a match that had some good action and average heat, John Anderson defeated Benny Benson in 12:44 by pinfall with an Ammo Dump following a distraction by Brent Hill.

76

 

The New Wave (Guide & Scout) vs. Texas Buffalo (American Buffalo & Texas Pete) w/Floyd Goldworthy

  • New Wave were in tough against the monstrous Tag Team Champions, but their experience and balanced attack kept them going. Kept them going so much, in fact, that - following an absolutely rippin' hot tag by Guide that wiped out Texas Pete for good - Scout was able to ground the massive Buffalo, and choke him out. The New Wave beat the champions in non-title action.

In a match that had some good action and average heat, The New Wave defeated Texas Buffalo in 9:55 when Scout defeated American Buffalo by submission with a Special Force.

76

 

Ricky Dale Johnson, Joey Minnesota, & Aaron Andrews vs. Bryan Vessey, Rick Law, & Genghis Rahn

  • All the men involved in last week's brawl meet in the ring, and they pick up right where they left off: Hot, heavy, and all over the place. Things eventually settle down, and Minnesota is isolated for a long stretch. RDJ cleaned house when he got the tag, but was drawn off to brawl to the back with Vessey, leaving Andrews all alone with Law and Rahn, and at least at this point in his career, that's not a fight he's going to win.

In a match that had some good action and average heat, Bryan Vessey, Rick Law and Genghis Rahn defeated Aaron Andrews and Freedom Fighters in 12:14 when Rick Law defeated Aaron Andrews by pinfall with a Long Arm Of The Law.

78

 

#1 Contendership

Rocky Golden vs. Tommy Cornell

  • Golden may not be known as a mat wrestler, but his basics are as strong as his muscles, and he can play good defence. There's a reason he's a two-time champion, and beat Cornell for the title both times. Cornell controlled the pace and the action, but he just couldn't get in a position for the kill. Getting thrown halfway across the ring whenever Rocky got the chance didn't help, either. In the end, it was Wolf Hawkins with a belt shot to the head of Golden, behind the back of both the referee and Cornell, that made the difference.

In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Tommy Cornell defeated Rocky Golden in 20:29 by pinfall with a quick roll up following interference from Wolf Hawkins.

82

 

Post-Match: Tommy Cornell, Wolf Hawkins, and Rocky Golden

  • Hawkins and Cornell celebrate in the ring, but things get tense when they realize that this means the two of them will go one-on-one for the World Heavyweight Championship, at Malice In Wonderland.

<strong>In-Ring: Rocky Golden and the Syndicate (Wolf Hawkins & Tommy Cornell)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Golden isn't here to cry about spilled milk; Tommy Cornell beat him, and earned his way to challenging for the title. All Rocky wants is a chance to do the same. He challenges Wolf Hawkins to go one-on-one tonight, and when he wins, Golden wants to make it a triple threat.<br /></li><li>The Syndicate comes out, and Wolf Hawkins says that he has nothing to prove, and nothing to gain, so the answer is no.<br /></li><li>Cornell says that maybe there is something to be gained. How about, if Golden wins, it's a triple threat, but if he loses, then he never gets another title opportunity for as long as Wolf is champion.<br /></li><li>Everyone agrees, and the main event is set.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>81</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Mighty Mo & Steve Flash (debut) vs. C-V-2 (Cameron Vessey & Casey Valentine) (debut)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Two of Rip Chord's brightest students from MAW, Cameron Vessey (nephew of Bryan Vessey) and Casey Valentine (son of long-time TCW star Peter Valentine) are young and cocky. They've got the talent to back it up, too, controlling this match. Their hubris allows Mighty Mo and indy veteran, Steve Flash, to get their licks in, but it's not enough to keep this from being an emphatic debut victory for C-V-2.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that had solid in-ring action but non-existent crowd heat, C-V-2 defeated Mighty Mo and Steve Flash in 7:23 when Cameron Vessey defeated Mighty Mo by pinfall with a Flying V.</em></p><p>

<strong>57</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Joel Bryant & Danny Fonzarelli vs. Jay Chord & Jacob Jett (debut)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>The straight-laced Bryant and the playful Doctor of Love make for an odd pairing, and their difficulty to get on the same page let Chord and new high flyer, Jacob Jett, get the better of them. In the end, though, Fonz and Bryant got it together just enough to bring it home.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Joel Bryant and Danny Fonzarelli defeated Jay Chord and Jacob Jett in 6:39 when Joel Bryant defeated Jay Chord by pinfall with an One Shot Drop.</em></p><p>

<strong>64</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Backstage: Kyle Rhodes, Tommy Cornell, Joshua Taylor, and Tracy Brendon (debut)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Rhodes interviews Cornell, who says that every mentor should periodically test his protege, in order to continue their growth, so he isn't the least bit worried about the Syndicate facing each other for the World Heavyweight Championship causing strain in their relationship, just like he isn't worried about Hawkins facing Golden tonight.<br /></li><li>Elsewhere, Joshua Taylor is shown talking to his wife, the beautiful Tracy Brendon, who will be managing him from now on, to help him take the next step forward in his career. She'll start by finding him a partner to go against the Canadian Animals.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>66</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Aaron Andrews & The New Wave (Guide & Scout) vs. Genghis Rahn & Texas Buffalo w/Floyd Goldworthy</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>The Tag Team & International champions and challengers collide, and it is a big, messy brawl from beginning to end. With the New Wave and Texas Buffalo fighting all around ringside, Aaron Andrews lets his temper get the best of him, going after Floyd Goldworthy after attempted interference, and falling to the man he will defend against in 2 weeks, 1-2-3.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, Genghis Rahn and Texas Buffalo defeated Aaron Andrews and The New Wave in 9:29 when Genghis Rahn defeated Aaron Andrews by pinfall with a Rahn To The Hills.</em></p><p>

<strong>Harry Allen & KC Glenn vs. Bryan Vessey & Rick Law</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>A tune-up match for Vessey & Law, who will team together against their respective PPV opponents, the Freedom Fighters, next week. Glenn gets in a hot tag full of sound and fury, but in the end, it signifies nothing.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>71</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Backstage: Kyle Rhodes, Freedom Fighters (Ricky Dale Johnson & Joey Minnesota), Sammy Bach, and Eddie Peak</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Rhodes interviews the Freedom Fighters about next week's tag match, and their singles matches at <em>Malice In Wonderland</em>, particularly RDJ/Vessey, which will now be an "I Quit" match. RDJ says he's faces the biggest and baddest in TCW for over a decade, and he's still standing where so many others have disappeared. Vessey is dangerous, but there's no force on this Earth that can make him quit. Minnesota simply can't wait to break the Law.<br /></li><li>Elsewhere, Sammy Bach is seen chatting with some backstage personnel, when Eddie Peak explodes into frame, sending Bach crashing to the floor. He yells that if Bach thinks he's some kind of giant killer, then he's got another thing coming, and here's a taste. With that, he picks up Bach and hurls him into a pile of steel pipes stacked up against the far wall.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>77</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Benny Benson vs. Brent Hill w/John Anderson</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Brent Hill may have lost some of his form explosiveness, after his next injury, but he's compensated by becoming even better at controlling the action, and dictating the pace. That made this a very tightly contested match, just as Benson/Anderson was last week. Just like in that one, the Machines tried to use the numbers advantage to tip the balance, but Anderson was stopped by the surprising appearance of Benson's old tag team partner, Greg Black, making his TCW debut. Benson used the confusion this caused to score the revenge win on Hill.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, Benny Benson defeated Brent Hill in 10:14 by pinfall with a Shockwave From Next Year.</em></p><p>

<strong>74</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Koshiro Ino vs. Troy Tornado</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Much to Tornado's chagrin, he has to face the man he avoided last week, by calling an end to his open challenge gauntlet, as soon as Koshiro appeared. Ino punished him for that, and Tornado answered by unleashing a storm upon him... a storm of cheating. They battled to the outside, and Tornado was able to reverse an whip to send Ino sprawling into the barricade. Clearly content taking the count out, Tornado is shocked to see Ino rising, and he high tails it out of there. Ino chases after him, rather than answering the count.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, Koshiro Ino drew with Troy Tornado in 12:49 following a double count out.</em></p><p>

<strong>72</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rocky Golden vs. Wolf Hawkins w/Tommy Cornell</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Wolf Hawkins has a seemingly endless array of weapons at his disposal, from the mat to his feet to the air; he hits you from every angle, with deadly precision. That was matched by Rocky Golden's tremendous defensive game, never truly letting Hawkins settle in to dictate the pace. In the end, Tommy Cornell hopped on the apron to create a distraction for Wolf to hit Rocky with the World title, but Golden ducked, rolled up the champ, and with Cornell losing his mind, got the three count, punching his ticket to <em>Malice In Wonderland</em></li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Rocky Golden defeated Wolf Hawkins in 15:46 by pinfall with a roll up.</em></p><p>

TCW Presents Total Wrestling

Tuesday, Week 4, January 2013

Mayor Street Arena (New England)

Attendance: 12,573

 

Pre-Show

 

In a bout that had solid in-ring action but non-existent crowd heat, C-V-2 defeated KC Glenn and Edward Cornell in 8:37 when Casey Valentine defeated Edward Cornell by pinfall with a Flying V.

53

 

In a match that had some good action but non-existent crowd heat, Sammy Bach defeated Jacob Jett in 7:45 by submission with a Bach on Your Back.

71

 

Backstage: Shawn Doakes & Twin Gauge (Greg & Matt Gauge)

  • Doakes interviews the brothers about their television debut, tonight, against The Machines. They're honoured to be here, and while they know they have a lot to learn, they feel they are primed to hit the ground running, so the former champs had best not take them lightly.

56

 

In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, The Canadian Animals defeated Giant Tana and Harry Allen in 9:29 when Freddy Huggins defeated Giant Tana by pinfall with a Huggins Kiss.

68

 

--------------------------------

 

Live on GNN Total Sports

 

All Action Championship

Flying Jimmy Foxx © vs. Steve Flash

  • Steve Flash is no-nonsense, but he's also no shortcuts, playing it straight with the dancing, high flying champion. Flash's experience and mat skills grounded Foxx for a while, but once he broke loose, there was no going back.

