American Revolution Wrestling – The Odeon Concert Club – Cleveland, Ohio – June 20, 2015
(This is another show that I attended prior to launching Super No Bueno. ARW was a short-lived promotion based in NE Ohio. They ran a series of events at minor league ballparks before folding.)
Purple Reign (Cassidy Stone & Ganon Jones Jr.) v. Cleveland Curse (Rex Brody & Nicholas Valentino)
Purple Reign won when Stone hit a leg off the top for the pin. Generation Dead destroyed Purple Reing after the bell.
Winners: Purple Reign
Purple Reign v. Generation Dead (Gory & G. Raver)
Gory pinned Jones after Raver hit a double-knee to the back.
Winners: Generation Dead
Patrick Hayes v. Jack Pollock
Pollock pinned Hayes, but Hayes’ foot was on the bottom rope. The match was re-started. Hayes won with a Frog splash. (Note: Pollock is legit. Good look. Solid Worker. He has a future.)
Winner: Patrick Hayes
J-Rocc v. Bryan Bowers
Bowers rolled through a slam for the pin. J-Rocc did a great job of working the Cleveland crowd.
Winner: Bryan Bowers
Dylan Bostic (w/ Ray Lyn) v. Matt Cross
Cross won with a gorgeous shooting star press.
Winner: Matt Cross
The crowd has been hot all evening.
Ray Lyn McAwesome (w/ Dylan Bostic) v. Marti Belle
Belle won after Bostic botched a distraction spot. Marti is so damn fine.
Winner: Marti Belle
N8 Mattson v. Sonny Vice
Mattson wins after a leg drop off of the top rope. Mattson is one of the most well-rounded wrestlers in the tri-state area. He is a mechanic in the ring. I love watching him toy with the audience.
Winner: N8 Mattson
The Bev v. Shane Douglas
Douglas pinned The Bev after a belly-to-belly suplex onto a chair. Douglas then cut a great promo remembering his fallen brothers from ECW’s Triple Threat: Bam Bam Bigelow and Chris Candido. He tossed up three fingers as his theme song (“Perfect Strangers” by Deep Purple) played.
Winner: Shane Douglas
Kriss Stark v. Facade v. Sabu
This one was full of table and chair spots. Stark took a nasty bump on a chair from Facade. He later took an Arabian Facebuster through a table from Sabu. Facade again drove him through a table for the finish. Stark stayed down for a few minutes after the ring emptied. It seemed as if he had been legitimately injured by the first chair spot.
