Pro Wrestling NEO-GEN

As long as I could recall, I was a wrestling fan. I never had a bigger dream than owning a Pro Wrestling federation. Yet in recent years, I've noticed that Pro Wrestling in the United States has become a joke. The classic saying goes: In Mexico, it's a religion, in Canada it's a tradition, in Japan it's a sport and in America it's a joke." I wanted to open up a pro wrestling federation.

I managed to save up $50,000 from various gambling winnings and my job, but that was substantially lower than what I needed. I decided to seek out a certain former WWE employee who was working at a casino that I enjoyed playing at. You may know him as Rico Constantino. He was a secruity guard at the Palms and I decide to seek him out. After hours of negotiation, I managed to convince him to come on board and open up a wrestling school with me. He managed to bring some money into this venture, but for some reason I felt like I had another purpose in opening my wrestling federation. I wanted to restore the crediblity of Pro Wrestling, and no longer make it into the joke it is. Thusly, I sought after a man who could also train in Mixed Martial Arts. After much searching, I found one person who was willing to become a trainer at the new Dojo I was opening up. His name was Bas Rutten. The Dojo had two trainers. Both able to teach martial arts, but also able to teach pro-wrestling. Together we managed to get $250,000 and I had offered them ownership in the project as well, so it was a way to pay them back for what they were doing.

We managed to find a place to open up our Dojo. We called it the NEO-GEN Dojo. We put the basics in there: a ring, weights, punching bag. I must admit I was impressed. We opened up the Dojo, but decided to incorporate try outs similar to those of NJPW's. Only 12 men managed to pass the admissions test, but two men dropped out. The 10 men were trained in Mixed Martial Arts and Pro Wrestling.

The quest for re-establishing Pro Wrestling's Crediblity had begun.

The first class of Dojo boys is an eclectic mix of guys from around the country. Everyone from different backgrounds came to NEO-GEN in chasing dreams of becoming a major star in a specialized fighting art. With the help of the training staff that includes Pro Wrestling Head Trainer Rico Constantino and Vale Tudo Head Trainer Bas Rutten, the 10 men have become a complete group.

Josh Harrington, 19, Las Vegas, NV - The Local Kid graduated from Coronado High School in Henderson, NV, where he was a member of the wrestling team. He joined the NEO-GEN dojo in hopes of becoming a star in the upcoming fighting world. He is a solid technician, and a solid striker. The future of this kid is up in the air since he can either be a pro-wrestler or a mixed martial artist. This kid is the current symbol of NEO-GEN.

Dwight Douglas, 22, Los Angeles, CA - Dwight has a great look and great charisma. A decent ability in the ring, and a but lacks a certain killer instinct to be in the MMA world. He is the tallest of the NEO-GEN fighters at 6'4", and is very agile for his size. He seems more destined to become a pro-wrestler than a mixed martial artist due to innate charisma and natural wrestling talent.

Tito Gonzalez, 23, Huntington Beach, CA - One of his idols is Tito Ortiz, and he looks to become as big of a star in MMA. He even bleached his hair to be like Tito and also fights like Tito Ortiz. His dream is to be in a fight with Tito Ortiz. His stand up fighting ability to be fear, but his is also an accomplisehd submission fighter. The future is bright for the kid from the Huntington Beach.

Charles "Chuck" Howard, 19, San Francisco, CA - Another man who looks up to another to a fellow Mixed Martial Artist. He looks up to the Iceman Chuck Liddell. He has formed a brother-like friendship with Tito and the two consistently train together and give each other advice. Despite the friendship, the two consider each other rivals. Charles is a great young fighter with still a lot to learn.

Thomas Moore, 25, Austin, TX - An accomplished wrestler in Texas, Thomas has come to the NEO-GEN Dojo in hopes of becoming a pro-wrestler. His ringwork is solid, but his charisma is extremely questionable. Thomas is a passionate person and is not afraid to let his emotions get to him. He is destined to become a Pro-Wrestler, as it is what his heart desires.

Keiji Sasaki, 20, Oakland, CA - Keiji moved to Oakland after turning 18. In his high school days in Japan, he was an excellent Judoka. His first goal was to become an Olympic Gold Medalist in Judo, but once his love for Judo wore out, he no longer wanted that goal. He came to America for an opportunity to accomplish something, and came to the NEO-GEN for the best possible opportunity. Bas has suggested becoming a MMA Fighter, and is currently pondering his decision.

