SNP - The Thistle in the Ashes.

Recommended Posts



Karma Kollopy stands alone, leaning on the top rope of the SNP ring, in an empty Chaos Arena facing the camera. He is casually dressed in a baggy, navy, SNP hoodie, ¾ length camo style shorts and a pair of beat-up runners.


My name is Karma Kollopy and I am the Head Booker with Scottish National Promotions. When I took this position in January 2016 our first show drew a crowd of 266 people. Now, some two years, three months and two weeks later, on the eve of Hardcore War 2018, we prepare to go into our latest event off the back of our biggest crowd ever, 839, present at last month’s Blood Feud IV in The Chaos Arena that we have made our home this year.


It is my absolute pleasure to welcome you all to our new online presence, ‘Thistle Talk’. The growth of SNP in my time with the company is something that I take great pride in, something I see no reason will not continue apace for some time to come. The talent we have amassed here, both inside and outside the ring is a credit to everybody involved. From wrestlers to referees, from managers to road agents, from announcers to audience, everybody who has been involved in SNP has played their part in taking this organisation forward. We are still a young promotion but we have big dreams and I promise you that we will not be found wanting for effort or endeavour as we strive to make them come true.


So thank you for taking the time to support our product. Thank you for cheering and booing our stars. Thank you for getting behind them and us. Our fans are our family and together we are going to take this thing as far as we possibly can.

<p><strong>OOC</strong>: Thus begins ‘Thistle Talk’, SNP’s new webshow, introduced by Head Booker Karma Kollopy (AKA me!). I’m new to TEW and this is actually my first save. As is my wont in games like this, I try and inject as much realism as possible by starting my career at as low a level as possible, as locally as possible. SNP was a good fit then given their lowly status on Day 1 and their proximity to the Ireland that I call home. A few observations to carry forward.</p><p> </p><p>

1) First and foremost I will welcome any observations relating to the manner in which I structure this. I would prefer not to be corrected if anybody spots me making mistakes in terms of gameplay (I’d like to figure them out for myself and any consequences of my decisions should be allowed to impact the game as naturally as possible) but in terms of how I’m laying out this story itself – feel free to tell me what you like/love/loathe and I’ll take it on board. Adding pictures for example... any tips?</p><p> </p><p>

2) I want to create as immersive an experience as possible so right now I envisage previews/synopsis/reviews of shows interspersed by other pieces like profiles of the roster, a Q&A type of set up with Karma/me (if there’s enough interest from users here they can actually ask the questions but if not I’m sure I can fabricate a few relevant ones).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

3) What I won’t be sharing with the audience is a certain amount of behind the scenes stuff that fans wouldn’t necessarily be aware of. For example, if my relationship with the owner is on the brink, I won’t necessarily share that. If somebody is sacked I won’t necessarily explain why (I may allude, particularly if it’s asked in Q&A). The exception to this will be if it makes the in game news I will spill the beans (possibly through the medium of a yet-to-be-created SNP fan/blogger whose revelations I may post in between the ‘official’ SNP output.</p><p> </p><p>

4) I’m going to try and walk a fine line between being true to the SNP product (where Hardcore and Cult are the key features and Risque is heavy also and being respectful of the potential audience who may be reading here. I will keep the language PG-13 (you can just add your own profanity when reading). Some of the angles are borderline contentious for some people I’d imagine but I’m booking that way because owner Mark Carnie wants things booked that way (and my lack of devotion to the Hardcore part of my job brief means I need to try and keep him happy). </p><p> </p><p>

Just to give two examples, my lead stable (and one half of the feud that pretty much lifted us a level) are called ‘The Black Lions’. Riddick Jordan, Alton Vicious and Dwayne Dark are three African-English wrestlers who came together to prove their superiority to all things Scottish. There is a racial undertone to them that they make no attempt to hide. Their potency was watered down somewhat by the addition of Black Hole Son (AKA Carl Edwards) and Sharif but they remain right up at the top of my booking plans.</p><p> </p><p>

‘Carnie’s Angels’ are my other stable of note. They started when I moved Mark Carnie out from behind the announcer’s desk and made him the manager of openly gay Lenny Mochin and Notorious F.R.E.A.K. (who comes working a Drag Queen gimmick). Carnie himself adopted a gender-bender gimmick and they basically worked a sexually explicit angle in which they basically annoyed every homophobe who set eyes upon them. Over time they moved a little closer to the top end of the card, F.R.E.A.K. was cut lose and replaced by better workers and the overall package was shifted to a less specific ‘group of outsiders’ sort of vibe (Augustus Bumblescoop’s switch to a stoner gimmick has utterly reinvigorated his career).</p><p> </p><p>

In summary, I’ll tone things down somewhat for here but if you think that SNP would offend you in reality you might be as well to not pay too much attention to my slant on them!</p><p> </p><p>

5) I won’t commit to any particular amount of updates. This will obviously slow down the running of my game if I do it as well as I hope to but equally it could make the whole experience even more enjoyable for me (and hopefully for you too)!</p><p> </p><p>

6) There is no such thing as unwanted feedback!</p><p> </p><p>

Next up, hopefully in the next couple of days, there’ll be a fairly brief summary of last couple of years, a profile of current King of Scotland Hugh Echoes (FKA Hugh De Aske) and, all going well, a preview of the upcoming Hardcore War 2018.</p><p>

Thanks for reading, hopefully we’ll be seeing a lot more of each other!</p>

<p><strong>Hugh Echoes – Profile</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Hugh%20de%20Aske_zpsg8cy82yu.jpg</span></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The voice of Karma Kollopy announces the following over a video depicting the highlights of Hugh Echoes time in SNP.</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>The current King of Scotland first entered the SNP ring almost exactly one year ago at Hardcore War 2017. He dispatched the now departed Rhys Vali in short order and left the ring without a word. Still shrouded in mystery, Hugh Echoes has blazed a trail of success since then, albeit an extremely cryptic one. Echoes (who also competes in 4C and has toured with PGHW under the guise of Hugh de Aske) has remained on the outside of any of the alliances that have sprung up around the SNP though he did once team up with Meathead McAullie and Maximum Destruction in a rare losing effort against The Black Lions original trio of Jordan, Vicious and Dark.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Echoes has regularly dropped hints of a master plan but has yet to reveal anything in the way of detail to us. His vague allusions shed little in the way of real insight into what the talented all-rounders long-term goals are but it is clear that control is a key factor and he views his peers in the locker room like pieces on a chess board to be utilised as he sees fit. His matches against Riddick Jordan, Padraig O’Hearne and, in particular, Bret Heartbreak at Carnage III have been amongst the very best to ever be seen in SNP. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

He has lost only once in singles action (to the Riddick Jordan from whom he later won the title) and seems to have all the parts necessary to be a big name player for a very long time to come. We will have to wait and see if the mystery of his motives becomes any clearer in the future but one thing that we can be sure of is that he shows no sign of releasing his grip on the King of Scotland title!</em></p>

<p><strong>So here's what you've missed Part 1 - The King of Scotland title from March 2015 - April 2018</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Mark Carnie sits in a worn office chair behind his desk facing the camera, with a big SNP logo on the wall behind him. The SNP Owner and manager of the Carnie's Angels stable will narrate the following segment.</strong></p><p> </p><p>

When I put together Scottish National Promotions I did so in the knowledge that Scots are the toughest bastards alive. Our audience follows us because we give them the grittiest, the grimiest, the most gruesome wrestling show that you can see anywhere. In May of 2015 local boy Meathead McAullie became the first King of Scotland.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Meathead%20McAullie_zpsrxkjdtij.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Big Meathead was everything that we admire here in SNP. He can scrap, he can brawl, he will give you 110% every time he sets foot in the ring. For 10 months Meathead was the man and, to this day, he remains a force to be reckoned with and a dangerous contender for the King of Scotland title that he will always be the first to have worn! However in March of 2016 a new era dawned - the era of Roly Muckletruck!</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Roly%20Muckletruck_zpspkkxj6vf.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

When Roly Muckletruck won the title at Blood Feud II from his sometimes ally Meathead McAullie nobody was surprised. 'The Squashasaurus' was a sight to behold, his power and brutality marking a whole new level of ferocity and only adding to the prestige of our most significant title. For a full year Roly would be an unstoppable force of nature, turning back contenders such as Augustus Bumblescoop, Lenny Mochin, Alton Vicious, Maximum Destruction and Meathead McAullie. He teamed with the last two names on that list as "Scotland's Saviours" in a vicious feud against "The Black Lions", a battle that I think it's fair to say helped to put us on the map! I believed, as did everybody else, that Roly would be a key figure for us for years to come.</p><p> </p><p>

It was not to be. At Blood Feud III, in late March 2017, Riddick Jordan dethroned Roly Muckletruck. Within a month the big man had handed in his notice and was gone, returning only once for the 25 man Battle Royal at Carnage III two months ago. He came second when Riddick Jordan's outside interference saw Meathead McAullie prevail.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Riddick%20Jordan_zps0ttcjipk.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

The bad blood between Riddick Jordan and Roly Muckletruck came as no surprise given the manner in which their epic title bout ended. Jordan was the new champion certainly but the back injury that was inflicted meant that it would be July before he got to return to action and defend his title. SNP persevered with him though and we were rewarded by some stellar showings when he was back to fitness. Ex-champion Meathead McAullie tried to topple Jordan (twice). Maximum Destruction tried and failed to conquer. Hugh Echoes lost his first chance at King of Scotland glory. Unlike the others however, the mysterious Echoes was not to be denied and in November 2017 he defeated Jordan, leaving "The Dude" to pick up the pieces.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Hugh%20de%20Aske_zpsg8cy82yu.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Hugh Echoes then is the current (and fourth) King of Scotland. He has looked a cut above so far, turning back Riddick Jordan in a pair of brilliant rematches before 2017 ended and starting 2018 with just as much grace and purpose, picking up wins over Maximum Destruction, Bret Heartbreak, Padraig O'Hearne and Meathead McAullie already. </p><p> </p><p>

The King of Scotland is always a marked man and with competition growing ever more fierce here in SNP Echoes faces a difficult task in staying at the top of the pile. One thing is for sure, it will be chaotic, it was be unpredictable, it will be be crazy but it will never, ever be boring!</p>

<p><strong>So here's what you've missed Part 2 - The Tag Team Title from August 2015 - April 2018</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Jackie%20Goldstein_zpsxstdyr67.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jackie Goldstein sits in the SNP dressing rooms, deep in the bowels of The Chaos Arena. The company logo is painted on the walls behind him and he is casually dressed in an SNP t-shirt and a pair of jeans.</strong></p><p> </p><p>

