Cedar Rapids Wrestling (CV 97 -> 2004)

Recommended Posts

No big intro or anything, just the very basics then the first show. Wanda Fish, with a ton of money, taking control of an edited cult-sized Cedar Rapids Wrestling just after it's formed. Game year is 2004, in a CV97 database which I autosimmed through 7 years of. CRW has started the CRW Network.


Let's get this going.




Wed Week 1, Mar 2004.

CRW Slam from Laurent Ballroom, sold out crowd of 5000 people.


We open the show with a music video, as footage bought from other companies shows some of our stars in their best light. Johnny Bloodstone traps Jeremy Stone in the Bloodstone Mutilation as BHOTWG fans look on. Alexander Robinson hits a massive superplex, then covers Ryu Kajahara to take the Hinote Dojo All-Japan title. John Maverick locks on the Deadly Silence and taps out T.I.M. to get the 4-3 victory in their famous Iron Man match for the PGHW Historical Japan title. Super Lucha Scott gets an unbelievable amount of airtime for a man his size as he flies off the top rope with a frog splash to land on a prone Tasuku Iesada.


Leper Messiah wraps his massive arms around the huge frame of Colossus; the referee raises the giant's hand three times, and three times it drops, giving the Messiah the XFW World title. At January's Ed Henson Appreciation Night, Tom Gilmore shows incredible power as he lifts Dallas McWade up and drops him with a brainbuster. Wrestling as Da Monsta in PGHW, Art Reed makes Kayin Puro tap to the Dread Lock. In NYCW, Rocky Hardy - then known as Rocky Hotbody - hits Amish Bruiser with a massive running powerslam.


Oliver Kobb pulls off one of the biggest shocks in XFW history, rolling up Leper Messiah to take his XFW World title. In DAVE, Joss Thompson lifts Brett Biggz onto his shoulders, and Kashmir Singh leaps off with a flying clothesline to smash Biggz to the ground. Next up a Philly Pro show, as Phillip Roberts drives Lionheart Lawson's head into the mat with a massive top rope DDT before covering him to defend the Tri-State championship.


As the video finishes, we cut to the ring, where a legend in the sport, Dusty Streets, stands, mic in hand.




DUSTY: Well, well, well. How y'all doing?


The crowd cheer.


DUSTY: I'm Dusty Streets, but you already knew that, right? I'm more than thrilled to be joining you for the first ever Cedar Rapids Wrestling show, and looking forward to commentating on some great action tonight for all our viewers at home with my colleagues Jason Azaria and Danny Jillefski.


And for all those viewers, and for our great crowd here in attendance, I have news for y'all! I'm proud to declare that the first CRW World champion will be crowned in six weeks time at our first ever pay-per-view, CRW April Assault, and that the tournament to start that process will begin RIGHT HERE TONIGHT! There will be two round-robin blocks of four, with the winners of each block facing off at that show in the main event.


In block B, starting next week, we have Oliver Kobb, Alexander Robinson, Philip Roberts and Tom Gilmore! And in block A, starting right here tonight - in mere moments! We have Johnny Bloodstone, who'll main event against Art Reed. But first up, we'll see Kashmir Singh take on John Maverick!


[He's interrupted by music firing up, and Singh himself comes out, mic in hand, speaking to the fans as he walks down the aisle.]




KASHMIR: Wow. This is an absolute honour. I grew up in Mumbai, in the 1980s and 1990s, watching American wrestling on my TV screen. I saw men like Sam Strong, Rip Chord, and this man, Dusty Streets, become household names not just across this country, but also across my own. As a child, I watched it and thought I could never do that. As a teenager, I watched it and thought that just maybe I could do that. As an adult, I watched it, and I knew that I was born to do that.


So five or so years ago, I got on a plane, and flew out to the States. I signed on with SCCW, and started a career which still makes me shiver with excitement every morning when I wake up. A few years later, I made it to DAVE, where I fought with and against some of the best wrestlers alive today. And all of that time, I've been wishing my nieces and nephews in Mumbai could see me. Today, they can. And they get to see me in the ring with a legend. Mr Streets, sir - can I shake your hand?


[streets nods, smiling, and the wrestler rolls into the ring, and enthusiastically does just that.]


DUSTY: Kashmir, it's great to have you on board. Hey, what do you say we get started right now? John Maverick, come on down!


[but before he does, we cut to backstage, where Maverick stands in front of a CRW banner.]




MAVERICK: Once upon a time, they called me The Silent Threat. I didn't want to waste my words on mere fans. Then, after years in CGC, I moved to Japan. I went from fighting in front of the rabble who infest Canadian wrestling crowds, to the puroresu fans who know more about the sport than half the roster here. I became someone who loved to address the crowds, to talk to people I respected. And now I'm back. Here in the USA, the only country on earth to make even Canadian rednecks look intelligent in comparison. So this is the last time I'll speak here. From now on, the Silent Threat will let his wrestling do the talking.




[Cut back to ringside, where Wanda Fish makes her debut, the beautiful woman getting a decent pop as she fires out T-shirts to the fans, waving and smiling, then takes a front row seat.]


OShTT27.jpg vs ZbEVELD.jpg




These two look remarkably good together, and our first ever match is all we could have hoped for in an opener. It's a ten minute sprint which sees Singh get to show off some big moves, and Maverick do well at slowing him down whenever the lighter man seems to be hitting his stride. Eventually, Kashmir scores with a dropkick and runs at the ropes, bouncing off with a picture perfect moonsault - but the crafty Canadian is playing possum, and rolls out of the way. Singh hits the mat hard, and is easy pickings for a Deadly Silence to make him tap out.


[Next up, we have the first ever masked competitor in CRW. He comes out and climbs the turnbuckle to address the fans.]




SLS: Are you as excited to be here as I am, everyone? Let's try this out.


I say Super, you say Lucha! Super!


[The crowd respond.]


Crowd: Lucha!




Crowd: LUCHA!




Crowd: LUCHA!






SLS: Hell yeah, let's go!


xUlTpgr.jpg vs 2MoSM4E.jpg




For anyone who rememembers Super Lucha Scott as Big Smack Scott back in the late 90s, this is an education. The big man's grasp of psychology has improved immeasurably - it's amazing what tours of PGHW, Hinote Dojo and BHOTWG will do - and he leads Erik Strong through a short but fun sprint, hitting some power moves then leaping to the top rope. "SUPER!" he screams to the crowd, who respond "LUCHA!" before he leaps off with a Shooting Lucha Press and hooks the leg for a 3 count.


[Cut to backstage, and Java is in front of that CRW banner.]




JAVA: You know, people look at my face. They see my tattoo, and they think of me as a savage. But it's not the face they should be looking at. If you want to know me, look at my hands.


These are the hands that fought against bullies when I grew up, taunted by people who viewed me as different because I'm Indonesian. These are the hands that gave me sixteen knockouts in a row when I started wrestling, laying waste to my opponents on the indies. And these are the hands that will, in time, be carrying the CRW belt.


So don't be distracted by the tattoo, everyone. Whoever ends up with that title, look at the hands - and get ready for one of them to be the last thing you see before you lose it.


[As Java walks away, the camera moves to a locker room, where Johnny Bloodstone is getting ready.]




BLOODSTONE: The 2001 House of Stone class was hailed on our graduation as the finest collection of wrestlers in the camp's history. Jeremy Stone told us we were the most talented group ever to leave the House. He said that if NOTBPW had still been going, we would have had contracts for as long as we wanted. But of course, North of the Border stopped going back in 1998, along with CGC. We knew when we signed up that there wouldn't be a big name federation in Canada to employ us. And with the kind of wrestlers they employ down in Hollywood, or over in New England, the major American companies were never likely to want to know either. There was just no place for the House of Stone graduates in North America.


