Mark Smart sits on the big red couch, wearing a black blazer over a vintage Malice in Wonderland t-shirt with the HGC logo emblazoned above the red letters. He clears his throat and checks the details on his clip-board before beginning, looking up to address the camera directly.

 

“The Hollyweird Grappling Company burst onto the scene in December of 1996, establishing the first credible threat to the dominance of the Supreme Federation of Wrestling since the demise of the territory system.

 

“Hollyweird Grappling set out to bring the best of the world to American wrestling, featuring the stars of lucha libre, Japan, Canada, and beyond alongside the talent emerging from the East Coast War and future members of the Hall of Immortals such as Sam Strong, Rip Chord, and Dread.

 

“For many wrestling fans, the first four weeks of the company’s existence were a revelation; Hollyweird TV featured some of the most recognized names in the industry - legendary names like Rip Chord and Sam Strong performed alongside recognised veterans like Larry Vessey and Romeo Heartthrob - but it also provided mainstream American wrestling it’s first exposure to lucha libre and Japanese wrestling.

 

“By the start of 1997 it was easily regarded as one of the most exciting debut companies of the nineties, fuelling speculation that the East Coast War on the independent scene would be mirrored in a prime-time television war between Supreme and a new wrestling super-power.

 

“This speculation reached a fever pitch on January 1st, nineteen ninety seven, when one of the central figures of the East Coast Wars – DAVE Booker Phil Vibert – announced that he was retiring from his role at the seminal East Coast company to join Hollyweird full-time.

 

“We invite you to join us as we take a trip down memory lane and re-examine the first year of the Hollyweird Grappling Company, telling the story week-by-week through the eyes of the men and women who were there. We’ll see the crowning of their first World Heavyweight Champion, the debut of men who will come to define the company in years to come, and discuss some of the choices that were made to give the company it’s unique style and look.

 

“Fans who want to relive the action alongside the memories can find many of these episodes in the online TCW Legacy archive, and we encourage you to seek the episodes out to get the full experience as we retrace the first formative steps of this fledgling company.

 

“Ladies and gentlemen, join us we take a stroll down memory lane and revisit Hollyweird, Year One...”

“…if you thought my board of directors had a fit when I said we’d be opening a wrestling company, you should have seen their reaction when I told them I’d be giving control to a guy in his early twenties…”

“…honestly, I was excited to see what he could do with those resources...”

“...he asked me to go. I chose not to...”

“...be honest, I was miserable there, and I wish that was different...”

“...we hated him. Of course we did. They were young, and they were good. What else could we do?”

“...they sent me out there on that first show and said, brother, you’re losing to Rip Goddamn Chord...”

“...where else would I go? They were hot and getting hotter...”

Stallings, at thirty-five, still looks like the nerdy kid who took over the world with his software. He sits on the balcony of an expensive penthouse, the Golden Gate Bridge visible over his right shoulder. He sips a coke and grins at the camera, oddly at ease with being interviewed compared to his youth.

 

“I was sixteen and I started a wrestling company,” he says. “Really, who wouldn’t, if they were in my position? I was a fan. I’d been trading tapes for years. And suddenly, I had the kind of cash that let me live out a dream.

 

“So I set things in motion and I invested a couple of million. Started recruiting talent that would get investors and broadcasters interested. There were key names, at the beginning, people I figured were absolutely necessary to make it work: Sam Strong; Rip Chord; Coach Pangrazzio; The Vesseys.

 

“That was the list I talked about, when I discussed the company publically. But I had another list – the one that actually got me excited when I thought about what the company could be: Liberty; Ricky Dale Johnson; Mister Lucha; Dark EAGLE.

 

“And then there was Phil Vibert.

 

“If you were talking about wrestling on the internet in ninety-six, you were talking about DAVE and Phil Vibert. And I collected DAVE tapes obsessively. This was a guy who’d taken a small company with guys other companies had overlooked, and he’d turned it into a contender at the East Coast Wars.

 

“Even at sixteen, I was smart enough to recognise he was doing something different, even if I didn’t understand it. But I was smart enough to wonder what he could do with access to money and the kind of talent I wanted to bring in.”

“I had doubts about going,” Vibert says. “I mean, I’d spent the second half of nineteen ninety-six putting together a group of investors who were interested in purchasing DAVE. I’d been booking shows there for close to four years, building the company into a viable product. Buddy Gains was getting ready to wind down as owner, because we’d grown fast and the business side of things was too much for him. He wanted to sell.

 

“I had a five year plan that would see us getting into position to take on Supreme and really revolutionise the industry.

