F1rst Wrestling Minneapolis, MN 3/20/2009

F1rst Wrestling returned to First Ave in downtown Minneapolis, MN with a card named Minneapolis Massacre. I missed the last F1rst Wrestling card that was held at the West St. Paul Armory at the end of January as I was on vacation.
Heavy On Wrestling brought in the Iron Sheik for an autograph/photo session before the first bell and at intermission. The Iron Sheik got on the house mic at intermission and told the fans what he thought of Hulk Hogan.
In the opening match The Junk Squad defeated 101 Proof in a tag team contest. As you can see in the photo here Pete Huge of the Junk Squad got some help from his valet Allison Wonderland. Venom was pinned by Huge after Wonderland kicked him in the balls. Huge was suppose to wrestler two roller derby girls after one of them hit him in the balls last time at First Ave but the roller derby girls could not appear at F1rst Wrestling by orders of their league officials. Something about roller derby being above pro wrestling.
In the next match Udo defeated The Prophet, Pierre Abernathy and Gary J in a 4 man match. This was my first time seeing Abernathy and J. I believe they came up from the St. Louis area.
Brody Hoofer defeated Thoruf Marius in a falls count anywhere match. There were no introductions for this match as the wrestlers started fighting back stage. These two big men took this match all over First Ave, the even went into the woman's bathroom. Hoofer finished off Marius with two chair shots to the head and a body slam on the stage.
In the battle of former friends Arik Cannon defeat Cody O'Neill. After his lose O'Neill challenged Cannon to more more match. That match will be O'Niell's last match ever. O'Neill has some nagging injuries so he wants to hang up his boots for good.
Midwest Ground & Air kept their unbeaten in Minnesota streak alive by once again defeating Northstar Express. Towards the end of the match Nate Bash climbed off of Darin Corbin's shoulders and on the the the stairways. From there Bash jumped down on to Corbin and Ryan Cruz.
The main event on this night was an Extreme rules match between Rob James and Horace the Psychopath. This was a very brutal match with thumb tacks, barb wire baseball bats, barb wire chairs and a flaming table. Well, it would have had the flaming table if they hadn't used a fire proof table. After trying to lite the table on fire unsuccessfully Horace put a barb wire wrapped chair on the table and power bombed James through it to get the 3 count. This was a very bloody and brutal match.