Alvin Jones, 23, Seattle, WA - Alvin has the most previous MMA experience out of anyone in the Dojo. He came to the Dojo in pursuit of more knowledge. He previously trained at AMC Pankerton with Josh Barnett. He is stubborn, but is willing to learn. To his credit, he is arguably the best fighter in the entire dojo and leads the NEO-GEN team into battle in any fighting code.

Paul Johnson, 21, Portland, OR - Paul has had previous training in Pro-Wrestling. He previously was training in the UPW Academy, but transfered schools after falling out with UPW Trainers over what they were telling him. He is the shortest of all Dojo candidates at 5'9", he is the only one who can execute high flying moves, but mostly wants to remain on the ground.

Michael Robinson, 22, Phoenix, AR - Michael is a lightweight fighter, who has the entertainment value of Genki Sudo. He is unpredictable and extremely charismatic. He has the potential to become a major fighter in the MMA world and is training various styles of fighting and is a natural student of the game.

Tony Zaretti, 18, San Diego, CA - At 18, Tony is the youngest member of the Dojo. He is a natural athlete and is picking up pro-wrestling quickly. Despite his age, he is very mature and is a natural learner. He will become a solid worker for NEO-GEN.

"The NEO-GEN Revolution"

Attendance: 32

Overall Card Grade: F (49%)

Review by: "The Bat"

Pro Wrestling NEO-GEN's opening show produced an interesting show. The show featured a new batch of wrestlers, and the most recognizable name on the card was former WWE wrestler Rico Constantino, who was not even wrestling on the card. Before the show, Rico Constanto and Bas Rutten welcomed the crowd and promised a new breed of professional wrestling tonight.

Paul Johnson vs. Michael Robinson - Time Limit: 15 Minutes

- The opening match of the card featured the lightweights of the promotion. I must admit, they have a lot of heart in the ring and fire, which does compensate for the lack of flashy moves. The match was 50-50, as neither man wanted to back down. THe fight was mostly fought in a stand-up position with a lot of striking with Johnson relying mostly on low kicks trying to take Robinson's base from him. Late in the match, Johnson would hit a high kick and knock Robinson down, then attempted a moosault. Johnson would miss and Robisnson would take advantage from there and lock on a Rear Naked Choke and Johnson had no choice but to tap.

Winner: Michael Robinson at 13:22 via Submission (Rear Naked Choke)

Workrate: C- (73%) Heat: F (14%) Overall: F (43%)

Following the match Bas Rutten came out to the ring and wanted to speak to the crowd. He started off the promo by showing highlights from NEO-GEN's advancement onto MMA. I must admit, I'm impressed with their victories in legitamite fighting. He said he was disgraced by the fans for accepting that Pro-Wrestling is weak compared to his fighters. That the fighters that he trained to enter the MMA world are the toughest guys in Pro-Wrestling. That nothing was going to stop his take over of NEO-GEN and eventually the wrestling world and revert it over the MMA. Overall, the interview was an intense one that really showed Bas' resentment towards Pro-Wrestling and wonders why his fighters were even booked on a Pro-Wrestling show.

Promo Grade: D (64%)

Dwight Douglas vs. Keiji Sasaki - Time Limit: 20 Minutes

- Sasaki wore a Judo Gi to the ring and looked really impressive. Dwight Douglas has a great look to him and just a presence in the ring and the fans connected with him instantly. It was a pure styles clash, as Douglas would prefer to fight striking, but Sasaki wanted to take it to the ground. Sasaki dominated Douglas as he was employing a strict Judo style taking down Douglas with various Judo throws. Douglas seemed incredibly confused in the ring, and couldn't seem to find an offensive against the Judo expert. The match would not last long as it wouldn't take long before Sasaki forced Douglas to tap out with an Ezekiel Choke.

