NWA Anarchy TV Report by Ca$hFlowX
January 5, 2009
151 is an awesome number and serves as awesome Mini-wakan up here in
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~! This week on NWA Anarchy Wrestling, our beloved color commentator John Johnson has excused himself to eliminate a major hemorrhoid from Hunter’s posterior. With Fright Night 2008 complete, all roads head in to Season’s Beatings, NWA Anarchy’s annual celebration of Christmas. This week, up for dibs is the first round of the Young Lion’s Division Tournament to crown a new #1 contender to the inaugural champion Slim J, and the New Wave defending the NWA Anarchy Tag Team Titles against the Dynamic Duo.
– NWA Anarchy Owner Jerry Palmer believes Melissa Coates made the right decision to leave the womanizing Brody Lee Chase. He introduces the all new and improved Melissa, who smiles to the NWA Arena faithful. She will miss the next TV taping to wrestle on an all women’s show in
– Slim J Was crowned the first Young Lion’s Champion at Fright Night 2008. Hunter announces that a tournament will be held to crown a #1 contender. Participants include: "Code Pink" Adrian Hawkins, Chip Day, Bo Newsome, Caleb Conley, Kyle Matthews, Andrew Alexander, and Hayden Young. Next week: Day vs. Young. This week: Conley vs. Hawkins.
1. "Code Pink" Adrian Hawkins pinned Caleb "Sex" Conley to advance to the semifinals of the Young Lion’s Cup #1 Contender Tournament.
After commercial, Hawkins immediately launches a premeditated attack. "The Wizard of Aaaaaaaahs" Andrew Alexander joins the lonely Hunter on commentary. They laugh at the ridiculous proclamation of Hawkins’s self-anointment as a veteran. Late in the match, Hawkins counters Conley with a top rope Sunset flip powerbomb and ends the match with the Mach 5.
– Backstage, Kyle Matthews and Bo Newsome admire Hawkins’s dominance. Alexander informs Kyle & Newsome that he will be facing one of them. That’s when "the Dragon" Dan Wilson & "the Son of Satan" Azreal enter the scene. He announces Azreal’s entry and officially proclaims their ultimate destruction.
2. "The 7 Figured Deal" Ace Rockwell pinned "Mohawk" Michael Mosley.
Mosley put a strong showing here. Rockwell brings his much adversary down to his size with a quick foot stomp and a lesson in professional wrestling. Mosley slyly gains the advantage with an eye rake and focuses his attack on Rockwell’s back. Mosley spills to the floor after Rockwell eludes the Yakuza kick. Rockwell fires away, lands the Stinger splash and almost wins with a bulldog. Despite Mosley continuing to overpower Rockwell, the 7 Figured Deal ends this with the Ace’s High.
– After commercial, Agent/Attorney Jeff G. Bailey unmasks the Butcher of Pyongyang on Rockwell. Kimo nails referee Wes Grissom and unleashes a barrage of chops to his mid-section. Rockwell makes the save by clotheslining Kimo to the floor. Several referees and Rockwell aid Grissom, who is bleeding from the mouth. This prompts Palmer to scorn Bailey & Kimo. Palmer suspends Kimo for 30 days and if it happens again, it’ll be forever. Then, Palmer suspends Bailey for 30 days. Good riddance. To the back, Palmer checks on Grissom’s condition while he awaits an ambulance.
3. The New Wave (Derrick Driver & Steven Walters) defeated The Dynamic Duo ("the Dark Knight"
Jeremy Vain joins Hunter on commentary and pregnant doges about the pretty boys holding the straps. Vain reminisces of previous encounters by asking Hunter did he receive a great deal at Lens’ Crafters. After commercial, Parham delivers his patented delayed vertical suplex. Walters delivers an unorthodox maneuver to escape Delay and makes the lukewarm tag to Driver. After the Dynamic Duo’s shenanigans backfire, the New Wave set up to finish Delay, but Mr. Adonis makes his way from the announcer’s table to shove Driver off the top rope. Vain enters the fray to beatdown the tag champs. Parham confronts Vain & Mr. Adonis which allows the New Wave to send both tag teams rolling to the floor.

