The pro/am MMA card featured several grappling matches that showcased the submission part of MMA. Don’t miss this show as the most talented fighters from Arkansas and the surrounding states step into the cage to do battle.
In the main event, for the #1 Contender spot in the featherweight division, Jacob Hobby (5-1) defeated Johnathan Chitwood (13-7) via majority decision in a wild fight. In the first round Hobby and Chitwood worked in the clinch for the majority of the round as Chitwood tried to use his wrestling and drop levels in hopes of getting Hobby off of his feet. Hobby went for a standing kimura in the clinch which made Chitwood have to defend. Chitwood attempted several takedowns and was relentless in getting Hobby down to the mat, if only briefly, as Hobby would bounce back up in a couple seconds to close out an even first round. In round two, Hobby scored with jabs and overhand rights as Chitwood went back to wrestling but it was Hobby who got the takedown. Hobby did everything he could to get Chitwood to tapout including attempting a crossface and rear naked choke, while also securing a body triangle to keep Chitwood on the mat. In the final round, Hobby scored with a nice right while Chitwood countered with a takedown but Hobby was quickly back to his feet. Chitwood scored with knees to the thigh of Hobby as well as foot stomps. Chitwood continued to grind away at Hobby against the fence using his wrestling and controlling the fight. Hobby scored a takedown and landed some shots in the guard for the last minute of the fight and secured the win.
In the co-main event, Justin Rice defeated Mitchell Hal via heel hook in the first round of a grappling match in the welterweight division. In the first round, after grappling on their feet, Rice went for an armbar on the mat before transitioning to an ankle lock attempt followed by a heel hook that got the tapout victory in quick order.

In the main event, Freddy Pontoriero (2-0) defeated Alex Paterno (1-10) via kimura in round two of a lightweight scrap. Pontoriero got an immediate takedown and was very active in looking to advance his position but Paterno got the fight to his guard. Paterno went for an armbar from the bottom but Pontoriero broke free and fought to side control. Pontoriero went for an armlock from this spot but Paterno defended as Pontoriero transitioned to a guillotine choke from the mount as the round ended after a great first round of grappling. In round two, they started out striking with Paterno scoring with an overhand right and knee to the midsection while Pontoriero countered with an uppercut. They continued to trade until Pontoriero got another takedown as Paterno went for a guillotine. While still in the guillotine, Pontoriero moved to mount, broke free from the choke and isolated Paterno’s left arm where Pontoriero sunk in a kimura lock. Pontoriero moved to side mount and was able to get the leverage on the hold to get the tapout in a great fight.
In other action, Trevor “The New York Strangler” McGovern (4-0) defeated Sang Son (2-1) via rear naked choke in the first round.

Son looked for more leg kicks as McGovern countered with an overhand right. McGovern got the takedown where he worked from half guard scoring with body punches. Son moved to his stomach to try and defend the punches as McGovern sunk in the fight ending choke.

Muay Thai is back as United South East Asia Cultural Association (USEACA) presented “Showdown 5″, full contact Muay Thai at the Youth Center in Olympia, Washington. If you love the striking game, this is the event for you as it featured 15 high octane fights. This was the debut event for USEACA on GFL.tv and it was a smash hit with several back and forth battles. Get ready for the science of the 8 limbs as “Showdown 5” comes to GFL.
The main event was a back and forth war with Criscarlo Chua from WKX Vancouver, Canada defeating Brandon Beck from Portland Thai Boxing in Oregon via unanimous decision to win the Pacific NW 117 lb Title. Chua was the stockier fighter and needed to leap in at times to score with punches and kicks as Beck used his length and kept his distance and scored from a distance particularly with body kicks in the early going. This main event delivered in every way as it was total nonstop action from bell to bell. Beck was also strong in the clinch, tossing Chua to the mat several times to break up his rhythm, but Chua showed his power scoring with overhand rights and left hooks that did damage to Beck. Chua had a solid game plan as he countered effectively and as the fight wore on his strikes seemed to find their mark more efficiently than Beck who to his credit was always coming forward looking to scrap.
In the co-main event, Daniel Olson of Muay Thai Kai Singthong defeated Nathan Sutterfield from Dan Burks from Camp via TKO in the fifth round to win the Pacific NW 160 lb Championship. Both fighters were in the traditional Muay Thai stance with Olson scoring with solid leg kicks as Sutterfield found his mark with hooks and straight right hands. Olson used his reach advantage to also score with push kicks to the midsection of Sutterfield as he continued his attack on the body and legs of Sutterfield. In the fourth round, Olson opened up more as he was able to counter Sutterfield’s hooks and straight hands with his own as they both went back and forth including trading shots in the clinch. Olson mixed up his leg attacks with his upper body strikes. In the fifth and final round, Olson opened up even more by throwing some head kicks, knees, as well as scoring with his push kicks and body kicks. Olson landed a knee to the body of Sutterfield that sent him against the ropes then followed up with an overhand right that dropped Sutterfield and ended the fight in the fight of the night.

“IZW Adrenaline” returned to GFL.tv with another weekly, 2-hour, live and free episode of top notch wrestling as a revitalized Impact Elite looked to continue its dominance in IZW. The Impact Arena has become a warzone and anyone stepping into the ring better be ready for the battle of their life as was the case on the November 16 episode. If you missed the show live, no problem as “IZW Adrenaline” is now FREE on GFL.tv every Saturday night and can also be watched on GFL On Demand in the days and weeks following the event!
