AWF Zimmerman, MN 9/12/2009
The American Wrestling Federation held their second annual fund raiser event for the Zimmerman high school quarterback club on September 12, 2009, a Saturday night. In the opening match Arya Daivari defeated Johnny Parks with the magic carpet ride.
Haystacks defeated Angel Armoni by count out when Armoni left the ring and didn't come back. This was my first time ever seeing Haystacks.
Cody O'Neill defeated Aaron Corbin.
Chris Black beat K-Train.
Tony DeNucci beat Thoruf Marius by DQ. At least that's how I think it ended. Angel Armoni was Marius's manager for this match and he hit DeNucci with a chair.
In the last match of the night Juice Robinson defeated Lenny Lane.