We were left with what seemed like two choices. Adapt, or give up. Now when you're trained by the very best, and believe me we WERE trained by the best, I guess it feels like you shouldn't have to adapt. So what did men like Bobby Thomas do? Like Derek Frost? Owen Love? There's a reason you don't recognise those names. They gave up. Oh, they may not have retired. But they carved out a living working as gas station attendants, or in burger bars, or janitors, and pulled the boots on once every month or two.


When you're not only part of the best class in the House of Stone's history, though, but you're the star student of that class, so far ahead of the rest that they could barely see you on your best day, you'd rather die than give up. So what did I do? I crossed the Pacific. I went to Japan. I fought in PGHW. I fought in Burning Hammer. And in months when someone like Love or Frost or Thomas fought one match, I fought twenty-one. I got better, and better, and better. And just when I thought there was nothing for me to come back to in North America, CRW opened up. So here I am. Ready to show the world just why I was top of the class, and to show my fellow students just what they're missing. Because here's the deal, Derek. Owen. Bobby. It's not just talent you need. It's the drive to succeed. And believe me, I have both, in spades.


We're out of the dressing room, and taking up his spot in front of the banner, guitar in hand, is Joss Thompson.




THOMPSON: I'm Joss Thompson. You may not know me now, but that's about to change. You see, there are men who are legends in the field of wrestling. Micky Starr, Dan Stone, and of course our very own Dusty Streets. There are men who are legends in the field of music. Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Prince. And we grow up admiring them.


But there's a difference between me and other young men my age. Someone like Chance Fortune is content to follow in the footsteps of Stone and Streets. Someone like Jason Mraz or Patrick Stump is happy to emulate McCartney or Prince. Me? I want it ALL. You're looking at the first person who will ever be inducted in both the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame AND a Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame. Don't believe me? Wait until you hear me sing. Next week, on CRW Slam.


Back to ringside, for our first tag match.

zA6RUum.jpg and ItyADfK.jpg vs pyewtVj.jpgnrYC63U.jpg


Fairly quick bout here; Idol and Fortune look good early on - the pair have tagged a little on the indies, and show some nice double dropkicks and quick tags in and out to isolate Russell - but then fall foul of Russell's grappling knowledge, as he manages to pull Fortune into the centre of the ring and work his leg over. York is in soon after that, and continues the assault, and it's not long before he's able to lock on a kneebar for the tap out.


We head back to the banner, where The Insane Heat is standing.




18 years ago, I was just like Erik Strong. I was fresh-faced and foolish, trying to make it in the world of wrestling. I have news for you, Erik. The world has no use for the innocent, for the weak.


Instead, the world has nothing but hostility for them. As I learnt. I learnt when I was forced to tap out to bigger, tougher men. I learnt when I was pinned time after time, staring at the ceiling after being battered and bruised. I learnt when I was told there was no place for a stupid child in a man's world.


So I reinvented myself. I put on this face paint, I searched my soul. And you know what I found?


I found DARKNESS. I found the kind of darkness I'd never known existed deep inside myself, and it both terrified me and elated me. I found the kind of darkness a man needs to succeed. I took on a man who'd pinned me six months earlier, who'd thrown me around like a rag doll, and this time, I beat him. I beat him because he was playing by the rules, and I was playing to win. I shoved my fingers into his eyes, I left him clawing his face, and I continued my journey of revenge. Next came a man who made me tap out. I fought him, no holds barred. I beat him so badly, I left him fearing he'd never have children, and this time, he was the one tapping out. And over the years ahead, I embraced that inner darkness, one man at a time, as I made those who had disrespected me pay.


Erik Strong, I have good news for you. In fifteen years of revenge, the darkness has consumed me so completely that it's bursting out of me. It needs a new home. And Erik, I have chosen you. Come to me, and you will be spared the humiliation I faced as an innocent. You won't feel the shame I felt when I was weak. You will be reborn as my first follower. And the darkness will make you strong.


[As he finishes speaking, we go to a video showcasing The Leper Messiah.]




The Messiah hits chokeslam after chokeslam, powerbomb after powerbomb, and makes several men tap out to his huge bear hug.


Then its back to that CRW banner, where this time it's Art Reed with a mic.




I heard Johnny Bloodstone talk earlier, and I gotta say, his memories of the class of 2001 are just the tiniest bit different from mine. Some things we agree on. Yeah, we were the best class the House had ever seen. And I'll even give credit where he was due, people did think of him as the star of that class.


You know why they thought that? Let me tell you three things about Johnny Bloodstone. Firstly, Johnny is very good at mat wrestling. Secondly, Johnny is excellent at submissions. But thirdly, what Johnny is really, really nothing short of world-class at... is [bLEEP] kissing.


If there was a journalist around, Johnny would be their best friend. If there was someone high up in an organisation checking in on us, Johnny would carry their bags. If there was a Stone who needed anything, Johnny would be there faster than you could say "Yes Sir." When it came to the rest of the boys, Johnny wasn't quite so helpful.


So yeah, Johnny, sure, you've had a great start to the career. Yeah, you've fought in SAISHO, in PGHW, in Burning Hammer, and you don't do that unless you're darn good. But I guess what I want to know, Johnny, is when you originally went over to Japan... did they actually know you were a wrestler? Or did Jeremy recommend you as a first-class towel boy?


JFAkx95.jpg vs s4iBtvu.jpg




The towel boy crack appears to have annoyed Bloodstone, and he's immediately out of the gates with punches, only for Reed to dodge and weave around him, constantly keeping out of reach. Reed goes for the right knee of Bloodstone with some quick dives, clipping it and keeping him on the floor, but eventually gets a figure-four attempt reversed and from there Bloodstone is able to take control of the match. Bloodstone Mutilation finishes it, and while it's by no sense a bad match, there's a feeling that as the first ever CRW main event it was something of a disappointment.

CRW World title tournament: Alexander Robinson vs Tom Gilmore- Gilmore must be an absolute monster in the ring at this point

American Machine vs Rocky Hardy- taking the name I know

Rex Reeves vs The Leper Messiah- I smell a freak flash pin to get Rex on the roster and a feud with Leper

CRW World title tournament: Oliver Kobb vs Phillip Roberts.- I'm picking with my heart cause Robert's is great in-ring but he's probably going to lose.


Really enjoyed the first show. Interested to see who else you bring on.

Wed Week 2, Mar 2004.

CRW Slam from Gorski Ballroom, sold out crowd of 5000 people




A video shows the highlights of week 1. John Maverick says "From now on, the Silent Threat will let his wrestling do the talking," then does just that, tapping out Kashmir Singh with the Deadly Silence. Super Lucha Scott hits his incredible Shooting Lucha Press to beat Erik Strong. Java speaks, "Whoever ends up with that title, look at the hands - and get ready for one of them to be the last thing you see before you lose it."


A clip of The Insane Heat's promo is shown. "Erik, I have chosen you... And the darkness will make you strong." Now Joss Thompson's. "You're looking at the first person who will ever be inducted in both the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame AND a Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame. Don't believe me? Wait until you hear me sing."


Bloodstone. "It's not just talent you need. It's the drive to succeed. And believe me, I have both, in spades." And the video ends with him locking on the Bloodstone Mutilation and forcing Art Reed to tap.


We're live with Jazon Azaria, Danny Jillefski, and Dusty Streets, and one of tonight's first two competitors, Phillip Roberts, is already in the ring! He calls for a mic and stars to speak.




