NWA Anarchy TV Report by Ca$hFlowX

Episode 156

February 9, 2009

 

WRESTLING: (n.) ’res-ling A sport of contest in which two individuals face off in unarmed combat.

ANARCHY: (n.) an-ar-key (1) A state of lawlessness due to absence of authority. (2) A complete lack of order.

What happens when you mix the two together? NWA-Anarchy!

 

- Welcome to NWA Anarchy, this is PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING~! Season’s Beatings is almost upon us and last week several events occurred leading up to it. First, Adrian Hawkins provided an assist to help Azreal challenge Slim J for the Young Lions Title. As a result, Hayden Young and Hawkins have a date in 7 days. Second, Dan Wilson & the Devil’s Rejects failed to answer NWA Anarchy TV Champion Truitt Fields’ open challenge to Iceberg in a title vs. title match. The Rejects responded by attempting to launch an attack, but Shaun Tempers reappeared to save the day and snatch up a rematch with Fields for the TV Title. Also, John Johnson conducted an interview with alleged #1 contenders to the NWA Anarchy Tag Team Titles Talent & Money; the segment ended with Bill Behrens booking a three way captains match between Jeremy Vain vs. JT Talent vs. Chad Parham. The rematch for the final spot in the three way dance for the NWA Anarchy Heavyweight Title match between Phil Shatter and Mikael Judas will occur. The match is no DQ, no countout.

 

- We head to the ring and look who is pregnant doging and complaining as usual, "Agent/Attorney" Jeff G. Bailey. This week he is utterly pissed at Ace Rockwell’s abject cowardice and Jerry Palmer’s abuse of power leaving him all alone in the ring. With Kimo about to eliminate Rockwell, a stupid referee interfered and cost his suspension. Then, Bailey airs footage of the assault and subsequent suspension by Palmer. After commercial, Bailey is mad that the insignificant speck of a referee didn’t die. What happened to Wes Grissom is Rockwell’s fault. The two co-conspirators made two relevant statements (according to Bailey): (1) Rockwell said someone has to stop Kimo, and (2) someone had the nerve to call the Butcher of Pyongyang an animal. LOL! Animals? What happens when you put an animal in a cage? Bailey issues the open challenge to Rockwell to face off the with an animal inside a steal cage match at Season’s Beatings. After calling Rockwell a yellow bellied coward, guess who shows up? It isn’t Terry Funk. No, it’s Rockwell entering the NWA Arena chanting his name. Rockwell note that he doesn’t have a yellow streak down his back, so he can’t be a coward. Bailey thought the video was hilarious and John Johnson gives it two thumbs up. Rockwell feels terrible about it, but its water under the bridge. And the open challenge? Rockwell gladly accepts to kick Kimo’s ass inside of a steal cage. NWA Anarchy Owner Jerry Palmer heads out to even the odds by adding the stipulation that Rockwell can win by escaping the cage. If Kimo touches the official, Kimo and Bailey will be gone. Johnson soils himself in disbelief. Bailey laughs at the fact that tonight’s special referee for Shatter’s match, Shadow Jackson will not be there and he is also a coward. Palmer said Jackson was unable to attend due to family reasons, but he has a special referee in mind that Bailey is left to ponder.

 

1. Jeremy Vain w/"the One Man Insurance Policy" Mr. Rob Adonis vs. "Numero Uno" Chad Parham w/"Boy Wonder" Seth Delay vs. JT Talent w/Andrew Pendleton III ended in a no contest.

This starts off with a three way face off and Vain plastering Parham. At ringside, Delay chills with a bottle of beer. Talent slaps the taste out of Parham’s mouth and this turns into an all out fight. Three way action ensues for several minutes. After Parham breaks up a Vain pin attempt, all three partners hop on the apron. After commercial, Talent takes Vain down with a clothesline and an inverted Russian legsweep. Talent then whips Vain and he baseball slide kicks Parham. Talent continues to display his Talent until Mr. Adonis grabs his leg and Vain follows up with the VDT. The referee immediately calls for the bell once Pendleton pulls Vain off Talent on a pinfall attempt. All Hades breaks loose as several referees head to ringside to quell the situation. To the back, the New Wave, standing on a ladder, challenges all three teams to a ladder match at Season’s Beatings. The heels argue mid ring as we head to commercial.

