The Backstory

It went through three previous incarnations, and each time failed. This time would be different. How did they know that? They didn't...but there was a buzz in the air, unlike anything that most of them had ever experienced.

Calls were made, money was exchanged, and deals were struck that no one thought could be made.

Much unlike Humpty Dumpty, Professional Wrestling would be brought back together again.

How did they hope to accomplish it? A deal was struck...a treaty of sorts...that would allow WWE talents and NWA talents to work in the same promotion. Now, we're not talking Triple H or The Rock or anything here...so don't get all worked up about nothing.

Jerry "The King" Lawler and Al Snow both signed on to become part of this experience, along with NWA talents like D'Lo Brown and AJ Styles.

Major League Wrestling would return to the forefront, this time without the goal of Hybrid wrestling...instead, focusing on providing a good Old School atmosphere with a product that can appeal to all types of fans.

The Titles had all been vacated from the previous MLW incarnation, and the MLW Junior Heavyweight Title had been scrapped, replaced by the brand new MLW X Division Championship, which was brought in as part of the deal with the NWA, which allows NWA and WWE contracted workers to work for MLW without intrusion from either company.

MLW: Back to the Old School

Saturday September 18, 2004

From Fort Lauderdale, Florida

-The night started off with a good solid techincal showcase, featuring John Walters and Roderick Strong. Both men worked over the other's left arm, which really came into effect late in the match, as Walters managed to slip out of a CX'02 attempt as Strong couldn't keep him up because of his hurt arm. But the tables turned on Walters, as he failed at an attempt for the Hurricane DDT. The highlight of the match was a double Armbar. The move happened as Walters went for a Cross Armbreaker, but Strong grabbed his left arm and the two men ended up pretzeled and in a deadlock. The finish of the match came when Walters slid out of a Double Underhook Canadian Backbreaker attempt, and then connected with the Lungblower out of nowhere.

-The first of two Fatal Four Way X Division Title Qualifiers took place, with Chris Sabin, Jack Evans, Fuego Guerrero and Petey Williams doing battle for the chance to participate in the MLW X Championship decision match in October at Halloween Horror Show. This match was one fall to the finish, and you could tell, just by the intensity. Every time there would be a pinfall or submission attempted, someone would run in to break it up. Fuego and Evans had a solid exchange, with Fuego missing the Zero Gravity, and then Evans missing the Corkscrew Running Shooting Star Press, and then Guerrero hitting a Sunset Flip Powerbomb for a two count, which was broken up by a Yakuza Kick from Sabin, who was then leveled with a Lariat by Williams. Sabin sent Petey to the outside, and then connected with a Springboard Plancha onto the Canadian. Evans then Irish Whipped Fuego right into a Swan Dive over the top rope onto both Petey and Sabin, but Evans added the finishing touch to the exchange, as he climbed to the top rope, and connected with a Double Revolution Moonsault onto all three men. With Evans and Fuego both down and hurt on the floor, Sabin and Williams did battle inside of the ring. Sabin got a little cocky, calling for the end, only to run into a boot to the gut, followed by the Canadian Destroyer, which got a huge pop from the crowd. Williams covered, and will advance to the Halloween Horror Show to fight for the X Title.

-The first match of the MLW World Heavyweight Championship Tournament got under way, as two legends entered the ring to the best receptions so far this evening. Terry Funk and Barry Windham locked in singles competition for the first time in years, with Funk coming out on the advanatage, but Windham went with a thumb to the eye to gain the advantage, as well as the crowd heat. Windham yelled at the fans, seemingly playing the heel in this bout, and then went to work on the left shoulder and neck of the Funker. Windham slapped Funk around for a few minutes, until a cup of beer hit him in the back, distracting him long enough for Funk to roll him up in a School Boy for a two count. Funk grabbed the cup, which was now empty, and smacked it into the face of Windham. The cup cracked, so Funk took the edge of the cup, and scraped it along Windham's face, leaving a streak of crimson dripping from just above his right eye. Windham battled back with rights and lefts to the gut, and then stumbled to his feet, collapsing back into the ropes and coming off with a desperation Lariat! Windham forced himself to crawl over and placed an arm on top of Funk for a two count. Windham stood, and set up, hitting the ropes and exploding at Funk with another Lariat...but Funk ducked underneath, turned and cranked his opponent in the face with a huge right hand. Windham fell to the mat, and Funk pulled him up, set up, and then delivered a Piledriver, pulling on the tights for added leverage, to put more pressure on the neck. Funk covered and scored the win.