 

“Then I get this phone-call. This sixteen year old billionaire is putting together a wrestling company. Prime time TV deal. Enough money to compete with Supreme on production. Would I be interested in coming and booking?

 

“I wasn’t. Not back then. And they went to Sam Strong as their second choice when they started setting up the company.”

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x15/arwink/JKStalkingsJr.jpg

 

“Strong is a guy you can put in charge of a wrestling company and people will invest,” Stallings says. “He’s the one guy in wrestling everyone recognises. Even if they haven’t seen an episode of Supreme TV in a decade and they’d claw out their own eyes instead of forking out the cash for a pay-per-view, he’s part of the zeitgeist.

 

“So it made my board of directors happy, seeing him on the books. They weren’t exactly thrilled by the idea of starting Hollyweird, but they assumed there was someone involved that would temper my…youthful impulses.”

 

Stallings offers the camera wry grin.

 

“It took about a week of working with Sam Strong to see the limitations of that. For one thing, his vision of wrestling didn’t really match mine. He wanted guys who looked good, rather than guys who were good.”

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x15/arwink/PhilVibert.jpg

 

“Nemesis talked me into taking the contract with Stallings. We were having a conversation about him coming to DAVE after he finished up with Supreme, getting him involved in the booking there. The topic of HGC came up and I mentioned their offer, and he basically told me I was an idiot.

 

“Nem’s always had a real clear vision when it comes to wrestling: did it draw money? Are we getting paid? Everything is subordinate to that, including the art of professional wrestling.

 

“Which is funny, when you consider what happened a few weeks after that conversation, but it did the job. I picked up the phone and started a new conversation. Lined up a meeting where we could talk through my reservations about taking the job.”

“I signed on with Hollyweird for two reasons: the money was good, and Sam Strong wanted me there. We had history, the two of us, and we’d made a lot of money together. That earned him the right to ask for favours, and this was one of those.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“But I’d been around long enough to get nervous about things. For one thing, our boss was a twelve year olds. For another…nothing good ever comes from the guy with the book being in front of the cameras. It’s a recipe for disaster no matter the size of your promotion, and it’s sure as hell a bad idea when the guy with the book is the biggest damn name the industry has ever seen.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“There is no rush quite like that feeling you get when you’re out there in front of the crowd. Trust me on this - I haven’t found anything to match it, and I’ve explored a whole bunch of options.”</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Chord pauses, offering the camera an uncomfortable smile. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“I’m not surprised Sam took the job. Find me a top guy who doesn’t believe they can book better than anyone they’re working for, and I promise you they’re lying. We all think we can do better, and sometimes we’re right.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“But it never works when we’re in front of the camera. It’s why I stayed behind the scenes, when we kicked of MAW.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“You want your booker focused on business and keeping the attendance growing. They don’t care about storylines or having great matches, they care about the money. You don’t want them to split their focus – you want your booker focused on the big picture, and you want your talent focused on getting themselves over.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“That’s how it works. Put yourself in front of the camera, and it’s human nature to start putting yourself at the heart of everything, even if you don’t have an ego. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“And let’s be honest…Sam Strong is a guy with plenty of ego.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“So, no, I wasn’t angry when they took the book off Sam. Not until we heard who they were bringing in…”</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“Hardest contracts I’ve ever had to negotiate.” Stallings shakes his head ruefully, rolling his eyes. “Strong made it difficult. Vibert made it difficult. The money-men running my company made it harder still. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“We were about four weeks out from launching when I made it clear I wanted to change. Strong wasn’t happy with me, but that was nothing new. He’d been unhappy with me since he first came aboard and we’d started fighting about guys like Paul Steadyfast and Electico.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“But this was a whole new level of heat. His lawyers threatened to come after us for breach of contract, claiming that he’d been promised control over the book. Threatened to have him walk, if that wasn’t the case.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“Meanwhile, Vibert has…requirements. He’d spent years in control of everything at DAVE and was on the verge of getting total ownership. Giving that up to work for me wasn’t appealing, even with the money on offer.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“We tried to compromise. Strong as Vibert as co-bookers on Hollyweird TV. That got shot down by both of them. Offering Strong creative control over his character, so he wouldn’t be adversely affected by the booking. That got shot down too.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“So we kept going back-and-forth. Trying to make it worth. That’s how we ended up with Creative Control on both Strong and Chord’s contracts. How we ended up with some of the crazier concessions on their wage-matching and block certain hiring choices.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“If I’d been smarter, I would have walked away. But I was sixteen years old and a massive fan, and I wanted what I wanted.”</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“So yeah, I came in with heat backstage. That would have happened regardless. There were guys among the old guard who truly believed that DAVE had destroyed wrestling by promoting a hardcore style. Coach Pangrazzio told me that openly, and promised he’d be there to laugh when I got fired.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“To be honest, that didn’t bother me. Even without the contract negotiations, I would have tread on people’s toes. Because Strong had a vision, when he started recruiting names, and it didn’t match mine at all.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“Let me throw out some names: Charlie Homicide – 42; Romeo Heartthrob – 42; Dusty Streets – 45; Joey Flame – 44; Richie Pangrazzio – 41, and he’d been out of the business for seven years; Teddy Flame – 48; Rip Chord – 47; Sam Strong – 50.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“Those were the names Strong was counting on to carry the promotion. They were pushing Larry Vessey as a new face at the age of thirty-eight. They were pushing the Demons as a hot new tag-team when they were both approaching forty and getting ready to slow down.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“The only young guys they were pushing were Liberty and BLZ Bubb, and they were basically Sam Strong the sequel and the exact type of monster that Eisen had used to get Strong over in the eighties.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“Hollyweird was a company set to trade on nostalgia, and that needed to change if it was going to survive.”</div></div></div>