Things started off with a bang as “Bad” Brad Michaels (@OldSchool_Brad) delivered a full force super kick to Double D (@IZWDoubleD) in the backstage area. The feud between Michaels and D didn’t end at “Halloween Hangover”, if anything it has only gotten more heated. D crumbled to the concrete ground and this set the tone for the rest of the night as every wrestler was looking to not only defeat their opponent but demolish them.
In the opening bout, new Queen’s Crown Champion Miss Diss Lexia (@missdiss_lexia) wrestled former Champ Madame Commissioner Erica (Lady_Of_Impact) with the title up for grabs. This was MDL’s first title defense and she started out with a bang by giving Erica a drop toe hold followed by pulling down the top rope as Erica went flying outside of the ring. When action resumed in the ring, Erica grabbed a nice side headlock then dipped down with a fireman’s carry putting MDL on the canvas where Erica isolated an arm as she put her mat skills to use. MDL transitioned back to her feet where she broke free and even went for a victory roll pin attempt showing off her grappling repertoire as her and Erica traded pin attempts on the mat in a bit of one-upmanship. Erica started to gain the edge with her wrestling and other various chokes and kicks, not to mention Mark Wilson (@bsstallion) who stacked the deck in favor of Erica by hitting MDL numerous times with cheap shots on the outside. Just when it looked like Miss Diss Lexia was on her last leg, she battled back with a drop kick, clothesline, body slam and butterfly suplex that turned the tide. MDL next slapped the hell out of Wilson who was trying to interfere on the ring apron and followed it up with a modified Death Valley Driver on Erica to get the pinfall and retain her title in an explosive match.
Next up, new #1 Contender “Worst in the World” Copycat (@CopycatWrestler) came out to address the IZW World and talk about his upcoming match with IZW Champion “The Natural Born Leader” Johnny Z (@NBL_JohnnyZ) at “Chaotic Christmas” on December 21. Copycat was joined by “Big Business” Damon Windsor (@DamonWindsor) in the ring who had a different take on the IZW Title situation. Windsor was not going to back away from getting another shot at Johnny Z and gave Copycat the option of stepping to the side or getting his title shot taken away by force from Windsor.
Backstage, Johnny Z had a discussion with “Bad” Brad Michaels about Michaels upcoming IZW Title Match. In fact, there would be no match for the IZW Title…at least for the foreseeable future. Even though Z promised Michaels a shot for the championship if Michaels eliminated Double D during the Monsters Bash Battle Royal at “Halloween Hangover”, which Michaels did, per Co-Commissioner Shawn McHale and the rules set forth, Copycat was still the #1 Contender because he won Monsters Bash. What Z did do was set up a main event for later in the night with Michaels against Windsor as Z was hoping Michaels would be able assassinate the career of Windsor and get him out of the picture once and for all.
Impact Division Champion “The Image of Fear” Kevin Morgan (@TheImageofFear) was in action against “The Captain of the Force” Double D in a non-title, grudge match. In the beginning, Double D used his speed and agility to offset the size and power of Morgan as D scored with chops as well as multiple knees to the face of Morgan in the corner until Morgan countered with a power bomb. Morgan then tossed D around like a rag doll. D connected with a spinning heel kick and drop kick but Morgan destroyed Double D with a clothesline moments later and tossed him out of the ring as he showed he was still in charge of the bout. When action resumed in ring, D countered Morgan’s offense with a jawbreaker then delivered multiple flying knees. D blistered Morgan with several chops, but missed with the Force chop as Morgan grabbed the hand of D and used it as leverage to toss him across the ring once again. Morgan had his way with D as he tossed him out of the ring again and dished out more punishment near the guardrail. When they returned to the squared circle, D countered a whip into the ropes by hitting a bulldog on the waiting Morgan. Shortly after, Morgan caught Double D’s high crossbody and chucked D into the corner where D ricocheted off the turnbuckle. Morgan whipped D into the ropes one more time but D connected with a drop kick and springboard knee to Morgan’s face. Double D then hit a springboard tornado DDT that put Morgan down for a two-count. An enziguri, missile drop kick and a sunset flip from the top rope in successive moves was enough to get Morgan down for a count of three as the big man was shocked and stunned at the final outcome.
Next up, “Worst in the World” Copycat took on “Big, Bad and Sexy” Angel Camacho (@A_Camacho0986) in singles competition. These two were the final combatants in the Monsters Bash Battle Royal, which Copycat won, so Camacho was looking to take out his frustration of not being the #1 Contender on the man that beat him for the spot. After ducking under several clothesline attempts by Camacho, Copycat played a game of cat and mouse as he darted in and out of the ring only to have Camacho chase him back and forth and in the process run himself into exhaustion. When action returned to the ring, Camacho was able to flip Copycat off the second rope ending with Copycat splattering in the center of the ring. Camacho hit a body slam then a senton on a groggy Copycat. Camacho tried to further damage Copycat’s ribcage with a reverse bear hug. Camacho gave Copycat a German suplex but Copycat landed on his feet (just like a cat) and hit a fist drop and Face Mob knee drop for a two-count. Copy then connected with a springboard clothesline that sent Camacho down hard. Camacho countered with a single leg drop kick right to the chest of Copycat. Another slam by Camacho and Copycat was a broken man. Camacho went for a vertical suplex but Copycat shucked out and went for a school boy rollup but Camacho was too powerful to get pinned for a three-count. A knee to Copycat’s ribs put him down again until he countered with a double arm DDT that planted Camacho on his head. Later, Camacho countered a Thesz Press attempt with a bear hug. Copy broke free and planted some well-placed left and right hooks square on Camacho’s stomach then connected with a second Thesz Press attempt. As Copycat pummeled away at Camacho’s face, he then upped the ante with a lionsault that connected with Camacho’s head. Camacho countered with a standing splash and as he went for a BBS Splash, Copycat responded at the last second with a Doppelganger. Copycat followed up with a second Doppelganger that put Camacho’s lights out for good.