Winner: Keiji Sasaki at 7:38 via Submission (Ezekiel Choke)

Workrate: D (64%) Heat: F (18%) Overall: F (41%)

Tito Gonzalez entered the ring next. He started putting himself over like crazy as the greatest fighter in NEO-GEN and that he would not need more than five minutes to take out Thomas Moore. If he took longer than five minutes, then he would give Thomas Moore his entire paycheck from the King of the Cage Event.

Promo Grade: D (45%)

Thomas Moore vs. Tito Gonzalez - Time Limit: 5 minutes

- Tito Gonzalez came out with a fire under his ass. Gonzalez attempted a take down attempt, but Moore had a counter for it. Moore's amatuer wrestling background was something that Gonzalez did not count on. So Gonzalez decided to back off and attempt to figure out a new strategy. The time was running out and Gonzalez realized that he only one option and that was to keep it standing up and attack with a strike flurry. Gonzalez attacked with a flurry of strikes and Moore had no response for it. It was not long before Moore was KO'd by one of the bombs that Gonzalez threw and the referee announced the fight over at 4:21.

Winner: Tito Gonzalez at 4:21 via KO (Right Cross)

Workrate: C (74%) Heat: F (15%) Overall: F (44%)

Tony Zaretti vs. Chuck Howard - Time Limit: 20 minutes

- Tony Zaretti is apparently only 18 and sure looks like it in the ring. He was taking on another fairly new fighter named Chuck Howard. Howard had the obvious advantage over Zarettin in both size and experience. Howard attacked like a rabid dog and managed to cut Zaretti over the left eye open with strikes. Following cutting Zaretti, Howard attack the cut viciously with direct heavy punches. Zaretti showed a heart unlike any other as every time the referee would ask him if he wanted to quit, he responded with a heavy NO! Howard was obviously frustrated with Zaretti's spirit and made sure that Zaretti would not have an opportunity to fight back. Howard finished off Zaretti by taking him down and locked on a Cross Armbreaker. Yet, Zaretti refused to tap out and the referee sensed danger and stopped the match before any more damage could be done.

Winner: Chuck Howard at 11:11 via TKO (Referee Stop)

Workrate: D+ (68%) Heat: F (15%) Overall: F (41%)

Josh Harrington vs. Alvin Jones - Time Limit: 30 minutes

- Despite being relatively new, NEO-GEN made it pretty obvious who was being pushed as potential stars. This match proved to be no different. This match blurred the lines of wrestling and real fighting. The strikes were as real as they could be. You could hear the punches connect and the snaps of the kicks. Jones got control early in the match taking down Harrington, but would get trapped in the guard. Jones could not get anything done on ground, and the referee had no choice but to force both men to stand up and continue the match fighting. The two men traded strikes again and Harrington would connect with a huge left that rocked Jones and Harrington acted quickly and went behind and hit a picture perfect German Suplex with a bridge and pinned Alvin Jones for the first pinfall in NEO-GEN history.

Winner: Josh Harrington at 13:53 via German Suplex Hold

Workrate: B- (80%) Heat: F (17%) Overall: F (48%)

Harrington was celebrating and Bas Rutten came out and called Harrington a coward for not knocking out or forcing Jones to submit and had to rely on a "pinfall" to defeat a great fighter. This prompted Rico to come out to confront Rutten. Rico called Bas the reason why pro-wrestling is seen as a joke. As he just belittles the acts of professional wrestlers. That being a Pro-Wrestler was just as tough as being a fighter and that the same discipline is required to be a professional wrestler. This prompted the entire roster to come from the back and the ring was divided into two sides: The Pure Pro Wrestlers and the MMA Fighters and Harrington was caught in the middle. Rutten took the mic and said: "Then the WAR BEGINS TONIGHT! PRO WRESTLING VS. MMA: THE ULTIMATE BATTLE." Rutten ordered his troops out and Rico did the same leaving Harrington in the ring alone to ponder which side he will join.

Promo Grade: C (73%)

Overall, I felt it was a nice way for NEO-GEN to start off. The main feud of the fed was set and it's stars are being established. Yet, the show was still extremely minor league as the wrestlers and fighters are still adjusting to working in the ring in front of a crowd. I look forward to more NEO-GEN shows.