I only became aware of TEW in the last couple of months. Accordingly I know next to nothing about the CVerse and even less about it in 1997.

 

The way you're telling this though... the taste of nostalgia is delicious! :D I might even learn something I can apply to my modern SNP dynasty!

Monty Walker leans against the counter of the Seattle café he owns, his crimson hair falling across his face as he contemplates the question.

 

“The debut episode was a strange deal,” he says. “We all showed up and it was obvious people thought of themselves as a Strong guy or a Vibert guy. Maybe it wasn’t intentional, but we all kinda…congregated. Hung out together. Eyed the other side of the locker room warily, in case they tried to pull something.

 

“It was weird, man, after being in DAVE for three years. Phil really made that locker room feel like a team – we were all building something together, and the company mattered more than the individual. You’d put a guy over because it was best for DAVE, and you knew he’d do the same for you when the time came.

 

“Plus, you know…there were guys in that locker room who seriously talked about seeing the Stones on their first tour. What the hell was that, you know?”

Charlie Homicide looks very different out of the ring. The ageing brawler smiles without actually looking like he’s thinking about twisting the head off a kitten, for example, and he wears a cap to cover the infamous tattoo on his forehead.

 

“I looked forward to working with Phil. I’d followed DAVE for a few years – thought about going there, before Hollyweird came along – and I knew he was tight with John Campbell after they worked together back when Phil was breaking in. Campbell and I have…well, similar ideas and approaches to the industry…so when he said Phil was one of us, I took him at his word.

 

“I still wasn’t prepared.

 

“I knew Strong’s plan for me. I was there because Stallings was a fan of hardcore wrestling and Strong knew I could deliver that, even if I wasn’t quite the madman I’d been in my youth. I’d get a run at the belt, ‘cause Strong knew he’d burn through heels fast with his booking, but his nemesis was Rip Chord and the rest of us were just the threat of the week.

 

“Vibert, it turns out, had different ideas.”

 

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x15/arwink/RCB.jpg

 

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x15/arwink/PhilVibert.jpg

 

“There were two problems with Sam Strong’s plans for HGC,” Vibert says. “The first was the age of his main event. The second…well, there’s a phenomenon in wrestling that’s pretty much unique to any company Sam Strong works in.

 

“Wrestling is built on the chase – a plucky babyface trying to take the title off a bastard heel. I’ve dressed it up in all sorts of ways, over the last few decades, but the core of every wrestling angle is built on an antagonist denying a protagonist the thing they really want.

 

“The only time that’s ever been untrue is a period in the eighties where Strong was the Supreme Champion, a long-reigning babyface fending off the threats of monster heels every week. Usually that sort of thing lasts for a few months at best, a change of pace before you go back to the familiar dynamic.

 

“Strong’s shortest reign in the main event lasted two years, and he was never away from the title for more than a few months.

 

“His bias showed in talent he’d hired to populate the top of the card. Our whole upper card, Rip Chord aside, were being positioned faces. The only natural antagonists for Strong were Heartthrob and Homicide, neither of whom were ready to be positioned as a legitimate threat to an icon like Strong.

 

“Which meant we either ran with the storyline everyone expected and played out Chord versus Strong for the millionth goddamn time – and I swear to you, that was probably the plan before I came aboard - or we had to build new stars much faster than Strong had anticipated.