NWA Main Event – Episode 42 by Larry Goodman
Airing on January 17, 2009 in
Taped January 15, 2009 in
The show was dedicated to Cousin Junior aka Moondog Cujo (Lanny Kean), who died of a heart attack on January 12 at the age of 48.
Jason James opened up hyping the
Jerry “The King” Lawler runs the gauntlet to regain the USWA Unified Title from Master of Pain (a pre-Undertaker Mark Calaway). Some background: These matches took place on April 24, 1989 at the Memphis Mid-South Coliseum. The so-called Unified Title – a unification of the AWA, CWA and World Class titles – had already fragmented. Lawler had beaten Curt Hennig in May 1988 to unify the AWA and CWA titles. But shortly after Lawler defeated Kerry Von Erich (December 1988 at SuperClash III in Chicago) to bring the World Class title into the fold, the AWA ceased to recognize Lawler as their champion Calaway had come into
The deal was Lawler had to beat three opponents to get the shot at Pain. First match was against Senshi Samurai. Lawler was 38 at this point. I had forgotten how agile he was his younger days. They did this awesome ref bump where Lawler leapfrogged Samurai and immediately collided with Jerry Calhoun. Tojo Yamamoto tried to hit Lawler with his kendo stick and hit Samurai instead. Match #2 was over in 7 seconds. Mr. Devastation turned his back on Lawler when the bell rang, and Lawler suplexed him for the pin. Lawler celebrated by sprinting circles in the ring. The final roadblock was more substantial – P. Y. Chu-Hi (Phil Hickerson) with Gossett in his corner. Gossett took a punch in the nose from Lawler, but managed to throw a chain to Chu-Hi. Calhoun wrestled the chain away from Chu-Hi and tossed it to Lawler, who KOed Chu-Hi for the 1-2-3. Gossett’s outside interference once again went awry in the title match. At this stage, Calaway was obviously very athletic with a great physique, but green and not at all special looking without the gimmick. Pain ordered Gossett to hold up a chair so he could smash Lawler’s head into it. You know who got rammed into the chair. Gossett was oblivious as Lawler made the pin. Lawler was attacked by Gossett. That was a sight to behold. Lawler was preparing to to dish out the payback when he got waylaid by Pain. All of Gossett’s minions hit the ring and and gave Lawler a groin shot into the post. Tracy Smothers and Jeff Jarrett were among those making the save.
Next up: Moondog Cujo’s final match at the Nashville Fairgrounds from the Lawler 35 show: Moondogs vs. Brian Christopher & Doug Gilbert. Match aired without commentary. JIP as they were brawling all over the building. A shovel was brought into play with Christopher and Gilbert both getting whacked on the head. Christopher and Gilbert made the comeback. Both Moondogs got kabonged with the shovel. Christopher pinned the unknown Moondog with the Hip Hop Drop.
I reviewed these matches in my live report on the 1/15 USA/NWA Main Event show, so I’ll try to keep it brief.
(1) NWA Mid-America Television Champion Shawn Shultz beat “The Internet’s Favorite Wrestler” White Tiger in 4:33. Solo commentary by Jason James. This was a little more competitive than I anticipated. Tiger’s wrestling didn’t look bad. His selling was suspect at points. The guy is definitely working on his game. It didn’t hurt that he had a quality opponent to carry it. Finish came after Tiger tried to cap his comeback with a moonsault. It missed and Shultz put him away with the DDT.