 

- Jerry Palmer’s 30 days possession of Coates has expired and Brodie Ray Chase heads out to confront the situation head on. Johnson refers to Coates as "two-timing gutter trash." Johnson sure likes kicking a woman when she is down! Chase continues to harass and blame Coates about losing her for 30 days. He prepares to strike Coates, but Palmer makes the save. Palmer gets gangster with Chase by leveling his disgusting carcass with a forearm. Palmer pulls off his jacket and welcomes Chase into the ring, but he chickens out.

 

2. "Priest of Punishment" Mikael Judas pinned "Universal Soldier" Phil Shatter w/"Attorney/Agent" Jeff G Bailey in a no DQ, no countout match to earn a shot at the NWA Anarchy Heavyweight Title at Season’s Beatings.

This match was an incredibly strange sight. It had top notch wrestling and an eerily silent crowd. Bill Behrens serves as special guest referee for this contest. It seems like the old man that Johnson wishes to kick the bucket is out to deliver more sadistic torture to out esteemed color commentator. The action quickly spreads to the floor where Judas lands his patented flying clothesline. Judas manhandles Shatter at ringside including choking him with wiring. A fan holds up a chair and Judas smashes Shatter’s head on it. After commercial, Bailey allows the Universal Solider to gain the advantage by tripping up Judas on the top rope. Shatter mounts the turnbuckle and delivers a major league suplex. Shatter rips the padding off the top turnbuckle. After more domination by Shatter, he grabs a chair from Bailey and jabs Judas’ back with it. Shatter continues to work over Judas’ back and limit his oxygen supply. After commercial, Judas fires back with knees, kicks and strikes. Shatter ducks the Yakuza kick and runs head first into the chair lodged between the middle and exposed top turnbuckle. Judas mounts the top turnbuckle looking for a flying clothesline, but Shatter spears him in midair. Shatter heads to the High Rent District, but Judas makes him pay with a Rocket Launcher and a Yakuza kick. After ducking a clothesline, Shatter hits the PTSD powerbomb. After commercial, Shatter makes the cover and almost scores the victory. Judas catches a frustrated Shatter on the middle turnbuckle and chokeslams him. Judas makes the cover, but Shatter kicks out. Judas sets up for the El Crucifijo while Bailey mounts the apron with a mysterious white powder in hand. Judas drops Shatter to confront Bailey. Bailey’s actions backfire as Behrens accidentally causes the power to go into Bailey’s eyes. Shatter takes advantage of the distraction, but not enough to the hit the PTSD. Judas escapes and hits the chokebreaker for the victory.

 

- As Hunter signals the close of the show, NWA Anarchy Heavyweight Champion Iceberg and Dan Wilson confront Judas from ringside. Iceberg hoists his prized possession to taunt the Judas. Good way to close the show, but too bad the crowd was silent.

03/31/2009 – Rants, Raves & Random Thoughts by Rich Tate

A few members of the Georgia Wrestling History crew attended the last NWA Anarchy show, but it was more than just wrestling we were there to see. My co-host on Peach State Pandemonium, Les Thatcher, was holding a training camp, and we wanted to not only visit with him during breaks, but also watch him in action as he worked to enhance the talents of several veteran wrestlers, and also helping kids newer to the business get a better understanding of how to put on a good match, not just using their skills but also how to use psychology.

Knowing Les for many years, I have heard much of what he had to say to the guys, but seeing their reactions was what I really wanted to see. You could almost see imaginary light bulbs going off over their heads as he made his points as to why something does or doesn’t work well. While I realize the camp was voluntary on the part of the Anarchy crew, it was clear during the actual show that some of the boys who were at the camp were trying to utilize some of what they had learned, only to have it not play out correctly since many of the roster did not participate in the camp. Hopefully, the guys who did attend can pass along what it was they learned and were trying to accomplish, so that the knowledge continues to spread. There were also a lot of guys who were not part of the Anarchy crew at the camp, and no doubt they will also take what they learned and try and pass it along to their colleagues over the years.

