Minnesota Independent Wrestling returned to the Chanhassen American Legion this past Saturday night to a full house. This was my first time at an MIW event since October of last year. I missed their last event at in Chanhassen where "Playboy" Pete Huge defeated Brody Hoofer to become the new MIW heavy weight champion. That match was also a looser leaves MIW so Hoofer is no longer with MIW. Hoofer has been with MIW since he started in the biz back in 1999.
The night started with MIW heavy weight champion "Playboy" Pete Huge coming to the ring with "All Star" Paul Brewski. Huge was scheduled to defend his title against Brewski in the main event that night but Huge said Brewski was too green to get a shot at his belt. MIW commissioner Terry Fox got in the ring and told Huge that he would defend the MIW heavy weight title against Brewski or Fox would take the belt away from him. Huge told Brewski to do the right thing and lay down for a three count. Brewski laid down but got up before the three count and then attacked Huge.
In the first match of the card Horace the Psychopath defeated Rob Ivy.
In Paradise's Pit Mitch Paradise interviewed Rob Ivy who was pretending to be Zach Mercury. All the shenanigans ended when Mercury came to to confront Paradise and challenge him to a match later in that night.
Gunner Clash & Cpl Julio Julio defeated El Bano & Dorrian. As you can see in the photo here Clash & Julio cheated to get the W by blinding El Bano.
Zach Mercury defeated Mitch Paradise with a small package. Some times the good guys cheat to win.
Ann Brookstone pinned Mystik. In one of the funniest bits of the night Mystik ran into special guest referee Kenny Larson knocking him to the mat. Mystik then said "I killed Kenny!"
In the main event MIW heavy weight champion "Playboy" Pete Huge retained his title against "All Star" Paul Brewski. Zach Mercury was the special guest referee for this match. Mercury was distracted when Mitch Paradise came to the ring giving Huge the chance to hit Brewski with the title belt for an easy pin. Good thing Huge retained the belt because the pretty pink one he was wearing broke during the match.
