Kyle Matthews beat Andrew Alexander to advance in the Young Lion’s Contender Tournament. Mikal Judas vs. Shatter (with Jeff G. Bailey) ended as a double count out. Short, but awesome. It totally belonged in a major league ring. The returning Austin Creed won a 16 man Mega Rumble to win a future shot at the title of his choosing. The Reverend declined Truitt Fields’ request for a shot at the NWA Anarchy Heavyweight Title with the explanation that Iceberg had the night off because he hadn’t finished his Thanksgiving dinner. Fields pinned Azrael (with the Reverend) to retain the NWA Anarchy Television Championship. Over $500 dollars in cash and five bags of toys were contributed to Joey’s Toy Box. A full report from Larry Goodman will be posted at GWH later today.