-Following that was the second of the X Division Title Qualifying matches. B-Boy, Spanky, Jimmy Rave and Jimmy Jacobs were the second group of four to be vying for the spot in the decision match at the Halloween Horror Show. This match was less of an "every man for himself" bout, as B-Boy and Rave teamed up to work over Spanky, but Jacobs interjected himself and made the odds even. This match wasn't as long as its' counterpart, but it seemed more fast-paced. B-Boy and Rave hit a double Shining Wizard on Spanky, but Jacobs didn't allow either of them to get the pin, as he dove off the top rope with a Cannonball Senton onto both of them. B-Boy and Rave got into a shoving match, which ended with Rave connecting with his Satellite Crossface, which he calls From Dusk Til Dawn. But at the same time that Rave applied his move, Jacobs was caught unexpectedly with the Sliced Bread #2, which allowed Spanky to score the pinfall.

-The WWE presence was felt for the first time on this night, as Jerry "The King" Lawler made his way out to the ring, with the fans cheering his every move. His opponent, "The Natural" Dustin Rhodes followed him out, and the two men started the bout. Lawler started on the offensive, laying into Rhodes with a series of right hands, followed by a Snapmare, and then a Side Headlock. The Natural fought out of the move rather quickly, with Lawler being shoved off into the ropes, and then Back Body Dropped hard to the canvas. The match continued back and forth until Lawler connected with a DDT out of desperation, and then went up top. If he hadn't taken his time getting to the middle rope, Lawler would have connected, but he gave Rhodes too much time to recover, so when he dove off the top with the Flying Fistdrop, he only found canvas. Lawler stumbled around the ring, grasping his right hand, until he stumbled right into a Small Package from Rhodes, which picked up the three count.

INTERMISSION

Over the intermission, fans were told of discounts on old MLW merchandise, as well as new merchandise that would be debuted at next month's show, including a new logo t-shirt, as well as a skull cap with the new logo on it.

But that wasn't all. Jerry Lawler returned to the ring and ran down the fans, talking about how he's a WWE superstar, and how he's better than everyone there because of that. Lawler then ran down Terry Funk for "stealing his move", and said that he can't wait to get his hands on him in the tournament, but Funk came out through the curtain and ran down to the ring, seemingly ready to do battle then and there, but Lawler hightailed it through the crowd, leaving Funk standing in the middle of the ring.

-The MLW Tag Team Championships were decided in a Four Corners Elimination Tag Team Match, which featured the MLW returns of The Havana Pitbulls, as well as The Samoan Island Tribe, and the debuts of Frankie Kazarian and Michael Shane, as well as the new teaming of Jerrelle Clark and Mikey Batts. The first fall occured with a stereo set of moves. The team of Batts and Clark attempted a Stereo Crossbody on both Samu and Michael Shane respectively. Clark connected with his on Shane, but Samu caught Mikey Batts, and then drove him into the mat with a big press Samoan Drop for the three count. Shane and Kazarian then worked over Samu, but he made the tag to Mana, who came in and cleared house, until Shane tagged in Ricky Reyes, who attacked the knees of the Samoan monster. The second elimination happened when Reyes hit a Double Knee Attack into the corner on Mana, tagging in Romero in the process. Mana collapsed to the mat, and Rocky Romero dove off the top rope with a Flying Kneedrop to eliminate the Samoans. The final fall happened quickly after, as Shane caught Romero with the Sweet Shane Music, and then the two double teamed Ricky Reyes, ending with a double team move, as Michael Shane connected with a Backbreaker on Reyes, and then held onto it, as Kazarian used the top rope to deliver a Springboard Legdrop across Shane's knee. Shane covered, as Kazarian made sure that Romero couldn't make the save, and the two men picked up the win, and the Tag Team Titles.

-As the new Tag Team Champions made their way to the back, they were stopped as James Mitchell cut them off in the entranceway. The Champions backed up slowly as Mitchell walked forward. Mitchell asked them who they thought they were, and Kazarian sparked up, claiming that they were "The World's Coolest Tag Team". Mitchell shut them up by telling them that he's going to "heat things up, for the World's Coolest Tag Team", next month at the Halloween Horror Show, when he debuts a new MLW tag team. Mitchell ended the confrontation, by telling them that "Evil is on it's way."

