(1) Bo Newsome beat Todd Sexton in 7:01. This was just OK. A lot of stuff looked light. Heretofore heel ref Mike Posey shoved Sexton into a near fall. Crowd started getting behind Bo, and he hit a reverse DDT and great looking corkscrew neckbreak off the ropes for near falls. Newsome tried to channel A. J. Styles with the spinal tap. Sexton made him miss, and came back with big moves of his own, including a buckle bomb. Newsome won it with a huracanrana. Crowd popped for the finish, but the corkscrew neckbreaker was more impressive. I didn’t get the feeling this match boosted Newsome nearly as much as his win over Corvus two weeks ago.
(2) Entourage (Mike Mosley & Andrew Alexander with Mercedes Mosley) beat Wild Bunch (Billy Buck & Chris King) in 10:20. Mercedes rolled out the red carpet in her short dress and high heels. Taco Delgado entertaining in that spot. This came across like amateur hour. It will be a miracle if Anarchy ever books a woman to look intelligent. Wild Bunch was on a roll early. Buck backdropped Alexander over the top onto Mosley. While Alexander distracted the ref, Mosley gave Buck a beating on the outside to start the heat. There was a cool spot where Buck dumped Alexander over the top again, but this time, Alexander grabbed onto Buck’s foot to prevent a tag. It got to where Buck couldn’t stand under his own power. Or so it appeared. Superkick out of the blue by Buck, crowd chanting “Bill-E” and the hot tag. Finish saw Jay Clinton distract ref Brent Wiley, allowing Alexander to piledrive King.
Postmatch. Wild Bunch pulled off
Team Anarchy appeared on the WrestleVision. Palmer said they were at a disadvantage without Fields. Ace Rockwell said that was nothing new to him, because he had been at a disadvantage throughout his career due to being undersized. Palmer said they need somebody to step up. Slim J said he would represent for Team Anarchy.
(4) Talent & Money (JT Talent & Drew Pendleton III) beat New Wave (Steven Walters & Derrick Driver) in a ladder match to win the NWA Anarchy Tag Team Titles (18:12). Talent broke up an early Unskinny Bop by New Wave, and kicked Walters’ face off. Talent saw his partner in trouble at ringside and hit a flip dive on Driver. Wow, a dive that made sense. Driver dove onto the pile. T & M used a ladder to drive Driver’s back hard into the camera stand. Talent gave Walters a german suplex on the wooden ramp. Pendleton tried to climb but Driver toppled the ladder, and Pendleton scored a bullseye on the top rope with his crotch. Tons of bumps off the ladders. I’ll hit the high points. There was a bizarre spot where Pendleton got too tired to keep climbing, so Talent put him on his shoulders to give him a boost. Walter then came off the top with Doomsday Device lariat on Pendleton. The most insane spot of the night was unintentional. New Wave was trying for a Double Vision (double chestcracker) off the ladder on Pendelton. Instead, it ended up as a double brainbuster from near the top of an 8 foot ladder. Spiked Pendleton’s head straight into the mat. Looked like they killed him dead. One of the scariest spots I’ve ever witnessed. Pendleton sold it for a long time, but miraculously, he was semi-OK. Talent gave Walters a uranage from the third rung of the ladder. That was also nuts. New Wave gave Talent a double Spanish Fly onto a ladder bridged across two chairs. Unreal level of danger, but Talent survived intact. Walter tried to climb. Pendleton pulled his leg and Walters took an awesome face bump off the 8 foot ladder. Talent gave Walters a Rodeo Driver off the ropes. They were both destroyed at that point. Pendleton and Driver climbed opposite sides of the 10 foot ladder. Pendleton got hung upside down in the second rung of the ladder, but before Driver could grab the belts, Pendleton pulled out a bag powder and gave Driver a face full. Goodbye Driver. Pendleton got the belts. Great finish.
(7) Team Anarchy (Iceberg & Ace Rockwell & Mikal Judas & Shadow Jackson with Jerry Palmer) beat Unholy Alliance (Phil Shatter & Kimo & Shaun Tempers & Tank with The Reverend & Jeff G. Bailey) in 23:16. Incredibly violent match. Everyone bled except the TNA TV stars. Solie’s grandson, Ryan, was guest ring announcer. As Palmer noted, he has a bit of Gordon’s voice. Shatter and Iceberg started. Iceberg was wearing a new hood. Shatter punched Iceberg in the head, but all it did was hurt his hand. Iceberg revealed the hockey mask under his hood. Virtually all Berg for the first five minute period. The big pop came on a baseball slide to the groin. Shatter hit a super german suplex on Iceberg just as Tempers entered the cage. Iceberg took a beating until Rockwell entered. Tempers tried to cut him off, but Rockwell slammed the cage door into his head. Team Anarchy was on fire. They gave Tempers a shot into the cage to draw first blood. Tank entered next. Rockwell gave Tank an airplane spin like it was nothing. Mucho revolutions. An awesomely surprising spot that really got the crowd going. Shatter powerbombed Rockwell into all four sides of the cage. Bent the ever living crap out of it. Judas cleaned house on Unholy Alliance. Iceberg and Tank squared off with spikes. Iceberg got off first, and Tank was soon bleeding like a stuck pig. Rockwell and Tempers were also bleeding. Tempers had a crimson mask going. Kimo was last man in for Unholy Alliance. He hit an amazing STO on Judas. Tank used the spike on Rockwell, who got color like nobody’s business. Tank licked the blood off the spike. Kimo battered Rockwell with the rapid fire martial arts blows. J’s music play but no J. Crowd went crazy with the “Shadowmania” chant when
Postmatch, Palmer dished out payback for three years of the devil’s work. They yanked the Reverend into the cage. Palmer gave Reverend a tombstone piledriver. Then he used the spike to make the troll bleed. Lots. Iceberg squashed Reverend flat with a Ground Zero splash off the top. Reverend was carried out on a stretcher. I didn’t get doing blood and a stretcher job with Reverend. It felt like overkill. A blow off of that magnitude is worthy of being an advertised stipulation.
