A WHISTLE-BLOWER & A CONSPIRACY?
IWC’s Payback, January 26, 2013 at the Court Time Sports Center ended in absolute chaos. A month removed from losing his IWC Title to John McChesney as part of Norm Connors, Jimmy DeMarco’s, and McChesney’s plan to usurp power from Chuck Roberts & the rest of the IWC roster, Shulo defended his remaining title, the prestigious Super Indy Title, against Anthony Nese, a very worthy contender. Hundreds of interested onlookers watched the bout closely, including Norm Connors, who had just returned after leaving the building early in the night after being ejected by owner Chuck Roberts, only to return the only way Chuck would permit him… a ticket-buying fan. With obnoxious whistle in mouth, it was clear Norm wanted full attention & spotlight on him at varying points in the night. However, at one point when the whistle was blown… the lights went pitch black… upon the lighting being restored the demonic Gory was standing in the ring, and blinded Shulo with his red liquid mist. With that, the lights went back down, and back up… with Gory now nowhere in site. Nese was able to easily defeat Shulo from there to capture the Title, but several obvious questions remain. Was it mere coincidence that Norm’s blowing of the whistle coincided with Gory’s emergence? Where has Gory been after not being seen at all in IWC since last August? Where was Norm for the hour and a half he was gone between leaving the building and returning to buy a ticket? Is there any way two diverse personalities like Norm & Gory could work together? Logan Shulo certainly seems to think so, as he wasted no time clocking Norm on his way to the back. Norm immediately threatened to sue, promising strict legal action and dire consequences. We’ll keep you posted here on IWCwrestling.com for further updates on this matter.
It was a difficult night elsewhere for Team Big League, as IWC Champion John McChesney barely escaped “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin with title in tact, as the ROH standout displayed frightening power and unwavering tenacity that not even McChesney’s cronies Nutts & Brooks could deter. In the end, Elgin was framed… disqualified and set up to fail by Team Big League, the only way they could escape with title in tact. Though the former House of Truth member promised he will be back and the results will be different. Meanwhile, W.A.R. (We Are Rockstars – Aiden Veil & Jordan Lennox) defeated Jimmy Nutts & Joseph Brooks, with Veil pinning Nutts after Nutts spending much of the match eluding Veil. It was a small measure of revenge for Veil who has seen his friendship with Nutts & health of his shoulder ruined by the selfishness of his former friend. Meanwhile, “Party Peacock” Dalton Castle was able to battle through the latest Team Big League roadblock in the internationally acclaimed Bobby Fish. With Castle performing so strongly against every test, including his huge win over Ray Rowe last year, many experts claim Dalton’s time as IWC Champion is very imminent.
Justin Idol has taken another step closer to earning a full time IWC contract once again, as Team Big League continues to ADD members to try to slow down Justin’s progress. Idol was victorious, however, over Chest Flexor’s newest recruit Andrew Palace. Idol is so close to realizing his goal and being back on the IWC roster for good. Will any more surprises be in store for him?
Mickey & Marshall Gambino returned to IWC with a vengeance. The seemingly Norm-loyalists defeated the recenly hot team of Keith Haught & Colin Delaney, with IWC Tag Champions The Founding Fathers watching ringside scouting. Either of these teams would be formidable foes to the faction that has had a stranglehold on the tag division for so long.
Elsewhere, Mike Rayne continued his undefeated streak AND earned a shot at the IWC Super Indy Title with an impressive win over Alex Reynolds & the debuting Shane Strickland, and Jon Bolen & Brian McDowell (subbing for HD Cannon, battling a severe case of pneumonia) were victorious over Matt Sagaris & Bronco McBride, Blue Collar Slaughterhouse.