-The main event got under way, as Scott Hall made his presence felt by slowly pacing his way to the ring, posing for the fans, but as he made his way down the entrance, he was attacked from behind by Al Snow, his opponent for the bout. Snow was wearing just regular red tights with black kneepads and boots. Snow brawled with Hall into the ring, where the Lone Wolf took a Northern Lights Suplex for a quick one count. Hall fought back, and the two men exchanged right hands. Snow connected with the Stone Cold Stunner, but Hall kicked out just before the three count. Hall answered back with a Chokeslam that forced Snow to kick out at two as well. Hall called for the Razors' Edge, but Snow countered with a Back Body Drop, followed up by a Superkick. Snow went up top, called for the end, and then dove off, connecting perfectly with a Flying Elbowdrop for the three count. After the match, Al Snow put the boots to Hall while running down the rest of the competition in the Title tournament, except for Jerry Lawler, whom he praised. Snow then went to put the microphone in the corner, but when he turned around, was met with a huge right hand, followed by a boot to the gut, and then the Razors' Edge, sending the fans home happy from MLW's return event.

MLW: The Halloween Horror Show

Saturday October 16, 2004

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

-The opening bout saw the MLW debuts of the A+ Squad, which is made up of JT Stahr and TJ Dalton, two students of the Heartland Wrestling Association. They were involved in a Three Way Dance tag team match-up, their opponents being the Samoan Island Tribe, and the team of Jerrelle Clark and Mikey Batts. The two smaller teams tried to play the numbers game against the much larger Samoans, but the match eventually broke into a three way brawl, which ended with Mana connecting with a Samoan Drop on Stahr, from the second turnbuckle. After the match, Dalton and Stahr challenged Batts and Clark to a regular tag team match next month at Vertigo.

-The MLW X Division Championship would then be decided in a one on one, one fall to the finish bout, pitting Petey Williams against former WWE superstar Spanky. Both men went at it hard and fast, hoping to pick up the win quickly in this Title match. Spanky hit a big time Frog Splash from the top rope, but Williams managed to kick out at two. The match broke into a fight, with Williams and Spanky exchanging stiff right hands, until Spanky blocked one, applied an arm wrenching Wristlock, and turned it into a modified Sliced Bread #2, holding onto the Wristlock to take him down, rather than the neck... but again, Petey Williams thrust his shoulder from the mat before the ref could reach the count of three. Spanky set up for the Sliced Bread #2, but Williams stopped it from happening with a clubbing blow to the back, and then connected with a Dragon Suplex for the surprise three count. After the match, Spanky handed the X Title to Williams in a show of sportsmanship before leaving.

-The first of the three Group B matches got under way, as Sean O'Haire made his first South Eastern appearance since separating from the WWE. Ahead of O'Haire was no easy task, however, as he was scheduled to face former two-time NWA World's Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles. O'Haire used his size and kickboxing background to keep Styles grounded, but Styles avoided a big Lariat, turned, and then delivered a crisp and beautiful flipping Dropkick, right to the jaw of O'Haire. The tide turned from there, with AJ coming off the top rope with a huge Roaring Forearm, but O'Haire blocked the Styles Clash, and turned it into a Modest Driver for a two count. O'Haire then called for the end, and went up top, but as he dove offwith the Seanton Bomb, Styles moved out of the way, causing O'Haire to crash hard to the mat. AJ took advantage, connecting with his Quebrada Inverted DDT for a two count, before going up top. Styles executed a beautiful Cross Body Block, but O'Haire rolled throuh, pulled him up and tried for the Widowmaker, but Styles dropped out of it, span and connected with a huge Lariat, which proved to be enough to give The Phenomenal One a victory to start off the World Title Tournament.

-Six Man Tag Team action saw the team of Roderick Strong, Jimmy Rave and Jack Evans victorious over the trio of Jimmy Jacobs, Chris Sabin and John Walters. Strong focused almost all of his attacks on Walters, but was unable to put him away, despite connecting with a devastating Chokebreaker. Rave, Evans, Sabin and Jacobs exchanged a series of maneuvers, with Sabin coming out on top, driving Evans hard into the canvas with the Future Shock. But the pinfall attempt never happened, as Rave took out Sabin with a Shining Wizard variation, rolled through, hit the ropes, and applied From Dusk Til Dawn on The Barbaric Berserker, who was forced to tap out, as Sabin was out cold, as Walters and Strong were battling on the outside.

-In a match that many have called the best MLW match to-date, Homicide went one on one with former WWE Intercontinental Champion D'Lo Brown in a Group B tournament match. Both men hit all their signature spots, including the Sky High from D'Lo, as well as the Poetic Tope from Homicide, before the bout turned into an all-out brawl, with both men giving the other everything that they had. The end of the bout saw an exchange of Roaring Elbows lead into D'Lo trying for a Running Powerbomb, only to have Homicide slip off his shoulders and try for the Ace Crusher, but D'Lo blocked it, dropped down and rolled Homicide up for the three count.