Two veterans of IZW tangled next as Striker (@strikerokb) took on Soto Miyagi. Miyagi started out with kicks to the body until he was met with a clothesline by Striker after being whipped into the ropes. A body slam and punches to the face had Striker in full control. Striker whipped Miyagi into the ropes once again but Miyagi came back with a crossbody that dropped Striker. A side suplex by Striker evened things up. Striker went for a sunset flip pin attempt but Miyagi muscled out and connected with karate kicks to Striker’s midsection followed by Mongolian chops and an axe handle springboard from the second rope. Miyagi also connected with a running knee before Striker smothered Miyagi’s offence with a choke in the corner. Striker missed with a splash in the corner and Miyagi connected with a shining wizard to finish Striker off. Miyagi looked rejuvenated as he pulled off some new moves in this bout. Striker left the ring visibly upset at his defeat as he tossed a chair into the ring and walked up the ramp yelling at himself.
“Lights Out” Jordan Jacobs (@JacobsLightsOut) returned with the “Lights Out Lounge” and broke some news as his left arm is broken and required surgery that will put him on the shelf until 2014. He then went on to mock the IZW World and listed his in ring credentials and promised bigger and better things for Mr. Young Talent in the future.
In the main event, “Big Business” Damon Windsor locked horns with “Bad” Brad Michaels. Michaels was no match early as Windsor over powered him at every turn, first with a pie face that sent Michaels stumbling back against the turnbuckle, then with a shoulder block that sent Michaels down again. Michaels missed with a super kick and got a meat hook of a right hand across the face for his troubles. Windsor and Michaels traded chops until Windsor’s power was felt again as he suplexed Michaels. Later, Michaels delivered a super kick to Windsor’s knee, dropping the big man immediately. Michaels kept up his methodical attack on Windsor’s knee by kicking the knee as well as hyperextending the knee with various joint locks. Windsor hobbled up to his feet but was at a disadvantage because of the prolonged and precise attack on his knee by Michaels. Michaels further damaged Windsor’s left leg by attacking Windsor’s hamstring muscle with blunt force knees. Michaels’ offense culminated with a figure four leg lock. As Windsor writhed in pain on the mat he somehow found the inner strength to break the hold by grabbing Michaels across his throat. Windsor rose to his feet, whipped Michaels into the ropes and unloaded with a clothesline that nearly took the head off of Michaels. Windsor followed up with a spinning side slam. Windsor readied for a choke slam but was met with a super kick to the face by Michaels as both men crumbled to the mat. Michaels went for a piledriver but Windsor defended well and bullied Michaels into the corner where he delivered his patented back elbows. Seconds later, Windsor grabbed Michaels across the throat and gave him a choke slam in the center of the ring and scored the victory in a great comeback for “Big Business”.
Windsor looked better than ever as he continues to position himself for a rematch with IZW Champion Johnny Z. There is no doubt that Windsor and Copycat are headed for another confrontation in the near future as both of these wrestlers have the IZW Championship in their sights and it looks like nothing is going to derail either of them from that opportunity, except possibly one another.

Lightweight Title William Lavine (4-2) defeated Charles Brown (1-1) via triangle choke in the first round to claim the Brawl Inc. title in a hotly anticipated showdown. In the first, Brown scored with a nice double leg takedown after a brief exchange in the standup. Both fighters had dueling headlocks as Brown looked to improve his position to side mount. After a brief scramble up to their feet, they were back down on the mat with Brown in the mount. Another scramble saw them once again each holding a head lock trying to gain positional dominance. Lavine managed to get to spot where he scored with knees to the body before Brown put him on his back again. That’s when Lavine locked in the triangle choke. Brown tried to fight out of it and spun around but Lavine kept the submission on and even scored with punches from the position as Brown finally tapped out in a great display of grappling by both men.

“IZW Adrenaline” returned to GFL.tv with another blistering episode of top notch wrestling as the feuds and grudges between the IZW wrestlers continue to boil over. If you missed the show live, no problem as “IZW Adrenaline” is now FREE on GFL.tv every Saturday night and can also be watched on GFL On Demand in the days and weeks following the event!
To open the show, Impact Elite made their way down to the ring to gloat and showboat in front of the IZW World as the IZW Title, the IZW Impact Division Title and the IZW Tag Titles were now all in the possession of an Impact Elite member. Referee Mark Wilson (@bsstallion) also joined Impact Elite in the ring as its newest member after Wilson was part of a double cross at “Halloween Hangover” that saw him kick “Big Business” Damon Windsor (@DamonWindsor) in the nether regions which led to IZW Champion “The Natural Born Leader” Johnny Z (@NBL_JohnnyZ) successfully defending his title in a Casket Match. Wilson renounced himself as IZW’s lead referee citing he could not “raise expectations” nor “gain status” as a lowly referee. Windsor strolled out to the onstage ramp and demanded another shot at Z for the IZW Title. This brought out the winner of the Monsters Bash Battle Royal and new #1 Contender “Worst in the World” Copycat (@CopycatWrestler). Copycat let it be known that he was next in line to wrestle Johnny Z because he had “earned” the shot, not just demanded it like Windsor was doing. Windsor took exception to Copy’s words and then Erica made a match between the two for later that night in the main event. Erica also threw in a huge stipulation that if Windsor won the match he would be the new #1 Contender and face Johnny Z at “Chaotic Christmas” on December 21 for the IZW Title. Not to be outdone, Co-Commissioner “The Number 1” Shawn McHale arrived on the scene and made a match on the spot with Z wrestling The Bronze Bull (@BronzeBull_AN) in a non-title match as the opening bout of the night.
