The show kicked off an announcement that Buxx Belmar, and Mark Hazel were injured, so taking their place would be Mark Angel vs. Tim Donst. Also, Offical Speedball Mike Bailey couldn't make the show due to car troubles, so taking his place in the triple threat number one contenders match would be Lio Rush! Hollywood's Finest then hit the ring, with Kevin Murphy insisting that they would not interfere in any match all night, including their own matches. Murphy continued by saying that David Starr and JT Dunn would not interfere in each others matches or they would be suspended from Legacy Wrestling. To prove his words were true, we would start the show with Laszlo Arpad vs. Sean Carr, and he and the rest of Hollywood's Finest would leave the ringside area!
Laszlo Arpad battled Sean Carr in a fight that saw strength and power vs speed and agility. Both men took massive amounts of punishment and refused to be held down. Numerous near falls left the crowd gasping several times until Arpad managed to nail his infamous "sword of Attila" clothesline and pin the Hybrid for the victory.
Next up was Tim Donst vs Mark Angel, two Young Lion Cup winners facing off for the first time ever. Surprisingly, but maybe not, Mr. Touchdown worked over Donst's lower back. Angel seemed willing to do anything to win this match up, and had Donst on the ropes numerous times.However, the never say die spirit, that helped him beat cancer, lead Donst to the victory, by submission, over Mark Angel.
The The Wildcardz weren't sure who they would be taking on to determine who would advance to eventually face THE BLOODBOUND WARRIORS to crown the first ever Legacy tag team champions, but discovered that it would be TJ Mathis and Malek Avalon. The Wildcardz were pretty confident having to face what we all thought was a make shift team, but it was clear from the beginning that Avalon and Mathis had been training together as they showed good team work and finesse from the start. After realizing that they needed to take these two young guys seriously, the Wildcardz pulled out the victory.
David Starr would then get a shining moment as he got to take on Lucha Underground star Matt Cross (Son of Havoc). Both men wrestled as if they were in the main event of Wrestlemania and the fans were split as to who they wanted to see get the victory. Sadly, Kimber Lee interfered (thus not defying Kevin Murphy's orders that JT not do so) costing Starr the match as Cross finished him with an amazing moonsault from the top rope. Cross, unaware of Lee's interference, shook Starr's hand afterwords.
"The Juice" JT Dunn then took on Jonathan Gresham for their first ever meeting, and while the match was highly competitive, there's something about Dunn and Legacy wrestling that gels beautifully. Dunn was on fire, and even though Gresham worked over his Dunn's striking elbow, Dunn overcame it in the end and nailed a spinning elbow that knocked out the Octopus giving Dunn yet another huge victory!
In a wild three way match up to determine the number one contender to the legacy title, Eddie Smooth took on Facade and Lio Rush in match up that was so wild, so crazy, so fast, that it was at times hard to keep up with. At one point the incredible Facade walked across the entire top rope to land a flying body drop dive onto Rush and Smooth on the outside of the ring! Rush showed why he's been on fire as of late wrestling like a man possessed. However this was Eddie Smooth's night and he hit the best elbow drop in all of wrestling when he nailed his "photo finish" on Rush for the win, and will go on to face AR Fox for the Legacy title on the nest show.
Kimber Lee then defended her Legacy women's title against the colorful, fun loving, Solo Darling. Lee's reaction to Darlings zoo like get up and mannerisms kept the mood light hearted until Lee decided to turn it up a notch and take Darling to school. However, Lee got over confident, and resorted silly antics to mock her opponent. Darling then took over and it seemed that we would surely get a new women's champion. Lee however got back into her groove and pinned her wily challenger.
In the main event, Aaron AR Fox and Shane Strickland out on a match that could fit in anywhere in the world as a main event! Strickland wanted the legacy title and Fox showed a passion like I've never seen from him as the holder of that tile. Each man hit moves on each other that would have stopped anyone else in all of the business but they both refused to stay down. These men had every person in attendance on their feet chanting "this is awesome" from BEFORE the opening bell! It went to the point that it appeared that neither man could give anything else, but as they seemed to fall from the top rope in exhaustion, Fox turned it into his finisher and completed it with a 450 splash after climbing to the top rope yet again!
As the fans were celebrating Hollywood's Finest approached the ring. Fox and Strickland looked at one another and then hit dual dives through the ropes onto Smooth and Arpad! Richie Nightmare then hit the ring and took out Fox with a chair yet again, giving Arpad time to recover and take out Strickland! Smooth then climbed to the top rope and nailed his photo finish elbow on Fox and told him his time as champ is over as he will be taking HIS belt on the next show. Nightmare then said he's taken out Fox twice and wanted bigger competition. This brought Combat Zone Wrestling owner DJ Hyde to the ring. Hyde posed for selfies with the crowd and told Hollywood's Finest that if they wanted a fight, they got one! Hyde speared Smooth, and delivered his lariat to Arpad, then challenging him for the next Legacy show! Nightmare said he wants Matt Tremont on the next Legacy show, and Hyde promised him he'd get it, but he'd be sorry he asked for it!
On the next Legacy Wrestling show we will see Legacy Wrestling vs CZW!