ROBERTS: I know people have been talking in front of that cute little banner they put up backstage, but I wanted to look some fans in the eye when I said this.


For years, across America and Japan, I was the man the top stars had on speed dial. They wanted protection, Phillip Roberts was there. They wanted someone taken out, Phillip Roberts would do it for them. They wanted business taken care of without getting their hands dirty themselves, I was their man.


I am no longer that man.


He pauses.


ROBERTS: I wanted to look at the fans out there. I know that many of you have been left disappointed by my actions in the past. I know that you've booed me. I know that you've seen what I've done to competitors you respected, or even loved, and you wanted me to [bLEEP] off and die, in the words of one colourful piece of hate mail I got.


So I had to say something to you.


He smiles widely.


ROBERTS: I loved every goddamn minute of it. Watching you lazy freaks, and your ugly kids, get so invested in some pretty boy, knowing I was going to blast him with a chair before he could get the title he worked so, so hard for. That was nearly as good as the damn money.


Boos rain down on him.


ROBERTS: So when I say I'm no longer that man, don't misunderstand me. The Hired Gun is out of business for one reason, and one reason only. I want something that money can't buy. I want the World title. Firstly, to prove I'm the best guy here. And secondly, because I know how much it will kill you brainless idiots in the crowd to see me hold it up.


Now, come on down, Oliver Kobb.




Kobb is preceded by Wanda Fish, who shoots T-shirts into the crowd, as the announcers talk about her stellar career in wrestling. Is there going to be a women's division formed any time soon, they wonder? She smiles, and takes a seat at ringside.




As Kobb walks down the aisle, the big screen lights up with a pre-recorded promo. He's at Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and we see him hitting three home runs in succession before he puts the bat down and turns to face the camera.


KOBB: Sorry to keep you waiting, guys, but I was on a hot streak, you know?


And, speaking about hot streaks, I can't wait to start one in CRW. For those who don't know me - and I have to believe that's pretty much everybody out there - I'm Oliver Kobb. I've been wrestling all of two years, I've never been on TV before, so you have to believe that when I was told I'd be taking part in the World title tournament, I was so excited you'd have thought the Diamondbacks had just won the World Series! I'm in a block with three guys who have a lot more experience than me, and I know that I'll be seen as having about as much chance as the Boston Red Sox do of winning it all this year. Sorry, Sox fans. But write me off all you want. People have been doing that ever since I played in Little League. And somehow, I keep proving them wrong.


X9qvDK4.jpg vs TR3NpH1.jpg




As the video ends, Kobb climbs to the second turnbuckle and raises his arms, basking in the cheers of the fans. But it's a short-lived moment of happiness, as Roberts leaps up behind him and drives him into the mat with a German suplex! Cover is made by the former Hired Gun, and it seems like we're going to get the quickest win so far in CRW as Kobb looks out of it, but somehow kicks out on two and nine tenths. From there, Roberts is relentless, hitting high impact slams and suplexes for several minutes, until Kobb manages to roll out of the ring to the relative safety of the floor for a breather. Staggering to the guardrail, he rests on it for a minute, and as the older wrestler climbs down and starts to follow him, the crowd is willing the baseball fanatic to get things going. Roberts picks up a chair and menacingly walks over to his opponent, but the referee screams at him that he'll be disqualified if he uses it, and he eventually puts it down. Charging at Kobb, he goes for a running knee, only for Kobb to dive out of the way at the last minute and for Roberts to slam his kneecap full force into the metal rail. This gives Kobb something of a chance to make a comeback, and he drags Roberts into the ring, where he gets to show off some offense, including a nice big splash for two and a half. Roberts eventually gets control again with an eye gouge behind the ref's back, but when he goes for another slam, Kobb manages to small package him, and gets the massive upset win, much to the crowd's delight!




Backstage, Wanda Fish is with Erik Strong.


FISH: Erik, we're all dying to hear your reaction to the strange offer you got from The Insane Heat last week. Do you have something to say to him?


ERIK: I've been called many things so far in my short career. The ultimate underdog. The boy in a man's world. The fan in there with the wrestlers. And they're the relatively pleasant ones. I've been called a runt, a geek, a scrawny kid, and stuff I can't repeat on TV. But you know what? I accept some of those things. I AM an underdog. Compared to some of the guys twice my age, I am a boy. But just because people don't think I can win, that doesn't mean they're right. I'm going to go out there, give it my best shot, and surprise them ALL.


So Insane Heat? Thanks for the offer, but as far as I'm concerned, you can keep your darkness. Erik Strong is all about the light.


Back in the ring, there's a roadie setting up for Joss Thompson's concert. As he finishes, Thompson swaggers out, guitar in hand.




THOMPSON: Arizona, it's great to be here! I'm excited to be playing live, for the first time, my newest song, On Top Of The World.


He starts a riff, but it lasts only a few seconds before a figure jumps out of the crowd and attacks him from behind!




STREETS: That's EMM Moe!


Moe hits his Flaming Impact on Thompson, leaving the rock star groaning on the mat, while his attacker picks up a mic.


EMM Moe: Rock music is a brainwashing tool of the government, and of the corporations. You can stand there booing me, but you should be thanking me for not letting you expose yourself to more of that. Who knows what you could have been made to do?


Rolling to the outside, he heads to the back, as Thompson's roadie tries to revive him.


AZARIA: I've seen a lot of things in wrestling, but that was bizarre.


Next up,


14a5u5d.jpg vs 9bq5i4j.jpg




Reeves looks initially excited to have a chance of earning a full contract here, but it takes just a couple of hard rights from the big brute to change his facial expression completely. This one is over in just a couple of minutes, Messiah tossing his opponent around like a rag doll before locking on that huge bear hug for the submission victory.


Post-match, though, Messiah hasn't finished, and brutalises Reeves with not one, not two, but three powerbombs. Finally, he leaves the younger man's broken body lying on the mat, and heads to the back.


Backstage, we go to Alexander Robinson, in front of the banner.




ROBINSON: You know something, I've been hearing about Tom Gilmore being a can't miss prospect for quite some time. Three years ago, at a Canadian indie show, I fought him in a tag match, and I was told pre-show - keep an eye on this guy. He's going to be a big star any day now.


Two years ago, I took him on at a Halloween show. Pre-match, the word in the back was that soon, Tom Gilmore was going to be huge. And yet somehow, I was the one with my hand raised at the end, while he screamed in pain after tapping out to my rear naked choke.


Last year, at the Ed Henson Appreciation Night, I teamed with him and we beat John Maverick and Dallas McWade. Dan Stone, the legend himself, spoke to me beforehand. "Can't wait to see you and Gilmore team up," he said. "He's gonna be big, you know."


But you know something, Tom? Three years ago, you were very good. Two years ago, you were still very good. Last year, you were - you guessed it - very good.


But 'very good' isn't good enough for true stardom, Tom. All these people remembering what a 'very good' rookie you were haven't noticed one simple thing. You've peaked. Oh, you may not realise it. People like Stone sure don't realise it. But the people in charge do. What is it, two title shots in seven years? They don't trust you, Tom. They know you're not a guy who's good enough to win gold. But YOU should trust ME, you are never going to be any better than you were two years ago. And even then, you couldn't beat me.


So here's the question, Tom. What's it like being a 'can't miss prospect' who, well, missed?


As Robinson walks off, he's replaced in front of the banner by Rocky Hardy.




HARDY: I'm Rocky Hardy, and I'm here to show you out of shape losers what a real man looks like, and give your women the time of their life. Oh, and to kick the ass of some guy named...


He peers at his forearm, where he's scribble a name in marker pen.


