Excellent old school match with Kid bringing some kickass flying. NC was well represented today.p>Matt Tremont vs. Latin Dragon vs. Rory Mondo, presented by CZW.
Tremont overpowered the others when he locked up with them. Everyone is wearing "Wrestling Fears CZW" shirts. They sent Tremont to the outside. Mondo went for a dive through the ropes but caught his legs on the ropes and nearly died. How he was OK is beyond me, but he was. He came back to hit an Arabian Press on Dragon.
Tremont returned to the fray and began beating the piss out of both men. He nailed Dragon with a Facewash, then did the same to Mondo. Mondo went for a flying head scissor but slipped, so he ended up taking a back suple to the floor. Dragon hit a dive over the top on both.
Dragon continued to work over Mondo but was caught with a big head and arms suplex by Tremont. Tremont chopped away at Mondo. Mondo fought back and drilled Tremont with a double stomp off the top. Dragon caught him with a full nelson suplex and went to the top for a 450 splash. Tremont came off the top with a frog splash on both as Dragon tried to pin Mondo, then powerbombed Dragon for the pin.
Your winner, Matt Tremont!
Good match but man some of those spots scared me. Mondo is lucky not to be dead.
Wrestling Is Art presents Colt Cabana vs. Mike Quackenbush
They battled back and forth with some nice counter wrestling. Cabana pulled out some trademark silliness. Quackenbush tied up Cabana on the mat but was caught in flying head scissors. Quack finally bounced his way out of it and landed on his feet.
Quack began working over Cabana's arm but Cabana rolled to the mat and kicked him off. They did a series of reversals, leading to Cabana cinching in a rear chinlock. The crowd rallied Quack.
They went into some fun Johnny Saint inspired British comedy and takedowns. It was awesome. They went into a great back and forth series of pinfall combinations.
They continued going back and forth until Cabana shocked the entire place getting the pin with a forward roll. They shook hands after. Great match that was a totally different spin on pro wrestling.
Your winner, Colt Cabana!
After the bout, Bill Apter came out to present an award to Cabana for being the ambassador for independent pro wrestling. That is certainly a deserved honor. Cabana said that everyone came here because they love pro wrestling. He said when he was a kid, he read the old Pro Wrestling Illustrated issues and had a dream to be one of those heroes, so he's touched that he gets to come full circle and get an award from Bill and give something back to pro wrestling means the world to him. He told a story about going to WWE and being treated like crap but coming back and being welcomed with open arms by the family that is independent wrestling. He said that indy wrestling isn't a taboo but a family and it has some of the best athletes and performers in the world. Great speech.