Legacy Wrestling Results 6/6/15 Palmyra, Pa
AR Fox vs JT Dunn in a first round match in the Legacy title tournament began the night, and what a way to open the show! Dunn and Fox have wrestled a few times across the Country, and every match has been stellar, and this would be no different. Dunn, working the strong heel, did so excellently. Fox was very over with the Legacy crowd, and worked that to his advantage throughout the match. Dunn and Fox threw everything they had at each other, even while knowing that one of them would have to wrestle again later that night, but it was Fox who came out on top after hitting lo mein pain and a 450 splash for the pin
The second contest, also to decide who would advance in the Legacy title tournament, saw two of the brightest up and comers on the indy scene today, as Eddie Smooth took on Joey Janela. This match was everything I thought it would be as the two young lions tore into each other immediately and the paced never slowed. Smooth, much more familiar to this crowd, still didn’t play the face, and Janela began to receive greater appreciation the more his talent was realized. After several “please don’t die” chants from the crowd, Smooth managed to hit his “photo finish” elbow drop for the big win.
Next up Kimber Lee took on Hania The Howling Huntress to decide who would be the very first woman to be crowned the Legacy Women’s champion. In a match that stood toe to toe with any other from this evening, Kimber Lee just edged out Hania after a very hard fought and tightly contested battle of spirit and wills.
Shane Strickland and David Starr then put on what was possibly the best match of the evening, something that on a night full of matches of this caliber is very hard to determine, but these two used every kind of skill available in the art of pro wrestling to keep the crowd entertained and paying attention. From fun spots to high spots, to crowd interaction and outside interference, this match had it all. It’s too bad Dunn had to get Starr disqualified, but seeing the former “Juicy Product” bring their feud to Legacy is great!
Dunn however wasn’t satisfied to simply screw over his former friend and partner. Dunn, followed by Kimber Lee, iPhone in hand filming the entire “scene,” said he was holding the show hostage until he was put into the Legacy title match. Dunn claimed he deserved it, even though losing to AR Fox in the opening match up! Legacy General Manager Kevin Murphy didn’t seem all that bothered by Dunn’s actions, and inserted him into the finale, changing it from a Fatal Four way to a Five Pack challenge!
Legacy then decided to feature local star TJ Mathis in a gauntlet match. This was in replacement of a “Dr. Ruthless” appearance, as Ruthless was injured a few weeks ago and could not make this show. Mathis, growing in skill weekly, has an incredible look. He ran through local performers Officer Hetfield, Ark Ripper & The Masked Madder in pretty quick succession. However; DJ Hyde then ran in from the crowd and took out TJ Mathis. Hyde then grabbed the house mic and said if Legacy wants to use Combat Zone Wrestling stars on their roster, he’ll show them what CZW is all about!
The crazed, and almost rabid looking Laszlo Arpad, the wild man from Hungary that seems to have snapped since coming to Legacy wrestling, came to ringside with Miss Brianna, BooKoo Buck$ to battle veteran Gran Akuma in a Falls Count Anywhere Match. After a hotly contested fight (as this was no “match,” both men fought all over the venue) Arpad picked up the win. It’s only fair to point out that Buck$ did indeed seem to “save” Arpad at one point, pulling referee Bryce Remsberg out of the ring as he was making the three count on Arpad.
The Bloodbound Warriors then battled Team CK in a special tag team attraction to decide the No. 1 contenders for the Legacy Tag Team Titles. Carr, being the smallest man in the ring, worked the crowd like a showmen, while using his speed and cunning to avoid Red Scorpion and Greywolf as much as he possibly could. The Blood bound Warriors worked together as they always do, and while Carr and Kage didn’t show any kinks, I have to believe it was their lack of recent matches together (Carr has been doing a lot of solo work) that cost them in the end, as mis-communication lead to their downfall, allowing the Blood Bound Warriors to pick up the victory after a classic tag team battle.
Then it was time for an insane “5-pack” main event match for the Legacy Heavyweight Championship! This match, a who’s who of indy wrestling, featured AR Fox vs JT Dunn vs Eddie Smooth vs Shane Strickland vs. PJ Black! There’s no way I can recap this match and do it any kind of justice. All five men went to war, and put their bodies on the line in a “do anything you can” effort to be crowned the first ever Legacy Heavyweight Champion. Each man appeared to have the match won more than once, but with so many participants, a pin break up was always available, until Fox managed to just slightly outlast the other four men and pin Dunn (once again) to be crowned the new, and first ever, Legacy Heavyweight Champion.
Kevin Murphy came to the ring and awarded the Fox the belt, but then clotheslined him and called out Eddie Smooth, Laszlo Arpad, and BooKoo Buck$. An old nemesis of Murphy’s, local wrestler Richie Nightmare, then made his way to the ring, steel chair in hand, but nailed Fox with a ridiculously stiff chair shot and then stood silently by as Murphy, and his cohorts further attacked Fox, and gave the belt to Smooth who held it aloft and celebrated as if he had just won the title! Nightmare would not comment afterwards, and Murphy told me that all he would say is that “you keep your friends close, and your enemies even closer!” Murphy and “Hollywood’s Finest” then celebrated their actions.
Legacy Wrestling’s next event will be on Saturday August 22nd at “In the net” in Palmyra, Pa.