Z wanted no part of wrestling in the beginning as he stayed on the outside of the ring stretching, jawing with the fans and finding any reason not to step in the ring and lock up with The Bronze Bull. Bull finally had enough and brought Z into the ring the hard way then gave the Champion two eye pokes, bit him in the face and choked him with the ropes. Bull hammered away at Z in the corner by dropping a series of right hands and biting Z once again followed by a spinebuster in the middle of the ring. Z managed to catch his wind after he tossed Bull out of the ring where Mark Wilson gave Bull a cheap shot with the championship belt. Once the in ring action resumed, Z connected with a big boot but missed with a bulldog from the second rope as Bull reversed the move hitting a side suplex. Later, Z ducked a discus punch and landed a perfect floatover DDT. Bull flipped out of the ring while going for a flying clothesline and was once again smashed in the head by Wilson with the championship belt. Bull staggered up as Z recovered in the ring. Johnny Z connected with a rope-hung DDT but Bull returned fire with a spear shortly after. With Bull distracted by Wilson, Z hit his second rope bulldog but only got a two-count. Z then missed with his finisher, the Big Boot in the Corner, getting hung up on the top rope where The Bronze Bull added insult to injury by shaking the top rope up and down doing damage to Z’s family jewels. Bull connected with a Greetings From Mt Olympus and picked up the pinfall scoring a victory over the IZW Champion in a non-title match.
New Impact Division Champion “The Image of Fear” Kevin Morgan (@TheImageofFear) had his first title defense against Montego Seeka (@montegoseeka) next. Morgan showed off some technical skill in the beginning as he grabbed a figure four arm lock and bent Seeka backwards with it and even got a pin count until Seeka broke free. Not to be outdone, Seeka snatched a side head lock seconds later but Morgan broke free in the corner and connected with several uppercuts. Morgan punished Seeka some more with head butts and multiple forearms to the chest and back. Morgan caught a kick by Seeka, but Seeka used the positioning to connect with an enziguri kick that buckled Morgan. Seeka followed up with four drop kicks that finally got Morgan off of his feet. Seeka jumped from the top rope but was caught midair by Morgan and given a full force Detonator as Morgan made the easy cover after that.
IZW Tag Team Champion “Larger Than Life” Jermaine Johnson (@JermaineAboutME) battled “The Captain of the Force” Double D (@IZWDoubleD) in a heated match next. Johnson and Double D went hold for hold in the beginning showing off their respective scientific wrestling base as they traded lock ups, takedowns, go behinds and scrambles. Johnson switched it up with a knee to the stomach as Double D countered with punches in the corner. Johnson hit a body slam and clubbed D down with forearms to the back of the neck and upper back. Johnson whipped D into the ropes but D countered with a spinning heel kick and connected with a high cross body outside of the ring moments later. Back in the ring, D cinched on an arm ringer as Johnson begged for mercy. Johnson worked his way out of the hold and snatched an arm ringer of his own in impressive fashion but D turned the tables again as Johnson went flying head over heels back down to the mat with his arm all twisted up thanks to Double D. Johnson finally broke free and hit a side suplex using only one arm followed by a baseball slide drop kick to D’s head. D regrouped and was able to plant Johnson down with a Force chop after unleashing several chops to Johnson’s bare chest moments earlier. D went up for a high crossbody but Johnson connected with a belly to belly suplex off the top rope instead. Johnson followed that up with a superplex from the top rope. Johnson missed an ES2 as his arm was still injured from the damage it took earlier in the bout when D was twisting and pulling on it. Double D then used Johnson’s big miss to turn the tide in his favor as he scored a huge high crossbody that sent Johnson down on his backside for a count of three as Double D picked up the win in a dizzying back and forth match.
Former referee turned mouthpiece/manager Mark Wilson strapped on the wrestling boots to take on “The Brass Bull” Bobby Starr (@thegods_bs) in singles competition. Starr had his back and torso wrapped up as he was still nursing the injuries he sustained at “Halloween Hangover” from What Wrestling Should Be. Wilson was content to poke Starr in the eyes then scurry out of the ring. Starr followed and was in hot pursuit until Jermaine Johnson, who accompanied Wilson down to the ring, nearly decapitated Starr with a clothesline. Johnson then tossed Starr into the steel steps but was immediately tossed out of the wrestling ring area by the referee. Even with Johnson in the back now, the damage was already done as Wilson and Starr returned to the ring and Wilson went after Starr’s badly injured lower back with elbows. But Starr wouldn’t stay down, as he gave Wilson a perfect spear that dropped the “Butterscotch Stallion”. Starr went for a Greetings From Mt Olympus but his back gave out and Wilson seized the opportunity rolling up Starr, while using the ropes for leverage, and getting the pin.
