sportsfanmas Posted January 4, 2017 Author Share Posted January 4, 2017 Tuesday Throwdown, Week 3, Nov. 2016 Held in City Bank Auditorium, Lubbock, TX Attendance- 2,189 Time for me to run the next show, and this will be a no graphics post, as I mentioned earlier. The highlights will be taken from my eyes only. 9 incredible matches (I hope) so let's get to it. Mid-South Women's Tournament Match Lei'd Tapa (3 points) vs. Santana Garrett (0 points) Tapa dominated this match from start to finish, but accidentally shoved the referee down in the process. This resulted in a disqualification victory for Garrett, who picks up her lone 2 points in this Women's Tournament. Rating: 30 In-Ring Performances Santana Garrett- 40 Lei'D Tapa- 19 Garrett did a great job selling the powerless victim, while Tapa was way off her game tonight. Mid-South World Heavyweight Tournament Match Crimson (4 points) vs. Perry Saturn (6 points) Crimson needed a win here to ensure a spot in the Semifinals and a possible First Round bye, and he got it, pinning Saturn after an Exploder Suplex. Rating: 37 In-Ring Performances: Crimson- 42 Saturn- 25 Mid-South Cruiserweight Tournament Match Little Guido (1 point) vs. Shannon Moore (2 points) Shannon Moore carried this match in the ring, but despite that, these 2 athletes showed great chemistry working together. In the end, it was Moore that came through with the victory, pinning Guido after a Mooregasm to get 3 big points. Rating: 42 In-Ring Performances: Shannon Moore- 48 Little Guido- 27 Mid-South Women's Tournament Match Mickie James (6 points) vs. Melina Perez (3 points) A decent match here, as Melina just needed to win to advance to the semifinals, and she did. Although not the clean victory I was hoping for, she got the pin over Mickie James by hitting her with a foreign object to steal (literally) 3 points and the top seed out of Pool A. Rating: 42 In-Ring Performances: Mickie James- 49 Melina Perez- 40 Mid-South Cruiserweight Tournament Match Sonjay Dutt (4 points) vs. Rockstar Spud (2 points) Another match that had some decent wrestling, the fans were treated to a fine display by both men. In the end, Spud got the pinfall with a 5 Stone Spud Splash, getting 3 points and advancing to the Cruiserweight Semifinals out of Pool A. Rating: 49 In-ring Performances: Rockstar Spud- 51 Sonjay Dutt- 45 Mid-South World Tag Tournament Match The Bro-Mans (4 points) vs. Cryme Tyme (4 points) A very important match here, as the winner would advance to the World Tag semifinals as the top seed out of pool A, while the losing team would have to wait to see. Another match with decent wrestling, but Cryme Tyme continued to stay hot when Shad Gaspard pinned Jessie Godderz after an STO. Cryme Tyme clinches the top seed from Pool A with this win. Rating: 43 In-ring Performances: JTG- 46 Robbie E- 46 Shad Gaspard- 44 Jessie Godderz- 34 Godderz was the weak link in this one, which disappoints me because I think he has a very high ceiling. Mid-South World Heavyweight Tournament Match D'Lo Brown (3 points) vs. Sim Snuka (3 points) With all 4 competitors in Pool A even at 3 points, it's pretty simple, win your match by any means and advance to bracket play. D'Lo Brown took the first step tonight, beating Snuka with the Sky High to clinch advancement in the World Heavyweight Title Tournament. Now he has to wait around for the Gunner/Rob Terry match next week to see if A. He wins the group, and B. If his 6 points will be enough to get a First Round Bye. Rating: 44 In-ring Performances: D'Lo Brown- 50 Sim Snuka- 32 Mid-South World Tag Tournament Match Motor City Machine Guns (0 points) vs. British Invasion (2 points) An outstanding match that the crowd somewhat got into. These 2 teams are no strangers to each other, and they put on a fantastic display. In the end, the British Invasion kept MCMG pointless in this tournament, as Doug Williams hit the Chaos Theory on Alex Shelley and pinned him. With the win, British Invasion clinch the runner-up spot in Pool B and will face the Pool A winner in the World Tag semifinals. Rating: 61 In-ring Performances: Alex Shelley- 64 Chris Sabin- 62 Magnus- 58 Doug Williams- 58 Even though the match was a classic (at least by Mid-South Wrestling standards), Magnus was a bit off his game. I'll have to watch his performance in the coming weeks. More than likely he wasn't happy that I put Melina over his wife Mickie James earlier tonight. Mid-South World Heavyweight Tournament Match Charlie Haas (0 points) vs. Rikishi (1 point) In a match that meant nothing but pride, as both men have been eliminated from title competition, it showed in the ring, at least on Rikishi's part. Rikishi won the match with a Rikishi driver, picking up 3 points that will help for ranking purposes, but nothing else. Rating: 42 In-ring Performances: Charlie Haas- 58 Rikishi- 28 I feel bad for Haas. He owned the in-ring performance tonight, but a roll of the dice cost him the victory. I feel like I should rethink my strategy to let the dice decide this entire dynasty, but man it makes it so much easier, and so far only 2 people have complained at how the results have played out. More on this topic later. Rikishi was visibly getting tired towards the end, which doesn't bode well for the future as this was only a 7 minute match. Hmm. Angle- Rikishi Celebrates Rikishi, doing what he does best, tried to send the crowd home happy by celebrating and doing his trademark dancing to end the show. Unfortunately, it was even more of a flop than his match. Rating: 38 Final Show Rating: 45 This show increased our popularity in 10 regions.