INTERMISSION

During the intermission, Roderick Strong came out and challenged John Walters to a singles rematch next month at Vertigo, saying that he knows that he can pin Walters, and that he won't stop until he does.

Also during the intermission, the ring announcer made a huge announcement about Vertigo, saying that there would be a Four Corners Suicide match to determine the #1 Contender to Petey Williams' X Division Title. The only entrant announced was the man that Williams pinned last month, to earn his shot at the belt...Chris Sabin.

-The first match back from the intermission was for the MLW Tag Team Championships. The Champions, the self-proclaimed World's Coolest Tag Team had no preparation for this match, as the only thing they knew about their opponents, was that they would be managed by Father James Mitchell. The lights went out, and some erie music began to play as Slash and Julio Dinero, both completely gothed out, made their way to the ring. The fans began chanting "Evil", and Mitchell's tandem exploded against the Champions. Slash and Julio completely dominated the match, that is, until Shane decided to take the high road and kick a field goal right between the legs of Slash. The referee called for the Disqualification, awarding the match, but not the titles, to Slash and Julio. After the match, WCTT mocked Mitchell's team, but the lights went out, and when they came back on both Shane and Kazarian had been taken out, left writhing on the floor with their titles.

-The fans got set for the main event, as Chris Kanyon made his first in-ring appearance since being released by the WWE. Kanyon's opponent, The King of Old School Steve Corino made his way to the ring with an enormous entourage, but even with his inflated ego, Corino took the time to shake Kanyon's hand before the match, showing a great deal of respect to the former WCW United States Champion. Both men went to work on the knees of their opponent, with Kanyon even applying the Figure Four very early on in the match. Corino hit a Northern Lights Bomb, but Kanyon kicked out at two, and answered with a Northern Lights Suplex for a two count of his own. Kanyon moved from working on the knees to working on the neck of Corino, which proved to be a mistake, as Corino got a second wind, connected with a Superkick to the jaw of Kanyon, and then applied a Figure Four of his own, right in the middle of the ring, and wrenching back on the knees, which he had continued to work on, forcing the submission. After the bout, as Team Corino celebrated with the victor, Kanyon approached him, shook his hand and left Corino with his entourage, celebrating in the ring.

MLW Presents... Vertigo

Group A returns to action in the World Title tournament on November 13. The current standings look like this:

1st. Terry Funk (1 Win, 0 Losses, 0 Ties... 2 Points)

1st. Dustin Rhodes (1 Win, 0 Losses, 0 Ties... 2 Points)

1st. Al Snow (1 Win, 0 Losses, 0 Ties... 2 Points)

4th. Scott Hall (0 Wins, 1 Loss, 0 Ties... 0 Points)

4th. Jerry Lawler (0 Wins, 1 Loss, 0 Ties... 0 Points)

4th. Barry Windham (0 Wins, 1 Loss, 0 Ties... 0 Points)

Funk, Rhodes and Snow will all have the opprotunity to pull ahead of their counterparts in the tournament, as each man will be taking on one of the men in fourth place...but for those in fourth place, this month will make or break the rest of their tournament, as a loss here could set them back far enough that they won't be able to make a run at the belt.

At the Halloween Horror Show, Roderick Strong's team won the six man tag team match, but Strong could not pin rival, John Walters. During the intermission of the show, Strong demanded a singles rematch with Walters, even going as far as to state that the situation with Walters won't be over until he has pinned him.

Also during the intermission last month, a new kind of match was announced for Vertigo, called a Suicide Match. In a Suicide match, there will be pre-determined ways of eliminating your opponent(s). Vertigo will feature the first of these matches, with four men battling it out for a shot at Petey Williams' X Division Title. Already announced was Chris Sabin, and just added to the match are: Black Dragon and Chance Beckett from Western Canada, and a former TNA X Division Champion, Sonjay Dutt. There will be three ways of elimination in this match (one for each opponent). After one way of elimination is used, it may not be used again, and can result in Disqualification, should it be a normal cause of a DQ. The three ways of elimination in this bout will be: by pinfall, by putting your opponent through a table with an offensive move, and by hitting an offensive move from the top three rungs of a 15 foot ladder. These can be used in any order, but may only be used once.

The first two shows were good, Gabriel. Still not sure that I like the idea of MLW changing their 'hybrid' style to Old School by bringing in old timers and NWA guys, I think they should and probably will, just move on to the new generation of wrestlers but also trying to establish themselves as MLW not NWA-lite.