 

“And when you’re looking to build a youth movement, that’s a significant problem, ‘cause there’s only so much screen-time you can use to solve the problem…”

The Vanguard like to fly, although Jason Jackson sets out to remind people he’s an underrated mat technician here. The Nation of Filth like to hit people, particularly when they can get them ringside and make use of guard rails, ring posts, and the apron to inflict more damage. Their power gives them an edge, but the recklessness of The Danger Kid is an X-factor the Filth don’t account for. The Kid wipes out Stink with a wild tope con hilo, Jackson puts down Grunt with a moonsault press, then the Kid comes off the top rope with the Tumbleweed Legdrop to finish things.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Liberty moves fast and hits hard, battering opponents around the ring. Shaud Miller responds with big power, unleashing three hundred pounds of muscle to try and slow Liberty down. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

It fails. Liberty unleashes a series of big chops, hits the ropes and catches the big man with a running bulldog that earns him a two-count. From there, he sets up for the Liberation Slam, getting an impressive pop when he gets the big heavyweight up and powers him into the mat. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

There is no mistaking the athleticism of Bryan Vessey – he’s fast, he’s got near perfect balance, and he seems preternaturally aware of his position inside the ring. Jimmy Power has nearly thirty-five years of in-ring experience and he needs all of it to hold his own against the younger Vessey, unleashing cheap shot after cheap shot in order to get himself out of trouble. It’s a tactic that serves him well, but it’s not enough – Vessey gets him on the mat and locks in the crossface, giving Power no choice but to tap out. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

The cruiserweight battle had been even…right up until the luchador’s supposed allly, Monty Walker, had hit the ring with a steel chair and creased the back of Mr Lucha’s skull. This began a three-on-two beat-down of the luchadors, that only ended when Walker got his hands on a microphone and issued a warning.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

This is short and lightning fast, featuring a mix of styles that sees the action flit from hard-hitting kicks to high-flying action to the show, grandstanding offense of Jack Bruce. Electrico spends much of the match targeting Walker, trying to get revenge for last week’s assault, and Walker frustrates the masked man by tagging in his compatriots as much as possible. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Golden Fox is hauled off the top rope by Walker about six minutes into the match and lands badly, noticeably limping in the aftermath. Having one third of their team slowed, particularly when it’s the third that relies heaviest on his kicks, proves to be problematic for Electrico and the Spirit Warriors, and they find themselves on the losing end after Ramon Paez connects with a Springboard Moonsault on Dark EAGLE. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Rip Chord walked down the ramp, dressed to compete, adjusting the tap at his wrists. He called for a microphone, paused long enough to yell at the member of the ring crew when they failed to deliver it instantly, then climbed the ring steps.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

But he’s cut off by a stiff clothesline from a giant, hooded man who leaps over the guard rail. A second man follows and the two throw back their heads, revealing the mohawked Demons of Rage.

Charlie Homicide is crazy. Perhaps not a big surprise, given his name, but there’s something about his in-ring presence that really clarifies it for the audience. He’s a powerhouse presence with a vacant stare, a reckless disregard for his own safety, and a viciousness that few can match.</strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong> </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

For all that, he’s found an equal in Streets. The veteran is a rugged, old-school brawler who thrives in the kind of hard-hitting bout that Homicide favours, and Streets has been around long enough to see most of Homicide’s tricks coming. He’s seconded by Ricky Dale Johnson, the cowboy he’s mentoring for the past few weeks, and the Cowboy proves adept at stopping most of Karen Killer’s interference.</strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong> </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

Homicide’s response is to hit harder, get angrier, and generally loose the thin veneer of control that keeps him from letting lose. He goes to ringside and grabs a chair just shy of twelve minutes in, blatantly smashing Streets in the head within full view of the referee. </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong> </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

As Homicide steps forward, ready to start attacking, the Cowboy gets some back-up when Whistler charges down the ramp and slides into the ring.

Sam Strong’s music hits and the Psychedelic Icon head down the ramp. He meets the Streets and his friends, halfway down the ramp, and pauses long enough to have a muted conversation.

Sam Strong vs. Romeo Heartthrob</strong></strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong><strong>

Sam Strong wastes no time going after his opponent, using his size and power to establish a commanding presence in the opening of the match. Heartthrob finds himself on the losing end of a test of strength, backed into the corner again and again where he is easy prey for Strong’s powerful shoulder blocks.</strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong> </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

But it soon becomes obvious that Heartthrob has come into the match with a plan. It starts when he seizes an opening and jabs Strong in the eyes, following it with a quick neckbreaker. From there, he is on Strong’s neck constantly, wearing the bigger man down with every piece of offense.</strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong> </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