My name is Jackie Goldstein and I am the Colour Commentator for SNP. Since I walked through the door here in October 2016 I've been impressed. SNP are a company on the up. SNP are a company that is going places, SNP is a company that is worthy of Jackie Goldstein! </p><p> </p><p>

Today I am here to talk to you all about our Tag Team Titles. It is a story that begins and end with the same pair of tough, uncompromising bruisers - "The Bad Man" Alton Vicious and "The Dude" Riddick Jordan - The Northern Lights.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Alton%20Vicious_zpshhz1lbr8.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Riddick%20Jordan_zps0ttcjipk.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Vicious and Jordan were champions for almost a full year from the introduction of the title in August 2015 right through to July of the following year. The Tribe, The Funke Bunch and Mochin & O'Hearne were amongst the duos who tried and failed to knock The Northern Lights off their perch. However all good things must come to an end and eventually it was lights out for the the reign of the first Tag Team champions. Perhaps they were distracted by the feud between The Black Lions and Scotland's Saviours that would dominate SNP for months but whatever the cause, at Heatwave Havoc 2016, The Funke Bunch won the titles.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Davey%20London_zps1hrar2nu.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Davey%20Celtic_zpsruyzmqkl.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

The Funke Bunch were an easy pair to underestimate. Constantly dancing and jumping and generally acting like a pair of dopes distracted most people just long enough to forget about their excellent pedigree. Prior to their time here in SNP they were twice Tag Team champions in 21C. They were worthy title holders here too, turning back the pairing of Augustus Bumblescoop & Cobra before falling to the Mark Carnie managed P.R.I.D.E. at Invasion 2 in the same month that I joined the company.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Lenny%20Mochin_zpsdym6hscd.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Notorious%20Freak_zpsirxnbpp3.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

P.R.I.D.E. were to prove disappointingly brief champions. The bizarre Notorious F.R.E.A.K. and Lenny Mochin failed to gel. They retained their titles despite a loss against The Funke Bunch the following month and had no answers a month later again when they came up against a team that was truly on the rise in the shape of Padraig O'Hearne and Matthew Macks.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Padraig%20OHearne_zpsj1a9kjrs.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Matthew%20Macks_zpstnycjywu.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

The Irish pair of O'Hearne and Macks, collectively known as Na Fianna (after the mythological ancient Irish warriors), were the real deal. O'Hearne's technical excellence and physical presence meshed perfectly with the smaller Mack's high-flying offence. </p><p> </p><p>

As 2016 moved into 2017 SNP had Tag Team champions to believe in. The Golden Sons and The Funke Bunch both failed to unseat them. Their matches with The Golden Sons were particularly keenly fought, the mutual respect between all four competitors never derailing the intensity of the combat! The stage was set then for a Triple Threat Tag match between Na Fianna, The Golden Sons and The Funke Bunch at Out Of It.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Davey%20London_zps1hrar2nu.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Davey%20Celtic_zpsruyzmqkl.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

So it was The Funke Bunch who became the first two time holders of the Tag Team titles. However once more they were to prove somewhat transitional champions. They beat The Golden Sons cleanly and suffered a dispiriting count out defeat to perennial losers The Tribe. However in September, at Fighting Irish 2017, Na Fianna ascended to the top of the mountain once more. For Padraig O'Hearne, who married his manager Kitty Katz in the middle of the ring earlier in the card, it was a hell of a day.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Padraig%20OHearne_zpsj1a9kjrs.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Matthew%20Macks_zpstnycjywu.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Na Fianna were impressive champions again, seeing off persistent rivals The Golden Sons and The Funke Bunch (the latter in a cage match) as 2017 drew to a close. At Carnage III in February of this year things turned full circle. The Northern Lights, despite the distractions of The Black Lions tussle with Canie's Angels and their burgeoning success in singles action, were champions once more.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Alton%20Vicious_zpshhz1lbr8.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Riddick%20Jordan_zps0ttcjipk.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Their second run has, so far, looked like it might be just as dominant as their first. They swept aside The Creepy Crawlies at Battle for St.Patrick's Day II and put The Funke Bunch through tables at last month's Blood Feud IV. The Tag Team titles have never been hotter folks. Add in teams like The Misfits and U.K. Panthers to the pairs we've already discussed and you see that this division is stocked full of high quality talent that will continue to dazzle and amaze as SNP moves forward towards lasting greatness. I'm "The Alchemist" Jackie Goldstein and thank you for watching!</p>

So here's what you've missed Part 3 - The Hardcore title from October 2015 - April 2018




Manny Morhan, dressed in the same shirt and suit that he wears while announcing, sits at a desk in the SNP production area. There's a number of monitors behind him showing highlights of various SNP shows. He leans back in his chair and addresses the camera.


Greetings ladies and gentlemen, I am Manny Morhan and I am the announcer with SNP. Whenever anybody asks me what truly makes SNP what it truly is I tell them, with absolutely zero hesitation, it's the Hardcore division. Our product is known as Scottish Hardcore for a reason and the reason is really simple. We do it well and we do it often. We hosted Wrestling's bloodiest tournament to crown our first champion and the man who first held the title over his head was Phil Myart.




Myart, always accompanied to the ring by his real-life girlfriend Joy, would lose the title at the first show of the Karma Kollopy era in January 2016. Norman Gates was the man who would emerge victorious at Burns Night Bash.




Gates run at the top would prove no more successful however and he lost the belt in his first defence. The event was Blood Feud II and the match was a Fatal Four Way bout that also featured Augustus Bumblescoop, Axl Grease and the man who would emerge victorious to celebrate a second reign as Hardcore champion. Phil Myart was the man once more.




Myart would prove a little more successful this time out, coming out on top in a Triple Threat Match against Axl Grease and JK Lee at Hardcore War almost exactly two years ago. His run came to a grinding halt at Heatwave Havoc that July though when he came up against a monster in Maximum Destruction.




Maximum Destruction was originally slated to be a staple in the Tag Team title hunt but when his partner Maximum Carnage decamped to 21C his focus shifted. He was a perennial contender for the King of Scotland title and a major part of Scotland's Saviours in their war against The Black Lions. And it was from The Black Lions that his conqueror would emerge at the following month's Festival of Violence II.




Dwayne Dark, more than anybody else, was elevated by the Scotland's Saviours/Black Lions feud. His progress was emphasised, not only by his victory over Maximum Destruction, but by his reign that followed. He was arguably the man who attached real prestige to the Hardcore title.


Once the big feud died down Dark swatted aside Axl Grease at Christmas Chaos 2016. He started 2017 with a bang too running through Milo Morningstar, besting Phil Myart in a Weapons match at Blood Feud III and beating Grease again in an I Quit match at that year's Out Of It. His championship reign lasted over 10 months before he was finally defeated at Heatwave Havoc in July 2017 by Cobra.




Cobra was an interesting case. He had turned heads with a series of excellent performances since his arrival in April of 2016. He didn't appear totally comfortable in the Hardcore arena however and while his undoubted talent was enough for him to take the title from Dwayne Dark his time as champion was to prove much, much shorter. At Festival of Violence III the title was won by a long-time contender and significant underdog - Axl Grease.




Grease was a surprise champion. Managed by Kourtney, he had struggled for momentum throughout his SNP run and it came as little surprise when his title run ran aground at the first hurdle. Dwayne Dark was back on top.




While Dark's second spell as Hardcore champion wouldn't quite hit the heights of the first it would be wrong to paint it as a failure. His first defence came in Northern England at the Invasion 3 event as he saw off the challenge of both the deposed Axl Grease and the up and coming Colin Picalo. Yet a month later in a one on one match with Picalo the title would change hands again.




Colin Picalo entered the SNP in January of 2017. The under-sized putz was dismissed by many early on, even after he was recruited into Carnie's Angels. His victory over Dark helped put him on the map and was a key moment in the early days of the Carnie's Angels/Black Lions struggle. To prove it was no fluke Picalo would defeat Dwayne Dark again just last month at Blood Feud IV. The Hardcore division remains a key title here in SNP and with plenty of up and coming talent Colin Picalo will have it all to do if he's to keep the gold around his waist. Only time will tell what the future holds, starting with Hardcore War 2018. It's gonna be a hell of a ride, hold onto your ticket and strap yourself in!

<p><strong>So here's what you missed Part 4 - The Dragon Lightweight title from May 2016 - April 2018</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Karma%20Kollopy%20First_zpsrldds0to.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Karma Kollopy is back in the SNP ring, sitting on the top turnbuckle. Behind him, on the walls of The Chaos Arena, hangs a huge banner advertising the upcoming Hardcore War event. He addresses the camera.</strong></p><p> </p><p>

When I got here in the first days of 2016 I fell in love with SNP. I fell in love with the profanity and the passion and the noise and the raw, unfiltered emotion. SNP gave me an opportunity to leave a mark on this wonderful industry of ours. I came here with ideas to make this place better than when I arrived. One of the first of those was the Dragon Lightweight title. With all the talented lightweights on our roster it was a decision that made so much sense that I hardly feel I deserve credit for it.</p><p> </p><p>

At Out Of It 2016 six men took part in a Scramble match to crown our inaugural champion. Bali Daljit, Jaunty Rhodes, Augustus Bumblescoop, Neville Jones and Phil Bridges all took part but the man who came out on top... was Martin Heath.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Martin%20Heath_zpsnwdz7ild.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Heath, a former Tag Team champion in ROF, was one of the first men I signed when I arrived. Like so many of his peers, his ring style makes for compelling viewing and he was a worthy first holder of the title. He retained his belt in matches against Daljit and Bumblescoop before coming a cropper against his own Tag Team partner.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Cain%20Carlile_zpstglx0whk.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Fighting Irish was the event, September 2016 the time. At the end of a hard-fought ladder match, Cain Carlile was the second man to wear the Dragon Lightweight title around his waist. For the young Carlile, 2016 was a banner year and he would defend the title successfully a couple of times himself, against Bali Daljit and Neville Jones respectively. Come the first show of 2017 though, Jones would take both his revenge and the gold.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Neville%20Jones_zpscprg3ctu.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

"The Prince of Wales" improved as 2016 went on but it was still an impressive showing from him to win the title. He had to overcome both of The Golden Sons in the shape of then champion Cain Carlile and also his predecessor and partner Martin Heath in a Triple Threat match.</p><p> </p><p>