In a bout that had solid in-ring action but not much in the way of heat, Flying Jimmy Foxx defeated Steve Flash in 7:32 by pinfall with a Flying Foxx. Flying Jimmy Foxx makes defence number 5 of his TCW All Action title.

50

 

Backstage: Canadian Animals (Edd Stone & Freddie Huggins w/Laura Huggins & Vita), Tommy Cornell, Joshua Taylor, Tracy Brendon, and Danny Fonzarelli

  • The Canadian Animals are horsing around for the camera, when they spot Tommy Cornell walking by, and call for him to join the fun. He silently deadpans their invitation, then walks away, the camera following him.
  • Muttering to himself, Cornell spots Joshua Taylor and gestures back the way he came, saying he hopes Taylor kicks their asses.
  • Tracy Brendon enters, saying that she has found the perfect partner for her husband, then brings in TCW's Doctor of Love, Danny Fonzarelli.
  • Taylor and Cornell exchange a glance, and Cornell shakes his head, says "sometimes I just don't know about this place," and walks away.

66

 

Chance Fortune w/Aaron Andrews vs. Eddie Peak

  • Chance Fortune tests his luck against the sadistic brute, Eddie Peak, and with the help of the International Champion rallying the crowd behind him, he makes it a fight. Genghis Rahn making his way to ringside, clearly to get in the head of Andrews, brings all of that screeching to a halt. When Rahn goes a step further, and actually interferes, Andrews snaps, and attacks with such a fury that it sends Rahn running to the back, with Andrews in hot pursuit. Eddie Peak picks up the scraps, and the victory.

In a match that had some good action and average heat, Eddie Peak defeated Chance Fortune in 6:57 by pinfall with a Peak Of Perfection.

73

 

Post-match: Eddie Peak, Chance Fortune, Sammy Bach, Aaron Andrews, and Genghis Rahn

  • Clearly not satisfied with just the 3 count, Peak picks up Fortune for more abuse, unopposed with Andrews' exit. Sammy Bach comes charging out from the back, and attacks Peak, but one misstep just leaves him one more victim for the Hardcore Assassin.
  • Backstage, Andrews is still chasing after Rahn, but the psychopath is able to put a locked door between them. Andrews yells to the camera that he will see Rahn on Sunday, and he's not just going out there to defend his title; he's going out there to kick Genghis Rahn's ass.

80

 

Twin Gauge (Greg & Matt Gauge) vs. The Machines (Brent Hill & John Anderson)

  • John Anderson must not have listened to Twin Gauge on the pre-show, because he clearly came into this looking past them, and is put through the ringer, early on. Once he finally escapes, The Machines regroup, and while Twin Gauge show glimpses of brilliance, they're too few and far between to overcome the top tag team of the last 5 years.

In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, The Machines defeated Twin Gauge in 6:36 when Brent Hill defeated Greg Gauge by pinfall with a King Of The Hill.

76

 

Danny Fonzarelli & The New Wave (Guide & Scout) vs. Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) & Jay Chord w/Floyd Goldworthy

  • Jay Chord supplements Texas Buffalo's size and strength with speed and precision, forming a very potent trio that gives the Tag Team challengers and their "interesting" partner a heap of trouble. They look to have things in hand, until Jay Chord connects with a superkick to Texas Pete that was intended for Guide, who made no mistake on the opportunity.

In a match that had some good action and average heat, Danny Fonzarelli and The New Wave defeated Jay Chord and Texas Buffalo in 8:13 when Guide defeated Texas Pete by pinfall with a Guided Missile.

75

 

Backstage: Kyle Rhodes, The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black), and Troy Tornado

  • Rhodes interviews newly reunited (and renamed, for trademark reasons) The Concept, who will make their TCW debut this Sunday, at Malice In Wonderland, against The Machines. Benson is over the moon to have his best friend again by his side, and Black says he couldn't sit on the sidelines while The Machines took advantage of his boy 2-on-1. Let's see how they like it when it's a fair fight.
  • Pre-recorded comments from Troy Tornado, who will go one-on-one with Koshiro Ino at Malice In Wonderland, following their double count-out last week. He says that a storm warning is in effect, but just like a family huddled in their trailer, all the warning in the world won't stop the Tornado, when it pays their home a visit.

64

 

Freedom Fighters (Ricky Dale Johnson & Joey Minnesota) vs. Bryan Vessey & Rick Law

  • The referee struggles throughout to keep this one on the rails, as tempers flare and tensions boil over. The match – or fight, rather – has many twists and turns, but in the end proves indecisive, as the bell sounds at the end of the television time limit. As officials separate them, Jason Azaria reminds us that there will be no time limits this Sunday, on PPV.

In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Freedom Fighters drew with Bryan Vessey and Rick Law in 20:00 when the time limit expired.

83

 

Rocky Golden, Koshiro Ino & Joel Bryant vs. The Syndicate (Tommy Cornell & Wolf Hawkins) & Troy Tornado

  • Definitely a more controlled affair than the last match, the unquestioned skill of the Syndicate meshed well with the questionable tactics of Troy Tornado, to put them in the driver's seat for the majority of the match. Ino eventually lost his temper with Tornado, who was legal at the time, chasing him around ringside. This lead him right into an ambush by the Syndicate, causing Rocky to come around to even the odds. Without anyone to tag, the already beaten down Joel Bryant couldn't fend off Tornado, who got the pinfall, and immediately threw it in the face of Ino, as officials separated everyone, and the show went off the air.

In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Troy Tornado and The Syndicate defeated Rocky Golden, Koshiro Ino and Joel Bryant in 18:53 when Troy Tornado defeated Joel Bryant by pinfall with a Star Maker.

Malice In Wonderland

 

 

World Heavyweight Championship

Rocky Golden vs. Tommy Cornell vs. Wolf Hawkins ©

Rocky Golden won last month's Psycho Circus battle royal to finally earn a rematch against the man who beat him for the title in September, Wolf Hawkins. Also in the match is the champion's mentor, and the man who helped him defeat Golden, Tommy Cornell, due to the events of the past few weeks. With this match contested under elimination rules, will The Syndicate work together to deny this opportunity to Golden, or will their pride and egos get the best of them?

 

International Championship

Aaron Andrews © vs. Genghis Rahn

Andrews put himself in the sights of Genghis Rahn when he ran out to even the odds of a 3-on-2 assault of the Freedom Fighters. Since then, Rahn has pinned the champion in tag team action, and has evaded any payback. Does Rahn have Andrews' number, or will this be Double A's night for redemption?

 

World Tag Team Championship

The New Wave (Guide & Scout) vs. Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) w/Floyd Goldworthy

The New Wave are one of the top teams of the last 15 years, with plenty of championship gold to their name. Texas Buffalo are a recent partnership that looked unstoppable... until The New Wave beat them in non-title competition, 3 weeks ago. Can lightning strike twice for the men in camo, or will the Buffalo's stampede continue?

 

"I Quit" Match

Ricky Dale Johnson vs. Bryan Vessey

From the day that Wolf Hawkins won the World title, RDJ has been campaigning for a match with him, to prove he's still the standard-bearer for justice in TCW. Bryan Vessey emphatically inserted himself in his path, as the prodigal son has returned from Japan with that championship in mind. These two have battled for months, and it all comes to a head here, when one man will have to say the words, and give up his golden dream. Is it Vessey's time to take his lethal shoot fighting to the big dance, or will RDJ's big fight experience and legendary ability to absorb punishment bring him back to the promised land?

 

Joey Minnesota vs. Rick Law

These two met at Psycho Circus without much fanfare, a match simply to jockey for position in TCW's competitive scene, but things turned ugly when Rick Law became enraged over losing the match, and used handcuffs to beat Minnesota into a bloody mess. Is that aggression the spark needed to defeat Minnesota, or is this the time to truly break the Law?

 

Koshiro Ino vs. Troy Tornado

Troy Tornado has never been shy about singing his own praises, but after missing over a year with a neck injury, he's been cocky even by his own standards. Koshiro Ino attempted to answer the challenge in an open gauntlet, but as soon as he appeared, Tornado called an abrupt end to the match. They then fought to a double countout, before Tornado picked up the victory in last week's main event 6-man tag. Is this the Kobra's chance to stop the storm, or will the Tornado continue its path of destruction?

 

The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black) vs. The Machines (Brent Hill & John Anderson)

The Machines have been a top tag team for years, ever since coming together in TCW. Benson & Black were one of America's best-loved units through most of the last decade, and while Benson has found success in TCW as a singles competitor, this will be Greg Black's Total debut. Which of these tag teams – legends in their own time – will win this dream match?

 

Sammy Bach vs. Eddie Peak

Eddie Peak is always on the warpath, but as of late, his sights have fallen on Sammy Bach, after the dark rocker pinned Killer Shark. Peak attacked Bach backstage, taking exception to Bach claiming he's a giant killer (which Bach hasn't been recorded saying), and then laid him out in the middle of the ring, last week. Can Sammy Bach slay the biggest dragon of all, or will he be just another hit for the Hardcore Assassin?

 

Joshua Taylor & Danny Fonzarelli w/Tracy Brendon vs. The Canadian Animals (Freddie Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita

Joshua Taylor is nothing if not a serious competitor. Of late, though, he's had to contend with the unending gamesmanship and hijinx of the Canadian Animals. Bringing in his wife, Tracy Brendon, to help manage his career, she's decided to fight comedic fire with comedic fire, enlisting TCW's Doctor of Love, Danny Fonzarelli, to be her man's partner. Can they coexist & coalesce in time to put the Animals down, or will the party continue for Stone & Huggins?