Quick Results

Michael Robinson defeated Paul Johnson

Keiji Sasaki defeated Dwight Douglas

Tito Gonzalez defeated Thomas Moore

Chuck Howard defeated Tony Zaretti

Josh Harrington defeated Alvin Jones

I'm with lukie on this one. I'm really digging the puro-ness of the matches, the fact that you are using created guys, and all while using a created promotion. I'm psyched about watching the progression of some of these fighters and hopefully a few of them turn out very strong in the near future. Will you be bringing in any outside fighters or are you mainly sticking with the guys from the dojo?

Thomas Moore vs. Michael Robinson

I dig Michael, and if I were booking, I would build him up as the Young Lion for a while, and then give him the god push. He is a lightweight Vs Moore who is a Heavyweight, so reality in Puroresu, picks Moore, unless Michael is a HEAT, or Naruse... ;)

Paul Johnson vs. Keiji Sasaki

Pretty similar to the above... I have a soft spot for Sasaki already, and he seems on the level of Nakamura-ism. He should be able to deal with Paul easily...

Dwight Douglas vs. Alvin Jones

Alvin Jones looks to be the ACE and should mop the floor with Douglas, even though he has the size. Alvin should take this quickly with some sleek move, like a Jujigatame... That's my prediction...

Tony Zaretti vs. Tito Gonzalez

I HATE Tito Ortiz... But this Tito has experience over Zaretti, where-by Zaretti should be going the whole Young Lion route with Michael...

Josh Harrington vs. Chuck Howard

The two who won... Chuck should pull this in, and this could actually get him some strong heat in the eyes of the local fans, who would be out for their BOY, Harrington... Should be quick and concise...

This will be one of the few diarys I follow, as I am fully into it, and I want to be a lowly Dojo Boy getting my arse handed to me with Lariats, leading to my eventual death, which shall be covered up by the Japanese Yakuza... I mean Italian Mafia... I mean, whoever is backing Neo-Gen... <_<

Thomas Moore vs. Michael Robinson

- Robinson isn't an extremely experienced MMA fighter while Moore is already an accomplished wrestler. I see Moore picking up the win with either a roll-up or suplex variation.

Paul Johnson vs. Keiji Sasaki

- While Paul is a pure wrestler Sasaki is a Judoka, which should eallow him to beat Johnson fairly easily.

Dwight Douglas vs. Alvin Jones

- While Douglas may be the biggest Jones is the baddest. Douglas could win but Jones has much more fighting experience and is the top dog. If Douglas wins then Douglas may be the top guy in NEO-GEN.

Tony Zaretti vs. Tito Gonzalez

- This should be a fun match and I think Zaretti will mature even more as a fighter with a loss to Gonzalez. Zaretti could pull the upset but I'm very doubtfull that he will in this match.

Josh Harrington vs. Chuck Howard

- I'm going to predict another upset to add to Harringtons Win record. Harrington beat Alvin Jones at the first show and seems to be the ace of the pure wrestlers. Harrington could lose if Howard is able to connect with strikes and lock on key submissions but Harrington could use his speed to throw off Howard.

"Supremacy"

Attendance: 32

Overall Card Grade: F (50%)

Review by: "The Bat"

Following the impressive opening show, I find myself at the second NEO-GEN and I was treated to another exciting card that gave us a look into the future of NEO-GEN.

Thomas Moore vs. Michael Robinson - Time Limit: 15 Minutes

- It was David verses Goliath in the first match as Thomas Moore took on Michael Robinson. Robinson troubled Moore with quick strikes and avoided grappling with his much larger opponent, Robinson almost had Moore beat with a cross kneelock, but Moore's ring presence enabled him to grab the ropes to force a break. In the end, Moore's size and natural ability enabled him to catch the slick junior and defeat him with a picture perfect German Suplex to win the match. After the match, Moore celebrated his first win in NEO-GEN and pledge full support for the removal of Bas Rutten and his army.

Winner: Thomas Moore at 7:22 via German Suplex Hold

Workrate: C (75%) Heat: F (16%) Overall: F (45%)

Following the first match, Rico came out and thanked the crowd again. The first thing he addressed was Josh Harrington. He said that Harrington was the personification of NEO-GEN. A noble figure who stands defends Pro Wrestling against any threat, such as the one posed by Bas Rutten and his Fighters. Rico said that he never expected Bas to have such a hatred for Pro Wrestling as he did and that one day they would meet in the ring and settle the score and that he will show the heart of a Pro-Wrestler.