March saw another Triple Threat Ladder match for the title and Jones scored another impressive victory over Martin Heath again and regular contender Bali Daljit. From a sometimes shaky and inconsistent start to his SNP career, Neville Jones had arrived. Another victory, over Daljit again, came one full year ago, at 2017's Hardcore War.</p><p> </p><p>

The following month, the title changed again.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Rohan%20Kirchner_zpswdtdpytg.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

It was ANOTHER Triple Threat Ladder match, Bali Daljit lost out AGAIN but we had a new hand raised in victory at the end this time. Rohan Kircher, SNP's South African Sensation, had finally come of age. Kirchner was well known for his lengthy time in 'The Tribe', a Tag Team with Rhys Vali. Since they arrived in SNP however, Kirchner had outgrown his long-time partner and this was proven beyond any doubt by his victory here.</p><p> </p><p>

The same trio would collide again in another stellar ladder match at Heatwave Havoc in July with Kirchner repeating the trick and retaining the title. Just a few short weeks later, at one of our shows in Ireland, Shannonslam, we had a Fatal Four Way Ladder match though and this time Kirchner's luck would run out. Former champions Martin Heath and Neville Jones made up the numbers but it was Matthew Macks, on home soil, who climbed to the top and unhooked the title belt.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Matthew%20Macks_zpstnycjywu.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Macks, well known as one half of Tag Team Na Fianna, was an exciting competitor who fit in well in the division. In his first defence he defeated Martin Heath in an excellent bout and he found himself holding the Tag Team title simultaneously shortly after that, making him the first man in SNP to hold two titles at once. He would hold the Dragon Lightweight belt until November when he lost in a Triple Threat match to Neville Jones (Martin Heath was the third).</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Neville%20Jones_zpscprg3ctu.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Jones then became the first person to hold the title twice. His first defence came at the last show of 2017, Christmas Chaos, and he provided another reminder of his undoubted quality, coming out on top in a Fatal Five Way ladder match. Former champions Rohan Kirchner, Martin Heath, Cain Carlile were all left in his wake along with Augustus Bumblescoop.</p><p> </p><p>

2018 started just as well for Jones with another victory in another excellent ladder match against Rohan Kircher. However last month, at Blood Feud IV, we saw another new name etched into the annals.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Augustus%20Bumblescoop_zpsqocofo9b.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

It was another of the multi-man ladder matches that are a staple of this division (as I'm sure you're starting to realise)! Augustus Bumblescoop was the wrestler to emerge victorious, seeing off the challenges of Neville Jones, Rohan Kirchner and Bali Daljit. For Bumblescoop, it was the culmination of a huge turn around in fortunes. It wasn't all that long since he had been treading water in a comedy role with Khloe as his manager. He embraced his inner stoner, threw in his lot with Mark Carnie's 'Carnie's Angels' and now, after so many near misses, he finally had title gold wrapped around his waist.</p><p> </p><p>

I'm not going to lie to you guys, the Dragon Lightweight title is close to my heart. I believe, in my heart of hearts, that it emphasises the very best up and coming talent that we have on offer here today in SNP and I expect it to be close to the forefront of everything we do for a very long time to come. If it wasn't for this banged up knee that I need to carry me around it's where you'd my in action myself. I look forward to having you all with us as we take our next steps forward, starting with Hardcore War. We'll see you there!</p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">SNP HARDCORE WAR 2018 - a preview</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

With Hardcore War 2018 just around the corner, now is probably a good time to look down along the card in anticipation of what lies ahead of us. As always with SNP, there will be action and lots of it, twists and turns aplenty and the most intense, dramatic, quality in-ring action that you will see anywhere on this side of the Atlantic!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>1 - Axl Grease, Rohan Kirchner & Jimmi Addams (w/Kourtney) Vs. Alessandro Caesar, Phil Bridge & The Pulveriser (w/Khloe)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Axl%20Grease_zpswjvg2ucp.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Rohan%20Kirchner_zpswdtdpytg.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Jimmi%20Addams_zpsnk8qnwtp.jpg</span> w/<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Kourtney_zps1ux92wfp.jpg</span><p>


<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Alessandro%20Giordano_zpsveieixus.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Leighton%20Buzzard_zpsd0xiiqbc.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Jeremy%20Allen_zpskhlryiir.jpg</span> w/<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Khloe_zpse3ulqitj.jpg</span></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

This one has been slowly coming to the boil for a while now. Kourtney, the self-proclaimed "Groupie Queen of SNP" and Khloe have been butting heads for some time. Kourtney calls her clients "The Koven" and has long been recognised as somebody with designs upon playing the power game to her own benefit here in SNP. "Khloe's Kastoffs" were initially formed as a weapon Khloe could use to get revenge when Augustus Bumblescoop cast her aside. This rivalry has the potential to get very bitter and personal indeed. With the ambitious Kourtney facing off against "The Fan's Own Favourite", this is a real clash of opposites and not just when we look at the women at the head of this battle. Kourtney's trio boast plenty of experience and all three men have worn gold around their waists, either here or elsewhere. The men who call Khloe manager, on the other hand, are much younger and have considerably less mileage under their belts. They will not be found lacking in enthusiasm though and this should be a great match to kick off the show.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong> 2 - Augustus Bumblescoop Vs. Neville Jones </strong><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">(SNP Dragon Lightweight Title)</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Augustus%20Bumblescoop_zpsqocofo9b.jpg</span> /w<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Neville%20Jones_zpscprg3ctu.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Augustus Bumblescoop will make his first defence of the Dragon Lightweight title. Bumblescoop has been one of the success stories of the last year or so. He appeared to be treading water somewhat when alligned with Khloe. He may have caused some fans to lose respect for him when he callously dropped her to jump ship to "Carnie's Angels" but there's no arguing with the results. His recent good form all came together last month to win his first title here in SNP. His first challenge now will be to emerge victorious against the man he took the title from, the man who perhaps represents the Dragon division more than anybody, "The Prince of Wales" Neville Jones. History will be the driving force for Jones as he knows that should he walk away with the gold he will become the first man in SNP history to hold the same title three times!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>3 -The Golden Sons Vs. The Funke Bunch</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Cain%20Carlile_zpstglx0whk.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Martin%20Heath_zpsnwdz7ild.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Davey%20London_zps1hrar2nu.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Davey%20Celtic_zpsruyzmqkl.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

This Tag Team encounter between two teams who like to work at pace and at risk should see unmissable action. The Funke Bunch of course have been at the top of the heap a couple of times already and will view this match as a good opportunity to start building momentum for another tilt at the title. For their part, Carlile and Heath are coming into this one of the back of an impressive victory over Na Fianna last month and they will also see this match as a potential stepping stone on the way to achieving their long time goal of becoming SNP Tag Team Champions.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>4 - Meathead McAullie Vs. Notorious F.R.E.A.K.</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Meathead%20McAullie_zpsrxkjdtij.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Notorious%20Freak_zpsirxnbpp3.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Two men at very different crossroads will go head to head in this bout. Meathead remains in and around the King of Scotland title picture but there is a sense that he has been marginalised ever so slightly and that he has lost his way somewhat. On the other side Notorious F.R.E.A.K. discovered first hand last month just how untrustworthy Mark Carnie can be. His was forcefully expelled from the stable by way of a beating from his one time colleagues. For a man who entered the SNP to a degree of hype and early success it's time for him to go back to basics and figure out his next move.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>5 - Cobra Vs. Lenny Mochin</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Cobra_zpszpas1mrc.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Lenny%20Mochin_zpsdym6hscd.jpg</span> /w<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Another bout with very interesting implications for both men. Both Cobra and Mochin have moved up through the card comfortably enough but both of them have gotten somewhat mired in the upper mid-card. This then represents an excellent opportunity for them both to put down a fesh marker. They've met plenty of times before and their head-to-head record in currently tied at 2-2 so expect another tight, technically driven encounter between these two rising talents.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>6 -Maximum Destruction Vs. Konrad Makinen</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Maximum%20Destruction_zpsrewe7aif.jpg</span> w/<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Laurel%20Wreath_zps50vhpjqk.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Konrad%20Maumlkinen_zpswvm8melp.jpg</span> w/<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

A rematch from last month's Blood Feud IV will see Maximum Destruction going toe-to-toe once more with "The Prodigy" Konrad Makinen. The Swede is making huge strides very quickly indeed, much to the delight of Mark Carnie. Maximum Destruction is adamant that last month's match, which ended in a victory for Makinen, was a fluke result and he intends to put things to right this time out.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>7 - Northern Stars Vs. Na Fianna </strong><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">(SNP Tag Team Title)</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Alton%20Vicious_zpshhz1lbr8.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Riddick%20Jordan_zps0ttcjipk.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><p>

<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Padraig%20OHearne_zpsj1a9kjrs.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Matthew%20Macks_zpstnycjywu.jpg</span> w/<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Kitty%20Katz_zpsbcbejke8.jpg</span></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Another big-time title match between arguably the two top pairings in our young history here in SNP. Riddick and Vicious, the Northern Stars, are starting to look comfortable again, moving up through the gears and echoing their titanic first run as Tag Team champions. Na Fianna, in Macks and O'Hearne, are no strangers to Tag Team excellence themselves. They, like Jones in the Dragon Lightweight bout and Dark in the Hardcore title match, will be motivated by the opportunity to become champions for a third time. It could be an absolute classic, all four of these guys can really get it done and each has a record of turning out quality. It's clash of styles for sure, with the powerful brawlers that are the champions going up against the technique of O'Hearne and the high-flying, dangerous offence of Macks, but one that could be an absolute show stealer!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>8 - Colin Picalo Vs. Dwayne Dark </strong><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">(SNP Hardcore Title)</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Colin%20Picalo_zpsw29aqjfx.jpg</span> /w<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Dwayne%20Dark_zps0k4rpijc.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

"Carnie's Angels" and "The Black Lions" will go head in this one as young Colin Picalo puts his Hardcore title on the line against Dwayne Dark, the man he won the title from last November and has already defended successfully against. These two look like they could dominate the division for some time to come yet and their own personal rivalry gets ever more poisonous with each passing battle. It's a given that this match will have some stipulation attached, all that remains to be seen is how much blood will be spilled and who will have their hand raised when it's all said and done.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>9 - Hugh Echoes Vs. Bret Heartbreak </strong><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">(SNP King of Scotland)</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Hugh%20de%20Aske_zpsg8cy82yu.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Bret%20Heartbreak_zps3aqc6jjw.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