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Pre-Show</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>In a bout that had solid in-ring action but non-existent crowd heat, Jay Chord and Jacob Jett defeated KC Glenn and Edward Cornell in 9:54 when Jacob Jett defeated Edward Cornell by submission with a Jett Engine.</em></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but non-existent crowd heat, Giant Tana and Chance Fortune defeated Twin Gauge, C-V-2 and Harry Allen and Steve Flash in 9:55; the order of elimination was Twin Gauge first, then C-V-2, and finally Harry Allen and Steve Flash.</em></p><p>

<strong>66</strong></p><p> </p><p>

--------------------------------</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Live on PPV</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Koshiro Ino vs. Troy Tornado</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Much the same as their match on Total Wrestling, Ino brought the power, and Tornado brought the dirty tricks. In what looked to be a carbon copy of that match, Tornado tried to run away, but this time was caught by Ino, and brought back to the ring. Just as he looked about to put Tornado away, Ino was caught with a double leg takedown, and rolled up with both of Tornado's feet planted on the middle rope.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Troy Tornado defeated Koshiro Ino in 11:42 by pinfall, illegally using the ropes for leverage.</em></p><p>

<strong>77</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">International Championship</span></strong></p><p><strong>

Aaron Andrews © vs. Genghis Rahn</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>A wrestling match in name only, these two went at it like rabid animals. That's par for the course for Genghis Rahn, but not normally in the playbook of the International Champion. Shawn Doakes on commentary kept speculating that this played right into the challenger's hands, but those fears proved unnecessary, as Andrews got his opening, and connected with his patented Flying Body Press to retain the title.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, Aaron Andrews defeated Genghis Rahn in 7:53 by pinfall with a Flying Body Press. Aaron Andrews makes defence number 3 of his TCW International title.</em></p><p>

<strong>67</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">World Tag Team Championship</span></strong></p><p><strong>

The New Wave (Guide & Scout) vs. Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) © w/Floyd Goldworthy</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Texas Buffalo won these titles from The New Wave, back at Summer Showdown, in July, and this was reminiscent of the wars these two teams fought throughout the summer. The crowd was electric, and the New Wave carried themselves with a presence that had everyone from the front row to the rafters believing that this would be the night they regained those titles. It was not to be, though, as Floyd Goldworthy created a distraction at the key moment, and Texas Pete capitalized, breaking 30,002 hearts in the arena.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, Texas Buffalo defeated The New Wave in 10:13 when Texas Pete defeated Scout by pinfall with a Lone Star Drop. During the match we also had Floyd Goldworthy run in and attack Guide. Texas Buffalo make defence number 6 of their TCW World Tag Team titles.</em></p><p>

<strong>80</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Sammy Bach vs. Eddie Peak</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Eddie Peak is always sadistic and brutal, and if this was any different, it was only for the worse. Sammy Bach used every microscopic opportunity to fight like his life depended on it, which it possibly did. It looked to not be enough, and Peak closed in for the kill, but just as all seemed lost, Bach reached down deep, hooked an inside cradle, and was able to hold the shoulders down JUST long enough to get the 3, running from the ring as soon as the bell sounded, lest Peak's wrath put him in the hospital.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Sammy Bach defeated Eddie Peak in 11:22 by pinfall with a surprise roll up.</em></p><p>

<strong>67</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Danny Fonzarelli & Joshua Taylor w/Tracy Brendon vs. The Canadian Animals (Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Taylor isn't thrilled to be tagging with the Doctor of Love, and as much as possible, tries to do this on his own, not completely ignoring his partner, but certainly noticeably. This leaves him vulnerable to the constant shenanigans from the Animals and their associates. In the moment of truth, though, the Fonz comes through, blowing through the interference, and delivering the victory for his team.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Joshua Taylor and Danny Fonzarelli defeated The Canadian Animals in 9:15 when Danny Fonzarelli defeated Freddy Huggins by pinfall with a Retro Rocket.</em></p><p>

<strong>79</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black) vs. The Machines (John Anderson & Brent Hill)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>A tag team dream match, this was a very tightly contested affair, fought for long periods on the mat, complimented by some blistering exchanges between Benson & Anderson. The Machines played by the rules, intent on proving themselves the better team. As time wore on, their patience wore thin, and Anderson passed a chair to Hill, then grabbed the referee's attention to give his partner the opening he needed. Just as two weeks before, when he first appeared in TCW, Greg Black was there right when Benson needed him, tossing the chair to the floor, and sending Anderson packing, leaving Benson to pick up the win in a successful TCW debut for The Concept.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, The Concept defeated The Machines in 15:16 when Benny Benson defeated Brent Hill by pinfall with a Game Over.</em></p><p>

<strong>84</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Joey Minnesota vs. Rick Law</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Law played mind games early, denying Minnesota the brawl he wanted, forcing it to the mat. Minnesota was frustrated, but won the ground game, only for Law to catch him with his guard down, and lay waste to his rival. The brawl continues all over, with the ref constantly on the verge of throwing the match out, when Law tried to go back to the handcuffs he'd used during last-month's post-match attack, apparently fine getting disqualified. Minnesota manages to avoid becoming trapped, though, and brings it back to the ring, closing in on the kill. At the last second, Rick Law used his last burst of energy to draw the ref aside, and plant a kick squarely to Minnesota's crotch, to steal the victory, and even the score.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Rick Law defeated Joey Minnesota in 14:06 by pinfall, following a low blow.</em></p><p>

<strong>74</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">"I Quit" Match</span></strong></p><p><strong>

Ricky Dale Johnson vs. Bryan Vessey</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>RDJ is as seasoned a veteran of wars in the ring as anybody in the business, but as noted by Kyle Rhodes, Vessey came into this match looking even more dangerous than usual. It was all Johnson could do to fend off the submissions of Vessey, and when that didn't do the trick, Vessey brought his lethal arms and legs to bear. Through it all, RDJ showed an unwavering desire to fight on, and resourcefulness in every situation, as the brawl went all over the arena. In the end, that was the difference: Vessey would win the fight hands down on points, and might take it in the ring alone, but when it comes to the realm of no holds barred professional wrestling, where you have to not only beat your opponent physically, but mentally and emotionally as well, Ricky Dale Johnson had the fortitude and resolve to go longer, go bigger, and go badder.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Ricky Dale Johnson defeated Bryan Vessey in an I Quit match in 17:53 by submission.</em></p><p>

<strong>79</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">World Heavyweight Championship</span></strong></p><p><strong>

Rocky Golden vs. Tommy Cornell vs. Wolf Hawkins ©</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>This was the 2-on-1 fight everyone expected it to be, and while Rocky Golden's impeccable defence and tremendous strength kept him in it, he eventually was double teamed through the announce table. Cornell told Hawkins to get him in the ring, so they could eliminate Rocky, and have it out 1-on-1, but Hawkins wasn't willing to wait, turning on his mentor. What followed was a masterclass of precision wrestling, ended when Golden recovered, cleared Hawkins from the ring, and put Cornell away for the first elimination. Suddenly, it dawned on Wolf what he'd done, and that he'd now be alone to face the man who beat him just 5 days ago. Golden wrestled like a man possessed, having an answer for anything the champion threw at him. He lifted Hawkins up for The Rack, but before it was fully locked in, Wolf went for the eyes, got off a quick Full Moon Rising, and escaped with his title reign intact.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Wolf Hawkins defeated Tommy Cornell and Rocky Golden in an Elimination match in 24:42; the order of elimination was Tommy Cornell first, and then Rocky Golden. Wolf Hawkins makes defence number 4 of his TCW World Heavyweight title.</em></p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Live on GNN Total Sports</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Sammy Bach vs. Jay Chord</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Coming off his victory (and survival) over Eddie Peak, Bach faces someone more his size, in the second-generation wrestler with the biggest shoes to fill, Jay Chord. They let it all hang out, mesmerizing the crowd with blistering action, but in the end, the experience of Sammy Bach proved stronger than the Chord bloodline.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action but not much in the way of heat, Sammy Bach defeated Jay Chord in 9:05 by submission with a Bach on Your Back.</em></p><p>

<strong>83</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>In-Ring/Backstage: Sammy Bach, Jay Chord, Eddie Peak, The Syndicate (Wolf Hawkins & Tommy Cornell), and Rick Law</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Sammy Bach doesn't get time to celebrate his victory, as Eddie Peak overruns him with a savage attack. Jay Chord joins in the fun, playing buddy-buddy with Peak, but the Hardcore Assassin just makes him another victim.<br /></li><li>Backstage, The Syndicate and Rick Law cut a promo for their main event match against Rocky Golden, Joey Minnesota, and the new #1 contender, Ricky Dale Johnson. Cornell is a little sour about Hawkins getting him eliminated before Golden, but The Syndicate has the gold, and that's what matters, while Law looks forward to putting Minnesota down for the count once again.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>77</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black) vs. C-V-2 (Cameron Vessey & Casey Valentine)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>C-V-2 has the pedigree, the poise, and the training to be the next great tag team in TCW's history, but The Concept is coming off a huge victory in their company debut, and have no intention of squandering that momentum. C-V-2 push Benson & Black hard, but it's not enough to make the future now.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, The Concept defeated C-V-2 in 10:04 when Greg Black defeated Casey Valentine by pinfall with a Game Over.</em></p><p>

<strong>77</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Backstage: Texas Buffalo (American Buffalo & Texas Pete) w/Floyd Goldworthy, and Troy Tornado</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>With the World Tag Team Champions towering over him, Goldworthy says that his monsters have beaten every team that TCW has to offer, so now the company is giving a title shot to a team that only debuted two days ago. When Texas Buffalo is through with them, The Concept will be running back to dress up as puppets for ol' Rich, where they belong.<br /></li><li>From one title match to another, Troy Tornado explains that with his "decisive and inevitable" victory over Koshiro Ino, he's been granted a match at <em>The War To Settle The Score</em> with Aaron Andrews, for the International Championship. Andrews just came through a war with Genghis Rahn, but when it comes to a true force of nature, no man can hope to keep the Tornado at bay.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>67</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Danny Fonzarelli & Flying Jimmy Foxx vs. The Canadian Animals (Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>The Canadian Animals face off with maybe the only two men in TCW who can match them when it comes to partying. This was a farce, from start to finish, with a big dance contest, and even a game of rock-paper-scissors in the middle of the ring. In the end, the numbers game carried the day, and the All Action Champion fell victim of the Huggins Kiss, giving the Animals a measure of revenge on Fonzarelli.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, The Canadian Animals defeated Danny Fonzarelli and Flying Jimmy Foxx in 7:02 when Freddy Huggins defeated Flying Jimmy Foxx by pinfall with a Huggins Kiss.</em></p><p>