I felt the last event didn't have too many surprises with the 'bigger' star(s) going over in their matches.

All that being said, It's still a good diary. Hope you keep up the good work.

MLW: Vertigo

Saturday November 13, 2004

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

-The show opened with a tag team match, pitting the A+ Squad against the team of Jerrelle Clark and Mikey Batts, who were announced as N0X (Nitrus Oxide). The newly named tandem went all out, but in the end, it was all for naught, as the A+ Squad picked up the win, when TJ Dalton rolled up Clark, and received aid from his partner JT Stahr, who held onto his hand, adding leverage to the pinfall.

-The A+ Squad grabbed mics and had a conversation about how great they are, and then proclaimed that they are the "future of tag team wrestling", but just as they said that, they were interrupted by James Mitchell, who said that they have to earn the right to call themselves that, and then challenged them to face Slash and Julio next month, but Dalton and Stahr didn't respond verbally. The two young men attacked Mitchell, and left him laying in the middle of the ring with an STO/Spinning Heel Kick combo.

-Dustin Rhodes and Barry Windham locked up in the first of three tournament matches, with Windham giving his all, in hopes of not falling behind in the tournament. Rhodes continued to pick up near falls, to which the fans responded, but Windham blocked a Bulldog attempt and shoved the Lonestar into the ropes, just before leveling him with a huge Lariat for the win.

-In a return singles bout, Roderick Strong once again tried to pin John Walters, but once again was unsuccessful. Strong kept on the attack, working over the legs of Walters, but Walters injured the right arm of Strong, disabling his number one offensive attack, the Backbreaker. Strong connected with a big Yakuza Kick, but Walters kicked out at two, and managed to apply a Cross Armbreaker for the submission victory.

-The World Championship Tournament saw it's first No Decision on this night, as the match featuring Terry Funk and Scott Hall went to a twenty minute time-limit draw. Neither man was able to score the pinfall in this bout, even after a second rope Chokeslam from Hall, and even the Funkersault from the Hardcore Legend. At the fifteen minute mark, Scott Hall got in a burst of offense, and even scored with the Razors' Edge, but Funk managed to get his foot on the bottom rope, and eventually went on to connect with a Pulling Piledriver, but could not make the cover, and both men were down on the mat when the bell rang to signify the time limit.

-The first ever MLW Suicide match took place in a Four Way Setting, with Chris Sabin, Black Dragon, Chance Beckett and Sonjay Dutt battling it out for a chance to face the X Division Champion, Petey Williams next month at Xtreme X-Mas. The first elimination of the bout came about eight minutes in, as Sonjay Dutt climbed to teh top of the ladder, looking for what seemed to be the Hindu Press onto Chance Beckett, but Chris Sabin met him at the top of the ladder and drove Dutt's head hard into the top rung. Sabin then pulled Sonjay onto his back, and dropped the twelve feet to the mat below, eliminating Sonjay with the Cradle Shock from the top of the ladder. As Sabin lay on the mat, recovering from the impact of that amazing move, he was caught unaware and unprepared by a Shooting Star Press from Black Dragon, which led to the pinfall elimination of Chris Sabin. The referee removed the ladder from the ring as the last two combatants battled it out. Beckett and Dragon exchanged a series of chops, which left Dragon's chest bleeding lightly. Beckett connected with a release Northern Lights Suplex into the turnbuckle, and then set up a table inside the ring, but as he tried to place his opponent on it, Chance fell victim to a lightning quick Enziguri, which allowed Dragon to take control. Black Dragon set Beckett up on the top rope, and then positioned the table. Dragon climbed up, and set up for a Superplex, but Chance blocked it, and then caught him with a hard blow to the ribcage, which doubled the Dragon over, allowing Beckett to stand up, set up, and connect with a huge Powerbomb from the top rope, through the table and for the win!

-As the ring was being cleared of the debris left of the table, James Mitchell made his way out to the entrance way, grabbed a mic, and said that he made a few calls after his run-in with "those brats", the A+ Squad earlier in the night, and that next month, it really will be an Xtreme X-Mas, as there will be an eight man tag team match, featuring the A+ Squad teaming with the Tag Team Champions, the World's Coolest Tag Team, against Slash and Julio, as well as a man that James Mitchell has great faith in, the debuting JEFF HARDY!!! Mitchell didn't mention a fourth member for his team afterwards, as the announcement of Jeff Hardy's MLW debut led to a loud crowd response, both cheers and jeers.