The last time this pair met, at Carnage III in February, they put on the best match in the history of SNP. We'll have to wait and see if they can replicate or even better that. In any event this match will be a Main Event worth waiting for, the collision between the mysterious, enigmatic champion and the precocious teenager still developing into a real talent. Expect Echoes and Heartbreak to put on a match worthy of closing any show, anywhere as SNP marks what will surely be another sterling night in the success story we're crafting here!</p>

<strong>Blackheart Vs. Sharif</strong></p><p>

<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Blackheart_zpsf7gwvwwu.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Sharif_zpsuvoahcin.jpg</span></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Hardcore War 2018 kicked off with this pre show bout between two teenagers. The bout was fought under hardcore rules and descended into a wild brawl from the outset. The match was, to be fair, a disappointment. It seemed to drag in the middle and flowed poorly. The crowd, as ever, were vocal in their distaste for Sharif. "The Pimp Prince", the junior member of The Black Lions, has yet to really catch fire here in SNP. Today, tiring visibly after just 7'54, he was defeated again, this brutal (if sloppy) contest coming to an end when the 16 year old Blackheart caught him with a spinning DDT. For now it seems likely that both these guys will have to be content to develop primarily on pre shows.</p><p>

<strong>Match Rating: F+</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>Bali Dalji Vs. Black Hole Son</strong></p><p>

<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Bali%20Daljit_zpshopo5fxt.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Carl%20Edwards_zpseg1bbw7c.jpg</span></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

The second match on the pre show was a different sort of battle with two guys struggling for traction in the hunt for Dragon Lightweight glory looking to put down a marker. It was an open, even match with both competitors using high-risk offence throughout. The egomaniac Daljit has been a perennial contender but he was disappointed at the end here. Black Hole Son nailed him with The Merseyslide at 9'18 to pick up the win that he will hope is the start of him moving up the card in a manner befitting a Black Lion.</p><p>

This match, which was originally slated to open the show proper, was bumped to the preshow because of time constraints. This can hardly have pleased any of those involved, particularly Kourtney whose plans to reach the top of the pile can hardly have factored in appearances on pre-shows. The match itself was aggressive throughout. Both managers were vocal at ringside. The early exchanges between Jimmi Addams and Phil Bridge were crisp and evenly matched before The Pulveriser came into the ring and his power came into play. He worked Addams over before coming up against Rohan Kirchner. The South African was just too fast for his young opponent and their cagey exchanges saw no major strikes landed by either early on. This changed out of absolutely nowhere when Kirchner threw an enziguri. He caught The Pulveriser at precisely the moment that the big man was wrapping his arms around his body and starting a powerbomb. Both men were laid out and crawled to their respectively corners. Simultaneous tags saw the introduction of Axl Grease and Augustus Caesar. </p><p> </p><p>

This is where the momentum shifted fatally. Grease, the former Hardcore champion threw lefts and rights. The young Italian simply shrugged them off and proceeded to batter Grease with a variety of slams, clotheslines and suplexes. The whole of Khloe's team took it in turns to unload upon the unfortunate Grease. Phil Bridge left him reeling with a Buzz Off, The Pulveriser almost cut his body in two with his patented Blade Slam and it's fair to say that Grease was only barely clinging to consciousness by the time Caesar got his hands on him again, laying him out with a jarring Roman Holiday, hooking his leg and scoring the pinfall at 9'55.</p><p>

Khloe's Kastoff's took in the deserved cheers of the audience as they made their way to the back. Khloe has become a hugely popular figure with the SNP Army who were delighted to see Kourtney humilated. Chants of "Kourtney swallows," resound around the arena. She fumes while her trio of clients stumble and stagger around the ringside area in various states of physical distress. Axl Grease is starting to come to, painfully dragging himself back to his feet with the aid of the ring ropes. Kourtney rolls into the ring and strides towards her lover. He reaches out an imploring hand. She kicks him square between the legs and he collapses again.</p><p> </p><p>

"This is your fault Axl, all your fault!" she shrieks, kicking him again while he curls into a ball. Jimmi Addams is in the ring quickly dropping to his knees besides the prone Grease unloading with stiff blows to the head and shoulders. Rohan Kirchner looks briefly taken aback by this turn of events before giving a wry smile and sliding into the ring with a steel chair. He whacks the unfortunate Grease with it once before tossing it to the canvas, mounting the top turnbuckle and gesturing to his colleagues. Kourtney and Jimmi Addams take a leg each and drag Grease over the chair. Kirchner hits him with a textbook 450 splash. All three kick Grease again, Kourtney straddles him and slaps him in the face a couple more times before she leaves with Addams and Kirchner by her side. Grease is left beaten, abandoned and broken in the centre of the ring.</p><p>

<strong>OOC:</strong> Sorry for the delay with this. I was working on the main show last night but it's taking longer than I expected. Primarily this is because I'm writing more than I expected (so, ya know, theoretically, it could be worth the wait). The good news is that I'm off work tomorrow so will have no excuse not to finish it then. <img alt=":)" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/smile.png.142cfa0a1cd2925c0463c1d00f499df2.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" />

<strong>Your announce team for tonight's show: Manny "The Man" Morhan, "The Alchemist" Jackie Goldstein and Karma Kollopy</strong></p><p>

<strong>Manny Morhan:</strong> Hello ladies and gentlemen and welcome... to... Hardcore War 2018. The atmosphere is electric here in The Chaos Arena and we have a night full of drama, intrigue and top class wrestling ahead of us. My name is Manny Morhan and I have one piece of advice for you all - folks it's gonna be a hell of a ride, hold onto your ticket and strap yourself in!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jackie Goldstein:</strong> "The Alchemist" Jackie Goldstein here and I can echo what Manny has said, I am excited by what we have ahead of us. Eight matches between some of the most talented wrestlers you will see anywhere. You like hardcore? Then Colin Picalo and Dwayne Dark for the SNP Hardcore title is what you have been dreaming about! Tag-team your thing? We've got another title match between the two most successful teams in the history of this promotion - The Northern Lights against Na Fianna as well as a match between a quartet of high energy entertainers as The Golden Sons meet The Funke Bunch.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Karma Kollopy:</strong> And nobody can stop talking about tonight's match for the SNP King of Scotland title, the enigmatic Hugh Echoes going against Bret Heartbreak. Their last meeting, at Carnage III, was the best we've ever seen in an SNP ring and there is no reason to believe these guys can't do it again! And we've got plenty more, "The Prodigy" Konrad Makinen will be aiming to beat Maximum Destruction again in a rematch from Blood Feud IV, Cobra and Lenny Mochin are going head to head and our first match of the evening is going to be for the SNP Dragon Lightweight title with Augustus Bumblescoop defending against "The Prince of Wales" Neville Jones.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Before the bell rings though, this is SNP and that means the show is only going to start one way...</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Laurel%20Wreath_zps50vhpjqk.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Laurel Wreath makes her way to the ring with a sultry strut as the crowd roar their approval. She makes her way around the ring, one side at a time, leaning suggestively over the ropes as she fires a number of SNP t-shirts into the crowd. She bends and twists herself around the ropes as the crowd gets hotter with each passing minute. "Thank you Laurel" chants ring out as she makes her way to the back.</p><p>

<strong>Angle rating: D+</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Augustus Bumblescoop © w/Mark Carnie Vs. Neville Jones </strong><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">(SNP Dragon Lightweight Title)</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Augustus%20Bumblescoop_zpsqocofo9b.jpg</span> /w<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Neville%20Jones_zpscprg3ctu.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#000080;">Champion Bumblescoop and challenger Jones circle each other warily for a few seconds but it doesn't take long for this one to pick up the pace. A dizzying array of holds and counterholds, flips and rolls fail to give either man a clear advantage and Bumblescoop rolls to the outside to consult with his manager, SNP owner Mark Carnie. Their head-to-head is interrupted when Jones dives out over the top rope into them both. He hefts Bumblescoop back into the ring and scores a near two count. His momentum is halted when Mark Carnie tries to grab his leg as he runs the ropes. Distracted, he turns around right into a killer dropkick from Bumblescoop who turns the screw with a succession of arm drags and short arm clotheslines, a running flying knee and a Boston Crab that is broken only when Jones desperately grabs the bottom rope. </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

Bumblescoop argues with the referee while Jones tries to suck in some air in the corner. Bumblescoop turns his attention back to Jones and charges at him, aiming to finish him off with the Bumble Blast. Just before impact, Neville Jones moves though and the crowd "ooohs" in appreciation as Bumblesoop almost knocks himself out as he runs face first into the turnbuckle. Jones takes control again, working Bumblescoop over with hard kicks and a beautiful flying elbow that leaves the champion prone in the middle of the ring. When Jones climbs up top it looks like he is only moments away from becoming Dragon Lightweight champion for the third time. Mark Carnie climbs to the apron and begins shouting, gesticulating and generally making a scene. Referee Lucy Avatar demands he get down but he threatens her too. Neville Jones shifts his feet quickly and takes flight, catching Carnie with a flying dropkick from the top turnbuckle. Carnie goes flying to the floor. Jones bounces back to this feet and allows himself to admire his handiwork where Carnie writhes in pain. </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

Jones turns back towards his opponent only to walk into a DDT from the recovered champion. Bumblescoop plants him into the canvas, drags him back to his feet, whips him into the corner again. This time the Bumble Blast hits and three seconds later, after 7'35, Augustus Bumblescoop has his hand raised in victory, retaining his Dragon Lightweight gold as the crowd buzz in delight. "Ain't nobody higher than A.B.!" he whoops delightedly.</span></p><p>

<strong>Match Rating: D-</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Manny Morhan:</strong> A not so subtle reference there from the champ to his eh... hobbies.</p><p>

<strong>Jackie Goldstein:</strong> And he is not talking about hot air ballooning Manny!</p><p>

<strong>Karma Kollopy:</strong> To be fair to the guy, after retaining the belt, he's due an evening of relaxation I guess!"</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Golden Sons Vs. The Funke Bunch</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Cain%20Carlile_zpstglx0whk.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Martin%20Heath_zpsnwdz7ild.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Davey%20London_zps1hrar2nu.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Davey%20Celtic_zpsruyzmqkl.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#000080;">There are high spots galore in this one. Martin Heath and Flash Funke get us underway and almost immediately we find ourselves caught up in a whirlwind of quick tags and fast-paced, high-risk moves. The momentum shifts back and forth as the pace gets faster and faster. Heath nearly decapitates Flash Funke with a vicious spinning heel kick, the Funkes leave a mark on Cain Carlile with a double flying elbow smash.</span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

