Results for the sold out BWP Tag Team Turmoil show held in Abergele, North Wales on Saturday 23rd January 2010.
SPECIAL GUEST MATCH – UNBILLED
Johnny Rose v Mandrake (Irish Whip Wrestling Heavyweight Champion)
This unbilled match was a last minute addition to the Tag Team Turmoil show, the current Irish Whip Heavyweight Champion, Mandrake took on the popular English brawler, Johnny Rose.
These 2 big mean battled for around 15 minutes, the fans clearly showing support for the Englishman as they heckled and booed the Irish Champion.
However, regardless of the fans distractions, Mandrakes superior power was too much for Rose and he finished him off and got the 3 count from a roll up pin, and fully utilising the ropes for leverage.
The Justice Circle v ShockWave
The match started out well for the Justice Circle, as G-Man and Seb Winterz managed to fend off the super-heavyweight Phoenix and Motivator. Motivator was somewhat distracted by a pork-pie that he had hidden in his not-so-flattering bright green leotard. That pork pie must have given Motivator some motivation as he was able to beat down the fan favourite G-Man.
At one point, ShockWave had G-Man tied up in their corner, using G-Mans pink feather boa to choke him out – with referee Tom Ball distracted trying to split this up – BWP World Catchweight Champion El Destello ran to ringside and took out Seb Winterz – Destello savagely attacked Winterz with his Singapore Cane – pounding Sebs shoulder several times leaving the big man rolling on the floor in clear pain. Fortunately, Justice Circle member, Jim ‘The Metal’ King, who was not booked on the show, was in attendance in the crowd and ran to the aid of his partner. Jim chased off the Champ and returned to assist Seb who was in desperate need of some medical attention. The G-Man and referee Tom Ball temporarily stopped the match whilst Seb was carried out of the venue to be taken to the local hospital.
The match then continued as a 2 on 1 battle – no matter how much heart or passion G-Man has and no matter what he tried to fight off these 2 monsters, it was not enough, after 2 ring shaking avalanche splashes into the corner, Phoenix hit a devastating J-Driver on The Prince of Pink – enough was enough – Phoenix pinned a courageous G-Man for the win.
Storm v The Word Association with Rudy Wynne
The Word Association met one of the newest and youngest tag teams to enter the BWP – Storm, made up of Element and Demoni. Lord Graham Thomas and Marcus King certainly gave the newcomers a Word Association welcome as they battered and beat them in their usual manner. However, the W.A. members were clearly not prepared for Storms own offensive material, as Storm took the W.A. to the limit, almost gaining a couple of near pins on Rudys men.
As much as Storm tried, and as much as the crowd got behind the youngsters, it was not enough to put them over on the experienced Word Association as LGT finished off Element with a steal chain to the head after Rudy Wynne distracted the referee and handed LGT the foreign object.
Winner: The Word Association
Zack n Jack Attack v The New TranSiberien Express
This match saw the return of the evil and sinister Night Stalker as he reformed The New TranSiberien Express, this time, his new tag team partner completing the Russian duo was Springbok who soon made it obvious that he was as demented and sickening as Stalker.
The reformed duo went face to face with the aerial masters Zack n Jack Attack – Zack Diamond and Jack Lightening. The match was very high paced and high impact as the Russians fought tooth and nail to make their mark on the BWP Tag Team Turmoil by beating one of the most popular tag team duo’s in British history. Although their efforts were impressive, they were not good enough to stop the Zack n Jack Attack as they picked up the victory and prevented the new TSE from making their mark!
Winner: Zack n Jack Attack
BWP WORLD CATCHWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Brad ‘The Knock-Out’ Matthews v El Destello (Champion) with Rudy Wynne and UnaMannera
Before this match kicked off, BWP General Manager ‘The Word’ Rudy Wynne informed the Abergele crowd that he was not happy with the choice of referee for the match, as senior referee Tom Ball was to familiar and friendly with El Destellos opponent, Brad Matthews. After publicly dismissing Tom Ball Rudy introduced the newest BWP referee to the ring, a fair and impartial official that will have no problem with calling the match down the middle … Mr Phil Race. Phil Race entered the ring and quickly showed exaclt how ‘impartial’ he would be as he shook the hands of Rudy Wynne, El Destello and UnaMannera only to turn away from Brad Matthews as he extended his hand to welcome the new ref.
As the match was about to start – out walked The G-Man to the stage, who approached the commentators table and sat alongside BWP commentator Jay Sinclair. G-Man informed the crowd and Rudy that he was there to watch the back of Matthews, as he knew first hand what The Word Association is capable of doing, especially now they have their own referee on board!
