IWC kicked off it’s most action-packed weekend in well over a year on Friday night, March 23rd at our famed home base of the Court Time Sports Center in Elizabeth, Pa as the journey to May 11’s Super Indy VI inched ever-so-closer.
The main event saw IWC Heavyweight Champion Ricky Reyes overcome another all-too-familiar name from his past: Current co-holder of the NWA World Tag Team Title “The Notorious 187” Homicide of the Latin American Xchange. Despite suffering a severely bloodied nose in the course of the match, Reyes did something few if anyone has been able to do: he applied the lethal Dragon Sleeper/bodyscissors combination and made Homicide tap out. Reyes may be the only man on Earth who can lay claim to tapping out BOTH Homicide and Low-ki in recent times. Reyes’ championship reign of dominance continues to grow more impressive as the weeks pass.
IWC Super Indy Champion Troy Lords continued his winning ways, putxting life and limb on the line again to somehow survive “Fabulous” John McChesney. McChesney’s record against Lords has dropped to 0-3-1, as it seems Lords may be the only opponent Fab has wrestled that he just can’t figure out, and just can’t beat. As a frustrated McChesney took a few moments to collect his thoughts post-match, sound technician Chest Flexor decided to play a little joke on the former 3-time champ by playing “Everybody Hurts” by REM over the sound system. A dejected McChesney didn’t see the humor in things, and responded with a hard slap to Flexor’s face. Promoter Norm Connors, enraged over Fab’s treatment of an IWC employee, withdrew McChesney from the upcoming Super Indy VI Title Tournament, an announcement that shocked and angered McChesney even further.
Mickey & Marshall Gambino issued an open challenge to tag team champions Jason Gory & Shiima Xion, no doubt capitalizing on the fact Gory & Xion had already competed in Super Indy VI Qualifying Matches earlier in the night. To counter-act the Gambinos’ extra muscle of Vendetta & Jimmy DeMarco, the team of Sexual Harassment, Eric Xtasy & Justin Idol, volunteered to watch the champs’ backs. However, Idol x& Xtasy and everyone else in attendance as well, were not prepared for the debut of Chris Maverick’s newest tag team: Romeo Roselli & Antonio Thomas, The Heartbreakers (Formerly the Heart Throbs in WWE). Romeo & Antonio blasted Xtasy & Idol from behind with chairs, leaving Jimmy DeMarco the opening to involve himself in the match, and help return the tag straps back to the Gambino Family for the third time.
Shiima Xion’s night was not all bad news however, as he became the latest star to qualify for Super Indy VI on May 11, joining the likes of Jerry Lynn, Azrieal, Jay Lethal, and Larry Sweeney. Shiima scored the victory over a returning and very competitive Jimmy Jacobs, however Jacobs’ night wasn’t over there. “Sweet & Sour” Larry Sweeney made a surprise appearance and challenge to Jacobs, seemingly jealous over Jacobs’ flamboyant attire, rivaled only by Sweeney himself. Sweeney insinuated Jaxcobs wasn’t the same competitor he once was, and with that Jacobs had to reach into a dark place. When Jacobs meets Sweeney on April 14th, it won’t be the emotional and eccentric Jacobs many fans have come to know over the past 2 years. The Jimmy Jacobs of old, the maniacal, sadistic, spike-wielding, HUSSing Barbaric Berzerker will return for one night only to extract revenge on Larry Sweeney.
HENTAI also qualified for the Super Indy Tournament, defeating then co-holder of the IWC Tag Title Jason Gory. HENTAI continues his mission to reclaim the Super Indy Title, which he has not held since early-2003. HENTAI wants nothing more in this world than to see his former protégé Troy Lords forced to surrender his Super Indy Title over to HENTAI, for HENTAI to reclaim that dominance and superiority he held over Lords for so many years until Lords defeated HENTAI in the Last Man Standing Match last November. The field of Super Indy VI is up to six, with two more slots to be filled in the very near future.
In a match of the two top heavyweight title contenders, Sterling James Keenan was able to defeat Dennis Gregory to continue his Road to the Title. With Super Indy VI now May 11, SJK will have an extra roadblock to burst through next month, but SJK’s momentum continues to build. The true intrigue came in the way Sterling was victorious, as HENTAI’s involvement cost Gregory the match. It didn’t appear SJK knew about HENTAI’s involvement so what are HENTAI’s motives? Is bad blood still boiling from the Unholy Alliance/Coalition of the Willing battles of 2006? Does this tie in at all to Gregory’s confrontation with HENTAI’s former co-horts Sebastian Dark & Steven Colter last month where Dark promised IWC would pay for firing the both of them late last year? We hope to discover answers to these at some point in the very near future.
In a tag team grudge match, The Cleveland Mafia avenged their loss from one month ago that was caused by Jimmy DeMarco & Vendetta, The Hollywood Balds, and more specifically the stone-faced killer and baddest man in IWC, Ray Rowe, gained revenge on Jimmy DeMarco, who had the temerity to come to the ring wearing an “I Pinned Ray Rowe” T-shirt. Rowe drilled DeMarco with a series of suplexes before finishing him with an STF.
Japanese sensation Nobutaka Moribe made his final appearance at the Court Time Sports Center a memorable one, unleashing a brutal assault on “Hot Property” Jason Cage, however Cage was able to survive and battle back in impressive fashion and pick up a victory, as Cage continues to build more momentum.
On the subject of momentum, Dean Radford continues to build plenty of it in his post-Unholy Alliance career, pinning the always-improving Suburban Terrorist Michael “The Bomber” Façade, yet it seemed both men left the match-up with a newfound mutual respect for one another.