<strong>69</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Giant Tana & The L.A. Connection (Aaron Andrews & Chance Fortune) vs. Genghis Rahn & The Machines (John Anderson & Brent Hill)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>The psychotic Genghis Rahn made an odd partner for the ultra-serious Machines, but his brawling prowess was certainly an asset they were willing to use. On the other side of the ring, while the L.A. Connection are an established unit, Chance Fortune and Giant Tana showed a natural affinity as partners that Kyle Rhodes couldn't help but say reminded him of some of the great tag teams in history in their infancy. This chemistry allowed them to cancel out The Machines enough to give the International Champion an opening to do what he did at <em>Malice In Wonderland</em>, and put Rahn away.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Giant Tana and The L.A. Connection defeated Genghis Rahn and The Machines in 8:53 when Aaron Andrews defeated Genghis Rahn by pinfall with a Flying Body Press.</em></p><p>

<strong>75</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Backstage: Freedom Fighters (Ricky Dale Johnson & Joey Minnesota), Rocky Golden, Joshua Taylor, and Tracy Brendon</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>The other side of tonight's main event, Rocky Golden and the Freedom Fighters, cut a promo of their own. Golden isn't going to cry foul over the way his title match ended; he had his chance, and he missed. Now he'll put in the work to earn another opportunity, hopefully against a man like RDJ. Johnson says that it's been a while since he's held the championship, as the younger generation of Golden & Minnesota have made it to the top of the mountain. He can't wait for his chance at <em>The War To Settle The Score</em> to show that he's not done yet. Minnesota declines to comment, just wanting to get his hands on Rick Law, one more time.<br /></li><li>Elsewhere, Joshua Taylor and Tracy Brendon are chatting. Taylor says that he felt bad not being out there with Fonzarelli tonight, against the Canadian Animals. Brendon says that he beat the Animals, and now it's time for bigger and better things. She's working on finding an opponent for her man that can help him make a mark that no one can ignore.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>75</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Joel Bryant vs. Bryan Vessey</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Bryant is mostly known for his work in tag teams, but he is a former International Champion in his own right, and now back on his own, is looking for one last major singles run. He had quite the task here, with the always dangerous Bryan Vessey, but Bryant showed terrific positioning, never leaving himself open for Vessey's biggest shots, and neutralizing him with grounding holds. For all this, though, Bryant was never able to really mount the offence he needed to actually beat Vessey, and once he broke free, it was all over.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, Bryan Vessey defeated Joel Bryant in 12:17 by pinfall with a Vessey Driver.</em></p><p>

<strong>70</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rocky Golden & Freedom Fighters (Ricky Dale Johnson & Joey Minnesota) vs. Rick Law & The Syndicate (Wolf Hawkins & Tommy Cornell)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Rick Law was a one-time Syndicate member, during Brent Hill's lengthy injury, and that shared history allowed their team to take control. As the match wore on, personal rivalries boiled over, and the match broke into three simultaneous one-on-one brawls. In the ring, Rocky Golden was able to go two-for-two against Tommy Cornell, putting him away for the 1-2-3.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Rocky Golden and Freedom Fighters defeated Rick Law and The Syndicate in 22:27 when Rocky Golden defeated Tommy Cornell by pinfall with a Rocky Road.</em></p><p>

Tuesday, Week 2, February 2013</p><p>

Iowa State Fayre (Mid West)</p><p>

Attendance: 14,156</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Pre-Show</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but non-existent crowd heat, Joey Minnesota and KC Glenn defeated C-V-2 in 7:41 when Joey Minnesota defeated Casey Valentine by pinfall with an Empire Spiral.</em></p><p>

<strong>65</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>In a bout that had solid in-ring action but non-existent crowd heat, Genghis Rahn defeated Edward Cornell in 6:44 by pinfall with a Rahn To The Hills.</em></p><p>

<strong>55</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Backstage: Danny Fonzarelli and Jay Chord</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>The Doctor of Love is doing interviewing duties today, and Jay Chord makes no attempt to hide his disdain that this — THIS — is what his wrestling dream — his wrestling destiny — looks like, at this moment. Chord will be going one-on-one with Koshiro Ino, on tonight's program, and despite his string of losses, he intends to beat the Kobra just like his daddy beat Hooded Kudo, in America and Japan.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>60</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, Joshua Taylor and Joel Bryant defeated The Canadian Animals in 9:39 when Joshua Taylor defeated Edd Stone by submission with a Butterfly Lock.</em></p><p>

--------------------------------</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Live on GNN Total Sports</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">All Action Championship</span></strong></p><p><strong>

Flying Jimmy Foxx © vs. Jacob Jett</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>TCW's newest high flyer gets his chance to make history, against Total Wrestling's resident dancer, and while he strings together some impressive offence, on the ground and in the air, when Jimmy Foxx gets the crowd behind him, and locks it in gear, it's all over.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that had solid in-ring action but non-existent crowd heat, Flying Jimmy Foxx defeated Jacob Jett in 6:47 by pinfall with a Flying Foxx. Flying Jimmy Foxx makes defence number 6 of his TCW All Action title.</em></p><p>

<strong>52</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Twin Gauge (Greg & Matt Gauge) vs. Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) w/Floyd Goldworthy</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Another tall order for Twin Gauge, and another promising outing turned to ash, as for all their obvious ability, the Gauge boys don't yet have an answer for the size, strength, and dirty tricks of Texas Buffalo.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Texas Buffalo defeated Twin Gauge in 7:15 when Texas Pete defeated Matt Gauge by pinfall with a Lone Star Drop.</em></p><p>

<strong>63</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Backstage: The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black), The Freedom Fighters (Ricky Dale Johnson & Joey Minnesota), and Rocky Golden</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>The Concept talk about getting a title shot at <em>The War To Settle The Score</em>, and how Floyd Goldworthy said they didn't deserve it. Sure, they'd only had one match as a team in TCW, at that point, but it was a dream match 6 years in the making, against The Machines. If Texas Buffalo feels they don't deserve it, then they can bring their titles to the ring and show it. Put your money where your mouth is, because that's exactly what The Concept is going to do.<br /></li><li>In a separate promo, RDJ & Rocky Golden talk about teaming up to face The Syndicate, in tonight's main event. Minnesota says that he's heard Rick Law intends to be at ringside, so you'd best believe he'll be there, as well. If Law wants a fight, Minnesota will be happy to engage in a little police brutality.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>78</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The New Wave (Guide & Scout) vs. Harry Allen & Steve Flash</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Flash & Allen are both seasoned competitors, one in the indies, and one in the TCW ranks, but for all their merits, they are simply no match for The New Wave.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, The New Wave defeated Steve Flash and Harry Allen in 6:59 when Guide defeated Steve Flash by pinfall with a Wave Of Mutilation.</em></p><p>

<strong>73</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Aaron Andrews & The Pacific Connection (Giant Tana & Chance Fortune) vs. Troy Tornado & The Machines (John Anderson & Brent Hill)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Andrews' last challenger swaps out for his next challenger, in otherwise a rematch from last week. New is that Giant Tana & Chance Fortune have formalized themselves as a new team, with Andrews not feeling he can be a true partner for Fortune, with his singles commitments. All that said, The Machines come into this match spoiling for a fight, feeling embarrassed by last week's loss, and when paired with the hot hand of Troy Tornado, they get the revenge they were looking for.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, Troy Tornado and The Machines defeated Aaron Andrews and The Pacific Connection in 7:42 when John Anderson defeated Chance Fortune by pinfall with an Ammo Dump.</em></p><p>

<strong>77</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Koshiro Ino vs. Jay Chord</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>After weathering the storm of the Kobra's power, Jay Chord takes control with his unquestioned skill and seamless grace. He looks to have everything in hand, closing in on the big breakthrough victory that he's been looking for, but as always seems to be the case, he manages to slip on a banana peel, snatching defeat from the jaws of certain victory.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action but not much in the way of heat, Koshiro Ino defeated Jay Chord in 10:09 by pinfall with a Kobra's Bite.</em></p><p>

<strong>79</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Sammy Bach vs. Bryan Vessey</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Bach has been plagued by Eddie Peak, but still refuses to let it disrupt his focus, and he came at Vessey with everything he has. Bryan Vessey, for his part, was locked right in, making this a very intense match. Vessey grounded, pounded, and stretched Bach, but as he does so well, the dark rocker took any small opening he had, and blew it right up. As they came to a close, Bach looked in good shape for a huge victory, only for Eddie Peak to physically inject himself, behind the referee's back, feeding him straight into the waiting arms of Bryan Vessey.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Bryan Vessey defeated Sammy Bach in 10:51 by pinfall with a Super Vessey Plex.</em></p><p>

<strong>83</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>In-Ring/Backstage: Eddie Peak, Bryan Vessey, Sammy Bach, Joshua Taylor, and Tracy Brendon</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>After the bell, Eddie Peak continued the assault, once again leaving Bach laying. Unlike last week, though, he didn't add Vessey to the body count, the two men silently sizing each other up, before Peak slowly exited the ring.<br /></li><li>Backstage, Joshua Taylor is seen watching this on a monitor, shaking his head at having such a great match ruined. The camera zooms out to show Tracy Brendon at his side, saying that Taylor will get a chance to do something about it, because that man (Vessey) will be his opponent at <em>The War To Settle The Score</em>.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>71</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Ricky Dale Johnson & Rocky Golden w/Joey Minnesota vs. The Syndicate (Wolf Hawkins & Tommy Cornell) w/Rick Law</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>World Champion and challenger facing off, teamed with two men who it is announced will go one-on-one at <em>The War To Settle The Score</em>, while the men embroiled in the hottest blood feud in TCW stand in their respective corners. To say this got testy would be quite the understatement. Long-time TCW fans were treated to some lengthy exchanges between Cornell & RDJ, reminiscent of their many wars over the years, and everyone got their licks in, including Rick Law on the outside, sparking a brawl between he and Joey Minnesota, as the match came to the television time limit.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Ricky Dale Johnson and Rocky Golden drew with The Syndicate in 18:00 when the time limit expired.</em></p><p>

