AAW Berwin, IL 9/5/2009

After two years I once again made my way down to the Chicago area for an All American Wrestling event. There were two preshow matches, one tag team and one singles. I photographed those but they will not be part of this blog. With those two preshow matches there were a total of 11 matches, that's a lot of pro wrestling so fans at the Berwyn Eagles club. This event was called "Defining Moment- Us VS Them" The "Us VS Them" is the AAW VS Dragon Gate as 3 of the matches featured American wrestlers who would be on the Dragon Gate event the following night in Chicago.
Faith in Nothing (Vincent Nothing & Christian Faith) defeated Flip Kendrick & Louis Lyndon. This was the AAW debut for Lyndon & Kendrick and my first time seeing these guys.
Shane Hollister defeated Nick Brubaker.
Knight Wagner & Jordan McEntyre (the air)defeated Krotch & Juice Robinson when Wagner pinned Robinson.
Jimmy Jacobs pinned Jay Bradley to become the new AAW heavy weight champion. In AAW there are no count outs or disqualifications, just professional wrestling. That was very true in this championship match at both men spent time outside the ring and used chairs and tables. Jacobs was a bloody mess after this match.
Arik Cannon, Ryan Cruz & Darin Corbin defeated Jigsaw, Hallowicked & Gran Akuma in a 6 man tag match. This was one of the "Us VS Them" matches as the Chikara wrestlers were featured on the first Dragon Gate USA event.
Shiima Xion pinned Johnny Gargano.
Danny Daniels & Ryan Boz defeated Zero Gravity.
"American Dragon" Bryan Danielson defeated Silas Young in another "Us VS Them" match. This was one of Danielson's last match in the indys as he has signed with the WWE. Congrats to Danielson for getting that contract. He is one of those wrestlers who's work I really like.
In the main event the AAW tag team champions The House of Truth defeated The Young Bucks to retain the belts. This was another "Us VS them" match.