About halfway through the match, Charlie Homicide exposes a turnbuckles. He’s immediately crash-tackles by Whistler and the two men brawl, forcing the referee to evict them both from ringside. </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong> </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

BLZ Bubb, to everyone’s considerable surprise, just stands and watches. Arms folded. Expression stern. Observing everything.</strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong> </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

But the exposed turnbuckle is an opportunity and Heartthrob makes use of it, launching Strong into the exposed steel with a catapult and then battering his neck into the turnbuckle three or four times before he’s dragged away. Strong rubs at his neck as he stumbles back into the match, and his offense grows increasingly desperate as Heartthrob continues to target the injury. Strong powers out of the first attempt at locking in the Cupid’s Kiss. The second time, he crawls to the ropes. </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong> </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

The third time, he only breaks the submission by falling backwards and using his own weight to jar Heartthrob free, even though it takes almost as much out of Strong. The Psychedelic Warrior struggles to his feet and starts mounting a come-back, feeding on the crowd as he builds some momentum and finally nails Heartthrob with the Strong Arm Tactic to pick up the pinfall. </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong> </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

Heartthrob stands and signals for Strong’s music to be cut. He edged towards Strong, cautiously, and offered a hand. For a moment Strong just stared, uncertain about trusting Heartthrob, but eventually the two men shook and Heartthrob raised Strong’s arm. Heartthrob then headed for the ropes, leaving Strong to the ring—</strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong> </strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

--which is when BLZ Bubb makes his move, attacking Strong from behind and clubbing him to the match.

The bell is rung several times. Referees swarm the ring. Even Heartthrob rolls back in, making an effort to try and pull BLZ Bubb off the Icon before Strong is choked out.

A punching bag swings back-and-forth behind him.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“I knew we were solid. Stallings had gone out of his way to recruit us, and when you started talking tag-teams there weren’t many established options on the books. Larry was in the best shape of his life, in full on Ivan Drago mode. Just incredibly goddamn shredded.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“For us, it was business as usual. We’d go out. We’d get over on our ability and our athleticism. Larry would punch people and I’d throw them around. We’d dominate the tag-team ranks, maybe get a sniff of a singles push when they needed someone to work a program with the champion. I figured, worst case scenario, they’d break up the All-Star Team and we’d lose Coach as a mouthpiece. Maybe work a program with Richie, before he packed it in and retired for good.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“The first time I ever met Phil was right after he came on-board. They did this state of the union thing after the second week of TV, talked us through the changes. One of them was the announcement that there’d be a second TV show coming, give some of the undercard a chance to get some screen-time. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“I didn’t think much of it. We weren’t an undercard act, and I figured we wouldn’t be working Underground too often. But Phil tracked me down after that meeting and talked me through the vision he had. Spent about an hour selling me on his plan for the next twelve months, and how I could fit into it. Talked through putting a little more focus on my submission work, instead of using the Driver to end things. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“People who wonder how Phil Vibert does what he does have never been put in the room with the man when he’s pitching them an idea.”</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

</div></div></div><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x15/arwink/RCB.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

</div></div></div><span>http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x15/arwink/MitchNaess.jpg</span><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“Underground TV was somewhere between a compromise and a necessity.” Mitch Naess leans back in a leather office chair, the walls behind him covered in framed DAVE, HGC, and PSW event posters where he’s called the action. “Phil figured it was a necessity because they had a lot of talent that needed to be made, and an extra hour of TV every week gave him the option to do that. He pitched the idea to Stallings and Stallings people went out and made it happen – Friday night spots on NCTV and Maple Leaf Sports.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“The compromise came from Phil’s vision for the show. He wanted the freedom to give the show its own identity…which wasn’t quite code for putting DAVE on television, but it came pretty close. He elected to shoot with its own production crew, in smaller venues, instead of taping in front of Hollyweird TV. He hand-picked the talent who’d be getting focus there. He went and invested in a host of new talent with the goal of making them Underground guys.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“It would be years before they finally bit the bullet and set up a separate brand, but the intent was there, right from the beginning. I think, in the back of his mind, it was his back-up plan – if he s—t the bed booking the main show and Stallings had to replace him, he figured Underground TV was the thing where he could do the one thing he’d always done well: build new stars and develop talent.”</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Grunt sits on the big red couch, an open bottle of Jim Beam clenched in one fist. He grins widely, and belches. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“I thought we were made,” he says. “Underground TV? The man who made hardcore a household name on the East Coast? Figured me and Stink would be at the heart of it from the beginning, raising hell and kicking in teeth.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“Wasn’t just me, either. Dusty Streets had kinda taken me under his wing, started offering advice on how to do the tag-team thing. One of the Demons was doing the same with Stinky. We had the experience. We had the chemistry. People honestly thought we were going to be the next big thing in tag-team wrestling.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“But we show for the first taping and we’re working a dark match. No f—kin’ plans for angle. Just a couple of months working the pre-show, getting </div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><em>seasoned</em></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">."</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Grunt shakes his head.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

