I communicated with Kenny Omega who said it never happen.
Back story is….
Samoa Joe was never booked for Premere Championship Wrestling for this show.
Samoa Joe was in NY defending the TNA Title for TNA, the bookings he always had.
This promoter owes Samoa Joe & Chris Sabin fees from a 9-27-07 Winn*peg show. He was disapointed in the match Samoa Joe had with former WWE development talent Kenny Omega and lied about sending fees then refused to pay. Then lied that he would send Sabin money directly.
This is the Show report that was forwarded to me written by firstname.lastname@example.org.
” Last night I attended a Premier Championship Wrestling show where we were promised the world champion and got the complete opposite. Here are the results to what was a great show other than the bait and switch at the end.
PCW debuted at the Rokeby Community Center in Rokeby, SK in front of what had to be at least 600 people.
Cory Diamond d. Mentallo in 8 mins. Great match.
Brent Stafford and OZ d. Nick & Tom Manos to retain tag titles in 16 mins. The “father and son” tag team was impressive in their debut.
Adam Knight d. Jeff Doyle in 2 mins.
Adam Knight d. Yogi Donovan in 2 mins. Knight explained this was a warm up for TNA champion Samoa Joe.
JJ Walker and Paul Ranville d. Rawskillz and Chad Tatum. Match of the night.
Jean Marius d. JAPW champion Kenny Omega in a huge upset
Jay Walker d. Mike Arnott. This match was for Arnott’s valet.
Danny Duggan and The Big Sexy Beasts d. Mike Angels, Antonio Scorpio Jr. and Nate Hardy in 6 mins.
And now what has upsetted a whole rural Saskatchewan town,
“Outlaw” Adam Knight d. Virgil (yes that Virgil) for the TNA World Title. Yes you read that right.
The advertised match was Adam Knight vs. Samoa Joe for the World title. I believe Adam Knight was a partner in promoting this show thus the reason he was in the main event and killing guys at the beginning of the show. Adam Knight came out first. Samoa Joe’s music played to a standing ovation. Awhile passed and no Joe. The started the music again. No Joe. They started it a have a third time and this time PCW promoter Andrew Shallcross(andrewofPCW@gmail.com or andrewofPCW@hotmail.com) came out to the most negative reaction I may have ever heard at a show.
Andrew got the mic and explained that Samoa Joe and TNA have screwed the fans. He said Samoa Joe agreed to come in and make right on his last match here but didn’t get on his plane. Andrew then called TNA a third rate company and Samoa Joe a 6th rate worker. He then explained how PCW was superior to TNA and proved it by out drawing them with their show tonight. We now know Joe was in NYC for TNA. He then brought out former WWF job guy Virgil to no reaction. He told the fans Virgil was supposed to be a surprise on the show but due to the unprofessional acts of Joe and TNA Virgil would fill in for the main event.
The match went on for 8 minutes to a chorus of boos. A lot of people actually left in disgust. Chants of “this is bullsh*t” and “we want refunds” happened throughout the match. Knight pinned Virgil after a lariat.
After the match Shallcross got on the mic again and said Knight is the new WORLD champion and if Samoa Joe and Bill Behrens didn’t like it they could go f*ck themselves. He said his door is always open if they want to take it up with him.
Such a negative way to end such a good show with such a good turn out. I won’t be surprised if they never run this town again. The sponsors couldn’t have been happy.