Promo Grade: D (65%)

Paul Johnson vs. Keiji Sasaki - Time Limit: 15 Minutes

- The match between these two only lasted 72 seconds as Sasaki made incredibly short work of the much smaller Johnson. Sasaki looked impressive in his second match and managed to trap Johnson in an armbar to force a submission. Johnson never got an opportunity to show anything, so I cannot really judge his performance. Sasaki is going to be a huge star in whatever field he goes into, he has the tools to be a great pro-wrestler and a great Mixed Martial Artist.

Winner: Keiji Sasaki at 1:12 via Submission (Armbar)

Workrate: D+ (69%) Heat: F (16%) Overall: F (42%)

Josh came out to the ring to greet the hometown fans, but his interview time was quickly cut short by Bas Rutten. Rutten said that it was Josh who had the "easiest" time in their MMA advancement and that he should not be wasting his time with Pro-Wrestling. Bas told Josh that together they could completely destroy NEO-GEN together and that was something he should think about. In the mean time, he should be focusing on his match against Chuck and not wasting his time with a bunch of worthless wrestling fans.

Promo Grade: D (62%)

Dwight Doulgas vs. Alvin Jones - Time Limit: 20 Minutes

- Let me just say one thing, this Alvin Jones character is not to be messed with. He looks like he would kick anyone's ass for just looking at him funny. He was fighting Dwight Douglas, and right from the bell Alvin Jones attacked rushing at Douglas with a flurry of punches. Douglas once again could not get any offense going as he was dominated from the start. The fans in attendence were behind Douglas, hoping he could find a way to upset the crazed fighter. It seemed like all hope was lost when Jones locked a cross armbreaker, but Douglas somehow found a way to get to the ropes to force a break or so we thought. Jones refused to release the hold after the referee's initial five count and the referee had no choice but to DQ Jones. Jones after the match argued with the referee before KO'ing the referee with a huge punch and ran to the back extremely pissed off. Douglas also had to be helped to the back.

Winner: Dwight Douglas at 12:56 via DQ

Workrate: D+ (69%) Heat: F (18%) Overall: F (43%)

Tony Zaretti vs. Tito Gonzalez - Time Limit: 20 Minutes

- Gonzalez came out first in typical fanfare, and next came Zaretti. Once again, Zaretti was beaten from post to post and the cut that Howard opened up in his first match was opened up again by another heavy punch. Yet once again Zaretti would not quit and continued to fight. Gonzalez was bewildered but continued to attack Zaretti without mercy. The crowd was behind Zaretti throughout the match and was compeltely against Gonzalez. The fans really hate Gonzalez and it was made even more clear in this match. He took down Zarretti and got into the full mount position and was raining down on Zaretti with punches and Moore who was Zaretti's corner man had no choice but to throw in the towel before any more damage could be done.

Winner: Tito Gonzalez at 4:43 via TKO (Towel Throw)

Workrate: D (65%) Heat: F (23%) Overall: F (44%)

Tito grabbed the microphone after the match and asked Bas why he was giving so much attention to Josh Harrington. That in his past two matches in NEO-GEN he had completely oblierated his opponents with his extremely aggresive style and that he should be the ace of the MMA fighters and no Harrington and that he would prove that Harrington is nothing and laid out a challenge to Josh before walking back to the locker room.

Promo Grade: F (55%)

Josh Harrington vs. Chuck Howard - Time Limit: 30 Minutes

- It was main event time and I must say it was a great way to end the show. Both Howard and Harrington pulled out all the stops. Once again, I felt like I was watching an incredible real fight between two men. Howard dominated Harrington through out the match both on the ground and striking. Howard seemed desperate at times, as he couldn't find a way to finish off Harrington. The frustration was clearly seen following a warning from the referee following a punch that was clearly a low blow. Once again, Harrington showed the intelligence of a pro-wrestler as following being locked in a rear naked choke, Harrington fell back and pinned all four of Howard's shoulders and got the three count to win the match. Howard believed that he had won the match via submission, but when the referee explained what had happened. Howard went to the back in disgust calling Harrington a pussy and that he had him beat.