"And yeah, we were pissed. These days, I get it, but back then we were young and drinking way too much. We had all this stuff feeding our ego. So, yeah, we started getting crazy and listening to the guys on Strong's side of the locker room.”</div></div></div>

- EPISODE 1 PREVIEW –

 

Coming up on our latest HGC Archive Instalment, filmed at The Ministry in Queens, New York, the debut episode of HGC Underground TV:

 

“Reckless” Ramon Paez has been making waves in recent weeks, but his rising star has been overshadowed by the man who pinned Rip Chord – The American Outlaw, Liberty. The two men meet for the first time in the very first match of Underground TV.

 

Tag-team action follows when the ambitious, newly formed duo of The Vanguard taking on one of the most dangerous tag-teams in the world, The Demons of Rage.

 

Craig Prince is regarded as one of the finest technicians in Canadian wrestling, and he’ll be making his American debut on Underground TV when he faces the hottest prospect of the All-Star Team, Bryan Vessey.

 

And in our first main event? The Pugilistic Patriot, Whistler, will meet HGC’s resident psychopath, the madman Charlie Homicide. Whistler is looking for some payback for Homicide’s attack on Dusty Streets on Tuesday night, but Homicide has told HGC he doesn’t care who he fights...so long as he gets an outlet for the violence that lurks in his heart.

Whistler vs. Charlie Homicide

Bryan Vessey vs. Craig Prince

Paez hits the ring with hot blond on his arm, taking a moment to pose for the crowd while she removes her Calgary Flames jersey and reveal the tight Flames tank-top she wears underneath. Paez nods in appreciation, smirks at the crowd, then smirks at Liberty as the American Outlaw makes his entrance.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Then Paez jumps the bigger man as Liberty is ducking through the ropes. The bell rings instantly and the match is on, Paez wailing on Liberty while he’s tangled in the ropes. Liberty gets free, pushes Paez away to get some space, and Paez is back on him with a series of flashy kicks.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Liberty responds with a big clothesline and Paez immediately slides out of the ring, getting tended by his valet as he shakes off the impact. Liberty goes to follow and Paez takes advantage again, nailing Liberty with a dropkick from the floor as the big man ducks under the ropes. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Paez rolls into the ring and plays to the crowd after that, taunting them and talking himself up. That proves to be the mistake. Liberty recovers and takes the fight to the cocky youngster, peppering him with punches and slams. Forletta makes an attempt to interfere, throwing her jersey at Liberty as a distraction, and it allows Paez a brief chain of offense as he cuts Liberty’s feet out with a low drop kick. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Liberty rolls free of the Springboard Moonsault that follows, letting Paez make contact with the mat, it isn’t long after that the Liberation Slam gives Liberty the win. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

The Vanguard are on fire in the opening minutes of this match, using speed and high-impact moves to keep the Demons off-guard. They build up to a sequence that sees Kidd kick Anger into the turnbuckles, setting up for a flying forearm from Jason Jackson and a follow-up by a leg lariat from Kidd.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Demon Anger powers out of the cover and starts a period of dominance for the Demons, the two monsters using their superior size and experience to cut the ring in half and brutalize Jason Jackson with a series of forearm shivs and double-team slams. The Vanguard never really recover from that, and ultimately Jackson falls to the Double Demon Down. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

He’s barely made it a dozen feet before he’s jumped from behind by Monty Walker. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Walker fires a series of right hands into Lucha’s face before throwing him into the guard rail, propping him there long enough to connect with the superkick.

Bryan Vessey w/Richie Pangrazzio vs. Craig Prince</strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>

</strong></div></div></div></div><p></p><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Romeo Heartthrob spends the opening minutes of the match putting over Craig Prince’s mastery of the katahajime, listing the Canadian legends who have been choked out by the young technician. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

It seems that Bryan Vessey is just as aware of Prince’s lethal submission, guarding against it constantly as the two men engage in a heated technical exchange. The moment Prince is anywhere near applying the hold, Vessey swings a desperate elbow and works to get free, even if it means giving up his own position. Prince, for his part, does the same whenever Vessey looks for the crossface.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

With the two so evenly matched on the canvas, the result ends up hinging on the sequence where the two men exchange strikes. A series of stiff forearm shivs see Vessey stun Prince long enough to take him down and latch on the crossface submission, and Prince has enough awareness of his situation to tap in a matter of seconds. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