-The main event of the evening got what was considered a very bad response, as the crowd was absolutely dead for both Al Snow and Jerry Lawler. Both men tried everything they could to get the fans involved in the bout, but nothing prevailed, and the loudest pop of the match came at the end, when Lawler pinned Snow following two Piledrivers.

After the main event was over, Lawler grabbed a mic and said that they'll be lucky if he "ever comes back to this shithole." The fans tossed debris into the ring to end the night, as Jerry Lawler flipped them off.

MLW Presents... X-Treme X-Mas

Current Group B Standings

1st. D'Lo Brown (1 Win, 0 Losses, 0 Draws... 2 Points)

1st. AJ Styles (1 Win, 0 Losses, 0 Draws... 2 Points)

1st. Steve Corino (1 Win, 0 Losses, 0 Draws... 2 Points)

4th. Chris Kanyon (0 Wins, 1 Loss, 0 Draws... 0 Points)

4th. Sean O'Haire (0 Wins, 1 Loss, 0 Draws... 0 Points)

4th. Homicide (0 Wins, 1 Loss, 0 Draws... 0 Points)

-The fourth place combatants lie in the same position that plagued the Group A competitors, as they are forced to either pull out a win against their 1st place rivals this month, or be faced with the possibility of falling too far behind to catch up.

-At Vertigo, James Mitchell was out to make a challenge to the A+ Squad, who had called themselves the future of tag team wrestling. The cocky youngsters attacked Mitchell, which led to the evil minister returning later in the evening, announcing that he had made some calls, and that this month at X-Treme X-Mas, it will be an eight man tag match, putting the A+ Squad with the Tag Team Champions, to take on Slash and Julio, along with a mystery partner, and the debuting Jeff Hardy. Can Mitchell overcome the brash young foursome?

-The first ever MLW Suicide match was a success, seeing Western Canadian star Chance Beckett picking up the win over nationally known names like Chris Sabin and Sonjay Dutt. This month, the BC Bad Boy returns to MLW with one goal in mind...the MLW X Division Championship. It will be a Battle of Canada at X-Trme X-Mas, as Beckett gets the chance of a lifetime, taking on Eastern Canadian prodigy, Petey Williams.

I'm really enjoying this MLW game. I like have you've brought it back to life, and there is some good booking going on here with these shows. I can't wait to read X-Treme X-Mas. Keep up the good work as always Gabriel!

Also, I really like the way the results are carried out.

The Petey Williams X Champion thing has kept me reading,

Group B

D'Lo Brown Vs Chris Kanyon

AJ Styles Vs Homicide

Steve Corino Vs Sean O'Haire

Eight Man Tag

Slash, Julio, Jeff Hardy and X Vs A+ Squad and World's Coolest Tag Team

X Title Match

Petey Williams © Vs Chance Beckett

Such A Short X title Reign wouldn't be Cool..So that's why I think Petey Williams should and Will get the win. AJ Styles is in my mind A little more useful then Homicide, D'lo is younger then Kanyon(correct me if I'm wrong) and can Lead the Company before Kanyon could. That's why I voted for him. And Sean O'Haire just is A guess out of the Blue

Oh I said Jeff Hardy's Team because He could be the biggest part of that match, To make someone else pin him would be Suicidal. So yeah, I voted Hardy, Julio, Slash and X

Overall A good Card, Diary and Roster you have coming up

I like the Prediction thing to

MLW: X-Treme X-Mas

Saturday December 11, 2004

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

-The show opened up with a huge upset. John Walters was set to square off in a match with the debuting Deranged, whom many fans didn’t believe had much of a chance to come out on top in this bout. The newcomer battled back from a beating at the hands of “The Hurricane”, but Walters was relentless on his attack. Walters set up for the Hurricane DDT, but Deranged slipped out of it and rolled him up with a School Boy to score the upset victory. After the match, Deranged celebrated, and it looked like Walters was going to attack, but instead offered his hand. The two men shook hands, and Walters grabbed a mic. Walters put over Deranged, and said that he was going to be a big star one day...but then finished off by telling him that he won because of luck, not talent, on this night. Walters left, but not before telling Deranged that they would meet again.