<strong>88</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>In-Ring: The Syndicate (Tommy Cornell & Wolf Hawkins), Rick Law, The Freedom Fighters (Ricky Dale Johnson & Joey Minnesota), and Rocky Golden</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>The bell did nothing to stop the fighting. If anything, not having the rules of a wrestling match simply let everyone cut loose, and the brawl was on in full. Officials and wrestlers emptied from the back to separate everyone.<br /></li><li>Ricky Dale Johnson got hold of a microphone, and said that if The Syndicate and Law are itching for a fight so bad, why not do this right. How about next week, they do it for real, 3-on-3 inside a steel cage?<br /></li><li>Wolf Hawkins begins to protest, but Tommy Cornell cuts off his protege, yelling that he isn't afraid of a fight, and that this is just another chance for The Syndicate to embarrass RDJ, just like they always do. It's on!</li></ul><p></p><p>

San Juan Cultural Center (Puerto Rico)</p><p>

Attendance: 10,000 (sellout)</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Pre-Show</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>In a bout that had solid in-ring action but non-existent crowd heat, Flying Jimmy Foxx and Steve Flash defeated Edward Cornell and KC Glenn in 7:31 when Flying Jimmy Foxx defeated Edward Cornell by pinfall with a Flying Foxx.</em></p><p>

<strong>51</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but non-existent crowd heat, Koshiro Ino defeated Jacob Jett in 8:30 by pinfall with a Kobra's Bite.</em></p><p>

<strong>65</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Backstage: Shawn Doakes and C-V-2 (Cameron Vessey & Casey Valentine)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Doakes interviews C-V-2 about their match with new team, The Pacific Connection (Giant Tana & Chance Fortune), later tonight. They've heard people talk about how those two show such natural chemistry, but that's just talk. What they should be talking about is the pedigree of C-V-2, and how much experience they have teaming together, at this young age. They should be talking about THEIR chemistry, because C-V-2 is radioactive.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>55</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Joel Bryant defeated Jay Chord in 9:38 by pinfall with an One Shot Drop.</em></p><p>

<strong>67</strong></p><p> </p><p>

--------------------------------</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Live on GNN Total Sports</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The New Wave (Guide & Scout) vs. The Canadian Animals (Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>The Canadian Animals brought all their tricks, tactics, and numbers to the fight, but if there's one team in all of wrestling that knows how to go to war at a disadvantage, it's The New Wave, and they show here why they are still very much in the conversation for tag team contenders.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, The New Wave defeated The Canadian Animals in 8:26 when Guide defeated Freddy Huggins by pinfall with a Guided Missile.</em></p><p>

<strong>79</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Harry Allen & Twin Gauge (Greg & Matt Gauge) vs. Genghis Rahn & Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) w/Floyd Goldworthy</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Allen and the Gauge boys bring a mix of experience and youthful energy, heart and talent, but it's not enough to overcome the three mountains of man that stand across from them.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Genghis Rahn and Texas Buffalo defeated Harry Allen and Twin Gauge in 7:41 when American Buffalo defeated Greg Gauge by pinfall with The Stampede.</em></p><p>

<strong>63</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Backstage: Troy Tornado, Danny Fonzarelli, and The Canadian Animals (Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>A promo from Troy Tornado plays, in which he delivers another storm warning, saying that the weather has shaped and reshaped the course of nations, throughout history, and when he wins the International Championship, he'll do the same to TCW.<br /></li><li>Danny Fonzarelli is shown strutting down a hallway, greeting everyone he passes as only the Doctor of Love can. He is stopped by the Canadian Animals, who want to know what he's smiling about, since they beat him the last time they met. With Joshua Taylor moving on to other things, they challenge Fonz to find another partner — if there even is someone desperate enough to join him — and meet them at <em>The War To Settle The Score</em>.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>62</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Pacific Connection (Giant Tana & Chance Fortune) vs. C-V-2 (Cameron Vessey & Casey Valentine)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>C-V-2 are true to their words, showing that they can out-match and out-class either Giant Tana or Chance Fortune. The new found magic of The Pacific Connection shines through, though, as when they get their one opening, the pair blow through their opposition, to victory.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, The Pacific Connection defeated C-V-2 in 6:45 when Chance Fortune defeated Casey Valentine by pinfall with a Stroke of Luck.</em></p><p>

<strong>64</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Sammy Bach & Joshua Taylor w/Tracy Brendon vs. Bryan Vessey & Eddie Peak</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Bach certainly came into this fired up, after suffering at the hands of Vessey & Peak last week, and Taylor is a fighter looking to take that next step, but for as good as each of them looked individually, they just weren't able to come together as a team, and that cost them a world of pain. Peak and Vessey clearly weren't interested in the W, and when Bach started firing, Peak simply cracked him with a chair.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Sammy Bach and Joshua Taylor defeated Bryan Vessey and Eddie Peak in 10:42 when Eddie Peak was disqualified while fighting Sammy Bach.</em></p><p>

<strong>78</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>In-Ring/Backstage: Eddie Peak, Bryan Vessey, Sammy Bach, Joshua Taylor w/Tracy Brendon, Kyle Rhodes, and Rocky Golden</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>With the match no longer on the line, Peak decided to really show why he's called the Hardcore Assassin, brutalizing Bach with the chair, until the steel was so bent and broken it wasn't recognizable. Peak then set up a table, and looked to powerbomb Bach through it, but then motioned for Vessey (who had blindsided Taylor) to deliver a crushing Vessey Plex to Taylor, through the steel and wood, while Tracy Brendon could only look on helplessly.<br /></li><li>Backstage, Kyle Rhodes is joined by Rocky Golden, who will take part in tonight's huge 6-man tag steel cage match. He's proud to stand beside the Freedom Fighters, in that battle, and promises not to let them or the fans down. He'll also be facing Tommy Cornell one-on-one at <em>The War To Settle The Score</em>, and looks forward to putting himself right back in the title hunt. There's nothing he'd like more than to be interviewed by Rhodes again in two weeks, about facing Ricky Dale Johnson for the World Heavyweight Championship.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>76</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><ul><li>A treat for TCW fans, with another look at the dream match between The Concept and The Machines, with International champion and challenger as their respective partners. The match featured lots of mat wrestling, supplemented by punishing suplexes from Anderson, aerial maneuvers from Benson, the all around gung ho stylings of Andrews, and Troy Tornado's dirty tricks and psychology. In the end, the babyfaces rose to the occasion, and Andrews put Hill away with his patented Flying Body Press.</li></ul><p></p><p>

TCW Presents Total Wrestling

Tuesday, Week 4, February 2013

Mauna Lai Sports Club (Hawaii)

Attendance: 8,082

76

 

--------------------------------

 

Live on GNN Total Sports

 

Joshua Taylor and Twin Gauge (Greg & Matt Gauge) vs. Bryan Vessey and C-V-2 (Cameron Vessey & Casey Valentine)

  • The two youngest teams in TCW team with two men who will go one-on-one at The War To Settle The Score, Joshua Taylor & Bryan Vessey. C-V-2, of course, contains Bryan Vessey's nephew, and perhaps it's this familiarity that tips the match in their favour. Whatever the catalyst, the elder Vessey sends an emphatic message to his PPV opponent, by utilizing the top rope version of his finisher for the victory.

In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Bryan Vessey and C-V-2 defeated Joshua Taylor and Twin Gauge in 7:58 when Bryan Vessey defeated Greg Gauge by pinfall with a Super Vessey Plex.

69

 

Steve Flash vs. Jacob Jett

  • Two men at opposite ends of the age spectrum, yet both early in their TCW career, who were unsuccessful in All Action title challenges, look to get back in the championship picture. Steve Flash certainly has the ability to compete in Total Wrestling, but it seems that his opportunity may have simply come too late, as the young high flyer is able to pick up his first televised victory in TCW.

In a bout that had solid in-ring action but non-existent crowd heat, Jacob Jett defeated Steve Flash in 6:24 by pinfall with a Jett Take Off.

59

 

Aaron Andrews and The Pacific Connection (Giant Tana & Chance Fortune) vs. Jay Chord and The Machines (John Anderson & Brent Hill)

  • The Machines teaming with arguably the most talented second-generation wrestler the sport has ever seen certainly gives them the edge on paper, but the friendship and chemistry of the L.A./Pacific Connection balances the scales. In the end, it didn't come down to any of them, as Andrews' challenger this Sunday, Troy Tornado, came to ringside to intervene. It didn't quite go as planned, as Tornado inadvertently struck Jay Chord, leaving him wide open for Aaron Andrews to take it home.

In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Aaron Andrews and The Pacific Connection defeated Jay Chord and The Machines in 7:46 when Aaron Andrews defeated Jay Chord by pinfall with a Flying Body Press.

76

 

In-Ring/Backstage: Aaron Andrews, Troy Tornado, The Canadian Animals (Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita, Danny Fonzarelli, and Koshiro Ino

  • Andrews gets on the microphone, after the match, and tells the retreating Troy Tornado that he hopes Tornado has some better tricks up his sleeve than that, or else he'd better prepare to have his storm warning cancelled.
  • Jumping backstage, The Canadian Animals approach Danny Fonzarelli, making fun of the Doctor of Love, saying he's had a week to find a partner, and yet he's standing all alone. After a minute of this, Fonzarelli simply points over their shoulders, revealing none other than The Kobra, Koshiro Ino, much to the Animals' chagrin.

64

 

Sammy Bach and The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black) vs. Eddie Peak and Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) w/Floyd Goldworthy

  • Eddie Peak is no stranger to teaming with American Buffalo, having run together in a stable early in their respective TCW careers, and combined with Texas Pete, they form the scariest trio we've seen in action all year. Sammy Bach certainly isn't slouching, bringing in The Concept as partners, for this double-preview match. Bach & The Concept get their licks in, to be sure, but with a timely assist from Floyd Goldworthy, Greg Black falls victim of the Hardcore Assassin.

In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Eddie Peak and Texas Buffalo defeated Sammy Bach and The Concept in 10:56 when Eddie Peak defeated Greg Black by pinfall with a Peak Of Perfection.