It's young Carlile who has the last laugh though as Captain Crash pins Finn Funke after his gravity-defying "Supernova Splash" ends this one at 7'08. Martin Heath was arguably the top performer in the contest but none of the four will look back with any shame on their showing tonight.</span></p><p>

<strong>Match rating: D-</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Manny Morhan:</strong> Another victory for the Golden Sons. It's taken a while for Carlile and Heath to get back to form but they are building momentum now.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jackie Goldstein:</strong> No doubt about that! These guys are really starting to click now and I think it's only a matter of time before they get a crack at the Tag Team titles again. Then we'll really see how far they've come!</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Notorious%20Freak_zpsirxnbpp3.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p>

Notorious F.R.E.A.K. is standing in a doorway discussing his options for new management after he was violently removed from Carnie's Angels. He has his back to the camera and is clearly quite animated as he shares his thoughts,</p><p> </p><p>

"What are ze options eh? Of course, zere ees Khloeeeee. Like her I have been cast aside so that could be something for me to consider, oui? And of course, ze lovely Irish lass, Keety Katz. A tricolour of different shades eh? In more ways than one!"</p><p> </p><p>

F.R.E.A.K. laughs uproariously at his own joke before continuing,</p><p> </p><p>

"Of course zere are other choices for me to conzider. Eet looks like zere ees a vacancy in the Koven <strong>(OOC: See pre-show)</strong> and I think that Kourtney and I may share the same appetites. I also like the swallows,"</p><p> </p><p>

he pauses and ponders,</p><p> </p><p>

"Such beautiful birds. And speaking of beautiful birds, zere is Laurel Wreath to conzider. To be alligned with her would allow me to be also a member of a stable with big Meester Maximum Destruction. Such a fine fellow... perhaps Marbella would like to come back to ze SNP. Or perhaps I should audition to become one of Carnie's Angels once more, it has been a month or so after all, what do you think eh?"</p><p> </p><p>

F.R.E.A.K. nods and seems to be listening intently to somebody in the dressing room. Out of nowhere his entrance music starts to play and he looks up in bewilderment, turns a full circle and dashes frantically towards the ring. The camera swiftly moves forward to look into the doorway and see who F.R.E.A.K. was talking to. Two things are immediately evident:</p><p> </p><p>

1) It is the doorway to a broom closet and not, as we assumed, a dressing room.</p><p>

2) It is completely empty. There is nobody else there.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Meathead McAullie Vs. Notorious F.R.E.A.K. (Last Man Standing Match)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Meathead%20McAullie_zpsrxkjdtij.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Notorious%20Freak_zpsirxnbpp3.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#000080;">Meathead McAullie is all business tonight. He strides to the ring and immediately starts to unload upon his smaller opponent. F.R.E.A.K. seemed confused ever before he got to the ring and the brutal beatdown administered here by Meathead McAullie, SNP's MVP (Most Violent Person), didn't make him any more lucid. Meathead manhandles him throughout, keeping it simple, an endless parade of clubbing blows, vicious knees, headbutts and brutal clothelines. F.R.E.A.K. has already narrowly beaten the count twice when he's thrown against the ropes and walks into a running big boot. His head snaps back and he is completely out cold before he hits the mat. Meathead McAullie stands there, staring at his prone foe as Lucy Avatar begins her count. As she reaches 8, he turns to leave and is already making his way back up the aisle by the time she calls for the bell and declares him victor by way of knockout.</span></p><p>

<strong>Match Rating: E</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Manny Morhan:</strong> No emotion being shown by Meathead McAullie but he has gotten the job done here in impressive fashion.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Karma Kollopy:</strong> Absolutely Manny, he got it done right there. He's keeping it under his chest but you know he has got to be pleased with that. It's gets him back on track and the first King of Scotland will start looking towards the top title again now.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Cobra Vs. Lenny Mochin</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Cobra_zpszpas1mrc.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Lenny%20Mochin_zpsdym6hscd.jpg</span> /w<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#000080;">The crowd were lifted by this one from the moment the bell rang. Even Cobra's ring entrance has gotten pulses raising, the rangy American strutting to the ring armed only with a sneer and Avarice, his pet snake. Mark Carnie is uncharacteristically subdued as he makes sure to stay in his own corner. Lucy Avatar casts frequent glances to the basket where the snake has been placed. Cobra's opponent for this evening though is unbowed. Lenny Mochin is a professional and once the bell rings he attacks, utilising his arsenal of precise, technical holds to bring Cobra to the ground. Mochin offers no respite but Cobra is nothing if not resilient. He blocks, and then reverses, an attempted suplex and quickly slithers over Mochin to apply a figure-four leg lock that has Mochin right on the edge of tapping out.</span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

Sensing the match was getting away from his client Mark Carnie hopped up on the apron (still keeping one eye on the wicker basket in the far corner) to create a distraction. Cobra smoothly rolls away from Mochin and towards the basket. Carnie drops back to the floor in a hurry while Lucy Avatar tries to keep Cobra away from Avarice (she is in no hurry to touch the basket herself though). Carnie is still shouting, Avatar is still trying to restore calm and Cobra is still leering and trying to slide around the referee to unleash his snake upon proceedings. Mochin however, opportunist that he is, has other ideas stepping up behind Cobra and hitting him with a superb belly-to-back hooked leg suplex. The resulting 2 count doesn't slow Mochin down. For the next couple of minutes he gives a clinic in how to shut down your opponent alternating between high impact moves (including a DDT, a neckbreaker and another belly-to-back-suplex) and wear down holds (a sleeper hold and an abdominal stretch amongst them). </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

When the end comes, it comes quickly. Mochin throwing Cobra against the ropes at speed and setting himself up for a back drop. Cobra is still fighting though and manages to pull off a sunset flip. With the aid of a handful of Mochin's tights, Cobra scores the 3-count at 10'25. Lenny Mochin is understandably furious at this but any plans he had to take any form of revenge are curtailed when Cobra takes Avarice out of the basket and raises the snake above his head. Carnie moves with a speed that would impress Cain Carlile, back in the dressing-room area almost before anybody realises it. Lucy Avatar quickly retreats to the safety of the announcers' table leaving Mochin and Cobra in a stare down. Mochin holds his ground but when Cobra points the snake towards him even Lenny Mochin decides that discretion is the better part of valour. He flips back out over the rope and walks to the back of The Chaos Arena, never taking his eyes from Cobra (or Avarice).</span></p><p>

<strong>Match rating: E+</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Manny Morhan:</strong> What a match. Both these guys have got so much ability and so much to offer here in SNP.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jackie Goldstein:</strong> You are telling it like it is Manny-Man! But today it is Cobra who takes the victory, taking a 3-2 lead in the head-to-head bouts between these guys.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Karma Kollopy:</strong> I've gotta say, I have a feeling it will NOT be the last time these guys go one-on-one either. It started off as a fairly low-key, almost friendly, rivalry but it is getting more and more intense every time these two lock up!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Maximum Destruction w/Laurel Wreath Vs. Konrad Makinen w/Mark Carnie</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Maximum%20Destruction_zpsrewe7aif.jpg</span> w/<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Laurel%20Wreath_zps50vhpjqk.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Konrad%20Maumlkinen_zpswvm8melp.jpg</span> w/<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#000080;">Maximum Destruction was fuming about his loss to Makinen at last month's event. The big man isn't used to defeat in any case but the dismissive attitude of the Swede in the aftermath only served to agitate the notoriously quick-to-anger Max D. It is obvious even before the bell rings that Laurel Wreath has her work cut out for her as she tries to calm him down and keep him focused as paces back and forth like a caged animal glowering across the ring at Konrad Makinen. Makinen, for his part, looks wholly unperturbed as he grins arrogantly back across at his big opponent, nodding as he listens to Mark Carnie's last instructions. The bell rings and we're into another bout.</span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

Max D charges straight at Makinen, who backs away to the safety of the ropes. Lucy Avatar has the difficult task of backing Destruction up. Makinen comes up but retreats to the ropes sanctuary again in short order. Again Lucy Avatar struggles to create separation between the two. This time Makinen rolls out of the ring for a consultation with his manager Mark Carnie. Avatar starts to count. Makinen waits until she reaches 7 before making his way back in. Destruction closes quickly again and this time Makinen can't reach the ropes quickly enough. A series of clubbing blows bring Makinen, "The Prodigy", to his knees. Max D kicks him full in the throat and goes for a cover. Makinen kicks out. He absorbs tremendous punishment, left sprawling out on the canvas after a huge uppercut, whipped hard into the corner and hammered with a running elbow, left writhing after a massive power slam. Destruction attempts covers again and again and again. Makinen kicks out every time.</span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

A huge choke slam sees another Makinen kick out at 2. A gut wrench powerbomb comes even closer with Makinen getting his shoulder up a mere heartbeat before Lucy Avatar's hand would have made it a 3-count. Laurel Wreath, excellent at ring-side throughout, is in complete disbelief at that call. Within seconds however Destruction is covering Makinen again, this time after a particularly venomous looking piledriver. This time there is to be no shoulder lifted... but Makinen remains cool enough to lift one leg onto the bottom rope and keep the match alive. Hoisted to his feet again, every fan in the place seems curious to see what violence Max D will unleash next. The big man tossed his opponent into the ropes and, when he comes back, hurls him into the air for what was surely going to be the pop-up power bomb to break Makinen in two had the Swede not brought all of his experience to bear and instead pulls off a wonderful head scissors that brings the crowd to their feet. </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

For a few seconds both men stay down before, as one, they start to lurch back to their feet. Destruction swings wildly again but Makinen ducks beneath and, in the same movement, turns into a Russian Leg Sweep that sends Destruction to his back. Makinen is back up faster this time and is waiting for his larger foe. A running double knee lift to the face leaves Maximum Destruction on his back once more. Operating purely on instinct by now, Max D makes his way back to his feet. Briefly. Makinen fakes a jab and then his whole body seems to explode into a lightening fast spinning heel kick. 1-2-3 after 9'18 and Konrad Makinen has overcome a huge challenge and still remains unbeaten here in SNP.</span></p><p>

<strong>Match Rating: E+</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Manny Morhan:</strong> What a performance from both men! That was as intense a bout as you will see anywhere!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Karma Kollopy:</strong> Konrad Makinen will have made a lot of believers tonight. The amount of punishment that he has absorbed would have destroyed a lesser man. "The Prodigy" indeed!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jackie Goldstein:</strong> Absolutely Karma K. Mark Carnie will be absolutely delighted with his newest signing. Those who were attempting to write off Makinen will have to reevaluate their stance after a performance like that. This guy is here to leave a mark!</p><p> </p><p>