Winner: Josh Harrington at 13:49 via pinfall

Workrate: C- (72%) Heat: F (22%) Overall: F (47%)

Once again, I was entertained by the show. The goal of NEO-GEN is to create the illusion of fighting and I can clearly see it. I look forward to the next NEO-GEN show.

WOW, this seems like a US version of New Japan, with a tinge of Toryumon/Dragon Gate thrown in. New Japan with the MMA influenced matches and with the focus on young lions proving themselves, and DG in that all of the wrestlers are trueborns, except for Rico and Rutten.

I can't wait for the eventual clashes between Rico and Rutten and Harrington-Gonzalez.

1. Iceman vs. Paul Johnson

Gotta show some love for the Inoki Dojo guys, plus it's nice to have some outsider participation.

2. Michael Robinson vs. Tony Zaretti

Robinson has really been put over on the shows as a small guy, while Zaretti is portrayed as a guy with absolutely no quit in him. I'll pick Zaretti here.

3. Dwight Douglas vs. Alvin Jones

Jones is the badass of NEO-GEN, no question. I think Douglas is going to return the job here and give Jones the win. Just a feeling I get.

4. Thomas Moore vs. Keiji Sasaki

I too am turning into a giant Sasaki mark. Go Sasaki!

5. Josh Harrington & X vs. Tito Gonzalez & Chuck Howard

I'm thinking Tito is going to take the win over X, whoever it may be. It's a good way to put Tito and Chuck over while protecting Harrington.

1. Iceman vs. Paul Johnson

Experience edge and all.

2. Michael Robinson vs. Tony Zaretti

This is the hardest for me to call. I'm going with Robinson, though. I don't know why. I think it's the fact that he's charismatic and stuff.

3. Dwight Douglas vs. Alvin Jones

Alvin's representing Seattle, therefore he should win.

4. Thomas Moore vs. Keiji Sasaki

It looks like we might be seeing a Sasaki winning streak going on here.

5. Josh Harrington & X vs. Tito Gonzalez & Chuck Howard

I'm going to divert from the norm and go with Josh and his partner, who I'm guessing will be Rico Constantino.

This diary rocks. I love it.

1. Iceman vs. Paul Johnson

- The outside from Inoki Dojo will pick up the win in what should be a clost contest.

2. Michael Robinson vs. Tony Zaretti

- The hardest match for me to predict but I think Robinson's experience will allow him to pick up the W.

3. Dwight Douglas vs. Alvin Jones

- Alvin Jones will pick up the win in what could be a spectacle of a match considering you have a big man versus a powerful fighter.

4. Thomas Moore vs. Keiji Sasaki

- I'm predicting Sasaki to be the ace of the MMA fighters, like Harrington is to the pure wrestlers. But unlike Harrington, Sasaki will keep his winning streak alive after the 3rd show.

5. Josh Harrington & X vs. Tito Gonzalez & Chuck Howard

- Harrington will suffer his first loss in NEO-GEN. I'm predicting X to be Rico Constantino as he is really the only guy I can see teaming with Harrington right now.

"Sin City Showdown"

Attendance: 32

Overall Card Grade: F (49%)

Review by: "The Bat"

Paul Johnson vs. Iceman - Time Limit: 15 Minutes

- The Inoki Dojo's Iceman made his NEO-GEN debut in a match against Paul Johnson. The obvious difference in rank was shown in this match as Johnson was on the receiving end of punishment for much of the match. Johnson consistently attempted to get the flash victory, but in the end he was forced to submit to Iceman's Double Neck Choke. Iceman looked good and seemed to fit the style that NEO-GEN is presenting and I hope they bring him back for more matches.

Winner: Iceman at 6:13 via submission (Double Neck Choke)

Workrate: D (65%) Heat: F (18%) Overall: F (41%)

Rico came out and once again thanked the fans. He introduced Keiji Sakoda, who was recently brought in to NEO-GEN and said that he will be Josh's partner in the Main Event, regardless if Josh likes it or not. Rico also had a briefcase with him and presented the brand new NFA Heavyweight title and said at Fighting Evolution, the first round would take place and that it would consist of: Tito Gonzalez, Chuck Howard, Alvin Jones, Keiji Sasaki, Dwight Douglas, Keiji Sakoda, Thomas Moore and Josh Harrington.