Amelia McSpleen? Ammonia Milkshake?


CAMERAMAN: American Machine.


HARDY: Like I care, bud. The opponent isn't important to me. I'm here to showcase these muscles, and my skills. Ladies, if you want to carry this party on after the show, here's what to do. Give your husband twenty dollars to go take care of himself at a strip club or something. Meet me outside the stage door. And I'll choose one of you to get the biggest treat they can imagine.


He looks down pointedly.


And believe me, I DO mean biggest.


9XE5J3q.jpg vs qnnsuGN.jpg




With American Machine in the ring already, Hardy takes his time walking down, talking to various ladies in the front row. A couple seems interested, but more are disgusted by his cheap pick-up lines, and when he asks a pink-haired girl a question which the camera thankfully doesn't quite catch, she responds by slapping him in the face. Hardy looks incensed, but before he can respond, he's wiped out by a plancha from Machine - showing a degree of agility that few would expect from the big man, even if it's hardly a textbook example of the move - and this match is underway!


While Machine hit hard with that move, he also seemed to land awkwardly, and the slightly smaller Hardy actually takes control here, peppering his opponent with hard rights before throwing him into the ring. The crowd are not liking this at all - particularly Hardy's pink-haired target and her friend - and he soaks in their boos, although this gives Machine time to recover a little and club him from behind as he taunts the audience. Machine gets a brief hope segment, but when he lifts Hardy up for a powerslam, his opponent slides down his back and shoves him into the turnbuckles, then follows up with a brutal knee to the back before slamming his head into the turnbuckles ten times as the crowd refuse to count along, however much Hardy yells at them to. From there, the rookie is easy pickings, falling victim to a Hard Climax, Hardy's devastating uranage.


Tom Gilmore is backstage, in front of the CRW banner. He has a wide smile on his face.




GILMORE: Alex, Alex, Alex. I spent all week trying to work out how you'd strategise to beat me, but making me laugh so much that I'm still trying to calm myself down enough to go out there and wrestle? Props to you, that's more imaginative than I ever thought you could be.


You talk about how I'm a 'can't miss prospect who missed'? You talk about my lack of title shots?


He shrugs.


GILMORE: I'm a patient man, Alex. I fully intend on holding a LOT of gold in my career. But there's no need to rush things. I've never been someone who's screaming and shouting about how it's my time for a title match right now. Those decisions are for other people to make. I can't control them. The one thing I can control is myself. So I've spent years striving to be the best I can be. My body has become my temple. My brain has become my weapon. I've stepped into the ring with dozens of the best wrestlers in the world, and whether you noticed it or not, I've learnt from each and every one of them.


And now, someone made that decision for me. Someone decided that it's my time to take part in a title tournament. It's time to prove them right. So, talk as much as you like about how I haven't got better over the last two years, Alex. I'm about to show you I have.


uo6BdhI.jpg vs GJkRLSx.jpg




Considering both men are known for their technical prowess, this starts off as something of a slugfest, Robinson wanting to stand and bang against the younger man and Gilmore being happy to match him. The way that Tom fights here suggests that Robinson's critique earlier in the show may have annoyed him more than he just claimed in that promo, and he loses momentum when he goes for a short-arm clothesline, only for Alexander to duck it and hit a side suplex on him. From there, it transitions to a match resembling more what we'd have expected from this pair, with Robinson working over his opponent with wear down holds and submission attempts, and Gilmore doing enough to stop him gaining a real advantage, as well as getting a few close calls of his own - notably when he manages to get on a Boston crab; Robinson looks like he's close to tapping but just makes it to the rope.


The end comes, however, when Robinson goes for the rear naked choke. It's not a move he uses often, Azaria informs us, and perhaps he's trying to reinforce his message about Gilmore being no better than he was two years ago - this is the hold he forced Tom to tap out to in their only singles match to date. For a minute, he looks as if he's got it cinched in, but Gilmore is fighting hard, and manages a superb counter as he rolls backwards into a bridge! Robinson's shoulders are down, and the ref makes the count - one, two... Robinson kicks out just in time! But it's a short-lived reprieve, as Gilmore takes advantage of Robinson's prone position to slide in and lock on an STF, forcing Robinson to tap out!

CRW Slam Wednesday Week 3 March preview


The Irvine Hall hosts the action as CRW head to the Mid-South for the next edition of Slam!


More title tournament action with Johnny Bloodstone aiming to follow up his win over Art Reed by beating Kashmir Singh, who tapped out to John Maverick, while Reed and Maverick collide in the other bout in that block.


Joss Thompson gets the chance to gain revenge on EMM Moe for the interruption to his concert last week, while Erik Strong has turned down the darkness offered to him by The Insane Heat. He may regret it, against a man the size of Java you could argue he'd want all the help he can get!


Also, The Insane Heat will respond to Strong, while rumour has it The Leper Messiah has a new manager, who'll reveal himself at the show!


Prediction Key:


CRW World title tournament: Kashmir Singh vs Johnny Bloodstone

Joss Thompson vs EMM Moe

Java vs Erik Strong

CRW World title tournament: Art Reed vs John Maverick

Bonus: Who will The Leper Messiah's new manager be?


Thanks to neslo024 for predicting show 1; he went 1/4. (I'm expecting predictions to be tough early on due to the big changes over the past 7 years!)

A music video shows the highlights of last week.</p><p> </p><p>

Phillip Roberts speaks. "I wanted to look at the fans out there. I know that many of you have been left disappointed by my actions in the past... You wanted me to [bLEEP] off and die... I loved every goddamn minute of it." Oliver Kobb. "Write me off all you want. People have been doing that ever since I played in Little League. And somehow, I keep proving them wrong." Kobb does just that, small packaging Roberts for the win! </p><p> </p><p>

Erik Strong: "You can keep your darkness. Erik Strong is all about the light."</p><p> </p><p>

Joss Thompson starts to play his guitar, only to be blindsided by EMM Moe!</p><p> </p><p>

Leper Messiah destroys Reeves, locking on the bear hug for the submission then hitting three huge powerbombs after Rex submitted. </p><p> </p><p>

Rocky Hardy pins American Machine after the Hard Climax uranage.</p><p> </p><p>

Alex Robinson asks Tom Gilmore "So here's the question, Tom. What's it like being a 'can't miss prospect' who, well, missed?" Gilmore responds "So, talk as much as you like about how I haven't got better over the last two years, Alex. I'm about to show you I have."</p><p> </p><p>

And the video ends with Gilmore hooking an STF on and making Robinson tap out!</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="s4iBtvu.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/s4iBtvu.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Backstage, Art Reed is in front of the CRW banner. </p><p> </p><p>

My career has not been one of unquestioned success. As I said a few weeks ago, rightly or wrongly, it was Johnny Bloodstone voted most likely to make it from that House of Stone class. And Johnny, no question about it, two weeks ago you were the better man. You made me tap, clean, in the centre of the ring.</p><p> </p><p>

But you know something? I'll bounce back. I always do. When I originally applied for the House of Stone, I wasn't even accepted. Dan and Jeremy didn't see me as someone with a future. So I worked hard, I trained, I got Sam Keith to teach me The Dread Lock, and I reapplied, and got accepted. In 2001, I got the chance to tour with SAISHO. I fought four singles matches, couldn't get the win in any of them, and somehow ended up being beaten by someone calling himself Snarf The Evil Clown. I was told I'd never be wanted in SAISHO again, which proved to be acccurate. You know what I did? I worked hard, I trained, and I got picked up by PGHW for a tour. And that tour went pretty well for me. I beat Kayin Puro, I beat the great Wael Hossam, I pinned Dino Maldini so many times I spent more time lying on top of him than his wife did! And for reasons that, I have to be honest, remain unclear to me, I was told 'Actually, we don't want you back. You're not what Pride Glory Honor Wrestling needs right now.'</p><p> </p><p>

