Bobby Hart & Sir Samurai vs Marcus Lewis & Famous B vs RockNES Monsters vs Buddy Royal & Levi Shapiro

Another time killer match between some local guys for the WPW Tag Team Title. Samurai and Hart are two fat old guys who actually turn out to be the most entertaining guys in the match, with Samurai hitting a diving senton off the entranceway and Hart killing Royal and Shapiro with hard shots and submissions. Not much cohesion here, just guys coming in and doing moves until Royal pins Lewis after hitting him in the face with a handful of powder.

Winner: Buddy Royal & Levi Shapiro

It was there and served its purpose.

It's main event time!

King Of Indies Finals: Willie Mack vs Adam Thornstowe

They shake hands, the bell rings, and we're off. They slowly circle each other and tie up, Mack rolls behind Thornstowe and fires off a kick, and thornstowe backs off to the corner and smiles before coming back to the middle to tie up with Mack. Thornstowe takes Mack to the mat with a side headlock, but Mack gets free and gets dropkicked by Thornstowe. That doesn't seem to have had much effect on Willie, who slowly comes to the middle of the ring and fires off a dropkick of his own. They trade forearms and then headbutts, and then Thornstowe boots Mack in the face twice and knocks him to the floor. Thorostowe goes for a dive, but Mack hits a leaping eniziguiri as we're already five minutes into the match. They fight their way out into the crowd and brawl all over the place and Thornstowe starts pitching chairs at Mack. Thornstowe throws Mack back over the rail, then rolls him back into the ring and hits a slingshot senton for 2. Mack reverses a whip into the corner and crushes Thornstowe with a charging clothesline, and a second hard clothesline turns Thornstowe inside out as Mack covers for 2. Thornstowe catches Mack with a Superman punch, a leaping big boot, a seris of kicks to the face, and a standing shooting star press for 2. Mack blasts Thornstowe with a pounce for 2, then connects with a moonsault for another 2. Mack tries a shoulderblock through the ropes, but Thornstowe leaps up with a double stomp to the back of Mack's head, then comes over the ropes with another double stomp for 2. Thornstowe with a climbing knee in the corner, Mack catches his boot, suplexes him into the corner, and comes off the top rope with a twisting senton...that hits nothing! Thornstowe with three superkicks, a death valley driver, but Mack kicks out at 1! Thornstowe goes back to the top and hits a frogsplash and gets the 3 count!

Winner: Adam Thornstowe

Well, guess I'm not as good at picking the outcome of indy tournaments as I am at Undertaker matches. Adam Thornstowe, who was my dark horse coming into the semis, wins the whole thing and is the 2015 King of Indies. Very dramatic finish to a great tournament. The ring fills up with other tournament participants as Thornstowe is handed the trophy, and Mack regains his feet and hugs the winner before raising his hand. Thornstowe puts on an "I am a Roland Alexander guy" t-shirt before cutting a promo I have a little trouble making out, but he sounds like he puts Roland Alexander over. Thornstowe gets hoisted up on everyone's shoulders with the trophy in hand.

There aren't many names on these shows, but this was a great tournament and was two solid nights of top notch wrestling action. If that's what you like and aren't concerned about seeing a bunch of guys you've never heard of, the two nights of King of Indies might be a good purchase for you over at
