Professor’s Notes: Doctor Ozone is now “a man without a country”. A new alliance is formed. Team #1 still dominant, and a new Heavyweight Champion. Quite a bit of significance in a two-hour show.  Awesome.

Match videos will be available after 10:00 p.m EST May 23rd at our YouTube channel.

Match 1. The American Nightmares (Blade Runner & Mad Dog) v. Hugo Brito & Carlos. W – The American Nightmares

There must be a section in the rookie contracts that compels them to take matches in which they have no chance of victory, and a questionable chance of survival. This was one of those matches. The American Nightmares take their time with a methodical approach that flows like a thing of beauty. While the kids did managed to inflict some arm pain and a couple of flips on Mad Dog, we couldn’t help but feel that he was humoring them. The Nightmares double body slam Hugo when they were ready to end the match with a pin from Blade Runner.

Match 2. Trash Man Rob Roberts v. Evan Blake. W – Roberts

Young Blake came out and issued an open challenge. Foolish move with Roberts standing right there. The Trash Man taught the kid the meaning of a good old-fashioned beat down. After inflicting enough pain for his liking, Rob dropped the novice on his face and mercifully pinned him.

Match 3. Last Man Standing Match: Diabolical Scott Ledeur (with Annabel) v. The Maniacal Jack Krueger. – Double Count Out

The final battle of the insane. After a brutal contest the lights went out and the disembodied voice of presumably Annabel told the men that they must unite per the brothers of the moon. Krueger and Ledeur embraced and left together. It seems that a new and bizarre team has formed.  We’ll see.

Match 4.  $5000 Bounty Match:  Big Dog Butler v. Buck Nasty. W – Butler (Count Out)

Commissioner Rocha is still sore about Buck Nasty body slamming his son, Referee Kyle Rocha. He has offered a $5000 bounty for any wrestler who defeats the giant. Nasty entered the ring and taunted both Mr. and Mrs. Rocha, saying “You take my title, I take out your kid”. Big Dog Butler took up the challenge. He is taller and at least as heavy as Nasty. The Big Dog gave Buck a scare, matching him move for move. Butler did something rarely done when he body slammed Mr. Nasty. He was conceivably on his way to the big pay day when Buck made up a lame excuse about sweat on the canvas being a slipping hazard, and left the ring area to be counted out. We assume that Butler didn’t get his cash. We have a feeling he’ll try again. Summer vacation season is upon us and we hear that a trip to Memphis is planned by Mr. Butler.

Doctor Ozone Addresses The Crowd

Doctor Ozone is a man alone. He apologized to the fans for his disloyal behavior and expressed regret at turning his back on The Fellowship who he called his “Family”. (Osiris is his nephew). The fans still hold The Manager of Champions in high esteem. We’ll see what his next move will be. We’d like to see him nurture a younger team up the ladder to a title.

Match 5. Tag Team Title Match: Team #1 (Richie Rich & Superstar Shawn Candido – Champions) v.The Fellowship (S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs & Osiris). W – Team #1

This rematch of rematches started before Doctor Ozone even left the ring. The Fellowship came out on fire and beat the tar out of Candido for the first portion of the match. S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs took exception to this ringside reporter’s positive comments on Team #1, calling him “The worst journalist in all of wrestling”. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion.  Team #1 rallied and removed Osiris from the equation. Doctor Ozone reentered the room and attempted to pull Candido off the top rope. This backfired on him, and Rich and The Superstar hit the S.O.G. right where it hurts twice in a row followed by a classic Candido stomp to the back of the head and a pin. Team #1 wins fair-and-square.

Match 6. Heavyweight Championship: Nicholas Night (C) v. Cargill Vinton. W – Cargill Vinton – New Champion

Both men were 2-time champions going into this contest. It was a high energy match fueled by the new darkness inside Cargill Vinton, and Nick Night’s anger at his friend’s betrayal. At one point Cargill was on the floor and appeared to retrieve an unknown object from under the ring. Somehow the lights went out and a flame-like object was seen for an instant. When the lights went on Nick Night was on the canvas holding his eyes with his foot on the ropes. Vinton quickly re-entered the ring and pinned the Champion, becoming Champion himself for the third time. It appeared to some that Cargill used some sort of device to blind Nick, but given the darkness we could not definitively say. In our view Vinton won this fairly. Night was led out of the room by officials complaining that he couldn’t see.  We’ll keep on this and let you know how it develops.
