GREAT MUTA & TOMMY DREAMER VS. ELGIN & IMPACT, PHILLY STREET FIGHT & MORE: COMPLETE IMPACT WRESTLING/HOUSE OF HARDCORE 'A NIGHT YOU CAN'T MIST' COVERAGE FROM PHILADELPHIA

By Mike Johnson on 2019-06-08 23:08:00

Joey Ryan came out for his “Touch it or Suck It” match against Billy Gunn.

D’Lo Brown came out and said Billy Gunn had transportation issues and the match will not take place.  He said they would reschedule the match soon and offered a handshake to Ryan.

Ryan tried to make him touch it, so D’Lo nailed a series of punches and went for the Sky High but was blocked.  Ryan made him touch it and D’Lo took the “d*** flip.”

I am told Gunn had legitimate travel issues and spent all day trying to juggle flights to get here and as late as 7 PM, he was still on a runway.

Tommy Dreamer did a promo backstage saying he's teamed with legends like Steve Williams, Terry Gordy and Terry Funk but tonight he gets to team with one of his heroes when The Great Muta makes his debut.

The Great Muta was last out, to PYRO!  Huge pop for him and the fans chanted “Thank you Muta!” just for being there.

Dreamer and Elgin started off.  Elgin tried to use his power to intimidate Dreamer.  Dreamer went for a shoulderblock but was kicked in the gut as he rebounded off the ropes.  Dreamer reversed a whip but was shoulderblocked down with authority by Elgin.  The crowd was all over Elgin chanting “F*** that guy.”

Impact tagged in and faced off with Dreamer.  Impact mooned a fan giving him a static.  He and Dreamer went back and forth as a fan kept giving Taya crap.  Dreamer had enough and took the mic and said this is Philly, but it’s also where the most respectful fans are.  He told the fan to chill out and enjoy The Great Muta or he was going to have The Sandman cane his ass.  He then put over Muta huge on the mic and tagged him in.  The crowd chanted for Muta.

Muta and Impact started to wrestle.  The fan must have done something I didn’t catch before security came and tossed him out.  Muta worked over Impact with a headlock.  Muta controlled Impact and tagged out to Dreamer.  They nailed double elbow smashes.  Dreamer nailed an elbow, setting up Muta doing his trademark corkscrew elbow.  The place went nuts and chanted for Muta.

Impact came back to nail the Moonlight Drive on Dreamer.  Elgin and Impact worked over Dreamer for a long time.  Elgin held Dreamer up in the air for a long time for a delayed vertical suplex.    Muta tried to hit the ring with a broom but was stopped by the referee.  Elgin missed a twisting moonsault.  The crowd rallied Dreamer to make the hot tag.

Muta tagged in and he nailed several dropkicks on Elgin, then the dragon screw legwhip.   Muta locked on a kneebar bar on Impact but Elgin broke it up.  Dreamer hit the ring but was knocked out of the ring. Muta avoided a clothesline and nailed a big knee strike.

Bravo got in the ring and confronted Dreamer.  He nailed the DDT on him but Impact nailed a running knee strike and a standing moonsault press for a two count.  Impact and Elgin worked over Dreamer with double team moves.  Impact covered Dreamer, who kicked up at the last second.

They went for a double suplex but Muta returned to the fray and began nailing everyone.  All four brawled to the floor.  Dreamer grabbed the ECW replica belt and nailed Elgin and Impact with it.  Elgin worked over Muta on the floor.  Dreamer pulled a table out from under the ring.  Dreamer tossed Impact into the corner and then Elgin into the ringpost.

Dreamer placed Elgin on a table on the floor and nailed the Spicoli Driver on Impact, putting him through the table and Elgin.  The place exploded and chanted for ECW.   Dreamer attempted to hit another Spicoli Driver on Impact but Taya slid it and nailed a lowblow on him.  Impact went to hit Dreamer with the Red X but Muta spewed red mist in his face.  Big pop for that.

Elgin grabbed Dreamer but Muta spewed the green mist in his face.  Taya hit the ring but was trapped between Muta and Dreamer.  Dreamer spewed water in her face and DDT’d her.    Muta nailed the shining wizard on Impact and scored the pin.

Your winners, Tommy Dreamer and The Great Muta!

Real good match with everything you’d want to see out of Muta in the Arena.  Very entertaining main event and a very good show overall.

Dreamer took the mic and said the fans have been his family for a long time.  He said when he started wrestling, he didn't want to go to WWF, but to go to All Japan or New Japan because of the unbelievable storytelling and work ethic.  He wanted to be a combination of Sting and Great Muta and paint his face and call himself Tommy Acid.  Johnny Rodz took him and said he was too good looking to paint his face and told him if he didn't come up with another name or he'll be Tommy d***head.  He said instead there was no Tommy Acid.  He said that instead he got to have that same work ethic in ECW.  He told Muta he teamed with Terry Funk, Dr. Death and other legends and he had a hell of a debut and he is welcome in his home, House of Hardcore, any time.   He said that he wants Muta to understand how much America loves him and thanked him so much.

Muta and Dreamer shook hands and celebrated their win.  The crowd chanted for Muta.  Muta headed to the back.

Dreamer said this has been an amazing time.  He said as wrestling fans, we are now blessed and we saw the debut of AEW and that was amazing, then we saw NXT and that was amazing.  New Japan Dominion is probably going on.  Will Ospreay and the Super Juniors was amazing.  Dreamer said he has three contracts he is looking at and the next time HOH is here, they'll be on a much bigger platform.

That’s all from Philadelphia!  Thank you for your support of PWInsider.com!!!!!