In the main event, “Worst in the World” Copycat battled “Big Business” Damon Windsor. After a quick lockup, Windsor broke free and went for a choke slam but was defended by Copycat who looked for a Doppelganger which Windsor guarded against. It was clear these two were looking to end one another’s night early with a bang. Copycat tried to hit Windsor’s famous back elbows in the corner but was thwarted with overhand rights as Windsor dropped Copy like a ton of bricks. Copy followed up with a Thesz Press then whipped Windsor into the corner where things backfired for him as he took a big boot then a body slam by the bigger, stronger Windsor. Windsor showed Copycat how it was done as he unloaded with his patented back elbows in the corner as Copy once again found himself on the mat. Windsor slapped on a front face lock but Copy broke free and finally sent Windsor down to the canvas with a kick to the face. Copy then went to work on Windsor’s base, as Copy wrenched away at Windsor’s knee and ankle. Windsor fought back to his feet and after getting dumped on his head by a hurricanrana from Copycat, Windsor managed to find a way to move out of the way of a flying elbow drop as Copycat crashed and burned. After a clothesline, Windsor sunk in a reverse chin lock when Copycat countered with a jaw breaker, a double arm DDT and a Face Mob knee drop. But the cerebral Windsor had scouted Copycat well and knew the Doppelganger was coming next as he sidestepped the move and gave Copycat a sidewalk slam. A suplex by Windsor added more trauma to Copycat’s spine. Windsor whipped Copycat into the ropes but Copycat sprung back with a flying shoulder block that dropped Windsor once again. As both men dug down to the bottom of the well, Copycat rose to his feet first and delivered a moonsault from the second rope only to get a two-count! Windsor stood up and nearly connected with a spinning side slam, until Copycat countered and showed tremendous strength in hoisting Windsor onto his shoulders looking for a Death Valley Driver. Windsor broke free and finally connected with his spinning side slam. Windsor looked to punch Copycat’s ticket with a choke slam but that’s when Impact Elite rushed the ring and began to stomp a mud hole in both Windsor and Copycat causing the ref to rule the bout a no contest. Windsor and Copycat were able to get payback as Windsor gave Jermaine Johnson a choke slam while Copycat hit a Doppelganger on Kevin Morgan. The fact still remains, the #1 Contender Match was ruined by Impact Elite as Johnny Z laughed at the melee in the ring as the show ended. No matter who Z faces at “Chaotic Christmas” he is still in the driver’s seat.

BlacKOut Fighting Championship returned to GFL as it presented “BlacKOut Fighting Championship 14″ emanating from Emporia, Kansas. This event had 10 MMA fights along with 2 grappling matches and saw 8 bouts end before the final bell. BFC was looking to make a statement to a worldwide audience and the fighters did just that as each fight was nonstop action.
In the main event, for the BlacKOut Heavyweight Championship, Adam Lacer-D’Angelo (6-0) defeated James Brittelli via unanimous decision. Lacer-D’Angelo won every round on all 3 judges’ scorecards as he dominated with his wrestling and ground game. Lacer-D’Angelo was able to work the ground game as he got multiple takedowns as he changed up his attacks and kept Brittelli on the defensive and usually on his back. Lacer-D’Angelo scored with punches in Brittelli’s guard throughout the fight and was also actively looking to advance position to side control or even mount. Brittelli was valiant in defeat as anytime the fight was standing he was looking for that one knockout punch as he was swinging with all of his power but Lacer-D’Angelo would just duck and go in for another takedown and put Brittelli on his back. In the final round, Brittelli tried for a guillotine choke on the ground, but Lacer-D’Angelo was able to pop out and hold the dominant spot on the mat inside Brittelli’s guard where Lacer-D’Angelo scored with punches.
In the co-main event, in a #1 Contender Match, Hector Arteaga (8-3) defeated Demetrius Wilson (6-3) with a rear naked choke in round one of a bantamweight scrap.

“Halloween Hangover” delivered another stellar show with multiple titles changes as well as the crowning of a new #1 Contender, courtesy of the Monsters Bash Battle Royal, who will challenge for the IZW Title at “Chaotic Christmas” on December 21. The athleticism and drive of each and every wrestler who participated in this event proved why IZW has no peer on the independent wrestling scene. If you only buy one wrestling iPPV this season, check out “Halloween Hangover” to see the rough and tumble style of IZW.
To begin the show, the IZW Impact Division Championship was on the line as Champion “The Urban Legend” Drake Gallows took on “The Image of Fear” Kevin Morgan in an Impact Rules Match. Morgan took the lead with a clothesline that wrecked Gallows, followed by an efficient beat down that saw Gallows absorb kicks, stomps, head butts and punches to the throat. Gallows took a nasty spill outside of the ring but managed to finally get in some offense when he threw Morgan down the length of the entire ramp which saw Morgan crash onto the concrete floor and smash into the ring. Gallows connected with multiple chair shots including a DDT onto a chair and a baseball drop kick onto a chair as Morgan’s head became a piñata. Morgan retaliated by punching the chair as hard as he could with it ricocheting into Gallows’ face and splitting his forehead open. As blood poured out of Gallows, Morgan continued his punishment by whipping Gallows into the steel steps on the outside of the ring. Gallows’ knees took the brunt of the impact as he flipped head over heels onto the concrete floor. After being dropped face first on the same steel steps, Gallows was now sporting an authentic crimson mask. After tossing Gallows back into the ring, Morgan set up a table on the outside. Morgan whipped Gallows into the ropes and went for a back body drop, looking to dump Gallows on the table waiting below. Instead, Gallows regained his balance, landed on the ring apron but was suplexed back into the ring by Morgan. Later, after trading haymakers, Gallows connected with a drop kick to the face only to be destroyed with a big boot seconds later when he looked for another drop kick. Morgan gave Gallows and overhead press slam from the top turnbuckle followed by a double handed choke slam. The ref only counted to two before Gallows got a shoulder up. Morgan hit a running power slam in the center of the ring and followed up with a Detonator but a lazy pin attempt allowed Gallows to lift a shoulder. Then out of nowhere, Gallows hit Morgan with a chair, hoisted the big man onto his shoulders and delivered an Emo Killer but was only able to get a two-count of his own. Gallows followed up with a moonsault from the top rope but even that was not enough to get a three-count! Gallows went to the adjacent corner and climbed to the top rope once again looking to connect with another moonsault but was instead hurled down to the floor below crashing full force through the table that was set up earlier in the match by Morgan. Morgan dragged Gallows’ limp carcass back into the ring and got the 1-2-3 becoming the new IZW Impact Division Champion in impressive fashion.