A brutal match between two legit tough guys: one, a former marine; the other, outright crazy and utterly reckless. It doesn’t take long before they’re trading wild punches, and it’s not long after that before the two men are spilling out of the ring and brawling through the ringside area.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

The action gets incredibly heated and soon spirals out of control, the two men tearing into each other like savage animals. Whistler gives as good as he gets and the referee finally calls for the bell, throwing the match out when it becomes obvious that there is no way of controlling the two men.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

</div></div></div><div style="text-align:center;"><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>Whistler drew with Charlie Homicide in 12:24 when the referee stopped the match.</strong></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

The bell is rung but neither competitor seems willing to let it go. They tumble out of the ring, still throwing punches, brawling up the ramp as Homicide tries to get some distance between them. They make it to the stage—</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

And BLZ Bubb appears, connecting with a reverse clothesline to the back of Whistler’s head, hitting hard enough to stun. Homicide capitalises immediately, grabbing Whistler and spiking Whistler with a DDT onto the stage.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

He smiles at BLZ Bubb, somehow coming off as the more frightening of the two. The maniac grabs a microphone and looks up at the demon.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

</div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>Homicide: </strong></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">You know what to do.</div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

BLZ Bubb nods and lifts Whistler into position for the Hades Bomb, then powers him off the edge of the stage and into a table filled with lighting equipment. Sparks fly as Charlie Homicide laughs and Mitch Naess, obviously panicked on commentary, calls for medics and security alike. </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

“I had a vision for pro-wrestling. I had it when I started working at New York City Wrestling, managing Steve Flash for the first time. I had it when I started DAVE, and I built the promotion on the back of three men that best exemplified that vision. And I had it when I stepped into Hollyweird Grappling for the first time, and pitched the idea of Underground TV.

 

“People expected hardcore, but hardcore had run its course. Even if I’d stayed with DAVE, the style would have changed. There’s a reason we’d brought in Michael Cook. There’s a reason JD Morgan was getting pushed as the chosen one. The future of DAVE wasn’t barbed wire and trash cans - it was a cutting-edge, athletic style that has come to define Total Championship Wrestling in the twenty-first century. If I’d stayed with DAVE, the next five years would have been spent training the fans to accept that change.

 

“And DAVE would be holding the spot currently occupied by TCW.

 

“Underground TV was my chance to implement that vision on far wider stage. Yes, we gave people Whistler versus Homicide in the main event, because we were chasing that ten percent of passionate wrestling fans who believed that hardcore was the future of wrestling. We gave them two of the best brawlers on the roster, and we let them tear it up.

 

“But we gave them Romeo Heartthrob on commentary, talking about the skill involved in breaking a man down with holds and submissions instead of relying on innuendo. We gave them Ramon Paez going toe-to-toe with the hottest rising star in the company, and we gave them Liberty keeping pace with a cruiserweight.

 

“And we gave them their first real hint of what would happen when Bryan Vessey and an unknown shooter from Canada could do when they were told to go out there and try to steal the show.”

“Phil Vibert is a cocky son of a bitch. Sometimes, he has a right to be.”

 

Rip Chord is on the porch of his Texas ranch, a pitcher of iced tea at his elbow. He pours a glass to buy himself time, chews over his next words carefully.

 

“Underground was a risk. We were a new company, a new production crew…adding another TV show to the mix stretched people an awful lot. He took a lot of care to give it a different feel in front of the cameras, but behind the scenes…Archie Judge was making noise about the extra hours, the extra miles. Sam Sparrow, Dewy Libertine, Pat Deacon, all of them doing extra work for no real extra money. Charlie and Whistler doing extra days, on top of the house shows, and Phil wasn’t interested in doing things like Supreme. If he had you on the Underground loop, you were on it every week.

 

“An extra show was a lot of work, and a lot of boys were making noise about it. That was the gamble of it.

 

“But I’ll give this to him – he believed in what he was doing. He went out there and sold it with conviction. And because he believed, kids like Paez went out there and stepped up their game.”

“I’m a Phil Vibert guy. I got no shame in saying that.” Ramon Paez sits in a Tokyo sushi restaurant, across the road from Sapparo Sports Park. “I wasn’t the guy anyone expected to see succeed in the cruiserweight division, 'specially playing heel. Jack had the charisma. Monty too, but he backed it with his time in DAVE, learning how to work a whole bunch of different styles. I flew. That was my thing. No-one was paying to see me brawl. No-one expected me to go on the mat.