Larry Goodman and I spent a good portion of last week’s PSP show discussing the camp, and also had Ace Rockwell with us, who participated over the weekend. It may have come off as a thirty-minute sales pitch for Les and his Elite Pro Wrestling Training, but Les is one of the few guys left who can teach every aspect of the business to the younger generation. His passion and love for professional wrestling puts him on a different plane than some of the schools or trainers out there who simply will take your money and call you a wrestler, sending you off into the business not fully equipped to succeed. I’m not saying he is the only capable trainer, or that all of the school are rip-offs, but Les is definitely at the top of the heap when it comes to true professionals to learn from if you want to go far in the business. Click here for the archive if you missed it.

I couldn’t believe the feedback I got from a comment I made on the show. A few promoters seemed to take exception, as I called Anarchy the premier wrestling promotion in Georgia. Although Anarchy has only been around since 2005, it did descend from NWA Wildside, which descended from NWA Georgia, etc., dating back to 1997, with no breaks or hiatuses. No other promotion in Georgia can boast of that longevity, nor do they have the same production quality or television capabilities. They also cannot boast of developing so many young wrestlers that have gone on to bigger and better things. When another promotion in Georgia makes it anywhere close to what Anarchy has achieved, they will have earned to be mentioned in that same vein.

It is a shame so many independent promoters get their feelings hurt when someone dares to utter compliments toward another promotion, or when someone criticizes something they do. There is not a single promotion, Anarchy included, who ever puts on a perfect show top to bottom. A compliment for one promotion is not a knock on another, nor does it mean your promotion stinks because one of the matches wasn’t well received by a person writing a report. Quite simply, as long as the criticism is constructive, use that criticism to learn and make improvements.

WRESTLING WITH HUNGER SETS 72 HOUR+ WORLD RECORD WHILE RAISING OVER 3,000 POUNDS OF FOOD FOR FOOD BANK

April 5, 2009
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PORT COQUITLAM, BC – Twenty wrestlers have completed a 72 hour 1 minute and 50 second marathon show to let the world’s record for the longest pro-wrestling show ever.

Wrestling With Hunger began at 2pm on April 2nd and wrapped up today (April 5th) just after 2pm.  The twenty wrestlers grappled around the clock for three days at Hyde Creek Recreation Centre in Port Coquitlam, BC to raise money and food to restock the shelves at the food bank and to set the world record for the longest wrestling show.

In 2007, the three food bank depots operated by SHARE in the Tri-Cities provided food to 1,142 households totaling 5,598 people.  45.1% of the recipients are children and youth under the age of 19 – an increase of 8.1% over the previous year.  The need for donations at this time of year is great.

Schools, businesses, churches, organizations and individuals were encouraged to setup their own food drives and then bring the donations to the Wrestling With Hunger event location.  The community responded with 3,021 pounds of food.

For more information visit www.WrestlingWithHunger.com or contact Dave Teixeira at dave@dave.ca or (604) 418-9177.

NWA Charlotte
April 11, 2009
Final Destination, "The End of the Beginning"
NWA Coliseum
Charlotte, NC

Final Destination, “The End of the Beginning” will be NWA-Charlotte’s biggest show to date as we crown the new NWA Charlotte Heavyweight Champion. After 4 weeks of eliminations, Truitt Fields and RoughHouse Ryan O’Reilly will battle it out until one man stands victorious. What a match this will be.

As the family invasion continues, Ric Flair’s son, Reid, will join Brad Anderson as they take on NWA Mid-Atlantic Legends Champion Jeff Lewis. Will Lewis put the title on the line as Reid Flair has requested?

NWA National Champion Phil Shatter will be in action, as well as Mikael Judas, Kimo with manager Jeff G. Bailey, JD Costello’s bodyguard Iceberg, Timber, the American Gangsters, Team Ego, New Wave, Josh Magnum, Malachi and many more!

After Lodi was defeated by Ryan O’Reilly last week, where does he stand with Raven? Because Raven could not attend this show, he asked Lodi to stand in for him on this match. There seems to already be problems between the two former Flock members.

Plus NWA President JD Costello will turn the company over to Jim Cornette to run as he sees fit. Last week, JD brought in Abdullah the Butcher to restore law and order with the bad guys. Instead, his plan backfired as Abdullah was paid off and turned on JD. Timber ran out to save Costello, resulting in the match between Timber and Abdullah.