74

 

In-Ring/Backstage: Sammy Bach, Eddie Peak, Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) w/Floyd Goldworthy, and Joey Minnesota

  • With Texas Buffalo putting up the road block, Eddie Peak looks to continue the assault, but Sammy Bach shows that he can get hardcore, too, reminding Peak and everyone else that he also made his name in DAVE's extreme environment. Swinging a chair wildly, he gets Goldworthy to call Texas Buffalo into full retreat, then flies into the ring. Peak puts up a big boot to cut him off at the pass, but Bach ducks himself and the chair out of the way, hits the ropes, and launches himself and the steel full throttle into Eddie Peak's face, sending him all the way to the floor. Bach stands tall, heading into The War To Settle The Score.
  • Backstage, Joey Minnesota talks about his match with Tommy Cornell tonight, and No DQ against Rick Law on Sunday. He doesn't hold last week's cage match against Cornell; he just did what he always does, which is let others fight his battles, to maintain his place on top. Rick Law is the one that needs to pay for his crimes, and at The War To Settle The Score, Joey Minnesota is... well, just what the show's name says.

79

 

Ricky Dale Johnson & Rocky Golden vs. Wolf Hawkins & Rick Law

  • While not in the confines of a cage, this week, RDJ and Golden approached this match as just as much a brawl and a war. Hawkins used his all-around attack to disrupt whenever possible, and Law reminded everyone that his fists are deadly weapons, making this a very even contest, and a hot brawl throughout. In the end, Golden was able to neutralize Law's attempt at a double team, leaving Johnson to pin the champion clean in the middle of the ring, 5 days before their title match.

In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Ricky Dale Johnson and Rocky Golden defeated Wolf Hawkins and Rick Law in 17:15 when Ricky Dale Johnson defeated Wolf Hawkins by pinfall with a Southern Justice.

80

 

Joey Minnesota vs. Tommy Cornell

  • 21 months prior, this match headlined Total Mayhem XV, and Minnesota's only World Heavyweight title reign came to an end. While lacking the personal animosity of that day, they brought what they've learned about each other to the table, and proved once again to be mirror images of each other, in terms of fighting style. We'll never know who would be the better man on this night, as Rick Law & Wolf Hawkins injected themselves in the match, bringing RDJ & Rocky Golden out to even the odds. Wolf Hawkins, shaking off the effects of tonight's loss - and possibly fuelled by it - created just the right situation for RDJ to inadvertently knock down Golden, then drew his and the referee's attention away from the ring, allowing Rick Law to behead Minnesota with the Long Arm Of The Law. Cornell appeared torn, but then decided not to look a gift horse in the mouth, making the cover for the victory.

In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Tommy Cornell defeated Joey Minnesota in 17:51 by pinfall.

82

 

In-Ring: Rocky Golden, Freedom Fighters (Ricky Dale Johnson & Joey Minnesota), The Syndicate (Wolf Hawkins & Tommy Cornell), and Rick Law

  • As the sides separate, Golden and Johnson exchange words. RDJ gets a microphone, and says that it was an accident, but if Golden wants to get in his face about it, maybe the next one won't be. Golden says that he'll be rooting for Johnson on Sunday, because he'd like nothing more than to beat TCW's standard-bearer for the gold, in front of the whole world.
  • Hawkins chimes in to say that this is cute, but he feels it necessary to remind everyone that HE is the standard-bearer of TCW, not RDJ, not Rocky Golden, and not even his mentor, Tommy Cornell. If anyone has any doubt about that, just tune in to The War To Settle The Score and he'll prove it, once again.

They picked up the victory over The Machines to earn this opportunity, but doubts linger that the team is back up to full strength so quickly, and Texas Buffalo have proven to be dominant champions.

Rocky Golden has made it clear that he sees a victory here as his ticket right back into the title scene, while Cornell is always looking for an opportunity to avenge his last two title reigns ending at the hands of Golden. With so much for both to prove, which man will get his hand raised at the end of this clash of titans?</em></p><p> </p><p> <strong>Sammy Bach vs. Eddie Peak</strong></p><p> <em>A rematch from last month, where Sammy Bach scored an upset victory with a roll-up. Eddie Peak has gotten increasingly more brutal, interrupting matches, and launching post-match assaults on Bach at every turn, including a vicious chair barrage two weeks ago. Last week, Bach finally answered back, scoring with a steel chair of his own, to stand tall heading into this show. Was that the change in momentum Bach needed to pick up another victory over the Hardcore Assassin, or will Peak get the decisive win he's been looking for, over the would-be giant killer?</em></p><p> </p><p> <strong>Joshua Taylor w/Tracy Brendon vs. Bryan Vessey</strong></p><p> <em>Tracy Brendon went to TCW officials to set up this match, feeling that this is just the opportunity her husband needs to take his career to the next level. Bryan Vessey is in an even meaner mood than usual, though, after being made to say "I Quit" last month. Is this the night that Joshua Taylor takes the next step, or will the veteran Vessey slam the door shut?</em></p><p> </p><p> <strong>Danny Fonzarelli & Koshiro Ino vs. The Canadian Animals (Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita</strong></p><p> <em>Danny Fonzarelli came in as Joshua Taylor's partner last month, to defeat The Canadian Animals.

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Live on PPV</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Danny Fonzarelli & Koshiro Ino vs. The Canadian Animals (Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>The Animals wisely stay away from Ino as much as possible, and while Fonz can hold his own with crazy antics, and enjoys a considerable size advantage over both Huggins and Stone, he can't overcome the numbers game on his own. The Kobra plays it by the rules, not getting involved, but when the Animals try to extend their trickery to include him, Ino shows that he's nobody's fool. Once Ino enters the match, it's game over.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Danny Fonzarelli and Koshiro Ino defeated The Canadian Animals in 7:59 when Koshiro Ino defeated Freddy Huggins by pinfall with a Kobra's Bite.</em></p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">International Championship</span></strong></p><p><strong>

Aaron Andrews © vs. Troy Tornado</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>A match that had a little of everything, as the athletic, young all-arounder champion faced a man who fit that description exactly, a few years earlier. Tornado's style has toned down to take fewer chances, replacing that reckless abandon with a killer instinct for questionable tactics. That push-pull played out for over 10 minutes, going step-for-step, before Troy Tornado created just enough of an opening to score with the Star Maker, and become a 2-time International Champion.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Troy Tornado defeated Aaron Andrews in 12:02 by pinfall with a Star Maker.</em></p><p><em>

Troy Tornado wins the TCW International title.</em></p><p>

<strong>78</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Pacific Connection (Giant Tana & Chance Fortune) vs. The Machines (John Anderson & Brent Hill)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Pacific Connection have quickly made their mark through an uncanny natural chemistry, and that was again on display in this contest, but the finely-tuned Machines were simply not going to be denied.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, The Machines defeated The Pacific Connection in 8:09 when Brent Hill defeated Giant Tana by pinfall with a King Of The Hill.</em></p><p>

<strong>86</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Sammy Bach vs. Eddie Peak</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Sammy Bach had no interest in reliving last month's slow dissection of his person, even though he walked away (barely) with the victory in that match. Here, he pushed the pace, kept Peak off balance, and took the fight right to the Hardcore Assassin. That momentum also gave Peak the opportunity to make Bach go splat, and he certainly didn't hesitate to do so. Late in the match, Bach was given an opportunity to put Peak away, after the latter at steel on the ring steps, but Peak's power proved enough to overcome the adversity, and finally get the victory over Sammy Bach that he so craved.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that featured great action and average heat, Eddie Peak defeated Sammy Bach in 8:58 by pinfall with a Peak of Perfection.</em></p><p>

<strong>80</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">World Tag Team Championship</span></strong></p><p><strong>

The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black) vs. Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) © w/Floyd Goldworthy</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>A size mismatch, to be sure, but as noted by Kyle Rhodes on commentary, The Concept's previous home gave them ample experience fighting against lumbering giants. They put that to good use, avoiding the mistake that Sammy Bach made in the last match, of only going full speed, all the time, instead mixing fast and slow, in the air and on the ground, to keep Texas Buffalo off balance. The monstrous Tag champs were still able to impose their will at times, though, and the match looked like it could go either way, when Floyd Goldworthy picked his opportune moment to tip the balance in his favour, looking to create a repeat of last month's title defence. This time, though, Greg Black showed his impeccable timing that served The Concept so well against The Machines, coming through at the moment of truth, and hooking up with Benny Benson for their patented tandem strike, and crowning our second new champions of the evening.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, The Concept defeated Texas Buffalo in 10:09 when Benny Benson defeated American Buffalo by pinfall with a Game Over. The Concept win the TCW World Tag Team titles.</em></p><p>

<strong>82</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Joshua Taylor w/Tracy Brendon vs. Bryan Vessey</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Two men who made their mark in the intense arena of puroresu took it to each other on their feet and on the mat in a way that few in the American scene can. Joshua Taylor came into this match looking to take his career to the next level, and with the performance he put on, he may have accomplished just that, but on this night, it wasn't enough for victory. Bryan Vessey defends the gate, putting all challengers on notice.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Bryan Vessey defeated Joshua Taylor in 8:44 by pinfall with a Vessey Driver.</em></p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">No Disqualification</span></strong></p><p><strong>

Joey Minnesota vs. Rick Law</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>To the surprise of nobody, this was a brawl from start to finish, and went all over the arena. Rick Law's famously devastating right hand was his weapon of choice, while Minnesota demonstrated great vision for his environment, and how to make the most of any situation. The match eventually made it back to the ring, where it had to end, and perhaps inevitably, Rick Law turned to his trusty handcuffs. He snapped them around Minnesota's wrist, and dragged his stunned foe to the bottom rope, but just before getting the cuffs around it, Minnesota, picked an ankle, grabbed the other end of the handcuffs, and closed them around Rick Law's right wrist, neutralizing his two most deadly weapons at once. Soon after, an Empire Spiral put the Law down for good.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Joey Minnesota defeated Rick Law in 12:58 by pinfall with an Empire Spiral.</em></p><p>

