That's right because of schedule
problems we had to move the show to July 16. This show
promises to be even more wild with a little HLA, and if you
never heard of HLA well you better get your shit together and
get down to Ryly's on July 16th. show starts at 7pm.
The biggest part of the
show is the start of the POW curser weight tournament. POW
will be running this tournament over the next couple of shows,
with some of the best high fliers in North America.
Barroom Brawl 2005 Results
Update April 15,2005
What a way to kick off the 2005
season. POW Barroom Brawl blew the roof off Ryly’s and
everyone, the hardcore fans, the newcomers and the people on
the pub crawls had an absolute blast in our new venue.
Mentallo vs El Assisno
A cruiserweight main event anywhere
in the country, these two young men pulled out all the stops
in the opening bout. High flying, and fast, back and forth
combat had the crowd popping and after 15 minutes of
action-packed velocity, Mentallo came out of nowhere with a
cradle piledriver, spiked the man from Santiago Chile, and
picked up the 1-2-3.
Crash Crimson Speaks
The big man hadn’t been in
Saskatoon for a while, and I’d tell you what he said but it
was aimed at an “adult” crowd. Let’s just say he wasn’t
too happy with most of the audience members and he wasn’t
shy about telling them what was on his mind.
Crash Crimson vs Stevie Nitro
The newcomer to the area did what he
could against the stronger Crimson, but Crimson eventually
snapped and powerbombed the young man over and over… and
then brought the chair out. Eventually Mikey Gambino came out
to save Nitro but the damage was already done. Because of the
chair and the interference by Gambino, the ref had no choice
but to declare this one a no-contest.
Oz vs Mikey Gambino
And now it was time for the man from
Jersey, Mikey Gambino to prove himself against one of Canada’s
fastest rising superstars, Oz. This was another superb action
packed match with both men having something to prove to the
Saskatoon crowd. After a hard fought battle, Gambino picked up
the win with a cradle pin.
Wavell Starr Promo
Fresh off a number of tour dates with
the WWE, the rookie prospect Wavell Starr let the Saskatoon
crowd know he was not too happy about coming from sold out
stadiums to a bar in Saskatoon. But the man could really do no
wrong in front of the crowd and no matter how much be
belittled them, they wanted more. Ladies and gentlemen it’s
not a question of “if” Wavell will be working for the WWE,
Match 4 Tag Team Action
Stevie Nitro & Mikey Gambino vs
Crash Crimson and Van Dutch
How do I describe this match? Pure
carnage, mayhem, anarchy, bedlam. You just had to be there.
These four men tore the bar to pieces, put it back together,
and then tore it apart again. Very little tag action, but one
hell of a four way brawl throughout Ryly’s. When the smoke
cleared, Crimson was laying under a pile of tables unable to
move, Van Dutch was on the ropes looking for him, and Nitro
and Gambino grabbed him, gave him a double razor’s edge and
scored the victory.
Wavell Starr vs Kenny Omega
Talking about being there in person
to believe it, this match could also have been a main event on
any other night. And the bus full of intoxicated ladies that
arrived on the pub crawl crowded right up to ringside to enjoy
this action too. These two warriors gave it all they had for
the capacity crowd, and the crowd responded. Exceptional back
and forth action, and an outstanding display of technical
wrestling highlighted this incredible match. But the First
Nation Sensation lived up to his promise and hit Omega with a
Samoan drop for the 1-2-3.
12 Man Over The Top Rope Battle Royal
There wasn’t even room for referee
Smiling George Smiley (who did one hell of a job all night) in
the ring when 12 POW superstars piled in and let loose.
Vicious chops, devastating power moves and almost too much
action to watch highlighted this main event and it looked for
a while like nothing was going to give. Suddenly bodies were
flying out left and right, and the match came down to Crimson,
Gambino and Omega. All three men were on the ropes when Wavell
Starr hit the ring from the opposite side and dumped them all
out together. With so many athletes in the ring, it was hard
to tell he hadn’t entered yet. Wavell assumed he had won and
was posing for the ladies when Omega, who had gone over the
top but held on and slipped back under the bottom rope,
grabbed Starr from behind and dumped him over the top for the
main event win.
So as you’ve just read it was a
fantastic night of wrestling at Ryly’s. Thanks go out to the
entire bar staff and DJ Kirby who did a tremendous job of
announcing. POW will be back on Saturday night, June 4. Rumors
are flying about who’s headlining so watch the website for