So what did I do? I picked myself up again. I worked hard, I trained even more, and I got myself a gig here in CRW. Every time I've failed in my career, I've bounced back to bigger, better things. I went from a nobody to a House of Stone grad. From the House of Stone to SAISHO. From SAISHO to PGHW. And from PGHW to CRW, about to become the hottest federation in America. That's the difference between you and me, Johnny. In your life, with people paving the way for you at every opportunity, you've never failed. Well, good for you. But some day - soon - you will. And let's see if you can bounce back when it happens. </p><p> </p><p>

As Reed walks out to the ring, we go to The Insane Heat, in a dressing room so dark we can barely make out his face. </p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="OOm1ent.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/OOm1ent.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

HEAT: Erik Strong. Two weeks ago, I told you the darkness was coming for you. Last week, you said that you didn't want to accept my offer.</p><p> </p><p>

In the way the weak and the foolish always do, Erik, you misunderstand. When a thug holds a knife to your throat in a dark alley, is he offering to stab you? When a shark swims up to a bleeding man, is he offering to save him? When a vampire sees a girl with her neck exposed, is he offering to bite her? </p><p> </p><p>

Of course not. They're doing what comes naturally to them. It's pointless for them to resist their urges. And what comes naturally to the darkness inside me is to find a new host. Because there's too much of it, you see. Even for someone like me, who loves the darkness. So Erik, you can accept. Or you can resist. But either way, the darkness will take you.</p><p> </p><p>

Back to the ring, where we're about to see our first in-ring action of the night.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="s4iBtvu.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/s4iBtvu.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /> vs <img alt="ZbEVELD.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/ZbEVELD.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>ART REED vs JOHN MAVERICK</strong></p></div><p></p><p>

These two technicians go at it in a methodical fashion, with Maverick in particular trying to slow things down by ducking and diving out of the way of Reed whenever Art tries to strike. Reed starts to get careless, going for bigger moves, and while he scores with a couple of brutal head kicks he's also leaving himself wide open far too often against the wily veteran. Eventually, Mav is able to take his opponent to the mat with a single leg takedown, and goes on to get the submission victory with a Boston Crab.</p><p> </p><p>

Back to the banner, where Alexander Robinson is greeted by Wanda Fish.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="uo6BdhI.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/uo6BdhI.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="23R1WOm.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/23R1WOm.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

ROBINSON: Well, well, well, if it isn't Wanda Fish. Wanda, I'm Alex Robinson, and it's an absolute pleasure to meet you.</p><p> </p><p>

Wanda laughs.</p><p> </p><p>

FISH: I know who you are, Mr Robinson. I would be a lousy backstage interviewer if I didn't know who one of the stars commpeting for the World title is!</p><p> </p><p>

He laughs in turn.</p><p> </p><p>

ROBINSON: Wanda, no disrespect, but I'm struggling to get my head around the idea of you being a backstage interviewer at all. You see, as far as I can see, the people here at CRW needed someone to talk to guys, and look good firing T-shirts. And while I am certainly not denying for a moment that you look damn fine shooting T-shirts, and I would never say you'd make a lousy backstage interviewer, I have to wonder, why you? </p><p> </p><p>

She looks confused.</p><p> </p><p>

ROBINSON: Because when there are dozens of people who could do this sort of job, and many of them would kill for the chance to be live on TV showing their stuff, I guess I don't see why they got the BEST wrestler in AAA history. Someone who's toured Japan with 5SSW SEVEN times. Someone who's spent years not firing T-shirts, but firing rockets up the [bleeps] of tag partners like Black Widow and turning them from promising youngsters to great wrestlers. What I'm saying is, please tell me they're not going to spend the prime years of your life wasting you like this? Please say you're going to be the centrepiece of a women's division they just haven't announced yet.</p><p> </p><p>

Wanda smiles. </p><p> </p><p>

FISH: Wow, you really are a fan of mine, aren't you?</p><p> </p><p>

Alex nods.</p><p> </p><p>

FISH: I've been told a women's division is under consideration, and of course, I'd love it if I got the chance to wrestle here. Maybe if you win the world belt, you could raise it with the brass?</p><p> </p><p>

Alex nods again.</p><p> </p><p>

ROBINSON: When I become champion, Wanda, you have my word I'll do just that.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="Esrqpux.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/Esrqpux.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="zA6RUum.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/zA6RUum.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><p>


Camera cuts to Joss Thompson's dressing room, and finds Brendan Idol wandering in.</p><p> </p><p>

IDOL: Hey, Joss! </p><p> </p><p>

THOMPSON: What do you want, kid? I'm busy.</p><p> </p><p>

IDOL: Sorry, Joss. But I'm a big. big fan. I've been listening to you on Pandora. I was so sad that we didn't get to hear you last week.</p><p> </p><p>

Thompson grunts. </p><p> </p><p>

THOMPSON: Yeah, well, I'm about to go out there and get a little revenge for that. So while it's great to meet a fan, if you'll excuse me...</p><p> </p><p>

IDOL: Sorry! I didn't mean to get in your way. But I just wanted to ask you one question...</p><p> </p><p>

Thompson looks at him expectantly.</p><p> </p><p>

IDOL: Are you interested in a backing singer? It would be so great to sing with you!</p><p> </p><p>

Joss shakes his head.</p><p> </p><p>

THOMPSON: Sorry, kid. Joss Thompson is very much a solo artist.</p><p> </p><p>

Idol looks crestfallen, as Thompson walks off. </p><p> </p><p>

In the ring now, for our next match.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="xUlTpgr.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/xUlTpgr.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /> vs <img alt="Yn8XyCb.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/Yn8XyCb.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><p> </p><p>

<strong>ERIK STRONG vs JAVA</strong></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

The in-ring debut for the big Indonesian brawler has been much anticipated, and he shows off some good power moves here, rag dolling Strong, but somehow the pair don't really connect. There's more blown spots than you could begin to imagine, especially given the match lasts only three minutes, but the pair at least get Java's palm strike finisher over well as Strong sells it as if he's had a heart attack.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="OOm1ent.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/OOm1ent.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="xUlTpgr.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/xUlTpgr.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Post-match, Java leaves, while The Insane Heat heads down to ringside! Diving into the ring, he grabs the still-KO'd Strong, and carries him to the back, as the commentators sell their disgust here. Where's security when you need them?!</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="9bq5i4j.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/9bq5i4j.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="TR3NpH1.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/TR3NpH1.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="uo6BdhI.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/uo6BdhI.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><p>


Dusty Streets announces we're getting reports of a disturbance backstage, and we cut to footage of The Leper Messiah hurling Oliver Kobb into a row of lockers. The Messiah charges in with a big boot, but before he can do further damage, Alexander Robinson leaps on him from behind, pulling him away. Messiah is all set to attack Robinson too, until security flood the room - Alex and Oliver clearly luckier than Strong - and separate the competitors.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="Esrqpux.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/Esrqpux.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="eHhKwUR.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/eHhKwUR.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><p> </p><p>

<strong>JOSS THOMPSON vs EMM MOE</strong></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