Next up, the IZW Tag Team Titles were on the line as the Champions Team Bull (The Bronze Bull & “The Brass Bull” Bobby Starr) wrestled What Wrestling Shoulder Be (“Lights Out” Jordan Jacobs & “Larger Than Life” Jermaine Johnson). Before Team Bull could make their intro into the ring, they were ambushed from behind by WWSB. The Bronze Bull was whipped head first into the steel ring post while Starr had his spine rearranged by a metal chair shot from Jacobs. And this was before the match officially started! Team Bull gritted their way to the ring and the match began. Bull and Jacobs locked up first with Bull managing to throttle both Jacobs and then Johnson who jumped into the ring only to get tossed out like a rag doll. Jacobs took a reverse atomic drop full force followed by a spear from Bull before Starr tagged himself in. Jacobs hit a leaping double knees to Starr’s lower back and continued to work Starr over in the corner of WWSB. After Johnson tagged in to land a couple stiff shots to Starr, Jacobs was back in sinking in a modified camel clutch. Starr rose to his feet and dropped Jacobs to the mat, but that only served to have Johnson tag in who continued to annihilate Starr with elbows to the jaw. Jacobs tagged back in but Starr reversed a suplex which gave him some breathing room for the first time in the match. But with Starr’s lower back still hurting from the chair shot before the match, Jacobs was able to make it to his feet first and tag in Johnson who connected with a suplex of his own on Starr. Johnson then power bombed his own teammate, Jacobs, onto Starr for an innovative pin attempt, but Starr got a shoulder up at the last second. WWSB went for another original move as this time Johnson tried to give Jacobs a crucifix power bomb onto Starr, but Starr ducked the move and Jacobs ended up being hurled into the turnbuckle. Starr next dumped Johnson over the top rope where Johnson was able to run over to the other side and prevent Bull from tagging in. In the melee, Jacobs recovered enough to hook on an inverted kneebar until Johnson took over with a rear waist lock on Starr. Starr escaped long enough to connect with a DDT but was dropped with a spinning heel kick by Johnson seconds later. Jacobs locked on a front face lock but somehow Starr mustered up enough strength to give Jacobs a suplex and tag in Bull, which the ref did not see. As Bull was ushered back outside the ropes by the ref, Johnson locked on an abdominal stretch. Jacobs and Johnson took turns keeping a fresh body on the attack at all times until Starr managed to connect with a spear that dropped Johnson and move out of the way of two flying leg drops by Johnson and Jacobs. Starr jumped to his corner, tagging in The Bronze Bull who clotheslined both members of WWSB followed by a splash in the corner. Bull connected with another clothesline on Johnson and a spinebuster on Jacobs as every move was more powerful than the last. Bull hoisted Jacobs up for a Greetings From Mt. Olympus but was caught with an ES2 from Johnson and then pinned by Jacobs as WWSB became the new IZW Tag Team Champions!
The Queen’s Crown was up for grabs as Champion Erica took on Miss Diss Lexia and “The Megastar” Angel Blue in a Triple Threat Match. It was clear from the beginning that MDL and Blue were working together against Erica. A double clothesline, hip toss, suplex and splash in the corner had Erica taking twice the punishment with every move. It wasn’t until MDL and Blue both went to pin Erica that they began to wrestle against one another. With Erica outside the ring recovering, Blue and MDL had a nice one on one grappling match. Blue had a nice hip toss takedown while MDL reversed the position with a leg scissors. Erica leaped back into the match only to take a hurricanrana by Blue that took Miss Diss Lexia down too. Erica recovered shortly after and began to systematically take out Blue and MDL. Erica hit Blue with a slam and connected with a leg drop bulldog on MDL. It was back and forth all match with Blue elevating Erica at one point and MDL meeting Erica with a drop kick to the face. MDL then hit a clothesline on Erica before being tossed outside of the ring. Erica tried to catapult herself onto MDL down below, but missed and took another brutal clothesline crashing down to the outside mats. Blue, the only one left in the ring, climbed to the top rope and connected with a huge dive outside that knocked MDL and Erica on their backsides. Blue dragged MDL back into the ring where she went back to her scientific wrestling background as she tried to pull MDL’s shoulders out of socket while Erica was still recovering outside of the ring. Erica returned to the ring and bludgeoned both Blue and MDL culminating in giving MDL a torture rack-cutter combo. Not to be outdone, Blue and MDL hit each other with a running clothesline that loosened a few teeth. In the move of the match, and possibly the night, Erica gave MDL and Blue and double German suplex displaying the type of raw power that makes her a cut above most every other female wrestler on the planet. Erica used every type of pin attempt to keep Blue and MDL down but both challengers’ resolve was forged in fire as neither one would stay down for a three-count. Later, not to be outdone by Erica’s double German suplex, MDL gave Blue and Erica a power bomb-suplex combo from the top rope, showing off her supernatural strength! Erica took the brunt of the move and fell out of the ring while Blue and MDL went one on one each trading signature moves. Blue hit a bicycle kick as MDL followed up with a butterfly suplex. Blue then hit her finisher, the DejaBlue, only to be thrown out of the ring by Erica. Erica tried to steal the pinfall on MDL but was reversed as MDL pinned Erica’s shoulders to the mat for a three-count to win the Queen’s Crown and become the new champion!
