I’ll have exclusive video of two matches from the card below once they upload. It was an entertaining card, but unfortunately a good one for the Old School Mafia and their fans. I’ll leave editorializing to the show this week and just proceed with the card results

Corey Duncum defeated “New Era” Jimmy Parker after surprising Jimmy with a small package. Parker taunted an engaged-but-not-raucous crowd in a way that would make George South proud, calmly and vociferously complaining that he was “better than all of you.” Corey Duncum didn’t have much to say, but he didn’t need to, pinning Parker after a back and forth match. If I were calling this one for AIWF TV i’d be excoriating Parker for woofing at the crowd instead of staying on his man, but I looked at his cheering section seated close to me and realized that such an argument would be a foolish one. (And by the way, Jimmy, belated congratulations.)

Jimi Love then greeted the crowd. When his trademark music played, he greeted the happy throng of fans who have grown to know him over the years. He then called Beef to the ring. Beef, you see, lost his AIWF World Title match to Louis Moore July 14 when Jimi lost his cool and tried to hit Louis with a chair, only to accidentally hit the big man in the head. When Louis then covered Beef and demanded a three-count, Jimi (as special guest referee) “had no choice” but to make the three count. When Beef got to the ring Saturday night, Jimmy apologized to Beef for the mishap and offered his hand, saying he’d make things right for Beef in September in Pelham. He’d give Beef another chance at Louis Moore then (I think).

While Beef thought this over, The Great Wizard came to the ring, special suitcase in tow, followed by Scrapyard Dog, Matt Houston, and Louis Moore. Yes, the Old School Mafia decided to crash the proceedings. The Great Wizard handed Beef his suitcase, told him there was a check for $1500 inside, and all he needed to be able to cash that check was to hit Jimi with the suitcase and then join the Old School Mafia. Beef, who was slated to face Scrapyard Dog later in the evening, pondered the offer a little too long for the fans’ taste, but eventually kept the suitcase and then ran the OSM off with it. The bad guys retreated to the back, but instead of then shaking Jimi Love’s hand, Beef hit the PPW “Director of Operations” with his finishing move, a frighteningly violent spear a la Bill Goldberg. Beef then grabbed the microphone and said that while he wasn’t joining “those clowns back there,” he wasn’t accepting an apology. He then referred to Jimi as “Peckerwood,” which is either an insult or Jimi’s never-before-heard middle name. I can’t be sure. Beef then stalked off with the suitcase, with the check inside.

The Masked Assassin defeated Kanichiwa after a Big-Thump powerslam, grabbing the tights for leverage. The Assassin picked up on Parker’s crowd-taunting tactics, but was able to overcome the occasional distractions. He used a size advantage and a fair amount of corner-cutting to beat the rookie Kanichiwa, whose aerial tactics and rawness caught up to him tonight.

Matt Houston defeated Jason Blade in a 2-out-of-3 falls match to win Blade’s Pure Pro Wrestling Heavyweight championship. I’ll have full video and commentary on this match soon. Suffice it to say that we’ll be discussing this match on the This Week In Wrestling podcast very soon. There will be NO living with Matt Houston now. Sigh.

Beef defeated Scrapyard Dog after hitting Scrap with his trademark spear. Another violent, straight ahead Scrapyard Dog brawl with no time wasted. I like Scrap’s matches; is it obvious?) After the match, the Old School Mafia rushed the ring and ganged up on Beef, who was all by himself in the ring. When the referee Charles (who did a Darren-like iron man stint, refereeing every match of the night) tried to get in the way, Louis Moore roughly threw him out of the ring. However, when Jimi Love ran to the ring to help Beef, Charles snagged the briefcase back away from the Great Wizard, and the Old School Mafia scurried away. Jimi grabbed the microphone and said that if Beef would accept his apology, they’d go to the bar (presumably Kick Back Jacks. I didn’t ask, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. Heck, it seems like a good idea NOW and it’s 730 in the morning on the Monday after the event. I think I might be hungry.) Beef happily (and gratefully) accepted Jimi’s apology and presumably partied with the PPW boss man until the wee hours of the night.

The Set and Logan defeated Pure Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions Simply Perfect (Tommy and Mike Williams) and Court Montgomery after The Set hit Court with a Doomsday Device clothesline. The double-team averse Montgomery upset the Williams brothers, and his perceived lack of aggressiveness arguably caused the team to lose. Anyway, Simply Perfect snapped, attacking the weakened Montgomery and finishing him off with a vicious spike piledriver, injuring Court’s neck and turning their backs on the fans in the process. They continued the attack until Jason Blade ran to the ring to save Court from further damage. When The Set and Logan all joined Blade to clear Simply Perfect out of the ring, Mike Williams grabbed the microphone and essentially told the fans and Montgomery that they wanted nothing to do with any of them. Interesting turn of events. Court told me after the event that he wants to get back at the Williams’ by taking the tag team belts away from them. I endorse the idea, and Court Montgomery will be on my show in a few weeks to go into his plans a bit more. (I wanted to give him some time to recover). I’ll put video of this match up as soon as Youtube finishes their slowdown game of my HD videos.

Louis Moore defeated surprise contender Ouga Booga (with J.R. Jackson) after an absolutely brutal-but-entertaining match. Ouga Booga gave Louis Moore absolutely everything he could handle; he chopped his chest raw, left bite marks in his head, pounded him from pillar to post, and nearly escaped with the title more than once. He had Moore gripped in his abdominal-choke slam until the Great Wizard interfered (with Charles having been hit accidentally by Ouga Booga moments earlier.) When the Wizard interfered, JR Jackson jumped into the ring and started wailing away on the bespectacled OSM frontman, to the delight of the hundreds in attendance. JR pounded The Great Wizard until both men rolled out of the ring. In the fracas, Matt Houston slid Louis Moore’s branding iron to him. Louis grabbed it, nailed Ouga Booga in the jaw with it, and then covered Ouga Booga for a tainted (and tantalizingly slow) three count.

To recap, the Old School Mafia now holds the AIWF World Title, the AIWF Mid Atlantic Title, and the Pure Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Championship.

Read that sentence again.

May God help us all.

    I am a new huge wrestling fan and would like to know when will we know the wrestling videos are available for us to see and watch?

    I’m working on compressing them for YouTube. Things haven’t cooperated with the large files on any of the upload attempts (and trust me, there have been more than several!) Hopefully the first will be up by the end of the night.

    The first vid is up, the second is compressing now. Have at ’em! 😀