The crowd is firmly behind Thompson here, and cheer as he opens with a flurry of hard kicks and strikes. Moe plays a totally cowardly heel, begging off and frantically apologising to Joss, before popping him with a cheap shot when the ref's not looking. From there, Moe is like a drowning man, flailing frantically to try and get any sort of hold on the match - an eye gouge doesn't hold Thompson off for long, neither does a low blow, and eventually he seems happy to take the count-out loss, abandoning the ring once he's hit the rock star with a knee to the face. Thompson has other ideas, though, and charges down the aisle, scaring Moe to the point that he falls over his feet trying to get away from him. Joss screams with glee, and, grabbing a handful of Moe's trunks, drags him back to the ring, before rolling him in and eventually hitting the Clean Cutter for the victory. </p><p> </p><p>

This pair look VERY good together, by the way.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="9bq5i4j.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/9bq5i4j.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="4YuASog.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/4YuASog.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Back to backstage, and The Leper Messiah is in front of the CRW banner - but rather than being by himself, he's accompanied by a CRW debutant. Judging by the excitement from the crowd when they see him on the big screen, there are a decent amount of SCCW fans in the venue. </p><p> </p><p>

That's right, Shane Sneer is in the house!</p><p> </p><p>

SNEER: I asked the big brass here in CRW why my client isn't in the round robin tournament to decide the first World champion. The answer I got? He doesn't look like their idea of a wrestler. They want someone more classic for the first champion. Someone the fans can see as a true athlete.</p><p> </p><p>

Well, you know something? When The Leper Messiah won the USPW World title, did he look like a wrestler then? I guess they don't think he did, but he sure did to me. When he won the XFW World title not once, not twice, not three times, but FOUR times, did he look like a wrestler then? He sure as heck did from where I was standing. And when he takes his rightful place in a title match against whoever ends the round robin tournament as the first champion, and he squeezes them so hard that they are BEGGING him to take the belt, take the winner's purse, take whatever he wants just please, please don't break their back. He'll darn sure look like a wrestler then, believe me.</p><p> </p><p>

So, to the brass here. Enjoy your classic-looking champion. Because they'll be the only one you have, trust me. When The Leper Messiah gets his hands on the belt, he's not letting go. </p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="2MoSM4E.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/2MoSM4E.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="OOm1ent.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/OOm1ent.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="xUlTpgr.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/xUlTpgr.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

As Sneer finishes speaking, we hear a hammering on a door, and the cameraman eagerly heads off to find the source of the noise. We see Super Lucha Scott pounding his fist against a door yelling "Open up in there!" and getting no response. Shrugging, the masked man takes a couple of steps backwards, starts a run, and simply boots the door as hard as he can, causing it to fly off its hinges.</p><p> </p><p>

Inside the room, we see a dazed-looking Erik Strong sitting on a chair, as The Insane Heat cackles maniacally. His laughter comes to a halt as Scott confronts him. "Hey, punk. Didn't anyone ever tell you no means no?" For emphasis, Scott blasts Heat with a couple of hard rights then simply throws him into the corner of the room, before grabbing Strong and helping him out of the door.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="6nzuSLw.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/6nzuSLw.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Back to the ring, and Kashmir Singh enters through an adoring crowd, high-fiving people along the way. </p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p></p><img alt="6nzuSLw.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/6nzuSLw.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><strong> vs </strong><img alt="JFAkx95.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/JFAkx95.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

KASHMIR SINGH vs JOHNNY BLOODSTONE</strong></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

This is a technical showcase for these two, with the pair feeling each other out early on, and Bloodstone getting the early advantage as he takes his opponent down and works over his leg with painful holds. Singh is able to come back though, using the same figure four reversal which Bloodstone himself used against Art Reed in our first main event two weeks ago. From there, Kashmir comes close on several occasions, much to the fans' delight, and he's able to get Bloodstone's shoulders to the mat three times but each time Johnny kicks out with milliseconds to spare. As the match goes on, the punishment Singh took earlier on in the bout starts to take its toll, and he eventually stumbles while climing the turnbuckles, losing out on a little too much time. Bloodstone takes full advantage, leaping up and hitting a huge superplex to bring him back into the ring, before hooking the leg for the three count.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="ZbEVELD.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/ZbEVELD.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="JFAkx95.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/JFAkx95.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Post-match, Azaria points out that with both John Maverick and Johnny Bloodstone on 2 wins each, and Reed and Singh on 0, the winner of the main event in two weeks' time will be going to April Assault to fight for the World title! And as he states this, John Maverick himself appears on the entrance ramp, locking eyes with Bloodstone. The pair stare at each other, before Maverick raises his hands and give a solitary clap, before walking off.</p><p> </p><p>

<p>We're in the Tri-State's McGaw Arena for week 4 of CRW Slam!</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>CRW Slam Wednesday Week 4 March preview</strong></p></div><p></p><p> </p><p>

Block B of the round robin tournament for the World title match at April Assault continues, with Tom Gilmore taking on Philip Roberts, and Oliver Kobb going against Alexander Robinson - who last week saved him from a brutal assault by Leper Messiah.</p><p> </p><p>

Slim V and Hard-1 will get the chance to earn a spot on the roster, as they take on The Insane Heat and his new follower, Joshua Taylor. Taylor seems to have come out of nowhere to join this match, as Heat has been trying to get Erik Strong to submit to the darkness - but Super Lucha Scott interfered with that plan last time around.</p><p> </p><p>

Chance Fortune goes up against the massive Java. And Dusty Streets will be making a huge announcement on behalf of the CRW board of directors!</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>Prediction Key:</strong></p></div><p></p><p>

CRW World title tournament: Oliver Kobb vs Alexander Robinson</p><p>

The Insane Heat/Joshua Taylor vs Slim V/Hard-1</p><p>

Enjoyed the show. Like the mix of eras and styles.</p>

Wed Week 4, Mar 2004.

CRW Slam from McGaw Arena, sold out crowd of 5000 people




After the intro video, we go to the ring, where Dusty Streets is standing, mic in hand.


As y'all know, in a few weeks time, we have ourselves the finals of the World title tournament, taking place at April Assault. Either John Maverick or Johnny Bloodstone will go up against one of the four men in action in Block B tonight, and I'm just as excited as you guys to see who the winner is. But while we're crowning a World champion that night, we're not JUST crowning a World champion.


No, in addition, we are crowning the first ever holder of this title.




Dusty calls to Wanda Fish, who moves from her ringside seat to get a briefcase from the commentary table, and brings it into the ring with her. Streets smiles, thanks her, and opens it to display a gold belt with silver lightning strikes on it as she walks back down the aisle to the backstage area.


DUSTY: This here is the CRW Sprint title, and as the name suggests, you gotta be FAST to win this one. We figured we'd do something a little different here, and challenge our stars to try and get their hands on this and hold onto it. Rules are simple - not only is there no champion's advantage, but all matches are 15 minute time-limits, and in the event of a draw the belt will be held up. That's right, to hold onto this, you're going to have to win a lot of matches in very little time, and you're going to have to do it at LEAST once every two weeks.


To see who would be the first champion, we put the names of every wrestler in the company who's not involved in the World Title tournament in a hat. Six guys got chosen, and will face each other in singles matches over the next 3 weeks, with a triple threat match at April Assault to crown the first champion. Next week, Joss Thompson will take on Rocky Hardy. The week prior to April Assault, Erik Strong will go against Joshua Taylor. But first up, right here tonight, Chance Fortune against Java!


Backstage, Oliver Kobb is in front of the CRW banner.




KOBB: March is my favourite time of the year, you know. The weather is perfect. Spring Training is in full swing. And this year, yours truly is joint top of block B of the World title tournament. Sure, I know it's only after one match. Sure, I know a lot of people think I don't have what it takes to go against Tom Gilmore in a few weeks, and Alexander Robinson tonight. But I also know that last year, nearly everyone wrote off the Marlins against the Yankees. Underdog stories can come true, guys. And I'm about to prove it.




