F1rst wrestling West St. Paul, MN 10/03/2008

This past Saturday night F1rst Wrestling held it's first card outside of it's home arena as they presented 'In the Armory Now' at the West St. Paul Armory. The Fall is a big time for concerts at First Ave so it was hard for F1rst Wrestling to get a Friday night spot there. For this card three wrestles/luchadors from Chikara made their MN debut.
The first match of the night was a dark/pre show match. In this match Corporal Julio Gonzales made his pro debut as he took on Bret O'Brian. Gonzales was trained by Terry Fox and Austin Aries. He looked good in his first match but went down for the 3 count to O'Brian.
The card officially started with a match between Arya Daivari and Venom. Daivari got the win with his feet on the ropes.
Making his F1rst Wrestling debut was Udo, the mysterious masked man. Udo had no problem defeating Kamikaze Klecker.
Lince Dorado defeated Arik Cannon. Dorado is one of 3 luchadors from the Chikara promotion to appear on this card. After the match many fans in the crowd gave these two a standing ovation for their efforts.
Horace the Psychopath defeated "Playboy" Pete Huge w/Allison Wonderland. This match went all over the Armory as is usual with a Horace match. Horace won the match with a roll up.
Midwest Ground & Air defeated the Osirian Portal. This was my first time seeing Amasis and Ophidian who come from the Chikara wrestling factory.
Matt "M-Dogg 20" Cross made his return to F1rst Wrestling. Cross was on the third F1rst Wrestling card when "6% Body Fat"Rob James brought him out to face Cody O'Neill. This time around Cross faced James in the ring. Cross won the match with a shooting star press.
The main event was scheduled to be the New Generation vs the Northstar Express but Darin Corbin was injured recently so he was replaced by Arik Cannon. Aaron Corbin got the pin on Cannon to get the win for his team.

On that last picture it looks like Cody is stepping right on Cannons balls.

Cannon does look like he is in pain.