Yet even here, in the cauldron of chaos and competition that is SNP, trust can endure. Bonds can be formed. Brothers-in-arms can be born in the heat of conflict and grow and strengthen with each passing shared battle.</p><p> </p><p>

"The Bad Man" Alton Vicious and "The Dude" Riddick Jordan. The Northern Lights. The Kings of the Black Lions. England's finest. The current, and two-time SNP Tag Team Champions.</p><p> </p><p>

Padraig O'Hearne. "The Daredevil" Matthew Macks. Na Fianna. The Green Knights. The Pride of Ireland. The two-time SNP Tag Team Champions.</p><p> </p><p>

Both pairings are great. But only one can be the greatest. For the losers there will be only the empty, desolate pain of defeat. For the victors, further affirmation of their ability to overcome any challenge put before them. When winning is everything every new battle you face is the greatest you have ever faced. When winning is everything, avoiding defeat becomes everything else.</p><p>

<strong>Angle Rating: E+</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#000080;">The crowd are already buzzing by the time this one gets started with Padraig O'Hearne and Alton Vicious in the ring. Neither team can take an early advantage as they trade holds and jostle for momentum. After a flurry of quick tags we see Riddick Jordan enter against O'Hearne and The Northern Lights take a degree of control by cutting the ring in half and using double-team moves that culminate in a brutal double clothesline. Vicious covers but O'Hearne kicks out more comfortably than anybody could have anticipated. The Irishman endures some more punishment from his foes before ducking under another clothesline attempt and getting to his corner to tag in Matthew Macks.</span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

Macks is giving away a lot of size in this match but he has the heart, the speed and the lethal offence to match anybody. Buoyed by the crowd himself he scored near falls on Vicious (after a leg-drop from the top rope) and Jordan (a majestic moonsault that deserved to end any match). Not for the first time however Macks' propensity for risk comes back to cost him. He hurls himself at Jordan close to the ropes only for the big Englishman to backdrop him over the top rope to an awkward looking landing on the floor below. Kitty Katz' attempt to check on him are interrupted when Alton Vicious gets right up in her face. This, understandably, draws her husband Padraig O'Hearne away from his corner to keep his wife safe from the leering Vicious. Riddick Jordan leaves the ring to weigh in on the "discussion" that is escalating rapidly. </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

Matthew Macks, barely aware of where he is, hauls himself gingerly back into the ring and crawls towards his corner. Outside, O'Hearne has placed his wife behind him and is bravely facing down both members of The Northern Lights. Lucy Avatar shows plenty of courage of her own when she leaves the ring to try and restore order. Macks arrives in his corner and looks up in disbelief when he finds it empty. Tensions are still high outside. Karma Kollopy has left the announcers' table to try and get The Northern Lights to back off. What happens next catches everybody by surprise. Even as Macks tries to recover himself amidst the chaos outside a figure hops the barrier from the crowd side and slides quickly into the ring. It's Black Hole Son (a stablemate of The Northern Lights we last saw on the pre-show tonight). "The Jackal amongst Lions" boots Macks in the guts and hits him with his "Superunknown" finisher (a Canadian Destroyer) before throwing him back towards the centre of the ring and sliding out and disappearing back into the crowd as quickly as he appeared. Kollopy and Avatar finally deal with the situation outside, getting those involved to return to their corners. Riddick Jordan hits a snap suplex on Macks before dragging him to his corner and tagging in Vicious. "The Bad Man" steps in, lays Macks out with his Lights Out finisher and gets the win for the champions at 12'24.</span></p><p>

<strong>Match Rating: D</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Manny Morhan:</strong> The Northern Lights retain the titles! But that was not the definitive outcome we were all hoping for here. It is still very much up for debate who the best tag-team are here in SNP. What can not be disputed is that Vicious and Jordan are still the Tag Team champions.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jackie Goldstein:</strong> Credit where it is due. Both teams here giving it their all but The Northern Lights injecting just enough mayhem to stack the deck and keep the belts around their waists. Brilliant from The Black Lions!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Karma Kollopy:</strong> I'm disgusted with them to be honest. Those guys have all the ability in the world and they shouldn't need to stoop to threatening our ringside managers here. For me it's put a pall on what was shaping up to be a great match.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Colin Picalo © w/Mark Carnie Vs. Dwayne Dark (Weapons Match)</strong><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">(SNP Hardcore Title)</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Colin%20Picalo_zpsw29aqjfx.jpg</span> /w<span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Dwayne%20Dark_zps0k4rpijc.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#000080;">This one kicks off even before Lucy Avatar can get the bell rang with both men flying into each other and unleashing a flurry of blows. With rubbish bins full of weapons scattered around the ring it surprises nobody at all when the action spills outside almost immediately. Dwayne Dark, the larger of the two by some distance takes advantage and stings the champion with a number of stiff kendo stick shots. The Black Lion, who has gotten rather flabby of late, is still a force to be reckoned with and he uses his greater strength to manhandle Picalo back into the ring. He hoists the smaller man over his head and slams him hard to the canvas. After taunting the Scottish crowd, "Hardcore is black and haggis is for pussies!" he turns his attention back to Colin Picalo tossing outside the ring. Picalo makes his way unsteadily back in only to be clotheslined straight back out over the top rope. Dark continues to stride around the ring, insulting the crowd, the announce team and even Mark Carnie, " Your company? Don't make me laugh fat man. The Lions are in control here!" </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

He should have paid more attention to his foe. Picalo has crawled over to one of the weapon bins. He reaches in and emerges with a cricket bat in his hands. A smile plays over the face of the Hardcore champion. He slides back into the ring under the bottom rope. Dwayne Dark's diatribe about how the rest of the UK doesn't even want Scotland is cut off when Picalo drives the cricket bat into his stomach. He doubles over and Picalo cracks the bat down on the flat of his back. He crumples to the mat and the crowd roars its approval. Picalo leathers the bat off Dark's ass before mounting the middle turnbuckle and facing the crowd.</span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

"HOWZAT!!!!" he bellows to the SNP crowd who have completely embraced him by now. He directs Mark Carnie to set up a table outside of the ring. He points to the table, he points to Dwayne Dark. The crowd roar again. Picalo hops down and with a noticeable spring in his step and still twirling his cricket bat in his hands he struts towards his fallen foe. He then proceeds to have one of those classic putz moments that people are coming to associate with him. He drops the bat. Picks it up. Inexplicably drops it again. He's still grinning as he stoops to pick it up again. Dwayne Dark explodes up from the canvas like a Great White Shark (he won't thank us for that comparison) emerging from the depths. He hits Picalo with a running forearm delivered with a terrifying impact. Picalo's smile disappears as his head snaps back. He staggers, Dark catches him and tosses him out of the ring again. This time he hits the table shoulders first and crashes through it. The crowd are on their feet.</span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

As the crowd roar their approval and Mark Carnie frantically checks on the fate of his champion amongst the rubble of the broken table, Dwayne Dark is taking care of business. He heads outside and looks through another of the weapons bins. He abandons a crutch, a tennis racket and an acoustic guitar as being unsuitable for his needs before settling on a pool cue. He snaps it over his knee and stalks around the ring to where Carnie has just helped Colin Picalo back to his feet. Dark bludgeons Picalo about the neck and shoulders with his impromptu club. Carnie takes a shot to the stomach when he tries to break up the attack. Picalo is tossed unceremoniously back into the ring and covered. The gutsy champion kicks out at 2. Carnie is back on the apron, screaming and waving a chair. Dark rushes at him, Carnie tosses the chair over his head, aiming for Colin Picalo. His aim is true, sadly his client had no idea it was coming and it hits him heavily atop the head. Dark smirks, takes up the chair and swings it at Carnie who decides that it's time to make himself scarce. He drops off the apron and backs away. Dark turns back to Picalo who is gamely trying to struggle back to this feet. Dark crashes a chair shot to the prone Picalo's head, hits him once more to the body for good measure and makes the cover. At 9'33 the 3 count is made and Dwayne Dark is the new (and three time) Hardcore champion.</span></p><p>

<strong>Match Rating: D</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Manny Morhan:</strong> We have a new champion. Dwayne Dark is the FIRST person to hold the same title three times in SNP history! A match for the record books. SNP is hardcore!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Karma Kollopy:</strong> Absolutely right Manny. A game effort for Colin Picalo, bad luck dogging him throughout this match. It has been a very, very mixed day for Mark Carnie's stable.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jackie Goldstein:</strong> Like the old adage says, "if you're 5'8 and from the mean streets of Norwich, guts alone will not allow you to dominate big men like Dwayne Dark". Colin Picalo is going to ache in the morning. It's how he bounces back from this that will tell us an awful lot about his character.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Elaborate entrance - Hugh Echoes</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Bret Heartbreak has already made his way to the ring for tonight's main event when the entrance area begins to fill with smoke. More and more of it gathers, filtering down the ramp leading to the ring. Black and white strobe lights start to flicker as mournful, mysterious string music starts to reverberate around the arena. The lights intensify and for the briefest of moments a shadowed figure can be seen at the top of the ramp. Then... there is darkness. The darkness lasts for maybe 30 seconds, the music dies away to nothing. Then the strobes light up again, the smoke is all but gone, the music swells again. Hughes Echoes stands at the top of the ramp, hood pulled over the face and arms spread wide. He starts to stride to the ring. It's time for the King of Scotland title match.</p><p>

<strong>Angle Rating: D+</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hugh Echoes © Vs. Bret Heartbreak </strong><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">(SNP King of Scotland)</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Hugh%20de%20Aske_zpsg8cy82yu.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpg</span><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Bret%20Heartbreak_zps3aqc6jjw.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#000080;">Expectations are high for this one between distinguished champion Hugh Echoes and precocious youngster Bret Heartbreak. There's a palpable buzz around The Chaos Arena as the bell rings and they circle warily. Both men feint but nobody wants to commit too quickly here. They continue to circle each other as the crowd chants, "SNP, SNP". They come closer and lock up. Echoes quickly drives a knee into the teenage Heartbreak's stomach and transitions from there into a headlock takedown. From there he twists Heartbreak around until he has him in a bizarre looking submission hold. Bret Heartbreak turns and wriggles about himself until he has Echoes' shoulders to the mat. It's a quick power out from the champion who has to release his hold to do so.</span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