Promo Grade: F (47%)

Tony Zaretti vs. Michael Robinson - Time Limit: 20 Minutes

- This match features two of the young figthers in NEO-GEN. Robinson relied on speed to counter Zaretti's technique. The two showed plenty of fire with the junior looking for a quick submission. Yet, in this round Zaretti got the better of Robinson and trapped him in a crab hold to force the submission.

Winner: Tony Zaretti at 10:23 via submission (Crab Hold)

Workrate: C- (72%) Heat: F (21%) Overall: F (46%)

Dwight Douglas vs. Alvin Jones - Time Limit: 20 Minutes

- In a rematch from their last match, Douglas and Jones fought again. This time it was Douglas who was showing an unseen aggression. He attacked Jones with a pro wrestling style attack with chops and headbutts. Douglas managed to get a nearfall following a lariat for a close two count. Eventually Jones adapted to the attack and slowly found a way to attack Jones. Once again, Jones dominated and had Douglas trapped in a Cross Armbreaker. This time once again, a pro-wrestler outsmarted a Mixed Martial artist as Douglas rolled up and managed to pin Jones while trapped in the Cross Armbreaker. Jones went balistic and once again attack Douglas after the match and the feud continues between the two.

Winner: Dwight Douglas at 8:47 via pinfall. (Cross Armbreaker Cradle)

Workrate: C- (70%) Heat: F (21%) Overall: F (45%)

Josh Came out to the ring and spoke to the first time to his hometown fans. He said that he didn't mind having Keiji Sakoda as a tag partner, but he would have prefered fighting on his own against Howard and Gonzalez. He addressed the situation about choosing which side to choose and he honestly said he did not know which side to take and that he cannot make a decision yet. He left the crowd by saying that he would win the Neo Fighting Association Heavyweight title and represent Las Vegas to the fullest.

Promo Grade: F (58%)

Thomas Moore vs. Keiji Sasaki - Time Limit: 30 Minutes

- In another episode of Pro-Wrestling vs. Judoka, it was NEO-GEN's Foriegn Ace Keiji Sasaki taking on the Amaresu star Thomas Moore. It was an evenly matched. The crowd was behind Moore and Moore did not disappoint trapping Sasaki in various pinning predicaments. Moore even got a close two-count with a German Suplex Hold. Yet, Sasaki came back with a vengence and fought back and found a way to trap Moore in a rear naked choke and Moore had no choice but to tap out. Sasaki continues his good form going into the tournament. Excellent match.

Winner: Keiji Sasaki at 9:55 via submission (Rear Naked Choke)

Workrate: C+ (78%) Heat: F (20%) Overall: F (49%)

Josh Harrington & Keiji Sakoda vs. Tito Gonzalez & Chuck Howard - Time Limit: 60 Minutes

- The main event featured NEO-GEN's first ever tag team match. I must admit I was very iffy about the possible tag match, but the two men proved why NEO-GEN is a up and coming federation. Howard and Gonzalez showed natural team work in the ring and managed to isolate Sakoda, who adjusted his style to fit NEO-GEN. Following a hot tag to Harrington, the show down that everyone wanted to see took place. It was Gonzalez vs. Harrington and the two quickly started to unload bombs on each other. Neither man wanting to quit. In the end, it would be Sakoda that would be the downfall of Harrington's team and he was trapped in Gonzalez's mount and Gonzalez began to unleash heavy shots forcing the referee to stop the match, while Howard contained Harrigton.

Winner: Tito Gonzalez & Chuck Howard at 17:26 via TKO (Referee Stop: Gonzalez beat Sakoda)

Workrate: C (77%) Heat: F (26%) Overall: F (51%)

-Following the match Gonzalez took the mic and told Harrington that it was only a mater of time before they got in the ring and settled the score between them and that he would show everyone why he is the Best fighter in NEO-GEN. Gonzalez and Harrington stared each other down, before going to the back. Bas Rutten came out after the ring was cleared and thanked the fans for coming and to come back next month.

Promo Grade: F (58%)

A solid show that brought in two new faces into NEO-GEN. Next month, the quest for the title begins and I look forward to it.
