Buckle up, buttercups! It’s time for another recap of all the kick ass in-ring action from Rockstar Pro Wrestling’s Amped. We’re halfway through October and rocketing toward November’s Don’t Stop Believing! Rivalries are heating up, and every single wrestler in the locker room is keeping an eye on Dustin Rayz. Will he be able to fend off Larry D next month, or would “The Destroyer” take down the champ tonight?
The night began with Ace Austin in the ring bitching about how he rarely defeats Clayton Gainz. Clay joined him to agree that, yes, Ace truly has difficulties taking down the big man. Ace then challenged Clay to one more match, but Gainz had other ideas. Clayton didn’t just accept the challenge. He upped the ante! He called for a Best of Seven Series, and the deal was done. Later in the evening we’d have the first of the series in the ring.
The first match pitted “Legendary” Larry D against “Pure Trash” Ron Mathis in a head-to-head collision. Holy shit! If you still haven’t subscribed to Rockstarpronetwork.com for a mere five bones a month, this match alone is worth the price of admission. The two monsters beat the living hell out of one another. Larry went for a KO Punch at ringside, but Mathis ducked causing Larry to punch the ring post as hard as possible! This gave Mathis the chance to target Larry’s right hand. That he did, even biting Larry’s knuckles. Mathis showed off his amazing strength lifting Larry into the air multiple times, even hitting “Legendary” Larry with an ATM Piledriver! Larry somehow kicked out of the cover and landed a Knockout Punch to win the match. Afterward, Bruce Grey confronted Mathis and added The Administration to Mathis’ match at Don’t Stop Believing!
Triple threat singles action followed when Alex Colon, “Bare Knuckle Berserker” Lord Crewe, and “The Process” Malcolm Monroe III went at it. MM3 brought the speed and agility. Crewe brought the heavy fists. Colon brought everything else! The former(?) Night Ryder is on a roll, bringing the most unique offense ever to his matches. In fact, he took the victory with a double submission that I’ve never seen before! Alex simultaneously locked in the Camel Clutch on Monroe AND a Boston Crab on Crewe! Both men tapped, and Alex continues to look great!
The two visiting wrestlers from DDT Pro teamed up to face two Rockstar Pro originals in tag team action. It was “The Blazing Raze” Rekka and Yoshimura facing the pair of “The Hawkeye” 1 Called Manders and “Um... What?” Pompano Joe. Despite fighting tooth and claw for the past three weeks, Rekka and Yoshimura worked very well together. Meanwhile, Manders did not seem very pleased to be teaming up with Joe. Yoshimura and Manders proved to be perfect foils to one another with similar builds and wrestling styles. It was Rekka, however, who secured the victory for team DDT Pro with a Flying Armbar that forced Manders to submit. Perhaps we’ll see these two talented young performers in the Rockstar Pro Arena in the future.
Our next contest was a three corners tag team match. Rockstar Pro Tag Team Champions The Dirty (“Bulletproof” Brandon Edwards & “Cutthroat” Austin Manix) took on The Administration (“Executive Secretary of Defense” Mr. Boone & “Executive Secretary of Offense” Mr. Bruise) and Thrill & the City (Will the Thrill & Pav City). Both Will and Pav looked good in their comeback to Rockstar Pro, but they were in the ring with some serious heavy hitters. The Administration made their President proud, but The Dirty came for a fight. In the end, Edwards and Manix teamed up to hit Pav with the Dreamkiller for the pin and the win. The Dirty continue to look strong on the top of the tag team mountain at Rockstar Pro!
As JP was JPing in the ring, “Reborn” Aaron Williams accosted him and grabbed his microphone. Just as the abuse of JP began, “Lost Girl” Samantha Heights came in to save his sorry ass! She beat on Aaron will furious rage, but Williams outmuscled her in little time. He talked down to a humiliated Heights, calling her “sweetheart” on multiple occasions. I’m not entirely sure what’s going on in Williams’ head, but I’m definitely staying out of his way.
The Best of Seven Series between “Too Swoll to Control” Clayton Gainz and “The Ace of Spades” Ace Austin began with the next match! You’ll be able to see this one on YouTube.com/rockstarpro, so I’m not going into too much detail here. What matters is that Clayton won with a quick Schoolboy to pin Ace’s shoulders to the mat for the 1-2-3! Did he have a handful of trunks? I certainly didn’t see it. What a contest!
Our main event was a singles match for the Rockstar Pro Wrestling World Championship. Reigning champion “The Catalyst” Dustin Rayz defended against “The Destroyer” Jeremiah. Before the match began, Jeremiah was quick to remind Dustin that Rayz had never once defeated Jeremiah in singles competition. “The Destroyer” came into this one confident that he would end the night as three-time Rockstar Pro World Champion. The two went back-and-forth with incredible strikes and power moves. Jeremiah looked well positioned to make good on his promise to become champion, but Rayz would not stay down. Dustin hit a magnificent Catalyst Driver to keep Jeremiah down for three seconds. With that Rayz not only retained his World Championship but also defeated Jeremiah in a one-on-one match for the first time ever! Rayz is looking incredibly threatening as the man on top, but Larry D is determined to take that title away in a matter of weeks.
