MCW Battleground Cottage Grove, MN 1/26/2008

Minnesota Championship Wrestling Battleground held their first anniversery show at the Cottage Grove National Guard Armory this last Saturday. This promotion has been around for a year but this was the first time I was able to make it there to photograph from ringside.
Josh Calisto pinned Little Tiger in the opening match. This was my first time seeing both of these wrestlers in the ring.
Johnny Riddlin & Zero Kincaid defeated Tommy "Spiderbaby" Saturday & Malikite.
Lover Kid pinned Rojo Guerrero. It's been almost a year since I saw Lover Kid in his debut match at a lucha show in St. Paul, MN. He wrestled against Guerrero in that match as well.
Sean Slade beat Kleck Micheals, Paul Brewster and Ryan Stone in a 4 way match. This was the first time I've seen Brewster as he along with Little Tiger and Lover Kid were the last trainees at the MPW Wrestling Academy before Terry Klingger closed up camp.
Mike Rollins & Venom beat Asylum & Lorenzo Conners when Conners hit Asylum with his title belt.
In a first time meeting Thoruf Marius pinned Arik Cannon. This match was made becuase these two were both recently on tours of Japan. Marius was there with Noah and Cannon was there with Dragon Gate.
"6% Body Fat" Rob James defeated The Prophet for the Battle Crown title in a last man standing match. James did have a little help from out side from Mike Drake and Jesse Domestic.