(2) Shane Smalls & Larry Cooter beat The Lucky Charms (Chris Cain & Dyron Flynn) in 8:02. NWA Main Event promoter Mike Porter joined James for the remainder of the show. Porter said Lucky Charms had contacted Kellogg’s about getting their pictures on the cereal box. My finger gets itchy on the remote every time I see Flynn on the screen. His presence makes this show look a mockery of pro wrestling. The lamest stomps you would ever want to see. Smalls couldn’t do a thing with him. Cain’s striking looked really good in this match. Porter said they had seating capacity for 1000 in
Shane Smalls cut a promo on Yoshi Kwan for
(3) In a match for the NWA Mid-America Heavyweight Championship: Steve-O (with Dominique) beat Champion “Playboy” Scott Hayes via DQ in 10:20. JIP. Steve-O took advantage of a missed springboard back elbow and focused his attack on the back of Hayes. Nothing wrong with Steve-O work here. James predicted a sell out in
Steve-O promo (with Dominique). O said Hayes was going to be off defending the title in another territory, so his opponent in
The show closed with Jeff Daniels (with Dominique) saying the NWA thought they had him right where they wanted him by putting him in with Lawler.
Let me tell you something, Kingfish. This is the NWA and I’m the man that makes things happen around here.

Friday, January 30th, 2009 marked the first ECCW show of 2009 at the Bridgeview Hall in Surrey – but even more importantly, it now marks the crowning of a new NWA/ECCW heavyweight champion!
The aftermath was apparent immediately, as Scotty Mac was taken to a nearby hospital in Surrey to receive 15 stitches in his head to close the wound suffered at the hands of
Kyle O’Reilly and El Phantasmo have waited a long time to finally get at each other in an ECCW ring, which was made evident during the 2008 ECCW awards ceremony, where the two fought after Phantasmo won the 2008 Most Popular Wrestler of the Year award, and after Phantasmo made fun of O’Reilly for finishing after him in the 2008 Wrestler of the Year standings. That bad blood, and all the bad blood from the last six months, finally boiled over as the two men went at it in
The saga of Pop Culture and their bogus NWA championships took a new turn in
The 2008 ECCW awards ceremony was a gala affair, as the best and brightest of ECCW for the past year were recognized, as voted by the fans of ECCW. Congratulations to the following winners!
2008 ECCW Wrestler of the Year: Scotty Mac
The awards ceremony was not without its own newsworthy events. After winning the ECCW Manager of the Year award, The Natural was quick to defuse any sort of tension between
The wars from the SLAM Academy have spilled over into the main ECCW ring, as SLAM Academy graduate "Dastardly" Danni Deeds tangled once again with current SLAM Academy graduate Volt Vegas, and once again, Vegas was unable to solve the puzzle of Danni Deeds, as Deeds again scored the victory! Vegas challenged Deeds to another rematch, which Deeds accepted, on one condition – if Vegas lost to Deeds again, Vegas would receive another "honor" – he would be named the new ECCW Extreme Jobber champion!
The 2008 Tag Team of the Year, Nelson Creed & Kenny Lush, had no idea which two members of the Church of the Divine Prophecy they would defend the NWA/ECCW tag team championship against in Surrey, which ended up being Matt Classic & MANTHER – but when you face any members of the Church, you face all of them, as The Divine Prophet and his disciple Mike Dempsey were also involved in the match, giving Lush and Creed the victory by disqualification. The champions were angered at the turn of events, and followed up by executing their famed catapult/Flatliner combination on all four members of the Church!
It’s a shame when a family feud spills into the wrestling ring, but that’s exactly what we have with "Untouchable" Jamie Diaz and his mother, with a six-man tag team encounter not settling things, as Lumberjack Bubba, Junior & Mother Diaz defeated Jamie and his new friend Tony Baroni, with the matriarch of the Diaz family again pinning her son after Bubba and Junior combined with a catapult/big boot combination on Jamie! After the match, Mother Diaz again tried to make peace with her son, only for Tony Baroni to attack her from behind, allowing Jamie to deliver a vicious scissors kick to his own mother! Bubba and Junior prevented any further damage, but the damage may have split the Diaz family beyond repair!