The much talked about Monsters Bash Battle Royal was next with the winner becoming the #1 Contender to the IZW Title. Double D who was the #1 entrant and Jermaine Johnson who was #2 began the match. Both D and Johnson desperately tried to toss one another over the top rope, but they were both too strong and their battle became a stalemate until the two minutes were up and the #3 entrant, Graham Bell, rushed to the ring. The match resembled a Triple Threat at this point with each man looking after his own best interest and trying to toss whomever was vulnerable at the time over the top rope. “Bad” Brad Michaels was #4 and had a bullseye on Double D from the get-go. If Michaels eliminated Double D, then he would be given an automatic title shot at the IZW Championship regardless of if he won the whole battle royal or not. As Michaels and D paired off, Bell came extremely close to eliminating Johnson with a leg scissors throw. Erica was #5 giving Impact Elite the numbers in the early going. In a close call, Erica, Double D and Michaels were almost all eliminated in successive order. The Bronze Bull brought the total to 6 as the ring was starting to fill up quickly now. Johnson and Bull paired off with Bull torturing Johnson with fisticuffs, while Bell and Michaels went tit for tat and finally Double D and Erica squared off with D coming close several times to tossing Erica over the top rope. “Big, Bad and Sexy” Angel Camacho entered at #7 and was double teamed by Double D and Langley while Johnson and Michaels looked to toss The Bronze Bull out as Erica rested in the corner. #8 was a newcomer to IZW as a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger made his debut. The entrance of the Power Ranger caused everyone else to stop what they were doing. The Power Ranger showed off some skilled techniques as he was able to drop Johnson, Michaels, Camacho and Erica. Soto Miyagi entered at #9 and had a showdown with the Power Ranger in the middle of the ring. After they both hit one another with drop kicks, the remaining wrestlers seized Miyagi and the Power Ranger and tossed them over the top rope eliminating both masked men at the same time. Kevin Morgan entered at #10 just as Bell missed with a splash in the corner and fell over the top rope. D almost got tossed over the top rope by Morgan, but was saved by Michaels ironically, because Michaels wanted to be the one to do it. D unloaded with multiple knees to several opponents after getting a reprieve just as the #11 contestant, Montego Seeka, entered the ring. Seeka leveled almost the entire collection of wrestlers with leg kicks or chops before succumbing to a 3 on 1 thrashing from Johnson, Morgan and Camacho. Jordan Jacobs became the 12th entrant and promptly got into the mix by helping Johnson try and eliminate The Bronze Bull. On the other side of the ring, Michaels came close to tossing out Double D, but D managed to hold on and fall back into the ring to safety. Angel Blue clocked in at #13 and went straight towards Erica. Blue started to smash a hole in Erica before Jacobs intervened, but he ended up the worse for wear as Blue hit him low and went back to attacking Erica. With so many people in the ring at once it was chaos with people getting chopped, punched in the face and kicked while they were down. “Worst in the World” Copycat checked in at #14. Copycat made an immediate impact by eliminating one of the odds on favorites as he clotheslined Jermaine Johnson over the top rope. Seeka was eliminated thanks to being tossed over the top rope by Morgan in what amounted to an 11 foot fall. Next up was newcomer the Mexi-Heel at #15. Mexi-Heel and Camacho worked in tandem to try and eliminate Copycat, but Copy hung on to the top rope for dear life and managed to escape. In the meantime, Double D hung on upside down by one foot as Michaels was relentless in trying to earn a title shot at the IZW Championship by eliminating Double D. The returning “Detroit Hype Machine” Brandon Bishop caused quite a few heads to turn a he was #16. Bishop had been decimated several weeks earlier by The Convict and was left for dead. No one in IZW had heard from him since, but the Monsters Bash was too big of an opportunity to pass up and Bishop was back in full force. Bishop gave neck breakers to Jacobs and Copycat, chopped the hell out of Mexi-Heel and went back and forth with Michaels giving one thunderous overhand right after another. Bishop’s intensity gave Double D a break from Michaels for the first time in several minutes. Miss Diss Lexia checked in at #17. It had already been a huge night for MDL by winning the Queen’s Crown and she picked up right where she left off by first assisting Blue in trying to toss over Erica, but then changing it up and throwing Blue over the top rope herself. The gorilla was up next at #18 and that put everyone on high alert. Who’s going to want to fight a gorilla? #19 was The Midnite Rider who was shrewd enough to bring with him a banana. Rider tossed the banana over the top rope and like clockwork the gorilla followed suit eliminating himself as things got back to normal inside the ring. Drake Gallows entered at #20 with his head heavily bandaged from his prior match with Morgan where he lost the Impact Division Title. Gallows was clearly injured but went after Morgan as the two battled in the corner until the next entrant was up. “The Brass Bull” Bobby Starr drew #21 and hobbled to the ring looking to get his pound of flesh. Double D and Bishop came close to eliminating each other as they both toppled over the top rope but hung on to a rope to stop their momentum. O’Malley made his return to IZW as the #22 participant. O’Malley begin throwing one-hitter quitters to everyone in his crosshairs as a surplus of wrestlers started dropping to the canvas like flies. Luke Langley entered the ring at #23 and joined the mass of bodies who were all trying to increase their chances at winning by any means necessary. Bishop was biting O’Malley, Michaels and Camacho were teaming up against Starr, The Bronze Bull was hitting Morgan with a running splash and much, much more. “The #1” Shawn McHale was # 24 in the Monsters Bash as the Co-Commissioner decided to get physical. McHale came out dressed as The Convict, in shorts. As O’Malley chased McHale around the ring, The Bronze Bull eliminated The Midnite Rider while Gallows eliminated the Mexi-Heel. Striker had his number called at #25 and was eliminated shortly after by overshooting a splash attempt and flying over