11/19/15 - Thanksgiving Classic! More Matches for A Killer Xmas! The Catalyst Sends a Message!
This week's Amped tv taping started off with a battle of two of Rockstar Pro's biggest & most rugged gladiators, OI4K Inc.'s "Catalyst" Dustin Rayz vs "Mr. Reality Check" Big Jim Hutchinson! Rayz would introduce a steel chair into the ring but Big Jim prevented him from using it so the ref allowed the match to continue. Later, Rayz would sidestep Big Jim and Jim's own momentum would send him crashing headfirst into the aforementioned steel chair!
Since Rayz didn't hit him with the chair, the official, again, did not call for a disqualification. Rayz would get the pin on the dazed Hutchinson, under controversial circumstances. The victory was, apparently, not enough for "the Catalyst" who attacked Jim with the chair after the match! Rayz' assault targeted Jim's knee and Hutchinson would have to be helped to the lockerroom by officals. The well-respected OI4K Inc. gets a mixed reaction from fans but Rayz' actions earned him boos from the Rockstar Nation.
Rayz definitely sent a message that he is not here to win any popularity contests. He's here to win by any means necessary and hurt people in the process.
GRITS & GRAVY WITH A SIDE OF WINGS
In a highly anticipated 6-man tag match, Rockstar Pro Tag-Team Champions Jake Crist & Aaron Williams teamed with Alex Colon to take on former Tag-Team Champions Grits & Gravy and their partner Nate Wings. Aaron is also the current Rockstar Pro Champion, Jake and Alex are both former Rockstar Pro Champions... what an impressive team!
After an incredible match, Grits & Gravy managed to hit Jake Crist with a huge double-team maneuver! "True Grit" Bruce Grey shocked the Rockstar Nation by pinning Jake for the win! By proxy of pinning the current Tag-Team Champion, this win should put Bruce Grey & "Big Hurt" Jon Murray back in the top contender position for the Tag titles.
After the match, Grits & Gravy's partner Nate Wings was confronted by his former partner Jeremiah! Things got physical leading to "the Juggernaut" laying Wings out with a huge pop-up powerbomb! Jeremiah grabbed the mic and told the Rockstar Nation that he will finally get Nate in the ring at A Killer Xmas on December 4th! Bruce Grey's "True Grit" will be tested, this Wednesday at Amped, as he goes 1-on-1 with the Rockstar Pro Champion "Baddest Man Alive" Aaron Williams!
MATHIS & MIKAEL CONTINUE TO MANIPULATE THE LUCHACORE RULES
When "Everyone's Homie" Pompano Joe defeated Rockstar Pro Principle Owner Mikael for the American Luchacore Championship at November Coming Fire (available NOW at DIYwrestling.com), Mikael immediately forced the new Champ to defend against former Rockstar Pro Champion Ron Mathis, who went on to win the title. Under American Luchacore rules, if the action spills outside of the ring, competitors have a lucha-rules 20-count to return to the ring before being counted out. During the referee's count, there are no disqualifications, outside of the ring. Last week, against another former Rockstar Pro Champion Benjamin Kimera, Mathis took advantage of those rules with continued outside interference from Mikael. The two-on-one assault allowed Mathis to score a countout victory.
Because Kimera continued to try to fight his way back into the ring during the 20-count, Mikael has since ordered that the division's lucha 20-count be changed to a standard American 10-count. This week, former Luchacore Champ Pompano Joe got his rematch. Once again, Mathis & Mikael took advantage of the American Luchacore rules to basically turn the match into a 2-on-1 handicap match. Mikael's constant interference allowed Mathis to pick up the win to retain. After the match, Mathis & Mikael continued the 2-on-1 beatdown on Pompano Joe until their former associate Benjamin Kimera hit the ring to make the save. This Wednesday on Amped, the unlikely pairing of Kimera & Pompano Joe will take on Mathis & Mikael in tag-team action!
Two more big matches were announced for our next internet-pay-per-view taping, A Killer Xmas, on December 4th! In addition to the long-awaited grudge match between former tag partners Nate Wings and Jeremiah, it was also announced that "Best of the Best" Alex Colon will finally get his Christmas wish at A Killer Xmas, a singles match against his former manager JT Davidson! Davidson would only agree to the match under one stipulation: it will not be a standard rules wrestling match but a Dayton Street Fight!