NWA NEW JAPAN

 

Hiroshi Tanahashi’s evolution continued today as the brilliant young superstar of the Japanese wrestling industry shone brightly and fended off the challenge of global superstar Kurt Angle today at Sumo Hall. The man who has helped bring so much back to the IWGP Heavyweight Title followed up on his Tokyo Dome victory over Keiji Muto and successful V1 defense over rival Shinsuke Nakamura by facing the former IWGP 3rd Belt holder, Angle, in an electric main event full of drama and great crowd heat. Tanahashi endured Angle’s ankle locks and bombs, winning cleanly and decisively with two High Fly Flows to further cement his status as the ace. Tanahashi, who will next defend against NJC winner Hirooki Goto in Fukuoka just under a month from now, declared that his evolution hasn’t finished yet.

Nakamura has been trying to keep up with Tanahashi since failing to lift the belt off him in February but a loss to Goto in the New Japan Cup didn’t help matter. Today, he risked losing to the other of the four men who top the new generation, Togi Makabe, who sought revenge for his NJC round one loss to Nakamura. Perhaps Makabe might have beaten Nakamura had not his GBH ally Toru Yano suddenly betrayed him with a chairshot, leading to Nakamura hitting the Landslide for the win. There was much confusion over Yano’s status after the match but the general question was is Yano about to join Nakamura in the fight against GBH? Yano himself fell to the on-fire Goto earlier in the show but only after a difficult challenge against the #1 contender for Tanahashi’s title.

Former tag partners and once upon a time trusted friends, Yuji Nagata and Takashi Iizuka, went to war in a Chain Death Match today, the first of its kind since Iizuka put Tenzan to sleep in the same building last October. Blood was shed, more of Iizuka’s than Nagata’s but the dangerous Iizuka again proved to be a handful as he hanged Nagata over the ropes with his chain until Nagata blacked out, forcing the referee stoppage. With this victory over Nagata and not a single fall defeat since last July, Iizuka can surely stake a claim for a shot at the IWGP Heavyweight Title — if that is even in his plans.

Wild Child’s reunion went completely wrong! The long awaited revival of Manabu Nakanishi & Takao Omori, former IWGP Tag Team Champions, took place and with them facing Bernard and Anderson, the latter a young undercarder still learning the ropes, pretty much everyone expected a straightforward victory for the Japanese big men. And yet somehow, Omori blundered and was pinned not by Bernard but Anderson, leaving the reunion in tatters. Nakanishi raged after the match, unable to believe they had lost and now handed a dilemma – whether to choose Omori or Yutaka Yoshie as his regular tag partner.

Tiger Mask risked his IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title against Black Tiger’s mask today in the decisive battle between the two old rivals – and as it turned out, this was the same Black Tiger that Tiger Mask feuded with several years back. The first stage of the match ended inconclusively as both were counted out, leading to huge boos from the fans. But with the stipulation demanding an outcome it was restarted and Tiger Mask made short work of his challenger, pinning him with his new Destroy suplex hold. The fourth generation of Black Tiger then unmasked, revealing Rocky Romero at last and he shook hands with Tiger. And then came the twist – as the same Black Tiger in black who attacked Tiger Mask at the last Sumo Hall show, again appeared and laid out Tiger Mask with a Death Valley bomb, then unmasked him. So Black Tiger Romero seemed to be a front to a new threat in the life of Tiger Mask.

The Motor City Machine Guns, after fending off NO LIMIT on home soil in TNA, today faced “Apollo 55″ Ryusuke Taguchi & Prince Devitt in what was described as a very exciting match. This lasted much longer than the four minute NO LIMIT challenge for MCMG’s IWGP Jr. Tag Team Title and ended with Devitt falling to the Made in Detroit. Shelley and Sabin both expressed their will to keep defending the belts in both countries.

Hiroyoshi Tenzan appeared during the show to speak to the fans, his long absence nearing its end. Tenzan announced that both he and his famous tandem with Satoshi Kojima, TenKoji, will return on 5/3 when New Japan runs the Fukuoka International Center. The two will be targetting Team 3D’s IWGP Tag Team Title and with Wild Child’s reunion failing, could quickly be granted a shot at the TNA Wrestling duo.
