Minneapolis Convention Center
Saturday night March 23, 2013
On the morning of this event Extreme Pro Wrestling Radio did a pod cast with a live audience. In the studio were guest Jerry Lynn and Tommy Dreamer. Lynn and Dreamer answered questions from EPWR host Big D and Isaac and then from the fans. You can listen to the pod cast by clicking here.
Luke Hawx, Scot Summers and Perry Saturn defeated Aaron Corbin, John Johnson & Arya Daivari in a 6 man tag match. Saturn pinned Daivari to get the win. This was Summers and hawx first time in MN.
Black Stallion with manager Mago beat Rhino by count out. Mago was interfering in the match so Rhino chased him outside the ring and forgot about the 10 count. After the match Rhino speared Mago.
Blue Meanie & Al Snow defeated Renny D & Craven Knyte. Snow hit Knyte with Head to get the pin. Referees really need to ban Head from ring side.
Sabu defeated Arik Cannon in an Anarky Rules match.Sabu cut Cannon open with some international object. It was 20 years ago and just a mile away from this venue when I first saw Sabu live. He wrestled the Lightning Kid (soon to be know as the 1-2-3 Kid in the WWF).
Darin Corbin defeated Tommy Dreamer in a hard core match. Yep, you read that right.
HOW champion Benjamin Sailer defeated Adam Pearce to retain the title. Pearce pulled a chain out of his boot and tried to use it on Sailer but Sailer go a hold of it and used it to win the match. The crowd was unhappy with Sailer for cheating to win.
The main event was Jerry Lynn’s last match. It was a four way match against X-Pac, JB Trask and Horace the Psychopath. These 4 guys, all over the age of 40, went all out in this match. They did dives out of the ring, broke tables and dented garbage cans. Lynn got the win after he gave Horace a cradle pile driver.

A very similar photo as the one above but from 20 years ago.
After the match all the wrestlers and HOW crew got in the ring to congratulate Lynn on his great 25 year career. JB Trask presented Lynn with a Heavy On Wrestling Hall of Fame award. This event will be available on DVD from RF Video. I've been doing this blog for over 7 years now and I thought this would be a good time to end it. So with this being Jerry Lynn's last match it will also be my last blog on here.

In the opening match Horace the psychopath defeated Udo.
The Mad Russian defeated Venom in the next match. The special guest referee for this match was Mad Russians manager Federline Sax so you can guess why Venom did not get a three count.
The Prophet beat Luther Wilson III to become the new PWB Breakout champion. Once again Federline Sax was the referee for his man. It took blinding Sax with his own powder to make him count 3 for the other man.
Rob James defeated Renny D. Yes, as you can see in this photo, James showed his thong to the crowd.
Craven Knyte pinned Arya Daivari.
PWB champion Darin Corbin defeated his long time friend Ryan Cruz to retain the title.

One week from now will be the biggest card to take place in Minneapolis in many years. Jerry Lynn will wrestle in his last match in the main event. He will tag with Horace the Psychopath to take on JB Trask & Sean Waltman (AKA Lightning Kid, 1-2-3 Kid, X-Pac) in a tornado tag match. I really like this main event match as these 4 guys all started their pro wrestling careers here in the Twin Cities. When I started taking ring side photos back in 1993 these 4 guys were the top names at Ropers/Georges in Fridley.
Other matches scheduled on the card are: Heavy On Wrestling champion Benjamin Sailer VS Adam Pearce, Sabu VS Arik Cannon, Rhino VS Black Stallion, Al Snow & The Blue Meanie VS Craven Knyte & Renny D, Tommy Dreamer VS Darin Corbin and Perry Saturn, Luke Hawx & Scott Summers VS John Johnson, Aaron Corbin & Ariya Daivari.

The first match of the night was a six man tag match. Wildcat & Zero Gravity ( Brett Gakiya & CJ Esparza )defeated “6% Body Fat” Rob James, Mr. Kincaid & Renny D.
Next out in the ring was Queenie Von Curves for some burlesque action.
Shawn Daivari pinned Colin Cambridge in the second match of the night. This was my first time seeing Cambridge, who wrestles out of the Chicago area. As Daivari was celebrating his win his younger brother Arya came out and gave him a super kick.
Punk band Masked Intruder came out and played a few songs.
The Misfits (John Johnson & Aaron Corbin) defeated The North Star Express ( Darin Corbin & Ryan Cruz) when Aaron pinned Darin. I think the last time Corbin & Cruz teamed together was at the last F1rst wrestling event back in July 2011.
After an intermission the action in the ring continued with more burlesque from Musette “The Mistress of Mischief”.
Masked Intruder came out to play a few more songs.Too bad they were rudely interrupted by Arya Daivari. That guy is suck a jerk. Daivari said he was looking for a fight so M.I. Blue brought out his pal Arik Cannon to take on Daivari.
Arik Cannon defeated Arya Daivari in an anarky rules match. Cannon did get a little help from M.I. Green and Officer Bradford. (It’s come to my attention that Daivari now uses his real first name which is spelled “Ariya”. But here on his blog I’m still going to spell it with out the “I” for consistency
Next up was more burlesque. This time it was Queenie Von Curves/Hogan dancing to “Real American”. This was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen at a pro wrestling event.
In the main event El Chivas Blanco defeated “Playboy” Pete Huge. This is a must see match as is this whole event. So go buy the DVD when it comes out at Smart Mark Video.
