It’s time! It’s time! It’s recap time! It’s getting cold outside, but the action is blazing hot inside Rockstar Pro Arena. The fight over the new Trios Championships is just around the corner, but before that we have business to attend to at Imma Be a Gangsta Forever.
Our opening contest featured the traitorous Clayton Jackson in a one-on-one match against Donovan Danhausen. Clay looked good, but he didn’t seem so confident without Wentz and Reed at his side. He and Danhausen had an impressive, hard-hitting match that established an excellent pace to kick off the show. Yeah, Clay hit the Muscliest Musclebuster Ever. Yeah, it looked great. Yeah, he won the match via pinfall. He’s still a back-stabbing jerk.
Night Ryderz (Dustin Rayz & Alex Colon) faced the pair of “The Complete Athlete” Devin Driscoll and “Hitman for Hire” Mr. Grimm in tag team action. Driscoll and Grimm are meaty wrestlers who have no trouble throwing their weight around. However, they were up against the final Rockstar Pro Tag Team Champions and nobody is safe in their presence. Mr. Grimm found out what it’s like to be across the ring from Night Ryderz when he ended up on the receiving end of a particularly nasty Ride of Death. Chalk up another W for Night Ryderz.
Our next match pitted “Everyone’s Homie” Pompano Joe against The Leader of The Foundation “True Grit” Bruce Grey (with Pat the Bruiser by his side). This was a fascinating contest between a 14 year veteran and the man who knows the rules better than anyone else. Both Bruce and Joe worked their opponent’s arm, as Bruce didn’t want to take a Homey Driver and Joe would do anything to avoid a DDT. In a brilliant bit of strategy, Pat caused a clever distraction that gave Brucey Jack the perfect chance to blast Joe with a DDT. DDT = 1-2-3! The Foundation are one of the strongest looking factions at Rockstar Pro!
Next up, it was “The Legendary” Larry D versus the soon to be dead “Kinetic” Cole Radrick. This one was fairly one-sided. Cole got in his licks, but Larry D is a tough man to keep down. Each time it appeared that Radrick might get the advantage, Larry D would rise to the occasion and put the beat-down on his pasty opponent. To cap off a truly legendary beating, D shattered Cole’s spine with a Canadian Backbreaker. That’s another win for Larry D and another indicator that Raddy dies at the end of his Dayton Street Fight at Imma Be A Gangsta Forever.
Triple Threat insanity followed featuring Nate Wings, Ace Austin... Shakespeare and “The Lost Girl” Samantha Heights. This contest was evenly matched from beginning to end. Anyone still closed-minded enough to question the quality of today’s women wrestlers need only watch Heights take on anyone in her path. All three athletes were evenly matched making this bout require just as much mental acuity as athletic prowess. Nate took the pinfall win in the end after a modified Casadora Bomb to Heights, while Ace won the battle against his collapsable cane with only minor injuries.
In a rare appearance at Rockstar Pro Arena, Tim Donst came to Dayton to go head-to-head against “The Baddest Man Alive” Aaron Williams. Donst and Williams proved to be one another’s equal throughout most of the match. The action quickly alternated between technical grappling and straightforward brawling. Donst looks faster and more dangerous every time I see him, but he was in there with a member of Night Ryderz. Williams straight up knocked out Donst with a Roundhouse Kick to cap off what was both a hard-hitting and technical contest.
The Foundation’s Pat the Bruiser took on “White Trash Messiah” Ron Mathis in more singles action. Pat has come such a long way under the tutelage of Bruce Grey, but he would face a massive challenge in Ron Mathis. While I don’t get his actions of late, I can’t deny Mathis’ strength. He lifted the massive Pat over his head to deliver an incredible ATM Piledriver to The Foundation’s biggest member to get the victory. Bruce appeared to extract a measure of revenge against Mathis, but Jon Murray stuck his nose in their business. Grey cleverly sidestepped Jon Murray’s pathetic attack to send the wrestling equivalent of a giant Christmas ham careening into Mathis’ back. Looks like Jon Murray won’t be getting that handshake he so desperately wants anytime soon.
Rockstar Pro World Champion “The Fresh Prince of Midair” Trey Miguel stepped into the ring with mic in hand. He didn’t get to say much before JT Davidson entered the ring to once against make a request of Miguel. Davidson spoke of his childhood dreams of being a World Champion. He mentioned that the clock was ticking for him to have such opportunities, while Trey was only just beginning his pro wrestling career. JT pleaded with the man he helped mold into a world champion for just one shot. No matter what the “Iron Manager” said, Trey still refused to face JT for the World Championship. I know he has his reasons, but still. Davidson is one determined bastard.
In an amazing first-time ever meeting and our main event for the evening “Hot Fiya” Myron Reed faced the sensational luchador AeroBoy! It seemed Myron overhead AeroBoy talking shit about him down in Mexico, so “Hot Fiya” entered this contest with a chip on his shoulder and determined to prove himself. This one was every bit the high-flying masterpiece the Rockstar Nation craved. Myron may have poor taste in friends, but neither his talent nor skill can be denied. Reed surprised a dazed AeroBoy with a smooth Flame On only to put the proverbial nail in the coffin with a 450 Splash from the top turnbuckle. Myron wins again. Whoopty freakin’ doo.
