IWA Savage, MN 12/19/2009

The Intercontinental Wrestling Association return to their home venue at Niesons Sports Bar in Savage, MN this past Saturday night. On this card the IWA booked a couple of new faces to the MSP area.
In the opening match Heavy D lost to The Brauler. That really should read that Heavy D lost to referee Patrick Lomax as it was after a choke slam from Lomax that The Brauler got the pin.
In the next match Venom and Mini Venom (Bad Boy Brian) defeated Tommy "Spiderbaby" Saturday & Mini Spiderbaby (Chad Strong). Bad Boy Brian was recently seen on WWE RAW as part of the 'Little Peoples Court' jury.
Big Loco pinned Craven Knyte in the third match of the card.
The Great Cheyenne made her IWA/Minnesota debut and defeated Ann Brookstone.
Arya Daivari was scheduled to face cpl. Julio Julio in a boot camp match but Julio was in out of action with an illness. Taking Julio's place was Rob James who came out in army fatigues. To win this boot camp match one wrestler must make the other wrestler tap out. James made Daivari tap out to the dreaded crippler cross face.
The Black Stallion & The Great Malaki defeated the Barking Spiders when Malaki pinned Ox. Stallion & Malaki had some help from Daivari. The Great Malaki mad his IWA/Minnesota debut in this match. Malaki does some stuff with fire when he enters the arena and The Great Cheyenne come to the ring with him as well as two hooded men.
Horace The Psychopath defeated JB Trask in a hard core match for the #1 contender. Horace now gets a shot at the Braulers IWA title.

F1rst Wrestling Minneapolis, MN 12/11/2009

F1rst Wrestling returned to their home base, First Ave, this past Saturday for an event titled "Holiday Havok". It was cold outside as well as inside the night club.
In the opening match Udo defeated "Playboy" Pete Huge. After the match Huge left his manager/valet Allison Wonderland.

Horace the Psychopath came out and demanded that Arya Daivari come out for a match. Daivari came out but said Horace first had to beat the 5-0 to get a match with him. Horace pinned both Rob Justice and Mark Barker to get a match with Daivari.
Venom defeated The Prophet.
"6% Body Fat" Rob James came out and issued his '6% challenge. This time the challenge was a pose down. Answering that challenge was Black Hogan! After two poses James attacked Hogan. This was only Hogans second time in the ring.
Arik Cannon came out to save Black Hogan and that lead to the next match. Rob James defeated Cannon after Cannon missed his glimmering warlock. James continued to punish Cannon after the bell so Black Hogan came back out to give James the big boot and leg drop combo.
Arya Daivari came out and talked about how bad Christmas is. This brought out Santa Claus and his ginger bread man helper. Santa and GBM toss presents out to the crowd then Santa gave a present to Daivari. The present was a chain with a dog collier on each end and it was from Horace. After Daivari but his collier on Santa revealed that he was really Horace and the next match started.
Arya Daivari defeated Horace the Psychopath in a dog collier match. Referee Ricky Reed stopped the match because Horace was bleeding too much. Blood was actually streaming from his forehead like a fountain. That was probably the grossest thing I ever saw in a pro wrestling match. Referee Rob Page came out and re stared the match and Daivari won this time with a roll up.
There was a thousand dollars on the line in a TLC match between the Northstar Express and Midwest Ground & Air. After Nate Bash put Ryan Cruz through a table on the outside of the ring and Benjamin Sailer put Darin Corbin through a table inside the ring Sailer climbed the ladder and took down the case with a thousand dollars in it. Bash & Sailer tossed some of their winners in to the crowd.
