03.15.08 - DETAILED MARCH 14th RESULTS-
- Here are detailed results of last nights event, courtesy of Shawn O'Vincent:
Top Rope Promotions "The Anniversary"
Friday night 3/14/08 - Police Athletic League Hall in Fall River, Massachusetts
Ring Announcer: Shawn O'Vincent
Referees: Tony S. and Zac Carter
Top Rope Wrestling commentators: Shane Matthews, "Gorgeous" Gino Giovanni, and Shawn O'Vincent
1. "The Lebanese Prince" Jihad Islamabad over The Kreeper. Jihad was clearly upset at the crowd for chanting "USA! USA! USA!" while he was praying and bowing down to whoever it is that he prays to.
2. Dan Strikes & Mikko scored a major upset over The Metro Men (Beautiful Bryce & Miracle Mike with The Guy). The Guy got involved and wanted a chair to be used as a weapon. This backfired on him and caused Bryce to get pinned after being distracted by The Guy. The Guy was clearly upset at the loss, and said that he is tired of aligning himself with losers. The Guy then introduces "a real winner" in B.K. Jordan. During an exchange of words, and when Miracle Mike seemed to be on Bryce's side, Mike attacked Bryce from behind...with The Guy and B.K. joining in. Bryce wound up taking a vicious chair shot to the head. The Fall River crowd was stunned that the Metro Men have clearly broken up. B.K. then called out his opponent for the next match...Jason Blade.
3. B.K. Jordan over Jason Blade, followed by a post-match attack on Jason by B.K., The Guy, and Miracle Mike.
4. Heavyweight Champ "Heavenly Johnny Angel & WWE Hall of Famer Tito Santana over Tag Team Champs The Stroke ("The Ladies Man" Gregory Edwards & "H20" Ryan Waters). This match was originally scheduled as a championship defense for Johnny vs. Tito. About three minutes into the match, The Stroke came out to crash the party...and said they deserved to be on the show...and that both Johnny and Tito were both "washed up." Johnny and Tito then joined forces to face The Stroke...and Johnny and Tito came out victorious. Open mouth and insert foot for The Stroke.
5. Interstate Champ Freight Train & Big Daddy Bravo over "Gorgeous" Gino Giovanni & Alex Payne, when Freight Train pinned Gino. During the match, Freight Train seemed to be busy eating candy and snacks instead of paying attention to the action. After the match, Bravo was upset at Freight Train losing concentration on the match...and turned on him...with Alex Payne joining in the fracas. Both invited Gino to get his shots in, but he declined. But Gino attacked Bravo and Alex instead. Gino wound up "covering up" Freight Train in the end...when Freight was pretty much out of it.
6. Lea Morrison (with Buck Nasty) over Barbie. After the match, Lea and Buck shoot their mouths off, basically saying how great they are, and Spike Dudley comes out to respond. Spike wasn't even in the ring yet when The Guy, Miracle Mike, and B.K. Jordan came out, and attacked Spike from behind. The Guy's clan aligned themselves with Lea and Buck to form an alleged "New Generation" of stars. Spike was left laying in a pool of blood after taking several chair shots to the head.
7. Shane & Eric Alden over Those 80s Guys (Vince Beach & Reed James).
8. WWE Legends "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka & Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake over The Guy, B.K. Jordan, Miracle Mike, Lea Morrison, & Buck Nasty. Originally, the match was supposed to be Beefcake vs. Snuka...but The Guy and the rest of his clan decided to interrupt the match. The Guy claimed it was time to be out with the old and in with the new. The Guy's and his new friends stormed the ring, but Beefcake and Snuka proved too much for this so-called "New Generation." We even saw Snuka do his famous splash...from the middle rope. The referee then declared Snuka and Beefcake the winners!
TRP returns to the PAL Hall on Friday 4/11/08...with a match that has been at least 700 days in the making: Brutus Beefcake vs. Greg Valentine! The Metro Men will also do battle: Miracle Mike vs. Beautiful Bryce!