 

“I’m five-eight. A hundred and seventy pounds. I figure I’m there to bump for Lucha and Electrico, guys like that. Raise my profile, head back to Three-Pee-Dub in a position to earn a little more. Maybe find my way to Rapid Pro after a year or two.

 

“Phil Vibert watches me wrestle one dark match and he’s waiting for me backstage. First words out of his mouth are ‘Kid, we’re going to make some money.’

 

“One week later I’m starting the angle with Liberty, who was hot as things got in Hollyweird at the time. I've got a girl. I've got an angle brewing. I've got Power watching my back. And I’m, like, really? Out of all these guys? What the hell, you know?”

“People talk about Phil Vibert’s goals of building a youth movement and eradicating the old guard he’d inherited from Strong. But he wasn’t just focused on the young guys – he looked at everyone and tried to get something out of them. All you had to do was be willing to work with him, rather than standing in his way.

 

“I was forty-two years old when I started with Hollyweird. I wouldn’t have admitted to the fact I was slowing down, but I was hurting and I was falling back on the things I knew how to do. I didn’t have much interest in reinventing myself. I didn’t kid myself about being a top guy, not in a company with Sam and Rip.

 

“No surprises there. I’d worked with Sam in Supreme. Worked with him Japan. Made plenty of money both times, but I knew how the game was played. Three months of chasing the champ, head onto the next territory. Always the antagonist, never the star.

 

“But if you look at those first six months, a lot of those shows were being built around me and Heartthrob. The first tag-team he really built was The Vanguard. He had Heartthrob doing colour on Underground, breaking down the action instead of doing his Heartthrob shtick.

 

“Phil wasn’t against the old guard. He might not have been thrilled to have so many of us around, but he didn’t go out of his way to bury us or keep us off the show.

 

“And, for some of us, it took our career places we weren’t expecting them to go”

Kid and Jackson move at high-speed, outpacing Savage Fury and using that to keep the big men off-balance. Jackson uses his speed to get opponents on the ground and start applying submission holds. The Danger Kid goes up-top, getting increasingly reckless as the match progresses. It’s the Kid who eventually picks up the victory, courtesy of the Tumbleweed Leg Drop on Warrior.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

The camera pulls back to reveal Dusty Streets and Whistler observing, the latter wearing a neck-collar after the assault he suffered in the main event of Underground TV. Dusty offers advice, small adjustments to the Cowboy’s footwork that will give his strikes more power. Whistler offers commentary on the big Texan’s punching. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Ricky Dale powers forward and hits the punching bag with a diving lariat that rips the bag off its chain. Ricky Dale drops to his knees, sweating. Stays there for a moment, then stands, hauls the bag onto his shoulder, and re-attaches it for another run.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

These two are solid, old-school technical wrestlers and they put on a solid, old-school match. Big slams to soften up one-another, mat-work to take advantage of the injuries and wear each other down. Dusty has the experience edge, and it proves to be the decider – he pins Jimmy Power with the Dust Off to take the win. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

We watch tapes. We eliminate the weaknesses in our game, and we exploit the weaknesses in others.

The Demons waste no time here, trying to overwhelm the Vesseys with sheer power and brutality. The Vesseys respond with their signature, hard-hitting teamwork. With both sides playing to their strengths, relying on teamwork built-up over a hundred matches, the results were always going to be impressive, and the hard-fought war comes dangerously close to stealing the show. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Larry Vessey hits the ring, unleashing a Sick Cycle on Spite that knocks the big demon to the mat. Vessey hoists Bryan to his feet as Anger hits the ring and together the two Vesseys hit a double clothesline on the big man, knocking him to the ground. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

It takes more than that to take out either Vessey. Unfortunately, Spite is on his feet with the chair once more and he uses it devastating effect. The first chair-shot takes out Bryan Vessey. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

The second is intercepted by a big boot from Larry, which crunches the chair into Spite’s face, but Anger is back in the fray now and he clubs Larry from behind. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Together, the Demons unleash hell, finally hitting the Double Demon Down on the chair to prevent Larry Vessey from rising. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Walker put EAGLE’s tag-team partner out of action last week and the masked man appears to be looking for payback. He works Walker over with stiff chops for several minutes, building up to the lethal kicks and throws that make up the bulk of EAGLE’s offense. Walker holds on as best he can, responding with forearms and kicks of his own, but EAGLE’s motivation gives him an edge.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Right up until Walker fakes an injury, limping over to the ropes, in order to distract the referee. Ramon Paez is suddenly on the ring apron, distracting Dark EAGLE. Jack Bruce hits the ring from the other direction, catching EAGLE from behind and hitting the New York Minute.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">