<strong>83</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Backstage: Kyle Rhodes and The Syndicate (Wolf Hawkins & Tommy Cornell)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Rhodes interviews The Syndicate about their matches tonight. Wolf Hawkins is supremely confident, in taking on his mentor's long-standing rival, and promises a clean sweep by The Syndicate, not only because of their unmatched abilities, but because their unity transcends anything anyone can throw at them.<br /></li><li>Cornell lets his protege finish, and while he echoes his confidence, there is one thing he needs to add... or maybe subtract. This past week, Joey Minnesota said something that hit home, implying that Tommy Cornell needs help to win matches. TOMMY. CORNELL. He's faced the best, beaten them all, and doesn't need any help to do it. Tonight, he wants Wolf Hawkins to stay in the back for his match, to remind the world who Tommy Cornell really is.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>76</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rocky Golden vs. Tommy Cornell</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>True to his word, Cornell came to the ring alone, and Golden & he settled in for the long haul. Just because he was on his own doesn't mean Cornell played fair, though, as he's not afraid to bend the rules, and use the referee's leniency for all it's worth. They were well on their way to another terrific match in their history when a man (eventually identified as Jay Chord) snuck in from the crowd, crouched to hide beside the ring, and delivered a shot to the back of Rocky Golden as he ran the ropes. Golden stumbled straight into a small package from the dazed Tommy Cornell, and stayed down for the three. Chord slipped away, seemingly unseen by Cornell.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had excellent in-ring action and a good crowd, Tommy Cornell defeated Rocky Golden in 12:39 by pinfall.</em></p><p>

<strong>83</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">World Heavyweight Championship</span></strong></p><p><strong>

Ricky Dale Johnson vs. Wolf Hawkins</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>While not the most gifted man on the mat, RDJ has always been able to deliver a big match feel, and in his first challenge against the young, first-time champion, this was no different. Hawkins clearly wanted to not just beat the veteran, but make a statement, and this lead him to try going bigger and more spectacular than he otherwise might. RDJ, being perfectly comfortable in these main event situations, was ready to capitalize on any mistake, big or small. TCW's long-time leader looked to be closing in on victory, on a night that had already proven to be a bad one for defending champions, when Jay Chord again appeared, this time making no secret of his presence, jumping onto the apron, luring RDJ over, and dropping to the floor to argue with the referee. All this allowed Wolf Hawkins to retrieve the World Championship, and plant it right between the eyes of RDJ. Tossing the belt aside, Chord released the referee in time to see Hawkins connect with a Full Moon Rising, to retain. Chord joined Hawkins in the ring to celebrate, and Jason Azaria's final words on commentary were about Rip Chord's son seemingly joining a reborn Syndicate.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Wolf Hawkins defeated Ricky Dale Johnson in 23:08 by pinfall with a Full Moon Rising. Wolf Hawkins makes defence number 5 of his TCW World Heavyweight title.</em></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but non-existent crowd heat, Flying Jimmy Foxx defeated Jacob Jett in 7:28 by pinfall with a Flying Foxx. Flying Jimmy Foxx makes defence number 7 of his TCW All Action title.</em></p><p>

<strong>Joel Bryant vs. Rick Law</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Bryant gave Law an intense fight, but fuelled by his loss to Joey Minnesota, Rick Law was simply not to be denied.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, Rick Law defeated Joel Bryant in 7:31 by pinfall with a Long Arm Of The Law.</em></p><p>

<strong>72</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Aaron Andrews & Joshua Taylor w/Tracy Brendon vs. C-V-2 (Cameron Vessey & Casey Valentine)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>C-V-2 used hit-and-run tactics to lure Andrews into making a mistake, then settled in to go to work on the former-International champion. When Joshua Taylor got the tag, he showed that the fight he put up against Bryan Vessey - still very much on the lips of fans and commentators - was no fluke, as he blew the match wide open. With the double-teaming neutralized, Taylor brought Andrews back in for the big finish.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Aaron Andrews and Joshua Taylor defeated C-V-2 in 8:13 when Aaron Andrews defeated Casey Valentine by pinfall with a Flying Body Press.</em></p><p>

<strong>69</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rocky Golden, Koshiro Ino & Danny Fonzarelli vs. Troy Tornado & The Canadian Animals (Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Tornado wasn't enthused about his partners, but they won him over by dive bombing Ino, and hand-delivering his prone form to the new International Champion. Ino eventually fought free to tag in Fonzarelli, who ran through the Animals, only to get taken out by Tornado. Fonz was able to weather the storm and get to Golden, who cleaned the Animals out, and tagged in an eager Ino for a final showdown with Tornado. Troy Tornado wasn't interested in celebrating his title victory that way, and tagged himself out to a dazed Edd Stone, leaving him to his fate.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Rocky Golden, Koshiro Ino and Danny Fonzarelli defeated Troy Tornado and The Canadian Animals in 8:35 when Koshiro Ino defeated Edd Stone by pinfall with a Kobra's Bite.</em></p><p>

<strong>In-Ring & Backstage: Koshiro Ino, Rocky Golden, Troy Tornado, The Syndicate (Wolf Hawkins & Tommy Cornell) w/Jay Chord</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>With the victory secured, Koshiro Ino called to a departing Tornado, and yelled something in Japanese to him. Rocky Golden took the microphone, and said that his friend wants to face Troy Tornado for the International Championship. The last time they went one-on-one, Tornado barely escaped by the skin of his teeth, and Ino doesn't think the new champion has enough luck in his body to do it a second time. Tornado had looked back to hear this, but left without any reply.<br /></li><li>Backstage, Tommy Cornell and Wolf Hawkins are standing with the man who aided both of them in securing victory, at <em>The War To Settle The Score</em>. Cornell wants to know what's going on, because he clearly said that he wanted to do it on his own. Hawkins replies that The Syndicate followed Cornell's lead for years, but now that Wolf is the World Champion, he's in charge. He's decided to rebuild The Syndicate to its past glory, and the first step in that is recruiting wrestling's greatest son, Jay Chord. With a big smile, Chord offers Cornell a handshake, but is left hanging, as Cornell slowly walks away. As the scene fades, Hawkins says not to worry; he'll come around.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">World Tag Team Contendership</span></strong></p><p><strong>

The New Wave (Guide & Scout) vs. The Machines (John Anderson & Brent Hill</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Another episode in the rivalry that has defined the tag division in TCW for a half decade, both teams took their time, careful not to make the first mistake. After letting Scout take the lead on the mat, Guide tried to up the tempo, but John Anderson was on the spot with a key cut-off that put The Machines in the driver's seat for the long haul. The New Wave battled back, and both teams seemingly pulled out everything from their greatest hits package, leading Shawn Doakes to remark that of all the times we've seen these two teams go to war, this may be the most epic struggle we've witnessed. In the end, John Anderson demonstrated why he's been called "the human arsenal", having one more bullet in the chamber, for the final showdown.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action but not much in the way of heat, The Machines defeated The New Wave in 17:38 when John Anderson defeated Scout by pinfall with an Ammo Dump.</em></p><p>

<strong>83</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Backstage: Kyle Rhodes, The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black), and Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) w/Floyd Goldworthy</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>With The Machines being crowned the new #1 contenders, Kyle Rhodes interviews the new World Tag Team Champions, The Concept. Greg Black says that he debuted in TCW against The Machines, and people called it a dream match, years in the making. He'll bet that people want to see it again - heck, HE wants to see it again - and The Concept won't disappoint. Rhodes reminds the champs that this weekend, on the debut episode of Saturday Night Showcase (right here on GNN Total Sports), they'll be putting those titles on the line against Texas Buffalo. Benny Benson isn't worried; he's not overlooking the challenge, but he's not worried. The Concept is already back in top form, and when they're at their best, there's nobody better.<br /></li><li>We then get words from Floyd Goldworthy, flanked by the massive members of Texas Buffalo. He says that any great team can have an off night, but that it won't happen again. Texas Buffalo will expose The Concept for the flimsy puppets they are (alluding to their SWF characters), and then go on to show that Machines break just as easily as men.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>72</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Freedom Fighters (Ricky Dale Johnson & Joey Minnesota) vs. The Syndicate (Wolf Hawkins & Tommy Cornell) w/Jay Chord</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>With emotions running high between Hawkins & Cornell, RDJ upset with Syndicate schemes again robbing him of the World Title, and Joey Minnesota finally free to focus on the task at hand, this was a raucous affair. Jay Chord interfered to isolate RDJ, and while that seemed to go unnoticed by Cornell, when he got involved a second time, to cut off a Joey Minnesota hot tag, Cornell was visibly displeased. Wolf Hawkins got his mentor and partner back into it, though, and The Syndicate went to work. RDJ finally got a return tag, and roared into action, clearing out Hawkins, and turning to Cornell, who squared up to trade bombs with his longest-tenured nemesis. They never got the chance to settle things, though, as Jay Chord flew into the ring, and attacked RDJ, resulting in a disqualification.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Freedom Fighters defeated The Syndicate in 20:12 when Tommy Cornell was disqualified when Jay Chord ran in and attacked Ricky Dale Johnson.</em></p><p>

<strong>86</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>In-Ring: Freedom Fighters (Ricky Dale Johnson & Joey Minnesota), and The Syndicate (Wolf Hawkins & Tommy Cornell) w/Jay Chord</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Hawkins joined Chord in the beatdown on RDJ, while Cornell stood back, dumbfounded to have lost this way. Joey Minnesota broke up the party by retrieving a chair, clearing the ring of The Syndicate. While Hawkins & Chord laughed at their job well done, a now fuming Tommy Cornell gathered a microphone, and said that the last thing he would ever need is help in dealing with Ricky Dale Johnson, a man he's beaten time and time again. He wants RDJ one-on-one, in next week's main event, and if anyone interferes, on either side, they'll have to deal with Cornell for a dose of Rough Justice. Johnson, having collected himself, doesn't waste any time in accepting the challenge.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>Backstage: Shawn Doakes and Twin Gauge (Greg & Matt Gauge</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Twin Gauge are excited to be part of the debut episode of Saturday Night Showcase, and plan to make this night the beginning of TWO great things: This program, and Twin Gauge's winning ways. They're young, and know that it's a learning process to figure out how to win, but they're also young & hungry. Tonight, The Canadian Animals are going to learn just that.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Live on GNN Total Sports</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Edward Cornell vs. Jay Chord w/Wolf Hawkins</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Jay Chord's first time in the ring as a member of the reborn Syndicate, he faces the younger cousin of Tommy Cornell, making his televised debut. The elder Cornell didn't make an appearance, but the World Champion did, injecting himself towards the end, even though Jay Chord seemed to have everything in hand. Necessary or not, Jay Chord finally managed not to slip on the proverbial banana peel, picking up his very first pinfall victory in TCW.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but non-existent crowd heat, Jay Chord defeated Edward Cornell in 8:17 by pinfall with a Cradle Piledriver.</em></p><p>