the top rope. Erica was eliminated next courtesy of Copycat giving Copy two notches in his belt when it concerned Impact Elite. MDL also was eliminated shortly after leaving no women left in the match. The final entrant was The Convict at #26. As soon as The Convict entered the ring, McHale hot-tailed it out of there, jumping over the top rope and eliminating himself. There can be only one Convict. Bodies started falling at a break neck pace as The Convict eliminated The Bronze Bull, Gallows eliminated Jacobs with an Emo Killer, while Langley was sent flying over the top rope by O’Malley. Convict eradicated Starr in a blink of an eye, and sent Gallows flying out a minute later. Double D eliminated Kevin Morgan with a nifty head scissors that sent Morgan flying head first out of the ring with Bishop doing the same thing to The Convict seconds later. Then in a stunner, Michaels eliminated Double D with a super kick punching his ticket to an IZW Title Match sometime in the future! Michaels eliminated himself after that, because he had nothing else to prove with his future title match now secure. The Convict came back into the ring and gave Bishop a 15 to 20 over the top rope to eliminate him from the competition. Convict was already eliminated by this point, so the fact that Bishop was indeed tossed out by someone no longer in the match was a bit contradictory to the rules of the match. But after the 15 to 20, even if Bishop wasn’t technically eliminated, there was no way he was coming back in this match. His night was over. That left three: O’Malley, Angel Camacho and Copycat. O’Malley tossed Copy high into the air with a back body drop and Camacho added to the move by pushing Copy down as he fell to the canvas. O’Malley and Camacho teamed up again with a standing splash with Copy in the middle. With Copy against the ropes unable to stand up on his own, O’Malley took a running start and looked to clothesline Copy over the top rope, but at the last second, Copy ducked, pulled the top rope down and O’Malley and his 400 lb frame went sailing out of the ring leaving Copycat and Camacho as the final two competitors. Copycat then hit a Thesz Press on Camacho followed by several punches to Camacho’s face. Camacho responded by regaining his composure and whipping Copy into the ropes then squashing him down with a standing splash. Camacho rose to the top rope looking for his finisher, the BBS Splash, but Copy managed to rise to his feet and run full force at Camacho, hitting him with a drop kick in the midsection that knocked Camacho out of the ring. “The Worst in the World” had finally done it! He was now the #1 Contender for the IZW Title and was well on his way to making people learn…today.
In the main event, IZW Champion “The Natural Born Leader” Johnny Z put his title on the line as he took on “Big Business” Damon Windsor in a Casket Match to close out the show. With the casket butted up against the ring, it loomed over everything that happened in the ring and foreshadowed the deadly consequences and high stakes of this all-important title match. Johnny Z did more talking and showboating than wrestling in the opening minutes as he didn’t want to lock up with Windsor. Z jumped out of the ring and had Windsor follow him and when Z returned to the squared circle he made Windsor pay with knees to the back of the head as Windsor tried to re-enter the ring himself. A back body drop by Windsor saw Z take flight, but seconds later, Z dodged a sidewalk slam and countered with a big boot that crumbled Windsor to the mat. Z took the fight to the mat where he pounded away at Windsor’s face with short right hands before tossing Windsor outside of the ring. Z scored with an axe handle from the ring apron then Windsor retaliated by throwing Z head first into the steel steps. Z reversed an Irish whip and sent Windsor into the guardrail seconds later as both men showed they were more than prepared to dig down deep and do whatever they had to do to walk out as champion. Z grinded Windsor’s face against the guardrail before missing badly with a Big Boot that left him straddling the guardrail with his package taking the full impact of the move. Windsor added to Z’s pain with several reverse elbows followed by a roundhouse right hand that dropped Z face first on the concrete. Z’s night only got worse as he was hurled into the steel steps. Back in the ring, Windsor connected with a spinning side slam and tried to roll Z into the open casket. Z avoided the coffin and hit a floatover DDT to turn the tide in his favor. Z hit a snap mare then a rear chin lock as he kept Windsor off of his feet before hitting a big boot and a second rope bulldog in successive moves. Z took an unnecessary risk and went for a top rope leg drop but missed. Whether you like Johnny Z or not, he was doing everything humanly possible to try and get Windsor into the casket. Later, Z countered a choke slam attempt with a DDT as he tried to roll Windsor into the wooden box but to no avail. Z looked for the Final Impact neck breaker but Windsor pushed out of the move and hit a sidewalk slam instead. Windsor then whipped Z into the ropes and connected with a spinning side slam. Windsor climbed to the top rope looking for his BFE but Z cleverly pushed referee Mark Wilson into the ropes causing Windsor to crotch himself. Johnny Z followed up with a Big Boot and tried once again to roll Windsor into the casket. Z got Windsor in the casket but could not get the top shut as Windsor stuck up his hand and blocked the casket from closing down on him. Windsor fought out of the casket but was met with a series of knees to his face. As Windsor recovered, Z grabbed his title belt and returned to the ring intent on plowing through Windsor’s face with it. Referee Wilson snatched the belt from Z’s hands causing Z to unload a kick right through the uprights. But Wilson had been one step ahead of Z this time as he pulled out an athletic cup from his pants. Wilson then shoved Z right into Windsor’s waiting hands where he delivered a choke slam. Windsor then rolled Z into the casket and was about to shut the lid when referee Mark Wilson did the unthinkable and gave Windsor a low blow from behind debilitating Windsor in the process. Wilson helped Z out of the casket and then Z grabbed his belt and destroyed Windsor with it hitting him in the face at full speed. Windsor was almost knocked out and Z rolled Windsor into the casket, shutting the lid and retaining his title in an ending nobody saw coming!