-The first of the tournament matches got under way, with the “King of Old School” taking on the “New Age Widowmaker” Sean O’Haire. The match started off with O’Haire taking Corino down, and then pounding away at him with rights and lefts, which was broken up by the referee. O’Haire showed his kick boxing skills, trying to knock out his opponent, but Corino fought back with some stiff shots of his own, before connecting with a Superkick that dazed the big man. Corino worked over the knee of O’Haire, setting him up for the Figure Four Leglock, but that never came to fruition, as O’Haire set up for the Widowmaker, but Corino’s work on his knee was too much, and O’Haire had to put him down. Corino hit a violent looking chop-block on O’Haire, who only fell to his knees after the move, so Corino applied what looked like a Dragon Sleeper, only to pull O’Haire up to his feet, and connect with the Old School Expulsion for the three count and the win.

-Homicide came out to the ring with a microphone. He spoke about how he respects this business more than anyone who has ever stepped into the squared circle...but, there are times in a man’s life, when he needs to step up, and prioritize. Homicide said that he has the utmost respect for AJ Styles, but that after his loss to D’Lo Brown, there is no way that he can afford to lose again. He goes on to say that if he were doing this just for himself, he’d do it the right way...but he has a son to raise, and he said that because he’s doing it for the benefit of his son, that not everything he does will be done the right way. Before he leaves, Homicide reiterated the fact that he does respect the rest of the MLW competitors, but that it was about the life of his son, and he’s not willing to gamble with that by playing boyscout.

-In the match of the night, and arguably the best match since the restart of Major League Wrestling, Petey Williams put his X Division Title on the line against “The BC Bad Boy” Chance Beckett. Beckett took it to Williams hard, and the crowd was split on who to cheer for, with the majority of them siding with the reigning Champion. A series of near-falls had the fans on their feet. Williams had Beckett locked in the Sharpshooter, but the challenger grabbed the ropes, and then used his leg strength to reverse the hold into the Phat Chance (Inverted Cloverleaf), but Williams refused to tap out. Chance let go of the hold, and set up for, and connected with, a Brainbuster in the middle of the ring, which got a two count. Beckett went up top for a Frog Splash, but Williams moved out of the way, and the challenger hit the mat hard. Williams recovered, and the look on his face popped the fans big time, as they knew it was coming. Petey pulled Beckett up to his feet, brought him in close, and then connected with the Canadian Destroyer! The fans erupted in chants of “Petey” as the Champion made the cover and retained his title.

-In the second of the tournament matches, Chris Kanyon evened up the score in the tournament, as he defeated D’Lo Brown in just under five minutes. Early into the match, D’Lo went for a Springboard Moonsault, from the outside-in, but landed hard on his shoulder. Kanyon took advantage, and connected with the Flatliner at 4:27 to win the match. Medics ran down to take a look at D’Lo’s shoulder, but there was no announcement made regarding his condition. D’Lo left on his own accord, holding his shoulder and wincing as he moved. Kanyon lookd genuinely worried, but broke back into character, gloating and taunting the fans.

-James Mitchell led his team of Slash and Julio down to the ring, and then announced Jeff Hardy, who’s entrance lasted about five minutes, to cheers and jeers from the crowd. After that, Mitchell was about to announce their partner, but was cut off, as the A+ Squad and World’s Coolest Tag Team both came out to the tunes of Joe Esposito’s You’re The Best, Around. The foursome hit the ring and got right into the faces of their opponents...but Mitchell stopped them from doing anything, and then made the announcement, calling out the “most homicidal...suicidal....genocidal maniac in wrestling today!” Sabu ran down to the ring, and the match got under way.

All eight men battled in the ring until it settled down with Slash and TJ Dalton going at it. Quick tags for both teams led to mass confusion in the ring, as the referee lost control. Sabu put Dalton through a big Splash to the outside of the ring, and the referee called for the disqualification, but the fighting continued, as Hardy connected with the Swanton Bomb on JT Stahr, Kazarian planted Slash with the Wave of the Future, and Julio connected with the Dream Theatre on Shane. Officials ran down to break up the carnage as the fans chanted “EVIL”.

-It was time for the main event, as AJ Styles and Homicide set to do battle, one on one, in the World Title Tournament. Homicide dominated the early part of the match cleanly, and it looked like he would pick up the win, but Styles kicked out just before three after taking a vicious Lariat. Styles began moutning a comeback, and Homicide looked worried, that is, until he gouged AJ’s eyes, and then hit a Death Valley Driver for another near-fall. Homicide got pissed and started pounding on AJ, but this fired him up, and Styles fought back hard, even catching ‘Cide with three straight Lariats. Styles went for a fourth, but Homicide ducked it, and nailed AJ on the back with a forearm shot, only to have Styles catch him out of nowhere with the Pei Lei kick. The fans went nuts as AJ signaled for the Styles Clash, but Homicide grabbed onto the bottom rope, not allowing the move to happen. The two men got up and started throwing Chops, but Homicide “accidentally” backed into the referee, who turned so he could get out of the way, allowing Homicide to boot AJ right in the groin, and then connect with the Kudoh Driver for the win.