Rudy asked for the bell to ring to start the match – however this was again delayed as Jim ‘The Metal’ King entered the ring from him ringside seat that he was forced to pay for having been dropped from the Tag Team Turmoil show by Rudy Wynne. An irate Wynne demanded to know why King was there … only to be cut off by The Metal who told Rudy to shut up and listen! Jim informed Rudy that he knows why he was cut from the show – because The Word Association is scared of Jim and The Justice Circle … and he knows that Rudy was behind the earlier attack on his partner Seb Winterz. Rudy denied these allegations and asked The Metal to leave his ring. Jim then said that he thought he should be involved in this show, as its his hometown, and that he should be entered into this title match as a third entrant! As the crowd cheered for Jims proposal Rudy informed Jim that it was not going to happen, however as Rudy is a fair person, he would allow King to enter the Lethal Lottery match as The G-Mans partner seeing that Seb wasn’t able to compete and that Jim needs to make sure that he is on the winning team if he wants a title shot, as the surviving team members in the Lethal Lottery would proceed to a number one contenders match next month at the BWP Rural Rumble. Jim accepted this offer, and told Rudy ‘Justice will be served!’.
Finally, the bell was rung and the match took place … Matthews had a strong following of fans raising the roof, this was clearly distracting to Destello as he seemed reluctant to tie-up with Matthews. Destello, Rudy, UnaMannera and Phil Race pulled out all of the stops to put Brad Matthews down, all of them were involved in this gang beat down … but it was not enough for them to gain the upper hand as a defiant Brad Matthews overcame the odds and managed to take out Destello with his impressive ‘never die’ attitude. At one point, Destello decided to whip Matthews into his own referee knocking Phil Race clean out – this showed that the pressure was on the Champ to do whatever it took to retain his title. As Destello claimed his trusty Singapore Cane to drive into Matthews head, it showed that Matthews had done his homework and managed to dodge the attack and put Destello down with a number of brutal MMA style punches and kicks. Brad then went up top and hit the Lethal Luchador with a face crushing flying fame-asser.
As the ref was down, and Brad was pinning a beaten Destello, referee Tom Ball stormed to the ring as the fans chanted ‘bring back Tom’ … Tom hit the 1 … 2 … but UnaMannera managed to reach into the ring and break the 3 count! The audience were in chorus of disapproving chants as Brad and Destello both got to their feet – Destello charged at Brad who managed to side step the Champ – and locked in a rear choke hold on the Champ! As Destello screamed in pain and tried to get to the ropes, Matthews locked in the move even harder, forcing El Destello to tap out to Brad Matthews!!
The crowd went wild as Brad Matthews, who had ALL of the odds against him, was announced as New BWP World Catchweight Champion!! Tom Ball raised the new Champions arm as The G-Man hit the ring and handed Brad his new title belt!
The celebrations were short lived however, as referee Phil Race ripped the belt off Brad Matthews and argued with Tom Ball. Rudy Wynne entered the ring and announced, as Phil whispered into his ear, that Brad Matthews had won the belt using an illegal move, choke holds were not permitted in the BWP – also referee Tom Ball was not the official referee for the match and Brad Matthews had purposely attacked Phil Race – therefore Tom Balls decision was nil and void and Phil Race was disqualifying Brad Matthews! Therefore still BWP World Catchweight Champion, El Destello!!!
The Abergele crowd were outraged – Brad and Tom remained in the ring arguing with referee Phil Race as The G-Man chased Destello, Rudy and UnaMannera to back stage.
Winner: El Destello (by DQ)
LETHAL LOTTERY 12 MAN TAG MATCH
As all tag teams entered ringside for this historic match – Referee Tom Ball invited 12 fans from the crowd to select a number from the bag to determine which Superstars would team together in this 12 Man Elimination Tag Match. The surviving members of the winning team would be entered into the Number 1 Contenders match for the BWP World Catchweight title next month at the BWP Rural Rumble show in Denbigh, North Wales.
The fans selected from random the following teams:
Lord Graham Thomas
Jim ‘The Metal’ King
All tag teams, with the exception of Storm and ShockWave, were split up for this match. It was strange seeing the King Brothers (formerly tag team SuperNatural) on the same team and The G-Man and Lord Graham Thomas on the same team! Something the BWP Nation would never have expected to see, and something the individual Superstars did not want to occur.
Jim King stood alone from his ‘team mates’ as they tried every dirty tactic in the book to get the win, as did Lord Graham Thomas, who refused to assist any of his team at any point. When the tables were turned later on in the match and LGT needed to tag out of the match – the entire Team A stepped down from ringside leaving LGT to take even more of a beating.
The final 3 men in the ring were LGT and the unlikely duo of Jim and Marcus King … although the numbers were in favour of Team B … Marcus showed his true colours as he and his opponent for the match, LGT, battered Jim – however Jim got his revenge as he KO’d his own brother and partner and hit LGT with a ????? forcing LGT to land on top of his W.A. member, and eliminating him from the match!
LGT and Jim King then battled for the winning spot, and to be the sole survivor of this amazing match. It looked as if both men had the match won at different points, however LGT put up a great offence and defence throughout the ending of the match, but it was not enough to fend off King who was on fire – Jim managed to hit LGT with a rear sleeper, causing the Lord to tap out!!
Winner: Team B – Sole Survivor Jim ‘The Metal’ King
