EPIC: The 15 Year Anniversary Event Report
605 Fans

1.  Five-Way Scramble: Ace Romero defeated Clayton Gainz, Jimmy Jacobs, PACO and 1 Called Manders after Acey Baby hit a running elbow drop to the 1 called Manders. Jacobs was close to victory when after using the contra code/sliced bread #2 on the Romero, but then Mance Warner came out and went after Jacobs due to Jacobs leaving him bloody the last two months.  He grabbed a chair and chased Jacobs all the way to the back (9:44)


2.  David Starr (with WRSTLING) defeated Adam Brooks in his impressive AAW debut after the German suplex on the ring apron and then the Kaepernick (powerbomb to the knee).  (12:45)

3.  Three-Way Match:  Kimber Lee defeated Kris Statlander and Shazza McKenzie after a ganzo bomb on Shazza.  Much like the second match - the  two newcomers Shazza and the mysterious Statlander impressed here.  The end of the match saw Shazza hit her Shazztastic stunner on Statlander, but Kimber Lee broke up the pin and hit the ganzo for the win.   Kimber Lee commented after the match - she will take on anyone and is not afraid. (6:20)


4.  FiyahFox (AR Fox & Myron Reed) defeated Dezmond Xavier & Matt Cross after a Fox 450 splash on Cross. During the match Xavier showed off his new aggressive attitude and kept on calling Cross "Zach" (after his usual tag team partner Zachary Wentz).  After interference by Dez during the course of the match, Myron jumped from the stage and hit Dez with a cutter in the ring, which led to Fox hitting the 450 for the win.  After the match Xavier beat down his tag partner (14:05)

5.  "Man of the People" Mance Warner quickly defeated Jackson after a chair-shot and called out Jimmy Jacobs.  Jimmy came to the ring with a kendo stick, Mance quickly went under the ring and found himself kendo stick of his own and they fought.  Mance hit Jimmy repeatedly with shots with the lendo and they fought their way to the bar at 115 Bourbon street where Jimmy dove off the bar.  They rumbled to the balcony where a bachelorette party was being held, and Jimmy while on the edge of the balcony lost balance and fell off the balcony.  In the ring, Jimmy and Mance hit each other with kendo shots.  Jimmy eventually got both sticks and was going crazy with stick shots and the refs had to separate the two.  This heated issue between Mance-Jimmy is far from over. (:31)


6.  AAW Tag Team Championship Match:  LAX (Santana y Ortiz) defeated PENTA EL 0M y Gringo Loco (substitute for Rey Fenix) after a street sweeper on Gringo Loco. Rey Fenix was unable to enter the US due to a passport/visa issue but Penta introduced Chicago's favorite Luchador as his partner this evening.  Penta & Gringo made an impressive team this evening but it was too much for the AAW Tag Team Champions as they continued their winning ways (First Title Defense, 9:38)


7.  In a true HOSSFIGHT FATU (w/ Armando Alejandro Estrada) defeated Larry D after a moonsault.  A pier 6 brawl, Larry D had the advantage after a spear but the Samoan Savage was too much for the big man for Kentucky.  (5:29)


8.  Darby Allin defeated Sammy Guevara with the Last Supper (bridging leg pin).  Sammy, being a complete prick, got on the microphone before the match and reminded the AAW faithful how he promised and now has defeated Darby twice in AAW using a headlock takeover and promised to make it a third time.  During one point, Sammy went for a move and Darby got out of the way and Sammy injured his leg.  Darby worked over Sammys leg and eventually used his Last Supper to get the win.  After the match Armando Alejandro Estrada came on the house microphone saying he left something in the ring and asked FATU to grab it.  As FATU came to the stage Darby dived to meet FATU.  They brawled and FATU hit his Samoan Drop and a springboard moonsault.  Darby was severely beaten by the Samoan as Armando cackled in delight (10:53)


9.  AAW Heritage Championship:  MJF defeated DJ Z with the heatseaker pile-driver to become the 27th AAW Heritage Champion.  After saying DJZ was ducking him for months, MJF brought the fight to DJZ.  MJF interrupted DJZ's final AAW ring introduction and used his $1000 Burberry scarf and wrapped it around DJZ's throat for a near submission.  He worked over DJZs arm, including hitting a double stomp for a nearfall. DJZ came back with a pedigree but MJF had his knees up for a 450 splash.  After arguing with AAW offical Brian Stiffler,  MJF almost got rolled up for the loss.  But the man who proclaims "Talent Over Tenure" hit his piledriver for the victory.  After the match DJZ gave a moving farewell speech - he thanked the AAW for making him the wrestler he is today.  He thanked the fans for the energy that always made him want to work his harest and because of that he has been awarded the biggest opportunity of his wrestling career.  DJZ continued saying five years ago he made an impulsive decision to move to Chicago, and it was the best decision fof his career.  He might not be from Chicago, but Chicago is the city which made DJZ.  He's moving to Orando in 3 weeks but for his next journey - he will be hailing from Chicago. (10:50)


10.  BOURBON STREET FIGHT:  AAW Women's Champion Jessicka Havok & The Besties In The World (Davey Vega & Mat Fitchett) defeated WRSTLING (Curt Stallion, Eddie Kingston & Jake Something) after Davey Vega pinned Curt Stallion after a brainbuster thru a seated steel chair.  The street fight went all over 115 Bourbon Street and saw such mayhem as Jake Something gorilla pressing Mat Fitchett off a balcony, and Jessicka spearing Eddie Kingston through a table.  The battle went outside and saw Eddie Kingston get put into a dumpster, David Starr interfering but in the end it was a victory for the current AAW Women's Champion and the former tag team champions in a brutal street fight.