MLW: New Years Evolution

Current Group A Standings

1st. Terry Funk (2 Wins, 0 Losses, 1 Draw... 5 Points)

2nd. Al Snow (2 Wins, 1 Loss, 0 Draws... 4 Points)

2nd. Jerry Lawler (2 Win, 1 Loss, 0 Draws... 4 Points)

4th. Scott Hall (1 Win, 1 Loss, 1 Draw... 3 Point)

5th. Barry Windham (1 Win, 1 Loss, 0 Draws... 2 Points)

5th. Dustin Rhodes (1 Win, 4 Losses, 0 Draws... 2 Points)

-Dustin Rhodes has dropped out of the MLW Title Tournament, as he has decided instead to pursue a full time career in Japan, working for Keiji Mutoh's All Japan Pro Wrestling. The standings reflect the forfeitted matches by Rhodes.

-Sean O'Haire has also left MLW, but not in the same way that Rhodes did. O'Haire was fired just days after X-Treme X-Mas, as he was arrested on charges of assault, stemming from several months ago. O'Haire told MLW officials that he had cleared up the misunderstanding, but was apprehended by officers on December 13.

-Back to the tournament... Al Snow could jump Terry Funk for first place in Group A if he can defeat him at NYE.

-If either Lawler can score the win against Windham, he will move himself up into first place, unless Terry Funk can also pull out a victory, in which case Funk would remain first, and Lawler would position himself in second place.

-The Lone Wolf Scott Hall will return to MLW in February, and will resume his tournament matches in March against Jerry Lawler.

-The eight man tag team match at X-Treme X-Mas ended in a Disqualification as the madness got too far out of control for the referee to handle. This month, at New Years Evolution, Slash and Julio will take on the A+ Squad for a shot at the MLW Tag Team Titles in February, and the Champions will take on the team of Jeff Hardy and Sabu in a non-title bout.

-At X-Treme X-Mas, John Walters suffered his first loss in MLW, at the hands of the debuting Deranged. This month, Roderick Strong looks to prove that he can beat Walters, by taking on Deranged in a one on one contest.

-"The Jung Dragon" Jimmy Yang will debut with MLW as he takes on "The BC Bad Boy" Chance Beckett. Becketty put out an amazing performance last month against X Champion Petey Williams, but could not pull out the win. If Yang can pin Beckett, there's no doubt that he will earn himself a shot at Petey's title.

Again, the winner will receive the right to "sign" any worker/tag team to MLW for a two-appearance deal (at least), or if you win and have another reasonable suggestion for a prize, let me know.

I think the old school feel is working, but you need to get younger as well, because we all know that you need to develop people for the future also. Good luck, and here's my predictions.

Thoughts on X-Treme X-Mas:

Good to see my boy DeRanGeD get the win in his debut match-up. :D

Corino over O'Haire was predictable and even though I would've liked to see Sean move on, it was the right call.

Once again, I would've liked to see the other guy go over here but Petey going over Chance was a good call. I wouldn't mind seeing it again, even if it involves a few other X division workers.

WHO BETTA THAN KANYON!? NOBODY!

I had a feeling Sabu would be the guy but I kind of like the idea of this stable with Jeffy & Mr. Mitchell.

Homicide going over Styles was a great idea because you need some bad ass and new blood up in the tournament.

Predictions for the next show:

MLW World Title Tournament

Terry Funk Vs Al Snow

Jerry Lawler Vs Barry Windham

Shit Happens...Again

-Major League Wrestling has again, for the fourth time, shut down operations. An anonymous member of staff was reported as saying: "When you're spending this much money flying people in every month, your investors are bound to become upset, especially when the product isn't even considered to be up to par with the rest of the promotions running in the region."

Steve Corino was qoted as saying: "I try so hard every time they call me...and every time, they fuck me like this...I'm done. If they want to pull this shit again, I'm not going to come back if they call me in four months."

OOC: This really sucks. I was getting into this game a lot....but I guess that the company just didn't like the fact that it takes time to cut costs without completely fucking over the fans. If there's a mod or admin reading this, you can close it, because this is unfortunately the end of my run as MLW.

We were losing money every month, but I cut costs, and then had to raise production because we weren't gaining any PI...and then they fired me. Sucks to them.