Both men get back to their feet and begin another wary circle. The match continues like this for a while with flurries of activity broken by cagey circles in which both men look for an opening. The action gets gradually quicker and riskier. Echoes suckers Heartbreak into a sleeper hold that could have decided things if it had been just a little further from the ropes. A rare misstep from Echoes saw him walk into a Samoan Drop from Heartbreak that saw the challenger score a 2 count. Lucy Avatar had to be down quickly when an extended exchange of holds and counter-holds saw Echoes pull Heartbreak off balance and down to the mat for a sudden cover but the youngster, son of the great Byron, kicked out just in the nick of time.</span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#000080;">

Just past the twelve minute mark Avatar loses all control. It's not her fault. Alton Vicious and the newly crowned Dwayne Dark come strolling down the ramp and, simultaneously, Riddick Jordan and Black Hole Son emerged from the crowd (for those keeping count this was B.H.S.'s second unplanned visit to the ring during this card). The Black Lions each take one side of the ring as Hugh Echoes and Bret Heartbreak realise they're being surrounded and stop their assault upon each other. There's a few seconds of rising anticipation before, at an unspoken signal, the quartet of invaders climb to the ring apron. Lucy Avatar demands that they leave the ring area but they ignore her and enter the ring as one. Vicious and Dark immediately attack Hugh Echoes with Jordan and B.H.S. turning their attention to Bret Heartbreak. The attack is brutal and ugly in it's ferocity. Lucy Avatar has no option but to call for the bell. The assault continues until The Black Lions feel they have made their point. They each climb the turnbuckle in a different corner and glory in the boos and jeers of an audience deeply frustrated at this ending to the show.</span></p><p>

<strong>Match rating: C-</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Manny Morhan:</strong> This is just ridiculous! That's two title matches tonight that have been ruined by the Black Lions. What the hell is wrong with these guys?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jackie Goldstein:</strong> I think they're just sending out a reminder that they're still the dominant force around here. I'm not saying that I can get behind their methods but you gotta admit... the results are difficult to argue with!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Karma Kollopy:</strong> No argument from me there Jackie but this can't be allowed to go unpunished either. Hugh Echoes and Bret Heartbreak were serving us up another classic and they deserved better than to have all their hard work undermined like this. It's a pity because this has been a hell of a show.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Manny Morhan:</strong> You're damn right about that Karma! We're just about out of time here so on behalf of Jackie, Karma and myself and everybody here at SNP we thank you for your support of SNP and Hardcore War 2018. Good night everybody, we'll see you in three weeks for Out Of It.</p><p> </p><p>

<p>Wanna say I'm digging this dynasty. I caught up the other day and I'm glad to have caught the show today! SNP is such an easy promotion for me to write off because I'm not a fan of booking products like that, so I'm excited for this dynasty. I also like the catch up in the first couple of posts. The Dragon Lightweight title is pretty rad.</p><p> </p><p>

Just some notes from reading the show</p><p> </p><p>

- I enjoy seeing some storylines and angles develop on the pre-show. Always a nice touch in dynasties.</p><p> </p><p>

- Notorious F.R.E.A.K. looks like a fun character to write. </p><p> </p><p>

- I like the Black Lions stable a lot. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do in the dynasty. </p><p> </p><p>

- Happy to see Cobra in here. He's always a must-sign for me whenever I play. Also happy to see you using his snake. I've literally never thought about using it before despite seeing it in his picture at least a hundred times.</p><p> </p><p>

- While I'm not a fan of booking hardcore matches, I'm always excited to read them and the Hardcore title match was solid. Tossing someone out of the ring through a table is always an A+ spot in my opinion.</p><p> </p><p>

- Love seeing Hugh de Aske here. Another favorite of mine. I'm interested in seeing what his motives/plans are revealed to be. </p><p> </p><p>

- Those dastardly Black Lions ruining a great main event! I imagine Bret and Na Fianna aren't all too happy with Black Lions getting involved in their matches, but I'm curious how Hugh will react to it all. If he'll team up or go on a one man army thing against them.</p><p> </p><p>

Good first show and I'm excited to see where things go from here!</p>

We're booking 15 shows a year in SNP at the moment - two 2-hour "supershows" a year, ten 90 minute efforts and three 1-hour shows in Ireland that I've added in myself as we slowly try and make that our second home. For the record, given the situation I inherited, that means we've 10 shows a year in Scotland, 4 in Ireland and 1 in Northern England (which I accept is fundamentally useless in terms of really building there but I like in terms of the structure so I'm happy to take it on for now).</p><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-username="Atticus" data-cite="Atticus" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="42059" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div>- Notorious F.R.E.A.K. looks like a fun character to write.</div></blockquote><p> </p><p> He's great.

<p>Saturday – Week 3 – April 2018. – Thistle Talk</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Comings/Goings</strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Axl%20Grease_zpswjvg2ucp.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Axl Grease has this week left SNP. The former Hardcore Champion, who was part of our initial roster in March 2015, gave in his notice last week after becoming unhappy with his role in the company. Grease, 33, also had a run with MOSC between April 2005 and February 2010. The highlight of his run with SNP was his 3 week run as Hardcore Champion spread across August/September of 2017. He had a brief, reasonably successful feud with Maxwell Bleak in late 2016 and his association with Kourtney was important in putting her on the map. SNP wishes Axl all the best in his future.</p><p> </p><p>

Alton Vicious and Riddick Jordan go back a long way. It’s over 7 years now since they graduated together from the Ring of Fire Dojo in 2011. It wasn’t until 2015 however, with the establishment of SNP, that they found a lasting home. The Northern Lights, as the pair were known, were part of the initial SNP roster and, indeed, the promotion’s first Tag Team champions. They held the titles from August 2015 all the way through to July 2016. It was a number of months before they lost the belts, in March of 2016, that Vicious and Jordan had joined forces with Dwayne Dark and The Black Lions were born.</p><p> </p><p>

Dark had some real pedigree of his own as one of the five initial graduates from the National School of Wrestling in 2010. He joined 21CW in March of that year and was on the roster there for over two and a half years. A spell in the wilderness followed before he also joined SNP on Day 1 in March of 2015. The only real surprise was that it had taken so long for the trio to come together. All three were English, all three were young, all three were black and all three favoured smash mouth, brutal, hardcore tactics. It was to prove a match made in heaven and all three members found themselves elevated within the group. Dark would go to win the Hardcore title for the first time in August 2016 and hold the title until July of the following year.</p><p> </p><p>

In April 2017 Riddick Jordan would exceed even this achievement, defeating the previously unstoppable Roly Muckletruck at Blood Feud III to lift the King of Scotland title. Jordan’s victory was the culmination of a long, bitterly contested war between The Black Lions and the group called Scotland’s Saviours (Muckletruck, Meathead McAullie and Maximum Destruction). The two teams had traded victories back and forth across the second half of 2016 but Jordan’s ascension to the most prestigious spot in the company was one that Scotland’s Saviours (and particularly Muckletruck) would never recover from. Of course by this point The Black Lions had also added to their numbers.</p><p> </p><p>

In January 2017 Black Hole Son and Sharif both joined the party. B.H.S. (formerly known as Carl Edwards) had wrestled for MOSC as far back as 2007. In his two and a half years in that company he held both their Tag Team and Blood & Beer titles. Sharif, still in his teens today, had graduated from the National School of Wrestling. It’s fair to say that there were high hopes around both men. B.H.S. started quite well, winning a number of matches and even competing alongside Alton Vicious and Dwayne Dark in 3-on-3 matches while Riddick Jordan was defending his King of Scotland title. As the year wore on however his form dipped and his tag team with Sharif (U.K. Panthers) found it impossible to get any sort of traction. </p><p> </p><p>

Still, B.H.S. was a resounding success compared to young Sharif. The SNP crowd just didn’t take to him from the outset and before long he found himself relegated primarily to pre-shows and opening bouts, losing far more than he won and sometimes not being booked at all. While the newer members struggled to find their feet the original Black Lions were feuding, largely successfully, against Carnie’s Angels. Dwayne Dark remained the dominant force in the Hardcore division and The Northern Lights regrouped after Jordan lost the King of Scotland title to become Tag Team champions once more.</p><p> </p><p>

The events of Hardcore War last month served as a reminder that The Black Lions remain the most dangerous group in SNP today. Both The Northern Lights and Dwayne Dark are current champions and there is every sign that Black Hole Son, “The Jackal Amongst Lions” is finally starting to awaken from his torpor. The Black Lions have every intention of remaining the Kings of the SNP jungle. Still scathing in their dismissal of those whom they consider inferior (a list that contains effectively everybody that is not one of their number), this outspoken, confident quintet are still not even in their prime and that is the scariest thing of all for everybody who has to compete against them. The Black Lions are going nowhere but up any time soon.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Questioning Kollopy</strong></p><p>

Q1. How far do you think SNP can realistically aspire to go, can we expect to catch up with 21CW?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>I think the most important thing to say is that we are growing. When I got here the crowds were in the 200s and now we’re regularly clearing 800. I think we can realistically hope to clear 1000 in the not too distant future. That’s genuine progress. As for how much we can grow? I think it’s important not to get too far ahead of ourselves. This is a tough industry. You only have to look at companies like ACPW and BCG going to the wall in the last couple of years to realise that. It’s important that we continue to develop at an organic pace, that we learn from our mistakes and that take things step by step. I don’t really view 21CW as direct competition and I certainly doubt that they lose much sleep thinking about us. They’re in a different league to us right now, offering a very, very different product and, for the most part, catering to a different audience. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Mark Carnie and our more hardcore fans won’t thank me for saying it but our product is going to hold us back eventually. Sponsorship and TV are going to be a very tough nut for us to crack but look, our momentum is going the right way, what we’re offering is improving month on month. There’s every reason for us to be confident going forward and there’s nobody here who isn’t excited by the challenge ahead of us.</em></p><p> </p><p>

Q2. Who’s been the most pleasant surprise/biggest disappointment since you’ve been here?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>I don’t like to single people out. It’s a difficult question too. In terms of pleasant surprises? Riddick Jordan is a name that many people might expect here but I haven’t been surprised by him. He’s been top class since day one and deserved every plaudit he’s gathered. Ditto for Padraig O’Hearne who hasn’t quite broken out to the same degree yet but has all the tools and a great attitude. Bret Heartbreak is probably worth a mention, for somebody as young as he is to be so accomplished is a real feather in his cap.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

At the other end, again, I don’t really want to name names. Maxwell Bleak was a guy that I believed had the world of potential and we gave him every chance. For his own sake I hope he makes the most of his talent and I wish it could have been with us.</em></p><p> </p><p>