Wanda Fish heads back out, shooting T-shirts into the crowd, before Alex Robinson's entrance. As Robinson enters, instead of heading straight to the ring, he goes to the front row to talk to her.


ALEX: Wanda, Wanda, Wanda.


Alex sighs.


ALEX: If being a backstage interviewer is beneath you, then THIS gig? Shooting T-shirts? Come on.


WANDA: Alex, I'm just happy to be here. But I'd be happier if we had a women's division, admittedly.


ALEX: Wanda, as soon as I am champion here, believe me it'll be the top of my list of things to push for.


Wanda smiles.


WANDA: Thank you, Alex.


The pair touch hands briefly, before they're interrupted by a cough from Oliver Kobb.


OLIVER: Alex, I'm 100% behind you when it comes to a women's division - Wanda, I'm a big fan of yours too - but, maybe, can we concentrate on OUR match?


And with that, it's on.


TR3NpH1.jpg vs uo6BdhI.jpg



Kobb is on fire early on with lots of strong strikes, but Robinson slows things down and is able to take control. He keeps the baseball fan down for a fair while, choking off any hope spots, and eventually gets the win with a figure four leglock.




Backstage, The Insane Heat and Joshua Taylor stand in front of the CRW banner.


HEAT: Erik Strong! Look at this man here, who has let the darkness take him.


Taylor sways slightly as Heat talks.


HEAT: This is what awaited you, until you turned me down. This is what would be your right, if Super Lucha Scott hadn't stuck his big nose in. But this still CAN be yours. There's enough darkness for you both, Erik...


OOm1ent.jpgoLqHRmV.jpg vs J1Lg8M8.jpgI9WyOTY.jpg




The two rookies are looking to impress here, but there's little chance of that, even with Taylor looking slightly confused at what's going on. The Heat barks instructions and him and between the pair of them they isolate Slim V, forcing him to take a huge amount of punishment, before finishing him off with a massive double vertical suplex.


Back to the banner, where Phillip Roberts stands.




ROBERTS: You know, my daddy had a saying. A man is defined by the mistakes he made.


I think about that a lot. Sure, I’ve made mistakes. Hasn’t everyone? As a teenage boy, I grabbed a baseball bat, smashed someone in the face, broke his nose with that hit before punching out two of his teeth, just because I didn’t like the way he spoke about me. Some might say I overreacted.


For the last few years, I sacrificed opportunities in my career to work for hire instead. I turned down the chance to compete in big money PPV matches because working as a champion’s enforcer paid better. Some might say I got my priorities wrong.


And just two weeks ago, right here, I lost to a guy I was confident I could beat. I thought that Oliver Kobb, with his head full of baseball, would be no match for me. I let my guard down, and got pinned. Some might say I wasn’t taking him seriously enough.


And they’d be right.


But you know something? My daddy was only partly right. Sure, some people are defined by the mistakes they make. But me? I’m defined by the fact I never make the same mistake twice. Tom Gilmore, I’m taking this match very seriously.


He smiles slightly.


ROBERTS: Sucks to be you.




Elsewhere backstage, Java is attacking a punching bag with vigor. After a particularly hard hit, he turns to the camera.


JAVA: So, Chance Fortune. Appropriate enough that a name like that, you got picked in the lottery. But if you think that's good luck, you're mistaken, Chance. Because you're stepping into the ring with these hands.


He raises his right hand to the camera.


JAVA: And this palm will be the last thing you see before I knock you out.


ItyADfK.jpg vs Yn8XyCb.jpg




The South California native is eager to show off to the fans here, and he peppers Java with kicks, including a flashy enziguri and a springboard missile dropkick to the outside after the big Indonesian staggers through the ropes and ends up on the floor. There's a growing sense of excitement from the crowd as they seem to think he has a chance of pulling off what would be a huge upset, but after he flies to the outside once more, he gets caught in mid-air by Java and steamrolled into a ringpost as Java holds him tightly in his giant arms. Back to the ring, and a minute or two later, a palm strike finishes for Java.


Back to the banner, where we're about to hear from Tom Gilmore




GILMORE: As I said two weeks ago to Alexander Robinson, someone finally decided it was my time to compete in a title tournament, and I'm going to prove them right. That journey started when I beat Robinson, it will continue tonight when I beat Phillip Roberts, and then in a few weeks' time, after going through Oliver Kobb, it will end with me beating either Maverick or Bloodstone to claim the gold. I state this not out of arrogance, but out of confidence. It will happen. Why?


He takes a deep breath.


GILMORE: Because my body is my temple. My brain is my weapon. And this is my time to shine!


GJkRLSx.jpg vs X9qvDK4.jpg




Strong technical competition here, with lots and lots of reversals and counters right from the get-go. Gilmore is faster than Roberts, but the experienced veteran is wily, and stops him getting any momentum going when he does try to speed things up. Gilmore may think it's his time to shine, but Phillip Roberts has a different view on things, and locks on the R.C.T. for a tap out victory to leave group B level at 1 win apiece for all 4 competitors!

Neslo gets 2/4 - thanks for predicting!


We're in the Huntsville Fairground in the South East for the first April edition of CRW Slam!


CRW Slam Wednesday Week 1 April preview

Two of Canada's finest collide in our main event, as John Maverick and Johnny Bloodstone go one on one. With both men on 2 wins out of 2, the prize is a place in the final of the World title tournament at April Assault!


Having much less luck, Art Reed and Kashmir Singh are both 0 for 2 in the tournament. Which one of them will get back to winning ways here?


Super Lucha Scott recently rescued Erik Strong from The Insane Heat and has offered to keep an eye on the youngster. The strange pairing will take on MMA vets Billy Russell and Willie York.


And in our second qualifier for the Spring title match, Joss Thompson goes against Rocky Hardy!


Prediction Key:

CRW World title tournament: Art Reed vs Kashmir Singh

Eric Strong and Super Lucha Scott vs Billy and Willie

I've been wanting to get back to this as I have a ton of shows done but I'm really struggling to write certain characters. Then I read the first 20 pages or so of James Casey's AMAZING WCW: Dangerous Territory dynasty and I figured maybe that write-up style might be worth 'borrowing', with a segment of the night and brief stuff on other things. I'm going to give it a try, anyway...



CRW Slam Wednesday Week 1 April

Segment of the Night:


Wanda Fish catches up with Johnny Bloodstone in front of the CRW banner.


FISH: Johnny, you have the chance to make it to the first CRW World title match if you can win tonight. How are you feeling?


BLOODSTONE: How do you think I'm feeling, Wanda? I've shown everyone who doubted me just why I'm the biggest threat in CRW. First, I took care of my fellow House of Stone graduate, Art Reed, and made him scream for mercy. Then, I slammed Kashmir Singh into the mat so hard he couldn't kick out. Next up, John Maverick. I have a lot of respect for John. Plenty of people say he's Canada's second best technical wrestler. But when the second best collides with the best, you know what that makes them?


Fish shakes her head.


BLOODSTONE: The worst. John, I think you'll beat a lot of people in CRW. You just won't get your hands on MY title.

Show notes:


A recap video hyped the tourney so far, before Art Reed and Kashmir Singh each got promo time vowing to get their first win.


Singh was the guy who delivered on that promise, beating Reed in a spirited encounter with the Kashmir Kutter.


Leper Messiah annihilated three jobbers who just seemed to be in the way backstage.


After Fish interviewed Bloodstone, the camera headed to Joss Thompson's dressing room, where he found his prized guitar missing. Attempts by Brendan Idol to sympathise with him didn't seem to cheer him up.


