MEET THE NEW BOSS, SAME AS THE OLD BOSS
The main event of our event on December 15, 2012 at the Court Time Sports Center in Elizabeth, PA was already in disarray due to Sami Callihan replacing Michael Facade (who tearfully surrendered the Super Indy Title earlier in the night) in the Title vs. Title bout, a situation made even more uneasy by a seemingly random attack on Facade during the course of the event, leading to Facade being discovered by Norm Connors. At the urging of Norm, IWC Owner Chuck Roberts took Facade to the hospital immediately for inspection, leaving Norm in charge of the event.
The match itself was among the most physical IWC Title matches in recent memory, with special referee Jimmy DeMarco being very lenient on enforcing rules, hoping to see one clear cut winner. After over 15 minutes of battle, Shulo retained his title & also captured the vacant Super Indy Title (earning every bit of it) after having to powerbomb Sami for the second time. As Shulo was seemingly congratulated by DeMarco & Connors, the mood quickly changed, as Norm cheap-shotted Shulo with a low blow, allowing DeMarco to hit his signature C4 maneuver. Norm, still in charge in Chuck’s absence, inexplicably made an impromptu match for the IWC Title between Shulo & “Big League” John McChesney (flanked by Jimmy Nutts & Joseph Brooks, the newest recruits to “Team Big League” with DeMarco again serving as special referee). While Shulo kicked out of the first attempt to pin him, he was not as successful for the second. With fatigue and numbers setting in, Shulo was defeated & McChesney was IWC Champion once again. It was then that Norm dropped the bombshell that due to some fine print in the contract he had signed to sign the IWC organization away to Chuck Roberts, there was fine print in place allowing Norm to take back over as of 12-12-12. According to Norm, he is once again the owner of IWC. What does this mean? Is Norm correct? How and why did he do it? And why is he seemingly aligned with DeMarco & McChesney? This is a major story with monumental implications on IWC in 2013 and IWCwrestling.com will be chasing this story in the coming days & weeks!
While Shulo has got to be experiencing a whirlwind of emotion right now, he also must be cognizant of Anthony Nese, the deceptively agile physical specimen who survived the four-way battle to earn the #1 contender’s slot to the Super Indy Title. Nese overcame Bobby Fish, Johnny Gargano, and surprise fourth entrant Zema Ion (replacing Sami Callihan who had been promoted to the main event title match due to him being the last recognized Super Indy Champion before Facade). Nese is a threat who was not given the time to shine on a global stage, but is out to prove his value the best way one can – with the Super Indy gold.
Before his shocking coup at the end of the night, John McChesney was seemingly humbled by the “Innovator of Violence” Tommy Dreamer in a match that was made an “Extreme Rules” match, ironically, by Norm Connors. While Dreamer scored a memorable hard-fought victory with the Spicolli Driver, it was his words afterward that resonated most. Dreamer not only showed a deep respect & appreciation for the IWC roster, but also had stern words for McChesney, telling him he has all the tools to be a champion, but he needs to respect the industry & the IWC fans. Judging by John’s actions later in the night, it seems Dreamer’s pleas may have fallen on deaf ears. Will there be a future altercation between “Big League” and the Extreme Original?
“Party Peacock” Dalton Castle continued his own personal quest towards another IWC Title shot with a bizarre victory over Chuck Taylor, who was accompanied, apparently, by “The Swamp Monster”. While this was a deep game of psychological warfare between the two, the amazing power of Castle and his deadlift German suplex was enough to continue his winning ways forward.
Founding Fathers members Super Hentai, Dennis Gregory & Jimmy Vega$ took their own abuse of power to new levels in their tag team title defense vs. “Extremely Cute Wrestler” Colin Delaney & his surprise mystery partner Keith Haught (the man who had eliminated Hentai from the Clearfield battle royal a month ago). While the “Freebird Rule” the Fathers have adopted would normally mean any two men in the group could legally defend the tag titles, the champions flagrantly ignored that stipulation, instead choosing to have all three men defend the title – with only one illegal man on the apron at once. While Colin & Haught worked extremely well for a first-time team, the numbers game is what did them in. With one Father pinned, and the other neutralized on the outside, the challengers had neglected to check the whereabouts of the third man. With that distraction, the Fathers stay on top.
Justin Idol continued his quest back to an IWC contract as he, his student HD Cannon, and Jon Bolen were victorious over Team Big League members Chest Flexor, Marshall “The Bull” Gambino & Andrew Palace. Remember, if Idol can beat all of Team Big League, Justin can re-gain his IWC contract. If he fails, he will be gone from IWC forever. Is McChesney himself next on Idol’s hit list?
Aiden Veil & Jordan Lennox picked up a major victory over perennial IWC Tag Title contenders Blue Collar Slaughterhouse, Matt Sagaris & Bronco McBride, but the celebration was short lived. Jimmy Nutts (aka James Nutter) emerged from the crowd with a friend, Joseph Brooks, and immediately assaulted Veil & Lennox at the behest of John McChesney. While Nutts & Brooks could not retain a spot on the IWC roster on their own, it seems they’ve sold their souls to the devil to sneak in under the banner of Team Big League.
“The Man Made For Prime Time” Mike Rayne continued a very impressive undefeated streak, using split second timing to counter an attempted moonsault by opponent “Slophunter” Alex Reynolds into a neckbreaker, continuing his flawless record.