<strong>Backstage/Video: Shawn Doakes, The Machines (John Anderson & Brent Hill), The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black), and Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) w/Floyd Goldworthy</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Shawn Doakes interviews the newly-minted #1 contenders, The Machines, about tonight's World Tag Team Championship rematch. They could say that they don't care who wins, but that would be a lie. They know that they can beat anyone in TCW, so regardless who wins, they'll be relieving them of the titles at <em>Just Another Day</em>. That said, they'd like nothing more than to do it against The Concept, who go catapulted straight into a title match, just because they got a lucky win over The Machines, in their debut. 99 out of 100 times, The Machines beat The Concept; they've already had their one.<br /></li><li>A video plays, setting up that match, taking place in tonight's main event.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>71</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Sammy Bach vs. Cameron Vessey w/Casey Valentine</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Vessey was able to demonstrate just how balanced he is as a talent, and Valentine on the outside tipped things in his favour, but in the end, nothing that C-V-2 could do could stop the Bach train, once he got it on the tracks.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Sammy Bach defeated Cameron Vessey in 7:52 by submission with a Bach on Your Back.</em></p><p>

<strong>76</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Twin Gauge (Greg & Matt Gauge) vs. The Canadian Animals (Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>TCW's other young prospect team got their moment in the sun against the Canadian Animals, and they frustrated the veteran team for quite a while, before the ladies on the outside got their men in line. Despite that, when Greg Gauge finally got the tag from his exhausted brother, he exploded into action, and looked to be closing in on victory when Freddy Huggins (not the legal man) met him at the pass with a superkick, and Edd Stone brought it on home.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, The Canadian Animals defeated Twin Gauge in 9:39 when Edd Stone defeated Greg Gauge by pinfall with a Party's Over.</em></p><p>

<strong>Backstage/Video: Danny Fonzarelli, Rick Law, Troy Tornado, Koshiro Ino, and Rocky Golden</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Danny Fonzarelli interviews Rick Law, who wants nothing to do with any questions about Joey Minnesota, but then wants even less to do with the alternate question about whether women really do love a man in uniform. He calls Fonz a joke, and says that for too many years, his own career was a joke. Those days are done, and they are never coming back.<br /></li><li>A video plays, recapping the recent history between Koshiro Ino & Troy Tornado, including Rocky Golden issuing a challenge for the International Championship, on his Japanese friend's behalf.</li></ul><p></p><p>

The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black) © vs. Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) w/Floyd Goldworthy</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Power versus speed, and sadism versus heart, this followed the dynamics of their PPV match, with one major exception. Floyd Goldworthy got involved, as he always does, but perhaps feeling a little desperation at no longer having the champion's advantage, he was caught in the act, and ejected from ringside. Now free of outside influences, Texas Buffalo still posed a massive challenge, but one that The Concept was up to the task of defeating.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, The Concept defeated Texas Buffalo in 9:31 when Greg Black defeated Texas Pete by pinfall with a Game Over. The Concept make defence number 1 of their TCW World Tag Team titles.</em></p><p>

Tuesday, Week 2, March 2013</p><p>

Mayor Street Arena (New England)</p><p>

Attendance: 13,479</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Pre-Show</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Sammy Bach and Joel Bryant defeated C-V-2 and Twin Gauge in 9:46; the order of elimination was Twin Gauge first, and then C-V-2.</em></p><p>

--------------------------------</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Live on GNN Total Sports</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Chance Fortune w/Giant Tana vs. Texas Pete w/Floyd Goldworthy & Texas Pete</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Chance Fortune knew that he'd have to hit-and-run, and he did to great effect, but in the end it wasn't enough to overcome Texas Pete, who was in an especially foul mood, now that he's no longer a Tag Team champion.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Texas Pete defeated Chance Fortune in 7:37 by pinfall with a Lone Star Drop.</em></p><p>

<strong>63</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The New Wave (Guide & Scout) vs. Genghis Rahn & Jacob Jett</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Genghis Rahn isn't known to play well with others, but for whatever reason, he and his high-flying partner seemed to find kindred spirits in one another, and it let them really push their established opponents to the limit. Unfortunately for them, they couldn't push OVER the limit, and once Guide was able to occupy Rahn on the floor, Scout took care of business on the young Jett.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, The New Wave defeated Genghis Rahn and Jacob Jett in 8:37 when Scout defeated Jacob Jett by submission with a Special Force.</em></p><p>

<strong>77</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Aaron Andrews & Danny Fonzarelli vs. The Canadian Animals (Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone) w/Laura Huggins & Vita</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>From one odd couple to another (although that's all Fonzarelli seems to be involved in), The Canadian Animals once again looked to exorcise the demons of their psychedelic foe. They isolated him for a while, but once Aaron Andrews caught the hot tag, it looked all over for the Animals, until Eddie Peak appeared seemingly out of nowhere, and laid out Andrews. Impeccable timing by Laura Huggins caused the referee to miss this, and Freddy Huggins recovered to finish the job with a Huggins Kiss.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a match that had some good action and average heat, The Canadian Animals defeated Danny Fonzarelli and Aaron Andrews in 9:31 when Freddy Huggins defeated Aaron Andrews by pinfall with a Huggins Kiss following interference from Eddie Peak.</em></p><p>

<strong>76</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>In-Ring/Video: Eddie Peak, Aaron Andrews, The Concept (Benny Benson & Greg Black), Texas Buffalo (Texas Pete & American Buffalo) w/Floyd Goldworthy, and The Machines (John Anderson & Brent Hill)</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Freddy Huggins & Edd Stone leapt into the ring to celebrate, but their ladies quickly got them out of there, as it was clear that Eddie Peak wasn't finished sending his message. He picked up the lifeless Andrews, and planted him with a fierce Peak of Perfection. Jason Azaria commented that it looks like the Hardcore Assassin has decided who is next on his hit list.<br /></li><li>A video plays, showing footage of the World Tag Team Championship match from the debut episode of Saturday Night Showcase. The Concept and The Machines will meet in a rematch of their dream match, this time with the titles on the line.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>77</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Benny Benson w/Greg Black vs. Brent Hill w/John Anderson</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>A rematch from 2 months ago, when Greg Black made his surprising debut to cancel out interference from John Anderson, this time, The Machines kept it one-on-one on their own, although that's not to say that they kept it clean. Brent Hill again proved to be masterfully adept at controlling the pace, and limiting Benny Benson's offensive opportunities, but Benson made the most of every opening he got, and chipped away at the armor of the veteran, until he was finally able to land the decisive blow.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and average heat, Benny Benson defeated Brent Hill in 12:28 by pinfall with a Shockwave From Next Year.</em></p><p>

<strong>80</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rocky Golden & Koshiro Ino vs. Bryan Vessey & Troy Tornado</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Vessey & Ino come from different ends of the puroresu spectrum, but they both come to fight, and fight they did, much to the delight of Troy Tornado. It was Tornado manipulating the situation to run Rocky Golden into a costly mistake, isolating him from his partner, though, that had the biggest impact on the match. Vessey & Tornado used their different approaches to great effect, but Golden eventually did make it to his partner, who lit up Tornado, until the latter tagged in Vessey. As in the beginning of the match, the two seasoned puroresu stars took it to each other, and Ino looked to get the better of Vessey, climbing the top rope for his signature flying shoulder tackle, but Troy Tornado tripped him up, leaving Ino open for a Super Vessey Plex, which got the three.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Bryan Vessey and Troy Tornado defeated Rocky Golden and Koshiro Ino in 12:47 when Bryan Vessey defeated Koshiro Ino by pinfall with a Super Vessey Plex.</em></p><p>

<strong>83</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>In-Ring/Backstage: Troy Tornado, Koshiro Ino, Bryan Vessey, Rocky Golden, Joshua Taylor w/Tracy Brendon, and Rick Law</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Troy Tornado slides into the ring to celebrate over his fallen challenger, but what really catches the eye is Bryan Vessey locking eyes with Rocky Golden. Seems the veteran has decided on a new dance partner.<br /></li><li>Backstage, Joshua Taylor is with his wife, Tracy Brendon, watching Vessey in the ring. He says that he knows he can beat Vessey, but Brendon informs him that she's found a different opponent for him, at the next PPV. Taylor asks who, and a voice from off camera answers "me." The camera zooms out to show Rick Law entering the frame. Law tells Taylor that his wife has just signed him up to do some hard time.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<strong>73</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Ricky Dale Johnson w/Joey Minnesota vs. Tommy Cornell</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>True to their words, both men come to the ring alone, as the two biggest titans in TCW renew a rivalry that has spanned an entire decade, and main evented several Total Mayhems. Like putting on an old pair of shoes, they slide right into this one, and put on another classic in their long line of great matches. The only noticeable difference is that Tommy Cornell refrained from breaking the rules, clearly intent on proving he doesn't need anything but his wrestling abilities to be the best. After many twists and turns, and the crowd in a frenzy, the two traded bombs, trying to land the decisive blow, but we'll never know who would have come out on top, because Wolf Hawkins & Jay Chord hit the ring, with both men down. Cornell was up first, and yelled at his Syndicate compatriots that he told them to stay out of this; he's going to do this on his own. Wolf Hawkins smiled at his mentor, said "you're not the boss any more," and spun Cornell around straight into a superkick from Jay Chord.</li></ul><p></p><p>

<em>In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Tommy Cornell defeated Ricky Dale Johnson in 18:53 when Ricky Dale Johnson was disqualified when Wolf Hawkins & Jay Chord ran in and attacked Tommy Cornell.</em></p><p>

<strong>87</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>In-Ring: Tommy Cornell, Wolf Hawkins, Jay Chord, Ricky Dale Johnson, and Joey Minnesota</strong></p><p>

</p><ul><li>Hawkins and Chord lay the boots to their apparently former partner, as Joey Minnesota hits the scene to ensure The Syndicate does not turn their attention to RDJ, as well. He tries to usher his partner out of the ring, but RDJ pauses, looks at his long-time rival getting mugged, and springs into action, sending Hawkins and Chord packing. The Freedom Fighters hold the ring, as Hawkins & Chord retreat, satisfied in the beating they've put on Tommy Cornell.</li></ul><p></p><p>