Super Lucha Scott taught Erik Strong how to play to the crowd, to mixed reactions. The pair then picked up a good win, beating Billy and Willie via a Strong Sault on York.


Sneer hyped Leper Messiah as the most destructive force in all of CRW.


Joss Thompson beat Rocky Hardy, therefore qualifying for the Sprint title match. Thompson shows an unusual amount of aggression, clearly still upset about his missing guitar.


And in the main, John Maverick makes Johnny Bloodstone eat his words about being the best technical wrestler in the world today, forcing his fellow Canadian to tap out to the Deadly Silence!

CRW Slam Wednesday Week 2 April


Segment of the Night:



[Pre-recorded segment in a local gym, where Java is speaking to five wrestlers from developmental federation Cedar Rapids Future Stars.]


Okay, guys. Line up, and come at me one at a time. Deal is, hit me in the face, and you win $500. Take me down to the mat, and you win $500. Sounds easy, right?


Java smiles grimly as they nod.


JAVA: Don't count on it.


Java turns around to start blasting away at a punching bag. Keith Vegas is first in line, and with lots of eagerness, but little forethought, charges at the big man. Java is so busy with the punching bag that he barely seems to notice the intrusion, and Vegas gets right up to him, until he's suddenly greeted by a spinning backfist which sees him hit the mat hard. As he rolls out of the ring, groaning, Java calls "Next!" and turns back to the punching bag.


Next up, Braden Streets, eldest son of legend - and colour commentator - Dusty. Braden charges in enthusiastically, in much the same way as Monty did, but at the last minute changes tack and goes for a takedown on the big man. Java's response is to sidestep, turn around, and practically decapitate the youngster with a kick to the face.


Back to the punching bag.




South California's Frankie Perez is the third to try his luck. As Java continues to punch away, Perez runs at him and, instead of trying to hit him, jumps straight past him, planting his feet on the ropes and springboarding back with a flying forearm attempt. It's an unusual strategy, and for a few seconds it seems like he's caught the giant Indonesian star off guard, but Java's hand shoots out and grabs him by the throat in mid-air, leaving him to fall victim to a devastating choke slam.


As Java slams Perez down into the mat, he's immediately confronted by Monty Trescarde. The self-professed "Wunderkind of Wall Street" has never met a shortcut he didn't try to take, and he aims for Java's face with a running knee. He's just millimetres away from getting that $500, but Java ducks the strike, and Trescarde's momentum carries him into the ropes, and back into a massive palm strike.


JAVA: I didn't say next, kid. If you're gonna cheat, be better at it.


Christopher Hart doesn't look like he's going to cheat. The behemoth - one of the tallest men in wrestling - nods at Java, and waits for him to get back to the punching bag, then calmly and methodically walks nearer. Biding his time, he waits for the veteran to land a big shot on the bag, then uses his huge reach to grab Java by the shoulder and spin him around. Hart's right hand shoots out and it seems as if this is finally it - the money's going to be won - but just as his fist nears Java's face, Java knocks it out of the way with his left hand, before delivering another devastating palm strike with his right.


Surveying the carnage left in his wake, Java smiles with satisfaction.


JAVA: Thanks for the warm-up, kids. See you in the big league. Someday.




Show notes: Wanda Fish interviewed Philip Roberts, and announced that as a result of the injury Alexander Robinson had suffered fighting in Japan Roberts had been given the win via forfeit in his match tonight! Roberts said he was still in the mood to beat someone up, as a warm-up for April Assault, and proceded to do just that against Rocky Hardy, making the big guy tap out.


Fish would also interview Robinson himself, who seemed less devastated than you'd expect to be missing out on a title chance - saying he knew he'd get a shot soon, whoever left the big show with the belt - and flirting with Wanda.


Brendan Idol beat Cedar Rapids Future Stars wrestler Sam Pratt, then asked Joss Thompson to let him take on EMM Moe on Thompson's behalf at April Assault, since Thompson will be involved in the Sprint title match. Thompson said he'd consider it.



We got our third man qualifying for that triple threat, Erik Strong defeating Joshua Taylor - much to the delight of Super Lucha Scott, at ringside for Strong to keep an eye out for Taylor's unhinged companion, the Insane Heat.


Billy Russell and Willie York defeated Chance Fortune and American Machine, then issued an open challenge for April Assault. It was quickly answered by Kashmir Singh and Art Reed, who said they'd been considering teaming up and would be happy to provide the opposition next week.


Shane Sneer announced that he'd been petitioning the board of directors to recognise the massive mistake they'd made in leaving Leper Messiah out of the World title tournament, and they'd agreed that he deserved the chance to earn a shot - and had booked him against Johnny Bloodstone in a number one contenders' match at April Assault!


And Tom Gilmore made it a triple threat main event for our first big show, beating Oliver Kobb via an STF to finish level with Philip Roberts on four points each. As Gilmore celebrated, both of his opponents for the upcoming title match - Roberts himself and Canadian star John Maverick - came out and the three stared at each other as the show went off air.

CRW April Assault Preview


In our main event, we’ll crown our first World champion, and we unexpectedly have a triple threat! John Maverick won 3 out of 3 matches in his block to qualify while Tom Gilmore beat Oliver Kobb and Alexander Robinson to finish on 4 points from a possible 6 - level with Philip Roberts, who went over Gilmore and picked up a forfeit win over Robinson due to the latter being injured over in Japan. Unbeaten so far, The Silent Threat may be considered the favourite, but when three guys this good square off, it’s the fans who are the victors!


We’ll also see Sprint title action. The secondary belt will be contested in 15 minute matches, with no champion’s advantage. Another triple threat will crown the first champ here, as Java goes against Joss Thompson and Erik Strong. Thompson is still furious that EMM Moe stole his guitar, while Strong is being hunted by the darkness inside the Insane Heat. But both men will have to be on the top of their game to stand a chance against the powerful Java.


Speaking of The Insane Heat, crowd favourite Super Lucha Scott is seriously unhappy about his attempts to covert Strong to the darkness. Scott and the Heat will go one on one at April Assault.


And going back to Joss Thompson’s issues, he’s too busy in the Sprint title match to fight EMM Moe himself. Can super-fan Brendan Idol impress his hero by picking up the victory over Thompson’s tormentor?


Plus, Art Reed and Kashmir Singh will want to forget about their showing in the World title tournament - could teaming up be the way to do it? They’ve answered the open challenge issues by Billy and Willie!


And last, but by no means least, The Leper Messiah will step into a CRW ring for just the second time, and it will be in a number one contender’s bout! Shane Sneer somehow managed to convince the board of directors that leaving the massive Messiah out of the World title tournament was such a show of disrespect that this was the only way to make it up to him. But his opponent will be Johnny Bloodstone, who may be smaller but knows a lot about bringing big men down to size. Will Sneer’s man be able to get the win?


Prediction Key:


CRW World Title match: Tom Gilmore vs John Maverick vs Philip Roberts

CRW Sprint Title match: Java vs Erik Strong vs Joss Thompson

CRW World Title number 1 contender's match: Johnny Bloodstone vs The Leper Messiah

Brendan Idol vs EMM Moe

Super Lucha Scott vs The Insane Heat

Billy & Willie vs Art Reed and Kashmir Singh

Palm strikes for both men saw Java take his pick of who to cover, getting the victory over Thompson in the end.</p><p> </p><p> And in the main event, a hard-fought contest between the three men ended when John Maverick was caught by Angry Gilmore's Anger Management, with Roberts too dazed by Maverick's huge superplex so unable to make the save.