Q3. How do you get on with Mark Carnie?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Look, Mark is my boss at the end of the day. We’re human, we disagree some of the time. Ultimately, SNP is his baby, he built it. He has some very definite opinions on how things should be done. They sometimes clash with what I view as the way to go. We’ve butted heads, that’s inevitable when you have two passionate, creative guys. We want the same thing and it’s important that we keep sight of that. I will say this, I respect the hell out of the guy as a performer and I don’t want to leave SNP anytime soon!</em></p><p> </p><p>

Q4. What do you think of the state of British/European wrestling as a whole?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Yeah, overall I think it’s in a good place in the UK. 21CW is obviously the real success story. They’re an international brand now and best of luck to them. I think we’re established in Scotland and Ireland which isn’t bad going for a group our size. I think there’s probably room for another promotion if it came to it. It’s not something I’d necessarily welcome because that would be direct competition but I think we’d be capable of thriving against the challenge too and there’s definitely enough workers out there that any new group wouldn’t necessarily have to come into my locker room looking for talent.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

As for Europe, the three promotions there all seem to be holding their own and there's plenty of talent there too! EWA and VWA will always be in competition and it's nice to see UEW establishing themselves in Spain and Portugal which is hardly a traditional hotbed.</em></p><p> </p><p>

Q5. What made you let Roly Muckletruck go? Will he ever work for SNP again?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Let’s get this one straight once and for all. SNP did not release Roly Muckletruck. Without getting into too much detail this is what happened. Roly got a huge push when I arrived, winning the King of Scotland title and holding it for a full year. He lost it to Riddich Jordan at Blood Feud in 2017 and in that same match he botched a move and injured the new champion quite badly. He worked one more match for us. He won that match and he handed in his notice. It was entirely his decision and we had absolutely no input into his thinking.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

As for him coming back? I’d never say never. Even three or four months ago I’d have said it was extremely unlikely but he came back for the Battle Royal at Carnage in February on a one off deal, he’s still only 31 and, despite not working anywhere really since leaving us, he’s still popular. It’s not part of our short-term plans but certainly it’s more of a possibility now that it once was. As the old cliché goes, time heals.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Next Show - Out Of It 2018 - News</strong></p><p>

We can announce the Main Event for Out Of It which is due to take place in two weeks. Following the controversial ending to Hardcore War it has been decided that the two men whose main event match for the King of Scotland title was interrupted will form a team against two of the men who attacked them in the shape of Tag Team champions Alton Vicious and Riddick Jordan, The Northern Lights. The match will be fought under normal rules with the following addendum – if Hugh Echoes and Bret Heartbreak win, they will win a Tag Team title match at The Great Cork Riot in late May. Should The Northern Lights win, the man who picks up the victory will win a King of Scotland title shot against Hugh Echoes instead.</p><p> </p><p>

Thistle Talk 002 - Saturday, Week 4 April, 2018.








Welcome to another episode of Thistle Talk. My name is Karma Kollopy and, as ever, it is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the show. This week we are just seven days out from Out Of It and, accordingly, much of our focus today is going to be centred around announcing a number of new matches for the card.



Hugh Echoes & Bret Heartbreak Vs. The Northern Lights (Non-title, Cage Match)


Last week we announced the main event, a potentially titanic battle between the SNP Tag Team titles The Northern Lights and the men whose match they gatecrashed at our last show - Bret Heartbreak and the SNP King of Scotland Hugh Echoes. The stipulation attached to this one makes it particularly interesting, should Heartbreak and Echoes win they will get a shot at the Tag Team titles while if they should lose, Vicious or Jordan will be given an opportunity at Hugh Echoes' King of Scotland gold!


In the last week or so there have been seven further matches signed off on and we're going to give you the lowdown on those right now.


http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Carl%20Edwards_zpseg1bbw7c.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Neville%20Jones_zpscprg3ctu.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Rohan%20Kirchner_zpswdtdpytg.jpg w/http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Kourtney_zps1ux92wfp.jpg

Black Hole Son Vs. Neville Jones Vs. Rohan Kirchner w/Kourtney


Black Hole Son made his presence felt at Hardcore War, interfering twice, firstly to help The Northern Lights overcome the challenge of Na Fianna and later on in the mass mugging that ended the show. He also picked up a victory himself on the pre-show and he has thus garnered enough momentum to find himself in this intriguing triple threat match that is being billed as an impromptu number one contender's match for the Dragon Lightweight title. The other two competitors are former champions in their own right - Neville Jones and Rohan Kirchner. Jones, still bidding to become the first man to hold the Dragon Lightweight title three times is always a threat in these matches while Kirchner and Kourtney will view this as a perfect opportunity to bounce back from the disappointment of last month's defeat to Khloe's Kastoffs! All three of these guys know how to fly from bell to bell and whether the victor is "The Jackal Amongst Lions", "The Prince of Wales" or "The South African Sensation" one thing is for sure - the audience will definitely be entertained!



Cobra Vs. Lenny Mochin (Cage Match)


This rivalry is growing more and more storied with each installment. Cobra has won 3 to Mochin's 2 so far but this latest clash between the pair threatens to be the most gripping yet. The pair will be locked inside a steel cage, keeping Mark Carnie (and Cobra's snake Avarice) away from the action and stripping this one back to what it should always be - two ultra-talented young talents bringing all their skills and heart to bear in pursuit of victory.


http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Jimmi%20Addams_zpsnk8qnwtp.jpg w/http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Kourtney_zps1ux92wfp.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Matthew%20Macks_zpstnycjywu.jpg w/http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Kitty%20Katz_zpsbcbejke8.jpg

Jimmi Addams w/Kourtney Vs. Matthew Macks w/Kitty Katz


Jimmi Addams' SNP career has been a quiet success so far and it is worth noting that he is still unbeaten in singles action. That said, flying under the radar will only get you so far in this business and neither Addams himself or his manager Kourtney will be content to stay in the shadows for long. He will face a stern test however in the shape of Matthew Macks. The former Tag Team and Dragon Lightweight champion is still right in the mix for both those titles and will view this match as a opportunity to get things moving in the right direction again after the disappointment of last months controversial defeat against The Northern Lights.


http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Konrad%20Maumlkinen_zpswvm8melp.jpg w/http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Padraig%20OHearne_zpsj1a9kjrs.jpg w/http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Kitty%20Katz_zpsbcbejke8.jpg

Konrad Makinen w/Mark Carnie Vs. Padraig O'Hearne w/Kitty Katz


There's a tangible sense now that Konrad Makinen could be the man to lift Carnie's Angels to the next level. A pair of victories over Maximum Destruction have gone some way towards backing up the hype that has accompanied 'The Prodigy' from the moment he arrived in SNP. In Padraig O'Hearne however he meets a man whose momentum is even greater than his own. Both men are often mentioned as future holders of the King of Scotland title. This match could be a potentially huge statement of intent for them both. The loser of this one will have opportunities in future, both men are young enough and over enough that defeat should not be fatal. For the winner though, there will be a real sense that they have arrived and they would expect to challenge for Hugh Echoes title sooner rather than later!


http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Maximum%20Destruction_zpsrewe7aif.jpg w/http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Laurel%20Wreath_zps50vhpjqk.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Meathead%20McAullie_zpsrxkjdtij.jpg

Maximum Destruction w/Laurel Wreath Vs. Meathead McAullie (Last Man Standing match)


These sometime allies have never been afraid to go head-to-head. Both fierce competitors, they find themselves in very different places ahead of this Last Man Standing match. Meathead McAullie, the first King of Scotland crushed Notorious F.R.E.A.K. last time out, scarcely breaking a sweat in doing so and the whispers are that he fancies his chances of becoming champion again sooner rather than later. Maximum Destruction, on the other hand, is coming in off the back of two consecutive defeats (a rarity for the big man) to Konrad Makinen. Frustration is building in Max D and has been for a while now. A big win at Out Of It would go some way towards getting him back to the place that he wants to be, namely challenging for The King of Scotland title!


http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Notorious%20Freak_zpsirxnbpp3.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/45156409-72fa-45ed-b6ec-150df8d5d857_zpszsdn5aia.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Versus_zpsola8jkdj.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Leighton%20Buzzard_zpsd0xiiqbc.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Jeremy%20Allen_zpskhlryiir.jpg w/http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Khloe_zpse3ulqitj.jpg

Notorious F.R.E.A.K. & Mystery Partner Vs. The Misfits w/Khloe


It’s been a difficult couple of months for Notorious F.R.E.A.K. Kicked out of Carnie’s Angels (beaten out to be more specific) to make way for Konrad Makinen and crushed in a one-sided manner at last month’s Hardcore War, the former Tag Team champion has been experiencing a lean chapter in his career. Recent whispers however suggest that he has found a new tag-team partner who he will unveil at Out Of It. Standing in the way of redemption for F.R.E.A.K. are another pair who are on the rise – The Pulveriser and Phil Bridge, fresh off the back of that huge win over The Koven in 3-on-3 action. They will know that a victory in this match could see them move into the upper echelons on the Tag Team division and in line for competition against the sort of teams who will be making up the last match we’re announcing today.



http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Augustus%20Bumblescoop_zpsqocofo9b.jpghttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Colin%20Picalo_zpsw29aqjfx.jpg /whttp://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah283/DarEatWorld/Mark%20Carnie_zpst3cqf4as.jpg



The Creepy Crawlies w/Mark Carnie Vs. The Funke Bunch Vs. The Golden Sons


The winners of this bout, one would imagine, will be first in line to challenge whoever emerges with the Tag Team titles from The Northern Lights/Echoes & Heartbreak clash. All three of the teams can make a compelling case for being favourites here. The Creepy Crawlies, the duo comprising Augustus Bumblescoop and Colin Picalo, are bringing a lot of recent singles success with them. Bumblescoop is the current Dragon Lightweight champion and Picalo was only recently deposed as Hardcore champion. The Funke Bunch have already been Tag Team champions twice and have all the experience and ability needed to climb to the top of the pile again. The Golden Sons are arguably the form team in the division, having put their recent troubles behind them to return to the sort of form that made them such an exciting prospect in 2016. Any of these teams could win on the day, this one is just too close to call and an awesome tribute to the strength of our Tag Team division.


So there you have it, this being SNP there is EVERY chance that we will add even more matches to the show and certainly to the pre-show. I have got to say, I am beyond excited about Out Of It 2018 and I think that you should be too! It is going to be a show for the ages! Don’t you dare miss it! If you do, I promise you, you will be missing out!
