My local promotion, Target Wrestling, had their 4th Anniversary Show on 22nd April. I was there and it is amazing to be part of one of the loudest crowds I have been in when going to the wrestling.
My favourite tag team, Polo Promotions, defeated The Guest List tag team James Scott and Martin Kirby to become the new tag champions. Really good match that must have had a 20 minute long Polo Promotions/James Scott’s a wanker chant that my voice didn’t recover from until the Monday after the show!
Paul London was the Target Wrestling High Octane champion and was supposed to face Target Wrestling champion Shady Nattrass in a 2/3 falls match. However, due to a knee injury, London had to pull out of the show. This affected two matches. First match was a fatal four way match between Michael Chase, ‘Turbo’ Josh Terry, Damon Havok and DCT. This was supposed to be a number 1 contenders match for the High Octane championship. Now that title was vacated due to injury it then became a championship match. Great high flyer Josh Terry won that match and he is definitely someone to watch out for in the future. ‘Turbo’ Josh Terry.
The second match affected was the main event for the Target Wrestling Heavyweight championship. Shady Nattrass was going to give himself the night off but out came Lucha Underground star Angelico to challenge him.
It was a good match that ended with a great looking dive from the stage by Angelico into the ring but was caught by an RKO from Shady for the win.
Other results from the show was Karnage defeating Mikey Whiplash in a good opener.
Medallion defeated Coyote Kid in a street fight in an OK match. Not really a fan but they put on a good hardcore rules match. Medallion won with help from a fake medallion and women’s wrestler Ivy Mist. Mist and real Medallion took three attempts at a conchairto that was not timed well at all but these things happen.
Also Joe Coffey defeated Grado in an entertaining match. Joe Coffey is part of the heel faction the Guest List with James Scott, Martin Kirby, Mikey Whiplash and manager Marc Allan. After the match they all attacked Grado. Polo Promotions and local wrestler Karnage made the save.
Great show and a great crowd. Next show is on 20th May featuring an appearance from Joel Gertner. Polo Promotions will defend the tag titles against Tyson T Bone and Rampage Brown and Shady Nattrass will defend in a four way elimination match. So far Karnage has gained a spot in that match.
