5) Seth Delay w/ Brodie Ray Chase d. Slim J w/ Orion Bishop in a brass knuckles on a poll match when fill-in Referee Mike Posey nails Slim J with his own brass knuckles. Brodie was sent to the back after he climbed the ropes and grabbed the brass knuckles. The first ref tried to re-hang them but fell off when the wrestlers hit the ropes. Posey came out to take over and Bishop helped the first ref to the back.
6) Jeremy Vain d. Shadow Jackson to retain the Anarchy Heavyweight title when Orion Bishop came out to check on Shadow Jackson and then SPEARS HIM! Vain and Bishop celebrate together.
7) Team Anarchy d. The Unholy Alliance when Ace Rockwell taped Shaun Tempers to the ropes and beat him into submission. Some AMAZING stuff in this match. It was announced that Truitt Fields could not make the show due to a death in his family and Slim J had said he would step in. The matched started and Slim was not able to come out due to the shot from the brass knuckles. SHADOW JACKSON replaced him! Ace Rockwell did an airplane spin with TANK on his shoulders… yes TANK…. he spun over ten times… it was crazy. Shatter then slammed Ace into all 4 sides of the cage, denting all 4 sides! Judas gave Kimo a crucifix powerbomb. Judas also worked with Iceberg to crucifix powerbomb him off the top onto Tank on a table… it was insane.
Order of entry:
After the match Team Anarchy throws The Reverend in the cage with Iceberg and Jerry Palmer. Palmer pummels him and gives him a tombstone piledriver. Iceberg went to the top and came down with a big splash on The Reverend! They carried Rev out on a medic board. Great show.
August 29 NWA Aranchy Hostile Environment ’09
Long story short, NWA Anarchy’s Hostile Environment ’09 delivered the goods. Leave it to the annual War Games event to bring out the psychosis, the sickness, the depravity that lurks in the minds of these young men, and the guts to pull off the insanity those minds envision.
The crowd at the NWA Arena was a little under 200 – a slight drop off from Hardcore Hell (210) and down from 235 for the same event in 2008. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s a more seasoned, hardcore group now. They’re hot when the action justifies it, but it’s not an easy crowd like it was during in the early part of Anarchy’s run. Hostile Environment gave them plenty to get fired up about.
The big stipulation matches – the War Games and the tag team Ladder Match – had all the spectacular moments one could ask for. And a third, the Brass Knucks on a Pole between Seth Delay and Slim J, produced the best technical match of the evening. Not only were the finishes of all the top matches well-executed, but a couple them had cool storyline twists.
The undercard fell a bit short of the mark, but that’s not what people were paying their 20 bucks to see. Everything from the Ladder Match on was quality stuff.
Two matches were changed due to talent cancellations. That’s unusual for Anarchy, especially for a supercard. Truitt Fields missed the War Games due to the death of his grandfather. The four-way for the Young Lion’s Championship was switched to a number one contender’s match when Champion Malachi called in with a high fever.
NWA Anarchy owner Jerry Palmer out in cammies and carrying the American flag did his best to gin up the crowd. Palmer announced that Gordon Solie’s daughter and son-in-law, Pam and Bob Allyn, were in the building with autographed copies of their new book, The Solie Chronicles. The mention of Solie’s name got a bigger pop than I thought it would.
Todd Sexton challenged anyone in the back to a match. He said it was wrong for an Anarchy original like the “Excellence of Sexecution” not to be booked on the big show. That lead to…
